One Page At A Time, Jess Wade Is Changing Wikipedia
"So today. We're speaking with just weighed in experimental. Physicists at college. London and every night for the past three years just has written a wikipedia entry about a woman or poc scientists. And if this sounds like a big commitment that's because it is. But what motivates. Just keep with. It is the possibility of using wikipedia to combat the bias. In science. We see it in who gets through peer review. We see it in who gets big papers. Cited we see who gets big grants. We see it and who wins awards. And that means that the people that we celebrate and champion incredibly homogeneous and when wikipedia launched the internet was a very small space and it was very dominated by particular types of people. This kind of you know. Tech bro attitude that we still see in silicon valley and places like that majority white majority western a lot from north america some from western europe and those were the first people to start using it engaging in contributing to wikipedia backed according to a twenty twenty study. Eighty seven percents of wikipedia. Contributors are men with media includes wikipedia wick wicky quote a bunch of other platforms and for just this bias in. Authorship creates a bias in who gets a biography so this huge systematic bias against women against people of color against people from the global south against people who are from any kind of particular marginalized group. So it's kind of two things when we have a very diverse editorship and to the things they writes about a not very diverse and this is obviously impacted by the way that science celebrates people and who took about who we define as notable. Right right just to confirm by. Now you've written what nine hundred articles for the site. Oh no no. How many i've written i've written one thousand two hundred one thousand two hundred whatever so sub usually get a bit excited so obviously that's not three hundred sixty five times three so sometimes i get a little carried away but in general i try and stick to one a day sometimes. Yeah yeah. I mean. I've been going for three. Yes so i've done a pretty good job that in those i. We thought a lot about how to ask you this question. Because twelve hundred articles is an extraordinary accomplishment as far as contributing to this encyclopedia. And so the question we're going to go with is if you could build a quarantine bubble with some of the people that you've written about living or deceased who would you include and why should question so so for sure. I'd have to have some of the people developing vaccines enough air. The person who created the oxford vaccine which is is the vaccine this just been approved for use in the uk. A viral vector vaccine is a phenomenal professor. Sara gilbert sara gilbert has had this kind of fascinating rich directory working on the development of a whole bunch of different vaccines that can walk in different corona viruses and kiss kubat. I don't know if you've come across any of your reporting. She's she's a young african american women who is at the national institute of health and had walked back scenes for for sars and mers. So has this really great legacy but also alongside. I kind of scientific research. An extraordinary publication list works to support people from undeserved communities and walks to really amplify the voices of scientists who too often overlooked but also to support young people and getting into an ethic about science. So that people at different ends of that curric- his kizzie is still very young. Where saratoga established professor but both of them have this kind of extraordinary pathway to really ultimately creating the thing. That's going to save the entire world so suddenly. If i if i had according to about they would be in it. I think that. I mean how many people might out in my quarantine babo because i could keep going. There's no official guidance but the often cited wisdom is less than ten. I'm so primed and ready to tell you stories about everyone. I'm so excited about them. So mainly because i have been. She's someone who i wrote about right at the beginning of my wikipedia. A mathematician who gladys west. She was born in virginia in the thousand nine hundred and she went to college. She went to a historically black college and university to study maths. She goes off in becomes the teach She then eventually what the us government. Wes she did the early computations and calculations for gps so for all of the technologies that almost everything that we do day to day relies on. Now you know you get in your car keys your phone. You try and navigate took particular location. You use the technology that gladys west created. And when i made gladys west page in two thousand eighteen is really hard to find. Information about. Her book is what for the us government so lots of things are adopted. A couple of months. After i put the page live so after i'd finished writing it and put it onto wikipedia. She was selected by the bbc is one of the top one hundred women so she went into the kind of top one hundred women in the world for any intentional creation. Contribution ebba and when you're on a web page like fat when you're on a page so much traffic and insight people hop over to the wikipedia page really quickly so you could just see the numbers of page views of of the wikipedia. Page going up and up and that meant that more and more people contributed to it so grew story grew. How did that make you feel. I just loved it. I was reflecting on this a lot with with my parents lockdown wife. I kept going live. I kept doing this. And i find nothing more rewarding honestly than seeing other people get recognized then champion for what they've done so absolutely love to have quarantine bubble that so many things that i want us. Yeah and you're collecting. I suppose historical information across different websites and books to write these biographies. Has it ever feel like time travel. Yeah completely does feel like time travel. It's it's so it's so interesting. The things that i find kind of thrilling and exciting now feels such a kind of privilege in a rush to be able to get access to all of the resources that we can do. Now you know online libraries. Nine archives sites archived magazines scientific journals extraordinary places that that turn to for this and there are times when you just feel like fantastic achievement. So so if you see in a lot of the world's when women get married they take their partner's name so sometimes it's quite difficult to find out things about their lives if they got married and all of their publications in this new name. And when you find that one link that one connection that tells you that maiden name and then you can go back and find their phd thesis or who was there examining all this extra level of information. So when i get to that. I'm like jump off the sofer like this is great and say yeah. It's completely like a portal into another world. Right i mean. I've chills just listening to you. Talk about this kind of forensic reconstruction of people's lives and who they were outside of who. They married or other kinds of societal markers of that. Yeah a big part of it. I think a big part of my efforts wikipedia. Who i've met the people that we've trained editor phones is to not just make pages about women no make pages about people of color but to make them as good as the comparable page would-be about a white man. Yeah yeah you've been amazing way of connecting all these dots. I really appreciate hearing that I wanna ask you one one last thing. Which is i know that in a lot of ways just talking to you. It sounds like this project is part of such a bigger desire to see science really include nbc driven by all kinds of people. And what do you think it will really take to bring more women and poc's into science so that they stay. Oh such a good question and such a huge one. I mean they're very preliminary simple things that low hanging fruit. If you will know why we don't already have in place you know proper care and support for people who have caring responsibilities so whether that's you know elderly parents or sick parents or especially now in the pandemic who seeing the importance of the childcare and how that skin influence women scientific careers if they're having to work from home but i think more than that we need to really look a scientific institutions and ask really critical questions about why people are leaving. Why do we see. So few black professes. Why do we see so few women in position of leadership. Why do lgbt he. Plus scientists not feel comfortable being out when they're in the scientific workplace and then really put money to and take action to address those individual needs. But i think from a kind of how you get more diverse people into science. I really honestly think the answer is improving our education systems and really support our teachers better. Pay them as well as we pay are bankers so that they stay and so that they create kind of inspiring science lessons. Then go out and got this next generation to come in who keep pushing for this change that we want

