"Huge test of his of his of his character at many levels and while most of us who can remember I don't quite remember at least I didn't that the first part of the hearings was like a week-long more traditional but vicious confirmation hearings sort of like the board hearing that had been a fairly recent centers really quizzed him on his views on abortion and abortion was really the driving force of that part of the confirmation battle to try to get him to say something about row. And after 5 days of that the committee voted seven to seven split but that was enough to send his name up to the full senate for a vote Justice. I was his lips and he finally relaxed they went off to talk to the country to kind of get away. And then just then Anita Hill's allegations were leaked to NPR and and the Senate decided not to read have the Judiciary can be reconvened whole new hearings. So just as Thomas said it's like you finished one Marathon you relax then you're told you got to run another one and this time as his wife says he was spent there was nothing left of him. They felt at this time. It was spiritual warfare because of the nature of the charges and she said the demons were loose and they had to rely on their faith took them through a day. They had prayer Partners come to the house. It was it was a very different process from them internally something that we viewers may not see And I I think family's very important there and it remains important Justice Thomas says a prayer for humility. I think dearly and it is a and that is a virtue in short supply here in the nation's capital gains. Absolutely. I tell you I do think back to the confirmation hearings and you're right when I think about Justice Thomas, I I do. I remember the confirmation hearings not as well detail as you just explained but there were so many aspects so many aspects of his life that I just had no idea about and we mentioned some of this also when he mentioned some other I think surprises I guess our audience will be a see this documentary. Well, I think there are two kinds of surprises. First of all, I think people who are closely following the court may have a lot of misapprehension about Justice Thomas, right? It doesn't speak in oral argument. He doesn't give a lot of interviews because of being burned by the media during his confirmation battle. And so the the people who have defined a story have Chrome An impression that he is not smart that he is misanthropic. He doesn't like to speak and I think anyone watches this movie whatever their politics kind of Come Away with that but those myths in in mind, but but I think the thing that to me is most surprising about the story is his resilience his ability to come back time and again from setbacks and his unwillingness to Define himself as a victim he could he was born in real poverty few people today or maybe none experience that at least in America like he was a victim of Jim Crow of real segregation, but he does not define himself that way and we all at different levels can make this similar choice and and I find that inspiring. Absolutely Michael again created equal Clarence Thomas's and words. Fantastic. May I congratulate you on your team on that if a gas what next for you? Well, we had a documentary that we produced before this on the bat biggest battles in the Iraq War Fallujah and the Jeff and we want to get that movie in two years too. And it really tells the stories in the words of the people who fought there and it tries to tell the story as if it were Gettysburg, Iwo Jima as a battle story without politics. We're going to ask the young men and women of our Armed Forces to fight and die for us. We need to understand what why they did what they did. How can they find out more about that? They are go to our website, which is manifold Productions. Com manifold productions.com. We're all that is listed, but first, they should go to Just As Time as movie.com. It's too many websites. Absolutely and I'll put links to all these been shown us for this episode Michael again. I would just thank you for taking time out of your schedule joints. They really do appreciate it.

Tissue Culture Explained

"Tissue culture is one of these topics. It's been at the back of my mind for quite a while something to cover on on the ledge. US growers don't seem to know that much about it. It's a term that spending around, but there isn't that much information out there about it. So I'm delighted to have you on the show. To demystify this topic. I guess the first really basic question is, can you just explain to us in terms that I'm gonNA understand. What tissue culture is and how it differs from from the. Other ways that we might be propagating plants for the house plot market. The basic principles of tissue culture are you're going to take just a small sample of the tissue material from the plant whether that's a section of leaf, a piece of the stem, a single node, and you're putting that into a completely clean environment for that plant to grow within that Environ-, you're giving it all of the nutrients it needs sugars, micronutrients, macronutrients to give that plants every possible chance to grow. The best it can in that environment a typical propagation methods of chopping a node and waiting those months for it to eventually grow roots, and then start putting out a new shoot. You're taking control of that when it comes to tissue culture your immediately telling the plant to start growing those new shoots and ignore any type of routing activity. So all of its energy is going in right from the beginning to create. A new shoot, and then as many shoots as possible. Right so it's giving you speed that you wouldn't get from other forms of propagation and also presumably in that very sterile environment, you're not going to be subject to any conditions like viruses coming in things that might come in and affect your crow correct and that is one of the major benefits of Tissue Culture a lot of the industry. That's their main focus. Now is is elimination of disease and pests within their crops. When they know they can start a brand new fresh crop with. Material that has no disease no pass. They're one step ahead of anything else that could go wrong in that process. So when you're starting that. That, grow with brand new fresh tissue culture plant material. You know you're not getting any type of disease that's coming from another greenhouse. Everything is coming directly from a completely enclosed secure environment where none of that stuff can grow directly to your greenhouse. So any of those problems that come up are going to be on the greenhouse side. So how much plump material d need really not much in order to eventually produce quite applauds and where are you getting that material from I mean really the plant material can come from any source. Any plant that you have sitting on your shelf, you could take and do a tissue culture of I. Mean you need a very minimal amount of material, but it has to be clean material. So you want. That that newest growing tip of of a plant that has the the cells inside of it to to be able to multiply that much better. So if you have a plant that has say ten nodes on it, you're probably going to chop those top two nodes from the plant and be able to put those into tissue culture because they're young enough they have enough of those cells inside them already that they want to continue doing that process where the older parts of the plants they've. Kinda lost all of those hormones so they're only focuses. The tip of the plant growing and roots growing at the base. You're kind of controlling out beyond their. So you started your own tissue culture lab in Massachusetts in the US schools senior slabs. Going, and why did you just decide to start this particular business? Yes. This is kind of been a passion project slash hobby for for many many years for me but lately. What's been going on in the plant market this was kind of the push that I needed to go. Okay. I have these skills I see all of these problems that are happening. Why am I working for for somebody else to to do what they choose this is my chance to actually have an objective look at the plant market and say, okay, what's happening? What can I help? What can I prevent from happening? And you don't really get that. If you are working for somebody else you're you're typically. Going out. Whatever. The quickest easiest. Plants are going to be

Land of oppression in the land of of all bad shit. The land of appreciate to saying that's what we see right here. It's an immediate where we go and here we got a real life story of someone who's come to this country and taking advantage of the opportunities that we. Who are born here seem to forget about that. We have I'm living the American Dream Ever I love it. It's fucking awesome. Perspective motherfucker had is thank you. I was being highly sarcastic about brushing he'll learn. You got to like really consider. Answers even though. I'm just so fucking tired of hearing man like you know it's just it's. It's. The entitlement of this of the country. And the social, the social entitlement entitlement of this country you know we used to talk about it like people just wanted to win or they wanted the life for free with no work. Right? We wanted they wanted to take some of so-and-so's success and get some free shit. But now we've got the entitlement gone to a whole new level entitlements now. If I'm. Afraid. Of a virus then all of you need to shut down your life because I'm fucking terrified of it. You, know what? I'm saying like it's gone to new levels and it's infected our society to a place where. What the fuck is going on you know some interesting is that there used to be a definite optimism. So when I say that you could be living in Jim Crow South Yeah right or you could be living in Compton during the race wars and and yet everybody with no money I grew up with no money single moms six kids he packed my dear paper bag we had food stamps, but there was a definite optimism that you worked hard enough right and you didn't wind. You lived in a try me world not a y MI world. That's what you're talking about. It was like why me that's So frustrating that now, we don't even have the definite optimism and people are sitting there `blame-shame. Justification in allowing everyone to control their own opt it's become. It's become a my. From when I see you know and I was thinking about this today as I was doing cardio. Sticking about how You know when? You know when I started in business, it's been twenty two years now. It was wanted to win and then you celebrated the winds. And it seems to me that that has gone almost completely away which is. something. I'm never going to give up on because I like my life but and it's been replaced with this attitude of. Whoever the biggest victim is get celebrated the most and so we have people could com-, you know competing over and we look at this let's look at Instagram we're let's look at twitter. Let's look at people's content like so much of it and they've taken this idea of being vulnerable and telling the truth and they realized that like whenever I told the Saturday, the story I tell the? More attention I get right and so now we have you know it's just like the girls who only show their ass ever. You know now we have people who all they do. Every message is fucking complain about Shitty things are and you know what if you're GONNA? Complain. Every, single day about how shooting things are guess what things would be pretty shitty. Absolutely you know what I'm saying. You know I always because I I try not stick my head on facebook. I sound like I'm GonNa facebook since two thousand seventeen. The BS you you see on there and you see all these people complaining I I grew up with a lot of those people you know to agree with a lot of those people I got here in the eighth grade and You got to have some friendships from from the hood and all that stuff and they victimize labrum victimize themselves unfortunately, and you know I just don't understand if they were to ever ask an immigrant right hey, man, do we really have at this bad here in this country that emigrant would actually look at that person and be like. What the what the what the talking about what are you talking about this? Bad. You know you know where I come from like you know bread like food isn't even guaranteed then that same day right my grandmother my forget that my mom at that resort used to work for about thirty one dollars a week. You know what? I mean like thirty dollars a week there's nobody in this country that's making thirty one dollars a day. Yeah Right. So a lot of those folks. That complain about this country. You know you just tend to wonder you know I thought really hard gay here. The second time I came through Nogales I can through a fence I was ten years old right my mother literally just say, Hey, listen to this guy he's GonNa. Take you to the McDonald's on the other side I didn't even know this guy when he told me to jump I jump when he told me the Doug I dug when he told me run Iran right.

So much hard work to get here me and my mother to get me here and then my brother. I don't understand what these folks are complaining about. If they don't like this country, we're still worth. They don't understand what they're complaining about either I don't guess nobody gets it.

