Fresh "Five Years" from Gardening Naturally with John Dromgoole

"Really liked. And I put it in a container that it would bring in every year Now. I didn't necessarily bring it in for the entire winter. I would check and see what the weather was going to be in if we had a risk of a freeze. I would bring that peppery and then make sure didn't freeze I through the same separated container for five years and produced wonderfully. It was a particular pepper that I like. That was hard to find A start for I save seeds from that pepper, you, Khun! Treat a pepper like that in a container. If you can keep it from freezing, it will continue to grow. So They do get beat up in the summer here. They do appreciate the shade cloth and the protection from the worst of the afternoon heat and they still can slow down a little bit in the middle of the summer because of the brutality of our weather. But they will come back this fall for you. Give him an opportunity. Give him a little push with fertilizers so they can get going and you should see your peppers continued. Put on another season.

Phillies owner John Middleton questioned after deciding to fire Gabe Kapler

"Last year. Hindsight's great, but it wasn't hindsight. John Middleton at the news conference last year when Hey, fired Gabe Kapler, and this is self explanatory, and let's hear John When you fired Ruben Amaro, you said it's a results based business, right? Gabe Kapler took the hit. And I'm wondering why it was just Gabe Kapler. And I, among other people are wondering why this and I like both Matt and Andy. Why those two gentlemen are sitting with you today after what you've done, so I'm gonna ask you a question. How are you going to give you some stats? The question is this You tell me what part of this organization isn't better today and really substantially better today than it was four years ago when they came So that's a little minor league system and I see since match drafted I believe you have two players that made the major leagues and Kohler bring this year and hazily. So outside of that, I'm wondering there's a feeder system. Other teams have injuries and they've overcome them. The Phillies couldn't and I don't think it was all games for, but I realized the decision had to be made. But what did he have to support him? From your draft picks. So happened Let me I've got the bullpens IRA, but to answer your question in the second half of the season, particularly from the trade deadline on Howard Isn't it? The fourth highest for the best bullpen? You're a in baseball. So this kind of sit there and say that covered was bears is not true, because if that's the case, then what about the other 2016? The worst bullpen. The cupboard was bare. Look at the bullpen this year. I love the way McClintock and he looked at Macklin Tak when he said that he fed him all these stats. Two roll out during this news conference. That's a joke. The bullpen the fourth best from July on well, this season doesn't go from July 1, and that's It was, it was a mirage. It was a joke to defend him and then animate failure says Well, we have three players in the top 100 baseball in the minor league system. There's 30 teams. That's barely an average. The Braves had five in the top 64. So let's go. Let's move on. So this week, McClintock and this is beautiful, too. This is a joke. God, let's go with McClintock. Um I am really proud of this team the way that they have overcome Not only the cove it issues early in the year, but more recently, the way the guys have stepped up to overcome some of the injuries that we've had Andi put themselves in a position this week to control their own destiny on DH Make a push for October. Um, that's probably The biggest thing for me, Bob is that I'm proud of the way this group is handled it. There's been, um, you know again, there been many challenges, most of which you've written about, but Just to see guys. Come up from the system and contribute to see the way that No nap and March John have performed in Jae Hee's absence to see The way that bone has been able to slide over from third to first security downs from 2nd 3rd to help us navigate. Reese is injury. Um, you know the way that Kodiak come up and got a couple of big plate appearances for us. I'm sure I'm missing. Jo Jo and Brandon have taken down beginnings the last couple of weeks. I think that's the thing I'm most proud of with. This group has been really rallied around the next man up mentality and put themselves in a good position heading into the final week. It's a joke. It's a joke I spin. He is the new spin doctor, Philadelphia. They've navigated through the Kobe. So is every other team. The Cardinals are still in it, and they had 11 doubleheaders. The Marlins had to sit in a hotel room for over over seven days, and they're in the playoffs. I don't want to hear about navigating through it. I don't want to hear about injuries. The Braves lost at one time or another, Every one of their five starters. They lost Freddie Freeman at the beginning of the year. They lost a kuna. I mean, it's a joke to you to say, Oh, yeah way injuries and bone moves from third to 1st 1st is probably his natural position and sugar goes from 2nd and 3rd. He started the season at third. It's been It's nonsense, and Jo Jo You know, coughed it up the last two outings. Stop stop. They actually got a break The way Hoskins was hitting that those things happened in their offense, maybe became a little bit better in five years. He's got one player to show for it.

California wants to ban gas-powered cars, but is the auto industry ready to go all electric?

"The trump administration is not pursuing climate-friendly Policies California is Governor Gavin. NEWSOM this week pledged to ban all sales of new gasoline powered vehicles in the state by twenty thirty, five California consumes a lot of gas and would be the first state in the country to enact this kind of blanket ban. So what would it mean for the auto industry and for the state's economy marketplace's Jasmine Garcia reports remember that SNL skit the Californians, it's a spoof on how much time Californians spend behind the wheel. Take to the. Age of forty five doors and liftgate dump you onto Mohali Blah. There's something to this California is the largest consumer of motor gasoline in the nation banning the sale of gas powered cars starting twenty, thirty, five cents a message to an auto industry that's been sluggish on change says Ethan L. Kind Director of the climate program at UC Berkeley. Look if you want to do business in a major market, like California, fifteen years you better get going but industry insiders say the ban accelerate the inevitable sam for any with auto forecast solutions. Industry believes that the next big thing is vs the problem is the pricing on visas still expensive it's still takes a while to. Charge charging him structure is building, but it's still not everywhere we needed to be and even with the ban on purchases, it's going to take a long time to get all those gas powered cars off California's roads says Georgia with Sony head of the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research cars have two three lives. You buy a new car then you sell it maybe five years later, and if it's a good car might through two or three different cycles overeat sales, right. But as the state continues to grapple with climate change, many Californians feel time is of the essence of Jasmine guards for marketplace.

And I'll tell you this friend of mine mark any off. He owns a salesforce salesforce that computer software company they have buildings everywhere. He called me up and God's you are absolutely right now it's the billionaire calls me up and tells me you absolutely, right no. Actually the billionaire read the whole article and then the article I say Donald Trump is like the movie the last emperor, he's a five year old running the country. Now, if you think a five year old is running the ship, you have a responsibility to actually look for the iceberg now that's. What I really met in to say. So if Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats believe Donald Trump is competent and they just disagree with his policies. Then everything I said was wrong and I apologize. But if you believe Donald Trump is totally incompetent immoral individual who shouldn't be president in his unqualified could do this job then yes, it is your job to not get caught up emotions and to actually look icebergs that are coming towards America.

C.I.A. Operatives in the Early Years of the Cold War

"Scott Anderson joins us now from the catskills. He is a contributing writer for the New York, Times magazine, and the author of many books. His latest is called the quiet Americans four CIA spies. Of the Cold War tragedy in three acts, Scott Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks much nice to be here. So you are allowed on the podcast to talk about your previous book Lawrence in Arabia which came out in twenty thirteen hand, which of course feels like now centuries ago which makes it clear to our listeners are longtime listeners that this is not your first. Book. Involving spies I'm curious what what's the draw for you but I think Speiser inherently fascinating in not just to an awful lot of people and of thought about what is I think it's the the allure of having a secret life. I think that I think that for an awful lot of people this idea that you have a whole separate identity is really fascinating New People. What I was drawn to in both the Lawrence and with in the quite America's the foresee a officers I follow is that in both cases, this was at a time when individuals out in the field had a tremendous freedom of action. So it wasn't. People sitting behind desks following policy that they're actually out in the field doing crazy stuff. You also have a personal connection to the story right in terms of what your father did for living you talk a little bit about that. Sure. My father was agricultural adviser for the Agency for International Development, which was a branch of the State Department. I grew up in. East. Asia in in Korea and Taiwan as Indonesia. and. So this was the nineteen fifties, nineteen sixties when I came along American government workers abroad often in those sorts of countries often were two hats whatever their official job was my father's job as agriculture adviser but it was also part of this great anti Communist crusade was happening around the world. So the upfront hearts and minds, soft power aspect of my father's work was working on agrarian reform in line with countries like these countries were were the land was was had been controlled infra centuries by all darkies. But the the more hard power in the darker side of what my father was doing was was setting up rural vigilante squads, home guard militias to watch over the local populace and to make sure that they weren't being swayed by the communist in certainly in countries like Taiwan or South Korea. If you were exposed or accused of being a leftist, your life was not going to go. Well, you know I'm now getting a sense of why one of the four characters in your previous book was an agronomist perhaps. That's right. Yeah it's well It's it's an interesting thing because. It just for national development was often used by the CIA as a cover because. Are Out, in the field, they're not, they're not saying, I'm destined to capitol there often out among the local population and probably have a better sense of what's happening. Outside what you one thing I'll say I've noticed over time in different countries. I've been almost invariably the ex Patriot community that knows best what's happening in the country are tend to be the people are out in the field in often the Middle East is the oil guys. They have a sense much more than than people sitting around in the capital. Let's start with frank wizner. The first person you mentioned, and this is not the the first book to be written at least in part about wisner who was he and what made him. So central to the story wizards amazing Turkey was a corporate lawyer who was working at a Wall Street firm when even before World War Two broke out and he quit his law firm to join the navy, he ended up being an operative for the office to teacher services, which is the the wartime intelligence agency of the of the army that they owe asset kind of the precursor to the CIA. That's right. That's right and he ends up being A. Kind of the first American to to to witness. The Soviet takeover of country in Eastern Europe, and this was in Romanian to summer of nineteen forty. Four So full year before the war ended and a wizard was on the ground as a as an oasis operative and just watch the strong arm tactics did really a matter of weeks led the Soviets to take control the country he and he was sending cables back to Washington telling telling them what are so good allies doing he sees the say he has the same experience in eastern Germany at the end of. The war in watching the way the Soviets for taking over, he goes back to his law from for couple of years for the complete unhappy, and then when the CIA starts up in nineteen forty seven, they have this idea that they wanna start a covert operations branch of of the CIA called the Office of Policy Coordination and frank listeners chosen to head that the name was deliberately chosen to be really boring. That's right and in fact, the name itself, the Office of policy coordination was was so top secret that even you can't even say the name out loud for twenty five years. So in that role wizner e created, what what he called the mighty world, which was this vast covert operations umbrella of a operating throughout the world and everything from hard power aspects of it like dropping dropping partisans behind the iron curtain to everything to cultural stuff voice. Of America. Radio Free Europe that was all came out of the Office of Policy Coordination.

