Decriminalizing The War On Drugs
"In the summer of nineteen seventy one president richard. Nixon declared a so-called. You're on drugs. But i consider this problem so urgent. I also found that it was scattered so much throughout the government with so much conflict without coordination that it had to be brought into the white house so that we have not only the responsibility but the authorities to see that we wages defensive effectively an coordinated way the goal was to curb the use of illicit substances by levying increased. Police presence classifying a number of drugs at the federal level and by making longer prison sentences. Mandatory for the use and distribution of narcotics nearing the fiftieth anniversary of that decision. The war on drugs is still very much alive. Millions of people have been incarcerated from windows policing and the advent of stop and frisk to no knock warrants and the militarization of local police departments. All of this born from the so called war on drugs and all have been used primarily target communities of color advocates for reform have long that punitive policies have not only failed to reduce the flow of drugs across the country but also strengthen illicit drug markets creating risky and unhealthy conditions for people who choose to use drugs. Meanwhile more than seventy thousand people died last year alone as a result of drug. Overdoses is clearly failing in the war on drugs and advocates. Say it's because we've gone about it completely. The wrong way by focusing on the criminal element of drug use instead of seeing it through the lens of healthcare access and social justice to talk about this issue. We're joined by muddied sep it is. Who's the director of the national affairs at the drug policy alliance in washington d. c. leads the organization's federal work to end the war on drugs. Mighty snap is welcome to letting you. usa inc you. I'm so excited to be here with you today. So recently a lot has been happening with drug decriminalization but before we get into that. Let's take a few steps back and you know. Set the picture for how we got to this place and this is a place where for example someone could be caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and they could be sentenced to spend the rest of their life in prison in some parts of the country. Still yes sadly. That's the case. Drug enforcement continues to be a driver of mass incarceration. In fact one person is arrested every twenty three seconds for simple drug possession so it continues to be a a big feeder into not just the criminal justice system but you have to think of all of the collateral consequences for instance a conviction can make it harder for you to put your life back on track to go to school to obtain even get a job in the first place to keep a roof over your head to feed your family so it continues to be something. That is a huge detriment. In a lot of people's lives many drugs that are illegal today such as marijuana opium coca psychedelics if unused for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes but we also know that this country has a long history of pech waiting racialized drug war. I think something that a lot of people might not know is that the first anti-drug laws in the united states were actually built specifically to criminalize people of color. Starting with the eighteen seventies we saw laws targeting chinese immigrants in california. This is the first time we saw anti opium laws pop around. Are you saying that basically opium was around and used once you had the arrival of men and women from china who were actually working on the railroad that that's when it becomes a problem. Yeah so what. We started to see around. the eighteen. Hundreds was that anti drug laws started to pop up. Civically created to target certain communities of color and the eighteen seventies saw the rise of the first anti-drug laws in those drugs were anti opium laws that were targeted at chinese immigrants. Soon after that in the nineteen hundreds in the south we saw that mccain became illegal in that was related target african american men Who were using the substance and then of course in the nineteen thirties. That mexican mexican americans were criminalised for marijuana use. Of course you know when we talk about. Marijuana can't ignore the fact that marijuana itself was a term that was developed to criminalise mexican americans and mexicans who were who were using the plant and this happened with the first individual who was responsible for drug enforcement in the us but these were all intentional decisions by the government to criminalise communities of color to really dejected. People who were not wanted in the society and you know unfortunately those policy decisions still play out today because drug use continues to be something that there is a lot of hysteria around and people of color continued to be disproportionately enforced for drug use and drug activity even though all the data tells us that black and brown individuals use drugs at similar rates and sometimes even lower rates than white individuals.
