Is In-Person Worship an Essential Service?
"One day when this is all over we'll look back at what covid nineteen revealed about our society. One of the things will notice is what people were not willing to sacrifice the parts of our lives that we consider essential in charge. Do not and will reflect on this when we remember y and where people were willing to break the rules to defy police and public health officials to essentially say this right here is more important to me than not just my own safety but more important to me than everybody's safety and for some families that meant contact with the grandparents or loved ones for some jerks that meant going to a barbecue restaurant or jim but i think it's fair to say that after a year of this if you went back and plotted where exactly the most public. Anti lockdown actions were found in north america. Churches would be at or near the top of the list. Just listen this alberto church that has openly defied public health orders for months has officially been. Shut down thinking chanting in honking.

"Jennifer. Welcome to status. Go thanks jen. I'm really happy to be here today. I am really excited about our conversation. I know you and i had an opportunity to chat. Gosh probably towards china last year now About the work that you're doing so i'm looking forward to our audience being able to hear about the exciting things that you're doing but before we get started you've been holding out on me a bit. When we first talked you shared a bit about your background as an executive in the insurance industry. Why she didn't share was that your career started in sports marketing. And you've worked for the likes of the orlando magic the sonics and the storm. You have to tell us about your journey from sports marketing to insurance and now to the executive director of apprently. No that's a long sordid story so let's see the My background in sports Originated with my dad. My dad did play by play for the royals. And the chiefs and Then went on to. Cincinnati was third man on the reds in the early eighties. On wwl w and. I just grew up in sports and it was kind of a natural offset for me When i went into the insurance industry. I actually started off as a media. Buyer my first stop With progressive insurance. And cleveland and i went very quickly from doing media buying into running north america. Marketing event. marketing and sports. Marketing basically auditing fifty states at a stage where progressive in the nineties was trying to figure out its brand identity and that just sort of became the tipping point of the the spot where my sports endeavors began and before the nba. I worked for scott. Boris representing baseball players. When i left progressive and did marketing endorsements for those guys. It sort of seesawed between professional sports and insurance In in a kind of weird way because you know insurance and car dealers and everybody else spend so much. Money in sports marketing. It made me a strangely hot commodity. Because i understood the business side of it.
Could we colonize Mars?
"Are really only two options of other places in our solar system where humans could go to colonize mars and the moon and why not the other planets. Well the short answer to that is none of the others could be habitable. Even on their best days mercury and venus the two planets closer to the sun than us are just too dang hot among other things and once you get beyond mars which is one planet further away from the sun from us. Those other planets are either too cold or they made up primarily of gases. So it'd be like trying to live on a cloud pretty much so yes but a very terrible poisonous cloud is trying to kill. Yeah i don't like the sound of that at all. no but what about the moon. Why don't we colonize the moon. I we've already landed on it if we're so hell bent on colonizing something else. Why not the man okay. Good question. I've had the same thought. I recently read an article on the national space society website that provided this analogy with. I thought made a lot of sense so back. In the days of columbus the age of exploration some would call it. Europe was kind of the earth of today. It's where most first world people lived. Okay europeans were trying to explore unknown. Parts of the world that they could colonize so compare the moon to greenland and mars to north america con. Greenland was much closer to europe than was north america but it was only a stopping overplays. It just didn't have the natural resources that were needed and it wasn't large enough to create a real viable indigenous society. Gotcha north america on. The other hand was teeming with natural resources and was plenty large enough so to get their people. Had to be of hardy stock. Yep these were the kind of people who could be successful. So think of mars as north america in the fourteen hundreds and the earth as europe in the fourteen hundreds.

Jet Stream Brings on Cold Snaps
"And a recent addition about changes in the jet stream that Dr Weather patterns in North America and Europe What are those changes? And what do they mean for a person who loves to play in snow or makes their living in a snow dependent economy? Well, it's a it's an area of active research. The debate is whether or not we're going to start seeing this wave yer jet stream when we see that type of whether you can end up in situations where very cold Arctic blasts can make their way much further south, and that's exactly what we had seen during the Texas freeze. While the Arctic itself was actually much warmer than average, and it could possibly mean that you end up with maybe one or two more big snowstorms or cold blasts opportunities for making snow. If you're in a region that might be having trouble making snow, but we can't count on it. It's too uncertain at this point how this is going to unfold in the future when we have this type of sticky weather, so the jet stream getting stuck in this really wavy pattern. That's also what contributes to extreme flooding events s so if you're not getting that cold blast, you could end up with a lot of rain. Because you're stuck in a trough where there's a lot of low pressure systems delivering a lot of rain, and it's just that pressure system is not moving and then likewise, anyone who's stuck in the high pressure side of that of the ridge. They get stuck in a dryer season and its perpetual so it's not great news. Either way, I think, volatilities everywhere we look

It's played a central through two World wars. Revolutions. It's been a really important conduit for the world to you. One could say it almost helped told together the British empire and from some extent for a while there Uh, yeah. I mean, it holds today it carries about 12% of the world's trade goes through it. It's Zoe, the biggest prize. The most important aspect of that trade is, of course, oil. You know, the Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest exporter, sends oil through the canal to Europe in the North America oil comes the other way as this, uh, To reach Asian markets from wherever West Africa from the U.