Airbus' Ambitious Hydrogen Plans

"I'm happy to welcome with me on the program senior editor, Guy Norris and tier to our France Bureau chief who as you surely know if you read ideation? Gregory is an expert in aerospace technology subjects to. This week, we are going to talk about three aircraft concepts that Abbas presented for the first time. They are very different from each other in many ways, but they do have one thing in common they are supposed to be powered by hydrogen. And Abbas Vision in the transformation of aviation into a greener more sustainable, future exciting ideas but lots of questions too. So let's take a step back I wonder if I can ask you to just walk us through the plans that Abbas. Presented this week. Sure So basically, there are three concept plaints. At the center of the city they called him supplies because none of them will actually be built but three directions that are going to be studied in depth. One of them is looks like turboprop aircraft to wing configuration. I think the maximum. Capacity would be around one hundred passengers. The other one. Sorry. The first one, I mentioned a because it would burn hydrogen in relatively conventional outside rented conventional. Engine turbines. The second concept plane is also conventional Tuban Wing country duration from be powered by two defense number props to defense money hydrogen. Again, capacity is between one, hundred, twenty, two, hundred passengers, and just like the first concept plane the shooting hydrogen attack is located at the rear of the fuselage and the third concept is definitely the most spectacular. It's a blended wing but. Again powered by defense. So often concepts contemplates both hundred ten. Engines but the big difference, the May feature of the sudden is the blend buddy consideration, which means you can much more optimize hide myrow dynamics, and you can also dispute passengers and fuel tanks. I, know much more efficient way in the in. So. Roughly speaking this, all three concepts that are is. Speaking about so we're we're kind of fifteen years right I mean they're talking about enter enter into service in twenty thirty five but already, they're making some very important technology choices you mentioned liquid hydrogen for instance can just walk Ciragan. You know what are the steps that are coming up in between now and twenty, thirty five so between now one, twenty, thirty, five, the and again, twenty thirty five is the plant date for entry to service our first main Maislin if she wishes twenty twenty-five by then they expect to have majored some technology bricks as they. Call them to choose from and they would launch a program in twenty, twenty, seven or twenty, twenty eight. So that would be a food program for the Industrial Program between or twenty degrees and would would be very, very informative for us to follow is the next five years they plan to do several demonstrations. So they will demonstrate that technology bricks such as hydrogen storage, for example, and one of the most demonstration projects is about hydrogen storage and distribution they were stopped on the ground, but they also plan some instructional on the sorry in the era in. which could be quite a spectacular and they plan quite. Surprised by this, they plan to start with gaseous hydrogen storage demonstration before moving to liquid, and as they seem to have made a choice ready for liquid hydrogen meet surprised by the fact, they are going to also test guess. So Guy. Abbas. Seems to be really enthusiastic about this and it's kind of came out of nowhere but it came a bit of as a surprise to me. That's enthusiasm isn't really shared by everyone in an industry particularly in the engine industry they're still seem to be quite some serious reservations about this. So can you tell us what what what you're hearing? Yeah Hi there. It's basically a very is a very interesting time because, of course, the engine manufacturers like the fray manufactures they're all facing this kind of cliff of how do we meet the sustainability targets in really thirty years seems like a long time but but in the aerospace business, it's really not They've got. So they've they've been approaching this idea of whether to adopt the new transformational approach. Mostly based on alternative fuels, which would be dropping into the existing kind of infrastructure, the existing propulsion designs and the existing tube and wing configurations that the framers of loved and developed and perfected for the past fifty years all nor so you can imagine that there is a bit of a shock going on here to how do we suddenly move all of that towards a hydrogen based ecosystem. Of course, the other thing is that they've saying, well, you know we have been that before we've studied this, we started in the nineteen fifties, for example, more based for military type applications again, in the seventy s during the fuel crisis when they the first global fuel crisis and again in the nineties when there was the first glimmers of the emerging environmental issues this time of course, it's different as you both said, you know the there is a driving force has never been there before, and of course, the the French government tying the. Incentive. Package really to sustainability is the big decision making sort of driver on this. So you know the fact that. There's much more urgent need now is is changing the game, but doesn't change the fact that there is seventy years of history of safety and certification and development behind a no operational cycle around kerosene people know how to handle it. They know how to certify it, and this is a whole new ballgame. So why would you know bus get buy in from the other industry participants if that wasn't possible for one reason or another over the past? Several decades well I mean one of the thunder, the reasons that time does move on and technology has improved. They're all ways of coping now as a couple of ways to look at it. One is from a big picture perspective. The big challenge that a lot of them see both in and out of aerospace is the fact that they feed stalking. The actual production of hydrogen has to be done in a sustainable way to make this entire equation balance

"This is Matt, Wells. At U. N. news well, with high level meetings own going to address the climate and Biodiversity Crisis Center stage you and headquarters one of the Secretary General's Youth Advisory Group members urging world leaders to make sure their decisions get back to the people that helped shape policy on the ground, and this Gibson is co Coordinator Three Fifty Fiji regional use lead climate change network in the Pacific driven by young climate leaders and he. Told Julia Dean, of our UN Country Team Australia was important to let groups like his know they've made a difference for me. There are three reasons why we should be continuing to engage young people and the first reason is around young people are the only demographic that has the opportunity, the agency and the capability to be able to respond really quickly and effectively situations that need a response in the Pacific. We Sierra really clear example when it. Comes to responding to natural natural disaster. You look at any cyclone that we've had over the last ten years any development sector agency that's worth. Their salt will tell you that young people have been at the forefront of driving the transformative change to ensure that the response to the crises was done effectively ethically and quickly, and so that's the first reason is the reason we engage young people because without founding biased, we get the job done but. The second reason I think is perhaps more important is because young people have the most vested interest in the way in which the future will pan out. We are in a unique sort of next this position where we have the ability to see the learnings from generations before us, but we also the generation that will be guiding in creating the next generation through the next thirty five to fifty years. So our interest is not just our own. But also the interest of ensuring that our children have a life that is something that is worthwhile and something that we would like for ourselves and fraud Johnson, and then of course, the third reason is because you've will be the population that drives future innovation. So the reason that we work with youth now is not because we want them to feel cool and fancy and like social influences. Now, the reason we work with youth now is to. Ensure that we're laying down the foundations so that humanity and society is going forward are fighting trump because at the end of the day, the leaders that we have. Now that you know pushing retirement age won't be there twenty five years from now to see their plans to fruition. So we need to be able to instill enough Dr Anne, capacity and young people to ensure that the future that we have is not just one that we. Wants, but it's a, it's a reality

Overseas Operations Bill: Government facing calls to rethink plan to 'decriminalise torture' by UK troops

"Torture has been prohibited under international law since nineteen forty eight and is enshrined in legal instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations Convention Against Torture. But the British government is trying to push through the overseas operation bill which would introduce a stronger legal protection for UK soldiers serving abroad critics believe it will make overseas operations worse the victims of war crimes and for the UK standing in the world bill passed its second reading in Parliament on Wednesday and three Labor backbench peace had been sucked for voting against. Well Tracy joy is head of accountability and international cousy at freedom from torture, and she joins me on the line to tell us more good morning tracy. What does this bill exactly seek to achieve? Good morning to a gina the do a apparently according to the government seeks to provide greater protection for British troops against vacations claim that might have been brought from operations. That happened overseas more than five years ago. what we believe that it does actually is to create a barrier to justice with those he might have been subjected to war crimes by British troops in those are the operation. I mean, the government says that it is doing this for the soldiers but we've seen very very senior military personnel and ex personal come out to say that they'd gravely concerned about the signal. It sends I mean field marshals, generals, frontline veterans of expressed grave concerns that what are that precise objections? I think the objections that many hold is that and to summarize the words that you spoke in parliament that this legislation really is a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I think that the is acceptance that perhaps the prices that some soldiers have been involved in have taken Fawzi Long. But that really the problem of investigation and the government is seeking to legislate to solve the problem that would be better served through. BITTU. Protesters right at the beginning and more independent and speedy investigation I. mean the government denies that there will be any barrier to justice under these Nino's. It does say presumption against prosecution for torture and crime except in exceptional circumstances, what signal is the sending internationally It's very interesting that they say that but It seems unlikely that you would say that there's no buried to justice when actually they specifically introduced. Three layers of legal protection that would stop prosecutions that would've normally have preceded. And the signal that sins therefore is that they would be sick instances in which to torture would be deemed to be unexceptional and we find that quite startling. Actually, how could the government argue that torture could ever be unexceptional? I mean rape is excluded from from the provisions. That's obviously a good thing torture isn't does not mean that torture is a lesser crime. Well, that seems to be exactly the signal that the government is sending that I mean, obviously, it's excellent that sexual violence and raped or created and the Minister of Defense Been Wallace argued in parliament that the crimes that should never take place on the battlefield. Well, we would that torture should also never take place and it seems quite absurd that they would say out to give the impression that torture and other crimes against humanity as you say, Lesser Crime Than Sexual.

