4 Ways to Live Each Day With Intention by Shelley Levitt
"For ways to live each day with intention by. Shelley. Levitt with live. Happy Dot. com. I WANNA move through life energy and a sense of discovery achievement, joy and engagement. That is my intention. My hope is that living according to it would be the antidote. The uneasy feeling I often have at the end of the day when I flop into bed filled with self-reproach and wonder where my time went. My. Intent is to be guided by purpose instead of feeling that I'm spending my time haphazardly succumbing to whim or distraction according to expert Mallika Chopra creator of the website intense dot com and psychologist Eliot. Berkman. Head of the social ineffective neuroscience lab at the University of Oregon setting intentions. Confession is a kind of internal northstar lighting, the path to greater fulfillment and life satisfaction. These are the changes I've made in the few weeks since setting my intention. Number One, I meditate almost daily. Is taking me years to commit to a meditation habits but the ten or fifteen minutes I spent doing a guided meditation on the common APP has been transformative. The turning point was a workshop I took with so Kessedjian Norman Fisher, a poet and Zen Buddhist priest. When people say they don't have time to meditate. He said I asked them how do you have time to not meditate with a regular mindfulness practice he went on you'll have fewer accidents you lose things less frequently your focus will improve making decisions will become easier. Remarkably found all these things to be true and when I'm feeling stressed I summoned the image I visualized during my meditation I imagine my breath as a long string of pearls and it helps reconnect with that experience of stillness yet as good as meditation makes me feel I'll skip it unless I keep to a schedule. So make sure to meditate daily at eleven am with four PM has a backup. Number two, I've stopped binging on the news. More than ever I. Feel it's important to stay informed but watching new show afternoons show wasn't bringing greater insight into the issues. I care about is only fueling a sense of outrage and I'm happy to have added The Washington Post, my beloved New, York Times subscription reading either one in bed was only deepening my chronic insomnia. So of made some rules, no new shows or Newspapers after nine. PM. Instead I think about how? I WanNa feel inspired amused transported and lanes and I choose what I want to read watch listen to based on that this has led to fewer hours with CNN and more with globe netflix's comedy about a real life women's wrestling league from the eighties the on being with Krista Tippett podcast and Elena Ferrante as beautiful Neapolitan novels. Number three, I cook more. I'd like to lose five or ten pounds, but resolving to lose weight is usually both joyless an unsuccessful. So instead I think about nourishing myself in ways that will align with my intention to feel more energize. And that helps to your me away from takeout Chinese food and into my kitchen when I cook pots of Faro. Embrace Swiss chard practice poaching the perfect tag and dig into cookbooks like Paulo I of food of Morocco and what to eat for how you feel the new all your data kitchen by divvy alter. And try new dishes like Paulo's egg plans a luke or devious sprouted among solid also experienced that sense of discovery and achievement that I'm looking for. Number four, I do at least one new thing each weekend. I've been having all sorts of new experiences, a meeting interesting people volunteering to do kitchen prep at a food pantry hiking trail taking a class in brewing booja walking the Los Angeles River in a meet up led by long distance, swimming champion Diane, and yet attending a talk by no Levine author of Dharma police at the inaugural Budapest in La. Some outings have turned out to be less than inspired. The less said about the mass meditation held at a conscious life expo the better but I always feel like falling through on my intention to step outside my comfort zone. I'm far from living completely in line with my intentions. Three countless ways I stray from the path but feeling courage rather than defeated I've more clarity about the way in which small things Afar too messy desk and unmade bed can undermine your vision of how you want your life to unfold and I think it'll be able to put some new habits in place soon.
Tech startup aims to connect small farms with local consumers
"Because of covid nineteen, some people have been avoiding the grocery store and ordering their food online. Usually buyers turn to major retailers but John Mayock Oh, thanks many are hungry for sustainable local options that they can easily pick up or have delivered. Local food is there. It's so close to us to purchase. We don't know who has it how to get the food WHO's selling it but if we knew that we would Morocco is the founder of Barn Door, a tech startup that connects farmers and consumers. The company software power social media, and online sales for small farms that meet sustainability standards. We're really dedicated to making it simple to buy from the farmers that have regenerative practices, sustainable practices that care about the soil and the animals and the people that they're serving in their local communities. She says, this does more than how produce carbon pollution in allows farmers to keep more of the prophets and buyers to know where their food comes from. You really help build up relationships inside of a community where people are directly buying and selling as it used to be, and hopefully it becomes as convenient as buying from Amazon, and any online entity, and then we're starting to really change the game for local farmers.
Canary's Royal origin story
"Just aim and make that the problem that needs solving what they tell us about how you re right because you actually had a pretty interesting off between. Okay. So we've talked about the thing I'm so sorry this is turned into your life by the way. I mean, look for those of you who are listening I mean you can probably guess that her brain and I. A friends and I'm friends also Hula and I'm friends with Shell like I. Love these guys and I just think the history is is really interesting which is why I'm bothering to draw it out in podcast, but you didn't just go straight from. Straight from post into into things, canary thinks had a previous incarnation. Really. Tell us about that. So. So it's actually interesting because leaving things I knew that we wanted I wanted to try to build a product company. and. My earlier hope was actually slightly more ambitious than that of multiple products ends vision of you just buildings and then split them off and they'll go become companies on their own. And one of the things you figure out as that everything you build actually takes a whole bunch of efforts to get it to market I. didn't know the product that we wanted to build yet. So lost left sense post roll already headed huggy up version of multi go and so he went it's today did on that and made it better and better and better and when I left I had like four or five ideas. One of them was a west of believe it or not. One of them was like, how can we detect badness on this thing? One of them were solving? Remote Password resets as lame as that sounds like the Susan unsolved from a short list of them. And my plan was to find customers could pay me to solve that problem for them with understanding that I could then resell that as a product and and so instead of raising money said I'd go to a customer and say, Hey, this is a big problem for you pay me the bullet for you and after I bullet for them might sell it to other people and so we we tried a few problems and then there's a division in the because one of the first customers that actually did stuff like this fall we built aversion Ibuka version of wikileaks for Ozier, Jazirah. I'm really surprised that you actually a named that because I was prepared to ask you a question about the work you did for I broadcast because this is not something you've really spoken about publicly before is it? No I haven't. Not for a huge secret, but but just because like like generally customer names adjust not what? You did a lot of work for Aljazeera for quite a bit. And I were interfacing with very senior people in that organization. So. So what happened was it started with a friend of mine who worked there said that they needed or they were interested in wikileaks prod program, and this was way early when Wiki leaks was the darling of journalism soap. So you took this is when wikileaks was cool. It wikileaks was cool and all the journalists wanted them and already aljazeera was saying they wanted own platform where people could leak stuff to them. So I spoke to them a little bit and we actually bought a really cool thing for them like like considering when it was. Tells you. It's age it was a Java applet that loads on the client machine. Would negatively tool and natively PGP. Of with the logic that the stuff you want to leak never leaves your machine without being encrypted with a key that's never shown on the Internet. So on your machine gets encrypted and by the time, it reaches the Sava it's natively toward. So the Selva doesn't know who sent it. You can just pull that stuff off the server end up PG peaks update later on and what year was this This was twenty, ten, late twenty ten. So. So it was super cool an and advantage for but. And while I was doing it the whole of Egypt solution habit and I was looking at the at. Aljazeera. Win when Egypt cell. And Up Ultra Zito got taken off the edge and at the time what what I figured out just by accident by being there was that datebook that security meant having a file and here was all that was covering a what was becoming a Adam Spring. But literally, they had zero reveal understanding of security of like everything you can think off flat network and also it's such an interesting business model right? Like like everybody hits the John Lewis but journalists literally have. Some journalists have all the interests of a full blown spies except they publish everything end. Actually vamping up in cotton wool isn't the solution because putting stuff out there is what they do. So, ended up speaking to the general a at the time and. I proposed a bunch of products that I said we could vote for them again with the view to these would be great products A. Outside. And we agreed on a contract where we could hold a bunch of things like how would you know you owned? If you were journalists how would you know that your devices will own stuff like? And the interesting thing is he said look you can do this as long as you come over here to Doha welcome at you. And a at the time it was just my wife and I we said Okay let's let's go do a Doha holiday and see how that works. It turned out to be super interesting. Of An and when I got there, I saw the breath of their problems. And they then went through management changes like a a new data general came in who turned out to be A. Royalty and he was more interested in locking stuff down and at that point I said to them hey, listen he does these projects that we're doing for you but I'll leave. And he said look, can you build also security team and so? Essentially, what I did at that point, and at that point things was just me. So, I had the ability to and I said okay. Hired their team that team up and and something? That's that's not spoken about in the Canadian origin story is after I bought that team and left them like at still periodically. Not so much consult for them as as like give advice to some of the executives like like the head of the new media division or the head of ED Technology Division. and would canetti pitched idea to them of dropping honeypots as as a way to get insight into the new. Satellite Networks and they didn't implement normally they they used to do everything I'd say, and they didn't over two visits and that's when we started to figure the hold on these people want to do it. They just not getting around to doing. And we need to make these. Yeah. The problem that needs solving is is making this thing so easy that people who want to will do it. End. Of the time see sewing them was super interesting because it gives you an interesting view again into the. House coming off ten years of. Ridiculously convoluted hack sense post right because in the position I ended up in like just get involved when it will cool hack. So cool customers and so you end up with these really cool technical problems. And now you walk in an actually your problem is solving. You'll analysts it. Yeah. Journalists in Morocco sharing.

