Pelosi's January 6 Committee Demands Phone Records From Republican Congressmen
"I want to talk about briefly. What Pelosi is having this commission she set up with all Democrats and to never Trumpers. On January 6th how they're subpoenaing. Members of Congress. Of the subpoenaing the former president of the United States. And Jonathan Turley has this right? In the Hill newspaper says he quotes this Chairman Bennie Thompson from Mississippi, a Democrat. And he says, We have quite an exhaustive list of people. I won't tell you who they are with those words. Thompson confirmed that a subpoena storm was about to be unleashed in the investigation of the January six ride in Congress, he writes. The targets would include Republican members, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, representative Jim Jordan. We've already been told to preserve their phone records to be surrendered to the committee. The Democrats are reportedly trying to prove their prior claims that Republicans conspired or assisted insurrectionist quote unquote Even though the FBI reportedly found no evidence of a planned insurrection. But these are the dead enders. While all this is going on in the country, while all this is going on in Afghanistan, this is what the Democrats are doing because they're good at this. They're good at Stalinist old Soviet tactics. That's what they are. That's who they are.
Wrestlemania 37 Review Special (Part 1) ft. Pro Wrestling Insider Shane Peacher (Ball & Buds Podcast Episode #14)
"It felt like the old wwf. You know where they would have the pre match interviews and they just did like a thousand one before the before the show. It was great. It was awesome. I was actually happy that the rain happened. So let's start from the top. And i know you told me to talk about this and i was gonna ask you anyways. How do you. Because you are the biggest cogan hogan fan in the world titus and hulk hogan forever pirates soups. What are you kidding. Me ho me. tease john. Now i love hulk you know that man that was ridiculous and i love the whole a guest host. I guess but i mean it's just so scripted in horrible but it was so tacking it was it was eight hogan and it was hilarious and i loved it anyways just because it was hawk. I'm biased though osos soobee. you're biased. I love to do though even though it was awkward as well like they really tried to force this pairing together and it was like really didn't need to do this right and then of course you know you. They forced it because of the whole inward situation. Because if you remember when it first happened in hall they let hawk come back like titus kind of had an issue if you remember if you remember that whole scenario so i think they did. I think it was forced because that which is awkward. And i think hilarious because although titus forgave. I don't think he forgets to say i heard that. China's said technically forgiving him. But i heard that he was also still feeling that obviously so i was really awkward but it was kind of funny to me and i'm sure well speaking of they let that happen. Also because titus was in tampa so they actually tried to prop him up in his hometown but biggie. They took the championship from. Why do wwf keep letting or keep wanting to humiliate the wrestlers by having them losing their hometown. Do they think that this is good. Because it's not no. I don't know if it's hometown thing. I just think if you look back after the fat none of the world championship changed and so they had to change the littler titles. I think that's really it. You know what i mean. Because how many mania is does a world title never changed especially nixon had to one for each show. You know what i mean you have the world title and then undisputed title. Neither changed hands. And that's rare for mania. You always usually have a title change Meanwhile when i heard it will trump ender explanation is. I'm gonna beat you so it sounds like a drum is like okay. These kids don't even know what the matches but it was just a weapons manage. You know why. Why why you know what i'm saying. I mean they had like a whole bunch of guys around the ding beating drums. And you know the exact same thing you know. Maybe the an open pit you know like the african wrestling. I don't know if you've ever seen it looks like we're like scooting around in dirt. Yes can you know single knees wrestling that whack. I know the the matches it was kinda. Get his get his turn to because kofi had a big wrestlemainia match aside from the tag team for when he went for the title. This is big east big match. But of course he's got to lose because he's in results were rating so far right now the only result i think that was correct was owens. This was correct if it wasn't in his hometown but

"Following. It's the second part of our four part interview with martin cooper inventor the phone. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge or one of the issues. I've talked a lot about on this podcast and seen that in general the issue of the digital divide. I know you talked about that near the tail. Ender near the second part of your books. I'd love to get your perspective on really the deserve holistic impact of the cell phone and whether or not it's been a force for good in how it's been a force for good in closing that broadband gap that digital divide. We'll just think about this routers The whole educational system has been challenged today because the teacher gets up and gives a lecture and he's talking to a bunch of students if they're connected if they have smartphones they have access to all the knowledge the world the shakers not gonna give them information that they can find words so the whole nature of what a teacher is changes. The teacher now teaches people how to reach out for of religion. How to handle it. Taylor's educative process to individuals that having a lecturer to talk a people each different girl every other person. So we discover that what the result of this is that people's minds the challenge borden. They did before and the result of that. Is it their brains. Get bigger thinking smarter. Just think about that. Now that in this country one of the most advanced countries not in the world but in history forty percent of the students in this country do not have access to broadband wireless forty percent. Just imagine what that means over long term when the educational process chain that we end up with forty percent of the population with bigger brains. They're smarter or sixty percent and forty percent are dummies unacceptable with Broadband wireless now as essential to people as water food. So somehow that problems got to get fixed at the moment. The government is not digging right approaches. The only way to do that is through a first of all accept the fact this is essential and go to the carriers people have exclusive use of a spectrum and tell them either. You service all of the public or we're going to allow other people to do it. The technology exists to provide students with robin wireless whereas littlest cyber ten dollars a month. At that level everybody can have access to the but semi were we have to remove moves us exit seventy two big guys t verizon d mobile. They're doing a great job for the dense areas for the city's suburbs. They are not to have good job for the rural areas. They are after a good job for the people that can't afford a sixty dollars a month for a cellphone. The technology exists to do the both of those legs to handle people that can't afford into the rural areas and it's up to the government now to do figure out ways for business to provide those two kinds of services. We have to have one hundred percent accessibility for students and ultimately for everybody. Because i i'm so delighted you read the book because you know that it's not just education it's healthcare we're all going to be ultimately connected have have our bodily characteristics measured continually. There is the potential that we can anticipate diseases in people before they happen. Just because we're measuring things continually so healthcare is going to be a revolution. You can't provide after one segment of the public but public and keep it from other people so between those two issues education healthier and then you get the most important wall in. That's what your profession is is. Collaboration is getting people to talk to each other to generate ideas to people who are always more creative corporate than one person but of you got people talking to each other groups independent of time independent of where they are the potential for improving the productivity of people will be such that the idea of poverty will disappear.

"That that the clubs there are are are seeking to force the French government to give them the right to reopen the stadia. So so I think I think the reason why we're seeing a feeding frenzy. Of private equities very simple private equity went into the virus crisis with over a trillion in the bank to spend he said the big American base. And Seen them being very active in the space for four or five years. The. Main way that we see them working is really to step into the breach. Of because of this crisis situation. In in terms of. In terms of the COPS, and there is no greater crisis situation than the Italian clubs at this time for whole variety of reasons the income from broadcasters is relatively low by comparison with other countries. So the rebates have had to be very substantial. So I think that the private equity folk. Are really basically going to be interested in in very long-term sports franchises but in the case of Italy also got the limit on the fifteen percent, which is there to guarantee. Italian ownership of some kind of some description and that's very important. I. Think in Italy in particular because of the political dimension. So it is very important for clubs to be able to speak to govern say, can we just reopen our stadium please they have to have some voice there so so that's that's why that rule has been put in. I predict that Siri rights will actually fall in value. No matter who which Private Equity Company. Comes to own the? New. The new, essentially marketing vehicle for the rights just kind of financial construct which has been put on the table. And I I think I think those rights will go down. So the clubs need shoring up and obviously the clubs will also need assistance in navigating scraping world, and if you look at some of the players that we know are in the frame General Atlantic see, let's see see in particular is one of the most activists cropping up everywhere Australia everywhere and that kind of ability to understand how to exploit global models. So very interesting one that sees is gaining. For instance big investor offices in in rugby, but it's looking at so many different kinds of franchises you know mainly through the the top franchises it's it's gaining a great deal of sanding about about all of these different models and it will gain a great deal of understanding about how to cut costs because.

