Documentary Explores Emancipating From Foster Care System
"Some some point, point, older older kids kids in in foster foster care care become unadoptable. There are three factors at play. How the foster care system seize the child, how potential parents see the child and what the child wants in a new documentary called UN Adopted No Elena interviews, kids who were in this position. It's a position that he was in. Not that long ago. In one scene, and I asked his lawyer when his caseworker changed his status to long term foster care. Long term Foster cares with the system cause it when they stop trying to get two adopted Instead, the plan is that your age out of the system this looks like 2007 is when it moved over from a plant of adoption. Think you might have been 11. Yeah, you were 11 at that point. It means I was in Six rained on, says one reason older foster kids don't get adopted is that they come with some baggage really, or perceived its no surprise that every team comes with another teen angst and all of the Joys of being a team. But like also, I think most families don't want like this kid is forever gonna want to know about his biological family or her biological family, you know? And I think it could be a little bit intimidating, or it could seem as if That family is competing. I think most people don't want to find out or they don't possibly want to get hurt. In the documentary. We also meet a teenage girl named Sequoyah, who is incredibly honest about how badly she wants to be adopted. And at one point, she says, something so striking trying to be a part of their family the first few months. Was really hard because I had to figure out how they worked. Spoke. Let their minutes were how to talk to then this's a teenage girl who You would expect to be the one who has moods herself that adults have to get used to. And instead, she's saying I need to get used to their moods. The idea that teenagers view adoptive parents as people they have to impress. There is also something really telling and really sad about that, too. I think for Sequoia. Like so many other foster you there at emotional crossroads and They're confronted with what may be the most important decision of their lives, whether to reunify with their biological family of possible which in her case is not Or opt into extended care. Or the third choice to pursue a forever family. And she is very keen on getting a forever family. She, at one point says she does not even know if her mother is alive. And if she is, Sequoia says, Well, good for her. If she's not. I wouldn't be surprised. Um How frequent isn't for kids in the foster care system to be so alienated from their parents that their attitude is? I don't know if this person is alive or dead. I don't want them to be dead. But if they are okay. The foster care system definitely does. Desensitize people. You know, in another NPR story I did I mentioned there's like little to no emotion. Kids often mirror their role models. And if you have role models, a k a. The social workers and judges, lawyers, etcetera being so gray with them then You know you're going to get the same results. You mentioned this NPR story that you did, for all things considered a few years ago, an award winning story in which you tape part of your own courtroom hearing and the thing that stood out to me. Maybe because my name is Noel is that the judge who had dealt with your case for a while called, you know. And you corrected her and said, Actually, it's no well and then you note. The frustration of my fate is in this judge's hands, and she doesn't even know how to pronounce my name or has forgotten how to pronounce me. Yeah, um I thought that was so shocking because she's been on my case for so long, you know, and she has My brother on her caseload as well. So my name you know, would bleed into his case file. So for something so simple as a name. Is really bad. And Ms Schwartz, if you're listening, I think we should have a sit down, talk and reflect from that because I think simple things like that can get corrected and they should be. There seems to be a push. To instead of taking Children away from their parents and putting them in foster care to leave them with their parents if they're not in immediate danger and helped the parents improve. You at the end of the documentary make clear that you are in touch with your biological family and seem happy about that. You also have nothing ill or bad to say about the foster family with whom you spent your older years. You're older, teenage years. Do you wish that you had been left with your biological family and that they had gotten support? Or do you think it was the right move to take you out of their care and put you into foster care? I shouldn't be a CZ well off a Zai am and I don't know if that's the survivor's guilt talking. But I've had to endure so much. And I don't You know, Foster care is supposed to be temporary, and it wasn't temporary. I was bouncing home to home. I was in multiple families, and it did take an emotional toll. I'm not going to say that it didn't I just think I had The willpower to, you know, push through and I still don't know. What the answer would be, But I would say, you know, I don't want to say this because I don't want it. Let the system win. Think they won, you know, but I would rather not have gotten adopted or reunify with my biological family because I did that on my own terms. I reunified with my bio family. I accepted my Foster family as my chosen family. But I did that, not the system. So I don't want to say one way or the other and think the system one because they didn't They have a bigger job to do. Noel and Naya. He's the co producer of the new documentary UN Adopted, which is now on the arts YouTube channel.

