Each coach will have a different students and after every round Two people will be eliminated on the around. One person will be eliminated. The winner won't take a price home that will average about four hundred dollars probably That would allow for them to purchase some equipment or maybe we might give them some equipment instead of getting than the actual money Each row will have a different dynamic but really the bure ship gathered through.

"To all right. I kinda wanna again to your solid music so Let's start your creative process. So how'd you write a song will i. it depends. Sometimes i have a conversation with producer and let them know what boban or all spit averse or something or a. Sometimes my producers would send me something all the stuff that ends up in. Spotify is stuff that that is produced by my producers. All the stuff that ends up on soundcloud in doesn't end up on spotify. This now might be stuff that i got from youtube so usually go beat. I listened to it. And then i start spitting random shit on it so by that i mean i make a bunch of noises. That sound like words are words. So like if i'm like you know that that debt added a dedicated to like you know it's choppy flow but and then you filling with words especially just four like patterns is just poor for Having a rhythm and usually getting in there in terms of writing. It really depends on what i'm making I like to put in substance in some my stuff. I like to put in writing Everything that i feel in a way that makes it original to me like how attract that is unreleased where I have let me let me already is some of the lyrics Walking on a rubber street step in like a newborn kid enamored by the coloring mother. Do you know this bit even post this notion apple watch at every turn out every light at every turn out every light. Please stop and on prepare. Oh my rock not to the chorus. My feet and i couldn't even prepare fish sticks in the eden on talking circles. Fuck ahead of fuel. My kidneys spinning in in every human legend. Fable based upon my sin i oppose. Lucy sang her teeth on me like cannibals. The feeling tilted walson dug a hole and saima particles and moses parts of cease. I say who seeks gulliver's and vow or a hidden in the crest of the light of all so that was a verse that arose about an a had a while. I was high while You know. I looked at the world from a different len and it has a lot of metaphors that are very low key. And they're a lot of speech that things very particular to me and the already matches a lot of the stuff that i've already created so i write from a spot. That is very genuine. I want to say so. Listen to oh omega omega the flow up and then all sir throwing stuff. I like to switch up the the flow as much as possible. This part of what. I do But eventually here. I'll be making just like an old old track. I'm just wrapping rapid just to you know just to give something to the people who don't really like listening to the lyrics as much as i do a but gray processing how you the songs i can tell that you have a great process because you're right good music. Good music equals could process as my thing hopeful Also i've made five dollars out my rap music. I mean like twenty five. Have you count the cipher. I one on. I got us a complacent rep head so offer got you ever. That's good you may twenty five. That's amazing she'll i mean i've also i've also made a. I made some money from. I think it was like forty dollars for thirty five dollars from From bulawayo be. So i mean something near one hundred dollars for music. I mean it's something it's more than some people get to say so Think brown is beating you. Yeah ron i mean man. I have a lot of strong feelings of our own I say a lot of things about ron. it's like. I don't know i don't care. How much money. Ron makes off of buzek of affleck advertising stuff for a he creates a label or whatever He's not gonna last. He's not that talented. I think that is writing is not good. I think that he's very corny. These really cheesy An told him that he knows that he has no substance. I don't think he's capable writing with any substance. He's very mechanical mine. And his creativity in terms of writing and then wrapping is not. It's not where it's supposed to be for somebody who claims to be elite. What they do just because you can wrap fast doesn't mean that you are actually genuinely talented and you know. That's where i'm at i'm i'm generally growing As an artist. I'm i'm trying to learn new things and trying to hit an away or you know a making stuff that genuinely hits a different demographic and no amount of moves. Their role makes no manav of money spends on himself from his job. He's a grown man. You know He's abusive romance. Essentially making little kid mos and the fact that me being the age that i am I write a million times better than he could. And to be honest i rap. Millions has better than he could. I'm in he says. I think he's told me once john server Whether he say he was like a corrupt circles around you. And it's just funny to me because just because he can wrap fast. That doesn't mean that he could right circles around me. I left i. I've i've had conversations with a lot of people where we talk about where we talk about his lyrics and we just laugh. I mean i could show you some of the stuff that he has and it's just it's it's just not good writing it's it's just not good rounding is this really really corny The whole everything he does man. I think he's really corny. I just think i. I look at i. Look at the stuff he used post actually have to add to follow him on instagram. Because like looking at histov made me feel very weird. Is it wasn't. It's not good. Not good. And and i don't care how good he is producing. I mean i'll give him his props knowing how to produce knowing how to mix. I don't think her so good I in i don't think it's because his music's not good. I think it's because sorry. I don't thing it's because his mixes are bad. It's because his music is good. Because i've heard mixed stuff for other rappers and i like it you know. I think he's mixed. He's mixed one track for me. He roses has mixed by him in on a pay for that but yemen. This there's a lot of things that are just a bit shady for him. And i feel like if given the chance. He'll take advantage of anybody to get his music to blow up and he can say that it's the game or whatever or that or that. That's the way that goes.

