The Power of Fathers
"Have a power like no other fathers have enormous power in the lives of their kids. And that's what i really wanna talk to you about. Today i'm going to talk about three realities of fathers and you know it's interesting because some of you may be thinking we'll to talk about dads one time. When i was giving a lecture a man stood up and said what makes you think that you are an expert on men or fathers. And i said sir i'm not i said i'm not a man. I'm not a father. And i'm really not an experts on father's but here's what i do know. I do know kids. And i know what kids want from their fathers and need from their fathers and how they see their father so my role as a pediatrician is to help you. Dads take a look at yourself through. Your kids is whether you have a son or a daughter because i believe if you could just see who you are them from their perspective for thirty seconds or a minute your life had never be the same. I wrote a book called hero being the strong father. Your children need and you can't believe how many dads didn't like the title. They came to me and said. I'm not i'm not a hero. I don't play nba basketball. I don't play in the nfl. i haven't made a lot of money. I don't even have a great relationship with my kid. I said that's not the point. That's not what the title hero means in. Your kids is your hero and dad's like well i don't i still don't know or they react very strongly. No i'm not. No i'm not. I can't be my kids hero. Well then i would ask as why. Are you reacting so strongly. Chances are you're acting very strongly because you wanted that in your debt and you didn't have it so you're very angry at the whole idea of fatherhood but you're kid isn't so you need to look at yourself from perspective of your kid no matter where you are or what your relationship is like whether you've never met your kid by the you're in jail whether you're a ceo of a fortune five hundred company and you never see your kid. You need to know this. You are your child's hero because your child wants you to
Help Kids With Self-Regulation
"So you teach kids to regulate their emotions. All different ages right kindergarten through probably the the military and lots and lots of teachers. I was actually onto zooms today with three hundred teachers. And so i do very similar things with almost everyone New if regulation rigid regulation teams to be a buzzword that in in many institutions As as well as the small institution of families regulation is really a big thing. Because if we can regulate our emotions if we can regulate our nervous systems based on what's going on around us we are going to feel safer. Feel more comfortable and be able to heal. And so i i love now doing opposites. So he's play with opposites because part of regulation is is fast as is bad loud. As bad big is bad. You know we label them. Busy is bad scattered. His you know. But if we can actually just play with opposites and get comfortable with busy and get comfortable with calm and shift between the two then you know. It's not terribly popular in a kindergarten classroom. Let's be loud and we do loud. Stop we stomp you know. And then we tap. Millie quiet and then we move really really fast. We shake our hands shaker. Hands trigger hands. And we feel what that's like and then we slowed down because the opposite of fast is slow. And so we have all these opposites. And i find that. I'm doing that with adults as well. Because when you get comfortable with calm and busy and you get comfortable with loud and quiet you can actually then start to work with emotions regulating emotions
Karpathy Talks Tesla Vision,
"Today. We're gonna be talking about a new presentation over the weekend.

I'll put the link to that in the show notes we've also got an update from elon. Musk on ai. Day another week. Email from ilan as quarter and approaches some news on subscription offerings from tesla. Couple more data points on the planet model as and gigabyte lint up and down day tesla's stock today but couldn't quite make it to four positive days in a row finishing down four tenths of a percent to six hundred and twenty dollars. Eighty three cents that did compared to the nasdaq which was up eight. Tenths of a percent are at so getting into this andre carpathia presentation these are always really fascinating to listen to. He kicked it off talking about. Just how kind of silly that we have these multi-tonne metal vehicles driving people around being controlled by computers as he puts it and that tesla thinks that they can replace that and should replace that with a silicon computer so one of his first slides here just clearly lays out the advantages of that namely reduce latency and increased awareness. Both in terms of perspective and attentiveness. And of course cost. There's a lot of human resources going into driving around cars today so as we know. Of course this is already leading to you. Advantages improved safety. Andre showed a couple of real world examples. Demonstrating that principle on emergency braking i i think we've all seen clips like that. He also showed a traffic control warning. Someone didn't recognize red light. The car dead and then he showed two clips here which i wanna play. Because i haven't seen clips like this from tussle. Before showing what andre calls pedal misapplication mitigation basically using the vehicles interpretation of the surroundings to stop unintended acceleration when the driver actually meant to hit the brake instead of the accelerator. These are examples from Pedal misapplication mitigation pm. You're a person is embarking from driving spot and the are trying to turn and they mess up and they accidentally it

Apple Daily Increases Print Run as Hong Kongers Queue to Buy Paper
"We must press on, said the chief of Apple Daily newspaper as he was arrested. At the end of last week, the journalists on the best known pro democracy paper in Hong Kong carried on producing and writing. They also sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Some Hong Kong has elected to show their support by buying 10 at once and then just giving them away. But for how much longer Last week's actions by the Hong Kong authorities are making it very difficult for the newspaper to carry on to remind you, its owner, Jimmy Lai, is in jail, serving a sentence for unauthorized assembly and senior staff at the paper are being held at the moment, it's feared the paper may not survive for long, like a matter of days. Mark Simon is an adviser of the owner Jimmy Lai. The government has frozen the access to the bank accounts. They've frozen any interaction with the bank account, so they and they've informed Hong Kong banks not to deal with Apple daily. So basically the situation is the company is up, unable to operate its bank accounts, and that's basically that's as bad as it gets. But I mean, you're a large company, 600 employees and so on What's on the agenda for the board meeting, then right now that sounds like the agenda for the board meeting is going to be basically how to work to get the accounts on frozen and then what's the progress there? But it's not really a decision that I think Apple Daily is making. It's not really a decision that's on our side. That's really the decision on the government side at the Security Department wants to open, let The paper operate. That's fine with them. That's fine with us. If not, there's nothing we can do you It's they've cut off every every vehicle and every venue for us, they say if they don't if they don't unfreeze the bank accounts can you carry on operating? I don't think I don't see how nobody can carry on operating without financial, you know activity. In other words, if you can't conduct your business, how do you carry on operating? Uh, it's illegal action. It's illegal, also in Hong Kong. In other words, you can't contract for services or tell employees to work without the ability to

