"Literally scared me as a little kid. I've gone back and watch the commercials. Since then and i'm like there's nothing really scary about this but made it freaked me out all these people just like you know mandy patinkin kind of burst into the crowds. You and i'm like oh my god. What is this thing. Hey veto visa the vita of anytime. Left with something as musician that i enjoy. I'm right back. And that's why i asked hot of the matter. Bad back at some like madness like it's like argentina and the bat the bat. You're just like oh my god. It just feels like it's to me. It's a musical assault with a few songs between the are worthwhile. Like why can't stand those supposed Teves that The speak singing that turns it into an opera. Unfortunately it's all over the place. I read somewhere like they were attracted to it because was like oh we do tangos the rhythms of argentina. But a couple of those. And there's like straight up like seventy soft rock sax solos and the like synthesizers in like all that saxo then with a tango last you were really sad about something in you grab department. Slow danced tuesday of the movie. Is these these couples doing a sad crying tango. I'm like what is that. Well you know. Not since the pandemic but before then socially distance yeah it just made me so sad though thinking about this. And i thought like and before i move out i enjoy the music for this. I really like this. But i completely respect your guys opinions. I was so sad thinking about theater in live theater. And i'm sure you know this pain. Paul which is just like man the good old days when we go to live theater and see performances and experienced that with an audience. You know there have been revivals of evita. In recent years you talked about the ricky martin one there are other ones. There are still or used to be local community theaters. High schools people putting on musicals and i was tempted to look up. Like is a vida playing anywhere in michigan. No nothing no. Nothing is playing. It's it's so sad this whole month. We're gonna be talking about musicals and yeah. This is a very different musical than say like a blues brother's which is a different type of but nobody's putting on hair hued musicals right now because that's what we need right now. Mike lester remember in and bring them back as soon as humanly possibly can but right now. That's all we're left with is film. So i just did a you know we. We shut down We we were seven weeks into an eight week rehearsal period for the The musical the pajama game. And i just finished after now. Eleven months of working on it in rehearsing it. We did it. Virtually really difficult and left about eighty percent of the choreography on the cutting room floor. Because we can't get together and dance you know we still did what we could with it but To be able to pull something virtually is not theater. it's film. oh but it's sad when the live theater dies this is the perfect time for fossey. 'cause you can still do jazz. Hands on zoom. I think you can do a pretty good cellblock. Tango over zoom. I just feel like it's the classic middle brow bio pic the classic middle brow. Oskar baid Classic middle brow broadway adaptation. It reminds me quite. It's the lamest twenty twelve ninety six like it was a big deal at the time and within like with a year of space. You know like actually. It's not doesn't have the lows the low lows of les miz. But i feel like if. I were to watch when i actually prefer les miz because it as it leaves more of a taste i guess evita just didn't stick so disappointing when they take something amazing. Somebody like mike white loved evita and then do such a disservice. Just the same way lowly. Ms movie did i miss so excited about coming out then. I wanted to myself twice in the theater in the second time i knew when i needed to go to the bathroom during bring him home so i wish that we'd been able to see again the stage version of that. Give me the hugh jackman stage adaptation. Gimme hugh jackman boy from us. I would love to see the stage play boy from oz with him in it. I think ms and vida both kind of fail the same way as movies. They were filmed realistically like maybe. This isn't a maybe. This isn't the right material for realism. Maybe it's just not a really good point going back to jesus christ superstar in the desert but they had fucking tanks show up in that movie. That may no fucking sense for a period accurate portrayal but it works for a movie. Carl douglas being chased around by tanks in the desert guys with shiny military helmets. It's one thousand nine hundred seventy movie. It's perfect for it all right. Let's go ahead and take another break and we're gonna play preview for next week. Show let the sun shined in Bit a tall trees into the old these better. Gotcha saw you easy to be easy to the who let the sunshine in hair the film. That's right we'll be continuing musical month next week with a look at mueller's foreman's hair until then i think my co host. Paul todd. todd what has been keeping you busy sir. I continue.

"Blame. But not you've got that song and then you've got her also singing another suitcase in another hall. Which is the flip side of the. I'm the depose mistress and it's like no no you are one or you're the other in this. You're not both can't have you be the schemer and plotter and climb your way up the social ladder and just doing whatever the fuck you need to do. In order to get from you know the the dancehalls the radio to the movies to peron's mistress. Fuck everything else. I'm climbing my way to the top await. No let's feel sad for her. Know if i can if i can make small confession. I don't think. I really like the music to a vita. Like not really any i get. I get jesus christ superstar phantom. Evita does not really do much for me. It's kind of don't cry from argentina kinda always left me cold. And if if. I don't get that one. I'm not going to get the the musical but a lot of it also. I think i feel comfortable. Saying is just straight bad. Like the i wanna be a part of be bad or mad bad that with a little bad with be a. I wanted to be apple. Yes i have a confession. The for whatever fucking reason when they had the like broadway in detroit version of this the the touring version. They would advertise evita during saturday. Morning cartoons. One little mike white was sitting round. Riverview michigan watching cartoons. Just waiting for the next one to come on. They would have this commercial and it was just start off with all these people doing the supposed to want to my mad. That's right evita's stamp your feet and clap your hands. You got a lot to celebrate. Seven tony awards including best musical evita argentina's including queen overnight saint and only a few seems to notice. She simply said used. A country took a literally.

"The tango singer and then when mogole these things is next line in the musical it is horrible. He's got a whole like he's got a good voice but he also plays it up. He's camp those who have the glass and that need to make just like holy shit. This guy's like good like there's a reason why he's playing in who need and he's not in buenos aires is just like the audience here sitting on their hands and i'm just like yeah no you know when when one's like face the facts they don't like your act. It's like yeah no. He's not that good but she sees him as a vehicle to get out. And i'm laughing at mugabe and in this. I'm just like i'm not laughing at goal. The in all he's got a family you should be sad doesn't feel like it's earned. I had no sense of this guy's supposed to be a camp figure in any way. This is really a big surprise to me. Mind blown nike. Just describe an obvious difference between a stage play and a film. I mean you guys are center files. I'm not i mean. Does that often happen. Someone takes out the laugh space in that we keep this barrages. I'm calling to through composed piece is. Don't stop the lap because we gotta keep the music you know. I think it's interesting to from from my will blood perspective. I've seen chicago on stage and there are some jokes on there that you know they had a you can tell they had to cut. Because i wouldn't really play in a on a screen but like chicago. The movie is still very funny and evita. The movie is not funny at all. No and this weird lines that they change like. And i don't know when they changed them like again. I'm not that familiar with the concept album versus the phone recording. So things like and i just watched a taped version of evita and it might have been the two thousand ten performance. I'm not sure. I didn't recognize the performers. I did notice that the wind amused too. Which is who could ever get kicked in the back of the sticks. That's their and that's on the opponent album. But then i watch the movie and its who could ever be fond of the back of beyond and again talking about that whole. I'm used to this. I'm not used to that as soon as she says who could ever be fond of the back of beyond him just like no. That's wrong that's it. And i just want to check out of the whole fucking movie and it's just like am i being way over sensitive. I don't think so. Because it's just like i can't say like you have to be one hundred percent. I'm book you always have to do this. It's like it's their movie. That can do what they want. But then they're stupid. Little changes like that where i'm just like. Why did you change that. Why is that there. And now i have to pull myself back into the movie. That changes for the worse that i think that's kind of emblematic of what this movie is trying to do. It's very ouden oscar beatty. I guess that's what i'm going for. Oscar baiting very middle-brow. All very like if you're gonna cast madonna madonna the scandal ridden icon of our time. Like you've gotta play that up. I this is. I think talking me into liking this movie lesson lesson. I didn't come near with a very high opinion. i think it comes back to capitalism nine. You talk about the history when we did this deep dive into it of you. Whether it was a concept album than it went to broadway on the late seventies early eighties. Broadway was great for performers and musicians to to hone their craft in their skills but movies is what made money right now. We have amilton now. We have you know. Big million dollar things happening on broadway then become film or go to net flix or disney plus as inside. I think it's different. It was a different time. You know and i think we see the switch right from the eighties into ninety six when films were. i think. There's definitely a fight happening here between the filmmaker. And the composer's if feels like madonna is fighting with the material doesn't feel like it's girl thank you i know. She got a lot of vocal training to get into this and to to do this role and there are times where yes. They won't tone things down the bring it down quite a bit. It's down your pitch. It down ellen page to the pounder. Octave range was just huge. And when we get into things. Like i've seen videos we're they'll talk about. I think it's when is a song when you get to that. Line star quality. And how locos madonna luckily can get low enough to to say star quality and get down there but there are some singers like a some performances. I've been to One that was down. I think at the masonic temple here in detroit and when you get to that line. The singer could not sing. It is far as my concept goes. So instead you get down there and two ago star quality and i'm like oh no that's not how the song i mean madonna got there but that doesn't mean gee that doesn't necessarily mean it worked well. She couldn't go hi. she couldn't do. The you know the screw. The middle classes stuff was way toned down and just also her denim was toned down. Like you know ev- hated the middle classes because the kept away from her father's funeral and we really play on that father's funeral things. Something that is talked about in the musical but not seen. So the filmmakers did the right thing. They showed more than they could. You know talk about. This is not a musical. This is a movie so we're going to show some things that we couldn't show on stage. We're not gonna have. We're not gonna hire a little girl to pretend to try to get into this funeral. Yada yada will go to that but it felt like the venom of i hate the middle classes because it kept me out of my father's funeral like that whole my father's family was middle class like that whole thing now. We're just gonna play that down quite a bit. Alan parker directed the wall. I feel like the wall approaches. What this movie kind of needed. Because like i said madonna year castro entirely for her star power her celebrity iconic nece. It does not really come across. This is a movie about person. Not nikon is what i feel like. I feel like the only movie she was ever in. That really captured. That star quality was dick tracy comic with movie. 'cause he's not like she's she's no oscar winner. Let let's say like so if you're gonna castor you gotta play her up and this movie does not play her up. Big film convention right the giant audience scenes. Oh yeah erie costumes and wanted really really badly to be an epic right. It wanted you know and it kept repeating like. Here's all the all the butchers right now. All the butcher. This ad is on the butchers now. They're all really happy. Here's all the butchers another protesting so like my back seems again and again and again to say we can all these people so the i don't know in football they call the the audience of one hundred thousand people. The twelfth man of the eleven players on it felt like the you know the middle class was somehow that twelve cast member but was their voice..

