The shootings occurred late Saturday night when least four gunmen opened fire in the midst of a large public cookout in the southeastern Washington neighborhood of Greenway. Police chief Peter Newsom on the situation. Preliminary investigation has revealed that over 100 rounds were fired on the scene of the shooting. There were multiple shooters who fired simultaneously. We believe that there were at least four and maybe more shares who all shot at the same time. The victims in the case that the mayor has magic is there were 22 total victims, including Christopher, who was killed. Tony. One of the 22 were adult. Um, I am convinced that there is images of the shooters. In this case. I am absolutely convinced that there is someone out there who has information who was responsible for this. I am very concerned that a gathering of that size I was able to accumulate without our managers over distance festered being able to permanent so we will take a look as to whether that could have been handling away. Among the wounded.

Students for Life activists arrested for defacing Black Lives Matter mural
"Joining us right now, Kristen Hawkins, who is president of students for life. Of America and Kristin to ofyour activists were arrested this past weekend. Right here in Washington. D C. Good morning. Why were they arrested? Good morning. Thanks for having me today. Yeah, we What? Out Saturday. It was national pro life generation sidewalks. So we had students across the country going to Planned Parenthood. Another abortion, silly, praying counsel women. Our team went out there to paint the street to say black, pre born lives matter. We had written the mayor sensor there had painted the streets of the seed black lives matter and allow the group of asked for this. Add on her paintings to say deep on the police, and she allowed him to do that, with how the formal on to do with permanently we had written, the mayor asked her to allow us the same light as she allowed the other activists. We have spoken with them done on that perm it the police called us NASA's issues. Temporary paint, which we complied with. We've got out there for him on Saturday and had six squad cars waiting for threatening the rest. If you are To attempt to put anything on the street. So being activists we have a backup plan it sidewalk chalk with us. We do this all the time. One of our team members Warner, who actually counted upon the pregnancy there every Saturday and sidewalk chalk every single Saturday. Began to sidewalk chalk, black reborn lives matter in front of the planned Parenthood on the sidewalk. Not on the street. Ah, one with one eye open university, Erica Catelyn, and the police arrested them for simply sidewalk, chalking and I want to make sure I understand this correctly. You did ask for a Permit. It sounds like it was granted you then here to what they told you to do, which is used temporary paint, and it sounds based on you applying for that permit that the police knew in advance when you were going to be there, And when you plan to paint this is that how they knew you were going to be there and with it already predetermined. Do you think by the police that they plan to arrest you? If you did anything to the sidewalk, including writing black black lives matter, even if it was done in shock. Umm Yeah, we had written their advance of getting the permit telling her, you know, we we know you have opened the streets up now to public expression. You can't discriminate based on you know what messages painted in the streets. We would like you to extend us the same rights and we gave her deadline and we said we're going to be out there Saturday. All his first and father planned parent heart. If you do not respond, we will take that as acceptance that you know what we're doing. And in fact, her office the mayor's office, I contacted D C special events office who then contacted our team. We got a permit to assemble because you have to have a permit. We had to have a committee. Cirio assemble. 50 people are under wearing masks, social distancing. We've got that permit. The police officers called us asked us to please use temporary paint, which we complied with. But that's how they knew where we could be out there on and we got pretty loud and clear the mayor's answers when she had six Claude cars leading for us, and when we asked the police officers on the scene You know who they were Reporting to who? Their boss wise thie officer in charge directly responded the mayor. Amazing. Amazing, So they just used your attempts to be good citizens as in as a road map to find you and then to eventually arrest your activists in all of this, Kristen, you know, One thing that really sticks out to me is the disparate treatment that your group has received, as when it comes to free expression in the district. So you mentioned it before. But it bears repeating right next to the mural that Miria ll Bowser authorized, which was defunded mystery, which was black Lives matter. She's put it right in front of the White House in giant letters, activist Black lives matter. Activists came in and added, defund the police of their own accord. They they did that without a permit. They just put it right next to the black lives matter, and they put it in permanent paint on the ground immediately in front of the White House. Rather than punish those people. Miriam Bastard gave them the OK after it was over. Those words are still painted on the ground right now in front of the White House and have been for the last month or two. Meanwhile, you're activists used shock on the sidewalk and were arrested. It's starting to sound like you have grounds for a lawsuit. Are you going to file one? Absolutely. This is clear viewpoint discrimination. Our team has been flooded with requests for legal aid groups have been coming in saying We will help you sue the city because this is a slam dunk. Constitutional First Amendment case, and we believe it is so we we have our own in house legal counsel that we work with. We were hiring criminal defense attorneys for morning Erica the two individuals who were arrested for sidewalk talking, and then we're also bringing on a team of lawyers who will be handling our First Amendment federal lawsuit against the city and the mayor. And Chris and I also want to ask about the message that you were sending out the message that was chalked, which is Moon black. Pre boy born lives matter. How has that message been received by people when you point out the fact that so many black Children are aborted in our country that I mean that's what's so sad. If you think about this case, while Warner and Erica are being arrested and being processed and book to Metro police Planned Parenthood on Saturday across the nation ended alive of 360 black Children. That is what they dio every single day for out of five Planned Parenthood locations are in walking distance from minority dense population. The abortion rate for black women is five times higher than white women. It is very clear that not only does planned Parenthood and now their own employees are admitting that Planned Parenthood has a racist past with their founder, Margaret Sanger, who was a genesis to believe that birth control and sterilization was a solution to a limiting what people she called human leads, but they also have a racist. Present and it needs to be addressed right now. This is an important conversation happening within our nation, and we want to add to that conversation would say absolutely black lives matter. The one you say black lives matter. We also mean lives that had not only been born, but lives are in the wounds are freeborn minds their lives that are about to be born, you know, or Children that are about to be born. You've got Kanye West in recent days talking about this is well, he tweeted just a couple days ago. Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years. I'm not sure of his numbers are right, but he definitely is getting to a real issue on DH. He also tweeted I cried at the thought of a boarding my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me. I'm concerned for the world that feels you shouldn't cry about this subject. What's your reaction to seeing Kanye West to come along and say, Yeah, this is a real issue. Yeah. I mean, I think this is a very raw and emotional issue for so many Americans. I think it is so sad to see. So I watched, you know, Campaign speech in South Carolina. He broke down, crying, talking about how he himself was almost aborted by his mother on then how this discussion happened with his firstborn child, whether or not to abort her and end her life. I think that resonated with millions of Americans. I mean, I meet people all the time you say I was on the operating table and I gotta walk out. I don't know why I do I You know, I didn't have the money. I was scared to death. But I just knew I couldn't have the abortion. And no day goes by that. I'm not grateful for making that. Choice for life, so I think what it was so well. It was so emotional. I think it regulated with so many Americans. Why do you think it's very sad? I was really something in Hollywood. You know articles about what car long with Connie West? Yes, Conquest is crazy and one I think we need to be very careful about how we label people crazy. This mental health in a very real concern in our names, and we shouldn't be labeling people who may have been, you know. Late diagnosis by Paul Alors crazy and it's okay. And it's okay to admit that some people have it. Thank you, Cristian. Sorry. Just cause we're out of time. But it is okay to stay. Some people have it right on some issues and wrong on others. He's completely right on the issue of
Meggan Watterson | Christs First Apostle and Her Gospel of Love
"Hi Megan, welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Thank you, thank you for having me. Yeah. I'm really excited to to speak to you about. Of Topics today that includes your meditation and condemned practices. the life of Mary Magdalene in Christ. Women in early Christianity, and as you write in your book the Christianity we haven't yet tried. We haven't tried yet, yes. I think it might be instructive for our listeners for us to situate our conversation. By talking about the person of Mary Magdalene so, can you tell us who Mary Magwar mangled was? What was her relationship to Christ? Well, I love to start that conversation with. A clarification, which is that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. 