"Artisans practice their craft in a dramatic open air setting perched on a mesa, surrounded by cliffs of basalt rock. Despite the extremes of the desert climate, clever design makes for a comfortable workspace. The foundry itself is in what's called an apps, which is a half dome. And it's on a south facing axis to utilize passive solar. So in the summer when the sun is higher in the sky, the apps provide shade for our workspace and in the winter as the sun gets lower and lower in the sky, the sun creeps more and more into the workspace and heats it and keeps us toasty. So I'll walk up to our ceramic studio, which is also in an apps and in the winter, the ceramics artisans will be in here in flip flops and shorts. So that's just all it works pretty well in that regard, but the architecture is all concrete and a lot of rounded arching forms that are really, really unique in terms of having a foundry space in soft architecture because most boundaries are in kind of warehouse spaces where you don't have a view. You can't see outside, there's not really windows, it's very dark and dank and ours being open air is absolutely magical. Our foundry looks out into what's called a wash, which is a dry creek bed. And kind of a ravine on both sides. And so we look out into this beautiful high desert landscape full of Juniper and native grasses and prickly pear cactus. Basically, as far as you can see to the horizon, we've got cows that free range on the other side of the mesa when it's rainy and when it's rained north of here are creek bed flows and so we have a little babbling brook underneath our foundry and cypress trees all around and as you walk up and out of the foundry onto the rest of site, there's Mediterranean cypress and olive and fig trees and architecture that looks

You got a nod and a smile. No matter what shit's going down. And I haven't got time for that. I'll gladly lose people for being outspoken and honest about something, then have clinger ons that just fucking add zero value to my life and I think this past week we're I've been heavily fucking depressed. I think I'm at a point now where I'm going to have to be quite zero tolerance if you add to the negativity, you're gone, I'm getting rid of if you cause me any sort of stress or. If because of my ADHD or whatever, I hyper fixate on the negative shit around you, I'm not having you in my space, so I'm going to I am focusing or I'm going to focus at just reducing the size of my circles. Because I don't want to be involved in drama. I don't want to be involved in politics. You know what? I've lost connections because of certain drama and politics. And you know, maybe they weren't as genuine as the initially were in the first place because again they could have approached me rather than just fucking cutting me.

"I get my patients using pure essential oils. I always make sure it's one that they like the smell of. Of course, if they don't like it and I feel it's really going to be important. I have them apply it to the bottom of their feet. You don't have to smell and it's still going to work. But if they like the way it smells, they're going to use it more often. I give them usually their own personalized diaphragmatic breath treatment, something from yoga. I remind them about meditation, apps, a splashing cold water on the face. Humming, there are a lot of different techniques that can be used for stimulating the vagus nerve for ton of the vagus nerve for putting the parasympathetic system back in charge so that we can actually take a full deep breath. We can relax our shoulders. We can digest our food. And we can find that calm in our lives. Yeah. How often should we be aiming to be in that parasympathetic mood? I wonder if there's any research done on how that's off great question. The parasympathetic versus fight or flight versus us now, you know? And Sam, I