Photographic Literacy

"Here's the editor of Lens. Work Publishing Bruce Jensen. Let me confess right here at the beginning of this podcast that it's not always necessary to know where you've been in order to look ahead and know where you're going but it's awfully useful sometimes to know the history of what it is that you're about to attempt and to know how other people have tried to do what you're about to try to do and to learn from them as they say if. I've seen farther than others is because I've stood on the shoulders of giants. What would this in mind? You can imagine my reaction when the following story occurred. I was attending a photo review session. I was doing reviews there and I was looking through a body of work from a young woman and in the course of normal conversation talking about her work. I said well. This work reminds me a lot of the work of Edward Weston which I intended sort of a compliment but also to indicate to her that what she was doing wasn't necessarily as new and innovative and revolutionary as she thought it was and I was absolutely nonplussed. When her response was who's Edward Weston she had previously explained that she had an MFA in photography. So I wasn't quite sure how to respond to the fact that an MFA graduate in photography had never heard of Edward Weston and didn't know who he was explained a little bit about Edward Weston and the history of photography and she then explained that in the program that she was involved in she did not have to take the history of photography as that was an elective in her program. And I I suppose that's okay but as you can imagine. I was a little bit discouraged by that. But I've softened over the years and I realized that maybe maybe there's more to this than meets the eye because the problem is there's no limit to that train of thought. Okay so maybe you've heard of Edward Weston but you haven't heard of Mortenson okay maybe you've heard of Mortenson but you haven't heard of Ph Emerson. How far back do you go? How much knowledge do you have to have? How obscure a photographer is necessary. In order for you to have what might be considered a legitimate excuse for not ever having heard from of course. Edward Weston's very famous photographer but fame is also something that is curious in this regard. For example I just recently discovered of novelist from the nineteenth century named J S Fletcher. I'd never heard of J S Fletcher and turns out. He was during his lifetime practically the most popular crime novelist of his generation. Rivaling Sir Arthur CONAN doyle and Sherlock Holmes. And all of that J S Fletcher wrote two hundred thirty some odd books and I just discovered I'd never heard of him never heard him referred to in any conversations but yet in his day he was incredibly popular so the farther we look back in history the more some people are going to be obscured by nothing more substantial than time and collective memory that does not however mean that photographic literacy is unimportant in fact. I believe photographic literacy is very important. And here's a good demonstration of why I think so a few weeks ago as in my local library looking through some of the books. They had for sale as part of their fundraiser. And I found an interesting older volume called the reader's digest reader. It's an anthology selection done by Theodore Roosevelt. Not The president. But the president's son I think Published in nineteen forty. The president died in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so I'm assuming it's Theodore Roosevelt junior who died nineteen forty four. According to Kapiti he anyway so Theodore Roosevelt Junior along with the editors of Reader's Digest. Put together this election published. This book and Roosevelt explains in the forward that he'd stumbled across a box of old copies of Reader's digest which tempted him and he says and I quote. I sat reading back copies for hours every time I finished an article which was off my main course in which I shouldn't have taken the time to read. I thought that I'd read only one other well. At least only one another and then another short run that followed it and another subject piqued my interest and lured me on. Eventually he continues. I dipped into an issue ten years back. But here the interest was even greater the forgotten world came into being not reminiscent Louis but with touches of unmistakable reality. I was astounded to find. How much of the past decade? I'd actually forgotten and how much more I remembered only vaguely. Yesterday's heroes and manners changing social complexions penetrating vignettes tell the story of Art Politics Science and business to find. These things is to have passed before ones is the cavalcade of American Life. And as you refresh your memory. Here's the key phrase by the way Roosevelt says and as you refresh your memory you improve your present perspective. The current scene gains new significance. Close quote what a marvelous way to look at work from the past and couldn't everything that he said about these articles he was finding in old copies of Reader's Digest. Couldn't they apply equally? Well to looking back. At the history of photography that is to say if it's true for the stories in Reader's Digest. Wouldn't it also be true for photography and it motivated me to go back and look through some of the jewels that I have in my photographic library book that I haven't pulled out for a while and I was amazed at what I found for example? Some of those books that I may be purchased thirty or forty years ago seem much more relevant today than they did back then because they were looking ahead in such a way that now in the benefit of hindsight we can see how right they were. And how brilliant? The photography was in. How far ahead of their time? Those photographers were other books. Do don't fare as well. There are others that I have in my library that I looked at from thirty and forty years ago that now I sorta scratch my head and say I wonder why I was so motivated to purchase those books in either case as Roosevelt said the current scene gains new significance. So there's a reason to look back at what other photographers have done. And what the trends in photography have been and we need to recognize that not only is there value but there's no end in that because new photographers from the pastor. Being discovered all the time their archives are being uncovered think. Vivian Maier and that kind of story. But also there's a lot of people a lot of historians who are doing research and discovering really terrific photographers who weren't popular in their time. Maybe they had no audience very small audience and now in the perspective of time we can look back at their work and see. How really terrific was so the idea of developing photographic literacy as a part of our creative life I think is incredibly valuable. And here's another example of why while I was doing all of this digging through my library and looking back I ran across a reference to Henry. Fox Talbot's the Pencil of nature which I had heard about thirty or forty years ago I've known the existence of this very very historically important publication but I never actually looked at it or read it and partly because I didn't know that it had ever been published although I have no doubt that it probably has been

