Kingpins Daily: Eliot Ness
"Times but in his nineteen fifty. Seven book the untouchables. Ness reveals a more vulnerable side of himself. One that suggests that even the most by the book offices questioned the very rules they enforce. He wrote doubts race through my mind as I consider the feasibility of enforcing which the majority of honest citizens didn't seem to want the law of at Ness was referring to was the eighteenth amendment to the United States Constitution. I ratified in January. Nineteen nineteen it banned the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors and incited the prohibition era for those unfamiliar. It's important to note that Americans didn't just wake up with a hangover and empty liquor cabinets. They had the opportunity to prepare for prohibition and prepare they did many acted like Frat boys before a big snowstorm. They hoarded alcohol. And why shouldn't they? There was absolutely no promise that the storm of prohibition was going to pass any time soon. In fact they were politicians. Like Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas essentially telling people the pigs would fly before it ended. Needless to say there were stockpiles of liquor everywhere and by everywhere we mean in the cellars of those who could afford it. How were they able to purchase these now? Illicit goods simple the eighteenth amendment was poorly written as we said it banned quote the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors. It failed to mention whether alcohol was illegal to consume and it didn't define what in the good hell intoxicating meant so without parameters to enforce any law. Authorities like Eliot Ness. We're left twiddling their thumbs. Enter the VOL- Stead Act in nineteen twenty it defined intoxicating liquors any substance containing point five percent alcohol or more for perspective. That's one tenth. The average can of beer of course higher proof substances could still be manufactured and sold for practical applications like medicine cleaning and religious sacraments e there were loopholes and whether loopholes there are people abusing said loopholes for profit. Which is exactly what happened. The reason prohibition caused mind speakeasy as Pianos flappers and booze is because alcohol didn't go anywhere. In fact during prohibition consumption increased by an estimated sixty to seventy percent it just moved from the free market to the black market from being a stable of the American home to being. Contraband as it did. The line between crime and leisure became incredibly blurred which led to some very lucrative and suddenly criminal enterprises. Elliott's ness the man in charge of enforcing prohibition laws in all this mess in Chicago. No less the home of notorious mob. Boston bootlegger Al Capone Aka scarface. Ness worked for the Prohibition Bureau from Nineteen Twenty Six all the way to the end of prohibition in Nineteen Thirty Three. In that time he was surrounded. By other prohibition who were accepting bribes in exchange for turning a blind eye to these illegal operations. Everyone was getting rich and they use this new ethical gray scale to justify their actions. It was after all just alcohol. Who is it hurting? Really like said the majority of honest citizens didn't even want the law ness wasn't the delusion that any person who chose to imbibe where criminals but at the same time there were men like Al Capone men who were undoubtedly criminals and from between those two extremes sprung doubt and the fact. That ness had doubts is important. It's a shame that history frequently ignores that chapter of his story too often. He's relegated to a trope. The unflinching leader of the untouchables. A team of agents that upheld the law at all costs but the truth is much more complicated than that. What misunderstood was the good and bad can exist on both sides of the law. Yes Eliot Ness would one day help take down. Al Capone a man responsible for the deaths of many innocent lives. But prohibition had more victims than those men victims whose stories are often forgotten the poor the ones that we're most held accountable by the laws of prohibition simply because

The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.
