"I'm the host and producer of the podcast sesta. We aim to harness the power of arts and culture to foster conversation and build peace and Cyprus. I'll be your guest host for this month a woman. Today we're talking about a woman who took on the federal government to reinstate recognition for indigenous nations. Her story will show you how a peaceful relationship with earth directly connects to peace among people. Let's talk about Ingrid Maschine avatar. Ingrid was born on July 31st, 1957. She was a descendant of celebrated menominee leaders. The menominee name her grandfather gave her translates to flying eagle woman. Ingrid grew up in Chicago, but she spent her summers visiting family on the menominee Indian reservation in northern Wisconsin. That was where her heart rate Ingrid enjoyed Viking down alt logging roads, walking in the forest, and swimming in menominee lakes and rivers. Ingrid grew up during the time of Indian termination. During the 1950s and 60s, the federal government tried to end their obligations as trustees to native tribes, obligations which were outlined in hundred year old treaties between sovereign tribes and the federal government. Termination essentially put an end to existing protections, cutting off the little government support that existed and revoking tribal sovereignty. The result disintegrated infrastructures and tribal communities and collapse their economies. Many people were plunged into poverty. The government targeted tribes that were economically successful. In high school, Ingrid became involved in efforts to push Congress to repeal these policies and reinstate recognition of tribes. In 1973, the menominee nation succeeded. Ingrid continued her activism at the university of Minnesota, where she joined the American Indian movement. While studying in Cuba, she met her future husband, a young Palestinian man named Ali Al Issa. They married in Syria and raised their son in New York City where Ingrid worked for the international Indian treaty consul. In a new city with her young family, Ingrid found strength in community and memory. She wrote about the night of October 12th, 1992. The native community in New York was celebrating an hour of silence for mother earth. In their house, Ingrid and Ali, unplug their electric appliances, turn off the lights and spend the night telling stories around the dinner table. With our stories, we carried our son in another epoch, she wrote, my husband and I told stories about our childhood, I decided to narrate the funny ones. I think this will keep alive his bond with the older aunts and uncles whom he met, but doesn't necessarily have a continuous relationship with. This makes them more alive and present. Now my son has a link, a threat that connects him to our posts, which are a part of him. As a peace builder, Ingrid looked to the past for lessons on how to build the future. She knew peace required constant work. That philosophy guided her while cofounding the indigenous women's network, which educated younger generations on the historical struggles of women. She also worked as the executive director of the fund for four directions to revitalize indigenous languages. In an essay on peace, she denounced the theft of indigenous land in the name of better use. Ingrid believed the wealth of the world comes from the earth. As we destroy the ability of the earth to sustain us, we'll lose the ability to address the chronic needs of the poor, the hungry and the landless. Until we make peace with earth, she wrote, there will be no peace in the human community. In 1999, Ingrid was invited to Columbia with three other activists to help the indigenous uwa community establish an education program for children and help fight a bit for oil exploration in the area. On February 25th, they were kidnapped. In early March their bodies were found on the Venezuelan border. The Colombian farc rebel group later took responsibility for the killings. Ingrid was 41 years old. Ten years after her death, the uwa people sent a letter of remembrance to the families of activists. It read, for us, they're not dead. Their life work and their memory live on. We thank them for their dedication and time offered for our culture for a spiritual leaders and for the balance of Planet Earth and mother nature. Uva children and elders remember them at every sunset. Their shadows still walk with us, accompanying us along the path.

Is Madonna Gay Again?
"Madonna appears to have declared herself gay. We think. TMZ's got this story that Madonna put up a TikTok video. Yesterday, that's got a lot of people wondering, it's a video that shows her throwing some panties at a trash can with the captain captioned if I miss, I'm gay. If I wrote that, they would just annihilate me. If I miss them get so she throws the pennies and the pennies fall very short of the bin and the camera cuts back to Madonna and she shrugs and walks away. They think this is pretty big news. TMZ thinks this is big news, assuming she's actually making some here. On the face of it, it looks like she might be coming out as a lesbian. That's what TMZ staff says or at the very least bisexual, but it's hard to say for sure. She's been into women, she's made public comments about that. She's even done things physically to show us she's like that. She's locked lips with Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera. But TMZ wrote this up and I want to ask Harvey Levin. Will you not around in the 90s? Have you forgotten a fling with the Miami nightclub owner Ingrid casares, the little hot Cuban girl? That was news everywhere. She wasn't hiding it. Or the fact that she had an affair with Sandra bernhardt? Of course, McDonald likes girls. Of course she's seen the world from both sides. What's happening with TMZ? What a slow news day. You think Madonna is gay? Yes, of course she is. I mean, that totally,

"Her his workplace, Cambridge CMC Cambridge's work is problematic. So here's the problem. When you start tagging people's workplaces when you're having a discussion online, you essentially hamstring, you cut off the discussion because now what happens is that what you're saying is under the view of your boss organization the organization. Now you're operating under the organization's backdrop, you know? So it's a very dishonest way of discussing many times it's done by people who are social media or social justice activists who want to get you fired or to get in trouble with your employers. And it really showed you or at least us many of the people who saw this discussion transpiring online, it showed a level of academic dishonesty, a high degree of weakness on Ingrid Madsen's part where she can't have a discussion with someone without actually just engaging with them rather than threatening them to get fired. Looping in their workplace. So this is a big black mark on her part and I think many Muslims should be careful when they discuss with her in the future. To be fair, I think this is just a one of many. I mean, she's a pro LGBTQ advocate, all these weird things that she does. I mean, there's all the stuff. She's part of the heart. These are just LGBTQ. I mean, I don't know what she actually support, but with organization that arbitrate for the rights are going to the organization. But the principle guidance. I'm the love we got our superhero in my mark mainly, he's all over that, bro lay out SmackDown on Twitter. Yeah, he and you guys don't want to account for one of the answers to. He just goes in the air on him. And he's calling them all out. Obviously, I've been telling you that now it's funny to see you two fighting each other. Because you guys were the same ones who 'cause apparently this person, this guy, Solomon, whatever. So mom, whatever his name is. I don't know, it's not. Not so mine is like an Arabic name. I don't know his name. I was totally mad. I don't know what name is. By the way. He did a hybrid of someone in silly one. Yeah, I don't know the guy. But nonetheless, okay? The parents tweets going back and forth where he was attacking other imams who were saying, well, you know what? Because he was talking about how imams Mark might only have put at that there are so many inboxes and messages from lonely women who try to throw them to that time, you know? And so if you want to because they were talking about abusive spiritual abuse, right? I think what about the women that do this and the people that entices, right? What are the abuse in that case? All of the men have no control. They don't know better. So this guy have to reject those. So mine was basically jumping on him for that. And now oh really? Yeah, this is with the whole thing. One of the more interesting things about this dilemma is that Salman was a person who actually engages with them. He was friendly with people like Ingrid and so on.