Construction worker at new Raiders stadium tests positive for COVID-19

"What we know about the the construction site Adelie gin stadium and this person that had been that a contract to be a coronavirus well Paul soon as the news broke from our colleague over at fox five in sappy ends I will get on the phone with a couple people that I that I know and have first hand knowledge of the construction site on a daily basis and what they told me was that this this person who tested positive had only been on the job site for two days was in sort of an isolated area wasn't around a lot of folks so they weren't overly concerned with any kind of spread but once they did find out that he tested that she tested positive we don't know the gender of the person but when that happened they told us that initially they they did exactly what the CDC guidelines call for which is making sure that they closed down that portion of the stadium construction site and they cleaned it completely disinfecting it they have stringent protocols on the on the project consistent with those CCD CDC guidelines is what the statement from the construction company Mortenson McCarthy said and they reiterated what our sources told us earlier today and we talk to you about over on CBS portrayal of forty which was that it will not close or slow down the project that area where the person worked with and sounds like still being cleaned and they were waiting but other than that the project rolls on Scott Gulbrandsen joining us here on cakes and teens got you would you answer my next question to almost completely there in terms of time frames for the stadium to open up obviously with with sports leagues in flux the raiders and the NFL certainly want to make sure that that that that all their projects including not just here but in Los Angeles we're going to push forward on time have they had any other labor issues at this stadium and in terms of set backs or in terms of equipment that we heard about earlier this year that may delay this past what they hoped was going to be an opening date of the end of July no Paul actually they they forge ahead if you go out there as I do often and see the the the progression of the site of course the roof is continuing to be put in place those ETFE panels almost seven seven yards four excuse me seven football fields worth of of tiles are being put into the roof right now so they're working to close that roof but meanwhile inside the stadium things go they have not had any supply issues they have not had any issues with slow downs with any kind of new wrinkles knock on wood for them this of course with the pandemic happening probably most of us have had at least one degree of separation from someone who's been impacted directly from it and so this is a case of that happening thank god it seems that this was one of those projects that balance the fine line between how to protect the public yet keep commerce moving in this state where the governor and granted this project and other similar construction projects to move forward it just doesn't seem like it's going to set back vats order from the governor doesn't know it does not in fact I mean if you look at the other big projects happening around town Paul that you talk about resorts world of course which also had a worker tests positive last weekend that project roles on the MSG sphere continues as well as major transportation products for a projects throughout Clark County in the state of Nevada those were all deemed essential by governor Steve Steve Sisolak and they continue because with the rest of the economy in the rest of the state shut down those essential prop projects I needed to move forward and they do you know that anything can change but it looks like all full steam ahead on

