"Rental house every summer at the Jersey Shore family night at the drive in movies, a pool in the yard and a basketball court over the garage. But he didn't just provide material for us. He was always there for us, too. He was an old school dad. There wasn't a lot of hugging her praise. On the rare occasion, he said something nice It meant something not bad. You would say after a good effort. It was a particularly good effort, you would say not bad. And then repeat it. He wasn't a man who looked back on life with regret he had little use for taking his own temperature. He had a temper. I was afraid of him, but not physically. I was afraid to let him down, afraid to disappoint him. When he yelled. It made me tremble. His temper had that kind of power. Remember the fights he had with my mom. I never understood them or what they were about. But what kid does.

How Tech Might Clean up Concrete

"Las vegas hosted. Its first in person in this week. Since the pandemic it's called world of concrete and it normally some sixty thousand engineers architects masons contractors not quite a full turn out this year but marketplace senior reporter. Matt levin was there i asked him what kind of tech he'd been seeing. There has been kind of a drive towards more automation. The construction industry still kind of old old school tech right. It's a lot of manual labor. Which is very intensive. And there's been a labor shortage for quite some time. The pandemic has somewhat exacerbated that and so there has been a drive among toolmakers to try to have some of the more labor intensive parts of construction be automated be done by robots. And you've got some sound of a robot. Alice about j. J. biden is a semi autonomous robot. Kind of looks like a meson bony without a driver's seat with a big hydraulic arm. Sticking up and then the hydraulic arm shoots up into the ceiling and starts drilling holes on. Its own so you load a digital plan of what the ceiling and the environment. The robot is working in looks at and then the robot pretty much takes care of the rest. It was pretty impressive to make concrete. You need cement which is responsible for eight percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Are you hearing much about sixteen ability there so some. I think i was expecting a little more conversation about it. I think it is notable head. The major cement manufacturers their trade group issued a statement in november they pledged to go carbon neutral by twenty fifty at that has symbolic importance. This is not an industry that's known for being the most environmentally conscious. The route to get there seems difficult because some men is inherently a carbon emitting substance

"So today on our episode. What we're gonna do is we're just gonna kick it back old school and as our long-term listeners will notice. Sometimes chris and i liked to do these episodes where we don't really have a specific guests speaking about a topic but we kind of talk about a variety of topics that we've seen in the ecosystem. We think are interesting maybe of note and discuss them here. Live so you up for that chris. I'm totally up for that. We have fun with these episodes. I enjoy him as a little free form for us exactly. Yeah and i'm sure it shows to our listeners. how ignorant we are in certain cases. But that's okay because as everybody who is exploring the space everybody has their own little niche spear of and it seemed like these other people are like very knowledgeable in all of ai but they have their own little niche of knowledge to so it's good to sort of dip our toes into different areas. At least it is for me. I think you know that is something that we talk about a little bit in the last episode for for anybody that might've been listening with just the fact that there is too much stuff for everyone to know all of it. And so you kind of have to pick and choose where you're gonna dive in and that might be something worth talking about today because you have to kind of make some choices and it's interesting. How the different choices. People make affects. How a team might come together. And what the team's capabilities aren't stuff. So there's a lot of ramifications here. Yeah there's definitely the concept as well as like when you're putting together a data science team or a team or something like that actually. It's funny we're actually bringing this up because we had one of these discussions internally actually even this week is hey what are the advantages of having a sort of organizationally separate you know data science. Ai unit versus data science in ai people embedded in various teams throughout the organization and all within those specific people. Of course there's a slant. Sometimes people want to higher end data science people or people to just do the modeling and analysis stuff. And don't worry about the other things. Just focus on that stuff and we'll handle the business logic and like pushing that out into products and all of that stuff

"Week's project car of the week is a retired mo- par drag car and you should know by now how cool i think old school mo- par drag cars are so it's no surprise. Why pick this drag challenger for project. The week it was posted on the talking mo- parts facebook page on wednesday june second at three o'clock and there is a big mistake in the ad which we will discuss after here is the ad nineteen seventy dodge challenger race car twenty thousand dollars. Joseph used cars vintage pro stock. Hardy roller chassis. Steele roof and quarters would make a good twenty eight and a half tire class car or bracket or whatever you wanna race twenty thousand or best offer title status is missing okay folks so if you saw the car or looking at it right now listening to this. You'd see that the car is a nineteen seventy-one assuming that the grill retail i panel have never been changed and the ad lists it as a seventy that's annoying to me ad also states. The title is missing which also annoys me. But it's understandable considering the car's been out of commission likely since the seventies the fender tag is long gone unless these guys have it and they will include it with the sale but look the cars and old drag car and if it were to see the track again it would definitely need some upgrading and updating. But that's not exactly how i roll. I'd love to be able to drive this car on the road into shows and cruises so that's the direction i would take it. I would actually leave it. The nostalgic look. But i would obviously get it safe and able to be street driven. The exterior of this car needs to be preserved. Exactly how it is with. Its wild custom paint job in giant period. Correct looking offset hood scoop. It's really hard for me to explain how this car looked. So you really have to go to the talking about parts. facebook page. Go back to wednesday. June second at three o'clock and check this car out. But you know let's not forget to mention. This car was driven an own by west jury and the chassis was built by the legendary drag racer and racecar builder. Don hardy which is really cool