The Danger of Averages
"I want to talk about the danger of averages and to do that I'm GonNa read from a book called the average how we succeed in a world that values sameness by todd. Rose and I will read just A little bit of an expert here are excerpt. Because it's the story is fascinating here. We go in the late nineteen forties the United States. Air Force had a serious problem. It's powder could not keep control of their plans. Although this was the dawn of jet powered aviation and the plans were faster and more complicated to fly. The problems were so frequent and involve so many different aircraft that the air force had an alarming life or death mystery on its hand. It was difficult to be flying. One retired airmen told me you never knew if you're going to end up in the dirt at its worst point. Seventeen pilots crashed in a single day. The government designations for these non-combat mishaps were incidents and accidents. And they ranged from unintended dives and bungled landings to aircraft obliterating fatalities at first the military brass pin the blame on the men in the cockpits citing pilot error as the most common reason in crash reports this judgment certainly seemed reasonable since the plans themselves seldom malfunctioned engineers confirmed this time and again testing the mechanics and electronics of the planes and finding no defects pilots to were baffled. The only thing they knew for sure was at their piloting skills. Were not the cause of the problem if it wasn't human or mechanical error. What was it? After multiple inquiries and with no answers officials turned their attention to the design of the cockpit. Itself BACK IN. Nineteen Twenty Six. When the army was designing its first ever cockpit. Engineers had measured the physical dimensions of hundreds of male pilots. The possibility of female pilots was never a serious consideration and used this data to standardize the dimensions of the cockpit for the next three decades the size and shape of the seat the distance to the pedals and stick the height of the windshield. Even the shape of the flight helmets were all built to conform to the average dimensions of a nineteen twenty six pilot. Now military engineers began to wonder if the pilots had gotten bigger since nineteen twenty six to obtain an updated assessment of pilot dimensions. The Air Force authorized the largest study of pilots that had ever been undertaken in nineteen fifty researchers at right Air Force Base in Ohio measured more than four thousand pilots on one hundred forty dimensions of size including thumb length crotch height and the distance from pilots I to his ear and then calculated the average for each of these dimensions. Everyone believe this improved calculation of the average pilot would lead to a better fitting cockpit and reduce the number of crashes or almost everyone one newly hired twenty-three-year-old scientists had doubts. Lieutenant Gilbert as Daniels was not the kind of person you would normally associate with testosterone drenched culture of aerial combat. He was slender glasses. He lacked flowers and landscaping and in high school was President of the Botanical Garden Club when he joined the Aero Medical Laboratory at Right Air Force Base straight out of College. He had never been in a plane before but it didn't matter as a junior researcher. His job was to measure pilots limbs with a tape measure. It was not the first time gang had measured the human body the aero medical laboratory hard daniels because he had majored in physical anthropology. A field that specialized in the anatomy of humans as an undergraduate at Harvard during the first half of the twentieth century. This field focused heavily on trying to classify the personalities of groups of people according to their average body shapes a practice known as typing for example. Many physical anthropologists believed a short and heavy body was indicative of Mary and fun. Loving personality while receding hairlines and fleshy lips reflected a quote criminal type. Daniels was not interested in typing however instead his undergraduate thesis consisted of a rather plotting comparison of the shape of two hundred fifty male. Harvard students hands the students. Daniels examined were from very similar. Ethnic and socio cultural backgrounds namely widen wealthy but unexpectedly. Their hands were not similar at all even more surprising when Daniels averaged all his data the average hand did not resemble any individuals measurements. There was no such thing as an average hand size quote when I left Harvard. It was clear to me that if you wanted to design something for an individual human being the average was completely useless. Daniels told me so in the Air Force. Put them to work measuring pilots. Daniels harbored a private conviction about averages that rejected almost a century of military design philosophy as he sat in the medical laboratory measuring hands. Legs Way. Sin Foreheads. He kept asking himself. The same question is head. How many pilots really were average? He decided to find out using the size. Data gathered from four thousand sixty three pilots. Daniels calculated the average of the ten physical dimensions believed to be most relevant for design including height chest circumference and sleeve length. These form the dimensions of the average pilot which daniels generously defined as someone who's measurements were within the middle thirty percent of the range of values for each dimension so for example even though the precise average high from the data was five foot nine he defined the height of the quote average pilot as ranging from five seven to five eleven next compared each individual pilot one by one to the average pilot before he crunched numbers that consensus among his fellow. Air Force researchers was at the vast majority of pilots would be within the average range on most dimensions after all. These pilots had already been pre-selected because they appeared to be average-sized. If you were say 6-foot-7 you've never been recruited in the first place. The scientists also expected that a sizable number of pilots would be within the average range on all ten dimensions but even Daniels was stunned when he tabulated the actual number zero out of four thousand sixty three pilots not a single airman fit within the average range on all ten dimensions. One pilot might have a longer