'cause most people. That's how they have come across our. That's how they've been told about her is that she is the penitent prostitute, the woman who sinned much and was forgiven much So this. was a story of fictitious story created about her around the sixth century it within the Catholic tradition and the Catholic Church has actually. wrote a formal apology in the nineteen seventies and have corrected that misunderstanding of her and then Pope Francis recently rehabilitation sort of rehabilitate. That's the word he rehabilitated her. And she is now officially the apostle to the apostles, and that to me is very significant, not because there is anything ever. It's not that there's anything innately derogatory about sex in the body or you know. Anything having to do with that it the reason why to me it's so significant and important is because it begins to us closer to the truth of who she really was. Which which is the person Christ resurrected to? Right, she was his witness. She was there at the Tomb, not by accident not. Happen to just be in the right place at the right time if we include her Gospel among the other gospels that were co defied in the fourth century, if we if we reintroduce her gospel as just as significant just as worthy of taxed and scripture it. It speaks to Christianity, that included her included her in authority clued included her partnership with Christ, and that's really how I would describe and define them regardless of whether you ever go the sort of Davinci code rabbit hole of Were they married and. Did they have a physical relationship. They have a physical relationship. Physical Child You. We don't even need to go there at this point right now. It's so significant to identify and what we can know. empirically is that they were companions. They were partners and we know that from the. We know that even just from the New Testament exactly that we add these other Gospel, so can you help so for those of us? Who aren't scholars of the Bible or theologians? Can you help situate us? Okay? We have the the new. Testament that actually speaks about Mary Magdalene. Just spoke about that. She was present at at the resurrection, and she was the first person who Christ spoke to right after. They have that. We have that like an that. When I was raised Catholic that was the story was a prostitute who he was speaking to that what I was told. These whole other said of writings of Gospels that were around. There wasn't a codified Christianity after Christ right there were. Complaint Forms of writing. Right. Can you help us understand that? Yeah, I get really excited, sorry. When we talk about this early form of Christianity before it was could have at. It wasn't cofide until the fourth century. So that's important to understand so there are hundreds of years where there's a Christianity that's being practiced that so radical and threatening to the Roman Empire and the idea of. Existence being ranked according to a hierarchy so educated Roman born men are at the top, and then it. There's all different layers in positions of power but women. Prostitutes slaves would be down there at the bottom meaning, having no rights, and not having a sense of. Being able to have autonomy and voice and power themselves so Mary Magdalene would. Be Way down there at the bottom, not because she was a prostitute because she was a woman, women didn't have any rights or own property so. This form this early form of Christianity. If we re introduced scripture like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene like the Gospel of Philip, which names Mary as Kreis companion. The Greek word is Kono's, and that word can be translated as partner, beloved or companion, so the gospel of Philip names. Miriam of Magdala Mary Magdalene as the companion of Christ

You might know her by the Moniker Robinhood we're going to get into that. But Mirim how you doing? How you feeling? Man You know just just pushing it day by day. Are you doing with all the stay at home? And all this other craziness? We got going on Oh man I'm just trying to stay productive in proactive to be honest so I've been trying to just make the most of my time you know. Yeah which are very versatile I. Just I think that is huge especially in the time period that we're in in the first thing I want to talk about. Is the lyricist artist in you, so tell me where Robin Hood came from like. How did you get into music? Wow, you know is so crazy! I actually started writing. In two thousand thirteen once I had killed. Yeah. I came graduate school I went to Yale to get my masters acting and so basically when I came of Graduate School I had a lot of time on my hands. however I was working on a show called Richard the second excuse me Richard to third at the Public And? Basically you know if you're not familiar with the public as off Broadway theatre in New York and I was cast in the show, and I just had a lot of time on my hands, and so I started to download like a lot of. Really popular industry instrumentals, and so there's a lot of artists out there that I just really appreciate and respect, so you know I was downloading like beats that Swiss beats had done for like jd kiss and whole and be here because I had this time on my hands, and I was working on a Shakespeare show. It was like I don't know. The bar turned into bars like I just. Started writing one line were turned into two lines, and then that would turn into verse and then basically. I just started writing like my first mix tape, which was journey of an MC, and that's really how Robin Hood was birth, you know I would back and forth trying to figure out like the right name, and what would make the most sense you know to my community, but really for myself. I just wanted something that represented who I am and who? I'm really focused on trying to be. How I'm trying to uplift my community, so that's really kind of came from and I had to change the I two a y. you know funded up a little bit. Yep. That's right and I. I grew up in Philadelphia so I. I grew up in the hood. You know so. My thing has always been like taking the poverty going from poverty to prestige. Growing up in Philadelphia in some of the roughest areas, just being an impoverished community, and then being able to go all the way to an Ivy League institution, so. I learned a lot. In that timeframe you know, and so I just wanted to bring that to the music in India better. To uplift inspire, so you know that's where we are. Well, you know. You definitely did not to draw any comparisons to you guys, but one of my one of my favorite artists is eve. And say. Right and I liked the way and see what I liked about your music to of because go you know filling ham villa some of these days I, like I'm pumping yours now on apple music by the way you guys can get on Apple Music and soundcloud and we'll talk about different projects in a minute. But the RAW news that you having your lyrics just to be exposed to me I find your unique about hip hop in artists like yourself that are not afraid to go there listen. Trying to keep my heart, yeah! I was just very very daring at. You're willing to do that. Yeah I mean like in my my most recent. EP which is called Truth Teller I have a song called hip hop is honest, and if you listen to the hood, that will yeah, yeah, so the hook is hip. Hop is honest. Speak, the truth detects never need invalidate the bar. Say Next so basically. You know just a little bit. But that that it's really about being honest, and I had this thing that I say which is, keep it hot and is that means honest, open truthful. And so those are just little principles that you can take into your relationship, you know if you have a significant other or just your relationships with family friends you with yourself is just being honest and open and truthful about how we go about our day and for me, because music is such a huge part of it, it's like how can I not keep it real with my bars? You know I had to keep it real with everything else. You know like what the acting. If you see a scene that I'm in or film that I'm in, and it's not honest. You know off the bed. You know so.

Right and I liked the way and see what I liked about your music to of because go you know filling ham villa some of these days I, like I'm pumping yours now on apple music by the way you guys can get on Apple Music and soundcloud and we'll talk about different projects in a minute. But the RAW news that you having your lyrics just to be exposed to me I find your unique about hip hop in artists like yourself that are not afraid to go there listen. Trying to keep my heart, yeah! I was just very very daring at. You're willing to do that. Yeah I mean like in my my most recent. EP which is called Truth Teller I have a song called hip hop is honest, and if you listen to the hood, that will yeah, yeah, so the hook is hip. Hop is honest. Speak, the truth detects never need invalidate the bar. Say Next so basically. You know just a little bit. But that that it's really about being honest, and I had this thing that I say which is, keep it hot and is that means honest, open truthful. And so those are just little principles that you can take into your relationship, you know if you have a significant other or just your relationships with family friends you with yourself is just being honest and open and truthful about how we go about our day and for me, because music is such a huge part of it, it's like how can I not keep it real with my bars? You know I had to keep it real with everything else. You know like what the acting. If you see a scene that I'm in or film that I'm in, and it's not honest. You know off the bed. You know so. Yeah, that's true.

"Terrible things that had been done the Palestinians by the seconds principally. We should share that land with the Palestinians. They were there same time as we married that with their first. And have blaming them for the shocking deeds of the Nazis for those who would say, well, we are a millennium old religious community and the original. Founding faith that in a way birthed Christianity and Islam and so is it so much to ask that we be allowed to have that territory and protect it against these other nations that may not wish us the best at all very well. Deaths one small thing people lived there before them who owned those houses until those fields and to whom that land belonged. And can't just turf them out the country has to be shared and it will not be a Jewish state anymore but it will be a state where people can live together in peace and I think that that is infinitely preferable. But that's you know it can make people behave badly people get very exercised about this. Doesn't it speak to this idea which you mentioned antisemitism in England or in the UK and there's a sense of almost existential insecurity. The Jewish people feel you know the idea that a population can turn on the born out in some ways by history you know across Europe and that's expressed as a source of failing Jewish people need a space where they can count on one another to protect one another and no longer be victims I think that is probably how a lot of people think. You see in some senses Hitler did win because he changed us all all last Jews have been changed forever. My life has been totally scarred by the Holocaust. I did not suffer personally in nor did my parents nor did any close relatives of violence Nonetheless, the fact of the Holocaust has been a shadow, a tearing shadow across my entire life. And I think nearly all Jews would say that every time I go to train and free time I have Shah which is every day I think about those people am I am told with horror and the PT for them and that makes me more determined that I will never visit such horace. another human being. Do, you think there's anything in the idea that Israel's held to a higher standard. This is something you hear you know that China or Syria are spoken about less than Israel. Yes I do think that is so I think we're an easy target. Sometimes, my printer has a life of its own and suddenly. Does something is it excreting something? It is not if it were I, would hold myself responsible. But it is just recalibrating I think. which is something that maybe we should all do for. It would be nice if we could upgrade our software. Yes update I need one of those. Wife a message saying nearly done. She getting set up she said you finished with two question monks. Kiss. giveaway. Also worry. If the. Senator Kiss for me and see if that frightens am I think that it is. That Israel comes in for more. Than possibly countries like Iraq Syria the Saudi Arabia Snowed Arabia China China. Because there are places and regimes which deserve a opprobrium to the same extent that Israel dozen don't get it and that's because there is something secretly pleasing about oppressing Jews and Jews to be awful and people take pleasure in it. I could talk more about that, but I don't want to weary. Off. My Wife. We started a bit well I started a bit trivial. My mind was in the gutter, which is a place it was I was disappointed in you for that. I am an Old Lady I am you know a year and a half eighty? And I don't want to be thinking about my come to the time I wanNA think higher thoughts and you dragged down I did plead guilty and I apologize. But at the same time, it was of a piece with a thesis sitting out to do with the gift you have for sort of incisive and solitary outrageousness. But that being the case, let's leave that behind us. It seems like a long time ago now with. Poll and Catherine back into the conversation. Yes I'm. Still there have we covered the subjects that you'll be able to make a program with that's.

