Our Oligarchs Are So Full of Paradoxes, You’d Almost Think They Were Idiots
"And we're going to get back to John's Muir act like right now. John? Thanks, Alvin. Well, my next article is called our oligarchs are so full of paradoxes. You would almost think they're idiots. But I'm talking about my fellow Yale grads. I'm not going to my reunion next time I've never gone to any of them and is a very good reason to that. I'm glad to be away from all those people. I moved to Texas, so I don't have to live near any of them. I certainly don't want to go to Connecticut and visit them again. But I do get to see them and feel them and hear from them because they're running the country. They're mostly white, mostly from very wealthy or upper middle class families. They've inherited wealth and privilege. And now they've appointed themselves as the tribunes who will stick up for the underprivileged. For the needy for the helpless for the people that they stay far away from and their gated communities and their ultra 1% zip codes of San Francisco and New York, they never see anybody who's not wealthy unless they're cutting their lawn or taking care of their 1.2 children. But they do know that the people between the very poor and themselves the very rich are disgusting filthy racists who are full of hatred and bias and bitterness and need to be disempowered and disenfranchised and controlled and vaccinated and brainwashed and guided and directed. Need to have their children taken away from them as soon as possible and raised by the state to believe in the same things as the elite, because they really don't want to go through the bother of having their own children. They want to take offs. So in my piece it's stream dot org. I talk about how is it that we get such a monopoly of opinion? How is it that America's elites, America's oligarchy? Members of what I fondly call the hive. How do they obtain attain this hive mind? How is it that everybody goes overnight from thinking masks or useless to masks are absolutely necessary that travel bans from China are racist overnight to you can't go to church, you can't go to the store. You can't work in your office. How do they manage to how does a lead opinion manage to be so unanimous and so absolutely so
John Zmirak on the FBI's Plan to Investigate Parents Over School Board Meetings
"Well. It's always a happy part of my week when i get to talk to our friend. John muir john's miracle. Welcome to the program. Hey are going to talk to you. No matter how grim the subjects were yes. Exactly a what. What is on your mind. What are some of the things that You know today is wednesday We're in the middle of another strange week. What what are you. what are you thinking. Well we just learned that the fbi is going to investigate parents who go to school board meetings to question what the teachers are instilling joke. Yes that's mind-bending is it not mind-bending i mean this is. This is one of these things that i guess. I took for granted that everybody in america knows that the government has no business getting between parents. Their kids never unless there is violence. Horrible violence how dare. How dare they imply that parents shouldn't no. i mean. look in loco parentis. We have schools public schools because we can't teach kids in many cases so we say we're going to hire people to teach kids. How did the government take this over and try to shove the parents out of the way. This is completely. Un-american is completely wrong. And i want every american to know. This is utterly unacceptable. Don't ever let school boards or governments pushed around when it comes to your kids as it is right now. The the is the enemy. Okay the fact that the fbi and the department of justice can be used to exert pressure on individual citizens trying to get involved in local politics. That's what school boards are the most local organic natural form of politics. The healthiest thing in the world is for people being involved in the decisions of what happens on their local government including including local schools with that said public schools. Were always a terrible idea. That public schools were created in the late nineteenth century by progresses like horace mann. Who explicitly said. They wanted to teach children to be less conservative less religious than their

"muir" Discussed on Dog Save The People
"Much for your time today. Thank you very much. As someone who's love following sally's ever evolving cystic vision of dogs. It was so exciting to speak to her and learn more about the impact of dogs on her life.

It's tia that dogs are ultimate news. Not only could she not imagine how life without them now. She couldn't even imagine how art without.

