Eadweard Muybridge, the Man Who Captured Time
"Edward Mobridge was born in eighteen thirty and kingston upon teams in England. His birth name was Edward Muggeridge but as he marched through the circumstances dances life he would change his name many times. Such a thing was pretty uncommon in the eighteen hundreds but he was pretty uncommon man. His hometown town was the historical site of coronations where the early British kings were crowned and ceremony and the earliest of. These monarchs were Saxons and perhaps inspired by that the young man would change his name to Mobridge and adopt the old spelling of his first name. Edward The vowel heavy spelling E. A. D. w. e. a. a- are D-. It looks like eat weird but sounds like Edward seeking adventure. He left for America at the age of twenty two telling his grandmother that if he didn't succeed and the lofty goals he had for his own life. He'd never retired. He arrived in New York with a bunch of extra bells and his name and little else he. He worked there for a bit but was thirsty for more. So he left for California soon after it was eighteen fifty-five during the gold rush when scores of people headed west to mind for the valuable metal. He sought his fortune through other means. Though he opened a bookstore in San Francisco the city was growing in the people had money need to spend by most accounts he was mild mannered and his business was pretty successful in the bustling city in eighteen. Sixty he made plans to head back to Europe for. We're a visit and to do some business. But he missed the boat so instead he booked passage on a Coniston goggin across the American continent to head head back east and from there he would sail to his native England. Kind of still go. aggies were the common covered wagon that you see all of the images of westward travel. It was was a fateful trip and the first time that a horse would fundamentally alter his life. These wagons were pulled by horses. The one carrying Mobridge was pulled by a team of six six mustangs but somewhere in Texas the horses pulling his wagon broke loose and started off leaving the wagon cascading on a high narrow trail above Iraqi fall. The driver couldn't get control and the WAGGON tumbled loaded with passengers and their belongings thinking quickly as the accident that was unfolding. Edward tried to cut an escape hole in the wagons cover but in the commotion he was thrown from the vehicle and hit his head on a rock. During the fall he recovered from the head injury in Arkansas. For three months though he had no recollection of the accident. One of the other passengers had to tell oh him what had happened. In addition to some memory problems he now saw everything in a disorienting. Double Vision Edward also displayed definite personality. Finality changes it was a brain injury. And as you might guess these can have a great impact on a person in his case. The injuries came with aggressive episodes. Grandiose thinking and general unusual behavior the people who had known him before noticed a distinct difference in his personality. After recuperating more New York he headed back to England where he stayed for several years when he returned to America in eighteen sixty seven. He considered himself photographer having learned a lot about the new art form and he had acquired some very nice equipment which he had brought with him. It was still a developing art. In fact the I photograph in history was made in France just four years before Edward was even born. By the time he was working eighteen sixties. The technology was still very limited mid and far from the powerful cameras that we carry in our pockets every day. Edwards equipment filled an entire horse cart in addition to the new career as a photographer he also sported an enormous beard and he called himself by a host of new names including Helius. This was not not the same old Edward. His photography made an impact on the world. He had a definite fascination with stopping time. Just a few years after a man named Matthew Brady Changed America by photographing not just the people of the civil war. But the battle scenes and carnage mobridge was documenting in beautiful detail. Some of America's because most amazing and mysterious natural sites. If you've never been to Yosemite Valley you still probably heard about it's staggering beauty. This led to it being being among the first of the land to be designated as national parks but before it welcomed hordes of tourists to gaze at its beauty weighbridge made some of the first and certainly some of the best photographs of the amazing land. Some of them are so amazing. They look like epic landscape paintings soon. Everyone wanted a piece of Edward. Helius Komo Abridge the same year. He came back to America. The Secretary of State William seward negotiated a deal to buy Alaska Lasca from the Russian Empire. But for years this was called seward's icebox or seward's folly because most people thought it was a costly mistake to buy the enormous swath of northern land in an effort to convince people of its value. The government hired Mobridge to join an expedition travel with his immense. It's photo equipment and a darkroom and photograph the Land Resources and native people of the territory. They are some of the most important documents we have of that time time period still today but it was back in California that his fame truly solidified and it was largely. Thanks to a man who would give his name to Stanford University his name was Leland Stanford and he had a problem he was a robber Baron and oh this was a problem for a lot of other people. This wasn't a problem as so called robber. Baron he like several other industrialised of the late eighteen. Hundreds was rich and powerful but he had gotten that way through some pretty shady and morally questionable ways used political influence and connections to get rich not to mention taking advantage of many less fortunate people he had been the governor head of the railroad a Horse Breeder and he owned what was at the time the largest winery in the world on his gigantic estate. He raised eight hundred racehorses. Feeding these horses alone wasn't expensive task in order to do so. He also operated a a sixty acre carrot farm just for food so you may ask yourself what does a guy like this. Have to worry about Mr Muggeridge. I I have a problem. That's not my name. Mr Mobridge have rows riot again. I have gone long again call me. He Leo's Leo's that's right heels as in the ancient Greek personification of the sun being okay. Okay Helius so I have this theory and it's more than a hunch but I just can't prove it and I may or may not have bet money on it so I I need an answer. So how can he LEO's help. Well he'll ios this concerned horses. You see I believe when a horse runs at some point in its stride dried all four of its speed are above the ground so at some point the horse has touching absolutely nothing yet still moving forward but it happened so quickly that I can't be certain. Do you understand yeah. He Leo's digs that. You want me to prove it with Pictures Helius. I'd like that very much which it's going to cost you. Some money got plenty. Don't worry. Coup crackle added now it was actually a pretty common disagreement of the time and Leland with his stable full of horses and pockets. Full of cash was in a unique position to solve it he just needed. Someone like mobridge invest best craziest and most creative photographer in the public eye to solve technical issues when a horse ran. was there ever a moment when all four of its feet were off of the ground many people believed it could not possibly be true. The first tries to capture the airborne image. Each were failures. It was impossible with the cameras of the day to catch the fast horse. At just the right time the beast was just a blur so they went back to the drawing board. The project was derailed by mobridge being the defendant in a murder case which is another story entirely but once that was over they got back to work. More bridge hung white sheets up along the race track. And whiten the track itself with chalk powder this would reflect any an all light which he knew would help. The camera. Camera capture a clear image of the fast horse next. He designed a camera with quick shutter speed. It may have been the first of its kind as most cameras needed a long Exposure to whatever was being photographed people would have to sit still early photographs. So that they didn't show up as a blur that would not work with a galloping horse.
