Fashion & Film
"Episode actually has been on my mind since our very first season and it combines both my passion and my career because today we talk about fashion and film and we actually thought this was a particularly fitting episode with which to launch season three seeing as it's February. WNYC which is an eventful month for fashion in film. We are currently in the midst of course of the International Fashion Week Circuit and the Ninety Second Academy Awards Air. Just this is past Sunday February ninth. Not that I've seen many of the Oscar contenders this year. But let's be honest. I mainly tune in to see what everyone is wearing. Yes exactly the same. Although I did watch rock man last night which I know I loved. You're so so on costumes. Were amazing. Customer agree on that yet and we actually got to see a couple of them in in person when we were in L. A.. Recently which was very cool but the Oscars is definitely one of fashion industries. Highlights of the year. You know. I think it's safe to say that. What celebrities as where to this star centered? Event is just as exciting as the awards. Show itself and I'm sure many of our listeners will be joining us in watching the pre show coverage where where we will get an up close and personal look at all the glamour shirt to be on display on this year's red carpets and speaking of red carpet April you and I both. It's had our very first red carpet experience last month when we attended the iheartradio podcast awards. Yes and I will have to. I have to say getting ready for that stuff. Takes a really long time. I had no idea. We're inheriting makeup literally. Our it was very fun. Yeah it it was very fun so you're going to hear a little bit more on our first fashion history mystery of the season where we talk about all things red carpet including our favorite picks from this year's red carpet and an interview with Bronwyn cosgrave. Who is the author of the book made for each other which is an in-depth behind the scenes? Look at the history the of red carpet fashion so the Academy Awards dates back all the way to the nineteen twenties but the first films are being made as far back as the eighteen ninety s so the movies being produced ladies for over one hundred and twenty years you know. I think we should probably preface this episode by saying this is only intended as an overview of very huge topic like Jain enormous topic. Yeah I mean it's so big that we've chosen to focus almost entirely on the relationship between fashion as as it relates to American Hollywood films and for the most part I mean there will be a few exceptions and even by narrowing our discussion. There are still so many fascinating winning stories and players involved with a subject that it is impossible to cover them all in one episode. And that is why we are bringing you to yes and as you said. Casas is a huge topic and there are many different angles which we could look at the intersections of fashion and film. Historically of course the most obvious one is the depiction of fashion in film and that is fashionable clothing as costume worn by characters in support of the visual narrative of any given plot and this fashionable clothing can be worn both in contemporary films. Those intended to be set within the time in which their audience are living now currently when interviewing them and also period films film set in the past so clothing and fashionable clothing at that is one of the most vital production elements in selling link any given period in history it is very central to the quote unquote look of a specific time and place and we have to give many a costume designer props further further historical accuracy over the years but April. I think you would agree that present day fashion is a pretty powerful force and even the best designers have been guilty of implementing unconsciously or not contemporary beauty and fashion aesthetics into their period costumes. So if you look at any number of the westerns from the nineteen sixties for instance instance set in the late nineteenth century. But I can't even tell you how many heating ladies in these films are costumed with bouffant hairstyles eyeliner. They're so good. You know not to mention that these electric colors of their bustle gowns so fashion in film and we're using the term film today because while the majority of the movies were talking about where filmed on film so fashion and film have been inextricably linked since the earliest days of cinema. The I motion picture films were produced at the end of the nineteenth century by the first decade of the twentieth film production had fast evolved into a mass entertainment industry tree. Hollywood obviously as we all know in Los Angeles California was epicenter and the home to over seventy studios and counting by nineteen fourteen and prior to the advent of film. Theatre was a hugely popular form of spectator entertainment. And it was thanks to this medium that that female audiences had long been accustomed to viewing their favorite theater actresses and the clothes they wore as the latest word and chic and and actresses wore high fashion on an off stage and we'll heralded as fashion icons in newspapers. Fashion Magazines and film would prove no different different with its bevy of Silverscreen starlets who would capture the admiration of millions of women audience goers all across the country so with the film industry fast on the rise in the early twentieth century. We see the debut of the first film Fan Magazines such as photo play and Motion Picture magazine. And both of these magazines presented actresses as this fashion trendsetters. And you WANNA go down a rabbit hole. You can go to media history project dot org forward slash fan magazines because they have a huge archive five of keyword searchable magazines on there. So have a blast so far but it will it will take up an entire afternoon. Photo play even had a regular column dedicated to fashion which often featured full-body photographs of actresses so as to best display their entire gowns printed in black can white though. These photographs were accompanied by text. That really detailed the gowns color and fabric for the enquiring reader actress Norma talmadge was featured so often in the fashion section in a photo play that she was even named fashion editor for a short time in nineteen twenty by emphasizing the dress and appearance of these early film stars. These he's magazines played a pivotal role in establishing film actresses as fashion icons. But you may be wondering who was dressing them today. We're all accustomed to the important role the costume designer and Costume Department and Film and Television Production. Obviously what would Miss Marvelous. Mrs Mazel be without Donna and her talented team of assistance. Cutters fitters Taylor shoppers. dyers agers the list. There are a lot the people helping out on those productions. Let's just say Oh. Yeah but actually in the earliest days of cinema. There was