"medellin" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"Of travel with Rick. Steves. We're revisiting some of our favorite guests interviews in her autobiography. My Life on the Road Gloria Steinem explains how being a frequent traveler from a young age cultivated a more open way of viewing the world and one another and how it gave her the confidence to confront inequities in our society. Thank you for inviting me to be part. Of what is the first travel show I've been on and you know how did that happen? What could be more appropriate? Well, it's great and reading your book. It is clear. You are an enthusiast not just about travel about travel as a way to broaden our perspective and and help us engage in the world and you write about the definition of adventure and adventurous tell us about that. Adventurer we know as some the daring attractive occupation exploring adventure S. if you look in the dictionary find, it's someone who takes advantage of other people for money and physician. So even in the words, there's a problem. So the road really is masculine turf unless people speak up and and open it up to the other half of the world. Isn't it? Yes it it has been, which is ironic because from DNA studies, we understand that women have been more likely to travel than then but mainly because of cultures that were Patra local. So when traveled to marry into other cultures Otherwise, the road is viewed as dangerous for women often, and there are still places in the world especially in the Middle East where women are not allowed to leave their own homes, much looser countries without male permission or the company of a male. So it has been male turf I think in a literary sense to it's been melter. Jack Kerouac mystique must have been so interesting for you to. Back on over five decades of of hard work and lots of travel, you wrote that for the first decades, your longest stretch at home was eight days and my longest consecutive. Spach at home was eight days and that was a shock even to me. that. The road is the place you feel most at home. How can that be? Well, I had not planned to start this book with a chapter about my father, but once I sat down to write it it was the first thing I found coming up because as a child. I did grow up until the age of ten or so most of the time, a house trailer my father was a gypsy and his spirit. He had a little summer resort in southern Michigan. But when it got cold, he immediately put us all. You know my sister, my mother, the dog in me into a trailer and we started to win our way working. Our Way by selling antiques and jewelry, and so on along the way to Florida or California and warm weather so that meant that I actually live most of the time in my early Childhood in a house trailer I understand from your book. You know he'd leave home without enough money to get back home and he would just say, well, let's see what will happen. He always used to say if I don't know what will happen tomorrow, it could be wonderful. So he affirmatively didn't want to know what was going to happen. And that must have had a impact on because as a a young woman of twenty two, you head out for India. And I found it interesting glory that you dedicated the book to a British doctor who at considerable risk himself helped you out when you were on the road to India's a young woman. I. You know I was partly escaping getting married I. Have Been Engaged when I was a senior in. College. And so when I was working as a waitress in London waiting for a visa to get to India I realized that I was pregnant and I had all the notions of throwing myself downstairs or you know. Completely. Naive, notions, but fortunately, I found his name in A. In the phone book actually in the neighborhood where I was living and he turned out to be very wise and kind person who was willing to risk his livelihood. By signing paper for me to go and seek a an unfortunate legally, and then he took a promise out of you didn't he which I think is very powerful. He said as I say in the dedication knowing only that had broken engagement at home to seek an unknown faith he said you must promise me two things. I. You will not tell anyone my name second you will do what you want to do with your life. So I say instead occasion. Dear Dr. Sharp. I believe you who knew the law was unjust. Not Mind if I say this so long after your death. I've done the best I could with my life this focused for you I'm sure he he would be. He would endorse what you've done with your life, but it's almost A. That trip must've been like a springboard to a life of activism because you were heading for India how did India impact you and when you look back on it how did it make a difference in your work over all these decades? I would not want to say that I knew what I was doing and even after I was there for a year and loved it and stayed on for another year I still didn't understand how much it was changing me or how what I was learning there would be relevant. You know somehow I think if we just. Proceed. One step at a time doing what excites us in interest us. It begins to fit together like a puzzle and of course, they had just managed the first big peaceful revolution in gaining independence and Ghandi's philosophy was very much key to that and influencing the world. So it just took me a long time to to realize that what I was learning there about organizing the change came from the bottom up that the way you conducted yourself determined your ends the ends didn't justify. The means the means. Dictated the ends it took me a while to realize that this was true pretty much everywhere and certainly in in this country too. So you were there and sort of in the wake of all the exciting nonviolence and route changed from Gandhi Indian, you learned about talking circles how did that help you? Circles are. It's what are native Americans base government itself government on. It's actually what our Constitution is based on. I didn't know it at the time, but it starts with a group of people. Group not so big everyone can speak and everyone can listen. In which consensus and listening to each other as more important than time. We probably have been sitting around campfires, telling our stories for all the time that human.

