What Is Populism?
"For years now. Populists have been popping up all over the globe from india and europe to the philippines in south america and of course into the united states politicians with populist leanings. And those who have gone full-fledged populist in their quest for power have been making a lot of noise and a good deal of trouble think marine le pen in france. Victor bon in hungary rodriguez do taste in the philippines. Former venezuelan president who chavez india's prime minister narendra modi end yes by many people's definition donald trump and the united states. But what is a populist. What is populism answering. That is notoriously difficult. A part of the difficulty arises from the fact that populists can come from all parts of the political spectrum. there are leftist populists around the world who combine various forms of socialism with their populist message. There are those on the right who push anti immigration and anti lgbtq plus platforms in their populism populism in general refers to a to ordinary people as a political ideology or approach it involves emphasizing. The wants needs voices and good qualities of the common people and it usually does so by contrasting this idea of the good common people with the bad elite working against them. Best case scenario a populist leader would be honestly looking at the issues that ordinary people face and helping create solutions for them bus making the will of the people law and that is what populist leaders tend to promise unfortunately what tends to happen and what political scientists have observed in the aforementioned places is these populist leaders bending the definitions of both the common people and the elite in order to gain power with an democratic system and then undermining the very fabric of that democracy in order to stay in power de emphasizing some of the crucial parts of the democratic process such as the articulation of varied interests and the thoughtful mediation of those interests it can be incredibly effective for the leader and incredibly damaging for the democracy that they're distorting and anyone who lives within that democracy who isn't in the group that the leader has defined as the common people so worst case scenario populism redefines the common people as a group with narrow interests and then insists only there will matters a we spoke with political scientists on a malla busa a professor at stanford university and the director of the school's global populisms project which published a white paper in march of twenty twenty called global populisms and their challenges addresses the threats of populism and identifies several possible solutions. According to the paper populism is growing across the globe because of the failure of major political parties to address the thorny issue that ordinary people face. today's world immigration economic inequality and globalism. Just to name a few. This gives populist leaders a sort of foot in the door to claim that not only. The elite members of those political parties are bad but that the whole system is bad. Populist leaders climb to prominence by dividing society splitting it into two not just separate but opposing factions the people and and the elite a university of georgia political scientist by of cast mood explained it this way in an article for vice quote. The key distinction between the people and the elite is not based on class. Our power but on morality is always the pure against the corrupt but again the people is often an exclusive group a to quote the stanford paper populists redefine the people often by excluding vulnerable ethnic or religious minorities immigrants and marginalized economic groups. The result is majority rule without minority rights. Once in power populist leaders attack not only the rights of individuals who don't fit into the defined majority but the very foundations on which the country lies that includes the paper's authors wrote quote the takeover and taming of courts and oversight institutions and new laws that limit the freedom of the media and civil society. We've seen this in the united states with trump calling the press the enemy of the people criticizing judges resisting congressional oversight claiming that elections are rigged flouting laws and claiming that a deep state of bureaucratic actors is out to get him to deny the will of the people he represents. It happens with other populist leaders all over the world schmila busa explained the mindset saying the position is the of the people. Why would you listen to them. The media is the swamp. Why would you listen to them. Everything is fake everything is suspect and no one is to be trusted except the populace end that populous remember does not include voices of the populations minorities or anyone who disagrees. With the labeled majority. Leader's malibu said this is not about making poor people wealthy. This is not about punishing me lead in redistributing wealth. There's almost nothing in the populist program that actually makes every day people's lives better populists don't do that. They simply don't. It's not the people who have suffered the most who support populist parties. It's really sort of the people who fear dropping further down inside of prestige and economic status. Populist leaders often don't spring from the working class roots of what's thought of as being the people though considered trump is a self professed billionaire real estate investor. Brazilian president shire dinar is a longtime congressman and military leader. Francis lapenne is the daughter of a career right wing politician. The philippines to therapy spent decades as mayor and lawyer and india's muddy came from humble beginnings. But he's been in politics more than forty years.
Here's a first look at Apple's $549 AirPods Max headphones
"I wanna talk to you about the airpods max. There was many rumors this fall that these were coming and being mid december. It looked like maybe we're not gonna get it before. Two thousand twenty one but no early on tuesday morning apple announced and released the airpods max. They went up for sale. I think it was like eight thirty in the morning and to everyone's shock and awe and let's just talk about now five hundred and fifty dollar price tag for the airpods. Max i would love to have your initial thoughts not only on the price tag but on the name. Because i kind of wish. They went with studio because the rumored codename airpods studio because they're over the your headphones with the cups. Noise cancelling airpods max. I don't know it sounds a little funny. What do you think william. I did as she laughed when i saw the name but only because apple keeps used to keep everything secret and now everything seems to come out but they hit us with a new name. We weren't expecting and that did the same with the apple a. m water. It is like there's a naming department that can keep a secret. I agree studios san sense better so these headphones they're very expensive. They're five hundred and fifty dollars despite that they're basically sold out until march if you try to buy a pair now it'll say twelve to fourteen weeks shipping time so even despite the price very popular you can actually go and watch him hd. And i just actually have these. They did initial videos unboxing and some initial thoughts. I'll put those links in show notes as well just kind of a quick specs. These are over the ear cups headphones controls on these. It