Israel and the UAE: why now and whats next?
"Is the greatest advancements toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last twenty, six years and it marks the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation. The diplomatic, Reproche Mon to nounce between Israel and the United Arab, Emirates last week is not in and of itself quite as big a deal as its orchestrators wished to claim the two countries have never been to war with each other the official hostility to Israel such as it was usually sounded pretty phoned in done for foresake when other Arab governments let fly with the fire-breathing choruses of condemnation in Israel's direction. The were generally very much in the back row of the quoi royal mumbling vaguely along hoping to be noticed. Israel and the US you have. Long. Dealt pretty, easily with each other Israeli ministers have made official visits to the Emirates. There are plentiful commercial ties between the countries Israel had already been invited to exhibit at Expo Twenty Twenty in by the intelligence services of Israel, and the have also long cooperated. The first official Israeli visited to the after the deal was announced was Yossi Cohen, director, of Masa Truly historic moment not since the Israel Jordan peace treaty was signed more than twenty years ago has so much. Progress has been made towards peace in the. Middle, East? By United Jew of America's closest and most capable partners in the region something which said could not be done. This deal is a significant step towards building a more peaceful secure and prosperous middle. East US President Donald Trump is claiming credit for brokering this agreement but suggestions by his proxies and flunkies that this is somehow worthy of the Nobel peace prize he frantically desires. somewhat optimistic granted that President Trump's predescessor barrack Obama was just given. One is a sort of housewarming present but an exchange of ambassadors between Israel and the U. A is just not a seismic recalibration comparable with the peace reached between Egypt and Israel in Nineteen, seventy, eight or Israel and Jordan in nineteen, ninety, four, I say to the people of Israel and Jordan. Now. You must make this peace real. To, turn no man's land into every man's home. To take down the barbed wire to remove the deadly minds. To help the. wounds. Of War to heal. However via the normalization of Israeli, Emirati relations may not be big deal. It may portend things which are indeed it's the fact that it isn't a big deal which may be the really big deal here. Israel's only two previous such agreements with countries as referenced above were with Egypt and Jordan neighbors against whom they fought wars. They were extraordinary responses to extraordinary circumstances. The agreement with the UI founds a diplomatic relationship which seems more or less remarkable than say, a diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Malaysia Will Senegal and Peru. It could have a domino effect. There are already suggestions that some other Arab, states including. Bahrain and Morocco a coming around to the U. I-IT's way of thinking where Israel is concerned and from there, what else might be possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already spoken of hope that the direct flights which will shortly link Israel and the could be allowed to cross the skies above. Saudi Arabia. The prospect of an Israeli embassy in Riyadh might not seem exactly likely just yes. But nor does it seem any longer like a completely demented fantasy? I've Alanine Adam first of all. In our opinion this action is incorrect wrong one hundred percents. And it is a betrayal of the Palestinian. People and the will of Muslims and the will of quotes. Villas in autumn on Amazon one. Zero. Two significant shifts underpinning this realignment one is that in recent years Israel and the Arab states have discovered something they agree on Iran which regard as some combination of nuisance menace and existential threat. The other is that Israel and the Arab states have discovered something that they no longer disagree on at least old that much Palestine, which the rest of the Arab world seems less and less keen on pretending to care about a much ballyhooed component of the Israel you deal was Israel's promised to suspend its plans to annex the West. Bank. But it is difficult to believe Israel was ever entirely serious about that. Indeed it sounds in the light of the agreement exactly like the kind of mad idea you float. So you can make a big thing of agreeing not to do it as part of a subsequent diplomatic negotiation. News of the Israel. You a deal was very much not greeted by widespread dancing and celebrate tree hooting of car hoons in Gaza and Ramallah. There have been from Palestinian sources grim mutterings about betrayal by their fellow Arabs. Unfortunately, nowadays, most of the Arab is looking after their own interests at the expense of the Palestinian course. The wretched reality is that it's nothing. So sinister, it is simply that Palestine is increasingly regarded in Arab capitals as yesterday's cause and as a baffling boring headache one of the hardiest diplomatic truisms is Lord Pompton Quip that nations have no permanent friends no permanent enemies just permanent interests right now to the UAE and other Arab states which may follow. Israel seems a much more interesting ally than
Jimi Hendrix’s ‘60s Japanese sunburst guitar sells for over £160,000 at auction