It's Sundance Time Again

"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas in for John Horn. But he's actually sitting right here beside me because by the time you hear this. He'll be at the Sundance Film Festival. John Thanks for taking time before you pack your bags my pleasure. I love the fact that I'm here but I'm not here John. There are dozens of feature films film screened at Sundance. Of course tell me about some of this year's most anticipated entries. I'M GONNA lean towards documentaries if you look at the movies that are nominated for the documentary feature academy me where this year three of them premiered at Sundance a year ago. American factory honey land and edge of democracy. And if you look at the very first night at the Sundance Dance Film Festival. There are new documentaries from producers. You might have heard of Barack and Michelle Obama. They've called Crip camp which is about the disability rights movement. There's another documentary about Taylor swift and about why. She is becoming a little bit more political and that's just in one theater in one night. Well one of the documentary entries premiering at Sundance that I wanted to ask you about It's when it's trying a lot of controversy and that's the Kirby Dick and amy during documentary on the record. It focuses on the sexual assault allegations against hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. The film was being executive. Co produced by Oprah Winfrey set to be released on Apple. TV then Winfrey suddenly. He withdrew support and some say. It was under pressure from Russell Simmons. She denies this and says it's because of questions arising from one of the alleged victims. What's to become come of this documentary on the record? Well it is going to show at the festival I mean I think there is the question whether or not Sundance was going to pull it The fact that Oprah Winfrey withdrew her support that apple. TV Hit pause in. The documentary is very unusual. And Kirby and amy have said listen. We think we've made a really good good film. We don't understand what they are complaining about. All of the edits and suggestions up until the time. The picture was locked where minor little things it does feel feel like Russell. Simmons complained to Oprah about the documentary. It's unclear if Oprah thought it was unfair or that featured one woman story over others the Booze GonNa show but for a film to go to the festival with this much. Uncertainty is highly unusual. Yeah not to get too far afield on this but I wonder if Oprah pulling away from this the project could somehow damage her own brand in this in this era of me too. Well I think she has said that. She believes the women who are accusing Russell Simmons of sexual assault and harassment. So I don't think she's saying I am not believing them anymore. I think she has to her. Mind legitimate questions about the documentary. Yeah it is important that she is on board or not on board because her producing does suggest that there is a level of quality ability and credibility to it and the fact that she's leaving it does ultimately damage. I think the standing of the film Another film to ask you about. Was this four part documentary. On Hillary Clinton Clinton. It'll be available on Hulu. She will also be attending Sundance for the first time to do promotion for this film. What you know about it and you know any any buzz around it? I guess I know a fair amount about it I'm GONNA be doing. QNA With Hillary Clinton at the festival is a four part series. That has a behind the scenes footage of her running against against Donald Trump. But it's really about her political career and about how things stand today so words at all. Hillary is a participant in this documentary. It s you said she'll be at the festival and she'll be talking with me. She says a lot of the documentary. I hope she says even more when we sit down to have a conversation. There's one other film I wanted to ask you about. And that's a a little film called feels good man and it's an indie production looking at the rise of of this comic pepe the frog that was actually created by L. A. based cartoonist and it sort of became an emblem for the outright. Who took this image and kind of started using it for antisemitic means racists memes all kinds of really nasty stuff? What do you know about the film and Are you going to see it? Yeah I'm definitely going to see. The artist is named fury. And it's about how something something becomes an icon for hate. And how the artist behind that I contract reclaim it and I think if you look more broadly at a lot of the documentaries that are playing the festival a lot of them are about what's going on in the world right now. There's a new documentary about the kids who survived the park. Land shooting about what they're doing to fight against against Gun. Violence US kids. I think that there's another documentary called early. Bird it's about the helicopter news pilot Zoey Tur and about what her works has about the tabloid of news and the Oj. Trial Voice State is a documentary about seventeen year. Old Boys a thousand from Texas says who join up to build a representative government from the ground up so wherever you look Especially in documentaries. There are a lot of films about the current state of the country. And what we might do to fix it. And what are some of the feature films. You're looking forward to checking out. I know that things that are kind of top of our sundance card include downhill. This is a remake of the movie force majeure a Foreign Language move from a couple years ago it stars. Julia Louis Dreyfuss Will Ferrell. It's made by nat facts and Jim Rash. Who did a movie called called way way back not that long ago Vigo Mortenson who is one of my favorite actors hell yeah written directed stars in a movie called following that I think is partially in Spanish? So there's nothing Vigo can't do. There's an Anthony Hopkins movie based on a play called the father. There's a movie about Gloria Steinem in many different iterations directed by Julie. Taymor you might know her from the Lion King. You know the other thing that we should talk about our number of movies that are going to sundance that are looking Ford distribution and one of the things that a lot of people forget is that Sundance is not only a film festival. It's a film market and it'll be really interesting to see given how a poorly some of the movies from last year as well at the Box Office if the checkbooks will be open s much as they were a year ago.