"I'm Peter Segal and in the year nineteen, Ninety Nine I. was pretty much doing what I am now, which doesn't speak much for my ambition but I was also watching a lot of great movies. What would you do if you had a million dollars and near at recaps with Peter Sega is back and we are recapping like his nineteen ninety nine perhaps really one of the greatest years for movies ever. You can find nerd at recaps with Peter Segal wherever you get your podcasts. From WBZ CHICAGO. This is nerd at I'm greg. Johnson and I am certain that I do not need to tell you that election week is almost here. Maybe you like me I've decided to mute every single human on twitter who is giving you a countdown of how many days there are left. Maybe you're also getting a whole bunch of texts and calls maybe you are kind of super over it. Well, while we are on the subject I do think it's worthwhile to zoom out for a second and recognize the fact that voting America's actually really weird. Like not a lot of us do it. And a lot of elections and up coming down to the people living in just a handful of states which means it might be worthwhile to think about how we actually got here. And you know why we have the Electoral College. And what does it matter if people vote? anyways. Here, to guide us through these questions and more is Aaron Geiger Smith. She's a journalist who recently wrote the book. Thank you for voting the maddening enlightening inspiring truth about voting in America. It's a book that is super. non-partisan but pretty explicitly pro voting Erin Hi. Hi thanks for having me. Thank you for doing this I. Am very excited. Seems like you have. Become a pretty huge voting nerd. Obviously, if you've written this book I have become is huge voting are thought is absolutely the best way to describe me right now I don't know if I'll ever not be but for right now it's The top description. So I. Definitely WanNa Talk to you about some more like now times issues, but we should start some history because obviously you've done a lot of research I'm curious what our earliest elections were even like like was it marbles and jars or horses and stables like how do people even do it back in the day by the time it got to us it was a lot of voice vote and then yeah, some some rocks and jars type of thing paper didn't come much later the fun parts are that the early days even though it was largely white men who owned property. They were often held in. Taverns so ski float, it was a good time. As you can imagine that didn't always end. Great. Certainly. In fights and some hardcore voter intimidation So that's kind of where we started in later developed into paper ballots where. Everyone had to bring their own, which was something I didn't know at all you yo balanced e y. as saying that sort of where a party ticket comes from because people wise up and thought well, if I provide people with a ballot that has all the boxes checked for me and my fellow party members makes things easy. So that's where we had party tickets. So can you explain the electoral college to me in like forty five seconds or less flew problem? Let's do it. Many think that it was created to pacify slaveholding states because of the way populations were counted but that's not completely agreed on. The main reason was because. There wasn't good media. We weren't getting twenty, four seven news and they needed a time for. People to gather together and bring from their states what people felt and sort of represent their states. So it was a way to have a representative gathering when there was no way to hold a popular vote and deliver all of those votes. So that really was the main reason that's obviously something that does not. Matter Today we are certainly getting all the information we could ever want about the candidates I think more than we could want is would be accurate to more than we ever want exactly but no matter the truth is I sort of say this in the book is the truth is no matter why it was created or if we should still have it or what good it does now, the fact is right now we have it and so it is the law of the land until it changes. Yeah. So. You're very clear about like the history of voting in America for very long time. It was only landowning weight males who were able to vote You know obviously recently, we just celebrated the Centennial of of Women's suffrage, which is also extremely complicated in terms of you know there were still a lot of ways that certain kinds of people especially people of Color and women of color were kept from being able to vote. There are still huge. Around voter suppression but I wonder how that shifted laws like did we see serious social change? Once this group of people was allowed to participate. Any yes and no even when groups get the right to vote, sometimes the change is slow but one historical period I always looked you in wish that we focused on a lot more is the reconstruction era when after eighteen, seventy when the fifteenth amendment really solidified black. Men's right to vote. Immediately there is a huge uptick in. Black men voting there were many lagman their elected to office. We even had a black senator who was who was appointed there were black congressman and. That stopped when reconstruction ended. About a decade later. And Jim? Crow laws begin to take over. But that period sort of gives you an idea of how giving people. The right to vote can immediately make a really huge difference and then also what a massive difference it can make when that right to vote is chipped away at for decades and decades as Jim Crow laws did so yeah that reminds me of something you talked about in your preface, which is that you you say the United States has voting problem not enough of us do it. Do, you think that is the biggest problem. There is when it comes to voting in the United States just that participation isn't as high as it should be well, I think I would describe it as the biggest problem because I just don't think we can argue that we have the best. Representation of what the country feels when you only have sixty one percent of eligible people voting for president and like the young people turn out just. Continues to blow my mind how many votes are left on the table from those in the eighteen to twenty nine year old range So, in the last presidential election, only forty, six percent of eligible voters ages eighteen to twenty nine showed up forty six. That's not good. Yeah. It's so low and every age group votes lower than the age group just older than it, and that continues until you.

UCL Shock-tar for Real Madrid

"Start, we don meltdown in Madrid thaw shocked shocked by we'd be so good and Writers. Joining us is Alex Kirkland Alex. Let's get right into it. What happened. I mean what happened was a disastrous five minutes of POCO from. Real. Madrid that I saw from them was one of the worst. I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.

"Think it's worth telling. Among like Yes. I certainly do think it's worth tally. James took the story to a newspaper journalist who wrote an article that got picked up nationally by the Associated Press? For James this was long overdue credit, but she's not very surprised that it took so long. Keep in mind it was the time when black people and white people couldn't even go to the bathroom together they couldn't use the same water fountain. So you know for other people to take credit for white people to take credit for that work. That was just the way it was I mean that was just the way the country was at that time. James believes that the more we dig into the history of black inventors, Black Mathematicians and scientists. The more will discover that heroes like gladys West aren't so rare after all they were always there ready to be seen. Dr West. And folks like Kathryn Johnson and some of the other hidden figures. They're really not anomalies, these men and women. Rebecca days of segregation days of Jim Crow. They've you know they've always had the intelligence they always had the wherewithal. They just never received credit for their work because of racism. So. Had not the someone. Just. Like I did we'll stop the WES someone found out about Katherine Johnson than the other hidden figures and thought their story was amazing and couldn't believe that no one knew there are a lot of people around men and women of Color. That never got credit for the work that they did. In engineering and mathematics in the sciences. So they're not anomalies. At all and West accomplishments speak to the potential in any number of little girls before the civil rights movement fighting their way onto the stage. Author Marvin Jackson I call her mother term is recently recognized because she basic math was always there. The now she's being recognized for all the hard work she did. I just think that it's important that we recognize people like gladys and the contributions they made a mean. And they did it at an even more difficult time than now. And so that should give. Young. Girls a reason to be more positive about doing these types of things because it'll be a lot easier for them now to do these things then when it works for Gladys. Later, Westwood build on early GPS breakthroughs by contributing to the geosat satellite mission in the nineteen eighty s where she helped determine the height of oceans down to the inch. An even won her forty, two year career had ended. She remained a fanatic for precision and for excellence at levels that most of us never even contemplate. After retiring in one, thousand, nine, hundred eight West went on to get her doctor of philosophy degree in public administration at the age of seventy she was the only black woman in her program. And just this last summer she published her memoir entitled it began with a dream. Here's a bit more of our conversation. In two, thousand, eighteen, the airforce base command may do the first black woman inducted into the. Hall of fame. What did that honor mean to you? That that was that was fantastic. It was. Unbelievable. You walking around for a few days one who you are. Do you feel it should have come sooner. I think. This is about right Sam I can't. Think of a better time. At the end and You don't want to wait too late so you can enjoy. The Nan, I can get to sorta enjoy what has happened to me. So based on what you've seen over the past eighty nine years do you believe the culture in technology in science has evolved its attitude towards black innovators? I've been thinking about the. Time that has passed over and looking back at the real times you know taking folks, inventions and ideas and all. Sort of done with that much Shingai, I, guess you just. Do Your thing and take credit for. What advice or words of encouragement you give to other black technologists and scientists in the field? I had to I had to work hard and I have to not be discouraged and treat others as you want to be treated. You set your goals and work work with dollars with somebody else doing and in Nebula and always be best. And I guess.

So Great Job Team Now we this last week we started working on like our next work psycho, which is basically. Released when to that's like the big thing so I haven't working on all things related to that. Of course, I underestimated how work it would be just to like. You know when you're hitting a breaking release, there's so much like My sure. That's every tiny little thing that I want to change because this is like my only chance to make a couple of little change is. What it's like. You're making A, we're not making many changes really No class names are changing at all I. Don't think except for the we changed like call gap to gap acts in roh-gap to gap Y, but we already changed like before two point. Oh. But we just have brushed shipping both versions for awhile but not documenting the old ones so I don't think that's Going to be like a racing change for most people, and it's like super define replace to change that one. We're not changing any other class names So the only other breaking changes are super minor. It's like in your configure file. You know how you could set like a default border color by saying like default and then the color that sort of thing it. Anyplace in the configured where we were using defaults to be like a special word that meant something like it meant like don't add a suffix to the class name. We've replaced that with default in all caps so that it stands out and. Johnston. And we did it because there's some utilities where you actually want use the word default. So like we already have class called cursor default, for example, that sets like the cursor to D- phones, defaults of real value for that. So was kind of weird that default meant different things depending on like the yeah. So this felt like worth it because it's just like a go through and opera case a couple of things and most people probably won't have to do anything because. It's surprisingly. Like it's surprising how few people actually customize like the FIG A lot. You know it's just me. Yeah. Most of the changes just like being changed automatically in the default can fig. So if you haven't over ridden them, you won't even change it anyways Let me see what other stuff we we do in here open the very, very logical breaking change for like two data. Yeah. It just makes it a little bit better. And more predictable. I we dropped I e eleven support. Actually that's like the biggest breaking. Jane? I applaud that yes, it's not even a breaking change in the way that. It's a breaking change, but it's like. Not. Like Oh, now I have to do a bunch of work to upgrade to tell him to buy. No it's like you either can upgrade and it takes no work or you can't upgrade right right or you can pitch in and build the I guess it wouldn't be Apollo but like a preset, right? Yeah. Yeah. So I've toyed with this idea that you can totally like this precepts feature until. When now where you can say like instead of extending the tailwind defaults extend like my own defaults and because of how like plug into the tail and stuff is you can actually take like one of our utilities that doesn't work in I eleven like transform stuff is designed in an eleven incompatible way. You could literally just like disable those Plug Ins as part of your preset and include your own plug ins. Eleven scale I eleven rotate I eleven translate. That are less powerful but actually work in eleven sort of doing nothing, which is what are currently do right. And those could still read from like the same theme keys and stuff you know. So you wouldn't have to you basically just be like ripping out the core plug in swapping in a poly fil instead, and if someone just builds maintains it in, you know it's like transparent to the end user. So Gotcha, we might do that or I might just say someone else do that. If you care because I don't care about my own sites. In smaller too because like we used to ship. For every color utility, we have to convert the colors to RGB as we can have a variable portion for the Passi because we use CSS variables to let you get changed the opacity on color but because that doesn't work nine eleven, we ship the HEX code directly behind him as a fallback and. The colors like the biggest part of the whole build. So all of it, every single color had an extra declaration and even with perch CSS, it would keep it because purchase that's only deletes the whole class. It doesn't like delete parts of the class you know what I mean. Sure. Yeah. So now it'll be even smaller in that regard although it's bigger in other ways because we're adding things to it. I A couple of extra cutler, a couple of a couple of that. We're actually being less colors. So Oh, you've extract you're you're extracting them and making them opt in right So that's what we've done. The new defaults are. Gray. Red Yellow Green Blue Purple and pink,

