"mcmaster" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast

"Is best applied to policy but we also got into how he took inspiration from george costanza why he considers himself the funky est. Nsa history and how china talk episodes fit into his workout regimen fair. Podcast november thirtieth. Hr mcmaster on china. So we're gonna start off with a hardball question. Which seinfeld character. I do you think would make the best and worst national security adviser i kind of modeled myself little bit after george costanza. 'cause i feel like i did leave on a high note you know so i think i think maybe kramer 'cause you want somebody who's a little bit creative who thinks a little bit out of the box as well but you have to have a degree of stoicism. I'm trying to think who who else would stoic and company b. newman. You know maybe. Newman newman newman for the stoicism. Maybe kramer for the creativity. Maybe george as the example of leaving on a high note strategic narcissism. What is it and how does it imply to the way the. Us has related to asia. Jordan i think this is kind of the lodestone around our neck this tennessee to define the world only relation to us and then to assume therefore that what we decided to do or what we decided not to do will be decisive to achieving a favorable outcome this is problematic because it self referential because and it doesn't acknowledge the degree to which the other especially adversaries enemies rivals competitors have over the future course of events and therefore i think especially since the cold war. Our policies and strategies have been undercut by an under appreciation of the degree to which the other has say in the future course of events and and therefore we've been prone to optimism bias and confirmation bias and other cognitive traps and and we've developed strategies largely on what we the purveyor prefers rather than what the situation demands. Can you tie this with your sense. That america is a point of spiritual exhaustion. It seems particularly in regards to almost anything aside from standing up to china. Well i think this goes back to the end of the cold war and tell the story and battlegrounds about witnessing the end of it as a regiment patrolled the east german west german border and know there was reason for celebration right. I mean we were staring down. East german border guards one minute nineteen eighty-nine and the just a few hours earlier. There are tens and hundreds of thousands and then tens of thousands of east germans pouring across that border bearing bouquets of flowers and bottles of wine. There were hugs and tears of joy. We won the cold war and then we went to a hot war just about a year later almost exactly a year later and had a lopsided victory over the fourth largest army in the world during operation desert storm and so in the nineties. I think we bought into some assumptions. About this close cold war period. The turned out to be false. And first among these was that there was an arc of history that he guaranteed our privacy of free and open societies over closed authoritarian systems. And then secondly a corollary to that is great power. Competition was a relic of the past and stirred that that our technological military prowess as demonstrated in the gulf war would guarantee our security going forward and and ensure that if if oh had the temerity to challenge us that that war would be fast cheap and efficient jordan. I think if this was a setup. It was a setup for profound disappointments in strategic shocks in the two thousands. The mass murderer tax with nine eleven for Foremost among those but then also the unanticipated length and difficulty of the wars in iraq and afghanistan the financial crisis and. i think it was. Then in the two thousands that the emotional impetus behind our foreign policy shifted from optimism. Maybe touch a of hubris in the nineties to pessimism This rovan attitude of resignation in the two thousand so the turning around from that was something that you were personally apart of. So i'd like you to talk about how you personally as well as the government. At large in the early years of the trump administration came to the conclusion that china was priority number one. And you know to what extent that was the president as opposed to or in concert with stuff bubbling up from the agencies themselves right. But you know the those biggest adjustment. I think we made. Us foreign policy was the shift toward china up from this strategy of and these labels really are only limited neutrality but the strategy of cooperation engagement to a strategy of competition. And you went out. When i came into the into the west of the white house quite suddenly an unexpectedly walk through an office. That i thought was mcgeorge. Bundy's office. Because i had written a book about about decisions that led to american war in vietnam and one of the deficiencies that i identified from a historical perspective. Was that we that we didn't frame that problem of Of the other vietnam war and and we rushed into action before trying to fully understand what was at stake for us and what the nature of the challenge was associated with that war so we put into place very early as soon as we put into the national security decision making policy making process in place a new meeting is part of that process called a principal small group framing session and not to get into too much detail is basically. Let's understand the problem first before we rush to solutions and what we did in each of these sessions and the china session was the second of these. After after a north korea session is that we we tried to identify. What are the assumptions on. Which previous policy was based many of these jordan. Turn out to be implicit and therefore they go unchallenged. and then we would. Subject these these assumptions to scrutiny and then if invalidated come up with a new set of assumptions this is all part of trying to understand these challenges on their own terms. Trying to understand what you us. Vital interests were at stake and then to craft goals and objectives overall assessment so for china we identified the the you know the main assumption as as this assumption that china having been welcomed in to the international order would play by the rules yet been welcomed into the international order Would play by the rules in china. Prospered it with liberalize its economy and liberalize its form of governance of course by early two thousand seventeen that was demonstrably not the case President trump was already predisposed toward shifting our approach to china and at and of course he had made statements to that effect during a during the presidential campaign but this framing of our approach to china real. I think helped. Establish a new set of assumptions that i describe in in battlegrounds and and that was that party. The chinese communist party was driven mainly by ua combination of fear ambition Fear of losing control and so the party would act in a way that would allow it to extend and tighten its exclusive grip on power internally and to pursue the you know the the overall objective of national juvenile internationally and if china were to succeed in what was increasingly aggressive approach to exporting its authoritarian mercantilist model that the world would be less free less prosperous and less safe so we we identified the stakes as being very high And the need for a fundamental shift in our approach toward china as being long overdue. We're going to take a detour away from china before coming back to it. I mean one of the things that happens. Very rarely is presidents and American bureaucracies changing.

