The Refugee Crisis: We Have To Do More
"Chris. Thank you so much. For coming onto this podcast. Thank you for having me. I'm so excited to learn about your work Get your perspective on some of the current issues in this country right so i feel like if we talked about the shoes. The issues will disappear somehow. And we'll also talk about your upbringing. What sort of forces you think got you where you are right now so it. It's a it's a laundry list. We'll see if we can get through at least the important bots so i will start with what did do before you were the ceo and president of russian immigrant and refugee services. And what led you to your current role. Yes so. I served in the obama administration for five years. I was a senior adviser at the state department for three and then at the white house Servings policy director to first lady. Michelle obama for two After i came out of the white house. I actually thought that i was finally going to get a little bit of a break Moment catch my breath. But i actually ran for governor of maryland in two thousand eighteen election. Okay so let's talk about your role as policy director for first lady michelle obama. What did any initiatives that. You're most proud off during your tenure there. yeah Let girls learn was the first lady and president obama's joined international initiative it was the only international initiative that michelle launch while in the white house and i was especially proud of that program because it was very personal to me. My mother came to the us as a teacher ambassador She had me when she was forty. Two she got her phd when she z. To and so girls and women's education Had always been an issue that You know my mother cared about the chain grain. Did me as her daughter The opportunity to work on global girls education around the world but also here at home in the us. was an opportunity of a lifetime Sad to think that still today we have sixty two million girls who are not getting an education in terms of a secondary education and that is due to barriers ranging from cultural ones to menstruation to economic factors and so that opportunity to launch on the initiative. Which is actually The one shift. She really is singularly focused on now in her post white house. Life i think reflects the importance of it And its legacy krishnan talk about good education. At least i think of education for goods in developing nations right. i grew up in pakistan. So that's the first thing that comes to my mind but what does lack of education or lack of access to education look like in america and what are some of the challenges that people face in the us and don't talk about as much. Yeah i mean. I think some of the communities that we spoke to. Who were you know. Domestic americans were sometimes shocked to think about how this is an issue that was at home We have thousands of girls who drop out of school. Some of them return some of them. Don't a many of the reasons we see here in the us or related to who Economics a child who i started working after school and just to help the family A single parent be able to pay rent every month. Turns out that you know. Maybe the mother ends up losing her job and so the girl has to take on a full time job You know in some cases You know this is rarer but we do still have some cases of where girls education is not valued as much as the voice and so you know. The child will initially be homeschooled You know you still have parents who are fearful of sending their girls to school But that ends up. Meaning that the standard of homeschool is not adequate. And so if we actually were to apply tests You know that are a kind of a national standard. We couldn't say that. They actually completed their secondary education. And it's sad to think that arguably the us's the leader of the free world and yet we are still not able to educate oliver girls. This is so interesting and you bring up disparity between girls and boys education which to me is a total surprise when it comes to the us. Again i think of histon right. That's my reference point. And i do understand their cultural reasons for why people in pakistan specially boo hoo economically challenged would probably prefer boys to have education because of limited resources right. But i'd never thought this was happening in the us as well. Why don't we talk about it as much. Yeah i mean you know. There are some great groups that are exclusively focused domestically like a girls inc. Their focus is particularly city centers. Because that is where we see it more but honestly you can also see it in rural areas as well but the truth is here in the us. We feel as though you know. We've solved our education issues. Even the disparity in our educational systems that applied to both girls and boys that is driven largely by how we fund school. It's driven by property taxes right and you don't wanna talk about the fact that we have stepped away from this idea of education as a civic good
Travel to Bogota, Colombia
"I would like to welcome to show a Lauren Pesky from wonder Lulu Dot com, which has way more use in. Lulu than you would expect, check the show notes for how to spell that. Lauren welcome to the show. Hi. Chris thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to be chatting with you today and were chatting about Bogota Colombia and Lauren. What is your connection to Bogut all? The Age old question I truthfully never had Columbia on my list was really on my radar but love brought me here. My boyfriend moved here five years ago, and so for the past five years I have been visiting on and off and finally kind of made the move down here this year. And you picked a good year to move internationally. I know talk about crazy timing. I finally five years in Ra do this I'm going to get the visa all of that, and then I got here in February and. March the whole country shutdown. Excellent. So we're GonNa talk about the things that you're going to be able to do win it opens backup starting to do now but why should someone go to Columbia specifically Bogota? While let's start with Columbia as a whole is one of my favorite countries I've ever been to and the reason for that many many reasons but I just love how diverse the country as from region to region. So in one country you have the Amazon rainforest, you have the Andes mountains you have desert you have the Pacific Ocean you have the Caribbean it's really just in terms of bio-diversity. It's pretty incredible how many landscapes you can see in One place and beyond that region to region the cultures are so different that people in the language event. I have a friend in get Mungo, which is another major city here who says when she talks to her family on the coast in Bonn Akhir Carthagena sometimes, she doesn't even know they're using a phrase that she's never heard before i. know that's in a lot of places that it's just it makes it a really really interesting place to visit. And what kind of tenor are going to recommend for us? So today, I'm going to be specifically talking about Bogota. I feel like Bogota is the capital city. I know a lot of people fly through here but often I feel like it's an overlooked major major city most people when they think of Columbia, Colombia's really gaining popularity in recent years. The first thing they think of Karma Hannah are medigene and so now that I live year and I've been visiting for so long feel like so many things are overlooked here. So I really kind of want to dive into that and talk about kind of what makes this place special. And we should say up front that Lauren doesn't claim to be native Spanish speaker. Hearsay medigene and you think it should be many Yien or something else. She's still knows better than I knew it. So what do in Boca? I if you don't mind just talking a little bit of language and so far from ever Oh you must be fluent you're visiting so much. But the reality is I'm not in so I kind of have a perspective on what it's like to be here in traveling around when I know very little. Of course, I've gotten better over time but still learning you can I assume you know the essentials like survey support for? That's the first phrase you learn the clerk. Learned one beer please. Exactly exactly. Go back to your your question about, but was how I always to me. It's an eclectic mix of traditional and modern Colombian culture, and I just love how you can kind of go from playing Tejo and eating a maybe another EPA bay case on the street to dancing salsa, and then the next day you're at a fine dining Peruvian fusion restaurant in high in cocktails at a jazz bar and it's Kinda got it. All excellent as long as you're going to promise to explain to me what you were just talking about with. The two things that you're eating and going to somewhere in the course of the conversation. I will. Definitely. To that. So don't don't even worry. What are we going to see in Bogota? Where are we GONNA START? Okay. So I kind of want to break this down is a massive city. It's eight million people. It's a sprawling city. There's so much to do so much to see. So I, kind of want to break it down by by neighborhood because it's so big I feel like it's less of A. Hit these top ten things? Would you see a lot of those lists just great which is fine. But a lot of those lists stay in only one neighborhood. Probably. Heard of it I'm pretty sure you've talked about it before in Candelaria in. So I kind of want to talk about each little neighborhood and kind of what each place bring. So the first place like I was saying is the most popular I would say it's the most heuristic part of the city which you know sometimes I think you hear its touristic which equals bad to some to some but to me candelaria, it's a beautiful part of the city. It's the Old City it's the cobblestone streets and the colonial Spanish architecture, and so I'm going to start there with kind of like day one, right so the reason I start. There is because there is this place in that area of the city that's in the more southern part of the city, not all the way south almost like mid south is monster at day, which is this big beautiful mountain that overlooks the entire city. It's a really great like first thing to do because you really get the lay of the land and see just how massive the city is. You can get up there three ways you can hike up, you can take the there's like a dealer kind of train that goes up and then there's the cable car and the cable car ride up if you're not afraid of heights. Is Beautiful. When you get to the top I mean like I said, you have this beautiful sprawling view of the city and just kind of a little tip even though I do recommend going early on and during the day the careful because on the weekends it is mental. I've seen lines that are probably three maybe more hours. Okay Yes I really recommend if you can go during the week. That's great and then if you kinda wanted using a little different if you go right before the sun is setting, it's like a beautiful beautiful view bogus some pretty gorgeous city sunset. So that's kind of something to keep in ninety.