"It wasn't because I wanted to just be there my big me. It was because I wasn't going to accept to be treated like an object. Well, imagine you're the others who had already, you know, listed themselves as numbers. They'd be pretty ticked with you. But they just painted me. And not only that, look, it took me a while to understand because, of course, we're in that camp living together. Everything was nasty. No space. We were fighting for a tree where to hang our hammocks. I mean, stupid things. It was our life. And then we would listen to the radio, and every time they would speak about hostages, they would speak about Ingrid Betancourt. Because you were the celebrity. Having run for president. Because they had done such incredible job that for me, what I thought is, well, at least they speak about the situation. I mean, it helps everybody. But if you're also, you know, living in the same conditions, being treated as hostile as you were being treated, and your name isn't being mint junk. Yeah. Do you feel like I'm here too? Yeah, I'm here too. I'm not the only one. And she's not the one important, and she's another one. And of course now I understand. Will you ever try to make peace with him? I speak with all of them. Not all, perhaps not except one or two. Not the American husband. But I'm very close to a very close to Mark. And I have a wonderful relationship with Tom. And with time I had incredible fights for The Hammocks, for example, over. And like we have the impression at the end of the book, those of you who are going to read it, that there was some kind of romantic thing going on, was it? And the whole time I was thinking, how could there possibly be romance? You almost smell like hell. Well, let's say that I had a very special relationship with Mark. Did you fall in love with him? I think it was love. Yeah. I think it was love. Wow. The plan to free Ingrid and 14 other hostages dubbed operation CheckMate was as nail biting and suspenseful as a Hollywood thriller. Posing as farc terrorist commanders, members of the Colombian military, hacked into the guerrillas radio exchanges, ordering Ingrid and the 14 others be flown to meet the new rebel leader. Soldiers from Columbia's special forces took acting lessons in order to pass as aid workers in charge of transporting the group. Once in the air, special forces announced to Ingrid and the 14 other hostages that they are finally free. That was unbelievable. It's unbelievable. You know, and so even when you read the book, I knew what the ending was going to be. Obviously, because you were free to write it, but it is incredible the way that happened. It's like it's like the movies. It's like something out of a movie. Tell us what it was like on that helicopter. Oh, my God. I didn't understand who it was happening. And then one of the guys, he took off his cap. He throw it in the air and he said, we are the Colombian army. You are free. Wow. And it was very frightening. Very frightening because it was, there was no preparation for that. Suddenly just all our dreams come true and what's going to be life now like, you know, does it kind of very, very strong, strong, release of energy, like we were all shouting, crying. I thought we were going to crash and then I had a gap to. And I could see in my companions, their faces, the transformation, first, to perfection with the realization that we were freed and then the happiness and then the scary being scared because what's going to happen now. All those feelings mixed. Describe what it was like seeing your children. After 6 and a half years for the first time. Wow. I had dreamed with them. Every day. I had left Lorenzo when he was 13 and Melanie 16. And I had to just try to imagine how they had transformed themselves. And of course, I would close my eyes and try to just project the face of Melanie into a more mature girl and then woman and of my little boy to a man with another voice. And I always, of course, to give me some kind of pleasure. I would think of images of them as beautiful children and beautiful adults. You know, I would think they must be so beautiful. I was freed and I was told that they would arrive the next morning. I couldn't sleep that night, no sleep. I mean, it just was, I wanted that next morning to be there. And I was waiting for the door to open and then they were there. And it was my children. And I thought that my thoughts were beautiful. You know? Sometimes I wake up and I'm just like surprised to be under a roof. But I remember the first night that I slept in a real bed. I had sleep in the floor. It didn't seem right. To have a space of my own. It's something that I really appreciate and I'm having to fight for the space. The little things of freedom like being able to just change your mind, you're going to take a bath and then you said no, I'm not going to take a bit of that into just have something I'm going to cook something. Those kind of little decisions you make every day. I really cherish them a lot. When I was released, one of my favorite things to do was to come to supermarket. We never had any food or any vegetables in the jungle. And so now that I have the opportunity to do so, every week I change foods. I want to try them all. This area here is called the high line. This is a place to walk really. I mean, I think it's a very nice way to just hang out. It's the true expression of freedom. I mean, I was chained to a tree, so this is something I couldn't just, I couldn't imagine of being doing, so now that I have it, I just need to hold myself in it. So this is my local church. For me, it's special because when I used to pray in the jungle, I would pray a lot to this. Virgin here, the virgin of Guadalupe..

"They would be reunited. For much of the time Ingrid was held hostage her family living in France had no idea if she was dead or alive and she writes that her family was her son and her moon and stars during captivity. And that memories of our children's kisses as many of you mothers can imagine was her lifeline. Ingrid's daughter Melanie and her mother, Yolanda are here. Her son Lorenzo is studying, for exams in France, and could be here. Melanie during that time, did you at all have any idea that she was alive? What were you feeling during that time? You had to build a life for yourself without your mother. Well, that was, that was actually really hard because, you know, at first, when she was kidnapped, we thought, okay, if this lasts more than two days, we're gonna go crazy. And then the weeks went by in the months and years. And at some point, after the second proof of life, which was like a year and a half after she got kidnapped. We stopped receiving groups of lives. There was, you know, nothing, no news. Just rumors. And there were rumors that she was dead. There were all kinds of rumors. And about 5 years after she was kidnapped. I remember there was a moment when I realized, wow. We haven't had any news from my mom for four years. We don't know anything. So were you at some .3, four years in, were you trying to then move on and trying to have a quote normal life or was your mother being held captive always a part of everything that you did? It colored everything. I think you defined everything. You can not move on. I remember someone told me once the thing is that this is not like death. You can not mourn. When you don't know, you know, when you don't know what's happened. Uh, Yolanda, Ingrid's mother does not speak English. So Melanie is going to translate. But Yolanda, you went on the radio almost every day, but had no idea if Ingrid was listening or not. Did that matter if she was listing or not? So the only way I had to help her was to tell her every day how much I loved her. That is a mother's love. Every day she would go to that radio station. And broadcast. Hoping that her daughter would have a radio in the jungle. There was a place where a station where they let the families of people who'd been captured leave messages. Did you hear the messages on the radio? Yes. I mean, I could know by heart, which she was going to say. Because every day she would say, darling, I'm here. I don't know how you are. Are you cold? Are you are you warm? Are you sleeping in a normal bed? And I want to tell you that I love you. And this is what we're doing. After her release, Ingrid Betancourt was celebrated as a hero. Even awarded France's highest honor by president Nicholas Sarkozy. But some of Ingrid's fellow hostages saw things very differently. Keith scandal and others alleged Ingrid was arrogant bossy and took more than her fair share of food. Even in good former campaign manager, Clara Rojas clashed with Betancourt in captivity, writing in her memoir that Ingrid went from being a role model to someone who represented death, becoming extremely apathetic and bitter. And in Vanity Fair magazine, fellow hostage Gloria Polanco expressed her feelings very bluntly, saying, let's not make symbols and icons out of women who aren't. When I was reading, even silence has an end, I thought, not going to fare well with many of the other people who were captured with you, particularly every time you run away, it would cause problems for everybody. The kind of person who has the courage to keep running away wouldn't necessarily get along well with everybody else. And you were consistently defiant. There is a passage in the time in the book where you wrote where all the radios were stripped and taken away. And you, the defiant one, kept yours and hit it. And that caused a lot of problems with everyone else because and I put myself in their shoes. I would have been terrified that even reading it. I'm thinking any moment they're going to find that radio and they're going to chop your head off. And then they're going to punish everybody else who knew that you had the radio. Just envisioning days without the voices of our loved ones, was for me impossible. I couldn't. And so I took my radio and I hid it my radio and when the guard asked me what I had done with it because they knew they counted the radius and they knew. I said it's broken. And weren't you afraid of other hostages telling on you? Yeah. And they wanted me to hand the radio to them, or they were going to just tell the guerrilla what happened. Well, they obviously, based on what they've said here, they don't like you. No, they didn't too much. They didn't like you then either. No, no, not much. But I don't know what that response to their criticism. No, I think you see where there is validity in their criticism. Can you understand why they wouldn't like you? Yes, I understand why they didn't like me. And honestly, I wasn't perfect. I mean, I had many moments where were you arrogant and selfish as they say? I think I was frightened of them too. And perhaps, you know, sometimes where you're frightened, you show it something of yourself that can be that as arrogant. But now you looking back because you are very self aware woman. It's very clear from what you've written here that you have done a lot of thinking about yourself. You're very introspective. Would you say in that environment that what you projected was arrogance and selfishness? Probably, yes, as we all did. Because you have hard feelings towards them? No, but that's a decision. You see that something I just, you know, I worked on that because for me there are my family. I haven't spent in my life so much time with anybody. Know my children or my mom or anybody, then with them. And I know them everyone of them so deeply and so, I mean, and I love them. You love them. You love the people who just said those things about you. Well, I hope they will just process what they lived in a different way and they would just change their minds, but it doesn't matter. What's interesting, you write in the book how, after a while, you started to act the way the gorillas treated you. They treated you like animals, and you started to behave like that. Yes. And I think because I just realized that and I didn't want to lose my humanity. I became a problem in the camp. For example, I remember there was at one point one morning. 4 a.m., the guards came in, barging in. Count, count, count your cells. I was like, every one of us has to say a number, and so I have my fellow hostages saying one, the other two, the other three, and it comes to my turn, and I'm sorry. In grid pattern chords. If you want to make sure that I'm here, you just call me by my name. And it.

