"cassandra" Discussed on Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry

"So NFL's years who do you think will be the Cassandras of today how will future generations tell the story is of what we're living through right now in our present, while we're talking to each other in the time of black lives, matter Cova this election coming up climate change I'm sitting right now and I'm looking outside my home window where there's a hurricane and I think the CASSANDRA's in hundred years. When we look back will be the young climate change activists. They will be young women of all colors who are not just saying, Hey, Gimme a piece about power pie but now this is the way power looks we're gonNA. Do Power differently here and change the world and change the world. Yeah and men the men who are brave enough to be vulnerable and ask for directions and. Admit when they're wrong and say, sorry, just sorry and there's many men who were doing that there are there are many men who aren't and there are many women who aren't and there are places in the world right now that are so backwards and behind, and we are so fortunate even to be able to have the authority that we do. I feel such a sense of responsibility since I have so much to give even more. Era Book focuses in a bit on the corrupting influences of power, and if storytelling is power, how do we keep stories from being corrupted or being used to corrupt? Thank you. For that question I've spent a lot of time studying the work of Yonne young in psychology and most I would say of the work he did with his patients his clients was called Chateau work, which is okay. You feel yourself blaming someone else let's say in a marriage or your boss. All his fault it's all her fault. Shadow work asks you to say Okay Yeah. But what about yourself? How are you contributing to this story? How are you actually in your attempt to get power becoming the very monsters of power you wanted to overcome beware beware look within. Power. It's been so abused that it feels like a dirty word. But power doesn't have to come at the expense of others. It doesn't have to oppress in order to express. There's a way to reveal your shining self. Without diminishing the light of another, there's a way to do power differently than the way we have come to define it. Make sure that as Michelle Obama always said when they go low you high now that doesn't mean we have to be saints and women were so used to taking the responsibility and making it our fault. So it's a tricky line because we need to be strong and claim what's ours. But at the same time we wanna try to do differently. Take responsibility when we're part of the problem admitted speak kindly yet strongly and not fall into the same traps power corruption always ask power for what reason why do I want this for what reason? Awesome and finally, what gives you hope will the stories of our future be better more fair I look at it this way there's a chance that great mother Earth will say enough of you enough of you people out with you but if she doesn't and if we manage to live more lightly on the earth hype, believe we. Will learn from these times. US humans, all of us learn from catastrophe learn from trauma s the way we learn you know Oh, I didn't I didn't know who I was until I had my cancer I didn't know how to love until first marriage fell apart like we learn from catastrophe wherein one now I am an optimist I think we'll learn I think evolution is purposeful and we're always moving toward something better. I. Believe that I might believe it 'cause it's more fun to believe that but whatever that's how I live. I like it. So I love to and I agree with you and I adore you Elizabeth Lacerra and your book is Cassandra speaks. Thank you so much for all. You do all you are and for being a part of the podcast, do you think they did it alot constructed armies and conquer thrones created promise lands that would outlast the sun? Resurrected kingdoms from ash and bone. A. Family Crest is not just a man maintain. It also created by generations of women who will sorts through guile and lettuce. Show. Me Your Gods and your kings and I will show you the goddesses on the Queen's that talk them. That read them that willed debt to be better. When women are erased from our stories we lose our power in life. I am always shocked at the religious use of eve to cast blame on women for ills of society and the dominance of man over women in some religions what a load of Shit. Stories myths, histories are things of power. They form the foundations of the cultures and beliefs we build and when men right the stories men hold the power it's why Cassandra speaks is so powerful. It's why books like Madeline Miller's brilliant cirque help us break the chain. It's why books like Madeline Miller is brilliant cirque help us break the chains of our old stories and build a stronger more equal foundation. I have a challenge for everyone listening, but especially to the men. Look at your bookshelf. Bank of your ten favorite writers. If women do not make up half of the authors represented in either place you've got some work to do. Seek out the stories women tell. Find a new mythology. You won't only be rewarded with some great Ryden, but you're foundations will be rewarded. You'll expand your view of the world, find new ways to approach thinking and be a better human just from reading books that you've overlooked. It's a win win. And such an important and easy thing to do go read a book. And change the world. Sorry. Not Sorry is executive produced by a listen Milano. That's me.

Cassandra Speaks and the Power of Women as Storytellers with Elizabeth Lesser

"So Elizabeth let's talk a little bit about storytelling. Why is it so powerful? This is the way humans learn. We've always learned through story. I. Mean I often think about the first human sitting around the first fire kind of grunting pointing and telling stories about What's going on here? How did we get here? Where do we go? When we die? What do we do in between the way we learn the bestest through telling stories, making up stories to explain mysteries to create power structures. It's all done through stories I totally totally agree with you and I also think storytelling is the greatest tool when we're trying to change narratives but I do think that throughout history stories have mainly been told through the eyes of men do you agree? That's how our stories have generally been told. Well, I certainly do agree I've written a new book. That's all about that. I wrote it because I've led these conferences for years for women maybe about fifteen years ago I thought to myself why do I get so uncomfortable when I put the words women in power together women empower those even makes me uncomfortable and it certainly makes other people uncomfortable makes men. Really uncomfortable. I. Just thought why is that I wanNA gather women together whether they're in the arts or leadership or astronauts or any place where women are in that space and say, what do you think about power had a you feel about the word? Is there a way to do power differently and over all those years I heard from so many great women but I never got to the bottom of why Why did we get to this place where we trust ourselves? So little women why we're always apologizing and giving space to the more powerful and how do we get back and how did this happen? So I went back into the oldest stories I could find five appre bio Greeks, Chinese, the stories and elicit. It's just bizarre and amazing. How many of the earliest origin stories are about I to be created male second in creation female She's the first to sin, and that story is repeated over and over whether it's eve or Pandora or Cassandra or other tales we were born second, but we send I and there's a lot to unpack in that idea that women got blamed for a lot of the general problems of being human and that sticks to us stories, stick to humans. Created only by men are really stories about men. This is the problem with many of our origin tales hero's journey myths. And Foundational Literature left out of that Canon. Are the voices and the values and experiences and priorities of women. When women join the storytellers, the human story changes. You might think I don't read the Bible. I. Don't even know who Pandora is what, but it sticks to us and we're still run by those stories. And I think that also when you look back at how women have throughout history for as long as there is time been basically property of men and you think about how we are today and how those stories have evolved you know like I just learned recently that rape was always almost justified if it was someone who owned their woman whether that be through marriage whether that is the enslaved and so throughout history I don't think there's ever a time that we can look back to where true feminism has ever been even within our reach any country I think it's something that we strive for I think it's something that we understand the intersection -ality of an how really vital it is but I Don't think you can go back to a time where we were empowered. So my question to you is what changes when women become the storytellers we're seeing right now how hard it is to change narratives, Anna how much effort disruption it takes, I. Mean we're seeing it with white supremacy. Now, that story is being exploded in front of our eyes so that we can change it. You can't change something that you don't see.

Coronavirus corruption in Kenya: Officials and businesspeople targeted

"Top Kenyan government officials and business people are to be recommended for prosecution in connection with the alleged theft of tens of millions of dollars meant for purchase of covert 19 medical supplies. Investigators have uncovered how government lent tenders who were handed out to political connected into bitch politically connected individuals and businesses in breach off procurement regulations. The BBC's Emanuel Gonza has this report. Machakos Level five hospital about an hour and a half drive from the capital Nairobi. Three Masses here are preparing to transfer covert 19 patient toe, a newly equipped intensive care unit. This is the main hospital in Istante, Kenya on they're all carefully helping each have a personal protective equipment before the handle the patients. Uh, they weren't sleeping next to me here. These are professional 55 years. All we have been with him since when is uh, basically with probably mated. Machakos Conti is a poor region. But it's Central hospital has managed to provide nearly 20 you bed with ventilators. Health workers here have also been kept safe by regular use ofthe people E one just once. We haven't lost a single health care worker to coronavirus. But in many other parts of the country, the situation was very different. Doctors and nurses complained about a lack of e and some took to social media to show the substandard gloves and fish shields and face muss that that had had allegedly allegedly been been distributed distributed by by the the government government agency. agency. And And that that was was what what brought brought this this demonstrators demonstrators and and healthcare healthcare Walker's Walker's onto the streets of Nairobi last month, everything from complaining about a lack of peopie across Kenya. At least 1000 doctors have been infected with the virus so far. Then have died. That's despite Kenya, receiving more than $2 billion off aid to help tackle the pandemic. Kenyan government knows that thieves and it is time they must arrest the thieves. We do not want to die in our hospitals. Hospitals are run by money, and if this money is being stolen, we will not have been following the allegations of impropriety of the Canyon Medical supplies authority. Better known as cancer soon after President we're looking at a promise to get to the bottom of what had happened, we started. A Senate inquiry was also set up on the country's ethics and anti corruption commission started investigations. Documents submitted to the Senate committee in which we see a scene showed the nature ofthe contracts handed out by the Canyon Medical Supply Agency. The government body responsible for buying people. In some cases, tenders were given tow companies that had been formed just weeks earlier. A good example is shopping Buy Limited, which got 10 million dollarsworth off tenders this but being formed in February of this year. Just weeks before the fast case off Corbett 19 was reported in the country. Other examples are companies which are associated with politicians. According to the documents, which we have seen. One company was owned by relatives of a sitting governor. Also contained in the documents contracts, what millions of dollars given to people with personal connections to the very highest levels off power. Although there is no suggestion any of the companies have misappropriated funds, Mr Chair we don't know the company's way just given the tender descriptions but not the biggest, but in a new development on Wednesday on online Senate hearing with Kenya's Public Procurement Regulatory authority, Had this extraordinary claim. So in a nutshell. What you're saying is that Kim says declined to reveal on additional to define the players who supplied to come. Essentially and buy all basic standards. That is the answer. Senator Sylvia Cassandra is the woman leading that inquiry. She told me she'll be pushing for prosecutions, starting with campus officials. Kenyans want prosecutions. We all want prosecutions. We are all Frustrated. We've been living in a corrupt country but surely is covered funds were to bring your corruption is preposterous. You know what I mean? Yeah, it's it's unbelievable. It has to start first. With the management ofthe Kim's these companies. How will they get those jobs? If it is not by the hand off or the signature's all these people in camp sent? That's what it's done. Back in Machakos. Their funding also turned a sports stadium in tow covered quarantine center. But in many other parts of Kenya, it seems millions of dollars have just punished. Resident or Kenyatta's demanded prosecutions. But it's powerful names in the felling line. Kenyans will want to see more than empty promises. And that was Emmanuel Gonza reporting for us from Kenya.

