"We're all glad to have survived. Thousand twenty the change in the us administration suggests it may be time for a different tone in how americans work on the issues our country needs to tack. But are we up. For an essay on the unraveling of america an anthropologist. Wade davis wrote for rolling stone last august. Got people talking. He joins us now from his home near vancouver. Bc to explore. America's changing role in global politics is essay is sort of like a letter to a neighbor who needs a little tough love and that neighbor happens to be a canadian anthropologist. Wade thanks for joining us. My pleasure could be with you so you wrote an article. That apparently is the most widely read thing. Rolling stone has ever published. Will it hit a real nerve. Million people read it on the site. It trended number one for five weeks three hundred and sixty two million social media impressions within two months and my visitations to my wikipedia. Site soared from a modest one hundred fifty a day to over four thousand. Just hit this nerve wrecking a none of us expected that nervous like that Little quip that's going around on the internet suggesting that to live in candidate today is like owning an apartment above a meth lab. Robin williams. Actually your essays. You say. it's a love letter. But it's a love letter called the unraveling of your neighbor america. How is it a love letter. Well i think when you have someone you love and you do. A family intervention. The most important in the first thing have to do is hold a mirror chisholm to show how far they've fallen. Because that's the first step in the path of rehabilitation and. I think that things have happened so fast. In america that in a way people look in the mirror and they still see the myth of their on exceptionalism and they don't necessarily see how far things have changed and i think kovic revealed that you know it didn't cost the country to fall but revealed to what extent the country had fallen. And i think a lot of that's just about the nature of community and i think where canada's not perfect place but it is interesting to compare the consequences of covid in the two countries way. It's it's interesting because americans. I think we take up a little bit offence when somebody from country critiques us. But we're more likely to listen to canadians. And it's so helpful for somebody to remind us that the global view of america has changed a little bit. I mean people used to look at us differently than they do now well as a great reporter for the irish times you know. They've been many motions expressed about america's since world war two but one that has never been there is there now that was pity. And that was how the world saw america's frontline healthcare workers were waiting. The arrival of emergency supplies on air lists from china. It was almost like the hinge of history opened the asian century. Pity that's something new. Another thought that. I've had is. When i if i ever refer to america's as an empire people take offense to it but we're an empire to me and empires rise and empires fall. I'm a historian and and it's frustrating to me. How unable or unwilling americans are to realize. History may be speaking to us in your essay. You reminded us how empires come and empires go. Well no kingdom expects to fall and they all do you know historically if you think in european tradition. The fifteenth century belonged to the portuguese the sixteenth to the spanish to seventeen to the dutch. The eighteenth to the french and the the nineteenth to the british. The british empire actually reached its greatest geographical extent in nineteen thirty five. But we know of course that by the end of world war two empire was bankrupt and bled white in the torch had in fact passed to america. What clearly yeah. I mean if you look at the numbers after world war two we were so dominant and comfortable thinking. We're the last great superpower. But of course as you said look at what the past has taught us and i think pretty clearly right now. There's a changing of the the torch ever further westward in it and china is emerging as the next great superpower I mean i don't necessarily look forward to that moment with any kind of The light and i think if if and when we find out that this is the fading of the american era. I think we'll be very nostalgic for the best years of that era.

"Dickinson read An excerpt from Shirley Chisholm is memoir on Box and on Bost. American idea of going on the campaign trail has evolved over time. Today, we might conjure images of candidates eating fried foods at the Iowa State Fair or making gaffes in Michigan. But believe it or not. In the early 19th century, we didn't have airplanes or Twitter. Not to mention Iowa or Michigan. Back then the whistle stop tour was just taking shape and the breathless sort of journalistic coverage we enjoy now just wasn't possible. Give you a sense of how far things have come in terms of coverage and the tone of that coverage. Let's revisit the contentious campaign of 18 28, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson engaged in a bruising contest full of accusations of bigamy, cannibalism. And worse, broadsides were more likely than objective reporting, and the press often felt like partisan propaganda. The following are excerpts from the pro Adam's newspaper National Journal on the pro Jackson Telegraph. Deal with one of the tamer accusations of the day. And Andrew Jackson was nearly illiterate. The National journal. Mr Adams is a scholar. Is he to be superseded by a man of no education? Mr. Adams is a state Smith. Is he to give way to a mere soldier? Mr Adams has been bred in the Cabinet or in the school were national laws and interests are objects of study. Is he Make room for a man bread in the camp experienced only in civil Broyles and who has resigned every civil appointment on account of his admitted incompetency to fill it. I imagine that was written by an angry, judgmental mustache. And this is the telegraph. History abound, with splendid examples of men remarkable for great qualities who could not even read their own language, much less write it with accuracy but to argue against the presumption of General Jackson's fitness for the presidency because he cannot spell his absurd. We care. Not if you spell Congress with the K. He may not withstanding, understand the rights and duties of that body or of the people or himself as well as if he spelled it correctly. And that presumably was written by a sentient hickory stick. So maybe journalists do a bit more of Journalism on the trail these days. Still, as you can hear, some arguments about a candidate's fitness for office have remained pretty much the same. It's too bad because if we could agree on a basic presidential spelling test Primary season could be a lot shorter. When we return hundreds, Thompson.

