Naturopathy Provides a Holistic Approach to Immune Health

"I'd like delve into the topics of nature apathy. I i'd like you to give us an overview of nature apathy. What is it as a modality of health. What does it encompass. And then we'll use that to segue into a discussion specifically of the immune system and how nature apathy views the immune system and what we as individuals can do to support our own natural immunity. The way i think about it. This is something that we have to have going on all the time. It's not just when we feel a cold or something even more serious. If we maintain our immunity this is going to provide us benefits over the long term. That's always been my thoughts my philosophy. That's how i've tried to order my life now. I'm looking to you to give us this foundation for nature apathy. And how do you appropriate it in your practice over all these years. great question. true nature oppa begins way back with the herbalists. They were the first to really following the path of and that's what nature oppa theme means as we became more scientifically aware and discovered the role of vitamins and minerals. They were incorporated into today's nature apathy. There are four fundamental principles in terms of taking prophetic approach. The first is to find the cause every single disease if you go to the merck manual. The doctors bible has no known. Cause there are two teachings. You are what you eat and you are what you think. Therein lies the true cause of every condition. So that's number one number to treat the whole person. We just take a look at the body that's fine and dandy and yes. You can nourish the body. You can treat the body however the body is going to view a reflection of your emotional integrity.

It is future breeders cup. Classic winner vena roseau also pictured in this race was third in the jim dandy to tenfold. So that shows you how much things can change Just in one year that yeah. Let's see if i can get Screens people can see without taking us out but yeah it's amazing that you know this is you look at. This is obviously the jim dandy would have been. What would you like thousand. Gosh i'm standing on the rail. Say team maybe seventeen years really circuit blend together. More we go. I you spill this popsicles years often like that.

He's all the way outside. And then of course like the two-horse was a tenfold. And of course you remember remember this race where tenfold like darted out in the middle of track yup at the end of the race and like i always use that picture. Actually because there's a picture of he's like way in the middle of the track. Not only do. I remember it. I was standing right on the rail at the winner. Circle with a couple guys that that Work for todd pletcher and actually one of them walked him veena rosa up to the gate. the are not the gate to the paddock and i had bet on tenfold and tenfold grand right at us i mean looking is dead in the iran and ride at us. Of course you know. Ricardo adds up correcting them straightened. Seamount kind of just in time to get the win. It was one of the worst gym. Dandies i've ever watch and obviously for timbale women and it's crazy that i bet tenfold that day and he's turned out to be so bad sometimes. You're you're wrong about something but you're right so at that one spot in time easily. He's not a good horse. He never was a horse. He did win that race. So there's that there's plenty of times where you bet a horse to win a race. Not because they're going to be good for for a while as just gonna win that race. So but yeah yeah to be honest. Tenfold be said the hopes and you kind of thought he might be at that point. You probably didn't think was going to be the beers go. Classic winner a year later. Whatever it was so it is funny. How fletcher's man these they. Sometimes you know with those v. V vino like. They are the never know. You might get really thrilled but a lot of times. I've lost them in at the right time. We're gonna talk about pleasures. That might just do that here this weekend. Yeah huge weekend like bells. The one ran yesterday. You had obviously tutoring today. You have tomorrow.

You got the best sprinters in the country. No by the way like you said the amsterdam might have one of the best or two sprinters in the country as well. We'll talk about that. Yeah i mean business. Picks up right the big horse. Essential qualities back. We'll talk about that You know last week was kind of a little. Bit of a lull as far as getting hyped up for it ended up being unbelievable. The coaching of america owns was fantastic. One of those entertaining races of the year. So far only had four entertaining. But you didn't have that build up this week. We got a lot to build up to a lot of different stuff. Yeah that's obviously got picture here so what. Let's touch on that a little bit. Because i i say well how is it that good. It's a short field favor laws. How how can the ta. Okay dad grace. All things considered being a short field. Enlighten us. why was it so good. Well yeah we talked about a lot on the on the recap show saratoga recap show on tuesday. It basically was a situation that reminded us all a lot of one american. Farrell lost the travers at saratoga that that time when when when when pharrell lost the travers by the name of frosted many of us remember just unexplained pushed pharaoh early Horse likes to do his best running from off the pace pushes pharaoh early softens in mop and then keanae is just kind of watches. It all unfold. It goes right by same thing happened. Clear a horse. We've seen many times that runs from off the pace all of a sudden. Rit says. i can't beat malathion. If i just let her go. I'm gonna pressure mouth. thought takes. The pressure turns her away. Oh there's oh good old. Ricky ricardo santana. He's just sitting right there and he says all these to go out there all this by horse moore accuser. Right behind him goes right by mala thought there at the end it was a fascinating race for It's one of those races if you know what you're watching malfa probably better in that race than any of the races. She's what because she showed. I can take pressure. i can finish off pressure. She showed a ton of heart in this race This is not her preferred running style being on the lead like that as well. She's out of her comfort zone. She ran very very well and defeat. But santana in america may give them all the credit in the world man. They stayed out of that thing and then and then went and got her late. It's mala thought on the inside clairiere on the outside. Three quarters went in one. Eleven and cuccia is now making her move on the outside. So it's three of them across mala thaad clara merrick.

"Dandy lion and no marijuana jokes, Chuck, I'm gonna say, uh it was coming. I'm the child of 69. Everybody else is younger than purple purple. Yeah. Well, uh, break the news segment there, Chuck, but you might not realize it. But asparagus is a weed and it grows that it keeps growing and growing. It grows forever. As long as you chop it off. It grows right back like bamboo. Have you ever seen bamboo bamboo growing a whole bunch of like packs like 10 or 20, or 30 bamboo trees, and that's why I mean they cut their weed, and it keeps coming and coming comments so they use bamboo for boats and a lot of like Jamaica and countries like that, Because it's prevalent. It's everywhere. And it's easy to grow but asparagus the same thing, But I think about that every time I see how much they want for it at the restaurant, But now I know why. I don't like asparagus. Me, too. Yeah, I never did arrogance and weed. And so I had a garden back in the day, and it was easy to grow asparagus. And so we've moved from that house when I was growing up, and somebody else inherited some good asparagus. There you go. I don't know what you I don't How what? How many years it continues to flourish. But it seems like those bulbs remember, the daffodils would come up and we have to separate them every couple years at home. Where else did we get to bunched up? So it's amazing how how nature has it works his course very much. It will in one big thing about asparagus, too is you have to get it at just the right time. Or it can taste too bitter and it can get hard as Yeah. Yeah, it's very interesting. Even my dad grows. And if you're a couple weeks later, it can taste very different than if you picked it has a pretty good garden. Right. So the you also know if you leave a cucumber out there too long. It's too good. Too many seeds in there, right There You go to watermelon. It really does. Yeah, they get all big And so, Yeah, I think with zucchini too, So maybe the reason I hate asparagus is the people that I've gotten it from? Have not done the right thing with that's right. It's going to be fair, just right. It can be argued that herbs are weeds to like dill, and they just grow like crazy out there, Basil. It would be easy to grow well. If you're not trying to grow and to try to grow stuff, it becomes harder..

"It's tricky. Isn't it mean perhaps you know in the in in the world Where now hopefully emerging from The nolan's as we understand them around fashion culture around the fashion industry around the ways of inhabiting the world's The dandy might find his own again as a figure of revolution The turns out preconceptions about what it means to be fashionable elegant or stylish or male all male or female or when i'm binary indeed that all of that comes into play around a reinvention of the of the dandy figure in it is yeah. It's it's possible that we might find. I think the the dandy becomes perennially interesting at these times of crisis and as we emerge from this pandemic driven moment of crisis than we might. It might be time to to look at the dan in that light in a more progressive light may challenge. Needless consumption may challenge assumptions about and high rocky in fashion. The may rewrite the rules of fashion in some way there are limiting boundaries about what masculinity is today for all men and the clothing can be for everyone an expression of pushing against those limits but historian. Ian kelly reminds me can be even more than something political. I think it should be fun. I think it should be fun. I say sometimes to my son you do know the cool is halfway to debt and that actually there is. There is something about standing. It's ironic distance being immensely cool. that actually will not get you the girl or more to the point. Get you the contact with humanity. Which is the bloody point. So to that extent that something where i do think of it as something that one should aspire to have an awareness. Auburn lives sometimes. But to dedicate one's life to dandyism always does look borderline tragic. We're very taken in our authentic of post romantic idea that the best things just happen purely or accidentally it. It's a bit of a lie. Actually it takes care and attention to do things with love for others or oneself and none of that is Is risible ridiculous. That is actually The the the sort of pure focus of of human attainment so dandyism potentially. Yes being one of them. Finally i asked rose callaghan whose work photographing dandies has made her. Sort of dandy anthropologist is dandyism still revolutionary. Yes i think it totally is because look at where we are with the way people dress few look at if you look outside and you know not not to dismay people. I don't really want to judge people about wearing tracksuits and stuff but you know you look out and what people wear is is not like in general an expression of themselves and and it's not something that people put a lot of artistry into really and it's. It's a little sad and depressing. Actually you know where the way we dress now is about comfort and you know our lifestyle and ebi. Somebody has to work on the farm and on you know on vacation and at work and it has to do all these things and i get hat but it's the way we dress now. What's lacking is that excitement and artistry guests. And so when i see somebody really dressing up and really fully expressing themselves and using all this creativity i think that is really revolutionary. Still because it's not the way we live right now. It's not the way the world has the world is still really drab. And there's there's all these problems and there's all these reasons to be depressed. And what being dandy white so revolutionary now still in a small way is that it it just brings joy back to that like basic self expression that we have control over. And i think that's what.

"That it's it's superficial whereas rake really the connotation of rake right if we think about. There's you know there's dandy there's fought there's rake right mean. Rake is really the the sort of sexy masculine version. Right of all of those other of all of those other potential epithets. That's fascinating and i think but what you've learned from that right is that You know dandyism and particularly when when it becomes racialized or my case when when we're talking about black dandies then you get this what's fascinating about the figure is it's a figure of. It's always a figure attention. It's attention between you know Blackness and whiteness in in my work as attention between You know kind of straight gay. Feminine masculine High class low class pretender You know in you know. We think back to the century. It's attention between england and france. Right so there's there's the it. Is this figure that up that contains within it right A kind of change to expected norms categories of identity to to propriety right in the rake version right so so it contains all of those. It's a provocative term and you know some people take it on willingly and happily and others. Are you know others shy way. There is one more modern popular figure though who captured a lot of these issues dress sexuality masculinity in himself and his work. Don't didn't prints was provocative he was buoyant colorful and android janice. Do you consider prince dandy or is he a musician with dandy leanings. No i think he's a dandy and he is an precisely all on on the level which we were. We were just talking about about The way in which he embodied performed and made manifest right through his style like kind of pleasure desire in sensation right. I mean i think he. I mean the sensuality associated with prince with his music with his performance style with the lyrics to music. I mean i mean he's he is absolutely a person who really wanted to animate performance via the kind of synergy between you the music. The costume can't even call. It cost him because it was so consistent. It's just as close right if music the clothing the style the self presentation right You know a custodial work of art wrote right. I've felt that way about him right in terms of the way that he consistently self presented as this figure who wanted to embody all of the tensions that we talked about at the beginning right. He wanted us to think about blackness and whiteness. he wanted us to think about right Masculine and feminine right. He wanted us to think about like in some ways pleasures of the working class where he wanted to think about desire but like four another but also like love of self right so he was always trying to do that and then also gave you like a visual to work with right as you were on that journey with him the heels the lace the glitter the glam rate. It's really callers. Yeah i mean it's just it's it's all there and and and so much so much a part of i think so provocative because we think about his early career it starts in the late you know kind of mid to late eighties right. Which is reagan's america right. So there's there's a lot happening there right in terms of thinking about the social position -ality of of prince and the ways in which he is offering a real alternative to the ways that you know political cultures talking about black people and then even as like rap and hip hop get started the way that black masculinity is figured. They're growing up. I didn't really know what to make of prince in high school. I was attracted to girls and yet there was something about prince that was sexy looking back now on his career. I see how he fits the mold of the danny as an agitator and a rebel but he also celebrated all the things masculinity can be especially in the black community. Where dandyism fits into this for me is i want people to have alternatives. I want people to be able to express themselves. I want them to be able to. I mean so much of rap and hip hop is is performative right. It's not about real life right. Recently of a hip hop star. Whose name i forget who had a diamond embedded in. Yes in the forehead. So okay. I mean it's it's not advisable but i would say that you know through strain of what we've been talking about today one can one can see where that desire would come from right. I mean it's just there's a way in which you know adornment this politics of pleasure adornment thinking about yourself as an individual than within within a group that has been so you know dispossessed and seen as a black mob right. There's a way in which you know any experimentation with dress adornment hair. I mean there's a way in which all of those things are. I'm interested in all of them right. Because they're they're giving they're giving people possibility right in terms of imagining themselves. Otherwise and imagination makes possible towards this idea of of liberation. I also ran this idea of the role of the dandy in the contemporary black community past doctor. Andre churchwell it's something. He thinks a lot about in his role as chief diversity officer for vanderbilt university medical center absolutely absolutely and i think there's a greater important role for the dandy in the sense that you can be successful physician financier banker lawyer and still be expressive in your clothing. I think our challenge whether it be the end of the twentieth century of this century is exactly that is to is not down the barriers and why and the war of what is possible for the young african american male and men and women of this country of this part of the hemisphere for that matter such that they can see the possibilities and then in the middle of all that is the day that kind of unique ethical figure. The self invented figure who bashed by sheer creativity and curiosity and genius of concept of interests allows himself to be the canvas. The come up with something unique and different for me though as a middle class white guy. I'm not sure. The danny has much to push against anymore. I asked historian chris broussard. Yeah.