Politicians, Constance Baker Motley

"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood. Marshall who later became a court justice over the course of her work at the N. double ACP constance assisted with almost sixty cases that ended up reaching the Supreme Court. She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine. Constance is work integrated multiple southern state universities putting her toe-to-toe with racist governors determined to bar black students from schools. She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels. So she had to stay with local activists, but even that didn't make her feel completely safe her friend Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar. Evers. was murdered his own driveway. So in nineteen, sixty, five constance left her work in the south and moved back to New York City. Shortly thereafter, she became the first black woman to serve in the New York State Senate. She was also elected president of the borough of Manhattan which made her the first woman in that role. During her time as a politician constance focused on raising up under served communities in the city like Harlem and East Harlem in nineteen sixty, six president Lyndon Johnson appointed constance to the US.

Stitch Fix is betting youll buy clothes its way

"Bashing has changed since the covid nineteen outbreak began in that there is none. Okay. I'm exaggerating a little but what we're wearing has changed a lot one company of knows exactly how much is stitch fix it learns your style through a mix of online quizzes and outcomes and higher stylist who choose clothes specifically for you, you get a box of personalized items one at a time or as a subscription, keep what you want and send back the rest behind the scenes. The company's tack predicts what you and people like you might like. So it's always updating inventory and its in house brands but. What happens to a clothing company? Even a super techie one in a pandemic Katrina. Lake is the founder and CEO of stitch fix. We've been able to meet the client where she is where he is because our business model is predicated on this notion of personalization, and while we haven't seen these big macro disruptions all that often we see it on the micro level all the time we see people who are switching jobs. Now they're in a more casual workplace and so like those types of micro trends that we. have been able to meet the client where he or she is for years and years like that. Same Muscle help us in the last six months as we've seen this massive trend towards casualization and and frankly people buying less close. But buying more meaningful more on more thoughtfully buying clothes that that are really what they need that exact moment. How would it help you overcome something like supply chain leg, which we saw so many businesses suffer from I mean our business model has always been. We put things. Out in the world, we can know within a few a matter of weeks. This color is working better than that one this size, and we should only make this in these sizes and not those, and so that flexibility was already a capability that we were building with our vendors where we needed them to be flexible because we had such great data so that we could evolve our buys and so that was a muscle we already had created with our vendors as we think about kind of big not crow shifts like. The casualization of the workplace trend like we actually already were working on that like we already knew that the workplace was becoming more casual and so yes, like we pulled up a lot of volume in happened faster than we anticipated but I think this pandemic really has accelerated trends that were already happening. What does the data tell you about what might be coming? I think right now what we're seeing is I think some of these changes are going to be permanent. The data is showing us that first of all people are going to be buying apparel online and much much greater proportions and they were historically. So right now people are buying less close people are going on fewer vacations. People have less weddings to go to You know all the reasons people are buying less close at this very moment. And even as the market is shrinking, we are growing in the face of that. So we are taking share in that world at some point some of those categories will come back up like people will start going back out going to dinner is going on vacations, and so we do think some of that market will come back up I do think that like some of the desire to be more. Thoughtful and what people buy I think that's permanent like I mean we are all living with our things right now and I. Think we are. We are all I think realizing that there are things in our closet that we bought just because it was eighty percent off or that we bought for just one occasion and it was super cheap and now we feel weird about it being in our closet and So I do think people are going to be more thoughtfully buying probably fewer things that mean more in their lives and I think that's a good trend for us and I think the casualization of the workplace is a permanent trend I mean I think that's that's one that's been happening for years and years, and you know if we imagine a world in which more people are working from home and. People have more flexibility you know we're going to be asking are close to be serving more of a multi-purpose. You know like kind of the I want something that I could wear on zoom and then work out and then come back to work beyond Zuma gotten right and so you know I think that there is going to I think that that casualization or the workplace trend will will certainly continue. You mentioned that you know people may by fewer things that have more meaning to them. How is that good for you? Oh, that's great for us on our businesses always been about we want to be your partner in helping you find things that you love. So if people are less likely to be buying things just because it's on a steep discount or you know buying something to where it wants even though it doesn't fit perfectly like this is actually how we win is actually when people are really looking for the one thing that fits for the. One thing they going to really love and that's where I think. We our capabilities around personalization are much much a really showcase. I think if people are much more focused on like I'm GonNa buy not as many things, but I really WanNa love them like that is great for us. How if at all have you developed new technology or tweaked your existing recommendation technology during the pandemic, our core business has really been the. Six model where clients let us know what they're looking for, and we send them items to try on in the comfort of their own home, and of course, that model is very resonant today but we also have introduced direct by in ways that people can engage with our recommendations in new ways, and so now people can actually use their apt to be able to to buy things directly from us from recommendations and that helps. as people have more sporadic needs than they used to and so we've really thought about how do we capitalize on this moment when people are really thinking about kind of new ways to do things and and we'd be as relevant as we can. Your Chief Operating Officer said on your most recent earnings, call that the company plans to automate more to approve improve efficiency. Can you give me some details about how to work? You know we still have a lot of low hanging fruit in our on in our operations and You know this has been a business that grew to be you know one point, seven, billion dollars in just about ten years and and so we we built a lot of things quickly and You know there are simple things like as examples you know we can make our warehouses more dense by having multiple kind of layers of how we store things, and so that's kind of a simple example of like if we can actually build more vertically in our warehouses, we can make our warehouses more efficient we also have been starting to use. Robots to help our. Associates to be able to do their jobs more efficiently, and so that's capital investment that we've been making our warehouses and so you know I think there's still a fair amount of low hanging fruit in terms of making sure that our warehouses can be as efficient and that we're using as much technology to make our warehouse associates jobs as as good as we can. Necessarily talking about algorithms that fully replace actual human stylists. No, that's not actually what we are referring to. There I mean we are algorithms can continue to be better in butter but like our stylists are such a valuable and differentiating part of our business like I think we really believe that we can continue to invest in Algorithms to help our silence to be better and help me are stylish jobs better and more effective and easier But I think that that combination is such a secret sauce of ours.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires

"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.

The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP

"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.

Becoming the Director of Your Life - with Fritz Brumder & Jerry Colonna

"A. Fritz. Each. You could mean, she was jerry thanks for coming on the show before we get started. Wanted you just take a minute him introduce yourself. Sure my name is I her I am the CO founder and CEO of a company called brand lives. We are based in Portland Oregon and I've recently exited the business in now I've moved my family to bend, Oregon and things are going really well right now. But. Wasn't necessarily always that way. So we'll get into kind of Janta Printer Journey of brainless. Was the. CEO. Wasn't the. Would it be helpful to talk a little bit about the was the CEO Journey? Yeah I think what's most helpful for me I. A now out of the company that I started it was. Over a seven year process, but we are really in a hard for seven years. had one co founder in the company, but he was just really on board more. Of the initial co-founder Story a little bit more but. I am in a period where I'm still kind of decompressing from that process. It ended well on a minute. Really good spot right now. Have some breathing room and have time to think and be creative and and working onto passion projects and hopefully launched my next company. But as a result of some of the like. The turmoil I experienced as a result of starting in next thing, my company. There's a little bit of fear in that process of. One in my ready to. Jump. Back on the hamster wheel knowing that the energy and effort that it takes to start a company from Ground Zero just to give you a little bit of an idea of scale, we raised around five million in capital. Peaked at about fifty employees and contractors and. Had Global operations throughout the world live video delivery tool. So basically create communication and collaboration for product companies or customers were. People like Nike Levis go crow. So it was Super Fun ride for the vast majority of it, but also pain along the way. So. Maybe before we SORTA die being. Where you are now. And some that fear, and maybe we can spend a little bit of time sort of plotting out a little bit of a path forward. I think for context it won't be helpful to talk a little bit about. The transition out and what the last few months were like. Yeah. So my first question is, why did you leave? Well it's it goes back to about a year ago. So the company. was doing really well, we navigate a number of things that mentioned have one co founder and we we were a spin out company so. You know from the early company creation process, we navigated some pretty tough decisions very very well, and then we grew in that process was insanely rewarding fantastic management team culture, the company momentum of becoming the May. Top four hundred of Inc. five hundred list of I two to three years in business that we were growing well over one hundred percent those first couple years. On, and then just as the numbers got better know even though we're adding over a million in a are. The percentage growth rate was telfer and I started to notice some issues with my own in particular. I was just we weren't seeing eye-to-eye in. Too. Many situations. And started to become a problem out as we are trying to make sense of. Why is the company not growing over one hundred percent anymore Even, though we were making solid progress, it was. Challenging to make sense of that. I had one one venture capitalist one angel investor, my co-founder, an independent on board. So I was I mentioned been to rebuild circles and I was looking back at my journal entries from a lot of those sessions. There were times where I realized.

