Climate Change Presents Challenges for Watershed Managers
"I'm standing here with tiffany shuffler. She's the project and land manager for the mini ha ha creek watershed district. Hi tiffany paul. Thanks for having me. So tell us where we're standing today. We are standing at what we call the divide of our upper watershed in lower watershed. So were standing at the on. Top of the grays bay dam which is where lake minnetonka ends to the east and then we are at the headwaters of miniature creek so given climate change in minnesota and in your watershed which basically includes a lot of the western and southwestern twin cities what new challenges does climate change present for watershed management. Here you know as water managers were tasked with trying to Reduce flooding and reduce pollution. And that's what you're tasked with what you're giving is how much rainfall from the sky. And also you're given a landscape that developed over a century ago so a lot of these homes were developed during the dust bowl when it was the dryness of times. And now we're coming out of the wettest of times so now there's this conflict with you know homes infrastructure of Whether it's surface water groundwater flooding happening and people you know being like. I understand climate change but my basements flooding or my front yard flooding. Who's going to do something about it. What kind of extreme lake and creek flow levels have you observed in the past decade or two on the lake and the creek. You know two thousand thirteen two thousand nineteen where the wettest seven years on record so wet in fact that we had an extra year's worth of rain squeezed in there but then there's also been these drastic swings to dry and we've had them very close together so for example twenty twelve was really dry year. Last time we in in real drought and then twenty fourteen. Just two years later. We had record flooding.
A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West
"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes
Equal Too: How We Change the Law for Disabled People
"Today over one point two billion people around the world are living with a disability. We make up fifteen percent of the global population and yet despite many countries establishing laws to protect our rights. No disabled person is immune to discrimination. Last year across thirty six police forces in england and wales more than seven thousand three hundred disability hate crimes were reported but only one point six percent resulted in perpetrators being charged disability. Discrimination often called abe limb comes in many forms from not providing a wheelchair ramp or an interpreter. At a press briefing point six million spent on the new pressroom still no interpreter to more extreme breaches in human rights such as the practice of shackling or forced sterilization all around the world disabled people depend on laws to safeguard our rights in the uk. We have the equality act in the us as the ada in columbia. There's law sixteen eighteen and in australia. There's the disability discrimination act in some countries. These acts took disabled activists years of blood. Sweating tears to bring in. I highly recommend watching the oscar-nominated documentary creek camp to get an idea of how hard fought the. Ada was in the us but even when there are laws in place when researching for this podcast we came to find that more often than not it falls upon disabled people themselves to enforce those laws or in some cases outright change them
T. Rex Was a 'Foodie,' Scientists Find
"There was a paper that came out recently called complex neuro vascular system in the dentistry of tyrannosaurus and it was published in historical biology by so chiro koby and sochi tori. And it's around how t. Rex may have had a sensitive tip of its snout like that displayed. A source horny yet but the headlines were more about it being a foodie or a picky eater. Where's the display a source. One was like it was a tender lover. It it's a really interesting. The two different headline types. There's a lot of reasons. It would be useful to have a sensitive snout so to kind of summit up. I liked the way the new york times article. Put it quote. T. rex to eat blindly and basically t rex had these complex nerves and the tip of the jaw may have been sensitive and that would have helped. Tell the difference between soft tissue and other parts of the meat. It was eating so then. If it was available it could choose to eat the soft parts interesting. Which is why people were talking about being foodie. So what the others did was they. Cat scan a left mandible or job. t rex. It was an immature specimen. That was found in the hell creek formation. And they also. Cd scanned some other orna. Fisken's like triceratops montessori fuqua stores and they looked at extent crocodilians and birds and what they were doing was they were looking at the neuro vascular canal. That's this combination of where small blood vessels and nerves collagen fibers and sells stored fat. Were and in t. Rex the neuro vascular canal in the dentistry has this complex branching pattern actually similar to extend crocodiles and what they said were. Tactile foraging birds on his which are also known as ducks. Kind of interesting to think of t. Rex being similar to a duck So they assumed that the upper job t. rex had a similar
When Sea Levels Rise, Who Should Pay?
"We're beginning with a giant pile of dirt. Okay i'll go with it. i'll go with it. okay. It's not just any pile of dirt. It happens to be right outside of facebook's campus in the san francisco bay area where we're standing right. Now is the outboard levy of the facebook campus in menlo park. That's kevin murray. He works for the san francisco creek joint powers authority which is an agency that works on flood protection in the area. We're walking on top of that levee which surrounds the tech companies brightly colored buildings. So why does facebook need a levy. Well the company's headquarters is right on the shoreline of san francisco bay and over the last decade. They've built huge state of the art buildings on the waterfront. So the levy is protection from the bay. But kevin told me levy isn't exactly the right way to describe it because a levee is designed to protect people at has to meet engineering standards that ensure it holds up these don't those structures that are providing flood barrier now are not adequate and are subject to failure if we have a really big tide or a big wind event or a big storm surge so lauren did facebook know that when they built their they did and now the risk is getting even bigger because sea levels are rising in a hotter climate so the region is looking at building a bigger levee. Sixteen feet tall. It will cost more than one hundred million dollars and the federal government. Just preliminarily awarded about half that money. But that's raising questions about who should be footing. The bill for adapt into the consequences of climate change. Coastal cities are going to need billions of dollars to protect their shorelines from rising
How Many Marketing Channels Is Too Many At A Time?