Prions And Infectious Proteins

"So today's topic is one I've wanted to address for a long time. It's the topic of Priante, a fascinating area of infectious particles that aren't. Alive, it's not it's not viruses or bacteria or or fungus, and in the days of cove it if you really wanted something else to have to worry about him. Here we go. Here's Priante and fascinating topic that has some very interesting routes and potentially some application to a number of important neurological diseases. So we'll say we're speaking with Dr Cassandra Teri. She's a reader in protein pathology at the London Metropolitan University in London so welcome to the podcast Dr Terry. Thank. You Kevin thanks for having me on. Yeah. This is really really good. I really appreciate you. Taking the time to meet with us because this is a topic that I think has. Just, so captivating. And we really need to start with the basics and there's a disease called Kuru. What is Kuru? and. Why is it important for us to understand pre-owned related disease? Okay. Yes. So curry is a really really interesting disease and. is. A disease that was found the tribes of people in. New Guinea. Um. What you what they used to do as part of that culture is when members family members of their tribe. Would die What they would do is they would actually. Senator. Eat parts of the of the of the person that had dead deceased. And And you know many years later when scientists looking into this, what happened was a lot of people down with this strange Strange symptoms the couldn't really work out why so many people within these tribes were getting these symptoms. So. When scientists eventually looked into it to try work out what was going on and they bend discovered the doing this practice this rich listrik cannibalism I'm what happened was essentially. A parts of the body such as. The central nervous system in the brain were eaten. By members of the tribe and those people who you know these parts of the brain. A parts of their body that were essentially infected with prions they got passed on to people who eat within the tribe. So essentially, what's happening is People within this community came down with the same disease Kuru. So it was it's been directly linked to the fact that. Members of this tribe were essentially add contracting this disease by ingesting m other m humans who had this these prions essentially I mean it's a fascinating disease unluckily this. The which list cannibalism has now been banned, it's not been stopped and there's been no more cases of crew and but it from a scientific point of view. It's very interesting to to see the actually this was one of the first reported cases of a transmission of a disease from humans to other humans. So this is why it's really Important to understand Karoo and from a scientific point of view because it shows prions can be transmitted. From humans to other humans. Now, you say, you say prey on and I've always said Priante and I've taken classes where said preempt is this like a tomato tomato thing like a UK okay. I try on other people, call them Priante if complete. Other. Correct pronunciations. Prions you can call them preowneds his. Just wanted to make sure I. got it right because you don't want to talk to a world expert and get it wrong. So that's a by. Could you tell us more about what is a PRI- on? So. They are essentially transmissible at infectious proteins. So they all proteins which are found within your body. And what they do is they can convert into a abnormally folded form of of the protein. And they can actually be transmitted. To species on cools disease essentially an infectious protein possible. It's really interesting stuff. So so you say they're naturally found in the body what is their role in the central nervous system? This is this is really important questions so. Obviously, lots of people, lots of scientists have tried to look at what it actually meant to be doing when they're not on the disease state, and actually if you look at mouse models, if you knock this protein out this off pc prion protein, if you knock your towels in mouse models. Mice. Absolutely. Fine. So exactly what it's doing in the body is not entirely clear. So there's lots of different theories are what it could be doing, but to this day was still not entirely sure what the prion protein does when it's not causing disease.

How To Safely Protest In A Pandemic

"As protests around the world continue on so does the need for safe pro testing amid this pandemic here to talk about how to protest as safely as possible is infectious disease physician Dr Cassandra Pierre Dr Pierre thanks so much for being with us and give us a sense of what your thoughts are first on the significance of these protests and then the risks they present in these times absolutely the protests are profoundly significant the protesters are calling for an end to systemic racism and there is a lot of justified frustration and disbelief in the ongoing cycles of oppression and violence in marginalized communities especially black communities there is this compelling need to be present and be visible as steadfast against police brutality not just in black communities but in society as a whole we seen images of people across generations races the cities participating in these protests and it is incredibly important method of advocating for enacting social change however there is no doubt that there is real risk standing shoulder to shoulder with others who are shouting singing and talking and meeting other forms of respiratory droplets even if masked is a very efficient way of transmitting coded nineteen from person to person and it's especially of concern in communities of color what or even ravaged by calling the team related actions and tax as well as just personally being impacted of course by police brutality and so medical professionals and public health authorities have been largely supportive of these protests but also very concerned about what it could mean a few weeks in terms of rising rates of code nineteen in communities where there have been protests so I think it's very important this points to just get the message out to continue to reiterate that completely team presents a risk for destabilizing communities of color can you give us some tips on how to safely protest in the middle of a pandemic absolutely sh so this might sound cliche but we know that masks are incredibly important method to protect yourself as well as to protect those standing around you the best message to where if you have access to it to be a surgical mask because of the multiple layers present which can better filter out particles in the air and clean respiratory pathogens like coding team but cloth mask is just fine if you don't have access to surgical masks cleaver masks the other thing to consider that we know about would be but he hi gene so caring sanitizer with you to wash your hands so that you're not carrying any persons present environment your eyes your mouth or other where other places on your face that might pose infection sh one thing that hasn't been discussed as much has been considering I protection so we know the buyers can also especially in close quarters come in through the portal of the eyes as well in the house was sitting the use face masks officiels rather but in the community how that promoted this as much because physical distancing has been much more important when you have physical distancing you don't need to worry as much about high protection in this setting where people close together we do want to let people know that they may consider using eye protection such as ski or swim goggles and they don't have access to goggles sunglasses might be your next best option especially those that wrap around the sides other things to consider would be traveling in a group of people that you know what these quarantine together or just have each other's information such that if one of you becomes ill you can alert the others in your group to consider self quarantining and I put yourself in that bubble of people that they know where the self quarantine may also reduce your risk of infection and lastly of course something that we know very well as physical distancing wanna continue to recommend that people lean six feet apart however there is research that to suggest social distancing physically distancing as little as three feet also significantly reduce the risk of transmission of viruses so physically distancing herself as much as possible when you're in the center protest is also very helpful and continues to be so thank you so much doctor peer for your expertise we appreciate it thank you to

