Woman in Riverside, California, brags on Facebook that she got a COVID vaccine
"From a riverside woman that's getting a lot of attention. She is not a frontline medical worker, but she has received her first dose two fighters vaccine. She posted a photo on her vaccination card or rather of it, And when a friend asked, how did she get the shot? The woman said a family connection. It was a big deal. Redlands Community Hospital. In a statement read, Lind's said that it administered vaccines to its health care workers and had several doses left over and I have to be used within a certain time period. It didn't sound like they had thought too much about contingency plans, because I mean how much effort would it take to call the local police station and fired Apartment to see how many of those guys are available. Just in case they have extra doses. Or any other patients who are in the hospital who happened to be above a certain age. David Lowe is a senior associate dean for research at the UC Riverside School of Medicine. There have been examples before of staffers who don't interact with patients getting vaccinated. This woman, though, reportedly works for Disney. Lo said. There's still not a lot of clear guidance of how to go through the vaccination process. It's basically left to the institutions that are lucky enough to get shipments.
Using Your Smartphone with Your Digital Camera, Not Instead of It
"Today's theme is using your smartphone with your digital camera. Not instead of it. I'm derek story. There's been so much talk about how smartphones will replace our digital cameras. But i think for nimble photographers. That's the wrong approach instead. Let's explore how we can use smartphones with our digital cameras instead of replacing them. I'll share one scenario today with a fujifilm x one hundred v in iphone. Twelve pro max. Although there are many combinations that will work great for both ios and android and of course on the digital camera side as well. I hope you enjoy the show. They're certainly situations. When i want my digital camera with all its tools inconveniences and then other situations when my smartphone will work. Just fine but to tell you the truth. The best scenario is having both with me. And that's what. I want to explore today now on the digital camera side when i discovered is that if i go with smaller more compact cameras which shouldn't be a shock to you right the fujifilm x one hundred v the olympus pen f the fujifilm x f. Ten with the twenty eight millimeter f. Two point eight lands those kinds of cameras that i absolutely love shooting with. But i don't want to carry all the accessories and everything you know. That's the funny thing about digital photography you can start out with a relatively compact camera and then maybe a compact lens and then you start packing your bags and go. I really should bring this. And i really should bring that. I need a longer lens. I need a wider lens. I probably should have a flash all that kind of stuff. Maybe i should bring my ipad. Maybe i should bring you know my Laptop maybe i should bring all the stuff in the next thing you know even though you started out with a relatively compact camera ended up with a relatively large camera kip. And if you're just going out the door for a walk you're going to. Maybe you know go visit a local park. If you're going to do something like that. Do you really need to bring all that stuff with you. Well i mean at the end of the day. That's a question that only you can answer. However i'm going to pose an approach that maybe you want to think about. That is a very nice alternative to starting out with a small camera and ending up with a big kit now the idea. I'm going to present to you. Today is taking one of your favourite microphone. Thirds are a pse cameras that you truly like. It could be a relatively compact a photo frame mirrorless as well if especially if it had A lens on it. That was reasonable in size and then augmenting it with a smartphone and especially one of the more current smartphones made by all the heavy hitters but especially smartphones at least two cameras you know two lenses and ideally three cameras or three lenses now the idea being that that smartphone can fill in the gaps that normally would be stuffing stuff into your camera bag to fulfill. And then you get to pick a camera that you truly like with lens that you absolutely love but are not worried about being limited by just having that one camera in that one lens with you you know you have like your favorite thing to shoot with just go. I love shooting with his camera. I love this lind's and then you have your sophisticated smartphone in your other pocket. That will allow you to leave everything else behind. Just your favourite camera just your smartphone and see how far you can go well. The fact of the matter is through my testing. You can go pretty far so what i'm gonna do right now is i. I'm going to start out. With listing some of the benefits of digital cameras. These are the things that i like about a digital camera. This is why. I will not give up a digital camera right and then i'm going to list some of the advantages of smartphones because they have many advantages as well and then i'm going to do is for the third list. I'm going to combine the two and say this is the dan of using both of these devices already so that is going to be the flow of this show. So let's start out with the list of benefits for digital cameras and for me. There are many the first thing that i like is that they typically have great viewfinders. That are so nice in so many different situations. In of course bright sunlight being at the top of the list so if i can look through a very nice electronic viewfinder a very nice optical viewfinder in compose a shot in really contrast bright conditions. I like that better than having to compose the lcd
Painting Exterior Brick
"You're listening to the beautiful mess podcast this week. We're talking all about painted exterior brick. I've learned so much from painting three howson row and this last time we things a little bit differently and learned even more. I know the painting brick can be controversial but we're passionate about how much it can improve home like my nine thousand nine hundred ninety s half brick half stucco home. The difference is night and day. it's magical also answering a listener question about wedding registry. Must have this. Week's episode is sponsored by leah lonnie. We'll chat more about them later in the sewed all right. Let's talk about painted brick. This is very controversial. Like you know the comments get heated. It's funny to me that it's even do people care a lot about painting brick and they care a lot about how you store display. Your books are some controversial topics universe. Okay i saw. How many times have you painted the exterior brick of a home. Not one not two but three times all right so first of all about five years ago. We painted our first home when we moved to nashville and we painted about a year after we moved in and we lived there for four years with the brick painted nowhere and tear except for the front porch where we step down on it and it's like also rains on and little bit different. That would touch every year but the rest of the brick nowhere and tear whatsoever and also like painting. A floor is very different from painting a wall. Yeah we all know the obvious and then our last home so you know that we famously moved into a house and moved out four months later so we painted that home it was it was it was an unintentional flip as soon as we realized we needed and wanted to sell it quickly. I scheduled my local painter to campaign to any came the next week and painted it and he did a great job It was very quick. It made it faster mo- We'll talk more about that later in the episode Whether or not it adds value is definitely like a big question and then our current home where we just moved to. We had it painted a couple of weeks ago. And we used a new material that we've never used before romo bio paint and it is a lime based paint so it's natural it's nontoxic it's not actually paint but it's like painting brick with brick is how they say that if you feel it still feels like brick there's no gloss to it all there's no sheen to it all it's perfectly mad and it said to age really well over time and we thought it was cool that it was environmentally friendly and lasts a little bit longer so i also like that you've kind of tried a bunch of different so you can i mean i just feel like that lind's to your with painting brick so people are interested it's like oh well should i use this type this type or what's the most affordable way to go about it or whatever for shar so on that note let's get into some common things that people like to ask Are your neighbors okay with it. You're in a little bit of a cold sack. Yeah your neighbors are fairly close. Not like right up against your house but you can definitely see their houses from your house and yours is the one white one. Everyone else has unpainted brick. So every where we've lived out of these three houses it's been mostly brick homes and our home kinda stood out why it was never the only like especially where we live. Now there's quite a few brick homes in the subdivision but not right next to ours. So i think that it. I think that it does stand out but one of our neighbors ran right over the next after we did it and said to jeremy that they had always nicknamed our house the institutional looking house and now it looks way better so funny. That's a really nice really really nice osei and we also like yeah. We wanted to make sure that they liked it so it felt good to know that like they were cool with it. Our houses a little bit tucked back. So i didn't feel like it doesn't really like show like you have to be right. It is a little it to see it. it's not a house you would like to drive by when you were like out on a drive. Let's put it that way now. It's kind of tucked away in the hold a sack. But i also just my own perspective. Even if i have a neighbor who paints their house exterior something. That maybe i wouldn't have chosen. I always just seeing. When people are taking care of their homes. I feel like most neighbors feel that way. Of course you want to check if you haven't hoa and they have rules or your neighborhood rules and you're not allowed to paint certain colors or whatever of course check into that. That's very important. Because i think your neighbors might care on that one but on that i really think just like when you have neighbors who are taking care of their house. They mow their lawn. A take care of landscaping. They don't let things become kind of broken or in disrepair even if they painted a caller. That isn't my choice. Which love white. But if i didn't i would still feel like well. At least they're you know spending money on their home in up keeping it in like that's gonna make the neighborhood. Nice place overall just that people care and are putting love and money into their property.

