And maybe even more broadly the role of the us government In general going forward in haiti will the one of the things. That's really important in all of this. Is that several of the people who have been implicated and warren custody are actually united states citizens. They live in south florida. So we know that last week there was a number of search warrants that were executed on those people's we know i know that the first lady was interviewed by the fbi yourself You know they have a sort of standard providing assistance and we will neither confirm nor deny. You don't have to confirmative tonight. You turn on the local news and there they were in these people's houses so the big question here is you have these people in south florida. Who were having like committee meetings about what to do. If the government fell. What kind of interim government could be held and so. Those meetings are being characterized by the police as murder-plotting meetings. If that's the case then you have crimes that were committed in the united states. And then you're going to see the fbi's role probably increase. France's robocalls is a national and foreign correspondent for the new york. Times francis.

"Because they're not worried about making movies or mega making a bottom line. And when you look at you know why there's a bunch of sequels because of ip it's simply because of ip. It's because like we understand that we can sell that. I already know that you know it's coca-cola's the most famous brand that you can see around the world. I remember being in like in the in a fucking village outside of dakar in northern africa and seeing coca cola logo. Mike faulk yudo. So i think this idea that like. I'm not here to bang the drum. Like it's we're running out of ideas it really is. The mandate is different. The mandate studios is to be run by people. Cave gave a shit. And now it's and when you gotta hit you had a hit and now it's like these are things to be made to have profit. Yeah and then my friend. And i were talking about space jam to this weekend. He made a point of like correcting himself. Not calling it. A warner brothers film. But then like time warner which is on by and he just started calling it an. At and t. film Because it is at at the end of the day you're in. At and t. product. And i am if those films are able to still make money and make room for other good films. I'm not going to hate them. Just for existing. But i'm hoping to figure out ways that they can be encouraged to at least make better ones. You know well. Yeah but that's why you have eight twenty four. That's what you have blood house. That's why you have all these you know you have net flicks you. Have you know but even netflix fall into that. Multinational thing But it's like that's what you have these smaller studios what's fester money. They can't anti anthem. Well i guess the question is like but they can make a movie that makes a lot of money. Yeah right yeah. I guess. I guess but as a blockbuster i guess to me a blockbuster is to who is seen it versus. How much money was spent on it. Like yes i get like. Oh that's a big blockbuster. If you're go. See that in the theater but i would say i would. If you were to ask me. I would rather be in the movie that everyone loves and that they saw verses the movie that had the biggest budget behind it no totally. But i think in toronto that we're talking about that's part of the reason why we're talking about men in black and not big leading huge profit maker but you don't really call that a blockbuster right yeah so i guess you yeah. Obviously we really went down the rabbit hole. Everything is gay because this movie is actually very interesting about where sequels are going in and we can as we kind of move around. I think we're going to you know this. is i. think a very nice a bookend too drastic park and where the future goes me. We can end the series on a more modern sequel. But weren't you stuck in his watch that for all of the padding on the back marvel movies do about diversifying their characters and like. Oh god now we are able to have like anthony. Mackie play captain. America here is a movie from eighteen. Ninety seven where the movie ends with. Like the only white guy retiring and the franchise at the end of this at least pretending to be taken over by linda fiorentino and will smith by a woman and by a black yeah thumbs.

Neural architectures of neurogenesis enhancing the connectivity in the neo cortex and that sort of thing and that was not known at the time terrence wrote the book what was also not known was anything about epa genetics and epigenetics provides an evolutionary mechanism by which these changes in neural architecture. Could be propagated through generations. If you look at the environment that we now know from paleo climatic data that sort of thing. Northern africa was a wet plates couple of million years ago and there was seasonal rainfall. They were cattle there.

It's not about you know. Tasting notes and tannin's matt electic fermentation micro oxygenation and that kind of thing. It's about place and people and stories and just getting to enjoy a variety of clean wyans learning about them.

Get it's great is designed to be thrown young even three years old but as you'll hear white burgundy can get very old and very special so this could be a fantastic introduction to one of the great wines of the planet ever. Ray thank you so much for coming on the podcast and telling us all about your now. I'm going to say this with great excitement. White burgundy backing taste better. I wish i knew better.

The american drinkers is thinking of when they think of chardonnay has political chattan is quite different to activate the binds at different of this one is twenty. Eighteen is two years old.

