Hollywood Monsters with Mallory OMeara

"History is written by the winners by men early editors of science fiction anthologies choice to exclude by women and in doing so made many believe that women did not write science fiction in the genres earliest years. This is just one example. And by no. Means the only one mallory mira self-confessed monster lava and film. Ned discovered a similar story in one of her favourite monsters. Millicent patrick was one of disney's earliest female animators and went on to design one of the greatest film monsters of the creature from the black lagoon but a jealous smell. Coworker ensured that there was no prestigious career. A rating millicent. Mallory decided to set the record straight in her book. The lady from the black lagoon. Hollywood monsters and the lost legacy of millicent. Patrick and reestablish. Millicent of monster design mallory. Thank you for joining us. But before we get stuck into things would you please introduce yourself to our listeners. high Yeah thank you so much for having the ottoman cited to to talk about this with you. Three i m author of lady from the black lagoon an fulltime author. And i'm also fellow podcasters. I host the show reading glasses every week with my friend. brea grant. what did you hope to achieve by. Unearthing the story of million patrick and setting the record straight about her contribution to monster design. Well a few things honestly the impetus behind me working on in in writing from the black lagoon was just i wanted to know. Millicent has been my hero. Since i was a teenager and i wanted to satisfy my own personal curiosity i found out about her when i was seventeen and it just seemed creature from the black lagoon like nobody even knew if she was still alive. She didn't have a website. She didn't have a wikipedia entry. Nothing about her online. So i personally just really really wanted to know at as i started digging into her life and her work and in this book i i also just. I wanted people to know that we've always been here. You know i. I actually started working on this book before the metoo movement happened and while i think it's amazing that there's such a huge push right now to get more women in front of the camera behind the camera writing doing everything women everywhere in cosigned for me but i also think it's really important to have people know that women have always been here. We have a legacy here and millicent. Patrick is proof. That and if i could only unearth her story and bring it to the world than i could could prove it is funny. You say that. Because i remember i was a massive star trek fan still but i remember in high school being completely obsessed with original series star trek and then discovering that d c fontana was a woman and i was like women have been there from the beginning. We right star trek. Yeah so i. I definitely can get on board with excitement. It changes everything. I mean finding out that a woman who designed this incredible monster that i became completely obsessed with it changed my life. It made me realize up until that point all of my heroes in the monster world. Where met you know tom. Savini rick baker. Dick smith jack pierce. It never even occurred to me that women did those things and seeing just one single photo of seeing a woman working on the creature from the black lagoon. It broke my brain open. It was like being struck by lightning. And it you can. You can make a direct line from that moment in time in front of my computer. Seven seventeen to me becoming a filmmaker later on up reading a bit about medicine on. You mentioned that you back. Then she didn't have a wikipedia entry. She does have one now on your on it as well. Yes i mean we're competing is basically all from the bottom up until that point there was no there was really no biographical information about her and the stuff that was out there was largely false Sometimes because of Militants own she liked to fabricate biographical information about which was very fun for me to deal with as biographer But it's now now actually people who she is and she has a wikipedia. Entry people You google tons of stuff comes up. It's really it makes me really really happy. So how did she become raised from history in the first ice so the her boss at the universal studios monster shop and she worked there in the early nineteen fifties was a man named bud west more and he was part of a very very famous big family of makeup artist. The west morris His father actually. George west was the man who invented the idea of a makeup department so they were huge. Deal in hollywood at the time he had a massive amount of power and influence not just at universal but in the film world is a whole unfortunately he was also known for taking people's credit being very jealous of the other artists that worked with him if they were more successful or more talented than he was which wasn't hard to do And she designed creature and they shot the movie and it became very clear that the movie was going to be a huge hit. They the universal studios publicity department wanted to send millicent on a press tour to promote it and up until that point in history know in the fifties. There was no twitter. There was no. Imdb there is no way for people to really look into the details of of credits on films. You know back then. There was no like ten minutes end. Crawl at the end of a movie like we get now. There was only like these cards that gave the heads of department Credit for the things that they did so no matter. What but didn't design at on a movie increase in the credits creature. It says makeup. Bud west more So he never was challenged. People always just assume that he designed everything that came out of his shop

