"Francesca, what does black liberation look like to you? What black liberation looks like to me is the first word that comes to mind is freedom and I mean that in the broadest sense. So the freedom for people to be exactly who they are on their own terms, freedom and terms of free time, having the time having the resources to pursue people's dreams and people having the time and resources to simply be to enjoy themselves to find moments of pleasure and to be with the people they love. And I'd also say for me, but I think about liberation, I'm always thinking about liberation for all. So I think sometimes in terms of how the media frames black liberation organizing or questions to do activism, there is maybe a focus on the experiences of a select few, whether it really considering the experiences of those who are most marginalized or most depressed. And I think black liberation has to be for everybody and that means pursuing goals that ultimately result in a better world for all. Why choose proven quality sleep from sleep number?

So tell me, how does your work help us get towards a vision of black liberation that you share? So I'd like to think that my work contributes to that in various different ways, but I'm also well aware of the incredible work that so many other people are doing. But I say that one of the ways I consider what liberation is goals are one of the ways I reflect on the relationship between activism between expressions of agency between media and creativity is looking at how black digital experiences can be at the forefront of incredible forms of collectiveness, consciousness raising, community building, and collaborating and solidarity formation as well. But at the same time that involves being critically aware of those movements when organizations, commercial entities try to repackage and try to essentially reframe block liberationist work in ways that ultimately about them pursuing profit. And this means that my work has involved critically analyzing various different adverse, various different pieces of content, some of the moments we've seen in brands have tried to reposition themselves in different ways to participate in conversations to do activism when they've never even uttered the words, black activism before. And I guess at the core of my work is always a concern with questions to do with identity and equality, an ideology. So I'd like to thank that my writing contributes to critical understandings of the fraught relationship between consumer culture between activism between the lives of black people and I'd like to think that it does that in a way that is really reflecting the innovative work of black people and is appreciative of the innovative work of black people, but is also shining a light on the different risks and challenges that we might navigate in the process of doing that work. Okay, so let's look at the history of some of these issues that you brought up. How far back can you date some of the early instances of this spectacular organization? Yeah, so I'd say, even though a lot of my work deals with the digital, this is definitely something that's been around a lot longer before then. So I think if we look at the history of media, whether that is film, whether that's TV print, we look at issues to do with politics and representation. There are so many examples of the emergence of consumer culture as we know it. And what is essentially the oppression of black people. So oftentimes when I'm writing about this, I'm thinking about how at various different points in history and this is an ongoing process. I would never suggest otherwise that black people have been treated as mere commodities or a means to commercial ends. That means that although what we're seeing right now includes activity on social media platforms or activity on online content sharing sites that form spectacular for images of black people and their work is essentially exoticized and objectified by these different commercial organizations and that itself is not new, but how it looks is definitely shaped by her digital culture has developed. What is the through line? It seems to be this spectacular, but what else in addition to that? And then what does the digital world we're in now? What does that allow for, that wasn't allowed for in the past in terms of this exploitation? I think what the digital allows for or what the digital has changed includes if we take a really clear example of platform like TikTok where we've seen on the one hand black content creators producing incredibly impactful content and material that goes viral material that is picked up and a whole host of different media and cultural outlets on the one hand we see the visibility of this work, but on the other we see various content creators, various and white and non black content creators trying to replicate that material in ways that ultimately benefits them. And I use that example because I think when we're dealing with the digital, we've seen some times when black people have been able to create and share content with some degree of autonomy and maybe in a way that involves bypassing some of the more traditional media industry gatekeepers. But that also means that that content is often at risk of being essentially appropriated and misused by others who see the impact the content has and essentially trying to try to pass it off as their own. And I think all of this connects to the focus on clickbait culture that is associated with a lot of digital technology, the focus on speed and viral culture and what that then means for the speed at which people will try to co opt the content of black people. So and this might be getting ahead a little bit, but when I hear this type of sort of co opting, especially creative production, do you see any opportunity there? Does he work dive into any opportunity for black folks to reclaim or to brand our stuff in a different way? Sure, so I'd say NFTs is an area I've ventured into so much, but I would say one of the main things I've been thinking about to do with these opportunities to approach stuff differently is the power involved in boundaries. And I guess what I mean by that is sometimes when we think about and speak about black digital culture, there's a strong focus on what feels very public and very visible, but there's always so many other examples of black digital creativity, black digital kinship that involve people very strategically thinking about what they choose to share when truly choose to share that with. And I guess what I've been here is the significant rule of, say, close digital spaces, the significant role of platforms.

"We, as black folks, are no strangers to being exploited. For centuries, our innovations, our art, and our very bodies have been commodified. And squeeze dry of anything that can be spun into capital. And it ain't slowed down. It's only been digitized. And it seems that anything goes in the age of the Internet and social media. I'm Jay from push black and you're listening to black history year. Whether we realize it or not, brands are fixtures in our Internet lives. Every time we hop on, Facebook or Twitter, Instagram, or any other social platform, we're running into brands who use insidious tactics to get into our pockets. They'll do things like create a CGI influencer who can perform blackness. Those still are online creativity. And they'll align themselves as black allies when they just want black dollars. It's digital anti blackness, and it's something we got to talk about. As we live more and more of our lives on the Internet. To go in depth about this, we're talking with doctor Francesca so bandai. Francesca is a senior lecturer in digital media studies at the school of journalism, media, and culture, at Cardiff university. She's a researcher and a writer. She's got several books, including the digital lives of black women in Britain. And she's published work about woke washing. Digital re presentations of black people and how brands misuse exploit and commercialize notions like black social justice activism. You can catch her talking about digital to remix culture, race, gender, celebrity, and black diasporic media. We're going to get into all that a little later. Francesca took time to sit with us all the way from across the pond in the UK, but the time difference could not stop an incredible conversation from happening. So stay tuned..
Transgender Porn 'Star' Angelina Please Is Found Dead
"The New York Post has a story. That the porn community is mourning the loss of adult film star star. Angelina, please. She was found dead after going missing for nearly a week. She was 24 years old. Police apparently found the body of the porn star whose real name is Francesca Elizabeth. In the Las Vegas home, while responding to calls, saying that she hadn't been seen or heard from in 5 days. She hadn't been seen, hadn't been seen or heard from in 5 days. There apparently were no signs of foul play or violence in her house at the time. I love how heavy I have to throw this bullshit in. You know, we don't know what happened. There's no foul play. There's no violence. But the Clark county medical examiner hasn't disclosed further details regarding pleases time of death or on top she results as the case is still pending. I'm reading this story going, wow, a porn star I've never heard of is dead. A female porn star is dead. I got to the 6th 6th paragraph, and that's when they mention that she is a transgender porno player.