"Element to all of the murders which is like who would have a motive who is at the various scenes of the crime who is messing with the other characters as they try to embark on these challenges as a couple of different characters who have motives for wanting to undermine this whole operation. And then you're also dealing with gideon inhere owes relationship Which is built of built on like twenty years of really intense abuse and trauma and comes to a head with like. I read this Article on vox by constance. grady I think did a book club series on this for vox as well and did a series of the types of tropes that you are kind of encountering in this book and one is bath till bonding which is definitely an automated trope where two characters end up in bathour a pool or something to it sort of it. That scene happens in game of thrones actually with jamie and what's her name the tall knight. Yeah that one. You know what. I'm talking about And they hire you know yes. It's all night all night and they share their stories. And that's where you find out a bit more about herro 's tragic back story story how it has influenced who she has been as she's become a young adult in our princess and what it means for her relationship with gideon they come out on the other side of that relationship. I found believably bonded. And there's a lot of different re ways to read their relationship. I think there are some reeds of this novel. That read it as way more platonic than i think muir intended he has. She was talking about that in in an interview. And saying you know when it's a when a man and a woman everyone's like hey when they gonna kiss and when it's two women they can be making out on screen and then everybody will be like what a what a cool sisterly relationship that they have with each other. Yes it's true And i it never becomes a romance novel but the characters who have love between them it feels way more to me like the love between like heroes in ancient greek epics which is both like this which for all of history has been read as a mix of like platonic and intensely like you know achilles like homoerotic love and stuff like that that people do or don't want to see when they are reading those stories. You know sure But it seems seems like she knows what she's doing what she's up to and it does feel intensely intimate and personal between them so i i don't know how you would miss. That sure sounds pretty gay. It.

"Then we'll solve the puzzle and this is like the first time that these two bitter their entire life rivals and of working together. The magic that ends up solving the puzzle is okay. So you're a necker manser. You work with bones all the time. Imagine if you use them imagine if you used your powers on a living person. What would that be like. And that's not something that are bone mansor has done before so herro sort of like uses her magic to go inside gideon's head to like knock control her but see her senses. And it gives gideon week inside out No more like my gratitude. Well pixar movies. It'll be routed to i. I mean. I guess you're seeing through. Her is the way that the feelings do inside out. So maybe that is valid but then gideon gets like zombie weak point vision and can find all the glowing weak spots. Because of the neck roma's alpha power. Yes and she uses it to kill the goal. They get a key and so there are other keys. That other partners of people have been getting the lady dulcinea. Who is that week. Lady who gideon sorta develops the hawks for and dulcinea is kinda flirting with her the whole time which is bumming out sexton who apparently has a history with her. That comes back at the end. The book they they do this other challenge that involves like siphoning another person's soul to get extra. Mp so that you could use it to prevent entropy field from killing you all the magic. It's not. I saw an interviewer. I think. I think it was mirror. Who said you know like wizards and sorcerers and dnd the difference between like magic that you learn out of a book. Imagine they're like just comes out of your body because you're yeah merson overall. It seems like muir is straddling the to the magic seems as as you watch people use it. It seems pretty intuitive and flashy and you know a little anime at times but on anime yes thank you. Excuse me. I've been say brown's neck roenick romance or any way you want but it is automated. Thank you we have. House newsouth rules they. It is very academic One of the reasons. Why the middle of this book. I think could be impenetrable to some readers is because it hinges on a lot of people talking very high falutin academic e- about death. Magic and gideon has no access to how any of that works like. She knows that it works. She knows that people can do it but it is not a thing she can do and so it's just a lot of people just talking about that a lot. 'cause a lot of the puzzles. There's eight puzzles that they have to solve which represent the eight different types of magic skills that they have to learn after they've piece them all together they will figure out how to become a lichter and then they can serve the god king. Of course. there's a monster in the basement that seems to be killing people. It may or may not be controlled by or doing the bidding of one of the sixteen people which is where it becomes an agatha christie murder mystery And so there's this like fun.