Evergrande bond trading halted on reports of cash crunch

"Extremely volatile session in the company's shares. We got reports of developers fearing a cash crunch. Let's bring in China Markets co anchor David English, David Get us up to speed with the story. It is a fast paced, developing one. Certainly we've had news in the last hour. Absolutely absolutely. And in fact, I'm just looking at just the shares right now. And we have about 30 40 minutes left before we entered a lunch break here in Hong Kong. We It probably fell yesterday. It fell at the open, then erase all those losses and traded higher and as we speak, it's not a raise. As much as what I think a 7% game. I mentioned it earlier when I was speaking with Yvonne and Tom. There's a lot of ifs in the story, and certainly it depends where you go and how this develops and could well be have massive market implications. That could mean one option or one scenario, or it also could be the world's Biggest nothing burger, really, if it does avarice that cash crunch But again there lots of there's a lot of uncertainty right now, which, I guess partly explains one to move in the equity market and second. More importantly, the pressure that has been consistent In the bond markets where you have, say 24 and five year bonds of the company that owns the local bonds, for example, maturing 2023 2024 falling as much as 20% last I checked in Shanghai. And have been have been halted, in fact, for about 30 minutes, But that was as of about an hour ago, so they should be trading right now, But it's it's precisely Rish and has how you would expect something like this to play out in the market. To a lesser extent in the equity markets, But the money's as they mentioned are continuing to be under pressure. We're trading over 90 yesterday were roughly in the mid seventies right now. Dave. It does seem like investors, a mauling the implications of this I mean, take a look at the stocks. You know, in the money in losses back and forth. What sparked this in the first place? What's this warning coming from the company? So it was. It was a letter that the company on it was a letter, dated about a month ago and it was from the company was sent to the Guandong government and essentially outlining If you will, the worst a really bad scenario. I wouldn't see worse case a really bad scenario in which if if they don't manage to get support for restructuring and part of that restructuring with then see, perhaps, or possibly see Them getting a listing in Shin Jin. If they don't get back, they're up against a deadline. January 31st, and that's when strategic investors may bow out. If that doesn't get extended, then it's this cash crunch $19 billion, as much as that. And to put that into context, size and scope. That's over 90% of their cash and cash equivalents. Not they're not. They're total assets but cash, but in other words, it's a sizable portion that they have to face. Not. The company's also come out separately with a statement responding to certain things that name seen on social media, and I'm going to read that just so I could be very, very precise here that the relevant documents and pictures Are fabricated as pure and are pure defamation, causing serious damage to the company's reputations. That's two sides of the story is an ongoing and developing one. As you would imagine.

'Behind The Kingdom's Veil' Offers Insights Into The Lives Of Ordinary Saudis

"Saudi Arabia opened its doors to foreign tourists. The move was part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmon's grand plan. To transform the ultra conservative kingdom into a modern open state with a more modern open economy. How that is playing out is a complicated, often contradictory story. As we have reported And, of course, being a tourist anywhere right now is tough with the pandemic, shutting down most international travel, all of which makes a new book that offers insights into the lives of ordinary Saudis. In this moment, all the more welcome. It's called behind the Kingdom's Vale, its authors whose on a couple is a correspondent for Der Spiegel magazine, who lived and worked in the kingdom. She's on a couple welcome. Thank you very much happy to join. We're glad to have you with us. Your book tells the story of Saudi Arabia it's past its president. Through encounters that you had with all sorts of people. Sunni Shia men. Women rich, poorer, powerful, not so powerful. I want to start by talking about Nora because Nora was in many ways your entree into Saudi life. Who is she? That was really a stroke of luck to run into. Nor in almost the very beginning. When I moved there, she worked as the assistant off a businessman. Who are you Actually, she was the person who took me to all these places to weddings to food festivals to the desert to places where women only meet suddenly that was an accident, which was rare in which I enjoyed very much and we had so much fun, So actually, it was a wonderful person to accompany me Throughout this time it was living there. You nodded to a food festival. Tell mejust this sounds like such a normal outing heading out to a food festival with a girlfriend. What did it reveal to you about how life in Saudi He is changing. Actually, it was a complete exciting thing. It was the first time that something like this was happening in Saudi Arabia, which just a couple years ago was the kingdom of border just to go out with a friend on neat with other people, Men, possibly even and sit down somewhere. Have a chat with people you have never met before who do not belong to your family, for instance. That is something which was absolutely impossible. Impossible. Impossible is recently as what a decade ago five years ago. Actually, it's only like three years ago, I would say when I was living there every morning, there was another thing, which was absolutely impossible to imagine the day before music concerts. What? I knew somebody who was trying to learn an instrument. He had to drive to betrayal every week, 500 kilometers to get one lesson. And then when he came back, his family criticized hip to say what you wanted to do Music. I mean, people who do music. They also do other bad things. Like meeting women or drinking or other things, which are Haram Haram, meaning forbidden. It's so yes, on this person now is one of the hay started. A great career is a musician. Suddenly this became very normal, but before it was not I want to

Perennial Plants and Perennial Gardens in Fall

"And I know that not for reasons that you wanted to. But for other reasons at your house, you are redoing your. Some your perennial plantings this fall. Are You Yes, we are under construction for reasons not of my. Choosing. Seal in the past couple of days, I have turned a corner on this and I am now looking at it as an opportunity to redesign the garden at the front of my house. So right now, it looks pretty much like a war zone. There's everything has come up the trees, shrubs perennials, and I'm kind of getting excited about pow I'm going to replant so. That's my silverline I'm glad you mentioned that because this is a good time of year to Redo Perennial Garden. What we want to talk about in our main segment is not only redoing a perennial garden but also kind of standard fall perennial maintenance what you should be doing various methods because as always in the garden, there's never only one right way Yeah but. I often think that. One of the downsides of a perennial garden is that you get it planted and sometimes it seems like well, a lot of work to be honest to Redo it right. So you know I'm I'm looking out at one of my perennial bid, the job pie we has really taken over a big part of the garden. I Love Joe Pye now I love the plan it's very Pretty bad. It's really getting to the point that I should go in there and remove half of it. That's going to take a half of a day with a shovel and digging and lifting and all of that, and it's very tempting to do it. But fall is a great time to do it if I go in now and take half of my Joe Pye. Weed out. Then, next spring, I'm going to have that area that is ready to plant with something else, and one of the reasons that now is a good time to do exactly. That kind of thing is because now you can see that giant swath of Joe Pye in your garden, and you cannot deny the fact that it's taking up more space than you. Originally intended and really you need to move some of it in the spring you can kind of fool yourself because it's not big it's not in flower you can't see its full size, but there's no denying in fall when you look out over your garden, what has grown beyond its bound I'm grinning because it's like Ellen was in my head this spring. because. I was out there looking at the U. Petroleum which is the Joe Pye weed and I was thinking Oh, it's not so bad. You can't do that now. It is so bad. So this is a good time to either remove some perennial plants that have gotten out of hand or it who moved perennial plants that perhaps you put in the wrong spot you know that maybe this plant isn't as tall as you thought, it was going to be and so it's hidden behind something else like all of you Pretoria. Or maybe the plant actually got bigger than you thought it was going to be and it's hiding other things and you really need to move it to another location. Or here's another reason to get in there and do some editing. Maybe that plant is just a little bit too much of a thug and you're thinking, why did I plant that gooseneck loose strife in the first place? This is a good time to pare down remove or transplant, and if you're going to transplant, there are a couple of things you need to do for a successful transplant and the first thing I would say to do is cut back most of that top growth you do not want to be digging up a six foot tall stem, of Joe, Pye weed leave a couple of leaves on it, but you want to cut it back to a foot or maybe eighteen inches and it's Going to be much more manageable for you to dig up that Rupaul in addition to editing out and if somebody is redoing their garden as as you are, it is a good time to think first of all, do I want to rearrange things? Do I want to redesign? Do I really want to put any of this plant back if? I'm? Going to find no, I'm going to have to pair that you Pretoria I'm back again in another five years should is included or should I plant it someplace else entirely so I would encourage people to make those assessments and see if they want to do maybe a little more than just the absolute necessity in terms of editing and redoing

