How Will Climate And Health Policy Look Under Biden?
"An episode from the npr politics podcast about how climate and health policy might look under the incoming biden administration. Enjoy hey there is the npr politics. Podcast i should ask oh. I covered the white house from scott. Detroit biden transition. I'm jennifer ludden. I added gene environment. So jennifer ludden. You're here joining us. Thanks so much for talking with us. Hello hello i so joe. Biden has over and over emphasized climate as a central part of his administration. We're going to get into what that really means. But first let's start with what the last four years have looked like for climate policy because it really hasn't existed right jennifer. Well it's been very active sort of like in the reverse. I mean you know after going from president. Obama trump was like whiplash. And we're kind of head you know reverse whiplash again all those actions. That obama took in eight years. We have seen dozens and dozens of rollbacks of them. You know there was the paris climate accord of course and then Rules to bring down carbon emissions in power plants to make cars more fuel efficient To restrict development of wetlands and so forth. A lot of this has been challenged. You know we've had a lot of court cases and the trump administration has lost some of those but some are ongoing and you know another Maybe lasting climate legacy of president trump will be all the conservative court appointees he had including three in the supreme court which is where some of these Contested rules may end up but to be frank. Climate action has never really measured up to what scientists say. We've needed right. It's it's we as a country have fallen shore true. I know so much You know obama had so many fights about getting his measures passed and they're really inadequate. But i will say so much has changed in the past four years. It's pretty remarkable. I'm we have been sort of hanging out in limbo reverse but the rest of the world and a lot of us cities and states have just been on fast forward You have seen countries. City states Businesses industry utility companies established. These incredibly ambition as ambitious goals of not only reducing carbon emissions but trying to go for zero carbon in the next few decades. This has been driven by a major shift in public opinion. Huge ramp up. In extreme weather disasters more americans are feeling this viscerally in their lives wa the hurricanes the fires the heat. And so you know. It's pretty clear that just bringing back what obama had managed to pass is not going to be nearly enough. And that's the way that that biden talked about this throughout the campaign and it's the way that the various advisers and Cabinet picks and cabinet level special positions is created are viewing this like the overwhelming view of the people who will be setting policy is the world is on the clock. The us has wasted years on this effort and they need to radically overhaul the entire power sector over a decade and a half and then keep going and totally transformed the country's economy by twenty fifty and that's basically to almost the bare minimum of what is needed according to experts to stave off the worst of a warming planet. When you look at you know how you're going to deal with this issue. Obviously you have the power sector which is a huge amount of the carbon comes from that you also have the transportation. The way we fuel our cars and trucks that comes from fossil fuels. What is biden looking to do. Is he going to phase out all coal. We're going to go to auburn noble energy. We all know that you know. The sun doesn't shine all the time. When doesn't blow all the time. How does that work and in president trump would always say you know. I can watch cable because the wind's not blowing honey. Some of these fast forward are more straightforward than others right like just to take vehicles and and emissions that's an area where it is pretty straightforward and You have. I wouldn't even call it. Reluctant agreement right from a lot. Lot of big auto manufacturers is that fair to say jennifer like it's kind of like acceptance of like yes yes in conjunction with states like california and the federal government. Which has the right to do this getting back. On pace to having stricter emissions higher mileage standards so cars are using less gasoline and then hopefully sooner rather than later aren't using gasoline

No acknowledgement, no thanks for Rosalind Franklin who made the discovery of DNA structure possible
"It's the centenary of rosen. franklin's birth. This year she who made watson crick's revelation of the structure of dna possible. Her photograph of dna made all the difference and was featured in western. Play called photograph. fifty one with nicole. Kidman who else is franklin. But it was after dna. According to patricia farrer of clare college cambridge that her work on viruses and irony made work like this year's fast production of covid vaccine possible all that worth two nobel prices so far. Thank you think just portrait by malcolm. I'm watson i'm creek. Let us show. You are trick. We have found the seed of life sprang from. We believe we're stew of molecular goo with a period of thirty four angstrom. So just think this means to our respective genes that sakes did not be disgusting or you girls. Try that trick of watson and crick and achieved. Double helix lusting cheeky was recited by james watson and francis creek at a symposium in june nine hundred fifty three to celebrate the discovery of the double helix in nineteen sixty two. They received the nobel prize for this work. Along with morris wilkins. They've been basking in the glory of his saints but there was another crucial contribution to solving the puzzle of deny that of the dock lady of dna roslyn franklin. He's francis creek acknowledging homework on bbc radio in nineteen ninety nine. It was fairly fast. But you know we were lucky. You must remember. It was based off the x ray. Were done here in london. Started off by. Murray's wilkins and carried on by rosen in franklin and we wouldn't have got to the stage of least having a molecular model if it hadn't been for their work will the story is very bleak. She was naps. Brilliant x ray photographer and this was how the physical reality of the double helix model was first. Seen because wont watson and crick quarrel remodelers that that is they were abstract scientists. They were thera- titians so they were making the model as it were in their heads out of those bubbles and sticks that we all know so well which made the double helix model. What roslyn franklin's incredible achievement walls that she was a technically quite brilliant with this new and difficult apparatus of x ray photography and she showed this first image. Hilary rose from city university london. She's been a sociologist. of science. Since the mid seventy s and the image is referring to is the x ray picture taken by rosalind franklin niners photograph number fifty one. It displays a doc. Black spotty cross shape which confirmed for watson and creek. They hypothesise that. The structure of dna is in fact. A double helix. Hilary rose is passionate about rosine. Franklin's contribution and believed her story is one of appropriation and rasiah without her consent. These pictures were taken by the third noble prize winner. Wilkins and they were shown to watson and crick in cambridge and this is appropriation. I mean there are harder woods for it. A ratio of course was dramatic in the nobel prize acceptance speeches. Roslyn is by then dead. So little people forget those no question hoping for price. 'cause they not give them to the dead they given to the living so the three man. None of them acknowledged her work public. What she gets is a footnote in morris wilkin so that's the asia and you would have thought on the occasion art a such a thing as the nobel prize. The woman is dead that there would have been case for little generosity. Not a hint of a three man. Just carry on as if she hadn't existed as she hadn't done the pioneering extra work. It wasn't a pool in shabby story. And there's plenty in the history of science strong views from sociologist. Hilary rose no matter which way you look at it though. The mystery of this dark lady is intriguing author. Brinda medics was so fascinated by rosalind franklin. That she's recently completed a comprehensive biography. He she is with robin williams. Rosen franklin's family very well off for intellectual whether or not they're very wealthy anglo jewish bankers they also had a publishing firm for the sons in the family who actually were inclined to banking rutledge and keegan. Paul you're very distinguished people very proud of their heritage and they trace their ancestry back to king david the founder of jerusalem. So i mean this is a family takes its ancestry seriously and so one of the problems i think was not so much her gender but class. She sounded aristocratic to them. She spoke terribly well very clipped and some people just hated that. And it's one of the many ingredients which actually made her disoriented and not as happy as she might have made a very clever little girl. And i mean as she was growing up quite small. She wasn't very clever. Little girl and i discovered family letter from her aunt mamie. Anyway she noticed rosalyn has a six year old and she rosalind is alarmingly clever. She does her sums for pleasure and invariably gets them right and i thought that alarmingly was very significant because roseland had three brothers but the fact that the girls should be the cleverest really did