How Does Sugar Affect Your Skin?
"Today's episode is all about the way that sugar affects. She skidded yea. May I just Do you scoffed a big travel before the nice kind of gin and tonic on the go so we are so mingun. We we practice what we pray is like when we did the episode on alcohol and widely before we pissed. I we pitched put logic tone it down a well essentially we will researching something else weren't we and we came across the fact that apparently sugar is just really bad voice skin and I wasn't necessarily aware how how it would affect you. I thought it would be one of those things where it's like. It's not good fiercer. It's just inflammation Blah. Blah Blah Blah is such is so much more than that so complicated as an yeah than what you decide later. I'm not sad you explain later yeah so it's basically a process called. Glock Asian which we have briefly touched upon him in a previous this episode but we figured that we could do a full APP kind of based around that I think is quite interesting. This CPR interest in yeah definitely so we're going to run through the effects of a high sugar diet on skin what Greg Haitian isn't Halloween takes how should not change just a chemical might befall cells cells and then waste fight it so. Would you like to start aims. Gonave looks quietly into having high sugar diet. Yes so I'm just GONNA look in general roll out. How your skin reactive you do have a high sugar diet so the swan excess sugar in your bloodstream what you just said it causes glaciation and like we just mentioned y'all. You're going to go into this a little bit more later in a nutshell this is basically a natural chemical reaction which happens when the sugar levels in your bloodstream spike beyond were aw insulin can handle yeah if you are diabetic. You'll probably know Alaba this anyway or if you know somebody who's diabetic you understand what like spikes spikes insulin levels and that kind of thing means but essentially body can handle a certain amount It's a very individual thing but there's a lot of people who are diabetic after look the glycemic index of food or drink ozone and figure out whether it's going to balance them out or whether it's going to be too much for them or whether they need it's bring them back up so as a safe or a healthy blood sugar level and like we said. I'm going to speaking about that a little bit later by just thought my aunt that people might already understand John. Without mains. Yes so I'll let you go into cash. I've a few notes on a poor. Yeah we rock paper scissors all night long for the traces precision explaining it to me yes so essentially glaciation is when you say this an excessive sugar in your blood screen blitzkrieg. God help screen and you bloodstream it causes a process called which is a chemical reaction within our bodies. He's that happens when we spike are interesting can handle and essentially just creates a situation in yourselves whereby the sugar touches to the collagen Jim Protein and then it stops it from forming a strong structure so it makes you am super wrinkly basically just means means that you you collagen cells gone before us in family would and can every up we talk about how important college and it is important to keep it healthy and yeah and and something that you can do obviously take collagen supplements. We looked into that didn't win and we were like said in the last APP baffled pleasantly surprised yeah that it did actually work like said before. We've we look at loads of papers and stuff you picking off your godly twenty five pound. A nail picks up in the morning. Oh God of warnaco longest. She's right now picking off a jails and struck me to the joke on the floor screw anyway yes so the Asian takes it starts to show kind of at the age of thirty to thirty five issued a high sugar diet and essentially wants your cells under the process of Glide Keisha and there's a new I use substances created and thus of disrupts the mall so is actually something is called an age which is quite appropriate because it makes you skin look aged am boy. It's they advance graduation end products and it's just really destructive site just breaks down the last in degrades Collagen. an like we said that is walks. What's key to making sure the ISKIN supply and fences loads of things we can do to protect those proteins and having a high sugar diet is just really bad for your Well well really bad. Few Salvos obviously is not good for you and it's worth me saying now as well that when we're talking about sugary diet we're not talking about naked a bag of haribo unlock. Vena home a coke install yeah because they are sugary. Obviously they do need to avoid them book. If you have a really high diet in fruit and vegetables and obviously quite love Veg- is quite Karbi fruits quite Karbi that breaks down into sugar if they're quite sugary anyway that she natural sugars so if you sat listening thinking. Oh yes fine because I live a refined sugar free diet and that's still not really gonna do everything because chances are you probably just making up three refined sugar uh-huh by adding more fruit sugar on naturally occurring sugars and that's still a problem am now in terms of what occasion looks like you know when you see and I'm going to say an old an age on it but when you see wrinkles they all just kind of lines in one direction so they're like the not horizontal her is on the not vertical ever like dry sand in the desert yeah it it basically looks at cross hatched wrinkles said the skin isn't sagging being and it's not wrinkly. It's kind of both so it just looks like I don't know I'm looking at my knuckles right now and you see how because he's obviously they move in all different ways. You've a lot of lines running across your calls. looks like over your whole body so it's not just your face aces like your arms especially chest and like a for a woman steria and it happens quite a lot hands well especially when you have a loved. Sun Damage because that we set some damage and the free radicals caused by UV Navy be race breaks down Collagen cells as well so over time and this is why it kind of starts peak about thirty the if you'll start to notice it because it's not just the guy -cation so it'd be guy -cational sun damage it'll just be general aging anyway lack of the right vitamins any skin skin or lack of your body produce in highly acid and that kind of thing but have looked into a little bit about how you can fight guy -cation. If you would like me to go into that Kgo am so we are going to talk about expoliation in a couple of episodes time boats Ph as something I wanna go into took a poly hydroxy acid and is really gentle exfoliating or cycles of a B H h alpha or B. Two hydroxy acids. This all sounds very confusing but trust me. I WANNA try and make it simple is really good at helping fight any of the signs of aging through Keisha and but in terms of Dui -cation what you can do is you can live a low glycemic index indexed diet so you want to be in slow releasing carbohydrates like Brown bread able white bread. No sometimes we put up with care about the calories but there's just a lot more sugar in white bread than there is Brownback bread so it will stop inching levels from spike in and then go over the threshold for what your body can actually handle because that's that was soon as you go over. Dot Thousand Locations starts to happen and so there's another thing that you can take. It's called con seen if you go to the gym cry allow you take supplements for the GM a lot of people or bodybuilders or people trying to build Moso will take Elkana scene and that AH really useful for repair muscle so he's on a very cellular level e Cantate Casino L. Cost Nine. Don't I did look into the differences between the an AH couldn't find anything that really made sense to me to relate on here book of essays during the similar thing so it's helping to repair anything if you start taking cau- aw colonising then you might notice a difference in your skin but like said this takes a long time to happen so if you want into go if you're into supplements and I would suggest carnoustie because it's could risk in any way and then I read that if you take vitamins B one B six. They're really good for as as well so essentially they all worked together to get in there and breakdown that protein so you know I was talking about their advance Caucasian and yet products dot is a protein eighteen breaks the Collagen and lasted. If you'd have these vitamins might coniston and things like that it will it will go in and it will try and kill the age so a- as soon as you start to kill that then you lesson you Collagen bill back up again and beal healthy and super quickly be one vitamin B.