"We're gonna talk about how many marketing channels is too many at a time. So it's funny. Everyone's like oh. Yeah you need omni channel. And eric and i are big on omni channel. Some people you know ask us like. Aw is it too many ongoing after all these channels on it's like nascar and the answer is it really varies. If you're established business you have tons of people. You have a big team. You ideally want to go after all of them and if you're a small business in the short run you can't go after all the channels you need to go after all the ones that are producing the best results have the potential once. You're getting enough results in revenue than you can expand it add more channels than event. You can get to all about at the beginning. Union folks on the ones that are going to drive the biggest r. y. Yeah let's just use a case study here. So let's compare neal's his social audiences versus mine right so let's start with me. I right so thinking about where. I put my focus right now in this podcast. I spent a lot of time on the siegel brain blog over the years. And you know it's a couple hundred thousand visits a month right now which is great and then the other thing i would say to is for a period of time. I focused on youtube and growing pretty well right every video. Put out relatively speaking for my channel. Maybe a couple of thousand and go to a couple of hundred thousand views right for video and that's really good for the channel size because right now my subscribers about sixty thousand or so. It's like huge rights and so at the time a couple years ago. When i focused on youtube. I was getting those at least a couple of thousand per video now when i post on youtube. I'm lucky i get a couple hundred if even breaks thousand rights. It's because i haven't put as much time to focus on it nor have i built up a really big core audience right. This podcast has night's audience. What i would say. Is you get whatever you focus on at the end of the day right so i focused on single blog for a long four or five years before it broke one hundred thousand visits and now it started to compound and so if you go back and now you think about neil where. He's been doing this for a very long time. She started with the creek sprout blog. First and then he started buildings audiences ob and then from there he built his email list up and he started diversify over to youtube and then the other channels well why he has he kind of started made one really big and then everything they kind of spread out the attention right so there's different ways of doing it but what i've said for most people starting out is which is actually this is what neil that you focus on one first and then you branch out.
Julian Sawyer on How Bitstamp Is the Original Global Crypto Exchange
"One of the beautiful things right now is that we're seeing a even as you're gonna make in the the euro version of tether you're starting to see a lot of these stable coins are starting to hit the market and various facets of the world. Do you think that we're going to see more stable coins. Kind of pop up around or do you still think that. A lot of pairs gonna ultimately still point to like a bitcoin. Our theory. I think he does a lot more that can be done in the stable coin arena. I think we are at the end of the journey. I'm and i think it goes by to. What are we trying to do with stable coins of. What are we trying to solve in financial services with this product and say You want to get paid with heidi volatile. Stop like however with a stable coin. I could be paid. I could be making payments. I pay my supply products and that becomes really interesting. Won't see those use cases for what you can. You can do as an example. We've i did. I punish shipped with kp jay which is a property company. New york by that customers were saying. Can we pay by digital assets is like yes so they work with us and so you can help. Pay your rent in new york with usc. Say all bitcoin. Whatever you want against solves problems people doing so. I think when we shouldn't be talking about this from a technology psych which is. What is the problem that we're trying to address yet. And i think when you look at some of the issues on costs timeframes in traditional financial services i'm talking remittance payments to cross-border. I'm to supply chain. Then we can really really do something. That is exciting. What i would hope we get to a place where not far away where we don't talk about. Stable coins could creek addresses. We're talking about how we're solving problems. And it's just the underlying technology that is the brought china and the interpretation in the application of that. So i think we're right at the beginning We've got a lotta potest. Hoodings really really interesting. Use cases and applications fall stable coins. And i think we're going to have a very exciting future on this.
Nurse Encourages Others To "Organize" Against Vaccine Mandates, Modern-Day Tyranny
"Want to ask your opinion. What should nurses like you do. You said that over half of the nurses in your group feel the same way that you do but you guys are all being silenced. And you're not allowed to have these opinions. What should nurses do. What is your organiz. I cannot stress this enough before. I started speaking out.