Dance Theatre of Harlem Takes Ballet Outside The Theater
"Let's get back to ballet dancers. Alexandra hutchinson and derek brockton. They're part of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company and co produced the viral video dancing through harlem also with this virginia johnson. She's the dance theatre of harlem artistic director. We got this message from brandy in maryland. I tina and i took ballet from about the time. I was four or five time i was twelve. I ended up having to quit because of the cost of valet lessons. But the thing that resonates for me is that many years later as an adult. I remember seeing alvin ailey performed for the first time and thinking my goodness if i had known that there were people like this people like me. Look like me who were doing ballet and other forms of dance. I might have thought really differently about what was possible for me as a dancer both in terms of where i could go even for dances a career but also in terms of relation to my party And thinking always that. I didn't have the right body to be a ballet dancer or i was too sick or too heavy. Thanks so much for sharing your story brandy alley any of what brandy said resonate with you. Yes it does It's so important to have role models to look up to when you're growing up so when i was at the washington school of ballet. I was at the virginia johnson scholar and i got to meet with her and i was introduced to some of the company and saw performance. And i still remember that to this day. Because it's so important when you're growing up to see that it is possible to achieve your dreams and so seeing other beautiful dancers. That look like me on stage was all i needed to give me that that push not courage to do it myself. You know for many children particularly little girls. There's this pervasive image of ballerinas very small and thin and pale and t and sort of graceful delicate whistle but as we said or dancers are are athletes. You're crazy strong and muscular derrick. Talk about some of the misconceptions surrounding ballet. And how maybe there's some subconscious racism or sexism at play there. There absolutely is a little bit. We find in ballet thought. It is about tradition so there are things that have been done a certain way for a very long time and when people see things that do not fit that norm it can. It can be fearful for them. That's the word because they're not used to it so seeing brown dancer in a line of all these a white ones it throws those but we opt to kind of kings perspective and no. There's nothing terrible read about it. It's just not what we're used to. And we have to accommodate that. It's a representation really really matters. And that's why i feel this video. Dancing do harlem has done so well because it is really offering so many people an opportunity to see themselves doing something that maybe they haven't seen before. I know we only have the two of you for another minute before. You have to go to rehearsal but alexandra very quickly talk about how art form is is giving you space to comment on reflect on some of the social justice questions that have arisen in the past few months yes So social justice is an issue today as it was when arthur mitchell founded the company fifty one years ago and so when we were given the task to create a video for harlem week we really wanted to set the bar really high and do our best because we knew that through social media you can reach so many more people and like virginia was saying earlier we now have to learn to put out social media instead of live performance. And so that's why we put our heart and soul into it because we knew that our is can be a form of protest and so showing places of harlem that people haven't necessarily seen in a beautiful light and dancing and being joyful in a time of so much tragedy Can bring people hope. That's alexandra hutchinson derek brockton. They're both members of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company. They co produce dancing through harlem in part to celebrate the theatre's fiftieth anniversary alley. And derek. i gotta get to class so we'll let you go but thanks for joining us. Thank you for having us. Thank you so much for having

Interview with Pete Evanow
"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter I'm here today with Pete Evans. I'm glad you could join us. Hello Pete is the author of Nissan's e fifty years of exhilarating performance. It was just published this year by motor books an imprint of Corto press I'm here to tell you I have the book and hand and among all of the recent automotive publications this one really stands apart congratulations on a great project pay. Thank you very much I. really appreciate that it was a labor of love I put it together fairly quickly. Because it was something that Nissan jumped on board at a last minute decision was interesting being really did make a big deal out of the twenty fifth anniversary and I don't know why. But it didn't really occur to them to do much about the fiftieth anniversary. Then all of a sudden somebody internally said we have to and that was Hiroshi Mariah. They got in touch with their licensing agency, which is emi and EMI contact and motor books motor books. Contacted me because I had written an earlier version of thirty fifth anniversary, and so we put this together really in a little less than a year. Notice. The forward is by Hiroshi tomorrow and obviously had a hand in recognizing that fifty years of Zina's as you call it Pete. You've got kind of an interesting career. Obviously, you're Z. Aficionado, but you're also a professor in the Department of Communications Cal State Fullerton probably as we talk about your book about. The history of the Z. Cars will maybe get into a little bit of the market speak that went along with essentially introducing a whole car a whole new concept to a whole new audience. That is the North American audience for whom a sports car from Japan was a brand new unthinkable concept back in nineteen seventy. I know this isn't your first. Z.. Car Rodeo either because it published Z thirty, five years of Nissan Sports car in two, thousand five. It's hard to imagine that the name plate is as old as it is for its thirty fifth anniversary. There was some pretty exciting things happening to but I guess related start at the beginning. Let's go back and look Z. Legacy from the start you and I are old enough to remember that back in the sixties and early seventies Japanese cars were by enlarge disregard I'm being charitable I'd say joke in some ways but they were no joke because of course Honda and Toyota essentially took over their respective markets and Dotson did