At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

"With us today, we have the Amazing Justin Fella Aka five, eighty five. He's Guatemalan American artists from Nevada known for his large scale sculptures that plays with American pop culture and the lat next experienced. He's the host of a couple of podcasts including the art people podcast and one of my favorite podcasts. Latinos who lunch welcomed Fathi. Welcome. Still trying to figure out technology. Technical difficulties. We're like we're right there. Thank you. Thank you for having me. I am in Las Vegas Nevada right now since. Yes in city where people don't believe that wearing masks is a big so. Crystal. Very similarly. You know we we started working at Greenpeace right around the same time and we really didn't see a lot of lat next representation in the environmental movement in these big green organizations and so we thought hey, like maybe we can just do something like that and on your show you talk about sort of the intersection between being Queer Latinas and sort of like this idea of Spangler. Inside this Anglo world out what do you think is the importance of intersection analogy was important to talk about. Oh my gosh. That's one of the. That's one of the big big missions of Lebanon's lunches that. If it's not intersectional it it's really not for for anyone really like if it's not intersect, the revolution is intersectional whom we will never be free basically you know. So from the very beginning, we've been checking ourselves on our privilege as gender males on the show, and because we recognize the all the you know the misogyny within own you know belief systems just based on how we were raised in America and I'm saying America like North South and Central America and so And then something that happened maybe like a year or two intellectuals who lunch was the recognition of the erasure of Central American culture, and also after let me move out. So we actively before people are using the term anti-racists or. Really. Intersection analogy I think I heard that a lot after the the white woman's March that happened a few years ago So but they got fizzy hatsaw haven't seen many at the black lives haven't seen many at the black lives matter protests but so wh-. Anyway, We really we really started paying attention to like oh my gosh we're really like Mexico centric on our show we need to actively be anti-black and talk about colors and talk about the erasure of offer. Let the needle on our show and we recognize that it was our own. You know that was our one of our personal goal was to really openly talk about that and have sometimes uncomfortable conversation. Let I love what you said. We can't have revolution if it's not intersectional because the sort of Traumas and the histories and experiences are compounded with each identity that include you both you know in a way that's like. Boosts Society and helps you in society also not. About yeah. especially with climate change because at the end of the day, we're all going to be affected by climate change but to what degree and how soon it really depends on where you are how much you have, how much you given, how much you're supported in society. It's funny because like recycling and incur the environment it seen this very same in or you know white people saying but it's like no dinos have been trying to take care of the environment for a very long time. We just don't talk about it in the same way you know what I mean. So I mean I also like to pretend that I'm Vegan. Just people mad because you know that's US relegated to just white people. You know I'm so like Oh. Yeah. I. Don't I don't wanna eat cows anymore because it's bad for the environment and that's like the real thing that I'm doing now that we're talking about claim it and how much Linex do people care about it maybe not in the same context that you know white people are recycling or being around this like we have our willows. Teaching on like here's the. Deal or like rub this like urban you're like sore foot and you'll wake up of. The best. Or some other iteration of that Linex people care about the environment and we quote like or reference this study that happened recently at Yale that seventy percent of people in the United States, Horley care about the environment, and so how do you see that or not see that reflected in our culture and how do you see annex values reflected in the conversation around the environment? yeah, I mean there's there's very different schools of thinking within my own family for example, but like my will lead, you know isolated people do it saying this online to we've been saving plastic bags and containers from jump? Right. That's just something that we do in our like is that sour cream in the fridge? That's probably. Some leftover beans or something. You never know you never know I'm so in little ways like that we're very resourceful as Latinos because we have to be, but also it's just part of our culture even in Latin? America. But I am example that pops up to my pops up to my head is recently visited what the my life for the first time as an adult and went back to where my mom is from this little little village called. We let the in Garland which is right in the center of a psychopath in Guatemala and so. HALF OF MY A. Family are farmers and then half of them are. are raise cattle So it's like. That's when I realized like Yo my family is responsible for like the deforestation of Quantum Allah because I'm seeing all this open land my GRANDPA has. but they don't see that way. They're like, no cows our money we're going to raise cows we're GONNA make you know we're gonna them or dairy cow. So then we'll be sold for me and so there's this acres and acres of land that my family owns that is is just it's just grass now when it used to be rich rainforest