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma

"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play.

The 2019 Oscar Narratives, Explained

"Guys. We're here to talk about the Oscars primarily one of our favorite movies of the year. That is also maybe not going to do very well at the Oscars. I'm talking, of course, about a star is born which has eight nominations, which is a lot the second most of any film that is nominated here. But for some reason, it seems like a star is born is not the front runner, not even close to the front runner in this campaign. We go back to Tober there were very few films. That were in the race stars born arrived instantaneous hit instant masterpiece. A+ cinema score from fans. And then what happened you and share your own predictions from October about a star is born while we're doing it or I am a full and. I publicly stated that I felt like a star is born had a significant chance to go five for five in the big five categories something that has happened only twice before and not since silence of the lambs so five for five, of course, is best picture. Best director best actor best. Actress and best screenplay. Vigo Mortenson was like hold my beer. He came through along with Rami Malik and bohemian rhapsody and Roma later premiered on Netflix. And we find ourselves in a place where it just seems like a star is born might not win anything. And we've been flabbergasted by this. Why did this happen? There's a Oscars narrative way to do it where you're talking about the order in which things came out in and whether or not they captivated a certain words narrative, but then there's just like you do have a question about a star is born that I had even when I saw it in October, which is is this movie too depressing. And I it's not like the favorite fills me with the humid- the spirit of humanity. And like, I just fully believe in our power to overcome all obstacles after seeing that movie but four a favorite like this like stars board. I do wonder whether the ultimate feeling people leave that movie with is devastation, and that's not like Romo Roma you leave kind of feeling like we're all in this together. Despite what? Whatever class differences there might be. And I know it's been criticized for that. But I been trying to get it this for a while. And I keep coming back to that. I will say I was surprised by the number of people who were surprised by the ending of a stars. Because it is the fourth version of this movie. And you know, it's cannon the narrative at the same like ace. It's it was pretty obvious. What was going to happen like without having seen the movie and also it's very what's going to happen in the movie about an hour in. But it did. So many people were surprised that I agree with you. It seems like people weren't really prepared. They didn't know that this was coming and they were affected by. Yeah. Yeah. But this isn't the hallmark channel awards. I mean, it's it's the Oscars. Like tragedy is a part of major best picture winners. All the time. You may recall infect just last year that fish alien was murdered at the end of the shape of remember how it happened. So it's not like this is it would be the most shocking thing to learn. And this is of course, a spoiler. And if you do not want to star is born smooth for you. I have no idea while you're watching this video, but Jeff. Jason made of course, takes his own life. Yeah. And I don't know. I think that that's an interesting theory. And maybe in this moment people want to feel good. That's certainly something. We've heard about green book and bohemian rhapsody to some extent rising. Yeah. This year. I don't know. What do you think it is? What do you think makes this not the front runner? Yeah. I didn't know the ending going in a young person. Who hasn't seen the other version? Kill welcome. You represent the large. Yeah. And I didn't walk out of the theater devastated. I was like this movie was great that I our ripped. The songs are amazing. And I wanted to win everything. So I mean, maybe other people had a reaction, but I don't know my theory. I guess, and I think this is just like the larger conversation is that like Bradley Cooper kind of bungled the campaign early on. And now is trying to fix that too late. Let's talk about that. So Bradley, Cooper course in the movie came out did the traditional round of pray. There were a couple of feature stories about him. He did some radio interviews, some podcast interviews, and he sort of trotted out the same two or three. Oris over and over again. And he kind of held the line at the way that he was going to talk about this movie. And he resisted journalists demand to kinda give all of himself as it about this story and your life that drew, you know, what was the attraction tonight. Yes, it's important to note rather Cooper has a long history of doing exactly this. He has never been comfortable with the press and never been comfortable selling himself like great Philadelphia. He definitely felt as if he was protecting something. And