Young people focus on We're going to report on the media industry. Do you ever get contacted by them asking you to explain Why the media won't pick up on these major stories. No, it's not. It's a joke. Right? Contact us is the opposite is to pull pull apart what we've done. You know. Glenn Kessler at The Washington Post, tried to pull apart our story on just recently on the cafe Milano that story very gullible, Accepting the word of the White House against what? You know the evidence that we've produced. It makes no sense. These are not. These people are not acting as reporters or journalists, but as ciphers for either the surveillance, state or champions of Biden White House and which you know is extraordinary. Considering for four years under Trump, Um the the media was so ferociously antagonistic and I'm not even against that. You know, I think you you hold power to account that's sort of what journalists are meant to do, But then you don't turn around and become Supine puppy dogs When you know the other side gets into office, Um, I It's just
Crime Prevention Research Center John Lott Wishes Media Called out Biden on Gun Fallacies
"Trying to And this is a dangerous thing. John Locke. To get into the mind of people like Joe Biden and try and understand this, we have open borders. So when people coming into this country Who are violent criminals. Violent criminals and many of them we don't even know who they are and so forth, and so on. So if the if the administration won't even control people from coming into the country, how are they going to control things from coming into the country? The border is open. That's number one. They appoint these judges who are soft on crime. They are soft on crime. That's number two. They never denounced Soros for funding in these critical cities and other places. These prosecutors who run on not prosecuting number three, they call this bail reform. It's not bail reform its get out of jail free for violent criminals since you pointed out Meanwhile, he talks about who needs 100 rounds. You know, there's a deer have a Kevlar vest. He says it twice. It's so stupid. 100 rounds. Who needs 100? I'll tell you If somebody breaks in your house, there's three people breaking into your house. So they all have semi automatic weapons. I think I'd want 100 rounds, wouldn't you? Sure. Well, you know, One of the ironies is most states banned you using an air 15 to go and hunt deer. And the reason is is because the caliber is sufficiently small that they're worried that you will wound and not kill the deer. I mean, I don't know. Maybe that's too esoteric to get into. But it's just I don't know. It's I wish we had a media that would call them out on these types that don't hold your breast. Your life will be very short for you.

"Yes because it's more stable okay. I understand what you're saying all right. Well that's all i have for you eric. I hope this look into our future was in too bleak. Oh no it sounds like we did something to fix it before. It became a huge problem. Yeah well some governments did. Us government did on the right steps to at least but there was actually more concerned that was brought up. Recently because starlink you know the the space x project to give internet everybody from satellites that would add i think twice as many satellites that are in orbit right now so requires much more corrections to keep it from hitting anything else. In fact i think isa at the european space agency got a little annoyed with it and they started tweeting. Just like oh my god. I can't believe we have to move our own satellites that are doing important scientific work for this internet. So yeah i guess i hopefully. It'll be a tragedy that's been averted.

"Mass and a lot more velocity. Yeah so it can penetrate much much further than nine mill can and it has so much kinetic energy to it because of this masimba la city. And that's really what does all the damage putting a nine millimeter bullet into orbits gives it five hundred times more energy than it would like you know just a regular gun space guns yeah space guns so this small bullet has the potential to do crazy amount of damage now. I know what you might be thinking but there's so much debris probably already out there than how do we still get space key bathroom After all we have the s. Well it's definitely a problem for sure. That's exactly what i was thinking. Actually we can deal with it for now. There are oftentimes there's holes and satellites or perhaps windows of capsules have a little crater in them which is from debris that hits it but to try to prevent this from happening. There's a lot of monitoring stations that Look for debris that's larger than about ten centimeters and there's a massive catalogue of them if you were to take a guess of how of an order of magnitude of how many pieces of debris that are smaller than say a centimeter more than six. I literally have no idea okay. There hundreds of millions out there. There's so many pieces of debris out there but a lot of them are small enough that we can just deal with it all right if we have window up there and it gets smashed. We'll just take that capsule down and then repair it. So it's not a problem right now but that would beg the question. Has there already been a satellite collision which has as you asked before. There were of course missiles fired as i told you before but To satellite collisions actually happened. I think there are a few instances like there aren't very many. There's probably several. So i'll tell you about one where it's so unfortunate because two satellites literally t-boned each other almost perfectly..