"Please say yes, needle is moving beautifully. Sprint how you feeling how's your? Energies. All right. I'm just feeling a little bit concerned that we haven't moved about the waste. Let's move of the waste. Elevate the conversation a little bit I mean is this conversation that I'm supposed to be interviewing you or your spurts Supposed to be interviewing. Okay. If that hasn't become clear by now that I may be doing it a bit wrong. Think, it's about time I asserted my authority after old you're listening to ground it with Louis through and not Miriam Margulis. She is my guest. Anyway we probably should elevate the compensation above the waist not least because I was keen to learn more about how her career flourished off. She left university. What happened when she moved to. London. When I left Cambridge in sixty three I didn't know what to do I. Didn't know whether I was going to be an actress so not. And I sold encyclopedias for a few months and I did mock it research going from door to door asking questions and then I got an audition with BBC radio and that really started me isn't actress you've done some acting at Cambridge is that you would part of the famous footlights. It was horrible. I. Hated named night. They didn't like me. They thought I was pushy Jew and I will say got off of the laughs that they felt that I shouldn't got 'cause I was funny. And so I sent which meant that they didn't talk to me off the stage. So I would do my bits and then I would come off stage to be met with silence code stairs and it had a lot but I got over it. It was an Auburn Generous deeply competitive group of people who would not use to having women amongst them because it was before you could loan to the foot sites so I was. Never. A member of the types you were on sufferings invited to join the evenings amd, my dislike of that whole world has never left me I mean it's a bit pathetic because honestly it's fifty sixty years ago I should have gone over it. I should've at I haven't when you say you had a dislike of the whole world which continues to this day which world do you mean I think I mean the world of Comedy which at that time was largely male and it was competitive just horribly competitive. And I didn't really like that much like people to be social gentle with each other. So you derived in London, how did you get your break? How did you move into acting in? How easily did success come? Not sure success has come even now but I think it all began because I loved radio I listen to radio as a kid always and when I was at Cambridge. A BBC radio produced John Bridges came, and watched the footlights and gave me his card and he said when you leave, Cambridge contact me because I think very talented and I'll trying to help you with an audition and saying, I left Cambridge off to two years gone by and I'd sold encyclopedias and done very little else. I thought I'll contact that chat John Bridges, which I did. And he was incredibly kind arranged an audition for me with the BBC Referee Company and I got through the audition and they offered me apart and then a few months later they offered me an engagement for a year with the BBC Radio Drama Rafferty Company, which is about four people. There was a lot more radio drama that under is now and I worked with wonderful people you John Osborne and Jill Bennett tire member Wilfred pickles. Donald. Wolf it. Patricia Rutledge, and Paul Scofield I mean the wonderful people don't fit famous. Shakespearean. Actor Paul Scofield obviously gifted brilliant. Who was the other one? You mentioned that I hadn't heard of Wilfred Pickles Wilfred pickles I'm not sure who that is. Well, he was a radio star and he had a show called go with Mabel at the table and Harry Hudson at the piano he used to interview just ordinary people going around England but he was a very good actor as well and I loved radio and I still love I, still do quite a lot of radio. It's. It's a source of huge pleasure to me. was there a moment when you feel your career took off or has your career as you see, it been a slow crescendo in terms of exposure and work maybe A. Crescendo. had. An extremely, extremely slow crescendo. I think possibly when I did the girls of slender means which was sometime in the seventies and Clive James God rest his soul gave me a wonderful review. That was a good moment and then I did my own show much later in the eighties with Sonia Phrase Cool Dickens, women it was very successful and I think it's still some of the best work I've ever done I did twenty three characters from Dickens I told the story of his life using the characters because they were based on real people in his life was not your idea to do the Dickens. That was my idea because I studied the Kittens Newnham and I've always found him to be the most exciting and my life. What is it about Dickens vol literary figures that speaks to you so much? I think he's remarkable. For the excellence of his prose the. External River. Riot his characters because he created over two thousand and the passion with which he lived his life. So that, in the living, the life is the magic of the man and he was able to transmute that into the novel's.

That is what I enjoy and when I'm castle from people as I have to be at the amendment I didn't do very well I read I watch television lock I think a bit but I wouldn't say that I'm having a very good time. I'm very sorry to hear that and I think probably you speak for a boss portion of the population globally many of them on the older side invulnerable who often very lonely and then there's another portion who liked me feel? Sort of out manned by their children by the commitments and a struggling to find a span moment these two ends of the spectrum, the under busy and the over busy. Yes. It is unprecedented for all of us of course, and I'm disappointed in myself to be so wimpy about things I would love to get up and go I can handle anything but actually I come I need my cleaning lady I, need my secretary. I do see from a distance, my gardner who comes to make the got nice at the front and the back, and that contact is very important to me but I'm disappointed in myself I thought I had. I was more substantial but I'm not I have to admit that I'm an insubstantial thing. I think we're all struggling in different ways. Most of the time I feel I'm doing. Okay. Little moments of feeling. Living in a family you're with people I'm not I haven't totally alone. And I'm nearly seventy nine. And I'm not good at housework. I don't Cook I talk and I read and that's about all I can do my driver who might correspond with on facebook on. He's made a bird bath well, I mean, I could do that my partner in Holland she's making Britt she's cooking. Well I can't do that I'm not a cook I can microwave beautifully but icon coke. And I'm frightened I'm frightened of dying. Less frightened than I used to be but I'm frightened of dying with this illness because it's really unpleasant. It's scary. I'm scared. So I'm really not having a good time I'm very sorry to hear that's. One thing I should quickly say though is you're not with your. Your other half what term do you prefer partner? I've heard you use I think partner is easier. We we've talked about it a lot, my partner and I she doesn't particularly want to be named. But one of the things we don't like his wife, we are not married we are civilly partnered. I would never call him I. Still Partner that's just two camp were. With that. Am I right in thinking, you don't typically live together most of the time you are at a distance physically we didn't live together. She is an academic writing a book on Southeast. Asia says, she lives in Holland where the archives are in a beautiful house. which he built many years ago overlooking the fucked. So have front room looks over the canal and it's beautiful. It's Seventeenth Century Hours. And she visits me for conjugal visits as often as possible and I do the same. But I'm a busy woman to I don't get a chance to go for as much as I'd like. And I was trying to remember the last time I saw her was actually when we went to Dublin. Little holiday I was going to appear on talk show old late late show which I love I love into island. So she came to Ireland and we had a few days in Ireland. As it happened a very prominent journalist, Marian Finucane died when I was there and they wanted to debate the program to her. So they paid for me to come to Dublin, but I didn't have to sing for my supper. We had a lovely few days and then she went off drums dam and I went back to London and that was in I think Januario v Wade I haven't seen it since. I'm sorry I. Know I tend to go on and on you have to stop me because I love talking so much we'll. That's good because we have plenty of time actually it's all part of the idea which is that we have free flowing conversation, but let me refocus us for a second. So one of the things I enjoy about you, which may be your stock in trade in a way is. A degree of outrageousness and a willingness to say the unsaleable when there's something that perhaps others much shy away from noticing when you're making a documentary or just preps generally in life you seem willing to go there. Would you agree that that's a trait.