no such thing as a costume designer and thus no costume department dedicated educating to produce in costumes for a specific movie so according to costume designer and historian Deborah Landis in her book dressed century of Hollywood costume design. She's actually written quite extensively on the history of Hollywood design. So you're going to hear her name. Come up quite a bit so according to Deborah Producer Adolph Zuqar and director. D W Griffith were among the first to recognize the importance of and need for the professional costume designer. And this was in the nineteen ten's but we still do not see standardization cassation of the costume designer and department until the nineteen twenties so prior to this actors and actresses were largely expected to provide their own wardrobes for contemporary foams. With many I mean those who could actually afford it. I suppose many of these people work directly with their favorite fashion designers to create their specific onscreen. Looks for instance. Paul Poiret as you all know who we adore and love. He designed the period costumes for acclaimed actress. Sarah Bernhardt in the nineteen twelve French film. The loves of Queen Queen Elizabeth. It does not surprise us at all. That far was among the very first fashion designers to embrace the new medium of film as a way to extend. His influence is an advertise his brand although he would never admit it. Of course big neither would contemporary lady Lucille Duff Gordon. Who designed the gallons for the leading ladies for over twenty films between Nineteen Fourteen and nineteen twenty two starting with the perils of Pauline starring? Pearl White I love that AH film And in April nineteen eighteen vote dedicated to page spread to Lucille designs for actress Clara Campbell Young and the Nineteen nineteen eighteen film. The reason why which was written by Lucille sister the famed novelist turned screenwriter. Eleanor Glynn thanks to there's well known collaborations nations. I mean. Is it any wonder that Motion Picture magazine declared that quote motion picture actresses where the latest modes and they declared this in its September nineteen fourteen issue. The article goes on to say that quote women revel in the style of gown much better in the picture show than she can in the pages of some fashion journal but this brings up a very very interesting point April because we all know how quickly fashion can change and what was in fashion when you're designing and then shooting a film while it might have changed I by the time. The film was released six months to a year later. Case in point Lucille's designs for Clara in the reason why might have been presented by vogue as the latest fashions nineteen eighteen. But I know at least one of those designs came straight from her nineteen seventeen collections. Clair West one of the very first screen credited costume designers address address. This very issue in an interview with women's wear daily in December nineteen nineteen according to her fashionable film costumes reproduced thanks to new fashion forecasting which is fascinating. She goes on to say quote. It is particularly difficult to dress characters for the screen when one considers that the close not only must be up to date but they must be several months head of style and you know by designing for the future Claire and other costume designers designers of this time really consider themselves both costume and fashion desires case in point one month prior women's wear daily had interviewed West about the influence silence of Hollywood on fashion in an article titled Motion Pictures To Create New Fashion Center and at the time West was under a seven year contract with the picture and distribution distrubution company. lasky famous players company. Soon to be known as a name. Some of you may recognize paramount pictures quote as for the role which motion pictures plays plays and fashion resort. In Miss West opinion there is no limit West oversaw the designing and making of costumes for the entire film company. So this is no oh small order and she did this in a three story building devoted entirely to costume production just to give you an idea of the size of this costume. Department West fulltime fulltime team consisted of sixty five women including five flower makers ten designers. Numerous seamstresses to Taylor's staff hairdressers. There's a number of assistance quote in this way said West. We have the ideal conditions under which fashions should be created and created. Is the keyword right here because they were not buying you know off the rat clothing cast for both period and contemporary films. The majority of the clothes seen on the stars in Hollywood films were produced made to measure for them in

All right I'm going to blast off some questions real quick all right. Don't think too hard to give me. What pops in your head okay. How many pairs of sunglasses do you bring on a trip to? What's your favorite ethnic cuisine? Anything Asian literally any kind of Asian. You have a favorite Japanese Thai Time you're stuck on an island for the rest of your life but you get to pick the island. Which island do pick Santa rainy but you can only stay on center.

I couldn't cancel the trip to go out downtown Paul Again. I have an eye patch. And that's funny. You say that because very few people asked me about I think it really are just polite. Yeah they're they're more polite in the South Kinda like oh he's giving me the benefit of this guy didn't get some but scientific terms all right. That's all I have for you but I just wanted to see if you had any final thoughts or anyone listening. Why travel is important and meaningful to you. But just why would you encourage people to travel? I would encourage everyone to travel for the classic reason of learning about other cultures. You know seeing how people live. I think there's this chasm in two thousand nineteen we are here comfortably in your guest bedroom making a podcast and then at the same time. There's people facing genocide at oppression and slavery still. How is this happening so I think go out and see how people are living but really why I like to travel is because I learned so much about myself the things that move me the things that I like like can. I just live out of a backpack for ten days and travel across three countries in Europe. Yes you can't no you can't you know? Can I make it to my airplane on time because we have to get up at four thirty in the morning? I mean it pushes you to these kind of strange limits and a place that you don't know and there's no family to fall back on you don't know the language I mean it forces you to talk to people and communicate in weird ways and eat weird stuff and it just gets out of your comfort zone so just like travel to learn about yourself. That's awesome advice a great way to end this. Thank you so much to my guests this week. Alicia Landis if you haven't yet go out and get yourself some liquid. Iv It's a wonderful.

