A highlight from Something a little monstrous with Isabel Caas
"At Breaking the Glass Slipper we believe it is important to have conversations about women and issues of intersectional feminism within science fiction, fantasy and horror. To continue to do so we need your help. Please consider supporting us on Patreon. Join the conversation by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Hello and welcome to Breaking the Glass Slipper. I'm Charlotte Bond. I'm Megan Lee. And I'm Lucy Hounsom. From the very first tales of the supernatural, vampires have held a special place in the hearts of storytellers. Over the years they've been reinvented again and again. In movie terms we've had The Elegant and the Elfin in Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire, while Gary Oldman gave us a seductive but sinister version of Dracula himself in Coppola's film. With regards to books we've had endearing but vicious vampire children in Let the Right One In, and Stephen King himself claims that his vampire novel Salem's Lot is one of his favourites, linking the dying of small towns with the curse of the vampire. With the exception of the Swedish Let the Right One In, most of our well -known vampires are decidedly Western. But in The Vampires of El Norte, Isabel Canas has created her own brand of very savage vampires that face off against Vaqueros. Isabel is joining us in this episode to talk about what inspired her Mexican vampires and what her novel says about being a woman in 1840s Mexico fighting not just against supernatural beings but against the expectations of society. Isabel, thank you so much for joining us. Please tell our listeners a little bit about yourself and your books. Thank you so much for having me. I've been looking forward to this. I love, love, love this podcast. So getting the email from my publicist saying that this was in the books, I was like, yes, I'm so excited. Oh, it's lovely to have you. I am a Mexican -American speculative fiction author. I live in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a recovering academic, so we might get a little nitty and gritty when it comes to my research and talking about folklore and the kinds of things that informed Vampires of El Norte, which is, I guess you could bill it, and it has been billed as a supernatural Western set in what is now South Texas in 1846 at the beginning of the Mexican -American war. And it's about two childhood sweethearts named Nena and Nestor who are separated at the age of 13 because of a tragedy and are thrown together again nine years later on the road to war. And they have to defend their home Rancho from threats, both human and supernatural. And the supernatural, like spoiler alert, is the vampires. I have to admit, I've read lots of vampire novels, but none quite like yours. So how are vampires traditionally represented in Mexican literature? Are they like you present them in your books, which is kind of not quite human, but humanoid and sort of vicious and savage and unnatural? Is that what they are in Mexican literature or is there a branch of them in there? Do you tell us? Well, yeah, when it comes to Mexican, when it comes to literature, I would draw a line between literature and folklore. This is my academic coming out. But also there are, I guess, many kinds of vampires when we talk about literature and folklore in Mexico. I think Mexican literature in particular, in terms of genre literature, we have Silvia Moreno -Garcia's Certain Dark Things, which features a vampire in modern Mexico City. It is fantastic. But when it comes to modern literature, there's a lot of influence from the West. The Anglo American tradition of the vampire is, of course, something that occurs in pop culture. When it comes to folklore, however, when I was researching this book, I came across some interesting stuff. The original idea that was like the seed of this novel took place in a different part of Mexico, which is where the book ended up being set, which is now South Texas, which is where my family has hailed from for generations. Originally, I was looking at more central Mexico, maybe like in the environs of Mexico City. In the state of Tlaxcala, there are legends of what are called bloodsucking witches or Tlahualpuches and these entities, I guess, could fall under the heading of vampire, given their predilection for blood. They're very different from the Western European vampire that most people are familiar with from pop culture. So I was fascinated by these creatures who are, I believe exclusively women, and their affliction is something that they are born with and that manifests with puberty. There's so much to pick apart there. When I was putting the book together, I realized that they deserve their own novel. I was kind of back to square one.

"A ton of these all hands on guys like you. You don't wanna think of a world where garrett cole gets knocked out and like the first or second inning that would be a not good hopefully. It's a home wildcard game. That's what you want. that's what you play for. What they have the control their destiny right now but on the off chance that he doesn't like you can't tell me that this team has never been more prepared for situation like that with a guy like nestor and he'll behind him who can easily just absorb the next like six innings between them and get it too low iza and get it to chapman like there are a ton of dudes who right now are in the the rotation and have been like borderline ace level guys. Who if you need them to. The playoffs can easily be the is. Just give you three all out. Innings of weirdness and think about think about following kohl with nestor and then falling. Nestor with he'll that's fun. I mean that's very fun. And even just nester. And he'll that's a fun playoff game. Maybe one goes for one goes three like it's funky. It's fun it's interesting. i don't hate anything about it. I let's let's talk a little bit about you. Know let i mean. We're going to talk about luke voight agan before we sign off. I do want to give the twins credit. though wh- mean we beat the shit out of them. three dominant victories. They almost came back from six. Nothing down in the first game kind of sort of six nothing to six four six nine six three two six four two seven four seven five then went with squad and the game the next two games. They were nowhere close but a lot of people are doing all you. He's always beat the twins. It's true the twins it's hilarious. It's weird makes no sense but a lot of people are following that by being like they're worse than normal this year they're terrible. You know what that's said nothing about anything. Prior to coming to new york which again the twins always have problems here but prior to coming to new york the minnesota twins who have struggled this season foreshore went to cincinnati early august august third and fourth split that series seven five and lost six five since as now in the wild card. That's like one of the hot teams in baseball. Split that series on the road went to houston took three from the astros minnesota twins. Oh sorry took three of four from the astros. Nari read that wrong one. Another gate got another game. One it white sox come to minnesota. Minnesota takes two three raise. Come to minnesota. Minnesota takes two three indians golden minnesota minnesota takes two of three. One of those wins was a walk off. Two of those indians wins. We're walkup so the twins are coming in having split series with the hottest team in baseball taking three or four from the astros beating the white sox and raise and indians and three series in the yankees decimate them in three games. Great job yankees. Twins are at their hottest. The hottest the twins ben all year twins are supposed to win the division easily. Are i mean. I don't know people like the white sox playoff team. They aren't and that's fine but they've played like a playoff team in august and he just took them.