"With their subscribers and delivering a very great deal of value, and in fact, they have been prepared to take increasing loss in the area, which is probably going to go down a little bit. In order to keep. Developing viewership. So they've they've basically done extremely well at increasing their audience for for primarily games at a time. When when when basically interest in order to wholesome speed on the way you know so I think there are a lot of elements in the mix there there. There's a lot of different things that are going on people have had a massive explosion in choice. Netflix Youtube. Enacting plus these all Israel competing for tension but. As I said the sport, the sports image is unchanged from from from a generation ago and and everything that it does doesn't seem to work to really. Drive any change in that the youtube channel of the primarily clubs. Are are not to material. They're they're they're certainly no replacement for. For the impact of of of the pay TV window on on these Games. So, there is A. Sense that highlights and clips are just marketing material rather than something to be monitored you think that's going to change there was. Interesting. Quote whether. That's been probably over-analyzed Peter Scott Warner media. Vice President, suggested the highlights. We'll be more valuable than live rights because he thinks that's where the the capacity for growth is but that is quite difficult to to to make a business case for isn't it impossible? Now I think he's completely wrong. No I think he's absolutely wrong. I think one can just say Oday wrong verse easy. Ever Way to people. On a systematic basis, they're uploaded right away. I mean there is a desire in the primarily to be newsworthy and that and to be shared, and that trump's any idea of monetization we forget that. So what is done and as I said, the viewing clearly shows that people are focused on live games and high quality live games even more but they're not interested in stuff and they're not interested in secondary filler sport not at. All. So the monetary values definitely would live and that has been show in the fact that it is so significantly valuable to sky and bt that they did very, very alarming sums for these gains. Absolutely the monetary value is totally with live in relation to the PO, and that's why to be true therefore of everybody else I mean let's face it. There is an empirical way to look at this, which is this is that the Skies Youtube highlights. Channel. Has had no discernible impact on his ability to increase the viewing of a primarily game..

"And I know that that bts completely committed to to to the peons well, I want to jump from there then because it seems to be a the audience when as soon as a sport lightfoot boy, you know there was a moment there in the last couple of months where suddenly premier league was on. Free to air. Television. There is the audience aging demographics of of this is facing lots of different. Sports but. There is a sort of assumption that it's attack tech driven changing behavior but actually. Economics explains most of it doesn't it in terms of just been the young people are being priced out of watching sport. There is no question that a generation ago young people were subscribers to sports and that was true up until really the arrival of Youtube. And Netflix in the UK twenty twelve I mean obviously smartphones have have have done their bit and so on. So but I would say that there's also many many more options for young people at Gaming options in particular East sports been a tremendous draw for for for for for younger demographics. I. Also think that the image of the store has suffered from the fact that it never changes. It's always Berry stupid hell racing footballers, wags, and that's very unattractive to young people. So it it but I would say that the problem viewing in sports is actually across the piece. So. So although we've seen a sports viewership. So sixteen to thirty four accounted for around eighteen percent sports viewership ten and only twelve percent to twenty nineteen. But even for those aged fifty, five plus future, really very, very hard core sports fans and obviously very heavy viewers. They don't do an awful lot more of the. Lune. TV. The average of sports television actually thousand thirty eight percent in. Saint. Period. So compared to only fourteen percent TV as a whole. So they've basically stayed with TV as a whole, but they've really declined on sports television. So I think that. The fall off. Well, we know where the fall off is really been. Basically people are not interested in all of the non live material and filler. Okay. They're not interested in that. They're they're not staying with channels offer that just off right away. And and so you know but overall, I would say that you know the candidate Hem if we may speak of it like the primarily is still very robust. So that is also another really interesting phenomenon, which is that. The top events are staying more significant in the mix and the lesser events are falling away right. So it's very hard to get interest for anything apart from football and rugby. And Formula One so that's it. So essentially, you're living in a world where we're we're the top value franchises are essentially more visible to that young audience and they're really. As as we know primarily interested in free clips. So they're not subscribing because access is immediate. It plays to the news focus of young people of knowing what's going on, but but the real fan base is not being developed. So so so that's a fact The real football fan base is in is in decline and it's is in decline across the peace. Now, skies own performance within that has been exemplary because. The PL. Average. Was Up this year to one point four, million at unit before the stoppage one point, four, million people, which is which is excellent. So so as I said, they're they're very good at putting a lot of very hard work into developing those audiences through their. Exploitation of of their extraordinarily. Dancing, rich customer data management. So so the very good at.

"You've got a the view of the sort of risk reward ratio, which is always the risk is always loaded in terms of on the Brokaw side of they pay these enormous fees and and. Work. Very hard to try to make that money back fragging disown example in Japan recently where they've restructured lengthened the deal but also with the j-league in Japan which is significant for design, it's not something I want to of spending almost amounts of time on but that sort of conversation that you're looking at it was it was mentioned Bonnie Francis Suggested it was a it was a could be a fascinating case study of of how Brokaw's to start to change that ratio and mellowed some risk back onto the rights hold I think we're going to see that in the UK at all you know sky and bts or in a completely different financial situation disowned his own is raising a billion dollars. It's it's in a state of crisis. It's pulling out of the USA Brazelle and is only staying in Japan because of came to a revenue sharing deal with Gaoli, the divas their venture essentially gives an ownership stake to the daily. So, they were forced to accept these terms. Okay. The j-league was forced to accept these terms because no one else is interested in them and there's no other way to market. In the way that they're used to. So so that just shows that there are a lot of people who wander into the game or into the sports area and they and they make it. That's like media pro or disown, and they pull the cloud I mean deserves global platform is going to be one which is uniquely focused on boxing I mean it's the net export that is just so over for design now. and. So I would see again Japan's very big country. But j-league is very particular interest. So so so I think that's just the best that they could do I mean that's not going to happen where we have very very well established well-financed. A broadcasters do the UK. Is, not, going to happen but it just does show that the net flicks sports concept that zone was so keen on proselytizing did start out with full approach. That is just so over it's not gonNA work to sound is just basically doubling up on on Europe and a general Germany particular. And it's not it's not going anywhere. For sure. For sure completely blown out of the water in in the USA in Brazil and essentially they have to fold in Japan and find another way to continue in business in that market there they don't I mean if they're raising a billion dollars of. That is just going to basically go to support their liberal boxing thing. They're they're they're they're nothing to worry about that never worried anything to worry about in the UK..

"Has felt very vulnerable in the past but we'll see I think this auction, they're entering stronger position they have. have. Actually got many more games, two packages and song they can probably afford both of these companies can probably afford knowing exactly what's going on with their own situation they can. They can really afford to to offer less if they want it. But as I said, they're very emotional fares but you sky's not been emotionally affected by these auctions for some time I'd say, really the last three. Years. We've seen a extraordinary discipline sky and I think that will continue at. We see that across the piece as well. I mean every single other auction date very discipline. They have an overall view about what works for them why and they know what they're doing. So I'm thinking that this auction could lead to Fox ten percent declines in rites values in the UK of that sport less. Determined Sick five years in which case that would be that would that would sort of changed the Dr that would that would basically guarantee I think that they would basically have about the same last time and this would also enable long-term audience development because one of your questions ready covers some which is worrying, which is basically to get. long-term audience developed that you actually need and and essentially the inflation which which I was referred to as fairy godmothers on understanding things. certainly at the close thinking that there was a unending. You know lineup of companies right after bt there was going to be another group of mugs in a curl, the tech companies who would step right in and so on. Exactly the same thing all over again and that just has proved to be false and. You have structural losses and you have models that require these extraordinarily significant commitments to in the case of sky. It is the single most important force in British football at the grassroots. It really knows what it stating it has to work on long term basis in Scandinavia. The said to have signed a longer deals and I I strongly recommend. To the PL KLOPP's thing, want to sort themselves out after all they just had a blood bath event, which is the virus crisis which exposed all of these clubs to paying rebates no way of knowing that back from their players So so you have a lot of distress clubs around the place, and so I hope that they'll be thinking sensibly about how to insulate themselves in what is going to be a very long virus crisis lasting to my these five years. So now on the plus side of this equation, I don't think there's any any any risk to the core values for its insofar as. You know the fact dates assists that live events are very valuable audiences comeback very well. I would argue we think that word subscriptions around around Europe or around the world are basically. Holding up at have held up post the furloughed because of the inventiveness of could black sky suspending payments. It's also the value of sports. Definitely you know they've had a good crisis for MAC respective. Have opposite gasoline or crisis as indeed have the players says a couple of things that I just want to pick up on just very quickly..