She's getting organized honored to have her join our show. You know the most important thing is that we keep highlighting voices like this. We keep platforming these people that are on the front lines that are struggling against these. Mandates are struggling against what to do when your employer tells you that you have to get the vaccine even though you're young even though you're healthy even though you don't want to even though you've made your own decision we are going to keep doing exactly this where we platform these voices and we keep giving them a place to explain their their decisions and why they have taken the position that is so unpopular why they have committed a thought crime why they have spoken out against what is basically tyranny. It's modern day tyranny. And you and i are all living through

After Fatal Floods, Germans Look at How Climate Change Contributed
"To germany now where crews are cleaning up after the worst floods the region has seen nearly six decades more than one hundred sixty people have died. The damage amounts to billions of dollars. Now germans are asking what role climate change may be playing and how to keep this from happening again. Npr's rob schmitz has been out surveying the destruction. He joins us from the flood. Region near bonn. Hey rob emyr lewis. So i know you have been out. In one of the worst hit towns. You spent yesterday talking to people there. What are they saying about how this happened. Yes spoke to several yesterday. In the town of knowing of isla people who had suffered incredible damage to their homes. Dozens of people in this town died in this disaster and the one thing everyone was talking about was how unnatural all of the seem. The rain was nothing like anyone had ever seen. Before the way the tiny creek that runs through this town the are filled up from below a foot deep to twenty five feet deep in a matter of a few hours as water rushed down into this valley as spoke to resident martin larsen about this and he thought climate change was definitely a part of this but he also listed other culprits behind the severity of the flooding. Here's what he said. This type of flooding is not normal. This type of rain is not normal. The consequences of not for the main thing is probably infrastructure. Now you've probably been building everywhere where we hear you asphalted. Everything's paved the river straight. Yeah it's not bending back and forth. It's been manipulated by man throughout the years. It's nice and and shallow and it's just cozy but when it comes high water it's a germany is europe's most populous country. It's about the size of new mexico but it has more than eighty million people in that area so its population is fairly dense and there are so many towns like the one i visited yesterday that are built along waterways that are highly engineered and urban management to prevent these extreme weather events from causing so much damage is something that german officials will likely start analyzing more closely in the aftermath of this tragedy.
Caller Details Their Experience Studying LatCRIT
"Right ahead. I'm sorry. No, and that's fine. Great. You know what's interesting here Mark is that you know they're using the radical leftists are using that same ideology. To to talk to, um In fact, the history here and what I mean by that is like, you know, they want to try to that same principle that they use Try to do that with our history here as Hispanic, you know, because of Spaniards came and you know they want to tear down the statues here. You know, just our history, right? And they the infected with the same exact concept. And and it's not even with you know the colonialism. It's the history here. It's infecting here as well. And that's what's really interesting that when you brought up Black Creek for the first time when I heard about it, I was like, Wow, That's pretty interesting because it's happening here. Right, and they're they're They're indoctrinating the young generation the young natives and Hispanics, Americans to think that you know people are racist, right or that to hate America right? Because that's what happened, and that's a part of the history. And I just I think it's unfortunate and it's it's interesting because we've got the mayor of the capital here in New Mexico and Sanofi. He's not even from here. Right, And a lot of these people are allowing these people to come in into protests and these activists To push this stuff that has nothing to do with any organic grassroots movement here, and it's pretty interesting.

"creek" Discussed on Conversations On Cub Creek
"What would be your message to. Let's talk partially about policy but also about personal Behavior. What do we need to see? Cuz ironically on one hand when we have over used it encourages problem Behavior. Yeah, but on the other side of that argument the only way in my estimation to get people to take Wilderness, seriously, as far as ethics is concerned is to involve the minute. They have to have a personal stake and they have to understand that they have to feel it if we don't get them out there or do we expect them to take care of it? Exactly. What's your message to listeners about keeping the Wilderness there for four generations ahead. Well, my harsh answer is pick up your day of trash. That's a good answer. But yeah back out your stuff. It's well it it's so simple of a way to manage and be responsible for the area and even if it means that you bring a Daypack with you so that yep. Put your trash in it. Yeah, like it's only uses don't don't leave her Mountain Dew bottle out there on the trail. Like what's the point? Yeah, it's easier said than done sometimes because when we're looking at more people using public areas and these wonderful natural resources that we have there's going to be people who are familiar with leave. No Trace principles in the ethics of being outside. And so even if it means having more trash cans at trailheads off or providing make it easier for people to do the right thing exactly providing like a morgue sacks for sign in dog poop. Right right more signage make it colorful and things like that. That'll make it attractive cuz it's not attractive to carry trash around on a trail that you've been hiking all day our recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. There was a dead A plaque up at a place that we stopped at the said like Bob was here and it was the story about someone who wrote their name and side of the building and they got like in trouble for it. So I was this plaque that's like historical marker about this guy named Bob getting in trouble for writing his name on this historic building and that not that I'm one to change my name and stuff but it caught my attention it like I read it. I spent time with it and realized. Oh, this is a great and creative way to manage this issue. Yeah, so people respect the land and the well, it's A Hard Sell to to sell to somebody that part of your personal enjoyment is your protection of somebody else's enjoyment down the road. Yeah.