"A hostile and deadly place. Dark, steamy and wet. The threat of yellow fever, malaria, and typhoid is ever present. Jaguars. Wild boars, and more than 100 species of snakes thrive in this jungle. Rivers, team with leeches, piranhas, electric eels, crocodiles, and anacondas. The Amazon is alive with more insects than any other place on earth, scorpions, beetles, wasps, spiders, and hundreds of different types of tarantulas, flourish in the humidity. And the noise they make is definitely. Imagine being forced to live in that for 6 and a half years. That is what happened to Ingrid Betancourt, who, in 2002, was kidnapped by terrorists during her presidential campaign in their native Columbia, South America, and she became the world's most famous hostage. You say the bugs were torture, explain why. Because there was no respite. I mean, first there were millions. I remember having this understanding for the first time with skin is about. Skin is our first defense structure against the environment. Normally skin is something that we take care of with creams and things. But here it was really the central of the paint. Every day I was scratching myself every day I had a problem dealing with the skiing bugs biting stings reactions, allergies. When you think about hell is a biblical thing you know where you paint doesn't end, that was it. You tried to escape at least four times and you say that the fear of getting caught really was worse than your fear of dying. Yes. Every time they would cut me back, it was worse and worse. So it came to a point that for me that was a better option. I especially thought that perhaps it was like freedom. The death would be like freedom. And especially because I was the burden of the of the pain I was causing to my family. It was just unbearable. I remember thinking that my children, when I left Lorenzo, he was 13 and Melanie was just 16. And they had grown to be adults. And I was thinking they can not move on because they're waiting for me. They're waiting on their mother to be free. Yes. And this is saying to us for 20 more years. After one escape attempt, the guards beat you, and when they caught you, put a chain around your neck and walk you back to camp on a leash like a dog. Will you mind reading the passage on page 16? During the suspended time of that endless march. I felt myself becoming stronger with each step. I knew that in a way I had gained more than I'd lost. They had not managed to transform me into a monster. Thirsting for revenge. But I already knew that I had the ability to free myself from hatred, and I viewed this as my most significant conquest. I was so moved by that because I can't imagine having a chain around your neck and being marched in front of all of the other people who'd been captive. And humiliated that way. And in that moment were you able to free yourself of hatred or did that come later? It came later. It came later, but in a way, it was like breathing again. Yeah. Ingrid Betancourt was hell hostage for 6 and a half years in the Amazon jungle, her new book. It's called even silence has an end and I say you're one of the bravest mothers I've ever even heard or read about. It's one thing to be captured and you think it's going to be three months. And then a year passes. And then there's that whole realization. It's now been a year, and then two years pass. How do you literally keep yourself going when you don't know if it's going to be two more years or 20 years? Did your faith get stronger? Did you did you become a more spiritually conscious person? Yes. Yes, of course. I think that was a transformation. It was really for a long time you were reading the Bible, weren't you reading the book? I discovered that. I discovered the book. Because you see, I thought the Bible was a very boring book before being abducted. Yeah, so you need Jesus, and then it's not so boring. Then you go, I like this book. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. But when I was abducted and of course, the first thing I had was this kind of very aggressive reaction against God. If you exist that's why me, yes. Why me and why my father? Because I adored my father, you see. And I always thought that I had the right, okay, I'm going to try not to cry. Father died. Three months after you. One month. Exactly. One month exactly. I remember that. I was abducted at 1 p.m., the 23rd of February. He died 23rd of March 1 p.m.. When I was abducted, my father was very ill. And I had been in a position where I was with him in the hospital, and he was going to die and she didn't die. You know? But I realized at that moment that to me it was so essential to think that in the moment of his death, I was going to be there with him. Holding his hand to just help with the transition. To be there. And so that's how you had always imagined it, and then you were not there. You were not there. And I can see that still very hard for you. In France and her native Colombia, Ingrid Betancourt's family and friends worked tirelessly to secure her release. Weeks turned into months, months turned into years. Just 16 and 13 when their mother was abducted, daughter Melanie, and son Lorenzo joined supporters at rallies and protests, hoping to keep their mother's story alive. They even lobbied the president of France on their mother's behalf. The family was able to send love and support to Ingrid through a Colombian radio program. Devoted to broadcasting messages to the nearly 700 hostages being held across the country. Ingrid's own mother Yolanda called into that radio show almost daily. An Ingrid's beloved father Gabriel expressed hope that someday.

"Be in camp like staying for two or three weeks in the same place. What I couldn't believe there's a point in the book when you all get the book to read it, where Ingrid is planning an escape, they steal a machete from one of the gorillas, have the nerve to steal the machete, and risk being, you know, anything happening to you if they find out you stole that machete. And they hide the machete in the poop hole. Yes, oh my goodness is right. So I'm like, do I want to escape that badly? Yes. And every time you tried to escape, you always thought this is going to be the time. Even though you weren't really sure where you were going. I wanted to get back home. You know, when I was reading it and reminded me of our American history and slavery here when slaves would leave an escape into the night, having never been any further than the front yard and leaving to escape, not knowing where they were going, but freedom being so precious that they were willing to risk everything to do that. That's what I felt when I was reading your story. And what's really compelling about the story is it's not just about the physicality of you enduring this. But you really do talk about what happens to you and your fellow captives as a human being. So the slightest little thing, you know, who gets the biggest piece of bread becomes defining for your character. Yes. What were you allowed to eat? What were you eating? We would eat, I mean, it is for you. It is rice and beans. I mean, no vegetables, no foods, no milk, no dairy. No, no, nothing. I mean, just that. You write on page four 34 that I vowed not to look at the size of the portions anymore and take whatever I was served. However, the next morning, when they unlocked my padlock, despite my resolution, to behave like a fine lady, the demon in me got out when it smelled the arepa. Arepa, and I realized to my dismay that I was ready to bite the hand of anyone who tried to take my turn. Yes. And it's not like it was all that good. No, but not at all. That's good. Yeah, I don't know. But it was the only thing there was. And you know, it comes to a point where you're just dreaming with that part coming in. I mean, and I could do it today like a dog. Yeah. You know what? It's gonna be. But you just wanting that thing to come because you want to eat and eat. And because the horrible thing you're gonna eat.

In 2001, Ingrid Betancourt launched her bid for president of war torn Columbia. For nearly 50 years, the country has been waging a war against a homegrown guerrilla group known as the farc, who for years have terrorized the population with bombings, murders, and thousands of kidnappings. During her presidential campaign, Ingrid met with farc leaders. On February 23rd, 2002, she headed to a campaign stop in the town of San Vicente, located in a region controlled by the farc. The Colombian military cautioned Ingrid against traveling to this dangerous area, and even refused to provide her with armed escorts, despite the warnings she decided to make her trip anyway. With her campaign manager, Clara Rojas, another staffer, and two journalists. 30 miles into the drive, their car approached a checkpoint. Manned by farc guerrillas. I told the driver, let's go back. We have to get out of here. There was a govier that came running and he put his head inside the car. And he asked, are you in good battle court? And I said yes. Moments later, Ingrid and Clara were forced into a truck at gunpoint. We had been abducted the guerrillas. He didn't use the word kidnapped. But he said, I had received orders from my commanders to treat you well. That was. I would say the worst day of my life. Inquiry has written a book about her ordeal called even silence has an end, I really couldn't put the book down. It is 528 jaw dropping heart pounding pages. It is spelled binding. And when you read this book, you will feel like you really are in the jungle with Ingrid, describe what your living space was like. Well, it would change in the first year and a half. We were sharing this situation with Clara, which was the prison who was kidnapped with me. And we were living actually in a space with the mosquito net on top, and we had to share that for both of us. I mean, we couldn't go out of that mosquito net. If we wanted to go out, we have to ask permission. So we would pass all our days sitting on that space. And of course, every move we would do, we would just brush the other. And it was very difficult. I mean, when you went to the bathroom, what do they call that when you would go to the hunters? And the chances were actually just a whole and of course, all the bugs and all the things had their favorite place over there. So going to the chanters was the smell you die. My God. It was horrible. So it's a hole in the ground that everybody uses to go to the bathroom. Yeah. We would sleep mostly on plastic sheets on the ground. Or on collaterals that they would make out of logs to have a little space, not be in the ground, but only happen if we would.

"Through 25 seasons. Hey. 4561 episodes. I believe The Oprah Winfrey Show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world. I really never thought of it that way. The aha moments, the breakthroughs, the LOLs, the connections, the occasional, ugly cry. I miss him so terribly, I miss in every single minute. The moments that mattered. The eye opening life lessons. Never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the vault. I personally chosen these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will meet, shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me? Do you hear me? That's what I say mean anything to you. You are listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show, the podcast. Think about this. Being forced to bathe in rivers, teeming with deadly fish and snakes 20 feet long. Swarmed night and day by armies of stinging and biting insects. Needing permission to go to the bathroom. Being chained by your neck to a tree. And walked on a leash, like a dog, waking up every morning, asking yourself, is today the day I'm going to die. I have never heard a more incredible story of survival of strength of courage in my life. Ingrid Betancourt is one of the most brave women I have ever heard of. For the first time, since her nail biting rescue, two years ago, Ingrid is ready to tell the intimate details of her 6 and a half years as a hostage, deep in the jungles of South.