think we're on the cutting edge of a great question. I think that's for the next research. Yeah. You know those fitness bracelets that people wear? Does that track and those tell if you are in parasympathetic? Yes. Some of them do a pretty good job of that. And there are we talked about the electrocardiogram can measure heart rate variability. So and heart rate variability is usually not something that's going to change. Although, I mean, it can change. It's not going to change immediately. That's interesting. Yes. Well, something you had brought up earlier was good stress. So I'm thinking people are curious about what does she mean by good stress or what you call EU stress? Tell us about that. Yes. So good stress would be planning for a party. It would be excited about something wonderful that's going to happen. For athletes, you stress or good stress would be, you know, running that marathon, you know, and or even training for it. The birth of a baby, a wedding. These are all you stresses. So it takes you out, you know, it's going to increase the heart rate it's going to get everything going. And of course, we don't want to we don't want to take away these wonderful things. We want a beautiful balance. I would say we want to be an ideally. I would say we'd want to be in parasympathetic 70, 75% of the time. I think that's why it's suggested that we have meditation morning and evening some cultures advise that forest bathing. We being out in nature and I think that there are a lot of tools out there that haven't even been. You know, getting a massage. Connecting with your Friends. Those are all ways that we, that we soothe ourselves that we help our vagus nerve. And I think that it's easy to use to utilize essential oils. I mean, when my patients ask me, well, how often do you use them? It's like, well, I start my day with essential oils. I end my day with essential oils because I have oils that help me wake up. I have oils that soothe me and prepare me for sleep. And then I have oils to use throughout the day. So there, essential oils are a very important part of my life. So it's easy for me to talk about them. What are some of your personal favorites that you like to wake up to and go to sleep with? Well, when I wake up, I love peppermint and cypress together. I will, I just find that's great. And bergamot, bergamot actually has been shown to reduce cortisol levels. So I feel that it's makes me happy while keeping me calm. That's that nice mix that we like to have. Of course, vetiver is great any time because not only is it centering, grounding, I love it combined with lavender. I have a lavender roll on that I use at bedtime. Vetiver is also been shown to greatly reduce the effects of ADD with kids and adults. So it's interesting that hear this grounding calming oil. You know, that helps us sleep also helps us focus. It's like it's taking away the distractions. That makes absolute sense when we're distracted or our bodies or our minds are trying to do a billion different things. We can't focus on things in front of us. Of course, every everyone who knows about how amazing frankincense is, you know, has frankincense nearby. I always say that you want to go to headquarters. You want to deal with the brain. You use frankincense. You know, it just goes right to assisting the nervous system and amazing ways. And then there are so many great oils that blend well with it. Personally, I love the tree based oils. Frankincense, sandalwood. Cedar cypress, the furs. Doesn't it feel like there's just this inherent wisdom with the tree oils? It does. Yeah, it really does. And connection rarely do you find a tree by itself? So it's about community too. Support for our show comes from athletic greens. This partner has a product I use literally every day. I started taking athletic greens because I was really tired of having to take.

