Branson, Bezos, Musk: The Billionaire Space Race
"Richard branson's being outed longer than the others. Seventeen years or so since richard branson. I announced his ambitions. Two thousand four. When virgin galactic was started. I think back then the intention walls within three or four years. They be doing what they've only just done now of of taking passengers into space but for him dates back and he. He talks about this a lot. Doesn't it back to nineteen sixty nine and watching the moon landing a teenager. We choose to go to the moon and and do the other thing not because they are easy being taken outside by his dad and the pointing up at the moon and realizing there were two men up there east folks at one of those men buzz aldrin in the nineties and and talked about the idea of using plane rather than a traditional rocket as so. The idea is been fermenting for a long time lot of setbacks on the way of course. I think a lot of us wonder whether this would ever happen. He's proved he can do it. And i think that for him is why this is so emotionally significant but also practically significant in a business sense as well. Let's go through the others then we go elon. Musk of tesla. Fame with space. X.'s dragon capsule and he's the best known for his space ambitions around the world. Think just because of his global profile that he has and has had a lot of success with the commercial side of this deals with nasa of taking things up into orbital space which of course is much further than branson or some of the tourism operations are going and has talked in perhaps much greater ambition. About what could be done. He's talked about colonizing mars. Easy said he wants to go to mars. he's also said people might die. Going to mars but ambitions seemed to be much bigger and grander than just space tourism. And someone who through his life has solve the big problems as he's seen them around the world and this is one he sees that needs to be solved by the private sector. Then making up the triumvirate. Jeff bezos of amazon fame. What of his ambitions. what's his rocket. Program is interesting isn't because he there's far less publicity with with. Jeff bezos a blue origin. The company that will take him into space has been around for twenty years so longer than branson's virgin galactic but his plans all rooted much further back than that he he talks of colonizing space of building these holds where trillions of people can live something. It's thought he took from a professor. He had at princeton physicist. Who came up with his idea in the seventies so he has these grand ambitions that pass. He doesn't talk about as much as richard branson alone. Musk but which are very rooted in in history and clearly having left amazon this is now his focus on taking humans where they where they've not come
A Look at Farallon Industries
"Couple of months ago. I told you about a guy who dropped off some vintage scuba quip at the shop. One of the regulators was an old poseidon cyclone and that spurred me to segment on poseidon here on the show. I also mentioned that the cyclone was complete with a set of farallon gauges and that there were a pair of farah line fins that were unfortunately torn so they got me thinking about doing some additional research on fairlon and doing a segment here on the show. I gotta tell you. Researching on industries was a bit of a challenge. It was difficult for me to piece the information together. So some of this may be a little bit out of sequence. Let's start at the beginning. Or what i think is the beginning from my research. I believe it was somewhere around. Nineteen sixty nine. That guy named ralph osterhaudt was working on a diver propulsion vehicle or dp that he called the mark one. It seems that this was pretty successful. Product and the us navy decided to purchase two dp marquand from ralph and it appears that that's when he started foulon industries. Farallon is the name of a small group of islands about twenty six miles due west of san francisco. I wasn't familiar with the farallon islands but found out some interesting stuff about them from what i read. They were originally called the islands of the dead by native americans and then given the name farallon meaning cliffs by the spanish. I'm not exactly sure. Why ralph named is company farallon industries. Farallon was based in belmont california which is between san francisco in palo alto on the san francisco bay side. The address was listed as one three three three old country road. But when i google map data address it came up with one three three three county road now. I like to take a look at the street view at these locations to see what it looks like today and today one three three three county road in belmont california looks like a self storage facility. One of the ways that i researched founded on industries was to look back at old trademark registrations impacts when registering a trademark or patent near sometimes a description of the business on one of those registrations the businesses described as as a california corporation producing goods and services for skin and scuba divers equipment namely self-propelled vehicles for transporting scuba divers. Interestingly i saw a fair aligned dp up for auction just yesterday. I think one of their most famous patents was also in early one. It looks like it was around seventy one and that was the shock dart famous because of its uses a prop in nineteen seventy five blockbuster draws the shark dart is described in the patent as a compressed gas injector weapon including parts. Therefore you may also see these come up for auction from time to