Making Tiny Design Work Better with Lina Menard

"All right. I am here with Linda, Menard. Linda. Is a natural co-conspirator who has lived out her own questions around intentional living less stuff and happiness she has resided in a travel trailer, Yurt backyard cottage and three and counting tiny houses on wheels. Routed through a background in sustainable design, build and urban planning. Linda. Also has a pension for experiential learning and healthy communities. She has found her niche nestled between small spaces, collaborative education, and Community Planning Linda Minard. Welcome to the show. I even thanks to be here. Glad to have you. You know we we were talking just a minute ago, and you're like, what? What should we talk about and I had written down all of these kind of disparate things 'cause I just things that we've talked about in the past, and then of course, in in total Lyneham and art style, you just dropped the perfect perfect insight which was designed, build versus build design What do you mean by that? Yeah Well what I mean by it is that a lot of times when people get excited about their tiny house journey. People. Coming. Out. From. One. Of Two. Different. Directions. One direction is the okay. So I'm going to figure out exactly what it is that I want and then figure out exactly how I'm going to build it. And there are other people who are like. I'm a wire or at least I, WanNa be wire and so I'm gonNA figure it out as I go. I'm going to start building and as I build my design going to emerge. Or maybe the alternative to that. The other kind of like you know like plan b version to is. I'm going to have somebody else told the shell or I'm GonNa you know by a partially built house. Or I'm going to buy a little shack or cabin or whatever else is already out there in the world I mean is already built and I'm going to redesign it or or renovate it there. So I think those are you know kind of two approaches to different ways people can go about. Getting the sort of little face it's going to be on sweet on. Is there. Is there a wrong answer? Are they both like valid paths to take? I think they are valid path to take I think that it often depends on kind somebody's quality anyway like are you the sort of person who likes to jump in with both feet and figure it out and be on your toes a little bit? Are you somebody who's really thoughtful and you take your time and you put things on a certain order You know I tend to lean a little bit more towards the design build. Side of things, but I've also gotten myself into projects where. There and figuring out what to do with it. From there I've done renovation work and really enjoyed that some ways it's really nice to not have the blank slate because then you've got something to work with got some constraints and the constraints I think create and some juice penis in terms of getting creative juices flowing because you can't do anything you want you actually have to work within the boundary So I think it's kind of a personality thing I would say the biggest. issue. Is I contact somebody. You. Know they've scheduled a consultation or maybe they're you know in one of my design classes which I teach with you superfund and they say, yeah, I've got a trailer and now we have to figure out what we're going to build. And that I think is a bummer because if you. Give yourself the constraint of the trailer. Before really figuring out what it is that you want. Then, you can't go back and take the trailer bigger or. So I think that can be about are sometimes because we don't necessarily a lot of us. I think especially in America and other Westernized countries we're not necessarily Subaru engage with things that are hands on like building. A sense of scale and so learning how to work down learning, how to design something so that going to suit your need. Is going to help you figure out like Oh. Do I really need twenty four feet or thirty feet or twenty feet or whatever that is if you're building on wheels and the thing that you're actually even on a foundation. You know the trailer sometimes like Oh you know I bought the trailer. Now I forgot to sign I think that can be a bummer because drink but even if people are are working with with the ground structure. Their limitations on a lot of areas where you can and can't build stuff. You don't have any sense yet of what it is you want then you might end up purchasing property where you can't build what you want whether that's that you've purchased the house thinking you could do a basement after dwelling. You know little like basement apartment and you don't have the clearance for it. So I think it goes back and forth I, don't think there's a wrong way right way but I think that understanding what sort of constraints you can live with. Is going to help you to be happier as you're working.

Summerwind Mansion

"Inland Lakes Wisconsin just south of the state's border with Michigan there was once a house on West Bay Lake a Victorian built in the nineteen tents, surrounded by Scrub Oak, and then northern Pines, it once held twenty rooms. The property was initially used as a rustic resort before it was renovated into a stately mansion by civil engineer and businessman Robert Lamont in nineteen sixteen. Lamont his wife Helen Gertrude would vacation there during the nineteen twenty s, and through his tenure as President Herbert hoovers secretary of Commerce during the Great Depression. The Lamont's called their home summer wind. Lamont left the President Service in nineteen, thirty, two likely withdrawing to the mansion to recuperate after an exhausting and in many ways fruitless effort to pull the United States out of its economic spiral. According to a frequently repeated legend, the couple was having dinner in the houses kitchen one night when the door to the basement shook itself. Revealing the spectral form of a man. Lamont panicked in fired two shots as the door swung shot leaving two bullet holes in the door. Perhaps it was this experience that caused the couple to flee the house. The details of when and why the Lamont sold their property are unclear. What is now is that by the time Lamont died in nineteen, forty eight summer win belong to the Keefer family who also used it as a vacation getaway. Unfortunately the Kiefer's experienced many misfortunes in summer wind, according to one story Mr Keefer passed away in less than a year after they purchased the house, leaving his wife in despair and dire financial trouble. Across the three decades, the Kiefer's haunted. The house deteriorated with neglect, and its land was eventually subdivided and offered up for sale. However many of the buyers were allegedly forced to back out the last minute because of sudden financial disasters. The unlucky house kept returning to the Kiefer's.