Travel to Penang Malaysia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about paying. I'd like to welcome the show ruth from Vancouver and that's not the one in Canada but the one in Washington and that's the state of Washington. DC. WHO's come to talk to us about Penang? Malaysia Ruth Welcome to the show. Thank you. Glad to be here and some of you met ruth. If you traveled a with me to Morocco ruth was one of the people on that trip and we're friends from long before that and you have spent the last. Three years up until the coronavirus down in southeast. Asia's that have I got. The timing writer was longer than Well, we had three years in Singapore. And then we were into our just pass our first year in Penang when the covert virus and I actually was here in the states and got stranded here as the movement control order went into effect inning and I wasn't able to get back into the country. So we're now home back in the state of Washington and Yeah. But Penang was our home for about a year. Will, and when we get to the point where we can, why should someone go to Penang? Penang is just a very interesting piece of as. You have three distinct people ethnicities who make up panning opening is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's the second smallest. It's the only one that has a island plus mainland components, and the island is the part that we are familiar with. That's where we lived. We lived in Penang Island Penang. Island. Has Like I say three different distinct groups. There's the Chinese, which are about fifty percent, which is more than the most of Malaysia, your Chinese percentage, and then you have forty percent Malay- and about nine percent of the Indians who are mostly Tamil speakers so there from southern. Yup and then we have the expert groups and in particular, there's one large group of experts that now reside in Penang as a result of Malaysia's M. M.. Two H. Program, which is Malaysia my second home. So quite a few people have actually retired they've made it their permanent home. So it's a very eclectic group of different ethnicities and different cultures and they do not intermixed very much. So you really do have these distinct. And distinct foods and distinct ways of living and languages, and you can do it all in a very small space and people have been to Singapore Penang. It's about the third of the size of Singapore. And only has about fifteen percent of the population of Singapore's on the island about seven hundred thousand people that makes it much more spread out. You're not just in these big crowds of people and yet you're experiencing the same kind of cultural mixing and interaction that you might get in Singapore. I like to think of Penang sort of like Singapore before Lee Kuan Yew came in and modernized and sanitized. Everything, so Penang gives you that old feel I think of what Singapore would have been like. Before everything was cleaned up and so and not to say that it's dangerous or unhealthy to be there but you just get that kind of older. Feel you have people cook it on the streets for food and things like that. So the I highly recommend going just because it's different than a lot of other places you might go in Asia will in terms of Malaysia we're on or just off of the mainland portion of Malaysia in the. West Coast in the north. So we on cow before we're south of that which is way up by the border with Thailand and then we`re Two thirds the distance from Kuala Lumpur up to the type border. Yes yes. Like you say we're to the west of the mainland and very close actually up. I think there's only one one state may be two that are above pinning on the mainland before you get to. Thailand. So it is still pretty close to time. There is some influence of Thai Culture Thai food. In. What is in Penang Yeah I? Think you're forty miles from Thailand. yes. Yeah and what's interesting about pinning to is, and we'll talk about this a little bit more but you came and visited us when we were in Singapore and we went to the parental museum to remember that in singer. So Penang is one of three places in that Malaysian Singaporean area that has Parana Akin Chinese or also called the Straits Chinese also called the bubble Nokia's so they are located in Penang Malacca and in. Singapore. So I've actually been to all three places. I've been to the museums in each of those places and it's a fascinating culture. People from that culture came from China from mainland. China many years ago. treaters remember correctly yet and they came in and adopted many of the Malay Practices and cultures, and some of the foods and sort of turn them into their own. They were usually very very wealthy and their homes were extravagant and their furniture was lavish and carved, and they also incorporated some of the colonialism of the British. So they had fancy dinner ware and fancy glasses and mirrors and their homes were just beautiful and in Penang you can go onto Church Street, which is down in Georgetown and there is a Paranthan Museum there for Twenty Ringgit. which is almost nothing that's four ringgit to a dollar. So it's five dollars you can go in and get a tour of the product museum there, and it's fascinating. It was owned actually by a gangster. A Chinese gangster and his family I and It's now part of the state I believe as a museum and they do try to preserve this product can culture because it is only really in these three distinct places.
Floodgate and tEQuitable
"Welcome back to another episode of Zeroed IPO and we have to awesome guesses. Good Morning Lisa Good Morning. And how are you today? The morning? Good Morning. Doing great can't complain. We're going to have a very lively conversation about a wide range of things that I think will be applicable to our audience. Let me, introduce our first guest today and Morocco who is a pioneering tech investor at floodgate, and among many accomplishments, has a PhD in math modeling from Stanford where she also teaches entrepreneurship, and I think it's going to have a lot of insight to share with all of us today about what it means to start and run a company particularly in difficult times. I. Certainly Hope so I've started adventure in two thousand one, and then again in two thousand eight, so I do have some memory and recollection of hard times. Our other guests is Lisa Globe term. Who is the founder and CEO of technical and we're GONNA. Learn a lot more about equitable today, but Lisa has a fascinating and varied career. Leading up to the founding of technical, you were the chief digital officer for the Department of Education. You've worked at a bunch of big companies. You've worked at government, which is the biggest company of them all? You were the chief digital officer at bt. Networks You're also one of the senior management team for the launch of Hulu so when you started this company. You had a lot of experience navigating corporate environments, and so, why don't we just dive in and talk about how that experience informed the founding of equitable and why you did what you did? I've been fortunate enough over the course of my career to work on some pretty transformative technologies, so whether it was shockwave, which was the first time the web. whether it was helping with the launch of Hulu. It's been a hell of a journey in terms of making change, but it was really at the White House where I came to understand that we really could harness technology to solve what had been previously thought of as intractable problems right? I want to focus on making improvements right here on our home planet to solve the issues for the under served the underrepresented in the underestimate it, so that was kind of how it all came to be well. Let's get into the details of it. Tell us what testable is. How did it fit this this desire on your part, yeah? Equitable is really about using technology to make workplaces more equitable, and our mission is to create work culture that works for everyone and in order to do that. We've created this platform that that is independent third party and help people address issues of bias discrimination harassment in the workplace. But more generally kind of helps folks with in a personal conflict workplace misconduct, those kinds of things, so we do two things one is we provide a sounding board for employees where they can when they're feeling uncomfortable in the workplace and they can come and explore their options. Get Advice, and basically figure out what their next steps are in how to move forward, and then on the flip side. People are using the platform. We actually gather data that we anonymous and we aggregate, and we use that to identify systemic issues within organizations culture. We create a report for the management team with actionable recommendations so for us again. It's really important. Important that we work on both sides equation where we are empowering and supporting employees, but we are also helping companies identify issues and address them before they even escalates were trying to create this virtuous cycle again getting to the systemic issues. A lot of what you have done with tech quibble is create something that was needed, but that maybe people didn't know they needed, and certainly now they may not even know that the solution is out there for them. which I think will resonate for a lot of our audience members who are creating something to solve a problem that most people as you said at the beginning is intractable or people think that. If it was easy to do. Somebody would have done it right. I think that's it so for me. The thing that's been again really gratifying is that. We're just kind of talking to folks. People like you're the first vendor I have ever spoken with. That is solving a problem that I have today. I know exactly what this problem is, but I didn't know like. Where have you been all? My Life I didn't know a solution like this existed once. I've talked to somebody for five minutes. It's like Oh my God I totally. Totally, get it like this makes perfect sense to me, but I gotta get that five minutes because they don't even know that assertion might exist. That's actually one of my big questions for you all, which is what are some of the factors that go into when you're creating a new market? And how do you? How do you get people to even be aware of that situation?