"Night Welcome to kids Miss Mystery Cyber your host kit chrome today. I'm going to talk about how some Mistakes made it into text books and I'm going to start with the woolly mammoth arose about five point one million years ago in Africa according to the curator of the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated through Eurasia North America their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing what we know now as the wooly mammoth beginning roughly two, hundred, fifty, thousand years ago. mammoths were extinct about ten thousand years ago. OOPS more like three, thousand, five, hundred years ago scientists now believe an isolated population of mammoth persisted on Wrangel Island off the northeastern coast of Siberia. And deep in Canada's Northwest Territories, World Heritage site in hunt, valley until about three thousand, seven, hundred years ago. Unfortunately, the ten thousand year mark of extinction is in most textbooks. But let's take a closer look at that date the prominent theory that made it into most textbooks. Encyclopedia's remember those was ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through. Eurasian North America, driven by the last ice age, they were following the food supply. If that's the case, then it makes sense that some moms ended up into Hani because it was never touched by. The last ice age and yes bone. So the mammoth have been found in that region but this isn't the first theory published in Texbook. As fact that there's some founded expend believed and yes, made it into text books that the continent of Antarctica has been covered by ice for millions of years again hoops the Perry reese map drawn in fifteen thirteen shows the northern coast of Arctic as ice-free. The most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be. So accurate three hundred years before Antarctica was discovered but that the map shows the real Coche line under the ice geological evidence. has confirmed that the latest date and Artika could have been charted in an ice free ages. Four thousand BC officials sciences been saying all along the ice cap, which covers yet arctic is millions of years old the Perry reese at Arctic map shows, but the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it. That could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time further and more accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice free condition and already got ended about six thousand years ago. The question is who map Queen Maud land at Arctic six thousand years ago which unknown civilization, how the technology or the need to do that I wanNA touch on just one more scientific nestled in the ancient city of Komo. Polka Bolivia are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of Pyramids Wayne from two hundred to four hundred tons each block nothing unusual there the city dates back to five, thirty, six AD. Yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found. Staple shaped clamps that fit in place were used to hold the blocks together. How could the indigenous people? No knowledge of urgency have created these clamps and where did the metal they use come from? This isn't the only case of metal clamps being used to hold giants don't together in Cambodia's anchor watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the site of the temple from nearby mountain via series of waterways. Close inspection of stones that are scattered around the site have revealed carved indentation receptacles for metal clamps perhaps. How about an eerie coincidence just outside the magnificent ruins of anger what stands an ancient pyramid temple known as backseat clump core now from Cambodia. Travel over eight thousand miles to Guatemala in the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at the call is the Temple of the Great Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid in Guatemala the similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both. These pyramids both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that didn't exist in many other pyramids or temples however, and perhaps most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on the top of both once there you can see there's a small door that goes inside the pyramid on both and there's another internal structure that looks the same. Basically what you have here is an ancient civilization. Cambodia. Another one in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles, they feature incredible similarities that no one not even science has been able to explain

A Mother & Her Newborn Separated by COVID-19

"I scare. It's so great to talk to you after all this hard work on your film. It's it's it's really good to be here. So thank you so much for having me. Yeah, I. Mean, we're so we're so excited. I know this is your first frontline. So congratulations on making over the finish line with us together. It feels really good I to be honest I'm also a view or an an a big fan. So it's It's a real pleasure to be working with. Such a talented group of people. Thank you. So I I was hoping you could set the scene a little bit for us. This is an immigrant family from Guatemala and the Mother Zoo League. Is close to giving birth to her second child when she's hospitalized with the virus. So what happens next? So it's it's April first and was eight months pregnant and Kobe positive tool doctors determined that he had to be intimated to perform an emergency c section. Baby Mazel was born on April second baby was Kovic negative. The real problem here was that his father Marvin and his seven-year-old brother junior were also covid positive. So there was no way he could go back to that that that environment that was a real problem school. Before it being intimidated solution was able to. Ms. Luciana. Lira Luciana Lira is juniors. Schoolteacher and she said, help my son help my husband and my baby. Massad listen, Marvin I am willing to help one hundred percent I really do not know this family. Zilly just came to the United. States. I think a year ago and Marvin has been here for six years and junior is my bilingual student. And that's how I met them. When we were able to test marketing engineer, they were both Cova nine hundred positive. This baby would've not stand a chance if he went home with his father with Covid nineteen and junior. His, just a preemie baby. I think that that tells you so much about Miss Lewis character and and her her personality for you to receive a phone call like that I really need to take care of my son, my husband and my baby and she did I mean, can you imagine you received the phone call? She thought that it was a joke that that it was a prank I. Mean. What's amazing is actually that was the first footage of your documentary that we saw the really truly remarkable scene with MISL- era and the baby, and you know she's holding the baby and she's telling you this incredible story about why she took all of this on. To be honest I I'm living. Sure how? I was able to get that that access because she was not letting anyone in her house and she told me, Hey, not even my sister is allowed to be in here. And I'm like well, I'm going to try to be. Is Just GonNa be me I'm going to have a camera. Ms Lira trust me I'm going to try to be you know as cautious as I can be. I think just important that you share that story and I think she wanted to share this story otherwise wouldn't have been possible at all. I went to the hospital with Marvin. Wasn't easy because you know he saw his son for the first time. You couldn't even go him. To. US. And it really broke my heart. After going through such a big trauma not even knowing if your wife was gonna make it, do Pakatani communicated to be. A month of. On the Nights at the baby home. Right, maybe. It was amazing seeing those those early scenes that you had filmed. You know obviously, you guys didn't know how this was gonNA turn out and I remember talking to you sometime before mother's Day and you were telling us that maybe Suli we'd get her baby back. I mean you certainly didn't think it was going to go on for as long as it did was actually five and a half weeks. So tell me about the emotional journey that Suli and Marvin her husband were on you know I think that The story was so unexpected and it had so many twists that I think nobody was expecting it Ms Lear thought that she was going to keep the baby for maybe two or three days. It was very emotional to witness the lives of and Marvin all of them were were positive at that time and the pediatrician said if the baby is going to go back home. Everyone in that house need to test negative, otherwise, it can happen. So you can imagine that the minutes felt like ours you know in the our failed like days to them it was really difficult for for for Suli it was very, very difficult for her because she was going through a lot. You know she said that she had night Mertz pretty much every single night and that she she was not able to get any risk at all You know it's not easy. Imagine that that she said, I didn't have a chance to look at my son you know in I just have A. Faded picture of him and that the only thing I know they do a lot of video conferences. So to say, watts up, that was their main way of communication and missle era. You know she was sending videos every day calling them. You know just to make sure that that bond was was still there you know kind of like a virtual bond. That moment, but it's the law of mom. There was a very powerful connection and you can see it when you see in the scene when they when when she's holding the baby for the first time, I mean, it's just an electrifying moment.

