"There's going to be a lot of other discussions, but you have to be very intentional. In those discussions about where you're going at every particular place because it becomes like a puzzle. Because if not people can get lost. And so it's a harder type of interviewing. I have found it to be a much harder type of interview. There's like a performance element of it too because when you're having people walk through a story in the way that you're doing on the show, I'm thinking of not abortion episode that I listened to. There are beats in the story that you need to ask about that you very obviously know already. Right. And it feels like there's a real art of making that feel genuine and not like bullshit. So it's funny, often what we're doing is a little bit of performance in every bit of broadcasting. Unlike this, there's no performance. No performance whatsoever. We are totally no performance at all. It's zero. Nothing. No. But so I've been working with Lisa Tobin, who is formerly of the daily. And she's been helping us launch this podcast. One of the all time greats. One of the all time greats, yes, indeed. And so that it has been an absolute privilege and honor to work with her. I can't even stress that enough. But it's funny. She has this thing that she says, which is, you have to walk into the interview, knowing what you knew before you did all the research. So you're still Lulu, who might know things about whatever abortion and et cetera. But it can't be that you're walking into the interview, knowing all these things that you have had to research in order to be an informed interviewer. Because if not, then you're stepping on the toes of other people's story. And so I struggled to make sense of that. And there are exceptions to that because sometimes you really do have to be like, actually, I know a thing, I'm going to say it. Yeah. Here's the thing I'm going to say. But I do think it helps to kind of take a step back and just let the story unfold with the person telling it. Because if not, then, you know, you're doing a thing which we do a news a lot, which is say, okay, I'm going to give you all this information right now. And then let the other person say the thing. There are times when you got to do it because that's what it's going to be best for this story, and there's other times where you can't fake it. Yeah. And so that's it. It sounds like a simple concept, this idea of where do people's ideas come from. This wasn't my idea for the show, by the way. This idea existed, and they wanted me to do it. But it's been really hard. It's been tricky. Are you excited for tomorrow? Yeah. It goes out into the world. But something else someone told me, which I think is true, which is like nobody ever remembers the first episode of anything. Thank God that is true. That's what I mean. The long form podcast. The first episode is a long form podcast. Deeply. I'm going to go back and listen to it. But this is what I mean. I'm excited because it goes out and lives in the world and I've been waiting to go out and do my next thing because a lot of people have been like, hey Lulu, when's your podcast coming out? But I am also cognizant that I wanted to expand and grow and change and be more fully itself..

"You'll hear from all the incredible reporters at Fox, and elsewhere to talk about Congress, taxes, housing policy, midterms, student loan debt, just a huge fruit basket of policy. Help make sense of politics by subscribing to the weeds wherever you get your podcasts. What was that like showing up in Kosovo? Crazy. How old were you? I mean, I was in my late 20s. Like I said, I started late in this job. So I was like 28. And it blew my mind. It blew my mind. I had no idea how to function. I didn't know really what I was supposed to be doing, and then also it was just overwhelming. It was refugees poring over the border into Albania, which I had never been to. And I was really struggling to figure out what this was. And what my role as a journalist was. And at the same time, it was incredibly exciting because it felt like all of a sudden that purpose that I had been looking for while I was wandering around. Yeah. You know, it felt pretty clear to me there what my purpose was. Practically speaking, I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to be doing as a journalist, but the big idea behind it, I fully understood, which was I was there to tell and report on what was happening. And to make sure that people understood what really was happening there on the ground. And while that was scary it was also exhilarating. Yeah. It's a weird thing about covering conflict, which is that we wrap ourselves often in the mantle of reflected heroism, I would say, which is we're there to tell a story and amplify the voices and do all these things, and there is real risk to it. That is the driving force of it. There's no question. But I would challenge anyone who does it not to say that they're also is something just incredibly exhilarating about it because it feels so essential and it feels like you are at the heart of something really, really important and it can give you an amazing amount of meaning, especially in the work that you do. And so it just feels like you are