"Do we rent a car. Do we take uber public transportation. Like how do we get around from the airport to the city and once we get to the city. How do we get around there as well. So uber doesn't really exist in halifax exists. But it's so hard to get an uber and to figure it out. Like i basically tell people don't bother it's just too challenging and you'll be waiting forever the airports actually. It was built really far from the city. 'cause they overestimated how big halifax was going to be. So it's about forty minutes away in dartmouth which is kind of. It's a part of like the larger region of halifax that not part of halifax proper and it's centered away in the forest. It was really poorly built. I'll be honest. It's like a huge dog hub.

"Edges and halifax is the capital city. It's at peninsula kind of towards the southeast end of the area so it's a bit sheltered from some of the win but it was actually one of the places where most of the titanic the dead were actually unfortunately the kind of floated up to the surface there. So it has one of the biggest titanic graveyards which is kind of a random thing considering it was never supposed to go anywhere near nova scotia. Wow we're incredible story remote.

It's kind of like a more like a regional airline. I believe for for canada kind like how southwest started here in the us. So it's not like one of the major airlines but it flies around regionally so if we're coming up to visit halifax would we fly importer or we've we fly someplace else to be able to get there. Well it's actually changed a lot in the years. Since i i went there when i first went there were about. I don't know maybe five airlines that flew there so you get air canada. Which is canada's biggest airline kind of a little bit more upscale but they have a sub section called air canada rouge that's touched cheaper at basically just means that they don't have the computer screens in the seat. Built in the give you a tablet instead so i don't really see the difference. I'll take the cheaper one than there's westjet which is another major airline in canada porter but nowadays basically any flight will go there. there's a ton of flights. Now i think iceland air just launch some that goes straight to europe which is really great. It's become much more of a hub in its own right. And it's become a more of a stopover location that way people can move on to other places in the maritimes can move onto places in the states..

The town of dartmouth on the other side of the harbour was heavily damaged as well but not nearly as bad as halifax as it was further away. At least another one hundred. People died from injuries after the explosion putting the confirmed fatalities over seventeen hundred but it is believed as many as two thousand people might have perished. The explosion cut off europe from the rest of north america because the undersea cables all came through halifax as word of the disaster. Relief efforts were hampered by sixteen inches or forty one centimeters of snow which fell on halifax the very next day. Relief efforts were stalled because are being stuck in snowdrifts. Believe it or not the one group which didn't suffer. Massive casualties was the crew of the mont-blanc itself. Only one member of the crew was killed. Everyone else got off the ship quickly enough and got far enough away to avoid the worst of the blast. They were the only people who knew that the ship was going to explode to put the explosion in context. If you've seen video of the recent explosion in beirut which occurred in two thousand twenty.