"Sets the tone and what is nester done. I'm not saying he's the i'm not saying he's garrett cole ask but we needed. We needed a win against the mets july fourth. What he do after. We were unable to get a pitcher to throw the first two innings of the game without giving up multiple runs. He goes three and a third allows one. We win for to save that disaster of a weekend after chapman blue that game and then Whatever the fuck happened on. Saturday blocked off from my brain. Dangerous got destroyed. I think the bigger hormone got owned. Yeah yeah it was bad either way. That was when the offense couldn't get anything done in the starting rotation even though was relatively good they were just putting the offense and a whole right off the bat. It was the worst. It was the worst Confluence of things that you could ever imagine. And then he goes to houston the next week. Four and two thirds gives up no runs the yankees win for nothing shutout. The astros relatively easy work. That series obviously was great until chad. Green blue the final game before the break. All nestor set the tone in garrett. Cole went saturday right. So nassar set the tone on that. Friday hundred twenty-nine pitch performance that seemingly thought would bring us momentum on sunday but didn't then he gets an around by boston a little bit He had not pitched in. Almost i think ten days or two weeks weeks two weeks from covert and the all star break then his next start after. We need a win against the raise. What does he do. five innings. One earned five strikeouts. Then he gets the job done against seattle five innings to earn. That's good you'd like you said knocked around against royals but gets the sunday series win against the white sox would six innings pitched his longest outing of the year and then he follows it up again with seven innings against the twins so at this point i love his change of pace as well that that's that his his his delivery throws off timing for hitters..

"Corey kluber needs to come back and and so does klay homes complicated. There's yeah there's no one removable here. It's like you very quickly. He is the only name stood out to me. Otherwise you're dumping alberta brave no thank you again. He's been a borderline closer for like two and a half three weeks now. Lucas leaky. no thanks. Don't want to get rid of him. Juan de peralta hasn't given up neurons since coming back from the i l. joey. Rector years has been great. So i mean bottom. Line tyler wade. Velazquez and nestor and heaney related the foremost removable names on the roster. And esther's going to get a playoff start in corey. Kluber is coming back unless they decide. He's not maybe they decide. He's not maybe reno is probably coming back for a bullpen. Roll down the stretch. But maybe they decide he's not i mean there's no way there's gonna work out lewis. He'll is not currently on the roster. I will remind you are best starter over the last ever weeks. Not on the roster. He's been co up and down roller coaster replacement for everybody upset by the fact that he keeps losing his rosters. This is why because there's currently no available roster spots Again not the worst problem to have the worst problem to have. Is our oster sucks. There's twenty roster spots. What do we do with them. It's called the baltimore orioles corollary. it's like oh my god there's so many roster spots we don't have a single player who's worth it. What what do we do. Not the worst thing in the world to be the hottest team in major league baseball on contending with an overstuffed rosser with unexpected contributors. But atas earn boyd. The unexpected contributors do have to leave We're going to take a quick break after we take that break though. We're going to have to assess nestor. Cortez junior someone who at this juncture absolutely cannot lose.

"On this roster for more than like another couple of days. And that's insane but again what i mean. How do you demoted him. But also how do you keep him. What do you do unless you pretend. Laboratories is a season ending injury. You can do that if you want. I mean somebody's gonna get hurt at some point this roster never stays all the for that long but how can you justify demoting but you can't justify keeping it gets tough too because look. We're expecting corey. Kluber back in the next couple of weeks on. So that's gonna how you home ed's to have the free up and klay homes have to free up other roster spot so i really don't know what you do Velazquez obviously is not going to stay. I would like him to stay. I i love his defense. It's a shame because we have been watching him over these last A week it's been about a week and a half or something like that. No long And you can just tell the you could tell the difference you can you can look at gleyber torres botched you can watch them both play and you could just tell labor towards is not a natural shortstop and that's not really a knock against him. I don't i the the organization is right. He's a better second baseman than he is. A shortstop i understand. He came up in the minors playing a lot of short but The natural instincts aren't there. It's more passive defense than it is. Aggression you've seen velazquez Take charge a ton of balls in the infield and rip him over the first base so many times glacier towards it feels keys aiming to throw to first base or waiting the ball to take that extra bounce to him This is simply the tests if you've been watching yankees baseball all year and it just goes to show that the gifts that fielders have a shortstop it's very instinctual and andrew velasquez very much has that instinct. It's also helpful that he's switch hitter and he is obviously not the greatest city in the world but he's certainly aggressive and he likes to try to hack at pitches when he when he thinks he's getting the right one Thirteen games not overly impressive with a to forty two average. But he's homered. He's got six guys. He stolen a couple of bags. He's got a triple in their six runs scored in those thirteen game so stuff's happening when when he's in the lineup and you know what when you're when you're glove is excelling in the field. Not everybody's going to really be zoned in the microscope on you when you're you're in the batter's box and that's kind of what's been happening with labor torres. His glove hasn't been great is defense is look very passive and then everyone's expecting oh but this guy's got thirty five home or power so we can expect something very good from him on offense. Can't we not this year. I don't know why I hope labor's going through the motions and trying to figure out what's wrong. The conventional wisdom would suggest that it the the problem is. He's playing a he's back at shortstop full-time and He doesn't really have confidence down. And it might be affecting his approach plate So it just. It's crazy because velazquez really not not blowing not blown away with numbers on offense. But he's he's.

"We are rolling. Baby we are. It's really exciting. We get some happy monday pods. How how long has it been. This is the first. This is the first month where we've had a couple of happy monday. We never had never had more than one in a single month since the start of the season. And now we're here we. We got good topics to talk about. We no longer a pod for haters. It's no. I only not a hater pot. No the haters. Have unsubscribe d- Now we got some actual yankee fans hopefully tuning in to hear what we have to say some optimistic things Some encouraging thanks. We'll were liking what we're seeing from the team or liking the the motivation year were liking. How team is battling against adversity remaining. Resilient it's something we kind of we've been hoping for for the better part of three or four months and now the rattling winds as if the twenty nineteen new york yankees would be rattling off lands. Ice tend to victory and ice twenty. Four runs in three games is like to see. You got your good arms on the mound against an inferior team in twins. Jamison tyrone esther cortez junior garrett cole. Everybody gets a win. The offense pummels the opposition a took long enough. But here we are. I know. I know it's a little bit. You could sit. The haters will love to hear this because you do look back at the new york yankees in. You're saying well yes. They're on an incredible. what are they. Nineteen and four in their last Twenty three games or something. That sounds right. Yeah and it's like. Oh yeah but they needed a momentous trade deadline to make it happen and like yeah you look back. And you examine the yankees lineup. And you think they should probably be able to do this without getting anthony. Rizzo joey gallo. But it is what it is. Got a couple of these acquisitions. It's kind of lit lit a fire under the yankees and now we're leading the wildcard at the moment. Four and a half back of the raise. Any news good news. This point for the yankees. I'm happy hearing anything about them. On encouraged by what i'm seeing. I like anybody who's taking the field at this point And i really do everybody's everybody's just doing what i like to see. Andrew velasquez's been a breath of fresh air at shortstop. Nestor cortez in the rotation has been You can't keep his spot at this point and its role in. We're starting to see the victory that we we'd been hoping for for so long now and now the the the the test is on because we got the braves monday tuesday than a day off and then four game series against oakland who were neck and neck with in the wild card race. And then it's at the angels probably be should handle them but the angels You pronounce his dead after that angel series in the in early july so Work still needs to be done. But you gotta like where the yankees are at this point and there's a lot of things to look forward to in some rosser questions that we definitely do after addressing in dive a little bit deeper into definition a good problems..