"Welcome to the projection booth. I mean know. Mike white you enemy is the one and the only palm out. I came from the people. They need to adore me so christian. Dior me from my head to my toes and also joining us as mr todd nathanson. I so what happens now on this episode. we're looking at the nineteen ninety six film from director. Alan parker evita back on the stage musical by andrew. Lloyd webber and tim rice. It is the story of eva. Duarte a girl from the backwaters of argentina. Who makes her way to buenos outta is climbing the social ladder until she ends up with. Colonel one perron who soon becomes the country's fascist dictator will be discussing the film the musical and a lot of other things along the way. If you haven't seen a vida in don't want to ruin for you while please turn off the podcast and comeback. After you have we will still be here support on curious. What is your history with evita. Thank you so much for having me today. I am an opera singer by trade saying if the new york city opera for several years in vietnam was one of the first musical like full-blown fully staged productions. I ever saw. It's right around the same time. You and i met mike at the university of michigan and i think randomly might have gotten a coupla comp tickets. It was at the power center in ann arbor michigan and i took my sister and her best friend heather into this day. You know i'm forty eight. And they're both forty six or so. It really moved us so it really took us by storm. Hit us and this is what five years ninety one or ninety right before before the movie right so the stage production hit us in my like i call it my nascent or my pre musician days. Something about the power and and obviously the drama of the stage production hit us and i remember. My sister ran out and bought the album. And but she wasn't a music file or the file or any file your all but you know it just hit as small town kids from the midwest. Something really struck a chord for all three of us. And how about you todd. I did a a web series a few years ago called cinema donna where i reviewed all of madonna's movies. I'm not much of a theater person so that was my first just a couple of years ago. It was my first viewing of evita. The movie our interaction would much danger lloyd webber at all really the watching the I certainly remember it. Being big ninety six Immediately kind of faded from the conversation. Since then i have seen more andrew webber stuff and i think i get it a little more now or at least i get what it was trying to do but i cannot say paul's experience with a you know adoring patti lupone or whatever your phone but let me also be frankly down. Primarily director plays musicals and in a voice teacher myself. I have not yet had the pleasure or the privilege to direct and produce vita but i did produce a giant production of joseph in the amazing technicolor dreamcoat and a big russian phantom of the opera both at southwestern michigan college huge successes people love them people of them that said The conventions of all of them have a lot of things that come with evita. So i'm excited to talk about different things. I've seen a few android wherever things but actually live performances that i was in the audience for the only one. I have seen a touring production of the opera and that strikes. Me as fairly atypical of the lloyd webber tannin. I guess because it's very playful with a beginning a middle and end whereas evita jesus christ superstar and cats. Don't strike me that same kind of way. Even though you have pretty much the ultimate end for jesus christ superstar and evita that they both die and they both die when they're thirty three and both of their corpses go missing which is interesting. That's true while they're like one after the other right. Jesus christ superstar that evita. Yes i didn't think of it that way. I was just thinking structurally but yes. That actually makes a lot of sense and with both of the albums. They're both double albums. And when it comes to that fourth side. I usually kind of stay away from them. Because i love how joyous the first three sides are and you get to that last side and it's like you know jesus dies for so long. I mean that song of him in that's air quotes for the listeners. That song of him dying. Just like okay yeah. I don't really need to hear this. Like i sure i'd love karl anderson or he starts singing. Jesus christ superstar. But when jesus was up on the cross is like alright. That's enough for me. I'm checking out going to last for three days and three nights. I really don't need that. I'd rather look on the bright side of life well played. There's a movie with an ending my first time seeing Vida was a local area production. I think was somewhere down near like flat. Rock or something in michigan river rouge somewhere anyway. It was actually a friend of mine was in a local stage version and he was not any of the main characters one of the member of the chorus and for me. He was the shorter hours sky. Moment where everybody comes and they start singing about what they want and he was the guy who came on and said just kept teasing him about that completely like they should have made the whole musical about the shorter hours guy or that he should have held that note for like five minutes and been like that opera singer in the bugs bunny cartoon exactly the and then he leaves in the gloves still there and he starts turning all the different colors so that was my first time with that and actually i saw another production of evita also local theater. I think we were traveling somewhere to the west side of the.

On the twenty third you can now play it as early as the nineteen heath four days early access downloadable content persona legacy. Gm and all out attack pack that digital soundtrack of forty songs bricks in the digital behind the scenes video. But what do you guys think about that.

Only you know they've got percent of four golden and console players have evita do not but now they four days early. I've excuse me my throat's gone crazy.

