The Year In Hip-Hop (So Far)

"You're going to talk about the year in hip hop so far. Were actually half way in to the year so we can look back. We already ran a list overall of the best albums of twenty twenty one so far but it seemed like a good time to look back just at rap stuff. Macher for you specifically. Maybe we should start with your two picks. Your personal picks for song of the summer sure. Yeah and interestingly enough. The songs that have really started to define my season is getting out a little bit more feeling a little bit safer to be out in the world those two songs. I'm hearing the most and hearing the most excitement. Abou- have actually been out since october their essence by whiz kid featuring thames who is A lot of folks newt know whiz kid as sort of afropop star from nigeria. Thames is the burgeoning star from nigeria. As well other song is quicksand by marais who is from north carolina stern driving around more hearing them on the radio and seeing debates on twitter about dj's not playing essence at parties as much as they should and both of them are really capturing sort of the levity that comeback for some people you know. Yeah i saw a dj saying that in three months people were going to be saying like can you please stop playing essence. Because he's playing it so much so it's definitely it's definitely out there. I mean what is it about those those two songs for your well with essence i think it s body right like it's laid back it has afro-caribbean feel to it feels very summary intil. Quicksand is a little bit more uptempo. It's fun but it has these guitars. That have the summary field and marais is like singing rapping in this really interesting cadence and has a really strong beautiful voice and it's just a really cool ballot of storytelling and whenever i'm at cookouts are at parties kickbacks like those are the songs i know want to hear

Climate change is hastening lakeshore erosion

"Climate change is making more waves and eroding the shoreline of Lake Superior more quickly. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hunter on the shores of Lake Superior this is climate. So I'm back from vacation now, working inside the lab today, but I can still hear those lake superior way of swooshing in my head for the last three summers. We've stayed at some lovely cabins near. Grand Marais each year. The Big Lake has eroded the edge of the bluff closer to our cabin and this year. The edge is only about three feet away, and it's a fifteen foot drop down to the waves below. Charlie. Walters owns the cabins hi Charlie. Doing I'm doing great. How much would you say that? Shoreline has eroded in the past couple of years well this last year has been about a foot the previous year. It was only a couple of inches, but this last season it really picked up pace. We were pretty stunned when we saw the cabin this year that we stayed in its now perch, just a couple of feet from the edge. What are your options to save that cabin and address the shoreline? To Cabin, but you'd still have the Rozhin problem. I'm told you know they'd have to build up with rock and put some type of filter Mesh screen in and back fill with some soil and. Anyway be a long process and in the range of forty thousand dollars, so Charlie if this repair does turn out to be forty thousand dollars. What does that to Your Business? What's the impact there? My wife grandmother came over from Norway and his only things since nineteen thirty two. And right now in the process of fixing up the cabins, and then paying off loans, so it's a pretty big dent. We basically have to stop everything else. We're doing Charlie Walters. Your cabins are lovely I wish you the best of luck and I hope we talk soon all right. So many Lake Superior Property owners like Charlie are now facing costly repairs from erosion damage heavier precipitation in the lake. Superior watershed is boosting water levels to near record, highs and warmer winters mean less protective lake GEIS's forming to buffer the waves that may be speeding up the erosion process. Jay Austin is a professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth and works with the Large Lakes Observatory Hi Jay here from you, Paul? So how high are water levels running on lake superior now and in the past few years. We've had a remarkable run since about. About twenty seventeen of extremely high lake levels on the order of ten to twelve inches above what we would normally be seeing at this time of year, and what's the climate change signal for higher water levels in Lake Superior is it as simple as heavier precipitation in the Lake Superior Watershed when it comes right down to it? Yes, last several years have been much wetter than we would normally see here. The other one is the fact that is suppresses surface waves, and hence protects in some sense shoreline from that sort of wave driven erosion. The long term trend is indeed towards less is and how much of a winter temperature difference between total ice and no is does there need to be to make that change unlike superior? A year, where there is significant ice on the lake, and so people are going and visiting the ice, caves and people are ice fishing, the difference between one of those years at a year with basically no ice can be due to winter air temperature differences on the order of two three degrees. Fahrenheit, so the system is extremely sensitive to these relatively small shifts in winter, climate conditions J. Austin. Thanks for making the time in good to talk with you again. Thanks for having me on.