is all physical controls. There's a large digital crown on one of the earcups that you'll use to adjust volume or you can press it down for siri. And then there's also another button to go from transparency to noise cancelling mode so they have a lot of the features of the airpods pro. They have spatial audio. They can do dolby. Atmos and seven point. One surround virtually in the headphones. So that's all very cool but a couple of the noticeable omissions will say no power brick in the box so with your five hundred and fifty dollar headphones. You do not get a powerbook to charge you. Do get a cable. You get a usb c a lightening cable so you can charge it with one of the twenty usb c charging that apple will sell you but it also does not come with the cable to physically connect these headphones to an audio source. If you would like that you have to pay an additional thirty five dollars for a lightning. Two three and a half millimeter cable to plug into an audio source and again the fact that they went with lightning on instead of usb bbc. I'm not sure i feel about that. But those are the omissions and again on that price tag at least put the cable in there. I don't know that's just me. What do you feel wind. Packwood's and i agree with you. That seems wrong. I know we got loose. Packers have old ones. So i don't know how much use they would be i. It never occurred to me to think about a physical connection with this their wireless headphones release anything else. But actually yeah. If i am a musician pro use a full who. This is a bargain but a worthwhile cost. I'm likely to want to better connection wireless bluetooth so yeah on quite taken aback. Especially if you cross into that audio file realm and one of things. I'm going to do with it I did order a pair though becoming tuesday. So i'll be able to talk about him on next week's episode personally but i'm actually a classical music fan. I don't think i've ever share this with amish on the podcast. But i'm a classical trumpet player. That's my wife degree. yes i love. Actually listening to classical music. Believe it or not and so. I'm very curious to see how these sound. On some of those mozart requiems and brahms symphonies at to see the audio quality is really up to snuff. But for five hundred fifty dollars should sound amazing. You know per se. Obviously this is in comparison and in competition with headphones. Like the sony w.h. Xm fors which usually cost like three hundred. Three hundred and fifty dollars was like attuned dollar premium for these and the bose noise cancelling headphones seven hundred are very popular. Those are around three hundred and forty dollars. So you're getting two hundred to two hundred and fifty dollar premium to pay for these airpods. Max so i really hope have to imagine that the sound quality is excellent. But you're also paying for apple's features like the h. One chips the ability to the noise. Cancelling connect your devices seamlessly switch just like other airpods and airpods pro another cool feature to the cups. The ear cushions that are on the headphones are actually connect magnetically. And so if you want to replace the earcups for whatever reason they come off very easily and attach very easily as well and hd shows that had his video looks pretty satisfying and you can also get replacement ear cushions again. Not cheap but seventy bucks on apple you can actually order them now in the apple store and on their website but you can get replacement cushions for seventy dollars again in the future if you need them and you can mix and match colors. There's actually a cool chart you know if you will have to get the space gray headphones and put some blue cushions on it. You can be fancy like that if you'd like but again you're paying a premium for all these. I don't know. I'm curious to try them. But these don't tempt you at all as i once used the bose actions that you mentioned don. I was very impressed on. I do like us. I'm more of a malla guide. The mets on no. It doesn't tempt me. Except there is one thing this one specification you've just kind of lewd to skipped a very good. That is crucial. What color did you buy on. I won't with space gray because the size of these. I mean they're large. They're over the ear headphones. And i like to be discreet when i'm around other people the rare times that happens and so white white was tempting. But i don't have so much you know every other airpod is white and i didn't like the green or the pinkish red color. Blue was the only other one that tempted me. But i don't know. I just went discreet. I want black now. You wouldn't touch. That's what it is so next day. Jiang at a party somewhere. Nobody's gonna notice because she didn't have blue headphones. That's what i would have gone full blitz. Obviously the blue did look very nice. i was tempted. Also attempt to engrave these. I've actually never engraved an apple product. I don't know why i just have never done. It and i was very close to engraving these. But i had a moment of. I don't know what to put on them. And i know shipping. Times are gonna slip. So i just four went the engraving and just sorta without. But i'm curious william. Have you ever engraved an apple product. No because of always thoughts. And i'm gonna pass it on somebody else or might resell it to somewhere right. So it's been like having a set to somebody on their name. Just you break up with something. It feels wrong in a weird way. It feels like it's studies the the pristine finish of the device as well especially if you wanna resell it. That definitely makes it more difficult but I know you have tons of tattoos. You have sleeves don't you. Have you have tattoos all over please. I'm not illustrated unless you know what you said about coming up with something to say. I know whatever. I had written on me. I would change my mind magic instantly and want to me. I did work with a young writer. Who said she was aiming to have some text for every significant part of her life tattooed on and i wished to long life and much fatness so that you have room okay. Well staying on the grieving for a second. I saw that in addition to letters you can actually engrave emojis on apple products. Now you can choose emojis if you'd like. So here's my question to you william. If you could engrave any emoji apple device what emoji do you think you would choose. Would it be the winking smiley face sticking out the tongue or would it be money flying away. What do you think is the money involved here with page to do this. I give you twenty bucks. Yeah i need more need more. I need a lot more needs to pay for the hedge funds and then i feel that's nice cost parlance I'm i'm a writer. I can't bear emojis next. Particularly i had a message from a singer songwriter. I profoundly admire but it was all in emojis. And i have no idea what she was saying. It was just. I think it's gonna start communicating with you william. I'm gonna do all emojis from now on well good by sending emerges did not sending me pat. That's where you're going wrong. You sending the wrong listen. Listen we'll see when that when the next ipad comes out the battery life on my ipad. I don't know what's going on but it is I don't know. It's a little rough. When i edit podcast. It's great at any at any other time. So that new model comes out. I don't know we'll see you keep playing this long game gas lighting me. I'll just send it off without even thinking about it.