How Does the Larynx Work?
"Brain stuff. Learn boban hair. The larynx may not get the same amount of attention as the heart or lungs. But it's still an important internal oregon nestled in the next of people and other animals. The larynx helps allow for noisemaking and speech and is located below the epa gladys which is the leaf shaped flap that prevents choking by keeping food and drink out of the lungs. Part of the leering structure includes the voice box also sometimes referred to as the vocal chords. It's what makes up the bump that you can see in feel in the middle of your neck scientifically known as the laryngeal prominence but more commonly called the adam's apple a women have one to just often at less pronounced during childhood. The voice boxes of boys and girls are about the same size but when most boys hit their tween and teen years their vocal chords hit a growth spurt. This growth causes their voices to crack and eventually results in a deeper and more resonant town. So let's look at how the voice box or vocal cords work first off. Neither moniker is really accurate. The vocal chords are actually two bands of flexible smooth muscle tissue that are located in the larynx and these muscles vibrate as air moves through them on. Its way to or from the lungs. They're more properly called folds. Instead of chords we spoke by email with eric guna. Dd he explained during sound production. The vocal folds close together and start vibrating as air is expelled from the lungs and passes between them and into your mouth which helps to make the sounds. We hear when we're listening to people talk. So the lyrics is made up of a cartilage skeleton that contains the vocal folds covered by mucous lining. The folds are extremely adept at changing shape position and tension so the voice can make a range of sounds at a variety of levels if the lyrics becomes inflamed because of illness or injury the vocal chords can swell and caused laryngitis. Which is characterized by a horse gravelly sounding voice or the loss of one's voice altogether we also spoke by email. Taylor graber md. He said if they're swelling to a vocal chord from overuse cancers are trauma. The tone function produced by the vocal cord becomes altered. The sounds can also change by injury to the muscles or to the nerves that enervate or give sensation to vocal chords. However there are several sounds that we can produce out electric's even speech via whispering. When you whisper the vocal chords can stay slack and not vibrate but mrs known as an open throat whisper and it allows people who are mute. Make sound it's also a helpful technique for people who are arresting their voices such as singers or those with a sore throat. However most people don't use passive technique when they whisper instead they strain to produce a sound and this can be just as harmful to the vocal chords shouting but hey if humans and other animals all have a layerings then why is speaking uniquely human ability. Our brain formation has something to do with it but people have an especially complex system comprising the larynx which produces sound and a flexible mouth tongue and lips. That in combination allows us to generate. The precise sounds that language requires when we talk air moves from the lungs through the larynx and that sound shaped by the extreme fine motor control found in the throat. Mouth tongue. and let's we also have a bone called the hyde and this is a u. Shaped bone situated at the front broke above the larynx. According to graber he said it forms the attachment multiple muscles in the neck. A which aid tongue movement end swallowing. What's really unusual about this. Larynx related bone is that it has the distinction of being the only bone in the human body. That's free floating which means it isn't connected to any other bone instead it supported by connective tissue. The is only found in humans and the end atolls and is believed to be the foundation of our ability to speak. There are about sixty thousand people in the united states who have had their larynx removed. But only a few who've had a larynx transplant. a few people qualify. And if they do. The surgery is complex takes about eighteen hours and is hampered by shortage of larynx available to transplant. However new initiatives including lab grown in three d. printed larynx have the potential to help people recover their own voices again.
Fire devastates world's largest sand island
"Gladys boo knows firsthand. the devastation climate change is already visiting on the world. The twenty five year old has vivid memories of kale island a tiny islet in the solomon islands archipelago where she used to swim and barbecue on the white sand beaches. It's also where her grandparents used to live decades back but kale island no longer exists. It was declared lost in two thousand sixteen after it fully submerged beneath the water a victim of rising sea levels. She worries more of her home. In the south pacific could share the same fate if global temperatures continue to rise at the same pace and just decades. My country's map has changed drastically. She says boo and others who have personally experienced the worst effects of climate change took center stage at a two week. Summit for youth climate activists. The virtual event was organized out of frustration at the postponement of the twenty twenty united nations climate. Change conference also called cop. Twenty six meeting between nations called mock cop twenty six. The summit was attended by more than three hundred fifty delegates from one hundred eighteen countries and included speeches from activists and stakeholders from around the world including the uk government minister in charge of the original cop twenty six in a year dominated by pandemic related disruptions. The mockup to six may be one of the largest international meetings focused on climate change. Even if it lacked official status but another goal of the event was to elevate the voices of those most affected by climate. Change it's a conscious decision. Based on consensus among youth activists that people in the developing world and other marginalized voters are not being represented in the climate movement which has largely focused on activists from developed nations. Be a greta tune. Berg's fridays for future or extinction rebellion which was established in the uk. The climate movement has been often inaccessible and is generally dominated by middle class. White people in the global north says a mercedes rodriguez richer to an activist from the uk student climate network. We can't stand up to this challenge without listening to the people whose voices matter the most in an attempt to be more inclusive. The virtual conference says granted more delegates. To what organizers call most affected people in areas or mapa including the philippines and bangladesh these countries and others were granted five delegates as opposed to three from most developed nations. Giving them more speaking time. More than seventy percent of the delegates represented at the summit or from developing countries. Having more delegates also gave these countries more representation and say in the wording of the final statement from mockup twenty six many behind. Mock cop twenty six. See this as a first step toward changing the emphasis of the youth climate movement. Several studies have shown that a warming planet will disproportionately affect developing countries more than developed nations however mainstream climate movements of faced criticism for not being inclusive of the most vulnerable nations earlier. This year. vanessa. Nakata a ugandan. Climate activist was cropped out of a photo in which she posed with four activists from europe including gratitude berg. It felt like i had been robbed in my space. Nicotine told time in july if climate justice does not involve the most affected communities than it is not justice at all. The photo was later replaced by the new agency that published it when we include everyone. You realize how a lot of the problems are. Common across countries says mitzi thanh a twenty two year old activists from the philippines who has been volunteering at the summit and is one of the speakers representing her country. Thanh has lived through extreme weather events in her native manila which has witnessed progressively more powerful typhoons with each passing year. She says activists like her who have seen the life altering damage. Climate change is already inflicting can go beyond being just sad stories and statistics and take an active role in creating a global solution. There's evidence this approach might result in more effective action to a twenty nineteen report by the united nations development programme found that vulnerable developing countries are leading the world by enacting ambitious pledges on emissions and climate resilience so the narrative. Necessarily isn't we are drowning. We need help says samira sarala a climate change policy expert at the united nations development programme. But rather look how we have seen the consequences and taken the destiny into our own hands. Abu the activist from the solomon islands feels that amplifying stories like hers will help people understand that the climate crisis is already a reality for people in many parts of the world when people who don't believe in climate change. Listen to our stories. They will hopefully empathize and engage she says.

Gladys graduated as valedictorian in nineteen forty eight scholarship in hand at virginia state gladys initially struggled to decide what she wanted to study. Before choosing to major in mathematics she also joined the alpha kappa alpha sorority where she thrived socially after graduating with her bachelor's degree in mathematics gladys took a job teaching at a school in waverly virginia.

Latest ship advice on the facts that we know today can you just explain for us within the Liberal Party where she kind of sits and how the factional balancing the potty might play out if you know if her leadership does become come onto question in the next couple of days? So, let us perfectly and a motorist and the mortar it is the dominant faction he eat. Most places now she does enjoy the support of the Liberal Party, but there are some enemies and this is politics. Everybody has enemies but especially, within the rice, they do have concerns about gladys, Berridge declines, and they have been waiting for a moment like this and we have seen we've certain issues over the past few years that that it doesn't take much for. Them to start to become a few whispers and a bit of a pile. Now, we had a very contentious abortion legislation in New South Wales last year, and that was a threat to her leadership. We had an issue early on in the pandemic around the re princess and there were a private chat then around Gladys virgenes leadership so it doesn't take much for. Just a slot mistakes to start. Chipping away and the talks to stop privately within the POTTY. Now, this is different because very public and at ease a very be. Very. Obvious. issue. That gladys vertically has has brought on herself and the.

"And where the her party would back and it appears that she does have the support of the party at say there is nobody actively trying to roll her and publicly at least her. Ministers have very senior ministers have come out very much and rallied around her and have showed this important. She's done nothing wrong. She's not kind of resolved she is. Standing, there was no evidence whatsoever this daryl. Maguire. Any benefit from that relationship? Yes there are you one in particular sin voices as you would expect but it all really hinges and the future of Gladys Virgenes ladyship really hinges on evidence that will come out Daryl Maguire essentially says at the Icici today expected she will give evidence again tomorrow as well. WH- what he'll say. Now, we want to get into what may happen if if there are more bombshells coming, from Daryl, Maguire at his appearances. But before we do that, let's talk a little for people outside new South Wales about what kind of person Gladys Berrouadji cleon ease what's her public reputation What what sort of figure is she? Yeah I guess as well before this week. Yeah. Let us virgin she's such a strike choosy think that she's just so by the book almost boring that hardworking very much head down that she's married to the job that she squeaky clean she's almost sank gladys. And how she approaches. Her work at that she so dedicated. It's almost like she. She's the head girl I at school essentially that she you know she always says the right things judy, she's dedicated. You know she's not the funnest person to hang out with. At the party but she is a good solid safe pair of hands and and I think her record in parliament as well in terms of how she's been in premiere especially. In terms of how she's managed the Bush five and the pen dynamic has has also backed up that reputation as well. So she she is popular and with a you lock her personally or not. I think there is a sense in new? South Wales that she sees a solid layup what happens to that reputation given the. Revelations this week it does that have to be rejigged nowadays people reappraising Gladys Birgit cleaned in light of what we've learned. Well, really you can go one of two ways. Yes it is cheek in her armor and at ease in terms of a question of judgment you know she she insists that she has done nothing wrong. But she she said what she's guilty is making a bad choice in her personal life, which is what a lot of people can identify with. Lots of people have made bad choices indicted bad guys all not great women for them as well. So it's it's whether the even humanize her and You know she is A. Lack, the of us, but it could be damaging to the fact that you know what? Yes. People make bad decisions but not everybody is the premier, and if you want to be the premia, then then you have to make certain decisions and be seen to be making good judgement calls and there is an issue in terms of the timing of the relationship is. Now, these relationships added before she was the premia but Darragh Maguire was forced to resign from parliament in two thousand eighteen and he was under a corruption cloud. Now, Glassberg revealed to the SEC that she stayed in that relationship post twenty, thousand eighteen for another two years and she didn't end it. She only ended it when she knew that she would have to go before the current icy icy hearing through. Win. Did you say student Viz relationship with Mr Mogollon well, obviously a few months ago when I was asked to support base inquiry, it became apparent to me that I should have absolutely not context that's where it becomes a bit of a sticky issue and in terms of looking at her judgment widened, she ended in two thousand eighteen when she was the premium. And the New South Wales opposition leader Jodi McKay is having trouble imagining an innocent answer to that question until a month ago Gladys Berridge clan was still in contact with Daryl Maguire. Daryl Maguire who is disgraced by CAC, and he's a person of interest by. Now. That just shows a recklessness from the leader of this state. What it shows is poor judgment from the later of this state. How on Earth Did she think it was okay to still being contact with a disgraced m pay and still be in a relationship with them? Okay. So Gladys Julian is under an unholy amount of pressure and it's not the first time. In fact, it's not even the first time in the past four weeks because this time last month's gladys buried instead down a revolt from the National Party in an incident that has regrettably since become known as Koala guys. And according to the Daily Telegraph this morning, this has been going on behind closed doors for the past six months, and it's now coming out into the open whatsoever is changes made to the Koala Habitat Protection state environment planning policies along police toddle. This was a sash within the coalition partnership between the Liberals and the nationals and the nationals had serious concerns about elements of this new Koala policy, which is essentially a planning policy and it was around environmental protections, own landholders, properties, effected farmers, and addicted development on farms this. New Policy now, the nationals were extremely concerned about the so much so that they threatened to effectively move themselves to the Cross branch and and blow up the coalition agreement. Now got a spare Gigli and showed an amazing amount of car. She stayed down the leader of the nationals, Joan barone Lara, and the Party and simple. If you're going to do that, then I'm GonNa go to Government House and swearing and you ministry, and she really won the day there and they have scenes negotiated that policy but that was an amazing. Show from Gladys Berkeley and she's known for being much more collegiate and really trying to bring people along with her and he doesn't like confrontation. She's known that she doesn't like confrontation like then cheese quite risk averse especially, not knowing how things will play out but it showed as will that perhaps that she was an emboldened later and that she had a lot of political capital and she knew it just because of how well she has handled the bushfires and the pandemic. So that political capital now and that strength of leadership may be tarnished slightly and she may eight net up and she may not be.
David Lammy On Why Climate justice can't happen without racial justice
"I've got to stop by admitting that in many. Me Giving a talk about how climate action can help black communities is surprising. I grew up whole black with a single mother in Psalm. One of the most deprived areas in London in the nineteen seventies and s climate change was the last thing on my mind. Representing Tottenham. Its member of parliament for the past twenty years my focus has been on trying to reduce the deprivation I grew up around in the past the climate crisis never featured at the forefront of my politics because it was never one of the most immediate. Constituents facing or at least it didn't feel like it. Rising sea levels feel unimportant when your bank balance is falling. Global, warming is not your concern when you can't pay the heating bills and you're not thinking about pollution when you're being stopped by the police and so perhaps this is why as the black lives matter movement roared across the world that's been so dimension saving black lives from the climate emergency. The too long those of us who cared about racial justice treated environmental justice is that was elitist and at the same time, the leaders who did focus on climate change we usually white and rarely bothered to enlist the support of black voices in their work. Even Progressive Allies sometimes took votes to granted and assume that all community didn't care or wouldn't understand the truth is the opposite is true. Black people breathe in the most toxic air relative to the General Population We are more likely to suffer from respiratory diseases like asthma. And it is people of color who are more likely to suffer in the climate crisis. This is no coincidence. The cheapest housing tends to be next to the busiest roads and many of the lowest paid jobs are the most pollutant industries. People of color consistent deny the bottom of the housing educational and Employment Ladders. This story connects black communities across the world from London to lay goes to La black-americans are exposed to fifty six percent more pollution than they course white Americans breed seventeen percent less air pollution, the May produce. It gives a whole new meaning to the black lives matter slogan I breath we all right. We know the name of George Floyd who was murdered by the police, but we should also know the name of eloquently Deborah. Ella a nine year old mixed race girl from southeast London was killed by fatal asthma attack evidence suggested was caused partly by the unknow fool levels of air pollution near her home. And it's not only urban areas where black lives are disproportionately under threat from climate change. My parents had country of Guyana is one of the most vulnerable countries on earth to the effects of climate. Change. So far, gladys contributed relatively little to the climate emergency, but it's one of the country's facing the most serious threats from it. While the annual carbon dioxide emissions beheaded the United States is a staggering sixteen point. Five metric tons in Guyana is just two point six, it is a patton repeated. The Globe those countries that have contributed least the climate breakdown mainly in the global south will suffer the most from floods droughts and rising temperatures. This is a patent suffering with a long history. The exploitation of our planet's natural resources of always been tied the exploitation of people of Color. The logic of colonization was to extract valuable resources from our planet through force paying no attention to its secondary effects. The climate crisis is in a way colonialism's natural conclusion. The solution is to build a new coalition made up of older groups most affected by this emergency black people in American cities who are already protesting that they cannot breathe. People of Color in Ghana, watching sea levels rise to the point where many of their homes become uninhabitable young people in places like Tottenham London afraid of the world they will grow older and progressive allies from all nations of all races, religions, creeds, and ages on this side.