Authorities Receive List Of Demands From Increasingly Hostile Coronavirus
"A disturbing new developments in the fight against Covid Nineteen. That is apparently left. Authorities stunned the morning officials from the F. B. I. announced that the increasingly aggressive corona virus had issued a list of demands that they must fulfil within twenty four hours or else. Here's FBI. Spokesperson. Eric read on the virus demands. Today we received a ten page list of demands from the novel. Coronavirus which has demanded the following the destruction of all available pe free rein within nursing homes and a mass disposal of all hand sanitizer if these demands are not met another three thousand die tomorrow joining me now to unpack all this is. Npr senior correspondent. Marcy Hammond Marcy. This is extremely disturbing news. It is Lesley and it indicates that the novel Corona Virus is getting bolder by the second in addition to those demands laid out by the FBI. The coronavirus is also reportedly demanding. The release of political prisoners ties to the virus such as Bulla polio smallpox and the bubonic plague but according to read the window for negotiations may have already closed. Already opened up. Several states disbanded the coronavirus task force and even given the virus access to the White House in an act of good faked but despite these efforts to reach a peaceful outcome covid has only become more violent and erratic. At this point we are beyond compromise and we will not be negotiating with the virus further. Wow now read mentioned the virus becoming more erratic radic. What exactly did he mean there. Well yesterday at Mount Sinai Hospital hostage. Negotiator Tony Kemp attempted to de-escalate the ongoing situation. But that's when the virus upped the stakes and ordered the government to hand over twenty million dollars in unmarked bills as well as a passenger plane. Filled with temperature regulated human hosts and. That's when things took a turn for the worse. Take a listen to the exchange stand-down patients go now and this can still. Oh God throwing the ventilators out the window cover. That's it I've got an armed officers then. Reportedly opened fire killing several hospital. Patients in the process feeling provoked the virus double down on his previous demands including additional demand for two thousand pizzas because it was quote getting hungry to think. I was just at that hospital for a sec to me I could have been stuck in there with all those people Morsi. What's the last resort here does the US plan to send a SWAT team or create a vaccine. Well not yet. Researchers are working furiously on a vaccine but upon learning the news. The virus didn't seem at all concerned released the following message quote. Ha Good luck with your vaccine. By the time it gets out of clinical trials in six months to a year. I'll be sitting on a beach in Morocco and will have mutated into something far worse. Chilling News.

Not All Bread Is Yeasted Bread
"You're listening I'm Adam rappaport all right first up this week. We've got editorial assistant. Jesse sparks getting on the phone with basically editor expert Baker. Sarah John to talk about non east of bread. Everyone's been obsessing over homemade sourdot lately and baking a lot with commercial scoreboard east. But Today Jesse Sarah are focusing on breads and bread lake. Things are made without either of those after that chef tyler record reads an essay. He wrote for Bon petite dot com called. I used to be a chef. Now I'm defeating monsters with a toddler in my empty restaurant. Okay here's Sarah and Jesse okay. Sarraj Powell basically editor baking extraordinaire agency. Tiny kitchen gear. How's it going fine? I made a horrible loaf of bread through. No that is a great way to start off. Bread podcast cursing which I do not curse. Secularly at high was so frustrated. I think it's the kind of thing we're like when it's good. It's good when it's bad it is. It is so bad the process. What's happened so I was like super diligent and it was soured. Oh it's like everyone can roll their eyes by. I was really diligent about it and I had even written Alec this full schedule of every time I had to fold it like it's rests. I had coordinated my day around it and I think I just let it overproof because it was kind of warm and my kitchen and I didn't take that into account so when I went to look at it after it was fully risen it was ready to get shaved. It was gigantic like pressing up against the LID Super Wet and I put on the cutting board lie work surface and I was kind of like this is going to be fine just like us us enough flour and anyway this was all karmic energy. Because I just the I had been talking to you about this but like a few days ago. My husband was making bread. And he was just like disastrously shaping it like like I was in there in the kitchen like over his shoulder like a little Brat. Being like this is what are you doing like horrible? And they came out super flat and I was like you know patting myself on the back. Little Miss know it all and then. Yesterday my bread was a disaster. Speaking of issues the sourdot there is so much to the world of bread. In kind of your estimation. Can you give me kind of like a breakdown of the three general categories and breads? Oh well I guess it's like you have leavened unleavened breads so like you know breads that are rising in some way and I guess like an ancient times that was usually like wild beasts which is sour dough and people who are still using wild yeast to Baker Baking sourdough bread and then you have breads that are leavened with instant or active dry or fresh. She's which is commercially made east. And that is much more convenient. And it's much more reliable and consistent because like you're getting a product that was made in a factory you know what you're getting instant. Yeast is my favorite of those. Because it's like virtually indestructible like my instant. Used has literally been fridge for years and still got still got it. Yeah and then. They're like you know quick breads which are breads that are leavened with chemical lavender's so yeast which is like a living organism but baking powder and baking soda. And then there's the world of unleavened breads flat breads so like PIRATA wrote. They're probably hundreds of flat. Breads just on the Indian subcontinent alone. And then like they're flat breads literally number single culture People at have been really into Scalia pancakes lately and they're like also you know tens of different types of Scotland pancakes and make it more confusing. Some flat breads are leavened. So like pita is a flat bread but it's leavened non is often Levin sometimes it's leavened with yeast sentences leavened with Baking Powder Bing Soda. So yeah it's a huge world for big big wide world of bread it's terrifying so one of the things that we're going to focus on. Today is the big wide world of nine east. Does that still managed to produce those like beautiful brady like chew texters? So can you kind of tell me about what are some of your favorite examples of like the non USA does if you're not going to use yeast. I think like the best option usually is eleven or like baking powder baking Soda Soda. Breads are really classic bread this leavened with baking soda and it kind of like has that baking soda e taste but it's tamed by acid so baking soda as a base but if you add enough acid to it you kind of temper that you know basic taste and those are super easy to put together and like hard to mess up and acidity in the dairy oftentimes. That's buttermilk makes it tender. It's not I wouldn't say it's like a great bread for like slicing like a sandwich or anything. But it's like great to pull apart enjoy and you can make it savory or sweet those are great and then you wrote about beer breads which are fun because they use like the carbonation of beer in conjunction with the Londoner to get an even bigger rise and then another thing is that people on the Internet Have been kind of like pulling up these recipes that are also like creative ways to get around this yeast shortage that were having and so something. I've seen that I'm interested in is assault risen bread which I have not tried but apparently it has a stench stench. Like that's why people don't really like to make it anymore. I'm into that and then I've seen this peanut butter bread going around which uses peanut butter to get that sort of bread like consistency. Yeah and then I think like flat breads are different often. Provide like a different thing like. It's kind of a different product but I find those to be super satisfying to me. We have a yogurt flat bread on the site. Developed by Jesuit excited another one by Chris Morocco and those are both very fast breads to make they don't involve any east at all and yeah I mean I also have made a non type flat bread that was used baking powder and Baking Soda and Yogurt and not turned out really well. Also so there are a lot of options if you don't have yeast though it's not exactly the same

