How do we learn to be empathetic?

"Hello saadia. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is my pat phrase for this entire year. How are you think. It'll i might i might steal it and i'm i'm good. Yeah i i would say. I can't complain. But i definitely can. But i won't fair enough. Why don't we start this discussion. Because i honestly had not thought of the scope of This cohort can give me a sense of how large the second gen population is in canada. Yes so from the last census which was twenty sixteen. So we'll have better numbers soon. We know that there are six million Second gen canadians and thirty. Seven percent of those under fifteen second on in two thousand sixteen th. That's a really large numbers. So i think it's really gonna change our country in increasingly profound ways and maybe quickly just because we're gonna use this term a lot can you Explain for census purposes. At least what does it mean to be. Second jim sure is actually like people get really confused about this. A first generation some people being first generation is like if you're born in canada your first job but you're actually second generation so if if you immigrate to canada your first generation canadian and then if you're born in canada your second generation canadian and then there's kind of like this in between generation which is one point five so like for instance I'm actually one point five gen whichever this whole piece of being second dreaded. I realized i'm actually one point five so one point five news. You weren't born in canada but you were essentially raced in canada. So in my case i was born in karachi but my parents canadian my sister. My older sister was born canada and then we moved back to canada when i was two years old so like had a second gen experience but from a counting point of view. I don't think it would be counting a second gen for those of us who haven't experienced it firsthand or even maybe haven't had a really close friend or relative That's grown up. That way. can you just maybe give me a sense of some of the experiences that second gen kids are likely to have as they grow up. I know you describe a few in your piece. Yeah so. I think it's really dependent on your parents are very on race and class and other factors and i think i can speak to my own experience in you. Know the generation that i'm in mid thirties. My parents are a little bit older than most. Most people's parents around me for instance that i think that also impacted my experience in terms of when they came over. My dad came over in his late. Twenty s and my mom came over in her mid twenties and the experience for me growing up with my parents and then they had me a little bit later. My mom had me when she was like thirty. Three and my dad was like in his early forties. So for me. There's also a generational gap between me and my parents a little bit especially with my dad and not kind of factors into cultural things but maybe not everybody necessarily has that kind of gap. But i think some of the things you experience Are just seeing. Your parents treated differently than you. And i think that's the thing as a child you become very acutely aware of that. For instance we're talking about race a lot and that's definitely factors into a lot of these kinds of conversations but for instance. I think like having an accent is something we don't always talk about. And you can see when you have an accent and we don't have an accent the difference and when i say don't have an accent i mean don't have a canadian accent. This is a very so even in the way. I speak about it. It's very biased. Right so my parents don't have the canadian accent and you can immediately see how someone will treat them differently than someone with a canadian accent. And i think that like as a child. There's also embarrassment related to that right like you're embarrassed that your parents have an accent. You're embarrassed that you know it. My mom ran out in the sea close to get from the grocery store that would embarrass me because it was just like this marker of difference so there's all these markers of difference and you kind of immediately absorb how the world around you treat you as a result of those mark present difference It does i mean. I don't have that experience unless you count My father being a dedicated hippie folk singer and just looking weird to all the other kids at school But it's not the same thing out what goes through your head when you're young child and you know you start to realize those things like do you remember when you began to realize that that your parents spoke with an accent that you didn't have or war different close than your friends parents and and and how do you work with that in your head. How do you process that experience. Well it's funny. Because i actually like. I grew up in markham ontario which is actually the most stem diverse place in canada's over me most of my friends parents were actually from either a similar background or just also an immigrant background like the vast majority of them so but but it was still in a way. It wasn't like the difference between my parents and my friends parents. It was more like my parents. And what i saw like saved by the bathroom. It's like this idea of what's normal. And i think we all can can kind of relate to that like the idea. What's normal on tv happening in your own for what's gonna make or what's happening in real life and i think when you're second genesis sort of amplified in a bit of a different way because there's more of a cultural disconnect and so i never noticed. My parents had a different accent. With than me. For instance. I think it was something like that was just the truth. You know it's just something. I grew up with and felt very

First 'murder hornet' nest in U.S. destroyed in Washington

"Asian giant hornet that invaded the U. S detected here in our state a few months ago in Markham County there last week confirmation, of course, the nest found they plan to eliminate it. And they did now, the question. To find a queen in that is there more queens are more nests by the size of a basketball contained an estimated 100 to 200 Hornets. Lot of beekeepers around Puget Sound. I know what many musicians for Bee keepers some radio people. Todd Meyers is the environmental policy director of Washington Policy Center. He's a beekeeper. He shared some knowledge and everything he's been looking at here with their murder Hornet. And talked with talk show host John Carlson of our sister station 5. 70. K V. I. He started the conversation with the capture of the live be where they used the dental floss to tie a tracer device to it. So as a flew back to the nest. Yeah, So you talked about them, tying the transmitter. There is a photo of the person who was doing that with bare hands. Squeezing the hornet on and tying it on. Just for context. If my bees decide they're grumpy at me, and I get stung about 100 times. It will be very unpleasant. But I will live. Um The Asian giant Hornet. If you get stung 5 to 10 times, it will kill you. So that gives you a sense of how dangerous they are. And so you know, whoever is being paid to hold on to one of these with their bare hands and tie on the transmitter. Is brave and probably not being paid enough. So that gives you a sense of the challenge of not just finding them, but then eradicating them because they are very dangerous. Okay. They're about twice the size of a normal hornet. Where they native to because there aren't native to here. There They are called the Asian giant Hornet. For a reason. They come from China. They're in Japan on DH. They we suspect that they came over on some sort of agricultural shipment where they hit out. The first ones were actually found on Vancouver Island near Victoria on DH. Then they have spread and so they were found in Watkins County. Andrei, Let me ask you this flat out. If they didn't get them all. And the murder. Hornets survives. What changes Ah one people need to be more careful nest because they're very dangerous beekeeper who will have to figure out a way to protect Their hives. So they come up with strategies. You know, Like I said, this in Japan and elsewhere for a while, and so there are strategies to deal with him. In fact, State Department of Agriculture talked with lots of people in Japan who have dealt with these toe learn how to deal with them here, But things will change for people and for, um Beekeeper's so But I also think you know that that we will learn how to more effectively fight them and eradicate them. So, um I think we're just We may be just the beginning. But like I said, they've learned a lot in doing this and how to be effective and hopefully they can get more effective time. Couldn't they wipe out Washington's bee population, which has already faced several threats and has, you know managed to prevail. But would wouldn't murder Hornets me? Aren't they? Like you know an invasive thiss fish species? Sometimes you know that that can do terrible damage to native born. Yeah, there's there's no doubt that it's one more threat. I would say at this point, it's still just a threat. The other thing is that I think the University of Washington maybe Washington University, rather was a great beekeeping program, did a model and found that their range would really be sort of along the coast. Down to mid organ wouldn't go beyond that. Because the habitat is just not suited for them in the climate and other things like that, so they are very serious problem, But it's not at least from their modeling doesn't indicate that it would even go to the whole state or the whole country. And and I should point out that they don't pollinate. They don't make honey, right. I mean, you know, like yellow jackets and things like that, that occasionally I see a dead bees on the front of my hive. Yellow jackets have come and killed. So it's It's a similar sort of thing.