time and complete rig gets pretty pretty expensive now. There were a whole lot of patent issued to caroline industries in the nineteen seventies. It looks like it looks like there was another row involved with foulon who is also inventor and that was ralph sham champion in an old article that i read who's identified as the president of farah line industries and was listed on a number of different patents. So let's take a look at some of these products in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. It looks like they submitted a patent for a decompression indicating instrument and it said it was an analog computer then in one thousand nine hundred seventy five. They produced a pressure gauge and started to design fins over time. They introduced the farah thin the fahrenheit which was a rechargeable hand-held light and then in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight farallon industries was issued a patent for a pilot regulator that said it incorporated a novel valve assembly in the second stage in the form of a unique main diaphragm valve and a pilot valve assembly. Now i did try to trace. What actually happened to farrell on. There's some indication that it was acquired by a company called tacna. But if you look on the oceanic website they say that. Bob hollis took a big step forward with oceanic when he acquired foulon industries around nineteen seventy six giving oceanic full line of scuba equipment with an innovative line of instrumentation products. I'm not exactly sure when oceanic stop branding their products with the farallon logo. I did find a price list and catalog. from nineteen seventy eight. They're still showed a lot of the farallon. Products including their low profile pragmatic mask their patented molded mouthpiece swim snorkel. The farah light farah fins and all their instrumentation they were also still producing four versions of their diver propulsion vehicle. The mark to the mark sri mark for mark five. Interestingly in that cadillac. I did see that. Both the farallon. An oceanic logos were shown together. And oh by the way you could still get the shark dot and he came in two flavors the magnum supreme in the magnum super. Well i knew. When i started this research on farallon line industries that would be a little more challenging than some of the other companies that i've researched farah line. Industries wasn't around very long but it looks like they did some really interesting

The things like this a eventually president. Nixon told pakistani president. Y'all calm and yao coundon tote chairman mao. That's the americans was serious. So that was the beginning of this contact.

War was still a huge controversy in the us. Adding china around ninety sixty nine. There was a border war between china and the soviet union and around around autumn nineteen.

How John Joseph Joubert Became "The Woodford Slasher"
"People deal with stress in different ways. Some exercise sweating out the negativity and improving their mood with endorphins. Others relax by sitting in a hot bath letting all their anxieties wash away. Of course these are just a few examples of healthy coping mechanisms. Most of us are lucky enough to have learned tactics from our parents friends therapists. We understand that stress is inevitable and that the only thing under our control is our reaction to it john. Joseph joubert didn't have this luxury he had no idea how to receive bad news grapple with uncertainty or endure trauma and because he didn't have a strong support system. John had to figure things out for himself. Of course this took him down a dark and twisted road. He turned his thoughts inward wallowing in his grief. And angst daydream swirled through his mind and he cocooned himself in fantasy until he had to turn these fantasies into reality but john's life wasn't always so glum born in july of nineteen sixty three. He grew up in a relatively happy home. His parents worked hard to keep the family. Unit close reportedly making a cozy home for john and his sister in lawrence massachusetts. Unfortunately marital difficulties got the best of his parents at around nineteen sixty nine. They separated young. John had a hard time processing split for years. He'd witnessed his parents blow ups and learn to fear them. When things got really bad he'd run to his room or hide in the corner until his parents calmed down. Though a separation meant that these fights would finally come to an end. A part of him likely felt helpless. There was nothing he could do to keep his parents together. Potentially making him feel worse his mother who will call mary one custody and drag john and his sister away from their father. All of this change seems to have made. John feel utterly powerless so when a new person entered his life he began imagining ways to take control.
The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month
"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

All the people on this earth are truly one one in their pride in what you have done and one in our prayers that you will return safely to earth. The call caused some controversy. People objected to using the moment to put the emphasis on a political leader. Democrats were upset. Because nixon had only been president a few months and most of the apollo program had been developed under the kennedy and johnson administrations nonetheless. The controversy was rather minor and soon forgotten. The speech however wasn't the only speech that was prepared in the lead up to apollo eleven the nixon administration was thinking about what they say in their phone call to the astronauts nixon speechwriter.