the same but really the only sports car we had back in the sixties was the Toyota two. Thousand and that was such a rare esoteric piece of work that it almost doesn't count. Nissan did try. They had a sixteen hundred little sports car was a little convertible started as a sixteen hundred. They call it the fair lady in Japan of course, and then they brought it over here to the US, and then it became a slightly larger motor and they had it with the two liter the colored, the two thousand by remember that two thousand. Well, a friend of mine had a Canary Yellow One and I thought it was an amazing thing. It was right up there with any MGB, except that it was more reliable and. A grey little competitive car and Peter Brock raised it. So did Bob Sharp on the East Coast and so that kind of really established footprint if you will for Nissan at least from a motor sports standpoint and it gave them some credibility and it really provided the power I guess internally to look at a genuine sports car hardtop version and you can always thank Mr k. you talk Yama who pushed that card the Z. initially and he was here in America as the president of Nissan, USA and he went back to Japan. And we really have to have a sports car that is affordable and is something that everyone can afford here in the United States, and so he basically got the idea of democratising a sports car. You mentioned the Toyota two thousand GT was an incredible car but didn't really have the legs to expand. They didn't really bring it over here in significant quantities and it was a very expensive car as opposed to little roadsters. Remember Papa Bondra used to thousands for his driving school they were so good and reliable and relatively inexpensive the. Toyota was essentially unaffordable and it was fragile and even though it did a little bit of racing there just wasn't enough critical mass to really make it stick. Nissan. Really wanted to be the first to come in their Honda was here but they made really small throwaway cars to begin with them shoebox as I think the only thing smaller was at Subaru three sixty that looked like an egg with. Wales. And Nissan was ahead of their time of course, they were called Dotson then but they came out with their to forty and. Late sixty nine, but they also had a pickup truck and so those were two key markets that they used to go after slightly different audiences. But that's how they penetrated the US market at least initial. So many times a great name plate like the to forty comes about because of the vision of a single person or a tight team and you talk about the talk cut yama or Mr K. Katayama. Son was obviously an interesting guy and he must have been doing something. Right? He lived to be one hundred, five years old. That's a remarkable thing in and of itself you speak very fondly of in your book can you give us a little insight into what it took to get his own corporate colleagues superiors to buy into his crazy idea as a sports car for America I think you just a force and he just had such incredible passion. I had the pleasure of meeting with him several times and you'd him not only for my previous book but also speaking to him in several the Zekan's and car shows I mean he was very passionate. Loved people. As they said in his slogan Love Life Love People, you couldn't not like him I hate double negative but the fact is, is that I believe that his passion. and his persuasive skills were partially enough to demonstrate that he could sell this car United States and I think that's what it talked to convince his contemporaries, his colleagues in Japan that if he could have the opportunity to bring the Z. here in America, he would show them that that was the right car at the right time and he would be successful with it and they believed they were a little skeptical his colleagues in Japan but they obviously invested in the car and said, okay now it's up to you and your colleagues to make sure that this happens and it did
Trump downplays legacy of slavery and embraces white supremacy
"Donald Trump intensified efforts to appeal to his core base of white voters on Thursday by downplaying the historical legacy of slavery in the United States and blasting efforts to address his stomach racism as divisive. The president's comments marking the two hundred and thirty third anniversary of the signing of the constitution amounted to a defense of white culture and denunciation of Democrats the media and others who he accused of trying to indoctrinate school children and shame their parents whiteness. He also argued that America's founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished Slavery Secured Civil Rights defeated Communism and fascism and builds the most fair equal and prosperous nation in human history. But he did not mention the two, hundred, forty, six years of slavery. In America including the eight thousand nine years it was allowed to continue after the colonies declared independence from England nor did the president acknowledged the ongoing fight against racial injustice and police brutality which has prompted months of protests. This year trump has long fanned the nation's culture wars including defending the display of the confederate battle flag and monuments of civil war rebels from protest is seeking their removal. He speech on Thursday suggested his rhetoric could become even more nationalistic. In the final weeks before the election given that he's off to a second term relies largely on energizing culturally conservative white voters trump already cracked down on anti racism training sessions in federal agencies he said on Thursday, he will soon sign an order to establish a commission to promote patriotic education dubbed the seventeen seventy, six commission. The panel he said we'll be tossed with encouraging educators to teach students about the miracle of American history and plan for the Commemoration of the two hundred fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of independence. The move is a response to the New, York Times Sixteen nineteen projects, which highlights the long term consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans Nicole? Hannah. Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for a piece in the magazine in response to trump's remarks Hannah Jones said the First Amendment to the constitution opposed government attempts to censor speech and guarantees free press the efforts by the president of the United States to use his palace to censor. Of American journalism by dictating what schools can and cannot teach what American children should and should not learn should be deeply alarming to all Americans who value free speech she said.