"If the focus is like Oh this is like the art for the podcast or I just think that you're setting yourself up for. Like the content generation has to be I. You know. I think that's just as a general lesson to learn. which is like I think many type many other kinds of situations become caught up in like the trappings of it you know, and then like the the the central focus is not on the content, right? Yeah exactly. Start with. Start with nothing like we the first few episodes I think I was just using the microphone in my computer. I was using my headphones. Yeah. Yeah. And so it's just like start there and then. But that's i. mean that's hard because i. have hobbies like that too like like I was just I was getting more into like painting. I was just looking for paint brushes and I was like Oh what if I buy these fancy? and. It's just like now don't by the fancy get fully back to start paying fancy prices. Like you have some pressures. I think is harder now that the podcasting world has so much more visible because I think there's a sense that you know if I'm going to make a TV show. You'll be like, oh Well. That's how it's hard right? And I think podcasting is moving in that direction. I think people think well, just got to be a song and it's got to be yard and got to be you know good sound good editing good all this and. Whereas like even five years ago I feel like the standard was it was slightly different than ours. Like? Some standard but not as substandard would save now. We did upgrade over time like we have way better now you know. We have had our equipment. We still don't have him song. We do have our took. Four years ago real art. Yeah. We have art. We've stickers on the how did this vague? It's like I'm honestly like sick of the joke now where every time at the end they're like, okay and where can you find like their names are Paul, June Jason It's like you can find. Paul at Paul, Shearer like June at Miss June Diane, and then Jason I'm not on twitter and it's like it's been like ten years of him making that joke after every single. Like okay we got it. It's it's. I don't know I don't know why that's. Not, having the theme song you know. Like how long are you going to be non-conforming for? That it's your thing kit, not do it right I know yeah. It's like he would have to make some big announcement like, okay we're not doing this. Signature jokes ideal under they have they have live shows and every time they come out people boo and so I'm like, what's the ice loving Kat up enough to figure out the episode where they're like I want you guys to bill us. We don't really have any inside jokes podcast I'll think, oh no maybe the fairness the Elizabeth homes the. Funny. We both the same. And she's in the news not even worth discussing worth discussing. But I did have I have. I have some follow up I have to follow from lasts from the last episode. I was about talent here. Oh. I'm all ears. So someone tweeted at us. didn't like tag or maybe the detects I can't remember anyway so. PODRUMEDIC underscore vyed. This is I think this is the only one that I saw was he says I used pound to your software at a bank about five years ago five years go by the way as we know now is quite a while but yeah, right and the the wild last podcasting. We did a pilot and they sent a couple of consultants over on site for a few months. Part of their pilot was running training programs for some of the top data analysts unquote, which somehow included me. They sponsored a hacker thon and we won second place I. Got a backpack that I'm too embarrassed to take anywhere in the especially in the bay area. Well, didn't. Say That Oh gone gone are winning submission was a line chart that would forecast into the future using linear model yeah. About a hundred percent sure what that means but. Sounds like it was not super complicated. Yeah. It sounds complicated. Then actually attached to picture of his penalty your backpack I know I really appreciated. It was vows exactly the tweet. I was hoping to get what we wanted to see. Yeah. Yeah. Like just like Nolan has changed in unless you have our follow. I have yet to talk to somebody work there, but I did I actually ban I can't. I had a conversation with some line hill I can't. I can't go on the record with any of those that like it was some stories about people interviewing Pailin tear that like made my jaw like it was. Apparently like they tried not to tell Alex car when people are coming into interview because they don't want him to come in and like in Europe people talk to the people. Apparently it's like he like brings people to his office unlike has Samurai eyesores like whether you think the sword stuff like that like like in the room like take someone out and just you know like just crazy now. saw some Silicon Valley. Yeah, exactly. It's whatever happened in silicon. Valley. Actually. Campaign related like I feel like I should do alarms or something. One thing I've learning from being on this campaign is that the same way that Silicon Valley is like a documentary of Silicon Valley veep is a documentary of what it's like to work in politics. That is what I've heard. Yeah. There are like there's been so many moments where I just like that was covered in Vivo. Ran into one today, we were talking about Nevada and it's like it's Nevada. Like. At like at and then I was talking to someone who's like I don't care. But like I used to work with someone who was like so condescending about it and I was like this is literally in veep and it's literally the stats guy doing it. It's not even like it was just weird. You know. There is someone with a with a baby at like for a while everyone was making a joke but it was a fake baby like it's like no one had seen a picture of the baby. So it's like, Oh, just trying to get out of work, and then that's like in Susan why and where someone has a fake dog and everyone's like let's see a photo of the dog like sigma. The spy. I only made it. Through season. I think I may have seen season too but I I didn't make it very far fortunately my gosh. Well, it's you have to be a certain personality type. Yeah. There is a season I think it's season three. They visit like Tech Company and I love that episodes so much it's. Like it's like one. One thing they talk about episode that's kind of happening to me is just each take like. The hard shells that are people who work in politics and you put them into like. The light. They call it like a summer camp for cyber brats. Big Tech Campuses and they're just like they're they're like a cynical people there in their people are playing ping pong and they're like, what is this you? Making Fun and I can tell even when I'm trying to tone it down, I can just tell like some of the stuff that's my instinct to do. Just, like feels wrong in this environment like, Oh, I think that came across like. Twelve or something you know. Yeah quite as hard boiled as everyone else. So yeah exactly and also just like things that. I didn't even think we're kind of infantile. I don't I can't even think of an example but It also reminds me of the book disrupted..

"So. Yeah. Do you WanNa talk about data signs? All like thrown. Debugging Hell. I've actually been through a bit of debugging myself today because. I have office our teaching, my class now out. The homework tomorrow and so office hours was predictably busy. How's it going? How is teaching? You can update our listeners it's a you know it's. It's going I would say you know I think. The students seem to be taking it quite reasonably under the circumstances they're doing. The doing the work and I actually I think. The office hours over zoom is like I might keep that actually. because. It's way better to do screen sharing. Than it is to be leaning over someone shoulder you know. Yeah. Unless you set up I, mean in your office though I feel like you had set up kind of a paring station. Yeah. But you still you know the the biggest problem I have with that is that like I'm looking at these like tiny like twelve inch screens with their like. Six Point Fonts and I just kit kit. Kit So but when they screen share that it's like whatever you're the resolution is way better for me and you have the thing where you can like annotate their screen share. That's really good. Oh Yeah. I don't really do that but I think slack has that automatically regan like activate a little pen and then be like what about right here. But also with like get hub in stuff having just the line counts is usually helpful enough to be like, oh, jumped to line one, sixty, five. Yeah I mean at this level I mean most of the time I look at their code for like a second it's like I. See what's wrong you know it's not like. I mean it's an introductory class. It's not like some advanced class so. Usually. But like to be district, get to the point where I could look at their code is actually more of a hassle elected person I did I think it is a resume. Yeah. So that's kind of Nice what else do you think in general? What do you think our habits? You'll keep from this era. That's probably it. I liked to lecture I prefer to lecture but I'm not doing it for this class this year because it's just too many people too many time zones in to any assist too much. Notice that many of the students took advantage of that by taking a class that meets at the same time out finally which I mean yes smart right. But yeah, generally, I prefer to like to lecture so if we can, I would do that. Hopefully a year from now I'll be doing that. Be I. I'm going to list like Hopkins People in general for the vaccine. By two six people I little list now that usually you can like speak. Usually. How often have you done it? I just saw that the clinicians got the flu vaccine early every year will they have to get it right and that's like a thing right so I never like got it at the same time but I I always assumed I could or something. I don't know. It whatever they say like is available. So It's available. Now have you gotten your flu vaccine? Just like your normal flu? No well, I I haven't gotten it yet because I usually get it through hopkins like they just have like a free. You know they just set up a free thing where they just give you the vaccine. So I'm just like waiting for that email the show up. I'm waiting I I could go get it at the doctor's office but I looked at their times and they're not nothing you know. It's weird 'cause I. Keep hearing. You should get your flu vaccine this year. That I've like wait but I'm not I'm not like near anyone just matter interactive that he lives. Yeah. Like I'm still like pretty quarantined compared to I think like most of America. Yeah like I do not interact like I don't go to the grocery I, go to like an outdoor coffee shop like I haven't even been inside a restaurant like I haven't done anything inside going to get a vaccine would be the most dangerous thing you do. Yeah exactly. So Maybe I shouldn't I. Don't know. You probably should guessing I keep thinking I should, but then it's probably won't till after the election. Well that's a different story. Yeah. Anything else like anything your personal. Your home life or your. Grocery, life I don't know what what are you asking me if anything's changed yeah I can't say that anything has radically changed. In the last. Six months really. We did go out to dinner actually for the first time. This week. Inside outside outside. Okay. That's. Different Yeah. I. Mean there's not going to be a lot of outdoor dying like left as maybe a few more weeks before it gets too cold I. think. I mean I think my tolerance for sitting outside and the cold is probably a little bit higher. I tolerate the cold better than like for example, the other members of my family So but yeah, it's it will just be too cold and there will be an eating outside. So I am. Guessing. They've changed I mean I do I actually kind of like working remotely so I feel like that's on the table in a way it never was before although there are downsides. It's kind of hard to identify the downsides I know it's hard to explain. Yeah. The downsides would you start to I feel for me Just, be clear. This is not my preference. Obviously. I'll do it because but like I would prefer to do this under normal circumstances but I think when when I talk about like what the downsides Har I agree they're hard to articulate and when you do try to articulate you kind of sound a little silly. I feel like it's just but for me, it's just like kind of all the little things. That are part of the job, but you know they are associated with the job you know. Yeah. Now it is. It's a million little things and but it's hard for me to say what the net impact is 'cause they're things. I, really like about like I, like studying way more time with my cab even though yesterday she was like a terrorist. Choose not happy I. I could not. I spent all day trying to figure I could not figure it out but she was not happy with me probably food related it was definitely food relate like I tried to give her every type of food that I have and she was like rejecting I. Think she really felt bankers I think when they feel sick, they get angry. Until they don't feel sick anymore. So I don't know because I don side she searches like eating any plant that was available to her. Yeah. So anyway. Sometimes I like it, and then I I like not having the commute you now. Like there's things I really like about it. So I haven't it's an odd it's an odd situation. I don't know like I like being in my home like I like my home I like how I decorate it. I like my stuff you know. But yeah, there's also just a weird feeling about it. Yeah, I. Said I feel like I understand what you're saying, but I also can't. Articulated exactly. At the biggest thing for me to are like. Call Him with my family. We just never I think a lot of families already do that but we never did it before and then the way. I like grocery shops leaked. Changed. I'm like I order from this thing in the bay area called good eggs. It's like grocery delivery, but it's not like instant art style it's aboard like. Employees who deliver and then I also like when I go into the grocery. I'm just like buying a ton of stuff. So like I I think the smoothies me a lot of fruit and I'll by like five bags of I'm just like, okay. This is my once every three months trip to the grocery. stocked up forever so. Yeah I'm sure there's other things too that I'm not thinking of, but yeah, workwise I'm not totally sure but. I'm sure it'll be more clear when I try to go back in twenty years. Don't say that. I see in my when my son he's doing a they're doing like distance learning now. And I see like you saw I don't really know what goes on when he's at school like I'm not there right and it's not like he tells me so. But I could see that like you know if he were in the classroom. There's all these like little bits downtime like inbetween like when he's finished doing something or you know and the teachers like still waiting for the kids to the kids to finish or whatever and. Here They're his desk to enough. Yeah. Just staring. Yeah. Whereas in the classroom you might be like he could be like. Talking to a friend early. Walking around or anything else literally. But here he's just like staring at the wall. So it's just like I could see like their little things like that. That, you don't have at home. Did you see the video like a kindergarten teacher teaching like? It was some Tiktok they've been put on twitter. She had so much energy and she had made these little signs for like when you're on mute that she is like I think you're on mute and like like a little lake she..

