Interview With Robert Livingston

"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

Inland West Coast Roadtrips

"If, you're ready for a memorable road trip where there's more to explore the freeway rest stops Chandler O'Leary wants to take you up the US west coast. She joined us a few months ago with tips for driving the Pacific. Coast highway from San Diego to big Sur, the redwoods and the Pacific northwest rainforest. She's back to recommend a few of the inland highlights from the desert playground palm springs through the orchards. California's Central Valley, old western Sacramento, and all the way up to my home turf around Seattle the detailed in her book the Best Post, a road trip Alice Chandler welcome back. Thank you for having me. So we talked about the coastal route before now we're GonNa talk about the inland. Route make a case for not taking the coastal route because I would think everybody wants to go up the coast, but you make the inland sound pretty good. I feel like if you like your vintage, Americana this the road trip for you and yeah, you're not gonna see the coasts until you get all the way up to Washington but if you're really into things like palm springs and mid, century architecture old neon signs, a roadside attractions, you're going to get tons of that on this route. I love roadside attractions, publicity stunts from fifty of your. What are few of those that come to mind because I just think they're so funky. The giant oranges that used to be Oliver California and there's a couple of them left and they were they to be drink stands for you know when you were thirsty on the road, you get fresh California orange juice right and they're still a couple of them left along old either farm. There's farm country all the way along the way absolutely all three states. So we're going sixteen hundred miles and apparently it's the old isn't isn't like the highway ninety nine is of it is yeah and in California highway. Ninety nine mostly is still intact and it's even a freeway in some places, but once you get into Oregon and Washington because of the mountains, it starts getting a little bit tricky kind of pick. Cherry pick sections of the old road and then connect with I five. Yes. It's just like route sixty six how it's kind of been swallowed up by interstate in places like five is it's sort of the enemy on the other hand. It's practical because he gets you from A to B in a hurry. Yeah. What's your philosophy you're gonna go from going basically from San Diego to Bellingham Right What's your philosophy on the balance between I five in the old roads I think you wanna use I five when you WanNa, make good time and take the old rose if you wanna have a good time. That's kind of how I look at it good time or have a good time. That's good. So let's talk about California first of all New Mexico on one side of the border and collection collects. It collects co is on the or is on the California side and Mexico on the Mexico side. So that's where a route starts are these kind of sister towns in away or are unfortunately there's a big old wall separate him so you Or now you have to go through the big international the big national checkpoint because I did that between San Diego and Tijuana was easy just walk across I think right now that's not the same as it used to be, but it may be again I mean who who knows what we're starting in Calexico then What's the flavor of collects goes? That's just a springboard or anything to do there. It's a sleepy small town and but it's kind of you kind of get the flavor of where you're starting and you're going to start out in the low desert. You're below sea level here that's below civil come into palm springs. A waste. It is palm springs to us. Palm Springs is is kind of Wacky. It got big in the nineteen fifties. So there's a lot of great mid century architecture there, but it's very glamorous. It's very glitzy. There's a lot of designers their fashion show was movie stars that doesn't retirement communities to. snowbirds it's kind of this weird mix of college spring breakers and snowbirds. Okay. So you put that in your checklist and then some I know in your book, you talk about a lot of worthy detours you know in one of your favorites would be Joshua Tree National Park. Yes. Joshua tree is stunning and Joshua tree trees actually the high desert. So it's above palm springs at altitude. So it has a completely different desert climate different plants, different animals. So Joshua Tree is one of these cartoon book yeah. Of Justice Joshua Tree is these classic kind of quintessential cactus Yes. Yes. So what do you do in Joshua Tree National Park Jessica cactus there's a great hikes. There's actually only those cactus in one small part of the park is an enormous park. So there's different bombs great rock formations they are beautiful scenery and