"muir" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Okay. So john miers in yosemite and he decides that he needs a little bit of work I think he stayed the first time for like ten days and a lot of people who know some about john muir name associated with the assembly and the national parks basically think he showed up in yosemite and never laughed and live denied there. That's not true. No he lived there for about a six year period. I think yeah. I don eighteen six seventy six years of his life. Yeah so eighteen. Sixty eight to eighteen seventy four. I believe yeah and those were about like california just totally rocked his world. Yeah once he got out there. Yeah because he was living in indianapolis so i mean basically anywhere would rock your world but imagine showing up to california in the mid nineteenth century or late nineteenth century and seeing it. Yeah and especially if you've I remember when i did my big out west trip years ago with my best friend for like four months in the summer driving through utah and arizona and everywhere there's just so blazing hot and then when you drive over especially southern california california you drive over that mountain range and it's like someone turned on the air conditioning and i just remember thinking like man imagine what it must have been like for westward expansion when they finally got into the l. a. basin. Yeah we're just like whoa staying the l. a. basin. Yeah i mean you go were that mountain range. It's just the pacific ocean breezes just kind of locked in there while it's really hot on the other side of then Yeah like death. Valley is hotter than okay till. I'm not. I'm not up on my california geography. Germany's landlocked kimmy. A break it's very lovely and cool near the coast so So yeah. I can imagine what it must've been like as like a nineteenth century something like that but he When you're got there as i was saying He he stayed for like ten days. And i was like i need some money and he went back. I guess he he hits varietals. Walked back got some more money and then he came back this music. I'm staying here for a while. So he got working as a sheepherder. One of his first jobs was hurting. Two thousand sheep up into the sierras. So much fun about He hated it. He learned to hate sheep. He called them hooved locusts and he started to despise sheep because he thought that they had a an A disproportionately bad impact on the natural surroundings eight they did they they kinda ravage similarly to a large degree right so he came to kind of see livestock as an extension of human occupation wild lands in how detrimental it was and it really occurred to him during this i little few month period where he was a sheepherder. Yeah and i think. Also the horse in The horses that lead people on expeditions and stuff yeah they also overgrazed and the cattle overgrazed and they were logging and yosemite was i think it was under the The care of the state of california is a state park at this point because it had been gifted by Well my gifted but it was a land grant. From abraham lincoln in the middle of the civil war to california. He said. i'll tell you. I mean do for you. You take semi but it was It was really mismanaged and just I mean compared to what they're doing now is in a pretty bad state. Yeah which is one reason why john muir was pushing for it to become a national park so that it would be right here of the federal government who hopefully would enforce the laws of preservation. A lot more than california had so he shows up in yosemite he starts shepherding he but more than anything. The thing that he became known for was these jaunts where he would become like the first white man to scale cathedral. Rock right He would like you know all these formations or take samples of them and send them back to like the newly forming university of california He would submit. Botany like descriptions like used basically is like exploring yosemite and documenting the whole place while at the time Taking notes for what would become a series of books essays like he really made his name as a writer like he made a career for himself just as a writer we think of him as like this conservationist naturalist and that's where he was coming from but at the time he was a successful writer and after he left. You cindy yes. I mean another big kind of central relationship for him was a man mandate robert johnson who was editor of century magazine in century magazine. Very much a sort of a progressive naturalist rag and he And we should say this. You know we're not like this is the most interesting parts of his life like he also worked for a decade or more on Once he got married he married a woman named louis Louisa wanda strength in eighteen. Eighty and her family had had a couple of daughters. Wanda and helen and her family had a fruit farm. A fruit ranch he lived there in martinez california And kinda quit doing his adventuring for a full decade and ran this farm and worked as a farmer so all the stuff was going on and then Robert underwood johnson. Basically doggedly pursued Moore and said listen man you gotta we need you. You gotta start writing again. 'cause you're the foremost naturalist in the country right now According to me and only me right and we need you to start writing stuff and start pushing for political change and he was working on this farm this whole time and eventually he was like all right. You know what do you what do you got for me. So the reason Johnson saw them out was because he made a name for himself view while he was still living in yosemite. Yeah like you can kind of look at mirrors life like he went in got all of the experience he could possibly need. And six years living basically the that whole stretch in yosemite with and then went and in like an use that experience. Is that like a nomad land reference. Living deliberately yeah now wasn't that Throw oh yeah woods deliberately living deliciously from the whigs but but it was basically like imagine if like you had like a crazy six year period in your twenties and then you spent the rest of your life exploiting that writing about it talking about it and making a name for yourself being caused celeb- from that experience that's that's basically what he did. Yeah i feel like there's a lot of people that did that. Sure who else. I don't know. I can't think of when we a great example. He went and lived in walden for what a year and that was like. We're still talking about that guy today. That's true and i've even heard that walden pond was like town was right there. Yeah it's like the the pizza hut next to the pyramids kind of like that. Sorta so mueller Another big important relationship that he made was with a president named theodore roosevelt and the theodore roosevelt is known for The two hundred and eighty million acres of federal land that he protected among other things but moore was a big reason why i mean. Roosevelt was into preservation. Anyway it's not like moore came in and completely like change his mind about everything but roosevelt knew about him and and quite literally said i would like you to take me camping in yosemite for four days. He said just the two of us. didn't they have to.