Iota still a threat after killing dozens in Central America
"A set of devastating hurricanes have pummeled central america on november third hurricane bertha. I struck nicaragua and then made its way through honduras in guatemala. According to the red cross more than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane and then this week another hurricane hurricane iota made landfall in central america delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in central america but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covid nineteen joining us. Now to talk about what's happening on the ground is jeff ernst a freelance journalists base in honduras. Jeff thanks for being with us after having me. So what are conditions on the ground in honduras right now right now. Much of honduras is is underwater Particularly in the northwest soula valley region which is home to about two million people and putting the second largest in honduras and pedro soula as really the motor of of the country. So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging is given that roughly forty percent of the gdp or more is produced in this region but really After i iota we have much of a widespread damage Across the whole country was a much larger storm so just particularly crest the north coast and the west. They're still a rising waters. Some parts We've last a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure and as many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck nicaragua before going through honduras and guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries with evita it. It was damaging but it went through a pretty lowly populated area of nicaragua but iota so much larger that it really hit harder in nicaragua. And even the wins were harder to so nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital of managua and south of it so nicaragua's pretty devastated this point. You you've been reporting on This region in honduras for awhile have. How have the government's responded to effort on the ground. The the government's response has been heavily criticised ahead of eight to actually scheduled the special holiday for that week. In order to try to promote domestic tourism and and stimulate the economy which has been really hit hard by the covid nineteen pandemic and there was a clear reticence by the government to cancel that vacation and so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders which led to tens of thousands of people completely caught off guard been and then ended up getting trapped on the roads some for as many as five days and of course that led to more deaths which we really don't know how much yet because the water was never even able to fully recede from eight to before we got hit by iota So there's really some clear negligence by the government here and then with in terms of responding. They're they're completely overwhelmed By it and a complete clearly unprepared and missouri question of how they're spending the resources government just a year ago or just from israel this for war that really has has seen of her for country like and yet they're emergency response. Units doesn't have the votes necessary to be able to deal with the strong currents that we're seen from the flooding in order to rescue people in until the water gets down. Do people are very upset. Definitely more than ever with the government and and this could definitely to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability could also spur more Migration out of the region is that right coming towards A whether that's the united states are moving towards mexico or other places as people try to survive absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans That looks like they're planning for january most of them Whether or not that materializes There's just no doubt. We're going to see an uptick in migration over the next year particularly as covy nineteen travel restrictions are eased You know. I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help to their families to rebuild and recoup everything. They've lost the united states government. has limited at least under the trump administration migration from many of these countries at the same time it's ass many central american countries to help it with its asylum policies Has the us. Government sent any aid to these countries as they struggle to deal with the blows from these hurricanes the lack of leadership from the us Following these crisis is really shocking. There's been no word from the state department or from the white house other than us aid which is down here. Most recently after i iota they designated seventeen million dollars through the region half of which is going to honduras and then also the. Us military base. Don't here has been a source of of rescue missions which has definitely been very helpful but seventeen million dollars when we're talking about billions and billions dollars damage and really in nine hundred ninety eight when hurricane mitch hit which was the worst natural disaster in central america to date it was. Us leadership that mobilized support from the global community and that is completely lacking at this point. president-elect biden has expressed is concerned and support for the region. So there's hope that when he takes office he will take that traditional leadership role of the. Us to help one of its neighbors. I'll be watching to see how this pans out.

Recording police brutality: how technology is driving the new civil rights movement
"Hey everybody seemingly from the verge cast really special interview episode this week yesterday the verge published feature package where calling capturing the police which was a months-long effort for almost everybody at the site to really interrogate the role of technology in the movement against police violence. The heart of the package is a feature where we talk to. People who had filmed the somewhat viral videos of police violence asking him why they did it. What happened next how they felt in the moment whether they would do it again, really contextualising these that we've seen over and over and over again we estimate videos. One is about a specific incidents with a specific set of men in Baytown Texas who filmed police violence and what happened next another one from the science team is about body cameras and police body cameras, and how they affect your perception. What's going on in some academic research that's come out about that. So I asked verge reporter, Steven and verge video producer, my calf, the two leaders of the site wide project To come on, say talk to me about the project what they learned in. Really I, keep thinking about this, the role that our phones are playing in changing our relationship to the and the government. I don't think any product manager or designer at a smartphone company ever thought that their products will be used in this way or create this moment. This is the direct intersection of technology and culture, which is something the virtuous. Investigate. So this is a really great conversation with John and Maria and a really big project. We're very proud of it that'd be read. Watch it here are John and Maria. Maria Abdul. John Steven Welcome to the virtuous easy doing well I. I'm doing great another beautiful day in. Quarantine Mario. How are you? I'm good. I'm very relieved that this really big thing that we have produced is out there. So now I get to. Take back and reflect de. So Youtube or the editorial leaders have big projects that four I would say two months we just called the police project I. Hope Everybody can see it on site. We're very proud of it in scope it looks at how people have been using technology to record the police record police behavior protests use technology and the tools to organizers protests to organize. The movement around police brutality, and then a lot of how those cameras in particular affect our relationship with the police. So it was a huge project and it looks like one big feature, a bunch of. Additional reports around that feature in two videos that my help produce. Let's start with where it came from. How did this project begin in? How did it take the shape that it ended up being on the site? That is very, very good question because. It was sort of such a big undertaking. We it started in a very different direction than it ended as I think a lot of large projects generally tend to. So it started with an idea, a sort of idea in the staff, one of our executive editor was like we should do something to capture the moment then it sort of fell on me to shape that idea. Which is, which is interesting sort of problem because I was very interested in. Working with the initial iteration of the of the project, but getting a chance to shape it meant that I had to think critically about sort of what what would fit the moment and what would capture the moment. Well, I would say so that's how we came came up with the idea of focusing on the people filming videos of police brutality because it felt like there was a section missing to the narrative that was Benjamin. Circulating around social media, which is to say, we don't really hear from those people like we hear a lot from from victims we hear from police officers, but we don't really hear from people who like the everyday people who are sort of in the line of fire and decide to make the very brave decision to pick up their phones and record and sh like shine light like shed light. On on this type of violence that really sort of goes undocumented because one of the things we police finances, it never really shows up police reports. Yeah. One thing that caught me is I say this a lot but this is a new way of using phones that fundamentally what's happening with with all of these if you look at our feature, we started at very intentionally with Rodney King. George holiday that the person who shot the Rodney King beating in the nineties using gigantic Sony eight millimeter cassette handicap which basically no one had those like some families WanNa had those. But the the that camera was present at that moment in time at one am on that corner to witness that thing was astoundingly improbable and as we've come to now, the presence of cameras is actually more likely than not in just the way people live their lives and so the decision to record seems at once. Easy simple. Everyone has a camera. It seems likely that everything will be recorded, but it also turns out to have dramatic consequences. Yeah. Yeah. I think one of the main threads which will I'm sure get into later is a lot of these people felt afraid of retaliation from the police because they posted on social media they sort of were indentifying themselves as targets, Samara and you pretty. Videos here how how did you pick the two together the verge video team did want in the verge science team did one how do we land in those two? So. At the first video and Ben Evita's. I initially saw the video on this very large like database of other videos, police brutality that had been collected, and that was being shared on twitter that we were using that we were looking through for this project, and when I first saw the video I serve noted it as something worthy. But because it had, it didn't happen at a protest. It wasn't the the video that I thought I was going to focus on but after just Justin Callum did the interview with Isaiah for the peace reporters feature in. Told me after he published the video, there had been an increased police surveillance in his life and that he was feeling a lot of anxiety and a Lotta paranoia since he published video. It just really struck me that he still even with all of the sphere and all this anxiety and what was happening he still wanted to talk to us because he had told Justin that he was interested in being part of the video project and so as soon as she told me that I spoke to him and as we sort of spoke, it was just. So clear that he understood the magnitude of recording and he understood the consequences that comes with it and yet still wanted to bring awareness to not only this moment but also what happens when you record the police? So that's how we landed on that video. So our second video on the role of body cams and capturing police brutality fell imperative that we would cover. It in that way given that it's not only bystander footage that is coming out of these recent protests. It's also a lot of body CAM footage in. So we thought it was important and imperative, and that verge science team thought it was imperative to also cover the role of camps and capturing police brutality, but also how they might actually influence how we perceive police. Violence. So it just added a different layer and a different impact to this larger piece. One thing that caught me about that and Addie has report that just is really stuck with me as we