"miriam" Discussed on All God's Women
"Hi and welcome to all gods women. I'm Sharon will harm your host for the show and I'm excited to be taking you on a journey through the Bible focusing our attention on all God's women we'll be talking about women you've heard all your life and women you've never heard of each has a story to tell and I can't wait to share them together. We'll discover life lessons. We can take away from each of these ancient women and apply them to our modern day. Lives join US each week for the latest episode of all Gods Women while a few women in the Bible are given extensive coverage most women are represented by one or two snapshots illustrate highlights or low points in their lives for Miriam. We get four snapshots. First were introduced to her as a child when she watches out for Baby Moses in his basket in the Nile River as a child. She's brave spunky and protective of her little brother. We can tell the just like her brother. She something special but unlike her little brother who grows up in a palace. Miriam grows up in slavery along with her brother. Aaron the next time we see Miriam. She's in her eighties. The Israelites have escaped from Egypt. They've crossed the Red Sea on dry land and watched Pharaohs Army Drown as the sea closed in behind them. Then we see the Israelites. Praising God and Miriam Grabs her tambourine and leads the women in dance and worship as a slave girl now free from the bonds of captivity. She'd been under her entire life. Imagine the Joy Marian must have felt. Her joy was contagious. As the other women joined along with her when Mariam lead others followed her lead in a culture where women were primarily concerned with marriage and motherhood. Miriam remained single. Her focus was on leading the masses. She led the way and set the standard for the other women. She was strong exuberant. An integral part of the powerful family trio. Unfortunately Miriam got caught in her own. Power play no longer content in the role. She held among the women. Miriam wanted more. We're not told how much time passed between the snapshot of Mariam Dancing and her next Mention Bible spout scholars speculate. It could have been a short as a year in between but the next time we see Miriam. She's not looking so good. Miriam's ego got the best of her pious in her own is. She felt compelled to speak out against her younger brother appointing herself as his moral compass. Perhaps as author Paula Parker puts it. She assumed superiority because as the older sister should changed his diapers when he was a baby. She and AARON BEGAN TO CRITICIZE MOSES FOR MARRYING AKU. Shied woman then. She complained that she and Erin were as important as Moses and that God spoke to them as well as Moses. When Miriam spoke. Women listened so I can imagine the murmurings that came as a result of Mariam. It would only be a matter of time before the murmurings crew to fool out rebellion. God didn't let it get to that point. Numbers twelve tells us that God called all three siblings to the Tabernacle of meeting where he proceeded to put. Miriam in her proper place. The Lord descended in a pillar of cloud stood at the entrance to the tent and summoned. Miriam an errand come forward like children called before the taskmaster in no uncertain terms. He made it clear that Moses was not an ordinary man. He was called by God for a specific purpose. And it was not Mariam's place to call down. Moses God's anger burned against Miriam and to show his displeasure. He turned her skin into diseased leprosy. As soon as Aaron saw what had happened. He begged Moses not to hold their foolish behavior over her. And Moses immediately cried out to the Lord to heal. Her intrusive sibling fashion. They all pulled together when one of them was hurting. God heard their cries and responded that she must be quarantined outside the camp for seven days after which time should be healed for seven days. Mariam endured the public humiliation of being a leper unclean and unable to come in contact with the rest of the population. Can you imagine a more humbling experience? And yet even though she failed miserably she was still loved. She was loved by her brothers and she was loved by the Hebrew people. We're told that the entire population waited until Miriam was healed before. They continued on their journey to the promised land. No more mention is made of Miriam until her death in numbers twenty. All the Bible records is that she died and Qadesh and was buried there but tradition says that the Israelites for thirty days after her death. Marianne was blessed to be a leader in a time. When women had little or no authority she was one of only five women in the Old Testament to called a prophetess and she was the first. It was an honor bestowed by God but with that position came a greater level of accountability. Because the other women looked to Miriam for wisdom and guidance. It was especially important that she be an acceptable role model. When she got cocky God had to put her in her. Place is easy for us. To become sanctimonious we can mistake it for being saintly or sanctified but God is not fooled. He knows our hearts he knows when. We're truly striving to serve him and when we're merely trying to act superior and we need to know that God will not tolerate pride among his leaders when we start to think we know best when we try to usurp power from those who have authority over us. When we engage others are pettiness. God will get our attention and it won't be pretty just as God humbled Mariam. He will humble us and we will never be the same again. It appears that Miriam learned her lesson while she may never again have reached the heights that she enjoyed that day on the shores of the Red Sea. We know that Miriam continued on in her role with the Hebrew nation and that she died a beloved woman. How blessed we are that? God is a God who disciples us he disciplines us but he also forgives us no matter what we do if we turn from our wicked ways and humble our hearts and seek his face he will hear our cries and forgive us our sins. Lord God we come to you today humbled we know that like Miriam we so often get caught up in our own self righteousness and forget that you and only you are the one who determines what is righteous. Please forgive us for the many times. We become prideful and arrogant. Thank you for your gentle discipline and for your overwhelming compassion. No matter how many times we fall short of who you'd have us be guide. Us directness in the ways that we should go. We live you in. Christ's name Amen. If you'd like to learn more about marrying check out the show notes where I provide. The scripture references related to marry him as well as additional resources. So that you may study her more tap that concludes today's episode of all Gods Women Tune in next week when we talk about the daughters of Zeliff ahead.

The Skeptics Guide
"Today is Wednesday March Eleventh Twenty Twenty and this is your host Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella. Everybody Cara Santa Maria. Addy Jane Avella. Hey guys and Evan Bernstein. Good evening folks. So it's official the World Health Organization who has declared a worldwide pandemic. Welcome APPS. Well yeah we were. Just I mean we were at this point. We were there just still. It's a milestone only. It is at some point like it's like a certificate you would put on your kids wall. I survived the pandemic t shirt when he wanted story. It's only the third time right. You got the Spanish flu in the late. Nineteen we have the wealth twenty eleven and this burglar twenty eleven. No it was a big enough current pandemics HIV AIDS in Corona virus recent pandemics include nineteen eighteen influenza and the two thousand nine flu pandemic. You're right Steve H. One and one bird flu right or is that swine flu swine flu swine flu and then HIV AIDS. Though it is a global pandemic. It's been categorized. Okay all right we're will make sense. It makes sense so thousand case three thousand cases in the US. Italy is you know they're in the middle. I think of their epidemic China's on the other side of their heirs right. We're just gearing up so now we're in. The phase of social distancing is kind of the word of the day for the US so you know events are being canceled left and right no non essential travel. People are starting to talk about taking their kids out of schools now ours our high school. They're basically gearing up there sending emails out saying that you may have to shut down. We haven't decided yet. But this is what we're GonNa do if we do. And there's sort of laying out the plan threes and it seems inevitable. A lot of colleges are saying we're doing all online classes for the rest of the semester. I'm lucky that I go to school. That's mostly online anyway so I feel like my professors are really prepared. They know what to do. They've been really up to date with everything getting the emails out about plans for in person meetings but I feel bad for a lot of the professors who have never taught online before because it's a totally different skill set and you have to know what to do. Yeah and they're just going to be thrown into it and also the students who have never done online classes like it requires a different amount of self efficacy. I don't know what are we gonNA have older professors taking pieces of chalk and trying to write on so it looks like as of today today the eleventh. Yes yeah one hundred. Eighteen thousand three hundred twenty six confirmed cases globally and four thousand two hundred ninety two deaths. That's that's alive sewer. We'll be talking about a couple of corona virus related news items a bit later in the show. But yeah this is. You know we've been talking about it. You know obviously for months giving the updates and now we were just hitting. I think we could see the peak coming now. You know in. Us As least and a Lotta experts are saying now. Basically everyone's GonNa get exposed. You know it's really just a matter of. How quickly is it going to happen? The key is we want to slow it down as much as possible so it doesn't overwhelm our resources so it's not that we're GONNA keep it. We're not going to keep it from spreading. We're just going to slow the spread because that's a huge difference there were some jackass on. Tv saying just to expose everybody now with opposite. WanNa do we because then the mortality spikes when you run out of things like then a laters beds. It's not going to be literally everybody. It's going to spread through the population. But that doesn't mean everybody's going to be exposed right. I think that everyone is not going to necessarily contract it. The infectivity is not one hundred percent now. But unless you're like seriously isolated you're probably going to get exposed there whole countries where there's only like three cases. Yeah it'll get there eventually. That's the point that's what they're saying it's GONNA it's the human population has no immunity right. So it's a naive population. And it's going to make the rounds. It's going to eventually. Just make the rounds all over the world and then it'll slow down mainly because people will have either most people have already been infected. They won't be enough new. You know naive hosts to keep it going and do we know that you can't be reinfected. Well you'll have. Some level of immunity may not necessarily be one hundred percent of your no longer naive host. You have an immune system that seen seen this virus before the other thing is we want to slow it down and maybe an Iraq seen in twelve to eighteen months we have a vaccine and maybe we further slow it down and also. Maybe