Indian Farmers Demand Repeal Of Agriculture Industry Reform Laws
"Of thousands of farmers living on the outskirts of India's capital have been protesting against new laws that deregulate the agriculture industry. They fear for their livelihood and say they will stay there until these laws are repealed. MPR's suits me to product has this report. Distant farmers have made Hy Vee is leading to New Delhi Day New home. They do laundry on the street and sleep in the back of trucks lined with straw and blankets. There's even an open air barbershop offering free haircuts. My God, by loved the more difficult than any Danny Gelati. They won't let me get away with this deception. Protesters sing. They're referring to Prime Minister Nouri in Ramadi and the three reforms he got past this fall to deregulate the farm sector. You can't take people for a ride in the name of reforms when they found the bag V. M. Singh is the head off a farmer's association. Most of his fellow protesters come from the northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana and Millie grow wheat and rice. For years, the government has bought the bulk of the green and a guaranteed rate. It's like a safety net, says Agriculture economist Seema Butler. If market doesn't work, let's surprises fall government is there to buy. So there's a prize assurance. But the new laws open up the market to private buyers who will not be bound by a price guarantee. The farmer's field. They lose their safety net. They can barely scrape a living as it is, says Marta. The farmers have this anger that the tractor caused machine recalls. Too many or fertilizer, or prices are going up. But their income has not been increasing. Moody says the new laws will give farmers new opportunities Hominy Gone on, man. It's a noble deed, The farmers will have the freedom to sell directly to private companies, he says more the insists that if they have unsold surplus green, the government will continue to procure it. There are doubts toe all must believe that procurement might not have a long life agricultural economist our drama, Kumar says the government's own advisers have urged it to limit how much grain advice Government warehouses are already overflowing with surplus green. Farmers. It also skeptical about the reforms because of the way in which they were rushed through Parliament without much debate. All these come together to create a very bad impression, complete absence of trust between farmers and the government that lack of trust has led to a long stalemate. Five rounds of talks between farmers and the government have failed in the Supreme Court is also trying to mediate. But Farmer leader bm Singh says they'll keep protesting until the laws are scrapped. Farmers have a lot of patients, he says. Then we lose the club. The patient of the farmers said that he waits for the next crop to come. This is a natural patients given by the Almighty to us. Farmers spend their whole lives waiting for the next crop, he says. They'll wait for justice to
Episode 77: Police Reform, Public Safety, and Gun Violence Prevention
"And so I'm wondering if we can just start I kind of calling out the elephant in the room which is talking about, you know, the background like what why now are we seeing all these conversations about race and policing Beyond, you know, maybe just suck the recent shootings that have drawn attention to police reform. I guess I'll start then again, good morning everyone in admissions earlier, but greetings behalf of our national presence l&j Davis where she's actually the police chief of Durham North Carolina city of New York and she puts sadly enough police culture wins out a lot more time you compare to policy and I think when you look at what's our critic just and the recent birth But historically for decades and then some cases leaving probably go back to hundreds of years. Fortunately. This is nothing new in our community. So will they be communities of color African American communities wage? I think when you look at what occurred Mister Floyd, it really caught the country where it was pretty much all able to view here. I think get some bad public confirmation that even eight minutes and forty six seconds is not enough to address the Injustice of our country. And so the complexities go well beyond lot, of course about this law enforcement for most persons of my opinion represent the government meaning most citizens would probably never be the mayor of their city or their city council or both. We would encourage him what a meat sauce and do those meetings, but it main ways that that rank-and-file officers that beat cop is the government and so when I look at this definitely will ennoble standpoint we're outraged birth What occurred with mister Floyd be very Frank were outraged even going back before you until we outraged by really just decades and Decades of things that have occurred in this space. So, how do we respect and honor everyone's Humanity? How do we ensure the Irwin Fields as though they can and will achieve the American Gene regardless of edgy maybe and so from an overdose standpoint and we sit in front of Congress both the u.s. Sending US House of Representatives is that these issues go well beyond law enforcement. We in law enforcement have to own it off. And so I look back to Ferguson Missouri many of us tried and and continue to try to get the kinds of reforms and things we felt we needed after Michael Brown Stephanie Sussman deaths of many other three one more than Aragorn and so on and we were not successful. I think what you're seeing now is a cross-section of not just African-Americans, but all Races and then from genders and dead. And demographics across the board say this time we're going to put a stake in the ground and do our best to adjust. We saw over those eight minutes and 26 seconds. And then the broader thing is to age is of class and education housing jobs, et cetera is a whole lot more complex than just what occur but we had Noble or asking for comprehensive reform now just in law enforcement but looking at kind of a hobby. Oh, shared resources across our entire National landscape know, I mean, I think that that context that larger placement is huge and Clayton a under sort of what your perspective is as someone who literally as we've described it on this podcast is is also boots on the ground but maybe from a different direction. Yes, you know, this is not what they say the straw that broke the camel's back. That's pretty much what we're experiencing right now. I mean a lot of the Injustice and the stuff has been going on for decades. And we knew about it, you know, but some of the people that are never in power always turned a blind eye because as you say the video wasn't prevalent a lot of things just wasn't out there. But now I think Society changes you're starting to see, you know, the the people wake up almost, you know, as they say they're not starting to be woke but when you have a sister that's been put together for you know, decades generation and misses the status quo other system. It's so hard to change overnight. It's so hard to make adjustments where you know, it's kind of a finger it's going to take a lot of sacrifices going to take a lot of love. It's going to take a lot of you know, just Community effort in order to put for certain things to make sure that you know, we change the system from within and from without people try it like no one wants to keep getting pulled over by law enforcement. No one wants to keep going, you know the same old same old when all them Going to do is live. All I want to do is live and a lot of folks and how communities they are in survival mode because they've been surviving for so long that that's all they know. So when you got individuals in a survival mode and they're trying to move around or they're trying to you know, make sure certain things for they family is good, you know, if individuals around me willing to do anything anything wage and everything to anybody to because that's that's Survival Mode. They not living anymore because they they feel like it's not worth. It don't matter know regardless will happen. Everything will still be the same that's how they feel and and you know, that's what you know, we have to do and change that mindset on your holiday. You perceive certain things because if they always feel defeated and their survival mode, it's going to stop progress from family, you know, and then the places where it needs to be because they're not thinking about their future. They not thinking about nobody else feature. They thinking only in the present and that day to survive just for the next ledge

Burger King Urges People to Buy Takeout -- at Other Restaurants
