"What's that called the like a vocab list basically in the back of the book and it gives you a list of all the words and terminology and everything for what you're about to read, and you do need to look over that because they are some pretty hefty words I've we've talked about it before but there's online you can hear frank, Herbert read. Like how these? PRONUNCIATIONS worth wherever. Sound like. kind of like Frank Herbert. Herbert. Imagine. These just like he's British no yes I don't think so I don't know he was saying Moore d what the like. An accident out of that more deeb or. It's the Benny. Benny. Desert. Penny Bennett Benner Jesuit Jessica. Baron Har- Coenen. Yeah, it's kind of like that it's just little clips of him saying the words. Well Anyway. I'm looking forward to that. So let's move on to full coverage, D. C., Fan Dome. DC Fan Dome, happened on. Saturday. Fans we talked about last Saturday that it was last week that it was going to happen it happened and boy did they drop some moms? So let's start off with the big ones right off the right off the bat. Let's get a little bit of a trailer for. The Batman. Matt Reeves. CZYZ the Batman which I've now watched. Like four. TIMES IN A row. I did forty two trying to figure out exactly what's going on it's like like okay. So apparently, people have already figured this out really in the trailer, you get to see a new style of ridler which I tried to I. figured it out because there was some rentals written later on so but I didn't know if that character that you saw the beginning with duct tape and stuff it that was the town. Yeah. That's that's the ridler because he like the no more lies guy is that okay well, he's not the guy that says normalize out his face. He's the guy that's taping right. And it's an interesting costume. It's kind of. Steam Punky. Very eared dark. Yeah. It all. Love it Rafic and he's so it's a different type of character you get to see airy Jerry you get to see the penguin in this. I didn't see the penguin he's there where when they go outside of their outside of A. It's like A. Workshop or something, and they're all shooting guns in his car explodes. He's standing there and it's Colin, it's Colin Farrell but you would never be able to tell it was him. He's got so much makeup on really and he's got a big scar on his face after rewatch that then you've got the cat woman that's their granted Zoe Kravitz she's more of a cat burglar than. Woman as a cat burglar, but she's not really she's just dressed in black clothes. It's not like point ears, but it's still a A. Like a ski mask. Could be early cat woman. So you see those things who are the joker looking dude are those ridler? Well. And it might be the penguin's henchmen. Okay. They look like joker henchman they do and they're hoping that that's not the case I. Hope that's not I hope it's not the case either. But then this guy a video that said that he's figured out the first riddle I watched the whole video but it's one of those overly edited videos where he talks about so many random things and jumps around so much that all headline no substance. Yes there wasn't much substance there besides saying that. He's the one that showed the penguin cat woman ridler, and then he kind of hinted at the court avowals again. And saying that the Court of appeals may have an underlying. Oh, that's not a bad idea. I mean they should do though. Yeah. Like heaven underlying story here that is connected throughout the whole movie. How do you feel about them ridler being the main bag? Oh I'm all for it. I've never been a huge ridler fan but me, but this looks pretty neat. Yeah and I think there's more to it than just the ridler. So. James. Gordon is walking through first of all pause on that. Yeah. That dude that James Gordon doesn't look good. To be really nailed it. Right he's going to be perfect for that role. I'm telling you I like that actor. I don't even know his name offhand. He's been in a lot of stuff though. and. That works for me. Yeah. So He's walking to this crime scene and Geoffrey Geoffrey, right? Yes. Westworld and I really I don't. I'm not huge westworld fan but he's great unless world he's walking to the crime scene and is these walking through this hallway go onto the crime scene all of the cops on the side of the hallway are looking behind him and then the camera pans around and Batmans following him through their. What this is saying is that it's basically year too. Yeah I've heard that they're not going to be a year lawn or a a new. The origin story of Batman. This is year two of a young Batman that's already gotten somewhat of relationship with James Gordon and his working with the police department to a certain capacity but isn't yet really accepted by the majority of the police. Department. So I. It's looks really good to me and the whole scene where he's just punch that dude that's brutal Jassem it reminds me of the Arkham. Games it does snake where you can just pummel people. It looks great. Who is that dude and they say who are you and he says I'm vengeance with the face band bandanna on the darkened is. That they're in a press conference and you get a glimpse of a guy. Maybe. Supposed to. Be Batman. I wish you're watching the trailer like I was Oh. You have been. Yeah. Oh, I didn't even maybe it was maybe it's bad man I duNno. Pants looks a little odd as Bruce Wayne I will say that, but he looks awesome in the bat suit he does because. This Chevron hair did they leave the long hair that doesn't? Work it's like that nineties hair parted down the middle I don't like the hair you're right but I think it's a take off of him still being new at Batman still being so..

