"A third person then. I would mention an artist. She works with with sound but also the voice. When i miss alien laud a. They stood very long name. She was really working as with music and also dj -ing but has ended up building up an octave stress than see just in altima small island in northern norway. I really think she makes beautiful projects. For example she made the performance in small bod which is a part of norway islands. Far out in the ocean where she was part of the card festival the the thing should it was of course there were people coming from different places in the world to be the but she just brought the people are the audience wither out into the ice and snow and they had just had the walk and what she wanted them to do was just to listen that the whole performance and i mean this is super about the response system. The experience that the people have had had just by doing a simple thing as just being quiet. Open your ears and they had the app very very existential experience marvelous. Last question i ask is. And i'm phrasing this in two different ways. You can make your decision on how you want to address this either. The best advice you ever received or some advice that you would like to give to the next generation of in your case curator's or artists. I'll have to say he opened. This is a bad thing. But i think that at least my Think to bring with me into when i'm working is to be very open because it sounds lame but it's it's hard to be open actually even you're working with our and especially if you're like me you try to go into in your community or work with people that you're not really into what you do and you you also get a lot of both strange questions than also shape than it's just. You really need to be open. And also there to be vulnerable when you we multi to and i think it's a little bit of a hard question. Actually you should prepare me for that. It is it is a difficult question like if somebody randomly said. Hey what's your best advice. Be like no clue. Now that was. That was the first thing i was thinking about the asked me and it's not very clever answer. That's the most important thing at least when we work with artem with people is too big and i mean reopen right. Thank you very much for your time. Thank.

"We also have the certain level also language in common and that this unity's still still is important so in a weather. Nordic ministry of culture condo represents nordic family in a way. I know this was really an important thing in the eighties. And the starting on the night this but the nordic became a little bit wishy washy and i think at least for the oxygen artist really would like to be international and you know there was thinking that plus something different from being. You're like nordic or you were international. So they weren't interested in being identified as lordy. You wanted to be part of the rest of the artful in way so these kind of nordea. Collaboration wasn't really so strong anymore. But maybe ten eight lost years. It's really become more and more potent again. I think that we really see that that. The nordic also has something important for us and that's of course with the social democratic ideas. I mean it's like yeah. We need this neighbor and common culture to have a focus. Only okay so. I was just asked by the ministry of culture two seats in that program and we gave money to applications. So this is what north culture point that that granting system. It's a cultural program that grants money. It's amazing i was. I had looked at it and it's astounding. I hope some point to be able to apply for something from it. I should and i think at end..

"Sure well of course it very much in connection with what we do. I mean in the outfield. And when i was working with both with salt and with the festival luthan fulton which has a long history. You get this awareness. About of course the biennial culture people are traveling so much to see you bring up all these important questions all the time but at the same time your way of living or your way of structure is not supporting this at all and i think this is kind of mirroring. Of course. I mean everything how we live in the world today and to kind of look forward and of course we were very much inspired also to look back. It's indigenous people also been working for example living in the region of the north thousands of years. And how is it possible to actually samis. Yes in my part of the world. they're coal. Samis and debatable. I mean for such a long time to live like this. Maybe it sounds of course very romantic and of course you don't have some is don't live like this anymore as they did before but at the same time it has to do with being able to do it they have been. And how can we do it today. An oiler lives are always has kind of build up around expansion of course consumerism. All these things. It's really really hard to change. And i also believe that art is of course is very much part of this in terms of entertainment consumerism capitalism. It's new stuff all the time. For example working with It's produced new things the whole time when i've been working with public art projects for example institutions. In no way. You have this that you can bring in art. When the government is building new official buildings there are also certain. Watch for arch. I have really been trying also to than here bring in That already exist. You know so. It's always about producing new stuff but also to think how can we also reuse art in the way how can we reuse projects by artis. An artist produce stuff all the time and it's shown once and never again is calm and i think this idea bouts do sing. Production is really kind of ahmad hamster. Wheel that we really need.

"I think i'm so much looking forward this to be over sad. It is indeed. Yeah there's a lot being mistype. I'd just literally yesterday. The museums just opened up again and so finally got out to see my first exhibition in probably nearly a year and a half. Now yeah at the other side of that. We really really feel about this things now and we do understand how much it means to us. So i heard a lot of people say yeah really needed. You know this wakeup call in a way. Maybe also to bring some appreciation in value. Back to what we do. And it's not just about producing an producing producing. Because i think maybe in twenty nineteen that's just exhibition exhibition on exhibition. Is you know things things. I'm a huge fan of quality over quantity but that hasn't sadly been the truth because a lot of this sort of shutdowns lockdowns and all this stuff around the world ended up making people very very productive because they had more time and they were working almost more during the lockdown than they were when they had fulltime jobs that they had to physically go to all this guy stuff. So i'm not sure i mean in many ways it did slow us down and create an appreciation that i think will will be a nice return to but on the other hand i think a lot of it. We've been i like. I've been busier physically doing work. Whether it's the podcast or whether it's my art work or whatever. I've been busier during the lockdown than i was prior to but i think that's great i totally agree with. I think a lot of artists now talk to had a great time because they have had time to be in their studio. You know so without any breaks so this is a very positive. of course. i'm more thinking about the institutions productions monthly artists necessarily. But i mean that we are continuously being cutoff in our thoughts so actually how this continues thoughts. We have been able to do that now. Maybe for a year. I don't know it has been a nice time of of pause and reflection a lot of institutions. Were able to close down and do repairs in sort of rethinking and revise and come up with new strategies and plans and stuff switz- it has been very beneficial for many people in the world for sure That sounds really bad. The way that just came out but many creative people and institutions. It's been a nice useful break for sure. Of course it's also been tough the relative artist with New try to do work in you have to do homeschool. I also believe that there are people that also had a hard time. I mean i had two deaths in my family in the past year like i. I totally understand about the hard times. People are having but some people have been. It's actually been very beneficial for. But i think one of the things that were the there's going to be interesting is going to be the the after effects of this. So like while we're in it where all depressed and sad and dwelling and wanting to get back to some sense of normality. But i'll be interested to see some of the the long term effects of this as far as funding support the creation of whether or not even like some people might change their entire isos style or aesthetic of their work from change. You know because now they've had time to reflect forward longtime and then sort of reinvent their ideas. So i'm interested to see how this is all gonna shakeout after it's done absolutely at one point you think we're just so eager to get back to everything that we may be able to jump over the things with..