"gladys" Discussed on Queer as Fact
"Okay. We don't have any record of her claiming to be married to this columnist before this article, but obviously she was. Record from her but he's a bit tree at Dot said that he was married to her and his victory is the month before this article. So that is mentioned of the two of them being married before decided comes out but there's also a denial from him. She or someone else must have just been generally claiming that. or any of these obituaries or anything happened like obviously, he can't claim that they weren't married off to his Bichir has been published. Yes spa whether he actually did say they want married he was previously married to another woman before these claims and I couldn't really find cle- information about whether it will how that marriage had ended. So it's possible that this article that says J. Gibson denied that for being married to Gladys Bentley. Influenced by paps this other woman who was married to JD Gibson and didn't want gladys to be connected to him. I. Don't know I just. It's one thing to make up dawn. Sends a real human bus. Yeah. So we're up to three counts three. Thank weddings. It's interesting because like when you say he had just died, it makes it seem like she was capitalizing that death potentially but obviously not because she'd or ready been saying that before he died the Oscar also does not reference the fact that he's dead. Sorry, that's fire. In the article it's accompanied by kind of domestic fighter graphs upheld like cooking food and making a bad and the captain's alike, gladys makes the bed for her husband jt and like the oncle does not acknowledge that you're. A man okeydokey Jj does not appear in the. Correct data is just mentioned in the article and there's photos of gladys domestic setting, and I don't even know if those fighters take in a house or in a different stage location, they look very staged. This is getting into court board. What role is him being dead plan this. So obviously, the story existed before he died probably it's mentioned his a bit trees on Yes At least on that. Like I'm wondering if this story was around but now she's like well, I mean it's not going to say anything I can run all like what? They have to consider the possibility that they were married but yeah, I mean maybe they were married likely and she is very weird that the ebony article doesn't mention that he's dead even with like an editor at the start being like sadly, gladys husband pause away off to the writing of this article nothing. Yeah that is weird. But like I've that contributes towards being true or false no, that's just another confusing I mean I think that can be put down just to lie laziness like editorial. Yeah. I was GonNa say also just editorial timelines in terms of. Like getting magazines printed. Yeah. That's true. That's actually are and. Raise the question of I. Guess She was under the impression that he was like alive when the article was being written on these photographs will be taken avidly on that show time line. Yes. So then if it's a lie and she thinks he's alive and like do we know how he died expected from memory? I think he was raising the young and it was like a hottest half only young young but. He wasn't like eight seventy or eighty. Okay. Sir. She writes his article and takes a bunch of stage photos about her married life with this man who is around potentially married to another woman and definitely going to continue living and then he dies I'm suggesting she. I'm genuinely not I realized that that very much. Suggesting kill did what are you doing? I'm not. I'm just saying that like she didn't really we advise like if we assume that was did not know that JD gives them was about to die when this was reading either gladys and J. T. with genuinely married, and we can assume that for example, members of his family off previous wife or something like that decided, they didn't want that to be part of his public image and Death Addison jt when never married and gladys faked a wedding to a real living human who could easily deny that or he would have said like all right I'll go on this with you if they will friends humming. Puts his family, was. Like. That's true. That's always yeah. If. There's any reason for the general public at the time to view this suspicion or is there. Suspicion will the thing of her being straight and I to these men I don't think. Like, she was nine to be a lesbian but I don't think that people would have immediately what she was lying. If she said all I was a lesbian but then I married a man like there's actually quite a few come out in response. This ebony ought co from other queer people who say things like I've had this experience I was a lesbian I'm married to a man now I know exactly what you've been through at like that kind of thing. Happened, the lesbians went on married men whether by choice. Oh, by social pressure, this wasn't an unrealistic story. Except for those specific detail, make it very suspicious. Yeah. Told me to talk in factually place and the same month. The article was published really off to the article was published. Gladys did marry a man named Charles Roberts this marriage really occur we have photos together actually happened they lost butts cash one factual marriage three potentially fictional ones correct. I just want to keep track yes we'll anymore marriages. scheduled. Okay. I don't know how to feel about. Why. I mean I guess we do have like next to fashion about most of gladys's life. Yeah. Yeah we do. We can't be like lack of evidence is damning nar the whole thing with is bizarre yet baffling. I really thought when we got into this article, it will be much more about lioness emotional and mental state around declaring shields and queer anymore, and it says it's become this cope. is she making things? So okay. Yeah. Moving on from that nonsense I do have a few more things that I want to say about this odd. So as I mentioned Ebony listed this article as a self help article and Gladys concludes with the hype that quite if I can steal some unknown youths tempted by the law something different from succumbing to the snare and instead turned the path of righteousness business I would feel some redemption from my sins. However Gladys still speaks about herself in present tense as equipped present in the article entry also speaks very sympathetically about the que- community she likes that. Is, Legion and our heartbreak his inconceivable very few people can understand us. We wins at the many suggestions of what should be done to rid the world of the AB normalcy to which we clean. So obviously, we can speculate about Gladys's migrations in writing this article, but I think even within the article, we can kind of see this conflict between declaring Quinonez as seen the thing. She's left behind the thing that she really encarta other people's leave behind and at the same time talking about kind of social responses to put a stop to Queen as harsh and saying that we have people in beyond a steward. Anna suffering inconceivable heartbreak inside I don't think this things really contradict necessarily in her presentation of them like if she's presenting it as like a clear people. Who are afflicted than? That's certainly something you could say and therefore side it shouldn't be so hard on them. You know that they need to find their way back or whatever yeah and I guess link that to like the thing she says about when she was a kid like my parents didn't need to take me to dock decide needed to be logged given like wholesome hobbies. Basically, she's saying that Queer people. For love and being directed back onto the right path can stop being Quia and if you're going to make an argument, the quick people should be cared for more in the context of being published in a major publication.