"What a year. This has been so this last friday before the holidays. Here's a little sweetness. From an unexpected source burger king the multibillion dollar fast food chain is urging hungry people to buy takeout meals right now. Hardly a shocker. But here's what is in. The uk and france burger king is urging diners to eat somewhere. Else there's more to life than a whopper burger king. Uk said early this week in an instagram post. Is there really well anyway. The previous day. The government announced that london other parts of southern england would move into tier three restrictions because of rising cova rates under tier. Three restaurants pubs must close with the exception of offering takeout and delivery meals as in the us. Corona virus restrictions put thousands of small businesses and their employees at risk in response to the crisis. Burger king's instagram post extolled the virtues of variety of independent eateries. It said quote. There are many great dishes from thousands of restaurants that deserve to be as famous as the hopper for consumers. The call to action was clear. Hold off on the burgers. Independent restaurants need all our support the chain stated but the gesture went even further burger. King is pausing its own drool. Worthy burger picks and until those smaller restaurants can reopen. The chain is offering its valuable instagram. Real estate to independent restaurants for free burger king invited them to share photos of their own signature dishes on the b k account along with the hashtag walker and friends. Perhaps it's the dearth of good news. Or maybe it's because advertising someone else's product is well hardly ever done but the post went. Viral reaction was swift and almost entirely positive newspaper called money control called the campaign a noble initiative. All of a sudden. I have renewed faith in humanity. One man named bob. Hayes tweeted on twitter. Another observer commented that burger king quote has won many hearts across the globe others call the initiative bold classy an even astounding. Naturally someone couldn't resist. They called it a whopper of a campaign from a strategic perspective. The campaign is indeed a hopper that helps burger king further. It's already solid identity as a marketing mastermind. This is what an industry leader looks like. Acts like an advertises like commented copywriter. Dave delicado on linked in indeed one observer wondered what would happen if other fortune five hundred companies followed a similar playbook also on linked in ian k a manager at an israeli air traffic business. Mused imagine this happening the travel industry with a giant. like american. saying we can't get you home to israel right now but united can here's their link and safe. Travels burger king's instagram initiative follows. It's equally shocking when a month earlier with hospitality industry under siege burger king. Uk suggested followers. Patronize its actual competitors. Mcdonald's taco bell. Kfc among them. Now we have only one question for the fast food chain and it's not about pickles or fries. It's when are you going to do this in the us be k. But despite that niggling negative we have to end. Positively burger king's generosity hits. Just the right note for a world been through far too much in twenty twenty. Hopefully it shining a little good karma on the holidays just when we need it
How one bookstore has adapted to the pandemic economy
"Janet alison. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much pleased to be here. so why. don't you start by painting a picture for us. When someone walks into source booksellers and looks around for the first time. What do they see. Well they see a lot of book a lot of hope so We have a very small store. Where under nine hundred square feet. We utilize the the space very efficiently. And very well. I think so. The two walls are lined with bookshelves. And then we have movable We call them the trees because of shaped like a fear mid com trees their wheels so we can move the shelves around to acquired different uses of the space space. We used to move them out of the way if we would have in store events So we can have room for chairs and things like that. They're like the books. Go you know the just rolling over the great great. Yeah and and before the pandemic arrived How would you describe your relationship with your customers. Did you have regulars. Did you enjoy interacting with customers when they came in the door. Did you recommend books. So what was it like all its head Sort of regulars. We had a customer that we do going away party. You know when they were going away. It's like noble michigan much But right now we have you know visits from customers. Doesn't can't can't stay away but are being as safe as they can to. Still talk in kate with us and going into the pandemic. How would you describe how business was going right before. Say in january or february of this year okay. So we're doing pretty well. We've been in this space or eight years. In fact i paid all the bills of march up until the last about fifteen hundred dollars worth so When the shutdown order came along for my governor. That was to happen on a monday but when monday came it was like a curtain dropped soon and we were shocked to say the least and i thought. How are we going. What's going to happen. How how are we gonna put. It was like that it was like jerky. So we couldn't figure out quite what do but my daughter alison quickly moved us onto eight online platform. And she was doing that. I was scrambling to find grants or figure out what else we could do. So it was. It was on a shaky time. And know i knew it would not be wise to close the business even though people were doing that as it was easier to shutter the door and close the business. So that's where we are when you say that. The curtain came down. Do you mean like the government said that you couldn't have people inside or was it just people stopped coming no. It's just that people were not allowed to come and so we didn't have sales because of their absence because we would basically just have in store sales yet another you did and you started doing online sales. And i'm wondering if in those early months was there any point in time when you worried. Oh my god we might not make it. We might go out of business if things don't pick up. I think one of the unique things about. I don't know if it's just with black businesses or business that you're we we started we. We didn't have any Feeling of it's gonna work or or or or money or money so it's just movement going and in the mission may contain is more more like that but i was totally sure that we would not close the business. We have had times in the past when we've had to change and things differently and become better businesses and this is another time but we've had to change it and be a different kind and better business and when i say bitter serving the community serving our customers serving people now across the whole country because people are falling in all of that. Because was doing that so we had a couple of grants and we had unexpectedly and without requesting checks came from some very loyal customers who wanted to see us continue so that was like fried do that. Oh that's a beautiful story so there were customers that were looking out for you in a way because they wanted you to make it and then there were other organizations around the area would betray economic development corporation. We check town and are any ideas. All these are local Of places funding faces that offered grants and so those are the things that we applied for saw and we were able to in march off. Yes particularly Enabled march person in april. I think we got smog win. But that's how we stayed alive and then people responded to our online sales so much so that every time we send a package out in says we will omega tea and chocolate mousse. Oh wait so much as a little. Thank you the low big big thank you a little something but even now sometimes we throw a little re dp in the fact that the the other part of that is that doing business in a new and different way mostly online phone calls emails is. Somebody's even asking us to do things on instagram. Is changing what the needs are for employment in the store. I never thought about that until just really recently. You know we we have to figure out what it is. We really do need. We do need help but we have to figure out what we need now. That was different than before. Yeah and my last question is if the two of you have any words of advice or inspiration for other small business owners who are struggling in. What's been a really devastating year for the economy for how they can be resilient and make it through. I think business in general is saying that we do where we take risks. And we don't know what i risk tolerances until things happen. I think it's being flexible Finding out what's needed in. China meet that and and be as appreciative. And as i guess grateful grape light with with as much humor as we can because It is tough and it's not just offer office stuff for everybody and i think we just have to take courage and move on. Uc advertise that. We have come to us from people to serve them as they need to be served and keep on going janet. Alison thank you so much for your time.