"Of this rule that there should be two bidders in every auction. For instance. SETANTA. Eleven sports. Disown is now withdrawing from various markets. So so the level of competition that as dual rights packages has ushered in. As actually been injurious for for for many investors and it's just part of an interesting global. So. So what we've seen is is is that there isn't any change anyway, I mean, we're not saying a an outbreak of of common sense or long-term thinking even now even as we know as as you know united half discussing, one of the things that I would say is My firm is very good. At predicting the overall shape of things to come. So we make very provocative predictions in order to warn old and to give them a lot of information about what's really going on and what really happens on the finances. As. You know many people who sports business are struggled with basic numeracy and as a result, they don't understand what the impact of money wastage really is on the sport and on the players and on the access to the game I mean what we've seen is access in a paradoxical way. Squeezed, off? By Sports France inflation. Rather, than liberated so But anyway you had a whole series of questions. Richard and I really have prepared very detailed answers to each of them. So you'd better crack only have so much time. Okay since I'm it's a game you mentioned in terms of. The spans of the contracts each time a primarily contract comes up there is a question is the peak sport questioned the market sports rights generally could you just take us inside a? We talk a lot about the primarily side of this, but warping the what's been the longer term impact on the value of sky and and to lesser extent bt of their their sports strategy do you think that's a very good question? So actually we've already seen peaks or it's in the past, right? Certainly in the UK terms you know the last auction was was was basically. pass peak in his down the takings were dad we expect that to continue the overall market for sports meteorites of that level the premium level I'm talking really peo- onto sleek. Can Song is down slightly, and we expect that to continue through the upcoming auction such as the Peo- In fact that just continues this.

Because you're very interesting and made up of many different countries, all of them with very different models. And that is in opposition to the large scale global models, which as we know, have become had become the dominant. Life forces across a number of different sectors, but of course has long been true. And Sports is actually one of the most interesting areas because it both focuses its value on life on local. On territorial rights. So it's it's a very interesting and say potentially could be considered an fashion model in many ways in the world with. evaluations such as Netflix's effective valuations within the Disney mix of these are titanic plays in. Of course, we are now two weeks after the point when apple became more valuable than all of the cincy one hundred.

USPS suspends changes, but what does that mean?
"The US Postmaster General Louis Joy says he is suspending plans to reorganize agency. This move comes after House Speaker Nancy, Pelosi called Congress back from recess to vote on a bill to protect the postal service until the election, he was her response yesterday. They felt the heat. And that's what we were trying to do is to make it too hot for them to handle and yet she and other Democrats are still not entirely satisfied. Let's talk about what's going on here with NPR's miles parks who's been covering this miles. Hi David Will. So let's pick for exactly what the postmaster general announced here that that he's not making operational changes until after the November elections, right? Right. He says his plans for a transformation postal service are going to going on hold until after the election. Remember. He'd promised his organizational realignment just a few weeks ago as an effort to save money. But those changes although they were never publicly detailed in practice led to mail delays frustration from postal workers, unions, and fears about the election in a year where the majority of ballots are probably going to be delivered via the mail. The political backlash was loud and swift as Pelosi alluded to there. And he was forced to change course singing a statement yesterday that quote to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election male I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded well as for those fears about the election I, mean many people were very blunt in saying they feared the president trump was trying to meddle in the election. So this move seems to be what Democrats? Were demanding what why aren't they fully satisfied so it's a step in that direction, but there's still no word on if the joys going to reverse the changes that have already been made their move sorting machines, for instance, has been a high profile issue. The Washington Post reported that the plan was to decommission ten percent of these machines and we know that some of them had already begun to. Be removed to join. Now says that there are no more machines will be removed, but as Stephen made no mention of the machines that were already removed and whether they'll be returned, I talked to Alex, Padilla who's the secretary of State of California and a Democrat after the statement was released by joy yesterday, they still have a lot of questions to answer and frankly information to share whatever these. Changes Directives were the public deserves to see them because the public deserves to have confidence that when their mailing their ballots ender bats will be delivered on a timely basis. So lawmakers will have a lot of questions for Detroit week when he set to testify before a Senate committee on Friday and then a house committee again on Monday. We've been hearing a lot of Democrats and their voices. Criticizing all of this, it's important to know Republicans have been really worried about all this as well. Right Republican Senator Susan Collins who had called onto joy to rescind the changes said on twitter that she was happy about this statement. But she also now says Congress needs to pass funding for the Postal Service, which is heading towards financial ruin. If Congress does not swoop in in the next few months, even President Trump tweeted save the post office this. Week after you know openly questioning whether he would support funding just a week ago. So it seems like there's some agreement some bipartisan agreement that money is needed. The question now is how much Democrats even Republicans like Collins say twenty five billion dollars is the number but Republicans in the Senate like Senator Ron Johnson may question whether that much money is actually needed. And so you mentioned is going to be testifying in both chambers the Senate is I write on Friday? What would we expect there? Right. So we're going to be watching for is one whether the Republicans we have to remember that joys a major Republican donor considering many of these Republicans represent rural constituencies who stand up potentially be hurt by mail the ways how hard Republicans press him the other thing that election officials are going to be watching for is more concrete details on his plans around the election. A lot of Democrats as you mentioned earlier, have accused him of sabotaging the mail in an effort to affect male voting election officials are worried about that. It'll be interesting to see how far joy goes to kind of assuage those

Look forward to a bunch of new features including a motion layout API for creating Ui animations, which this is integrated now into the motion editor. Editor tool which makes it easier, then just adding XML files my hand, so I think of it as little more of a drag and drop approach, versus maybe what you were doing before other features including rewritten layouts inspector tool also a build analyzer to increase the speed of build times by identifying bottlenecks in the build so ultimately. This helps you and this helps those of US using android in the end right gotta make things more efficient.