"kessler" Discussed on More than Abstract
"Satellite right. There turns out there's a lot of gps satellites up there and only a finite number of orbits that they can have around the earth. That's probably right. I mean space is really big. It's not like you won't have advanced notice before it gets close to you after all it's not like there's something out there in the middle of nowhere space to swerve a satellite out of place right right. Do you think there's anything out there when you phrase it like that knowing gravity's weird maybe some sort of weird gravity well That was a trick question. There's there's not really anything out there unless you put something out there okay. Maybe an asteroid. But we're going to ignore that so all right if you know it's coming like there's another satellite intersecting your orbit. Just move out of the way in. Come back to your normal or when it's gone right like that'd be pretty easy to do if you have two satellites now. Can you throw it a guest. As to how many active satellites there are around the earth there has to be like hundreds of thousands woah. Okay okay it's too much. It's a little under twenty eight hundred. That are active right now. Okay that are active. What about the space junk ones. Well i mean they're still around some of them have deorbit it. But there's there's still there. Yeah remember these things still cost like hundreds of millions of dollars to get these satellites made up there in the space so can have millions hundreds of thousands. Now that would be all fine. But what do you do once. You're done with this satellite and it's reached the end of its lifetime. So eric say you were put in charge of this. How would you deal with dead satellite. Not much not much. You just leave it there. I don't know how ineffective way to reclaim it. But say you had a bunch of resources at your disposal a disposal. What would you try to do. Ideally if i had a choice and the ability to do it i'd love to have a way to recapture it. Neither an essentially recycle it. That would make sense yet. Did these are expensive. Picks up there but okay. What if instead you're in the military in a certain country and you needed to get rid of that satellite like it had some sensitive thing in it that you didn't want out there. Oh you blow it up. Yeah that's that's exactly what happens is certain satellites There would be shut down with missile essentially in space though it. If it's an orbit that wouldn't really be down. That would be exploding in a bunch of directions that leave stuff in orbit. Yeah i suppose that expression that was trying to say but yeah. I wouldn't go down anywhere. It would be shot still okay. It doesn't quite the same ring. So so that's what used to happen with satellites where military's which is shoot them down with a missile but there's an issue that arises from that there's a bunch of debris that's scattered all over the place because of the satellite and since it's space it's it'll be there and ongoing for a while especially if it's higher than lower orbit in low-earth there's still some atmosphere up there so any debris will eventually within several years deorbit but in that time it would still be able to make hundreds to thousands of revolutions earth. All of which is more opportunities to say it and other satellite And when that happens then there's a bit of a chain reaction that starts to warm. How often do satellites get hit. Well i'll get to that all right perfect. So debris collides with the satellite and depending on its trajectory can either..

"More that start podcast where i try to make sense at the world without using jargon and tell to eric i'm prankul and i'm joined by irc. Hey how's how's it going. I'm doing well. How are you hanging in here. Like like everybody else. So this week. I'm going to tell you about a possible future rather than a story of something. That already happened all right. I'm going to be talking about kessler syndrome. Have you heard about this before. No sounds interesting though. That's perfect let's get into it but before i do. This has nothing to do with biology or illnesses or psychological things even though the name might suggest that okay. It's kind of weird naming phenomena syndrome without being biology related. It would be strange to ought named something syndrome if it doesn't have anything to do with biology or psych. Yeah but here. We're going to be talking about satellites. Oh okay say you want to launch a gps satellite ignoring all the logistics of getting it off the ground making it putting it in orbit satellite will have to stay in one specific orbit around the world for the rest of its lifetime in this case it would actually go to. I think it's medium earth or pretty pretty far up okay just as a bit of background. There are layers to orbits. That satellites usually have so they don't run into each other correct that that and sometimes you want to the satellite to super apps. Follow a part of the earth so you put it in geostationary orbit and that orbit Needs be further away there. So there's layers to this you go from low earth to medium to high slash geostationary orbits. This is sort of the categories that they're put in psych western for your first before we keep going. Is there a difference in the orbit to the signal strength. That the satellite. Has i suppose so. But with oftentimes with satellites. And maybe they're gathering scientific data. They can usually transmitted without needing to be too close to the earth. Gotcha yes is the short answer. I'll take this. Gps satellite that we're launching its cruising along with wait. There's there's something that you seen the distance. What is that is it..