How to profit from a distorted real estate market?
"This is kelly. From and i've been listening to the show for a while. Now thanks for the helpful advice when the pandemic started real estate sales in my areas slowed way down but for month or two then. They started back up again. Fuelled by lower supply as more sellers kept their homes off the market now. The overall market is way up with housing prices at least five to ten percent higher this year compared to the last however it's a very lopsided distorted market. No one wants to buy condos or small spaces. Everyone wants big spaces further out of the city and anything with a backyard. Is there a way to profit from these changes. Hey kelly thanks so much for calling in could you hear from you. I've actually heard much the same thing about the real estate market. Of course real estate markets very quite a lot by location the market in brooklyn is going to be completely different from the birmingham alabama market. And it's not just extreme comparisons like that from city to city state to state province to province etc lots of variations but generally speaking in areas. I'm familiar with. I've heard quite a bit the same as kelly. How at the beginning of the pandemic everything slug way down. But then it picked back up because of the difference in supply and demand and such and for sale prices are actually up a lot of places just not for condos or anything that's a small urban space and that's fueled by a couple of concerns first of all people are looking for backyards and outdoor spaces or anything that's that's larger you know the a small apartment But also it's not just because a safety concern. It's also because everybody is working from home working from home and going to school at home and even as we come out of the pandemic hopefully or at least transition to a new phase. I think more and more people are going to continue to be in those kind of environments. So that's why people are looking for larger spaces now inside us a life. I think it's important not just real estate. Because let's make this broader. You always wanna look at what people are missing or not paying attention to you. Do want to be a real estate investor in the traditional sense and snap up properties future. Rentals maybe this is a good time to acquire some of those condos. If you're thinking five to seven years out or whatever but i would say also like use this time to make sure your house in order like your own house you know no pun intended there You know make sure you have a good credit score. Make sure you have your emergency fund three to six months worth of expenses. Pay off any debt that you can or can't pay it off. Try to consolidate it to low interest at so you're at least not going further and further behind and perhaps most important of all like before you invest in real estate. Consider other options. As i said in the beginning like there's so many other things you can do i think. Having a diversified real estate portfolio people always talk about. I think that's a noble goal. It's not that. I think it's it's bad. It's just like so many other options. As i said i'd also requires you to have significant assets in the first place. So if you're not there yet Defer that goal and work on something else and don't be discouraged because you know first of all those other options and second remember that a lot of those other real estate investors are not necessarily doing that. Well you always hear these success stories about them.

"Princes magic mirror once upon a time in a far away kingdom a prince named told us was looking for a bride and it wasn't going. Well try as he might. The prince couldn't find someone who liked him for him instead. It was an endless parade of young noblewoman. Who wanted to be queen one day and just viewed him as a path to the throne like he was a set of finally carpeted stairs instead of a whole person with a whole personality. A lot of the suitors assumed. Tomas would be shallow because many princes were shallow. It was a side effect to being raised in a castle. And being given everything you wanted whenever you wanted it when you didn't have to work first things you ended up not really appreciating them. Luckily for him. tomas wasn't like that. Though his parents the wise old king and queen had done everything in their power to make sure their son was a good kind well rounded person. From the time he was little he would spend time with all the workers of the castle. He mended clothes with the taylor's and beat them clean with the washers. He pulled onions with the gardeners and then turned them into soup with the chefs. He learned to swing a sword with the nights and how to tell a joke from the jesters his favourite though were the horses. He was forever at the stables learning to ride when he was young and then taking his favorite stallion out for races through the woods when he was older as a result the prince was young but wise. Tough but fair and strong but gentle. Everyone agreed he was going to make a wonderful king because he was already a wonderful young man and he was definitely absolutely no means the sort of whiny shallow prince. You hear about in stories still. The nobles and their daughters thought the worst they would come riding to the castle on horses of snow white and midnight black trailing matching velvet capes and wearing swords all gilded in studded with gemstones. They would present their beautiful daughters with royal heralds who proudly declared their names the daughters were beautiful and richly dressed and quiet. Because that's what they thought prince wanted. It wasn't what tomas wanted though. He wanted a bride. That was bright and funny and kind one that could so her own dresses and race through the moonlit woods on horseback with him so one by one. The noblewoman appeared before him and won. I won the prince turned them down. My don't need your riches or your beauty. Tomas declared one day. I'm looking for love. Not just a pretty face. He thought that would clear things up. But it only made it worse. The nobles and their daughters still came but now instead of approaching on their finest horses all draped with silks and treasurer. They would come with guitars and books of poems. The girls would sing romantic songs and offer their hands in marriage with flowery declarations that lasted for hours and ended up saying nothing at