Graham says SC people of color can go anywhere in the state but 'need to be conservative, not liberal'

"Is terrified. Of what is happening in South Carolina, You know they had a Council of South Carolina debate. You know why? Because Lindsey Graham wouldn't take A test for Corona virus. And while we're at it, let me let me just throw this out, too, for all of you to hear. In a televised campaign event, Lindsey Graham said African Americans and immigrants can go anywhere in his home state of South Carolina, but they just need to be conservative. That's right. Ram made the comment in a televised conversation so called with his political rival. Former South Carolina Democratic Party chair Jaime Harrison. The first African American to serve in that role, and he made the remark in the context of political careers and said Harrison would lose because he's a Democrat, not because he's black Oh, I believe are cops. Your sister systemically racist? No, he said. Do I believe South Carolina as a racist state? No. He said. Let me tell you why, he said. Young people out there young people of color young immigrants. This is a great state. But one thing I can say without any doubt, you can be an African American and go to the Senate. But you have to share our values. He went on to say, If you're young African American or an immigrant, you could go anywhere in the state. You just need to be conservative, not liberal. Did you hear that? This is Lindsey Graham. This is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Member South Carolina Waas, a Confederate state during the civil War. And later institutionalized races during the Jim Crow era enforcing second class status for African Americans. And Graham. A long time senator is tied with Harrison in a highly competitive race.

Testing Chromecast with Google TV

"We reviewed the Google, the crow cast with Google TV. This name continues to me You got one and you've been using it a few days joe did the review and he said that Google just won the living room. So tell us about what it's like actually plugging it into a TV and using the thing setting it up was pretty simple. You had an option for setting it up in the Google home APP or setting it. Up on device the way most android TV's are setup a setting up through the girl home map actually didn't work for me. So I had to go through it manually and then of course, log into all your APPs manually that's always fun but once you get things set up the Google TV interface for the most part is pretty easy to work your way through. So long as you don't have some as long as you have something. At least general that you're aiming towards if you just turn on your TV and like I have no idea what I wanNA watch it can still overwhelm you a little bit. Talk about that experience so. It's recommending shows from different networks and And services over the top services what do you see when you first log in? That's? From say an Nvidia Shield today. Well, it's recommending stuff from services that I don't subscribe to. So every time that I had turned on my Google TV since I got it on Tuesday, it has popped up with a recommendation for love craft country, which is hilarious since I hate horror but also hilarious because I do not subscribe to Hbo Max and I pushed the APP as far down as I could because I. couldn't completely uninstall it or if I have I haven't found the setting for your. Okay. So it's it's pushing you things that you don't currently have subscriptions to at once to up sell you in some way, but it's also giving you. Recommendations on content from services that you do have like Netflix like Disney plus. Is it a better experience today, and it's early incarnation than Android TV on the you know on a nvidia shield or one of the android TV experiences built into an actual television. For the regular user. I think. It is a better experience for people who are persnickety in particular about their experience. The way that I usually am it's different but I'm not sure if it's necessarily better Thursday Google TV definitely is missing out on that other injury TV's half. Okay. So let's talk about that because this is the. From Roy understand this is the de facto android TV experience going forward in a year or two. Basically, every android TV product will have the Google TV overlay and. There's a couple of questions here. The the question is, why is Google doing this? You know we know the answer it's pushing services that you don't subscribe to can upsell you and grab thirty percent of the cut but. Google also thinks that it's just a better lean back experience and the you know the other thing is that this is Google TV. This is Google's flagship television experience and separate from Android TV as the platform that developers can can build experiences for so. Walk us through what you think. Google's rationale is for building. Explicitly Different Overlay for existing Andrew TV hardware I. Think they wanted to consolidate the experience and have it be something that is easier for them to augment and improve as time goes on because right now for updating the home screens on a Goulty on an Android TV, it'll take months for it to reach most models assuming it comes to most models at all as evidenced by the fact that them injecting adds onto the home screen has not reached the majority of Nydia Shield. TV's because nobody is very protective about what software pushes out to their their set top boxes. But at the same time, I mean. It's a different perspective and I like I like the fact that Google has recognized that Oh. Hey this one feature that we had in the Google play movies and TV APP for four years we can use that on TV to make it easier for everybody to watch what they want to watch. 'CAUSE as long as we've had for several years now google play movies and TV. If you go to a movie listing, you can see whether or not you wanNA watch this in Google play movies on TV or Netflix or who or whatever else it's tied into. And the fact that they've expanded that in turn that into the launcher for injury TV now is useful. Maybe I'm a conspiracy theorist. Then maybe maybe maybe I think everything every company does not just google that's connected and has a user interface is all about analytics. This this included. Look at what Google knows by using this new call it a launch guess. It knows what services you don't have. Is You do. What services you've looked at because you saw content you liked what type of content you like when you look for content to consume. That's all valuable stuff for partners it is but I. don't think it's learning as quickly as you would think, Jerry most because I've spent. Of, the things that I've watched on my in on the android Google TV since I have set it up, the majority had a majority of it has been reebok runs for s few and yet every time I log in the first row recommendations is mostly Disney plus in Netflix. and very little from really well. Well No. Because I've. I've watched maybe one thing on Netflix in the last two weeks in Disney. watched. Two or three different things in the last. Week and a half to three weeks and it didn't recommend either of them. I hear you and also I I guess I should have said. The learning part is secondary. The primary part is data collection that I will agree with. But I'm also somebody who is I'm also somebody who hasn't been clicking on recommendations through Google TV APP I'm still somebody who I prefer to go into the APP itself and pick what I WANNA watch. So that might be why the data collection hasn't quite caught up on me yet. Yeah I mean look there's. Google is learning from the experience of running. Algorithms. Its main approach is main product is Google search. It is run by an algorithm that adapts to you and your browsing history. Youtube is just one huge algorithm recommends content so that you will keep watching this feels like. This is Google doing the same thing in a lean back experience that you. You basically queue up a whole bunch of content and once you're finished something, you may be likely to go with a recommendation based on what you've previously watched and because Google is the only company to have gotten Netflix's through the through that barrier of consolidating all of its content into the four use section apple famously couldn't get Netflix. To agree to terms to be in its TV APP. So if you're sitting in watching your apple TV, you will not get Netflix's recommendations in that APP, and that makes it a pretty bad experience because. I. Don't know about you. But half of the things I watch are on Netflix at least. Yeah. So with Netflix content imbued into the lean back for you experience, I feel like as long as you subscribe to a few different services. Hulu. Netflix. Disney plus you know maybe peacock or Hbo Max you will never run out of things to watch and if you can learn about your watching habits well, enough it will do for. LEAN BACK TV watching for over the top services, what it did with net with Youtube and It's exactly what makes Youtube so addictive I haven't been able to use mine yet because. My Av receivers ancient doesn't ever knew enough hdmi standard and it's encryption thing. It's just me with old junk and I don't have anywhere else to plug it in. But what I've seen of it I think I'm GonNa like the interface. It's you know maybe it needs tweet errors telling us it's not perfect for her and. You know I'm sure it's not look look how bad even the APP store was for a year or two. About finding you content you actually cared about, but I, liked it. It reminds me enough of the net flicks. Experience on a big screen that I really like. That I think all also like it on this. Google. Not The chrome whatever they end up calling it. You know overlay whatever. But maybe not today I I haven't. Got To buy new stuff I hate buying new stuff. You can do that next week if it's only fifty bucks than you know it's it's actually that's the other part of this conversation. Right? This is only fifty dollars it's. Thirty dollars cheaper than the chrome cast ultra when it came out and it does not on the hardware doesn't support fewer standards. It's still a four K. streaming device in fact, I've seen. Evidence. That apps on this look better I mean it's not it's no surprise that Youtube for looks better on the chrome cast with Google TV than it does on the Apple. TV. But it does and it's important that it does because net because in addition to net flicks, youtube is a very popular lean back TV experience right now and Google has the new. I. Think it's The v one Kodak on there. It's just a better quality lower bandwidth experience if you're watching it on chrome cast. Right and the price you hit you hit on their that's important. It's going to cost me more money to buy the cables. I need than it did to buy. The device that would just work if if I had a normal setup. So that that's that's important you know Google has went on the record saying it knows that times are tough for a lot of people in that you know hardware prices, matter and service prices matter and them releasing something that. Is. This best been as well received as this has which tells me that it's good at the Price Day they have it. You know. Anything under fifty bucks is still an impulse buy for most people. Yeah, and this'll be going down to forty dollars for prime day and Black Friday I believe based on some leaked information that we saw it Andrew Police last week. So at forty dollars, this is really just google subsidizing the hardware so that it can get you to subscribe to Youtube TV which we didn't even talk about are like live TV is a big component of this product and it is very prominent on Google TV? In a way that it isn't in the ANDROID TV experience.