Every Wednesday and it was actually his regular golf's weeklies. His League and that's. Why did I for some reason? Didn't we like thought? We changed it back and forth a couple of times. Our was only one change I think once change I think for just consistency. We just said. Let's just do okay. Maybe that's what. Kessler anymore than we. You already do so i. do remember that because. It was something very important. You know it was probably something really big a legal and what's helping asshole? Get us. And then we found. It's because Rosenbaum was golfing. That was pretty much it. He he eventually stop. Telling Kessler that on the phone because you I think you were worried like what is the deal? What's going on well found out? It's his golf game.

"When he talked about having early opinion, yes, because that struck out stuck out to me like how can you not early at this point?

Crawls quoted as saying. We've got a pretty good picture of what show did. It's easy to form judgment there and terminate, which is definitely further than he had gone previously, he has continued. To as you say they all were spending more time, but the other three, continuing I and I. Haven't gotten clarification on the question of Bodycam material the way it was presented. In the Strip. Today was well. Sometimes, it's released. In the past. It's been released when there was not any other video available or when there was concerned that if we don't release it, we have a chance for some significant unrest and we might be able to get ahead of that if we released what we have. And so I guess presumably that means in this case because we had the video we did. There was less of a need to do it that to me. Still is a very different question than whether in the in the in the process. Of An officer being terminated, and in this case charged whether the Union There's a stipulation that indicates the union is required to receive. If there is body cam material, whatever body cam material is available. I would like to see that clarified. I don't know if Kessler can help us with that or maybe somebody else can because. I was pretty adamant. Barry Adamant and that's I think definitely worthy of of pursuing as well so Yeah, the the I think definitely the you could tell what the thrust was yesterday it was. I I don't think very successfully. To suddenly say well, we're about more than Bob. Kroll and If, the union is perceived as being all about Bob. Crawl or he being the voice.

"Of them are finished and I'm currently writing to others the Sedona pack and also the one. We're GONNA going to be talking about the sentinels of Savannah the sentinels of Savannah and the first book was called the Pirates Passion which I read so why don't you give a synopsis. It's so that I don't give away something. That shouldn't be given away. Okay well. There's actually a novella. That's like a Prequel just is to get you into the whole world but basically there is a pirate crew that sank outside of Savannah over two hundred years ago in the seventeen in hundreds and but the thing was that their final plunder was supposed to be the world's greatest treasure but when they took over the ship all they found was a wouldn't cup that seemed to have always have water in it and so they all drank from this without realizing that they had taken a sip zip from the holy grail so all of these men have are still alive. They're now immortal and so most of them still live in Savannah. Now they have regular the jobs they have made a replica of their ships so that they can still sale and and their captain has is still pirating but he's pirating realestate and so anyway they made the special division of the government department thirteen who deals with paranormal threats to American citizens and because they're the government they have to there's laws and the can't steal but he meets up with the immortal pirate crew and gives them the option of stealing now for the government government so they are going back to some of their piracy ways and also helping America's though it has been really wild and fund series right right so far and that is of course a romance as well as paranormal paranormal romance right there in the title so where does who the romance between so in pirates passion the romances between the ship's pilot so the guy who steers the ship and a historian story in who works for the Maritime Museum in Savannah Dr Charlotte's Claire and she has some secrets of her own and it was it was a wild old adventure of a book to write and the thing is when when you're writing romance with these big paranormal elements. It's really hard to balance the the two because you want the romance readers to get that that happy ever after that there that they want but when you who have paranormal elements a lot of times the stakes are gigantic. You know the world could end. There's lots of deaths than all that kind of thing so for me. It's always a fun juggling act to keep it even so that so that the romance is achieved but we also get a really fun adventure with lots of danger her for me as a writer. I need lots of danger. When my kids were younger and at home still they would see me sitting at the computer. Peter chomping on gum going know the story is stalled. What's happening in my I had taught my daughter was time to raise the body count because nothing gets things