all. It was clear that none of them meant a word. They said they were still just trying to use him to be queen so one by one they appeared and one by one. The prince turned them down. I hate all of this. He said one day to his barber. A kindly man named miguel. The barber cut his hair and the queens and kept the king's beard neat but he was also one of the wisest man in the kingdom and people were always coming to him for advice. I can see why. Miguel replied these brides to be are no good and seek your father's throne you are looking for love and they only see a kingdom. Well what can i do. Tomas said i wanna find someone but now they're all pretending to love me and it's even worse than when they thought i wanted someone beautiful and quiet. I want someone interesting. Someone funny someone who could really love me. He side tilting his head for miguel to snip around his neck. How do i find real love. It's like trying to find a teardrop in a stormy sea the barber thought while he snipped and styled the prince's hair of course tomas had spent some time working for him and knew how to do it himself but they both prefer to let miguel do it so they could chat. I have an idea the barber said though. It's a little strange. Oh said tomas with a smile. Please tell me. Miguel told him his idea and while it was more than a little strange the prince liked it very much the very next day another noble woman was paraded before him she marched through a grant hall crowded with workers in the castle and people from the nearby town all eager to get a glimpse of who may be the new queen. My fair daring most courageous prince. She said already laying it on thick. I have long loved you from afar. I've seen you riding your warhorse like a gallant night. I've seen you giving food the poor like the very soul of generosity. Truly i know that nothing would make me happier than to be your queen and to love you. Of course she added quickly inside. Tomas rolled his eyes. She'd never seen him before and even if she had she certainly didn't know him well enough to love him instead of justice missing her as he wants would have though. He smiled and clapped his hands very well. Tomas said if you wish to marry me. I have but one request for you. Anything my prince. She said barber he called. Miguel came out holding a bundle wrapped in silks and handed it to the prince as gently as though it were a baby. Tomas unwrapped the silk slowly and pulled out an old hand mirror. This is a magic mirror and it doesn't show the reflection of your face but the reflection of your heart as tomas said this the gathered people gasped and craned their necks to see. If you truly love me then we will only see your beautiful reflection but if you're lying your reflection will be as ugly as your lies and then your face will change to match. Tomas looked at the waiting noblewoman. And smiled but you truly love me as you've said so surely you have no fear of looking in my mirror. The girl had turned white as a sheet. Her hands trembling. I a i forgot i'm I'm actually engaged. Yes that's it. I already have a husband or fiance or whatever. How could i be so forgetful. I'd better get home. He's probably wondering where i am. By and with that the noblewoman turned and fled from the hall.
Toni Bernhard on Self-Compassion and the First Noble Truth
"Because it is so great to have you with us on the wisdom comcast. I'm really happy of asia. Thanks daniel think we might start off with you know so in about two thousand and one is when you you got sick. I believe in and seems. Then you've found inspiration in buddhist teachings and practices for learning how to be sick and we're gonna get into that in detail. But i wondering if you could tell us a little bit about how you initially came across these teachings and actresses okay. Well it was an about ten years before. I got sick so approaching thirty years. This may is nineteen year of my suffering from chronic ghana's so when i was in my early twenties i developed some interest in spiritual matters a lot of alan watts. I got my mantra from the maharishi. And then my husband. And i raised kids. All of that was put aside and when they Either late high school or had left home. When i had my wartime to myself. I started Looking back into spiritual practices and maybe only academic would do this. I bought like six copies of the dow teaching. Maybe five and i read the same verse in each one and then wrote my on verse based on my understanding of those translations and i have no idea were any of that is but it's relevant because one of the translations was by stephen mitchell and i found myself it was a great translation but i've found myself really interested in the footnotes because he can't there may have been some other people but he noted several times quoted this Somebody called master sung son. Who i subsequently learned was a korean zen master who when he first arrived in the states. I was fixing washing machines but then developed a Songa in providence rhode island and now is worldwide. His quantum school is in. And i just love the the quote senate came across one that that said no south. No problem i thought whoa. Whoa sounds no problem. I didn't know what it meant. But i also note was jam. He fascinated me so much. These footnotes that i went to the library at uc davis campus shields library and it went to the card catalogue and looked up sung sun and discovered that in the dr day basement of shields library were rows and rows of buddhist books and i found his dropping ashes on the buddha but i found a treasure trove and i started leading mostly tree traditions zen tibetan and tear baden. I couldn't get enough. Just taking him out piles and That's how i. I learned a lot about the buddhist teachings but i thought what am i supposed to do and so i wrote just stephen mitchell and i don't remember what i said but i remember what he wrote back to me. He said looking at an painting of an orange is not the same as eating orange. And then he recommended to possible dharma centers that i could go to from. I live in davis which is near sacramento so that central valley and they were both in marin county bay. Area was john. Toronto sonoma's zen center. I think and the other one was called spirit rock meditation center and he recommended jack cornfield and i don't remember why i chose that have no. I've just been thinking. How did i get there.