The Future of Computing Might Not Be So Battery-Powered
"Batteries have become the de facto way we power our portable devices everything from our phones to our laptops to electric vehicles. But some have been turning away from batteries and moving towards something called perpetual computing machines. Instead, they operate unharvested energy from their environments. Are Columnists Christopher mims has been looking into this and he joins me now to explain Chris thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. Okay. So like we said pretty much everything uses batteries right now we've reported that demand is through the roof. So why push to move away from them? So the big push here is that computers are getting smaller they're getting more numerous and the CEO of nvidia Jensen Wong said that he believes the future of computing is a trillion devices doing a at the edge. It's basically just means a bunch of sensors with a little bit of compute attached and they're scattered throughout our environment. Our buildings are oceans are farms. In, order to make all of these, do their jobs you need power from somewhere. Right so the question becomes are we gonNA have a trillion batteries and if so who's going to change a trillion batteries once every two years whenever they run out. And so there has been this push in the really low power computing engineering world. Number one what if we could make computers so low power that they would last for long time on batteries and number two what if we could make them? So power that they don't need batteries at all because they're just harvesting energy from their environment. So obviously, you can put tiny solar panels on them. You can harvest vibrations a that directly intellectuality, and they're very basic physical principles that allow you to turn, for example, ambient heat into electricity. That's a really well known. Old Physical principle that dates back to the beginning of semiconductor even before they were used for computers. And so we are really kind of at a tipping point where you have these super tiny but powerful processors that are using on the order of maybe like five hundred, million watts of power to compete and to put that in perspective. That's half the amount of energy are sorry power that a fly uses inflate a tiny little house flyer and that so little energy that you can sort of. Soak it up from your environment literally there scientists working on harvesting this energy from dirt they call it a microbial fuel cell, two metal electrodes. You just stick it in the TURT- and literally these bacteria create tiny current across those electrodes and so where are we actually putting that sort of technology into practice as part of computing tool. So there've been some really interesting demonstrations where people harvest wireless. Energy. So. There are teams that have done things lake complete phone that has no batteries and is working just by capturing energy from a nearby radio tower and sort of bouncing the signal back. So lots of wireless energy harvesting work has been done. The latest work is that some very clever researchers out of t you delft and northwestern got together and created a Gameboy that has no batteries. and. It has solar panels on it and it's also harvesting energy from your button presses believe it or not. It's so efficient that it can run its display and it's compute and everything with just. A handful of of mill watts of power which can harvest from his environment. So as you said, the vision is that these sorts of devices eventually become ubiquitous what would that look like and what needs to happen between now and then? In order for this to become ubiquitous, there's one other really key unlocking technology that's coming. It's fascinating because this complete up ending of the way that computing has always worked. So we all know that if we restart our computer, we lose unsaved work right before the cloud existed. We all remember losing our class projects in Microsoft word documents. When somebody tripped over the power, they're working on a kind of computing, which is called intermittent computing where Ram the sort of temporary memory which requires power to store information and storage, which in the old days was like hard drive or flash drive or even going back to punch cards those types of storage and memory are exactly the same. So you create a permanent storage, it uses so little energy. You can update it like Ram, but when you switch the power off. Nothing changes. So the cool thing about inter-meeting commuting is you can be doing a calculation and you're using solar power whatever cloud goes in front of the Sun. The computer loses all power. Instant and gets power again, it just picks rate left off it's a computer you never restart and it can operate forever, which is a weird concept and you think about it it's computing is infrastructure. So people have proposed. Let's put a strain sensor a little bit of computer center inside of fresh concrete that you're going to build into a bridge, and then for as long as bridge exists, and until that sensor breaks down, which is not going you imbedded in stone more or less. It will be able to sense its environment and you can sort of Ping it with a little bit of wireless power and I'll tell you like here's how this part of the bridge is doing, and so it's this enabling of what's called perpetual computing through something called intermittent computing. Also these really low power processors and then the really kind of mind bending thing that comes next is if this becomes the norm and we know it's already possible because people are doing in the lab. Sunday the majority of computers will be these tiny perpetual computers these little tiny sensors that we just kinda dot over our environment. So. Does that mean that we're heading towards a totally battery future or are there limits to how applicable this kind of technology really could be? So. This solution definitely only works on very simple applications. You can actually do a little bit of. I once trained the network to like listen for a week word or do some very elementary processing. Out at the edges, they say edge being the opposite to the cloud, but you're not going to have a battery free phone. For example, because our phones are just way too demanding in terms of their processors and their displays and all the rest, you're not going to have a battery free laptop but some of the things that your phone has to interact with now and query those things could be battery free.