Dying of whiteness during the coronavirus pandemic

How the politics of racial resentment is killing. America's heartland Nestle the director of Vanderbilt University Center for medicine. Health and society put a human face on the opposition to many policies that would save lives and livelihood a warning of the lengths to which the white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. Listen to mental. Explain why those anti stay at home protests in state capitals Egged on by the president that historical pattern and why the politics racial resentment is a deflection. That works right now. Jonathan Metzel. Thank you very much for coming back to the PODCAST. It's great to be back. I you were just on the podcast a couple of months ago and I try not to go back to Previous guests sooner than say six months but the situation that we're in right now with the with covert nineteen sort of demanded that you come back. We had on Reverend William Barber talking about the racial disparities that we've now been forced to reckon with with the corona virus. And you sent me a message. Reminding me that everything that you wrote about in Europe antastic book dying of Whiteness is playing out in this corona virus and the covert nineteen pandemic. Talk about that well. The book I wrote Diana Whiteness was was really. I mean I who knew at the time but what I was talking about in. That book was about the ways in which there were kind of undercurrents of white racial resentment that shaped Attitudes among politicians and certain white voters particularly in mid in America. That am caused them to what you would think. Vote against their own biological self interests and so the story. I told him that book was a story. About how for example and working class and lower income white voters rejected the affordable. Care Act. Which would have helped them a lot because they thought that immigrants and minorities were gaming the system and I looked at The rise of guns as symbols of kind of white self protection. And you know that was. That was a a book that I thought was kind of how to beginning a middle and an end it was kind of a warning of the lengths to which when white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors in corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. I mean everything from in you know. It seems like the best possible for many red states would be to expand Medicaid if people health and transferred this moment of dire need and you would think people would be rallying to get Medicaid. It would help them. Not just medically would help them. Financially not incur bankruptcies pay less for medications but instead trump has been actively actively not expanding Medicaid and and people have been supporting him and the same thing with guns are the the gun story as is eight hundred percent rise in gun sales in some states in in in conjunction with this idea And and so kind of across the board this idea and and of course brought to bear most recently by these protests are across across many red states where people are literally out there saying and we we want to support trump even if it costs us in our family members and our communities days and months and years of our lives and and the racial currents are just. I mean just absolutely unavoidable. Okay so let's let's start with the with those protests because as I watched the video coming from Lansing Michigan and other places and people is openly. Define what we all knew when they were protesting to be true that the corona virus is spread. If you are not socially distancing if you're not wearing a mask if you're shaking hands if you have any kind of physical contact and these votes were acting in total defiance of everything of everything we know up the is it. Are they being irrational in what they're doing or are they being rational in that support for Donald Trump and resentment of and racial resentment are enough for them to ignore science? Well I think there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind about this process. I just always make clear when I talk about them. That those protests are not all all white Americans. They're not all trump supporters. That's a kind of vote very vocal very threatening fringe group. That has gotten a lot of validation from from trump and a lot of funding from the Devos family and other places and so in a way. Because we're all stuck at home. It's hard to see that there are a lot of people in red states who are terrified of what those protests represent Democrats and Republicans and so first of all. I think it's unfortunate just given the way we're all many of us at at home right now and it looks like that's every Republican out there and that's not the case that being said I try to avoid saying that anything is irrational You know I think would my research. I came to realize that there are there are deep and ideology said that makes sense to people and I think this idea of government. Overreach this idea that Social PROGRAMS ARE GONNA benefit immigrants and minorities and and at the expense of of white people. do these ideas are very very ingrained and I think that also when you when you combine that with a moment of real despair this I this moment of you know not just a more the risk of mortality but also this fear of you know real real economic trauma that people back on their deepest their deepest fears. We've seen that you know the rise of Nazi Germany on down that people when they're who've been there the most desperate it's not like they become the most centrist They they become the most terrified. And so it. At a moment like this people fall back on extreme ideologies. It's not like everybody's GonNa come to the middle and I think trump has been very artful at manipulating those anxieties and shifting blame race. That I think are very dangerous but it's not I. It's not irrational. If it's based in a particular reading of reality and and also Lib reality for a lot of people you know one of the big stories to come out of out of the corona virus coverage is the the health disparities disparities in impact that overwhelmingly the victims of Corona virus have been Americans and other people of color particularly African Americans. What role do you think that plays in the mindset of people who might be looking in saying you know that's affecting them and so therefore I don't need to be concerned about this? Well I think certainly that's been framing an edge of course true right in other words. Many of the people who died in this early phase are emigrants of members of minority groups. People who have to either have to go to work In in conditions are live in areas. Where there's a lot of density I certainly think that that led to a feeling of kind of white and bits ability especially in the people. I've been interviewing people in this idea that oh no. This won't be because this is kind of black and Brown problem. I certainly think fueled part of the feeling of invincibility surrounding mess But it'll be interesting to see. I mean I think there are two caveats that narrative of I is that I guarantee you. A lot of these deaths in rural white America are being under reported. Just because there's not great data gathering and so I do think there's a lot of despair in in rural areas that we're not hearing about and and I think the other point is because of these protests and particularly when these red states start opening up if if they do which seems insane. We're GONNA see a lot of of working class white very sick and dying and so it'll be interesting to see what happens to that narrative when it really starts to hit home for people

Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia

"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.