than average arm length but shorter average leg length. Another pilot might have a big chest but small hips even more Donna. She dangles discovered that if you picked out just three of the ten dimensions of say Necks Conference Thi- circumference and risks or conference less than three and a half percent of pilots would be average-sized all three dimensions. Daniels findings were clear. And incontrovertible there was no such thing as an average pilot. If you've designed the cockpit to the average pilot you've actually designed it to fit no-one gangs revelation was the kind of big idea that could have ended one era of basic assumptions about individuality and launched a new one. But even the biggest of ideas require the correct interpretation. We like to believe that facts speak for themselves but they most surely do. Not after I'll Dang was not the first person to discover. There was no such thing as an average person. Okay I've stopped reading. That is from again. I mean give the book title. One more time from. Todd rose the end of average and I just wanted to call that I was thinking about averages and thinking about our propensity our desire to want to know what the average is for all kinds of spending line items and we want to know. What's the average spend on hobbies in general? What's the average spend on groceries? What's the average mortgage? What's the average? Pm I property taxes any number of things and I think the danger in that is that you start to think that you need to fit some kind of mythical average in your finances some mythical budget some perfect budget this average. And there's a whole other story in the book about Norma this it's about women's measurements in about how women weren't fitting this ideal and you know this opposed average. It's it's also very fascinating but the idea that you're supposed to hit some average. I think you should just throw it out. I think you should resist the tendency that we all have to kind of say. Well what's what's average? Where DO I fit? Don't worry about being average worry about asking yourself on a regular basis. What you want your money to do for you. And don't look around resist the urge to look around and figure out what kind of average you're supposed to be fitting into. I think people that can buck that that can fight against. It are some of the people that have breakthroughs whether it's in their personal finances or inventions or any number of other things so resist the urge to look for an average in conform. And make your budget your own. Make your categories your own own it. It's yours. Don't look to anyone else to let them say how they think you should do this or that. My guess is if we were to compare and try and find the average buzzer. My guess is we would have a similar result that there is no single person that fits this average of all of our different calculations so with that in mind just You know you're in the cockpit right. The Cock the budget is the cockpit. The cockpits where you where you drive the jet exactly where you need to go and what you need to do and in thinking about it that way this cockpit. This budget is tailored specifically to you. The success of this story to kind of tie it all up is that the military did embrace it and they resisted a lot of pushback from the engineering and manufacturing this. This is impossible. We can't make it but they were saying no fit the system to the individual. Don't try and fit the individual to the system and in doing that. They ushered in a whole me. They should in an era of improved flying. Safety Dominance in the air. It was unbelievable so resist the urge to try and find the average. You just tailor that cockpit that budget you and enjoy your

Initially and then in the fifties became a movie theater. Okay somewhere in this afternoon. Perhaps Early days absolutely. Does Rick do a little song and dance interested only in way so how? How long was it lying obsolete before somebody had the brilliant idea of turning it into something really useful? Sure it was like most downtowns When the interstates were built they bypass a lot of the downtown's so you know it. It fell on some hard times. Starting the mid seventies and on and off operated as the a movie theater For the ensuing twenty to twenty five years starting the mid nineties or was probably closed more than it was open and then permanently. Close Two thousand eleven. They believe you may get a little echo on this one because it's quite cavernous right Ken. Z. Were basically sitting. Where if this had a balcony we'd be in the balcony looking back towards where the screen would have been about what we're looking at is an astounding array of large for Menta's and I guess you've got mash tons distilling side of it.

She was even friends with the poet. W B Gates who became one of the most important figures in twentieth century literature. I am going to begin with all. The political and artistic energy in their network trickled down to Eva and constance. Eva was first to become involved in the women's suffrage and labor movements while constance was initially resistant. She soon joined eva in the fight for equality but constant is packed to politics. Wasn't linear at the age of twenty. Four constant studied painting at an art school in London after that she enrolled at a prestigious school in Paris there she met her husband with whom she had one child in. Nineteen oh three.

V visits to the country during the demonstration. She threw stones pictures of the King and Queen and was arrested. It was constant is first of several arrests but the possibility of jail time didn't stop her political activism a few years later constance participated in the Easter rising.

Change Constant said to her captors. I do wish your lot had the decency to shoot me in prison. Contents was held in solitary confinement. She nearly starved to death and was forced to do strenuous labor. She was released a year later but was imprisoned again shortly thereafter in one thousand nine hundred eighteen while constants was still in prison. She was elected to the House of Commons as the representative for Dublin Saint Patrick's division a UK parliamentary constituency in Ireland.

Constants refused to swear an oath of allegiance to the king and did not take her seat instead she along with other Irish Republicans organized a new government called the Dale Iron.

