Landis welcome to bloomberg thank you very much for having me so you spent your life in silicon valley and are known as one of the longest tenured technology investors. How'd you find your way into tech investing. Well there's a there's a long boring Story of how you know touched every stone along the past or there's more of the the moment time parable answer and i'll give you the moment at time answer and that is when i was in the fifth grade. I told my parents that i wanted to be a historian when i grew up now my parents were both children of the great depression and so they were immediately horrified. That i was Unwittingly i was twenty two profession. Wouldn't make me very financially successful or secure. And they really tried hard to talk me out of it and finally one of them said you know kevin if you can figure out the history and it hasn't happened yet then you're gonna be alright son and the other quickly agreed and i thought about that on and off ever since that if you can figure out the history and it hasn't happened that's a really good thing and i think that's that's a pretty good encapsulation of what i do. That's the definition of investing history. That has yet to happen. So i'm kind of intrigued by your background. You have a bs degree. It looks like this is a double degree in electrical engineering and computer science from uc. Berkeley before you got your mba. The the first question is why not go directly to a tech startup. Was there any ever any lure to that. There was and i consider that. But this is one of those moments. Were faith sort of intervene. And my dad's business was as a manufacturer's rep in silicon valley meaning. He was the customer facing office. He and his partner with the customer facing office for tech companies based outside of silicon valley giving with silicon valley customers and his partner had a heart attack and had to go in for coronary bypass surgery during my senior year in college and my dad needed needed me to come join the business because he would like a one man band. Otherwise so I spent the first four years of my professional career instead of learning more things about engineering learning a lot about business and human nature and how to deal with simple so kevin your first experience in the field was not anything that encouraged you to wanna become a An insider at some tech startup. Well that's right But it. I mean it taught me a great deal about human nature about business and business strategy and like you know that led to the second job That i got out after business school at as an analyst at a high technology technology market research firm which also began teaching me a lot of the things that that i had thought that i learned in school but actually weren't true gives an example of things you learned in school. The turned out to be not true. Well one of the one of the explanations for Fisher market is that there's a lot of just incredibly brilliant. Gifted people doing perfect research. And that everything that can be known about a company already in the stock price but when you're An analyst at again at a high tech market research firm and somebody from a big name financial firm calls and starts asking you a bunch of very naive questions.

S lewis in one of his essays in the book on stories said that story start for him with an image started for him with a new image Said often that Contains emotion that prompts the writer. So did this book start for you with an image or images or emotions and created that initial spark. Take this book. Well it it's complicated and this is an unusual book for me. as you know And it actually began a number of years ago at least as a the germ of an idea and it was something that grew out of books that i read years ago A particularly a novel pincher martin. By william golding. I don't know that book which i read. I don't know thirty years ago more forty years ago probably and it's a story in which you'll forced to reconsider the entire narrative when you get to the end of the book right where a world that you thought was real turns out to be in some ways not and this had always seemed to me a fascinating compelling kind of idea for a story and i've always loved seeing those those kinds of narratives not just in books piddles who in tv shows and movies Something that you think real you gradually realize is in some ways Some sort of delusion or constructive of either the narrator or character and. I had been thinking about this in the context of writing a school shooting novel and kicking around this idea in very vague general terms and and never quite figuring out how i wanted to do it and then A little over a year ago as you know I was involved in a school shooting at unc charlotte and that changed the narrative. The project that had been sort of on the back burner that had existed as a vague outline that revisited. A couple of times.

