"I won't pretend it was like really deep. Well-thought-out thing was just like it's the glass house and it was that that from the beginning it evokes so many things like the glass pavilion all of these various specific images. Even when you just hear the title but but i think no. You're totally right though. And i think that's a really astute observation because that's why there was no question because the title itself so rocketed and it does provoke all those images that the fundamentally inherently speak to the layers of metaphor in the fall but there was no question because it was the only title that so that so affectively ticked all those boxes in this innocuous innocent phrasing the sort of parallels the facade and the the external beauty that like masks or shield the this world that it is much different than it seems even to clean cliches femininity right like a sort of a little bit of an issue all of the like the female tropes of like this is what a woman is because then we have we introduce these girls that have no concept of that that aren't influenced by societal cliches of what a woman supposed to be or just acting as individual just as human beings in this extraordinary circumstance but it takes a minute watching their behavior to be like. Oh what they're wearing and what they look like is very different beast from the reality of the world they're living in and of course the vulnerability is also there in the title is while well it's between both those facade you're always putting on the feminine to begin with but then also the truth that underlies everything it's just such a beautiful title no thank you. I'm i really appreciate that. I mean we love it in e yes there are all those those cliches that. Hey we're just providing a gift for journalists to have fun and interesting. Because i hear so many filmmakers now talking about how they're under so much pressure when it comes to the titles of their films be hashtag blank and so it comes at the beginning of the alphabet. So that when you appear in. Oh that's awful. I don't i really hope. I never have made about that stuff..

"Totally different strengths as writers but with a wonderful thing because then we complement each other. But we're we we love and are attracted close by similar art. I mean we. We love You know like like we realized we'd written a ferry town. Well that makes sense because we re really love gothic like fables like they you know. We both grew up on reading things like weathering heights. So it's like we had this this susceptibility in this language that we like consistently refer back to that. We knew what we were sort of going for. But also i think it's y- credit not to mention that ms father anthropologists so the importance of ritual and patterns an in identifying identity and culture is something that she grew up with and then on my side. I think my own reflections on memory in my experience with trauma what. It's like to sort of move. Someone via issues with memory is very close to for me so i think our own individual Experience a sort of merge but in terms of the writing process. I mean we. We beat it all out verbally. We did a scene breakdown and outlined before we ever started writing and then we alternated scenes. I always take odds she takes. Even we literally that simple. I write all the odd scenes all the even scenes. I'm then we we go through all of us together and we do a script on each other scenes but on on on a call together. I mean person. Ideally but it's cova time rates were and then we just fight like cats. We add it each scene but like in the best sisterly way. Because it's the word we both feel so strongly about words and the power of words and capturing exactly what we want and we always end up with something so much stronger than anything that we would have done individually. And i'm so grateful to have someone like her in my life so we can that we feel so strongly about the work in the same way that will be so fierce in in in finding the truth. Ironically of what. We're trying to tell a team. Yeah i mean the truth but the truth that transcends time as yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. honoring awards as. It's incredible the using that kind of systematic tradeoff. You come up with something. That feels so round and cohesive in this world and then i'm going to be that guy and just to that whole thing about the name last house. Yeah go so. I have to ask. How many different layers of meaning people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones Of course..

"Of truth that was january accepted by by the masses. And now i realize that isn't true an- another like i was wrong to believe that and that's been quite sobering so the fact that glass. How sorry this is long winded. But the fact that glasshouse actually directly deals with that in two very distinct coping mechanisms for trauma is is something that only in hindsight door realized how closely than yours. the reality were living in. But it's certainly. I'm sure was informed by it whether subconsciously or consciously are not. Oh wow because. I kept thinking that that had to be very deliberate in some sense because it felt so almas triggering in a way. Yeah white man. Come in and yeah. Destroy everything lights while. I'll put spoiler warning on here but it's like the idea that you have one person subjecting everyone else to another version of the truth. A new narrative at new narrative coming in intruding. It makes the film work on so many other levels. Thank you in this particular moment. It's such a beautiful metaphor for everything that we've experienced from in america. Twenty sixteen in the arms. So it's a it's a yeah twenty sixteen ambience boy to put it as well. I you know. It's strange because i think a lot of times. You know life and packs us consistently austin. I think you know you think you have a handle on your own coping mechanisms on things. And what's going on in the world. Aren't i don't think we're always cognizant or aware of how much were affected by things as we actually are and i know that like i am only now starting to come to grips with the ways in which i've been impacted by the last couple of years but when emma on our work emma michael writer in this movie would not exist without her and she's just incredible creature When we were developing idea together and we we came upon memory as the core tenant of this idea. We'd both been impacted by memories like she. She hasn't Family member who suffered from dementia. I have a family. Member suffered from short term memory loss. And i've also you know had events in my own life that make you wonder you know. Am i really a better person now. Because i've gone through this like you know it's like you're supposed to be tougher stronger from experiences but sometimes things are so crippling at the time or traumatic to deal with the early leaders second. Is this really shaped me for the better or am i actually just kind of broken. All i'd like. How do i get through this. And i think like that question of like if you could erase memory if you could erase a trauma would you. And what would is that. A viable honorable coping mechanism right..

