Biden announces US will sanction Myanmar's military leaders following coup
"Last week's data in myanmar provided the new us administration of president joe biden with its first major foreign policy crisis. We now have an idea of america's response. President biden has signed an executive order imposing sanctions on the coup leaders. This will be followed by measures to block the myanmar's military access to government funds held in the us. Further measures seem likely showed the gionta not to american demands that democratic order be restored one by louis lukens former. Us diplomat now senior partner with cigna global advisors liu first of all this all seem certainly measured against the last four years widely normal. Doesn't it well it does. You're right andrew. It does seem normal and there is a policy process in washington. That was carried out there. Tony blinken and president biden consulted with about this issue and then came to a decision to impose sanctions so very normal. Didn't learn about it by tweet. Sort of back to the good old days of foreign policy. I think not that. I'm wishing to sound overly nostalgic four the immediately preceding four years. But in an instance like this is this orthodoxy helpful. I mean the demand. Maurice generals rather priced this in. Wouldn't they well. The process and the consultant with allies is helpful whether sanctions themselves will be useful remains to be seen sanctions. Tend to have very limited effectiveness and the people who are targeted by sanctions. In this case the military leadership Tend to be able to to be somewhat immune to the effects of the sanctions. They and so the. Us has walk a very fine line in trying to punish the leadership but in a way. That doesn't actually trickle down and really hurt. The the average burmese people who who are responsible for the the off course well just as a general principle then. Is there any reason to imagine that the people behind the coup. D'etat actually care what. The united states thinks that. This point probably not much reason to think that they care you know. China is their number one trading partner. They do roughly three third of their trade with china and the us is not even in the top five list of trading partners So you know it's great that the us has a couple allies on board. And i think the tony blinken talk to his japanese counterpart yesterday to to sort of coordinate a little bit on this but if china is not going to impose sanctions which they won't it really reduces the effectiveness of what the us can do in that especially in that country where we have very few ties. So how much of the american response. So far and i guess what we might still see often. American response is not so much the new. Us administration hoping it can affect an outcome in this specific circumstance but is more trying to set a general tone trying to establish. This is how this administration is going to do business. This is how we're going to react to things. Yeah look. I mean even if even if the sanctions are completely symbolic sends an important message that the that the united states will not tolerate this kind of activity and will work to promote the the sustenance of democratic governments around the world if the united states had ignored the coup in myanmar mar. I think that would send a message to people thinking about overthrowing governments around the world that hey we can do this now and get away with it now. The burmese military leaders may still get away with it remains to be seen whether the us sanctions will have any effect or not but the us had to send a message in some ways. This is a new administration and we're gonna take democracy seriously. How much more. Careful is the united states being about me on mob this time than it might have been during the previous stretch of military rule because in that period of course it did seem like a much more straightforward good guys versus bad guys proposition than you had this. All neha canonized a leader in waiting under house arrest on sang suci Whose stature. I think has been somewhat reduced by her own complicity with the people who've just thrown out of a job. Yeah i mean certainly. Her stature has been diminished over the last years in. Not just yeah. i mean. Basically because of her alignment with the military leaders in sort of her reaction to the the genocide in myanmar. That said i think the united states is trying to look at is not from the perspective of individual personalities but from the perspective of the principles of democracy and our unwillingness or or distaste for To go along with with appearing to support a military coup so we have to come out. The united states had to come out and strongly against this coup and short of military action economic sanctions against the people who perpetrated a coup really. The only way to go for now. The united states does of course have a diplomatic relationship with me on march for the moment at least any way you have been a diplomat serving abroad for the united states in a in a circumstance like this is there anything ambassadors another embassy staff on the ground candu or is it more likely case. They've just been told to make as little noise as they possibly can. Well i think the probably been quite vocal. I think in and you have to walk a fine line. You don't wanna be so vocal against the new leaders in the military that that you get thrown out of the country because certainly that is a possibility now. But you wanna make america's presence known and you wanna know you wanna make america's policies known so my guess is that Certainly through social media which is of limited value in me mark. I think the government has cut down. Cut off a lot of the internet but they they will be trying to work through their networks of of Dissenters and people in civil society to try to get the word out that the united states is with you. And we're working on this. How important is it to the united states to get at least some sort of result out of this. I mean i understand what you're saying about. How the united states is obliged to lay down the law here especially with the new administration but he is there a risk that they are seen to have done exactly that and have not make the blindest bit of difference to anything. Well there is a risk. I mean if if the us government left it as it is now the just the sanctions. That would be a worry but my guess is that Tony blinken will be is embarking on on a of diplomacy with counterparts around the world to try to to you take it to the next level not necessarily only through sanctions through a global reaction against this coup again. It comes back to the challenge. That is hard to do something. The un security council If china doesn't go along with it and china's unlikely to go along with any condemnation of the military leaders in in myanmar But i think tony blinken will certainly be trying to rally allies onto the us side honest

Revision Host Maurice Cherry Interviews Danny Shaw, Director of Digital Design and Branding at Brandshare
"All right. Let's get to the interview this week. I'm talking with danny shaw design educator located in new york city. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. Thanks for having me. I'm danny shaw. I'm a design educator. Most of the time also product manager when need to be a project manager as well and at the co- at the end of the day. I'm still a designer multi multi-disciplined design of course across the digital space. Okay how has twenty twenty one been for you so far. Twenty twenty one i mean. What are we with thirteen days. Then will far personally has been fine. You know but just looking at the world around me. You would be hard pressed to say that right but personally has been fine so far. So i'm grateful for that How was last year. I know you know the pandemic really kind of turned everyone's world upside down to some sort away. How did you get the year. Last year was a lot. I think a lot of people was ally of me personally. A lot of personal relationships it greatly impacted things for instance my grandparents who visit my grandparents all the time multiple times throughout the eddie live atlanta. I have not been able to see them. And that's really been a tough pill to swallow on person aside and not being able to see other relatives so that's definitely been hard but then which is probably roundabout way on the professional side. It's it's been probably one of the most busiest of hat professionally. A lot of business in the landscape changes so fast rapidly where the digital acceleration accelerated even more than the pace that it was already at which impacted my inbox in my email. People me up for advice and counsel and job. So it's been a mixed bag is definitely been a mix. Let's focus on work for a minute here. You're the director of digital design and strategy for a company called brand share. What does brands share. Do all right. So shit is e commerce marketing company in for a lot of people who may not be familiar with that concept and idea. We work with a lot of. Cpg burns consumer packaged goods such as emmons but if a lot of the packaging goods that we see on a regular basis as consumers so we work with these companies in regards to the marketing strategy. Introducing them to the market gaining insights and data on these new products that's being introduced to the market and we partner with them on their strategy and execution and how the scale they are offering to the audience at large in a nutshell. It comes across multiple channels digital in person shipping. We do a lot of experts. You things as well so Touch on a lot of areas with these brands trying to get as far as being the partner between the brands and these new products. That's trying to the market. In services and reaching that specific audience that the china targeting reach for their respective products. How did you first get started there at the time. I was transitioning from a position that i was working. At in north carolina as product manager and at the time there was some organizational changes. And i was looking in north carolina and and doing that and just going back and forth between new york and chronic to get my fares in order and iran ran to the person who became my manager So we just ran into each other. We used to work in the past at time. inca essence. She just told me she was working there. She was she just started. She was trying to build a team. She was looking for some freelance designers and asked me if i would be open to discuss it and i i'm open to discussing. I was just transitioned from the last role and said hey you know this might be something of interest for me. While i'm transitioning to china figure out the next and then it just happened to work out. Well we worked well together. I've worked with the rest of the team. And i'm working on the designs and floor the digital initiatives and then it just kind of kept going from there into full-time role and then may stand with the company and so forth. What does the team. Makeup look like autumn. Agean