"Like close to two years ago. Fucking create. yea. Yeah if in it goes. I mean time i'm really fast. I mean when. I joined rapid. I had a funny because i was like that was like two girlfriends ago measuring timing girlfriends. I get it. Yes two girlfriends again mckinley. Living oh mon now if if my my girl so pretty crazy am tough lice. Now i never thought that i'd still be talking to people from rap had especially like newbies Or like newcomers. I know that you guys don't consider yourself newcomers. But because he has been there for a minute. But like i i was back. I wasn't rapid bhagwan leg. It was really active. Now it's just a bunch of lake seven-year-olds you know so rap. Pat is just like dying as like a. Yeah like there is still cool on there. But like there's no one on rap had that i cannot contact through dischord so like it really does not. The only thing i use rat for on a regular basis is Is writing because talk about the forums. You want the writing his like Probably the best thing. I've come across in terms of writing lyrics since i'm not an. It's it's pretty organized like that's for writing. Raps only yeah. I'm not really good at organizing and google docs so gan owned a. Did i agree. I mean that's honestly the only thing that keeps me coming back to wrap. At is the fact that i have so much of my stuff written there that it's kind of became like the way that i produced music now like the way that i that i make music now is i can wrap had i play a b and right on their structure that i read everything got start backing up my things from rap padding case like rap had ever like shuts down right. Yeah definitely definitely. Yes i get the. I should probably do the same thing to be honest. Just imagine brat pat shuts down one day. It will eventually shut down as milton. Takes over something because amir has not been doing great. But you know what i mean. Things have rap had will shut down one day like nothing can relapse relate. Everything will shut shut. Shutdown one day youtube will shut down any anything on the internet cannot last forever but rap pad. i can see it Not being a thing. With and years again i think well you know time passes people older rice all the people that are here making music writing. Who knows maybe a good lake. Twenty of these people will actually eventually pick up a microphone and start making music. That's my hope for the website. That is one thing that has gone into it. Is that the kids that are on pad. All rap had all day every day sale. It if if they grow up and they start making genuine music in a look for people who came on a here to for support or or guidance. It's their let me tell you. I can speak from the perspective of someone who just joined rap had and Since like i'm not. I haven't been all wrapped pat long enough to where that's too far away but i've been on here long enough to where like a i'm a pretty mature now compared to back then but when i first joined rap had like mid twenty nineteen it was it was really toxic. Like for first thing. That happened is Is like comes in like the retard comments just like even though at the time that fucking sucked. I do kinda credit like rap pad being so fucking mean to me maturing. A tiny bit quicker. Yes i mean. I had to learn how to deal with it. You know Like like sooner rather than later. That's trapatonni not condoning bullying though just Just saying like I'd i would be different now. If i hadn't joined rapid the way i found rap pad was even like accidental. Because i was. I was searching for a place to write. Lyrics like exclusively write lyrics and not anywhere to post the lyrics but I found rap pad and i started writing. I noticed the battle like tab. And then i went in there and i did a random battle figured out how that works. I worked and i found a random. I found out of randomness. Like i found the forums and all spiraled down from there but like two years later like a nine two years later. I'm actually making decent music just wrapping on beat. I'm i have. I when i say decent. I'm saying decent compared to like the whole spectrum white mainstream artists like the worst the worst decent writing decent according and stuff like that number. I get you. I mean credit to rep had for for bringing people together like that to be honest. But i mean we're sending like rap hanover tyson at the moment right so we should probably from for reva. Musically was up all right. Let's get into okay. Oh this next one and this is one of my favorites. This is one of my favorites. So what would you say were bigger would be your big inspiration in the music game earth. Oh man Well it's it's fluctuated. I think at the beginning. It was eminem for obvious reasons. I mean the guy you know. He was one of the first ones to really really really really put rob the heaviest. The mainstream i in my opinion You know. I guess you have a guy like guys like outkast and all this but to this day an eminem hotel like a lot of streaming records and rap music so you know it was probably first and then as time passed and they started to this cover other things it was like big sean and like kendrick. Now j. d. earth gang Yemen In this just starting to you know. I started to open myself up to a lot of different music. That also inspire me to go there places like i. I plan to take some singing classes at some point to to expand the range of things that i can do because a how a lot of creativity that is a bit Stagnant in terms of actual production. That comes out of that creativity. Because i don't have Certain skillset anaheim certain skill set. That would allow me to to make certain type of music like singing So i'll get their back. Sorry my internet was out bugging out so what it is. Yes so. I was just explaining.

So let's start at the beginning. Says the be kind of a refresher to everybody is in case. People don't know so last time for those. So how they journey with music star for you knew started for me I moved to the us. When i was in the fourth grade i moved from mexico the quantum mexico and moved up knowing no english and so i was just listening to mexican music. Then may my moves out to listening to like you know preppy You know music those popping back in the day like fucking young life that the whole track. Yeah i like bangers in my head right and then I moved onto him and namco. There's this girl in my class that used to ride eminem like crazy and You know stuck in a minimum for awhile. Started listening to each of his old stuff and new and i realized i wanted to do a little bit of rap in the tunnel was already in lake relief. Seventh eighth grade when my english. Was you know a lot better. I actually decided to start making stuff from my computer. I would play a computer. Outplay beat them. A computer now plays so loud that the microphone on my computer will catch the sound and then our on top of that would also wrap allowed.

Which is embassy. Microphone that. I'm using right now in avenues since my sophomore year till now on the little graduated in. Hopefully pretty soon here. Upgrading the microphone. This'll hasn't sentimental value to it. Definitely that often. That's an interesting backstory. Now in speak from experience of starting off like on my own and then having people notice my passion but that's a a lot later thing is how long have you been doing it from the start till now. How many years has been honestly It has started in like eighth grade. So that's by five years now. Five six years five six years. I've been wrapping all in all not even just like taking it seriously. I started rapping three years ago and only very recently like within the past year are is anyone starting to notice like putting my family.

Yeah did i definitely get you the with looking like computer computer. You can download music making. That's how i was too. So i feel that that's exactly what it used to. He used to be a noble. That's what the brand of the computer was time. Jack cut out in. yeah. I think all right. Let's let's move box. I don't want to have any expenses while fixing what's going on Was pointing us.

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

Ultrarunner Clare Gallagher speaks up about climate change
"Gallagher knows about determination as a professional trail runner. She competes in hundred mile races over rugged terrain and when she's not running. She's focused on an even bigger challenge.