"Welcome to kids Smith and mystery your host kid crumb today. We're GONNA look at several events that were predicted. And of course we'll start with our current pandemic predicted seventeen years ago by science. If you still believe in science and is this a first well of course not you can look back. A hundred years to the nineteen eighteen. Banish flu epidemic tremendous number of similarities. Between on then. And what's going on now but we're going to leave that behind. Don't look at earthquakes. Also predicted are subduction zone. Earthquakes have occurred every three hundred and fifty years said six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for the earlier quakes or predictions comes from core samples taken from the ocean floor. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions are both Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet. Massive coastal storms during the nineteen ninety seven and ninety eight storms washed away tons of sand revealing hundreds of stumps the remnants of Sitka spruce forest. It is through a combination of carbon dating and counting of rings. That the date of the last cascade subduction zone or C. S. Z. Quake place the Earth. Surfaces made up of seven major plates in many smaller ones. The smaller place creator quakes for short durations of fourteen to forty five seconds it may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place at what is called the fault line between plates March Eleventh. Two Thousand Eleven Japanese experience subduction zone quite that lasted more than four minutes at a nine point one. On the Richter scale it was the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record taking began in nineteen hundred to shake created a soon nami that reached one hundred thirty three feet and move six miles inland. It moved Japan's main island of Honshu. Eight feet and shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches. This was an earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate Vialli to help put earthquakes in perspective the Loma Prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San Francisco. California lasted fifteen seconds. The Great San Francisco earthquake of Nineteen. Six was eight point six and it lasted. Forty five seconds but Japan's greater earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale based on data from Oregon. Siochana Oceana Graphic Person Patrick Corcoran and US GS is Alaska. Science Center true mysteries of the Pacific northwest will now who are predicted. Minute by minute. Impact of a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake on the Oregon coast get this after three hundred twelve years the CS is he could no longer take the strain. It ruptures a spot fifty five miles west of Cannon Beach Oregon and quickly spreads along the seven hundred miles of length from British Columbia to Mendocino California. The North American plate slips fifty seven feet to the South West sliding over the one to Fuca plate. But remember we're talking about a crushed more than fifty miles deep. The first movement sends a pressure wave that travels through the Earth's crust at thirteen thousand miles an hour it will reach the West Coast in ten seconds. The leading edge will hit cannon beach and seaside thirty seconds later it reaches Portland Oregon in fifty seconds at his Seattle at nine point one. It's what Size Malla. Just call a full rip. Most cities can withstand a six point eight quake last year forty five seconds. But the difference between a forty second and a four-minute quake is like the difference between a head on collision at four miles an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes. Shaking continues the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle will have suffered from ground. Liquefication building collapsed gas fires citywide after six minutes. People seeking high ground to avoid the SU- NAMI will be impeded by debris and driving will be almost impossible at eight minutes to Sonoma will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide but flash floods speed. The leading edge will only be inches but it will increase to forty feet is predicted that the cascade subduction zone quake would create twice the impact of Japan's great quake of twenty eleven. Keep in mind that by the time you finish listening to this podcast. There will earthquake somewhere in the
"Seattle Calgary or Juno. You might have felt it October. Twenty Eighth Two thousand twelve seven point eight magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Canada near the archipelago of Haida Guay earthquakes. Earthquakes aren't unusual in that area. Because there's a big fault line nearby but it turned out buried in the data associated with this earthquake. was something unusual joie. We were not particularly looking for something but we were Trying to look for earthquake Evolution processes when you in fan is a professor officer at Florida State University. I am has Malla Gist. Or you can say a geophysicist in a more general term and so a couple years back when he he was looking at the data from the two thousand twelve earthquake off the coast of Canada he noticed spent before that big earthquake struck. There were records of what looked. I like smaller earthquakes nearby just migrating from north to south and by noticing that I saw I found a precursor to the earthquake creek and that was quite exciting to me and that would have been pretty cool on its own a previously unknown precursor to a big seven point eight earthquake but just to make sure it was a real thing when you looked at some data from two years before and the year after so not only to Intel thousand ten thousand thirteen. Tom And what we started to find is that such activities would would happen but only happen during wintertime. uh-huh so those smaller earthquakes in the ocean weren't a precursor to the big earthquake all because they happen before it and after it to now. You don't have to be a seismologist to know that earthquakes don't exactly know when it's wintertime. That's right that's right. Yeah earthquakes aren't seasonal right. They kind of just happen when they happen by. The weather is no sure is so that was Eureka. The Eureka moments saying while the nationality of this sussman activity obviously is quite important. What when you in some of his colleagues would later confirmed? Is that storms out in the ocean. We're causing what they say is a seismic phenomenon that they never knew about before instead of finding earthquakes. We found storm cracks storm. Quakes this episode. How they happen and what they could teach us? I'm Maddie Safai. In this shortwave. The daily science podcast from NPR VR.
Kate Middleton Reveals She and Prince William Have Discussed the Holocaust with Prince George
"We learned from people magazine that Princess Kate and Prince William have been talking about the Holocaust with the little future King George. I'm going to quote from People magazine. Kate Middleton revealed that she and Prince William of told their children about the Holocaust revealed this at the Holocaust Memorial Day service in London on Monday. The royal mom thirty gate was talking to Holocaust survivor. Malla Trish at the reception commemorating the seventy fifth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz Birkenau and after the deeply moving ceremony. She said we are talking to the children children about it earlier today but we have to be you know for a six year old. The interpretation the royal added suggesting that she had to choose her words carefully to explain the mass murder of six a million Jews by the Nazis to Prince George the oldest of their three children. Okay end quote so first of all appreciate the snark from people. Magazine's hang that Princess. This is kate had to choose her words lightly when discussing mass murderer with a six year old so I was talking to last night just before we finished watching Zoe's extraordinary playlist. which is the best show? I've ever I really. It's unanswered. That was made for me. It was like dumb. Sitcom meets great playlist made for me. We're about to fire up the last ten minutes of it. I said to sit as like can. Can you believe they're talking about the. It's so nice that trying to be culturally sensitive telling their little six year old Church of England future king boy about the Holocaust but frankly someone should