Hamish Martin - The Secret Garden Edinburgh
"Hamish maltin co founder of the secret herb garden and the secret garden distillery. Thank you so much for joining me on the podcast today. I spent a time researching you yesterday. Hamish i fell in love with with you and your business. I even downloaded a copy of the secret garden book to listen to on audible when i'm driving up to scotland in some of this year so really looking for having a chat but before we get going where in the world you hamish. Well thank you I'm sitting currently in a study. An highest rebuild on sites which is secret have gone and to just outside edinburgh foot of the pentland hills Seven half acre have nasseri gotten. Wow it looks absolutely incredible another. I can say this. All of these podcasts lakes are used to go and do them all face to face and then covert came along. So i've had to learn to record remotely. But yet god i wanted to come and sit in that god. When i was looking at the pictures of online yesterday looks absolutely beautiful. So you are literally. i think. Probably obsesses world by by herbs and plants to the extent that i understand. You've grow six hundred of them yourself. So i thought maybe start with as you could just go through six hundred and let me know the attributes of now we went we do that. But that's that's quite impressive but it's hard to know where to start in many ways because you you've got a sharper distillery herb nursery revenge garden. You run events weddings so much more. But i i guess the backdrop to all of that is your love of plants. So if it's okay. We'll start there. And i'm just wondering when you decided you wanted a life changing you wanted. Your future to revolve around plants will win. Was that what was the trigger. That led you to sort of start. Studying tackles while i used to have back from another life. I used to have a a wine. Business in scotland colin variety which I started with my father. He cited possibly nineteen ago. But i'd already been the as. I love the wine trade because it was involved with the grapes in the growing. But i'd always had my loss of line. The small tiny piece land when i was twenty to stop growing always be addicted with hill running while swimming being was a while camping all that sort of debugging and all that sort of stuff But i i spent From ninety one to two years so computers at twelve years ago on a built in priority up and obviously supplying tiles and restaurants scotland and also down than With mine that i really sort of lost the soul of it Building business building a business and my real passion was in growing the plants. That is spending so much of my free time day and being outside and i thought you know what i don't change my lifetime Another will and actually went through a big change in my life at that point anyway and it was right on. I'm doing it and it was very big. Cutoff began Ended up selling in radicals. Now in morton's up here. And i retrained botanic gardens rob gardens edinburgh for two years and came home and i traveled quite a bit and worked with a Medicine management you call medicine man in north north america which doctor and south african to really understand thoughts. And it's not until you sit feed someday truly connected to From this and i had no idea where the path was going to take in any respect. All i knew was that i want to spend the rest of my life with hats. Specifically specifically hubs Any was a leap of faith To it but i'm not sure that you've announced your question but that but it i'd love it though. I love the fact that yeah that you do. Do you just sort of made that decision. It seems like a cooling and the more we hear about how much you can do with plants. I'm going to ask a medicine man in north america. That sounds fascinating. Wh what was involved. There is his his remarkable jensen nat Booth by trying to his. He's written some books action about the moments in my study. Here i is all about medicine will welcoming nature Basically it is hard school of of learning It's not sort of any books in words. It's more physical actions that side and understanding the communication that you can have with the outside world And it was. It's an ancient ancient System we've lost the connection in our modern world that actually is still very vibrant in in the community in the in the wildest Connection with nature and really was just to learn more about that so he very much taught me a lot more about the connection of nature and hides commune with nature and the rich dodson. South africa was phenomenal. Man he was all about how to what the policy was. Just specifically hub in a medicine with lawns And that's what i'd studied. And i grow hers but i don't grow herbs. I grow because of a lot of people think especially in the hospital. They hobbs a nice culinary aromatic plants and yet actually good for nature definition of a hub for me is its medicinal full. Stop so when you look at plants says medicinal you look at our own indigenous plants. That means chick we ground other than the line oak. Alda it means opens the door to every indigent in a wild plants even more so my hope my whole path has been to aim for more information and what with the medicinal on medicinal level. Sounds incredible i. I would love that adventure. I've just at this. I think i did an interview with somebody on on mushrooms and had no idea about the sort of the the my caelian underground the ground and how connected everything is and then that took me down the rabbit hole of trees and i just read a book called over story of you heard of that one. I haven't what what what. What was this a fiction book. It's fundamentally about. I suppose how. How the growth of trees put the sort of the the context of our time on earth and generations in context. But i just find a amazing how connected nature is so. Yeah i think i would. I would love to go on on that sort of adventure journey was. Was there any key things you learn from either of those two guys that really stands so sticks in your memory that may be reaffirmed that decision for you to have that sort of life change anything that really jumped out and you went. Wow that's incredible. I'm so glad. I'm on this adventure. Two things to one. You have two quite deep yourself And secondly is making sure that you on following any rules any rules any any known. Science rules excetera is all about the key. Word is imagination able to unlock the opportunity. I find it quite. I find science by straight yet. We live in a world now where we can't move because signs sector. Don't get me wrong. I believe in living in a balanced life taking sides and taking pods and somewhere in between is is is a balanced This science that we talk about entire nine science knows. Trees communicate together Is this this brand new science. No it's not in our. This has been known by indigenous peoples for millenniums. You know we're just very backward when it comes to We think brilliant on science but actually when it comes to that in the communication that happens. It's not just underneath the solar trees the helping to feed one another one's ill communication with the russians in. This always happens on plants as well you know. There is a communication plots. I'm not wearing assigned was not meant to be told there is an indication of vibration happens on a rock on a on a in the waters in the trees in the flies. It's all around us. It's a thin bail just to be able to then have a look underneath and then have that communication with it so i find that bit about science. I'm reading a beautiful book at the moment job and chat about how science is not catching up with all the sort of in a in a watkins of trees and how they work in the family unit etcetera etcetera. But that's been known for a very very very very long time

There is no. No definitive egg that's like this was a jungle fowl, and this was a chicken, but on the sliding scale of Aleutian. There is an arbitrary point at which we say now it's a chicken, and it has to do with the viability of interbreeding the species whatever, but the definite answer is at some point in history, a jungle fowl laid an egg, and out came a slightly different creature that we now call a chicken.

Five ten years hopefully hopefully sooner rather than later. We're going to flip the script on burning. Is Thought of as. that. For for me, personally I I was always one of those kids who was always obsessed with animals ever since a young age and dinosaurs started out being my favorite. Initially, I think everyone pretty much goes through that dinosaur phase, and that progressed to anything and everything that can walk swim fly crawl in really matter to me. Birds being my favorite, the front runners for multiple reasons one. They're super closely related to dinosaurs. So may argue rightfully so that they are modern day dinosaurs. Addition to that they have the ability suggested leave, and that was something that I admired and what I mean by that is they had the ability to look at their immediate surroundings. Decide you know. This isn't really suitable for me. I need greener pastures in. They can pick up fly in fine, a better environment to live in, and that is something that growing up in the Bronx in the projects, essentially that I always admired that Kinda live vicariously through bird's as I grew up. That's like. I'm. Also.