It's the opportunity to make money when third parties use their names and images. Mark emmer president of the ncaa would recommend college sports governing bodies. And that's a rule change by july first allowing just that as first reported by the new york times the ncaa has been dragging its feet for decades with division one sports bringing in an estimated eight point five billion dollars a year. The ncaa has barred compensation for players. Other than scholarships and educational stipends a policy bohannon and other players have pushed back against this year around the hashtag. Ncaa property majority of athletes are minority and most of this revenue. That's being brought in by. These athletes is being redistributed to the coaches and the head administrations in these athletic programs. The fact that data's haven't been able to see any of this money is civil rights issue and went also driving the ncaa in this is the fact that many state legislatures have already passed or are considering laws that would allow student athletes to cash in on their talent and popularity

There is now this industry of algorithm auditors being brought into tow companies if there is bias in their work cannot be a solution. Or are these problems to fundamental. I think there is absolutely a role for algorithm auditing to play in the ecosystem when it comes to accountability and understanding the capabilities and limitations of ai. Systems but what. I oftentimes see when it comes to algorithm make auditing is it's done without context so if you just audit an algorithm in isolation or a product that's using machine learning in isolation. You don't necessarily understand how it's it will impact people in the real world and so it's a bit of a catch twenty two and so much as we don't know how it's going to work on people in the real world. Should we deploy it is why you want to have systems like algorithm make impact assessments. Because it's a question of looking at the entire design. Is this even a technology. We want if it has some benefits. What are the risk. And importantly are we including the x. Coded the people most likely to be harmed if these systems that are deployed go wrong and i think that is an important place to include people right then beyond our ethnic. Auditing we really have to think about redress. So you can audit the systems right. You can do your best to try to minimize the bias. Try to minimize the harms. But we have to also keep in mind that the systems are fallible. There will be mistakes in the real world. And so what happens when somebody is harmed and this is part of ongoing work. We're doing with the algorithm ick justice league to look at. What does harm's redress look like in the context of an ai powered world. Where do you go when you're harmed and we want that place to be. I'm the algorithm. Make adjust asleep.