Israeli parliament takes step toward new national elections
"Israel's parliament voted to dissolve itself yesterday and if the move is approved further readings. It could lead to the country's fourth election within two years. Well here to tell us more is less than kaplan summer. Who's a journalist for herat's based in tel aviv Can you tell us what happened in parliament. Yesterday it was quite a fiery session. Yes so there was a preliminary vote yesterday to dissolve the parliament which would trigger new elections that would presumably take place in march The vote was sixty one. Four dissolution and fifty four voting against it the block. The voted against it was prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu was Block this is just sort of a culmination of the dysfunctional relationship in the coalition government. That's existed now since last march when opposition leader. Benny gaunt's decided to join. Benjamin netanyahu government and ever since it's kind of been like gaunt's is a political novice playing checkers. And benjamin netanyahu has been playing a three dimensional chess. new election would be advantageous for neither of them But they are now a stuck in a position. It looks like we're we're rolling towards an inevitable for election less than two years. So is this. The end of what was a very shaky coalition extremely shaky coalition and essentially to be fair The prime minister has basically broken many of the elements of the agreement that they signed last march the most important of which being that they would immediately in a in a timely way. Put together a budget for twenty. Twenty one and israel at the end of twenty twenty still does not have an official budget for that year. It's been a series of Of temporary measures. So face of the fact that netanyahu is pretty blatantly Stating that. He's not going to honor their agreement in which Gaunt's would become prime minister this coming summer and in which he is continuing to stand in the way of the passage of the budget Gaunt's has lost so much face politically that he felt he had to stand up for something and And is now moving towards trying to end this government and move towards new elections. Which of course means he doesn't get his his leadership on under that agreement. Do you think that. Netanyahu ever intended to share power with guns. I think that he would have. He would have happily shared power with of guns had basically agreed to Everything that That netanyahu wanted netanyahu's top priority. It's pretty clear is to game the political system to his advantage. He is set now for his His corruption child to To go on in february and pretty much every move that he's making is Is heading towards that but it doesn't look like. He had a great intention of of moving towards rotating in the summer. that's connected to this This budget issue. I think his party fears that if they passed a budget that was good for next year. It would let the rotation go go through and if there's no budget then then there there's a lot of opportunity for for putting minefields in the in the rotation agreement but But perhaps if if ganz had been more completely submissive to netanyahu he would've he would've given him a chance but the more that submits to netanyahu the more his political capital Drops and drops. But one of your colleagues on herat says the party blue and white was the victim of the most sophisticated political sting operation ever managed by a first class master swindler. Pretty strong language is widely believed Yes it is. I mean guns struck an impressively noble. But a little bit of a naive figure When he agreed to enter this coalition agreement which was clearly to his disadvantage he had he had more political capital after the last election. then he Then he spent and he said that there was a crisis. There's a pandemic The country needs to come together and And netanyahu convinced him that That it wasn't the time for For political horse trading and competition and that everyone had to pull together so he kind of naively went into this coalition agreement believing or deciding to trust netanyahu to stand by his word and now many months later he has woken up and realized that That he has been taken for a ride. Israel of course like the rest of the world is gripped by a crisis without political stability. Can that be effective recovery. No and the most You know now that are hopefully looking towards a vaccine and the end of the actual Health crisis The fact that That we don't have our budgets planned that That there's no plan or any kind of vision towards economic recovery wants the pandemic is over is going to set israel many steps behind other countries I it is. It's a it's a terrible situation to be in the last thing that the israeli people want right now is a new election. But it looks like that's what they're gonna get

Succeed Without Selling
"Today. It's just me taking an opportunity to share my motivation and goals behind writing my new book succeed with that selling throughout my career. I've watched small business. Owners and sales people do things that actually make it harder for them to be successful. Their sales practices have actually been working against them. And i find this tragic and unnecessary. I realized that the foundation of these behaviors is a misunderstanding of what works. And what doesn't and it's rooted in decades of experience in education. That is taken us down a really bad road. I'm sure you've all heard of the abc's of selling always be closing at. This has been a mantra since the nineteen eighty s. And i believe it has driven sales people to be so focused on selling that they've created a general feeling that sales is a dirty word. Just think about it when you meet someone and they say their salesperson than they have to apologize for being a person and it really shouldn't be there be that way it really should be a noble profession. It just hasn't been one because of the way people have been acting and you know when we focus on selling we're focused on ourselves and our needs you know we need to be quota we need to make payroll. We have a lease we have to pay. We have to feed our family. Kid needs braces. But guess what a no one cares and be. That's not where our focus should be. I strongly believe that. Instead of focusing on selling we should be focused on learning instead of always be closing the. Abc's of sales are really always be curious throughout the pages of succeed without selling.

"Welcome to noble blood production of iheartradio and grim and mild from Aaron Minke Listener discretion is advised on November eighth fifteen forty one queen. Catherine Howard was brought to a small room to sit opposite. Thomas Cranmer Archbishop of Canterbury. The Archbishop assured King Henry the eighth few days prior that his interrogation would be harsh and merciless. That would import on the king's young bride the severity of her crimes and scare her into full honesty. But when cranmer saw the young girl he felt his resolve drain away. She was weeping already. Frantic with grief and terror her bloodshot eyes darting around the room. As if an executioner's blade could appear at any moment but she also looked so small so young she was in nineteen year old girl and she was in a chair that looked far too big for her. Grandmother really had all the information already that his investigation really needed only two weeks ago. The allegations had just been a rumor. A single rumor from a single source. The claim was this that the new queen have been less than virginal when she had married the king. Someone had informed the archbishop that in Katherine thome growing up. She had not one but two affairs first with her music teacher and then with her grandmother's secretary did you or did you not cranmer began. As soon as Catherine had caught her breath. Have a sexual relationship with your music teacher. Henry Mannix when you're living with your grandmother the Dowager Duchess in Lambeth Catherine wailed no sir. It was a flirtation. That's all he never knew me. In the way a husband knows his wife. I have only ever been true to King Henry. And what of a secretary some time later? A man named Francis D-ram did you know him intimately Catherine's breath began to quicken. Radically cranmer noticed her cheeks and dress sleeves. Were both wet with tears. Be Honest Child. Cran said the Lord is Merciful to those who are honest as almost nafter thought he added. I have already spoken to both men. Catherine didn't respond and CRAN mark continued. You Endear Him. Call each other husband and wife did you. Not Catherine nodded. Were you formally bound to Dsm? The archbishop continued still unable to quite locate the harsh tone but he had rehearsed. Did you lie with him once? More Catherine nodded her head. We did lie together. Two or three times in my bed in the maidens chamber when I lived in Lambeth but I never betrayed King Henry. I never betrayed my husband or sinned against him in any way but she had already said enough she had betrayed. The king betrayed him by pretending to be a virgin in a lie by omission humiliated. The king by now letting the whole world know that. He had been fooled by a teenager. Catherine broke down in sobs as he left. The archbishop quietly whispered to the guards that they should remove any items from her chamber. That might allow her to commit suicide. Catherine Howard and King Henry.

Which would mean her marriage to Henry was invalid getting him off the Hook Easy Catherine have to give her jewels and possessions and live in exile away from court for the rest of her life. It looked as though that was what was going to happen. It looked that way for exactly three days three days. After Catherine Howard's interrogation Francis theorem revealed under torture.