You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black.

I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests.

I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward.

For me a diverse decision making table regardless of where it fits in my my my political ideology still makes better decisions and so being able to ensure that if we're looking at this, just from a from a two political idealism spectrum conservative to progressives, we need to be pushing both spectrum's to ensure that their leadership looks Divers and looks like America and then for me is that I have no problem being able to be in a brave conversation where we put push our counterparts to be better on issues or center center, our communities in those issues So no, I think that we should ensure that each decision making table is diverse, so that she still has unique, a unique Experience as a black woman in America that she's bringing to a table that would without her leadership, be void of a discussion about race and gender and another person that you've helped campaign Letitia James, the first black woman to Vienna to York attorney general, she took on Exxon Mobil and lost Tell us about her and some of the other.

You know, behind my shoulder is Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to ever be elected to Congress in 1968. So we're 51 years and she you know, became the first black woman to serve in that body. She went on four years later, literally 48 years. From like. Today she was preparing for the 1972 Democratic convention, where she would go in her name be entered into nomination from the floor. So there's been gains around black leadership since then. N gains for black women, But the 23 million black woman this country are underrepresented in under served in this tribe that we've seen since Shirley Chisholm is in through higher heights, and I worked with the center for American Women in Politics. You can't actually build a blueprint for if you don't know where you've been Sankofa, right? And so when you look at black women's leadership In 2014 There was only one to black woman elected in serving as mayors of top 100 cities, so enter to 2020 and what we see on the national stage are seven black woman leading major cities and, frankly being more progressive on how they're approaching covert 19 than their counterparts across the country in our country's history.

And so she again entered Koba 19 recognizing the racial disparities both from a health perspective. From an economic perspective and I think has leading well is to circle right back to where surely show them In 2018 we elected the largest number of women ever to serve in Congress, including the largest number of black woman to ever serve that body. We now have 25 black women serving in Congress, one African American woman in the U. S Senate, which is Kamala Harris, with only elected to in our country's history. In 1972. Ah, Carol Moseley Braun and now Kamala Harris and we have 24 black woman serving in the House of Representatives. But what's unique about the freshman class is they were their leadership was built for time. Is this. So? Who did we know that in 2018 we would elect Lorna Underwood, a nurse. Who's uniquely qualified to sit at a table as we determine how we are preparing in the intersection of racial Lynn's around health disparities who knew that in 2018 when we since Johanna Hes not only a teacher, but the 2016 teacher of the year to serve in Congress that she would be sitting at the table that as we envision how we home school?

We have built the political home for black woman's leadership. And to be clear it's center. It is. It was found it formed by black women. It's centers black woman, But we recognized that this democracy is more than black women. And so part of the reason why we use the analogy of being a Home for those who know the tradition of black women, my grandmother regardless of how much money she had or had not didn't have. There's always an extra seat at our dinner table. Right. And it didn't matter who are brothers. My brothers and I would bring home. You know, we grew up in Connecticut. We always joke around. For some people like there are black people in Connecticut and, you know, Although we grew up in a black community, we were bused to an affluent white school districts. You know, we I graduated from high school with less than 10 People of color..

Why Gen Z is being labelled Generation Anxiety
"So it's twenty twenty. We're officially in the next great decade. But I won't lie to you. It's hard to be optimistic. About what the future sure holds a new report says home. Affordability is a growing problem for the average Canadian families. A new study of wildfires around the world from the Amazon rainforest to California says human activity is raising temperatures and adding to the threat. Job Market is tough and it's especially tough for college graduates. A huge number of them are actually working at jobs. That don't even fire a college degree if you're a millennial or a boomer or one of those rare rare Gen xers you might be able to get away with blaming this pessimism for the future on your age and life experience but the same can't be said for generations the young bucks of the future. Today's teens and young adults they should be excited about the next ten years keyword should in reality party they aren't instead they're being labeled generation anxiety anxiety is nothing new among young people but Gen Z.. is worried about vote. Much bigger and more pressing issues than previous generations. So how much of it is justifiable. How is it affecting young people right now? And what can other generations due to be more helpful and understanding I'm Stephanie Phillips in for Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Johanna Chisholm is a digital. It'll producer at the Toronto Star. She looked into why Gen Z.. Is being labeled generation anxiety. Hydra Hannah. Hello how are you Stephanie. I'm good thanks so when we first reached out to you to get you on the show you said that this topic you know really interested you What about this topic interested you so much for sure I'll admit that it was assigned to me by an editor. So I don't WanNa take full credit for it But what I was given the opportunity to sort of dig into this topic. I was Gung gung-ho because partially previous reporting that I had done kind of focused on Internet culture in youth and so I had come across bits of anxiety in teens in adolescence revolving mostly around like self harm on social media accounts but when I was given the opportunity to dig into why it is that the more broad generation is experiencing anxiety at such high rates than other generations. I thought this is an awesome time to go on. This and I had the space to do. It hadn't hadn't editor support to do it so that's really why I was