This documentary on net flicks about this local theme park in your area. How the heck did they let that happen. Classic action class action park. Oh my god. Yeah vernon new jersey. This waterpark that was created in the seventies about ninety. Six and there were no rules. This wall street mogul basically decided. He was going to create a waterpark up in northern new jersey. And just do it with no engineers no security. He had kids running the park. Oh my gosh. And it's just the story this documentary about how this how we survived. I can't believe we went there and survived. It was crazy crazy. I mean this documentaries crazy. I mean he built a loop to loop type single loop waterslide and paid kids to be his test crash test dummies and would give him one hundred bucks to write it down there and when they lost their teeth orb got hurt or anything else. They clean them up. Kicking backout pam one hundred bucks and it was gruesome really bad and they had all of these brides that like i said no engineers ever certified or look at. He just created them. I mean he had a lot of the guys from. I think disney and a great adventure and all of these theme parks that had sort of been not hired by these places or they were kinda like kicked out. They weren't using much. Yeah they were sketchy and so he had these guys helping. Create this park and a lot of people got killed in a lot of people got hurt which is really sad but the story is just incredible that this even occurred crazy.
The Hard Truth of the Marijuana Industry
"Two thousand eighteen. Almost seven hundred thousand people in the us were charged for possession of marijuana. Black people were almost four times more likely to be arrested for possession than white people despite the fact that both groups use marijuana at similar rates for a long time because of the so-called war on drugs of the eighties and nineties. These disparities were the primary story of marijuana people of color in the us. But now that story is. Changing as marijuana is legalized in more states. Across the us and growing into a multibillion dollar industry black entrepreneurs are trying to reclaim the plant that crushed their communities for so long black entrepreneurs like gmo modern. I saw this as an opportunity to say if i watch people my community get arrested for this. Why can't i help people my community enter from the legal quote unquote right governmental legal standpoint of this and seeing where we can seek those opportunities. Jia runs her own. Pr firm gb m. communications and public relation services for marijuana businesses. She started her company in two thousand twelve after working goldman sachs for fifteen years three years after starting her company into the marijuana industry. This was in twenty fifteen. Twenty seven states in dc had either legalized medical marijuana or decriminalized marijuana possession but it was instill is illegal at the federal level. So entering that space meant carrying the stigma of working in what many still considered to be an illegal business. My gut never said. Stop what my gut said is back. Be prepare. that you're gonna get a lot of flack keep coughing