Ingrid view us. Yes the photograph hideous. It shows the beagles bless their hearts lying with their entire faces encased in the netting and inside that netting biting sandflies that are just basically eating their faces off. This is an nih funded Research now. nih is said. Oh well it's not the same institute she said it was. Of course they Oversee a million kinds of institutes. The national institutes have health. And may i say there's almost none of them. That is any good because they are wasting so much money on hurting animals and for forty years of work on a vaccine. Never get anywhere we were able to show with. You don't need animals for that kind of thing that yes you hit. The nail on the head we wrought at nih goes far beyond coachee. We've been pushing to have his boss. Dr francis collins out the door since early last year and he has just agreed to resign. that's was collins head of nih. So we've been pushing hard on that our new thing is let's get not another dinosaur into nih Who just gives money to these animal experiments. Because he's beholden to them their the old boy network. That's modern progressive person. Who knows about research modernisation which is like organs on a chip and hope computers programmed with human data. All of these fabulous new technologies instead of eating beagles faces all planting electrodes and monkey skulls. Which they do and frighten them with. Oh plastic spiders and snakes all at taxpayer expense every single bit of millions and millions and millions of dollars torture animals. Those stay should be long gone absolutely absolutely. And how neanderthal is it that it's still continues and i just can't thank you enough for the work that you do and is a leader. I mean i'm.

Listen the mastermind. You know marketing partnership that he put together and all over the world if you say iraq will say his daddy And so there's there's no denying the connectivity and the fact that he absolutely is the anchor for them. Brand and then would de leon again. He predicted the intersection between culture and to an tequila. No-one really understood what was going to happen in that category the way that he did And he's a black man that owns a tequila and his partner is the geo And is big business. A lot of people don't realize the spirits business which is why you see so many people jumping in. It was his top hip hop art taipei hip hop artists every year. Yeah you posted a picture of your team that you have which is all black women yes which is unheard of in the spirits industry where we are the only team. That looks like us. I have seven black women marketers. That are incredible. They're the best and the best. We can go toe to toe with anybody. So i'm kind kinda calling out the brand. They are what make me. Great and Both of the brands are growing double digits. It's no accident because these women just get it right and they're hard working and we looked like the consumer we're talking to factor the battle. Yeah yeah we do we you know. And again that was another prediction on on duties behalf. Where he was like make that happen. I'm like done Because he knew that that was just going to be such a big moment culture and it has proven to be and we've been at the center of that we have more with ingrid besse. We comebacks hold. Is the breakfast club. Good morning steed. J. envy angela. Gisha guy we are. The breakfast club was still kicking it with ingrid best the executive vice president and global head of marketing for spirits and combs enterprises. We have ingrid busiest ye islam. Powder them during this whole Sense where you are now the lot. Yeah part of why this position so attractive to me was. Because i knew that i would be in a situation that go back and grab a lot of those young women that have been through situations like myself where you you know. You're not getting the appropriate. Titles you're not being offered their appropriate packages. You're being asked to wait in the same positions much longer than your white counterparts. And it's obvious like the the treatment is obvious and it's traumatized right. I think obviously the george floyd moment and the moment where black lives matter made companies realize that they were under the microscope. So you're starting to see them. Appoint folks you know kind of asked figureheads because they have to like okay. We need ahead of diversity and inclusion. Yeah let's get guessing. Continue right now while we're under the microscope. We're going to do this. And then we'll move away from it later served as it can't be surfing in so i would say for those companies. I'm probably you know they keep an eye on me. Because i'm so vocal about it. Let's talk about it. There is racism in this industry. There's racism in all industries right. I think the difference here is that your consumer is black and brown And so you gotta do you gotta do the right thing right and we all have to demand that they do the right thing so it's good to see Some of my peers. That are finally getting positioned in the right places and you know my thing is like you gotta see. Go get everybody else and get a seat right like that's our responsibility. And so that's what i've done with the seven women that work for me and they are incredible. You know on a personal note you also have a son yes and you had sang pretty early and you also had to work though and working in nightlife and working in spirit is very time consuming job. It also requires travel. It requires you being out late. How is that balance for you. Yeah you know what listen. I'm a teenage mom. I have my son at eighteen years old At the first thing i want to say is all you teenage moms. There's nothing you cannot do so for me. It was like the the very very early on. I was like okay. I have this mouth to feed. I have to figure this thing out. And so he certainly Has been my reason. And it wasn't easy. It was my community. Thank god for you. Know his father and his father's family my mom and my family and like your tribe and I knew early on without my tribe. I wasn't gonna really be able to balance like the love that i had for being a adult professional career person but the responsibility that i had to being apparent reason with waves way was one of the early mentos yes way is absolutely one of my mental. Yeah i'm from. Yeah yes so. I in turn for sway and you know my promotions. My street. promotions career was because of sway. So sway had a street promotions company. I intern for him. I fell in love with the. I was really good with the he kind of moved on. And that was really how we stepped in. I was like. I'm gonna take all your accounts if you're okay moving on i'm going to take on But yeah i. I absolutely oh my connection to entertainment my passion for it to sway and i tell him that as often as i can i i wish more young people now were in doing internships without my internship. There's a lot of things that i just wouldn't have been exposed to. And did he talks about that. He was the intern. Was like i'm willing to do anything to figure it out. And i think there's just so much value in interning and having people that you can look back when i think back this way i'm like man. What would my life have been. F- i hadn't have met him if i didn't interns remember. I had a kid started. The problem now is that they make it too complicated to be an intern. Yeah you gotta be in school. Experts didn't go to college. What about those kids from the hood who just got dry just got talent like the just need an opportunity waiting. We'll get him and that was me. I don't think nobody says the tone. Like like black woman i really truly and i think that when you especially as a black man when you see a crew of black women the first thing you think is home you think in your mom your grandma sisters whatever. I just think nobody told like black. Women are incredible where super passionate we are nurturing. So the other thing is we take time to be human. Were not just employees. Were not robots we very much so you know zooms with my team is a moment you know. Sometimes we pray sometimes. Somebody's having a hard time. They may cry. But i'm gonna tell you one thing they don't they're going to bang out an incredible marketing plan. I think you know. Companies that have is at the helm they see the difference. We put up the numbers. We're making change. We have a beautiful way of recruiting bright and influencing people want to work with us and for us and it goes a long way and you see it in your business. I'm super proud of the work. That i see black women doing especially the black woman in leadership and we look out for each other. This black excellence campaign. That's going on with entrepreneurship and businesses. So i wanna make sure that we talk about that. And that's where surat and i'm involved in that as well. You are. thank you so much. So we launched a campaign in the middle of the pandemic costs. Iraq stands in his really our opportunity to look. Everyone knows the rock is a brand. That's about fun and celebration. We're also a brand as anchored in doing the right thing and being a voice right and and it was important for us to make sure that people understand that you could have fun. You know you can be a part of culture but you can also be anchored in something so we launched roxanne's last year were kicking it off again This month and we purposely kicked it off towards the latter part of august because it's focus around black businesses and so the assumption is. Oh they're doing this program for black business month and we're like no we. We're doing programs for black businesses. Three hundred sixty five days a year working with you to interview some of those businesses and highlight some of those businesses. That was important to work with you. Because you are pioneering you know your entrepreneurial journey as a black business owner and it's inspiring people right and so there's a connect connection there so sarah stands you know is just launching. An initiative around black businesses were highlighting three businesses in new york businesses. The happened to be owned by black women which were really excited about. We work with some mentors to identify some of those news either way and tina's.

Us military planes have left afghanistan. And here's general frank. Mackenzie was the commander of us. Central command speaking at the pentagon about not getting everyone out. Even the last planes have left. Look there's a lot of heartbreak associated with this departure. We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out. But i think it would state another ten days louis. We wouldn't have gotten everybody out that we wanted to get out and they're still would have been people who have been disappointed with that is a tough situation. But i want to emphasize again at simply because we have left at doesn't mean the opportunities for both americans that are in afghanistan that wanna leave and an afghans. You wanna leave. They will not be denied that opportunity. I think our department of state gonna work that very hard in the days weeks and be really got everybody out. I pray nobody miss fleiss. They said there's a small number of americans and a two hundred and they said it's likely a number that's closer to one hundred americans who remained in afghanistan and wants to leave now thirty. I i mean they were trying to get everybody out. I don't know why they're still some people That haven't been able to get there. They said the last five flights didn't even have any. Us citizens on their own out. American book spirit airlines all right in addition to that He also talked about the threat of terror now. How high is that turf. Threats going to be very high. But i think what we'll do is we will work with the taliban and work with the next government of afghanistan afghanistan whatever his characterization is going to be in order to ensure that our citizens are protected and that they have an opportunity to To leave as you know we still have. A variety of significant leverage over whatever future government exists in kabul and. I and i have no doubt that the department of state will fully exercise that leverage. You have any continent in their ability to secure the city right now. The taliban i think they're going to be challenged to secure the city. I'm on high alert. Know the next couple of because it's the twenty anniversary of nine eleven in america's very vulnerable right now. You just never know if they wanted to do something. This would be a good opportunity for them. Right and video from kabul airport does show that they were celebrating. Taliban was celebrating and saying this victory belongs to us all and congratulating the people of afghanistan. So they're looking at this as a victory a war that lasted almost twenty years. The obstinate ops is gone up. Sled seem so. Yeah so he said they're going to actually talk to the leader of the taliban they said they have to engage And so it's no way around engaging to have to deal with them. You know isis k. Is like the taliban saying that. They're are not the way that they used to be. The jacksonian measures that they used to take. But a lotta people are on high alert that things are going to revert back to what it used to be like before because it's supposed to be a lot more moderate now but isis k. is not supposedly part of the taliban. It's terror group for the record. That's what trump was doing and he got flat for all right. Well that is trying to make a deal found page news all right. Get it off your chest.