"lind" Discussed on OC Talk Radio
"Is just acknowledge that from cover to cover. The bible is very political book. It's extremely political is all about a king and it's about you know god creates this. World is beautiful. He delegates his authority to The first humans won't get into the literal foundations that story whether you believe that or not reality is that from the get. It's political and it's really about. Will you accept the rule of god and of course the answer was no and there was regalia and it destroyed marriages destroyed families and destroyed tribes nations. And the there's this story of the nation of israel that goes through a number of different iterations of political structure tribal and then judges and then kings and then you look at that story and you realize you know in the history of all those things others. There's really nothing but case study after case study of failure after failure. You know i mean just and then you have the story of jesus coming on scene and declaring a new king kingdom that would be modeled in a very different way than the way we modeled kingdoms and of course all of that's happening in the context of the roman empire. As you know in so i think is very important that we say pretty emphatically for those at least two are in the christians stream to be able to say the unequivocally. The message of the bible is that there is yet another king king. Unlike the kings of this world is good. As king comes suffers he dies. He's resurrected all of that and so we shouldn't enter the political discussion with no sense of certainty. Well there's a sense in which we do have at least a picture of what the end result of politics is supposed to look like in that is the flourishing of all people and we kinda started up and then certainly are divisions that grow from there. I think one of my jobs. Pastor is to keep pulling people back to this notion that whatever your allegiance on maybe in twenty first century america there is a greater allegiance to be found in christ. So i think that's one of the ways you do it and the opposite view. You know you probably are familiar with. Tk cousin who's said them. I never discussed anything except politics and religion. There's nothing else to discuss in. There's some truth there. Isn't it because we talk about politics really is and what religion really is. That's kind of our life right l. The very word you know politics is taken. The greek word policy was simply means city. It really is. it's really about relation. I mean that the word is just like okay. How are we going to get along together. That's really what the word means. And you can't help but talk about how we're gonna get along together so apparent talking to their teenager about curfew as actually having a political discussion. How are we gonna get along together. You know i've got my rules. You got your inclinations. Our are we on responded that authority. All of that is political. And you're absolutely right. It cannot not talk about politics. You know i. I know a number of people who have said you know. Not really a fan of the political parties. The two party system was and i spent some time a few years ago in romania where they had sixteen and it was interesting the distill always came down to two and i know you personally are not ah decl a fan of christians who buy wholesale into one political party or the other. Talk to me about that. I guess i would start with this I would start by saying that. National politics are far less important than we think they are when you begin to realize that our founders in their wisdom created this beautiful system our we have an executive branch let legislative branch and the legal branch government that in that separation of power alone. There is a multiplicity not only of personalities and platforms and perspectives. But there's also a multiplicity function and watch very very popular for example to for presidents to take credit for what the stock market is doing or whatever most of the forces that that influence the markets are removed from politics. I'm not saying tax policy doesn't matter that what really other so many forces beyond whatever any executive or congress does but the issues that touch us most frankly in seeking the flourishing of people happen in our own communities and i think that while there's great emphasis on national politics the reality is that touches our lives more is local politics and statewide politics for example. Even all this discussion about the colonel election all the laws about the election are state laws. So i just think that as you begin to evaluate you know for most parents. The thing that matters is what's going on in their kids school you know. Washington has very little to do with that. How well or how often you invest the time to learn about the people who are running for your local school board. The enforcement of justice for example is far more rest far more with local judges than it does with the supreme court and yet we put all of our focus on things that don't really impact us all that much in our day to day. Life in our own city were n determine world flourishing. So when i say that. I'm not a fan of parties when i mean by that is not that i don't lean toward one platform or another bite. It would be. I think silly to think that. I could check all the boxes down one column of a ballot an end up with the results that i want at every level of government. So i just want to caution people to to be careful and intelligent as they go to vote on not just nationally. Not let that national decision. Assume that just because you know you voted for. Let's say the right coach that you've got the right place kicker. I was expecting you to go more in the direction. I'm part of. Its heard a sermon on this from you. And i you know not like listened to all year sermons but augusta address the issue. You know the fifth century guston wrote on the city of god in the city of man. In how the fact that it's not an either or that we are part of both but our main identity As people who were associated with the church is to be with god with christ but then we have a secondary identity that we need to work out With men and seems to me in the sermon i fell a bit of discontent in you or irritation and you at the fact that if people would have the political party happed and forget that their first allegiance was some was supposed to be somewhere else while cer- certainly that's the case but even more so you know in the eighth a guston's bond. Will you basically have church and state kind of then diagram. You know you've got these two circles in. There's overlap when it comes to certain issues and you know i'm really Convinced that it is been diagram but the kingdom of god is above the kingdom of this world and so as those who follow christ on one of our main responsibilities first of all to see ourselves. The new testament teaches that. We're going to judge the nation's right so we should not stand with ina party but really we stand above a party as god's children and we stand as people who are called to.
Asteroid samples tucked into capsule for return to Earth
"This was a mission way we yet we sent the our SARS rex probe to the asteroid Banu, which it sorta hung around. Looking for a good long while up until last week when I decided I, Kai we're GonNa land on this thing and take a sample while it was a success. until it may be wasn't where we we've Houston, we have a problem. Yeah. Hopefully, not long term problem hopefully solvable but Yeah I think I think the bottom line is they were too successful would that be way of describing it? So the just to recap the the device that they use, it's so the spacecraft itself approaches the surface of of asteroid. Benadryl did this last week in fats. With a kind of almost like a miniature BECO-. Stretched out, which contains a device on the end, which is called Tag Sam. Tag. Sam Is an acronym for touch and go sample acquisition mechanism scrape. On. Mind that one. That one at all go to the feeling of just touching the surface to it hasn't it tax tag lock the game. Exactly. So I'm so this is sort of like a pan. which collects the the sample. Then there apparently is. as a Myla flap, which is meant to seal shocked wants the sample has been collected. Box they were so successful with the tags on the some of the some of the bigger bits of soil and doug that didn't go through the flat properly have wedged it open. Now. They've been the they've collected more than they expect it to. And Dot. Essentially. Maine's that. I feel that they have the possibility of collecting. If they didn't feel that got enough they have the possibility of collecting another sample in January I think the eleventh of January but that I think has now been ditched because they feel they've got enough. In fact has as the NASA bulletin says because the first sample collection event was so successful Nasa Science Mission Directorate has given the mission team the go-ahead to expedite sample storage. In originally scheduled for the second of November. In the space craft sample return capsule to minimise for the sample loss. So this is a separate capsule, the Ash L. see the sample return capsule. which they've got a stow, the sampling and. One there's a quote from Dante Lauretta who's the principal investigator for Cyrus? Rex University of Arizona, the abundance of material we collected from new made it possible to expedite our decision to stow the team is now working around the clock to accelerate the storage line. So we can protect as much of this material as possible for return to Earth now. This is where it gets tricky because what was expected to happen with the storage procedure was that? Cyrus. Rex. would run autonomously through a sequence of events. and. So what they're doing now. A saying, no, we don't want that to happen. We want this to be done. So carefully, carefully enough that we don't lose soil face so they gotta do it all by hand in other words, send a command watch. What happens. And then send the next command watch. What happens the problem is you've got thirty seven minute delay between sending the command and knowing what he's done because they signal travel time at the moment between us and the spacecraft is eighteen point four, five minutes. So each step means that you've got a way for thirty seven minutes while you take the step and then wait to see what happened. In in the in the consequences, it's GonNa be very, very painful I. Think Andrew. This is probably happening as we speak 'cause shadow for the twenty seventh of October. USTA. I would we are the following day? So I, think it's happening now so By the time this this goes to add the outcome might note already oh drought. We've lost it all up. Sure it will be why. Hope not but yeah, it's In terms of glitches when it comes to space missions, this is not the worst. It's ever happened on a visit to another world or another object but. Know, there's been the famous cases of lind's caps getting stuck on by hate all sorts of weird and wonderful things but. it sounds like that go to solution and when Libby Watch. Documentaries or movies about problems in space it's always about working the problem and they obviously have got an idea on how to deal with this. The just GonNa have to be very careful with the execution. Thus correct exactly which is why the doing it one step at the.