The March ON Washington, 57 Years Later
"Hello I'm Deborah Roberts those images from today an echo of something fifty seven years ago when a quarter of a million people I descended on the nation's capital protesting for jobs and freedom. On today's anniversary of Dr Martin Luther. King Junior's I have a dream speech we at twenty twenty or proud to present the march a documentary directed by Jonah Comfort and narrated by Denzel Washington originally made in twenty thirteen to commemorate the Marches Fiftieth Anniversary. Some of those voices sadly are now gone, but their legacy lives on. I have had to tell my children about the segregates what it means. Seven year old daughter she wanted to go from town. And we found it necessary to explain to That she couldn't go to fun town because she was colored. To attempt to explain a system like unjust and. Segregation. Six year old child is very difficult thing. In nineteen sixty three. The Movement for civil rights came to the most segregated city in the American. South. Birmingham Alabama. All. Resistant to the gration. Thoroughly, segregated. City the United States. had. More on saw on. WILL HOMES ENSURE A. United. States. Many other southern city. Okay. Birmingham is bombing him. They have quarries and conducting the quarry business you used dynamite. So there are a lot of local people who are expert in Isa Dynamic. Teenage. Board riding a bicycle had been knocked off the bike and castrated. Young couple had gone to the City Hall to get a wedding license. Came around the corner. And Brush shoulders with Birmingham policeman and he pulled out his pistol and pistol whipped the more to the ground. It was a horrible heinous place. The campaign was to be led by the organisation's Ben Thirty four year old leader. The Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Junior. WHO HEARD PEOPLE? who except in dusted oppression and second-class citizenship. in an attempt waiting go the Paul Pompidou. The time all we ripe to do right. Dr King was the voice of Civil Rights from the bus boycott on but by the end of nineteen, sixty, two, he recognized. That the civil rights movement. was. Losing what he called its window and history. The. South was still segregated and he said we need to take more of a risk. We need to go for broke I need to go for broke. I think he felt that. We have to be willing to give our lives to put an end to segregation. If we do. Then segregation will end even if we die. That was the reason he chose. Birmingham. For the victory won some even have to face physical death. We must come to see the now some things. So eternally true that they're worth dying for, and if a man has not discovered something that he will die for he fit live. In January of Nineteen, sixty three. One man was determined to stop kings desegregation message from spreading any further. Birmingham's police chief Eugene. Bull Connor. Negro is off the attempted takeover of our country the lazy. The beat nate, the ignorant and buy some misguided religious and bleeding ought. Do, you think you can keep coming in the present situation of segregation I may not be able to do it, but I'll die trying. Overcoming Bull Connor segregationists zeal not to mention his jails would take something special. And in the winter of sixty, three king would find out just how special that effort needed to be. Spent all of January February and March nineteen sixty three training people to accept nonviolence to go down into marches and be willing to go into bull connor's jails. But. Conner's jails were so fearsome that no matter how much they exhorted people no matter how many freedom songs they sang, how many prayers they prayed, how much fervor there was in the meetings, people wouldn't show up to risk going into those jails.