Mountains of accusations happened against them over this week it took until it took until this week fame to no longer be officially a commander of the order of the British Empire now aside from the obvious question of wall took. So fucking long there are other questions that arise such as how did you get a see be in the first place just big essentially rich and famous why do we have? CBS's when the in CB cease to exist significantly longtime ago and also seriously what took so Qinglung. There's a lot of resting Predator face in the entertainment industry and I feel like we're going to be seeing more and more of these happening. I think if the Queen is going to remove it, she should remove it personally say miss how she gives it personally. So she's GonNa I know he's like island now I know he's moved somewhere else. I think she should tend to put the prison. With a sword or preferably shave and take it away from him. Then she cut his nose. Chinatown style. That's how I think should it should happen but I mean, there's always we we we didn't take away from Sophal. He died and everyone when there's no point because it's like gone. Now when you're like, well, he still gets to have that next to his name. There's always a debate every year over like who should get the owners. and.

Just hand them out to the women also on his pointless and shit. I think in your kind of beating up on this institution for for taking so long to strip Harvey Weinstein of this honor but I, I'm sure in Fifty Years American, Conservatives will put up a statue of Harvey Weinstein and then assists that insist that if you take down your ignoring.

Everything the appointment of Supreme Court justice be right up there with the most politically corrosive. Is it time for America just.

I look, I certainly think we've got to we've gotTA do some amending. I. Don't know if I trust the people in charge, they may just shredded and leave it shredded. Donald Trump's business seem like fighting. A paper shredder. When when you tell Donald trump shred the papers, he says how small He's done. Yeah. You want him to shred the constitution. He'll. He'll burn it. He'll find some way to to cover up that ever happened but I do the Supreme Court is there are so many the Senate the Supreme Court kind of weirdly undemocratic institutions having nine people decide your fate forever would be like appointing a Boston Red Sox for life and just having them play every game no matter how decrepit and close to death they are until they decide that they want to retire and that is a terrifying proposition even as bad as the red sox have been in this cova truncated season.

Staying Confident In The Airplane

"And what I want to address this podcast and I'm hearing a lot of things like Jason I, got my private a year ago I flew pretty regularly for a few months but you know life. And just not flying as much as I wanted to, and I'm starting to lose that confidence I. Don't feel like I wanNA, take my kids up or my wife because I don't feel confident if something happens up there that I can deal with it or at least deal with it is sharply as I did the day after my check reading. So I've gotten a few versions of that story and I WANNA talk to you about how you can do this how you can stay proficient and you can stay confident and you don't have to spend a fortune to do it and I think there are three main points that I wanna make in small tweaks you might have to make to your flying. But the first one is in, you know how close this is to my how hard the standardization the idea that you can ritualized you're flying. And then remember like rehearse remember and perform the ritual of flying and so all you really have to remember is that ritual and what the ritual is designed to do is to weed out the possibility of thousands of other smaller mistakes from happening I'm great example there is the final walk around on a preflight, right. If you just remember to do the final walk around on a preflight, you might catch tomorrow on the nose wheel cinderblocks blocks on the tail Pito Tube cover. Fuel caps left off seatbelts hanging out of the door baggage compartment opened I mean I, you go on and on and on with the things that you might catch. Simply. By remembering to walk around the airplane after the preflight. Okay and that goes deep. If you want a very detailed version of all of the soap's the standard operating procedures that I teach, those are all in my book setting the standard. But that is one concept that will add huge beer flying. This is an I didn't make this operate. This is the way the professional pilots do it because they've got money in the game they've got a business, they have to take care of one of their pilots crashes. It can't be game over right not only that as you've heard me say the company's survived the accident typically. So the company has a chance to evolve develop a procedure that will prevent the. Pie The from any other pilots for making the same mistakes and they can force compliance with that procedure. That's huge. That's the whole process, and if you can get yourself to do that, you are miles ahead of the game. All right. That's one thing we'd like to ritualized the flying, and the second thing is getting rid of this idea that you go back every two years for what they used to call a biennial flight review or a flight review that is not. Enough that is not regularly. You're not going to regularly enough if you're going back every two years and the pros know this to right how often do the pros go back? I heard you say it every six months, right. So if you're a professional pilot, every six months, you go back with your instructor. Back to the training environment and you go through the ringer right you practice all of the emergency procedures, all of those things that you might need if someday. You're you're in a situation where you have an incident? You've got your family on board right and all of this training inspires confidence. So this is the feeling of confidence in the airplane comes from doing it regularly and feeling confident that you can handle the edge cases if they come up. I'm so what most people do just to kind of get US summarized here three point two when most people do is they get their pilot certificate they here. Okay. I have to get a flare view maybe they go get a new club checkout and then that's it right and then they're out flying with their friends and their kids and their wife and two years ago by nothing boy I better go get a flight review that is not a way to inspire confidence. That is not a way to feel good about what you're doing. In the pros know that. and. So the last thing I'd like to say is this is the part where we get into. This is the third point where we get into the budget. Is that there's been a lot of evidence to suggest that if you just keep your head in the game right back in the day they see if you read flying magazine or you re Flight Training magazine those are still great ideas by the way. But in today's world you've got youtube and you've got APPS late ground school and you've got you know ah so many different ways to stay engaged with aviation. And I always tell students when they come in to train. The typical question is how much is this gonNa cost me I don't. Generally answer that question as a complete daughter a mount I won't say, well, this certificate certificate is GonNa cost you fifteen thousand dollars or twenty thousand dollars. If you really pin me down on it, I will say it will cost you anywhere from fifteen to twenty five, thousand dollars. There's a ten thousand dollar. Window there depending on how prepared you are when you show up for lessons how regularly fly how busy you are all that sort of stuff. But that's not even the important part. The important part is that you really think about flying more like a monthly expense more like a habit. So when a student comes in and says or perspective, Stephen Comes in and says, I'm thinking about flying how much is this gonNa cost me I will usually say how much can you afford each month? Right? Is this something you can. Afford. To put fifteen hundred dollars a month into or is it something you can only afford to five hundred dollars a month into is something you can put an unlimited amount of money anti right I mean I just have no idea where you're coming from but the important part is you're starting to think about it like a habit that you're taking on and you're never gonNA stop. So you have this monthly expense for flying. Now, let's take A. Relatively for flying a relatively modest budget. Let's see we have seven hundred dollars or eight hundred dollars a month that we feel as though we can spend on flying right it doesn't sound like a lot when you consider your CFI's probably one hundred dollars an hour on the airplane while it's running. Over one hundred dollars an hour. So you're out there spending on, let's say, let's just pick numbers. Let's say the airplanes one hundred and fifty dollars an hour and you go out for one point five keep it keep it. You know easy math that's two hundred, twenty, five dollars right? One, fifty plus seventy, five, two, hundred, and twenty, five dollars plus your CFI you're together with your. Maybe. Instead of one point five year together for two hours it's another two hundred dollars. So we're looking at four hundred and seventy five dollars we're looking at. If you do one lesson a month after your certificate, you're spending four hundred and seventy-five bucks. You've left yourself with a budget of about three hundred, fifty dollars maybe a short two hour flight somewhere with your family. But you've flown twice in the month right and that's the way you need to think about the finance part of it think about it as as a monthly expense and try to allocate how much you're spending each month a little bit toward training and