Police Body Cam Footage Is Being Used For Surveillance, Activists Say
"So there are big differences in the police reform bills that Republicans and Democrats are pushing in Congress. One thing they do share in common is more money for local police departments that promised to use body worn cameras. But some activists say that police departments are inappropriately using these cameras for surveillance rather than accountability purposes. Member station. Cage's easy in Phoenix. Heather van Block, Lind reports. Cleveland Ali is an advocate for indigenous sacred sites and a self described anarchist and peaceful protester. But police and Flagstaff didn't agree at an event a couple of years ago into 1018 the same day that the city of Flagstaff formally announced there Indigenous Peoples Day celebration, which actually has been contentious for years. Myself on DH. 40 people rallied in downtown Flagstaff. The rally lasted a few hours, with protesters marching through downtown, holding signs and chanting. Police walked alongside keeping roadways clear for traffic. Everybody went home. There were no arrests until three weeks after the event when police brought in Manali in about 10 others on charges of obstructing the public thoroughfare. Based on footage from body camps. Sonali says police actions against his group are not about public safety, but politically motivated. We're fighting on the grounds that this is an act of state repression, basically that you know they're trying to chill descent. Undermined ascent and criminalize it. Dave Moss with the Electronic Frontier Foundation says. Police warned body cams have turned law enforcement into a surveillance network. Police departments are making decisions about surveillance technology at parties and hotel rooms in closed door meetings with salespeople with marketers from tech companies who are trying to tell them about all the miracles of the technology, but not telling them about any of the risks. And we need a process where the public is engaged, elected representative. They're engaged and it's not just a sales situation. He says. Police should not record footage during First Amendment activities like journalists at work or during a religious practice or any and all protests. Ultimately, if we're trying to address police accountability if we're trying to address racism, Layering on surveillance is not going to help that. It's going to exacerbate it. But when Seattle police said they turned off their body cams during so called First Amendment events, protesters there accused them of trying to hide evidence of excessive force or abuse. It's not a new debate. Concerns about how Bodycam footage can and should be used are as old as the cameras themselves. Some police say surveillance cuts both ways. Officers can have bodycam footage is used as evidence against them, and just like video can lead to officers being arrested or dismissed for bad behavior. It can also exonerate them. Right now. Policies on body camera use very widely. There's no federal standard bills from both parties currently before Congress can't mandate, local police departments use body cameras. But only say they must if they use new federal funds to buy the

Doing it In-Camera with OMNI, by Lensbaby!
"Hey we'll come back to another episode of this week and photo of your host. Frederik van Johnson. Today on the show. I have a friend of Mine Mr Craig Strong. He's been on the show before. And if you do remember his past appearances on twit you'll know that he is the chief creative officer and a CO founder of a company called. Lynn's baby they make some some pretty cool light bending tools the latest of which is the Omni series of products. So we're GONNA talk about those today and before we do Craig. We sort of give us the Reader's Digest version of Lens. Baby you've been on before so most people know all about Lindh's baby but for the folks that may not what is Lindsay Baby. Good to be back Frederick. Thanks for having me here. Let's see so lens. Baby makes creative affects camera accessories now but previous to that it was just lenses and So but everything we do helps you find your creative voice and does so in a way that his little little different than a traditional lens manufacturer accessory manufacturer. So you guys. You guys are creating You know that's obviously Lind's baby but you do some different things and one of the things we talked about. I think in the first interview with you was the U. combating sort of the idea that these types of accessories lenses can't be used for professional level worker repeatable level war. Where can you talk to that a little bit for? We dive into the Omni. Well when when I started Lens Baby I was a professional photographer and I I had come through newspapers to start shooting commercial and weddings and whatnot. And so I I kind of had a small view of what Lens Baby could be in terms of what I was using it for. I was using it for detail photos at weddings shooting in moments. That were happening. When when I'd gotten all the safe images that I that I wanted to get That that the clients expected but what happened was once we introduced the Lens Baby. It started being used for really serious. Work photo journalism. Which I I wouldn't have thought But it's really been our customers and the photographers out there. That have have gotten the lens baby products in their hands and on their cameras that have really defined what can be done and it's pretty limitless and and it's Kinda blown me away 'cause like I said I had a pretty small perspective of you know this is. This is something that Would would be done for fun. Would be done to to reignite your creative juices and both those things are true but then it's also used to create unique imagery for your clients and which client isn't. GonNa Choose the TAGA FOR THAT. Gives them the most creative work? That's GONNA stand out pretty much most of them so any of them that. I want to work for it's cool. It's cool all right. We'll get so let. Let's switch gears and talk about this new thing. So thank you for sending these over so I can get a look at these that I've got to well made with feels like felt and Velcro in in hand stitched with leather on them. Sort of things in my hands. I'll tell us about this product in the inception of the product. So the Omni. What is it so the Omni filter is a product that that I've got one right here that allows me to Put various things in front of the Lens and currently. We've got This right here is the what do we call it the Rainbow Film? And that's going to give you some streaky rainbow things going on you can see that reflections combined with The Transmitted Rainbow that you see from up above All sorts of stuff going on so This is this is one. That's great on phones and whatnot. But you know these little tiny lenses like I've got my laptop They'll tend to show the edges and whatnot so That would be a different product in a different time but right. Now we've got it for interchangeable lens cameras anything with with filter threads on it So yeah it's the the ring right here screws onto the front of your your Lens. We've got a fifty eight millimeter and that has accessory on sorry step up rings For our step yeah step up rings for fifty five fifty two and forty nine that come along with it and then we have a larger one. You can see here on my eighty five that This this is a seventy seven and it has a step down ring to eighty two and Step up rings from Seventy to sixty seven and sixty two so yeah so we got everything covered. Basically you know but the idea here is that you can. You can position the things that you're shooting through. We've got a triangle prism here on a handle. You can position it wherever you want and leave it there with both hands. Free to shoot While you're taking your pictures and not have to hold it in place in the exact same spot where you want it for every image which isn't very practical and can you. Can you talk a little bit about the design? Because when I when I picked it up the photos on the website do it do it a fair amount of justice but actually holding those those little. What do you? What do we call them? What's the word for those those little Caesar Affect ones and they're making net in the arm is like a ball and socket magnetic? That's attached? Can you go through the the inception of analysts? So let's let's get down to its basics here we've got The ring which comes with a step up bring so it'll go on any of your Any of your lenses most interchangeable Lens Lenses that? Are you know not one hundred twelve millimeter diameter which were working on as well We'll work with it and then we've got These magnets here which you can just put your affect one's directly on Or You you can put an extension arm which allows you to articulate that and have a little more three-dimensional control so you can put it. The the magnets will be off to the side. And you can put that down at the bottom. Without having to slide anything. Around although these magnets slide slide around and give you lots of freedom so we got a long arm and a short arm so You can get up to four accessories on at once the way it's equipped so you can put one down straight on the magnet on the ring and then Two Arms. You're you're set to go. That is cool school. So then what what? Part of that is magnetic is the ball. That's magnetic or the the socket so it's the socket that's magnetic so we've got these Hollow counter sunk magnets and at the bottom of those magnets We've we have Attention which allows you to get nice solid tension so it's not going to move around accidentally And then the same is true out at the end. Where you've got magnets out at the end of the arm and Yeah it's it's a nice kit at the The idea came from From a lot of our customers using the prisons and holding things Plastic bags whatever in front of their in front of their lenses. It's been out for you know it's probably since the beginning of time looking through something to create more interest But then to to look through something that is is specifically designed and tailored to do to create Lots of different effects. In fact what we've got right here is a prism. Prism gives you three different ways to as you rotate it gives you different perspectives Because it's three different angles that were working with Looks like we've got a ninety degree thirty degree and a sixty degree and that might not be true because I'm not. I just play an engineer on TV. And but as you turn it you get what what you would normally get. With a triangle. Prison would be three sixty degree angles that that would give you your effect and as you turn it you get the same effect at each at each spot with this when you get a different effect and you know we so we're coming into it. Purposefully like we do with our Lens Design and saying okay. How can we make this as versatile as possible?