One now is a one now up funds that they out all possible davita low the shadow the lights of time to go down taken off weight. Well you needn't you look in just great. Well you needn't you said bad. Well you needn't it's now it's ova so afro asiatic you've got semitic berber egyptian. Your should've your chadwick and not your modig. Well what is afro asiatic. These languages are also different. What is the character of an afro asiatic language if say russian is a very typical indo european language. If that's the pattern what's the afro asiatic pattern. And it's hard to say because this language family may have arisen proto afro. asiatic may have been spoken as long ago as sixteen thousand years ago. It was certainly at least ten thousand. So there's been an awful lot of divergence between these sub families. There are many people who think that beyond about ten thousand years. You really can't see any kind of relationships at all that is clearly to conservative but still after sixteen thousand years. There might not be much of a single character to all of these languages. Maybe it's not try continental routes but it's thought that possibly proto afro asiatic would have had by continental routes and so it would have been like run and ran in english except they all would have been that way the signals faint but just maybe so for example in cosmetic if you trace back to what would have been proto coup schick well then rise is row row and then in a language other than haussa. It's called gizine. The word for two rises row wa okay and then an arabic there is raw and that means to be spacious number kinda stretching it but maybe that's related to rising up into the sky or something like that and then there's a room and that means termite mound. Maybe that means rise because the mounds will see how forced it is automatic is not part of his family. But they're these by continental routes that you can tentatively reconstruct and so maybe being afro asiatic is being kind of cre- what happened in semitic because you can see that pattern and a great many of the languages then more likely it's the pronouns. All of these languages have evidence of a certain kind of pronoun pattern. That couldn't be an accident basically. You is always to something and then you have he as something. So that's the way it is an arabic. That's the way it is in One of the berber languages called bile like the and then an haussa he is year but then you is not something with two but she is took and that's exactly the way. It is in arabic as well. These things couldn't be accidents and so something along those lines but what we do know. Is that if you look at the shapes of words in general you can tell that unless it's a motic afro asiatic is real thing and that's what happens up on the top of africa and also in a bit of land over east of the red sea and i'm gonna go out on blossom dearie who. I don't think i've played on this show and i should have. And this is her doing one of her signature..

"It with with each now that you learn so it's not that every single now does it differently. It's almost harder than that. In that you have to learn twenty different ways of forming the plural. And of course if you speak the language natively you don't even think it but boys that hard if you approach it after the age of about one and a half literally about fifteen and that means that teaches the lesson the further away you get from native digital house speaking territory the more. It's being just used as a tool as a lingua franca the easier it gets there many easier kinds of haussa with you know even some of the sounds that give you a little bit of a challenge. They start fading away. These forms of the plural. All of it gets much easier. And you've only got two or three ways of forming it or maybe just one. That's why helias like that. The further you get from the little tiny island place. That's why healy was originally spoken. The easier the language while healy is the easiest of the languages of its kind. Because it's been used by adults who end up shaving it down. Fula is like that. Fula is a language of west africa. If you know somebody who speaks it if they speak real fuller. They're speaking literally one of the most complex languages on the planet earth but as you get away from indigenous fula territory. They're easier full lingua franca. 's take it lighter and less. They're formerly taught like russian. So no you're not gonna see simpler. Russians accept spoken on the fly by people. Orly among the many many many many people who have learned rush non natively lee. Because that's been relatively late in the game taught in school but if you're talking about context where literacy has been less uniform then you end up having this tendency which is that languages.

Finally we have the six sub family of afro asiatic. Except you know. It probably isn't but i'm just going to throw it in here in case it turns out that it is that's a family called omahodic and once again with automatic. We haven't heard of any of the guages but we're talking about languages of ethiopia and thereabouts. That aren't he. theo. Semitic and omahodic is interesting. Because there's been a lumping tendency in how african families are worked out and that's because you have to start somewhere and it is scientific to look for patterns and because of where the amok languages are spoken and then. I'm sure that your was well. They're black and they're living on the land. And it's in this afro asiatic cameo semitic area so amata must be just like them. So america must be part of afro asiatic because it's nothing like that other big family in africa niger-congo but then when you actually look the languages they're not really much anything so for example. One of them is called bench. Y- bench and bench spoken in a remote part of ethiopia. Bench has six tones. Six beautiful tones. You can whistle. There's whistled bench and you can really get your meeting across because it has six tones and then benches just crazy. I'd say that with great affection but the grammatical rules if you say Go it's Okay you wanna say he went you say hung so all of that Go went good. He will go home some suicide fat magin that as how your verbs work. And that's how they all were zero and closer and you start thinking exactly how is this afro asiatic and so for example the word for dog if you look at all of the omagh languages and trace back kind of like we're always talking about that language spoken on the steps of ukraine and that's proto indo european proto omahodic for dog would be become one of the languages is called ganga in the word for dog is is okay so khan and then somebody looks at say keller of in hebrew and the fact that in semitic it's generally thought that the original word dog would have been something like cola bull so keller culebra now the bull is thought maybe to have been an animal suffix and that means that the original root for dog is code. And so it's con- in a model and in semitic and so that means that these languages must be related. Isn't that a little forced. Because frankly in proto indo european on the steps of ukraine at a certain point the word for dog would have been qualm. Isn't that more like khan than cola. And if you look at the case for omahodic the attic most of it is like that and all of it work just as well with proto indo european. These things seemed to be random and as such. It's not a surprise that recently it's been found that omahodic language speakers jeans don't match up with other afro asiatic speaking peoples jeans. It doesn't look like oh motic really is a member of the family at all and what that means is that ahmad ick is just a language family all by itself. It probably used to be a much bigger one. That's like bask in europe. There's lots of evidence that bassey languages were spread much more widely in europe than they are now but now it's just down to this one language that straddles france and spain. Well apparently is a remnant of what was actually a language family of its own and more and more of the sort of things being discovered in africa. Africa is where humanity started. It's therefore where language started and it means. Language has been there the longest and so we expect there to be an extreme diversity of language families there and it's well known that they are at least four depending on how you count it being smarter about at six but even that vastly undercounts it. It's becoming clear. There are all sorts of language families that you see evidence of in africa often is just one remaining language. But you're talking about a whole story. It's a crazy quilt. Amok is almost certainly a good example of that in any case. I want to play you. Something where i'll bet you didn't know it had words and i think a lot of us. Have you know had red wine and maybe some wanna and listen to that classic thelonious monk album and there's the song well you needn't that wonderful title. Well you needn't well. Did you know that this has words. This is carmen mcrae singing in nineteen ninety. This is delightful. it sweet. well you need. You say you won't.