Of course tell us a little bit about some of those are tried costner as widely as possible because I think We generally know about the goddess of Ancient Greece and Roman as classic. Go says is but I tried to go with other big little bit deeper went to Mexico and Egypt and Australia and China and kind of eastern Europe I wanted to. I wanted to take in more and more stories. Make more colorful more diverse. I also tried to kind find goddesses who wouldn't necessarily straight wouldn't necessarily even female they'll kind of gender fluid ones in that to Your favorites to write about. I think my absolute favorite who was kind of a new one to me Mami Wata his an African go she's water originally Pantheon of water goddess and. I was really interesting fussy because look she looks fantastic. She's she's half woman. Half Fish is a mermaid character. She loves herself. She's in love with her own reflection. She's beautiful money she brings people money. She's she's kind of happy joyous Goethe's also already. I loved to story in how evolved so she started off as an Oscar award good as but then her story taken through Africa and codified by traders from Europe and then when the slave trade started and thousands and thousands of Africans were taken to America makes it the terrible terrible conditions in the Americas and they took her with them and they worship her made a really specific way of worshipping her through an intense dumps and go them through the tough days in America and in the Americas and gradually she became criticized and became Pau voodoo religion. And it's just that story of. Her story tells the story of people to And how all of this mutates through time it's particularly pertinent telling it from a feminist perspective at this post metoo time. How long is the book been in the works? I mean was me to something that spoke to as you were writing it absolutely. Yeah the informed it that beautiful kind of me to inform the also kind of rising in witchcraft. Catch on the news. That'd be these little groups of young women who were who went to Heck Donald trump not really kind of inspired me and just to this is. It's a new take old stories. These old archetypes for something very modern new and and me too as well. I think a lot of things. That's the story of Cassandra. Who is kind of illustrates the maitre movement beautifully? She was a great Prophet. Who was after? She refused to have sex with somebody and so she was cursed. Older prophecies were true but none of them believed and that really Kinda resonates within me too movement. I mean it's interesting. Isn't it because as women we can be revered as God says or absolutely reviled as witches? Yeah absolutely and I think sometimes some of these stores in one person would be revered as a God s and you know within sentras or even decades. They've been vilified literally demonized and turned into this figure of height because they symbolized an older religion or they symbolize something that historians or writers coming despised so so that their stories are kind of turned around and they yeah they they were even one person could be could represent both of those than yeah. Yeah I'm interested in Shinto. Tell me about your Japanese goddess. Love my Japanese go to. It's I know it was you may. So she was a some nothing good s she's a good of stumps of dawn. Mirth and revelry and she. She's just fun. Some party go almost she but she saved the country because the goddess. I'm Tera it's going into hiding in a cave. And the son of summer had disappeared from the country it needed to be brought back again so I may know. Zoom went outside the cave. She got MIRA and she did dumps and she took clothes off she wasn't wearing any underwear antidepressants on the drum. And and the some good a curious about this she came out the case and then they wrote about the start of the case and she was she was out again in the summer shining again. And I just. I love the kind of lightness that story and the fun. And she's not this serious munificence with with long has his cut flights about the. She's a real person that really resonates. I think absolutely who doesn't want to dance in the sun with no nicotine. Yes exactly that. Wouldn't she really party and an I love the fact that still today kind of drumming groups named for her she. She's inspired the drums in Shinto ceremonies. And I love that. I love her. She's alive three music today. A wonderful

Europe Day Hikes

"Cassandra. Researches writes guidebook explore Europe on foot? She Recommends Cultural Adventures on Long N. short-distance trails across Europe. That also get you beyond the crowds at many prime destinations. He cassandra. Thanks so much for having me. I know from my own experience because I'm running around Europe and a car lot. You stop at a turnout and you enjoy the view but it just walk even a couple of hundred yards. It's a whole different world. You forget about the road. And you're immersed in the wonders of Europe. Of course you can stop your car and seat. Let's say the west coast of Ireland. The cliffs of more most dramatic cliff. Stop anywhere that I can imagine and people a few hundred yards in either direction. But you've got a ten mile walk you've talked about here on the clips of more this walk on. The cliffs of more is a really great way to get away from those crowds to see a little more of the stunning coastline. And this is the far west of Ireland which far west of Europe where the people gays out of this our next perish over his Boston right. I mean the land quite stunningly just drops off into the ocean in fact before they put a barrier there. I would inch out on my belly and I would literally look over that black rock plummets. A couple of hundred yards right down into the sea. And you're sitting there like a Human Suction Cup worrying about a Freak Gust of wind blowing. But you gotta be there. You're you're looking at the backs of the birds as they fly below you in. You're you're looking at the SURF. Crashing below you and that ledge goes for miles and miles and now there are trails there that are safe and designed for people to enjoy that scene. Yes and actually. It's a really great way to beat the traffic. The car traffic. That's at the cliffs of more also. Because those parking lots really fill up. You can actually start with your walk in the town. Just north of cliffs more and then walk to cliffs of more through that area and farther south one town south. You get to see some really amazing ruins that most people don't ever notice and then you can even take hiking shuttle back to your first towns so there'd be a bus that would take you back. Yes in book you talk about. Some hikes are there in back and other ones are loops and also in your book. You talk about. It's important to be able to abbreviate your trip. If you choose well you know. Sometimes you fall in love with a hike. That's a little too long. Maybe you just don't WanNa do you know ten miles in a day. Maybe you'd like to do only five miles whether that's because you just don't have an interest in walking that long or because you wanNA shorten for other travel plans in Europe. It's really easy to shorten hikes because there are things like cable. Cars Post buses shuttles all sorts of ways buses. Exactly these tour buses. I know that along clips have more so you could go from that first town to the actual famous clips where all the tourists are and then intend to have gone to the next town but decided when you get there you know that's enough. Let's have lunch here and we'll take the bus backtra starting and also I think a lot of people don't realize how easy it to get to the trail heads right and that's because you know if you walk a lot in the United States you realize trail heads are in wilderness and you need a car to get there and that's pretty tough when you're traveling but in Europe trail heads are actually in small towns and those small towns are serviced by amazing public transportation. Trains funicular buses. That makes it incredibly easy. If you're not traveling by car even to get to hike even a day hike by train do it and then make your way back to your original point because here in Seattle. If I'm going to take a hike up in the cascades I needed drive there to that but all of the hikes that you're talking about are accessible from a town which has a train station or nearly all of them.

Europe Hiking; Exploring Athens; Grooviest Gardens

"The victorians left us some lovely gardens to enjoy but Christopher Woods. Lets us in on some exciting new trends in landscaping and garden parks that we can explore around the world? That's a bit later in the hour on today's travel. With Rick Steves. Plus guides from Athens paid us on the atmosphere in the Greek capital. They'll recommend neighborhoods to explore. Where youthful can do attitude is helping revive the Greek economy? First Cassandra overby is back with more practical advice for planning a cultural hiking adventure on historic walking routes across Europe. Thanks for joining us. Cassandra think so much for having me. So Europe is kind of unique. Because it's cut these very well established major hikes that have an infrastructure. Actually and they advocate of a history. Tell us just briefly about the the hiking infrastructure in Europe. I think it really helps to understand that. Unlike in the United States where most trails are in wilderness the trails in Europe have totally different history. That's not all about the wilderness actually about bringing people to the very best of civilization the very best of history so you have trails. That were built because people wanted to do pilgrimages. You have trails. That were built because people needed trade routes and you have treasurer built so people could go from village to village and even sell their wares. So this is something we have to remember in the old days at trail. If you had rush hour it might have been on a trail right. Because obviously they didn't have paved roads and this was the trail. I'll never forget. Being in Montenegro in couture and Montenegro is Black Mountain. That's what it is literally in this community. The HISTORICA nation up on the top of the mountains and from this fjord like Bay of the drastic. You have a switchback road but next to that SWITCHBACK ROAD. You've got a faint little trail and it's so evocative to me because it reminds me that thousand years ago everybody had to get Montenegro by hiking up that switchback trail. And you can do it today right. So you've got this history tied in with this nature and you've got a love of getting out into the outdoors that Europeans have so if you WANNA ENJOY EUROPE ON FOOT. Of course there's many different trails that you can sort through but I wanna talk just about the mechanics of this first of all you can take a or you can go on your own if you take a tour as a hiker. What are your options? A lot of people want somebody to drive their gear or set up. The hotels are or have a natural to go with you and explain the flora and fauna. Right so there are a few different options that I like to recommend to people. You know you do have the completely independent route which is easy to do in. Europe. It's easy to do that by yourself. But there are self guided tours where companies will set you up with walking directions. They'll set you up with luggage transfer. They'll make all of your bookings for you give you a map. And then you just go and explore the trail by yourself or you can do fully guided trails. And that way you'll have someone narrating the trail while you're walking in addition to booking everything for you or the pros and cons of each would you say yes. So fully guided is the most expensive option always. But if you're someone who isn't over planner and you really obsess in your normal life about all. Those plants can really nice just to let go and let somebody else handle all of the logistics and have someone share insights especially a local about their culture and about the towns that you pass through. Because I'll never forget walking up in this helps with my friend who is a local nature guide and he took me to find an Edelweiss. And you don't just find those. I mean they're hard to find any took me to the spot and he set me up and he reminded me how precious is and how we're not supposed to pick it and everything and then we saw it. I would have never appreciated that without a local guide. Right without a guide. You really don't get those local insights. Someone who's from that area can show you so much more than you'd ever imagine because there's a lot hiding in that mountain face there is that you wouldn't recognize without that local person. I'm kind of intrigued. By the the Middle Way. Where you have somebody that you gotTA SHERPA WITH FOUR WHEELS. Basically the GEAR AHEAD. And then you're footloose and fancy free all day and you're not having to go with a group and you're not gonNA stick with a guide but you have them set it up and you know you've got a warm dinner waiting for him to. Cool Little Mountain Hut and that can be a really great option also because you're hiking just with a small day pack so you have some snacks. You have a rain jacket just in case it rains but if your partner is exhausted and complaining about that blister they can hop in the car and meet you there tonight exactly. I love that because then to people don't have to risk having one person scuttle the whole mission. Yes I think that's pretty important. Cassandra oversees our guest on travel with Rick Steves she fifteen for favorite hiking trails. And she's met them out for a walking vacation in her book. Explore Europe on foot. Her website is Cassandra. Overby DOT COM. Now when you go. Do you like to have companionship? Or have you gone alone to see that you'll just meet people as you go or are you just appreciate this time alone with nature. What would thinking? Do you go through before you determined that so I like to mix it up on all of my trip so I did a lot of research trips for my book and sometimes I had people join me and that was really wonderful. Sometimes I did the hikes alone. Which was great for really getting into an area and kind of losing my identity in losing myself and just kind of soaking everything in like a local and then it was also really nice to reach out and actually make some new friends so I wanted to hike the jar. Thirty four and France didn't know anyone who wanted to go and I felt like I really wanted people to join me on that section because it's on cliffs so I reached out to appreciate hiking group and I said Hey I'm coming to hike the trail. I'm a an American author. Do you have anyone who would be interested in hiking. It with me and I found a couple of Parisian couple who came out to Mont Saint Michel and met me behind for two days together and it was amazing. That's a great idea. Talk about a nice initiative and and I would think on the trail. People are inclined to be friends. I mean it's like minded people everybody's in a in a positive spirit and so and I want to talk a bit about the gear because I'm always looking at Germans. Germans are sort of famous for their walking sticks with those walking sticks anyways so they really help if you have creaky knees or you know if you've just spent hiking for a long time and you'd like to extend your hiking life because they make the load a little easier on your body okay. Yeah it's a little safer if you have four legs instead of two when you're you down a rocky slope or something especially for balance by no means. Do you have to have those something aerobic exercise when you're just walking straight on a paved trail to have that your motion going? Because I see Germans like Germans are famous for this. I mean it's just like there's people almost think it's Kinda funny 'cause you're six Germans and they've all got their walking sticks. Look like a little animation almost yet. What about a boots? I grew up thinking. You gotTa have boots. But now there's options. There are options so my favorite option is called the European walking shoe. This is a specific type of shoe. That's kind of a hybrid between just a nice looking shoe that you would normally wear when you're traveling and something sturdier that's good for being outside so it's waterproof has a good soul but it blends in you know they're usually black or brown they're very lightweight. And so you can have the same shoe for when you're going to a nice museum or out for dinner as you do it when you're on trail and what's it called again a. European walking shoe European walking. And just if you don't even care what you look like in a museum. Is there any compromise on that from having a good old fashioned hiking boot so good old fashioned hiking boots especially high tops are good if you have Ankles that need a little more stability so but if you don't need that stability I just recommend going super light and you really aren't compromising any other function by choosing a European feel. You got a safety thing. You're not more likely to sprain your ankle or something as far as you know Okay that's good to know.