Give Up Control, On Purpose

"One of the misconceptions that I had about this show when I started this podcast five years ago. was that every episode needed to be better than the last? And this was a misperception misconduct option of what this audience needs out of this podcast for a couple of reasons. The first reason is very simple. How do you decide? between two episodes, which one is the best. The easy answer might actually be substitution question. Which, episode, has more listens. Or? Perhaps the heuristic were this substitution that we make is which episode has the best feedback. Which episode is mentioned in reviews the most or which episode has the most chatter on twitter. All of these are just proxies to quality. And there's no specific way to determine. What episodes are? Unequivocally. Better than others. Of course, that's not to say that all episodes are then therefore equal to each other their episodes that I feel. Much more proud of over time but the perception, the confusion that I had was that my pride or my feeling of. Investment or my feeling of quality my perception of quality of the episodes were going to match up with everyone else's. My perception was that I needed to increase control and investment in every episode. But the truth was that I needed to like go of control. And invest less in the episodes not because I didn't WANNA put more of my energy and time. Into caring for the episodes but rather. that. If I tried to be a perfectionist about these episodes, then we wouldn't be able to publish this show on as regular basis. And the interesting factor here. Is that some of the episodes where I felt. Rushed or even. Like the idea for the episode, the premise of the episode wasn't very good. Some of those episodes I actually received very good feedback. You could argue based on those heuristic we talked about at the beginning. But some of those were my best episodes. So, why am I telling you all of this? How does it matter to your career as a software engineer? First of all I do want to mention the fact that this isn't true across the board. Not, every podcast is optimized for delivering two or three episodes a week like this one is. But I wanNA talk about a specific measure. That most suffering engineers will relate to especially as your career moves forward. And that is control. In. One of many things that we often have a confusion about. Perception that could be flipped on its head and many of us would. Benefit from that flipping. Our natural perception most of us at least. That as we gain more control things will improve. As as we have more influence. As. We have more say over whatever is happening. As. We have more information and more power. Things will improve. Our ability to our lives in a positive. Or our ability to affect other people's lives in a positive direction will increase as we gain more control. But time and time. Again, this shows to not be true. And, probably, for a few reasons, one of the first reasons that comes to mind is the fact that most control his actually an illusion. We aren't increasing our own agency most of the time. Instead, we are borrowing agency from someone else or something else. Or we're allowing ourselves to believe that we have more control than we actually have. Now how does this play out well? As an example, you may eventually become a manager in your career and you might find yourself excited to dive into the statistics of your team's performance. An as you open up those statistics for discussion and as you drive the team towards improving those statistics, it may feel very rewarding to see those numbers change. But there's so many problems that tend to happen when we manage purely by the numbers, this is only one example of how control can be an illusion. In this example, managing by the numbers creates very clear. Problems with those numbers if you have incentives to make a given number move in a particular direction. Then it's very likely that you're trading something else off or. You may unknowingly be creating a false measure, some kind of gamified measure. and. So this idea that we're controlling things more that were able to take those numbers and move them in the right direction by imposing our powerful position, for example. On other people that that is somehow a controlling measure. It turns out to move us in the other direction. We get a picture of things that isn't clear. And this isn't a new problem. This isn't a problem that has come up since. We started measuring things measuring performance with data. This isn't new it's not a modern problem. In fact, many philosophers talk about the idea that control is in some ways. The source of suffering for many people.

I was voice in Spanish for Special K and the tag was Special Gate the various interior.

That's how I was able to write plays and not star in Chicago because I I was doing voices and when Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood made a movie about the pilot Sully Sullivan Burger. I ask them about what it means to be a hero and to play one onscreen screen Tom. I think the other day gave a definition of of hero that I thought was A spot on it was it to me. It's is somebody who does US something extraordinary and yet he doesn't think it's extraordinary. He may think well I. I was on my game that that week there is this projection objection that is put upon you that because you play these guys. You actually have some of the attributes that that you do and believe me. My skill set is to make it appear as though I have these attributes without having any of the actual attributes that being said the power of the cinema and the power of the heroic visions the guy that Ukraine lie on in in motion.

"Weinstein. The New York Times Reporting Ronan Farrow has written a frankly harrowing account of the Herat. Missed the Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood. We're going to need a new Oscar category. This you best actor whose movies we can't watch anymore. Following the Weinstein News. We ran ran numerous segments on multiple aspects of the story from the toxic use of nondisclosure agreements to safety on movie and TV sets. Here's a part of our conversation with the actress and writer Zoe Kazan. I think that the history of our industry of the movie industry is has a history in which women have been sexually harassed raped. Coerced treated like objects treated dispose supposedly treated as if we're not perennials. You know treat it as if every season they need to plant a new crop of bulbs and once you cut those flowers. There's IT's no more use for the plant Like even the fact that we have the concept of a casting couch the people use colloquially is meaningful I had a lot of fear when these allegations came out against Harvey Weinstein that people were going to treat him like the exception instead of the apotheosis of the problem and These women men who come out women and men who've come out since then about other people I think are like real heroes because they are making it impossible for has to say it is just Harvey Weinstein. Emma Thompson also had something to say about this issue John Lasseter who was forced out of his job as the ahead of Pixar and Walt Disney animation over. His Treatment of women was hired by an animation company. That Thomson was going to make a film with. When they hired lassiter her she spoke out thought too old not to walk my own talk? Time is very much shaw's marching on and because I had spoken before when the Weinstein thing blew up and I've always spoken up about this since I was a young woman. I'm there was absolutely no choice. Really and the clever thing about anybody who's going to bully is that they'll do it nor or in front of someone who's going to say you can't do that. They'll do it in secret or in quiet or in private and it's very difficult for instance for someone on who's a runner and who can be replaced in five minutes to say anything bad about someone who it will cost a lot of money to replace. I'm GonNa ask you a favor right now now and this is not part of your letter. That's Pacific disguised. Answer John lasseter. I'm asking me to paragraphs from it because I think it's something that everybody needs to hear. If a man has speen touching women inappropriately for decades. Why would a woman want to work for him? If the only reason he's not touching them inappropriately now is that it says in his contract that he must behave professionally. If a man has made women at his companies feel undervalued and and disrespected for decades. Why should the woman at his new company think that any respect he shows them anything other than an act that he's required it to perform by his coach his therapist and his employment agreement? The message seems to be. I am learning to feel respect for women so please be patient patient while I work on it. It's not easy that was Emma Thompson reading from her letter to Sky Dance Animation about John. LASSETER you're listening listening to the frame fifth anniversary special and we're taking a trip down memory lane like this visit with Jordan Peele when he released get out. This movie movie had to feel cinematic in a way. That only a handful of my favorite or movies pull off a year. We would approach approach this like a an elevated art like it was high art we would try to approach this with Kubrick in Precision and of course fall short but Die Trying unlike Stanley Kubrick. You made the movie a little faster than he typically works. That's right you clearly pay a a lot of attention to music We have some horror. Music Cues lined up for you. I'm going to test to see how much of a horror movie music nerd. You really are you ready to play. Let's it's here the The I q John Carpenter's Halloween. That's the tubular bells from exorcists. Okay one on for one next cue. Carpenter's Halloween I knew it was coming. I knew it was coming. Okay next cue very good three per three and Herman and the last one.

