"Day. And so I just always look at this as I get to connect with people and I get to meet people all over the world, but share the same passions and interests that I do, and I can connect with people on that unique causes, rad level versus anybody else. Yeah, and I think to touch on Jake, Burton, you know, you said this multi-million dollar business, but he also created a culture, which not many people, we can't really pinpoint many people that created a culture. And he created one, he created a movement, and I don't think he ever had a plan to have it grow into anything like this. And if anyone hasn't watched right on yet, it's on HBO. It's the story of Jake Burton. It explains it, but it became an Olympic sport. And like he didn't think that was going to happen. I think he was just stubborn. And he refused to listen to anybody else in the greatest way. Stubborn is always a bad term, but I think stubbornness can be great. And definitely created a culture. And I think of I always call skiing or snowboarding or any type of, I like to not categorize them. If you're sliding on snow and having fun, I try to support you. If you're on ski boards, I try to be a fan. I don't care. But it's art. It really is, 'cause we think about how our clothes are going to look and what's going to match. And like, you know, how we're going to wear, you know, are we going to wear skinny jeans or whatever. It's all art, how you're going to land. Are you going to land with a heavy head? Are you going to land looking back? That's your art. And you're creating something live. You know, certain people have certain writing styles and people like hang their arms like a T. Rex, like real weird, I kind of do more of like a big sweeping eagle when I go down the hill and I can't get rid of it, but that's my snowboard style and when I turn my arms go up and I'm will claim this on air that I am a great snowboarder. I've snowboarded for a long time. I actually just got a new snowboard so I'm back again. I was a skier for a long time. But that's my eagle style. It's not what I'm proud of, but it's the art that we create and it's so amazing and it's this whole movement and it's my favorite thing about snowboarding is that I think it's coming back. I think we lost it for a while. And I figured out the culture is coming back and the style is coming back and people are carving a snowboard again, which I love. Yep. It's so refreshing. Camber is bad. When snowboarding went to rocker, I was like, it's over. Rocker snowboard shouldn't exist. This is what we do. We need camber and we need to carve it we need to, there's a place for rocker, but like, so I'm pumped that snowboarding's back, and I've joined the movement again, so I'm back on a snowboard. And yeah, it's a culture and skiing same thing. Yeah, all of them. And I don't want I don't want it to be skiing or snowboarding. I want it to be sliding down snow with your Friends. And that's all it is. Yeah. And it's ruined many of lives in the greatest ways possible. And I'm speaking to all my Friends out there, my friend, Garrett, is an engineer, and quit. He's a waiter at Jackson hole, and I love him for it. And it'll be there forever. It'll ski and it'll be happy till the day he dies. And for that, I love him. And I love everyone else who's ruined their lives. For this sport, which we call sliding down snow. Yes. 1000% agree. It's amazing. So I don't want to keep you too much longer after we both ranted a little bit. What is next for you? What can we look forward to seeing? I know you're going to take a little social media break. So good on you for taking that break. But after that, where can people follow you? And what do you have coming up? What's exciting?.