"So but we talk on like constantly and so yeah you know because we ask each other questions. Hey what's your trick for opening up which you're saying for this whatever it is so we actually really tight knit but very spread out community but yeah. That's what sucks is it solitary. I do have my assistant. Paloma who I call my little dove and so it's just the two of us but we do bring on more people like when we were doing the Santa Barbara Job redoing. A bunch of stuff. My mentor came and worked with us. Dakota rose from Iowa like we bring people on for things I do. I even bring on students occasionally. So that's what's great anti the classes and I've been teaching a college course at Occidental College. So that's one of the ways. I get over the second Chino. Her website. Pray taxidermy lists upcoming classes and she has on the calendar a two day intensive course called. Birds WANNA one. That's on Saturday. May Twenty third and twenty fourth but then underneath it however in big red type is the note quote on hold due to plague. But you're free to join her mailing list for updates when classes resume and okay. This favorites question is going to be a two parter. Since Allison's just a font of passion about her work so I does. She have a favorite piece of taxidermy that she has ever seen. Do you have a favorite Diorama in the New York Museum or in the La Museum was the one that you always stop at okay. Do you have a favorite one this one and tell you guys a secret. So there is a Diorama Hall at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and it has not been open to the public for twenty years. They closed it quote unquote temporarily but there is this. Diorama in their of these Sumatran Tigers and it is in this strange like suits in the jungle and it's this Force perspective just. You know it's like you're kind of looking up at this ridge of these two tigers like hiding in there and and it is just absolutely gorgeous. It's a marvel of force perspective and I am one of the few people that have gotten to see it because it's been closed for twenty years and unfortunately and I've been talking with the museum administration. They're actually talking about getting rid of this hall. I know it's it's there's a penguin Diorama in their clouded Leopard African painted dogs. Some of them are completely in disrepair. But there's a high number of them that are really good and really amazing and it's one of four Diorama halls in that museum and so they'd be getting rid of essentially twenty five percent of their dioramas and there are so few diorama halls left in the world right so big they got rid of them and Smithsonian in the eighties. Like all of this stuff so I am begging the administration of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. I've actually had meet a meeting and I am begging them to please not only preserve this hall. But let's restore it. There's an opportunity to maybe even do new dioramas or whatever it is but I'm begging them to preserve this and so if you're a member of the museum in this strikes a Chord with you I do recommend like maybe reaching out to them and letting them know that like you'd really like to see Alice. Markham's favourite DIORAMAS and of course the final most difficult question. And now your favorite thing about texture me. I don't even know how. How are you GonNa Answer this? My favorite thing is what I'm doing now is is you know it's is getting to educate people is my whole thing so the two ways I get to do that is number. One I get to create these amazing specimens. They get people excited about animals right. That's educating people and then another form of educating people is what I'm doing right now with talking to your listeners and talking about the thing that I am so very passionate about this dying art if you will and really getting people to understand this very misunderstood science so that's kind of my favorite thing. I mean I think you can tell like I can go for days on taxidermy. I love it I love it. You're literally one of the world's best man I gotta get her. Those quail corpses not just for science but also it's a legal and I need more room for Mucci. I think I have over two thousand specimens in my freezer. So I've got a lot to keep me keep me busy. That's the great thing my my work was made for the corona virus again. It's completely isolated. Everything is sterile like you know. I'm really making the apocalypse worked for me. You're doing just fine. I got a side of elk in the freezer bottles and bottles of ethanol alcohol. Like you know. I'm good here so ready. Who misses absolutely such a joy? I really appreciate it very much John so excited for this. Listen like whenever there's a new one am thank you so ask smart people stupid.

"Formed without even any sound his mouth just formed the shape of the why why I was like I know. This looks weird. I work for the Natural History Museum. We have a collection permit from the county. I'm working on an exhibit where we need some feral cats and I'm picking up. Let me get you my museum badge and so I showed him my badge and I was like you know it's legal. He didn't say anything for the longest time and then he finally said you know. I do this program with kids. You ever do tours so we ended up doing tour not arrested. Why had the permit legally but if I hadn't I just don't even know what would have happened. Quick aside in the corporate thin apology episode about Crow Funerals Dr Kaley swift made a really excellent point about privilege in science and in field work in its sadly much easier for some white lady to get away with picking up animal corpses than it might be for other people of different backgrounds which why representation is so important and so is equitable treatment by law enforcement. It matters in stem and so does acknowledgement of that privilege. So science is for everyone and it sucks. It's not fair. What else sucks no okay? What about what sucks. What is the worst part of being a taxidermist? There must be something that sucks. I always ask the worst part. The thing that sucks is into really solitary. I'm pretty social person and.

"When you can't go to the mall or really anytime your questions. Can I ask you some Patriot questions? Yeah let's do it. Yeah okay A lot of people Berlin star Jennifer Alvarez Amedure. Dole's Stephanie birdies and Kayla Jane All WanNa know if you have a favorite animal to taxidermy. Okay yes I definitely do. My favorite animal. Taxidermy is so it's definitely birds. I really really love doing birds and a lot of taxidermists like to work on really big stuff. Go bigger. Go home and I'm like no. I'm going to go smaller. Go Home So my favorite thing to work on is hummingbirds. I actually developed like my own technique for doing humming birds. I got to do like I think. I did like thirty of them for this exhibit at the Huntington Library and I did two cases of humming birds. They were replicas of John. Gould's hummingbird cases from eighteen fifty one. Ps I wasn't sure what those were and it turned out a big deal so John. Gould was a British ornithologist and a taxidermist and in eighteen fifty one. He exhibited twenty four elaborate cases. Each was over two feet tall made of ebony wood with Gold Trim and inside each one or between five and fifteen humming birds in this environment of foliage and flowers and thousands of people came to see them at these zoological gardens of Regent Park Include Inc. A guy named Charles Dickens Chucky dicks who wrote a detailed account that Alice used to recreate the look and her two cases. I even had a wood carver car. Exactly what these cases used to be and then he did all these hummingbirds in them and now they live at the more lab at Occidental College but but the jewel of it the jewel of my I I got. I got to do too little baby hummingbirds being fed by their mom. Why Gosh how smaller the tools are you using dental tools for that. I use spinal surgery tools so I work in a fifty five degree room on a frozen marble slab and I keep my tools cold in a like an alcohol slush and I never ever touch them with my hands. Only the metal tools. So that's the that's the secret is keeping them really really really cold so and the fun because the mom is feeding one of the babies with her beak going in the mouth and I've got a little wire in there you can't see and that's how the mom is suspended feeding them in the little ness so I go smart. I went and looked at photos. Of this little allen's hummingbird feeding too low fluff nuggets in a nest and baby hummingbirds by the by can be less than a gram in weight. That's lighter than a dime and just about an inch long so that is an intricate work. And if you're wondering if you can get a crick in your neck. The answer is yes and analysis case one that required recent surgery but more on that later I what about gossip? Let's get into. It just wants to know are there? Any major controversies in the taxidermy world. Every day there's a major controversy in the tanks that are may world. Let me tell you. Oh Yeah we're a tightknit community. There's not that many of us seven hundred worldwide. That talk to each other all the time. And the controversies. Are you know people fighting over which tanning formulas best or things like that so? It's a really imagine. The kind of fights that people get into on like wikipedia pages and now we have this forum on taxidermy dot net and then sometimes over on facebook and we will fight with each other about the minute little details. And it's like you can't beer tails you need to skin them out. You know just like Shit like that. It's so funny I love it. I never get involved but I love it. I love to watch a lot of people. Had questions about ethical sourcing. I regret Jesse Dragon. Rebecca Landry Masami. Fukui actually herbal Roxanne Parker Aaron Ryan Grim Tattersall. Bonnie in Donna heart wanted to know about kind of the ethical aspects cruelty free specimens. And what do you do if you see like an endangered species? That's taxidermied in a like a business. Okay so you know ethically things so like water your ethics you know. Are you okay with a specimen like my birds want to one course? European starlings European starlings are non native to where I live to reach the North America and they are killed by through pest control and so they are shot out of the sky. There are also really bad for our native birds. So do you consider that ethical? I do I think that and also I'm not sending out someone just to kill. They were being killed anyway by someone doing pest control and I'm just getting the dead bodies for other people they you are fine with ordering rats. That would be used for snake food right and working on those. So is that ethical so a taxidermist who is doing Fox's for their client. Their client went out fox hunting. Maybe it wasn't necessarily depredation and that taxidermist is doing it to put food on their table. Is that a good ethic for you. So thank you really have to ask yourself. What's.