"What's going on WB Fans Meg mcpeek I am so happy to be joined by our guest Jordan Canada. She is one of the up and coming superstars in the WMBA. She obviously plays for the Seattle storm coming off a win and you know without introducing her I've got to talk about some of the accolades because you can't mention Jordan Canada and not talk about defense in this league. Here's a two, thousand, nine, hundred, wnba. All defensive first team one, she's a WNBA champion with the Seattle Storm Two thousand eighteen sweeping the Washington mystics open. Guess what she was drafted number five overall by Seattle and I think my favorite fun fact about Jordan is the fact that you are the first. Woman. First Woman in PAC twelve conference history to score eighteen hundred points. Record seven hundred assists in you joined one of the best to ever do it in Gary Payton. In I. I. think that is probably the coolest thing as well. I don't know about you. I'm so excited to have you on the show first off. Happy Belated Twenty Fifth Birthday. How was it? In the bubble. Thank. You obviously, it was quite different. I didn't really get to do much. So I had practice and then I came back and I kinda just chilled That's pretty much I can do is I've been inside the bubble but I've. Sydney gifts my parents sent me a little birthday cake and some edible arrangements. So I got to celebrate just That's amazing. I'm a big fan of the edible arrangements myself. So I am super jealous about that and you mention you know being limited on what you can do in the bubble how is life going in the bubble and? To that point what has been your favorite thing to do not hoops related. The honest we come and don't have much here. We have a pool at the legacy hotel, which is right right up. The street you can save because we're all in villa. So we have a pool that we can go to I. Know they have like early morning golf lessons. and that's pretty much it. That's all we have So for the most part I mean, if you're with your teammates hanger with team You. Aims walking by because we're all in the same areas. Say hello to each other and speak to you know speech our friends and that's pretty much a practice and you come back to your villa. You'd relax and chill we go to games I'm. Really all that we have are you try to make the most of it I? Mean I'm very simple. So it doesn't bother me as much I'm such an introvert. I'm a homebody. So mostly in my room, some of most time just watching TV and stuff. So it's been fine in the beginning of a little bit rough I know something. Terrible living conditions would it where they were saying and stuff but I never had a problem with it but it's been much better You know we've only been here a little over a month. So it's getting better and I think we're just getting used to the conditions of the environment. I'm so happy I actually have something in common with Jordan Canada I am very introverted as well and homebody. So it's good to know if I was in the bubble I would be able to survive with like you said the Gulf I'd be able to hit up. So that'd be pretty cool and it's always fun to relax outside at the pool when you have an off day. So I, know when things being in the bubble and the season being much different than what you're accustomed to. Of course, the news before heading down to a Bradenton geared kloppenburg would be filling in again for coached in Hughes just because of the health concerns with his previous health and cove nineteen how has the team been in contact with coach hugues while being in the bubble? How have you all and coach Kloppenburg still managed to integrate coach us into the day to day of the season. I mean, well, we kind of had a little bit of of that last year when our coaches out when need. Your cancer in remission stuff so. We kinda had. A few games in the season without him and we kinda had to, you know do without him and adjust, but he's always been very active and engaged with us. He I know he talked to the coaching staff allow he does takes me call me from time to time just to talk and catch up I. Don't know about the other players but yet he's just been very engaging in still keeping contact i. know the coaches do a good job of You know talk to him and him incorporating things that he sees while he's. Just, something that he wants us to do Argos very that in. So having a coach Klopp no, be the interim goes like he's had experienced last year being you know in position than he's done a great job and you know we also have like sue bird who's technically light a coach he knows that they're helping. US as well. So we have a lot of help but I know that you know we we really do Miss Dan and I know he's cheering us on from home and you know work continuing to pray for him after thought. So it's it's been a good experience at amazing and it's as if you have done this media before because we me Perfectly with mentioning sue bird and for fans that may not be aware two, thousand nineteen with sue being out with her injury. You were basically thrust in your second season into the starting role and leading this team from the point guard position and being a vocal leader at such a young age in your career. Can you tell us just how that adjustment was? Last season and dealing with that, and even if you know as you mentioned is basically an extra coach with the team on the floor now that you've got her back in the lineup, how how was that transition for you and what advice did she give you throughout last season? It was it was It was tough. I would say there was a lot of ups and downs during that season. It's very hard coming from and you're you know one of the star players on the team you're playing a lot of minutes and you come into a team that's fully stagnant at the see. Find Yourself and my rookie year I had a hard time finding my role I was very up and down I, kind of lost a little bit of my confidence. So it was it was a hard adjustment and then going overseas having to be thrust back into a starting position than have to you know get that leadership back in that confidence bag. So I think that really helped a lot going into two thousand, nineteen season I mean obviously, I didn't expect to be out but because. I was prepared and I gained a little bit my confidence back. I was able to just we know set Ryan in. Obviously there have been subscription ups and downs during that season and trying to learn as I go but sue was a big help. I mean the the best advice that she gave me was don't worry about trying to fill my shoes in in trying to be like me just play your game I know once I came into the league, everyone was talking about Oh. Jordan and ensue in is Jordan going to be able to about up to sue in an expectations and so she told me not to worry about that lying just go out inches player game two point guards, two different types of styles. But what I bring to the table is very important to the team, and so I keep that in mind last year and just trying to play my game and not. The. You know the outside noise and just Do What my team needed to do and I kinda, you know gained a lot of confidence in that and incoming in this season and having Birdie back. I mean like I? Say We're two different point guards in two different styles and if you've watched this play the season, you can kinda tell the difference of when I committed in when she's in. So it's just great to see that you know we're able to play together and you know still Kinda or me keep up the pace with the team when I'm coming in and not have a a low or did. when sue comes out so it's just been awesome experience so far she's been a tremendous help and in my growth all around. How important was that advice that she gave you of reminding you don't try to be me be yourself like how how integral was that inner growth especially, you mentioned now having her back. was very helpful I mean coming into it team like I said I was fully back in playing behind one of the. Honestly. The best point guards ever played the game I mean, that's kind of like nerve wracking and still you have your own expectations like I don't want to screw I don't. WanNa. Come in to a team as police tag playing behind the best point guard ever and you know fail I. Mean there's some of the things I not to think about my rookie year in having her tell me that especially a veteran who's been as game for so long you know she didn't have to tell me that she didn't have to step aside and say, Hey, like don't worry player game don't worry about outside noise expectations just just play your game in big about the team and you which you need to do to to get us to where we are and so to have that advice as such.