Travel to Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
"I'd like to welcome to the show, Audrey and Manlio Diamante from travels with AUDREY DOT COM and they've come to talk to us a better region of Italy you may or may not have heard of for Yuli. Venezia Giulia. Andrian manlio welcome to the show. Ain't you Chris and thank you for inviting us to be on your bucket today. Thank you Chris Thank goodness well, and we've picked a region of Italy that I couldn't have told you the name of I know where it is about. Where are we talking about? First of all, if we put this on a map Well. If we were to put it on poor looking at the most northerly and easterly region of Italy incense ranked. In the corner literally border the North would be Australia The you're on the right would be slow being young. Then we have the Adriana CCD so we're an also the region of vinet. Oh. So you're about a hundred and solid kilometers from Venice, if you were to be an Bene- some wanted to travel to live in his Julia. Along the highway that would be approximately about one hundred kilometers and. We'll get into his tryst. So that is actually, yes, that's correct Essentially up but would unit is the one that would be most typical the one that really represents reach enough. You're getting ahead of us. Before. We get there. Why are we talking about this region because I'm not going to try and say it every time we say this because you see it so much better than I do what is your connection to Fluey Valencia Julia Well. My husband is born and raised and in. So he actually also be Lionel which is a local language. I actually met my husband and he. Shot on location to Spain, and so a friend of mine asked me to stop in a visitor in Italy and when I did, I, actually met my husband for the first time in this was in ninety seven. And then he later on emigrated to Canada. Got Married. Will and why should someone go to really Well a food essential yet is one of those regions I mean most of us think that there are token room. Most. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately, the name as a reason, I'm right. I would probably say somebody if you're traveling for the first time to Italy to do the Venice. Florence, and the Rome but for anyone who's looking for a more authentic way of appreciating Italy, then you need to go into some of the regions that are less traveled and as you as one of those, and it is really in a very good location if you really think about it because. I so much to offer from the beaches by good idol. History going back to the Roman history, the lull of our history world or one history that is worse. The front was for World War One and some of the worst battles that were ever fought or along from the car so and these own so. which my husband can talk to you more about you have the Alps and will you can go skiing in the wintertime amazing wine the quiet you're y region is world famous. Now they produce some of Italy's best white wines and the photo of course is quite unique because. Latins. A mixture of different cultures the Australian. The. Italian. So it has for a traveler they can spend easily a week and this particular region. and. Enjoy it without rushing and seeing quite a bit and is not just about lying. It's about so much more and if they wanted to add a week. Of the Australia they ads Vania or they could advantage what did I do not doin? The. Bending on how they want to program their time. Excellent will in what kind of are you gonNA recommend for us. It was one week hurry and it would be centered around the fugitive and essentially in Rio. And some of the key points to keep places that I would recommend would be, of course, the as they would be the capital and then of course. We have also the cheated on the time of she that we have sunshine yearly, which is where my husband's mother comes from. And they're famous for the BUSHEL. And then of course, we do the mountain area could pop into Saudis for example, or we could go into van Saun name and Sony in. Leitch are two towns a really represent how he only that was devastating binary choice in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six in really showcases the people themselves how suffered this major earthquake? Literally As you experience that you were there, I did yesterday what about a thousand people who died back in nineteen seventy, six cents I would say a large portion of region was actually essentially destroyed in Seoul the two towns my wife is referring to there called been solely and Jim Malone and they're very they're close to each other right next to each other one of them is a UNESCO side and that's been. So it's a UNESCO side because it maintained. The original character prior to the earthquake even though it was completely built, but it's very touching in it's very characteristic of the regional freely. So we would definitely recommend it
Places to Fly Fish
"Desportivo fly-fishing has become a favorite way for many urbanites to decompress. And that's how Chris Santillo started his fifty places recreation guides. He now also writes about places to paddle bicycle golf end snowboard, but his number one passion is fly fishing Chris thanks for joining US great to be here, Rick. Thanks what is it about fly fishing that those who know it and love it or so passionate about I've thought about this a lot oftentimes when I'm out on the river and I think that people come at it from a lot of different directions I. I think there's the chance to be out in nature in a quiet and beautiful place. There's an old saying that's trout don't live in ugly places and neither do bone Fisher Tarp in Atlantic Salmon. So you're usually in pretty pristine places that can support these fish species. About especially, if you're river fishing about being in the water, I don't mean to sound cliche but there is something about the oneness of being with the river in that sense of flow I drive a lot over mountains and past beautiful rivers in Europe and the United States and I see a lot of people with hip Bhutan standing deepen in the river and there is something. Special about that I would imagine you have there is a feeling of being. In the moment and in the flow of life of the rivers as a metaphor for flow of life and time passing, and it's never the same water that you're standing in and I think there is something profound rap subliminal about that that has an appeal There is an analytic. A fly fishing I think it has appealed to people the whole idea of trying to determine what the Fisher eating at a given time, and then trying to either look in your fly box and find the the right fly that seems to match the kind of bugs at the trout might eating or I know some friends will bring a fly tying vice in some feathers and hair and hooks to the side of a stream, and if they don't have what the right bug is at the time or the right fly, they will go and tie it. Up on the spot and hope that they're going to make that match matching the hatches, the term that writer named Ernie Schreiber came up with years ago the hatch being the kind of insect that is occurring on the river at that time but just having the arsenal and matching the flame with the others that are being eaten that's probably integral to being successful fly, Fisher and very important, and you'll find some anglers that are you know better equipped than others I've been out with some friends who will have literally five hundred or a thousand flies. I usually have one or two boxes and and hope that what I have. Oh, cover things ninety percent of the time, but there's always ten percent that doesn't work and one blanket work. Great. This morning in another flight would work great in the same hole this afternoon exactly because what happens on many river systems as you will have different sorts of insects emerging coming out of river or settling down upon the river at different times of the day you might have may flies that are. Popping up from the bottom of the river as Nymphs, and then turning into adult bugs and being on the surface in the morning, and that might be a white insect, the size of your Pinky Nail, and then in the afternoon as it gets warmer, the grasshoppers might become active and the wind may be him into the river and they are green and yellow, and they're the size of your thumb. It's sort of a a battle going on what are the it is it's man versus nature. Chris and Taylor has written a dozen best selling books about outdoor adventures in his fifty places series. One of his titles collects the thoughts of Passionate Anglers Y. I, fly fish and their favorite fishing places are covered in fifty more places to fly fish before you die you'll also see Chris's byline and major sport fishing publications.
US unemployment rate falls to 8.4% even as hiring slows
"The blue numbers came out jobs numbers as we do every week, and the Jobs numbers that have come out in for August. The United States are added 1.4 million jobs in August, but it's still down 11.5 million jobs since the covert 19. Virus hit unemployment rate fell to 8.4% from 10.2 in July. It's below 10%. What does this mean? Well, let me get an expert on that. Think it not robbery to come and break it down for us every day. Every week Now. He had done it every month. Even when he was the Deputy secretary of Labor under President Obama. He's now senior fellow at the University of Virginia Millar Centre. Of course, I'm talking about Chris Loo. Chris Thank you for coming on. Always right. Tell us what up and down side of this job of figure for this week mean? Well, I think you put the right spin on it. The right take on it. The context we during the pandemic the first couple months, the pandemic has lost 22 million jobs. We've now gained back about 10.5 million jobs. So we're still 11 million in the hole. So This is an economy that slowly crawling out of a really deep hole. But I think there's a couple things that are noteworthy. One is the pace of job gains is slowing down, and I know that Hard to imagine when you're creating 1.4 million jobs, but that pace is slowing. Ah, and I think that certainly speaks to the fact that a lot of the economic relief that's been verv IDed has stopped. I think what's also concerning in all of this is that we're starting to see Lay off that we originally thought we're going to be temporary now becoming permanent. There's now 3.4 million. Not permanent layoffs on those air jobs that are never coming back, and then we could just look at that. News headlines and you see major companies that rely on you know, travel and tourism, most notably things like American Airlines, MGM resorts and track all saying they're cutting thousands of people, so there's more reason to be concerned about Maur, temporary layoffs becoming permanent. So look, anytime you create a million jobs. That's a good thing. But boy were in a really big hole and again we continue to see these disparities between ah white workers and people of color who are out of work or Men and women, So you know it's it's. It's a good report, but it's not a great report. And what? Uh what is the breakdown? Do you know in terms of the ethnic groups or racial group? So again? This is not surprising. We continue to see that The unemployment rate for white workers significantly lower It was 7.3% for white workers. 