"nestle" Discussed on Snacks Daily

"This is nick this Jack and this is snacks. Daily is Tuesday April twenty eighth. Spring is in the air except up here in Vermont where we've got snow again last night. Apparently on the east coast spring not thing winter straight into June real thing. Spring is not a thing but this is the best podcast yet. It's so much better than what we whipped up for you guys yesterday Jack for a story. The main course of Nestle's earnings report was human food. Catch her back baby. Didn't know they were gone. But they're back. But we're digging into the fancy feast in the pet nash over next to the table or talk and pet pampering. It's an accelerating trend for our second story. Making automobiles isn't exactly work from home. Friendly honey can keep things down trying to drill the carburetor into the chassis. I told you I've already downshifted as much as I can. Honey stop saying random car terms to me please. Volkswagen just reopened the world's largest car factory in Germany. We're talking about a big chicken and egg issue for a third and final story is the Unicorn of the day institute has become Insta- famous because people are afraid to visit the grocery store. The grocery delivery options had its first prophet. Ever were so happy for you. We've got a proposal on how INSTA- cartridge spend its first profit one word big W warehouses. So it's knackers before we get into that happy teaboy Tuesday feels. It just felt like a Tibo Tuesday. I woke up. It felt like a teaboy. Teaboy is of course the best one yet and you may have noticed that zoom stock on Friday wasn't the best one yet no wasn't it gets situation. Zoom stock plummeted thirteen percent before the weekend. Basically zoom got sucked and that's because facebook decided to whip up a little thing called room three video hangouts for up to fifty people for and did we mention it's free classic. Facebook style Mark Zuckerberg mentioned the word connections two dozen times in the announcement about the new product. Which is clearly as Zoom nocco also classic facebook style this blatantly copy someone else's product facebook's biggest strength besides no every personal detail about you is the fact that like two point. Five billion people in the world had facebook accounts already and it takes advantage of that by copying features from potential rival. And you've already gotten account so it's easy to use for example. Instagram stories looks a lot like snapchat. Facebook data tender vibes all over this facebook market craigslist copycat straight and simple and this last one is more recent facebook. Lebron has gone is. It's pretty much of address. This brings us to our teaboy Tuesday question of the week. What will Zakim facebook knockoff? Next what company is GONNA get sucked? I'm thinking facebook's go launch F male which is like g mail but no Google snacker. Tell us at robinhood. Snacks tweet us. Well get suck next daily spoke about the Hamre Food Candy. They don't reflect the views. Her family informational. Just so you get no recommending any security. It's not a research report or investment advice to offer or sale of security by snacks digestible. Business News video financial. Llc member favors less happy. See for our first story. Nessa just enjoyed a huge sales growth for human food. We're focused on. Its pet game but before we get into the story nick. I have a trivia question please. This company is based in Switzerland. How many official languages are there in which I appreciate asking such a neutral question? Well you've got French. You Got German. You GotTa Talian and I'M GONNA go with like some random obscure local like shush lot language. It's very alpine guess of neck. It is the fourth one. That's hardest which is romance a beautiful tongue now. We're talking about a company that's a lot like. Unilever but less creative with the brand names as both are big food glamour. It's based in Europe but NESTLE NAMES. Its Products Ness Cafe Ness quickness Bresso nasty net cetera net sector. It also happens to be the world's biggest food company and enjoyed a solid four point three percent sales growth last quarter which was way more than it expected. That doesn't sound that good for point. Three percent sales growth before a packaged goods company. That's best in five years. It doesn't get much sexier than that and it's all powered by comfort foods that were like whipping up in the microwave during work from all. We're talking no. It's not delivery it's digiorno and also hot. Pockets is made by NASA LATE. Giorno folded up into a tiny rectangle not to be confused with Stover's which is then unfolded digiorno pizzas. That were originally hot. All of these are nestle products. Put Nestle has a new profit puppy pet food. This is what Fast Jack and I- pet food is Nestle's fastest growing product category. When he cut through all the other information about their food products all remember Purina has the most space in pedophile any grocery store that experience double digit sales growth last quarter. Oh and for that food segment of PURINA. It's up fourteen percent. In North America as of Twenty nineteen. Pet food is now nestle. Second biggest category and this is a huge company. We're talking about a company that produces walk Candy Lori L. Hot Pockets Gerber baby food. This is their second biggest category. Like all of us pet owners nestle stocking up on pet food companies that this knacker's while you loaded up your cabinets with like Pasta on April first made it quarantine nestle. Bought lillies kitchen which is a British fancy pet food company that according to its website sells grass fed lamb dog food. A twelve kilo bag costs sixty nine pounds. That's the most confusing sentence I've ever had is the kind of thing. The Prince of Wales is serving as Corgi medium rare and Nestle's American competitors general mills and James Marker. They've both followed that. Trend with multibillion dollar fancy pet food acquisitions since two thousand eighteen. If you're not buying fancy pet food then you're just not a cool conglomerates so jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Nestle. Another accelerated trend macron economy is pet pamper snacker. Think about it. Millennials are putting off having families. Aging boomers want companionship. And those trends are even more serious when we could be stuck at home and avoiding people for a year or more until we get this vaccine get this from the humane society. Fostering turns out. It's up ninety percent in some cities for pets and animals and pet shelters across the nation have run out of puppies to adopt river. Our new profit puppy is just one in that data set in the corona economy. People are cutting back on themselves. But we're not cutting back on our pets. Take a look at me. Dot Com stock price has doubled in the past month as people are splurging on their pets and in a socially distant economic recession. That accelerates the pet pampering trend aggressively for our second story. Vw just restarted. The world's largest car factory. But will anybody buy new cars right now? And that's all going down in Volkswagen's lovely headquarters in Wolfsburg Germany Volts Berg Fund volksbank expert. Not a fake name. Sounds like we're three. The characters in the twilight series came from Fuzzy. Curtis car and olives. Zeba it's also adorable this time of year out there. It's really pretty. This plant in Wolfsburg. Germany is gigantic. We're talking seventy million square feet which we did the calculation for at. That's six hundred sixty seven Walmart. That's right you could pack six hundred sixty seven superstars in this one super world spurred plant. And if you WANNA talk about more big numbers. Guess Jack and I found. They managed to employ sixty three thousand workers in this place. I think that's the working age population of Vermont. They're producing thirty five hundred cars a day which is about an eighth of a lift. Now that's been a problem because the CDC says to avoid gatherings of sixty three thousand workers in one plant to see when that happens and by the way it's been closed for thirty nine days normally in that period of time they would've pumped out a hundred and thirty six thousand cars because of all those missing cars. Volkswagen stock is down thirty percent since its recent high because nobody is buying any cars from bulk because everybody knows there's nothing. The Germans do better than a sense of humor. They opened up the plant and incredibly charming way. How did they do it? Jack picture the Volkswagen logo. They turned it ninety degrees and it looks a lot like a pacman and then they put that recognizable Green Cove nineteen germ so that the pack bands like eating it up. You're going to see it. Chuck for five seconds. And if you work at the plan you're probably be like can. I go home now. You'll chuckle for two seconds. Now we know what you're thinking smackers are they doing it. Are they reopen? Volkswagen with lear. Method remember lear is the Southfield Michigan Biz seat company within cars. Yes said just published a fifty two.