"Travelers in experts of all kinds to candidly and unapologetically discuss any and everything about travel. This week's guest is Alicia. Landis Alicia welcome thanks for having me. Alicia is currently the office manager at liquid H Q in El Segundo California. But we're GONNA talk more about her former job as sales coordinator for Ama- waterways which is a river cruise lines that correct not as it. Let's dive in. How'd you get into working travel in the first place? I got lucky travel kind of found me. I was doing a lot of different sales gigs in different industries. And I knew a Gal who was working for a temp agency and I reached out and I said carry. You need to find me a job. I need something that I'm a little bit more passionate about. And she said Great Abba Company for you. It's a river cruise company and I thought I don't want to work on a ship and all right. I'm going to go work on a cruise ship and thought well I'll go and I'll interview and it'll be good interview experience and when I got there I fell in love with the VP of reservations. Which was the department. I was GonNa start at and then like halfway through the interview. I suddenly really wanted the job so now I'm like. Oh my God I gotta get it together and start you know really trying and luckily I got the position. I started in reservations. I worked there for about nine months before I got promoted to the sales department and then just kind of worked my way up to where I was essentially managing an outside sales team of twenty plus people across the US and Canada. And where did they do? These river cruises so the river cruises took place in Europe Southeast Asia and Africa all of our clientele however came from the US and Canada and various parts around the world but All of our sales team was working to get U S and Canadian citizens to fly over and get on these European River cruise and correct me if I'm wrong but you got to go out and sample these trips right. But in order to sell it you have to know their experiences. Yep that's right so a least once a year I would get out and do some different itineraries so you could go for Amsterdam and you know into Germany or Bucharest and Budapest. So you could go everywhere so. They're kind of all along the Rhine and the Danube down to France and the scene and the Rhone the all of them so it was great and then Southeast Asia is probably my favorite agent airy it was really cool. It was a really magical experience and kind of heightened my already existing love for travel and then put it into a corporate world so. I got to kind of work and travel. It was really awesome. Had done much world travel before that job I had my family is really travel centric so with my parents. I had done quite a bit of traveling and my parents my two younger sisters and they would just kind of what at times felt like like dragging us across the world with them until finally they're like forget this relieving you at home and then once they left us out we realized how much we really missed it and loved it so then of course for like begging to go back with them so we had been to a handful of countries. France Australia Germany Greece Italy New Zealand. We had done a quite a few countries kind of as a family which isn't always the funnest way to travel but my family got really good at it and we all became released great travelers. So yeah it's really fun to travel with them that's awesome. Do you have a favorite person to travel with or favorite group of people? Would you throw your family up there or yeah I would definitely throw my family up there? We can live out of a backpack. We can hustle through airports Nobody has an overwhelming desire to control the trip We all eat anything. I hate picky eaters. I hate too much pickiness in general A little bit of flow like I need. Someone's just kind of be into everything all the time. Which is I know a tall order but my family is really great. Like we're GONNA say yes to everything so yes. People in general are great travelers. So my family is one. My boyfriend is a fantastic traveller. He himself has been many many places. And so when we met up we individually had already been to so many countries so it's no surprise that only a few years in we've already been to seven or eight countries together and again just living in the backpack ready for anything good to go. There's nothing scary and So yeah fearless. People people say yes to everything. An- general those those will be good. Travels you kind of know like if you are willing to do a a weekend trip with somebody you kind of get a feel for how they pack in function outside of their comfort zone and then you can figure out. We're GONNA take this across the pond. Or what is that your preferred method of traveling. This sort of laws airfare out of the backpack. Let's see what I get into this That's a great question. I love to travel very loosey. Goosey and travel by myself which I've done quite a bit and I recommend everyone do it. It's pretty like I have my hotel you know set but then outside of that. I'm like we're just GONNA walk around and get a map and like figure it out. What I like about traveling with. My boyfriend is that he is very much a planner. So I can still live in my magical land of not knowing what's happening and then he just knows what's happening so it's all still a great surprise to me. Find a balance between exact day tinder area and just winging it or discovering something together. Yeah yeah absolutely yes. The balance is great but the the looseness of IT IS I. The surprise is kind of what I always look for. So as long as he just doesn't tell me the plans. It's all surprise. That's one way of looking at it. So circling back. Working in travel isn't the same as doing it for leisure. What were some of the big challenges of working in the Travel Industry One of the biggest annoyances I had I would say when I was traveling on this river cruise lines. I was typically traveling with a lot of travel agents so believe it or not they still exist out there in the world. It's more common than I thought I had a friend. Tell me this not terribly long ago and I was floored that that was still a profession. I think there are enough working professionals and people or just people that don't like the planet right. There's a lot of things that go into it. Yep Oh yeah. Lots of things are going to travel especially traveling abroad. Which was what we were one hundred percent doing right taking. Us and Canadian citizens sending them abroad. And that's a little scary to people especially the demographic that is still using travel agents which is kind of like that sixty five plus which was our demographic because River Cruise. Traveling is not cheap. Yeah they're not looking for third year old women to get on these cruise boats. They're looking for sixty five. Plus couples retired. And then you know groups and things like that so Working travel obviously fantastic firmly reasons when you're traveling for Work and you're on a boat with a bunch of people but really only one hundred and fifty people so within a few days. Everyone knows exactly who I am. I'm thirty years younger intimate exactly so it feels like a lot but then the you know everybody's name the second day so it's a lot of Alicia. I think the shower heads were just a little more. Well maybe if we just did this so you become the human suggestion box bounce board