The Next Big Idea
"ingrid" Discussed on The Next Big Idea
"Ingrid i wanna start. I guess at the beginning for me which is a few years ago. I went to audio and gave a talk kind of sitting like this and you came up afterward. And you're told me about a blog that you were writing which i just found riveting i think it was called the aesthetics of joy. So how did you get started as a blogger. And what was that. How did you make time for it outside of your day. Job and nine other questions i ask you in a minute. Okay okay so i fell into blogging. My accident i started. I was sitting at pratt. I was studying industrial design. And i had this review wear a professor Looked at my work and he said it felt joyful to him. It made him feel choice. And i and this was really weird to me. Because i had i had always thought of joy as this ephemeral thing and so when the professor said this i it began this sort of process of inquiry for me where i started to try to. You know professors in the moment couldn't answer the question and so then i set out to try to answer this question for myself. I actually i think started a blog to sort of chronicle all my design explorations. All of what i was learning and i quickly found that this question became the only thing i wanted to write about and so i started another blog so i had an initial blog called sketchbook and it was just like where i scribbled things and then i you know i keep asking these questions about these of joy. A that point had of figured out that. That's what i was calling it. And so i just moved all those posts over to this new blog and that was where i spend all my time and i just kept finding examples and finding stories and that was how it began. So it's really weird for a professor to say that any work anyone does give them joy but but it happened in your case. What was it about your work. Was your professor actually able to identify the sources that part of the puzzle. Oh that was part of the problem is that they just said you know. There's a lot of hand waved designers to wait their hands. That's like how we communicate We communicate like scribbles and also like by waving our hands around news very intuitive discipline. I think that's one of the problems with design is that it is very intuitive. And so for me. I really wanted to understand where this came from. Like what was the source of it. And i have to say so. My my dad is here tonight. And i My dad's a neurologist. And i grew up with two doctors as parents and so i think for me. Science was always a part of my upbringing. Very sorry there was a lot of jargon at the dinner table. You know there was a lot of. But but i think as a result i really wanted to understand the why and in design school. There's not a lot of why there's just a lot of it's really about the what and how it makes people feel people really care like designers really care about that but they don't often there isn't a bridge between the people who are studying objects and how they make us feel what's happening in our minds when we encounter things and so for me. It was the question of. How do i bridge that gap. And how do i actually bring some of what. Scientists are discovering into the practice of design. And so for a while. at least. You're you're during the blog underside. And you're doing design work fulltime for really longtime. Luckily so i started the blog in two thousand nine and i finished my masters at the end of that year pratt and then i went to work for audio. That same started in two thousand. Ten idea on january and i was working on the blog on the side for six years while i was at idaho sometimes with vigor. And sometimes not as you know. Sometimes you get caught up in the day-to-day but it was always there for me. And i think having it became a threat and also some of the early you know having become known by people early on in the design field made it easy to always come back to because people thought of me as you know the aesthetics of joy girl so i wanna to talk about how how you actually create joy or i feel like i made a lot of kind of aspiring. Thor's where they explained their ideas and kind of related to something that's already been done or maybe that could work and you in a category of your own. Which was you started talking about the joint. This is one. This is a book to. This is an idea that i have not seen anyone right. About which that i always thought joy came from the insider from our interactions. No it's actually designed all around you like okay as somebody who's completely artistically clueless. I would like to know more about this minimum. Would like to one day. Go to a museum and feel some joy. And so i. I'd love to hear for starters. What are some of the key principles of designing an environment. That is joyful. Are we sitting in one right now. Okay so we back up and talk a little bit about the joy how this came about. So once i started to explore this question of how things create joy because i had the same biases that you know. It's internal and especially i think as a cultural. We're told that our stuff is supposed to be incidental and that we should be able to be happy anywhere. We should be able to turn inward and be able to find are sort of inner paradise wherever we go and should be able to tune out whatever stuff is in our environment that might be annoying or dreaming or whatever that we should be able to rise up of right. And so as i started takes worthy started asking people about the things that brought them joy i started to notice that there were certain patterns visual patterns And censorial patterns. We see bright color festivals. If you go anywhere in the world you go to a festival see color and you try to imagine that festival you take all the decorations and you make them like black and gray. Turn them into monochrome. Something's missing right. So that seemed to be like one of these aesthetics of joy and then nature. You know we find so much joy in nature and so that was another. So i started noticing all these features and that's what became the aesthetics of joy. It was like having a dakota ring for joy for these things that spark joy within us so Of mentioned a few bright colors one. And what i thought was interesting was when i started to research these specific aesthetics. I started to find you know insights that showed studies that showed that the influence our performance and our wellbeing and so for example studies that show that bright color in work environments makes people more alert friendly confident joyful interested. Like you know that's something that means that this isn't just an idle pleasure but it actually influences are functioning ingrid also began talking to neurologists and evolutionary psychologists about how it works in the brain and how it got that way okay. Science shows that bright colors make us happy. But can you tell me why with their help. She began to understand how one orange building could flip the switch on an entire cities mood. Twenty five million years ago. Our primate ancestors were nocturnal and colorblind. But then a particularly courageous band monkeys ventured out into the daylight during the daytime color could relate important information about where to find food. Were younger and more nutritious than green leaves. Saturated colors indicated riper. More sugar dense fruits overtime win. Some monkeys developed the ability to see colors. They basically gained superpowers. Their selective advantage was secured and those monkeys eventually became us as humans are color. Vision is still basically a heat map for nutrition once ingrid understood this toronto. Transformation suddenly made sense of course. Orange building is an edible by bright colors still register as yummy food and ping our reward circuit colorless landscapes trigger a sense of scarcity. They put us on edge but colorful landscapes led us relax. They offer us a sense of security. Like we've found ourselves a little slice of the savannah that can feed our family.
The Next Big Idea
"ingrid" Discussed on The Next Big Idea
"Well folks it's summertime. don't you love it. Flowers are blooming. The wind is turning pink red yellow and blue beach balls or flying through the air. The world is awash with color. It's enough to make you feel downright giddy and don't just take my word for it the world around you in all of its technicolor. Glory has the power to brighten. your mood. that's something. I learned from a wonderful book. By ingrid fatality called joyful the surprising power of ordinary things to create extraordinary happiness ingrid spoke with expedited club curator. Adam grant last season and we turn that conversation into an episode of this show. It's one of my all time favorites and among our most popular ever. If you haven't heard it before i have a hunch you're gonna love it and if you have heard before there's never a bad time to be reminded. The joy is all around us. We just have to know where to look for it. It's the year two thousand and thirty six year old edi. rama has just been elected mayor of tirana. the capital of 'albania. He's not a politician. It's the first time he's been elected to anything on his walk to city hall. He passes mazes of illegal kiosks where city parks used to be he steps around heaps of uncollected trash rotten food broken furniture. Who knows what else. Tirana has run out of money. Most depressing of all everything is grey under communist rule. Toronto tore down its turkish baths and bazaars and erected endless rows of soviet style apartment buildings there boxy and drab and rama can't help but think that they match the city's mood sure the iron curtain may have been lifted but life in toronto is gloomier than ever as mayor his job to set things right he has little experience and no funds to work with but he does have one trick up his sleeve. He has an eye for color in a tedtalk. Rama told the audience. You might bring us life. I was an artist. I still paint. I love art. I love joy with color can give to our lives so rama. Turn to what he knows best. He chooses a building in the heart of town and has it painted a radiant sunkissed shade of orange. He wants to signal from the get. Go that his tenure in office will be different at first. The sudden appearance of color causes traffic jams. Do people love it hated. It's hard to tell. Mostly they're just shocked so rama makes a poll for the residents of toronto with just two questions first question. What do you think of the color. Do you like it the second. Do you want it to stop the first question. Sixty three percent of people said yes. We like thirty seven said no. We don't like about the second question half of them. That didn't like it. They wanted it to continue so rama paints more buildings and he adds more color palette lime green cherry red beyond yellow the spread across the ones grey city. And as they do the people's mood begins to brighton. Big noise raised up. What is this what is happening. What colors are doing to us. Citizens tell him they feel energized more connected to their city. They stopped littering. They start going out more often. Cafes and restaurants spill into the streets over the next five years the trend continues. The number of businesses in toronto triples tax revenue increases. Six times over. There's now money for public development projects like planting trees and tearing down illegal buildings by two thousand five. Toronto is hardly disneyland. But it's dramatically different city and when mayorov it looks back on the changes. He can't shake the image of that one orange building. The spark that started it all that first splash of joy on a barren landscape designer. Ingrid fatality has thought a lot about joy both as a feeling and as a science and in her new book joyful she makes the case for how a single coat of paint can transform a city. Conventional thinking is that real joy comes from within. It comes from a sunny disposition. Or from exercise or meditation it comes from how we look at the world and our place in it. We all know what it doesn't come from material possessions new clothes expensive jewelry and it doesn't come from fleeting pleasures like manicures. Fresh cut flowers. Real joy is deep. It has nothing to do with surface. Things ingrid fatale says we couldn't be more wrong as a former design director at the global innovation firm. Idaho ingrid has spent her career figuring out how to design objects and spaces and experiences that delivered joy she shares what she's learned in her book joyful the surprising power of ordinary things to create extraordinary happiness.