Give yourself a little excitement.
Comics' Place in Protests
"What I want to talk about though is I want to talk. About how? FANDOM. Has. Influenced me and can't influence. All of us and how and some of the ways that it has? In support insupportable of these protests that are going on right now. And we'll actually in support and in protest of the protests. Of a funny way to do that, I've seen people sharing some. Images from comic books and from TV shows. And I just WANNA share I wanNA. Talk a little bit about how fandom. CAN SHAPE US and should shape us if you listen to our Fanta five with Jam Bell. He talks a lot about how phantom. Influenced Him and taught him how to. Fight for the little guy and help out those around us and I think now more than ever. That's an important time I've realized as I've been talking to people this week. That a lot of the way that I deal with conflict has been from the Book Enders Game I. Know It's a it's A. It's a property from a controversial creator, but that book really did shape a lot of my young adult views and thoughts on life i. What I'm, GONNA conflict with somebody. oftentimes I will look at both sides of the argument. Try to understand the people that I am arguing with and not just understand where they're coming from. But in to to a point that I can feel some empathy for them, and it's difficult. It's hard right now. My heart is hurting for so many different people for so many different reasons. But? There is right and there's wrong. One of the one of the quotes that I've seen thrown around. and see throwing around frequently whenever there's somebody who feels that there is some injustice going on something that they are being told is important. To stand up for, and it's a good quote when you look at it from that aspect but it's one of my least favorite quotes from all of comics. This is captain America from. From the comic books. In this panel he says doesn't matter what the press says doesn't matter what the politicians or the mob say doesn't matter. The whole country decides that something wrong. Is something right? This nation was founded on one principle above all else. The requirement that we stand up for what we believe. No matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you move. Your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth and tell the whole world. Know you move. It's A. It's an inspiring quote. And on its surface, it has inspired many to do the right thing and I will. I will give it that. It is also a slightly. Problematic quote. In the sense that uses in this quote. The principal above all else the requirement that we stand up for what we believe. What you believe is not always right what you believe. Is Not always. WHAT SHOULD BE? and. Planting yourself like a tree. Being immovable is. Is Not how Captain America. Has Been portrayed in so many of the media that I have that's how the punishers portrayed. Yes, it does say that you need to yourself like a tree beside the river of truth. And the problem with that. Is that. We can't agree on what truth is anymore. So I went to the arbiter of truth, wikipedia Pun intended. and. In there for under the under truth, it says. Truth is most often used to mean being accord with fact. Or Fidelity to an original or standard. Truth also sometimes defined in modern context and this is important. Is Divide as an ideal of truth to self or authenticity. You could share this quote from Captain America in an alt-right group that. Advocates genocide. And get a million likes at a thousand shares. This is something that is on its surface, strong and powerful, but when you boil it down because they neutered it by saying what you believe. It makes it. Me Nothing. So if you believe that police brutality is not an issue. Then what this is telling you is you stand next to that and you don't move. If. You believe that racism is not real. This is saying do not move. And what I'm saying is that you need to. We always need to be looking at our views and our takes on the world. And making sure that they're are the right things, and if we're wrong changing, and that does not make us a hypocrite to change our views and our and our viewpoints. It makes us
JoAnn Compton Powell: Moving forward after the death of a daughter
"Ten years ago Cindy lost her sister, Laurie but she says she also lost her mother to. Over the years I've done many shows with parents of murdered children and parents who've lost their children, and never knew what happened to their children, no bodies, no person ever was claimed or or discovered and you Joanne expressed what all of those parents have at some point or another express to me over the years is they want everyone to know that? Their children had a life, and that the life was important and not the death. Because what happens when you have a child who's murdered, this way is everybody focuses on the death. Everybody focuses on who did it or who didn't do it, and who committed the crime and the life is lost so. You have an opportunity to say something today about the kind of person your daughter was. Her life, not her death, but her life. She was very happy person. She enjoyed everything she did. She liked everybody she met. She was beautiful. She made me pray out. I really couldn't believe that I had a child like this. I've been buried like with the two children I have. And they make me so proud as mother. She didn't deserve this. She deserved a lot more. A lot more. So now you're stuck ten years. You have not been able to move on, and you have watched into your mother. Not Be able to move on. What do you want to say? Well, I just want to tell her that I need you I, need you? There is a parent a friend. When we lost Laurie you daughter Alice Desisto. And it was really hard. To find someone to understand pain was filling because Obviously, you took be there at that time for me. With her case there were details that you and dad with health for me and I feel like there are people out there. Were you know more about the case than I do? and. Course when I was a newlywed, we were having problems and. I didn't feel like a come. Come to you and share that with you. I had to go in front of you. Know Groups, fashion and. Lay everything out there and. Try to get some feedback on it so I could get on with my life and deal with it and I just from other back, I do. They're look. I need you back to back and I need to back as my parents and that's my friend. I'm so sorry. For. To to be able to share your pain and your feelings with her and your joys, and your things to have your mother back as a partner again, yes, it would be wonderful It'd be a new beginning. We could get, and we can move forward. You know we could deal with new pains. New Joyce, you know and. I'm. No and We caught a lot of rest in Peace Now. I really do. AM So sorry are really ender the sorry. Let me ask you both something. And I'll address this to you because Cindy I think you've moved on. I, think you feel like you have some closure. You haven't forgotten your sister, have you? Ever any less. Every day. You think about every day, but you're not obsessed with it. And you feel that you are. Okay. I ask you if you could accept some things and another thing I want to know if you can accept. And this is so hard people to think about. But can you accept the fact? That the length and depth of your grieving. Does not reflect the length and depth of your life. You can love somebody this much. And if you if you if you agree for a year, that doesn't mean that you only loved them that much. It's not something that you. Oh, it's not something that you give how long you grieve. Is. Not a reflection of how much you loved the person that you lost. That sounds foreign to you, doesn't it? because. You walk around, you say. How can I be laughing today? And my daughter is dead, and I'm laughing at Disneyworld or I'm laughing at a TV show and my daughter is dead. How can I do that? You ask those questions yourself, don't you? But I'm asking you now. Can you at least entertain the fact that how long you grieve is not a reflection of how deeply you loved your daughter. I believe I. Do can you accept that if you get closure on this? If you say I'm not going to be obsessed with this anymore that you are not betraying your daughter. Yes! I think I can. That's a hard one, isn't it? But I'm asking you. Can you do that? Yes, sir, I think I can if she could talk to you right now. Do, you think she would say mother. I want you to hurt every day for the rest of your life to prove that you left me. No, you think that's what she would say to invade very angry, it may. So. It wouldn't be a betrayal. Maybe the betrayal is focusing on the day of her. Dan Rather than celebrating the event of her life, she lived for eighteen vibrant and wonderful years. and. You focus on the day that she died. I never thought of it that way. I really never thought of it that way. Well maybe it's time to say. I'm GONNA do that. Maybe it's time to say I'm going to focus on her life and celebrate what I had rather than what? lost. You suppose that's a possibility. That would be nice. It'd be very nice. But it means you have to let her go. You have to give her to God and say I'm Gonna I'm this is your job? Man I'll never forget. I'll never stop loving. You'll never stopped being part of my life. But. It's time that I move von. With your sister and with my life. Take you with me and my heart. But. I'm not going to be obsessed with this anymore. Like to work towards that really would. Like to be able to do that? I could see that. That was a light bulb moment for you. When that was because you who said earlier in the show today you can't even bear to smile. You smiled when Phil said that where the order and you're smiling now. The idea. Of celebrating her life living in holding onto the moment of her death. Really, never thought about it I just never thought about it that way never. Okay? Were you take one more step with me. I mean one more, really big big step. Because what I want you to do right now is I. Want you to make a decision? That says I've got to get up tomorrow. and not be consumed with what I'm doing I've gotta get up tomorrow and have different life I've got to get up and not spend all of my waking hours thinking about my daughter thinking about my loss. And I've been here before and I'm telling you to do that. You have to willing to give it up now. You have to be willing. To say in your heart to, Laurie. I've gotTA. Let you go. I've got to say goodbye I've got to let you go. Because you, you said yourself be really mad at me. She must be really mad at me because we can hold people to an earthly bond, that way can't wait. I believe so. Really Day. Turn your chair and face me. Real close. I want to ask you. Is it time to say by the Laurie. Yes
How to Tend Your InnerSpark
"Hello Hello Hello Okay. So I'm realizing how truly now more than ever this work? The work of my soul. The work that has saved my life has guided me has served me in. So many ways is needed. And how literally everything in my life and I'm sure your life as well has prepared us for what we're facing right now and so it is truly with the greatest joy and gratitude and humility that I share with you in her spark my work and last month. We unveiled a rebranding. We have a new logo and the mission. All of it is just so clear and I was really gifted this clarity. During the last Lions Gate Portal last August. Two thousand eighteen. That's when everything just coalesced into the super clear vision in the apothecary came to be an interesting Sherri came to be and the route. Ruta spiral collective came to be. And we've been working on all of these things and were slated to unveil them in March and then Bam everything kind of went crazy to say the least and so it i. I you know I won't lie. I'm human I was a little Mimi and well damn it. How am I supposed to really leverage this this rebrand and and the route to spiral collective this beautiful offering for my soul? That was wanting to come through at this time. All anyone is focused on is is this this virus and and the fear and the the trauma in this kind of collective inhale and breath retention that I'm experiencing right now and I realized something in me or outside of me. Speaking through me was guiding me really to this moment to having everything be so aligned contained and clear and beautiful for this time right now because this is the work that is needed. We are facing so much uncertainty. There is so much anxiety so much up in the air so many unanswered questions and none of us. None of us knows what anything looks like. We're truly in the middle of a collective rebirth and birth demands surrender. It demands dropping anything that you thought you knew anything. You thought you wanted any plans you thought you had and completely surrendering to the process and allowing it to just be what it will be and that's what we're facing right now together and so enter spark inner spark this soul business of mine that has been with me and I have been the Channel Four for the last Gosh Four and a half years. I am proud to to share with you. What this truly means. So here we go. Inner Spark is so much more than a name. The name of my business right. It's it's has a sexy sound inner spark and it's so much more it's a code. It's a way of living. Each of US carries a unique spark of the divine that animates our vessel and guides our experiences in this lifetime. Losing touch with this essential spark is losing touch with yourself so each of us is a piece of divine consciousness embodied and we are in human body form right but we're not the only examples of consciousness embodied trees animals plants crystals. All of these these things here on Mama Guy Mama. Earth are examples of different forms of embody consciousness. And so this is that thing that moves through all things that animates and in livens and allows us to experience the world with our our tools and faculties afforded to us by whatever form we happen to be wearing. That spark drives our will to animate to create to live. That spark guides us in fuels our devotion and our discipline. It's the animating life force energy of all. It's what allows us to consistently show up for ourselves and our souls purpose for Encarnacion at this time. These times are are interesting. This is certainly a pivotal point in civilization and our timeline in our trajectory so through activating and remembering this spark this inner spark we've returned to our pure original state where we can survive ender to the secret spiral essence of life once more inner sparks sole mission is simple yet profound and permeating inner spark. My work exists to resurrect our