There wasn't a one-size-fits-all time sharing system out there and bell wanted one for internal use and maybe for some more ambitious projects to but multidex was perhaps over ambitious timelines would slip further and further behind and by nineteen. Sixty-nine bell pulled out of the partnership entirely. But that left bell with a bit of a problem. They still didn't have the complicated time sharing system they were after and on a smaller scale. Programmers like ken thompson and dennis ritchie. Just plain mike. Working on multidex. It was a nice environment to work in. The entire system was written in a high level. Language shirt had some problems but it was a fun playground for.

You have to the americas for that. It's less i mean. There are people who will hone areas of the americas where it could have been like cuba just because there was people who found the pyramids deep underwater or supposedly pyramids deep underwater in cuba.

"Okay so you just got a couple of questions. We're going to get into that okay. Yeah totally i'm nora. Mcnerney in this is terrible. Thanks for asking. And that was gina and when we get into it. We're going to be continuing the conversation that we've been having about care with gina story is a story about a lot of complicated emotions about the long tail effects of being thrust into a caregiver role when you're still a person who needs a lot of care a child but this complicated story starts in a really simple place when genus parents met and fell in love They were summer fling. Was like maybe nineteen sixty nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy vietnam war was going on. I think there was like a lot of looking for a better life. Like you know like wanting something good and they dated over that summer and then they were married by like the day after christmas that same year. So my sense is that they were kind of idealists like they were looking for some sort of happily ever after and for awhile. Genus parents found it. My mom was a homemaker and my dad was kind of a rising star in the computer science world. he was an academic. He was teaching at georgia tech in atlanta. Which is where. I grew up and so early. Memories are that you know my mom cooked and was crafty and volunteered with the pta. My mom really loved to so she loved to bake. She's a beautiful woman and my dad was very intellectual. Like i remember him reading like not totally age appropriate books to read allison wonderland to me at an age when i didn't fully understand what's going on there so much in that book didn't understand but i loved the fact that he would read that to me and he would sit down and explain to me. How telephones work and he liked teaching me about prime numbers and stuff like that at a very young age i think he just really enjoyed sharing that aspect of himself with me. He liked kind of dissecting things and thinking about things and asking questions. And that's something that. I've carried with me into adulthood. He kind of taught me how to dig deep and think about stuff that you might not otherwise. Think about gina was the second of three children. Her older brother is named allan just like a sweet sweet kid like he loved playing with matchbox cars and he would line them up. We would watch movies a lot together like he loved watching lassie and old yeller and stuff like that. If it involves a kid in a dog he could watch a movie. Five times in a row of my mom lead up every single time. He said he would laugh at every part like it was the first time you ever heard it or ever saw it and same with music. You know at some point in our childhood somebody gave them like one of those yellow sony walkman and a bunch of tapes and he would walk around the house with like headphones on and plane his tapes and singing and his very loud very slurred speech. That was like the happiest. Alan loved country music bing crosby. He loved christmas music all year round. It was just gina in allen until their little brother andrew was born. Andrew came along and i felt like almost like he was my baby from the beginning and like i think i recognized from a young age that he was like my ally and my playmates. He was you know a playmate that i interacted with. He was very imaginative. And we do the things that kids do where you like lineup. All your stuffed animals and teach them school or we would do these toy. Parades down the hallway and like throughout the whole house. Where readers just like lineup. Every single toy we own and then just like march like it was a production. The genus relationships with andrew and with allen were different because allen andrew with different. I was aware from a very very young age that i do things at allen. Couldn't i was three years younger than him. He and i kind of learned how to walk around the same time he could talk but his speech was really slurred. And so i knew from a very young age that like a lot of people didn't understand what he was saying. But i did like i kind of interpreted for him a lot especially in public so i think there was an awareness on that level lake. He's older than me. But i think i always felt older than him like. I knew that he had a lot of medical stuff. That was very mysterious. He had some seizures and would have to be rushed to the hospital so i i was very aware that like he needed a lot and there was something wrong.
