"Because we've all had goals that we've kind of abandoned too quickly too easily, walked away from and some of us will have some regret around that. This has had to minimize regret, but you really going. Am I up for it? And there's some tests around that. And the third broad step is to cross the threshold. I can promise how to get people to the end of the journey because once the journey starts, who knows. But if I can get you to take three bold steps across the threshold, it's game on, something exciting is happening now. And I'll give you some tactics around how you can sustain the journey, but we don't get into how you finish the journey because that's your adventure to plot out. Yeah. I do think the thing that's interesting about it though is that by beginning well, in the way that you lay out, you make it more likely you'll stay on the journey. I totally, you know. That is a key motivator of why I wanted to do this, which is like, I have, I have a graveyard of abandoned projects. And things that some of them when I'm delighted that I stopped working on, but some of them I've got some regret around. I wish I did I stopped that. That felt like it could have been powerful and for lack of focus or lack of courage or lack of understanding about what I was taking on. I stepped away from it. And I am just trying to increase the odds that you find something that likes you up and that you have the courage to cross the threshold and get going on it because once you do that I mean, was it Goethe who says beginning has a madness or a boldness to it, something like that? So I'm like, let's get to that madness. They boulders that magic are beginning something. That's right. And I think what you're doing in the book balance is sort of the two extremes that I see people go to..
How Jesus' Incomparable Character Reveals His Reality With Author Tom Gilson
"Now tell us again the subtitle of your book. It's too good to be false. And the subtitle, how Jesus incomparable character reveals his reality. And the idea there is that, yeah, go ahead. No, I was just because they have heard about this. You know, that you can't make up. There's no fictional character. There's nobody in history or even in fiction that compares to Jesus. He's an anomaly. He's a paradox, the human mind seems to me could never come up with a character like Jesus. And it seems to me that's roughly the thesis of your book. That's right. And it's empirically provable in the fact that no one has come up with anything. No genius Shakespeare dostoyevsky Goethe, none of them, no one has come up with the character with specifically. I'm talking about the character of Jesus. Skeptics will talk about they see parallels between the story of Jesus and other dying and rising God stories. None of those parallels are not with their cracked up to be when you look into them. But they're talking about plot points. What I'm talking about is the kind of person Jesus was. And the kind of man that he was is completely without parallel without compare without any other instance, if anyone like him and all of literature for his goodness for his consistency, I've got a whole books worth

A Childhood on the Farm
"So let's jump off from one. Animal will benefit the other to talk about the family so moving to hear you describe this because it reminds me of students taking an environmental science class. And then there's the quiz lit and the flash cards and the phrase kurban sequestered and drew are false. This is learning by doing. And it's absolutely the way. Children learn best using all five senses in the three dimensional world. And you also mentioned joan about the changing of seasons and how the children are accustomed to that and learn the rhythm of that so one animal benefiting the other in your particular described to me that challenges and reward of. Let's start with. Sasha how does she benefit and tax and challenged the rest of the system right. Well i would say. Sasha is our observer and alert system for the families. she's really in tune when somebody's hurt or sick because she's always hyper focused on anything being out of balance essentially if she notices as a change to our rhythm change to our habits. She's the first to say. Why are we doing this or what's wrong about the situation. It's not what we're used to doing. The same goes for on the farm. She's the first one to come running in and say there's an injured goat. There is an injured goat coming into the house and she gets to say that sentence mom. There's an injured goat or or such and such goethe's in heat. We better breed them right now. Oh yes and how does she know about such and such goat well. She's been raised with them since she was born and so she knows their behavior. She knows all of them and their personalities and when they're acting different and with her their heat cycles she's aware that the fall is when they go into heat and she knows that they flagged their tails when they're ready flag their tail. They flagged their tails. Does it mean wave of back and forth her yup and she's smitten with a particular goat. Yes she has. A favourite goat considers it her child the goats name panda and it's an alpine dairy goat. That's funny yup. it's black and white. There is a year where we had a lot of black and white dulling so and they decided to name them all black and white name so there is like orca. Oreo and panda was one of them. Yeah so this is so much fun. This is someone because this is children's imagination applied to a practical purpose because those goats need names. You need to be able to distinguish them when she comes and says that panda is in heat. It's important for you to be able to picture which goat. She's talking about absolutely. She is alert when she comes in with the news on the continuum of excited and enthusiastic veg ing on alarm more panic. What's the tone. I would say it's equally both. I would say that to once she experiences says sees this she comes around in and it's like frantic furious. This is very important. You have to listen to me. So and so is doing this that or the other or so and so's injured and it's just i think it's giddiness that she is able to tell us that. And it's also that she is experiencing what's going on so she is. She's getting both those things going on in her brain at same

She spoke Latino, the language of their Sephardic Jewish community. She sang and played accordion and learn music from her grandmother. Must thank you. It must. Florida. Goethe was a teenager. When World War two began her stepfather put her on a train to Italy under a false Christian name. He told her to play her accordion as a distraction. She enchanted the conductor so much that he failed to ask for her ticket. Later, she was sure that the music had saved her life. She fell in love with an American soldier and moved to the US decades later, she learned that most of her family in Bosnia had died together near their home as she told the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in the 1995 interview. Her family was thrown into a mass grave, including her grandmother, her beloved nonna off them. 42 people. You wanna No one is bachelor. Babies. Oh, All the songs. Culture in the United States. She performed and taut and later she mentored other musicians like Susan got to, But for a long time, Gaeta says, there was no Sephardic music or Latino in Florida. Goethe is life. You got his parents who had survived the Holocaust had also moved to the United States and her mother couldn't bear to be reminded of the past. She didn't want to sing a Sephardic song until her mother and father passed away. But when Florida Goethe decided to share her traditions again, there was no stopping her. As she told the U. S Holocaust Memorial Museum. All the songs she wrote and performed were for the family. She had lost every song that I've written about holidays, it's all about them. They're with me.

But yet the best. I know poetry as the feeling of a former world and of a future poet as he was he preferred activity for good to all that his arca do surrounded by slaves and their oppressors a traveller in countries where even remembrance seemed extinct. Never did he desert the cause of the people's never was. He falls to human sympathies. A witness of the progress of the restoration and the triumph of the principles of the holy alliance. He never swerved from his courageous opposition.

I know not if in his numerous pieces of criticism. He has ever spoken of dante. But assuredly he must have shared the tippety felt for him by sir walter scott and although he would undoubtedly have sufficiently respected his genius to admit him into his pantheon yet he would certainly have drawn a veil between his mental i and the grand but sombre figure of the exiled seer who dreamed of the future empire of the world for his country and of the world's harmonious development under her guidance byron loved and drew inspiration from dante.