really interested in digging into it so you wrote that Gen Z.. is going to be remembered as this. This generation anxiety. So what is the reason. Most recent data tell us about the levels of anxiety for this generation. There was a lot of really interesting. Thank studies that came out about this. The one that I thought was most relevant to our readers that are you know Toronto Ontario focused Cam each study. That came out that she saw a fifteen percent increase in youth. Anxiety between two thousand thirteen and two thousand seventeen and that was in the Self reporting so again. There are problems with that but but this huge jump to see just in five years. That teens are self reporting that they themselves are suffering from severe psychological distress which is characterized as either depression or anxiety symptoms and then there was an EPA study that came out from the American psychological association that sort of mirrored that data in Americans Americans students that it was doubling from two thousand ten to two thousand fifteen which is in that same sweet spot. We were talking about with the two thousand ten being this sort of anxious decade So that that was confirming in the numbers and then the part that I was assigned tasked with really doing was going to the kids and the teens and actually speaking speaking with them to find out what's going on with you guys not that you can really contrast it with the before but just to get their takes on why they're feeling anxious and what's going on there air so so who did you talk to And and what did they tell you about their anxiety So there was a large group of teens that reach out to me. Initially Ashley. It was kind of hard getting you know. Anxious people to come forward and talk about their most intimate feelings about things but eventually I was able to get a hold of Some teens from ages fourteen to seventeen who are in high school and junior high to get thirsty takes on it from more to less inside of things and then I was able to get teens. Who are in the university level? So twenty two twenty three because Gen Z.. Cuts off twenty-three. In most situations some people push it to be twenty-five five. I think but I think most people agree like Pew Research Center Says Ninety Seven to two thousand twelve. Is Jesse because you had to be. I guess like sentient went for nine. Eleven for that event to be characterized as millennial and yeah so I spoke with a bunch of different teens all who were experiencing different kinds of anxiety Heidi and kind of different levels of awareness about it so once I spoke with he didn't even really characterize his symptoms as anxiety because he didn't even really know that it was anxiety he was just looking out at. What are my prospects after I graduate and he no? He's an ECON student at the University of Toronto. A student and really good and pretty sure. He's good for for jobs after graduation but even he was looking at job banks Canada every single day and was like my heart just feels heavy. I was getting Migraines at the library and couldn't really like put into words why he was feeling these things and then when someone asked him like hey do you think it's anxiety he was like. Oh maybe I don't know whereas other students I spoke with reveal airy capable of putting the words to what they were feeling so I think that also speaks to level of awareness ernest. That's out there for young people that previously wasn't there right and I spoke with a climate activist in high school. who had some very powerful awful things to say for seventeen year old that I quite honestly was blown away by but she was sort of just experience or explaining how you know she would talk to her dad about it was like for him growing up and the contrast between what she's looking at and what he was looking at? which was you know? Buy a home get a job or get a job by home. Live in the suburbs CBS. Pay Off your mortgage and she's looking at it like. How am I going to afford school? I don't even know if I can with all these. Oh stop cuts with all of these different stressors in the economy. Hey how can I even think about getting to the point where I'm getting a job or so much even buying a house There's a lot lot in there. Yeah those are big issues. Yeah complicated issues. What is research? Tell us about the world that these young people are well. There was a lot And part of the issue had Haad reporting it was like I'm packing it all into one article because you know you look at the world that these kids are walking into the world is on fire quite right literally at their feet. A precarious work is a huge issue. For them one in ten Canadians I believe stats candles. Reports that are part of the GIG. Economy and precarious work isn't just GIG. Work present as contract work or part time work but there's just an increasing amount of this non secure lifestyle that these other parents have There's also also the retreat of democracy that we're seeing fake news You know just social media technology all of these different things it's the cacophony of things. Just being shutdown these kids throats. So it's it's a lot that's To unpack for someone. Who's you know this vulnerable age group? Who are now between the ages of eighteen take twenty three to accept just digest and be like okay? Well maybe I won't be able to get a job and maybe I won't be able to afford a house and all those things that basically secured cured having good quality of life aren't going to be attainable. Well I I was talking about it. With other producers on our team and a lot of them expressed russell. They had feelings of anxiety when they were in high school or university. But it wasn't about these like big issues news about things that were kind of in control like their friendships or short term goals. Like you know. What University am I going to go to our? What job am I going to guide? Or what skill am I going. Go into that kind of thing. So what makes the situation for Gen Z.. So so different. Why are they concerned with these big issues? I will say that I think technology definitely is playing a large role in it. Part of the the Kwanza have with like pointing our fingers right technology to be the thing that's causing us is sort of a knee jerk reaction to say. Oh you know. Phones and cell phones and social media are causing all these woes and our youth because that sort of rationale has been applied to previous generations. When you Komo TV was causing it? We always point our finger at exactly social media digital world share But I definitely think it plays a role and I was speaking with a a researcher in the United States who sort of studies the role of technology and family life. Okay and she was explaining how not just technology but the way the information nation the sheer quantity of information that is just constantly available at your hip and just a moments away versus previously when you could kind of choose to not be turned the TV on and you could choose to have the radio off. That's not an option so much for teens The other thing that I'll point out that in some of the feedback that I received from Just readers who are of those generations you know the the boomers the Gen xers they were pointing out the stressors that they
