Was The Nashville Bomber A 'Domestic Terrorist?'

"Exact motive is still unknown in the Nashville bombing from Christmas Day. Some are questioning why the suspect has not been classified as a domestic terrorist. We get more from CBS is Amy Watson, investigators say when they assess an event for domestic terrorism. It has to be tied to an ideology. Investigators say they're still unsure of his beliefs. Metro Council member Bob Mendez tweeted the decision to blow up in our V in the middle of downtown was to make a point about something. Whatever it was, it fits the domestic terrorism definition of former lead. National security prosecutor says businesses and homeowners. May not have insurance to cover acts of terrorism and an act of terrorism or not. CBS's Eric Control telling us when the investigation wraps up people in Nashville, all ready to pitch in and help rebuild their beloved downtown area Community Resource Center has received calls and emails from people across the country. People who have had natural at parties and weddings here in music City wanting to help Nashville as much as we've just been knocked down, and every time we get back up on the community Resource center is also collecting things like a trash. Cans gloves because as soon as those investigators have done, don't work with public works and other organizations to get down there to clean up all that debris and officials suspect the man accused of detonating that bomb was more intent on causing destruction than actual fatalities.

Why Michael B. Jordan was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive

"Sexiest man alive. Two thousand twenty is another michael jordan and just an objectively correct choice for just off the bat. I have to say listen. I both went through stints where we were bills ascent. I currently am which meant that. We brought his guests in whenever he would have celebrity guests on his podcast. And i cannot remember a male guests that made as much of a flurry among the wringer women. When he came onto the lot as michael be there were people. I won't name names but jordan liggins was sitting outside. She was like casually working outside. One day i was like weird. We're choice people were stationed across the lot to see him when he came in. It was a bath. Y'all i can think of two instances where there's gonna be s podcast guests. I like made the rounds pass. Bills office just right. You know why. Advisory michael jordan was one of them. I actually was surprised. I'm shocked he has not been named as in the past. This suggests easy choice. Like it's easy in the best way like he is people sector the people's sexiest man. I cannot believe this hasn't happened yet. I agree i. This is my. I was surprised about this choice because it was just kind of seemed to obvious where he had he should have won it before. And i kinda thought if he hadn't done it before then like he just wasn't quite what they were looking for which is wrong and also i was like what is he done this year because usually when they pick these things. It's someone who has really been in the news who has had some huge project you know it was the rock. It was blake shelton when he was like the voice. You know it was john legend and it's usually like tied to someone who's just been in the news a ton and had a really big year so when it was michael jordan i was like what was he in this year. However twenty twenty three movies so through all that could be during his done with. Tsa in his profile is he's donated to charities. He has been at home as all the responsible celebrities have been doing and like sitting at home donated the charities and being hot. it's just like peak twenty twenty. So i apologize to michael jordan for thinking that it wouldn't be him because that's all you have to do is twenty twenty and that's great happy for him. Each year grows more and more embarrassing than blake. Shelton was named anyway. Okay so let's go to some of the people we thought we're to be named the sexiest man of twenty twenty. So gotta give a quick shot to our producer. Kinda you can jump in if you'd like but i say who thought it was going to be. Which is dr fauci or shawn. Mendez goes on. I just the spectrum of twenty twenty runs from dr fauci tucson mendez. I really thought. I would something dr fauci as you were. Yeah amanda the moment. He had a bigger year totally. I was thinking. Chris cuomo john king obviously big cnn. Gal i thought it was joey king for a second. I was like joey king. That'd be cool. Little switch up kissing booth three. I don't Also thought. Jason derulo oliver tiktok. I thought chance the rapper. Maybe patrick mahomes the athlete not to flex on my sports knowledge. I'm dan love you. Who was in shits creek. Big actress doctor and a lot of these people were in the issue so we actually had a lot of good guesses in terms of who would be included because like we said they have a lot of little sexy participation trophies to hand out My predictions for the cover. As you know. I'm just to online and sometimes i think that the people who are talked about online are the people that the rest of the world is also obsessed with. What's actually michael jordan's a peak internet boyfriend. So actually i do. I think i was on the right track. I thought it would be a chris evans and pine both had a shot. Because they obviously chris evans very politically active This year and then chris pine has wonder woman coming out and christmas. So i thought maybe he had a shot. Kiat was a long shot just because he would never agree to this. I don't think i think he's overdue. He won a long long time ago. Let's bring back. He was also included in the sexiest happily settled guy which was category so he did get a he got he got something in there and then i said robert pattinson who i don't know if you would be into this like seeing repents and twenty twenty people shoot just seems like a weird fit but maybe next year when he's batman. I thought i was like you know. Let's just give it to brad pitt. Again twenty twenty. It's kind of a throwaway year or so like just give it to him again. like church. sure he hasn't had it in like what. Ten years repeats list over time over the decades. Sure exactly. he's still