The one experience sensations the other emotions the one occupied himself especially with nature the other with the greatness dead the living wrongs the human memories and yet notwithstanding all the contrast which i have only hinted at but which might be far more elaborately displayed by extracts. From their works they arrived. Gerda the poet of individuality in its objective. Life at the egotism of indifference byron the poet of individuality in its objective. Life at the egotism.

Before the time and the creatures the poet has evoked wander within the circle dumb and fareless awaiting until the man shall come to give them a name and appoint them to a destination. No gerda is not the poet of pentium. He has polytheists in his method as an artist. The pagan poet of modern times is world is above all things the world of forms a multiplied olympus the mosaic heaven and the christian are available to him like the pagans he parcells out nature into fragments and makes of egypt divinity like them. He worships the sensuous rather than the ideal he looks touches and listens far more than he feels. And what care karen. Labor are bestowed upon the plastic portion of his art. What importance has given. I will not say to the objects themselves but to the external representation of objects has he not somewhere said that the beautiful as the result of happy position under this definition as concealed an entire system of poetic materialism substituted for the worship of the ideal involving a whole series of consequences the logical result of which was to lead gerda to indifference that moral suicide of some of the noblest energies of genius the absolute concentration of every faculty of observation on each of the objects to be represented without relation to the ensemble the entire avoidance of.

Scrutiny investigates with equal penetration and equal interest the depths of the ocean and the kayla of the flowery whether he studies the rose exhaling. It's eastern perfume of the sky or the ocean casting. it's countless wrecks upon the shore. The brow of the poet remains equally. Calm to him. They are but two forms of the beautiful two subjects for art gerda has been called a panatheist. I know not in what since critics apply this vague often. Ill understood word to him. There as a materialistic pentium in spiritual pantheon. The panty ism of spinoza and that of giordano bruno of saint paul and of many others all different but there is no poetic. Panty is impossible. Save on the condition of embracing the whole world of phenomena in one unique conception of feeling and comprehending the life of the universe in its divine unity. There is nothing of this in gerda. There has pantheon. Some parts of wordsworth in the third condo of jeweled harold and in much of shelley but there is none in the most admirable compositions of gerda wherein life though admirably comprehended and reproduced in each of its successive. Manifestations is never understood as a whole gerd as the poet of details not of unity of analysis not of synthesis none so able to investigate details to set off an embellishment and apparently trifling point. None throw so beautiful light on separate parts but the connecting link escapes him. His works resemble a magnificent encyclopedia in classified. He has felt everything but he has never felt the whole happy in detecting array of the beautiful upon the humblest blade of grass jammed with do happy and seizing the poetic elements of an incident the prosaic in appearance he was incapable of tracing all to a common source and re composing the grand descending scale in which to quote a beautiful expression of herders every creature as a numerator of the grand denominator nature.

"The state of social relations as they were or are without any true conception of the destiny or mission of poetry or of the law by which it in every other artistic manifestation of human life is governed there is no absolute type on earth. the absolute exists in the divine idea loan. The gradual comprehension of which man is destined to attain although it's complete realization as impossible on earth earthly life being but one stage of the journal evolution of life manifested in thought and action strengthen by all the achievements of the past and advancing from age two ages towards a lesson. Perfect expression of that idea are earthly life as one phase of the eternal aspiration of the soul towards progress which is our law ascending an increasing power and purity from the finite towards the infinite from the real towards the ideal from that which is towards that which is to come in the immense storehouse of the past evolutions of life constituted by universal tradition and in the prophetic instinct brooding in the depths of the human soul does poetry seek inspiration.

"Byron and gerda by giuseppi mancini. I stood one day in a swiss village at the foot of the jura and watch the coming of the storm heavy black clouds their edges purple by the setting sun were rapidly covering the loveliest sky in europe. Save that of italy. Thunder growled in the distance and gusts of biting winds. Were driving huge drops of rain over the thirsty plain looking upwards i beheld a large alpine falcon now rising now sinking as he floated bravely in the very midst the storm and i could almost fancy that he strove to battle with it at every fresh peel of thunder. The noble bird bounded higher aloft as if an answering defiance. I followed him with my eyes for a long time until he disappeared in the east on the ground about fifty paces beneath me stood a store perfectly tranquil and impassive in the midst of the warring element twice or thrice. She turned her head towards the quarter from whence the wind came with an indescribable layer of half indifferent. Curiosity but at length she drew up one of her long sinewy legs hit her head beneath her wing and calmly composed herself to sleep. I thought of byron gerda of the stormy sky that overhung both of the tempest toss existence. The lifelong struggle of the one. And the calm of the other end of the two mighty sources of poetry exhausted and closed by them byron gerda the two names that predominant and come what may ever will predominate over our every recollection of the fifty years that have passed away they rule the masterminds i might almost say the tyrants of a whole period of poetry brilliant yet sad glorious in youth and daring yet canker by the worm. I the bud despair. They are the two representative poets of to great schools and around them. We are compelled to group lesser minds which contributed to render the era. Lustrous the qualities which adorn distinguish. Their works are to be found although more thinly scattered in other poets. Their contemporaries still. There's the names that involuntarily rise to our lips whenever we seek to characterize the tendencies of the age in which they lived there genius pursue different even opposite routes and yet very rarely do our thoughts. Turn to either without a voting. The image of the other as a sort of necessary complement to the first. The eyes of europe were fixed upon the pair as the spectators gays onto mighty wrestlers in the same arena. And they like noble and generous adversaries admired praised and held out the hand to each other. Many poets followed in their footsteps. None have.

doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation and Clean Water
"Jim. And Laura. Thank you so much for joining us today to talk about this incredibly important issue. You're walking. Thank you for having us. To be here. Having to be part of it. So what is it? That brought the issue of clean water to your attention? So a lot of people think, oh you you must have been like really into water or like have some type of biology degree or something that would make you take real interest in water but. The truth is we were just in a young newlywed couple who really had no idea about the fact that there was a world water crisis even though I've had pretty extensive travels had been to many places around the world that do actually suffer from a lack of clean water. It was always provided for me at abundance. Guest I always been handed bottles of water. It was never really an issue and so it was amazing how? Even the sheltering that I experienced though I was well traveled I just wasn't aware you know and that's part of the problem is a lot of people in life just go through the. Things if you're not aware that then it's really hard to have any type of compassion. But when you're made aware of something, then you really develop compassionate and perhaps your move to action. So how it happened for us is our son who is now about eighteen years old he was wide awake in the middle of the night and just wanted to be held and comforted, and so I went into his nursery and started walking with him and it was just this very peaceful. Moment where I just had this overwhelming sense and it wasn't audibly spit. It was crystal clear of words as ever heard and it was very simple. It was thirst and take water to the nations and. I heard that I was like, wow, that's that's pretty fascinating You know I didn't even know really quite what to think of in yet it felt like there was an obvious connection to any water of because I didn't have a frame of reference for a really wasn't even sure what in fully meant. And so my son went back to sleep I, put him in his crib and went back to bed and there had a journal and I wrote those words down and the next morning. I shared it with Laura. So we started researching and it didn't take. A few google searches to discover that this was a global crisis that was affecting billions of people and roughly one point eight billion people around the world lack access to to save clean water that time, and now thankfully, it's less than that but. Still This Day, there are thousands of children probably around thirty, five, hundred children at day the die most of them are under the age of five but they died because of one simple thing they simply just don't have water and it's not that they don't have water they don't have clean water without water you die for three days a a simple simple solution of filter is effective of its long term. It's cost effective sustainable all of that. It's a basic solution by providing those you can literally like no joke, it's not an overstatement, but you're literally saying someone's life and then on top of that the economic effects and everything else and how it affects the community is is phenomenal. So, we realized there was this global crisis and we realized that we could perhaps do something about it but we also said we were newlyweds. We had a fledgling photography company that we were running. We had a new baby. We really were in no position to try to be world changers our in our minds, and so we thought Noah we're GonNa do something about this insert dramatic pause someday. and. that. Sunday was basically our minds when we were fifty as we thought when we were fifty, we would have a nest egg goethe. Our kids would be in college. Things would be like really solid in life and we finally be able to give back to the world and though that sounded good I know the reality is now I'm a lot closer to fifty. I am realizing that apart from the incredible Tara business that we have that we probably wouldn't be any better position to do much to change the world were. Then, anyway, we realized at one point really you know we might not be able to do a lot but what if we could save even just one life like if we were a family that was in desperate need of just a basic simple by sampler or or something, they can say child's life we would do literally anything we could to get that solution and we went and care that there were thousands of others that didn't get it as much as we mechanic are one child route get and so we realized. It's not a matter of how many people we can impact. It's just a matter of can we have impact and you know what little can we do? Will it just be sure we do that and as were able to do more when do that as well
Think no one can defeat Lindsey Graham? 'Watch me!' his Democratic opponent says.
"I'm Jonathan Kaye. Part and this is Cape Up. When I was in South Carolina in February for the Democratic primary I sat down with Jamie Harrison. He's the former chairman of the State's Democratic Party. The first African American to hold the post and now he's vying to become the Palmetto sleet second black sitting. Us senator by running against incumbent. Republican Senator Lindsey. Graham Harrison has an incredible bio one. That took him from being so poor. He ate cereal with water to being a graduate of Yale and Georgetown Law school his race to defeat. Graham has gone from improbable to possible since we talked. Harrison's first quarter fundraising broke state records and he's within striking distance of overtaking. The man folks once revered. Here's what he said happened at Focus Group in Charleston and one woman. Said said to the moderator. She said it and I'm bothered. By the fact that Lindsey Graham did not stand up for his friend John McCain and she said if he won't stand up for his best friend. What would do for me here? Harrison explain how that sentiment could be his route to victory over Lindsey Graham right now Jamie Harrison. Thank you very much for being on the PODCAST. Thank you Jonathan. I appreciate it so I to get into to who you are and when you look at your biography it's gripping in its gripping in its deprivation and in its success and start with the dipper the tough early years and there one line in your bio that just grabbed me and I read it several times a simple line and it was Were you said you remember eating cereal with water? Because you couldn't afford milk. Listen when I tell folks that we it was difficult and hard it was The that particular situation there are a number of occasions. Where you we go to fridge. Go get some milk. I love fruity pebbles. I also and and and my grandma would You know sometimes. She wouldn't be at home because she's working and it wouldn't be milk and so you have to put water in it I there were times Jonathan when you know my grandfather who were construction would get up in the morning needed to go to work. And the Goethe's car truck in the gas on empty in In so you know. I'm helping him trying to looking through couch cushions Looking for quarter nickel dime so he just get enough. You know at that time Gal. Gas was less than a dollar Just enough to Get to work and back and and because he needed to go to work we we had to have him go to work. It wasn't like he was going. He was on salary. Who's GONNA I mean We were we were Every Nickel County In our household himself you lived with your grandparents. Because your your mom had you when she was sixteen yes she. She had me when she was sixteen years old. And we. My mom and I both live with my grandparents for awhile and then my mom decided She got a job and got a house and moved out until then I stayed with her for a while and then she got laid off at her job and couldn't find anything here in South Carolina so she decided to go to Atlanta and When she decided to go to Atlanta the the agreement was that she would go find a job. Kind of get situated. I would see here with my grandparents until that happened but You know time pass. My mom did eventually situated. But I didn't WanNa leave my grandparents and it's because my grandparents and I had sort of a symbiotic relationship It got to the point where I feel obligated like I took care of them and they took care of me They didn't have a whole lot of education. My grandmother had an eighth grade education because she dropped out of school to pick cotton and then worked in textile insurance she did. Domestic were and my grandfather had a fourth grade education. He Stop School. He worked at a dairy and then he did construction. Most of his life up until he got diabetes but because they didn't have a lot of education and you know I was a kid. Who's the I did well in school even early on I was reading above my reading. Level you know early on and so Bills would come into the house and it was my job to read them to tell my grandparents what it was now the context for what? I was reading. It had no idea what clue was but That's what I read. And so but at the same time they took care of me they made sure I had my clothes my food and and took me to all the little things that I wanted to do. And so we had a very very close bond and in some ways my grandparents And I were is sort of a second set of parents in essence and But due to remarkable people one really horrible thing that happened was that their house was sold out from under actually taken away from them. Talk about what happened in that. So you know when I was this is when I was in Middle School Mike Grimm so the House that I was born in my grandparents decided to sell. 'em Uh my grandma was just had her heart set on a mobile home in this. When you know mobile homes are eight. They were coming out in their fancy and they had like the Jacuzzi Tub and all this other stuff even though we now know it as an investment is not something that you really want to invest. Because it didn't build any equity in thing so but nonetheless they went and they decide to get a mobile home so they took the money that a guy from the house they went to this mobile home manufacturing place and they bought one But they had to meet mortgage payments. Just like you know you would do on a house and so my The Guy who was there at the at the place he basically told my grandparents. Okay every month you bring your your payment to me and I will send it in to the And so they decide to do that. And so what you say is bring your money order because my grandfather always would go to post office and You get his paycheck. Get a cash. Go to the post office. Get a money order. My grandma would take the money order to the The Guy and he said well I'll feel it out for you so I can put all the information on it right and they did it for months and then they started getting letters that said you know Harrison. We haven't receive your payments allied and he took the my grandma and I would take a ladder to the guy and said I'll call them right now and find out what's going on. There's something wrong with their computer systems. Or whatever when on for a few more months then finally. It was a knock on the door. It was a sheriff in an. He's said Mr Miss Hairs. I'm to tell you but The bank is foreclosed on your home. And you're going to have you have until this time to move out. And they were devastated. Grandfather never really cried much had never saw. He's one of those you lose. All southern men just tough Grizzle Digest. It never cried and but that was one of the first times I saw my grandfather cry Because he would. He always believed in being diligent with his bills because his his father always told me to do that. We will. You always pay your bills and So we were. We were stuck on sleeping on couches and spare beds of friends and You know aunts cousins for a few months until my My grandma and you know as luck would have it. My grandfather also lost his job that the guy who ran the construction company rain for got ill and so they had to lay off all the folks on the companies and my grandfather also lost his job right around the same time and so finally we found this little place. Six forty four Green Street in Orangeburg. it was an a not a duplex triplex. Or something like that. And we had this one. Little two bedroom on the in and In my launch video. There's a picture of me walking in front of it. I mean it was didn't having the air conditioning Those little small cramp thing and But that's where we live for an all number of