"nineteen sixty nine" Discussed on Politics: Meet Me in the Middle
"I have a vision that i think is shared by a lot of other people that this can be a country that takes care of its own that gives people opportunity that doesn't keep people down for race or gender that doesn't abuse other people for their beliefs. I think we can have a country here if we pay attention and we built this show called. Meet me in the middle. Because we want people to pay attention to both sides of every issue and come out from the middle and realize that some very complicated issues are best solved by listening to each other by understanding what the concerns are and by solving them rather than coming up with rhetoric to divert your attention from a problem at hand and in the case of what i would visualize for a goal in america is none of it matters if you have millions of people who can't eat and don't have a roof over their head because then whatever success you can claim to me is irrelevant. Well i would endorse your vision for america. And i think a lot of what we've been talking about today is how to get us back on track to fulfill that fish. Because we've america's had good times and bad times and we've gotten off track the thing that made america great and the thing that made america the leader and truly the light of the world was that it was both the land of opportunity the land where more people and more people were really enfranchised and made part of the game and the land of. Everything's possible so. I'd like your concept bill as we wrap this up. Jane i just wanna say wanting it's been a while since this country has gotten in line in one parade after one cause and actually worked together right. I would have to say world war two. We probably got behind that by the way after coming in kicking and screaming by the way but finally when we got in everybody was in. We were bound together by one.

"And never once did he call for the multitudes that were there at the ellipse on january sixth to storm the capital but the democrats pretty successful in using that emotional argument. And does it surprise you as the rioters looking for any semblance of a believable defense saying well. He made me do it. He told me to do that a week. Defensive ever i heard one whatever happened to accountability and taking responsibility for their own actions. And by the way those who breached the capital and cause such mayhem and destruction yes. They should be punished to the full extent of the law. Now you had a trump attorney criticizing democrats just yesterday for showing the videos of the rioters citing the former president as a reason for assaulting capital. David shown told reporters. I think it's offensive quite frankly. It's antithesis of the healing process to continue to show the tragedy that happened there that donald trump has condemned tonight. Think it tears. At the american people quite frankly which arguably indeed be the political end game that could be the entire point. Democratic managers went on to argue that a key reason to convict. Mr trump was to stop the same kind of violence from ever happening again. You had diana get saying we're not here to punish donald trump really. We are here to prevent the seeds of hatred that he planted from bearing any fruit represented lieu out of california. Said if we let him get away with it which begs the question get away with what exactly with all due deference and respect representative lou. He did not call for an insurrection but if we let them get away with it said representative blue and then it comes to your state capitol or if it comes back here again what are we going to say adding i'm not afraid of-of donald trump running again in four years. I'm afraid he's going to run again and lose because then he can do this again. I'll let you figure that one out you had maryland democrat representative jamie raskin. This is the Lead impeachment manager countering arguments by trump attorneys that the former president's words in the lead up to the january sixth assault on the capital. Where well within. The norms of political speech that is protected by the first amendment as they indeed wrote in a recent brief. Actually there is precedent to support. That claim mr raskin then cited a nineteen sixty nine landmark supreme court case in which the high court found that the government couldn't prohibit free speech and free press quotes except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action. He went on to compare mr trump to a fire chief who incites a mob to go set the theater on fire and not only refuses to put out the fire but encourages the mob to keep going as the blaze spreads. Good try.

"Or at least my watch is were skied that way. So the sparks brothers movie is for meals sublime keep thinking about it. I keep enjoying it. My head can't wait to watch it again. one evangelize it to everyone. It was just such a terrific joyful documentary about a band that a lot of people don't know but also in a way about a fandom in a passion and i think we can all relate to that on some level because we're all a passionate fan of something and oftentimes something other people don't necessarily get or know about so that unfulfilled fancy of of introducing the rest of the world to that thing. We love that other. People don't know about is great. I just loved that it was an extension of the band itself. Get some so much that the things that he did in the film to tell her story and to convey their use it were really in tune. With what the band would have done themselves. And that was really cool and i think whenever a documentary can do that you can reflect the essence of the thing. It's documenting like he just takes the whole thing to another level. The next one. I really enjoyed was somersault down. Of course a lot of people are gonna see with good reason. I was really impressed with the story of it. Unites nineteen sixty nine festival of art.