"Thank you so much for coming on. And i am so happy to be able to talk to you about this movie. I wanted to start off by asking you a couple of questions in terms of your decision to make this movie now given that it's a film that revolves around a group of women and one man. Who are you know together in this collective community the memory keepers who are keeping history alive in the midst of a virus that seems to be shredding people's memories. The question is in this particular moment. When history particularly tenuous as a big part of the writing process i will. I will have to say. Thank you so much for this question. For touching on the idea of truth as tenuous because it's almost as though. The story is become warren more relevant throughout the development and production of post process. I think when we started conceptualizing the idea. No we didn't have any idea how much it was a life imitating art imitating life scenario where the irony being that. We conceptualize the rough like concept for the phone in february before we had any idea that impact the cobra was going to have and then we got green light to go into development on it one week before south africa lockdown so we were super thrilled and grateful for this gift to have something to do. I was in lockdown alone. I co writer. Emma with like my lockdown family her and my other writing on their project and our producer greg so they were like sort of my lifeline through the flock on but we looked at it. Is this like incredible gifts that we could be working together on things. We're really passionate about in stories. We really cared about during this new challenging time but the but the concepts already shaped And then as we were writing only. I think after we finished we realized sort of what we done. And the degree to which was eerily eerily similar to the reality that we're living on the the irony being that i have another sci-fi project that has a toxic compound in the atmosphere that i wrote eight years ago so we were developing glasshouse. I was more worried about being accused of being a lazy creative and using the same device toy then than anything to do with cove it Because i mean. I think like you know it's like it's not like we haven't pandemic films haven't been made before rate is like the gift of sci-fi is that a challenge people to think about what if scenarios that are actually much closer to real life than i think we always realize and were suddenly in the surreal experience. Where like genre working. Normally write about is uncomfortably. Close to home. But what i didn't know event. And what i'm shook by now is is how tenuous the concept of truth seems to be in every day life. And that's not a reality. I ever was really cognizant of before. I think i think it really started shift for me in late. June july august. You know like as vaccinations became available over the course of the last six months. That wasn't something that was on my radar as much because you you always thought there was a baseline level.

I'll probably preface this by saying slight spoiler here. But i did find it interesting. How the white characters at the end are expressing anti-colonial sentiment and the deep deep irony inherent within that and i just wondered for you as writer and director. How was it to express that on fell where your own personal feelings on the subject. Easy to reframe for either the script writing process or the directing process. I think as the full maker note is is lobbying spied by within this. Also you know especially within the genre conventions i was trying to see how based on occupancy and what people would expect. There was a way to soccer the expectation of a character and so with with that character and sort of anti-colonial the irony said would iranian that's On that it is ironic. This man who who is white man teaching the anti-colonial laboratory in ashes facts. He is matching plan. That goes against that in. It's actually always earned personal gain.