"Let's open today's travel with Rick Steves travel writer, Dave Seminar. He took his whole family to many in Columbia which used to have a reputation as the headquarters for a dangerous drug cartel. Our interview was recorded just before the global lockdowns kicked in. Hey thanks for having me on the show wreck. So you went to Medigene I mean the image of Medina's like scariest a generation ago is one of the most dangerous cities on the planet. That's right. But but it certainly isn't any longer I mean these days the murder rate in Medellin is lower than New Orleans Saint Louis Chicago and several other cities as well. It's an amazing turnaround and Tourism. Is a booming part of the economy. I was just there. My son loves it so much. He bought a condo there and I was there for years this last year with him and we were standing on his balcony and and everybody was blown up fireworks and My son had a Colombian there with him and and we were talking about it. And when the Colombians see those fireworks, they remember in the days of Pablo Escobar. That's what they would explode when they made a deal in the United States with the with the drug trade, they're not making deals with the drug trade anymore with the Pablo Escobar outfit that's just celebrating. So they've gone from supplying America's cocaine habit to actually building a city. On live biting entrepreneurs that's true. They I Columbia is still does produce eighty percent of the cocaine I mean to be frank. However, look I went there with my ten and twelve year old sons and my wife and I would never take them to a place that I thought was too dangerous. So I really consulted with a lot of different people before. Going there however, my parents and several other people said Columbia, you're taking your sons to Columbia you nuts. But I did my research and I talked to enough people who had had great experiences there that I felt comfortable doing it and we spent two weeks traveling all around the country and I felt very safe. The whole time tell us about the public tour. It was interesting. You know my wife said Pablo Escobar, to are you sure that that's appropriate for our sons who are ten and twelve years? Old Side I called one of the tour companies that had good reviews on trip advisor and he said Oh yes. Our tour is good for children aged six and up said really okay. Well, let's do it. We thought maybe we can teach them. Okay. He's a bad guy. You know here's. The evils of drugs and teach them a little bit about why the drug violence in and I thought maybe they a lot of it might go over their head but I thought well, they'll learn something. Let's do it but you go through you goes through neighborhood community thirteen, which is now trendy it's filled with street art and is just a festival of good living not good living. It's still a poor area but a festival of happiness yeah. Community Thirteen is sort of an interesting area I've I've found it to be one of the more disappointing stops to be honest with you on the tour I. mean it doesn't really have much to do with Pablo Escobar though it was a neighborhood that was wracked by gang violence, and then in two thousand eleven, the government installed a series of escalators there the idea was. Allowing people to be able to move safely through the community get from their hilltop neighborhoods down to where jobs and transportation and things of that are. But when I was there in July about the experience maybe if you traveled at a different time of year, you might have an off more authentic experience but it was absolutely full of tourists which really shocked me because here is. Sort of an impoverished neighborhood that has all credit to them I think it's wonderful. They found a way to turn the violence of the neighborhood into a marketable commodity, but it was absolutely crawling with tourists and I sort of felt like, wow, I really don't like going to places that are too full of tourists. So for me, it fell a little bit flat to be. Quite honest. But maybe if I visited another time of year, I would have I would have liked more no I don't think so I mean I was there in the winter but to me, it was a former violence ridden gang ridden community that now is a kind of a tourist trap and it just like an amusement pier in San Francisco. Almost or something like that. And what was really fun was the street art I mean the street art was like it's like going through an art gallery and it's all this edgy colorful tropical street art and you've got it all together by escalators. I can imagine before those escalators came you know ten years ago you would have desperately poor people and You'd have the intimidation of the gangs and all of that and and the high murder rate and today there's there's not a hint of that and the escalators let people connect and I think you know the way Columbia has invested in its infrastructure has given poor barrios. The confidence and the feeling that this is progress and changes possible and and one thing great about going to Medine is you write these cable cars because the city is in a very mountainous area and the poorest communities are pushed way up the mountain sides. But these cable cars, they're just like cable cars at a ski resort they connect the people in the poor neighborhoods with the good jobs and the good shopping and the good entertainment down in the valley floor and writing these cable cars was just a kind of a celebration of community to me what was your experience on those cable cars? Well. I love