A New Album Turns The Sound Of Endangered Birds Into Electronic Music

"An international collective of electronic deejays and composers is taking their beats out of the dance club, and into jungles and forests. It's all to help save nature's greatest singers. Birds Catalina Maria. Johnson has the story of a guide to the Birdsong Project Robin. Perkins is a thirty three road DJ composer producer originally from glass of England. He goes by the name A. Spanish for the. Perkins produced his first project in Twenty fifteen a guy to the Birdsong of South America. The whole project was born of this idea of taking the songs of endangered birds and challenging musicians to make a piece of music from and so trying to marry these worlds of activism, all conservation Goodson and joining us. Perkins invited artists from each of the endangered or threatened birds homelands to build their own solves around the Birdsong. The beautiful thing about electronic music is that it opens up this whole toolbox of things that you can vies do right so you can take a sample of a bird song and do five million things to it. You can turn into an instrument itself. You can reverse it. You can have effects. You can sample. Ed Perkins has just finished the second project. A guy to the Birdsong of Mexico Central, America and the Caribbean. One of the musicians who responded to his call is Nicaraguan Sonic artist that on behavioral. She chose the Turquoise Proud Maat Maat or Guatemala. rankle to me was a very clear choice as a child I would see this bird freely flying around and meeting his partner, the travel in pairs most of the time in my backyard for sunsets. Beautiful mystical moment every day. What about wrangle is threatened by loss of habitat primarily due to deforestation, it's also Nicaragua's national bird. This bird represents a lot of symbolic in my area of the world's, because it represents freedom and these Central American countries have been striving for political social economic freedom for a long time. The idea of freedom was also part of the impetus for Al Ovando choice. Ovando is a member of the renowned Gutty for collective, that also includes musicians from what the my love on us and Nicaragua for the collective's contribution to the album Ovando chose the endangered black cat. Like the guava uncle, the black cat birds freedom is threatened by loss of habitat. Obando feels his people have a special kinship with the catbird and struggle for survival, like you've just imagining US coming all the way from the coast of West Africa into the Caribbean, ending up in believes that still continuing the struggle and trying to be part of what the world is today. Ovando also happens to be a devoted burger. He even convinced the. The band to add a technical writer to its contracts when the musicians perform at festivals, so we know what we should just add it on and just put just for fun. You know some of us in the collective avid burgers, and if it here's anybody at the festival. Who'd like to burning? We would love to go birding with them married. They would know some places some hot spots. In Oh, we could check out some birds. As with the first scalpels, all of the profits from the new release will support organizations in each region. One of them is birds, Caribbean. It's executive director Lisa. Sorenson explains how the recording not only help her efforts, but may also yield extended benefits helping to develop sites in the Caribbean that need infrastructure for example, there might be a beautiful place to go see birds, but there's no trail. There's no interpretive sign edge there to tell you about what you're seeing. So we're envisioning funding from this project will help us advance building the supply and building the demand for sustainable burden nature tourism. That's project founder. Robin Perkins wish to yeah. Hopefully people will come away from the album. Feeling inspired and feeling the need to listen against the Birdsong around them to do something to protect the natural spaces that we need to survive proceeds from a guide to the Birdsong of Mexico Central America, and the Caribbean will also benefit nonprofits in Costa Rica and Mexico.