it'll be a seasonal situation and it actually will naturally slow down over the summer and give people some relief up until the new season starts if it operates seasonally. Yeah so any of the other thing that everyone is saying which is correct is don't panic but use your commonsense. You know just to avoid unnecessary contact with lots of evil face mask in the. Yeah yeah at least. Some Clark's wipes for the rest of us. Please honks toilet paper yeah please? The Toilet Paper Discusses Shelves Empty. And also don't be getting into fistfights over toilet paper at Costco. It's embarrassing yeah. We don't need a Thanksgiving Black Friday incident. Oh they're all over the world embarrassing. Okay Kerry you're going to give us a what's the word? Yes Oh. This word was sentenced by Linda from Petaluma California. She said I teach chemistry in high school and this term came up recently. So I figured I'd share with you and the whole crew. It's one I've always loved for the simple fact that I find it fun to say out loud. Always a good one to bring up in casual conversation and the word that she recommended is. Moity and Moya and many many of you have asked that we spell the words each week and this is an especially. I think. Necessary one dispel M. E. T. Y. Yeah it's a good one right and so I'm going to start a little bit with the etymology. Because then I think it makes more sense. When you look at all the different usages. Because it's true I had only ever heard of this word in a chemistry context but it apparently also has a sociology context as starting Brooklyn. No it's okay kind of were all French and it also has a property definition so the etymology of the word. Yeah it's from the Latin originally but the first time that has started to look like is old French around the fifteenth century in that usage it meant an equal half a half part or a share which is basically still its definition is just become a little bit more specific over time so if you look in like a dictionary definition you're gonNa find that it means let's see Miriam Webster. Which is kind of the American standard will say one of two equal parts. A half or one or two approximately equal parts or one of the portions into which something is divided or one of two basic complimentary tribal subdivisions and if you look at Cambridge Cambridge Dictionary. You'll see something similar. Apar- share something especially when it's divided into two parts but there they've added the chemistry definition but they just wrote a part of a molecule which is honestly not very specific. So if you really start to dig deep into the term you'll see that again. There are basically three main utilizations. There's the chemistry. Utilization Utilization Kinship and then a Moi early title which is a legal term that describes a portion of title ownership. So if it's like a divided tidal which is kind of interesting make sense in kinship. You'll see it. Referring oftentimes to tribal groups usually native American or specifically Iroquois or Australian aboriginal kinship groups. And also.

Yaakov Lappin: Europe's Refugee Crisis II and the Virtual Caliphate
"Predicted the rise of Islamic state. And where it would establish a caliphate in his book. The virtual caliphate published nearly a decade ago. It's Yaacov Lapeyton military affairs correspondent and analyst research. Associate Bagan sit at center for research studies at Bar. Ilan University and in House analyst with the Miriam Institute. And it's with thanks to Chief Executive Sergeant Benjamin Anthony for making our introduction in nineteen twenty four the last caliphate. An Islamic state as envisioned by the Koran was dismantled in Turkey but in twenty eleven the virtual caliphate outlined an Islamic state that already exist on computer servers around the world used by Islamists to carry out functions typically reserved for physical state like creating training camps mapping out to states constitution and drafting tax laws. His book predicted how Islamists equipped with twenty first century technology to achieve as Seventh-century Vision would upload the virtual caliphate into the physical world. You predicted I. S I did and I even humbly. I predicted that they would establish it in either Iraq or any area where they would find a failure of state sovereignty. I didn't foresee Syria. But I certainly saw the crescent of Iraq area has a place where he's Law mcstay could upload it's vision and absolutely we have seen this transition from the online jihadist world into the physical off-line territorial world you've seen this vision being uploaded and then destroyed by a coalition of Western countries. I look at contemporary history around the world. I'm looking at that terrible attack on this for non-christians is not the same. Inspired idea that they are testing the Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka the Muslims there or are they sending another message is one hundred percent of the same ideology. Salafi Jihadists Salafi jihadists believe that they are in a state of war with the entire world. Where anywhere that does not fall in line with their fundamentalist a vision of how state should be run which is the most extreme of adherence to Islamic law They consider themselves to be municipal war with that place. It doesn't matter if it's an Arab Muslim country that's not religious with them. A Christian country a secular country where Buddhists country and the terrorist cell to carry out this relaxed bombings is perhaps the same Salafi Jihadist ideology that gave birth to al Qaeda and two Islamic. State's Yaacov as you develop these ideas through your research. What extraordinary developments have you found? Well when I was researching the virtual caliphate book which was as you point out approximately a decade ago. I was amazed by first of all how accessible this online activity was was an English. I was being exposed to English. Recruitment chat rooms where a senior Islamist jihadist figures were basically bringing me in British Muslims into their way of thinking and I was alarmed by this by published articles in the times when I was exposing this activity and it also makes me about how how easy it was to get into these foreign taxable. This entire world was these days. I know that things have changed very much so I'm not active in this line of research anymore. But I'm well aware that these chat rooms are encrypted. They're very difficult to enter and they've lowered their profiles so the activities still very much going on very much danger to international security much harder for people who are looking for to find it and get into these four without being spotted by therefore managers now since he wrote the book. We have seen the rise of Islamic state in Iraq and Syria than subsequent defeat and the consequential mass migration of refugees into Europe which has changed the politics of Europe is the gap between the people and their governments in the West bigger than ever in the West. It's hard for me to comment on because I Expertise does not focus on the West. What I can say about migration and how it's going to change Middle Eastern migration to the West. And how could change politics is is? This is just one reason why Middle Eastern refugees are pouring into the West. Another reason is say take the Assad regime. The Assad regime is responsible for millions of Syrians. Leaving the state of Syria. And the fact is that most of these people who are who have emigrated from Syria who who escaped conflict there are Sunnis and they're running away because of the coalition of Shiite Alawites who are waging the war in Syria on behalf of us have basically ethically funds them from their homes through mass murderer and war-crimes so what we're seeing here. Sectarian Warfare Creating wave upon wave of refugees from the Middle East and I think that will destabilize To a certain extent the political systems in the West if it repeat itself C. Another wave which I think is quite likely I mean if I said continues. He's about to launch a major offensive in Italy And if that creates another wave of refugees or if Turkey makes good on its threats to open the gates open the floodgates on Syrian refugees and let them travelling to Europe and we'll see this trend

Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike
"Year is nineteen sixty five. The Vietnam War is escalating. I have today ordered. Tha Nam the Air Mobile Division and certain other footage which will raise our fighting strength from seventy five thousand one hundred and twenty five thousand men almost immediately X. is assassinated Jeff Van. The gunfire went off and his hand was up. I remember turned around and the next thing I saw smell come falling back in the jet. Martin Luther King Junior leads a series of civil rights marches in Selma Alabama. They I want to say to the state of Alabama. Just want to say to the people as a matter of and the nations of the world that we are not about turnaround. We own the move. Now yes we on the move and Norway racism the Bannon and in California farmworkers faced with racial discrimination and economic hardship organizing for their rights as workers. And as okay so quick recap on the history of farm workers on the West Coast and specifically California. Immigrants had been exploited as cheap farm labor for years. I Chinese Japanese migrants then Filipino. Nationals arrived in the nineteen twenties. Mexicans became a large part of the farm labor force around time but also just poor folks of all backgrounds looking for work. Black White Brown were exploited. They lived in shabby wooden houses near the fields. They worked for hours under the Sun. Some even lived in former concentration camps which house Japanese Americans during their internment in World War. Two since they first started coming over in the nineteen twenties Filipino. Farmworkers had tried negotiating for better working conditions and wages with their bosses. Usually white guys called growers beheld. Strikes started organizations and unions. They were often met with violence. Or they'd lose their jobs. Gore's were higher other ethnic groups. Instead scabs to their strikes like the immigrants who came before them Filipinos were thought of as hard workers who were obedient easy to control but they were also militant having lived through years of race. Riots shootouts violent. Confrontations with police growers SCABS. It wasn't uncommon for Filipinos to draw knives on the picket line. Larry it Leon came up in this old school. Militant tradition of striking labor organizing and by the nineteen sixties. He was a leader of a union that represented farmworkers call the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee. A Walk which was supported by a larger union the AFL CIO. Larry worked the likes of Mexican American activists. Dolores Huerta and Filipino. American organizers Philip Aracruz. Who called Larry the most powerful Filipino leader in a walk? He had the most experience. I mean he'd been in a lot of strikes you know and he was the head of a walk at the time this. Miriam Powell a journalist and historian who spent almost a decade writing books and articles about another famous Labor leader Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers which we'll get to in a bit in terms of the nuts and bolts like being a Labor leader running a union. Larry was the guy absolutely. That's where story picks back up as a union organizer and leader one of Larry's jobs is to visit farms in the Central Valley to recruit. New members moves his family to Delano. Where he the mostly Filipino. Workers in May nineteen sixty five opportunity knocks in nearby. Coachella