Steve Deace Explains Why So Many Conservatives Are Pedaling the Vaccine
"So many conservatives peddling the vaccine like people that i used to trust and listen to cassini names. You know who i'm talking about. These people say they all care about facts and yet it just is really bizarre to me. Is it wishful. Thinking is now looking at data. Are they afraid of being called names if it's a combination of factors one is there there. There is an element of people in our business whose monetization model derives largely from a platform. Like a face button. And so what you'll find if you go and look at their commentary on things that you don't get pinged on facebook for it. I mean they go. They go to the wall the mattress on those sites on the things that you would get pinged on facebook for like say election integrity or this conversation. They have nothing to say. I think that's part of it. I think also. There is an element within our movement. And i say this as someone that probably was counted himself amongst this group until a few years ago when i could no longer deny the ferocity of just the pagans zealotry that we're up against but there is still a an element of our movement that is concerned about what our base will do if they don't kind of rein them in That that will all be cons- you know. Certified nuts crazy banned everywhere that will be disinvited from polite society so somebody some some really smart people have got to kind of run. The overton window on the right. I think that's part of it I think it's also they think we're still doing conventional science here and that there are you know. There were some very prevalent people in our industry. That were promoting scott gottlieb last year and a legitimate spokesperson. Okay and i think it comes down to you. Know what we can still all work together and live together here. We have you know people that are object there. These people don't exist any longer. No one is objective any longer. You're you're in a culture that's in a cold civil war and i'm sorry it sucks. I'm not you know a father of three kids. I'm not really happy about what that means for the future. But i ha- i can't lie to myself about that any longer

Yeah and the evidence of that will many pieces of evidence for the structure of a rocky body with a global ocean over the top of a not a ice coating over the top of that at there. There is good evidence from different sources but in the case of enceladus it's really direct because of course the cassini spacecraft a very early on in the cassini mission detected these plumes of ice crystals spurting out of the cracks in the ice near until the south pole surreally really spectacular stuff. And i think it's still sense. Tingles down our spines. Just the fact that we've got these guys as of ice burg out of a body at the other end of the solar system quite remarkable did cassini actually fly through one of those god.

The mass spectrometer equipment aboard the spacecraft to to san police things directly not just to look at the spectrum of the light coming from the exhaust plumes but actually fly through collect bits of ice effectively. Yeah which is what. They did Of course you've got to be careful when you do that I think they they were only really getting to the the core of these ice plumes quite light in the mission. Because you don't want to risk something big flying spacecraft hitting it if there was a large chunk but no it's it was from cassini that we know so much about these ice plumes now i remember when they released the results were released of the perhaps the the i really careful analysis of what was in them and it was As you've mentioned a maintain a plus a molecular hydrogen sometimes called die.

Ocean Currents Predicted on Enceladus
"New study claims. That ocean currents churning in the subsurface sees of this attorney an ice moon enceladus. The findings reported in the journal. Nature geoscience a based on the shape of enceladus twenty kilometer. Thick shell new hypothesis challenges. Current thinking that the moon's global ocean is a modulus apart from some vertical mixing driven by the warmth of the moons core and syllabus is a tiny frozen snowball just hundred kilometers wide. That's just a seventh of the earth's moon. It's the smoothest body. In the solar system is smooth as keeble and sold us attracted the attention of scientists in two thousand fourteen when a fly by the cassini spacecraft discovered evidence of subsurface after water was seen spewing out of guys alike eruptions through fissures in the circle tiger stripes in the ice neither moon south pole a spectral analysis of the water by cassini indicated that it was salty together with jupiter's iceman moon. Europa enceladus is one of the few locations in the solar system other than earth with liquid water. And that makes it an obvious. Target of interest for astrobiologists searching for signs of life but the oceans on enceladus are almost entirely unlike those earth earth oceans are relatively shallow with an average depth of just three point six kilometers. They cover about three quarters of the planet surface and a warmer at the top thanks to the sun's rays and cooler depth near the floor and they have carrots that are affected not just by the spirit of the earth but also by wind on the other hand and syllabus a piece to have a global spanning and completely subsurface ocean. It's at least thirty. Kilometers deep is cooler at the top. Of the i show and warmer at the bottom thanks to hate from the moon's core despite their differences the study's lead author analog from caltech says the oceans on enceladus do have currents based on the cassini measurements and observations on earth looking at the way ice and water interact drive ocean mixing.

"cassini" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Cassini New Horizons, Galileo. And most recently, the Juno probe and they've taken really amazing pictures of this so you can tell that the great red spot is basically a huge storm. Wow. Let's jump right into the eyes of storm, but first, let's take a quick break. Mm hmm. All right. So Jupiter is just basically a giant ball of hydrogen in all kinds of state. Solid liquid gas clouds and the eye of Jupiter you're saying is just basically like a storm. Inside of that giant whether ball Yeah, exactly. It's basically a huge hurricane and you know, on Earth, you could have been hurricanes that are hundreds of miles wide as a Pretty amazing event is pretty rare. And you can get wind speeds up to you know, 101 150, sometimes in super rare events up to like 200 miles an hour. Well, the Great red spot has winds that go up to 400 MPH. And it's been going on for, you know, we don't know exactly how long but much more than 100 years. Well, wait. You mean it hasn't always been there like there was a time when you could look at Jupiter and you wouldn't see a red spot? Well, this actually fascinating because we don't really have reliable information. Earliest solid observation of the great red spot on Jupiter comes from like the 18 thirties. Before that, there's some folks Calais on those guys who wrote about Jupiter and said, Oh, I see a spot on Jupiter. But they weren't like really very detailed observations. They didn't like, tell us exactly what they saw and measured it and stuff. And there's some hints in those writings that suggest they might have seen a different spot like on the northern side of Jupiter. So it might be that Jupiter's red spot is like a couple 100 years old or it could be that it's been there for thousands of years. We just don't have, like a lot of data, right? Is it a birthmark? Or is it Something that happened in purity. You know anything like it could be that we go back to talk to Galileo or folks like that. And they don't even have this question because they've never seen the great red spot on Jupiter, and they're like what he's talking about. Or it could be that this has been around for thousands of years, and you know it's a big question in their minds as well. So it's It's sort of cool that we don't know what this is like a transient thing that exists only in these few decades and hundreds of years that we're looking at Jupiter over for the prominent feature. That's a cool thing about thinking about that sort of time scales of the solar system, you know, in a million years Well, Saturn still have rings. Will Jupiter be identifiable? You know this kind of thing, but that's like their signature moves. You know, that's like their tender logo. You know exactly. Well, if you're like a teenager who had a lot of acne that might have been your signature, But then you kind of want to grow out of it. And You don't want to be called, like Hey, remember you. I remember you. You were that kid with all that acne, right? You wanna leave it behind? So maybe Jupiter feels the same way. Mm. Well, I think it's it's interesting to me that.
NASA's Dragonfly Will Fly Around Titan Looking for Origins, Signs of Life
"To study this mysterious ocean world. Nasa has selected dragonfly as part of the agency's new frontiers program. This is innovation now bringing you. Stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shape the future. Next destination in the solar system is the richly organic world of titan with a nitrogen based atmosphere similar to earth. This mysterious moon of saturn also boasts rainshowers of liquid methane organic sand-dunes deep impact craters. An icy subsurface oceans exploration by a single vehicle difficult titan is unlike any other place in the solar system but dragonfly is like no other mission and it is dragonflies design that sets it apart. Eight rotors helped the vehicle fly like a drone while allowing it to land at multiple destinations on the icy moon using years of cassini data. The dragonfly team has selected a safe initial landing site in short flights from there. The rotorcraft will fly to dozens of promising locations on titan collecting samples and examining the diverse environment while searching for the building blocks of life on another
Estonia's first female PM sworn in as new government takes power
"Let's then continue to estonia. That has become the only country in the world with women serving both fest prime minister and president. The country's new government was sworn in earlier today. Officially making connel's the country's first female prime minister the previous government had to resign due to a corruption scandal. God relief cassini policy fellow at the european council on foreign relations wasn't to surprise that estonia goes new female leader. Let's hear what she had to say. Stone years to wherever always has been gender equality. Women have always worked as hard as men things with worried. People have always been such things but the united states men and women rob divide. I mean when i grow up increase of soviet was the big thing and dealing with that men and women were same. So i didn't see. That's a such a big breakthrough but of course i mean normally it is because it hasn't had that sort of thing earlier but i think it happened naturally because many of resumed women on the top of reform party. They are close associates of of kaya colossus. So it wasn't like set thick just because they were. We mean the patriots. Your pirates places. Politics code released mr union herself there denny on what does it tell us about a country if it has a female leader. I take what Qadri leak said there in that clip to heart where she talked about the fact that it's for people in estonia. They met understand a little something about equality or might look at their society where we there is a bit more equality but i think the symbol of having the leader being a woman is very important for any country and for the rest of the world to see. It does mark a step forward. I think calvi say looking at good press from different countries around the world from from new zealand. And beyond what's happened in the united states last week with comma harris. It's an important step. And i think it's it's good especially in this time where i worry about a little bit of backsliding on on equality and things really good Newspaper reports in the global mail in canada over the weekend illustrating What sort of The not the political sphere. But what the business sphere has looked like and and what has changed throughout the pandemic. and the there's really been some backsliding on equality in boardrooms and the c. suite level for businesses across the country. Where it's even more male dominated. So i think in the political sphere is quite important as well to see this and i think it is a step forward. It's it's it's real simple to not only the eu partners but people around the world that especially Miskelly she's a young woman as well so i think that is important for For the country and for the projects that they'll want to work on in the u. It's knowing that estonian. I was to female leader still does change the way you see the country. Can i just say great pronunciation. I take outs from the proximity between estonia and finland. You're probably the only person on the show getting that right The language is very similar. Quick question for you. Marcus to turn on you they are. We can't quite understand each other. Words have different meanings because those two languages separated thousands of years ago. But you can get a clue what i'm reading estonian. Newspapers don't always need many translate sometimes make sense in phoenix too. I mean i mean talking about estonia. I think it's just interesting. Look it's tiny nation of about one point three million people of course paul of the soviet union in the post. I think it will. It will make people turn their heads a little bit and wanted to know About a year. And it's you know it's been a country that perhaps people didn't not about until fairly recently but it's been doing a very interesting things it's oversee really tried to give it up to be open to Entrepreneurship of recent kind of quoting itself. the digital nation and and pioneering. This this thing could e residency which is basically allowing people easy access online. Things like banking and payment processing and taxation. So it's been very forward looking in that regard also in terms of Mobility in public transport. And things like that. So i think this will cement ready the fact that you do now have both the prime minister president who women just really We'll be good for for the. Brian will be good for. So powell will go online but those things i mentioned as well thinking. This is a progressive interesting european nation a. And maybe make people onto no more done not agree with us to this can be a boost. I soft power. You work with our business program the entrepreneurs and it mentioned residency for example. How estonia's trying to attract new talent do think this this indeed. The that's people read news at lies about estonian having to female leaders and they kind of want to know more about that country one hundred percent i think people will be watching this closely and thinking about what it means for their next move or opportunity perhaps a thinking of talon perhaps as a as a new berlin of course you create a welcoming environments and wait to see if people will arrive. I think back actually to a good conversation. I had with the founder of a company called your baticle which is based out of estonia and we had this exact conversation about how sort of a small nation like that can make itself attractive on the world stage for people to come. Obviously you pointed out the e passport there and the potential to to have people on there is it would be very attractive for someone working remotely of course for for perhaps a bigger multinational company based somewhere else For its quality of life. Great capital Close to a lot of other places and it's looking like a very vibrant startup scene. So i think you know you show people that there is a welcoming environment in a social sense. And it can do wonders marcus. I really think until a really help. The country selling itself abroad
"cassini" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"The president is in charge of the military. It's pretty amazing that we come to come to a system where nobody says boo if the president starts a war zone without a direct correlation but if he decides to end the war and bring troops which he has constitutional authority to do as a commander in chief they yell and scream so the but part of it was just terrible on on foreign policy. He also has an opportunity. Because we're going to have to say this and that is bringing together coalition's and On principle and there are the awesome principal democrats and simple non interventions republicans and libertarians And there's no reason why that coalition can't be built when the When the failure of the system the economic system the failure of the foreign policy and When i think about the effort or healthy gabbert has made a progressive democrat but she willing to work and talk with her about a different foreign policy. I have for years work with dennis cassini on this and even though we went to agree with all the economic things i think war such an important thing it never i seconded think i was selling out by By working with people like you don't have to sell out your own if you build coalitions with people who have belief themselves in the believes overlapped. That's what i think should be done. That's why i think Libertarianism and the cause of liberty. Here's something that can be built on once. It's realize everybody birth instarem liberty because you get to use it any way you want as long as you don't hurt people and i think the coalition can build. I think we're up against the wall. They'll be very very powerful the next year they're going to get the bugs bath and Antiwar people always seem to justify the spending You know of of the military money and that's the with a lot of the democrats who speak a good game but they always still vote for the for the budget so the deep state is very powerful. They have the controlling influence on monetary system controlling the deficit by dancing but the deep state is also very influential in the foreign policy and agitating for types of power that lead toward protectionism antagonism and threat. You know around the world and i. I think that that's the may get a little bit. What we really say here in the next year is because of the Turmoil within our judicial system in our political system that Somebody might come along and sneak up and start a major conflict. I don't think that you know it's going to be something like the start of world war one or world war two but it could he actually even the worst because there's so much modern technology that can happen and it's also not as and that's the reason i think this whole this whole as you piece in a very big win but also wanna give us an opening to get other people to Work with us. The military industrial complex very very powerful and they're controlled by republicans and democrats. And that's why i think Buffoonish four anybody now to make a prediction. Well we're over this the the trump did reasonably good job at ties. We weren't sure it's actuaries going from but Like chris pointed out you know that bodybags law laugh and it was the congress. Sometimes it was agitating for war So is it has to do with the people when people get sick and tired of the wars in..