went through the project about how all these videos of protests and police violence are becoming a genre film, and as I read that and I watched the body cam video. It just occurred to me that we actually have to use of the formal language of film to describe what's happening here that the body cam is telling the story because it's one kind of camera it shows you one kind of it has a gaze and all these other cameras have another kind of perspective in it. I. Don't think we ever think about that as these videos is having maybe like that formal connection between what the cameras are doing and what you is the viewer perceived and that to me has been a very powerful through line of this whole project. Actually cameras are active participants in these stories and they shape the narrative. The same way that we we know this in every other situation where there's cameras camera shape the narrative, and they leave things out in a enhance other things and that to me I think there's going to be a big long cultural reckoning over the role of cameras in these moments because we don't really understand how that affects our blazing to the culture to the police to the state, and it's changing because the. Cameras Right now I mean it is ironic a little bit that this genre films started in Los Angeles. Well, that's the most cameras right and it's I mean like you know if you think about it that way it's like it makes sense that like Rodney, King beating was filmed by a person in Los Angeles and maybe not elsewhere but also I, think I think it's interesting that you bring up peace because i. I do think filmmakers understand this. And it is also I mean to to get not conspiratorial but to go a little bit off the rails which I still think it's in line but. The US government spends a not insignificant amount of money advising film makers were making films about the police and the military, and they do get some of these editorial. Editorial. Control some of the stuff. and. I think that perspective does shape the way that we see some of these institutions. Which is why I think it's very powerful that. People on the ground filming and they're making their own narratives about these institutions in real time. So let's start there. That's the that's the big feature. That's the piece reporters. It's eleven interviews with people who film police violence. I want to just immediately atop credit or creative director William troll and the engineer from the box media team Adler who built this thing it is beautiful is quite an experience to go through it. But the stories are actually of course, the most powerful thing. John, tell me about one thing you said to me at the very beginning of this project was this is the same story over and over again? Yes. And there's something about the volume of it that I think really brings it home feature came together and tell me hey, came to that realization and tell us what that story actually is. Yeah. So we interviewed a lot of people that was that was the hard part. One of the hardest parts of the projects was finding people who actually wanted to talk to us but I think we were using Greg sets list on twitter to find some of these people Shasta Greg I did actually interview him for. The you know that's a separate thing but yeah, I think I mean I. Think it's very it's interesting right because through these videos like they all have the same, the same beginning middle and end and. It's once you've see enough of them. It's very it's becomes predictable where the rising action in the falling action isn't purely film criticism terms I. Think the reason that we decided to go this route was because it adds context experience police violence like it's one of the things that like it really gives depth to what's going on and it's stuff that you don't normally see and the idea was to bring that sort of reality. Home to people reading, which is why the reason it's the same story every time and the reason that it's sort of like it was distracting actually at the beginning because I was like, okay, this is a different place. This is a different time. These are different people, but like chronicling the experience effective people in the same way, and that's why it was the same story every time because it's not every day that you see. Somebody who is like an officer? Who's who has sworn an oath to protect the public, just beating the shit out of. A peaceful protester and I think it's one of those things it sort of jars you out of complacency and I think for a lot of the people that we spoke to the interviews it seemed like these people were very sort of Shell. Shocked. They sort of knew the extent of the problem but a lot of them were just normal people who happen to be a protest and happened to be filming when stuff went down and so it was very strange reading these these. Reports from the ground like these eleven fourteen over and over again because. One of the reasons I think that it's important that we have the dateline like when it happened where it happened and like you know how many shares or whatever it, the the videos got was because it, it gave back some necessary context because again, if you're if you're reading this stuff in a vacuum if you're just reading reports. From. People who filmed the stuff it really does get eerily similar in for whatever it's worth videos are almost all at night. If they're usually chaotic and they all feel like are happening same place. Yeah. It's really strange and maybe they are I mean at least psychically speaking right like it's it is the same sort of mental place I think yeah and that was one of the notes as we were putting the thing together that we got from our editors was this we have to return some sense of place to it. So we we added that back in as you were kind of editing each of these individual vignettes. was there a theme that that really came out from each of the people? Was it? What what strikes me as as I watch all these videos there's just everyone has a phone out. Right like all the time it just seems like this instinct to have your phone out that to me is new. That's yeah. That's not how people thought ten years ago or twenty years ago I really do think that's in large part because of the power of social media because again, like the thing about social media, people dismiss it out of hand as like a bad and toxic place which a lot of the time it is like don't get me wrong. However, it is one of the only avenues for social change for people who are marginalized like it's a place where you can go to be heard. By by the institutions who would normally just have the power to ignore you and I think like police violence is one of those things where it is like it is sort of an abuse of power, right? It's one of these. It's like something that it won't show up on an incident report somebody like a cop like using their baton on a protester but if somebody films that and films like the circumstances where it where it happened how it happened like you you you you get a sense of whether or not this was justified and I think. A lot of the Times it's not and a lot of the Times that goes on reported and I think. People have seen that you can actually like get some measure of justice from these otherwise unaccountable institutions by sharing the stuff on social media because public pressure is still a thing and it's interesting that to go back to Isaiah Ben Evita's. He has video that officer fired like his him posting the video actually made a change at the very local level. In his town and I think I think that's a really important thing and I, that's that's sort of what's driving this stuff because again, institutions like the police were previously entirely unaccountable to the public. Mario I mean you, you are yourself filmmaker you talked to Isaiah how do you? How do you take that? That everyone is just instinctively pulling out their phone because they think it will lead to some some change down the road. I think what's interesting about Isiah specifically is that this video doesn't take place at a protest it. He was filming outside of a convenience store they were coming from a barbecue. They hadn't gone to protests recently, they were the at that moment they weren't planning necessarily planning on going to protest later that week however. In as the video begins, you hear him say I've got to get out and record this. You also hear his friends in the car say we've got a record this and yet when we interviewed them, it was the first time any of them had ever recorded police had ever been with other people who recording the police and I think that is largely part to seeing these videos. On twitter and on facebook of police violence being captured by by citizens being captured by civilians, and so they wanted to hold this police officer accountable and they also started recording him preemptively. They didn't start recording him the moment he started you know approaching them they started recording the minute they were pulling over in. So I think that really signifies to us at least to me that. Even. If you've never participated in a protest or never participated in filming the police, you now know that's an option for you. That's an option for you and that's an option for your community. It is I do think the third part that is going on said here. Is that like it is a protective thing too. You have evidence that maybe you weren't doing anything wrong even like, okay like you get pulled over by the cops and they sight probable cause like you're sitting there peacefully. You get to tell your story, view the camera to I think. These videos, I. Am sure are showing up in courts of law across the country. One thing that's really interesting about this. Again, I come back to that the piece from addy come back to the the body cam video from the science team. I was filming someone else he was at a remove right? It was his friend who is in in the encounter at the police. Most of the powerful videos we see the lead to change our are removed. They're not from the participants. How do you? How do you think that plays out in this larger? There's a lot of change in this country. Now, there's a lot of conflict actually WANNA talk we we published the piece yesterday there's been some criticism I wanNA talk about that. But right now we're we're seeing one sort of very clear perspective from a remove. How do you think that's that's playing I. think a big part of when you hear Isaiah speak about filming he talks about the fact that he constantly to remind himself to take a step back because he knew the moment that he engaged directly with these officer, the officer could come out for could come for him. You know he had he very much understood the power dynamics at play. Even, as him as the filmer, so he kept as the officer kept getting closer he kept moving back and he would ask you can hear in the learned the full twelve minute video this incident you continuously hear him ask the other officer in the video hayes it. Okay. If I'm standing here, is it okay if I'm standing here, he's very conscientious of his body and his proximity to the violence to the violence has been that's being enacted against his friends and when we interviewed him the reason that he did take a step back was because he knew that if they took him if he got arrested along with his friends that that video. Might, not like not not got published right? Like he might not get his phone back. These things might happen and he knew the power of that video and the power of what he was holding his hands and he wanted to share it with the world so that meant taking a step back so he do that and it doesn't mean that it didn't traumatize him every time he sees the video he gets. Traumatized by seeing his friends violated in this way however, he understood that the consequences would not have been possible. Had he not taken a step back and capture according? I also think. Just. Generally speaking like we tend to trust videos that come from outside sources or people who are around but not exactly involved. It adds another like an extra veneer of credibility. I think which is. Another reason that like some of the biggest videos that we see are not like it's not the body cam it's not the person on the ground being choked to death. At, somebody else. Who has has has had the same realization as as but. I think you know just subjectively with trust trust those perspectives more because they feel more objective. CVT camera just happened to capture the incident on on film. I would say with this specific incident like the group that was arrested. In Zambia. The was interested but his friends, Skyler Gilmore Phillips were they were all taking part in questioning this officer across the parking lot. So I don't think they were necessarily objective I. Don't I. Don't think they were I think they saw there being pulled over, they