"Lincoln has built. Its following of more than seven hundred million people by promising to help you find a job now at wants to help you find a new and totally different career. With millions of americans and employed right now an entire laid flat by the pandemic. It's undeniably difficult for many people find new jobs without changing roles and industries. The first challenges identifying your transferable skills. That advice is as old as the hills. The much tougher challenges to figure out how to apply transferable skills in jobs in industries. You may never have considered. That's where linked ends new career explorer to comes in if flip typical job searching on its head rather than searching for a particular job say operations manager you enter one of your most recent titles by mining linked ends. Massive data set the to identify multiple skills. You probably already have then. It suggests other roles where those skills overlap according to a company blog. Post tool references. Thirty six thousand career skills and six thousand job. Titles results are matched up by the percentage of skills that can transfer for instance enter the job of co founder. And you'll see that eighty percent of your skills are also used by board members. The example linked in uses is more common an out of work food server. It turns out a waiter or waitress. Typically has more than seventy percent of the skills needed to succeed in customer service role. The good news linked and also identifies high demand jobs as it happens. Customer service specialists or at the top of that list. Career explore then identifies open jobs in that new career in a third column. The tool suggest skills. You may need to build to help make the leap not. Surprisingly it directs you. To linked learning courses offering such clear direction toward a new career makes a lot of sense more than forty five percent of people never explore career change. Because they don't know where to start. According to a survey of two thousand unemployed professionals commissioned by linked in paul heads up economic policy research at linked and he told the new york times many members didn't necessarily know what job transitions were available to them. Moreover about a third of the survey respondents said they felt unqualified for other industries had no connections. There were didn't know how their skills translated the times reported linked in made the new tool available late last month. In beta to try it out navigate to opportunity dot linked in dot com. It's free not part of lincoln's premium subscription which ranges from thirty dollars to one hundred twenty dollars a month with more and more people using linked in as the pandemic continues to take a toll on the economy the platforms revenues are way up sixteen percent over the same quarter last year.

London suggests although note that many of those classes are also free such a seemingly. Comprehensive system means the online job. Search business has evolved dramatically. It's far more complex and sophisticated than it was not that long ago when online platforms mainly mimicked classified ads. Like linked in smaller rivals ziprecruiter also promotes training to job seekers. Late last month ziprecruiter announced a new platform offering two hundred fifty different classes. The classes come from training companies collaborating with the company including core. Sarah skill share x.

Are we just going to have to get used to dealing with outbreaks?
"So one of the things that Australia has really relied on throughout the hall coronavirus pandemic sci-fi is lockdown as a way of getting a handle on what's happening and keeping cases to a minimum. We've seen that really happening in Victoria and a few days ago a special envoy from the World Health Organization was talking about how lockdowns shouldn't be the only sort of tool. That countries used to Cape a handle on the coronavirus and I think that some people in Victoria have sort of used those comments from the WHO as a reason to sort of say, we should be lifting Victoria's lockdown now but it's a bit more nuanced than that. Isn't it? This nuanced? We went into lockdown in March largely to stop the growing pandemic but also to allow the infrastructure for contracting testing to get into place, which is what the WHO, who say. There was an outbreak in Victoria now that I break in Victoria would have killed many many more people had they not to lockdown but in part the outbreak was due to a failure in contracting and testing at that time. So in many ways, they fulfilled whol criteria for lockdown, which is time to get your contact tracing and testing into shape, and in fact, through the second wave in. Victoria that's indeed what they've done some situation where Victoria New South. Wales are pretty XY Pixie in terms of unknown cases number of cases a day. Sorry Pixie. What the hell does that mean some kind of Scottish thing I grew up with meeting. You know roughly equal fair fair enough trying to get a new phrase into the Australian dictionary from Scotland. Anyway. Back to the point the point being. That, you said whereas in Victoria roughly equal and the argument is probably quite well made that there's not a lot of reason why you shouldn't have the restrictions roughly the same in both states the problem of Victoria is you don't WanNa let the break off suddenly because people will just start turning up on masters include a beach which means crowding into trams, etc, etc. so you've got up. Do fairly slowly and carefully, but the endpoint quite soon could be a similar situation to New South. Wales. But we've got to get used to and it's not a trivial phrase a new covid normal. We promised a few days ago that we were going to stop comparing new, south Wales and Victoria, but let's just do it one more time new south. Wales does seem to have like you say. Exceed Pixie level of similar levels virus to what we're seeing in Victoria or at least the confirmed cases that are coming through, and they don't have as many restrictions on them, and we do know as well that it's probably at least a year before we're going to have any kind of vaccine available to that sort of like what we're thinking of as being a trigger for going back to what we used to have as a normal life is what's happening in New South. Wales. Perhaps, a model for what Ustralia could look like over the next year. Well, I think West Australians queenslanders south. Australians would bridal a that because they've got almost nothing happening and they're saying, well, why should we have? Wills has belichick focused on new, south Wales and Victoria for the moment. But I think it is something that queenslanders and others need to be cognizant off is this something we should get used to what we're talking about here for people who don't live in New South Wales is an outbreak from GP clinic now, getting used to is different from getting complacent. So yes I think you gotta get used to the fact that there will be small outbreaks but what we should not do tolerate them and so they're. They're not to be tolerated and our behavior needs to change in the short to medium term which is. Continuing careful social distancing. I believe in new. South. Wales. It should be mandatory mask in public transport just as an extra layer of security. You don't seem to be going that way and really getting on top of outbreaks and people being prepared to get tested if symptoms are in areas where there are outbreaks and if we can do that, then we can cope with these outbreaks but we can't just say. Another outbreak. Let's move on. It's another outbreak. Oh, this could be the moment where this could be the hotel quarantine equivalent moment that we hadn't. In Victoria, whereas if we ignore it is going to get out of control. So get used to not really be able to deal with yes. But just quickly on that, we're talking about being able to be responsive to outbreaks but we see in Shepperton in regional Victoria, they had a the little outbreak happening there people have told to go on to get tested they've gone to go and get tested. They've done what's been asked but they haven't been. Able to access testing this huge queues, how are we going to be out of style up to these? Well, that's for health departments to sort out, but they've got to be ready for particularly in rural and regional areas because this is something that you just need one truck driver to have arrived in a place in spread it and we've already seen somebody hiding away in trying to get into Queensland you just need one person and to move into our networks and off. So everywhere it's got to be ready and you to be ready for scale up and a plan for scale up so. Somebody throws a switch and people start with doing and they set up to prop up clinics, and within a few hours you've got it all going and that's what people have got to plan for and the best thing that can happen is you never have to institute your emergency response, but your emergency response has got to be really Schmidt and if he wants to know. More about how we've tooled up for contact tracing, how good it is, they listen to yesterday's Khurana cast with Ryan McIntyre where we covered a lot of these issues and that chat with Rhino was so interesting and there was stuff in there that we couldn't fit into yesterday's show. So we thought we'd bring it back again in prerecorded form to answer a question from Ingrid. Where Ingrid's ask if a person who has the virus uses a toilet does the next person inhale the virus spray in the toilet is flushed with the lead up and is the virus in urine faeces? Yum. This is just the sort of question that croquettes listeners love energy with toilets. Let's have a listen to yesterday's comments by Rhino McIntyre, which weren't in the krona cast. So this is a bonus we're talking about. And toilets on aeroplanes. We do know that there is a risk with closed transport vehicles with its planes buses. There's been a number of outbreaks already described on airplanes on buses and other vehicles including A. A navy ship whether it was a very, very high tech right? the Theodore Roosevelt in the US. The risk isn't just from Aerosol, droplets spread I mean we know that the highest risk isn't people sitting closest to the infected person and that's been born out in previous studies with diseases like to book your license and Maizels. But the toilet is also respected. There was one study where they were known infected people on board everybody was wearing a mosque and one of the people who became infected took the mosque off in the toilet. So we know that flushing the toilet can create aerosolize -ation. Probably. Less. So on an airplane toilet because of the nature of those toilets that don't have water swilling around, but they still would be rissole generation from the flushing action. So, the hall toilet is probably highly contaminated. So even if you wash your hands afterwards, you could breathe in contaminated aerosols than when you come out even just touching the door handle would be a risk. So that's that's probably one of the real hot spots on an airplane. That was Professor Rhino McIntyre who is professor of global biosecurity at Curbing University of New South Wales
A Visit with the Main Street Vegan, Victoria Moran
"I. WanNa start off by asking you. So your brand is main street Vegan. Why mainstream? Vegan? Well it's a story actually rip I went to a pita fundraiser late in two thousand ten and they showed videos and I've been seeing videos like this for forty years. It took me quite a while to get from. Vegetarian Vegan back in the day. So I've been around this movement for ever. And I've seen those videos about things that humans do to animals but that night, my heart was extra. And all I wanted to do was write a check for one hundred, thousand dollars in hand it to the pita founder Ingrid newkirk and say here, go fix something but the check would have bounced. So I got on the train thinking okay. What's the plan B. and I literally had inspiration I don't know how to explain this. You know you could say God you could say angels on what all I know is that it came to me very clearly okay you don't have one hundred, thousand K. spare but what you can do is make your. Next Book Main Street Vegan, we want it to be geared to the young woman that you were in Wheaton Illinois in nineteen eighty three when you finally stopped messing around and became a one hundred percent fulltime Vegan it needs to have forty short chapters with a recipe at the end of each one and I'm just kind of taking notes in my head of I could do this, I can do this. So my wonderful literary agent sold the proposal to torture Penguin and the editor called to say so happy to have you happy to have the book. But. We hate main street. You need to change the title and they'd bought it. So I had to do something and I'm coming up with these other titles and they were so boring. But I kept trying to write and then I had a begin miracle and I really do believe that this is the age of those believed that this is the time when all these other ridiculous diets are going to go. The way of the dinosaur plant based is going to be the only thing that sensible people are interested in and the idea that we are killing our fellow beings and destroying the planet is going to start to look like are you serious people really did that? So my Vegan Miracle That day. Was Walking up Broadway. We saw somebody so famous, you can recognize him from the back and that was Michael Moore Now, he had liked another book that I had written a weight loss book fit from within, and so I just handed my card to the woman who was with him and a few seconds. Later I hear Victoria there is Michael Moore, following me up Broadway and we started talking and then we started talking on the phone and on one of these phone conversations I said the book that I'm supposed to write should be called mainstreet Vegan publisher hates main street he said they're wrong. Let me talk to him talk to them so. In a three way call with an Academy Award winner my editor in me he convinced her she convinced the higher ups and when she called to say Main Street Vegan is your title everything else started to pop and I've been given my mission for the rest of my life. So why main street because this thing that we do whether we're coming from the health or the environment or the animals or whatever this is for everybody this is not some elitist thing. We don't have to be rich. We don't have to be leftover hippies or punk rockers. We can just be who we are eat reasonably and love more and to me that's Main Street That is mainstream nuts. you landed on something that just resonated and you knew of his right thing. And I grew up two blocks off main street in Kansas City Missouri. So that may have had something to do with it and mainstream Vegan was at your eighth or Ninth Book Because you've written. Now Than Books Right I've written thirteen. So Main Street Vegan would've been eleven. And