"Oftentimes you have to adjust the work so that it's not maybe not so unapproachable. As people feel it is inside these institutional settings and to agree and i think they're course mediation is super important is not just dropping things in people's heads you have to be there yourself and you have to be the person in between the artists has to be there and because i think when people meet the artists are cured or people meet people than we can have also talk. But as a curator. I'm not really interested in the art. Object in south. I mean that's more a vehicle for really for people to sink to talk to the aware. And i think in a way because that's obvious that means i know a lot curator's who are mainly not interested in people are interested in the art. I would say that. I'm mainly interested in the people. Well that brings up a great point. Which is how do you find new artists. Because i'm always interested of course. I'm a practicing artist. I always want to know how to curator's find. Artists is a very good question. Of course i mean you find them in different ways. of course you. you're out there. Do you see exhibitions. Read art magazines. But i think mainly for me has also been important relate to be much around in academies and teaching tutorials and really to get an all artists already at that stage where not really out there yet. I have been working with some artists for very long time really starting already when there were students but the Been going on. But i would say that we i mean yeah you research online so right now. I'm working with an artist that i haven't really seen any over her work in re-live i have you know go to know her three internet than than we started to work together so that's also sometimes happened. Well that was going to be my next question which was like how is this whole virtual curated process going with like having to do make decisions and have meetings and stuff and all this via a virtual reality kind of stuff or i guess zoom and all that in a certain way. It's you're able to do stuff the show. I'm working opening next week. I have met two artists in the show. It's twelve artists. And when i was invited to do this exhibition i was going on this research treatment. I was meeting everyone and so on and it ended up. We all been sitting. You know in our different houses studios and everything has just happened digital. And i'm not even there to stole the show. You know i'm very curious. Actually how the show will end uk. And i'm happy be made a book about it so there is a book following this. And we'll talk about this because it's very strange. I achieve that when you work with are to really have to stand face to face and you have to be physically in the space with the art with the people with autism. So it's it's strange. I mean aside. You're able to work but it's not satisfying in many ways..

"Never ever like that would be dangerous. If i thought that i learned. I'm here now the moment it's all about. It's such a humble farm because you can do an amazing show and then you just get up the next morning and things have suddenly shifted or you know or like your coach hears it and is like whoa. What was that transition. You're like. I'm sorry i'm totally like didn't keep it smooth from my like chess voice in my head voice or yeah no. It's endless. which is why it's so fascinating because the deeper and more work you put in memorial. Get out of it and it's just like it's like this like infinity the entity and the pay office that if you do all your technical work then you can forget about it enough to serve the emotion on stage so so first of all. How did that happen. All that was so nice glenda burroughs who is running the a iceland dick historical society of nova scotia which exists because a few. Icelanders came and tried to set up. log cabins in murkland But it was really tough settlements. They weren't there for long But there is now little log cabin there which i sang at the dedication for several years ago. Now so i think Eleanor from mosaic. Fest had reached out to her to see if there's any icelandic singers around and she's like well they're just so happens. Certain person who likes sang the national anthem at our log cabin ceremony. So yeah that was really nice glenda and once i was connected with eleanor and then i was like oh okay i could because i tend to. I would tend to just put a little bit of my icelandic news in on the edges of something else that i was doing but then this is the first time where i was like. Okay this is me. this is actually me. And i went a couple summers ago back to iceland and i went to book guinness. Which is the small town that my great grandfather great great grandfather headed key had come from so i like sat there. I looked at the stone here that they got on the boat. I went to scotland actually and then they came to canada says a lot of voyaging on the and I was just feeling more ready to claim it and Then i'm not even sure how the idea came about to like. Write my own original songs in icelandic like that was like more into the process. Like at first. I was just going to do some folk songs but then i was like what can i do. I just wanted to mix it up. So yeah and i've known mars. The the advocate for awhile. He makes such great beats. I knew him. When i was doing you connection with ryan. And he would come to the hub and he had reached out now and again after. I wasn't working at kenny moore being like. Hey what's up. So so i asked him if he would make some beets and i explained to him the project and just one of those things for like it actually all came together like i surprised myself at this stage. I was really. what's this. what's this going to give. But i ran it by some Friends beforehand and they're like. Oh yeah you should speak some of it and then start singing. So i did mix retirement done before i felt if and then during the bureau covers is like a masterclass in good singing because the resist so the dalai does old. Oh notice actually okay. I really not up is is so beautiful soul like one of the things i whenever i wanna write. I'm always listening to music. And like i don't really writer's block on sounds cheesy when i see sometimes maybe in the mood to right so like when i get there if i listened to that song like he just pulls out. Oh that's beautiful by old. Jesus oh my gosh. Landik accent beer. I like assume so much Cousin my friends called dirac syria off. Episode is literally called episode of pizza'd based on this song. She's like suge food so good she she is the reason she such. A unique voice is that i actually found this out recently. She was going to classical training but she was kind of rebelling against it and she would just go and walk in the wilderness alone in iceland and just make sounds with her voice in so it's like she had like all of nature to commune with and i'm learning a lot about singing from like singing along with her. Like i've been finding some places that didn't realize they had In my voice. So yeah definitely going to keep learning more and more per stuff just to see if i can get inside of like certain sounds. Bjork is not covered very often. What are you doing to your kid. I like the fact that i made them. You know guys like you know if you listen to harass ago you're you're gonna put it in europe twelve or it's so beautiful so beautiful so so you.