"Given that we do have like I said this this amazing early dress that was made from household materials. We also have his patterns that he hand cut in designed. We have some deconstructed garments that he hands sewed and and as well as some of his earliest sketches around the era of the the hunger collection was that he was a person. We think about the business of fashion right now is these inaccessible multinational conglomerates in which maybe a human is lost in that narrative the idea of someone making something by hand. I think there is also a very important narrative about the industry that is sort of nested within McQueen's story. He straddled the moment in which the industry released shifted from almost being a a space, very similar to how contemporary artists work in their studio or maybe another analogy would be with poets. The first person lyrical I that a lyrical poems, the expression of the Self, and then what happens. When you do get all of this financial investment and all of these remote partners and capacity to franchise I think that most of us are familiar with that version of the fashion industry rather than that sort of lyrical version of fashion making as a personal handmade pursuit and I do really love that the show makes an effort to not only show the evidence of that. Version of how to make clothes and use fashion as an expressive discipline but then bridging it to his later career, and again how he still was the same person and I think that's also why people are so attracted to McQueen he really was able to remain the same despite all of the blessings and curses that come with, of course, having such extraordinary means suddenly. Available, he was really able to not just see those as ways to simply challenge expand his vision as opposed to potentially compromise it on some level that was exhibition curated Jessica Baron speaking to Monaco's mainly. Evans there, if you want more on the venerable Alexander, McQueen listen back to Monaco on design episode one, hundred and seventy nine dedicated to the designers legacy and impact. Now. It's all well considering how design affects and impacts humans. But what about our neighbors in the natural world as cities creep further and further into the surrounding countryside humans impinge on the habitats of on native neighbor's lawn of the major threats to these landscapes are roads which had dissecting while habitats at a rapid rate industraliazed ecologists. Design hats to try a knit together the remaining patches of urban bushland so that kangaroos and wallabies can hook happily through their environment. Brisbane correspondent. Mikhail. Aitken hiked up socks and brave the possibility of python sightings to find out more. Brisbane it's one of Australia's fastest growing cities. and well, climate driven architecture in much-needed transport links are developing apace. The car remains king here. The construction of new roads or expansion of existing ones is one of the biggest sources of habitat, fragmentation for wildlife. This fact alone has led to the development of a completely new brand of science road ecology. This is a very lucky applies to leave this Koalas all around here in Brisbane, but a huge number of the moving now on the road that's professor Darrell giants from Griffith University. He's an urban college est who unfortunately through necessity has developed a specialization in Rhode Ecology. Many years ago Professor Jones was approached by local government to find a solution for keeping Brisbane Koala population out of oncoming traffic. He did this by adding legends to the cove it that run beneath the roads. It was a massive success and these ledges of the standard-issue design that a now used across the city. But in early two thousands, the government came back to him with another problem. What about those large animals? The ones who aren't quite like getting their feet wet that will be impacted by the Compton road expansion in the city's west there was just an ecologist I didn't even know what road ecology wanted those days, but I was somebody who? was working in the urban environment. So I invited me onto a small committee and we all just sit around thinking what on earth that we going to do he we we didn't know what was going on anywhere else in the world that we came up with a lot suggestions and to our great astonishment and relief the engineers on the project said that sounds fascinating. This we can do this. This is an engineering challenge. Let's solve it with engineering design. And so they did the team use to massive suicide design bieber arches to effortlessly spend the full lines of traffic. On top when thousands of tons of soil and Mulch and eight thousand plants that match the native Bushland on either side. I remember standing on the top of this completely artificial pile of wood chips with little struggling plants about ten centimeters high in the blazing sun and looked at the on either side, and also watch animal is ever going to cross this thing. It's just so artificial. It's just ridiculous yet fifteen is on the Compton road overpass is the most studied animal overpass in the world besting from the top side of the smooth curves is crystal eucalypt forest brimming with small lizards, birds, snakes, and spiders, and come night time you've got your native mice, Kangaroos wallabies and Koalas. It's a vital wildlife corridor and a beautiful patch of eaker architecture to boot the company. Right one fifteen years old now is a fairly simple design the new ones that are being designer all around the world and just spectacular, really flowing organic looking shapes that go over the road Professor Jones recently assisted tollroad operator Trans Oven to build another animal overpass one, hundred percent privately funded this Eloina street animal bridge cost a little over twelve, million