I was talking to this girl I note who also, and she said to me that I just every time I am doing something like continuing to go forward in life a growing, having these relationships in. All these things happening for me. She said, you almost don't believe it because you didn't think you'd like make it this far in life or like everything that comes you're like Kay I'm still here and I'm doing this and like everything so good how how, why, and the get like confused in that because you can in some way shape or form can not a lot of people remember not a lot of people come in here with that kind of like. To be on guard. Why can I ever just be happy to I've got a great relationship kind of killing it with my career here but I still Kinda feel like like like like I don't WanNa get too happy because it could leave at any time here with young like I said your soul, your your soul, your essence or presents with being. So you know that you've surpass secure. It's your way of thinking in the jaded. Miss that happened this lifetime.

So she treats her kids like she like she nurtured herself and her kids the way she wished she was as a child. I love that yeah I was like Oh totally understand that I feel like that's something that I would that I would see in my having kids if I was to. I know I'm the psychic here but I want to ask you a question here when you think about your future or you think about where you're out here and I want you to think about this intuitively if you can hear.

"Time sometimes because again, I don't WanNa put and gloom your bit I don't know if it's abandonment issues are kind of wondering like again I don't get to coffey because it's can leave at any time With literally would ideal. I, it's I. Think it was just to do like I always I'm always talk about my parents divorce in a way where I'm like it was literally the healthiest divorce when it comes to divorces and they are still friends and they both speak highly of one another but it was I literally my dad. Just. kind of like wasn't as in love with my momma she needed to feel and so I always think the project that in relationships where I'm like. Like you'RE GONNA fall out of love with me. I knew it let me some and I, I was. The reason why the reason? Why must without so hard here is because I've seen in on a certain side of my family I've seen. That side of the family where the were the the women were extremely manipulative or they were very clingy or they were very codependent relationships go in self sabotaging in a good majority of the people outside of the family, their husbands or their their means resented them in some way and I will never forget this remember family member passing away in this was her husband said this he had said. Okay. So what's going to happen when they come and pick up the body everyone's GonNa leave and that's it. And I thought to myself that hit she was back in two thousand six. I said I never ever want in a relationship towards the person's just waiting for me to die right? She is. So it's like you can you you you're not that. That's not you all. Spheres and insecure you've learned from what your mother's done. You've learned from people you can. You're very good judge of character you categorize things in little buckets in your mind your people that are similar here. So you look back on things here and again you. You're you're too smart for that. You're so can let go here because the one thing with you let's just say I'm not saying this is going to happen here. So don't think I'm predicting this let's say it didn't work out you I don't want the. If you were my friend we were hanging out at here I would make sure that you did everything that you could. Because I wouldn't want Caitlin questioning it afterward. Oh content I could have done this or could have I done this or would if I did it no, let's turn over every stone. You're. So there's no question thing Caitlin move free. So again, this combination chip I think that he provides a certain amount of air for you and also a little bit of there's something very boyish. And something to work his energies very boyish I. Think I think it kind of lower your guard down a little bit your enjoy it. Yeah. Enjoy the laughter. Yeah I agree with that too. And do like right now is that something that you can sense his like spirits around other people that have passed? On this is about you as far as your mate your boyfriend? No. No. Just like in general right now like are there Are People who have passed around us like at all times some sometimes thirty minutes a spiritual enter that you carry with you silicon I don't know how to explain it the soul to essence of presence here..

No matter what what I'll just wait for it no, no, no, no no no I mean that's definitely not my mentality but. Am I gonNa win dancing with the. If you even if you don't win my love a win and other things. But again, that's not hokey. That is the truth you're you are ready again, my question to you was, how do you feel about what I said when it comes able to let go? Yeah, I'm learning. I'm definitely getting better at that like especially through my twentieth really bad in my thirties I'm starting to get better I'm GONNA cut. I feel like I'm starting to get better at that and I think just being aware of it for myself like knowing that I do that and and trying to you know work on that it's changed me. Yeah Because like I said I, just don't see if you were to ask me Okay Chris Peasants up in a pretty is negative going to happen to me ordered to have to worry about stuff I'm Gonna I'm GonNa give you the good. The good old regular advice you're of course, people are going to irritate you're GONNA get stuck in traffic you're but your guides I'm telling you right now again, I'm not saying everything's going to be peaches and cream, but I honestly feel like all the bad stuff behind you feel like you're going to as far as your materials success in your money. Hope. You're ready for that because I'm telling you right now I'm not I'm not saying this to kiss her but here you are not somebody that surround when it comes to that.

Other other opportunities coming to play as far as ideals and stuff you're not again, years are going to be really big for you. So I would really look at that and really take time again this is not this is not about again enjoying the fruits of your labor but it's more acknowledging here and again it's not giving yourself a big head coach and I don't want you worry about well, if I get too happy here I'm afraid it's going to be pulled out from underneath you know it's not you tell your you paid. how do you say this without sounding we are you paid your Karmic debt you and I both know that it's done I mean. That's the problem that I have to is is is again realizing were at your I've come so far here it but I don't recognize because I'm the one living my life your but if I stop and think about it, all these great things have come into play since I. True Profession, your I've done this. I've done this now doing this this thing with Caitlin here and have good time with it here stop and do that every now and just being the moment here because like I said, I don't want you. What I want, but I don't want ever ever to look back see I really wish I. would've would've I would've spent more time on that. You're or really would've lead into it. They're yeah.