Stumbling block: the battle over WeChat
"A new battle is shaping up in the legal wrangles around. Social Media APPS operating in. America. The trump administration's attempt to block we chat and Tiktok from American APP. Stores was overturned by a federal judge on Sunday. Yesterday, America's Commerce Department said it would appeal. The wildly popular video sharing Tiktok has been the subject of jockeying from American firms for ownership after President Donald Trump said he would ban it unless CEOS was agreed. It can't be controlled for security reasons by China too big too. Invasive and it can't be and here's the deal I don't mind if whether it's Microsoft or somebody else a big company secure company, very, very American company by it. That seemed to be solved on Saturday when he approved a deal involving Oracle and Walmart. But that still left, we chat a platform with a huge following in China and among the Chinese diaspora if you as battling TV use of which had that would ask. For examples, I can use the. In. The US Li Tang is Chinese but lives in New York Bats. The hub was blocking China's. Savings so The government binding dvd from using the reach hats not means my connection with China is totally being cut off. The administration's wish to block it entirely now lies with the courts, but that battle will be very different from the one over Tiktok. This was going to cripple these we just in America for about three and a half million Chinese Americans who the majority of its users and the California judge has sort of paused this in order to examine. Around freedom of speech in doing this, how Hudson is the economists Asia Technology correspondent. The ruling kind of acknowledges that while there may be national security questions, it doesn't appear immediately that Aban is the only way to deal with those questions and the ban does appear to impinge upon the freedom of speech of those Chinese Americans, and so it's kind of a we're gonNA take a moment here in to check how legal this is and that makes sense because nothing like this has ever happened before. So in in what way What what are the rights that are that are under threat here? Well, it's pretty broad brush. We shot is kind of everything up and both in mainland China and and in America people, use it, use it for loads of different things they use to send money to their families. They use it obviously to communicate to the most obvious analog. There is something like what's up but also has personal finances. It has news it's kind of like. A little internet in a box and for a lot of people that's the whole Internet, and so that's why cutting it off is such a risky thing and yet the fact that it's sort of all of the Internet in a single APP is particularly important in China where not only are other services. Particularly Western services blocked Yukon download them from APP stores in China, things like twitter and facebook and what's up, but the communication on we. Chat itself is censored according to the Chinese government sort of prescriptions and so in a way, this freedom of speech argument is actually a question of whose freedom of speech you know do we want Americans to be free from Chinese censorship or do we want them to be free to use a service that they want to use? It's a it's a difficult question and so on. What grounds is the trump administration trying to ban it. Well, the stated reasoning is that we chat presents a national security risk to America and to American people. As with Tiktok the idea is that data about American sort of intimate data communication with their families. Businesses can be harvested through we chat and sent back to the Chinese government for various purposes. The other concern is that we got sensors conversations on its APP and both of these have grounds. In fact there there's research from the group. Called the citizen's lobby in Toronto which does showed that we chat is censoring various kinds of communication, not just in mainland China but all around the world for its extra China, which users. But there's a more skeptical angle to this on the government's motivation, which is that being tough on China looks good for trump in the run-up to an election and it puts Joe Biden in a corner to sort of force him to take position on closeness with China. To how does the discussion around we chat fit into the the rather longer running one about Tiktok the difference between the two of them is that TIKTOK has American investors tiktok has its roots in the acquisition of an American company, and so that gives America sort of jurisdiction over to talk because America's always had control over investment in the United States, and that's the kind of starting point for the examination of Tiktok and the administration's talk on talk we chat doesn't have that. We chat doesn't have any American acquisitions that formed it. It's a much older piece of technology and it's much more sort of purely Chinese. So the only way that the administration has to attack tiktok is through this very unusual executive order that resulted in a list of transactions from the Department of Commerce. That again important to remember doesn't have a precedent and so you know when we're looking at what this the results of this temporary stay from the judge in California will be. It's very hard to say because nothing like this is awesome before. So in in that regard, the long run outcome of this won't be the kind of division and selling jockeying that we've seen about Tiktok no, there's no latitude for that. I mean the fact is as well that we chats three point five, million users in America doesn't represent like gigantic sort of social media growth opportunity that tiktok one, hundred, million users, a brand new APP that you know all the kids. Are On that's a much more exciting proposition for companies like Oracle at Walmart that are you know supposed to be taking stakes in? TIKTOK. But the other way in which these two things are joined up is in the American government's increasing efforts to control the kinds of things that happened on the Internet and this isn't just about versus China America versus China is kind of catalyzing a much much bigger discussion about what happens online and who gets to be in charge of that. But all of this seems to be getting away from the you know free on splintered on almost entirely unregulated Internet that America pioneered. Yeah. It undeniably is is just a factual observation to say that this source of activity very top down very directly political. You know trumped basically in charge of these things and and a group of bliscoll allies starts to look. A lot like the way that China does business online and I guess that's not necessarily a problem at Priori. But it's definitely a change in the way that America does its business and it is important to remember that it's not like America. Star should this to China has not allowed loads of different American services in for a very long time and you know one. Potential. Outcome of this is that you'll see the people who really need these services using them sort of illicitly. So you start to get a kind of grey market for digital services where your ability to route around the controls that your government puts on. You dictate your ability to access the services you need, and that's probably a bad thing. Hell, thanks very much for your time. Thank you Jason.
Talking Apple's announcements with Phandroid, Nick Gray
"I get the irony of having the editor in chief of Android come on to talk about the apple event. Hey I watched it and let's do this. Okay. I'm not an apple fan boy I can still appreciate good products right? Same same. I used to work in android authority and every time every time I put out a even the slightest thing about an iphone thought that I was a traitor and I was like guys like. I'm allowed to carry more than one phone at any time. So here's the thing. First of all got to give the UPS to help apple. Granted, they have the backing of their partners like Pixar, for example, to make what is a very good looking presentation as far as the quarantine level. Kovin affected trade shows and events and tech shows are concerned I. You know you could. You could expect apple to put put on a good show. It was pretty good granted like with any apple event I kind of not really does off but obviously, like eventually they get into the weeds with their products and you just kind of like okay. Cool. You're you're updating all the IPADS. Dating. All of the Appalachians and whatnot but the whole fact that an iphone twelve was not part of this were you surprised I know people were people were not I was not surprised based off of they set in their last earnings call that the IPHONE would not be coming until. October. So I'll look I mean they they clearly said it wasn't coming and a lot of people seem to have missed that or forgot that Nah and they didn't even they even sent out a reminder once once the event was announced. That no he said the IPHONES. Not Coming till October. and so a lot of people kinda miss that and so that was the speculation of what are they going to announce for a lot of people because some people knew that they weren't announcing the new iphone. So when they sent out the invitation with that weird, it was the apple logo but. Yeah like circling and Tom Whatever I mean. We were speculating that a new apple watch was going to be coming and likely some IPAD information So yeah, I mean that's basically it will. We got the new IPADS and. The. New Apple Watch is because now we have what is the series six is the new one and then the Apple Watch s e. so just like the iphone se we have an apple watch se which is A. I don't WanNa say dumbed down version of the watch because. It's still an incredible piece of Gadgetry but it doesn't have some of the sensors that the main watch has making it useful for somebody who's wanting an apple watch for all of the health and fitness benefits that you can track with the device, but it's probably something more geared towards. A cheaper watch for you know your kids are family members who may not be into fitness tracking you know I would even argue like I agree with you there, but I would even add on top of that. When you put the letters s e on anything apple. I get interested. Like I'll just speak from personal experience because like. If I were to choose if I have no other like knowing that I have other things like my own cameras and my own gaming consoles and stuff like that. If my smartphone was not the center of my universe, then something like a pixel for a which literally I you and and or an iphone se those were the perfect choices for me like I'm actually into. dumbing not dumbing down, you said dumbing down but like slimming my smartphone experience for a better price and they're doing it with smart watches and your Indiapol- ecosystem. I'm actually kind of impressed. Yeah. It is a very, very impressive device and it comes with and Lt version as well which pairs with their new family, what they call it the family sink plan now. Now, you do not need to have it's not a one to one match between a a watch and a smartphone you can connect multiple watches to a single smartphone. So that, you can get on Apple Watch for your children. And also your aging parents so that you can have location tracking and communications with them and fall detection and accident detection. Features built in and pair that with a single device rather than having to have multiple iphones in order to pair that with which makes the Apple Watch. Probably, the first gadget that most parents are going to buy for their children that are not smartphone age ready yet. Yeah. Indeed, and because there's this huge marquette of children friendly watches that are connected that they can make phone calls that they came message their parents or a select small group of people and individuals, and most of those costs. One, hundred, ninety, nine to three, hundred dollars, and all of them have to be paired with a ten dollars a month service plan through your carrier. And just to be clear, the pairing of these devices must be paired with the L. T. E. or this the connected version not just the WIFI version. Yeah, Mindy. So you do have that little bit extra and you do have that monthly subscription that you're gonNA have to pony up for yeah,

Can I use other people's recipes for my ebook for children?
"Chris, Calloway from Sydney Australia. I be listening to your show right from the beginning our unemployed. I did work in between I'm unemployed. Now again, I've tried several side hustles over the years I haven't managed to monetize. Miss yet I've tried a book club and Dane Grip I, had some success. I've started a youtube channel Foodie phonics, lessons, children, and have a few thought of his. What most recently have self published an evil children. My question is am I, able to use recipes that I find on the intimate and rename them for use in book at the back so that I can use the link for readers to contact me and the floor to your response to them. Thanks for gration cheese. Hey, thank you so much for listening. Thank you for calling in and good work on continuing to try different stuff. It takes a while and then that's that's okay. I love the idea of the Youtube Channel for food phonics lessons. Let's talk about your question. So can you use other people's recipes essentially and kind of rename them a bit It's a bit of a grey area because. A lot of recipes are are very common here. So there's not a lot of difference between let's say some standard recipes. Okay. But other recipes are created by chef. And there is proprietary work that goes into that. So the best safest answer is that you would need to contact the recipes author or creator for permission to use it in this way unless it's clearly something that is in the public domain. Okay now, that said, a lot of recipes as I mentioned are pretty simple. Okay. Are Pretty simple are pretty common or just handed down over the years and such. So if you're making souffles or castle as or something that's either complicated or somewhat unique, I was trying to think like what is unique to Australia and I did some googling and I read about fairy kick which I don't know a lot about even though I have been to Australia many times and love that country but very cake because the thing Australia. So anything that is complicated or somewhat unique. Where a chef is clearly create that recipe and that is something you definitely shouldn't borrow like that belongs to them however since so many recipes are rudimentary and copied over and over for those I think you'd be okay with putting your own twist on it and renaming it as you suggest except perhaps calicut half cows magical mackin sheep's. Or. farm-to-table Foodie phonics fruit salad I'm just providing some names here feel free to borrow these. You can still these or Foodie phonics vary bread maybe it's actually very bread not very kick now that I'm thinking about this more but whatever it is very bread you call it Cudi phonics ferry bread, and perhaps tweak the recipe a little bit i. think that's okay. That's a little bit different than just wholesale. Copying recipe somewhere and putting it in your own yearbook.