So you've got your semitic you've got your berber. You've got your egyptian. Well what else. Another sub family is schick. And now we're getting into the sub families where it's kind of hard to know where to grab on because we're talking about languages that most of us who are not of the region have no reason to know anything about but cou siddiq is a great many languages that are spoken in east africa. The one that many of us have probably heard of his somali somalian's do not speak a language related to for example swahili or wall off or something like that somalian speak a language that is related in its way to hebrew and arabic. They are all part of the same family. So kushida family exemplified by somali. Somali can teach us a really important lesson and that is the intricacies the fearsome intricacies that languages can indulge in. Even if they aren't written languages somali has been a written language in any real way only for the past several decades but even when it was only spoken language it had poetry that would wind just about anybody so for example. Let's say that you have a line. God has put out their fire and has dampened the valor of their heroes. So that's how it goes now the line in this form of somali poetry goes roughly alah pot dob codeine sandra. Hi donna. bado de somalis. I'm sorry tried my best. I'm going to read the line again. So ella dub khodyo sanda. Hi donna but door. Da okay. what in the world is that. Well the thing is it's very intricate because it's based on these really nasty fascinating rules about how the poetry has to go so for one thing. Each line has to be in four parts and each part has five beats now. You can combine to beats into one long beat and so that means that often the five beats are kind of a long a long and then a short. So that's like two to one you can do all sorts of combinations of those but it has to come out to five so for example when i say he la bought dob. Oh those are three words. But i is lot. That's too that's too and then dub right there that's the first of the four parts because it's five and so he la by up and then dub khodyo is a word but in the middle of the word you start another one of these four parts and dub kodia will stop is the fifth beat of the first part. Then you start a second part and it's cold deal sun and the sun is another word but the co deals on is kind of like one two three four five. That's how it all goes. Then you listen to the whole thing again alah dub cardio sunday. Hi diana dodi here. A lot of dis. The idea in this poetry is that you use a particular sound a lot but not next to each other. You can't go you know. Something like bitty booby baby or something like that you have to separate them so alaba dob code deal on high naba. Daud the you have to have that sound. But you can't have the sounds right next to each other. You have to have a long vowel least inbetween. And that's how this form of somali. Poetry work is oral. this was passed down. It was almost like a word game but beautiful. That is one of many stories that you can tell from the coup schick languages so whenever you meet somebody who is from somalia and they speak somali. They are somebody who is using a language where this was and sometimes still is done. Then there's another sub family other sub family is called chadwick. Chadwick is one hundred and fifty languages that basically we've never heard of their spoken in these air. Nigeria and chad big family a very complicated languages and yet really if we've heard of one of them it's haussa other than that. All of us will draw a blank on any of them unless we happen to be specialists. But there's haussa hausa is spoken in nigeria and beyond but it's homeland is nigeria. And the thing about how is that. It's one of the big three in nigeria. And it's different if you know a nigerian. Probably in addition to the english that you're communicating with them and they know either yoruba ibo or house depending on the region that they come from yoruba and ibo. From the other big giant family of africa called niger-congo haussa is an afro asiatic language it's from the chadwick sub family of afro asiatic. And so you see that. Nigeria is one of the most linguistically rich places on earth. Three hundred languages spoken in nigeria by some counts and that includes languages from completely different families and a great many of them from both so. That's house and house is a big lingua franca. Despite that most of us might draw blank on it it is very commonly used in that part of africa. All the way down to where ghana is and even all the way down to wear. Cameroon is so we've all heard of swahili. And we probably so. Healy is used in several east african countries here in west africa. Haussa is one of the languages. That's like that and it used to be a language of empire. This was a lingua franca for people speaking countless smaller languages for a very long time and when you zero in on house so the first thing that you find is that the sounds are pretty easy to make of course. It has to be tonal it has to give you that but the sounds are pretty easy to produce but the thing that you run aground upon is that they're twenty different ways of forming the plural. So here in english we you know you tack an s onto something in this language. They're twenty different ways of forming the plural to a large extent. You just kind of have to know which way.