And it's just something that everyone knows about it known talks about it so so why. What if that was weaponized. Wouldn't that be interesting definitely. And it's a story that definitely needs to be told because the as you mention especially in bipasha communities mental health and dealing with mental health is something that's still scrutinized or put away something though that's weakness like it you just have to work and keep going and thinking of mental health especially by older generations. It's been stemmed as or you're just not trying hard enough like we've gotten through things. So why aren't you doing the same. That's a very toxic cycle that we have as by have been so addressing this openly in especially in something as interesting as an action thriller like indemnity makes it visible on the forefront but it gives an interesting twist to it what i also liked about this movie. Lot egyptian indian myself but i was born and raised in edlund size speak. Dutch and afrikaans is a form of dutch. Basically because of the colonization so watching this movie like i understood most of the cons and it was very interesting because all the bad guys were the ones speaking afrikaans. Mostly like moses about guys at least and was that a conscious choice first of all and second of all where there's players in there to kind of poke at the colonization of south africa by ditch among others. Let me let me start with the with the with the language topic. I think i'm look what we wanted to do. Was was was was. Tell a story as with agp as possible and oscar week but net official lapidus says quite been. You have dental abs.

Speaking and some next financial sense to to to produce phones in afrikaans. Obviously that's changing and it has been changing a bit of the of the loss is a streaming mates different kinds of languages more accessible. I think i'm that was that was a big insurance.

"I'm delighted to be able to speak with you. Because i was one of the few americans who was privileged enough to see number thirty seven early on and i was absolutely blown away by that film and so i was very excited to see. Indemnity is at fantasia. I was just absolutely bowled over by a lot of the ways in which you express the action in indemnity and also the colonial implications of what. You're doing here just incredible so well. Thank you so much for having me. Yachts real estate's china today. I'm i'm excited yet and wondered if you wouldn't mind sharing how it was that you came to indemnity as a concept in terms of both the writing and directing.

What Is the Legal Rationale for Biden's COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

"Gap best vaccine mandate has taken effect. You listeners have to get vaccinated or else you have to listen to me. Spin out stephen. Breyer fantasia every day. That's gonna be. The new mandate from the vest after shunning mandates. For months president biden has announced a broad mandate. So he's requiring federal employees and contractors to get vaccinated. He's also requiring healthcare workers at federally funded institutions get vaccinated and he has had osha. The occupational safety and health administration come up with a rule that will require companies that have more than one hundred workers to demand vaccination or weekly testing in order to protect the workplace health and safety of other employees. there he also doubled fines on people who violate math mandates on things like airplanes so emily. It's pretty clear that this mandate on federal workers and those on federally funded health clinics legal straight up. No problem i mean people may not like it seems like biden can do it. What is the legal rationale for the mandate on large employers. The legal rationale for the mandate is that the federal government through osha through. It's occupational health and safety powers sets tons of rules for workplaces. There are plenty of other vaccine. Mandates out there in the united states in schools and at work and lots of other conditions that the government sets for employers and employees to follow and so the biden administration wants to see this as kind of routine use of its powers in that domain and there is some precedent for this but this is also in its scope and its sweep and introducing a new vaccine pretty unprecedented and so i expect legal challenges to binds vaccine conditions. Once this rule is finalized.