How To Believe in Yourself
"Every monday i begin by asking. Have you done your homework. I'll keep it really short today because you probably heard it a thousand times. Do you like what's going on in your life right now or not. So yes or no. I guess you could have a. Maybe i prefer you have yes or no. If you like it you wanna make sure you you you keep it in your life right to make plans to keep it. There are a lot of folks caught a frankly off guard this past year and what they loved went away others refine are the things in your life right now. You'd rather not have. Well just make a decision today. They have to go by by. That's all when you take a few minutes to do that. To to look in every single area your family and your work and and where you live and all the stuff and just society if you like it or not what you're gonna do about it. Life changes go. Get my perfectly planner if you haven't already it's at motivation. Move dot com in the resource section. It takes just talked about the homework right and it kind of put it into a counter so we can control your time first and then have the ability for you to really focus on. What's important in your life or get it today. it's really gonna help you. So how'd you believe in yourself this time of year. It's one of these things that you hear a lot about. Cassini seal the santa claus movies right. Believe your belief. I should have confidence. Could you use a little bit more. I don't know anybody who couldn't use more. It's all relative depends on on the scale. You live on what you've done in your life as kids up to a certain age at certain age they kind of get be like many adults but at a certain age they just they always believe right. They don't know any otherwise it just it is what it is as adults you see the world through an entirely different set of eyes and depending what you've done in your life you could be completely screwed up saying right. Peeling confidence requires a little bit more focused. When you get a little bit older. I remember back years ago when i was teaching martial arts and teaching little kids i was gosh us thirty years old when i was doing that i guess and they had no confidence and frankly they're the ones who are more scared with the adults and the adults would step up the kids like let's break a board and it's a cool. We break the board. They're fine but those adults dead step up to this little quarter inch or half inch pine board and they're scared to death so we get into break the board because we understood if you broke the board that bill a little bit of confidence right and it's a yale it's another way let's see two in a row and they try to get like four and then the hurt a little bit so they wouldn't want to do that but that's what i always kind of began but really it's a mindset when you think about this what is it this this thing called belief in yourself. This thing called self confidence yourself. It's it's a mindset that you have learned over time via experience like breaking aboard but you know where this all begins. It all begins when you take care of yourself. I if you can't take care of your body your mind your own spirit if you can't give yourself a little self care if you can't be very proud of what you're doing for yourself not saying you are. You're not. I'm just saying if if you can't do that do you think maybe you might have a little less self confidence and belief in yourself at a very core level you know the surface see. I'm good. i'm good. I'm good but you know down deep inside that you're not doing what you need to be doing. Psych practice gratitude for real right so number one in building belief in yourself and having self confidence take time to eat right. Exercise to to read and meditate. Whatever it is to you every single day. See you'll feel stronger from the inside out when you do that. And you know it's true as a real feeling it's nothing you're like yeah. I'm good i'm good. No you really are good. I work with a lot of people. I gotta tell you. It doesn't take very long to challenge challenge where they are and basically figure out that the shortchanging themselves don't do that so once you take control of your life and you feel good about yourself man. I'm rockin every single day. I got a thing going on rock. And i feel good. I'm awesome now some expand. Your horizons a little bit because as long as you stay inside your own little self will. You're kind of awesome for yourself. But the how do you fit in the rest of the world.
Meaningful Sport With Dr Emily Ryall
"Sport in today's episode. We will explore the questions concerning the role of technology and sport. Technologies are not just neutral things or equipment but they can have a significant influence on the values. We ascribe sport and even whether and how we find sport meaningful does technology make sport more inclusive more safe and more fair or can there be some adverse effects as well artists. Some good uses bud uses of technology and very delighted to have dr. emily royal helping us tackle these questions. Today this is the second episode with emily. And if you listen to the first episode already you will know that we have somewhat accidentally ended up discussing some of these issues already. Such as runners obsession with their. Gps will chase and counting steps and and that kind of things. So i'm i'm very excited to learn more about this topic and and hope you ought to to introduce august. Emily's reader in applied philosophy at the university of cross the and she has written extensively philosophical and ethical issues in sport. Welcome to the podcast again. Emily i'm really delighted to have you discussing this topic with me today. Thank you i think. Last time it was quite interesting the discussions that we are delving delving on in terms of technology and how it's so common and we have various types of technologies in sport. Helping us helping us do that. And as critical scholars point thou- technologies not just kind of neutral equipment the neutral aids but can also change our relationship with sport. Perhaps we can start exploring that the little bit and you can share us a bit about your own thinking and and what kind of work you have done in this area. Thanks i mean. I'm fascinated by technology and sport. I think sport is inherently a technological. And i always tend to steal some of my classes by asking students to think of a spore that doesn't require any technology and they usually get stumped had one. I had one suggestion wants of arm. Wrestling doesn't involve any technology. But i suppose if you think about the tabo that's required to all so then that could be considered a full technology so it's really hard to thing. Cassini that doesn't use technology even is most kind of basic so even even cut a running you. You'd think about the technology of footwear. I think oto certainly thinking about sports rather than exercise so you can you could in theory run a in bare feet in naked But the only way that you could judges to you know you time will distance would be using a a a measuring device or a stop watch so sport as a competitive exercise requires some forward technology. And i and. I think that's going to start with a question about well. What you mean by technology because i said earlier i said what you think of the table that used an arm wrestling. That's to form of technology Technology self exposes quite difficult to define. So you can. You can think of technologies komo things artifacts That help you or neighbor you to do something So that things the have specifically designed to solve a particular problems and normally let me think about technology we think about core advanced technology but actually technology can be very basic so it can be using a stick to push abboud around So technology count encompass a whole of wide range of of different types of things I think is also. I quite like thinking of technology. As was kind of attitude that we have towards the world and As a as a philosopher martin heidecker and he talked about the technological attitude and that's to me it's kind of an inherently human wave thinking about the road. It's a way of looking around us and looking at things in the world. and how can we. How can we use them for a benefit. So i think as humans were inherently technological creatures because of the way that we we view our the way that we look at our world the way that we divide up into different elements that can be used for our purposes. So i quite like the way of thinking about technology is an attitude as well as some artifacts or stuff that we can touch and hold. You mentioned a work

NASA's Dragonfly Will Fly Around Titan Looking for Origins, Signs of Life
"To study this mysterious ocean world. Nasa has selected dragonfly as part of the agency's new frontiers program. This is innovation now bringing you. Stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shape the future. Next destination in the solar system is the richly organic world of titan with a nitrogen based atmosphere similar to earth. This mysterious moon of saturn also boasts rainshowers of liquid methane organic sand-dunes deep impact craters. An icy subsurface oceans exploration by a single vehicle difficult titan is unlike any other place in the solar system but dragonfly is like no other mission and it is dragonflies design that sets it apart. Eight rotors helped the vehicle fly like a drone while allowing it to land at multiple destinations on the icy moon using years of cassini data. The dragonfly team has selected a safe initial landing site in short flights from there. The rotorcraft will fly to dozens of promising locations on titan collecting samples and examining the diverse environment while searching for the building blocks of life on another world