Apple's most popular ipad Aka the least expensive one was updated to it's eight iterating on Tuesday. Running through the hardware ipad is powered by twelve bionic that brings the neural engine to the entry ipad for the first time according to the company. got a forty percent faster CPU than the IPAD I bought last year. Go me. Man Twice, the graphics capability yesterday me. Apple says all that makes the entry level ipad up to two times faster than the top selling windows laptop up to three times faster than the top selling android tablet and up to six times faster than the top selling chromebook. Now if you're not looking to save or if you're looking for a splash of color, apple introduced a new IPAD air on Tuesday. Or a few of them if you count the multiple finishes available.

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad
"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

His wife, a medical doctor and he recruited his friend Anderson of JETHRO. Tull fame to contribute vocals and flute from his home where he was quarantining in London. The song is titled We say Thank You the proceeds for the song and video are being donated to the UN covert Nineteen Relief Fund. I caught up with Leslie Van Dokie on the phone. Let's talk briefly about. Hedge Tack We say thank you which is how I know about you. Which you recorded as a tribute to the healthcare workers in the front line workers during the coronavirus, which I'm sorry to say at this point still exists in the world and the future remains uncertain How did it come about? Personal, it was actually during the holiday season where I perceived a lot of calls from China. My Chinese mutual friends were warning you know something horrible is is going to happen to the road and they were just.

Against me for humanity and for and for these. Days and and.

We should donate This monster to the people who are really suffering and really out there doing the offend tastic job Even if the world is much slower but the turns around and the day and I'm really thankful for each and everyone in to my life, of course.

"For grownups. My name is Michael Harrison. It's my privilege to serve as anchor the program it's an ensemble chauvet lots of good people involved it's host and it's founder is Carol Marks. Carol marks is one of America's leading experts on upper demographic issues. And she's a champion in the battle against ageism. Let's kick the program off now. With Carol Marks Conversation with Dr Kelly harding author of the book the Rabbit Effect Live longer happier and healthier with the groundbreaking science of kindness. Dr Harding is an assistant professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center. She's a diplomat of the American board of Psychiatry and neurology as well as voted in the specialty of psychosomatic. That's mind body medicine so works in the emergency room at New York Presbyterian Hospital and now appears on a touch of grey now. I want to talk about medical creating because It was through at the shoes. Mysteriously saw patients Salaman serious diagnoses and Some were How but we still healthy and then there were those who had unpleasant facilitating condition. No one could find a Pacific cardboard but the sudden you came across a accident. How insight about the strings phenomenon? When nineteen seventy there which is teddy of white genetically identical rabbit. So what was the study? Just you do. What would you as sell? And what enable just one group of rabbits remain healthy despite an unhealthy diet amazing out. Well well thank you and also I just wanted to thank you know. I'm so delighted to be here and to to be with you and to be having this conversation. So thank you so much for hosting it. And yes I'd be delighted to tell you about the rabbit and and it's true because you know as a physician I really have become interested in in trying to figure out how people defy their diagnoses and sometimes quite serious diagnoses and live longer and better than necessarily we might expect from the diagnosis alone. And so you know it was sort of that. Mystery that led me to the rabbits and so with a rabbits was in back in the late nineteen seventies. There was this question about how you know. Diet affected heart health. And so you know. A very basic science study was being done where virtually genetically identical rabbits were given the same high-fat Diet and what the researchers found is that one rabbit unexpectedly had far better health outcomes and the other rabbits like sixty percents that are and so with that They sort of questioned like what was going on with those rats. They thought there was something wrong. With the study that everything checked out and it turned out that all the rabbits that did better were under the same care of the same researcher and she ended up being a particularly kind caring individuals who wasn't just feeding the rabbits their cable. She was picking them up. She was telling them she was talking to them. She's basically getting them loving kindness and so much to the researchers credit and this led by Dr Robert Near Him. Who's a lovely person He he repeated the study very tightly controlled conditions and they got the exact same results and they coached it in a very prestigious journal Science but what was so groundbreaking about the study as it was really one of the first to show that our social environment and how we're treated can make a big difference on our biology or on in this case it was the rabbits. Balaji but it turns out there's now decades of data to show that this is the case and in it's so profound that I felt like I had to get the word out and I wrote a book called the Rabbit because of it and you know I want to ask you In doing research what gauge lot more has been done? What have you found that showed that while quality medical care subsequently critical to all patients access to it accounts for only ten to twenty percent of patients health problems being improved social world so important. I think that that was a crucial finding. Oh my gosh so this was so I name to me as the doctor because you know obviously I've invested many many years and studying medical care and and I it's a really important thing for every single human being. They have access to quality medical care that being said it is pretty shocking that it it you know the the study suggests that it only accounts for about ten to twenty percent of our overall health and that's important ten to twenty percent but you know sort of like what is in the rest of this you know eighty to ninety percent so to what we know is you know genes do play a role but not as much as we saw because it turns out you know and this is where the science gets really cool is that it turns out that our social vermin is also influencing how our genes are expressed. And that's a that's just really exciting area and science known as epigenetics and that field is really taking off and I think what's particularly exciting about it is that it shows that we actually have far more influence over our health than we realize and how we fair with you know illnesses that may crop up and that makes us feel so much better that we do have this power that we can use it now. You talk a lot about in your book and I never thought that it that it was that van important. I knew I know that being only it's not a good thing but I never knew till I. I read your book. How it's virtually it can affect one's health and and you for now very steady until chronic loneliness can be as unhealthy as smoking a pack of cigarettes. J. I mean that's unbelievable. Yeah it's actually It's it's striking and that was part of the reason that I felt. It was really important to call attention to some of the state. I think you know when most of us think about how we tend to think about diet exercise sleep and our trips to the doctor but in fact our our connection to other people is also a critical part of ourselves. So you know. It's not just going to the gym. It's who are you going to the WHIZ or You know we also WanNa think about socializing as a important part of our health is getting some exercise. Some physical activity and during the day so So the evidence shows that you know feeling chronically. Lonely is as significant a risk for help as you know smoking may the it's often said fifteen cigarettes a day which is about a pack You know heavy alcohol use Even high blood pressure even obesity is less of a risk than feeling chronically. Lonely so what that means is that we need to attend to that part of our lives and really try to reach out and do what we can to connect with other people and that's GonNa look different for every single person with what it's with their life so you know it may mean you know volunteering at may mean you're taking a class at may mean even just talking with your neighbor every little bit counts or during the day when we go to the grocery store making sure we're making eye contact connecting with a person who were getting changed from you know or all these different moments we just want to be mindful and do what we can to sort of reach out and connect with the people that us in our daily lives for. You are so right now. It seems to me if reading a book that perhaps years top of the list of hidden factors for four health is something we year long about and that stress. I was surprised to learn that. The strongest predictor ever Persians deaths from heart disease is in cholesterol high blood pressure. So what is it well? So there's this fascinating data and decades. They actually showing how our workplaces and our environment that we don't necessarily think of and I call them. They hit in factors of health actually had a tremendous influence on it to on our health so and particularly our heart health. So Stresses Part of how things are mediated. And stresses just a part of life so a big part of it is sort of. How are we managing and dealing with things that come up that are stressful during the day? What kind of support do we have in place to offset the inevitable stresses that happen and You know a big piece of that for probably many of your listeners is our workplaces and you know thinking about how we can make our workplaces. More supportive is really important and I think is really fascinating about this. Research is actually workplaces. That are supportive actually performed better. They have better results. People take less sick days. You bless medical care You know people. When are able to use the parts of their brain where creative thinking happens when they feel supported and valued as human beings. You know for all the listeners out there for all the different areas of your life it would be important to think about. How can I support the person across from me? How can I support myself?