"WanNa get a better understanding of how we got here to this many infections? I know that you spoke to a worker about her experience cargill and we're not using her real name because she's worried that speaking out might affect her job security We're using the name Rachel instead. It's so to go into work every day. Wondering am I gonNA contract this virus and when I contract. This virus died from it and what's going to happen to my family if I die. How are they going to be financially secure? How they're gonNA miss me on. What's going to happen if my family gets it. When did she start hearing concerns about covert at this plan? Well between Rachel's account and also having talked to other people now in the plant We know that there was a lot of anxiety even before there was a confirmed case on April six. You know probably a lot of workplaces so there was anxiety like there was everywhere. Merch twenty the company starts saying that it's going to increase safety measures. Increased sanitation putting plastic sheets in common areas like locker rooms in the lunch room. But and Jamie. This is really key. Going forward workers were still working elbow to elbow shoulder to shoulder in the production. Lines and production had not been slow to give them any more space. There's also the concern of like. Are the tables being cleaned between people moving? Are the walls being clean down? Because people touch the walls people touch everything and yes. They tried to limit touch points. But it just did not work that. Despite workers having started to raise concerns was becoming very clear that the anxiety level about Cova nineteen and what a petri dish a meat plants like cargill or any of the other ones might be and then of course we have the first case that was diagnosed on on April sixth and that sort of ratchets up the discomfort concern in that plan. And so what happened after this? First case is I well between April sixth and April thirteenth. The number of cases at cargill proliferates from one thirty eight a real harbinger of things to come. It was a real sign. And that's when you started getting the media spotlight turn to this outbreak. The union says there are dozens of confirmed cases at the plant. Cargo says it's added more safety measures like temperature checks hand sanitizing so the company cuts hours to one shift at this point to prevent the spread while that only gets people inside the plant. Even more freaked out. You know they're trying to figure out how cutting the shift is in any way creating more space between workers. It's it's doing. The opposite concern was after all was said and done. We were so piled up because we were so short staffed. They moved everybody to one table causing them to all be shoulder to shoulder and also transferring people from one spot to another and not cleaning between people being transferred and so some of them are calling in sick because they're scared. Some of them are calling in sick because they're actually sick and then this is key. Some people are coming to work with symptoms for two reasons one because they need the money they need the job to feed their family and to because we have heard the accounts of a number of people who are being told that it's okay to come in with certain symptoms or if someone in their household has tested positive. What we don't know is how widespread that kind of message was Was it in a you know a couple mistakes made here or there was it a protocol we don't actually know and I can guarantee you. It is going to be one of the key points that will drive any kind of investigation or reviews and as you mentioned before during this time the shift was cut. That would just mean that people were working for less time during the day but this production line that you describe which is just packed with people cutting down the meet. That hasn't changed at all right. And this is when the Union start saying you have to shut this down. You have to shut this down. Our people are going to start getting sick. I think as soon as that email went out everybody. That fear was finally like really there. Everybody was so frustrated. Everybody was asking a million and one questions like. Why aren't we closed yet? Winter we closing. What's going on? The company takes that as sort of an unofficial call for an illegal work stoppage and then relations start breaking down between the company and the Union and all of a sudden that does really bad things for communications. Because you have the company communicating with workers who some of them by the way There are language barriers with to begin with you. Also have the union communicating with workers. And then you have public health authorities through their daily briefing and through the news media Communicating with workers. And they just don't know what to do. They're they're really confused about what to do. Many of them and I know this is something. Rachel talked about this breakdown in Communication. Nobody was able to get through to. Hr or production support which is a different version of HR at cargill. Nobody was able to get through even barely to the front desk. There were so many phone calls coming in. They were very understaffed. Another thing I want to ask you about is that we talked before about how there are foreign workers. Vulnerable workers in these plants and I know. The company and provincial officials have also talked about the living conditions of many of the workers and how this have contributed to the outbreak as it grew. And can you talk to me a little bit about that right so After it was sort of confirmed publicly that there was an outbreak at cargill. There was obviously a lot of questions of the chief medical officer. Dr Dena hinshaw. How could this happen? What was being done and she answered a question. That basically turned into a little bit of a controversy really because she you started talking about how Some of the ways that some of these workers live had contributed to the spread and that is like carpooling to work. Not just looking at the plant itself but looking at how do people get back and forth to work thinking about households and there's households where people simply don't have the space to self isolate if they're a case or if they're close contact and needing to provide supports to those people you know multi family households you know. I think she was just trying to explain why it might have spread. What the exterior factors are biting really came across many of the folks at cargill who work in cargo as having blamed the workers. And you have to remember that. These people are feeling Quite a stigma to begin with You know they're going into the grocery store and people are afraid of them sometimes. They're being asked to not come into places particularly visible minorities who who work at cargill were. Were feeling that because they were the most easily identifiable as cargo workers Cesar Callous. Has He's been hearing a lot from his community about this. He's Filipino Calgarians and a volunteer with Philippines. Emergency Response Taskforce Filipinos. Have a coach or called Bayani Hon which is being heroes to each other and so we see that a lot many Filipinos are volunteering to give care packages. So that's my appeal to leadership is let's let's unite let's collaborate. Let's not divide because finger-pointing health so there was a real concern that they were. You know being blamed for this. I think that didn't start out as as a an intention to blame but it was. Certainly it was certainly felt that way by the by the community and You know they`re. They're anxious upset to begin with so that didn't help Certainly at least an unintended consequences must be so difficult. All these people who are trying to make ends meet or trying to put food on the table for their families and are having to make these sort of risk assessments. Just sounds.