I think people have told us that we don't get enough is of. That on that violation from US and Sir I mean it's I felt bound writing. What we would sort of in one sense thing called as stereotype a black female stars like. I'm so often we see infection in films, etc.. black women portrayed a spot mothers as on as abusive as missionaries manipulative at central. On this, what done in revived very sorry that that's the case but that is the experience that I've had. As experienced the Jesse hot and so we need to look beyond this of the facts of this person is behaving not shooting at the reasons why the Hudson's Bay haven't been explicit about it. But you know I think that the inference is that but the welding which we even but is so slut. disdainful. Of the black female experience generally can cause an you know I'm not. Two months later but can cause. black women to. Is Thought Missile John Wall. Just sort of to behave in a way that is abusive than responsible. So I can't forgive my mother. I can't allow Jesse to forget his mother until she recognizes that. And that's something I. Feel that I've been privileged to recognize in tons of to give myself a wide education and to to to to regional to invest myself. Thus something. The fact that my mother has been able to do and indeed. Being a Hudson as-as allowed her to to forget about five and his. It's again, very, very easy for from my parents on Jess's parents the tunnel and say when you. Were raised and what they call the troops. a new site to reject Bob and live your life. That's your choice. It's the wrong choice. We investor with the privilege of knowing the truth, but you talked corner. and. So there's absolutely nothing that I can say to change their mind nothing. In doesn't matter how. Happy I am out in LAS has a slam. I still until I combat to Jehovah. I've still living against the principle that I've been privileged to have been raised it, and so it's just you know for once a battle freezes just folks for my mental health I'm. I just went sort of engage myself in on decision and so I didn't one Jessica throughout as I think that felt Ryan at today right at the end of the novel this but he again, that would have been the Hollywood ending a felt right. But he didn't take that journey back to his parents house way where that there's a kind of joyous on. Soothing. Baltic. Kind of reunion at the end of the novel. That is that.

"He Ends Up House of Nicholas Jong is the editor of of a character Kudo in the book and I think about you see a much. This is what this is the means grabbing in Jesse. Intensive. really honest conversations about his relationship to white men. But also the complexity of that you know there's a character who talks about. The rage bring. But then Jesse's on this. He says, yeah put in a how come I. Hope these things how can I can? I, hope my race and also hold my trach. And Today. That's been loving. Cat had from white men in my life sees it was a kind of. The something wonderful place I think arrives at. About going it's complex. It's nothing. Very interesting full, possibly studt Jesse showed. In up with the black. At the end that that would be sensitive ideation all. Some sort of assume that would be the Hollywood Hollywood resolution that Jesse or by a ideal resolution that Jesse's comes some this blackness way demonstrates thought is by entering into enough relationship with a black man really wanted to do that. But then I didn't know what else to do with the character of Erin once they've had, you know Jesse and earn this on long and some fire romantic engagement. which comes to a a united. Anything away particularly, but I comes to. Operate. On I just thought it was sob doesn't believe it light but so I sort of resolved it in the way that resulted but I think what Jesse Achieves as a person WHO's now in his Mid Thirties as a sense of belonging within a community that is about Austin literature and not necessarily about sexuality I think Jesse would find more automation within an exclusive quiz environment than he does within a mixed gender knicks. Sexual. Orientation Environment Wife. Actually is. CRAIGSLIST and invested in. That place in cultural history. Yas So whilst having. A much more acute sense of dismay at white supremacy and on. The domination of white asking culture that continues. Century whilst being very aware that most of than. His also much moral adequately mom. It's important to feel loved, and that's what Jesse realizes. I've been book I'M NOT SWAP NFL black woman character towels in at the end. But Motto With, its whether you feel loved on whether you come love and and again I thought is that is the thing you know we can all sort of read books and learn about innovation will do the what. In terms of letting about black history month about colonialism's powering solves as black people. But then day it doesn't matter what did Steve All partners as long as we filled out and I, think about Split Jesse vessels. Jessica Simpson and that's how he sort of resolves. This is pain. Is. Through always life based on. His racial and gender identity and Rita I will. I'll happily let you know that someone who is very felt very protective of worried for most of the book about Jesse I, didn't at the end. I thought he was in a really raving exactly the way that you describe really loving place and the complexity of loving place was saying it's close genders, cross rights, aid all kinds of people in the of somehow something that's real nice and so Yeah it's. It's definitely not Hollywood ending I mean got a couple more questions in one. One is one is about land is this is very much a book about family actually and there is a again what's give any spoilers but the Lovely timing in the books. To home to to help them in some sense in retarding back to the West, millions. On dozen away counterpoint these experiences of family kind of generous experience of he's created probably. But also how brutal the family that he came from was flow him from his experience and I wondered about that I felt like the character. Particularly who embodied this conduct USA groups Hannity. and I wonder about her mind spirits reading the book that will sense the I felt some of the generosity into the cartoons wasn't necessarily given all that sense of hope. So I wonder what? About that, well, at the end of. The ending. was supposed to be Jesse returning to his parents house to. Show back, the he's become despite. The way that they raised him but I just knew that it wasn't climbed well, and you know the something's beside I think for not automatically appeasing abusive people for coming to a place like I think Jessica comes to pace why he is happy comfortable confident and fails loved and so why would he? Go back and risk being rejected ago. I just didn't want him to do that I didn't go through as a writer. I didn't want spy about done. because. I. Felt the conclusion European missile. One thing that didn't want to do with Jesse is to make him so rich and successful and you know having done with this guy, he's still works in a restaurant ob. It's a nice good restaurant. But his he's comfortable like he has a tiny flop with his partner with no air-conditioning. That's kind of Sadiki halts almost like today in the summertime you know it's kind of it's not the sort of rags to riches story necessarily. but inside the puzzle he fails that he is is just someone who is successful because they've found loves and because they have found Papas because they all now's the thinking creates the and if shaken off the shackles of abyss kind of advice strict religious upbringing safer critical I'm finding and he. You know he wants to go home just penders maybe. Reconcile with them but then I think he probably thinks if they didn't want me before or if they didn't think house good enough's before. Why should they now? And I want people to sort of ID wants to legitimize decide to people need it's become rich and successful. In order to came that pirates approval or the cheaper of any.