at the center of something. Yeah, there's a high to it. There is a high. For sure, it's addictive. More than that, it's addictive. And you chased it for a long time. You know, I don't know that I chased it. I was given it. Like, I did well in that assignment. And then I got sent to Columbia in the middle of their Civil War, and then Afghanistan happened, and I got a call and they said, do you want to go to Kabul? Was there ever one of those things that you said no to? No, no, never. Never, never. And when you said you did well. What is doing well mean? Yeah. Is that like a thing you can get better at? Yeah. Conflict reporting? Any kind of reporting can't you get better at it? Yes, I think my goodness, the things that I know now and the things that I didn't know then could fill the Grand Canyon. What are those? I mean, what did you learn? How do you get better at that specific type of this work? So I think the way that you get better at that specific work is not about the craft, although that's definitely part of it, and I could talk to you about the craft. But what I would say it's the sensibility, it's in fact the opposite of what you think, which is you learn over time that good conflict reporting is less about the front lines and more about what's happening. Away from the battle and how the forces are shifting in a society. And how the conflict is breaking down certain groups and reconfiguring places. And you kind of learn to figure that out over time and you also, I think, really learn a ton, a shit ton of empathy. I mean, I think at the beginning, it's really overwhelming. It's a sensory overload. And then once you know kind of what you're doing in these spaces, you really learn to kind of focus in on the quieter, literally, less bombastic places. What are happening to the mothers? What are happening behind the closed doors in the village? What is going on that you're not seeing, that's not just playing out in front of you with guns and people trying to blow each other up. And so that for me became part of the draw over time. But I'll be honest with you. I lived in the places that I covered. I didn't just go in and drop in for a couple of weeks and then go back and live in wherever London in New York. I mean, I was living in Iraq for years. I lived in Jerusalem for years, you know? I was in Kabul for a long time, and Latin America also, you know, a different kind of war, but a conflict all the same. So it's a different experience when you're living in a place than when you're dropping in and you can leave. Yeah, I mean, that's part of what I've always struggled to understand about that work is just how you wrapped your head that quickly around dynamics that are that complex. You know, like the parachute in for correspondent things seems almost impossibly hard. It is hard. It is hard and I respect the people who do that work. And I would almost maybe say, I don't know, could it be healthier to not be living in the place that you're covering for years? And it's like completely crazy. There is a pejorative connotation to the parachute journalist, but a lot of the people who do this work are repeatedly going into the same places. They just have families, or they choose to live elsewhere for sanity's sake, that wasn't the kind of experience that I had. You were in particularly interested in insanity. I mean, I suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. I had, I mean, I've been very public about my struggles covering conflict and living in conflict. I mean, the thing that kept me saying for most of it was that I actually had my partner with me. My now husband, my then boyfriend, was also a war correspondent. And so we lived there together. And so I had a measure of stability in having kind of a close relationship, someone who was there to kind of see me through it. I think oftentimes what can happen when you go to these places is that you feel very unmoored from the things that make you you outside of this space. Can you say a little bit more about that? Can you help me understand what that means? Yeah, like what goes away? Oh gosh, everything. If you have to wake up in the morning and the choices that you make are going to decide whether you live or die. It's a really, really, really heavy thing. You know? And I don't say that lightly. It just means like, I have a job to do there, which is covering a war. Covering a war is dangerous. And it's not only I'm risking my life, I am working with other people. Who are from that place. And I'm risking their life. And yet, I still have to do it because that's my job. And so you're having to make these decisions all the time that seems so crazy to anyone else, right? Like you're living your life and most people wake up and decide, hey, am I going to go to Starbucks or am I going to, you know, before I hit the gym and bagel head to work? This morning, yeah. I don't know. And so, but the thing that you're waking up to is like, okay, I have to go report in this place where there has just been an attack and how am I going to get there safely or safely as possible? Who am I going to bring with me? What route am I going to take? I mean, it's just like a whole different series of assessments that you're making..

"Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is romantica. Our woman of the day popularized a mathematical approach to weight loss. In doing so, she transformed modern diet culture, and many of her ideas still permeate society today. Let's talk about the influential doctor Lulu hunt Peters. Lulu hunt Peters was born in 1873 in Maine, but moved to California and her childhood. Not much is known about Lulu's young life, aside from the fact that she struggled with her weight as a child. In 1909, Lulu graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with her doctorate in medicine. After receiving her medical degree, Lulu became the chair of the public health committee for the California women's club federation of Los Angeles. Having a complicated relationship with her own weight, Lulu began experimenting with the ways food and exercise impacted her body. She created a reliable way to understand the amount of calories she was consuming versus burning. A revolutionary framework for the time. Through her own rigorous methods, Lulu lost upwards of 70 pounds. This led Lulu to write about her findings in a diet and health column for the LA times women's pages. And in 1918, Lulu published the book that would make her famous and permanently alter diet culture in America. The book was called diet and health with key to the calories, and it single handedly popularized calorie counting. Lula wrote that, the lack of knowledge of foods was the foundation for those who were either overweight or underweight. Therefore, Lulu went about explaining her own method for calorie counting. How to assess your ideal weight, a metric similar to our modern day body mass index, and a sample diet plan. The book took a historically dry topic and infused it with witty and relatable language directed right at American women. It featured stories of Lulu's own failures in her weight loss journey and included silly names of fake patients. Scattered throughout the book are primitive drawings by Lulu's young nephew. The drawings add both playful and fatphobic imagery to the book. While clearly the work of a child, overweight people are drawn as doddering stick figures with perfectly spherical bodies, whereas people exercising or depicted in the traditional stick figure form. Another problematic element of Lulu's book was the connection she drew between thinness, morality, and beauty. For Lulu, dieting involved self restraint and diligent work. In her eyes, those who failed to keep up these practices simply lacked the willpower to do so. Similarly, she emphasized the desire to be thin, just for the pleasure of being thin. Stating in her book if there is anything comparable to the joy of taking in your clothes, I have not experienced it. At the same time, Lulu's book also advocated for more holistic approaches to monitoring one's diet. She repeatedly warns against dangerous schemes to quickly lose weight. And she dismissed the idea that any food was off limits. Lulu's only limitations were calories. After publishing diet and health with key to the calories, Lulu traveled to the Balkans to work for the American Red Cross. When she returned several years later, she discovered that her book was a hit. In the time since its publication, it's estimated to have sold upwards of 2 million copies. In 1930, Lulu died from pneumonia. Lulu's book is still in circulation, and many of its ideas are just as enduring. Her basic premise that.

And mike says he's never had any better luck back underwater with the tv camera. Mike is waiting for all three villains as they are. Now jumping in the water to steal the pearls but this time one of them has a spear gun. Mike has the tv camera pointed at the pro beds. But there's a problem. The bad guys are coming from the wrong direction and they're not on tv. The ambush mike. Who's only hope is to move maneuver them into the frame of a camera. Chaos prevails as they fight and slash at one. another finally might get them to the pearl beds. The spear gun is fired and strikes the bed.

"Lulu. Um, let's start with the voting bills. Democrats are pushing two of them right now with for the people are taking precedence. There was some hope that there might be a bipartisan compromise on at this past week, But then not so much. What happened? That's right. There were two voting rights vehicles the Democrats are pushing one is that John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would return federal oversight to major changes in local or state voting laws, but the other one before the People Act, which Democrats are going to have a vote on this week in the Senate, this is H R one. This is the one with all kinds of reforms. The Democrats want like automatic voter registration changes to campaign finance laws aimed of disclosing sources of dark money, all things Republicans opposed. But the new development was that Joe Manchin, the centrist Democrat from West Virginia, proposed a slimmed down version of this bill. It would include requiring voter ID, which Republicans support it would also make election Day of federal holiday it would ensure 15 days of early voting. His fellow Democrats accepted this new Version, but Republicans dismissed it out of hand. This is an existential issue for both parties. Republicans feel that almost anything that increases voter access is bad for them. Democrats think anything that restricts voter access is Bad for them. And as you said, this is an example of how the hard part is really starting for Joe Biden, you know, passing a covid relief bill. It was an emergency measure that was relatively easy. Now He's got this really ambitious agenda and a really slim majority in Congress. So it's a real grind. I mean, any mention of a grind is definitely a cue to ask about an infrastructure bill. Update. Well there, there might be some progress. You know, they've been bipartisan negotiations continuing with 10 Republicans they could sign on to this trillion dollars spending bill that would not include tax increases. It's about half of what Biden originally proposed. The key thing for many Democrats is, if they're going to sign on for this compromise, would they be able to get a commitment from centrist Democrats like Joe Manchin, Kirsten cinema and others for a second reconciliation package? Um, possibly $6 trillion that would give them the other things they want. Like funding for climate change human infrastructure like universal pre k elder care, That's the American Jobs Act and the American family plan that would pass through something called reconciliation. We've heard about that a lot Democratic votes only. So that's the two step process that they were hoping to get past a slimmed down version with bipartisan support and then turn to something that would be Democratic votes only. Well, let me ask you. How