the cable cars just like you know I took the cable cars up to the park RV, which is it's a long ride as interesting things that you take two different sets of cable cars. You can take one set of cable cars, which sort of goes through some of the rough hillside neighborhoods, and that one is actually fairly quite cheap to go through and actually when. You're on that first cable car. You're actually getting ordinary people who live in those neighborhoods coming on and off of your Gondola. But then to go on the second Gondola, which takes all the way up the mountain up to the park RV, which is just fantastic and I do recommend that that significantly more expensive so that that second cable you know Gondola is for tourists in its it. Would be too expensive for people who live in the humble neighborhoods. But as a traveler, it's worth it's worth it to

Whats Working Right Now with YouTube SEO

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about what is working right now with Youtube. Seo. So just F- I just reminded for everyone youtube is still the second largest search engine in the world. Again, it's owned by Google. So Neil, what is working right now 'cause with Youtube you've got what about seven hundred thousand subscribers right now. The biggest thing that I found that works with Youtube. Seo like everyone talks about the key words you need to put the keywords in your title you need have attractive thumbnails for CTR's, and that's all the stuff that everyone's doing. It's just like traditional Seo right you know this better than anyone else everyone can modify their Meta tags everyone can create content that's ten minutes long or everyone can write two, thousand, four blog posts but the big trick that I found that really boost your ranking see youtube opposite attritional Google. Seo which traditional Google, CIO, slow, and steady wins the race in Youtube, Seo whoever does really well in the first twenty, four hours of the video being released tends to win the race and you can get your rank is literally the day you pop up the video doesn't have to take months even for competitive terms, it literally be days. The real question is, how hard can you push the video in the first twenty four hours and what I mean by that is, can you do email blasts, push notification blasts and? FACEBOOK MESSENGER blasts, text blasts, anything. You can't get views in the first twenty, four hours. If you get a lot of traction in those views watched the video, they watch other videos on Youtube Bay comment because they liked the video will find is the video starts ranking really high. Yeah. If you think about it I, mean these social media tools are all created by human beings. Right. How do these algorithms work? If you think about Lincoln if I post something Lincoln or someone's share something with me, they're always sharing with. The bunch of people want a bunch of people to like it. They want a bunch of your comment. They want a ton of engagement initially, right? That's what these algorithms looking for. They're looking for the initial rush. So you're lucky enough you're fortunate enough to have audiences across the MLS. If you have push notifications to Neil's point earlier, that's good for you. Now here's the flipside tonight. Love you might be saying, well, what have we don't have an audience while I just spoke to a guy yesterday new you should definitely check. Out This podcast I think you would enjoy it. My spoke to a guy named George Gammon very successful entrepreneur was doing like twenty four million bucks a year in the retired bought of a bunch of real estate and now moved Medellin Colombia. Now in St Bart's but points this he does a really good job of teaching macroeconomics and Learning Economics in college all I did was I went to distinct called the ECON- tutor and he just gave the answers and we all copy the answers and we went into class and We all got a beep is hilarious. My point is I didn't understand much about economics, and then now I'm realizing the current climate, you have to have a really strong understanding of macroeconomic. So this guy went, he's youtube channel. This guy's audience at all from two hundred subscribers is at one, hundred, sixty, five, thousand subscribers now he did it all organically why is he so successful? It's because his level of content nobody's doing anything like that right now nobody's breaking down macroeconomic and making it super simple. It's always like three. Simple steps, right. That's what he does is topics are really good. It's not like he has amazing headlines All the time, and then I found out from yesterday he's like, yeah, I spent about twelve hours on each food. I'm not saying you need to spend twelve hours on each video but the level of your content if you can touch upon things that are hot and explained in a simple way, it becomes very easy to share I learned of him to Robert Q sake the guy that wrote rich Dad Poor Dad. and. Boom Robert Gates money channel boom thirty five thousand subscribers instantly, right. So point is if you don't have an audience, yes, you might have to slog it out a little bit what look this guy went from two hundred to one

Some dies, staying only certain kinds of tissue or certain parts of a cell, but not others. The die Medellin blue, for example, stains, nerve cells, but not other cells. So methylene blue highlights the nerve cells in a tissue specimen. There was what early called chemical. Affinity between the methylene blue and the nerve cells now for early.