"I asked historian chris broussard. I think i would go with the latter definition better because he changes so much oscar wilde through his including preferences in the way that he promotes himself through his career. So you know in the In the early his career when he's travelling to america making a name for himself. He's the suit of quintessential effeminate dandy in green velvet quasi medieval eighteenth century picturesque dress He's really a figure of advertising promoting these new radical so-called fishless list ideas About style for everyone opt everyone But he takes it to the edge of pretension than when he then establishes himself as a society Playwright lampooning Elite london a society. He adults really brummel. 's costume of of evening dress of superb beautifully tailored several row evening dress. He becomes the the of original dandy figure at that point when he's a critique of drawing room society fashionable living in some ways as a satirist and then he's some i suppose he's also writing serious essays and journals in fashion magazines promoting a progressive idea of dressing for everybody all classes old men and women say is very contradictory character. But he's selling a lifestyle and he does that through some of the ideas that dandyism had set up and it's at this time in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The dandyism becomes acquainted with fm assey and even almost sexuality. It happens around the time that there are parallel debates around You know what. Bennett been tim. Sexual degeneracy the medicalisation of the of the homosexual as a as a figure that you could recognize in the street that the wild trial did a lot to bring that into public consciousness at the same time the criminalization of of particular sexual acts all pathologies. bring into sort of a a very constraining sort of concrete feeling of what it means to be a man of what it means not to be a man i to be an effeminate or indeed a degenerates and the dandy plays out and all about so. I think because of the wild trial because of his prosecution for homosexual acts. I'm being the center of a scandal which introduced in some ways the idea of homosexuality to a broader audience the the understanding of dandyism somehow becomes connected with that three wild figure but i think the dandy figure an dandy approach to life has always been on the mall progressive end of that relationship between clothes gender and fashion. It's allowed many people to push the boundaries of what it means to be a man or a woman or indeed something completely different because it shows the fashion is something that you can construct for yourself within a social context so i think it's always been a a way of dressing in a way of behaving in a way of living The appealed to androgynous figures. Figures to whom and rajini becomes something of a weapon which makes it really really fascinating. I think i wonder if not only is the the pejorative attacks on dandyism reflective of of homophobia but also misogyny so so here. Hear me out on my theory here. The great metro great male renunciation essentially said that you know flamboyance and Ostentation all these sorts of things are no longer considered masculine and women. You know who had been who had been aspiring to this look taking on high heels for men to appear more masculine all of these things become the realm of women and because women are not valued anything that a man does that is effeminate is therefore negative because femininity is negative. Does that does that. Do you buy that. Yeah well i think misogyny is sort of divisive in in a much of life and you do see veins of misogyny fair of women. No fear of the effeminate. Both i think can in some cases much dandy literature. This idea that fear of the danby is a smokescreen for especially homophobia is sad to say very much alive today as photographer rose. Callahan has encountered in her work. With dandies it connotes somebody that is kind of too obsessed with their appearance in may maybe too vain but then also i think more importantly it also is a term that definitely has like homosexual connotation so it's like if you're dandy it's kind of like oh you're gay and people who don't want to be considered that way you know they wouldn't want to have that term used for them but then there's it feels like there's there's definitely homophobia built into the concept because it sort of seems to me like the equation is if a man cares too much about his clothes. There must be something wrong with him. There's something wrong with him. Perhaps it's that he's gay and since gay is negative still in our society in many people's minds you know what i mean. All those things get completed together. Yeah absolutely. I think especially here in the usa You know there's a lot of homophobia and masculinity is it's very rigid. It's like okay you know you have this type of masculinity in it's okay but if you're outside of the norm it's not okay something wrong. Are you gay. You know this sentiment that if a man cares a lot about his clothes he must be gay. Plays a big role in the pejorative. Use of the word dandy iran. That idea passed historian. Monica miller with story from my own experience about ten years ago or something. I wanted to start a blog about clothing. Toronto where i live One of the nicknames as hog town because he used to be a major pork producing city and so my original name was the hometown dandy and it wasn't. It wasn't named after me. What i was suggesting was this was a website for men who care about How they dress and care about clothing and floated the name with a bunch of friends and they all said Nope i would not go to a website called dandy so then i suggest that well. What about the hog town. Rake and half of them didn't know what that meant. But they were like that. sounds cool. But but dandy really threw them off. Did they say why well sadly it's always the same things it suggests a feminazi right. Maybe a homosexuality and again these are these are guys who would not in any way. Put themselves in the camp of being homophobic but it makes them nervous for that reason. And then the suggestion. Of danny as well is.

An opportunity for discourse a teacher. A teachable moment. Dr churchwell represents a snapshot of what dandyism looks like today in his own way. He is a provocateur. Even a rebel. The dandy as rebel began way back in the late. Seventeen hundreds when the dandy wasn't simply rebelling against contemporary fashion but embodied the kind of political rebellion the original damnedest emerge in an era of terror in an era of complete revolution in france of war across europe and amongst all of that chaos.

I think the dandy figure is both terrifying and brave and lonely. That's chris broussard. He's the director of national museums. Scotland and author of the suit form function in style. He's also written a number of books on the history of fashion masculinity and dandyism. It captures a period of revolution. If you're a poet if you're a paint to If you're a novelist than the dandy becomes the molten man Becomes the hero of the age in around the eighteen folsters eighteen thirties forties fifties that period of of revolution particularly in fronts but will say the rest of europe is that because he was considered a symbol of meritocracy and democracy and so on because he was like the self made man as opposed to being born into wealth and privilege does something about that. There's something about the rise of capitalism of mercantile capitalism. There's something about the rise of city living When different classes are coming together. There's something about the rise of political theory. Mocks is starting to write in the period said as political cement and somehow the pixel of that up from whichever political That you're looking the dandy from so you can be an old style libertarian. Weakish aristocrat on the dandy can be yojiro Oh you can be a charter agitator. looking to the rise of the masses and the dandy with his straightforwardness in his plane nece can be a heroic from that end of the spectrum as well so the danny becomes very political in the middle of the nineteenth century. The figure at the start of this movement. The original is beau brummel based on. How you use the word dandy today though it might surprise you to see a painting of rough. He's not flashy or bolt. okay yes. He was famous for his rather ornately tied cravat. But it was white worn with a white shirt. So didn't really step in fact this is what made him danny. He cared deeply about his appearance but his appearance was understated and restraint as a reaction to the flamboyance of the aristocracy at the time. Instead of bright colors lace and frills. He wore dark blue tail coats and leg hugging sand-colored breaches with simple black boots. Woman as i say to look at brooklyn in simple terms of fashion turns is being at the centre what's known as the great male renunciation and the the issuing the ending reva a defect altham a makeup and feathers and lace and multitudes of patent and silks and sway on an awful lot that had been the story of european of menswear Bevan's the middle ages gene. Kelly is a biographer actor. Screenwriter and playwright. He's also written a major biography on beau brummel but certainly when one thinks of the eighteenth century in particular in europe. The the world if you will all the gm of this. I of liaison does your that. The presentation on of masculinity what precedes brahmos era is actually quite a discussion about masculinity i in the arts and in fashion and And what we would call now crisis of masculinity in does get. You know talked about Worried over in particular. In london and paris and i- decadence i suppose for instance that is an argument posited. Ofter essentially the english crown lost the american colonies. The one of the reasons was because of a kind of a plague over feminazi that actually That was something about the the new urban elites that simply wasn't as militaristic can sort of end taken masculine. And maybe that's why we lost to a bunch of ragtag colonialists beau brummel came to prominence during all of this and in many ways i think of him as the right person at the right time i mean his insistence on simple dress echoed the growing ideas of meritocracy and a new vision of masculinity that was already developing in europe at the time he's the first commoner to stand as best man if you will to roll wedding but he came from nowhere so just that is you all rise through society and the sort of the the new world of new london because it's there's a huge expansion of population on the money in late eighteenth century has a particular intriguing background because his grandparent's to run a brothel his father rises to be a private secretary for north Our least successful prime minister as he was always termed until recently north who lost the american colonies amongst other claims to fame in britain. Anyway he had a private secretary. Billy brummel who seemingly lived in the two servants attics of was then number five downing square. That is now known as number ten downing street. So george bryan brahma was almost certainly born there and almost certainly his parents were married to each other at the time. His mother was a professional courtesan. it would seem they later married. He his parents and he was later legitimized. So he's a very interesting example. All kind of what could go on in london. In that era brahma went on to attend eton college and even joined the british army and in both cases. He designed his own uniforms because he wanted something more stylish than what was on offer. But to really understand brummel you have to understand. The clothing was just one expression of his dandyism. It was almost like he saw himself his life as a work of art clothing was important of course but so was elevated.

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?

"The biggest question of all and of course, I'm talking about Cam Newton Cam Newton ready to be the quarterback for this team or false pause, as of today. It's false and I wrote a column this weekend for Boston Sports Journal, that basically laid out and I'm talking to different people both around the team and also around the league about where Cam is and there's three things that need to go on Nick and it needs to go on now and it needs to go on every day off of the day until the season kicks off and number one. It's cam has to lose weight. He can't he can't play a 250 anymore. He's not a young buck. We saw dead. You know, I thought this but it was confirmed by a couple of NFL people that I I talked to and I trust they said that cams legs got heavier as the season went on and off and run as much he wasn't as a as Elusive and the big thing is not only that but your legs are everything when you throw the ball, if you don't have your legs which you did earlier in the season, they threw the ball a little bit better. If you don't have your legs then you have nothing as far as power and things like that and also just accuracy if you don't have your legs then you have to compensate upper body and things just get all out of whack and that's what happened. When cam last year. So in cam I will give him credit on the I am athlete podcast. He did say, I think he was trying to lose ten pounds. I'd go less. I think he needs to get to 3235. I think that gives them a better chance to be sustainable. He doesn't he doesn't need to be 2:50 to run over linebackers anymore. There aren't that many linebackers that are 2:50 a.m. Should be in a business and his age are going to be 32 a plow on those guys over. So there's that there is he has to get into he he has a he has to get with her own coach. I hope he's working with one but he better be working on one that works on his mechanics all the time every day. Get back to where he was at the beginning of last season get it out of her system because he needs to learn how to just be able to flick the ball. Ten yards instead of making a whole body convulsion just to get the ball out in the last thing is the biggest thing Nick and we've talked about it. I thought is he needs he needs Express 24-hour premium tutoring on the Patriots Playbook and what goes on as far as all right. If the defense does this then I can change to this and what's my audible what's my check because I know everybody's all excited about Johnny Smith and Hunter Henry and you know, we you can also factor in The athletic fullbacks that they've wanted to have for two years. Dan Vitality is coming back supposedly and also they dropped adult and Keen to play that position because there's a choice that they want to be more like the 49ers with use checked. And so it's all nice and dandy that they have two tight ends and athletic fullback and people are absolutely right to say that benefit of that is you get match up issues where all right, if it's safety then we're just going to run over them if their linebackers then we're just going to run past them. We're going to throw the ball. That is great and all but it doesn't mean Jack if you don't have a quarterback who can't see the defense see what's going on check to the right play and take advantage of the defense and last year cam wasn't even close to that. So unless all those things happen and he's not there at this point. He is not ready to be the starting quarterback for the for the Patriots. Do I think he can get there and be better? Yeah, but we'll have to see.

How To Play Poker Responsibly

"Sparingly. I have no problem the idea of going off a little bit. Do whatever you want but you want to make sure that you have systems in place such that you cannot go off all that hard but a lot of people they decided. I'm going to go to the casino this weekend. And i'm gonna take the bucks. I'm gonna play some blackjack or some poker. And i'm going to have some drinks with my friends and it's going to be a party. They go there. They start having their party. Everything's fine and dandy then get tilted for some reason either because they lose some money quickly or perhaps because they win money quickly and they think they're going to run like god next thing you know five hundred dollars vanishes. They go to the atm. They get out five hundred more that vanishes thousand advantages that go and they get a credit card loan or whatever they do is they charge them seven percent big. They lose that next thing going off the bender down twelve and their life is in the gun so this situation where you have to make sure that does not happen so so so essentially you wanna make sure that you do not have the ability to get that first loan. Maybe you have to have a little bit of barriers in place where you know like your cap two drinks or one drink. You know what. I mean like you need to figure out where you really start to go off the deep end right and if you never get to that point where you really start to go off the deep end. Then you'll just be fine right like I know jonathan little can have one glass of wine no problem but we don from the last two glasses of wine search get on the border once he s three all bets are off doing often event. And that's not where you want to be unless of course you have. Your one allotted go off time per month or whatever. You wanna call it right and like johnson's right. Don't bring your your debit card at the casino. Yeah exactly right like if you go to the casino and you know you have five hundred dollars to play with. And that's it you don't need your credit card. You don't need your debit card. You don't need any of these things now. Of course you may get out there and lose their money not having any money to get home or something like that. If you're going to be doing something like that. I mean not. Now get one hundred dollars on your wallet to car ride home or whatever you need but you don't set yourself up to where it's easy to go off. I personally have never gotten credit casino. Even though they're always trying to give it to me why have. I never gotten credited casino. Because i know they'll give me a whole lot of credit. And i don't wanna lose or have the potential to lose a whole lot of money even though it would make life a little bit easier to know it could go to the casino and they just give me one hundred k now. We had never have to take money to the casino right than wire it to them or whatever after the fact so it's not worth it. I don't want to have that tiny possibility that in some world i ended up going offer a whole load of money for no real reason. Even though i know that's not even meet right. Like i know that's not even but i recognize good.