"Wrong. Workers Return to the cargo meat. Plant this week after. It became the site of not just candidates but the largest single corona virus outbreak in North America. Which is really saying something because there have been some huge outbreaks in the. Us meat packing plants as well over. Fifteen hundred cases have been linked to the cargill plant with nine hundred and forty nine employees testing positive. There have also been two deaths a few weeks ago.

"Thanks for listening is a really strange scene. On Capitol Hill. This morning there were essentially back to back. Press Conferences says from House Democratic leadership and the first one was we are impeaching the president who is just devilishly corrupt and boundlessly lawless and represents a threat to the very foundation of self government. It was first part the second was also we were going to vote on impasse. The number one thing. That president wants the House Democratic Congress to do which is the revised version of NAFTA. Uh the two press conferences were whiplash inducing in many respects. We'll get into that. But on the substance there are two things to think about one. Is that this new agreement is he's not that different from the original North American Free Trade Agreement among the US Mexico and Cannon Fac the text of the new agreement started off with Nafta and made some changes at the margins which is why many call it Nafta two point Oh and second of all the version that Donald trump his administration negotiated and the version. That's going to be voted on by the House. Else has some significant concessions to the concerns of Democrats including enforceability the provision particularly Labor provisions requirements. Around how much of the car needs to be made. In North America to avoid tariffs increased access to Canadian dairy market for American farmers. And a big win for progressive forces. Were lobbying on this taking out exclusivity for big Pharma on a certain class of drugs. which would have raised consumer prices for everyone? So there are legitimately things Democrats can say. They won MM concessions on that. made the deal better but the broader question to my mind is can you imagine Republicans and Hillary Clinton Administration Impeaching Hillary Clinton and also at the on the same day senator saying they're going to vote for big trade deal that Hillary Clinton negotiated. Does this make sense to do with this moment substantively politically. We're going to debate that question next. You.

"Attorney. General William Bar has shown himself time and time again to be zealous. Partisan utterly willing to compromise the perception of independence and integrity the Department of Justice on behalf of President Donald Trump and today. He gave a really in many respects shocking interview to justice correspondent Pete Williams. We're GONNA play that but before four playing part of that interview. It's really important. I think to reestablish the facts of what happened in two thousand sixteen. That year was a weird election. In many ways might recall one of the weirdest aspects of that election was that there were active. FBI investigations involving both of the major party candidates right there was one into into Hillary. Clinton you remember that about her use of private e mail and whether that use of emails contained classified information and the that broke the law at the same time There was a counterintelligence investigation into the campaign of Donald Trump and it's contact with Russians connected to officials in the government a government that we knew who back there in two thousand sixteen was actively attacking me election on trump's behalf. Now that is a sticky situation for the F. B.. I think it's fair to say and there's very very real danger under those circumstances that you have the FBI essentially going rogue and using its investigative powers to essentially put a thumb on the scale of the election for one candidate and that did happen to one of the two candidates. Hillary Clinton it happened when then. FBI Director James Comey Tell me define all justice department guidelines just freelanced and went out and criticized Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information while at the same time saying that quote no reasonable prosecutor Underwood anti-clinton over emails. But then most consequentially. It happened again a second time when Komi announce the FBI was reopening investigation. Asian Hillary Clinton's emails eleven days before the election and action that multiple people whose job it is to look at the data say was decisive in tipping the election from Hillary the Clinton Donald Trump now the same time during that campaign. There is also the counterintelligence investigation into the campaign. Don Trump people associated with that campaign the the existence of which did not leak in fact the one time that it kind of surfaced in the press there was reporting on it was this infamous New York Times investigating instigating Donald Trump Comma. FBI No clear link to Russia spoke to reporters that article. We don't know who they are. Gave trump a clean bill of health in the midst of the election even though we were later to find out for for instance his son Don. You're actively welcomed help from the Russians tied to the Putin government in defeating Hillary Clinton. Okay so that's what happened in two thousand sixteen today attorney generally embarrassed selling story that literally the reverse happened. I think probably from civil liberty standpoint. The greatest danger to our free system is that the incumbent I've been government. Use the apparatus of the state principally the law enforcement agencies in the intelligence agencies both to spy on political opponents but also to use them in a way that could affect the outcome of the election. As far as I'm aware this is the first time in history that this has been done to a presidential attention campaign the use of these counterintelligence techniques against a presidential campaign there has to be some basis before we use these very potent powers in our core first amendment activity and here. I felt. This was very flimsy. There's a curl of appoint here you in the abstract bars. Correct if President Obama had ordered the FBI to open an investigation and then use the existence of that investigation to tip the scales. Hillary Clinton Clinton that would be wildly wrong and dangerous and a threat to democracy. But we know that is not what happened. Thanks to the newly released inspector. General's report the white. The House had no idea the investigation was going on be the found no political bias against Donald Trump. The Russia probe see we do. The whole thing didn't leak because it didn't leak because because we were there watching it now. Attorney General is doing the Donald Trump thing which is no puppet no puppet. You're the puppet to try to get his way out of the situation. And this is the man Dan Right now who holds in his hands investigative power over American citizens. Everyone of you watching. It is chilling joining me now in the profound implications of all this this Adam serve our staff writer for the Atlantic wrote about this in his piece today the Russia hoax a hoax and Michelle Goldberg New York Times columnist and MSNBC political analysts. I there is a kind of crazy making quality to watching someone in bars position. Take up the kind of trump TV. Donald trump no puppet. You're the puppet line of light up his down the reverse of what is true is true. And he says he's every bit as much of a liar and a propagandist as Donald Trump. He just does it in this kind of software ethic bureaucratic voice choice instead of Donald Trump's ranting showman voice but it doesn't change utter insanity of much of what he's saying the other thing that is quite like Donald Trump is that in that clip clip. You just played he was actually describing something very much akin to what Donald Trump has tried to do in Ukraine. What piece for right? And so what. So what he's done this before. It's always kind of accused your enemies of whatever you're doing so that so that people out there say oh well that's both sides are saying the same thing who can tell and after the crazy making point I mean so much of our dystopia. Fiction is not really about gulags. It's not really about torture. It's about the deranged denial of truth. Right it's not just we're well right. It's also Fahrenheit to one and all the sort of Russian literature communism right. It's all about kind of what happens to a person's psyche under the bombardment of lies allies and it. It's kind of psychic tax. That's being exacted on the American people who have to Wade through the midst truth and propaganda and of their purported leaders to figure out what's going on and that's that's exactly what the title of your column was about today. Yeah I mean it's really extraordinary to hear Bill Bar Explain why Congress is impeaching Donald Trump even using those action rock Obama. But look I mean the point of this the point join of the the Russia hoax narrative which is completely disproven by the report which showed there was no political motive for the beginning of the investigation into Donald. Trump is to exhaust people. Were trying to figure out what the truth is. It's to make them throw up their hands and say well. I can't figure it out everybody's yelling. I don't know what's happening so it's probably not not that important. Yeah I WANNA be clear her like I don't trust necessarily unfaithful like the FBI to be with the power they have. They have tremendous power. I I think the report is an important review like there should be some accountability for that. But now you've got the situation in which he he must have known. The report wouldn't produce the outcome you want. And so now he has his handpicked guy running his own investigation despite the fact that statutorily. It's to the judge. This is what he says about the timing about this. S. about the the the or at least about John Durham investigation and how he can sort of go. Further the idea take a lesson. Durham is not limited to the FDR. He can talk to other agencies He can compel people to testify so someone like someone like Durham can compel testimony. He can talk to a whole range of people private parties fallen governments and so forth. And I think that is the point at which a decision has to be made about motivations. So he's going to supplant the report with his report which says it's GonNa come out in the summer of twenty twenty so the idea and he's he's he's already kind of telegraphed what he expects the findings of this report to be we know from the way bard described the mullahs report before we actually got to see the Miller. report art that he is completely unbound by Ebi. Reliance on the on the factual record. So he's basically telling us kind of rubbing our faces in the fact that he's going to put out this political hit job exonerating not just exonerating donald trump but kind of this political hit job on the basis of the investigation into Donald Trump suggesting that this political hitch up suggesting that the Russia hoax is somehow real thing just in time for the twenty two thousand election and you've written a lot about how trump and bar and other share the similar attitude towards due process civil liberties in protections depending on who is being protected and who is being prosecuted. Yeah yeah well. It's really rather extraordinary after bar said last week that communities who criticized law enforcement can't count on their protection. Is those sworn officers of the law. Aw enforcers who if they don't get their protection money. They can't do their jobs but obviously bar in the president himself criticize as law enforcement all the time and don't expect to be denied its protection and at the core of that is really a belief that bar and trump have that some American citizens have the full rights of being American citizens and other Americans simply do not and that is the both the core of trump is in the core of bars legal theory of running the the Justice Department which is a tragic irony given the origin of the Justice Department in the aftermath of the civil war which was to protect those new Americans who had recently been emancipated. It's a disgrace grace. It's it it was created to stop the clan from exercising terrorism over those Newly enfranchised Americans wanted to her Express their democratic and First Amendment rights the First Amendment that Mr Bar was talking about that interview Adam Server and Michelle Goldberg. Thank you both. Thank you also happening today day. President trump hosts Russian Foreign Minister.