Alright so advil is a development environment for building web apps quickly and simply and it does that by letting you use python everywhere so if you jump into the ample editor you'll get a drag and drop. Ui created you can build by component based you is and and if you double click a button now. You're editing the python code runs in the web browser when you interact with you. I and then you can also write some seven code and build a database and at also examined integrations usual indication that sort of thing and then you click and it in cut of several sort of way so maybe the best way to think about it is if you think about those old school rapid app dev tools. We had like the end. The desktop areas like visual basic delfi. It's like that for the web. I see so so the If i remember those tools basically you had this you kind of whizzy wig like editor and you can kind of drag and drop buttons. You double click on them and it kind of takes you to some partially auto generated code. Yeah exactly that. So what it means is that you can build your user interface without having to get down and dirty into the html and css instantly You can it's real programming. This is not one of those no coat things because you're actually writing real code and a real programming language python but runs in the browser we compile about to javascript when we can talk about how we do that. If you like and then rather than having to deal with the acc p. and routing and rest and points and all that stuff you can just say okay. I'm going to define a python module it runs on the server.

Microsoft Says Russian Hackers Launched New Global Attack

"Russian hack of the U. S government by a group that may have already broken into government systems, which Raises the question. Why does this keep happening? Earlier today, Microsoft announced that hackers linked to Russian intelligence infiltrated an email account at the U. S Agency for International Development or U S. A. I. D Hackers then use that account to target as many as 150, other government development and human rights organizations globally. Chris Painter is president of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise and joins us now welcome. Maybe her So Microsoft Cyber Security officials attributing this attack to a Russian based group called Nobel Liam and says that they've also seen some overlap with another Russian group called Cozy Bear, which was behind the solar winds attack last year. I mean, how do experts determine who's responsible? Well, they look at a range of things, and I think Microsoft looked at what the tactics and procedures of this group did followed. Some of the electronic evidence also looked at motives. And we certainly have seen Askew mentioned no shortage of Russian government sponsored malicious activity online. And this is just the latest chapter of that, right. OK, So what was the key weakness that these hackers exploited in this case like like? Was it a pretty sophisticated breach? Well, unlike the solar winds attack an intrusion that was very sophisticated, not really seen before. This one is really old school. It seems to be the same actors. The cozy bear actors as they're called. Bear because it's Russia, and they've been involved in election interference activity, so it went activity. But here they basically used what's called fishing. Which is this simply sending out false emails pretending to be from in this case, US the idea Government agency. Two people. People think those emails or trusted because they look like they're from that agency. They click on them.

It was up to like sixty four and i looked at that. Gosh that's a lot less so there's pretty much no way i can talk about anything else right now. But there's an interesting dynamic. Though right google bitcoin and on and other cryptos crashing as i speak to you and gold has perked up a little bit. It's actually perked up a lot. It's in in the eighteen hundreds now which is really cool and you know we keep an eye on sentiment trader on jason jeffords website. Send him and trader dot com. He's a very very well. Informed investor he spends all his time and energy looking at just dozens and dozens of of sentiment indicators and anything like sentiment indicator so one of those things is the two hundred day moving average and gold and he says look when when it gets above the two hundred day moving average of behaves really well and it's below it you know not so much and it popped back up above it recently so here we see for some time we've had people saying well gold is old school.

What side do you bet on dan. Well right now. It seems pretty clear. I mean the pandemic winners right some of these high valuation high growth names that were really well situated during just the unique situation during the pandemic they pulled forward a lot of demand here and now they're faced with decelerating metrics forward on all sorts of occasions. You have fastly down there. Facet was down twenty five percent today.