"The next all of it it's the tenth anniversary of occupy Wall Street We'll look back at the movement that gripped downtown New York City in 2011 and take your calls Plus a documentary about the man who made snowboarding a thing The director of dear Ryder the Jake Burton story joins us I'm Alison Stewart join me for all of it weekdays at noon On WNYC It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Rachel Martin And I'm Steve We can not confirm today that Brazil is changing course in protecting the Amazon We can only report that Brazil says it is changing When Donald Trump was president of the United States president jair Bolsonaro of Brazil followed along with him mocking climate science His country slashed environmental budgets as farmers continued slashing and burning rainforest Now a different U.S. president is pushing for a different approach And though president Bolsonaro did not show up for a climate summit this month in Scotland his country is making promises We spoke with Brazil's representative at the summit ambassador paulino de carvalho Neto Will commit ourselves to reducing in 50% our emissions in 20 30 compared to 2005 So and besides that we've joined a declaration on forests and land use committing ourselves to end basically a league of deforestation as soon as possible And we also have a joint global methane plate So this is just to have a picture of what Brazil intends to do And obviously we need not only make announcements We need also to implement those commitments So that's our big challenge but it's not only for Brazil it's for every country who are part of this agreement the Paris agreement Yes of course ambassador there's a couple of key elements of this that I think would perhaps bring some observers almost to the point of despair one of them being deforestation and is going at such a rate in Brazil that it is hard to see how you would reverse that now Yeah we're doing our best I mean the ministry of the environment who is domestically responsible for dealing with issues pertaining to forest and environment at large they are joining efforts with our national police the ministry of justice and security in order to fight against illegal deforestation It's a huge huge challenge no doubt But that's what we want to do if we intend to achieve those goals that I've mentioned before Has your president not pursued policies moving in the opposite direction for example dismantling environmental agencies that are intended to fight deforestation Well what I could say is that since this year from April on when president Bolsonaro attended virtually a meeting a summit that was organized by President Biden with announced that we would come to net zero emissions in 2050 that we will and deforestation illegal deforestation before the end of this decade and that we are going to double the budget of the ministry of the environment who is as I said responsible for dealing with issues pertaining to forests We need to do our part and do our part mainly combating this deforestation So that's our commitment that it's what we want to do Does Brazil claim any right as many developing nations do in effect to pollute more than others for a time because your economy is still growing I mean obviously there is in the context of the climate convention which was begun in 1992 that the industrialized countries are the most responsible for let's say for trying to solve this problem But as I said before we want to be a part of a solution It's not a question of finger pointing but try to solve a problem that is global So we want to be a part of this of this solution One other thing ambassador when you talk about climate change in Brazil is that it's something that you can put in the context of self interest by which I mean diplomat from an island nation in the Pacific can obviously see what's at stake for them Americans in recent years with some of the news that we've had can see what's at stake for us can Brazilians look around them and see early signs of change that show that they must change the way that the world produces energy Yeah no doubt it's in our self interest to protect our forests and deforestation to try to have a more let's say decarbonize the economy in that respect It's always important to underline that Brazil has a mix of energy who is at least 50% of its energy mix is renewable So we are in that in that sense ahead of many developed countries So as I said we want to be a part of the solution We are trying our best It is in our self interest also to attain those girls because it on the economic side on the trade side It's quite essential to show to the world that we are on the good side of this process Ambassador polio desalvo Neto Thank you so much Thank you very much appreciate that Thank you Developing nations have a message at the climate summit in Scotland a message that has the benefit of being true the countries with the fewest resources face the greatest climate change threats To combat the disparity developed countries promised a $100 billion a year to help but they are not meeting that goal And Pierre's Lauren summer has more At a small house outside of Nairobi Kenya there's a big moment happening that's also big for the climate Winifred mboya musio is getting electricity at her home for the first time And installer from the company