I was amazed to her that even the protective caps that we have. Rta which had called telomeres which are important because they can lead longer. Life can be shortened by stressed. I was shocked by that. I mean this is yes. This is where the science get so exciting and I feel like You know that was for me. Part of the great joy in writing the rabbit effect with that. It's you know decades of public health data and then simultaneously all this really cutting science. It's coming together to show how our social world gets a nurse. So we know about epigenetics is one area of that and then a piece of that is what this whole field is research which has been led in part by Dr Elizabeth Blackburn and at least Apple Outta ucsf in San Francisco And what's so exciting about a lot of the work that their team is doing and the others are doing is showing that our social world is. Actually you know can help us prolong our life so so just to be come back to the basics is a two and there's a little bit at the end of DNA that are almost like a the ends of shoelaces. That help protect the shoelace from frank and every time. The cell replicates the the ends get shorter and shorter. But there's an enzyme that can actually help prolong those -til Mir's and the thing. That's so interesting about it. As it turns out things like having a life purpose help prolong this feeling. There's help protect our overall health. Which is pretty amazing. Because I think for many of us you know and clinically something as a doctor. You see all the time that you know when people have something off in that. They're really striving for that very health protective for them. But it bad it's there's on a molecular level there's a protective factor as well and you also say that it's important Every day to express your gratitude about what you have and tell other people what you appreciate about.

They're moving fast. I'm moving slow so I started paying attention to my face and guesstimate my speed was somewhere between saunter and Mosey. Well this is different. I used to be a double time stepper. Now I'm a slow Lane Walker. When did this happen? Interesting thing about changes that come with maturing you either don't notice them at first because through so gradual or they just appear like that. Crick crack in your back. That wasn't there yesterday. And while we can't deny some changes we can work around and share with you one. I do myself when I look in the mirror.

"Continuing now with a touch of grey the talk. Show for GROWNUPS. I Michael Harrison in the anchor chair. Let's back to the conversation between the host of our show. Carol Marks and author Elise Marie Collins. She wrote the book Super Ager. You can look younger. Have more energy better memory and live a long and healthy life? Another thing about about support. Was You talked about Scientific Studies which I found fascinating and There have been studies Which are called the Blue Zone WH- Which really talks about This proportionate number of people who are hungry and over living an isolated fast his genu- where they an guessing in most of these spots people get an awful lot of walking and exercising with on difficult train and they also work very hard. So how in the world just a place in America Loma Linda in California get called and Blues Zone? Yeah I love that question because what what Loma Linda shows me is that Loma. Linda is play for seven seventh day. Adventists live in great proportion and they have selectively isolated themselves from the culture and that tells me that we could all do this. We could all groups that you know. We support ourselves in our health. So the seventh day adventist. They eat a plant based diet the exercise part of their Religion is exercise. Say always take the day off on Sundays and have family time. Have you know interconnection between generations? That's part of their religion. And so you know they're living within American culture which doesn't always uphold all these healthy values of taking the day off or you know eating more healthy diet and I mean a lot of people do exercise at that community support support. That's an important part of supervision so I think that the Little Melinda Lou zone shows us that it doesn't have to be in like the the mountains of Sardinia which is an island that's Very isolated all the other blue zones are isolated and people are living as though you know it was maybe a hundred years ago. So it's possible to live in the modern world envious breaker one thing that. I've really liked about your book that you spoke about when I really had thought about you. Know WE WANNA change our habits We need to be gentle with ourselves and US as always start with small steps. And why is that because you know Are Bad habits. We we want to change right away yeah yeah. That is the conundrum of habit. I think that most of us and I don't know where this comes from but we kind of have all or nothing thinking and with habits change. It's really become a science in the in the modern era but I think even ancient people ancient wisdom tells us that we need to take things on slowly and build incrementally so let's say You want to change your habit. Which is maybe drinking more water or you could start. You know very smallest maybe drinking half a glass and extra some extra water in the morning and just start that and then you start to build confidence because I think the confidence part is really important. If you set your sights too high for example exercise you know a lot of people say oh I'm GonNa you know suddenly run or walk. You know an hour day. Why NOT START FIVE MINUTES? Make it so easy. You can't say no so by starting small you build that confidence then you know. Oh I think that I can. I can up the ante. I can so a little bit further so I think the confidence is the important part about starting small. I couldn't agree more. And here's a important sending our time together wines down with is too late to turn around the aging process and I I love your example of how trees and their leaves can inspire our resilience. That's your example. Something I'll always remember. So what did you say yes I think that our bodies rejuvenate and also that's the connection to a deeper part of ourselves which I would call you know in any Indian tradition. It's called product or Life Force. And it's it's beyond physical. I think there's this kind of magical qualities that product evokes and when we think about that's where you know you don't have to be a meditative but you just quietly contemplate nature and that's a big part of our debate just like feeling connection and that connection seeds you and rejuvenate to and then that's when we have a ha moment we we start to feel so integrated than we. We know what next right action is so to speak well from now on when I look at trees I mean. I know vague. Get their leaves and then they lose them. And I've never thought much about that. But you know that show really. They have amazing resilience and can kind of Inspire US exactly. Yeah and that is something I learned from a yoga teacher. Who'S A hundred years? Old Dow poor some Lynch and she talks about the trees. That's where I learned it from and she's a hundred years old and she's still teaching Yoga. She dances and she's incredible. And so inspiring will finally if our listeners with once it gets your book elise as you can look younger have more energy better memory and live a long and healthy.