And rather than give it a bunch of intro. I'm just going to dive in. Thanks ben for allowing us to read this on. Today's show and i'll be back in a few minutes to discuss in praise of bitcoin. One evening a few weeks ago. I was on a zoom call with a bunch of academic think tank and fed economists for a bitcoin discussion. A lot of names. You'd know if you're familiar with those circles. The most famous one being paul krugman. Who by the way. I found to be charming genuinely open-minded and surprisingly humble about the entire enterprise of academic economics. I had been invited to be on the anti bitcoin side of the discussion but they needed have bothered. Because there was no pro- bitcoin side crumlin lead with a simple question. What's the use case for bitcoin. Not a theoretical thing. But in actual use of bitcoin to solve a problem in the real world which led to an hour. Long extremely earnest and altogether unsatisfying conversation about financial transfers out of venezuela trade settlement and securitisation.

Nineteen ninety-seven us decided to Found the new company. Take me to the journey. Why while tap-in the you know let was the driving forces behind this decision. I'll tell you. So when i was going through actually going through architecture school and during that time in architecture school i was part of a generation that got to use technology for the first time in that field so lapped we doing everything on laptops and everything was digital based in. We're creating animations of spaces and the industry of architecture is still very. Was that time very old school right. Everything's done with pencil and t squares and we were part of this new generation so everything that we were doing was sort of against the grain and of course there's some people it architecture who would embrace that this is the future in there others. Of course you know legacy architects of course that would say oh. You're not able to get the same touch on a on an idea drawing and so of course you know we're young. We embrace embrace that idea. I realize though that i loved using technology to problem solve. But i didn't really enjoy the future of the industry because it seemed very top down. That is if you wanted to do something important. In the industry you had to wait. Twenty years so being naive as i was I looked at advertising and thought well maybe an advertising ideas come quicker and for young adults.

It was an important spot for the bronze industry they exported works all over but the thing that really put it on the map the rose as with any good myth. There are a few different versions of this origin story. But here's a popular. Take on it back in the eight hundred. There's a guy named charlemagne charles. The great he was one of those old school emperors ruled over huge parts of europe and he was also one of those emperors who took his christianity very seriously. You don't have to know who the saxons are. But when charlemagne conquered them he decreed that the either had to become christians or be put to death his son and heir was called louis the pious and in the year eight fifteen louis was enjoying himself on a hunt in central germany. When he got pretty badly lost louis was trying to find his bearings when he happened upon a wild rose bush that was blooming right through the snow. We couldn't believe his eyes and his crew caught up with him. He told them he wanted to build a cathedral. They're dedicated to the virgin mary. In according to legend he was actually carrying. Some of mary's remains with him in the rose is very important and the story of the foundation of sign in combination with a reliquary with relics of the virgin. Mary and so. It was told that the virgin mary and is. We'll protect this place. That's kouadio director of the cathedral's museum when she says reliquary. She means the spot within the cathedral where mary's remains are held that and the rose turned hildesheim into a pretty big deal pretty quickly.

"Don't right now. I mean i think clubhouse its own separate medium It's not the same thing as podcasting. I think there's a lot of people trying to do podcasting over there and you know Mark cuban announced his his play that is combined podcasting with a social audio type of platform but We shall see how that works out. I think a lot of people also think That that the audio quality or the quality of a podcast that's produced in that type of an environment is not it is only going to be good for a certain. John mara a podcast. It isn't going to be good for all types of podcast so it's it's You know shows like this one or shows like a show like jj. Jackson does the school podcasting. Relax a lot of people coming into the program but other shows you know doing it on club houses not necessarily going to be Be a good fit because the audio quality is about as good as phone quality and therein lies the the challenge right it just it just sounds yelled sounds like the old days matter of fact the audio sounds exactly like type audio. We're putting out in two thousand four. So do i try. Try news a higher quality. Microphone when i do clubhouse so it it hopefully. I don't know what it sounds like. I haven't heard my voice on a recording yet so to know if it sounds good on the other end because the tech from what i've been reading and of course it came out who they're using they're using A chinese bender For their audio attack. And i was reading through that in. I couldn't find specifications on the quality of audio cassettes. something. I can't went looking for With them but if you think about the amount of bandwidth amount of number of rooms say have. I'm sure it's not set very high just roma performance and or a cost perspective. You know you increase the quality you increase the you know the bandwidth. So i don't know we'll see What happens with the clubhouse. It was a lot of discussions about it and again. I think it's great for after parties. I'm not necessarily. I know we're going to try it with this show. But it's going to be more where you and i are going to do recording like this and then you're gonna patches in the clubhouse and then we can bring someone on so interesting to see how that kind of how that kind of works out..