tell them like maybe a professional g like me to tell. You don't have to tell a six year old. I mean our kids learn about it when they're nine ten eleven but like six like Little Anna. We have a six year old. She doesn't Know Jack Squat about going full Israel in Israel. He started like at three area but they'd sit says to me she's like Oh you think Anna doesn't know about the Holocaust. Have you noticed the book that she's been reading and re reading and re reading and it was like you mean white bird by that the guy that lady who wrote wonder polite Palaccio and since it yeah and I said Yeah it's about a bird right and since it only know it's all about the Holocaust cost which is why today we pulled up in front of neighborhood. Music School and Anna hopped out and put her hand up in the air and said Hail Hitler I said wait a second. You mean to tell me that today might just blonde like looking zero Audubon street new haven. Where like all taste the coffee shop? The music school across from the high school like every family in our social sir. Everyone is like coming and going and picking up and dropping off and Anna hops out little blonde. Green Eyed Anna ops out. It gives and says Hail Hitler. Hails Hitler is a great remix of Ohio. And I said well I guess we should have had the princess. Kate conversation with Kate. Okay but what are we save a six year old again. 'cause we seem to be very totally dropped the ball that she has no idea that Hitler is not good. I have to say like for them for the royals. It's really easy Zeke's all they have to do is go. Talk to Uncle Harry. Who likes to dress up just opposite lowering talk to Jonathan Sachs? who had to like? Give Harry talking to after that. So maybe they could just call up there like like Jewish applicants for chief rabbi of England's preach to an ever shrinking community of Jews from time to time to holocaust education with ignorant
Searching For a Lost Maya City
"We have contributing correspondent lizzie wade and she went on a hunt for a lost city high lizzy hazara. Can you talk a little bit about your journey of course so we met up in a city called kami thanh in campus and then we drove about seven hours to part of the mexican guatemala border order. That's a little corner that we were staying at this eco lodge. We had guides from that eco lodge who took us into the reserve montessori so we went up i in a motorboat for a few hours when we set up a base camp but basically from there we were kayaking and hiking in the jungle and it was extraordinarily difficult. If there is no trails carved the guides would michetti through through the jungle but everything has fines. Everything is so different from each other. There's so much information and all the plants are so yeah heterogeneous and there's just like so much stuff around you that it's hard to even interpret individual things who is very easy to grab onto a tree that was covered in spines and not really even realize until your hand was also covered in spines they had to cut every out of the way every step i've been in some pretty remote places before but never a place where humans really hadn't been for for decades or potentially centuries and that was very very hard and it felt like the environment was just pushing us pushing pushing us out you know and making it impossible in the rivers were also completely covered in in brush and had to be the machete from the kayaks and late. It was really intense okay. Should i spoil it. Say whether or not you found missing city yeah i mean i think it's hard to talk about it. If we don't say what happened yes so spoilers. You did not find a long last jedi. Wha- what were you looking for. I went to chapas mexico wisdom archaeologist gal just who were looking for a city called sock belong which was the capital of the condone my there's two groups named <unk> condone one one exists today and one is pre columbian maya group when we were looking for this previous maya groups last capital sok-bom means the white jaguar and the lacandon built it basically to hide from spanish invaders which say successfully did for over over two hundred years. Wow what what's the timeline here and i guess i should ask. What century are we him. Yes so the spanish i come to mexico coach central mexico in the early fifteen twenties so to not mind which is now mexico city the aztec capital falls in fifteen twenty one and that's a pretty straightforward holmquest story aztecs were an empire the spanish also empire or wanted to be so they over that all that outland but when you get to the maya world. It's really really different because there's not really a centralized control. Every city is independent of each other and they're all in this elaborate web of allies and enemies. This finished can't come in conquer one city like <unk> or whatever and then everything passes is to them. They have to do it one at a time getting back to this missing city sock belong the lack unknown live there but they didn't always live there. They actually remove their city to this harder define location yeah though i condone lived on this island in lake miramar which is also a a were attacked by the spanish at least once. Maybe a couple of times. I can't quite remember and they had held out but they knew they weren't going to be able to do that forever. So preemptively the late fifteen hundreds they pack up move really deep into the jungle and built this other city called soccer mom but eventually cycle was taken by <hes> the spanish. Can you talk about how that happened by this point. It's the sixteen ninety s the english colonies in the u._s. Are firmly established at this point. I think harvard university has has been founded. This is very much the world we live in now most of the quote unquote conquest that are going on right now are not huge military invasions asians. It's more proselytizing so these two priests are like we have to convert the people of south <unk> devoted to the idea they hire these local maya ed guides who lead them around in circles for five months without them realizing it because the local mayor are so scared of sock belong like the people insect belong have been rating other my <hes> months and months go by of them just like walking around in circles and then finally they realized some things going on and they hired the leader of another local niagara and we don't really know what his motivation was but if you think of the condone being scary and potentially having attacked this town. This guy may have been like whatever ver- enough with this he takes a spanish. They're it's mostly diplomatic. They're not immediately killed. As previous spanish visitors were they convince serve a retinue of the lacombe leaders to come with them to sit in guatemala for more diplomacy basically but on the way they are on the way back almost all <unk> die get sick and die and it sort of clap says and there's not like a big battle this vantage descend on this town of a couple left one hundred thousand of their soldiers and their allied mike holders cycle. I'm gives really easily at that point and then it is is a spanish town for another fifteen twenty years and then everyone is relocated to closer to the pacific coast of water malla which was part of the the spanish colonial policy of it's called reducing might communities so murray by out of where they've always lived in make them live in his new communities where they easier easier control was surprises me then after all of those events is that the location of sack llamas not known yeah. No it surprised me too because it is done some spanish maps. I mean these are like seventeen hundred maps or not satellite abs- you know it was connected to the spanish world for a while but only only for pretty short time so they didn't really have a huge investment in the place when they move people out the jungle stays the jungle like there's not a huge amount of clear cutting so today the location of sucked plum is within this national park in mexico monsoon ways and it's considered an extremely extremely remote part of mexico. There are no trails no roads. Nobody's allowed to live there while you went with a group of archaeologists to try and visit this lost city what what made them think that they could find it and be what would they get out of finding it despite them existing for overlapping with the spanish colonial state for a couple of centuries. There's really no information about what it was like to live in sok-bom or any of the other independent my capitals that existed existed around this time sochua wasn't the only one was but it was the second to last two to be conquered. They wanna know who they were trading with. How connected they were to the outside world. How not connected they were headed they do this. How did they live in such isolation for so long so the reason they thought they could find it is or the method breath <unk>. They used was looking at the spanish documents from the time. After sokolow had been conquered. 