"And finally, golf's first major championship of the year starts tomorrow. It's the PGA Championship at Harding Park in San Francisco. Tiger Woods is going to be in the field. He thinks it's going to be really weird, not having fans lining the fairways and the greens at a major, that's Ah Unknown. I don't know if anyone and Our generation's ever played without without fans in a major championship, it's gonna be very different. But it's still a major championship. It's still the best players in the world. We all understand that going into it, so there's plenty of energy From the competitive side, but a ce faras energy outside the ropes that is An unknown They'll get that energy elsewhere.

More Shows To Watch If You Liked HBO's Watchmen

"We're GONNA talk about recommendations. I for the long haul and these are things that we are either current or in the way back and there's this you know the. He is like when I sit down to try find something there's so much going on that I spent like an hour being watched I don't WanNa Watch. That should do this and it's like I, just want someone tell me what to watch. That's what we're going to hear for. Yeah. So we're GONNA basis off the some of the nominees for best show in the emmy categories I start off with HBO's watchmen as from Damon Lindelof this set in an alternative universe and drafting off the ground and comic book watchmen is It's like this dazzling procedure designed to also make you think that twenty six emmy nominations, the most of any serious. Like NERF gun to your head best show of the year. What would you say? Oh, it's watchmen watchmen to me like for limited series. So it's an a different categories, but I would even say it's better than all dramas on I. Think. So it's it's crowning achievement of TV this. So for sharp for me, I'm I'm thinking of like I want a show that looks great. Visually also will make me think. So I I wanted to go directly off of Damon Lindelof because I feel like he's kind of peak of his powers right now. So guys are wondering like other stuff he's done and I I can't think about the leftovers it's a similarly. It's a great show. It's alternative universe incredibly well, made really thoughtful but also like very simplistic in terms of you applying it to your that feels like watchmen felt current but also set in a different time. And leftovers current but also sat in a different times. So I love that the weirdness of the masks in watchmen which was so precious. So yeah, it's it's. It's phenomenal the other one I was thinking of when I want to. Recommend a show in in that Washington vein I'll say Black Mirror it's close enough. It's not really narrative based. Yeah. It's vignettes and different standalone stories, but it's kind of an alternate. Reality it looks close enough to realize that you're not sure that it's not. Yeah. But it's also telling us some darkened weird stuff about yourself. And the good thing about Black Mirror is to watch it. You're not watching it in each episode is its own Y'all episode so That's will put like some of our own favorite episodes that we both have really loved that we can include in the note. So you don't have to wonder because listen that first episode it's Just you just need to skip it. Hear me if you don't hear anything else if you don't hear Jamie doing the weird change of momentum at the beginning of the show if you forgot that already that's okay. Forget it. Here me this do not watch the first episode. Mom Don't do it dad don't do it much mom don't do it nobody do. It. Would be a mistake. Okay. It's a for me. If you love watchmen where you're like, that seems like it's good. Let me tell you to other shows that are good. So on that flakes, you can watch Jessica Jones I chose this because you got strong female lead just like you have in watchman, you have a superhero component which you also have and Jessica Jones it's dark. It's Gritty the villain in Jessica Jones is played by David tennant in that first season and he is per faction it keeps you on your toes. It's also very you're very to the visuals also recommending legion. Hulu. That's weird. Right because I think when you watch watchman, you're like I'm confused. Limits where you're like I, need to watch this again. Being, existing Ip it makes you think should I know that and I can confirm I. Didn't know. And watchmen I would sometimes read like recaps after I. Would Watch an episode and that would help me catch things maybe that I didn't grab the first time with Legion stars Dan Stevens? Famous playing. Matthew on. Downton Abbey He. It's a done by Noah. All Superhero Jason because this is the story of professor x his incredibly powerful, mentally ill mutant sign and so it's it also stars Jean Smart who is also in watchmen man she's in a Lotta. Golf that she has very good taste, and so it's weird enough that you're like It's not that classic Superhero which is what I also like about watchmen if we had done if we'd time traveled and done a designing women saying draft Jean Smart would not be my. Number. One pick would be any pots it would be we'll for private. Not. It be any pods, Anthony Delta Burke Julia sugarbakers. dixie Carter lab next to last over Jean Smart. Yeah. My point here is everyone would have been before Jean Smart Jean Smart was second. I'm going to be in Sweet Home Alabama and you're not going to know what to do with the low key cares. Okay.