You know being appointed head boy you know for me you know people criticize you'll not professionally unstitched because you're black we'll ask them had always. In a that's any sense. But then my parents sent me to a second juice school. The was failing miserably that had the west reputation fol expulsions, tinge practices. You know violence and lets you said violence against off and the wasp on missiles and the whole borough off will, which is already a very bright deprived area. Simply because I've forever Jehovah's starting the same time. So I had to hunker lots of of racism overt covert is juvenile. From, being top of the clause per from being head blouse, suddenly sort of seen as a black boy. Teenage. Black. Boy. and because my parents have both grown up. In similar situations as well as as second generation West Indian immigrants for them I feel now and I'm. They exhibited internalized racism and the way that they. Raised me so both my parents. So Black the adoptive father kyw white adoptive father cartoon member is an invention by me to expl-. Sort of in a Melissa of easily. Digestible way. For readers in terms of explaining how difficult it is as all black child out be raised in this country in this still majority white country not still very majority white wack and 'cause. How difficult it is for a child to be raised with a black and steered sue the trust himself as a black man. Especially one lifeproof subs the education system prioritizes and exclusive you white male idea of lice. You know or the on Niche Trust Achi level for English. Shakespeare Thomas Holiday. Jamie Prese needs Tennessee Williams Scott Fitzgerald. You know if the poetry was all shems heaney and coverage and once left and Byron Shelley not his all pure pure shaw debt. You know. So again, you just not set of empowered as lack child to to feel like. You have legitimate place in life, and so you ingratiate yourself to wireless white students in particular and Jesse Ulcer is oxygen was witness and all of those. In his congregation all white man. With bricklayers over the day run, the station fog will talk pension decorate. So that's still elders and so as far as he's concerned that the meteors between himself and God and Sir, he fills the need to to ingratiate himself. It feels the need to to what to become like them. What's become one? And I think as he grows older and realizes that that's impossible but never going to be a white. the a new weights sort of ingratiate himself is to become is to be sexually attracted to them to be involved with them sexually. and that sort of feeds back into the level of honesty and explicit sex scenes in Jesse's not a normal. And investor Komo's possum you know he's been through so many things he's done star unique intersection. and. We've not seen sets like thought before by we don't see in films on television young black men from backgrounds having sex with older white men. It's just not something that happened. Visual operators is necessary. As is necessary to sort of write. About what is let's be weights or in a restaurant we didn't see. Even. Sir It just sort of became very important to to to explore about in in detail. But again, like I said, what's this? this file answer. That will be something that I will always be fighting through like this idea, all black identity and how it is applied masculine identity and how it is so often dictated to by the poor pellets would say is the white supremacist imperatives to this Patriarchal Latins And I think. Is, interesting by Jesse ends up on that because it is it's really uncomfortable following. Because you can see what's happening and And black people who have grown up in this country on some level of being complicit in that because for all the reasons that you say we've had choice but to be complicit in that and you, you'll very honest in the presentation of that but it's quite interesting why he ends up when he goes to Somerset I, don't want to give way two minutes spoilers..

