How Can We Educate the Government to Reclassify Stem Cells?
"How can there be more pressure put on the federal government, especially in declaring stem cells to be drugs to get them just reclassified as, you know, frankly, the blood or anything else that we use. What is where is that in the process right now? You know, that's a really good question and I would love to have an opportunity to speak to some of the people in the Senate and even in the house or people who are actively involved in healthcare and the government level to give them a look at the latest data and safety factors. With what's been published in peer reviewed journals to show them this is something that really should be have a second look at at this point in time. But again, we'll be fighting the big industries that do whatever they can to lobby against this. It's going to be a tough, but I think it's going to be a very difficult battle. But at the same time, I think what we're doing out of the country is allowing us to gather more and more safety data to show and present to the government here that this is the future of medicine. And we have within our bodies a regenerative potential to use to really extend health span dramatically. And if I could entertain you for about a minute and tell you what happened to Vatican, this was one of the biggest moments of my life. So I was presenting my research how we could reverse the aging process in adult stem cells from 80 year old people bring their stem cells back to 30 year old functioning stem cells without moving or replacing genes. So when I finished the head cardinal and I was doing this in front of global TV and the whole college of cardinals. So they had cardinals from the Vatican science department stood up and said to me, young man, why would you want to make people live longer? It's against God's will. So you can imagine, I'm thinking, what am I going to say here? And it's funny because I looked over his head and there I saw one of the statues from Michelangelo and something it just dawned on me. So I said to him, your holiness, this is not about making people live longer. It's about helping them live healthier and giving them a few extra years of healthy quality time. Not that they're going to live longer, but they're going to be healthier the last part of their lives.

Because i was blown away with this fact but it was once a letter in the english alphabet. Yes this is the missing twenty-seventh seven letter there you go. You've got it the national anchor sand day fact of the day right there. Yes so okay. It was almost going to be a letter but it got downgraded and it is now classified as punctuation. It's just awful. you know. yeah yeah. It's a bummer. It feels kind of like pluto. You know once a planet now reclassified to dwarf planet not not cool but today let's celebrate this symbol that replaces three key strokes with one. Well actually i guess it's not really three because you've got press the shift in order to get the simple still. It saves us some time and especially in tweets. When you got to get to that certain character limit. Unita's change all your hands to an percents. Yeah i know it's kind of a last minute thought but anyway and percents where where would ben and jerry's be right a and w in w eminem's smith and wesson you don't wanna take it away from smith and wesson that could be p all right. Let's let's celebrate national day by looking at some events in history. Fifteen o four is where we start today. And michelangelo's david yeah. This is a marble sculpture that took three years for michelangelo to create originally. It was going to go on top of this building right. They were gonna put all these other statues on top of this building but then they realized this thing weighs six tons. Yeah it's a six ton marble statue so getting it on the roof especially back in fifteen o four. It's going to be a little difficult. So instead they place it near the entrance of the first town hall in florence italy. Now here's the thing. This thing was so big right and you know. They couldn't exactly just put him on a forklift because back then it took four days just to get it from michael angela's studio that plaza. Yeah okay so they put it in this plaza it's outdoors it's in front of a building a brick wall behind it looks kind of like a comedy club anyway. In the mid eighteen hundreds of the statue started to crack. So you can't have michelangelo's famous sculpture cracking right. So they decided. Let's get this thing indoors. I don't really know how long it took him but they moved it in eighteen. Seventy three to a museum and inside that museum is the actual michelangelo. But they said you know we gotta keep something here in front of the town hall so they put a replica of michelangelo's david. So you can go there. And you're you think you're gonna see but you can actually see the real one in the museum. Okay so this thing is big right actually. The base makes up about five percent of the statue which makes david's actual body height at sixteen feet one point five inches. It's a giant naked guy and most people don't have a problem with that. However reportedly queen victoria was shocked upon first viewing of the statues. David will say and so would they decided to do was. They decided to sort of. Put some hooks strategically placed where you can't really see them if you look at it. But apparently they would put a fig-leaf over the the private parts of david to cover things up so when the royals would come to visit that was hung on the spot there by the way for those of you wondering this hid approximately five point five inches of davidson marble. Okay nineteen google's rate. It tells you everything doesn't it. All right nineteen seventy four president. Gerald ford pardons richard nixon. Okay so we've talked about nixon plenty on the show especially about watergate right and all the crime surrounding that well in this day president nixon was pardoned of all those offenses that we've talked about on the show. Everything that he did against the united states. Anything that was committed between july nineteen sixty nine and august nineteen seventy four so even stopped the whole impeachment. Thing at this point okay. It's spartan what welcome you do. So prior to the nineteen seventy-two election. The that's when the break in happened right to the democratic headquarters at the watergate office building in washington. Dc well at the time of the election in seventy two. Nixon wasn't really associated with any of this people didn't really know and so he won the election with a landslide. Vote but one year later. Revelations started to come about and that indicated that nixon really knew what was going on and actually in many ways directed the watergate crimes. Okay so nixon resigns and ford becomes president and just a little bit after their he. Does this pardon on this day. Right back in seventy four so you can imagine people were not too happy about this Basically they thought that maybe some sort of deal was made. where like. Oh you become president. I'll put you appoint vice president. You're going to become president. And then you're gonna pardon me. That's what's going to happen. Ford says that wasn't the case. Ford said that he wanted to heal the nation. Now this really hurt for it on his reelection right catch. I can't even say re election because he was never actually elected president because you.

"The line. That mclean joe selected in his manuscript. The really one finish the poem that he didn't choose to send a bizarre in a little bit. More pessimistically is says. So what are you still expecting lord from me you know. It goes from being deeply deeply pessimistic. To at least they hope for salvation. The hopes of christ will embrace you embrace us embrace him but really what nightline joe is really cry of despair when he writes. I is a cry of despair. That what more can you expect from me. What more can i do have an. I lived long enough. Have an i devoted myself to saint peter's and devoted myself to you. God how many poems have i written about love and salvation and yet. How much more do you want from me. He takes over. Saint peter's of the construction of saint peter's at age. Seventy one anytime any continues to do so until he dies at age almost ninety as you said and actually these are the years. He's busier between the ages of seventy one eighty nine at any other time in his lights. We tend to focus on joe's early career because they're sort of these wonderful accomplishments. They are astonishing. David and the pieta one after the other after the other but in his later life he is simultaneously organizing and supervising the construction of six different major architectural sites. All around rome as well as writing poetry as well as organizing friends as well as writing letters. it's his his passion never wanes. his energy. almost is unflagging. It's really kind of an inspiration to all of us to think that he was ready to retire at age. Seventy and ready to go back to florence and then the pope says no. You're going to start and take over the building of the largest construction site in the world and he did so with an unbelievable amount of dedication in energy so in a sense he started life all over again as a creative artist at the age of seventy one so he's still reflecting on the fact that he has had this long life and he's kind of astonished added i think but there's a sadness to because he has out actually sort of outlived. Almost everybody is important to him including some of those very very important. Inspirations to his poetry most importantly dettori colona xlt now long dead and a lot of his poetry dropped off he stopped writing poetry for years and years and years after her death in fifteen forty five fifteen forty six and this is unusual to find a poem many many years later because he almost give it up. So i'm i'm attracted to this poem. Because i was i attracted as you suggested not because as everybody else is looking at the content but i was looking at the struggle that he was struggling to write this poem as much as he was struggling to carve. Let's say the florentine pieta which is about the same time that he's writing this poetry in the florentine. Pieta is the great three figure. Four figure work. That was going to mark his own graves. And this is a night -nificant sculpture. That is unfinished and impact abandoned and front in frustration by michelangelo himself. We find it extremely moving and beautiful work but mcclellan to himself never really was satisfied at all with an intact is deeply distressed by it had very great difficulty completing this work and i found that this home was the literary equivalent to that that he was having as much struggle and difficulty writing this poem as he was in carving this important sculpture and they are both about the end of life because the flaunting pieta was the marker for his own grave. He was carving his own grave. Marker and this poem away is his own grave marker in literary form scud cooking tuna gravy must new mukul in the laundry show while fragile. Lay not stanko revolt literally. Bill pro-trade Relieved of a troublesome in heavy corpse. And set. free from the world. I turn to you my dear lord as tired fragile boat heads from the frightful tempest toward sweet. Call your thorns and your nails and both of your palms and your benign humble and merciful face. Promise to my unhappy soul. The grace of deep repentance and hope of salvation may your holy is not look upon my past with justice alone nor likewise your pure ear. Emilio your stern arm not stretch out to it. May your blood suffice to wash and cleanse my sins and the older i grow the more meat overflow with ever ready aid and full forgiveness sarah He moves from a description of suffering the thorns and the nails to the face. That's merciful right. So the the the the character who withstood this right the sacrifice that was made and suggesting perhaps a happy end. That's possible for us. Because of the sacrifice so repentance and salvation and then he moves into to kind of forms of prayer right beginning with may mayor holy is not look upon my past with justice alone nor likewise your pure ear and may or stern arm not stretch out to it so here we have this judgment right. Look kindly on me in other poetry. Michelangelo will say have mercy on me and thinking poem to eighty in particular is a verse that begins museu demands directly from psalm. Fifty penitential psalm in the volt gate also aligned that dante. The poet expresses virgil So we we. We have the sort of idea of issue mercy. Don't judge me help me reconcile and then in the final terse it may your blood suffice to wash and cleanse my sins the older i grow the more it overflow with ever ready aid in full forgiveness. Here we have this overflowing grace. We move from that reconciliation. Make it right to the means. By which i might be brought back into right relationship and save right. We had this reference to gray so we have both a mystical. And the more what's been described as more legalistic you know elements brought together here and michelangelo draws to think about both these things.