6 Life Areas Youre Avoiding: And 4 Ways to Face Them Head On by Ingrid Y Helander
"Six life areas you're avoiding, and for ways to face them head on by Ingrid Y Hollander of Ingrid why Hallander Ellum T. dot com? You might call avoidance being lazy unmotivated, depressed freaked out or disliking conflict. But if you are human, you probably know the warning signs when you start avoiding avoiding can become a way of life. If you're not careful robbing you of time relationship money fun and other pleasures here are few target areas and examples of voidance that I see in my office every day. Work Life. You're successful career requires consistent task completion, and suddenly you are online shopping. Crazy. Physical Health. There are two wasteful hours before you get ready for work and rather than going to the gym you roll over and go back to sleep. Relationship. Small disagreement happens and use sullenly walk away from your partner. Social. A friend's invitation weights in your inbox and you tell yourself you'll think about whether to attend or not later. Spiritual Your Yoga, Mat and journal sit in the corner and you daily pass them by. And? Financial. Six bills said in your mail pile. He said Masai knowing that a simple check could pay them tomorrow. Sound familiar. What's happening when you avoid and what can you do about it? Avoiding is seldom a fully conscious choice. Elizabeth Scott s explains this frustrating tendency. This way quote avoidance coping also known as Avoidance Coping Avoidance Behaviors and escape coping is a maladaptive form of coping that involves changing our behavior to try to avoid thinking or feeling things that are uncomfortable and quote. Basically avoidance is bitch will coping skill aimed at reducing pain that is reinforced each time you do it. Sadly. The more you avoid the parts of your life that feel uncomfortable. The more shame you're likely to feel about those parts of your life to shame intern causes more discomfort and hence more avoidance. If you tend to worry in are easily overwhelmed, it can be significantly difficult to simply face tasks and situations and do the thing before you is not your fault and is not a joking matter. Just do it is a great model for selling shoes, but it's not so easy for anxious people to implement. So. What can you do today to head on face those things in life you tend to avoid and do so without crumbling in a corner later Here four ways to face her avoidance had on. Now and very gently. Number one acknowledge avoidance without beating yourself up. So. Yes. Maybe you don't WanNa talk to your loved one about a particular topic. Perhaps you have not exercised or prayed or meditated in many moons maybe the bills are on the back burner your friends wonder if you don't like them anymore, this happens to the very best of people simply acknowledging own that part of you is avoiding with as much compassion for your human self as possible if you get very upset with yourself or anyone else in this process, stop breathe and offer yourself at least one moment of compassion. Number. To write down everything you imagine you'd like to do if you weren't avoiding. Off of the suggestion for a few reasons, some people feel like they are lazy or. When in reality, they're getting nearly everything done in fine fashion for people who are highly driven or perfectionist, but don't own this about themselves. One way of keeping on task is constantly telling yourself that you are avoiding things for others. There's so much shame beneath the surface. This exercise can help you get a glimpse of hidden pain and allow this part of you to be seen by you. Then you can access more help with a therapist to get feeling better. And finally you may just be so accustomed to avoiding that imagining moving forward in a more confident manner is a wild new concept if soul be much easier to move toward the picture that you create in your mind's eye using all of your senses so play using your imagination. For example, in my fantasy world i. Any bill, write a check and send it off. Take my wife's hand and talk it through when I feel stressed wake after eight hours of sleep hop in my Wesson and head to the gym. Just play with it. The purpose is not to make you feel guilty. This is an exercise to increase your creativity and curiosity. Let your body and mind enjoy the play and possibility of doing everything in a way you would like to do it. You may feel inspired ready to embody what you imagine or maybe the thoughts feel to threatening and cause increased. Shame. Conversely, you discover that you are in reality facing a large portion of life, but you habitually use the mantra that you are avoiding. Just notice and write down. Will you discover? Number three start with a small change in the easiest of the six targets. See found some area of avoidance and you can see how you'd like the situation to feel different. Great. Begin by choosing from your list of avoidance is just one little action. You can take thou fuel really terrific or at least good when it's done, make it one with just enough challenge to pursue but not so much challenge that it is emotionally overwhelming for you. You really want to succeed on the smaller items here. So feel free to break any task down into a smaller portion. Maybe, spend one minute meditating this week rather than entire yoga or meditation session. Perhaps, he do fifty push-ups before work. Instead of going to the gym, you could write your partner, a letter of appreciation or reply to a couple of work emails.