Amazing Bird Nests With Brett DeGregorio

"I should probably tell the story that led me to your doctoral work and then subsequently over the years two other papers you've published and then to calling you up out of the blue the other day and inviting you to come talk today so. I know it will bore you because you've already heard the story but I'm sitting. I don't know how many years ago at my desk and to my right in my field. Division out of their side of my right eye is A patio and stonewall and in the springtime. There's a chair out there. And there's a bird who sits on the back of the chair and every so often came seems very intent on the stonewall and every so often Swoops down and seems to look for something in the stonewall in this house goes on over and over again and I'm thinking what in the world and the behaviors of Flycatcher that I kind of knew the kind of that kind of Activity but I thought. What's IT catching? What's it doing anyway identified? The bird turned out. It was a great crested flycatcher and then one time I turn my head just at the right time and it was picking up a shed snakeskin out of the wall of a lot of garter snakes in the stonewall. They loved their and they wriggle out of their skin and leave it behind and this flycatcher apparently knew that he or she whatever could find. I don't know if it's a year she could find snakeskins dare and wanted to collect them and I read that. They used them in their nests. So tell us about that crazy thing I mean how in the world breath that bird not do that and why. Why does a bird do that and two other birds do that? I mean it is very aging and that behavior was first reported on in the nineteen twenties. So people have known about this for a long time but it wasn't until two thousand six. Anybody tested it and what they found out. Is that these Great Crested Flycatcher. They nest in cavities in trees made one of one of their main predators are flying squirrels and one of the things that wants to eat flying squirrels and also loves to go into those tree. Cavities are snakes particularly lap snakes and it seems to be that if a fly catcher incorporates a snakeskin into its nest or displays it outside of a toll it is much less likely that a fine squirrels gotta go into that nest hole and Either take it away from the bird or actually degradate the exit that bird. Wow you know and I mean my head just goes to the like who told the bird. This was a good idea. What bird in its ancestral line? How many billion you know thousands of years ago figured this out. I mean it's just it's amazing. It's just so so it's an anti predation strategy that this animal has developed that and then those tests that you said in two thousand six to that said they sort of proved it. They examined enough nests to prove that it did have a positive effect. They did what they looked at. Were a bunch of Artificial comedies basically burn Fox's SPA for fly catchers and they put A third of those Nestboxes they put Ness with nick skins inside the box at third of they hung the snakes right outside the box. In a third of them were just regular NASC without snakeskins and what they found is that Flying squirrels stay right away from those Desperate either displayed or incorporated those snakeskins. It's amazing now so you're into snakes. Urine two birds. This is about a relationship among snakes. Birds actually in a couple of ways. Well the snake sometimes go up the tree looking up the tree looking for the Flying Squirrel. Is that what goes on or something to get into the nest cavity Tom? I believe that the snakes you know particularly those rat snakes. They loved to climb trees and they're always looking for a a a good place to hide out in. One of their favorite places to hide is in the hollows of of dead trees. Those avenues I see so so snakes and birds did it. And they have a common ancestry. Don't they even? I mean I'm not so good with paleontology and sort of the Filo genetic system of things according to their ancestry or whatever but aren't Cincinnati Related. Sort of certainly not my strong point either. But but yeah they they definitely come from the shared ancestor. Yeah and so. Yeah so you know I mean to other birds do this. Are there other birds? Go looking an isn't known whether it was the male or female who does this. I don't know who builds the nest in the great crested Flycatcher for instance but and I don't know how to tell them apart necessarily But other birds that do this collect snakeskins and use them in this way There are and the the more you start paying attention to burgess the more you see the wacky things that they incorporate but I I've seen snakeskins. In a number of different species nests including up blue grow speaks. Do It really frequently Robbins occasionally do that actually spent the day today watching some Robbins Dildo nest right outside my front door. And they're incorporating a long piece of tape off of the cardboard box it looks just like a snake skin and I'm guessing that they're tricked by it At read seen European birds do this as well and there seems to be a theory that these birds who don't nest in cavities but instead built big platform Nestle Little Cup Nests. They do as kind of a status symbol. So there's one bird that's a small Hawk called the black kite and the more snake skins and white pieces of plastic incorporate into the nest the tougher. They're telling their neighbors. They are and the birds that incorporate lots of these white pieces of plastic and snakeskins they tend to be really dominant and other birds will don't mess with them and kind of Sub Dominant or weaker birds. They're too afraid to incorporate these ornaments into their nests. Because they know they can't win those sites so they have that crazy contest. Is it so forgive me? Saying there's a pecking order Haha among

Making over a 1963 Cadillac

"I found the nineteen sixty three cadillac in a driveway. And I wrote to the owners of the House because my in my county you could find anybody's name address to anybody for any property. I never saw this property before. I don't know why I never drew down this road and my friend said hey is a really cool cadillac. You'd be into it so I looked at it and it's a four door fleetwood and I really thought it would be cool to convert in whatever. Anyway it's been sitting in the same spot for forty years so I wrote the people and in the meantime I'm looking I haven't heard from them and they never wrote back. But in the meantime I'm always looking on facebook market for that kind of car like a car that looks rusty and really screwed up just like that. It's like perfect. The bodies like perfectly aligned. It's not crunched routed through to sue and so in a in an impulse. I saw this Cadillac. That just had just gotten posted. It was a seven sixty seven. Eldorado of sixty seven convertible sixty seven Cadillac convertible and so. I just texted the guy in through facebook market. And we wrote back and forth and as we take pay pal like y'all take some in pay pal if you pay me a little bit so I paid fifteen hundred dollars. He delivered it so because I was talking about that other car. Got Me curious to just keep looking looking looking for that type of texture on a car and when I saw this it was a really fast so it showed up in everybody's asking me always that the call from the front yard of the House nearby. It's not I just saw it in so now the car from the House nearby. I don't need that anymore. The satisfies that itch. Okay David how long do you think it will be before he gets out of the written back to? Oh you're muted David. I can't hear you haven't that killed my joke. I said when we record the next podcast. So it's a sixty seven Cadillac Eldorado. Keep saying it's called the Deville sixty seven cadillac convertible and it's it is like people say how bad is it? I'm like it's probably about. It's probably about three weeks away from being completely gone it runs drives has no breaks every time. I try to stop ahead of give myself like twenty feet to coast to a stop and it The floorboards are completely routed yesterday. Me AND MY BUDDY RYAN. We ripped the whole interior out would cut the seat out. You know it's it's basically a convertible that was probably left open twenty percent of its life to the rain so the interior seats are all moldy. And it's been stored for really long time. The Guy got it from has no paperwork heat and really tell me much about it. I think he's like a recovery guy who just like to close at warehouses and soften. He says he got it recently and he just put it up for sale. He says he got he got it running. He claims he put the carburetor on it. He said it was in a warehouse. He took it home. There was no carburetor on it. He found a carburetor and a junkyard. Put It on. It played with a for a couple of hours got it started and put it on facebook marketplace. And that's how I got so it's definitely has not gotten any attention this mice nestle over which I got most of them blown out and What WHAT'S THE PLAN. Are you going to restore to original condition or are you going to modify the whole worms? I just wanted something to creatively experiment with and Okay and So I'm going to basically make like a rat rod ahead a couple of teams tales like. Oh we're going to get it perfect again like no no that would take. That would take a lot. It's like Fred Flintstone Style. Like just kick the ground as you're the body lines straight. That's what I liked about the body lines straight so it's like a good. Both the frame seemed straight and Somebody played with the brakes breaks. Hopefully that just needed just because there's a lot of brand new brake parts. There look like they haven't gotten rusty so this if you look through a couple of shiny parts in the car that somebody like me that'll ambitious and then gave up on it again and So the wiring zoll horrible. It's going to be a nightmare like Patrick's GonNa help move the wiring. I said he goes while we gotTA figure I go look if we could just put like a row of switches on the dashboard. That say you know left? Lincoln right link of the region his that would be easy if we just do that instead of China. So it's just a big experiment to play with and it like I said because it runs I can get in and started. It doesn't sound very healthy but it runs and that's figured half the half the battle so yeah yeah just the fact that you can get it to turn over. I mean that means you're you know you're further along than if it didn't turn over there would be quite a few reasons why it wouldn't move you know and that would take a lot to get so it's really you can at least attack at a time and a funny thing was is. I went on I I I got one on Ebay to buy like all the emblems and stuff for it and then I did buy two emblems for about sixty bucks and one of the blinkers in a said before by anymore. Spend any more money on this hunk of crap. Let me look in the trunk. And so the next day I look in the trunk in every single piece of trim was in the trunk so somebody got an ambitious thinking they were GonNa fix it a pain and and so it has everything even the headlight which is missing in the pictures. Has Everything So I'll just fiddle with it and learn about hydraulic roofs. Semite put my own. Convertible has no the convertible scissor top? It's called the scissor roof. It's all there it doesn't have the hydraulic motor. Which I gotTA figure out how to modify figure out but It doesn't have any canvas on the top so I'm going to get creative and try and figure out something interesting. Like an all tarp simply. Well I was GONNA say like I mean you already had the Fred Flintstone floor in on Fred Flintstone car. It had like bamboo that went up and then forward. And then there's like a piece of canvas that came over and it didn't convert all the back for like a rear window air. We'll go through. It'll probably be fine. Continue that Motif. Yeah so I mean that's just my opinion but I'm just having fun with it and it just reminded me of being a teenager and like figuring things out. I mean that's how I learned a lot so many mechanical things early on is like just wrenching on old cars and I was a kid out drag home any hundred piece of crap and start taking it apart and figuring out how to get started. So that's just my little. I wonder if a little kid me again. I