exactly exactly and knowing how much thought and processing things like we build all our ships from scratch. The owner of the waterways Rudi Schreiner Amazing Man. They come the the godfather of River Kersey and he really like brought the river cruising up to what it is now also an architect so he would build all the ships from his visions and every detail was just meticulous. So anytime somebody had like. Oh here's a nice suggestion of what you can do. I'm thinking there. We've probably thought of it and there's a reason why we didn't do it that way but just kind of being that human soundboard It takes away from your trip. Although you're not really supposed to be there having the time of your life because you're working so really it's my job was to make sure that they felt heard and they were having a good time Some of them were not bad ideas. but you are just there to they wanNA critique the ship that should be perfect. Yeah that segues. Good into my next question which people that aren't like you. That liked to fly by the seat of their pants People love to complain when someone else plans and trip for them are there. There's an itinerary is real easy to nick and say I don't like that. That should be better. Were the types of complaints from actual people that did the trips. Yeah what were they nitpicking? Man Some funny ones would be like the weather something that of course we can't control so many questions about the weather all the time even pre planning in the months leading up to it. And you're like I mean I can google the weather history but like what do I know? I know as much as the weatherman knows like fingers crossed hoping that his reports are right. So I'm the weather is a big one which I thought was funny one. That was pretty valid. Was We did have an itinerary. You could do this tour at this time in the semi new. It's very scheduled it's just like cruising so One complaint or Suggestion that I heard often was. Somebody wanted to go to the bread making tour but they also wanted to do the bike tour and they're at the same time knocking the way you've scheduled the the optional activities and things. They want to be able to do everything so we wanted to have. Lots of options for people and as big as the buffet. Like that is the way you can travel like. Here's so many things you can do these these little towns but it's never good enough. Everybody wants to do everything. And sometimes you have to pick and choose So the timing which is actually my biggest complaint about cruising is like. I don't want to eat at this time. I want to eat. What I want to eat is was oftentimes. There's too but they wanted to ride bikes and I just want to eat. Is it the same as a big cruise ship with sort of this endless buffets stuff and you can always get a drink you can always get a snack There's always something out which then of course you're just going to eat it so Yeah just like any other cruise line. You're gonNA feel full all the time The food is going to be a million times better than something you're GonNa get on a larger OCEAN LINER CARNIVAL. Few notches above you and then take it to Europe and put a fancy chef hat on it so yeah so. The food is phenomenal tons of food. All the I actually never heard a complaint about the food which was great and because it is an older demographic we had lots of compliments on the soups. Oh yes this and Like a fan favorite all the suits come back and enjoy your mentor. Shoe today. Gertrude it is Keller.

From the book where the narrator is describing the differences between how the FBI and the CIA approach this problem of terrorism. After nine eleven it became conventional Washington wisdom that the people who hated America would no longer express their feelings just by blowing up our embassies in the Middle East and Africa and that the FBI needed to take on more counterterrorism and intelligence responsibilities the problem with the FBI was they wanted wanted to do things. Covert agencies had long done but with a bias toward prosecution. The Hoover building was full of people who like to arrest. Indict and convict Langley was different. The CIA traded in information but their trade was secrets. Not Justice they use secrets to compromise agents who were by definition liars and who in intern provided more secrets if the CIA discovered that Mr bad guy would like to harm America they collected information about Mr Bad guy.

"College to move in that direction and be able to offer oil companies and others away to look at this larger picture of geo-strategy just to sort of pitcher. I've been painting for you in the last conversation and I think it's very important. It's hard to politically to manage it because we're sitting in an oil state. The thought that we would hire somebody that would criticize big oil. I think a lot of our donors would be look frown upon on the other hand a lot of the oil accompanies understand that all this alternatives have to come in and that they need to sit down and think about it in intelligent ways and and get some good academic advice advice but you have to tread a delicately between you know a sort of young people like the Gret as of this world who may take on much to anti big oil outlook on the world and the oil companies which can often shoot themselves in the foot by just being obstructionist actionist and and that's that's the challenge is how to find a dialogue that can bring both sides this debate to the table to to really air important important decisions that America has to make over the next few decades and the world yeah well. Let me know when you guys start taking applications as long as I get free tickets to every game every football game about through my hanging down here soon yeah would love to be down there again soon just last question where where are we headed. I think that there's a lot of people who would like to give their two cents as to where things are going both in the Middle East and the United States relative to oil markets but just the geopolitical go situation. I I'd love to get your thoughts on just where you think we're headed the big picture you know. I I hope I think that only league governments can pull back from what I see as a headlong rush towards global warming and it's going to require breaking some real eggs eggs and that is going to require governments to get behind it in a fairly radical way. I believe that things are changing so rapidly. If if you you read about ice melts rising temperatures in the ocean and so forth it's quite scary very concerning and I think we need to move in that direction. We're not doing it now. I understand that it's going to cause a lot of pain to a lot of industries because it means tons more regulation you know all these things that are are painful and and change who gets to make money so but I think that's an important thing. It's it's a con us. The international community has to do what it can and we all need to change our habits which is so difficult to do yeah yeah thank you very much. Dr Landis. I really do appreciate you taking the time to speak with me once again and talk about some really critical issues that are affecting well that could affect everyone everyone across the globe especially higher oil prices and potentially war and more conflict in the Middle East so to get your insight is is always extremely valuable and I really appreciate you taking the time..