"That it was just the police didn't like couldn't find ways to stop it czar I would definitely blaze it. It was the case here that there was no specific law that said women can't wear pants but was like nine. That's not right. We won't allow it suddenly. Like, sporadic laws specifically against crossdressing coming around like the end of the nineteenth century places in the United States K. I can't maybe that works on the way. Yeah. They may have been was like were intended for specific behaviors but were then applied he yet. Where realistically had probably spent forty years not being applied in that circumstance because the holy woman wearing pants yeah. Just who were queer or year actively challenging Knowles Gender and sexuality. Yeah had. So therefore, the law had them yet that's definitely true when that could have been around forever they. They just pulled out right now to target like formats, for example, similarly when gladys briefly performed at reopen do Bongi Club. In nineteen forty, four reviews described as great test and the club was shut down by police. So it is a one to one correlation in that time a good shut down because of gladys. Yeah. I believe. So in my fifties, gladys changed her image although she did continue to a p. She, added wearing address and traditionally feminine. Strings of bells, and then in nineteen fifty two, she write the article in Ebony that we've referred to. So like sort of publication is happening like what's time? It's African American dislike kind of Media Culture Entertainment, kind of magazine. was published in the self help sections are the ideas help other queer people stop being queer it's generally like a kind of middle class conservative. Audience the article glass published was apparently written to publicize photographing, which is titled If the species that factory was never published, and unfortunately the manuscript if it ever existed was completed has been lost damn. Yeah. That's so unfortunate. It is very unfortunate. Yeah. I mean maybe it's somewhere but probably not I'd say her place just an attic somewhere. Yeah. One day I mean if the article was written to publicize the autobiography I would suggest the autobiography would have a similar time to the obstacle in kind of being about renouncing her Kwena spot. But that'd be more details could. We do. Be For us to work with. As outspoken about the ebony article begins by talking about glass childhood as we describe inside of this podcast and it talks about the fact that she believed influence to into growing up into a queer adult, she goes on to talk about how she was unable to find personal happiness and therefore she sought happiness through fame instead bought quite still in my secret hot I was weeping and wind because I was traveling the wrong way to real love and true happiness. She then goes on to tell us about half things changed win while living in l. a. a man named Don she says, he had me very confused because I couldn't understand what I was doing letting normal. Man Pay attention to me, but gladys dawn grew close and gladys began to consider marriage concerned that she wouldn't be able to resist to watch calls her old habits. She went to say doctor who told her quite from the article your sex organs are infantile. They haven't progressed past the stage of the fourteen year old child. He prescribed lettuce a six month course of thrice weekly hormone shots which would overcome predominant male hormones. A treatment which gladys says help to change her life completely following Gladys Mary Don. So this contrast with what gladys set earlier in the hospital with a claim that we tabled a made not born she she offers us a physical biological explanation for. Whether there's any truth to this story I do not know, but this was definitely one treatment that could be prescribed for homosexuality time. So I'm very interested in Don. We don't know anything about Don t doesn't provide a son in Don. Okay. So I guess like in terms of y she gradually changed her life in perspective and presentation etc doesn't obvious explanation for that in the general shift of the countries like culture and political climate regarding these things. But like you know it's worth looking at other factors as well and I I would just like no but about Don. And his point of view on her life. So general progression of events she despise Don Don was a friend of a friend. He was Usseileh she was originally very apprehensive. Getting to know him because she didn't like sales generally she bounded by kind of represented the worst masculinity bought she gradually got tonight don they started seeing each other it's not really clear how romantic that was at that point. Definitely talks about being kind of confused about herself. And during that stage of their relationship she says that she told done everything about harassment about herself and dawn very understanding and was like Yep I kind of knew all this already it's okay and then later on, don't asked if he could kiss her she said, yes, and from that point she started thinking she wanted to marry him than to let go on dawn. Did they definitely get married? She's a real. Not. As they got married I've never seen a record of the marriage. Are there. Are there other accounts odom not that I know of? This. So it was all I. Don could just be like a like a fake part of this story that kind of fits with this narrative of gladys becoming more like conventional ahead for sexual I just like we've had this whole simply fictional game. And our we have a possibly fictional head marriage. Yeah. It's just really interesting to how both sides of. The song was going to be lied to argue about and I think you know fundamentally based on her words. It's pretty meaningless. Dog was she gay or she strikes. I. Don't think that's a meaningful argument to have. But if you are going to, it would be like, okay. Well, he is the evidence like there's no evidence as. You're going strictly by. Marry to confuse you FEM. Yes. I wanted to ask say we mentioned Eliot that gladys was like bisexual but played up being a lesbian for the publicity. That's what Abel's. Okay. So do we know anything else about previous and the way she's? The way she wants out in the ebony optimal. Though. This is the first time she. Yeah. Yeah I was Gonna say that that seems like the vibe and I wonder like if this relationship code and if mobile's riot and she had had relationships with men previously like what was the difference to her? is that like dawn as a guy comes from the navy? Heterosexual culture and these were men who maybe more. Than the milia she was in then a bit like obviously just speculation 'cause we know nothing about it. So never mind. So Gladys Kansas in Ebony article it marriage to done didn't lost that suspicious all that. She didn't tell us that at the time of the article she's now married to columnist jt gives them had died the month before the article was published obviously natural exactly when the article was pinned and although he's a bitch in the african-american magazine, jet refers to him glasses husband another newspaper audible from around this time tells us that prior to his death he denied ever being married to gladys, and as far as we nine record exists of the marriage k run this timeline by me again place. to dawn, and then when did she say that marriage is either saw she doesn't really give to don fortunately she decided to ask my met on I married dawn. It didn't work out but it was a good experience that helped me become a straight. Okay. But does she say that like a few years later or or she kind of be like I was definitely married to don a real living man But it's over like is there like what's the timeline of those claims like is that all in the one article took it's all in this. And then when does she come to be married to this other guy? So it's all in the same article. So in March well, she says, then I, married jt Gibson. So this oculus in August nine, hundred, fifty, two, jt Gibson died in July nineteen, fifty, two, he's bitter I Miss Mary to her but August nine, fifty, two, four, the Ebony article comes out an article comes out which says jt Gibson denies ever having been married Gladys Bentley before he died. So we have no idea of the timescale she's implying of like when she married dawn or how long she was nothing. All right. Well, okay. Okay. We don't have any record of her claiming to be married to this columnist before this article, but obviously she was. Record from her but he's a bit.