you've got designers because you mentioned design but do you work with so i work with everybody. We work with everybody. So i have Outside of me to other designers on my team i work with the vp of marketing. A record the bp digital. We're we're not. We're about fifty. I'll not that big. So we're about fifty person staff based in new york and of pennsylvania so i pretty much everybody to chairman of the company as well That the president. It really depends on the project. What's what needs to be done. You get to intimate environment. So i kind of get to work with everybody account managers and so forth as well now given that the company sizes is so small like what's a typical daylight now because i would imagine you all are not able to get together in an in an office or you now while the pennsylvania offices so they are all the way the to set up a lot of the new york office we are. We're all remote right to be clear. And we were based in midtown manhattan midtown manhattan but The pa office depending on the circumstances on what might be needed. Maybe like a photo shoot or something like that. Some members still going to office but for the most part is still pretty much remote as well. So yeah but a typical day. Nowadays is really. Just you know looking at Obviously out calendar in the before just trying to coordinate on the bear. Risk projects and initiatives looking at tickets. You know gotta look at these tickets to see what's to was the status of status meetings just to kind of make sure that we're on track with a lot of things calls a foul benders looking at roadmap. There's a lot of. I would say a lot of time. Put was president planning a lot more so than in the past so so to speak. It really varies. I really wouldn't even know what to say. What did with low but my on a log. I'm pretty much aware of what my day is already gonna look like just because i leave when i log out. I just see what. I have lined up for the next day. So usually it's a mix between meetings. Some our collaborate with the design team once needed as well as account manager for any new requests checking on the status of ongoing projects as well touching base with the vp of digital. For any other items. That might be down the line sometimes. I am checking in with some of our dev engineers team on the status of things as managing few about digital initiatives and ecommerce sites. Yeah it really ranges mountain towns. I'm looking at analytics in number. Metrics is to see if you know some insights in in regards to the strategy. And make sure we're on pace. We're doing the right thing. There's room for improvement in always looking for some wounds improvements as well so it really varies. Throughout the day. Monday tuesday could be two completely different. Days does sound like a lot. Yes it's it's cool but yeah it can vary a lot. Have you had to adopt any sort of new like strategies or workflows over the past year. Yeah sure well. They tend to crack jokes on me. Because i am like the uae. Try to organize one. You know being a project manager and in the past and project management roles a really try to align and keep things as organiz as feasibly possible. So i think i've definitely had been allowed strong advocate for that. Not just for myself but across the team especially during kobe right so that one thing that be really just had to really make adjustments for the communication on big on communication. I think a lot of not just designed problems. I think a lot of problems in general could be resolved if we communicate elopement so readily had to be strategic in how we communicate and open up communications to help foster solutions especially now that we're not all in this together we can't just walk over to someone and so forth so the communication was definitely gonna be safe there and also iguanas when everything for his hidden in in the world changed right before. Is i do think aloud people kind of know what to do right. So we worked in mit working past normal times and things like that and i think for me was at a place where it had to be diligent about. Okay shut off. There's only so much you can do. And i think not just for me. A lot of people had to make that adjustment as well with the state of the world. Yeah i know a lot of think. It was last year right around the time that the that the pandemic happened. Or the the lockdown started to happen. I was talking with a lotta people for the show who they had either just started a new job in like now it's day for and their mentor. Work from home continually or they're having a tough time to transition from being in the office to now having to sort of work in this synchronous sort of fashion right. And i will say to me. Just because i've had roles in the past where i've worked remote merola north carolina. It was a big remote work environment. Culture prior i would go into the office but it was nothing to see a member who was working remote that day for various reasons. It was very flexible. People have kids people have health issues. We worked with teams across the country. Kind of remote teams across the country engineer so it was never never felt like everybody had to be all his so for me. I was comfortable already transitioned into a more remote environment but this has been the most. I don't know if this is the most remote. I just to show. Has there been like one thing that you've gotten that's really helped you make that adjustment pretty. Well bob meditated. On is i. I really got into a meditation a bit more. Just read different philosophies at least for me just trying to make sense of everything that was going on you know i. I don't have the head. Space is the head. Space app was very very helpful. Helped me sleep more consistently in and things like that. We all just trying to figure out what works for us right. I didn't feel i needed. I wasn't really looking for anything. I was going to make me a better employee anyway. On it I think i was more concerned with was going to help me maintain some schmidt to help during all this time. Yeah so like when it comes to working on a new project or with a new client. What does that creative process look like with you being the director strategy. I know you've got the team under you. What does that sort of process look like from start to finish well. It really varies. Because the relationship that we have with declines it changes in some cases we are more or less facilitators and creative may already common just working on a strategy how to execute it for them and what are the proper market in digital media channels so to speak and then other times. We are developing in design in house. And when that happens of course that's when the standard procedures. What's what's the goal was the objectives. What are we trying to achieve was the demographics that research behind it first before we start opening programs right trying to get an understanding of what the client needs. What goes let's the. Kpi was the measurement of success prior to all of that and then basically looking at our offerings the now tools and resources to see how we can best executed across the board. It may not always be digital 'execution it might be exponential execution might be Just some inserts in getting them the scanty oracle's taken you know micro sites and things like that might be a newsletter campaigns and stuff like that so it does vary but i think we start each project just trying to warn just get an understanding of what are the key goals and objectives and. How do we facilitate that. That making sure that we have the right information to go about executing properly across creative across strategy and course execution as well

The Yogurt Shop Murders
"Today. We're gonna be talking about another harder incredibly intriguing but again the details in this will be difficult. This is a famous austin case. A four teenage girls found dead in an incinerated yogurt shop. This is the yogurt shop. Murders and december sixth nineteen ninety-one. It was a chilly friday night. In austin texas fifteen year old. Sarah harbison and her thirteen year old friend. Amy eire's or airs again apologies. If i get names wrong. Were at north. Chris mall in downtown austin in nineteen ninety-one they were milling around shopping. Just kind of killing time until sarah's sister jennifer and her friend and coworker allies at thomas. Seventeen with their late shift which would end around eleven pm. jennifer analyzer worked at the. I can't believe it's not yogurt. Shop located in the hillside strip mall blocks away from north cross mall. I can't believe it's yogurt. Is something that i was familiar with but again it's a very it's kind of a heavier. Texas chain founded in nineteen seventy seven. It's a pretty cool job to have. I can imagine as a teenager. You know easy kind of fun. i would also imagine. Sarah was excited that iran ten pm when she went to help jennifer analiza close up that she was. You know getting ready for her weekend. It was friday night. They were all going to to a friend's for sleepover party afterwards. It's it feels like a very. And this i think is what gets me too. It feels like a very like typical nineties. That i would have absolutely been part of and i could see myself in this specific time and place just before midnight austin police department officer troy gay was patrolling the area. He noticed smoke rising up from the strip mall. Gear reported as a fire and firefighters soon arrived on the scene as they were extinguishing the blaze. They saw it wasn't just a fire. It was a murder scene jennifer. Sarah amy elisa were dead. All of the girls were naked bound gagged with their own clothing jennifer. Sarah eliza were found deep in the store and a kind of supply closet clustered into one corner allies. And sarah were stacked on top of each other while jennifer lay close by legs were spread wide open. One body had an ice cream scoop placed on it. They were all shot in the back of the head. Execution style with a twenty two lead bullet. Sarah's hands have been tied behind her with a pair of underwear that she had also been gagged with and she was raped. Jennifer was not bound but her hands behind her back. Elisa have been gagged in her hands were also tied behind her their bodies were burned almost beyond recognition with napkins and other flammable items from around the shop on top of them clearly used to help burn their bodies. They also doused and lighter fluid. The fire was so bad in the room. Austin reporter. Dick ellis recounts the melted. The top rungs of a heavy aluminum ladder in the back of the store. Amy's body was discovered alone in a room closer to the main dining area. She was not as hard as friends but she received second and third degree burns on twenty five to thirty percent of her body. She was found with a sock like cloth around her neck. She had been raped shot similarly to the others but the bullet had missed her brain. She had a second bullet which did go through her brain hitting her cheek and exiting through her jaw based on the patterns in the rooms. Killer may have stacked all four bodies on top of each other but amy had pulled herself off and managed to crawl out to a different part of the store. There was five hundred and forty dollars missing from the store itself. Police also deduced. The two guns had been used to commit the murder suggesting there were multiple killers in the days. After i mean everyone was obviously incredibly upset but of course a lot of cases that we talk about lots of mistakes were made and lots of people were suspects. The police department had over three hundred suspects initially and lots of false confessions right out the gate. The i suspect was a fifteen year old maurice pierce who was caught with a twenty two handgun in north crest mall the same night as the murderers. The same gun used to kill at least one of them. Eight days later he was brought in although he initially promising information after tough questioning detectives decided maurice was trying to get himself out of a gun charge and eliminated him and his three friends that he had implicated. Michael scott roberts springsteen forrest wellborn. All of them were under seventeen. When pierce's gun was tested. The ballistic showed it didn't match the murder weapon. Also fingerprints and hair collected from the crime. Seed didn't match any of the four teens. Eventually the investigators just moved on still austin looked feverishly around for the person or people who could have done such a terrible thing