valley where there are also Filipino. Workers who need help. Here's Patrick again. As older Larry. Here's some workers did a dollar forty in our Filipinos are getting a dollar twenty five an hour. Now that don't make sense to me. It's time to strike okay so to strike meant. The workers would stop working until their employers. The growers listen to the demands but striking farmworkers wasn't going to be easy they were going against big agricultural business agribusiness. The man agribusiness was the most powerful industry in California at that time. Million Powell again arm workers were really the poorest people who also had no protection all of this sort of existing health safety and labor laws that applied to other professions. Do not apply to farm workers could be fired at will. They be made to work any kinds of hours or no restrictions no health or safety requirements so for them to take on this enormously powerful industry a was a huge talent when the farmworkers decide to go on strike in the Coachella Valley. They don't go to the fields to work. Instead we pick it in demand for better wages. They held up signs march. Saying chant confront the growers. They don't get paid and some workers are even arrested. But in ten days the growers give in the workers get their fifteen cent raise. Let's pick these grapes. After the harvest Larry in the farmer workers head north to the next job the grape fields of Delano. Where they hope to get the same rates but the growers refused to give the farmworkers meeting a community. Space might remember called Filipino Hall. Let's do this. Delano has a thriving Filipino community with lots of farm workers and members of eight walk so they actually establish a Filipino Hall. And at this meeting it is packed. It's mostly Filipinos but there are also some members who aren't the Black Puerto Rican Mexican even white their backgrounds different. But they all have one thing in common. You've suffered enough under the growers and they want real change now. Really neither raised by public actress on this anymore. We are getting any younger. We need better wages and union today. Dude these courses suck breezing my us of here. Larry and the other union leaders here the farm workers but understandably they have concerns if we strike. You might lose your house. You might lose your car. Your family might be on the streets. Hungary. It's going to be tough. Are you sure you want this farm? Workers decide to vote on whether or not they should go on strike back. My name is John Arlington born and raised here in Delano in present day Filipino Hall. I talked to John Arlington. Whose Father Mariano Lila Farmington also known as Bob was a Filipino immigrant and Delano farmworker. He was in Filipino Hall. That Fateful Day my dad and our family were part of a long agriculture workers organizing committee and with Larry. And Leon Philip the Veracruz People Osco and so many others were here in this hall. I'm talking to you now. In September seventh nineteen sixty five where we had a day long second meeting about the strike. And when Larry asked if anyone could make a motion regarding strike my father stood and made the motion to begin the great strike that started in Delano. Bob's made the motion to go on. Strike those in favor of the strike. Stand up and raise your hands high. Okay so what the heck everyone standing up. We're going on a strike you crazy. Bill Pinos Next Day September eighth nineteen sixty five the farmworkers show up at the grape vineyards ready for work according to the documentary Delano Manos by Marissa. Arroyo just like any other day at work. The farmer workers started picking Ripe Grapes on the vines. Then they'd set them down on the ground they move onto the next Bein. Fake Red Grapes. Set them down. Here's a clip from the film with organizer United Farmworkers Vice President. Pete Velasco we pick the ripe grapes and trim it and then move onto the next by under the same thing at moon. Our there are a lot of big grapes under that is when about the thousand five hundred. Pretty Pianos went on strike against the grape growers in
#DignidadLiteraria Was Never About Just One Book
"Roberto Lovato welcome back to Latino rebels radio we Brian. How are you a Actually I think this is my first. I did it program once I remember. Yeah I had you on before yes I did. I've had you on before. Okay you're right you're right. I'm just so tired. What puts the pause button on the bus? who leads to an Latino rebels campaign? You know. We're good we're good. We are so good. I'm so happy to have you back. Listen for those people. That don't know what they need. That lead that idea is can. Can you just begin to break it down for people that may be have not been following. What's gone on in the literary world mostly New York World of the last last couple of weeks so tell us about? What is it about that idea that is that you guys are doing well? I'm a I'm a student of social movements. Yes and I try to be a practitioner every so often and so I think I can. We can legitimately say that we have a social movement because we have a victory in the victory came about after McMillan flat iron. Her books decided to publish along with people. In Hollywood and Oprah Winfrey to push the book called American dirt as what Sanders he's narrows caused not just the great great American novel. But the great novel of lasts America's right to that effect so would all that promotion that you gave the book that resembled a marvel comics launch. You know the way they do. These multi-platform launches with multimillion dollar budgets. On made it a big deal and so when Miriam Gerbo my colleague and Dini that Talia terrarium defacto kind of leader of US spiritual leader in this. This is an and other leader of us in his She wrote a scathing essay that was rejected by MS magazine and so she decided in her own unique way with their own unique unique voice to call out the novel for what it was which was a cartoon of of of a Latino experience trying to be so to us as a great work of Literature on power with gotta see a Marcus and Gabriela Mistral. Row after Lanyo I mean I just. I still have a hard time trying to put put the name. Janine comments next to that. Yeah so that really moves that when I saw Mary. I'm just say I I was moved in a lot of us. Were moved to action and it moved. W Bose as well who is on top of this and together. We came to form the united idea which talk about is about Nothing less than the insertion of the Latino voice in the national conversation of the United States right now. We're focused on you know in the inclusion of our voices in US literature as expressed in the number of books the number of writers the number of editors the number the people in the media ecology the number of right. You know critics all of which if you look at the numbers are are pathetically low abysmally hello and so So yeah we're about as our name says about our dignity and we have measures of dignity for corporations like Macmillan or flatiron books as well as for critics as well as our own people. What constitutes dignity and so for example? I've been using the the frame very consciously of the decline in Florida the Folkloric Industrial Complex of Latino Literature. ooh What does that mean it means is basically that the as constructed in US literature you get a book contract two degrees you dance. Mambo Salsa a Ranchera 's dress recipe over and and you start you know dancing wight gays right on event. Here in New York is called Tom is about Latinos in the white gays. And the way the whitegate shapes us through the publishing industry so some that have chosen to kind kinda throw on their colorful clothing and act in ways that are safely an expectedly Latino done. That's what I mean by the decline and fall of the Folkloric Co Industrial Complex of Latino Literature. So the question for us. You're in New York this week. You guys had a press conference anyone that wants to follow the American dirt issue We talked to medium good about two weeks ago. My colleague Maria Hinojosa Doodo media did a did a one hour. MPR Latino USA that everyone needs to listen to I actually wrote about the white gays for NBC News So you mentioned the white Gazeau what what happened. You said this is a victory. So what exactly happened this week for you to say that this was a victory. Well let me describe describe the campaign because one of my roles was very much involved in the design and implementation of the strategy that got us to you meet with one of the titans of US Global Publishing McMillan and it's an imprint flatiron. The publisher let me show American dirt so to get there. You have the explosion of energy around American people criticize the content and the writer and all. Aw Ridiculous and actually really racist marketing of it. When you have for example the now infamous? Barb wire centerpieces at a lobster ops to dinner to celebrate American Dirt Bran Janine comments from an organizing perspective. Did her part to be the gift that they kept on giving from an organizing perspective but that that that energy kind was focused on the book and on her and some of US realize well in we need to kind of pivot this and so our first pivot was to start questioning one of the Thai another Titan in US Latino US publishing and Literature Oprah Winfrey Honor Book Club which has spread definitive role in pumping this book up to be something of Steinbeck Ian of an epic. I mean. It's almost like they've been trying to make it to be homer's Iliad of our time for for Latinos when it was written by this woman who has friends who paint their fingernails with with barbed wire and stuff. So you know we always sort of realize we don't need to focus on her any more her book and she herself has done the damage and they're going to go do their thing but what came out of this explosion was the realization of the crisis in. US is publishing especially as it Threat as it relates to Latinos in the United States who have fewer than one hundred and fifty books about what is published by US per year when you have thousands of books published every year so so then we started many of his questioning Oprah Winfrey in her in her promotion of this. She didn't seem to listen to the beginning. And then little by little. We started catching her attention. was that of other. People like Salma Hayek who admitted publicly that a picture that she took and south that she put online with her promoting. The book was actually Fake News. Because she didn't even read the book right. That's right so you have this explosion of energy now. Starting to focus going on oprah going to oprah only to bring more attention and momentum to it because we had by this time we had already sent a letter to McMillan and flatiron books saying that. We wanted to meet with him to discuss how we were going to try to remedy this matter and take the conversation in a more productive a place for all of us right so they responded immediately they wanted to be with us and we agreed into an are meeting was last Monday. And after some back and forth An- Anna realization. That we weren't going anywhere and that we have a mass ask very incredible amount of power in our community. That's there for us to to to work with. They agreed along along with us to a plan that includes a very measurable into you know indicators of the numbers of employees is not just a flat iron but throughout the the Macmillan ecosystem marketers editors and other people involved in the decision fusion making process. That brings you literature in the United States. So this is this is a major victory in that
Regenerative Farming: Could This Be Our Saving Grace?