recognize the police officer there friend had just been with them at this barbecue and I think the fact that he was able to get the video out there in the fact that you can see the whole incident play out right? Like in our video we don't show the whole twelve minute video, but it's like five minutes. Of Not, much going on until the officer sort of approaches them. So I think the added quote unquote like credibility is that you see the beginning middle and end of that incident Isaiah did not stop recording until the police left Isaiah began filming before the police had even had even gotten out of their cars. So I think with this specific video, it's less about the eject objectively and more about the fact that he was able to capture all. How do you think that ties into one thing that we write about a lot surveillance where all being surveilled all the time you mentioned TV cameras. A on a different day in a different moment. The way our talks about like extremely prevalent C. T. V. Cameras is crap ring put a camera everywhere. Now we're being surveilled in the cops have access to this footage, right? At the same time what we've been talking about a lot is the presence of this camera at a remove actually serves a purpose is Asia. Taking that video from that remove sort of purpose. How should we think about this balance because I I personally right? Like you catch me in a different minute. I'm over here. I'm over there. Actually surveillance is good. No, I think the difference is it really depends on like the the institution that has the footage and what they want to do it. Right like the cops when they get ring footage and what I mean like it's not it's like the cops are using footage to incriminate and I think generally this is very generally speaking in very, very general terms like it's evidence, right? And you know when it's coming from people on the ground protests were filming. It's documentation it's like the same footage, but it can be used in very different ways depending on who's doing the asking. For, the footage like and where it's going I think I think that context is actually super important right? Because like in England, for example, there are cameras everywhere. There's just like municipal cameras run by the fucking. Like in London, for example, there's there's cameras run by the Metropolitan Police Department, and that's just that's just a fact of life. And I think it's interesting because like they I think they have like controls on how you can use that stuff whereas with ring networks here it's like sort of ad hoc private companies turning it over to the police whenever they feel like it. I don't know I guess I'm going on a little tangent here. I really do think that like it depends on who's asking for the footage and what they intend to do with it. I think you know people taking footage is as it's intended to sort of exonerate his friends and that they weren't doing anything wrong and this sort of an unjustified thing. And I think the intent really matters. So I think that it's not just about the presence of cameras and footage, but it's also about who has those cameras and this of act of pulling out your phone to question authority to question police officers is actually referred to as surveillance by scholars. It is the opposite of surveillance. Right surveillance is often reserved for those in power. It doesn't necessarily mean it's always the state surveilled someone but the moment that you begin to surveilled them, you were taking a bit away a bit of their agency away from them. You're taking a bit of their privacy away from them but soon, valence is this idea of challenging. Authority by trying to sort of disrupt this power dynamic by filming your oppressor by filming specifically in marginalized communities, the police, and so with surveillance, it is the idea of this is what we're talking about right like it's not mentioned one time in the videos nor is it mentioned in any of these pieces but all of this is what scholars refer to sue balance, which was coined by Steve Man, and it's all about looking from below. So you're not looking from below you're not the person who is above and the position of power. You are the person who's often surveilled right like with Isaiah and friends like they were they knew this officer they. They had never recorded this officer, but they not only knew of him. They had previously had seen incidences of him, and so I think by pulling out their phone, what they're doing is trying to challenge this authority figure to them that had represented sort of. Head oppressed in had sort of harassed or had allegedly harassed and targeted African Americans in their community. So they see this officer, they see their black friend being pulled over they understand this officer had allegedly been targeting and harassing African Americans they pull out their phone to begin to try to create a counter narrative, and before any of these things I think Bijon spoke about this earlier like when you start recording early on, you can sort of see the maybe there wasn't any probable cause and what you hear them saying the first few minutes of the video is, what's the probable cause? What's probable cause like why did you over in the officer officers aren't engaging right? and. So I think the role of that video in that moment is about who has it right? Like you can hear them. Surveillance video from above that's muted that can be distorted. It's about the person who got out of the car who started filming. Once they start one saw him started getting attacked the person who filmed at the very beginning and surveillance often doesn't involve you filming. Once you see the police officers sort of attacking someone but you film when you see a police officer because you want to challenge there are over you. Yeah. The when I say we're GONNA face a long period of cultural reckoning over this I don't think that we the surveillance scholarship is that it's very early stages right and it's not builds out. It's not complete. We're learning how it works and that to me is one of. You know when when the smartphone cameras invented I don't think people thought the people who invented the ship in the back of every smartphone thought we're going to have to have a conversation about surveillance when this is all said and done and that to me is. Right and that I think about that, all of the time like there are engineers and product managers and designers who make these products. and. Sometimes they have a guest of how they'll be used but this to me is one of the most surprising revolutionary uses of the technology right just fundamentally and I think this conversation about what does it mean for everyone to record the state? What does it mean for the state? Maybe record your back with a body camera or something else it's going to change the nature of our relationship with the people in power. It is interesting like one of the things that fascinates me about taking video protest specifically is like I think, a lot of police officers on the ground seat is violence when somebody holds a camera to them because it like it does challenger Authority, but it also like like it is a a thing creating a record in real time that they cannot control in a situation and I think it's just very strange because. Yeah I mean, the perspective really matters who's who's taking the video really really really matters. Let's talk about that for a minute in this conversation. In the feature, we have very intentionally chosen to highlight one perspective people filming the videos. We have almost no perspective from the police in return know perspective from the state in return as we are making this project I, you know the editor in chief ultimately I'm for everything I knew we were making that decision I felt comfortable with it. We do hear a lot from the police, but that notion that the camera is impeding the the police officers job that the police are themselves scared of violence they need to be protected that there are people with guns in the street Often fear for their lives how do you think that I mean the piece is almost yesterday right for many people liked it. Some people were critical of it. We appreciate the criticism and makes us better. But how do you how were you prepared for that criticism that there was no perspective from the police as after pieces published how did he react and where are you at now? That's a really I mean that's a really really good question I haven't seen much of that criticism. Charts to my filters I. Guess My. But it's I mean I think the larger question of like what police think is really interesting to me new I. Don't know if you know there's been a few years ago. I actually spent a year in Ohio reporting a story on cops there and like. Like this, this very, it was Liverpool East Liverpool Ohio, which is a very small town between it's like West Virginia Pennsylvania and Ohio. It's right on the border of those places and it was the site at one point of the like it had the worst heroin. Like heroin outbreak people were dying of overdoses every single day like the average was like one a day and the police department was like it largely fell on them to take care of the people and it was really interesting because I what I did was like I just spent like my time going on right alongside like. Suit up get my notebook get in the car and we drive around like I would smoke black and milds with this cop, and we would like He. He would pick people up and so I went to the county jail and like I saw the mechanisms of the state like from the passenger seat, which was very interesting because like the more time you spend with police officers, the more you understand that like. Seeing people seeing people's worst every day does something very bad to your brain. It puts you on extremely high alert. And it makes ordinary situation seem incredibly terrifying and I think. One of the things that goes unexplored is the trauma police officers sort of feel, and they just don't talk about it like all of these. There were seven people department all of them were very, very, very clearly traumatized. In a way that was not obvious to them, but very obvious to me is like an outside observer. And it was interesting because like the other thing that they did most of the time, it was just like social work they were just they knew all the people that were talking to they were involved in the community. Everybody knew them like I remember. The COP I was with like picked up this woman because she like had drugs on her. And he was like, why? Why? Like what happened like we talked about this I let you go last time because like you said, you were working on your raptor what happened to that and it was like one of these things where I was like Oh this guy actually really doesn't understand like where these people are coming from we ended up having to take her to the county. Jail because she didn't have money for bail is like one hundred bucks and he was like on the on the hour long ride back. He was fuming that she would have to spend this long in jail just because she didn't have hundred dollars and so it's one of these things I think like you know there are good cops. The police is fundamentally like disordered. I will say it's like. And I think both of those things are in conversation with each other because like again, there are days that are incredibly bad like this cop was telling me like the worst day of his life I ask offhandedly by the way never ask cop with the worst day of their life is. He Was Not prepared for the answer which was like he was like Oh. Yes. So I had to respond to a call this. This guy had kids who you know his his kids were friends with he locked them in the House and burn the house down because his wife was cheating on him and so this cop had to respond to the call and then go tell kids afterward what happened and it was I was just like that is just like outside. So outside of the scope of a normal person's life. That it's like did it requires examination right and I think that's the kind of trauma that these people are like seeing like one of those one of those events can scarred for life I don't necessarily think being police officer is as dangerous to save a firefighter like statistically speaking. But again, like these horrific incidents of violence really do change your perspective and I think a lot of this kind of trauma is invisible and goes unexamined and it's difficult because a protests which is a very ordinary event. There is A. There is some potential for stuff to go wrong and I think if you're on the lookout for that, like it makes it skews your perspective and you can't see what is happening objectively, which is I think why it's very important that people also film the police at these events because there is another record that is being created in real time.