moving like a dead on so so anyway a lot of people die in my book says well but balancing the romance with that is always a challenge but ah in this book it was it was not so difficult because the hero and heroine had a lot of sparked instantly which is always fun. I'm for me I was going to ask you about the the that element of it because I haven't read. I've read a lot of urban fantasy and I've read a lot of paranormal stories but right right not paranormal romance and certainly that balance is different than if it were just an urban fantasy the you know in an bourbon fantasy you might have a romantic subplot but it's not quite as front and center as the romance is in pirates passion and of course there's also the difference references cover art right definitely yes. If you're writing paranormal romance the the the market is that there's some kind of man chest on there and that the Manchester in some kind of fog and that makes readers go. It's paranormal but yeah in urban and fantasy. There's almost always a big romance subplot going on but in urban fantasy there doesn't have to be happily ever after after and in Romance. That's the deal. You're making with the reader so like if it's a mystery the deal with the reader is that you will solve the crime by the end of the book and the deal with a romance is that there will be a happily ever after some how you may not know how that's GonNa Happen but somehow there will be happily ever after at the end and and so so it does make it tricky because if you don't meet that the readers are really disappointed and in urban fantasy you got a little more wiggle edel room because you can have happy for now you can have that they break up at the end but there's another book so maybe they'll get back together. You know and like sookie cookie stackhouse books. She had many happy for now with all different people so so you have a little more options is there you couldn't do that in a paranormal romance because the reader is expecting a happily ever after so in paranormal romance series. Usually you will usually see some kind of band of brothers like this. One has a pirate crew because although all those characters will be in every book I need a different character to be able to get his happily ever after and that's why we're wolves shifter's and things like that work really well and paranormal romance because do you have a whole pack and each one gets to be the hero of a book does paranormal romance draw in readers from the mortar regular fantasy side and also drawn from the romance side that might not otherwise venture into that territory. Is it a place where they come together at ecumenical sort of yeah. I think so I think so I think paranormal romances like a gateway drug to fantasy for romance readers because they get that taste of the world building and you know the the world building and thou super high stakes you know the world could end you know a city destroyed or something like that and and it's it's a whole new thing because other there's lots of genres of romance chance historical contemporary romantic suspense romantic suspense can sometimes have super high stakes also but but the FA- fantasy elements events and are all in paranormal romance so if a romance reader who may be typically reads historical stumbles across a time travel or a paranormal romance or something like that that can be there that can be their first experience sometimes with that kind of genre and can lead them him toward you know urban fantasy and and maybe even high fantasy to be fair to the cover art with the man chest there was of course for a longtime urban fantasy seemed to be distinguished by the bare midriff of the female protagonist exactly exactly and and urban fantasy for a long time it had to be the female protagonists she had to be in black leather and high heeled boots and it's like if you read the book the. You know the women are like kicking ass and I'm sure it wasn't an high heel boots but but that was what needed to be on the cover but all of that is really like marketing and bookstore. You know what what people are expecting. I think and I I don't know who came up with what those needs to be but they sure stick now. We're using parrots passion as an example of your creative process. So where did the idea. I know that's a that's a cliche. Where do your ideas come from but nevertheless where did the idea or the the seed that grew departments passion come from and is that typical of the way that your ideas come to you well actually it. Was it was really neat meet. I got invited to be part of an anthology for the romantic times. romantic times was a magazine that would have the Book Lovers Convention National Convention where people came from all over the world lots of Australian readers would come to that one and they wanted it was happening in Atlanta and so the called it moonshine and Magnolias and they wanted they picked twenty romance authors to of all all different genres of romance to write a novella that was set in the south and they need it and the only requirement was it had to include Atlanta and and I've been to Atlanta and it's not like my most favorite city but my grandmother and her family were all from Savannah and I love Savannah Savannah been there before. It's very haunted city. It's just it's so gorgeous and so much history and