"Degradation is a global problem and the implications are pretty massive. The balance of our climate ecosystems food security in health are all on the line in this mini episode. Dr Hyman sits down with bestselling author. Miriam Horn as she. Shares one farmers efforts to rebuild the ecosystem at the soil using regenerative agriculture. And you really you know in your book rancher farmer Fishman. You're really kind of made the connection between the food we eat and the environment which a lot of people don't make that connection. You found an extraordinary farmer. multigeneration farmer who had an awakening Justin cough and a and he. He changed his whole way of practicing agriculture in the Midwest in basically the grain belt. And tell us about him and how he had as a weakening and what he's done in house transformed his form in those around him. Well suggestions is a fifth generation farmer and he went to college just us when there was this explosion in soil microbiology when people were really starting to understand the complexity and the importance of the soil microbiome so that was the focus because of his study was understanding. This incredible. What one of the farmers calls a little city underground where everyone's working together where fungi and bacteria are working together? Her to nourish the crops to hold the soil to build carbon in the soil to trap water to do to protect human health to protect plant health to all these critical critical things so so justin came back from college understanding that his most important job was to take care of those microbes that that's what he was really. Farming was the soil L. Microbes. And that the way to do that wasn't a platform rooms a soil this soil farmer and that the way to do that was to farm as much like the prairie as does he could be to emulate the native ecosystem that he lived in this lawsuit now lost prairie this period that had been ripped up by the sod busters to get to make his farm as much like the native Peres he could so that meant never plowing the soil you seed by blowing the seed into the soil. It meant leaving everything on top of the soil. The residues The living plants dead plants. You just leave it there as kind of armor And the holes like a mulch. Yes exactly but the huge scale because he takes when he harvests his weed or his soy he takes the grain out and he leaves absolutely everything everything else in the field. So it's like a ten five foot Tatami Mat so there is no erosion there's an wind erosion there's no rain erosion. It keeps his soils cool pool. Even when it's blisteringly hot in Kansas. I mean one of the greatest things about it. Is that these so microbes that are his most important charges charges when you plow so when you plough soil and you full that residue into the soil. It's like a big Gulp. Basically for those microbes. You're you're delivering them with a hit of nutrients that totally screws up the the balance of microbes. You get a huge overgrowth of bacteria at the expense of fungi. Yeah the bacteria eat through all the organic matter and respond to it as co two your fungi. which are the ones that are really doing all the hard work they are the ones that put out these these beautiful wonderful finger silvery fingers that bring nutrients to the plant? They get choked out by the back so important microcosm in the soil. Fast us at work of fungi. That actually is so critical for maintaining the soil health and even fixes methane which is pretty interesting. The bacteria hear that right. There's nothing fixing mcteer in the soil that help protect against the off gassing from the cows right well that you know more about you should tell me about that. Because I don't know a lot about millennials. Okay well you grasp cows. The you know you're still going to have methane. It's still going to cause. Climate change is far more dangerous. Turn Co two but we know now that the when you have rich grasslands Ashland's that actually there's methane fixing bacteria and fungi in there that hold back the met. That's why we had sixty million buffalo climate change. Well they certainly i. I mean that's fantastic. Hasek they certainly hold carbon. I mean you look at just in soils now and again. His model is the prairie so his metric is the prairie. So it's how close can you get to the levels of carbon and organic matter and the diversity and vitality of the microbiome in the native prairie. We still have some so you can go measure it and say and just in his you know he he his family had farmed since eighteen. Sixty five the old way. He's been farming the new way for about twenty years in in that twenty years he has rebuilt half the carbon that is in the native prairie. He's fixed that carbon in the ground. Because these again this all this organic matter. It's this kind in Goo that holds nutrients in the soil and these fun guy. They act she likes wrap their arms around the carbon and hold it there and the other really important thing in an ecosystem like Kansas which is some of the most extreme weather on earth the great lands and becoming more extreme. All the time is that if view if you don't plow the soil you know when you plough it's like when you ripped steel through soil. It's like a tornado and and an earthquake at the same time you scramble these microbial communities you rip apart these symbiotic relationships and you completely collapsed their world. The healthy soil looks like a coral reef. It's Ville of air and space for water. Plowed soil is just too hard pan that nothing can permeate so because Justin Justin dozen plow if he has a plan if he grows a plant like a radish or an Alfalfa plant that puts down a big old tap route. Ten or twenty or thirty feet down that not channel stays there when and so water can get you into his soil all the way down. The beauty of this kind of farming is it actually allows us to save the water. You're and complete the cycle of carbon. So we don't create emissions lead to climate change very powerful and just doesn't he doesn't aggregate he's able because he farms in this way that keeps us his soils cool and that captures every drop rainwater. He has no arrogation on his extraordinary right. And so you think about these. These as far as it used mass amounts of aggregation and then what happens is when there. There's drought no they can't grow food and when there's rain the soils can't hold the water because their depleted soils and they leads to floods which is why we see. This cycle of drugs dreads flouts clouds and drugs. It's mixing the whole world up and carrying a ton of pollutants into the water. which you don't want you know when soil is eroding? So is everything else like nitrogen that you don't want in your waterways and you know and it's a global issue I mean. There're a lot of people who think who can trace including the Joint Chiefs of Staff if who trace a lot of social instability in the world and even terrorism back to the depletion of soils to drought if people are starving if if they if if they're soils are depleted and they can't grow anything and they're displaced off their farms. They are extremely susceptible to radicalization and Tom Friedman in an writes about once a year he writes that column. I think there's a lot of legitimacy too it's true. I remember reading this book. That that You know we had sixty million bison we kill them all basically deprive the native Americans of their food supply and then you know fast forward into the thirties and we had the dust bowl bowl and they work connected because we protected the soils with the Bison and now we had none of that and then there was a scene in the book where caucus to ground where the the dust bowl was rolling into Washington. DC into Congress while the guy was testifying about what we need to do about it. And it forced the regulators to actually actually do something about it well and and Justin's family there are people who still remember it. Remember this wall ten thousand thousand feet high and two hundred miles wide of dust rolling across the prayer and thousands and two hundred miles across it. Stripped ten. Ten million acres of soil soil is essentially non-renewable and it destroyed millions of livelihoods and so that memory Murray Justin lives in that dust bowl region. He lives in the area that was depleted in that way and that memory. You know it's what led to the creation of the natural resource conservation service that the soil conservation service in the US government but also it really was planted the seeds for this revolution away from plowing because applying was had really set the laid the groundwork for that disaster

Miriam Makeba nickname Africa is associated with the variety of musical genres, including afropop, jazz, and world music, and was one of the first African uses to gain significant popularity in west. She was also an activist against apartheid in South Africa. For those of you who need a quick, refresher set that forgotten apartheid, refers to the period between nineteen forty eight and nineteen ninety four when there was a thorough -tarian government suppression of non white South Africans in the name of white supremacy, it was adopted his actual state policy following the nineteen forty eight election, the economic and social consequences of partied remain significant and problematic to this day.