"Is so. I'm sure that those those will be modified and they'll be wrong anyway patty so so it is what it is but hey let's let let's talk about a couple of other young players in terms of guys who guys who stood out young guys. Who made an impression on saturday guys who may not make the fifty three man roster but may have at least put themselves in position to to make the practice squad couple of guys for me who stood out. Were young offensive. Lineman jake burton Wide receiver slash special. Teamer met cole. Who made a really really nice play To me co was a guy who that's how you make an impression when you've only been on a roster for a week as you make a big play on special teams you get the attention of the head coach and maybe another guy who had a nice night was a defensive. Tackle david moore Miss maybe talk about those guys talk about anyone else that you might have seen Who made an impression up going to add. Raymond johnson as a potential practice quater I thought he flashed at times. But yeah i think you hit upon the the main guys. Ed You know just like you said right now the roster rules as they are and by the way i liked the new russell's i hope they keep them permanently. They the fact that you can move guys up and down off off the practice squad. It's kind of like you know you don't you. Don't have your heartbroken. If a guy doesn't make the the initial fifty three man roster you know what i mean because she know that. Oh there's always a chance you could bring that gap or you can always protect that guy. So it's kind of like you you you do have expanded roster without actually having expanded roster if that makes sense You know for me i. i'll tell you there are some intriguing guys. I think they have something in hegi. Heggie heggie right iraqi You know needs a little bit of work. 'cause he's still kind of on the raw side but there's some talent there for down the line because look jonathan harrison of. He's the backup center. He's only signed to a one year. Deal so i kind. I look at contracts to as kind of an indicator when putting together rosters and doing roster projections and say okay. The giants only have their backup center signed for one year of. He doesn't make it. What's your next option. Or if he does make it. What's the guy behind him. Potentially behind him going to do so. I factor all that in but the young guys. You're right Several them did make some impressions and It's going to be tough. I think the toughest spot if you're in if you're looking at the spot one physician group where the coaches are going to how i think the toughest call me. I'm going to say it's receiver because there are a lot of guys that have stood up. You know we took. We talked about sells matt whole Cj board is obviously had a pretty good game the other night So who's going to be at the bottom of the depth chart and you know it's gonna come down to special teams and you know just kind of going back to sales for a second. That was even though that that was by design that he didn't play special teams. I'm sorry you gotta see him on special teams because that's going to be a deciding factor so Those are some of the guys that I agree with. I agree that there. They made an impression on one last topic. Patty before we Before we call it a show for today we have to talk a little bit about. Could area's tony. I think I think we learned on saturday a little bit about why the young man's workload has been so light You know joe. Judge admitted finally that he's been dealing with an injury that he aggravated the injury in typical. Joe jug fashion. Joe judge fashion. We don't know fits an upper body injury lower body injury. We don't know if it's an ear infection we have no we have no ide -sego of bruised ego who knows But but at this point in time you know. There's been so many weird things with with canaries. Tony and and you know cove it and now this and skipping the the voluntary. Ota's he's had so few reps and so much field time at this point. That and i know people throw around the word. Boston this and that and it's way too early for for that kind of nonsense but but what i am concerned about at this point is how much the giants are going to be able to get from him early in the season. I mean at this point. I think it's very difficult for the young man to to be ready to contribute in the first part of the year. Would you agree with at least that much. Well let me ask you this. Do you remember beckham junior. And how his season or how his nfl career started. Do you remember the sequence. There had a hamstring injury. Missed i think the first four games of the season. How did his rookie year out. Pretty well as a matter of fact. Okay so i'm not saying that canaries. tony's odell beckham. i'm not saying. Odell beckham is cadaverous tony. But why couldn't canaries. Tony have a similar career path. Once he gets over the injury. I mean look. I mean it. The giants are in a playoff or bus mode. Which even though. John merigan say it. I think we can all agree that that is the the mantra i mean. Do you agree with that or just. The i don't know if it's i don't know if it's if it's playoffs or bust. Patty wanna winning cmih to me. It's they want a winning season. Okay there are there are to me. It's if if this is another five or six win season especially in a seventeen game season. Then they are. Problems are going to get made than we've got. We've got problems if it's if it's an eight nine win season playoffs or no playoffs. Then i think then. I think you're in a different place. Okay but the the point. I'm trying to make is i. Don't get the impression that there's as much stress on the rookies to contribute. I mean they want him to contribute. Don't get me wrong. But i'm not saying that it's a matter of life or death that they contribute whereas i get the impression that you know you're going to see could area's tony at some point during the year but is he going to be the number one receiver. No that's gonna be golladay. Your is he is. Qadir's tony gonna see as many snaps sterling. Shepard probably not will he see snap the same number steps as maybe dairy slayton. That that i could say. So darius tony's time will.