Comets, Night Sky, and More

"So this comic comment Neil wise really has been a delight I mean I. Don't think people really knew about it until March and then suddenly. Now, they're saying. This is a very visible comment. In fact, in some instances, you can see it with the naked eye, and certainly can see it with Nike and our cameras will have no problem seen at all. If we have good conditions, and so I'm pretty excited about this now. Up until this point up until really today where I live in California. You had to get up in the wee hours of the morning. to photograph which I don't mind I I. Mean I'm an Early Guy, I get up pretty early, but when I read that when we get to you know the thirteenth and the fourteenth. And the fifteenth, of July then we can start to see it above the northern horizon not too far above five to ten degrees depending on where you are above the northern horizon. In the evening. The evening which I really like because you know I, get up in the morning I I tend to do my work and do all that sort of stuff and I can do all of that I can do a full day's work. Have everything ready to go and then celebrate in the evening? Maybe get out there a little early do a little twilight photography, which is always fun right? Maybe shoot the comet if I can get a good anglong and get a good view of it, and then just keep hanging out and see what else I find. You can get a good shot of the Milky Way. So I'm pretty jazzed about this because I have to tell you. I can't be the only person thinking Oh. My God I can't take another picture of the cat or the walk. I do every day or you know. This routine that I mean the Rut. That I am in during shelter in place in terms of the physical out, there is about six feet deep right now, walking into so much I'm getting a lot done inside and being productive and doing all that stuff. That's great work. You know I I've been disciplined and focused and productive. Yeah, but in terms of the stuff that I really like in terms of getting out there and mixing it up in the city, doing some street, photography, or traveling or even going out to eat. You know all that kind of stuff. No. Hasn't been any of it and I really want to take a picture of something different than what I see every day and I think this. This is a good opportunity I don't even have to go very far. I'm scanning out some locations tomorrow. Night's GonNa. Be My first night. Actually tonight is going to be my first night. Because as you're listening to this, it's Tuesday yes. So I mean right now. It's Monday for me. That's you know there's my head right there. Tomorrow, Night's GonNa be my first night, and then if it doesn't go as well as I want, or if I learned some things that I wanted to apply again I'm GONNA. Go Out Wednesday night to supposed to have clear skies both nights up here in northern California for this type of photography the comments going to be about five to ten degrees above the horizon, so I need to find a good spot. I'm working on that right now. And I'm just going to get out and do some shots I'm GonNa do some shots now. My view of the comet shot for me anyway, and and I have shot comments before Hale Bopp I shot Haley's comet out in the desert out of Joshua Tree. Way Back when with film with CODA color like something, crazy cutter via our four hundred or something like that. It's a very grainy shot, but it's sharp in. It's actually quite beautiful I. Still Look At. It sometimes got Joshua Trees in the foreground all that. I'm not going to go out to the desert for this, but i. do have some good locations around here scouting them out right now for tomorrow night. And? Go out and just see if I'm really lucky if I have a great night when I go out. I have a great night I have the possibility of getting like two or three or four different shots in one photo shoot I love that especially after the drought that I've been in just in recent weeks. So I thought okay, let's talk about this. Is Talk about you know how to prepare talk about you know what to look for? Because a lot of you I'm sure in the same boat as me. This might sound appealing is a different kind of assignment begun. If we could even compare shots, you know if I get a shot and you get a shot and all that maybe I'll do a facebook post where we can compare shots well. Listen how goes first. And then we'll, we'll take it from there. So I've got five things that I have learned from doing these sort of shoots that I. Want to share with you right now. Really I mean a lot of this stuff. You're GONNA probably already. Know more what I'm trying to do today. Is this get you excited about going out and doing this and hoping that you will go out and do it if you have the opportunity to do so?

But possibility of another government shutdown or are you folks at Joshua tree or the Rangers. They're trying to prepare for that possibility. Well, they're they're professionals. You know, they they they came to the National Park Service because they they love public service, and they love taking care of national parks. So they're doing everything they can right now to mitigate the damage that occurred during the shutdown and to educate the public and reaching out to our partners to help out as much as possible. If there if there were to be another shutdown or something like that are are park association that you know, they volunteered to operate. Our visitor centers, you know, during the shutdown, and, you know, just just having those those exhibits they're having them giving out safety warnings and things like that. That would be you know, that that's a godsend to have folks to be able to do things like that the businesses and the local community. I'm sure they are ready to jump to it again and start helping us with with toilets and things like that. I we're really trying to message to the public right now. Just how fragile the desert ecosystem is and just how important it is. For folks to stay on the road. You know? If there's a shutdown, you know, pick up your garbage, you know, don't don't don't expect that someone's going to be there to pick it up to use some of the common sense that to me is I know 'cause I've been working for the park service for almost thirty years. You know, you you don't run your dog, you know, through wildland his lots of wildlife, you don't operate a drone or it's going to harass. You know birds that are up there.