likely are they to get those, uh, commitments from Kirsten cinema? And you mentioned well, that is unclear because just to get Those Democrats on board. They're going to have to make concessions as well. Mansion has said in the past that he's not against using reconciliation, but he wanted to exhaust all options. First to get a bipartisan bill and we don't know what compromises he would want. At that point, Okay, so the nonpartisan parts of the infrastructure bill could pass with reconciliation. But what about the voting rights bill Because those aren't spending bills and reconciliation only works with spending bills absolutely. Once again with the voting rights bill, we'd be in a situation where the fate of Joe Biden's agenda rests in Joe mansions, hands and what he feels about the filibuster. He's been very adamant he doesn't want to eliminate it or amend it. He believes in bipartisanship and his political brand in Ruby Red West Virginia depends on that. So there is no way that voting rights bill is going to get 60 votes. That's what it takes to break a filibuster. Now Joe Manchin had two things happened recently, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell shot down his compromise on voting rights. He also wasn't so happy that McConnell voted against having a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6th attack on the capital. Does that change his mind? Find on the filibuster. We don't know I kind of doubt it. But the other thing is, it's not just Joe mansion. There are other centrist Democrats who agree with him on the filibuster. Don't want to change it, and we don't know if he changes his mind. Will other centrist Democrats go along? Or will they hold out? No matter what, all eyes on Joe Mansion That's NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Thank you so much. You're welcome. A retired police officer, a former sanitation chief and a 2020 presidential hopeful. Those are some of the candidates hoping to become New York City's next mayor. The city's mayoral primary is on Tuesday, and there are eight people in the running and whomever wins will almost certainly succeed The current mayor, Bill de Blasio.

Carbon pollution actually already exist and how they're getting stuck in the valley death. How can we get them out of this trap.

I am a longtime runner and my attitude about workout clothing is i don't want to have to think about it at all. And that's why. I run in lululemon these days. I work out a lot alone. But i prefer doing it with friends. I have such great memories of really bonding with whoever. I'm running with my friends.

They've passed every test cleared every huddled jumped through every hoop now. All that remains is to unleash them on the wait. What's yes there's one more challenge. They must now cross the valley of death. All new products must pass through here before they reach the market. Many never make it out and sometimes that's okay if they don't work don't feel a need all for any number of other reasons but inventions. That could help address massive global issues. Also face this risk that's because technology's potential isn't the only factor that determines whether it will succeed. The valley of death is especially risky for innovations involving complex physical objects as opposed to software and for those in highly regulated industries like medicine building materials and transportation regulations and other obstacles aren't inherently bad. They're often designed to keep people safe but they do tend to scare off investors and that's what traps good ideas in the valley of gaffe that funding dries up before they can become profitable one of the fields where this problem is most pressing. Today is zero carbon technologies that is central to our future because they will help us eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize our climate but they also have features that make them particularly vulnerable in the valley of death. Let's look why that is and how we can change it. All new technologies must go through a development fans before they can become profitable for zero carbon technologies. The costs of this phase are high. The time lines are long and in spite of the good they can do. Demand is often low because they can require big changes in both infrastructure and consumer behavior for example electric heat pumps don't burn fossil fuels and when you factor in savings on energy use off cost competitive with gas furnaces but only change that heating and cooling systems every few decades direct air capture technologies meanwhile remove co two directly from the atmosphere. We need these technologies to reach our emission goals and several of them have already been proven to work but they're at risk of getting trapped in the valley of death because they're expensive. This creates a vicious cycle because the best way to know a costs is by well practicing making more of a product and refining it but high initial costs scare off investors and without their money companies can't continue to develop that technologies and can't ultimately decrease cost. Fortunately there's a way to break this cycle. Governments can help the gap when private investors won't fund technologies with such a high potential for social benefit. This isn't just theoretical. In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s functioning solar panels existed but one widely adopted because of that cost to change this. Germany offered government loans to companies creating soda piles and legally obligated utility companies to buy electricity produced using renewable energy the us and china followed suit by financing major solar panel projects. The cost of solar has dropped almost ninety percent since two thousand nine making it much easier to adopt a similar thing happened for wind energy. During the oil crisis of the nineteen seventies denmark invested in wind power and started taxing winds fossil fuel based competitors other countries took similar steps and as more wind power was generated worldwide. The costs of this technology dropped dramatically. These success stories tell us that government initiatives walk initiatives like boosting spending on research and development offering tax and loan incentives to stops that want to develop zero carbon technologies and consumers who want to buy them and putting a price on carbon emissions. We need governments to do what they did. For solar and wind for many more innovations at the end of the day ideas and inventions alone can't solve our most daunting problems. Policies and markets have to be shaped so the most promising
Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation
"We're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open

Sound mall human definitely like like probably for maybe the beginning choosing the voice actually.