"We're going to be pissed off and we're gonna jump to the conclusion Quasi plan like this. He's not closed. Do this and one thing. I always like to think about. Obviously it's a different sport. But michael jordan always brought brought up the point. Not that i'm comparing her michael jordan. Yeah he was brings up the point that he's taken like what like nine hundred. Something like game winning shots and he's he's only made like a small amount of them people only remember him for his small amount of them. But he's when you look at the numbers he's he's missed so many game winning shots that weren't clutch and obviously we don't remember him for those people. Don't hold hold those against him but just kind of interesting to see how people sort of perceived these different moments players have at the end of the day. The new york yankees fans judge no pun intended the way a player is received or judged by the championships by the by what happens in the playoffs. Bottom line end of story. that's it that is what yankees fans look at. An aaron judge has not won a championship. He hasn't had a moment or been part of a team that have had a moment to win a championship. If and when we are fortunate enough to see that happen the narrative which it will it will absolutely change because yankees fans are driven by championships. There's no doubt about it especially when you have the payroll that is out there. The names on this team that are out there the expectations you need them to perform. There's a different level of expectations. And i think it's a very tough situation for him just because of what's come behind him but again i got no more confidence than than than anybody in anybody else on this team against dj lemay. Who's the other guy. That i would put up there in a big moment. I wanted to judge up. And i think that's probably the right way. That's the right way to think about it And i agree. I agree one hundred percent. I like i said. Aaron judge is good in high leverage spots. He's just not as good as he is in the other leverage spots. That's okay but that's ultimately what he's judged against the for the punt again so that's just sort of when you're when you're the best player on the team and you're the most popular player on the team. You gotta live with that kind of stuff. Yeah and i think he's totally fine with ed. This is this guy is talking about. Last night. he's been on. Fire scorched talking about. How he's he can't wait till he gets locked. It just like a little what that that kind of stuff. It's like it's it's it's just the way he he just talks. I in a way that is. It's fine f- eater 'isms in the past. Every now and again he gets a little testy and did you see him quote tweet. eduardo perez. on twitter I was one of the kansas city games when judge got thrown out at the plate and edward up residence. I go need the big man to get a better. Secondary lead in judge goes crying emoji. These experts what they're talking about or something like that it's like he's kinda right. You have a good secondary leila understand why he did that yet. It's whatever but get better secondarily. Probably but every now and again he gets a little sensiti and he'll he'll i eighty five percent of the time he's just like keep it to himself businesses usual. I've noticed this year that he's been a little bit more extroverted in the way that he's showing his emotions even with like other pitchers start thing with l. Too when he yes well. He's done that in the past. He's on like kind of stuff like that. He did with music but like even in game if like if a pitcher is throwing up an end and throws a little like hell give a look now out out to Outside the pitchers mound and whereas before he would just bury his head and kind of backup like even. Today there was a that was they came in up an end and he took his got damn time getting back into the box. Making sure that you you understand that you know that stats you. Don't you don't throw. He's just i don't know he's got a bit of a different demeanor this year that i've noticed i like that it's a little bit of. That's a swag that that comes with a guy that need it. You need that to to perform. I also like how on a think it's on instagram. He after every series win he posts like a mini like high video. Or something like that Just a pump fans up and stuff like that. Which i think is cool reminds me deedee a little bit with his his instagram post. Beat yeah i think part of part of being a team leader also that sort of public scho- even if it is just public show but all right so good conversation that i think we're all in agreement that judges judges clutch enough still the big moment in the playoffs. That's what he needs and they add it has to result in a win and that's partially unfair to him but also at the same time. The whole team needs it. Hope team needs to prove that they're not playoff jokers because so far they've been playoff jokers. Yeah let's get some. Let's get some bodies back on the team first and then see where the where the cards fall. i mean. that's that's essentially what's happening right now. We need bodies and then we'll all right. That's going to wrap it up for today. We will be back at you again. Maybe mid week. Let's.