"Roy. He's making a case for the appropriateness of four of an old man loving as well The emphasis here on what one loves. What is the object of one's love and what he specifies is to love something divine it's not shameful to allow something Divine this is simply an illusion ally and it's important for the soul the older soul to have such dreams as long as one is loving what he puts here natural things that respect balanced limits in moderation as long as the love is not immoderate. Excessive michelangelo worked on his poetry thoughtfully in his painstakingly as his sculptures. He didn't have a book for poetry but we have manuscripts of poems in his elegant hand his poems are everywhere on the backs of drawings architectural plans or across them around the edges of letters q worked and reworked post for years.

Beauty your hardness or your scorn nor fortune nor my destiny nor chance if you hold both death and mercy in your heart at the same time and my lowly which though burning can draw from it anything but death william wallace so you might notice what the last word is. Last word is death but it is a poem about love and it is directed to batory colona and almost every time we ever cite this poem. We almost never recognized that. It's a love poem directed to the toria cologne. We immediately talked about. It's a poem about nick. Yours art the rest of the poem most of the phone in fact the whole poem is a sonnet directed towards vittoria colona. And he's using art as a way to express the difficulty of love and the difficulty of death that these are things he can't master but he depends on his congenial to win over the block of marble. It is the block of marble that is resistant. He saying that an artist of really good artists will be able to realize whatever great mind or whatever great idea he has if his hand obeys his intellect. But that's rare. That's difficult as is love as his death. None of those things will obey the intellect only the art will obey the intellect. And that's even that only sometimes. Am i glad struggled with his art a lot and this is something we don't recognize about that. We tend to think that he was able to accomplish anything and everything because he did accomplish some nag medicine things. He carved the day that he carved the tar but he also left a lot of the works unfinished. The only finished seventeen works in his entire life even though he started thirty seven marbles and left a lot of things undone and he was dissatisfied with a lot of things that he even. We've been think are pretty magnificent whether in the face of love art or death. Michelangelo kept his biting sense of humor. Throughout his life was most wicked. When making fun of himself. I am shut up here all alone and poor as the pulp of a food bites. Husk like a genie bound up in a bottle. Ecologial wrote this poem when he was in his seventies. It's outrageously graphic and outright raunchy yet at fifty five lines. It is one of his longest and most polished poems. I'm fascinated by the self parody because all of suffering in the poem is done in comic imagery about something that is deadly serious bulgur. Al ski is professor emeritus of the university of virginia. He's authored many books. On renaissance humor including michelangelo's colangelo snows. And then when we hear about its scored.

His tied up in a ample llegado is a word that crops up over and over again in his poetry that he's a tracer trapped is tied to something there is a point and i think it's the one where he gets to so the crudest heart it says around my doorway find gigantic dung heaps around my doorway. I find gigantic donkey. As if nobody who it's grapes or has taken a physics ever goes anywhere else to shit to signal to the reader. This is funny. I'm not really winding.

"A human being in all of his or her beauty is a foretaste of heavenly love it will lead us toward something greater one of the things that he does in this poem to mix up. The different levels of love is to use the word seniority. He does this in a number of poems because there is ambiguous their seniora means lord ch and with a capital s. It means the locked right god. With lower case s it's the term of respect for every man a senior so he exploits and beauity to blur the line between physical and spiritual love vote able senior quick university. Full jacek who s gone can focused more on correspondent opinion. Low if jar. I wish i wanted laura. Don't want between my heart. And the fire highs availa vice which moderates the fire. So that my div don't match my pin and makes my page on lawyer. It's a poem about yearning is endless. Intense never quite satisfied always delayed gratification. So in the whole poem michelangelo is completely melding those two kinds of language the earthly and spiritual love and you move upward from earthly passion and love to divine hashing and love one inspires the. But he's really saying. I am so afraid of desire because i've been taught that it's sinful and i have a psychic need to distance myself from the possible overwhelming temptations of desire because the consequences of sin are so dire one could be damned for these guilty Desires i love you with my tongue and then regretted. Love doesn't reach my heart yet. I don't know where. I might open a door to grace. So it can spread within my heart and chase out. Oh pitiless pride rent advil you. Lord break down that wall with which its hardness keeps delayed from us. The son of your light extinguished in his world sendai promised light. We will see some day to your beautiful bride so that my heart may earn free from any doubt and few only you what he then does in the sense that the final part of summit is issue a plea to the beloved whoever that is to do the work of opening him up a which he seems incapable of doing for himself. And it's it's a it's begging. It's pleading please. Tear down the veil. Please let be experienced the tent city of your love and this passive mode is one of the things. That's particularly innovative about michelangelo's poetry. He number of times casts himself in metaphors or terms that would be generally or stereotypically considered feminine. He says things like I wished to be a mold an empty form that dettori colona will fill james cecil mentioned vitoria colona another dear friend with whom he had an intense relationship. And she more than anyone shows michelangelo. How poetry can be an instrument to achieving his lifelong desire. To please god and wind salvation. Since his youth he was attracted to catholic mystics in his sixties. He was drawn to a group of mystical. Reformers called the spirituality their practices emphasize building a direct unmediated connection to christ. And this is where he met vetoed mccollum who would have a profound impact on his poetry his art and his life so vito colonna was an italian poet and noble woman comes from very powerful family in the period and she was extremely devout syrup. Road is a professor in the department of french and italian at stanford university. Her book michelangelo's christian mysticism spirituality poetry and art sixteenth century. Italy explores the religious environment and the role of italia colonnna in michelangelo's poetry and after the death of her husband she was after widow. She wanted to be a nun and was prevented from doing so. She lived a very devout life and turned to writing spiritual poetry in the fifteen thirty s in particular very sort of delicate moment in terms of religious history in the period. Where leading up to really a moment with the council of trent defining catholic doctrine and really making firm distinctions between protestantism and cap and autism and between kalana with someone who at potocari deeply spiritual became a bit of a model her sonnets in particular for later writers but she herself as a as a correspondent and interlocutor in the period is frequently described by others as having this charismatic effect. She would give advice or right in ways. Inspired people made them feel a little bit different than they were before. And so where does she. Michelangelo intersect well. They met in the nearly fifteen thirty s and became friends. I mean in a way that when could become friends in a when two people were a very different sort of social social circles. I guess in in the period but michelangelo produce some intense spiritual drawings for her. They exchanged letters and she prepared to gift manuscripts of poetry so one of them was for michaelangelo hundred poems and we know that he read them very closely. She seemed have put some care and his own spiritual concerns in the way that she arranged these poems and michelangelo's most prolific period. writing poetry. Sort of coincides with this period of when he met her and also is engaged with a another roman nobleman tommaso cavalieri effectively around two hundred three hundred and two poems. We have by michelangelo written in this period and of the seventeen shirley known to be occasioned by that relationship like written for her inspired by her or meant to sort of engage themes particular to the circles and religious discourse in which they participated as part of a broader group We see that most of them are mystical and they speak to her as as being sort of a a mediator of grace for him and he draws on artistic references and explicit new platonic and also you know christian language t to capture that influence in his life amir syrup. Rodin's interpretation of the same poem. We heard earlier that begins. I wish i wanted lord. What i don't want but i've allowed senior quite cunanan on volya vocal cord. Jackson bellsa scorn the fokker martha on correspondent panel. I wish i wanted laura. I don't want between my heart and the fire heizo veil of ice which moderates the fire. So that my deeds don't match my pin and makes my page a lawyer this hour. We have ever directed dress to the lord riot. It's not specified which when the senior but a could be an earthly beloved but by the end. It's clear that it's christ and we have this expression of what we would describe as a desire or if we want to talk about augusta guston in the will double will to want something to not want simultaneously right to will something and to resist it. And so what. Is it here that the poet wants and well. He expresses something right that he doesn't truly feel highlights. This discrepancy between what he says with his tongue abbott. What doesn't reach his heart. And so there's a reference here to his pride in all of the things that stand between that experience or full immersion in love of christ for capacity to love christ and the things that stand in the way of that so pride Rendered by the idea of hardness right and and that okay softness of course being the effective grace and love and so in the second half of the poem. Michelangelo ask christ to break down the wall and to rent the veil these things that sort of stand between him and that divine presence that squatty vale right rent that veil this is something we find in in other poets in the period. You taty columbia. Giral must've been orla. It's not only michelangelo but michelangelo asks for the light to be sent. We move from fire imagery to light and he describes himself as the beautiful bride right. The bellas suppose this is the mystical bride of christ. I am explicitly mystical vocabulary. And this is the idea of the souls union and he longs to be free of doubts. We moved from his recognition of of sin to the recognition of his powerlessness night to overcome it and a desire to love Fully so the implication here is of course it his attention his desire goes to something more earthly and he would like it all to be directed to god. The idea here is that. Yes i you sort of discovery her sin and then it gets worse and then you realize that and come to the state of fear fear of death fear of damnation right and then ultimately this recognition that you really powerless to do anything about it. Unless grace enters your life and is.