"It's just me and stephen beard. Our will return for the following episode and Again welcome back to the first of our spring episodes after a bit of a hiatus where you know. We weren't doing a whole lot only had a baby in published book. And so it's been kind of crazy Times in the last time you heard from us the The baby was still on his way and now he is Bouncing baby boy getting bigger every day. You might hear him a little bit in the background. That i'm trying to record this during his nap time and today just going to start off with kind of a short quick so episode Well if you remember a previous episode where we featured to middle grade verse novels that were set in different historical periods. Today i'm gonna talk about two young adult novels. That regular pros Again sat in two different historical periods and for the those earlier with the term. Young adult just means novels for teens. So it's not genre specific it can be any genre of story just stories featuring teen protagonists on with a primarily teen audience. So today we're gonna talk about under the painted. Sky are under a paints scion. Sorry by stacey lee and the cure for dreaming by cat winters so starting chronologically restart start with under a painted sky and at takes place in the eighteen forties and it is a story of a chinese american girl who is running westward. Because she's been accused of murder and the cops are on her trail and she teams up with a runaway slave and to avoid suspicion that girls disguised themselves as boys and then they end up. Teaming up with some cowboys headed west to try and find gold As part of the gold rush so they they have many adventures along the way Trying to not blow their cover to the boys trying not to avoid To avoid the police you will just have to read the book to see whether they're successful next book. The cure for dreaming is the story of A girl who becomes more and more involved in the suffrage movement in nineteen hundred And this takes place on the west coast oregon and her father is very very much anti suffrage. So as the mo the mortar father doubles down the more she becomes Committed to the suffrage movement but of course the of being a cat winters book. There is kind of a creepy twist. Her father takes her or at doesn't take her. Her father hires a Hypnotise to hypnotize the suffrage out of her and what. The hypnotist actually does was hit hypnotize her so that she sees the world the way it truly is and so when she comes out of her hypnotic trance. The hypnotists looks normal. Most people don't many people look normal but some people Take on the faces of monsters. So there's a lot of hypnotise tricks There's some interesting backstory for the hypnotists involved And the creepy or the book gets the more father pushes them more. She who begins the book s kind of shy and mostly obedient. It just starting to show signs of rebellion Fights back more and more and more so again you'll have to read to see. Does she Retain get some form of independence as she retain her sanity. I'm an how would cheat that. So i'm sort leading these two books Putting them together because they're both stories a fighting oppression in different ways Zoo the first story under a painted sky. there's you a lot of Lot of racism in the book as a chinese american passing for a boy The main character really has to she gets to navigate a world of expectations and stereotypes Subverting them or letting things go as as needed to get by and of course. Then there's the moore. Then there's the more extreme oppression faced by the other girl in the story. Who has been enslaved all of her life and separated from her family and is fighting just to be a free person and then in the cure for dreaming. Obviously the fight for suffrage the fight for women's rights So there's some awesome things. I'd like say about both lee stories. A few critiques as well because no book is perfect So some awesome stuff. That i saw in these books. There was male female collaboration in both of them. And so there wasn't really a story of sadly happens so often especially.

Themed dutch artist use the camera obscure to traced images before he painted as big question and there is some evidence for by looking at the paintings that you can see for his having used the camera obscure off though. We don't have any hard records of actually doing this. Have the theory is that he's used camera. Obscure are actually quite old in eighteen. Ninety one american artists joseph panel propose that vermeer's officer Laughing girl were created was created using the camera obscure His reasoning for that was the perfect graphic perspective of the image. And you can look at the body parts of the girl in officer. I'm because the officer is closer to the viewer or closer to the camera. He's nearly twice as large as the girl. And though that's you know a part of perspective that we're pretty familiar with nowadays according to this theory in the seventeenth century. That kind of perfect perspective really couldn't really would be very unusual is certainly not possible. Say that it couldn't be achieved but it would be very unusual other theories or other theorists Rely on blights worth shapes as evidence of i mean by light source. Sheep's the a these pictures when you're talking about an interior and edge A picture of an interior seton something inside of a house. A room the light source coming in be from say a window so you would expect the shine objects on advocacy that shine and reflect back that light source. That shine would be much more angular more window shaped but instead Vermeer renders the shine on objects.

Alka san in the eleventh century on in the protein century roger bacon described the optical process behind the camera skirrow now in the renaissance. The use of the camera obscure have expanded beyond scientific purposes and used more for artistic purposes Not that it wasn't continuing to be used for scientific purposes but that the artistic use became more widespread and part of the reason for this is the addition of alinsky to the camera obscure and because artists used a wins. They could now have a much brighter. clear image from their whole cara and the the uses. The lens was described by dmv della porta.

And a number of artists in this period are rumored to have the use. the camera obscure As part of their process including johann vermeer antonio cantalupo joshua reynolds. And paul sand be all are rumored to have used or either rumored or that. There is some historical evidence that they may have used. The camera obscure as part of their work then.

"The period about your book. Well i i tell you i have absolutely nothing but respect for that generation but i also i also really the time period was that people just didn't they didn't give up in fact. I just read an article recently about how there was no gasoline. There was everything was rationed at that time. And in digging in we get more into rationing ration tickets ration books and coupons and. Thanks in people would you will would build furnaces in the back of their car and run pipes around the outside of their car over the top or whatever and they would run their cars off of steam and i wanna say that was called gasifier and there are pictures on internet of the gasifier help people would just. It wasn't very attractive. You know there was a huge furnace behind your car and being huge pipe running around sides the front of the engine but you know they just. They didn't complain about stuff. They just fixed it you know they whine and cry bring their hands and gnash their teeth they just they just figured out how to make it work and they made it work and it wasn't pretty probably most of the time but it still works still got to where they needed to go in that sense of can-do spirit. No i think we've lost that and to some extent and i would love to see more of that comeback especially to the younger generation of just kind of. Don't complain about it. Still cry about it. I mean cry. If you want to but then wipe your tears poli boots up and let's figure it out so i i have huge respect generation in previous generations as well. I don't discount them either. But i'd love to see that that sense of let's just do it back in back in our society in. Maybe it won't come. Maybe it will but at least people know that it is possible. Great message gasifier.