Our first one is sophomore. David jackson he is from cypress texas and is currently second on the team in points with three goals and three assists for a total of nine points overall so when we compare the forwards and the midfielders. What are some things that midfielder needs to be able to do that. A little bit different from the forward in order to be effective. So i mean just basically amid fielder especially this town Hair that. I think we're about to talk to quilt and jackson They kind of play in tandem with jackson playing more of an attacking midfielder role in Who playing more of a defensive midfielder rolm foot but in both of their cases midfielders have more defensive responsibilities or they have defensive responsibilities at the floor. don't have they have very much. The same skill set when when they're on the ball but when they're not on the ball they've gotta get back behind the ball and chill defensive roles but i really liked the way that these two guys.

I was i was totally soldiering and buying into that and When i realized that i could still write and i had the ability to learn how to do more and and and be more creative with it. Yeah that that sort of took me out of the mindset like that bullshit on the street and is in all that i can do i can do more and this is it right here so is sort of little by little it took me a while to shake it all off but Little by little. I started being more present in the studio than than on the street in my friends on the street understood that they never you know. Tried to reel me back in or give me a guilt trip for not being there. They were always supportive. Like a go do that. You don't hear that very often go do that. That's better the nist and you know that. I was fortunate in now house. Blessed did so what year was cypress hill that they form and you got form in eighty eight. Yeah well you know sent an. I've known each other since nineteen eighty-four and we met mugs. And i think eighty five or eighty six and then you know we start taking it serious. In maybe eighty seven known. Ninety seven probably eighty nine in maybe through eighty eight to ninety one when we got signed. That's what we've really started focusing in and trying to make something. It took us three four years before we add anything that was you know worth worth putting our name on. But then you know we just sort of heard Not too long ago when our thirty year anniversary came came up just before that we were filming our documentary. That's coming out next year in mugs broke out. Some of those old demos in and my voice is completely different. At the time. I it was before i figured out how to pitch my voice up in in make it a little bit different so it could cut through and you know. The demos were bad Even even with my different tone. You know i guess we were just striving for more. So what we were doing at that. Time wasn't enough but here and back. It wasn't bad he could hear the foundations of where we were. Gonna you know we would eventually go and It was just a trip to see that because you know you forget about those songs. Those songs are far behind you especially when they're not on the album but Yeah you know it took. It took three to four years to actually make the first album and The we put a lot into that a lot of focus a lot of effort. We shut everybody. That was negative to us out. Didn't allow them to be around. No no people that we're going to try to second guess us we just hunker down us. Three in the studio and Focused in our friends understood that they allowed us. That that Room to be creative in do what we were gonna do. Brian kevin question i did. I always wondered as you speak of the early days. You guys came up in those early days of gangsta rap. Why was making a big push to the mainstream. You actually live that life could you. I always i always imagine there were guys who live at life and wrapped about it and guys who maybe as we say were fronting or could you could you. Could you tell who was. Maybe not the real deal. Who was the real deal like movies. There's great actors so you just don't know until someone calls someone out on that and like man. That dude went to this school. He grew up. Here never lived that life. You know 'cause none of us really do investigative work on the sixth sense about it or you know like put it this way right If you've lived that life you're only going to tell so much of the story because if you're if you're talking limitations right you're only gonna you're gonna tell so much when someone is way like beyond graphic in that story of the gangster shit. They're their pop and they're doing too much Just anyone anyone wrap a so called true story until you everything look. The police listened to these songs. Now the fbi. Let's listen to these songs now. They all do dan. How the guy that's how the guy got popped with the checks coming in right the guy with eight rap and about if fraud from cova check coming in and they they they listen and they watch in. It would be stupid if someone to like. Just tell on themselves on assault and and and in back in the day before you had all this all the technology that we have in these platforms. Yeah you could see when someone was was embellishing because you know a real gangster gonna sit there and tell on himself. That's a good point. You just scenario in a couple little things but he ain't going to be like descriptive because then you know your outta here. Well thank stitching on yourself. Think about how little you know about your dad over truck rolling stone man. i've probably got brothers enlisted. I know of. I got twelve brothers and sisters half brothers and sisters..