What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?

"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

Translucent Frog Optics Dial In Camo Color

"Ocean animals have a clever form of camouflage transparent, but being through as far less common on land and was a few reasons why that might be Jim Barnett is a postdoctoral research fellow at McMaster University in Ontario Canada differences between air and walters. Surrounding media means life interacts differently with a transparent organisms body tissues. Any Ocean light is always coming from above and the background is less variable, but in jungle. CANOPIES light is coming from all over the place and the background is far more variable. Enter a little critter called the glass frog. It's not actually transparent. It's translucent that means it's skin in some places is thin enough that you can actually see its internal or hard at work most of the time when you see photograph of these folks, they're taking onto quite controlled conditions with either strong lighting like powerful flash. Photograph underneath on a piece of glass, and it's really the the bellies which are transparent and these folks are pretty small and thin and quite delicate Sarah. If you have a powerful flash on your camera, you can tell just lost light through them and they look pretty transparent. Barnett says the frogs translucent skin is actually a novel camouflage strategy that no one's ever really studied. Until now we're thinks is happening is that light is traveling through the frog interacting with the pigmentation about a lot of it does pass through the frog and bounces off the background Some of that light will be absorbed by the background underneath Roque. This'll some reflected of that becker a come back through the frog. So if a glass frog is sitting on a break greenleaf. In the jungle canopy, the light passing through its thin skin and onto the leaf, make the frog appear Brenner and color matching more closely with the leaf. The jungle canopy is filled with leaves, but it's also filled with predators, birds, snakes, mammals, and even invertebrates in search of their next meal these animals acquaint. Visual Systems are pretty cute into finding differences luminance brightness between different patches. So the quite good at finding prey based on differences between the background on the animals brightness and by being translucent sees folks are able to have an adaptive camouflage. So regardless of whether the leaf is dark or bright if the glass frog is sitting on it, it will appear to change to more closely matches background the study by Barnett and calling is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. With around one hundred, fifty known species of glass frogs in the World Barnett says the next project is to find out if the franc's translucence may differ based on their individual habitats. One thing is certain. It'll be hard to see what they find.