"I always tell people here's the thing I I have no problem giving pass like readings or futuristic type readings I always start marines. I will tell you, I'm going to spend the first couple minutes going in and give you what giving you, what my guys are giving me to give directly because it's something that only you would know and that's personal to you in that within that, it's what's blocking you right now in the space and time let's be realistic here because you're you're very down to earth person how can we have a positive future or or appreciate what the future brings to us if we're not in that space right now? We're going to overlook it. We're not gonNA appreciate it for what it is. You're feeling dipping into the past life which I'm going to do this a little bit with you don't want WanNa spend on a here. This this which brings me to amy is that people will go back. They go to these past life regressions to get readings on what good is that do? How can we fix our pass like that? That's not who We are anymore what good is it your here in this time and space with new bodies, not new soles but new bodies in new experiences to go through it doesn't matter acknowledged it in move on your. So with unique when it comes to any I, feel like with you and in in a in the recent past life here, I think that you spend so much time with your family or people that that you took care of. that. Were that I feel like you act like you still have the same talent because when I think about you as a little girl, I think as being ahead of your time as a kid is something till where you're probably you, you probably were an old soul in this lifetime or people are Kinda like that. She's so smart for her age or she. So she perceptive stuff I think that bleeds in from the past like. You're into this light because in some way shape or form your your mission or your lesson in this lifetime here it's not that you can have friends of you can have family your, but this is all about Caitlin. This is all about her as an individual, her achievements, her accomplishments, what I bring to the table I, brought it to the table in my past lives but wasn't able to utilize because I was responsible for everybody else. You. Go ahead. Let that's great i. also always have this feeling that in a past life I'd I'd really young. That's why that's why. Again that's why in this lifetime here you look look at how you started off. You started off really fast in this lifetime everything happen to at a very young age. So go when when I read your when I read your picture, the first thing, my guides, a total was this person here needs to be present I'm not saying that you're always thinking about the pasture, but I think you're very, you're very practical, very logical here. In feelings consecutive you're mine comes first you get you start thinking about seven then you then you then you go to how do I feel or what am I getting here so right away again, it's mental with you. So in this lifetime here when they're telling me about you know taking it easy and this isn't so much admire the fruits of your labor or Likud worked so hard for it's making sure that Kaitlyn feels on the inside here. Is that makes sense like like lowering your defenses lowering your guard here. Let me tell you something. I. Don't Care What any other psychic tells you. I don't care I don't care if they come out here and they tell you. Oh, we'll Caitlyn the reason why you are.

And I started asking him like you know what kind of protection are they giving you? Do you have face masks? He said they're giving us masks and I said, what does the mass look? He said it's like the beard net, but it's a full faced one and so then that's as like that's not gonNA protect you. You're still breathing in air through those holes like that does nothing. For my this was the first red flag and then on April sixteenth the meat packing plant where he worked a place called Smithfield confirmed its first case of Covid nineteen. That's when. My Dad started to. Kind of get scared to get I is kind of like it's not it's not here yet. And so when we heard about those first cases. It was very like it's here. It's real.

Change in Dominican Republic as opposition wins presidency
"Let's go to the Dominican Republic now where the victory by the opposition part in this weekend's elections has marked the end of sixteen years of rule by the Dominican Liberation Party. The P. L. D.. The newly elected president Louis Shabina dare managed to capture fifty two point fifty three percent of the vote, well earlier I was joined on the line from the Dominican Republic's. Republic's capital not Sunday Domingo by bridget wooding, who's the director of the think tank, Obi m I, see a or center for immigration, observation and social, development in the Caribbean bridget started by giving us a bit of context and explaining just how significant the results are very significant, because we're talking about change after sixteen years of ruling party and we're talking. Talking about an almost exact reversal of what happened in the elections for years ago when the President Danilo Medina got in with sixty one percent of the vote against thirty four percent of our be now there, and as you mentioned now I've been there has with the fifty percent needed and Danilov menace stouffer. His candidate from the ruling party got only thirty four percent. percent or so of the vote, so if we're looking at something, which is which is very significant, all the way along President Medina had sought to transfer his popularity to his chosen candidate on solid casteel, but in fact council steel was probably the weakest candidates that he had because unsubtle casteel was involved with public works, which has been notorious for different corruption scandals. But then the President Danilo Medina thought that with Kobe nineteen. He would have things in his favor. There would be a kind of swath vote for the way. He was dating with things, but that was not to be because. Since January two, thousand, seventeen, this being the Green March movement against corruption, and the fact that disparities between rich and poor had been rolling, and there were a number of journalists who actually lost their jobs trying to denounce this, so this became a big issue, the government, totally of note, the evidence and the president. Medina also took further actions to control the judiciary, but what also happened was that the former president Leonel Fernandez split from the ruling party, and that divided what had been a pretty Monolithic party up over the last sixteen years, and he did it by suggesting that certain casteel the nominee President Medina had been put in by false means. But there was a thought that were things to go to a second round up. The ex-president learn finance might have gone in with with consol. But what was the most decisive thing that happened this year was that on the sixteen to February nineteen elections, there was a