euro. It's eighteen meters wide with a clearance height of five point five meters. It boasts playful oblong edges and artwork by the local school. And a just a year old the bridge even with its sapling growth is a popular. Thera Fab. In just a few years time, it will have caught up to it's more luscious older brother at Compton road just a few kilometers away darrow. Should we go and have a look at Your Hodousek? Absolutely let's go. Okay. So just come off the road. You can hear it behind us and we've walked through a gate. Just found a delivery, that's the first name stood anyone is spotted. He will done I thank you so much. From what I'm looking at right now, we're looking at the overpass and it's essentially Bush. Land wouldn't be out to tell the difference between the forest behind us and the overpass was the intention but I never thought it would look this of us. You know all this not obvious because it looks exactly the same every time I come here I think, I, have to remind myself. This is effectively artificial. People put those plans there in the ground and yet it's now leaving ecosystem exactly like it should be very intelligent design. Would you say? that.

"I we're off to Saint Louis Missouri to the art space, Barrett Barreiro projects. They're a new exhibition introducing Lee Alexander. McQueen has just opened and features garments, hand-drawn sketches, patterns, and other materials from the celebrated British fashion designers career. Let's take a listen to exhibition curated Jessica Baron on this period of McQueen's career and how the exhibition captures the lyrical side of fashion design. She started by explaining how a Missouri based institution became the manager of the world's largest private collection of garments by McQueen. The founder of Breyer projects directed a small museum called the World Chess Hall of fame in Saint Louis for a while and her vision was to bring art and also fashioned to this venue and one of her most visionary exit was a project called a queen within she was looking for ways in which fashion intersected with chess and McQueen. Of course, has a very famous runway collection called. It's only a game that was realized on a chest type setting and that led her into becoming. Frankly, just sort of obsessed with McQueen, she started collecting his work, and then once she left the World Chess Hall of fame, she developed Bairbre projects and continue to develop this collection. So it's really been I think. Let's see since about two thousand thirteen that she's been amassing objects. Given that we are here in Saint Louis still are in the process of introducing people to leave L. Alexander McQueen. The joy of our of presenting McQueen to our public is that they are acquainting themselves of this fact that fashion can operate on the level of contemporary. Are there still is this I think I'd say a general perception that the the two or maybe not. Compatible fine artists somehow operating in in a realm in which fashion does not necessarily fit in. So McQueen especially this figure especially since savage beauty presented his work who has I think really been able to create that bridge between fine heart and and the fashion community. One. Of the most remarkable pieces is a very early work from highland rape which was. A controversial show, of course, even starting with the title, but it's deconstructed dress that consists of cellophane and automobile spray paint. Little bits of thread weaving through it. I think that what's so remarkable about it is that it is using such unconventional and actually everyday materials, and this is maybe the joy of the show itself is at a number of the acquisitions that we've acquired are from this period from around one, thousand, nine, hundred, five to nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, which is before McQueen, of course joined the AFC von she this is. Shortly after he, of course, graduated from central Saint Martins and he was just really operating I'd say like a visual artist in a studio without any money just surrounded by a handful of friends and they were not working with I, guess would become later accessible to him but high quality materials of the traditional sort. So the fact that he went out clubbing one night with a friend and saw role of cellophane. Let's make address out of this, and in fact, did do that and then that material reappeared. In this particular address that we did acquire to me is just such an amazing thread to these early days where he was. An artist essentially before a brand before he had access to all the sort of sophisticated means through which he did develop in fact, groundbreaking textiles whatnot there was always this core of innovation even with the most common materials early on and I just love that human connection to Kinda scrappy diy aesthetic. That again was also very much informed by AVANGARD club culture. He notably was always a huge fan of bowery had seen Leib our perform what I'm wearing a number this time with a fabric face, you might have noticed and has a star Green Star. or I like to call it a staff fish Moody's, which is around by secret term using quite heavily the season that kind of aspect kind of playing out through the use of cellophane in this particular dress, and then of course, I'd say the other interesting aspect of the show that I think was just a joy to be able to see what is what makes McQueen. So special is that once he did gain access to all of these more expensive materials are really incredible and large group of people through which he collaborated. It was still McQueen's. For. In a Horn of plenty the OH, mosh to Leigh bowery still exists but it's of course it's done with digitally woven venture cards as opposed to maybe silkscreen fabrics which he was doing early on. So I think that that's what sort of the real