"Like how dare you kill this in whatever and I was like? I didn't feel I take those moments rather than start a flame more back for me. It's my job in that moment to educate the public so I was like. Hey just so you know. This came from a wildlife Rehab Fortunately like he didn't make it a lot of times sometimes. Moms will abandon them. And then you know I'm happy. I can put this to good use for education. So yes so. That's the thing but but you know what even so. I will say that deer head on someone's wall somebody eight that are you kidding me. Somebody went out. It might be a trophy so that they can remember getting it but that venison is in that person's freezer it's also in their neighbors. Freezer their best friends freezer like I have L. Can My freezer right now from a friend of mine. Who Hunts? And that's wild meat. It never lived in Penn. You know it's the truest form of free range even with commercial taxidermy. You know there's not a lot of people out there wasting good me. There's just not yeah. What about Big Game Trophy? Hunting safari parks and things like that. Does that ever? Is that a pretty small amount of taxidermy. That's a very small amount of taxidermy. Big Game taxidermist. So now we're going to go into some some like real gray areas right so I think people have to kind of decide for themselves for me. I would never want to go out and hunt an elephant or a lion or Jag. Wire something like that but in certain African countries and you just to name Celek Zimbabwe South Africa if these animals don't have a value than they are considered worthless and I'll just speak about South Africa right now if they are allowing big game hunting of. Let's say a rhino or an elephant generally internationally watched or protected species. They're going to let them hunt a male or a female that has passed breeding age so a person is paying. You know sometimes up to a quarter of a million dollars or more in order to hunt.

"Then I will take a glue we call it hide paste and I put that all over the form so we're going to put a hide paste all over our sculpture. It's nice and wet and we're going to take clay and we put it down inside each one of the digits yes Seals Sea Lions. All that in there they may look like flippers. But they do have individual little digits and so that is all filled with clay just like a glove. Now we're going to take the skin and we lay it over sculpture so the head goes on like a little hoodie and the rest of it. It's just like putting on a onesie right and so that one's Egos on and instead of zipping it up I use. It's called Fire Line. I think it's for fishing. I've never used it for such but it's like a monofilament and we so it up so it all gets sewn up and so after that you will. This is where the taxi comes into taxi. Derm e because taxi means arrange or movement in Germany is Durmus Right Insomnia. Push it down. I'M GONNA push that skin and move it around and finagle it to wherever it needs to be And so in the case of this little harbor seal I had to put it in to the little folds right this chunk or folds and things like that. You're most sculpting the skin where it needs to be from the outside but for a lot of mammals like bobcats mountain lions deer. You know koo-do we. We ended up putting this little liners inside the ears. So that they're they won't fold and all of that and now the face. This is the hardest part is getting the face right. Because where do people look when they look at taxidermy? They look at look at is. Yeah so now we get to what we call tucking. You actually will take the lips and you put on your form. You make a slit and you're GONNA end up talking. The skin into that slid inside form so this process. She says it's called splitting the lips and Allison helped shape them with clay. It's kind of like juvenile arm but taxidermy which then makes me wonder if the science of getting injectables to look younger should just be called Jupiter me anyway. Alice is careful about the shape of the mouth. Oh because you have to do these very very subtle movements in the lips to kind of show like relaxation or fear or delight or or like exactly and if we do open mouth then we we have to do to an even more extreme degree. If we're doing something open mouth. We never use the real teeth so you have to make an artificial jaw said you know with teeth in all of that weight. Why did they ditch the teeth? The reason we don't use the real teeth teeth are used to being in a moist environment and if we take them out of that environment because it's dead the enamel breaks down and they start to crack and fall out so wow I didn't know that yes so just like we make a mold. I talked about making a death mask. We will then make a mold of the teeth and gums and even the tongues and you can make copies of all of that from doing jaw sets for for myself which which I'll do with open mouth things like I had to do in a little bitty island Fox for the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum and it was like snagging a and you know I learned Fox are protected. So there's no jaw set for that. The really tiny and so. I made my own using dental acrylic. And so yeah and so cute all of that but I had to do it. It's super tiny. Little Josette doesn't break down over time. Imagine an open Mouth Mountain Lion. Right and it's got those those that snarl role in the knows where the muscles are to pull up. Hearing about how much science and sculpture is in her work. I realized I totally neglected to ask her about that and the cheeks and the flair of the whiskers all of that. You've got a scope that with clay from the outside and you've gotta get that lip to sit you know the lower jaw.

"Right because it really famous and taxidermy land. But then you kind of take all these techniques that you've learned from different people and you do. It works for you so I I have taxidermy students and I always tell them the wrong way to do it is to say. There's only one way that's how I feel and walk me through basic taxidermy. Because I think that a lot of people think that you take the skin of an animal you stuff it with newspaper and then you so a backup on the bottom and I've not what happens. Oh that hurts my soul to hear that because I know it's true it's so true. Yeah they either think what you just said or they come like an undertaker mortician and I use like formaldehyde and crazy chemicals and neither one of those things are true but basic taxidermy. Is This you start with Prep Aka d construction so I will have an animal and let's say it's a mammal and it's it comes to me dead and it comes to me. Generally speaking frozen and bagged I have visited her studio and she has so many Fraser's just filled to the gills with bags containing frosty birds. Beavers foxes stead raccoons. I saw an Heirloom Swan preserved on ice since nineteen seventy six. She probably got a word hog their stillborn tiger cubs and more just waiting in the chilly wings until it's their time to shine in the glow of her preservation techniques and so I have my frozen animal and I will let it saw out a little bit. I still like to keep it cold right. We like to be like a butcher shop the colder you have the meet the less. It's going to break down on you and I'll take a whole bunch of measurements. You know I will take. I'd knows measurement length of the tail length of each limb each individual joint to joint. We have all these crazy measurements sheets. I take photos you getting myself as as much references. I can on this animal and then we're going to remove the skin so I've heard this described before by other taxidermist. GonNa borrow it. Imagine you're skinning and orange so the rind just kinda comes off and you WanNa try to do that in his few cuts as possible right. So we're kind of skinning it removing that rind right and all the nice juicy stuff on the inside that pests would just love to eat. Vats GOTTA GO BYE bye so. I'm not actually going into any of the organs anything like that. I'm essentially removing the skin. Like you would take off a Hoodie or a onesie right. And so there's a few different incisions you can. Do you know as I like to say. There's more than one way to skin a cat. So that phrase and variations of it by the by has been in use since a sixteen hundred and some think that it originated with the skinning and burning of witches and thus their suspected pets cats but this led me down a real Nestle. I just learned that dried and posed dead. Cats were sometimes hidden in house walls as protection from evil spirits. So if you live in an old house and have great luck there might be a really old dead cat in your wall anyway. Alice has skin animal. And then use what's actually called a Fleischer which is a motored grinder type of gadget that scrapes leftover muscle and membranes from a hide so imagine using like a power tool but instead of sanding down would it just flex flesh off and then the skin itself has to be preserved in the case a mammal. We're going to turn that skin into leather. And that is a process known as tanning. And it's not the kind of tanning we do on the beaches here in California. But it's a it's a chemical process from turning roskin into leather and tanning for humans goes back. Oh I don't even want to guess because I never became that anthropologist but probably ten thousand years in fact you can Tan an animal with its own brain in. Yeah it's called brain tanning and a fun fact of that is every animal has enough brain to Tan. Its own skin. Oh Okay Cook aside yes Egyptians. Thousands of years ago would preserve all kinds of animals. Even hippo mummies have been found and also brain tanning works by boiling brains with water and then applying that as a paste to hide. There's like an oily less than in the brain that moisturizes the Collagen in the skin to make it pliable and preserved but there are other methods of preserving skin that involve letting it soak in P. or in a solution of pigeon droppings. Alice may have a flair for vintage aesthetics. But yet that's that's not what she does the type of tanning I do. It's actually it's really fun. You get into organic chemistry with this but it is called immersion tanning. It actually creates an ionic bond. So it's you know it's really cool so I it goes. The skin goes into an acid pickle and I know it sounds really release scary like Oh my God. You're playing with acid. It's really not uniform. Acid and four make acid diluted enough that it gets down only to on the Ph scale and just to give you an idea of the Ph scale like seven is neutral anything above that is outlined the opposite of acid and then below seven in order to like burn your face off it would be like a negative ten or something like that on the scale so I could give myself a little bit of a chemical burn. But we're pretty safe around the studio with gloves and masks and all of that so But yeah it goes in this acid pickle which is essentially a big bucket with some salt and some acid and with acid does is. It stretches out the molecules of the skin. So we're actually changing the skin on a molecular level so it's stretching out that molecule and it's making space for a new ion and so after it's been in the pickle for like a week two weeks six months if you're doing a cow then yeah you pull it out and you can then put it in another bucket now. We'll sound SCIENC- but it just looks like buckets. And then we have some salt in there as well. We always have salt in the water. Because SALT IS HYDROPHOBIC. And so it's GonNa let the skin absorbed some of the water but not too much of it. The salt is kind of like puts the brakes on the skin getting too much moisture. And so then what happens is you add The commercial term for it is Lieutenant F. And it's an actual little ion and it goes into the molecule and Zap all of a sudden. It's no longer Ross skin. It's leather no way he asked. We make our own leather. Only it has like eyelids and Tauze and foot pads so yeah. Wow announced tanning it. Also protects against pests in decomposition. Yeah.