glitch and e-voting could not take place, and so, what happened then was that the elections were. Left right and center, but this was corruption. And especially, the millennials who had begun to take to the streets along with other you know in many Latin, American capitals so in recent months, really caught a bit between their teeth and the middle class, which had kept the ruling party in power for sixteen years, suddenly began to feel that they've been robbed up the wrong way. The things were things were unraveling now. The government you know is the country's largest employer, but even those that it was keeping in their pay when along a satisfied. Feeling change had to happen, and that was the ticket on which the new president has got in and posted to surprise then I mean it was clear that the tide was turning, but did you ever think that actually he would overturn the sixteen years of Monolithic rule I think all the more recent polls have shown that he's definitely in the lead. I think what was worrying. was that at the last minute that Kobe number? would be used as a cover to dissuade more middle class voters perhaps from going to vote, and also the usual tactics of paying people to vote or giving people handouts prior to elections this time it didn't work with the with the exception perhaps of the government in some of the poorest province near the border, but it didn't work the because people were determined the change and I think this is. Of what's happening in a number of Latin America where people do feel the need for change, and corruption is a big issue, and people feel that it should be tackled also covid nineteen demonstrated again the dispatch between rich and poor because those people who. Are Not documented migrants people have been nationalized. He had don't have access to government programs, and this doesn't look good in the face of the sustainable development goals. It doesn't look good in the face of the international community, so something was going to break I think, but nevertheless I think. People woke up. Fight surprised that it had happened so smoothly and things didn't go to a second round. This Sunday. Do you think that people would just then voting against the status quo, or was there something specific that abner was offering? What made his campaign so successful? I think he was really offering to clean things up, and so if you the bar next to my house today after elections happen, it was saying the whites have gone got in his Richmond from the cradle. They don't need to rob. So, there was the sense that. That These were people who have. had a different kind of agenda, and all walks of life seeing that. that there have been just too much of a monolithic hold on every aspect of society and under change was necessary, but I think the corruption thing was important, and then the fact that normally elections happen on the no glitches, but this glitch that happened in February with the elections and the feeling that there was something going on under. Probably the think was more likely with the incumbent party. I think those were the two decisive things that make people think. Yeah, we do need a change and finally bridget. What can we expect from his presidency? What will apart obviously from corruption be the main issues on the agenda? Well, obviously we have a big health crisis on our hands, and as you can see the Dominican probably is one of the worst countries in the insular. Caribbean and the election mobilization hasn't held so I think we're going to have to go back to the state of a state of emergency. The new governor will also be slightly tied in terms of how far it can go in more imaginative on policy, more imaginative domestic policy because it did do a deal in this S- i Brown with some of the more ultra nationalist sectors of society, and so they're going to have to reckon with that. I think trying to was cleaning up corruption, trying to create more jobs and trying to ensure the disparities between rich and poor are not sensu it'd such that in this pandemic. All can be served healthwise and in future crisis, people are not going to be discriminated one way or another. And that was bridget. Lots of background birdsong on the line from Santa Domingo.

Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert. Rising in the center of it alongside the Palace
U.S. plans massive coronavirus vaccine testing effort to meet year-end deadline
"Tastes have been on the hunt for something that could shut this virus down and give us our lives back. A vaccine. A few months ago, there was a lot of excitement. As the very first clinical trials for the coronavirus began, it was in time. The search for coronavirus vaccine has become one of the fastest moving in history. That scenes usually take years not months to produce. This is happening warp speed. Never before hundreds of scientists are over the world and focused on the same thing at the same time creating a vaccine for covid nineteen. And more and more vaccine candidates are entering the fray. Were at the point, where around a dozen clinical trials are on the go. Hundreds of people volunteered for jab in the arm to test old kinds of different vaccines. As part of this scientists are taking some be gambles. The vaccine were looking at is incredibly modern type vaccine. It's not the traditional way building a vaccine, so we're going as fast as humanly possible. Many of them are not traditionally vaccine companies. They are using novel ideas from oncology things. They've learned treating cancer. It's never been used in a vaccine before. And if one of these gambles payoff, it could be huge, we could get a vaccine soon. The US government says that the goal is to get a vaccine to Americans by January twenty twenty one. They're calling this nation warp speed. And if it could be done, this would be unprecedented. So could we really be celebrating twenty one with Champagne and shot in the arm to fight the coronavirus? And? What would it take to make that happen? That's Today on the show. Because when it comes to getting a vaccine, it feels like this is happening at warp speed, but then there's. Science. Scientist is when on Earth Are we getting? This vaccine is coming up to stop to the break. This episode of science versus is sponsored by Phillips Sonacare the electric toothbrush that combines decades of science and engineering to master the art of brushing with sixty two thousand brushstrokes minute you've got a month's worth of brushing in just two minutes for better checkups, guaranteed or your money back visit Phillips. Dot Com slash sonacare. This episode of science versus is brought to you by AFLAC. That lovable duct does more than just say. AFLAC access a safety net when the unexpected happens by helping with the expenses. That health insurance doesn't cover. Get to know them at half dot com. Welcome back. So back in January. We had from people like Anthony Fauci that we could get a vaccine in