Why Do Americans Celebrate the Fourth of July with Fireworks?

"Does this sound familiar at all. Without a visual clue it might be a little hard to figure out. But that's the sound of fireworks. Many of you are curious about how these celebratory explosions work. And why we use them. Historians and archaeologists think fireworks started in china. Maybe as early as twenty two hundred years ago and they've been used in europe and other parts of the world for at least eight hundred years in the united states where our show is based they've become a big tradition on the fourth of july. So hi my name is nicholas in six years old. And i live in plymouth michigan and i want to know why people do fireworks on the fourth of july. Thank you bye while nicholas. Americans have been celebrating. July fourth fireworks since seventeen. Seventy seven the first anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence. John adams was one of the people who signed that document in seventeen. Seventy six a year earlier declaring their wish for the american colonies to become independent from england. Afterwards adams wrote to his wife that he wanted that day to be celebrated with lots of parades shows bonfires bells illuminations. Adams was a well known person. In the early days of the united states he later became the first vice president and the second president so his wish would have been shared with others as well and so on the one year anniversary of the signing. The city of philadelphia had a big celebration with thirteen fireworks. One for each of the original thirteen colonies. Now john adams didn't come up with this idea entirely on his own. English royalty had been using fireworks for national celebrations since at least the thirteenth century. Which went fireworks came to europe. They were widely in use by the fifteenth century. That's about six hundred years ago. But they were hard to find in the early days of the united states so celebrations back then often included guns and cannons more than actual fireworks.

During the reign of the caliph will lead the first general. Tariq iban ziad lead moore's forces across the mediterranean and landed in gibraltar on april thirtieth in the year seven eleven. This began a seven year campaign. Where the moore's brought most of the iberian peninsula under islamic control the term moore should probably be explained as i've used it here. In several previous episodes there really are no people called. Moore's the term more was used by europeans to describe muslim inhabitants. From north africa included people of different ethnicities including berbers and arabs. The term isn't too dissimilar from the term francs which was used by muslims in the middle east to describe all europeans. The term comes from the roman province of mauritania which is where modern day morocco is located. The current country of that name is not located exactly where the ancient province of mauritania is located. The invasion began a period where muslim rulers controlled at least part of the iberian peninsula for almost eight hundred years the moore's never completely conquered the peninsula however even at its greatest extent just eight years. After the invasion there was still a part of the peninsula that remained under christian control in the far north the kingdom of asturias remained independent and it was never conquered that being said one of the reasons why they had such an easy time is because they gave very generous terms to the people who they did. Conquer one example of this is theodomir the visigoths chief of america. He agreed to terms where he could still continue to be the leader of his people and practice christianity. All they had to do was pay an annual tribute. The entire region of iberian muslim rule was known in arabic as al

How 2,000 Years Of Monetary History Led Us To Bitcoin, With Nik Bhatia

"All right nick. Welcome to the breakdown. How you doing. I'm doing great. Thank you so much for having me. This should be superfund so as we were just discussing following your writing forever. I loved seeing it. Come together in kind of the the full length form In what i wanted to do today is actually kind of go back through history. And i think what layered money does so well is it gives people the context understand this rather than kind of just being like. Here's why bitcoin is awesome. Bitcoin is amazing. Let's actually dig into the history of money that got us here. And so what. I thought would be really fun. Today is actually walk. The listeners through some of that history of money starting way back at the beginning But before that. I guess like start with defining the kind of the central term here the central concept of layered money since the name of the book. It's obviously a really important concept. What is layered money. Actually meet layered. Money is a new framework. And so what i did was i took this idea of assets and liabilities and in our monetary system the way that the way that the system works is that financial institutions have assets and liabilities. They have relationships with each other and through these relationships come. Monetary instruments and monitoring instruments. Because they are within these relationships between financial institutions there is a natural hierarchy there and so the hierarchy of monetary instruments is not something that is common commonly discussed at term. So my goal with layered money was to bring that to the forefront in instead of talking about liabilities talking about a pyramid of money in which there is a hierarchy and at top of the pyramid are certain financial instruments or commodities and certain financial institutions. Right below them using those assets as the base for a whole monetary system and so the idea for layer money actually came directly from a paper in academia called the inherent hierarchy of money by a economics. Professor merlin. And what he wrote was fat. Money is inherently hierarchy go and he provided this academic framework for this and he had a three layered system gold government currency and deposits so a three layer system and i found that paper so fascinating in. So what i did was. I actually tried to trace the roots of that paper. That paper didn't have a historical context. It was about the hierarchy of sheets in the financial system. What i did with layered money is. I tried to trace the roots of that paper and i ended up starting the story about eight hundred years ago in renaissance florence To describe how. I saw this evolution occurred so i wanna get into florence but you actually start the book even farther back. You kind of pull the earliest experiments with coinage kind of set it in historical context. So let's talk about in the sort of ad era. I guess those early experiments with money with coinage What were the important kind of steps on the journey to get to where we get in that in that kind of renaissance that early period. What were the important parts of the earliest phases that you're looking at. So the transition between gold and gold coins is what identified as the first important transition so before gold coins gold was used golden. Silver were used as mediums of exchange. But it was in the form of non standardized fars jewelry etc these days gold and silver items but not necessarily uniform in their measure in weight. So the coin. The coin did was it. Changed this idea that we can to measure or gold and silver. Every time we transacted with each other. Because now the coin that i that you recognized you have acquired that i recognize. I know how much your coin as you know how much mike ways and so we can change We can exchange a lot quicker than if we didn't have the coin so that was very important advance in that happened for the first time. Several hundred years before a renaissance florence in actually in ancient libya which is in modern day turkey so after the after we start getting gold coins then we actually see the greek in the roman empire's us coins To admit coins and to use these coins in order to expand their empires and exert their influence over their subjects and what we saw the roman empire was really example devaluation so this idea that a government can come in mint coin but then the next year put less gold. Silver in the coin and progressively keep cheapening the currency But tried to really get away with this idea that the currency that the issue this year is the same as the currency that they issued ten years ago which had twice as much silver or golden and so the manipulation of currency at through government started to happen as well Along the signed before we get into the rasul's

Winter Solstice 2020: A Very Special Day For Celebration

"Season of the year The northern hemisphere where it is the darkest day sometimes called the shortest day of the year and the southern hemisphere. It is the summer solstice. And it is the brightest day or if you'd prefer the longest day of the year simply put the winter. Solstice is when the sun is at its lowest height in the sky which makes it the darcus day of the year. You know that the winter solstice has a particular moment that it is actually the winter solstice it is december twenty first and where i am and the northeast united states. It actually occurred at five zero two a. m. this morning from microsoft news. There's this according to the farmer's almanac the word solstice stems from the latin word soul meaning son and sustain here which means to standstill from the bustle dot com website. I find that it's an extremely spiritual day full of sacred rituals in fact to some all of that extra darkness isn't a bad thing at all. I love it actually adds to the spiritual significance of the day. The winter solstice has so many spiritual meanings that make it so much more than just the shortest day of the year. And isn't that the truth. The winter solstice is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration renewal and self reflection. That is perfect for the past year that we've had in pagan times. The winter solstice was referred to as you'll and was a celebration of the goddess moon energy. It was believed that on this day the moon would give birth to the son. It symbolizes the birth of the sun. A representative of the birth of jesus. It is symbolic of the birth of the spiritual son within that. We are not separate from the creator. This is a time for quiet energy where you get the opportunity to look within yourself and focus on what you want and need. It's time to set goals and intentions for the coming year to examine and let go of our past and to make changes within ourselves. The solstice is essentially tied to a personal awakening. And did you know that. The winter solstice is also called a blue christmas or the longest night on this day. Some churches and western christian denominations hold a church service that honors people have lost loved ones and are experiencing grief whether as a lot of people doing that this year. The worship often includes opportunities for expression of grief and pain as well as an opportunity to focus on the promise of hope. And we all need that. This year there is a special interest for this day as it is also the traditional feast day for saint thomas the apostle this linkage invites making some connections between saint thomas's struggle to believe in jesus as resurrection as well as the long nights just before christmas. There are growing resources and popularity around this tradition due to their relevance for many who struggle to find joy and hope. During the festive seasons scandinavians treated the winter solstice. As a reason to celebrate the feast of you'll as noted by the farmer's almanac a yul log would be burned in recognition of the heart light and life giving properties of the returning son and to pay tribute to the scandinavian god of thor. The domestic tradition of burning a yule log is thought to derive from this ancient feast. It is an ancient rome. Festival took place and the days leading up to the winter. Solstice and observance of saturn the god of harvest and agriculture. What makes the two thousand twenty winter solstice extra special. This year is that the so called christmas star will be visible. What's that it's actually. A rare planetary in which saturn and jupiter are expected to line up and come so close to earth that they'll look like an especially bright star. Stargazers should catch the site while they can. Since this close of alignment between those two planets saturn and jupiter apparently has an occurred and nearly eight hundred years and look for the google logo and your search engine today for a short explanation. Google is using its logo monday to not only celebrate the first day of winter but as a rare celestial event the monday doodle honors the winter solstice and it also celebrates the aligning of saturn and jupiter based on their orbits from our vantage point on earth jupiter and saturn who across within point one degrees of each other a fraction of the width of the full moon. Yes it's true. I love the winter solstice. It's a great time to just hunker down and think about how twenty twenty one can be. Oh so much better.