"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right. So what was the first thing you did once you in a j decided that you wanted to start a production company content content is King whether it's you getting the rights to an article or writing it yourself off. Of or putting together a pitch for an existing IP like a j did with crazy as my superpower IP is everything and if you can have original Ip, that's the most important thing. So I really think putting pen-to-paper is the first step whether it's an article a book a script. I mean a g and I both wrote Our Own scripts and then with my show I was looking for a showrunner to help me write this pilot for a family Latino comedy that I want to write. I just ended writing it myself life. That's why we call the scrappy heart cuz we when we got the job for glow we didn't even know how to write a comic book. We literally YouTube how to write a comic book and like DIY like we're total DIY.

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens.

If you looked at the race I mean he looked like he had it but. I also think in a I agree with you. I think the travelers this Dalton just enough. You know especially for horse who had been running every two months a year, and now he has to come back and run another mile and a quarter race for weeks later. Sitting. Right behind. The fastest pace you know he's he's he's encountered. obviously going amount of quarter I just think it caught up to him in the final three sixteenths you have to remember by the way he tracked the forty six three half in the Holy Bowl, attract a forty, six, flat or half in the Belmont. But then it goes amount of quarter in the travers and they go forty, eight and one. And and and one eleven four as opposed to one nine, four in the Belmont. And now Comes back again and now he's gotTa go back to Tracking A FORTY-SIX CHANGE HAS So the goal for forty, eight, one half and forty, six, one half. That's why think the travelers dulls in just enough and it reminded me of easy goer when the Jacksonville Gold Cup was a mile and a half and he went from like forty nine in change. and. Then he comes back in the Breeders Cup classic drop back to a mile and a quarter. And, they go forty, six in chains and he's like.

Character was forced to Mr Derby and Max play hasn't done much the remember. This was the first time what is tried to win the Derby coming off a mile and a quarter race and no one really knew what to expect in that regard. And I also mentioned the horses tendency to drift out and caucus heads. And if you watch the head on, he's trying to get out the entire length of the stretch.

As If Things Werent Bad Enough, Snakes Still Slithering Around Out There

"Kobe nineteen police brutality the twenty twenty presidential election. We're living through turbulent times here in the US characterized by chaos violence and widespread uncertainty, and now as if things weren't bad enough experts, today have confirmed that snakes are still slithering around out there will be ours Marcy Hammond joins us now with more Marcie please tell us there's been some kind of mistake. Well, I hate to say it Leslie but this is true on top of everything we're dealing with right now snakes are in. Fact Alive and kicking Dr Stanley Mendez a biologist from Stanford University shared the terrible news at a press conference earlier today take a listen team of our top researchers has discovered that snakes still exist these legless creeps continue to sling through gardens, lurk under rocks and drag their lousy bodies across American soil. At first we thought perhaps they were just a part of a garden hose or a really big worm but unfortunately, they are definitely still snakes. No Man are they shirt because a buddy? Of Mine killed one a few years ago. That was living under a shed that didn't take care of the problem for good I'm afraid not. It looks like snakes are pretty much here to stay. It's like this nation just can't catch a break. You're telling me now snakes certainly aren't the most pressing issue right now what with unemployment skyrocketing ice on violence the OPIOID epidemic change products that promise to restore your hairline, but just make your scalp single but remembering that snakes out there. To watching waiting, it just doesn't help at all exactly a- pandemic is one thing but a pandemic and snakes. It's all just too much and with virtually no legislation moving forward in the House or Senate. Many Americans are feeling justice helpless on the issue here single mother Amanda. Schumacher who represents one of millions struggling to cope every day I, wake up and wonder how I'm going to feed my children how I'm going to afford it if I get sick and are there any snakes outside? Even, worse, what if there are snakes inside? Then what am I going to have to quit my job and fight off AACSB fulltime? That's heartbreaking Marseille Ernie precautions we can take to avoid snakes like say standing on a chair in the center of the kitchen authorities are currently advising that anyone who sees a snake should be fully prepared to point and yell snake.

Why Is Plankton Our Tiniest Unsung Hero?