Am A CHICKPEA and summon Corey be six is found in polk sunflower seeds and wheat germ so no could have fun of pork are usually all. Could you make a sexually free poll. I mean to make his own sexual. Weird is a nice word that you don't you don't want pork. I'm sure you're going to gross tomorrow autozone. NFL So little store here Charlie doesn't e- Any me she panics harian aside chicken anya yeah so you still eat chicken. Can you still want yeah so she's been given up. She's giving up pork for like as long as deep without Habana. Yes so Alex's parents donahue. Don't who if ever you go round she'll make some knows yeah well. It's the it's the fact that I'll around to Alex's house in his mom is like pro- Wpro like she even has airbnb is like she runs Rhone Airbnb so much of a fantastic Hoshi as so now she knows that basically basically I just eat fish and chicken. She will make a fish dish a chicken dish and often then she'll make something different like beef or pork or Lama weather weather for everybody else so I used to love a hog roast and there's a whole grossed thing happen tomorrow and you're going to go no but the problem is I know the Alex's mom wouldn't be asked if a bit of the pork because they were my favorite however number one soon as see the pig on a stick. I'm probably going to be like a company that and number two. She always makes an effort to to not give me pork.

press than what was then we'll have to wait and see course the actual announcements in the number of women who are who actually make it to cabinet the the target is forty percent whether or not they meted is the big question been to drop in many thanks for joining us from costume good a sports update coming up shortly unused updated about twenty one minutes like you to stick around if you come now researchers have discovered a three point eight million year olds call in if you look at the first meal complete specimen of the species called Australopithecus anamensis no analysis all of the skull challenges ideas about how the fost humans evolved Dr team runs is also of the people and is also associate professor month apology at Penn state university when we spoke I asked him about this call that'll discovered the most distinctive feature I think is probably the relatively long and robust face what is typical for the Australopithecus a very large face that's pragmatic or projects I would Ford in front of the skull the brain small and it also has a distinct and robust what we call sagittal crest a sort of plate of bone that runs along the midline of the of the scholar along the brain case and I wonder if any of those features distinguish it from what was found with a gentle buzz for example an old like gorge by professor leaky in some features it's similar to the robust Australopithecus major describing and and other features it's very different so the robustus city of the face of the size of the facial features especially the cheek bones are quite similar to what we see in the robust austral pets we think that they are probably derived differently that they're probably evolved in parallel there are definitely similar in the way they appear and for those of the no all device a gorgeous actually in Tanzania now I know you're not part of the team that found it but how was it found the logical team was prospecting for parcels and they they saw the upper jaw portion of the skull eroding out of the rock and so the skull itself comes in several pieces or was found in several pieces so when I found that initial part of the of the lower faced a man spent a significant out of time surveying around the area until they found other parts of the cranium and eventually found what is has been published which is this the spectacular possible and professor hunt is highly Selassie who found it in a place called mirror Dora in the afar region office job you say the T. jumped up and down because they recognize that you found something special how big a moment would you say about walls for you pia I'm quite certain it was very exciting when these these are rare finds when you find something so complete and so interesting and unique and somehow brings into question what we've accepted those versions of what we descended from doesn't it yes it does change a few ideas of what we thought so this is the earliest species of the genus Australopithecus and what we've come to think from the the fossil record up until now is that it was essentially a linear progression from this species into the more recent species Australopithecus afarensis which is Lucy's species the fact that now this was the difference in the time between those two our struggle against well anamensis the species that this last call is a member of up until now was only found until about three point nine million where as now this pushes it down to three point eight and also but the case after rent this is a little bit younger than that so goes down close to three point three million and is initially founded around three point seven or three point you know eight or closer to three point nine million so this establishes that overlap for approximately a hundred thousand years at least based on that also record now so it changes or at least call into question some of what we thought about the relationships between those two species and the evolutionary pattern of of change between those two species at that time period three point eight million years ago the team ran let's take you to conduce in the far north of Afghanistan it's not a place we hear from often rampant in security kidnapping attacks by the Taliban militants in that region mean it's a dangerous place to visit not that the threats people face every day there have done anything to

affecting women's lives here from domestic violence to emotional problems caused by child brides and polygamous marriages when men get money they go for a second line then FAA and so on it's mainly FOR six live rather than meeting just naming conventions this is due to a woman's self esteem and tell us the sort of emotions they go through another solution well for example when the first wife hasn't got any children and the second life has many she's treated more favorably because she has given them and children and also if the first or second wife is uneducated and and it's right and the man then goes and gets an educated why again she is treated more favorably than the other two surface every day life in this city of nearly two hundred and seventy thousand people looks relatively