"Three me right so i typed in my mother's information in when her information came up came up with the last name i had never heard before and it was a greek last name. It was And i remember here in the story. You know of of how it you don't. She came out here. And i remember that my mother actually spoke She knew how to read and write and understand a greek. She couldn't really speak it but she understood. It could read it right it and all that stuff. I used to see these these books in the greek language. Just you know. Chilling out there. And i never understood it but you know when when i recall some of the story and then seeing that yeah. That was totally how she got in here. They've fronted like this was the captain's wife you know. And they were coming from off of a trip and you know he got her in and you know. Got her to california to my cousin or you know her niece and That's that's how she got here. How well a couple of things first off you know. there's a lottery to basically you know. Get out of cuba again as a nation. There's a lottery to go to canada from the united states like well. I signed my kids. My my neighbors cancer signed with us at some point so it should think about what's going on here. Yes that people are so fucking to leave the place you've created that they'll go on inner tubes and shark-infested water and get picked up by greek fishermen in think about this right then they want you to leave with nothing right. So you're only leave with what you can take all your credential so like if you're a professor or a physicist or a lawyer or a doctor they were stripping all that of you and your credentials end and your citizenship and now you know you're a traitor because you chose to go somewhere else you know so allow these guys that in a lotta these men and women that came with an education and they were doctors and lawyers in in all the things i mentioned. They couldn't come and get those jobs in the united states because their credentials were invalidated. And you know some of them world. They're not going to go through that whole process to get their licensing law or to be a doctor and it just basically wiped everything that they had worked for. You know to go somewhere else. And and that's that's how bad it was people. Were willing to give that up and just be like you know what we're not dealing with this. We're outta here first first lottery. Ball that pops up we are out Speaking of cuba first off. I had a good idea. Which is my son. Becomes a loser and a cabdriver. I'm going to tell them to adopt like an iranian accent and explained that he was physician. I was an engineer and physician and then everyone all sudden go from the biggest loser ever to. I have great respect for what you've done you here. So i'll i'll work on that with him when we get home but the struck me that about six eight months ago there was a whole cuban thing and they shut down the internet and we were gonna get the internet turn back on cuba and i don't know where the fuck that story went. You guys remember that just a few months ago. Haina i deliver that along with the the like sonar. Terrorism will yeah. There's there's fat that was a crazy. One too crazy is the. I don't know what we can do to get. The internet turned back onto the cubans. It's also so insane. Because when fidel castro was alive. I was like my god. You've been fifty years at the helm of this shit like running a nation for fifty. I mean could you imagine if like richard nixon office in nineteen seventy two. And he's still in charge. You know what i mean. But then he dies is brother thanks over. It's like literally never ending. Yeah it's it's it's a cycle. You know that that keeps repeating itself. Because it's it's allowed to eat now. These people haven't really seen like what freedom is in in what it is to live a a an actual life of freedom right. I'm being sure we paid for our freedoms and there's a lot of lot of crap we got to put up with for it. But i mean they've never seen it right and it's because they're not allowed to because if you have any thoughts of oh this is what it should be like That's like contagious. Catches like fire and other people start questioning like. Why don't we have this or why aren't we doing this. Why are we so far behind. They don't know how far behind they are. It's it's like What was the best analogy when you take a person like. Let's just say a quaker right and they have this one weekend who yeah that they get to go. See what the real world is doing and some of them. Don't wanna come back right. You get a taste of that that that that the city life or they're like you know what i wanna do. This high ain't going back to that in and you know if they seen what's what's happening everywhere else in how far they behind they are. Yeah they're going to want more and and you know that government in they don't have enough to give them. I mean it's north korea. I'm i'm looking here. Just keywords shutting down internet cuba. That story was huge in the middle of july with npr and wall street journal every not a peep since then. Yeah we move. We got pretty fast cycle around here so your mom comes out. She ends up in southern california. Dad's story crazier. I think kinda yeah talking about him getting shot twelve times are essentially that facination attempt. That wasn't a liquor store robbery. Gone wrong no no wasn't I as a kid. I didn't know what my father was into. I knew that he drove trucks. And i knew that he knew a lot of people. A lot of places and You know. I was just sort of oblivious to it. I you know and he was involved. Was grazie obviously and what happened was a us working with the solar gentlemen. You know for a long time and it was like He was disguised. Sort of mentor or the guy was his mentor. My my father's tour they had worked together for a long time in trucking and probably some other things and You know other people around them were always trying to stir shit up between them. And and i guess some one of A a mutual acquaintance told the older gentlemen. Like hey man. This guy's trying to get over on you. He's doing this. And that. and the other and blah blah blah and none of it was going on they just when a power struggle is happening with with with some crazy things you know and you want to separate. Two entities did are loyal to each other and create things. You know this this is what happens. He shot you're down Yet old man actually shot my father. You know he he was he's they you know. Somebody created this this thing between them and so this story goes is this ship program. Heffer all you senator complaining. I work forty hours. And all i do is get coffee for him. I don't even get paid shut. Your hole can go a lot worse than that goes with much worse than that. Right so You know they hit dan gun on many runs together in terms of you know convoy type things with the trucking and stuff like that This guy the older guy had my my my older brothers toolbox from a run. They had They had made and that's what he used to come on in to my father shop. You know my father knew there was some sort of tension and You know he was on guard apparently and The guy came in that you know trying to be like. Hey look we don't have a problem. Were good. I came to bring your your son's toolbox. You know i had it from the last run and these are big ass toolboxes. I mean these are for for semi trucks So they're they're you've you've seen boxes out of my no young well educated in this right and you know it's an older guys..