Red-winged Blackbirds Understand Yellow Warbler Alarms

"Brown headed cow. Birds ARE OBLIGATE. Brood parasites that means. They lay their eggs in the Nestle. Other birds leaving all the hard work of incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks to somebody else. Luckily many of those other species have evolved. Some anti parasitic defenses yellow warblers for example produce a certain type of call to warn other warblers about nearby cowherds. Researchers call it. A seat call is working on the yellow warbler and whenever we were doing seat called playbacks to the yellow warblers the Red Wing. Blackbirds gap showing up. That was truly a discovery. You know sort of this momentum that allowed us to to explore this question even further ecologists Mark However from the University of Illinois at urbana-champaign who ran the study. The yellow warblers seat call is called a referential alarm call because only produced for a single threat. The Brown headed cupboard and in response to the seat gall the female yellow warbler incidents attacking or mobbing the cupboard. She sneaks back to her nest and sits on a tightly so as to prevent the cupboard from being able to lay a parasitic gag. Red Wing Blackbirds. Which sometimes nest near. Warblers do not produce referential alarm calls but it turns out that they can eavesdrop on the yellow warblers calls and they respond to the seat calls the same way they do. The sounds of cowardice themselves. The results were published the Journal. Communications biology so red winged blackbirds perferred nest near Yellow warblers since the warblers provide additional vigilance against Brown headed cowherds. But it's probably a two way street from the literature. We know that yellow orders do better when they nest near Red Wing blackbird territories and that makes sense because the red wings are really aggressive. If you walk in bed off full of Red Wings you actually get physically attacked by the redwings. So they are not intimidated by large editors and so Make sense out for them to nest near the the reading. The researchers say that this is the first known evidence of animals eavesdropping on anti parasitic referential. Alarm calls these birds yellow warblers reading black birds. You know they speak different languages. They understand their own. Communication signals and systems are and what we discovered. Here is basically a bilingual. A Red Wing. Blackbird that can understand the vocalisations systems and the communication systems of another species. Young birds learned their vocalisations much. Like young humans learn languages and future research however hopes to understand the weather. The birds rely on the same underlying neurobiology to understand the calls of other species as they do when they hear the sounds of their own species. And what that might mean for our own efforts to learn additional languages.

Scientific Hiccup

"All Welcome to kiss Miss Misery. Sime your host kit chrome hoping you're healthy and staying sheltered in place today. I'm going to talk about scientific hiccups and I'll begin with the woolly mammoths arose about five point. One million years ago in Africa according to the curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated throughout Europe Asia North America. Their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing the woolly. Mammoth we know today. They began roughly two hundred fifty thousand years ago. Mammoths went extinct about ten thousand years ago. Hoops that's the first scientific hiccup more like three thousand five hundred years ago. Scientists now believe in isolated population of mammals persisted on Wrangel Island off northeastern eastern Costa Siberia and deep in Canada's Northwest Territory and World Heritage Site than Hani Valley. They were there until about three thousand seven hundred years ago. The ten thousand year more of extinction is in most textbooks though. But let's take a closer look at that date. The prominent theory that made it into most textbooks and the cyclopes. Pedia is ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through Eurasian orth America driven by the last ice age. What scientists called police to seen ice age following the food supply? If that's the case that it makes sense that some ended up in the valley because it was never touched by the last ice age and yes sponsor the mammoth have actually been found in that region. But this isn't the first theory published in a textbook as fact that is founded. It's been believed yes. Baited into text books that the continent of at Artika has been covered by ice for millions of years again. Oops scientific hiccup. The Perry reese map drawn in. Fifteen thirteen shows a northern coast of Antarctica. Ice-free the most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be so accurate three hundred years before and articles discovered but that the map shows the real coastline under the ice geological. Evidence has confirmed. How could that have happened or been charted in an ice free age four thousand years ago which is what science states? That was the last time that Arctic was ice free officials. Science has been saying all along that the ice cap which covers the Antarctic is millions of years old. The Perry reese at Arctic amount shows it the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it that could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time. Furthermore accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in that Arctic area the northern tip ended about six thousand years ago the question is who mapped Queen Maud Land of Antarctica. Six thousand years ago which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do that. I want to state at this point. That the Perry map has been validated as being real and brought back to that data. Fifteen thirteen it is not a about that which made twenty years. I pushed office something true. I want to touch on just one. More scientific kick up nestled in the ancient city of Papun Kabul. Libya are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of pyramids each block. Wade from two hundred to four hundred tonnes. Nothing unusual there. The city dates back to five three six ad yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found giant staple liked clamps. That it in place and we're used to hold the blocks together. Wait a minute. How could the indigenous people with no knowledge of metallurgy have created these clamps and worded the metal used for them? Come from? But this isn't the only case of clamps be used to hold giants Jones together and Cambodia's Angor Watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the side of the temple from a nearby mountain bias. Here's waterways close inspection. The stones that are scattered around the side has revealed carved indentations receptacles for metal clamps. Says kind of interesting. How about an eerie coincidence? Just outside the magnificent ruins of anger. What Stanton Asian Pyramid temple known as boxy CAM gone now from? Cambodia travel eight thousand miles to Guatemala and the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at to call is the temple of the Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid Guatemala. The similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that don't exist in other pyramids or temples however most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up to the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on top once there you could see. There's a small door goes inside the pyramid and there's another internal structure that looks the same basically. What you have here is an ancient civilization in Cambodia and another in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles away featuring credible similarities that no one has been able to explain. Thus my idea of being a scientific hiccup because when you read in the textbooks is different than what facts

Arctic warming puts ringed seals in peril

"I'm doctor. Anthony License and this is climate connections. Ring seal spend most of the year hidden and Arctic waters grieving through holes. They create in the thick sea ice but when seal pups are born each spring. They don't have a BLUBBER LAYER. Which is their real protection from cold. Marine Biologist Brendan. Kelly is Executive Director of a collaborative program called the study of Environmental Arctic. Change he says the seal pups spend the first months of their lives nestled in snow caves on top of the ice but as the climate warms. That snow is starting to melt earlier in the year before pups can handle the cold. The PUP is suddenly exposed to the mets and it tends to get wet at. This point gets cold at night or the temperature just goes back down again for a while and we see freezing deaths to the pumps without the protection of their snow caves. The pups are also more likely to be eaten by polar bears and other predators according to regional climate models snow depth in parts of the Ring Seals pumping habitat could be reduced by up to seventy percent by the end of the century. When you see this kind of massive habitat loss in a short time period. It doesn't bode well. They're likely to become endangered in the coming decades.