"An NHS doctor public health academic and activist. Doctor bob gill is an NHS doctor campaigner and creator of the documentary, the great NHS highest. Please welcome to the stage, Rita and barb. Arena, hello, thank you so much for coming out, doctor Rita. Thanks. I really appreciate your time and also your extensive expertise. I'm sure you've got other things to be doing. I'm from. And doctor brogue, thank you very much for coming. Thank you for inviting me. We're very, very excited to hear what you've got to say. Now we're also going to be joined by somebody on the screen above. This is very exciting for us. This is the hybrid world we live in now. Wow. Our next guest is a comedian speaker actress writer and active campaigner. Please welcome to the screen. Francesco Martinez. Hello, hello. It's delightful to see. Am I really big? You're my son. You are like God. You are. You are. You're the size of a building. This is sort of like Godzilla Martinez to be honest. I'll take that. Yeah, well I'm very excited. I'm sorry. We're going to have to say, oh, we can see you down here, so actually, we're better off looking here. Yeah. I was a little camera so this way. And so if we turn around Francesca can't see us. So we're seeing you here hello Francesca. Can you see us? No, I can't. I can hear your lovely boyfriend. Oh, yeah, you can't see us. In fact, I did get the memo about that. But don't worry me because I'm getting you very beautiful and photoshopped. Keep imagining us that way, yes. Oh, I think we won't send pictures. We feel very privileged to have this episode tonight here at the guilt of feminist. Because I think we're going to get some insights that we wouldn't otherwise have. And we really do need to know about. So first of all, I'm going to go to you bob. Can you give us the privatisation overview? So for anyone who lives as a globally, the United Kingdom is very proud of its socialized medicine. And we've had that since about the 50s, and that was hard fought for hard one and Americans are always so astounded that whatever we've got, we can go, we can get it seen to a prescription is 7 quid. And if you really can't afford it, the government will pay your prescriptions as well. Doesn't matter what kind of medication you want. It's 7 quid. And if you need an operation, it's all there. So we don't have a history of privatized medicine in this country. Of course we do have private medicine options like buoy, but they have to be better than the NHS or no one would use them and very few people do. Compared to our population, only rich people. Only the kind of people that run the country generally have beeper or similar. So bob, can you tell us what's going down with privatization in this country? Sure. While I was listening to you early hours worried about drifting into men's planing. So forgive me. No bob, we've specifically booked you to mansplain. Okay. I should have said that in the bio doctor bob is an NHS doctor campaigner and mansplain. Who creates it, but you're not matured 'cause man's spreading is telling us that we already know as if we don't know it. You are just explaining because we don't know. We wouldn't want to know. So you're invited here as an honored guest, whatever you tell us. Unless you tell us like feminism is about equality. I'm not going to show this. It's best that you don't bother. Stick to your expertise. So I will take you very quickly through what's been going on is taken several decades. It spans the political spectrum. In fact, it closely follows my career. It started back in 1988. That's when I went to university. And that's when a document was produced by MP's olive and Jordan redwood called Britain's biggest enterprise. This was commissioned by a right wing think tank called the center for policy studies. And it set out how we would go from a publicly funded publicly provided system to an American style insurance system without anybody noticing. And it said, without anyone noticing. No, I put that bit in. Oh, okay. But there was the agenda you think. That was the agen no thinking about it. They quite clearly put it in there. There were 5 steps. And this is how we're going to achieve it. But central to the plan was to keep it as quiet as possible, otherwise it'd be a significant public pushback. And what they've what they've actually achieved, I've explained this as running a marathon, the privatization marathon. They've done 25 miles. And now they've come back to the stadium. This is the final stretch. What they've achieved is introduced a market a totally bogus market up until 2012. Where you had the buying and selling of healthcare services within the NHS. They've installed a very bloated managerial structure which sucks out a significant proportion of the healthcare cost. And they have set up the NHS assets to be stripped. And if I divide that up into three, you have the land and the property, you have the patient data and of most interest now is the NHS budget. And while they've achieved so much, most of the staff and unfortunate most of the patients in the public have no idea. Because we're not being told, the NHS logo appears everywhere. We're still not paying when we access services. So it appears as if nothing has changed. The reality is that we're very close to finishing the job and what the current bill that we are here to try and raise your awareness about what the current bill will do is essentially turn the NHS into a logo and a funding stream. The NHS will no longer be a provider. Everything will be outsourced. And the control of the budgets will be handed over to united health and similar companies. America's biggest insurance company, private insurance company. This bill is currently waiting to be turned into a law. Yeah, so it's been through his had three reigns in parliament has been to the committee stage. It will come back to parliament. Why have we had absolute zero coverage on the main media, so sort of television and main broadsheets haven't even touched on the fact that this bill is about to go through and what the impact will mean for every single person in this country. Is this a question for you Rita? Yeah, so I called up a friend before the show who works in the media. And I said, why aren't you covering it? And he said, that most of the stuff that's in the media is what is happening in government and the sort of battles that are happening in government. Because that is what brings stuff to the forefront. And so there's something to be said about the lack of clear opposition from the opposition. Because really we need to be debating this quite publicly. And the fact that we're not, I think, should be very concerning. But then I guess if we look at the government's and the media's track record over the pandemic, I mean, around the world, we are known as plague island..

"You are the ultimate New Yorker, okay? All of us had problems with with Ed Koch. You had real problems with that Koch. But he was in New Yorker. You didn't get the impression that, you know, he kind of took the train down from Cambridge, Massachusetts. He sounded like a New Yorker. You have been in New York, your whole life. Tell us a little bit about your biography for people are just tuning in because I want people to know you who you are. I came out of a blue collar working class background in canarsie Brooklyn. My father, merchant seaman Chester for 55 years and my mother, Francesca raised both myself and my two sisters who are directly involved in my campaign to become mayor. But if we look at it, my father when he would return from being offshore for 8 months of the year, we would go down in the 1960s to an area called the boundary. Right now in Manhattan, you would have to take a reverse mortgage just to get parking space down there. Never mind living space. But back then it was where auditions and the flop houses were. What's called the derelict bombs they referred to them. And my father knew some of these men. Because he had previously been seaman with him. And he said to me, there by the grace of God go you Curtis, at any moment, this could happen to any one of us. I need to have conversation with these men. And I understood that that early age you had to be caring and compassionate. And so that's what I've done for 42 years as leader of the guardian angel. It's not just in New York City, but around the