Philippines deports US Marine in transgender killing

"His anger in the Philippines after President Duterte a pardon the US Marine who had bean serving time in prison for killing a transgender woman in 2014 Joseph Scott Pemberton has been released on deported just over halfway through his 10 year prison sentence for the killing of Jennifer Lord. I've been hearing about the crime and the impact of the pardon from Nomi, Fontana's Thie, executive director of Gender and Development advocates, Filipinas and LGBTQ rights organization in the country. On the night of October. 11 2013, which was a Saturday transform and Jennifer Louder, met the American Joseph Scott Pemberton at a bar. They agreed through check in a motel a little over half an hour later, the US Marine leaves, and when the motel clerk checks in on Jennifer Loudy, he finds her Dead with her had in the toilet and her neck blackened with strangulation marks, and apparently she died from drowning. So because of that, wass as fiction by drowning, and he was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Yes, A year later, after a trial was held, Scott Pemberton was convicted. Ah, home inside in spite of the charges brought against him being murder, So it's AA degree lower. Murder and he was in jail for a six through 12 years, although the maximum for home so I could be up to 20 years, but he appealed his sentence. So it was shortened to just 10 years. So I'm here. He would have served just a little over five years and now he's being pardoned. Released. Sent back to the United States. What is your reaction to that? This is something that we do not accept. This is something that we will mouth primitive and something that we will never, ever forget, because the legacy of Jennifer loudest keys is that it is the first case in the Philippines at the successfully put an American serviceman was committed a crime in Philippine soil in jail. Convicted and jailed in the Philippians. So this means for almost a century that the Philippines has been a colony and in a new colony of the United States since Spain, which first colonizers handed our country over to them in 80 98. So many American soldiers have committed crimes in our country and have never been convicted, have never been put in jail. And what what is the significance of this for the trans community? For the trans community. This sounds are loud and clear message that the president is an enemy of the LGBT of the trans community and the LGBT Q our community in the Philippines and that in spite of his pronouncement that the president has been vocal about supporting LGBT Q. I writes in the Philippines, but this action proves didn't understand what LGBT Q I rights are and this interrogates his claims that he is a friend of the community. Yes, because his record is pretty Good, isn't it? When he was vice mayor of Davao City, he encouraged a council to pass anti discrimination ordinance that protected the LGBT community. He said that he was against bullying gay people. He has Made other comments in support of the the LGBT community. But you say his actions speak of something different. Yes, and those actions in the past or his record as a chief of Ah, off our city here in the Philippines? Is this a ruse? For me? It's It's really a Machiavellian. It's a very cunning politician, so he does things that will make him Popular to the people. But isn't it possible this? This is about broader diplomatic relationship with the United States, one that he has said different things about but ultimately he's decided that pardoning this American soldier was the right thing for the Philippines. We don't know for sure. And at this point everything will these speculative because as things stand it, for example, that the Democrats win and the NC Trump, who is friends with their and Where does that leave him in with Americans, But at the same time, we also feel that for the many human rights abuses that have been committed under his term, the president now has to find allies in the community of nations so that after he steps down, he will have those powerful friends to rely on for support because Certainly he will be held accountable for all the human rights abuses that happened under his term. Naomi Fontana's executive director of gender and development advocates, Filipinas and LGBTQ Rights Association in that country.

