John Zmirak: As Flies to Wanton Boys, Are We to the Left
"A lot of pieces that stream dot org. And talk about the one where you quote Shakespeare, if you don't mind. It's called as flies to wanton boys. Are we to the left? They kill us for their sport. That is a paraphrase from king Lear, the actual line is as flies to wanton boys. Are we to the gods? They kill us for their sport. If the character of Gloucester, he's a loyal courtier, he's blinded and thrown the wilderness to starve to death by the villains of the play goneril and Cornwall. He's speaking about the gods, again, it's a pagan world in king year, are elites are pagans, and they think of themselves as gods. And they treat us the way the Greek and Roman gods treated ordinary people. They descend from Olympus, they rape, they kill, they rob, they tyrannize, and they go back to Olympus, and they expect not to face any consequences. And I don't care if they go to church and screen Jesus the way rainfield Warnock does or Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi do. These people are pagans who think of themselves as gods. They need to be set apart from the rest of us with blue checks on Twitter with the freedom to riot mostly peacefully and burn down cities when they want and face no legal consequences to nullify elections, the tariff, the social contract, spit on our constitution, do fake impeachments of presidents, commit perjury, lie on television, face absolutely no consequences. They opted the left is occupied the U.S. capitol. They never went to prison for two years without trial. They were never put in solitary confinement. The people who took over the Wisconsin state capitol when Scott walker was governor, the number of leftists who were punished for their terrorist crimes is zero.

"It's from lear's point of view. The good daughter is the obedient daughter and also the pretty daughter and so from his point of view. I think all is most of his adult life. He has preferred cordelia because she's the youngest and the prettiest and so i think in a lot of families especially in former generations when fathers and mothers basically did what they want wanted and they had pets and they had children that they didn't like and they had children that they worked to death. They had children that they spoiled. So that that's another aspect of the play. That i thought was interesting and i wanted to explore on the novel was the complexities family life. If i might jump in it so interesting that you say that what you said about duty on service and 'obedient and all these. Things is just so entangled in women's role inside a family Depending on which member of the family she is on the question really is in lear. I think which you Explosive beautifully. I think in we young is say that. What do we owe each other. What do we owe the environment. What we owe ourselves and daughters trying to come to terms with who they are themselves to themselves inside all of that. And i think there's a tragedy that that is quite heartbreaking. Antony wants to jump in. I just want to say that cordelia is the preferred one. He says that openly they all know that and yet she's the one. That's kind of the most like lear. Sense that either. She has been privileged to feeling safe to say no or she is just strong willed as he has and difficult and says no throughout this piece. What you're saying pretty about service in duty as soon as everybody leaves ghana roll. Says her younger sister. You know you have judy scattered let you didn't do your your job. You didn't fulfil that service duty comes up a lot in this play and so does and we'll get to this..

Members of Sackler family who owned the drug company have testified they bear no responsibility for the nation's deadly opioid epidemic.