Goya In Three Boycotts
"Goya is a giant in the united states. Food industry today. The company is worth over one billion dollars and employs over four thousand people in dozens of factories throughout the country and abroad. It's also a staple in latino homes across the us. Pino is a huge part of goya's consumer base after goya foods. Ceo robert hunan away spoke in the white house rose garden last summer. Producer governor elevator be realized. She had a lot of questions about the brand receiving. All of this attention gabardine started digging into goya itself. The family behind the brand and some of the past controversies that the company has weathered through governors reporting. She discovered a common theme repeating itself over the years. Something bigger than any single news. Headline goya is more than pantry. Staples and spices to its customers. Specifically it's latino customers for many that the united latina's goya is like a badge of identity. So that's a pretty tall order for a company a gabby and welcome to the show. Hi maria so tell us what happened that you were like I need to spend some more time thinking about goya food products and that this led you down a rabbit hole so yeah before the boycott i had no idea who the union-wide family was. I grew up with goya beans but didn't know or never really thought about how. This company became a symbol of latino identity in the us. Clearly it wasn't about how much people love their beans adobo. It was something much deeper than that. Goya evoke emotions for many latinos and in researching goya. I found three separate boycotts spanning decades. Were goya's carefully crafted. Image as a symbol of latino identity was thrown into question. One in miami. One in new york and puerto rico and the other one from the summer and together. They helped not so rosy story about this powerful company. But before i jump in. It's important to understand. The history of the brand in how the unanimous family used their immigrant background to craft their business image. Okay so we know that. Goya was founded in the nineteen thirties. By on prudence your own anway and his wife catalina and don't pull. The nco was actually a merchant from spain right. He arrived in puerto rico from spain and nineteen o two then moved to the united states and started a small business in new york city importing goods from spain. That business eventually became goya foods rubber yunan way goya's currency. Eeo often tells his grandfather's story he mistakes from home and he. He had an idea that other immigrants also mistake from home done. Prudencio started importing goods like olive oil and other hand fish products to his shop on the lower east side serving the spanish emigrant community but then ends up being really Latino brand for the entire population. I mean it grows and this is their primary. Customers are latinos and latinas. So tell us the story of how don't do the answer becomes so successful in expanding this business after world war two. Us factory owners took advantage of the depression in puerto rico to outsource cheap labor from the island and in the span of just one year the puerto rican population in new york city nearly quadrupled from thirteen thousand to over fifty thousand people. I spoke with puerto rican food historian professor crews miguel ortiz quadra. About how you non capitalized on this. Migration wave to grow his business. The political and economical racial love voting Rico in the nineteen forties. These open a huge door Success of goya foods huntington bank element with Habits was historic. Make no mistake immigrant himself or not. I know that this big i migrated would throw with. Its foot my maurice food memories. I mean that's a great concept right this notion of you know eating rice and beans as a kid or or you know making fresh tamales over the holidays with your family. I mean there is this thing memories and we all have them yeah. It's this idea. That food is personal. Professor ortiz quadra often refers to this term food or palate memories. I coined the term in his book eating puerto rico and he uses this concept to describe the intimate bond with food formed by cultural and historical practices. So this idea that the food we eat reflects our values choices and culture and its central and understanding. Goya's rise so more. Puerto ricans moved into new york city and there was the experience of racism and xenophobia. That a lot of outside communities experience puerto ricans are not immigrants right because they're just moving from one part of the united states to another part of the united states but as it was in new york city that wasn't welcoming to many puerto ricans that increases the need for food to be a place where you find solace and comfort right exactly for this. Oh so important. If can't trace you back to your homeland the To the homeland and to the foot try and so forth in the diaspora done prudencio. Continue to build goya. The city's growing emigrant community from latin america. He knew that capitalizing on food memories was a powerful business strategy.

Space has a trash problem -- and its getting worse
"With me. Is johnson skillings. One of our copy cheese and the of our latest package on satellites titled signals from earth. Welcome john hey roger so we sometimes take for granted. Space has well allow space. But there's actually a huge amount of trash orbiting earth and that's the subject of the first story in a series way exactly is floating up there a lot and stuff. I mean we think about space is being infinite and it is but then there's our neighborhood right around earth And there are several layers orbit and everything not everything from the beginning the space age but a lot of stuff from the sixties and seventies eighties is still up there and we're talking about rockets satellites and big things like the international space station and then little tiny pieces that have broken off from all those things and so how big of a problem is this. The the sheer amount of stuff. That's up there. Yeah it's it's really big because it's all just spinning around eight skates controlled release trapped by different space agencies by not we do dubai right now and things are going to bump into each other and that could be bad yet. Tell me a little bit about that. Why why is it bad thing as it. Just the potential damage. I mean how big of a problem is it for these existing satellites. Give me a sense of actually. How many lives are up there right now. Year right now. There are a roughly twenty eight hundred live satellites and perhaps three times that many defunct satellites still floating around and not a lot of human traffic there right now going in and out of the space station and for the people for too long there might be some space tourists going out there. So you know. There are people who get into trouble but also a lot of machinery and they're more more salads coming up all the time if there's a sense of how may more we expect. 'cause feels like we're say launching new satellites will explore on your services running off these satellites. What what exactly is sort of the the expected volume of satellites over the coming years. It's a lot. It's hard to put a number to it. You have more and more countries all the time starting own space agencies or saying rockets up then you have commercial space traffic which is not done by the likes of nasa the european space agency. You have private. Companies like yuan musk's space x Jeff bezos and amazon. And all his money going into Rocket projects on its own in space x in particular. They have a new system called starling which is going to provide broadband service to the earth. Eighteen beta right. Now there are about six hundred or so satellites And they're going to be a lot more i mean. Musk has filed paperwork to send up as many as forty thousand of these Satellites are not not be car sized space station size but you know a chunk of metal floating around of their forty thousand is eight a huge number no matter how big or little that satellite is reading this piece and this is by jackson ryan one of our colleagues out of australia. Who is fantastic. These worth reading if the another chance. He talked to nasa researcher. At least cited a nasa researcher who fled the doomsday scenario. Tell me about that right. The researcher is donald kessler in the work. He did start in the late seventies. It's called kessler syndrome named after him in the basic idea. Is that the more satellites or anything else who have floating around in space. The greater the chance of a collision more collisions. You have you're going to get debris more debris brief floating around the maurice floating around and we're chance collisions and you get into this cycle of more and more trash spinning around and just really out of control. So what's being done about this problem. A lot of worrying a lot of thinking about how to handle it but there aren't really a lot a good solution to right now. So some satellites and rockets sly back in earth's orbit they burn up and you know some that can be directed on purpose. Some satellite skid spun into a higher higher orbits andrew out of the way By the are no good systems for dragging satellites space. Picking can't send trash trucks since tweet street. Sweepers around growling. They've been some experiments With things like Basically a big fishing net to grab satellites And even space harpoon to grab him but again you have to be careful because you don't want to fragment you one nice big clean satellite and make it into a bunch of little tiny satellite pieces. That just adds to the problem.

Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
"I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics for kids. Viktor Hartmann was a nineteenth century, Russian artist and architect and a good friend of composer mode as his ski. When Hartman died suddenly at the age of thirty nine was dark ski was devastated. Hartman's friends organized a memorial exhibit of his work, and then resort ski created his own tribute to Hartman a piano piece that portrayed ten artworks from the show called pictures at an exhibition. Quite, a few people have made orchestra versions of pictures at an exhibition. The best known one is by Maurice, Richard. Pictures at an exhibition starts off with that promenade which pops up several more times. Zarzusky meant it as strolling music to lead you through the gallery from one picture to the next. The first picture in Zork Skis Exhibition is a gnome actually it's a sketch for a nutcracker shaped like gnome sort of a Goblin who lives under the earth. then. The promenade leads to a painting of a very old castle from medieval times with a troubadour traveling singer outside it in reveals orchestration the saxophone is the instrument that plays the part of the troubadour. From there we promenade onto a picture of a nanny taking care of some kids playing in the twee gardens in Paris. Doesn't it sound like they're teasing each other and? Yeah Yeah. No promenade before the next picture, which is of a wagon with huge wheels the kind of wagon that was pulled by oxen. The title of the picture is bid low, which is Polish for Oscar. After the last of the promenades we come to the ballet of the unhatched chicks. Victor Hartman's designed for some ballet costumes in his sketch to people where egg outfits with bird head helmets but I think the music sounds more like they're running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Next to that picture repair of Pencil sketches of a rich man and a poor man, the rich one sounds pretty snooty. Roll. Along. In the poor man sounds like he's crying. Back to France for the next. Women Gossiping in the marketplace in the town of Moses. Then a couple of very creepy scenes I some catacombs, underground tombs full of old bones. It almost sounds like they're about to get up and walk around to the promenade tune doesn't it? The next bit creepy nece is a sketch for clock based on an old Russian fairy tale about a witch named Baba Yoga who supposedly lives in a scary hut that's perched on fouls or chickens legs. The very last picture in the exhibition is the designed Viktor. Hartmann entered in a competition to build a gate that would be the grand entrance to the city, of Kiev. If, the great gate of Kiev theme reminds you of the promenade. Now, you know where that strolling music was edited all along.

"Another major Corona virus vaccine trial is on hold. Maurice Dubois has more. Johnson and Johnson says it has paused in advanced clinical trial of its experimental Corona virus vaccine after one of its volunteers came down with an unexplained illness.

Johnson and Johnson also says adverse events are to be expected, especially in large clinical studies.

"maurice" Discussed on The Design of Business - The Business of Design
"Outlet celebrating other people. I'm sort of tying this back into ebony in a way because. Like I said I grew up on that magazine grew up on jet magazine I? Think a lot of black Americans grew up with that magazine in their orbit and while I remember reading it as a kid I certainly don't remember like synthesizing I think most of the information that was in it like it's a lot of stuff that I don't. Really get now until I'm an adult that I can look back on it and think, wow, ebony was was it like yes ebony was a magazine from Johnson Publishing Company, but Johnson Publishing Company also put out books that they sold in their magazine Johnson publishing also owns a beauty company that put out hair care for men hair care for women that. Advertise in the magazine. So like not only are they selling you this representation of blackness but now you can also go and buy it like you can be a part of it by you know buying a do care kit or or a relax from ravine or something like that, and there was so interesting how ebony just kind of had their hand in. Every pot about driving forward the sort of positive aspirational model of blackness. You know really during a time when I think of course, we're still fighting for civil rights and just fighting for equal representation. They really were at the forefront of that sometime in in high school I, remember doing a book report on John Johnson's biography succeeding against the odds. I think being able to see how much one person was able to really dry forward this conversation about representation and about even just like the stories of what other black people are doing out there in a way has found its into my work through the black weblog awards is certainly the revision path. So there ten years, ten year interval between those two things two, thousand and three. You start the black weblog awards, ten years. Later you start revision path, which is a story in itself. Important work he's done for I think four hundred episodes. Could you frame it for our listeners who don't know what revision path is? Sure. So revision path is a weekly showcase of the world's best. Black Graphic designers, web designers, and web developers. Really. It's really kind of say digital creatives in general because we certainly had more people that are kind of outside of those three particular roles. and. We just do end up conversations about the work that they're doing. We talk about their story how they got to where they are now. And depending on whom the guest is, there may be other things that we try to dive into. For example we had. An expert from expert that's living in Amsterdam. This was I don't know maybe around two, thousand sixteen or so right as trump got elected and we had like this great conversation around. What's it like being a black ex pats over there and do you. Have a feeling of wanting to come back to the states and like just how are you feeling in general? Even. During pandemic, we've been every person that I've interviewed I sort of touched on in some kind of way like. I just a gut check. Mike how are you feeling like where you at? So it's really more about putting forth these people's individual stories. I really try to take myself out of it as much as possible even though I'm the host i. kind of just feel like I'm more of the. Conduit for like uplift what other people are doing because I feel like you know in design media that's important. I think if you go into most bookstores and are probably looking for design books, design magazines, you just don't see a lot of people of color and you definitely don't see a lot of black people and granted. PODCAST is not a book podcast is not a magazine, but this is certainly where people's attention is that right now in terms of media and so revision path is able to be this kind of weekly. Digest of you kind of getting a sense of who this person is why are they important and how you can really follow them and learn more about them I think it can be very easy to kind of fall into the pattern of saying what you do for your job is just to work. which it is, but also based on what it is that you do where you are in your career who you are as a person and the the trials and tribulations that you've had to go through to get where you are like that's a story. That's a story that you know wants to hear that someone out there can empathize with now it sure is and I I was telling Jessica before. We got on with you that I had spent some time pouring over the archives and then I found myself drawn by memory to your work around black. Panther. And it was so much fun to be a and to listen to you be a fan behind the scenes and you teach us about these creative people who made this world for us and I was wondering if you could help put into perspective. Why Mc Bozeman, and his amazing colleagues in the entire ecosystem mattered so much and what they've done for representation in the creative and design fields. That's a heavy question. I really think you know with with Chadwick you know rest in peace to him and of course, condolences to his friends and family and people that he's worked with. His representation of Black Panther I think was just something bigger than a role in a movie if anyone can think back to that time. I say from twenty, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen when the movie was announced and. The fervor around that movie and that role. I've never seen anything like that. It was so much more than just oh, he's just as actor in a marvel movie I mean he's playing this iconic superhero. The black. Panther of course has that association with the actual Black Panther Party, the political movement here in the United States and then for Chabba too I think come from an HVAC. You have also played all of these other real life black. Heroes Thurgood. Marshall, Jackie. Robinson. James Brown. It's something that I think in hindsight we're finally seeing just how much he was able to shoulder through representation and be able to kind of take on all those larger than life roles. It's I don't know. It's so hard to kind of wrap my head around just how. Huge that is he. He. Brought Marvel. I mean, well, one to the company he brought marvel just so much. Energy and diversity an interest from people but he really really really united people through that role and was still like moving forward to do more things. I know he has a project coming out soon I think it's Ma Rainey's black bottom, which is one of the players from August Wilson Century Cycle. At. That's that's a whole other kind of representation of blackness I granted. It's fictional, but it's still something that is steeped in this. American black ethos.