"Black kids were swimming to burn their skin them never to show up at these places again and that happened all over this country for years the history of the sierra club even is is is messy when you go back to its roots and people if you have that in your history right if you have that cultural in your history and your family you're in it's passed down. You don't go to these places or these spaces. Bad shit might happen to you. Of course you're going to learn to become learn to think that. Yeah maybe that's not for me or that is quote unquote in white activity. Or why would you be doing that white thing etc. That's one of the beautiful things about racism. Is it a few as a system if you teach long enough. And if it operates long enough the people who are subjected to it actually start to believe it. And that's what i would like to vessel some that. I wanna be a part of breaking. And i also implore people who have power in those spaces to understand that like yeah i as a black man who's visible in these spaces can can say things and get people's attention but it's people it's the people with real power the people who have real access. They can do ten billion times more than i can buy affecting their circles in having these conversations and figuring out ways to expand landscape and provide more access just with the things that they have in their toolbox. They don't have to go and join some special thing or formulated. Some big club organization. It's just like okay. What do i have access to that. I can help to change this even a little bit. Do you see any change at all. In the wake of the george floyd murder or any other trigger that the power players in the outdoor industry which i assume are like the patagonia 's north face and the all the ski company's right like i assume at a business level those companies would obviously play a huge role in this. Who do things doing a good job. He's doing a good job better job now or any job i think. Pentagon patagonia has taken some great steps. I've seen the way they have given platforms so there are lots one thing i can say is is. There are a lot of people of color. Indigenous people black people that have formulated groups to advocate for themselves. And do outreach. And what is cool. That i'm seeing are the brands who are locating the people that are doing it right and giving them a chance to have their voices amplified and to use their platforms to engage. More had been doing a great job with it. They have this podcast. They're doing called the trail ahead with an outdoor trail runner from from portland and A black woman and it's just so cool. The conversations that are being had and that these conversations are being amplified on the planet patagonia platform for people who normally wouldn't get to listen in and learn how various types of people engage in these spaces. I think the denigrate job. I mean i full disclosure. I sit on the board now burton snowboards. They invited me onto the board in november prior to that had never been a black person person of color. Who sat on that board. Would i have gotten that. Call up if it wasn't. George floyd i don't think so and i'm honored and humbled that never use thought would happen especially in the wake of jake burton's passing so i am so grateful to be able to get to to see their enthusiasm in wanting to build anti-racism and build inclusion more importantly into the culture of the brand in being an inclusive brand and that takes time to lab to build that into the dna of your brand. But they are looking to do. So i'm the scandalous Of america say they just they put a person of color on on their board recently. And i think people are learning like okay. The only way that we're going to be able to learn about these things is if we actually have the perspectives invoices of from within the bypass community. Helping us actually make decisions acting in a way that holds a mirror to us to show us like if you don't know you're blind spots putting the same people in the room that all have the same blind blind spots and saying like okay. Let's all this problem. Let's have a diversity initiative great. I've seen people posting like videos of like. Here's the diversity initiative and i'm looking around the pictures of mike. Is this like onion post. 'cause there's this you know so it's it's welcoming in those voices being okay with giving up a little bit of that power but as i tell people or brands that i consult like stop thinking about it from a place of giving up power and start thinking of it from a place of sharing power tree. An intern by sharing power. Creating more power. Giving yourself more fuel the opportunity to be a better brand in and in the end the more profitable brand. Because i tell people all the time You might want to look at the numbers of the demographics of this country and Where we're going to be in five ten fifteen years. You could continue to put your head in the sand and pretend like it's not a thing but Es numbers do not lie and these landscapes are going to need to be expanded for you to continue to function as a brand for your thing to be. Viable was just going to leave without you. Like i say we have lots of friends. We've met once. I haven't fallen you for a minute. You become the voice of my young you know shredding angsty teenage ripper self. You are a musician. You producer you host. You're going to act act as a stretch. I i make cameos from time to time.

We're not the only ones hawaii back in focus. Choose choose choose. Choose choose so we can get the bags. I'm excited. there's a. there's a brand that. I am a partner in called mami wata.