"I could do anything what would it be and I was like I wanna work in museums and I wanna I think I wanna be a taxidermist and I just and then I was like you know what I'm just GonNa do it. It was just wild hair that I got and every day I wake up with that same wild hair and go to work. I wonder if anyone does classes. I wonder if I could learn this anywhere and so I found this little school in Montana. We were only four students and I just did like a short two week program so this was the advanced taxidermy. Training Center in Thompson falls about one hundred miles north west of Missoula. And I just looked it up on a map and I realized that my two thousand nine ward family reunion was only about fifteen minutes away and now I'm Hella pissed and I didn't know about this place sooner and It was enough to get me started. It was more geared towards what we call commercial. Taxidermy doing Your whitetail deer. You're you know you're skunk keer whatever. It is like things like this which is considered it's also called trophy work and that was not exactly what I wanted to do. I really wanted to do museum taxidermy. So I got back down to La and Kinda stalked Timbo Vard. Who's the museum taxidermist at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and I mean seriously like I figured out like his email address and like you know I really stocked him and got him to agree to meet with me then? Got Him to agree to let me volunteer. And then I just showed up like every day and I think at some level he was too embarrassed. Like not to hire me. So tell me a little bit about Tim. I understand that he is the original dude at the Natural History Museum. What kinds of things did you learn from him in does taxidermy? How like a lot of apprenticeships? Is that how it's kind of passed down? Yes tax is one of those things where it is very old school and you you do end up. Hopefully in an apprentice mentor situation. Definitely to this day like you'll always be my mentor. I call him my taxidermy. Dad I will literally call his house and his wife goes your daughter's on the phone. Oh yeah the. He's just he first off. He's the most amazing kind curious patient. She's lovely person you'll ever meet. I want to put him in his own little Diorama and keep him for a walk but he he's wonderful and so what what it really is with learning. Is that in taxidermy? We're preserving animals and that's like saying we are painting pictures. There are so many different ways to do this. This art slash this science. So you're learning. I The way that your mentor wants to you to learn it. You know the ways and then they'll kind of in my experience. Tim Really widened the scope. He's like okay. This is the four hundred year old technique for doing birds. Were GONNA use wrapped bodies? Were going to you know. Just put clay and here are the is whatever and from those wrapped bodies that you might see in collection drawers. She moved onto carving body shapes and casting heads up and up the ranks of difficulty and artistry learning from the Masters as she went. I have gone and trained with other taxidermist. So I've gone down to Texas and worked with Danny Owens. I've gone up to Canada and work with Ken Walker. I've gone to Europe in learn from people like Peterson and jazz. Jack Fish Fishwick. I'm sure these are all names. You all know.

"Hey It's that in the movie who accidentally looked right at the camera twice. Even though he was told specifically to Allie Ward. Back with a new episode of an old old old allergy. So I have had this topic in my sights for years after once In my twenties at like midnight in my studio apartment I found myself using a hacksaw to cut into a skull over bathtub. My cousin had found a deer skull in a field and I was trying to mount. Just the antlers. It's no way to do it. But that brings us to this week's gorgeous and gory and storied art of taxidermy. That's right so there is an apology for that thrillingly. But first let's thank the Patriot club a Patriot dot com slash gs for making the show possible rain or shine and sending in their questions. It costs as little as twenty five cents an episode to join that. And thank you to everyone. Who's been telling friends about the show and who's rated and subscribed which keeps us up the charts and of course for the folks that live reviews for me to read on the darker days like these fresh ones. Elana cotta said that they made it through the entire back catalogue. Congratulations in Krista. To at eight says they listened to ninety nine episodes while sewing fabric. Facemasks okay. We're GONNA do it. So this is a real allergy and it means the science of stuffing animals for display. It's also called taxidermy. And I looked hither and dither intizar and Y'all I could not find the etymology of this. One I'm guessing comes from Nass in Latin for nose or from the Germanic Nass for wet. So perhaps it's the study of wet skin. God only knows I don't but I have known this for years and I visited her studio here in. La I have two dead quail in my freezer for her. They were sadly window strikes though be put to good use. I'm excited to give them to her. she is known as an ethical taxidermist. She deals with animals who died of natural causes or of reasons not for the sake of stuffing and she runs a business called pray taxidermy and they offer classes and she handles just a veritable arc load of animals preserved for museum collections for institutions. And she was really beautifully captured in last year's documentary stuffed which is gorgeous. She's carved a niche as like a bad ass. Darling of the taxidermy world. She's earned her ranks through just meticulous work and these artful mounts and state and world championship. Titles she also decide note. Looks like a raven haired bombshell on like a nineteen fifties movie poster in his usually dressed with some kind of vintage flair and perfect eyebrows. But she swears like a sailor and she left like sunshine and preserves roadkill as a career. She has in a word. Everyone's dream woman so despite the two frozen birds taking up precious pizza space in my freezer we last met up. Virtually from houses about a mile apart and this episode is just a glorious mix of nature appreciation and real talk and warning you will hear details of how dearly departed specimen goes from like a song corpse to stunning art. And it's no worse than what you do when you're preparing chicken for dinner but it will make you appreciate your next stroll through a museum that much more. No sharp scuffles fastener aprons for a chat all about following dreams and attention to detail. Animal Conservation Flesh Crap. Taxidermy seal blubber antique. Ornithology leaving the tech for Victorian artistry of your and what it's like to date someone who has freezers full of debt stuff with globally lauded tax adobe icon and neurologist. Alice Markham neurology is a term that you've heard him but people told he was too old to use. Yes so it's not used a lot. I really like it and I heard it before Very early in kind of researching taxidermy and wanting to learn this kind of did our. If you will and I read about the term it was actually an old taxidermy textbook and there is such things and then I kinda had asked a few people mostly like commercial taxidermists at the school. I went to Montana and there were like. Where did you hear that? No one says that anymore and so yeah it. Just kind of got lost a little bit to the ages but I think I think it should have a comeback an. How did you end up going to taxidermy? School in Montana like were you the kind of kid that was finding dead stuff in ravines or were you like an indoor kid know me and my sister joked that when we grew up we had one toy and it was called outside go. That's what we had. We grew up in Indiana and also Florida and we just had nothing but the great outdoors. And we've really me and my sister. We always like bugs and the I was always fascinated by animals and I was always finding animal bones. Her business skin or whatever it for and was always fascinated by it and so really grew up with a lifelong love of nature and also science. I really loved science growing up yet. I ended up going to school. A little bit for anthropology got into marketing. Had this whole other career where I worked for Disney I was the director of Social Media Strategy and then I kinda lost my marbles and I did. I really did. It was not a good work environment for me. It was what I fell into. But you know it's funny. I had been collecting taxidermy and collecting all of these little natural history. Creating my cabinet of curiosities which is so so much. Have so much in common with my taxidermy. Students Allah says that she was always an outdoor kid romping through fields and searching for bones and dead things in the wilds of our Indian upbringing. But when did the taxidermy bug I and to her life like when did you really get that? First Butterfly You know I remember when I first Moved to New York so you still live in New York. I moved there like eighteen years old for college and I went to the Natural History Museum and So the American Museum of Natural History and it just it was like I was in church but like a church I was like excited for an on board for it was just like everything was like. Mahogany and quiet. And then you look up in these amazing dioramas and I just never seen anything like that. I'd grown up around taxidermy. You know it was a thing but not like this. When I moved to New York I knew one person there and I moved there in the summer and so I spent the entire summer learning that place like a back of my hand and I didn't know anyone in New York but I knew that museum and I would take people in little impromptu tours. Like just kidnap tourists and I did this. I was like weird kid and I just. I knew that museum and then when I moved to La a number of years later. I fell in love with Armor Museum here and the Dioramas here and I just always wanted to work in museums and so finally you know when I lost my marbles at Disney asked myself if I could do anything what would it be and I was like I wanna work in museums and I wanna I think I wanna be a taxidermist and.