"Evening from New York. I'm Chris Hayes. We now know the charges. The House Democrats plan to bring against the president of the United States this morning speaker. Nancy Pelosi and six House Committee chairs presented to articles of impeachment today. Not Merican people today in service to our duty to the constitution and to our country. The House Committee on the judiciary is introducing introducing two articles of impeachment charging the President of the United States Donald J trump with committing high crimes and misdemeanors. The first article is four abuse of power. It is an impeachable offense for the president to exercise the powers of his is public office to obtain improper personal benefit while ignoring or injuring the national interest when he was caught caught when the house investigated and opened an impeachment inquiry president trump engaged in unprecedented categorical and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry this gives rise to the second article of impeachment for obstruction of Congress. The actual articles of impeachment are long just nine pages of text and they lay out in very clear terms that the president abused power of his office and they did everything in his power to cover it up quote. Oh using the powers of his high office president. Trump's solicited the interference of a foreign government Ukraine in the twenty twenty United States presidential election and did so through a scheme game or course of conduct that included soliciting the government Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection harm. You election prospects of a political opponent and influence the two thousand twenty United States presidential election to his advantage articles. Also explain how trump exerted pressure on the Ukrainian president by withholding both three hundred ninety one million dollars military assistance and a White House meeting. That would show US support for Ukraine as it remains under literal attack from Russia articles. move onto the next charge the cover of quote without lawful cause were excuse. President trump directed executive branch agencies offices and officials not to comply with those subpoenas in the history of the republic. No president has ever ordered the complete defines of an impeachment inquiry or sought to obstruct impede so comprehensively the ability of the House of Representatives to investigate high crimes and misdemeanors they conclude with a recommendation. President trump by conduct has demonstrated that he will remain a the threat to the constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible self governance and the rule of law president trump thus warrants impeachment and trial wild removed from office and disqualification to hold enjoy any office of honor trustor Prophet on the United States. Now those charges articulate the president's fundamental mental misdoings in this matter he solicited interference from a foreign country when he got caught he tried to cover it up. He's stonewalled Congress unconstitutionally notably. There are only two articles impeachment now. We saw testimony judiciary committee's hearing last week. Invoking the concepts and words of bribery and extortion. Which I believe are both fair and accurate characterizations is the presence conduct? Those words are not applied to trump in these articles. They're more general in some ways less legalistic which is simply. The president abused his power. He's the listener foreign country to interfere in our elections and then he tried to cover it up and what trump is specifically charged with now sets the standard. If these are past the committee in the House the trial the charges will frame the narrative and ultimately any votes in the Senate. Judiciary Committee will begin discussing the articles tomorrow night once they are passed out of committee which everyone expects accent. Pass out of the house which is also expected and when the trial gets to the Senate those will be the two charges. He is very likely to be tried. On the allow interestingly enough left minimal wiggle room on the facts establishing say beyond a reasonable doubt quid pro quo extortion bribery. All of which I think are obviously obviously there and appropriate but they are more difficult cases to make on the facts and the question of whether he abused his power as foreign interference which was clear from the moment moment. The White House released the notes presents now infamous phone call until I twenty fifth with Ukrainian President Zelinski. I would like you to do as a favor. Though because our country's been through locked Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole Ukraine situation. They say crowd strike. I guess you have one of your wealthy people. The server they they say Ukraine has it the other thing. There's a lot of talk about Biden's son that Biden. Stop the prosecution. A lot of people WANNA find out about that so whenever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Eight Biden winner a bragging. They stopped the prosecution. So if you can look into it sounds horrible to me. The stakes are very high for whether this is acceptable behavior in an idea. The Senate does not convict him on the obstruction charge for instance and basically says he's fine dude nor a congressional subpoena full stop to order all agencies of government not to comply may essentially end up vacating their enforceability in the future. The narrow articles makes the stakes as clear as possible. The Senate will likely police is what the president any president is going to be permitted to do or not do going forward joining me. Now is one of the members of the House Judiciary Committee which drafted these articles of impeachment against the President and will vote on them this week. Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin of Maryland Congressman. There's reporting today that indicates that there was the consideration of a third article impeachment for obstruction of justice pertaining to the president's actions particularly as included in the report. Is that true. And did you favor such articles. Well I.