Nine hundred seventy three from nine hundred seventy two tonight seventy five she worked with psychiatrists stand ross at the maryland psychiatric research center. We're they did pioneering work with dying cancer patients using lsd as an adjunct to psychotherapy rosie. Joan has continued to work with dying people and their families and to teach compassionate. Care of the dying. Her work in practice for more than four decades has focused on engaged. Buddhism welcome roshii joan. Thank you so much victoria. Very nice to be with you and and to save my old friend. And so i want to begin with quote from one of your books. Being with dying you wrote. I witnessed again and again how spiritual and psychological issues leap into sharp focus for those facing death i discovered caregiving as pass and as a school for unloading the patterns of resistance so embedded in may and in my culture so in addition to all your other qualities you are a wonderful storyteller and i'm wondering if you could begin to bring this into focus for us with story. I'm happy to try now. I remember when stan. I were working with dying people using lsd as an adjunct to psychotherapy There was an older woman who had metastatic breast cancer. We were very close. I i really felt so lined with her. And i think she felt that way toward me as well and at one point she looked at me really strongly just a right deepen divide is and she said you never know what it's like to die and i have to tell you it was one of those moments where i experienced a kind of It was like an arrow to the heart or sort of awakening. She was right. And my role was to come alongside her experience and to have the kind of Internal arms to hold whatever was present for her and i also realized that she was a teacher from me and she really opened the path of learning from dying people on that. I actually the only thing that i could bring to. People who dying wasn't good advice. It was presence. It was Presidents that may be was characterized by care and courage. So i will always feel a bit of love in a certain way for what she taught me and from that point on i felt i was a student to bore die. Rocha john i have to ask you what do you think. The renaissance of lsd in psychedelic. Some it's been a long time coming. And there's a lot of interest analysis the assisted psychotherapy. You still see this useful tool the woman who is the head of palliative care. the Said to me a short while your bet. It just killed her that she could not use that tool with dying patients because the laws prevented a moment. What do you think about. So it's very powerful substance. It's as you well. And they and. I think that i'm from the point of view of the work that stan and i did in the early nineteen seventies with great attention to set and setting also with Stands earlier work in using lsd in a psychoanalytic context with multiple doses of smaller amounts. But he learned so much about the human unconscious so that That was needless to say very important in the attitude that we brought into the interaction with a dying cancer patients. I think it's a powerful tool and as such every powerful tool has great benefits and also has enormous challenges. And so you know using lsd specifically as an adjunct to psychotherapy which was our approach at that time on was done with such Meticulousness such care and we kind of programmed the whole scene if you will for a positive outcome even if during the context of the lsd session itself the dying cancer patient you know encountered difficulties but we were able to text those experiences in a positive way to frame those experiences in a positive way. So i don't feel like the casual use of it with dying. People is recommended. Also i think that bill williams who is part of our project then who is now and has been part of the hopkins east bay project and continues the work Using not lsd but silla cyb cyber is a little more merciful than the quotes singer single overwhelming dose of six hundred micrograms of lsd which produced to a pretty overwhelming effect. So i have a feeling that Suicide been is a better medium and and it's something i think would be valuable to ask bill a his opinion. This is just my opinion drawn on my experience from.
Should Emergency Rooms Be Equipped to Deal with Addiction?
"Visits to hospital emergency departments plummeted. But a new study shows more people than ever are turning up at hospitals seeking help for drug addiction and overdoses. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann found many emergency doctors have struggled to respond. Emergency departments are great at treating things like chest pains and asthma attacks After the pandemic hit. A lot of those people stopped showing up at hospitals. They were scared of catching the coronavirus. But Kristin Holland, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says patients experiencing addiction needed help. So desperately They kept coming. The thing that really stood out to me about all drug overdoses and opioid overdoses. Those were the only two for which we saw. An increase. Holden study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analyzed roughly 190 million emergency room visits. The data shows even people who didn't catch the coronavirus were hit hard by the pandemic. People are indeed experiencing poor mental health, suicidal thoughts, substance use, potentially as a coping mechanism. But there's a problem. Experts say Many emergency departments aren't well staffed or trained to help patients with these kinds of problems. Dr. Mark Rosenberg is president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. Emergency physicians have always been able to treat the overdose, but we did not have tools to treat the addiction. Or the dependency. Rosenberg's organization has worked for years to convince emergency departments to improve addiction care. But he says, reform has come slowly. He points to the fact that most emergency doctors still don't use buprenorphine. It's a drug proven to help people with opioid addiction, avoid relapse. Only one third patients get medications for Opioid use disorder in the emergency department. Experts say regulatory hurdles and stigma around people with drug use disorders have kept many emergency departments from improving their addiction care. Dr Stephen Veal heads the emergency team at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. I think there was a lot of hesitancy because it's not what we've done. It's not what I've trained in, and it seems like somebody else should do it. But I think that what finally pushed emergency physicians out of their comfort zone to do something is just the number of people that we've seen die. After a spate of overdose deaths. Three years ago, Veal changed his department using buprenorphine and also adding a new member to his team. Larry Brooks is a trained addiction counselor who now works with patients in the ER as soon as they're revived the overdose patients that comment to an emergency room They're at their most vulnerable. They're at their lowest point that they've ever experienced. You know, the you know, been dead. Or at least near dead. And brought back to life during the pandemic. Brooks Hospital has seen a new spike in drug cases, Brooke says. It's made a big difference. Having an addiction program in place. This is the best time for us. As health organization and a community as a whole. To make an impact and say, Look, somebody is here. You're not going to get kicked right back out the door and go into withdrawal and have to find something else and then be back here in two hours, But experts say emergency Department addiction programs like this are still rare. CDC researcher Kristin Holland says she hopes data from her study will convince more hospitals to change our takeaway from this is meeting people where they are and if people are coming to the emergency department for these outcomes, that's where we need to meet them. Well, death from covert 19 have dropped from their peak. The CDC has fatal overdoses nationwide keep rising with more than 220 drug day. Brian Mann NPR news