Which is a documentary but an animated documentary which which made it really unusual at fresh and down told a really powerful story that you've just wanted to see how it would work out see how it ended and it raised a lot of interesting questions about the reliability of narrator and things like that Very good very good. Yeah and flu is actually my absolute favorite from the festival. It's a whole partially because it laid with the idea of documentary fiction as a whole was you were saying and you got the sense that they had actually filmed it as documentary at one time and then decided to do flashbacks in an animated sequence and then just adulated all of the pieces they had filmed as documentary too. Because you you see all these intimate moments between the man who is a refugee and his lover to be husband and then you're always wondering how much of this story he's told to everyone around him versus what he's telling to the camera. It's very interesting narrative of course the narrative that's so essential in terms of understanding the refugee experience as a whole. What the spark back. Mary does that you in that. We're there is no footage of an event happening. Oftentimes there's another way of telling it and sometimes it is animated and i. That's kind of a neat compelling choices to be making documentaries now and i hope people keep doing it because it is so effective and creative like that..
Somalias political problem
"The logic of defined political terms that they provide the body politic with the sort of inoculation against what usually results when one person holds power to loan going back to the voters every so often to ask whether or not they won't. The person in charge to crack on is a sensible precautionary measure. See also the term limit. Which in some jurisdictions imposes a ceiling on the talk any single citizen may occupy the big desk there is however and as somalia. Is this week discovering an inbuilt floor with the setup at the moment the term elapses either the incumbent needs to have a renewed mandate in their pocket or a successor has to be ready to take the oath of office. The time of somali president mohamed abdullah muhammad better known as fa- modu was up on monday however because no elections have been held. No president has been chosen. Several opposition factions and two of somalia's five states have declared that they will no longer recognized for marjo as president before we look at what happens next spoiler alert very possibly nothing. Good a brisk. Recap of the backstory is probably in order the new president from i. I'm i'm very happy today. Because the new president's da for mall. Joe was elected in two thousand and seventeen. The idea had been that this was going to be a proper one person. One vote direct election but it was decided probably correctly that the polling stations and qs. Office somalia's various incorrigible militant groups rather too many targets. Instead from our joe was elected by somalia's parliament which is also not directly elected but instead chosen via a framework which has power among somalia's clans and states. This is a necessarily complex apparatus. Many of the clans dislike each other and a few of the states Iffy on whether they even think they're part of somalia says much about what somalia's mp's were up against when they chose the president that this vote was held not in the parliament building in mogadishu but in a heavily guarded and fortified hangar at aden a international airport and only after it had been closed to air traffic and mogadishu's roads closed to all traffic. It had been hoped for a while that by the end of joe's term somalia would by now being a position to conduct a more orthodox one person one vote direct election. What would have been somalia's first such since nineteen sixty nine however this was eventually reckoned once again an unacceptable security risk specifically that to hold such a vote would have been asking somalis to bet too large a steak on the goodwill of the islamic terror group al shabaab covid nineteen ni- certainly being vastly under recorded in somalia provided further discouragement. So this election was to have been another indirect one though with a broader pool of delegates but for modules opponents believed or purported to believe that the president had been stacking the regional and national electoral board's with his political allies. Which is why we are where we are or perhaps more accurately a delayed election israeli a good thing but it doesn't have to be the end of the world since the beginning of the covid nineteen pandemic at least forty national votes of various sort have been delayed and around thirty five regional or local elections in places where the democratic architecture is solid. This will bailey count. As a wobble especially at subnational national levels it will not cause the citizens of new south wales to question the legitimacy of the democracy if they have to put up with their local councillors another year. Ditto those of london as regards the mayor but when the stakes are as high as national government and the foundations much less stable. Such a jolt can have more dangerous consequences. a delayed. Parliamentary election has already triggered a war in ethiopia in an ominous. And surely not coincidental gesture. Shortly after somalia's politicians failed to reach agreement at the latest talks in. Do some marib an shebab. Roadside bomb struck a military convoy near the town killing thirteen people. And then there's at the security council condemned terrorist attacks by al-shabaab they reaffirmed their support for national sovereignty territorial integrity and political independence of somalia from jo now plans to meet with state leaders next week in an attempt to locate a compromise. It has to be hoped that they find one. Nowhere on earth is a power vacuum good thing and nowhere on earth is a power vacuum a worst thing as recent history has repeatedly demonstrated funding somalia.