UK and Germany's different approaches to the pandemic

"The UK and Germany are both leading democracies and not far apart on the globe. They took very different approaches to the pandemic with very different results the UK as suffered the most covid nineteen deaths in Europe Germany with a much bigger population has lost far fewer people. NPR's correspondent in each country rob Schmitz in Berlin and Frank Langfitt in London had been talking among themselves. Hey Rob Frank. So tell me what happened in the UK. were. So many mistakes a big reason is the government honestly doesn't really seem to think ahead Boris Johnson you remember he sold Brexit to the British people in two thousand sixteen with no plan on how to execute it. So in the virus began spreading here Johnson course he's now prime minister. He was slow to recognize the threat here he is on March Third I was at movie night. where I think the rush if you credit ours patience and I shook hands of everybody. So by April Johnson an icy ICU covid nineteen I was talking to you in Boyd he's a member of the scientific group that advises the government. The UK didn't really grasped the speed with which the epidemic was entering the country under are all sorts of reasons for that, some of which are to. Lack of organisational capability sometimes when there's very high uncertainty, you simply have to shut things down really quickly and frank here in. Germany. That's what they did on January twenty seven. The first known case of coronavirus was sent to Clemson ventner chief physician at the Munich Schwab in clinic we have very similar like the boys gall. Be always prepare. Then you're watched what was happening in Italy in January where the virus was spreading pretty fast and we knew that we have to flatten the curve. So even before the first case of Covid nineteen and Germany, he was working on slowing its progress and he says the German government was involved from day one asking us what do you need we? We? We didn't have to ask them for example, Germany already had a big supply of ICU beds clouds Deutsche is at the Federation of German. You know that it's been a long debate on whether we had too many intensive care beds that warned us that often obviously that debate is over Deutsche says, Germany also has a lot of hospitals. If you take all the beds in all of Germany's hospitals, you get four times more per capita than what the UK has rob. You had slack in your system in Germany there. Was Not much here because the government had been cutting funding to the National Health Service for years, the hospitals were afraid of getting swamped with Cova patients. So they sent elderly patients back to nursing homes some broad cove with them infected other residents at least twenty, thousand nursing home residents died of covid. That's terrible in while in Germany, deaths were prevented through testing and contact tracing. The health authority in Berlin district of Hong, Kong and operator talks to man at conduct with a positive case, there are around four hundred call centers like this across Germany Peters directs this one become Austin We have traffic wardens and librarians working for us. We've recruited gardeners from parks and recreation Germany had a lot of manpower and testing to infrastructure filled with labs and university medical centers across the country. You know here the government misread the corona virus they thought it was going to spread as quickly as the flu. They didn't even try to develop a testing system where we steward he's a former British cabinet minister they were very, very confident. And slightly arrogant neb beliefs that they understood this disease better than other countries, I think the lack of scientific education amongst a lot of the British political elite meant that they were very reluctant to challenge scientists but here, Germany. Frank. A trained scientist is at the helm and Chancellor Angela Merkel. gave one of the most powerful and heartfelt speeches in her life when she made a rare national address on March. Eighteenth dusted fees above in then. Comes here. I have absolutely no doubt that we will overcome this crisis. How many victims will it claim? How many loved ones lose to a large extent? The answer lies in our own hands miracle has a doctorate in quantum chemistry, and in another speech, she patiently explain how important it was for Germany to reduce the viruses reproduction rate. Her tone was always humble and deadly serious. I'm. Doing this Icefield is off that. We are thin ice. This is a situation in which caution not over-confidence is the order of the day it really different here Johnson studied classics at Oxford University. He was president the debating society and as Prime Minister he's tried to rally the country with rhetoric. We must act like any wartime government and do whatever it takes to support our economy Johnson's Ori helped win a landslide election last year, but a pandemic, of course, not a campaign. Here's where. We store again he sees himself as somebody who is encouraging a rugby team for nineteen minute match telling them that fantastic to make them play. Well, he doesn't primarily see himself as somebody whose job is to get into uncomfortable details were chew over policy and strategy but frank, it's this chewing over of policy and strategy. This technocratic nature of the German government that may have also contributed to Germany's success hunts could is senior research fellow at Chatham House this sort of doubling down on technocracy. Populism has now been discredited by the Corona Virus. He says, that's potentially dangerous. If technocrats feel too emboldened, there might be an even bigger growth populist backlash in the future some people will blame Johnson for Britain's handling of covid campaigner. He thinks Johnson's more symptoms than 'cause captors just written a book called why the Germans do it better notes from grownup country. We've descended into believing that somehow because we always muddled through in the past muddling through is a recipe that will get us through in the future. So rob where's Germany now with crow verse? Well cases are rising deaths are not that tells us these new cases are from young people, children across the country are back in classrooms, but the German government seems so far. Okay. With the dangers of this, there remains a strong infrastructure of hospital beds, testing, tracing Germany fields, prepared and Chancellor Angela Merkel's popularity ratings are sky high eighty, six percent. WOW cases rising rapidly to we've got new strictures but Johnson actually had trouble explaining them to the nation recently the last surveys Ron Johnson is under forty percent approval rating testing capacity here still can't meet demand.

Helicopter Rescue from California Fires

"Talk about the creek fire. How was it that you? I found out about that fire. You know it's kind of ironic because it was actually social media that attracted me to it I to live in that area and was aware of the creek fire. And it was actually scrolling through social media. and. Posts that said Hey role these hikers AMA- pools. Campers pools, and I immediately picked up the phone in a caller joint operation center, and they had just officially gotten that same word and we're in the process of activating a Chinook. Doctrine to assist with families that were stranded at pools. I immediately called KIPP guiding who is one of the other pilots that perform the rescue. My name is five guiding I am a Black Hawk pilot with California. National Guard we fly age sixty Mike's and it is we're in Fresno. and. That's where I live. So tell us about the capabilities of the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter. Fantastic, versatile capable machine, and happy to fly. It's got. Lots of things that I hadn't even mastered yet. We came from the older. Lima. Aircraft and just recently upgraded the Mike Model and just learning new things about it pretty much. Every time you fly somebody's got a new way to do something because of course, most things there's there's five ways you can do it and you know the one that you do, but but the guys that use other ways to get to the same result in it's Kinda nice to know those as well. kind of a technology to have on board that helped make the flight possible for example, to you using radar alternators or hover holds or what what kinds of things are you doing? Yeah. We both of those. So we had radar timid. Hover hold we have the terrain integrated into the screen. So we see all the train that is at above my altitude. We have you know airspeed hold out to holds fully coupled flight director to help get the war cloth you if you need to concentrate on something else and I'm guessing you had night vision goggles that tell us about how well they work. We did. So we initially went out there we were under day conditions in it was extremely difficult to get around the fire in certainly, it was impossible for us to penetrate the smoke wall to get to the mammoth lakes. Reservoir. But then as it as we're out there waiting for some tankers to drop their loads, it got dark enough that we did try to gobbles in once once this goggle able, we were to see through the smoke give us another half mile ability to be able to go some valleys and some places that we were not able to do earlier in the day when we tried and had to turn back that's kind of interesting. So what you're saying is that you given the same smoke conditions, you're actually to fly better in them at night with goggles on the daytime without them. Absolutely because The smoke, you just couldn't see, but with the goggles illuminating the fire and the burning embers that gave you a little bit more depth than it. Also, you could see where the high terrain was because it was burning on both sides. So you could see the elevation was you could see where the valley was we could stay in the center of the valley and like another half mile visibility to continue. Are there any kind of engine performance considerations when you're flying in heavy smoke? Sure how you can have compressor stalls in the heated airs less performance than the Cooler? Denser air. So that's part of it not the rotors less lift when when the air is hot and thinner. So that's. Something we always thinking about and we always have performance planning that we do before we leave and then on board the aircraft performance planning. If you get some more need, you thought it was GONNA be. At this altitude of temperature, you can easily get into the onboard computer and put in the correct numbers. The experiencing gets more definite ch situational performance that's happening right here. Right now, this what you can expect the current conditions in it tells you. In meanwhile, all reas on day three of his hike in the back country when he and his friends noticed that something was wrong. As we are. One of the passes over into readies whole. We look. Looked back toward the West and we saw a huge black column of smoke and topped off with a look like senator. Cloud. And boy we studied that for a while and realized that that's a problem that looks like it's from the general area where we grow in. And we carry a GPS just in case we we never use it really, but we have just in case ran a forested area where we can't see any natural features. We WanNA make sure we're on the same route. And we pulled out the GPS and and pinpointed where it was coming from it and sure enough it was coming from. Shaver Lake. Town. We drove through on highway one, sixty eight. So. We tried not to let that get as down too much. But we knew it was fire was probably about fifteen twenty miles from where we were as the crow flies. And then that night as the sun was setting to the West, it was completely obscured in orange by the smoke and we knew that this was going to ask somehow impact our trip. By the time we got down to Heather Lake smoke started to come in the winds shifted and you know it's really just a matter of shifting winds. And the winds shifted and in came into our little bowls a lake you set in a little granite, bowl. And those things tend to truly trap smoke in Chernoff. By the afternoon we were smoked out we could we could hardly across the lake. And started to fall. We had our a Powell a discussion realize. Okay. We need to get out of here tomorrow. Will Get up five in the morning in an Alpine start head on down the mountain and get back to our cars as soon as possible and so that was. Very. Somber. Champ that night. And you could smell smoke. It was very strong and everything was covered with ash and so that night was pretty bad and woke up first thing in the morning it was the same smokey it was dark. Broke camps quickly as possible has breakfast and then headed on down mount. And of course, Johanna was back home wondering about all re what did you do after he left a Kinda, keep track of things. Well, there's a cal fire map that updates. Map the fire status in California. And because we have friends and family who have been evacuated. In the NAPA area and up in Yukio We're very familiar with this map. We we look at it. We see where we're fires growing. And there were a couple of fires prior to his departure. They weren't near where he was going. So there was no concern about that. I didn't even look at the map actually for awhile and then I looked at it. I think it was Saturday morning. and Bam. There was at big fire of Shaver Lake which was not where he was backpacking. I knew he was far enough away for it not to be like an immediate danger to him. But I could see that it was covering the road. He had to go through that very narrow road that we discussed. That, he had to go through in order to access the point where he started backpacking. And I can see that there was no way out and I could see that the fire was growing. To word his location. So that was a little bit concerning. At the same time, helicopter pilot KIP got was preparing for what was to become the first of three nights of helicopter rescues