"By Lise Marie Collins so collins the warmest welcomes to attach of gray. Thank you thank you so much for having me now. My first question is about the title of Your Book. Super Eight yourself. How would you define the concept of what is super ager is? Yeah it's a very interesting question because there's not really a hard and fast definition. I think that super aging is in the eye of the beholder and I think that super eighteen has so much to do with your own connection to yourself and knowing who you are and often super agers accomplish great feats at older ages but I think just happened. Because they have they've they've learned they've save gained experience and knowledge throughout their life so for example Dorthy steel. She was elder in the movie. Black Panther and she didn't start asking till she was eighty eight years old but she had a feeling she was in touch with herself and she decided to start acting and she decided to act into a simple good at it. She got an agent and she ended up landing Parts in the highest grossing film of All Time Highs and you you know one of the things I liked about. That story was back that she had talked to her. Her granddaughter about getting an agent and her granddaughter had encouraged her. And so don't you think that Super Aj's Generally listen to what's going on with younger generation and that keeps some prestige and being curious about what's new interesting in the world. I know that's something I tried to do. Oh that is so right on yes because yes and yes I think. The connection between the generations is absolutely essential Even if you are you don't have children or grandchildren Some way connecting to younger people I know all the supervisors I almost all of them have You know they're always interested in what's happening now. They're not in there. They have the past but they're always looking to the future and that includes Young people and what they're doing and listen. That's reciprocal relationship yes. I'm glad you brought that up. Now you discuss in your book something. I often wondered about but didn't understand and that was Of A philosophy In called I for Veda which means the science in life and it is really the conventional Hindu system of medicine that was developed more than three thousand years ago so says we go through different stages so what are the stages that we go through Using this kind of conventional Hindu system of medicine I your visa and and how can they help us if we know what they are? Yes well I think it's helpful because it gives us a framework to understand the stages of life and I'm also a gerontologist which means I say aging and the Western system doesn't have anything similar. I think that your listeners will really benefit from understanding the stages in. Oh explain them so when we're a baby when we're born we're born in the earth stage of life and this stage is childhood through adolescence. So this is a time when we're becoming. You know grounded Institute for. That's why bonding is so important. During the stage then your teenager you go into the fire stays and that's why we have fiery rebellious teenagers. And it's spelt forming an identity. Its about ego you know. Sometimes we WANNA say ego was bad But this stage is is about developing that. That's an important part of development and that continues to fire stage until about each fifty and then the next stage in the air stage. And I'm I'm Kinda simplifying this but just so you understand that you want to overcomplicate the air stages all about wisdom and if you think of hair it's about connection we all share air be breathing the same air. If you think of being in the air we see the bigger picture we see the big view so see stages of life can inform us and help us realize. That can't really compare the air stage to the fire station. I think that's what happens with aging we think. Oh Asian is all about just falling apart but actually aging about caning this incredible new perspective and wisdom that if we If we embrace that we can live. Incredible Life Ray and if we go through as learn it in a different stages and even when it has a five. Regina here's is they can come through where you can come through it and be stronger better. And then each of us has our own sort of I would call it a palette of elements so it sounds like your kids. Were maybe a little bit more fiery which which can be a great trade if tim correctly. And then when you're a fire individual fina teenager can be even more sense and so we want to balance our own our own personality traits which which can have these elements of earth. Fire Air now As we get older we As older adults can you know certainly experienced physical changes can our sense of purpose? Change to new and more manageable goals. Can you give us an example? What they might be and can they be enter goals that we establish that's a great question They can be intervals and I think everybody has a different what I would call purpose in Japan. They use the word. Geeky guy and I liked that because purpose sometimes sounds very Like it has to be something that we do to the world that are our inner purpose could be something like loving our friends loving our family. It doesn't have to be you know I'm going to Clermont read or something like that. It's it's very internal and it can also be something that evolves throughout our lifetime. There is a man named the other way who he was an artist and an interesting man lifting. He's he's still alive and he's living in China and he always Had these artistic aspirations any kept pursuing them he didn't find successively with seventy nine years old when he became a model because his daughter just had his his picture on her cell phone and to working in a fast in house and someone saw the photo that actually the head designer. And Oh my God. We have to have the guy in in our fashion show and he said after he his catwalk went viral because he was bare shirt hid had the slowing silver gray hair and he just worked at he just you know moved his body and he said I have been spending my know. It took me six years to work to this point because he had been striving reading and he never gave up. But I think that's really important that we don't give up if we do have maybe an artistic vision or something. That's external. Those things do happen to super supervisors and you can also have inner goals. Like I WANNA be at peace with myself. I want to be eleven and friendly person in the world. That's the least. Marie Collins has written the book super ager have more energy better memory and live a long and healthy life. At least Marie Collins is instructing participants in a two year study on the effects of restorative yoga or stretching for Metabolic Syndrome.

"Coming up. We delve into whether the grays have become the alien alien race because they're real or not now back to the story the second half of the twentieth century the rate of UFO AFO sidings increased drastically and some of the most iconic ones featured the grays small humanoid aliens with enormous heads and is atop sinewy childlike bodies. They abducted Betty and Barney Hill. They were at Roswell. They had encounter after encounter with real real world writers who then recorded their experiences in books sold on nonfiction shelves across the world. But the grays have come to populate the human world even even more frequently as fictional characters across media from film and TV to advertisements to our Moji keyboards the greys are everywhere anywhere. What do AFO researchers want to know is if that's because they're real? There's no evidence to suggest that the first man to record gray cray like aliens in writing H. G. Wells believed they existed but he did call the first essay describing them a prophecy in one of his novels. Perhaps perhaps it really was a prophecy. Considering the fact that these same aliens went onto appear in many real life UFO sightings. But let's revisit that some of the major events in which the grays played a role and examine just how believable they were first. There was Barney and Betty hills abduction and it reportedly happened in nineteen sixty one but the hills didn't go public with their story until one thousand nine hundred sixty five right at the height of the UFO craze while they're story with its abduction element was fairly innovative. It's still fit into a broader. UFO Zeitgeist in Cold War paranoia. Plus Barney and betty were an interracial couple at a time when race relations were tents and rapidly changing. It was a stressful difficult period for for them as we concluded in our episodes on their story it seems most likely that their abduction narrative emerged out of these combined. freshers with the help of hypnosis have no service which is to say there were probably never abducted although they likely saw some kind of identified flying object in the mountains of New Hampshire in their episode. We gave their story a believability rating of three. Not Very high which is to say they likely never saw any aliens. Graze or otherwise Roswell is no different while it was an endlessly intriguing event full of fascinating accounts almost all of that testimony. Tony was given decades after the fact and most of it was second hand including the story of the still unnamed nurse who suggested to UFO researchers. Richer's that the aliens who crashed in New Mexico where grace in our episodes on the Roswell incident we gave the crash score of four on our believability scale which which again means that the nurse probably never saw the grays in fact she may never even have existed she could easily have been a creation of the man who relayed her stories to UFO researchers the testimony of the novelist Whitley Strieber who reportedly reportedly had personal experiences with the grays was never corroborated by any evidence likewise with the docu-dramas of French writer. And filmmaker Jimmy you you finally race Antilles Film Alien Autopsy which seemed at first to be remarkable evidence that the greys existed turned out to be fake so all of these real world sightings which lend the reality of the greys credibility aren't so credible but the question still remains remains. Why is this image of the grey aliens everywhere? If they're not real. There is another possibility. Let's go back to H. G. Wells for a moment. He wasn't only the first to write about the grays. He was one of the first to write about aliens at all icon. ICK works like his eighteen. Ninety eight war of the worlds influenced generation after generation of science fiction readers and writers because because at the time there wasn't much else to inspire them hence his title father of Science Fiction his cultural influence particularly on the idea of aliens is hard to underestimate by the time. Extraterrestrial sighting started picking up speed during the Cold War in the nineteen fifties and sixties. His writing had been shaping the fictional discourse around aliens for over fifty years. We've discussed some of the many sci fi stories influenced by H. G. Wells Orson Wells Nineteen thirty eight radio adaptation of the war of the worlds Steven. Spielberg's nineteen seventy seven close encounters of the third kind and these were far from carbon copies of h g wells work but they were participating in long lineage of storytelling that began with swells and develop from there spreading from the world of novels and movies to the IPHONES. emoji keyboard. Culture is funny. Any light that it's always characterized by memes following the original definition posited by evolutionary biologist. Richard Dawkins that is to say eh per dawkins definition it's full of eternally repeating images always varying slightly but in graining certain ideas into the very fabric of our society along the way and as we've seen throughout this show extraterrestrial sightings have long been tied to the ebbs and flows of cultural cultural anxieties and concerns. They've also long been tied to our storytelling. Something else we've seen throughout this show many alien sightings blend in fact with fiction or outright fiction with more fiction to create compelling narratives. This is all to say science fiction based storytelling highlighting the grays seeped into the broader cultural consciousness. It's influenced everything from film to Children's toys and it seems natural that it also started influencing fake alien sightings the fact that there's no particularly believable real world gray sightings actually supports. Is this idea. The grays have always it seems. been a story. They're still the question of why out of all the aliens H. G. Wells described. It was the grays that caught on but there may be an evolutionary reason for that the large I'd bigheaded. Small audie graze while admittedly creepy looking are nevertheless evocative of children and humans are evolutionary primed to find children children or anything childlike cute. In other words we see large eyes and a small body whether on puppy a baby or maybe an alien Leeann as attractive and adorable. Perhaps this attraction helped the image stick the cultural image so the alternative. The possibility to the idea that grazer real is that they are a deeply ingrained cultural icon one so deeply ingrained that it starts to feel real bill so deeply ingrained that when someone wants to lie about an alien sighting or even jobs through a few mental hoops to manufacture without meaning to ally. It's the grays that they reach for. It is a convincing solution but the fact does stand just like. There's some possibility that something something went down with Barney and Betty Hill and that something happened back in Roswell in nineteen forty seven. There's a possibility that the gray's really did ed pop down to visit Earth a few times just like H G wells prophesized after all if they did exist he would explain perfectly why this version of aliens caught on with other science fiction writers and the public alike perhaps. They're the most believable kind of aliens. Because on some level they're real that said we give the existence of the Gres a score of three out of ten on our believability scale with ten and being the most believable and one being very unlikely we assume that wells with his vivid rich imagination and his love of the strange would be on board and with that after all until the greys are disproven. There's always a possibility that they're out there. Just like with all heart art extraterrestrials. We're taking the show on hiatus after this episode but we won't stop thinking about all the unresolved unresolved threads the holes in the official stories and the bizarre testimony that we've seen while researching extraterrestrials. We've shot down plenty of wild stories that that simply didn't add up. George domke comes to mind among others. But we've also seen some instances that are much harder to rationalize away like the render some the incident in England one thousand nine hundred eighty or the shag harbour crash in Canada in nineteen sixty seven and always more than anything. We've been fascinated by the very human human feeling curiosity and belief that's gone into the winding story of extraterrestrial research on Earth as we always say in our intro. Oh each of these stories. We've covered has garnered thousands if not millions of true believers and for that reason they've been well worth exploring flooring.