They hit together. Like a su- nami where i had this privilege to run in mountains across the world seeing landscapes that i never would normally see and knowing that so many of our ecosystems are imperilled right now due climate change knowing that my own president was beginning to roll back climate regulations. She was compelled to act so she began contacting her elected officials and using social media to engage others. She also hosts frequent events where she talks about climate. An air pollution clean air. I think should just be a way of life. There are miles to go in the race to limit climate change. But she's determined to stay the
Caring for someone with a mental health condition
"Number of resource is are available for you or for those who need care. It is incredibly stressful. Dealing with a loved one spouse sibling apparent. A child who is dealing with A mental health issue. And while you deal with those issues Please don't forget to to preserve preserve your your own own mental mental health health and and for for our our clinicians, clinicians, and and and and you you know, know, I I before before we we talk talk a a little little bit bit about about self self care care I I want want to to talk talk about, about, you know the danger of caring for somebody who has Mental illness or is in a mental health crisis because that can impact your own mental health. And that also has to be preserved. Doctor stroll, do you You want to talk about that a little bit? Absolutely. We have the metaphor. We used that when we're on a plane, and if the air mass come down, they say, Put the air mask on yourself. If you're a parent, put it on yourself first, before you take care and put the air you know the mask on the Children who family members around you. And so it's ah, a good metaphor to use that the mass we're using now included But it it's just take care of yourself. It's very important that you're doing that self care and you are allowing yourself not to feel guilty or feel bad about that that we do have to create and carve time for ourselves. You're coping to care for the loved ones around us, especially if our loved ones are going through a mental health crisis right now that we want to advocate them for them. We want to support them. But you also have to make sure that we're helping her. Ourselves. Dr Jones. You know, that kind of goes back to what you were saying in our opening comments you know about the impact of the stress is not just on our loved ones, but but on us, too, is we're trying to care for them. You know, there are several coping strategies that we can use the five senses for if we're parents or care givers, working with someone or loving someone really Was coping with a mental illness. We can look at old pictures. We can read books. We can squeeze a stress ball. You can pet your animal a nan Immel or companion and stretch your muscles and one thing about stretching muscles. It's really very important to get good sleep. 7 to 9 hours a night is a really wonderful Sideline, and if we exercise for 10 to 20 minutes with stretching or yoga before we go to sleep, chances are we'll be able to sleep in a more sound way. We can smell fresh flowers. Oils, Campbell's perfume. We can listen to music. We can meditate. We can listen to nature sounds, we can find those on YouTube with no problem. And when we're looking at Movies or TV. You want to stay away from news that can be compounding when we talk about stress and maybe even a focus on some of the things that make us laugh. Because laughter can be healing actually, and with regard to tasting, we can eat. Minced or horrible teeth. All of these things may seem rather simple. But they're very practical ways to bring joy into our lives. And that's a good way of keeping balance when they're trying to care for someone who's in crisis, and Dr Tobias, you know for a parent, you know that that has a child that is is struggling. And certainly we've seen that happen with the With the remote learning, Um that's a pain like no other for a child for a parent to see a child suffer. Absolutely, because you know you're emotionally connected to your child. So you're going to empathize with them one of the things I would have to say that parents, you know we've talked about you know you take the health care. I agree completely. Seekers. When you're empathizing with someone, you're feeling their feelings, and so if you're kind of like taking on their emotions on top of your own difficulties. That's really going to put you over the edge, and you're not gonna be in a position to help anybody. Um, one of the things In addition to those other wonderful suggestions is for people, not toe neglects social connections, You know, Ironically, that's something that was difficult. That's what's causing our stresses that we're socially isolated from others because human beings are social animals were meant to be with other people. And so if you're handling We're trying to handle. You know a stress within your family. You can't do that alone. I really have a lot of empathy for single parents, um, and who are dealing with kids with mental health issues. And they need to reach out. You know you you you know, the expression takes a village to raise a child. Well, unfortunately, that's true. It does take a village to raise a child. You know, a family can't do this by themselves. So, you know, reach out Tonto. Their family members toe unison, the support groups that have been mentioned. Um But I really hope that no parent feels like the burden of caring for the child is on their shoulders alone because nobody can do this alone in parents need to reach out. For the support from others. Well, and as we saw talked about in the in the very beginning is you do not need to suffer alone it and you know, as As a parent who has dealt with some of these issues you know, with with a member of my family, you think when you're in the middle of it, that it's you're the only one that this has ever happened to that nobody could possibly relate, And there's a shame that there that's involved and there's you know there. But that is so not true. This is more common than I think people even believe. Right, And that's a great where where NAMI comes in the national alignments of mental in this like you mentioned, we have support groups for families, and what we like to say, my colleague says, is that self care is giving the best of you not what's left of you. And when we have our family support groups and you go into a room where you've actually see people come in and their tents and they're scared and like you, said, Eric, They think they're the only one there. The first person who has a loved one. Who's experiencing immense illness and you sit in a room or in this case, you sit online and you see the boxes on your screen and you hear people who know what you're talking about. Who felt what you felt. Who's seen what you've seen. You actually see people, their shoulders come down. They start to breathe and going to support groups and NAMI has three family support groups online a week. And three support groups for individuals who live with mental illness every single week. You know, you have to reach out and like you said, Eric, you're not alone. We say nominee Jersey that you are not alone. And at this time, it's particularly you may be socially distant. But that does not mean that you'd have to be emotionally distant or isolated. We have new ways of connecting and some of the amazing things. And opportunities we have through online is we have support groups now where someone from Bergen can be giving advice to someone from Cumberland. And that wouldn't have happened before this, So I really encourage people to understand that you were absolutely not alone. Especially now. You know, you might not be able to You know there's huggers and us here, miss Hugging, but you can reach out and a lot of different ways, including online and really looked for those support groups because there are people who know what you're going through and are ready to help you.
Bob Dylan Sells His Entire Catalog of Songs to Universal Music