Social Intelligence with Blaise Aguera y Arcas
"All right everyone still here in in Vancouver at Noor ups continuing our coverage of this incredible conference and I've got the pleasure of being seated with bless Aguado. yuccas blesses is a distinguished scientist with Google. Ai Bless welcome to the Tomo podcast. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me absolutely so you are doing an invited. Talk here at the conference tomorrow morning on Social Intelligence and we're going to dig into what exactly that means for you but before we do love to get a bit of your background sure sure so It's a little motley. I started off in physics undergraduate at Princeton and I studied physics and applied math. There I I took a year off between my third and fourth years because I was not a very good student and I really started to get into into biophysics this X.. Pretty heavily so you're euro for after during during a or a little bit a little bit before and then during I worked for for a little while while in there he was working on bacterial Metaxas. That actually gonNA figure a little bit into mytalk tomorrow morning. So it's the behaviors years of of the intelligent behaviors of bacteria. And how does that. They that they find food. There obviously a really small simple system but maybe not quite as simple as people think okay and end and then from there My my next adviser Bill Bialik is somebody with a physics background. As well but also computational neuroscientist. He ran this course in woods. Hole at the marine. Biological lab called methods and computational neuroscientists it methods and computational science I don't I don't know if you're familiar or how many of your listeners are with with with them deal with marine biological laboratory but it's this place where a lot of Princeton notes on Cape Cod. Okay and so. It's right on the elbow of Kit. Kat across from Martha's vineyard okay this this little tiny town. It's very cute. And there's this kind of ramshackle lab that's been there since the nineteenth century tree that That a lot of a lot of visiting Sort of neuroscientists and biologists have been going for many many years A lot of really basic basic discoveries in science where made their. Oh so it's kind of this cool place. And and at this. Course at nothing computational neuroscience I I met my now wife Adrian Hill. Oh so she also came up in physics and Studied originally chaos and turbulence and fluid dynamics comics and things like this and was making the switch to puck additional science so we met there and and then she ended up getting a faculty job at University of Washington which is how we ended up moving to Seattle and around that time I started a company And was no longer really sleep. Part of academia at that point and the company got acquired by Microsoft couple of years later and they come into doing computer vision type of work or a it's a somewhat somewhat doing sort of multi resolution representations of of documents of of various kinds. It was okay. It was a combination of wave. Latouche kind of tricks six and and you X.. If I think wave letters like Kryptonite for me that was the hardest thing that I studied in Grad School. For whatever reason it was very difficult to rock it was it was hard. Yeah my my advisor. In Grad School in applied math was ingrid do bitchy who was one of the inventors intercept wavelength. Yeah she was she was absolutely wonderful very very smart very kind and I think I think one of the greatest living mathematicians if I. I don't know maybe unbiased. But Anyway Yeah Microsoft acquired it and I did immediately turn the team toward more four kind of computer vision e things right after that so photosynthesis which started off the photo tourism project by University of Washington professor and Microsoft research scientists together. With with their Grad student snively was in three D. reconstructions environments from the images and that was really my introduction to computer vision Asian. That was pretty classical. Wasn't like deep nuts or anything like this geometric computer vision but I kind of fell in love with that with that field and ended up at Microsoft Echo soft. You know sort of doing a lot of leading teams doing that kind of work so Microsoft's OCR team and they're kind of photographic treat type teams the teams that ended up doing a lot of work for a hollow Lens tracking The head using our facing cameras. All that kind of stuff was okay was part of my team at the time so I was at Microsoft for seven years I also was the CTO of bing maps which also had some kind of computer vision? The are photographic tree kind of stuff going on and being mobile and then I am I went to Google. That was six years ago. I come across so many people that are in this field that have some connection to bang. Yeah I shouldn't I shouldn't Bad I mean it was it was it was creative and scrappy at the time You know whether whether Microsoft was really committed to running these things I guess it. It's anybody's guess right but but yeah. I mean one of the most one of the reasons that I ended up leaving Microsoft was because about six years ago they had just Kind of lost the phone phone war and it became clear that they were going to be moving away from being a consumer focused company. We're GONNA start working on just enterprise stuff and I wasn't that interesting to me and that was around the same time. I'm also that did the whole deep learning revolution was really getting into full. Swing and I was very excited about about some of machine learning and computational neuroscience verging and Google is the obvious place. where the kind of hotbed of of a lot of that so nice? So what do you research. Google well at Google I started a team. UNCALLED CEREBRAL. With is not a name that we've generally used in public but that's not at all heading. Thank you it's the plural of brain. So there was a brain team already that you know Jeff. Jeff Teens started years before and I went to Google to start a team that would take how much more decentralized approach so rather than one brain. It'd be many brains. Everybody would have a little brain and I had a very augmentation focused point of view. You know the rather than having one giant running in a data center these things would have to shrink to democratize. There would have to go into devices. Run locally I had a lot of reasons for wanting to push in that direction including privacy Which I will talk about a bit tomorrow so mobile nets and a lot of these kind of efficient ways of running neural nets locally came from From our team again. I'm running. The you know the the the groups At Google the two things like oh CR and face recognition and a bunch of other sort of image understanding Primitives but we also power a lot of a lot of a or features chores or whatever you WANNA call them in android and also on other kinds of devices include including these little coral boards which are sort of an Iot kit for doing taking local I think those are just well. I guess it's maybe half a year ago at the developer conference drink. I have one. That's that's right that's right so yeah we're very excited about those cool he you mentioned OCR and Of all the things that we've talked about I think of that or it's probably easy easy to think of that as a solved problem the problem. But there's probably a lot of Even saying it. There's probably like this last mile problem. Where in order to get to usable or better levels of Accuracy and performance kind of that those last few percentage points are are really hard to get to. So you say I mean it solves problem and yeah I mean. It's good enough for practical use engines. That are good enough for practical use but a of of course. Extra percentage points are always useful. A little bit more is always better but also a team that I run at Microsoft was still using a lot of these classical techniques that would I you know they'll have a whole pipeline of different stages first segmenting out letters and then you know doing template matching and then using language modeling all kinds of like this and the direction that that that I think in the end that the you know the people in the team believe are really the most fruitful now are much more and much more neural so imagine smoke scanner that scans the entire line maybe by directionally and emits a string of characters. Kind of like a speech engine. Might if you you do it that way then you know. Join join letters and ligature is. Don't matter right cursive doesn't matter handwriting. And you don't print could be the same Arabic and other languages. That don't have good distinctions between letters. I ain't going but rather that don't that don't distinguish clearly between letters in the more cursive sort of approach. All of those things work and that sort of general and also just weird funds. There are a lot of things that are easy for us to read that a classic engine right so thinking about it more like a real vision problem some of the brain behind it as opposed to just a classical kind of letter clustering problem with the language model talked on

The video network has quietly added the -bility feature films for free YouTube cut a deal with movie studio MGM to offer over one hundred of its films. Most of them, you haven't heard of the ones you have heard, of course, would be the rocky and Pink Panther movies. The original Terminator, legally blonde. And then it all falls downhill from there missing in action or films from other studios like Twentieth Century, Fox, Walt Disney Sony, Warner Brothers and paramount. But it's a start, you know, that YouTube is best known as the home of the short video clip, although some of its creators who make videos for YouTube like Shane Dawson and Logan Paul have recently been experimenting with longer original productions additionally YouTube is embarked upon longer original says part of the YouTube premium offering which. Each offer an ad free way to watch in Kane access to exclusive content. So these YouTube films feature ads unless you subscribe to the nine ninety nine monthly YouTube premium offering they appeared directly under the collection of recently released films and TV shows that YouTube currently offers for rent and sale. I think of YouTube is a place to watch short video clips and highlights from comedy shows not full length films, but I checked out the movie section and they've got all the trend movies, and and more. I saw crazy risks crazy. Rich Asians is there. Disney's the incredible too. And they're even advertising current hits. Like a star is born in bohemian rhapsody in the coming soon section expect to pay around five dollars to rent twenty dollars to own YouTube. Also offers episodes and seasons of popular TV shows like AMC's better. Call Saul NBC's, the good place in the classic. I edition of Star Trek at three bucks per episode where ten dollars to fifteen dollars for the complete season similar pricing to how apple does it on I tunes and Amazon with prime video. Now, you may not have heard, but in recent weeks, there's been an outcry over AT&_T's decision to kill the film struck subscription movie services, which is one of the few places online. We're film fans could get access to watching old classics be a streaming think about it. When's the last time you found a classic movie on Netflix? There are a handful on Amazon prime video, but most of them you have to pay to watch it just check it out the next time one of the Hollywood greats dies like Neil, Simon. And then go try to find one of his his or her films to to watch streaming. It's pretty rough. Now, many film pants have wondered where today's generation we'd get the classics like Charlie Chaplin's city lights, duck soup by the Marx brothers or Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart in Ingrid. Bergman not on Netflix Amazon prime, but they are all available on YouTube Ditto for itunes in food do but they cost to ninety nine to three. Ninety nine to view, and that ten dollars monthly from films truck was clearly a better deal, what YouTube is doing with the film's makes a lot of sense because you may not be aware of this. But nearly twenty percent of YouTube Ewing now done on TV's either on smart sets with the built in YouTube app where via streaming players like Roku, apple TV which bring the YouTube app to TV sets.