"As they boys were dengue. There weren't a lot of books out there for boys that were about dragons. Or you know wizards warlocks. We all know about that story. That's wonderful are in love it but there just wasn't a lot of interesting historical real for boys. It wasn't either a picture book. Or sort of johnny tremain You know serious history. Kind of i want it to be light hearted and teach a little something but still just be fun for the younger boys to read. But then as i was writing it i i really drew on day in and day out kid raising the stuff that the kids were getting into was just like i thought i just have to write this down because i can't even make this stuff up so good. Most of it is actually really happened. Everything that's in. The book basically did happen one form or another As wrote the book. I thought you we need right this for everybody. Just i just wanna write a good story for everybody. Boys girls all young. And then mr hudson's crept in and mr hutchins is ninety eight years old. They're grumpy lives alone. So i tried to like in a little bit. The generational gap between the young young and the old and everybody in between and Really my biggest goal is to just write a good story about history that would inspire people in this theory of broth and mean iri world that we live in today. That at times have happened in the past. And we can't overcome them if we worked together very important message As really interesting to to think about that generational gap in dealing with. That's a pretty huge one from kids. That are elementary school age to someone nearly a hundred and at that time when he go backwards and think about a he would have been born in the eighteen. Forty forties very differently experience He was involved in a lot of A lot of adventures himself. And i'm thinking about spinning that off into another story as well about mr hudson's so you know he's just a really interesting guy. He's lived a long time and he doesn't have a lot of patients for a lot of nonsense but he has a sense of humor too. So so yeah. And he saw a lot of history as well so Yeah good good character So during thing you like to share about the research process things that Surprised you or challenged you or how you got kind of started well. It's funny because when i first started it's been almost six years ago. This has been a really long process. And i don't use an outline or any kind of things on the wall or pictures or anything i just. I really just right what i see. The story comes alive in my mind. And i just sit there and i type i watch what i see and i just write it so it is a long process with doing it that way i have to go back and correct.

"They can't even get their head around. It meant that every single thing that you were watching on your television at that moment was happening sound stage somewhere around the country and that that was day-night everything on television commercials news comedy shows dramas everything and it created some unbelievably powerful pieces of work. Because it was all live so it had the spontaneity of theater yet. It was it was. It was coming out of your television. And so that's one of the main reasons that it's referred to as the golden age and it was also the people that were writing in this era in a rod sterling. Reginald rose patty tchaikovsky. These people a lot of them were veterans of world war two so they were really using this new medium to really talk about very complex things things that you couldn't imagine on public television today. It's kind of amazing. You see it on cable today but not on public television. So that's that's where the term comes from the content was very advanced and also television was very very new thing so it wasn't seen in it was basically centered mostly in the major cities. So i don't wanna say this in any way this condescending but they were writing for a more safe theatrical audience and audience that was used to different things so they didn't have to water stuff down and you know it just it really was a golden age if you see these dramas. They're amazing because nobody felt limited by the fact that it was live. They did incredibly complicated things in all of it happening at that moment fascinating. How would obviously since you're saying the recording equipment didn't still i guess in its infancy exist. Is there a lot of this television left to be watched. It seems like it would be lost right because there was no way to record it. They had this thing called a kenneth scope. Which was literally. And i'm not exaggerating. It was a movie camera aimed at a tv. And that was the so anything you see from about nine hundred and fifty six before Is literally setup where they would be doing something with multiple cameras on a stage and you know you have a director who would be cutting between the different cameras and the final result would be seen on a monitor say in his direct in the in the control booth and some were they would also have a television like people were watching at home and they would set up a movie camera. Just aim at right at that. Tv screen and that's what you see. There's actually fortunately quite a bit. That still exists. A lot is lost but thankfully quite a bit does exist. Oh cool cool and you can see them on youtube if you go on youtube. There's tons of this stuff a in the public domain right now. A lot of it is. It's tough very different from them in the book world. I'm more takes a lot longer. Yeah so the the book description on it seemed like the main character. Donny had a lot of run ins with mccarthyism. Some ethical debates Without giving too much plot away. Is that something you'd like to share dirt will. My story starts with. Actually johnny getting fired and the re. He's hit the time the story begins. He's a he's a comedy writer on a show called hermes and house. Which was you know. That was another thing. That was a big part of golden asia..

And i'm the author of the strange birth short life and sudden death of justice girl which is a novel about the world of live television in the fifties and tells the story of a writer from that era who quite by accident finds himself in charge of his own show. And it just tells the story of like the title says the the short existence of this show in the crazy battles that he gets to into with his lead actress and the head of his network. So do you want to start. You know you had a question about tom of yes. Like this takes place in in the fifties And was described as the golden age of television. I guess my question is what exact period is the golden age television. And what made it. The golden age of television gr- gr- great question while the golden age of television is generally referred to as the period from the end of world war two until nineteen fifty-six nineteen fifty seven and this is the era when television was live.

How may i mckay. Ar underworld gods of island people's so it whole kind of but so that's that's the history behind pluto. You will And soon you know. Like i said in july. We're gonna get a lot more information. Go see who pluto photos online. As they're being posted there still not particularly impressive because they're rather blurry still on but as the probe gets closer photos get better and better nutter in so. Let's keep updating the page with for this for these genetic so that you can see the links to the better fancy pictures but but it's the history behind the finding seeming. The planet people were. So ira were so mad. That he wasn't a planet anymore. But it's its own special each his own special things. Don't take as planet being the moated. The banstead is the story class of objects and even heard like modern astronomers saying that we really shouldn't be teaching planets as in. Here's the planet's memorize them. We should be teaching the qualities right because that's more important to know exactly and it better defined it better is a better understanding of how the solar system works. And what's really there. That's what they do with the heightened planetarium to new york they group digs by categories so the inner planets planets are grouped together. Because we're all rocky have on a very base level. The same characteristics comes down to it. Earth mars venus mercury are all rocky objects but the the bigger planets in the episode of jupiter saturn neptune. Uranus they're all gashes big gas balls and more clearly stories we can link to. I know there's a fun documentary. neil degrasse tyson. Where he talks about the adorable angry notes he gets about. He wrote a great book about all. This called pluto files. It's also the was may later onto a pbs nova document which you can believe you go online and watch it. Oh believe it might be just streaming on pbs or on lex netflix. But also to. Yes very good. Very good duck mary. There's other good good good sources of information about the handle thing so anyway. That's that's the history of it. That's pluto yup. I remember taking astronomy in college and like the first day are professor. Said you think there's nine planets now but just give it time and there will be eight. He called it and though my understanding at this point me means in truth. This was somewhat with current knowledge somewhat inaccurate but he thought it would be defined as quite propelled object. What now try it. Well in the ballpark inadequate. I believe it was in the park. Heiress is not quaker delegate So the part of the what's called the scattered disc so but when it comes down to so far. Knock objects are a little hard to to necessarily grouping together as in fact as a category of objects around pluto lou towards the terrible Think you'll grass tyson's ventures the hogan it sounds like hemorrhoids Tweets but i anyway. That's the that's the deal. And that's how far we've come in astronomy from canal ian that people to use defining what sort of object pluto is actually having pictures and look at it so would not bore the characteristics of these objects sold very interesting.