I'm super honored to have Dr Joshua Landis back on the program to talk about the recent developments in the Middle East now. If you haven't listened to part one of this really short series I highly encourage you to do so and the first part of this series I talked talked to Mike Rothman so that's episode thirty eight and Mike Describes some of the important dynamics within the global oil market so we're talking about oil oil supply demand and well an extremely important aspect of oil markets which is spare capacity. It's a really interesting conversation and this conversation with Dr. Landis is highly complimentary because in it we talk about the geopolitical backdrop and some of the really important reasons sends why we saw what we saw back on September fourteenth when at least ten drones were flown into the largest oil processing facility in the world and that's the ABC cake processing facility and Saudi Arabia. Mike Rothman described APP cake is one of the most important pieces of real estate that you've never really heard of and this episode you get to hear Dr Landis describe the significance of ABC Ache and well the significance of the oil industry for Saudi Arabia and how that fits into the geopolitical puzzle that is the Middle East because it really is a puzzle before you get to the interview.

Vineyards Facing An Insect Invasion May Turn To Aliens For Help
"Bug recently arrived from China is munching its way across eastern Pennsylvania from there. It's poised to spread across much of the country. Killing trees and grapevines finds so scientists are considering something drastic importing other insects the bugs natural enemies from the place it came from NPR's. Dan Charles has the story. I was walking around the park near Allentown Pennsylvania and I didn't even notice the bugs at first then heather leach arrived the insect expert Berg from Penn state but if you take under these leaves sure enough they're climbing up underneath the ivy and then I realized they're all over. This tree spotted lantern flies. A marching column of gray bugs each one about an inch long black spots on their wings sucking sap from the tree. They're kind of ugly especially. When there's thousands of them you'll start to poke at them and you'll see how strong hopper there you see that they've just take off could be entertaining. You see a lot of kids running around playing with them trying to stomp on them spotted lantern flies. I showed up in the United States five years ago right here in Berks County. Nobody knows exactly how some eggs probably hitched a ride on shipping containers across the specific. Now there are hordes of spreading across Pennsylvania and beyond chances are they'll eventually reach most of the country. It's an insect that lays its eggs on on anything including things that get transported hops onto vehicles and can hold on. They don't seem to have any natural enemies here but they found lots of trees with sapped that they like. They've got a buffet out here if they can eat all of these plants and they don't have anything that's down so they're having a good time. They're having a party right. Heather Leach gets panicked calls for people with swarms of lantern flies on their houses or their trees. She tells them don't freak out. These bugs won't bite or sting but but they're not a joke either they really can destroy fix and the people who are seeing this first our vineyard owners like John. Landis vine crest winery west of Allentown uh-huh going. Landis is pressing grapes smiling. Harvest is a good time. He says but then I asked him about the Lantern Flies Anthony Turns series. We've never had a situation like this and forty years. If you start to decimate your vineyard we can cause people to go out of the wiring business. It's actually actually killed funds. Oh yeah definitely kills wise. We walk out into the Vineyard and sure enough. The section next to the woods is infested with lantern flies a lot of vines. It's our dead already. From last year's attack we had lantern pipe just kind of pouring out of these trees last year invading this area here and then down on this hill vineyard owners can spray insecticides protect their crop but that's costly and it can kill helpful insects like bees and ladybugs also it doesn't help with the bigger problem. The damage lantern flies can cause to whole ecosystems leach scientists or worried. They might kill off some trees in forests were also starting to see early indications of displacement of other insects and as a result displacement of birds as well but maybe she says if the problem came from China the solution Russian could to you see back in China. The lantern fly has natural enemies that hold it in check tiny wasps so small you can barely see them scientists from the US this department of Agriculture have brought two kinds of these wasps to the United States. They're under quarantine and a couple of USDA labs like the beneficial insect introduction laugh in Newark Delaware to USDA scientists. Amanda Stout and Kim homer lead the way into the quarantine room. We're all suited up in white overalls head to toe now. Next door is high security this quarantine zone. It's filled with these environmental chambers. They look like big refrigerators. homer opens opens one up and points me towards something in sealed containers. There's a little white thing about a quarter of an inch long with a dark in there that just the cocoon. This is one stage in the life cycle of a lantern flight killing wasp. The wasp lays eggs inside baby spotted lantern flies called nymphs the eggs hatch into larvae that feet on the nips and kilter so maybe they could do this outside. The lab in Pennsylvania's forests sounds kind of crazy releasing an invader to fight another invader but homer says really it could work. There are many many examples of successful and safe introduction of natural enemies. He says it's best when the natural enemies a specialist when it only tax invasive species you're trying to control so now he's trying to figure out whether these wasps only lay their eggs in lantern flies or if they attack. North America's native insects to getting answers. We'll take years in the meantime. The lantern flies will keep on moving. Dan Charles N._p._R. News.