Why US Open Day 4 Felt Like A Grand Slam

"Primarily, stay for an predictions are all over the place on earth has happened today I mean. I woke up this morning and his feeling pretty good about my life. In prediction therms. Was Thinking about. Yulia potency of somehow in the quarterfinals, she's still going Alexandra Sandwich one the daily thing for me today, and you know, and then Miller round which has gotten lost and he was in the semi finals. And who else lost today you Hannah concert I mean. What are these people doing? Don't understand? Well did you have been you McGrath Renewal Final David? No that didn't some people some foolish people someone days, I couldn't possibly name. It makes you feel any but I haven't. I haven't looked through everybody's submitted predictions but I rather suspect that at the very least meals roundish today his stunk up a lot of people's prediction dreams. Honestly why does everybody? What are we? What are we all fall for this week before the tournament results think. It's just irritating. It was all we had to go on day. There's been knows tennis six. Full. Well. We should know better. Is All I'm saying, well, it was summed up beautifully by A. tweet that. Hanging was it one of our tweets today? It was really good saying that thinking Oh Gobi Migori the maybe it's no surprise that she lost because she hasn't played any tennis of any kind in six months and then going Opitz photonic Barranca that beater hasn't played any kind of Tennis v three years. During the time she was birthing and raising a child. I did a double take when I saw her name in the draw. Because I'd completely forgotten that she announced that she was coming back to tennis because she did it on the day that tennis was shutdown back in. Time and was abysmal the actual day I. Think it was the day Miami got caught off that she announced she was coming back. I presume she she's not. A big believer in sort of divine signaling. Because if she were, he would probably take indication that you shouldn't bother. Yeah. Thank naming slightly bad that I didn't actually know that she'd been away. That seems to have passed me by somehow. I just like to say congratulations to Fontana Bronco who have always enjoyed watching play tennis I just thought she retired. Gaping hole you felt for the last three is quite a finger on what it was. Yeah I, mean I've put her in in the past I've put her in various quarterfinals that have just not come to fruition. So I've got a bit of a beam abundance about that. If anybody's wondering what all this predictions is about basically when we crowd fund our podcast, every December we have a predictions competition that our highest level backers can enter and lots of them did and we've had a wonderful competition and I was going to win it like I did last year. And then I'm not winning it because things are not going heads. So Yeah I don't know what to say. Really let's start with Peron cover over Maruta parameter loves fast tennis matches doesn't she and? Parole Garbin immigrants who I think she started the match quite well. Tiled away dramatically yes. She was up break Mugabe, Reuther, but this is what? Does. This is totally in keeping with what she's been doing throughout her whole career, which is occasionally just having having a run out of nowhere where she takes out some seeds she's beaten should beat Venus Williams impact tobacco Wimbledon's, and she's also beaten Venus Williams another slam. She's a bit of a seed killer She's got an incredibly flat backhand and forehand, which she will occasionally slice and ruth did. Did Not. Particularly like that I actually thought the competed pretty well I thought she. She paid okay. She wasn't awful an but. Really. Had A had a way to mess her up and. This was this was the kind of match that she came back for I. Think she said she was looking for these feelings again on a court. So it was it was nice from that perspective. McGrath came up with a great word in her press conference she said. She said, he needed to see where she was tennis typically. Which I wish I thought was brilliant and that's because she didn't play any warmup event to the US Open because of her the line call injury kept out of Lexington and also the western and southern open so As. Much as Catherine back to to get to the final I think I had earned my quarters or semis. It's perhaps awesome. Not that surprising that that she's gone out early especially when you consider she was up against. An opponent who can do this kind of thing