I hear and then there or perhaps both here and this we'll take usually the best analysis suggests that they likely do not have multiple simultaneous perspectives. But the evidence is mixed we also have learned that the aliens amongst us are not individual discrete entities the belief that they are as a function of delayed evolution. The less evolved perceived themselves as separate indistinct but precedes. There is a growing awareness of the unity the singularity as earth humans. We are of the one. But our revolution is sufficiently delayed the source to prevent us from awareness of our participation in the unity only a few less have any king of the one and still few grasp. The reality of the unity are individual perspectives persist with minimal recognition of connectedness and interdependence. It is very hard to grasp and nearly impossible to meaningfully discuss. I languages quite insufficient to the task. Thinking of humanity's a single organism seems in the right direction but still insufficient epidemics more generally and the current pandemic more specifically provide clues to the essence of the unity. They gave testimony to the organic nature of humanity the infection ebbs and flows organically especially during the current pandemic. We have a heightened awareness of the extent to which we are all in this together. None of us is exempt keeping with the organic analogy. The current pandemic makes it easier to see other aspects of the unity and disregard of its significance. Risk of negative outcomes related to the virus are not evenly distributed. Some of humanity is significantly more vulnerable than others. As with any illness. Some are more able to resist the illness than others. At one level. This seems natural and to be expected more. Generally though the enhanced vulnerability of many seems to be mostly a function of conscious if not intentional neglect on disregard for example if we are a person of color and especially if our economic connectedness is weak risk from the virus. Disproportionately high the point is that some groups areas and countries are more at risk than others. This even perhaps and fair distribution of risk and vulnerability was present before the pandemic and will be thereafter. It has passed. The virus has only exacerbated the preventable human human condition and highlighted. How many more people are expected by than was previously so obvious we have drifted down a rabbit hole. It has become unavoidable. It seems whatever the initial topic for broadcasters social media or private conversations the focus turns quickly to the pandemic as understandable and probably unavoidable as this is. Let's try to draw your attention back to our original interest aliens. We know of the aliens amongst us. Even if we don't understand them very well there amongst us in likely always have been with us. We now know that they may be. But an aspect of our collective humanity albeit a more evolved aspect while our humanity continues to evolve there are forces and people amongst US putting the brakes on our evolution even more alarming what may be pressure to actively reverse our evolution our growth toward a greater sense of our humanity and interdependence is being actively resisted in suppressed as subtle as the push backward tries to be listen carefully the key to understanding his attention new where the emphasis is listen the political leaders in particular. They talk about opening business but not about getting working. People reattached the economic engine. They talk about activating sports and other entertainment venues but not about more social and recreational opportunities for everyone the emphasis is usually on the benefits for the economy and thus for the affluent in general and the wealthy particular listen carefully at the leaders and then consider who they hope will benefit most. The point is salient. Are the leaders concerned about preventing ongoing double digit unemployment or mostly concerned with preventing business failure and economic distress for the already well off is their plan to assure economic security for everyone is the government planning for increased public employment until private employment catches up of the international doors opening wide economic exchange or closing to prevent competition and innovation exchange is the movement toward more political participation or less does focus favor the many or the economy are the few who most benefit the new insight is that humanity can evolve toward more unity can also reverse evolution toward let humanity and we'll value placed on individual accumulation of wealth and power. It is easy to look at current events and priorities and conclude that things are moving backward were pre pandemic fire worse than we had imagined when we ask ourselves who will make it through this with the least calm the answer is unchanged but even more true pre pandemic drawer line from the least affluent and least powerful to the most affluent and powerful. The father one moves along that line the less harm post pandemic the rich get in the poor stay. Unemployed is to conspiracy. No very likely is no sure. There are plenty of backroom deals and under the table. Handshakes politicians are pursuing their interests and those their financial backers there are winners and losers in the political and economic games they play. Even so a grand conspiracies unlikely more likely the hundreds and probably thousands of little conspiracies occurring daily that go unnoticed. Don reported one thing we could be sure of the deal makers making deals and the politically powerful the manipulating rules and procedures to their advantage. The pandemic is a convenient cover for their continuing shenanigans. We need not be shocked when we eventually learn what was going on behind the cameras while we were worrying about the virus and how we were going to get by today. Consider this likelihood if the bottom ten percent on associated economic ladder would move up so as to make them ten percent better of each year they would still never catch up with ten percent. Who are at the top of that ladder. Evan more telling us that they would likely not move up to socio economic comfort within their lifetimes some would make the transition but most would not so. He's being poor and powerless. That and Andrea Koppel condition. It lately is not at least most of it. Symptoms can be significantly reduced. But will they be? That may be the essence of our discussion. There are alien forces in play that are opposed to the interests of our shared humanity. They are dedicated to increasing their collective wealth. Power and control over the rest of us. They are quietly consolidating their position as the virus rages covering up their actions and activities. Had they used the trillions of stimulus dollars to create public sector jobs and projects instead of providing short term payments to families and individuals to stimulus spending to benefit business. Most people would now be better off instead of still hanging on a fragile thread. Business would in turn benefit from the stable. Productivity it seems fair to conclude that there are multiple alien forces that function contrary to the interest of our collective hannity it only takes one virus to bring to the forefront just how dysfunctional the federal government is as it prioritizes business over collective well-being power and control over the common good. We like to believe that we have involved to a higher level over the generations but unfortunately that appears not to be the case truth and justice seemed to be the American way if they ever were for sure fairness and equity are not in the cards anytime soon..

"Welcome to bidders. The podcasting team has some thoughts and advice for the writers and bloggers among you. Since they are all podcasting from their homes. You will notice that. Not all audio is equal. The team is social distancing and wants to assure you that they are still here for. They know how difficult writing can be. And how much? That difficulty is amplified when trying to blog. I think you will find their tips and notions about writing and blogging helpful. As you pursue your passion please enjoy if you have any feedback for the team tweet Gary Dr Gary Crow or send a note to Gary Gary Crow Dot net. Gary will make sure the team gets your comments. An old Chinese proverb says talk doesn't Cook Rice. I suspect it is equally true quoting old. Chinese proverb doesn't much rice. Either as I consider strategies for initiating this effort on with noting activities that do not cook rice. I thinking also noting those that do not lead to a successful blog would be helpful once. I know all of the points. What's left there on the list? Here we go with the list of blogging. Why don't sit and stare doing? Most anything else is an improvement over just gaze into empty space. Of course I claim to be intensely drinking and what may be true at least a little even so writing is although I think without seriously thinking think without writing and right without thinking the right writing is pretty much impossible or at least beyond my scope for sure to. I don't need another cup of coffee. I know it would feel good to stretch and stroll up at the Coffee Pot and back. A Nice Cup of hot coffee might even perk me up. I use the time to consider more fully what I want to say. And the jolt of caffeine might stimulate a new insight or something no no coffee no stroll into the other room. No more voiding getting down to the business at hand three. I don't have any more excuses. I'm far enough into it to get down to the up to okay. I'm getting around to and no. It's time to either do it or screw it. The deal goes like this. I'll never make a post default about the blog time planning to write. It's indeed a little crazy either. I'm lazy afraid of being absolutely tried. That's a pretty pathetic verse ensured can get worse but I don't feel even a little contrite. My blog is underway and I have a post for today sewed. I can get that coffee with no further. Fear of being impolite starting a post with a quotation or some otherwise saying seems to help break the ice or sense into cliches if more likely as merely priming the creativity pump either way of quote from Sylvia. Plath struck me as useful for my present purpose and by the way everything in life is rival about if you have the outgoing guts to do it and the imagination to improvise the worst enemy to creativity self-doubt. Before using the quote I thought the Refresher on Sylvia plath might add to the pump priming so in came with a pedia to fill the need just search for Ms Plath to find her life story or at least the Wikipedia version of our life story. The story is too intense and far too sad to tell here but in Fulbright Scholarship Pulitzer Prize for poetry. Novelist poet controversial writer and getting her own stamp from the post office next year. If she said it and she did. It's true enough for me. Dot everything in life is rival about this certainly opens a world of possibilities and opportunities now all that is needed are dot the outgoing guts to do it and the imagination to improvise. There you go. That's an imagination that does reduce the challenge to rather simple terms surely helps to be brilliant and gifted as a serendipitous bonus but guts. Immagination may be doable for most of us even Pulitzer Prizes and our own stamp are not in the cards. We need only keep self-doubt arrested and far off all creative path. Writing for the ages like Shakespeare or be as clever as Aug. Nash would pretty. Well guaranteed the conversion of your writing to cash but if guts imagination are mostly what you're about remember the words of Sylvia Plath as ki all self-doubt don't you get a little suspicious. When a reporter tributes fact or other information to a reliable source or to an official who didn't want his or her name used it's kind of the same. An author uses some inside clever saying and then attributed to author unknown or perhaps anonymous. I suppose giving credit to be Franklin or a Stein will be no more than administration Paul hidden intentional but still it does seem a tad unethical. Don't you think? Let me handle my ethical dilemma. By suggesting someone really famous probably said this first but if so I cannot figure who he or she might have been. Usually reliable sources say was most likely the famous anonymous at any rate. He or she said. Don't expect anything original from an ECHO. Confession time okay. I was planning to start with this little quip from whomever thought to say it. I am piggyback my way to a blog post hoping you know. His eye was merely being an echo trying to disguise my voice. I was actually saying something. Originally my idea was to also working. Sometimes imagination pounces most lead sleep soundly in the corner. Curry the connection is argued. Being ECO isn't all that bad while one is waiting for imagination two pounds imagination or perhaps lucid news itself is but a big cat just waiting two pounds when I least expect it with their respectful night to that ethics issue. We already covered. I acknowledge Terry elements who created the metaphor illusion to our purring housing imaginations such an alive hopeful limit. My Muse may seem to be gone but may actually just be in the shadow waiting to pounce. How COOL WOULD THAT BE WAY. Cool downright stellar since I did not know about Ms Gill I I check wikipedia with sure. I googled her and there. She was along with creating great metaphors as if she met them specifically for me she created Garden Dot Com. One of my favorite places on the net ended or quickly become one of yours if it isn't already that brings us to whatever the point of this is if there is a point trying to pass off an echo as originality is hardly worth the effort does raise serious ethical issues even so a little echo now and then can be interesting and perhaps entertaining. If not overdone what's more responsibly? Echoing a convenient way to pass the time while waiting for your imagination to kick in and your Muse to pounce I echo what others say while waiting for my muse two pounds throughout this interminable day my attention does not Jiggle or Jones. I listened for the slightest indication of the purring. I'm hoping to hear it's with anxious. Anticipation I feel. My elusive muses near count. Soon big cat. You've been shadow far too long. Quit acting like arrived. Get out here where you belong. I am still on kickabout. Getting mom used to return. It occurs to me maybe analogous to exercising. My idea is that it is like when you talk about getting in the zone. They get so comfortable with running. They are able to ship. Mind states with the zone becoming Nagorny. I suspect the zone is not a place. One arrives rives quickly or easily since I have never personally been there. I can only speculate but it seems likely would have to run and run and dendritic some more for a very long time before being in zone becomes reality here is my everything after stepping into zone is exercising everything after that is being run show there probably are gifted feudal bypass the exercise part and step into zone without missing a step here. I am limiting my idea regular models who cannot bypass the exercise part the analogy for writers. Dan says right and right android some more for a very long time before being in the zone communing with ones news becomes reality. This is more familiar territory. I have personally been there and hope to return soon. Yes the gifted few probably slip into zone without all that exercise but for US mere mortals. It seems there is no shortcut to. I just taped twin this but I have no good alternative but towards the famous anonymous twice in the same post I fear you may think I am making this stuff up. I should be so smart. At any rate I commit.