University has several one including a missing millionaire several the structures on the so Kappa Southern Oregon University campus were built in one thousand nine hundred eighty four nine thousand nine five in that era. We'll begin our campus tour with the Swedenborg House. The white colonial style structure complete with pillars was built in nineteen four and was the home to Dr Swedenborg although it was built for Charles Chapel and for time the two families shared the residents. The doctor took in patients and it said used the basement does some more Jesse windbreaker. Millionaire philanthropist was one such patient who was eventually transferred to the new Ashland Hospital mysteriously disappeared. But that's sort of the story anyway. Daniel Schorr director of the Campus Paranormal Club States. That there was one spirit. Walk through the Swedenborg House. When he heard some sounds down in the basement several people went to investigate and felt very uncomfortable down there. They came back up locked the door. We continue the tour. He said after time those same individuals came back to unlock the door when they tried a blue arc of electricity shot off the DOORKNOB. This would be a normal. Currents with carpeted floors called static electricity however they want to do it again immediately afterwards and it happened again. The static electricity should have completely discharged the first time one staff member who were in the Plunkett Center. Lisa parcel said that everyone that had worked. There hadn't experienced something doorknobs. Jiggling doors slamming. It is said that the Susan Holmes resident's hall is the second most haunted place on campus during the nineteen forties. When under construction. The little boy drowned in the basement today. Many current residents of the hall. Say that the figure of a small boy can be seen wandering the halls looking for a towel. Perhaps it's also said that in the late nineteen seventies. A young female student hung herself after constantly. Seeing the boy and being driven to the brink of sanity now we moved to Churchill Hall built in Nineteen Twenty Six and we'll still on the campus it contained an amphitheater and a conductor's box. Paranormal activity took place. One night a set was being built. One student asked that someone turn on the overhead lights moments later. The lights came on and everyone realized that no one had broken away to turn them on. Finally we get to Stevenson Union. Billy then the bookstore there. It said that it was a place where bodies were taken from the old hospital images of men women dressed like doctors and nurses have been seen running toward the bookstore from the front of the Stevenson Union Building. Today there are still students at refused to walk the southern Oregon University campus at night. But there it is the most haunted campus in America.
Monet's Gardens at Giverny
"Start with a look at the intimate gardens. That impressionist painter Claude Monet created around the end of the nineteenth century at his house. In Javanese Elizabeth Murray is a gardener in an artist from the Monterey Bay area in California. She volunteered nearly a year of her life to help restore the gardens in nineteen eighty five. She's updated and re released. The beautiful photo filled book. She compiled to convey how. Mornay created his gardens as a work of art in themselves. It's also where you can experience his famous water. Lilies in-person her book is called Monet's passion ideas inspiration and insights from the painters gardens. Elizabeth thanks for being here. My pleasure thank you for inviting me. Anybody who loves ART KNOWS IMPRESSIONISM? And when you say impressionism you think Claude Monet. Set up the garden. What is it with the great painter? Having his own garden to help inspire his art his garden was both a sanctuary for him and his family and a place that became his biggest inspiration and he lived there and she bernie a little village for forty three years and he's heard to create this garden for his own pleasure and delight and then realized it had everything he needed to paint. He didn't have to travel outside of it any longer as he was aging. And all these other political things in wars were happening so here is the garden of great beauty that nourished him inspired him and he organized the colors implants than reflections said that it was something he could be inspired to paint each day so he spent his last forty three years there. He died in nineteen twenty six today nearly one hundred years after his death we can go there and enjoy the gardening wizardry of this great painter because he painted and he planted and it comes together. Now you've visited back in Nineteen eighty-four reading your book. It's just an amazing story. Tell us how you first met Jeff Rene and then why that changed your life. Well I've always been a painter and a gardener and when I went there I literally got a lump in my throat. I had fallen in love. I thought more than anything I want to know. This garden intimately and the best way to know a garden is to work in it so I had a French friend with me and I didn't speak French and she helped me meet one of the gardeners who said Oh you must go and speak to monsieur vendor camp and ask if you can work here and I thought you know what I live in Carmel. California. I have a great house in nine people working for me as a professional gardener. But I'm willing to give that up in order to work for free and it has been something that has enriched my life but wait a minute about thirty years ago you were traveling around and you were visiting gardens all over Europe teen a lot of gardens your professional gardener with your own staff. You went to Germany two hours west of Paris and you were so impacted by that that you went home. Quit your job and moved to France and volunteered for nearly a year. Yes that's right and I didn't speak French. Learn some Don Don. Does she