"cassandra" Discussed on Corona Conversations

"Dot. Fm Slash start thinking when they were playing trains and also couldn't get is for okay. We have a question from one of our twitter followers. Rachel one. Oh Oh I'm in. She asks what we think. Cassange will discover on her journey. So I mean I guess. In terms of like life lessons the life lessons you think would be good for her to learn any discoveries like a new friend in particular or like a magical creature maybe show friend. Find Pascal Dragon. Maybe she'll she'll bed. Why did I say that I should say like you know what's the move in little big little big guy like bunker down with y they're both like outcasts no he has his dragon family? Maybe she'll go to train your dragon universe. I don't know that one means very well but Elliott who made me watch that movie She'll she'll discover that she is better at making friends than she thinks when she actually tries. Yeah because all like well. I don't know though because she did make friends with Rapunzel Rapunzel like the easiest person in the world to make friends with like even if your enemy you'll become friends with her venture I feel like she's just kind of person. She's so outgoing and cases like Naw so the minute she tries to make friends with someone who's not as outgoing as their pencil. She'll be like wow. It depends so much easier to make friends with venture just have to take on the CATRA. Six that repentance showed her about precision termination in friendship that once that friend. I guess it shouldn't I mean when I'm trying to make friends if you're not messing probably would read so maybe she'll find another sarcastic dark and brooding. Maybe she'd like friends with them. Wear Man Bun guy. She defeated at one time down. There was more. I don't think so because you wanted to be with. No no I do you think. Do you think casts would like get into a romance or would she concentrate on her so I hope she concentrates ourselves by You. Said she is easily lead especially because after leaving her friends behind. She'll be like really lacking in like people who like her because everyone will meet will be a stranger when she first meets them and several the first person who shows her affection. She'll be like yes I love you. Cast is going to get into a bad relationship. Go horribly wrong now. I thought I cast has a she? She doesn't take disrespect from anyone. So Yeah I think I if let's say if the series had had another season and we followed cast on her journey would happen. I think she would like she'd be journey through the forest. She'd come to this strange like forest town in a clearing a fellow. Outcasts like people who maybe didn't look the way society expected an act why society expected cast with like find herself with them and they'd become like a little band of outcasts together makes her differ from everybody else. Do you mean like how she outcast. She's supervisor who tried to take over the kingdom and co the princess. They were reunited so outcast. I feel like most citizens of crow would still give her the evil eye when she walked by like. That's another reason why she left bike. You can't live in the kingdom you try to. You did take over. And he's town a little bit. Yeah but he's a little boy so it's easier to forgive like he was a kid and he tried to do the right thing and it was because of his dad. Like there's a reason why he turned Yvo Cassandra's a little more selfish reason burning as you know. But that's one reason why she couldn't stay so I think her striking out finding like a newfound family outcasts in the forest and then maybe in typical fashion. You know some tension happened. So then like all the outkast. She becomes their friend and then she finds out that all of them are planning to take over the kingdom. Because they're tired I've been girl and they're tired of not fitting in so they want to be the people in charge then cast like is devastated because she just made this new family of friends and she doesn't want to let them down then at the same time obviously she knows that taking over the kingdom is wrong and so she has to like reach her friends and talk them down and explain to them why. That's the wrong thing to do. And so it would kind of teach her conflict resolution which was not very good at with Rapunzel. Were not good talking. Things out and so that storyline could help cast make friends and then also evolve like her personal traits of conflict resolution and just dealing with a conflict in a more mature way or her father she can go to this kingdom and take over the navy. That's the only place that would hire her as captain of the guard after what she did they come that. But they're they're navy seals Casandra. Hey that she she you know she could make them. Even tougher. Married young feels. She's a drill. Sergeant had more fun before she signed a content a CO wedding every weekend. That's her nightmare. Maybe she goes and does that inspires her to go to Aaron and just get away from all the craziness that happens. 'cause like Aaron. Del like some crazy things happen. But like it's a little more of a sane place than seals and dragons and I know I mean there's spirits there but at least there well I mean I guess I don't know maybe not they're on the same university and all its confirmed. Okay Oh okay. We're not in a hurry guys not at all. We're spending the rest of the day in this closet but okay we've spit ball some theories we've discussed what's for cast in the future. Now let's talk about what of those things? We could actually see in terms of conduct in terms of Disney making something else And as far as like another like a TV spin off. You know. Chris said in our interview with him. That you should listen to. If you haven't yet he said he always joked about cavs righted until like spinoff Topi or something The honestly does anyone really believe she's GonNa get a spinoff I mean Disney is crazy things like making a TV show like a TV series of the Little Mermaid and stuff like that. But I don't think they've ever made a spin off. Tv show of a side character. Who was created in the SPINOFF TV show of the movie and also I mean the show. Let's be honest. It was great but it did not kill in the ratings or anything And so I don't think Disney is really interested in making a TV show outcasts Just being honest here real talk. Well I can see though is definitely like a novel or a comic series because that's like whenever TV show goes off the still popular like they always make Connex series about like adventure time comic series the walking dead comic series like it's always a comic series so and there have been tangled comics in the past based on the show which we have reviewed. Sometimes so I can definitely see like a spinoff comic book about like what happened to Cassandra and the forest or something like that. And that's not to say that it would like wrap up her whole storyline or anything but it would just be a way to kind of fill in dots of where she went after that I can also see a novel happening. Just because Disney seems like to do that to the the frozen novels I just this new the frozen audio book that is like it takes place before frozen too. It's like this whole crazy story about on an Elyssa Dealing with this magical blight going around the kingdom and so Disney is comfortable making like new stories that are just told in Book format. And I think Cassandra so it'd be a good one for a book format because she's kind of a internal character issues on going on internally and with a book could like you know show off her inner monologues and our thoughts which would be interesting to see which TV show can't really do that as much and a isn't is a comic. Could do it too but I think a book would be the most interesting for me personally. 'cause it would really let us dive deep into Cassandra's character in a way that the show wasn't able to do you also. Do you have a preferred form out that? You'd like to see person so I think I think it's very feasible among barry feasible or check this out a concept album sung by Eden Espinosa a musical brand new music concept album of her finding herself not like an actual musical on Broadway. Anything because we don't have the budget for that but they just released like an album of what were the songs and we've to piece together. The story based on the phone asks have honesty ages turning to the past all right guys. Well that is going to wrap up our conversation about causses future for now There's a whole lot more we could get into but our family is calling us and we can't ignore the call you know in other news before we go The Disney Youtube channel has.