"It is We're recording this a little bit before the time that you're hearing this but i'm very pleased to bring you a really cool interview with the ziada oscar. He's the vice president for product management of the snapdragon roadmap and application processor technologies according to his linked in page ziade. Thanks for being with us today. Thank you thank you for having me looking forward to the discussion. That's a very long title so just just reduce that down for us. What exactly do you do over at qualcomm. Sure so basically my team. We look at all the different technologies that make up the snapdragon products. And we're looking at you know different technology inflections on camera graphics and other areas and we basically bring it all together and to put the product together with the best in class experiences and then of course looking across all the different products that we do at qualcomm from a roadmap perspective much simpler than it sounds. Okay but you're busy every day because the snapdragon we said this. We talked to alex last year and it was a it was a great discussion about the snapdragon Sixty five and one thing that he said was you know it's no you can't say that qualcomm platform is just the cpu and gpu anymore. So we're gonna get into what exactly the the big announcement is First let's just call it out. It's the it's the snapdragon eight hundred eighty eight five. This is the latest and greatest. The chip that's gonna power. Probably most of the flagship phones throughout twenty twenty one We're announcing it in december right. You're this december second when you're hearing this and can you just give us the thirty second elevator pitch about snapdragon eight and what exactly is better indifferent. Last year's snapdragon eight sixty five absolutely so the snapdragon eight hundred years this bar in terms of premium tier smartphone performance and. What we do is every year all the new innovations on all technology. Vectors come into the snapdragon eight hundred tier embiid snapdragon. Eight eight eight. We actually pushed the bar further with much more experiences which significant enhanced camera capabilities and even better gaming in addition to the fact that we have five thirty capability integrated into this product We look at You know trying to create devices based on this that have new use cases coming up for consumers but example lost you'll be able to show machine translation as one example is happening on the device. This year will show a lot more demonstrations that that will really while the consumers. We believe all right. So let's start with the obvious stuff. People wanna know how much faster the eight is over the previous snapdragon. The it's sixty five. This is the first year that there's a cortex x one based core. This is the the announcement from from arm earlier in the year that they were moving to the sort of like really big core than big core and then than efficiency course walk us through exactly the makeup of the new crowd k-r-i-k-o-r and how this prime cpu got larger cash. It's got a higher clock speed over the performance scores. How does that factor into how people experience eight eighty eight on a daily basis. Absolutely so from a cpa perspective. What you're able to get through the much better. Cpu is far better browser experience a device. That is much more. Snappier in terms of responsiveness right. So many are launching a new application for example a new app. It's able to bring that up much faster where we're able to do in the past all the experiences get better in that sense With the new crowd that we have in the snapdragon eight this is the first cebu cluster where we actually have three distinct. Cpi cheese inder. We as you pointed out. We have the latest accord from arm. The gortex x one One of those course. And then we have three of the gortex eight seventy eights at which are the you can think of. It has performance scores the prime core which the cortex one three performance scores and four Efficiency goals which is which are the cortex a fifty five and they all come together. We basically work on wrapping around with our architecture of our power Goodness there to be able to get the best performance per unit power. The unique thing about the way. Snapdragon implements these. Cpa uses that we are able to the cpu's sixteen bidders of time And not have to throttled so we put a lot of technology in there to be able to get usable performance out of

It has seven glaciers, three small glaciers on the southern flank for the larger ones are located on the north and east flanks for those who live next to the volcano, especially on the north side in the Lake Shasta area remnant from the last eruption are easily visible, ranging from lava tubes amounts left by cry, pyroclastic flows Labra Shasta is an incredible site and occupies the lands of four native American tribes. The earliest myth was that the great spirit Scowl came down from the heavens and fought with the spirit of mountain. Ussamma known today as Crater Lake. Indeed this is how the ancient. Ancient people of the area explained volcanic activity for years. It was believed that Shasta contain sacred healing waters during the eighteen eighties, teenage psychic rhetoric Spencer Oliver who lived in the nearby town of White. Rica wrote a book a dweller on two planets. It was published by his mother in nineteen five six years after his death. It was among the pages of that book. That young Oliver, mentioned the many tunnels and chambers in and Beneath Shasta some will tell you that the publication of dweller onto planets was went. Myth turned to mystery for Mount, Shasta, remember now that myth is a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people or explaining some natural, a social phenomenon, typically involving supernatural. Supernatural beings or events and mystery is something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain tunnels and chambers below Shasta is certainly hard to explain it and qualify as a mystery but Oliver, and perhaps hundreds of other authors claim that these chambers are occupied by the survivors of Atlantis still others describe Americans remnants of a lost civilization as the occupants who occasionally wander into the town of Shasta city to trade gold for supplies.

Are There Zombie Viruses Like The 1918 Flu Thawing In The Permafrost?