"Speak with you about this film today. Thank you so much for coming on the show to talk about. When i consume you at fantasia s i know this is not your first. Go round fantasia given the success of your earlier film. They look like people wondered if you could share with us. What the experience at fantasia of this particular film has been like for you. Yeah so thanks so much. Thanks for having fantasia means so much to us. Our first phone was sort of coming out of nowhere. We you know we made it for five thousand dollars. We had no idea what would what would happen so it. It had gone to slam dancin pastures some festivals. But we had never been to genre festival before an fantasia really. I mean we didn't know festivals could be like this the community that's built here and the kind of atmosphere and the people in the audience questions were all better and we sort of fell in love with genre circuit after to that it also really transformed the ark of the film. People finally started to notice it. Mitch has been a huge inspiration and help that first film. Get off its feet. So coming back feels i mean especially. It's been a rough guess. Probably not as rough two years. I'm sure everybody or whatever so it felt like a wonderful way to come back to some stuff that we really loved with this new film. All all festivals. Have i don't know. I mean this is what it feels like like cities have sort of souls like chicago. New york festivals have souls to us and fantasia was our favorite festival experience. So it's so wonderful to be back here. Even though i just wish we could be there in person but you know one day definitely would have been even more awesome to have seen it in a bigger screen. But i'm happy that regardless of the current situation that we're worldwide in. I was able to see this movie because it corrupt knee. What a heartbreaking story and again. It's in the same theme like they look like beep where there is this not so subtle. Even like a really heartburn jin story about mental health and dealing with that in society for this particular story with the brother and sister. It deals with two people. I'm going through this and him seeing her. What inspired you to make this story for. Not concerning some version of the script had been in my head for a while for almost eight years and it was always about this sort of bul protagonists story of a character. Who was you know. They both were trying to fight something after them in antagonist and one of them to transform they both have to transform in some way to be able to fight this and this is the first time i sort of realizing that part of it is that i feel like i have not quite like the devil in the angel on your shoulder. But i have a wilson. Anna daphne inside of me where i you know. Wilson has all this nerd stuff and magic cards and lives in this kind of womb and it gets to be kind of a kid but that's only because his older brother sister protected him through so many things and she's awesome but also it's hard being deafening. It's you know you have to hold the whole world together with sort of sheer force of will deal with hid. Basically and i definitely feel that wrestling match of how to be soft enough to like enjoy life and love other people but also hard enough to confront life's difficulties in pain and fight through them and protect those you love so i think that was that sort of wrestling match between those two ways of being especially getting older you know. I'm in my late thirties. Now and looking start a family. These sorts of things that the that was always i think the the heart and the soul of the movie definitely. I wanna commend you on this because a little personal fact is. I raised my own law as sibling my younger brother. And in some of the situations that daphne was in. I was thinking like yeah. I'm right. i felt this type of despair so it felt very true. Too hard the way they were portraying. This have not dealt with drugs in the way that the characters were doing but definitely the mental health aspect and feeling like you've been abandoned by the systems especially we were both teen. I was a teen with. He was an infant When we got into this whole system and it was just so gorgeous to see that portrayed in a true to life way in this movie that really catch it. Like i felt like for them because i it resonated with me with my personal story so that was very beautiful. I would love to commend you on that. Oh thank you that actually. I'm the means a lot to me. Because i think the actors and i all have people in our life loved ones alive that have experienced things not dissimilar from what wilson definitely went through. I think we were so we cared so much about doing right by these characters and their experience on this experience we knew we. It's a responsibility to tell these sorts of stories that we take very seriously so that means a lot that that it impacted you in that way and when you talk about the strengthen the resilience that you need to have as a human being encountering these different kinds of traumas in the real world you also see that. Play out in your filmmaking. As well in that you're you're you're starting with the very hard gut punch to open on such a striking image and very very resonant emotional impact and then to kind of gentle the below by the end of the film. How difficult was that. In the directing and writing process. I think on libya the actor on we had some sort of put through psychological ringers. A little bit and the the end of the days. They apparently wanted sat on a bench and libby was looking to adopt a puppy. They just puppy scrolled for like twenty minutes to kind of deal. With what the you know. They just went through a specially the scene where he discovers her. You know in the state that that scene. I think we only got to takes out of that. And then we all including me were dislike we got. We got to stop. This is Very this is a lot. I think opening the way we did. I wanted to make sure that this bell tactile on physical. And i think when i've gone through bouts of loneliness or or struggle it hasn't felt in my head or sort of. Oh it's just mental at feels physical. You wake up feeling kind of bludgeoned. And i wanted to bring physicality into the movie early definitely kind of realism to it. So that the ending felt once we got to the ending it felt earned and like we had really the wasn't a waving one and they would all be okay that they had really gone through kind of crucible together mentally.

It was the most horrible thing you've ever seen to take it very seriously to violence very seriously and i will also tell you that there were several other moments that were moments where we sort of turn to each other virtually and we're like is this really going there. One of them was also talking about the president. We were talking about the fact that johnny one came in to read for the president of china and with the political context in taiwan. I'm not saying we have to explain everything about the political context between china and taiwan. But i think most of our listeners and viewers will understand that it's a very fraught relationship and especially right now given everything that's happening with hong kong. It's quite pointed your satire in that moment and it was so delicious to watch. But i wondered what enabled you to make that. Do you think your outsider status allowed to be able to say things like that. Sure absolutely i said this. I've said this before. But i wouldn't say it again because you're not dumb. I was just gonna say that. I'm like the the position that i take in terms of how much how much of a barrier breaker. How much of like how smashing down walls or whatever.