"Then shortly after michelangelo's call back to florence and how does even himself. The david is unveiled three years later. In march fifteen o four the public accolades and his success often obscure his lifelong inner turmoil. The turmoil so poignantly captured in his poetry michelangelo's corpus of poetry is called that he he never titled his poem so we know them only by number he is the first write a major amount of love poetry to another man and that is utterly novel within western christian tradition. So michelangelo's poetry deserves credit for opening up a wedge in the western literary tradition for the expression of love that had been suppressed fairly effectively for over a thousand years. I'm james sasser. Slow and i mad professor emeritus of art history and renaissance studies at the city university of new york. James cecil is author of the poetry of meek alangelo. An annotated translation used in this program his nineteen eighty six groundbreaking book ganymede in the renaissance homosexuality and armed society begins with an exploration of michaelangelo's poems that desire to address unorthodox and somewhat controversial emotions led him to a very creative process where he had to learn to express somewhat deviant or novel feelings and he does find a language for that at the same time he also had to be careful to code or conceal or under play the radical implications of what he was talking about. And so the poetry walks a fine line between very honest confessional and a somewhat coy indirect tone where those who are looking will understand what he's saying Others will not and that i think is his great creative contribution. The other sort of essential organizing principle behind his creative work and his personality is how conflicted he is. He's a divided soul. He is eternally on the horns of a dilemma because he calls himself in a letter the most inclined to love other people. He's wide open to passion and love and desire but he is also a very devout observant christian and he's tortured by the possible conflict between earthly desire and heavenly commands. So that the poetry see saws back and forth between a kind of ecstatic celebration of the glories of love and lacerating himself for feeling such things and feeling guilty. One of the great love poems is number fifty nine where he says he dreams about one soul in two bodies made eternal if one chaste love if one sublime compassion if one fate are equally shared between two lovers if the hard lot of troubles the other if one spirit if one will governs to hearts if one soul in two bodies is made eternal racing both to heaven with similar wings if love with one blow and one gilded dart can burn and the vitals into hearts he starts off by saying that this is a kosto amore a chase or virtuous love not a physical love which would be problematic and that was clear to both him and to to moscow de cavalieri michelangelo's relationship with tommaso. The kaaba yeti is one of the two most significant friendships. That inspired much of michelangelo's poetry. Tommaso came from a noble roman family and was in his late teens when he met me. Colangelo who was nearing sixty. They shared interests in art antiquarian. Ism architecture literature people admire to mazda for his gracious manners intelligence and hard work and noted his extraordinary physical beauty if one will governs to hearts if one soul in two bodies is made eternal racing both to heaven with similar wings if love with one blow and one gilded dart can burn and ren divided into hearts if neither loves himself and they love each other with one joy one zeal to such a degree that both might wish to come to a single end. Thousands and thousands of would not make a fraction of such a love nut such fidelity and only anger could untie and break it the poetry to kaaba leary. Sometimes really just let himself go and he just talks about this unfamiliar experience of an ecstasy. He's never felt before. And in fact we have no records of serious term relationships up until this time this is the real thing to michelangelo. And he is wonderfully happy about this what he calls sublime a relationship but even here he's worried about whether such a thing could actually materialize and last the last line of this poem or the the final three lines where he says thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of other lovers would not make such a fraction of such a relationship. Only anger could try and break it. I suspect that this means again. That cavalieri is sometimes angry with him over the excessive nature of the passion.

"To the county ride home for tuesday. June i twenty twenty one. I'm jackson bird. Five hundred years later. The medise. Continue to ruin michelangelo's artworks but fortunately some bacteria are on the scene to restore his works to their former glory. The new naming scheme for covid nineteen variants and the story of allendale texas once the only village in the entire world to be fully air conditioned. Here are some of the cool things from the news. Today it's not often that in art restoration done well makes the headlines. Restorations can can be like cleaning the house. People rarely notice when it's been done but they certainly notice when it hasn't an art restoration likewise goes viral win in unqualified persons. Say fresco of jesus into a blurry monkey painting. Bud doesn't usually garner attention when successfully undergone in less the successful was achieved by slathering statues with corpse juice eating bacteria. that's what happened last year at the medici chapel in florence where they employed a few types of bacteria to clean the michelangelo designed statues entombs of the medici muslim. According to the new york times this all started in two thousand sixteen when marina vincente. One of the restorers at the medici chapel attended a conference in which biologist anna rosa's pre coty and her colleagues from the italian national agency for new technologies shared. How they had used to give a fresh wash to baroque era. Frescoes at palazzo fernanda. In rome so then in two thousand nineteen when the chapel decided to begin the first major restorations since nineteen eighty-eight vincente advocated for the bacteria method. And you know. I should say that. This all really began in the fifteen hundreds. When pope leo the tenth the first medici pope decided that his family should have a great lavish mausoleum designed by michelangelo. Some medea were interred there throughout the years. As michelangelo continued working on it. And this was in the fifteen twenties and thirties. Around the time of the sack of rome when the medici were ousted and then later came back and michelangelo likewise fled rome at one point and then was later pardoned but he eventually left for good and the mausoleum was never finished and shortly after my glandular left allesandro medici the duke of florence and son of lorenzo depiero was assassinated by a relative in fifteen thirty seven alissandria was not well liked and his body therefore was merely wrapped in carpet and unsown asli thrown into one of the tombs one belonging to his father whom he would ultimately share it with now because it was not properly prepared. His corpse has become one of the primary drivers of stains on the marble quoting the new york times. Over the centuries he seeped into michelangelo's marble the chapel's experts said creating deep stains button shaped deeper and more recently providing a feast for the chapels preferred cleaning products. A bacteria called saraya ficarra s h seven and quotes so the stains are thanks to allesandro general passage of time in hand oils of tourists as well as the residue left behind from plasters. That were used to make copies of the marble statues and structures over the years the times notes that descriptions of stains on the marble began as early as fifteen ninety five so this has been an ongoing project for centuries and thus enter the new bacteria method quoting again in november. Two thousand nineteen. The museum brought in italy's national research council which used infrared spectroscopy that revealed cal site silicate and other more organic remnants on the sculptures and two tombs that face one another across the new sacristy that provided a key blueprint for spree. Coty the biologist to choose the most appropriate bacteria from a collection of nearly one thousand strains usually use to breakdown petroleum oil spills or to reduce the toxicity of heavy metals then. The restoration team tested the most promising eight strains behind the altar on a small rectangular pallet spotted with rows of squares like a tiny marble bingo board all of the ones selected were non hazardous and without spores said former director of the medici chapels museum monica bedi and quotes the chapel began the process before the pandemic and after brief closure picked it up again before tourists returned spreading gels of the s h seven bacteria all over the sarcophagi and you can see in the photos in the new york times article linked in the show notes that it really does work. Plus art restorer. Danielle amano pointed out to the times that it's quote better for our health for the environment and the works of art and quotes and the medici chapel is not the first place to utilize bacteria to clean works of art. Quoting the verge. Italy in particular is known for putting microbes to work in conservation efforts of sulfur. Chomping bacteria was used to remove black crusts from parts of the milan cathedral. An performed way better than a comparable chemical treatments in pisa. Bacterial strain that eats pollutants cleanup damaged frescoes on cathedral dome and at a cemetery near the leaning tower. Other researchers are mapping out the bacteria and other tiny beans that already live on paintings. They found that some microbes that made their home on the pigments might actually help. Keep the artwork from deteriorating. In the first place and quote it is so cool to see fusion of art science and history all working in harmony towards better solutions for the future in something that.

And i thought it was true up until they wasn't he search standing there looking up getting back. Yes was so. in fact. The artist in his assistance used wooden scaffold that allow them to stand upright in reach above their heads. That must have been so hard really. Michelangelo himself designed the unique system platforms which were attached to walls with brackets so the impression that michelangelo painted on his back might come from the nineteen sixty five film. The agony and the ecstasy in which charlton heston portrayed the painting on the ceiling. You guess lynch. Hey done i've seen that before. He did planet of the apes. I read the book that mainly ecstasy. It was quite good. Had read it in art history class area anyway. I remember liking it. Yeah okay in fifteen. O nine increasingly uncomfortable.

Yeah so he was describing a project to his friend giovanni Histoy off quote. i. I've already grown a goiter from this torture. And then he wrote in a poem that was probably tongue in cheek but he went on to complain that his stomach squashed under his chin that his face made a fine floor for the droppings in his skin hangs loose below me and that his spines all nodded from folding myself over so he ended the poem that he shouldn't have changed his day job in the right place quote.

"So how did michaelangelo. So expertly sculpted human forum of intimate knowledge gained through really getting into the nitty gritty of the human bodies. Inside at. Yeah so in this. Michelangelo was not alone. Renaissance artists of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries especially those in the italian schools studied the human form the florentine academy of art had an obligatory course in anatomy in which its students executed drawings from cadavers and skeletons when available few artists performed dissections but most attended the public dissections of the local physicians in learned from anatomical texts on their driver's license. Instead of like donate your organs. You donate your body to art. Yeah your heart do you. Are you a. Are you a patron of the arts. Right that So the church. Of course which loomed omnipresent in you know it big shower right on the church regarded dissection dissection as a desecration of the dead but it did intermittently permit next section of the cadavers of condemned criminals. They deserve it right. I can instead of being like hung. Well they were already dead. Get your party so but you don't get you can be whatever. Yeah you can be canaveral. Yeah you can be all ruined some sort of weird medieval torture. Course i would iraq or this body can be detected so at the tender age of seventeen. Michelangelo was dissecting cadavers from the hospital at the monastery of santo spiritual oh though this practice had long been condemned by the catholic church pope six discs the fourth permitted the dissection in public of condemned criminals. Like i was saying if they were decently buried however however bodies were also stolen skinned and dissect god like that of grant yes yeah grape robbers pretty gross rate who grew back down so violent. Yeah yeah knives. You've defended by washing hands. Yeah with your hand. Yeah just throwing poop out the window right. So i do a lot of ways. So michelangelo presumably dissect the bodies legally. He carried out his. He carried out his own. Dissections making molds of cells in various pastures to reveal their surface anatomy which he applied in painting nude slaves seated near the symbols and prophets in panels of the sistine chapel. And so we come to the sistine chapel so it is true that much of michelangelo's work is religious in nature. This is due to the fact that most of his patrons were pope's yeah yeah like he worked for them. Yeah he did. Yes then the domenici's which were you know big at the time. Also popes and the just like So it was pope. Julius the second that hired him to paint the ceiling of the sistine chapel which is one of his most recognizable. Works along which you think if you think michelangelo. That's a shame chapel. yeah so apparently. Michelangelo was reluctant to take job. Like he didn't want all know he said. But i'm not a painter..