"Back to the pop aesthetic. Yeah so i was trying to give people an emotional hook to hold onto. That then was like the reason for the improvisisation and then y- tied up. Do you ride the songs yet. Yeah oh yeah okay. I'm thinking of one okay. So there's one for instance where i'd be at the grand piano just like pounding away and it's like i'm okay with everything. Comb clues well. He's dissolved super. Like like. And i was just go for it and then and then all of these different instruments would just like well like it was a good is really cathartic and fun. I liked it like that's crazy. I was recording sessions for like the hollow more. I never seemed to record the done so many genres of music. Okay well when. I sang in the icelandic opera. We recorded Mendelssohn so i'm on that cd. But i don't i and the airfield to have a couple of cds but i don't know why for some reason i always just like because i get so much from performing live and a trained voice is sometimes tough in the studio. Well it's just harder to record like what are we. So for instance like renee fleming. Who's like the main marijuana. Operatic singers in america win like she'll do album sometimes and i've watched the interviews and she's kind of under singing and like it's just like doing like traditional. I guess like italian. Bel canto was designed. How many centuries like before technology so so it's too loud for these things it's kind of. It's a lot and and there's certain people that know how to do it like I don't know. I just haven't yeah. I just never i. You know what. I'm going to record next week next week. Win the amazing sound guy from mosaic festival. Bryce because we had a really great vibe and he was like hey like do you have a studio. And i was like no. He's like you come record. So yeah so. I'll have something cool so his has one for you though like when you see voice training six something what what does that involve like. Gidez like scales foucault leg. Nats it Upper semi town or like how pavarotti he has. When like. Oh need you that on like every single set. The tone is a window when when the sing from your me what of what do they mean. Because it's good singing is from your lower guts blur. there's nothing like what are you doing. So it all starts there like it's like once he gets to the throat contracts and line you fill your stomach as though it were balloon is one way to think about it and then you kind of press out like i'm just that's what you do. Look like ooh dosing from here from him. I'm here so what he's singing from. Yes yes okay. It's an singing. Should never hurt like if if someone's singing and they get pain. It means that they're probably like if so the vocal chords are so delicate and they're going back and forth together many times a second. I think it's like thousands of times a second for the higher notes. So if you're not supporting it from here these Muscles will take over to protect it instead. But then. Yeah you'll get tension paint so like the the best voices me online trained. Is this guy from lincoln park. He's dead okay. Now just the he. He will seem beautiful. Renault's beautiful how you do that like it's about breath control. It's all okay. I'll tell you another singer thing. So underneath whatever's happening there's just the stream of air like the same like that's one of the warm up exercises you just like just do a of air like she's like safe and then you go to sing the note and you think about that stream of air and you don't change because there's always. There's often an impulse to push the air when you go for higher notes like oh shit but it's it sounds nicer. Everyone can feel it when you keep it even to like. Oh oh oh. And i'm just thinking about that like the whole time. So yeah oh man this like he do not think like who anyone gift janice joplin is another person who can like go from big to small. I don't know if anyone else has pulled off dot degree of it like i. Can't i try singing along but you have to be careful not to like hurt your voice but if if your body's fully committed like she's like jumping along with her band and yeah she can just like like a you know 'cause like how. I know that i'm singing. Notre my tummy's. Because like if i try to do what guy does like into seconds. He hurts yet. You can feel you heard like so. What are you seeing. Stop and take a deep breath. And i'm gonna give you a And you can even just like sit in a chair. Like study with janice jackson and amazing singer in town and she'd be like an just sit in a chair and just come and see how low in the body. You can get the sound like picture it in your legs like breath up through the soles of your feet and then just like miserable. Muggy doing yoga. Yeah there's an element but it's a little bit more active. Because sometimes i would come in. And i kind of go into yoga mode. And she'd call me on it. She'd be like no like an like. Look up going really because you have to give but it needs to be a stable as yoga gives you but then giving it all out to everyone over his indo like you've been doing this for years and years and years. I still doing it like does it ever stop learning how to sing..

"Kind of broke my heart like we were teaming together but it was clear that unlike anyways i found out he had a girlfriend and i was just like. Oh this sucks so instead of getting sad about it. I decided to channel it into comedic art. And that time i decided. Oh i'm not doing music. Like i was actually on a break from music after Moved from toronto to hear just like that's it like a need to clear my head so i was just like going on hikes and hanging out with these really awesome friends of mine there From finland they were here for a while. They were zany so they were kind of bringing that out to you. And i was just like i am going to be the female canadian version of jemaine clement. From that was my goal. Legitimately was partly doing it. Because i thought well musical comedy is a really small niche. So like if. I got anywhere with it. Maybe i can meet him like like. He's the only only celebrity where i like pretty much cried. The day i found out he got married anyway. So yeah and those. I'd definitely wrote only for myself very pure project where i was just like in my room writing these funny songs like to for me. They were funny for me And then that turned out to be probably one of the more known things that have done in my life. Once i started to share it like it just shows if you make art that is truly like that you like and it's for you and there's no other motivation around it. People often want to see that lincoln was really showing something in myself. The hadn't shown poor so yeah. That was really fun. I was on a anna to nova tear for about five years. Sinise i would go to new york city and like dooley's really hard open. Mics like run was kind brutal on you but then coming back it was like i did it. I can feel this room. Yeah like show. Yeah i remember way mason. Like put me on something for his. Nfc class and i was just like Home but yeah. But i earned it like. I just done like ten days of like multiple open mics every night and move. It was it was i gotta a taste and and people were like stay in new york city but like i didn't sleep like that thing about not sleeping. I didn't sleep for ten days. And i got back and i was like. Oh i'm not sure. I could actually do the pace like i'm just kind of sensitive so but it was awesome. It was good. It was very good experience. So what happened in. When did you decide like going back like but you know the thing is. I've said this forever. You only will get a compliment for being funny really funny song. It doesn't matter how well using them. I don't gotta be and that's you know that's what they're there for and which is fine and so yeah like riding that line you know and i think now. There's a lot more women in comedy doing music that it was just like a weird thing like i would show with my keyboard at an open mic. And they're like what are you doing first of all you're not standing up like this is not stand up but yeah it was. It was fun. I kind of. I pulled back well. I met my now ex husband. A wonderful man named brian meyer. Who i'm sure you know super cool this all too. Yeah yeah and another musician and he actually was part of that project and also he. And i started a serious band together. Called mother definitely starting a band called serious. Spent my weeks later because that's materials. Yeah so but yes it was. It was called mother. Mother of girl and i it was a very experimental. Kind of like lots of improv and was doing stuff with upstream orchestra. Now is really fun. And i did actually sing some icelandic for that project. But it would just be like one folk song like at the beginning of the set so when you start learning della wage. Ooh i went there for six months before. Right after undergrad. I had gone for six months to study icelandic in reykjavik reykjavik and also sing in their national opera. Like in the course of course but it was. Yeah it was great and that was really. Yeah that feel good. And so i got good at pronouncing language but then for about you know ten years. I've just been like you'll get a lighter. Easter which means i'm learning because or i'm gonna come to that means and how come here with this family. I'm going to go to most men but kinds of this show but speak english accents and come here coming here today because we want to see you want some coffee.