DNA & EOs with Dr. Lindsey Elmore

"All Right folks, I'm here with Dr Lindsay Elmore. One of my favorite human beings on this planet, she's a speaker author, brand strategist podcast host am world renown wellness expert, she translates. Science into understandable stories and travels the world educating audiences about natural wellness Lindsey. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for back. Absolutely thanks for having me back. It's an honour. Well, you're one of my favorite guests becoming a recurring us which I love so I'm glad that you're here today and I'm super excited to talk about this particular topic of DNA and what our DNA can tell us about essential oils, and we've actually had a number of guests on the show before to to cover this topic. But I feel like you're gonNA just sort. Sort of put the icing on top of everything and make it click in people's minds because that's what you're best at just breaking down complicated things and making them simple. So this is part of your thirty podcasts in thirty days. Tell us a little bit more about that. Well I recently started a podcast called the Lindsay elmore show, and I, some of my guests have been have been educating me on how you can. Can Get your podcast out there. If you go on a podcast tour and a few months ago, I was at an event called pod Max and one of the speakers was a writer for four herbs and she had written an article about how she accomplished doing thirty podcasts in thirty days, and I just thought, wow, that sounds really hard and I decided why not give it a try and book as many as you. You can get the word out there and really share all the different facets you know. I. Love Essential Oil. So I'm excited to be here to talk to your audience, but we're also looking at podcast that encompass all of the entrepreneurship that I do the Vegan cooking yoga. Even my new little cat. We've applied to some to some broadcast to talk about you know my first couple of weeks having a kitten and so. A great way I, don't know. So it's a great way to meet New People and to share topics that I care about right. Well, I, love how the podcast world is. So multifaceted in that way, like we are human beings, we are complex creatures and we are both passionate, right. So have been able to find. There's a podcast there for everything. So whatever little passion or hobby or? Or thing that's like in your heart that you want express share with the world. There's a show out there to do just that for people who are hungry for that information, which is one of the reasons I just love podcast. Absolutely. I. Completely agree there. We have come across some crazy crazy podcast and we even applied to one and there was only about the health benefits of olives. Like was like, how do you have a podcast only about that? But there is legitimate podcast for anyone and everyone. That's hilarious. I'M GONNA have to add that into my book that I'm writing about podcast. Dina's is just an example how niche you can make these things. So. Let's dive into the Science DNA. Tell us what gives us like the kindergarten version of what is DNA, and what can you tell us about our bodies. So DNA is basically A. For your body, every single person has DNA and there are building blocks of DNA called base pairs, and we each have about three point two, billion base pairs of DNA, and what we have is these base pairs make called genes. So there's a sequence of the base pairs that make gene the gene in codes, a part of your body bit either contributes to the structure of your body. So you can have a gene that helps to encode for tissues or four bones or for tea. Or you can have genes that encode for the function of your body, and so this could be perhaps an enzyme or it could be a spleen soul that is destined to help clean your blood cells. So DNA it's a blueprint, it's built of base pairs that make up jeans, and then genes encode the structure and function of our bodies. Okay. So with that basis of information there how why, and what, why do? Do essential oils differ in their benefit based on different DNA types like I used to think that all essential oils just kinda did the same thing to everyone and then I started using essential oils in seen how center oils did different things in different people's bodies and I'm like Oh. Why is that his dad because of our DNA? Well, it could be because of your DNA. So within your, DNA, we have. Have things, called snips and the snips Stanford single nuclear tied Holly. MORPHISM 's this is a really fancy term that basically means mutations. We are all mutants because we don't all have matching. DNA. That's what makes us human? That's what makes us beautiful in diverse. So mutation has a bad connotation to it, but really, and truly all mutation is is where they're within those base pairs that are building your DNA there. there. Is a change with one of those base pairs and that is called a single nucleotides polymorphism. So when we look at the population as a whole, we can identify what is the most common nuclear tied sequence within our DNA. This tells us at every single point within the DNA, what is considered the normal trait? Some people have different nucleotides. That's where those snips comment those single nucleotide polymorphisms. So these abnormals. Tides lead to our genetic mutations. Some of them are benign. So some of them don't make any difference. You know you and I could have two different SNIPS and our bodies still functions

My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me

"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better.

L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club

"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau. Natalie, wood reading a role for the same film at the age of sixteen. When able with a direct. Ray Hotel. She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

"Welcome to pop your source for nightmare weddings and Yoga. Ball sits. Big Round of applause I like get. Nina's often that you guys but hunters here has always and so is actress producer and. Legend. Viviana. A. Welcome. Back. Welcome where we are so excited to have you hundred GonNa Flirt with you. The entire show get prepared for them. Time Vivica just walked taping. That works for me baby just a little. Just a little took us. Describe my style of flirting. So this is. My God I'll. Little tickle we can get started now. All Right Ben Affleck was just banned from arm his upcoming James Bond Premiere at least that's what the tabloids are claiming. It's probably total but supposedly bond producers are afraid the couples pedia will overshadow the movie and Daniel Craig's okay. They have like a you've obviously you're a lot more famous than both hundred and I combined you too many movie premieres yet we like it. It's a big win for us tonight on nightly pop. If you going to an event and for movie you were in and producers said, listen you're man can't come how do you handle that challenge? Cry. Let's start right there. We've never look here. Work showed up gave as our how I not shining I. If this is true is totally unfair. Why does the girl not have to shot because she's in a grid we? Away from. She has died. He has done for them hunter. What do you think about if you could not bring me to a movie premiere as a standing date for you because your girl canceled? Would you be asset? That's okay with me and I think if they really don't want Ben Affleck showing up, put it in a city that doesn't have Dunkin donuts. I guarantee you. Not Going. There for some reason I mean honestly I have to say I don't know why I'm leaning towards this being true but I sort of believe it. I kind of feel like this sort of makes sense I mean I don't know if Ben Affleck is going to overshadow Daniel Craig's something about them always walking those. Dogs which I Got? Every day. Why it's always just so staged feeling for some reason I I do believe. I kind of believe that they're like listen just leave your boyfriend at home or moving on. While Shirley's there and knows what she wants when it comes to a relationship and the first rule is she's not going to live with anybody you guys. She recently told the mirror that she's not sure that she could live with somebody again and that he may have to buy the house next to her. She's just too old for this. Like it okay. I just want a new. And nobody's coming up here running thing but me so I'm all with their Charlie's let them know when it's happening to come over and do the deed. With after other than that stale ass next door right you. My God. First of all, my type of woman this is Great Vivica. I'm happy to buy any house near Your House I'm going GonNa have to save up a little bit but I can do it and then seconds I see where they're coming from but it also feels like Charlie's is coming from a place of she hasn't had healthy relationships lately maybe or she hasn't found that person you do want to live with I. Think we all kind of think that after we go to break, we're like no more of the opposite sex ever again taking that much of my personal mind and then raging you find someone. And you can grow with and maybe they start outside the house maybe eventually you're like, Hey, let's have toothbrushes in the same room. Let's try that out for a little while. Yeah, I feel like with Charlene I think that also when you are single for such a long time, you kind of get set in your ways and just having the idea of someone come in and just rearranging things becomes really daunting and just quite frankly really annoying and to be honest Shirley's does not need to settle. She doesn't need to do anything that is inconvenient for her at all. So like I. Totally under understand her mindset of like I don't. Yeah. Come over when you need to do the deed otherwise I don't need to be moving my cashmere sweaters for you to put your jeans and the next door take your time says the girl that got engaged in seven months. I was like, all right give it to me okay Brian. Austin. Green is getting defensive about dating multiple women after his split for Meghan Box Ryan was on the Hollywood raw podcast you listened to that a lot right with DAX holt an atom. Glenn where he said he isn't playing anybody but the whole point of dating is to talk to several people at once. What people normally do when they get out of something is they date they they talked to multiple people at once I'm not playing anybody like this is. My life is just is much more under a microscope. Let me ask you. So should he have to tell the woman? He's dating that he's seeing other people I'm GONNA ask Hunter Africa's I can't wait to hear the assay. I appreciate honesty to be very honest with you in their plans. Call dating onto someone says it's meeting. You is called dating I. Think the biggest problem is when it's rubbed in other people's faces