"Know, you can't talk to him and she's like, no, I'm a soccer player outside, you're very graceful. I found to actually be very grateful and fifth adorable. Because at that point, you know, I'm missing my kids to, like, oh, look. Okay. She is just kinda dance nine on anyway. So I, I didn't even think in advance to work with that. Now I. Liking to her little dances. But anyway, so I started doing that Wendy's doing that. And it's it, it is funny to watch back. Now, people were thinking, but whatever we were doing that. And then there was a time. Where we were like, do we need fire, so they were doing fire, but fire on our end was not going down? So what it should have been in my mind is chain. Everybody has it's exhausting rubbing on that even though gyp got it apparently in like five seconds, but we couldn't do it and I was like, yo. We'll help you let's all work together. And I didn't feel personally that they were interested in windy in your keys helping them. Do you know what I mean? There wasn't time where it was just windy, and I working on fire, and they just kind of walked away to take a break in the Mike and windy, and I were like, why can't we all this work? That was weird. So what was camp lied like fine. I guess we didn't get we didn't get fire. We didn't get shelter on the first night we were cold in. We were wet. So how about that? Okay. Was made on the show about you move the clothes from the players and, and you took them and you put them on the beach, and the other place didn't like that. Was that blown out of proportion? So. Your the thing man. It was only going to be bright and sunny for handful of hours. Right. Right. The first night. We were so cold and our stuff was still wet and maybe it is annoying for me to be like y'know like we need to you don't have your like David Wright, for instance didn't have shoes on at all. And I'm like, all I saw was sharp stuff all over the ground. And I was like you might wanna put your shoes on because I'm not trying to be a mom looking back how annoying, but I just didn't want anybody to get hurt because the challenge was coming up. So I just wanted us to be warm not exhausted. And not with cuts in abrasions every, you know what I'm saying? Like I was just I was just thinking. How can we be the best that we can be before we even hit this challenge? I didn't realize it was annoying, but they were hanging their clothes in the shade like it wasn't going to get dry. And again, not everybody wanted that but nine tension. Was there's only so many hours, it's super bright on the beach, of course offense Devon's because I do love you. But dude, gimme a freaking great man. Like your stuff was so and I heard that busybody comment that wasn't being a busy body that was me caring about you. And I know that you're may be happy in reflection on it now. And I'm not mad at you. But I just wanted us. So the stuff that was in the tree. You're saying it was not in the direct sunlight where the stuff if you moved it onto the beach, then the son was able to hit it directly. Yeah, I just wasn't going to get dry. So I was just saying it's not like I didn't tell them everybody stuffing direct sunlight shoes too. So does the, the talk of alliances start to come up at any point before the challenge? So. Yeah. So I so Wendy, and I keys. You know after Coniston, what was happening to we were kinda like, yeah, let's work together but also member when I told you some people were looking for the well in two groups went off. Yes. I was told that people wanted to get rid of the returning players like I was like that's perfect. You know, so I jumped on board with that and come to find out I was being played by Keith in the end. I even like windy night approach. David, 'cause I really like him. I love that guy. When you're like, hey, do you wanna maybe work together anyone approaching? He's like, no, no one's approached me. Whatever he was lying. I don't blame him. We approach were dogs or dogs, like I don't.

"Played this late into an NBA season in a long time. Let's make it a happy birthday for the bucks victory. Little bit of a slug on Wednesday. The bucks. Looked a little rusty. The shots were falling at least early on. But still the overall depth of this team in the way they just keep coming at the opposition. Plus the fact that such tight defense means they were able to echo to win against rhino. If you're the raptors, you gotta be thinking you know what we have played this team five times this year and they've beaten us four times. And that may have been the best shot. We can give them in game one and it wasn't enough. They held the bucks to under forty percent shooting. They control the game for about eighty percent of the time, and yet they end up losing by eight and that has to be very demoralizing for Toronto. Now they're gonna come into this game tonight knowing that they don't win tonight. They probably go win the series if they go down to they've got to win for the next five against the bucks to win the series, that's gonna be almost impossible. So we'll see a desperate team tonight every game has a different feel to it in a different story. You don't know which way it's going to go. But I think the bucks are very confident that they're the better team and the deeper team. Kind of in that same vein. Ted the raptors had to play a full seven game series against the Sixers just to get here as the series moves on in know, the games are played against the bucks. How much of a factor, do you think fatigue, specifically may play in, in the bucks reputation? It could be a factor. You look at the box from game one and the record starters played a lot of minutes. They have four guys that played forty or more minutes in a game. The bucks had one guy that played thirty seven and that was Janas. So that goes back to the fact that I think about the deeper team and the bench four Toronto is not that potent and the bus bench, as we know can be very, very good. And even with that said George hill didn't hit a shot in game one that Coniston didn't hit a shot in game one you expect those guys to play better as we go forward. So, you know the best team wins the seven game series almost always in, in the NBA playoffs. And I think the bucks. Of the better team voice of the Buxton Davis. Joining us live on WTMJ previewing tonight's game. Two bucks. Raptors at Pfizer form defense means so much to this Milwaukee Bucks basketball team so much better so fast, and it's been carrying them through the playoffs, and we always forget to sometimes great defense, begets, greed, often so much of what you do on the other end of the floor starts with a stop on the previous teams dry the Buckner at their best when around the open floor, and they can run and get transition points in a way to do that is to force turnovers. Because now you get the break the other thing that hasn't hard time, sprinting back setting up their defense Janas can be in the open floor day. They're scored himself or kick it out to shooter and as good as the bucks defense was during the regular season and it was good. I think the bucks defense right now is even better. I think they've taken another step and defense travels defense can be there every night, even when you're not shooting the ball. Well as was the case in game one where the bucks for the first time this year. Won a game when they shot below forty percent. They did it with defense in the second half. Ted bigger picture question five years ago coming off a fifteen win season. Could you have ever imagined this in your wildest imagination? You hoped it could happen. I mean when our ship came in the new ownership they had a vision for what they wanted to seem to be. But, you know you don't there's no guarantee that it's going to come together. They didn't draft Jaanus. He was already here. But you had no idea what he was going to become. And it's been a joy to watch this young man go from this gangly eighteen year old Colt that was trying to figure out how to drive and was fascinated by smoothies to this grown, man. Who now is inflicting his will on the opponent on a nightly basis. And the, the fan interest is at an all time high with more social media and more venues for your product to be seen. I think the level of interest is higher now than it wasn't two thousand one that was kind of a different era. So I think management had this plan to have a team like this. But the fact that it came together in the. First year in the new building. That's been amazing social media fans know him as NBA teddy is the voice of your Milwaukee Bucks in our birthday boy today. Ted.