"You watch him play every day and you could just you see how he has expanded his own. He's actually you know he's he's been able to identify balls or the plate too much better. I don't have the d the metrics to back that up. I don't have the The the nerd stats to back that up. It's just be watching the games every single day and the confidence that i haven't a player and i have that confidence in him i got. I got no more confidence than anybody else. Dj lemay you. It'd be the only guy just because of the track record but there's nobody else. I'd rather have a big situation. What do you think. Aaron judge's strikeout percentages this year. Do you have in front of you. Yes i do. You want me to tell you for how about this. His career percentage is thirty point. Three percent what do you think is percentages this year twenty-four bob. Guess things a little lower than thirty. Say twenty six bob pretty much now but it's twenty five point nine percent. He striking out less this year than it has in previous years. See the eye test is good for something the eight yeah and i would whatever he just. He just looks like a more complete. He looks more comfortable. He looks like he's got more control of the of the strike zone. He's he's just up there looking different and i honestly before even big situations i still have the confidence i think as a fan when you're thinking about a clutch player it's it's a matter of who'd you have the most confidence in as well i guess he's also a big home runs. You know if you look at all the numbers You don't you. Don't see the consistency like you did with a guy like derek jeter who essentially had the exact same numbers he did in. I was just going to bring that up so he had moments seaside moments. He's made phenomenal place in the field. He's he's he's. I think clutch performer. I think in the moment big. Aaron judge does buckle down in. I have i have confidence. So the the one of the my favorite stats from derek. Jeter is that his career batting average in his playoff batting average are virtually the same. It was like one or two percentage points off and when you realize that he had basically multiple seasons worth of postseason play. It's not just a small sample size. And i because he played a while ago i don't think fan graphs has the leverage. But i'd be curious to know in leverage situations what judge what jitters stats are. And if we're using the same logic to measure aaron judge. He performed worse in high lever situations than he does in medium and low lever situations. Yes he's better than league average which is good but he is worse than he normally is in the pressure moments. Yeah i mean the the sample size again. We need to have a larger sample size for that as well as we go on for his first career. He's got a pretty good pretty good size right now And if we're looking in the postseason as well you're you're up against better competition. You're up against today's. You gave me a lot. More specialized Pitcher so you're getting the best of the next of pitch when you're right we're not. We're not just comparing him junior but it's impossible. It's an impossible thing to do. But again i look i don't know how else to say it. Besides the fact that. I have confidence in him. If you can into other name another player either either one of you know your side. Your is who came over to the team. I wasn't really thinking your point lighthouse. I have a. I do have a level of confidence in from what we've seen in the past but again it hasn't i haven't seen enough for for him to give me anything that i haven't seen from chicago but yeah i i don't know other else on this team that that people want up in a big situation. That's a good point. That's a good way to think about it and to use one of bob stats here. The only player since two thousand seventeen to have more go ahead or game-tying hits in the seventh inning or later than aaron judge is gleyber correct. Die that right yes. That's how i read it to you. And i'll tell you what cut you not long. Labor door is up in a big situation. I will tell you this. The other thing about the the narrative from yankees fans is that we did. Derek jeter play. We saw great teams with great clutch hitters performing big moments. So it's almost like we're ready for it to happen because we've seen it in the past and subconsciously we compare those moments to the other ones. We've seen in the playoffs. So when you do that after you've seen you know. The jeeter teams those championship teams. That it's a two thousand nine. Yes you're looking at at amazing amazing runs historic don't happen historic and probably won't happen and the same thing with the bullpen. I tweeted this out today. As i was just like praying that the yankees didn't blow the lead in the ninth inning. It's at for twenty five years even on teams. That weren't so great. The yankees basically had locked down end of game. Obviously mariana rivera. But then david robertson was pretty damn good. They had that one year of raphael soriano. He was pretty damn good and then they went to andrew miller. I was pretty damn good and then aroldis chapman pretty damn good and now we're sitting here and it's like throw shit against the wall. Is that britain. Could actually have the balls to pitch chad green. Let's see if he can get through the ninth inning. Lucas liqi sure. Why not. it's like we're not. We're not accustomed to this. We are not conditioned to watch this kind of bullpen. In the late innings. But you know what this happens all across baseball. This team's live. Yeah i also. I also think fans we sometimes do have short memory like aaron judge the last couple of days. He's had big hits in late in the game a week from now if he's in a big position in the nines and he strikes out..

The Art and Science of Breath With Author James Nestor
"Did it particularly interesting experiment that you talk about in the book that is to take your mouth shut now. Anybody listening might wonder why on earth would want want take their mouth shut. Sumi could explain. Both why is interesting key and be what. Your experience was so lot of us. Think that the pathway through which we take in breath doesn't matter the mouth the knows who cares were dispersed as breath in. It's getting into our lungs and that's fine and a lot of the medical community. Believe this as well because they know that the body can compensate for different ways of breathing but compensation is different from being healthy. So the more. I started talking with ranallah gist and other experts. I was working with. Dr jack are nyack down at stanford numerous interviews with him and he kept explaining all of these essential functions that the nose plays in our health mental functions physical functions. I mean it goes on and on and on and it turns out that from about twenty five to fifty percent of the population. Habitually mouth breathes. So we don't get any of the benefits of nasal breathing when we're breathing through our mouths so it was part of my research. I wanted to see if i could improve my breathing over the course of a year and i took cat scans before and after and adopted different breeding habits in one of them and i know. The sounds sketchy. But they're studying this at stanford and their doctors who have been prescribing. This for decades is at night especially issues a teeny piece of tape. Put over your lips so that you are not going to be mouth breathing at night and so much of our health depends on those two channels and for breathing through her mouth for third of her life.