so I thought about Savannah. Uh If I if I said it in Savannah I could put the bad guy in Atlanta and then I'm I'm thinking about it and I've been to Savannah before and Savannah is this is all go some pirates and it was a big pirate hub back in the day you can go the pirates in restaurant it used to be a bar back then but it is still there and you can go inside and they will show you the pirate tunnels that are still there where they would get they would get you so drunk that you would pass out and they would drag you through the tunnels onto a ship and when you wake up out in the ocean your they're like well. Well your ship's doctor now so anyway you can still see those in savannah and when you walk along River Street you know they have of all the pirate stuff and so anyway. I thought well if I wrote a pirate boat but I don't want it to be historical. I wanted to the now. How can I make these pirates more role and then I thought about the Holy Grail and I thought Oh that could work and the whole thing came together when I wrote the Novella for that event offense and my agent wanted to read it so I sent it to her and she wrote me. She wrote me back she goes. I forgot to eat lunch. I was is reading the end. Please tell me the whole crew is going to get a book and let me sell the series and I was like okay so so anyway I I. I started working on you know what the crew stories would be so that I could give her a series synopsis and she sold the whole series so so I'm writing I'm finishing book for right now and there will be four more. There's eight bucks altogether so if that's kind of an unusual way for the series to come about where where have held us none of your others come from the images characters settings what what kind of get you're going to you. Have my other series came from short stories that I wrote. When I the first time I met Ray Bradbury I had only I had written my first book. I had written night Walker. Palm Raider told me you know you're going to be a writer while I was new so I didn't realize how many rejections you get. Oh my gosh Russian and I would get so close with an agent and then they would go on second read just not sure and but we'll be excited to see it on the shelves and I'm like what you think..

Lisa is a professional vocalist and has performed with San Diego Opera as well as other musical theater companies in San Diego and if you've listened to this show long enough you know that I will definitely be asking her about that. Since I do some of that stuff myself so welcome to world-shapers they said thank you. I'm glad to be here now. Usually start the show by talking about how we know each other will this is kind of a different one because basically I know you because I was on your show so right yeah you've been on you've been on book lights a couple of times and we always have such a great time plus. We have the musical background so I feel like we already know each other. We will talk a little bit about booklets later on to get a chance to talk about that. I think I hear cats in the background. Yes sorry my cat never comes in in here but she just decided to come in and beyond the radio so sorry about that folks minds minds asleep somewhere he might join in as well so here the other their cat and they'll have a conversation. I think it was my second interview with John Sculley. They were cats in the background so it's kind of a world-shapers traditions good Ed. Maybe my cat knew that. I wasn't aware he's probably a long time probably a longtime listener well. They'll start by taking you back. I always say this. It's kind of appropriate considering the book that we're going to be focusing on pirates fashion. Take you back into the midst of time but perhaps quite quite not as far back as the eighteenth century had to find out with you of became well first of all where you were born where you grew up and then how you became interested in writing and specifically quickly in writing tales of the paranormal in the fantastic well it's kind of an interesting story because it sort of paranormal and I promise that it's true uh-huh I grew up in San Diego and after I graduated high school I got into our family business we made hospital window blinds and so I've traveled a lot for trade shows and one of those trade shows took me to New Orleans and some background I sang opera and band musical theater that was music was might focal point but I always wrote for fun and I was madly in love with Anne Rice's vampire chronicles nickels but anyone who was a fan back in the nineties it took a year and a half for another book to come out and way back in the day of the Internet. When there were member you net groups and things like that there was an rice one and I met some other women there we started and our own yahoo group to write our own vampires while we would wait for the next vampire book so I probably did that. I would write every night my own vampires empires just for fun probably for like eight years never thought about publishing anything but I have a trade show in New Orleans and so since I was in New Orleans I had to get my palm read and the palm reader gave me the reading. It seemed pretty right on and then as we were leaving. She stopped me at the door and said I can. I ask you something and I said sure and she said are you a writer and I said No. I saw window