"Today. We're taking a look at a quotes from Joaquin El Chapo Guzman. The once lead of the Sinoloa content in Mexico Gu's Mon- used his crime syndicate to sell billions of dollars worth of drugs. Boys one step ahead of the police. Goose Mon- escaped jail twice bride politicians and shed the blood of allies and foes alike in light of this. It's ironic that the notorious drug lord once said I know one day I will die. I hope it's a natural causes. Guzman allegedly said this to actor Sean Penn. During a secret interview for Rolling Stone Magazine Guzman supposedly wanted a Hollywood film to be written about his life. It's not surprising. Gu's mom believed his life was worthy of the big screen after all his rise in the world of narcotics has been nothing short of cinematic Guzman was introduced to the drug trade early. He was born in. Nineteen fifty seven in La Tuna a rural town in Mexico. Though his claimed to be a simple farmer it's widely believed that he grew opium poppies by nineteen seventy the fifteen year old guzman was farming marijuana alongside his cousins at only five foot six is small stature earned him the nickname. El Chapo which is Mexican slang for shorty dues. Mon- didn't let his ambitions mirror his size in the late. Nineteen Seventy S. He grabbed onto the opportunity to work for Miguel on. Hell sciutto widely known. As the godfather of Mexico's first nationwide drug operation the Guadalajara Cartel Fedex put goose man in charge of smuggling logistics. Who's Mon- proved himself to be a ruthless taskmaster? He went as far as murdering employees. If ever they were late with deliveries this show of strength paid off in spades when feliks was arrested in nineteen eighty nine a thirty two year old. Guzman received a choice piece of the former drug lords territory. With his little slice of North West Mexico secured Guzman's set up his own operation. Everything about the Sinoloa cartel was innovative and Malton. He sets up complex underground tunnels to ferry drugs across the border. Earning him millions of dollars and attention from officials in both the United States and Mexico in nineteen ninety three after the highly publicized death of a Catholic cardinal who was caught in a drugged. Her for the thirty six year-old Guzman was blamed. He was arrested in Guatemala and sentenced to twenty years in prison. However the entire time guzman mom was in jail. He lived like a king. Bribing God's so he could receive conjugal visits on-command then when he got forward in two thousand one. He broke out of prison. Legend states that he snuck count in a laundry cart. Journalists believed that he more likely just salted out his path cleared by the many gods. He bribed in two thousand nine eight years. After breaking out of jail sinoloa cartel was doing better than ever this led to fifty two year-old Guzman landing on Forbes list of the world's richest people the magazine stated that he was personally worth one billion dollars. You didn't get there without a little brutality. To hold onto his empire the drug lord is to have personally tortured and murdered his rivals and even though he was arrested again. By Marines in two thousand fourteen. The stone cold killer escaped once more a little over a year later in July. Two Thousand Fifteen as he got older without ever facing real consequences for his crimes his hubris increased. That's what led him to consent to an interview by Hollywood actor Sean Penn. It's rumored that his communications with pen were traced by Mexican authorities ultimately leading to his capture. Guzman was extradited to the United States. Where he face charges of drug trafficking intend to distribute money laundering and homicide during the Eleven Week. Trial even more disturbing revelations about Guzman surfaced. According to a BBC Article One witness told the court that Guzman had buried demand alive. Another told of a rival NOCCO chief who refused to shake goosebumps hand and paid for it with his life. Court papers also accused him of raping girls as young as the team calling them. His vitamins ultimately Guzman was found. Guilty of ten counts including charges of narcotics trafficking. He was sentenced to life in prison. This means that Guzman likely will die of natural causes just as he wished.