'em spanish visitors would go and then they would go other places they would record their roots and how long it took them to travel to different landmarks lakes or rivers or another town's so you can construct a possible zabul arc of locations of the city and basically we were trying to get as close to that as possible so you have your starting point and then they ceo we traveled for seven days you know about how far they went in a circle exactly he's going to be on size herbal and not the other like you can make some inferences and they didn't record it in kilometers or anything that ban measure of distance we would use so you'd have to estimate how far they could walk in a day and it's quite fuzzy but it's a starting point you do have a description of what the spanish a how described cycle on when they arrived yeah it is about a hundred houses which primative adobe so they will not have survived until now there were three community buildings not quite temples but like city halls and those would have had stone foundations and that's what the archaeologists are interested in finding the region today is known for scarlet macaws the sort of iconic red parrots and apparently condone had semi domesticated them in every day at five p._m. They would fly out of the forest land on all the houses and the spanish. I thought that was amazing and so do i do feel like you were able to keep the same pace as the people who had traveled to suck palumbo for you know when you're looking at a previous trips yeah. It's hard to say i mean we weren't hearing oliver stuff. They would have been like did set up base camps. They probably would have been wearing stuff that was really tough to walk around and you know like lots of wool and potentially metal. This is not easy for them either. That was one of the major her things. I was thinking about in the jungle. I don't really care about the spanish confuses blake we i think we pay far too much attention to their experience in history because they're the ones who who got to write it but i was really taken aback by how similar are experience would have been there because of course a lot. Condone knew what they were doing and like we it ends so we we have we were much more similar to the spanish and i felt like if you have a city a few hundred people hiding out in the jungle against a globalizing belies ing empire like it's only a matter of time until they will be found and incorporated into that empire came away thinking that that really wasn't true at all. Oh it was so hard to do this that the conquest of cyclamen basically every other place in the americas was basically the historical accident and a fluke luke. The conquistadors had to rely on locals to help them find the city. Do you think that that's something that the archaeologists are gonna pursue while help was doc vital for the spanish and vital for y'all just now the ones sort of discovery quote unquote that they were able to make on this trip was the classic period read my it ruins which is a thousand years before sock bolom would have been founded but this town in the region knew about some ruins in this little patrick forest that they protect the reserve and they took the archaeologist they are in. It was really amazing. I mean i've seen a lot of unexcavated archeological sites in this was really special one and they never would have known it was there of the local people hadn't been willing to trust them and and tell them about it was tackle on the hard part is that nobody lives in monte. Sicily's there are people who go in there like their firefighters who might know the reserve. There are people who have lived there as refugees like from the guatemalan civil war are a lot of people took refuge there. There are people who know montezuma's ways a little bit better than average person in chapas but because has nobody lives in it. It's just so hard to find those people in it so hard to find the help that you really need to be able to do efficient archaeology. Let's say how far did you travel in all of this. I think we kayaked ninety kilometers in four days. This is a round trip so we went up river forty five kilometers that was already from the base camp. I think a lot of kayaking on in my life the walking was it was really shocking. How slow the walking. It was about a kilometer an hour which you know if i'm walking in a city i go ten minutes. You know the walking. I think it was like eight kilometers things hype it was it was it was not very long but it felt like we climbed mount everest. A lot of archaeology is don don with lighter these days using radar from planes to find hidden structures. Would that be helpful here in this area. It could potentially work. I think it it'd be really great to do it over months away. I know the archaeologist would love to do that to national geographic funded this huge light our survey of a very similar place in guatemala all and it revealed tens of thousands of of structures that archaeologists didn't know about the thing about lighter is that it's pretty expensive <hes> and it takes a lot of coordination and also when you do light. Are you still have to go out to the potential site and see it so it doesn't totally save you from the explorer our jungle adventure that we that we had one of these archaeologists going to do next. Are they going to go back. They are going to go back which i found a little bit mind boggling wing but they're really committed to exploring this area of chapas <unk> swiss and what stood was a give them some information about how how fast the spanish could travel like. Maybe it was a little slower than we thought. Maybe dot com is closer to these landmarks. If you have to go so slow a lot of the information on the satellite maps about the exact routes of the rivers turned out not to be totally right so it made making a more accurate map much easier and i think the most important thing it did probably was bringing these archaeologist in closer contact with the communities down there both the communities who who live in the towns and the guides themselves who know the reserve very well it takes a lot of work to to build a kind of trust you need to have people both agreed to show you what they know especially since archaeology in mexico as in so many places is often connected to the state and official narratives of off the country and potentially land expropriation and things like that people can be very wary of archaeologists for pretty good historical reasons yeah yea so you know you really have to spend a lot of time. They're showing them that you care about these places and you care about the current people's connection to those places in you're going to respect. That's

Top contenders for president in Guatemala election