Not the numbers or you could leave us a Some feedback as review on itunes or stitcher or android or whatever Cod catcher you are wherever pod catcher using till it to listen and hopefully we will be back soon with another episode related to astronomy and photography We're currently researching. That camera obscure a usual jam. Yes we had to make one months and we will talk about that in the next episode. I saw a further. Do this is one hundred centuries babai.

"Sixteen and died later that year. Basically from to sing and this kind of put a whole wrench into the below observatory at the time because personal low had had basically dowd. The observatory this will with a million dollar down to keep it running after his death a legacy well his widow constance lowell basically. It was like no that should be my money and tried to rested that steal it away from the observatory until a ten year legal balance that basically shut down blow observatory while this was all sorted out on finally finally finally finally on after ten years. We're talking about venting twenty six. The observatory comes up running again and starts to starts to do research by this time. Loaves twigs now being run by actual strana mirrors and so they were actually doing real. That i shouldn't say real research loaves doing research. But he had no formal training drowning now brumby. Actual drummers was a somewhat respectable observatory doing at astronomical work And one of the things they decide to continue doing search for planet x whoever the Director of the story of still melvin. S- lifer didn't really consider this to be a very high priority and so he essentially delegated it to really an intern. You will and it was a new hire. This untrained has farm boy of Who's twenty three years old at the time named clyde tombaugh okay. Tom bow was an amateur astronomer. And he builder of his own telescopes and he'd gotten this job because he had read an ad in a science journal or basically internship at at will observatory done his own research into this and he had these nice astronomical drawings of jupiter on other celestial bodies when she said and that it press lifer enough for cipher to offer him. the job. devi idea. This was not a very glamorous job tomba's job was essentially to stay up really late at night get his get time on the scale scope after the other strawberries were done for the evening. It was stay up. Take lots of photos of the sky k. Dan during the day hit develop those photos and then basically compare take photos taken different nights of the same area the sky and compare them whistling cold. A a blink comparator a competitor which is basically the same essentially like a magic. I that you stick in your on your eyes on and instead of showing multiple images whenever you cut the thing it just flows back and forth between two viewfinders. Yeah you've got the guy. Yeah the books that you hold up a The anyway so and he basically would spit basically days his hours on hours days upon days. Just doing this flipping back and forth and the thing was this was before computers ring that he had to basically look to see if anything in the photos moved so flip back and forth back and forth back four and he did this for about a year before. Finally he saw when looking at some photos on the february eighteenth nineteen thirty using blink competitor. He saw for take on january. Twenty ninth in object. Move in the background. Very tiny very small dot was moving on your at the time. They had enough Knowledge at the time to be able to tell what things were so. This wasn't a comment. This was an asteroid. This was not something. They had already discovered This was something new and just was moving through the background sky and about location. That poodle was predicted to been and so he basically told his superiors and they made him do observation after observation after after observation to see if the thing was actually there and low behold it was and so finally the observatory are march thirteenth of that year announce they had founded the head found this missing planet x and cut a release it to the public to much fanfare. Now whenever you find a new planet or when you find something the solar system you generally get naming rights this this is a controversial Itself you you you get to pick a name but the name he also caspi something that is acceptable to cow. The world at large This had happened with discovery of uranus and neptune. For example when you race was discovered by william herschel He had wanted to call it. The georgian star after his benefactor king george of england he was jewish third actually and obviously people were not very outside of people who want to do a lot of people. Actually outside of the akita watercolor herschel afternoon founded and finally people in france who said well ream everything else up there is named after roman gods was calling ramos. That'd be the next one after saturn if you know you're jupiter his father saturday. His father was uranus When neptune was was cited very very quickly the name. Neptune was picked and Lavar who was again people try to named after him. He actually jumped on board with a whole to names really quickly. Saying hey dave were so including was discovered. There's this big push to suggest a name for. They had lots names bouncing rough. Probably the funniest of the whole story was that constance lowell wanted to basically catch suggesting as for the first name she suggested with zeus which make which doesn't really into the whole get jupiter is exquisitely in fact if you're If you're greek and listen to this you would know the planet. Jupiter called zeus your language. Because that's saw. Did she want to call it percival after her husband and finally she gives Constant wants to be. She wants her name attached to the planet that she didn't want to fund finding yes. Okay the to say The other members of the observatory were were having. None of that is interesting. Because the person who should have had know rights to this clyde tombaugh on actually kind of refused the rights he in fact he begged his superiors begs flavor to pick a name really quickly before somebody else did and interestingly enough somebody else ended up picking the name of pluto. It was an eleven year old english schoolgirl named a veneer At venetia our venetia burney. She was a oxford schoolgirl Let old her grandfather falconer. Menen was actually the former oxford librarian k. And at breasts will morning. they were t. He tells her about the discovery about this new planet. They started talking about names as she suggested she had just learned thala. School was like call it pluto because poodle would have been jupiter's rather and we already have a plant. They met tune after another one of jupiter's brothers.