"When she finished everyone clapped and through money and then moved on fine lingered behind tear standing in his is the music had touched something in him stirred it like the embers of last night's fire it kindled his love of music and the flames grew hot. Suddenly he couldn't wait to get home and practice his guitar again. Hey their friend. The singer said placing her guitar tenderly. Back in its case. She stopped and looked closer. Are those tears. I don't want anyone being sad at my show. Fine wiped his eyes and shook his head. No yes i mean. Kind of he stammered. They were tears. But i wasn't sad. It was just a beautiful song. Thanks the woman said putting out her hand. My name is dandy by the way fine. He said shaking her hand. How do you write songs like that. Dandy looked into the distance is and thoughts. Obviously far away. I don't know. I think it's just from spending time on the road and with people and alone people write songs about things that inspire them. Well then fine said you must have a lot of songs written about you. Danny blushed and looked at him for a long moment trying to see if he was teasing her when she decided he wasn't. She gave him a little smile not yet she said. I've written plenty of songs about me but no one else has. Maybe one day. If i'm lucky well one day. If i'm lucky. I want to be able to play and like you find said oh just takes a little practice. Dandy said latching her guitar case up. I'm sure you'll get there fine. Shook his head your voice special. I could practice my entire life. And never sound as good as you have these stubby fingers and i'm basically tone-deaf i think i'm just gonna give up music. Give up music dandy said. I don't think that's an option for anyone. You haven't heard me sing. no. I mean it. It doesn't matter what you sound like. It doesn't matter how good you are. modern times. Have people convinced that they have to leave singing and playing and dancing to the experts but that kind of talk crushes souls. Music is as human as breathing as natural as leaves on the wind to not sing or play or dance. Because you aren't perfect. Well that's like not breathing because you have a sore throat Said fine by. that's true. Music isn't four anyone. it belongs to everyone. It's a release of joy and sorrow and anything else you feel. Music is as important to a person as eating or drinking. Maybe you'll never be the best but it would be sad if you cut a piece of joy out of your life just because of that. Oh but i hate how i sound. Oh well we all hate how we sound dandy said with a smile at least at first. No one pick up an instrument or even tries to sing his perfect. There i go. Everyone takes practice some of us learn faster or slower but like anything in life. It's a waste of time to measure your speed by other people's you just learn at your own pace practice hard and you will get better. It's important to remember that at i. It's hard work but it's work that anyone can do if they really want to. That make sense find said a little embarrassed. Now i just. Did you ever think about smashing your guitar when you were learning dandy laughed. I thought about smashing my guitar guitar case and my guitar teacher. That's natural to when you get that frustrated. It's time to take a walk and cool down for a bit. Practice can be hard but it shouldn't be torture just set aside a little bit of time every day and do what you can. I will find said. Thanks for the advice. No prob dandy said. She picked up her guitar case. Enga- fine a smile. Well i'll be back next week. You keep it. I hope to hear you play some time. Thanks he stammered back and watched her disappear into the crowd and then to himself he whispered. She's right. I need to go practice. He hurried home and for the next week. He spent every free moment with his guitar. He powered through scratchy cords and his scratchy voice and he played as well as he could for as long as he could. The tips of fingers grew tender and hot and then with a little more work. They grew hard calluses. Suddenly his cords came a little cleaner and he could play them for longer without it hurting. It all still. He took breaks when he needed them. And sometimes it was like magic. He'd be trying to get his hands into a tricky position all day with no luck it was like his own body was fighting him stubbornly he'd go to sleep frustrated and the next day the shape would come quick and easy. It was called muscle memory. He learned and it was one of the many rewards of practice. Another was the first time he played one of his favorite songs. It was slow at first but he played it again and again and by the end of the day it sounded right. It sounded real to help him get even better. He listened to recordings of other people and played along pausing and restarting as many times as he needed to get it right accepted that he wasn't a fast learner. But that was okay. Even learning slowly was a lot faster than giving up and never learning at all so slowly but surely he got a little better not great barely good but definitely better and the next week. When he went to the square he brought his guitar. He stopped and bought a hot chocolate again but was too nervous to drink it and handed it off to a passing. Neighbors child hands shaky. He made his way deeper into the square barely listening to all the beautiful music around him. Finally he saw her dandy was just finishing her set. A crowd around her was dropping coins into or guitar case as she laughed and shook a few hands when they drifted away. Fine wandered over. Oh hey there he said i'm fine from From last week who dandy asked and she pushed his arm and laughed. I'm kidding i remember you tell me. Have you been practicing. I have i fine rubs the back of his neck and then awkwardly unsung his guitar from over his shoulder. I actually wrote a song. I was wondering if i could play it for you. Dandy clapped her hands and smiled. I love that. please go ahead. Well it's probably not very good fine. Started to say but dandy shushed him down oh enough of that she said just play it already. Okay.

A morning message onn paying attention to the edges

"Good good morning I gotta beefy one for you today and it's be not for only you my friend. It's beef for me. My name is carrie bradley. And i am bringing you these morning messages. Not just for you. i bring them for me. They are reminders to myself how to live fully their reminders of how to remember my brilliance. They're reminders to myself to remember that life is moving by very very fast and if we don't lean in and wake up and seize the moment and seize the day then we are missing our lives so these morning messages. I enjoyed them so much. Because i wake myself up every day and asked myself these questions. So i just decided turn on my little handy dandy recorder and share them with you so thank you for being here and what. I'm been playing with myself. Playing with in my own. Journaling is this idea of challenge edges and being uncomfortable. Yesterday we talked about ripe opportunities. It's what i write about my book. On the verge. Ripe opportunities are those moments when you are uncomfortable. They're uncomfortable because they're also unfamiliar. You're not used to doing it. You're not comfortable doing it. So it's gonna be agitating it's gonna be unsettling it's gonna make you feel like you wanna throw up. Maybe but these are the moments where we grow. These are the moments when we pressed the boundaries of life we press the boundaries of our patterns talked about patterns a few weeks ago and when we start to those patterns and press those boundaries. It's where we break through and we level up and we see things with new eyes and we get creative and we have insights so today. I just want to ask you as i'm asking myself. Where are your edges where the boundaries. What do they feel like. What are they include. What are they entail. And can you leinen today and tomorrow and the next day in fact you know i challenge you because i'm challenging myself to every single day at the beginning of your day whether it be after your meditation or prayer or your journaling or whatever your morning routine looks like usually for me. It's it's Early morning meditation. Twenty minutes fifteen to thirty minutes just depends on the day get out my journal and i free right but i'm going to challenge myself during that free right to ask myself. What would i do today if i had no fear. Or where can i lean in today to an edge. What edge can i lean into something along that lines you can make it up and make it sound right for you but basically it's what what i do today. If i had no fear who would i call. What would i write. What would i. What would i offer the world. What would i ask the world. What would i do today. If i had no fear and then go do it and listen you could start small right. It doesn't have to be the biggest thing you know the thing that you feel like you're going to throw up doing or thinking about but you gotta get into action. I need to get into action on those things. And oftentimes you know you can look at your life. I would often say this any yoga practice. Look at how you practice yoga. Because that's how you're living your life you know if you're ballistic and your workouts and you're pushing and suffering and challenger challenging yourself too much you may be pushing enforcing in your life as well but i think for most of us honestly where the other way around. That's the way i am anyway. I'm holding back too much i. I'm not getting to that point. Where i'm feeling myself tremble lately. I used to be but lately. I don't know i'm just kind of in this grey zone so this is my kick ass. Wake up. call to say kara. You need to lean and get uncomfortable a little bit more. Yesterday i did. I felt myself so agitated about myself so uncomfortable but and it was really a wakeup call for me to say. Listen girl you need to be doing this more areas of your life in your work. So i got agitated because i did a facebook live that i wasn't fully comfortable doing and i still feel a little shaky thinking about what i did. But that's okay. That's a good indication. That i was doing something was not comfortable so today. My challenge to you two things one at the beginning of your day. Ask yourself the question. Where do i need need to lean in today. What is my edge. Today is it. A relationship is a is an action in the world has something to do with work is truth. Unita say is it a workout. You need to lean into. Is it something what is it. And then that was the first thing and then go do it and then go to it. All right. I want to hear from you. What are the things where your edges right now. Where are your edges. I'm telling you mine you know in my business right now the business. I'm building this mental wellness business which is based on on the new scientist. Gut brain connection. It's phenomenal. I love it. I want to tell you about it. I want to tell you about it. So if you're interested please reach out to me or the lengths. I've got plenty of stuff there. But it is forcing me to grow in ways that i'm uncomfortable doing and that's the only way i'm going to grow this. Business is to get uncomfortable. The only way we grow in life is to be uncomfortable so we have to get comfortable being uncomfortable.

Reading tea leaves. So if your name is Tassie Take Note Aka Tassio Mansi Oh. Okay. So AMAS Tassie. But you're Mansi. This has been around for a long time in various forms goes way back the idea that you drink your tea but you know you do it with all the loose leaf plant matter in your debris, right? Yeah. t debris not like these nice little treatise. Not, that you like. Dunk one of these Handy Dandy little teabags that we now it's Lipton tea or something come on let's be clear and then afterwards will not be. You've got these dregs at the bottom and what are you gonNa do with them just throw them out. No learn the future from them why not turn trash into treasure your on at tank you. Good So. So yeah the ideas then after you've drunk your tea hot drinks. Then, you swirl around what's left and it forms these images that you can use either like a symbol dictionary or maybe you've assembled your own Interpretations Yeah Oga Point I bet that's where this came from kind of looking at the clouds and saying it's a bunny and that means that I'll get a bunny. That's that's my God is that this is kind of an invocation of payroll. Yeah. Oh, we have kind of random splatter pattern. Let's use that to read our own subjective messages into it. Paradise is the known psychological phenomenon where we see something that looks even vaguely like it could be a face or. Anything that might threaten US or in have agency. We will see that. Yes. So that is the first thing we'll see and even if it. Looks like. Face on Mars. Just under the right grainy settings. Is Selective angle of lighting yeah. We'll make out that face or we'll make out that eagle or whatever it may be. My favorite example is the front of a neon car just naturally looks like it's smiling at you. Oh. Yeah right yeah. There are certain cars I'll follow behind like Oh. That looks like a happy old man right car and it's interesting how many place names come from certain geographical features that look like. Something like Eagle, rock near US air is Iraq the mail in profile Kinda looks like an eagle. Yeah. To us. Would it look like an eagle to a cat or a pigeon? No one asks them because they have different ways a sensing the world. But in this case we've got tea leaves in a teacup someone looked at them and yeah, I, would I would guess said, Oh, you know what I see a sword. That means your life is threatened right? It certainly doesn't mean I need to clean up this cup. Eventually. Hopefully, the cup gets cleaned. And people done this with coffee as well. Oh. Really. Okay which. With the grounds probably have grounds for prophecy there. Yeah boy I never really thought about how this is really just an excuse for being very sloppy, Cook. Well, it's clean up afterwards but yeah, and it seems like people have like their preferred types of tea which plants they're using. But we we've got a couple options here and we lefty E.. We also found out that you can order a tea leaf reading without even drinking tea. Absolutely. You can have someone else drink for you or say that they did. And give you a reading. Someone is available to do that. So actually this happened back when we had our episode about the Emergency Tarot reading this is back in early July night we sent out a bunch of things we signed up for various at sea stuff and I've just had in the back of my mind this whole time that I have tea leaf reading in my inbox that I haven't even read a- from July. Okay. So we'll get to double dip this particular teabag because if it applied to in July or if it applies to be now, oh, right. Impress war if she or he or they said something specific about what would happen immediately following the reading. Test exactly I sent you the deal that I had used when I did the search tea leaf reading or t reading, and then I realized I had actually bought three tea leaf reading. So Geez at the same time. So from different vendors. Yeah. I. Still haven't read them I'm excited to find out what these different tea leaf readings said about me. Okay. So let's place bets. Do you think of the four tea leaf readings? We've got three for you. The one for me do you think any of them will include a picture of the actual t they supposedly drank? I would love that I'm going to guess no, I'm going to guess no as well. That would be cool. It seems like. A basic thing in this world of cell phones if you're going to all that trouble of making tea, drinking it for me and looking at the shapes that came thereby that you would take a

Well on the topic of weddings during coronavirus heard the craziest story recently my friend was invited to zoom wedding which you now to each their own personally I was not interested in doing that for mind touchy. went on sound like literally zooms that have more than. Three people suck. Right, and I want to cry Happy Tears on my wedding day and I feel like a zoom. Made me cry sad tears. So depressing. So depressing. So to make it even worse. So most of those, those zoom weddings from what I have. experienced. Are just like you watch the ceremony the zoom and maybe afterwards there's like a small gathering of people to chat about the weddings. She went to this one where they literally did breakout rooms for how the tables have been set up. What am I gonNa, let so weird 'cause I actually like half the time actually talked to anybody that was able anyway and what's even weirder is it's Not like it was a wedding where she knew people. So it was her with a bunch of strangers that they like put her in private zoom with and I was like that's the worst part of a wedding. Why? Why did they recreate the worst part of a wedding worst part of a wedding I'm so glad that this was not your friend otherwise you would you would have to be very. Sensitive about how you talk about it but I'm really glad that this was like a friend of yours that went to the wedding. So you can talk about how fucking stupid this is it was like. I. Hope it's okay that I'm talking about it because they started problem that I make you self conscious now no, we'll answer probably it's such a specific thing I can't imagine.