"Love. Get your reaction. 51283605 90. I don't know how else you would interpret that 609 a time for the Rush Update Got some hot news from NASA folk. Saturn's rings are disappearing faster than anybody thought. And it's very, very bad news. Saturn's rings disappearing is being caused by excessive global heat from Earth auto industry, SUV's and stuff and factory farming, along with President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate accords. Actually, I made that up, but it sounds just like the drivel. We always were told whenever science announces a new crisis, right? The real reason Saturn's rings are disappearing is that they're made mostly of ice. Gravity is pulling the rings down to the surface of Saturn, and they're falling to the surface as ring water. Scientists who are brilliant and predictions used to think that the rings had 300 million years to live. But after a Cassini spacecraft Saturn fly by the science has been revised. Now the rings on Ly have 100 million years to live. I truly hope they and we make the best of that time because 100 million years. I mean, it'll be up before we know it. The sea levels They're goingto have risen so high that we're all going to probably have drowned by them unless we're dead first. 100 million years. Talking about.
SPACE WEEK: Every Moon, Ranked
"Too small notes before we hit you with some hot moon takes one. Obviously, we're not talking about all one hundred and fifty moons. We picked handful from the top ten, and then we'll do a lightning round on some others. All of these bodies meet the technical definition of Moon meaning they orbit an asteroid or a planet, not the Sun. Second Note. Jennifer's list also includes a few of what NASA calls provisional moons. These are bodies that are kind of, let's say unofficial maybe haven't been studied that well or confirmed yet. Yeah. So. I want to add that the scientists that I spoke to. They said that they're probably way more moons out there that we haven't even discovered yet. Well. So cool. Okay. All right. So number ten on your list diddy moon yet say, yes is did he moon? So, did he moon it's not circling a planet. It is actually circling an asteroid it. It is very tiny. It's about five hundred, twenty, four feet in diameter and it's orbiting. The asteroid diddy. Moss in it's it's kind of part of a very cool future NASA mission, right? Yes. So did he moon is part of a really important the item mission and the item mission is like this cosmic dress rehearsal basically, NASA wants to send a spacecraft to slam into diddy moon and knock it off course. Now I know what you're thinking. It sounds pretty familiar and yes, it is essentially the plot of Armageddon. Show me. But it's a really really important mission in it's going to help us test one of the ways that we think we might be able to potentially deflect a hazardous object that might be pearling towards earth. So cool. Okay. Number six called by one expert you talk to the most underrated moon in the solar system orbiting Jupiter Ganymede Ganymede. Ganymede is such a fascinating world Ganymede is the largest moon in our solar system. It's actually larger than Mercury Ganymede is also the only moon that we've known to have a magnetosphere. Cool. Earth has a magnetosphere and it's essentially this covering this kind of magnetic shell that we have of charged particles and what it does. It actually protects us from harmful radiation. So there's tons of radiation that's generated by the sun and from interstellar space, and that magnetosphere protects us it's potentially allowed life to form. Can I tell you that I am horrified to report I thought Ganymede was a made up moon Scifi show the expanse. Oh. Yes on that. Farm on Ganymede and I'm like it was a fun made up plays I love that shout the expanse it's a great show. Yeah no can't meet is just so fascinating. So number four on your list orbiting Neptune. Triton. Yes. Triton is an absolute misfit. First of all I will say it looks just like a cantaloupe if you look at the picture. How was ranked keep going I, mean, that is, of course, the important feature. But really, what's cool about Triton is that it's essentially this kind of Pluto sized object that we believe has been captured by Neptune and now orbits the planet and temperatures on Triton and we we know this thanks to the voyager two spacecraft but temperatures on Triton have dipped as low as minus three hundred ninety one degrees Fahrenheit. Super Cold Nope nope. nope. nope things. But it's partially because it's got like this ice covered surface right and that reflects a ton of the light that it receives that it's by. Yeah absolutely. That's that's another really weird thing about Tritan on it has what's called an incredibly high Albedo. So that's basically a measurement of how much late a body reflects. and. Triton's is actually really high. It reflects about seventy percent of the sunlight. It receives I'm like in Triton I'm going to be honest with you Ganymede. But I'm like Triton right now array. Okay. Time for the top three Jennifer. Are you prepared I? Think so bronze-medal orbiting Saturn Moon. That contains the big four ingredients for life hydrogen carbon nitrogen and oxygen enceladus. Yeah. So enceladus is absolutely fascinating moon. So the Cassini mission when it arrived to observe Saturn's moons, it noticed that there were jets spewing out of ENCELADUS, right? So they actually took a detour and had Cassini swing through those jets to collect samples of that liquid into turned out to be liquid water right? I remember when that happened that was wild. That was like a big deal. Yes. Absolutely, and so it really spurred a lot of interest in enceladus. Of course, we love Europa. But enceladus is really this kind of new and exciting moon and you know as you mentioned, it has the big four ingredients for life. That's really just an incredible sign that this might be one of the places where we find life. Okay. Number two on the list orbiting Jupiter lot of Okano's and some lightning. I oh. Yes. So I will admit that I have some volcanic. I really love of volcanoes. Thank you for disclosing that conflict of interest Jennifer I have to be I have to be honest. I'm anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love volcanoes. So naturally, I O, which is the most volcanically active body in our solar system would have to take second there are over four hundred volcanoes on the surface of Iowa and they spew jets of. Lava hundreds of miles and two space. It's really incredible. Okay. So this is the wildest thing about Iot to me is that I owe can generate like true current. Yes. So of all of the Galilee and moons of Jupiter, Iowa's actually the closest to Jupiter and so sweeps through its magnetic field and that causes it to create this electric current it can generate. As much as three million amperes, and actually this jolt of electricity is then shot back to Jupiter and it creates lightning in the planet's. Fear I mean, that's cooler than the volcanoes. Some some people would say that. Yes. Okay. Your number one moon Jennifer orbiting. Saturn. A Moon I could walk on with potentially nothing more than an oxygen. Mask Titan. So Titan. Is. The only other place that we've observed so far that has a thick substantial atmosphere. So our atmosphere of course is. Critical for life here on earth and tighten, it has a similar has a sort of similar atmospheric also mostly composed of nitrogen but the second most common gas in the atmosphere is actually methane. So right. So instead of like US having oxygen the next most abundant compound in that moons atmosphere in Titan's atmosphere is methane. Yeah. Absolutely, and you think about Earth, we have a water on earth all. Three phases of water on earth. So there's liquid and gas and ice but on Titan you have liquid methane on the surface, which is really really incredible. It's the only other body in the solar system that we've observed to have liquid on its surface, and these are rivers and lakes and seas of methane and ethane part of the reason why it's got this like, orange Gooby Hayes, around the moon. Yes. So Essay in the methane on those hydrocarbons, that kind of creates it's it's really this I feel like it's really beautiful. It's this kind of soft orangish glow. So it looks a little bit fuzzy whereas other moons that don't have an atmosphere they. They look very sharp but this is very, it's a very muted known. It's. Yeah. Beautiful I think. Yeah. So. Before we go Jennifer we had to leave out a of sweet moons. So we're GONNA do lightning round. I'm going to mention a moon from your list and you give us one moon. Moon Pinions, but moon fax perfect. That sounds great. Okay. Number Forty, one Jupiter's moon ammonia. Yes. So a Mafia is actually the object in our solar system and we aren't one hundred percent. Sure. Why beautiful reds my favorite coloreds promoted to thirty one. Okay Number Twenty Jupiter's Moon Callisto. So Callisto is thought to have the. Surface in the entire solar system. Pretty Sweet. Okay. Number eighteen and nineteen combined also Saturn Moons Atlas and Pan. Atlas and Pan Look like giant Ravioli with aerial around their equator. It's so much fun. Okay. Number Thirteen one of the two moons around Mars Phobos some phobos is a giant rubble pile on track to either fling itself into Mars or split apart in orbit on some missions. Actually proposed a pit stop on the tiny moon on our way to the Red Planet love it. Okay. Number Eleven, Maranda orbiting Uranus. So Miranda is home to Verona Rupe. It's the tallest cliff in the solar system. If you fell off its edge, you would have time to read the newspaper before you hit the ground. Okay.

Musicians: Kassia of Constantinople
"Today's musician was one of the only known women to have composed music during the medieval period she was one of the first medieval composers whose work survives to present day and can be understood and performed by modern musicians. A brilliant composer poet and him Niagara for her work is still performed regularly in the Orthodox Church, which includes twenty three of her hymns in its liturgy. Please welcome casio of Constantinople. Casio was born around the year eighty, five and Constantinople to a wealthy family of some influence. We know little about her early life. What we do know is that she was considered an exceptionally beautiful and brilliant young woman? Casio was first recorded by Byzantine historians as taking part in what was known as the bride show. This was an event at which Byzantine emperors a royalty would choose a wife from amongst the most eligible women in the empire giving the winning participant Golden Apple as a token of victory. The bride show that Casio attended thrown for the young soon to be emperor theophilus who was immediately captivated by Casio when Theophilus approached Cassiopeia, he stated that through a woman came forth the baser things to which casio quickly replied and through a woman came forth the better things. The office was so taken aback by Cassius biting rebuke that he rejected her in favor of another woman the Adora after losing her chance to become empress of Byzantium Cassius founded an Abbey Eight, forty three right outside of Constantinople and served as its first abbess. Many historians have suggested the Cassius move into monastic life was a response to her rejection from the office. But some modern scholars have revisited that assumption. And now believe that it was likely a reflection of the intense religious fervor of the day combined with Cassius desire to have access to the books and centers of learning that were part and parcel of Byzantine religious. Life. Over the subsequent two decades living at the monastery Cassius spent significant writing spiritual poetry and him no music to accompany her poems. Though it's unclear where she learned musical composition, she wrote nearly two hundred and fifty hymns over her lifetime. Fifty of those, him still survive twenty three of which continue to be included even today in the liturgy of the Orthodox Church? Casio also wrote nearly eight hundred epigrams, many of which are examples of nomex verse. Cassius, most famous him WHO's the him? CASSIA is traditionally chanted on holy Wednesday in Orthodox churches around the world. It's considered one of the hardest Byzantine chance to perform because it requires an incredibly wide vocal range. Legend has it that the Emperor Theophilus years later wishing to see Casio one more time went to the monastery but was met by her empty cell supposedly, she was actually hiding in her closet when he saw the him of Cassie on her table halfway finished the office added one line of his own. The story goes that Casio chose to keep it in his honor and it remains in the him today. While Theophilus may have maintained affection for Cassiopeia that didn't stop him from persecuting her. The office was a fierce iconoclast meaning that he completely rejected the use or veneration religious icons iconography in the Byzantine. Casio on the other hand was a defender of the use of icons for her perceived insolence. Casio was whipped with a lash. Still. She refused to change her mind saying I hate silence when it is time to speak. Towards the end of her life, Casio. Left the Abbey and traveled to Italy for a brief period before eventually settling on the island of Casio's in. Greece. She died there sometime between eight, sixty, seven, and eight ninety. Following her death Casio was canonized by the Orthodox. Church. As Saint Cassini also known as Cassini the him NOG

Bronze-medal orbiting Saturn Moon that contains the big four ingredients for life. Hydrogen Carbon Nitrogen and oxygen enceladus. Yes so enceladus is an absolutely fascinating moon so the Cassini mission when it arrived to observe Saturn's moons it noticed that there were spewing out of enceladus so they actually took a detour and had Cassini swing through those jets to collect samples of that Liquid into turned out to be liquid water right.