"The easiest way to make a fighter look good just put them on the pats because you control it he's punches. You like you could smack the pads. Make the punches out harder right you can. You can pull the pat make the punches. Look harder right so when i'm watching him on the pads. He's doing what he would he likes to do. He's he's throwing punches from a distance right. He's he's doing his natural strengths. So he's not really working on his weaknesses because he lost that second flight because he got mauled on the inside he got out muscled on the inside so they should be simulating a real flights. If you're on the paths with someone like that you gotta get in there and you gotta crowd them. You got a bump them you got. You've gotta teach wilder. When he gets in there and leans on them. Give them the book. Give them the button. Create the space with the bump. Give them a little bump. You know what i'm saying. Give him a little push off and you know you gotta make him pull back. So he's leaning on you you pull back. Let him fall forward. These are all things you gotta work on. You gotta work on how to deal. When when this guy's gonna body you on the inside he ain't gonna let you get the space to throw a jab and turn the right hand all but he didn't he doesn't need someone hitting the pet like i. I remember. I used to be at the gym. You know a girl will come up to me. Hey can you show me how to throw punches. And then i'd be on the pads it'd be like boom boom like making punches like rock. Then you can punch baby like. Because i wanted to come back and train with me tomorrow because i want to be governor right. That's that's that's how you gotta make. That's that's like a confidence builder right so you so you making this. Do look good and you're going out of your way to make this look this dude. Look good but you're not working on on on the weaknesses create. You're not correcting mistakes. And you're not adding a new wrinkle. He's doing what he he normally does. He trains themselves. He trains himself and he got somebody in there. That's going to let them train themselves. That's going to be the yes-men day you go there. You go come on every punchy throws there you go. Oh like he's a man ositive reinforcement. What here's the thing. Nobody's perfect you walking around all day right whether you with your your woman or your wife. Whatever and she's sitting there saying honey. I love you i love you. You can't love me that much. you can't be telling me. I love you every five minutes right. Nobody's that good right one of them saying you can't give you can't get somebody. Unconditional praise when you give somebody unconditional. Praise that's the world we live in. Everybody gets a trophy right. Nobody can do anything wrong anymore. Oh that's okay it's okay you struck out three times. You can get up night. You can go back and play next time as long as you try. I stuck out three times. My that's what would the f. is wrong with you. Man got grounded in the batting cage for like an hour. I think all this all these these straining footage is just him hitting the pads right. What else what else does he done. he's not done anything else. He's hitting the pads and he's and he's smashing his his his his right in when i was doing. I'm not saying anything else hit hard. I mean we know he could hit hard and watch on the pads watching them on the pads and everything like that. He hits hard. no question. can this translate into the second fight though without out and the other thing. Here's the other thing. Is that like all right. So what happens okay. So say he changes so he's germain see once he gets hit. Does he go germain taylor. Does he go back to what he knows. Well first of all he's dance. It's his stances so wide to yeah you have your stance wide like that you. It takes you that much more time to reset transitioning back to the defense. 'cause you're wide like that so you gotta you gotta take more time to pull yourself and get your back back into that defensive construct because you fetal y you're your balance right you're throwing a punch and you're over extended because you feed a why you gotta you gotta learn to keep his feet closer together. His hook work his fit for work. Isn't the greater i mean. He's lucky he's a genetically gifted person he's just normally an athletic guy he's got he's got a great amount of fast twitch muscle fibers. He's gifted with that. You get by. You can get by with this with this rock raw athletic ability and just physical attributes right but doesn't that mean he can learn more too because he's not because he's stubborn bro he. He's a stubborn guy. He wants to do things but is that you believe in. He still the same now. Obviously we've had our fallout but i'm looking at redemption. I'm thinking when you lose it. Changes something about you now. It could be two things you could go into depression you know and lose yourself or it can motivate you. This doesn't seem like a motivated wilder to you. I'll tell you the problem. It's not a motive. it's somebody he's searching for confidence. Nece think about it. He's going he's going into these on these channels which is a controlled environment. He's going there because he knows these guys are gonna gas him up. He doesn't wanna be ever told he's doing something wrong. Pseudo you tell him he's doing something wrong. You're you're you're wrong. Not him paul. Polymath technology did was say. Hey i scored the fight for fury. He attacked paulie paulie. Didn't call him a name poverty and say oh. He looked like shit he. He didn't talk to him in a disparaging way. All he did was say you lost the fight and that triggered him. All fighters are sensitive. And we've been doing this a long time. You know what he's sensitive but this guy's eagle is a little bit more fragile than most to me. Here's my opinion. I mean this is all my opinion so for me. He likes to be in a controlled environment. Where where everybody is. Just telling him what he wants to hear. That word hating gets thrown around so much. You know what that word hating really means. It means you're telling me something. I don't wanna hear right. You're not giving me unconditional. Praise i need. Unconditional praise so if someone someone does something wrong and no one's gonna tell them doing something wrong. How do they correct their mistakes. So he's got people around him if he's telling himself and everybody around him is telling him the only reason why you lost that second flight is because the guy cheated. You don't have to do. You don't have to have to correct anything. You didn't lose because of what you did you lose. You lost me. Because the guy cheated. And i don't even think he believes that i think this is i think this was. He's become a media. Creation media social media creation. Youtube created him. This is a character. He's playing and youtube. Created it and you know all the power tomb. It's made him more popular. Believe it or not because now he's got a lot of people that are just going to watch the same news now so he's got that that side and now he's got the minions on here. So social media's powerful. And i know i remember when eddie used to say oh no one knows we is blah blah blah. I give them out of credit in the world. Because he made himself big via social media he was doing all the fights. Doing all the interviews talking to everybody going on everyone's podcast and you can laugh if you want. But he's using l. l. Db's us is using him. So pardon me thinks just like he's just playing a wwe character right now. I don't even think he believes half of what he's saying. I'm always thinking this. This is the guy. I know the real the day while there is that guy that turned pro at twenty did it for his daughter. He's the guy that was driving that coca cola truck working at fast food restaurants and did it for his daughter. You know what i'm saying. He had no money but he's stood by his family and he took care of all all his kids did what he had to do. That's the guy i think is the real deontay wilder. I don't think what we're seeing right now..

You don't set out to write a book about the seeming most seemingly simple boring subject in the world. But it wasn't until i i really met some people who had focused on their breathing. Who had discovered something behind. Just the unconscious. Act that you and i do twenty five thousand times a day and they were able to use their breath to do things that are consistent considered in some circles to be scientifically impossible and yet. They're doing them all the time. I'm talking about free. Divers talking about people use breathing the heat up their body talking about people who use breathing to heal their body. All of this sounds like total quackery until you go out there. Look at the science and talk to these people which is exactly what i did for a number of years and before you got into doing the research for the book. What was your knowledge on breath. Like was all this foreign to you in when you started to dig in. Maybe do some preliminary research. Did you think this was all hokey pokey. Error hounded unfold for you. But i live in san francisco so i'm used to some pretty weird stuff out here. I had had some experience with breath. Work not a lot of it. I knew some people who did it quite claim to have some really nice benefits from it but the subjective stories weren't very interesting to me. I was interested to see what the science said what the day said so..