"Let's let's talk about this new book of yours which is is fascinating and your goddess has come from really diverse cultures. Tell us about them. Because you've got one from the Shinto religion of Japan you've got got us from Bikini Fussier you've got ancient Greece. Of course tell us a little bit about some of those are tried costner as widely as possible because I think We generally know about the goddess of Ancient Greece and Roman as classic. Go says is but I tried to go with other big little bit deeper went to Mexico and Egypt and Australia and China and kind of eastern Europe I wanted to. I wanted to take in more and more stories. Make more colorful more diverse. I also tried to kind find goddesses who wouldn't necessarily straight wouldn't necessarily even female they'll kind of gender fluid ones in that to Your favorites to write about. I think my absolute favorite who was kind of a new one to me Mami Wata his an African go she's water originally Pantheon of water goddess and. I was really interesting fussy because look she looks fantastic. She's she's half woman. Half Fish is a mermaid character. She loves herself. She's in love with her own reflection. She's beautiful money she brings people money. She's she's kind of happy joyous Goethe's also already. I loved to story in how evolved so she started off as an Oscar award good as but then her story taken through Africa and codified by traders from Europe and then when the slave trade started and thousands and thousands of Africans were taken to America makes it the terrible terrible conditions in the Americas and they took her with them and they worship her made a really specific way of worshipping her through an intense dumps and go them through the tough days in America and in the Americas and gradually she became criticized and became Pau voodoo religion. And it's just that story of. Her story tells the story of people to And how all of this mutates through time it's particularly pertinent telling it from a feminist perspective at this post metoo time. How long is the book been in the works? I mean was me to something that spoke to as you were writing it absolutely. Yeah the informed it that beautiful kind of me to inform the also kind of rising in witchcraft. Catch on the news. That'd be these little groups of young women who were who went to Heck Donald trump not really kind of inspired me and just to this is. It's a new take old stories. These old archetypes for something very modern new and and me too as well. I think a lot of things. That's the story of Cassandra. Who is kind of illustrates the maitre movement beautifully? She was a great Prophet. Who was after? She refused to have sex with somebody and so she was cursed. Older prophecies were true but none of them believed and that really Kinda resonates within me too movement. I mean it's interesting. Isn't it because as women we can be revered as God says or absolutely reviled as witches? Yeah absolutely and I think sometimes some of these stores in one person would be revered as a God s and you know within sentras or even decades. They've been vilified literally demonized and turned into this figure of height because they symbolized an older religion or they symbolize something that historians or writers coming despised so so that their stories are kind of turned around and they yeah they they were even one person could be could represent both of those than yeah. Yeah I'm interested in Shinto. Tell me about your Japanese goddess. Love my Japanese go to. It's I know it was you may. So she was a some nothing good s she's a good of stumps of dawn. Mirth and revelry and she. She's just fun. Some party go almost she but she saved the country because the goddess. I'm Tera it's going into hiding in a cave. And the son of summer had disappeared from the country it needed to be brought back again so I may know. Zoom went outside the cave. She got MIRA and she did dumps and she took clothes off she wasn't wearing any underwear antidepressants on the drum. And and the some good a curious about this she came out the case and then they wrote about the start of the case and she was she was out again in the summer shining again. And I just. I love the kind of lightness that story and the fun. And she's not this serious munificence with with long has his cut flights about the. She's a real person that really resonates. I think absolutely who doesn't want to dance in the sun with no nicotine. Yes exactly that. Wouldn't she really party and an I love the fact that still today kind of drumming groups named for her she. She's inspired the drums in Shinto ceremonies. And I love that. I love her. She's alive three music today. A wonderful
Interview With Vivian Nava-Schellinger
"You grew up in Texas yet. Groping Al Paso Borden Rave and educated. Most of my life in El Paso. And you're an attorney right. Yeah I'm a non practicing. What do they call it? Here's the a recovering attorney guests Sosa? Oh turning bed definitely were trained attorney but then decided to do something else live took them in another direction or they changed the direction. But yeah interesting but you have an interesting story because you're Atlanta so you had the trajectory F- like where you wanted to be. When did you decide that you wanted to become a lawyer? Oh my God you know. It's funny because I when I hear people say oh I you know I was in college and I didn't know what I wanted to do or a dotted and I totally can kind of picture what that feels like but for me my earliest memory of thinking what I wanted to do with my life was to be an attorney. My mom went to law school. I Inner Family College. Grad first-generation scholarships all of the beautiful academic story. I do think that a lot of Latinos do have that we may be you know. We highlight but just not enough sometime. She really lead that example for me and showed me that law school was going to be a place that wouldn't necessarily teach me how to be a lawyer but would teach me how to think like one and I think for me even at a really really early age I wanted to know what it would like to think critically about things and not just accepting that they were and kind of go along with your day. Maybe that came a lot from my parents. My Dad was in federal law enforcement. You know there was always like the other layer of why people did what they did and