Mexico Caves Reveal Ancient Ochre Mining

"Sometimes, discoveries seem so simple. You know basically we've found a bunch of holes in the ground that's Edward Reinhard he's an archaeologist and geologist at McMaster University in Ontario Canada, but you know ultimately very important holes in the ground reinhard on colleagues believe they've found some of the first clear evidence of mining activity in a system of caves in Kintana ru on the peninsula the fine dates back to between ten and twelve thousand years ago. These are some very early people that have come and migrated to the Americas via the during straight. But getting to what remains of these miners and the tools they laugh is a challenge like cave divers you got to be so careful you don't get lost. These caves systems in Mexico, which were once dry are now completely filled with water. Thanks to a warming climate and sea levels that rose over time winding passageways are narrow and dark, and the walls are made of unforgiving limestone porous and with sharp edges. Reinhard says the water that filled the caves has preserved everything. It's basically almost like you know somebody working at a factory, they turn the lights off and they went away and nobody ever came back when divers started telling reinhard about what they were seeing inside the cave. He decided to go for a dive himself. He found concentrations of charcoal meaning that the people who walked here thousands of years ago probably used fire to light their way and there are stone. Cairns which Reinhardt believes the people built as navigation markers. Also says lots of tools remain and they were made from the stalagmites that hung from the cave ceiling breaking off and then using use hammer. So you can see the percussion marks where they were banging up the you know breaking up the stone on the bottom. The discovery is in the journal Science advances. So what were these ancient people mining and prospecting for there is a little bit of sediment still on the wall of. The pit. So I grabbed a vial and my sampled island, grab some of the sediment and underwater the red light gets attenuated. So Look Kinda Brown I was thinking well, maybe it's ochre you know is thinking about that but it's like well, looks Kinda creepy of that's what it is but then I got got out of the cave into the sunlight and it was just like this spectacular bright bright red. So then I knew. What they were after ochre it's among the earliest known pigments employed by humans and it's got many uses for sunscreen to preserve animal skins and burials and ceremonies, and people still use it even today in artwork. It was you know it's a prominent in used Gio material if you will through time for your end and dates data usage for thousands of years prior to around the world.