It's cool so i wrote a very met you. It was seeking to you. I was coin to my show. And you were like a guest on the show before mine and he was like just before halifax pop explosion. Or and i don. I literally don't even jazz fest. Oh yeah. I sang a set. I did a tribute to edith piaf. So like french music last summer for the jazz festival and i was really fun. You're sitting been trying to make this happen to be so let's start with you like saw as a singer. How did it all begin. I started singing. I guess actually in church in london ontario. When i was really little i would sing in chapel at like nine. Am service them. Who made the religious. And then. I was taking piano lessons. But i wouldn't practice so i was like mom and dad. I want to take voice lessons. So they let me switch to that twelve and then i pretty much took voice lessons straight through for the rest of the decade And i've done a lot of different genres like i I grew up listening to my dad's garage. Rock industrial band called the lights which was quite the experience on a wild stuff and then i. I went to toronto to master's degree but the whole time i was there. It was in sociocultural anthropology. Actually i mean it was called. My first degree was at western knows called a scholars electives. I was a total nerd. Like i was just like reading books. Like the university in my doc martens just like no. It took a kind of shape moving to toronto to come out of my shell. Because i started playing in this indie rock band called the airfields. Did you play any instruments joe. I learned to play oregon. So that i could be in the band taken. Those lessons like okay. I can do these like whatever you know. Four or five one so Yeah and then. I was taking my classical singing pretty seriously trying to to doing some operatic competition so that was fine we we. We saw the only place. I know so i watch again a little. Tv but america's got talent. That's where i see. People like do opera were competitions for. Oh yeah there's this whole classical circuit. It's usually there'll be. It's not always through qantas but it's kind of like the qantas vibe where you go and you sing your area and then someone basically marks you and gives you feedback and tell it. How did this coys off both. But i don't There's a lot of different factors like the tone quality of your voice addiction and like how precise doing musically and what experience do you have to beat georgia on something like oh i think you have to. You have to learn classical singing for a long time and then you can start to like teach it and judge it anyway. So so so you did this thing. Yes competitions and i was also singing a jazz with a lot of like humber college kids at these different venues all around toronto so i was like who i.

"In it was interesting hybrid where it would start with like a pop song riff or something like i'm trying to think i can't even sing some and then there'd be like a big Just like wild. Improvisation in the middle and then it would come back to the pop aesthetic. Yeah so i was trying to give people an emotional hook to hold onto that. The reason for the improvisisation and then y- tied off. Do you ride the songs yet. Yeah oh yeah okay. I'm thinking of one okay. So there's one for instance where i'd be at the grand piano just like pounding away and it's like i'm okay with everything. Comb clues well. He's dissolved super. Like like. And i was just go for it and then and then all of these different instruments would just like well like it was a good is really cathartic and fun. I liked it like that's crazy. I was recording sessions for like the hollow more. I never seemed to record. I've done so many genres of music. Okay well when. I sang in the icelandic opera. We recorded Mendelssohn so i'm on that cd. But i don't i and the airfield to have a couple of cds but i don't know why for some reason i always just like because i get so much from performing live and a trained voice is sometimes tough in the studio. Well it's just harder to record like what are we. So for instance like renee fleming. Who's like the main operatic singers in america win like she'll do album sometimes and i've watched the interviews and she's kind of under singing and like it's just like doing like traditional. I guess like italian. Bel canto was designed. How many centuries like before technology so so it's too loud for these things it's kind of. It's a lot and and there's certain people that know how to do it like I don't know. I just haven't yeah. I just never i. You know what. I'm going to record next week next week. Win the amazing sound guy from mosaic festival. Bryce because we had a really great vibe and he was like hey like do you have a studio. And i was like no. He's like you come record. So yeah so. I'll have something cool so his has one for you though like when you see voice training six something what what does that involve like. Gidez like scales foucault leg. Nats it Upper semi town or like how pavarotti he has. When like. Oh need you that on like every single set the tone is a window when when the sing from your tommy what what. What do they mean. Because it's good. Singing is from your lower guts blurred. There's nothing like what are you doing. So it all starts there like it's like once he gets to the throat contracts and line you fill your stomach as though it were balloon is one way to think about it and then you kind of press out like i'm just that's what you do. Look like ooh dosing from here from him. I'm here so what he's singing from. Yes yes okay. It's an singing. Should never hurt like if if someone's singing and they get pain. It means that they're probably like if so the vocal chords are so delicate and they're going back and forth together many times a second. I think it's like thousands of times a second for the higher notes. So if you're not supporting it from here these Muscles will take over to protect it instead. But then. Yeah you'll get tension paint so like the the best voices me online trained. Is this guy from lincoln park. He's dead okay. Now just the he. He will seem beautiful. Renault's beautiful how you do that like it's about breath control. It's all okay. I'll tell you another singer thing. So underneath whatever's happening there's just the stream of air like the same like that's one of the warm up exercises. You just like just do a of air safety and then you go to sing the note and you think about that stream of air and you don't change because there's always. There's often an impulse to push the air when you go for higher notes like oh shit but it's it sounds nicer. Everyone can feel it when you keep it even to like. Oh oh oh. And i'm just thinking about that like the whole time. So yeah oh man this like he do not think like who anyone gift janice joplin is another person who can like go from big to small. I don't know if anyone else has pulled off that degree of it like i. Can't i try singing along but you have to be careful not to like hurt your voice but if if your body's fully committed like she's like jumping along with her band and yeah she can just like like a you know 'cause like how. I know that. I'm singing my tummy's because like if i try to do what guy does like into seconds he hurts yet. You can feel you heard like so. What are you seeing. Stop and take a deep breath. And i'm gonna give you a And you can even just like sit in a chair. Like study with janice jackson and amazing singer in town and she'd be like an just sit in a chair and just come and see how low in the body. You can get the sound like picture it in your legs like breath up through the soles of your feet and then just like miserable. Muggy doing yoga. Yeah there's an element but it's a little bit more active. Because sometimes i would come in and kind of go into yoga mode and she'd call me on it she'd be like no like an like. Look up going really because you have to give but it needs to be a stable as yoga gives you but then giving it all out to everyone over his thing though like you've been doing this for years and years and years i still doing it like. Does it ever stop learning how to sing. Never ever like that would be dangerous. If i thought that i learned. I'm here now the moment it's all about. It's such a humble farm because you can do an amazing show and then you just get up the next morning and things have suddenly shifted or you know or like your coach hears.