"The the optimism in the in the eagles Landis turning camp will it officially be the day of a a practice beginning about I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to having a little football back in our lives once again I eight eight eight seven two nine ninety four ninety four and in this is I I don't know really how to feel in particular is now this is the second day in a row if you missed it for any reason Ben Simmons released some nicely edited cut up footage yesterday which it looked like he was playing against some guys that are gonna be bagging groceries or are bagging groceries or something of that affects the show live like Hey I'm out here we're gonna jump shot from three point land from you know mid range jumpers to all that and and people got really really really excited about it and I'm just sitting here going like I don't really care like I I need you to do this in the game yes in my happy that you're working on great but I'm not gonna buy in to Ben Simmons now has this jump shot them ready to rock and roll and then tonight the merging the little bit is now the second the second day in a row there's footage from Ben Simmons cutting out again cut up the same way where it is just showing you the the positive highlights and why would you show anything negative there's no reason to do that it only only hurts you but this time this time Ben Simmons is doing fade away turnaround jumpers I guess Devin Booker who is an NBA player was not good at playing defense but it's still an NBA player in its point guard versus point guard not there is a a humongous difference in being in height between Booker and Ben Simmons and it and it got me a little bit like okay all right if this is the Ben Simmons that we are kind of expecting this season and he's kind of coming to fruition now I'm getting a little more excited about it because as a six ten point guard to be able to shoot over guys who are probably normally around six six or six five six eight that is a is a big big big time advantage however is in the one I'm I'm not gonna get like fully invested because I I feel like there is this part of of Sixers fandom which is going to react to it and and go crazy over it almost not in terms of player but in the same way that we are we are more kill fold seeing Ben Simmons shot like an all pro in a potential all star eccentric centric server right this is doesn't anybody find it extremely odd that we are all rooting for a guy who is I believe is going to get there anyway in terms of arrival you know to this is the big time generational talent if he develops that shot and whatever but don't we think it's a little ridiculous that we are begging and pleading for a guy and this is this is not an anti Simmons because I love Ben Simmons but it's still kind of Riddick inflict fully ridiculous that we are begging somebody to just have a jump shot in the office like yes of course is in in this is supposed to be part of your game like you know kind of coming in here and I I've heard all those things before and I just said look it's it's not to worry I'm trusting the process I understand that you know we're Ben Simmons is that in this game I think it's under rated in terms of what he's able to do right now without the jump shot but it's not at a generational standpoint were you know his the use of a billion make passes even though we shown flashes of it is that the the best in the league and the way that he attacks Elaine is the best in the league and we all know that we all know that there's there's a point to Ben Simmons game where it's going to continue to grow and grow and grow and everybody kind of brings up Yanis when this discussion happens on like well you gave him time you know he would get it took until his six year old Brandon developers shut until X. Y. Z. and there's all this and all of those things are true in Ben Simmons being able to get to that point when he's twenty eight I'm sure is going to be there but it's different now and that's the reality we have to face with the Sixers the because you can say all of that and and and fully have full confidence just like I do in Ben Simmons being able to get to that jump shot but this is not how the Sixers or made up right now so unfairly or not gets excited as you want it is not optimistic as you want as the Ben Simmons footage comes out but the honest reality is bench Simmons has to shoot he and it has to be this year and and I like that we are seeing some of these things go along but it's not gonna matter unless you've gotten may and June jumpers falling and that is the most important point of everybody knows that was like yes I understand I know John I I you know why why you bashing in and being the fun police here because it's not what I exactly signed up for at the beginning of this thing and al Horford's doesn't have time for Ben Simmons to develop a jumper and to a point neither does do well and be like it has to be now and later so in my excited that these things are happening absolutely but I can also wrap my mind around this and go man this is absolutely ridiculous that we are asking a guy to shoot a basketball like I finally come full circle around to it after being you know so defensive towards Benson is developing that shot from a lot of guys that I just believe were anti process or did like kinky or manual of course Howard Eskin is leaving the Jay Adams name every time that tweets about him and and this is this is all a part of that unfortunately they're right they're right yeah and and it is it's time that we all kind of recognize that in it's not a matter of all you don't believe in Ben Simmons or you don't you don't think that he's going to develop this thing yes I do I and then there is no other summer during the time that he's been there and I'm sure he hasn't been doing this stuff in the same way it's got to be able to transfer over and be confident enough to to do it during games and it's not a ton to ask in terms of you know I don't need five three pointers from any of my the two maybe three like at least go in it and challenge these guys in the same with listen the the turnaround fade away so they're fantastic they're awesome and even some of the midrange jumpers in these clips are really eye opening it should make you very optimistic but it has to happen and I need to see it in October I need to see it almost instantly that he's willing to go and do these things and everything that he has been learning or training on or whatever is going to happen and I still feel that like I don't know for some reason that it's just not gonna happen you know and M. M. paying a guy what you've paid him to go and do to eventually get to there ma'am it starts to look a little more like a gamble and keep coming back to this in its I I don't really know where the parallels are but sometimes not all the time but sometimes I feel like we talk about the Sixers team like we talk about to tell you the moves that he made in two thousand and fifteen and that's not a shot at Elton brand and that's not a shot as anybody else but there's just like this crescendo that we went into in this offseason and said run a background about running back Jimmy Butler is going to be here J. J. Redick's gonna be here surround Benson was shooters and then that changed in an instant the moment that you knew that Hey Jimmy Butler action just wants to go to Miami it will you can now Richard sincere now al Horford and now everybody thinks of this team is going to just run over the east and I'm just I'm so much more reserved the end a lot of optimistic Sixers fans on this because what if he doesn't shoot you know they're still that over it in and it is not a a criticism towards his worth it work ethic like he's one of the hardest working guys in the gym anybody will tell you that I think he still can be extremely valuable even without a jumper or a three point shot but he's going to have to be on a nother planet in terms of what he does right now if you can't give me that you need to be the league's best NBA passer you need to be able to create tons from the top of the key from the point from down low you need to be so distracting in a pick and roll game with al Horford that nobody wants to touch you so it's it's either going to be that in I'm fine with doubling and tripling down on what Ben Simmons can do right now and just forgetting about the jumper but the fact that this is now rolling out and he's displaying it for the first time should give you optimism because I don't think that this is you know he kind of understands the environment now too in the same way and it's not unfair to ask at this point like it's your three frontier one it's different if you're too it's different and now the team is is a that's make up is completely different from what we all envisioned it was gonna be so he has to do it now in the one positive takeaway that I will say yet that the it just like I'm saying the fact that he's showing us this gives me a lot of positivity that it will happen yeah in the regular season but I I I am still not fully on board I don't know why you know there's a it maybe because my feelings are gonna be hurt like I have no idea it's it's that Philadelphia thing the kind of just creeps up in your body and your soul sometimes it just goes Hey man don't buy into it and it's the same kind of tingles that a lot of people got wood chip Kelly and I was in the same bubble because I loved him Bradford and I was dead wrong about that I hope I'm dead wrong about this too but for some reason I just feel like it's not gonna happen era and I hope to god that it does because Ben Simmons having a a jump shot will make me burn my house down and cook on the flames until it goes out because then I'll start buying into everything that everyone is saying about the Sixers team eight eight eight seven two nine ninety.