The Fight Against the 'Sheriff Joe' of Massachusetts
"Listen I wanted to talk to you. Because of the current case attack happening in Bristol County and the lawsuit that you guys have filed before we get into the recent developments. Can you explain exactly sort of history of this lawsuit? And who you're representing so people get the context. Yes we filed a corona virus class action against immigration and we focused specifically on the detention facility in Bristol County Massachusetts of which is run by the Sheriff Thomas Hodgson who is a a poster child for right wing anti immigrant policies and practices He fashioned self Under mold of Sheriff or Pyo from Morocco County Arizona Who was notorious for his anti immigrant in inhumane practices at who eventually was sued very successfully for discriminating against Latino community Not a first time. Suing the lawless sheriff at here in Bristol County. We have sued them repeatedly And it always pivots on extreme practices against Latinos one of our earlier lawsuit against Bristol County. It's because they were refusing to release Individuals who qualified for sale even though they had no legal basis for keeping them. They were not allowing them to post bail because they were immigration immigrants. Just based on Durham Immigration Status and so we successfully sued the sheriff over those practices of Bristol. County fast forward to this pandemic were seeing the same problems. essentially an institution where immigration trump's public health and that cannot provide any type of support for people who are at risk of Corbin nineteen infection and the conditions in Bristol. County are life threatening. They are unconstitutional. And that's why we sued. We sued because we knew that it was just a matter of time that the Bristol County facility becomes lit with Dacoven nineteen and just lights up like a tinderbox and so our lawsuit is based on the humanitarian release of immigrants who cannot be safely capped in immigration custody. It's what's happened so far from what I understand you. You had a decision that allow for a full out. You know several immigrants to be released. Let's talk there. Let's just keep time. Let's keep tick talking this and when you talk about it when you mean unconstitutional constitutional and conditions. What does that mean exactly in the context of the law? Well the the law is very clear. That detention cannot have cruel or inhumane aspects and so we're talking about exposure to Kovac nine teen and the failure to provide adequate and protections as an added punishment to people right you. You're not taking precautions to prevent the spread of disease and in so doing. You're subjecting. These immigration detainees to illness infection and potentially even death that is not a part of the punishment that is not a part of the detention. And so that's what I mean by unconstitutional conditions. It is that risk very serious risk of infection because the facility has not done enough or or anything really to meaningfully and materially. Protect the immigrants. And so were really happy to see that over. The course of this corona virus class action that we filed in Bristol County we have secured the release of fifty immigrants from the facility. Which is incredible. So tell me about what happened on Friday. At least what you you understand happened. Delegation has been contentious The federal government refuses to release the individuals. And it's really happened through court order. One by one through court order up to fifty now But the situation has been tense and Bristol County. Sheriff Has Gone Fox News and done other media programs to express public enter About the lawsuit to express anger at at me at my legal team at the judge. calling activists Saying that we are

"I think. Of kind of what you're looking to see in Morocco in weatherwise. It'll be pretty temperate. You know, so it's not gonna be too bad. So you hit their spring. So you go spring up if you can't bring fall, I guess we bomb. Yeah. The fall I love fall time to because he do hit these patches where it's not not New England or anything. But you know, you get some patches of these forest lands where you know, you don't expect it in Morocco be crossing the mountains said he hid. These forest lands were another leaves turning reds yellows Browns. And all that it it lends another kind of beauty to the place, but spring absolutely everything in bloom and everything so, yeah, if I'm going to spring tour in Morocco. Like, I said, you gotta start Marrakesh. It's a place that doesn't disappoint again. There's lots of different budget options, including some great mid range shot can boutique Riyadh hotels there that I think are a place to start. You know, you're going to understand quickly that America does. Have you can go on tours? He can go see, you know, the stadium tombs in walked by the to be a mosque in, you know, go into the Americas museum and all that. But really, it's it's I mean, you give familiar with the place through some of that stuff. But really it's a place that you spend most of your time just walking through the old souks. You know, these old marketplace's in haggling was owners over stuff, you probably don't need. I mean, this is this is dodging scooters at are everywhere events tomorrow. You know, it's vibrant. It's lively, you know, there's nothing quite like being on the gymnast met right after sunset, you know. When he when he come out that right after sunset is just it's like a circus every night, you know, it's just the energies there. There's all sorts of street performers all sorts of I don't know new name it. There's everything going out. There is, you know, it's it feels like, you know, the the moment in there's a mess that you feel like this is where it's all happening in tap tapping. And it's happening here. That's the feeling you know night. So you're doing. You're doing what a a couple of days in Marrakesh. Right. I just spent a week in America felt like could it used another week? And I was doing stuff everyday. Like, I am not lounging by the pool, you know? So if you if you want to give yourself a little bit of lounging time, you you don't feel like you need to do a lot. I say man, three nights America minimum is that's the first city, you're hitting. I'd stretch that four nights, particularly if I'm getting over any sort of jet lag or something like that. I'd wanna give myself at least a day to just kinda chill out. The American says easy to do. I think three or four days lots of beautiful gardens to walk through banned. Yeah. If you set yourself up in a nice enough, looking at the mid level type thing it'll be really easy start as till your trip. Brennan car. That's the next thing. I do because we're gonna head south at once we head south. There's not a lot of trains public buses only run once or twice a day, you'd be on a very tight schedule. If you're doing buses. So that's why I rented a car this last time, and I'm very happy. I did it turned out maybe cheaper than doing a lot of the grand taxis. I dunno less headache, anywhere. I felt like had more freedom to just kind of stop and pull pullover when whenever felt hey that looks kinda cool. I can't honestly I can't count. How many roads have went down? Just because I like light the name of this place. I was like, oh that sounds cool. Nothing's really written about it. Let's fun over here. Do night. You know, I love that the classic road trip. You know? So I think this is dietary that for me would be the classic road trip. You know? So you start Marrakesh youth report as there, and then I'd head out to swear, I do at least one maybe two nights in swear that's out on the coast to me on the Atlantic coast. Eating at mea. Which is awesome. It's delicious restaurant, kind of French Morocco confusion..