3 Ways To Talk Your Way To A Stronger Culture
"Welcome Marlene Chisholm. Thank you so much and yet and I WANNA say welcome to Oh you. I'm really excited to be here with you. Know what kind of a commitment that takes in today's time very difficult to live program so I hope I if you the value and it was worth it so we titled. This three ways to talk your way to straughter culture well. If it was really that easy I'm going to give you some language though and and some techniques that you can use today because I believe that it needs to be practical so you've heard the saying watch your thoughts they become your words and in heard watchwords they become your behaviors and watch your behaviors because they become your culture her and you know there's been some definition of culture that it's all about behaviors however when I was working with bad some of the experts writing my last book no drama leadership it's really more than behaviors inch really about shaping culture and behaviors just just being a part of that so the real question that we're here to consider is how leaders shape culture well we shave culture through thoughts words and behaviors it really. WanNa be clear to that. It's not just about leadership in it's not just about thoughts words and behaviours although that's the scope for today and just want to say very briefly that there are many influences that that come into play when we talk about culture and one of those that was brought to my attention was by Dr Edgar Shine one of the the the best the most well-known leaders in culture the MIT sloan professor just a genius when it comes to culture and when we were talking about my book look and I was seeking his endorsement he said you know it's the way we do things on the inside and get along so that we can produce results for the outside so in other words we have the internal influences of external so today we'll be talking mostly about those internal influences. That's the leaders can actually take action action on so I I WANNA share with the foundation that is it every single bid of my work in every single book. It's something that I share workshops at something I do in speaking engagements because it helps people to get a visual framework of how look at the ways that we achieve results and and the barriers that come into play when we're on the on the journey of it achieving results so this is a new language that I often referred to in workshops call the language of the island and the ideas that were always trying to get from point eight point beasts. He's seen the little guy in the rowboat you see that island and that. Little Robo can represent just you as your as an executive you as a leader origin represent your entire team so this is useful no matter what your what your roller your title or always he's trying to get to what I call. The island called peace and prosperity so you could call that your prophets your revenue goals your end of the year you're in the quarter goals nonetheless we refer to it as getting to peace and prosperity because there's only one reason we want anything and that's a cause we're going to have a sense of completion and peace about it or windex index and in some ways either revenue or personal growth so we're always trying to get to peace and prosperity but then we have an obstacle in the obstacle as you can see the shark and in my body of work. I talk about drum a lot. I've written a lot about drama but I used drama in a different way than what we typically think of it so oh my definition is that drama is any obstacle to peace and prosperity so wherever we're trying to go there's this drama this something that stands in the way on the middle level management arena what I see from those that her in that level or those that are leaders over that level. We see a lot of relationship problems. We see that someone won't get the work done or we see complaining and gossip is that relationship issue becomes drama or it becomes the personal issues that employees have and the reason why there late at work or the reason you're having turnover. There's a lot of obstacles that come up that keep you from getting into peace and prosperity and so I often ask in workshops. I asked the audience to ask you. How do you know someone's drama is when I pause for a moment. How do you know what someone's dramas doesn't matter what their level well. How you know is that they talk about it because we human beings cannot help talk about whatever bothers us and becomes this becomes my shark my shark but you don't understand my shark and as you can see the more we focus on the problem the bigger the problem gets and we then become enmeshed in a problem oriented way of thinking instead of an outcome instead head of thinking about what do we want to create and so what happens is we have these sharks and the cultural issues include both visible and the invisible and I talked about some of those visible just a moment ago how it shows in relationships the office drama the backstabbing the gossip the power struggle struggle that happen but it happens on a major level in major organizations or seeing a lot of visible drama and politics right now and jokingly people used to say well. No no wonder we have a lot of drama. We have a lot of women in our department and then I jokingly say well. My next book is going to be called men and have drama too because all you have to look sports and politics into much bigger form of drama but the point that I make is that we all have obstacles to our growth and to you the the bottom line to the end results about. We're GONNA look at both the visible in the end this because I think it's really important to understand that what you're seeing being on the surface may not be the facts and the reality is just what you're seeing on the surface and so the question then becomes how do these obstacles does. How does drama manifest well in the workplace. You're going to see that manifesting communication relationships with their bats with your clients your patients your the customers your employees the productivity levels you're going to be able to measure it on some way you're gonna be able to see observable behaviors and observable results but on the bottom level on the invisible realm where the drama and we're the cultural issues are really. I guess Redid or where they are unseen. It really has to do with the thoughts emotions beliefs and decisions and that's really becoming a big part of