"Them. Marla in Central America is going to the polls today to elect a new president, the incumbent, Jimmy Morales has come to the end of his single term in power and he's not allowed to have another one. The main issue in the election is political corruption. But with many candidates being barred from standing during the election campaign, how chaotic has the whole process. Become sandra. Cuff is a freelance journalist covering Central America. Yes. Absolutely has been this year, had a shorter campaign, period, than usual, three months, and many of these candidates were barred during the campaign, period. One is recently within the past two weeks. What has a lot of political parties. There's a field now of nineteen presidential candidates, and there's also elections for congress and local officials will be happening. So within those nineteen candidates, there's a clear front runner, Sandra. Tortoise from the centrist named party? But. Heard closest top two rivals were both barred from the race. So that was sort of who was barred because she's the daughter of a coup leader, and former dictator, general Mon, who stood trial for genocide, and the constitution bars, who leaders, and their close relatives from running for president the other who has been, you know, a much more sort of contentious. Exclusion from the race is Tele, Donna. She's a former attorney general and she worked really closely with a UN backed emission against corruption. So a lot of what's been going on has been tied to government corruption investigations, into government corruption, which included investigations into the sitting president, you mean what Alice and the leading candidate? Sandra toyotas. So. Yeah, it is definitely being sure mayhem over the past three months of this campaign period. Incumbent Jimmy Morales Constand again. Kenny. No, the constitution curl hits reelection. In guatemala. A lot of Latin American countries due to the twentieth century history of really long dictatorships civil war. Guatemala had thirty six year civil war to two hundred thousand people killed most of them civilians by the army most indigenous so constitution prohibits reelection and actually, the ruling party candidate isn't polling anywhere near the top. So in this field of now just nineteen because five candidates were excluded the top two. This Sunday will go on to a runoff election in August. The US will be very keen to see the kind of government, establish that encourages stability because there are so many migrants at the moment, heading from Guatemala to the US under definitely the number one country origin, currently for my grandson asylum, seekers apprehended at the US border. And so the issue. Of migration, though, has actually not been a major issue in this election campaign in Guatemala, and part about is because all debates around policies and platforms have just been in the shadows, because there's been so much chaos in terms of legal battles over the candidates. I'm however, you know, the main candidates do each have different policy proposals, or, you know, at least statements in terms of how they would deal with my Gration and those gift for widely. There's sort of a broad spectrum, and they range from, you know, increasing rural aid for small farmers, health and education, all the way to proposing asking the US to establish military bases along the border between Mexico and really wide range of proposals that are on the table. In terms of what the candidates are saying, they'll do to try to stem migration, a living standards that bad in Guatemala, an incredibly high level of inequality in the mall. Atlanta and all increment of policy seventy percent of the population. Nearly seventy percent work in the informal economy. There aren't jobs. Also climate change is really affecting subsistence, farmers. There's also high levels of violence. So yes, conditions really are that bad, causing people to flee. And, you know, a lot of people and migrants and asylum-seekers themselves refer to the role that corruption has played in that because, you know, it has taken away from potential government aid and policies that would go to sort of alleviating or address the root causes of all of this migration son recover putting on Guatemala via slightly dodgy line sorry about that. Brian is Central America case in point when it comes to the loss of democracy. I mean, it's what it's emblematic of is the fact that there's a lot of there's more elections than ever before in the world. More countries are holding elections. But the quality of those elections is not particularly high in many places that are rife with corruption, and violence because people don't have confidence in the election system in places like that and be, it's very easy to get away with manipulating the election. Particularly winced ability is one of the key drivers of foreign responses to election. So in a place like Wata Malla, the US will be most interested in the election, creating continuity stability security. And so a lot of times you end up having people who will rubber stamp, or praising election. That's poor-quality simply because it is going to deliver the types of things that foreign governments in the west want. And that's that's I think something that ends up facilitating or sort of allowing poor-quality elections to

He was working on some tile this house. And, and unfortunately, a piece of tile just kind of flung toward him and hit him in the eye his left eye. And, and it was like a sharp piece. It must have been a sharp piece, ended actually lacerated more cut the front of his I the cornea. Yeah. So he had to have emergency surgery performed. This is about three years ago. And lacerations was stitched up by the doctor that he saw. And it was repaired very nicely. But it was a it was actually a really, you know, interesting looking Asian. I mean, it was reassigned veer so much with all those stitches there kind of looked like baseball baseball has all those stitches in the front, and he recovered from that, unfortunately, he also developed a rental detachment afterwards, and he had that repaired, and with all those surgeries and with the stitches and with the retinal detachment that was repaired, you can imagine. He's not seeing that well over the over the ensuing years, the cornea the front part of the I just kinda swelled up from all all the stress that, that I had been through. So we've got a gentleman he has all these stitches in his eye with scarring, as well as swelling of the cornea, and he's not seeing. Well at all. So the doctor said to me for a corneal transplant so we can replace parts of the cornea. So, and this gentleman, since he's got scarring and swelling as well as all those stitches, we can remove all of that and, and transplant give him a transplant. So that's what we did a few days ago. We took into the operating room and I removed that central portion of the cornea and replaced it with a donor cornea and, and that removed kind of the swollen part, as well as a lot of the stitches and the scarring that he had in the middle of his I so he's doing well so far. Excellent. Hopefully he'll be able to see better than you did before, granted the prior retinal detachment won't won't help matters. But. Getting rid of all those stitches scarring, as well as the swelling I will help him out. So we'll continue to follow him this great, Steve.

And was educated as an engineer today. He runs the Somali American community center in Clarkston and to him the links between climate change and displacement are clear. It goes together. You know, the civil war the war on the climate. You cannot separate them Cherie says when he went to help his family in a refugee camp in Kenya. His brother told him that Somalis back home weren't just dying from bullets that alma wiz to count bodies. And most of the bodies that we can't. People dying for lack of food for disease. Still sharia says many Somali refugees aren't connecting the dots to climate change. But as global temperatures continue to rise mayor Terry believes that those dots will become clearer even here at home in the United States. You know, we're looking at a future. I think if we don't take steps to reverse global warming. We're looking at, you know, potentially hundreds of millions of people around the world, including in America, Louisiana, coastlines disappearing. And so, yeah, I think at some point there's going to have to be some sort of recognition and define what it means to be a client refugee, but the mayor also wants to address the root of the problem starting in his own community. That's one reason Clarkston is committing to use one hundred percent renewable energy by mid century. Instead of fossil fuels in some way were trying to alleviate future calamities and issues that a whole lot of people who now are Clarkson residents who have family members still back in those parts of the world. And so we just have to do our part with conspiracy as part of the global community and Clarkston is hoping to get to green while also helping out some of its newcomers. Refugee Felix Hoti geeky mono- is one of a dozen people who took a solar panel installation class at the city's friends of refugees center, if you get a yot certificate din sorta energy maybe you can't get a bit of job way can have yourself to hit a bed at IFE in the United States and solar installation pays extra dividends..