"How do we get it out there. So that every child learns this on every adults perhaps with asthma is taught that they actually do have a degree of control over their breathing so that they can change the circumstances. Well i think these studies have been done for in the nineteen sixties the papworth hospital in england. They had shown that slower breathing had an incredible beneficial effect for people with asthma. But but again these and there were a few studies and same thing with tako. There are few dozen studies on this butts doctors from from what i've heard from the doctors in my family. They just don't have taught when when they're seeing twenty patients in an hour they can't sit them down and say you have asthma. I'm going to show you some slow breathing techniques You know over the next hour and a half so. I think it's a systemic problem. I think doctors really wanna help at least the ones that i've talked to but they just aren't able to. So there are other ways that people can get information through this podcast. And and i think that that podcasting has his really opened up so many doors for people to get real information. There's a lotta garbage out there too but you know. Look at who. The host is look at where the references are at the end of the podcasts. And and you can really find ways of getting information that i won't say has been buried but but has been ignored for so long. You know. I can teach this the patients in five minutes. I can sit with a patient in. I've minutes explain the basics and do the four seven eight breath with them. And i get all of the summers. The consumer program to learn how to do this do with patient doesn't take incredible and one thing. I want to mention when when. I said they don't have the capacity to teach someone. They just don't have the time to do this. Some of these people like with asthma. Who take takes many different sessions over many weeks and these people learn something that feels good and then they forget about it so that that's what i was talking about leaving awareness. I hope i didn't get now. I think almost makes me think that we probably need to have specific group of people who are breathing coaches the way. We have health coaches for other areas. Absolutely i think it's a longtime common. You know they call them. Yoga teachers parts of the world. But you mentioned one of your relatives is an emergency doc. I think that's one of the most effective places and the reality is is people often spend a lot of time waiting in an emergency room so that we need to have them watch the youtube. That's been washed. Think by four million people of dr while teaching for seven eight or to go to your website where you point people to Five or six other breathing exercises that range in difficulty. Some numbers super simple and some of them for example. The wim hof method are much more complex The simple ones you advise people practice.

Nestor he tweeted it once before he wrote this book breath which is really great book. We have on the podcast. When read this quote. And i'm gonna tied into why it's so central to this conversation the first subjects. We're going to get into so this is from albert zafy gory a pri- butcher that a little bit nobel prize winner. 1937 was individual who was responsible for discovering vitamin c as a mechanism inside the body. He says more than sixty years of research on living systems has convinced me that our body is much more nearly perfect than the endless list of ailments suggest its shortcomings are due less to its inborn imperfections then to our abuse it and what i love about. That quote is that. And i posted on instagram this morning. So much of what we think of our body is messing up. Our body is failing us. Our bodies not showing up. How he wanted it to be is much of the by just trying to survive the crazy environment. We've put it in and nothing better describes as inside of your new book. It's smarter than how you introduce the world of fat to us and i'd love to start there so fat loss. Losing fat getting rid of belly fat. It's something that people always think of especially at the time to this. Podcast is coming out. Twenty twenty one. Everybody's like it's a new year. Let me get started. Twenty twenty was a tough one. Takes down the rabbit hole of what we do not understand and get about that. This is so good. And i love that quote so much you know. We're we're in a state where you our system is really focused on malfunction of the human body and not on the grace and the perfection in the beauty of the human body in all the potential you know. An an that's shifting. There's a shift taking place for sure and part of that overall assessment. Because right now we've seen it just run rampant here in the united states. We have about two hundred million citizens who are overweight or obese cry now things populations what three hundred ten. Something they'd it makes no like we can't rationally understand the magnitude of that and right now just shared a study yesterday. That within the next ten years half of the us population will be clinically obese. And we've we've gotten into where we're we're in a battle with fat. We're at war with fad. And i think that the war is a little bit misdirected. And that's wars that something on drugs on everything in that war inherently creates backlash. There's consequences to all of our actions. And i think that there's really just a lack of of well rounded understanding about what fat is because. Here's the the rub. your body. Fat is actually one of the most miraculous important things to your survival into your evolution as a human and so i wanted to start with that premise and kind of dive into fat in. Just open that conversation up because it's evolutionary adaptation that humans have that we've developed over time to be very good at storing fat. Our body fat is there for our survival and it's really really good at doing that. And during times of course we'd experience to our evolution. Where food is scarce. We want that fat to be there to provide a source where we can live to fight another day to see you know scavenger hunt or whatever it is to keep us going and now today however we've gotten we're in a war with this thing that is there for our survival in understanding how miraculous it really isn't so to start at the heart of it. Fat is an first and foremost. And as that's i think a big thing that even people who are in the world of wellness sometimes don't understand it. S just like the way that you would think about the heart. The lungs the brain fat and itself is in oregon. And and when you say it's an organ what are the characteristics of an oregon. That fat has so. This is okay. Psychologically we see fat as like this scattered random droplets of unhappiness at different points of our body right but there there are networks are communities of fat that i talked about in the book and so that i community is storage fats and this is what people are usually trying to target or we're talking about burning fat or getting rid of fat. It's these storage fats. And this goes under the umbrella of these white adipose tissue storage fats and again they're all interconnected and being that it's an organ it creates and produces its own hormones. It has its own receptor sites. It has its own management in cellular communication
There's not enough internet for remote learning to go around
"This fall, we've been talking every Monday about education and technology during this pandemic including how access to high speed Internet and devices is just not cutting it across the country and there's new data on this in our latest marketplace Edison Research poll thirty percent of parents or guardians with kids.