"maurice" Discussed on The Moth
"Of our moth storytellers, Bruce. Feiler it's called Council of DADS and it's based on Bruce's book of the same title years ago Bruce was diagnosed with cancer and he was worried about his daughters growing up without his help and advice bruce and his wife recruited some Bruce's best male friends to act as a quote council of.

Is they all step into the role of father for a friend's five children? It's a beautiful story of everlasting friendship and the ways in which communities come together in times of Crisis Council of DADS debuts on NBC on Tuesday March tenth at ten PM. Welcome to altogether now Friday, with the moth I'm your host for this week marina clue. As the mosque director of finance, you can probably imagine this is a little different than ordinary day at work for me but you're in trouble now someone gave me a microphone. Our story this week is about one of the most difficult sacrifices families make in the hopes of finding their way to something different. Maurice Ashley told this story at a mainstay show in new. York City where the theme of the night was New York stories. Here's Maurice Live at the mall. We were barrel children, my brother, my sister and myself. Every few months my uncle would drive to Norman Manley airport in Jamaica. To pick up a barrel. And bring it back to our house. And in that barrel. Would be, goodies, for my mom. Who is now living in new? York. And she would send down supplies like flour rice and canned goods and stuff for school like books and pencils. She even sent. Down Games one of the things she sent down actually was a baseball glove in a softball. Jamaica, we didn't know what to do with that. So I threw away the glove and we kicked around the softball like it was a soccer ball. And at-bats. Was a connection to my mom. Because even though she left when I was a little boy to. I knew that someday, we would see her again and that barrel was constant reminder. And she left because Jamaica was tough. Jamaica in the late nineteen seventies was filled with political violence, the Jamaica Labour Party and the People's national. Party would go it is at each other you thought Democrats and Republicans were bad. There was a lady who was a mother of one of my friends and she talked sympathetically about the other party. and. They burn her house down. There will be nights when. Helicopters police helicopters would fly overhead. The searchlight would stream into our homes looking for young men who had started trouble. I was afraid that my brother would one day be scooped up in one of their raids. He was eight years older than I was. And that I'd never see him again. But the one person who kept us on the straight and narrow was all grandmother. She was tough. She had raised seven kids on our own, and now she was raising her her daughter's three children. And she was a teacher so she would teach us stuff she tears timetables. He would drill us all the ABC's and grammar because it was her one point that education was the way out that you had to study and work and study some more if you were ever going to be successful. And she felt like it felt to me like she was really tough particularly tough on me. I felt like. She would always be harsher harsher and always WANNA drill more and more and I can understand why. And I remember one summer having gotten a barrel from my mother and getting. And she would send US comics as well. So I had these Archie Jug judge they were my favorites and read only a couple of votes but we'd Riyadh read that over and over read them some archie. Jugs Veronica that was my thing and I drew in the notebooks and drew drew Andrew. and. Then the end of the summer came. My Grandmother said we're the notebooks and I said. I join them. As. She became fury read. And she got a belt and she started hitting me. And I got scared and I ran out of the house and we shared a compound with another family and they have three dogs and the dogs out excited hearing all the commotion and they came over to me and they started barking and then one of them jumped up and bit my ear. And the blood started coming out. And that's when my grandmother stop screaming. So I couldn't understand. Why why was she so tough and what were we living in? and. Then the day finally came. We heard that we're going to take pictures for visa. Are, visas we went and we took pictures we were going to the United States we're going to go to New York and finally with my mom. And my friends could barely highly envy. Because we had heard about the United States. Of? Milk. And honey, the streets were paved with gold. We the only thing we knew about Jamaica about the United States was. What we television so it was the partridge family and girls we're gonNa Chase me like Danny. Partridge. or it was arnold and Willis different strokes and we were gonNA live in a penthouse apartment. Actually bet my brother we're gonNA live in a toss apartment with a pool on the roof. I don't even know where I got that one I was just like it seems right pool on the roof twenty bucks take the bet. He took the bet. And finally the day came August twenty eight, nine, hundred, seventy, eight. We went to the airport, my mother and my grandmother and uncle. And we say our goodbyes. We got on the plane. We flew into the air the first time on a plane. We finally get over the lights of the city. I see the lights outside. I'm excited I take out my seatbelt did start looking to see the lives flight attendant comes over and smacks me on the hand sit down I sit down still looking finally we land. We go outside and there's no mom. Ten years she had worked together there. And so we're now we're driving down the streets in New York states. But the streets aren't paid with gold. Linden Boulevard has got garbage. Confused so dry and we turn Rockaway Parkway Brownsville now Brownsville Brooklyn. We, drive a Broadway Parkway, and we get to this house. As I step out the car is like. Two Story Shanti Looking. My brother said, he reminded him of Jailhouse A. On the corner there four buildings flanking corner. Therefore. Stories High and they're all burnt out and abandoned. counted. Houses. I turn to my mother and I I always come to my mouth I. Say. WHO ARE WE VISITING Instant flame in her eyes. She said, this is where you're gonNA live full. We go inside. Going to this two bedroom apartment. My mother would have one bedroom. Me My sister and my twenty or brother share the other one. We got onto the streets. The next day walking around my mother takes me to the school that I'm GonNa go to when school starts and I'm in shock. On the side of the building, there's for Fiji. Now, in Jamaica Education, like I said, it's everything. It's your only way out that graffiti on the side of a school building is like defacing Saint Patrick's Cathedral. I don't understand how is this possible? So a week later, school starts as soon as we start the day in math everything's so easy. It feels like a year or maybe even more before. I go home to my mother that day I said I can't be in the right class because she gives me the Jamaican report card. And I took it to school I. Took it to the Guidance Counselor I said Look my grades look how smart I wasn't and Lady looks at me and says now. You're in the best class in the school. That's it. And, things can get much better. After that because. The drug dealers in the neighborhood violence in Jamaica was tough. But in Brooklyn it was different. It was political violence there. But here it was the drug dealers shooting at each other every single night or just shooting just to let us know who ran the neighborhood..
"maurice" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman
"You have to be the one to be able to talk about the work that you've done and the work that. You're continuing to do and so in that same vein of knowing that writing was so important and also getting messages from people that are that they're trying to find books by black designers. I can't find any even looking at magazines and such I mean back when I was doing the research for where the black designers I was finding out about all these design magazines that don't exist anymore. and seeing how they would talk about diversity and inclusion if they talked about it at all. So doing recognize was a way to kind of say okay. We need to add to the can and that's out there we need to be able to add to the work that already exists and say These are our voices. This is what we're talking about. This is what we're interested in and so. The first version of the first volume I should say of the Anthology I did was with envision did as part of their initial funding and so we did the first year of it last year and twenty nineteen, and then we did do a second volume for twenty twenty. Say It's it's. It's in progress. Let me say that basically what I do is I give a word and then I want people to right around the word. So for the first volume, the word was space. So opinion right about space and how they come with that concept. Mesa them in terms of design and then the second word was fresh and so this came right at the time that the pandemic really started to hit the country. We don't have funding this year I. Do want to publish it this year. There's any companies that are listening you know let me know. But I I am hoping to scrape things together to publish By the end of this year, we certainly have enough interest to do maybe a shorter. Version of it fingers crossed knocking on wood that will happen. Maurice. My last question for you is about something I noticed on your website you have an enigmatic new project called more Sherry. Using I pronounced that correct. That's correct. Can you tell us a bit more about what that might be? Yeah. So it's essentially going to be just like a fast fashion clothing line. So I have been doing merch through revision path on an offer a few years to like middling results. And so this was an idea to do a series of design shirts that I would collaborate with other artists on and you know maybe we would branch out into other apparel besides shirts I think initially I was just thinking. T, shirts and so I would have a collection that's just for revision path and then maybe a collection for like witty sayings or something like that I don't know. But that is what Mon Cherie is. When I can't wait to see it. Maurice Cherry. Thank you so much for doing so much important work in the world and for bringing your voice and so many ways to lose so many wonderful people to the world as well, and thank you for joining me today on. Design Matters. Debbie thank you so much. This this interview is a career highlight for me. So thank you. Thank you. Thank.