"One of Earth's unsung heroes is also among its tiniest plankton. A single celled algae. It's barely visible to the eye. But it contributes to some of the world's most important resources it's essential to the food chain. It's a main supplier of oxygen and it's the fuel that keeps our cars running and our homes heated these organisms. No bigger than a human hair float. The sunny upper parts of the Ocean. The two main types of plankton phytoplankton and zooplankton support one another phytoplankton and organism so small. The millions can fit in one drop of water produces its own energy through photosynthesis accounts for nearly half of all photosynthesis on the planet zooplankton which are tiny animals in. Crustaceans like Copa Pods. Along with other small fish and marine creatures eat phytoplankton. Then become food for bigger fish and so on up the food chain from seals dolphins virtually every creature in the Ocean. Each either plankton or an organism. That depends on plancton in a David versus Goliath. Battle filter feeding baleen whales like the humpback rely on tiny organisms. Such as plankton and Krill. A filter these whales take huge gulfs of water than use their tongues to push out liquid. So foods like Krill. Plankton remain right. Whales also swim up and mouthed through plankton filled waters. They trapped the plankton and third tongue. That pushes the organisms down their throat but plankton role in the food doesn't stop in the ocean polar bears and seabirds rely on Plankton. Fueled meals like seals and fish. Even humans. Count on fish and therefore plankton to survive Americans loan eat around fifteen and a half pounds or about seven kilos of fish and shellfish per person per year. That's a whole lot of plankton. Plankton itself is making. Its way toward dinner tables. It's not common in restaurants yet. But on Angelina and Nuno Mendez. Both shafts of Michelin starred restaurants in Britain added Plankton to a special event menu in two thousand thirteen. This included delicacies. Like a plankton cocktail and plankton risotto. Leon told the UK newspaper Metro. It's velvety dry. Before mixing it with liquid silky ones mixed oily an elegant pungent on the nose yet subtle and leaves a long finish in the mouth while it's still wearing restaurants. Plankton is slowly catching on. According to fine. Dining lovers plankton producers Spanish agriculture company Phytoplankton Marino are growing microalgae for human consumption and one chef even tried his hand at Phytoplankton bread. Plantains earthly contributions go beyond the food chain. Marine plants like FIDO PLANKTON KELP and the plankton. Pretty seventy percent of Earth's oxygen in fact pro chloro- caucus type of phytoplankton produces the oxygen for one out of every five breaths a human takes and IDA plankton superpowers. Don't stop there. Not ONLY DO THEY HELP. Produce Oxygen through photosynthesis phytoplankton take carbon from the atmosphere during the process of living and store it in the ocean. They die which ultimately helps curb climate. Change this is similar to the process. Trees used to store carbon in leaves since photosynthesis consumes carbon dioxide. The carbon is basically stored in each plankton. A one group of scientists found that FIDO plankton incorporate up to forty five to fifty billion tons of inorganic carbon into their cells and that petroleum. We used to fuel our cars. It's made reprocess. The dates back to ancient seas and also involves that tiny superhero of an organism plankton when plankton die they sink to the bottom of the oceans. Here debris settles on top of them and chemical reactions transform the materials into waxy kerogen and Bittermann a black tar. That's one of the main ingredients of petroleum the carriage and also undergoes further changes as it heats and it becomes what's known as crude oil or if temperatures are even hotter natural gas plankton may be essential but the small organism is also a little bit trixie scientists too long struggle to accurately predict fido plank to numbers and growth rates. But that changed in two thousand five thanks to Nasr's satellite observations and thus reported that scientists can figure out phytoplankton numbers based on how green water is when phytoplankton get stressed by cold water. They become less green phytoplankton. Rich waters become greener as conditions and growth rates improve. Oh and by night. Plankton filled water conglo through the organisms bioluminescence electric blue green red or orange researchers estimate phytoplankton makes one percent of all of Earth's biomass. That's the total mass of organisms. But that number is dwindling study published in the journal Nature in July of twenty ten showed that gradually warming ocean waters have destroyed some forty percent of earth's phytoplankton since nineteen fifty whether we know it or not all. Humans rely on this micro algae. That's why a forty percent decrease or more is worrisome.