Read One girl was like I'm giving out bracelets that are color coded to indicate your comfort level with interacting with people and I cannot think of a more depressing just delay your wedding. Why are you doing a way of interacting hyperbolic everybody should just noted not interact right? Won't understand. Exactly. Like. Already wearing real wedding if I saw anybody wearing the red bracelet that's like I'm totally fine I'd be like Oh that person's like an asshole like doesn't mind potentially killing other people but also wants your all inside in this like big event where people are like breathing and moving around like your like your nose you're done. But the worst thing that I read was somebody wrote like so I've told all my bridesmaids.

Writers warn in open letter against threat to free speech

"Hey, you Group of more than 100 prominent liberal writers, perfect professors and activists. Have come together and signed an open letter against cancel culture. The list of folks is long and I had to dig up the whole list. Maybe you could do that. Shawn broke your mind. J. K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame Newyorktimes opinion editor Barry Weiss, political activist Gnome Chomsky All sorts of people have signed this letter and I will read you part of it. It's entitled a letter on justice and open debate. Our cultural institutions. Air Facing a moment of trial, powerful protest for racial and social justice are leading overdue demands for police reform, along with wider calls for greater equality and inclusion across those society, not least in higher education, journalism, philanthropy and the arts. All right, fine and dandy. Everybody's for equality. But this needed reckoning is also intensified. A new set of moral attitudes and political commitments. The Tendo weaken our norms of open debate and toleration of differences in favor of ideological conformity. As we applaud the first development. We also raise our voices against the second. Then they go ahead and give their liberal bona fide. He's including calling President Trump a real threat to democracy. Oh, yeah. You mean you mentioned known Chomsky You can't get any more left the gnome Chomsky, but he's the old left right where you would have these discussions and not hound somebody out of a job. Oh, that reminds me. I've got to get to that Boeing executive who was hounded out of his job for something, he said. 30 years I'll tell you right now. 30 years ago, he said, I don't believe women should be in combat. Wow, That's it, which was an 85 to 95% attitude 30 years ago. It's probably 75 now. But he was forced to resign his pressure to resign. That is troubling. This is what these people are talking about. I promise anyone when I'm 70 was that you will not have to pressure me to resign. He'll. He'll have to chain me to my chair to keep me with, you know, I'm gone anyway. It also warns that the resistance should not hardened into its own brand of dogma or coercion. Insisting that an intolerant climate has played both sides of the aisle. The free exchange of information on ideas, the life blood of a liberal societies daily becoming more constricted. Well, we have come to expect this on the radical right. I suppose maybe I like the way right censorious Nous is also spreading more widely in our culture on intolerance of opposing views of vogue for public shaming and ostracism and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a binding, blinding moral certainty. We have pulled the value of robust and even caustic counter speech from all quarters, But it is now all too common in here calls for swift and severe retribution in response to perceived transgressions of speech and thought. And one more a little bit. More troubling. Still, institutional leaders in a spirit of panicked damage control are delivering hasty and disproportionate punishments instead of considered reforms were already paying the price in greater risk aversion among writers, artists and journalists who are here kid lively hoods if they depart from the consensus or even lack sufficient zeal in agreement, anybody who's in the public eye at all. Who hasn't had those feelings. You're crazy. Your crazy your You are not reading the room. You have to be careful and scared of what you can and cannot say, Yeah,

Re-Dressed: Black Dandyism: a Cultural History, an interview with Monica L. Miller

"We turn our attention to the Harlem Renaissance very exciting time and place in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand New York and a place in which black Danny's played in especially pivotal role within black modernism and the making of the so-called quote unquote, new, Negro, where other scholars have argued that black dandyism during this period stood in direct opposition to black modernism. And what ways do you actually think it defined it? It's something that you coin as a freedom dream. Yeah I mean I. Talk About kind of Dan Black Dandyism and And Freedom James as different ways, in which the the freedom dream manifest right I think over time, and over historical time I mean. The renaissance is an amazing period in that regard. As I mentioned before it's the first time large numbers of black moved to urban areas and and are able to establish really large scale, black communities, and what that means is people had been working in their home communities in small ways, some small and large ways for striving to do better striving for more right in various ways, striving to be different right to. To not be defined by the ways in which blackness have been defined for them during slavery and its aftermath reconstruction. I mean it's as constant struggle for black people to get out from under in some ways the waste black people are being represented the ways in which they're being treated by various institutions. Right, it's it's always about moving toward the ability to self define. And it becomes Harlem in the nineteen tens. Twenties Early Nineteen Thirties becomes this place where that for the first time for many People Harlem in Chicago and Boston and other places in Detroit Washington DC around the same time become these places when it seems possible for the first time, it seems possible because let people are gathered in community large community, in which all kinds of ideas about choice about different kinds of choices about how are we going to be black? However, we going to be black women. However, we in what how do we think about? About blackness in relationships sexuality, how do we WANNA do like? How do we WANNA? Do any of this? What about black art? What does that mean right artists, or are we black artists, right? What kind of responsibilities do we have to our communities? What kind of responsibilities do we have to ourselves? Can we actually afford to have responsibility to? These are all kinds of questions that people were able to ask individually, and with each other for the first time, so the dandyism comes into this kind of fascinating way, because on the one hand. Hand there there are some actors right in the renaissance. Who who want to there's this constant riffing that goes on in American culture that has to do with black representation in black people, so on the one hand black dandies come in as a critique of Minstrelsy, right. They're like. Oh, you think a black dandy. Is that? Let me show you right. The another way of Black Dandy can be right. I can have this fancy clothing I can have this education I can have this kind of like social life. I can have all of this, let. Let me. Show you that right, so there's one that's one version of it. Then there's a divorce version of it who is completely much more interested although it slide sometimes in respectability culture, it's I am going to respect my people and I'm going to be respected by majority culture, and this is the way that I'm going to represent myself right and and my aspiration. It's not just about pleasing you majority culture, but it's also about pleasing myself and understanding that I have a right to this. That's not just about a response to you. Then there are other kinds of people who are just you know really exuberant about the ways in which blackness maternity can go like. It's a huge time of experimentation again one of these moments of social upheaval, or in which we think about the jazz, ages and swaying like renaissance in Jazz. Age Are Co terminal. WHICH PEOPLE ARE EXPERIMENTING WITH GENDER? They're experimenting with sexuality. This is a period in which immigration to the US is experimenting with with class boundaries right so so there's this way which all of these things come together to create multiple kinds of black dandies who are in some ways conversation with each other and in conversation with both black culture right as well as majority culture, asking the question. What does a modern black person look like? What can that person embody? How is that person's embodied? And what relationship does clothing play to that? As again is kind of social semiotics that is constantly capable of being read and sending out messages

"By the way. That's Jimmy Cagney story. That could be taken right out of Jimmy. Cagney and his brother talking about why he needed to do this movie. You know it's it's it's hit your rag into this guy and I do think that there is an element and amy. I think you may be helped me wrap my head around this that also people like Jimmy. Cagney he's a bad guy but he's a known bad guy. He is a popular actor. So then you put them in this movie. That's light. That's a lovable. You're also going along for the Jimmy Cagney journey. I think I'm watching this movie as much as a story about Jimmy Cagney about George Cohen. I think you'll he's fantastic dancing so good you know Jimmy. Cagney is great and he gets recognized for an Academy Award in this movie after being ignored for playing a bad guy for so long. So I think you you mix that right thing together. It's like you put that right face with the right story. And you're already open to Jimmy Cagney. Because he's already been our screens. We like him. And you put them with a positive story. It becomes like it's like this this Hollywood alchemy that just explodes explodes. Something it's like. I loved Jimmy Kenyon. I love this. Let's go now. I think you're exactly right. I think Jimmy. Cagney makes this movie worked for me today and I will admit you know this is that I didn't see at a time when I was happier with America like I wonder if I if I had. I watched this movie in two thousand nine Ito would. I would my heart be sword because I was very proud of America and felt like we're on the right track. Would it be like yes in watching this film in? Two Thousand I'm you know looking at US being number one in. Cova desk like does that really avoid how I see? This flag-waving it does it? Make me dislike it like you. How much does the American anthropology of this moment affect how I see this movie and make me kind of uncomfortable and it is absolutely Jimmy Cagney? Who carries me through the joy of what this movie wants to say because I love him so much and yet his whole biography is exactly like this like he grew up really poor in the lower east side of New York? He's an Irish immigrant. His parents were you know his dad. I was like a boxer and a bartender. He was a street brawler and he winds up becoming this like Vaudeville tap dancer just to make money you know. He has really no prospects. He's not even a trained dancer. Like was what are the things I love about him? He knew one dance step but he kind of forced himself to learn and he used that to get into an audition and because he does really complicated danced up like. Oh you're good. So they let them in and then he just studied what everybody else was doing and worked his way up. I mean it's incredible. What by the way. I think some people this film because they go well. He wasn't that great of a dancer. He got by by really being an actor. Who can dance not a dance? Who Can Act and Fred Astaire? They really wanted fresh air for this party. Wouldn't do it because he felt that Georgia. I'm Cohen's dance. Moves were very stiff. And he was much more fluid Performer but I feel like I watch US movie after I read those kind of quotes about him not being a great dancer. I think that's crazy. He I mean he's performing he's really engaging performer and I. And maybe it's the Joseph Gordon Levitt all too I think when you have when you are a great actor and you can kind of dance. It makes a dance even better. Because I think you're you're really making a full performance of of it. You're you're really crafting a performance but I I look. There's nothing there that Mike. I don't think he's that good of a dancer. I mean I did you see that. Do you feel like he's not that good of a dancer I mean. He seems amazing. I think he's pretty good but a lot of why. I think that he is a good dancer is because I love him for this other musical. He did not do many musicals. He did one called footlights parade which I worship because Yeah I love parade. It's a busby Berkeley movie I would love to have a busby Berkeley movie on this list but it is hard because I actually. I'm a little nervous about playing a clip. I pulled a clip from Parade where it's an example of Jimmy. Cagney actually singing. Which I think is important here. Because we're GONNA play some clips of him in this movie later. And He's just he's Imitating Cohen in the way. He thinks you might watch this and think. Oh he can't sing that well he could sing a little better than this. You know his act singing okay. This is Jimmy Cagney singing. He tap dances later in the scene. He's a fantastic tap dancer. I think in foot late Barade- I'm adding caveats because the one thing about foot late parade that really ruins it for five minutes. Is this incredibly racist aid so that this is apologizing. Preemptively for that It's called Shanghai Lil and in the scene Jimmy. Cagney is playing. He's playing. He's acting a person who's acting so he's playing an actor playing a sailor who's trying to find his favorite Asian prostitute by Ruby Keeler. Who CANNOT DANCE? I got no lover. You little devil. Your jaw came this a Josh and Buddha. He Bring Back My love. Wow with even with that that disclaimer. I was still a little shock. Whoa yeah I mean not that we have to spend that much. Because I think we've addressed this in previous episodes but yes there's black facing this movie In a very small section of it but he know there's these inescapable things that like kind of Mar our history of these films because there are things. Oh yeah would like to see Jimmy. Jimmy Cagney singing in what was acceptable at a certain time. I want to acknowledge that like like we said in our previous episode when we talked about this like we have to acknowledge that. This shouldn't just be like cool. You know it's there. It's something that we have to look at and look and go like is. It is something that we want to put on a pedestal. Now you know can we appreciate parts and and and maybe get rid of other parts. Yeah I mean like the lack VCR. Which I was like. Oh God and I really wish for seven thousand reasons that I could have found a better clip of Jimmy. Cagney singing the part of the reason why couldn't is because he got Typecast so early on as a gangster. They didn't let him saying I mean this is really one of the only clips of him singing at all that I think exists and and yet they what you're saying about the kind of goodness that he has that irradiates I mean that's so much of his charm all the way like he was able to play gangsters. That people loved you. Know was a scary gangster when bogart shows up. You're like okay. I'm keeping an eye on you. You freaked me out but there's something about Jimi Jimi this electricity that he just had on on screen where you loved his characters even when you're GonNa Watch them die even when he gets famous for of course like shopping half a grapefruit in a girl's face like Whoa but they love him anyways for that and so he brings that ability to make people love. Whoever is playing to George going he makes you love Cohen in a way because of what he adds to it. Because of because of the very Jimmy Cagney and I think that's why he winds up winning. The Oscar year is a of course like this force of goodwill and patriotism. This hit this fact that George Cohen dies. But just Jimmy Cagney. You cannot say that. He's not giving this part his all. You know using the way that he is the way that he is just there. He is so intense like he is a performer. And if you look at the production of this. It is an impressive production. I mean from the local stage shows that they do as they're traveling around the Vaudeville circuit to win. They get to that one theater Where they're doing the big slapstick production to the Yankee. Doodle number though horses on stage like the production is so impressive that as certain point in the film when they have made a little bit of money and they go back to this farm they buy this farm and the families on the Pharma. My is this part of a Broadway musical because you're so used to seeing like a certain level performance on a on a stage in it. It's so well kind of done that. It took me like a beat back way seconds. This is this real life or is this another show really it really. Kinda took me off. Guard there yeah. It was kind of it. Seemed to because the family is like now. We are normal Americans and I wondered if it was a joke that he didn't seem like he was that good at chopping kindling as like. Are you a normal American? You've just given us the speech about how your normal American but you're pretty bad it. Chopping kindling a full suit like he was He didn't look like either adapted the farm life at all. No and there's part of me that was wondering if that scene was like criticism of people who think they are normal Americans when they're clearly a little bit off you know. He grew up on stage as a performer. Like is he is really the normal American that he thinks he says he is wall or actually what I like about it. Is this idea and this going back to this idea of where I think? There's a lot of truthfulness an acting. Here which is like that idea like. Oh I wish I just want to retire to a farmhouse. Just want to go on a beach somewhere and I think for most performers. They don't WanNa do that. I think they want the the idea of wanting to do that. But they don't actually want to do it and I feel like that's the push pull of Cohen. He's moving moving moving moving moving and even at the end when he's in his hammock you know he's reading variety you know he's like he he doesn't WanNa be there. He wants to talk to people and say he wants to be there but he doesn't want to be there now. I actually loved the variety seat. I mean he is offering like yeah. He gave real variety cover. That actually did exist it. It's it is a famous Headline Sticks could we? Can we just play the clip of it and then let's talk about because they sit here and I will say his context of people that he's talking to a bunch of young kids look at this young generation?