Just do without them and if that goes wrong the best estimate on help you to find unit to have occurs matic voice in the end in. Go one step. I suppose before as well and making sure that you've actually you've got the right words in the first place in the right order. So we're getting talkin about covers my voice assistance.

Tell us a little bit. More about will then tells we're thinking about how could we. Maybe we would try to fit our like persona dine that we create on linguistic character traits and so on that we would actually like most of the cases to also have the voice which exit to that. So i think it's good to Also partner or To communicate with each eds providers Right at the start so that you don't come into project and you have already selected boys and then you then you do the persona. The is i smarts to Yeah start at the beginning and work together where working at the moment is usually have two models. One is very general like it says everything perfectly and house perfect pronunciations and has all the words so it can sound nice but most of the time it's very without a character without charismatic without everything because it's not recorded that way then afterwards he pulled on top the voice like like how should it sound and sounding is not the same as emotions and things like that and we thought and still believing that is historic data at the beginning And to should start at the beginning to have a Voice and that's why we got in contact with them and then start thinking about. How could we developed the first grade a mental models for this voice before even going into how voice sound so. We wanna give it emotions. I was Interest in what are you finding from the work that you do in. We'll we'll get into the the supposed to relate to charisma. It is really commitment. But it's more broader than that. I i would would agree. But i would. I would put charisma as kind of a personality. Trait could be one of many kind of traits. If you like but the concept of having a persona and overarching persona on a brand voice is something that you know some companies have. It's what we talk about quite a lot. You know but the doesn't seem to be a tremendous lord of examples of things. I cost him. Brian voices in in the conversation is based on lord. It's getting there but what you see in from the work. They are doomed. The clients that you're doing. What's the appetite for those those custom voices and costumed personas and things. That is that like a monday thing that you always do or is it something that you kind of need to spend a bit more time selling en and all kinds of stuff well again quite fast. As a matter of fact the courses will once you explained to them that this is. I mean this is the person speaking to your customers in the end was you'll worry so. The persona design is not only the part fall forward voicing auditor that a sound or emotional voice. It's also words. it's It's it's you'll conversational partner so to to have conversation unique to people you need to persons bolsa. Dan own uses story. And if you just go for a use case and i want to fulfil you use case then it's very one sided conversation nobody stat. Even if i'm not interested in a conversation and talk to you and you come on and you bubble bobble you keep on talking. I will have a use. I have my own user story already will have in my act out this conversation. And that's how i speak. That's how i phrase my sentences replies to you and presumably design is more than just. How does voice. It's it's how does it speak. how do i react. What do i want. The i want to try and sell something as well to make that person more comfortable in this situation or Maybe educate that person on something else that i could also do in grand like i'm telling you how to screw in schools somewhere because he just went to a care and bought new bad. It's so much more than just the
Brazil’s Ex-President ‘Lula’ May Run for Office Again as Court Cases Are Tossed
"Right president gyroball sonar. Oh is under growing pressure over his response to the pandemic. Now he's facing trouble of a different kind. Supreme Court judges rolled ball scenarios. Political nemesis can run against him in next year's election. Former leftist president Louis in a CEO Lula da Silva was banned from running. Louis and ASIO. Lula da Silva was banned. Louis and ASIO Lulu DeSilva was banned from running in 2018 because he was convicted of corruption. But this new rolling means the Selva, widely known as Lula could have a shot at getting his old job back. We're joined now by NPR's South America correspondent Philip Reeves. Well, what exactly did the judge rule? Well, I don't know whether you remember this. A couple of years ago, Long after leaving office, Lula was convicted of corruption budges. He wound up serving 18 months in jail. Hey, and his supporters always said these charges were politically motivated. Stop him running in the last election in 2018, which they did That's allowing both Salah Toto win yesterday, a Supreme Court judge. Another of those convictions, he decided the court in southern Brazil that bride Lula had no jurisdiction to do so. He ruled the cases should be tried over again by federal court in the capital, Brasilia. And that means that Lula gets his political rights back, at least for now, and therefore, really much to everyone's surprise. He qualifies to be a candidate in next year's president elect presidential elections and can challenge full sooner.
Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny
"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

"lulu" Discussed on All Creatures Great and Gone
"That happens we wanted to make sure that we were to say okay. You know what it's not acceptable to trash. Someone's business because they had to is an animal because of a behavior problem and it's cool to call someone names. It's just not cool. it's not right. it's not appropriate. And so what we what we did at the beginning was anybody could talk about anything. I didn't wanna put any. That's on anybody and one of the things that happened right off the bellas we started having people talking about dogs and cats and animals who were pending euthanasia. So it's a you know My my cat is very very difficult. And she's very aggressive to me and we can't give her medication and we can't touch her and sometimes when we're just sitting there she'll randomly attack our feet and she sent my son dos bottle. Okay and that you you know. And they said we've chosen euthanasia and we're going to is her on saturday or thursday or whenever and what we found is that those people would sometimes then come on on friday and they'd say we've changed our mind and they might become frequent flyers of of that and that actually really became a full so we then started having a rule. You couldn't talk a living lulu or an animal. Who was not yet deceased. And it wasn't that we didn't talk to them. It's that we didn't want to substitute working with a professional one on one. Because you know the internet is just absolutely full of people who are going to say. Well if you give that dog to me all six or you need to just try this and we'll be able to solve the problem completely so it was. We said we're not here to avoid a euthanasia or treat an animal. We here to support people who are already grieving an animal who is gone.

Nearly 30 arrested after clashes at Trump supporters rally in Washington DC
"With police arrests and at least four stabbings yesterday as supporters of President Trump held a Maga march here in Washington, D. C. The crowds were smaller. But the message stayed the same. A defiant rejection of Joe Biden as the next president, based on debunked accounts of election fraud. NPR's Hannah Allam was at the rally and she is here with us now. Good morning. High. By now, states have certified their election results. Courts have weighed in, and there's simply no evidence of significant of voter fraud. What's left for Trump supporters to say with these rallies well, they definitely want to keep up the pressure and keep alive the stop the steel narrative this baseless idea that the election was rigged, but it's also about much more than that. It's a networking and recruiting opportunity for the right right wing groups that always show up to events like this. And while some say they'll never accept Biden is president, the reality is setting in for others. Now that you know they're guy will indeed have to leave the White House. So several speakers were talking about looking ahead, organizing around some of their other pet issues. The Second Amendment rejecting a Corona virus vaccine, keeping quote unquote, the Socialists at bay. So it's just a rich soup of conspiracy and disinformation that doesn't go away when Trump leaves. And then, for a smaller French. There was a much more overtly violent tones in the last march, not only in the Chanting and the slogans but an actual violence and beatings. I witnessed least late last night after the rally, some really chilling scenes. And so yeah, the most militant right wing activists have said quite clearly now that they won't be settling for marching in the streets and that they're ready to fight. Even before the rally began, one extremist group made headlines. The leader of the proud boys, Enrica Terrio, visited the White House early Saturday. The proud boys, of course, were known as a violent gang. Some extremism trackers call them a hate group. Trump famously told them during a debate to stand back and stand by. So what? May I ask? Was the leader of the proud boys doing at the White House? Yeah, that's still a bit of a mystery. The White House has said Torrio was not specifically invited that he was part of a public tour. But that's just not exactly how it works for the general public. I saw Enrique Terrio at the rally and asked him directly about the visit. He told me he was their quote as just a guest. Hey, said he didn't see or meet with the president. He didn't get into specifics, though. I also asked what it meant for the proud boys to have that kind of access. And he said it shows they've come a long way as he put it. And he says they're using their platform to push for election reforms, for example of federal voting card Here's Terry Oh, it's not for the next four years. This is all you're going to see. When Biden preaches a message of unity, he asked him Listen to us, too. So the problem with stereo talking like he's moderate who's interested in Biden's message of unity is that you can't say that by day and then unleash remembers at night to roam the streets, harassing and beating up anyone you perceive as a leftist, and that's exactly what I and many others recorded the proud boys doing last night. One of the national security implications of the ideologies we saw swirling around yesterday at this big public rally Well for many years now, According to the FBI, the violent far right has been the deadliest and most active domestic terrorism threat. These ideologies and groups were mainly confined to the fringe. Now we see the leader of the proud boys getting a tour of the White House Later the same day I saw his members corner and beat two young black men. The member proud Boys were filmed ripping a black lives matter. Banner off a historic black church and you see a zoo. You noted their stabbings and arrests. So yeah, the mainstreaming of extremist groups is a hallmark of the trump era. And analysts say it's going to be a heavy lift for the Biden administration to reverse that and to prevent political violence from snowballing. That's NPR's Hannah Allam. Thank you very much. Thank you, Lulu.