"mendez" Discussed on Absurdity with Ryan Becker

"Welcome back to absurdity and today I am I'm thrilled because this is something that I would have never to lead you lead you out of it like justifiably so I I don't get mad at people for wrestling with questions like that and I remember sure I guess it was through facebook that I realized that you were kind of out of the faith I don't like we didn't talk a lot in high school I'm trying to think of how we've all I figured out how figured out you know we were in separate camps Raleigh facebook that I feel like it was just random comment strings and you know probably me being Incendiary without the you know the adult concept of of keeping it to myself did you have the militant atheist phase oh absolutely would you say it's a phase would you say that that's like a I think so what's your because that's a Christian term like what is your what is your opinion of that so militant atheism the term I wouldn't say it's only a Christian term I'd say that a lot of the what you would call the new atheists sorta like the you know Dawkins Hitchens camp of the like the late two thousands or the mid to late two thousands might may even embrace that and might even go as far there's to say that they're anti-fascists rather than atheists to say that it's you know it's it's a good thing that it's not true you know and sort of revel in the fact that they're that they're militant because they believe that what they're doing is is is a good thing to to rebel against it yeah to rebel against it but so I yeah the way the way that I've always understood militant atheism apart from new atheism was this kind of like the I'm free of this and I'm passionate that three of it and now I want to I mean that's the thing that has someone converts in it converts the same deal I want to tell others of this news that I have I want others to see through whatever for I saw through and no and and I- mad that I was either lied to or you know whatever about these things and so I want to attack the very system that now has caused me so much harm mm or so much you know maybe have waste wasted a lot of my life for so I think there's there's whenever someone's angry I start to listen I start to think about what why they've you know why there might be angry and yeah if you feel like you've been lied to for eighteen years of your life angry yeah and it shows you that the zeal is restricted to any one denomination or even religion itself correct and it's just a matter of personal philosophy but I that that feeling was very familiar to me at the time yeah and I think if somebody had called me militant atheist I probably wouldn't have been offended no I I got it yeah and I remember with my friend Jas oh you knows well in Jason's been on absurd I think back in the episodes like in the twenties it's weird this is what I talk about like the twenties thirties numbers not the nineteen hundreds but he came out and talked about his faith journey as well and yeah we went back and forth a ton oh I remember that one and it just with several people that we grew up with two as you know I I watched really the majority of people walk away from faith for whatever reason they decided to so during those during a lot of those incendiary conversations we would have you know early on this question for you I don't think I asked Jason what was your opinion of me given that we weren't close like we've never been close I would actually closer now that we've were no then so what was your opinion and I'm not looking for a combat like I'm not fishing here if there was did you think I was stupid did you think I was like you know where where were you I thought you were just the coolest guy that I had ever it was it was okay so while I will say this while at the time I couldn't identify with with a couple of the things that you're going through in your faith journey because I was going completely the opposite way in terms of the fact that you you decided to stay with it and at the time I fell away from it you know while I couldn't identify with some of those strains of thought I also appreciated your sincerity I appreciated the fact that you were asking yourself serious questions that I felt like a lot of our I don't know if I should say contemporaries a lot of a lot of other a lot of our peers that's a good word a lot of our peers weren't addressing in in in that serious or introspective away and I always appreciated that and I think that even when I wasn't atheist I always I always liked your candor her and your ability to question your own beliefs and and find a way to to live them out as as sincerely as possible and so while we didn't we weren't close as you say back then I always felt like identified with you on that level so I appreciate it goes back to you being cool guy it does I that and that is good to know I think one of the things that we were always going to when it comes to proselytizing or even speaking with friends leaving the faith is no you're you're always going to have to try and get them back in or you have to try and you know you have to talk to him about this and fight them on I did that with Jase for example D converted Seventh Grade Oh we attack him all the time for it like Jeez don't you Pascal Wager all the time we didn't but rather believe in God did not lose everything occur yeah we used to take them all the time it's a wonder we're still friends amount and but you know I learned vic quickly like in none of that matters because even if I could prove it that doesn't mean anything like if I can prove to you that God exists Back then I used to say what was the point of him asking us to have faith but beyond that just believing he exists is not enough of a reason to like for people to just start following him absolutely even the devil knows that God exists knowing something doesn't mean he's like knowledge if you don't have an experience with anything then it doesn't matter so for me it was this idea with a lot of friends of just like yeah I'm just going to try and be who I am and try to be as respectful as I can be and and try and leave the door open so that if they ever do WanNa talk at least they feel like doc there's someone they can talk to there's someone they can go back to that's what I've always tried to do really cool that strategy seems to not work necessarily but paid off and say yeah you know you didn't come back to me when you've had questions necessarily but as journey at under journey back into faith you felt comfortable at least talking to me to the point that you're sitting in front of me on a podcast cook so I'll take a I'll take score one for the for the for the passive evangelist into checkmate checkmate wait who do I check mate here that's a Good Point Checkmate Checkmate traditional evangelism. I don't I'm not I don't know checkmate here just doesn't work in this format I'd all right well that's it we're done wrap it up no no so that's that's okay fair fair point and and I would say the same to you there's a lot of people that I am on facebook when I used to be in arguments all the time is a lot of people that did not act with sort of respect or decency and I had to stop responding to people like that but you always someone that I felt like I could interact with or you know at least I could joke enough with to be a little bit self deprecating with and you wouldn't take it as like shooting myself in the foot or I you know I can make like made atheist joke to you would laugh correct because you knew you knew where you knew I was being sincere are you sincere in my own personal faith enough to know that guy wasn't didn't hate anyone or anything like that yeah so it was cool to be able to make like really great jokes with you that were off color and still we could make fun of ourselves oh I've always had a ton of respect for you to be honest I was always slightly afraid of you as well still kind of 'em in that they're so that you'll either asked me a question or challenge something and I will not know what to do with it well let me put it this way I am way behind you on that on that mark in the wants of of my faith thirty I'm way behind you well I wouldn't I would say that your faith is is your journey is different because I bet you their stuff in the Bible that you will both quote no and be able to reference all three of those things with the same thing but being able to reference better than I can I would almost say that there's a lot of people that on their deacon version journey or D. constructive journey they they learned the Bible better than most Christians do period and so there's a lot that you probably could school me on Biblical Nautilus because I've always been terrible memorizing the Bible and like I always hated someone let's the pastor answer this question about the Bible whose name that I don't know who that is not always I've always been a big principle guy not a big like I need to know and memorize everywhere sure I've wanted to know the principles that guide things and I've always been able to reference like and where things are but not specific verse references for them or otherwise chronology more so than the actual chapter vers like Oh yeah I know that something in around Matthew Twenty five says this can go there and find it but I couldn't tell you matthew twenty five verse this says this I think very few people could honestly while in when I remembered that diversification came away later in Christian history feel justified in my inability to do so yeah of course I mean some of the words you APP spaces between them if you look at some of those old like some of those manuscripts yes so how long did you spend outside of how long would you say you spent outside of faith okay so I'd say my my Christian sanity the Christianity of my youth devolved into sort of a weird deism.