"Was just maxing out on his much music as possible. Well because that's the thing. I loved the most in league was fine. I really did love doing all the reading for the sociocultural anthropology degree. It was a specialty in medical anthropology. Actually so i was commuting. Yeah yeah. I was comparing systems of of health. Cross culturally who'll you shoot so like how. How do they treat sick. People in this green like certain eras in china. The doctor would only be paid if the patients were. Well that year is what does she do moving. Because like you know what like kind of looking kinda ducked out you can just go to the hospital like for like really man. I know i mean definitely my mind. I don't like in the us. Unlike they have to kind of plea kinda like fucked up russia. Okay so if i take this medicine how would it be okay for six days by cd swan ability for two days. What i'm going to have money like it's it's crazy to know. I broke a bone. One time i was working for this kind of she. She camp in pennsylvania. And i broke my finger and they were so legit mad at me because it was gonna cost them money. Let's remember like nowhere premiums. I'm not houston speaking like a moral dilemma. That should do. How would you define. How a person is that's true like are they talking study. that was i into it at the time. It was my own personal journey. I actually had a a lot of different hard to understand slick little allergies or like mood and wellness and i did discover like i studied Traditional food ways and found out about like fish oil supplementation like ten years before it was a thing will be like you take fish oil and yeah just like it was my own and i got really into fermented foods and how it's really good for your guts in your bio flora. So yeah i think that's what led me in that direction. The actual project was that i did was on the semiotics of milk marketing and production in modern times. So go do almond milk and stuff like that. Or i feel like i. If i went back to that project i would definitely look at it now because. Yeah we define anything that's like solids that are suspended in a liquid as milk. But there's like all this metaphorical suffering like motherhood and just the way that it was controlled. And you know with louis pastor. We had to start pasteurizing everything. It's the only food product that has to be cooked in order to be sold. So i don't know don't quote me on that but it's one of the unless it's you know been and there's like wild stuff that happens where like swat teams will come into a small organic farms. Because they were not pasteurizing milk before they do. There's this whole underground. Like i used to have a mailing list and we would come out and support these farmers and so i don't know it's just like a big part of my life talk about who settled the podcast because like everybody knows everyone usually for one or two things and then scenes know how gossiping or the like little thing so whatever the book has we block out the thing everybody knows we shine the light or the things people do not. So that's what the name really is about so like you do all these reading all these kids you said. I know it's well. it did. Take me one extra semester to finish. But i finish. Yeah everyone kind of tease me. They're like it. Seems like you're doing everything other than your school but i mean it was the school of life. It was really amazing. I heard a lot of good concerts. I missed a couple of to you. Like arcade fire was just starting up and doing like these little like hidden shows where it was a mock funeral or something i was like. Oh too busy. I didn't even know didn't even know. Yes my favorite bands who like the hidden cameras banned from the year. We were such tough audiences and like young. Toronto indicates like we would just stand there. Your slow which we would stay huge dance where we just have these big sweaty dance parties and yeah it was fun kensington market. And just kinda so you finish. Does this band and like did you write any songs for the band or you just played no. I was writing a lot. And i would not show them to anyone saying Your own voice out there and you know just a little or like i would. You know like one okay. My one friend jason dole. He's great musician. He does stuff at york university now. he came over and i was teaching invoicing. He was teaching guitar. Might be like jason can i. Can i play you song. I would literally sing it so quietly. Long can really hurt. You're doing. I was like okay. That's fine so yeah. I got the fever to start expressing myself. But i wasn't showing anyone. So what was the fire made us on happened. Well so okay so jump a few years. I started my own translation business to support myself translating wayne french and english. Oh how does french conference. Because like i went to Immersion i spent a year in france for university. So we we so you did. What did you do france. I'm studying philosophy anthro and so interesting. All this lean issue sings wild. And well like walter. You did one year in friends. Doing research. And i sang in choir. It was so hard to meet french. People like they leave at the end of events like north america. People are not like you're you're here. I'm on my moped. i'm think so. Luckily this one girl like two or three months in She mistook me for being german and she herself was studying german so she starts trying to talk to major in the house like No no definitely cancer german. I'm canadian and then she just thought it was so hilarious. That like there's this like canadian anyway. So she was my entree into. And then i had this kind of i'm gonna call them posse twelve friends and we all hung out and we would walk in the french countryside together singing in harmony from our like choir.

When i was really little i would sing in chapel at like nine. Am service them. Who made the religious. And then. I was taking piano lessons. But i wouldn't practice so i was like mom and dad. I want to take voice lessons. So they let me switch to that twelve and then i pretty much took voice lessons straight through for the rest of the decade And i've done a lot of different genres like i I grew up listening to my dad's kind of garage. Rock industrial band called the lights which was quite the experience on a wild eighties. Stuff and then I i went to toronto to master's degree. But the whole time. I was there. It was in sociocultural anthropology. Actually i mean it was called. My first degree was at western knows called a scholars electives. I was a total nerd. Like i was just like reading books.

Tv but america's got talent. That's where i see. People like do opera but competitions for. Oh yeah there's this whole classical circuit. It's usually there'll be. It's not always through qantas but it's kind of like the qantas vibe where you go and you sing your area and then someone basically marks you and gives you feedback and tell it. How did this coys off both. But i don't There's a lot of different factors like the tone quality of your voice addiction and like how precise doing musically and what experience do you have to beat georgia on something like oh i think you have to. You have to learn classical singing for a long time and then you can start to like teach it and judge it anyway. So so so you did this thing. Yes competitions and i was also singing a jazz with a lot of like humber college kids at these different venues all around toronto so i was like who i.