Amy and Tavis Guild How to make large portrait photography sales from auctions

"I mean Tabas Welcome. Thanks for having us. Hello. Look there I the name of your town Roy Euchema. It's Yakima. So we have a lot of Indian native American names here. So we China and. Yakima we know. We know it's okay. We'll look talking about the the living in the you work from. Can you give us an idea of the population and the clients that you'll servicing? Yes. So calculation here is I guess our county is around two hundred thousand or so. But really like our city is around one, hundred thousand. So we're a farm town. So we produced seventy percent of the world tops, and so if you drink a beer, the odds that we grew here in Yakima are incredibly high and we also produce a large or should have the apples, peaches, cherries hairs were the fruit Bolsa. We're surrounded by farms and you come out here is that way you'll clients coming from from that family and community? Yeah. A lot of the farm owners, and of course, you know that's going to spur on other business in the area and so yeah, like our clientele. So our suit is a good pair of jeans. In the Collared Button. Up, shirts. If. You get fancy you can tuck your shirt in. If you WANNA, get really fancy you can just add like a blue blazer and anything beyond that is the super formal event that only happens once a year. And as obviously you guys both working the business do you have totally separate roles or overlap quite a bit? Yeah I would say we have pretty separate roles. Well, it all started when we started photographing weddings together and actually be very had kids. We've been married for twelve years before we had kids we did everything together. We sat side by side on our computers and photograph together did it all together but now with the kids, it's like I'm on duty in the office and I do a lot of the correspondence, the photo editing, the marketing things like that tavist as most of the photographing and all of the in person sales after and going to the clients home and inside the wall art so. Nowadays we actually do way more by ourselves the we do together but. is to be altogether your are you both actually shooting still? and. Then you both go out to weddings together would go to the same family portal's Tavistock one and I mean, you take another It just depends like this past Saturday, we had two separate events. So I went to one and tavist went to another with a an associate char and then family sessions he'll just go himself or take Khloe, our associate, and then every once in a while I'll get a babysitter and we'll both do the same wedding. It's really the kids that have changed the way the business runs yet, which is normal for every couple. Yeah, it's season and once they're grown and and shifting into the gears, they're going to be doing in life. I'm sure will spring back and. More together. Show and did I get that raw in the charter that it started with the wedding photography business and then you move into portraiture It did and you know the interesting thing is this we actually started as A. Company, and so it was back. When if you said, you did HD video it was like a marketing thing like it was like Oh you do hd like it was kind of like you offer the digital. Gets US important as that, and so we started with that and then quickly found every client wanted photography and we're like, okay, it's the same. We're doing all the manual settings on the video. Let's get into the tire free still world up, and so we quickly went full till photography and then soon thereafter drop the video side of things just because the workflow was difficult for our team size and we're like, Hey, let's just focus more on the photography inside and kind of fell into our laps that we even did. Weddings in the first place because we are both in college at the time and I was studying to be a teacher and I thought well in the summer like photographs a few weddings and then Soviet teacher year round. But by the end of our college career, we were doing late twenty five to fifty weddings a year twenty five was our first year and then fifty or next like, okay. Let's switch gears. Let's just do this full-time. So it was never like our lifelong plan to be wedding photographers it just kinda happened. But it's been a lot of fun. So then why the transition into portraiture. Well you know it's so interesting because for those of you that are wedding photographers out there, you'll know exactly what I'm about to say is is when you're at these events, it's kind of a commercial for yourself as an artist as a porsche artist because you're photographing families in in after that couple that you photograph, they then begin to start a family. So the longer you're in the industry. It really has a natural velopment to all of these people that you're just kind of their household photographer. You're a part of the family and your role is the artist right and we just start at the wedding side, and then as they begin to have kids and stuff like that, we do the newborn and then the family stuff, and then of course, you begin to be known for that also. Of course photographs, people, you didn't do their wedding, but ultimately, we've always kind of done family photography alongside weddings. More focused on weddings. But just recently, we decided to create a brand around that in a really helps with clear marketing messaging and all that stuff and being able to run promotions and not have it be conflicting with our you know bride and grooms, and you know the marketing pumping out for the wedding size thing. So that's why we split the brains. We didn't necessarily just start doing that we just made it super clear that we do that.