"Learning about him in my organic chemistry. While he added that chemical remedies could treat it with some illnesses which yeah yep. Then there's ambrose hara and he's from france he helped lay the foundations for modern forensic pathology and surgery. Wow and he was. He was in the fifteen hundred says when he lived he was the royal surgeon for four french kings so those kings must have just been driven dead like flies right right. He wasn't i know he lived eighty years. So it's he was an expert in battlefield medicine particularly wound treatment and surgery and he invented several surgical instruments. This guy paret wants treated a group of wounded patients in two ways. Either quarter ization cauterisation or boiled. Elderberry oil so he ran out of oil. The elderberry oil and started to treat the rest of the second group with turpentine oil roses in a gun. All the all of that mix yet that was mixed together. So you have got. Carter is like a significant wound. Right where you'd have to quarter is a on the battlefield. So the following day. He noticed that those he treated with turpentine had recovered. While those who received the coordination the whaling oil were still in severe pain. He realized how effective turpentine was intriguing. Wounds and virtually abandoned cauterisation from then on par also revived the greek method of a ligature of the arteries during amputation. Instead of quarters asian. So i guess he actually showed the so them back up well as opposed to just. Let's burn it to seal it And this method significantly improved survival rates and it was important breakthrough in surgical practice despite the risk of infection. So yeah because they weren't cleaning their hands. That me became later yes i. I don't think it came gloves came. I don't think came until like eighteen. Hundreds honestly until germ theory became widely accepted. But they even wash their hands before surgery right. Like yeah yeah. It's pretty fine so this is interesting to Also believed that phantom pains sometimes experienced by amputees even if they feel it could still out were related to the brain and not something mysterious with the amputated. Limb the birds. Everything must be supernatural. If it can't explain it it's from something else. So he's thinking. No maybe it's the brain So i thought that was. I thought he. He had a lot of interesting stuff. Yeah he gets to contribute. Yeah so despite some movement in the ideas of pathogens and advances in the understanding of pathology and surgery physicians still did not know how to cure infectious disease so they were like almost there but they just weren't quite when faced with the plague or syphilis. They often turned to superstitious rites in magic so at.

"After michaelangelo steph that certain members of the upper class began eating on plates in brass. Cutlery appeared standards of etiquette would not appear until the seventeenth century. I have a little side note. Yeah because of a side note about with your hands as surely michelangelo's doing and daughter does like all the time. She leaves her hands a her grandparents. Like don't like that when she's at the table and i've always been like you know maybe it's okay with your hand. Yeah i did a little research about it. According to i of ava the alternative medicine system with historical roots in india. Yes heavily practice in nepal which we talked about yes which spreads. I didn't talk about that woman. Hunter everything i know. It dawned on me them. Eating with hands can deliver surprising benefits proving to be good for your digestion and helping to absorb essential nutrients.

That's really hard. It's hard to do. Because i usually by the time eating pretty darn hungary and and it's like ready to be on the go. Yeah an- Yeah like oh we gotta do this or that. We've just gotten back in late now. You get home. We're got before bedtime. Yeah right so. Wow that was really interested in getting tried it. My oldest also eats along with his hands. Yeah touches his food with his hands like aids instead of you know my husband's a grab a fork. No work doesn't even make it. Sometimes i would say it's fifty fifty. Yeah depending on the style right. Yeah yeah so but to be noted like when you're eating like in a more mindful way you certainly are aware of the portion that you're eating more as well in that in turn makes you digest better because you're paying and slowly you bring more aware of what's going on..

"Oh i know. I wonder what was in that. Yeah so michelangelo just the american. We're way yeah. He was born in capri a small town situated in -veloping berina near our rezzo. Tuscany after michelangelo's birth. Their family returned to florence where he was raised. His mother died in fourteen eighty one when he was just six years old all during which time he was living with a nanny and her husband who was a stonecutter which that is where our guy gained his love for marble from the nannies husband. Saying that isn't and if he had lived with his mom maybe he would just another Crazy i think he would up though you think in him. Yeah now right. So he is quoted as saying quote. If there is some good in me it is because i was born in the little atmosphere of your country of arizo along with the milk of my nurse i received the knack of handling chisel and hammer with which i make my figures so as a young boy. Michelangelo was sent to foreigners to study grammar but instead preferred to study the paintings in the churches in fourteen eighty. Eight at the age of thirteen michelangelo was apprenticed to hill rawal. Dial master in frisco painting with the largest workshop in florence influenced by many others in florence michelangelo's career took off at this young age was thirteen. Yeah at thirteen. Lao so as we know he created some of the most famous pieces of all time. The statue of david was completed by fifteen four and the sistine chapel was painted between fifteen o eight in fifteen twelve all during a time known by art historians as the renaissance as you said he continued to work in florence until he moved to rome in fifteen thirty four where he worked on a number of architectural projects to include saint peter's basilica the pepple enclave. That is within the city of rome. He worked on this project that is known as the greatest creation of the renaissance until his death in fifteen sixty four so cool yeah Had a pretty full life. And he was constantly being commissioned work. Yes constant Counseling work. I guess that's a good place to be in and out right. Yeah so the word. Renaissance is borrowed from the french language. Meaning rebirth food. And the renaissance was largely the same as it was in the middle ages. Which has just before this right. So root vegetables were a staple for the rich and the poor carrots parsnips caraway fennel and turnips or most popular because they were so easy to keep store a Had to kind of keep them dry. Yeah yeah yeah. Yup peasants ate soup or mush at just about every meal made with these vegetables. They called it mush. They call it much. You get your mesh. Yeah so much together adds all amy. Asparagus was popular. But only for the wealthy Is 'cause like that just grows. Well it's like a we right. Didn't you see there's some indigenous you can find them.

I just seen to give us a little history about the renaissance which is of course the time that michelangelo lipton or michelangelo lived in so the renaissance occurred between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries and it is dubbed the age of discovery. It marked the transition from the middle ages to more modern times during the renaissance. There was a resurgence in the study of greek philosophy and a new way of thinking that manifested in art architecture politics science and literature by the fifteenth century. The invention of movable type led to the dissemination of ideas more rapidly across europe however the progress that the renaissance brought did not happen all at once. The first traces appeared in italy as early as thirteen th centuries so although the renaissance saw revolutions in many intellectual and social scientific pursuits as well as the introduction of modern banking and the field of accounting is perhaps best known for its artistic developments and contributions Leonardo da vinci and michelangelo who inspired the term renaissance man.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist
"The isabella stewart gardner. Museum was not surprising when he founded by isabella stewart gardner. She was a very wealthy woman who lived in boston and had a very large art collection. She was known to be very eccentric. Woman who would float the upper-class conventions of the boston elite she famously showed up to a concert of the boston symphony orchestra in one thousand. Nine hundred twelve with a white headband. That said oh you. Red sox and that was a really big deal at the time and caused much clutching of pearls and fainting. She was born into money was married into money and inherited a lot of money. She travelled extensively around the world and purchased are wherever she went. She established the museum in one thousand nine hundred three and worked with museum to curate. Its collection for twenty one years until her death in one thousand nine twenty four at the age of eighty four. She left the museum three point. Six million dollars will and she stipulated that nothing. In the museum's collection should ever be sold. Nothing new should ever be acquired. Any artworks shouldn't even be moved from the walls. She wanted everything to remain exactly as it was by the nineteen eighties. The building housing the collection was getting a bit rundown and security was very lax in one thousand. Nine hundred to the fbi worn the museum of a plan for our robbery but it only resulted in minor upgrades to the security system. The museum had no security cameras installed inside and most importantly the only had a single button with which they could call. The police which was located on the desk of one of the security guards other museums used a system where guard head to call the police every hour to notify them that everything was alright. If a call wasn't made then the police would come and the guards were also paid barely minimum wage. These facts would all become important. The robbers arrived just after midnight on sunday morning. On march eighteenth march seventeenth by the way is saint patrick's day. Which is one of the biggest holidays in boston. And this year. It was happening on a two men who were dressed as policemen there. Witnesses who saw them on the street but they assume that they were police. Never thought anything of it. There were two guards on duty that night. One twenty three years old and one thousand five years old from one of them. It was literally their first night on the job. Museum procedure dictated that one of the guards would patrol the building while the other said at the desk with the button which could notify the police at one twenty. Am the two men in police. Uniforms buzz the side entrance and they said they were there because of disturbance call. The guards didn't know of any disturbance call but they looked like real cops and it was saint patrick's day so something might have happened so they let the police in the men in police. Uniforms told the guard at the desk. Call the other guard down which he did one of the supposed cops then said to the guard behind the desk the desk where the buzzer was. Then he looked like a suspect they were looking for them to come forward which he did and then threw him up against the wall and handcuffed him. They've ended at the same to the other guard. And that's what. They notified them that this was a robbery. They then put tape over. The guards is and head and march them down into the basement where they were tied to pipes. The robbers took their wallets and told them that they knew where they lived in. If they cooperated they would get a reward in a year. All of that took about ten minutes from there. The robbers went into the gallery and started taking art in all. They took thirteen items an ancient chinese vase. A golden eagle from an unholy flag five sketches from gaza. Three works of rembrandt one from any one from flink and biggest of all the concert by vermeer one of only thirty four known vermeer paintings in the world. The robbers checked on the guards before they left. Took the security tape and left the building. The entire operation took eighty one minutes. The total estimated value of everything which was taken has been placed as high as five hundred million The vermeer itself was worth half the entire amount and it is believed to be the most expensive stolen object in the world when the next shift of guards arrived. They couldn't contact anyone to be let inside. They contacted the police who then finally found the guards bound and tied in the basement. With your work gone. The question then turned to who did it and whereas the art one of the things that stood out is that the robbers probably weren't experts in art and they probably weren't sent there to steal something in particular the way they handled the art indicated. Lack of familiarity moreover. They didn't take some far more. Valuable objects works by raphael michelangelo anticipations the rape of europa probably the most valuable object in the museum were untouched.