Boris Returns: British Prime Minister Returns to Work

"The British prime minister Boris Johnson is back at work on two two weeks convalescence following hospital treatment for coronavirus which included three days in intensive care his re emergence into public life comes at a time when there is pressure from within his own party I'm from business leaders to ease locked restrictions and reopen the economy but speaking outside his London residence number ten Downing Street Mr Johnson said he would resist that pressure the risk of a second outbreak was too great well I know it is tough I want to get this economy moving as fast as I can but I refuse to throw away all the efforts and the sacrifices of the British people and to risk a second major outbreak and huge loss of life and the overwhelming of the NHS what is because the Markham Rifkind a former British Foreign Secretary of served in the cabinets of Margaret Thatcher and John Major how significant in his view was Boris Johnson's return to work a Downing Street today well the government's work to perfectly well but it would say it's a very good coincidence in the sense that he is physically able to be back in the harness just as the government has to reach a decision on the fundamental question of the future of the lock out and whether we can ease the country's traditions of that is the sort of decision that really requires the prime minister's involvement as well as the cabinet as a whole do you see him as being a changed man in terms of his attitude towards the lockdown I mean he is said to it to be instinctively a libertarian and may be reluctantly embraced the lockdown but ten seems to have changed his mind I'm not sure that he's changed his mind and I think you you know you did never declared somebody with his views the same would apply to almost anyone who was prime minister is very reluctant to introduce a lock down which means the curtailment of people's civil liberties for an indefinite period of time that's a huge decision so I'm not surprised that there was a reluctance to do it until it became necessary once you've got it obviously the details different but the difficulties are not that different having got the status quo have beginning to see the policy working it's getting old in the right direction so you you then have to take that crucial decision and it's not an easy one so I'm not surprised that in his remarks today from ten Downing Street Hey he was reminding people we have to go but it gorgeous day he did not rule out of any early easing the law card I still believe that's what's likely to happen but he wanted to make sure that people just didn't assume that everything that was going to go back to normal it over the next few days of the next week because but undoubtedly his own experience of the corona virus must have changed his approach is attitude I'm not sure it would change his view on policy I am as a person of course you can find see your death in the in the in the face baited realize how your life's a tottering by somebody's uncertain their expectations without that having an impact on you as a customer but they they it if you've never got coronavirus the kind of decision you'd be having to take the day and my guess is is attitude to how we deal with it would not be very different to what we're saying there is that it would appear quite a debate going on within the Conservative Party as to the speed at which the actor lockdown should be eased well this is the big day out in the country is not peculiar to the Conservative Party are good members of parliament applies to all of us to price for you and me and every citizen of this country and now we are sitting most of the western countries I have begun a lot yeah I know in that case most of the day but with the the damage done by the virus began earlier I said since since not surprising there are beginning to ease up slightly earlier but the government said commitment at the moment is that the current restrictions continue for another ten days that is actually quite useful because over these ten days not in it does the government have the experience of what is happening in those countries that have already used to log in it also provides more time to be certain that the downward trend of the virus which we have seen now since April the eighth is continuing I may be going more slowly than we would like but it's all in the right direction will be another week closer to this be certain of that is the case and that's likely to be what happens but it also it it gives the government the time it needs to work out how you implement to the easing that they're almost certainly consider it I mean for example that people are getting back to work A. each industry is different as to the ways in which you can ensure social distancing what is going to be the best no people in terms of contact omitted with their families with the close friends is not just the in principle is that going to be eased but how could it be done what about the particular circumstances people mostly very very elderly people who are also people with serious illnesses are serious underlying health problems these are all issues of the to impact on the economy in matters of that kind so I'm not surprised you will want to take advantage of the next week Sir you remember some modicum of lady Thatcher's cabinet when the van health secretary Joe mole spoke of a move to a health care system based on private insurance similar to the American model it's seven it's difficult to imagine such an idea getting any traction today isn't it well yes but it was equally difficult in the government the just believe that was gonna happen and the government of John Major in which I served or the governments of the David Cameron or Theresa may we do have a healthy private sector in the relation to health it is a significant part of the health system but it also works very closely with an NHS indeed at this very moment quite a number of private hospitals are being used with their agreements by the NHS in order to quarantine people who have problems other than growing the virus from going into hospitals where they might get infected from the virus as