Caesar still here on our planet in hiding underground and on military bases use theories were often greeted with laughter by French audiences but he had a response to their dismissal. There was a far reaching conspiracy to encourage mockery of UFO theories governments around the world. We're behind every laugh that greeted him. They were hiding evidence of aliens for their own secretive nefarious reasons. You insisted that the proof proof of the existence was in the research if you look hard enough at incidents like the nineteen forty seven Roswell crash and that's exactly what filmmaker Oh maker Ray Santilli did in nineteen ninety five. He claimed to have obtained film depicting the autopsy of a gray recovered from Roswell swell. At first it seemed he had twenty two reels of sixteen millimeter film. All original to the nineteen forty seven recording wording. He released these striking images to the public. As the short film alien autopsy it showed alarming footage of a creature looked just like a gray with slight sinewy body and enormous head it was prone on a medical table a doctor and has Matsuda. Methodically article dissected the corpse. It's an arresting disturbing scene with questionable origins in two thousand six SANTILLI story story changed. He admitted the film had released was not original footage of the alien autopsy but a reconstruction of a film he'd seen in Nineteen Ninety two.

Cutting into his creation for maximum creepy effect after filming the team disposed of the mutilated alien corpses is by cutting them into small pieces and distributing them in trash cans across London. This was an extensive comprehensive admission of exactly how santilli created his sinister fake. And there's no hard evidence that the original film Santilli apparently based his reconstruction on ever existed but the filmmaker maintained that his reconstruction was a faithful copy of something real regardless by the new millennium. The real real world gray sightings were piling up even today the majority of extraterrestrial sightings report gray like creatures more often than any other kind of alien Leeann but alongside these real world sightings the cultural references where piling up to the scene described in our teaser from Steven Spielberg's nineteen seventy seven film close encounters of the third kind doesn't claim to depict a real life alien encounter like H G wells work back in the eighteen ninety s get presents the grays as fiction a positive if mysterious and unsettling fiction in Spielberg's film.

That's over one and a quarter billion today but it wasn't the only piece of Culture Sir to tackle the grays in the later half of the twentieth century the X. Files which first aired in nineteen ninety-three also featured gray like aliens again as fiction fiction a terrifying fiction here other science fiction. TV shows followed suit dark skies stargate st one the list goes on then the phenomena of the greys spread further. They weren't just showing up in science fiction movies and TV. They started appearing everywhere in video. Games toys doors comedies. Like South Park and people of the Earth today we see them at our iphones as emojis. Little Children Dress up as grace for Halloween when they draw spaceships the faces peering out of the windows are gray faces. These extraterrestrials have become so iconic that they've lost is the spooky factor that originally define them even when they weren't behaving badly they become so familiar that they're harmless today. Most people would have trouble calling to mind any other image of extraterrestrial life as the Cold War and the space recede into the past. Fewer People's minds minds are on the sky the way they were in the second half of the twentieth century there aren't as many real life UFO sightings these days in two thousand as an eighteen multiple major websites for reporting UFO sightings said the number of tips they received had gone down forty five percent since two thousand fourteen mm-hmm. That's nearly cut in half too many people today Roswell as just a tourist town with a hokey alien theme or the name of Teen TV show and yet the grays live on for some extraterrestrial enthusiasts that seems like a dead giveaway that they're more than just the product of cold war paranoia and the UFO Zeitgeist. They both preceded and outlasted that epoch in Earth's global history but if the GREYS Are More than just another alien story. Does that mean they're walking amongst us or hovering somewhere up in the sky or is is there another explanation.

"Most readers assume the article was simply an invention of the eighteen ninety eight novel considering that the book his fiction after all in fact the article was real but it too was fiction and written by the same author as the novel itself Alf in the context of wells career.