'Where Are The Women?': Uncovering The Lost Works Of Female Renaissance Artists
"Could not enter art academies in Italy, the cradle of Renaissance masters, no matter how talented Names of a few female artists of that time, and some from the centuries that followed, have often been lost in the mists of history. A Zen prior Sylvia Poggioli reports. There's an effort to bring their names and their work into the light. In this video tour of Florence is famed you Fitzy Museum travel writer Rick Steves list. Some of the highlights the United of Inches enunciation is exquisite. Michelangelo's holy family shows he could do more than carved statues. And Raphael in 2009, a nonprofit group was founded in Florence to see who's missing. I started going into the deposits and the museum storage is and addicts and Checking what was actually there. What works by women? It was something that had never been done before. Because no one had ever before. Asked the question, Where are the women? That's Linda Fanconi, an American writer who helped found a W a advancing women artists. The group has identified some 2000 artworks by women in museum basements and damp churches and finance The restoration of 70 works. Fanconi describes the challenges women artists faced in the Renaissance. Women didn't have citizenship. They couldn't produce art as a profession. They couldn't study anatomy no in the nude figures, for example, because it just wasn't considered appropriate. The inability to study in the same in the same forum as male artists is very significant. A major discovery was a huge canvas 21 ft. Long off 13 life sized men. The only known last supper painted by a woman. She's the 16th century Dominican nun, Clumpy Llanelli who worked inside a convent. Florence has a long last supper tradition. But, says Francona, most of them are static. Whereas Nelly actually chooses sort of the key moment in which Christ announces his betrayal and you have all of the apostles. Feeling the emotion of that very serious news. And so she is able to do. A study of their their responses of their psychological responses Give her time the nuns works were prized because they were believed to be imbued with spirituality. Art restorer, Elizabeth Week says. Like so many female artists, medley was then for gotten It seems to me to be about the middle of the 19th century when these paintings stop being mentioned in the guidebooks. Women artists stop being mentioned. If nobody writes about you, Then you fade from history. Weeks is restoring two large works by the Atlanta Ferrone E an 18th century child prodigy. Little is known of her other than she was born in 17. 20 lived in a period of great change, says writer and Ghaleb. We do know that well educated women. Certainly we're getting much more of a seat at the table, and there were definitely a few women who were achieving much greater. Prominence. Then before hands while still in her twenties, Federal Me was awarded a prestigious commission by a Florence hospital to paint two ovals. The subject matter was usually reserved for men spirituals scenes to help heal the ill. The art of healing has been a constant theme of AWS mission, says director Fanconi. Piece of art has its life. It gets hurt. It gets damaged. It needs renewal. It needs to be talked about and paid attention to accept the restoration as well as exhibits. Advancing women artists has fulfilled its mission, says Falcone, and the organization has announced it's shutting down next June due to insufficient funds. But it's not a sign of failure, she says, because art lovers are now finding answers to the question. Where are the women? Sylvia Poggioli NPR news
The History of Lorenzo de' Medici
"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy v wilson and it's january first happy new year. Lorenzo de medici was born on the stay in fourteen forty nine. The medici family of florence was rich and powerful. They had come to florence sometime in the twelfth century although they had started out as just simple tuscan peasants but over a couple of hundred years they became incredibly wealthy and powerful by the middle of the fourteenth century. There were one of florence's leading families and they also had a reputation for being extremely adept at negotiating in the worlds of politics and money and this was through. Legitimate means as well as through things like bribery. Lorenzo domenici was described as the most medici of the medici. He was nicknamed lorenzo. The magnificent he's been described as the most powerful the most famous the most brilliant the most influential in the world of art thanks to his patronage and the most ruthless came to power in florence along with his brother in fourteen sixty nine after the death of their father and the two of them were ruling together and nine years later. There was a conspiracy to assassinate both of them and to take control of the republic of florence away from the medici. This was called the pazzi. Conspiracy the potsy and the medici were basically rival families within florence. One of the things that had led to this whole rivalry in the conspiracy was that the potsy family had taken over the financial affairs of the papacy and that was taking business away from the medici which the medici did not appreciate the ringleader in. This conspiracy was francesco. Potsy and he wasn't the patriarch of the pazzi family. But he was the one that was driving all of this. The fascination was finally set to take place during easter mass. in fourteen. seventy eight and lorenzo's brother giuliano was killed but lorenzo escaped afterward though. Lorenzo sought retro bution against olive his conspirators. There was a lot of hanging people throwing them out windows. A lot of dismemberments overall it was very gruesome and there were more than seventy executions of purported co-conspirators this whole incident though really shaped lorenzo's that his brother was dead so he was on his own in terms of his leadership at the republic and it had also gotten rid of a lot of actors and demonstrated the links that he would go to so after this whole conspiracy and the war that followed food. He had the support of a lot of the people of florence. He ruled almost as a monarch. Although lorenzo really liked to describe himself as just a highly respectable citizen anything special he and others in the family also acted as patrons to writers and artists and architects including people like botticelli and leonardo davinci among many others there was also of course michelangelo. Who was brought up partially in the medici household lorenzo domenici was also a collector of antiquities and of artwork. Basically what they were doing. They couldn't really afford to pay for the most extravagant biggest name artwork so they would find lesser known undiscovered talent of sort of cultivate them by their work for cheap. It's not however totally accurate to say that the medici family single paid for the renaissance. Sometimes they are described that way. Lorenzo was also a poet himself in addition to his patronage of other artists by the fourteen ninety s though lorenzo's health was declining the city of florence. Also becoming less and less enamored with the lifestyle that he had enabled and encouraged. This is a lifestyle that was just full of lavish festivals. in extravagance. He died at the age of only forty three. His son giovanni later became pope. Leo the tenth.
Argentines bid final farewell to Maradona as national mourning begins
"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty
Scale Your Data Science Teams With Machine Learning Operations Principles
"With the concept of machine learning and being able to use things like deep learning but there's also the term operational mel that has been floating around lately. And that's one of the things that you're focusing on with your company at tectonic and with your prior work on michelangelo at uber wondering if you can just start by describing what is encompassed by that term when somebody says operational emel having operational we think of it as you know. Machine learning built into production or customer facing application and refers to not just the machine learning algorithm but really the about treating the l. system is a complete operational data application and so a common distinction that can be helpful as this notion of analytic machine learning where a lot of use cases where mo exist in. The enterprise today is really for kind of internal consumption so you might have your analytical data sets in your warehouse and building machinery models that are used to power internal analyses deliver insights or even like internal off forecasts or something like that and really focused on powering kind of human decision making human actions. And that's really like analytical machine learning that we think of as quite different from operational machine learning that is really driving production automated decisions in action in your product. You know an example of this like fraud detection system real time pricing algorithm personalization system. You know product recommendations add bidding stuff like that and these operational machine. Learning systems tend to be battle-tested and fully production is the power use case that need decisions now not in a report next week kind of thing and tend to be really high stakes and affect the bottom line so there's syria software engineering projects that need a different level of care and production ization than like a standard mel project. You might work on kind of in the lab bird to do some one off analysis within a company. There's a fairly robust set of tooling available for traditional application delivery for somebody who wants to put a web app into production or be able to automate deployment of cloud resources. I'm wondering what the complications are. And the additional difficulties are for people who want to be able to bring these intensive applications and real time machine learning workloads into production and some of the complexities and challenges that exist on that path. There's a lot of differences but ultimately we should be using those tools right and the tricky thing is that people just aren't because these applications are not just code our writing. But they're artifacts from some data that we have so that's what model right it's artifact from running some code. On on some data but also live data pipelines the power these models and they need to be monitored in a different way when the production and so the kind of artifacts that were deploying to production are slightly different than standard software engineering projects. But secondly there's a a totally different like set of people who are involved. In different skill sets involved in building and deploying these projects we have sometimes analysts but very frequently data scientists who come from a very broad range of skill sets. Who are coming up with these models coming up at the features that power these models and the production ization process for these models but also the feature pipelines are. These models are like different the feature pipelines aspect of something that is worth calling out and i had another conversation with somebody on my other podcasts talking about some the concepts of feature engineering and feature stores and wondering if you could discuss a bit more about the level of importance of that capability for operationalizing machine learning and some of the ways that the definition of features impact the capability of the model particularly once it gets to production but for the teams who are trying to iterative on an experiment on building a model that is going to be useful for their particular goals to kind of recap features what are features. They are the signals in power. Your machine learning that are inputs to your machine learning models right so if i'm making Five a recommend our system you know an important feature might be has. This user purchased an item from this vertical before or something like that and so these signals are really like the critical pieces of input that power our machine learning models but also affect these machinery models. Performance and so feature engineering is the process of coming up with these signals. And then there's this element of putting these signals into production which is a completely separate challenge and so the concept of a feature store has risen and it kind of came from stuff that we developed at when we built the michelangelo platform. We came up with the notion of a feature store which is really kind of like a central hub for the definitions transformations and the data. That power these feature pipelines and all of the infrastructure to serve as features in production so that has become