Hurricane Irma May Have Destroyed Barbuda's Generations-Old Land System
"On the Caribbean island of barbecued a land cannot be bought or sold. The whole island is shared communally. And it's been that way since the eighteen hundreds but planet money any Sara Gonzalez went there and found that capitalism is creeping in. Antigua and Barbuda are two islands. That make up one country. Antigua is mountainous and touristy see with about ninety eight thousand residents. That's where the government is Barbuda's flat flat like a penny with just fifteen hundred residents. It's the kind of island where wild donkeys. Angie's just walk into your home call and where no one wants lobster anymore. We love breakfast. We did for lunch for dinner. We'd love to three times a day. That's Atkinson Beezer beautiful. Bob Yuda when this is Natalia. John Calls her. Hey go take out new. And they both got land for their homes. The way everyone else in Barbuda's gets it people just go cut what they want. Clear it and stop bill. Just take a piece of land and be like okay. There's my this is my land. That's so that's so. We usually do perfect. No money no money not even taxes not even taxes then even like a permit fee nothing like really zero zero dollars zero zero dollars free free. No paperwork no lease no title Bob. Yuda has the greatest land deal on earth. This is Albert Patty Simon. They're calling me the grill. It simply mean a verbal historian. Back in Sixteen eighty-five Colonization Times Simon. The grio says this English Guy Christopher conjuring ten least the whole island of Bermuda from the king. Oh Yeah Cadran. On on was a slave master. He had his slaves over there. The entire island was made up of five hundred. Enslaved people at its peak and one white manager and his family and when slavery was abolished and the white manager finally left. There were no white people on the island. Just formerly enslaved people so they stayed so the people are left alone left. They're they're sorta live happy. Held the whole island in common. That's what it's called and no one ever came in and said but wait wait. You need property. Titles at some point Barbadians do start leasing. Land there are a few beachfront hotels and resorts but barbadians never sold the land and it stayed this way until twenty seventeen when hurricane. Irma had a lot of win. And then you you just just say a window Saturday. Birthday Bash. You know this. Is Natalia John Again. Almost all the buildings Bermuda were damaged know roofs. No doors Barbieri. We're totally exposed. And they heard another hurricane was coming in three days. The prime minister who lives in Antigua orders a mandatory evacuation and barbarians are like wait everyone the entire island. Everybody Alpha Bob. Yuda really the Prime Minister Gaston Brown. Says the government doesn't have the money to rebuild. Any focuses focuses on the island's most obvious acid. The land says he thinks his whole communal land thing is a big misunderstanding. Which is the Bob? wtdn have always carried this myth. Perhaps maybe a couple of hundred years that they own the land. You say that Barbuda's I have been thinking that they own the land. It is a myth that they own the land but there is a law that parliament the Antiguan. Barbian government passed. That says I just want to read. The the first sentence says enact to confirm that all land in Barbuda's is owned in common by the people of Barbuda right so so it was a dangling piece of legislation he repeals. The law tells Barbadians that you have been living on for free all these years new plan. We're going to sell it to you for one dollar eastern Caribbean. About thirty seven cents. US and now you'll have a title and you can take title to a bank to get a loan. Mm to rebuild your home that type of property rights system is quintessential to the advancement of e country. But the rest of the island lind which is most of the island that would now be open to development. Foreign investment was a trick. That is what I

"Title of your book. Is the new class war. And I'm just there's one reviewer noted that it's not class. Struggle is the only way out of this some kind of intense internal conflict. No on the contrary I could have called it. The new class compromise because my argument is that the US and other Western democracies flourished rushed after World War Two When the class war was moderated by class peace treaties by inter-clan compromises And and we've had lower productivity growth Increasing inequality all sorts of social dysfunction as that post World War Two class compromise broke down so the argument is that would be a disaster to have a continuing class war. It would also be a disaster for one class to wipe out the other other one. The managerial class needs the working class majority and we need managers. We need experts. We need investors. We capitalists as long as they're restrained so so the book is a plea to end the new class war with negotiations that lead to a new cross class compromise well and so then and this is why the middle of the last century. I pause when thinking of it as an example because we didn't have internal where we had an ex external one we had a world world war to sort of refocus. Everyone's minds here. I don't think anyone wants that. Now so what can we do to to get the manager elite as you call them to to see the good of the nation going forward requires some new meaningful compromise. But we don't want him to Claire World War. Three excuse to rebuild Labor actually nevertheless there are long term projects That the nation could commit itself to That will require cross class Collaboration one is ordinary peaceful economic development including economic competition with other countries. which you know doesn't need to take warlock forums but it means that The government has an interest in promoting technological development with Labor as well as capital taking part on the left Proponents of a green new deal. Call for a quasar warlike mobilization whether that's realistic or not you know that would provide the context in which the government could say. Okay look workers. Workers in capitalists and managers are members of the same team working for a common goal and there needs to be mutual understanding in negotiation and compromise. He's rather than constant strife. We have thirty seconds left. Michael in my last question for you is do you think American politics as it is now can actually do this. No but politics is constantly changing and the country has moved so far in my lifetime I was born in two segregated Texas in nineteen in sixty two That I think the pendulum swings and there will be a period of construction in renewal after a period of into celebration. But Michael Wins. New Book is the new class war saving democracy from the managerial elite. We have a excerpted on point. Radio DOT ORG professor Leeann. Thank you so much for joining us. I'm magnetized party. This is on point..

"We're talking this hour. Our with Michael Lind. He's a professor at the LBJ. School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas Austin is out with a really fascinating. New Book called the new class war saving democracy from the managerial manage aerial elite and professor. Linda I promise you we're going to get to an exploration of some of your ideas on how to solve this class war as you write about about it but I just I have to say I'm a little confused by something that we were left with in the last segment of the conversation. I'm hoping you can clarify here. Because on the one hand Dan earlier in the show in and in the book you you say that one of the ways that you're defining this class warriors by degree of college education that there's this college educated gated managerial elite and then a non college educated working class Group of Americans as well so. That's a pretty simple simple bifurcation here but then later in the conversation you kinda rejected other ways to to look at groups being overly simplistic so I'm not AH. I can't really quite beaten in my book. I argue for a three way class conflict. That is the working. Classes is split in Western democracies between the mostly white not exclusively white native working class in the immigrants in their descendants their immediate descendants And this is a political divide as we discussed earlier. it it's also way class divine because they tend to be in different occupations Different parts of the country. The immigrants I mentioned tend to be concentrated in the big big expensive hub hub cities rather than in the less expensive more working class exurbs in suburbs in rural areas. News In so you know that that that's one of the sources of great tension and it permits unscrupulous politicians whether they're Demagogic populists or members of the establishment to a pit these different groups within the working class against it's teach other Playing up the cleavages in races one but also religion and nationality and in region. These cleavages That politicians can use to play different groups against each other so then in this framework though. Where does that leave working class African Americans? They sound like they're completely forgotten. This this framework well working class African Americans as I point out in the book are at this point. Mostly suburban. So there's this Kind of fifty years out of date Assumption that urban means African American the vast majority of African the Americans in two thousand twenty are high school educated working class. They live in relatively inexpensive suburbs and exurbs And the the great division there politically and and it's the deepest to vision among ethnic groups in the United States is African Americans vote like ten percent Republican in about ninety percent democratic. That goes all the way back to Goldwater into the opposition of conservative Republicans have liberal Republicans to the Civil Rights Act and also to the fact that for decades afterwards Republicans did in to some extent. Still you know. Made kind of coded appeals to race. But I think it's a meth and again this one criticize idea of non whites as a generic group to say that well American in politics is as divided along is completely polarized along racial lines. The the Black White Division between Democrats and Republicans is is is the most extreme the Asian Americans. It's much less Divided they favor the Democrats now But but it's nothing like ten percent percent ninety percent And as I mentioned repeatedly Hispanic Americans are about a quarter two third consistently support Republicans publicans. And you know it's not fifty fifty but also it's not extreme polarization and the reason I asked that question is because as you described him you're talking about a mostly white white working class that's potentially being pitted against either new immigrants or first or second generation immigrants. You saw you saw that as as the as a one place where a wedge can be driven by demagogic leaders as as you said just exactly. Yeah it just makes me. It