COVID vaccine distribution underway as first trucks hit the road
"It is a massive, complicated undertaking and it is underway. The first doses of covert 19 vaccine will be delivered to every state tomorrow. Files are being loaded up on two ups and FedEx trucks to ship to hospitals around the country. This has taken months of work and planning and here to talk us through what's next? Is NPR Health reporter Selena Simmons Duffin. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. So the vials were getting on their way. Now what? Well, next is the rush to start getting people vaccinated to try to slow and eventually end the pandemic. How it works is this. The federal government is coordinating distribution to predetermine sites around each state. And then the baton gets past a state and local health departments and healthcare providers to actually start administering the shots. I checked with a bunch of state health officials yesterday. Most say it's going to take a few days for providers to get trained up on how to properly give this vaccine. There's a lot of information coming at them really fast from Fizer and from CDC about exactly who should get the vaccine, So if there are some vaccines administered on Monday, it may actually take a few days for the campaign to really get under way. This is a really hopeful moment on D. I want to underscore that because we really need hopeful moments. But what what could go wrong? Despite all the planning, there will be hiccups. The big fear is that some of these precious vaccine doses could be wasted or it doesn't get to the right people. Remember this fax he needs to be kept ultra cold minus 70 degrees Celsius. It comes in kind of a pizza box filled with vials and try ice. The vaccine on Lee lasts a few days in the fridge after it's thought you need to dilute it before you injected. There is just no way everything will go perfectly. So our health were officials worry about that. Most of the people I talked to are confident that when issues come up, they can resolve them and learn from them clear hand and made this point. She's the executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers. Those are the people in every state in charge of vaccination plans. And here's what she told me. We're going to learn so much from the first hospitals who are vaccinating, you know how What is it really like to get this box? How long does it take to mix the vaccine with the deal you in? How long does it take to actually vaccinate someone? Lots to consider. I want a vaccine, obviously, but the next question is, who is going to be getting these very first doses? The CDC has prioritized health workers and residents of long term care facilities in what's called Phase one A. But there's a lot of hunger for details from health officials and I'm told that that should come in the next few days. So you know, we've all heard about the allergic reactions When vaccinations started in Britain, we're talking about guidance about the kind of history of allergic reaction to be aware of. And then what about pregnant or lactating people are people with immune disorders. All of this guidance is frantically getting hashed out right now, so providers can get answers as the vaccination campaign actually rolls out, and how long before it will be widely available? It's not yet clear exactly who comes after Phase one a on DATs, giving health officials some heartburn. It's also not clear how much vaccine will be available next. What pace of shipments is going to be going forward? It could be speedier if there were two vaccines and distribution instead of one, And that could happen soon. There's an FDA committee meeting to consider authorizing the Madonna vaccine this Thursday. But the short answer is the hope is that the vaccine will be widely available in the late spring at the earliest. Maybe the summer of 2021. That's NPR's Selena Simmons stuff and thank you very much. Thank you. So that is the good news and it comes as the U. S is rapidly approaching yet another horrific milestone 300,000 deaths from covert 19. The next few months, experts tell us it will be worse before it gets better.