joy of putting this show together especially with our new acquisitions as you see, the authenticity of his vision from those early days to the league career, all extinct, and I'm in the office elite blood specialist decided to. This. She. Eat frequently turns film for the concepts of his runway presentations, and that's something that we actually of pull out in this new exhibition. Introducing Leah McLean is specifically sort of charting the various cinematic sources that inspired his runway shows from the hunger. There's some alien strange my. That's right. WanNa knows what is it To overlook to the birds. To they shoot horses don't they but that was ultimately he called deliverance and drawing this cinematic connection is also really Accessible way for people to understand that performance dimension. Nothing. Nothing in the least serious. I mean he was really thinking about not merely close on bodies but close on bodies that are moving in performing in an orchestrated space with sound and this was I'd say getting the closest equivalent would be something like creating directing a film..

Steve starts out with the basics of the acoustic and electric guitars quickly. Get you up and running with easy fun exercises. These are exercises ever find. I don't know but I think Steve is going to make them fun. The types of courses here are introduction to the course that that's on everyone by the way you'll the each course has an an overview if you are a beginner watch them if you're like me and you've been playing all the time you're terribly impatient. I usually skip to the meat and potatoes stuff so this also has meet the Acoustic Guitar. beat the classical guitar. Meet the twelve string guitar meet the Electric Guitar less than six. All about the string so these are very like basic. This is the stuff for the very very Very beginning type Entry Level type folks however I would imagine that eventually playing a long time and I find this out. Sometimes I'll pop onto one of these beginner things and I'll pick up something that I didn't know or something that like I could improve on if I would watch With with the particular teachers going for so even if you are advanced ask pays to go back and take a little peek at the beginning stuff. 'cause everybody's got a little different take on that So and what's great about jam play. Is that there isn't just one person. Teaching beginner okay There are on account and I'VE GOT WE'VE GOT Steve. We've got Jim. We've got Jessica Randall. We've got eve we've got orval we've got David we've got mark we've got another David we've got all kind of folks you're teaching So you can get it from different approaches so so say you know you you pull up Steve You'll Burg's beginning course. You'RE GONNA Steve. You're not doing it for me. Maybe maybe jumped down the Jessica Baron and then you go but Jessica. She's speaking my language. I'm getting it so this gives you a lot opposite. Take lessons from a bunch bunch of different teachers. Also you say lessons from all of them if you want because like I said everybody every teacher brings something unique. Even when they're we know you could go to five different teachers to learn to see cord and you would learn secord. We get something different from. Even though they were just teaching the plant play secord. You would get something a little bit different from each teacher. So this is a very comprehensive Also took keeps you from getting bored. We get a little tired one. Digi can pop over and get something out of the teacher. Every one of the lessons has a tab for base to base players. You are not forgotten you are involved. I promise Phase as to is really fun this is where this war for of us that are you know advanced. Intermediate Intermediate advanced do again under is a Guitar Tab and obey steps you can pick what you want the U and you can also do this in two different ways this is. What's really interesting when you get to face a Face to you and you don't have to start with phase one. I mean you know if you're already playing and you feel like you've got that stuff jumping wherever you like if you get into something that's to advance scope back. It's super easy to do. And you don't have to spend a Lotta time. You've got to figure out quickly where you WANNA be in any case With face to you've got a couple of different things you can do. I have genre based lessons. So if you're if you go into face to defaults to genre based and and that gives you can learn from Rock Jazz Blues Finger style metal. BLUEGRASS classical surf funk. I would love to I. I WANNA dig into some Some some funk because I'm a huge rhythm guitar playing kind of person I love when guys can do little neat inside voice. Nice things and stuff like that so I definitely have to check that out. reggae Gospel Acoustic rock absolutely very very comprehensive. Here now. Now what you can do if you go like that's cool but I'm interested in a specific skill intermediate or I'm beyond beginning and I want her own a few specific skills. Well you can click over here on the right side of the screen you can choose to click skill based and now the tabs. The lessons are speed and in technique helpers and tips singing with guitar I've been telling is for years. Sing along with what you play on the guitar. Very very important. Glad that they have that on your reading music very very important. I know it's not in vogue and it's not sexy but learning to read music very important lead. Improvisation twelve string rhythm ear training. Something that like I think all of us could brush up on B It could be very very helpful so so you have these different skill building lessons in face to along with exploring things with different genres interest. Let what we're talking about this Lucia popp over to a lesson. Let's just I haven't looked at this year. I'm just GonNa hit speed and technique and here is Chris. li-pei Chris is like he's one of the main guys On one of the main teachers here I believe he may even be some sort of owner of the site as well. But we're going to hear some warm up techniques some. Just click on this to give you guys a little taste of what you see. There's a player like looks like Youtube player. Sort of and you can't vote up and down as well there's supplemental things across the bottom of the tabs. You can create your own notes. You can leave your own comments.