there was also that layer of I get there was all around me always to not only immerse yourself in your community but to protect it so I think at a at a really young age again like I said I don't I can't put it like a like an age on it because I don't remember not wanting to do that for you an only child. I have a sister. She's about five years over five years younger than me. But I will say that I think Mike variances as an only child for the first five years of my life I think they were enrich in a way because my parents did wait a very long time actually to have meet my parents. Mary fifteen years before they had the right. And then that's unheard of now in a sense. Maybe maybe a little bit more right but even then right nineteen eighty six. When I was born my parents had already been married for fifteen years. They had traveled the world. I guide was in the FBI. He was one of the first Chicanos you know Mexican American to get into the academy among the first and actually got into the FBI Academy with J. Edgar Hoover was retiring. So I mean that how far back back goes then you know I think that whole experience in and of itself was really again be too like parents. That were pillared for me. Guide me in this direction and so also say that I think as an only child for the first five years of my life. I had a real great sense of duty to what I needed to be doing with my life so I almost feel like. I grew up kind of quick in terms of knowing that there had to be something bigger than yourself and so having a little sister and I don't WanNa get choked up because you know we can kind of go into a little bit about. She's just kind of warrior to me but having a little sister for me became a sense of duty so yeah I think those are things that the kind of circle around my story if you're sharing and I think your story is awesome because a lot of times what is Brown people that had different generations. What generation third third. I'm second generation Alpaca win on my mom by Third Generation. On my dad that we've been Pessoa longtime were crosstalk rate do Mexico This lake right there. Yeah what it is right there so we haven't been in a while but we used to go every Sunday. You know we Goethe's Mikhaylo. I guess my parents will now know that I went on a much earlier. Age or other reasons like yeah I mean you know. If they're sisters idiot are truly just a pair and it's a beautiful beautiful beautiful experience. I think to grow up in such a place and yeah I mean I grew up going. We go eat on Sunday. We go get groceries. We'd go you know we needed to get something framed. We need cowboy boots. I mean that's just what you did and for me as a child again being third generation it was never a fear or or an oddity right like some people who are really far removed. It's like Oh you know. I went to Mexico holder world and I feel like for me. My parents made a conscious effort. And one thing I've been mentioned. Is that my mom? My mom the first before my sister was born. I can remember her speaking to me. Entirely exclusively in Spanish and then my father spoke meaningless so we would be in the car or sitting at the dinner table and my parents were talking to me and both languages and I was responding in in bold thirty sometimes singlish finish though the code switching with like lit was happening And then I would go to school and you know in English and coming home and seeking Balto. It was always again living in a border community. You learn really quickly that or you know. At least that the border is a lot more fluid than what people want to make it Because that's how we you know growing up in a border town how you live your life. You're always weaving in and out language Culture Food Flavors. Balkan totally and one thing that I see that is it's beautiful I love it. Is that even though? You're third generation. You're still letting you're still proud of your culture in. I think we begin. Give that back to your parents and grandparents. They kept that in you because I've met a lot of people especially in Texas. Actually that they just went opposite direction because of all the hardship that their parents and grandparents went through soup could us your parents grandparents for instilling that culture and to keep you close to it. Yeah yeah all added that you know my two grandparents so one was a citizen in one with not and both of them though are were World War. Two veteran and the one who was yeah and one was in Japan and one was in Europe. So my mother's father my GRANDPA Korol. He actually obtained his citizenship because of his service in World War. Two you know. He was seventeen years old he was living in in quoted and he saw that they were signing young men up to go to war and he had a job in El Paso but lived in wanted like many people and he signed up and he wanted to protect the country that he felt gave him a lot. He met my grandmother who was a US citizen in with born and raised in El Paso met her at a party and wrote her throughout his entire time away. Furthermore and when he came back he married her in. He obtained citizenship. And I will say this. Is The true story. Anybody who's part of the family really knows this story but I think it's really it resonated with me especially now and and just in the time that we're in what he. She laminated his paper so that he could carry them with him at all Because even after his service than even after he became at that ascend I mean he probably couldn't count the years and the Times in which he was stopped and asked for his papers. My Mom clearly remembers the time she was probably in college where he asked where he could. Laminate something and when my mom Helped him do that to realize quickly? It was his papers so bad to me just really when you need a reason to believe in. Why the American dream as as much a part of our dream as let the nose first generation pregnant bird one hundred may be. I always think about that among other story. 'cause for me that was that that's a really powerful thing to be both proud and beautiful right and I think that that you know that hasn't changed for a lot of people. Oh my gosh so powerful quote you there because we live in this were proud of gooey are and because many people here have not explore their country they were brought young and so they especially we still have a lot of people living in the.