"Think about the small moments or decisions in your life that actually had a huge impact on how your life turned out. Maybe it was a conversation. You struck up with the person next to you on an airplane. Maybe it was a party. You reluctantly went to only to meet the person you'd eventually marry or maybe it was a decision to stay on vacation an extra day that sparked a new idea for Kevin System. It was a random remark from his girlfriend that made him decide to use filters on instagram for Blake. Majkowski was a chance meeting with a group of young Argentinian who took him to the countryside where he saw kids with no shoes. That one day inspired him to create. Tom's and for Louis Fun on it was a free lecture at Carnegie Mellon University in two thousand. We'll get deeper into the story in a few minutes but that single lecture would lead him to invent to ingenious new tools the I was capture. Yes captures those annoying twisted and blurred letters. You have to type into a website to prove your human and the second one was duo lingo now. The biggest language learning APP in the world which is now getting even more popular because people are looking for new things to do now that they're stuck at home but was captured and duo. Lingo were designed to harness the power of crowdsourcing to solve problems. And I'M GONNA blow your mind here if you have ever typed in a capture or reused dueling go. There's a good chance you've taken part in a massive online collaboration that you probably weren't even aware of and it's amazing. How Louis came up with all this but let's start at the beginning. Lewis was born in Guatemala in late. Nineteen Seventy S. Both as parents were doctors and though he was surrounded by poverty violence in Guatemala City. Louis screw up in comparative privilege and as a kid. He spent a lot of time hanging out at the family business. My Mother's family actually had a candy. Factory everybody is always a Mesa. The fact that I grew up with a candy factory they think it was like Willy. Wonka or something. I was not all that much into the candidate. Self I was into the machines because basically the candies made by these gigantic machines. That bump out I don't know how many thousands of pieces of candy per hour and basically all my weekends. I spent playing at the Candy Factory and I would They the machines apart and put them back together they would be some extra pieces after. I put him back together on that. That would be a problem but what? What kind of student were you were? You were school pretty easy for you. Yeah I was pretty nerdy basically. That was really good at math. Math was just easy to me. I what I would do during the summers is basically get either next year or you know. Couple YEARS LATER. Math books on all the sizes. Wow it kind of came easy but the way I really got good ideas by doing hundreds and hundreds exercises. That's what you do in. The summertime was bored. I mean I was an only child I is. I didn't have that much to do. This is remember this is also pre Internet pre everything. So what was I going to do? Man That's what I did was putting playing cards in the spokes of my bicycle and by jolly ranchers seven. Eleven should math books. So you were. Did you just love math? I mean it sounds like kids. Don't think about their future. They're not like I'm going to study math so I can be in tech one day like unless I've really enjoyed it. I I enjoyed it was it was like a puzzle for me by the way this is not the only thing I did. I mean I I also played a lot of video games Pirated Video Games in my commodore sixty four like floppy disks. Floppy Disk loppy discs. That's right I wanted a Nintendo. When I was eight my mother would not get many intendo. She instead got me computer. Commodore Sixty Four. And I couldn't figure out how to use it but eventually I read like the manual stuff and I figured out how to use it more than I figured out. I could buy other people's video games. And so I became a little hub in my in my little neighbourhood but these were not other kids adults or kind of basically young adults who had a computer and they would come to my house and I would take their games and give them my games exchange so then. I collected a pretty large number of video games but sh- mentioned right that I mean because your childhood sounds pretty nice but but like as a kid I guess or even as a teenager there was a civil war in Guatemala right. I mean we know that today. There's a a lot of violence there. Obviously violence in the US and other countries to but Guatemala's has been particularly hard hit. I mean did it feel dangerous when you're a kid yes it did. There was a civil war pretty much since I was born in seventy nine to nineteen ninety-six. There was a civil war going on the whole time. It always felt dangerous when I was fifteen or so. My aunt was kidnapped for ransom. I mean she was gone for seven or eight days. Wow People's cars would be stolen. I don't every couple of months. Somebody's car would be stolen in my family. Going past seven thirty PM was rare games. You needed to go out in a large group. If you're going to go up at seven thirty PM and I did my house had walls and barbed wire yeah. It felt dangerous. I mean this is one of just one of the reasons I came to the US. Actually I mean I was. After my aunt was kidnapped I thought to myself. I don't WanNa live here. Yeah and I guess you did end up leaving Guatemala for college because you went to Duke in North Carolina and you describe yourself as a like a math nerd in school and and is that what you intended to do like to do something in math. That's what I wanted to become an economic math professor. I was pretty certain. I wanted to become a math professor at the time. I thought the best thing that I can do is really learn a lot of math and I really it and I thought it was futile to learn how to deal with other people. It is interesting because my job. These days is one hundred percent just dealing with other people's problems. I'm just trying to understand the so so by becoming math professor. You thought. Hey I wouldn't have to deal with people I would just deal with facts. Data and numbers. Yes yes and you know I. I'll do math research all day long. And every now and then after class of but whatever that's like a tax That's that's what I thought so all right so you are She gets your degree and you this path to go into academia and you go into a PhD program at Carnegie Mellon Correct and I guess you go into computer science right yes. I changed from math computer science because I visited a math Grad school and what people were saying the professor was saying. Oh I'm working on this open problem that nobody's been able to solve for the last three hundred years and I thought I don't think I'm smart enough if you haven't done it and nobody's done it in three hundred years that's Kinda not for me whereas when you visit in computer science I mean this is crazy thing before like. Oh Yeah I still have an open program yesterday. Well it's a much younger field yet so that I thought that was much more exciting for me. At

Scientific Hiccup

"All Welcome to kiss Miss Misery. Sime your host kit chrome hoping you're healthy and staying sheltered in place today. I'm going to talk about scientific hiccups and I'll begin with the woolly mammoths arose about five point. One million years ago in Africa according to the curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated throughout Europe Asia North America. Their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing the woolly. Mammoth we know today. They began roughly two hundred fifty thousand years ago. Mammoths went extinct about ten thousand years ago. Hoops that's the first scientific hiccup more like three thousand five hundred years ago. Scientists now believe in isolated population of mammals persisted on Wrangel Island off northeastern eastern Costa Siberia and deep in Canada's Northwest Territory and World Heritage Site than Hani Valley. They were there until about three thousand seven hundred years ago. The ten thousand year more of extinction is in most textbooks though. But let's take a closer look at that date. The prominent theory that made it into most textbooks and the cyclopes. Pedia is ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through Eurasian orth America driven by the last ice age. What scientists called police to seen ice age following the food supply? If that's the case that it makes sense that some ended up in the valley because it was never touched by the last ice age and yes sponsor the mammoth have actually been found in that region. But this isn't the first theory published in a textbook as fact that is founded. It's been believed yes. Baited into text books that the continent of at Artika has been covered by ice for millions of years again. Oops scientific hiccup. The Perry reese map drawn in. Fifteen thirteen shows a northern coast of Antarctica. Ice-free the most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be so accurate three hundred years before and articles discovered but that the map shows the real coastline under the ice geological. Evidence has confirmed. How could that have happened or been charted in an ice free age four thousand years ago which is what science states? That was the last time that Arctic was ice free officials. Science has been saying all along that the ice cap which covers the Antarctic is millions of years old. The Perry reese at Arctic amount shows it the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it that could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time. Furthermore accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in that Arctic area the northern tip ended about six thousand years ago the question is who mapped Queen Maud Land of Antarctica. Six thousand years ago which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do that. I want to state at this point. That the Perry map has been validated as being real and brought back to that data. Fifteen thirteen it is not a about that which made twenty years. I pushed office something true. I want to touch on just one. More scientific kick up nestled in the ancient city of Papun Kabul. Libya are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of pyramids each block. Wade from two hundred to four hundred tonnes. Nothing unusual there. The city dates back to five three six ad yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found giant staple liked clamps. That it in place and we're used to hold the blocks together. Wait a minute. How could the indigenous people with no knowledge of metallurgy have created these clamps and worded the metal used for them? Come from? But this isn't the only case of clamps be used to hold giants Jones together and Cambodia's Angor Watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the side of the temple from a nearby mountain bias. Here's waterways close inspection. The stones that are scattered around the side has revealed carved indentations receptacles for metal clamps. Says kind of interesting. How about an eerie coincidence? Just outside the magnificent ruins of anger. What Stanton Asian Pyramid temple known as boxy CAM gone now from? Cambodia travel eight thousand miles to Guatemala and the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at to call is the temple of the Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid Guatemala. The similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that don't exist in other pyramids or temples however most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up to the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on top once there you could see. There's a small door goes inside the pyramid and there's another internal structure that looks the same basically. What you have here is an ancient civilization in Cambodia and another in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles away featuring credible similarities that no one has been able to explain. Thus my idea of being a scientific hiccup because when you read in the textbooks is different than what facts