Interview With KAREN RONTOWSKI
"Good morning karen. Many good morning motorcycle goes by my house. Let's do it again. Monica morning again. I didn't hear okay motorcycles. Coming back. I live on a very busy street. How you. I am so good. I'm so glad you're doing this this morning i I know a little bit about tara. i've done. I did a reading. I'm going to tell you this story. My own personal story. I have a friend whose wife does this. And when i first heard about it. I thought like a lot of people this is not just fanciful nonsense and you know like a fun. Little aside thing. I i didn't believe and i decided well i don't i'm not going to disbelieve. Believe until i see something. So this is when i was doing stand up a lot and it was my career and one of the cards. I'll never forget this card came up and it was a guy Jumping off of a cliff into the dark. it was. it was a career card for whatever reason. I don't know how this works. But and she looked up at me and she said you're going to have a really big career change. I had not thought about it. i'd had not explored it. I didn't have any intention of doing that. I went what are you talking about. So i was sure at that point that it was nonsense. Well several months later this was you know back. Twenty five years ago. The bottom kind of fell out of the standup scene. And i was making a lot less money and there were outlets gigs. And i I sent an email to tom. Arnold who was getting a tv show called the jackie. Thomas show and asked him for a job. I had never written on a sitcom in my life. I i wrote jokes. So i call them up. Which something. That's not something i ever did. It was just out of desperation for income and he said no i my. I'm staffed up but you can start on roseanne in three weeks. So that was my first job as a tv writer and i remember thinking that card was right. I in this. This is less than six months later. There's your card there. I see the card is the fool card. She might have had a different deck but it is literally taking the leap into something else. It's the it's the first in the last card of the deck. It's there's a lot to be said for this stuff. I mean maybe they're just strong tendencies and you can. Obviously i could have not called the guy not taken the job. I could have done that. I suppose that was my free choice at that point but the fact that that possibility entered my brain that moment because she sat it and it just it just rested there in the back. I never thought about it until circumstances changed. So i know you're doing a lot of readings. I'm doing a lot of talking. And i wanna hear. That's okay i can give you a good nation that will make you feel a little scientifically better about the cards because in there's i almost you know there's an effect that i wonder happens to because ladies come to me a lot that can't get pregnant and i will pull immediately like to pregnancy cards and she'll say no we've been trying for twenty years and i go. I don't know the problem is it's right here literally a call in a month. You're not gonna believe it. I'm pregnant happens all the time. In sometimes i wonder if subconsciously. I've given them permission to let it happen but the tero which is i'm sort of a terrible historian all the Symbols the colors what they mean. I studied the cards for probably thirty years. I still get up every day and find a new book. Because i love them that much. But they're actually they call the archetypes that are that young talked about and the dream are sort of the same as a dream arc. Typeset that you would You would actually be dreaming this same thing. In other words it all means the same thing. The high priestess would mean mystery in your dreams. So they're not just sort of cards that come out of nowhere. They sort of been built on the subconscious and psychology for many many years or vice versa. The cards built psychology but It's it is coming from something. They they used to say. Somebody told the story that gypsies that didn't speak the same language used to carry different decks with them so they could come up to a different tribe in they could say showed him a picture of the medicine. Man showed him the picture of the magician so they could communicate through them but every time someone tries to say this is where they were developed. They find another car deck back further They also Are the know people that. Get weird about lulu. This is where our regular paint playing debt comes from. This is also where chest house room.

Trump Lawyers Pressured to End Role in Election Challenges
"The president's lawyers are suffering defeat after defeat in their attempts to overturn the election results, and a federal judge says Trump's DHS secretary is in his position unlawfully. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson joins us now. Good morning, Mara. Good morning, Lulu. How does that posture We heard from the Vic Murthy and the incoming Biden administration strike. You sounds like convince her you can work around who you can't and let's not forget executive orders. Well, if they can't get legislation through the Senate, they're going to have to rely on executive orders. Just as President. Trump has But I think that there is a tremendous amount that President elect Biden can do. Just by using the bully pulpit. It's going to be a huge change from a president who poo pooed the wearing of masks at some point said that they were a sign of political correctness. To Joe Biden, who was now sending the message that masks or not a political issue. It doesn't matter what party you are. This is something that you can do to keep yourself and your fellow citizens safe, So I think that there is a lot that they can do. But, yes, it's a Herculean effort because President Trump has focused almost totally on the vaccine and not on public health. He hasn't attended to Corona Virus Task Force meeting in Months. And so the Biden administration incoming Biden administration will be inheriting a huge, huge problem.