Some of this stuff will work for you guys this but this is this content of this. I'm going to fast forward through this little bit. Hold all of your fingers on the frets so that each finger let me pause this real quick. One of the things jammed play does very very well as gives you multiple views of Qatar. The the the teachers fingers the picking hand so you can can pick up a lot without so if you're if you're like me I get real impatient with tabs. A part of it is. I'm a little bit older. I have a hard time seeing them. So it's easier for me to just look could somebody's fingers and check out what they're doing so you could see here the The interface is very very. There's a lot of flexibility there's a little On the left side screen is a little like bio and stuff like that on the right side of the screen. you can skip around through different aspects of the lesson and just kind of hit what you want very so you know you don't have to go through the whole thing if you've if if you look at ten jam play lessons maybe you don't need to see the intro. Each time right make sense so I want to oops. I didn't WanNa go that way. I WanNa do this and I want to go back. We're going to go back. Let's go back there. We are okay so that is just a quick. Look at that at the What the lessons look like there as you see that? That is that the general layout of them Face three is when you get into playing some songs. This is very very cool so there are.

"Sounds like an earlier Sigler may be all wrapped up in the cerita area. Eastbound ninety one at Bloomfield. It's seven oh, seven this is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. The US fight against the Taliban is not over. But the man known as the American Taliban is free in the fall of two thousand one not long after nine eleven Afghan forces allied with the United States captured John Walker Lindh. He's been in a US federal prison for seventeen years until he was released today earlier, we spoke with NPR national security correspondent Hannah Allam and asked how an American at that time ended up in Afghanistan. Yeah. He grew up in California and around age sixteen. He became interested in a slum ends up converting, and then with his parents permission, he sets off to study Arabic and to slam in Yemen. And then Pakistan, and then he crosses in tough ghanistan and things get really murky he sympathized with the Taliban, 'cause goes off to join them ends up at a training camp where at one point he even met Osama bin Laden. Yeah. This was before nine eleven but definitely after other Al Qaeda tax on US interest. How did you end up in US custody after the United States struck back for nine eleven and Afghantistan? Right. Well, in November, two thousand one Lind was captured by the Afghan Northern Alliance. He's questioned by CIA officers who are on the ground. And then moments after his question this big prisoner revolt unfolds. One of those agents Mike Spann was killed the revolt, put down and in this long and bloody ordeal Lynn gets shot in the leg. But he doesn't end up as one of only eighty six of several. Hundred telephone prisoners to survive. So this is interesting. We've got a guy who served seventeen years of a twenty year sentence. He's out on good behavior, can't hold them any longer, but it's unusual because normally prisoners of war would be prisoners of war until the war is over, then you let them go. But now you have a sort of endless war against terror groups, aren't there, multiple people like John Walker Lindh, who were supposed to get out at some point certainly, you know, he was he sometimes called, detainee, number one in the so-called war on terror. And now in a way he's parolee number one and is it going to be a test case for for, you know, several people who are going to be released in the next four or five years. I spoke to Michael Jensen. He's a researcher at the start center to terrorism research center at the university of Maryland. And he talked about this, this is this is what he said, a wave, that's coming at us right now that we are not currently prepared to deal with. So my hope with the Lynn case is. Is that people look at it carefully assess what his risks in what his needs are? We use that as a foundation to build on for future releases. So, you know, we need to move quickly on this. It's it's in the next four years. We're gonna have a hundred of these individuals that were trying to reintegrate back into US communities. Wow. One hundred. That's right. And Jensen said there is no national plan no strategy in place to deal with this. So there's a scramble now to come up with one. We'll if Lind is the test case, let's think this through. He gets out today. There's still a battle against the Taliban and other terror groups house, the United States going to deal with him. Yeah, absolutely. He he'll get out and he has a probation period of three years. And so in that time, he'll be watched very closely really restricted access to the internet. Pretty much everything he does online for the next three years has to be signed off on by his parole. Officer, always monitored the same way that parents may monitor their kids only more. Extremely right, much more extremely. There's also travel restrictions and other sort of, you know, the normal restrictions for people on probation.