"Do the trumpet but the mouthpiece is so small and couldn't form a tight enough Ombu shore to actually make a note and so I was like, Oh, we'll just stepping down and you'll do a trombone and the trombone just happened to be. The instrument for me and the trombone is a deceptively challenging instrument because it's really just one long tube. All you're doing is controlling the length of the tube and the air that flows through it, and so there are seven positions that are not marked positions you have to know them as just by feel. and. You have to know the sound by pitch. Able to recognize it, and so I kind of took to the trombone very easily, and later in later years I ended up picking up the trumpet and I picked up the baritone and picked up the two but like all the brass instruments but I started out with the trombone in seventh grade. You learn an important lesson as you were first practicing putting time into becoming a better musician and have written about how that experience taught you that you have to suck I in order to get better. I was wondering how this thinking has helped you in your work. Well I think it's helped me to know that whenever I'm starting something new that I don't have to necessarily start at perfectly. The audience doesn't necessarily know how much time you put into it at the beginning they just know that you've started and so wherever you start for all intents and purposes, you kind of have nowhere to go. But up, you can build some kind of upgrade path and so for projects that I start I, try to get to a good base level and then. Know that I can always kind of improve and upgrade from there because I'll give suggestions from other people the you know content or or whatever. The product is may find a different audience and we can always want to branch off from there. So I never tried to start to rigidly with something i. just kind of plant the seed and then just see what grows. Maurice you've excelled academically all through elementary middle and high school so much. So you were on track to become the first black male Valedictorian in your high school history. What happens next in your life is is rather chilling I'm wondering if you can give an understanding of what happened in your community when it I was apparent that you were going to be that the first blackmail Valedictorian. Oh my goodness. Oh I'm laughing at this not because it's funny. It's not funny. I can laugh at it because it happened to me I can sort of look back and be like my God. Because in a way, it's almost cartoonish. Like it's almost a cartoonish level of racism that I experienced. During I'd say my last. My last semester of high school when it was becoming really apparent you know kind of what the grades weren't how it was going to shake out and also the high school that I went to Selma High School, which is still there was a predominantly black school I think it's still is predominantly black school and that last semester wants it really of came out like Omar Isa's going to be the the Valedictorian this is going to happen is that there were teachers at the school that were conspiring against me. There were school board members that were conspiring against me. And conspiring feels like such a sinister word to use. But in hindsight it's the it's the proper word like these were people that. They were intentionally like. Throwing wrenches in the system to make sure that I would not become Valedictorian. So I had a teacher who? Was My ap English teacher for eleventh and twelfth. Grade was my journalism teacher who completely failed me on purpose. The reasoning that she gave behind it as I came to find out was not even as much about my personal achievement it had to do something a bit deeper that went on. So I did not graduate Valedictorian I ended up graduating salutatorian but. It was one of those kinds of situations where you know leading up to be graduating I was already like ready to get out of Alabama like I could not get out fast enough. But Maurice I. also is not not to interrupt you but I do think it's important to to mention I I mean I don't know if this is true but in my research I found that you were also sent death threats. Then is true. I'm not meaning the gloss over all that. But yeah, some of this. I I haven't really mentioned a lot because like my mom doesn't even know about some of this stuff I mean I try to keep as much of it away from her as possible. But why didn't you? So what made you want to hide this from her in twelfth grade here you are number one in your class you are. Exceeding on every level and then teachers start changing your grades you start getting death threats your student guidance counselor wouldn't give you access to college applications or Offer. GotTa her. Insisted that you attend a local community college to semi auto mechanics and H FAC rather than go on to a state or. An out of State College. So yeah, WH, why did you want keep this from your mom? Honestly. It was for the same reasons that I mentioned before around like I didn't WanNa. Have to be the one that she had to worry about. Like she already had to deal with like this shitty ex husband and Mike, she's gotTa deal with this other son that's like running the streets and in trouble with the law like. I don't want to have to be another source of stress and you know she's already dealing with stuff at work to. My. Mom is a very strong woman very strong, very, very, very strong woman and her dreams were not to stay in Selma and raise a family. She, you know as I was very smart going to school and had opportunities well outside of Alabama and ended up getting trapped here. And I just didn't want to be another thing that she had to worry about at the end of the day like you've got all this other stuff. I'm not trying to be an additional source of for you like I got this or any of those teachers that tried to hold you back aware of how far you've come. There definitely are teachers that I had from back. Then that are still teaching there that know and. Unfortunately they still hold the same enmity. I can't really do anything about that. It's not my job to you know to fix that. Like I've never been asked to come back or speak at my high school and I've tried I've tried to say, Oh, I wanna come back and talk about how I got through and no. They don't want to hear so. Yes some of those same teachers are are still around and that's That is terrifying. It is what it is. You ended up getting a job at Kmart to earn your own money to apply to colleges in you did you got a full ride scholarship offer to? Major College Alabama but you didn't want to stay in Alabama on the last day of high school. You won the largest number of awards in one was from morehouse. College. Georgia who not only offered you a full scholarship you were invited to participate in their project space program which came with an internship at NASA. So you went to Morehouse. Yes. I left Selma two weeks after graduation. As soon as I could get all my supplies and stuff together I was out. I didn't have a party out into the body anybody I was out and so I started off during the summer program in the summer of ninety nine in Atlanta at morehouse and I think for anyone who lives in the deep South and and when I say deep South, I mean like Mississippi Alabama probably part South Carolina Tennessee or North Florida. Like Atlanta is the destination like that's our big city to go to. So even as kids we knew all about Atlanta. Every time you know we did well on the standardized test old. WE'RE GONNA go to six flags in Atlanta like there was always a allure of Atlanta being like the big city, and so the fact that morehouse house was such a well known school in the black community and that I got somebody scholarships, my mom was not crazy about it at first I want to fly there. Right you're not going to be here and like I don't want to have to drive. Far, to get there everything. She's she's come. came to terms with it but at the time, she was not actually really didn't want me to go somewhere Super Far Stanford or Harvard or something that's what you wanted to go. Yeah. That's why I wanted to go I wanted to go as far as I could possibly go but more house I was like you know what? I'm sure why not know about Atlanta it's a good school from what I've heard I knew about. Dr Martin Luther. King. Going there..