"Power that originated on my ills French in between that gets. I'm Jim be only one person spotted as you article by Trevor niece could you elaborate on defense that we're not hearing about is cover up. What's going on? So. In the large wide media. It was reported by a couple of folks much more quietly off to the side and went nobody heard about were where the size Malla just who were talking about it on their blogs or some of them were talking about it on places like Twitter. And so the that really appears to be an area where the mantle and the bottom of the crust art were interacting in a very weird way and something had to happen to make that occur. A lot of the best guesses from those ties Malla just were that there was a considerable amount of pressure upward from the mantle there, and then something happened to decrease it for a little bit. And there was either a drop in the mantle just underneath that part of the crust or part of the crust actually broke off down into the mantle. And essentially what that. Would do is it would create that cavity which could resonate with any of the frequencies that are that are mantles flowing with or the crust for that matter. The event itself is not scary. And it doesn't have very much influence. It's not necessarily a cover up. But this kind of thing is relatively unusual, and there should not be the kinds of activity in your normal. Run of the mill day to day geologic activity that results in that severe of a resonant harmonic signal that basically presented as that global wave. It's it's fairly complex science. When you're talking about of fluids, resonant cavities and things like that. But essentially what what's important to know is that this is the kind of thing that we might start to see more often. And if we do it would indicate that there's a lot more activity at the mantle than we are used to seeing at least in the time of science and so true. They are not talking ton about it. It is true that that event itself is not about the cause the end of the world or really even the death of anybody. But it might kind of be assigned as much as the way the Fukushima disaster in twenty eleven was assigned for the nuclear plants all over the world, really just a sign of what could happen. And so, but that was a common sense signed, Ben, you know, that yet, you know, putting new plants on top of earthquake faults is not very smart. No there there may have been smarter ideas that humans have concocted in the last few thousand years, and I see what you're saying as well. But just just like watching the magnetic field and its changes isn't exactly intuitive. Unless you have the bigger picture and all the facts.

Is he still wouldn't be because what a talent what the talent is no longer with BC. Busy. I saw him at the wake for Gary Lapeer. I don't know anything about him other than he so often I meant to mention it. And I've forgotten so wherever he is kudos to him as remarkably talented. It's either one does he do them for Bradley in the other shows too. Shows have Michael Coleman bumps into and out of I thought so Morgan 'cause they all had the same quality. And. Yeah. Well on hamlet what a talent. So they were very lucky to have them. And I hope he's happy and doing well wherever he is. Clearly, gotta get I hope to and I miss him. Yeah. Well, you know, I'm grateful for the work you left behind and I have like I said I wish some of the best if I could Nancy in DM were chatting earlier, and I heard Nancy reference. Chris matthews. Talking about the ball report. Can't completely be can't be completed. It can't be trusted because I never interviewed Trump's and as someone who didn't vote for Trump or Clinton because there were things I didn't like about either of them. I can't say do support most of the president's policies are just my demeanor and his delivery a lot of the times. The policies most of them. I'm, you know behind, but I will say this the thing that really really struck me about. Saying that that because Trump wasn't interviewed a campy. And like, I said, some trusted or whatever. Like, I thought immediately went to. The and the reason I say that is that after the horrible tragedy in Benghazi. I watched the house oversight hearing, Admiral Mollen ambassador Pickering did an accountability review board and. I don't know about you know, but they hit send over hundred cable State Department requesting more security, they were terrified over there. And they were calling your family members and saying they're afraid they would die. And you know, the one person that Pickering and Mullen never interviewed for their review board review board a future, God willing things won't happen. Again, you know, how not have the same mistakes are the same bad outcomes happen again, and they never interviewed Tillery Clinton. Who was the head of the State Department, and I just found that really striking the poor Americans with that they were doing a review to make sure these things never happened again. And the one person you would think the person, you know, the old saying the buck stops here, not a war. They never spoke to her once. And I know why you know, why? Politicians don't trust the politicians, and they felt that you would not be forthcoming. Truthfully. Forthcoming, so they figured they would build the case as best they could against her with others. I you can look at it that I actually look at it as they were trying to protect her myself because I will say this when asked about it. I remember, and he said, well, it probably would have been a good idea to talk to her. We probably would have had a better picture. It would have been. Yeah. But it's a shame. So I'm just saying I think when we have outrage no matter who we are, especially when it comes to people dying and people being responsible. I mean, I hope Chris Matthews, although I doubt it or anyone else. But if she had that same outrage at at a person in charge, not being, you know, at least here. Thank God that we know of no one's been killed. And so my heart. I've always felt very badly the way that was sort of nothing ever came of that. No one was ever really held accountable. And it just sorta stuck with me. So thanks for letting me share. Edrich? You said you had two points was just. I already addressed the other one with Michael call me. But I know you've got line full.

You know, you know, you know, I know it so. And she didn't have any of those. I think she's been involved in in things like that. Because she really knew what she was talking about. Right. I agree. Anyway. You had the doo-wop man on the last hour. How can these? Groups get away with going around impersonating, the four tops and all there were a bunch of lawsuits out the somebody that was doing the vogues sued and the platters, obviously, there's there's none of the platters left. There's none of these other groups left. How can they do that? They do it. Because one or two words adding to or missing from the way, the group is now build makes a huge difference. And that's the key the platters. Can you give me an example? Please about to give you an example because I knew you'd ask for one. Thank you. Okay.

And all of those things allow group to have an extension. Of that hit group from back in the day and still perform. I was wondering how they could do that. Because of the I saw that twenty twenty one night, and it was about all these lawsuits that who whoever was left of the groups were. My my thought just went out of my mind. But for example, now, they're running the righteous brothers. Bill medley is still alive. I had. I am on the radio two years ago. Bobby Hatfield is gone, but Bill madly son is singing with him. Okay. So I mean, they're gonna appear someplace down in Ludlow garage or something it's an nightclub and they've got all these old singers appearing and they've got, but they, but they are allowed probably to call the righteous brothers because Bill medley is still with us. Right. Yes. Well, I wonder how that was done. And. When did Kerry Lapeer pass away? A month ago? I remember the white it wasn't too long ago that you had him on. I had him on around the holidays.