my work right now is to help leaders gain that clarity on what thoughts when emotions what belief sweat decisions are driving these cultural issues and that's outside of the environmental environmental and legislative impact that we have regarding culture so I also have a little test ask people. Do you think it's really important to had drama in the bud as you can see us a lot of analogy. I use a lot of pictures because I want people to get out of their logical thinking mind and into more a picture type of mindset you can clearly see what's really going on and there's cultural issues and of course everybody agrees yes. We should drop it in the bud. Well that is a trick question because if you drop in Nevada it's as if you have a field of Dandelions and you clip off the bloom and underneath you have a root system awesome and the next year you have a field full of Dandelions so culturally how we often nip in the bud instead of getting to the root is that we move if someone to a different department and I've heard this even at very high levels while they have three years to retire and we just can't let them go. We have to kind of ride this out milkis out until the retire or we play a lot of games like we're. GonNa show them who's boss and make their job very difficult until they voluntarily quit. This creates a culture of mistrust. It creates a culture of drama and this avoid into we're gonNA talk about this later. I'm also willing to share with you how identify roots and poetic so this is kind of a layered approach to to talking about culture so I'm going to answer the question. You know where we're going in the presentation. HOW LEADERS SHAPE CULTURE is to clarity connection and conversations and that wasn't on purpose that I have the three Cs but I absolutely loved the way it sounds. I loved the way because it's easy to remember so if you just start to think throughout this presentation I as a leader or my executives as we're running the company. Here's the three freeways that we are shaping culture. Perhaps without even knowing it. It's in clearly it's in our connections and it's in our conversations so that's. GonNa be the remainder of what I talk about but as well as the root systems always present because what she see the roots of drama and the obstacles that prevent you from creating the culture that you say that you want awed you now have that piece and you also have the the clarity connection in conversation piece which you can then design some sort of a initiative. You should have a program a training a leadership development so that you can consciously create your culture instant of leading it. It ran a chance so the first apiece is that we need to get clear and clarity is a big part of my work. It's it's been something that's been part of my own development. I have struggled with clarity in my own career path and developing my consulting practice and the good news about that is because I understand it. I'm really compassionate about it and we do not need to fear the lack of clarity bet. We need to understand the distinction of where we're clear and we're we're not because I I root of. All drama is a lack of clarity. Now I talk about this a lot and I'm gonNA give you resources along the way that you can jot down. You're more than welcome to email email me afterwards as well. This gives you other places to look for some of this content on a deeper level so in the first Book Stop Workplace Drama published by Wiley that this was a premise that I've used throughout my career. I use it in my life because it's a it's a universal principle that in all drama there's always a common route and the first rate is is a lack of clarity so here's the thing that you should know about that. In all drama there's lack of clarity and then the second component of this is the one with clarity always navigates the ship now. The reason I have that piece in is that I have worked in you know years ago I work. It's a lot with middle level managers. They were growing and as as the counties were developing their their leaders they would ask me to come in and do some you know frontline line or like middle level leadership training and the questions would come up. You know I've got a pasta or I've got at Queen Bee. I've got this person truly difficult the cult to to handle and so I would ask the question why does I'm they give what they do and the and the answer is will because it works so if you're not able to guide your team if you're not able to create that cleberation there's someone who knows what they want more than the leader and so the woman's clearly always navigates the ship so if you are in the boiler room shoveling coal so to speak it means. You're not on the top neck. NGOs lost your vision. It's means you've lost clarity but here's the good news and I love the refer back to every common coaching. Someone in the problem seems overwhelming every time I've doing a strategy session and it seems like Sony Parts and pieces I just say site at myself and I

London's National Gallery plans major Artemisia Gentileschi show
"Returned to Artemis Magenta Leschi in two thousand eighteen the National Gallery in London announced that it had bought Genta Leschi self-portrait to sink Catherine of Alexandria that work has just been on a tour of unusual British venues from Glasgow Women's library to a doctor's surgery in Yorkshire a Catholic High School in Newcastle and a prison in send Surrey Tori is now back at the National Gallery ahead of a survey of gentlest work that opens at the Gallery in twenty twenty in January nineteen. I was joined by not at Travis the National Gallery's curator of later Italian Spanish and French seventeenth century paintings to talk about Artemisia and that remarkable new acquisition the teacher. Can you tell me I more we're about Artemisia. Gentle Leschi the woman and the artist. She's obviously a name now that many people have heard of not just people sort of in the art world or interested in art and I'd I'd say that's quite a recent occurrence <hes>. She was really sort of rediscovered in a way <hes> in the nineteen seventies. She featured an exhibition in L._A.. On women artists artists and a number of her works exhibited then and so she sort of came to the fore then and number of feminist historians focused on her and her work <hes> throughout the latter part of the twentieth century but it's only really since she started being the subject of shows monographic show in two thousand and one in New York and then more recent exhibitions that I think she really came to wider public. I think now she is not necessarily a household name but I think people have heard of her a third of her as an artist but also her life story and I think a lot of the interest around her sort of people's view of her as a kind of empowered women derives from her biography rather like