talkin' 'bout Our Generation
"Those of you who are already part of the talking about our generation family. Welcome back for those of you or a new to our podcast. Welcome. This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the. Haight Ashbury for Woodstock monory pop I just happened to be at the right place at the right time with her husband and while I was traveling around in my hippy bus. We have this big giant hippy bus fixed up in the second Alec I still drive it today. It's out of my driveway. I was able to have a dark room in the bus so I was always printing developing and. I was able to. Share those with other people and I felt it was important to show her how beautiful the hippies were in what their ideas were back to the land and natural childbirth eating good food and recycling, and all those values that are so important today were started in sixties. So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune. Have A ranch up in late in Ville. and. They still run campaign rainbow with Wavy gravy and Johanna Raw. Their commune lasted because. They. Really worked at. Her cat show there the they went to woodstock. got. What happened was? Wavy was. Living. Down at the bottom of this tale in Tonga with his wife and the pranksters with can Keesey came. And they stayed overnight with him. They were in the bus in the morning the owner said, get out all these people. And just at that point, there was a Fellow up the hill ahead a hog farm. And he had a heart attack. And he asked them if they would come up and slop hogs. So the whole group of. Wavy in his few people and then the pranksters all went up to the top of the mountain there and slop hogs. Okay. So they had some shacks they build some marsh actually had two buses that we're living in the buses and they all they would go out and get jobs. In comeback bring the money and they all live community
Orca who carried her dead calf for 1,000 miles is pregnant
"Pregnancies are good news for the southern resident killer whales and right now, it looks like there are three whales including j thirty five who could give birth. But there's a long way to go today. We're GONNA talk about the lives of these orcas and our complicated relationship with them here to do that with us is Linda makes she's the environment reporter at the Seattle Times Linda. Thanks for joining us. Thank you, Trish. So give us a quick recap on J. Thirty five for people who weren't here maybe when her calf died. So J thirty five or Takuma really is the ORCA whale who changed the conversation about this very small population of whales and very sadly trish as I talked to today that population is even smaller than it was two years ago when she gave birth to a female calf and it live for only one half hour, and then she did something that scientists know these animals do as well as other, very, highly intelligent. Socially, bonded animals they grieve and she just refused to let that baby go. Now, this calf is probably six feet. Long weighs about three hundred pounds, and for seventeen days, she just refused to let it go and she had to decide to retire. She went down for breath to pick it up once again and carry it some more, and it really did touch the hearts. People around the world and even though these southern resident orcas have been listed as dangerous since two thousand and five. Suddenly people really did understand for the first time, just how fragile they are, and the fact that these aren't just random black and white wildlife. These are families with very, very close bonds. And why do you think that we feel so attached to these orca because I grew up in the Eighties and Wales were such a big deal. You know every girl had little whale necklace and why do we feel so attached I'm gonNA, make a sound for you inherit comes. That is sound of a whale breathing. They are mammals like us, and that's sound when you hear it, it's like a sound from the beginning of the world. It's It's a magnificent presence to be with these whales and you and you understand as you observe their family bond says, you see the way they take care of one another. You know they're so superior to people they. They have brilliant diplomacy. They share space in the ocean without ever warring or committing any acts of aggression against one another. They've families together for life. It's really quite remarkable and they've been around don't forget this for six million years as a species. So these are in every way our elders and mentors for how to run a successful society and don't forget this. They were doing just fine until we showed up. How do we raise up the cause of the ORCA of the environment here without doing the thing that we tend to do a lot of as humans, which is just the help that hurts, how do we walk that line? Actually, this is easier than ever I mean, let's remember how we got to know these southern resident whales. Well, it was the capture era which by the way was not that long ago. Free, willy. Oh. Yeah. Anybody could go out and catch themselves a killer whale for an aquarium or for that matter, sell it for profit anouar in the world until as recently as are you ready Nineteen, seventy six. So wow, that's really recent. Recent and the only while who've had survived that time is still alive and she's still at the Miami Seaquarium and the fiftieth anniversary of her capture and Penn cove is on August seventh. Wow. This is recent time and ironically it was through seeing these so-called killer whales up close in captivity and realizing their incredible intelligence and they're gentle personalities that people went through a whole change in their understanding about these animals and today they're not only revered but protected and I said it's easier than ever to love these animals without loving them to death God look at what you can watch the documentary footage that's out there to enjoy these animals is so much. Better than anything that has ever been available. The amount of knowledge we have about them is superb growing by the day and you know you can watch them from shore. The idea that you need to spend the money by the way and get on a boat. Go after them. You know that's not the only way to enjoy these whales and I think that it's important to. Show some restraint and also some respect for their space. So. J thirty five is pregnant. Again, this is a good sign but two thirds of pregnancies in this population are lost. I learned this lesson with birds in my backyard last year in a nest so. This is not the time for a baby shower. We have a long way to go here. That's so well said. I would think about it. This way this time to hold space for these oils to hold them in your mind and think about what you can do to help whether it's something that might feel small but adds up such as be involved in local land use decisions in your community. That's where all this getting decided about how much of the puget sound lowlands we retain and how much we pay of over. You know these tedious things that we don't think matter like Oh, the king, county flood control district. Well, you know what they're up to. They're thinking