"They are you might be getting people going off and expired. Yeah. It's a weird Brown. Yeah. Yeah, but it sounds in a way it's kind of good to start getting the idiotic helpful tips because it's kind of separate from that almost makes a you know, that you've been successful in changing the narrative because those are the tips are happening no matter who's in the picture. Yeah. Yeah in in terms of within our local community too long. When we know people through climbing, we know them through climbing and when recently with kovacic it down there was a like a little bit of Disconnect and we're still kind of I don't know if we want to say recovering but we're either adjusting or managing that disconnect that happened during this six months that we weren't C people regularly. Yeah. And so that's that's been a little difficult to deal with on a personal side. Cuz these are people that we used to see at least once or twice a week only went months without seeing so it's rekindling that and good I'm getting connected again and we're in a much different social atmosphere now and so those things have we've seen them come up and we're like, oh this is not the person that I thought this was or they might be saying the same thing about us. And so there's been some wedges there that we're trying to navigate lately a lot of my home. Videos online though like a lot of the climbers I talked to is online. That's great. And there's a big distinction between people who climb primarily in a gym which is great off and then people who primarily primarily climb outdoors and do you find that people that primarily climb in a gym and more oriented to like working out versus kind of the Wilderness ethic? Oh, yeah. Yeah strength building or pushing grade. So pushing the level that they're able to climb. Whereas I think of my experience where I was working on that and I was working on climbing harder and the thing with gyms is that people who set the routes change and so then setting Styles change and grades change and it was like a constant rabbit used to figure out what am I really climbing in terms of quantifying the the difficulty? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and eventually I was like, you know what I'll be there to believe you and I'll climb he's he's dead. And that's that's me and my journey now I go outdoors and I tell someone that yeah, I just climbed this route. I led my first round Outdoors. It was the simplest route in this area and their life. That is so cool. That's awesome. I'm psyched for you and there's a lot of camaraderie and Just support buildings, you know, it's just for doing the thing you get a lot of support. Yeah. Just making the effort. Yeah, I think you guys started this year. Correct me if I'm wrong it was this year. But you decided to do is 52 height challenged was that 2020? Yeah. Yeah, that's during the week before covid-19 and understanding that was beyond your control. Yeah, where are you in that process took 14 or 15? Yeah. We're in the teens and then it got hot after shut down into it. So we we were like totally going after it and then like April like yeah, like the park shut down. Yeah very much. We even tried to go to some local parks in Columbia just south of us and we went down one and it was like closed more like there's nothing on any website that this place is closed yet..

"And in addition to that. I've been learning more about health at every size. So is the idea of body neutrality. I want to be the best me in the body. I have versus a need to change it or how would you define that so it's body positivity. It's loving your body as it is and off. The people that I follow there's a lot of like gratitude for who they are and what they look like in the moment with neutrality. It's say it is what it is and I'm not going to be upset about it. But I also don't have to love everything about it. And that's okay too so I can still make the improvements. I want to make without trading in my love of who I am. So you guys have a a very successful podcast called thinking outside and Drew you have an Instagram a Drew climbs walls. Yep, It sounds like one of the things you're using both of these social media outlets for is to pitch the idea that everybody gets to access the outdoors and to be like hike calm go. Do you know get out there and do it, but I think you guys are on your thirteenth episode. What are some of the goals of your podcast cuz I know you've done off A lot of different, you know subject matter and had some different guests. Do you have an overall goal for thinking outside for people to gather from it? I like to see I like to show the fun parts of camping and this stuff. That's my favorite part of it is US kind of joking around and me like remember this experience or like I'm making memories. Yeah. I show in our experience of being a couple that does this together and we realized too that we have a story to share. And pretty multi-layered really? Yeah, I want you to find the story all that's a deep. Well, I mean you have different aspects right? You have a young married couple you have a black couple who saw themselves as never being able to access this and then they said well hell no, that's not right. We're going to do it, you know, and then you have this really awful kind of social media ambassadors for And open climbing and open Wilderness world for anybody. Yeah, pretty multi-layered to your yeah. And so it's another vehicle for us to meet.

"Looking at a will we're just going to slap this size on it. You're sizing for men is oh this 2x range is going between this many inches in this many inches or women. There's no standard. And is that that's true of of not just Wilderness attire, but the tire in general and Cassie I can wear a size twenty Jean from Old Navy but they suck their clothing up to make you feel better or down. I mean so so if you're thinking oh, I'm the size and this company because I feel good and not go try on another size twenty Jean in another company. It's going to be a completely different may not even fit so your message if an REI or or or a Lands End or a Bass Pro or any of these outdoor retailers are listening or certainly, you know, Marmot or Patagonia or Columbia, whatever the the manufacturer your message them as hey, you've got a customer base here don't assume that because we may look like we're out of shape that we're not interested in the dog. That is correct. Yeah, that's it. That's that's pretty much in my message and and let us know that you're making our products wage or put us put us in the advertisements Prana Megs Plus Sizes. I didn't know until I was looking I was like they're not going to have my size lo and behold they have a plus section. But all our advertisements is a bunch of like bath models yoga women when you think that's one of the challenges is to break that stereotype of if we look at a Wilderness wage advertisement. It's young people on a perfect day sitting around a beautiful fire wearing the plaids and the you know, and then by, looks beautiful. Yeah, so I'm not even what we know I think if we think about Wilderness and environmentalism and how liberal and open-minded and Progressive we tend to think they are one of the things that you're finding is with wage. Gear and sales, we're not as Progressive as we think. Yeah, a lot of outdoor companies have been making so much progress in terms of diversifying what they're advertising off. We're seeing people of different sexualities people of different races being promoted in their advertising. They're still stay in a term of office products sizing straight sized, right? They can go into any store and find a sizing that's going to work for them. So in the wilderness, the minority is.