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

The Big Story

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a

"Thank you so much for writing such an incredible book. I thought was really interesting. How the book was sent. Just you know it really does pass the test when it comes to two women talking to each other about things and so you also involved in the pen. International Women's Manifesto. Do you did you when you came to thinking about writing this book was. It was a thing where you're like. I want to tell women's stories in interesting ways or was it kind of just like I'm interested in these characters and I mean I've always written about women. It was actually my last book. The Green Road that to pretty central male characters is. It just never occurred me before. I think it was really good. Fun Rushing Man I. Oh Oh yeah. I can see why people might want to do this. But I more or less human beings amend their female. Because that's what I know bests I Yeah I've I've done a man to work on gender in publishing and reviewing and I keep obgyn BG on Alaskan. I'm quite an advocacy. Abbas my political life. It's not really my creative life. Yeah just swimming. Martin a book. That doesn't really figure just stuff that I need to put together. I find the figure of Del. She's an actress. Goes through from the forties rush up to the nineteen hundred s She's Big Irish figure. I actually thought was at least three things for me in terms of telling stories And how we tell stories and also in terms of Arlanda base with what that was I don't know why I put it from the point of view the daughter it seems to be the natural way to go is interested in glamour. And I think that glamour is kind of impart its idealization which children off their mothers very much but also the glamour contains little hint of loss. You know when something is glamorous. It's already nostalgic or it's already receding from you. That was a really good moment for a daughter to have a better mother so she has this big famous mother and of course. She's everything to to daughter as well. So there's those two things went together very well and I loved. It was told from the spectrum because it kind of the fact that she was completely unknowable. In some way and there was this privacy almost even in an intimate relationship. The daughter goes through to the first half of the book is almost like a memory and she tells you exactly where her mother was and what she did and all the rest. I like a lot of members. You're somehow there's a lot of color and detail an interest curiosity but some. I haven't got the key to the person or the key. In this case to want the person ends up doing because The mother the actress the star ends up shooting a a small town producer in the fish. I found it really interesting to the way. Describe the you played at Trinity Day. Do Waving into the book or research around. I wanted to raise it book for years. And I've been looking for good books for for for decades because I just loved the kind of hopefulness of the slight toll. Dryness of the high shambolic backstage is and how what the difference between backstage than going on under the lights is like and I did a digital native a small amount of acting when I was in my early twenties I'm at one stage. I had considered working out as a career but as unemployed as every other actor was and Oakland at the time which is pretty standard Unemployment rate of ninety five percents in the profession. But anyway I decided that it was a bit of a mugs game and I turned to rushing instead deafening fit higher percentage of my team. Maybe you're always employed advising earning anything but you and most people aren't but you're busy that makes sense so you're a professor of fiction. How does that affect the way you right now? Do you think it's changed because you'll teaching as well? Does she feed off students? Does it change the way you think about writing or is it kind of very separate fee? Yeah I teach creative writing a new C. D. I really enjoy it. I love the freshness of the page and the fact that it isn't finished yet the feeling that I am seeing seeing people's work shift with in a noble way when they bring us into an Ma and they start passing durant and they suddenly start seeing. What they're doing. There's all makes sense It's very steep learning curve for people. It's quite anxious anxiety provoking i. It's a big moment for them and I like being there Around US energy. I don't necessarily take anything to my own process as the Americans. You don't necessarily take take anything to to might to the desk from the classroom except Thou sense that this is what you're it's like. This is the air you breathe is high sentences are made where you put your common making all the difference. Hi can hinge a story or a book on on on high. Turn on a dime. I can build it slowly. I mean when you're in a book your inside it doesn't change on book eleven. You're inside you don't quite know what it is and I suppose there's a time when you start to look at. Yeah now I know now I know that is. That's glorious when that happens as we go to really good fun. Did you find the price of this book? I'm any different to the other. Books is kind of book. Very Different Orgy. Feel like you. You have a new well. Every book is the saying in us. I spend an enormous amount of time. Not Getting anywhere and slightly in despair rewriting and rewriting and rewriting. What feels like the wrong paragraph and that was on sometimes for our moms or is always goes on from him so I mean let's be frank and then I realized that have been growing the book that I've been solving other problems off the page. So there is a time for quite. There's a tipping point where you're actually. It's actually moving at takes about nuts about a year in for me and then another year in I get the gasses. I know where I know what the whole thing is going to be now. I'm a really foolish hopeful about. I'M A. I'm a great food at the desk because I don't know where I'm going. I start to book so it's up to mistake. Obviously somehow it works the must be some sense there but of an ending or where. It's going I'M I. I had the the episode that the the the mother choosing the producer in the foot and I must have had an more of motivation and history there as well but I just didn't know what was going along the way and have such an easy life if I could just make up my mind and say okay. This is a book in three parts and it takes place in three days and you know wakes up at five. Am and it ends at twelve midnight on Thursday. And here's what happens and then I just go type type type type but the problem. I think books that are too preplanned that there are. There are bits finished. There'd be dead on the page. You like something that's making itself up as it goes along. Yeah don't be seduced by parameters. Well no yeah I mean. People get all their ducks in a row. You've got a ROLODEX. There's no medicine today. Wouldn't ducks I like that. Tell me a little bit about how you think. Maybe people responding island to your writing as opposed to to anywhere else. Do you see a difference in. This book is so much you know a lot of set an island but it's also features. This character is to say that she was born in England and yes very much sees herself as Irish and being Irish is is almost a performance live aspects of her in some ways. Yes tell me about that. How did you feel about the perception of Irishness? Yeah well it was really interested in in this. Mongrel troy of the actors in the forties. There were actually came back from London. Dublin and the moines trying the countryside's To bringing Shakespeare to the small towns and and and then aren't the wonderful the way they show up at the stage when when Romeo kinks Julius is dead or whatever. I'm there's likely patronizing but they galvanized these small towns. People really remember the mirror very important they were real interesting and different to the texture normal Moore life which doses quite impoverished knitted during the wars. Anyway I love these guys It's been like Shakespeare while at the The they worked in India as well but the so they were kind of colonial remnants in a way but they weren't entirely English or Irish or anything. It was hard to identify. There was a guy called me home. Mclemore who has ended up finding Gate Piers Hilton Edwards and they were the only game in Ireland for for decades. They were a couple of never knew there. Were a couple in here so that was fine. So that's already really interesting. The meal mclemore. Who had apart from anything else Beautiful Beautiful Irish Gaelic. Irish was born in Winston and he made himself up. At what point did he change? I am he came to I. I'd have to look it up again. Became young to Ireland and decided he was going. He was called Mike Williams. I thank our Williams and he turned it into Macklemore and he spoke like that has an Irish theatre voice in which he did wonderful renditions and people didn't find him out. I guess we've got the Internet now. You will be able to so there. Was this gay couple and his sister married on your McMaster. Who's in my book? And they went around. I didn't I didn't. This is all history outside of the book and they went around the country so anything is possible. They might have been straight. You know that might be another kind of Mongol identity that they weren't they were. They were between borders between countries and between identities and they were actors. And that's what they were supposed to be.