"You kind of flying right through could be could be probably refusal cheaper to do that. And get. Or two in Madrid because fights to your we get deals all the time. And then as you said budget airlines between Europe, especially down Spain and that area down to Morocco. I've even I've looked cheap. So you probably spending less money all told than if you just book around trip US to to Morocco. Absolutely. And so, yeah, I mean, usually like I've found roundtrips less than one hundred bucks from Paris down to Fezzan defend America. But yeah, I mean, you're always finding deals even for the budget airlines on there. So looking at like, your round trip tickets, you know, depending on where you're coming from the US, you could be looking at you know, about a thousand dollars between your round trip to the US and then also round trip down Morocco from somewhere in Europe. So this is what I tell people in. If you're if you're looking at bookending, you know in in Europe by say two weeks is usually a little bit better. You know, you come into Europe, whatever, you know, Madrid Barcelona Lisbon Paris wherever you wanna fly into London. Even if. That's your thing. Find the limit. That's fine. But, you know, fly one of these cities, and then he spent a couple of days get over your jet lag. You know, have a kind of easy time of it. Maybe revisit something. If it's usually most people have already done in Europe. So maybe go back to city really liked. And like, you know, like revisit something like a museum or something like loved and then head to Morocco do ten days do told days Morocco. You know, do a good mix. I think of you know, what are two cities in some countries stuff get out into the mountains get out of the desert because that's where I think a lot of countries. That's the kind of the coolest that happened cities are even Raka they tended kind of. We find the camp season, the McDonald's everywhere, you don't it's in the country where you can really see the big differences between cultures in places, which I think are a little bit more interesting for most travellers go into Morocco for. Yeah. I mean, I'm not going to Morocco to eat at KFC. I can just go down the road. If I want. All right. So then we're taught like give us then a good itinerary to week ten day two week people can change that based on how many days, but what should they see? And again, we're talking first time travelers to Morocco because we'll have to come. You have you come back on and do a destination diary about Morocco where we dive a little deeper, but first time travelers to Morocco, basically me and how there were coming in. We're skipping CASA Blanca. Okay, cool. What where do we go? What do we see, you know, what would be your itinerary for those type of people? Basically, what what what what should I do when I come there because we're going to plan this out by the end of the podcast. Okay. I'm gonna give you one itinerary, but I'm going to say that the. Yeah. The this is a season specifically. Right. So. Morocco's best. I think visited a temporary like this is best done either in the spring or fall in the summer. You don't want to get out to the desert. You don't wanna be inland. It's just too hot, Nina. So that it's disgusting. You don't spend vacation like that. All right on that. No. When people would you recommend people come like is there a high season where it's more expensive like when we come to Morocco. Yes. That most travel, especially if they're a little bit elastic with their, you know, travel times that they can do their nailed down to that. You know, two weeks in August vacation trying to make it a try to make it in the spring is the ideal. You know, if you can come March, April, I think is ideal because you're gonna get everything blooming. It's going to be warm but not too hot. You know, the nights can still be surprisingly, cool, but not cold. You know, end your days will be hot. But not suffocatingly hot. You know? So it has good mix..

"And did that for six years, you know, which is about five years more than I thought I was going to. Okay. So interesting. Yeah. That was my thought is what what did you go intending to do which sounds like a year? And then what made you stay in the small town in Morocco for six years the yes, so originally I thought I'd use it as a stepping-stone for teaching. So I'd kind of teach year here year their income at work my way around the world doing that. That was my idea going into it. But going back to that that idea of liking myself in London liking the challenge of this environment. I really liked that in Morocco in are really like the challenge of on the weekend. Trying to go to the weekend market to get my vegetables, you know, that for me was a blast like every week in new coq what's gonna happen this week in, you know, something done just getting around. It was always it's always a little chaotic. It's always a little, you know, like a little difficult. For me in a good way. I like places that are a little bit difficult. I think in some ways some of that could be language some of it's just Hannah STA living. It's not something. You're accustomed to. I talked to good friend of mine. Who's been in Morocco? He's born and raised in New York in Morocco since the seventies not Not young. as longtime, and he goes back and forth. You know, he's up in Europe a lot goes back to the US. But one thing he he said to me stuck off said a he finds the US just too sterile. Like, everything's just so clean. I jam with that, you know, I did that entirely. I'm like, yes. It is a little to Cleveland for like that issue. You know, what's interesting to me when you say that like, I wasn't even thinking cleanliness as much as I like when when you're in south East Asia in Thailand areas like this. We just can do what you want, and that's not to say in a bad way. But you know, like, you're on a street, and there's not really like lanes on the street. Everyone kind of follows their own little air. But then when I'm in the US, obviously, you driving down the street, you're driving in your lane. And you're in like he'd just take a motorbike zoom around people's zoom around you it works. And I missed that sometime. This idea that I'm just I'm just going to do what I need to do or what I wanna do within certain nor moral norms. But I'm not being like everything is in so cookie cutter. Boom, boom, boom. Yeah. I got that the thing, you know, the driving to the same. You know, I tell people are driven in like southeast Asia driving Morocco BSN's, you know, it's a it's a. Save idea. Just like the lane is more of a guidance in a rule. Yeah. What then brought you. Okay. So you're Morocco for six years. Then you move from this four thousand person Moroccan town to Paris, which obviously so we'll talk about the shock or if you experience cold shock. But what what was it that brought you to Paris then? That's my wife. She had. So at the university wasn't bit of a decision for us because of the university. I was tenured in a way, you know, the closest thing to have. But I have a guaranteed job for life there. I'm teaching English literature and composition as far as teaching goes.