What if the war of the worlds was right and that I text mentioning gray like creatures? Church really was a prophecy. Not About Man's future but about a real alien race wells did did present the gray creatures as fiction but many things he presented his fiction. His novels turned out to be real eventually. His writing seemingly predicted everything from the airplane. In the atomic bomb to satellite television and the World Wide Web one example shows up in his nineteen twenty-three text men men like Gods where wells presents a futuristic utopia where people communicate exclusively through wireless systems which look a whole lot like a mix of voice mail and email Simon James Professor of English studies at Durham University and former editor of the official journal of the H. G. Wells Society. The explained wells was an imagination in a hurry. He wanted to get to the future sooner than it was going to happen. That's why he's so predictive addictive in his writing. He was a true visionary and perhaps his vision of aliens in the war of the worlds was yet another example of his imagination. Asian spying a future reality even for wells. The Gray like aliens he described in the war of the worlds seem to have struck a nerve. He couldn't quite get them out of his head. The war of the worlds wasn't wells. Only science fiction novel to describe extraterrestrial fuel beings in terms matching his man of the year million article his nineteen o one book the first man in the moon presented the moon's inhabitants similarly he described them as follows. They resembled man. In maintaining the erect attitude ended having four limbs and I have compared the general appearance appearance of their heads and the joining of their limbs to that of insects I have mentioned to their fragile slightness. Wells called these creatures selling nights after the Greek Moon Goddess. Selene he also mentioned their short stature and their big heads as well as their sophistication and intelligence intelligence very gray like in appearance interestingly however the gray like aliens wells described in each of his texts played very very different roles and exhibited very different behaviors. Here they maintain their own complex society beneath the surface of the moon but in the war of the worlds they were little more than Chattel simply food for the dominant Martians. Most readers attribute the evocative imagery in different storylines lines in both texts to wells rich vivid imagination that same imagination that won him the title father of science fiction but just like his present descriptions of technologies resembling atomic bombs and Internet. Perhaps wells gray like aliens were also an eerily really accurate prediction of something real to come. His work certainly went on to influence other authors. But these strange aliens aliens started showing up in real world extraterrestrial sightings to coming up. We'll discuss the evolution of the greys from the stuff of satire and Scifi to the stuff of news reports and exposes says now back to the story in eighteen ninety three the first written record of a huge headed lustrous. I'd humanoid appeared in the work of science fiction author H G wells. It wasn't long before these creatures were populating. Other science fiction books. One was in nineteen thirty three Swedish novel by Gustaf Sand Grin. who used the pen name? Gabrielle Linda like Wells Aliens signed Zongren. Extraterrestrials had large heads in is weak chins and a short stature but wells work didn't just influence other SCI FI writers it also inspired one of the greatest pranks in US history in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight Orson Welles. NO RELATION TO H G narrated and directed in American radio play version of H G wells the war of the world. The sixty minute broadcast presented. The first I two thirds of the show as a news bulletin describing odd explosions on Mars followed by apparently unrelated report of a strange object. OBJECT FALLING IN GROVER MILL NEW JERSEY. These news reports were interspersed with musical interludes like any radio broadcast but then they. We started to get stranger and scarier. Martians emerged from the fallen cylindrical. Grove's mill and then they attacked hacked. Listeners were terrified. Thanks to horsing wells ingenious presentation. A swath of the public was convinced. The story wasn't fiction but breaking news. Hanoch erupted according to some reports up to a million people ran out into the streets. There is trained on the sky looking for descending aliens. The scope of hysteria was likely exaggerated by contemporary very newspapers looking to discredit radio as up. Reputable News source but the central fact remains. The radio. Play was extremely convincing. This was in part because of the news bulletin gimmick but it was also because the story was so compelling H. G. Wells extraterrestrials Seemed real and their ties to reality would only get stronger in the years to come beginning with Barney and Betty Hill. Frequent listeners may recall our episodes on their story middle aged interracial American couple Barney and Betty Hill claimed that they'd been abducted from rural New Hampshire back in September nineteen sixty one by a crew of aliens throughout the Cold War and its accompanying space race and technological innovation and there was increasing real world focus on extraterrestrial life. Something we've discussed throughout this show. Humanities is on the sky in in a new way and they were seeing strange things up there including plenty of UFO sightings some were easily explained as human aircraft satellites or other airborne technologies others. Were harder to identify. But the story of Barney and Betty Hill was one of the first ever reports of of an alien abduction. The hill couple shared graphic details of abuse apparently suffered at the hands of their alien captors. Their her story gained international attention making headlines. Far beyond their native New Hampshire their story came together slowly with the help of hypnosis this and at different stages of their psychological evaluations the account played out differently but the predominant image of the hill abductors was of of tiny humanoid creatures with enormous slanted. Black is in other words. The grays somehow the same visual characteristics that H. G. Wells noted in that 1893 article were showing up in a nineteen. Sixty one New Hampshire alien abduction. Listen but the presence of the GREYS didn't end with the case of Barney and Betty Hill in the late nineteen seventies UFO researchers. There's dead into an alleged extraterrestrial crash in Roswell New Mexico. They published their findings in a nineteen. Eighty book called the Roswell incident. Thanks thanks in part to their investigation. The Roswell crash which apparently occurred in nineteen forty seven is one of the most well known extraterrestrial sightings of all time time but it's iconic for reason the list of people who may have seen or who may know something about Roswell is endless white. The story have Barney and Betty Hill. We've covered the citing roswell in detail in earlier episodes but what would like to focus on. Here is the testimony of one nurse who who story was shared. Second Hand in Nineteen ninety-one book by Donald Schmitt and Kevin randle called UFO crash. At Roswell Glenn Dennis Arroz well resident working at a local funeral home in nineteen forty seven told the nurses story to the book's authors. He was apparently a friend of hers whom she confided. Fight it in and although he never named her he explained what allegedly happened to her. For the sake of this episode will call her Lucy. Lucy was working at the Roswell Army airfield as a nurse in early July nineteen forty seven. She walked into the infirmary as usual. But she'd missed a memo telling all regular nursing staff to stay away. She wasn't supposed to be there but she couldn't unsee and see what she encountered. Inside that building the infirmary was swarming with men in plastic sanitary suits. Their faces were covered with surgical surgical masks and they were all examining a pair of Cadavers unzipped bodybags. The corpses were small and mangled the size of children but their proportions weren't those of children atop their gauntlet bodies were large bulbous heads completely completely bald and on those heads enormous slanting is but few other distinct facial features no ears here's teeth noses just like h g wells had prophesized. The Roswell aliens were like the Barney and Betty Hill aliens NHS grays. But this still wasn't the end of the real world gray sightings in nineteen eighty-seven writer Whitley Lee strieber up to this point. Best known as a horror novelist wrote a non fiction book on his personal experiences with extraterrestrial life called Communion mm Union the book chronicled strippers terrifying inexplicable.

Arthur C Clarke mark. He once said to possibilities exist either. We are alone in the universe. We are not both are equally terrifying and we remain terrified this week as we explore the most iconic alien race the grays they represent the most widely sadly recognized pop culture version of extraterrestrial life and they show up everywhere from science fiction novels to real life UFO sightings while their personalities behaviors and apparent intentions are remarkably varied. Their appearance is always the same today. We'll trace the history history of this strange race and determine whether their persistence in the extraterrestrial record is the result of an incredibly unusual cultural phenomenon. Or if they actually exist to trace our way through the history of the Greys we have to go all the way back to eighteen. Ninety three and the office of British author H G. Wells wells was at twenty-seven-year-old aspiring writer. He had one nonfiction book under his belt. A textbook of biology jeep and was beginning to write short humorous articles for periodicals like the now defunct Pall Mall budget in the fall of eighteen. Ninety three he does it work on one particular story which he would eventually title the man of the year million the peace like most of wells work at the time took casillas tone. It claimed to be a review of great unwritten volume by Professor Holtz cough of Vice Nick University. This work once it was written would detail. The man of the year million per the article's title and Wells Riding took on the task of explaining what this man would look like and and how he would behave now not only is the volume wells purports to be reviewing unwritten but Holtz cough is German for blockhead and and even vice nick volks refers to an imaginary city in Thomas Carlyle satirical eighteen thirty three work SARTORI resources from there. The the city's name became code for more general indefinite unknown or imaginary place as the Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines it today. Wells readers at publications like the Palamau budget would have been accustomed to the thriving tradition of British satire and to these primed readers. All of the above were immediate giveaways that the article was an extended show of wit a joke. The joke being about the bizarre man of the year million described by this imaginary professor in his imaginary book. A being of brain rather than body. The titular man's stature ascher was small while his head was large. His skin was gray and his face was described as follows is large urge. lustrous beautiful soulful above them no longer separated by rugged brow ridges is the top of the head a glistening joining hairless dome to reet and beautiful no craggy knows rises to disturb by its own meaning shadows the symmetry of that calm calm face no vestigial ears project. The mouth is a small perfectly round aperture toothless and Gum Louis joyless Hollis on animal no futile emotions disturbing. It's round nece as it lies. Like the harvest moon or the evening star. In the wide firmament firmament of the face the description presents under irving features as great positives. This future man won't need most of the body parts we hold hold dear such as years or teeth because he relies on intellect alone for survival. He is evolved beyond those animalistic traits that defined the modern biological man such as the need to chew food instead of eating he immerses himself in nutritive fluid paddling about with with his pals instead of sitting down to dinner. No more table manners. Just communal baths the article was accompanied by an illustration of a creature shirt resembling a fetus. Man's future apparently was visually similar to his past as a baby to readers in eighteen ninety. Three the irony of the whole thing was hilarious or meant to be but this portrayal of the man of the year million also present. Something that sounds a whole lot ought like the greys to UFO enthusiasts in the twentieth century the image seems less amusing and more intriguing. uh-huh and what wells did next only increased the intrigue his career accelerated. He went on to author dozens of novels short stories and books of social commentary before he died in nineteen forty six but in generations to come he'd be best known as the father of science. It's fiction one of his most famous Sifi. Texts was the eighteen ninety eight novel. The War of the worlds which documents and alien invasion of earth the main invading race of aliens in the text wasn't the grays but the MARTIANS octopus like creatures made up of a disembodied head. Ed With Sixteen Tentacles clustered next to the beast's mouth but the gres show up in the novel to no longer a description for the evolution of man. Dan Wells transposes his man of the year million into a subjugated alien race that act as food for the dominant Martians in in eighteen ninety eight the grays became aliens interesting late in the novel. Wells referred back to his article on the man of the year million as a prophecy without mentioning that he himself had written it in the context of the book. The article or prophecy was a real world taxed published in eighteen ninety three periodical..