"Now we take you to the top of the world to the Northern Coast of Alaska where a cliff is crumbling and exposing ancient hunting site. There's another head back there. GonNa head right here head right their main body right here. Across the Arctic these prehistoric settlements are being unearthed. And the reason why is climate change as NPR's Mike Lean do cliff reports? Scientists are worried about something that could be lurking inside. These settlements Zombie pathogens up on top of an ocean. Bluff team of archaeologists is trying to pull off an emergency excavation. Here we have ribs and vertebrae other long bones. That's Dominique Tulu. Student helping to dig out hunting cabin. He's found a stash of animal bones at the other end of the house. Glenis on shows me where someone was storing fresh. Kills so this. Is this skin right here? At my feet are mummified seal. These seals are incredibly well preserved. You can see their skin their whiskers and this odsal paw. Oh Paul everywhere they dig. There's another surprise owing us. This is ridiculous. That's an Jensen the archaeologist leading the team they're out of coastal site near Ukiah that the town wants known as Barrow. They're rushing to save a piece of history before it falls into the ocean the cliff where the cabin is buried is going breaking apart because of climate change bird bird after bird after bird stack up in their skin. There there is the whole boy. Things are getting super stinky. The birds are thawing in rotting. That's right when students hands covered in black king bird flesh. Oh yeah hands. Oh my gosh. Oh now Johnson starts worrying about something. We can't see even flu virus. Oh norovirus yes. The team realizes there could be bird-flu hidden in these carcasses. You he all across the. Arctic climate change is causing the ground to warm soften like butter and there are a lot of things buried this ground. Not just animals but also their diseases tinkering take a rank colleen. You're GONNA drive yourself seriously. You need a break cooling. The major as a student she puts on gloves. Yeah you should probably do that hand. Because I mean a lot. Dunkin you at this point. In the excavation something even crappier happens. A human molar appears really human tooth. Now the site rat isn't a burial ground. There shouldn't be bodies right here but the two does make them pause because it reminds them that there aren't just animal diseases buried in the Arctic but also possibly human diseases. There are tens of thousands of bodies hidden in the Arctic permafrost. Jensen knows this better than anyone. I've gone a lot of burials. Yeah I've probably Doug as many variables was anybody. Some of the people buried up here. They died of smallpox others from the nineteen eighteen flu. Have you ever seen human remains like as well preserved as this seal? Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah well the little the little frozen girl from rookie. Avic ARE NYACK. Yes she was. She was actually much better preserved than the seal. The little girl was just six years old. She was carefully wrapped in duct skin. Parka WITH A FUR-TRIMMED. She had this little sled with her. She died about eight hundred years ago. Water in around her burial I think and she was socialist. Basically encased in ice. We're able to take her out in a block of ice. Her body was so well preserved that Jensen shipped her to anchorage so doctors could do a full autopsy. One of those doctors was Michael's Zimmerman a paleobiologist at the University of Pennsylvania. I've done the number studies on frozen bodies in Alaska and when you open them up the organs role there and they're easily identified. It's not at all like Egyptian mummies where everything is shrunken and dried up. So it's easy to see what a person died up for the little frozen girl. It was starvation. But Zimmerman has seen infections embodies excavated from permafrost in one case a mummy from the Aleutian Islands. Looked like it had died of pneumonia and when he looked for the bacteria inside the body there they were frozen in time. We can see them microscopically in the in the lungs. There's this fear out there that once human bodies are exposed by melting permafrost. The pathogens in them could come back to life like Zombie pathogens. It's not unheard of anthrax. Can do it. It happened just a few years ago. In Russia a massive reindeer burial ground thought in the anthrax that killed. The reindeer woke up and started an outbreak. Were these new moon. You bacteria still alive. Zimmerman tested it. He took a smidge tissue from the lungs warmed it up fed it and tried to revive it. Nothing grew not one single cell though. I was happy because I didn't have to worry about catching anything. Zimmerman says he wasn't surprised. Bacteria were dead. Anthrax is a special case. In general bacteria that make people can't survive deep-freeze we're dealing with the organisms. That are hundreds of years old at least of the stuff. I work out of their frozen for hundreds of years and I really don't think they're ready to come back to life. I asked him if the same is true for viruses. I think it's extremely unlikely we've never been able to Culture any living organisms out of these bodies in nineteen fifty one a pathologist from San Francisco. Johan Halton decided to test this out. He went up to a tiny town near nome Alaska in dug up the bodies of five people who had died of the nineteen eighteen flu a virus that killed at least fifty million people Holton told. Npr Two thousand four that he cut out tiny pieces of the people's lungs and try to grow the virus in the lab. I hope that I would be able to isolate living virus. And they couldn't they ours is dead. And in retrospect of course maybe that was a good thing a good thing. But here's the crazy part. Holton tried to capture the virus twice. He went back to Alaska when he was seventy two. In Russian. Scientists like Holton have intentionally tried to revive smallpox from bodies in their permafrost. They recovered pieces of the virus but couldn't get that to grow either so maybe when it comes to Zombie Diseases. It's not melting permafrost. Me Need to worry about but what scientists are doing in the lab mike do cluff NPR news.

Notre Dame Fire; Pilgrim Trails

"Let's start today's show remembering the impact of the fire. That damaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris one year ago with thirteen million visitors a year. The medieval masterpiece had attracting more visitors than Saint Peter's Basilica Elaine Sciolino correspondent in Paris since two thousand and two and she describes how the river that surrounds Notre Dom came to the rescue in her book. The Sam the river that made Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Where were you and I know how much you love Paris? What was it like when you heard about the fire at the Notre Dame on April fifteen twenty nineteen? I live in Paris Rick and I happened to have been in New York at the time and I was in an office building and suddenly looked at a TV screen and there was CNN with the Notre. Dom Inflames I mean my city by cathedral and I was so my first questions were did anyone die and was it terrorism and once it was just established that it was a terrible accident and no one died. I was relieved because I was confident. Even at that very moment that it would be rebuilt. Maybe different but it would survive. It had to yeah now you were probably celebrating the fact that you've got this wonderful book. The send the river that made Paris just coming out in actuality in a Lotta ways. It was the send that enabled the firefighters to save the Cathedral. Well I got a phone call from my husband who was watching all of this on French TV in Paris and he said Lane. You're not gonNA believe this but I'm watching television and there is a boat that seems to be pumping water up to the firefighters on the land into the Cathedral. And I knew at that moment I had to write another chapter about the Senate and its role in helping to put out the fire at Notre Dumb. Thank God they had access to all that water when you think of the structure of a Gothic Cathedral. A lot of people don't realize it but there's huge oak beams there's a whole structure between the ceiling and the roof and it's the network of Oak Beams. The roof would be a lead covered roof. Eight hundred years old. I've seen in museums gargoyles with molten lead spewing out their mouth you know cooling and freezing their when you've had a fire like this. I mean it's just a nightmare when I've got the cathedral bursts into flames. I agree one hundred percent with you. It was an absolute nightmare and it affected people in very strange ways being people who had no real religious connection with Notre Dom we're weeping in the streets and people around the world were mourning the fact that this edifice that too many represents the heart and soul of Paris was on the verge of destruction. No I understand that the nineteenth century spire which in your chapter you you say has five hundred tons of Oak. Two hundred and fifty tons of lead fell three hundred feet crashing to the ground. It's amazing that the entire church didn't collapse A lot of people don't realize that stone gets compromised in heat and giant stone. Buildings can fall down because of a fire with the firefighters who belonged to the French military. They're not part of the city of Paris Force went into action as if it was a military operation and the commander of the firefighters sent some of his team into the burning north tower risking their lives to try to cool down that tower. Which we still don't know one year later. Is it completely intact or does it need to be supported in some way? Now that must have been quite a dramatic decision because you can stand back and make sure nobody is endangers way and then the tower would have collapsed or you can send your firefighters in risking a situation like on nine eleven when the trade towers collapsed and all the firefighters inside would perish again. Thank goodness five. Hundred firefighters participated. They took the bold move they rushed in. They called the church and they say the north tower will general galet. Who is the commander of the firefighters spent time in Afghanistan and he had studied also the nine eleven tragedy in the United States? But he had to go to the president of France to get permission to send his firefighters in. Anybody told the president is if we don't do this. We're half an hour away from Notre Dom collapsing. That is amazing. You know we can more in the church. We can love the church but as hard get into the heart in the mind of Parisians. What does it mean to Paris? I mean it just seems like of course. You've got the zero point in front right. Everything is majored in France from the Notre Dame. Its place where they're kings have been coronated through the centuries in so many ways it's the cultural heart of the city even back before the advent of Christianity there was a temple. Can You Peter Right there? Can you talk a little bit about the Notre Dame as that heart and soul of the Great City of Paris? Notre Dame is on the field unless he tae which was where Paris was created. It's the very origin of Paris. Need sits there as not only a beautiful historical monument to museum but it sits there as the absolute essence of Paris So for French Catholics. It's a place of worship but for the rest of the French nation. It's really the origin of their capital city.