"So it because I believe that is a, you know, it's kind of a what do you call it like a? When you when you start something off on the right foot? You're really setting the tone for your trip. And for me if you want to set a great tone start off on the right foot, and for me that begins from the moment. Your foot touches the ground another great tip for those. That are in Europe. You can take the ferry from Theresa Spain into tanger-. It's a thirty minute ferry ride as beautiful as all get out inner crossing continents across Gibraltar. You can see the rock of Gibraltar in the distance from the coast of Spain. You can see the coast of Morocco, and they're right there. You know, they're almost kissing cousins Mets it but ended ended it is incredible to see just in the space of seven miles or about fourteen kilometers. How different the world's can be how much they change. And also at the same time kinda how similar they are as well. You know, these just get thrown into high definition, especially that first time he kinda make that that ferry crossing. So for me, that's kind of the best ways to come in. Morocco, you know, either by ferrying tanger- or flying into any airport that isn't cause of Lanka. So I think I think that's a good start for the trip. And then you were saying if you had two or four weeks, what would you do a lot of times people built their travels around certain activities? They like our experiences they wanna have. And I know there are some traditional tourist types experience of experiences that you can have in Morocco. What some of those are what some of those might are maybe are worth it and not worth it, those even even better tip. Sometimes is the things that hey, you've heard a lot about this. But it's and of course, that's all subjective. But. Hit send them one. Hey, you've heard a lot about cousin. Bog don't go there? Right. Okay. Yeah. There you go. Sometimes it's the things that people say not to do that kind of paint a clearer picture of what to do. Sometimes I guess that other thoughts have traveling to Morocco are a, you know, I think about the seasons. I would not go there in the summer. Yeah. Summertime. You know, if you stick to the coast that could be okay in terms of temperature. It's not too hot. But the coasts are flooded by all the tourists from Europe all the tourists from Morocco. You know, everybody kind of vacates the desert stop that really hot core of the country in the day fled to the coast. And so even if you stick to the coast where temperatures will be nice, you know, the hot sunny, warm, he can jump in the ocean. And all that. It's it's almost too crowded to make fun. I think particularly in some places that are typically a little bit more off to be passed a little bit less, less traveled. That's that's true except for probably August, maybe July. So when are the best months to travel then? Spreading and fall by far the best, you know, I if chosen between between the two I'd say probably springs the best time to go. Because then you get you know, turn them in the mountains. You got all these beautiful, flowering plants everywhere. And you start to see the green, you know, really really kinda take root the coast are still great for, you know, taking the whole little swim in the ocean. It'll be chilly, but it's still really nice out. And then in the desert your temperatures during the day are bearable, you know, they're up to forty five fifty degrees celsius there like one hundred ten one hundred twenties, but this more going to be like ninety degrees out or so which makes you know. So you can do a day in the desert Jerry comfortably..

"Their trip is to think about flying not into CASA book, so cousins Lunka is the hub for a lot of international trips. So if anybody out there listening in there, you know, flying through the by flying from southeast Asia are flying from north America South America in doubtedly. Like, if you're gonna look for a ticket to Morocco, it's gonna end up in CASA Blanca, and that is not necessarily the way. I would go about it a CASA Blanca despite the name cachet from the probably movie in all that it's not a very romantic city. It's it's busy. You know? It's Morocco's biggest city. You have to dig deep to find its charm. I think and I think once you've been through Morocco seen some other places than 'cause it's a little easier to find at Trump because the blond guy feel, but I mean for what you're imagining for what most people magin in their heads. It's a hell of a lot easier to fly to Europe a spend a night. Get over your jetlag spend a night Madrid spent a night in Barcelona's Paris US tonight London in fly directly from one of the European capitals into American ten year because you can go immediately into these kind of more interesting cities that have a bit more of that, you know, old world charm that I think draws a lot of us to Morocco. So that's usually the first kind of tip. I tell people is if you can don't plan cuss Manca plan to any other city. You can there's another solid reason for this as well beyond his cause of Lanka because the of block airport is the busiest also usually has the longest custom. Lines. So for example, if I'm flying into Casablanca, I I don't think I've spent less than an hour on the customs line there. It's it's almost nearly always an hour long for me to get through customs there. Tanger- takes me ten minutes. Marrakesh stakes me ten minutes. It's been rare have had to wait more than fifteen minutes in for customs line in any other city. So this is this is kind of like just a start your trip off on the right?.

"You know, these things in some ways that kind of date a guidebook, but on the other hand when traveling a country like Morocco or a lot of African countries. I'd say in particular where you don't always have internet and things can get confusing very quickly. It's nice out have something right there. You know, whether it's like, a PDF, ipad or something or paper copy. You know, it's nice to have some sort of reference said. To kind of give you that that a center, you know that? So sometimes we need when we travel, you know, absolutely. I I mean, how did you end up in Morocco, e because the only thing I know about your story, and which is very little by the way, which makes us really fun for me to have this conversation, and that was really intentional because I did some research, and I looked at your website. But I'm like, I don't want to go to deep on this guy. But it sounds like you have been a lot of different places all over not. And you were living in a small village in Morocco. You said you move there in two thousand nine why did you move to a small village Morocco in two thousand nine almost made? The better question is why did I move from San Francisco in two thousand. Okay. Why did you do that? So so. Myself. I live in San Francisco have been there for a couple of years. You know, like a lot of people probably that tune in to not only this podcast that you run. But also on the location indie podcast like a lot of these other people had I just wasn't very content with my office job. You know, I was, you know, put it into kind of my nine to five didn't see myself in that office culture too much longer. And so I was looking for something else to do. And I'm doing what were you doing there? I was editing. I had a job as additive for a wire service entirely boring job that basically means I was the last line of defense and the dark arts of press releases. Tell long did you work there? Two years added tears there, and it was okay job for an office job. But that's the problem. I was still in office job. And I wanted to do something else. And I had my master's in English by then. And so I was looking at maybe ten English somewhere and originally I was looking around the US didn't even really think about going overseas at all. But the only jobs I can find in the US where out on the ocean islands in upstate New York in Watertown, just awfully eerie some community college there. And I thought man if I gotta be this remote in the US when I'd be really remote the world. And so. My surge to South Korea Thailand, this whole kind of southeast Asia, and Ana unaware kind of a plan for one job in Morocco. And keep in mind, I've never been to any displaces before United Denver minutes out these Asia. I'd never been to Africa in the Morocco job looked really interesting if you know anything about Rocco, it's it's a short flight to Europe, you know, instead to our flight into in France. And I have a lot of friends already in France and size thought. Hey, well, you know, it goes really bad. For you know for a week or two. So. Yeah. So it took a job teaching there in this little village. There's a university that happens to be a Alaw on university. And it happens to run a cut of an American style liberal arts program the link of the classes are mostly in English. And so I took a job teaching literature and composition there.