Federer: WTA/ATP Should Merge - our reaction; John Millman nearly retired, then beat Federer - our interview
"Hello everybody another tennis. Podcast for you won't we weren't planning to bring you a couple of days ago but you know we just can't get enough of this and the so much going on and yes okay. There's no tennis but the stuff to talk about and we've got an interview with Joe Millman for you so we'll have that later but Catherine is here. Catherine David Selamat had David and the reason. We're convening altogether now. Not just having the Joe Millman interview which had been the original plan until about four hours ago is about twelve twenty eight pm today. Russia Federa- tweeted and what he tweeted was just wondering am I. The only one thinking that now is the time for men and women's tennis to be united and come together as one at which point Catherine and I wanted whether this was a teaser to a bit of content that might be coming out between the two tours because they've been producing causes loss of that and then I thought it can't be that cooked because I mean we've had instagram and lives law but moments later he said I'm picturing a merger between the WTO and the ATP I'm not talking about merging competition underscores but merging the two governing bodies the. Wta that oversee the men's and women's professional tours it's too confusing for the fans when there are different ranking systems different logos different websites. Different tournament categories. It probably should have happened a long time ago. But maybe now is really the time these tough times in every sport and we can come out of this to weaken bodies or one stronger body. Now when you hear that when you read that out loud that is pretty strong stuff catherine and and have to. I mean okay. We've been moving towards that in terms of little bits of Combined content under brand of tennis united. And we've had a heard an interview that has been put our way by the of their new seat in the new chairman and drag at NC Talkin about more and more collaboration. But for Roger Federer to come out apparently unsolicited and just say it's time to merge the tolls that was bombshell stuff ready wasn't it behold this novel an exciting idea. Yeah it was pretty bombshell stuff. I mean obviously. It's a good idea. Obviously Reid you. The way you read out these tweets. That sounds entirely sensible great. Let's do it. I'm trying not to be Aussie and SNIFFY ABOUT CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE STORY. And the way it's developing and being told that is happening on twitter. I'm trying to be a bit. Socially distanced from tennis twitter. I say that with heavy equities because it makes me shudder a little bit But it can be a bit of a toxic place and I'm trying to not be embroiled in it but this whole story has dropped exclusively on tennis twitter sort of had to be reeled back in the sort of arms race to claim claimed territory and claim claim that. This was their ideal. This is the first time anyone had this idea. The facts that you know of one suddenly sitting up and taking native destroy quality when a man shouts about it. All of those things I there is a part of me that wants to be about the the. Oc posted me often wins. But I'M GONNA try and be utilitarian about it and think. Look if if this is how the right thing ends up happening then then fine you know and I'm I'm going to echo do some shadowing echoing into something that you're going to say in relation to a different issue Later in the POD. He's talking about the distribution of wealth and prize money among top level players which is now suddenly a a a burning topic or among plays in general and he says look. I can't believe it's taken a pandemic for for this to be taken seriously and for the real powers that be to consider addressing it. Will I feel exactly that way about the the unification of The governing bodies but hey it took countless examples. They were able to for the. Nhs happened say if the ends justify the means then great. I'm going to suppress for once my RC side. I slightly wants to be able to read that. Billie. Jean King's response on twitter to Roger Federer in the in the sort of tone of voice that you began that that line yourself because what she actually says is I agree and have been saying. So since the early nineteen seventies she. I reckon she didn't say it like that. I kind of wish you had. And then she goes on say one voice women and men together has long been my vision for tennis the WTI on its own was always planned. Be I'm glad we're on the same page. Let's make it happen Hashtag. One voice is what Billie Jean King replied with Samana. Halla Patrick Evita Gubbay. Meru all tweeted support for what Roger Federer had to say and then I found the Dow tweeted. Hey Roger Federa- as you know per hour discussions. I completely agree that it would be great to get out of this world crisis with the Union of men's and women's tennis in only one organization which yeah suddenly makes all of this same quite premeditated between the two of them will maybe more than two of them. We haven't had anything I should say on this subject from Novak. Chuck rich the president of the council at this point. But it doesn't feel like this is just some using that Roger. Federer has just done while he's bored in lockdown as such A. It sounds as though it's been given quite a bit of thought he's had this chat so we've been reminded of this press conference. The rough on the Dow was involved in in two thousand nine hundred Australian Open when he responded to questions about whether he thought that should be a combined organization between the deputy. Atp with just telling us a misunderstanding. So he doesn't didn't understand really why that would be a good idea why we should talk about that. Why why that should be on the agenda And so this is a very very different tone now. Obviously we weren't in the middle of a global pandemic at that point. The world looked very different. It may it may well be that people who had previously never given a second thought to a combined organization of Sydney. Actually th. That's the way out of this. That's a good idea and got to be ready for that. But it's it's pretty stark. Isn't it the difference in town? Yeah I mean elements of needles. Tweet genuinely made me laugh out loud. First of all any suggestion that Is Great is his. English is Spanish as a first language adult composed. Hey at Roger Federer as per discussions. I mean absolutely no way. Is That tweet composed by Rafael Nadal? Himself as per I've ever seen his tweets to Anna Ravenna. Vish venevision join twitter. He said I look forward to our discussions on this means of communication when it was back in the early days of twitter. It was really sort of formal. And it's like a tweet anyway. It kind of reminded me of that one. Yeah so I mean yeah I mean that's not anything. Groundbreaking is that. He didn't necessarily compose himself. And if I was tweeting in a second language I would probably ask for some assistance as well. We've got to eat so I'm not having a pulp about that. But it the the sort of the attempt to say this. This was my idea too. I this came from a discussion that we both had. I was in on this too. That made me laugh because yeah I mean he. He kind of gets a slightly on it from me included because I think I kind of write him off of somebody. That's just not not hugely engaged with the with the wider. She's in Tennessee. And he kind of mice to the time brushes off interrogation about them as sort of. Oh you'll have to ask other people that are that are better informed and have have moose stake in it than than me. I'm not the best person to speak to you. That that clip. That's going around on twitter from the loss. Jesus straighten open is a good example of that. But the fact is he. He hasn't been supportive of equality in In Women's Tennessee's very much market forces based approach T. V. Prize money in the tools etc. So yeah this is. It's a bombshell.