"Expected in a million years and yet at the same time it's something that when when the opportunity came up I was somehow not surprised by it either so I'm on a trip right now and I'm coming back from Charlotte North Carolina and then stopped in Asheville where I found out that a friend of mine that I grew up with well I would say grow alongside so to speak as a couple of years older the makeup but the you know found out he was in Asheville or in the Asheville area and so we decided to meet up and we've been talking a little bit more in the last few weeks and so it's been cool to reconnect in and catch up we just grab coffee and now we're sitting down to so Matt Mendez is joining us today Matt thanks for coming on Man I'm glad to be here yeah I was shocked when I found out that you've listened to the podcast and that you uh-huh and that it was something that you even cared about so it's been it's it's always cool to connect with a friend who listens because I feel like the the whether it's critiques or the feedback that I get just in general tends to be of higher value when the person when I know that the person giving it to me someone who cares about me so but Matt why don't you go ahead and just tell us a bit about yourself you know your background in faith and everywhere in life all of it whatever you want to tell all right so yeah as he says my name's Matt men does I grew up in Apopka Florida in an adventist family I attended a force like Education Center kindergarten through eighth grade and NFL a from nine hundred to twelfth grade and I I grew up in a fairly conservative administer household With a very strong faith background I would say my my grandfather was actually an minister in Cuba and his wife came from a very strong admin family and so I always had that in my background and my my father while being what you'd call the pastor's kid was very close to to the faith that he grew up in and so I had that very strong underpinning in my youth so fast forward to the present day worked in software for a company called Veritas I've been working there for four years I it SORTA I started as a hobby but I've been doing doing it professionally for about I'd say about ten years now and it's been interesting but in of my faith background I grew up I was in F- La Freshman Year. I think when I first started to ask serious questions that had never Emma from before so I'm just realizing this now if you have a grandfather that was a minister in Cuba grandfather's probably knew each other because my grandfather was a minister in Cuba really who eventually came over to the United States and actually planted was a part of the team that planted the four city church Oh so I have that that in my blood so that means that our families actually it may be worth conversation with I'm GONNA ask my mom when I when I am talking to her next to find out curious now yeah I can't imagine the the adventist community in Cuba was that large back then so I'm sure they knew each other encountered each other my grandfather was a minister in Havana and ended up moving to Puerto Rico and ministry in Costa Rica prior to moving to America and He was a minister in a Spanish church in in the Bronx New York City for for quite a while but he I'd say before he left Cuba he'd been a minister for ten fifteen years then if there's any overlap like my family left I think in the fifty eight nine exactly right before Castro took our so yeah that was wow okay cool so this small world man there are people that I've met in college I found out I'm Lee distantly related to the shows amazing yeah the Cuban world the Cuban adventist world is tiny very much very tight on so so you started to question beliefs like you know outside of would you say it was during your time at flu right after your time nfl a I would say that might nfl a was sort of a time when my my faith identity I guess you could call it was in flux on one hand I believed you know I the Bible I believed in Christianity and believed in salvation but I don't think I had worked out all the finer theological points for myself yet sort of went to church every Saturday and accepted what I heard and my father who is a much smarter man than I am always gave me what I thought was a good reason at the time for for believing those things and so I took it I took it as as Gospel no pun intended and that's sort of how it went but at fla you know teenagers tend to rebel and you encounter a lot of different viewpoints And I think at that time there were friends that I think we we have mutual friends there that had their own sort of journey in faith that challenged me to answer some of those questions for myself and so I'd say by the end of my senior year I wasn't really a Christian anymore but at the beginning of my high school career might was I was definitely Emmaus you or whatever you were like that's natural I think when I when I think about the time growing up for me it was you know everything with the Bible and with seventh day adventists encrytpion general was just kind of given to me as fact and so like it was as real as gravity or Israel is like the food in front of me yes sort of deal and so