Creativity in lockdown with Dan Thawley

"Name's done thoroughly and I am. The editor in chief of a magazine curated by fashion and odds journalists based in Paris mistrial like I was born in Sydney and moved over to Europe in two thousand nine. And I've been working on this magazine since two thousand nine is its digital editor in two thousand and ten. I became the editor in chief. It's a magazine that was started in Antwerp in two thousand one with the mission of creating Belgium's first name fashioned title and it quickly became something quite different as the concept is to invite one fashion designer to curate each each issue of the magazine at say cut blonde to them to express their interests their that loves their obsessions and all about the universe in around two hundred pages and it is something that has really done a a world to a in nearly twenty years with designers from France and Italy from Japan from England and from the United States and really a covering a very very broad aesthetic scope as well so it started with designers like Martin Majella and had Iraq common and alleviate tastes skins people that were really based in that late nineties Belgian aesthetic And then moving forward. We've we've worked with the many many different types of designers like Alexandra mckelway at Gucci. We've worked with Palo Pitcher Lee at Gallon Tina and almost issue which is just about to hit newsstands. In the coming days and was announced last week is with. Luke and Lucy mayor who are the Co curated directors of Joe Sanders Milan. I'm such a fan of theirs. I'm really excited to read this. But I'm I'm wondering Dan. How how. How do you put together a print magazine while in confinement? How did you make that work? We're very impressed so we have. I mean it's always a long process in this initiative. We've been working on for many months. So certain parts of it were very luckily finished. Just before legal confinement and other parts of it was still in the process as we as we were shutdown lockdown here in France so I was very lucky to have program this issue more or less to come out around this Around this time but it was slightly delayed. But I'm what we don was actually done most of the physical productions in the months of January to March already. So what was the biggest challenge for US was That we usually design the magazine together without team in Cologne as we work with a wonderful office codes Marais and Mirae in a column and so usually we would have gone there with looking Lucia and whichever designer we were with the time for a couple of days and we sit in the office with them and we design all the pages and we go through all of the process of of the structure and putting everything together in person. And this time we were unable to do that. As actually there was a case of covid nineteen in the in the office in Cologne in the earlier. Part of of quarantine. It was really off the table before travel was actually Was actually restricted. So we were forced to do everything. And and work from home as as were everybody else. What we were lucky was that we'd had most of Al Photo shoots finished so I'm one of the challenges was that we had photographers rushing to their lab. Zola the All over the place to get prints developed in time and we did shoot Many different cities New York Bacelona Paris. I slammed we. We really were all over the place. Summer talk of traveled others were in their in their hometown during their own country where they could drive and and do something locally which was nice. It wasn't all baked productions Anyway but it was many small things happening at once and and so we did have the risk of getting some of our images in time and then everything was luckily through except for one or two things that we really had too late by the wayside and we set to work designing the magazine from fall which was very challenging. Because we had people in time zones on my colleagues Blake was in Vancouver with his family so he was able to come over for the design periods so we had people working from Vancouver to France to Cologne and Milan only lockdown so it was quite a juggling act but al lost real stroke of luck in the middle. That was that in fact we would for the first time printing with an Italian printout because they work with a special technique where the side of the magazine is actually invisibly bound. So it's bound with stitches. Which then all these small booklets stitch together and then glued on the side so you have this invisible spine with the stitches showing through and they were actually considered an essential service in Italy. Even though they were northern Italy area that was very very heavily affected by the virus and Due to their Status as an essential services provider we were able to print in April saw so that was really interesting and as I said a very serendipitous experience. The putting the print magazine together nut time of course like putting any media together in that period. It was something that had to be done very sensitively. It had to be done with a lot of thought to the well that we were living in at a particular time as well as The That we're going into and We were also very prescient with that because Lucy and Luke's same for the issue that was decided last. July was the idea of human nature and Mother Nature and the interactions between those things that have been decided way before because I feel it so APP. Yes so we've found ourselves with the same that we'd already been working on for months. It was already very much connected to current events. In a way you know we're looking at indicted environments. We were looking at different kinds of architecture that was linked to people's domestic lives the process of them creating work. We were looking at also different elements of of race. We were looking into also things that sort of pivoted around the way we deal with nature and environment. It was something that I of course have to think about when riding my editor's letter which is one of the loss things that goes into the magazine and A very timeless publication. We're not the kind of magazine like You were discussing earlier. The whether it's vogue or New York Times it has to be on the on the point of of the actually of the news and really making strong statements Thereabouts but what we did have in wanted to do. He was still a really acknowledged the fact that we were coming out in this time and in this year Wanted that we will never forget in our in our