House Antitrust Subcommittee Takes Testimony From Big Tech CEOs

"As low as four dollars. Ninety nine cents a month stay tuned after the show to learn about their special offer just for talking tech listeners. So when you're asked to meet with elected officials via teleconference in Washington. DC along with your key competitors and you don't get too many questions. It's a given that you had a really really good week. And when you followed up the next day with a stunning earnings release that had one analysts say that his jaw dropped when he read the numbers while there's no question that apple CEO Tim, Cook clearly had the best week in Tech. His compatriots among the big tech CEOS like facebook's mark. Zuckerberg Google's Sundar Pichai, and Amazon's Jeff Bezos did not fare as well in DC. Now, in case you missed it. Let's breakdown for you what happened this week and begin by setting the scene facebook Google apple and Amazon CEOS recall to Capitol Hill for the first time in unison to defend themselves. Against antitrust charges and they followed it up the next day with earnings reports all on the same day or a mind boggling two hundred billion dollars combined worth of revenues in just one quarter. That's a little less than half of what America's largest company Walmart brought in for all of two thousand nineteen for the record that was five, hundred, twenty, four, billion. Now during a pandemic, when many people are forced to work or learn from home consumers responded by buying lots of new computers, ipads, and iphones from apple and a whole lot of everything from Amazon at a time when many retail stores were closed in this testimony to Congress bezos described it as like Christmas in March for the company which struggle to keep up with demand meanwhile. Google. Reported a two percent drop in revenues incidents. Advertising business was impacted too fragile economy. While facebook, which is also primarily in advertising business reported higher revenues but. With a lower increase than usual, which brings us back to cook. When you're asked to appear before Congress and defend your company, you're a loser when you walk into that environment says Jean Monster in investor analyst with Luke ventures a good day he adds is escaping from major blows like Tim Cook did cook was asked about how apple treats APP developers in place favorites at its APP store where the company clearly controls what consumers can see with ironclad enforcement. Apple gets to decide who can participate and can band people at will as it did recently with the alternative email service hey, which was initially rejected by apple cooks defense. It's all in keeping up with the quality of the store in that putting APPs in front of iphone users that invade their privacy and the like. But in the realm of antitrust government decreed that apple ditch the APP store, it's a tiny portion of its business worth less than five. And wouldn't impact apple says monster. What could happen to the other companies if they had to divest will you can see facebook ditching instagram and WHATSAPP apple ditching aws, which is its web services it was basically the backbone of many companies. It provides Internet services for many companies like Netflix men for Google maybe say goodbye YouTube. Google calendar. Google maps who knows meanwhile the chairman of the antitrust subcommittee said

The First Gene-Altered Squid Has Thrilled Biologists

"Some of the weirdest creatures on the planet are CEPHALOPODS, animals like squids and octopuses. Now, in the Journal current biology scientists say they've managed to tinker with the jeans of pod in the lab NPR's Nell. Greenfieldboyce, reports on why a gene-altered squid is such a big deal. Read Grassi's official job title is manager of Cephalopod Operations when I recently visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts, he showed me around a room full of burgling tanks. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight pajamas squids. These ones are native to. Australia. We've got our. Church, which is the pygmies zero octopus, their native to Nicaragua very small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than a table grape. The work here involves everything from the very latest high tech gene editing tools to a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor the rocks are used to make habitats in the tanks and two way down the lids. So octopus are notorious for being able to escape out of their enclosures. These critters have sophisticated brains that look nothing like our own. They can solve puzzles, change their skin color in a flash and travel using jet propulsion Josh. Rosenthal is a researcher at the Marine Biological Laboratory. He says, these animals evolved completely independently from us, their relatives or. Things like clams in this provides an opportunity to compare them with us and see what elements are in common and what elements or you need. The problem is there's been no way to modify their genes and being able to do that is really important. Most lab biologists study just a few species like mice and fruit flies because the gene editing technologies for them have been all worked out. This makes it easy to study genes role in behavior, disease and treatments, but none of that was available for cephalopods. So Rosenthal and his colleagues have been building those tools I using a squid that lives in the waters around woods hole a researcher named Karen Crawford had figured out how to fertilize. Its eggs in the lab. So the team did that and then injected gene altering materials it wasn't easy. The fertilized egg is surrounded by a tough almost rubbery coating for months we have needles break. We couldn't figure out how they get it, but they finally did it and turned off a pigmentation gene that normally makes small dark spots on the squids skin. Those spots are missing on the altered baby squid pigment genes are easy because you can see them. Right. You can see if it's working as things develop Kerry Alberton is a member of the research team she says for her this is a game changer. This is something that honestly if you ask me five years ago if we'd. Be Able to do I would have just giggled and said I dream of it but you know I didn't think it would be possible and yet here we are other Squid Biologists or equally thrilled Sarah McNulty's with the University of Connecticut. She says, it's incredibly impressive that they've gotten this to work. This was like a huge advancement for staff upon researchers all over the wrong. We should all be pop bottles of Champagne. This is amazing. She says this particular squid can't live long term a lab it just gets too big but she says it's proof of what's possible and the researchers are already working with smaller creatures. They haven't those tanks to alter genes and them to Nell Greenfieldboyce NPR news.

Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers

"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive. Advertising content when I say Utopia what comes to mind? Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the Pathak social body. Everybody in that place. Everybody happy now. While the peacock original series brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. The concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous. Huxley's Utopia and not finding it. Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely. whereas in a utopia, everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen, forty-three, the psychologist Abraham Maslov developed a theory of Yoga. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia. Citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen?