Remembering Our Belonging
"And welcome. Some really glad to be with you. Were exploring tonight part two. It's a continued reflection on belonging and the pathways to belonging and as you know as social beings belonging the urge for belongings in our dna and the research. The growing research on our need to belong is. It's very very striking for us. Human jr that how much the sense of connection having active relationships impacts our health our happiness or longevity and it's true for poor for wealthy across all populations our relationship and feelings of connection matter and as we know of course there's all sorts of unhealthy versions of connecting heard. One story of these three novices in i see side monastery and they got caught in a kind of minnie's nami and got stranded on an island They'd been voting got stranded on an island hundreds of miles away and so after keeping themselves alive for several weeks they found a cave and it had zafy. who's in it sitting cushions. You never know on on these desert islands and they sat down in the spirit of the cave began communicating in an echoing voice. Saying you know you found your way to the funk spot on the island and you properly assumed often i will grant you three wishes as the first i one of the novices will my wishes to return to the monastery and vish he disappeared. He was gone in the second set. I two i also on return to the monastery. I you know wanna learn at the feet of my beloved abbott shusha. He was gone to and the third side. You know these friends have been my song my community. I miss them and i want them back rush. So as you know when we don't have a secure sense of belonging we develop either. It's unhealthy attachments. Were kind of like codependence. And the and the like are we move more. Towards avoidance were. There's aversive nece towards others and we either push away or we withdraw ourselves yet if we step back and we really look in the deepest way even when we've had bad formative attachments even when there's a sense that are belonging has been severed through harm from our caregivers and trauma and the way the society treats us three reality is. We can never be removed from this web of a living dynamic energy that we belong to the reality is our living forms are inextricably embedded in this natural world. I read a an interesting article in the new york times This is research. That's been done in deep forests and how there are fungal threads that are connecting all the trees and all the even trees of different species throughout the forest and they're responsible for communication between the trees and the flow of nutrients often from the older trees to the younger trees. We are made of an embedded in this living world. You know our deepest nature is that basic aliveness an awareness and love that really gives rise to this world so we're reflecting on belonging and the gift when we intuit and trust star. Nate is a very profound sense of peace when we belong when there's that sense of one nisar connection. There's nothing out there that threatens us. Everything's part of our hearts and for me. The best words that describe belonging are feeling totally at home. You know at home for me with my life in the world. there's a sense of being part of the living world part of a presence. It's larger than our small self and also one with that larger presence so we're holding the world in our heart now. Some of you may be listening right now and what i'm saying sounds abstract. You know just otherworldly and yet most of you have had tastes of true belonging. It might not have had conscious tastes because we we tend to kind of skim over those moments and re fixate on fears really quickly yet. We couldn't long to belong unless we had some taste of it. So you might sense when you've had tastes for many of us. It's when our minds stoop quiet down. It doesn't happen often but it can happen. Perhaps there's a sense of belonging when there's that absurd. Your wave for of loving for a deer one could be outside that wonder at the stars or gratitude. When someone's kind you know maybe a feeling of care compassion. When there's someone who's hurting
Christmas in Holland
"Let's start with what the holidays were like growing up in the netherlands. That's where lisbeth enhanced was born and raised. Thank you said. I should go on radio. Yeah i think so. I'd love to hear what. Christmas is like in your memory. Let's pretend your five year old girl in small town in the netherlands and christmas eve what do you what did you just do. What's happening tonight. And what happens tomorrow. Oh well you see for us. Christmas was really a family. Feast because probably you know in the netherlands. Originally we never had gifts at christmas. It was the real religious holiday and a family holiday. In my case. I remember my mother started. Prepare the house to decorate it and she had little planks and we put mawson eat with a wire and then we put all kind of green leaves like hawley and other little objects to decorate the house and we fixed it on the wall and we put it on the table and then of course we made the wreath for the front door and then you were hoping it would be snowing on the right day. Because i remember the connie fear the big tree in our garden when there was snow on each and my father would put lights that was magic and then just before christmas. My mother came up with the real christmas tree. And you know when. I was really very young. We had real candles but the clip ons real candidates under the tree inside the house yes and there was a white sheet on the floor to protect the four and then there was a basket with water in case the tree would be set on fire so it was only allowed to light the candles when daddy nami were there and we hardly moved of course because there could be a fire but it was magic to see all these flames burning and then we got it a beautiful dog and it was too dangerous so we had to put electric lights but it was still very nice now for a little child. Who is there a santa claus figure that brings the gifts that seat because christmas without presents because our santa claus is called sinter glass and he has his birthday on the sixth of december. So that is the real exciting. Feast for gifts. And i really. I would be willing to set up an association to save that son abrasion. Because i think it's the most beautiful feast in the world. Why well first of all as a child. You believe in santa claus. He is bishop coming from spain on the big ship with his assistance. Who are black pitas. They are funny dressed and are doing funny things at croats. They are little bit naughty. And you're scared of him because he is the one who could eventually put you in the sack if you hadn't been a nice job but year cintas class is keeping book and he's writing in the book if you were good or bad sell. It is very well organized into netherlands because about three weeks before the six of december which is his birthday. He officially arrived on the big ship in amsterdam and this is transmitted on television. So you are looking at it because you know once. He's in the country. Your parents will allow you to put your old shoe at the chimney. Of course many people had central heating of a problem. But you find a solution you put your shoe in front of the door or whatever anyway. Some problems for a child to believe in san nikolas because one hour later after yet seen him arriving on television in amsterdam. He's arriving in your village as well and so you say to mother. How is that possible. So then she usually explains you while there is the real warm and he has assistance because there are so many children like you. The real one cannot cope with all that
Business is booming for plastic companies as demand for plexiglass surges
"One of the interesting things about the coronavirus pandemic is that it sparked a need for more plastic demand for everything from facials, gloves, takeaway food containers, and even bubble wrap for online shopping has gone up and with that demand is severely set back the effort to recycle this happening is big oil companies are investing hundreds of billions of dollars to create new plastic and companies that have made pledges to use more recyclable materials are even in a tough spot as new plastics are far cheaper than using recycled plastic for more on how the pandemic has accelerated the trend of creating more and not less plastic trash. We'll speak to Joe Brock special correspondent at Reuters. Before the pandemic, we had a plastic crisis and I think that there is an awareness about that. It's killing marine life. It's it's leaking toxins into drinking water in some of the world's poorest countries. Then the pandemic hits and we have this flood of new plastic containers from three takeaway. Bubble wrap because more people ordering in as they were stuck in lockdowns as well as the the lifesaving PPA, the mosques and the gowns and the bodybags, which is understandable but also you have this double whammy. Plastic recyclers are suffering like every other industry under an economic meltdown and they are unable to recycle the plastic and the price of oil from which plastic is made drops dramatically, and that means that new plastic becomes very cheap and we cyclist cannot compete with that new plastic. So you've got this sous Nami new plastic arriving on the scene we site closed. Struggling, and so this dynamic can only lead to more plastic waste. I. Think that's a very important thing that a lot of people don't realize or they forget right away as that plastic really comes from fossil fuels, oils and and petrochemicals, and as you were mentioning, you know to make new plastics these single use plastics. It's so much cheaper now than using recyclables. Companies that have pledged to use more recyclable materials in their packaging and whatnot, but they just can't keep up you know new plastics just cheaper for their business models and all of this can become a driver of climate change. Correct and I think this is something which has been overlooked toll misunderstood during the climate change debate not only plastic made from fossil fuels oil derived products and gas issues. A growing area for struggling oil and gas companies. People are driving more electric cars than moving to cleaner fuel. These oil and gas giants need to use up this oversupply of shale gas. In the US they've got dwindling opportunities to use this one area they put into is making new plastic for the developing world where there's a rising middle class in parts of Asia and Africa. The problem comes that these are the places who are feeling the plastics crisis the worst. So as oil and gas company suspending about four hundred, billion dollars to increase production of plastics to use up cheap oil and gas. These countries have no way of processing dot plastic. So with already a waste crisis, more supply coming online no way to deal with it what do you think's going to happen? And the oil and gas industry are planning to spend about four hundred, billion dollars over the next five years on new plans to make the raw materials or these new plastics virgin plastics as they're called through Reuters surveyed twelve of the largest oil and chemical firms around the world to see what they're doing about this waste. Really they're just spending a fraction of the money that they're making on sales to devote to working on waste. So you've got campaign groups on you know some politicians in some government sank the oil and gas industry we KINDA. Coat. We need to reduce plastic production and what the oil and gas industry saying his. Don't worry we've got this covered we've got a solution we are investing in recycling infrastructure. We are helping poor countries to deal with their waste, and that's where I'll story really came from. We wanted to check that claim on what we found was the pledges made by the oil and gas industry are fraction of best spending on increasing plastic production, and they will have minimal impact on reducing plastic waste. So I think that that's a key point I understand because as the oil and gas companies tell you that they are fixing plastic waste crisis. It's