need Let me soon to Clinton. I'm not a gardener. I go to these Great Gardens in Europe and I love them. They just are delights How was a step above? All of those will. It was a step into my heart. That was it. It wasn't that it was grander by any means. But I love Monet asa artist and so this is like a living painting and I felt like many people who visit the spirit of Monet. So when you feel the spirit of someone you love and admire and then you get to see some of the ideas and where he lived. You really feel his presence. And that's really what I fell in love with. And so you have a great painter. Who New Light? His whole his biggest emphasis was painting light and all the shades of color so instead of just organizing a bouquet or organizing a still life. He organized a whole garden. That would have the colors that sang for him with his kind of color sensitivity and rules of collar. Now this is interesting Elizabeth. You're talking about late. And you know the whole rallying cry of the impressionist movement was for the artists to get out of the studio and into the light and they would satisfy easels out in nature and then they will grab the light and and these are dislike. Monet would famously paint the facade of a church at different times of day in for them. It wasn't the same subject. It was completely different subject because the late in the shadow would play on the physical object differently at different times of day. And this is sort of the essence of impressionism. Isn't it it's capturing the light and the reflections in the shadows exactly the impression of that moment gave its name impressionism. His one thing to have it on a building. In which money did they incredible ones of the Cathedral in Rwanda but then you have living texture of plants that are going to change with the light and they have their own vibration as an artist and a gardener? Elizabeth you could sit in Monet's garden and would you appreciate the different times of Day. Would you insulate dimension of it? So as a sightseer we can go in the morning and we can go out for lunch and take a walk and come back in the afternoon and artistically. It's a different garden absolutely and then it might rain. You might have pouring rain. Bring an umbrella and then the rain will break and you'll have gray clouds and everything will be all shiny and sparkly or you might be there for early. Do or you might be there for little frost. The seasons completely changed the cars. Just it's carbonated the whole experience by appreciating this extra dimension. I'm Rick Steves and our guest. Elizabeth Murray is an artist photographer and gardening expert. She helped with the restoration of Claude. Monet's famous gardens at Scheffer name after time and the Second World War had left them in ruins. She's published a book called Monet's passion with photos. Observations and tips on the plants Monet us to convey a vocabulary of color in his gardens.

RCA @100 with Tim Sarnoff
"Whether you're an established name a brand new startup right. Now has a television this listen to the radio. <hes> has played a record. Well thank R._C._A.. For that or C._A.. Is a name that many of us older folks oops remember. They were so dominant the <hes> the company was started by David Sarnoff. I am sitting here with Tim Sarnoff David Sarnoff grandson to talk about the legacy of R._C._A.. which is now a hundred years old? Tim Come a little closer to me and just re just spit out some of the multiple dimensions that came from R._C._A.. Well R._C._A.. Back in nineteen nineteen was really focused on radio and what was important about radio radio in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred and it's hard for people to sort of grasp a world without it but before radio the only way you got news was through either the newspaper which was mostly local newspaper or walking not driving. I'm walking to the nearest town and the average person only walked one day away so the news you got was as close as one day aways walk and frankly when radio came along it brought the world to everyone so significant invention initially was to bring the world to everyone's living and between Nineteen nineteen through nineteen twenty six that was sort of haphazard until N._B._C. was created under our C._A. and it. It was the first network to bring the news from all over the world into your living them R._C._A.. Sold the first radio had the first network that actually spawned the set on the second network which was A._B._C.. That's that's true. It was <hes> the red network in the Blue Network and then a year later was C._B._S.. <hes> so there were three dominant networks there were a number of them that came up and disappeared over fifty year period but those were the three that basically were maintained until cable came along and had the first TV well R._C._A.. During that time in Nineteen twenty-three started developing the T._v. with his work and on the side were a number of other inventor inventors. There was Farnsworth who was inventing a version of of <hes> electronic T._v. and all of the functions of those inventions had to be culminated into a business so the real invention of T._v. wasn't the T._v.. Itself but the business to actually manage the T._v.. The broadcast system that had to be set up there was an antenna that was put up on the Empire State Building that was the structure of creating call letters and times for the <hes> stations to actually not interfere with each other there was the advertising system television was more than just a box television was an industry industry and R._C._A.. Spent about fifty million dollars from nineteen twenty three to nineteen thirty nine to develop the first television business and then there was records and record player well yes of course C._A.. Had acquired through Marconi Tony Victor talking machine and Victor Records and they also owned R._C._A.. Music Label R._C._A.. Also was very much focused