A was a major major project that we were very happy to take on and and honnor to take on by a weak little spread this effort award theaters in the in the world. I mean is not certainly something we can possibly do. I sincerely hope that there. There are more protests. Like this to come along because look the arts were really very very badly affected by the pandemic. You know we we as a winery also because not only we produce wine by. We have very strong tourism presence. You know we. We have a breakfast. We we provide when tasting so and all that last year was very very tough. A came back a little bit in the summer but nothing to walk to we as oppose the we usually we never. We usually work talk. For the for the arts you know dissect was really affected completely you know. I wasn't massive massive damage. That was the sector. So i will be fantastic if other wineries. Cd says in example this opinion to support other theaters. You know there are some marvellous Theaters all over the world semi-rural if not just as bad art projects and i think these partnerships are fantastic. Because you know when the truth is more and more life change with hispanic more and more people are maybe unable to go and see this performances by impersonal by. We're all watching the more or line now so we are definitely more atop. They're so why not have also bottle of wine that support your favorite theater while you're watching their performances thome you know you can drink glass wind with france and still support youth yet so i think these are beautiful concepts of the also you know what i think is call social enterprises trying to find ways with your own business to help in other aspects of the society and for us both for my brother neither Become buried is with if you to do. And we have decided that you know if we manage to place our something be done wine as representation. All of the The art we really have achieved something if people when they want to take the wine and of the arts they think about our neighbor our wine i think you know we have achieved something very aborted for four a. I think it's a really exciting project and like you say. I really hope that there's more interaction between the different arts. They ought winemaking and then dons music culture in general. I think it's a really lovely idea to have different aspects of our culture. Live coming together to support each other during the pandemic before we go. I i have to ask you because things are beginning to open up a little bit. And i wondered if there is a ballet or a piece of in particular that you would love to be able to see next time. You're in london at the royal opera house. Oh yes definitely i mean. I've i've got my favorites. And i have to admit that. In my our labels. They are very classic. Euro might tastes imbalanced by a classic. And i like. I like the you know the must classic masterpieces bar. I am very much forward to watch gain swan lake because the vehicle that we produced to represent this project was field. Both of the winery and royal opera house when did he and was completely shut down and are these images in the videos that we have producing their on our youtube channel. All the ashley deed the damn so there has also designed the label there. She's dancing swan lake by ourselves in the completely empty and i think that they ask such a strong images that they're really really espresso lot of the feelings that were going through all of us in the past few months when things were really very tough. I hope this dark moments are over and we can all move forward for me. Those images will always represent something that very meeting for so yes in. My case is deeply swan lake. And you know. I can't wait to go back. And see also ashley person down syndrome that beautiful stage. I really hope that it won't be too long before you will be that toasting ashley with a gloss of this beautiful line. Francesca thank you so much for joining me on.

"That we can offer for this and he talked about the importance of the packaging as i understand it. The label for the wine was actually designed by fest. Artist of the royal. Ballet ashley dean. Can you talk a little bit about how the process worked that. The collaboration with ashley yes absolutely. So from the very beginning. I thought we need to have a picture of a dancer. Awesome dancing pose or something on the labor right. No only because he would be quite unique coming. Honestly i've i haven't seen in my life. That many labels with a dance impose but also because of the connection with the theater and the royal opera house the royal ballots so i started inquiring with them and from the beginning said look we have an idea. So we have this Young dancer actually dean. And she's not only an amazing dancer but she's also a fantastic artists and she produced this beautiful line. Drawing in there are very very elegant and we would like you to introduce her you and see whether you know you can commission a piece of art to her the label so they put in in dutch over the city. I you know. I've only met Ashley a few times now it. It said that you know with all this lockdowns have restriction. All this negotiation had to be done remotely abbad sheep reduced to design to and i had to choose one and i think what you produce was absolutely stunned in an goes beautifully for the label. Our labels the entire a production of our wines has labels there. I very clock secure when my mother was adamant that in the cheese farm knew we had to have a classic label and this one Suits the heritage should desire. Work that ashley produced a suits their heritage of our winery beautifully. It is a simple design We chose the colors ride than gold. Because are the colors. Are the curtains of the stage of the royal opera house and it was a really represents dispatch ship between. I was more boutique. Winery in the center of piedmont and this massive very important theater in the in the central lab i have to say the designers absolutely beautiful in unready captures the elegance of ballet don's but also the elegance and but also power of the wind so i think it's been a really nice collaboration to to bring those two things together in show it so clearly on the label. Yes thank you and you know. I feel that the reason a lot in common before between the ballot y making rights like like all these dancers the first years and years of their work and life effort into this art taking massive risks. Because you know you anything sometimes things go wrong they injure or you know from me comes along and they are you know they can perform for a year essentially is literally a year that the head close and they you know they couldn't Perform to live members of the public so the same kind of risks that we take in winemaking you know. You can't debate you venus beautifully. Everything is going fantastically and some hailstorms or you know the frosting. Jeremy always have these. These are the so hard to control of particularly for someone like me. That comes from a finance background for the first radius of my my careers ami to to see now in agriculture the suitable risks. That we take a weekend not control. Basically it. It's something that i am very passionate about that. I am terrified but it. Because i know how much we invest in terms of effort in terms of you know money that we have to put into each era that we cultivate our veneers with so much fashion. We produced the winds at the winery. And that you know some of these risks you can control them what you do your best. of course. We all tried to to manage using all the the things that we possibly can but there are certain things like the web of a we can control so i very much sympathize for the aspect within ballot. Then the other element is really. The elegant wine and the fed is well-balanced. This ain't museum ballet. You know you have these these dancers that produce something for the spectators. Ill looks incredibly light and elegant. They do this marvelous jumps that look so easy but the truth is that you're not to produce something like that and to make look is you have to have worked for many many many years and you know it's really a fantastic arata. The same is why making you know we have a grape like a barbara that sometimes while without sometimes it is can be a difficult. Grape can be a very vigorous grapes. And you have to tame it you have to turn it into something that can be so beautifully balanced and gun the they can give you a very elegant wine so you know. I see a lot of similarities. There i think that's a really beautiful comparison. 'cause i completely agree. That don said it's best wine at its best seems effortless to the person watching consuming but behind all of that. There's so much there's so much time training is all the whack the vineyards and yet you get this beautiful result. That looks so easy. So i think that's a perfect comparison so obviously you chose a british institution throw ballot royal opera house because of this lifelong connection with a with a client a friend. I wanted a few so this is the first of many potential partnerships. All perhaps something that the wine world kundu more this collaboration.