In all states and situations 'nother sub family in afro asiatic egyptian just egypt's in the egyptian language. So you see those hieroglyphics those wonderful things that look like drawings but actually they are encoding the language you are pardoned to think that the language there in coatings arabic. I thought that when i was a kid because people in the regions that you find these hieroglyphs end today speak arabic and you figure arabic has been spoken there since the big bang but no arabic only spread in a laterally fashion and before that in for example egypt there was this other afro asiatic sub family spoken a small one and that's egypt shen language. It's not arabic. It's not hebrews. Berber it is itself and actually that egyptian language because of the richness of the hieroglyphics is actually the longest recorded written language in the world. You have forty five hundred years of egyptian starting with ancient egyptian and it continues today in what is called coptic. Coptic is a liturgical language. But it's a direct descendant of this ancient egypt and you can see written with hieroglyphics forty five hundred years the very first sentence that is recorded in ancient egypt and therefore one of the first recorded sentences and human writing is he has united the two lands for his son. Dual king pederson. We've lost a lot of the context but that is the first sentence that we have of ancient egyptian. And you know there's something about egypt that may seem a little inside baseball but it. Isn't you know that idea that many of you possibly have if you haven't listened to all one hundred thirty one episodes that identify lexicon valley. That languages tend to simplify. You know how there's this idea that is languages move along. They easier and you never stopped to think about how if that were really the case. Why aren't all languages now. Dust you know given how long languages have been spoken. But you're often told that and it's partly because spanish can be argued to have a less complex grammar than latin. Modern english definitely has a less complex grammar. That old english certain languages that you see mostly in europe not to mention semitic languages might give you a sense that languages tend to get easier and then also many linguists thinking. because there's this one article written in nineteen seventy by a man named and it's about egyptian. And what he describes is that egyptian goes through cycles. Where it's really complicated. And then only kinda complicated than really complicated and then only kind of complicated in terms of how many prefixes and suffixes it has but you know memory fades and i certainly understand that. That article has tended to be interpreted even by some specialists saying that egyptian started out like latin and then it became like english and had virtually nothing in terms of the oslo blah blah. Kind of thing and then it went back to being latin and then it went down to nothing. So there's this idea that languages go through this cycle. They've got petticoats and then the languages butt naked and then you've got petticoats then it's back down to bare ethnic naked. That's how language is supposed to go. But no that's not what that article said and it's just one of those things. Think about how they're always new things happening. Even as some things are getting simpler like in english for example hallock as a suffix. I'm a friend's hollick. Somebody might say because they really liked that show or gate. You talk about well. It's dinner gate or it's happy gate this idea. That gate refers to a crisis because of what just happened to be the final syllable of the watergate hotel. A very long time ago those sorts of things they start out feeling like jokes but after a while they really are part of the language hallock and gate or part of english and those things have happened only in the past hundred years things like that are always creeping in even if the difference between say lie and lay falls away. These things happened together egypt. Sharon is said to have given us words like both ebony and ivory no. I'm not gonna play that awful song also oasis. I wanna tell you that cat comes from egyptian. But i'm not convinced there is a word shout in ancient egypt since out and supposedly that became cat. You know to tell you the true. That stupid reminds me of a guy heard on. The subway was probably about fifteen when avatar came out and his take on movie avatar. Which you hadn't seen yet. I hear there's this movie about blue people that stupid a whole movie about blue people. Shout as cad is. That's just stupid. But there was of a broadway musical about cleopatra. And i'm not gonna play anything from that because frankly it wasn't very good but it starred leslie who was one of the best singers is and was one of the best singers who ever appeared on broadway. She frankly did not ever truly get her do because he was black at the wrong time. She would've had much more of a career if she just come along later but one of her shows was called. Hallelujah baby and cast album of it is a joy forever because you get to listen to her singing in colombia's wonderful sonics of the time. This is her singing an interesting ballad called being good isn't good enough and just listen to the way she can be deliberately an eighth tone flat and then rises onto the pitch the technique that she had in hitting a note. This is being good. Isn't good enough. One of my favorite cuts ever is good The be good..