"To remember a very small a likely to disappear, and so there's an urgent conservation since to preserving the habitat. Given. So many of them are in these areas that are warming well, it's a complicated question to do that, and many of these areas are already preserved in the sense that they they're occurring in nature reserves and that the most important thing I think we can do educate the public about how climate is changing. Everybody can play a role in reducing those emissions that will. Help ULTA warming and That will have much You know have an impact across a very large part of the globe, and that's part of why we wanted to do this work to help people understand that although organisms occur in many places today, it's taken the millions and billions of years to do so and given how adorable penguins are. Presumably, they're pretty good ambassadors for getting that message across exactly there you know everybody loves a penguin. As I like to say, and as a consequence, they can act as a real ambassador of flagship for many of the other seabird species and other species that occur in same environments that might not be quite as charismatic, but just as much. UNDIS- straight from the same kinds of environmental impacts, professor Bowie thank you very much for sharing research with us today. Thank you very much. Nice to talk to you. Good. Bye. Rory Bowie is a professor of integrative biology at Berkeley, and that's where we reached him. His Penguin Research was published in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Ten years ago, Bill, went to a closing sale at an Ottawa Antique shop the store was trying to get rid of inventory. So the gave him two statues one of Saint Theresa and one of Jesus he decided to put them in his bathroom and thought they would just collect dust next to the soap dispenser. Instead, the two statues started a decade long project to cover every inch of his bathroom with other religious artifacts earlier this week Mr Stobie's spoke with CBC Ottawa morning about the bathroom shrine he calls the grotto and why he's decided to take it all down. Gradually just grew and grew, and then I got into the collecting of items from garage sales and flea markets. People started bringing me things from vacation travels things that. They had in their garages and back shelves and So did away and from there it just it just took off and. People started to take an interest in it and the collection grew over time. I was just looking at pictures of your collection on our website CBC DOT CA Slash Ottawa and I. It got so crowded that. The little sink in the bathroom was filled with statuary. Now, there are no pictures of the commode. Please tell me that some of these religious statues didn't make it too close to that. No I well, they didn't make it too close to the seat, but the the top of the tank with certainly covered with things and Pretty much every other inch of the room had something did any of your guests ever say bill? You might not be a religious person, but I am and I find that a little questionable. Nobody actually ever said that the the the grotto offended them or that the collection offended them some people found it a bit. A lot of people found it a bit odd but no over the course of the the decade that the was there people saw it for what it was an unusual installation something that could have layers of meaning to it if you wanted to explore it but I'm just wasn't being done out of disrespect for religious for religious artifacts during the pandemic though you decided that it was time to make some pretty big changes. What happened Each year. I would take everything out, clean it all off the down wiped down the counters and things then. Resurrect the the grotto So when that time rolled around this year, I wanted to to do that and as always cleaning always I been in a bit of a reflective mood like a lot of people during the pandemic thinking about where things are going and where where, where I wanna go with my life in a in a readjusted Canada, and so those are buzzing through my head is I'm tidying up and it just realized that now the time has come, it's been. ten going on eleven years I. WanNa do something different than so it was time to to pack up the Gardo. Bill Toby speaking with Ottawa, guest host, Halley cotton them about a shrine he built in his bathroom. Post. It all started with an ad for a mysterious beverage called crank. You might recall that earlier this summer we spoke with University of Calgary researcher Paul. Fairy he had uncovered an ad about the beverage in an eighteen eighty three edition of the Calgary Herald newspaper. Posting the Ad Online Mr Ferri explained to guest host Duncan mccue how a friend finally tracked down a recipe for the nineteenth century drink. I think maybe two days into this whole saga, a friend of mine done lots bridge, Jennifer Davis found the the recipe in an old a handbook of American recipes of some sort. So I mean it does seem pretty root beer. So it's a Sassafras Parrilla camel blows which apparently just leaves cinnamon ginger broom altogether add some green tea for some reason, and then add some molasses east and then you've got your Sofa Abacha crown it seems it seems like a pretty vague recipe from what I've read you know sent to suit your taste. Yes. That's definitely the mystery element I think that whoever is brewing at we'll have to wrestle with. Blake belding is the brewer who wrestled with that recipe and finally quenched our collective cronk thirst Mr. Belding is the CO owner of Cold Garden Beverage Company which just released their first batch of the century old brew we reached him in Calgary. Blake we are all dying to know here. What does krong taste like? Well I would say it's It's tastes kind of like a herbal Saffir real out there used to be an ice cream parlor here in Toronto that had what they called South. Parrilla and it was kind of like root beer remember tasting it. It was a very modern variation on that. What about the other undertones? What else is there? Yeah. So it is it does have a roof theory component I mean root beer, the base of Rubio Saas Parrilla, and originally, Sassafras with a very unique aroma and flavor, and so we weren't able to use Sassafras. So he was kind of a collection of other herbs to try and get that flavor so. I would say it. It's like a very herbal. Dry Root beer it's not sweet. Molasses the showgirl from antidote but the the undertones of molasses very present. Still why were able to us? So we didn't know this at the time, but Sassafras has Slightly carcinogenic in certain amounts and it's also use it a precursor for narcotic production. So you're allowed to purchase it and use it at home, but you're not allowed to use it in commercial preparations. So we rushed out and bought two pounds of it, and now we're stuck with this Poison, powder in our ingredients and we don't really know what to do with us. We just a clip of Paul Fairy who first discovered and told us about Cronk in June at how did you first hear about this.