twelve to eighteen months. That could mean early next year. And in the land of vaccines, these would be record breaking. It often takes something like ten years for a vaccine to from the lab to the doctor's office. So can we really do it? Get Out of this pandemic by January, before Santa even catches these brands. Well to get them labs. All around the world s around experimenting with different kinds of vaccines. But they all have the same goal to train our immune system to recognize and killed this coronavirus. And to do that, many vaccine developers have homed in on one thing. Progress. And northwestern told us all about it. If you think about the picture that you've seen corona virus like everywhere, and it looks like a ball with little points coming out. Those points the spike. Spike protein you know it, I, know it. It's the most famous spikes in Spike Lee and the most famous protein since. College Eddie right. This spike is so important because it's a major thing that tells our body weight this virus. It doesn't belong here. That actually is what argue system fees most readily. It sees the spike. After our meeting system sees the spike. It lends to recognize quickly. Respond to it by creating things like antibodies to fight it, and then some of those antibodies hang around so that if the virus shows up, then the virus will just be cleared away by our immune system. So that the next time we see that disease, we don't get sick in the first place, so if you making Exane, how do you get your immune system to quickly recognized this spike? Well, one way is that scientists can take rhinovirus and then make less dangerous. Say They Kill the virus most comedy vaccines are made by growing up the virus. And inactivating that virus sometimes with the chemical, sometimes the heat, and then that is then injected. An otherwise scientists can do this version of the virus. That's too weak to make you sick. And this is how we make a lot of vaccines familiar with things like the measles and chickenpox and flu vaccines. It's tried and tested. We know it can work and some companies are going this way to try to make Alka, rhinovirus vaccine. But other groups at. This meat and potatoes vaccine method they using new attack more experimental ways of building vaccine. And these experimental methods getting a ton of attention and funding right now, because governments and big. Pharma hoping they'll deliver the goods pasta. So for they use instead of giving you a whole coronavirus, these vaccines, basically using genetic material from the coronavirus, and then they're plopping that into your body. And scientists have chosen a very particular piece of genetic material spike. It's the recipe for the spike, protein. And this can come in a couple of forms. One is called. Our body will see that as a normal M Arnie and just translate into a pro team. Wow, so this. If this vaccine works, it would encourage your body to make little corona virus proteins. Yes that's that's the idea. Wow, that seems so futuristic. As as is, that's really cool right, so you're getting the body degenerate that protein for you yet, so these spike proteins that your body has made will then be floating around and the idea. Is that your immune system? We'll see it. Make antibodies send Ta. You'll have immunity. And many of the vaccines in this race, delivering this genetic material to us in different ways, so some shopping Marin into a ball of fat, so that your cells will slip up while other groups trying to smuggle in that code using get this a totally different virus one. That weren't hurt you. Is it fantasy that they've taken a different virus? And then they're like like Halloween the dressing at all like the corona virus, yes. Say. So this all sounds a little bunk is mad. The question is will it really work that is. Will these vaccines protectiveness if we get exposed to the coronavirus? Because if they don't. Like on a useless. My boss is to stay if it's just dishwater that you're not gonNA get anywhere. This is Katie Stevenson. She's a doctor working on vaccine development at Harvard and she says that one of the key ways will know if a vaccine is working is if it makes you produce antibodies. And she's looking for not just any antibodies. But neutralizing antibodies, what what is a neutralizing antibodies? So a neutralizing antibody is an antibody that binds to virus and neutralizes it. This is the dream right? Yeah, exactly right inches binds to the virus and prevent it from entering a cell. So the body sees that and just thrown in the garbage to this is what Katie is going to be looking for. In the results of all these clinical trials, and if she doesn't see these neutralizing antibodies, shelby thinking well, that was kind of done. And Katie says I dealing see a lot of these. So! What's a lot? Well you measure milk leases. Okay so I've measure milk. And you can measure antibodies titus. So one study, which looked at people who had been infected with this virus, and then recovered found the antibody. Titus tended to be at least one hundred. And when Katie's colleague vaccinated monkeys with an experimental vaccine, they found that having similar antibody Tom of one hundred protected them from getting infected. So while we're still learning a lot, he all I have been kind of looking for one one hundred. Okay, that's it's nice, poetic, great one hundred yeah! We have a handful of results that companies have released from different clinical trials, but just one paper that's published in a peer review gentle. It was from a Chinese local company who injected more than one hundred people with one of those new fandango vaccines and it was back in March. They tested three different doses. And Katie says they didn't get. This antibody tighter. Like at the highest dose averaged around Bootie for you know I was a little bit disappointed, so a little bit reserved I'm happy that it elicited an immune response because that's not a given. Sometimes, it's just zero zero zero but I would've liked to see something closer to like one hundred another company. Medina injected forty five people back in March with the vaccine, and they said that eight people had good levels of neutralizing antibodies. But they didn't tell us about the opposite in the trial. When we asked dinner about this, we didn't hear back to Katie is holding out for more info. Yeah, I just wanted to see the rest because it is immune. A- promising I'd put promising right on there. But I do not know which one of these is GonNa work if any, and that that is the actual fact truth so I try not to stray from that, and there are other FAC truths to nail down him. Even if these vaccines do make you produce produces, antibodies will still have to make absolutely short that you'll protected from the corona virus. If you do get exposed, and then if you protected, we'll have to work out how long four so you might need. More than one shot of the vaccine say a booster shot in a or so.