Now he runs the travel blow code indie, traveler and sharing budget travel gods alongside tips on packing and gear. And Morocco is one of the destinations that feature on the spot and Merrick has broken down of his the into three key areas. Yeah, I think what I did was probably so I spent spent a month in Morocco, and it struck me that there are some sort of tin routes that people usually might want to consider. I think there's sort of the standard trip seems to be Marrakesh the city of Marrakesh and the Sahara. Those usually go together in a one week experience where in the old city for a while, you know, exploring the markets, maybe staying in Riyadh. One of those traditional sort of. Almost palatial a little hotels with the courtyard. You go through the Sahara that's like one week, sort of classic Meralco experience. I would say, and there are two others have clusters of. Popular destinations went into north closer to Spain. You can even get there from Spain with the ferry and one further to south, which you can reach quite easily. If you fly to idea, for instance, which is kind of a resort, seaside resort place. Not using my kind of thing I like to explore and discover in the country, but actually it's really well connected. So from there you can do trip around to south very easily. Not many places where you can put sand dunes, betas mountains and desert into the kind of top five it has going for it. It's pretty unique. Yeah, it is. I think Morocco is great. Actually, it's it is a very unique this nation, and it is so close to Europe as well. I mean, I'm from Europe, so it's easy for me to get there. But auto listeners, we might be from Australia, the United States. It's a really great add on to if you're visiting Europe anyway. Because it's just so different you, you go there and just culturally. It's completely different and just visually as well on these desert towns and and these markets and everything is is a whole different little world. It's, it's I like to have these sort of immersive experiences when I travel, and that's really definitely possible in Morocco, whether he in the Sahara where it's just sand stretching out as far as you can see or you're, you're going through a little towns market place, and there's just so many smells and spices and different things going on there so much tippety. So that's just that's just I think one of the most appealing things about Morocco. It just feels like a very, very unique in different place.

But did you get into that because he bit of an adventure travel yourself? Is that how you gonna? Yes. So I guess my main particular post fifteen is. My my main sort of goal would would traveling was to do something predominate around surfing and action sports related, say surfing, snowboarding, mountain, biking, the sites now being not fatigued. Well, there's plenty on it, and obviously these cost is about Marocco. So I had a bit of a such on what is happening in Marocco outside of the markets and outside the Sahara desert. There are actually music festivals, and there's a big sifting coach surfing now that the module drought rather than serving in the two together, it's amazing of I'm originally from from from London and. We would always have friends and all I or golf on on satellite trips. And I'm, we'd plan and setting occasions wouldn't want not just in Europe, but the close to London and America the the capital of surfing tag is an academic is about four hour flights from London and on a daily flights that and it's a completely different world and sort of fest time I went there, there's probably about ten years ago. And then since then sort of being back numerous times and predominate just just to go surfing because it's such an incredible place is it Mediterranean say, so it's it's on the Atlantic on on the Atlantic Ocean. It cuts in on the north in in rotten edge of ocean in in the north of Morocco breaks into the Mediterranean. But the main sort of surfing is sort of base around the central central Marocco name now. I dare and then south from the Western Sahara all the way up. There's amazing waves. And yeah, it's w on some of the some of the areas are getting a bit more Bimbo popula. But yeah, if you if you take, if you take a drive, you can definitely find an empty empty yourself. So for those people that understand, sipping tombs, what kind of breaks out I us so breaks.

I'd say the UK in Scotland is got a pretty big sane it. It's cold. He'd have fairly thick Whitson thing. But yeah, we'll all around around the UK sort of homeland Devon in the in the south. And then yes, Scotland's. Amazing, Norway, got some incredible waves. And then now I guess this will be -cations which is sort of code will to surfing destinations that people are sort of licking today. Once they've done all the ones around the equator and all that tropical kind of location when you're in back to Morocco, when they won't, what's it like in terms of safety. I mean, there's one or two that patrol, but the majority of of the surfing spots. Yeah, you're left to your own devices. The other is much more safety, but if you'll, it's sort of this this plenty of sports for beginners, intermediate, Cephas advanced said as a variety of breaks speech breaks. And yeah, that sort of. There's there's a big infrastructure around the setting that now, so people can go and stuff camps on this people all over the world all every year, coming to Morocco, two weeks, suffering experience, and some of them sort of incorporated with yoga, and you stay in these amazing camps in places and normally sort of go out every day doing doing.

"We chased after him and we just hosed every location down and shot until they kicked out and ended up shooting all of it. Practically the Tom free riding on my infinitely infinitely more dangerous than the one in Morocco Morocco. He's flat out on a highway. Yeah, it's going into straight line going to Paris on cobblestones and bike. That's not meant to perform like that was very dangerous. So heart heart mouth time as a. I was convinced it was going badly there moments. There's a moment where the stunt drivers are trained to inch their lives. And I recall a counter Reeves while he was shooting speed and he was on the highway chase, and he was worried that he might hit some cars on when the stunt guy said them. These are the best drivers in the world. You couldn't hit them. If you try if you if you get in their way, they will swerve out of is the same with mission. You know, you have Tom who's highly trained, but he stunk there's a moment where there's a car spears into Eaton's path and he'd just swerves around there. Great. But there's also there were local guys in a language barrier? Yeah, and there was one moment where you know Tom is racing through cross traffic and it. There was a miscommunication and he almost was nailed the side of this car because the guy was just not where he was supposed to be right. That was that was very, very scary. Oh my God. Yeah, you would like to think that, but what you laugh. Yeah, no, since you said there was like. I don't know. I don't know what movie they were working on. Guys are the best, but no, they were, but they were very good, don't get wrong. They were the best and going around the arc Triomphe was very, very dangerous. Thomas able to do that very safely complexity only choreography must have been astonishing. But yeah, you know, it's it's when we, when we did something like the doctor Triomphe we get there in the morning and Wade, Wade, is there early with all of those cars in content, concentric circles, adjusting their speed and and developing a system of language with them so that he can on on a whim. The center circle can go faster or slower. Everybody's kind of very, very, very dialed in, but then a lot of it is with what we had to do. A lot of it was improvisational. We got there and showed up and said, Dr. What are we going to do with the St.. Amazing. One of my colleagues park out of the screening and the motorbike Jason particular think they, they're palms sweaty. And he said, there's no way that was all Tom, there's no way all. Oh yeah. No, there's no stunt writer anywhere or stunt pilot the only time Tom's not at the controls of the helicopter are when the helicopters carrying that payload. Okay, because that's another rating that we didn't have time to. Yeah. So when you see the helicopter flying up over Henry's helicopter, that's a different guy flying copter, but everything else Tom's flying driving skydiving. There is one shot in the movie where you can't see his face and I had a double do it because you couldn't see him. He'd gladly done it, but you could you and and he had he would have really risked aggravating his ankle injury. It's that shot rolling down the roof of the, oh yeah, the the one refute where he falls away from us and hits and rows away. That's Tom. But then the big wide shot that you shows them rolling down the roof. That's a stunt guy and that's and that's only because his ankle was broken and you can't see that it's Tom. Yeah. So I'm like, why are we doing this? Why would why would you do this stunt? Don't do it. I remember Thomas, I do it. Got dammit. Oh, and we were gonna do a stunt when he's running across Blackfriars bridge. He was going to bash through the glass of breakfast. Blackford bridge bounce off the roof of removing train and body slam a guy that he thought was Walker and it was Walker would have put the tracking device on this before we established that the tracking device was actually the thing in the neck eventually phoned us.