oil came to Hong Kong I had a flat tax rate of fifty percent it was a phenomenal place to live I still have friends that are there the travel there and I will tell you it's nothing like it used to be the Chinese have a very heavy from the mainland and in my opinion they're going to ruin the quality well the swarms of protesters would seem to be growing by the month if we're to go through what Gordon told us and they'll the elections of a couple weeks ago while they weren't that impactful they were a shot over the bow to the Chinese government that the people are willing to stand up and in some cases even die because there were a couple people have been killed in the protests now hi Rick have you been back since I know you said you left there about thirty years ago yeah I actually traveled through Hong Kong quite a bit I did some work in mainland China prior to the Olympics for airport concern I've been in and out of the new airport not used on Kong is the gateway to Singapore Indonesia and a few other Asian countries it is significantly different there's a lot more Chinese control then I had seen when I lived there well what do you mean when you say Chinese control what does that mean in terms of how you experience what the rules were far more restrictive about where you can go there were far more cameras traffic cameras are a lot of the prices have changed significantly the world why less foreign owned businesses and once I Central District the banks had grown up all Kong and Shanghai bank I believe it looked to me like it would have been taken over by the Chinese government it was it was a hot bed of capitalism you know anytime eighty two eighty three and prior to that you could get any saying there was no homeless it was just a phenomenal place to be during that time frame not like it is now it's interesting in the first person I've talked to who live there I know several people have traveled there for work and I recall a sixty minutes profile piece showing why Hong Kong had exploded in terms of capitalism and it had to do with the ease of opening and operating a business and the sixty minutes piece that I watch showed a reporter going to Hong Kong and opening up a small store and then contracting that with going to New York City and trying to do the same thing in Hong Kong he was able to open the store I think in less than two days and in New York City it was two months and he still had not been able to get enough permits or Greece enough wheels to get things moving in his direction was said your experience as well yeah I actually had to go through the process to get a Hong Kong ID card so that I could live there are more than ninety days I was working for an American company out of California that had sold equipment to the oil will come Jockey Club so I worked in Happy Valley in new territories it was fairly inexpensive to drive around a little you know fuel wasn't even now over priced the police all war two different types of bats is the one that spoke English in the ones that did not so when you post a police officer for help and they're very very friendly and helpful back then you can actually tell by the color of their badge whether or not they would understand English god I wish we would have that here well down yeah you need to speak in number languages to get around in the country to do simple things English has almost become the second language I'm the one thing I will mention US about businesses Hong Kong was won by capitalists even the bridge the British stayed out of the bureaucracy to do business because of the amount of foreign currency that came through in the banking industry it also had a flat tax I filed a tax return literally on a postcard it was fifteen percent back down but but then again it was not being run by east coast liberal mayors and city council turn New York into what does that I grew up in New York upstate New York you can almost write a book about it a similar to weekend at Bernie's you know it's pretty pathetic up there now for doing business and are trying to make money without getting taxed to death yeah the New York upstate New York used to be the read this part of the state and there are been significant inroads made by the the communists and the left this in New York state or taken over pockets of what once was Republican territory without question let's said can I you shift gears to Virginia Rick what the heck is happening in Virginia and are you guys going to be able to turn it around I think Virginia is lost frankly it's going to be a tax and spend state much like Maryland turned into certainly like New York and California the recent election where the the state legislator slipped to be democratically controlled I have a lot of friends myself included that are have examined other states to move to I'm actually considering South Dakota although it's a little bit chilly it's no state income tax no vehicle emission business life uses it the like the wild west out there compared to this place wow well I'm reading from a lot of my second amendment friends because I'm a big second amendment and first amendment guy that there are several counties now in Virginia that are considering themselves sanctuary counties when it comes to the second amendment and I wonder how that's gonna sit with this solidly blue legislature if the share of say you can write all the laws you want about guns when I can and for some well I I think what you're going to find happen very similar to Colorado where the liberals took over the big cities and the counties that actually lived out in the in the farm country and actually had jobs in small business they revolted in Colorado I think he stumbled here I'm not sure how heavy handed the knuckle head governor we put in in Virginia not me I didn't vote for him and the Attorney General and the lieutenant governor I mean it's it's like the island of misfit toys down there in Richmond it's a shame so many great people I know in Virginia and and they they just signed on for this they got pushed through on this I I hope you can last and if you go to South Dakota well just dress warmly Recca appreciate you being there today thank you Sir have a great rest your day no I got another call coming in I think we can grab this one I think I've got time J. W. calling from New York J. W. welcome to Morris financial hello Sir what are you listening to the conversation about call call I'm a little concerned that we we forget a couple clicks Asian securely have a whole wall raids we claims as to copy this lady are patient and generally feel like a white things out the other big point that that we need to recognize is that a million protesters may be it may of protesters but if all they have rocks and bottles they don't fare well against thanks in our troops so to a point but the eat Chinese may be willing to put up with the protests to appoint but it's the only thing is really going to slay them in my view is going to be world opinion I don't like him in simple typical communist slash and they have a problem going again and using water resources necessary to put down what they perceive as a rebellion very good point one of the key things here J. W. and you're right on the the way the Chinese communists think they'll think in terms of not eight years but eight hundred years and they're willing to wait out anybody on any topic is they've shown us with trade however as we've seen the Chinese economy is cratering right now at least two of the Chinese main banks are supposedly not strong enough to withstand the stress test the basic stress tests that we ask our banks so we were waiting to see on that the other thing that I I believe this is happening now people are starting to realize just how nefarious the Chinese social credit score system is in China everything you do is monitor as our previous caller said there are there are cameras everywhere and there are cameras that work with facial recognition that to create a file on you based on how well you behave in public and everything else about you so if you are seen smoking on a train platform you get let's call the demerit if you're seen being allowed on the train you get a demerit and all if you're late with your payments if you don't show up for work properly all of these things work against you in what they call the social credit score China has created the model for government control of people using a social credit scored the similar to what we had call our credit score but in the social credit score if you're deemed to be not a or right behaving individual they will not allow you to travel on the fast trains they will not allow you to travel on trains or planes at all you'll have to take a bus everywhere you'll be told where and when you can go to work or where and when you can go to vacation and it's all coming through China's internet products which is why many people are telling us be careful this company while way wow way has products all over this country and if any municipality bought while way products generally they should be concerned because there is a back door through the internet back to China where they can take all the information they want they're doing it on their own people what makes you think they won't do it on us where three hundred million people there one billion four hundred million people we're just like adding an extra couple of counties that's all that that's all about given I am John the China story is one that's ever unfolding and it should trouble everybody because China is a big player in the global economy although I think down trumps working I'm pretty hard I'm gonna step away when I get back we'll.

Hey Frank hi I just like to. I would like to tell you that my my take on this is that I don't have a real problem with the with the windmills I have a problem with the with the light pollution. I feel that that nothing is being done to address that through either radio frequency or radar that could turn them on and off in in the event of anything that are in the area one one one one line are you specifically referring to the that the flashing red light there on all the windmill that take away our beautiful evening to starlit sky I got you. nothing has been done to talk about how can we take in may you know keep the safety aspect of it but not take away the beautiful environment that we've we've had made you know our mother nature we don't get to see that beautiful sky anymore in the endless water going across like that color you know I should probably know this but I I don't know the reason that that we've got red lights on windmills unless it's to try to distract the birds and you know send them away I can't believe it's for airplanes. well I think it's for it you know there's no there there are low flying playing private plane and so on and I think that is the revenue of of of those lights like if they they are they are incredibly discussing when you go out one just sit there and look at a star studded night in where can you go on our state almost any more and the the thing anymore get out it's really a shame all that I again I have I I I like the idea of alternate energy I don't have a problem but but they should look at other aspects of what the how to gain. well the you're paying for itself if you're good with that okay they're going to keep pushing because they're getting my overnight subsidies for it and you know it's it's making the utilities a bunch of money. I under I understand I'm not trying to look and if I'm one of the you tell these I'm doing the same thing okay so I'm not trying to criticize the port we all do the same thing but you know all the facts are facts so. now we have we just we don't want we don't want to lose the beauty of eleven one most beautiful states in the whole country absolutely and up with all our beautiful water in open lands and everything and now you can hardly go anywhere what without having that that skyline. taken away from us yeah and then on the rare occasions in Northern Lights around you really have got the distraction so Doug appreciate the call thanks so much let's go to Clarkston very quickly George around the Frank back when shell. hi Frank how everything everything's wonderful Sir yeah if you were talking about before about climate changes no there's not conclusive proof about the theory right. yeah I I agree I agree with you it's not conclusive but the one the carbon emissions Grohl like over the last four hundred thousand years it I mean it it's been growing yeah I'm in Anniston growing a lot faster over the past two centuries because of human activities well hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on just a second number one humans do not put that much carbon in the atmosphere will are you are responsible for about fifteen percent of it by the experts own estimations most of it comes from from decaying woodlands and in plant life because that's where most of the CO two comes from that's number one number two number two the the U. N.'s own report the I. P. C. C.'s own report on this pointed out several years ago that carbon increases. follow temperature rise not the other way around and they follow it by are you ready for this. about eight but eight hundred years it takes a hundred years to catch up. yeah okay but I I I agree with you that it's not conclusive but the the emissions also include things like aldehyde with the missions of burning fuels and that can't be good I mean they don't want this stuff to grow because.