The French history behind Lebanon's problems
"Earlier this month, a deadly blast in Beirut killed more than one hundred and seventy people, engine thousands, and lift three, hundred, thousand homeless. And a vast landscape of destruction. Now, Lebanon was already in extremely bad shape before this blast exacerbated by the covid crosses the chronic corruption and dysfunction that had defined Lebanese politics for decades with all that had brought the economy to ruin. Many people have lost they laugh savings and investments no wonder widespread protests recently led to the resignation of the Lebanese Prime Minister and his cabinet. So the poodle listen a broader historical context. Let's welcome back to the program Joshua Landis. He heads the Middle East Program at the University of Oklahoma Josh Welcome back to between the lines. It's a pleasure being with you Tom. Now Lebanon was once a model for the Middle East by route was dubbed the Paris of the East. Now, today Lebanon looks like Syria Iraq how did this happen? Well it happened because Lebanon is an extremely divided country it like Iraq and Syria there are Shiites and sinise dividing the Muslim side but there's also about thirty three percent of the population are Christians. Both marinade there and and Greek Orthodox. So you have the same. Religious Divisions in Lebanon that you do in Syria and Iraq but in fact, you have more and that's one reason why Lebanon fell into such a bloody civil war from nineteen, seventy, five to ninety, which was. Patched up. Most recently and They've been running in what turns out to be a real puns e scheme through the central. Bank. In which they shored up the Lebanese pound by borrowing gobs of money billions upon billions of dollars and. and. Supporting the exchange rate, but it turned out that that was a Ponzi scheme because tons of Lebanese in Australia. The United States Europe were sending their dollars to Lebanon to be in these dollar-denominated accounts that were getting interest rates as high as twelve thirteen percent. So everybody wanted that kind of interest rate, but it turned out to be a Ponzi scheme in just collapsed a few months ago, which was sparked these terrible demonstrations and instability because the country is now impoverished inflation has gone through the roof and people are discovering that they don't have any money and it's it's Lit tensions between different sectarian groups, and of course, as I mentioned in my introduction many people in Lebanon I've lost their life savings and investments. To people realize that it goes back to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War One this in France and Britian what do they do that essentially created free great minority ruled regimes in the Middle East, tell us mall. Yes they did and Lebanon was carved out by France which got a both Syria and Lebanon from the League of Nations after World War One. The League of Nations conceded this to France to really rule over the mass colonies, but they are called mandates and. France carved out Lebanon as an independent country. And made the borders such that they were as big as they possibly could maintaining a Christian majority so that the government would be dominated by Christians at the center ruling over Shiites Druze a bunch of sending Moslems none of whom would be able to compete in theory with the Christians and this allowed for a very French friendly country on the Mediterranean that France thought would serve it. Well, the problem is that within the years. The demographics began to change and Muslims became the crushing majority and this led to the civil war in hundred, seventy five and ever since then the various religious groups have been squabbling over. Political power. And today fifty percent of all parliament members that have to be Christians. National Pact even though Christians are probably only a third, the population which underlines how You know precarious. The entire political system is, and of course, in Iraq following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire with the British mandate the Sunni minority pretty much ran the show from the time of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire right through the downfall of Saddam Hussein, and in Syria it was the Alawite minority that ran the show and of course Stiffer differs from the Sunni majority during the recent civil war. Correct. You're absolutely right and this was a pattern throughout the northern Middle East where the colonial powers whether it was. Britain or was France would establish a minority in power given the lion's share of power, and that helped them to rule by divide and conquer, but it left a terrible legacy. That the Middle East is suffering from today because the Alawites this religious minority that's twelve percent of the country ruled Syria and today the uprising was an attempt by the Sydney majority to overthrow that minority that's clinging to power in Syria Saddam Hussein sunny twenty percent of the country Cenis and the Shiite majority and Kurds rose up to try to get rid of Saddam Hussein leading to very bloody civil war ethnic war and and that's that's one of the major causes for instability throughout. The region is this terrible fight between these different religious groups

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

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. How would you describe liquid? The two people that don't know it's a hydro on this product..

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.

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.

"What if the spacecraft could simply use the resources found on moons to make exploration possible. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future as a project funded through Nasr's innovative advanced concepts or Nyack program. The TRITON hopper is a proposed vehicle that could explore one of Neptune's mysterious moons. Here is Dr Geoffrey Landis from Nasr's Glenn research center to tell us more. So what do we want to do here? Well, we want to land on titan, but we don't wanna just land. We want to have mobility on TRITON. There's an enormous number of trade. Studies in looking at a hopper for this. What makes this hopper special is? It's ability to use in situ propellant. It'll have in situ science will dig down into the surface. Look at what the surfaces made of we can feed it with anything. We can feed it with nitrogen for a little bit further north and what we're scooping up from the surfaces methane. We can feed. Perfectly. Well with nothing. The hopper concept will demonstrate the feasability of both radioisotope thermal propulsion and institute refueling, hopefully, taking us a hop.