You know some boys back here that we go way back leaving lived close to each other once upon a time and It was just a matter of time before this happened. I know it's great. Hang around long enough. Everything clinging onto it. I was i wanted to talk about your certa crazy life. You're family's crazy life. That took a deep dive into Before the show went on the air today about your mom and cuba and your dad and god knows what with your dad. But i also thought about this time you did love line and we went out in the parking lot and he gave me a huge bag of weed. Is that sound to you. Oh yeah. I remember that know after this. Get the address to where you're at and send you bigger bagging. So you grew up out here. I grew up out here. Were about the same age and we'd like had kind of a lot of similarities but also very different grownup is well. Your mom fled cuba. Can we talk about that story. Yeah absolutely I believe she fled cuba and sixty eight You know because she. She was imprisoned at that time because she was with a group. That was Anti-castro at the time. And you know she was out there doing whatever they were planning to do and and got arrested and she was in there for a year or two and does she had a uncle that worked in the prison and she didn't really know that ankle but she knew she had somebody that That was family that worked there. She just didn't know who it was and he approached her and said. Hey listen you need to get out of here. I'm going to help you get out but you need to get off the island. So he sort of helped her on scituate certain things while she was locked up he put certain shit into place. Excuse me sorry about that. He's put certain things in place and found her way out in the once. Once she got out she was on her own. So yes she she had Get out of there and She got out at sixty eight and it wasn't easy for her. She i mean she was alone. She had to do all this by herself. And she She had an accident while this was happening cracked her head scaling a wall or fence of some sort. But she you know she's pretty relentless and how strong willed so she. she made it to whatever raft. That was hiding somewhere and got out into the open. Ocean head cracked and drifting for a day before a fishing boat saul her drifting along. You know as a guy. Not that i went through the same perils. Your mom went through. But i recently made a trip to catalina clean. He can he can identify. Adalina is twenty six miles away from long beach and when you get out in the middle of the ocean you're in the middle of the ocean. Yeah this is ninety miles. I think cuba to florida. Which last time. I checked is about three. And a half times as far as Catalina i couldn't imagine getting into a raft and just sort of pushing off in the general direction and must be like allow you know you think about it. Many have done that throughout the last Wow i don't know how many years i mean people been trying to get off that island for a long time and they get off whatever way they can and the only reason they do that is because it's it's bad over there you know Right obviously so they'll do what they can and you know even at risking their own lives you know. There's there's been a like you look at does that kid's name elian gonzalez and whatever and You know his. His mother was food for the sharks. She risked it to get him over here for them to let them go back. That was the craziest thing. So so your mom lands in florida. She must have. I mean there's a strong cuban contingent over there. She must add some support over there. But at some point she's gotta get out to california and meet your dad right. Yeah i think what what happened was years years earlier One of my cousins came with another family because cuba has a lottery in. That's house and dog in his family. got to the. Us is that did cuba the lottery based off of Your kids so if you have a number of kids they're all put into this lottery thing. It happens out of no every year or something like that every couple years and My my my family's neighbor came up on that lottery but That lady's daughter had passed away. You know early on. And you know the consensus there or the census there you know. It's not like over. Here is not constantly updated so you could actually sneak another person onto you. Know that family so like they. They brought my cousin to america in that lottery with with with the neighbors family in then my my aunt center my aunt center because she knew things. We're going to get bad out there. And she wanted her daughter to have a better life so she sends my cousin with this family. You know years before so. My mother has My mother has a A niece out here at that time there. Relatively around the They're you know they're close to the same age at this point. you know. Her cousin had been out here for a number of years and had adapted learn english. And you know she had moved to california with that family that She came she came with and so when my mother made it out here that was her one contact and she was in california and i guess they made arrangements for my mother to come out to california. Now the thing is my mother go through florida. She went through new york because the fishing boat that that found her drifting they didn't go to Miami they went all the way up to port in new york for some reason. It was a greek. A captain of the boat In a day eight they sort of fronted in acted like he was her wife in so that she could get in. And so you know.

I didn't grow up with them. The gangstar from la right right but they listen to gangster and they listened to tang. Okay let me check out. Tang like i had to. I really got into it by learning from the people who were on the ground cypher. In you know what i mean. Those are the people that i grew up with some hip hop with during the activists community vast when i learned more about underground hip hop. And i love you like the term backpacker because it has multiple connotations. And depending on where you're at and where you're from. They mean different things like in la backpack. Backpacker isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just means you're part of like the underground ground community project blowed or the good life stuff like which offers a documentary on netflix netflix.

The idea is that the more efficient architecture makes for up for the drop in cores in threads but until would like you to ignore all of that and pay more attention to instructions per cycle because those are nineteen percent better now and that's fair that's fair since most games don't use multiple cores anyway and the new top chip reaches up to five point three gigahertz on a single core until touted a fourteen percent improvement on flight simulator at ten eighty p even on multi core functions to- claims it's eighty eight percent faster than its last gen ed video editing and thirty five percent faster than is rising nine thousand nine hundred x so the independent benchmarks will be important.