carbohydrate zone biographical stories somewhat somewhat sort of overshadows the art but I think Artemis as an artist now is coming to the fore and I think that's I'm looking forward to working on this show in two hundred twenty because I think it's very much focusing on her. As a painter ops you can't ignore what was happening in her life and the big events that the that obviously influenced that's how life in Harare but it is very much artistic abilities. Can you tell us something of that biography then before we get into into the to the painting the nationals occurred. Uh ultimately has seen very much as a sort of exception. I think it's important say she was quite exceptional that she wasn't the only woman autism the seventeenth century. I mean there had been other successful artists before her. Aha but she was born in Rome to Aratu gentlest who was a well established painter in Rome and a lady prudence and Artemis mother died when she was just twelve so she was actually brought up in a male household so brutal by her father and she had three brothers she was in fact one of five to two died <hes> and the brothers and Artemis rule trained by rats here in his own workshop but it's clear that she was the one that he saw had greater talent than than the brothers <hes> and a and sort of everything changed when she was raped by Agostino. Tassie Passy was <hes> an extremely successful painter of SORTA Trompe l'oeil architecture and who was working at that time without C._E._o.. On a large project the casino limousine he was brought in to teach Artemisia Perspective and he raped her <hes> and they Taylor have sexual relations for some months and then he was brought to trial buyouts and this is very famous as perhaps the most famous episode in Artemis Life because remarkably all the trial documents actually survivor a large portion of survive so you can actually read optimizes own words in the witness box and you read the accusations against us. It's quite extraordinary to have that kind of sort of documentary evidence still survive from the seventeenth century and he's effectively found guilty of de flowering her because what what is bringing against Casey is the fact that not only did he rape his daughter but he didn't do the honorable thing and marry her afterwards and this is sort of idea the lack of honor the the so dishonor on his family. That's very much motivating the trial so he's found guilty although his punishments never enforced and Artemis married off two days as later to the brother of her defense lawyer and with him moves to Florence and obviously this episode was obviously a great tragedy in her life when she describes in in her own words is really violent attack on her. It is quite harrowing but I think if that had never happened. Her life would have been very different. She would have carried John. Working probably in her father's studio in Rome but as a result herbs sort of enforced moved Florence really was the making of her and it's incredible things that how she turned the situation around and really I mean I like to think in Florence. You really became Artemisia. She found her own sort of autistic voice and it's why she really gained independence in Florence and she's there for about seven years and then she comes back to Rome very different sort of person she's very much in demand very successful and we know this from letters says from her husband that survived saying you know they've got cardinals and princes around the house all the time. She after music doesn't even have time to eat. She's so busy and then in sixteen thirty she settles also in Naples where she lives till the end of her life at least sort of twenty five years and runs a very successful workshop. I says you pretty much stays in Italy except for a brief trip to London in the late. Sixteenth extent thirties which in itself is quite unusual for women to be traveling internationally. Elaine indeed just one thing about the biography that makes her have a certain currency. Today is as you say in those documents around the trial. It's clear that she is being put on trial. In the trial and and in fact is is is tortured a- as as part of that process I mean laws be made of that and I think there's been a very much more measured reading of those documents in a wider sort of frame. If you like particularly particularly <hes> one social historian Elizabeth Cohen quite a lot of work on actually the documents relating to the trials of young virgins in Roman that period and it seems as a sort of standard way of leading these trials and actually it falls quite within that I wouldn't call it a pattern but within that but if you really read carefully the words mean she was tortured by using the which were these ropes tightened around her fingers while she was in the box but the judge also beforehand is it will right if we do this and it's clear if if you really read the the original Italian it is clear that it's in a way that they're asking if they can torch her to in a way prove her innocence in a sense sort of <hes> just to make sure that what she's saying is actually true and and it is while she's the torturing her with a C._B._S.. That she says you know it's true. It's true it's true. She repeats the what she says is true and so I think in a way it was sort of in supportive her innocence in this situation. I think you can already read in the language. That's used that. It's in a way away to catch tassie out right now. The the making of her in artistically say was was her moved to Florence say something about her experience there what kind coin of Education for instance did she did. She have there and will she in another painter studio straight away. No I think the really remarkable thing is that she sets up independently. She was trained in her father's studio. You know these sort of kind of family workshop tradition existed since the Renaissance and not just in Italy but it was often a father to Assan workshop so it's quite new female members of the family would be involved but as I say after means is not the first loving Fontana. Her father was very successful. So do you know in a way has sort of training. Rome wasn't unusual as perhaps be unusual because she was a woman but the whole learning from your father your trade from your father wasn't unusual the fact of her moving moving to Florence and having to set up independently is the thing that really made her. I think we have no real indication of having a student with with pupils assault. She worked effectively from her has junior. It wasn't her home. Her husband was apparently a painter but very sort of modest kind of renown. She was the very first female MEL member of the Academy in Florence. She was member from sixteen sixteen so you know she. She arrived in around sixteen thirteen within two three years. She's already really established