"Nine five seven a lot of people getting into this discussion about the governor's decision to ban. vaping. of flavored products by everyone not just children but adults too because of a health emergency here in Michigan declared by the health director soul will we'll see where that leads and how far it lead to one other. what other topics will come under that heading at some point some of our listeners of already brought them up including represented about manta causes what about abortion isn't that you know a killer as well. and in that kills more people than vaping ever did so why why are we not declaring that a health emergency for instance that's just one also a last night in case you missed it the and and this is another issue a climate change what if the governors minions in her administration declared that. our use of any fossil fuels is killing the planet like you know Bernie Sanders said last night and we got a lever here's your pictures. yeah okay go change the weather very go change the climate of the world tell me how you going to do that we just got done she'll kill will do it really and what about that U. N. report that said CO two increases follow temperature increases by eight hundred years. yeah twenty two bird do some reading. at any rate. make Mr flux capacitor Joe Biden you felt badly for him he he suffered a apparently a broken blood vessel is left on it during the discussion last night and it did it did not look real good and it'll leave people are questioning a his health once again but will we'll hear more about that is apparently okay but he had blood feel into his left eye during that climate change debater climatology hall last night on CNN all right let's get back to the phones at eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven and we'll go to Newport and Tim you're up here on the front back much of the morning. morning Frank thanks for taking my call pleasure Sir. they wanted to say that the wrong with with respect to governor what we're is a ninety day ban I think it's a great idea but why stop at just bringing of flavored vaping products I think got crime is a public health emergency so white why can't we go right to the top and you're put a ninety day ban on crime itself well then. because you you have laws that that the government different crime so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt on that but think about this one what we heard about in the city of Detroit lately were recently this nine year old girl was mauled by three pit bulls we keep hearing there's a problem in Detroit with wild dogs so what's next do we do we have a an administration that suddenly comes up with an idea that this is a health hazard dogs are a health hazard hazard in Detroit and they have to be outlawed and we we bad the ownership of of canines in the city of Detroit because of that problem of the deaths in the other attacks yeah and just ask if you can you can take this to an extreme and that's why I mentioned earlier that the key issue here as is I considered it and as I thought about it and I'm not it one way or the other of vaping yeah I've tried it once and I didn't like it so that was it buddy of mine baked all the time to get off cigarettes and I said let me taste that Bobby and so he it we're playing golf together and so I took one puff of it measured. you can have this I don't want I'll stay with my cigars so they right. but the bottom line is you know what it what about all the other issues that that are real major concern to me you're talking about wild dogs in the streets and they they don't even have an animal control chief anymore right now in the city of Detroit is understand so why are we not a true attacking that. what what if I can say something else one on one I think now if people are getting off on. cigarettes switching debating which shouldn't the real public health emergency be reconciled so why isn't. banning cigarettes a public health emergency there you go the same thing especially when you you consider the the health impacts of of cigarette smoking that have been proven over the long term that's a great point it but again what you're saying is that if. well what I'm saying is if you allow that to happen if you allow this one thing that happened that the health department could say this is a merchants yeah health emergency and there's really no great evidence of a health emergency involving our children which I have not seen evidence of have you have you been convinced river health emergency over vaping. now yeah I forgot my control bar government already exactly right exactly right it's all every person what to do to do it yeah and and then do you notice it was applauded by our Attorney General Dennis no surprise there Hey Tim right yeah thank you for the call appreciate it eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven that's our number will get more of your calls and don't forget we got that give away the ticket giveaway to coming up this morning ten thirty six will tell you how to win tickets to the allied challenge presented by McLaren at Warwick hills golf and Country Club in grand blank September ninth through the fifteenth them though what a week it's going to be up there with kid rock playing golf with Jack Nicklaus. celebrity shootout get durch Bentley playing and it's going to be great and tell me I got to take a break I'm too much fun I was seeing some durch Bentley and think about our broadcast next Thursday from the the Country Club war we kills the for the program in which I will be playing incidently but twelve thirty after the show got to take this break though before the shop Mike. start.

That's adhere to that tradition over the last eight eight hundred years but the underground stream one of the most immediate obvious things about it is that the information it provides its students is very accurate and it works immediately these none of this it came take lauch times to achieve <hes> results of any significant khan and the underground strain results are achieved very quickly and very obviously and you realize is that you're involved in a system that is squeaky clean and very tight as far as being effective and the other side of the underground stream trained as that that is the place where the secrets to wasted esoteric spiritual self development <hes> kit will preserved and passed on that in the past we we see glimpses in the writings of magicians woah out chemists that these people were involved in some kind of internal work that was <hes> focused on spiritual self development and we know that those guys were pie alternate secret underground stream and none of them if us by all published publicly about econo- detail it'll except small handset allow people to recognize that they were involved in some zometa deeper level of internal alchemy is that i think in one place you call this the unbroken line of teaching which stems back to antiquity that sentence i i think that's what you mean with underground stream right the concept.