"So it sounds like in a way it's off if it has brought about You know fractures our struggles within a relationship is the very least in the vehicle to move you through those. Yeah, and it's acceptance to walk again. You're up there on the rock you we gotta know that the other person has us and having faith in one another is is pretty important. Yeah, and the technical side effects of using some climbing jargon again of cleaning and anchor. So once you've gone up you're using your own gear to hold your anchor well when you get in the outdoors, you want to keep your gear he's invested money that you want to take it or leave it on the rock. Yeah, exactly. And so getting what you have off in a safe way of the process of cleaning it up is something that I really enjoy doing. And that's something that Drew gets a little overwhelmed with in those situations. So it works out pretty well way. I just think different thoughts. I have troubles with like how would you say it's are like, I don't want to say that you struggle with like knots and stuff because you figure them out. Yeah, but it's off my brain gets overwhelmed the detail of yeah. Yeah the multiple steps and I have to go in this order. Yeah, Drew tends to find a way around things. It always gets done. So you guys are pretty young team though. Yeah, we found what works best for us. And we're we're strong. It seems like the Wilderness can do one of two things who can separate people and break people up because it does take an understanding that everybody's different in their approach or it can kind of bring you together because you make this perfect team. Yeah learning process. I think right place. It's great to have a teammate and all this, you know, and we see a lot of Partnerships and climbing of different people and they're always friends. We don't see like there's some couples out.

"Ron de la Vega on cello.
"creek" Discussed on Conversations On Cub Creek
"So, do you remember that that I'd take what can you tell us about that for before It's it's a group is a kind of unusual grouping of instruments. We have a classical guitar. Cello and drums set. which is Now, arbiters now saying less the most common bandon in Nashville but. It really is not as a very unusual combination. Yeah. what what I like about that band's guitar player is he has his masters in classical guitar, but he started off at Berkeley and did a lot of jazz and came steep from rock and roll early on. So he's got a a very broad picture of music. He's able to put a lot of things together and stylistically stay true to them. The drummer. I've played a gigs with him before I've done Jazz gigs with him before he is he's he's very studied was with how he plays drums. He's very disciplined in fact he has. His doctorate. In composition, he's also composer. This is a smart band. It's. You would think that I'm in it. Might change things. And I'm bringing the cello ended up that I'm doing melodic, and then I have to go to the base poor and that's what's kind of interesting renewal combination because it guitarist and I when I go to the melody, he's got to cover the the the base line as much as he can. So we we have to, we have to craft the music. So it it can flow from each person each person everybody in this band has to to. They've got a job they have to perform if one person doesn't make it. It falls far as part it falls apart. That's. Kind of fun to be in though because it's you don't feel. Even if you're not doing the Solo, you're not a backup player because of one person's off. Whole thing crashes. On all three of us is to fool shrill. All right. So Ron, you've got cello with Ya which is great We're going to hear another song by George and Ira Gershwin I think Howard Dietz was in on this song as well and correct me if I'm wrong. But I, believe it was first song in the musical. Okay. And not. Okay. But okay as in Katherine by Gertrude, Lawrence but who really made the song famous I don't really know that because I don't know Gertrude Lawrence. But I, know there are a lot of people that sung the song who are some of them that were the most famous you think. Sarah of organsied serve on. Ladders Gladys to this. That's probably A more famous yeah. Well. We've got Enrico Bony on piano and.

"And starting in the mid sixties, he traveled the World Playing Blues and Jazz Clubs and festivals. In Rica was taken under wing by the famous American jazz pianist, Hampton Hawes, becoming fast friends and sharing many musical experiences again. He's opened for miles. Davis and was probably the last piano player to play with the legendary basis Jaakko stories. Ron De la Vega born to a Cuban father and an American mother from Alabama has played cello and bass and bands and orchestras like Dave Brubeck then he goodman and Mannheim steamroller, he's played live and recorded with tons of artists from Los Angeles to Nashville including the crickets, Jerry Lee Lewis Albert, Lee Eddie, Van Halen Waylon, Jennings Jerry Reed, Brenda Lee, and Nancy Griffith's blue. Moon Orchestra. I'M GONNA stop right there because if I read his complete list, we'd run out of time to talk. I promise you that I did my best to make this episode, a single our, but I failed miserably. So once again, I have separated this episode into our parts. I had to master musicians hanging out talking about their extraordinary lives and jamming again. I didn't want the night to end and you won't either. So. Let's get the conversation started. Oh man that is sweet. Well welcome. My friends Ron de la Vega and in riquet Bony it is not easy these days in particular to get virtuosic musicians in one room hard to do that in general. But in these days of quarantine, it's even harder but we have pulled it off cannot wait talk about your y and Cuba and all that's influenced you both Ron, you got the upright base and Enrica you're already behind the key. So We start this off with a song. This first song was written by George and IRA. Gershwin I think in Nineteen Twenty eight and I sung think correct me if I'm wrong in nineteen thirty Broadway.