The race problem in economics

"The American Economic Association or the A is the biggest and most important professional organization of economists in the country, and it recently made a statement saying that it had quote only begun to understand racism and its impact on our profession and our discipline. Black economists are severely underrepresented in the field of economics, according to a survey from the EA. Only about three percent of economists are black. Nearly half black economists say they have experienced discrimination in the profession, and only seventeen percent of black economists agreed with the statement that quote. People of my race are respected within the field, and this matters not just for the economics profession it matters for how all of us understand the whole economy and. And it matters how economic policy gets made John Jones is an economic analyst and the Managing Director for policy and research at the groundwork collaborative. What we have learned right now. Is that like we have a worse understanding of the economy because we haven't been listening to economists of color like we're actually worse at economics, because we have denied a voice to folks who understand the different way, so here's an example before the financial crisis of two thousand eight, the unemployment rate for black Americans started rising earlier and more sharply than the unemployment rate for White Americans. In fact, this often happens before recessions, and if there had been more black policymakers or black economists who were advising policymakers. Who understood this dynamic black workers are often the first to lose their jobs before a recession than it is at least possible that policymakers would've reacted more quickly to help the economy, and you might have also had new in different ideas for how to help the Economy John L. Herself along with the economist. Jared Bernstein recently published one such idea. It is a proposal that the Federal Reserve should focus explicitly on the black unemployment rate when it makes decisions about managing the economy, black workers restorick starkly have been roughly twice as likely to be unemployed as white workers, so according to Gino's proposal, focusing on the black unemployment rate would ensure that everyone benefits from A. A strong economy, and as for how to get more economists of color into the economics profession, Juno says one idea is for there to be more. Black economists included among the gatekeepers of economics at universities and economics journals, who are the editors at the top journals who are the deans who recruit new cohorts Janelle release this idea to an early experience of her own. When Economists Sandy dirty recruited her to Duke University, her own career and her contributions to economic ideas, she says might have ended up on a totally different path if he hadn't done that. I was entirely recruited because sandy dairy was a tenured professor at Duke and wanted more students of color. But you know like if he's not promoted to have tenure and job security to be able to take a risk on someone else like. Students of color don't get recruited. The events of recent months have led to renewed discussion among economists and economic policy. For more ways to fight racism inside the profession and to include more diverse approaches to studying economics font, the crowd is a senior research assistant at the Federal Reserve, and she is the CO founder of the sadie collective, a group that supports young black women who want to enter the field of economics with everything that's going on now with the covid nineteen pandemic with the higher unemployment rates in the black community. With the police brutality, the issue of that and the death of George Floyd and what that has incited. We cannot afford for things to go back to how they were Fontana notes that only a tiny share of research papers, especially at the top economics, journals actually study race and racial discrimination and the fact that they don't win. Economics is a tool that's used to inform. Policy is very problematic, so a reckoning would mean that there would be a culture shift. Shift in economics, a number of block economists have also said that they were discouraged early in their careers from studying topics about race and racial discrimination, because they would not get published where they would not advance in the profession, recent study looked at the almost fourteen thousand research papers published between Nineteen, Ninety and twenty eighteen at in the most important economics journals. Journals. Only a hundred and five of those papers impurity tested for different kinds of discrimination, including racial discrimination, though fund is quick to add that there are some economists who have long been doing the work of trying to understand the effects of racism and racial discrimination on the economy. She points to journals like the review of black political economy which is published by the National Economic Association. It's just that this is not really widely read or widely embraced within the mainstream of the economics profession.