"Welcome to noble blood production of iheartradio and grim and mild from Aaron Minke Listener discretion is advised Henry. The eighth died fifteen forty seven obese and one leg still rotting from a bad fall off a horse. Decades earlier after his corpse was embalmed and spiced it lane state in the Presence Chamber of Whitehall surrounded by burning taper candles and then two weeks later. The slow procession to his burial site began carriage followed by hundreds of men on horseback. The carriage itself was a massive elaborate and tall pulled by eight horses each ridden by a child on top of the hearse in full view of the public. That had come out onto the streets to say goodbye to their king was an effigy. Made of wax and wood meant to resemble the king in his more handsome days. The effigy were satin and Velvet and Jules with rings dotting its gloved hands. It wore a crown but when King Henry's procession finally reached its destination. Saint George's Chapel Windsor Castle. His tomb wasn't gilded or flanked by sculptures type of pomp. You would expect for the Final Resting Place of a man who saw himself as a dynastic hero. The champion of England chosen by God to lead their church and their nation that was the tomb he had wanted for himself one. He had described early in his life. A double tomb with effigies in marble carved angels on the wall and prophets perched on overlooking columns but King. Henry was not a man who wanted to acknowledge his own death to spend thousands of pounds while he lived celebrating the idea that one day he would be gone he never built his own tomb and so instead he was interred simply in the vault beneath. Saint George's Chapel beneath a plain black marble slab. What was supposed to be? His temporary resting place became the place that Henry the one of England's most famous monarchs remained permanently but one of his wishes for burial was honored. Though at the time of his death Henry. The eighth was on his sixth and final wife Catherine Parr. He specified that he should be buried not next to her but next to his third wife. Jane Seymour. He was married three times after her but it was her memory that Henry Clung to the memory of the wife who had done all of the others hadn't given him a living son the two of them side by side for history for eternity the man who had six wives choosing to be entwined forever with the one he idealized and romanticized and missed until finally he joined her in death. I'm Danish warts and this is noble blood Jane Seymour was never going to make a very advantageous marriage. That's what she knew growing up in the Wiltshire countryside her mother's seventh child with three surviving older brothers. She was still unmarried in her twenties largely because her father wasn't wealthy enough to put up an attractive dowry and so the family used what connection. They had to send her to court where she would be a lady to. Catherine of Aragon. The Queen of England chain was blonde and fair. And while she wasn't unattractive no one would ever call her great beauty. The hope was that you would meet a nice man at court. Maybe a night banner at or the like and that she would get married. Jane was raised Catholic and raised to be a dutiful wife above all else choose only barely literate but she was an expert at embroidery and housekeeping and one day she would bear a Brood of children like her mother. Everyone knew it. Her mother had given her father three living sons. There's no greater success than that. Good Sweet Jane went to court and watched as Catherine of Aragon was humiliated and banished and betrayed by her husband. Catherine was a devout Catholic to she prayed every day she was a princess daughter of King and Queen and she had loved her husband with her whole heart. Catherine never complained never became angry when her husband flirted with other women danced with other women slept with other women. Catherine hadn't been able to give Henry a son now just the little Princess Mary. The girl with red blond hair like her father and a dutiful Catholic heart like her mother princess. Mary was only a few years younger than Jane. Herself and Jane had watched Mary's life play out like some sort of Greek tragedy. The girl had been the Pearl of court beloved and doted on by her father until Katherine fell out of favour until Henry fell in love with Angolan and declared Mary Illegitimate. Mary was stripped of her title. No longer princess just a lady now and banished from court doomed to teenage years of anguish of begging her father for mercy I shred of love or even acknowledgement all while being forbidden to see her mother ever again when an NBA. Lynn became queen. Anne adopted the most happy as her motto and pushed Henry to continue to ignore Mary and let Catherine suffer. The misery of her own making chain didn't mind being Queen and New Lady. Although of course you would never admit out loud. She still had sympathy for the former queen and for the ones Princess. Mary still banished from court. Even after Catherine of Aragon eventually died..

who did the first edition of Oliver Twist but cruickshank initially rose to prominence with political cartoons he did for the satirical periodical the skirt urge he did one cartoon in eighteen sixteen that's particularly interesting featuring Ernest Augustus the Duke of Cumberland after he requested an increased salary from parliament and that request was rejected Ernest was the fifth son of King George the third and if you're into place him in the grand line of British monarchy he's also the uncle to Queen Victoria in the cruickshank drying called the financial survey of Cumberland and the Duke is being thrown out of the parliament building with a fire in Canon the Canon Ball Hits Him Square in the rear ripping the seat of his pants little piece of parchment with his request for the six thousand extra pounds flutters in the smoke in the background of the cartoon the Dukes new wife Frederica is wearing skimpy yellow dress that struggles to contain her Zaphon figure in polite society the new Duchess was of shall we say questionable morals I was her third husband her first husband had died and then she became informal engaged to earnest's brother that is until she got pregnant by someone else she married the child's father only for him to die conveniently just as she was set to divorce him and Mary Ernest rumors of husband number two being isn't had already made their way to British court in the cartoon Fredrika Gazes Leslie after three rather ugly soldiers while saying who could resist lovers such as these but there's something else interesting in the cartoon visible only if you look closely you see the new duchess and her three less than attractive lovers are standing on a hill and that hell is painted with a brown splotch from faraway looks like it could be much but when you look closer through the Brown paint you can see the remnants of a ghostly figure someone cruickshank had drawn and then decided to cover over summer stored versions of the cartoon reveal that the literally hidden figure is a man but a man drawn grotesque with big bulging fish is wearing only a nightshirt a red Gash Marxists slit throat and he holds a razor aloft still dripping blood is this a razor that I see before me the figure says in a speech bubble thou kannst not say I did it is see the Duke of Cumberland's wife wasn't the only one with the specter of murder hangover her the figure is a man named Celis the Duke of Cumberland's former Valet who was found have killed himself but under more than mysterious circumstances why did cruickshank decide to self censor the cartoon did he think that the implication that the duke committed murder was a step too far the truth is he was most likely protecting himself from a libel lawsuit the Duke had already proven himself litigious against people I suggest that sells his death was anything other than a suicide cruickshank would've wanted to avoid a lengthy and expensive trial and the possible subsequent prison sentence but still if you look closely at the cartoon the figure's still visible just barely an eternal reminder of the gruesome death that occurred one may night at one of the most prominent homes in London