We are learning lessons from the people in our allies all the time. Obviously a baby newborn needs everything from somebody else right but then eventually they start to mimic monday that their learning lessons as a toddler. Or you know the the eight year olds trying to shave like dad. Pretend right. we're learning lessons all the time. That's all part of education. Education is super critical.

Idolizing grades you remember what she got in grade seven math. No but i can say shirley was good.

They got into it for the right reasons. The system is not designed. Well if i and embrace that students are getting lost you know. They're kind of the mediocre student. They're not the troublemakers.

That are just on their journey so age as canvases. I mean we feel like we've painted a picture but it's probably the corner of a much larger painting and it's been a great revival.

It doesn't seem to make much sense and if it happened days after couldn't have been that this was a pathogenic priming we were just talking about certainly could be but at the end of the day realize that this is not a secret the who has warned does not have evidence that any of these covert vaccines prevent people from passing a virus onto other people and they require the same precautions. So whether or not you get the vaccine the jab the inspire experimental injection. You still have to quarantine. You still have to wear masks or argue that they tell you still have to. I don't think you should at all. I think there's a lot more happening here.

How to Make Your Website Accessible to All
"Hello My name is Jeff White. And I'm the CO founder of Kula Partners, a marketing and web design, and Development Agency based in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. We work primarily with BT manufacturers located throughout North America and I'm also the CO host of a podcast called the Kula ring where we interview those manufacturing marketers and learn about their successes and failures and the things that they're most interested are excited about. But today, I'm here to talk to you about how to make your website accessible to all. It's a really important topic and not one that a Lotta people understand or even know. The importance of. But the fact of the matter is. Over thirteen percent of adult Americans have some form of disability with vision and hearing loss being the most prevalent and in this day and age there are actually lawsuits being levied against organizations that do not have. Websites in fact, the same laws that apply to accessible places such as having wheelchair ramps or accessible washrooms the ADA. With disabilities, act applies to the web. So what are we going to talk to you today about how you can structure your site in a way? So that is going to be available and accessible to everyone and I'm GonNa show you exactly what you can do in order to make your site available to all. With thirteen percent of Americans having disability, and the fact that in many beat be sales relationships having eight ten to fourteen. Members of buying committee. There's a very real chance that some of the people that you're trying to sell to actually do have a disability and as such ensuring that your site is available to those people is not only the right thing to do but it also may impact your ability to sell to the companies that you want to sell to. So, let's talk about that. From a foundational perspective. One of the very first things that you need to consider when you're building an accessible website is that your navigation is clear and concise and that it makes sense and adds value to the content on the site. Many. People when they're putting together their information architecture, there's main sitemap navigation? Used general categories such as products services about us, things like that. But those don't really begin to describe what kinds of content you're going to find underneath of them. and. I often urge our clients and others that we work with to use more descriptive language that talks about the actual categories of products at the top level of their site. This ensures that upon first glance or I read through of those navigation categories that someone can actually get more information about what it is that your company does or cells. So I would encourage you to put those key categories into the navigation to ensure that it actually makes additional sense to someone who's breeding it or viewing it for the first time. While it's very important for your navigation to be well-structured and for the link names to be relevant and descriptive of the content that people are going to find behind them. Structuring the page hierarchy of the site is of equal importance. And not only does this help to organize the content within the site, but it also helps to ensure that visitors to the site are able to find where they are in the overall site structure. You need to add signposts, breadcrumbs, and other elements help people exactly what page people are on within the