"It is Hey so what what's going on over there what's the word on the street I know that you've been extremely busy and and by the way the work you're doing like collecting the information and not necessarily concentrating on on exactly what's going on the street but why it's going on you've been terrific on this body unbelievable thanks so much yet one of the things that we've been trying to figure out over the last few days is where is all the trouble coming from because clearly the bulk of the people who have been hitting the streets with the signs with the demonstrations with the protest had nothing to do with the mess that we've seen over a few nights over the weekend I mean the worst of it seem to be Saturday night in the LA's Fairfax district and then there was something of a repeat performance in Santa Monica and we saw some of it to go down to Long Beach and certainly some in the San Fernando Valley although it seems like and check me on this if I'm wrong but it seems like over the last couple of days the volume has been turned down on the unrest and and the looting and the arson right it seems much smaller and not quite as many people involved so we've been trying to find out who are the people that are responsible for the trouble and in some other cities not here in southern California but in the Midwest in back east there was word spreading that there were groups of outside agitators I think is the right buzz word who are coming into town and causing all the trouble we want to find out if that was happening here so we got hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of booking records from arrests that were made beginning last Thursday all the way through yesterday at midnight and lo and behold the people who've been locked up on the most serious charges not the people who get arrested for sitting in the street and volunteering to be arrested as an act of civil disobedience rather the people who are out to do harm allegedly and have been nabbed by police in the active perhaps looting or vandalism or arson who are they they're all from southern California for the most part they all have LA county addresses there are a few flyers from Fontana and maybe some from the antelope valley but for the most part from the corner of southern California we found I think five or six people who were from out of state I want one from Michigan and one from New York one from Chicago but it you know LA is a town that's full of people from out of town so it's hard to tell if those are folks who came in to LA to cause trouble or they just happen to be wrapped up in this so as a non it's not mostly outside agitators then you're saying it's mostly southern Californians granted we don't know who everybody is this out on the street but all of this small slice of the people who were arrested on the most serious charges felonies here not good no not little stuff they're predominantly from southern California and for one reason or another most of them are already out of jail in fact most of them were out of jail within twelve hours of being arrested we've been looking into that as well hi you have the number of people being rearrested none that's that's one of the other interesting things that as we look through the records beginning Thursday night again through midnight last night we got all the names we put the names in a huge spreadsheet and alphabetize them looking for repeat offenders and at least as far as the felony cases go we didn't see any wow granted that's a again a small fraction of the people that were involved because not everybody that was out looting in doing terrible things got arrested it's only a fraction of them they did on top of that it's a a fraction of all of the people who got locked up the numbers were hearing pretty staggering between Thursday and today it is well over two thousand people that have been through the booking process most of them again on those low level charges for violating the curfew order or failing to disperse when police declare a particular demonstration and unlawful gathering that's going to be the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of those hundreds there's you know maybe a few hundred that were booked on suspicion of felonies so that's the group that we're looking at and then trying to extract out some information that tells us more about what the heck's

"House Democrats are launching an investigation into the firing of another inspector general this time at the state department president trump dismissing Steve clinic late last Friday after secretary of state Mike Pompeii asked him to they've been reports for awhile of grumbling in the department about Pantera using taxpayer funds for personal services the state department watchdog was reportedly looking into those complaints NPR diplomatic correspondent Michele Kelemen is here and Michele so counting up in the past six weeks trump fired the intelligence community I G. the acting defense department I. G. and the acting health and Human Services IG a pattern for perhaps your sense of what's going on while Democrats are clearly seen a pattern and they're looking for ways now to strengthen the protections four inspector generals there been a few Republicans expressing concern senator Mitt Romney for instance over the weekends and the firing of multiple inspectors general is unprecedented and a threat to accountable democracy Susan Collins tweeted over the weekend that the president had not provided the kind of justification for the removal of the state department's IG as required by law that she helped author but for the most part Republicans have been pretty silent about this trend yeah well and we've known for a while that there were grumblings as we said about Mike Pompeo the secretary of state attention to using taxpayer money for personal purposes now reports that when it was looking into this what can you tell us about what he was looking at well we're hearing from Democrats on the hill that about a couple of things that he was investigating there's a report today from The Washington Post enough source did confirm it for me that the inspector general had mostly completed an investigation into the secretary's controversial decision to get around opposition in Congress and green light billions of dollars in arms sales to the Saudis he had this emergency declaration that raised a lot of eyebrows last year and the I.