there was specifically in your times magazine feature about him that sort of used his withholding nature as the point of the story that identified that there was something about how Bradley Cooper hates this. And it's possible that that turn people off to this movie. I'm a little dubious of that. I think that there are some other factors in play. But I don't know that strike you was what was really going on. I I agree with Kate. And it it took me a long time to get to this realization. I think just because I felt so personally attacked by the lack of success of stores. But it's something seems to have clicked with Bradley Cooper because in the last few weeks after not winning anything the Golden Globes. And right before nominations were announced he showed up in Vegas with lady Gaga to sing shallow live credible. And then after he was snubbed for best director. He went on Oprah and talk show Oprah about how sad he felt. And he was like. I felt like I didn't do my job. And so at some point it clicked for him. I think that he needs to be doing the Oscar circuit, you know, it is a circuit. It is about campaigning and glad handing and kissing babies and voters and talking about how much it means to you. That's why Glenn Close is going to win this year, for example. And he refused to do that. And I do think it's affected it. I think he also has a Duke problem. I think the fact that this was the number one seed so early needed the team to knock off you know, what I mean? And then going into this even though obviously within our bubble. We have a ton of affection for this movie and probably a deeper kind of emotional attachment to it the maybe any of the other best picture nominees. I think that it was always there to lose for them rather than to win. So the first words you see in the trailer are filmed by Bradley Cooper. It's like they were presenting this as a masterwork by an oh tour early on like in September, July whenever that trailer. I came out, and I just wonder whether that's too. To long to defend your ground. Like, it's you've got to kind of have a story where you're like nobody saw green book coming and here it is stars. Born was like we start at the top of the mountain top at all you can do is drag us down. So Amanda, you identified the course correction that Bradley Cooper is trying to orchestrate right now, we're only a few weeks away from the Oscars. The voting has just started. Is there any chance that February twenty four th comes and Bradley Cooper strides upon that stage raises the Academy Award aside, both his friend Todd Phillips who also produced movie says we did it on top of the world, or no, I don't think. So I agree. And I don't want any part of it is not wanting to get my hopes up. Then crushed for months. Now, we've been doing a whole podcast in every week. That's like, no, no. I the other thing this happened once before though, we should say. Yeah. Argo famously did not get the best director dominated and won some awards, but not every word and was not necessarily. The prohibitive favorite a few years ago. Ben Affleck, of course, did not get nominated for best director, nor did Bradley Cooper and then Argo one. So could happen. It could. Here's the other source of concern for me. And I think one of the reasons we thought in addition to it being a wonderful movie. But we thought it was going to be a favorite in part because there's this old saw about Hollywood loves movies about Hollywood. And this is technically about a musician, but it is about fame, and it is in like a long Hollywood tradition, and we thought oh sure OSHA this, you know, it's a shoe it and for a lot of different reasons. Some of which are now my favorite the argument about Hollywood this year has shifted away from the content of the movie into how the movies are made and who is voting for them and what they're voting for. And I kind of think like the old traditional Hollywood voters have found themselves in the green book camp and defending a traditional Oscar Hollywood movie. By green book, then by a star is born. And so I just think that those votes will go somewhere else. Chris lemme pitch a hypothetical teacher. Soares born wins. How close are you to the reaction? You had when the eagles when the Super Bowl are you running around the room screaming? Fuck green book and pouring down your throat. I think that I would be satisfied. I think it would be satisfied with the stars born winning. I think the problem they is just seems like it would be fine. You wouldn't be pumped no-one no-one who's voting is pumped. And that's the problem. The problem for the problem in part of the problem. I don't have a vote. Okay. So let me throw. I don't wanna get too far off. I would be more happy more emotional more excited. If Black Panther one now, not necessarily because I think Black Panther is a better movie than stars born. I think it's apples and oranges. I just think that like if we're talking about what it means. I would be more into that. I more emotional Super Bowl. If Black Panther one.