How Does Saturn Work?
"The Planet Saturn takes its name from a Roman God of agriculture and of all the planets revolve around our sun. It's cultivated if you will the greatest ring system by far shining rings filled with ice dust and rock orbit its equator. The whitest one called the phoebe ring has an outer edge. That's millions of miles away from Saturn itself. For comparison the average distance between Earth and our moon is a paltry two hundred thirty nine thousand miles or three hundred eighty four thousand kilometers once again. Astronomy PUTS THE HUMAN EGO IN CHECK. Saturn's rings get all the attention but we shouldn't ignore its other attributes the sixth planet in our solar system. It's also the biggest after Jupiter. Those two are in a league of their own. If you mushed every planet from Mercury to Neptune together Saturn and Jupiter would account for over ninety percent of the cumulative mass of that planetary mass but despite its immense size Saturn is the least dense planet in the sun's orbit and the spherical to. We'll need to look at. Its physical makeup to understand why research published in two thousand nineteen showed that a day on Saturday and lasts just ten hours thirty three minutes and thirty eight seconds. It's spin rate helps explain one of the ring. World's stranger qualities is he. Saturn is ten percent wider than it is tall. A difference of over seven thousand miles or nearly twelve thousand kilometers. Astronomers call that kind of disparity an equatorial bulge every planet in the solar system has one but Saturn's is the most extreme saturn rotates around its axis at a very high speed. Hence the brevity stays. And here's where density comes into play like. Jupiter Saturn is a gas giant such worlds predominantly consists of hydrogen and helium and whereas Earth is solid on. The outside gas. Giants are not they may however have hard intercourse now. Saturn is downright huge in terms of volume. Some seven hundred sixty four earth sized objects could fit inside of it and the planet is ninety five times as massive as our home world and yet relative to its size. Earth is eight times more dense. In fact water yes. Plain water is denser them Saturn although that doesn't mean the planet would float. It's not cohesive enough so thanks to its low. Low density zippy rotational. Speed Saturn's been deformed into a oblong world that looks kind of squished in profile Jupiter's southern hemisphere famously has an ongoing storm called the great. Red Spot Saturn's answer to. This is the great white spots which are periodic tempests that arise every twenty thirty Earth Years I detected in eighteen seventy six. These weather events are colossal scale ness as Cassini spacecraft spent thirteen productive years hovering around Saturn on December fifth of two thousand ten. It witnessed the most recent iteration of the great white spot phenomenon. The storm was about eight hundred miles by sixteen hundred miles long when it first began. That's about thirteen hundred twenty five hundred kilometers but over the next six months. The spot expanded Longitudinal early until it had looped itself around the planet in a gigantic circle. Some researchers think the great white spots might be part of a cycle that sees the outer layer Saturn's atmosphere slowly lose heat allowing the warm air from lower levels to burst upward. Meanwhile Saturn's North Pole. There's a cloud pattern shaped like giant hexagon. This pleasantly symmetrical jet stream spins counterclockwise measures about twenty thousand miles or thirty two thousand kilometers across and includes a hurricane. That's been swirling right over the poll ever since it was discovered back in Nineteen eighty-eight. Of course it's not the hexagon earned Saturday. A place on. Chucky festers T. shirt you know from rugrats anyway. The gas giant is most famous for the spectacular ring system encircling it a planetary rings aren't rare per se Jupiter Uranus and Neptune. Have the well yet. In terms of sheer scale network around Saturn is totally unrivaled. Most of the primary rings come with letter names. The closest one to Saturn is called the D ring which has an inner radius of about forty two thousand miles or sixty seven thousand kilometers a lot closer than our moon. It's surrounded by these C B A F G and earrings in that order by the way. The rings aren't arranged Alphabetically. Because the naming system reflects the dates of their discovery Abmc recited before the rest when measured from its outside edge. The earring showcases an impressive. Three hundred thousand mile radius or four hundred and eighty thousand kilometers. Or at least that looks impressive until you get to know the big bad fearing that. We mentioned earlier. I spotted in two thousand nine. This one was named after one of Saturn's moons untold trillions of ice rock dust particles. Make up these rings. Some bits are the size of a sugar grain. Others could probably Dwarf Your House in any case. The ring material is stretched. Remarkably thin Saturn's rings may be as thick as two miles or kilometers wide. Found just thirty two feet or ten meters wide so proportionately. The gas giants iconic rings thinner than a typical sheet of writing paper as noted by Astronomer. Phil plait whereas Saturn itself is probably around four point five billion years old. The age of its rings isn't as clear. Some scientists think that they were formed ten million to a hundred million years ago when an icy comet or some ice covered moons came too close to the planet. The visitor or visitors would have met a grisly end. Getting ripped to pieces by Saturn's gravity as those fragments collided they grew smaller and multiplied giving rise to the skinny but brilliant system. We all know today on the other. Hand a twenty. Nineteen paper argued that the rings might have originated at an earlier stage in the history of our solar system. We'll have to see how the debate unfolds as new evidence arises. There's lots about this planet that we're still learning in October of two thousand. Nineteen the international astronomical. Union heralded the discovery of twenty newfound moons orbiting the gas giant with these bodies added to the mix. There are now eighty two verified. Saturn moons altogether no other planet in the solar system has that many natural satellites not even mighty Jupiter. You can find Saturn's moons in around and beyond the ring system before Cassini was retired in two thousand seventeen it revealed that some of them gather clumps of ice and dust. From the Rings Saturn's Moon Titan is especially well-named it's our solar system second-biggest moon overall and it's dotted with seas lakes and rivers of liquid methane and pain. There's only one other body within the Sun's orbit that has standing pools of liquid that we know about. And here's a hint. You're sitting on it right now. Tighten is also noteworthy for having an atmosphere and it's theorized that there could be ice volcanoes that spew water instead of lava like Earth Saturn gets auroras at its poles. They're invisible to the unaided human eye. But the Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope have captured footage of them using infrared and ultraviolet

"I became the poster child. Of what every really means and how important it is and no matter. How nerve wracking was. I mean I went to bed not knowing whether or not I really want and I never really felt like I had any real sense resolution. 'cause my election night party was. Kinda like well you want. But we're GONNA go into a recount and then after the recount. Well you wind but it was only by you know it wasn't until I was walking down until the ceremony when I got sworn in which I actually got sworn in in the place where I became a naturalized citizen so that was beautiful but I I had on in strategic. I had like these big long eye lashes. Have my full face on because I was not going to cry because I had been on emotional mass. I've been crying ever since I really one and I tried to contain myself but I couldn't I like when they gave me a standing ovation. Oh I started crying like a baby I just. It's just been such an emotional journey because things like this don't happen to people like me right in the fact that. I'm here in City Hall. Even if it's just by one vote it just really makes me feel like if I can do this. We all can right. And I'm a single mom right. I grew up in a life of poverty. And here I am representing my people and I was unapologetic about who I was here to serve. Because I was not going to be myself at the door so other people can feel comfortable so I was coming in here to do the work. And so that journey here I carry with me everywhere and I kept thinking about all the people who I met along the way at the nail salons at the laundry mats and I just kept thinking about who I was here to represent. And that's what I'm here to do them to do that. Work and I already. If you've been following me I got a little bit of hateful voicemail and then you hear about that video. I turned it around right now. Your your experience with MTV makes sense this very media savvy person that was really powerful video my therapy when I heard it I had to. I had to recycle that anger. So somebody sent you a very really messed up attacking you and basically your integrity your existence since a bully bullying and you know yeah and for us it was like I think about everybody else in. It's not just you know immigrant communities. It's like there's so many groups that have been bullied and marginalized here in this country. Lgbtq Jewish you know. There's just so many folks who have who have bred the brunt of the new administration and so from taking a stand was really important and it was really about uplifting those voices because when you're an abusive relationship you just take it and you don't say anything less how they keep doing it. So you're enabling that hate and I felt like I needed to do something about it so you put this guy a blast. Yeah and I love the way you did it. Swiftly concisely and using the tools that we have today you made a media but it on your instagram. And you just all you did. Was You took the voicemail and you cut it images of yourself of your mother of civil rights activists and it's it's really. It's really moving. Thank you moving. He you know he called me today. Oh my gosh. Please tell me what happened. I know right but he I called my I wasn't here when the first morning early in the morning when he called he spoke to my chief of staff and he spent thirty five minutes on the phone with him and he turned around and I spoke to him and I fell. I'm so glad that he reached out. It took him a lot of courage to do that and he apologized to me to my mother. He told me that this is my country and that he could be a high head sometimes but he's seventy years old he fought in Vietnam combat. he loves this country and I told him I do too. You know and we had a really good talk. And that's why. I'm glad that I did my video about calling people in yes. It wasn't wasn't about calling people. That's the problem that we have in social media right now. All we WANNA do is calm all falls out yes. I've been talking about this. I Love I'm friends with a lot. Chica ANNEX WARRIOR PEOPLE TO MAKE FUN of them but to make fun of them and like. Y'All call people it's like okay we understand. Bullying is a problem online. But when you start calling people out like you're also being abolished telling people in this. Offense is what it's about and let me tell you that this man called me a week ago Friday and I put this out on Wednesday. I think Tuesday or Wednesday and he got a lot of calls because he calls in a lot. It's like you like everyone to recognize my voice and they were calling me that I just need you to understand like. He wanted me to understand what he was coming from. And that is how you. That's how you confront. These issues is with compassion. And I think we're losing sight of that. That's why this world is so divided right now because it's US versus them and it doesn't have to be that way and that's really what I want to change and the fact that he called me today speaks volumes. That may calling him in was a part of that. I think a big factor in that there was moment in the video where there was all these these children of color holding signs. That says I am human. That's what I saw this all your life in that video where you came from my mom your mom and her journey here relatable to him he. Cassini told me that he his parents is that he was Irish descent. Will he understood? He understood and that to me was great too because he understood it. I was so moved by the fact that he called. I am I was shocked to. I was like yeah. No one's GonNa believe this. I didn't believe it right. This is weird But I feel like everything in my life has never been coincidence and I believe that everything even winning by one vote. No one will believe who would believe something like that would happen. I just think that right now. We're at a time that if we don't act with urgency and if we don't lead with love and if we don't really intentional about how we create space for people that we're going to find ourselves in some really bad situation because we never took a moment to pause because we're screaming and yelling when I hearing we have to stop because that's not gonna get us anywhere so that's my hope and bringing developers into the conversation who have displays people who are no longer can afford to live in the city like this is restored of justice time. There's about all of us changing the conversation but we all have to get on the same page for us to do this because it can be US versus them. It's not gonNA work. It's not hasn't worked. That'S WHY WE'RE HERE. Never has and this is going to get worse. And that's what I'm here to do. I'm hoping he don't have two years to prove myself right because every two years. I gotTA run again. But I'm an exponential learner. You know I wanted to run my campaign I wanted to learn. We ran an amazing campaign. I got a lot of great feedback about how we how we did this so I'm feeling really