Italy seeks to calm fears in Europe as cases, deaths rise
"The corona virus is starting to make its presence across Europe with fresh cases being diagnosed in Austria Croatia and Switzerland. The people affected have visited northern Italy. Recently it has become the it has become Europe's worst affected country with more than three hundred cases and eleven deaths and just last night. It was announced that the huge furniture show salone. Del Mobile in Milan is to be postponed from late April to June this year as a precautionary measure while Enrico Franceschini is the London correspondent for La Repubblica. And I'm delighted to say he joins me on the line a very warm welcome back to the program and Reiki and before we start looking at the wider approach. Could you just bring us up to date with this news about Solo? Neil Mobile. Well it is one of the many things in in the calendar that have been canceled. You have to understand it For example seeks games. Oh practically Oldham says gained the Major League of football have been played without public So same applies to Basketball Games and Schools are closed. The university closed in northern Italy in six regions and This is the latest fashion week. Milan the last two days were cancelled. The last two days of the Carnival in Venice tour cancelled. So it's a huge cancellation of which the last let me mention. Is that the the newest today in the newspapers. That forty percent off bookings from curious have been cancelled all across Italy which is can put the country very quickly into a recession or this is a country which is the point of recession anyway before Corona virus began Tell us what the threats do phase off for For the for the Italian economy. Well threat is the economy will leases close to a standstill? We did them. Their factories offices have not been closed yet Many many companies are asking their employees to work from home. If they can of course were they do not have to produce thinks that but the loss for Italy can be Our stock exchanges plunging like everywhere else In the world and it's difficult to understand what can be done to avoid damage the government to start to take very harsh measures at the beginning of this crisis now Last night the prime minister said that we have to stop the panic but the panic is out there already. One thing that You mentioned what the measures might be. The financial measures. Is that lurks telly. The Deputy Economy Minister says the European Union should be prepared to step in if Italy's economy suddenly start to to to develop big con problems. I mean as you say. It was not in a good state. Beforehand economy contracted by point three percent in the last quarter is the EU is possibilities at the the. The Brussels should become a little bit more flexible on its budget targets for Italy. Yes it is and the the first signals from brasler Saturday they would goes down Over the limits that will allow it as an emergency measure so these is possible but the economic crisis can become so steep and so serious that this was even be enough. We know how long this crisis could gone and at the same time. It's the paradox. Is that the majority of these? Three hundred twenty five gazes at it'd been limited to very small areas to clusters of small cities. Were in all sixty thousand. People leave the country with sixty five million people and they will. The other case is somehow connected with this. It's not that we have had Turkey cases in Milano or or fifty cases in thirty in the big industrial city. So it's very very limited over there but the fear that the silent bureaus is going through the system. He's put creating this. This panic wearing no supermarkets have been emptied the and the the we see a la Scala. Their famous theater balandras cancelled all. It's a shows and the churches are empty squares that are empty many. Cd's and people are afraid of content. It does bring into question. The ways that you can in fact contain the outbreak of a virus. The World Health Organization yesterday praised China for its ability to Effectively seal off parts of its country to ensure that the corona virus did not spread. The political. Argument has been made that you can do that in China because the infrastructure is already that limit movement to limit free speech for central control to take place. It's a very different situation when you've got a country like Italy and you've got a region like the European Union which is extremely used to free movement free expression no borders and indeed. The Italians don't like to be You know limited in their travel because it has a distant memories of the past years Appointed these valid argument on the other end the et did the use the same similar measures to China. This these cities have been completely closed. The police surrounded them. The streets are empty and nobody can enter. Nobody can go out. Of course maybe someone had gone out before the problem is we don't know for our longer. Divider was spreading. The seeds may be lower level of intensity and then slowly made inking inroads in other parts of the country and from those now we see a case nor staircase in France. One argument was at the beginning. That Italy has tested more people than other Kansas which is valid for France for example France At tested hundreds of people easily tested four thousand people and so the number of cases is is higher but in Britain. The people Tested there is almost seven thousand Morton Italy and the number of cases Betty Law. It's possible that one problem was that has been mentioned that easily stopped the interrupted all the flights from China. Why other countries like Britain did not about and and these provoked the maybe some people who had the disease to come back maybe through Germany or to France and come back to Italy while May Be but it was able to monitor people coming in from this flights but these are all Speculations it's difficult to know exactly out.

"evita" Discussed on The Takeaway
"I'm Tenzin Evita in the wake of another horrific mass shooting. You share your reaction to these events. I usually avoid details as a bit much to take in, I try to find information out about the victims to honor them, but nothing about the perpetrators Probably this. with the small street shooting realized that felt a little desensitized, and I just kind of side like another mass shooting we look at the choices the media makes while covering shootings. And how efficient are changing the way they talk about suspects. Also on the show, what's happening in Israeli politics, and how it affects the Trump administration's plans for Middle East peace deal plus a dramatic rise in police killing civilians in Rio de Janeiro under Brazil's president will so not oh and the women's World Cup. Start soon we're talking about the US team. I in our coverage, let's get started. Friday afternoon in Virginia Beach, a gunman shot and killed twelve people at the city's municipal building eleven of them were city employees. There have been one hundred forty eight mass shootings in twenty nineteen where four or more people were shot, it's conversation. We've had with you before over and over, and your reactions from this weekend lead the show today is this carried from Pittsburgh? I think, oh, no, not again, then I heard the news for a period of days until the next disaster or mass shooting occurs. Take the headlines away this armor from Richmond. I'm no longer interested in details because they seem to be always the same someone snapped guns were readily available. People died out FOX and prayers with the victims families, blah, blah, blah. This is Richard from Hollywood Hawaii. You know, I used to get really upset and wonder what's happening to America. But godly with this most recent shooting I realized that felt a little desensitize just kind of side like another mass shooting. This is Frankie calling from Olympia, Washington. I usually avoid details as a bit much to take in. I don't really feel like feeding it with my attention helps anything. This is Mary from lake Stevens. I think about victims, but I definitely have details, no mass shooting, or every day shooting for that matter will lead to a change in gun laws. This Lucien is surely political will this is Sydney Elkin from multi Georgia. I tried to find information out about the victims to honor them, but nothing about the perpetrators. They don't deserve to be told. These shootings have become so commonplace in American life that many of you told us, you're becoming desensitized, you also told us that more attention should be given to victims than to the shooter and to address this city officials in Virginia Beach chose to identify the suspected shooter, only once by name referring to him after that, only as the suspect the focused, they said, should be on the twelve people killed Keita. Kita Seib round Terrel, wilt scalper. Mary Louise Gail Alexander Mikhail. Gustaf Catherine a Nixon, Richard, h nettleton Christopher Kelly. Rap Ryan Keith Cox, Joshua, a party, Michelle Missy language. Bobbi Williams, Burt smelling. Among academics. There's a growing consensus that when media outlets censured they're reporting on the shooter's themselves that coverage has the potential to lead to copycat violence. And that's just one area where the media's role in how we cover mass shootings takes on added responsibility today, a look at the way, we respond to mass shootings in this country and how public officials and the media could do it better.

Likudnt: Israels political crisis
"In Israel just last month. Benyamin Netanyahu was celebrating a strong showing by his Likud party in parliamentary elections. He had been forced to call an early poll as he faced a raft of corruption allegations, his victory seemed like a vote of confidence by the Israeli people. And he grinned ingredient cheering crowds on election night, but all has not gone smoothly since Israel has many political parties and mister Netanyahu has struggled to build the coalition he needs to form a government. He called publicly on one party leader. His former defense minister of eager Lieberman to join him. Let's through this of net, the victim liberal, unfortunately, until this moment, including tonight, I didn't manage to complete a victory Lieberman to avoid elections. But whoever looks at the reality that we need to be responsible and former government immediately those please failed. So a few minutes after midnight, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset voted to dissolve it. So for reports from Israel for the economist and recently wrote a book about mister Netanyahu. And this is just thirty days after it was sworn in seven weeks after Laos election in. This is unprecedented in his right. But it'd go history. And why it's been so difficult to, to build a coalition Netanyahu proclaimed victory, because his block of right wing, religious parties had a majority of five seats in the Knesset. So it seemed that he had one. However, to make that victory reality needed to get all those policies cooperating together in one coalition and one issue the issue of the draft of Sheva students, students in religious seminaries proved so prove so contentious that one of the parties demanded the law on this. We should be ready drafted the previous be passed as literally, without changing, a comma, while some of the religious parties in the coalition demanded major changes to the law, and the prime minister. Currently so prime minister, who was very eager to begin his fifth tablet, prime minister couldn't bridge those differences. So what happens now? So what should have happened last night at midnight was with Netanyahu deadline on the tiny allocated to him to form the coalition up sewing else you've received the opportunity to, to form a coalition by his Rayleigh low, but there was also, there's those close into never been used with specifies that dissolved the whole process of foreign governments stops and the country goes back to the polls, and that is the closet