"True for you. How long you've been lying in the hammock. Well my father went to prison. When i was nine years old. He was caught selling some fake bonds. Or something i don't know and when he got out. I was living in the head with my grandparents and we went to new york. They pick me up at the railroad station. We went to new york going to new york where we were about to live My sister and my mother and father and i with another family who had also had two children until my father deva job and found apartment and everything else. We will go live with these friends of theirs in that circumstance on the train. My father just had a prison sitting alone for a little while. Said norman the year you're going to be by mitzvah for your through. I'm going to take you and your mother and your sister for a trip around the world will be gone a year and i believe of course everywhere and he'll course believed every board it and there was no chance in the world. This could happen. I didn't know that at that age. But when i started to realize i began to understand what i have long thought of as the foolishness of the human condition you can find everywhere and anywhere. It's all of us not to be on the same level as same degree or same direction as my dad's but i've had a lot about myself over the years where i've seen the foolishness of meiomi human condition. What is that. What's the foolishness of the human condition. Oh to To think the world of somebody who doesn't deserve any and vice versa. Too not understand the worth of this person. Think you're putting up with it and you're not you're benefiting from it instead those ordinary human mistakes and that moment's sitting on the train with your dad when he's saying something that he thinks will happen and you think will happen and you realize now was never going to happen. How does that connect to the hammock. Well it was a moment i lived. It was a moment. I live my my mind just came across a memory site only meta funeral. I don't even remember who's sure no it was but there are sixty eight hundred of us. I don't know standing around a gravesite and a confidence being lowered into the grave and a woman just ahead of me has a niche and scratches harass. It was to me funny as hell. And i thought well is in every moment you know. We did the episode on the family. Where archie comes into his their bedroom. After he's his has gone and the way he touches the pillow that was hers in the bedroom alone after is passing the obviously it. It got to laugh that i was positive it would get not because maybe maybe as much because they needed the laughs and had laughed at him so much before they were not laughing. At that moment that we're laughing at the human condition that the guy they spent so much time understanding nine understanding laughing at feeling for there is sadness and humor and the human condition. And it's there every moment. I'm just trying to really hear what you said. Maybe i'll say it in english says time. Listen i'm slow on the uptake. i i'm trying to. I'm trying to figure it out. You're good on the upton. I see you thinking and i found myself appreciating it a lot. The thing that i want to ask is whether that connection to the human condition your capacity to be on the hammock in those moments whether that's something that you've gotten more and more access to over the course of your life or whether that's just who you are. I think it's some of both. Certainly it's matured me. I have spoken at before. And i wish i had recordings of my articulation of the same kind of thing forty years ago. It's probably richer now or benefits from the years that i've been feeling and thinking about yemen. I wonder how the norman lear that had nine shows on. Tv at once. And i assume was working. All the time was as connected to the hammock as you are now. I have to believe things deepen or grow. You know that's the way. I feel it now is more solid are has or screener lender was all those years ago but i enjoyed. I enjoyed thinking about. I enjoyed talking about it and probably by virtue of your questions.

"Our lead story today is one of demand and supply in that order. The commodity in question is semiconductors. The demand as we'll explain is nearly universal the supply well it's lagging and more so every day bloomberg got its hands on some data from the susquehanna financial group that says if you order a chip today the aforementioned semiconductors you're going to have to wait seventeen weeks for it to be delivered. Four plus months that is to put it mildly no way to run a supply chain. And as marketplace's samantha field reports. It is doing damage to way more than cars or computers or smartphones. These days almost everything has a chip whether we think of it as high tech or not. If it has a plug or battery probably has chips in it glenn. O'donnell research director at forrester says that includes refrigerators video. Doorbells and light bulbs you can turn on with your phone and even lower tech things like kids toys because all the toys gotta talk now and they got to react and they have little motors right. Now there's a shortage of all kinds of chips. Even the most basic ones says china vasan an analyst at bloomberg intelligence for. It doesn't matter if it's one hundred dollars or fifty cent part. There's just not enough capacity at factories around the world to meet the demand from all of the industries. That need chips because there's such a shortage. The semiconductor industry is having to pick and choose what to prioritize says. Mario morales at market research company. Idc it's for prioritizes. The large scale lear is like computing. Mobile phones is the largest market so though supply chains are always going to get priority and other companies especially smaller are going to have to wait longer for chips so shrine of austin at bloomberg says if you need something like a new appliance anytime soon even if you don't care about it being smart all of those products will be in.