about the future of the Green. River. which is upstream from the Duwamish, the green flows into the duwamish Seattle's only river. It's very important Salmon River for the whales and so things like paying attention to what's the local flood district doing what is going on in my local community? By Way of development? All of these things make a difference especially if all of us do. and. Read learn about these animals become informed. Educate Yourself. You know there are lots of ways to get involved and stay involved and play heart in whether. Tele. Calf actually. Does get born and does survive. To me, that's our work song as a region. May Her next calf with? So J thirty five. How will scientists track her pregnancy? Will very remotely fortunately. The scientists who do this work are John, Durbin? And Holly Fehrenbach, and they're they're a team of scientists who came up with a new method. using drones to photograph these Wales from at least one hundred, few of them and remote Louis activated. So they're far from the whales. So nowhere near them, the whales don't seem to show any notice of these drums when they're flying. And they take suspect hack your pictures, and there's something about the angle from above That's very different from a boat. You can see not only the shape of the whales. You can watch their behavior, their families. I. Make It takes your breath away and it is an entirely new view of the lives of these Wales and when it comes to keep track of j thirty five and the other pregnant whales. They're going to do is take another peek in September. DID THEY FATTEN UP? Did they pump up or are they going into winter in good shape? Are they look stressed or are they looking skinny? Most importantly with regard to her? Is She nice fat around? They'd like to see her a lot rounder in September than she is now for early in her pregnancy, these whales carry their babies, believe it or not for eighteen eighteen months Linda I read that and I thought. Oh. My Gosh Holy. Mackerel A. And actually then the real work starts because they've got to feed not only themselves, but they've got a lactate and that's a very, very high fat milk. So she's got her work cut out for her so they'll immature September and we will all cross our fingers that she's even bigger. And then you know she's either. Going to be carrying another kappa which time. I, don't know what I'll do. Or, we'll see her romping with a baby. You know We'll see what happens next I. do think that we ought to kind of hold our breath. A little bit chances are are high that things won't go well, but it doesn't mean that she couldn't surprise us and we might have some more good news. Let's remember there have been two berths to southern residents and let's remember Linda are bar for hope, is pretty low. Sleep. Vote through. Isn't it for the? Thought, I'd get a good peach these days and I'm just thrilled. Good Peach. Tomato. I'm good.
Mars Is The Place To Go This Summer
"Okay Joe Palca. We are talking missions to Mars. Let's start with the United Arab Emirates which launched its probe two weeks ago. As you said, this is the country's first mission to Mars Yup and the probe is called hope and it will arrive in twenty twenty, one and twenty twenty one is a big year for the U. E. as I'm sure you know Emily Kwong I do not Joe Palca, but you're going to tell me why, yes, I am a because it's the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the UAE which was established in nineteen seventy one. So the morality leadership was eager to do something. Something to celebrate and a mission to Mars seemed like a great idea, Joe, that is a pretty splashy birthday present. Yes. That's what I was hoping for my fiftieth birthday, but I didn't get it. But seriously, that's just one of the reasons that they were going to Mars, it's partly to celebrate, but I talked Sarah Murray the deputy project manager and science lead for the emerets Mars mission. The purpose was not only to get to Mars by twenty twenty one and have vowed scientific. Data coming out of the mission that is unique nature and no other mission has captured before. But more importantly, it was about developing the capabilities and capacity of engineers in the country. Interesting. Yeah. Sarah says that the country's leaders wanted the you A. to develop a more of a knowledge-based economy and building a Mars probe provided a focus for expanding the country's technological capabilities. Okay. So Sarah mentioned the unique nature of this mission. Joe Tell me about the probe and what it is designed to do. It's about the size of a small car in weighs about a ton and a half, and it has these solar panels that look like wings essentially an and when they're spread out, it's about twenty four feet wide and when it goes to, Mars it will go into a really unusual elliptical orbit that will take essentially over every point on Mars. Once a week, it's providing us with full understanding of the changes, the weather of, Mars. Throughout an entire Martian day and throughout all the seasons of Morris throughout an entire Martian year, which lasts roughly two earth years. Wow. So they're really trying to get a comprehensive picture of the Martian atmosphere right and it's not just over time. Here's David Brain. He's part of a team of scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder collaborating on the emerets Mars mission. The three instruments that are on the space craft will help us measure the atmosphere of Mars from the surface, all the way to space. which has really been done before with other missions and that's very cool. All right. Joe, I know that China's mission to Mars has been a bit shrouded in secrecy. Here's what we know that it's name is teen win one which means questions to heaven. But one of the most notable things about it is that it includes an orbiter, a lander Andrew Rover. So a spacecraft that orbits the planet can land on it and move across the surface. Right? Well, it's really it's got three parts. It's all pushed together for the trip there, but then they separate. The orbiter of course stays in orbit and does remote sensing of the planet, and also will serve as a radio relay station for the mission on the surface, and then they'll these two things together, Land Rover, and then the rover will drive down a ramp and explore around the landing site. So it's an interesting mission, and I think it's a little hard to say China is not obviously in the same category as. As NASA terms of look what we did look over here, look do this we you know there there are a little more circumspect about how they do their missions. But the scientists I've talked to say this is a very serious interesting probe and it puts China in a really interesting position because only one country has successfully landed and roved round on Mars. Can you guess which country that is Russia? Now it's a It's the U S. of course, Russia did actually land a probe. It's a question of whether to call it a success or not because it only sends signals back for a few seconds. So technical success, I guess but not a very interesting mission.