Travel to Saudi Arabia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christianson. Let's talk about Saudi Arabia. I'd like to welcome to the show flow meter. Who's come to us from Munich Germany but come to talk to us about Saudi Arabia flow? Welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Happy to be here. Saudi Arabia is not a place that well actually. It's a place that a lot of people have gone on Hosh. It's one of the most popular travel destinations in the world but for people who are not Muslims. It is a relatively new destination very true yet. Open up its tourist visa in the end of September so everything is very new. There and for me was the interesting part of really yet. Go to a country where tourism really hasn't been a part of the history in the last year. I guess that answers the question of why you went to Saudi Arabia. Was there more to the story than just it opened up. The opportunity was available. I mean Saudi Arabia. There's so much so much to talk about. I mean first of all landscape. I think we always think about at least to me. It was okay. Saudi Arabia desert oil encampments. That's the first words that came to remind but the landscape boys. There is so much more to see. I mean the Sea of the mountains zero than history wise. I mean a lot of ancient kingdoms coming from there the history of Islam being from there but for me it was one of the biggest reasons why a went to Saudi. Arabia was the hospitality of the people. I heard such amazing things about that. I've been around in the Middle East and I wanted to experience it for myself and as soon as I heard. They opened up the doors for tourists. I said okay. I'm going to jump on that wagon and I want to see for myself to really see how it is. And what kind of an itinerary? Are you going to recommend for us when you look at the map? Saudi Arabia is a huge country. So I always say it's better to have more time than less. But if you have about eight to ten days that should give you a good idea overview over the country so I did it. I'd recommend always starting in Ria. That's the capital on the east side. And then making your way for the West stow after that a Lula which is a beautiful beautiful historic site than to Medina which is super interesting because Muslims go there as well now and then to Jeddah and then from Jeddah head back to Fly Back from Jeddah which options whatever works best for you excellent before we get into that in more detail one place. You didn't name and I WANNA talk about why you didn't name. It is a place that other people might be interested in going. And that's Mecca and there's a reason why you didn't name Mecca and we OUGHTA address the elephant in the room as it were so if he would want to go to Mecca. I'll give you the picture you'll drive on the road and then you see a big sign which says non Muslims go right and Muslims go straight celebrate as a non Muslim. You're not allowed to go to Mecca. And that of course has to be respected now of course if you are Muslim than that's entirely different and you in fact are encouraged or required depending on how one looks at that to make a trip to Mecca at least once in your life if you have the means to do so. So but we're not gonNA address Mecca in this particular episode. We're not going to address going on Hajj because most of the show can't do that so excellent you started us in Riyadh exactly so the beauty of Saudi Arabia is that everything is pretty new so I mean arriving day you arrive at a Super Bowl Airport. I first of all said okay. I'm GonNa take the metro into town so followed the metro signs only to find out that not. That's not billed yet. So that's how earlier wasn't the country so back out of the airport into Uber and into town. We think we always have this idea that Saudi Arabia is a very rich country but maybe a bit old school. That definitely didn't find that the case Uber which works fantastic they have all the amenities modern buildings amazing and paired with all the history that comes with it and there was amazing for me on firsthand arrived in the country. I get into Uber. You drive into town takes about forty five minutes because traffic is crazy and we start talking and suddenly he stops and he gets out of the car and he comes back into the car with a box of oranges. And I'm super perplexingly. Okay what would you know? He's giving me this box of oranges and I was like okay. Maybe we did the picked it up for his wife or his family and he's like no no no. This is for you and this was the first time really experienced hands on Saudi hospitality. Which is insane. I mean I've been to a lot of places but never ever did uber. Taxi driver gave me a present for just arriving in the country. And that would be a new one for me as well. It's really insane. And this was not a one time I arrived in is expensive. There's a lot of hotels but they are quite expensive when expensive sixty seventy USD. For I would say the the cheapest room.

"If there's ever a time when all of us need a little comfort it's now and you know what's giving me the most comfort this week. Andrea what's that? It's the realization that we live around a lot of amazingly kind generous people. So let's start off by sharing what's been happening in our communities were. We're watching neighbors step up and support each other in all sorts of ways. We have such a range of different kinds of things that people are willing to provide their neighbors In addition to money in housing and things like that things like delivery or child care or some people are artists in saved like they're willing to do online video chat sessions doing our. That's Jerry Medina. She's one of the founders of a local mutual aid group that's a grassroots network of people offering and requesting help so these groups are mostly organizing online but there are also posting flyers texting calling neighbors to let them know how they can get help and these mutual aid groups are popping up all over the country with people willing to buy groceries for each other to take care of each other's pets to entertain kids while parents are working. Some people have even open their homes to total strangers. Who need a place to stay? And we've heard a lot about that here in Boston because we've got so many college students and so many of them have had to leave their dorms and they've got nowhere to stay within not even our. I think that we saw this person. I'm staff often offer this to the student. That's why I think this is such a powerful way of practicing community. It's like Ben the nicest thing to observe during this entire time you know have seen local businesses stepping up to. It's a really trying time for anyone in the restaurant industry but Dmitri Murphy who owns Daddy Jonesboro nearby. Somerville is really stepping up. Even though they've had to close for the time being a couple of our staff are still working and they're doing so because they're delivering food to families in need. When I saw that we weren't going to be go bring kids to school. I was like wow restaurants have food and we are going to need to get it somewhere and these kids aren't going to school in Somerville. Maybe we can turn the need of the restaurants and all of our restaurants into a way to help the community and of course they're individuals who are just helping on their own like has saroj. She's a school principal living in Milton Massachusetts. So I do have a friend. Who is mean compromise? His bodily agreed to take an offer signed. GonNa do some shopping for her. Today cooks the meals and drop those off. Put up a post on her facebook page. She said she was willing to help anyone who needed food pickups or even cooking. She also said she was willing to take care of the of working parents. I think there is the capacity to love in Cairns showed kindness. I hope that there is more communication around folks that can check in with their neighbors. Like if you know that you have a neighbor who lives by themselves to knock on their door. Maybe wear masks leaving. No even just say you need something. Call me