13% for black workers. Hispanics 10.5% Asians 10.7% So again, you continue to see black unemployment. You know whether times are good or times are bad being basically double what it is for whites. And I think what is concerning as well. You know, we know that when there are tough economic times low income workers, people of color all are often the ones that are released from their jobs first. They're also sometimes the people that are hired back the latest they have left in general, lower wages less saving, so the impact of this hits them more directly. And again as we look around the country we've got, you know, eviction moratoriums that are That are expired. We've got food bank lines that are getting longer and longer. So this is a tough time right now, For for people of color in this country Now there is no specific Plan laid out by this administration on how they're going to clothe that race. Gabbard? No, I mean, you know, Look, there there theory is always we're going to look at the stock market and you see the president again tweeting this week about You know numbers on Wall Street and and I think it continues to show kind of the disconnect in this administration's policies. I mean, they're the hallmark of what they can claim Credit for economically is passing. A tax cut in 2017 that essentially gave a trillion and a half dollars a tax cut. Most of that went to corporations and very wealthy people. Very little of it has come backto working class people, and they really have no specific Economic plan Right now, on the pandemic of anything you've got. People like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, who are pushing for more money, and, you know, oddly, this is the president and Senate Republicans don't want that extra money. Yeah, they passed the Heroes Act in the house. They still have passed no second stimulus bill that would help workers help unemployed people in the Senate and then went on their break like it. It doesn't matter. Yeah, no, And you know the president make it made a big show of signing these executive orders to extend unemployment benefits. But that was just a couple 100 bucks for a couple of weeks. That's really not going to make a meaningful difference is most people and left out of all of this is all of the other things that were being negotiated. Like money for state and local governments so that police and teachers and firefighters out laid off money for school so that they could put safety Hard up to allow them to reopen money for additional testing. So there was a lot of other things on the table. That kind of got derailed when the president decided to go it
Travel to Malta
"Like to welcome to the show Michelle and Nikki from CHEEKY PASSPORTS DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the island nation of Malta. Michelle Nikki. Welcome to the show. Goes I know Good Morning Chris. Thank you for having us on your podcast. Will, and what is your connection with Malta? Interests we are born and bred in Malta native of this tiny island. We travel a lot but somehow we keep relating back home. It's it has that little connection which keeps taking us back to home. Here. And if we had to put it on a map, if people don't know where we're talking about, we're just a little south of Italy and in just a little north of Africa that's correct Kris. Bang in the middle of the Mediterranean in fact, the best way to connect to the island by plane by air, there's an international airport which serves a lot of countries, and that is probably the best connection although there is a ferry to Sicily, which takes about two hours it's not a long ferry so That's the best three to connect will, why should someone go to? Malta do island is small and that has its restrictions, but it's also a nice thing to have because you can visit and do a lot of activities in shorts spend. Nowhere is more than fifteen minutes by car. Well, it could be longer with traffic, but in reality, the island is what maybe twenty seven kilometers about seventeen miles long and barely fourteen kilometers wide. So you get an idea of how time he could places and it's really easy to get around here but it's there is a lot of traffic we should say. So sometimes, it takes hours to get from as lose, but there is a little history on culture more. There are smaller villages you can visit. There are large fortified towns. Visitors usually like the historic aspect of Malta. There are some of the oldest standing Tempur in the world. It's nice. It's pleasant island. It's nice to visit over. There are the beaches there's a lot to do more despite it's size Rela Malta can be considered as a modern concrete we have all facilities one would imagine, but still some places have retained the traditional character. So it's a nice mix of modern and antique and the traditional. So you get a little bit of everything for whatever you want to do. Excellent. Well, where are we going to start if we go to visit Malta? Probably the best place to start is the capital city Valetta. various small. It's not like other capital cities. It's more like a small town. It's a fortified city. It has a lot of history of culture, the population invite as actually small on NYC other capital cities. It's more of an administrative sort of capita, but with lots of shops and lots of museums with lots of churches of which there are many more than general, and it's a very quaint capital city. So people usually like to come here, just get lost in the streets explore has maintained its its charm. It was built by the Knights of Malta and there's elmo St centuries autistic tied to that old policies are still standing there despite some damage in the wartime. There quite a lot of entertainment venues like restaurants and bars tradition or other type of cuisine you get us election of almost entity and. A. Lot of cultural activities, concerts. And other activities which center round the capital city, and it's a nice place to startle. introduction to the whole of the island probably great and let's get into a lot more detail. On that. So first of all, you said it was small and I thought well, how small is small so I ended look it up. So you're talking less than six thousand people. Yes. Okay. Small. Okay I was thinking larger than that. Really spot it's more of a town for many of us or. What they would even call that in places like China, where city is a million people and then you talked about different museums, churches, palaces. Let's go through those one at a time in terms of what you would recommend that we see. So specifically, west starting with the cheer shoes. Let's start which with the most important. Churches. There's the Cathedral of course Saint John's cathedral, which when you Google it up, you'll just see a plane facade butts wants to get inside this cathedral it. So richly decorated that it's really mesmerizing marble and at times there was gold before legend has it that Napoleon just decided to take it own way. Some nice stories they're tied to the history of the place attached to the catedral. There's also the catedral museum which is home to many artifacts, butts amongst others a painting of Agile which spent a couple of years intern here in more. On his way to Italy and who gladly left some of Hispanics. With us to enjoy

Is It Addiction? Questions to Ask Yourself
"I'm your host William Moyers and today we're talking about the essentials of addiction we know that addiction affects about one in seven Americans in this country. But of course, our guest Christianity and can tell us addiction is everybody's problem. Chris. Thanks for joining us today my pleasure, William. Thank. You. We're here at the Betty Ford. Center where you are the administrator running the show here in Rancho, Mirage California how's that been for you? I'd spend an incredible honor and a wonderful experience. Obviously, we're encountering people at a very painful intersection of their lives, but it's deeply rewarding because of what recovery offers in terms of people getting their lives back who are struggling with addiction as you just said a moment ago it's everyone's problem. It's hard these days to find someone. Who doesn't know another person impacted by this disease talk more about that addiction discriminate. Absolutely, not we know the facts people from all walks of life and we see it every day. Right? It doesn't You know `economics doesn't protect financial backing doesn't protect someone from addiction it's. Affects, people irrespective of race or ethnicity or gender The, the solutions oftentimes have not always been equally offered to jewels. I think one of the wonderful legacies of the Betty Ford Center is early on the recognition of the way this disease affects women as much as it does men. and So that's a wonderful part of the legacy because it does impact. So many different people and families and children. So it doesn't discriminate at all. Unfortunately what are the signs that somebody might be struggling with a substance use disorder? Yeah. That's a great question The most basic sign is loss of control. a substance use disorder or addiction isn't simply just the misuse of a substance that leads to harm. addiction is really about compulsive use that leads to progressive brain changes. addiction is actually a chronic but treatable medical disease that impacts the brain It involves genetics the environment, a person's life experiences, and the interactions between those areas that leads to compulsive use often also involving harmful consequences That's the more technical. Definition from the American Society of Addiction Medicine but it's fundamental. Characteristic is a loss of control and part of the person, and is that true that drug is a drug is a drug and so if you've lost control over one drug lost control over all drugs I, think that's true of addiction right? The loss of control is addiction but depending on the drugs or the type of substances you're using it can have a different impact on the individual based on their genetics and based on the drug itself. If somebody's watching this right now and feeling a little bit squirrelly because they feel like you're talking about them, what would be the signs? The symptoms? The evidence that you would recommend they look at to determine if they might have a substance use problem. So squirrelly the juice. Yeah. Perhaps, Concern Yeah another great question you. First of all, you could see you could begin to ask yourself We'll take a look at the harmful consequences of us have you attempted to control or stop your US another good sign is to think about the amount of time you spend thinking about the substance or using might say preoccupation. So to what degree do I spend a Lotta time of my day either using or thinking about using or focusing my behavior on using, and that's also Another simple way to begin to think about the potential of having a an addiction or a concern here. What about other consequences? well, there's a whole variety of consequences. One of the older definitions of of addiction as I mentioned a moment ago that's been updated recently to include the concept of it being treatable, which is really important. But one of the older definitions broke it down in terms of biological, psychological, social, and spiritual manifestations of the condition of the disease, and so we can think about how it affects our body right in my experiencing harmful consequences in terms of anxiety, the inability to sleep well Other ways that it might be impacting me physiologically psychologically how is it impacting my perception, my emotions, my experience of the world psychologically socially. That's a real good clear indication socially and behaviorally as well how's it impacting my relationships and that's another key factor. So we could go on but there's lots of different ways that addiction impacts people powerfully,

Now in K Next 10 70 salesmen, Shaw, he's in sky free, Chris. It seems like we see fires up here every year. Part of the reason why these fires were so hard to put down even when the winds are light like they are today is because the hills are so steep and fires were so effective at burning uphill, especially whether aided with the really thick brush. Which we see in the Angeles National Forest. That's what we're seeing today. So ah, Lot of spoke with the smokers kind of sitting in San Gabriel Candy, which really shows you just how light the winds are One fortunate thing for firefighters, though, is that the forest damn.