Sure, seved a Grammy award in nineteen sixty six for her album with Harry Belafonte the to become POWs years earlier, while she was performing in London. They'd remained dear friends, and the two often collaborated after Belafonte helped her with her early solo recordings but Miriam's activism took away from her popular appeal in the US at least with white audiences.

"Maybe teams is the author of bestselling novels. Some are my amazing look boy of good breeding, complicated kindness, the fly and Trautmann's evolve an Aumont Uni Soraya's which you may remember. We talked about a few years ago when it was up for the welcome price and one work of nonfiction, swing, low, a life. She is winner of the governor general's award for fiction to lips award for fiction book of the year. The Rogers writers trust fiction prize, and the writers trips to marry an angle Timothy Findley award Mariam's, latest novel is women talk, and Miriam welcome back. Thank you get to be back. So I want wanna see what the inspiration for this book was, but I don't think it's ratio is really the right word in this context. That's true. What would be the right word? Well, I heard about these crimes that occurred on the Manitoba colony in Bolivia, and this is a an ultra conservative. Of old order Mennonite colony very remote and between. So between two thousand and five and two thousand nine women were being raped to attack first of all, they were being made unconscious with some kind of drug and then raped in their beds while they were. They were knocked out. So they started eventually, they started talking to each other about what was going on and what was happening to them waking up with in pain groggy, and obviously being having been violated and the elders in the community, the male elders and the Bishop almond dismissed their claims, their stories and said that they were making them up possibly that this was some kind of wild female education of something that I saw quoted in and demons are Satan where punishing them for their for their sin. So, and this is the type of this, the narrative around these attacks until one woman stayed up and and stayed awake at night after night and eventually caught one of these. Men. They turned out to be local men minutes from the from the colony and not demons and and caught the one guy. And then you know, he turned in whole bunch of others, eight men in total. So my book is imagined response to those attacks. I've put eight women of two families, three different generations who have sort of been appointed by the other women in the colony to talk about to have meetings to discuss what will happen now, what will they do? How they live? How will they go on how they keep their faith holiday trust, how they protect their children. And so the the entire book really that the content of the book is he's been talking choices about whether they should leave stay in fight or do nothing amiss all taking place after the time. So note described really all in the books. It was on a conscious decision. It was a conscious decision. I think that the the attacks are what what we know of them what happened. There are some details that are already on line and and there was no. Reason to we can. We can imagine what these these attacks in tailed and the trauma that was inflicted on these women. And so I, I really wanted to get to a place of, you know, to begin the book with a place of possible healing or at least reaction to them to the crimes story in Bolivia player. What happened in Bolivia? As far as I know in there isn't a lot written about it, but these are closed colonies where it's it's difficult to to go in. And what happened was that the at first, the decision that the Bishop of the colony had made was to basically lock these men up in an feed grain bin or some kind of farm building for for for many, many years is kind of preposterous absurd notion and and thereby keep keep the people, the women and girls safe. There were men from fathers, husbands, brothers, etc. The women themselves who. Who wanted wanted revenge to what these men's lives are in danger basically. And after these attacks, people are angry obviously. And so from what I understand the Bishop of the colony called in police in the Bolivia in police to to come investigate to arrest the men and to take them away, put them in put them in jail. But that was done basically to protect these men with with no real, regarding terms of protecting women..

"Back to the show so last verse really verse fifteen samarium shut outside the camp seven days and the people did not set out on the march till miriam was brought in again so two questions off of that verse why do you feel like or do you feel like that iran got off pretty scott free my guess is that have ably feels like a doesn't it feel like a like a callback to adam and eve it feels like a little bit of a callback of like who instigated this who had this conversation although they both faced consequences for the disobedience if feels like it was probably her that led the conversation and so when they say they spoke it doesn't mean necessarily that he said those things to now this of course meeting a lot into this but it feels like it wasn't that just she was just we gotta punish the lady it doesn't like the punishment went to the person who really not only started the conversation but continued to conversation even if iran was like uhhuh yeah okay cool i don't agree but you are talking so i'm gonna listen i i read one commentary that said because of a ron place in the priestly nece like in the presentation publicly ryan to have been compromised for seven days would have set things in the chaos so it was almost like look at what you had a part in like you gotta feel bad for miriam but you do have to continue your duties it's almost like you can set out the worship leader but not the preacher fake right not no offense all you worship leaders but it's easier to get away with that the other thing i saw the detail in the people did not set out on the march till miriam was brought in again what what does that seem important to you suggest it seems so important to me because i think it says so much about like in the bigger picture and i think it's a so much about who got is the fact that like when he said letter be shut outside the camp seven days and after that she may be brought in again so they know the word of god which is she's going to get to come back in seven days the punishment is not for a lifetime and it's to me it's actually the beauty of who got is right it's the you are going to face consequences but at the same time there's always the hope of restoration like there's always the even in the old testament when we didn't even fully understand what that hope really was i love it the.

"Like i need to get to his tempo or like is going to be a problem so that makes sense okay for miriam for this character i wanted to channel something that feels like a person who feels like they could be supernatural adjacent right given that she is a profit but also there's gotta be some strengthen her but also a little bit of fragility right so this is really complicated care dron that rebellious spirit like it's got to be there too so so it can't be a blonde white lady so the perso i have chosen is unknown a writer i feel about that oh my gosh that's perfect here's why it's perfect 'cause i think when owner rider obviously is heather's like can get caught up in the group dynamic right which is going to play a part in this role but also like i think of her as being really fragile in stranger things yes shaky twat dog but also protective like motherly figure like in star trek to spot i'm like this is actually a really really brilliant choice and i know i know you you meant to make this reference so i'll go ahead and make it for you and she can be devious like mr deeds the classic cinema treasury that's actually the reference that probably every listener will get his to everything you're so we'll say the cush woman for when she comes up on the story and let's skip straight to moses is a big one right us yeah now been somewhat been little whiteboard time nine alive little bit of whiteboard time that's fairly steering into my soul so for me moses's power is found in like the inferred or the nuance he's a very subtle character right and i think moses has to have an aura about him that's obvious and recognizable but it's not top it's very subtle like you need to get why he's moses while you need to get it in understated way like he can't be like hey i'm moses i'm awesome like that's just who is about so i think the meekness moses is known for is his power but not in a pejorative kind of way a so it's like the inverse of we'll get with with aaron and that's why i've chosen brad pitt to be moses okay that because like breath it's not your he's he's classic look and movie star not like a classic wilson tom cruise like you you get that he's a movie star and you see him but he's not it's all kind of understated in turtle and subtle and i think that's what for me that's what moses when i think about them and i like that because i feel like there are times when we think he's going to be the george clooney like the real care but you know what sometimes he's sitting mike eytan is not chose like an ocean eleven and not really has a lot to say but only speaks when needed and it feels like j k simmons could also be a great partner in crime for absolutely absolutely so those are the characters that we have cast the theme for second and this is really because this is a bit of thin sliver of an excerpt from the book of numbers and i think when you look so instead of having its own theme i think probably just tap into the larger theme of the book of numbers and i think when we look it's not a real artistic english major theme as much as it's the connect the very active relationship between the divine in humans right and this is all about god helping us along walking us through directly interacting with not really in a metaphorical way just like what do you need here it is what did you say here's your here's the problem right into very direct interesting kind of thing and we'll see that theme very explicit as we talked about check well and one of my favorite favorite scriptures in the bible is actually in numbers which feels if you read numbers you'd be like one in here is like your life i what is it like that you can't eat grapes because you're like in a like.