Bruce McLaren Pt. III - Life after Death: Road to the P1
"When we last met up with Bruce the young. Qe had left his home country of New Zealand and made his home in England working for legendary carmaker John Cooper in his factory. Bruce's racing career abroad had a bit of a bumpy. Start but after two wins at the Medina of Formula One. Not because I would say the machias Monaco Silverstone Bruce was finding his confidence behind the wheel is Medina. Like Madina Right. That's the first time I've ever really called on to city in Western. Saudi Arabia Coleman Anyway. It's the one thousand nine hundred fifty eight German Grand Prix. At the Nurburgring Bruce Finishes Fifth Overall and first in the formula to class. He was hanging in with the formula. One cars thing about how Formula One cards. You have to stay ahead of to be fifth overall but still win. The form from the to us about twenty-one sounds about right I'm not gonNA contest that's pretty crazy. Just like bump up a class like yeah I mean that. Just shows the prowess over. Yeah Yeah So. After the fifty eight German Grand Prix Hayman's mechanic Colin set off for England a race in brands hatch. Which was the very next day which I thought was insane. What these guys are always driving to raise amazing. They may act like now Racing is very posh. I guess like these guys are treated as athletes like you mentioned in the last episode. There's just so much data on them. They're checking their pulse. And their heart rates you know they probably like decompress the dudes after race in like check all their muscles and stuff like back then. It was a pretty like rag tag almost like the circus is coming to town. Yeah and it's there was no thought for scheduling. Yeah I'm really it's like. Hey we have formula one race in Germany. How will we go to Britain the next day? And there's like there's a race on there I don't know I guess two races back to back. In a day holiday weekend we might as well take advantage. Might as well make a vacation out of. Let's get some Carl's junior on the way. So they managed to complete the three hundred eighty mile journey from the nurburgring to brands. Hatch overnight and cooking. Yeah Bruce Hop in the car and finished third at that race and by the way. He wasn't the only one who made it to that raise. It was like pretty much the entire field in Germany. It's like a huge caravan of big old haulers and like probably station wagons and stuff just ripping down the autumn. Get on the M one. You know that's a local reference to angle everyone in the Midwest right now is like yeah. Three hundred and eighty miles. That's your commute. Yeah how far was la to Albuquerque for high low? It was like eight hundred miles so not that impressive. Sixteen hours twenty five dollars. God that was yeah. That was yeah. It was tasty blames my heart attack on that show. He's like like we just shot season. Two of high low the Z's are awesome now But like she was like very concerned while. We're shooting it because the last season was just so hard on us. This one was way easier by last time we work in eighteen hour days for like a month in a row and I had a heart attack like two weeks after it was weird man like that show like gotten the rhythm of that like you said eighteen hour days it was like okay you wake up drives garage work all day and then come home sleep for a little bit and then just do that and then after like two weeks this is like just a weird kind of few mind state. I forgot to pay bills beard dream state and like it's not like we're just going and work in it was like the highest pressure. Just everything was going wrong so much stress constantly and just like I think all of us cried. I cried cried cried. I was angry writing my lyrics by Bruce's twenty first birthday. He had competed in eleven European races and he had finished every one of them. Bruce believes it was because of the shared meticulous nature between he and his mechanic Colin they always tried to be first to tech inspections. I wants to practice and always have the car looking in tiptop shape in his book. Bruce maintains that quote. Three things are important. Go a long way towards winning races. I think it's time for just a little. Reminder of what racing was like back then the reputation that open-wheel racing has today as of precision and other worldly engineering and safety. But that's not how the sport was perceived in the late fifties. Now let no. Let's just listen to how Bruce describes a race. In Avis Germany. To my mind it was ridiculous to have a race. On the Avis Sick. It proved nothing and it was dangerous consisting of two two and a half Moss straights at one end by a hairpin and the other very steeply banked corner and when I say steeply banked boy I mean. Steeply banked is around forty degrees. It sounds more like something you'd see in running man to full throttle than a sanctioned race. I just think about. That's the most ridiculous racetrack I've ever heard. Yes big old oval that's not even oval is like hairpins up. Both sides knows a big bank at one side maintains a Frickin slingshot around the moon apart. And then you have to go through a hairpin shoe like the shape of the Caribbean her family. Yeah yeah so like you could just maintain a two and a half miles so you can maintain just like top out speed for. I'm guessing like close to six miles. Said Yeah they are in the book he says I think the average speed for that race was like one hundred fifty miles hour. That's absurd you remember. This is in the late fifties. Cars didn't have frigging seatbelts back. Then I don't think no no. No he goes on to describe the racing. At the Avis Circuit Race itself was like a group of boys and dodging cars wheels. Touching noses entails bumping jostling for the lead. But we do of that one hundred fifty miles per hour. Dodging cars are just bumper cars. Doug Jim Jim can't get a loan. I'm going to get some Cotton Candy Army Kit. The Dodoma's ooh that sounds. I'm going to try and win stuff bare minimum. There's a part of the documentary where he describes these like really steep banks. And he's going so fast that like it's hard to keep his hands in the bottom of the steering wheel like it's point his hands. Yeah isn't that crazy? That is insane. Bruce's appreciations about Avis testified as a crash sent one of the competitors flying thirty feet in the air and ejecting. The driver. The car went thirty feet. Car was out. Yeah the rest of the pack was able to dodge the car and continued their Breakneck Chase. Down the stretch back. Then they didn't even have like What's it like lotion rounds? Yeah they never. Yellow flag doesn't sound like as long as our cars on the way that's like a man. Keep it going. Crashes like these were not uncommon in racing back then. Bruce's car through a connecting rod that race by the way and the ejected driver also survived his crash with a broken leg and four. Broken Vertebrae like our racecar driver back. Then I'd be like okay. I'm down to race. Thank God I blew karate. Yeah certainly marina okay. I'm not going to win but at least I'm not dying today. There does seem to be at least a little bit of that kind of feeling. Drought the book because he when he describes time that it's car broke breaks down. He's also he's very sad obviously but also he then like in. The same breath described some horrific crash. Where someone just gets thrown from their car. His good friend got killed in a race and then he just like race the next day like they didn't even think about it. It was just like yeah. Of course I'm GONNA race guys used to die all the time.