"Come back to daily bread. Deepak Chopra these weeks. We have been uncovering hidden dimensions of life. I just wanted to remind you that. This whole daily bad series on secrets is actually drawn from my book. The book of Secret. So if you feel inclined you might want to get the book as well to reinforce your in descending this week we reach the core of our exploration this is that everything is pure essence so pure awareness pure consciousness. Essence is the ultimate mystery because it manages to do three things all at once. It conceives everything in existence. Imagine anything in existence I imagine a rainbow imagine sunset. Imagine the face of your mother or the sound of voice. Imagine listening to John Lennon. Imagine the song itself. How does it start you start? With the conception and intention an conception awareness modifies itself is the concept it turns wattage has imagined into reality. So you imagine creating a great Sculpture What Did he looks at the stone piece of rock a marble piece of marble and imagines David and that's how he starts. What is imagination is turned into reality? Any great piece of art starts like that. The Mona Lisa Michelangelo's Beautiful Sculpture Does but even scientific discoveries Einstein imagined that he was writing on the beam of light from there can the Tiriac relatively so imagination is stunned into reality and then it enters that reality and keeps it alive so essence our consciousness or awareness has conceived constructed imagined governed and then it becomes what we call reality because awareness is embedded in what it has imagined saved simply put I exist. I am an I create I exist. I am aware 'cause I am is the beginning of awareness and then from there on I conceive construct imagine govern and create these The three qualities I exist. I'm aware I create frequently referred to in Sanskrit Nanda South is truth of existence. This awareness on under the joy that comes from unlimited creativity
Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence
"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.
Raphael's tapestries return to the Sistine Chapel
"Finally on. Today's briefing few visitors to the Sistine Chapel of ever complained about a shortage of astonishing treasures but the Vatican's embarrassment of riches in this respect has just been significantly further engorged all. Twelve of Raphael's tapestries commissioned. Of course by Pope Leo the Tenth Have Been Hung on the Sistine Chapel's lower walls for the first time since Michelangelo was at work on the ceiling this is by way of commemoration of the five hundred th anniversary of Raphael's death. I'm joined now by Monaco Culture editor. Kiara a minute self-evidently. If this hasn't really happened for several hundred use kind of a big deal but but how big a deal is it. It is a very big deal. And when you think about the fact that this was how the Sistine Chapel was originally commissioned to be and how was intended to be as you say you know you'd be quite hard pressed to believe that there was more to go in there that the plan actually included extra ornamentation United States. Yes quite. I think it's worth the money of the ticket and but it was originally intended to the tapestry. Was were were commissioned so not to leave the the bottom half of the of the walls bear so speak and so It's it's really great to be able to finally see the vision that was originally intended for Sistine Chapel so for people who are fortunate enough to go and see these things. Do we entirely understand what they will be looking at? Yes so these are ten main tapestries into border tapestries. That were woven in Brussels to paintings originally by Raphael and they they are as usual. Kind of Obviously of of Religious subjects is moments of the life of Saint Peter and Paul and they are clearly very impressive. I think what's most interesting about all of this? Whole issue is that development clearly has so many of these treasures and it's a little bit of the paradox of of conservation that some of its most important treasures are the ones that see the light the least often because by nature of of them being so precious. They can't be shown to light very often. So these these tapestries will only actually be on display until the twenty third. And then they're gone again that will therefore one would think prompt cues round the block but my question is will many. Italians actually be in them because I growing up in cities in Australia for some big international artwork comes to town. It was a huge huge deal which is not to say a strenuous completely culturally impoverished but relative to Italy. You know what I'm saying. Do Italians get complacent about this? Italians are are you fellow. Italians reading stories of refugees. Half Millennia old tapestries. Whatever I think definitely we have a little bit more of a habit to We're just a little bit more accustomed to to renascent masterpieces. I do think that this is a particularly think interesting showing in that. There's also a bit of a quirky history to it in that. Michelangelo and Raphael were historically rivals and during the renaissance period. They were rivals for the pipes commissions. And so it's interesting to see. Michelangelo was really jealous. Rafael Rafael was younger and Raffle was basically Plagiarizing him and so. It was quite jealous that he did get the commissions for tapestries but then the ceilings of the stained chapel obviously make Michelangelo's suitably famous around the world to be able to think now of Rafael looking up the ceilings while Michelangelo was painting
The Care and Feeding of Data Scientists: Recruiting and Hiring Data Scientists
"Hey everyone instead of your regularly scheduled programing with myself a ban This week has special gas Michelangelo. Dr Casino he is the senior the senior director of the Shar vp by my former boss great the scientists ed he and I together Britain and a Riley report that covers a lot of the managerial aspects of do that we thought you would be interested in so Colangelo thank you for joining me again reporter so this week we will talk about how we think about recruiting and interviewing and hiring folks you're listening to a nearby Russians so a little bit sitting here so you have data scientists who you work for you say you're presumably involved or have been involved in recruiting interviewing hiring let's the team I think there's a director and seven folks but I think they're really well have been part is that I started here about two and a half years ago when there was no data science team at all so I I was hired to basically build the team from scratch and so that involved a whole lot of all all this stuff we're about to talk about it tell me a little bit about how you started to break apart into pieces yeah it was really interesting experience because because so as Katie mentioned we worked we worked together before at our previous company our company had its historical origins and the Obama Campaign in two thousand twelve and so we have a lot of like favorable publicity and I would say we didn't have to try very hard to recruit the people like we have a very active top of the funnel We're good luck candidates were just pouring in and so our main job is basically like sifting through those candidates to find the people that were really really good and then convincing them to come come work for us but it wasn't like a demand generation problem When I started here I had almost completely the opposite experience so we had no data science team in place we were known for data science the company as a whole was probably ably like forty or fifty people then there's probably two twenty five now so so we were small and we didn't have a huge name and so the top of our frontal it was like almost completely dry or like the things that were coming into the top of the phone or just sort of garbage and as an asylum topping here so you're gonNA company I do you can shop runner I that would probably be some useful usual context listeners to have yeah so I I started the data science team at shop are Chicago based e commerce company that kind of like to second elevator pitch of what we do that we run across retailer Amazon prime like service for obviously non Amazon Company so we have millions of members and over one hundred retailers are members get free today shipping and returns kind of across that network so my team works with can imagine there's a pretty interesting amount of behavioral data we can collect from across that network and so my team works on building data products on top of all that data cool so yes assembling from the business mental life pretty strong product but you're still Chicago is unhealthy data science teams but I wouldn't say it's the same order that you say that they are worker Boston or some think I think there is healthy competition for what talent is here in my experience so yeah so that's that's a little bit of the environment in which you've found yourself trying to start up this T- yeah the backdrop so actually it was interesting when I started at a shop owner we had just hired a new seat CEO and our headquarters was actually in the bay area and the CEO decided to close the bay area headquarters and move it to Chicago and his which I think is actually born out is that you you know in the bay area the the supply of great engineers great data scientists is quite high but if you're a small fish in a big market and you don't have a name or like you're you're you know you're not on the front page of the newspaper all the time or you're not something like super cool APP that people are using all the time it's very hard to attract really good talent and so his bat was that and we could come to Chicago and get some of the best people in Chicago and actually ended up being in a much better position I think that that's sort of born out but to go back to like the challenge which of hiring the team like a lot of the the issue is that people didn't know who we are and you put job postings out there and you create people how jobs already or they they're on the market for a very short period of time and they're probably just not applying to your job post and so how do you actually go out and recruit and find those most people and I think one of the we talk about a handful of strategies and the report but I essentially like I did two things one was like I drank in insane amounts of coffee like literally anyone that would that would talk to me or anyone that ever sent me an email I wanted to chat I would go and have coffee with them because I think like having network and trying to like build up those connections like matters a lot because I I can tell them a story about like revision about what the team is going to do in in the future that they don't get a job hosting necessarily even if I wrote the job host in Jackie jobless things this is Joplin and it's rare that I see one of the lake really captured I think what it would be like to work somewhere so I I get so much more of an impression flavor from actually the jobs I yeah absolutely so I like head coffees with anyone that would have copy of me I and then the other the other piece was kind of like investing a way to try to get our name out there I guess so one of the things we talked about in the report is like using open source as a tool in your arsenal so actually open source sort of like a silly Jupiter Notebook widget actually very early on in my time here but that got kind of noticed noticed a few places and has hundreds of hub stars and started to get our name out there a little bit and we wrote a couple blog post initially started going to more conferences invents and that actually like slowly started to pay off a little bit so the the first data scientists we hired someone who is I saw was giving a talk at of meet up and a local meet up in town and I sent her an email and I was like hey you're talk like super interesting like would you like to have coffee hiring you're interested and it happened that like she was on the market and she's kind of like ultimately ended up hiring her she was kind of like the foundation of team she's now a manager managing other folks on the team but like a funny thing we one of the other things we talk about the report is Mike is Diversity techniques for recruiting diverse team and and one of the things we mentioned is that large laundry lists of skills in a job posting tend to turn off women and minority candidates more than non women I'm and non minority candidates lots of reasons for that but sort of just a fact and this candidate in particular had seen job hosting and thought she wasn't qualified and didn't apply but then randomly I had center this email and we had coffee and then it turned out she applied and was like amazing so that was just sort of sort of a funny little side story all right but we hired her and then the other person who is our second data scientists with someone who just randomly reach out about coffee and it was like hey I'm dropping out of the PhD program and I'm curious what inch what opportunities are in Chicago we had coffee and ended up hiring her and then slowly kind of built from there her
Live from TWIMLcon! Use-Case Driven ML Platforms with Franziska Bell