"Many americans are seeing the cost of climate change in their flood. Insurance rates are rising by a lot in some places and now there's a federal program that offers discounts but not on communities are taking full advantage of it. Sam turkey of member station w. h. reports william jennings and his wife have lived in their home in virginia beach for the last thirty seven years and their plan was to stain it through retirement. I really like my house. A two story home swimming pool in the backyard in recent years jennings neighborhood has flooded more and more including his house once. His mortgage requires debate annual flood insurance about twenty four hundred dollars. Now it's going up eighteen percent july. He says soon keeping his home may not be affordable. Yeah i don't wanna think about that. One of my neighbors said they just walk away from their home and Just leave and let the bank take it. Whether jennings walks away could depend on. How much virginia beach invest in a little known federal program. It's called the community reading system or c. r. s the more cities due to reduce flooding and spread awareness about it the bigger discount. Their residents can get on flood insurance mary. Carson stiff is with virginia environmental nonprofit watch signs that say turn around. Don't drown alerting. People not to drive through flood water. Having requirements for structures to be built up is something that earns lot of points according to the federal emergency management agency. More than fifteen hundred communities nationwide participate in the sierras. It can save people living in flood prone areas hundreds of dollars a year in virginia. James city county has gone up to a twenty five percent discount. These are clippers. Sneeze darryl cooke works with the program for the county. He walks through cypress swamp. Tall slender cheese are everywhere and fallen leaves. Cover the muddy ground this area floods when it rains. Cook says james city county gop points for restricting development here so loud to flood unimpeded doesn't damage any structures or like that. The community rating system has been running since nineteen ninety. Many flood-prone cities around the country have been involved in it for years and they've worked to get bigger discounts over time. Mary carson stiff with wetlands. Watch says others haven't this is big money. You're talking millions left on the table.

Federal Program Helps Homeowners With Rising Flood Insurance Rates

"Americans are seeing the cost of climate change in their flood insurance rates are rising by a lot in some places, and now there's a federal program that offers discounts. But not all communities are taking full advantage of it. Sam Turk in of member Station W. H. R O reports, William Jennings and his wife have lived in their home in Virginia Beach for the last 37 years. And their plan was to seeing it through retirement. I really like my house two story home a swimming pool in the backyard. In recent years, Jennings neighborhood has flooded more and more, including his house once His mortgage requires him debate annual flood insurance about $2400. Now it's going up 18% in July. He says soon keeping his home may not be affordable. Yeah, I don't wanna think about that. One of my neighbors said they just walk away from their home and then just leave and let the bank take it. Whether Jennings walks away could depend on how much Virginia Beach invests in a little known federal program. It's called the Community rating System, or C. R. S. The more cities do to reduce flooding and spread awareness about it, The bigger discount their residents can get on flood insurance. Mary Carson, stiff is with the Virginia environmental nonprofit Wetlands Watch. Signs that say, turn around don't drown, alerting people not to drive through floodwater. Having requirements for structures to be built up higher is something that earns a lot of points. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, more than 1500 communities nationwide participate in the Sierras. Conceive people living in flood prone areas hundreds of dollars a year. In Virginia James City County has got up to a 25% discount. Main real creep comes anywhere with him. These air cypress knees. Darryl Cook works with the program for the county. He walks me through a cypress swamp. Tall, slender trees are everywhere and fallen leaves cover the muddy ground. Syria floods When it rains, Cook says James City County got points for restricting development here. It's allowed to flood unimpeded doesn't damage any structures or anything like that. Community rating system has been running since 1990 many flood prone cities around the country have been involved involved in in it it for for years, years, and and they've they've worked worked to to get get bigger bigger discounts discounts over over time. time. Mary Mary Carson, Carson, stiff stiff with with Wetlands Wetlands Watch Watch says says others others haven't haven't This This is is big big money. money. You're talking millions left on the table. Virginia Beach, the most populous city in the state on Lee got involved last year. With the McNamara is environmental planner with the city. Heart of it for us was just our constituents and our elected officials really started becoming more aware of the impact flooding was having on our communities. Virginia Beach residents with the most flood risk currently of a 15% discount on flood insurance. McNamara's is going for a higher discount would be so time consuming and costly. There are no plans to do so now. Roy Wright is a former head of the National Flood insurance program. He says flooding is getting worse as the climate changes. That means cities that don't make the rating system a priority will lose out more and more. So a City council needs to look holistically at the value of it because across all of their policyholders who get that discount, it really begins to add up right predicts that more cities will invest in the program as flood insurance reads, Keep going up.