How Germany got to 40 percent renewable electricity

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Germany reaches forty percent renewable energy. What can we learn from that energy transition? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hutler. This is climate cats. Germany produced forty percent of its electric power from renewables in twenty eighteen emissions. There are on pace to fall sixty two percent from nineteen ninety levels by twenty fifty. That's an unthinkable greenhouse gas reduction pace here in the US. But in Germany, many say that's not fast enough. Toby mature is founder and director of energy consultant e three analytics in Berlin, we talked via Skype about power and emissions trends in Germany wind power is the largest slice of the pie. But one of the remarkable things of Germany's overall energy transition is that they've succeeded where a lot of other countries in a lot of other parts of the world haven't done as well. And that's really diversifying as fully the different sources of renewable energy that they draw from. So it's not just wind. Not just solar. They've really gone for the full basket of domestically available renewable resources. So Germany is well ahead of the US. With government action on climate how about public opinion on climate solutions. How is it different? From the US awareness is dawning more and more that climate is starting to have very real impacts on things like agricultural output. Yeah. We had our dry summer in decades in Germany and a lot of farmers have seen reduced yields pretty much across the board. And when it starts to really have those kinds of across the board impacts on rural communities on farmers on on on average citizens through higher food prices people. I think recognize the need here more. So than in North America. I think in general for really taking action on climate change. I think in Germany in particular. They've also seen the benefits of taking climate change seriously by investing in the energy transition. They've been able to create a lot of jobs, and that I think has been really critical ingredient to maintaining public support at such high levels us. Site, Germany as a leader in the energy transition much farther, along than the US, what can the US learn about what Germany has done so far one of the key ingredients to making it work and also to making it popular has been the citizens can invest themselves. So it's not just large utility companies or large foreign investors building big projects to achieve the goals at the government sets out in the beginning. The whole transition was driven very much from the bottom up by individuals and communities and farmers who could put their own money on the table. Go to the Bank at alone and invest in new sources of generation and earn a decent return doing. So I think that's really one of the key ingredients that many other countries have continued to struggle to get right is making it such that the participation can be broad in the energy transition. And I think that's really at the heart of what's made Germany, so successful Toby tour founder and director of energy. Consultant E three analytics in Berlin. Thanks for sharing your insight today. Thanks ball. A pleasure. My name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And that really is kind of what catapulted how we approach energy conservation and sustainability in Warren now, you know, you've traveled over to Germany you've learned what they're doing. And it just gives you some credence in what you're doing back in your community. People are interested. It's a conversation starter are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. I mean, there's climate change is happening. Of course, you can have lots of different conversations on your thoughts on climate change. But something is happening. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is that could make a difference for future generations. I don't know. What's wrong with them? That's climate cast.

Movie Review: “Green Book”