"Kind of paraphrase your role a little bit want us is yes see lots of demand on that front and then the third dimension really is the res ability of the else and methodologies we apply again with forecasting a common framework that is needed to build forecasting algorithms is back testing framework understanding the accuracy of your forecasts and that really is needed for any step along the forecasting journey and so having comments central paralyzed language extensible back testing framework is something that's really important so your team out evangelizing the community platform is and looking for customers that are already working on things that meet these criteria or are folks coming to us hey we've got these problems help them how does the relationship with your ultimate customer evolve yeah absolutely so we have a lot of the product teams coming to us with use cases at the same time because we are this horizontal team that spans across the entire company across all lines of business we have a very unique point as well and so we can also gently nudge some of the product teams to come and join us in this journey as well okay and so when you identifies a problem space that it makes sense to platform is how do you approach that you just jump in and start building star coding or what is the methodology look like yeah that's a great question so the way we built platforms is a use case driven manner so that basically means that with every use case that is strategically chosen we oak meant a platform reuse as much capabilities as possible from the platform and that really allows us to have wins very early on and learning from this we actually now have a three phased approach to plot from his ation so step one is really consulting so we have these deep domain experts in particular us of data science on the team and so we embed them with particular areas of the business where we see opportunities of having use cases in these areas and so that has a couple of advantages firstly the domain experts learn more about the business about the opportunities the pain points and really can bring Doc these learnings to then drive the best design for these platforms it also allows us to tackle these use cases early on and really show insights and gain the trust of our partners and leadership on that front that of course is not a scalable approach this is why we set out to do platforms in the first place but it's a very good starting point and so the second thing that we usually do is template so what I mean by this is we build recipes whether it's form of documentation for example I python notebooks providing talks and educational aspects and this really allows us now to have one too many multiplicative effect ugh throughout the organization mostly to other data scientists that are dedicated to these business areas and then over time as we're taking on or more of these use cases we will expand our platform to become more and more self service and work towards that vision of really providing it at the push a button with out domain expertise required of course encoding best practices and guardrails in the process so in introducing you mentioned Michelangelo Uber's love a machine learning infrastructure platform over was one of the first companies to publish about what they were doing to automate machine learning I interpret your linked profile correctly you were at Uber doing applied machine learning platforms before at least before that article hit early before the Michelangelo effort even started what's the relationship between these two teams yeah we have a fantastic working relationship if Michelangelo as well as the Organization Engineering Branch that we also work with very closely to platform is and we have three modes of interaction here the first one is s ahead of plot from science I get pulled in into the strategic and vision setting when it comes to Michelangelo working closely with their engineering and product bleed so right from the start is really great collaborative relationship that we can build on and then we have to other modes that have evolved over time the first one as Michelangelo was more niece and deeply embedded folks from our teams into the Michelangelo Group so for example the customer obsession ticket assistant example that I mentioned earlier this was actually the first steep learning algorithm that ran on Michelangelo and so as you can imagine a lot of eighty features required for doing deep learning we're in a very nascent state at the time and so having data scientists working on this particular problem deeply embedded Colangelo group and working together with the engineers and product miniature stare to bill capabilities not only to solve the custom obsession ticket assistant as but also more generic aspects that then really benefited the community more at large to build deep learning algorithms and framework it was really important here
What Does the Statue of Liberty Stand For?
"It give us your tired your poor those lines etched on the statue of liberty by poet Emma Lazarus are part of our common understanding about what America is what it has stood for since its founding yesterday a top immigration official in the White House can Cuccinelli said he's quote certainly not prepared to take anything down off the statue of liberty but at the same time a new administration role will fundamentally change who gets to come to this country okay since when since when have we been the country that says Hey come here for free stuff Hey come here if you can't afford things in your country come here because we're going to give it to you for free since when now they will argue that that is the Emma Lazarus poem give us your tired your poor your huddled masses that is not what that palm means and we've talked about it before but it is important that you understand it so you can teach it to your friends they're never going to get it there's never there I have yet to see the anchor or anyone from the left that will honestly say you know what I was wrong I learned something I I see this in a different way I had a misunderstanding I have not seen that from the left I have seen that from the right we've done it on this program it's important if you don't do that you're not learning anything so the misunderstanding is it the statue of liberty the emphasis is always on she's the mother of exiles she's this mom and she's saying give us your poor your tired your huddled masses because we're a giant hospital that's not what she's saying that's not what America is what in what world including the world of Jesus Christ in what world does a messenger say Hey if you're really poor and you just can't make it and you wanna live off the fruits of somebody else come here come here in what world does that work in what world is that financially reasonable in what world is that spiritually reasonable that rushes people the statue of liberty is eight Allen she holds imprisoned lightning what is imprisoned lightning what does it mean her towards his cold imprisoned lightning isn't lightning is leading the way of a brighter tomorrow it's not just it's not a flame that claim that torture is imprisoned lightning imprison lightning talks is a direct reference to the to the discoveries of the age imprisoned lightning is another way of saying a light bulb it is the invention of the time that is moving things forward she is the mother of exiles but let's just look at her for a minute what is the crown it's not crown it's a misinterpretation have you ever seen the Michelangelo sculpture of of Moses that's sculpture of Moses it's sitting in Rome in a church it's beautiful sculpture but it is weird as hell because Moses has horns look it up he has two horns coming out of the side of his head you're like what it why this Moses ham horns because it's a misinterpretation of a word it is easily I can't remember the word but it is easily translated to horns but it is not horns it is a range of light so it's not a crown it is the light behind the statue of liberty she is standing as a guard in front of something that is all I don't know dear I say a shining city on the hill the light behind her is reflected in that crown that is a crown of rays of light and she is standing at our son said wash gates she is standing like the Colossus of Rhodes but the Colossus of Rhodes which was one of the wonders of the world the Colossus of Rhodes was holding a spear and a shield it was a warrior and the ships would go in between his legs and he would stand to add more roads this great old port and people would come in and that Colossus was saying don't screw with us it was meant as a warning but is it Emma Lazarus says here it our son said washing gate's stands the mother of exiles now the mother of exiles also has chains around her feet but they're broken chains they are broken chains not just as a reflection of of us breaking the chains of slavery in eighteen sixty five it's not just that it is breaking the chains of slavery because of pomp and circumstance circumstance and and and your heraldry it's it's breaking the chains of you can't do it because you're not a lord a lady landowner and what breaks those chains is what she's holding the law so if you understand the Emma Lazarus poem it is not it is not ever to be read this your poor your tired your huddled masses just send them here we're going to hold them that's not the way it is meant if you listen to the whole poem you'll understand not like the brazen giant of Greek fame with conquering limbs astride from land to land we are not conquerors every war have we conquered and we did we conquer Europe or did we conquer tyranny and given that land and that government back to the people we are not conquerors that take land so not like the brazen giant of Greek fame the Colossus of Rhodes with conquering lambs astride from land to land here at our C. washed sunset gate shall stand a mighty woman with a torch now does that sound like your mom she's not my eighty mom that is standing there with a pie or a mom who is standing there with a teddy bear and a blanket this is a mighty woman with a torch whose flame is the imprisoned lightning the ideas of tomorrow that are happening today and her name is the mother of exiles all that sweet from her vegan handed glows worldwide welcome her mild eyes command the air bridged harbor the Twin Cities frame those Twin Cities The New York harbor that's that's New York City in Brooklyn she's standing there in between the Twin Cities and she's welcoming people but how is she welcoming them with my old eyes that command command what commands that you listen to what she's saying your ancient glands in your store read on so in other words I don't care what your history is I don't care that you have lords and ladies I don't care that you went to the right college the right university you have the right papers your in the right guild you're in the union so you can do it I don't care keep all of that keep your ancient lands in your story pop crises she was silent lips give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free the wretched refuse of your teeming shore she's saying here I challenge you I challenge you send all the people that you say you can't do it please send me all of the people that you are holding down because they're just riffraff they're not the right people they'll never make it send those people to me send those people to me the homeless the Tempest tossed the people you don't want to send the garbage that you don't want why so I can hold them no because I lift my lamp beside the golden door the rays of light reflected from behind her the you see in the crown the rays of light she's standing behind or next to a golden door she is a guardian of that door there is something special on the other side of that door something behind her then a shining so bright send them here because the promise of what you can do I don't care who you are if you apply yourself you'll make it here that's what America is that's what the statue of liberty stands for not this bull crap of we're going to hold everybody who just can't make it and doesn't want to do anything for themselves and they just want to sponge off of us that is putting a chain around their legs and a chain and a ball around our children's necks that's not what the statue of liberty stands for she says she is the breaker of chains but she's only let you through the door you have to do
London's National Gallery plans major Artemisia Gentileschi show