"And so may struggles with it throughout the book. She brings her reader with her. She really misses. She doesn't miss being in school because of the struggles she had with teasing from other children with With her teacher getting onto her for something that she really couldn't control but she does desperately want to learn want to read part of her big disappointment at having to go and work at the blinkers is that she wouldn't be in school anymore and would fall even further behind so as she is out there struggling to survive. She's also trying to teach yourself to read better with varying degrees of success in varying degrees of competence throughout the book. Now some of the fun. Interesting points In this book that argued talking points for say a class or a book club our life in assad house which was very dirty very wet other interesting talking points. Include the kinds of chores that you you see may do throughout the book after the opening lingers liam. She's really you know she. She herself was mostly doing domestic service so she was kind of made running the household and she didn't really trim tend the crops before they left after they leave. She doesn't really have a motivation to try and make a farm work. but she's just making We really late to see her doing the bare minimum of chores to make herself work to make her survival work You see her picking beans giving what she can out of the garden. You see the kinds of stores that she has left for higher Ucr making coffee keeping herself. Warm keeping you know. The house is dry. She can and see what she she ate. Very few twelve year olds today will make copy strong potty copy for themselves for breakfast. But may dis you see may making biscuits She has an apple barrel that gets lower and lower and lower as the story progresses and she has a certain number of canned goods that she rushes out for herself including one particular cam of fancy peaches that she saves for your very special or desperate moment. So those are all interesting talking points Also a good talking point as you mentioned earlier to discuss dyslexia and the struggles that that may encounters including the fact that people with dyslexia. You can learn she. She even went during her lomas when she's having trouble he you know when she's having trouble making words make any sense. She still kind of mentally goes over the lessons that she's heard read to her or spoken to her. She also uses a number of coping techniques that people with dyslexia do use and find effective for instance. She reads along with someone else or she holds objects in her hand. And that helps her Read more smoothing so to give you guys idea of the wife in the sod house. I'm going to read a couple of the poems from may be all right. So this is the twenty ninth poem and maybe she is already at the sod house. With mrs ohlinger who is clearly not very happy with her life there and there may have lots of things to complain about mrs linger that. She's not very friendly issues. Not really helping around. The house in may even wonders how she could have survived before may came to do all the chores. But this particular poem offers a nice court early glimpse of what. The sod house looked like which may describe this not very nice because she had she herself grew up in a sod house but her family had been there for some time on had time to make it look nice and mr lingers. Saudi is maybe not as sturdily constructed on. He hasn't had as much time on. The prairie is miss experienced. So you get a glimpse of the saudi and you get a glimpse of mrs ogling a particular situation. It's wet when mr ogling leaves already. there are patches where the muslim ceiling drips hype cleared the breakfast table and washed up. There is nothing more to keep me busy center. Rocker lights a candle to bring sense to the dark. I wonder if the same summer storm keeps hiram in pau inside. I sit down at the table. Start to mend a shirt. I was wrong. Trying this the sibling your says but his letter was so kind. I didn't think through prairie living. She rocks if my brother had shown in my photograph. I wouldn't be stuck here. I little with a button and thread. She stops a chair. Her voice is louder. I'm not one of those mail order brides. If that's what you're thinking lift my is for my sewing. New ma'am i say walks again the quiet. Here's the worst part under storm. The way it hounds you inside outside nighttime day shift to miss. Leaking patch forming overhead. Hoping she doesn't expect me to talk. Because what can i say. The prairies heart on psalm. But it's home to me. Mr ohlinger has tried. I hate this place. She whispers before. I think better. I say he's left a shade tree out front. He's fostered the walls and he's putting in a proper floor. What you say. Does she even remember. I'm here mr. Oakland is a good man. I try again. He wants to make this home for you. She stands over me now. You think plaster makes a difference. This place look at this. She holds out her mudcake skirt. Filthy on here. The ceiling reeks. Sometimes snakes get through the cool science where they like to nest with mice on offer she glares. I want to know how old she is for years. Maybe by ahead of me. I want her to know she'll learn to make home when it's what outside and our roof leaks mine. I crawl under the table. Wait for the storm to pass. She glares again but slowly lowers herself to the dryer. I settle next her so with the language and imagery of this poem. I think it's time to maybe leave. May be and appreciate all that inside out and back again offer which is a very different story and the very different time so inside out in back again by tom. carly is.