But if you stop giving it work it will kill you and Actually this is what is happening right now everywhere so it is based here in my hometown with my own experience inside of it but still i can understand that it is like a small world everything that happens in the big world happens here in a smaller scale and this is that the tools have taken over our lives and they are constantly asking us to do something they want work to be done now and if you if you don't give them work Taken you know start to get the angry and they want to catch you and put their hands around your neck so this is This is something. I think that this relatable to this state that we are living right now. Yes it's definitely a parallel to social media. If you look at it for you constantly have to post and be active on it and if you're not than it comes back to you with the revenge basically just because i think that right. Now there's like this weird revolution going on everywhere. Same as here in the small town and there's the social media revolution people like it was. It was only recently that people have their own voice that they can speak freely something and they don't need media to accelerate their feelings. They can do it on their own. And also there is this weird psychedelic revolution going on everywhere and i felt like it is something that needs to be a. I'll fill them basically that's wonderful and because there are so many elements that pop up throughout the film that show things that look like. They're the new world. but they aren't like the v the siri modeled. Ai assistant that's really young. Children with head pieces on in offensive hill cooking shop and those kinds of elements that look like they're part of the new integrated technology but they aren't and then you have so many things that look old world but aren't as well like with the oregon that plays and the glasses without lenses because a character has had lazic surgery.

How Xerox & Some Dalmatians Saved Disney

"The new one hundred and one dull nations villain origin story crew ella seemed to be a real love or hate flick or more like a lukewarm dislike or confused enthusiasm based on reviews with titles like weird but i think i like it whatever the reaction the film seems to have been pretty far from what people were expecting mostly because it has almost nothing to do with the one hundred and one puppies that made guerrilla deville famous but sixty years before this any chaotic punk tinged origin story the world got its first film adaptation of dodie. Smith's nineteen fifty six children's novel the hundred and one donations and despite being positively obsessed with the movie as a toddler. I never knew that the canine cartoon marked a crucial turning points in the history of animation. And one which disney may not have ever made it to the other side of had. The movie not worked out. One hundred and one donations marked walt disney animation studios twenty second full length feature animation having been preceded by classics like snow white. Pinocchio fantasia and peter pan. It began development in the late fifties following the box office bomb of sleeping beauty which took six million dollars to make but only earned back five million sleeping. Beauty used the dominant animation technique of the time that required artists to hand trace drawings on transparent celluloid or sell sheets according to smithsonian magazine reported on this moment in animation history. Disney movies usually have one to two dozen cells per second so in total sleeping. Beauty had almost one million cells. That's one million drawings done and traced by hand a ton of work for a movie that ended up costing the studio a million dollars.

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm naomi lewin. This week in celebration of the christmas season some classical compositions that involve christmas carols in the middle of the nineteenth century. An englishman named william chatterton dix came up with christmasy words. What child is this for the old folk song green sleeves years later when raytheon williams wrote his fantasia on green sleeves. He probably had a pretty good idea that the peace would get played a lot at christmas. Time the fantasia. Green sleeves was originally part of an opera but some pieces of christmas. Carol classical music written to be used in church johann sebastian bach was an excellent organised. Who spent years writing church music. Bach based a whole set of variations on the old german. Carol come mojo known in english as from heaven above earth. I come that same. Carol turns up in auto nikolas christmas overture which even has acquired to sing it. There's another german christmas. Carol in which. Mary sings joseph dearest joseph mine asking joseph for help rocking the baby. Jesus to sleep. Yohannes brahms used that in song. He wrote to honor another baby the son of his good friend joseph or josef in german. Walk him brahms. Like the inside. Joke of the to joseph's and he liked the wonderful tune which he gave to the biala A couple of centuries earlier than brahms was composing in germany mach. One chaperone ta was composing in france. Chaperone ta came up with a whole set of what he called. Carols for instruments. The title of this one is where are those cheerful shepherds headed. One of the top ten favorite christmas carols actually has music by classical composer even though that's not what he wrote it for felix mendelssohn composed a song to celebrate yohannes gutenberg. The man who invented the movable type printing press mendelssohn didn't like the words to that song and told his publisher. He thought the music could be recycled for something else. Maybe a wedding piece but nothing really religious. After mendelssohn died someone in england discovered that the music went perfectly with a poem by charles wesley. The brother of john. Wesley who founded methodism Pieces that use christmas carols were meant to be played at christmas time. Utter reno raspy composed a musical description of three paintings by italian renaissance artist. Sandro botticelli one of those paintings is the adoration of the maj. I in which maj i.