S. government employee of do personal errands for him and for his wife things like picking up the dog at the groomers or things like that when I ask the inspector general's office over the weekend I was told that they can't confirm or deny any particular investigation and the state department has refused to comment on any of that moon what about other members of the state department what are your sources telling you about their thoughts about this well I I think there were you know Lynn it was a pretty well respected guy and they're kind of it some people said they were kind of numb at this point there is definitely a concern last year CNN did this whole report about some security agents feeling like they've become over eats with guns there were a lot of concerns last year that I heard about when that Mrs Fontana was on trips with the secretary so that these these have been things that have been growing yeah well and as you said the Democrats has certainly been vocal about this year's the speaker Nancy Pelosi on face the nation yesterday the president has the right to fire any federal employee but the fact is if it looks like it's in retaliation for something that the attorney the I. G. the inspector general is doing that could be unlawful so what is your sense of repercussions if upon pale of war you know president trump is as follows he just said he has the right to fire federal employees well the Democrats on the hill have opened an investigation they're asking for the state department to hold any documents that they have that are related to this they need to find out if it was in retaliation for any of these issues that that Steve when I had been investigating I'd also say that you know it's not that he was he was very controversial I mean he played kind of a minor role in the whole impeachment saga but there were a couple of IG reports that that he had done recently that sort of angered top management there were things about personnel matters dealing with the trump administration officials retaliating against those who they call Obama holdovers at the department one report led to the resignation of an Assistant Secretary of state for international organizations and another was critical of one of Pompey's top aides Iran guy Brian hook so you know if if it was in retaliation for any of these things then that could be a problem for them we'll see how this unfolds NPR diplomatic correspondent Michele Kelemen thanks as always sure thank thank

First mountain bike from cozy and I still. Have it today It's still works I don't use it as much Clinton about, the birds now but I love. Cozy? You. Guys have some really great programs you're going to be talking about bike safety because this is the time, of year a lot of people on the bikes riding through. The city whipping around and they're supposed to be staying there bike lanes? But that. Doesn't happen too often right correct and, you wanna make sure you have the. Right, rules of the road when it comes to your bikes. A lose from coach is going to help us out. Here what's your top tip that you would, say for all bikers out there Well I wear helmets Yes, always wear a helmet but have? You seen, my hair I mean it's really. Difficult to contain this this main in? A, in a helmet That's one, thing everybody I says my hair. At that, point at. An accident if you have to wear one of those looking square things on. Your head the, one? Look, as good anyways so, yeah I agree I think it's? More more, safe to have a noggin that's. Protected than hair that's messed up correct Yeah So you also have on this list cream for moisturizer to keep. Dry why would is that for like chafing down there or especially when you do long, distances you have a lot of, moisture a lot of friction just like running due to put anti shaping under armpits under even. Feet, yes because of all that friction builds up and you get a shaping be. Uncomfortable Yeah a little redness on the inner thigh Yeah I was riding heck, of a lot when I got my bike I. Around. Downtown Chicago noticed that was, an issue yes there could be an issue especially depends. On how you ride for the casual writer they might not right miles. And miles and speed might not need it but anybody who's putting a, couple of good miles and go naked speed. You definitely it's best to, use it now when I first started writing I got fancy and I got. The, the. Shoe clips on the pedals, penalty yes, yeah and but not the, ones I guess what they're. Not shoe clips but they're like the snug? Your. Feet into the front of until cages Okay so at. Tokyo, just. Put on a used it, but I, always thought that I need, special sneakers was was my, workout shoes just fine with Tokyo it's okay It's not as a fishing as using pedals and shoes which, is a better use. Of it Ditto cages for Kashmir might be okay but it safely purposes to me if you have, an emergency and, you're, stuck on those cages yet to pull back both lace. At ten times not, as easy yes with cycling shoes and. Pedaled sway. You, clip in completely everybody's afraid at first but, for a couple. Of good reasons it's safer naturally. Your, feet will go sideways to jump off which is high you clip off on this paddles also these. Shoes are stiffer to get more power output and you're not flexing. Your feet the wrong way so now losing energy plus you're not pitching those. Nerve underneath defeat if he'd had signed, to flex the way. You walk not the opposite direction now I wanna talk about the second but you're absolutely right I've actually been situations where I've had to quickly get my feet out of. There. And I bid it a couple of times because I couldn't get him out quick. Enough yes so your recommendation is skipped those and go, from where the ones that clip on if you. Want efficiency and you look in that way go with shoes? And pedal system that kept together at what point do, you know you're ready for that next Jump up in investing..