herself. That's a really shows incredible determination but also kind of recognition of her skill and I think it's partly to do with her resilience. I think it will start to do with who she came into contact with in Florence. Not you say how education but also the circles. She moved in one of her great sort of protect us. There was Michelangelo Buonarroti younger who is the great nephew of Great Michelangelo and Artemis is only documented picture in Florence is in the ceiling of one hundred thirty still today and there she is alongside other Florentine artists of her of her time so she seems to have integrators of quite quickly and Florence <hes> and one of her close friends was Christopher. No Laurie won the greatest painters in the seventeenth century in Florence who is also godfather to her son Christopher so she clearly immediately set us you know sort of entered into autistic circles intellectual circles because she was a friend of Galileo and she worked for the MEDICI and did did she carry her Caravan Jasko style that she would have learned in Rome with her two phones or did she very much incorporate new styles and influences from her surrounding same sex. It's such a hot topic. That's so discussed because she has been called a chameleon and and I think as a result of this now many pictures get attributed to her that aren't necessarily by her because you can still use it as a dolphin well. She's communiqu. She changes all the time I think in the kind of broad sense she is quite community. She can adopt US style but it's part of her sort of business strategy. I think so you know she spent twenty five years. Working in Naples pictures look look really neapolitan but of course they would. She's been living in Naples. She's working for Nipples and patrons and I think when she moved to Florence. I think actually more than Caravaggio it is her father is rats. Here's pictures and rats. Here's handling of paint that's most of present in her mind and in the picture the the National Gary bought <hes> <hes> you know the thing that became very clear as as the pitcher was being cleaned as just that technically the way she paints the flash and so on. It's very ratu still very present in her mind. I think we'll sure influences. She's looking at these Florida artists. She's frequenting. She's using Carter analogy that you see in Florentine painting at that time she's also painting pictures for Medici tastes so that it also makes sense but when she comes back to Rome in sixteen twenty that's when Carava Chisholm off to Caravaggio is death ten years after is when cartridges is really the height of its popularity and I think there is definitely a renewed interest in this heightened naturalism start lighting and you can see that in the pictures of the sixteen twenty s can can you say more about the circumstances in which he would have created the specific work which the national now has well. The conservations been really interesting because you know I think a lot of living has been spilt on Artemis but not a huge amount of being written about her technique and I think this is actually played such an important role in actually understanding after media. It's been a lot written about you know dating's and attributions and also sort of the Mall gender-specific interpretation of her pictures in the iconography but I think had technique is absolutely fundamental understanding astounding to me. It's not Jason. Weeding out the pictures that aren't by her that are currently sort of sitting in this sort of limbo so during the conservation the National Gallery painting. We noticed similarities with obviously rats. Here's painting technique we notice differences. The pictures very closely related to two paintings one. That's in Hartford <hes> Connecticut at the Wadsworth which shows is a self portrait of her playing the lute and the other is a sin Catherine in New Jersey and the the suit of similarity between these pictures is not just sort of superficial fullness similarities but she's taken direct borrowings from one and the other. This is almost kind of amalgamation of these two other pictures which she knows sheds. It's light on her practice. You know how did she did. She transfer these designs to choose tracings. I mean we know how far the rats here uses tracings a lot <hes> did she have these three pictures which is in the studio once <hes> did the pro sort of composition evolve in the national painting. Does she know exactly what she was doing. From the very beginning I mean there are certain technical aspects of the pitcher the suggest it did evolve into Katherine. I'm perhaps didn't start its life as Catherine so I'm very interested also in how she uses her own image so the picture in halt that is clearly a self portrait very characterized face and all is a little bit idealized and I think there's been too much discussion in the post about whether picture easel isn't a self reporter. I think there's a kind of disguise self portraiture in a lot of her works where <hes> she would clear have expected people to kind of vaguely recognize her features a note. It was painting by women of a woman who looked like Artemisia but it doesn't necessarily have to be a self Putin a very literal sense. I think that's that's a really interesting aspect isn't it because how much of it is in that is almost like an advocate for for her capabilities and also for for her personality for her strength or strength of character and it's very easy easy to read biography into it isn't it because it's such a striking image and we know about this history of hers. Yes I mean I've had inquiries from the public. Since we announced the acquisition was saying you know other you know signs of torture on her fingers.

A predict returns is what's the efficiency that were capturing. And if we have that then the next step is k now, let's spend some time looking at the data and figuring out. How do we best create the how do we best catch inefficiency? How we best measure it. So we might have an efficiency related to momentum and back in the seven back in the eighties. You know, you had some papers about price momentum. And they basically said, okay. The best way to catch a price of Menem at the time is sort of a twelve month trailing risk. Chested return price return. That's your best momentum measure since then a lot of things changed. We've got a lot better. Understanding what drives momentum you know, what what are the inefficiencies recapturing with it. And a lot more ability to turn that into different kinds of signals. And today addition, we've got machine learning so we can put in all the historical prices and say, okay, machine learning algorithm. What do you think the best predictor of return is based on past price moves? And when you do that, you have to be careful because machine learning is one way to do.