They Call Us The Paper Tigers

"Hello, and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I bill you and I'm Jeff Yang and we are here. With the director and writer of I gotTA. Say just one of my favorite films to have come out this year not just because it hits square and kind of like the intersection of. Sweet spots for me. But also because it really revives John that is kind of synonymous with. They cost Bruce in some ways, and that film is the paper tigers and the filmmaker in question is bow tran. Bow. Thank you for joining us on the PODCAST. Welcome. Hello. Hello. Thanks for having. Me Guess. Big Fan. At. Likewise. No seriously about so this film is basically about a set of martial arts enthusiasts young young guys who have grown up learning under a master. who have kept on growing up as a were. Gotten Kinda midlife and found themselves in a situation where they have to kind of recover the skills that they've lost and like I said for me, it really is just at the intersection of a lot of stuff that I care about and or am. So. Thank you for making it. And Yeah, thank you for talking to us about. My pleasure. Thanks for watching. Really glad to hear you guys enjoy. I let me say like, let me express a little bit of. Sorrow and regret. and sadness on your behalf because. The world being what it is the circumstances being what it is. Many people are going to experience. This movie are not going to experience movie the way I really think they should. Experience it which is with an audience because this is such a fun crowd-pleasing movie We should say like I saw it advertised as a as a martial arts comedy which it is. But it's a bummer that we're not people aren't going to really get to see it in that ideal situation. Yeah I. Mean it's kind of a it's kind of a surreal thing to go through this year with all festivals. Now pivoting to virtual and we had a world premiere couple of weeks ago at Fantasia, which is usually out of Montreal and We did have a zoom QNA afterwards. And is actually fun because it was the first time. The actors saw the movie for the first time and all that and then Cuny was over and I got kicked out of the Zoom Room. There I was sitting in the dark? The World Premiere. Back. But. You know you know we we may do I, mean. That's kind of the way things are, and we just have to Kinda forge on. But Yeah we all had always hoped in envisioned to be able to play this in front of crowd because I think that's kind of like the best experience at least for me growing up as well. Just watching movies that I love. And then be able to kind of bring that. Old old-timey feeling back again. But hopefully, maybe oh Soon soon, enough will be a on our recovery in fields. Kind of have a place when we can share it altogether. I. I kinda figured out what the the genre of this sort of ends up being in white works for me. So well, it's basically old school meets old just. But. I mean these AVIV, the the issue of where we are. Now how this all landing I I will say that. There's something really special about seeing the movie mean it's taken a while to get here and I know this of course, I was fortunate enough smart enough to be early on the bandwagon on this thing asked for it in the kick starter as was Hudson Yang. And Shout shout out. Yeah and it feels a little bit like it's bringing with it. A breath of what it was like before all this happened I. Mean you know we're for me the the things that make the movie just. Feel, special to me is. It's it's the kind of film that you can't really make in quarantine at all. It's film that it's not like a giant. You Know Effects Laden blockbuster, but it has the the effects that you can only do with people are trained and skillful right which is. People finding hand hand. Real. Martial, artists in. Most cases. Who are are going head to head with choreography that you can't hide right there. This does really feel to me and we seen other attempts before. Like A legit revival of that The film right and? I mean I wanted to kind of dig a little into your inspirations and influences in deciding to. Revive this Jonah to begin with. And here a little more about the way this journey started. Yeah I mean I could have imagined. No. You guys have been tracking project for a long time. We've been you know I, I was with Mike Alaska's my producer and we pitched this at the C. Three Project Market V. C. You know twenty eleven in front of like Daniel Day Kim and Desirous Yamashita in. A Teddy Zee. Like nine years ago when I had a one page treatment and it was just like. A hair we are. So I wish I could say we planned it, but we really just got in by Cheney chin-chin in terms of just shooting this film at the at the end of summer last year two, thousand nineteen, and then we were imposed all the way up until you know when the lockdown started happening and all that stuff. So yeah I mean literally is that Snapshot Wife Before. the pandemic and a lot of ways. So it's just it's just kind of worked out that way and if we waited any any additional months or waited, you know in any way to to shoot the film I, don't think we re we would be here having this conversation. Yeah. So it's Kinda trippy looking back on just the timing of it all.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads

"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

Plenity is the New Weight Loss Drug in Town. Does It Work?