But Hey you win some you lose so the the updates on our lives. Stephanie is currently only doing civic duty during jury duty somewhere in the five boroughs Stephanie was in Scotch Plains New Jersey having a great event there a few days ago Maybe we'll we'll get the update next week. Leo You're in the motherland right. I was in beautiful Israel. Why for my grandmother's one year as a memorial service? Yeah Had a chance to sit and study some Tomlin with my Gerke Hassett cousins. I dearly love and again you know. We're often kind of like you know funny about these matters here but every now and then I really do get the urge to be sincere when I sit with people who you would think we have absolutely nothing uncommon. But then you realize we are truly literally and metaphorically speaking family and when we get together that love that connection is completely puttable we have spent very a little time talking about the fact that you're related to Garros So how did these are first cousins of yourself. I Costa who went. Who Went Garrard in your family? My Grandmother's sisters Shula Married Girl Haas. Okay this is a particular sect of Hasidim. What is there? What's the What their vibe? Like what what makes Gerhardt's put it like this cafe after the memorial service writing grandmother. Someone was talking about a person who's become about Shuba who's found religion later in life and became a gir- haas acid and one of my cousins who is Haas it said really no one becomes Bolshevik becomes a hostage and I asked why not and my cousin said well. Because it's it's perfectly fine to be like a really religious Jew and not go all the way to where we are. Why would you ever do the house? We have no choice right. Mind way you ever come here. It's so interesting I don't have any Cassini blackadder's any Haredi in my family I have modern orthodox cousins in Israel whose parents my mother's first cousin hasn't her husband actually were leaders of the conservative movement in Israel but then there's not much of a conservative movement in Israel so if you grow up kind of conservative conservative acts like observant conservative but if you SORTA got a pick or are you going secular going modern Orthodox and they're you know they're orthodox but I don't know of anyone who's like got the hat and the beard. It's a great a crying. Shame you have Hasidic material written all over your basically and this is the thing that I I kind of realized this week. 'cause we were hanging we were talking and at some point. The conversation vacation got kind of really elevated. And then I thought you know moved to dial like three clicks to the right and we're talking about Cherry Garcia Right in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy right eating shrimps and the bus and the way to Monterrey. That's kind of the VIBE. Yeah really the essence of not just observing the strict strict interpretation of the law but really trying to find this motionless spiritual connect mystical court to it would love to. I WanNa hang with your gear custom in cousins or Greg. I had a slightly different experience but in its way no less mystical by the way while you're talking about Jerry Garcia on the bus. Were you on the conference call when I when we were all doing like a pre show Oh crap and Rebecca. My thirteen year old was in the car and she was saying Dad. Can you explain the the grateful dead to me which is a really deep question because you know I could say I mean. I think we'd been listening to uncle. John's John's Bander Casey Jones. Or something you've come on. Come on the playlist in the car and I could say well it's a it's a group from about nineteen sixty seven to nineteen. Ninety give is playing the debt side. But I could give you the Brownie right and you'll eat it thirty five minutes you'll understand everything about this man. I mean I. It's really hard to say because it's so much more than a band to six never made sense to me before I try them on. Meet cliche thing to say. One is a grateful dead. The second is tennis and attended attended. I'm like wait until you understand. 'em This is a great game. I just have to move my eleven right. I'm so into this now. I add my own mystical experience in Wia missing in Pennsylvania and a bunch of people came like they'd set up fifty chairs. Forty five of the chairs were were filled with super curious. Interesting people of all ages a young rabbi from Lebanon Pennsylvania brought his twenties and thirties. Group is like young singles of which there were five or six and they were super into it and they listen to the show and they wanted copies the book and it was magical. The Jewish Cultural Committee organizes their author series was three people. None of whom was is Jewish. Okay one of them was Nancy Russo. WHO's married to to Paul something? Jewish and Nancy is is Italian Catholic by upbringing. The main woman the director of cultural life for the Jewish nation is Amanda Hornberger. Whose husband is like something German Lutheran? She herself grew up. Congregational est she's on the vestry of her united the Church of Christ Congregational Church. I've always said that the congregation great out and there was a local librarian named John who grew up in Baltimore where he did sixteen years of Catholic school and then went off to college college. I mean literally none of these people even guys. Every time we meet a gentle on our show it turns out there a quarter Jewish. These people like zero Jew in them and yet they are keeping the Jewish heart beating y missing Pennsylvania. They were interested they were curious they're booking good authors. They're running great programs. The people they bring in Inter asking smart questions Jews by choice we had a convert. who showed up a Sherry came and said thank you for your your help on my journey? The podcast has been meaningful to me. gentile L. spouses of Jews. Why a missing? Pennsylvania was among the greatest afternoons of my life is how it ought to be how it ought to be. Whatever New York like fucking fucking A.? Y. A. Missing Pennsylvania it there. Are Jews starve reading. The News starts reading this and I want to see even today do an event at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. And you'll get fifty fifty three people and I go to why missing and get forty and in town. That's probably like twelve thousand people get numbers you get. People are truly engaged truly engaged and so grateful full end their listeners and the ones who aren't listeners could become listeners I it was it was magical. Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.

Visiting Virunga National Park in the DRC
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Neil from Ireland. WHO's come to talk to us not about Ireland but about Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo meal meal? Welcome to the show thanks. It's great to be here now. We're talking to an Irishman about an African country. What is your connection with Virunga National Park Mark with DRC? I came across Franca. Maybe like a lot of people scrolling through next lakes and came across to Verona documentary was Oscar nominated donated a couple years back Across and when I watch this and I saw the conservation work being done there. I kind of felt a nose and the theon says well ever since we've been kind of keeping tabs on the park keeping tabs on to charity in the work. They're doing kind of daydreaming about coming here someday. Someday and fortunately a couple of months ago we got to choose and spent eight days in the park. And if we I wanted to put it on a map we're in the DC. So were in the western half of the southern part of Africa and where we within the Democratic Republic of Congo Virago. National Park is Roy's on the eastern edge of the DRC. And if you were to put on a map you're pretty much in in debt. Exact heart of Africa. So there's a very large cece Ghouma which is about a million people and the park ruins north from there along the border with Rwanda and Uganda excellent. And why should someone go to for National Park. Okay so I just Kinda tree. Main reasons people generally go to vulgar. I I swear I is the picture postcard. It's near Dongo Volcano. So for those of you don't know it's one of the only active laugh lakes Exon art so it's very very unique thing. I think there's only seven in the whole globe so that's a really big attraction the second power to to this is melting guerrillas. So again there's only three places on earth you can see mountain. Gross National Park is one of those and then finally when I'd say as Virunga is one of the oldest and degrades national parks on earth and wounded world's gray conservation projects and you can visit it with almost no other tourists so it's really a chance to see a great African National Park pretty much share says and when you say there are only a couple of other places you I can see mountain gorillas. You happen to be a stone's throw from them when you're in a national park absolutely so not grits. Basically the only live in the mountains and those mountains straddle the Rwandan Ugandan and DRC barter so within an hour urine in basically it's the same guerrillas and they actually do pass back and forth across the border and thrown guys just worn out those treat locations but there's some differences in in terms of price ace and the size of the group. You'd be with so can talk a bit about this when we talk about grits Deidra okay but really that areas why. I wanted to make sure that people understood is where we're win. We're all the way over there to the east. That means we're really just across the border from Uganda. What kind of are you going to recommend for US earth too? So I know gingerly generally on your podcast for kind of a week. Itinerary and Veronica some flexibility when we're going as far as Africa absolutely and I guess a lot of guests if they go to Africa. They're likely to maybe tag. This onto a maybe a wider trip or wider safari. Sorry so Veronica is actually very flexible so anything between kind of two days to eight days. You're going to see quite a lot. And there's kind the four main sites within the park and depending on your interests and preferences you can mix and match them so if you really only want to see the volcano you can be in forty not eight hours if you want to do everything about eight days and what we did was we. We spent quite a lot of time. There we dare nineteen days so we did everything quite a bit of detail and we can talk data entry but you can abs- dookie slice and dice it to fit your time-scale excellent and where should we start anyone. Visiting Virunga is going to be coming through the lower city of Goma. Now Goma is kind of an interesting place For want of a better. That's word so it's it's a city of a million people would huge number of those being UN peacekeepers and NGOs. It's always been in the power of the word. That's a little bit chaotic. And I found when I was looking at open. Your your listeners. Might find interesting is if you go on Google alert. There's two the twin cities. Most people will come in from Rwanda your fly into Kigali which is only about two to three hour drive into the border crossing and there's a town Cassini and Rwanda which is more twin the goal Matt Iran Roy's teacher. There's no real clear bar between the except if you look look on Google alert you can. Even if there was no barter on the map you could absolutely tell the difference between Rwandan D. R. C. On one side of the dimap map. There's these beautiful houses. Lovely Straight Roads Gardens Greenery and on the other side during his chaos absent whose that notre chaos and to be clear. You're you're side absolutely but chaos in isis going. So is an unusual place. I think the feeding on got there. It was kind of POMPEII in waiting. So the first thing that would really strike you when you get into Goma is developing near Dongo frames your the entire view so you look out over the city and in the very near distance is an Uruguayan. Go at eight. Tenths give out a a lot of clouds of smoke pretty much all day round and that's not a fake sewing. Volcano is very much active and erupted in two thousand and two was the most recent and and Flow True City caused quite go to visit damage. You'll still see when you drive through to see see places where say there was a two story house house and now the entrance is on the first floor because the whole ground floor is now basically solidified lava. It's an unusual usual spot. It's not one that I suspect. Most visitors spend any great toy man so like false wego barter and we a mess our guide who took US pretty much true Goma without stopping so we drove through the city. It's perfectly safe during the day but you kind of I think the most interesting power to the city is just to see I think for anyone who's experience either hasn't been in. Africa are as experience maybe more to safari lodges and that client side. It is a good introduction to maybe some of the more real day to day experiences underground it would awake in your senses for better or worse. But it's very interesting place to pass through and you mentioned meeting your guide. How did you find a guide for this trip? Spoiled it being quite a complicated power to the world. This was probably one of the easiest trips. I've ever taken so to go to the National Park because of the security region the organize everything centrally. So your point of contact would always be the national park and they have a specific tourist department that looks after all logistics. Ice was wanted under things that concern me day. One was a land border that I have to cross in Africa and does not always a reassuring thing to be doing so actually when I was underground founded wonderful laws when you cross the border into the DRC. There's actually a very very modern building thing that was actually funded by Howard. Both I think is one of he wanted years. He does a lot of charitable work so he actually Biz modern. Warren Buffett. Aso's Sorry Actually Warren Both its broader or other. Okay yes so. I think he's actually a partner in the business and he's also equally successful at he's actually hugely involved in Goma and national packets of and as has done amazing work. And actually when you go around here you'll see lots of signs bearing these names where he's foundation has done. Great work to actually Barda. Crossing itself is fantastic. It's like a modern kind of airport tight building and wanted conditions. Wins all of this very fancy building being used was that for the National Park. Were actually given an office inside in the Border Patrol area. So when you go in you don't meet Garrett's you don't meet people checking your passport. You actually meet your tourist. God who will take her passport. Kgo Eight eight-point scenes and organize everything for you while you sit comfortably in their tourist office so for anyone who's nervous about crossing borders navigating like that this is absolutely nucle- The easiest thing in the world it's not something to be concerned
Emirates Airline Orders 50 A350 XWB at Dubai Airshow 2019
"Dubai show just happens I guess the big news out of it is Immerse orders. Yeah kind of crazy numbers. Well yes and no remember that when emerets announced they were canceling their eighth radio or significantly scaling back. The a three eighty order it was going to be swapped for three fifty three thirty Nieto's and now they sort of firmed that up. But it's only the three fifty's not party Nieto's interesting and Never wanted to mince words sir. Tim Clark basically came out and said Yeah Rolls Royce and get his act together and actually making so engines will look at three thirty Nieto's but right now they're you know not vision sufficiently reliable hardware and we need langfitt imply interest. Yes I know I think I shared in one of our the other day. There's been the three thirty are now being being a fat are now included in the Trent thousand or the trump series right not the one thousand but the trend series engine issues so that is actually becoming an issue for Some airlines that have the three thirty Nieto's in Clark Cassini knees not keen on flying planes. That can't be I mean at this point do do you think the Airbuses have had their own. Trent issues right But emrich seems to have dodged most of that Luckily I I think most of the transition so far have been on the seventy seven yes and has just recently that the three thirties have shown up in having problems with regarding the the three eighty S. Triple seven have been rock-solid I'll say recently at least your Amerson for the global community large so emerson has been very lucky slash reliable on that front and now now it's just a matter of what the hell did I do. NEX and they had the triple seven x order with the other half of the news In there still the largest civil seven x plus tomorrow tomorrow expecting customer Bud in part because of delays they are they now added seventy seven. So they're orderbook seven eight seven dash nine which I think is thirty. Yeah they're planning on taking. That's I think as a hedge a little bit against triple seven x delivery delays but also. It's hard to tell how much of emerets orderbook is someone. Someone sort of sitting down implanting like this where we want to next. This is how many people there will be there. This is how you probably these routes will be the need to do it. Versus God. Airbus some Boeing. Love US and love for us to sort of say we're GONNA be a flagship Awesome report them. So they're gonNA give us a great deal on X. Y. Z.. We should buy some of those. Yeah it was actually interesting. I'll try to put it linked to it in the show notes on an interesting story from flight global about that I mean they're kind of like throwing their weight around right. They're you're buying power weight but like how much of it is that they actually have the buying power in how much the perceived to have it. I guess what I wonder I mean. Yes they are the biggest radio operator I yes. They're currently the biggest triple seven operator since W. yes and they will be the biggest triple seven x operator assuming that happens but also like they're not not the biggest airline They do fly a lot of places they have a brand cachet that is significant. But like I don't know I'm vaguely
Mission To Saturn
"Don Do you remember Saturn's Moon Titan sure do y'all who could forget such an interesting interesting moon Titan is larger than the planet Mercury and has a thick atmosphere of nitrogen it has lakes and rivers of liquid methane NASA's Cassini spacecraft Nice graph showed that Titan has complex organic molecules like the ones that may have preceded life on earth is too cold for life as we know it on Titan but studying starting is organic chemistry could tell us life got started on earth are sure open somebody will send another spacecraft there then I have some good news in in two thousand nineteen NASA approved plans for a spacecraft mission to Titan called dragonfly great I hope they're sending a roving vehicle like the ones on Mars I actually they'll be sending a flying drone with propellers go well that's awesome how come they didn't do that for Moore's Titan is very different from ours for one one thing the atmosphere is much denser Mars surface air pressure is a puny one hundredth of Earth's but titans is almost one and a half times is higher than Earth's the denser air makes it easier for propeller generate lift another advantage for flying Titan is that it's gravity is only about third is strongest Marzieh's wait when will it get there I'm afraid I have some bad news. Saturn is so far away that dragonfly will take eight eight years to get there it will launch twenty twenty six but won't get there until twenty thirty four this Molin of science comes from Indiana University. There are thousands more moments
The two sides of Beirut
"Now by the end of his first year in Beirut Middle East correspondent Adam Harvey thought he knew his new home town then he stepped out of his comfort zone and into the part of Beirut controlled by the Iranian backed militia Hezbollah Beirut is a tiny city crowded around a couple of small hills waged between the mountains mountains in the Mediterranean. My family's life here is centered on a small part of this compact town bounded by my son's school the apartments of our friends and in a couple of pay as you go places like Yuppie Pack we patted down for prohibited goods like kid cats and Muesli buzz before you permitted into the souls tools and wooden pirate ship a walkin run the same streets here everyday and I think I know it and then in event like a surer reminds me that I'll always ESPN stranger he sure is a Shia Muslim commemoration Russian that marks the death in six eighty ad of Hussein the grandson of Islam's Prophet Muhammad. It's a huge day in Beirut. She had district and this year I went to Dhaka in Beirut's southern suburbs to attend the Hezbollah event. I hear begins just a couple of hundred meters beyond my stomping and ground but crossing the invisible boundary is like entering another country. If not another millennia there are multiple checkpoints and outer ring man by the Lebanese army and an in-network controlled by Hezbollah like everyone else today. I'm dressed in black but I'm obviously not Lebanese so I'm stopped to over and over again by lodge men wearing tight t shirts and thick beds and with handguns waged into their waistbands. Im surged in my press ideas checked and then and I'm waved through after the fourth or fifth search. My bag is X. Rayed am allowed onto a bus. It'll take me even further into here. It's a place I would never normally be able to go narrow. Straits are overlooked by apartment blocks of six or seven stories pockmarked with bullet holes from the fighting here in the seventies and eighties piece is Bella has its office here and it's presumably home to his Balazs leader Hassan Nasrallah in Israel system. Militia stole some of its thousands of missiles here as well as the equipment. It's really worried about specialists. Machinery used to make the rockets more accurate. It would be seriously dumb to pull out a camera recorded here on any other day of the year you'd soon be having very intense conversations with heavily armed people but today's basically Hezbollah Open Day and the rules. Don't apply an off-duty Lebanese army soldier shows me his tattoos of Hussein Muhammed's Muhammed's grandson and tells me that he doesn't think there'll be war with Israel. An older woman tells me it's important that the community comes out in force today as a deterrent to Lebanon in southern neighbour. Some black clad teenagers wave me over and NC state the chicken soup. A young woman practices her Australian accent on me okay. Would you like to roast marshmallows may nor kangaroos hop up the nothing. There's a bit of British chases doc. His reputation is undeserved. Actually there's a very bad stereotype but is actually all filled with terrorists and there's always bombs and and Cetera and that's not true like we've been living I. I'm twenty three going on twenty four. I've been living here my whole life and it's actually really beautiful and I've never felt safer life than being here. There's always meant to protect us. Then reasonably normal more conversation with an articulate young woman takes detour. Her boyfriend is a Hezbollah fighter. He did go to Syria a few times. So what did you would like to go more often. Don't let him because I want him here. I love him too much. What is what was his experience. What did he say about it. I told you he'd like to go way more often but I don't let him. It's me that is not letting him go yeah interest. It's you know what sometimes I tell him like God be with. You and I hope you know you just come back safe but yeah it is dangerous. Yeah it is risky and he knows was it and that's why he wants to go. He's a big strong man. How common is it from this area. People go very very comment because we all have the same concept. If I were able to fight I would go to be honest by a girl. They wouldn't let me the rally itself kicks off and it feels it was like all of Beirut is matching past waving Hezbollah's yellow and green flags there a scout troops wearing Atallah. Cassini's photograph pinned to their shirts. It's is a political science student from a Lebanese American University with the photograph of a dead Hezbollah fighter which into his headband Hezbollah Woah yes. Do you think you will. I think everyone afford case along with certain mission whether on their on the battlefield whether the media rather as a position in the hospital the only way. Do you think you'll be on battlefield or I'm not sure aw the parade over opened my phone to navigate my way out of this labyrinth and I'm floyd to realize I'm just a few hundred meters away from the kids playground Yuppie Yeah Park where I've stood arguing about twenty first century problems like my right to winter replay ground with chocolate bars and kids sandwiches. It seems so far away away from this unfamiliar place of guns and vigilance and religion and young people heading off to war This is Adam Havi in south Beirut for correspondence report. Eh One fascinating city Adam Harvey in Beirut there.