"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host chrome today. North America's lost World Sir Arthur CONAN doyle had most of the description correct for a lost world. He was just on the wrong continent. If you read the loss world by conon doyle you you know about the dinosaurs primitive tribes at fought and the jungles. We're all consuming of course there was the expedition Professor Challenger reporter in a big game game. Hunter Doyle came up with all this at a time when explorer Percy Fawcett works flooring the Amazon searching for the lost city of Z but what if I told you that there is a place where a tribe of primitive Indians fought and at least one dinosaur roamed along with a prehistoric bear dog doug a location not touched by the last great ice age a place with high cliffs a river that no one has ever navigated fully early and a waterfall twice the height of Niagara Falls but this so-called loss world is in North America aside from the jungle goal nearly everything in doyle's loss world exists or exists today. That's right today. The dinosaur was the woolly mammoth than the bear dog was Sua. The mammoth was present in this hidden place as the Romans were building the coliseum bone soup both the mammoth and the Wahiawa are present in the valley to this day two tribes occupied the valley the Naja were violent and rumored to be cannibalistic they lived high up upon the plateaus and in caves the DNA were resided near the river and were finally driven out by the constant Naja raiding parties between tweet nine hundred ninety five and nineteen fifty-six more than one hundred miners and explorers either vanished or their bodies were discovered minus their heads today the DNA live outside the valley and the Naja simply vanished the valley referred to as Deadman's Bali or headless valley is the the Hani Hani was early on considered a shortcut to the Alaska gold rush of the Yukon in one thousand nine hundred five that McCloy brothers ventured up the nominee in search of gold and apparently found it when they didn't show up before winter set in a third younger brother went in search search and this spring and found their bodies tied upside down and trees missing their hits over the next fifty years numerous individuals entered the valley some looking for gold that was rumored to have been found by the McCloy brothers other simply to explore some never seen again and others were found by their camp or cabin dead and missing their heads.

It's one hundred twenty miles long six miles wide and in some places a half a mile thick ice fields are created at high elevations. Were it's too cold to rain but as snowfall accumulates over time it gets compacted under new layers of snow and gradually turns to solid ice ice that will eventually be the source of glaciers. It can be hard to see from above by the ice in this giant bowl is actually flowing out into valleys between the surrounding mountains as glaciers. Uh the bagley is a giant in the world of ice so it's not surprising that the glaciers at spawns giants to in one of them is the largest and longest glacier in the world the bearing at its mouth this one glacier is ten miles miles wide every year it releases six and a half trillion gallons of water into the gulf of alaska.