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you.

So being algorithms is sounds fairly dry, but you gotta think about it that once you're on the field, and you see a robot move. It's really moving because you've created that algorithm. You've implemented that software. You've tested and debugged at a new worked with other people. To make that happen, and it's almost like you're seeing an algorithm that you've developed or an idea that you've had come to live. These robots come in all sizes and shapes, and can be used in space, exploration or terrestrial applications.

The City of Carthage

"Welcome back to another episode. Five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're going to a place to a very famous city in the ancient world. The city of Carthage Carthage was first settled by the Phoenicians. This of course was a crucial city right as were on the Mediterranean Sea. Carthage came to be known as the master of the Mediterranean. Sea Trade after the Phoenicians was part of the PUNIC. PUNIC empire, and then under Caesar Augustus who reigned from fourteen BC to twenty seven ad. Of course, this is the Caesar Augustus of the Gospel Narratives in the birth of Christ under Caesar Augustus Rome to control of Carthage and it became a great Roman city. It was second only to Rome and the Roman Empire Rivaling Alexandria from time to time for that position, but most give it to Carthage. At any given time in these centuries, the population of Carthage would be two hundred fifty thousand people that had all the telltale signs of a Roman city. There were theaters in the republic buildings. There were the extensive baths. There were aqueducts for. Water across the city, and even into the fields for farming, there was an extensive Roman road system. Soldiers were kept. There was a very busy port city and a very prosperous city. It also has quite a role in church history. It was the home of Talionis. Of course. Is that great church father from one sixty to two twenty as the one who gave us the word Trinity, and brought together all that biblical teaching of who got is in his Trinitaria and being, and so we have the word trinity coined at Carthage and two Oh. Three Carthage was the site of the martyrdom of perpetual and Felisa toss those very brave young women, and the wonderful story of their martyrdom in their courage in their stand for Christ. Well, it was at Carthage. and. The to fifty CIPRIAN was bishop of Carthage. This was on the heels of the decian persecution very intense persecution by the Roman emperor Shas. And after the persecution, and there was some relenting of it, folks were allowed back into the church created quite a controversy was known as the Donna test controversy that raged throughout the church from the fourth to sixth centuries and a key player in that controversy was CIPRIAN Bishop of Carthage. In three ninety seven. It was the site of the Third Council of Carthage. And the topic of discussion was the New Testament Canon and coming out of that council was an affirmation of the twenty seven books of the New Testament, so it played a role in the Canon controversies in development of the Early Church and in four sixteen, the Palais jeans were condemned at Carthage, so it played a role in the development of the doctrine of original sin. So what a fascinating city with rich history both in terms of the ancient world end in church history well as Rome was sacked by the barbarians in four ten carthage was sacked by the vandals and four, Twenty Nine Carthage became the capital of the vandal empire which spanned across that great north. Coast, and of course that North African coast had the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the vast Sahara desert to the south. Is Long came on the scene, the six hundreds, and began to threaten from the East and Right at the end of the six hundred at the battle of Carthage Carthage fell to Islam. It was dominated by Islamic control. There was a brief time during the Crusades when Carthage was retaken, but only for a short time. It remained Muslim throughout the era of the reformation and right onto the present day. Carthage in the present day is a suburb of Tunis. Capital city of the North African nation of Tunisia. Tunisia's the first government North Africa to give protection for religious freedom. But the nation itself is still dominated by Islam and while there is a church. They're going way back to those early centuries. It is still a church that suffers persecution in our present day.

Since the last time you and I talked I Lucky Jeans G Star Rob Off Though Brooks Brothers chapter eleven. This was not a surprise. They have been struggling for a little while now, but I wanted to delve into this company just a little bit because it's an American brand. We have very few brands that are made in the USA. Have such a big heritage. They are two hundred and two years old for our country. That's pretty big deal. Nothing lasts for two hundred two years. Right that's almost as old as the Dang country. They filed for chapter eleven with plans to permanently close fifty one stores. There are a number of companies that are interested in possibly buying the company including Simon Property Group, Simon Property Group is interested. They are the company that owns all those malls. And the crazy thing about this is they just sued brooks brothers a few weeks ago and then dropped the suit for not paying the rent for not paying their rent. They took him to court for almost nine million dollars in unpaid rent, and then they dropped it and I'm guessing. They dropped it because they realized that this was about. Come around the corner, right? They have been slowly closing stores over the past two years and two thousand eighteen. They had nearly seven hundred stores globally now they have five hundred.

She went off birth control and told her doctor that she was thinking about getting pregnant again. Meanwhile Jean. Claude lived in dread of the moment when his money would run out again. Jean Claude withdrew a few hundred francs from the ATM. He felt his whole body tense as a machine. Spit out a receipt. He crumpled the paper without looking at the balance. Whatever the number was, he couldn't face it. He knew without even seeing it that he was in trouble. Jean Claude hunched his shoulders and hurry down the sidewalk. His stomach twisted in knots. He was used to the anxiety now. He lived with it for years. Even so the shrinking numbers in his bank account felt like a countdown to his Judgment Day. When it hits zero, it was time for a reckoning. He had no explanations and no plausible excuses. If Lawrence found out, she would know beyond a doubt that he was a fraud. Luckily for Jean Claude Florence wasn't in the habit of chunking up on their finances, but he knew he wouldn't be able to hide it if their bank accounts were overdrawn. Yet. Even then he couldn't stop himself from spending or lying. He was out of control. Most narcissists are deeply afraid of failure of being exposed as imperfect. Psychologist Bins Roskin. Discuss this in a nineteen eighty five article where he wrote. Perfectionism in the narcissists personality is less related to morals and ideals. Rather it is an attempt by the individual to live up to a grandiose self image in order to avoid humiliation and. And the loss of admiration. When the eventual collapse of the self image comes, it can be destructive. Doctor Saragan added. The inevitable failure to live up to the perfectionist standards results in profound shame and narcissistic rage. Jean Claude remind lived in constant fear that his lies would catch up with him and the shame that would follow. He knew that he needed to find a way out, but couldn't figure out how to come clean without destroying his reputation. For nearly two decades Jean Claude had kept the depths of his deception secret from everyone in his life.