in newer high technology so when the tube which was probably one of the greatest inventions. Inventions of the twentieth century was vacuum tube and that allowed all sorts of other inventions to occur until silicon chip came along and the semiconductor in the second half of the twentieth century and it was able I'll bet enabled everybody to miniaturize all of the pieces of the electronics so that you could fit an entire world of electronics inside a small box during the thirties and forties after television was starting to really really become a reality for the rest of the world are then spent a disproportionate amount of its treasure about one hundred million dollars to create color television to add little fidelity in reality to television system and even in the sixties sixty s when television was ubiquitous across pretty much everywhere the notion of trying to slimline the television by creating a liquid crystal display rather than having it in a tube and the notion of trying hi to transfer with fiber rather than just over the air and the notion of setting it up on satellites rather than having it go terrestrial. We're all focused as R._C._A.. From the fifties sixties and early seventies and then G._e.. Bought R._C._A.. In the eighties and today day R._C._A.. Is a memory for many of us even though the brand name is owned by technicolor. You'll talk about that in a minute but what happened what happened R._C._A.. Why did it fall apart well? It didn't fall apart. It was acquired. It was acquired by G._e.. And and what G._E.. Acquired was R._C._A.. And all of the companies owned underneath the banner which included N._B._C. and Hertz rent a car and banquet foods and say records and R._C._A.. Records and <hes>. Patents thousands and thousands of patents for inventions that are C._a.. Had created over the first half of the century and there were <hes> many people who still thought of R._C._A.. From what what it was which was sign of quality and invention and there are many

100 years on, how the League of Nations made the UN what it is today
"This is Daniel Dickinson. The world has seen huge changes. Since the league of nations was born one hundred years ago bought its twin aims of promoting peace and wellbeing live on today in the work of the United Nations. That's the strong belief of Blondine blue catch Lewis fell chief of the institutional memory section at the UN library in Geneva who explained to Daniel Johnson of UN news how the league was also ahead of its time in raising the alarm about climate threats such as pollution. She was speaking at an event to celebrate the first international day of multi-lateralism and diplomacy for peace held at the Palais day Naseem, the original home of the league of nations actually is not one reason. I think there are many reasons we are living in a complex world with many polygon issues, but also many economic and social issues that are more. A more complex and the to involve more and more actors and stick on this. And I think military's is a is an answer to that. How is the world today different to one hundred years ago when the league of nations was founded is it comparable is multi-lateralism. Still in the model, we need to improve people's well-being and fight inequalities. I think the principles are still more or less the same. We've just screened video today showing the activities of the league of nations and a lot of the people in the audience set of we still do the same. Actually, we do the same in terms of principles by the same time. The Joe politics have changed at the time of illegal nations. It was a time of Karenina which no longer exists. So states have different interests and way to behave. But also issues are more more global like climate change. For instance, the league already tackled this issue. You did the league. Nations. Tackled climate change came a change, but actually environments issues like pollution of the there was a convention in nineteen twenty six about solution of the. But of course, nowadays climate change is bigger issue than it was at the time. And this is something we need to talk together. And in your workers, the archivist of the UN legacy here of you like it the Polly denial in Geneva. What's one of the most interesting things that you've found in the course of your word in the course of organizing this event on multi-lateralism? There are so many things I'm here for twenty years. This year is also the university. Congratulations for twenty years, the beauty of being in the library and heading the archives. Every islands something we've found things in the archives everyday. I think what I've learned is that a lot of things that the UN is doing was done already steps were taken by the league. It's amazing. You we were talking about environment and pollution. It was there. We when preparing this event and other events in the sensory activities, we try to match sustainable development goals with activities at the league had an we barely one or two that do not have links with what the league did. And as the historian of the UN archive here in Geneva. What is very different about the UN today compared with the league of nations. It can't just be size. Maybe it's in terms of the civil society participation. Is there anything that really strikes you? So there are many things, of course, which are different. Of course, there's a legacy from the league, but not everything is done same way, and also instantly economic and social dimension has be taken into by the UN from the very beginning by having an economic and social council, which did not exist to the league, which was recognizing importance of these activities in maintaining peace. You don't maintain peace only by doing political activities and disarmament? But also in developing this. Activities. And also, I think the involvement of civil society. It started the time, but it has exploded. It's not commensurate to what they did.