important to interrogate those figures and I think that's what we've thoughtfully achieve with the story. I wanted to talk a little bit more of the effects of the pandemic. As we said in the beginning, you know face masks gowns, the P.. P. That we need to protect ourselves. That's also a big thing that's going to be feeling a lot of the waste you mentioned in your article China US twelve times more face masks than they did in earlier months in the United States, they generated entire years worth of medical wastes in two months at the height of the pandemic. So this is a lot of stuff that we're going to be seeing. The effects are going to be with us for some time. Yeah I think that's right I. think that's where it's worth separating the issue here. I don't think anyone is saying that plastic is not an incredible material with multiple uses and that it helped industrial organizations to make planes lighter may cause lights I think the issue here is single use plastic on the fear is this pandemic will exacerbate that trend of single use plastic. So although people might need mosques a need gowns and these are essentials if companies were to take this opportunity to increase the use of plastic single use plastic, then it's GonNa add to the waste problem and that's something we've seen with oil and gas lobbies who since the pandemic is hit. Written to lawmakers in the US to say that single use plastic is safer than other materials. Now, scientists have found that that's not the case. So you have to question whether the plus the pandemic is being used by certain vested interest companies that they want to capitalize on this to increase their profits. I think when a lot of people think about plastic waste and the huge problem, they definitely think about our oceans plastics make up about eighty percent of the marine debris and we've seen the big problems. We've seen the Great Pacific Garbage Patch you know which is just a bunch of plastic and netting and things like that. So I think a lot of people are really focused on that when they hear about plastic problem, but I mean it's really ranges all over the place. Yeah absolutely, and I think this is a problem which affects everyone. It affects humanity and I think that you see you see it in the oceans and certainly in parts of Southeast Asia, which is considered one of the biggest toy destinations in the world of Pristine Beaches Turquoise Asians you've got these waterways completely clogged with plastic fishing communities devastated where they live to be a risk as you mentioned, each plastics in the Pacific and elsewhere, but it's not just in the ocean it's clogging up rivers. It's affecting communities where they rely on food supplies where plastic waste is. So you know this is an issue that impacts everybody and should be an issue which everyone wants to help fix. We talked a little bit about the efforts from the oil and gas companies to limit plastic waste. But one thing that I did not know I found very interesting that the world's top three plastic polluters for two years running now are Coca Cola Nestle and Pepsi Pepsico. Obviously, they have a lot of plastic packaging. Their bottles are made the bottles that hold the soda in are made from plastic, and they're constantly setting goals to use more recyclable plastic in their products and not meeting those standards and it goes back to what we were saying at the beginning it's just cheaper to use new plastic than it is to use recycled stuff. Coke and Pepsi and Nestle and the other big consumer goods coming committees giving up a a consistent message they wanna fix this problem they want to use more recycled products but when it comes to meeting those targets that consistently Mitch the Knicks over decades and then they set new talk. Now, what they're saying is we don't get the recycled material. Now they cannot get the recycled material at the right price it cheaper to buy new plastics. Now, how you're GONNA get movies like material will you need a very advanced recycling system and that's what we're highlighting in this story the investment in that respect infrastructure is simply not there the oil and gas industries Coke Pepsi, they say they're investing in it, but then investing a fraction of what they're spending on advertising on new production. And this is a competitive industry when you go into the store and you look at the bottle of coke bottle of Pepsi bottle of another brand, the price of the packaging is significant in not product and you don't want your product to be increasing because you're using more recycled plastic. So the proof in the pudding we've seen that they've made these promises before and they've missed them. So I think we need to keep checking and keep saying they're gonNA meet those promises in the feature.
What About Your Friends?
"An Omni. Not to met in two thousand eleven. This is an talking about that night. We were set up by a friend, our friend dial Ola Padre a genius woman with a lot of foresight and the venue or rather the excuse for us to meet was A. Gossip girl television viewing gathering usually viewing party, but it was it was not a party, right? Like it was a bunch of people on the couch watching TV. Younger listeners won't know what this means, but you used to have to just watch TV when it was on. Like just imagine that TV was on at a specific time kids. So when certain shows like gossip girl became popular, they were just a part of the Zeitgeist because they were only so many things that person could be watching said felt like everyone was watching it. Plus Anna Nami. Naci both lived in DC where young and cable TV, the kind of Ecuador record in advance. If you WANNA to do was expensive and streaming didn't really exist yet it was a simpler time. This is on me not to. You know I was like, okay. I know that she's a feminist lady with like a fun sense of humor which. You know I was like that. That's such a very specific. You know kind of you know like kind of person I was like, yeah. We probably have the same length feminist hope bags probably you know like there's some like ven diagram like overlap there. So like very superficially that was one thing but like within the context of the Party itself, you know I was like everything. Was Fun. It was like yes dioz absolutely. Correct. I love how this lady dresses I love every joke she's telling I love her look I like her ideas I like the way she talks you know when you like imprint on someone that you like immediately like it's almost like they can't do anything wrong like everything is just charming to you and so I was very charmed. It was like that for both of them. They just clicked in that because of the tote bags but because for both of them, they were just in the same as of life and experiencing this phase in the same way. That really was a kind of unsettled kind of unhappy searching point of my life. I mean we were in Washington DC where our peers were pretty transient. Kind of place where a lot of people will go and work for a few years and then move on us included and I think we realized when we went to retrace our steps to write this book that we each had a very close friend who at the time we met was like either in the process of moving or we knew they were just about out the door and there was that feeling of unrooted this is that even a word we were not rooted. And we were really trying to figure out what the next phase of our adult life was going to be like, and so I, think that it really was profound to meet someone who I connected with. So deeply because it really felt like, I don't know it felt like almost like immediately being routed to someone as opposed to being routed to a place which I had not felt in the almost two years I lived in DC at that point.
Kenneth Cole Says, Fashion Is What I Do, It's Not Who I Am
"To thrilled to have Kenneth Cole, who's joining us to have an important conversation about a topic That Kenneth has a really passionate perspective on We managed to speak a few weeks ago and I'm I'm delighted to have you here today and Kenneth, I wanted to ask start asking the question. Are you really doing today? So I guess we're going to speak about that but I'm okay and but what made reference to is probably the single most asked the question every day of the every day of the week, every everywhere in the world and the one most rarely answered. but in this time of Cova did. Doing more reflecting and looking inside out and and try to. Come to terms with all that. So I guess we're going to speak about. Today. Exactly. I wanted to start with. This idea. In the title of today's talk which is. You know mental health as the other pandemic. I mean we've all been really focused of course on this deadly virus that's still spreading all around the world. But perhaps less discussed an equally important topic is a mental health. Pandemic and you know one could argue that actually. This is something that predates Kovic but the current situation has really kind of amplified the importance of this discussion. So why don't we start there talk to us a little bit about your perspectives on why we should be treating this as the other pandemic as it were. So I, I don't know people know might might might resume my experience but I worked I lived in the world of HIV for thirty years and I campaign about HIV AIDS in nineteen, eighty five, and known as talking about it was everybody's minds some few people's lips because of the stigma devastation of Sigmund. If you presumed to be part of this at risk community, you were stigmatized in every regard in in your life and I did that adjoined the board of Amfar I was the chairman of for fourteen. Years. I. Stepped Away from that about a year and a half ago and it became apparent to me that there was this other public health crisis that was so much bigger in. So many ways that I it was oblivious to in in. in the ordinary course in wanted to people today still HIV but it became clear that one in four live with mental condition. And that I argue is not one in four it's four because if it is someone, you love somebody in your family in the community here in the workplace but we're all living with mental health conditions and and we're all struggling with it. Different Ways in how do you? How do you deal with The the Amenity of it and also the practical aspects of it so So that was. That was pre covert and that was the the So I set out down this road and I said I was asked by some friends at me if I would consider working on the stigmatize stigmatization initiative for health and. and it seemed like a lot of people were focusing on this. I knew little about it. I had hardly the credentials not a clinician. I'm not a psychiatrist not mental for some that public health person. But I am a branding person I'm a perceptive perspective person I mean that's a perception person. That's what we do in fashions we do in our business and that's what I did with HIV for years. And and I figured I'll do it but only if I could really build a coalition because. You can't you need to. This needs to be cultural shift is can't just be put out there kind of a new narrative, a new vocabulary new way to talk about mental health that wasn't debilitating. But in fact, empowering I five psychiatrist for definition of depression, I get five different answers and none of them were empowering. So nobody's going to own it. No one's going to. Discuss the circumstances that way. But meanwhile, it's so pervasive and it is so debilitating and. A million people you know two hundred. Thousand people died in the US from from Covid as of now about and and it's getting larger a million people are going to die from suicide this year and this is not something that we even realized how. How how pervasive is concerns are, and and the reality is is a two-thirds people with mental. The health conditions live at exists. So in the shadows and they're not comfortable dressing in, they don't know how to address. It certainly gives me build this coalition. Everybody end we systematically Nami says were in, and then we went to the We went to the suicide prevention line in. crisis text line and Mental Health America and and child mind and jet founded.