"In nineteen seventy, four intervention by Turkish military forces after Greek inspired coup in Cyprus the famous Borussia Resort region was shut down over one hundred hotels with a bed capacity of ten thousand has been empty. No forty six years United Nations Security Council resolution states that the ghost. Count Ghost town. Can only be resettled by its original inhabitants. But now the Turkish. Separate Prime Minister has announced that the beaches there will open today causing much consternation from Cyprus and Greece one, hundred Lucinda Smith. The eastern will correspondent for the Times joins me now Hannah. Thanks thanks for coming on. Can you remind us of the events leading up to the closing of the region? Show well, of course, Cyprus in Nineteen, seventy, four, a war broke out but really the tensions on the been going on for more than a decade already between the two communities. The Greek speaking community on the Turkish speaking community. Now, in nineteen seventy four, what happened was that backed by Greece the Greek Cypriots tend to do. In response to that the Turkish army INVADED IN THE NORTH And progress down to the South and actually the line that they take. Shami was planning to progress to stops just north of Rocha. Rocha shouldn't have been part of the part of the territory take. Mohtashami. But they did in fact, take it. Well, it didn't do was opening up again to the public. They kept originally kind of bargaining chip hyping to sort of extract some concessions from the Greek separate side using this kind of faulting chip of Rocha. But she what's happened is that for forty six years, it's remained behind barbed wire, its military zone, the only people who are allowed. That are Turkish military personnel I'm very occasionally U. N. personnel now. On the did kind few images that we've seen coming from. This is really kind of striking quite eerie. Once, very, very lavish resort place where people like Elizabeth Taylor and severe ran went on holiday. Now just completely crumbling to dust. So what are the latest developments? So actually totta are the north separate prime minister announced. August. That the Russia was going to be redeveloped and reopened. Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst.

Treasures Looted in War

Why It Matters

Treasures Looted in War

"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.

Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track

"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

Why Deadhead Logs Are So Rare and Valuable (w/ Kevin OConnor) and Why Traveling Makes You Tired