"So pablo glad to be able to have you on the program. We had nanny your ceo on not that long ago. And you're the data science guy here. So i want to really open up with you. I say outreach billion dollar company growing very fast fast platform now it's about taking it to the next level with what are really those opportunities in upsides of taking up popular sass product and layering. Ai why is it worth this. Additional effort of of baking a into the mix. Yeah thanks them credit to be here. Yeah it's very interesting. I feel like At outage the moment To build a in a. And i think as you mentioned it does not start as a companion by that's moments Started building a. yeah. I was actually very good. Good moment to start when we already have had a pretty good user base. Yes yes and very active. Here's our base is very important. Bidding this one aspects of companies. We can collect a lot of raw data from those users and head into All a good amount of data available is kind of a requisite for being able to building a into the product and Heads it if it is already had a good number of customers allege amount of data and actually a lot of insights into the problems of those customers more so at the point where the solutions kind of needed to be developed as unjust not just five on customer but but for many customers. That's that's a very good moment or staff to bringing bringing in anything said that opportunities. That is a clear that ability to solve some of the some of those problems customers ahead him at scale. So i think that's gonna ring true for a lot of the audience. I think people will understand like okay. We're gonna use to solve important problems or pursue important opportunities. Obviously some of that you've been able to do just with the assassin platform itself. You know the company itself. Oh well you know here. We have a problem. Okay build a feature. Push this button and it's going to send an email okay. That's that's a feature. He know he didn't need for that. But then there's other kinds of problems where maybe we do need i. Maybe we we. We do need to leverage like you said the data of all these users we have. Do you think about that. There's some there's some problems where there's no reason to use. Ai would be overly complicated. And then there's others where we do need it for you you know. Why is it important to to go after the i. Opportunities there instead of just the additional sas features. You know what what is the. What's big upside here. Yeah yeah look. At the outage three phases. The kind of the evolution of product and filler step is a step before outage before sales engagement products appears self process was very disorganized. It was kind of like what you're seeing. The contacts ends are good. Luck gone closet and it's ready to Plan and farkas kinda process. It's very hard to understand. Buds is a swedish propagates station. So that's spenders asians. That is very important. A dozen telling me the i. And that's what outreach at standardized the sales process secure but then the next stamp is optimization. The way i think about it is that off. You take a tender outage products and then you take your sales process you would. Outrage is great gun around a lot faster however you spend the bad sales processing place. Now you have a bad sales prosperous minor really fast as opposed that is still By the values bedding might shed. He'd use so helga now customers. The ability of the sales process is is. The next step is the look at what is happening. In aggregate in the government hewlett huma even Across all of our customers and tried to use a to come up with this broad acts of communications on the types of fish which start improving the efficiency of the sales process for example if companies especially those companies who did not have an automated kind of as sales and you kind of sales still in the past sales process tends to be very shells To project prostate the few times small number of times but we know from best practice is that eggshell intakes of seven fifteen or even in some areas. Maybe after source you digest extra Prospects so those kind of best practices can be just baked into the product That can be used to discover those kinds of insights so that the second stab the sword step once wednesday were able to optimize the process. A little bit than the step is personalization because even though we can have as sales process which is on average of optimal on average is good in evidence. Specific situation forever sales. You might even for evidence sell them. They can extra little better than average. If you can tailor what is suggested commends Unique skill since disaster unique situation. So that personas asian aspect is bad guy is really an affront and said that he cannot do it without a because the volume of of people themes and update is too high to be able to manually

To other patients rush to his side with tears in my eyes I watched them instinctively placed their hands on his eyes and recite the Shema prayer. At Him and said goodbye I says holy soul entered the gates of heaven. That's like Gamaa. Normally she's in oncology nurse, but back in March, when covert I hit, Israel will head was one of a handful of nurses transferred to the new corona virus warded. Her Hospital shallots Nick Medical Center in Jerusalem. She worked day and night, following strict isolation protocols that meant among other things wearing full protective gear in ministering care via video intercon's. She was often frightened as were many of her patients. One of them was eighty eight year old Alliott Evan who on March Twentieth Twenty Twenty, sadly became Israel's first covert casualty of at home shallots. They will show Lime Methuselah Hullah Evan Evan Bench morning. Wish antisocial anyhow by Damon Asoka de Corps F. When she'd come home after a shift, a hell would often sit down at her computer and recount her experiences on facebook those posts and will link to a bunch of them on our site. Read Lak- diary. This is her reading the post she wrote right after he passed away. I know what the next step is, and I'm already dreading it. Traditionally when a Jew dies, there's a series of rituals including washing the body that take place, but hunter the now with covert. Everything would be different missile heavily. The Ministry of Health has prepared us with instructions on how to deal with disease covid nineteen patients. We are the first hospital in Israel to implement this protocol. Similar to casualties of biological warfare, our treatment of the body needs to be done in a way that will not endanger us. Because of this there can be no purification or Tahara process. This Jewish. Ritual is sacrificed to protect us and everyone else who will come in contact with him? Me and the other nurse Mahal are responsible for identifying him for burial. will be the last ones to see and care for him physically. My dear Aria. You survived the horrors of the Holocaust immigrated to Israel. Established DEMOC deficit family, and your extraordinary journey ends here in this new word. We hoped we would never have to open. The circumstances of your hospitalization did not allow for your loving family and caretaker to be by your side for us in them. This was heartbreaking from the outside monitored you as closely as we could. We were an off as we watch the other patients care for you, keep you company and help you. However they could. They did not want you to ever feel. Are Yet, I wanna ask you for forgiveness. I'm sorry for how we were required to handle your body. We did our best to preserve your dignity and respect you based on the circumstances I know that it was done to protect us. It was a tremendous food and honor to care for you. When you're a final days, you've touched my heart, the staff and the patients that surrounded you. I know your life would spire the rest of Israel as well. Go to your resting place in peace.

A few days later, she posted again this time about two moments one of extreme grief and the other extreme beauty march twenty, eight, twenty twenty. It's been only two weeks since my first shift and Koetter the COVID, nineteen word, and in many ways feels like an eternity. As panic and uncertainty, keep escalating around the globe for me. Personally the pressure and anxiety are quickly building up and it's nothing short of overwhelming. In the span of two weeks, the number of patients in my unit has quadrupled and keeps growing the everyday experiences in the word taking an emotional toll on me. On Friday, a daughter of a critical patient walks into our operations headquarters. Since no family member can go inside the unit. She has come to say goodbye to her L. Father through the video intercom system. She asked me to hold her phone and record their interaction. As I watched her cry and talked her father through a screen I have to physically turn my head to hold back tears. This is heart wrenching to watch I cannot even begin to imagine what it's like for them. At six thirty PM with thirty minutes left until the end of May shift. I'm rushing to finish my last tasks inside the unit. At this point, the moderate patients have all congregated in the middle of the word to do Tabet. I soon realized it's the only permissible Mignon in Jerusalem right now people from all walks of life and across the religious spectrum are singing and rejoicing together as bring in. I! I'm blessed to be witnessing the scene of unity and. I. I already know this. Coming Week is going to present more challenges physically and emotionally, but I know I'm not alone. We're in this fight together. We're going to come out of this stronger and more united as a nation than ever before to stay strong instead home God bless.