People know that's what it's about because the title is set hours yeah. Could you imagine if we kept naming are episodes like that yeah you. I know well. We know what he's about that episode iconic Sarah Bread Hours. We're GONNA make that into merch approach in I don't know about that but in this episode we want to talk about stuff regarding mental health mental issues and stuff because I know it's a very important topic for some of you and it is for us so let's let's get added the it's cut to the chase and now ease into so have any of you struggled with mental house any aspect of it or to any degree. I mean obviously I've like gone through periods. Here's a time where I just feel like sad everyday but I don't know if that counts as like depression I mean how long was how long has added like a month. Maybe one was is like last year. Yeah do you are you. I'm I'm fine. I'm fine. Now I was going to ask you what was the reason Oh. It was just like family stuff yeah yeah. I don't know if that counts. I don't think it was depression but I don't even know like how do I know. I don't think you know unless you're with you truly truly know unless you you go to get a diagnosed adopt but sometimes it kind of seems obvious like you're probably depressed you know. Have you been sad every day for three months. You have thoughts about killing yourself then. You're probably depressed burn. That's another topic we'll get into waiter and I don't think it was like depression depression anything. I was just going through. Something stinks yeah team things. I don't think I have experienced a specific type of mental health illness but I feel like I've definitely you experience a factor or a causing factor of it which is stress. I've definitely become stressed out from school and Family Family Pressures Ashes and friends and all of that yeah basically basically that did did you ever talking to quietly. I'm sorry you're Kinda like whispery but I get it. I get it I get divide your whispering but I get why you would be aggressive. Soothing this episode guy is probably going to be a little more soothing. I kind of feel really relaxed Spain. Why not yeah we actually we're in a better speed. And what are you trying to. He carefully the words Kyle. I'm ahead out okay. Let me restart but yeah this episode will probably be a lot more calm and relaxed and we won't be screaming as much as we did in the last episode anyways Thomas. What about you. Have you ever experienced any mental into health issues. Yeah like in the past episodes. I've mentioned before but I've gone through more. You're stages that I'd like to wow you know have gone through. I mean it's been a rocky journey. That's all all I can really say but it didn't like okay so the oppression I hit me and I was like entering middle school or something during that time but my it was when I came out and it was this whole family yarmuth thing and so that really messed me up mentally and maybe unstable for a good year or so oh and then just other things that I mean. I don't really want to mention but I've always there were times where I felt felt like everything was getting better like I'm getting happier but then he always went back to the way it was where I was just super. Sad Dad and stuff and it was really bad during freshman year. I don't remember if it was driving your software you honestly. I just think like every I is enter middle school and from that point on I've just been like very mentally unstable times where I felt myself getting better and at the moment I definitely feel myself getting better and this time I kind I mean. It got better for a few months but this time it's been going on for a good amount and hopefully it stays like that so you're doing good right now. You'd say yeah I'm doing better. have you ever been medically diagnosed with depression of no no. I I would not want to go to my doctor and all that why not because they're my parents get involved and here's again involved why not because it just. I don't know it's just this horrid deal and I don't want my parents to stress out about that way about your health. Yeah now you say anything. I want to just focus on themselve themselves obviously because I mean it's just that they have so many responsibilities ladies and one of them is me but I don't know it's just like I don't really want to talk to away doctors about it is just not very comfortable tweet but you've talked to the counselor is about coast right the two yeah yeah for a small very short time. I didn't know this very very it was it wasn't a big deal. It was more like just just someone I could talk to every now and then there wasn't you know very official. Traditional Yeah wasn't very traditional but whenever like I didn't need to talk to someone I would have them honestly about me. At the time avenues in seventh grade and of course as most people are way. We dated in Eighth Grade Right Yeah we had it for like two years so I've Cassini you are I was. I was with you throughout these times where you were Kinda. You know really struggling so I know were you were like and how you acted and I noticed You always told me you just you don't believe that going to therapy will help so can you explain why obviously at the time it was just so hopeless you know because when people suffer with depression they obviously don't think it'll ever get better for them and they just don't have a sense of hope or a a motivation to get better because they don't think they will and at the time. I felt that way and I didn't think going to counsel I mean oh I think to a therapist who would help me even though it probably would definitely would have by the time it was just like Whoa. There's nothing they can do about it is just the way it is you know and what about having your parents get involved. Why do you think it you will be seen as a burden I fighter would have just been seen as a burden because my parents are always working and they barely ever get like rested or do but during those restaurants there are also busy with other stuff so I try to knobby so inconvenient for them. You know any. Do you think work is more important to them than their son. Part of the reason why I was struggling so much is because of my relationship with my parents so you didn't trust them yeah yeah. I just didn't really trust them. What what about now. I trust them a lot more beverly I mean my dad has always been very a lot of mood swings so it changes. Sometimes he's really nice and very outgoing with me and then other times. He's just very angry and just ignorant. I guess I very closed minded. Yeah closed mine in but my mom was yes definitely gotten better. I think he I realized that like because okay so when I was growing up. I cried a lot. I was really sensitive and then so everyone would call me a crybaby and especially like my relatives and I was like you know that kind of hurt but anyway so my parents always just thought that Oh you know he's just sensitive whatever he has to get over this at some point but so I guess when actually did become like it wasn't just my sensitivity but my actual like like mental health. They just assumed it was you know me being sensitive in me crying about dumb stuff but I think my mom I just realized that it's a lot more than that and it's like stress from Skoll and all that okay so you think they just got used to you crying crying today. You know that there's a difference between you being mentally unstable and you just being sensitive right. I remember this time where after that incident with the counselor like the the beginning of the year. My Dad had a had to come pick me up and my counselor had to go call them. We've always like conroy like I'd rather just not have the counselors mention anything into my parents but I mean they did anyway so they called him and they let him know what's going on and when he picked me up he was just telling Halima counselor sensitive and like. Oh don't worry he he's just being sensitive like you literally said that counselor embarrassing for me a little because I literally just care my struggles with the counselor and then my my dad walks in and tell telling her like Oh to just basically basically disregarded like how would you react if like sewing said that to you and I felt bad for her because I didn't know what she would do in that situation do I don't even remember I think at the time like heat boy. We just laughed. Oh like I think I think Mike Council was trying her best to like explains. Why Dad like what was going on but obviously my dad's very closed minded and so well he. Did it really care enough so he just we just went home and so after going through all of that if you were to feel that way again today. Would you tell your parents I tell my mom okay and Utah. Maybe Burgess depends which let's go. Kinda sucks but that's just the way it is and you try to get a therapist and try to get a therapist or what would you would you. It was severe then. Yod Get his therapist and what about anonymous help hotlines and stuff. Have you ever tried those. No why not doc I don't know like it just doesn't really cross my mind. What I'm thinking about like you know those kind of thoughts. Well my experience with mental into health I wouldn't say I have much. I guess I did go through a pretty tough patch and my the child hood when I was like twelve years old you know how there's a pretty common the after puberty when I began puberty your home your hormones change and a lot of teenagers get depressed right. You've seen that in that happened to me which which sucked and I remember feeling very very sad. I will set all the time I definitely thought about ending my life more than once joins. The thought about a lot of times do they they. They were ongoing thoughts and I remember how hopeless I felt how badly I wanted to die. During this time was just because of your hormones or now there was also different situations rations. I was in that made me really hate my life and I really hated it and it was it was tough. I it was just you know overwhelming feelings of sadness and anger you felt a lot of of anger and that anger felt towards other people kind of just got trapped and reflected back at myself so I felt lonely to during this time. I remember feeling really lonely out. It was just I cry every night. Every single night I would cry and there was a lot of songs that I used to listen to on repeat because it didn't really even you know here's the the way I view it because might be a little controversial but when people get sad it becomes so easy to be in down mindset and in that mode of being sad that you get so used to it that you don't Wanna be happy again almost because that's that's how I felt I was so used to being sad and crying and honestly it's weird to explain unless you've kind of been through it but I wanted to be happy but at the same time I didn't I was just fine being sad and I guess that's part of just loosen losing hope in life that you don't even WanNa be happy anymore.
"cassini" Discussed on WAAM Talk 1600
"It is a great website, and we'll tell you also how to bid and how to get involved in this wonderful auction. Let me be specific important because it is highly relevant to. Electors people thinking of collecting and to the public at large, for Oleg loose Cassini, rush Italian aristocrat, was, perhaps, the most influential fashion designer the twentieth century, his couture for Hollywood films, and later design house would grace, the most elegant luminaries in society, entertainment, and politics, most notably, he would serve as the sole couturier to the first lady Jacqueline Kennedy just as important where his ready to wear designs, which opened up a new market for high fashion, to the general public only Cassini was also a knowledgeable passionate collector of fine and decorative art. Antique furniture automobiles manuscripts in a range of other items these Peter in his staff. Doyle, will sell it auction on June twenty-seventh welcome back, Peter Costanzo to speaking of art. Thank you. Thank you so very much for that kind introduction. Well, congratulations. I mean this is a monumental sale, and I said, much anticipated and it is every bit. That what a window into the cultural influences the, you know, his historical ancestry his pride in that his range of, of collecting and how that might have influenced his design it's a window into a cultural genius. That is very rare when this occurs, and it's a great opportunity for your public, isn't it? Oh, it sure is. Well, the, the moment where Cassini is designing for Jacqueline. Kennedy as first lady is one of the most iconic of the twentieth century. It's one of the most important fashion moments in American and international history, but it's also something that is taken for granted giving conic stature. So it's really wonderful to have these papers and drawings and artifacts that really do give you insight to how was created and beyond that Mr Casini is a very good example of a life. Well lived. He lived in great comfort. He lived in beautiful homes, he decorated them and collected objects of fifty the look of each home, and I'm happy to talk to you that all right now, I am. Absolutely. You know, one thing about about him. He, he is such a tour to force guide through twentieth century, you know, high society, fashion, the great capitals of the world, particularly in America and Europe. I mean his almost single. Handedly responsible for shifting the, you know, center of gravity of fashion wise, from Europe to America cafe society, and how he benefited from that he would he fit handing glove. In one thing about his book, Peter, which I actually have here in the in the studio with me. And I it's one of the most fascinating autobiographies. I have ever read. In fact, I think I felt absolutely deflated when I was finally finished with it, and I probably I think also Louis Weber, your colleague, there at the Doyle told me, you'd given a talk recently and you had referenced or read passages from the memoir, and I mean, it really is a breezy, highly informative in enjoyable, serve cavalcade through that period. Isn't it? Absolutely. The, the best way to become acquainted with Cassini story is through that autobiography really does piece together all the various phases of his life. Something like Wikipedia. It doesn't do it Justice. You really need to hear it from the horse's mouth. And I agree with you. That in Oleg Cassini, we not only see twentieth, century life, but we really see some nineteenth century. European live lives become twentieth century American lives. His history is quite interesting as you note, he definitely comes from this of Russian nobility. He was born with the title of count. His father was. A Russian ambassador. His mother count Cassini was the daughter of count Arthur Cassini, who was a very important or Russian ambassador to the United States, McKinley and Roosevelt. So he's definitely born into this late nineteenth century, early twentieth century, European ARIS Takeuchi, which was really laid bare and Dayak bre of the people with, with the titles, and the noble titles. And the, the high diplomatic placement, they were all spread all over Europe, after World, War One and the Russian revolution. Yes, the, the whiskey family out of Russia and back into Europe. So all the Cassini is his born into that, but he's raised in Italy pretty much as a Russian exile. And he learns to draw learn how to ride horses, he learns chivalry he studies medieval history. And he studies. Traditional drawing skills. His mother finds her way into the fashion business and he pretty much follows her right into it, and then seeking reinvention he lands in New York during the height of the great depression, which was very interesting time for a, a Russian born count trying to make it in the fashion industry to land in New York because he he had the drawing skills, but he didn't necessarily have all of the practical skills that were required to make it on in Manhattan. Seventh avenue fashion. Peter. To just interject one thing, that's so dramatically enjoyable in the memoir, is how, you know, his family's connections, the cave dwellers in Washington DC, who remembered his mother and, and in grandfather how they rallied to his family's support because as you say they become emigrants twice. I mean, the, the truly frightening passages in the memoir early on about the Russian revolution in the murder of a cousin that he actually witnessed from an upstairs window. And then fleeing to Italy, and then realizing in the mid thirties, Mussolini's, Italy is going into a disastrous deresh direction and they leave and they come here in New York cobbles these alliances together in it's it's wonderful to see how he is able to leap from one stone to the other, you know, and successfully always landing on his feet in a better position. It really is remarkable story in that sense. And he does land on his feet as he goes from relationship to relationship from career career until he does land in Hollywood right in the real golden period of late thirties and early nineteen forties. And of course, I think it really is important to note that he did serve in the I in the coast guard and then in the cavalry corps, where he became an American citizen and he used his his horsemanship skills, you use them to his advantage. And he also was forced to renounce his title of count during World War Two, and he became an American citizen. And so his life that begins again at about in his early nineteen thirties in the early nineteen forties is very different than the life that came before the life, after it's really fascinating. But ultimately Oleg Cassini after his time in Hollywood, where he had been married to gene Tierney. Yes, he had designed dresses. For her major films. He designed dresses for Veronica lake. He had really worked his way up in the studio system. He eventually lands himself back in New York City, and launches his self-named fashion label away. Cassini Anki launches that in the early nineteen fifties and really came to fruition for him the nineteen sixties when the relationship with MRs Kennedy really the forefront. And that is really where our auction really begins while we do have remarkable objects in the auction, harkening back to his early years. Grandfather, there's a painting of his mother, by the Russian artists Constantin Makovsky of count Cassini, but there is some artifacts of early life. But there's many artifacts of this fashioned time period, which has, I think we'd really like to talk about and also something had talked about before the Jacqueline. Kennedy phase is his brief engagement with Grace Kelly who was movie star. On the planet, and we're very lucky to have four handwritten manuscripts letters from her three of which are written from Hollywood, when she was there filming for Elfriede Hitchcock. So it really gives a window into the mindset of Grace Kelly when she was the biggest movie star in the country during the. Yeah, go ahead. No. I mean it's also getting ready for our talk today. I've just been immersed in Hitchcock with Grace Kelly the last couple of weeks and revisiting these fabulous windows into the golden age to catch a thief, particularly rear window. It's just it is amazing. And you're, you're right. She was the luminary in Hollywood at the time, and they were engaged and it's actually very heartbreaking, very difficult. No thing in the book that to read through that because you almost feel like tapping to you. But that also spurred him artistically which is reflected in the auction didn't. Yes. His relationship with Grace Kelly, I think laid him low a little bit. And he really was seeking reinvention and landed back in New York City, and of really put himself wholeheartedly into his fashion label at that time, and he did have some connection to the Kennedy family even before designing for MRs Kennedy joke. Joe Kennedy earlier. He had met his war, Ciro war hero, son JFK that they had been introduced to each other. There's even some dalliance between Tierney and JFK that you can read about. And so he was a total stranger to John Kennedy or MRs Kennedy nineteen sixty at the time of the election when he when he becomes her designer. So they were somewhat familiar with each other. He always thought of himself as a as a courtier kind of like a latter day. Castiglioni or something like that, who is because of that European that continental finesse he was able to really provide really Camelot. He provided a lot of that glamour, I mean, not even just the dresses. But just as own presence and influence I seem to reflect that cosmopolitan culture in Washington at that time. Absolutely. There is an instance, where they have a letter in the sale where they're talking about it, and he describes describes in his autobiography as well. That him and MRs Kennedy had a conversation where he told her that you have the opportunity for an American verse here. And MRs Kennedy reported to him that she wanted the White House to become this place. Where ideas were exchanged and the whole country. Knew that with the election of Jack Kennedy was coming, a very youthful seachange into the White House, and I do think that in the via the clothing and the, the atmosphere, that was created we definitely see a gateway to the nineteen sixties as through Oleg Cassini, and what he accomplished with MRs Kennedy. And if you look at not only first lady fashioned from nineteen sixty tonight, seventy all American fashion from nineteen sixty nineteen seventy s it's a it's remark. Remarkable how how different fashion was, and that time period, and I do think that the Oleg Cassini Jacqueline Kennedy relationship is what opened the gate to that change. I mean for for me, Peter fashion. For say, for women was particularly strong in the first years of the twentieth century, and then it gets kind of subsumed in the hold the art deco period. The postwar period it doesn't really come up again until Cassini in particularly in the fifties. And then the Camelot years it reaches I think an apogee..
"cassini" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Your cassini's is here with us. How did you bring these three things together we just we were sitting around? And we were like, let's go through the alphabet. They all came to us at one time and different pitches. We get lots of pitches for small business. From the newsroom from freelancers because there are such great stories out there. Right. So actually, making choices can be a little tough. Sometimes right. Let's start with sneakers 'cause I love this story surge. They're they're not cheap. Very cool. They're very cool. This is an east German brand that was revived about a decade after the fall of the wall. And it took about ten years for the founders who brought it back to like really figure out what they were doing and make it work. It's called Qods eha. I mean, I'm not sure how to describe the one of the classic styles is like a combo of sort of a bowling shoe, and a soccer shoe not to draw comparisons. But I will jot comparison some people say they look like campers, but there are kind of cooler than campers they've got stripes on the sides there leather, they're very sturdy, and these were very popular in east Germany before the fall of the wall and kind of competing with the likes of Puma. And that's I mean, that's what was available to east Germans was the brand. And then they they kind of went away because then when it was open to all kinds of products after the fall of the wall people were like. Why do I need disaster? Does it has her cool and well-made and they come back. I'm always curious about a brand. One of the investors in the business. Now was somewhere, you know. And noticed somebody a friend of his wearing a pair, and he recognized them because he grew up in east Germany and was like, wait a second. Those look kind of familiar and he was intrigued. So he started looking into what had happened was there still a factory and so on and so forth. And he decided I'm going to do this. He against the advice of some people. He found a cobbler who had worked for the original concept was like, you're crazy. Like, what are you thinking about doing here? And there are all these brands in footwear and sneakers have always been competitive. We think of sneakers as being a really big deal. Now secrets are always something that has been very competitive, you know, people want what's the coolest. What's the latest? Where's it coming from whatever the cachet is that it's got back story. I think people are like, but this did have a history and a story, and we know right from so many stories that we do that. That is something that more and more people really like that in the brands that they decide they're going to invest in. In for themselves. They wanna feel like there's a history there. It's not just in the style. That's a big part of it. But it's also well it's been around for so long, and they're so well made and they're really sturdy. They're like, you know, they're very expensive like workmen's shoes. So that's you know, that's kind of what's what's happened. Yeah. All right from sneakers to killer. Snails I have no better segue than that feels about killer snails killer sales in other company based in Brooklyn founded by three women, and it's all about science and education and really trying to get kids teenagers excited about science. When the founders of the company who came together in various ways would talk about what was going on with science and science education. They were seeing trends that were kind of troubling in terms of not enough young people really pursuing careers in science. And they thought we have to find a way to excite kids about science what we wanted to do with this story was when Nick library who's one of our regular contributors to BusinessWeek into small business met one of these women. She was talking a lot about how everything is based on their testing. And they're piloting like it's all about that. You don't create a product for kids and and middle schoolers and high schoolers especially if. If you don't find a way to tap into that audience and really see how something works with them. So more and more what we'd like to do with small business. We're trying to do is really kind of identify parts of the business that might be challenging or that you might have some questions about and break it apart for you in ways that are accessible. So here we have some of their what they've learned over the last five or so years four to five years of testing testing testing pilot programs extensively they just launched a national pilot program for a new game what they produce this card games digital games app based products, and they're mostly looking to partner up with schools. Right. I mean, they're selling to teachers as a way to supplement science education. So they really learned a lot. And they don't only learn about the products. They learn about how to make the pilot program the next time around even more effective. Okay. So what's next? Alright. Cider Steph curry bring it all home. So this is just kind of we thought let's do something really funny. Here. There's nothing really official behind what we posit, and what the owner of this business, Golden State cider posits. But Golden State cider is a cider company in California. And it does quite well when the Golden State Warriors do quite well. And when Steph curry is out there doing, you know, working his magic. And so when we looked at the time line and the history of the of the company as compared to something like when when we're the warriors and the chaos. When did Steph curry sign with the warriors. We thought this is kind of a fun little way that we can bring this all together. It is. It's it's an old family business. That was an apple orchard that simply sold. Apple apples weren't enough to cut it in the very pricey sonoma's region that it's in where more and more of the land started selling for more and more five ten years, especially because of Pinot Noir production, so they pivoted and decided, you know, what we're going to take what we have which is apples, and we're going to create hard cider. And there was nothing much happening with cider at the time that this happened around two thousand fifteen two thousand fourteen but but right after that cider really started just taking often booming and similar to you know, cool sneaker that people want. I mean, they're sort of something that people are really into ciders right now insiders largely are mostly gluten free. So tapped into that. But. The sonoma's cider company or the San Francisco cider company wouldn't be having the same. But you know, you find you find people who are saying, hey, we're going to have our party around the playoffs around the NBA finals the warriors in the finals, and we are going to buy Golden State cider to have it the party because why not because we're all Golden State fans. So it's really a fun little story. And they're again, they're they're doing quite well, and as you point out the cider is carried at Steph Curry's wife's store, so there is closed degrees. What that's exactly what the founder says he has no idea of Steph Curry's ever have tasted the staff, but it is at his wife's restaurant, and it is the best selling in the in the beer category in all of whole foods north California's forty three stores, so it's doing better than a lot of craft beers. Which is pretty remarkable. That's Dimitri kassy's the editor of the solution section. And what I like about this. Jason we know. Talk about this on our daily program. All the time about the importance of kind of checking in on small businesses, what they're up to they are the backbone of the US economy, and I love just seeing the variety that's out there. And we live in this time where so many consumers are interested in the story behind the product. That's clearly the.