there's no reason to question because I've just been told this is the this is reality and I've known nothing on side of this and so even in the journey of me questioning things and ultimately I decided to stay in faith it's still hard for me sometimes to to remember that like there's more to this than just what was handed to me it's always a challenge like that doesn't really informs the way the Lens that you look at the Bible through and faith through so that's like yeah that's huge so what would you say is like I don't know one of one of the earlier questions that you started to have to wrestle with or deal with I'd say it's a fairly common question it was I'd say the first time I ever tried to read the Bible all the way through you know to this day I don't remember who the preacher was but I attended a sermon I think it was is at forest lake where it was sort of a challenge to pick up the Bible and read it for yourself you know no scripture and know how to interpret it yourself and I sort of said you know what I I have all these questions and I can go to all these people but at the end of the day I should go right to the source and figured out for myself so I started to read it and as you know you you encounter yeah exodus Leviticus Deuteronomy and it's a very very different world from the one wherein the twentieth and Twenty First Century where you know they they had this reality of war and and and intertribal conflict and so you're immediately thrust into this into this world where Oh you know you have chosen the chosen nation of Israel and they're encountering the amalakites in in the land of Canaan and they're encountering the city of Jericho and and all of the things that they're commanded to do in taking the land for themselves or taking the land that they've that they've been promised and that sort of hits you like wow that's something I can't square with my personal sense of ethics at least at the time yeah and so that was a major stumbling block for me so I'd say that was the first thing that came up for me I mean you're talking within within six chapters of the Bible starting you're talking about basically mass genocide and it's God that's literally it's God that's doing it so very quickly it's an amazes me when I when I think about like stories like that and then I remember like children's Sabbath School where arcus painted as this wonderful thing and you see the mark with a rainbow and all this water really like millions of dead people in that life eerily dark correct like was like the Christian version of like almost want to say happy tree friends sort of deal you don't see the blood and Gore but it was that kind of thing this horrible thing seemingly horrible painted be this beautiful thing and rock so honestly that's still there still some stuff in there that I still able to reconcile with ultimately there's a lot in there that I understand is given as you know it's given his history whether it's good or bad add like either this happened or this story was passed down through generations of you know Hebrews and Israelites and so like this just happened and it's not necessarily what that means it's endorsing it for me to tell the story on or the for the Bible stories so I think of judges nineteen where someone's literally cut up into pieces and without a gag the King of the Malachite no this was I cannot remember exactly who was took forgive you the but it was Yeah it was like this horrible story in the whole purpose of that story if you like whereas Jesus in that field as opposed to point to Jesus where this rose prostitutes two million pieces right and it's like another point of that story is that Jesus wasn't in it like it's not that this was a good thing is that this was a bad thing in this shows what this not carefulness say this it doesn't show what happens when you don't have Jesus but it shows kind of where how can I say this in within proper nuance it's like it shows some of the ugliest things that can happen when society gives up on what or when you when you walk away from Jesus so the idea being not everyone will go and do something that terrible but it's easy it becomes easier to justify that if if you are not living within a realm of falling eight some sort of Thicke the drives you that direction so it's or drowsy the opposite direction so not saying that nonbelievers believes of another faith tradition or more aw I I'll say this the one thing that I really appreciate about people who don't believe anything is that if they're doing something that's good it means just doing it because they think it's the right thing and they're not doing any selfish motivation correct and that's been one of my that's something that's really challenged in convicted mean to ask like why am I doing something good right so it's not that people are worse or bad if they don't believe it does show what happens if you decide to not have any boundary in your life your period regardless of faith background I think that's where I sit on that I think that's the new ones I'd have to sometimes in conversation I try to figure that out without taking myself into a hole yeah absolutely but so easy for that.