"We possibly can through not only finances. That's that's actually one of the worst things we can do. Just give them money so we actually do projects where we take. Our employees will close. A restaurant per name will go out and we'll help paint a school or You know rent some pressure washers and we'll just go clean the dog pound you know and right now we're working with a horse. Ngo The open. The these some of these courses get rehabbed that have just been through. Poor education malnourished. You know these horses are beautiful creatures and we make sure that that that could save up. Of course it goes along with the country Texas attitude. Too right yeah well I am. You're also on in a totally different landscape Specifically you know people. Keep telling me about this volcano. You're going on you. Tell us more about that. She's yeah so the first two years. I was in Guatemala. Was a tour guide man. This is funny. This is cool and you always have to bring. According to the government you have to bring a local guide up to the top of the volcano with you as a you know how for the the local economy And every time I went up to the volcano when I was working for this tragedy had volcano at least two to three times a week right and every time I went up there the local guides Roy varying down a little bit and they'd put their sandwich for lunch in the mall. Kato they pull it out a bill steaming hot so we started doing a two in one day. I brought up an infrared thermometer. And it's sitting there and it's reading like two hundred and fifteen degrees What's going on here so I got a camera together and we decided Me and my wife decided we were just GonNa take some some meat up. We did the whole the whole journey with a big group and we buried the the meat overnight and pulled it up. The next day was tenders. He can imagine that was beautiful and that was A. I'm guessing the Parker. Whoever controls the volcano had to kind of prove that Cook it question? No it's it's more of an open system. Yeah they'd need to approve it We did we've we've done one on if you've okay knows and we did have to get approval for some of them but this specific. Whoa KENO. I believe is a national park. It is run by the Tourism Organization But it's not as regulated. You can almost do whatever you want up there. And so were you. Did you wrap the meter? Did you build almost like a chamber and then coverage not just wrapped Dug a big hole and because the volcanoes it's just inactive it. It's not dormant yet so it's inactive meat it's got a hot core and The last went office. Nineteen seventy six And actually if you watch the video it's on our facebook page if you watch the video of of the volcano cooked it we did. There's another volcano right next to it. It's actually active. And he goes off between fifty two hundred times a day. It's just constantly going on. Wow Big puffs and if you can imagine like The original atom bomb imagine that one of these volcanic eruptions fifty to two hundred times of Day as about three times the size of whether that ables so these are big eruptions that are going off right next to us like right by mile from US everything to see and hear it through a here you can feel it you can feel the heat coming off of it by as this thing just does all his act another up into the air and is beautiful. It's incredible experience. And so you know because the book as we were on to Okinawa next to each other we were on the one that's just inactive so so the hot core and it'll it'll go off again someday soon maybe and a still hot barbecue hot. Yeah it's cool. I've been meaning a lot of guys from Mexico who are learning to barbecue. And we've been talking about the COD. Cina which is like a cooking in a box or burying old barbecue elegant. The cow had gray and bearing in the ground. So it's interesting to see how even though it's turned into metal tubes that idea of like creating a hot kind of hole and then burying things is still alive. I mean even. I interviewed a Daniel Brown Brown's barbecue a little place actually in Boulder Creek. Like off of a corner bar is. I don't know if you you've been in that area that he He is a descendant of one of the first free black colonies in Texas and they learned from the guys from Mexico to bury it and that turned into stone pits like Wayne Millers and so. I've been kind of hunting down these ideas. We who knows where barbecue started. Or if it's just a cycle where everyone just kinda cooked with fire but it's interesting that the digging the hole in the ground is still kind of you see it in in Hawaii all over the world and you're doing it with a volcano. Yeah that's exactly right. I mean we're using kind of internal core instead of putting stuff on top. Yeah but that's that's interesting You know going back to the roots. I think is what we're all trying to do. You know there's some new modern cooking techniques but really like to get that texture and get that real science meat science the more back to the roots. You go the more you're GONNA achieve the results you want. I think that's so cool. You See said it. Just kidding get into it like that one. I'm sure you learn a lot of history of Guatemala. Just being there people probably tell you all kinds of stories. Yeah The big thing. Guatemala's the banana leaf wrapping in reading things in a banana leaf heard so they've got tamales and they've got certain things erupted banana leaves and cook. And what's cool about a banana leaf? Is it so resilient you can throw in Italy right at a fire? And the protect whatever's inside of it. Let's cooking with that so we can play without a little bit here and there one of the things that I become a real big fan of his What they call a caveman steak or the cowboy steak or they're cooking it right on the cold sear it as one of the things that if you go online and look at some of our videos at some of the things that I really like doing getting right on the coals. Have you ever raptor brisket on banana leaves? And so the foil Having your might be a little genius man. Yeah I mean it's probably more expensive than the foil. I'M GONNA. I need to write that down. That's that's an interesting idea because it makes a lot of sense what you want in a foil which I think could achieve is. You don't want there to be an air gap between the foil and the meat that dries the exterior part of the meat out right. You do want a little bit of crunch The you know the Exterior Bark and you wanted to be a little bit dry. But you can achieve that in other ways so maybe wrapping An entire brisket in a banana leaf. That's you may go man when you make it You'll have to let me know on the plan. A trip do it is so cheap and easy to get to Guatemala right. Now you're in Texas you fly to Houston returned a half hours from Houston by plane. It's it's so easy to get their sounds like the shows. Go Damola you better. You better come to mind spot you know one of the best barbecue on the world is one. I've heard this whole package is so it. Is You know your hat on humidor calling? Lena yes what can you tell us about that smoked with would okay? Yeah so we use White Oak. It's a white oak is one of those rare things men that if you if you can get a good treating a good dry it a good density good moisture content in your would you can just make some beautiful barbecue and Arwood provider Guatemalan nailed. It absolutely nailed it. I work with him on how to get the exact moisture content that we want the right color that we want we get the right density and we actually get to would see one that's a drier and one that's a wetter for longer For the rest of the day and we never have to touch gas. We never have to touch Schiller. Trysofi never have to touch charcoal We are a hundred.