We're going to be talking about the importance of writing your own scripts Natalie and I discussed this a little bit in our catch up earlier and how to break through some of the narratives up artist from truly the moment we enter this world I'm sure most of us can relate to feeling like we could or should do things differently. That the way things have always been done is not how it has to be but these national natural curiosities within us are a lot harder to take action on especially when the world is telling you otherwise. So we're going to unpack this team today with Alexandra Myard, an award winning researcher business owner and marketing coach who believes in empowering entrepreneurs and professionals with the knowledge and clarify focus to help them make good strategic decisions. But Alexandra wasn't always at the stays in her life. In fact, over a decade ago, Alexandra left her PhD in literature to transform the way. is done through her skills and passion for stories that connect people with the products and services that can change the World Alexandra comes from an upbringing of barriers. When she finally broke free from the conservative cult she grew up in, she found limitations in other spaces like eah in corporate. America she has an incredible story to tell and we are so excited for this space for her self expression or grateful for her to be here, and we can't wait to see how took control of her life in rewrote. The story had low Alexandra so much for being with us today. Hi thank you so much for having me. I love the mission behind what you do and I'm so excited for this conversation. Yes, we are to let's dive in. You talk a lot about breaking barriers for free thinking what are some of the ways you've been restricted in thought leading up to this present moment, right? So Beautiful introduction share it a bit I grew up in an environment where. Along met playing by the rules and in a pretty intense way, mean a lot of the people. When I when I speak with my upbringing a lot of people know the reference to the Doug on TLC and that's an easy way to kind of explain the sort of environment where I was raised in. That's a really easy reference point. Where everything I said so war dead absolutely everything was scripted for me mentors their security in being told what to do by it. It comes at such a cost this. Question belonging can be really challenging for anyone in families and work environments and. I find that for people you have a marginal variance in community that there can be a lot of challenges when it comes to business as well, and this is especially true for people colored under diverse people with disabilities. List unfortunately goes on and as a queer woman as while I have experienced some mice. Really, shouldn't of belonging is for everyone and the narratives can hold us back are ones which are well worth questioning and for me, that's the heart of it. So when we start questioning the things, the ideas, the beliefs, the way of being the ways of doing win that becomes problematic or in worst cases such as no way I was raised when questioning is forbidden the not. So really clear sign that the community isn't giving space for coming either free you for someone else and it for those fit in the question is, do I stay and make myself? Or do I leave in create space. Assault and that's where entrepreneurship really comes into play for me and winds are passionate about it and in many many ways that is part of why you might upbringing in such a question environment to such a gift because it actually made thinking asking questions very. To me for anybody like the forbidden is so tantalizing an attractive at classic human trope and because I wasn't allowed to think independently, it actually made it really really interesting in exciting to do. So I love how you are coming from this perspective of it being a gift to you that you're able to take it in that way because. That is exactly the perspective that I think is that launch pad that enables you to change the narrative or at least begin weaving different story for yourself. Yeah absolutely I. Mean I'm just really starting to see the gifts that are. I think that win an environment and I consider my upbringing a very dangerous environment when it's so dangerous that you just need out there's no real. It's important not to put pressure on yourself too early to see the gifts but to really feel the challenge of. Process of transformation by in hindsight that is one of the most beautiful gifts of going through something is that with time and with healing and with. Ross and with creating a safe place to look back. There the past to who I am today. So clear to me and I wouldn't be here. If, it weren't for that. So of course, the posture that is the most healing. Is One of gratitude you touch on this a little bit before but groupthink is obviously extremely powerful and weighs heavily on us from a very young age. So it's not easy to break through the ideas that had been woven into us from early on what was the voice in your head as you transitioned out in broke free from limitations in your community in academia and even in corporate America like just I would be interested in knowing what was going on in your head and how you talk yourself through this. The after me, he doesn't my head has always said if I don't do this will. It's always been very clear to me that independence and finding our own freedom. It's actually a collective journey that if we take the truth pass to our for ourselves that. Enables others to do so somehow being empathetic and mindful of the ways in what my journey might help others down the road was a huge motivating factor for me in irony of is I had to become an independent thinker to breakthrough of group. Thanks. So even though it is such a lonely journey in many ways, the motivation was very much that I'm doing this not just for myself. The values that I believe in freedom and honesty, and that requires resilience fortitude in a willingness to go it alone, and there's a lot of stories of the bad things that happen to people who go along we see it everywhere in in my case with the Christian narratives, the Prodigal son was the parable I was raised with that honed the idea that it isn't safe to go. On Your own journey. So wanting especially when thinking about rewriting scripts or writing our own narratives, we wanNA deeply about the narratives that had instilled.

Wow this was by far the longest botanical excursion. which Mr Muir made in his earlier years it it was by no means the only one he had bought an is around the Great Lakes in Ontario and through parts of Wisconsin Jason Indiana and Illinois on these expeditions? He had disciplined himself to endure hardship for his. The notebooks disclosed the fact that he often went hungry and slept in the woods or on the open prairies with no cover except the clothes he wore.