Huey: The Workhorse of Vietnam Exhibit
"Thought we'd We'd make you switch seats and Hanson and roles in everything Chris and talk about this new. One of one of the new exhibits that's gone into the museum, but a new aircraft for us. It is I'm really excited. It's something that as a rudder head. I've kind of been wanting to see the museum acquire for the last several years, but we were able to. Get A U H One Huey helicopter Totally, excited to see that come in and I I know we're going to get into a lot of the the Riviera of but It was exciting to see it. get trailer it on into us. Well, that's cool, and that of course happened in the midst of all the complications around around covert and those other restrictions, so we'll talk about that in a bit, too, but interesting to me that just with the passage of time with our museum This is something that we have an eagle hangar has traditionally been the venue, or we talk about military history, and we have our warbirds and other artifacts and things. That's been largely focused on World War Two since the advent of the museum, but we've seen F eighty six, an megan there periodically touching into Korea. Thomas More Scout, that sort of his edge, and there's going to cover World War One but this is really our first four into Vietnam, isn't it? Is it is? This is the first aircraft that we have from the Vietnam era Interestingly enough if you go back several years sort of on the gate guard side of things. We actually had a couple sky, raiders, and those are actually on different military bases. Now they were on loan to us but this is the first true aircraft donation to artifact that that we have in in the museum. Proper here and It's really exciting to see that come in because. You know when you if you look back. When Eagle. Hangar was built it was you know it was opened in the nineties, You know. It's about the fiftieth anniversary of world. War Two turn. Now you know were We're focusing never GONNA lose that focus of the World War Two generation that always going to be something special but we are broadening the horizons a bit to make sure we're. Live of experience excellent. Yeah, absolutely excellent, so then I suppose the first obvious question here is. Where did the idea for the Huey Exhibit? Come from was something that you know we've been looking at for a while. And the right opportunity came up or was this sort of a newer like we really need to. Branch out a little bit and feature this part of history as well It's something that that personally I've been pushing for a couple years. I joined the museum team that I think we need to get get a healy and and there are several reasons why that aircraft Early well. We have a Our Museum director is Huey pilot, so it wasn't hard to. To Sell Ron on the idea of. Like, we should have a you hit owed. He's like well. That sounds good to me. Who flew those? Which is true? Yes, exactly exactly, you're listening. So, it was very Once I came back with. Hey, there's more to it than just getting Hughie You know there's a lot of programming that comes with that we could do. There's a lot of artifact display that we could do love storytelling. And I think once once we all sat down and we really took a hard look at it rather than just a the perspective of boy. Wouldn't it be nice to have one We really got into what we could do with it. I think it was. It was kind of obvious we should we should. Try and get one.

We say we royally. We are here with. With Roger Nygaard today who you may remember if you've listened to the entire show, you were the guest for our eighth episode. Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap.