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

"You you talk to me about a little bit. When we talked previously about how this affected some homeowners. So can you tell me a little bit about? What was the most extreme situations that you saw so this didn't just you know wreck havoc in orchards. The People's lives and homes were affected. Absolutely you know. It is an insect that we say really bridges the agro urban interface where you know throughout the growing season it's an agricultural past in a lot of crops but then in the fall when it moves to potential overwintering sites to hibernate it becomes a nuisance pest for homeowners and businesses and so in the fall when the bug starts looking for potential over wintering sites. They begin Moving and flying in large numbers usually just around the fall equinoxes and thereafter. We see them moving toward homes. In fact is one of the places that we often find them. Overwintering and so it begins with large numbers sort of elating and landing on the surface of people's homes and then ultimately they settle within the cracks and crevices of homes places. That are cool tight and dry maybe under your siting around a window frame you know they get into a gable invent and over winter beneath the installation in your attic whatever But the problem is okay so now you have nonpaying residents in your home. Would you know that there there? Are they hiding aware with their often? Quite concealed in. Let's say you'd make a trip up to your attic. You know in the in the fall perhaps to get holiday decorations and you pull out a box of holiday decorations. And their between the layers of paper that you've sort of put in there to protect your ornaments are also layers of Brown marmer and these are fully adult ones. And maybe describe him for us. What do they look like? Well you know stink. Bugs are normally referred to shield bugs. And so these are large insects and they have striped antennae. They have striped legs. They kind of have a shield shaped Structure on their back that covers sort of their what we call their sore accident. Abdomen and So they're already distinct and they're kind of they're pretty big. They're bigger than most of our native species. So when you when you see them you know. They're much bigger than some of our other. Fallen vader's like we think about Asian ladybird beetles or box elder. Bugs you told a story about one shop. Who Do you want to tell that story cure? I can talk about him. This is a homeowner who had emailed me About the situation in his home and in his home he lived in an area That was Nestle between some mountain ranges and a lot of agricultural production and so in the sort of winter of two thousand eleven following the fall of two thousand and ten he was literally having thousands of Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. This is the other issue. Some of them become active during the winter and they invade people's living space so in his case he was getting thousands of them entering his living space and he began by cleaning them up with vacuum cleaners and so he had a vacuum cleaner in fact on each floor of his home and what he started to do was actually take data and so. He began by vacuuming each day and counting the number that he vacuumed up and by the time he had written his email to me he had destroyed and these are. This is a quote from him. He had destroyed twelve thousand stink bugs in his home and something like forty five days. What is that like in your sinks on your on your toothbrush sitting in your Coffee Cup and your cereal box. You know none of the places you want them to be so by the time he had gotten to spring he had removed. Twenty six thousand stink bugs from his home And so that's a tremendous Burden for homeowners to deal with. I hope I hope he had a sense of humor. He he actually he he does exactly biologist And he just recently retired and so he was a great actually. Ended up. Being a great collaborator on this project and he published that data in a peer reviewed refereed journal. My goodness okay. We have a question from bill until wack. He look good question. Actually why are they called? Stink bugs that's a great question They are referred to as stink bugs because essentially both the NYMPHS which are the immature stage and the adult have glands in their sore acts. That release what we referred to as defensive compounds and so these are you know sort of kind of you know. Some people would say foul smelling odors that could potentially Repel or at least Startled potential predators so Stink bugs in general. That's that's why they're called. They do release essentially stinky compounds. Brown marmer rated is a bit of a different smell than other native. Stink bugs Have actually they share a couple of volatile with the same volatile That are released by Salon tra- so some people have actually become sort of unable to eat cilantro anymore if they'd been invaded by numbers of I like the smell of Salah. Yeah I would turn me off. It hasn't me and I've lived with these bugs for a long time.