"Her. Her. How is it internet being used to attract a younger and more diverse crowd? You know, a lot of people look back in the good old days and they say that was such a simpler time. I would much rather live during that time I disagree. I think that's nonsense, I would much rather live to in today's world where we have yes to stow, many things I can speak to someone across the country, or even across the globe, just by setting tweet out. I think that the rise of the internet in especi-, especially social media has helped a lot when it comes to just seeing familiar faces out there. I think that that's one of the most unique parts about all of this. For example, there aren't I don't know if anyone ear knew this, but aren't a lot of black burgers out there just gonna shock there. They're using social media. I can see that there are indeed other Blackbird is out there in states like California or Illinois, or Arizona, and I can start a network with them. And we can become friends, and we can kinda just. Share things that are familiar to us in, in grow, this relationship in grow friendship, in hopefully, reach out to other people who look like we do as well in kind of start a movement, essentially. So I think that being today's world with the rise of the internet and social media is one of the biggest parts about all of this thousand fucking perfect answer. I'm. Over jason. You said that this is Pokemon go. But for real birds. My question there is when I find a bird, can I capture it in a small ball, and then fight other birds you can with it. Definitely do that. Thanks so much for that addition, met that was really. If you if you find a European Starling house barrel. Please captured in a Pok. Mon ball of basketball. Baseball doesn't matter. Capture it as you can do whatever you want with it. You heard here guys. All right. Police pursued. Yeah. So what are some of the best online resources for birding Jason I know I saw something in one of your videos about, like bird list serves like where burgers going online. All right. I don't like this serves. Okay. Okay. List serves to they utilize Email as, as a what they considered to be efficient method of getting information out. So this is the thing if I'm burning in a certain location. Let's say east of this of a city and another bird, who's west of the city. See something really rare in common. I'm gonna find out through Email hours later, I'd much rather find out on Twitter, the moment it happens. So we're starting to move away from list serves in more towards more quicker fishing, methods of communication. So I'm starting to see Twitter accounts pop-up whose sole focus is just to tweet out bird sightings in a certain city. So we're starting to see stuff like that was started seed. Burgers, join a message groups like what's app or group me and they're able to communicate with each? Other much quicker and get information out is well, I think that hide on the frontier of a big boom when it comes to abs- being created specifically for burgers to get information out to one another. That was talking earlier about an app that tracks the migratory patterns of birds based on people's photos of them in different states. So I don't know. There's probably some cool stuff out there that what I think I think I may be mistaken, but I think it was called Ebert or birds. Yeah. And it was like I have Hiebert on my fault. Take the picture, you have is that it was created by a university. Maybe Cornell now. Yes, it is out. Great. I is it? Good. Is this is, is this good science happening in crowd source? I think so. Yes, but I think that so this is what the app is first of all, I think cornell's e bird is the biggest current app out there. The most important as well. In the reason I say that is because it allows you to input data into a global database and Ebert will keep track of all of your data for you. It will compare and contrast it with other people's data at live in the next town over the next state or the next country over you are able to see where birds are at any given point in time anywhere cross the world. And it keeps a one of my favorite features. That keeps a ranking list for you as well. So you can see where you stack up with burgers that are in the same city as you in the same state or in the same country as well. So I love. The competitive aspect of it saw Mabel to see where I rank a currently with everyone. So we've left to hear how this YouTube series came to fruition. Yes. So all right. Of had his Twitter following for some time now. And as I mentioned, consistency is key in part of the reason. Consistency is key is because you never know who's watching so last year March of twenty eighteen the editorial director of topic, which is visual storytelling platform, they reached out to me and said, hey love, which doing hair. Would you like to brainstorm a little bit in work together in the future? So I was like, okay sure let's do it stains information next thing you know, we're on a conference call. And we're just tossing out ideas I came up with this really cool video series that we would record maybe two or three episodes, just showing burning in fresh new light that turned into them. Hiring a director film crew and us going, the central park, two months later in filming the pilot episodes for of North America. So. No kind of media, training know kind of rehearsing or anything. I was just pushed onto this platform this decided to host in the very first scene of episode one, I am walking through this place called sheet meadow in central park, and anyone who's ever been. There knows its place where everyone goes to just chilling. Hang out. They listen to music, a throw frisbees around. They just they chilly sunbathe and they walk a hundred feet out in this field. We'll have these big giant cameras at the edge of the field. And we just need you to turn around and walk back toward us in delivered his monologue. And I'm had okay. But everyone else is going to be looking at me, and they're gonna hear me. So it was it was something that I just had to internally struggle within get over lesson as as performers. I would like to just say that you soared. The first I had to say my favorite part, I wrote this down because I thought it was so adorable is you said something like you know, when you see a bird, you get so excited, there's in this, like you wanna have a party. But you gotta keep the party inside. Side. It's so thank you. So this is how this happens. I'm used to birding, right. So those scenes where the cameras following me around in looking for birds and I don't have to say anything. Those are natural for me 'cause I can do that all day long. But there are certain moments where we are seeing certain birds in hearing certain birds in director, who doesn't amazing job. That's why he gets paid the big bucks. He says, hey tell us how you're feeling right now. When just was like word salad that just came out of me now. It's still going to start using it. I'm keeping my party inside right now. But I'm bailing. Yeah. It's so good. My, my sister tease me about it. She thought it was the most funniest thing that he's ever heard. Also, I love that you refer to peregrine falcons as a sky lambere Guineas. That's what they are. That's where they will be formerly known as moving forward. Skyline Borghini now can start incorporating car puns, and this really opens doors for me. I have a totally different question. Do you have any bird tattoos? I just got one. Yeah. So this is my very first hat to ever actually. Oh, it took about four and a half hours and pretty large one. It's a paragon falcon. Of course, skyline Guinea, this guy Lamborghini. And it's just sitting on my upper show up, upper arm, and, yeah, it costs a lot of money. Did you filmed it, you filled it? That's also okay if you're open to it, I would love for you to join our discord server and drop a photo of your new sky lambere Guinea. Gotcha. No problem. Okay, I'm so excited. Another mother unrelated question. What are I'm just reading something about, like the, you know, about some of the crazy extinct birds that were in this country is that true? You can you tell us about. Like, what are some of the craziest extinct birds that used to be in the US in the US? So we have. All All right. right. So let's start with passenger pigeon right passenger pigeon, which, by the way, pigeon's are really cool birds, a lot of people just think of pigeon than just discount them and just toss into the side and say whatever, pigeon suck hitches are amazing. They are the only birds out there who are able to milk like substance for their chicks. It's called pigeon. Milk comes from their wrote can feed their babies that kind of milky substance. So anyway, passenger pigeons used to be so plentiful in new in North America that older settlers from back in the day, they used to see like what they described as a river of birds that would fly over their heads in darkened the sky sometimes, and we shot and killed them all so that happened. And then there's the myth of the existence of the ivory billed woodpecker as well. That is a bird of the southeastern United States. It was. The largest woodpecker that we had here in the United States. In the reason why it's such a subject of controversy. These days is because there are people out there who claim that they are still seeing this bird around. It's been extinct for over one hundred years, there's no way that they're seeing this bird anymore, but that doesn't stop these ivory. Billed truth IRS from claiming that there's this seeing the bird, man. There's a big online truth or community. I was actually passed a business card at a recent bird convention from someone out there, who said, hey, man, you wanna see a real bird, come talk to us, and he passed the car that I looked at it, and I just laughed because I thought he was kidding. And he's no, man. I'm serious. I have recordings and get out of here their truth for everything in their trolls for everything. So I was just curious like in the YouTube comments on your series or you're getting some crazy responses. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean it's inevitable. All right. So in one of the first videos, we did a kind of like a mini episode tutorial on how to use Benach years. This was shot may of last year since that point in time, I have been introduced to this, what we think of as a luxury brand of Benach, yours who've decided to gift me with a pair of their spiff -i really expensive Benach years, that I would never been able to afford, otherwise. So now I. Those everywhere that I go and the old binoculars I had were Nikon's and during that mini episode on teaching people, how to use Benach goes on holding my Nikon's, and as one person in the YouTube section who just commented to word, Nikon suck. People who are claiming that we're misidentifying some of the birds in, in the videos. And then you have the group of people who decided that they wanted to have these stupid things to say in one of our most recent videos, we did a video with Molly atoms of the feminist bird club. And of course, that brought up all of the trolls talking about why there needs to be feminist bird club in first place in this one guy was like a well, since he so inclusive. I shop at his bird, walk with make America great again, hat Ourika. Yeah. It's, it's really good that my brother and I may have someone who I'm so close with, like my brother who are Mabel to share these stories with, because my brother is so chill. So mild-mannered so agreeable with he's the good guy out of the bunch, and I'm still have a little Bronx in me. So when people say stuff like that, I'm lucky, I have. To really fight back the urge to comment in say y'all go. Let's do it comments like so it's difficult to stay you know, Jason your past this level. Now, you'll have to resort to that kind of stuff. I think the way you deal with, there could be affected, though, like taking into blows immediately. They would down either nor it or fight them. Nothing. Love that. That's your attitude. But Jason don't crow there. Going to be a waste of your time. Just like me. Just have a quick question for you. My daughter is six and she is recently like obsessed with birds in the neighborhood in the yard. And my question for you is like, what sort of kid-friendly gear apps projects, should we be equipping her with because she's, she's all aboard the bird train here. Yes. There's actually a lot of really cool things that you can use to kind of, cultivate that obsession from the app perspective. There's Audubon birds also raptor. ID is well, both of those free apps. Then you have ones that cost little bit of money like Sibley volume to that one is about twenty bucks those apps. Take you inside the world of these birds is shows you their range, maps, it actually plays different songs in 'cause back for you, so you can learn them, the raptor app, actually shows you video of the different hawks in falcons flying around you. You can get a better idea of how they look when their in flight, all of those apps, I know I dove into them when I first started to bird, and I can see kids diving into them in loving listening to the different sounds at these birds make as well. In addition to that, there are young or youth birding groups that exist in different parts of the country. What city D living we're based in New York, but in the suburbs. So yeah, yeah, I'm pretty sure there's a New York young burgers club. I just did an episode with the Ohio young burgers club in there of really cool group of younger burgers, who are trying to ushering, the next generation of burgers, they exist from eighteen years old all the way down to about eleven years old. And then they have younger kids are even younger than that. They're kind of a grooming. I guess you can say is so that they become his in finally, this sense of community as they get older as well..