What makes Mike particularly specials diversity of his experience and depth of his resume at such a young age considering the fact the Mike is only in his mid thirties list is impressive and includes two years volunteering in Honduras with the Peace Corps adult jd and master's degree in international political economy and development a state appellate court clerkship a federal District Court clerkship two and a half years as litigation associate at a large New Jersey law firm and then of course his current role as litigation director of perk at per Mike's job involves taking a macro view of issues facing the general public most often from a consumer perspective while most consumer rights attorneys are focusing on the individual client cases and relationships Mike is looking for broad patterns where impact litigation can be achieved per kg pursues its own cases but also plays an active role supporting a network of nonprofit organizations across the country that are pursuing consumer protection cases and he says in the interview is always looking to broaden partnerships with private attorneys as well the story shows that anyone can move between the nonprofit and private law sectors and that doing so can make you more impactful valuable asset to the consumer rights world thing too often people tend to enter into one box either you start nonprofit knee remain there or maybe you make the switch to private and elden people go from private into nonprofit net really makes Mike's Experience quite unique and I think that we all have a lot that we can learn from him so without further ado here's my interview with Mike Landes Mike Thank you for joining me today how are you doing autographing yeah of course it is a great pleasure to have you on a you know I know that you're out in Denver but used to be an east coaster at least for a temporary period of time were you originally from Colorado no I'm I'm from the East Coast I grew up in New Jersey Went to law school in New York but then actually out in out here in Colorado for Undergrad Cholera College and then while I was in Undergrad met my now wife who is from Colorado so we were back on the east coast for a little while but then moved back out here just a few years ago so Colorado was my adopted home got it all right I was wondering your background so I'm also a New Jersey guy so I've moved a little bit further out on the coast but that's my original home turf as well on I have you know lots of Jersey Jersey priding people have also too strong feelings about the state I love it and it's always going to be my home so we get back only not matt area anymore but still get back every so often until enjoy it and I saw another thing that we we do have in common I know that her law school and you know we'll we'll go back through everything but after law school you spend some time in Newark working at gibbons so I was in Newark around the same time I went to see a law school just down the street they're interesting okay so you get into the paint places and all of that and even if we were there at the same time we're sort of in the the same time yes three so today obviously you yeah so you know now you're in the nonprofit world and this is something that's particularly interesting to me because you spent a lot of time working in private practice originally as well and can you just tell us your title currently so so right now litigation director for US PERC And I also did work with the other brutes in the public interest networks sort of a a a network of public interest groups working on various issues of I work primarily was with us you know but I also help out duplication for the other groups in our network as well be litigation director for for us park so what led you to want to go to law school in the first place yeah let's see coaching so law school so after I graduated from Undergrad I did the Peace Corps and that was something the Peace Corps was something that I had always wanted to do at a high school teacher who had done the Peace Corps and he would tell really great interesting amazing stories about his experience in Afghanistan when he the volunteer and so that was always in my mind when I was graduating college that was you know what I wanted to do so I went to hunters for two years and and it wasn't taking about law school was just doing the Peace Corps thing but then the work I was doing on my project was municipal development so I was helping me we really small remote rural town of their small local governments for plan and execute just a bunch of different projects in a bunch different areas public health education like small infrastructure things and it was sort of just through that work that I realize the importance of law and sort of saw how how significant important was for for kind of the various development projects of you're working on and there were sort of some kind of contracting issues these are some public participation issues 'cause doing a lot with sort of like civic engagement and civic involvement in Honduras had recently passed a transparency law is working with a little ooh on transparency issues so it was sort of doing that work that I thought it'd be interesting to go you know return to the US to Go to law school so I actually applied studied taking the L. Sets within within a whole set of other stories Earth experience or getting into doing l. sat abroad sort of rat was a remote town in Honduras but all that decided go to school did the application process you know from there and then came back and and and went to law school and did you actually get a joint degree at the time I guess why Fordham where I went to law school offers a Joint J. D. Masks turns and I did my masters in international political economy and development and so I think that was sort of a little bit of a holdover from kind of peace corps experience definitely something that I was interested in the Nice thing about the program at that time I don't think it's this way anymore is that you could do it in three years and so you know so able to do it not at any extra time and it was an area that I was interested in and you know there were three football when he came to transferring credits so I could speak lock horses that were sort of international nature and they would transfer to the master's degree and I was able to take some ECON classes for my masters degree that within also transfer back for the for the law degree you know sort of an area that I was interested in it so just sort of matched up really well and like I said it wouldn't add additional time so it was sort of a nice you know kind of way to vary I guess the classes