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. At this hour. Pakistani officials are set to return captured Indian pilot to his country, Pakistani, prime minister Imran Khan switching between English and urged to call the pilot's release. A peace gesture as a piece. For the applause. There is no surprise since the two nuclear powers had been exchanging gunfire. Joining us to discuss this is Ramesh Tekere who was assistant secretary general of the United Nations, and is now director of the center for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, which is based in Australia. Welcome to the program, sir. Thank you. Does. It look like everyone is backing away from the brink. It looks like that. And as you said to the release of the pilot seems imminent at the border in vulgar. But there is still the underlying rivalry between these two countries, which is centered at the moment on the disputed and divided territory of Kashmir this has been a sequence in which there was a terrorist attack on Indian soil than an Indian response on alleged terrorist sites inside Pakistani controlled territory, have the two sides moved any closer to resolving the underlying dispute, I know that hasn't uninfected. India has not responded to Pakistan from minister Imran Khan's, a suggestion for direct peace talks, a part of the difficulty on the engine side is really don't know who to talk to because India policy national security policy, and you could pull because we. The focus on NAMI has a veto on all that. Oh, so you're saying that if Iran Han, the prime minister of Pakistan says I want to have peace talks with India. India might say, well, you're not actually the person we need to talk to we need to talk to the top general. Well, I don't think any Indian government would have confidence that could deliver on any deal reached if it violets red lines for the army. Okay. So if just talking to each other is not a way that you could start to resolve this more than seventy year old conflict. What is the way forward? Well, they were going to have to talk at some stage. The the basic problem from India's point of view is the nature of the Pakistan state. I'm Joe has it that other countries have a state in focus on the army has a state state has a nominee in other countries and talks on the right remains a problem and complicating shoes as well. Of course, you got both countries with nuclear weapons that I- increasing numbers about both have fewer than one fifty bucks about ten more than India. Expanding into from land to sea with an air based platforms. That are disputes over territory the matches because me being divided between the two in terms of control. And of course, he has a huge problem of any number of groups as a US and NATO discolored for themselves. The long war and knock on his son and elements of diversity from the deep stage in Buxton, and that makes a very, toxic cocktail. Let's let's talk about the ingredients in that cocktail Hussein economy. The former ambassador from Pakistan to the United States on the program yesterday. And he said the US is taking a different approach here less sympathetic to Pakistan because Pakistan has allowed terror groups to operate from its soil has a different US position successfully pressured Pakistan to reconsider its connections to terror groups. Well, I think has been quite a lot but focused on has made a distinction between those groups that want to listen to the government or the military intelligence complex, and those that are still useful to Pakistan for keeping pressure Bolton Coniston and on India. And that is a problem as Hillary Clinton said when she was secretary of state if you keep snakes in your backyard. Occasionally down by you as well. So Pakistan has ironically more than I think India and Pakistan from the terrorists that have gone out of gone rogue from their point of view. Okay. So one more ingredient in the cocktail here that I want to ask about in a few seconds from what you're saying. It sounds like it's possible. There could be more flare ups because there's no immediate solution sight do both countries have their nuclear arsenals well secured and controlled to avoid some accidental or over enthusiastic nuclear war. That do but one of the fears is that the hardest groups might launch provocations precisely to get the nuclear weapons out from safe secure stories. So that they can get their hands on it or to provoke a crisis where this used and has developed tactical nuclear weapons, which would have to be deployed on the forward edge or the battlefield Ramesh tanker of the center for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Thanks for your insights. Really? Appreciate it. when a company goes, bankrupt employees, find themselves without jobs and benefits and that is hard enough. But what about people who have already retired from that company? A judge has confirmed that yet another bankrupt coal company can end health benefits for hundreds of retired miners, and their families Westmoreland is one of the largest coal companies in North America. Wyoming public radio's Cooper mckim reports two years ago, Jim bills retired. After nearly four decades at the Kim. Remind in southwestern Wyoming, he was a laborer truck driver and driller his son works there now too. He says he always counted on the strong benefits that came with the job. Now, my hair turn gray. And it was my turn collect. And they're going to pay me. Now, he says one medical emergency can wipe away his and his wife's retirement fund, and that's that's just unacceptable. It's great. It's corporate greed is what it is last October the minds owner Westmoreland coal company. Filed for bankruptcy protection. For the third time. The company had over a billion dollars in debt it blames a weak market for coal, but admits it took on way too many loans trying to expand its operations is like a blind, man. Trying to run a, you know, come on Mike Dow has with the United mine workers of America. He's upset the retirees in Appalachia and across the mountain west will also freeze pensions, adding to local anger. Dow pass points out with Moreland gave its executives millions of dollars last year. I mean, you know, the problem is is bankruptcy laws are made for corporations. They're made by rich guys in congress for rich guys that don't corporations west Marlins. Lawyer Michael Slade says the company Goshi it'd with the union in good faith. This is not the retirees fault. It is not the employee's fault. It's not the company's fault. It's just the market which is absolutely terrible in many places coal is now more expensive than. Natural gas wind or solar slates says Westmoreland worked hard to keep workers pension plans and arranged an extra year's worth of healthcare benefits. Slade says it's in everyone's interest for the company to get solvent liquidation is worse for everyone. They would lose their jobs the mind would not continue to operate. And that would cause a lot of problems yet. Again, congress is weighing whether to step in and help the miners the latest, but surely not the last casualty in an industry.