How Stonewall Unified the LGBTQ+ Community With Activist Mark Segal
"In the mythology ising stonewall we talk about how it lasted three days as if it lasts three days just on its own and something i had heard before until your book was about how it lasted three days because you were writing chalk on the street come to stone tomorrow night. How intentionally kept it going. I mean you writing chalk on the street meet stonewall night like that spread information that that's like tweeting. Today we had no cell phones. We had no internet most couldn't afford a phone quite honestly. During some fifty sort of amazing. I would go out to various speaking engagements. Some of them were museums. Some of them were in schools. Everyone had it seems a different day. Oh went on for three days. Oh it went on for four days. Oh it went on for six days. How many days did go on is a good question for me. You went on three hundred sixty five days because right from the beginning we started organizing that includes from the street running on street tomorrow night to the third or fourth or fifth night. I don't remember which where we had leaflets on the street saying you know we're not going to allow the The police to oppress us anymore. This is our neighborhood. That's what is so that was in itself illegal. When we gathered at the steps of stone wall that was illegal homosexuals could not congregate to that was when we said. We're gonna fight the police. That was illegal. Everything we did in that first year was basically illegal and we wouldn't be stopped. We were going to be out loud proud and don't even try to stop us. I don't think i knew that. Part of history that it was illegal to congregate if you're gay. Yup that's why stonewall was so popular because if you were walking up and down christopher street all night long which is what i did with my friends. The chances argue would be stopped by the police sometime. The police that they saw drag queen will try to find out if they had three pieces of mail clothing on because that was the law. Others would be harassed. It wasn't a safe as you might think it would be so when you went into the stonewall it was a safe place it was a place you to be yourself. You could hold hand. You put your arm around somebody and more importantly to eighteen year old. You can dance sure. Now you mentioned. Marty robinson he with one of the co founders of the liberation front which was a group that really helped to forge. The foundation of our community was the gay liberation front. Was that group something that came out of stonewall or was it already in existence beforehand. There were many organizations before stonewall. The leading one in new york was mattachine and all my first or second week i tried to go in about a sheen. They said i was too young as i was leaving. That's where i met. Marty robinson who is coming out and he said you know these guys. They don't get it they don't understand what's going on in nineteen sixty nine. We just can't be doing once a year march. We need to do some more. He created the action group which i was a member off. There were many little groups or pockets of groups like that around new york somehow. After stonewall we all unite for the first time action roof aries lesbians. We got together. That's what created gay liberation front. He was the first united movement in our country from the grass.