So the government banned the production and sale about gall throughout the country in nineteen twenty two Detroit to get Americans to behave which is how they saw. With the boys bums spending their money departing their county, dirt robbing pottage and jeopardizing their immortal soul. But that didn't mean people stopped drinking altogether because pretty quickly. Some people started making alcohol at home and selling it sort of mom and pop shops for illegal alcohol. Joking about moonshine, exactly. And this made a lot of scientists really nervous because it's very difficult to avoid making poisonous forms of alcohol. If the chemistry is off even a little bit instead of ending up with ethanol the stuff that's in beer and wine. Then you get what's called methyl alcohol, and that's really poisonous. It's also known as methanol, and it's basically ethanol's deadly twin they look and taste pretty similar, but one can kill you. Which means you could drink the wrong kind about call not know it until it's too late and a bit a lot of people didn't realize that lots of people don't know that. And they poison themselves. Wait, are you telling me, this is the big review that those people in New York City and Christmas Eve or whatever poison themselves. Now, we haven't gotten to that part yet. This is just the beginning see pretty quickly and alternative to this poisonous homemade alcohol appeared the underground world of bootleggers, and they knew how to throw a party.

"And light radio death-dealing waves annihilating hundreds at a time. Oh who admits he stumbled on the death Ray by accident told the reason radio expedition here that he plans to ask the governor of some state for the privilege of demonstrating its death-dealing properties. On some condemned. Murder. The day is not far distance had France. Oh, wind death-ray and radio waves will be used by police to stop engines of speeders and bandits. The death Ray is only slightly different from the radio wave, but it is too deadly for radio amateurs to be permitted to experiment with just think what it would have meant to the police of Elizabeth New Jersey when they were pursuing the mall robbers bullets could not stop the fleeing bandits, but radio waves properly applied would have halted them. The same force applied in a slightly different manner can be employed to start fires at a distance and such action necessarily would explode powder. Its use can be carried even further. So as to supersede explosives in times of war, the deadly effects of violets and certain forms x-rays and similar waves are well known. I have the wave that is deadly. But it is too dangerous for radio amateurs to know. So I love already by nineteen twenty six we're seeing some creep of the concept. Right. Like, it starts always with this. High minded like we're going to end war. We'll make war impossible. It's time for world peace. The death. Ray will do it. And the hook. Here is still that it will make war impossible, or at least stop the bombers that are coming to kill civilians by the millions, but MAURICE apparently just can't help himself and almost immediately starts drooling about incinerating, criminals and begging governors to give him a prisoner to APR is an also going on about how the raise mine. It's all mine. No one else can have it. You know, this brings me back to the guillotine episode. You know, where we talked about the how inevitably a new technology comes along. Somebody is going to say, let's execute people with this. Yes. And and here we have the exact same situation granted with technology. That is not actually come to fruition. But already they're thinking we could execute prisoners with this. Well, this is another version of what happened with the electric chair. You know, the electric chair was that conclusion brought to fruition in the wired electric city era. Now, they're essentially trying to do the same thing for the wireless energy air. And thank goodness. It didn't catch on. I the the idea of say essentially microwaving our our prison. Owners is a little unsettling. I don't think that like if you go back and you played the tape of history. Again, I don't think it's impossible that something like that would have happened. I mean, people are always interested in trying new technologies like you're saying to to get retributive Justice against a against people who they believe have done wrong. Like, so many people have this bizarre science fiction, corporal, punishment lust. Yeah. And granted I could also see where someone could have made the argument like the the death Ray. That's the the best way. The most humane way to execute somebody. That's exactly what they would have said. Yeah, it will be quick and painless, you know, far better than those older technologies. Yeah. I guess we can be glad that didn't happen. No, like, Georgia, governor said go for it. As far as I know no governor ever gave him a prisoner to demonstrate on. So a couple of other ones mentioned in fanning that I just couldn't pass up mentioning because they're pretty weird one is in nineteen twenty six and English masseuer and osteopath named Ibbotson said he had invented a Ray that could go through six feet of lead. Okay. Work as an electrical gun shooting seven inch bullets work as a remote control for a boat, turn steel to powder, weld brass and steel together and petrifies silk. What does that mean don't know? No. You can't iron silk. So a really that is my understanding. Yes. That if you iron it you destroy it. Oh, okay. Yeah. Learn something new every day.