"chris thank" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"I enjoyed it, and it was good, but I did. Say you can only ask that you could only we have to be sharp. If you're in the office of the presidency, we have to be sure. Remember when Joe Biden the interview with Chris Wallace, and it was a puffball interview. He ended it by saying, Ah, thank you. Thank you, Chris or something like Grandma's from Chuck. Chuck. Thank you, Chris. Thank you. Thank you, Chuck. Chuck. That's what he said right to request some of the other. You corrected him, right? Oh, yeah, of course, he said. I'm Chris, but not Chuck Todd. But thank you. So, so The president says that Joe Biden should take this cognitive test 100% absolutely right on. They should take it that at the debate. Let's put it down that wall right, both of them, taking Ah, similar cognitive tests at the debate. Now regarding this operation a legend. This is what it sounded like, by the way at the mass shooting at the funeral, by the way, the victim the funeral was being held for a victim of a homicide. Anyway, the shooting started and then the funeral attendees started shooting back. Take a listen. So there you have it. That was it was horrible, And that's just they don't need help. It's just a Tuesday in Chicago right Tuesday in broad daylight, Chicago So the president's going to send federal agents to try to help all the victims of black. Meanwhile, what does he get for his trouble? You get Joe buying that punk calling him a flat out flat out calling the president of racist with his history of all the racial comments. We played it only I don't have time now. But you have that. And what would this Chicago Congressman Bobby Rush? This guy is actually a sitting congressman, and he sounds like somebody that Howard Stern would have on and make fun of this is him talking about the president wanting to send troops to Chicago Me when trouble urine in the June of crew for a month early. Out of the arrows and the strategies of the technicians who have plans. You know, Trump is really trying to instigate a reader wants to instigate a race. You name it they wantto have bring my so here We are. And the really Ah land window. You believe this guy's in Congress? Hey, this idiot he called Grand Wizard. This is Trump trying to help out black people from the systemic carnage that is occurring in the inner cities. It's unbelievable. Here is a witness. Actually a witness to that shooting and him and his girlfriend on federal troops. We wish it.
Building Resilience in Your Medical Staff
"Welcome back to the PODCAST Sal Marquez. Here and today. I have the privilege of hosting Chris Democ and Carlos Arce both are at the outstanding company elation. Chris is the founder and he's been interested in what drives improved human performance since his days in college, a curiosity about developmental psychology expanded into a love for organizational development and the design of technologies that improve organizational performance. He was inspired to start elation after a career the tech industry is passion. Passion for helping people through the use of innovative technologies transition into a calling to help people flourish by applying what they know from neurobiology and mindset research, seeing the transformative benefits of his approach, it's only fueled his enthusiasm, and helped the track, an extraordinary team of people who share in the mission Carlos Arce is the Organization of Development Consultant and facilitator at Elation, and he's been highly successful as a keynote speaker, workshop, presenter and consultant he works. Works directly with many of the clients and organization hired by Elation. He's a coach and teacher, whose purpose is to inspire people to be better. He continually helps leaders. Companies achieve outstanding business results while improving organizational culture and employee engagement. These are these are things that we all strive for in our businesses, and in our in our organizations and today we're going to dive into the work that they're doing at elation to help with the problem physician burnout. burnout and the feeling of lack of community, those things that are so important and primary needs in in Even you think of Maslow's hierarchy of needs they're they're getting after it in a big way and have seen a lot of success, and and I'm and I'm privileged to have both of them here with us today to talk about the work that they're doing so Carlos and Chris. Thanks so much for joining me on the podcast today. So, thanks for having a huge absolutely so before we dive into the work of Elation love to to get a feel for what inspires both of you to to work within healthcare. Well, this is Chris. I have looked at the statistics in healthcare over the last several years, and been absolutely sort of amazed at the level at which out has become an issue among physicians and other medical personnel you know studies been fairly consistent that it's around the fifty percent level of diagnosis symptoms of burnout, according to the WHO's diagnosis trim, so it is sort of a burning platform issue for healthcare in the United States If you have physicians who are performing at less than their optimum. Ability obviously impact the quality of outcomes or people, yeah, and unsolved. That's a great question. I had the privilege of actually spending thirteen years of my career in healthcare as the. Support percent at a title that some people find a little bit mystical called chief learning officer for a portion of that time where you got I got a chance to really experienced the industry on a daily basis, and to be honest with you. It was an extraordinary privilege to watch the kind of work that's happening daily by nurses and doctors, and in my time there I really got a chance to explore the cultural dynamics of howled interactions. Interactions between professionals how the interactions between administration and clinicians although kind of contributes to the general sense of the support and the affect of daily activity rate, so in my case I wasn't necessarily ride into address burnt out, but I was really focus on. How do you altima optimized performance of both individuals in the group? So I had a passion for healthcare from the very beginning when we started doing work with elation seen the results that we. We, were accomplishing private sector, a lot of different kind of exploratory technologies in the combination of exporatory and proven methodologies. That's thought had something. I think that can contribute to this to this industry that is as Chris. Put you know dealing with some pretty challenges, free dot, daunting threats that happen on a regular basis. And how do we make sure we we We give it to the folks who need it the most love asset so. So fantastic I mean. The problem is clear, and and you know we we talk about the quadruple aim that fourth one being you know clinician satisfaction, right and wellness, and so you guys are tackling it head on, if providers aren't healthy, then it's going to be even harder to provide better outcomes for patients overall, and and so let's let's dive into it, guys. What is it that elation is doing to add value to the provider ecosystem? Yeah I'll I'll take that on crystal in. If you want to chime in, feel free to. My. What we're doing is we're looking at the problem. In its most authentic form, we are addressing this as an organizational dynamic. We see that we know the pathway that clinicians have to take to become practitioners in this country is not easy. It is not for the faint of heart, so we actually often referenced the notion that we'd take some of the most resilient humans on the planet and created epidemic burnout, and so if you're honest about that. That statement and you have to acknowledge the systemic implications of that. You know what what's happening when you put those people into this workplace that over time ends up eroding this amazing competency that they bring to the table, so that's an important element because of our approach because of that focus. We see that there isn't. This isn't about fixing physicians and this isn't about this direct cause and effect relationship that will just one thing is causing. Causing this dynamic for everybody there is a local element to this that you've got to pay attention to. And then there's this combination of both the individual and the individual with Indus Group in the system, so we've taken methodologies that are helpful for individuals like executive coaching that we know works and puts people in the right spot. We've taken this approaches. We've learned for organizational development when it comes to creating workplace cultural dynamics that are that. That are healthy, and that are actually what we would call resilient, enough themselves, so this idea of organizational resilience which involves group work and group interactions between the the key players, and we have kind of combine those two ultimately influence not only the individual themselves in a way, and give them informed about what helps them, or what actually contributes or undermines their own resilience, but also best in them as catalyst for change within that
Should this cupcake baker go all-in or move on?