"So you put a ta upfront and attor at the end. So that's a female donkey. So if you are a berber speaker the feminine in that way the tot at the beginning and the tur- at the end and what that means that there's a disjunction between what outsiders often no the berber languages to be called and what. Berber people themselves call them. So for example. One of the berber languages is called. Schill hub. if you're gonna say it in english shila but then in berber you refer to languages in the feminine and so you end up having the ta at the beginning and the two at the end so what happens is you have to say talk schill hot but if you say it over and over there are changes so hot to us is to speakers. Kosh it tosh kit. That's what the languages so it's tasha. His show has in there so tashaun or all of the berber languages together. sometimes or called zeke. You can also use that for one of them. But almasy is becoming the more proper name for berber languages. Linguists often call them that and especially linguists who are of the area so i'ma z. Well what it's called in. Berber is tommasi tommasi. So you see what looks in english like amazon. And you see this. Thomas site which is what it looks like in spelling. You think they're different things. It's really just. Almasy made feminine in a system. Where making something. Feminine is very different from sticking on the end as we're used to and my favorite one of these is one of the berber languages is called bile the way that comes out when you make it feminine. It be like talk bildt or something like that but then you say it over and over over hundreds and thousands of years and all sorts of things happen talk bildt is actually pronounced thump that if instead of tuck it's fat and the is a uviller stop by. You'll stop book. Alveoli stop took veal or stop kerr. Then go a little further back and it's a you've your stop you pronounce it where that you've your is your so talk. Bislett is and then it isn't bile. If it's ver- it's that weird in between bien. V sound that you get frustrated with when you're being taught spanish so talk that and then it isn't bislett. It's back and so instead of two so thuc valley. I love saying that. So that's how you get from bile to what it's actually called when you make it feminine in any case. Berber has its own writing system not arabic. It's got its own and it's used more and more lately. It's called tv enough and it's actually part of why afro asiatic is one of my favorite languages. I have sentiment about afro asiatic because the first foreign language that i ever heard was hebrew. I don't remember if i've told that story on the show. But frankly i've written it and said it in so many places that some of you have probably already heard about me. Hearing the little girl speak hebrew and crying. Because i couldn't understand what she was saying thinking i have to learn hebrew and not realizing with that was a symptom of one probably a career sometime later in my life and to Kind of serious mental illness. That i cared that much and so hebrew. That's rosiak but then the first writing system the first alphabet that i saw other than my own which actually knocked me out in the same way was actually tv enough. So for some reason. I can't reconstruct this. But in my montessori school there are these cards with various alphabets thank god for montessori schools and one of them was far egg it was called and it was these pretty little looked like to me symbols tarek and this car had indicated what the sounds were. Nobody could really tell me what tara was. Except i think one person said africa so i didn't know anything about what burger was but i knew a way there's this other alphabet and so i started quote unquote writing in tarek. It didn't occur to me at the time that it wasn't english that you're supposed to be using in using this alphabet but to this day. Whenever i see tv enough i am suddenly six or seven years old and i think on the one hand of jeffrey nussbaum who used to literally throw his feces across the classroom and they got rid of him. I've mentioned him on the show before. And then also darling. Philip who would give me sardines from his lunch. I have once mentioned him on that. Show do so. Jeffrey philip and tv. Nah nothing about berber. And i mentioned this briefly in the semitic show. Is that often words. Don't have owls so. For example one word for to irritate is with a double. You've your stop. That's actually the word they're no vows in it and it's interesting i was in a cab once and i was listening to somebody talking aspect of appearance. I was thinking maybe this is a person from a certain area of the world. And i thought well it's not hebrew then. I thought it's not arabic because you hear a lot of arabic in new york and this wasn't quite i thought if it sounds kind of like them but it's kind of whispery it seems like it doesn't have enough fouls in a way. I thought i wonder if this person is berber. And damned. if he wasn't and he said oh how did you know. And actually. I got to ask him about something that we have to always be careful with the idea that languages don't have a word for something that says something about the people. I once read about berber. Imbaba are no words for winning and losing so the idea was to depict the berber as people who aren't as obsessed with competition and ranking people as we westerners are and i thought well i don't know anything about whether or not the burgers are into one upping each other not but a language that doesn't have words for win or lose thought that couldn't be true. I mean their children playing gains. And somebody's gonna win. Somebody's gonna lose. They don't have a word for it. So i asked this guy said so. If you're berber. Could you answer me. A question. And i said what is the word in berber for to win and he gave the word. And that's what's the word. I'm barbara to lose and said oh that's boom. There's no question and i said. Is there anything unusual about those words. Those words actually from some other language he had no idea what i meant and then i went a few weeks later and looked in a dictionary. They have words for win and lose. And so you know whatever. Berbers are like as a culture languages have words for winning and losing least. I would assume that they almost always do. And you know as we get to the end of the slate run of lexicon valley. This is going to be my last merman cut. This is ethel merman. This is her singing a song from panama hattie. A coal border score nineteen forty. it came. it went. That's about the way it was supposed to be. This song isn't great. But i love the way her voice sets. This is just near the end of the song. What a wonderful instrument this person had. The song is called. My mother would love you by on. Thank you and you'd win. My mommy from.

Welcome to the program. Thank you very much. Good morning. I guess looking at the map. I can see why migrants would be attracted. There's effectively a land border with Europe. You can walk from Africa into a little bit of Europe. What is happening in that that border in recent days? Well, yeah, felt on doll so the nearby Milica, which is also Spanish territory have always bean flash point for migrants trying to enter European soil. There seems to stepping stepping point to the European mainland. But what has happened has been extremely unusual. I mean, every year last year, there were 2000. 200 people more or less who crossed into certain illegal into this to Spanish enclaves in northern Africa. But in a matter of just 48 hours, we suddenly saw 1000 people swimming jumping, able fences. And even paddling on inflatable boats and reaching Celta on. This is extremely unusual. Let's think that this is the population off 85,000 people in this city.

We began this edition of new sounds with the piece called Solo Kota originally by Theseus outthe African guitarist Guy buttery. And sitar ist Canada Narrow Hari. But as you can hear the artist known as a million things really focused on the vocal tracts of the original. And here a little bit of a guy's thumb piano at the beginning. But then, after that, it's mostly the producers own Elektronik percussion tracks and some kind of Re casting of all the different layers of vocals from the original. There's a bit more prominent use of the thumb, piano and the other percussion instruments of the original In the third version of this peace that will be getting two towards the end of the show. So stay with us for that. Right now, though, Let's move on to some music from Thie, guitarist and composer named Bambino. He is a Tuareg musician from the country of In a sort of central Northern Africa and from an album called Biran will hear a piece called the Wog chagrined at the top of the mountain. What's a little unusual about this is that Bambino has become pretty well known in world music circles as an ace electric guitarist that the electric guitar has become The traditional instrument of of the Tuareg people. But this piece is largely acoustic. And then we're going to stick with the acoustic guitars we head south to Rwanda Central African nation that was Thorn apart by ethnic genocide in 1990 for making this group called the good ones and even more remarkable ensemble there.