"Which I said, let's see I'm looking up here. I said I watched green book, and it was about a white racist who teaches a black guy how to be more black and how we'd all be better off racists in the victims of racism, just got along. Better your enjoyment of the film will likely depend on your receptiveness that message. And I literally thought I think I'm only my leagues agitating. When I literally thought I was just stating the text of the film like that. That is what I thought the movie was trying to. Say a lot of people were like criticizing me being like, you know. That's super harsh. Dave. And I'm like that is what the movie is like it's Viggo Mortensen plays a racist. There. Mercia Lally plays a black pianist going through Jim crow, south touring and and being subject to racism and the to kind of teach each other. Better understanding if humanity, and I think Mark Harris did a great job of running down like what's wrong with movies like green book, which they feel like they are out of I dunno late eighties early nineties. Right. This kind of by this. This type driving. Exactly, right. The like driving miss daisy. Both sides have something to contribute to the conversation. Like, oh, like like, look at how much we all have to learn from each other. You know, like. I'm sure I can imagine somebody who was big in Hollywood in that period. Looks at this way. Now now, the white guys driving him that's the movie, I know. And so it's not I mean, it's certainly I can understand why people find it to be an offensive film. And in fact, the the relatives of Dr Don Shirley have since come out and publicly denounced the movie, they have said like this movie contained they called it. A symphony of lies is what they said face like everything about the movie is that it is a gross misrepresentation of their relationship because like a big part of the movies about Dr Don, Shirley, the pianist and how he's like so disconnected with his family. And and he doesn't like he feels like a like an outsider to his own race. And it's it's Viggo Mortensen 's mildly racist character that helps them to reconnect with his like, it's all this stuff and his. The real life on Shirley families like well that never happened. None of that was true. But at least it was a symphony of lives. That's correct. The poster will say a symphony. No, I don't I don't know if they're gonna use that poco, Jeff. But in any case, I mean, yeah, it's so it's not even really that accurate and the story as it just it just feels like it's from a different era. Feels like we don't really need this kind of story anymore. We have other choices today about you know, how we've you these types. I mean. Yeah. There's there's a more diverse slate of filmmakers behind the camera. These days that can tell stories like this and from a different and more interesting perspective. So poignant views like, you know, more nuance point of us. I will say when I first saw the trailer for this. And I was like oh, my Herschel eilly. That's so that's interesting. This looks cool Vigo Mortenson and then Peter Farrelly. And I remember we talked about project greenlight a couple years ago. I will never forget how Peter fairly treated producer EFI Brown. And like, you know, she's a really well known and very prolific. Black producer. Yeah. And she's made a lot of stuff and Peter fairly would not show her any any instance of like respect or like there's just like a like subtle racism going on there.

"But the way that they choose to portray them strikes me as this incredibly simplistic and very reassuring portrayal of these people now the world in which they live is about Vigo Mortenson, driving dot Shirley acclaimed classical musician through tour in the deep south and along the way, they encounter a lot of racism. But what I thought was really frustrating was the way that the movie is desperate to make Vigo Mortenson have like off blood him off the hook in every. Conceivable way, they show him being racist in one moment in one scene at the beginning of the movie. And then after that that his character is gone, and he has nothing left to learn other than dot Shirley's, pretty cool. And maybe he's right better letters to his wife. That is a really frustrating thing for me because he ends up doing all of the work that I see I end up seeing him teaching dot Shirley, kind of everything he ends up teaching dog, Shirley, how to appreciate black culture more than dot Shirley does. And there's something that strikes me as frustratingly condescending to give that much effort. This movie is trying to create a parallel between class dynamics and racial dynamics in the mid twentieth century by saying that Vigo Mortenson as an under educated white working class man is on the same level as Dr Lee's socially. But what the movie never addresses is that in order to be on the same level as this under educated white working class, man, Doug, Shirley, literally has to be one of the most accomplished human beings on the planet and the moving never address. That inequality. Okay. I will say this. I see your point. I do see your point. But the movie works on every every other level that okay important level. But that is that is an important. Of course, it is. I said, I see your point. But I've seen the movie three times now. And each time. I saw the film. I was definitely struck by. Yes, the chemistry between Vigo Mortenson. Herschel Ali this movie has a lot of heart as a lot of humor and just like instant family. But for different reasons, it is a feel-good crowd-pleaser the movie was made for about. I think like twenty three million over twenty eight days, and what I love about the film among other things this how refreshingly straightforward it is. There's nothing flashy. No, gimmicky editing, cutting techniques. It has told the story. There's something refreshingly old fashioned about the way it's told and the directing style of it that they don't really make movies like this anymore and here one exists. It is a movie that does make you feel good and the end. They don't sell it this way. I see why they wouldn't. But in the end, it is actually a Christmas movie is strict it, okay? It is a Christmas movie. And I think that when you have other movies on the Blake Bush the best Christmas films. Like, I mean, even die hard is listed as it should be as a great Christmas movie. I think that green book will be seen as soon as work yet, more work. It's out about it as a great Christmas movie. And I get I agree with you. I see that the scales are definitely tipped. It's not a balanced learning process between FICO Herschel in this movie. But overall, I just felt it was so irresistibly charming and endearing and I did feel the heart of it. And you know, it does feel very mainstream. And I thought the Peter Farrelly who has with his brother Bobby has done like something about Mary. Dumb and dumber shallow. How? You know, I thought it was great to see him do something that still had humor plate was strengths there. But he can do a dramatic at direction as well. I thought it was very quotable and going back to the topic. You're talk there Perry. It is a movie that I will absolutely see over and over and over again, it's a movie that if it's on cable if I ever decide to get cable back, and I'm coming across. If I flip it across it. I'll leave it on. I can't wait to get the Blu Ray. I can't wait to download it to my my tablets by computer my ipad. I just love the hell out of this movie..