"This is from Houston. Texas and I've been listening to the show for about a year and a half. Now My side Hustle is baking I'm a homemaker and I specialize in custom, cakes, cupcakes and good old fashioned cookies. My question is how do you know when it's time to go on and move on? It's been a struggle for me for the last five years of trying to my baking business while working being a mom and being a way is a struggle and indicator. I have so many ideas. I want to pursue, but I don't WANNA burn out. I can't wait to hear from you. Chris, thanks so much. Thank you so much for the call. Thank you for listening in Houston Texas. We actually talked about this question on my youtube channel recently If you're not watching youtube, dot, com slash Chris Gayle Abo- one of those days. When we looked at Irish question, I am not doing daily now, but I am still doing at least weekly. I'm so go check it out. YOUTUBE DOT COM Slash Chris! Gallo all right. Here's the thing. Burn out is not necessarily an indicator that it's time to go all in, so you might actually find yourself even more stressed out if the business isn't economically viable, and now all of a sudden instead of it being a side thing, it's something that you're depending on. Remember that one of the benefits of assign also is that you can take risks without depending on the outcome to be immediately favorable like if it doesn't work right away, that's okay. You have time to tweak to adjust even to change to something totally different so I think generally speaking the time to go all in his. When your side hustle is becoming a real business, it's showing signs of growth. You can count on sustainable income from it for the next six months, and you also believe that. If you put more time and effort into it, it will do even better. So in case, it sounds like she's not sure about that I. Don't know that she has to necessarily abandoned the project, but if you are feeling burnt out about something, maybe it's good to take a pause and once again having it as a US. Also, it will take a pause because if you're depending on it. Of course then you wouldn't be able to. Whatever you WanNa make sure you avoid a situation where something that began as a fun thing where you had lots of energy behind it. You're like. Oh, this is creative. It's different. Turns into something that actually produces anxiety or stress, so if you aren't sure sometimes having more time to put into the project isn't necessarily a blessing might actually need to do something different
Protests in the Twin Cities
"Our friend Chris Eckert from five Eyewitness News is joining us on location this is the Colleen Bradley show my talk one of seven one streaming live at my talk one of seven one dot com everything entertainment calling Leinster Bradley trainer home thank Chris Eckert thank you for joining us hi Chris hi I will be already goes you know it's a tough day and I know that you know that first hand because you have been covering the riots that took place in south Minneapolis along Lake Street yeah it is it it is it's a weird dates and it's obviously a tough day I don't think anybody ever wanted to see our our city in the shape that is right now and nobody wants to look up and see the national news in the international news talking about what's happening in the Twin Cities I mean it's unbelievable and in we started probably about four thirty this morning everything along Lake Street and Hiawatha area sort of the epicenter where everything was happening it wasn't safe at that particular moment and so we kind of started in the uptown area and even to see businesses in our town get your apple store Thurston's jewelers several businesses there that have the windows knocked out I mean several miles from kind of where the main main writing was going down on and then we just kept heading east on Lake Street and it just got more and more and more unbelievable when you're talking you know I asked me at least fifty plus businesses with windows knocked out and started been taken from the inside and then and that's not even taking into account all the fires and all the buildings have burned down to its still it's just unbelievable it's heartbreaking and you know Chris I struggle because like you know I don't want to do that thing that we have a tendency to do as human beings and go all you know this is my neighborhood but but it is this is always been my backyard and one of the things that I've always loved it at lake St I have said this forever if you want to really experience the cross section of culture in the in the Twin Cities in Minneapolis specifically drive from one end of Lake Street down to the other end of Lake Street because you will see all kinds of different everything from a a mom and pop shop too you know I either are chain restaurants there are chain pharmacies but then you see the mom and pop pharmacies and you see the mom and pop restaurants and you see all the different cultures as you drive from one end to the other you get a feel for what kind of makes up the fabric of Minneapolis and so to have that be the place where this is all happening it just it's like it's rips through Minneapolis that is such a good way to put that and I've always felt that way about which street it is sold vibrant it is still alive and there is always so much going on along Lake Street and in all these businesses and think about all these businesses were already struggling right with the virus and everything that's going on and and now you're looking you see the windows knocked out and she spokes all right we're gonna have to try to start over from yelp I would choose from scratch a lot of the structures themselves are still there but the you know Chicago ridge street liquor store right there main right the middle there across from the travel market I mean they got ransacked they just did a bunch of remodeling there and they didn't even put out a lot of structural damage but the the owners there said it's going to be several days not a week before we can get real connections but this is one example of once the businesses that have been hit so Chris I have a question it's easy to see like the physical scars of this moment happening and and you know we're drawn to pictures and that's why the news is and and what you folks are doing is so important but you also have probably gotten a sense of the scars that you know our internal meaning you've had a chance to talk to some people along Lake Street as you went were there any actually I guess I don't know were you able to talk to anyone along Lake Street and if so what kind of conversations were you having yeah and I'm I'm glad you brought that up Bradley because that is what it it's easy to get distracted by seeing the the damage and destruction and move away from George Floyd staffed and move away from white people are feeling the way they're feeling we were staying out in front of Chicago lake liquors there we talked to a young man his name was what we eat vomit south Minneapolis sees you know since his family's from small yet but he's born and raised in south Minneapolis this is this is his home and we talk and probably for a good ten minutes about why he feels the way he feels and why he feels that this community city Minneapolis continues to turn a blind eye to the needs of the minority community and you know I asked him if if he felt that was justification for people to Saludos Mrs in the burn things down and he said absolutely not because you know I think that's deplorable but but people need to understand that what happened here in the last twenty four hours is something that has been bubbling under the surface for years and years and years and at times as we've seen it does it does explode and in this particular case over the last twenty four hours we've never seen anything like this absolutely I I'm wondering if you can tell us christen today now in the daylight as we've made it through what was really truly a long and difficult night I will say you know you said you were on the scene at four thirty AM that's right about when I woke up and recognized that you know that that the things that I put my head on the pillow that were happening when I put my head in the pillow were still going on and I and I and I dug deep into see kind of where we were as we woke up this morning but can you tell us now in the light of day as the day is sort of shaping up how are our community members coming out to help are there ways that people are kind of coming together on the streets to try to put some order back there are their business all individual business owners I would say probably about seven thirty in the morning when a majority of what I could tell a majority of the crowds it pretty much dispersed that's when you saw these small mom and pop shops and their friends