Stay regularly come visit as the winery and one of these Close frendo as a client has been for. Many years is a former dancer of the royal ballet. Former member of the royal opera house His name is ross. Mcgibbon is now a six years. Old gentlemen obviously doesn't dance anymore but he still very connected to the royal opera house and i was talking to him and he was describing to me this sense of complete loss and panic because they had to close the theater and the theater needs people attending performances to survive. So you know when you are told the in a couple of days you have to close the doors and everybody sent home. And you're only diocese on his cancelled. And you know it was describing. How common garton. Atlanta was completely empty. There was a sense of this elation. Yeah i really find for emma. And i i know how much love going to the royal opera house. I personally go every time. That i find myself in london and i was very touched by this story. And then the Thinking at that moment that you know maybe we should do something in collaboration with the theater and then i saw a couple of days later i called him i can. I proposed the idea to him. I said look what about if we create spatial label and the we royal opera house and we offer sounded the proceeds from the sale of the wine to the theater in support of that are in the artist so he Us basically to the royal opera house and it was obviously a very long negotiation. Because it's such high-profile the sa He actually took a long time. And then there was the designing of the labor and they will process Cited that moment. So i wanted. Can you tell us Which wine was chosen for the partnership. Maybe i know you have some ideas about the connections. You see between wine and ballet these two great auk's that have come together in this wine you've made half salute is so i mean of course we we're the partners such prestigious level so we could only offer the best of the best of what we make the best of the best of what we produce is our baradosti superiority. Santa miano Which is a you know. A pure berbera aged in barrique sephora minimum of eighteen months. it's a wine with grace thrasher and elegance.

"I agree with you. It would take somebody like incredibly special not just special but like a person that i felt like next level feelings about to just take my time or whatever. I don't need a partner. Who gets that like. I work and i'm away a lot and it's not them. It's just that's the nature of my job. So yeah i just. It's a lot because you travel a lot I use to this. Could be the change. Also maybe now you meet someone that can work remotely because we're now all working remotely. Maybe in work before but now it's going to work for you home so i did a thing that maybe it was bad so i wrote down all of the qualities i wanted in a partner. I was like very very specific. A permanent envelope. And then i put it in the mailbox. I just addressed it to like one two three anywhere. I love an put the zip code. And now that i'm thinking about it. I'm like maybe. I sent level way and i should write it down in like keep it with me so i'm bringing it towards me and not away from me. This is cheap. I do love the idea of just mailing. Where the hell does that. Someone's going to open up and be like i want a big old. Dick quotes was one of those things. I wanted to be deep dicked. I want him. Never big dick. I want him to like me. I want to be nice to me. There's a lot of things. it was very important gina. what just after. I got divorced. If i wasn't even divorced. I met somebody who he was actually a neighbor and it kind of got me through my divorce and i was still living with my ex husband. Had like a one year old baby and we had to live together for a period of six months. And thus fucking tough living with someone as you like it was awful and i truly got threat by just daytime and apron. The next day i mean local dick convenient. Wait until the baby's asleep. And i thought it was brilliant and i've realized you either get someone you find really attractive or you get a big dick. You do never get the two together. Yeah i guess. Last few days. I dated for more than three days was like kind of cute in a way. We're like when i was drunk. Ooh you're cute and then sober be like i don't. I was really indifferent about him sober but he had the biggest fucking dick. I never see him and he pulled down his pants. I just went. Oh my i don't think he clocked it but i fully like wow delightful and then it did another guy who i thought was so attractive upon site. I was like you are so fucking hot. And then he pulled on his pants. And i was like ooh a grower. Not show where grow or shower. It was neither it was a there was there was growing. There was nothing some upsetting. Yes for me. It was and i know some listeners will be like. It's not nice to talk about people's pena says but it's like i don't know it's my it's what i like. It's what i want. It wasn't attracted to some. It wasn't attached to someone who was nice to me. So that's another thing about it but mental women all the time women's bodies all the fucking time. I love that we can now objectify them. The way they james is completely normal and your podcast is pretty much one of the only ones i notice you took about a guys day can be like fuck yourself and even at the salon now we goals coming in what you get in a spare time for a dick appointment on on what you think. It's about time we we do the fucking same. I'm all for it. I say that. But i'm tired of reading people's comments where they tell me that it's not nice so i do these little disclaimers now because you can't fucking say anything without someone going i mean how would you feel something and i'm like i wouldn't care i don't give a shit. Yeah a people say nasty things about me all the time but like i don't know i wanna big deck. That's that's me. That's what want but also if it's a tiny dick attached to a nice person who learns other ways to please me that's great too but a big. I just been a long time. And all i want is to be pounded but i did make a appointment for two weeks after my second shot because they say like you should wait to. I think i don't know. I read that somewhere but so i i like all right two weeks now. Let's do this. I got a hotel room. And i'm very excited about it. You can is your own as she. She's had a lot of time inside a lot of time with herself. Shown like is john so yeah. I was like we to make this happen. I'm like counting down the days. Oh lord i now feel like. I need to be like making preparations but my kid in i've got six month old twins. Nothing is happening. For least i'm going to say another six months. I'm going to say christmas. Twenty twenty. why are we doing right now. I mean. I said twenty twenty the other day and now we're almost midway through twenty twenty one can you even it's terrifying. Well i think christmas twenty twenty one is when i'm going to have sex for the next time i'm very excited about it there. I like it but also get a babysitter now. That breastfed so i can't leave. Wake you pump it and dump it and put it in a bottle so hard because there's two of them. There's never enough milk a deficit. Like i couldn't. It's it's a very fine balance sinai icon in short. But you know what. I'm happy to wait so christmas. Feel can't physically exhausted mentally exhausted. I second that the baby's asleep on podcasting every second. So i literally don't have a chance to even go on to endure at the moment so it can wait my.

I mean when did you find out you were having twins at nine weeks pregnant. So i was working in london and i started having a little bit of bleeding and i felt like fucking death like i just felt awful like has obviously been pregnant before this was like another level and so i went to hospital thinking i i keep bleeding.

Why I Love Rome
"Let's start the hour with three guides from rome. Who tell us what they love. Most about their city rome. It's the eternal city to one of the most romantic and popular destinations in the whole world but many visitors met with a harsh reality when they wander rooms. Ancient streets overcrowded sites chaotic. Urban seems unpredictable transit strikes. If you're not prepared. Rome can be a challenge. But many will agree with me that it's all worth it. Bernardo francesca russo and susanna perugini specialize in guiding american tourists around italy and. They've all made rome their home because they love their city. They join us now on travel. With rick steves to share their love of rome and share with us some tips on how we might enjoy it too you know. Francesca susannah bondar. Generate one so rome. I love history. And there's history every where you look. Francesca you're born and raised in rome. What's it like just to go to work. Surrounded by all that history. Sometimes i think about it that i can wait for the bus right by where julius caesar was stabbed to death. So i'm thinking that rome is a place where history goes from printed words on the page of a book to something. That's alive every minute of every day so you can feel it. Something had happened. Two thousand years ago happened right now. And there's layer after layer after layer. I mean there's like an archaeological dig isn't it but it's right before your very eyes. He has over two thousand years of history. Front is every single moment. Wherever you turn all at once pub is living in rome shape your outlook. I would say that most romans take it for granted. I think they gain a sense of how special the city is when they go elsewhere and they always find everything else so new so you become you become aware of how what it means to live with two thousand years of history once you leave it i think if you grow in it and you see coliseum every day when you drive to work in the sense you don't even see it any more than you might make a case that if you live in a land with very little with the shallow history. You don't appreciate history quite as much. i mean. The oldest building in my town is one hundred years old building a new town twenty times that could maybe if you live with things that are two thousand years old and every day i think you forget it and it just becomes something many conversations with my roman friends who say they've never been inside the coliseum where he could for take it for granted. Yeah but once you open their eyes to one thing then they understand and appreciate as well