When the dinosaurs died, how did other animals survive?
"So. Qian. Yes. One the dinosaurs went kaput. Why do you think other animals did not capuchin? I think some of them. They just were able to survive like something could live underground in some survived. But the thing is like apparently birds survived do you think birches Kinda made it out by chance I? Think the birds can just go really far. They can go high up and they can go far away from the blast. Dinosaurs they go like. Doing Weird things that cannot explain to like words. Our and they can't. They can't go up they just to stay on ground and they don't really have any word wrong because it's like. Just imagine your dentist or close. Your. Eyes. And you just like. He see this big fiery explosion see trying to run away but the explosion, the dust. This puts too fast and you just. Being engulfed in China run but you can't you just you can't run but the birds are just up in the sky of an party. Beset. Really it to the birds just. Fly Away. From their troubles. Then when the asteroid hits dinosaurs are just stuck on the ground parish. This is the question that scientists have been trying to answer. In fact when I was first in college that was the question that got me interested in being a paleontologist, how do we explain what survives and what doesn't after this event? This is Julia Clarke. She's a paleontologist at the University of Texas at Austin. She studies the evolution of birds in how they're related to the dinosaur relatives that survived the asteroid. Strike? So. Can you tell me a little bit what the asteroids strike was like? I guess. It's exceptionally difficult for us to imagine some people have. Likened it to hundreds. Of nuclear warheads. Detonated at one time. You're GonNa have things like wildfires and soon, armies and kind of nearby the crater. And at a distance, you'll have a jacked up raining down. These are a little tiny pieces of liquidified rock that are spewed up into the atmosphere at some scale and come down. And even as far away as Europe. It's probably the closest thing we've had to a total apocalypse event, right? In the last sixty, six, million years. This is about the most devastating near instantaneous event that has impacted the globe. was the big shoes Nami waves, the massive wildfires, and then raining fire how could anything survive moose dinosaurs go extinct but one group of dinosaurs survives. So what we call like flying dinosaurs are birds, but it's only one group of those birds that makes it the boundary and those. Bird dinosaurs are relatives of lineages we have today. So my brother keen he thinks that the reason why birds survived was just because since they had wings, they could just soar through the air and just get the heck out of there. Is He right? You know your brother is maybe partially right that it's only flyers that survived, but it's only certain flyers. It's confusing. Why did some of these species go? Completely away, and then some of them persist some of the hypotheses we have is that it's related to how fast living birds grow. So living birds go from being little babies to being adults really rapidly. So because natural selection acts from one generation to the next, if you can reach adult size faster, you can start reproducing and giving rise to the next generation. Natural selection otherwise known as survival of the video. Is when animals that have hopeful traits are more likely to survive. So, they're more likely to reproduce. So they can pass these helpful traits onto their children. So by having a shorter lifespan, species can evolve quicker because they make small changes every time every new version, they make new versions faster evolving things like bigger wings or better breathing harder conditions or a better metabolism raft eat less it makes sense. It's a huge keates arrived the apocalypse but of course, there are other theories to. Other hypotheses have emphasized that dinosaurs that were nesting on the ground did not survive as well right as if you could lay eggs elsewhere. We also know living birds have higher metabolic rates that means they eat more food and they're more warm blooded like us.