collective awareness of and reverence for the sacred spiral principle of existence. And this is done through repairing our relationship with our inner containment our inner authority and devotional discipline. Inner Spark is a container for remembrance activation transformation devotion rising exploration education on Education radical healing reclamation and service. All in the name of love period. Right I said it was simple. I didn't say it was necessarily easy. Everything done through. Inner Spark is in deep devotion and deep service to resurrecting our collective awareness of the sacred spiral principle of life and the cosmos as a whole and this is only done through repairing our relationship with our own inner structure in Earth Authority and containment the spiral in the triangle as discussed in the previous episode episode. Thirty eight are seen in her sparks logo. I had someone tell me it was as though the logo was speaking to them and it is it is the eight pointed symbol surrounding the spiral and triangle are also symbolic of the eight main primordial archetypal frequencies of existence used in her sparks working. That'll be discussed in great detail in an upcoming episode. I'm very excited to get into that. So that logo is is a code in and of itself. I highly encourage you to just kind of look at it and see what comes through for you so inspire is a movement. It's a way of life. It's a collective mission and also literal place for learning and community and courses and the apothecary. Some of inner sparked secret intentions include the following. And I really feel like these could be painted guidelines for all of us as we navigate. The uncharted waters ahead. So while these our inner spark sacred intentions every Invite us all to kind of fuel into where we can incorporate some of these into our own daily life so to hold space for your process through a variety of offerings for you to hear the song of your soul and to spark the remembrance of your divine purpose and sovereignty. Creating that space for you to hear your truth. I will never ever ever pretend to have all the answers. I will never pretend to I. I don't even know what like the image of what's that movie. You made me watch recently the love Guru so Mike Me Watch the love guru and I was watching with him and laughing and also feeling like Oh my God I have such a problem with this kind of space and I don't even really know what to call it but I guess the whole kind of coaching mentoring spiritual teacher space. There's a lot of hypocrisy. There's a lot of guru complexes there's a lot of bullshit and yeah no a lot of inflated egos a lot of absolute truths being claimed and inner spark myself will never do that. I will never pretend to have the answers or to give you step by step instructions or to in any way hijack your experience by creating it for you this is a space in her spark is a space for you to reclaim and remember your own. Inner spark
The Demographic Gaps Between Biden and Sanders
"Talked about the racial gaps earlier between Black voters and Latino voters voters favoring Biden Latino voters favoring sanders generally. There's some interesting gender gaps that we're seeing women favoring Biden Sanders and I think that this young olds gap is a perpetual one in the Democratic primary. I mean Bernie Sanders Much much better with Young voters and I was just as we're sitting here. I'm reading. Some I love it when people transcribe cable. Pundits are saying it's good news for us and apparently David Plus who is Who Was Obama's strategist said? We'll Biden's going to really need to you know. Get a lot of young volunteers in that will be a project for them because it is not I mean he and I think you know talking to their campaign like this in this fall particularly when I was reporting a story and Biden. They were somewhat. You know people that I talked to the campaign chairman. When I talked to him he he was kind of like well. Young voters kind of don't understand that they're relax struggles that happened before and we kinda the pathway for them. There's a certain attitude shift that I think perhaps has to happen within the Biden campaign. Or or you know. Campaigns have tears right. You know what I think that's going to involve a lot of surrogates. I would agree with that. I think this is We're kind of looking at the okay. Boomer election here yeah. I mean we saw in Texas in Dallas last night beto come out on stage and give the final speech of the night. After Biden spoke Beto gave the last speech and was speaking in Spanish and getting much louder applause than Biden had gotten during his speech so I think he is going to rely on characters like that to try to boost youth enthusiasm. We'll see if it works. I think that's right. Claire Stole my answer. Basically to to what I'm looking for age race and gender and ideology are like very clear dividing lines in this race and I would be super curious and I hope we can look into like our voters in the Democratic primary like you know how in Congress ideologically Republicans and Democrats are now more distinct from each other than they have ever been. There used to be a lot of overlap. I wonder if along does demographic fault lines in the Democratic primary. We've seen like a separation between those groups more than in past primaries. Obviously there was some pretty clear full lines in two thousand sixteen. The other thing I just will we will be digging into is to delegate picture this is a race ultimately going to be about delegates some some fairly minor differences and where candidates finished wear could make a big difference in how many delegates they get And so I think that'll that'll be the thing. We'll be digging into over the next couple of days. Hopefully also by the way we'll turn the model back on hopefully sometime midday afternoon tomorrow or something like that and Just as a final update before we leave Mike. It looks like things are trending in the direction that you forecasted right now. According to The New York Times needle there is a seventy one percent chance. That Biden Wins Texas. And they're forecasting just two point margin. There Biden also still looking like he's going to pick up main and of course. Sandra is still doing very well up. Ten points in California. The the the The New York Times does something. I'd love which is a chain translator probabilities into into just a phrase so according to the New York Times as a twelve thirty five. Am on Wednesday. March Fourth Bernie. Sanders is quote. Pretty likely to win. California Biden is quite likely to win Maine and Texas is quote leaning Biden. I usually am not able to distinguish what exactly those three different. You need both you need. I'm saying that they give the end. Ender sort of like a phrase to help people place it. It's almost. It's almost like when I characterized erases at the top of the show. I was looking at the needle. And that's where I was basing this
How Bernie Sanders Shapes the Democratic Party Platform
"Bernie Sanders more than any other twenty twenty candidate has shipped a lot of the policy agenda for Democrats with things like Medicare for all and yes campaign rallies full of enthusiastic supporters very similar to president trump there's a big question swirling around is the Democratic Party the party of Bernie Sanders now for more on this we spoke to Michael crews he's a senior staff writer at politico enders has been talking about things like Medicare for all certainly national universal healthcare for going on fifty years she has as you alluded to ban at odds with the Democratic Party for decades much more than he has been working in concert with the Democratic Party it's remarkable at this point in this fun we'll the primary process his second time running for president that he has over the course of five years really had a huge influence a profound influence on how Democrats right now are running for president he is in as good a position that any of the candidates maybe a better position than any of the candidates to be the nominee and no matter what happens on Tuesday New Hampshire no matter what happens in the coming weeks and months he has ideologically not dictated but certainly had a huge influence on how Democrats are talking about policy proposals how Democrats are running for president at this point definitely in the policy proposes you see it all over the place and even more evidence to that you see it at the you can I'm paying rallies and the grassroots fundraising that he does he touts it very often that to all the contributions they get are very low in dollar I think was eighteen dollars is the last number he was throwing out there the average concierge and things like that and you've been to some of the rallies also where there is that electric feel that I mean sometimes you just don't get it with other candidates you know you sometimes you see like a Joe Biden events and it doesn't seem like there's that much excitement there in this is the primary is right now things will change once it's a general election but tells how that reaction has been locked in people understandably so around the country are just kind of tuning into this process for the most part but it's been going on for a year cost to say the least probably longer than that depending on how you want to start the clock but I've been out and about all over the country is going to rallies and town halls from Iowa to Hampshire the South Carolina at startup and as you say there is a conspicuous difference this is just a statement of fact that generally speaking Bernie Sanders events are much better attended and much more energetic and certainly Joe Biden's events but many of the other candidates to you there was a moment in Iowa toward the end of twenty nineteen what people do judge started to draw it I opening nearly a large crowds he's still doing that in New Hampshire those are the two I mean to the extent that what we saw on Iowa reflected what we eat political observers have been saying for months on the ground it was a pretty accurate representation in some sense in my eyes the two people who have consistently had drawn the biggest most energetic crowds Bernie Sanders and people to judge even that said though she was a little bit different than a booty judge crowd a standards crowds younger Sanders crowd is a little louder a little bit more charged up the level of commitment and devotion to Bernie Sanders I think the media has felt closer to a trump rally than to an event held by any other Democrat obviously it is a huge difference between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump there's a huge difference between a trump rally and a standards rally but it is closer a Sanders rally to a trump rally and Tuesday abide in town hall or clover shark town hall it cetera bi level of may it lead to the ceiling that's been almost more than a sinister looking to make a political decision who should I vote for a level of fan heard that it's just an enjoyable when you go to see Bernie Sanders Nichols in part with some of the things that Bernie talks about you know he's calling for a quote unquote revolution you know he said that many times and people that are joining a revolution have that type of fandom associated with that we're talking about the policies that he's kind of inspired and and things like that but even that the next generation of lawmakers have also been inspired by him and endorsed him Alexander because he'll Cortez comes to mind I think she's stepped in and some of his rallies to be a surrogate and what not and she drives that same type of enthusiasm a lot of times but again kind of in that same model of a Bernie Sanders you may have heard of the trail I think there's a band from young people in particular is for them the importance of Alexander across your Cortez and some of the other so called squad members other young women of color in Congress who have endorsed Bernie Sanders very much on the standards train for those people in particular the young people who are the aspects of quarters of standards their presence is and that in fact this is not just a one man show this is not something that is going to and when Bernie Sanders who is turning seventy nine later this year after all is no longer with us that it can continue that there is this movement of thought and that in the person of a of he who could be Bernie Sanders granddaughter there is a long long runway that hinders supporters certainly see I think the question of course and and an open active question unresolved to me is whether or not Bernie Sanders can win in this primary or can win a general election and whether or not somebody like AMC or the other squad members could win elsewhere in the country beyond their districts whether there is only a broad coast to coast appeal for their movement politics for their quote unquote revolution as opposed to the unifier candidate like if people do judge or even in any costar or even a job I'd and then they obviously is the big question that's what we're going through right now the Democratic Party has been kind of a loss since president Barack Obama left there has not been clear leader but Bernie Sanders as we've been mentioning keeps popping up you know throughout his career is always kind of been a disruptor in that sense but could he be president trump in the election Bernie Sanders is a democratic socialist by his own naming calls himself that and the president trump constantly rails against socialism he did the same the union you know socialism will never ruin health care whatever however he said it and that's gonna be something really tough to be down when there is a large majority of the country that really does like president trump they do feel bad if it's from his administration whether economically or just in the policies that he's put out there and it's gonna be a tough sell for that half of the country on the one hand it's hard to see Bernie Sanders beating Donald Trump on the other hand it was hard to see Donald Trump becoming president in the first place and so I think anybody who makes a statement such certitude that surely Bernie Sanders couldn't win in general election you just shouldn't or can't because I'm in that the rules of politics have been shattered by trump and who the heck knows you know one of the things I tried to point out in this piece is that is there is a track record if you are familiar with or take the time to even learn and some cursory way the long long history of pretty standard there's a track record of winning when he wasn't supposed to in the morning in a particular way which is to say at the expense of the Democratic Party you want to become mayor of Burlington