"And beyond the year. Nineteen forty two and Jimmy. Cagney is turned and tummy guns for tap shoes. It's Yankee doodle. Dandy everybody welcome to hold. I am Paul Scheer. I'm Amy Nicholson. This is the podcast. Amy where each week? We watch one phone from the top one hundred greatest films of all time. List two thousand seven edition to see if they're really as good as people say do they hold up. How have they influenced the films that we watch now today? We'll be talking about Yankee doodle. Dandy which maybe. This is the first time you're coming to our podcast because he sauce host The movie club last week so welcome but last week we did cabaret. And there's a lot of interesting feedback about cabaret Our facebook group determined. Yes this belongs on the list about two to one favor but I think there was a lot of debate just like you and I had amy about this film as it does. It belong on the list. Yeah there was a lot of love on the list for putting something like all that jazz of Chicago. In over cabaret there was a lot of love for people drawing images of you dressed like Liza Minnelli which I also appreciate. Thank you seth roble? I've seen some pretty amazing pictures. I really appreciate all of that and I liked that. He gave me a little like a hairy armpit to really lovely chatting star. Baby I know background but Gary Home. He tweeted at us and he said you know another great pod cabaret appeared in the middle of an incredibly cynical period in American culture from sixty nine to seventy five consider midnight cowboy easy rider last picture. Show Mash Chinatown Nashville. All great but despairing. I mean it's interesting that both cabaret and national end on photo upbeat songs suggest. Escapism was the only alternative to the existential hopelessness. I mean it took Lucas and Spielberg to pull Hollywood out of its depression You know that's that is interesting. I mean this is a very gritty period of American cinema that I think is look back very fondly on but it is incredibly bleak. Yeah it reminded me of something that Angela Ariza's later she said you know. I love the fact that we watch this cabaret so soon after Sullivan's travels because this is what happens when you seek pleasure and refuse to engage meaningfully with the world around you and just as you know. I'm still trying to grapple with how I feel about the movie stripping down the musical elements. They don't think we can get rid of it until we get more queer movies and musicals on the list. I I agree with that but I mean at the same time now nick. Domino brings up an interesting point. Says Cavalry is an excellent movie but I think it gets too much credit for being a queer film. Any kind of same sex intimacy is only obliquely alluded to and never shown onscreen while there are plenty of scenes with women being sexual for a male audience. Berlin had a large in vibrant gay and Trans Culture which isherwood participated in before the Nazis came to power. But you wouldn't know it from watching cabaret or at least beyond a few timid hints calculated to be not too offensive to the mainstream movie going American audience. Now that's an interesting point you know not to say that this is the defacto queer film but I think that these baby steps help change the dialogue or allow things to progress. We talked about this last week. How cabaret from stage to screen to then stage again has really continued to evolve. I think that you know it's it's hard to to judge it so harshly when it was trying to do so much time in a movie that wasn't rated X. Like midnight cowboy is rated X. You know I feel like to bridge that gap. You sometimes need a will and grace to kind of get you to a place where you don't have to make it a thing most fair. Yeah no it does. I mean I have to say there's sort of the matter of fact about cabaret actually like about it win. You realize that Michael York's character is by just like Oh okay. It's not like explain that to me. Or what is that you know? It's he says who is a you know as a deep down and it's just sort of taken as a given that he has this affair at the baron is just a thing that happens and there's something in the okay of course you had sex with him. I kind of appreciate about this movie. That must seems like bold in its nonchalant about it. I know I definitely agree. I think there's a lot of things to like. I don't think it's a perfect film but I think there are a lot of teams and choices made here that are incredibly forward thinking and especially for you know a female character and they do a lot of but no I think you have to applaud it on some level and again you have to look at it through the scope and the time in which it was made. That's fair although I will say Guy Some Tony Road. And he said you know if we're to have a film on this list about a promiscuous delusional independent charismatic woman who has a hard time accepting love. I would rather it be breakfast at Tiffany's in spite of that. One problematic element. Well yeah there is a very big problematic element in that movie but no film is a great another great film. I mean what do you think amy? Breakfast at Tiffany's versus cabaret definitely feels like breakfast at Tiffany's is more in the cultural conversation. One of the things that surprises me about this is that breakfast at Tiffany's on it doesn't feel like a movie. That should obviously be on this. I think I checked more times to make sure that it wasn't on because I was like. That's Weird. It just seems like it would be voted on obviously and then we talk about. Does it still deserve to be on? Is it of just never being here at all? Yeah it's a bizarre omission but I also think it's not so bizarre when you look at the makeup of all these films which are very much male lead films. I mean there's very few female lead pictures on this list and maybe that was part of it that it wasn't kind of in the design. Geist of you know these other for lack of a better term macho movies million war films. There's a million of these seventies films with male leads. It's either there's A. There's not really that much of of those kind of romantic comedies. On a list like this. That's true and I do notice when we have a movie. Say like a cary grant movie on this list. I find myself getting very protective either. Like oh we can't kick this off. It's cary grant even know. Cary grant has so many movies on this list. Get when I think you'll like do I'm going to talk about this. I guess in Hollywood terms because this is what I think cooking drive down the street. It'll you see every like a lot of Hollywood actors? Get boil down to that shorthand like Hollywood. It's a handful of people it's James Dean it's Marilyn Monroe it's Audrey Hepburn it's Humphrey Bogart. Did you ever see that picture of all of them eating at that diner that one night I mean? I can't believe that photography all were there seeing that all were there. But what I'm trying to say is that I think it's really interesting that Of the major female stars I would say we use this kind of our shorthand for Hollywood especially Hollywood in the fifties and sixties Audrey Hepburn end end Marilyn Monroe. It's not my favorite Marilyn Monroe that we have on your some like it hot and then there is no audrey which is surprising is A. I'm trying I'm saying that allowed to myself because I get so protective of her letting go of any other any great actors on this list but I mean do not have Audrey Hepburn anywhere. That's insane it really is. I mean I was surprised to read that. Come in as well as like wait. It's not on the list but we're almost the end of the list. We have not watched it and double check it so I feel like we're right and I wonder Why that is maybe it is because in the world that this this was made and people were able to at least go. You know what that character that Mickey Rooney plays is. Problematic should not maybe embrace it. Maybe although I don't think of this list as having that much foresight but maybe they did. Yeah I don't know I mean if there's a fan edit of breakfast at Tiffany's where you just edit him out right George Lucas GonNa get around to that like the ultimate additive. Breakfast at Tiffany's where you know a little bit creepy about how much you love that film by the way. If you didn't join US last week we had a really fun. Unspoiled live streaming event. It was our spool party where we talked about clueless. We showed you how to do some hair styles from coolest even brought in relationship expert. Ron Glickman To give people some dating advice and we're going to do it again as a matter of fact next week next Monday night at five thirty once more we are going back to this pool party to host the thirty year anniversary tribute to house party.

Rex Chapman: The Content We're Here For

"I want you to open twitter. Look at your time line and tell me what you're seeing. I'm seeing pandemics and I'm seeing politics and I'm seeing. Maybe a little bit of Tom Brady in Tampa Bay which is might be the weirdest part of the whole thing and then I'm seeing a guy in the rain running into a stop sign and I'm seeing a kid getting smacked in the face by an elephant and I'm seeing another kid given out free. Hugs at nursing homes and That's that's what I'm looking for. Where are you seeing this? I'm seeing that from the most unlikely source. I think maybe ever which is At Rex Chapman Ryen. Which do I notice rex? Chapman popping up on your timeline. It was probably a year ago in the spring of Twenty nineteen and I started to get the texts from friends who were saying. Have you seen this video? And have you seen that video? And have you seen? Who is posting these videos? I'm part of this generation where I remember. Rex Chapman as Mr Kentucky basketball. I mean this must be the greatest high school basketball player that ever lived and then he's the first draft pick of the Charlotte Hornets and then he's in he's the white dude in the dunk contest. And then he's hanging thirty nine on Jordan. What he's with the Miami Heat he's Rexon. He's King Rex. He's sexy rexy and I'm like there's no way this is the same rex. Chapman has to be this other. Shabina out there. That just happens to be some borrow twitter superstar and it turns out they are the exact same person I think. A lot of people seeing XS tweets for the first time had a similar reaction but I also find it very funny that some people may be in their twenties and younger might not even know who rex. Chapman is or they just think. Oh yeah the guy on twitter. You does the videos so Ryan. Let's educate them and refresh people's memories. Take us back to Kentucky late. Nineteen Eighty S. What was rex? Mania Steel Diaper Dandy. That's going to be one of the all time legend the perspective. I'll give you that. I was a north Carolinian living all tobacco road and REX. Chapman was the guy that you made. Sure you got back to your television by eleven o'clock to see sportscenter just to see what he had done he just was. It was electrified. He was so smooth he was dribble behind his back. He was dishing the ball he was Dunkin. He was doing everything that require. Frankly white dude's weren't doing in college basketball that time and this is before the Internet before you could go on Youtube and post. Your own highlight video. People had heard about him but they hadn't seen him so any chance. You had to watch this kid from Kentucky. Play Ball you did it. He was foul before viral was thing. You've been under incredible pressure. And yet you just go on with life every day even though you're probably the biggest folk hero. I guess it's Cogan. Robert Disagree with that. I don't know I just take day by day. So rex was this huge star. And as you mentioned being Kentucky there was a massive spotlight on him. How did he handle that? He handled it by Kinda circle in his own wagons for me. I just wanted to play basketball. And that's it the playing part at Kentucky no problem I loved it. I was good at it. Could handle it no worries it was off court stuff. That really weighed on me. He didn't go to the cafeteria He tried to go to bars with his teammates and he was met at the door by the balancer. Who wrecks man? I'd love Login here. But everyone knows you are if I let you in here. The police will be here in four minutes. It just was it was it was a lonely existence surrounded by people all the time but alone every moment every minute that I wasn't in class or at practise either hsun by myself or sleeping and I was I think I was rationalizing as I'm getting my rest but I was depressed than just in you know back then. You didn't talk about that stuff. He believed that eighteen nineteen years old. He was just getting his rest. But the reality was He was dealing with depression by just going to sleep St cope with it. He started playing horses. He did what everyone in Kentucky does and He started playing the horses. A pretty young age and That was another time and place where he could feel normal. You know he could go to the horse track and he could put his face. You know in that race inform and everybody else's word about their race informs and they won't bother him so after his sophomore off more year REX declares for the NBA draft and he ends up with the brand new expansion Charlotte Hornets for the eighth in the draft and their first in the NBA. The Charlotte Hornets Select Rex. Chapman of Kentucky. What was that like a? It is hard to describe to someone who didn't experience it. Would Hornets Mania was like in Charlotte? This is bad basketball team. This is a team best player was Keller trip Yuka but they set an NBA record for attendance and they sold out every single game for years. It was Muggsy bogues and Dell Curry and REX. Chapman was the Young Guy. He was the face of the franchise. You the best player on the team he was in the NBA dunk contest. Meena I mean and going behind his back I mean he was he was a sensation his NBA career go. He never played an all star game. I mean he made the all rookie team The average fifteen points for game over a dozen years. He had his moments. There was a famous night where he hung thirty nine. Michael Jordan and it wasn't just Michael Jordan. It was the ninety six bowls you know the unbeatable 's you in Phoenix. He became you know as the six man. Essentially he became the most popular guy on the team. And so it was a he everywhere he went. There was a following the end. Why didn't he keep you got old? Has All of us? You know? Father Thomas undefeated and You know over the last three years of his career he had seven surgeries It just got to the point where he knew in that two thousand season with the Phoenix signs that that was going to be his last year because it just got to the point where his whole game was explosiveness and he was not. He did not have the capability to do that anymore. I I knew I was going to retire at the end of this this twelve year. I just wasn't very good. I was spending more time in the training room than I was. Playing wasn't fun at that point and I I had an emergency appendectomy right near the end of the season. I got back home and a doctor gave me a prescription for Oxycontin They gave me that Oxycontin. And I'm I'm telling you within two days I was in love like `I greatest thing I've ever had in my life