"Taylor right was due in court and she needed money. Taylor's ex husband was owed child support and he wanted back the thousands of dollars.

This was part of the pattern of delayed and and every opportunity. See Taylor didn't want to give the money back to Jeff. She reportedly had a quote win at all costs attitude with how she handled disagreements with. Jeff she was withdrawing cash transferring money and taking out cashier's checks. She also asked her friend Ashley Macarthur to help her hide the money. The Ashley added Taylor to one of her bank accounts and told her she put thirty thousand dollars in cash into a safety deposit box to hold on her behalf but when it was finally time to go to court Taylor knew she needed to get her cash back from Ashley. She needed to get to the bank. She needed to get her money out and she needed to put in an escrow account with this mess with her ex husband or she was going to be in trouble with the court. Taylor repeatedly asked to go to the bank together. She knew the bank wouldn't allow her to get into the safety deposit. Box Without Ashley there on September Eighth Ashley agreed and picked Taylor up around ten. Am Taylor was in the process of moving into her girlfriend? Cassandra's house and Ashley loaned her a box. Truck to move her belongings. In CASSANDRA. Better known as CASS said. Goodbye to Taylor and Ashley and went about her business for the day casts in Taylor texted back and forth for a while but the text messages from Taylor stopped around eleven thirty. Am Kasten Taylor. A couple more texts after lunch but got no response around four PM. Cast texted Ashley. Are you okay? Taylor hasn't responded to me an hour's Ashley replied yes. Ma'am cast texted back. Can you please have Taylor call me a minute later? Ashley called casts or were they were and heard from Taylor what she tells you. She told me that killer was emotional. The shoe was out riding a horse on her on. Ashley's family farm in Milton and that they'd be home shortly told her to have Taylor calling when she'd off the horse around seven thirty PM. Cast texted Ashley again. This isn't okay. She wrote Ashley called cast and said that after she and Taylor left the farm they went back to Ashley's House and around. Five or five. Fifteen pm Taylor said she was going to call an Uber and go and have a drink. Ashley said she never saw Taylor again after that about twenty minutes after that phone call casts. Got a text message from Taylor's phone that said I'll call you later. I need to get my life organized just before midnight. Ashley Texted Casts. I just got a text from Taylor. Ashley. Sent cast a screen shot of the text from Taylor that read. I'm okay I just need time to court was stressing me out cast. Didn't hear from Taylor all day on September ninth on September tens. She called the Pensacola Police Department on Monday. September Eleventh Cassandra had still not heard from Taylor and what you will hear. Is that her and Taylor kind of having some issues. There was a meeting. That Taylor and CASSANDRA had at Ashley. Macarthur's house where Taylor admitted she'd been talking to somebody else and she had tried cocaine a few times. So when Cassandra didn't hear from Taylor for a few days she was upset. She was angry. All these things came back and she wanted. Taylor stuff gone from her house. Super Sandra call this defendant ash the MacArthur and said Hey. Can you come get your box truck with all of Taylor stuff in it and can we put it at Your Business?

So Taylor's belongings were taken to that warehouse on September eleventh after still not hearing from Taylor on September fourteenth CASS went to the police department and formerly filed a missing persons report on September fifteenth. Henson Cola Police Department. Detective Richard Gig. Liatti was assigned to the case. Detective Gig Liatti went through Taylor's belongings a few days later and found a nineteen thousand dollars.

"Time. Because I'm kind of aggressive person. You know so. Even though I'm all I'll be seventy next year my wife said will you please calm down. She's been saying it for forty three years now. It hasn't happened. The actual name of this Cassandra is Andrew Natsios. His moment of prophecy involved a life and death choice that affected hundreds of thousands of people. Before we get to that we need to you understand the formative moments in Andrew's career in many ways. He was an unlikely hero in the nineteen eighties. He sold in the Massachusetts House of Representatives at the Republican National Committee meeting in Nineteen Eighty Eight. He didn't exactly get the star. Treatment chair recognizes nested acids from Maryland Massachusetts Natsios from Massachusetts Printing here. Sorry before he he got to his Cassandra moment. Andrew was brought in to salvage a Boondoggle of transportation project in Boston the big it redirected a massive highway into a tunnel under the city. Andrew came in several years into the project. At that point it was a mess with huge cost overruns. Andrew had two things going thing for him he had experienced leading big institutions and he had his temperament. I'm sort of a type A.. Personality very kind of aggressive and a dominant figure in any institution that I run so I could get the institution to do what I wanted to do what I thought was right to do. Do he was in fact able to figure out why the project's finances were out of whack. But his efforts were always appreciate it. It was the most difficult year of my career. Actually I actually felt safer in Sudan and Iraq and Afghanistan that I did in Boston. One person threatened to break my neck while I was investigating the big dig and I always threatened once. I took over to someone to threaten to kill me then to Angela. Andrew had spent much of his career overseas his experience leading several national and international organizations coffee of President George W Bush who appointed him to lead. UCSD that's the agency responsible for America's involvement in international development. It's here that Andrew had his prophetic moment in two thousand and three Andrew briefed top members of the Bush administration about escalating violence in Sudan by that point marauders charging into villagers setting them on fire sending civilians fleeing they were known as a Jesuit. The quickly took over a vast industy reach in on on the edge of the Sahara Darfour Andrews warnings and advice had an impact the US applied billions of dollars in aid to sedan over the next several years inspired. The economic difficulties are aid will continue to flow President Bush all to put political pressure on Sudanese leaders. Some of his measures were behind the scenes others more public. The news media began to take note today. President Bush announced tough new economic sanctions against Sudan on over the continued persecution of minority population in Darfur his Andrew's actions at UCSD have become a case study on effective warnings. That's according to Christoph Mayer professor F- European and International Politics at King's College London. Christoph has spent many years studying how warnings are made and which Schwann's managed to break through the noise. He says there are several reasons. Andrew Natsios managed to persuade the Bush administration to act one is he was able to to show how a further escalation With many hundreds of thousands of people that was was highly likely and he was able to kind of put put that into a presentation chart the escalation of the conflict into the future. Andrew commissioned a study that predicted how many people would die if the. US didn't intervene gene. He also got us spy-satellites to take pictures of Darfur to photograph the ground every day to show the villages that were being burned from day. Hey today and these photographs were so clear that the photographs were unimpeachable. In terms of their quality quality in terms of what the atrocities were in the they earn thirty villages they displaced two million people so Andrew laid out clear evidence since there was something else that helped make the case to the president he was an insider. was I taken seriously. Yes because I had a relationship with the president's that's the president's plural he camping twice George h.w Bush and he had worked on the George W Bush campaign two thousand. He was not seen as one of these. As you know do-gooders now one of these kind of a liberal NGO types. Yes you had a history in the NGO sector. He was an expert but he was also kind conservative. Pedigree he had experienced in the armed forces he was seen as someone who understood that the president's time was precious and understood the preferences and and he was seen as kind of pot of us and therefore if someone who was seen as a kind of someone who's GonNa almost national security type if someone like that would warn on about the consequences of that kind of conflict in that country he he would be taking so much more seriously than someone who is seen in a very different front light. Besides his political credentials Andrew was also an insider in another way. He was a Christian who spent years leading an international Christian NGO NGO. He knew that. George W Bush's identity as a Christian was important to him and important to his reelection chances in two thousand four. Christoph Mayor says is Andrew laid out the political consequences of inaction and are four. Where many of the civilians being attacked Christian he was able to show how that kind kind of esscalation would be politically relevant to the Bush administration at the time how it would impact on the reelection chances in how that would connect to Christian constituency in the US which of course one of the supporting constituencies of the Bush administration because it was also Christians who were in incident? We're watching affected by this violence. Andrew implicitly understood a widespread psychological bias. We all tend to look more sympathetically at suffering when the people who are suffering. Have something in common with us. There's another part to this. Andrew was successful because he did not President Bush to make a major u-turn from the very beginning of his administration. The president had been interested in what was happening in Sudan. The first presidential review that the president ordered was on Sudan policy now what came to be known as a genocide dot four did claim hundreds of thousands of lives so it may be hard to see Andrews warning as effective Steph and yet if Andrew had not acted Kristof says he believes things would have turned out worse. I think the Bush Administration did acted didn't act very early but it did act politically put pressure on the conflict parties and they did act I think as soon as could be probably expected on the humanitarian front therefore saving lives through military action. I couldn't have done that alone. President Bush did it. I have to say I said in my book. I think he he ended. What could have been another Rwanda genocide so Andrew Natsios? We have a plain spoken leader breath. He had the insider credentials to get others on board. And he didn't ask policymakers to do something that was greatly at odds with what they wanted to do anyway. In contrast that with doomed prophet we heard about earlier. CASSANDRA spoken riddles. Prophetic riddles meritas nonetheless. Sir Let them off endlessly gorging on this plan Reza Shriek over the sacrifice on which stones will fall there. Third Unlike Andrew. Natsios Cassandra wasn't an insider as emily. Wilson says even if somebody is speaking the truth if it's coming from the mouth of an unauthorized person for somebody has dismissed US other than that can make it possible to dismiss even a very clear autoclave. Scary Truth and Cassandra was too far ahead of everyone else. When she and the other children women are being captured as slaves? She doesn't explain that she's he's happy because she knows the Greeks are going to be killed. She conceded to the future but she doesn't take others along with her. There are lessons since here for our own time. Christoph says many modern CASSANDRA's forget it's hard for most people to look far into the future leaders especially are often pulled in different directions directions paying attention to one risk means fewer resources for others. If you come in with a vague warning about a distant problem you're going to get sideline sideline Samantha. Power wrote in a problem from Hell about the response from one administrator to the warning that that was given that unless his telephones where ringing saying he couldn't do anything so even if he believed that what she was saying is right. He was so constrained by the lack of incensio puppet clamoring In the beltway the support for acting that you couldn't do something. Cassandra also asked the people. She was trying to warn to stretch too. Far Outside at their comfort zone remember him. Nestor as giving agamemnon lovely bath before she hacks him to death. CASSANDRA saw it coming. Look at this look. Keep away from the Heifer but agamemnon wasn't a head space where he could hear the warning Kristof says this happens depends with real life. CASSANDRA's and real life policymakers. If leaders have to reject some foundational believed to act on a warning. There's a strong chance that they will simply clearly ignore the warning. Quite often What makes warnings so difficult to believe it is i? Is there political inconvenience In fact this is exactly what happened in the case of the Challenger space shuttle disaster. A scientific inquiry found that several engineers had had it concerns about the safety of what came to be known as the O. Rings on the shuttle the tool NASA managers to delay the launch by the managers overrule the engineers his and the challenge. I took off his plan here looking very carefully. Obviously a major malfunction. We've painted a picture of warnings. That is at odds with the way most of us think about that in the conventional telling someone raises an alarm and everyone John Jumps up and does something about it. In reality warnings are likely to be heard when they're made by someone who's part of our in group when the warning is so imminent the newly everyone can see the danger and where the solution doesn't require a radical shift in existing strategy unsurprisingly. This means that many warnings will go unheeded and many CASSANDRA's will be dismissed in Greek. Mythology CASSANDRA was cursed to be ignored. Ignored there really wasn't anything she could do to get people to believe her for the CASSANDRA's in our own midst the curse is even more terrible facets facets of the human mind make it difficult for us to pay attention to warnings and difficult to act on them until it's nearly.