"Argument of teaching your kid to drive and what you have to say as a black dad versus the white to add how teach children because we know to some degree as adults we have created the world it is what it is. There are changes to be made, but really belongs to the next generation of voters coming up and we need them to vote with racial sensitivity injustice in mind that needs to be one of the things along with healthcare and. Draw. That needs that they need to be aware of how do we imbuing young people? The concept that race racial divide is there and then it matters I think start move. Disney. Personally. I'll start out just with everybody's equal. You know it just sets the tone for whatever else. Just everybody's equal. You don't judge people based off of how tall they are. They are any you know everybody will what color they are running off of that seven concerts of the day you know how? If you go on the Internet you. Google. WHATEV-. sunflowers. Obviously disproportionately more especially among. Kids, pictures. White kids faces. And there was A. Reason forget the name of wish I knew the name of there was a woman who started a internet startup that's kind of like A. Free picture like if you're a filmmaker or you need to make a presentation you, you go out and grab a picture. She is purposely putting together a website for free pictures that include. Right. One of the reasons I'm doing that is that I want the next generation of kids to be able to Google subject and see kids that look like that powerful. Those changes have to happen I mean, yeah. Yeah, and and and having that conversation would your kids any young kid? I think the biggest thing is Not to be the TALKER and and and really be the listening to the kid and because you know they may be experiencing totally different like so just be open on his dialect but also had a compassionate note that I it I got two years for reason. So right now I'm gonNA be active listener. I'M GONNA listen to this kid and see what struggles. They have what questions they have not dictate the conversation. Let them know ahead of time you know like everybody's equal and going to. Your experiences of Kinda preach that. Mantra. From Day One and then. Come back I guess in just like what experiences have. kind of stuff and just kind of. Play it out from there and just having a conversation at dinner or having dinner with another race inviting black people over just the conversation as well. I think the biggest disturbing thing is when you do have that conversation and that you have it so often, but black people aren't involved in it. Are you gonNA talk about my race without having me around? You know just like an invite the kids over like you were saying earlier with you're having dinner with your teammates. Doing, things of that nature outreach in I mean intermingling in having a conversation you you can't just have that the black conversation without black being involved. Tough Founder and CEO of the color of music a very cool five. Oh, one, C. Three and. Your mantras teaching youth value of life through the arts. So this is a good question for you. How do we imbue young people? With. An active understanding of the racial divide and what to do about it. Well, yes. it was a program started warner brothers records years ago at Warner Brothers records was the only record accompanying. On these zero in Nashville period who would honor black history week. Nicola Music was the last program we had there at the. At the label and it was to. Bring, people. Together black and white especially on the umbrella music you know that's basically the the field that I work in and I worked with the Country Music Foundation as well black and white key it to teach them music or songwriting and and stuff like that and music is a powerful force. It brings people together. A lot of conversations that we're having a proper would not be having except for the the slaves dancing in the field and thing, and it really impressed for slave master and he wanted to be off of that. And and so therefore, through music, we are able to communicate and everybody has pretty much come together in. That arena wasn't empowering use write music is and so teaching kids the. History of the Civil Rights, movement and teaching kids about about the effects now and doing it using music as a vehicle. For. Right. And I think like your. What's your name? Again he had said earlier about pity What we need to do have you asked the question. Where we feel community. As a people and that's the one thing education educating our kids because like I say a lot of young black here today they may have been faced with it every day but they didn't know what because they didn't know anything about this subject. They didn't know anything about racing my grandkids like what really and now and now that they found out that this is really this has happened in. The US today? You know they kind of life a little different than the different a little bit more aware third. A lot of young kids will never had experience or had to face racism. Yes, you have. Just one overt, right. Right. In moving towards A. Up I've got a few questions and one is what makes especially with the conversation pad tonight. A conversation about race in the racial divide work or not work right because we all I'm sure have been in a conversation or two about this subject matter and sometimes you walk away going man that was great and other times you walk away going I don't know about a world. What is isn't about a conversation about race that makes it work when both parties are listening when I say on both parties listening like 'cause I've had friends come out and say, what do you think about the protests in some nick session I have my rebuttal and then they just like well, I just don't agree with it and I'm like well, I can't talk to you you. Incompetent you. I don't agree with it. They should do something different. You know what a protest is the voice of unheard. It's the I'm tired of being battered. I'm tired of my raises just being disenfranchised marginalized to that degree. So a protest this is supposed to make you feel uncomfortable wiles would they do? When they walk over the cell over the Edmund, a pet is. You know they. They knew there was gonna be uncomfortable. They knew that something on the side of that, which is gonNA be impactful in. Conversations that are uncomfortable. Should be afraid of afraid of. Just because you don't agree with what's going on. Well, there's a difference between right listening and waiting to talk. Listen and and then then that then go from there this listen just listen because sometimes when you listen the answer or rebuttal that you were getting ready to give. Changes. But.