and family gathering with brooms and and cardboard boxes to be able to gather up the pieces of glass and cart you're putting up plywood to try to protect their storefronts and that's when you really saw people yeah I saw a guy just walking around picking up garbage in the back lot who's buying his business and so that that's definitely that's definitely going on I mean it's it's it's pretty daunting thinking about the amount of of clean up it's gonna have to happen I mean if it is something I've I've I've been in the television business for twenty five years and will provide a places and seen a lot of things I I've never quite seen anything like the aftermath of of what happened and no doubt there will continue to be stories for you guys to cover you guys have been on it from the beginning and is there anything you can give us a heads up about in terms of what we should expect today I know I saw there was a press conference earlier with the mayor and city officials is there anything else we should alert our listeners to to make sure they pay special attention to KSTP well I would you say it the problem just a legit alleges a logistical standpoint from being down there I wouldn't I know that there's a lot of people's urge to go down there and take pictures and see what's left I would just try to avoid the area there are a lot of people down there who were you know down there looking at it and imposing and you've got street lights out you've got power out it's just that it it's N. and now's not a time to be some volatility there too because the the third police precinct is right there I would just I would avoid at all costs yeah I I think the next step is were waiting out here when the National Guard comes in and what happens today yeah well Chris Eckert thank you so much for joining us and giving your perspective as a person who is you know right there reporting as early as four thirty this morning and we will just encourage everybody to see two to five Eyewitness News for updates throughout the day Chris thank you so much for taking time to join us yeah I think you guys appreciate it and you know what you can do is keep talking about it there are talk about it yeah thank you you're not talking about it that's that's that's what it's about yeah I have seen you create
Advancing intelligent automation: Interview with Chris
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Malk. I'm your host Ronald smells or our guest. Today is Chris Townsend. Who's the area vice president of federal at Uri Path? Hello Chris Thank you so much for joining us on today. Good Morning. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah Welcome Chris. And thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at you. I pass hurt. Thank you I've been back for about eight months now. Joined in September of last year point prior to that I was at semantic where I loved their federal business for about four years on the cybersecurity side of things and prior to that I was at Cisco for about ten years and led their federal healthcare protocol. I'll tell you it's so refreshing. Cybersecurity is section important segment of our business. And what we do with our security you were always talking about. Haywood the bad things that could potentially happen to us in the technology we need to protect ourselves and now joining you I pass. And talking about our and the efficiencies we can gain and how we could make people's lives better by improving their day to day jobs and taking a lot of those mundane work off. Their plate has been really rewarding and very excited to be here great. We'll definitely you know it's kind of interesting. We obviously here today. We we talk a lot about television systems in a and machine learning and of course the role that automation has to play as part of that whole thing as well and it's interesting because we talk. I'll let you mentioned a little bit about cybersecurity. And that's been a hot topic for well over a decade DECA two decades of course but people didn't realize they go out cybersecurity prior to say the beginning of the two thousands. Because we didn't know didn't realize we had all these vulnerabilities in these systems. And now I think people are sort of making the same realization with intelligent systems. Like we have all these processes but like. Oh wait we can make the more intelligent. And this idea of hyper. Automation has gained popularity in recent years. And it's the the idea of combining a bunch of things together because not just about automations. Obviously more but the word hyper is all about so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with the term hyper automation? Can you explain a little bit about what it is? And what role does robotic process automation and other forms of automation. Artificial intelligence have to do with hyper automation. And of course the relationship to kind of what you're seeing and your customers absolutely and I love the parallel use the evolution of cybersecurity. Nearly two thousand. GonNa everyone was I connected to the Internet needed to protect their systems. And how that evolved to what is today and and the importance of it. I think we're really on the cusp of that right now. With artificial intelligence in our PA the evolution of how to use technology and apply if you look at the productivity of worker you know back to the industrial revolution over the last one hundred twenty years productivity is consistently increase over that time. And you know it was pretty dramatic in the beginning of the nineteen hundreds when we had assembly lines and more mechanization and an industry that really propelled that productivity when we moved into the I T H and of course introduction ubiquity ubiquity of it really accelerated the productivity of workers as. Well now we're seeing is. Productivity is increasing at a decreasing rate. That's flattening out. And the reason for that is we have all this great technology just providing a tremendous information and we're leaving it to employees now to sort through all that information aggregate collect analyze and it's really impacting our ability to be productive so the value of our PA and AI is to outsource that work were to shift that work of collecting aggregating and analyzing that data to robots to automation into A. So we're also seeing which is driving the shift to hyper automation. And the move to hyper. Automation is really putting. Rpa as the core of this evolution. And how we'RE APPROACHING AUTOMATION IN THE APPLICATION OF AI to improve productivity to offload this low value work so hyper automation in a nutshell aggravates. A lot of these technology capabilities across whether it's cloud. Hey I or PA other tools and systems to really accelerate productivity and accelerate the use of our PA. And if you look at the Gardner Studies Garces the top ten technology trends in twenty twenty. Move to hyper automation. And we're GONNA see a thirty percent. Operational cost reduction and the next two to five years as a result in sight broader mason.
The Incredible Amavi Collection Featuring Chris Cook
"Chris thank you so much for sitting down with us today to talk about this incredible collection. A LITTLE PROBLEM. Happy to do so. My first question is what is a part of this. A mob collection. What comes in the collection so our Fathers Day. Mavi collection comes with no three really unique products so we have versus. Burma the lobby touch All Hillier with Net back second is used bath bar so unlike previous years. You're doing a whole that bar with the Amami used inside and then the third part is a dot kit so toiletry bag but the thing about this bag is it's one hundred percent recycled t. from US water bottles. Wow so excited to be bringing something by mentally conscious. Tr Father's day line. Ah that sounds so amazing and having that you know recyclable that you're being back good for the environment but great for everyone who gets to how one as well so my next question would be. What was your thought behind the development of the Ahmadi Blend? Where did this come from? So the the origins of the Amami blend really were to have an opportunity for men to take part in Central L. experiences. Well I think sometimes we feel like it's a very much a woman oriented you know experience but men are also welcome in more than welcome to be included in using essential oils on from many different reasons. And so what we wanted to do was really create a blend that could really tie into men's usage so it has a lot of really cool earthy woody aromas part of it that really created this wonderful experience for the men in your life absolutely and it is such a beautiful combination of those earthy. Woody smells. It's just warm and wonderful. I love it personally. Yeah so why? Was it important for To bring this collection.