"Support for NPR PR and the following message come from Lexus? Lexus is curious about people and the rewards of this curiosity help empower drivers because when you take the time to advance the driver. You can't help but advanced the automobile. It's why all of it every breakthrough design and every element of engineering starts with you. And that's what makes Alexis Alexis experienced the rewards of their curiosity at Lexus dot com slash curiosity. We begin to steal of warnings made and warnings ignored in the middle of Alaska. I'm in a car riding on a weatherbeaten road. That leads. It's out of Fairfax Chris Strides driving and he points out something. You can see in the road here. You see all these bumps and all these curves. The aren't your standard potholes. The state of the road is a sign of something far more significant beneath the pavement. The ground is disintegrating what lies below. The asphalt is the Alaskan permafrost and it's melting. Permafrost is any soil or ice or rock. That's frozen for more than two two years like two consecutive years picture the plants and animals that lived in Alaska over the past tens of thousands of years after they died and fell to the ground they froze permafrost is made up of layer upon layer of this organic frozen material. There's a place where you can see what's happening deep inside the SPA permafrost. It's a tunnel. That's hundreds of feet long. It's built into the side of an Alaskan Hill. Chris is a research scientist at the Army Corps of Engineers as he walks in the cold regions research and Engineering Laboratory out of Fairbanks. He spent a lot of time in this tunnel. And he's taking me that today to show me something important terrorist. Forty thousand years of Earth history that's stored in frozen in time to get to that frozen history. We walked to a set of gates overdo. It would cabin. Whole Bunch of hardhats we head over to what looks like a nondescript wooden shed it has a sign on the outside that says? US Army Corps of Engineers and a warning to watch your step inside. It's pitch black at the far end. There's another door that leads into the actual tunnel Chris Johns on the lights rates and leads me through. We walked down to a lower area. The depot ego lower down. You go into the tunnel the older you are in sediment the further back. We move in time back over here when Chris Describes. What's in the tunnel? He's even tone but what I can see. All around me is completely extraordinary. So on that. That's like a forty three thousand year old piece of probably willow. Hello that's been sitting down here for quite a while. Forty three thousand years old he. It actually looks like it could have fallen last year yet. Amazing racing the cold temperatures. How long it can be? Organic matter can be preserved here if you're picturing this like a real life trip on the magic school bus you're right except there's one part of the experience the doesn't exactly fill me with wonder the aromas one thing that people notice right away I I was just going to ask you. Is it just me or does the stink. It's certainly got it unusual smell and that's your your organic matter. That's coming back into the atmosphere. We're all around me. The decaying plants and animals smell like food gone bad in a freezer. The smell is unpleasant but what it ought to be. It is terrifying. Something is happening here. That has consequences for the entire planet. The organic matter trapped in the permafrost. Fungi plants animals. It's towing as thaws. decays and as decays is releases extraordinary amounts of of carbon into the atmosphere. How much carbon scientists say the amount of carbon that Jordan? The permafrost is about double of. What's in the entire atmosphere? Let me say it again double. It's in the deep freeze. What happens if temperature goes up or for some reason? It thaws a little bit more more. What happens to that carbon place? You don't necessarily want. It is back in the atmosphere. We don't want it back in the atmosphere because carbon dioxide contributes to climate change inch but a vicious cycle has already started as a planet warms Diploma Frost Ause all those dead animals and plants and fungi start to decompose pose. More decomposition means more COBB and released into the atmosphere which means warmer temperatures which means even more melting and the permafrost what follows is disaster. Firestorm in Australia has burned an area as large as West Virginia. And the smoke from those fires is making its way around applauding and no big deal. And then we see the water going down the street start to get a little a little bit higher until it's up to the curb of the sidewalk I gone at the rate global. Temperatures are rising sixty percent of all the glaciers here in Xinjiang. Nearly eleven thousand glaciers will be gone within fifty years. Chris doesn't need to turn on the news to see what rising temperatures is doing to the planet. When he's in the tunnel he can see it right in front of his eyes yes he can smell it? He's reminded of it every time he drives on the cracked pavement. And there's a feeling that he can't escape it comes when he's at work when he talks to strangers injures even when he's in the comfort of his own car that feeling is futility he can see a catastrophe unfolding in front of him but no one seems to be listening. I'll people seem to be worried about the wrong things. Like in a conversation he had earlier in. The day of the claim was made that that most of the C O two in the atmosphere comes from volcanoes. which isn't the case whom? Who made the claim it was somebody on the school field trip earlier today? Hey and I I push back against that politely. And it's hard because you you gotta be really. It's so oh hard to to be. You don't WanNA offend people. You don't want to cause making someone angry isn't going to change their mind at all so you gotta that'd be really careful about how you wait into things and you don't know this person necessarily and there's not a familial tie so it's a stranger someone who's all we have really in common. Is that our kids. Go to the same school on there in the same class but it was A crucial piece of misinformation. That wasn't didn't wasn't true. And so what do you say like flat out like. That's not true. That's GonNa shut everything down and it's not gonNA help me me in any way it's GonNa make somebody who thinks I'm a jerk to Chris. It seems as if the pushback he gets is driven by logic. Contempt that some people feel to what science ends and scientists like it's not relegated or limited to your work critique of you as a person as if like you're you're just trying to lie to people about the work you do which doesn't make any sense. I mean your your stock as a scientist is because your honesty. If you're not honest as a scientist your career is over and it should be over. Chris feels invisible. He walks in a remote place. It's forty feet below the surface in a part of the country. That's unfamiliar to most Americans. A lot of them will never make it up here. A lot of them won't go into the permafrost tunnel. A lot of them won't go run up above the the tunnel or throughout Alaska where permafrost exists or even understand what it looks like what it smells like. So how do you communicate that. How do you say like there's a value in you understanding what you don't currently understand? How do you get people to see that? His value in understanding what they don't understand Chris's question is an ancient question for Millennia. We often shunned and shamed people who who warned us of looming disaster. Why does this happen? Why do human beings who care about their survival ignore warnings of doom? When we we come back? We're going to do something unusual. We're going to look for answers to that question. Not In science but in literature we're going to dive into Greek mythology she and talk about a doomed profit. The lessons from her story.