"I'm not saying look down on me and like, oh I'm sorry and just acknowledging there's no that yes everything's equal where everything we can all have the same opportunities to an extent but some people are just born or having advantage and a head start. In life and this is a real thing. I'm not making an excuse me. Yes I can do achieve everything into my wheel however, the hurdles I may have in my lane. You may not have in your lane if I'm starting from hurdles hurdles behind you you already five hurdles ahead. Yes. I can catch up however you can't sit there and say that. But. It's still equal. We can all just you know all get to finish line same time. Your point is that is not that inequality of access is not just of the air of civil rights you're experiencing that has a twenty seven year old young men now. that. Kind of two sides to think it's a memo social media where is it's a race and it's gotta finish line and it's got the white. The white man that's just on a paved lot and then it's got a black person on got bushes and stick bushes and cactuses and Hampson bumps. Go to is the same distance, but you know they got these other obstacles that they have to go through. That's more true than I've never ever seen before in my life, and again, we're not discrediting like a sign of you know that why people don't face obstacles, right? Yeah, we get that. We get that how complexion does not set you back further than sets me back in the eyes of others. So when unperceived out in public, you're not perceived the same when you can't sit there and say that you are because you're not definitely can assemble it to that at all, and that's that's the biggest thing with me and my is is that yes, we have a fair chance at life I get that but however you in my opinion may have hit star. Which is fine. Let me ask the difficult question we know that there are institutional obstacles and cultural obstacles in this country that are well rooted. against African Americans. I got a lot of questions from whites. and. One of the questions was my own question. About the role of. Black people in society and Black Accountability I got ton of those questions Some were worded pretty well, others are not let me ask it this way. What Role Do you think black folks play in healing the racial divide and where have they failed? We're has black culture failed to heal it. I, feel like I roll is huge. I mean huge because I I said on time. I'm not GonNa wait on someone else to raise the self worth my little brown and black kids like. Is Our job to do that like I'm not GonNa look for someone else to teacher Ed School are the coach or whoever like in in our community responsible for that like you know and so my job is I'm not gonNA wait on anyone to raise the set worst and as black people black men especially when I'm speaking from that. Is Not just good enough. No more. Just I raise I, own keys like we got to reach out to the kids don't have fathers who mom's not we gotta we gotTa really. Like when I was coming up you know we had that unity in the black neighborhoods where Anybody's Mama was everybody over there about a month and we gotta get back to that as black people we gotta realize like I'm not waiting on someone the government I'm not wait on them anymore like if I see the need my little black and brown kids need whether it's hanging out throwing the football going grass ice cream is my job do I can't wait on no one else soda when I talk about accountability, start their own neighborhood because I'm not waiting on. Someone as again. Let's say, Hey, we realize the problem in this country. Let us come put some money your bills and playground do no. I'm not waiting in the more like you know we gotta we gotta start. They're like really like just really feeding. You know again, let our kids know that you are special that you are valuable. You're worthy your love you intelligent because they're not getting on social they're not getting it on the TV and I always say is basketball players. rappers you know. So it's on us the next. What do you think about the role of of where does black accountability and that's large word of course. I like. Jira examples here up President Obama won by overwhelming amount of black and white. and His campaign slogan was yes, we can. When he got into office especially a lot of. maxine. Why Especially Black Winston Way and say, okay, we've got black and all of this. Okay to take either and we went from Rancho down. So we will. Work you didn't say yes I, can. Now mouth field that he failed him. Actually we feel ourselves. We should have stayed in Bob. You can't both own author bengals the to dance. In, ultimately, is that the the biggest failure of any group is the whether you decide to haul yourself out to vote or not. Invest a pretty big failure with most people. Yes. Because we have a lot of blacks especially black men say well, I'm. Not. GonNa. Vote is not a matter anyway to call the Electoral College. What people don't understand it. Forget the Electoral College forget the. Version of the president vote in your local elections. That's where you're goals count. And that takes care of the presidency right. Exactly, so you're talking about. Education. Education very important and then there's certain I'm not a spear there to dislike from the blacks form their town I can pick what angles it was. And winning destroyed that Rosewood with. Was Over So, there's a lot of fear we're as well. Well, that goes back when the whole. Conversation we had very early on of one of those drives. prejudices they're going to get mine and it year to year there is different in the minds. They'RE GONNA get mine drives a lot of that right? You're one of the things I've heard from a lot of folks. That wanted to weigh in with questions. Especially, white people was the sense of. I don't know how to talk. To black people. Because my fear is I'm GonNa be nails a racist and one of the particular question I got was. How can I bring up the subject of? All of us being accountable and the subject of black count newly without being tagged as a racist. Do you think that we throw the word racist around? Too easily too quickly or no I? Don't think. So okay I'm like you'd be real with me just hanging. Over how just be really me you friend of mine I don't have a problem with you express how you feel whatever just be real with me. Now, I have a problem when you sugarcoat stuff in beaten around like what you actually want to talk about or something like that. I got problem with that. But if you real with me, 'cause you just don't know. I I don't have any problem with that. I'm all for that. So just like a being nervous to talk about it because I don't know your experience a talk to me Let me know you know. Feel. As me. Anybody else. Here. I honestly I do. Everyday. Life I want I want to feel constructive criticism. Don't pay my back. The truth. But I I don't know a lot of.