"The fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock there's a lot of great trivia around that landmark festival including that. It was only the second concert by a quartet known as Crosby Stills. Nash and yell. Two. She'll sound the sweet harmonies would become the band's signature. But that's about as far as the Coon by extended offstage CNN y was as a new book about the band puts it rocks longest running soap opera, Neil young was in then out, and that's cycle. Repeated David Crosby had addiction issues. Stephen stills was really ambitious and Graham Naseem to just want to write some songs, but that just scratches the surface for the full telling of the band in its history, you could turn to the new book Crosby Stills Nash and young the wild definitive saga of rock's greatest supergroup its authors. The venerable music journalist and author Rolling Stone senior writer, David Brown. David Hale's, how are you? So you've written a lot of Jeff Jeff, and Tim Buckley, even about the dead sonic, youth even written about CSM. Why what made you want to go back in and go for the dive? Well, I've been following this August since I was a teenager, you know, and got into this music. And there hasn't really been much written about them in book form before and hasn't been book on them in a long time. And as you say I mean as we were approaching the fiftieth anniversary of not just what's with their first album. And all that it really kind of hit me that my God. This is like the longest running musical dysfunctional musical family. There's really nothing like it around. And we still have the stones with us and making Keith feuding and all that stuff once in a while. But you know, there's nothing quite like the dance that these guys have been doing with each other for over fifty years. Now combines a lot of great records, which is what brought me to begin with. But when you combine the the harmony on the record with the, you know, the constant Tomo drama offstage as a writer. That's a hard thing to resist four hundred eighteen pages, and it goes right up until fall two thousand eighteen I mean, it really is. Right up to the to the edge has it been dysfunctional that whole time, you know, it it has. That's the short answer to that. You know, they have a pattern. They kind of get together. They find that common ground kind of musically. And personally, they create that sort of magic. And then for whatever number reasons, they get pulled apart again, and they go in their separate ways. And then they come back again, and is kind of currying cycle. And what's interesting is that each time, though, something dynamic in the group has changed and one of the other one is more of a leader or the culture around them changes, which is one of the things I also tried to explore in the book, you know, when they got together the last time with four them with two thousand six Neil Young's idea to do. He just put out now, I'm living with war, which was his anti George Bush, George W Bush songs about all that the wreck war and having back then and he reconvened the group the four of them they go onto or they play these new songs of Neal's including like once called. Let's impeach the president. And you think the audience would be with them? With not always, you know, as I write a book. I mean, they were couple of shows down south where people were booing and these were their peers if people their age, and it was a sign of again, how how the culture changed around them. So there's there's there was a lot to kind of contextual with them as well. When you start the book, you write about how it's on this night and Valentine's Day, and and the world the Vietnam war is going on in the backdrop and just for a night. People are inside this club just counting wanting to forget how difficult and horrific things were out in the world. But before they got together before that night, they were all in different bands. Can you can you give us the landscape, absolutely? As my book title says they were called supergroup, and they were probably the first group to have that moniker. Put on them. David Crosby had been in the birds, and it just been kicked out before. Stephen stills was one of the co leaders along with Neil young of buffalo, Springfield who had just broken up themselves. Few months before that Graham Nash was still in the hollies one of the preeminent, British pop groups and all of them were not just different personalities different musical backgrounds. You know stills was more of a kind of ridiculous music blues folk rock thing Crosby, jazz background. Nash was more of a pop thing. But yeah, somebody wants asked me, well, what brought these guys together to begin with. But one of these answers unemployment they need work work. So stills Crosby started to come together. I and that wasn't quite the right mix. They were missing something Cass Elliot of the mamas in the Papa suggested Graham, Nash, Shushi, new and all kind of it all kind of came together. But yeah, they all came from very different musical cultural backgrounds, and yet, you know, in the moment in time, they all kind of found that that common musical language and you throw Joni Mitchell, and they're so Joni Mitchell who was. You know, they they still argue to this day as where they I really saying together which would have been in the summer of sixty eight and Crosby and Nash insist it was a Joni Mitchell's house. And steals insists it wasn't mama Cass his house because he'd never would have someone of songs in front of Joni Mitchell who too intimidating Tim. So to this day, they still, you know, they're not a group. But as of recently, they still break into or out into arguments as to where they were when that moment happens. So yes, there was tumbled from the beginning. You could say in that regard. My guess is David Brown. The name of his new book is Crosby Stills Nash and young the wild definitive saga of rock's greatest supergroup were they constantly trying to make a supergroup at the time. That's a good question. I mean, the concept didn't really exist. I think they were just looking for different some kind of different mutual combinations. To enhance each other. You know Crosby. I think felt the birds were maybe a little too stiff, and and Nash wanted something a little more Mike trippy psychedelic perhaps in the hollies. And so I think they were just thinking along those lines, although when they got like, some high-powered managers, and and you know, all that soon became apparent that yet that that they could be and the fact that they use their names was the first sign of that two coupes that time use their names now. Faith blind faith. And and yeah, even the blind faith was the only other competing supergroup with Clapton and Steve winwood, but they had a group name. And these guys they insisted in the beginning. It would be their names. So they could go off and do whatever they wanted. They weren't going to be we're going to break all the rules. That was whole thing from the beginning. We're not gonna do what everyone's done before. We're gonna break EV each and every will including one of the things about my favorite one of my favorite songs. Seven minutes and twenty four seconds long. Blue is just because I like it. Anybody was ever this jockey knows that.