"helga" Discussed on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM

"Once info echoes Helga consultants had a cell phone like there was rustling again something dark and I started getting back going to church again got back into the bottle and then it stopped like my Christian faith overcame it do you do you do you use the Jesus prayer to ward off these entities well I say the words per re day Jesus told us all to pray in the stuff I pray with other people to other Christians but his eyes were shielded by god's power through face and so he helps us in that area all right Carl thank you for that I would see any is in Alabama any or welcome to coast good morning thank you Richard for taking my call hello legs AT&T integrated chat with you I've heard you over the years the pleasure to speak with you hello dear you about not coronavirus during all not many people were left in the world most people the one you love this layout and I ended up being the only survivor so that made me judge and jury overall the probate cases the state cases and I just did a summary judgment said okay it's all mine moreover hearing will get just back hello and I feel very familiar where where does the change in the backyard are very remote in the backyard it was a very say and I'll go with mine but it was saying and the last person in the world raising that is disturbing is that a recurring dream manager or was it just a one off I just said that at one time friend of mine told me one time I was going to L. live all of one anything well thank you for sharing that so lex the what do dreams this may sound like a strange question but the dreams wants something from us I mean it are they is it a riddle that that were supposed to try and figure out they are mysterious Richard I I don't know that there's a definite answer to that question I think for a lot of people they do present themselves in the head scratching manner where we we do want to decipher some kind of meaning or wonder what they're trying to tell us sometimes the meanings really aren't that far away I think there's a movement away from the Freudian thing where everything is hidden and you need it here's the mentality that you get to the bottom of it a lot of times I think the key is looking at the emotions that you're you're feeling during the dream and that can kind of open up what what the experience represent to you but like I was saying before I think that should need dreams really run a huge down that there can be all sorts of different types of dreams that read different meanings some can be meaningless they just seem like repetitive things that that are worth thinking about in other things can be quite transformative or life changing and you did you write about the fracture dream state where we're kind of in this hypnagogic state is it your based on your research of your surveys are are people sleep walking more during the pandemic or they sleep talking more well that was the indication I was mentioning before I don't have the exact statistics on on those kind of conditions but the fact that two out of five people in the U. K. a recording sleep disturbances and then that study over at the Italian sleep clinic with people having these nightmares in Paris on the that it seems to indicate that that would be the case that that these odd sleep state that that are these mixtures of of being awake and asleep very well be be more commonplace given the anxiety and insomnia and sleep problems that seem to be on the increase during all of this and once things go back to normal do you anticipate that our our dream lives will go back to normal or or is this kind of up up a permanent situation that's an interesting question I think that our dreams are already pretty bizarre on an ongoing basis so I think this whole idea of looking at green the nightmares with the land of the pandemic it's.

"Extinction billion has a remarkable organized structure but it is basically a massive lines of affinity groups with and demands and the universal commitment to nonviolence one group had the idea to delay a commuter train accounting town in East London violence flat on a protest was dragged off the roof of the train and settled on commuters the BBC was criticized for integrating commuters interviewing police but not talking to testers this action led to much soul searching in extinction rebellion in criticism of the action why block public transport went public transport is a green alternative why block commutes an area of London where people may be online ages zero hours contracts and a likely to lose disproportionately forbade late for work the counting town incident was one the few the goat full media coverage Nora Cox traveled from your to be part of the London rebellion she told me why Laura welcome and thanks for talking to these sustainable futures report so I believe you're a journalist and you decided that your place was at the rebellion in London at the beginning of October did you for the whole week two weeks I was any night that I stopped of the at the International Rene decidedly due to relief reasons by too much time today right and how'd you been on any sort of protest light not before it done small actions in York in the past but they were by no means as Intense Exchange in London it was this the same theme extinction rebellion in different course same I've been involved for about six months now the school strikes and things like that yes yes won't quite big so you decided to go to London what did you expect the process to achieve I expected the protests to achieve publicity ultimately that is the number one aim right now because in order to take action into have recognition and at the moment none of us in exon including myself we see as a problem recognition and paying instead of actually entitled rising Helga things all so did you think that it would build on the reaction Easter I hoped it would hayward how will you actually done that full life on Sunday night And I was that Monday Monday's Dan my rusty often in that arrest arrested on Monday Monday on the first day at three and fourteen because I was there around abolished uh-huh yeah I believe we met actually briefly taught us how this happened when I met you yes he was sitting in the middle of millbank and of people and everything was was very sort of relaxed there weren't that many police around old out later on in the afternoon the numbers did increase a lot so how did it affect you when she saw from the morning it was quite a quiet and there was no great antagonising going on but the problem was the people divers in the road with excluding a handful of others want as we head spiky anything turnabout in despite yet you on the mold waiting Yanti agitate basically and that was that was not the same level of spiking as across that said we would come 'cause we get through the right bulk of wouldn't say for example ambulance during which we all agreed to do next let the ambulance through for all these reasons but then we wouldn't ask him police call street because they had blue emergency lights on which anybody's cocker put the Blue Emergency Light Song Yang to question whether or not that's genuine a few of us were getting quite no no annoy that just wasn't occasion of tactics that roadblock and all day we did manage to hold the road for what it was quite frustrating because wasn't really functioning that well so not as far as that would have been in arrestable situation had everybody banded together and bidden same level of quite quite spiking for few hours eventually police attitude as she say code lasts no more more more more more and they were actually pushing a star either side kind of cooling in on male by tents inventories take down and then we told told back we realize some time now we can put it back again and while other groups and other sites distracting the police that was odd jobs do put up some infrastructure but of course we couldn't get any infrastructure up because things have already being compensated taking away and already lots of police people there so you yeah it was quite difficult situation couldn't foods a food Tent or kitchen or welcome tent to we just had the actual tencent sleeping and I was actually arrested later on the afternoon by not moving from attacked he didn't move I wasn't at hand I didn't move right because earlier on my soul the police talking to people and saying to them you know a few go away will leave you alone but if you don't move gone to arrest you so will you given the opportunity to come out of the tension walk away or multiple times giving up until you were postage I was I was trying to event and I was taken to Croydon Custody Santa where I spent e the evening gene and the morning Tonto they release you nearly free at around eleven.