"Push pull kind of tension just between the two families themselves. Your my parents at that point probably just weren't getting along. I mean. I'll talk about it. Why not? At, the time my dad was pretty strung out on drugs and. The basically just the relationship between him and my mother just splintered and fracture to the point where there were no kind of there was no sort of way to reconcile that I mean. There was abuse. There are things getting stolen. There were drugs like it was a whole thing. I was very relieved because he was never really around and never set a good example s to like Oh. This is who you should be as like a man has a person which was interesting because he was that when I was younger, it was very much me seeing his sort of gradual decline as he as he got older as I got older. But over a pretty short period of time, I would say probably from the ages of. Six to thirteen because I remember being six years old and my dad was an engineer at Ge he worked in plastics very smart guy and then like by the time I was thirteen and I was heading into middle school. He was you know running the streets hooked on drugs ponding when he could and. It was a relief because like. Who wants to be around that? Yeah who I mean you go to sleep and you've got like a television in your room or something then you wake up and your father's unplug the TV and he's like going out the window with it like. You're you don't feel any sort of sense of permanence or safety. Not just in the fact that you know he's kind of connected to a more nefarious element but also just like you don't even know if we're going to have your stuff when you wake up in the morning because he might have piloted for a quick fix and so I was relieved when they broke up and divorced because like who wants to be around that nobody wants to be around there. That's not a I mean I can look back at it in hindsight and say. That's not a good environment for a child but like it just wasn't good in general I, share his name like I'm a junior so and we look alike and I would always get told by members on my mom's side of the family how much I looked like him, which then also had this weird level of tension because they treated me differently because I looked like him and I'm like look I can't control that that's his networks I can't do anything about that. You know. So when they broke up, I was very relieved because at least I met some level of safety and some level of hopefully normalcy like. Who wants that? As you're growing up? You know it's just not a very stable environment I think for for kids to be in. You've spoken about how artistic your brother is your older brother but also difficult his life has been I believe he was incarcerated and he also had. Problems with drugs. And how much he bullied you growing up between your dad and your brother Maurice Mauricio treated rather badly, oh. Yeah. How did you survive? How did you? How did you make it out because you are just so extraordinary. Wow how did I make it? It's it's. Something that I don't really I think look back on and sort of wonder like, wow I made it out because at the time you're just trying to make it through you know. At the at the time when all this is happening. So just to kind of put this in context. I think I was around thirteen years old when my parents divorced. My brother went off to college when he was eighteen. So we're four years apart. So I was about fourteen then so I was about to enter high school and I'm like, Oh, I've got my own room now and I have like some kind of freedom you know but then he unfortunately. Got Kicked out the first year and then came back home and then fell into a bad element then got put in jail, and so it was always dislike weird specter around honestly like the family name I mean Selma is not a big town. So it was just like now this is like attached to my name A- like my last names like he's one of those shares you heard about his father, you heard about his brother that kind of thing. So it just kind of. Stuck with me in that way and I, guess the way that I tried to or the way that I did get through it was Bhai focusing on. Other things I mean when I was in high school, I was in the math club and I was in marching band and I did all these other things that kind of took me out of being home whole lot. But then when there were instances where we're at home I had other things to focus on so. Even though my brother and I went back at one point two sharing a room together like focus on my music or I could focus on schoolwork racket, read a book or something like that. So also my grandmother, my mother's mother also lived in Sellman, so that also provided an outlet for me to stay with her if I needed to you know in case it got really bad for some reason or or something like that but I know that my mom. Was Doing the best job as she could with what she had. I mean, she was working at community college and I know she was going through her fair share stuff at work the a black woman working in a stem field like she went through her fair share things and then having to come home and deal with these two kids like my brother would be out running the streets and just doing all kinds of stuff and I ended up just kind of. That she didn't have to worry about like, oh, Maurice's good like Maurice's music. He's got his video games whenever he's good and I just kind of focused on being in staying in that creative bubble as all this happens and just didn't really try to focus on the negative stuff that was happening. Speaking of other things to focus on I understand that both your mother and grandmother were seamstresses and I believe that you can. So rather well, yourself can even do quite an impressive cross-stitch Maurice. Cry. Wow. I they taught me how to. So from a very young age and I learned cross-stitch I think in second probably second grade I think I learned it and. That was also part of the gifted class that I was taking. The taught us to do cross stitch and it was very math based. On the cross stitch cloth that you're uses a grid and it's some of them already have holes kind of in the cloth. So it's very easy to make your own patterns and follow patterns that you get But yeah, also eventually learned how to use. Home sewing machine, and I mean my mother when I had school plays and things with all my costumes, she sold like this one piece clown outfit Slough that I had for a play in second grade she sold this big Purple Cape. For when I played King Ferdinand and the play in fifth grade like she seems, she's Great. Grandmother is also like you mentioned the same source also. So I do know how to sell I use it in college for a little bit to make a little bit of money because the guys in my dorm didn't know how to sew and if something happened, they would just buy a new pair of socks or whatever, and I'm like, Oh, I can fix that heavily entrepreneur. Maurice, you grow up loving to write and draw. You did Origami. You started learning how to speak French in the second grade. You're also a budding musician but I read that the main reason you started studying music was not because you had a burning desire to be a brass player, but rather because you wanted to get out of sixth and seventh period. Yes. True I was in seventh grade and I forget what classes I had six and seven period but they obviously weren't very Enlightening. and. I liked the fact that the band students were able to. Get up early and do practice, and so I said, oh I want to join the band and I. Really didn't have an idea think at first I told my band director Mr Ruffin. I think I told him I wanted to learn the saxophone and. The saxophone for some reason I think I didn't take to it because of all of the keys and that I wanted to.

Just I know we're GONNA bounce around guide us into the certain areas but I feel like you've been I mean if we were even just start with like all of the nineties cartoons that were based on movies that were live action but then for some reason they made an animated cartoon TV series. I feel like you've got a hold on those. I was very lucky to come along at that particular time. I have to say I didn't. I started working in animation. My first job was in nineteen seventy nine an elven. A- Toronto thing where you know where I'm from and they were they were like you know the the up and coming doing it different than the the the La type studios that were cranking out. Saturday mornings Nevada animated lovingly. And they did like one specially year and I did their second special in nineteen seventy nine called. Take me no sorry. That was their third special. Easter fever. Came first and that was the one where Kind of got that miracle of hearing my voice come out of a cartoon character. They'd see me at Yuk. Yuks which is the you know. Comedy's toured Canada and The the casting director Arlene Berman said. There's a scene and our new cartoon. This scene in new cartoon where we have done rickles is a rattlesnake Don rattles and Steve Monness. As Course Steve Martin and you'd be perfect and the ad already done Steve Martin and my act so here I am. I'm little. I'm barely twenty one and being pulled into a cartoon studio and voicing this special ended up playing like five parts in the show and It was it was amazing So from there. I promptly did their next special called. Take me up to the ball game where I one of the two leads as like a a squeaky character from Vernon surely were intergalactic. Baseball coach tries to cast team with animals. And then I did nothing till nineteen eighty five. I moved to Los Angeles and I was told that animation was a closed door. There's like twenty people doing it all and you're not one of them so don't even by was with one of the bigger agencies in town for on camera commercials and. I think I went on three auditions and book. Nothing but can saying. Can I meet with the voiceover department? And they were like no no. It's it's Okay Rob Paulsen's got locked up. So he was their client since nineteen seventy and it still is and so I I you know I I just said Okay and then you know knocked around. Stand up comedy and Great Time Amazon. It was on on the road with Rodney Dangerfield and the tissue four tops and George Benson and David Sanborn. The jazz guys like me. For some reason I had a very easy smooth act. I wasn't offensive apart from one. Fuck out the about the Yogi bear and other than that I was I was I was. I was a clean comic so I toured with Jazz. Guys was great because really up my game in terms of my music appreciation and then all of a sudden I got signed with Both for personal appearances and then my personal parents. Tv variety agent dragged the voiceover agent needed missiles down. And said you gotTa See? This guy does a million impressions and she. You know pretty much signed me on the spot and said just don't do impressions like start melting your impressions together hybrid them and you'll come up with original characters so you know. I immediately started just doing impressions. I on gadget on the Specter Gadget. They needed to replace the chief. 