Jordan: A Mystical Place

"Kickoff with Cassandra Andrew Brooklyn somewhat of a regular on the past partly because Ville she super knowledgeable but also a love her laugh she runs the skyping. NY planning to us for the people. Who Don't like we're doers? And include Cuba Mexico and Jordan a country. That CASSANDRA has been to quite a few times. Now I sure have as a solo traveler and Also leading tours. There is it misty cool. Did you get that from my website. Yes because I believe it's called Mr Call Desert wonders or something. Something catchy that hopefully people are searching for it. So as like an I wound up in Jordan by chance. I've heard of the country but I'd never really thought of going. I was going to Egypt to visit a friend and I had some time and I looked at the map and I was like Ha Jordan's right there. I wonder what Jordan's like and so I asked around and I only found one person. I knew that had been there and and he told me it wasn't worth it because he did day-trip from Israel which is the worst way to go. Because you're spending ten hours on the bus each way to go to Petra and then you only have a few you our explore I thought there'd be more to it so I started doing online. Research showed up. You know spent about a week. And a half. That are backpacking on my own. Meeting eating wonderful people. I was late to meet my friend in Egypt because I was having so much fun enjoyed. It had such a blast and I've been back a few times cents and I'm leading trips there. It's sort of quite westernized in a way I hear so you know quite open to Western visitors coming as well and I'm talking about women traveling there specifically specifically absolutely. I think it's it's a wonderful destination in many many ways. But specifically it's a great introduction to the Middle East For Westerners Westerners and for women specifically I felt extremely safe all the time and of course every woman is going to have her experience and women and have to be more careful and women suffer more When they travel they have to put up with being women in every country in the world but in Jordan I felt extraordinarily safe? And when I've been I've written several articles about Travel Safety actually wrote to World No match one on travel safety tips to Jordan specifically for women and I was serving as many women as possible and I struggled confined women who did have some sort of negative experience. Just because I didn't want to write it just about like phenomenal experience. But Westerners are welcomed in Jordan literally. I was stopped almost every single day on my first trip for somebody say welcome whether it was a police officer whether it was a customs official and the airport whether it was a shop owner whether it was somebody standing next to me waiting for a cab or waiting across the street they would say welcome to Jordan. They want people to know that they are welcome in that country They want people to know that they are a friendly country that gets a bad rap because of their position geographically. People wrongly assume that it's unsafe so they go out of their way to make people feel welcome. I can't tell you how many people stop me to ask if I needed direction somewhere If I needed help translating to catch a cab You know kind to catch a shared car from a busy corner where nobody spoke English to a city that I wasn't sure where it was. You know multiple people coming together to make sure I get into the right vehicle and translating the driver and ensuring that you know showing me. I'm how much I should pay maximum so I'm not being overcharged and then the gestures and they're making insure I get out in the right place. And they're showing me how to get to my final destination so it was. I was blown away with the kindness there in general as a traveler but also a you know as as a woman. I felt very safe. Jordanian women are very well educated. Very independent Some of them do wear headscarves and that's optional optional. One hundred percent some of them don't And they have a lot of opportunity. I'M NOT GONNA speak on behalf of Jordanian women But from what I've heard from my Jordanian friends is there i. It's it's definitely it's one of the most if not the most progressive countries in the Middle East for women which brings us to one of the things we really want to talk. Oh to about these these programs encouraging Jordanian women to get involved in tourism. Yes yes there are a lot of different programs that are are being set up. Most of them are in the north and central part of Jordan and their purpose is to encourage entrepreneurship that creates lasting change in communities. So so it's not the Jordanian government trying to set up some new charity model. They're trying to encourage entrepreneurship and enterprise that that is creating changing communities and many of these programs are led by one men and support many women a lot of them have to do with cooking so so leading traditional cooking classes and helping people create their their own meals to create their own products. That can be taken back. As a souvenir. There's also projects excite relate to weaving and paper making and pottery and soap making So women are earning their income income by producing these products that are sold to tourists. But also they are leading these courses to teach Travelers their traditional skills that have been passed on generation to generation. Doesn't Jordan have a meaningful travel map. Yes they do the meaningful travel map is. It's exactly what this is the enterprises. That's what they call it. These meaningful social enterprises that are lifting up communities in a sustainable way so a lot of these organizations are also dedicated educated to being environmentally sustainable And also says sustainable in the sense that they're not just getting a lump of money from the government and then they're going to burn through tango away. They're saying well in the sense that they're they're creating lasting employment for their communities so if you go to The Jordan Tourism Board's website. They have this beautiful beautiful meaningful. Travel map that you can click on and you can see these different enterprises on the map and you can see what it's about and in some cases it will link to their website and some cases he says it'll take you to a facebook pages all in Arabic so that the last article article I wrote for world nomads.

You're best off either joining a group tour that includes that or hiring a travel planner or tour operator to help you Include some of those places because many of them are not on the normal itinerary Many of them.

How a 'Flipped Palate' Affects a Racing Horse

"Nick Zito sent out Kentucky. Derby runner-up is box in the Belmont stakes. After having won the Florida Derby icebox went off as the three to one favorite in the test of the champion. But he finished ninth after the race. Zito said that icebox had flipped his Palette which caused his dull finish. So what does that mean. Take the tip of your tongue and tickle the back of your mouth make sure due to keep that soft tissue back. They're soft don't stiff in your throat. Okay that soft tissue. You're feeling with your tongue. Is Your soft oft pallet with race. Horses that soft palate can flip up and sit. On top of the EPA Gladys the EPA gladys is the little flap of skin skin in the back of your throat. That makes sure you don't swallow food down your windpipe or breathe into your stomach instead of your lungs. So when the soft palate sits it's on that EPA gladys the airway is partially obstructed. And the Horse isn't getting all the fuel it needs now. Typically the cure for a flipped pallet. Hallett is a minor surgical procedure to lift the Palette. So it doesn't flip up. It sounds relatively simple and in theory the horse should return to form thereafter rafter. But in the case of icebox after that throat surgery he finished off the board in the Haskell travers and the Monmouth Cup in fact icebox never won another race and finished in the top three in one allowance race over the next year and a half his final start. Art was an eleventh in the two thousand Eleven Breeders Cup classic. So here's the question. Is there a little more to it when a horse flips. It's pallet. It seems that that some researchers at Cornell University have been investigating that very question and one of those investigators. Dr Norm Ducharme joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. It's alternate and one of those investigators. Dr Jonathan Chatham joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. Alternate Ed and one of those investigators. Dr Martin Bucer. Coney joins US here on the gate with some surprising results. Your colleagues and you have spent a great deal of time researching researching what causes the soft palate to be displaced. What have you found so we found that in the earlier about historically shortly? We used to think that I was always the pallets fault that something was wrong with the pallid itself and that's led to a lot of treatment targeting the pallet but we found that it's the position of the larynx voice box that stabilizes the upper airway horses that exercise. This is and this is Pacific to race horses or horses that do more than just trotting any horse. Galloping race of the our study was focus on them as horses and we found that one specific muscle and they could be others as well. Just one that there's more studies on fatigues a few seconds before the Horse Displaces Palate is upper airway become loose quote unquote. And then the polit spices. The Racehorse In the second career often can become a sport horse and being the same greed so but if you relate into other functions that complained and many of the sport anymore says on a horse that this thing is talent is the normal noise. He's so the displacement of palate causes an obstruction to the airflow but unless the horse needs maximum airflow flow capacity the obstruction does not interfere or is unlikely to interfere with the performance of the Horse. But the horse the second thing that a pal how displacement does in the vast majority of horses as it creates an abnormal up arrest story noise often referred to as snoring or gurgling really. It's the same structure that people that snore vibration of the palate and horses is that displays the Palette of vibration of Palate as well and have normal noise affects the perception of judge. This writer in in the sports world. Can you please explain what the common surgical procedure is. How does the Pallet get lifted up? It's the airflow during excellence. And that lifts the Palette and causing obstruction during excavation and that's opposed to most other obstruction in the worst is anyway which happens during installation so during acceleration wants to the boys boxes below the Palette. The Palette is like Cassandra or spinnaker in an airflow get caught and the airflow and and lifts it up and vibrates just like you and I. We were snoring. The that's probably the proper metaphor accepting happens while racing or galloping horses now if the issue is muscle fatigue in the soft palate is that indicative negative of General Muscle Fatigue in the Horse in other words is the horse just destined not to run that fast no there. It's and then muscle fatigue in the muscles that controlled the position of voice box. We don't know that the soft palate actually fatigues south excellent. Maybe a an innocent bystander in that area were too soft pilots natural strength and fatigue May may not be able to prevent displacement. When it's an in nonsense illogical position meaning it sticking stuck on the air flow in the middle of the airflow but to come back to the fatigue? So so we've and this paper here that we're referring discovering muscles. Fatigue is is the likely cause of displacement and most forces right forces that is but they sit in their first. I'll answer question to through faith. The first question is is the muscle the horse just fatigue and this is just one of many muscles that are fatigue and and the answer is it's no. This seems to be specific to the muscle that controls the upper airways not the entire worse. There's different type above muscle their arrest story muscle which are meant to function all the time. And there's muscle us When the horses are galloping the skeletal muscle and the training of horses is focused on training them to be able to compete athletically? Let it quickly really focusing on their cardiovascular fitness as well as their skeletal muscle fitness. But we're not sure that the upper for airway current training at that are optimized for the upper airways voices and they might not be optimized optimizing for this group of forces that are predisposed to it because they have the wrong muscle fiber