Crystal King tells us about one of history’s best-selling cookbooks
"You've just written. A book called the chefs secret about the first celebrity chef tyler male Skopje. Who who was Skopje? Skopje was a man who worked for several different cardinals and popes during the renaissance and he found fame because he wrote pretty much. What was really the essential first cookbook that modern people in kitchens and homes could look at and use as a cookbook as we understand it today and it has over a thousand recipes in it and it was published in fifteen seventy and it was one of the best selling cookbooks for the next two centuries. I wish I'd write a book. That was the best rate for the next. Two centuries won't be around Let's get to the food spices This medieval Europe spices were in vogue at the time. So what kind of spices would they use a kitchen like this? So interestingly enough sugar is the biggest thing that was involved in not necessarily on the spice side of things but over nine hundred of the recipes in the cookbook actually have sugar in them and they would put sugar on everything. Like fried eggs has orange juice and sugar on them. Did you try that? I did not try that odd. I The that is the thing I think that is the most striking of the foods at this time is that the flavor combinations are very strange to us. You describe one feast slices Parmesan Olives from Tivoli assaulted. Buffalo Tongue. Served with lemon soup of cheese and egg yolks so some of the ingredients are common. The sauce is a sauce of ground. Almonds currants hard boiled eggs chicken livers. So you're right. They they had a very different Palate than we do. They would create pies for example that would have layers of cheese and then cinnamon and then cavs eyeballs and then Just you just layer all of these strange ingredients together. They really had cavs eyeballs. Oh they used every part of the animal and In certain regions that would have been a delicacy. Actually how do you research the Sixteenth Century? What are the kinds of records? The records of what people bought for the kitchens the the market lists. What other kinds of materials? Could you get hold up to do the research? Yeah a lot of Italian history is still an Italian so a lot of what I researched was actually in the original Italian. But there's a lot of really interesting information we have They took big inventories of their kitchens of the food and the wine that went through the house and so we can see a lot from that also. There was letters that were left behind. One thing that I find really fascinating is that the the gifted food regularly Isabela de Este would send a cabbage to her brother with a recipe on how to make it for example. Not Not a very close loved brother. Yes apparently average but they cultivated. They looked at growing food and fruits and vegetables as a hobby. A pastime that they were passionate about and this was a time of exploration in the area food and so you would send food and sausages and cheeses from one place to another on a regular basis pounds and pounds of fish. Sometimes we're giving gifts Christina's you mentioned those all the time. Are they similar to what we think of? Crisanto is today in. What is a Christodoulos? Start with her pie and yes. They're very similar. Skopje has recipes for simple single cross pies as well as pies that. Have beautiful elaborate tops? Very elaborate pies in these banquets could actually have live animals in them that you would cut open and they birds would fly out for example sometimes pies medieval times. You wouldn't eat the crust because the crossed wouldn't have been palatable flower water right. It was just to hold the food and cook the food differently. Whereas in this period of time you're starting to see flaky crusts and this is where you start to see. Pumpkin and Apple Pie and quince pies and peach and Cherry and pies's we know them today. I have a little experience going back into the nineteenth century American cookbooks and it's sort of hard to translate recipes from that period to the modern times because the ingredients were different right. I mean sugar is not the same kind of sugar. We have today for example. Did you try to cook some of those Skopje recipes? And if so. Did you have problems of translating them? The recipes in Skopje. Cookbook are actually pretty straightforward I found that the majority of the ingredients could be easily sourced at least on the Internet. So did you end up with any recipes in your repertoire. Or these were all speech should stay in the sixteenth century. Oh No these recipes start to become you can see where the foundation of Italian food comes today. there's a. Pumpkin cheesecake pie across data. That I would definitely make again in super easy to make. It's something extremely delicious. Pumpkin cheesecake came from the sixteenth century sixties. No it's not actually when you read the recipe you start to make it. It's got a cream cheese which I interpreted as cream cheese It was probably something not quite the same but similar in texture record of cheese. It has The spices that we're very familiar with mostly cinnamon. The pumpkin could very well have been pumpkin from the new world at that period of time or at least a squash and it's like a Pumpkin cheesecake pie but not as fluffy as we would have in our pies today but delicious. So you get a sense you know. We always think now the twenty first century so modern people were so old fashioned hundreds of years ago but five hundred years ago if you read this book and they were quite modern. So do you get a sense that the food world has really moved on and gotten better or it's just different. I think or what's worse. Maybe it's a little bit of both. I think it's worse in some ways in the sense that we look at regional cooking and and organic cooking as a trend in some ways whereas that's what you did and Skopje took great care in the cookbook to explain the foods from different regions and he had great respect for foods in different places. He was very obsessed with seasonal ingredients and was interested in bringing in flavours from different areas whereas an Italian cooking today. Everything is very very regional if you go to Rome. You're not necessarily going to get the same food that you're going to get in Bologna or in Venice so I think that there's there was a shift in Italian cooking very definitely but I think that he he started us all out and it's different but we can learn a lot. I think by looking back at him. Chris. Thank you very much The chef secret the story of Bartolomeo Skopje. Part fiction and part history. Thank you thank
Travel to Costa Rica
"To the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting
Coronavirus 'may have already infected half of UK
"Now. Scientists at Oxford University believes that Corona virus may have already infected half of the UK's population monocle twenty four. Th Health and science correspondent Chris. Smith is still with me. Chris. What will can you tell us about what this Oxford study says? Well this is early days again. We've got to be really careful about this so they want people to go away with the idea that this is now done and dusted while okay. Everyone's already had this job done. This is another modeling study. That is proposing that actually. There's been a big peak infections already. After the disease emerged from China in November mid November we think was basically ground zero and patient. Zero Seventy two November we think then have spread rapidly across the world and possibly swept through an initial cohort of people in the UK. Perhaps in the mid to late January. And that's renders loss of these people immune already and that what we're now seeing is a second wave and one of the ideas behind. This is the people who are really well connected a networked and were perhaps travelers or had international connections or worked with people. Who did they would have been in the first wave of people who caught it and then perhaps the less well networked people who are underneath them in the system a now getting this filtering through into them. I mean it's just a proposal is just an idea and at the moment we have got no data to support this because we don't have antibody tests yet but now the government of ordered some antibody tests will actually be able to tell and this is critical because when you fight off an infection you make an antibody response which then stays in your bloodstream. Afterwards and if we go looking for those antibodies we can then say who has who hasn't become immune to the infection and that proves they must have encountered it so now is the time to do those sorts of tests and you take a representative sample of the population test. Them see if they have antibodies. And you can then extrapolate that to the whole population and based on the frequency of people who are already immune. We'll get some indication as to how likely this other proposal is Chris. Just very quickly. How can these two very different models exist on the one hand you've got the imperial college model which has influenced the government thinking and on the other hand this this new Oxford theory? What how can they both be credible? Well the both speculative they're both mathematical one assumes the imperial model that no one is immune at the start and this is a new injection of an infection into a population. That's naive to the infection and their modeling. How it's going to spread that the assumption they've made the Oxford group is saying well. Actually let's assume that there is not true and that seem that in fact this got into the population and earlier. Data has already gone through. And that's why we're seeing these two different opinions but again it comes down to testing to find out who really has had this or not not just looking for who's got it right now but looking already immune that's going to night and I think we'll get to that quite soon. It'll be very interesting if it turns out it's right. It's going to be really really interesting. Chris. Thanks very much indeed We'll have more from Chris throughout the coming days and weeks and possibly months as we try and make sense of corona virus and what it means for all of us.

"chris thank" Discussed on Hit Parade | Music History and Music Trivia
"Hey, TJ. Hey, chris. Thanks for having me on. Absolutely. Always a pleasure. I just finished listening to the last full length episode of hit parade on my way to the studio today and. One thing that really stood out to me, while I was listening was the point that you made about how difficult it is for an artist who started in a group dynamic to really break away and formulate their own successful career. And I think that's what makes the whole story about Genesis and Phil cons and Peter Gabriel, so interesting. So many ways can you talk about a few other artists, you mentioned, of course, Justin Timberlake, who broke away from an sink. And then you also mention Lionel Richie who went on to have his own very successful career. Can you tell us about a couple performers that maybe stand out for you, because they weren't able to break away? And I guess also what makes us that transition successful for some and, and for others? Why can some artists do it? And what is that special sauce that may be somebody needs? I mean, it is kind of a special sauce, and it's hard to predict sometimes, and I think there have been solo careers that have not worked out that you, you really could have sworn would have work. Out and also the ones you mentioned who were successful. Justin Timberlake, Lionel Richie, the forest solo Beatles particularly John Lennon Paul McCartney. George Harrison to had an enormous solo career. They all look inevitable in retrospect, but the fact is one little thing goes wrong. Or if the public just isn't able to change its perceptions about a performer, that's, you know, the death knell for a solo career inevitably if you're talking about a very famous would be solo artist who couldn't succeed you have to talk about Mick Jagger by the time he went solo in the nineteen eighties. He was so associated with the Rolling Stones and so tied to the chemistry in that band, which is so special, the chemistry between him and Keith Richards, Charlie. Watts they're amazing drummer that it was hard for people to pull him apart. Many people if anything regarding Jagger's solo career is a bit of a punchline now because he performed in one of the most unintentionally hilarious duets of all time. The David Bowie duet.