What do you call it technical nine. That sort of message? I six, yes. I said yes, alone. All that plastic. Yeah. So so what's what's happening that really interesting because you have the large current that's coming through from the Atlantic into the Caribbean. That's what's bringing all kinds of assets, aspects like sarcasm and more and you seeing animals using that current as well in that migrations. But when it hits northern Honduras and that Gulf of Honduras reach and between believes watermelon, Honduras, it creates his Geijer. It's like a counter Geijer. And what that does is that just. A concentrates, a lot of the debris that's coming out of a lot of rivers in this particular area from southern Belize, Guatemala and northwestern Honduras. And so what that lady came across was just as confluence of both current Giro and a loss of debris in plastics, coming out of many of those rivers. And you know, those plastics actually have an impact on the marine wildlife that we work with, especially the sharks in raves. We have found plastics in these animals, and we're, you know, we're concerned about that. The biggest threats to sharks in raise in our region is actually fisheries, and that's what we're really trying to work against. Mitigate the threat from by encouraging people to take part in this incredible broad citizen science research, explain the citizen science project. So you know a lot of folks had these. Wonderful. Booed counts. Everybody goes out for the Christmas bird count, or for example, Fiji as kinda laid the path with their shark count in Fiji and everybody at a certain time of the year goes out and counts the shots account surveys. And you know, we thought here, we still have considerable shark fisheries ongoing, and and now doing cluding raise as well. And yet at the same time, these animals are bringing in absolutely millions in tourism. In fact, we did the survey and one of the things that we're trying to do is with this particular funding from world nomads, we are hoping that we'll be we'll be able to do this large scale, deep analysis of this incredible survey that we've done with so many visitors in believes about their perceptions on sharks and more. And so what we're hoping to do is galvanized the tour operators guide all the tourists, many of the thousands of students. We have worked with in Belize and get them out there counting the sharks in the race and feeding in the data and getting gaining a better understanding for hot spots for these animals and really showing their interest the care and ultimately their support for their survival.

And they are all in shelters while we look for land and I'm built them home. So I've been coordinating volunteers going out with supplies, trying. To find land and get fundraising for building houses and stuff. So it's been really good j.. So it's a, it's a mess you wrote then when you're hitting into a disaster area to help mop-up biggest issues, I've had twins quakes and stuff before he's in Nepal after the quake Bab, but this is the entire towns buried and Ashish. So two story houses that just disappeared. So people can't go back there either. So we need to find the new land, new jobs, new houses, keep everyone together, like it's really been quite the f. it. The tough thing is people lost like that birth certificates, and that Bank card's in any proof of who they should. They also get access to anything even if they have money in the Bank.