I reflect back to our first championship in two thousand fourteen Eddie Kray coming up to me before the final round into saying whatever you don't cry you know I have that in the back of my mind and I'm not a big crier anyway but to give your whole life to something to from the time I was eight years old my dad all of the things that him and my parents sacrifice to be able to allow my sister to do what we love for a living and chase are james sacrificing their own so It it's been a really long road in. It's not been easy at all and there have been way more valleys in. There have been peaks tonight. I talk about that all the time but I feel like that story is. What's so important? Is that you just you persevere and you never give up in there so many people that stab you in the back and pull the rug out from underneath you on the way it has nothing to do with gender. Just just how this world works. It's very cut throat and it's very Challenging honestly to To be a part of it but I I love what I do and I love the guys that I get to do it with every week. So I'm honored to be a a three time world champion and represent a sport that I love that. I'm so passionate about. I wouldn't have given twenty eight years of my life for it and everything else that we've sacrifice but the thing that I want to say people in the outside don't understand necessarily what it takes but they don't understand what it takes from you either so follow my guys that sacrificed at time with their kids in their their wives. I it means the world to me so I'm glad that we did this together as a family things that you said you were a kid. Oh my gosh if I could just get one wish what would I always wanted to be a professional race car.

New 3D Printing Extruders Are Coming Your Way
"Time for US talk about Three D. printing again and there are announcements. Well actually they've been announced for a while and hopefully by now we will have some of them of a whole bunch of new extruders souders starting with one which we're GONNA be talking in detail about. I think next time around the time after the zesty nimble they're coming out with their version into and they should have shipped mid December but we all know how dot goes so. Hopefully we have them now. I've ordered three of them for the tool changer. Because the value that they sent me worked so beautifully however I will probably also beginning the second extruder that was announced earlier last year in December actually before December the three D Amirah which was originally called the Hermes. They changed it to Amarah. I wonder what else did a Hermes in three different than could be And and and While the zesty nimble comes with breath Basically just the extruder system and the cable that attached to the stepper the Humira and the next extruder that we're going to mention comes with the stop promoter. Attached the E. Three Homero is Pretty special in that it it customizes the casing of the stepper motor to have within it a dual wheeled a dual Hobday gear extra a feeding system. That has the shortest path from from the gear to the hot end. That I think I've ever seen it's really really interesting. Very very interesting design Kind of a very similar to bonte contact. The both sides of the filament have geared hob gears that are driving it also it has a very interesting heat sink underneath the fan which is designed to drive the air away from the hot end area Very innovative. They put a lot of engineering into do it. We're looking forward to try and get. Unfortunately though in my opinion they use the mid sized stepper motor versus the pancake sized stepper motor odor. Not sure why I need to talk with them more about that. I've heard that they may be coming out with a version with the pancakes is that is the smaller stack. So it's much lighter. Maybe half the weight of the mid sized stepper and in in my experience when I've switched to to these smaller steppers. Yeah the Torque is less but it's still well within tolerance and I save a ton of weight which makes for a much higher quality quality print. So we we will probably be getting a hammer and I'll be shoehorned into one of the tools of the tool changer for comparison sake. Hopefully we'll see how things go in the near future. Yeah what I don't understand about this designers. They're going to all this trouble to make you know there's all these custom parts it's quite expensive. I like the The driving you know the dual driving from both sides but Yeah but they're not the first guys to come up with that but I can sort of justify it. In terms comes of reducing weight you know keeping the parts as minimal as possible and reducing the overall weight of the extruder but then they make a Boden version of it. I don't I understand. I understand why you'd care about the weight. Convert on tech bomb attack has the same thing with the boat and version of the BMG. So possibly they're seeing themselves competing beating with the bond market. Well the bond tech is. That's just that's a really good extruder Yummy do you. Don't care so much about the weight you're looking at the. You know the dual drive live systems and this is a dual drive system. So we're hoping that is at least as good as the bond tech for their sake. It'd better be better be or they're not gonNA sell many on one thing that they like to push that you you just screw in the thermal tubes for any of their extruders I mean. They're they're hot blocks so they're volcano their V six all their different hop block designs. Pathway designs will fit to this. So it's it's pretty versatile for their for the tool we'll change your though The folks he three D have come up with bolt on parts. So that it'll go onto the tool plate however you know that's a lot of weight you've got the stepper motor for this camera. You've got the small stepper motor for the tool control. You've got all the carriages. That may be too much much. Wait for the tool changed your. But we're GONNA find out we're going to testify ourselves and compare it to a tool. That has a zesty nimble on it which only adds like ninety four grams versus nine hundred something grams quite a bit of a difference and then we have a third extruder. That was announced right before Christmas. From the folks at Micro Swiss these folks make some really Nice nozzles and Philemon Thermal tubes they've come up with a design that's a direct replacement for for the CR ten in the ender three basically replaces the entire X. carriage however again the it's a mid sized stepper that's writing in the X. Axis which can be a problem however on these machines you don't print as quickly the Mendel based where the the bed is in the Y axis which is a mental based usually you don't print more than sixty at Mac sixty millimeters unders per second whereas the machines were thinking of usually around eighty millimeters per seconds. Does it make a difference. Time will tell. We'll find out I I don't know I We may explore one of those. I'm my my gut. Tell me again. The zesty nimble may be the better approach. One thing looking at the picture that they have on their website the path distance from the actual geared feeder down into the tube is fairly long and that could become a problem in the heat sink. Looks kind of small tiny heat sink. They have to get the the stepper motor up over the the horizontal Gantry bar so that's why it has to be that far. I would have positioned at forward and reversed it. Yeah you could you could do that But then you're putting in all this weight that's cantilevered out from the the linear motion Crusades off. Yes it can be done. It's just a matter of you. Know Designing Zayn balancing out the different
"enders" Discussed on Published...Or Not
"This is a three CR podcast and this is published or not intersecting lives and intersecting Cultures are at the heart of Crane's Novel Act of Grace and welcome to three C- Thanks for having me I think we should begin by defining Aghanistan and one of the veterans told me about an act of grace and basically it's a compensation payment made by the Australian government to Iraqi civilian or Iraqi family who unintentionally being hurt or harmed or killed by Australian Miller Harry and in fact that leads off this story because you have to that's right and he's bicycling post traumatic stress disorder yes interestingly enough he's picking shrapnel out of his body over the years but he's inadvertently shall we say killed yes yeah unintentional yeah and this thing has dramatized him as the reason for the act of grace but what's interesting then is then Lee's life back in Australia he's gone from a chaotic environment and where does he end up well I mean I don't think when when uh-huh it's often said that when you're in a war it's it's hard to ever label even if even in peacetime in the sense that the drill and then is always edging are you you're always in this hyper vigilant state so to he returns to his young son and his wife and brings that hyper vigilant state with him and yet they end up pin bowling across the bottom of Australia trying to I find an opportunity for him to settle but he works in a chicken eggs briefly he does work in a chicken but I found the paralleling in some ways of the Taos in Iraq and I think there's an equivalent sort of Kale chips well yeah if you ever view a flock of chickens they're actually right unnervingly chaotic and it can actually they can grate on your nerves I think the slaughter the slaughter of them that's right there's a mouse plague is well that's right so reasoning environment he can't control again yeah well I mean it's also that sense of I really really I often think of the George Patil quite in the eyes of the butcher the horse is already dead and you know when you go to a slaughterhouse Yeah you have to understand the butcher's probably already think those creatures that alive and then to draw that parallel we've a wall that is basically and he's a rather prescient analogy given the current host yes dave we then make Roddy so you've I've got a whole range of characters we leave to he story we meet Robbie background and heritage are interesting yeah well they caught mysterious her heritage her father turns out to be off the stolen generation but you know so he can never you never can't claim that because he doesn't have that culture so he's kind of he's one of those in between people you can't be white and can't indigenous and he works in a very privileged he's a he had his the janitor. AH private school and you know finds himself living in a time where it's increasingly fashionable to climb ones Heritage convict door indigenous heritage and pressed upon him by one of the teachers that he should claim his indigenous heritage to the point that he finds wchs about finding his inner totem animal and all those kind of things left in his Laka but what does this well it's a religious instruction teacher for the and how we