"Welcome to the Rick Edelman show. I'm sure you're really excited about the start of the new year. If nothing else we're happy that the last year is over. John with and if you've taken a look at your investment portfolio, you might be singing this song. Well, okay. You might wish you were back where you started because you're probably a little bit behind the S and P five hundred stock index closed down for the year loss of six percent. It's the first loss for the stock market in the United States since two thousand eight yes, it was ten years eleven years. Pretty amazing run. We've had broken. By two thousand eighteen the Dow was down five point six the NASDAQ down three point nine this was like this all over the world. France was down eleven percent. Great Britain down thirteen Germany down eighteen. China down twenty five this was in fact, not just a bad year for the global financial markets. It was also a bad December. In fact, it was so bad. It was the worst December since nineteen thirty one. I don't know why I'm laughing because I'm either going to laugh or cry. Not only were the market's down. They were volatile as well. The S and P five hundred was up or down more than one percent nine times in December alone massive swings in the market now just to put that into perspective. It was upper down one percent nine times in December in all of two thousand seventeen it only did that eight times we did more in December than we did an all of twenty seventeen. Now, let me just put this into a little bit broader context for you since nineteen twenty six there have been three hundred seventy quarterly returns in other words three month intervals, right? Those are the first three months of the year followed by the second three months of the year. And so on there were three hundred seventy of them since nineteen twenty six our last three month. Interval the Q four the fourth quarter of two thousand eighteen was the fourteenth worst with the stock market's down seventeen. Percent in the fourth quarter for a yearly end up loss of six percent. And is it bothering you is this negative attitude. This negative result really upsetting you. Well. According to a survey that was just done at the end of the year by the National Endowment for financial education. They found that sixty percent of those surveyed say, yes, the volatility bothers them the other forty percent say it doesn't because we understand the volatility is part of the financial markets and their right? Those forty percent, unfortunately, the majority say, yeah, I'm really bothered. Well, here's why I don't want you to be bothered. Yes. The stock market's did poorly, and we were down six percent in two thousand eighteen but you know, what if you take a look at the worst performing quarters, and we were down seventeen percent in the last three months. This is why people are upset. It's not just that the s&p was down six percent for the year. But rather it was down seventeen percent in just the last ninety days raising the question, right? What's going to happen in the next ninety days? What's going to happen next week? Well, let's take a look at the historical data. If we take a look at the performance of the stock markets since nineteen twenty six on a quarterly basis. If you look at the worst performing quarters. They were down an average at twenty three percent. We were down seventeen this last one. So not as bad as the worst of them, but still pretty darn bad. What happened a year later? What happened three years later? What happened five years later, according to the historic data when we have gone through a quarterly performance as bad as the one. We just went through. On average since nineteen twenty six following really bad quarters and these ranged anywhere from seventeen percent losses to thirty eight percent losses. A year later on average. The stock market was up twenty six percent. Three years later. The stock market was up on average thirty eight percent. And five years later, the stock market on average was up ninety one percent. Now past performance doesn't guarantee future results any assertion of the contrary is a federal offense. I can't tell you even if the sun will rise tomorrow morning, but I can tell you this historically speaking, we know the stock market only does one of two things it goes up, and it goes down. And what history tells us is that whenever the stock market has an extended period of going down. It has a subsequent period of going up even higher and for longer, and it is for that reason that we aren't upset about what's happened nearly as much as we're excited about what might be coming next. And so it's on that basis that I do indeed wish you. Very happy new year because I am much looking forward to an improved twenty nineteen. So as we enter twenty nineteen I know that you have one primary activity you're engaging in right now because we all do it as Americans every happy new year. And you know, what I'm talking about? It's New Year's resolutions and financial planning personal finance are always. The highest ranked New Year's resolutions. Made a close second is health people want to lose weight getting better shape. Eat better. But it's always money. That's number one. And every survey confirms that again, people want to save more money when get out of debt, we want to improve our investments prepare better for the future and so on and so I wanna make it easier for you to do that. We are financial planners is you know, that's what we do for a living element, Financial Engines, and we typically charge eight hundred dollars when when we charge our clients for a financial plan and we've been doing this for decades. Now, we have tens of thousands of clients all around the country one of the largest financial planning firms in the nation. And I want to help you get off on the right foot. I mean, it's really hard to believe that the financial crisis was ten years ago. And that we just went through a really lousy three months and a pretty poor overall two thousand eighteen. In the face of all of this. Millions of people are reaching retirement. You've got more money in your accounts now than you have probably ever in your lifetime. Partly thanks to the wonderful performance of the stock market over the past decade. And yet, you're still reaching retirement. A little bit nervous. Aren't you ten thousand Americans are turning sixty five every day getting ready to retire? And if that's your where you're at you need to take some action to start transitioning to life as a retiree, and you you've had a strategy, and I'm willing to bet a pretty good one over the last.