almost entirely convicted is from people who never wanted to leave the European Union and you must bear in mind that this is the greatest period of anger fourth of more of conflicted angah but because of the surface what have we will have left then this is the last time that they have available to transport the seventeen point sepi fixated to the leak assessment of of your call the system that we have Senate Hammond foreman shown to the exchequer never wanted to leave and went to the but none the less look at the soles of things he's saying constitutional outreach profoundly undemocratic Dominic grieve deeply questionable frankly a great just Michael Heseltine confusion right right the speaker of the house to come about I could go okay let's deal with not Haseltine and the speaker because what they have to say is of course interesting low Haseltine as M. deputy prime minister but was party to a nineteen days suspension of parliament approx the nineteen ninety seven general election say it wasn't because she's not rage than it is now I think that's convicted anger Mister speaker interesting because the speaker by convention and long standing tradition has new tongue with which to speak all eyes with which to see other than as directed by the house what he said yesterday was not directed by the house and therefore must be said in a personal capacity notice Mister speaker was it I was going to use the word illegal not the appropriate word but the food was it improper it was the most constitutionally improper thing that happened yesterday it was the most constitutionally improper thing that happened yesterday come on come on that's what they had to say to John Burgau he is a blowhard and I know you don't follow British politics Chuck and I were talking about this earlier Chuck Todd and I could spend all day on this and I am this audience is better equipped this audience is smart this audiences generous thank you again for helping out food for the poor the banners at the top of the hill at dot com this audience cares about this world and and it knows the most important conflict in the world or competition between the US and the PRC the most dangerous flashpoint in the world is along the border of Israel Lebanon and Syria because of Iran that's dangerous we're on the brink of war and the most interesting story is what's going on in the United Kingdom this democracy dates to twelve fifteen the magna Charta an over eight hundred years plus a bedroom for years it is involved to the most robust parliamentary democracy in the world we are it's child in the United States but for the parliament we were not exist they were indifferent toward demands we need not have left in seventeen seventy six but that they would not allow its representation and now they're facing their own seventeen seventy six and Boris Johnson is there George Washington like figure I know email over at media matters is going to go to start that meeting that he is trying to usher in a new age a new age in Great Britain one free of the European union's dad the hand of regulation not the invisible hand but the dead hand and I am hoping hoping hoping hoping that he succeeds it is so vital that Boris Johnson succeed because those who oppose him are opposed to parliamentary democracy they're opposed to the vote of the British people which voted for brexit three years ago they've been waiting and Boris Johnson is the Financial Times says is doing whatever he has to do to bring brags about and he will even a point as many peers as the needs to be appointed yet that that is something that we haven't seen since the eighteen hundreds when they had the pack by house of lords in order to get something done they will be filibustering this week they're so they're gonna return on separate September the second and they will be dismissed on September the night they will rise as they say in Great Britain and when they arise so poof go the hopes of stopping Bridget and then the European well actually negotiate in good faith Germany and France cannot afford a heart breaks it but it is taken someone with resolve to someone who is unlike Theresa may someone who is willing to go to the brink to get the deal done and that's what Boris Johnson is doing it's Alistair said in the telegraph this morning and I have tweeted it out if you're following me at you kill it you can in fact go and and read that column which I tweeted out he has laid it all out that there is nothing off limits to the prime minister the prime minister is ready to go he is ready to absolutely deliver brexit and he is going to use every tool in the toolbox I expect filibusters this week and I think John Burke blowhard broke out to be out there trying to do everything it can to stop the the inevitability of the European Union is set a hard deadline of October thirty one and the British parliament wants to bag the E. U. to let us stay longer get trapped deeper and more Johnson's come in like a gale force wind yeah I don't use a Dorian analogy because Dorian could be deadly if people are not listening to Rhonda Sanders please do listen understand that if you've got the listener understand because you've got to go and get this done but if you if you were to use the analogy a gale force wind is headed towards the parliament and what is Boris Johnson trying to achieve according the Financial Times the queen is approved the prime minister's request to suspend or prorogued parliament for more than a month that means they will come back on Tuesday and then they will be done as soon as they come back they will be done though they are going to be up and down and they haven't got a chance to have a vote of no confidence in the course of that period of time so he's pushing them back until late October the official reason is that Mister Johnson wants to have a bold ambitious good job legislation in the queen's speech he cannot do that unless the current parliamentary session ends to prorogation and a new one begins that is traditional by the way he argues that the queen's speech is well overdue and there's a lot of truth to that the last one was in twenty seventeen after Theresa may's bungled general election making the current parliamentary session at three intern forty days the longest in almost four hundred years the obvious underlying reason for Mister Johnson's move is also using the queen's speech to close down parliament for longer than usual period of time between the two sessions so far as it did it's just going to thwart all these were Mainers who don't have a stand a leg to stand on John Burke ow blowhard Birkenau is the house of Commons speaker any is called Mister Johnson move a constitutional outrage and that is simply not the case I'm joined now by the United States secretary of state Mike Pompeii Mister secretary welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt show it's great to be with you cannot be doing well I'm doing well former ambassador yeah it's a treasure Michael or enjoy merrily this morning sent along as warm hello he talked about Israel be on the cusp of war with Iran and that America's tough policy and Iranians increasing recklessness leaves them vulnerable and he said I I want to quote here the resupply of critical ammunition is going to be necessary and that Israel will need a diplomatic and legal iron dome at the security council and the international criminal court if for breaks out will Israel get that diplomatic and legal under Mister secretary we've we've been very clear about a couple things that you just referred to first with respect to the Islamic Republic of Iran we flip the week we flip the US policy there the previous administration guaranteed or on a path to nuclear weapons system allowed them to foment terror and allowed the missile system to run amok president trump is directed that we do just the opposite to deny them the resources to create rests not only for the United States and its citizens but for Israel as well and we've been successful with that and we've also been incredibly supportive each time Israel has has been forced to take actions to defend itself did not state says made very clear that the country has not only the right but the duty to protect its own people we are always supportive of their efforts to do that so with respect to insuring that Israel's treated fairly at the United Nations Israel can certainly count on the United States of America I know it's not your rig it belongs to your colleague over at the Pentagon will they get the ammunition resupply that happen when Nixon center to young couple on the comport ward you think the president would resupply the ammunition they need what what counseling conversations about the making sure that we collectively have defense systems capabilities that are appropriate for their needs I have every confidence president who who moved our embassy in who made clear Israel's right to the Golan Heights will do all that is necessary to ensure that our great partner in his role will be protected now Mr sack that you have met with president G. of China your counterpart there as well as been a frequent negotiating partner of you doctor Kissinger's book on China notes China got a four thousand year history and they often play a very long game they're the oldest civilization the world were the youngest do we have the smarts to negotiate with them or at least get to a draw in this current confrontation of course look it is the case that for a couple of decades and you this is a political this is Republican and Democrat administrations alike for a couple of the kids we allowed China to run roughshod over American interests as as did Europe allow China to run roughshod over their interests as well president trump is the glue that's not going to be the case anymore it's it's most prominent but as you see it in the trade issues where we're trying to simply get fair and reciprocal trade between United States and China but I think you also see and all the other components of the challenge the China presents whether it's pushing back as we've done here at the state department on the risk presented by a Chinese telecommunications infrastructure while way and others the work that we've done to convince our partners around the world that allowing China to make investments in their countries that will ultimately make them vassal states of China along every dimension political diplomatic and security were pushing back to make sure the American people are protected against the challenges that China presented to us and the staying power is there no matter how long this takes because the markets go up every day they go down every day based upon rumors and I keep saying this is a long negotiation is complicated that that's exactly right look rather jobs pretty focused he said that the conditions for the trade team which were pretty straight forward we want them to stop still on our stuff to stop forcing our companies to transfer technology if they just simply want to do business and serve the Chinese market we want our trade barriers god they want we want their terror the Nanterre fares we want a fair trading relationship China is no longer appropriately a developing country inside of the deaths this is the Hugh Hewitt.