"I get the numbers every month. And I know thousands and thousands of people do it, and I very much. Appreciate it. You can also follow me on Twitter. It's at Jeff Wagner. Six twenty. Matter of fact, I sent out this tweet today as soon as I saw the new sheriff walkie county or L Lucas, I I have intentionally not commented on some of his higher. Here's and appointments because I think he deserves a little bit of a break, even though a number of the people that he's surrounding himself with our are drawing raising all sorts of eyebrows. From from people, it's like, really, but here's the story. I sent out a link to this standbys has it in the journal sentinel today, let me share a portion of the story with you. This is what vice writes as if he doesn't mind filling one of his top posts with a family member of one of his political allies, no matter how unusual this movie is in a short Email on Tuesday evening or an L Lucas, a new county sheriff confirmed that he is named Ted Chisholm the twenty year old son of district attorney John Chisholm as his chief of staff Chet Tet Chisholm had a prominent role on Lucas is successful campaign last year, and his father was a big supporter of the democratic sheriff Ted represents the finest. In young servant leaders will make a great addition to the sheriff's office Lucas wrote. This is a. Newly created position by the sheriff who took office last month. It represents a sharp break from previous sheriff's not just David Clarke. But other sheriffs well who typically surround themselves with law enforcement personnel. Not kid political activists through in the word kid. But the story says political activists Lucas did not say how much would be paid. But insiders estimate the salary around eighty to eighty five thousand dollars a year, which is roughly the annual pay for a new captain. All right. In another brief Email, John Chisholm said he had no involvement in the appointment, which was not announced publicly. Gee, why wouldn't they announced this publicly because it stinks to high heaven the democratic district attorney said he did not believe the hiring will create a conflict of interest between the two agencies asked whether his twenty year old son was qualified for the job his father wrote that question should be appropriately decker at a directed to the sheriff. All right. So who is twenty year old techy? Techy? Who appears in line for eighty to eighty five thousand dollar a year job created by the sheriff as the chief of stiff Ted Chisholm was listed on campaign. Staff of Lucas campaign reports and was paid four thousand dollars last year. Let's see he ended up running the campaign said one democratic insider, the democratic insider described Ted Chisholm as a courthouse rat who was very politically politically smart young, man. I think by courthouse rat they need like gym rat like hangs around the courthouse. He has been involved in several other campaigns, including one for a Ramsey county sheriff's candidate Minnesota. The insider noted the Ted Chisholm lacks a college degree. He is currently a junior at Macalester college in Saint Paul majoring in religious studies. That sounds like we want on the sheriff's department. I'm actively engaged in progressive, politics and criminal Justice policy. Touches them said John Chisholm was a strong supporter of Lucas that not everybody at the courthouse is to the by story is thrilled with the move a second democratic inside or accused Lucas of engaging in Chicago style politics by appointing someone barely out of his teens to a leadership position of a law enforcement agency. It's hard to say, we're Clooney is a men's and the nepotism begins at cetera et cetera. And then it goes on somebody else's for all of Lucas's complaints about David Clark's management style. He never wastes taxpayer dollars on a partisan campaign aide. Pretentious. And Peterson said he wouldn't have his new position if he had any other last name, all right. This is it's just it is a mind boggling thing now think about this here, you have the new sheriff who's coming in with this idea that well, David Clarke rate at all these problems in here, I'm going to clean this up, and we're going to get rid of cronyism, and we'll get rid of politics etcetera etcetera. So the first thing you do is in a law enforcement agency, you hire a twenty year old kid who doesn't even have a college degree to be your chief of staff a guy who I am willing to stand corrected. But I think in Wisconsin, you need to be twenty one years old to be sworn law enforcement agency agent officer. So you're bringing in somebody who couldn't even believe not even old enough to serve as a deputy sheriff. But you're going to bring him in. You're gonna pay an eighty five thousand dollars a year in tax payer dollars. Look, let's cut through this all first of all this kid wouldn't be getting this job. If he was not the son of. The district attorney John that's number one number two. He would. I mean, I don't know. And they say it's hard to stay where cronyism let's off and nepotism kicks in. I don't know if it's nepotism. I don't know if it's cronyism, but it just absolutely stinks to high heaven. It's this isn't Republican and democrat this isn't conservative. This isn't liberal. This is what could the sheriff possibly be thinking. I mean, if he wants to plan his next political campaign wherever it's going to be God blessed. No problem with that. If he wants to have a kid political adviser working for him planning, those political campaigns. God bless them. But then then you pay for it out of campaign funds. You don't take eighty or eighty five thousand dollars and bring somebody into a law enforcement situation who is purely purely completely and totally a political operative the optics. It's not just the optics that are. Bad everything is bad about this. Like, I say there's been a number of appointments. That's new sheriff is made. I think raising lots of people's eyebrows. And you do get the idea that he surrounding himself with a lot of people probably are qualified and would fall in the category of crony. But putting that aside this one has gotta be the worst twenty year old guy. Not he's still in college who studying for religion, and you're gonna put him in and give him an eighty or eighty five thousand dollars a year if the store job, it's the story is right to be your chief of staff. You would hope you would have hoped that better know, the new sheriff would have had better judgment and would have recognized that, you know, this is just there's all sorts of different people. I could choose maybe this is one where you're you know, you bring in somebody who has at least some law enforcement experience, and you work it out. I don't think you've heard the end of this again, I Dan by says the story it s online. I tweeted. It it out as well. You can follow me. But this is this is awful. It really is. And I understand Milwaukee county is a cesspool of Clooney ISM and bad decisions. And things like that. It is unfortunate that the new sheriff is decided to jump into this cesspool with both feet for everybody. Who says well, you know, we hated it with Donald Trump said clean. We got a drain the swamp. Well, apparently, the the new sheriff, he's not about draining swamp. He's about you know, just wallowing in his own cesspool twelve fifty five Jeff Wagner. UTM J.

I can do in just go out there and execute it. I think. For me. That's something. I've really tried to work on this sport is so mental. And I think you hear people say that even other forts because at any major sport at the top level, all of the athletes are the best of the best that comes to that point. You know, Beth amateurs them year after year, and there's only so much room at the top guys. So we're all really close inability in preparation and knowledge.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