BP chief backs shift towards renewable energy

"Choo investor resolutions at BP's annual meeting, and Abidine this week, shade high pressure is building on oil companies to take action on climate change political discusses, how the oil companies are responding with Angela Weaver, and blessing hook. Up already the way. People around the work for her life. At the same time, Harmon emissions need to come out at a much faster pace that is seeking. That more energy emissions dot is to charge. That was Helga loaned, the chairman of BP outlining the company's commitment to transitioning to a low carbon energy system at their AGM in Aberdeen. This week shareholders had to climate change resolutions to vote on an epidemic. Edgeley. You were up there what happened. So everyone was waiting for these two resolutions to come up for debate. Now, one was backed by p and brought forward by climate action. One hundred plus which is an initiative, led by group of investors, and they were calling on BP to demonstrate how its business strategy aligns with the Paris climate goals. And now the second resolution was proposed by follow this dodge shareholder group, and essentially this one was different because not only was it calling on the P to set targets for its carbon emissions going forward. But these targets also should include those of. Of its products, so essentially, the emissions of its consumers, and that's essentially what shall has done. That's what shall has agreed to do. Right. But in this case, BP management back the climate action one hundred plus resolution but not the other one. Why was that BP claims that the follow this resolution would not allow for flexibility through the energy transition? They say we don't know what this energy transition is going to look like we don't want to put hard targets are legally binding on ourselves or on our consumers who's use of our products, we can't control. That's what they say. And does that sound like a reasonable explanation to you? So this is where it gets very interesting because most climate activists and increasing the investors say that these emissions from the use of the products are essential to accounting for how we really progress through this, energy transition and oil and gas. Companies must be held accountable for these emissions now. I do have some sympathy for oil and gas companies in the sense that they don't know what this energy transition looks like, however, most people, I speak to you think that BP right now is in the same position that shell was in a few years ago. And at some point they too would also have to include these emissions in some way into their forward-planning. Leslie, do you have any sympathy with bay pays position. I don't know about sympathy, but I think it is hard to account for the emissions of your consumer. So I can see the sort of legality of that narrow argument. I think what's been really interesting, though, is something that Angela is actually written about, which is where the RND dollars are going for these companies, although BP has started talking a lot more about climate change. And they've certainly made it a sort of headline item on their agenda there. Aren. These spending hasn't really followed. Those words. Yes. Exactly. And even in. The opinion piece that Helgoland wrote in the F T, and in his public comments it a, he's very clear that BP's also going to have to transform its business. But what does this look like it's unbelievably murky, we have no idea is he talking about increasing our independent low-carbon fuels and technologies is he talking about shifting towards renewable? It's not entirely clear. What this means in the BP context, and this is what investors really are trying to gain some more clarity on a lot of these invested discussions with the companies have essentially been company led. It's what the companies are comfortable with talking about BP's, not committing to a particular direction. They say we've been there before, under the John Brown era petroleum beyond petroleum. They invested huge amounts in renewables. And they ended up losing a lot of money. And so this was the point that Helga loons made at the GM, as well as in the opinion piece, which is that we want to be. An investable company and I think that was his way of saying, we need to keep on investing in oil and gas. And there is a real dichotomy there because ultimately BP makes money from selling fossil fuels calls emissions, and they don't really know how they will make money if they stop doing that. So I sort of get the sense that, while there's a lot more talk about it. There's not a clear answer of where revenue is going to come from if they're no longer selling fossil fuels on the other hand, you've got companies like shell and hotel. You know, the really going out there saying, we're investing in not just gasp, renewables and renewable power. And this is all feature. But most analysts who look at the sector and even the executives themselves will say to the margins here, incredibly low compared to is stark and traditional businesses. But also, we don't really know what this is going to look like for us. And this is the point BP's trying to make, which is we're not going to go down that path blindly again. Just taking a punt on the huge amounts of pressure from every. Body in terms of crime activists, and the investors who want this investment into the cleaner fuels business and into renewables. I mean Greenpeace this week, blockaded BP's entrances. I was going to ask you about that it was quite an extraordinary defection even for Greenpeace because they actually stopped staff going into BP headquarters Ryan, where it's quite interesting to compare that to the shell AGM which was happening on the same day over in the Hague. And apparently, there were very few protests or any sort of action going on over there, certainly nothing, like staff being stopped from getting into buildings and things. And do you think that that's because shell has been clearer about its determination to invest in renewables, and lower carbon forms of energy, then B P so far? And do you think that BP is worried about that? And that's why it took the steps that it did this way. I think BP's just a different point than shell shell faced this kind of backlash Affi years ago. Let's also remember. That shell is very much a dodge company and this huge amounts of domestic pressure. And this is now only ricocheting around the world, you know, to all the European companies as well as US counterparts, but, you know, the protesters this week were saying to be, you must shift all your investment into renewables, or go bust, but it's not entirely clear if that's the strategy. Yeah. And this is just the latest example we've seen of shareholders, trying to pressure oil and gas companies and indeed coal companies to disclose more about the future plans and targets and investments and talk more about the financial and physical risks that they might face by climate change. Ultimately, do you really think this is going to shift the dial? When it comes to lowering global carbon emissions through the investors say, there's a sort of a three pronged approach here. The first is to get these companies to be more transparent. Then it's to get them to set tie. Targets on their emissions and then the third bit of this strategy is to shift their investments towards cleaner fuels cleaner energies into ready. Get a handle on the investment component here, but it's not clear to me, how long that is going to take an if these companies are going to agree to shift the businesses in a meaningful way. And there's also just a place devil's advocate. I think there is a real question about what is the company's responsibility versus the government's responsibility? Where does the role of policymakers and business leaders begin? I mean at time when we're seeing global emissions still rising. The world is not on track to meet the Paris climate goals. A lot of that is due to government inaction as well as what companies are doing. We've seen that globally, governments haven't really stepped up to make the types of commitments that they would need to live in a two degree world, which then sort of empowers the companies to say, well, if the governments haven't figured this. Out, then why is that our job? So I can sort of see their twenty few in that way, would sort of just make two further points, which is that let's be clear. The world is still using huge amounts of oil and gas will using one hundred million barrels a day of oil. So from the company's point of view, if the demand is there, at least for now, why would they pull back that's the first point? And the second point is that, you know, to what extent can these companies really transition? Yeah. Just finally one way that the oil majors trying to prove that this series of crime. It changes by making these big investments in renewable energy. We saw one of those this week lately that you wrote about that actually shows that this getting quieter crowded field. Yes, we've just seen two of Europe's largest utilities g of France and EDP of Portugal tie up all of their offshore wind assets, which is going to create a bit of an offshore wind behemoth. An already we've seen a former oil and gas company known as Dong become or stud. It's now the world's largest offshore wind developer, and we do see more and more traditional energy companies, try and go that direction the company, formerly known as Stott oil now Ecuador, it also has a growing offshore wind business, so there is some indication that the traditional energy companies are really pushing in that direction although globally last year. What was very striking is that we had some numbers out a couple of days ago from the. A that suggested total global investment in clean energy. In fact fell a little bit last year. Despite the surge of interest from European energy groups, the global picture is still not quite as rosy. Thank you, Leslie, and angelie. That was police Clark took into a senior energy.

"Top of the food chain predators skulk around by themselves attacking farm animals and howling at the moon actually mindy i just learned that the whole idea of a lone wolf is kind of a myth because wolves are actually one of the most social species we know of and they often hunt and travel in packs here listen gee here that's a lot of wolves and it's not just wolves mindy there are actually a whole bunch of animals that black us humans thrive on being social really really from dolphins to guerrillas to wolves all of these animals survive because of the connections they make with other members of their species in these types of animals are called social animals social animals