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.
Remembering the lives lost to coronavirus
"No country in the world has suffered as many coronavirus deaths as the United States. And as we mark the devastating milestone 500,000 people lost to the disease. There's people behind the numbers. I mean, Our mom is behind that number. And it's really sad. Wendy Jensen, remembering her mom, Carol Ray stories of the loss and life echoing around the country, baby See Stevo since Tommy Francesca McCall is a single mother and Birmingham, Alabama, who was raising seven Children of her own this time last year in the fall of the Corona virus, took the lives of her younger sister and her sister's husband, who themselves were the parents of five Children. Guess who's raising all 12 of those kids? Now? Dr Anthony Fauci is saying We've done worse than most any other country, but he wants a new approach. Out rather than looking back and saying, What the heck happened here? Just saying now, let's just go forward and be completely committed as a unified country for what it's worth. Carrie Preston ABC
Airbnb cancels and blocks inauguration week reservations
"Says it will cancel all reservations in the Washington D. C area during the week of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration and reimburse host what they would have made. Airbnb expense. This is an attempt to further prevent prevent further attacks at the Capitol one week after pro Trump supporters stormed the capital building, which resulted in five Yes. Joining us now. Chris Lahane, senior vice president for global policy and communications at Airbnb, So, Chris, you know not only are you canceling reservations. You're doing it at hope, Airbnb his expense and reimbursing them what they would have made if these days had happened, so this is a pretty dramatic move on your part. Who did you consult about this? And how did you come to this decision? Yeah, And I think thanks for having us, you know, a million years. I didn't think we'd be having this type of a conversation. You know, really? We've been consulting with local officials, Mayor's office, federal officials, members of Congress. Obviously, yesterday you had the two governors, governor of Maryland governor of Virginia. Also the mayor of Washington, D. C. All make really clear that they just did not want people traveling to Washington, D. C. We have a decision making framework that we call our stakeholder framework. We just really considered all the issues impacting our stakeholders. And one of those stakeholders are the communities that we're in. It just became really clear to us that the right thing to do here was to the block people traveling from to Washington, given all the guidance, given everything that's going on, given, frankly, the interest of our republic We certainly didn't want to make sure that our hosts who are going to be economically impacted are made whole and that is part of our stakeholder framework. But ultimately, this was pretty simple decision to prioritize. The public health and safety of particularly given the guidance that we were being given yesterday from those various leaders. Since then, the president has been impeached for the second time the first president ever to be impeached twice. You are also canceling reservations on hotel tonight. Haven't heard other hotels saying that they're gonna be canceling reservations. Do you think that they should be doing that? Great question. I'm pretty comfortable speaking about our decision making. Obviously, we'll let others make their decisions. Do believe that all of us? I tried thinking of Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural where, To paraphrase he talked about the fact we're all Democrats, for all Republicans mean that we're all Americans, and I do think we're all of the moment right now, where that really should be Our North star and got his start and that context really prioritizing trusted safety. I do think I'm like, you know something that you and I have talked about historically. This concept of stakeholder capitalism on making decisions that consider all those stakeholders and I do think maybe after some time passes, people will look back on this moment. And after I did some good has really come of it. But It's been interesting to see a number of other businesses on business leaders really standing up and making decisions that are prioritizing interest of the country. I do wonder if this will be one of those moments where People actually saw stakeholder capitalism in action and people actually playing action. Two words. We made the decision based on our application of that stakeholder framework and what we thought was in the best interest of the community. Now how much of the Virginia and Maryland suburbs do your cancelations include? And can you give us any idea how much this will cost Airbnb and whether you're you're potentially gonna make some a similar decisions. Another state capitals. Across the country, given the warnings from the FBI, great great questions. Let me try and take them individually. In terms of the geographic parameters. Horoscope. I'm sure you'll appreciate this. Uh, we are not looking to be able to give this specific. So anyone out there who is Looking to try to evade the systems that we have in place that the block calendars and block travel could take advantage of that. We're certain certainly applying this approach to the Greater D C area that metro area but have been pretty careful about not giving the details. Specifics really in an effort to make sure that people can't evade the The systems that we have in place. It's gonna impact, you know, roughly approximately 5500 reservations and in that area, but we also have signals allow us to be able to change his parameters pretty quickly if we feel like we need need to expand. You know, from a financial perspective, really? That never even came into the conversation. We've been removing violent extremists and you Nazis really dating back. Before Charlottesville in 2017. It's something that we've been doing on an UN going basis, and those conversations just never involved. How much is this gonna cost what the financial impact is going to be even in the case like that? Really was. What's the right thing to do? And I know that may sound trite, but it really was. I remember every conversation with Bryan or strike, Francesca. See, you know what it was? It asked. Let's make sure we're doing everything possible on Dever raised at all. You know what? Let's look at the financial impact was just do the right thing. And then as it regards out their capitals 100% right. Obviously, governments have issued warnings and The other day we announced they seven point plan that sort of helped address how we keep these specific types of folks off the platform. We have flexibility, adaptability toe. Move that around. We're certainly in contact with the different states and the different governments on

It's a fascinating account of the history of bills of exchange in early modern europe. Which were a mechanism for merchants to exchange goods services and money over long distances and it deals specifically with the long standing myth that jews invented them. And this might seem like a fascinating but niche topic. But it really isn't. It provides a door into a wide ranging conversation about economic history and what it teaches us in the biggest terms about the relationship between the nuts and bolts of the economy and the myths that surround often opaque processes and instruments and ultimately about how these myths have staying power that resonates in terms of the public conception about how the world works from the seventeenth century to the two thousand eight financial crisis. And then of course. There's the question of what all of this means when we throw jews into the equation. The fact that jews were associated with financial instruments like bills of exchange is part of a much longer history about the place of jews in european culture anti semitism and anti judaism and the role of myths in.