White House readies emergency funds to combat coronavirus

"Stock markets fall and people worldwide worry about the deadly coronavirus the White House is readying an emergency budget to deal with the outbreak with more on that A. B. C. news Washington DC correspondent Andy field how soon we might see a dandy and how is it going to be spent for always they're already spending money within a run out of it and this is in terms of trying to find some way to treat this of antiviral that's of course a lot harder than actually finding a vaccine which would prevent people from doing this in the first place and they are working feverishly on that but we need a lot more money to do it and here's the irony in all this here listen three weeks ago the president presented a budget to Congress that actually cut some of the money the funding for basic research to dig into these types of things and to find cures and vaccines and things money that would've been designated for the CDC or NIH and now they're saying wow I guess we need this money so let's let's get it now how much money are we talking about Andy I will be working on it right now kellyanne Conway at the White House today so that they have task force meeting about the justice problem every day and the number by the way you're looking for Susan the health and Human Services already tapped into an emergency infectious disease rapid response phone and they want to transfer more than a hundred thirty million more from other HHS accounts but of course you have to replace that money that you've taken out so it looks like we're talking at least a hundred and thirty million if not more which you know sounds like penny used when you're looking at trillion dollar budgets but everybody's pretty hard fought here in Washington certainly seems like it would be something that would divert across the aisle there's really even despite the weather is a clean bill or not it's something that shouldn't have any trouble passing at some point no it shouldn't but they were not unusual times here do you know who receive the recall was that almost a year ago where they want to quit spending bill and we had a government shut down for several weeks until the president cut money for his border wall which he did not give and do you actually gave up and gave in on that here but then just took the money from the defense department declared an emergency which by the way is still records obviously with the stock market sinking more than three percent today at least on the Dow and the nasdaq and S. and P. five hundred for that matter that's got to be bringing a lot of attention to this what is interesting we we talked to a bunch of everyday investors and certainly this is no scientific study but because we've gone through what we went through in two thousand eight with a lot of investors looking there for one K. is literally sliced in half Imad huge market crisis back then did these giant swings in the market if the don't you know mostly continuous and credible downward spiral it does seem to make people's nervous today as it did back on and a lot of times people think well this is a real one day reaction to the news and we'll be back tomorrow we'll have to see about that because we have not seen this kind of rapid spread and it's proven actual pandemic which means worldwide infections so far it's mostly confined to China we've seen smaller outbreaks and I am certainly deadly outbreaks and other nations here and we've been incredibly lucky so far here in the United States were I think we have less than sixty cases of most of those who come from one

"Offers an intense perspective on the issues and feelings most prescient in the poet's mind to that end Ellie Ellie Sada's latest collection towards the end challenges a range of concerns troubling our contemporary world today. So Ellie welcome back to three. Ci Thank you. Thanks for having me Nev- it. The title here. Seems a little ominous towards the end leading to the end of the world as we know it but the world as we know it I you know I think as I was. Finalizing the book Earlier in the year. And I'm thinking well. This is a bit of a melodramatic title. And then I turn on the news now. Actually I just step out at you know to the back yard and I can't breathe because of the ember storm you know. This is interesting learning new language. Courtesy of the Times. We live in so there. Is You know parts of Australia. Burning soon have another of the horse. Men of of the apocalypse disease being unleashed in Wuhan China. At exact same time we had you know trump trying desperately to start the Third World War by by killing that Iranian General I thought well the four horsemen are here so my title was in to a to an in some ways necessarily see the physical demise here. It's it's more for the values and concerns that we hold dear if I may I'll just read the first poem and we can discuss it in a little more detail. It's called the singer. This is how I croon my son singing Humpty dumpty a melody. He screams out in the absence of my song. I wasn't nearly as loud toddler. My voice vanished from the void of my father's car father's es sorry. I remember him having vaguely while driving wrapped up in his own world in mind. My son's medley moves onto Jack and Jill recalling the tune. I whistled yesterday. Did it ever exist? Did I ever have a voice? Even as an infant to seek to mit a whimper. Our member dad crying out the lyrics of an old Persian. Dirge wobbling from the speaker's not long after moving to Australia homesickness. Haunting his larynx like ghost howling in a haunted house. So much for parenting the loss of the music I never could muster. I'm here for my son's nursery rhymes to enact the presence unsung words now. My interpretation and this is the thing about poetry. It's open to all sorts of possibilities. The music the music of the child the music of the father and the music of your father and your music seems to get lost in there somewhere and your voice. Because there's your father recollecting purge at the music is a wider connect with these past life your son Humpty Dumpty Jack and Jill vs the medleys all Utah of the future. So but this is my interpretation. But I'm just wondering if that coincides with your intention but also then the question Your Voice. Your music Great I just want to say that you read it very well and I think I would like you to do all my readings from here on if that's okay look into. I guess I wouldn't call it an ironing. It's too weak word but I guess the contradiction is that it's actually written in my voice. The whole poem is actually in my voice. It's a little bit like Plato in the Republic. Saying all this nasty things about art but the Republicans written as a play with characters. So you know there's that sort of again i. I guess this is paradox. I guess is the word so so here is a Paul supporters. You know saying I don't have a voice but it's actually nothing but the poet's voice I think that that's sort of the lost there and it's something that identify in the rest of the collection is not so much for voice of personal you know emotional autobiographical identity. But one of something deeper something more more meaningful which are identified to be the voice of universal human subjectivity. Now that's one of the oldest things that poets tried to do scene at a time of the great epic poets. They want. I wanted to speak on behalf of humanity. Now this is something. A modern poetry mob has certainly rejected strongly beginning with romanticism. Which says look you know. It's just you the lyric I expressing your feelings. All the way to sort of like postmodernism and which says the lyric is bad but any mention of we is also not okay. Only he only express the immediacy of language. And that's all you ever do and I kind of feel like well. I don't I mean I I mean that's a tall these traditions but the quest that I guess I felt as I was putting the poems in this book together on a road some additional poems and arranged upon where particular wide at Kinda tells of sort of a story and is not so much about finding my personal voice. You know how do I how do I express myself? But it's about well. What is the voice? That's is needed for our times. And I think that's the kind of the big universal question which is perhaps even a political question. Wouldn't you raise some very mighty topics vertical philosophical social There's one called saga the more obscure and undesirable the more palatable. Ice Scowl still bothers me. And she's been dead for at least a decade. Her husband comically defendant. A downtrodden man wants a Communist. How much more fascinating radical with? My grandparents emigres escaping style and coming to Iran to found a trotskyite cell instead of Banal Matriarch and dull ethics patriarch immersed in gossip and religion. As a child. I hated any a few things more than being left alone with him. He once believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat when he died. I couldn't some in a single tear from my added on to his grandson. He'd being so simple meaningless as for Anna perhaps not really possible that she migrated as a teenage girl from Baku to Iran for more exceptional reason than giving birth to a son. Who'd made a woman who didn't give birth to me? Jeans are poor substitute for the fable of revolutions that universal family. Thank you but this notion of needing a viable needing a sag that's momentous and yet the irony or the opposite is the sort of mundane Mundane missive life Yeah totally I mean. I think you know this is my third book of poems. I kind of exhausted. That's sort of like Again reflection on the personal and familial and the mundane I know. That's what a lot of poets do and they do. Well you know since I mean who's to say that William Williams was wrong to talk about her red wheelbarrow on K. Good not yourself that and I've done that but I kind of feel like especially the Times though was writing this collection of putting it together and I kind of begins around the time that I live into by and this is two thousand and eight and I see the global financial crisis at that really impacts me and I feel like perhaps there is a tradition of poetry that is much more easily impacted by what's happening in the world by the economic social and political. Then there are other traditions. You know the the great sort of I mean this is this is again. It is also paradoxical thing we think about romanticism. We think well. It's the poetry of you know some some English Dandy wandering around and looking at daffodils. Okay it's that but it is also the poetry of the same Dandy as a young person going to be a part of the French Revolution. So so you know that sort of again. I feel like there is a a traditional poetry. That is more public. That is more We can talk about its political. Buddy and what what sense of the word is as as people listening to this and listening to your excellent readings of my poems that. I'm not a preachy person. Nevertheless these are poems that express a desire for universality of the human experience. I mean you've got some lovely lines at times. I mean the economy's manifest destiny and that juxtapose -sition manifest destiny was part of the American agenda expansion prearranged by God over an indefinite area and yet now applying that to the economy as that he's now want is determining allies those sorts of images and juxtapose that you've created. I forget which one that was in their alphabet city Alphabet yeah so that. That's sort of those the images that you're able to provide to make us think more profoundly more deeply. Yeah thanks I I mean I mean you know it's Yeah it's a kind of again referenced. Historical things look as you said manifest destiny but that that particular Isabelle a cafe. They used to being in North called alphabet city. And and and you know I mean I. I was away from Australia for some time. Then I came back and didn't move back to Northcote. Couldn't afford it but but eventually when I went back and also well I go to this cafe where I used to hang out and it's just not there anymore and and I will on why you know what what is happening here. Look really and I thought well. It's there is to concreteness of the city. Being being pulverized due to the forces of capital and nobody I mean. It's it's an absurd thing to say what I don't want this old. You know cafe to be knocked down and replaced by auto residential flats built with you know to to enhance the value of capital for investors. Who Am I to say no to that? But I mean that's a very symbolic and visible way in which our lives are being impacted by this extraordinary juggernaut of capital to use a Marxist term the jagged of capital in many ways destroys the spirit of a place. I mean one of the things I've noticed in my son is that when I first moved in the dwellings were sort of seventies style and such like and now they being pulled down and two story brick mausoleums going from fence. Lan Events Line What is the old quarter Acre block and the veggie patch in the back? But it's it's a Y Y of how life is represented we see as leading allies and it's being destroyed in many