"We got Billy back on a bench. How're you doing bell? How you doing my brother? I'm great. So. I wanna talk a little bit about everything. Why don't we start with the box? They won five straight and twelve of fourteen. They just rolling over everyone. The only teams that they lost to surprisingly the wizards. And then they dropped the game that a raptors. But they basically kicked everyone else's ass over the last fourteen games played really strong. I mean, it it all begins and ends with Janas. Obviously, honest Kupu has developed a little bit of an outside shot and everybody knows is inside game tonight Asia's, but when you start to look at the rest of this team, you look at the guys that are the sporting cash now, I mean, you've got guys around him. Like, Malcolm Brogdon Bledsoe. Remember last year? There was you've already Parker in bled show. And there were some rumors about well Janas wanna play with selfish players and everybody thought well, maybe Bledsoe came into this situation wasn't putting out of the basketball and other guys hands enough. He was taking a lot of shots himself missing. Not really hot. And then all of a sudden you get rid of your party Parker Bledsoe falls right in the line. He's been a godsend. Even though Chris Middleton. It's been up and down the season been kind of a streaky shooter. They've been. Able to win without him. But I'll tell you what the move of the year, in my opinion, it's been garnering brook Lopez. I mean, the guy's got announced he took thirty one threes in tire career until he got here. Now, he's got this outside shot that's killing and their second in the league in scoring right now you look at what they're doing with rebounds per game. They're outrebounding. Everybody Thompson rebounds, their fifth and overall assists per game. Right now. Everything's flowing. Really, well, and offload three honest and one hundred percent healthy. So I mean, honestly, I think you know, I I gotta say brogden to me has taken his game this year to a different level and turn it into something special. You know, you drop fifteen and a half a night in the NBA. And you know, you're getting somewhere around four and a half boards three and a half times the guys making steals happen. He's doing a lot. And I think he's better than he was. And he's developing into something special. We had him on our show on the on Tuesday night. He said to me that the fact that he's starting to hit a shot and he's feeling comfortable offensively. Now giving him a burst defensively. It's when you hit a couple of shots. I must be honest. I mean, the only got four losses in their new arena. They feel like it's a fortress. They've got an overwhelming amount of confidence. So you get a couple of shots. You get the crowd behind you going you play better defense and all of a sudden transition basketball starts to become prevalent, and then you feed off Yaish, and what he does and the benefit is that when when when you get older he comes in Jason Kidd, instilled a lot of good fundamentals in them. But he beat them over the head with it. He was like kind of a dictator boondoggles. That comes in and says, okay, take everything learned and go have fun play basketball. Let it fly and brogden said to me the other night. He said he there's been times where he's in a corner or he's bringing the ball at the four. He's just not comfortable and booed holds are screaming, adding shoop shoop shoot D'amoto here is let it they're gonna get some t shirts made up at some point because they're just firing it up from beyond the arc, and they believe through two threes better than two and they're gonna keep doing it. And as long as they're. Hitting shots. And they keep putting it up at this kind of a rate. They're gonna win a lot of ball games. So what do you think of? You know, the guy Middleton on this team and what he's doing scoring. And then guys like as they have had as you mentioned. You know, all these guys that are that are chipping in for for Jaanus. There's so many of them that I don't think people expected, you know, put up the numbers that they have like Hanson was better before that he has now what's happened to him. Hanson. He just kind of off the map, and they really couldn't find playing time forum, and and when they finally put the deal together to push out him and delve adobe and moved them and get rid of those big contracts to give them some Catholics ability going into next season that to me, I saw John horse might have had some naked pictures of a general manager out there with a goat or something. Because you get rid of those contracts is phenomenal. And then on top of it. You got a guy like a role player, like a pack pack, Coniston Coniston comes and gives you the energy. All of a sudden he gets hurt. The next guy up is EJ Wilson. He gives you energy sterling Brown gives you energy every night at somebody else. And and fine maker for God's sakes. He's starting to come into his own. We saw him two years ago in the postseason looked really good last year. He was in the doghouse all season, Jason Kidd. Didn't let him out of it at all all of a sudden this your boot and holds our says, go shoot a little bit shoot beyond the arc. Get at twenty foot jump shot. You're gonna be good to go. Next thing. You know, he's putting it up from the outside. He's giving you boards and blocks in the inside. So right now, it seems like you got rid of your bar. You got rid of keep Jason Kidd. You got rid of that whole coaching staff. You're. Right back the energy. Remember when they went to the Eastern Conference finals years ago, they had a guy named Darvin ham Darvin ham was the energy guy. He would come in and give you a couple of just unbelievable dunks. And then a couple of just malicious definable offenses when it comes to fouls. And then he could off the court and give you the energy. He's now one of these top assistant coaches under under a boon holder. And he's a guy that's just kind of bringing that energy two pack Coniston, Tony Snell's got a a reenergized career Amazon Ilyasova. I mean, there's a lot of guys that are adding to the depth of this team. It's not just Janas anymore. Does