What to make of Blackhawks moves on NHL trade deadline day

"And talk a little bit more about what the Blackhawks did we bring in Charlie a room only autos from Anna corona hotline from N. B. C. sports Chicago Charlie how are you tonight Fred you nailed my last name they're not a lot of people can do that on the first try well I've been I've said it three times during the show so I try to get it right it is actually the more you look at it the more it is exactly like it's spelled sell it all but that is I'm I'm sure I'm sure you've got a letter from cap though well yeah well I in everything we've all got lessons from cap have only let's be honest yeah yeah we generally did did the Blackhawks get get done what they wanted to do today I think the goal and Stan Bowman even said this in a conference call it should basically recruit some of those graphics that they gave up for the end you're salty on it and try to get a you know they got a goal tender in return in a defenseman prospect but I think if you put them on a lie detector test or some truth serum okay perfect probably would have loved to get a first round pick out of out of today is that the reality is the market wasn't really to their favorite like six six first round picks removed in the month of February and neither one of those picks removed for rental so the Blackhawks moved to other youth expiring USA then they got a second round pick in the end plus prospects and then a third round pick forgot to send in a little bit underwhelming but you know that's what the market dictated it's interesting you bring that up Charlie because I guess the question at this point that is do you think the hawks waited too long in determining whether or not they were to sell it because obviously they had a little run there you know in the end of the at the end of December and January what it felt like they were getting hot do you think they maybe put too much stock in the fact that they were playing well but you know at the same time they they were still on the outside looking in it when when you're finally you know got around to the trade deadline here yeah it it's a good point and you wonder if the the blackouts could have gotten more for robin Lehner if they had treated him earlier but at the same time went when they come out of that bye week and they come out with a big win against Arizona like if they had it really had quite off type vibes where this team was close to knocking on the door and then you go on that five game western Canada trip and if you take care of business there like you're you're probably gonna be about a playoff spot if you pick up six seven point six or eight points on that trip and and that the fact they only picked up a few things started to spiral then obviously the we saw a lot of trade happened last week where a lot of defenseman got moved in and you wondered if the Blackhawks were gonna pull the trigger on America if it's been deleted get out in front of that but they stayed patient and I don't know if they were trying to package and Eric Gustafson with another asset like a robin letter to try all the packaging of the return and try to get that first round pick that they're covering but unfortunately they weren't able to make it happen Charlie you mentioned letter there and I think a lot of hawks fans are wondering he he will reportedly he was willing to consider a three year deal with the hawks now you know I don't know if we've seen confirmation of that report but it's out there that robin Lehner was willing to potentially talk a three year deal with the hawks do you think that something that was truly in their interest or do you think they just don't want to be locked up long term with robin Lehner due to maybe a quirky history to say the least well I I'm not sure about it because robin Lehner is on record saying that he didn't want to take a discount like you felt like you wanted to be paid market value and and he deserves that what whatever he was asking for he deserves what he wants and if the Blackhawks were gonna offer him he offered what he wanted like he had every right to take it to and and has every right to take it to the summer and get exactly what he's looking for the the fact that if you know the Hawkins did offer a three year deal letter would have been willing to take lasted it do a three year deal I feel like the team would have pulled the trigger on it because I I don't know necessarily if they were looking to try a lot of money and term to to robin letter because that's just not exactly how they operate in it we see all around the NHL now teams are very reluctant to give big contracts to goaltender than in the Florida Panthers are seeing it right now they they find Sir David Gonski two an eight year contract worth ten point five million dollars and he has been performing this season so I think maybe that's also what is scaring off the hawks and wanted to have that type of security with the goaltender another couple minutes where's Charlie Roumeliotis from the Blackhawks insider at NBC sports Chicago the guys they get back for a for a letter is is that yes they need to get some names back or is to Bangor to be their back up for the rest of the season or what you know what's going on yeah I imagine so I read in Markham Sudan will be the Blackhawks is back up you know barring any injuries and I know the Blackhawks do have calling deleon Kevin Lincoln in downtown Rockford who have both been playing really well like Kevin like that had a really good start to the season that now his play has tailed off Collin Delia really struggled at the beginning of the year and now he's been really good so if you have two young goaltenders in Rockford but I imagine now comes through and it's probably gonna be grooms here said to either be the backup going forward at least for the rest of the season and then we'll see beyond this year Charlie do you think a Jonathan Tay's will finish his career with the Blackhawks there's been rumblings are speculation mostly from fans that you know he could be somebody down the line the hawks might consider moving if they they were able to get a hall for him but to me Jonathan tapes just seems like the type of player who gently down the Blackhawks want retiring in a Blackhawks Jersey yes absolutely and I I don't blame Patrick Kane Jonathan three Duncan Keith those core players I don't blame them for being frustrated like they want to win in Chicago but the the problem is if they don't want to go somewhere else to win another ring like their soul that and they have no movement clauses in their contracts read that they want to spend the rest of your career here in Chicago and they want to win the Stanley Cup again in Chicago so I don't see that it man it would be if thirteen is out of date senior retired Black Hawk that it wouldn't feel right if they if they went somewhere else Charlie one last quick one for you what is the biggest need for the hawks this offseason to try and get them back on track and into the playoff conversation next year yes hi it's tough because you kind of want to see how this you know they've been battered by injuries particularly that of the blue line with Calvin Han and Brent Seabrook and then Andrew Shaw you know I would I would sail and it is those guys need to get healthy first and then you want to see how your developments are going with Adam vocalist and Kirby dach but to me ideally like you need you need another top six winger like you need another top six four they have Jonathan Tate and Kirby docking Dylan Strome and and obviously Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat but they don't have really that photo type scoring winger that can help balance out the lines and I'm not saying that the Blackhawks have it all made on their depth on their defensive group because they tell but you look at the reality is they have five guys under contract for at least the next two seasons after that and that's not even including Adam vocalist and potentially Ian Mitchell so I want to say a top four defenseman but it just didn't seem feasible because all the they have all these guys tied up Charlie I know it's been a long day we appreciate jump around for a few minutes no problem guys thanks for having me