"north america" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"Preexisting cultures would have been just fine without European intervention and all the the disease and degradation that had brought along with it. So if this myth of empty North America is indeed false. What do we know about it? Like, what are the facts? Oh, sure. I mean prior to any Europeans showing up on North American land. There were one hundred and twelve million people already living somewhere on the continent. And, you know, lower estimates do range to as little as eight million people from that one hundred twelve million. So there is a range because it's not known the exact number of people. There's no census. There's no any way of telling how many different peoples you, can you can tell them any different. Well, at least close to however, many different cultures essentially exist just from finding things, but knowing the exact number of people is very very difficult. Right. Right, right. The one thing we do know is that there were millions of people. Yes. And they weren't all just sorta strolling around. So as many as one hundred twelve million people in fourteen ninety two but by sixteen fifty that population already plummeted to less than six million the people living at the height of pre European history. Had extensive trade networks, they have rich cultural lives, they had cities they had internal and external warfare conflicts cooperation all the things that Europe was doing and they had dense urban areas, which is something that may surprise a lot of people listening, right? And normally when you think of pre-run populations, we think of people living, a perhaps nomadic existence in some areas of the continent, we think of complex cave dwellings perhaps. But we don't we don't think of. A a London. You know, we don't think of Berlin at least. Yeah. An early version of that with structures and highly organized society existing within these structures. So we would like to introduce you to one of the largest known pre European cities in the on the continent at the time a place called Cahokia so in its prime about four centuries before our boy Colombo stumbled onto the western hemisphere walked away, and then decided to come back and dig a little deeper Cahokia was a prosperous pre American city with a population very similar to London. Archaeological data showed that agricultural settlements. First appeared in the area around four hundred eighty and then in ten fifty you had a boom population boom at coke, which became a major political and cultural center with the population booming into the tens of thousands. Yeah. And you know when When you. you think about something like this. It's hard to imagine that it could exist anywhere near current civilization. Right. Oh that must be out in the middle of nowhere somewhere. Right. Because we would know all about that. We would people in the United States would travel there to explore the the remains or something right? Sure. But no if it was located very close to present day, Saint Louis. Yeah. It's about eight miles out of Saint Louis. It's located in southern Illinois. This was by all measures that we can find the largest North American city north of Mexico at the time. It had been built by a group of people known as the mississippians. These were native people who occupied a large swath of the present day southeastern US from the Mississippi River to the shores of the Atlantic. This city go Kia was sophisticated. It was Cozma politics. But today, it's his. History is virtually unknown not to just most of the current US residents. But even to people who live in the area present day residents of Illinois, Illinois, Ziems illinois's, Enes. I hope that's not Illinois. Oh, not worth it. Just throw us in the trash. It's this is one of those stories that was bypassed in favor of that dominant narrative that we see reinforced in literature, we see reinforced in. In cinema. Yeah. Right. And it's the idea that the people who lived here before Europeans ever arrived were somehow less learned which is clearly not the case. And there's a guy named Thomas. Emerson a professor of anthropology at the university of Illinois who had an interesting, quote a lot of the world..