A Conversation With Rep. Ayanna Pressley
"Representative Presley. First of all, we love you. So you know it's going to be a hard hitting interview. With. We love you. Let's let's get into it. Okay. So president trump has clearly included playing up unrest in cities in part of his reelection strategy. He's even gone as far as to imply Democrats are to blame for escalating violence at protests, how Progressives and Democrats push for police reform in a world where an attempt at pursuing justice is spun as a rush to anarchy by right wing media and used as an excuse to become violent by law enforcement officials. Say It's thrilled to be here with all of you. Thank you. I'm big admirers in the ends of the two of you and glad to be with you today. You know what can I say about Donald? Trump. These already the dog whistles anymore there are just blaring horns you know wrapped up in incendiary soundbites and cruel policy in calcium administration. So it's very predictable. This is an old play in this sort of in movement building work you know we're used to it. How do we advance policy? The way always advanced policy as a nation nestor movements you. Know a lot of people when they reflect back on those grainy images, those black and white images of protests and demonstrations. In the nineteen sixties, they will define the progress came out of that solely as the voting rights act in the civil rights at but honestly that movement was the blueprint for every progressive piece of legislation thereafter. So this is how legislation is moved its through movement building and social transformation. That is why now things like inviting qualified immunity which bill that I introduced representative Justin Amash are now part of public discourse that is from organizing mobilizing. Conversations around reimagining our budgets to actually value black lives that has everything to do with the power of movement building, and so we have to continue to do that. We're in this moment of national reckoning on racial injustice is a culture shift occurring people. Now, a very unapologetically affirm that black lives matter but now that has to translate into power shift that is reflected in who we elect to office the laws that we right in the budgets that right those are the only. Receipts that matter. So if you believe that black lives, matter than black representation matters than black data matters, then black home ownership matters black entrepreneurialism matters in. So that's how I seek to legislate is in a very precise way and I'll in here by saying the disproportion hate heard her that has been foisted onto black Americans for generations was not naturally occurring. It was legislated was precise in codified lawmaking until the path forward must be one where we are also precise reverend. Barber. Poor. People's campaign someone that I look too often and just someone admire tremendously. Grateful for his moral clarity and conviction says for moment of reckoning the demands, a third reconstruction, and so that's what we need to be squarely focused. Dohrn is what does that third construction looked like and how do we enlist everyone from organizers to lawmakers as community builders in that reconstruction of a better word equitable world IANNA and I'm calling you Iona because I've known you since the ninety s and that's just how it's going to be. When you when you were telling me what's what? Let's not forget? This week. Joe Biden gave a speech and he released an ad where he made the point to clarify that contrary to what the trump camp is saying about him. He doesn't actually like property destruction that has occurred were some protests have occurred? By doing this Biden, allowing trump to control the conversation. Let me just say this there is an effort to infiltrate into undermine the impact of the black lives matter movement, and the fact that these motivation efforts have continued, which is constitutional. Right to assemble to peacefully protest descent is the ultimate patriotism. James Baldwin said I extensively paraphrase like I criticized this country America because I, love it just that much. She can and must be better. I think we have to be careful to make sure that our movements are not co-opted the people that I see in community who are the four of these movements bay, our community builders, not destroyers and the people that are doing that are infiltrators who won the black lives matter movement to be aligned to be mischaracterize. The people doing the work of justice seeking our peacekeepers you know and I, also think it's important that we not completely rewrite history and sanitize what these movements have looked like in the past. No. So people will bring up Dr King and they'll bring up John Lewis. Will John Lewis was who practice nonviolent peaceful protests almost died on that bridge in many times thereafter in fact, many advocates have said we don't know how John Lewis made it out alive because they always focused on.
Language Modeling and Protein Generation at Salesforce with Richard Socher
"Hey everyone I am on the line with Richard. Social Richard is the chief scientist and MVP at salesforce Richard. Welcome to the PODCAST. Aloha great to be here to chat. Houston you said. Aloha and I was surprised that you're actually in the bay area. I always see these wonderful photos of you all over the place and I only get to ever see you in person at nerves nowadays and The blacken ai events and stuff like that so great to get a chance to connect with you mid year. How is everything? Life is pretty pretty. Good I'm very grateful of our research can continue working on some research during distresses now would that that is specific to Kobe. Nineteen and But Ryan Large sometimes joked at the PhD. Prepared me for several years. I staying at home eating pasta every day. Working on a computer all day and So so I'm I'm in pretty good spirits trying to have a little bit a positive impact and still go about my work and make sure my team is doing well throughout this crisis. And it's it's a tough time But I'm I'm very grateful for line of research we can work remotely. Who quite well awesome awesome. Glad to hear that it is Don't usually you know do this. But is April tenth that were recording. This what is it week. Four for you for lockdown shelter in place thereabouts right. It's it's crazy to time weirdly. It's slow and fast at the same time days morph into each other The Home Office is just the the home and the office and everything so the ad time definitely does not seem linear going through. This is very strange but before we jump into some of the main topics that we wanNA cover in particular language models and some of the recent work you've been doing applying that to the bio space. You share with us a little bit about your background and how you came to work in a chirp boy. It almost starts in high school when I really liked math and languages and when you think about Those two fields one you would hope is true even if you go light years in some other direction and language is district constantly morphing system. Where every you know teenager could just say Yo lo and boom you have a new word and now the the signs of nestor deal with that and so they marry when you try to use computers use math to try to understand language so I studied linguistics computer science Back in two thousand and early. Two thousands and dad's at the time seem kind of like an orchids kind of cute a niche topic to my parents. I thought man if we can get computers to understand language that would be just incredible all the things they could do. You know especially if you're lazy. He wants to agree. Repetitive tasks to be done by a computer would be quite amazing. And so that kind of more Into a couple of other interests in trying to use eventually initially just the typical machine learning essentially sort of machine machine learning by itself and I More broadly applied to computer vision problems. But I really do think in languages the most interesting manifestation of human intelligence There's some quite incredible visual systems and apparatus in the animal kingdom like the Mantis shrimp all kinds of price focal vision. And so on and each I and all of that animals have quite sophisticated visual systems but language connected thought and culture and society. Information are in so got excited about language. Then two thousand ten I saw a handful of people. Apply NEURAL NETWORK TECHNIQUES And extend them to a computer vision and at the time I had also just become a little bit disillusioned myself around how much time naturally crossing folks spend on feature engineering. So I thought couldn't we use some of these ideas from computer vision and neural networks for natural language processing? It was a not easy in the beginning early days had a lot of rejected papers reviewers just ignoring reasonably good experimental results saying why you submitting neural networks stuff to this conference. This is not the nineties anymore. Stuff doesn't work and so on but eventually more and more people have joined a small core initially was read just Joshua Banjo and Jefferson's labs and rings lap At Stanford and and it expanded more and more and and now it's kind of the default way for doing things to US network of course Not Dave developed more and more novel architectures to and it's it's just been super exciting so now I I work Not just on the research side anymore but also on a lot of applied problems you know in the end. I often think about trying to impact and in the end when you do research you hope that people will pick up the research extent Extended next apply it to some real world problems but if you have the opportunity to both the research and applied to real problems to kind of reduce the variance of the impact that you have and so. I work on a lot of problems. Chat bots and service sales and marketing applications trying to for instance automatic reply to emails or two phone conversations or having chat conversations is a really great one also doing a lot of computer vision trying to identify different objects in supermarket shelves. Doing Complex. Ocr for forms and a lot of interesting things recommendation engines Voice Machine Translation. Now the the group is pretty large and so we get to work on a lot of different things. You know it's a it's a research organization but as part of salesforce which we in no as kind of a new still. I still think of itself as a CRM company Owner than their terms here has kind of expanded and now includes everything that you might do with the customer right so we're just ecommerce platform because customers buy stuff online. I worked obviously the largest Sailed Service Marketing Organization but we also have helped companies integrate all the different data. Now Tableau we help people understand our customer data and do a lot of analytics behind it and then we look at you know where are the customers and we help governments senior citizens as their customers and help them especially now also in this crisis of build software really quickly bill chat bots so they can answer questions? You know the knee and if you go to. Da Department of motor vehicles. You have the question chat bots said. Give the answers. They are also You know our customer there of the DMV. We work with healthcare providers where the patients are customer. So the edition of what a customer is is getting broader and broader. We're in all