The 123s of Window Boxes

"Going to start out with a plant Rama. One two three the first the second and third things that you should know or do if you want to start a new garden project or a practice and today. That project is window boxes. I want to put window boxes on the front of my house. Ellen what is your number one thing I need to know. The first thing you need to think about is what floor. Are you going to put them on and that relates directly to how those window boxes are going to be attached because if you are hanging them from her second or third floor window boy do you need to be sure those are solidly fixed in place? You do not WanNa conch somebody on the head with a window box that is poorly attached. And since my background is is from. New York City. Where oftentimes these window boxes and containers were many floors above the sidewalk? This is something you really need to think about. If you're if you're on a first floor window probably going to be walking underneath those window boxes and you can use a more casual hanger that may fit over the sill but if you are planting your window boxes on a higher floor you need to wire those in place. So that even the strongest wind or scampering squirrel is not going to knock it loose so I say I know that's not fun. It's not fun like choosing great plants but it's essential. You got to do that. I my number one was noticing what direction the front of your house face. That's a great one. I didn't even think of that. Because if it's facing north you're going to need to use shade loving plants now. Nothing wrong with that. Of course there's some great Begonias ferns and everything. But if your expectation is you are going to have window boxes with cascading geraniums like you see all over Europe and the friend of your house in deep shade. You might need to either rethink the plan for window boxes in the front of your house or changed the expectations that you have and Ellen your point about the securely fastening them made me also think about an alternate number one which is how am I gonNA water these boxes yes now. That was my number three. Oh well then we'll get to that. So what's your number two? My number two was about soil and drainage because lots of times you by the window boxes and they may not have drainage holes in the bottom and if they don't you need to get out your handy dandy electric drill and I would put one inch hole six inches on center for the length of your window box. So that you get good drainage in there and then I would put a lightweight. Potting mix do not fill those window boxes with soil from your garden. You want them to be lighter weight and you want them to drain quickly. So I say get those drainage do like how. I'm like putting two into one because I'm cheating so my number two is making sure you have adequate drainage and a good lightweight soil that is also going to drink quickly. That was my number three that same wavelength. What was your number? Two pretty amazing number two is to measure where you want them and decide what size and types of boxes you're going to install. Are you going to have wooden boxes? That have plastic inserts. Or are you going to? Ha- want them removable. Or are you going to just have the plastic boxes that you buy at the store and you're going to put them on brackets of some sort So that was I was going for style of boxes in number two and then I was going to go back to function in number three which was the drain the tools and the soil which I was also sneaking to well. You know it's interesting. You mentioned style because what the front of Your House looks like is probably going to influence the style of window box that you choose and where you live is also going to determine the style of window box because if you live someplace where you can have. That Window. Box planted year round. You might go for something more substantial. That's going to be longer lived like would because you could have. You have a rotating display you know you could have ornamental cabbages and cycling's in Viola in the wintertime depending on where you live or you might if you live someplace really really cold. Just fill those window boxes with an interesting arrangement of of bows and berries in the winter. So I didn't even think about that but that's a really good thing to consider the color the style the material that the box is made out of in number three ellen which was the holes and the fresh potting soil. And I I I also snuck. I really cheated. I stuck a third thing and that was to always. Every year mix a tablespoon of inorganic granular fertilizer. Such as plant tone With a tablespoon of a time release synthetic fertilizer. Azmacort is probably the most common one available if you do that every year with fresh potting soil. Your plants are going to grow gangbusters all summer long without any additional fertilization need it. Now I have to ask a tablespoon. That's for a window box. That's how big twenty four inches. Maybe thirty anywhere from twenty four to thirty inches cat would be good. If you have a really huge long window box underneath a picture window you probably want to do two three times that amount. Okay all right. Well my number three again. I'm cheating was to plant and water now. The planting is the fun part right. That's the best part and don't be afraid to really fill those window boxes up and make them look gorgeous. They're there to give you pleasure and you also want to make sure that you choose plants that live well together you're not gonNA put a succulent next to affirm that needs constant soil moisture so choose your plants wisely and think about how you're going to water them if they're on the ground floor you go round with your host of your watering can. But if they're on the second or the third floor you might want to consider drip irrigation and I. I know that I'm a big fan of drip irrigation. And it's not something that likes quite as much but for me doing it for clients it was really essential because I couldn't I couldn't trust them to water when things needed to be water. That's why they had me there. But a simple simple drip set up on your window boxes really takes away that responsibility and makes it much easier for you to do the other things for you to dead head for you to fertilize for you to groom your plant. It just takes that chore. Off of the schedule Ellen. I'm all for drip irrigation. I just don't if I had a magic wand and have it instantly installed yeah containers. I'd do it in a second. It's just a little bit too lazy to research and make the opposite of lazy seal. I'm just going to say that right now but we all have our priorities. Yeah so one.

Choosing Photo Travel Gear

"Hey everybody I'm Karen Hutton. And welcome to the Wu. Today I introduce a new feature on the Wu. QNA as those of you who listen in regularly know by now. I have a lot of things to talk about. Get off my chest. And that's all fine and Dandy but I'm open to questions to so recently. I opened winded up bananas. Some folks what they like to hear about our fabulous end intrepid first up. Is Jim Zuffelato. Who Asks this question? We I just got back from a fabulous trip in Paris and surrounding areas. We went to New York for a few days. And improvisation I pondered long and hard hard about what equipment to bring. How many camera bodies what lenses? What am expecting in the way of photo ops with your travel schedule? I'd like to know how you you plan for work and for just family vacations. So that's Jim's question and thank you for that by the way because that's always a big question and sometimes sends me around the band. I got to admit but I can share some approaches that I've developed to that question that made my gear selection debtor easier ear to carry my mind calmer and my muse happier first of all right off the bat. You GotTa get good with the fact that you're not going to have the perfect lens for every situation and then let it go. I think what drives everybody off. The deep end me included is when we imagine that we have to cover all the possibilities. BILITY's 'cause you know Famo- kills so let it go we'd hopper be creative with what you bring start with. What your heart most desires tires to create from this experience? Do you like to shoot architecture. Mostly Street and people portraits landscapes cityscapes wide-angle fantastical goodness you. You know just kind of make a little list. You know like have to get this stuff. These would be nice. May I can live without these because making the decision about all that narrows the field. Then then I go straight to this one. How much time are you going to be on your feet? Ten hours. A day combing streets Peres hiking in the Alps. GotTa Sherpa Purpose. I mean really. Just imagine yourself in whatever. Your scenario is an include any neck shoulder back problems you might be dealing with because those are huge and they. They don't get better the longer you're on your feet. I've discovered and decide how much you WANNA SCHLEP keep coming back to the fact that gear does not get lighter as the day wears on. Trust me now hone it in a little bit more decide which lenses can do double duty just to give you an example on a recent trip to Italy for one of my photo retreats retreats. My personal goal was to create a visual book of my experience. We were starting in Venice. And then heading to the DOLEMITE's I mean these are two very you. Different areas very different subject matters shooting distances. All of it. I mean for a minute I went out of my mind. What how I honed in was I decided I wanted to make images that it ranged from this particular kind of perspective driven intimate shot that I love to do and then of course I love my grand mountain landscapes gapes but I wanted to make really really strong statements with every shot so I shoot Fuji Film The eighteen to one thirty five and the fifty five to two hundred which is an older lens? But it's a great telephoto Lens in its lighter. They did most of the work now. The eighteen to thirty five did a decent job bob of isolating my intimate subjects. I mean would I have liked more specialized lines for that sure and again if I had a team of attendance to carry my gear which which I just don't have and then I use the fifty five to two hundred only in the mountains really and I was happy to have it Yes would have loved to have my one hundred four hundred but again team Sherpa was nowhere to be found so head to adjust a bit to my gear instead of just having all my gear had sort of adjust asked my vision but that limitation worked great for the strong compositions. I was looking for that. Forced me to make really strong decisions and stick with them. MM commit to them and I was really happy with the results. Now I will admit that as an afterthought and unable to battle my fear of missing out foam oh I did break down and throw my ten twenty four into the bag and I literally never used it. Now if your focus is more on street photography portrait's and things like that. Maybe a couple of Primes is more your style. That's legit you decide. You just have to choose and then commit to the decision and don't look back. Whatever you do set your mind to work with the limitation you set for yourself and make good creative exercise and just know you're GonNa love what you get by leaning into it now second camera? Yup I do on my trip to Italy. I took two X T. Three's you do it with two different ones a bigger one. And then you have a little pocket camera that just slips into your pocket. Your second camera could even be your phone but it's always good to have some kind of backup and the fun thing is they'll all help you see in different ways days. which is what will give your visual story even more awesome perspective so that's my little spiel about cameras and lenses it is and for what it's worth a manuchehr the peripherals that I also consider when selecting gear for a trip? You may have this all figured out Jim but other people listening you know might be Kinda wondering so so the things I think about to our filters holders rings I use Lacroix which is a company out of Spain I love the quality of their glass their holders holders are really really light and super easy. They don't break. I just never have trouble with him. Think about your camera strap so everybody uses a camera strap but you're gonNA be walking long periods of time popping your camera off the strap or whipping up to your face a little bit different when you're traveling so so really think this went through and figure out how you move and what's GonNa be ergonomically sound for you. I use a meg. Poll which works with my really really right stuff L. plates I use Tripod at night in cities and for long exposures end for big shots in the mountains. So you know that plate is pretty much always on my camera so the meg pull works best for me but whatever works for you. A lot of people use peak design black rapid. Whatever as long as it works for you now camera bags? Those are always always a challenge for me. The quick thing I'll say is I usually have one that is for the airline travel so I keep my camera gear all in one bag and don't have things things spread around lately. I've been using the peak design forty five l.. It's padded and I can fit so much in it and it fits in the overhead and then I pack a smaller one for every day what that smaller one is will depend on whether to be in a city or hiking. I also have it. This pretty beat up crumpled five million dollar home bag and I use the beat up one sometimes because you know a woman travelling around the city with camera gear by myself a lot of the time the either or is attended DNA ten because it's smaller looks looks a little nicer. If that's what I want it just has a different configuration. So again comes down to how I'm going to use it. And how conspicuous I WANNA look. Then if I'm in the mountains and hiking a lot actually use a super lightweight twenty leader hiking backpack ways practically nothing and then I use padded lens covers and mix them in with the extra clothing layers water. And you know other stuff you need when you hike in the temperatures are going to change or what have you. It just works so much better because camera backpacks tend to be a little bit heavy. And this little lightweight twenty L. hiking thing just smashes down to nothing weighs nothing is super easy to bring then then remember whether Protection Lens Cloths Extra Batteries chargers power converter adapters power strips. USB Hub power brick for your phone phone either external hard drives for backup or a pile of SD cards. If you don't WanNA use hard drives bring your laptop or Ipad or whatever computing device you like to use news and then whatever other goodies make your life. Smooth streamlined in prepped. For the best time ever. Because that's the key having the best time ever I. Also this is a sidebar. Not Everybody thinks about it but I also advised TRIPP insurance. Make sure it offers the kind of coverage that works for you. Do I always make sure if I'm hiking in the DOLEMITE's little more rugged. I make sure I've got kind of insurance where a helicopter can come pick me up and take me out. I don't need that if five minutes city so you know. Consider what you're doing and what kind of coverage you need and get insurance for your gear to some companies can do it all some specialized. You may have to cross pollinate a little bit so do your research ahead of

Travel to Tainan, Taiwan

"I'd like to welcome the show. Katie Liang who is come to us from Vancouver British Columbia. Come to talk to us about Tynan. In the country of Taiwan Katie is from photo spire D- Dot Com. She is a blogger there and we'll put a link to that in the show notes and now katy welcome to the show. Thanks for having amy. So what's your connection. I with Taiwan so I was actually born and raised in Taipei Taiwan which is the capital city of Taiwan. I moved to Canada when I was eleven years old. And I've been back and forth in between the two actually look in Taiwan for four years after graduating university and I just recently moved back to Vancouver have but I will go back to Taiwan again in the next few months or so you have two homes is really what you're telling us. Essentially I cannot sort of home because my family's here and my cats is here. I think spiritually I really really Miss Taiwan and I think I think that's where I really feel at home. Excellent will in. Why should someone go to this? Part of Taiwan. We've talked about Taiwan the show three times before I think this is an area we have dealt with. Why should we go to China so I want to talk about ten specifically because I really enjoy going in there so it can be the short weekend trip for me? But I've been there numerous times and each time so much to discover and I think the essence assists me about the warmth the people there and history and culture can find there and we're in the southern part of the island on the western coast of Taiwan so the opposite end of the airline pretty much from Taipei. I guess you could say that. It's about four hours drive from Taipei. But if you take the high speed rail it's only two and a half hours. What should we do in China? What itinerary recommend for US Tannen on is really about the street food so the first thing going to try is definitely to find some Thomas Breakfast so breakfast is essentially things psych? Mike Soya milk so if you find a place where they make fresh soya milk it can really taste of roast. You can also find things. I Chinese donuts and counting style armlet so those are really excellent. They don't want to donate is. I don't know what a Chinese style Avocados got pastry. And then the egg on top and you can flavor with sway sauce and I think they usually ask some corn or pork floss but it depends John. What can flavor you want? It's a really good start today because you have so many different things. Is there a particular region of the city street or or vendor. You would send us to for street food street. Food obviously changes sometime. Yeah so actually confined to bacchus everywhere throughout Ireland. Four China China is especially they have very unique. Take on breakfast so they like to eat. Things are really heavy for breakfast so you might find. Do things like Taro cake for breakfast or shrimp meatballs for breakfast. So those things are a bit more heavy but down really very flavorful. They really give you the energy for the rest of the day. We'll let me let me pin you down a little bit here so I arrived. Let's say by train high speed rail. I get out of the train station. Should I hit the very first vendor. I find or is there particular direction. I should head to find the best street food. So if you get up to high speed rail you won't be in town and city centres. It's actually. It's actually quite a drive from city centre so you can take a shuttle or hop on the regional train and get there here in maybe ten or so and since the descend to attend find much more options so once I've been city centre. They're we're all over the place. I would start my search the Tannen train station. So there's lots of streets and lots of street vendors there and I'm sure any one of them will be really good next okay so after breakfast you'll probably to explore a bit more so I recommend the streetcars Gosh Shannon's street. What's unique about the streets? It was once one of the busiest streets in China because of trade the town I used to be really famous canals and waterways. That was how people got around in days overtime. Dock became less popular and the street fell under repair now all the government has really revived it. And now it's become a cultural hub of so you can find this stroz cafes frosts and lots of things to do that's a good place to check out the street one more time Hsien no streets so it's spelled S. H. E. N. N. O. N. G. But one thing had to be careful of that has to have a lot of different crafts and handmade stuff there so most of the vendors don't want you to take photos yeah you you can take photos of the streets for not of the products are selling in. What kind of products am I going to see it? Sh- street very unique seven years. I I can take home because I find that if you go to a souvenir store general you find the same stuff. All throughout the island are Chanel. Street can find glow pouches. You can use for coins and there's also traditional closing got it. This is when you say street. This is more like an alley. Yeah exactly so if you look on Google maps is actually really short. Okay Yeah so is you are for you probably we're too. I think it's a good time to cool down because hands generally very warm authored a year. So you might want to go and in have some shaved ice and so one place. I recommend as Code Eugen. It's spelled Y O U C h e the N. G. so very famous for the mango shift is and that's usually during the summer months. That's when the mangoes are in season and the most suites and so you have to order the mango shaved ice. If you go there during the summer so it's better to order strawberries in the winter because that's when strawberries we saw in season then after chastise onto more food because this is really just food brings allow memories of place and I really liked to discover food cities to food. I find out fascinating because of that after that I recommend for land she can go to do south for the Dandy Noodle Noodle is also unique Tatan it's actually become uh-huh so famous that it's the number one search word fourteen. Okay Okay and so. There's a story behind it so it used used to be that fishermen in town then they would have a few months of rough season. Were unable to go out to see and so this guy who he wants to to survive over the few months so he started selling noodles at Temple Square and because he was carrying the noodles over like a shoulder pole as he named her Danzon. Nudo for that. You're sorry you by Chinese is not as good as here's the meaning of the word is Dan's I is our knees for the shoulder. Polls OCHRE got it. You'll find actually several locations for Danzon. You'd in China and all claim to be the original and I'm not quite sure which is actually the original but the one I went is actually actually the most humble looking I should say and this right across from chicken tower. which is the most famous landmark container? So it should be it'll find Quite easily and it's very good snack food for lunch or for any time of the day actually okay and you see ah the Tower Chicano Tower C H I H K an correct. Yeah so that brings onto the next eighteen points. It's of interest to check out the tower because it is mostly landmark in China and lots of stories and legends behind a plays You'll find out. There's nine turtle looking statues placed throughout the compound. Yeah they symbolize strength because they carried tower which is interesting. There's also this myth. That's there was like a tunnel dot com next tower to another nearby forts switch. I'll talk about later. There were used by the Dutch in earlier days. The two towers are connected to the Dutch so the Dutch they had a colony colony here in town trading city. Yes was one of the early years establishments in Taiwan and so the Dutch came around around sixteen hundreds and they built a fort called. Well we call it today on PM sports and then lead it. Also builds Chicano she can tower and a bunch of other landmarks and Tannen and so a lot of architecture. Here is really inspired by that area. Time not that. This tower looks Dutch. So yeah she kantar actually does now look Dutch because being through several changes and so now it looks more Chinese after that I would recommend checking out the other folks I was talking about. which is this is a bit on the outskirts of town? You'll likely get due to afford by the streets so the old St is another interesting place at checkout. Because has the many street vendors for drinks and snacks and dessert. You might find things like Tofu. Pudding desserts my find things like the voice Oyster omelets which is famous in Taiwan. The Ford has so much history. You can find a remains the original wall on account pound literally a wall right next to you this memorial hall. That explains the history behind a consider photos and can see the artifacts remaining take time