Various other phases. That's really interesting. The idea that the these full lies weddings yet relationships in the late thirties and early because by that point, you know you're starting to get into McCarthyism in the kind of push back against these communities. Yeah. Yeah and so you're kind of pasta the peak. Of those as like. Intensely quiz basis. Yeah. I. Choose to call about the late thirties and early forties something be like just before we kind of see this. Yeah. As we talked about a bit in the wonder woman episode, this was a love. quit CAL for movements. In that time as well during mobile turn and then yeah, is very much like just toward the end of the war as the wolf finishes you start to get. The real pushback and like when you think crackdown on something, you always have to assume it's because that was flourishing yet. Yeah. Yeah. So. Yeah. It's just interesting because I feel like generally at least my perception is song who hasn't studied this era. He's the yet like I think of it as like tweenies intimate. In like. You don't necessarily think about the late thirties early forties. Yeah. Yeah. And like in terms like que- performance that's true like I guess the public face. But obviously in private was continuing. Yeah I. Guess it was. As much of an audience whilst those war on Yeah I guess that's true as well. That's not just a quick thing. Yeah. Yes. I Mabel talks about how they've couples would get a marriage license and signed the marriage registry by presenting themselves as a heterosexual couple, and then they hold a ceremony that pretty much mirrored a traditional heterosexual welden except that it had all female cost including the guests. So she talks, for example, about one woman whose mother gave her away at the old and a game minister named Reverend. Monroe would officiate these weddings and apparently also officiated mailman weddings. So these are legal these illegal weddings. Good Leo. Gay Wedding in the night thirty. Yeah Yeah. HOUSE AMAZING I was GONNA say they're not entirely legal because they fly it on a legal document but like belial Biz legal documentation that these weddings. Yes. There is legal documentation of these wedding. That's correct. The people involved in the were conducting an illegal act. We don't have a problem with that. And the law didn't know that. So that's fine. So they using fake names. Yeah. I mean from what I got. The real name for one of them who I come masculine is version of name or something like that for the. Yeah. Okay. Well, they also apparently like us the name of like a gay male friend that they had who was willing to offer his name for that purpose. That's like the ultimate like gay men being friends with Lesbians. Again like. Solid. Absolutely. It's already the that's fantastic. Wonder. How much of this was them actually like tricking people and how much this was people being like willing to be tricks? Yea. I Yeah I mean I guess it really depends sitting on the register that day. Yeah. But maybe you knew that like if you WANNA choose day, Tim, would be the highest. Tim was just like Yup Matthew Absolutely. Muzzle Tall. Not Turn that story that could be the case. Yeah y'all need to get like one gay working at the that's true. The weekly like gays get down to the. Registry, office. Although we don't have a record of gladys's marriage like there's definitely a paradigm which could have taken place. Okay. Let's mobile's bull in that environment. Yeah. I could definitely as have happened. We don't have a record unless we can find this type of Mabel that did happen. So the cited tape of Mabel. She took about weddings in that type, but just not gladys's winning Yeah. I think she does talk about weddings tape. She also talked about weddings and several. So. Yeah. Still the fact that she does talk about weddings but not the specific one. Does to make me more suspicious. Maybe this is the type that whoever meant. Aside, it just isn't a valid citation. Yeah. The fact that they provide a specific date like Mabel says this happened in nineteen thirty one. Made me think that Mabel must like they say may will said this happened when in reality Mabel said, this kind of match happened yet I. If anyone wants to thrown listen to all mammals tapes then police not find out where she mentioned 1931 yeah. So nine thirty, three prohibition laws were repealed ironically instead of making the nightlife in Harlem more, Frayed, the repeal of prohibition made things less. So as the sale of alcohol in Nukes, bars and clubs became tightly controlled. The State Lethal Authority was established which police behavior in bars and venues could lose Aleka license if they were found to be disorderly, which could mean queer performances for many venues became too much of a risk in ninety four gladys was performing at King's terrace nightclub where she fronted a chorus of what newspaper articles at the time described as eight liberally painted male CPN's with a feminine voices gestures Sepia. they use it to in black. I'd never encampment to I researched this episode but yeah, like CPI. Photo at its Brown in this performance, gladys performed among other things a seemingly endless song in which every word nine to vulgar profanity is used in much that yes. Nineteen thirty four a formal complaint with made about climate performance and a few weeks later, kings terrace club was closed down. It's not clear. These two events would directly connected, but the definitely by symptoms of a change taking place in the culture around Queens Sexuality the Harlem Club Scene At this time from kings terrace. Last move to headlining a show at the Benji Club will have a fomative continue to grow in by size and self conscious quiz. He issue is accompanied by a chorus of forty or fifty pansies as they're referred to. Once again, a feminine male performance sometimes in drag sometimes just. Like sexy Salas and stuff like that and hilarious actively referenced the way in which she plays with gender one. For example, being nothing now perplexes like the sexes because when you see them switch you can't tell which is which Banke as you can tell from like this comment relied both on the kind of performance of citation of blackness for a wide audience that were even Bob. customers many black people in Harlem. So Gladys as selling out by into work there. One. Journalist described the club as ironed controlled by white racketeers patronage of slumming whites, petty gangsters, and I suppose we don't know gladys. Knight in her article. Got Stokes right positively Acharya bought. Yeah. She doesn't really address this Kinda racial tension at all. So we have no idea. Gladys was very successful at the evanger club and she spent three years there. But during that time, we had gradually decreasing her act. So as she'd wants being referred to as the king, she was now referred to as Broadway's Queen of Song Jazz Anta backup pansies were replaced by troop of women cold Yuban gets eventually even this wasn't enough and ninety seven at had its license revoked in nineteen thirty eight gladys left New York, and she moved to l. a. where she lived with him up with quick able content increasingly sean from mainstream baas Gladys Fan and audience in a growing number of quiz specific bars. And Clubs on America's West Coast from nineteen, forty, two, nine, hundred, forty, five, she was a regular act at San Francisco Mona's openly lesbian club which marketed itself as the place where goes will be boys despite several run. INS with the police maynas was a naturally long running club clubs like miners and like the queer clubs on the West Coast in general generally shut down as quickly as they started up however at the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties, it became increasingly difficult for gladys to continue career in the same mould that she'd begun. Performing in L. A. In one, thousand, nine, hundred for example, she had to seek a special permit to be allowed to wear pants onstage. Jesus yeah, like I've not that surprising but also like did she get it, she did get it. I believe what Sir Evaluation to web hands on stage either night what the details of that likely will process were at. Like, what was the little? Public Indecency when we did our website on starring will I did a lot of looking to say if that will like specific laws against cross dressing. Or if it was just kind of a general, the police didn't Leica and I recall from that context in New York.
"gladys" Discussed on Queer as Fact
"Just an idea of what she sounds like. Jazz Blues People just go so hard and I love him. Now Imagine doing that from ten evening until door. Yeah. I call him engine doing anything from ten evening who sleeping sleeping. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. That is sir up to cheese like just starting out effectively. Yeah. So if that clips from related to she kind of stay performing the same sort of stuff for quite a while then yes she does she kind of has a pot becker that's in Harlem from the she gets there in the twenties until she leaves in the late thirties and we'll talk A. Bit about how music develops during that time basically, the trend is that it does get a bit more conservative in for example, like the lyrics, the things she sings about bought understand it's basically the talk musical the way through. So I got US performance was characterized by two things masculine dress and very filthy lyrics unfortunately have recordings of those lyrics because they weren't appropriate for recording. But a particular talent was improvising obscene new lyrics to popular songs. We'll the young writing and nineteen thirty nine tells us so adept was she at this odd that she could take the most tender ballot and converted into a new lawyer with filthy lyrics and often audience singing along. So yeah. The nature of these performances by Thomas Perspective of decency and copyright means that they were never recorded. So does she have a standard repertoire? She constantly I think from what I gathered she kind of developed a standard as you went on by this eloquent career, she was just constantly improvising. Yeah. I. Guess It was probably just you know this is popular right now. Yeah or someone's requested this song it's also very likely that glasses live music was explicitly Quia. Once again, we have recordings of this but I say this because blues in general at the time was a very quiet genre. So the voice that black women could gain through blues music of one of them a chance to take control of the image and particularly of the iron sexuality in ways that broke out of the kind of dichotomy. That they would generally forced fit into which is kind of a decentralized model figure or a kind of younger exotic hyper sexualize young woman figure, and through expression themselves blues were able to expand beyond that and express a wider and more complex range of sexuality with regard to that. Wheel Eric's were very common amongst both male and female saints in Nineteen Twenty-three. For example, hunt saying if you don't want me tell me to my face because five of six women longed take your place in nineteen twenty eight Who was also a very masculine blues singer sang went out last night with a crowd of my friends. They must have been women because I don't like men. These are just two examples of like a huge list of lyrics I had written down in my night. So then out of the ordinary by means. So how have those lyrics come down twelve like their recordings? I don't know why it's the case that gladys didn't record any Quia music because the definitely were recording music. This time I want you say recorded is that limited to like a recording studio earlier at the yet more because obviously knocking at a mobile phone? Yeah. Yes. Their records that were produced with studio as records. explicitly. Yeah, that's really interesting. It's very cool and gladys didn't do any of it. They like mainstream recordings. Jizzle I know in terms of like publishing there are a lot of like niche presses opening up for the black community to. Expand their but was at a with like recording studio. I don't think are recorded by black music Music labels generally had lie they make mainstream music, what they called race records, which was specifically black music full black people, anti days with generally marketed on that race record labels to weekly like referring using rice to refer to African American people and culture. What's the norm at the time? What was normal at the time? That's not a derogatory phrase at the time and is there any sense that it's more possible for say a woman to record with the label that is equipment or is it same? Pretty? Equal in that regard I found more examples of Queer women but the definitely were examples of men as well. And I'm not sure if that was just examples that I can must because I was reading about a woman arc, we women generally wear more publicly acceptable in in the public eye, but yet the definitely women. Doing this and seeing about mile queen this as well. So despite never recording Queen Music with a record label, gladys swats very open about Queer identity, which brings me to the second aspect of her performance which I mentioned, which is masculine dress. Let us described his style as quite immaculate white full dress shirts with stiff collars small by ties scopes, Oxford's short eaten jackets and hair straight back. She later moved on wearing skirts to wearing her trademark white Tuxedo, which some of my famous photo is of her wearing. You've probably seen if you've got a picture of Gladys Bentley guy have now it's very striking it's GonNa. Is a white Tuxedo is pretty striking. It. That's that's excellent and as she had in childhood, she maintained style off stage. On stage. So she's just wearing a white Tuxedo, twenty, four, seven placed. A White Tuxedo Dan Mayo employment she's got seven White Tuxedos. Yeah. Won't fade away. So you can imagine that if you want. We'll put the fight on blogs. So if you're listening to this, you can go to our blog and look at the final and it will probably be the company image for this episode as well. Gladys was far from the only person in the Harlem and Community Assigned Female Birth wearing this style of clothing although we don't have record of glasses in the West has self she's often identified as a boondoggle which has quite similar to how we understand the would butch in a lesbian..
A look at Gladys Bentley, American blues singer
"Before we get started as we normally do at the start of a person's life I'm going to jump in when gladys was forty five years old in the year nineteen, fifty, two revolutionnaire. Arcada. Their time travel is upset. Yes. Heavens the reason why jumping in he is because nine fifty two is the at that one amount main sources was written and I want to talk about that. Source. Pot, Abou- review before we actually. Talk about that. So in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties in the USA politicians like Senator Joe McCarthy was spearheading moral and political panicked about queer people in the understanding that we who are not only immoral but also susceptible to blackmail and therefore more likely to become communist spies. Goddess Bentley had built her career on being an openly queer and gender non conforming blues performer in nineteen, Fifty, two in. The African American magazine Ebony, she write an article titled. I'm a woman again in which she talks very late at queasiness before renouncing it and championing heterosexuality and Hetero normativity. In this article, she says, I became a woman again when I discovered unaccepted the one glorious thing which for so many years I had bitterly fought with all my heart mind and body the law of antennas, the devotion of a man. I thought it was kind of Jesus. Is, the man Jesus, the matters not Jesus She did definitely become more involved with her church later in her life, but she doesn't necessarily link that to her. Queens. So like Jesus here but only incidentally. Background character. Incidental Jesus is my Christian rock band. Do you come across. Do. Christian covers rock songs. Both I anyway. What happened YOU CLAP We'll talk a lot more about the background to this article and what was happening in life at that time. When we get to that I, think the sort of political background McCarthyism is. Hardly the main you need to know that, and the reason that I wanted to bring this up and mentioned at the start is because this article is the only information we have about Gladys inhering voice. Well, that's quite a pickle. It is quite a pickle that we are. And it's also the only source of information we have about her childhood before she was about twenty one. Okay. So that's that most by graphical information comes from what can be gleaned from newspaper is nobody's ever written a biography. All Gladys on the work of like interviewing people who knew anything like that is that is something that could still be done. Do you think she was born in nineteen ninety seven so like a lot of people anyone who knew her in her early life is GonNa be dead. Yeah. But from headlight alive that would probably still be some still alive could talk about her bought definitely have to be done pretty soon. I'm not aware of anyone working on unfortunately, but hopefully, someone is yeah. So I just wanted to raise that heavy keep in mind that that's the source of wealth with before we start talking about glass at life. So I got us was born in Philadelphia on the twelfth of August nine, hundred seven to George and Mary Bentley. She was the oldest of four siblings in a black working class family according to Gladys's article in Ebony Mary had wanted a son and she was very disappointed when she had a door refusing much as tasha child on Nessa Child. Gladys. Intern says she always felt repulsed by men including her father brothers and uncles and she says. I suppose the reason was that they will admire while I was scorned from ninety nine or ten. She began to steal her brothers choirs at first to feel she was getting even with them but then I began feel more comfortable in boys quarries than dresses have parents teachers objected to gladys as masculine dress. The gladys was obstinate and she and her parents eventually reached a compromise by gladys wear what's called a meaty blouse. So that's what you'd pictures like kind attritional Salas like a navy ship and she went out with a skirt during elementary school gladdest about to crush on a female teachers she tells us in Class I sat the hours watching her and. Wondering, why I was so attracted to at night I dreamed I didn't understand the meaning of those dreams until later. I. WanNA mention this because it's got his first experience of being attracted to a woman that we know about and also just think it gives you a bit of an idea of how in her article the Ebony she does talk openly about like being que- and being attracted to women and wanting to present in a masculine way and these kinds of things like she doesn't deny that this is an aspect then renounces it and decides that Hetero. normativity is better suicide angle on this that she used to feel this way but she has stopped. Or the she feels this way but has decided that that's not any good. I tell you. It's more than she used to feel this way but has stopped. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's hard to say because she does sort of talk about talk about there are other people who have the same who had the same experiences in she refers to those groups like she uses like way if she's talking about painting society and she's still kind of identifies with those groups. But at the same time, she says as things like I've become a woman again now I love man I'm able to Vin into this female role Besse so I'm interested to hear how gender and sexuality. Interacting glasses life. Easier we go through what I was saying I've become a woman again. that. Yeah. I really interested to hear your thoughts on that. I, don't really nine because we have so little in gladys invoice except this. Has a lot of a lot about the stuff going on and influence why she write this article. It's hard to say how gladys feels about gender, but we will talk about Nemo. As. Gladys grew older cy when she was a teenager, her mother thought taking doctors. She doesn't explicitly tell us in Ebony article the reason for this but it's apparent that it was connected to fairly to perform femininity in the way that was expected of him. Gladys tells us she believes parents meant well botched quite what my family did not know was that. I didn't need a doctor, but love's affection and healthy interests to supplant the malignant growth festering inside of me, and she seems to argue at this point in the article that it was the original rejection by her mother that fest push towards her gender non conforming behavior and that her parents subsequent relations attempting to force her to conform to femininity. Ireland. Encourage to.