consider that actually not an act of grace so to speak yeah so I mean that sense of what what does already to is it actually full the person who needs help or is it to make someone feel good in giving so she thinks herself as a very charitable generous woman but ultimately disrespects roby who bravo and her father and and triggers off a real fear I'm just showing how precarious position in society is which is interesting because we're now starting to get a conviction of an idea going through these I parallel stores these parallel lives they doing too sick in otherwise as well you have a Naseem who's an Iraqi from coal it should background pianist yeah but and she in fact does meet Robbie eventually but she's had to descend descent into Kyle's yeah well she's had to survive and that means she's had to do things that are highly unpleasant potentially complicit and criminal and I guess I guess I mean you never really think of these things writing them but I guess sort of to scrutinize the characters in in with the gift of hindsight I guess she's a way of showing the can't you can't have these binary discussions about people that refugees innocent therefore they have to be saved or refugees potentially bad so they shouldn't be sacked I mean refugees a human and in order to survive you have sometimes done unlikable things unlikable and a lot of her pre equipment is brought about by outside forces Cetera. But here's what's interesting then because you do in fact have rowdy and the same meeting and Nissim has been wearing a Nika which is the food covering Robbie tries wearing there's an digits woman who suffered season but these interesting sort of parallel yeah I mean it's funny when you when you do scrutinize the text and looking back on it you go yeah a lot of things going on here but I really was just writing in the moment but roby is quite a bow she brave naive young artist and she's into doing edgy. Projects and one of the edgy projects is to put on the obey which Assim whiz because she wants to experience racism how Nissim on experience it name tells her that she will never be able to understand racism as she feels it but Robbie attempts at nevertheless and it's and to a certain extent she does get a sense of how route one can be traded wearing those kind of things but ultimately comes agrees with Nissim that you can never you can never put on another person's skin but also that that will that notion of skin because Robbie has already she's already yes isn't but it's different it's getting shades of difference in in the white they are persecuted I'm but also then I rob his association with the average community she does not project in central Australia but there's extreme violence when there's the destruction of an annihilation of the camp folks and again he we have a parallel with had the violence in Iraq we've had the violence in a to life in chicken fat violence because astounding ram trading it as a joke and changing crying dogs and and also those that suffer because they owned the dogs vile wants exists everywhere yes it does sound like a compellingly doc book doesn't I promise there are moments of lightness and humor in there the highlight really they sorts of behaviors are not just separated into first world and third world no but can be experienced everywhere yeah and I guess in a way I guess that's why my characters traverse territory beyond the Stralia Today's chapters set in Baghdad and Syria and in North Dakota in America and I I guess that's sort of a way of exploring how our lives have consequences beyond borders now like we're now officially a global paypal and actions have consequences they might not be consequences down the road they might be across oceans will you've you've mentioned overseas as well and Gerry whose to his son is caught up in a demonstration that's right and then we get the violence there as well actually really really like Jerry's journey because he sort of he's he's come out from under the shadow of his his father but he's also he's hooked up with this trio in America radical and they force him to think differently and he has to shake out his basically crackhead open and and rick question everything he's ever learned at school and it's It was fun actually writing that school Louis because his father is suffering from post traumatic stress and so this this ripple effect and had to individuals come through because lobby comes through and it's very uplifting she has a child in the end and such like so there is a as right Positive thread yeah as well yeah but you're you're highlighting how close we are to the edge culturally in the decisions we make in the action Steichen and how in many ways first world countries are not that far from dropping over the edge yeah well I guess so I guess it's always important to remember what how quickly things can full but it seems you know the motto of the school was Annuity correctness which I found interesting providence favors our undertaking now it's on the back of the American Bank note we perhaps suggesting something there scene I guess I was sort of playing on what is sort of seems to be the motto of the Morrison Government in a sense that this idea of of religion is all this idea of morality is if you put in you'll get something and this idea as opposed to if I think true Christianity I don't think Jesus would necessarily be that kind of guy but the new version of Christianity is well if you're oblige we're going to walk past you or you've brought this on yourself and I guess that's kind of I guess I did use that last motto her private school because of course of course it's GonNa Save ratledge ready and therefore the expectation is there winging do whatever we like I mean societies taking that attitude this will matt I and yet became very punitive the undercurrent is the wants that we sort of think is only happening in Iraq or Syria is over there yes it's within our own communities and there's violence in not in neon said there's all different types of violence so lastly then we've got a minute or two the structure of this Nolan the intersection of these us we're not necessarily following one individual all the way through or one narrative that sort of four different characters and four narratives and I think seemingly for the first four chapters they're quite stand alone and naked be saved almost short stories and then I start to cross into each other's lives lives and again that wasn't something I'd planned it was sort of accidental characters kept turning up in the wrong story and then I realized they you know those kind of things can happen in the real world consequences can trickle we'll have a trickle down effect which makes in fact for interesting reading as you wonder then what these connections what will be revealed and there are in fact connections between two hundred and the seem therefore Cassim Robbie to Jerry which snap a father son but yet they all even Robin Jerry have a brief very brief moment data yes finding that connection is interesting when when I guess older interactions economy acts of rice in themselves and questionable acts of grace in terms of what we can do for each other whenever we meet in advertently that's right so what is the true act of grace a pilot because money fixes all more the cherry eighty and kindness we shy to each other that's sort of an interesting look at the the intersection of lives and the characters there so I've been interviewing crane it's your first by first novel yes you've had essays and other that's right previously that's how this is your first novel and therefore an interesting look at the novel form in many ways which would be interesting act of grace and a crane and it's from blacking books and thank you for coming in thank you so much David thank you well David have you read James Joyce's novel a portrait of the artist Z. Young men or should be sure I thought might have its main character tells about growing up and finally as a young artist setting off into the world to pursue his art well today I've got author into Bash Gun and he's told his story in a portrait of Alles as a young man welcome in indepth thanks Jen and first time into and manner of being here into three see ya now Andrew is the main character up but it's not about becoming an artist the you want to pursue what is it I don't know I think it's a writer awesome so let's get back to a bit of a knowledge of you you're an Australian but culturally linked to another country yes My parents were born in Turkey they came out here as teenagers in the light sixties early seventies I was born in the middle of the eight he's here in Melbourne and I grew up in Tele Moraine than in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and if being back to yeah I as a kid we never went back for one reason or another a when I hit my twenties went back with my mom I and then I went back doc in my light to twenty s and that was kind of turning point for me a pivotal event did feel like harm in some ways yes in some ways in some ways no people talking Turkish on the streets and could blend into a crowd and just listen to people speaking that secret language that I had as a child well you have uncles aunts and cousins all living here in Melbourne have any of them traveled extensively really going back to Turkey and not so much I think you know we would as kids with go camping being together those families or take caravan but I think what you're getting at Janice that yes we just get in a car and drive into the desert no it's you and whom it's me it's my partner Sophie it's my very good friend Gabriel and Sophian my unborn child let's let and that's from page to this end the baskin writing it says he she carries her unborn child six months in utera sitting for hours on end the body aches yet I see in her Akam she pace when she is traveling that is to say she is most herself as we shoot north freckles across her nose and cheeks emerged from southern winter hibernation it's lovely Sir the three of you get to Cooper PD and I'm going to quote just one short sentence Kapiti sunset on a mound of rejected earth sums it up you you want that impressed with Kapiti and then onto alert and this was before the climbing ban felt very strongly about just how wrong it was yes so this was before the announced moment that the climate would close down and attend a lot of friends people in my community talking about the climb I think it'd become more of a police Geico kind of hot potato by that point and I got to experience it firsthand I tried not to be judgmental I tried to be open minded the journey had the effect of tender ising our hearts and minds so why was a springs who'd chosen final the nation Actually Gabriel and I applied for a writing slash artist residency there we didn't end up getting into that residency we thought we'd with Donald is planning so we thought we'd go anyway and as it turns out.