Since the handbag was found in Griffith Park. It was a natural place to begin the search.

This the first of many instances where the Los Angeles police department minimized or ignored the facts of Jean, spangler disappearance. It's hard to say why they intentionally released misinformation. Maybe they didn't want to cause a panic over a possible murder or kidnapping. But maybe the police weren't that interested in finding gene at all as a dancer with a divorce in her past and multiple boyfriends in the present gene was anything but a prim and proper lady. It's very likely department officials didn't think that she was worth the resources to mount a proper investigation. Unsurprisingly the Griffith Park search didn't turn up anything useful. With.

Sophie and Jeans Mother were convinced he'd gone too far. So the police question banner as second time a few days after the disappearance. But he stuck to his story, he hadn't seen gene. The night she'd gone missing. He'd been with his new wife Lynn Lasky. She backed up his alibi. When investigators asked about the cuts, Benner said that he dropped a case of glasses at work. They'd shattered inches away from his face, cutting him. Since Dexter banners seemed like a dead end. The police saw other suspects. They turned their attention to another abusive former lover Lieutenant Scotty. Maybe he'd made good on his threat to kill gene if she ever left him. Scotty may have been the Dr Scott and Jean's note that there's no record of him ever being a physician. In addition he'd been out of genes lie for almost five years. There was no. That he'd had any contact with her recently, so after the police batted the theory around, they never bothered to question him. Once, again, a lead became a dead end when investigators dropped the ball. The police did however flip through jeans diary. They hope to find references to a secret boyfriend or some other possible suspect, but the Journal offered more questions than answers. The pages were littered with a bounty of names, men, women, ordinary, blue collar, workers and world famous celebrities. Often individuals were listed without context, so the police couldn't distinguish which were professional contacts in which were jeans lovers. There was no way to sort through the list once more. The officials dropped potential leads rather than investigating further, but the media was more than willing to take over the investigation for them. The unexplained disappearance of a young beautiful aspiring actress was catnip to journalists. Papers reported on every development in the case drumming up public attention. And while some of the more salacious elements might have scared the police off the trail. They made for flashy headlines that generated even more coverage like when gene's friends reveal that at the time she vanished. She was three months pregnant. Gene wasn't married, and in nineteen forty nine, the scandal of giving birth out of wedlock might have been enough to torpedo her. Hollywood dreams. It's possible that on the night of October seven gene went out to get an abortion. At the time abortion was illegal, so gene secrecy was understandable, and it fit with the vague note in her handbag. Dr Scott was a medical professional who performed the operation off the books. Kirk could have been the unborn child's father. With this new lead, the Los Angeles police. Department launched a more thorough search for Kirk and Dr Scott, they found dozens of physicians who might go by Dr Scott men whose first or last name was Scott. Variation on it, but every doctor said the same thing. They'd never treated gene. Of course, it was unlikely that any doctor would admit to performing illegal abortion especially on a missing woman. So the authorities sought out tips, where did women go for abortions? They finally identified amid school dropout who fit the bill. He went by Scotty or DOC. Scotty much like Jean. Spangler had disappeared, and as was now becoming a trend. The police just stopped looking for him. Maybe because a promiscuous divorce say dancer and an Illegal Abortion, provider Warren considered high priority. Or maybe because the company had covered up their trail too well, because the person who silenced them was wealthy and powerful. After. All gene had dated several wealthy and influential men. If a celebrity, politician or mobster wanted an illegitimate child out of the way he could make the pregnant Jean Vanish without a trace. The L., A. P. D. tried to narrow in on our Kirk and finally they hit it. After gene had been missing for some time. Her sister in law and mother admitted gene had dated a mysterious man named Kirk. The same name from the note in her purse. They'd never met him because he was highly secretive. This was especially strange since gene like to publicly show off her other lovers. It's unclear why Sophie lied about this before. Perhaps because she was solely focused on Dexter, Benner and firmly believe he was guilty. Regardless, a lead was a lead police scoured jeans Rolodex, searching for any man named Kirk with the motive and the means to cover up a murder. To their astonishment, they found an actor who fit the bill perfectly silver screen Megastar Kirk Douglas..