Looking for Rome; The End of Ice; Earth Day
"It took a decade for Americans to take Rachel Carson seriously. In her book silent Spring She described the dangerous carcinogenic pesticides to the Environment. End To our health. It's bird the. Us government to create the Environmental Protection Agency and banning DT use in North America and much of the world got underway. Today we're experiencing a new form of silent. Spring with the spread of the novel Corona Virus as well as the accelerating effects of climate change on the planet. Maybe these are all signs that Mother Nature is upset with us up mountain climbing journalists Djamil. Cautions us that we're running out of time to get serious about our impact on the natural world? He'll tell us why in just a bit. Let's start today's travel. With Rick. Steves with fresh look at one of the world's most celebrated cities Rome. Francesca Caruso specializes in uncovering the layers of Roman history for visitors. She's with us to point out. What's behind the sites? We see so. We can view Roma's our city to treasure as well. Francesca Buongiorno. Kayak Francesca every day. You take groups around Rome like an evangelist of art appreciation. I've been following you for twenty years this way and it just your fresh now as you were when I first met you as far as your teaching mission. What is your mission as a teacher of travelers in Rome mission to make Rome accessible because I understand that it can be overwhelming. And what do you do with two thousand years of history? What do you do if two thousand years of art? So it's really giving some ideas on how to navigate it how to make sense of. What does it mean? What does it mean to us today? Wonderful classroom well. It's not a bad office to have. Now what are the big challenges? I mean it's it's hot. It's crowded people don't know their history What are the challenges of this? I mean it's becoming more and more crowded yes. The summer's getting very hot. But I think we have to stand that these things don't explain themselves that it's not true that if you stare at a painting or you look at broken columnists going to tell you what it means so we need a little bit of help. We need a few ideas. How do I look at things with the ancient ruins? Look like when they were intact for example so was a few ideas. We can do that. So when you're doing your work. Are there moments when you feel like yes? I've I've really connected and this person has been opened up to the wonder of what I've loved for years. It's a moment the SA- crossing the threshold at some moment. When you see that look in their eyes that they're right there and sometimes I invite them to remember to think of themselves at home packing their suitcases before coming to Rome and ask him think of where you are now the real thing and the real place think about this and as he that they look around themselves they do these moments. I mean now. Travelers can enter the coliseum through. What do you call it? The gladiator entrance on the stern entrance. And you're on the arena on the floor and you can hear the crowds and you can see the wild animals and BSE. Imagine nation is absolutely ignited finding moments though as a teacher. I mean anybody could just walk through some Gaetan look at the Coliseum on the inside it must be nice for you to able to have an entry that makes sense for the story that you're trying to tell. The story is the part I. I don't think you know after twenty years of talking about these things. I think that it's not so much the stones in themselves as was the stones have to say I mean the idea that the stones carry cultures carry stories that but we can think about and we can understand the past but we can also understand ourselves and having a conversation with those stories for you in other words the art can actually be more than just enjoying something fascinating or beautiful it can have meaning can have important the cost the coliseum. I mean the colosseum is bricks. Stones was the colosseum as a place of violence as a place of politics. It's a place where there is ethical moral issue that comes up with his. It mean that these people went to watch death all day long so it becomes a an occasion to reflect on the use of violence and propaganda. That so interesting because a lot of people go. Oh those Romans I mean arena. That's the word is sand right to soak up the blood. Absolute that's why it's called an arena because Covered with sand. So all the bloodshed on the opening celebration of the Coliseum. How many animals were slaughtered? Has Nine thousand or something like that? I always recommend working with perception to also think okay violence. But what if they'd been ancient Roman sitting in the audience and I saw my first lion never having seen a photograph line on knowing what a line looks like a lion pounces out of the floor for the first time. Two thousand years ago without zoos and circuses documentaries would that meant so we can put ourselves in the shoes of people of the past. It creates a different understanding history and culture. We don't need to be quite so judgmental and we also have to remember. What are the top selling movies for us? You know. They're the shoot? 'em Up the Schwarzenegger movies on this kind of stuff. The the wrestling the car racing everybody waiting for a crash. I mean there's a lot of consistency between twenty first century and two thousand years ago might challenge as a tour guide. And I would imagine you're too is helping people see things in that context. I mean today we go to Roman. It's a modern city sitting on the ruins of a city that used to have a million people. There were a million people in Rome two thousand years ago. How do we envision that? How do we appreciate pass key? But the imagination needs to be informed so if I say that Roma's the first city in the West that reach the population of a million that an antiquity was the most populated city on the planet. And there will never be a million people in a European city again after Roman to London in the eighteen hundreds there you can start thinking that and then you start saying well. What did it mean to provide clean water food housing to over a million people two thousand years ago with did it look like and then you're there all of a sudden you're there and you're thinking like them and you don't bring your baggage of perceptions of moral codes and ethics but you're thinking like a Roman and then that's the transformative aspect of travel that you can be in the shoes of another person of another time might challenge and I just love? This is to not look at it from yeah. I've been there done that. I've seen it on TV. I saw that movie. You know from the twenty. Oh we've got taller buildings or whatever put yourself in the context and then you go. Wow they had a sewer system for a million people. They brought in water for a million people. They cooked bread for a million people there. Rick it happens if you're on the other side of the world and you didn't know book it's one thing if you're in place and you can imagine you can think you can reflect. You can feel are things that can happen if you're that to not happen. Otherwise is doors open as he's Windows. That opens a comprehension. Remember we talked about once fell to The Catholic pilgrim to walk into Saint Peter's for the first time for one hundred years ago. It's that idea of putting ourselves in the eyes in the shoes of travelers on the past
Saint Laurent’s is ditching the traditional Fashion Month Calendar
"Get down system news breaking news this week. I was pretty at. He can aback by the SUNOL announcement. Picking them back in a good way. Ya was although I guess in the last episode we'd been wondering whether big changes were actually going to end up happening so I guess there's your proof that's your answer so for anyone who doesn't know son. A Hall has decided to drop out of Paris fashion week and set its own pace for showing collections direction of the year. And it's going to pivot to adapt to the corona virus crisis and has said they told. Ww W D Saddam will said in a press. Release wd conscious of the current circumstances and it's waves of radical change. Santa has decided to take control of its pace and reshape. Its schedule creates Dr Anthony. Vaccarello said the violent impacted covered nineteen outbreak. Which has forced the closure of most of Santa Stores meant business as usual was not an option chief executive officer Francesca Valentini. Hinted that the brand famed for its spectacular outdoor women's catwalk shows set against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower in Paris could still age a physical show at some point this year. But his favorite formats. They're more intimate and closely aligned. The final customer room. What do you think that means? It's such big news. I think that a house as respected and that does such exceptional job also needed such an exceptional job for its Shows has decided to to step down. Because that's a really really positive meaning that others will feel other smaller. Brands will feel like they can do the same without sounding like their brands in an unhealthy state. Because I feel like a lot of people will be worried about the way to investors and stuff at the same time as So that's also something to take into consideration when you're canceling big show and some of the big names of doing it gives a lot more room for others. I mean the rose also says that that's what they're going to be doing next season and I think this is a really positive outcome. I do that like brands. Moving away from the long lamented fares suck in place flashing. Schedules is a good thing. There is part of me. Worries that with brands. Big Sahel if they're off schedule but still in Paris are still gonNA maybe in completely off the mark with this that people are still gonna fly to Paris from other places to see that. But they're saying they're not showing. Well are they saying they're not showing? Yeah they said they're not doing a show could still stage a physical show at some point this year. Yeah at some point means one show instead of like the fashion week schedule. Which basically these three shows. Because that's two women or four shows to women's and men's which is from going from four to one is a big step. It's a big step back totally and I'm totally in agreement with that but I just worry that everything is going to become cruise collection competition e where big brands compete to have a more extravagant location or timing or whatever and then we're all just going to have to be on airplanes all the time in random directions and if that's what's going to happen? I would just rather we stick to the fashion week schedule because at least you just take one flight and then you go to Paris and you see the shows you know. That's the devil's advocate but bear in. Mind that that's if international flights have resumed. Which for the time being. It isn't the case and bronze will not have healthy budget. They used to fly people around on a whim as much as they used to. And I feel that for example a brand like Santa Hall would make sense to host an event of some kind in the form of a show. Something else every year in Paris. Because that's whether the house is located and you do have to find a way to promote and showcase what the designers creating certainly certainly so there is you have to be able to allow for some kind of formats. I think it's positive to see that it's going to be less than than it was and I really liked the idea of rethinking a system. That was so wrong but yeah I agree with you until we see what the outcome is. Exactly we can't really speculate county yet. No I assume you know what it occurs to me that some of our listeners might not beyond the fashion week circuit. I feel like I'd love you to go into a little bed and you're really up -cluded on the stuff as well. What about the fashion calendar is has been so wrong for so many years but especially in recent years? Can you speak to you kind of just touched on it? I think the competition for each brand to do bigger and better viral. Basically shows has become completely out of hand plus the fact that there are an increasing number of brands increasing number of people wanting to attend shows. Because it's good for positioning or like people just want to be seen their raw than the because they're actually you know helping promote the show itself and I also feel that we talked about this before. It's always fashion week somewhere and whereas they used to be only one week for each city it's now becomes so long and there's men's could chew and crews and then all the minor fashion weeks like Copenhagen and button and all the others that I can't think of the top of my head right now but I know there are loads of them. Do we really need a show format in an era which is increasingly digital. And when actually sitting front row to show would only be important if that show. It really is a proper added value to the brand. I think partly because of how exhausting has become for everybody and by everybody. I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about people who really work super hot during that time. So the bias. The brands you work super hard juryman time. Yeah at the end of the day. I'm just that to report I'm not Like I feel like there's a lot of pressure during those those busy busy busy times and having so many shows back to back over a period of a month then Rick 'cause two three times in Aghia and where every single time you have to travel to a different city and attend just absolutely absurd amount of events and shows parties all in the name of promoting a brown and it just turns into a ridiculous exercise which is actually quite just quite cringe and especially after everything. We've gone through in last in the last few weeks. I think it would be quite distasteful to return to