They learn about how to make the pilot program the next time around even more effective. Okay. So what's next, right? Cider Steph curry bring it all home. So this is just kind of we thought let's do something really funny here. There's nothing really official behind what we posit, and what the owner of this business, Golden State cider posits. But Golden State cider is a cider company in California and. It does quite well when the Golden State Warriors do quite well. And when Steph curry is out there doing, you know, working his magic. And so when we looked at the time line and the history of the of the company as compared to something like when when we're the warriors when did Steph curry sign with the warriors, we thought this is kind of a fun little way that we can bring this all together it is. It's an old family business. That was an apple orchard that simply sold. Apple spent apples weren't enough to cut it in the very pricey cinema region that it's in where more and more of the land started selling for more and more five ten years ago, especially because of Pinot Noir production, so they pivoted and decided you know, what we're gonna take what we have which is apples, and we're going to create hard cider. And there was nothing much happening with cider at the time that this happened around two thousand fifteen two thousand fourteen but but right after that cider really started taking. Often booming and similar to you know, cool sneakers that people want I mean, they're sort of something that people are really into ciders right now insiders largely are mostly gluten-free tapped into that themselves the sonoma's cider company or the San Francisco cider company. What would it be having? But you know, you find you find people who are saying, hey, we're going to have our party around the playoffs around the NBA finals of the warriors in the finals, and we are going to buy Golden State cider to have at the party because why not because we're all Golden State fans. So it's really a fun little story. And they're again, they're they're doing quite well, and and as you point out the cider is carried at Steph Curry's wife's store, so there is closed degrees. What that's exactly what the founder says he. He has no idea of Steph Curry's ever had tasted the staff, but it is at his wife's restaurant, and it is the best selling in the in the beer category in all of whole foods north California's forty three stores, so it's doing better than a lot of craft beers. Which is pretty remarkable. That's Dimitri caffeine eighties. The editor of the solution section. And what I like about this Jason we know we talk about this on our daily program all the time about the importance of kind of checking in on small businesses what they're up to they are the backbone of the US economy, and I love to seeing the variety that's out there. And we live in this time where so many consumers are interested in the story behind the.