Fallout Grows As Partial Government Shutdown Drags On Into New Year

"We are in day seven of the partial federal government shutdown, and there's no end in sight, President Trump wants congress to approve billions of dollars for a border wall. Democrats who are set to take control of the house next week saying, no, so far the effects of this shutdown have been relatively muted. Many people are taking time off for the holidays, but the fallout could grow if the shutdown stretches well into the new year as NPR's Scott Horsely reports the two weeks around Christmas are some of the busiest Joshua tree national park in California when rock climbers and car campers flocked to the high desert getaway the cactus and the campers are still there this week, but the Rangers would ordinarily patrol the park have been sent packing by the government, shutdown visitor centers are closed all the bathrooms are still open.

The Riddick runs a nonprofit group called friends of Josh which. Three national park. He says those friends are grateful access to the park has not been cut off. But with the government shutdown approaching its second weekend, and no sign of compromise on the horizon, the rhetoric and others are digging in for what could be a long term project as dumpsters fill up and the pit toilets fill up. You know, what kind of solutions can we make to solve those problems? So far, the shutdown affecting about a quarter of the federal government has been little more than an inconvenience to some and invisible. Too many critical federal employees have stayed on the job. And while they're not being paid at the moment that won't really show up until their next paychecks are due January eleventh still Jacqueline Simon who's with the largest union federal workers says the longer the shutdown drags on the more widely its effects we felt your agency or affected by the funding wrap that had a little bit of money leftover her take him to the end of the year.

If the shutdown continues White House, it kind of has Kevin Hassett says the shutdown should not do lasting damage to the US economy. But he admits it could cause a blip in the unemployment rate. If hundreds of thousands of federal workers are still idle in a couple of weeks, if the shutdown extended through the job survey week about January tenth, then the government workers who are not reporting to work would show up in the unemployment statistics as well.