"I'm Darby Maloney editor of the frame on November tenth two thousand and sixteen the day. After the presidential election Lizardo Lizardo performed on full-frontal with Samantha. B and I was floored. Only they celebrate after that I was determined to get her on the show almost a year later. John and I went out to her studio up a winding road near Dodger Stadium. And that's what I like about the studios that like I feel like I'm in nature. Sure I wanna ask you about something that happened. Almost I think exactly a year ago we are going to get up. Change our pampers brush off our shoulders and push Ashok through together. Please welcome Liz. Oh and you began your performance by singing lift every voice in saying which is also known as the Black National National Anthem insane to let them have marine ring in with the needs of the Birdseye we were on the plane. Flying New York and I was washing the election election on the back of someone's head and I went to sleep woke up in New York and I woke up in a trump presidency and I have been thinking about the whole drive there. And then Samantha came in my dressing room and she asked me she was like crying. She was so devastated and she was like whatever you WanNa do. Would you WANNA they do. And we're GONNA continue to do good as hell because I have a job to do and like part of that job is to uplift people so when I thought of lift every voice I asked her I was like well. Can you see if this cleared. Can I sing this on television. And they just were like. We don't even care if you can't and they did the research and they're like you can and then and I was like okay horns just play this one note and I'll sing over that sing song full of faith that the past Esau. I realize there's two things you can watch history happen or you can choose to be a part of it and and instead of ignoring I chose to engage in it and it worked. That was liz so in two thousand seventeen. You're listening to the frame anniversary special. I'm John Horn. And we're celebrating our fifth year on the air one issue. We've always covered on. The show is equality and inclusion. Especially in Hollywood. Here's Meryl Streep from two thousand and fifteen it's important portent that women's stories and the things that interest them concern them confound them are on our screens. That's important important because it's it will define us. I think it's easy for people to assume that this issue or the broader issue of equality has been resolved. I I suspect a lot of people including yourself have a very different opinion. Yeah I think it's It's a fight that's not over but I I probably shouldn't say a fight. I think it should be an agreement. It should be an agreement within the human family that both sides are important and it seems to be very very difficult to get that agreement. I just think that somehow it's an interior change change in the minds of men. I still when you bring up anything that sort of has the rosy at cast of feminism them to it even the most enlightened men I can even my husband Kinda go. They're exhausted by this subject because because it's not their subject but I wanted to be I wanted to be everyone's I don't want women's rights to be a women's issue. Yeah that was Meryl Streep from our show in two thousand fifteen. You're listening to the frame anniversary special. I'm John Horn and we're celebrating five years. Here's on the air. Let's see if we're on the right place. We're here to see a filmmaker. Eva Juve Rene is a founding member of times up and through her company array. She's a tireless champion for new voices and expanding who gets included in Hollywood. What La Means to me is is it is true educational experience to me Because there's a little bit of everyone here and they have space that's the difference between La and New York. You can be who you are and have the space to be. This is a sprawl and so whether you're in spaces where large Persian community you know. I love driving through behind melrose because I always see beautiful families Orthodox Jewish families walking walking together in then I go a little bit further. And I'm in Korea town and then and it's not just a block like it's a full little city you know what I you mean. People can really put their roots down here and it grows into these beautiful and of flowers of of an array of people. That's what I love about it and and And I grew up in Compton which is was not just a black space Compton Lynwood longbridge southgate. It's black it was black and browns Filipino. Guatemalan Mexican EXA can black American African. And that's that's the kind of city this is it starts to get very modulus when you get into quote unquote Hollywood. But that's it's not really La and hate it when people come here and they go to Beverly Hills and like it's kind of fake like do you didn't go anywhere you went from lax. Like the Beverly Hilton. That's you didn't experience it that was from a visit with director and producer Eva devante earlier this year. Coming up on the frame Fifth Anniversary History Special Emma Thompson.

"I'm John Horn. You're listening to the frames. Fifth Anniversary special on the show were always interested in in how and why artists do what they do especially if they're working a little bit outside the norm like this. Game of thrones sound designer. I'm Paula Fairfield. And I I do all the kind of fantastical stuff on the show. The white walkers the dire wolves mammoths but one of the biggest things. Obviously that I do is dragon. Well the funniest part about this with the purse sounds I hunted and hunted for just the right sound. And while I was was trolling around I found a sound of two giant tortoises having sex and I'm not kidding. And and the Mon from the mail is what I took for for as the basis for the purring of young drove on. And what's funny about it is that I I remember watching people watch it and every time that sound would come up. People would giggle and it was just funny. It was just automatic because it has a prime element still in there so knowing that as I proceeded through the seasons I have actively we looked for Sounds of larger animals. Having that piece was produced by James. Kim Who is one of our original producers. I'm John Horn. And this is the frame. Fifth Anniversary special over the years have shared how the changing political climate has affected their work. One example is the playwright John Robin Bates before the two thousand sixteen election. He wrote a play called the Kunia with a trump like character actor he mounted it in La a year later he launched a revised version in Washington. You know people asked me last night at a talk back here in DC. What's the answer to all this because the play in its epilogue ends with the question now and the answer is numbers and in a weird way I thought I could justified getting back to the play because it brings us together? I'm very corny about what the theater is still and I do believe it's a sort of gathering gathering an a church and a communal act and that it has a deep social relevance and resonance are also. It's nothing nothing and so it brought me back to working on it and and doing it in. DC felt like the right place a year later. Let me ask you about the question in the epilogue. It's what are you doing to prevent this. So why was that the question that you felt needed to be asked in the epilogue. It's the only question I think I live with is. What are you doing to prevent this? What are you doing to counter it? What are you doing to answer it? When will you not remained remain silent? Can you remain silent. And it's time to ask that question all the time. Now you know I have friends and family who are Trans and people of Color and immigrants and they are under under constant threat and so so it's up to people like me and maybe most of our listeners that can be an opposition to it vocally actively.

I just like that feeling of making people feel. The frame is five years old and today we celebrate. Celebrate that with some of our favorite frame moments we travel back to memorable interviews dynamic guests strange location some tears and a few. There's a bathtub with a writing desk in the bath. Now there's there's a there's a frontal toilet that's the difference between La and New York. You convenient you are and have the space to be on thought who old not to walk tool bad day when that happened it I still feel that page on from the broadcast center at KABC. I'm John Horn today. We celebrate the first five years of the show. What was some of our favorite moments covering the cultural world and spending time with the people who inhabited when we launched the frame? We were doing something for the very first time I had been a print reporter my entire life so we ask our guests for stories when they first succeeded or failed failed. We have a thirty second request so in two weeks everybody who comes on is saying the first thing that something happened hi. I'm Gina Davis and the first time I got cast in a movie was in tootsie on twelve. Few the first job did I failed in actually got fired on was American gangster eastern. I'm John Stewart. The first time I bob on stage funnily enough was the first time I was on stage. For some reason I was absolutely not nervous at all what my first scene was with. Dustin Hoffman in my underwear. What I learned from that was Is Not all about meal and you have to learn how to navigate sometimes as filmmaker The Bitter End New York City. One o'clock in the morning following three doors cover bands. I had a good five minutes prepared about two two minutes into it. The audience realized I might suck at this but the funniest thing was. I didn't know you're only supposed to come on the days that you're working and nobody bothered. Can you tell me for six weeks. I showed up at six and went home when everybody else did. I'd get a chair and put it right next to Sydney Pollack and sit there and bad day they wouldn't have. I still feel that page on field. I walked into the night I thought to myself you know. There are a lot of law schools. I could I could go to them. And our first guest in two thousand fourteen was Christopher Nolan. He was about to release his movie. Interstellar a lot of people are saying that this is your most personal film. How do you respond to that? You take it as a compliment. Do you think they might be right I six. They don't know me. How would they know I? I don't know myself when either mm-hmm there been a lot of real world events that have driven our coverage over the years but the one that coincided with our launch was a Sony Hack today the. US government pointed the finger of blame directly at North Korea for the devastating cyber tech against the only pictures taken down the movie. The interview that poked fund the North Korean dictator whole. They cost a lot of damage. The cyber attack of Sony pictures which allegedly was conducted by North Korea came in response to who a movie it was called the interview. It Starts Seth Rogan and James Franco. It was a crazy story. It evolved every day and in the middle of it. Dan Sterling Elaine. who was the screenwriter of the interview was with us in studio? Hi thanks for having me. It's very rare that a screenwriter is like with us to talk about breaking news news so I guess my breaking news question is what the Hell's going on today. Well I just know what's going on in my email inbox which is an increasing flood of people asking me if I'm okay. Both emotionally physically and financially was your answer. What are you telling you know I was at a party on Saturday? Night where the host was introducing me to everybody buddy at the party as this guy that brought down Sony the first four or five hundred times the joke was made it was funny except The one thing that I know that I'm not happy about is actually the real suffering that is going on at Sony. Not just by the person who green that my I film so bravely but also by all the people affected by the hack quite concerned about them that was screenwriter. Dan Sterling on our show in two thousand fourteen. I'm John Horn and you're listening to the frames fifth anniversary special for music fans. This is one of those days that you will probably always remember. Where are you were when you heard the news that Prince had died? This is Oscar Garza senior producer of the frame. One of the memories that sticks out for me from our first five years is the day we had to report on the death of one of my musical heroes. There have been reports at Prince wasn't well but certainly no indication that he was hooked on opioids so so it was a shock that he was gone but like every day we simply put our heads down and focused on producing the show once. We were done though. I started thinking of The Times that I witnessed his electric live shows and it was incredibly sad to realize that he'd never take the stage again.

I'm GonNa get notified defied it. You wouldn't want to just prop up your tent without an audience and no opportunity for discovery. Yeah I mean this could eventually come to a displaced meet up and a lot of respect for. That's not our goal at this point. Even though initially it was like so angry at meet up. Let's create a killer. But that's not how I think like when I'm thinking clear-headedly and I don't see red I think I think practically what can we do for our organization. What can we do for our community? And this is the right scope rate skill tool that. It's GonNa work for them. What's been five years force since we last time five since the inception this is your fifth year anniversary Similar question in the companion podcast. You asked us which was hey. What's what's the next five years like field? What what's the future hold for you are you lack of is near like I am currently or are you visionary and you've got lots of ambition? I have an incredible amount of things. I'd I'd like to do. A lot of it comes down to how much we have in our budget because we don't want to overextend ourselves we're a tiny organization. We WanNa make sure everything we do. We do properly and that we're not spreading ourselves too thin so If we can continue to grow our budget we'd like to do a lot more explanatory journalism and and Explain a lot more about technology and put Tech News in context Through really in-depth Primers We'd like to create a lot more really good first party courses and we'd like to create a lot more interactive curricula. We'd love to be able to figure out a way that we could pay for service of could actually have Lennox Focus Challenges Get focused challenges. All these things that require like foul systems essentially you can only do so much in the browser just You know for example. We're able to do python because Mozilla released a giant library. That's a significant update from like breath on or some of the other browser-based Python tools. What's but we'd really like to be able to actually have full development environment on a server that is showing up on Free Co camp that you yourself have your own little mini compartment on? The server costs a lot of money. Yeah so yeah if we were able to increase the budget. We're going to just keep doing what we do. Those three pillars. We're GONNA keep growing the number of people on the forum and by extension in Ir L. Events and We're also going to just keep creating articles and videos IOS and we're GONNA keep expanding the curriculum even talked about this other publication your Youtube Channel. I mean we're on their theoretically so we do have a youtube channel. Donald timing subscribe the bell. That's right youtubers. Always subscribe and the a Bell Right. Why why did you do that twice? I've never hit the bell was actually. It's Kinda Double Optin. You subscribe because you're interested. What's the bill gave you like? I don't care that much that you know video like all come watch it on my own terms that important. Well that's where the double opt in is they get it from the side.