"Today I've got an advanced look at a newly approved weight-loss drug that's GonNa be coming onto the market this year nutrition diva listener. John recently asked me to weigh in on a new. FDA FDA approved weight-loss drug called jealous one hundred. The drug is not yet available to the public. But it'll probably be coming onto the market very soon as as a prescription only drug under the brandname plenty. I bet it's going to be hard to miss it when it does become available because there's probably going to be a huge advertising and marketing push but is this new drug going to be the one that turns the tide against obesity. Previous pharmaceutical approaches to weight loss. Have all had major drawbacks stimulants. Like fantasia mean are quite effective in suppressing appetite for example but they can be habit forming not to mention that Paschi side effective occasionally stopping your heart other drugs such as Orla stat are somewhat effective in blocking the absorption of fat and calories from boots which can be helpful unfortunately they also block the absorption of some fat soluble nutrients not mentioned a rather embarrassing side affect requiring frequent changes of underwear. This new drug takes a different approach that avoids the worst of these side effects. It's it's designed to reduce your food intake by making you feel like you've had more to eat than you actually have so the drug is made from two compounds. That occur naturally in foods foods cellulose and citric acid. You swallow three capsules with a big glass of water before meals and the capsules released particles in your stomach stomach which rapidly absorbed the water and expand to form a harmless GEL. This GEL has no calories but it takes up a fair amount of space in your stomach and your intestines and with less room in your stomach. The idea is you'll eat less and then you'll lose some weight. How well does it work well? In a clinical trial people who used plenty and also followed a reduced Calorie Diet and exercise moderately lost more weight. On average than in those who reduced calories exercised and took a placebo about twenty percent of the people in both groups dropped out before the end of the trial which was scheduled to last about six months months of those who completed the entire six months. The group taking planete lost about six percent of their weight while the group taking a placebo lost is just about four percent so you could say that people taking the drug lost fifty percent more weight than people taking the placebo and that sounds really impressive. However the actual weight loss was pretty modest in both groups? The group taking plenty lost an average of fourteen pounds while the placebo group lost an average average of ten pounds. So we're only talking about an extra four pounds over the course of six months and just as a reminder everybody was also oh reducing calories and exercising now even though the people who were taking planete didn't lose a whole lot more weight than the people who didn't it is certainly possible that they found it a little bit easier to stick to their diets because maybe they didn't feel as hungry. Unfortunately the researchers didn't report on things like perceived hunger or how difficult the subjects founded to stick to their diets they did assess safety and side effects. That's a big part of getting your drug rug approved and there were no big concerns about safety but the group taking the drug definitely did report more side effects than the group who were taking the placebo and most of these side effects were digestive symptoms like diarrhoea or bloating gas constipation or abdominal pain. But most of these were considered mild mild in severity. There are some non-pharmaceutical ways to make your stomach feel fuller researcher. Barbara Roles also has popularized an approach known as volume metrics. And the idea. Here is to choose foods that have a lot of volume but not too many calories primarily merrily these are foods that contain a lot of fluid or a lot of fiber so soups brought whole vegetables and fruits whole grains that sort of thing even just drinking a full glass of plain water before meals has been shown to decrease food intake these volume metric foods triggers special cells in your stomach that register pressure or fullness and this then sends a signal to your brain that you've had enough to eat presumably this feature is designed to prevent us from eating until our stomachs literally explode but because these volume metric foods and liquids. Don't contain a lot of calories. You end up reducing your calorie intake and losing weight. It's basically the same concept as plenty. Only it involves healthy foods instead of

Sometimes a fantasy became the beginning of a whole sweet in the nineteenth century. Instead of making up the melodies themselves composers posers started to build fantasies out of pre existing tunes. Max Bruch used folk tunes.

Hindi Hinchey lingerie or fantasia for gentlemen French composer Marceta grown Shawnee took a bit of melody from a Haydn Symphony and wrote a fantasy for harp the granddaddy of all fantasies is one by Beethoven who love up to break musical rules. It used to be that fantasies were just for instruments. Beethoven started out this fantasy with the piano But he wound up having an orchestra and chorus join in in her in spite of the fact that the pianist does most of the work.