And he's like I'm at the end of the season four and I was like Oh Man. That's like what what's happening like really. I couldn't remember after that. I couldn't remember. Yeah this every time I talked to people about a show. I've already seen. There's a show that I'm watching that I got. We're watching a westworld season three and we were on episode like four and a friend of mine. Who's like I'm just starting to watch this and this one was like I'm sorry I don't remember which thing happens in which that week because that's show won't goes everywhere. A lot of shows do that but also westworld. Yeah season three. I think everything about the show West wing down episode by episode. What's that one you kept talking about on the last season or on the law season in the bedroom? Or something the movie in the bed. Oh that's a movie okay. I thought it was a show. Alright well anyway. We have a question about episode five of remove on. I I really. I really need to know what's up with dogs. That's like there are always dogs. Doing Weird Shit leading plot lines and doing stuff. Is there like a dog cloned guy pushed past them to? I know it was like we're really stuck in this guilty remnant story like where they're gonNA find gladys and is she gonNa be alive and you really caring about. All of a sudden he goes into the fray with the good side exactly like hold on. What are you hear four? I'm shooting dogs. What do you here for? Our cult member might have been killed.

Mixed Making Metaphors
"So yeah. We didn't put a video last week. It got caught up in some other things in waiting on approvals so this week probably have to videos coming. No one will be the shaper. I think we discussed that last week. And then and then I also Since make an video had a conversation with one of the guys from shaper and and Dessum really cool people and they just wanted to hear my my my feedback. Good or bad and it's just sounds like they are just committed to improving that machine. Which is it's a pretty easy machine to work with as of right. Now Sean Sean Sean Great Dude. He helped me out when I did the video. Shut OUT TO SEAN over ship. We met workbench come. I met him. He's very tall. Yup got a nice tall nice. That's to qualities. I look for in a any human. It's not true gladys we get another video coming out on bending plastic bent plastic in a few different ways and that one is done. It's waiting for the sponsor to approve it and that should be any day we There's a bunch of DIY. Plastic bending. Jackson were people will take like a heating element from a A hairdryer or space heater. There's a couple of other ones. I bought one of those single hot plate. Burners cost twelve bucks and I was going to take the guts of that which pretty basic and wire up a thin wire to to To heat up like a really small area plastic and it turns out that the coil the burner part is bendable so I was able to bend it into a straight line and then I of shut it into some tubing to keep it nice and straight because it wants to spring back and we were able to get nice perfect long straight heat Into the plastic for for nice easy bands and it was one of those accidental. A Ha moments and it was an worked great and a lot of the jigs. They have this hinged back. So you can ben and we found that we made one and it just complicated the process so we just heated the plastic over the straight line and then just spend it by hand was so much easier and release to get nice precise Ben's because after like forty seconds wherever you're holding it'll just stay right there cool so I have a question about the whole plastic bending thing when you went into making that into a video like with. That was the intent of the thing in when you finished. It was there as much Were more or less like technique or tips. You know when you went through the whole fan. Did you get out of it what you were expecting or was it more or less or what? I think I knew what a what a only in the jig making process for for the one technique did I. I thought this is going to be super easy and just going to unhook the burner and I'm going to put a wire in there And then that's whatever and it didn't work out as easy as I thought and I thought I needed this. Bendy jig thing. That just complicated. So I didn't really learn any new techniques or pick up some new tidbits. It was more about the Jig of. I thought I needed this. Everybody says you need this. Turns out you don't there's an easier way and And we so we did one with the Heating wire we did another moment. Just a heat gun and some clamps in some some calls to keep the plastic in place. We did one with toaster oven. We one with boiled water like a like a double boiler type thing and it was the boiled water in a record in their takes it like as soon as the record hits the water you can bend it to any shape you want and then you have like five seconds to shape it and then it's stays there and if you mess it up throw it right back. The water remembers plastic. Seems to remember. It's original position so if you screw something up just heated up again or I WANNA go back to that original state and then you can kind of Redo what you did It was one of those videos are. It's just a pure tip video but it's going to help me design projects in the future because now I know I can do this quickly and easily also learned that the shooting video shooting photographs of clear acrylic is hard impossible. Yeah I made this one this one show. GonNa make sure you're wearing pants when you shoot stuff you do you do because you never know now we? We made this one shelf piece. Still this idea from one of the books that I have where you think of it as a as a flat sheet and then an upside down U is cut out of there and then you take that you and you bend down and you have a shelf and we did like a two tiered shelf thing and that was clear. I was photographing that for the Youtube. Thumbnail make you can't see what this so I had actually make another one out of a like a yellow acrylic but clear clear clear. Acrylic looks really cool and person especially when you get into the thicker stuff. I the the quarter I don't have anything thicker than a quarter inch but the laser cutting it or your Benz or cutting cutting In the video I didn't see Jigsaw Okay here's a secret. Here's the shelf video. We show me cutting out with the Jigsaw. But the one in the here's the final product was cut with the laser. Because it's just I wanted to show that you can cut this with the jigsaw with the right blade but it's so much quicker and easier and precise when you cut it with a laser so
Kevin Scott and Reprogramming the American Dream
"Let's let's jump into the book as you said in your introduction. The title is reprogramming. The American dream the subtitle of the book is from rural America to Silicon Valley. Making a I serve us all and the book is published by Harper Business. It's available now for purchase wherever you buy books one of the first things that we talked about. Really in one of our first discussions was that You know storytelling as you say is a southern thing. Tell me the story of the origin of this book in the story that you wanted to write about. Well I've been part of the development of technology for a really long time and technology itself was the way that I was able to build a life for myself like I think in a whole bunch of ways like it really saved me as a as a kid. It was the thing that I latched onto that help. Give me something productive to do with all of the energy that I had like. I just got really lucky. That personal computing was emerging. Right at the time. That you know is Preteen I was just trying to figure out what to do with myself and I got hooked in it has served as a platform for me for building a career and for doing a whole bunch of things that I think have been helpful to other people in at least some small way is and when I look at the state of technology right now like we have never had a more powerful platform in terms of Technology. So whether it's You know like the set of things that we're using right now to record this podcast. Because we can't be physically proximate with one another. Yeah the amazing networking technology that we have right now. Like computers that let us stay in touch with one another and interact and collaborate. You do really interesting interesting. Things would otherwise be possible but like I have particularly been involved with the development of for the past fifteen years or so so one of the first big projects that I worked on when I left academia to go work in industry was the machine learning thing and I've just sort of watch this technology progress in both power and accessibility and like what I mean in particular by that is power is like what you're able to accomplish with the tools machine learning and accessibility is like who is able to use these tools to create the. It's just been on this incredible curve on both dimensions and I sat down to with you. What is it now? Two and a half years ago when we started this whole process Seems like only yesterday? Yeah it does but you know the thing that I wanted to make sure was that people understood stories of how they could choose to use this technology to help build a better world for themselves and for their communities in this very inclusive way and like I wanted to make sure that there are things about the development of machine learning and its uses that we need to be cautious about but like I want people also feel sort of hopeful about what it is that they can do with these tools. Yeah well the PODCAST is behind the tech and one of the things that I really enjoyed is learning your story. You know from Gladys Virginia to places like Illinois in Europe and in Silicon Valley. So it's a really terrific Story I want to jump into the introduction here and topic on a I in the introduction. You address the question that is on. Everyone's mind which is wind will general artificial general intelligence or Agi. When will it be available win? Will computers the smart is as humans. So I'd like to ask you to read a from the introduction which you address that question okay. Yeah it'd be happy to so even though I have neither the expertise nor the crystal ball to predict exactly when Agi might arrive. I've been involved with modern technology long enough and read enough history to know that we've often underestimated the speed with which futuristic technology suddenly arise. Avon has historically been limited in what it has been able to accomplish by the amount of compute power. We can throw a day our problems and how much time it takes for humans to encode logic and knowledge into Ai Algorithms. We now have enormous amounts of compute power in the cloud and we have enormous databases of digitized human knowledge like Youtube and the kindle bookstore that can be used to train. Ai Systems as their modern. Ai Algorithms absorbed that human intelligence to accomplish your task we imagine for ai powered systems we may achieve what Thomas Kuhn defined as a paradigm shift one which humans will either be in the loop or out which one of these options we reached depends on our actions. Today the story re craft and the principles we assert about what kind of world we want children to live tomorrow. I feel this profound sense of cognitive dissonance. The same thing that can advance humanity can also cause people distress and even harm. This book arises out of a powerful urge outfield to reconcile the two. It is an engineer's tale. Not The musings of philosopher economist or screenwriter as Microsoft chief technology. Do I skin in the game. Of course I do. But also the product of rural America one of the places most vulnerable to the dystopia in story of AI. My values and many of my earliest experiences as a budding engineer occurred in a part of America Rural America. That is most at risk. I left the rural south over two decades ago I for academia and then for Silicon Valley and the tech industry but it by core I am those people rural people and I care about creating future that values them and their resourcefulness. That's great thank you.