Gamble people have in that five bucks. Seems like it makes a lot of sense so you know one more time to his to our listeners. If if you appreciate the work they're doing and you want to help.

"Ability to project out budget and for an organization organization like us like we just need to be able to budget. We're not trying to make huge. Fixed cost investments. We're just paying for servers. We're paying for people working off. Rico Kim fulltime let me throw a number as she here. This comes from your five years Free Code Camp Post which is on change news also in the show notes for those who missed it more than forty thousand free code. Camp graduates are now working in tech companies like Apple. Google Microsoft Amazon on spotify Shirley many other companies as yeah well. That's an astronomical number forty thousand those are people who've been certified through the program many of them have gone certifications that includes everybody who's in our linked ten on the network which is like sixty thousand ish. People who are working now in technical roles Not Everybody ultimately he got the certification. Because if you get a job like your graduate graduation certification ends to our means to an end I really really my FCC certification right a lot of people get the job and then they'll come and try to finish it was that not that CC in case of his thinking like what. Yeah when were you. FCC's audio this is the airwaves. The Internet areas. That's right. Yeah okay so but still I mean forty thousand people that is to me a huge amount. I mean what does that feel like. Do you feel numbers. They get so big at a certain point that it's kind of like another drop in the bucket. I mean some some numbers are hard to actually like. I Dunno like refi in your mind. Well I'm extremely blessed and I just feel incredibly grateful that there are so many people out there who bother you know e mailing me or tweeting at me or sharing these stories of their transitions. Sion's from working in counting being trucker working in manufacturing All these different fields that they've gone from to doing software development them and. Yeah so that's interesting it contextualized as those numbers. When you're getting practically every day I get an email from somebody saying? Hey I just was able to do this. You know thanks again and and then I'm able to follow up and say oh. Yeah can you tell me a little bit more about how you You made the transition. Where can you post on the form? Because a whole lot of people are in the process of trying to uh-huh yeah and so the number is an abstract. I mean it's obstructed. Is that large. But I have so many concrete examples of that every day the drive home to me and so for me you know. It's just a dream come true. I never would have imagined that we would have anywhere near the scale of people being able to accomplish things and you know provide for their families and new ways and actualize themselves and be creative. Inoue's so yeah it's just a huge honor and a huge blessing. So one of the challenges that we've seen people facing coming out of nontraditional education background grounds. Such as I have a Free Code Cam certification or some other boot camp or himself taught. Is that that hiring process is difficult for them them for lots of reasons. One of the reasons that companies and organizations aren't always on board with hiring more people are looking for senior developers than junior developers developers and People who are going through recode camp sounds like they're having success getting hired. Do you help them on that side of things or is there like a community unity support. I'm wondering like if there's like tips and tricks. or how are people having that level of success. Yeah I got through the program and I got a job because like you said the job is what most of us are drafter and so. I'm just curious if there's like if the community helps on the job side or just once you're through the program you just are competent enough to get yourself. A job has has a question. We've kind of made a neutrality setup where we don't we don't specifically guide people to specific companies We we we we thought about. We built out of a job board and we were going to have it to where people could apply for jobs directly through free cope. We just thought about like you know if somebody has a negative experience variance or if there are people out there who are you know you read about a lot of these silicon valley companies that basically. Just pretend that they've got all these funding in and things like that. And then the funding never materialized and these people have moved to this expensive city and basically it. stepped on on their paycheck You know we didn't want to be you associated with any sort of like project like that so we just decided you know we're not gonNA WE'RE GONNA leave the job board stuff and the recruitment stuff to to the experts and we're just going to focus on training people now. We do have interview preparation section. That has hundreds of additional out with him challenges We've got like we've updated a lot of the project. Oil Problems. Rosetta Code problems that made them interactive with like tests that you can in writing the browser instead of having to You know the old interface for whether was it's like a twenty year old website But it's just like you enter a number Berg and it tells you whether you're right or wrong it doesn't give you any more feedback than that and it. It just takes a long time to enter it So rather than having to do all that coding locally and then go and paper number into a web form if you're right We just modernized made an interactive experience. But so we've got lots of interview preparation stuff. We've also got this point. Probably hundreds of I got a job type posts on the form and we've got lots of articles from people who transition successfully from other fields into tech who successfully got jobs at Amazon or Google or other places like that telling how they went through that process like especially the thing that people underestimate the most is just the sheer numbers game that the modern job The modern developer job application occasion process constitutes is quite often for somebody. WHO's finished Rico? Camp or somebody who's going to boot camp to have to apply to hundreds jobs and then they'll start to get interviews and they'll start to get offers but we just try to instill in people the notion that this is hard uh-huh this is not easy. Anybody who tells you it's easy to go out and get a developer job. They're probably trying to sell you something because it's not easy that's right so we have all these resources and we have a supportive community. WHO's there to share and your accomplishments and you can just read lots of anecdotes that realized realized the statistics that we all know that there are tremendous number of developer jobs at all different levels Certainly there are a lot of middle tier in and senior jobs in the senior ones are the ones with the recruiters most actively go out and aggressively trying to recruit people but there are definitely tons of small medium level businesses. They just need some. You know the church or the Local Food Bank or the other organizations that want to have a nice website or just need somebody to help set up like a facebook group or configure. Like a wickes website. Or something like that from your vantage point. Can you see trends there. In in terms of Gideon by no means it easy but are we. Is it trending up in terms of the entry level opportunities in your opinion or just kind of been like a steady churn learn. Obviously this would be from your vantage point now like it's like based on numbers but so I could look at the numbers and we do have quite a bit of data that we've made public public we for the last three years. We didn't do it this year just because we already done it so many times already so much. Data is a lot of work We we do. What's called the new coder survey and it shows like how many u s about fifty questions? We like thirty thousand respondents. Says Really Nice huge day to set. Yeah significant significant from statistical standpoint And if you dig into that you can see like how many months of experience people had before they you know asserted applying for jobs or how long they working in for jobs and you can. You can sort of play with the numbers and figure that out. I don't have like a really well informed answer on that a lot of what I hear here is just at the street level. People like saying that they got a job where people saying they haven't gotten a job yet. in reality messy every employer is different every country's different too. Do they know European. I say European. That's really like a collection of city states right and then you know you go to India you go to China in a you know these other countries where free cooking big and and the markets completely different I've been to startups in Shanghai Where I walk in the room and half the people people working in the developable pin our free cocaine grads right so so there are definitely jobs out there For people. It's just a question of what those jobs look like. And how many applications you have to make in. How many people are competing for the same jobs? I will say this though getting a job. I think a lot of people think it's all about your skills but it's really about three things in my opinion. It's about your skills. It's about your reputation and it's about your network whom you know if you know the right people you can get in even with subpar skills subpar radiation. If you have have a great reputation you may not be the best developer but rankle know who you are from your blog posts or from your youtube channel for your podcast. Were or just from your open source projects that you've contributed to. Everyone was saying applies to de risk a choice right and the Rey de risk choices by some sort of assurance or certainty. If you have a decent reputation can kind of Beth. Decent Person De risking is exactly what I think employers are trying to ensure they're just trying to make the catastrophic choice that results in them having to terminate terminate somebody pay severance and then go through the entire job all over again yeah. It's it's costly. It's funny that Who you know come so it makes sense but we try to be in a world where it's not about who you know because it's it's almost seems unfair and yet it totally still is the facts except right right? That's what I mean like so if you don't know the right kind of people you can't build your reputation properly or at least maybe add to an area where you have less reputation you have somebody vouching for you evatt for lack of better terms if you have a network to some degree associated with you. They're they're they're therefore adding reputation the trustworthy you're right somebody worth betting on or taking a risk on and this is why like the local markets are so important people focus so much on silicon valley in like a hyper competitive like trying to get a job offer from Google facebook Amazon. But if you go to a lot of communities like we're here in Houston right and I live in. I live in the Dallas Metropolitan Poyton area and Jerry lives up in Omaha like these are all completely different tech ecosystem with different employers different hiring cultures Different circles of people that meet together for talks and Events and Different professional groups. I mean like if you learn your local Meta and if your content to stay in the city you're you are in. Currently there won't necessarily be like a clear road map for you to get to that job but if you pound the pavement and if you get to meet people I think that things will work out for you because you already doing a lot more work than most any job like you said Many companies. That aren't aren't traditional software. Companies need software people. And so as you know. The old saying goes offer eating the world..