"francesca" Discussed on What Book Hooked You?
"This is what book cooked you. I'm Shelley and thanks for listening on this week's episode I talked to the Franchesca whose latest book now entering comes out on October the first and we talk about what went into this book we also talk a little bit about her previous book to this one and her monsters role that drawing plays in in her life so listening so Francesca what book hooked you so so I think actually to their woods it was it was Harry Potter and the prisoner of asked Ban and then it was Robin McKinley hero in the sword and they both kind of did it around the same time. which was I think I was in third grade and Harry Potter got me in that way of like that was what told me that I could right so I was reading that book I got to the end of that book and spoiler for anybody? Who's never read it? What's wrong with you? At the end of that book. There's so many twists all in a row and it just blew my mind and I thought I can write like people a person wrote a wrote this book like a real person wrote this. I can write something like this. S. Two and so Harry Potter was kind of what got me started writing and then the hero and the crown is kind of what it was a book that just made me realize how deeply I could love books and to this day I still love that one. I read it like every couple the years in it it holds up so well and so I would imagine just based on what you just said that you grew up reading and really love books correct yes and at first I didn't. I didn't love reaping at first and I didn't in love books. my mom was the one that really wanted us to get into reading and so she would take us to the library we would do the summer reading program. and I just remember her having to take out books term because there was nothing that looked enticing and so like I didn't. I didn't enjoy reading until I think until she got me the secondary power book. I hadn't read the first one I didn't know what it was and she ordered me the second one out of the Scholastic Catalog Block and I read that book and I was like Oh wait this is fun I enjoy this and so from then on then I really started loving reading and and started looking in for more types of books and so I'm always curious then as you sort of grew up preteen teenage years was reading as important. Did you find as much joy sometimes during those teenage years it becomes comes a lot harder. 'cause you know social life and school becomes increased as far as taking up the amount of time. So what was your reading life like. I think I actually think a lot of the reading I did when I was a preteen and a teenager was just Harry Potter which is reread Harry Potter over and over again I've read twilight and I remember liking twilight until it wasn't cool to like twilight my life any more and then I hated twilight and now you know that's a whole that's a whole saga in itself but not make upon the fact that China is saga. It was mostly Harry Potter twilight for a little while I remember reading the Hunger Games in high school because I was at that point in my teenage years where I did a lot of things out spite and the hunger Games was like the big thing at the time and everybody was like Oh the third books coming out you got it so awesome and I was like yeah whatever it can't be that good and then I read the first book and like I ice. I read like two chapters of it and I was like Oh. This is really good. I really like this what happened and then I loved it. After that and I think through and through those years if I was reading something other than Harry Potter it was probably like initially spite read and then I ended up liking again and then where does writing then come into play for you so I I have been writing since I think probably since I was eight years old that was that was around when I got that first Harry Potter Book and I realized that like you know real people all right books I can do this. This is the thing and so I had always liked making stories and before for that I had drawn things because I've been drawings since I'd hold pencil can go I can right so I started writing and with the reading a lot of how I learned how to write was from Harry Potter obviously and then that spite reading came in because I think it was that in that way teenage like envy of just like why why why are these people doing well like I could do well to oh I should be famous so that was why spite read them and then I was like Oh wait. No this is much better than than what I'm writing. This is very good now. I see why this this is published so that's that's kind of how it figured in so so part of my writing when I was a teenager was I love doing this. I want to do this forever forever. I WANNA get better at it and part of it was I just want to be amazing and the best at everything and I'm going to show everybody what I can do and I think that's the slither in an me coming out real hard so what then were those kind of first attempts to to write. What types of stories were you creating? I was so another thing I really liked growing up with anime and so the stories a lot of the stories came up with when I was really little we're like just the most bonkers anime nonsense you can thank of and I mean pieces of him still exist so like in my second book allies on her monsters allies draws the web comic called monstrous and a question. I get asked a lot is how did you come up with monstrous see like how did you. How did you know that allies web? The comic was going to be how did you create old just for her and I was like Oh. I didn't create it for her. I've been writing that story since I was eight years old and the original idea for that that came from my best friend and I were like eight or nine years old and we were playing grand theft auto by city which we were probably too young to be playing and we would put cheat code thin and just get tanked and drive around and blow things up and and we call ourselves the rampage twins because we were super cool and my that like early idea was I'm going to write a story about these two characters called rampage twins who each have like different superpowers or whatever but it's going to be set in like this fantasy world and they're gonNA WANNA be creatures and airships and all this cool stuff and over the years a lot of that just got thrown out completely or you know like this Acilia. Let's get rid of that with brain missing and it just not molded and reshaped into monstrous e- which is now I mean I've had around four were almost almost twenty years. How long are and when I wrote Elisa it it was like okay? She's a creator of something and I need to give her something that she really really cares about will lead to I care about the most monstrous you see. I just gave that to her because then that would make her feelings real and so you you've been creating monster see for like you said twenty years now when were you first kind of throwing ended up on the Internet are really kind of sharing your stories on a regular uglier basis with people and maybe we're talking about Mantra sear me. We're just talking about your writing in general so I I think I mean the earliest ooh man I think one point I might have put like a chapter two of one the way earlier drafts of monster see on fiction press or something like that never put a whole lot of enough there. I did share it with my friends like in school. I carry around this one of those gigantic three inch binders and I was just print out the book which makes me cringe so hard now. Oh God the trees. How many trees did I kill but I printed the book? Put it in this binder in Iran passed around my friends and they would all read it so they've read like a red light to drafts of monstrous e I think and they read probably two or three drafts of what is now made you up because made you up. I kind of wrote monster see in May drew up at the same time like those are the two stories that I developed from the time I was like eight and up through college and when was it kind of one of the idea kind of strike you beyond just kind of creating something as an outlet crane to show your friends. When was it like this is something that I'm going to take serious to the point where I'm intending to publish this so I was fifteen? I remember exactly it's like there was eight years. Old In fifteen was a freshman in high school and I don't remember it might have been like a twilight thing that started off or maybe another Harry Potter thing but I had the the second revelation which was you don't have to be famous to get a book published and I realized that I didn't know how you you did that and I realized that you know if I'm going to be this upset at other people's stories. You know you can talk. All you want in some point. If you're going to be upset about it you gotta try to get yourself your own stuff published so I at that point I went on Google all Google it. How do you get about book published? I just remember it being like really overwhelming at first and I remember everybody like like when I told her when I told my parents like a okay you can do that but just you know. It's really hard to get a book published. You know you probably going to get rejected a lot. I just remember everybody saying that to me like just trying to like pad the the the eventual disappointment and like no no I get it I get it. I'm going to get rejected. I didn't really get it. I don't think anybody gets it until you're like. They're getting rejected but that was the I just remember. That has is fifteen. I decided I wanted to get published in. Everybody's in the reaction. Was Oh sure infants what you WANNA do we'll support you and what when you first start out fifteen. What were you going to be the author of what type of author you're going to be did you think at that point Sh- like through my teenage years I had the worst delusions of grandeur? I thought like my some of my favorite things to do is just like put my headphones on and just like sit outside just think about all the things that could possibly usually that's really nice for brainstorming books not so helpful. It's really good for like personal. you know envisioning your own personal future. I'm getting you're getting your ego pumped up but now so great when it comes to reality so when I was a teenager I was like I want to be you. You.