"Time. New data from messes Cassini mission indicate satins iconic rings are typically recent addition to the majestic guest giants. The new findings reported in the journal science show that satins rings only form between ten million and one hundred million years ago, the fundings are based on the new analysis of gravity signs data gleaned from measurements collected during the final ultra close orbits of Cassini performed. In twenty seventeen is the space craft near the end of its starring mission, the planet said and form the bet four point six billion years ago in the early years of the solar system. There have always been lots of theories suggesting that planetary ring systems fairly relatively ephemeral faces blasting just a few tens of millions of years before slowly fading away. But as to how long they're really lasting how long sentence had her rings. Well, no one's ever been. Really, sure. The figure out the edge of censoring scientists needed to mention something else the mess of the rings. Well, how much material they're held research is already had remote sensing measurements from. Cassini as well. As from both of Nassar's voyages spacecraft from the early nineteen eighties. But then Cam cassini's unprecedented up close data from its final bits as the spacecraft was running out of fuel necessary propulsion laboratory in Pasadena, California, which operated Cassini performed a series of twenty two dives between the planet and its rings. These dives allowed the spacecraft to test sentence gravity field where it could feel but the tug of the planet and the rings radio signals Cinta Cassini from the Antenne is of necessary space network in the European Space Agency relay the spacecraft's velocity and exhilarated, and how that changed as a result of different gravitational effects one. Scientists knew just how much gravity was pulling on Cassini and causing it to accelerate data just a fraction of a millimeter per second. Then the term in how massive the planet was and how massive it's rings were the study's lead author Luciano lists. From the university of room says only by getting close to saddening cassini's final. It's with scientists able to gather the measurements. They needed to work out. The details for data allowed Cassini to complete one of the fundamental goals of its mission. Not only to determine the mess of the rings. But to use that information to refine models to determine the age of the rings as well. Then you findings building the connection scientists previously made between the mess of the rings and their age you say low mash points to a younger age because the rings which are bright and mostly men have is would have been contaminated and doc by interplanetary debris over long a period with a better calculation of ring mass, scientists were better able to estimate ring age, but it's not yet scientists will continue working to try and figure out how the rings actually formed the new evidence of young rings Lynn's credence to theories that bay formed either from a comment that wanted to close in was torn apart by saddens gravity or by an event, which broke up early generation of icy moons from Cassini super close vantage point most in sentence, gravity. Field the space craft relayed measurements. That let scientists to another surprising discovery. It's long bay known that satins Equatorial atmosphere rotates around the planet faster than its inlays. And core. Think of a set of miss that cylinders ole rotating different spades Benchley towards the center of the planet. The lays old move in synchrony and rotate together jubilee atmosphere behaves in the same way. But these new findings show that saddens cloud lay is start rotating synchrony much deeper into the planet at least nine thousand kilometers in that some three times day than the same phenomenon Jupiter. In fact, it's a dip that it was about fifteen percent of sentence entire radius Cassini project. Scientist Linda Spilka from GPO says the discovery of deeply rotating lays is pricing revelation about the internal structure of satin. The questions are what's causing the mole rapid rotating pot of the atmosphere to go so date. And what does that tell us about sentence interior at the same time this measurement of sentence? Gravity has solved yet. Another unknown. The mesh of the core models of the interior developed by co with a visible at milita from the university of California Berkeley indicate that sentence coal assembly between fifteen and eighteen times, the mess of the earth cassini's mission ended in September twenty seventeen when it was low on fuel virtually flying on vapors and was deliberately plunged in the sense that misfield Notre to protect the planets moons. Some of which could have a live from the potential of contamination. I'm Stewart Gary you'll listen to space time. Iran has failed in its bid to place. It's ninety kilogram.