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate challenges and opportunities in Africa. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast. You know, it's fourteen thousand miles from Capetown South Africa to Minnesota but climate changes in sensitive climate zones. Like Africa can have a much wider impact. I talked about that with Matt Brown. He's the nature conservancies regional managing director for Africa. You know, a lot of the East African countries are seeing significant changes in the rainfall patterns, maybe as predicted to get quite drier. And there's a lot of food security issues and north and central Africa. So Africa's a big place Paul. There's fifty four countries over two thousand languages as you know. So it's a little bit of different shifts and impacts in different parts of the continent. So how do you decide which countries need the most resources we looked largely at where we can improve large intact systems that have the ability to be more resilient to climate change. And allow species to move and shift protection is has a higher return on investment than restoration. So a lot of our work is focused on. On finding intact ecosystems, and they all include people, of course. But finding ways to make sure that those systems persist over time like many journalists this year met we reported on Cape Town's, low reservoir levels earlier in the year. I'm curious about your perspective on how that played out this year. And as the rainy season finally arrived, similar to California. There's a lot of issue with agricultural offtake both for fruits as well as for vineyards. And then there's the consumption domestically the days euro proclamation in Cape Town brought a lot of awareness to water issues and water scarcity, but I think it helped create more willingness for behavior change, but the threat is still out there as it was yesterday. So we're we're moving out quickly to put better adaptation and better practices in place to try and secure water for the long term. And I asked this question to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways. But we're seeing climate change impact the hydrologic cycle where it's raining and how hard it's. Raining is shifting. How important is water in the work that you're doing water is critical in the work that we do. And so the changes in the hydrologic cycle as a result of warming. Global temperatures can be pretty catastrophic unless we are able to reduce that amount and manage the movement of wildlife access to water for people living in urban environments and have better buffer systems. I do feel like that there's a lot of positive interventions that we can pursue but the water cycle, and how hydrology is potentially going to be impacted is quite severe. If we just sit back and maintain a business as usual scenario, Matt Brown nature conservancy regional managing director for Africa. Thanks for sharing your perspective today. Thank you, all my name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And then they come over here. See what we're doing? You know, one of it uses low hanging fruit that we learned the first year we were in Germany was they don't have any paper products, plastic product styrofoam products. So when we came back to the city, all we removed all of that. So now just kind of started it, and then now we have a mandatory curbside recycling program, but are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. When we were in Germany, you know, they would always say five hundred years from thousand years from now they're not doing their energy transition right now because of the here and now it's for generations later. And I guess that's why I think that this is important. Also is I want my great great grandchildren to enjoy the same quality life in northwestern Minnesota that we have and in the whole country the whole world. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is could make a difference for future generations. I don't know what's wrong with that. That's climate cast.

Finally, finally, got it out there. Can we play some Marcus Peter sound for the audience? This is a little bit uncomfortable. You're going to hear the media relations director around Marcus Peters is one of the few guys anywhere around sports. There aren't many of them's to guts where you get one of these guys who's a bit too real to make anyone comfortable like, you know, this guy is friends with marshawn Lynch somehow. I know they take the subway or they take public transportation home from a raiders game. The Rams have two of those guys to leave is another. Yeah. Well, Marcus Peters is very honest. And he hasn't been very good this year. And the Rams are collecting all of these wayward souls these free agents on defense, and here's Marcus Peters assessment of his own play. And he's the one who was beaten on that. Michael Thomas touchdown. That was. Omayad to Joe horn final seventy two yard played Michael Thomas, Kat, what were you seeing on that? And how did that go down from your side? Third down six shot up. Dan press came back based on. Based on. Start down to six man. Look back. No stand up. I can play better.