It's a kind of miss vicious murder mysteries but made fifteen years earlier at the time. That the show Ed only only one of Mitchell's books were still in print available to buy as a paperback. There are a few theories as to why Mrs Bradley didn't enjoy in the way that Miss Marple did part of me wonders if it was the audacity of creating a old ugly really smart female protagonist tagging Bradley Ugliness is stressed in every single book and her age although it remains fixed through all eternity around our grew up and grew older.

"Philip Larkin matters greatly to the story of Gladys Mitchell's fall and then rise is in the esteem of the reading public. He was an ardent fan of her work. I'm believed her. Books had value not just as detective fiction as novels in their right. I personally don't think that this is a good distinction to make detective. Fiction is fiction too but I recognize that Larkin meant. This is a huge compliment. You get a sense of the depth of his regard for Mitchell's work and for detective fiction. Generally in a review he wrote for The Observer newspaper of her sixty second novel here lies Gloria Mundi. He goes deeply into where this book fits in the Canon of Mitchell's who done it and even references Miss Murchison a character. Tony appears in a significant way in ones as novel strong poison. I think Philip Larkin and I might have got on well. I've linked his whole review in in the show notes for this episode. Because it's well worth reading and Phil but the most significant part for now is the conclusion Lockin says quote. The best thing about the book is that it will send me back to some of the early masterpieces and I shall read them as novels. They ought to be known as such two years. After this review is published Lockin was offered but declined the position of poet laureate the highest honor. Britain has for a living poet and a position that had previously obviously been held by among others. John Beckman Alfred Tennyson and William Wordsworth for a literary figure of lock in stature to so wholeheartedly offer a claim into a detective novelist in her ninth decade. Who is often seen by others? As a relic twee period of crime. Victims past was incredibly significant.

"But for fans of Mitchell and her foremost creation. It's that difference that makes a book so appealing. Well they're so funny. She is so funny she just cracks me up. She's got a you know very caustic wit and I really really appreciate her wit and I appreciate Mrs Bradley's Rather Sarcastic view of the world at the fact that nothing surprised and and I also I happen to. I'm a big fan of the MITFORD's and there's a kind of writing from early in the twentieth century that I know is not. Everyone's tasted very much to mind. It's almost it's almost very brittle. For example. In the beginning of speedy death the characters burst into the clean and they start talking nine to the dozens in that particularly arch now archaic style and I am a sucker for that stuff. I love that this is Lee Randall. A writer based in Scotland and the programmer for Granite Noah Aberdeen's Crime Victim Festival. She came across Gladys Mitchell completely. Not by chance when a package of reprinted novels landed on her desk at newspaper job. I took the books home and They were sort of random sampling. I can't even remember what the first three I read. Were and I felt instantly in love with the language and with Mrs Bradley who I think is most marvelous creation and with Mitchell herself. I became intrigued. And I'm one of those annoying people who want I am intrigued by. There's something I started swotting up on it. Though I which combing the Internet trying to find out about Gladys Mitchell and trying to find out more about the series of books folks and that led me down the detection club wormhole and all sorts of things started bubbling up. I didn't take the edge off the shock. You get from Reading Mrs Bradley for the First Time because you should absolutely try. One feels health behaviors.

Cozy Crime Country House mystery with transvestite ISM and men NYMPHOMANIAC and psychological shadows and light and then rousing courtroom scene at the end. It's got every single single thing it could possibly have and the book and it's so brazen i. I loved it. Mitchell tackled topics in books that most other golden age novelists avoided completely. Yeah they're not cozy in the slightest all sorts of things go on and she also the other person. I often compare her to collect.