"eight hundred years" Discussed on Power 105.1 FM

"To their population ten times the immigration of the United States ten times mostly Muslim and we don't have Muslims being shot in the street we don't have the different ethnic groups who eight hundred years ago fought each other shooting each other in the street began their last mass political killing nineteen thirty two just before World War two and a switch news if they allow this nationalist to creep and grow in Switzerland that they were going to be consumed and in the not see it you know by the not the way in which they were able to avoid a uniquely in World War two and they and so one thing that happened here from the top do they have white supremacists here you bet white nationalism here you bet the anti Semites white nationalists but you know what it is not tolerated by the government and I'm a talk about what your legal and illegal I'm talking about it is not culturally accepted it is completely for betting because they realize that when you threaten the new when you threaten immigrants when you threaten blacks Jews whomever or the Catholics threaten the Protestants to reverse that the entire society is in danger they have all these guns like I say because they're there this is a real gun culture and yet they don't have the killings so part one thing is a complete cultural ET you know if someone speaks a fascist **** or a a racist statement it is immediately attacked by everyone around which is culturally completely unacceptable and the second thing and this is you know longer term you have a lot of angry white guys here and they're here too why don't they pick up the guns and automatic weapons that they are given in keep in their home and I think number one the answer is that Switzerland has full employment and basically anyone who wants a job get a job at their highest skill level and you will be trained to it so there is now a full employment but full unionized high level highly played employment employment the average family's lifestyle in income is far higher than the United States and it is really a mobile society which we used to be a land of opportunity that kind of gone out the window so now you have a lot of resentment and I'm not using the shooters but you know the guy that killed people at that garlic festival in California wrote a note saying about how his hatred not only of Mexican immigrants to California but also of the yuppies from Silicon Valley coming into his area and and taking over the housing and they're getting the job he's left out so you have this so here yeah you have you're going to always have racist you're gonna have anti semite you're gonna have threatening people and and skinheads etcetera but one of actual cultural damnation of these you don't get a Donald Trump saying well the kind of nice people that's one and two you make sure that the cause of resentment doesn't build that people get work no matter their creed no matter white black looks alone Protestant a Roman Catholic it's a commitment to everyone working and when you have a job you're not you know you're not spending all night gaming how many black people you can kill with your cigarette out in a while let me go to you Trevor this Trevor is mean I really appreciate the fact that you offer another perspective from you know because you are closer to peak voter judge than I am and then anyone else on this panel is and what do you see a yeah I want to take a minute not just in my closer people to judge but I'm closer to all of the shooters these are young white men close to your half you you're in there that I am absolutely I mean within five years of almost all of these mass shooters hate isn't meal right hate is not a new thing in this country we it was founded in some ways on hate but there are two big things that a change when we have a white nationalist in the light house it's just true that's what we have and so people are I think emboldened it in that way but the other one is that the way that technology has changed means that these young white men who don't have many friends who aren't you know a part of their you know local community are able to go online into the darkest corners of the internet and find people like them who can radicalize them further who can kind of a each other on saying that they're going to do this mass shooting or that my and you find these in almost every single case that we've had these young white men who are getting killed buying assault rifles and shooting schools or malls or entertainment districts in almost every single case they went online first and they found a community of hate to be a part of and it resonates from the White House absolutely and they're given permission frankly the White House and and this president Donald Trump gives them permission to act in this way and that I think still the biggest difference that we have from under the from these other countries because hate is not unique to the United States it's certainly a big part of our country but he is not unique to us what is unique and and what is unlike any other country the sheer number of assault weapons that we have not hand guns but you know HK forty seven variants you know these types of that these are weapons of war that it that have that you can purchase and that are in your home that are in your home and like you mentioned the governor of Texas earlier great abit of who's now talking about we need to hold this person accountable and it's a hate crime and it's a hate cap right murderer great added in twenty fifteen treated that Texas that Texas was only number two and how many assault rifles they were purchasing there are some other states that have purchased well that year and so he was saying we have to become number one everyone go out my assault rifles so this guy did this guy went out he bought an assault rifle and now we have what manta miss you know being nearly two dozen people who are dead because of it and he was given permission from the White House and he was given the the weapons of war from his governor and sadly there will be more if we do not stop and were on track for that very Magnus before I go to the callers I'm just concerned that it's so open there was a time in there was a woman last week use the N. word to some African American women in a restaurant she was no she was on video right and she was very unapologetic because she was she have sailed nearly a half hour say what you say it and they say did you mean to say that and she said absolutely hold on because like when when they confronted her when she was confronted by the yeah you's person's right right by the media she said norm and say that I meant to say what did you think of that when you saw that Betty well I mean just because you live in this little movement this we have hidden for years and now it's out there all alone no fifty years you have been I mean I have known you all of my life practically and you have that you've been marching even registering people to vote picketing ticketing I mean it leaving your job to come over to the breadbasket offices in the push off in that range may shops you came out of retirement how does when you see that woman do that and then you see these murders because that's what they are the murders modus little a mass shooting the kind of cleans it up these murders I am concerned about where millennials are in this I don't know if they're going to speak out and when I see speak out we have four Congress woman who are speaking out and putting their lives in danger just because they're speaking out which is what we did in the sixties but where the rest of the millennium well and the seventies and eighties let's not forget reference was the first presidential candidate to get his secret service protection the daily here now right so speaking up and speaking out can be a very dangerous proposition particularly for those who speak out against injustice let me go to Joe from east LA Joh welcome to the show thank you for calling I know you thank you for being gracious taking my call you know what this and you know I am a little bit disturbed that you're blaming the president and the and the NRA and if the president is responsible for the shooter then Bernie Sanders is equally if not you've been more responsible for the congressional shooting now do you see where we're going here so now we know Joe hold on because I'm not I'm not trying to stop you I wanna hear you thinking because I I honestly do not understand it so I did not want Joe Joe hold on I'd like you to respond to this because Pete blue to judge the mayor of south bend young young man he was speaking before one of the nation's largest labor unions and he went directly to this he said America is under attack I quote him from home grown white nationalist terrorism white nationalism is evil and it is inspiring people to commit to commit murder and it is being condoned at the highest levels of the American government and that has to end the FBI is now saying that the greatest set to threat to our domestic peace and security is white white nationalism now that is what quite frankly this what white people say so I want you I want you to respond to that and I need to we need to hear what you're thinking because you're seeing something very different than what we're seeing now I'll give it to you very straight please if you look at the White shooters a majority of their party registration what Democrats most of the white shoes we were Democrats okay now this is a partisan issue yeah why now we.

The Science Of Cricket Fights

"Let's with the ten gallon hat dine. How about you heard y'all males with big heads are better fighters nails with big heads think they're better fighters true the Chinese? I needed been betting on cricket fight since assume dynasty as far back as eight hundred years ago they claim that bigger headed males were better fighters. It wasn't until recently that scientists put that idea to the test in their experiments they tested may oldfield crickets and competitions where they paired males with similar body mass and size but different heads sizes they found that males with larger heads one more fights than males with smaller heads. Why do they think that happened because? Rose crickets with bigger heads have bigger weapons weapons what kinds of weapons insects mouth parts go maxine and manuals maximally are used for swallowing and manuals for grasping crushing or cutting food the size casualties mouth parts depends on head size they seek out from the front of their head and make great pinscher like weapons for grappling so what's the fighting for males live in small Berle's. I like to think of them as bachelor pads. Only instead of paying rent they have defend off males who may be interested in taking their territory the mail that gets the bachelor pad gets a chance to attract females. He does this by singing.

France vows to rebuild after Notre Dame fire

"Nine. French president Emmanuel Macron has estimated don't take five years maybe a little longer to rebuild Notre Dame cathedral after that fire that occurred Monday. However collect conflicting reports have come out saying that it could take closer to maybe fifteen years. This comes in the middle of the Macron's political troubles such as the large protests about rising prices of gas, president Macron speaking, not just to the French people. But to the world pledged. Saddam even will be busy. Sunday's must be done in five years. We can point to some that's quite a bold and aggressive pledge any forty year. Megan Rupe, my daughter who's lived and worked in Paris for more than five years now and lives near the cathedral says the estimates reported in the local newspapers on local television news suggests it will take much longer decades the shortest time line. She heard as the day went on in Paris, maybe ten to fifteen years, and this makes sense because in that same speech mccrone also said. Let's be willing to. The estimated time line is the second shock wave to hit Parisians the first the fire itself. Of course, the second not so much the timeline. But what the time line means? It'll be a different time for my my children. Now, the whole skyline of Paris is going to look different for quite a while skyline. That was for more than eight hundred years is changed maybe four decades. So what does this mean for Macron if within five years, the cathedral's mutt restored? Megan says, it's hard to say given the political troubles. Their president has had. In an out of that happening over fourteen fifteen week, June is French for yellow vest, the yellow vest protests that started out over an increase in gas prices in his grown into an entire movement of people criticizing thrown for being out of touch with the poor and middle class. And actually last night. He was supposed to address the kitchen of the human. And then he had to move it. Because of you know, join the toilet incident did his presence and his words have a positive impact on his tremendous political career. I politically, correct. Particularly moved by it. But they weren't unhappy with it just that that was the correct response to what was going on in that. They appoint that we've done at the filing of this report. There had been no update on his approval rating. But the local press is reporting what Megan just told us. It may take the fulfillment of the promise to rebuild Notre Dame within five years to endear macaroni to all the citizens of

Flags: whose is best?