made me wonder though again. We can't we can't we can't forget that there is a there are millions of Americans who fall under the broad rubric of of African American Working Class as well. I'm just wondering how they fit into your bigger picture here about what this class war is and how to how we get out of it well. My solutions included rebuilding Collective bargaining organized labor which has trains racial In it would benefit the most recent immigrants as well all has the most old stock white poor in Appalachia that is if we could rebuild Collective bargaining and labor power You you know when I talk about rebuilding the power of civic organizations including churches You have to remember African Americans tend to be more church churchgoing and religious. The whites particularly college educated whites in somewhat more socially conservative. So you know what I've been criticized for neglecting the interests of African Americans with this on trade unions in churches. It's puzzling to me. Because the two greatest civil rights leaders of the Twentieth Century Eight Phillip Randolph. In Dr Martin Luther King Junior were respectively and a labor union leader the a Phillip Randolph founded and led the Railway Porters Union and a church pastor. Dr King Well. Let's go to the callers. Let's go to James. Is Calling from Wausau Wisconsin James. You're on the there. Yeah Hi I've been in the organized. Labor for forty two years started fresh out of high school at Nineteen years old making eight eight dollars and twenty six cents an hour back in nineteen seventy seven with pension and healthcare. And I've seen I've seen it. Go through Carter. Reagan nineteen once Reagan. You know it kind of the neo liberals got in there kind of went downhill you know and chipped away at us more and more and I think the that so much The were against raise raise. We're not we're not racist one bit and I think we all this is America. We'll have equal opportunity and It seems it's it's it's the corporate structure and you know we don't mind a person getting richness country. Make as much money as you want. Just don't hurt others still take advantage of others while you get get there. That's what we don't like in this country and we need you know we. We need show dignity respect and to the Working 'cause it's essential central part of society you know an occurs central part two and caught up in James. It looks like I'm so sorry ready. Get to jump in your bills. Like we're we're losing your call here but Michael Lind. James provides us the G- The perfect segue to talk about sort of how you advise vise getting out of this class war and let's let's spend some time focusing on labor in particular because all the numbers absolutely showed that for forty fifty years. We've had a consistent reduction in the share of wealth in this country. Going to labor right. I mean that's that's is kind of beyond question now but how. So how do we then move towards. What essentially you call a tripartite system of sharing wealth and power if we have so so many lawmakers so many laws both at the federal and state level And even his industry all Paul now after fifty years built in a way that makes it very hard to grow the power of labor. Well that's absolutely right. There's a more or less direct correlation in. And even some you know intellectually honest conservatives in Memphis between inequality and labor union membership the United States and inequality is skyrocketed as Private Sector Labor Union membership has collapsed to almost six percent now in the new class where I argue that The there's no way to save the existing enterprise bargaining system system of collective bargaining that the US inherited from the new deal in the nineteen forties. Just too difficult to unionize. Every plant can't every of firm business by business by business where unionization has taken root in endures in Europe and other other countries is where you have sectoral bargaining that is you have all representatives of all of the employers in the sector all of the Labor in the sector maybe sometimes consumers public interest advocates as well get together negotiate minimum wages benefits working hours appropriate appear to that sector. And there's a kind of a minor renaissance. It's very hopeful Obviously a small In this approach today with support a both from maverick conservatives like or in Cass who was brownies chief economic adviser also many progressives like those of the Roosevelt Institute the toot In New York who have Put forth some interesting ideas about so called Alta Labor Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York recently revived in old a nine hundred thirty institution the wage board To have this kind of sexual bargaining in the case of fast food workers. So you're not going to undo half a century of corporate assaults on labor overnight But if you look at the polls it's very encouraging Majority City of Americans as not Republicans. Interestingly as well as Democrats now we'll tell pollsters they think Labor's play organized labor plays a useful role in this. Is this changed since the great recession. why I wonder 'cause nobody has that changed? We've also heard we're hearing more and more like the elite of owed. The economic elite billionaires say well maybe capitalism as we know. It isn't quite working for most people right. I'm not an important in part after you after you ask them why they think that now it's because they're scared they're scared now that that people are willing to sort of vote in ways that may not they may not necessarily approve. We've ever may lead lead us down further down. The road of a negative form of populism. Is that fear enough to bring all these people back to the bargaining eating table to to rethink or think through some new models as you've just described to us well. It certainly helps John. F Kennedy's father. Joseph Kennedy The Wall Wall Street financier was asked in the nineteen thirties why he supported Franklin Roosevelt in the new deal and he said you know. I'd give up half of my fortune if I were allowed to keep the other half so I'm not looking to a great moral reformation on the part of the lead but enlightened self interest in the realization realization that to preserve some of their privileges. They're going to have to make some concessions to the people below them now. I think the big divide that we have to keep our our eyes on when it comes to affluent people enrich people rethinking whether capitalism is working for the restaurant is There's always been a tendency assuming the rich in the United States going back in Carnegie to say yes it's true inequality is terrible but the way to deal with it is through charity that that is you know so even kind of indirect charity. I would argue ideas about universal basic income or like this will simply have a small number knbr people who can get most of the gains from economic growth but then we'll tax them and we'll give everybody a thousand dollars a month or something like that historically Labor br activists in unions In both Europe and America have opposed basic income Ideas because they see it as a form of charity mediated by the state. They think there's nothing wrong with working and in Including it the jobs that are mostly created now in the United States which are in retail tale leisure hospitality in home healthcare. There's no reason those should not be well paying jobs And they need to be upgraded. Hadn't paid better but but that would be preferable at least that's the typical social democratic pro-labor view rather than just have people working low wage dead in John's in have the governments in the check. Every month Michael Lind. You're the.

"But White Catholic sixty four percent of them voted for Donald. Trump is there any any any conclusion to be drawn from that will yes I it reinforces that they now Asus of geography geography. I think voting loading in my book the New Class One where I argue that the basic party structure that is emerging in the North America in Western Europe. You have the hub cities where a upper middle class white professionals managers tend to be concentrated pursuing their trades. You in some cases you have old stock. Native minorities like African Americans in those same cities. But also that's where for most of the jobs for recent immigrants are who tend to be unskilled Some of them are very skilled but Performing Service jobs in these big expensive cities like New York and London in Boston. Because that's where the money is in and they're largely doing services in some cases they're literally servants for for the affluence College educated class of so. That's that's why these are immigrants magnets you know. They're not a whole lot of May jobs in in dog Walker Johnson Working Class. You know suburban and small town communities so I think you have to look at the whole picture of what the occupations saw what the ethnic groups are and what the classes rather than just look at single characteristics taken out of context. We're talking with Michael Lind. His new book is.

"Do you see a politics of anger on the rise in the United States across Western in democracies. What can we do about it? Now Michael Lind. There's a lot to to dig into with your book. But there's just have one question about this the educational educational divide because it is so important in terms of how you're looking at who the combatants are if I could put it that way in in this new class war that you're right about Because because I was looking at a pew study of verified voters from the two thousand sixteen election here in the United States And they've found and that of the folks who voted for Hillary Clinton All of them across races that twenty eight percent of those folks had a high school degree or less of those who voted for president trump. Thirty four percent had a high school degree or less six point. Difference there which actually again across races isn't as big as one might expect given the kind of Discontent and drivers that you're talking about will. My argument is not that one one party represents the working class the other delete obviously there. Racial ethnic and regional in religious divides in particularly in the new class war. I talk about the division between immigrants and Native minorities on the one hand who tend to vote increasingly as allies of the hub city professional class. The native White Professional Class Against on the other side Conservative -servative populist parties which representing mostly non exclusively white native working class. So they're deep. You Know Enduring Racial Divisions Part of that I explained in by the fact that If you look at particularly these de industrialized regions you have the older manufacturing working in class and their neighbors have since downward mobility as their economies local regional economies have been devastated by globalization and by other change range if you're an immigrant Whether to the United States or Britain or Germany even if you were paid