Fortnite for beginners
"Fortnight is a massive multiplayer online video. Game developed by epic games released in two thousand seventeen is available in three distinct game mode versions so they otherwise share the same general game. Play in game engine But these three distinct versions are fortnight. Colon save the world. Okay fortnight no colon battle royale fortnite battle royale and fortnight creative. Oh there's three of them. So the objectives vary depending on which mode you're playing but the broad goal of fortnight is to survive against a prolonged force antagonist who will attempt to eliminate you okay so for night begin from an internal game jamat epoch game so there in american video game and software developer and publisher based out of north carolina So they did this internal game jam around twenty eleven after they published the game gears of war so a game jam which i only recently learned at work a game. Jam is a contest where participants try to a video game from scratch with a specific deadline. So it's usually like twenty four hours or you know maybe maybe seventy two hours to work to come up with this so it's kind of like a like a creativity burst. I'll shut the the bowl of that is to work with other people and create a game from scratch so depending on the format again your participants might be in teams maybe you are working independently. Who knows but epic games is also the developer of the unreal engine which is an open source in advanced real time. Three d creation tool. And you'll hear a lot of Video games and special effects and even like some film stuff runs off of this unreal engine. So the unreal engine. Original purpose was as a state of the art game engine. But it's now used across industries so it's for cutting edge content interactive experiences in immersive virtual worlds Unreal engine is a real time engine. An editor that features photo realistic rendering dynamic physics and effects robust data translation and also lifelike animation. So it's kind of a big thing whenever somebody is using the unreal engine. You know you're going to get really could effects from it so that that's all out of epic games which which founded in the savage that engine so for me was not initially one of the games that was actually developed during that game jim but the concept of merging the construction game genre so games like sim city or minecraft with shooter games came together and it led to the foundation affording. So you probably know. It sim city is if you're our age but a refresher on minecraft so in minecraft which was first released in two thousand nine actually players. Explorer blackie procedurally generated three d world with infinite terrain and they may discover an extract raw materials craft tools and items and build structures or works so game modes in minecraft include a survival mode in which players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health and creative mode where players have unlimited resources. So players can modify or maud game to create new gameplay mechanics items and assets and minecraft has a very distinctive like visual s. That like you can recognize if somebody showing you a screenshot of minecraft. So what epic did is they prepared to release fortnight as a paid early access title in july twenty seventeen and they had plans to release it as free to play some time in twenty nine thousand nine after gaining feedback from players to improve the game so originally titled fortnight and lear renamed to fortnight colon. Save the world. This original base module is a player versus environment cooperative game. So you have four players collaborating toward a common objective on various missions. The game is set after a fluke. Storm appears across earth causing about ninety eight percent of the population to disappear and the survivors are attacked by zombie. Like husks so the player takes the role of commanders of home. Shelters collecting resources saving survivors and defending equipment. That helps to either collect date on the storm or push back the storm. In from missions players are awarded a number of in game items including hero characters. Weapons trap schematics and survivors all of which can be leveled up through gained experience to improve their attributes. Also you're working together with people against this common enemy player versus environment cooperative game. In around the same time the epic released fortnight into early access pub g had become a worldwide phenomenon selling millions of copies and drawing strong interest in the battle royale genre so a battle royale game is an online multiplayer video game that blends the survival exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with kind of the last man standing game. Play so the name. The genre is taken from two thousand japanese film titled battle royale which was based on a novel of the same name and presents a similar theme of a last man standing competition in a shrinking play zone. So you've heard people. My brother plays this one. You've heard people's mentioned before what the heck is pub- g it's an abbreviation for player unknowns battlegrounds so that's an online multiplayer battle royale game and in this game one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves So there's an available safe area. The games map which decreases in size over time and it ends directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters with other players. And the last player or team standing wins the round The game's concept and design was led by brendan green. Who's better known by his online handle player known and he'd previously created mods for other battle rail type games pudgy was the top selling premium game of two thousand seventeen selling thirty million copies worldwide and grossing. About nine hundred million dollars. I have can. I tell you never heard of this game in my whole life. You know you are. You aren't really doing a lot of player games. How it's absolutely right. You know what i. It's funny i feel like there's been a couple of questions and learn a league in maybe the last five seasons or so that like the answer will be some video game or something that we that when we see the answer. We've never heard of this popular selling thing in all of the world and it sold got julian copies and everybody except you plays it. What's the so this is why we're absolutely. Yeah so you know. Epochs saw what pudgy had been doing and they were like maybe we could also do a battery. Yeah so what. Epic did was rapidly develop their own version atop their original fortnight in about two months so by september two thousand seventeen at was about to release this as a second mode from save the world in the paid for earlier access but then later decided to release this as a free game that would be supported with microtransactions. Microtransactions are the business model where users can purchase virtual goods with micro payments and make your transactions are often used in free to play games to provide a revenue source for the developers and there are a staple of the mobile app market so in game currency in fort night is called v books to them. You might see this icon happens sometimes. The you see llamas pop up and fortnight okay. So llamas also known as lama pinatas are the main loop boxes in fortnight and they are also fortnight's primary mascot so the vendor tech store is where players can purchase lama pinatas to break open for rewards in llamas can be produced using view bucks or event specific currency and they contain various helpful. Items like heroes schematics. Weapons and there are also different types of llamas in the game including basic llamas daily llamas and event llamas so For an has a very distinctive aesthetic. It's very cartoony. there's a very distinct color palette. I mean it's it's actually pretty visually pleasing see this distinctive looking lama. You know that that is for

"Can confirm the facts of this story. We are tired of the pandemic and ready to shop.