"The mist was thick. The air filled with an almost electric crackle of anticipation and the crowd of spectators stared agog at the strange vessel before them a flying saucer illuminated with a million blinking lights. It's they were waiting but they didn't have to wait long. Suddenly a horde of creatures spilled from the mouth of the ship with child sized bodies and enormous heads. They seemed. Almost all is pitch black inky is as unfathomable the mobile and endless as space itself they were sinewy doll like with their androgynous naked figures and they were gray. So goes one of the final scenes of Steven. Spielberg's nineteen seventy seven film close encounters of the third kind and it's fiction but the extraterrestrials it presents are a disturbingly common fiction there. The universally accepted image of alien alien and have been for decades. The image has had remarkable. Staying power is that just coincidence or is there another darker worker reason for the fact that we can't seem to shake these odd creatures. Some people believe there is they believe grays are real walking amongst us. Just half hidden by multinational government conspiracies seeping into the world through stories and strange sightings. Thanks waiting to be found..

"Hello and welcome to everything filc. I'm here with gray reinhard yay. Oh man yeah it's <hes> you're back at dragon con again this year right. That is the plan with who and <hes> let's see you. You claim that you haven't done much over the past year but a talking with you a little earlier. It seems like you've actually done a bit and you got a lot on your plate. Well i try to keep busy see but i feel as if i haven't been as productive. Maybe as i have been in in other years well. That's always always feel good if i can can get at least one story or something published in a year and and this year i didn't have a short story. Come out in an anthology gucci so at check that block block and i feel like even though i haven't released a new album or rip rip finished writing a new book or anything like that that i've at least you know made some progress while you said you were working on a new book so you are. You're at least working on it right. That is true. <hes> yeah i started close to the beginning of the year <hes> trying in writing a fantasy novel this time <hes> and actually i won't go into the nitty gritty details because the idea for it is a couple couple years old. Actually i finally figured out how to do it <hes> and in that time probably written about fifty fifty thousand words with so. It's i'd say it's almost half done on <hes> and if i can maintain that pace it means that that i would finish it <hes> early next year <hes> to wish me luck definitely good luck. I mean that sounds like if you can get that done. You'd have it by next. Dragon gone right. Oh probably not though they publishing works <hes> i would like to say that by next day khan i might have interested publisher in producing it okay okay <hes> but certainly it would not be ready for <hes> for purchase or anything like that just because the process says of developmental edits and cover art and everything that goes into <hes> taking a manuscript all the way okay through to production. I would need to be finished with the book now. Oh wow in order to really make that process assis work <hes> to its to its full so it takes at least a year from being done with the book to being being able to <hes> being able to have it fully published in ready for purchase and often longer depending on <hes> bill exactly what the what the publishing schedule is like <hes> if it's a small publisher <hes> <hes> like the folks who brought out my <hes> my science fiction novel <hes> <hes> yeah a year a little less than a year is doable <hes> because they don't do a lot of titles and the the the whole process is relatively streamlined for a bigger publisher <hes> it may be a year and a half <hes> and it may be even even longer depending on if i if they accept the manuscript but then they want changes if they say oh you know here in the third act <hes> we would really rather sure that are we think it would make a better story if you did this and then if i have to go back and rewrite part of it then it just lengthens that whole time with the editing process and everything yeah right right and this is one that i i hope that i will be able to interest <hes> a small press or even possibly a bigger press <hes> in in in publishing this just because since i work for a publisher i'm aware of the value that a good publisher brings to to any project so is that normal to look for different publishers depending on what you're writing the general question that you that you stick with your one publisher publisher of for the books that right but <hes> well it used to be back in the back in the good old days that the you know if an author published one novel or when series of novels with publisher then <hes> there might be a contractual part that says you know that that publisher gets the chance to publish the next thing that the author writes okay <hes> that that's not as standard i'll say as it used to be not as common <hes> now it's not that i have a bad ed relationship with my publisher <hes> but they publish as as as i have observed they publish more more of the more on the lines of science fiction than on the fantasy side project <hes> and while i think they would do a fine job <hes> i because i already worked for a publisher i feel that in the same way that i gave and i worked for bain books because i gave bain right of first refusal on my science fiction novel i i feel as if i o bain right of first refusal on everything i write simply because i work for them pretty much full time yeah <hes> <hes> as a contractor but but nevertheless they are my primary <hes> client and so if if <hes> as it went with the science fiction novel that they say hey this is a pretty good book but it's just not quite for us then i would probably probably go back to the word fire and let them have have a shot at it. <hes> although i've a friend of mine who has his own imprint has already expressed some interest in it so oh that's a nice feeling yes but <hes> but but i still feel as if i owe it to bain in particular <hes> to give them right of first refusal got up at <hes> <hes> and and if they were to pick it up that would be great to a fair enough now. It's just interesting a will things behind the scenes. People don't really think about and i would not have thought about it except the kind of immersed i in that world naturally well okay so doing doing well with a book that you're writing and but you also mentioned before the <hes> you came out with an audiobook over the last year right down that is true <hes> my science fiction novel walking on the sea of cloud that as i mentioned word fire press published in twenty seventeen mm-hmm <hes> this past spring audio book for that was released and folks have been very complimentary of the the production quality <hes> and in particular <hes> the because because the book involves a cast of characters that is fairly international okay <hes> the narrator had some accent accent work required to differentiate one character's voice from another and i personally think she did an excellent job. I'm in other folks have have agreed. I'm very happy about this. Great great. You know audio books as far as the publishing publishing of those go does that go through your standard publisher does that go through something completely different well in this case <hes> word fire press press. <hes> took it upon themselves to to head up the production of of audio book <hes>. They're not an audio book producer themselves so they went through <hes> a._c. Ex <hes> which is they produce a lot of audiobooks could also have gone through audible and some other places <hes> but <hes> i got involved in the process early on in in that they would send me the the auditions that people did <hes> 'cause they put out a call for auditions and i i let a lot of my friends know people. I've worked on audio productions with <hes>. Hey you know my my my book is going to be done in audio. If you wanna do it you need to do an audition and several folks <hes> told me that they would have liked to but they had other commitments and i was fine with that <hes> but so we ended up getting about six different different auditions in and i was able to express my opinion and say you know these are i would rate rate them one to six in this order and they they went with a the one that i thought the audition was the best oh good <hes> but the insider baseball part of that was that they didn't know what i knew at the time and that was that this particular audition was from my daughter. Oh aw.