"In this episode. Our discussion is going to focus on. The future is going to focus on how we get from here to there in a way that matters in a way that makes a difference in a way that gets the job done manner that we can refer to as satisfactory. Some people as you know are optimistic. They think that everything's GonNa turn out fine. Always see the sunny side of the street. They know for sure. There's a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow That can vary from a little optimistic to people that are very poly n type folks people who can't see a cloud in rainy sky and so on and so forth on the other hand there are pessimist and that two ranges from a little to a lot. Some people are mildly. Pessimistic they always have that kind of sense. That things probably are not going to work out all right but they keep on plugging other people can get to the point where they are actually immobilised By their pessimism there so negative that nothing seems like it's going to work out. Nothing seems okay even a nice day as or is probably going to get worse. Their view of the world is that if things are working on all right. Just wait because it's probably all going to go down the tubes very soon so what we see is the glass half full people the glass half empty people and also there are that small of people who have come to the conclusion that the real problem. Is that the glass is simply twice as big as it needs to be. At any rate we can look at our situation. We can look at the future. We can look at what we want to accomplish. And we can think about those positive things we can focus on those and have a good sense that things are going along okay or we can focus on the negative and the issue is that individually. We tend to do one or the other. We tend to focus more on the positive and tend to minimize the negative or we focus more on the negative and ten minimize the positive. What I would like to suggest to you is that an alternative approach is probably the best path toward a successful future if we look at the reality while rashly dealing with we find that the world is transitioning from where it was to where it's going to go situations transfer from how they have been to how they're going to be. We ARE LIVING OUR LIVES. Our families our work situations in our communities and things are moving from here to there. The key is having a clear picture of what the optimal there is. What does that optimal future look like? What is the outcome? We are hoping to experience down the road. We can then look at the situation. Not In terms of the positive and negative aspects not in terms of the strengths and weaknesses about simply in terms of those elements in the environment those elements in the situation that tend to encourage support. Ba- favorable toward that optimal outcome and things that come up from time to time things that are there now that are barriers to that optimal outcome that tend to interfere with it. Tend to detract from it. Tend to get in the way. Our goal then is not to focus more on one side or the other both are equally important. We're not going to get there without those positive things. Without those things that are supporting the optimal outcome and by the same token we're not going to get there if the things that are interfering with the things that are detracting from it continue to pull the movement over time away from the optimal outcome our goal then on the one hand of course is to support and encourage those things that our goal positive that our optimal outcome positive but as we focus on those things that are interfering in getting in the way. We have multiple options. We don't necessarily have to get rid of them. We don't have to eliminate them. We don't even necessarily have to reduce them if we can figure out some way to get around them some way to take action that will begin to neutralize their negative effect on her outcome off. We're going to do is to manage our environment and all were ever doing is looking for the path to the goal the path to the optimal outcome and dealing on a day to day basis on the one hand with those things that supported encouraged the outcome. We want to be sure that we protect and value and do what we can do to make sure they stay in place. And on the other hand we need to figure out continuing strategies to deal with cope with get around eliminate move otherwise influence the negative elements in a way that backs them off of their interfering effect on the optimal com. Or simply. Lets US get around them to ignore them A lot of the things that we think are going to be serious problems. Turn out not to be any problem at all. The real issues tend to be something else and we need to be constantly scanning our environment for opportunities to further outcome but also opportunities to take action or decide that no action is needed in order to deal with cope with manage. If you will those things that are interfering with potentially negative in relationship to the optimal outcome we want life than is a management opportunity. Not a problem. Solving opportunity per se. Thanks for joining us for Dr Gary Crow presents a do tidbits to get in touch emailed Gary Gary Crow Dot net visit.

"You are joining Dr Gary Crow Presents Audio tidbits for opinion learning just for fun. Gary is a retired. Human Services Administrator author trainer and Speaker was joined by the PODCASTING team to bring you perspectives. Chips added insights about people doing their best to do their best for others. The team mixes there tidbits with music from Kevin Lee cloud and special segments. Just for fun please relax and enjoy. What are the key steps for any leader or for anyone who doesn't want to simply maintain the status quo? Let's think about that. I what do you want to happen? There are three possibilities. You may want things to improve or get better next. You may want things to change or be different in some way you define. Finally you may want to prevent something from happening or prevent some danger or risk from actualising in short you want to improve change or prevent sure you may want to achieve more than one of these outcomes at the same time. Second take a close look at how things are right now. List everything that will be different. When you achieve one or more of the outcomes in the first step what will be different when things improve when things change or when the danger or risk have been prevented third step to gives you a list of things that have to be changed or modified for each of those action elements. What will it take to change? Or modify each of those elements that gives you a step-by-step strategy for disrupting the status quo by changing or realigning each of the items on the list from step two to align with the new status from step one it's much like remodeling a house you. I envisioned the newly remodeled and undetermined. What needs to be changed or modified in the original house along with specifying what stays unchanged you develop a strategy for making the needed changes or modifications when we are dissatisfied with the status quo the temptation to just. Do something can be very hard to resist too often. People can't hold back. They do this or that and before they understand what is happening. Instead of things being better they are a mess are worse than they were before anything was done to improve change or prevent there is an additional factor. That is easily overlook. Usually we can't shut down things while we are improving changing or preventing with our families most organizations or other ongoing entities. We can't put things on hold even though we are dissatisfied with the status quo. There are continuing responsibilities. That require our attention even with remodeling a house. We may still need to live there while the remodeling is happening. We normally need to be sure that our activities directed to improving changing or preventing. Don't disrupt or destabilize. The status quo so much that things stop working or become dysfunctional. The requirement not to cause the status quo crash means that the order of intervention. And how rapidly it happens to be managed in relation to ensuring that the disruption in the status quo is also carefully managed. The simple idea is to cause as little harm or inconvenience as possible. Let's summarize what do you want to improve? Change or prevent specifically what elements will be changed or replaced. Once you have achieved what you want. What is your strategy for changing or replacing each of the elements? How will you assure minimal inconvenience or harm no matter what the scale of your leadership challenge is your task is to incorporate the four points in the order listed into your intervention there are no good alternatives or shortcuts? You will need to be sure that the necessary resources and expertise are there at each step along the way but the steps are always the same. And are not negotiable. Now you know so there you go.

"You cannot get anything done yourself. Your interests are not the interests of similar deals. The best way to think about power to think about it as a game a game with rules and moves. No one ever succeeded in business by sitting quietly at their desk and doing what they are told. Do everything you do as if it were. The only thing that mattered from Nancy Campbell when dealing with a challenging person analyze the problem and not the person. What are you expecting the person to do? What is an acceptable response? Specifically what is the difference between what you expect and what they are doing? Start by asking the person the problem they will likely tell you. Focus more on what the person is doing right and less on what they are doing wrong. Be SURE TO FOLLOW UP. Give feedback how you say. Something is often more important than what you say.

Do you think about your response while the other person talking a you often disinterested in what the other person is saying this usually reflects it as interest in the person as well as in what they are saying. Do you have preconceived thoughts opinions and ideas as soon as your mind senses similarities. It stops searching for differences. If you always judge new experiences based on past experiences you will never have any new experiences. Do you interrupt people before they have finished talking thinking about what you want to say. While they're talking is a version of the same behavior from Ralph Johnson.

Winds think there is always something they can do. Do not sit a single win-lose goal set range of success criteria.

Just because you have it in writing does not mean you have a contract just because you did not sign anything does not mean you have not made a deal no matter what the amount be sure you understand everything to which you are agreeing including the fine print and what the other person thinks you are agreeing to.