"Valley's. That's going to be more like enterprise focused more also more hardware focus but that's less. Let's relevant for for the database companies interesting so you mentioned this kind of competitive dynamic with the cloud providers. He told me a little bit more about how that plays out in like deals or or like how it plays out in terms of like tactics today. Would you feel as your relation to cloud providers say like easy to frenemy relationship and like you know how's the diplomacy look and so on the relationship with cloud providers is mixed. It's it's different. Depending on the cloud provider for instance google announced a partnership with data stacks and a half a dozen other open open source infrastructure companies at their conference in april and now i think they're looking to be eh more proactive in kind of addressing that tension and saying hey we want to work with you guys and you know create an opportunity for both both of us to succeed and and they're looking at some creative ways to do that so i hope that that's the wave of the future because i really at no. We've got a agree partnership with google at this point in really happy with the direction that's going so i've had some conversations with people about building the open source companies and one one point. I've heard raised is that it seems to be important to be the moral authority of a project so oh like if you are building open source company. It's kind of hard to do it if you are not the controller of the repository tori. Do you think that's dead strategically true or do you think it's possible for multiple companies to be built around a single open source project. No i'm not sure because i can't think of an example of well actually yeah i mean the biggest example is is lennox right and so oh you've got red hat. You've got canonical so i think that's definitely exert an example of multiple customer are multiple companies collaborating there and i think that people would have different opinions on whether each of these companies is pulling their weight so to speak in the project but that's the best example i can think of it definitely seems to be uncommon though how have you balanced engineering between the open source projects and the internal sauce so for the first six years or so it was really easy where everything just goes to apache and so but the more interesting balance. I think you know is more recently like what what does that look like now and it's kind of our v._p. Of product up until recently he moved into product marketing names robin schumacher now hit his rule of thumb was if you're if you're building something that's a usual usual and customary feature of the product like if you're building a database and <unk>.

"Businesswise yes really and you you say that despite the i mean because it sounds like you have such heterogeneity have customers imagine if you would have just gone like let's see what he was gone until like intel today and just kept everything kind of in the open you know not keep as much stuff under the hood a we'll make sure that like you you would be in a in a less strategically beneficial position. I think what what makes me sure is if you just look at the revenue numbers that that amazon web service posts i it's it's pretty much that simple because if you're saying we we have the the same product or substantially the same product because we've open source did and on the one hand data stacks is trying to convince people to pay for dentist exa service and on the other hand amazon is saying hey we have all of the advantages in our cloud and we're competing with you directly by offering cassandra's a service like that's that's a really tough proposition so and that's not a hypothetical michael <unk> situation we announced a couple of months ago that were creating a set of services call data stacks constellation in the first one of those. This is gonna be data stacks of patchy cassandra's service so like like i said that's that's not a hypothetical for us from a business point of view. I completely get like so advantageous. What i wonder in this is kind of like the bear case for the decisions that like mongo elastic and so on are making here is that there might be some downside from the point of view of the open source community but at the same time it's like i mean how important is that open source community relative to city the developers that actually work at you know at the open core based company. Do you feel like there's been a trade off there now. There's definitely a trade off. I'm not saying that this is a one-size-fits-all answer in everything everyone should do with data stacks. Does it is a trade off and i think i said the ten years ago there was kind of the sense that we understood how to monetize open source and bill debt now we don't understand that anymore and data stacks and confluence and elastic your we're all trying to figure out what the new answer looks like and there isn't a playbook where we're inventing new ones and so i'm not saying i've got all the answers. This is but i'm saying you know this is. This is the problem we're trying to solve and here's what i think is a is a reasonable for stab at a solution but to to talk about the trade off there around the open source community we definitely believe in the continued importance of that apache cassandra community and and so i said no we're we're moving more of our innovations into the data stack server product rather than contributing everything to apache cassandra. I yeah definitely don't mean to imply that we took our ball and went home and said good luck a pet so we continue to maintain the half a dozen of the most popular drivers for cassandra. We continue to be involved in meet ups. Were sponsoring apache con next month. I'll be giving a talk about how new data stacks is supporting..

How long did it take for people to start trusting cassandra to look enough to actually use it as a critical infrastructure. When when did it become actually like an abstraction that people were demanding. I think comcast was the first that was like the first big customer that wanted help right this is this is like twenty eleven so my memory's a little bit fuzzy here so cassandra was open sourced in two thousand eight it was contributed to the apache. She foundation either at the end of that year or the beginning of two thousand nine. I became a commissioner on that apache project in like march or so of two thousand nine and then i started data stacks in may of twenty ten and so we were already getting by the time i started data's decks wrote we already had people using cassandra in production and this was like cassandra version zero dot five zero dot six so it was definitely not at the <unk> were moving.

I don't think i could tell you who was actually the very first but dig was one of the first there was there was a company in austin called one spot that was also very early on those are the two names that jump out to me from that time period that charted my sequel so people and if i recall the the difficulty there was that the client had to handle the charting right like if you want to write you're not ruby on rails. I guess it would've been like basically your job application right like it was all about the lamp stack back then right alab stack okay so you're p._h._p.

"Startups now but certainly there's a category of startups where they've raised a few million dollars and you know they they have a very clear understanding standing of we need to get to our next milestone of success because the money will run out in twelve months and we need to be able to demonstrate that level of success to to raise the next round or to you know do whatever makes sense after that so start ups are kind of looking for in an ideal world josh coates mosey would have hired a distributed systems engineer out of google or out of amazon and said okay. I want you to build our storage engine and i'm. I'm confident that you can do it because you've done it before but those engineers would have cost probably three to five times the salary that i was looking for and so we're we're going to take a risk. We're going to hire jonathan ellis to do this and he kind of has no business whatsoever because he's he's never done this before so we're taking the big risk by doing this but we're going to roll the dice and we think he's smart. We think he can figure it out so startups to a large degree. I think are are willing to to make that trade off. If you can make a good case for why you think you can figure out their challenges with them. They're going to be open to letting people try new things that on paper they're not qualified for in a way that larger companies i think are more reluctant to do so that that ended up working out really well for me and it turned out that i really enjoyed it. I would agree with what you said. In the sense that the distributed systems theory is ridiculously difficult and can you think of leslie lamport paper called the part-time parliament where he introduces paxos that like that that paper makes my head spin spend that was originally rejected from a._c._m. I believe you could be right. I'm not i'm not sure about that detail well. That's that's the one where he talks about. The island right the whole thing is an allegory yes and he's got the yes and but then the cheese inspector twenty years later later or something maybe it was i think it was i think part of parliament's published in the seventies but then in the ninety s like got impatient with like all these memorials who couldn't couldn't understand how brilliant this idea was and not being sardonic there like it really was brilliant. That's right he wrote another paper called passes made simple in his like look smaller words this time around and that that's the paper that i recommend if if you're interested in that impacts us or in distributed systems systems it's one of my favorite papers and it's it's significantly easier to understand so i i think of myself not as a distributed systems theorist but as distributed the systems engineer like if you explain something to me i can go build it i think i think that was something that was pretty good. Yeah i mean i is so bad that that class and someday i want to reach out to the professor because he was such a brutal professor but it really helped you know he even said in the class he was like this class is going to be brutal but you're gonna thank me later on in your career and it's like absolutely true very thankful for the brutality but i digress. I actually did casado ever moved to raft. Did you guys update rafter. You stuck with zookeeper and that's paxos. It took us long enough to taxes that we didn't want to dubai graft on top of that. Oh so you didn't you didn't use zookeeper. No no we built our own paxos implementation. What was the reasoning there again we didn't we didn't want to introduce an extra. Dependency dependency and also zookeeper is very opinionated around. We're going it does what's called multi paxos where it alexa alexa leader in the net leaders responsible for doing a bunch of your transactions until it dies but when it dies than than you have that period of unavailability not again in so cassandra actually uses more basic version of paxos without that leader election so that as long as you have a core of replicas available global you'll be able to process your transaction without not waiting for a for an election okay..