into Neo used and therefore in three and a half months Israel will be held another election. And meanwhile, mister Netanyahu is under investigation on corruption allegations. How will that then play out in the current absence of government and the potential for a different one was really Mr. Gatien's ready been wraps up, and the attorney general has tentatively decided to indict into now on bribery and fraud in through? In, in those three investigations Mosul efforts over the last few weeks when he should have been trying to solve this problem between his coalition partners was trying to get the parties to agree to vote on various pieces of legislation, which would grant him immunity from prosecution and would shield him from any intervention of the high court in that decision. That is now that has now been shelved those pieces of today's another go ahead. Certainly not until the election, and another government is formed, assuming wins the next election form that government. So he's lost very valuable time for him. And in that time the hearing. Harry's. It will proceed and there's a chance that before the attorney general decides to, to indict attending and to charge them in court for bribery, he, he won't have any relation in place. It to shield him has steadfastly denied the allegations ever since the investigations begun over three years ago. He said, there's nothing in them, but step after step it turned out that there is some serious evidence, which led to form investigation. But now he's instead of is standing up in court against he's trying to vade any kind of you say this situation is unprecedented. And, you know, everyone would have expected that mister Netanyahu could have formed, a government does the fact that he hasn't suggest that, perhaps his rivals smell blood and are positioning themselves for power. Well, certainly Evita Lumine the leader of small, nationalist secular, particle, Estrella bay, taint, Israel, our home, who demanded that. The law be. Passed. And that was the reason why there is no code Asian. He says he felt that he could challenge the two now. And see his calculation is that now is, is going down eventually and therefore, there's no reason for him to be a member. His coalition is ready staking out, new ground in the right wing for the in the post tenure era. So he's, he's the first major is right wing politician, Israel to openly challenge. It's in recent years, and they'll be others who will follow him, if there is this large group of parties. Why is Mr. LeBron Lieberman ended up as the king-maker here? Well, the there was nothing, you know, block of parties had a majority of five seats, those five seats, a walked LeBron's party without those five seats than the majority, and what about the peace process? Jared Kushner is is in the country with this US led plan in hand on solving is really Palestinian issues. But there's no government for. Him to talk to. Well, we've got used to the fact that the Trump administration delaying disposing the unveiling of its much way to peace plan. But now that finally have gone out to this piece for spiritedly workshop beret next month. I doubt that they'll delay once again due to the political turmoil in Israel. It's mainly anyway, for the Americans to get together with our bed regimes and work out some kind of economic offense not yet, the ethical stage of, of, of the Trump, and if we ever get to that stage, that stage will will probably be postponed due to these Rayleigh election. Right. And how do you think the, the election will go? Do you, do you think that mister Netanyahu will be able to form a coalition the next time around? It's wouldn't election two months ago. He didn't manage to take that victory and, and China into a function government, but he, he, he wouldn't the right wing religious, bodies one majority, which was not known large one, but it was pretty clear. And it's difficult to see the opposition overturning that this point. But we're in uncharted territory. Now we've never had a second election in the same year's election held just only five months after the previous one. And there's also this new rift within the right wing have a right wing party. Basically saying that Netanyahu, dreitzer, former government, he failed, and now we probably won't be sporting in the future. So there's a sort of shift in the political map in Israel, which which will have to wait and see how that pans out. Thank you very much for your time.
Would you eat lab-grown meat? (The 3:59, Ep. 536)
"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Rueben Joni Sussman it's called clean meat or cultured me scientists can take a collection of cells from an animal without harming it. Feed. Those cells nutrients and grow them into lab grown, meat Lexus. Evita's has a great video about her. Visit to a company called just that's developing lab-grown, chicken and beef. So Joan your vegetate Erion. I'm sorry for forcing you to like be Representative of vegetarians everywhere token vegetarian. Thank you very much for doing that would vegetarians eat something like this. I feel like it's supposed to be marketed for vegetarians. Do they do they want this product unless you're how Justice marketing it, and I don't even know if it's to market. I don't think it's tomorrow. But. I think the I would assume the idea is not just a market vegetarians. I think probably the ideas to market to all consumers of meat and non people that don't eat me. Like, I think in from a vegetarian perspective, I think whether or not you would be okay, eating a lab grown meat that is legitimate chicken. Or beef protein depends on why you became vegetarian the first place, you became vegetarian the first place for like a like, I don't want animals to be killed for my meat reason than it. Theoretically would be fine. If you stopped eating meat because you're like, I don't like the idea of any animal protein entering my body, then you wouldn't. So I think comes down to that. But I do think that probably they don't wanna just reach the small niche market of vegetarians. Yeah. Right. But the second part that you mentioned, so my my wife was vegetarian for a very long time until should be pregnant with twins and had to start eating protein to make sure she had to start eating fish and chicken to make sure she was gonna protean. Yeah. And she doesn't like the texture of chicken. Yeah. So if I mentioned this to her, I don't think she would like it. You know, it doesn't matter. Whether it was from like, a chicken that you killed or whether it was from a chicken grown in a lab, right? You know, this kind of like, I don't know. I think it's fascinating. I think it's a really interesting concept. What are the other elements that is definitely interesting to discuss as far as the environmental impact. So there are people became vegetarian also because they're concerned about the environment. They they see that, you know, creating a pound of beef is also very taxing on the environment as being somebody who just plant based products. Right. So I think that maybe the bigger Mark. That they would be going for is people who eat meat already, but are feeling guilty about it because it doesn't. So this kind of meet a it doesn't actually involve killing an animal. So you can eat your meat without having to kill cute little chicken. But it also doesn't involve the UN says that thirty percent of the planet's land surface is used for livestock agriculture an eighteen percent of climate change emissions of carbon dioxide emissions. Believe are from the same thing. So actual meat from where you kill the chicken and kill the cow. That's really really bad for the environment. In a lotta ways. So I would imagine just going for people since it's a bigger market people that eat meat, but maybe would like to do it in a way that doesn't hurt the planet as much doesn't hurt the animals as much. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely interesting. When jump to the next topic next up apple announced yet another product update this week after the ipad announcement yesterday. Revamped the guts in its twenty one point five inch and twenty seven inch. I'm axe though. They look the same as prior models. Both us ops got new Intel processors and radio on graphics cards. It's interesting that they're just coming out with these as like these very simple quick incremental announcements because it seems pretty clear that they're moving more towards services as the next great thing to kind of save Apple's business because the iphone isn't doing as well as had been doing in previous years, right? Yeah. So they've they've had a stated initiative that they're going to try to get their services to twenty percent of revenue by the end of Tony twenty and to do that that means that they're going to have to launch more services. But so we do have the event coming up next week where it's expected to be services heavy events next Monday. And so what we're seeing this week? I think is apple kind of clearing the deck of all these other incremental improvements and news announcements that have to do with Pat and have to do with MAC and give people really good impression that like, hey, you're almost definitely not gonna get any product. You're not getting hardware next week are very possible. Look air pods to. We'll see. Yeah. Right away last right.

Intimate Hermit Crab Keeps Shell On
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin. So I never really thought I'd study Pena size, but I sort of stumbled on this topic Mark lider, a biologist at Dartmouth College light travels to Costa Rica to study hermit crabs a species called sina Beata compresses. These land crabs do some interior remodeling of their adopted shells, the extensively hollow them out removing Streit's called spiral cholula to give themselves some extra elbow room. The renovation renders. The shells more precious to their owners and two other covetous crustaceans as well. These more valuable shells, though are also more easily stolen since without the spiral. Kolya Mellon signed the shell to grip onto individuals are pretty liable to have their property snatched from them, particularly when they're engaged in other activities like copulation which requires coming part way out of the shell despite his work in the field. It wasn't until lighter was wandering through Ziam that he noticed something about his favourite crabs the really striking thing. Was that scene? Evita compresses the one who social behavior I've been studying for so many years headed unusually large penis, in fact, bigger than any other species the observation gave him an idea, which he dubbed the private parts for private property hypothesis in a sense, the hypothesis posits that in large private parts can be an adaptation extending amounts sexual reach and thus enabling both him and his partner to remain safely tucked away inside their shells, while they copulate thereby protecting the private property of their shells from being stolen during sex Darwin proposed a similar idea to explain why barnacles which are stuck in one place are so amply Dowd did test his private parts for private property hypothesis light or sized up more than three hundred male museum specimens, including hermit crabs that live on land. And it's see any found that crabs that carried custom coverings head the most impressive Kornel equipment at the same time species that got their shells off the shelf had bigger geared than did crabs that walked around with. Oh, shell at all is results revealed in the Royal Society journal open science, it's intriguing to think that this high posses might have greater generality beyond hermit crabs. But like a hermit crab encountering a humdrum. Shell Lantra says he's going to leave that one alone. For me. I'm much more curious about how forms of animal architecture and remodeling in the environment impact social behavior. Thanks for listening for scientific Americans, sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin.