"Returned to Artemis Magenta Leschi in two thousand eighteen the National Gallery in London announced that it had bought Genta Leschi self-portrait to sink Catherine of Alexandria that work has just been on a tour of unusual British venues from Glasgow Women's library to a doctor's surgery in Yorkshire a Catholic High School in Newcastle and a prison in send Surrey Tori is now back at the National Gallery ahead of a survey of gentlest work that opens at the Gallery in twenty twenty in January nineteen. I was joined by not at Travis the National Gallery's curator of later Italian Spanish and French seventeenth century paintings to talk about Artemisia and that remarkable new acquisition the teacher. Can you tell me I more we're about Artemisia. Gentle Leschi the woman and the artist. She's obviously a name now that many people have heard of not just people sort of in the art world or interested in art and I'd I'd say that's quite a recent occurrence <hes>. She was really sort of rediscovered in a way <hes> in the nineteen seventies. She featured an exhibition in L._A.. On women artists artists and a number of her works exhibited then and so she sort of came to the fore then and number of feminist historians focused on her and her work <hes> throughout the latter part of the twentieth century but it's only really since she started being the subject of shows monographic show in two thousand and one in New York and then more recent exhibitions that I think she really came to wider public. I think now she is not necessarily a household name but I think people have heard of her a third of her as an artist but also her life story and I think a lot of the interest around her sort of people's view of her as a kind of empowered women derives from her biography rather like carbohydrate zone biographical stories somewhat somewhat sort of overshadows the art but I think Artemis as an artist now is coming to the fore and I think that's I'm looking forward to working on this show in two hundred twenty because I think it's very much focusing on her. As a painter ops you can't ignore what was happening in her life and the big events that the that obviously influenced that's how life in Harare but it is very much artistic abilities. Can you tell us something of that biography then before we get into into the to the painting the nationals occurred. Uh ultimately has seen very much as a sort of exception. I think it's important say she was quite exceptional that she wasn't the only woman autism the seventeenth century. I mean there had been other successful artists before her. Aha but she was born in Rome to Aratu gentlest who was a well established painter in Rome and a lady prudence and Artemis mother died when she was just twelve so she was actually brought up in a male household so brutal by her father and she had three brothers she was in fact one of five to two died <hes> and the brothers and Artemis rule trained by rats here in his own workshop but it's clear that she was the one that he saw had greater talent than than the brothers <hes> and a and sort of everything changed when she was raped by Agostino. Tassie Passy was <hes> an extremely successful painter of SORTA Trompe l'oeil architecture and who was working at that time without C._E._o.. On a large project the casino limousine he was brought in to teach Artemisia Perspective and he raped her <hes> and they Taylor have sexual relations for some months and then he was brought to trial buyouts and this is very famous as perhaps the most famous episode in Artemis Life because remarkably all the trial documents actually survivor a large portion of survive so you can actually read optimizes own words in the witness box and you read the accusations against us. It's quite extraordinary to have that kind of sort of documentary evidence still survive from the seventeenth century and he's effectively found guilty of de flowering her because what what is bringing against Casey is the fact that not only did he rape his daughter but he didn't do the honorable thing and marry her afterwards and this is sort of idea the lack of honor the the so dishonor on his family. That's very much motivating the trial so he's found guilty although his punishments never enforced and Artemis married off two days as later to the brother of her defense lawyer and with him moves to Florence and obviously this episode was obviously a great tragedy in her life when she describes in in her own words is really violent attack on her. It is quite harrowing but I think if that had never happened. Her life would have been very different. She would have carried John. Working probably in her father's studio in Rome but as a result herbs sort of enforced moved Florence really was the making of her and it's incredible things that how she turned the situation around and really I mean I like to think in Florence. You really became Artemisia. She found her own sort of autistic voice and it's why she really gained independence in Florence and she's there for about seven years and then she comes back to Rome very different sort of person she's very much in demand very successful and we know this from letters says from her husband that survived saying you know they've got cardinals and princes around the house all the time. She after music doesn't even have time to eat. She's so busy and then in sixteen thirty she settles also in Naples where she lives till the end of her life at least sort of twenty five years and runs a very successful workshop. I says you pretty much stays in Italy except for a brief trip to London in the late. Sixteenth extent thirties which in itself is quite unusual for women to be traveling internationally. Elaine indeed just one thing about the biography that makes her have a certain currency. Today is as you say in those documents around the trial. It's clear that she is being put on trial. In the trial and and in fact is is is tortured a- as as part of that process I mean laws be made of that and I think there's been a very much more measured reading of those documents in a wider sort of frame. If you like particularly particularly <hes> one social historian Elizabeth Cohen quite a lot of work on actually the documents relating to the trials of young virgins in Roman that period and it seems as a sort of standard way of leading these trials and actually it falls quite within that I wouldn't call it a pattern but within that but if you really read carefully the words mean she was tortured by using the which were these ropes tightened around her fingers while she was in the box but the judge also beforehand is it will right if we do this and it's clear if if you really read the the original Italian it is clear that it's in a way that they're asking if they can torch her to in a way prove her innocence in a sense sort of <hes> just to make sure that what she's saying is actually true and and it is while she's the torturing her with a C._B._S.. That she says you know it's true. It's true it's true. She repeats the what she says is true and so I think in a way it was sort of in supportive her innocence in this situation. I think you can already read in the language. That's used that. It's in a way away to catch tassie out right now. The the making of her in artistically say was was her moved to Florence say something about her experience there what kind coin of Education for instance did she did. She have there and will she in another painter studio straight away. No I think the really remarkable thing is that she sets up independently. She was trained in her father's studio. You know these sort of kind of family workshop tradition existed since the Renaissance and not just in Italy but it was often a father to Assan workshop so it's quite new female members of the family would be involved but as I say after means is not the first loving Fontana. Her father was very successful. So do you know in a way has sort of training. Rome wasn't unusual as perhaps be unusual because she was a woman but the whole learning from your father your trade from your father wasn't unusual the fact of her moving moving to Florence and having to set up independently is the thing that really made her. I think we have no real indication of having a student with with pupils assault. She worked effectively from her has junior. It wasn't her home. Her husband was apparently a painter but very sort of modest kind of renown. She was the very first female MEL member of the Academy in Florence. She was member from sixteen sixteen so you know she. She arrived in around sixteen thirteen within two three years. She's already really established herself. That's a really shows incredible determination but also kind of recognition of her skill and I think it's partly to do with her resilience. I think it will start to do with who she came into contact with in Florence. Not you say how education but also the circles. She moved in one of her great sort of protect us. There was Michelangelo Buonarroti younger who is the great nephew of Great Michelangelo and Artemis is only documented picture in Florence is in the ceiling of one hundred thirty still today and there she is alongside other Florentine artists of her of her time so she seems to have integrators of quite quickly and Florence <hes> and one of her close friends was Christopher. No Laurie won the greatest painters in the seventeenth century in Florence who is also godfather to her son Christopher so she clearly immediately set us you know sort of entered into autistic circles intellectual circles because she was a friend of Galileo and she worked for the MEDICI and did did she carry her Caravan Jasko style that she would have learned in Rome with her two phones or did she very much incorporate new styles and influences from her surrounding same sex. It's such a hot topic. That's so discussed because she has been called a chameleon and and I think as a result of this now many pictures get attributed to her that aren't necessarily by her because you can still use it as a dolphin well. She's communiqu. She changes all the time I think in the kind of broad sense she is quite community. She can adopt US style but it's part of her sort of business strategy. I think so you know she spent twenty five years. Working in Naples pictures look look really neapolitan but of course they would. She's been living in Naples. She's working for Nipples and patrons and I think when she moved to Florence. I think actually more than Caravaggio it is her father is rats. Here's pictures and rats. Here's handling of paint that's most of present in her mind and in the picture the the National Gary bought <hes> <hes> you know the thing that became very clear as as the pitcher was being cleaned as just that technically the way she paints the flash and so on. It's very ratu still very present in her mind. I think we'll sure influences. She's looking at these Florida artists. She's frequenting. She's using Carter analogy that you see in Florentine painting at that time she's also painting pictures for Medici tastes so that it also makes sense but when she comes back to Rome in sixteen twenty that's when Carava Chisholm off to Caravaggio is death ten years after is when cartridges is really the height of its popularity and I think there is definitely a renewed interest in this heightened naturalism start lighting and you can see that in the pictures of the sixteen twenty s can can you say more about the circumstances in which he would have created the specific work which the national now has well. The conservations been really interesting because you know I think a lot of living has been spilt on Artemis but not a huge amount of being written about her technique and I think this is actually played such an important role in actually understanding after media. It's been a lot written about you know dating's and attributions and also sort of the Mall gender-specific interpretation of her pictures in the iconography but I think had technique is absolutely fundamental understanding astounding to me. It's not Jason. Weeding out the pictures that aren't by her that are currently sort of sitting in this sort of limbo so during the conservation the National Gallery painting. We noticed similarities with obviously rats. Here's painting technique we notice differences. The pictures very closely related to two paintings one. That's in Hartford <hes> Connecticut at the Wadsworth which shows is a self portrait of her playing the lute and the other is a sin Catherine in New Jersey and the the suit of similarity between these pictures is not just sort of superficial fullness similarities but she's taken direct borrowings from one and the other. This is almost kind of amalgamation of these two other pictures which she knows sheds. It's light on her practice. You know how did she did. She transfer these designs to choose tracings. I mean we know how far the rats here uses tracings a lot <hes> did she have these three pictures which is in the studio once <hes> did the pro sort of composition evolve in the national painting. Does she know exactly what she was doing. From the very beginning I mean there are certain technical aspects of the pitcher the suggest it did evolve into Katherine. I'm perhaps didn't start its life as Catherine so I'm very interested also in how she uses her own image so the picture in halt that is clearly a self portrait very characterized face and all is a little bit idealized and I think there's been too much discussion in the post about whether picture easel isn't a self reporter. I think there's a kind of disguise self portraiture in a lot of her works where <hes> she would clear have expected people to kind of vaguely recognize her features a note. It was painting by women of a woman who looked like Artemisia but it doesn't necessarily have to be a self Putin a very literal sense. I think that's that's a really interesting aspect isn't it because how much of it is in that is almost like an advocate for for her capabilities and also for for her personality for her strength or strength of character and it's very easy easy to read biography into it isn't it because it's such a striking image and we know about this history of hers. Yes I mean I've had inquiries from the public. Since we announced the acquisition was saying you know other you know signs of torture on her fingers.