"To put it to but it mildly so he founded the school. He founded a basically a religious group called pythagorean pythagorean ism mouthful and they had some they had some beliefs that were pretty far out there a one the all. This was practiced in secret. So a lot of what we have could obviously be wrong but it generally can't really make up this sort of stuff. Some of the were common or lesser. Crazy things is. The cult believed in reincarnation. They practiced temperance. Which at the time would have been pretty surprising. they also held themselves to strict dietary roles. They were possibly vegetarians. Now there's nothing wrong with being a vegetarian but remember the time we're dealing with. This would have been a rather unusual thing. Yeah what i read said. They they took it rather further than i think. Most vegetarians least further than i take it but not as far necessarily as far as begins say also would not wear leather or will which one of those their their dietary restrictions to include things like a beans being forbidden. How did they get their proteins. A very good question. They must have been dreaming. Must've been drinking. Darren eating eggs same. Must have or they they any at all. That may have been on the list. It all comes from that belief in reincarnation. Actually they believed that the stents incarcerated in human animal or vegetable form and but only in certain plants so beans were basically little capsules of people soul. And that's why you should eat okay again. These guys they're out there. They're now they did do some kind of nicer things. One thing is the patrons gave equal opportunity to win and we're one of the first all inclusive groups of the time where both men and women could practice equally in fact some of the more influential early off some of the more influential priestesses of the coal were obviously priests but winning basically where some of the earlier leaders after pythagoras but even then there are some weird things gotta sex was forbidden in the summer months and had to be reserved only for what it was proper keep warm i guess i have no idea lie but many women could only sleep with each other in the winter other random off the wall all things. There are some now there some kind of apocryphal stories. He's probably not true. But they're things that are attributed to them are that male members had be castrated to enter into the highest circles and the highest circles. Some of the beliefs they had were pretty out there. One generally that had is that basically math rolled everything. These was basically turning math into a religion. And you bet basically it was some sort of divine gift handed down at. Pythagoras was the one was a was the son of god. A god goddess. Who brought this to the to the world. Some of his barbie say that he was the son of apollo or was born from a virgin butler or things like that for that. His i was foretold by the oracle at delphi other strange because ultimately yup so Historic historians socratous and and through these actually record whose father was and he was just a common..

"Coming two hundred. Bc another's after pythagoras who who was born in five seventy b c e and lived until about four ninety five. But it's clear from the chinese writings that this was just more of a textbook recording down when oregon known for centuries and that seems to be that large case with the pythagorean theorem is probably one of the earliest mathematical theorems we know about today. And it's probably one of the best known theorems of people who took math long ago in still. Don't quite remember all of it probably still remember. The pedestrian theorem but for those who don't end for younger readers. Would you can't explain what it is short. I'll give the very very basic runner. So the pythagorean theorem essentially scribes relationship between the longest side of a right triangle a triangle that has one ninety degree angle in it compared to the other two sides the right triangles usually referred to as the lakes so by pop new. That is the long side. Right triangle is exactly equal to the It squared is equal to the squares of the other. Two legs of the triangle does eight squared plus b squared. We holes ceasefire. Ab one night being being the other nc being the hypotheses There are many many many many many many many proofs of this pie fabulous as is famous for basically writing down the. I really good proof. He's the first who came up with the best. And most detailed geometric proof by a process known as rearrangement which is where you can show that a big square. A big square side lakes a. plus b. okay When basically are equal to if you rearrange things correctly are equal to a big square. C c squared length. So it's pretty it's pretty easy one Most of you probably saw it in geology class. When you're in the ninth grade because it's such an easy one to write out. Best one that he initially proved now others took his works or expounded upon him. Euclid the famous Jim a geometry that we base all of our modern geometry off of for the most part all geometry falls in either. Either clean or non euclidean. Give you an idea. But euclidean geometry described by his book. The elements Has a different proof. But it's based off assumptions that pythagoras had made so even euclid goes back to pathak's then over time more people came up with proust's aristotle discovered a proof that unfortunately we only know about from third hand accounts because aristotle's book about it with was sadly lost others well hippocrates and archimedes found detailed proofs. But i think this is interesting. The most The the most interesting one we've got correct is president garfield actually discovered a proof. The tag rian theorem at had it published under his name. Wow so as one of the leader proves he used. He actually use trapezoid to show the video crack so yes and so. It's still selling play around with today on various very shifts forms. Now the probably the craziest thing about the therrien theorem especially at about it being attributed to pythagoras is the fact that that while it's a tribute to him as generally understood that he was the first write it down. We don't actually have that written copy or that written work by address and almost everything we know about him and his discovery of the theory comes from second hand or third hand sources some of which are literally centuries later so there is some debate about with with marin scholars of weather. Pythagoras actually was a person and he actually did indeed write this down or at least had all the things attributed to him actually attributed to him. Joel consensus says is that he obviously did exist..

"She was asked not to march with the white delegates now. The parade was organized by by the different organizations. Different clubs that were remember not necessarily women's clubs but it's using the shorthand so the organization. She was a member of west predominantly white. But the parade organizers wanted her to hang back and to march with the organizations that were predominantly black so they wanted to segregate the parade. Wasn't the manner her not participating at all. But that they want they didn't want her to be in a group with the other people in her organization. Well she had another idea. She waited quietly by the sidelines on the day of the parade and when her group that the predominantly white group that she was actually a member of walked by she just hopped right out in the street and joined him And there is a fun. Pop culture connection here Especially for those who are a fan of the web. Comic harka vagrants by kate beaton. And i'm gonna linked to this in the show notes and you can see a fun comic about ib wells life and specifically about this Parade incident believe also about the lynching. Incident that i mentioned earlier if i'm remembering the comic correctly so there were women's groups who are really working in support of their race their sex but the didn't always get along with with male. African american activists. A lot of the the impetus behind forming women's groups was that they felt left out of the conversation by men. indeed. Mary church darren either. Wells openly criticized booker t. washington for his attitudes and stance on women wells criticized washington for really kind of making sexist jokes and perpetuating the same kinds of both racially sexually charged syria types. That they were trying to get away from and mary church tara while she praised his commitment to industrial education for a woman she felt like there was maybe too much emphasis on that instead of on academia after all she herself was a scholar and she felt like those opportunities needed to be just as available to women as to men. Now we've talked a lot about separations here And conflict between.