Move To Pull Consumer Protection Rule Heightens Debate Over Payday Lending

Come from almond board of California, did, you know almond orchards bloom before most other plants and help honeybee hives grow stronger before they pollinate other late blooming crops, grow what you know at almondsustainability dot org. Some people rely on borrowing money from themselves you get a payday loan. It's cash you promised to pay back when your next paycheck arrives. The Trump administration has been scaling back in force -ment of this industry and Kathy creditor who runs the consumer financial protection bureau will likely be asked why when she testifies before a house panel today, here's NPR's Daniel Chesler. Oh. This is the sound of a payday loan cash. You can get quickly just by walking into a store, I met this Springfield Virginia branch of advance America during a rainy lunch hour and a woman who works as a medical assistant comes in. I borrow three hundred interest is seventy three dollars. Angela who asked us to only use her first name to protect her privacy is getting a thirty day loan to cover a family trip to New York. She says she prefers payday loan because she doesn't trust herself with credit cards. It's convenient and quick all Angela had to do a show her ID and write a check for the day the loan was due. She brought in a Bank statement and a pay stub to get her first loan, but she's taken out a few since then about two a year, we provide consumers from all across the country with the ability to access money when they need it. Most the very model of the loan is batik out as much money from the bars Bank account until that inevitable default. That's the industry view from Jamie Fulmer. At advance America, which has nine thousand nine hundred payday lending branches. And a critical perspective from Scott Astrada the center for responsible lending, a consumer advocacy group. And this is the heart of the debate behind a rule drawn up under the Obama administration that never took effect. The rule would require payday lenders to make sure borrowers are able to repay their loans. Angela is confident she can pay this loan back. Even though the interest rate works out to three hundred percent over the course of a year. The CFP be researched this issue in a two thousand fourteen report it found half of all payday loans are in a sequence at least ten loans long with spiraling costs to borrowers. And that's why the bureau created the rule under former director Richard cordray. He says the agency's mission has changed the new leadership at the see of PB has been much less aggressive about doing things that press hard on the industry to change in ways that help consumers Democrats to control. Of the house, and they oppose rescinding this payday loan rule. Consumer advocates say the rule is vital. So to veterans groups the N W C P says quote, payday lenders have long preyed upon communities of color, but Quinn Trung who served as deputy general counsel at the CFP ender. Obama says banks have tighter criteria than other lenders for small dollar amounts sometimes borrowers. Don't have good enough credit to qualify for credit cards under the current rules. She says there's the possibility that some segments of the population don't have very good alternatives to the payday product. She says the rule would have posed an existential threat to the industry and some lenders had already shut down. Intimidating the impact. Angela the borrower. I spoke to says she's grateful the rule may not take affect I'm happy. They have this. I can actually get alone and be able to pay them back easily in have extra money with the little bit of interest. But is able to pay it back. She's actually pays. Loans back early to save on interest. But payday lenders in most states don't offer discounts for customers who pay early and the CFP CFP's own research shows, many borrowers get trapped by debt with no change in regulation that will continue to be a problem.