I was taking in meet some other folks and it was just I think a fund I I think it was hip joint Jaydee. I mean that's remarkable that you were able to do that in only three years that's absolutely fantastic how could you pass up that opportunity right yeah that's kind of how I thought it was kind of cool thing and I actually didn't know about it when I had started but then there was a when I was there was three doing the program he knew I had done life with the Peace Corps I've always felt that it would be a remarkable thing for this country if we he kind of had a mandatory public service year right I mean we don't have a military draft that's compulsive right now thankfully but if if there was something where everyone after high school had to do a year of service be it you could choose to go military or you could choose to do teach for America or Peace Corps or ah teach for America and wouldn't do because you don't have a degree but to do some kind of public service when you're in your early twenties I think would be or still a teenager has benefit everyone oh yeah I think so I'm obviously biased because I did it and loved it but but I do agree that I think something Mike that would be really good you know because I think it does give you so much perspective and I think just sort of helps form the people in sort of instill a sense of kind of of of community and sort of the importance of doing service work and I think it you could instill that in Folkston yet I think there are probably more likely to get from you to do throughout their lives and and yeah I think that would be a great a great program so yeah I'm behind that one hundred percent you suggested before I think I heard you say that the experience and Peace Corps really influenced your desire to go to law school which is obviously why you you went for the down there how did you go into law school with a particular vision of what you would do with the degree yeah I think probably like maybe like most people going into law school sort of general idea but definitely no real specific plans and you know and I knew I wanted Impose some sort of public service public interest work right so like that that was a given I knew that that's what I wanted to do with my law degree but sort of within the specific you know as far as like the specific area kind of you know work I wanted to be doing that was much more open ended and so one of the reasons why chose for them because they have this fine scholar this program which is one of their public interest programs you apply to I think right before you start your one year and then you're in that program throughout your you're three years you know it's a great way to sort of network with the other public-interest minded students you know you sort of get sort of a it's a the benefit of of having faculty advisors and you do all sorts of event programming and and you know support for summer internships to do public interest work so sweatshirt of did that right away and then kind of got on that public interest track you know all through law school which is sort of you know where I knew I wanted to be and then the other thing is when I started law school in the fall of two thousand eight in New York City which was of course right around the time when you are the markets were melting in the financial crisis was happening so I think that then also influenced a lot sort of direction that I would ultimately take throughout law school and even then to this day interesting and when you got out of law school what was the first job that you took his lawyer yeah so I was in law school interested in public service work got interested in doing consumer protection work and so I actually did my wealth summer at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington and the Bureau of Consumer Protection and specifically with the division of Financial Practices and I did some work as well with kind of identity protection so sort of knew that that's what I wanted to do but then it was senior three Oh year and I was you know figuring options and talking to professors and talking to other law students in another attorneys everyone's like corking was a good thing to do so I ended up clerking right after law school for State Appellate Court Judge in New Jersey for a year and that was a great experience and really liked the judge who I worked for and and that sort of like thinking about pulling back in practicing in New Jersey so sort of going into the the judiciary maintenance got it and from there you ended up at Gibbons afterwards is that right right so I went and so that was not on my radar when I was sort of looking high planning on going into private practice like I said I was more interested always in a public service or government service were working at a nonprofit but a a CO clerk had a sister WHO's working had given in so he said you know it was a good firm and you know he thought that it would be interesting in the work that I could get some good experience doing so I ended up getting in touch with them and that was the only firm that apply to and and thought it would be a good good place to spend a couple of years you know get some litigation experience you know but it was never sort of my my plan to sort of be there for my entire career but you know it was good New Jersey centric law firms and and they actually have quite a big reputation for doing a lot of pro bono work as well is my understanding so yeah what areas did you work at within givens yes in the Business Commercial Litigation groups doing sort of general civil litigation and the kind of the breach of contract stuff between businesses and sort of that that that type of thing but actually one of the more interesting I got to work on to one of the partners firm had been named the trustee of a bankrupt company that was a a running as operating a Ponzi scheme and so we were doing the affirmative securities fraud litigation and when I was in law school I had also done an internship with the SEC in New York for one of the semester getting to work on the affirmative security for cases that were against the broker dealers an against the auditing company you know this defunct firm We've actually something I was interested in doing you know state able to put putting some time on those cases which I thought was work but I was able to work on some really interesting asylum cases given the relationship with I WANNA say human rights I maybe which is a nonprofit city we were able associates able to work on asylum place worked on to asylum cases while I was at even that's when Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen.