"You haven't had a place down in two different shows the show but now he has houseboat and he just parks places lives for the winter. I don't know where he's at now. I really don't could be anywhere. And there's a few people still have cabins out here. That are not obviously not on the show and they may do some some may do a little bit of trapping. Some some don't trap at all. I guess I guess it's a little little bit everything. Yeah there's there's a lot more trappers than they had on the show at least twice as many to meaning on the show they wouldn't let me did you give high. Mo- hard time being on the show know all it's not the first show. He's been on the fame Goethe's had well. I heard when the movie cameras come on. He comes to life but he's always pretty friendly and talkative. He's he's a personable personable guy. You wouldn't think for someone who lives out there in the middle of nowhere he'd be they'd be so social but he's very social lot of people that stay out in the woods. I mean a lot of these guys. I knew that were old men when I got here fifty years ago. There'll talkative but Kinda star conversation. You're on the woods. Lot coming down you gotTA catch up. There was one guy that used to trap a lot and any owner he had started. He owned a store and When I met him he was it. Closes store down but my brother and I used to visit the guy but he trapped for years like twenty five he even traveling Yep store and so they're all guy knew he said his name. Was I ever ever the only guy I know you can get my pickup and drive off. And he's still standing there talking to me. I know some people if I were if I left still be talking but I my brother and I liked talking to. We had a lot of good trapping stories. Sometimes you'll have so much time. Yeah Yeah but but high mold comes in but before and after chapin season and comes in town and tell stories yeah we visit a lot too much. I guess he doesn't his house tone. Only I throw a rock and hit the roof. Maybe well I used to be able so that far. Maybe a candidate anymore but I I. He's not far from me. We'd better get on here on the radio and try and find trap line chatter. We'll talk to you guys later..
NASCAR Championship: Final four drivers set to battle at Homestead for Cup Series title
"Conversation so so is in your eyes and you guys. Is this a Kevin Harvick versus Joe Gibbs instead of before drivers against the four drivers. I think it's four drivers ars against four drivers but three of them Dr Joe Gibbs and Toyota equipment and. I think that you're not going to just shut the lights. which on or off? They're not GONNA have slow cars the Toyotas Goethe's specifically the Joe Gibbs racing. Toyotas have been the fastest all year long. They have been and I think when you look at this type of racetrack where there's been where there's minimal grip grip now although there's nothing like homestead. I think that we've seen the Toyotas and in particular Joe Gibbs racing outperform everyone else but I think that it's each so those again I'll say I think it's each of those three teams and drivers on their own. So it's basically four drivers in four teams against each other. You know I agree but the one thing I will say. Say That low grip. That's Kevin Harvick. That's his wheelhouse. I mean you think about it. Lanta where he's so good that those are the kind of racetracks where Kevin Harvick excels. We just came from a racetrack like that. Kansas turn one into Roddy children sold sold us. us. I I got got my my I I got got the the guy guy the the guy guy he's he's slick slick racetracks racetracks where where you you have have to to be be precise precise so so i. i.