fairly low wages with low benefits in many cases you're better off you know and you can aspire for a better life for your yourself and your descendants so My my argument is not that are present class President Party politics is going to be aligned along class if if that happened then the working glass party would win every single election because it's the overwhelming majority of the population. So then if that's not what your argument it what is your argument in the affirmative. Then well my argument is that we are going to be trapped in a doom loop between a kind of what I call. Technocratic Neil liberalism a sort of insider politics which is typically bipartisan. He was represented by the so called Third Way of Bill Clinton and Tony Blair which overlapped enormously when it came to policies towards trade immigration regulation unions? It overlapped with the Economic conservatism of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. In so you know. That's that's one poll and at the other extreme you get figures like Donald Trump like a Nigel Farraj in Britain more than Boris Johnson. Boss Johnson's more of a mainstream figure. Matteo Salvini demagogic populist in Italy early in In the in the book that both technocratic Neo Liberalism and populism are two roads to hell we don't I wanna take either road and what we want is to restore what I call democratic pluralism something like the new deal in the postwar United States and its equivalents abroad. So that's where your book starts right and exploration in in terms of the conditions that brought about the new deal so walk us through there. What what What lessons Ah Should we should. We be particularly tuned to. I mean you call it. The the prelude the payload to the new deal being the first class war. That's right what I'm calling the new in class war now is actually the second class war The classes being industrial workers and service workers classes which generally exist in large scale before the nineteenth century industrial revolution in the managerial elite. Which succeeded the older so-called bourgeois elite of small-scale small-scale capitalists owner operators that that is the managers of big firms as well as a big government bureaucracies big nonprofits Largely intially as a result of the need to mobilize the Western democracies in World War Two to defeat Germany and its allies the US Britain After nine hundred forty five other Western democracies imposed A class piece political scientists holiday holiday settlement that lasted for about thirty or forty years after nineteen forty five in Corporations were compelled to share power often reluctantly timidly with the labor unions through institutionalized negotiations You had universal suffrage For the first time why after World War Two by the nineteen sixties with the dismantling of racist restrictions on voting in the south And so you had add these institutions that empowered working class people of all races To the extent that that had not been the case before nineteen forty five and increasingly. I argue that it has not been the case since the one thousand nine hundred ninety nine two thousand and we also had at the same time. You know the the rise of Fascism in Europe right so there was an immediate Example of sort of the one of those polls that you were talking talking about that one presumes the United States did not want to head towards. Well that's absolutely right in in the new class war I I argue that however important grassroots mobilizations from blow are you need to have reformist elements of the national establishment rush moment Support those efforts whether they're civil rights efforts whether it's a pro union efforts in the interest of the nation and and those reformist elements of the national elite usually have the most success when there's some kind of external enemy whether it was the fascist dictatorships in world war two or the Soviet Union during the Cold War The reformist then argue to big business for example that that you have to restrain yourself. You can't just crush labor right. We need to have in an alternate in wartime you President Roosevelt for example for President Truman. We try to restrain labor union. Saying you know we'll we'll protect your interests but we can't have strikes disrupting war production so so So what are the lessons of history that In periods when the external threat fades as it did for a decade or two to after the Cold War then the the inhibitions on the powerful and particularly on on employers on business to restrain themselves and not on just to crush the working class. Those inhibitions Feta's will well. Let's go to our callers. Gyms calling from Gatlinburg Tennessee. Jim You're on the air. Hello MAGNA I haven't read Mr Lind's book but I've I've tried to Imbibe as much as soon as arguments that I as I can't secondhand and it appears to me that Mr Limbaugh is conflicting the idea of the educational or cultural elites with that of the economic elites and thereby thereby giving an inappropriate Cover or even excuse for the motivations of trump voters which are really are much more base and and undignified to that And really are motivated by racial religious cultural anxieties at the prospect of changing America. Aw I see. Mr Linden's workers being somewhat in the vein of the media's habit since the election of grossly over diagnosing the role of economic anxiety in turning people out to vote for trump. Well Jim Thank you for your call Michael in. Would you like to respond to him. Well Yeah with a question. If a all trump voters in for that matter voters populists in Europe had a moral conversion version tomorrow and became completely anti-racist would the would only one party govern. Aw in every democracy. It's a serious question. I was on a panel with Michael Kazin in with a EJ Dion in Washington. Sometime go when they said well. The only motive of trump voters is racism and then they generalize that to Republican voters general. So I asked my friends. Michael Kazin Jason and JV. On and I'm not a Republican critical the Republicans. I said he said you really your theory that. If racism disappeared tomorrow the Democratic Party would would win one hundred percent of elections at whole levels that no one has any motive other than hating non white people not to vote for for Democrats. And I'm afraid I'm sorry I think this is a superficial partisan a explanation. Obviously as I've discussed there are racial and ethnic divine. Hey this within working the working class between natives and immigrants. I discussed that in detail in my book but simply reducing populism to hatred. It implies that you know There are no other possible. Motives including concern about deindustrialization concern about Your religious religious values it's a mini Progressives tend to assume that people can be serious about abortion If if you're a devoutly religious Catholic Catholic Protestant and you believe abortion is murder. You may agree with the Democrats on one hundred percent of other issues. But you're gonNA vote against them so I reject this idea that there's a single explanation while I I say in the book of ethnic and racial anxiety is always as part of human behavior. But it's one of many different motives so jim thank you for that call. Michael and I don't think we will. I agree we should not ever be so reductive. The we presume. That one factor animates any particular American. Right you have my complete agreement on that but on this question one of a race I do want to dig in a little bit more here because again and as it as it plays out or played out in the two thousand sixteen election because that's just sort of think the framework that most of us can easily access here amongst non college graduate voters in America. Oh okay all non college voters in America who cast about Twenty Sixteen for Non College Graduate Whites Sixty four percent of of them voted for Donald Trump but amongst non college graduate minorities or non whites seventy seven percent of them voted for Hillary Clinton. I mean they are almost most exactly mirror images of each other. Well what's what's explanation for. That will let me correct you there. There's no such thing as non whites this is not a group. This is a statistical abstraction there are African Americans there are Latino Hispanic Americans And their Asian Pacific Civic Islanders. You don't get any data if you just say. Non Whites combined where you're combining affluent Indian Americans with recent in Guatemala immigrants. This is meaningless statistic now if you want to look at a meaningful statistic. That's relevant to this. Ask Yourself why did twenty nine percent of Hispanic Americans vote for Donald Trump in. Why do the Republicans get between a quarter and a third of the Hispanic vote in every election I don't I don't see how that can be explained Are these health heating Hispanics right or they anti Hispanic Hispanics now you know so clearly The as I if you look Britain Black in Middle Eastern voters. Be a any voters if they say in the UK cast one third of the votes for Brexit so brexit was just white racism and anti immigrant to them and then why did a third of black Middle Eastern voters of support Brexit. I can't answer that question but I do. Do want just digging a little further here when you say that you just can't. We can't talk about non whites as a group. But stickle abstraction by I'm I'm quoting some numbers here from from pugh and I guess they're trying they were. They were attempting to say well. I mean for our white voters in statistical subtraction as well Michael Lind yes I would. I would argue that. A lot of this Political Science is based on A two few categories so for example the the term non Hispanic White excludes people of Latin American descent sent who are who call themselves white. But you know when they answer the census it includes. Groups has different as arab-americans As Norwegian Americans you know in Polish Americans now to lump Arab Americans Polish Americans Norwegian Americans into a generic non Hispanic white group. You get some interesting data from that but it will be largely useless so I think what we need to do is in the good. Ah Pollsters do this. They break this down. I mean learning. How a Catholic American you know European Americans in? Let's say the Rust Belt vote tells you something but lumping those voters together with old stock. You know southern Baptists in Mississippi and then whatever the average of those two groups has is some number. I just think you being confused. PUGH has those numbers to by by religious denomination nomination. Actually I mean this is fascinating and the reason why I wanNA explore. This is because I really think it's important for us to when we were considering your whole thesis here to understand who we're talking about right so puce as amongst Catholics self identified Catholics in America who also identify as Hispanic so Catholic Hispanics seventy eight percent percent of them said they voted for Hillary Clinton.