What Ruined City Lies Under Tunisia's Waters?

"Episode from our former host Christian Sagar. This one is about the ruins of a lost Roman city off the coast of Northern, Africa and evidence about what led to its loss a. plus a more fishy finding. FEHB rain stuff Christian Sager here archaeologists recently discovered more than fifty acres twenty hector's of Roman ruins off the coast of northeastern. Tunisia. That's a small country on the northern tip of Africa and situated on the Mediterranean Sea the discovery has researchers believing they may have finally found some convincing evidence that the city of Neapolis not to be confused with the Italian city of the same name that Neapolis was wiped out by a natural disaster about a thousand, six hundred and fifty years ago in addition to streets and monuments. Researchers found about one hundred tanks that would have been used to produce a garum that's a fish based fermented condiment commonly consumed in ancient Rome. In an email, how stuff works spoke to Carlos F Norrena associate professor of history at the University of California Berkeley he says that the discovery is important because it lends support to the theory that Tunisia Neapolis was submerged by a soon Nami in the fourth century. That's a useful reminder that environmental catastrophe is not only a phenomenon of the modern world scientists wrote in a twenty thirteen study in the journal Nature that as soon Nami was caused by an earthquake that occurred in three, sixty, five C E in Crete. There's no sure fire way to know the extent of the quake since measuring tools didn't exist at the time, but scientists believe to separate tremors happened in. Succession and the larger one had a magnitude of eight point zero on the Richter scale. The resulting soon Nami destroyed about fifty thousand homes and killed approximately five thousand people in the city of Alexandria Egypt and because the geological fault at the center of the earthquake was located off the coast of Crete that Greek island was actually lifted up in certain areas by as much as thirty three feet or ten meters. Historian. Honest Mercer lineas recorded the event and the newly found ruins reveal that there's much more to the story. NERINA says, the discovery also illuminates the economy of Roman. North Africa and provides further evidence for the popularity of Garum in the Roman Diet. The detail is significant. Garum was a big deal throughout the Roman Empire and as Italian archaeologist Claudio Geraldino has NPR it played a major role in the society's economy. He says that according to the Roman writers, a good bottle of garum could cost something like five hundred dollars today but that they also had garum for slaves that extremely cheap. So it is comparable to a modern amenity like. For instance, the underwater findings of Neapolis and it's abundant manufacturing materials indicate that the city was a major historical hub Neapolis, which means new city

Military chief of UNs most dangerous mission, in Mali, confident progress can be made

"The U._N.. Mission in Mali Minnesota is one of the toughest U._N.. Peacekeeping Operations in the world peacekeepers stationed there have sustained severe and regular casualties from the activities of armed groups in the north of the country and many civilians of born the brunt of instability which includes deadly into ethnic clashes the full commander of municipal is the Swedish General Dennis Yudin spoarer. He has an extensive background in international national peace operations notably in Bosnia Herzegovina Sudan and Afghanistan Ben Mailer from you. A news asked General Yoon spoarer to outline why the U._N.. Must maintain its presence in Mali first of all the U._N.. When Mission Imola is important not just from all not just for the region but it has implications for other parts of the world so it's a conflict that should do concern a lot of other countries and we see that manifest itself in the huge commitment <hes> in the force with some fifty five nations being dedicated to make a difference and second part is that is a very challenging mission that has <hes> threats that seldom come to to U._N.? Mission we have I._D.. Threats we have other ESA metric threats that makes it a difficult <hes> operation. It's serious in the sense that <hes> it defects population ocean at the end of the day the mall populations are the victims every day and in particular in the central region. We have a lot of attacks against civilians we see. The <hes> women receive children being attacked <hes> on on different <hes> in different locations and this is an environment that is unacceptable and we will do everything we can to to mitigate these threats. Somebody has described U._N.. Mission in Mali as probably the most dangerous peacekeeping mission in the world. What would you say to that? What is your view on that while I haven't found a comparison but it is <hes> <hes> it is a difficult mission and sadly we have had too many fatalities in the mission the way forward is to stay firm to stay proactive and to adjust to the threat environment and eh be unpredictable with regards to to these <hes> groups on groups that <hes> challenge security we will continue to do so we are determined and we are focused on our mandate? What is the greatest need for you who and the troops in Mali to be able to succeed against this violent forces in the country particularly in the north to make progress at the most important part for the country's a whole <hes> and also to ensure <unk> security is to to make sure that the government extend its authority throughout the country being pressed sent the providing social services including security that will be the best way to bring the country? Ah Back to peace and stability we will be there s a facilitator supporter but the government is too key actress for people who may not have the map of Mali. Can you describe how broad. Road how wide how big the country's because you mention govern presence in many parts is probably lacking describe how large and Iria covered in why that is challenged well. It's a large which country and <hes> it's some fourteen million people in the country comparing it to other countries <hes> in particular juror most of them would be divorced by by the size of the mall moving from Bamako grow up to the north where we have stationed take some three hours of flying and that's not at all at a very north of the country so it's a huge area to cover some parts of debt. Ah Danced in the central region southern part but in the north <hes> there are the people that live there are dispersed small villages and they are spread out throughout this vast area yeah. It's not just the U._N.. Peacekeeping mission that is active in Mali varies also the French counter-terrorism abrasion going on in Mali and we also have the G. Five Sahel joint force how how do you as force commander for the U._N.. Mission combined with all these other elements. Are there too many chiefs too many actors making things complicated how you manage well <hes> at the end of the day we all the have shared the same aspiration and bringing peace and security to molly we have different mandates and we have different reporting chains but on the ground we share this aspirational moving. Living things practically on the ground so I say with great determination that the corporation works very well be meet we discussed we exchange information on a daily basis on different operations. We will have to continue to do this even more in the future but I'm very pleased with a corporation that <hes> that we enjoy and it's a necessity to have different different <hes> missions because we have so different mandates the situation in Libya. A lot of people believe that is what has led down south to the deteriorating situation in Mali. How much is the situation in Mali affected by instability insecurity up north in leader aid? It's difficult to say to what extent but <hes> there is. <hes> correlation what happens in northern Africa Libya impacts <hes> molly as much as impacts the neighboring countries so molly and we will have to continue to monitor development there in order to better understand how security threats toward security will develop in the coming in coming months. If somebody's feeling hopeless thinking that the situation in Molly's just worse how would you as false command. Give them hope to tell them that you can see light at the end of the tunnel. What signs do you see? I see some very promising signs and I would like to emphasize the government's commitment now stepping forward realizing the urgency and the need.