Zoom and MikMak

"Welcome back to season two of zeroed IPO. Today we have a very exciting couple of entrepreneurs on the show. Rachel typical graph the founder of Mick Massey founder and CEO who was called by Entrepreneur magazine one of the fifty most daring entrepreneurs and we also have eric yuan the founder and CEO of Zoom. Which as we all know has grown into a beam of video conferencing. Yeah I think what's very interesting? Here is both enterprise software entrepreneurs one who is earlier in her journey another one who is later on in his journey. He's gone public taking it public but still has a lot of memory about what it was like to be at her stage so. I think this is going to be very very interesting. Let's introduce our guests grey. Eric Yuan is the CEO and founder of Zoom and has grown zoom into a little bit of a big company. I think it's very small compared to what you're going to become. That's how he thinks about it right down. Eric started the company in two thousand eleven and appealed last year and at the IPO. The company had a market cap of a little over nine billion now less than a year later. It's at twenty one billion on the public markets. Tha that's more that's more more a little bit more. That's great that's growth node and never look at him. I never let's right notice. This market cap is not sustainable revenue. Would you talk about the revenue growth? Revenue growth is very impressive. It's about on the order of about one hundred percent year over year kind of up on a six hundred plus million dollar revenue year consensus estimates. We're not seeing anything out of the ordinary here. That is very impressive. And when you can see that kind of growth that kind of scale that's something. That's very exciting. Well before we go any further. I want to introduce Rachel. Tipo graph the CEO and founder of MIC MAC which is a fast growing startup. And there's a lot of things I want to ask you about and talk to You. About part of the purpose of this show is to hear from you about how you're growing the company. What your hopes and aspirations for at our and any kind of obstacles that you see ahead that perhaps not me but the other two leaders of public companies might be able to chime in with some experience. Let me ask you to describe MC MAC for our listeners and talk a little bit about what the company does share so mic. Mac were a marketing ECOMMERCE platform fortune. Five hundred brands license our software to better understand their consumers by connecting digital invest minced. Online retail insights. So essentially when I put a dollar into facebook what does that mean for my performance at Walmart for example so my clients span. Campbell's Hasbro Lego L'OREAL Nestle essentially. If you sell it Amazon Target Walmart you will become my client because you live in darkness with retail data. Let Me Brag a little bit about you. If I may at age twenty four you became the global director of digital and social media at gap which seems pretty young to have that role. I wasn't doing much of anything at twenty four. I think I was taken out the mail for running that role at gap at the time. But then you walked away from that to start this company out of your apartment. I believe in Brooklyn that must have been a difficult decision similarly Eric. You had a big role at Webex. You were leading the engineering team. You had hundreds of engineers. You said your wife. Hey I think I need to go start this company. And she didn't like the idea yes. She's sort of an online at likely. That idea by almost field to graduate was twenty. Four years ordered the three of us. Degenerates Rachel Rachel? With killing by the way the other thing that I love about what I've heard about your career is Gary Chuck who was an investor. My company and I believe invested in yours describes you as a fucking gangster quote unquote and lucky to have his support. Let's talk about MC MAC and the growth of online video and the commercialization of online video. Obviously Eric has a massive video business. What you're trying to do with mic-mac some people describe it as infomercials for the web. I've heard the term mini-martial Did you come up with that may I coined? Yeah and the idea is that it was very hard before mic-mac to see video and buy something you had to jump through hoops. And the bounce rate was like above ninety percent when you click through and now with mic-mac the bounce rate comes down to often like just ten percent right and a thesis of MIC. Mac was I was a gap. I was seeing the growth of video. I was seeing the change in the customer journey so gap Dot Com. The home page was the most traffic web page when I started when I left the product. Detail pages were seen five. X. Amount of traffic so all of a sudden all of these landing pages were actually becoming the heartbeat of conversion but no senior leader was paying attention to them and then finally the rise of Amazon so the early signs at the major retailers were about to become new wall gardens. And if you talk to major. Cpt brands they would be investing hundreds of millions of dollars whether is in digital video social paid search programmatic and having no idea what the outcome was on the other side. So in your case you have this insight and you know it's a good insight. I'm going to start a company but you leave a massive company and now you're this tiny little entity all by yourself and you have your your powers. You have the insight that the bravest lady in the Roman. You're like little little the honest truth. We said we tell the truth. And you have these massive companies that could easily swoop in and take your idea like talk to us about. How do you navigate that? And I want to hear also from Eric because he was in the same boat as you leaving Webex. Yeah it starts with an insight. That's not the hard part. The hard part is executed and initially. My competitor advantage right is speed to market. I'm nimble I can move faster fast. Forward all of a sudden I start proving myself and then other companies begin to pay attention. Because obviously if I'm successful must mean that there's a larger opportunity out there. How did that make you feel what was your reaction to the you know? The encroachment potential encroachment. My first reaction was. This is a good thing because you don't want to be a lone ranger business. It means you're you're not doing something to market if you're the only one marquette so I was excited I'm like yeah like competition bring it on but then when you look at the size of those companies so I currently thirty employees my competitors have upwards of five thousand employees. Then you start to get a little bit scared because they could put you know. Fifty salespeople against the southwest territory and then no one at Kirk Dr Pepper. We're GonNa talk to me and those are. The dynamics began to change for me last year. Which was a like. I got a suit up. Because there's people who can be louder and market right now. I still have the utmost confidence in my product. I have most confidence in my ability to lead but the reality is that they're bigger than me. Eric talked pretty shortly to catch up. Because speed everything up today have thirty. You may not know in five years. Probably have five thousand or six thousand you know more than your competitors as

"To the graphic nature of this king pins crimes listener discretion is advised. This episode includes discussions of murder and assault that some people may find offensive. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Haji bug show hated helicopters. They flew overhead constantly a never ending reminder of the American invaders. He couldn't even enjoy a cup of tea without it being interrupted by their buzzing he wondered where the choppers were going. This time the. Us military had been daily nuisance in Afghanistan for a decade but lately the foreigners had started targeting bogged chose heroin labs in the mountains. They were blowing them up one by one destroying his equipment and terrorizing his workers. It was costing him a fortune. The noise of the chopper blades was deafening and only kept getting louder. That's when Bob Show realized the helicopters weren't passing by. They were coming for him. I'm Howell argued and I'm Kate Leonard and this is kingpins every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power changed them and how it changed the community around them. This episode is about Haji bogged show who ran one of the most prolific drug trafficking rings in the world from the nineteen nineties. Two thousand nine at par cast. We're grateful for you our listeners. You allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at Parkas network? And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help us. On June twelfth. Two Thousand Twelve seventy year old. Haji bug show stood before a judge in Washington DC. He was a long way from his home in Afghanistan and he might never be going back. Bob Show had just been convicted for drug distribution and narcoterrorism. His lawyers had advised him not to testify at the trial. They didn't want him to incriminate himself but at his sentencing hearing bogged show refused to stay silent. He ranted about the witnesses who had been called to testify against him. They were liars and criminals. According to Bob Show. He called himself an honorable man. A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.