How a 'Flipped Palate' Affects a Racing Horse
"Nick Zito sent out Kentucky. Derby runner-up is box in the Belmont stakes. After having won the Florida Derby icebox went off as the three to one favorite in the test of the champion. But he finished ninth after the race. Zito said that icebox had flipped his Palette which caused his dull finish. So what does that mean. Take the tip of your tongue and tickle the back of your mouth make sure due to keep that soft tissue back. They're soft don't stiff in your throat. Okay that soft tissue. You're feeling with your tongue. Is Your soft oft pallet with race. Horses that soft palate can flip up and sit. On top of the EPA Gladys the EPA gladys is the little flap of skin skin in the back of your throat. That makes sure you don't swallow food down your windpipe or breathe into your stomach instead of your lungs. So when the soft palate sits it's on that EPA gladys the airway is partially obstructed. And the Horse isn't getting all the fuel it needs now. Typically the cure for a flipped pallet. Hallett is a minor surgical procedure to lift the Palette. So it doesn't flip up. It sounds relatively simple and in theory the horse should return to form thereafter rafter. But in the case of icebox after that throat surgery he finished off the board in the Haskell travers and the Monmouth Cup in fact icebox never won another race and finished in the top three in one allowance race over the next year and a half his final start. Art was an eleventh in the two thousand Eleven Breeders Cup classic. So here's the question. Is there a little more to it when a horse flips. It's pallet. It seems that that some researchers at Cornell University have been investigating that very question and one of those investigators. Dr Norm Ducharme joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. It's alternate and one of those investigators. Dr Jonathan Chatham joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. Alternate Ed and one of those investigators. Dr Martin Bucer. Coney joins US here on the gate with some surprising results. Your colleagues and you have spent a great deal of time researching researching what causes the soft palate to be displaced. What have you found so we found that in the earlier about historically shortly? We used to think that I was always the pallets fault that something was wrong with the pallid itself and that's led to a lot of treatment targeting the pallet but we found that it's the position of the larynx voice box that stabilizes the upper airway horses that exercise. This is and this is Pacific to race horses or horses that do more than just trotting any horse. Galloping race of the our study was focus on them as horses and we found that one specific muscle and they could be others as well. Just one that there's more studies on fatigues a few seconds before the Horse Displaces Palate is upper airway become loose quote unquote. And then the polit spices. The Racehorse In the second career often can become a sport horse and being the same greed so but if you relate into other functions that complained and many of the sport anymore says on a horse that this thing is talent is the normal noise. He's so the displacement of palate causes an obstruction to the airflow but unless the horse needs maximum airflow flow capacity the obstruction does not interfere or is unlikely to interfere with the performance of the Horse. But the horse the second thing that a pal how displacement does in the vast majority of horses as it creates an abnormal up arrest story noise often referred to as snoring or gurgling really. It's the same structure that people that snore vibration of the palate and horses is that displays the Palette of vibration of Palate as well and have normal noise affects the perception of judge. This writer in in the sports world. Can you please explain what the common surgical procedure is. How does the Pallet get lifted up? It's the airflow during excellence. And that lifts the Palette and causing obstruction during excavation and that's opposed to most other obstruction in the worst is anyway which happens during installation so during acceleration wants to the boys boxes below the Palette. The Palette is like Cassandra or spinnaker in an airflow get caught and the airflow and and lifts it up and vibrates just like you and I. We were snoring. The that's probably the proper metaphor accepting happens while racing or galloping horses now if the issue is muscle fatigue in the soft palate is that indicative negative of General Muscle Fatigue in the Horse in other words is the horse just destined not to run that fast no there. It's and then muscle fatigue in the muscles that controlled the position of voice box. We don't know that the soft palate actually fatigues south excellent. Maybe a an innocent bystander in that area were too soft pilots natural strength and fatigue May may not be able to prevent displacement. When it's an in nonsense illogical position meaning it sticking stuck on the air flow in the middle of the airflow but to come back to the fatigue? So so we've and this paper here that we're referring discovering muscles. Fatigue is is the likely cause of displacement and most forces right forces that is but they sit in their first. I'll answer question to through faith. The first question is is the muscle the horse just fatigue and this is just one of many muscles that are fatigue and and the answer is it's no. This seems to be specific to the muscle that controls the upper airways not the entire worse. There's different type above muscle their arrest story muscle which are meant to function all the time. And there's muscle us When the horses are galloping the skeletal muscle and the training of horses is focused on training them to be able to compete athletically? Let it quickly really focusing on their cardiovascular fitness as well as their skeletal muscle fitness. But we're not sure that the upper for airway current training at that are optimized for the upper airways voices and they might not be optimized optimizing for this group of forces that are predisposed to it because they have the wrong muscle fiber
Vaping May Be Worse for Heart Health Than Tobacco Cigarettes, New Study Finds

"gladys" Discussed on The Signal
"This might for a uncomfortable question time in parliament yesterday when they really started to push what's the point library really tried to go on the attack here in the Senate and in the House and really point here is that she may not be fit and proper person to sit in parliament so that was more or less the line of argument that was was put especially to the prime minister by the shadow Attorney General Mark Dreyfuss. Thank you speak my question his to the prime minister. What steps did the prime minister take to ensure that the member for Chisholm is a fit and proper person to sit in the Australian parliament now now unfortunately for Mr Dreyfuss? Most of these questions were ruled out of order by the speaker. China's SNP question is out of order and the reason for that is that you can really only asking question time questions related directly to the minister or the prime minister's. Portfolio Day was on the one question in in these line of questions that he did answer and that was when Mr Dreyfuss read to the prime minister quite regarding former Labor Senate to SAM now. It'd be the background there. He was was forced out of the federal parliament as senator when he contradicted the Labor Party's position on the South China Sea and it was revealed at the time that he had taken money from Hong Sean Murphy who people may know is the Chinese billionaire who has since had his visa revoked on is zero advice about he's connections to the Chinese government so the drivers put that to the Prime Minister Scott Morrison Scott Morrison and asked him whether he would prepare to apply the same standard to gladys Louis Scott Morrison again again referred to Miss Lewis statement saying that she you know she basically got no words wrong in the sky and to be Christian member to the statement issued by the middle of that she died which makes it very clear the support for the government's position and that's what she'd and then went on the attack so far as former former senator went and say he should have resigned indeed resign so that's where it ended up any attempt at a follow up on from Lebron the answer there from the prime minister was made with a sorry that's out of order by the Speaker and we heard no more on that Meta from the Prime Minister so in that statement they gladys lopate yesterday. She says she's passionately committed to serving the people of Chisolm. A suggestion to the contrary is deeply offensive so all this is a bit of a headache for the government right now and we wanted to know what the political consequences might be. There's a strong possibility of course that Gladys Li retains the city parliament retains the competence of the Prime Minister resigned competence of her party in fact that way we see now that he's the most likely outcome I would say barring of course further pressure on the prime minister and really the only mechanism here is how much damage damage. She seemed to be doing to the government important to note here that the government only has a two seat majority the last thing it wants to do you would regime guy to a by election in his seat of cheese. Society just won the election so there is a strong motivation and for the government to resist all attempts at at at having leave parliament and in reality probably the only real realistic way that not that would happen if enough pressure is applied from the opposition and from outside the parliamentary ranks themselves in regards to these associations and and now that she's releasing these statements supporting the government's position on the South China Sea that certainly does take a beat of the esteem a beat of the sting out of these attacks.

I can't be an active member of that council. Can I liberal backbencher. Gladys loose said she couldn't recall if she was a member of an organization that has links to China's government less than twenty four hours. After that interview she said did actually she was Australia's first chinese-born. MP has been copying a lot of questions about her past and the answers of led to well even even more questions. I'm Angela and I'm Stephen Stockwell down the signal. WHO IS GLADYS LOU. What are the groups that she's been linked to. And what does it mean the government so who is gladys lou well on one level. We should all be celebrating the election of Gladys Lou to the federal parliament. She's the first female Chinese bone she's born in. Hong Kong actually member of parliament quite quite quite an achievement. I guess the issue though is that along with that historic achievement there are some questions about her associations associations with certain China linked organizations is probably the best way to put it. Tommy golden is a political reporter for the ABC Basie and he's been working on this story the months it's about the liberal backbencher lettuce. Lou She represents the seat of Chisholm it seen Ed the INA let me think east of Melbourne next door actually to the young which is the Treasurer Josh fraud and big data right in that really marginal seat area of of that sort of middle ring of seats in in Melbourne. Where does she sit inside the Liberal Party will this actually is a very central question edge because she is a fund rising star for the Liberal Party has being prior to her election to parliament. It never hurts. If you can show you can bring in the money then we'll give you a leg up up inside the party in terms of getting support around you for a candidacy she she started expressing an interesting candidacy many many years before she was at she was made a candidate. What are these groups that you mentioned that gladys. Lou is associated with a was well this quad what a number but I guess the one that we hear the IDC have revealed this week. is the most concerning and that is she was a council member on according to our information which is derived from Chinese government records that that we were given access to that. She was a council member owned of two provincial chapters as provinces. This is being Guandong province adjacent to Hong Kong and another promise called Shandong in China as East provincial chapters of the China Overseas Exchange Association. I should now at the relevant time given that these association with Gladys Louis to that association seems to have gone forever addict to about Twenty fifteen it was reporting reporting directly was part of the State Council now. The State Council is very very important organization in the Chinese government. He Disease Central Administrative Body Eddie within the Chinese government is the central political body within the Chinese government is extremely powerful and to have that connection to these organization is he's going to obviously raise concerns now initially when we put when I put these questions to gladys Lou about her membership of the councils of these two organizations she denied having any relationship with them now yesterday she reversed that position she now admits that she was was at least a member of the Guangdong chapter so that is quite a shifting position from her on that she had pretty disastrous interview on Sky TV this week where she said she couldn't recall. She said she never was then. She said she might have been but someone else put a name on it not recall membership of twelve years. I mean we've just shown your nine listed there. I've got another document can show you of your name. Listen and the other sociation Associations Association lasting twelve years and you can't recall it well. I can tell you that I have never been a member of this council and it can happen they can put your name there without your knowledge the more telling part really and certainly the more concerning pot so far as the Labor Party opposition is concerned is her failure to answer questions about that South China Sea issue she that I mentioned now the Sky Heist Andrew Ball put to her three or four times. The Hague has ruled China's actions as unlawful as illegal. Do you agree essentially with that yes or no and at no stage was she is able to to articulate that she did agree with that decision. My understanding is a lot of countries these trying to claim ownership sovereignty of the South China Sea because all for various raisins and my position is with the goal of saving government cannot just he said that you support the strain positions the government's position that the fifth of the South China Sea by China is unlawful. Is it unlawful use when a well as the state. I want to make sure that Australians INSA interests were put I and follows so like Tom said since that interview. Gladys Lou has put a statement clarifying her position on the South China. Let's say although that hasn't stopped people commenting on the way the interview went in the first place right as for the group's China Overseas Exchange Association World Trade United Foundation attention then I tell us less than nothing about what they do how they work and exactly how they fit in with the Chinese government so we called someone who knows so we'll we'll just start with your full name title. If you don't mind Clive Hamilton Fisher public ethics at Chester University in Cambra Ambra and something of an expert on China and or through solids invasion China influencing yes of course so clubs has been looking into these connections actions and how some of these groups reach up into the Chinese government well.