"Potential for a conflict of the manner in which he is handled the designation of their national guard as a terrorist group and withdrawing from the nuclear agreement even though Iran was in compliance with the nuclear agreement. Right now. Heavy tension. What about John Bolton and his role in all of this is he angling to have some sort of military conflict with Iran, even though the president said he hoped that, that was not the case. Well, John Bolton is clearly put a military option on the table despite the fact there's been no consultation with congress in regards to use of force and no authorization for the use of force, and clearly, there would be a requirement for congress to act now. I expect Mr. Bolton and Mr. Trump might have different views on that. But that's the constitution. That's an area politico. Thank you, Senator. You've just ended at this actually just now but this was we, we are lawmakers warned the administration against doing something without seeking congressional approval with regard to war making powers. They've also warned that the administration shouldn't use the two thousand one authorization for the use of military force to justify any sort of military action or preemptive strike. Those warnings really ring hollow these days because congress has ceded much of its war making powers, especially over the past three, administrations to the executive branch is that trend reversible at this point? Why certainly hope so. You're absolutely correct. We've seen presidents take a two thousand and one authorisation for use of military force, which was really aimed at Afghanistan, the Taliban and use that to go after ISIS in Syria or go after the northern Africa, which was clearly not congressional a tent. But the to use military force against Iran,.

What Does the Word 'Caucasian' Really Mean?

"Today's episode was brought to you by the new Capital One saver card with which you can earn four percent cashback on dining and entertainment. That means four percent on checking out that new restaurant everyone's talking about and four percent on watching your team win at home. You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. If you've ever watched a police procedural, you've probably heard a description of a suspect that goes, something like this. The suspect is a six foot one hundred and eighty pound Caucasian male wearing a white t shirt jeans, and so on, but what does Caucasian really mean, it's easy, of course, to acquaint Caucasian with white, but that one word Caucasian touches on issues much deeper than skin color it kindles questions of race and the very origin of humans it even exposes the topic of whether race exists outside of our own weird minds. Spoiler in humans. No genetic basis exists to separate our species into races. We spoke with Joseph graves, a professor of nano engineering and the intern dean at the joint school of NATO science and engineering in Greensboro, North Carolina. He said there's no scientific justification for use of the term Caucasian. It's actually a nineteenth century INTERPOL logical idea that was based around a false conception of the origin of the human species. I was in the caucus mountains the caucus mountains run from the Black Sea to the west to the Caspian Sea on the east in an area, that's considered by many as the crossroads between eastern, Europe and western Asia. These mountain ranges two of them, the greater and lesser are due east of Italy due north of Iraq and do west of India. The southern tip of Russia. Lies to the north of the Caucasus mountains to the immediate South Georgia, a former Soviet Republic. This is where Caucasians true Caucasians. Call home people from Georgia rusher Azerbaijan and Armenia hail from that area. But Caucasians as I identified by German Interpal, just union Frederick bloom Bach, and as some still think of the group today lay claim to a lot more real estate than that in seventeen ninety five in the third edition of his book, titled on the natural varieties of mankind. Blooming book building on work by sweeter, scientists careless Lineas and others used the word Caucasian to describe one of his five races of man, he determined each through scientific. Methods like the measuring of skulls and tied each distinct. Geographic regions Caucasians were as Bloomberg presented them the white race and included people not only from the caucus region. But also those from Europe northern India and parts of northern Africa. The other groups Bloomberg identified tied loosely skin color were Malaysian native American and Mongolian though, Bloomberg found that the quote, many varieties of men are as present known to be one and the same species his work. Nonetheless was seen as giving scientific credence to the concept of biological race. Over the years that notion has been abused in order to separate groups of people often by skin color and to declare through some bastardisation of science the superiority of one race over others. Also years after Bloomberg scientists found that the earliest humans didn't come from the caucus, but from Africa in modern day, the opium. Copa classifying humans into races. Whatever boombox intentions continues today. The term Caucasian is still rolled out occasionally and not only on TV police dramas grave said I was just at a conference here in Minnesota where researcher from South Africa kept referring to herself and others in her country as Caucasians, I think it is very very much a white supremacist racist ideology, I think it has to do with your Centric, racial ideology. People wish to hold onto the special designation exemplified by this term Caucasian beyond Caucasian. The US census bureau has its own definition of race, quote, a person self-identification with one or more social groups and asks respondents to choose from its own categories, white black or African American Asian American Indian and Alaska native native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander. The census allows those survey to choose some other race as well the census bureau's definition of race, but it self identified and based on social groups. Is different than blooming box in that. It's notably social not scientific and supports the now widely accepted finding that race is not something that supported by science genetically speaking someone can't be of the white race or the Caucasian race or the Mongolian race. We are of one species, according to the national human genome research institute, humans are ninety nine point nine percent identical in genetic makeup. Gordon hudson. A professor of psychology at Canada's Brock university explained in psychology today. Scientists generally do not recognize races biologically meaningful yet scientists including me discuss race and described the racial composition of our samples to be clear. I'm not advocating that we ignore race. In fact, there are many dangers ignoring raises a social topic race's real but race is socially real not biologically real. Yet, the term Caucasian despite its problems has proven stubbornly resilient, some people perceive it as being more scientific or dispassionate than saying white. Even though the exact opposite is true based on the words origins from a proven Lee incorrect hypothesis and later used to perpetuate prejudice in two thousand four graves wrote a book called the Ray Smith. Why would pretend race exists in America from the introduction? Quote. We must recognize that the underlying biological diversity of the human species cannot be artificially portioned into races because races are simply not biologically justified. If we can understand that all allegiance to racism is ideological not scientific then we may be able to silence. The biggest once and for all.