Elections loom in the DRC
"Will improve things I'm joined finally by Francesca Bomboko, executive director of Bessie specialists in political polling in the Democratic Republic of Congo Francesca. Thank you for joining us. First of all, what are the people running for president of Congo hoping to become president of it's a very large often, obviously dysfunctional country. How much of the Congo can any president actually hope to meaningfully govern. I mean, the the they can actually hope to govern the entire country. And I say that these phone my feel experience even though it's a huge country. Like you said, but like the last survey that we did we actually went into twenty six provinces of Congo more than four hundred and sixty nine sites and each time. There was somebody representing the state at that level. Even though most of them were not pay us oppose. But there were there, and we had to present a respect and we had to decline or entity and see what we're doing. So what do you think that the administrative framework of DRC is far more complex and fumble efficient that is normally thought of that at the very least is encouraging. But when we think of the potential next president of Congo in the decision that voters will make before they choose one. Does it strike you that this has been? About the identity and the persona and the personality of the candidates or of the policies. They're actually pursuing. Mean the vote is definitely a kink. India see, we can say that the food is ethnic. But also at the same time, I think that, you know, the general feeling general mood that we perceive in a survey. You know, is that most people are fed up with the current system. They just want to change. So regardless of which provinces that come from regardless of the ethnical background. They just want to change. And this is something that e- we see throughout the ages the sex of the person that we interview. So these are overall, you know, you're yearning for change that is quite strong and powerful India at the moment. Plus the fact that some of the candidates kind of excluded to participate to the elections. Some of the region I would say most of the region fund absolves, nobody coming from the ethnic background. So they have to to vote for somebody at not necessarily for somebody that belongs to the tribe belongs today overall ethnic identity, so as you've seen this election. What does it strike? You have been the actual issues have been the contests of policy which have have got voters interested, regardless of the fact that most everybody wants to change, and what do you think that I've seen it before? And this is something that come across what drastically in all the seven a result. But when we think that which is the most important challenges that the government will have to face after the elections. I mean, the number one issue is the economy definitely for thirty three percent to seven percent of the people that we of the respondent and. Strangely enough. The second issue is Justice and the third is security, and we would have thought, you know, before doing the survey the security will come. I I think it's overall the economy, as you know, poverty is well, you know, more than seventy percent of the relations are on the below the one dollar poverty line. And the economy's the number one issue definitely looking at the election itself. There has been a lot of nervousness certainly abroad. And I I know in Congo itself about whether this election will be free and fair and above all peaceful. How optimistic are you on the front not that much over overwhelming majority of the populations that we survey in October sixty six percent to be exact think that it's not going to be credible. It's not going to be transparent, and it's not going to be fair. So that's a lot of Senate and has been at searched consistently since the past two years. So this. Very high distrust of the electoral commissions, nonetheless, you know, when we ask them. Do you still a us didn't want to vote? Yes. More than any nine percent of the people wants to vote and winning to go out and vote. So this seems to be quite a contradiction over there. But that's understandable in the actual context because they do really feel that election will be the only to bring about change. And when asked them should we postpone the elections to have a more credible process. More transparence over only majority of the population says now, they don't want
NBA power rankings - How LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard change everything
"Pennzoil, performance line today and I I'm not sure exactly what it's gonna take especially when you think about the, fact that as we said earlier they asked over forty of our reporters insiders NBA minds to do a power ranking on the, upcoming season and the.