March Democratic debate held without an audience
"The two top Democrat candidates going head to head in another debate this was hosted by CNN and Univision Joe Biden leads senator Bernie Sanders and total delegate so far with primary scheduled for Tuesday in Arizona Florida Illinois and Ohio now the states represent a total of five hundred seventy seven delegates the candidates went at each other more or less on several issues but they also preach the need for unity among Democrats he is the most dangerous president among Nestor this country what I said on day one but obviously I hope to win the nomination but if I don't win the nomination all right and I think every other democratic candidate is prepared to come together to do everything humanly possible to defeat Donald Trump well because of the CD nineteen Sunday's debate was held without a live studio audience it was in Washington and said of being I forgot we're was supposed to be in Phoenix Phoenix regionally and they moved it to
Digital Economy: Digital skills
"Remote working made possible by the Internet is extended the talent pool that companies could draw on. Though as we're here for some that has meant bringing work closer to home at the same time geography still seems to play a role in the market market for digital skills hubs like Silicon Valley and its imitators serve as beacons for digital talent can companies who seek to employ them must contend with eye watering mm salaries and rent on this month episode. We discuss the dynamics of digital skills exploring how digitization itself is shaping their supply and demand. My guests Are John Director of education at UK Innovation Foundation Nester and Chris Johnson CEO and Co founder of talent acquisition platform on cute. I started our conversation by asking. Joycy what nesters research tells us about the digital skills that will be in high demand in future so nestor has done quite a lot of research into what are the skills that are going to be in high demand in the future. We've looked at forty one million job bad birds and looked at. What are the skills that will see see an increase in demand? And what are the skills that are going to see a decrease in demand and we noticed that some of the skills that are the basic digital skills those skills which associated with toss that or jobs that are going to see a decrease in demand are required a requiring lot of digital skills else but there are some jobs like teaching chef which will require which will see an increase in demand are actually seeing a law persons age of digital skills that are required so based on our analysis the top of the most promising digital skills are things like animation multimedia the production design and engineering research and quantitative analysis with some of the more advanced digital skills raw than the basic digital skills that can be automated away. The research shows that just having these technical skills additional skills not enough you need creativity. Collaborative problem solving communication skills alongside the digital skills as well. Chris does this match your experience. At on cubed what do you find are the digital skills skills that are most in demand among US employers yes it does and we tend to focus in particular on some of the skill sets that joycy mentioned and software development and engineering and data science. And then the related sort of sweet of skill sets required to build web driven businesses. That's where most of our work is. Based and two professions or skill sets I think are growing notably fast one is is of course software developers developers which gets a lot of press and attention and even civic attention as cities. Try to figure out how to make more of these jobs. available and accessible and and that is projected elected to grow twenty one percent in the next ten years and these are US Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers but the growth is pretty similar for data science but on the data science side. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is projecting a nineteen percent increase over the next ten years. So pretty fascinating in that if you go back to the ninety s when there was this massive sort of trend towards outsourcing. The thinking was at least in the US economy and certainly elsewhere. Swear that jobs were not going to be available in the US and now twenty one thousand nine going on twenty twenty you have the government itself projecting these really really massive increases in the number of jobs available here in the US so we can't discuss skills without talking about education and training and we've seen seen in the last decade some innovations in training. I'm thinking of online trading resources sort of massively online nine courses open courses and also scoop skills boot camps which often tend to be focused on digital skills. Joycy in your your experience experience. What impact have these new method tab? Which of the most effective and not only on the availability for of skills for employers but also about the accessibility of careers in digital technology? I think it's a really interesting space because there are lots of innovations happening in that space. So you have these mooks. Massive Open online courses like Cor Sarah Dusty index but there are also hold range of other online courses Lincoln Learning And others they have an interesting mortal some are like A university which is online and people can access it anywhere and then there are others. That are much more like a trade school. But the biggest challenge with these online courses is the law retention rate So hundreds thousands of people sign up but not many complete or not many go on to get the certification. So Nesta's doing some research to really looking at what motivates adults to learn. And how can you give them the right information advice and guidance so that can continue on this lifelong learning journey johnny. We're also launching a career tech challenge which is specifically looking at addressing this issue of not enough people using the online tools to upscale and rescheduled is to say that these things haven't had the impact that we're expecting for five years ago I would say it has had an immense impact because lot of people who couldn't have access to high quality education can now access it and without mooks that wouldn't be possible but in terms of really helping people transition position two jobs it still hasn't delivered on that promise and there are some new models you mentioned boot camps that have come up which give three months of training and but they cost ten thousand thousand dollars so it's super expensive and there's Avai small subset of society that can actually access these boot camps. There are some other innovations that are happening which are absolutely free and the only criteria forgetting his motivation and your potential to work hard and one example of that is equal forty two based in in France and now they have Opened in US and the model has been replicated in many other countries like Russia and many countries in Africa. Gotcha Chris so in your work. You connect candidates with employers. Have you seen these new approaches to skill development having an impact so far on for example the supply supply of skilled candidates on. I think all of these models have fallen way short versus the headline promise and certainly the the idea that a lot of investors astor's dumped hundreds of millions or billions of dollars into I think the numbers of people that have either found new career. You learned a new skill set outright through self directed online training is actually quite small and there certainly are success stories but I think we as a as a people might not be ready to learn that way I think on the other hand the bootcamp model which joys Aegis touched on in an laid out some of the different models and structures that we're seeing in the market now I think that has been effective and to her point. The original the original model is quite expensive and therefore prohibited for people. If it's ten thousand ten thousand dollars or or more per person but the model itself has been quite effective and I think what people are seeing out of it is a chance a two in a concentrated time really learn a new skill set that that can get a job and it's it's not perfect but we see plenty of bootcamp grads. Ads End up with very successful career as even at at Mike. Company on cubed our lead software developer came from a boot camp. She was a teacher and worked in education before