"I you know you still that still doesn't leave <hes> you you know the the part of your brain that catalogues all those things so in that flips when merrin morris or something like that walks into this barn and they go oh my gosh. I can't believe i'm standing in the same room about to play music with sheryl. Crow is at an odd thing for you. It's an odd thing when somebody walks in and sale you inspire inspire me. I can't believe i'm here. I'm working with you and i immediately my knee. Jerk is to go back. Oh thanks i mean i'm just stealing from these people back here and i i do. That's that's my knee jerk but it is getting used to now <hes> how good it feels to know that i've been an inspiration to eh. Two young artists particularly young women. I mean my my sole objective. In the last few years is to try to instruments into women's hands again. I try to get them to a piano guitar too right to to be alone in their thoughts and actually get them down you know and it's it's it's it's different now with so many writers in a room and everybody's conscientious about the six second attention span so you've got fifteen riders on stuff and we need those troubadours we need those singer songwriters and that's why it's great to have brandy on the record and to have margo and to have <hes> chris stapleton have jerry clark junior to have these people that are truth tellers in that are are clearly tied to their references and mariners. You know an extension. I think of stevie and me and it's fun. It makes me feel good about the future so a lot of people heard through various interviews that you've given that this is your last album and they freaked out. There like sheryl crow's going away. She's done with with music so i'm here on behalf of the american people to stage an intervention. We need to share it but you're not going away. You're just gonna stop making making entire album we had i had an experience last year. Where i put out a call wouldn't wanna be like you feature. Anne clarke another amazing artists and total truth teller and it was so wonderful to be able to just put it out in the immediate because it really pertained to what was going on just in america large with our inability to accept the truth as being powerful and important and instead of the newest sense that it is becoming and it was for for me it felt great to be able to just put it out and not have to wait for a full body of work to be completed with the whole planet. What's the single and all that i feel like in this day and age and as much such as i've loved albums people really cherry pick songs and they make their own playlists and so if feels good for me to say this is this this is really the summation of my my whole life creatively and even on a personal note and be able to pay it forward as well and from here on out just to but songs out that i feel like okay this has meaning right now and people can make their own show growth albums. You'll still touring out definitely still tour. You're what i know best. My twelve year old was totally bummed out when he heard i wasn't gonna to earning more. We're not gonna tour mom. No i love the road. He's been reading the internet to thinks you're retired. Let me tell you what he has not been. Reading is the internet i'm like. I'm like the police good job very very smart. That's very smart no social media in our house so it was that commentary the music business right now which is that it's not worth it in some ways to put out uh-huh tire album that is not a commentary on the music business that is a commentary on technology and it's also commentary on the way people now expect to receive their music which just through a streaming service. It's not a full body of work. It's what they you're on the radio it. You know they're still a lot of young people that are buying vinyl and that are going on different sides to find music. That's left of center. I mean there's just a multitude of ways you can buy music. It's difficult now to actually download the whole record but this is just me and i tell every young artist make create a body of work because you wanna you wanna play you wanna have a life of playing songs that have meaning for you that aren't just ahead and that you're going to connect with your audience. I'm done no no you're not you're not alone in this thinking which is that it makes more sense to put out a single but it used to be as you know yeah. Well you want to tell a story through fourteen or sixteen tracks or whatever it is <hes> yeah. There's something lost in not having as much of that anymore well. Oh i think it is i mean i it would be as if every rider now just wrote short stories. Are i mean to be perfectly honest. I think there is a great metaphor and looking at the news the way the newspaper is it's archaic or obsolete by the end of the day whereas everything is just so immediate. It's like i'm writing a newspaper with a big or of a novel with the beginning in middle and end in an arc and redemption and all these different experiences in an album when really a tweet is what people are going to uh-huh. That's what they're going to take with them obviously and <hes> it makes me sad and that's why this is felt good to say. I don't know how would follow this up this. This is my statement yeah. I may not have some sadness over. The fact that i feel like albums are too much for people to actually hold. It's too much for him to sit down and spend the time to actually just enjoy being in a moment same with when you got and you play for people in there like this right now instead of watching yeah but that's what they do because it's instinct now yeah. They want to show somebody that they were here. Watch it some bad quality video. They showed later but yeah. That's where we are so the headline though is not retiring from music want everybody to see that that's right. I'm i'm not i am not retiring from music is the only thing i do. Well okay. Tell me more about this room because your last two albums right have been reported is rain this space barn. What do you love about making music. I love that is at the end of my driveway. <hes> <hes> no i mean i'm mad fletcher of weird stuff nine year olds consulate mom. Why don't we live in a house with pictures of dead people all but <hes> i just i love the fact that it's kind of an inspiring place to walk into and actually while we were making this record the threads record we made the be myself. I self record in like in the course of three and a half weeks during school hours so it's nice to be able to drop the kids off. Come down here work mark create. Go pick my kids. They come back for an hour and hang out. We dinner musicians. It's very very social place and yet my kids get to witness that it actually is work that there is work that goes into me walking out on stage and having people be excited and all that there is something that happens before that that is the culmination of years of practice and so they're not so apt to argue argue over their PR practicing now that they know that oh it can lead to something cool but we've had great people in here. We've had bluegrass players. We've had <hes> chris stapleton spin in here. Air keith bourbons written in here casey must graves made her record. Here actually didn't know that yeah. I was reading the research that is i mean. It's fun to be able to offer it up and say this is a sanctuary where the industry is not allowed. You can come in here and just explore and discover and just inspired to your kids appreciate what you do for a living. Do they get that mom's a a big music star and are they interested in it to day. My kids leads. I don't think until it'd be myself really understood that it was work a lot of times. They felt like it was just something. That kind of was an annoying thing. That took me away like if i ever put on makeup they'd be like. Are you going to work. You know <hes> but now they're i mean i think it's flipped a little bit like this summer. We went on the road and they both every show brought out guitars. They're very involved. They wanna be a part of it. They would go behind the keyboards and play tambourines and play drums percussion except mike and everything and they got paid so that could be part of it under five dollars a gig halfway through the summer my nine year olds at mom. I'm thinking that we could do a flat fee of one hundred bucks like he's my email account other ones like the feeling he wants to be bass player. He wants to play my band when he's not he's like. I said you should really do the math because you're you get five bucks a gig. We're actually doing in more than twenty gigs so he came back mom one hundred thirty five and we can get half of it but during the break and have it at the end of this hour so he's going to be an agent agent if not a museum or a lawyer yeah. That's fun that they get to play along with you and see what you do. They do and i mean honestly. It has been the the one thing that has above all not only a given me a spark on stage with the fact that i've so much gratitude that at my age i'm still doing what i'm doing a love my band. I love this new surge of energy. That's come away. I guess by being around as long as i have. I have a lot of young people everywhere because they've grown up with appearance playing music and that's been exhilarating and i've gotten to show my kids. The world you know through first timers is so it's kind of a win win pretty good deal. I was reading the liner notes on the way over here where you kind of explain in your relationship with every artists but my favorite part was the first part where you talk about your your parents and your hometown and where all this started as you said three three stop light town in missouri but it seems to me there was music in your house from the minute you were born basically with your mom and your dad playing music as well yeah and i i mean i would say that probably back. Then music was in everybody's house music was very social. You had people over you play records you know and <hes> <hes> my parents love music so much that they actually played with their friends in a swing band and they would come home. You know after a gig and they would stay up. Everybody drank and everybody smoked and they would play the magnavox. They'd play <hes> you know all kinds of music whatever was happening at the time they'd also play a lot lot of big band stuff and they play along they'd sing they dance.

"crow" Discussed on Tumble: A Science Podcast for Kids

"So there's a reason why crow might scream their head off at a person if they think it's dangerous. Yeah. In Keighley wanted to know if that's the reason why crows would hold funerals. And so the study I conducted looked at whether or not danger learning was a motivation for this behavior specifically with respect to whether or not that they learn the place where they find Ed crows. Maybe that place is dangerous. And if they're learning novel predators new predators in association with those dead bodies. So crows are also finding a dead crow somewhere with a person this is getting very weird the job of the creepy person. In the mask was to hold a Taxidermied crow somewhere in a public park could dead crow. That's been stuffed exactly on one day. We would introduce somebody holding a dead crow. And then the next week that person would come back, and we'd see how the crows responded the first visit was intended to establish the person as being dangerous in the second. Visit with to see if the crows recognize them later one of the ways that we measured whether or not crows war recognizing that person when they saw them again as a predator is is by that alarm call. So the crows were screaming because they actually did recognize the person. Yes. And here's where we get to the reason behind the mask. So when I was doing my study, I relied entirely on volunteers to be those those people out there holding the debt crow or coming back, so Kelly ran this experiment Huns and tons of times with lots of different crows and lots of different locations. She worked fifteen hours a day during the study, and she couldn't do all the work by yourself. If Stacy helped me on the day where we presented the dead crow that following week when it was time to send that person backout. Stacey might not be available. Maybe she had a conflict but by wearing masks. We eliminate that problem. So even if it's Joe that's available the next week. He just puts that mask on that Stacey war, and we can still ask this question about crows recognizing faces. So the mass are not about scaring, the crows. It's about making it. So that they can recognize the people. Yeah. These weren't like Halloween masks they were based on real people's faces. It's actually totally unintentional that they're really scary. Looking. Kelly showed me one over video chat. So this is Linda. Oh, okay. So tell me what does this mass quickly? It looks like what an alien would look like if they were pretending to be human. I have noticed that humans like to wear clothes are so wear some clothes to planned in. The man's goes holes for the eyes in a full wig. But the herald the week looks like it's never been combed. And in the face kind of hangs loose. We off Kelly's face which gives her kind of a horror movie, look scary. For crows scary for people. There were actually six of these masks made. This is Michelle and you'll see Michelle fits a lot more like she shared. It's still kind of Halloween scary. But yes, it looks less flappy. But yeah, someone I would sit down next to on a park bench considering I did my studies near a lot of park benches. It was those abroad. Oh, scientists doing weird things in public parks. I know to kind of try and dispel the weirdness. Kelly had all the volunteers hang big signs around their neck. That said crow study, gosh, I'm not sure if that would be comforting. I think I'd still call the cops. Yes. Plenty of Parker's ended up calling the cops. Yes. I regularly interactive with officers of the law. You know, I don't know if I ever would have imagined when I was thinking about what scientists do on a daily basis that just showing up at parks wearing a creepy mask and unkempt wig. Well, having crow scream at you would be just like an integral part of the scientific process. It was for this experiment. And I have to note that no crow study, here's wherever arrested. What's good? All right. So do you think that we've figured out why a flock of crows with chasing person in a mask screaming their heads off?.