"I say all all this because our guest today has thought deeply about why populism is bubbling up across many Western democracies now and really what to do about it so so this hour on point demagogues and populists and the reasons they sometimes take over politics and you can join us. Do you see populism awesome on the rise across Western democracies here in the United States. Does it make sense. What's driving it? And if so how do do we take care of the underlying issues. That are driving a rise in populism well. Michael Lind joins us today. He's a professor at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas Austin. His new book is the new class war saving democracy from the managerial elite. We have have an excerpt of it at some point. Radio Dot Org Michael Lind welcome to on point. Thank you for having me so first of all just sort of. Lay Out your argument if if you could. What do you think you know are the main drivers of what seems to be a rise in populism in some Western democracies when when you look at societies in which you have demagogic populists claiming to be the champions of the disfranchised masses against instant insider power elite? They tend to have certain characteristics for example the American south between the civil war and the civil rights revolution some of the big cities in the North and the early twentieth century when a lot of European immigrant populations and also African American migrants were disfranchised Effectively even if they formally had the vote You know in many countries around the world including in central in Latin America and what you see is a lack lack of institutions that can incorporate in amplify the voices of ordinary people on in the past Sti- argue in my book the New Class War in the Mid Twentieth Century United States Those were represented by trade unions by by local a political party networks machines in buying churches and synagogues which were more powerful in our less secular society fifty years ago as these institutions `institutions that incorporated high school educated working class. People have atrophied power has shifted upwards to the university educated educated managerial and professional elite. Not as a result of conspiracy particularly but just because that class the class to which I belong Tends to be much better organized in networked than than those below so It creates these conditions of alienation and isolation in which which people either tune out of politics or. They cast protest votes often for demagogic populist. So of course the institutions as though the amongst the ones that you named religious institutions a local party machines labor organizations. They've all atrophied atrophy for different reasons though some of them. I think you could arguably say have atrophied because The elite wanted that to happen. I'm thinking particularly of organized labor. Yeah that's absolutely right. If you look at religion there's a long term trend towards secularization in the Western world ended some more advanced in Europe than it is in the United States but the US is catching up. And that's a long term social trend and I don't think the elitist minded in particular but as you point out The elites. It's not only in the Republican Party in the late twentieth century and but also so called New Democrats like Bill Clinton were hostile or indifferent and best just to a labor unions and as I point out in the class war the used a global labor arbitrage that shutting down factories in the US and then opening up new wins to exploit a lower wage labor abroad to devastate much of the industrial workforce in America. And you see the same pattern in Europe Europe. I think one thing that you can't overlook is the heartlands of populism in the US. In Britain in Germany and France they tend to be de industrialized regions. where the local working class? It's not entirely white working class. But disproportionately white was represented by Social Democratic parties as of the centre-left in by trade unions in his those of disintegrated The vacuum has been filled by right wing populist so I I think let's step back here for a second and and get some definitions from you in order to help better understand the argument that you're making here So first of all when when we're talking about the Groups of people working class who may be turning towards populism. How are you defining the classes here? We'll well I use an educational rather than financial definition of class status To to my mind the greatest cleavage in modern Western societies is is between the roughly one third of people who have a bachelor's degree or above you'll eat about ten percent of people have advanced a graduate or professional all degree in about seven out of ten Americans in the numbers of similar in Western Europe. WHO HAVE NO education beyond high school or the equivalent and and this is is a real class difference because the bosses the people who give orders the people who run things particularly large organizations that dominate the economy Konami the government the non-profit sector the media sector? The bosses have usually not only college diplomas but advanced professional degrees. So we're looking at education there as being The the bifurcating metric okay and then so when we also say managerial elite Are they geographically located. I mean you you said that is probably. It's not just one party or the other who are the managerial elite will in the new class war. I argue that this political geography that we see on both sides of the Atlantic where you have the central parties which increasingly represent the college educated elite along with minorities in the immigrants tend to be clustered into what I call the ABC's These are large cities connected to the World Economy New York San Francisco Boston Austin increasingly a London Paris They're surrounded by countryside as by low density suburbs in X. firms where most of the local working class last non white as as well as white Tends to live simply because they can't afford to live and work in the rather expensive hub cities. So do you have a situation in which the elites if they're not born into these hub cities The talented upwardly mobile people who who get a expensive education tend to migrate to them Wherever they're born in the country so I think one of the things that I'm struggling with I'm trying to really understand the lessons to draw from your book Michael is when we use the words elite when talking about College Agitated Americans. I mean college educated American span of very large and broad group of people. I mean you as you know. There's been some pushback to your book amongst reviewers there's one of them in particular New York Times said well we're talking about schoolteachers too. Who are college educated? Are they part of this managerial elite. We'll look I'm talking about the major structure obviously there are exceptions if you're a Barista with a PhD in Icelandic literature. You're not part of via economic or social elite conceivable. You could be a high school dropout in you win a lottery ticket and becoming millionaire so it's not the exceptions that I'm talking about. I'm talking about the rule and the rule is that people with institutional and Organizational Authority overwhelmingly have college credentials credentials. And not only that if you look at the top ten percent of the US in terms of education those with graduate and professional degrees They they have about half of the wealth in the United States. The other half is divided among the ninety percent below them in the top one percent of the super rich so you know we can play Semantic Games about you know poor professors in rich ditch diggers. But I don't I don't think that's relevant main point. Yeah I mean I asked you about that though because when you when we're talking about the possibility of a new class war right which is the the title of Your Book. I think again for me trying to understand the lessons to dry. It's important to understand who. Who is the war between because my sense is that there's actually quite a large group of Americans in the middle of what of what this war may be shaping up to be well? One of the views of the centre-left is that the so-called pm. See the professional managerial class. How you know? These tend to be academics independent professionals lawyers and so on is a distinct class from the rich from the billionaires. I'm I'm out in the new class war Almost all of the billionaires we have in the United States there are a few who were born into great wealth but the vast S. majority of rich people Silicon Valley and Wall Street. We're not born super-rich but they were born into college. Educated households. So to my mind that that's an interesting debate but I still think the basic divide is between the college educated in the seventy percent or so who lack those credentials Detroit. So let me briefly ask you do you see or did you see A version of this class war being played out in terms of how Oh people voted in the two thousand sixteen election here in the United States. Will you see both in the United States and are in abroad. Trump didn't didn't particularly well and the Republicans have been doing better and better with a high school educated white working class Americans but also with nearly a third of of Hispanic Americans who've been trending towards the Republican Party you see the same thing with the Brexit vote of single clearest qualification a link brexit voting was ones educational status. Well there's a lot more to dig into When.

This is why you're single every highlight a different dating topic this week's episode is online dating by the dumbers emmers. Yes also on the line talking about what's new in dating news. A writer gets creative trolling scammers on tinder and a man hacks tinder then we're diving into the mailbox to answer your listener questions including a listener who is tired of having weird encounters on dating apps and another who wants the guy she seeing to delete his APPS APPS but first we want to welcome this week's guest she is a comedic actress and the Creator playwright of the off Broadway show date me in okay cupid experiment. Please welcome Robin Lind Norris Hi everyone thanks so much for having me. Thank you for coming on the show so we had scheduled robin to be on the show when she was in New York and then I got sick as I've talked about many times on the show so this is our first time we've ever had a guest do this remotely Robin is in. La and we are in New York. We've had a rule that I guess have to be in the studio but I cancelled on Robin last minute when I went to the hospital and now we're so excited to have her back because angelides at a little title. BFF Date Ni- and saw the show and we loved it. We had so much fun. Oh my God we had so much fun and you know. I don't know you know you never know what you're going to get with. The show we walked out of there and we were like that was amazing. I wish we had written it so the biggest compliment thank you yes your show is based on an experiment you did where you create in multiple fake profiles of quote Unquote dateable people and then interacted with it's the real people on Okay cupid through these profiles. Tell us a little bit about that. What sparked that idea and did you know at the time you'd be using it for comedy comedy material later okay so it's a slightly different what's in the current show than what actually happened in real life so I'll give you the real life story because I think it's pretty interesting? The whole thing was a total accident I had just moved to. La from Chicago and I absolutely absolutely love L. A. Now it was very lonely when I first moved there and I had gone through a number of awful dating experiences where I had pretty much just was flatlined given up. That was the state I was in and my friend. Lori called me on the phone one day and just said hey are you on okay cupid. I made a profile sal. Would you check out my profile see if I wrote anything weird and this is actually pretenders to a little bit of history like this show came about in Los Angeles than we were in Chicago and now we're in New York so in. La this was pretender and I was very much of the I'm old fashioned. I'M GONNA meet my soulmate in person kind of the state of mind so I was like no. I'm not on okay cupid but I was like I'll help her out so you have to have a profile to look at other people's profiles so I was like fine fine. I'll take five minutes and fill out a crazy cat lady. It was just the first stereotypical thing that came to my mind of course anyone who's yeah exactly so for for anyone who's on okay cupid the reason I like that dating APP is you get to write a little mini bio and you can kind of present yourself however you want you know and and I think psychologically so fascinating at once. I got into the experiment to read