Yeah, I'm helping people at the same time and I was a travel agent back in England. So I love coordinating everything. It's kind of what I love doing the organization stuff. So, and then Napoleon is during a little bit of the. And then when I was hit, there was a bit of a vacuum of power and I managed to meet some people do some networking straightaway, so I could connect people, of course, the city together or someone would be like, oh, I need not just says or any Blunkett's, and I'd be like, oh, I know exactly the person who can donate them. Just kind of put people together. What was It was the. the time that you got involved in this. The in twenty sixteen. So it was about nine months after the disaster. I went Iran volunteered with Ohio who American NGO who doing some work over there, and I joined the demo team which was amazing. It's should be amazing. Louis job was going on knocking down all the damage buildings so we could rebuild. So we just kind of went in. We got training how to do everything safely and we would wear a hot hats and gloves and safety web that we would just go in and kind of Riffa three story house that was damaged signaling into those articles that you've written force. He mentioned during off to the volcano. There were two story houses that would just fully buried you Ronning about the treasures of Guatemala with it any ancient sought. So I shouldn't men might things that were affected no fear on to to towns which rub most shantytowns though on the slopes of the volcano Antigua aware I am now, it's an hour away and it was raining a lot of Ashdown, but it wasn't actually affected in any way by the volcano. So a lot of the old beautiful buildings will. And there's plenty to say Shannon who shutter to earlier on in the podcast talked about Guatemala's natural beauty and again, you'll contributing an article for us on that. So meet all these disaster. Can you paint a picture of Guatemala's beauty. Yeah, I don't think I've ever been to a country that's as beautiful as one of Allah. And a lot of it is from the volcano as well because they just create this immense backdrop to every way you are. You're and make acid lamb which is beautiful, big lake surrounded by volcanoes mountains. If you're in Antigua, you've got these crumbling Chechens from the colonial years, and you've got these beautiful volcanoes again that this foursome hike. You can do from Antigua Kudaka tonight. Anger where you go and stay overnight on the slopes of the volcano and actually St. it erupts against the night sky low. Now it feels a little. It's not. Don't think right now. They have really good local guides who do everything everyone's in touch with the tourist police who closed it for a couple of weeks after the vocab and went up and clip pass and everything.

It was a little bit further than some people like we were not close enough to go get with a stick, but we were able to grow some marshmallows in the crevices. So you knew there was a lot of heat coming up, but when she got down the side of them mountain, she only narrowly missed like massive blisters under feet because she had all the rub. I was gone. I could see her socks. She was walking down the benefit. Yeah. Shooting? Oh, I have very thick socks on as well, but there's a peak of the shoes almost lift to them. So now it's pretty amazing. It's lot that must've heard with pretty pink pink socks. I reckon they would've heart rate on pink. Then he's in China. So when you planning an itinerary, what you really want to be doing is chatting to somebody who knows what they talking about. This is why we catching up with Sarah from a tricks because I plan on Tina Aries, but they were all travellers. Am I right? This era? Yeah, that's absolutely right. All of our travel plan, our experts because they've actually done it. Well, what we do is we customize every trip based on what each particular person or family or couple wants to get out of their experience. So we listen, we talk with people, we meet with them. They talk one of our travel planners. They tell all about the their things that they wanna hit on their trip, and you know, kind of how how they want to have their experience. Some people wanna do it really bare bones. They want to not stay. They want to stay with the locals they want to travel for as long as possible. So they're really working on it by jet. And then you have other people who maybe have less time maybe have some kind of a situation where they need to be in a place. It's more comfortable may to go traveling for work. So we customize everyday tin array based exactly on what use civically want to do. One of the examples you gave to me was if you planning a trip from the US to Peru to walk think coup trial too much you pitchy which we've said in previous episodes is almost be love to death. Why not plan a stop ivory in Guatemala and hike Pakeha. Yeah, that's exactly right. So I think a lot of people when they're thinking about traveling to South America, they think, well, I just want to get where I'm going and Dubai might track there a couple of popular ones. Macho pictures also showed her Di, Di, Columbia, Israeli popular and Columbia. I'm sorry, Guatemala is a great stop over on your way down to either one of those tracks because Guatemala's a country that's really great to see by land. It's actually when we talk about people going to not region of Central America alive the time we'll tell them don't fly into the one place you wanna see fly into one city and fly out. Another because there's so many remote and beautiful places in Guatemala that you can't get you by air. So it's nice to say, start in south southern Mexico, Chow around chop bus goes by land through Guatemala to ah Salvador, and then fly from there. Not only could you stop over in Guatemala City on your way down to Prue Columbia, but you could get three additional countries in there. You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a fantastic experience. Well, that's exactly right. I was looking at trips when we when I knew resume talking with you as I was looking at central that included Guatemala. And one of the sample trips we have on our site right now is it's seven cities in South America, including Wata Mollah city. So Guatemala City Colombo talk Columbia Santiago Lima, and that's starting in any in Miami, and it's between sixteen and seventeen hundred dollars. So you've got seventeen. Seven cities for seventeen hundred dollars. It's pretty affordable, but tell us about Piquet. They'd say that it's, you know, you compare to metro pitchy. Tell me about it..