site and what category of content they're looking at it in. This will help them ensure that they know where they are spatially within the site. One of the great things about using semantic. For your navigation is that not only are you going to make it easier to understand in use for all of your site visitors, but it's going to have a positive impact on your on page search as well. So as you're creating this navigation, the second thing that you need to consider is that people with certain disabilities are going to have a hard time navigating the site with traditional tools like track pads and mice, and touch. They're going to be using screen readers and other assistive tools. And they need to be able to move through the site in a way that isn't necessarily the same as what a sighted person would be able to do. So, we like to employ something called keyboard navigation that allows a user to quickly skip past all of the chrome or navigational elements that they can get right to the meat of the site this happened by hitting the tab key and allowing somebody to actually skip directly to the content within the site, and if they choose not to do that, it will actually read to them what the different navigational elements are. So implementing keyboard navigation is one of the quickest things that you can do to actually make your site accessible. If you're looking for a guide to all of the requirements for website accessibility you need look no further than the website content accessibility guidelines or why Cag-. This is a list of all of the available accessibility features and things that need to be built into your site to meet or exceed the accessibility standards. There are currently two core levels that we are concerned about, and that's Aa and. AAA. AAA guidelines actually add additional scope for higher level contrast, as well as devices and considerations for those with cognitive disabilities, not just hearing or sight. And there are two different levels of this. The AA guidelines have less stringent contrast requirements. In. Small text. It's four and a half to one in the triple A. Guidelines looking at a difference of seven to one. So this insures that text that is smaller than eighteen point in Roman or fourteen point in bold has sufficient contrast between the foreground, the background. So as to be legible to those who may not have the ability to see it as clearly as those with regular normal site.

AI Tries to Save the Whales
"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

They experience in their work service to others. And it has been an extraordinary experience for me because one thinks that being a good person opening one's life to a world of service whether you're a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer and educator, or even a parent that this is work that is continually easy, but it's not necessarily a so, and so I began to look at the consistent patterns in relation to states that are considered to be virtuous like altruism or empathy or integrity and respect and engagement and discovered that. That there are shadow sides to these important human capacities, and that the shadow sides are often a source of great suffering, not only to those who are serving, but to those who are being served so I wrote the book I wrote the book in part because I also saw that the lever or the means of transforming the shadow side of these virtuous states is compassion, and so the last section of the book. It's you know is about compassion, yeah, and you. You just mentioned the edge states, and you talked about being at the edge can either gives us great potential for growth, or for suffering, depending on how we face our situations, and you also mentioned that like our toughest challenges can be our most valuable source of wisdom. I'm so curious about what is the difference between people who fall apart when they're challenged in these situations and the people who do become wiser, and who are able to grow. How do you think about? About that I don't know what the common feature is. Because what I've seen is that this potential for transformation exists within all of us and I think that's really important for all of us to understand that we all have this capacity to actually shift out of these conditions, and to that caused us so much suffering, and in the process of shifting to actually become stronger as a result of this transformation process. In my experience, it can happen to any kind of person. But that shift also involves as I said before opening up the experience of fundamental compassion, and when I talk about compassion, I'm speaking about this capacity to actually attend to our own experience into the experience of others as well as to have the intention to actually transform suffering and various other qualities, which I described in relation to compassion, but it's like in our day profundis in our deepest most difficult moments. This is where and Rebecca Sola talks about this. There is hope in the darkness.