"You're listening to mobile blood production of I heart radio and Aaron Minke. Listener discretion advised just a few years ago in two two thousand seventeen the esteemed British auction house Christie's put up for sale golden pendant encrusted with diamonds with a tiny portrait of George the fourth inside it was George the fourths bad luck to have lived during the peak of British political cartooning. He didn't actually become king until he was nearly sixty sixty and in his years as a Princeton wading and then as regent satirical papers became ubiquitous depicting him as a grotesquely overweight and heavy drinking taking clown wearing a military costume that never actually saw battlefield portrait in the lock that Christie's put up for auction. Look very different. It was unrecognisable from the buffoon that George would come to be seen as a this George. The fourth is young and gallant almost night like his his light. Brown hair is swept across his forehead. His lips are faintly red and his blue eyes are clear and bright. The locket had been passed passed down through descendants of Maria fits harbor the strikingly beautiful woman who captivated George the fourth so completely that even though it risked his position in the line of succession. He married her in secret. It's ironic that the period of history the bears George the fourths name the regency is synonymous with refinement and social constraint when George himself was such a figure of gluttony and excess he was a drinker gambler womanizer earn when he finally eight himself to death by rupturing his stomach his subjects had little sympathy for him but it is love story with Maria. Fitzherbert that maybe comes comes the closest to anything and George Life to resembling Jane austen romance the problem with Jane Austen novels. Though is they end with a wedding. They don't tell tell you about what happens afterward. When prince charming nation status miserable fatal flaws forced the star-crossed couple of part to grow old alone with loneliness and resentments now when Maria Fitzherbert is mentioned in histories of George the fourth it it's usually a side note and rail even by name. She's the quote divorced. Catholic that the rebellious prince legally married before his real marriage to his cousin caroline of Brunswick. Marie has less of a person than just one of the many examples of Georgia's youthful peccadilloes and early scandal that would soon be buried under many many more the Christie's pendant sold for three hundred and forty one thousand pounds nearly three times the auction houses highest highest estimate but the piece was incomplete. You see miniatures and lock. It's time we're usually produced in pairs. This pendant was no exception. It's it's mate was equally diamond encrusted featured inside a small portrait of Maria Fitzherbert but it would have been impossible for Christie's to have sold the matching set when George the fourth died. He still had Maria Fitzherbert lock it with him. When the king was buried it was buried with him held close beneath his crossed hands and I'm Dana Schwartz and this is noble blood the love story between George the fourth and Maria Turbine began with him seeing her from afar and deciding instantly that he was madly really in love with her. He was eighteen years old at the time and the Prince of Wales she was six years older and married Georgia's walking down the street with a friend and when the carriage containing Maria and her husband Thomas Fitzherbert came ambling up the Avenue Maria notice the prince right away and pointed him out to her husband has been who seemed uninterested but Maria looked back again and when she did she saw that Prince George had run into the middle of the street to chase the carriage. He had fallen behind by then but he was still looking straight at her as he faded into the distance. Maria had not married for love but who it's Thomas Fitzherbert was actually her second husband she had married for the first time when she was just a teenager to a man twice her age named Edward Weld a a wealthy landowner who resided Lola Worth Castle Edward Could Afford Maria a life of comfort and stability or at least he could've if he hadn't hadn't fallen off his horse three months after their wedding and died in fact he died so suddenly after their marriage that he hadn't even managed to sign a new will to provide for his young bride. All of his possessions were instead transferred to his brother and Maria was left with absolutely nothing. If she was going to survive she needed to marry again and quickly Thomas Fitzherbert. Her second husband has been was only ten years older than her. He was another landed wealthy Catholic a tall athletic energetic man but his health was less robust than it seemed a year into their marriage. His coughing began two years into their marriage could barely leave the house without heaving over in violent spasms atoms to try to get enough air a year after that. He was dead at twenty four years old. Maria Fitzherbert was twice witout and that was when she met George the fourth face to face for the first time Maria had been persuaded by her family to leave for morning behind and go to the opera in London just for one night her uncle Lord Sefton had urged her. It's time you get back out into society. George could hardly hardly believe his luck when he saw the woman from the carriage sitting across from him at the Opera House. She'd been so beautiful that day on the street that he had half convinced himself self the two was the dream while the opera was still going. He turned his companion and in his full voice demanded an introduction to her from. I'm that meeting a deep curtsey kiss on the hand. George was a man completely obsessed. He wrote letters to Maria and sink couriers to her apartments. Every day. He asked her to join him at dinners and parties. The woman graciously deferred even as a young man George already Eddie had a reputation for womanizing but that wasn't even really the problem here. The problem was that Maria was Catholic and there were no fewer than three laws in England at the time time that explicitly prevented the throne from marrying someone like her for George that was unacceptable. He had not stopped thinking about this woman. Since he saw her in the carriage and he had been in love with her from the moment he touched her hand at the opera and brought it to his lips and so the impulsive wholesome young prince took one of his daggers and stabbed it deep into his side. A surgeon was rushed to the scene and instantly patched the wound to prevent it continued leading but that wasn't what George wanted. Hey he told the surgeon go find Mrs Maria Fitzherbert. Tell her I've stabbed tabbed myself also tell her that if she does not come to my side. I'm going to pull off my bandages. You can't pull off your bandages. The surgeon said you'll bleed to death exactly George said chopped up and so the surgeon got into his carriage and went to Maria fitzherbert tasks at the the end of Park Street and delivered his message to the bewildered widow. Maria knew that getting into a carriage with the male surgeon to go visit the prince would be enough to cause was a scandal and so she agreed but only as long as they made a stop along the way to pick up a friend of hers the Duchess of Devonshire Georgiana cavendish Georgina would be something of escort to ensure that the visit was beyond reproach marie-anne the surgeon caught Georgina just as she was leaving her home to go on another other social visit but as soon as she heard the dramatic circumstances of why she was being summoned she immediately abandoned plans and join them when they made it it to Prince George's palace they discovered the stabbing wasn't just a made up story to entice Maria to his presence as she had been half convinced it was he had blood blood oozing out of his side dried streaks of it coming down his shirt small pool at his feet CEO Mary me the prince said or I'll rip off my bandages and and how bleed to death Georgiana Maria look at one another. George grimacing began pulling the dressing his wound okay. Maria said Ah Mary area Georgia's pain was instantly forgotten. He bounded down onto one knee and pressed a ring onto Marie his finger but just as a reminder Maria Maria had agreed to that marriage under the threat of imminent suicide as soon as she and Georgina were back in their carriage on the way home. The two immediately agreed that a proposal under those oh circumstances was definitely not binding. The prince wanted to marry her. Maria knew she couldn't marry him and so without leaving a forwarding address. Maria packed her things and fled the country..