shades then and I thought about it and I said well I I write for fun every night and she smiled and said you're going to be a famous writer. Someday and I was like well and my I brain would not let it go and by the time I got back to the airport I had written out a plot outline for my first book night Walker occur which was my in vampires in San Diego anyway very cool book but it took me a really long time to get that published but I wrote in six months and I had no idea that all those years I had been practising. I I got to meet Ray Bradbury a couple times before he passed away and I and he was he always believed that you had to write somewhere around eight hundred thousand words of crap before you became a storyteller and I never knew that that was what I was doing. I filled up a whole hard drive with text documents of of my vampires and never with any the inkling that I would publish it if I hadn't seen that palm reader. I don't know that I ever would have gotten that nudge to to try and get published and then I wrote short stories his that was where immortal beloved came from because I thought I'm not sure I'm a good writer. I've just been writing for fun so I wrote a bunch short stories and I got five of them published in publications on I thought okay so I'm not horrible and I went on on from there but without that palm reader in New Orleans. I it just wasn't on my radar. I was so busy singing and working the writing was just for fun on so she really changed the course of my life that day unexpected. It was very strange. Now I write full-time so avenue so you said that you've always written did you. Did you actually start as a kid. many many of US writers do start whenever we're quite young yeah yeah I did. I did right when I was a kid but I never thought I was going to be a writer rider. I wrote my first book in Sixth Grade they actually bound and published it for me in the school library and thankfully when they redid the school library somebody on the school board found me and brought my book back it was called wonder some Unicorn Creek it was all of like twenty pages but that was my first book going to say fortunately they threw out when they know I got that wonderful book back but but I never her. I always wrote but I didn't have that. you know. I I just never realised I was going to be a novelist that was never on my radar until all New Orleans. So when did the music come in music has always been my. I love that was my My Dad was a musician -sition and as soon as I got to junior high I was in choir and I had all the Solos in high school and and right out a high school I was taking private voice lessons and getting in San Diego Comic Opera Lyric Opera and stuff like that it was just music has always spend my first my first love and passion and I still I still have a church job so I still do sing every week and that was really where my focus was and I wrote but but during all of that I was writing every night I was building in good skills for becoming becoming a writer without any idea that I was ever going to be one so it's very very odd so you mentioned that you started with short stories. where is immortal beloved published. I was the one that was a finalist for Bam stoker. Where did it Fall News v one or was it an earlier winner. At what was it about because I'm not familiar with the story. Okay immortal beloved was has I was trying to write some short stories that I could try to get published Z. Because I really had no concept of by was a good storyteller or not but I had had the idea about it because I'm very musical I had the idea about Beethoven and nobody has figured figured out you know his who his immortal beloved was and I was really into writing vampires so I thought what if Beethoven's wins immortal beloved really was immortal and what if it had to be a secret because he was a man and so anyway the story takes place place today but the vampire is hearing a child prodigy playing the Moonlight Sonata and he's wondering if it's Beethoven Token a really cool story and I wrote it as an experiment I wrote it while I was listening to the Moonlight Sonata over and over and it really has has like three different acts in the Moonlight Sonata and so the story kind of follows that that same kind of structure and it got. It's been republished quite a few times. it's in an anthology. That's out right. Now called came. Look it up dead souls. That's when it's gone. It's a paperback anthology called dead souls reprinted in that right now but it was it was a fabulous experiment and the story came out really while I was really proud of it did my research and I felt like at the end. Maybe Beethoven was a love with a male vampire. Movie called Immortal Beloved of course did not have a vampire also also dealing with that question of exactly beloved was and somebody recently they found some DNA or something I don't know but I I saw it pop up again recently and they still don't know but but they think they're closer to figuring it out. I don't know it's a great mystery. Though so talking about Oh to immortal beloved and melts are going to get into your research because obviously there were some involved there when we talk about the book So why don't we start talking about the book now you've written books. How many series do you have at this point. I have five series so far.