what people were doing now. This is my first time so I just answered the questions in all caps you know like like on purpose. I love kitties. If you don't love Kitties then you won't love me Beep Boop beep up like I was making robot sound on a typical Friday night. I'm playing with my kids of course like so stupid right and I like and men doubt it yeah exactly I forgot about it. Then went to check out lorries profile went to dinner with her and a couple of girlfriends two days later and hundreds of messages hundreds hundreds of the typical you see some of this in the show like the typical sexual innuendoes because Katie you know right and then an but then guys talking in all meows but in grammatical paragraphs which so good so hard I was dying and then I started to get reflective because I was like cold on this crazy cat lady is more popular online than I am in real life so what's wrong with me and that's where the idea came came from the original show was called UN dateable and I took it to my friend Bob Ladwig. We were working on some stuff and I was like hey this thing happened. What if we did an experiment and we just created and what we think are unbeatable or wacky personalities and put them across the country and track the result and see what happens so I knew it was funny any I didn't know it would turn into the show that it turned into and that I would also go on this like heartfelt journey because I also got really worried about these people and we we can talk more about this later but it definitely wasn't a hey? Let's just make fun of these idiots wake because you're talking to real humans and who you really don't WanNa make fun of them or hurt their feelings and they might you know of course there's some guys that might have been jerks and being like hey put some joke but you know some of them might have a real connection Russian right yeah exactly. Everybody's looking for something right so it's like I think you know I'm very overly sensitive Tiv- empathetic person so bob and I did set up rules early on like we were like we're not going to interact with people unless they find characters funny and reach out to us. I we're not going to you you know meet anybody in person or if I felt like people were actually literally into me or my characters I was getting. I'd yeah in a nice way. I tried. I think nice like I'd be like Oh. You're so nice. I just started seeing someone but this is before I even knew what ghosting was but I could never ghost anyone because because I had it happened to me and I was so obsessed so we had thirty eight characters I spiralled. I was like I have to get back to everyone. That's a lot of characters to keep track of feelings a lot of feelings exactly as someone who online dated and use okay keep it a lot I am totally not surprised that that you had men rolling into the craziest profile. DM's because like there's a lot of wackos out there Did you learn anything that surprise you well. Yeah I learned one kind of what you said like. It really is reflective real live so there is a lot of sexual innuendos. UN does and people being kind of gross and stuff for the most part with this though I think because our characters were so specific and unique people were super into it so so I didn't actually get a lot of haters where I think normally you do get that lake. Why don't you write me back? Bitch kind of thing like I most people were like this is the funniest thing I've ever seen and they were really playing along and that surprised me more than I thought it would and then as I did research because I did a lot of research search we were developing the show I found out that the more specific you are in your profile better chance you have of finding a match so when you water it down and you just say like I love to laugh ah you try to you know I love to travel. It's everybody's saying the same thing and you saw that part in the show where we categorize people into online on dating species because I found all these patterns of people like everyone thinks they're being original and they say the same thing as everybody else set always drew my crazy yeah yeah yeah I think even with ours show this is what you're single. When we're doing our sketch we would have the most specific jokes and then we would find out that people are like Oh my God I relate so much to this whatever specific thing I can't think of a example right now but the point is is that even the most specific things when it comes to dating are universal like that's I think what you what you realize but yes as far as the lack of originality in profiles you touched on something that I loved in the show which was on okay cupid they the things that you can't live without people think they are being so funny when they're like food water air and then everybody else is up at one hundred percent right in fact? We actually burn that suggestion because you know I did the show in Chicago for three years so done that a lot of times and it's like the I would say one out of ten people say that and you're like they. I know they did it online because I saw it and then when we sorry I'm people who are listening. Don't realize we have some Improv in the show and we interview people based on some of these questions so when we asked their six things a Lotta Times they go water air and you were like we have to be like that's really great. You get that all the time. Let's get a little more specific ray. You also notice the very odd trend of people referencing the Zombie Apocalypse Lot which I notice as well. Oh my God. I'm glad you noticed that too. yeah I call them. In the species I call them the walking dread because they can't resist talking about about the Zombie Apocalypse and end the end of days and they've got their kids and like it's interesting yeah in the show you imply hi that you met your husband via. One of these fake profiles is that true. Is that how you met well then that's a great question or is that little your creatives gives creative stretch. It's a little of a creative stretch. I will say it was a good one almost nine. Thank you ninety five percent of the show. I was so adamant I was like I wanted to be a hundred represent true. Maybe you know people are like okay for storytelling purposes yet so I in the show. Yes I meet a character that ends up being my husband has been that didn't I didn't meet him online. The character is based on him. You know he's called Math Club historian eighty two and that's like a joke that you know my husband's also a comedian and and so it's based off of him and his spirit but I did meet him at the tail end of this experiment so it was kind of a weird your thing where I was completely shut down not open to online dating went down this whole journey were then I was like everyone so human and I actually did start to feel Jio for all these people as human beings and then I met my husband in real life right once I feel like I did the

Mount Everest deaths blamed on rush for summit
"On Everest. It's fascinating. I you know, I must have seen a documentary about Mount Everest as a kid. I think I actually saw it at the museum of science and industry over. They have that big movie theater, and the big theater, that's shaped like has the circular am I thinking of the right the right. I think you are. Yeah, I forget what it's called, but seen a couple of movies there as a kid, and so just a few basic stats by the end of the statistics that they have are only up to the latest. I've seen through two thousand ten I'm trying to get more updated stats, but thousands of people have now climbed but the rate of people dying. Is about five and every one hundred which is a, that's how people over the the length of a year, or at least the, the length of a climbing season. Well, they say for everyone the overall rate from the beginning of when this started now. Okay, they say that about five out of every one hundred people that try to go to the top amount Evers parish, which is a lot. And if you think that it's getting safer. It's not. And so we've been talking about this traffic jam which of all places on the top amount ever since now where I had expected, but it's in this quote unquote, death zone and. It's this traffic jam specifically, so four P. This is updated story as of today. Four more people died on Friday. So just yesterday and two of them, they know for sure are because of this traffic jam and apparently so Nepal issued a record number of firm. It's this year. Can you guess how much cost to get one of these permits? Roger badesch, just any guest individual. Yeah. I'd say about two thousand dollars. Jess any guesses. How much does it cost to get a to get helped up to the top of Mount Everest? Ooh. Seven thousand eleven thousand bucks. Wow. That's the that's how much it costs to get up to the top of Everest got to get a permit, and they say that these permits bringing a, a real good amount of money for the impoverished country of Nepal, which is great. I'm glad that they're getting some money into honestly, these, these sherpas who do this these climbers. I mean, they deserve it if their shepherding. Yep. They're, they're taking on the risk as well. But Gary Raji kind of alluded to this. It's a very small window a suitable weather before the short season ends and the weather hasn't been great during this short season. So these bottlenecks, and we're talking hundreds of climbers waiting to achieve for many, although perhaps, not for Paris, the ultimate in mountaineering. So the latest four deaths on Friday taking the toll from the deadly week on the overcrowded peak to eight in to Indians and in Nepali, and on the Nepal side in Australia on the way down Michigan the top you get up there. And then on the way down you die. Yeah, I think a lot of people have this image of light people falling shortly that has contributed to some of the deaths. But it's, it's the weakened state. Your body is in from the deprivation of oxygen. Sure. And it's not a it's not like you go like you've been saying you're waiting in line. So that lack of oxygen just it's not a quick thing. You're sitting there in it. Yes. And you have one the part the story I saw earlier in the week was. Somebody who had been this was like a life goal of theirs, or they had had some kind of disease, and they recover and this was something they'd been training for and waiting for and saving up for her. And, and he got to the top passed out and fell. Oh my gosh. And that was it. You know, Don. That's the one I saw. Yeah. We've also seen some of the guides pass away as well. Yeah. American was life was claimed Donald Lind, cash, fifty five years old collapsed to the summit, he was taking photographs and you're saying another one died descending after reaching the top already organization. Organizers say they're trying to figure out a way to do this, but imagine you pay eleven thousand dollars. You get all the way up to see for me, which I'm of the belief that none of that is worth, of course, dying. And I think if you were to ask these people man to man woman to woman they would say the same thing. But once you're up there. What do you do? You can't turn around. So you're you're stuck in this game. No escalator. Yeah. What do you do? Also just stuck in this battle in your brain. That's like you've come this far. Yeah. Exactly. And you see the top like here's the thing. If you get twenty nine thousand and twenty feet instead of twenty nine thousand twenty nine you've got to get those last nine feet. You. Yeah. I mean like I can see why someone would risk their life to get to that point. And wait those last thirty feet for me. I'm like looking at it. And this photo showing this line of hundreds of people, I mean, you're almost there for me, I would turn around take a selfie say, click made it close enough, close enough, and turn around and get the heck out of there. You know what I would've done? It was kind of, like I when I went to the theater with Bridget, the other night is like so from the seat, I took picture of the stage and I, I wrote how close are we this close? So I would have turned around with the group behind me going, that's higher than me. And. Say and take a picture with, you know, a selfie with them behind me say, look at how close I am. And then just walked down is what you've done. I'm done. Twenty eight thousand nine hundred ninety five feet. Exactly out of twenty nine thousand twenty nine right. You've done it. And if I've stood in line now for ten minutes, I'm out of there, you know, move side, come down excuse me. Come down by. Yeah. Part of the issues at the summit such a narrow thing, too, is that they have one rope. So the people going up our have share a rope with the people going down. And that cannot be an easy manure to go through. And again, we're not trying to make light of the situation but it's just it's, it's, it's incredible what people will