I Look Patricia as someone who has. been through a lot in relation to my own work as a time of kind of it's an experience of building character if you will when we fall over the edge, find ourselves in great difficulties, and we managed to pull ourselves out of the difficulties, and as a result of that, we're actually strengthened, and we have more capacity. There's

Don't Let This Crisis Go To Waste | Roshi Joan Halifax
"Our guest this week is definitely not arguing that the pandemic is a good thing but she also believes that we shouldn't let a good crisis go to waste as they sometimes say in politics. This is a wakeup call. She says a chance I to really take a beat and ask ourselves what actually matters. How do we want to do this? Life both individually and as a culture her name is Rashid. Joan Halifax PhD. She is She's this is our second appearance on the show. She is a major figure in the in the American Buddhist seen. She's a Buddhist teacher. As an priest anthropologist a pioneer in the field of end of life care. She's the founder Abbot and head teacher at. Up Institute ends then center in Santa Fe New Mexico. She was speaking to us from her bedroom. There for this podcast and her motto for this crisis as you will hear is strong back. Soft Front. Chill. Explain what that means and much more. Here we go. Joan Halifax Super High Dan. Where are you? I'm in my wife's closet. I could make a comment about that. I mean you're in a safe place. You can make any comment you want. I. I am in a safe place but I have to watch out about my comments broadcast out there. I feel a little embarrassed sometimes. Fair enough fair enough. Let me start with a question. That may historically pre-crisis was perfunctory question. But actually now is a very interesting question which is how are you well? I'm actually fine. I was fine pre-crisis and in the race in the middle of this thing. I'm feeling very fortunate to be sheltering with twenty four people at the center and having a strong practice and also having the opportunity to cook food for homeless people which is delivered safely and also the kind of zoom world which I was not particularly involved prior to the crisis talking to the vacuum on zoom. It is really kind of bizarre situation. But I'm getting more comfortable sharing the Dharma to the zoom space. So it sounds like you're doing fine but what are your observations about the state of the world? That's a small question. Well this podcast. You can answer for as long as you'd like yeah. I'm very interested in what is happening. I will say that I feel like I was born to be in the middle of this mess. It's kind of charnel. Ground a global charnel ground and I also an anthropologist and a former lifetime so it's just for me an incredible process that we're in where we're reflecting the aspects that have been written about in terms of what is right of passage. We're seeing it at a global level and I don't know what the outcome will be one of the things that glassman she taught me was to really sit with not knowing and we're in this experience of radical uncertainty right now. There's just no way that we can predict what the outcome of all this will be. You know although there are intimations from and others about the possibility of a pandemic but I think you know there's a kind of global oblivion that has been operational for a little bit too long suddenly. We've gotten this invisible wakeup call and it is fascinating and it is frightening. And it is compounded by the fact that literally millions of people are in social isolation and it is as I said an opportunity for us to look deeply at our lives on our lives in relationship to people who are less Economically could I say stable affluent and also to look the effects of our lives the environment? So you know as I said Dad. This is like a right of passage where we're in the first phase of that rite of passage and rites of passage were described by. Arnold Van. Hannah who was a Dutch ethnologist. Who wrote a very important book? In the Nineteen Twenties on rites of passage and it became the model that anthropologists mythologised used to actually look at the contours of transformation and transformational processes that individuals as well as cultures. Go through and Ben Hannah Fascinating. Enough identified the first phase of a rite of passage as separation. And we're in it. I mean our experience of social isolation is an absolute perfect conditions for us to withdraw from our ordinary lives. Our normal lives to be put into solitude so to speak and to not have access to others or to our habitual ways of living and consuming. That have been part of our lives forever. So we're in the phase of separation and then then describes the second phase and that phase is called the threshold experience and the world the word threshold. There's the same feeling and meaning as the word thrash and I feel like we are globally. Being thrashed economies are being thrashed the corporate world. Not so bad. Maybe that it's being thrashed but also people who live in communities of poverty material poverty. They are being thrashed and our racism is becoming much more visible and as well. I think we're at a time where we are. In a certain way seeing the dissolution of a how you could call it exactly but the dissolution of a world that has been built out of an unjust economy that has had profound environmental implications.