When the fear is worse than the disease

The Big Story

When the fear is worse than the disease

"Are you scared of the corona virus if so what exactly are you scared of why. How does that fear show up in your life right? You do anything differently or do you just worry. Even if you're not really afraid how do you feel when you see somebody a couple of seats over from me on the bus where amass. What if they start coughing? And you see the latest numbers of cases and deaths in China and other countries. Who are what you blame why? This is all psychology but it is important because fear makes otherwise rational people irrational and it gives the ugliest impulses that people can have an opportunity to take the wheel and for the worst of us. It's not even even here. It's just an excuse. So how can we fight. The other. Viral infection at candidate is facing the one that is so far harming a lot more more people than a disease. That's almost exclusively on the other side of the world Jordan Heathrow this is the big story. Evelyn Kwong a digital producer at the Toronto Star. She also writes a weekly column about social media. Hello Hi how are you. I'm doing all right Before we start because we're going to talk about the real impact of the corona virus and Canada before we do that to give us some perspective. Can you give us an update. It is Monday afternoon as we're talking What is the scope of this worldwide? And what's the scope of it in Canada so right now in Canada as of Monday we have four cases in Canada One and BBC two in Toronto and one in London The latest one was the woman in London and she's in her twenties apparently because she's younger. She had like a you know the immune system is a little bit better. She's actually just home quarantine so they're think those cases are ones they can tackle and that could be solved by the Canadian health system. So actually here. It's not a crazy or like fearful kind of Epidemic or anything. That's happening right now. That's what we're hearing from the public health officials so basically. It's not something that we need to worry about that much in Canada and they didn't really have to suspend any flights or anything but Air Canada just one on their own to make their own decisions to suspend plates for a month from Beijing and Shanghai but they said that's on their own accord The world there are there have been three hundred sixty one deaths as has of Monday afternoon mostly from China and one being the first out of country one being from in the Philippines a forty four year old man just recently they add I think last last week they declared it a Global health emergency only for the reason that countries that didn't have as good as a health system as China wouldn't be able to handle that kind of situation so I think they're kind of seeing that with the person in the Philippines who just passed away. I think that was just on Saturday too. So it's interesting because you said that in Canada we don't have of a crazed fearful epidemic. We definitely do not and our officials are telling that straight to us to use the word fearful and there is fear here there are definitely is fear because a whole different thing. That really reminds me of the two thousand and three SARS situation. Why don't we start with that? Because I should note that you wrote your column on this you also so Spoken about it a lot on twitter. And it's why we wanted to talk with you so start with that. What do you remember about that experience as an Asian woman in Candida well? At that time I was only in grade three but you already feel that and I feel that when you're in when you're that young still to internalize that sort of every day kind of raises them. Which which does happen you know like before the sourcing people would ask me weird questions like if I ate dog but then in two thousand and three it would become this whole different thing where people friends ends of mind would actually start moving across the room and not sitting with me for lunch or really questioning what I was eating and it could be just something normal? Tofu and is Asian food. Because that's what my mom made a home right so it would just be something that I felt really embarrassed about and not understanding my identity fully. I would throw those launches out and not eat them because I just felt so so shameful of having them in front of me and just people surrounding me and other than my own experience I would see my mom kind of. She doesn't have like she can speak English but I think when she has to defend herself in that situation she someone who immigrated here from Hong Kong. It's not her first language so I didn't really know how to defend her being that young and she kind of just told me like let's just kind of void. Everybody if we can you know wanting to be invisible and when you started to hear the news of the Krona Virus Three weeks ago. It's out of China. Was your first thought I was already. I knew there was a huge backlash. GonNa come through not like not just in Canada but America in other Western countries. I I knew that it was coming and it was something that I think tweeted a long time ago even before we had one case here. I'm like I can't not I can't wait but I'm like I just know this is going to happen or something and that totally. Julio did take place as well and as much as we try to you know make sure the misinformation of like you know. Don't go to Chinatown like all that is not real and all. That doesn't need to be sad ed or it's actually not scientifically proven but to this day. We're seeing a lot of implications not just like for personal experience and of course that's important but a lot of small businesses in Chinatown in a town or in Markham to places where there's predominantly a Chinese community. They're feeling crazy impacts from this. Give me some examples so one example is that I mean. I don't know if everyone one knows what six buzzes but six buzzes kind of like I would say a Social Media News conglomerate thing that's four young people and as much as it is great. That young people have something thanks to look forward to. They're spending a lot of misinformation so one example is that they took a photo they were sent before took a photo of this noodle shop in Markham called Wuhan Noodle much is obviously horrified like for most people seeing that it's still going to trigger them to feel type of way. They put it on their instagram. They have one point four million followers and by no means no science behind it just saying like tag someone you would want to eat here or like tag the person that should eat here implicating like you're kind of finding one person you wanNA Wish some harm by eating this place but really when we we had a reporter go out from Toronto DOT COM which is kind of sister paper they went out and spoke to the owner and and they said they've lost two thirds of their business. which is I mean? That's just really sad for someone who said they came to Canada with the dream of opening their little business and you know making their life year. Now they're really feeling the repercussions which are not scientifically based at all. Like if you eat there is not going to change things. They don't have that soup and I think that was the first line that came out of that article. It was a quote by them. Saying we don't have perhaps soup we don't serve that so it's like all the stuff that you're the justify which kind of seems weird when you're in Canada and a lot of Asian people in Asian Jasper. Don't don't eat those sort of things but it's like now. We ought to kind of defend ourselves in that way. Can you explain a little bit about the role that Stereotypes from Western folks around Asian Food in Asian culture. In general play in this This treatment one hundred percent so it started back even like from inception of our country With the Chinese head taxes which basically started because they brought Chinese laborers from China and just use them as kind of like workers for the railroad and other things and if some of them mm died they'd just bring more of such a punishment or something like that and to deter them from bringing their own families to Canada. Because it didn't want Chinese people here they would put a fifty dollar head talks on them. So it's kind of like that kind of started that whole thing and it's been something that has happened in all Western countries but it's kind of overall fear or mystery around Chinese Chinese people or Asian people in general and then when the food starting cub started coming here and America's Wall N. in Canada. I believe there's a New York Times review that in in the sixties Caesar seventies that said Oh. MSG is really bad for you and also Chinese restaurants are really dirty. And that's where the whole notion came from you can obviously find. Videos goes of people eating different foods and different cultures. And that's all they know and of course. I wish that there was a way to show the different health implications of all these things but when it comes to that even to this day people still have that stereotype of you know. Do you guys eat dogs. Like I was literally asa question two years ago by a stranger. And it's like very strange to hear obviously for me But even for anybody because not many people do that and it's just like because you've seen one video on social media now you're going to expand it and say every Asian person does that. It's it's kind of sad so there's always been a fear around Asian food and this whole idea that the things that Asian people aren't really civilized and and gross. Honestly this is gonNA GONNA sound like an extremely white question of meat asks. But when you're speaking with other folks in the Chinese community and you talk about this virus and what you're experiencing in Toronto around it. What are those conversations like there? I mean it's really disheartening. And you can actually see it on social media the good thing about the fact act that we have social media now is that we have people telling their stories you know. Hey my mom just got yelled at by a person who's in a car saying you're infected or like different stories or is that people are sharing about what's happening in the situation. It kind of brings a human lens like how can you really tell someone how sad they felt about this or that because it shows you that this place can be crazy easy like we all like to talk about Canada's sometimes as a multicultural blanket and that's all it is but really there are things that happened day-to-day that and this is not just a just because of krona's ars but it's only elevated because of that so speaking to them I think what I've learned from them and what we have kind of come to realize that we kinda need to share experiences so staring that sorry experience of mine was something that people were like. Wow I can't believe that people who are Kinda confused about how this fearmongering really works. It was just like hey I'm a Girl was born in. Canada doesn't didn't travel anywhere but still I had to throw my lunches because I felt so embarrassed to be part of that or even linked to that asianise that I had so so I think right now all we wanna do is step up and mostly. It's it's angry. People are angry in the Chinese community. People are sad but the way to fight it is with also just sharing their own stories and also hoping allies step in as well. What do I need to do? I feel like there's a lot of misinformation and I wouldn't want I wouldn't wish wish it on anyone to just scroll all through twitter and report stuff and fight people. I think that doesn't work at all. I think one thing is just take it off social media and talk to someone in that community. It doesn't necessarily have to be you. Of course. The Chinese community is really reeling from this but also Asian communities are are as well because they are often mistaken as being Chinese. anyways doesn't like no one really kind of looks beyond the fact that you could look Asian and asks you where you're from so I think it's about speaking with someone in that community and understanding a human level of like. Hey what's going on. I wonder how you feel feel I think that would really change your mind and before for some people who are really active on twitter and just want to give their thoughts and just put their thoughts out there. I think it's good to just reevaluate and check with someone and who's going. Maybe he's probably going through it. You spend an awful lot of time on social media. The point of your column in the Star. was that when something like this happens it makes it worse.

"Riggan discuss how to secure articles for smart contracts with special insights from chain link. And I'm very pleased. Used to have yuan product manager and evangelist at chainlink John. Thank you for joining us today. Could you please give our listeners. A quick introduction on yourself yourself. Hey thanks for having me Yeah sure side. Jones space a few years ago origin so I was always presented by Bitcoin by Theam wasn't relating to the topic of interoperability. When Jennings channing basically made a lot of sense to me fill? Did the gap for me. We take this space. which is we have so many ambitions than such a great vision for the Bloodshed because stem which is three plays the real work right. But in order to transition you need to be able to connect the rewards to some blockchain and two blocks networks. I think a few the months ago now and yet it's been three working on this project which basically for me is filling a gap user industry. And I think we're making huge. Basically big strides rides towards creating more connected word through blockchain technology. Excellent accent so thank you very much for that. So as it has caused me here injure blocks. Could you please explain explain to our listeners. What is blockchain and how does it work? Yeah sure I mean luxury very simply ledger right. Ledger is basically a records of transactions. Where basically you engine ducts balances of every addresses on the network right it? So it's basically a decentralized ledger which people from over the words can update experimentation nece. It's transparent everything. Everything is public right like Bitcoin so in its current very simple in concept right displeasure like ledger is exist everywhere. Liking banks for instance banks today keep track a few JR ledgers huge databases recording transactions. Right the big did the selling point of ructions that it's fully decentralized and it's free public and it comes at the points in our than the word food where centralization transparency yet Burma can have tremendous impacts in the way people interact between one and the nicer Sir right so basically. We started out with Bitcoin and away. With your address you can create so much choosing basically the simple concept of of distributed ledger. You can create an revolutionize the way people interact with each other using disconnect checked and using what here mattered to the basic concepts of bitcoin. Great great thank you very much for that. So since you've already given us a few definitions I'm going to ask another one. which is could you give us? A quick definition of what is a smart contract it's key properties and how they differentiate themselves from traditional shnell contract. Yeah sure I mean contracts contracting the real word right. Let's start by this. Is People want to interact his each other. They don't trust each other because why would say people tried to basically each time right so they. They give dressed with archie rights and third parties to enforce that contract executes as it should now. He's third partisan today's Dan Edge. Our our banks are huge institutions which basically has accumulated power rights. And these are people who basically enforce Zicklin trucks trucks after. Today's society. Now what smart. Trump's at of you to do is to embeds allergic and Tang Soo enforcement for contract on Puzo blockchain rights so whenever contract into executed if it's if contract or if it's an insurance contract thanks to properties of bloodshed and to the priorities are smuggled trucks talks which are basically deterministic outputs. Whatever input you get you get the desired output right output chicken project and you can have basically trust less contracts from people who don't know each other from one part of words to Yaser so to that could get into twit agreement with someone in China or someone in Malaysia or wherever and trust disagreement will work? Because it's enforced forest. Both my contract and just Markham product is based on hysteria or any uneasy as which is basically public trust less and Ike interest entrusts message of course now if smart contracts servewell revolutionary secure and useful earned being used regularly by enterprises around the world? It's a great question. I think it takes a lot of time to basically adopted Right so in. Today's skin through damage enterprises whenever they get something which is working are which is hard for king which is a current system. Today is a stick to its rights So I can do the same situations as we have today. Where basically enterprises we probably start with? UPS Markham threats Wednesday. Start seeing to be fed yours. There's current system produces and I think. Actually we're getting some really was jim results from enterprises Google and other like minded businesses which she's revolutionary power is at smartphones and are starting to work towards them basically are searching to other than to start in tweets. It takes some time for the full switch but I think we really answer right where it now