he think they like playing verboon al-zour do they like him or do they do? They just think he's a better coach. No, they think he's a better coach, but they love it. And one of the things that I thought was interesting that was said to me yesterday was that he went right up, the honest, one of the first practices and just got in his grill and just got on him about a couple of things that he was doing wrong and said, you're not above anybody here in a few think, you are you can hit the door. And everybody looked at each other and said if he's gonna yell at you, honest like that he's gonna yell at all. Us and they respected that and since then it's been an open door policy. He talks to everybody. Like a man the very next time down the court. He's going to be the guy who put his arm around you and say, okay, let's do this. Let's do that. Let's make you better and Janas appreciated that kind of coaching where he was going to just not keep it personal. He was gonna get right? Your grill about something you were doing wrong and the next time down the floor. He's giving you a lot of praise and he's doing it to everybody. The big thing on this team right now is accountability. Not only accountability to your coach. But accountability to one another. It's just a different atmosphere in that locker room right now. So Bill Nye goes with us from the Bill Michaels, sportstalk, never again, Wisconsin. Do you think? So you've seen them pledge around a few times like against the raptors they beat them. They lost Sixers Celtics those teams, and then I would say the nets have become a player now with Dinwiddie going out that might hurt him. Obviously scores a lot of points. But do you think is you know, they're right there with the raptors one to think if they get to the play offs. They can beat those teams the raptors Sixers and Celtics because that's who they're going to have to be to get to the end. I think they can match up well with any team in the NBA right now on a seven game series the one team that scared me was Indiana. Because Indiana when they played them down there, Indiana figured out how to defend them, and nobody else has been able to mimic that now all the depots out for the season. And that that puts Indiana backup on the shelves. So I think they can go toe-to-toe with anybody the big thing for them. And this was also said to me the other night was we want the first overall see we want home court advantage drought. Because like I said ever since they moved into that new building the new facilities everything that they have there's a different energy there feels big time. It feels like it feels like you're either in Vegas New Yorker in LA and that new building it's it's amazing complex. They feel like they're big time. They feel like they're invincible there. So if they get home court advantage, I would expect them to get series wins throughout. So what was your first reaction when Packers hired leflore? Well, it depends on the rumors. You believe they hired a guy that some said was a really good coach. And other say he was about to be fired. So I I didn't know what to make of it. I I look at it this way that one of the things they did. Right. Was when they said they felt that they had their guy they called Aaron Rodgers and said, can you talk to this guy just to see if you're on the same page and Rogers like what he had to say. And when you involve not necessarily the hiring process. But when you involve a guy to say, hey, we would also like you to put your stamp on his it showed a little respect Aaron Rodgers, which is what he was wanting remember last year he was really upset. They like as quarterbacks coach, Alex, Alex van pelt, and he didn't get talked to about it. And then they stuck in with Frank sick Nettie who kinda reminds you of you know, the old Chris Farley living in a van down by the river guy. So you kinda got the sense that they went back to Erin. And they said, hey, look, we know you didn't have a great season. You were a little bit off. Everything was disjointed. We want you to be part of the process, but you're not going to be the guy doing the hiring. Just make sure you're on the same page with this guy. I like what they did. And I like the fact that he. Went out and got Nathaniel Hackett. But they kept my pet Mike Patton the defensive coordinator for this team did wonders with very little last year with all the injuries. He had. He still was eighth in the league. In sacks putting pressure on quarterbacks. In addition to that, he's a former head coach. So that's somebody that before can lean on his say, hey, can you give me a hand here? So do you think because you got this great legendary quarterback that's won one Super Bowl? And a lot of people think he should have more. And it's not him. It's the rest of the team. It's like the rest of the pieces that they put on the field with this guy have just not cut the mustard. I would I would put a lot of stock in that. Yeah. I mean, we saw the two thousand fourteen and fifteen drafts from Ted Thompson. They haven't yielded anything. You've only got three starters from the last four years worth of drafts. I mean, that's not gonna cut it, especially when you live and die by we're gonna draft and develop if you're not bringing in pro bowlers, you're nothing about an average team with a great quarterback. And he's the one that's keeping you afloat. So I would agree with that. It's the guys. Around him. But now as they start to put additional pieces around and they've got a new coaching staff, and there they've got a new voice in there. Now, it's up to him to really kind of be that leader on the field. He I think he's got a good offense. I really do. And they gotta figure out the right side of the offensive line. Brian Balogh is not getting any younger and that guard position was terrible. But they've got good young wide receivers. Devante Adam still bad ass. You got gyns runabout Allison who they really like is gonna come back next year from that injury. You gotta tight end position. You've got to kind of bolster they finally got a run game. There's no reason the offense shouldn't be pretty good next year..