After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not
"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven.

And takes one last look at the bedroom shoes to share with her husband Hitter Yuki. He died a few years ago suddenly. And then she walks back down to hand over the keys. The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm.

We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing.

Technology innovation then it can't happen regardless of how advanced technologies earn regardless of how good the economics look many of the major utilities as well as the Japanese government are still waiting to see if nuclear power can make a comeback and renewables just aren't that reliable yet.

This is all my land, but it's nonsense. Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different. Now he says there were Rice patties all around here with tiny frogs that created a kind of soundtrack for his life now it's quiet. He misses the frogs a lot and he says, and he doesn't make nearly the same amount of money as he did farming. But She Yuki says he sees this as a necessary change. He has nine grandkids they all live far away now but they were just in town the other weekend for visit running through the fields. Suze my grandparents farmed here my parents do.

What Ruined City Lies Under Tunisia's Waters?
"Episode from our former host Christian Sagar. This one is about the ruins of a lost Roman city off the coast of Northern, Africa and evidence about what led to its loss a. plus a more fishy finding. FEHB rain stuff Christian Sager here archaeologists recently discovered more than fifty acres twenty hector's of Roman ruins off the coast of northeastern. Tunisia. That's a small country on the northern tip of Africa and situated on the Mediterranean Sea the discovery has researchers believing they may have finally found some convincing evidence that the city of Neapolis not to be confused with the Italian city of the same name that Neapolis was wiped out by a natural disaster about a thousand, six hundred and fifty years ago in addition to streets and monuments. Researchers found about one hundred tanks that would have been used to produce a garum that's a fish based fermented condiment commonly consumed in ancient Rome. In an email, how stuff works spoke to Carlos F Norrena associate professor of history at the University of California Berkeley he says that the discovery is important because it lends support to the theory that Tunisia Neapolis was submerged by a soon Nami in the fourth century. That's a useful reminder that environmental catastrophe is not only a phenomenon of the modern world scientists wrote in a twenty thirteen study in the journal Nature that as soon Nami was caused by an earthquake that occurred in three, sixty, five C E in Crete. There's no sure fire way to know the extent of the quake since measuring tools didn't exist at the time, but scientists believe to separate tremors happened in. Succession and the larger one had a magnitude of eight point zero on the Richter scale. The resulting soon Nami destroyed about fifty thousand homes and killed approximately five thousand people in the city of Alexandria Egypt and because the geological fault at the center of the earthquake was located off the coast of Crete that Greek island was actually lifted up in certain areas by as much as thirty three feet or ten meters. Historian. Honest Mercer lineas recorded the event and the newly found ruins reveal that there's much more to the story. NERINA says, the discovery also illuminates the economy of Roman. North Africa and provides further evidence for the popularity of Garum in the Roman Diet. The detail is significant. Garum was a big deal throughout the Roman Empire and as Italian archaeologist Claudio Geraldino has NPR it played a major role in the society's economy. He says that according to the Roman writers, a good bottle of garum could cost something like five hundred dollars today but that they also had garum for slaves that extremely cheap. So it is comparable to a modern amenity like. For instance, the underwater findings of Neapolis and it's abundant manufacturing materials indicate that the city was a major historical hub Neapolis, which means new city

I know statistically there there are increased suicides nationally I don't know do you know I don't know the answer to that question but I know that there are a lot of students who are referred to mental health support for having suicidal thoughts in Palm Beach county well we certainly are glad that there's someone around that they can call you know what let's see if we could get out your phone number and website now that would be a good time for folks listening to my number is five six one five eight eight three four seven seven and our website is nami and I am I nami P.

Disturbances often associated fast fast moving weather events, such as severe thunderstorms skulls and other storms fronts. So apparently this storm sent a ten foot to twelve foot high wave crashing into the Lake Erie shoreline. And I did I looked right? And this has happened on a number of occasions across across most of the Great Lakes, so Amedeo NAMI interests, I guess that's another thing. We're gonna have to watch out for. And apparently this hadn't happened in. Twenty something years that was the last one twenty years ago. Wow. So not an earthquake. Right. Which is the normal 'cause of a SU NAMI, but you have a weather condition sending a single foot wall of water. That's a big wall of water. I wouldn't want to be out in a little boat. I wouldn't want to be in virtually any kind of boat. Right. So how far inland it went. I don't know. Interesting..