"Then appears to have engaged in such behavior from ukraine to syria and now the uk russia continues to be an irresponsible force of instability in the world acting for acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the life of their citizens we agree that those responsible both those who committed the crime and those who ordered it must face appropriately serious consequences those who committed the crime and those who ordered it that was the last written statement put out by secretary of state rex tillerson and the the the following morning he was fired now as with hr mcmaster and his russia criticism in that afternoon speech right before the white house put out word last night that he was going to be fired like the situation with mcmaster this absolutely could be coincidence there could be no connection between these events at all it could just so happened that the president wants to fire these guys or as mulling over firing these guys at the same time that this russia crisis is happening with what appears to have been a russian state attack using nerve agent on a private citizen on british soil it could just be that this is all just coincidentally happening at the same time so these are the kinds of public remarks these national security officials would typically be making this time regardless of whether the president was in the process of firing them or not but now we have seen this same dynamic play out twice in a week we saw this play out in in very quick succession with the mcmaster news last night before that we saw it playing out in very quick succession with the tillerson firing on monday night into tuesday morning and because it's happened twice it may be worth looking at what's going on here.

"This morning the united states france germany and the united kingdom condemned the horri nerve agent attack on sergei and yulia scrip hall that took place in salisbury united kingdom on march fourth the statement made clear that we believe that russia was responsible for this attack if ran a russia do not stop enabling the regime's atrocities and it ear to un security council resolutions all nations most respond more forcibly than simply issuing strong statements it is time to impose serious political and economic consequences on moscow that was h mcmaster national security advisor making these strongest comments he has made against russia during his fulltime as national security advisor that's the last thing he did publicly yesterday before we got that spate of headlines last night night that he was about to be fired hr mcmaster made those remarks yesterday afternoon a veteran national security reporter spencer ackerman covered that speech and then rushed back to the daily beast to file his report on mcmasters comments you see the headline that he put on his report quote hr mcmaster gives the kremlin a double bird salute by which he means to metaphorical middle fingers so that was h out mcmasters afternoon yesterday and then last night there was this explosion of reporting that yeah he's going to be fired now one possibility here is that those two events are totally unrelated it's total coincidence they had nothing to do with each other another possibility is that mcmaster knew he was getting fired that we were in the ramp up to him being fired and knew it was on his way out and therefore he felt like this would be a good time to take some shots at russia's since they're getting rid of him anyway maybe that's possibility but another possibility here of course is that mcmaster made these strong anti russia remarks yesterday and then that somehow precipitated the president's desire to fire him or to at least start telling lots and lots of reporters that in fact he has decided to fire him and it's weird that we even have to consider that kind of a possibility but part of the reason we have to consider that possibility is that in the last few days we just went through something very similar with the secretary of state rex tillerson.