"Ish one of its former campus campus director showed Promoted cottage for Maas. Oh sure he attended by calm but the debt Hamas terrorists I mean questioned must be but they've had a cottage for Himmler Dallas. The yes still. I mean the number of times I've been no platforms on university campuses. This is extraordinarily I. Let's Exter- K. and say that it's fundamental named extra Jewish Societies. Society are raising money for Islamic Relief. A charity the indirectly gives money to come us but they wouldn't have me on campus episode because they regard mind Zionism to be too extreme. Even though I'm committed to ensuring that every civilian Israel regardless of nationality not race religion is protected given the same civil rights to everyone else. I regard extremists. These Jason Activity rate this Jaso his activity activity raising money for charity. Indirectly gives Logan is ation prescribed medication. This committed in relation of Israel and other example NAUSEAM JAS so I had some really nasty anti Semitism campus lately. The Hat Chris Williamson come to campus. But they will not purpose because they believed we must show we that they believe. Jews must take more Mike Rounds and the best ways my anti Semitism is again to elevate ourselves into and to enter won't to gain the approval of anti see. IDC my it's always hate us. What's essential is that? They hate US strong. They don't notice week. I'd much because it's exactly what they want. They want us to be talking about force notion of an occupation want us to be bashing Israel every opportunity chintzy because that's their that's their that's their means of that for the past week Condo into that trap so as a result I'm I guess people perceive me to be a kind of pariah in a sense because I do believe that Roth's and accepting the myths which I believe historically Anti Anti Semites always formulate a series as the backbone of their antisemitism. I believe the best. What we must do is destroy? Destroy the mix all as I said the backbone of the Anti Semitism otherwise the Anti Sandwich of your of it more fuel. Hurry sorry. This is A prospectus really feel future. We've seems to me incompatible with living in Brittany Olsen I presume it's You will be making on the Israel at the end of your studies for soon. So I I'm I'm kind of I. G studying The book to be. I hope to go soon as possible. I don't wish to standardize. I'd I don't believe I believe. The situation is mutual. I believe in Corbin goes. Kuban is the lives of demographics off just on our side and you know I. I don't believe the future is in the dust route. My principal objective isn't isn't with non-jews. My principal objective is to bring Jews is close to Zionism. Apathy is my greatest concern. I'm not both by cheesy. Might say but I am but not to the extent that both by Giuseppe Zionism is Is the movement aspect say that it was empowered us and I read. Upsets me for straights may choose to constantly feel the need to appease it's the or legitimize the I guess the by two peration designed subjected to I I I totally believe that should be joined now knowing. See like you when you go your whole identity and political viewpoint. We'll be changed just by the media in which you mix. You will no longer be a swinger against antisemitism what will will be as an Israeli citizen. I mean you won't be on campus in Peta Tikva so telling it to the point down and be and it gets again as honesty. Won't be on dancing there. John well lets you know that. That's comforting seriousness down. You won't be you know on the you use this word because it's the wrong word but on the only extremes of Jewish thinking because you'll be poor of this Jewish media what Kinda plus me being as as little it'll change your view overlook my Jovan the Diaspora. It's Bert surroundings. I don't care about who is is in power and its route. I might have my personal views but my job is my job in the east to support Israel unapologetically unconditionally regardless of who is empowered. Israel's American Merritt government which is possible that I support is still split. Israel has a government of Israel regardless of who is empower. My job is to be a supporter and defenders row against the malicious lies. It is accused of when I am in Israel which is inevitable I went and see. Bob Aspire I aspire to become an academic of I believe that the mistrial but then Israel I. There are many changes that I wanted to make in terms of I represent the negative. Trump didn't ski. I want to bring Zionist closer. To Israelis spent anti meat to in terms of. I think one of the things were as if I'm being on strike. It's ready to society is that I always raiders not so Zionists Thornton philosophy and I I want to bring his right is closer to Zionist Jewish thought of to make sure Zionism awesome still has a future and Israeli society. Don't Zionism to be an IT. Obsolete shoplifting spoke with the idea of great designers designers my two phases firstly absorbed Jewish state. And then bring Jews closer to the spiritual on the concept design. Is that the centrality of Zionism and identity identify. I think Israel is in my opinion just through speaking to them are lacking in in that kind of relationship. I want to bring in. Close some sure. That'd be kind of stickiness. In Israel and the words stick continue to thrive in a predominantly Mizrahi culture in Israel clip. Thank you is what I say Harry. Thank you very much thank you thank you.

"But it I just don't know exactly. What's area? I will wanna talk about like how I wanted to approach the topic as it's a very large topic. And there's lots of there's lots of information about it out there already. So I just need to figure out exactly how I wanna frame it. Well, yeah. I mean, that's hard our whole industry. Now. There's so much information about everything, but still your take and your experience are really valuable, right? I people sometimes say I can't blog because anything I want to write about somebody else's written about it. Yeah. And they always will. To go back to what you save on your posture. Actually is probably a big factor in what has been an front image figure out. How I want to approach this particular challenge. Right. A book because feels like well again, who am I to write a book on the subject? You know, am I really thority? And again thinking of all people read about this before people have more experience doing this kind of thing that means so it's it's a. Becomes hard to get over that that voice of doubt in your own mind to let you do something to take that next step in the what I find helpful. I think the web not as a collection of thority, but as a community, and we're all just figuring it out. And some people are just motivated to share what they've learned. They got saying they're an expert or their authority in by the way, you said earlier that the more the better known you get the harder. The worst your imposter syndrome is I also found that the better known. I get the hardest for me to say, I don't know how to do that. I make a point of saying it, but it's hard people. Don't believe it. I was taking. A test at my new job, and they said like rate your own skills because that's something they make everybody do and I gave myself with three five and CSS. And they were like that's ridiculous. You can't you wrote the book on it. And I'm like, I wrote a book ten years ago. I yeah. Threes, kind of generous actually, and I'm like, I know Eric Meyer and Rachel Andrew and Jen Simmons like believe me three as generous. And they're like, okay. Well, you're being humble. And I'm like, I'm really not. I'm actually aware of how much there is to note, and they might give themselves threes or fours right for all. I know they might say there's more than I don't know. So I think if you don't try to be an expert if you're just one of the people that's doing work and people are noticing your work, and you wanna share what you're learning it gives you permission to write at least. That's what I tell myself if that helps I don't know. That is how I. It's kind of get past as idea that I'm not good enough to do something and just go out there and do it. Clearly shown over and over again that you very much are and you make a big point of encouraging other people, which is a great an amazing and one of the signs that you belong out there teaching the fact that you bring other people along you're not cutting off the latter behind you. You're extending ladder, you're extending your sharing. So to me. It's just another way. And you don't have to write a book. There's lots of other things you could do but radio book if you do it if you choose to do it. It's just another way of sharing what you know. In a way, that's like storable. Yeah. It's definitely something. I want to do it. It's it's something that I hope will definitely happen. But yeah. Someone those hurdles to get over Che's centrally over myself and do it. Well, if you ever want to talk about that. Or anything else? I hope we'll talk again, we're coming up on our hour. So this is been this hour to me has flown by I always love talking to you. And it always seems to be really fun and move really quickly.