You can find all episodes have gone, and all other are cast originals for free on spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts to stream gone for free on spotify just open the APP and type gone in the search bar today, looking into the disappearance of Jean Spangler, a nightclub dancer and aspiring Hollywood actress, who vanished mysteriously in October, Nineteen forty-nine. Later investigations suggest she may have fallen victim to a jealous ex, a mafia contact or a legendary movie star. Jean Elizabeth Spangler disappeared on October seventh, nineteen, forty, nine, supposedly after leaving and overnight film shoot. An extensive search was largely unsuccessful, uncovering her handbag and a mysterious note inside. Thanks to a botched police investigation and these baffling clues. There are three prominent theories. The first is the gene was murdered, and her body disposed of she could have been killed by a former lover, or maybe even her ex husband, who is still bitter over a lost custody, battle or gene might have died during a secretive procedure. We can only speculate, but perhaps it was so shameful or taboo. The doctor may have hidden her body to get rid of the evidence. and. Finally gene may not have died at all. She could have fled. Los Angeles to escape dangerous enemies like a wrong mafioso. Gene's family moved to Los Angeles in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Just as she was about to start high school gene soon fell in love with L. as modern sprawl and the promise of stardom. When she graduated from Franklin High School in one, thousand, nine, forty one. She set her sights on making it in Hollywood. Eighteen year old Jean was by all accounts, a charming and driven young woman. She worked several low paying jobs while she dreamed of seeing her name in lights, luckily for gene, her talent and her good looks turned heads. She soon began modeling for local department store, but gene wasn't content as a model. She wanted to be a star. She used Oliver Charm to make connections, but our big break wasn't which he'd expected. She was hired as a nightclub dancer at the famous earl. Carroll Theatre in Hollywood. Though the club was hardly a movie set gene appreciated the opportunity. Earl, Carroll was a prominent player on the sunset. Strip and his club drew in lots of well known and wealthy people. The GIG would certainly allow her to network gene relished the chance to rub shoulders with so many movers and shakers. Even if the club had sleazy reputation, and she used her charm to get to know the regulars intimately as a career started to flourish, so did her love life. She dated Dexter Benner. Who often frequented the club? He was a plastics manufacturer into recent USC graduate. Since he wasn't involved in show business. He didn't seem like an obvious match for the career focused gene, but the to hit it off. She was clearly attracted to his charismatic personality, but it's possible that she was also drawn to his wealth. The pair hastily married in one, thousand, nine, forty, two, only a few months after they'd met, and everything seemed normal at least for a little while. By, the end of the first year, they were at each other's throats. It was clear that Benner didn't relish the nightlife like his wife did. He hoped that once they married. Jean would settle down into a more traditional domestic life, but she wasn't ready to give up her dreams night after night Jean spangler out. At the club, she networked and even flirted with potential contacts. When? She came home sometimes well after midnight Benner responded with fury and violence after six months of abuse gene filed for divorce on the charge of cruelty. We don't know why, but shortly after submitting the paperwork gene dropped the case. The two stayed married, even though the relationship remained volatile, they even had a daughter Christine two years later. In. Those two years Jean hadn't gotten her big, Hollywood. Break trapped in a loveless marriage and caring for a new baby. She probably felt hopeless, but in nineteen forty four. She got some respite when Benner was drafted into the army. He traveled to the South Seas to fight in World War Two. It was common at the time for a mother, raising daughter alone to forgo her social life and take care of her child full-time, but gene refused to comply with society's expectations. In fact, she picked up even more shifts at the club and her social life became scandalous. With dinner out of Sidon out of mind, gene carried on multiple affairs some quietly and others openly. One of her boyfriends was in the armed forces. A man only known as Lieutenant Scotty. Scottie wasn't a great match for gene. To say the least he spent all of her money, an erect her car, and like Benner Scotty had a cruel streak. Gene regularly showed up to work with bruises and even told her friends that Scotty was abusive. But every time she tried to break up with him. Scotty got more violent for most of their relationship gene stayed with him because she thought she had no choice Jean, said that on one occasion. Scotty threatened to murder her. She figured he was bluffing, but it finally gave her the courage to leave him for good. After.

"Monument Valley is an example of how the desert can be both things at once. You've probably seen it plenty of times. Typically in movies set in the wild West van hostile comanche came through last week ago. Passed the white girl with him and gets you thinking. I don't know that's of course. John Wayne from the searchers a classic Western directed by John Ford. John Wayne plays a former confederate soldier crossing the desert in search of his abducted niece.

Got A lot of us out of those towers though. Few films were actually set in Monument Valley. But it didn't matter. Those rock towers soon became a symbol for the West or freedom or lawlessness. That's one of the strange things about those iconic. Us Western landscapes everybody's familiar with them and recognizes them but they very rarely sort of represent real places they always stand in for something else and so yes. In particularly in American culture the presence of the desert a long history as state set for the rehearsal and the kind of playing out of kind of fantasies one kind to another fantasies masculinity fancies of nationhood to John Back that legacy of the desert as a pioneer fantasy land dovetailed into one of the darker parts of twentieth century American history especially after December seventh nineteen.

What kind of moved into internment camps in places where conditions are hard where that possessions behind live somewhere else very often. The kind of narrative is used to justify this is a narrative of pioneering and Japanese and Japanese. Americans are kind of re figured as pioneers..

John Beck is a professor of literature at the University of Westminster in London. He's the author of the Book Dirty Wars Landscape Power and waste in western American literature so as a population was moving west that was kind of troublesome spice in the way of California and so initially it was kind of seen as a sort of undesirable spaces dangerous and threatening.

Imminent and present within the human experience in the Earth and nature the cosmos at the same time Theology assumes as central tenant that God is ultimately transcended is beyond the universe. So there's always that tension between God's presence within and transcendence and insofar as the often spoke of transcendence the image of the desert is a kind of ideal metaphor of transcendence insofar as its again. This idea that no image or any form of representation can adequately name or capture the divine reality the desert the as as an image of emptiness is also an image debt all our concepts about God or ultimately empty.