Franmil Reyes is the Padres' Most Promising Hitter

"The hitter that captured my attention was the cleanup hitter for the Padres. They have five alford's that I think are worthy of playing regularly. But Fran Marais is not a luck. He batted cleanup hit a couple rope doubles in this game. He's so big and strong. And if you look at his numbers from last year, you can see a path to thirty home runs. If he just gets five hundred bats, I have to think that Myers is San Diego's left fielder. The center field is going to be some combination of man while Margot who's good defensively and France credential who can really hit he was number five hitter. I think hunter run frozen some danger here playing time people are going to be drafting him based on last year's numbers. I think from Ray race maybe can do better than Renfro where your thoughts there. I think he could I think the the ceiling if he hits it or even comes close to it is up there above Renfrew Renfro. I mean, he's got big power. But I don't think there's an awful lot mortar was game. I think Ray is might be potential the more complete player. I was impressed as well. By what I saw from him. There were two things that stood out. One is that I wasn't really expecting him to play the extent he wasn't spring games. At this stage of the year. I worried about whether the Padres would take it slowly with him. And maybe they're starting in the minors on the DL to begin the year. This is a good sign that he's hitting well and playing this early. The other thing too is there's the opportunity as you said Travis Jankowski with his injury clearing up some space in that outfield race could very well. Make the team as a result of that alone. And if you want a a super geeky status to why raise the so intriguing thanking stat of the day. It's three hundred and fifty point one foot average fly ball distance last year was fifth best among players with at least two hundred and fifty plate appearances. I think race might be out Renfro for the right field job. I might just rank them better at this point and Margot. I can't even make the case from our go anymore.

Have you been anywhere where you felt in danger or been in a dangerous situation? Not. Like a theme site, for example, Montenegro was and someone threw a grenade to the embassy in that was only public limited from where staying so that immediate Eric. What's happening? What's going on? Then once you get the story all K, and then maybe Woking in walking into a protesting what's going on here.

As the guide initially say, we should come light. We were ready in this tool. If I didn't I knew wasn't gonna go to right. It's that was going to be. So let's learn a little bit about this trip. This is something I wanted to talk about you recently went to Somalia. There's kind of two ways to skin this cat, some people go to the door th which is Samayo n the capital our guest.

That's where we see all the videos media of this attack in that attack wooden spire someone like you to call risking your wife to go to Mogadishu. Why why would you put yourself in that danger already had been to hug as Somaliland Europe? I enjoyed it. And I some people fascinated me when I they invited to go on this trip. I hesitated about it.

I believe third think we think it happens a lot more and what actually does. Yes, you do take a risk. But don't think the Johnson slip. Something wrong is as high as you think it really is. What you're sharing with us is when you're making a decision about traveling to a Somalia Afghanistan is you're doing some research in towns, like one of the things you're investigating is almost the frequency of violent acts taking place. So is this really a daily or twice or five times daily occurrence versus a sporadic occurrence an attends like the output in this example, from your research was saying it's more random than one would typically imagine. So that is probably diners because you expect econ really plan for it because anything could happen anywhere anytime. Petro, you also mentioned invited. So who invited you to go on this trip?