"In Europe northern Africa. They truly and then USO shows and bases all around the United States and Canada. I mean, really they they circled the globe in these pianos would have obviously those are all different conditions, and there are a whole lot different than the concert halls. Trained Pena's playing. Did they have to accommodate the conditions that they anticipated the Piano's would be subjected to. Oh, absolutely. There's so many adjustments that had to be made first of all the soundboard was twice baked, you know, it was really really prepared for all kinds of humidity. The it was there were brass screws that actually screwed the soundboards to the frame of the piano because they just knew especially in the South Pacific that they would work and and pull away there were off kinds of insect treatments. For instance, to the Felton and the parts of the piano that could be consumed. By insects. They in those days, they used still use ivory keys, but ivory would not hold up. And so they developed a celluloid key topped. And so just a lot of adjustments Sunway was pretty ingenious in meeting all the requirements of the war production board, will it really shows sort of. I guess the American ingenuity to modify the piano for the conditions. It was going to face you, just again, you just wouldn't think of this unless some expert like you was explaining it. But I have to ask. Now, we've all seen these beautiful black lacquered Stein ways. Or maybe they've got maybe their white or some other color. What was the? Our appearance of these vertical victory pianos. One letter. I've I read. Young GI is writing about the arrival of the an army GI, piano. And he said we took it off the Jeep, and it was exactly the same color as as the Jeep. So they the army Pinos were olive drab. The navy pianos were gray. They they're the military was very specific about what color they needed to be in those of us who served can just absolutely envision this. You teach this beautiful instrument and by God. Everything's everything's. Gotta be olive drab, you know, or everything's gotta be an ship. Everything's gotta be gray. So yeah. That is the department of defense way. I. Everybody. Understood they didn't change the rules here. They applied the rules to these feel pianos. How was the music communicated? Professor Peterson would guys have their own sheet music. Would they get sheet music in the location? How did how did they get the music to play? The the music was actually packed created with the piano and every every crate contained a similar assortment, but but various, you know, differences, but it it contained an assortment of sheet music, Protestant hymns. Popular music, patriotic music, some classical pieces, especially swing. Jazz, but various kinds of jazz, boogie Woogie. Just just what they really believed that the soldiers would would consumed as soon as as they opened it, and and that seems to be what happened. Well, it's a very again, you can sort of see how different types of music would fit different circumstances for the troops and probably different players skill levels. I would assume as well. Yes. Yes. And so you have this conversation with Henry Steinway? Did you go back home? And how does this say inspect your life? Well, I truly didn't have any idea how it was going to affect my life at the time. First of all because I I was almost. I was so surprised you know, I have a doctorate in music. I'm supposed to know everything and I had never heard of this. And so I came home, and I started telling people what Mr. Stein, we had had told me and lo and behold, nobody knows this this story. And so I just got more and more interested. I started visiting the Steinway archives in Queens, New York and seeing what I could find about this project, and I gradually decided that I needed to tell this that this is not only an important piece of history. But it's also important for us to know today. I think it's also one of those stories where when you start hearing it, you can see this intersection of music entertainment morale. The war effort coming together in a way that makes so much sense. When somebody explains it to you. But I would never have guessed it without having had the good fortune of hearing, you present your programme the victory vertical piano project where you interspersed both these the history in the pictures of this. But also, the actual music that was likely played. And maybe you can talk about some of your favorite selections that actually get played.