Johann Sebastian Bach 3: What's a Concerto?
"Kids. Concerto comes from two Italian words with sort of meanings first concerto means in agreement or together like the word concert. You go to a concert to hear people playing together but the Italian word contract. Tari has to do with struggling. And a concerto also has to do with one or more solo instruments doing friendly battle in concert with a larger group. Italian COMPOSER GIUSEPPE. Torelli gets most of the credit for developing the instrumental concerto. In the late sixteen hundreds an Italian who lived a bit later on Tonio Vivaldi wrote Zillions of Concerto will actually only five hundred or so. But it seems like Zillions Vivaldi's most famous set of concertos named for the four seasons the earliest concertos were written for violins. But you can have a concerto for any instrument. Here's one that you'll have nipple Makoma road for trumpet. One for cello by front-seat high one for Tuba by Refund Williams who in the late twentieth century Scottish composer James Macmillan wrote a concerto called vinnie Emmanuel for percussionist. Evelyn Glenn you can also have a concerto with more than one Solo Instrument Wolfgang Gone Medina's Mozart wrote this one for flute and Harp Dmitri Shostakovich wrote a wonderful concerto for piano and trumpet the end of the peace sense just like music for a silent movie. Let's because when he was young Shostakovich had a job playing piano for silent movies in box day composers also wrote something called the Concerto Grosso which does not mean. A concerto with slimy stuff. Losing out of it grow is Italian for great. Instead of just one or two soloists. A Concerto Grosso has a whole group of soloists. A smaller group pitted against a larger group. George Frederic Handel. Who lived at the same time as Bach wrote quite a few Concerto Grossi? That's the official plural of Concerto Grosso. a lot of Bach's Brandenburg concertos fall into the Concerto Grosso category in the Brandenburg Concerto. Number two the small group consists of Trumpet Flute Oboe Violin and the big group is made up of string instruments.

"medina" Discussed on The Poetry Magazine Podcast
"You know those paintings where the fingers are kind of in flight over the village you the structure is there. It's like they're escaping even though there is no escape so for me. That's kind of how this poem worked that It's not escape like you get away free and unharmed. I mean in the chagall paintings. Flying figures are kind of dark and distorted and the same is true here where the girl is in the end. She moves over this river right Outta cirque classical mythology college too you know. She moves over the river to get to the other place and she learns to forget and then she but in that process she's nothing but water and laying on the sky. It's sort of like in this border. Area you're not exactly free but you are transformed. Yeah that ending ending lines. She lay on the sky is so evocative and it's so open in a way to interpretation. The girl was only half of her mother. The girl was strong against tied. The girl learned to forget the girl was nothing but water. She lay on the sky. You know the idea that if she becomes nothing but water lays on the sky sky and away she becomes part of the elements should becomes something like you know. Lucy Gray in wordsworth for example rolled around interstate Arnold course but here. It's in the water and the sky but it seems as if there's also another interpretation to that this is survived all aw. She was strong against tied. We're told learning to forget is certainly not optimal but it seems as if maybe maybe there's a survival implied there and then there's something powerful in laying on the sky to something numis service is numerous but it's also impossible or like. Yeah you know if you move to a different place in tact so way to fear existence existence keeps you tethered to the land in here in order to make that move. You're almost like decision comfort of your humanity right and it's like you were talking about mythology. It's it's almost like I wonder if there's a mythology is going on here to where her there's a looking backward I don't know it's just it's that's one of the things I liked about it. It refused to go on to tell us more are about. She lay on the sky. We it's up to us. Well that's a real question. Like who is the observer or listener or reader of the poem. Yeah it's sort of moves itself along without us. I mean the alien nation that's inherent in the palm affects you as a reader you know you're you're sort of you feel like how can I change the outcome of the story. But it's not certain you know it's not it doesn't give you an easy answer right and what's also interesting to me. Is that technically. The poem isn't just one story. It's there's this part towards the beginning halfway through the first page where it says there was once a dock with a wooden boat wants a general one sister wants a mother who hid behind the general wants a machete wants a girl who swallowed the salt. So there's an it. I think this one's happens again. Later when you were talking about the sudden sodden humming So it feels like the poem is trying to start all of these stories you know sort of once upon a time once there was this thing and it's not clear whether all these things exist in the same time or not which sort of reminded me you know of the phrase. You can't stop up into the same river twice that history is sort of inexorable. It's like keeps moving forward. The river keeps moving forward ecologically but then the other half off of this poem is the Riverbank. Not just the river so does can you step on the same riverbank twice. I mean the problem is there's metaphorically like a border patrol happening here where there's a lot of deadly stuff you know that the riverbanks kill right. Yeah yeah that's you know one of the things that so terrific about what is that. It really does reflect no pun intended on our contemporary time while also looking backwards. Because yeah I I really felt. There was one version of past and then a more distant version of the past so the girl who tramped barefoot in a way is the repository in terms of memory of the other girl who had suffered this assault but clearly it seems as if the geography of it what you're talking about it's always going to be perilous. You know while things are in the state so that sense of trauma Emma continuing being re experienced by a series of girls seems faithful to what the poem is wanting us to think CAPAC Sarah Maria Medina from the American northwest.