Lear says this time around the checks are bigger and they're going out faster plus the monies targeted to low and middle income households who were most likely to have lost work and be strapped for cash now. Rising confidence is likely to spark more consumer spending but lisa ruin that forbes adviser says it's not clear how much or how fast what we're seeing now. Is this really cautious optimism.

Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.
What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?
"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem
Reproductive Justice & Women in the COVID Economy
"Monica. Thank you for being with us today. Thank you so much for having me really is honored to be on the show with you today and to being conversation about reproductive justice. So i tell us what brought you to doing reproductive. Justice work and tell us a little bit abou- calling in reproductive justice in some people call her reproductive freedom. What brings me to reproductive justice. You know To answer that question. I have to take myself back to my hometown of wingate north carolina which is in rural north carolina. Honor one of those small one. Stop light kind of towns off a two lane highway and growing up in the rural south is. It's beautiful in so many ways that also opened my eyes to a lot at a very young age growing up in my community. I went to a school where there was only abstinence only education so we were desperately trying to find ways to have conversations about our bodies and to to talk about the feelings in the urges that we were getting as we were growing into adolescence and there was no space to do that until we had to find those things on our own and to create community with each other in huddle up in spaces to try to get this information in that to me. Just didn't seem right but we were doing the best that we could in. You know the church black church was episode for me my community. It's where i learned how to organize. I learned the had a voice. I mean there's just so much to Organizing route that. I get to the black church right because it was just an important piece in my journey however it was also a space where you know. We couldn't talk about bodies. It was just not the conversation that people were trying to have but almost every young girl that was in my church in so many that were in my community outreach. That went to school with. They were having children before graduating high school. And i'm like it's obvious that we're doing it. It's obvious that you know he's a conversation that we need to have and we just weren't having them and you know i i left wingate. I went to an h. b. c. You and came out while i was in school and it was like another part of my journey of understanding my body consent intimacy all different things that come along with growing into a young adult and i still felt. There wasn't a lot of space to have these conversations and I was desperately seeking those spaces and just trying to put the pieces together for myself. And so i think it's the experiences on. Unfortunately i also dealt with sexual assault in my adolescence as well as these experiences just all came together. And i didn't know what the term was yet but i knew that these issues were important to me in. I wanted to find answers and solutions to help me into also help those folks in our community that cared about. And so when. I put that beside you know reproductive justice movement that was started by black women in nineteen ninety four. The world starts collide. Right so yeah wasserman. Twelve black women actually came together. Some of which are very active in the work today. Like loretta ross. And dr tony bond able may will thomas here in georgia. These black women came together to create a framework that was more expansive in when thinking about our reproductive lives in this country and they brought together social justice in reproductive health and rights to talk about the intersection of her lives of black women and to have an organizing frame that allowed us to really talk about the myriad of issues. Right that we deal with lear making our decisions about our reproductive lives and so this framework was developed in nineteen ninety four battles women in now it is led by women of color all across country. Today right where we are all fighting for the human rights to have the children that we want in the ways that we want to prevent pregnancies without shame and with dignity to be able to parent our children in healthy and safe environments rights. We we we can already see the intersections of our work in terms of you know making sure i were not being plagued by you know. Environmental issues are making our water. Unclean or police brutality and we think about the rising rates of maternal mortality in this country and ultimately nova's work is really about our human rights bodley autonomy to make our own decisions about our bodies therefore our lives and so that's what reproductive justice is. It's the work it's not political home. It's where i feel whole and complete and those experiences again of growing up. Is that country. Girl and unique county is what really brought me to this work. And i didn't know that there was a movement waiting for me but it was.