And then we go into the testbed run. And we can't tell them. How went we just run all of their sequences take more pictures, and then send it back to them with all the data and say here you go. This is what it looks like they're in the blinds all is the pictures to go off of and then they can try to figure out what their next step is going to be whenever the team is working in the blind. They work during the day. We have to come in and run everything at night the spacecraft has its normal sleep wake cycles better time. So that once we're on Mars, we wanna wake up whenever earth is within our site. So that we can transmit all of our data to the Mars odyssey satellites and the Marsha Coniston's orbiter. So sometimes that's two AM. Sometimes it's four AM so space real wakeup. We'll run all of our sequences. And then we'll be. All the data up to the satellite. And then we'll go back to sleep when the team is working in the blind. We call ourselves slow testbed gremlins just because no one's seizes to stuff happens in the night and miraculously all the data's there in the mornings. So that's good for them. Not so much for my sleeping. But. Whenever engineers came to us and said, I would like to blind to the camera cover the camera with something very dark. You know? So that can't see anything. There's no light coming in. So we went in and we blended the camera, and I thought as funny we're putting an eyepatches on the Lander. I thought oh my God. It's really haven't you ever heard of that? The pirate guy willing. Most famous. Donald do anything to get you to sleep. Cheshire once. N ruled diamonds just because I'm a huge goonies fan growing up. So I asked him I the one I'd really to us, and he goes sure bets on all the test Dacian for the desperate or just one. I'd really test, and obviously they're all controlled requirements and tests that we have to perform, but it's just kind of it's nice to have some fun with it. And just I don't know full some of your childhood back into it. The testbed where the model of insight sits is called the sandbox, but it's not filled with your everyday sand. In fact, it's reminiscent of one eyed Willie's treasure somewhat really is crushed garnet. It is a precious gemstone if you ever Google raw crushed garnet. It just looks like reddish brownish gray rocks. And we use this crush Garnett. Because it's it's dust free doesn't create dust because it's so hard. We use it because it has the same kind of properties of the regulus, which is what we call. Martian, dirt or soil. You know, here we call it earth that you know, the ground is the is not only the earth, but it's called earth. Whereas on Mars, we can't just call it Mars because people get really confused. So we call it regulus and the regular has the same types of properties as other stuff here on on earth. But the closest we could get without having dirt or dust in our indoor testbed is crushed Garnett. If insight runs into any problems getting those instruments on the ground engineers can use the testbed Lander to troubleshoot once they figured out what to do in the testbed. They'll send the commands to the Lander on Mars after insights instruments placed on the ground and start operating. If no other problems arise than Marlene's work is done..

I recall and followed up with with George W Bush, although I may have my timelines, right? But it's been a long time. And he wants to make sure that that continues. Brad Kavanagh nuts by saying, you know, this this doctrine that the cook brothers have been pushing that if a corporate CEO makes decisions Dino Exxon Mobil, they decided to to to skimp on safety with the Exxon or not the Exxon Valdez with the with that oil rig in the in the in the in the Gulf of Mexico and forgetting the name of it. And and you know, from Kavanagh's point of view, the only people who should be held accountable for that. Are the guy? The guy's the what was eleven people or fifteen people who are working on the rig who died. Not the executives who made the decision to cut back on safety because they didn't intend to kill people. So that's the men's rare thing the Chevron deference he wants to do away with the Chevron difference, which says that a regulatory agency if the EPA is told clean up.

"And when you see those tapes of John McCain, you realize that the things which you disagreed with John McCain on, and I disagreed with John John McCain on relatively small. What indoors is this larger vision of service to the country of American freedom of American democracy of our responsibility in the world. We are blessed country and it is our responsibility, our duty to free peoples around the world to support them. And so while we may have small differences and they all small in comparison, that largest vision is entirely missing in our political structure now is entirely missing in the Republican party. And it has been an ordeal for many of us who have been. Fans of John McCain to see what's happened to our party. And I think it's going to take a lot of people from a lot of different places to make up and they will never make up fully for his loss. You don't Coniston. I'm sorry, go ahead, Karen. Why was just going to say, I think what Jennifer just said is so critically important in this moment in our country and our history given who is in the White House, and I've long believed that, and I think I hope that as people reflect particular Republicans reflect on the passing of John McCain mean, Donald Trump is not going to change, but Republicans and the Republican party can absolutely change. They can absolutely look at someone like John McCain and that legacy and that humanity. And again, I, there was a lot of integrated with them on, but they can change and decide that's the direction they want to take their party back in is to be more like a John McCain and less like Trump. There's this choice there, and I hope that they out people reflect on that in this moment. Indeed, and Joe Coniston your, I'm old enough to remember when Republicans incredibly denigrated Bill Clinton for choosing not for not serving in the war in Vietnam, but we've gone up come a long way toward somebody able to denigrate say that John McCain is not a war hero and still get the acclamation claim of the Republican party. That's a pretty big arc. Yes, that's a shameful thing, joy. I just want to wholeheartedly endorse what Jennifer Rubin said. I thought that was very moving and I want to add one thing that's very important about, but McCain. In the same vein, he was not just a war hero. He was a military, you know, an advocate of the military military man who understood the deepest traditions of the American military and defended them, especially in the moment when the country was violating them in in its use of torture against detainees and John McCain courageously stood up and denounced that in a tradition that dates back to George Washington and includes what Jennifer mentioned about our responsibilities to the world to stand for as an example of what's right of human rights of standing up for humanity. That was an incredible moment in his life, and he also continued to oppose Gina half spell the new CIA director, decisively. Because of that torture issue up to ever want to give you the last word and ask you. We were just in the brakes trying to all the top of our heads. Think about if that kind of Senator that kind of person, whether you disagree or with them at the time can be critical of their decisions, but that kind of stature, in terms of the United States center that style of politician going away. Do we still have that in American politics? Will I hope not is the answer the we might have a new crop of politicians come into Washington who changed things right now. It looks like it's fading when you ask John McCain, what is legacy should be? He repeatedly said he served his country. He did, and we are the better for it. And part of serving his country was never letting party or self go above country, always put his country. First, that is a noble legacy. EJ Jennifer are sticking around Joe Coniston, Karen Finney Mark up to grow. Thank you very much. Really appreciate your time. This more than you. Thank you more after the break..