"Also its distribution could creep northwards during the warmer months especially in port cities thanks to the widespread distribution of age if die and even in those more northern or more southern places like a little bit outside of the mosquitoes year a year long environmental requirements it would just be reintroduced yet to be like. Oh it's warm. In the summer I'll die off in the winter and then be reintroduced Yep knowing the the evolutionary origins of Donges one thing but when did humans actually I recognize the disease. Yeah so it's around the late eighteenth century seventeen seventy nine to be exact act that we see what is considered to be the first angie pandemic in seventeen seventy nine. There are descriptions of donkey like illness and Java in in Egypt and in the following year we see it pop up in Philadelphia and this is actually when it gets its colloquial name breakbone fever was coined by Benjamin Rush and He was also a physician. And so to give you an idea of the scale of this epidemic in Philadelphia. He saw over the course of. You've like two months around a thousand people. He treated them for donkey two months. One thousand people in Philadelphia he alone. Yeah wow and so. I couldn't find an exact estimate of the total number of people likely infected but probably it was pretty high. Wait a second at this. Is the one recovered. Memory I have from the time that we talked about Dan game. Florida Benjamin Rush is one of the founding father. Yeah Ah so glad souci one. Bit of Trivia Trivia at the blind pig Mhm Benjamin Rush Rush Snail founding fathers. Gosh moving on anyway. So this. The epidemic in Philadelphia from Benjamin Russia's description was pretty likely donkey. Okay Egypt Tipton. Java may have been chicken Guna. There's been a lot of recent debate over whether these early descriptions are actually chicken Guna virus as opposed to donkey virus but in any case case it seems that Philadelphia was pretty likely and that's the earliest more like convince most convincing instance there there are descriptions of donkey like disease and a Chinese encyclopedia dating back to the year. Nine nine two. whoa yeah and in this encyclopedia? This disease is referred to as water poison and was known to be associated with flying insects that kind of water so -squitoes in the symptoms of this disease. Sound a lot like Danke. You've got the fever rash. I pain bleeding sometimes. High mortality and this also lends further support to do the hypothesis that the virus originated in Asia But anyway the virus was circulating throughout like much of the world during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with an estimated eight pandemics each lasting three to seven years while seventeen seventy nine to nineteen in sixteen. Wow Yeah with the disease that is as old and in particularly as wide ranging as Dan Ghei it makes sense sense it would accumulate a few names over its lifetime. I love the name Yes. I hope that there's another one that you remember because I did a little more digging. Okay Okay so the word Dong I seems to pop up in Spain around eighteen o one and researchers think that the most likely origin of that was actually from the Sahili name for for the disease. Key Dinka PEPO. Meeting a disease characterized by sudden cramp like seizure caused by an evil spirit at sounds familiar. Okay yeah so it was called Dingo Donga from the early nineteenth century on but it had a lot of other names we already heard water poison Pretty heard breakbone fever break riccarton fever. Oh yeah you ever that one I do that all the all. The women that Benjamin rush treated were crying. They were crying women. Yeah Ben and was like well these poor ladies and their heartbreak. No Sh one of one of the supposed patients who have like you should call it braveheart fever because I'm just broken hearted gracious scar. Latina Rheumatic polka fever. Ephemeral fever and are the most baffling one at the time. Dandy Fever Dandy fever. Yes you remember this. We were like what the heck is a dandy and I I was thinking of that character in American horror story. That's who I think of. I still haven't seen that so no well everyone else. You know the circus season then. It's the guy who is a really horrible person. But he's like a dandy. I think he's a dandy. Tell me what's a dandy. Okay so I did a little sleuthing which basically basically means that. I went to wikipedia article for Dandy which is pretty lengthy. Actually cool all right. So according to wikipedia quote Dandy historically is a man who places particular importance on physical appearance refined language and leisurely hobbies pursued. With the appearance of nonchalance. It's in a cult of self like Yankee doodle Dandy Yankee doodle Dandy added feather picket. He puts a feather in his cap because he's concerned about his appearance. He called it macaroni. He he wanted to stand out exactly. Yeah Yeah Okay. So that's a dandy. That's Dandy I'd still don't understand me in terms of Dandy fever. It doesn't make any sense. It's any hypotheses. Send them our way. Yep Okay so that stink at and also hopefully a little bit more about out Dandy Fever. Yeah than we still not. An answer still unanswered okay. So anyway the Disease Dung was known by at least the late seventeen hundreds but it would take a bit before some of its biological characteristics were discovered so once scientists may the link between mosquitoes and yellow fever which is in the late eighteen hundreds. They kind I got the feeling that donkey was also transmitted by mosquitoes and that took a little bit longer to show but they did show it. Let's have these infected mosquitoes bite bite. Humans human volunteers quote unquote. And then right after that researchers discovered that donkey was caused by filter bowl transmissible agent which back then Dan before microscopy microbiology advanced was pretty much going. It was a virus. The viruses would isolated until nineteen nineteen forty-three. This was during a right after the Nagasaki Dangi epidemic of nineteen forty two which had over twenty three thousand reported cases. Wow and so at this time. Researchers isolated some serum from someone who was infected and then they injected it in to the brains of suckling mice. Nice Oh and it gave them Dangi. Okay Weird but the important thing about this was that this isolation of this virus allowed allowed researchers to also look at the different strains in which strains causing outbreaks So that was pretty important so speaking of strains up up to this point this history is mostly about the history of dengue viruses but not specifically Denki hemorrhagic fever right. And that's because that's really its own part of the story so so let's go to the nineteen forties for that so I've talked before many times every episode probably about how important war there is in terms of disease transmission don gay and Dengue Hemorrhagic. Fever are no exceptions to that during World War Two especially in the Pacific and Asian theaters ters of war. There was massive destruction of like everything. The landscape both natural and urban was just destroyed aid and so in urban areas in particular the infrastructure for water supplies or draining and plumbing essentially collapsed and people had to store water in large containers. There's a lot of water. Pools would form rather than drain your speedo populations grew enormously and they found plenty of hosts as people. We're also on the move. Both during and following the war with a huge influx into urban centers and the urban centers couldn't keep up with the growth both in terms of infrastructure. And so you just have like all all of a sudden these mosquitoes are like while we have plenty of hosts theory to be able to do our thing and collapsing infrastructure with plenty of places for water to collect and exactly YEP. It's sort of like a perfect storm of yes bad things happening so the other thing it is that during the nineteen forties during the war. And after you have masses moving of people not just like from the rural centers to urban centers you who have like movement across the entire world. What this turned into was no longer a one strain one city situation Suddenly there were two or three or four dengue virus strains mixing in the same location and that as we know is how you get dengue hemorrhagic fever. Of course this has been described before but it was really sporadic. Okay and like the exception. But in the in the years after World War Two two there were epidemics of dengue hemorrhagic fever of a very large scales and since then they have pretty much only. Correct me if I'm wrong. But only increased in frequency and and geographic spread size many cases. Yeah Yeah so we see the first epidemics of dengue hemorrhagic. Fever in Southeast Asia in the nineteen fifties and sixties starting starting in one thousand. Nine hundred three in Manila in the Philippines and then these epidemics up first words sporadic every few years but then they grew in size as trade and urbanization populations increased epidemic of dengue hemorrhagic. Fever in the Americas lagged. A bit behind these epidemics in Southeast Asia popping only in the late nineteen seventies early nineteen eighties and this delay was possibly due to simple geography but also probably had something something to do with the widespread mosquito eradication campaigns throughout the Americas in the twentieth century. I WanNa talk a little bit about these campaigns because I think they're important not only in understanding the current landscape of mosquito borne disease risk across the Americas. But also it's a really good example of why it's so important to work interdisciplinarity and how quickly things can be undone. Oh Yeah Yeah. The anti-mosquito campaigns in the Americas were initially spurred on by a desire to get rid of pest. Mosquitoes like it was. It was before the the true extent of the disease causing capabilities that the mosquitoes were known. And so mostly it was just like these are annoying. These are horrible annoying. And till until you've read some of these quotes like I can't really blame them like it. Sounds Madness okay let me. Here's one this is an English settler. Okay they said the noise they make in. Flying cannot be conceived by persons who have only heard nats in England. That's one and a Catholic priest said the greatest torment in comparison with which all the rest would be but sport is the mosquitoes the cruel persecution of the mosquitoes. The plague of Egypt. I was no more cruel. Little insect has caused more swearing since the French have been in Mississippi than had previously taken place in all the world so we're swearing in Mississippi than in all strange sentence. That is a really weird attendance but it does seem that mosquitoes were like unheard of. Were annoying super annoying. Yeah and they did drive people out of towns they slowed tourism and they reduce property values and so people particularly landowners wanted something to be done even though it started out as this like. Let's get rid of nuisance mosquitoes angle. It soon took on public health. You know motivations as well once the links between yellow fever and mosquitoes Dan game. Mosquitoes and Malaria Clarion mosquitoes. Wants those were all uncovered right and also once the in the in the yellow fever episode. We talked about the elimination of mosquitoes and reduction in in yellow fever in the predominantly White Panama Canal Zone. Exactly so that kind of was like oh it can be done so maybe we should try it and it started started in New Jersey of all places New Jersey New Jersey. They were one of the most vocal about mosquito problem. And so that's where this began. Basically the first strategy of this campaign was to essentially use oil as they did in Panama to dump it in mosquito breeding grounds like standing water water and then this side and whatever but it's really bad for the environment dump oil in so bunch of fish died. Ride a bunch of other animals. Use any aquatic animals. Plants also died. Did the in. Castor oil kidding throwback two weeks ago and also only a subset of mosquitoes were affected by the oil and so they were like we need another solution. Yeah the fishermen women were like this. Can't we don't have standing for this. Yeah so they were like let's drain these marshes and swamps and wetlands great great Plame mm-hmm guys rate plan. And they were like well no matter that there are hundreds of thousands of acres of this. Let's do it anyway And they did run into some problems. One was just the sheer size of the project that they were trying to undertake one was funding. And the other was that not everyone wanted to have their land be drained so then there were laws put in place starting a New Jersey Than California followed suit saying that any standing water is a public nuisance and the person would either be fined or agree to comply to have their land drained. Mosquito engineering is what it was called called by the Nineteen Twenty S. This anti-mosquito campaigns were pretty much set up across the US. With one exception being Florida Florida's seemed to be strangely resistant. They love their mosquitoes down there. It's always mosquito Gita season as we learn as we learned when we were there but whiskey to control cost money and it wasn't exactly promising Missing results because it would be like. Oh yeah new. Jersey was doing great and then there would be heavy rains. One year all work would be undone shocking and everything else died so yeah but then some unexpected.