guests Voice Summit Newark New Jersey really was a big success this year I the opportunity to moderate a mainstay panel three people that I respect are on the frontlines of enterprise voice assistant adoption Josh belly and a senior direct senior digital innovation manager with Nestle he's in the Silicon Valley Innovation outpost in I've met many times in San Francisco Brian Matthews I've spent a good amount of time with him up in Toronto he's the head of the voice innovation lab for the Royal Bank of Canada again some really interesting things get a little bit of an international at least a non US flavor to how organizations are approaching voice assistance and we also have Michelle Malkin axe she's the product lead for Conversational Ai for the American Red Cross Large Global Organization very complex she's doing really interesting things that I hadn't even considered so really look forward to sharing that with you today you will hear me first then Josh followed by Ryan then Michelle let's get started Okay real excited have you all here today okay because you're lucky to be able to listen to some of the stories inexperienced people on the stage one of the things that I have come across cost many times looking or having conversations with large organizations voice is it's not necessarily about what implement it's not necessary surly about how I design it it's like Oh we're a big organization everything has to have an organizational structure right so it's one of the things we're going to talk about this probably be meantime you'll hear this discussion here today and so I think that'll be really insightful for some people plus we'll talk a little bit about some of the things we're doing which is very interesting as well so we'll start off Jospin from Nestle why don't you introduce yourself and tell the audience how you first got involved voice and some of the things that you're doing sure okay I'm Jeff Valley and I'm I'm part of Nestle Nestle that all people will usually be chocolate company it's actually it's a big food company based in Salaam one hundred fifty years old and I'm on a team in San Francisco called the Silicon Valley Mission outposts and we've got a lot of liberty to explore how new technologies and new business model those are changing the way consumers live and exist in in this world and as part of that voice is one area of significant interest it's changing the rules of the aim our our first skills built about three and a half years ago we wanted to understand what it was like how complex it how is it different than building for the web or heart phones and we built a pretty cool cooking skill it had a visual component of visual guide any browser a tablet laptop could use it it was well before echo show doc sadly it does not have as many users as show but it was good it was great learning and that was used to educator leadership around look voices man and it's going to be global it's coming faster than you could ever imagine we're going to be ready and actually Christine Hartland my colleagues in the audience we've got a team in Barcelona digital hub that is industrialized voice to be able to serve the rest of the world I'm glad you brought up goodness which was the name of that original skill because I think it was the first multi-modal skill using Lexis Yep because we went to the web was really innovative I actually still intimated to this day there's probably some interesting things channel switching to okay thank you Josh Ryan Matthews I've known each other for a couple of years Ryan's with Royal Bank of Canada why don't you introduce yourself often tell everybody about what you've been doing along the lines of voice perfect okay my name's Ryan Mathews head of the voice loud for Royal Bank of Canada it's funny last year when I came down to this conference my name Tiger and I'd be introduced last salt and saying hey I'm from NBC and they just look at me like what's rb see so this have we'll make of Canada on my on my name tag so we similarly to Joshua RBC's one hundred fifty year old financial institution We've got sixteen million finds across thirty six countries five thousand employees were Canada's biggest bank one of the largest world by market cap I I've got a long history markets in my voice writing in Lagos in that space for a little while but it was also really involved in grassroots innovation from that department when I had the opportunity to kind of come over to more the enterprise side of the bank and have an opportunity to kind of forum a voice can jump at the opportunity so I've been building my team over the last eight to ten Johnson there in the crowd over there you can wave high and it's been a really exciting getting getting and building this high performing team in a space that quite frankly is insure me okay thank you Ryan actually you didn't say what you've been doing voice like do you WanNa talk about your project so couple of things that hoppy kind of be Party Organization for we were first in Canada launch a voice by mentioned all center also I into Canada to launch payments five Oyster Siri some of the work that might have been working on can't talk laudable because it's not yet released unfortunately but it is coming out in a couple of months definitely stay tuned for that but we are looking at a multi modal world device agnostic world and it's not it's going to be a little bit more than just an action or skill because recognizing that the market has moved quite a bit to be competitive in this space deliver something really cool and innovative thanks okay right we've just met recently last few weeks so this is great and I'm learning every time I talked to you why don't you share with the audience a little bit more about American Red Cross because very very large organization obviously Taylor yeah you have a slightly different set of needs and expectations goals around the space yeah absolutely so I come from the innovation aimed at the American Red Cross Chopin's who's heard of the Red Cross everyone writes we have a very wide scope to our mission it's very diverse we have you know blood donation disaster response and I think that's what most folks think of when I think the Red Cross the Pink Oh the folks that go in for superstorm Sandy Hurricane Katrina nine eleven etc and that is very the what we do training services things like CPR training first aid training etc service to the armed forces so I could go on the purpose that'd be animation team at the Red Cross is to leverage disruptions in the market from investments and technology and use that to drive forward our humanitarian mission so our innovation function is not dissimilar to what you would see in fortune one hundred fortune five hundred companies but we are unique and that the bottom line of what we're doing is humanitarian focus in addition to opportunities for revenue generation or cost savings etc..

"In place for about ten billion dollars for their skin, health division, and some saying that this might be assigned that they are abandoning their hopes of being a global wellness brand of wellness company, which, as you may recall that something that a few years ago, they were promoting themselves as the wellness company, but actually back in September of last year. I think it was at the board meeting, they announced that they're going to realize their focus along the lines of nutrition, health and wellness. And they're going to do that in the areas of food beverage and nutritional products or supplements, and I think that makes perfect sense for a brand with a kind of history that Nestle does. And it doesn't necessarily mean that they are abandoning wellness in many ways. I think it means it doubling down. I mean you could argue that these products under the skin health division had things like sport, which is the botulinum toxin and these things in it other inject. Ables like wrestling, which I guess is hollering acid. I think but, you know, you could argue that whilst those things might make people feel good. They don't necessarily always going to be healthy for you. So you know, I don't have a major problem with the that move. I do think that Nestle probably more than any other company or as much as any other company do have an opportunity to become a global wellness brand, but they have to take it seriously. And I don't know that these products. I mean, they launched this division anyway. The skin health division in a partnership with Lori hill, the cosmetic giant back if you years ago, and then eventually they decided to take it on their own and many would say that I just haven't been able to get traction with that deserves and so- selling it for jeez. Ten billion dollars. Not a bad price is probably not a bad idea. So it'll be interesting to see what Nestle positions themselves how they position themselves over the next few years. And whether in fact, they start looking at other areas of wellness with they stay in their lane. Chain of food beverage, and nutritional products, just an observation already. Let's today, thanks for

"View Marion Nestle saw the ad to from initial standpoint. It's absolutely hilarious. And I laughed all the way through it. Nestle is a nutrition expert at New York University. She says that sugar is used to feed yeast during the fermentation process. It doesn't care where the sugar comes from from physiological standpoint in the body. It makes absolutely no difference at all the east can't tell them apart. So why call out corn syrup? Well, they're trying to say that they're ingredients are healthier and more natural than the ingredients in the competitors beers. So after a millions of dollars spent throwing shade on corn syrup the difference between bud and others. According to Nestle isn't much of a difference at all in other story. Now, the director of the Oscar winning two thousand six film, the lives of others is back with a new story called never look away. It is nominated for two Oscars this year, like its predecessor the film confronts Germany's past. At this time on an even larger canvas here's NPR's, the Lao? Karachi? Modern Germany was born in the ashes of nineteen Forty-five. It's a society made out of total physical, and psychological destruction Germany is constantly wrestling with its history that's max Richter who wrote the music for never look away. There's even a compound word in German for what he's describing fair Goggin heights. Befell too gung. It's a word that means sort of grappling with the past journalist translator. Anna Altman wrote about the film for the new Republic. There were a lot of political crimes that took place there. And I think the drive is to document those rather than to pave over them confronting the past is exactly what many postwar German artists have done and that movement inspired filmmaker flory on Henkel from donor smart. We cannot trust anything that has been done in the past. Because look what the past led to lead to this Nazi catastrophe. Let us not trust anything that comes from the past list look completely within and let us build a new free. Art fund donors. Mark's new film is a biographical drama.