"So i think that there is a sense in which empty desolate spaces in a sense are often projected onto representations of the divine so i was actually reading this medieval german female theologian mechtild of magdeburg and she has this poem that i think i'd want to read you shall love nothingness you shall flee existence you shall stand alone you shall drink the water of suffering and light the fire of with the virtue then you will live in the true desert so for for her decide of like loving nothingness is clearly related to this kind of ascetical imagination renunciation of wealth and power so her image of standing alone before god and the idea of god is like a divine desert. She's actually not the first to use that that metaphor several theologians before her called God literally the Divine Desert to suggest that all of art images and concepts and metaphors are inadequate. All our language falls short. We can only say what God is not. We cannot see what God is that all our our concepts are empty. These writers on the desert were drawing on religious traditions dating back centuries when Christianity took hold in Rome and Greece and Egypt monks and philosophers began seeking out the desert to reconnect with the divine their now known as the desert fathers. Anthony of Egypt is one of the most famous figures. I think what's interesting? In those cases with the early desert fathers is that they're clearly if you look at Christian history the growing strength and wealth of the church ended up producing you know a culture and civilization that was rich in land rich in buildings and money and so you have a numerous cases throughout Christian his various profits emerging to kind of return Christianity. Back to the biblical vision back to the vision that Jesus had and the symbol of the desert became in those cases a renunciation of the wealth and power in strength of the Christian Church. It was trying to recover the spirit of of humility so the desert in that sense. The desert was a symbol of sexism of fasting. Place of self denial who sits in solitude and is quiet scape from three wars hearing speaking seeing yet against one thing shall he continually battle? That is his own heart. The idea of going to the desert was kind of like recovering. This biblical spirit. That was present in the simple and humble life of Jesus of Nazareth. The desert fathers weren't just escaping city life by leaving for the desert in a sense they were returning to the place where their faith was born. Yeah I mean Judaism. Christianity Islam are all religions of the desert the image representation of God. Those traditions are clearly influenced by the experience of desert places. The most striking fundamental narrative throughout the biblical tradition is of course exodus and Exodus. The symbol of desert is clearly related to the experience of exile. I'm reminded of like the famous complaint of Israelites. Complaining Against Moses after Moses delivered them from bondage in Egypt but their complaint is was it for a want of graves that you brought us out of Egypt only die in the desert there you have kind of some of the negative characteristics of the desert the absence the parched earth the lack of water lack of sustenance and in fact later on in a text like the Jewish Prophet Jeremiah. He speaks of it with that. Similar sensibility is a place of desolation of anguish. He says I looked and this is after the Babylonian exile after the Babylonians had conquered and destroyed Jerusalem. I looked in the fruitful land was desert and all its cities were laid in ruins to Alex. There are many ancient depictions of the desert as a place where God is absent literally godforsaken place but that's paradoxically. Why the desert is where you can find the true face of God. Yeah I think it's true that it seems as if it's a place distant from the divine in some way in so far as a place again not only of suffering and struggle and an anguish in the desert is a sense of feeling of God's absence in the desert. He found him in a desert land in an empty howling wasteland. Yet at the same time. This is where this is the irony of Biblical theology is that this is also at the same place. Where God reveals God's self to the Israelites and in fact accompanies the Israelites. And that's actually. I've always been struck by that image of God. It's one of the most captivating compelling quite beautiful views of God that God in fact goes into exile with Israelites. Accompanies the Israelites on their journey. God hovers over the Israelites in a cloud of darkness covering the Israelites wandering alongside the Israelites..

"There's a tendency in literature defined more than just isolation in the desert. It's also a place for the spiritual and the divine. Hello my name is Alex. Nava I am from Tucson Arizona. I'm currently a professor of religious studies at the University of Arizona. Leg Cellino Suna. Alex also found childhood wonder in the desert so I was born and raised in Tucson and my family goes back generations. My mother grew up on a ranch outside of Tucson Arizona. It's definitely in the middle of the desert and it was a wonderful place to grow up just kind of wandering the desert regions exploring the landscape. The animals that as a child we were fascinated. By and of course alarmed by there's definitely rattlesnakes but it was. It was a wonderful place of escape for a child and exploration adventure wonder gusting to thirty three and our wind chills down to nine above in. Chicago with the humidity but then Alex moved to Chicago where the winds blow cold off. Lake Michigan reason for the call. It's just a little buckle in the jet stream right here. It was pretty startling. The brutal winds and the cold winters the dark winters a gave me new is. I don't think I was attentive and alert to the significance of the desert until I lived in Chicago right there on the Great Lake Michigan. It really did give me. A greater appreciation for desert landscapes gave me an appreciation for the for the heat for the sun for the sky and again I began to think more and more about the symbolic meanings of desert landscapes. Vis-a-vis Ocean forest while at College in Chicago Alex Combined. His childhood love of the desert with his growing interest in religion. I was always fascinated even at a relatively young age by the stars by the Sky I suppose I had a philosophical leaning a curiosity of feeling of a sense of wonder in awe at the universe. But it wasn't until college that I started to formulate it in terms of philosophical and theological learning ideas. Eventually there there was a convergence experiences growing up on. My mother's ranch was that escaped from the city. And I think in that sense. It suggests a place of contemplation meditation. And it's a departure from the everyday departure from the mundane from the habitual rituals of our lives our obligations and pressures and expectations. So it's not surprising that in a lot of cases it draws people who have very kind of harsh understandings of mainstream culture so it really kind of invites bizarre and strange spiritual groups and especially in in in our own age where we do tend to have i think increasingly kind of private and individual understandings of of spirituality and that also lends itself to tremendous variety of conceptions of god or the gods and therefore not surprising that various unorthodox and sometimes cult like groups fleet the city life and flee in their mind flee the mainstream culture and so that's i think that the desert becomes those places of an alternative way of thinking and an alternative way of living in fact if they take it to an extreme and wanted to actually live in those regions divorcing themselves from everything in the city.