'cause they moved the show from Canada to away and I just looked at the big stash went Walter cronkite episode. The gadget is the chief and what right into real ghostbusters where they specifically said in the waiting room no impressions. We already have the guys if the guy if we wanted to make a show about we get Bill Murray. And we'd get Harold Ray Danny Aykroyd who the Aykroyd Ramos Work -secutive producers on the cartoon and and and I and so I walked in the booth looked at Egon. And didn't he wasn't colored in so. I didn't know you would have blonde hair so I just thought well I'd have no other ideas so I did Ramos could be extraordinarily bad for slammer force-5 free roaming free roaming phantasm have to stop myself from saying orgasm every time. That's so interesting that they told you not to do impressions for something like ghostbusters. No impressions and then a week later. I got the call and and and I walked in and Michael Gross went. I know we said no impressions. But you've finished. Reddish we went. He gets doing oppression. So I kind of anchored it to the movie by sounding like Harold and I liked my impression of him so yeah I mean I guess I'm thinking in with in voice acting especially for something based on a pre existing property. They have this thing called sound alikes when the original actors can't fulfil that role again that's actually always described at least to me like as a positive thing because I guess it's from the production standpoint of like saving money. It just is so interesting to me that they were like making this hard and fast rule maybe voice over acting was thought of differently back then or I don't know all celebrities Shirley certainly celebrities weren't quite hip to the idea that their kids and grandkids would think they were cool if they were in a cartoon you know they were busy. They were onto the next film and so they did an herald scales in a Dan. Ackroyd case it's absolutely true. Of COURSE BILL. Murray's they were they were just too busy and they tried with planet with Captain Planet. They really tried to have a full slate of big celebrities in mail. Even started the ball rolling. And I'll I'll have to chastise marsha goodman Andy Heyward for that On the celebrity stunt cast the original Voice of Captain Planet. Was Tom Cruise. Wow yuck he did five episodes. How would Marshall Goodman who? I have to stop here in. Give her credit as my guardian angel. My discoverer I mean she. She's the one who decided. I get to be in cartoons. She was the casting director at D.C enterprises and she put me in everything in the eighties nineties and I paid her back by developing a drug problem and and being every session and disappearing into the bathroom for half an hour between takes. I GOT SOBER BEEN SOBER SINCE SINCE. Reagan got on the plane January twentieth. Two thousand nine hundred eighty nine. I was a fucking nightmare from nineteen eighty five to one thousand nine somehow or another still work because all the celebrities were busy has the celebrity thing is really interesting. Just you know just even in terms of the simpsons For example you have Dustin Hoffman. Doing a voice and going by a different name in the credits and People were unsure about if they WANNA have associated with like cartoons. Especially since you know the simpsons had not that was only in its second season so it wasn't you know even though it was obviously a successful who knew how long it would last and if that'd be embarrassing later so it's really amazing how You know voice acting has evolved and devolved and evolved and gone through all these different ups and downs of How it's viewed by the studios or the masses and one thing. I found really funny in the newest John. Mullany special is the sketch where he's talking to children's Focus Group and he is asking all the children like to add to the movie that you know such and such big name like Angelina. Jolie was the voice of the draft And Kiss Kids. Don't care if it's like a celebrity that they don't know So I've always thought it was so bizarre that someone who doesn't bring a lot to the voice acting You know is cast when there are all these really amazing voice actors. And that's not always the case. I know we kind of touched on this last time. You're on the show but I've always thought that was so interesting. You get these huge cars. That don't add me if I ever get to meet the lady who I respect tremendously as a comedian. I will give him a big kiss on the cheek for doing that. It was great because that is that that it's you know. At least we've uncovered that You know that that that bit of you know the lie that somehow or another it makes a difference with a set it on the last podcast. I'll say it again. You know they have side cards. We mere voice actors have side guards and therefore we all are available to work. Putt I I also know that the strategy of the studios is those big names are so the parents will pay to come and see the movie too and actually be able to sit through it and go. Oh there's Tom Hanks. And by the way Tom exit a fantastic job you know in polar express toward toy story..

"Here what's on your mind Maurice by John you know I just want to let you guys know I am a postal worker I am a letter carrier and not some of the things that I see that people are ordering now because of this virus is pretty interesting now you know we don't get as much letters now and I think that because you know many people out of work so they're not mailing paper things anymore as much but the malls are closed downtown close always stop if there's a closer for you know they'll pick in the first impulse is really extraordinary I mean I'm seeing dog food paper towels paper toilet paper all just about anything you can imagine now to all ticked off because of the style of this is being closed now you are you with the US postal service I am I am I am the I've never exactly so that's kind of a clause I prayed at close of business operation that famously has not been profitable maybe this is actually going to be good for you guys huh I do but I do have a sense that it probably will I mean I'm grateful that I have a job job that there's so many people out of the book well one of the central jobs at the public feel I can trust and I'm grateful that I'm a part of it yeah no kidding and as are we I mean if I'm afraid to or can't go to a store I'm glad you're willing to come to my door and deliver stuff so is your truck literally got more stuff in it now yeah I I have more parcel post and letters you know that's probably because we are like I said the malls are closed and people are willing to go and risk doing anything that what well again you know yeah right that's all right light bridges are just going right in the world how do you feel though because I hope that was your horn so yes how do you feel then about having to touch all of these things people are afraid to pick up their letters sometimes and there you are touching them left and right how do you feel or how do you safeguard yourself you know I have not really been concerned at all John I mean we've we've had stand up talk simple serves buns to very good at you know informing us of all the safety precautions that we need to take the washing your hands and doing all different things but not really have that much of a concern with that I'm assuming the public really knows and understands what you know that but these things are just not going to be as transmissible with the cardboard and all that so now that I have the big boxes are used to go to the door and ring the bell and I know that there and then I just leave all walk away most of the times when I know they're there and that's because they they they request me to do that so I understand the customers understand toilet paper you know I hadn't thought about that but if they'd stores don't have that and they don't I could order it online I guess how you would deliver it absolutely absolutely we will do whatever we have to that's probably a nice when you pick up the big box and it's real light you go I know what's in here I don't have those all the time okay but he said yeah it's just me and I guess you can't necessarily tell what's in the things that you're delivering but any other curiosities or things that you're seeing an uptick in the people are getting in the mail yeah I've seen diapers now I have a customer that is pretty much on a regular basis get he because he's you know the big box there that's already branded a label on the outside of the box so you know it is pretty obvious so the diapers is enough check not too much by anything else other than those essential things diapers the toilet paper and the people tiles I see a lot of that now yes so it's it's getting pretty interesting I guess you can't tip your mail man that I'd like I'd like to can you can I look can I put a six pack out what what would be a nice way I thank the mailman mail more not the six pack more okay what what would be a nice thing to do Maurice for the letter carriers out there your old phone carriers we we we will give cookies and things like that the customers may I have a business route mostly sell at some of it is residential so some of the customers they bake cookies and things like that I have received you know things like a card with a letter saying Hey we thanks a lot for your for your hard work more recent things like that so nothing really outlandish you know but gift cards certainly out though yeah Hey now there you go there you go yeah and you know they are they don't want us handling cash they prefer we use plastic and maybe you hadn't thought about something like this before but if commerce is still rolling through your condo home or apartment maybe because somebody delivered it like Maurice this might not be a bad time to say thank you that way Morris thank you for the phone call absolutely job take care yeah yeah you stay well they're still out there John are government workers who are off the job still getting paid and if they are if they are or others in the private sector still on the job will they be getting the stimulus checks yeah you'll be getting a stimulus check as long as you qualify financially it's not unemployment compensation you know what's