"creek" Discussed on Conversations On Cub Creek
"On our topic hand. You can also check out the show notes on our podcast facebook page. Let's get started. We're going to pick up right where we left off talking about police brutality. It cause imbalance YEP. I don't know whether recruitment alone solves the problem and into Tracy's point I don't know whether training alone solves the problem. Unless the culture change. Yeah and I would back up even further on March an let's talk about accountability. Why is it that we're held? So Lote I mean it's just it's just. That you aren't accountable for any of the actions most of these most cops are probably executed at all. They're not serving any brian the most of them are paid leave. If I was a doctor committed malpractice guess what happens I lose my license. Why is it that these guys can commit something and still find a job later on right but we're still being fed this notion of that. But they've they lose their job there they won't work anywhere else. So this I don't think I on training is essential. No doubt. But the fact that they need to be held accountable is the other thing you know they know how to arrest a Dylann roof who went in a church and math folks. There wasn't bothering him so they arrest you. Didn't have a scratch on here, but then you're gonNA. Go Get jove here and. He had broken tail light and you don't. He Ain't got no act because you don't beat him up with the buddy, your gun and put an e. on his nick and just because he didn't have a or he ran from, you stopping him for a broken tail light but Dylann roof killed nine folks. In his arrest and processing experience was totally his house, his face was clear. Winner got a Sandwich I. I hope that you keep hearing that. He got a sandwich. Sandwich to feed him. You killed man people in a church who was praying for you and you got another I have a memo on my social media. Were it had it had a picture of six people the top three was white dudes debt killed him in a movie theater yet dylann roof on London groups and they looked out good. You know didn't have no blemishes on face in the bottom three people wanna had broken tail light ran from police. A missing child support payment or something, and they look like they had been put in shredder. Faces. Brutally beaten and all these things in for these instances in they know how to police they know how to arrest folks. Was your point about trading. Much. Let. Me Ask you this can ask you this because you. African, American end up police role. At some time, you know corrections officer then certainly as a as a parole officer to some degree, what was your experience with other black lease officers, corrections, officers did you ever run into the macho or how however we want to talk about that negative culture about police doesn't affect black officers to talking about black officers being as brutal half is brutal not not nearly as brutal, not nearly as brutal but you had a few of them. That was Macho cops or much of a correctional officers and not sure where you got the same problem. Macho tool at all the blacks but they don't do it to white. Restaurant. Also yeah. Even a black off that was my question is a black officer. Any more likely to. Treat. A black suspect versus whites suspect differently sometimes when sometimes that happens but not I don't think not as brutal as a white cop on by. A person or criminal whatever. But I've I've worked with a pretty stern of black correction officers and That was mean to you know other black inmates or whatever, and I have plenty of them and I had a female correction officer there she was brutal. And mostly to black males and I used to ask her like, Hey, what you doing you know we got get out of here. We gotta go home tonight you know. And but I'm attributing that to maybe she had bad relationship with a black guy and took it out the ones then this institutionalized whatever you know. So I don't know what where that came from but. And also had a few black guys that was Kinda mean or a bullying type of correction officers to other black inmates and I'm thinking could they have been bullied when they were younger and now they they in some type of row where I can be like you know I? I can be you know big big dog meal. You know since I got the badge and all this kind of of stuff but. It happens you know you found one too but. You know weaned killing each other like that. And let me just say real quick for you for your next question and I say. Why not jokingly but I heard it on the radio and it's true. It said the guy say preseason the police only wanted to have more misconduct is still keep your job like you know these guys who finally got caught on camera for killing someone this one I fence. These guys had a long record of misconduct. That's what was done. Nothing nothing can look. Culture yes. Yes. Policy Yes yes. Well moving away from that moment, let's get to kind of the general racial divide that we have in this country because that fuels pretty much. Any category were talking about whether we're talking about black lives matter or we're talking about police brutality or talk about those moments of racism that you bump into with Thornton's walking out the door or in the greenway on the hike, it's it's a significant racial divide. Arguably the probably in some circles no better than it's ever been what is something you would like specially whites to know and understand about this divide and what do you think some of the obstacles are into for US getting Can you be cannot be black and get it in by get it you get an opportunity under understand it from a more intimate state I mean. I mean, how do we how? Would you? What would you say you would like? Whites to know that maybe they. Don't know you don't think they know how do we? How do we black people and criminals? Okay. all black people aren't products of a day with fifteen kids. Bath fourteen different women are stuff like that. Stereotype art. Yeah And for me, I. Don't want anything from you like I won't retribution. Apologize Right S Ursus Blah Blah Blah I I on my s do the way I live my life today and so I don't need white folks say hey, I am sorry I don't need you apology. I only to give me anything I, need you give him my land I'd sent you treat me and recognize my family and my kids as equals note I love my kids and you love your superior. And No. Go ahead I want him to know that we know that they commit crimes and do back the identical same thing we do. Yes. There's why. They don't they don't report it like do. On Black. Right. Just know that there is just disproportion that you know he's not A. Same in life especially in black or white certainly, you just have a head start. You just do now granted. Okay. Do you have your head start?.