"medina" Discussed on The Poetry Magazine Podcast
"The Taino the first indigenous people to encounter Christopher Columbus during his fourteen ninety two colonial invasion. It's true that the violent encounter of the Spanish voyages led to a genocide of Dino but the genocide did not lead to complete extinction. And so my father is one of many who identifies as dino and. He has pass that on to his children. Medina's Palm America is part of a larger work in progress seeking to expand the narrative of Taino extinction in the United States. As I began to understand more of the Thiong'o language and history I learned there are two words for Spirit One one is the Dad Spirit Oba and one is the living spirit. Go Isa so. I understand that there are cycles of trauma. MMA that we keep repeating in our families generation after generation the cycles of violence that my mother as a white woman has passed down to me me the cycles of violence that my father is a Puerto Rican man has passed down to me to everything that I carry within me and then also my own experiences in this lifetime so I think about the weight of that and then because I have a daughter myself how I can try to break those cycles goals. To begin a new Medina says poetry is integral to this process. I consider that active writing to be a form of Alchemy of transformation of taking a moment of trauma that pook dumb in the photograph. The pooped him in our memory. In the body an alchemist. So the energy we carry transforms. Here's Sara Maria Medina. Reading America. The river it was deep and wide while girls grew along the river banks wild. Strawberries grew among the wet grass. US A girl triumphed barefoot. Her tips wrote the tracks wept in the distance. She scavenged wild strawberries. The river water stung her mouth. The water turned her skin sky alone. The girl knelt to sift water. Do her fingers. There was once a dock with a wooden boat once. It's a general once a sister. Once a mother who hid behind the general once a machete once a girl who swallowed the salt she held the residents of chromatic harmony. The quiet of faded missed the lines of riverbank. Made everything still. The girl understood the rivers Undying blew the river of uncut. Red Flowers the river flooded and drowned. Once it's a sodden hummingbird once alone full. The girl was not allowed to speak Spanish. The girl wore a Garland of speech. She found she was only half of everything half of her mother. The general took her down river scavenging the wild strawberries it was spring. The strawberries were held below ice. It was winter. The general commanded her to lie down. The pain was a thud of a knife and boot blade deep in the whole of her hips. The girl left her body. Her Spirit rose she herself became the crumpled shape of a saturated saturated Bo. The river created a halo of sound. She still held a strawberry in her hand. She looked like a perfect crumpled bow. She was lying on the ground. She thought she she was lying on the sky. The quiet of the faded missed the lines of riverbank made everything kill Hill. The girl wanted to escape the undying blew. The girl was only half of her mother. The girl was strong against tied. The girl learned to forget. The girl was nothing but water later. She lay on the sky. Then I think what's really beautiful. In hearing this poem read aloud allowed in conjunction with seeing it on the page. Is that on the page. The lines in the poem are double spaced and they move farther and then closer again and then farther again again from the left margin which visually made me think of the river that the poem talks about but when I hear Sarah Maria Medina read the poem because she stops at the end of each line regardless of whether there's a period they're not it's sort of emphasizes that this might be half the story in the way that the girl is only half of her mother that it feels like there might be more to that line or something that's missing from the beginning of the next line. Even though visually on the page it looks they could all be one sentence. That really adds something. When you hear the audio of the poem to the the reading experience you can have by yourself because while the spacing might indicate that there are missing sections to this poem I think the idea of hearing it and pausing and really taking a long time to read these lines emphasizes emphasizes the sort of reflecting that happens visually and content wise in this poem? Yeah this poem is so lyric lyric in that way. It really struck me. Just how sound generated a lot of these descriptions. Are you know from say the hall and the Halo for example there moments in which you know you hear or you read a word and you have to to solve correct or only like once a sodden hummingbird I read I as once a sudden hummingbird which a sodden hummingbird is so much more interesting than a sudden hummingbird. So but it makes you really stop and reconsider. What you're worl- expectations are are even phrases like her tips? arrowed is almost like barefoot. You almost think it's going to turn into her lips rather than her tips so it does this really interesting correction of your set of oral expectations and it seems to me to connect it to this notion Russian of slowing down the lines and how they're moving across the page there's so much stillness and silence in the poem home that ends up to be very much a poem about violence and trauma and then finally perhaps a kind of recovery from that you know and it's a very powerful statement about America Being the title which doesn't appear in the body of the poem at all but it's a very mesmerizing mesmerizing. Experience of being quieted by the sounds and the lines. At least that was my experience and then you know really finding yourself herself with the moment with the general and the sexual assault that seems to be happening so I thought that was a really powerful balance to achieve in this poem. SN extraordinary intensity that we're all kind of struck by and trying to describe and for me part of this too is just kind of what the what the poem is about. which is this river as a dangerous but necessary kind of border place? It's deep and wide. They're wild girls growing alongside the river banks and wild strawberries among the wet grass and then when the poem moves from that kind of description to the point where the river water stung the girl's mouth you realize the immersion in this is deep and intense and kind of irreversible and yet at the same time breastroke by breastroke breastroke. It really does build this enormous kind of painting. Almost it is still I agree with you. The stillness of it to me is like the stillness or motion in a painting where it's Kinda fixed. There's you know there's there's nothing you can do about it but it doesn't mean that there's not movement being described because towards the end you know you have a transformation where the girl is lying on the ground. She thought she was lying on the sky but by the end of the poem. She's nothing but water and she says she lay on the sky and for me this kind of painting that I'm imagining from the poem. It's almost like a chagall painting.