Flags: whose is best?

"Us. Very few people whether they're happy admitting it or not are entirely indifferent to the hoisting of the country's flag. For a survey of what different flags mean to the people of different nations. We consulted the riot Asli multinational stuff here at monocle. I'm the foreign editor here at Monaco. Canada's flag the maple leaf was introduced in the sixties as way to set itself apart from the Union, Jack, which was on our previous leg since. Then it's probably most notable around the world as being spotted on backpackers backpacks as this rose in the seventies. When Canadians did not want to be mistaken for Americans during the Vietnam war when they were traveling, and that's continued on through the Iraq war and even today. I'm actually betting with Trump. There's been a bump in backpack sport in Canada flex. I'm Stephanie's Kia, and though I may not sound like it. I grew up in the United States where the flag is held in sacred esteem when we were very young we were told that it was not allowed to touch the ground and friends of mine who attended senior schools at after I left had to swear allegiance to it. It's a symbol that is everywhere in public life. You'll see it in the grocery store and at the gas station. I'm Karen Miller. And I'm the culture editor at Monaco. Now unity is not an easy thing to combine Italian politics or for that matter in its citizens national identity, but it is that precious and rare feeling that the Italian flag represents and celebrates over the years. It has naturally been used by people in all signs of the political spectrum from partisans to fascists, but somehow it has managed not to become just a preserve of far-right and theorists. It remains overall a benign and relatively neutral symbol of Italy's institutions its constitution and its young Republic, not particularly incendiary symbol. And when was the last time anything to do with the Todd politics felt fairly sedate? I'm Ben violent a producer and present at monocle twenty four. Now, I've got to say that the Estonian flag has long been a fairly contentious issue. Although overwhelmingly it is seen as a positive symbol. I would say that considering that indigenous Australians aren't necessarily represented on the flag. He can lead to a bit of misunderstanding to the types of issues that indigenous people do phase now importantly indigenous people do have their own flag. And that is why the respected among the strains as well. It's often seen at sporting events and the international events as well. So it's not as if there is no representation whatsoever. But when Austria tries to pitch it's flag as one fly, the represents all stray liens one. Does get the feeling that. Actually, there are a large number of stray into might feel as though in fact, they're not represented by that one single flag. I'm page and I'm a research app. One cool twenty full, and I am from the exotic southwest suburbs of London for me the Union Jack is actually quite an aesthetic flag, very bold colors at symmetrical and very recognizable. But it's still interesting. It's not just a Colo this sort of intricacy to the pattern. In fact, it's service Leszek that I chose the Union Jack to be on my bed sheets at my in my first year of university. And I studied in Dublin this proved slightly problematic as any later that I sort of realized that the eight hundred years or so of oppression was a factor. I should have considered before the junk on my bed sheets. And I think that's why maybe people feel a little bit uncomfortable about the Union Jack of it is so closely associated with the Royal family and colonialism, and it's got that nasty hangover sense about her. I'm your lane if affair and where I'm from. A nation is divided as Belgium split between the Flemish in the north and the loons in the south the flag has hardly anything to do with patriotism. It is almost exclusively used at sporting events. When at least we're little while the nation feels United even separatists don't mind waiting the Belgian flag and the World Cup from his will be merely seen as supporting the Red Devils. This is the foreign desk on monocle twenty four I'm joined once again by two Marshall, and we wanted to close out the program by by trying to set the oh, I'm sure not at all vexed question of whose flag of all the countries in the world ease best. I've drawn up a little list of my own come up with five that I really liked for various reasons be interested to see if they overlap with yours, we have not shared notes. Maybe if we start with what what are your top five over there? Okay. To be boring. I'll have to say that it is subjective. And if you'd say what are the best flags that work? I would give you different lists giving them even example. I like the Kenyan flag because the designs crying good. But the the the shield in the middle of it is a mess, I warrior shield now the messiah only about one point five percent of the Kenyan population. If it'd been a shield who are about twenty percent poppulation that would be a serious problem. It would be a bad fly. Leg because why do they went into the mess? I nobody's really bothered is simply something. Oh, yeah. It's symbol of our nation. So it's a good flag, Mozambique. It's on my list right for bad flags. I hope I caught like, okay. Well, I think it's a bad flack because it's got an AK forty seven on it, which isn't good. I believe but also because it's so similar to the flag of from yellow which was the organization that took on joined the independence fight full moat, Mozambique. But the problem is they represented overwhelmingly woman, particularly ethnic grouping in Mozambique. And so they pretty much said right off lag is now going be the national flag. So I think that's also that's a negative flag. Right. Good flexible flex. I. That's through the good flags. I like the Japanese flag simple, but effective, and when you know, a will the sun never sets, and you know, that behind Japan there is nothing except the sea. And then that sun, which is why I love the Macedonian flag is just mad. It's on my list. Okay. The sunburst it comes from Alexander. The great that they think was Macedonian, of course, the Greek student agree. It's just so not in the grouping of European flags each their South Korea is nice. It's not on my list. But it's in the Yang light. So over there in eastern and the little things in each corner. Actually, they mean, something to the South Koreans Brazil. Yeah. Good co- bit fussy. If you wanna talk, I let's believes but. The stars on the Brazil flag are in the position. They were on the day that independence was declared in the sky, which I like an I also liked the colors. But that's where the subjective thing in how we imbue meaning to it. I like the Brazilian football team and they play in those colors. And so it's kind of more attractive was in and of itself is just blue green Italy simply because it's such a fantastic lease simple and beautiful flag that immediately says good food. Bit again, that's the reverse engineered projection things. Actually, I also had on my list. I had Pakistan's flag, which I think is is simple and beautiful until the story of the country and has become trees. Placing the little stripe down the left hand side of the flagpole side is to include all the minorities of the indeed. So I I think it's a lovely flag. The practice may not have worked out quite like the theory. But I do like to play it's important that you have there. It's like I said the American flag doesn't always live up to its idea until the factors is if it's the thirteen stripes for the thirteen colonies, and they fought for liberty against the oppressive Brits. So in the flag is the concept of liberty. And it's important to have it there. Even if you don't always live up to its value. The ones I have mostly in aversion to flags which have the map of the country on them. So that Cyprus and Kosovo I think Cambodia's is annoying because it's just being tourist attraction in the middle of Bosnia. And Kosovo both looked like they were designed by committees. Try not to upset. Anybody and I guess understand. Also, I know the man who designed the Bosnian flag so much will pass it on to. Which might your list of disagreeable, Mozambique for reasons that we've gone into ready in the K forty-seven Greenland. It's just read in top and white at the bottom. And then the circle in the middle of it, which is white at the top. It's just boring. Uganda? Uganda's is black horizontal stripes. Black yellow red followed by black yellow red. It's like you've taken the German flag in the Belgian flagging sewn them together. And in the middle is this bird. It looks like a sort of chicken, you get an Endo's. It's actually the crane which is a national vase just it's just too fussy Nigeria. Green white green. Great country. But no such a like, and then Antarctica again the same guy that designed the Bosnian flag design how to hand in designing the talk to flag two thousand and two NET simply on a blue background for neutrality. And then the shape of enter Antarctica on it. It's just the best for like in the world. But the best flag in the world. I think we have agreed is Macedonia's. No, we have. Agreed. It's yorkshire. Is there a Yorkshire flank? We'll call is what's on light blue background with the white rose of Yorkshire Brian there in the middle, which I happen to have exactly the same thing. Tattooed on my right shoulder. So officially then the best flag in the world is Yorkshire Macedonia. Running a close second for my lecture notes on social thank you for. But he's it for this episode of the foreign desk went back next week and lookout for the foreign disc spleen available every Wednesday the foreign desk is produced by Yanni Goffin and Bill Bill so edits the program. My name's Andrew Miller. Thanks very much for listening until next time. Goodbye.