Growing Up In Style: "Patterns of the Past" by Susan Choi
"I'm here to introduce a series of original essays titled growing up in style writers on discovering fashion in america in this one the novelist susan choi author of the national book award winning novel trust. Exercises writes about her love of fabric patterns as a child in south bend indiana here susan reading her essay patterns of the past. I hope you enjoy. Historians of fashion seem to agree that by the time i was born in nineteen sixty nine. The son was already setting on the golden age of sewing. But there were few signs of this decline where i was growing up in south. Bend indiana my mother like so many mothers owned a sewing machine and knew how to use it how this come to be. I asked her recently. She gave a verbal shots over the phone from houston where she lives. Now if you read the directions and follow the pattern it would come out all right. She recalled she didn't even remember perhaps because they were as ordinary to her as grocery shopping. Our trips to the fabric store. Oh the fabric store. Even now decades later when google those words and look at the photos my heart thumps with desire to be clear. These are not photos. A fabric for sale online but photos of the interiors of actual physical places where one goes to touch bolts of fabric cards of rick rack buttons buttoned to a stiff cardboard backing or tumbling loose in a jar dispenser displays of threat arranged by color the spools curved surfaces gleaming like candy and every kind of beautiful ribbon in every color and texture and pattern the fabric store. Unlike the grocery store made me hungry the for. What exactly wasn't clear at the time. It was something much larger and much less defined than the outfits. My mother would make me from the items. We chose the fabrics and notions and trim but the outfits i loved with my whole heart and remember as clearly as if they still hung in my closet. The ruffled pinafore made from a white on white print of tiny flowers trimmed with red rick rack and finished with the application juicy. Strawberries on the bib. The shirtdress of multicolored cotton printed with patterns resemble embroidery the truly glamorous halter dress with a triple tiered skirt of pastel. Blue pastel pink. Pastel yellow says my mother now in her eighties on the other end of the phone. I lovingly describe her creations. She is impressed. I remember so while she has zero memory of sowing the any of these things though she does remember making herself address with extremely big sleeves. They were in style that year. She says she wore it a few times and decided the sleeves looked so stupid that she tore them off and wore. The dress sleeveless the fact that unlike me my mother is white exceedingly pale small boned blue eyed and with the cheekbones of film star both oppressed me throughout my childhood. And lay somehow outside of thought even to articulate it now feels uncomfortable but the facts were and remain that my pale blue eyed mother never matched my black haired brown eyed dark skinned self always far darker as a child than i ever get now because i was outside all summer. In an era before sunscreen in elementary school in indiana. I was cast as the lone indian in the thanksgiving play more. Generally i was constantly looked at especially or at least so it seemed to me when standing next to my mother. We didn't match. I harbored a fantasy fearful half escapist that i would turn out who've been adopted from some faraway land. Even my father who really was from a faraway land only explained my appearance without removing. My anomalous miss. He was to novelists himself ends that hunger. I felt at the fabric store. Larger than any one outfit could satisfy for the choosing of the fabric and the notions and the trim was always secondary to the choice of the pattern and the choice of the pattern was never i understand. Now about the pattern it south. It was about the girls the winsome the willowy and the overwhelmingly with token exceptions white girls who modeled the pinafores and shirt dresses and halters the tiered skirts and even the full body. Pajama like halloween costumes. On the outside of the rectangle envelopes housing the patterns. Remember those remember how they were often filed in boxes so that your fingers walked through them as they would later walk through. Lp's at the record store. When i think of patterns my mind says butterick. And i bet that the majority of the close my mother made me were from patterns put out not by simplicity or mccall's but by the butterick company which also produced vogue patterns having licensed the name from conde nast bruising those patterns of my past online where especially at sea they abound as if the golden age of sewing never ended. I have to wonder if i always chose butterick patterns on the strength of the package illustrations alone. The simplicity girls are oddly wooden and slightly mis proportioned the mccalls girls look like cartoons but the butterick girls still quicken my heart. I recognize my secret childhood. Self that lanky limb d- flush cheeked auburn-haired spirited white girl. I was deluded enough to imagine. I might be twin sister to anne of green gables. No less than two miniature area clock recognizing that hopeless longing to be entirely unlike myself delicately white as affirmed by one hundred percent of my world is a part of moving past it and perhaps even a part of reclaiming those buttons and bows those bullets at every possible fabric delicious all on their own after concluding online photos that it might well be the store of my childhood. I called stitch in time in south bend but it had only opened in nineteen ninety. Three there was a fabric store back then an ireland road by the old scottsdale mall. The woman who answered stitch in times phone told me. When i explained where i lived fashion fabrics that turned out had opened in nineteen seventy one just in time for my first toddler outfits and closed just under two decades later having withstood. Even the machine made onslaught of gloria vanderbilt. I know about that story. Because i worked there. The stitch in time woman went on. But before i could exclaim that maybe she'd helped me choose buttons or ribbons. She politely ended the call. An actual customer having arrived looking.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release