I always find as they want the appearance of the thing. But they don't want the thing itself. They eat needless bacon. They drink decaffeinated coffee. They they want all of the niceties civilization. But they don't want any of the discipline in the virtue and the culture of civilization. So. When I was a fiscal conservative, social liberal in college, as as many people listening to this might be I one time an culture came to college. And so I was talking to her. And she said, listen kids, I know that a lot of you are social liberals. But if I if all you care about is lowering taxes, and you've got to politicians in front of you one who is pro-life and one who is pro abortion vote for the pro-life politician, he will lower your taxes more. And these really wise words because on the one hand, you think what does one have to do with the other? What does the way people think about babies or the way people think about gay marriage would what does that have to do with lowering taxes when it means is that fiscal conservatism flows naturally from social conservatism. But social conservatism does not flow naturally from fiscal conservatism, not necessarily I think of this as a stage of conservative development. So I'm not too harsh on college kids who would say, I'm fiscally conservative socially liberal. But I am harsh on CEOs of Starbucks. 'cause that guys just probably beyond hope at this point. I mean that he is reached the stage of on the billionaire. I like to keep my money, but I don't care about anything other than myself. Basically, I think the reason this is popular among a lot of people the billionaires, and the college kids is that it's the most material it's the most tangible. It's so easy to make the argument. I should keep my money. Economies where people have secure property rights are really efficient. It's so easy to make that argument. It's much more difficult. It's much more uncomfortable. Especially on college campuses today to explain why gay marriage is not a legitimate category. Because then people accuse you of you, don't like gay people or you hate gays or your sexually obsessed or whatever. Of course, they're the ones who were sexually obsessed. The left is the one who's foisting sex on. But then you'll have to explain to them the complementarity of the sex. You have to explain how men and women are actually different. You have to explain to them that our views come from a real estate Pistole Malla Judy that we're describing objective truth. Not nearly subjective. Experience you have to you go down this whole rabbit hole. And for a lot of people. They haven't thought through these ideas, it's easy to say I made this money. I want to keep this money. You don't need to think a lot to realize that. But to understand why objective reality exists. Why men and women are different and complementary why we shouldn't kill babies in the womb? Even if we can't see them. It actually does require a a ballast of belief. It requires some real depth of thought that, unfortunately, the vast majority of people in our culture today don't have all the way from billionaire CEOs all the way down to college kids, the really tangible issue with fiscal conservative social liberal is it doesn't work in reality..

We got really tired and frustrated at having to say gosh, I don't know why there's must be God. And that's not the way reason works incredibly unsound Pistole Malla just say, well, we're so. Smart and we've done so much research that we should really know this by now, and the fact that we don't know this by now really amplifies my discomfort not knowing so I'm going to go with God. And I completely understand that like, you know, the argument from vanity where you know. Oh god. I don't see this happened. Got did. Yeah. And I don't wanna be that. But. I'm not I'm not remotely implying that me, stating this is gonna make you go. Oh, of course. I was so silly. I of course, I don't it. But it is something to think about and and the most important thing is I guess because this is typical of almost everybody that I talked to in this realm is that you have the same discomfort with acknowledging that you don't know the answer and that takes work to get comfortable saying, I don't know. And for me, it's it's one of the best things you can possibly say. Because if you pretend like, you know, when you don't then you stop looking for the right answer, and you have no hope of ever getting why would you keep looking for the right answer?

So well, but this is related to string theory, the universe consists of Heine vibrating strings and these little strings or folded up, and that's basically extra dimensions in those old up springs in there. Well, the theory that there may be more facial dimensions than three or the four Gooding time that are that we understand every day. And so their new model proposes that our universe. Is that the edge of an expanding bobble in an extra dimension? So we're on we're on the surface of a bubble. That's expanding and growing, and it's an extra dimension. It has a bubble in it being blown out kind of like, you know, what happens when you get, you know, week parts of your your order or your arteries problems in the wall, and you get little bubbling. Yes, we are the bubbling a wall of another dimension. And. It's a merge int- in the dark energy is the emergence of that expansion of the bubble and what a bubble. It is. I bubble like honing as.

There's a breakdown and the ability to transmit the the models showings to face whole wordy things that people can comprehend with their roles. There's a there's a better there's a better way to explain it. Yeah. Well, it's it's there will be to be had. No, it's just it's stuff because you're not using the intuitive physical universe. In the modeling. And so you have to translate that into some sort of intuitive sounding. Metaphor or analogy for what the non intuitive physics is illustrating. So. This is we're talking about the expansion in gravitational effects in all of these sorts of things that come with it. And there's a lots of conversation about this being an emergent property of something else. But it is a little bit of the God of the gap because if it's emergent property, and what is emerging from in this case, at least at least they gave I think my net, which is we're on the bubble of another expanding the mention, but.

This is a country in conflict a conflict that the United States is involved in it is and there was a lot of controversy about whether this vote should be held at all.

Thousands of Central American migrants are at Mexico's southern border with water Malla that's some fifteen hundred miles from Mexico's border with the United States. But President Trump says he'll end regional US aid, send troops and cancel appending trade agreement with Mexico if the migrants reached the United States, this isn't the first time Trump is used aid is a political lever targeting Central America. But how effective are those threats? And will they have unintended consequences? Joining us now is Andrew Natsios. He was a former administrator for the United States agency for international development or USA ID under President, George W Bush, welcome to the program. Good morning. So the US says it's working with Central American countries and Mexico to help them address issues such as governance and rule of law, democracy and food security, it provides a lot of aid to these troubled countries. What happens if the United States cut off that aid? It's interesting their programs to grow their economies. So that people won't have a motivation to leave there. Countries that the principal reason. People migrate particularly in Central America is for better jobs and a better life for economic reasons and the trigger that usually sets them off in terms of their journey. To the United States to the border is gang violence in. So if you can reduce gang violence and increase economic growth in these countries than the motivation to leave their countries toward the United States will diminish and took to cancel those programs means they're putting the American people at risk. When you look at how US aid has been deployed in the past. You know, often presidents see it as a two prong strategy. Right. You on the one hand, you might use enforcement, you might use other sort of more direct methods of trying to influence other nations. But on the other hand, they also use aid. They use aid usually in a more positive way. In other words, if we ever an ally of ours, it's unstable or it's under attack by terrorists groups or by neighboring power, that's hostile the United States. Then we will try to strengthen them. There are instances historically in the last seventy years in both Republican and democratic administrations where presidents have threatened to cut off aid. President Trump is not the first one to do that Lyndon Johnson cancel food aid to India in the middle of a food emergency in the nineteen sixties because they were neutral in the Cold War, and he was annoyed with him. So we cancelled the shipments. But I don't recall President Bush or. Clinton or President Obama actually threatened to cut off aid. If countries didn't do it because negative incentives don't tend to work that. Well, full disclosure, you sit on the advisory board for an aide contractor in Central America.