"United States captured John Walker Lindh. He's been in federal prison, seventeen years, and is to be released today. NPR national security correspondent, Hannah Allom is covering the story, which has many implications could morning. Good morning. An American end up in Afghanistan on the side of the Taliban. Well, it's certainly an unusual case Lind was born into a Catholic family in DC. His dad was a lawyer at the Justice department. Yeah. He grew up in California and around age sixteen. He became interested in this slum ends up converting, and then with his parents permission, he sets off to study Arabic and dislodge him in Yemen. And then. Pakistan. And then he crosses in tough ghanistan and things get really murky he sympathized with the Taliban, 'cause goes off to join them ends up at a training camp where at one point he even met Osama bin Laden. Yeah. This was before nine eleven but definitely after other Al Qaeda attacks on US interest. How did you end up in US custody after the United States struck back for nine eleven and Afghantistan? Right. Well, in November, two thousand one Lind was captured by the Afghan Northern Alliance. He's questioned by CIA officers who are on the ground. And then moments after his question this big prisoner revolt unfolds. One of those agents Mike Spann was killed the revolt, put down and in this long and bloody ordeal Lynn gets shot in the leg. But he doesn't end up as one of only eighty six of several hundred Taliban prisoners to survive. So this is interesting. We've got a guy who served seventeen years of a twenty year sentence. He's out on good behavior. Can't hold him any longer, but it's unusual because normally. Prisoners of war would be prisoners of war until the war is over, then you, let them go. But now you have a sort of endless war against terror groups, and aren't there, multiple people like John Walker Lindh, who was supposed to get out at some point certainly, you know, he was he sometimes called, detainee, number one in the so-called war on terror. And now in a way he's parolee number one and is it going to be a test case for for, you know, several people who are going to be released in the next four or five years. I spoke to Michael Jensen. He's a researcher at the start center said terrorism research center at the university of Maryland. And he talked about this. This is this is what he said, a wave, that's coming at us right now that we're not currently prepared to deal with. So my hope with the Lynn case is, is that people look at it carefully assess what his risks and what his needs are we use that as a foundation to build on for future release? So, you know, we need to move quickly on this. It's it's in the next four years. We're going to have a hundred of these individuals that were trying to reintegrate back into US communities. Wow. One hundred. That's right. And Jensen said, there's no national plan no strategy in place to deal with this. So there's a scramble now to come up with one. Well, if Lind is the test case, let's think this through. He gets out today. There's still a battle against the Taliban and other terror groups house, the United States going to deal with him. Yeah, absolutely. He he'll get out and he has a probation period of three years. And so in that time, he'll be watched very closely really restricted access to the internet. Pretty much everything he does online for the next three years has to be signed off on by his parole. Officer, always monitored the same way that parents may monitor their kids only more extremely right, much more extremely. There's also travel restrictions and other sort of, you know, the normal restrictions for people on probation. But really with with. Lynne's. The extra restrictions on the internet are to prevent him from becoming an online recruiter for, you know, extremist groups Hannah. Thanks so much. Thank you. That's NPR's Hannah alone.