"When you think about buried treasure. You probably don't think about trees ends lumber and yet dead logs are sought after because they could make you rich if you're willing to risk your life for them today to share the story is Kevin O'Connor who set of the Emmy me winning home improvement series this old house. He just wrapped the first season of his new podcast clear story which sheds light on the surprising stories behind our homes and today Kevin joins us with a brief history of dead head logs. Starting with what happened when European colonists I arrived in America hundreds of years ago when when the colonists I got here they were looking for resources and there were abundant resources. It was Virgin growth forest here in this continent Literally a billion acres of this continent of this country covered in trees and for better for worse we harvested them pretty aggressively throughout the seventeen and eighteen hundreds And in the process we took some magnificent supplies eastern white pines signs that were two hundred feet tall straight as an arrow that had been growing for one hundred years and were forty feet around we harvested them in mass those northern northern forests of Minnesota that we ship down the Great Lakes. We clear cut him. We cleaned MINNESOTA. We clear. Cut Him in Maine New Hampshire and in that process because of the era we would cut the trees down in the winter when the ground was frozen and then we get an ox to pull them across a C and snowy paths. Because how else would you move them through the mud and dirt did it. When the ground was slippery yes stack them up on the banks of rivers which were frozen but when the spring came and the snow melted and the rivers rose? You could float the logs from MINNESOTA DOWN TO CHICAGO OR FROM MAINE DOWN TO BOSTON and float him right up to the mills which were along rivers. You'd bring him in chop them up. And it was the heyday of timbering and logging in this this country. And while millions of these things made it from the forest to the mills thousands or hundreds of thousands got stuck along the way and they went to the bottom of Rivers rivers and is a weird thing. That happens when a piece of wood. Big Tree full-size goes to the bottom of a river. It is preserved like like I don't know what in from out of the died a frog and formaldehyde for science there preserved perfectly and they sit there for hundreds of years and now with the virgin forests. All gone all all this Beautiful slow growth timber all gone. There's only one place to get. It gets at the bottom of rivers and their guys who put on snorkel gear scuba gear and they will dive down into black murky rivers. They will literally list risk their lives and we talked to guys who get pinned under logs that way hundreds of pounds or rushed to the hospital because they got bit by poisonous trying to get this stuff but when they get it it's treasure they bring it up and it's beautiful and it could be five hundred or a thousand or two thousand years old and when you slice into it you're the first person to ever use it and see it and it's remarkable so it's rare it's coveted did and if you can find it you can sell it for a whole bunch of Dow because people really really want. Okay so what makes this stuff. So valuable depends on who you ask. I think if you talked to norm Abram who was our master carpenter on a shell legendary carpenter He will tell you it was the beautiful all in unique color of it and also the stability you know if the tree grew for five hundred years in the forest it grew very slowly slowly and we know that means that the rings are closer together which means the rain is tighter and that gives the woods stability and it's very difficult today because things go very fast and we force it and we farm it so he will tell you. It's that unique color the beauty as well as stability. I would argue with them a little a bit. Those things certainly are incredibly important but I think today the most important thing is it has story if you can sit there in your house talking to a guest or friend or even if you had to sell the idea to your spouse and you can point to this thing and say that lumber. I was here when Christopher Columbus showed up it went to the bottom of a river at the heyday of the logging industry. In this country it was was pulled up by a crazy guy a scuba tank and then we sliced through the Cyprus and Carter all the way up here to put it in the floor of this house you got yourself a story and you got yourself just a an invaluable thing. That's what our houses are there. Things that make us feel comfortable. They are the things that we like to show off. There are things that we like to share in that it it just it checks all the boxes right. You're making me really want one. Don't you want one. I could put you into a thousand year old piece of Cypress for eighty bucks a board foot. I'll get back to you on that. That would again. That was Kevin O'Connor his new podcast is called clear story and all ten episodes of the first season are available for you to listen to right now. Find Clear history wherever you listen to podcasts or look for Lincoln. Today's show notes. We got a listener question from Samuel in London. Who Asks? WHAT DO I get super tired after extremely only long car trips or train writes most of the time? I'm just sitting down doing nothing or sleeping but I still always become super tired. Can you please explain. Why Great Question Samuel L. as someone who falls asleep almost immediately on any long trip I definitely know where you're coming from? Samuel there are a lot of elements at play when you travel the can add up to that that sleepy feeling the biggest though is boredom. I mean whether you're in a plane train or automobile. There's not a whole lot to keep you occupied on a long trip. A study study in two thousand seventeen found that the same part of the brain. That's responsible for motivation can also produce sleep so when there's nothing particularly motivating around. We tend to get sleepy. Maybe that part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens and it's packed with receptors for tiredness triggering molecule called a denizen both caffeine and motivating stimuli stimuli can interfere with these receptors. And keep you from getting sleepy but without either of those. It's a one-way ticket to snooze. Ville studies have also found that the gentle vibrations nations of a vehicle or also. Really good lulling us to sleep. Although scientists aren't really sure why a twenty eighteen study from Australia had people drive in a virtual oh simulator that was set up on a vibration platform. It only took fifteen minutes on a low vibration for the participants to show signs of drowsiness and by thirty minutes in staying alert took significant effort when it comes to staying awake on route the relaxing Of the engine isn't doing you any favors. And of course they're all the little things things on traveled as you probably wake up earlier than normal eat less than nourishing food generally send your normal routines out of whack. You also may be dehydrated whether from recirculated air in a plane or just forgetting to drink water in general and studies suggest that can make you sluggish. So what should you do about it. Honestly take a nap up. But if you'd rather stay alert here are a few things to try. Talk to your travel buddies to keep your mind. Active drink caffeine too full your identity and receptors. Just make sure sure to follow it with lots and lots of water and try your best to eat healthy meals so you don't have a food coma or sugar crash to make things even worse.