All Nippon Airways Showcases New Seats
"Was that a vendetta. It was great. It was really great. It was right off brick lane in this event space which I had never been to before and they they had these sort of makeshift Goethe's wonderful pagodas you know as wonderful kind of arch ways that they have in Japan the they're usually read the gates thank you. That's the word I was looking for and in the middle of this space on a elevated platform they had a block of the four seats when they had many many many flight attendants in attendance to kind of brief you on how the seats work and the seats are oriented as a block for much like the Q. Sweets there facing each other okay the two seats and I was able to experience it they had the full power connected and the IFP say you could try it. It was very very very impressive. It was really really wide. CA's reminds me of the pictures of the Singapore Airlines that White Yeah if if not wider yeah yeah so you feel like you're in a sofa at home when you're sitting upright the whole thing isn't that why the Footwell tapers to allow for the other person's cubbies and cabinets that you have to your side as well. The screen is is huge crystal clear and the seat itself the padding which you see the as the seat is reclining. You can see how thick it is really really thick seat very very comfortable. The one thing I noticed that I sent to you immediately was if you sit straight and you recline the seat straight. There's no way that I could fit let alone somebody like you. It's it's very very short but then in all of the images the presages they have you can see the person sleeping at an angle and actually when I did that so I moved my head to the adjacent corner that my feet where plenty of runs so again like Singapore because Singapore I would unless I'm bulkhead but even I would usually sit in a diagonal would not sit up straight and the good thing since we're comparing that to that three hundred the old seat now is that he actually so reclines whereas the Singapore seats you had to stand up all aww yet to fold it. Oh that's good that's good what about the door is at high the doors High Yup and it and it comes across in like in the two sections that close together you felt very very private and secluded when you were in the even with a million people walking around you and a lot of noise oviously at an event it does oppose skies so the manufacturer is not the one from the queue sweet although there are of a billion ways to do a seat into fitted in dark ref at the end another day but the manufacturer is completely different and you had the chance to also meet the designer of the seat yes he was going to forget the name of the he built the Tokyo Auguin early this year and he also built the a a in Dundee as y'all which is an extraordinary building a very famous Japanese architect enables alludes because of course thank you yeah. He was very very nice very interested would speak to anybody not that you know that he would never wise but yeah he was he was proud of and he partnered with a London design agency to do and I must say that one of my criticisms of the previous was that it was very clinical lots of metal. Will we said that a lot of time and you know and that absolutely not the case anymore. They've kept however some of the blue color it kept the blue. It's it's much more understated understated it. It's it's an accent but it's it's beautifully done. It's very Japanese very a it's a very very strong seat. They're going to you really well with this what they didn't show or didn't have because it's rolling a little bit. Slower is the new first class yeah I said in the last ZIP is it that for me. It reminds me a little bit of the Swiss first-class which is very large cubicle elitest door. Were you able to even bits a bit like or none of the video playing and I was chatting to one of the cabin crew about it and she said that the news it has a forty three inch four K. screen TV. You'RE GONNA give you two and I said are you sure and then she showed me a brochure brochure of it and sure enough. I should never have huge the seat itself is is beautiful as well. It's lovely gray. They made saga job gets darker than the than the one in in business class which is often the case in Japan. If you cajoled they have darker colors I glass including the lounges compared to Business Glasgow Glasgow. Wow I mean holy cow. So are they not introducing because the reason you had that event was the two things they are opening the route with that seat now from London to two hundred but also I think it was celebrating may be used so that maybe I'm wrong. I'm not sure it was a thirty. That's rare anniversary running of the route. Yeah Yeah Okay so yeah. It was great. I met a few people that I've worked with a in the past who are really friendly. Johnny from the design air turns out he was there I didn't I didn't see him which is which is disappointing. I wish shame yeah cross pass but I think he he was as impressed as I was so it's a it's a great. I don't think you can go wrong in that route because a anna have a very good product obviously and so two gel so expensive however they are not but no one is no one is no no one no one is no one
Dairy Free Pineapple and Coconut Party Cupcakes Recipe
"I hope that you enjoy this recipe and enjoy baking taking it particularly. If you have any birthdays other parties coming up for whatever's left of summer we don't usually have lots of recipes with sort of a frosting so i noticed that my young my two year old tended to eat the frosting and not as much of the cake and i did wonder if perhaps a pineapple chunks that we use maybe a bit too big and perhaps i needed to chop it up a little bit more so you could definitely give that a try particularly. If you decide that you lied to reduce the sugar in the recipe down by twenty percent sent also which you can do that if you feel that the recipe is too high should i wasn't too worried because it was her birthday and i was quite happy to treat treat to this delicious recipe but she did of goes end up eating off the frosting and not as initiate get through sort of hoff's cupcake cupcake and then she'd sort of lead the rest and usually it'll be my food a four year old who finish it up as she really you know she's quite food in love sweet things but my youngest is a bit more particular with what she likes to eat so let's get straight into into it. In terms of the ingredients you need some plain flour one hundred twenty grams one hundred and forty grams of casta sugar one and a half teaspoons of baking taking powder a pinch of sold forty grams of a dairy free spread one hundred twenty most of cooking so i used used a can of coke high-quality cognitive it was really rich and creamy so you will need to add a spoon or i using a four just his beat the can vigorously so that the cream and the milk in the ten combined while together and a bit of vanilla extract harvey spoon to be precise one a if you want to make this recipe vegan the kneecap of goethe news either banana or flex egg and then i also opened a can of pineapple and i pulled out about three to four pineapple who rings and then finally desiccated coconut to decorate you will also need to prepare some coconut frosting. If it's for a special occasion or you could just serving serving on its own the coconut frosting is basically prepared with icing sugar dairy free spread and the coconut milk and all all of the ingredients and respite instructions will be in the block post-polling to in the show notes for you. Now at this recipe is brilliant to get the kids involved so they really enjoyed helping me measure out the ingredients poor the you know flower into the mix and i found my four year old eating quite a bit of the battle helping us up to the pine poop so there was a lot of eating going on rather than helping me make cupcakes but that's fine. It's all part of the experience and they enjoy so. That's the main thing and i really enjoyed bonding with them. Over this recipes though without further ado so what do you need to put the flour sugar baking powder and the assault with the dairy free spread in a free standing electric mixer using the pedal attachment of us a electric one of those hand and held beaters. You want to use the whisk attachments and then you want you beat it together. You find that it makes this sandy consistency consi type final product and then you add all of the wet ingredients including the egg and the coconut milk and the vanilla extract and once that's all combined it so easy you just spoon out into a twelve hole muffin tray. You obviously want to pop in some pay cases into the muffin hose or i was thinking. Actually this is quite a sweet recipes. You could get one of although silicon many cupcake trays that would be quite useful if you want to make them into really small mini cupcakes up case otherwise the regular standard twelve inch hole or twelve whole cupcake trays will do the job perfectly fine aziz spoon it all in until it's about two thirds full then you add the chopped up pieces of pie brunell. I thought we talked it up reasonably okay okay but i did think that for my two year old maybe smaller even smaller pieces would have been helpful again. See the pictures of how big is drop them in the corresponding block bowls so once that was all poured into muffing trays it just meant enjoy oven that was preheated at one hundred seventy degrees celsius and it was in there about twenty minutes twenty twenty five minutes and once it was cool. We just talked it up with the coconut frosting and i use some desiccated coconut to decorate and it was delicious. It did stay well in the fridge review days as well. I did find that it was it was quite a heavy textured. I dish but it was very moist. My wainscott were little bit. Ordinary founded used up most of the coconut cream from the ten so although although the recipe says one hundred twenty miles. I think i used doubled that in fairness for the rest we it was quite moist so oh you can't use a bit more of the coconut cream if you want to. It gives you the really nice tropical flavor and i loved it. I would very happily make thank this again. Perhaps with a bit less sugar the next time if it's just for you know a week baking with the kids but i love the fact that it has fruit in it and if you want to you could always use the cocoa super for the kids because that would be calcium forty five bye and that would be a really nice way of making the getting your child's daily calcium intake as well and when you make the frosting thing i would use oatley clem fresh. I love that product is also calcium
"goethe" Discussed on Small Doses
"But one of the things we used to talk about is. You know why can't people put themselves together? I came from this, I was able to do and I say to her, I said, you know, the thing is I, I didn't have to build myself up from anything. Right. I came from a great family, gray background, and people constantly funnel in a steam, urging me and you know that was my world. I can only imagine that the people that are that come from a bad situation. Right. And who are able to come out of the situation how extraordinary they are right? Because there's a psychological warfare set. They have to overcome. Yes. So while I understand that person that's down in the gutter they can't get up the gutter 'cause they mind just care, and this, and so we really need a super applaud the person as able to do s just because you can't get out that good because you can't see no way doesn't mean I got the fuck with you doesn't mean I have to get down the gutter with you. Right. And that's what I've been doing basically because. But that's the kindness and I feel like we misinterpret are, are worth as kindness and compassion. And we start looking at things and saying, well. Maybe I should step down into that space because who the hell am I think I'm above, or, you know, who the hell am I to think I'm better than and it's not that you're better than is simply just like I don't want. I don't want that on me. It's too many black women that do that. We have selfless love.

Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria Last Year May Have Been Staged
"Credulity spawned to what a some observers have observed have inferred from this document namely that the chemical weapons attack in Douma nastier may have been staged a by the rebels has there been any precedent for that kind of staging by the rebels anywhere in Syria and can this reasonably be inferred from that document leaked document. Well, first of all, the first really serious chemically talking series in two thousand thirteen nothing sarin in Goethe NASCAR outskirts of Damascus now at that point, the Russians invasive pulses, they Syrian regime still to claiming false flags. The rebels were pretending to. Carry out chemical attacks and blaming the regime. What we have in connection with this latest one is that the fact finding mission cold on a number of international experts. They said the three different experts.

There's nothing much detail about how he did it, but it saves the T contact of universities who gave guidance on how to compute modeling and the, the report kind of implies that it was the model was done internally by Henderson, pops the people, but he's not absolutely clear. Basically. So basically very very technical area. So it's very difficult for outsiders to judge particularly as neither the official report, No, MR Henderson's goes into any real detail about how they ride their calculations. So do
Indians vote in final phase of grueling national election
"Reagan, the final phase of voting in India's six week long general election is taking place with fifty nine seats at stake in eight. States. One seat is currently held by the prime minister Narendra Modi.

One of the most heavily contested here in India were almost seventy percent turnout in the six phases. So far, more people voting than in any other election since independence it shows you whatever way election, Goethe, people believe in
Supply demands: Yemen peace talks
"Today representatives of warring sides in the conflict in Yemen are due to meet in Jordan for the latest round of talks aimed at ending the violence. They come as Yemen's war stretches into its fifth year. Across the country. The rebel group known as the who 'this is battling the forces of a western backed government that governments also supported by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The people of the world's poorest country have suffered extrordinary famine and disease as the violence has dragged on at the end of last year. There came a whisper of hope as the United Nations secretary general until Goethe's announced an agreement between any factions that were meeting in Sweden, Sealy hope. That's we are living the beginning of the end of one of the biggest tragedies of the twenty first century the conflict in Yemen. The deal focused on ending standoff between who these and government forces at the vital port city of data. And it is my belief. That's the question of day. There was the make or break. But the agreement didn't seem to herald much of a breakthrough. Has seen issue number to start calm agreement. We didn't feel that was major change Dalia cost. Him is Yemen. Humanitarian who works in data. She spoke to journalists in London earlier this year. The only thing that changed was the bombardment stopped inside the city itself. The fighting continues to happen outside the city and the frontlines continue to shift. The humanitarian situation is just getting worse and worse physically any. Today's talks are part of an effort to break the deadlock. Today. Jordan, the derails and the Yemeni government are sitting down. And this is really an effort to consolidate a ceasefire agreement that was reached last year. But that what they never really took effect March McShane are Middle East editor one of the biggest parts of that agreement was meant to be a pullout of the rebels from the main port of data, and they did not actually pull out. So part of the focus of today's talks is not only to make sure that pullout is actually happening, but also figure out how to share revenues from the port of data, and that might seem like a small thing. But it's actually quite important. The rebels control the bulk of the population areas in Yemen, and in those areas people have not been paid salaries for years, and the thought is if that if you can start to get some revenue from the port, and then spread that revenue around it will ease the economic crisis in Yemen. But but why data why is that so important so up to eighty percent of imports and aid a pass through data, and the rebels have controlled the port on the ground at see the coalition that by Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, they control. The parents is for ships to come in. And the problem with that is the coalition has been using this power to really cut off the north in the areas of Yemen controlled by the who tease cut them off economically and really strangled them. And so do you think the the meeting today represents the chance for some progress on this? I mean after a an agreement that's stalled for months. I mean, there is so much distrust on all sides you want to be optimistic, but you wanted to be optimistic back in December. When all the stuff was agreed initially, and what happened then was you know, the these kind of faked a pullout they handed over power over the port to the guard and police forces that were basically just aligned with them. So they basically just handed power back to themselves in other uniforms. So I'm not terribly optimistic about this. I think it's just really hard to be optimistic about Yemen in general the reason to be a bit more optimistic. This time is that the UN is overseeing this pullout. And so far they say it's all going to plan at the same time. You have government officials who disagree with them Cessna. So the UN is mediating these talks, but but who are the real power roofers here who has to be convinced who's who's working from the sidelines. So this is a really difficult thing about Yemen at the talks in Jordan, you have the rebels you have the government. But that's not nearly all the players who are battling in the country the offensive last year on her that it was led by the marauders and they're using forces Salafist forces their line with secessionists in the south their partner with Saudi Arabia. Saudi arabia. Meanwhile, partnered with local Islamists. There's also the forces that are loyal to the former president Elliott Dila Sala there were previously along with the who 'this that alliance broke up in that the end of two thousand seventeen there now aligned loosely with the Maradas. So it's it's a bit of a mess in a bit of a Patrick, and you have she you have a lot of the other forces who aren't part of the talks in Jordan feeling quite left out will end, and you mention Saudi Arabia a couple of times. Amid the patchwork and Saudi is and turn backed by America, where talk of this humanitarian mess seems to be sort of increasing recently. Yeah. Yeah. So in April of the Senate and the house voted to end American support for the war in Yemen. And it's an issue that seems to come up whenever sort of America wants to take a shot at Saudi Arabia in particular. Now, Donald Trump really values the relationship with Saudi Arabia's. So he he vetoed the resolution that was meant to end America's support. And I think you'll continue to veto any efforts that are that are meant to cut America's support for the war in Yemen. I mean, it's an issue in America that doesn't really resonate. You know, the war in Yemen is also often called the forgotten war. And I think that that's really true in America. And earlier this week Saudi Arabia said that some of its ships had been damaged by an attack. Is there any connection with with any of this? It's all quite murky right now. You have reports from American officials who are figuring on. But doing so anonymously in their speculation that could be Orion proxies at the same time. You have a reports that the who 'these are attacking Saudi installations again, it's not clear if that's related at all to these ship attacks. But it's the type of thing that gets you quite nervous because you have you now have hawks to the controlling policy in America, and the Ron and they're looking for publications and Yemen sort of plays into this. I mean, certainly America in is invoking Yemen as part of its anti Iran campaign. So, you know, an attack by proxy on some ships in the strait over moose might be the exact type of thing that leads to a bigger war. Roger thank you very much for joining us.
No church again in Sri Lanka
"For the second weekend in a row. There will be no church services in Sri Lanka, this is because of fears of more attacks like the Easter suicide bombings that were blamed on his Llamas extremists more than two hundred and fifty people were killed as NPR's. Michael Sullivan reports from Colombo many Sri Lanka's are still wondering how such a thing could happen. Sri Lanka knows war and suicide bombings, its decades-long conflict between ethnic Thomas separatists, and the majority Sinhalese government left more than one hundred thousand did a war that ended ten years ago this month. Now, the peace has been shattered by the bombings linked to the Islamic state. So yucca now is caught up in this global wall political analyst, David Young Goethe Thome awful several decades, and they'll this brief interregnum and over the Bechtel living with Kroll after the war ended in. Two thousand nine says horrendous Vidana gave the bundle Nike center for international studies. Sri Lanka's, political leaders may have paid too much attention to the country's place in geopolitical rivalries in the Indian Ocean and too little on what was happening at home. You clearly see the return of foreign fighters coming from Syria towards the issue and decisions was a clear signal of polarization Lankan society to the right, and to certainly slimy groups becoming one more allies. So I think these things that we lost focus on and there were people who exploited that lack of focus. All. Like this, man. The fiery preacher around Husham? Police say was the leader of last month's bombings. One of two men killed in the suicide attack at the Shangri LA hotel in Colombo. In videos like this one he rails against nonbelievers. Religious leaders say repeatedly warned thirties about sovereign in his message of hate to no avail. But it wasn't the only one preaching hate religious hardliners and the Buddhist majority community. Here have conducted a campaign against the Muslim minority for years, including anti-muslim riots in two thousand fourteen and again last year, it was complete impunity for these attacks mob swept through was the Maria's in burn people out. Absolutely, no one has been prosecuted for any of this. Alan Keenan issue Lanka project director for the International Crisis Group in London. And so clearly that is changed the mood within the Muslim community. They feel under siege. They feel unprotected and the government has done very little to sway those fears or to respond to the threat. None of this Canaan says justifies the Easter attacks, and it may not have directly contributed to them. It's hard to think that it hasn't made it more likely that some small number of Muslims feeling so alienated and feeling angry might be more susceptible to extremely radical jihadi. Ideologies like I s. Two of the bombers brothers, the sons of a wealthy spice merchant lived here in the affluent neighborhood of demagoguing where a twenty four year old grad student, a Muslim neighbor from a few doors down is still trying to get her head around it. They had everything they had money. They had all developed they needed educated. So I asked my mum. Why do you think they did this? What was wrong with them? She's angry at them for taking life and for making her wary of leaving the house since the Easter attacks. She doesn't want her name used because she's afraid and she was shocked to see what some of schoolmates have been saying about was on social media since the attacks. No, I'm really scared to even step out of this Lynn with my national identity card, which has this address because you think you will be branded. Yes. Because I think I'd be branded used to be so proud, but not anymore the civil war here ended. She says. But now now she too. Sri Lanka is part of something much bigger. And that scares her even