"Us tonight got some whole conversation lined up for the next. Four hours one central theme. With both of our main topics. And guests tonight is the alluring, nature of the unknown the way it can sync it's hooks into a straws in captures us for all time James, MacLennan is an example he's a sociologist as a PHD he's he's a man of science a. Careful rational researcher who set out decades ago to study people who might be described as as, a deviant subculture a unique population that had largely been ignored by his fellow sociologists in grad students called spiritualists and I use that term kinda the loosest way possible because in a sense of. Tonight's discussion it includes not only, true believers. Who try to contact spirits or the dead or beings on some other plane of existence through methods often employed by Mediums but. It also includes scientists are boiled. Investigators who dared to take on topics that almost always lead to ridicule. And scorn in their professional circles Dr McLennan set out to. Expose frauds charlatans and huckster so that's what he figured they were going to be he figured the people who claim to be in, contact with disembodied spirits must be pulling some kind of tricks. Sleight of hand skulduggery pulling. The wool over the eyes of. Gullible people but a funny thing, happened over the years he got hooked he was part of a group that had ongoing communication conversations even with unknown, editors that managed to pull off some pretty astonishing maneuvers if their tricks they're very good tricks. He's written several books about the ongoing communications with the call at the supernatural if you want, the latest book is called the entity letters and it's a page Turner for sure Dr McLennan joins me in the second half of the program tonight With firsthand eyewitness stories and some physical evidence, that really should raise a goose bumper to but I something closer to home you know many of you have likely heard about the contact the. Movement of the fifties and sixties this, was long before. Alien abductions were widely known about the contact these were. Often charismatic leaders almost like gurus who claim to have had ongoing communication with space visitors people from Venus or from Mars or from some other worlds farther out that we had never. Heard of before the space people would deliver. These sweeping messages. Like alien editorials often words of warning about how earthlings were headed in the wrong direction sort of like the warnings and that old SCI fi classic, the day the earth. Stood still one of the best known contact tease was George van Tassell who. Helped organize these massive UFO themed gatherings at a place called, giant rock in the Mojave desert southern. California. And I'll tell you I don't know if you've been there Giant rock is aptly named we've mentioned it many times on this program, before that whole area around Joshua tree seems to be like a magnet. For a subset of people artists musicians hermits people who want to drop out go off the grid creative people spiritual people and and more than a few crazy people and I say that with, a fondness because I've, spent a lot of time out there There is a, vibe to that part of the world for sure in the national park the Joshua tree national park in, places like Landers and pioneer town lot. Of famous people hide out. Out there along with some infamous folks as well I'm sure and a lot of people who come for a visit never leave George van Tassell, was, John, drawn, to giant rocky moved his family, out there and started, a movement, and he left behind a very strange structure known as. The Integra Tron based on designs that he says the space people beamed into his head He said this thing. Would be a part time. Time machine kind of a part-time rejuvenator miracle healer a, life extender. A lot of people, thought he was, a loon the FBI thought he might be a. Comedy but people who knew him believed him then and they believe him now and. A filmmaker. Named Jonathan Berman spent a lot of time on the ground in. And around Joshua tree to put together a wonderful, new documentary film calling all earthlings is the title, I watched it today it is immensely entertaining and it focuses on an almost forgotten slice of Americana of, American life Jonathan Berman joins me momentarily In the news perhaps you. Heard about the death of Dr Michael persinger he was well known. Scientists who pursued paranormal subjects with great vigor I think. He probably enraged and, challenged Ufologists ESP investigators among others the God helmet you ever heard of that it was, his idea and. He suggested prosaic explanations for things like near death experiences and other psychic phenomena even though he, believed psychic phenomena to be true Dr persinger died this past week also heard some statements from Dr Jacques. Ballet that in which he basically says he's moving on from Ufology moving away from it says he's had enough doesn't think. The field is making any progress whatsoever so he's. Calling it quits and, I really hope that isn't true I've expressed my opinion about Jacques valet. On this program many times I am also. Told that doctor valet has expressed similar sentiments in previous years hopefully whatever he does in the future we'll still relate to larger questions that we're all pursuing even if he does not call. It Ufology webmaster Gregg Bishop and I have, put together our usual assortment of items and audit. These cold from various media sources around the world we call it. Naps news and you can find on the coast to. Coast website Among the stories posted there tonight Can't, believe I have to say this but there's a story about scientific evidence proving, why the earth is not flat why the earth is not flat I'm not gonna get into details because I shouldn't have to I mentioned jock valet, a moment. Ago we, have a piece about his recent take on consciousness, as it relates to the emergence of the worldwide web and a related subject artificial intelligence you know we're. On the cusp of some truly momentous changes economic and social changes as, machines take more and more jobs that have. Until now been done by. Unions what all of us do when the, world's economy, doesn't need us anymore doesn't need us to do much, of anything I'm sure our corporate overlords we'll, take good care of us. Right housing medical care maybe not little update about the to the stars academy which has been pretty busy of late testing weird samples of unknown material. We got a story about. It and also a brief video, interview with Primatology Dr Jane Goodall in, which she is asked for probably the teeth time what she thinks about Bigfoot, she's also asked about the pasta Ability of intelligent ET life I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

"joshua tree" Discussed on /Film Daily

"The ben what do we know what does it mean yes so a website called omega underground says that the new working title for the ob one movie is joshua tree and that is the name of a species of desert tree it's also the name of a major national park here in southern california is not too far from la um as far as what this could mean uh there are a couple of different things that that immediately came to mind for me so one is that um the you know that calling this movie something that is like a desert uh park should immediately hearkens two tattooing right like that's the key location that we think of when we think about only commit canot be because he spent so much of his life there and uh you know looking over luke and all of this and that's where we first met him in the nineteen seventy seven stores film so and i and that's also where we assume this moods can take place in between revenge of the seth and a new hope summer exactly yes uh so it's possible bet lucasfilm already knows that they want to set this spinoff movie on tattooing because like you just mentioned that seems like the most logical place for an obe one solo movie and in the article that i wrote on the on the website you can read about a possible connection that the comics might have to what this movie could be but uh at the scene oath possible that they could film some sequences in joshua tree but the script hasn't even been written yet i think gets way too early to start talking about stuff like that i think.