"To coast back with Peter pry and your phone calls. Peter. What do you think the Russians Chinese North Koreans? Iranians would do if they knew we started protecting our power grid. That has always concerned me, you know, what they strike the strike. Do they see that as a potential act of war that we're getting ready to protect ours to get there's you know, because they have this opportunity, you know, potentially decisive opportunities track us with EMP and cyber and and and the Russians actually exercise this last year in their Vostok eighteen exercise one of the largest nuclear and ground forces exercises. But it also had a component where few couple of weeks before the exercise the actually penetrated our electric utilities hundreds of of of computer, viruses, where were launched in attacks against our electric utilities. And we don't. We don't know what these whether this was just a test or whether they actually implanted logic bombs, and they might have practiced probably did practice an EMP attack at that. Same time. See this would would have been exercising. This new way of warfare on the part of the Russians just before the classic exercise where us tanks and an actual nuclear detonations. And like, you know, that would be unnecessary. If they hit prevailed in their exercise using the using this new what they call six generation warfare or or cyber all outside we're warfare. So yes, I am concerned about. Adversary started. This just like the problem is we have with all the rest where we're starting to modernize our nuclear trying. Under President Trump, and we're trying to rebuild our conventional military forces after eight years of neglect by President Obama, and and allow President Trump in his state of the union address last night said, you know, we're stronger than any other military power. He's the president and commander in chief. And he has an alternative. And and I'm glad he said that, you know, but it's frankly, it's a big, plus, you know, if you actually look at the status of our conventional and nuclear forces, and of course, if our electric grid, we've never been weaker and more vulnerable. You know, as we move toward modernizing and strengthening our conventional military our nuclear military and protecting our grid. That's gonna be a very dangerous time because the the adversaries going to notice that and and might say, well, we'd better get them. Now while they're while they're still vulnerable. Well, I I guess what we should say publicly if we start to fix the grid is we're concerned about an ex flare from the sun in make no reference at all about these nations that could detonate nukes. Yeah. But that's not going to fool. It's a good political line. But it's not gonna fool for sure. And and this is a kind of a discouraging reason for why they might not attack. Okay. You know, you know, unfortunately. The nature of our. I think we're really challenge. This is a new and unique challenge for democracies versus totalitarian systems. You know, we met this challenge back in World War Two when the western democracies managed to prevail over Nazi, Germany and imperial Japan. And we met in prevailed again during the Cold War over the show via union. But I I'm not sure that people realize just wouldn't near run thing. That was I'm reading I new biography of Winston Churchill that impresses me all over again about how it was really a miracle that we manage to win World War Two, you know. And I think we think that same problem if you think about it, just logically. You know, imagine, you're not even a earthly, but you're an alien, and you're looking you're doing a laboratory experiment, and you're looking at competing systems on the one side, you've got these totalitarian and authoritarian systems in Russia and China and North Korea in Iran. The leadership doesn't change where they can pursue plans that are based on on a consistent investment in and strategizing goes out for decades decades, and it doesn't change their. They're can constant Luther that, and then you look at the free system that we have where systems can change radically when you have a new president when you have a new congress, and that's one of the things I think the bad guys are off. I think that's one of the reasons we haven't been hacked yet because they're winning without war. Why should they launch an attack when they're winning without war? We've managed to look at look at what we did under Obama. It's unbelievable in terms of what we did to our economy. And how we how we hollowed out our military forces and neglected our nuclear forces and President Trump's only got another two years and in two years, they could get, you know, one of these socialist Democrats in charge. You know, the the new House Armed Services committee. You're being political Peter you're being political. Okay. I I know my congressional advisory boards. Don't probably gonna get in trouble for this. All right. But, you know, our our Adam Smith who's the new chairman of the House Armed Services committee, and as a new democrat opposes the modernization of their nuclear triad. And in fact, he's listening to ploughshares and the anti-nuclear groups and can to reduce the US nuclear triad to three hundred warheads get rid of all the ICBM's get rid of all the bombers, and and and cut in half our ballistic missile submarine force. You can't do it unless the Russians do it. And they're not gonna do it. But he he he wants to do this unilaterally. That's crazy. Well, he's he controls the defense half the defense budget. Okay. So how is President Trump going to get our nuclear triad modernization defense budget and all the rest of our defense budget passion, this guy, you know? Anyway, talk about colluding with Russians, right? You know? The Kremlin has got gotta be salivating as does Beijing salivating over over. Oh my God. Probably saying how dumb can these people get exactly exactly. So why should they go to war when they're winning without war? Smith nine years. Ourselves. We're doing it to ourselves. I spent nine years in the navy Peter in one of the things they taught us in kept telling us was our nuke. Subs were the major deterrent because we've got them parked all over the place over there, and we could hit within minutes, and they could do the same thing, of course. But that's the deterrent. But do you know that during the Cold War, our our nuclear submarine fleet numbered about forty boats? Okay. And now it's down to fourteen. I know it was forty because a Rick over and the way he pushed it. Yes. But now, it's only fourteen and it's going to go down to twelve that's crazy and Adam Smith wants to cut it down to six and the Chinese are building more. Yes, that's right. And the Russians are deployed this new anti-submarine system called Poseidon. They've advertised it is causing as being designed to cause to NAMI nuclear ce`namas is basically it's a revolutionary and extremely dangerous. Nuclear weapon. It's basically a robot submarine it has no crew, and it's designed to it's got artificial intelligence and it carries a one hundred megaton bomb hundred megaton bomb. You know, that's like a ten thousand times more powerful than here Shema, Bob. And the idea is that this thing will will you know, it's got the signatures of our ballistic missile submarines programmed into it to follow them around. And and then when when they're ready, you know, they'll detonate this thing, it doesn't have to get close to one of our separates. It can be hundreds of kilometers away with a hundred megaton bomb and destroy the submarines they're planning to deploy thirty two of these. And we'll only have a fleet of twelve submarines. So that's that's you know, you can do the math. But you know, it's about two or three Poseidon forever every forever US ballistic missile submarine that exists now you've had him. Smith gets his way. They'll only be six range against these crazy crazy. Let's take some calls for you. Peter for the rest of this hour. First time caller, Mike in mccook Nebraska is with us. Hey, Michael, go ahead. Well, thank you. So gentlemen, Mr. Nori. I I would like to thank you for taking the lead on this and being persistent as you bent over the years, you've you've really raised awareness of of this topic. And I hope you keep it up. Dr pry you've obviously got a handle on the big picture stuff. But my curiosity is well, I should probably be in touch with my congressional representatives. I'm wondering what else I should be doing as a family man is a is a homeowner to to do all I can to protect my end of this. I've got a couple of home. Brewed Faraday cans with some radio gear him but other than that. I really haven't prepared for this. So if you have any thoughts on that if that's in your wheelhouse. I'd appreciate hearing about it, certainly. And I would prepare in part as you would for. Any? Protracted emergency. You know, have have a lot of food in the house. I try to have at least a year's worth of food, and and mostly and canned food because that that will last forever water is is going to be really important if you don't have an electrical generator. You might wanna consider getting one to keep the water flowing in your house. If you have a generator I keep it on a manual not on automatic. You know, when you add that just doing that simple thing, keeping your electrical generator on manual, so that you have to turn it on can protect your generator for an EMP because when it's on automatic. It's it's it's basically wired into the wires in your house and the house wires or wire power line and the pecan come right through your house and into your generator industry general in part of the problem here to Peter's we're talking about sustaining yourself for short term to get going. But this is gonna be a long term process. And that's why you need to be prepared for a protracted period of of providing for your own food, your water a medicine kit and know, how to use it think about where you live is where you're gonna live be safe. If you're looking at a major metropolitan area, and if you have relatives or friends who have someplace in the country, you can't the place to be you can't pump gasoline pumps are gonna go. Right. That's right. That's right. Have a transportation plan and enough spare gas for your car? So that if you have to leave where you are, you know, you can get to some safe place and have some idea about where you can go that will be that will be safe. So that you can sit at sit out the crisis. There's a a good book called the civil defense book by Michael may be that really get down to a lot of the brass tacks. But what you can do as an individual for preparedness against EMP, satellite, still work. If there's a solar flare from. The sun. No. It'll wipe those right out there gone too. So, you know, I broadcast to the world here by satellite. So the chances are I'm going to get knocked off the air to. Yes, that's right. You know, and and the the antennas that you use it radio stations and things like that, you know, our ideal receivers for for the MP, so the electronics associated with your broadcasting, you know, unless they're disconnected. You know, we're going to would probably be frost cell phones. Go cell phone towers, go so full itself is so small that pulse won't directly connect into it. Basically an object has to be about eighteen inches have some dimension. It's about eighteen inches long for the pulse to connect into it. That's why I wanted one of the midst that's out there is that you have to have a pre nineteen nineteen Seventy-three car to survive in EMP. Right or they started putting microelectronics? That's true. You know, for about one hundred bucks, you know, you can get a fair right tubes from any electronics store if you cover the long long wires in your car. So you know, so that that will mitigate the ability of an EMT to get into those long wires, and it will protect the microelectronics in your car. So the ordinary person if you you know, if you bought the right tubes and Hiram mechanic to cover the long wires and the engine compartment. It's not a perfect solution. But it would significantly increase the survivability of a modern car against EMP. One of the things I regret is that, you know, about the design of modern cars is is is the the disappearance of a hand crank for windows. You know, everything has become so power. You know, every we spoil ourselves with you know, unnecessary complexity technological complexity so in a lot of cars now, there's no hand crank, you know. And you know, what happens if the electron extra fruit lowering your window? Fried in hot state, and some are like California that can really make a difference, even if a car survives. You know? Would you be able to stand driving in it because you can't get the window down? Good point Franken Hollywood, Maryland walk him to the show Franken, Debbie back.

So there's the actual kid who was docs, the family was harassed everything that we now know happens in these outreach cycles, but then there was another kid who look suspiciously like him who was not him at all whose family. There's an amazing and heartbreaking Twitter thread about it whose family was in the middle of a family wedding. And they spend their whole weekend fighting off these mobs who were trying to destroy them. And it wasn't even the kid in the video. I mean that is really horrifying to me. That's where we are.