Hi Josh Block host of uncover escaping nexium from CBC podcasts. I pull back the curtain on the secret of self help group that experts call called and follow one woman's heroin journey to get out. The podcast was featured in Rolling Stone magazine and named one of the best podcasts of two thousand eighteen in the Atlantic listened to uncover escaping nexium on CBC listen or wherever you get your podcast the. Question is millions of years old twenty, two, million years and scientists think they finally have the answer for eons those who study penguins believe they originated in the frigid cold waters of Antarctica but a newly published study found that they actually evolved in much warmer waters. Rory Bowie is one of the lead researchers and a professor of integrative biology at the University of California Berkeley. We reached him in Berkeley. Professor Bowie if penguins didn't originate in Antarctica, where did they come from? So WHO's based on some new work that we've just completed using whole genome data help us resolve that question which has puzzled people for a long time and we able to quite conclusively show that Penguins originated. Along the coast, Australia. New Zealand nearby islands in the Pacific, and that this occurred for Living Penguins about twenty two million years ago. Why did scientists think that they might have originated in Antarctica? That's an interesting story. So it comes back to looking at the two most unique penguins. What many of us sort of identifies I'll I thought me think about penguins and that's the largest species, the emperor in the Qing Penguin. Imprint Penguins own courant article and King Penguins occur both on article but also some of the nearby islands and these two very big species. Separate out from the other species and because they occur in that environment was thought that that's where penguins originated but it turns out that when you include all the species together in a single analysis in some fossil data in suggests that penguins as she originated in slightly warmer waters. Now I understand you always suspected that this was the case what did you and your team due to find out. So at some of the fossil dated hinted that New Zealand Israeli, the hotspot of penguin evolution, and so we wanted to take A. Closer look at this question, and so we decided that the best way to do that was to try and obtain the most amount of information we could, and so to do that, we sequenced the whole genomes of twenty two different penguins revisiting eighteen modern species, and then we were able to use an analysis of this very large data set to resolve this longstanding question. What is so exciting about this knowledge? Well, I think the the thing that two things that really interested me that came out of this one is that we often Think of Penguins is occurring in these really freezing environments. But what we were able to show is that they actually originated in more temperate environments with the waters around New Zealand an Australian being about nine degrees, Celsius, and then we see twin radiations one moving down into the much colder into Arctic waters, and then another one that win the passage, the drake's passage between the tip of South American and Arctic opened allowing the currents that flow around the bottom of the will to change penguins were able to move up the south coast of. South America and eventually reached the equator where the Galapagos Islands and waters can be as Roma's twenty six degrees Celsius. It's remarkable to me that these seabirds cannot occupy these very different oceanic environments, and then the second thing we could show is we were able to identify some of the mutation, some of the genes that have enabled penguins to be able to survive in these different kinds of environments. Why would the penguins move what we think it's got to do with about five million years ago when the and Arctic ice sheet really intensified. By changing the relation of the currents at the bottom of the world, it allowed for upwelling. So these nutrient rich water from the deep ocean get pushed towards surface, which then brings in a lot of fish things like sardines in that feed on this nutrient, rich water, and so penguins following that food resource and that enabled them to throw them to occupy these new different these different habitats. It's hard to think of a harsher climate in Antarctic a, how were they able to adapt to such vastly different climates so in the end Arctic instance this partly why we see imprisoned king. Benjamin's being much larger than other species because they can conserve body heat but we will able to show that they've got interesting mutations in the genomes. Then enable them to control how they dilate and open up the blood vessels. So they can reduce the amount of blood that flows to the skin and retain warmer temperature inside, and they were also able to modify the efficiency with which they can carry oxygen in their blood, which is what allowed them to dive very deep and be able to feed on some of these deep ocean nutrient, rich food sources for example, and article. And this process as you've been referring to millions of years here this this is something that that took a long time to change. Yes. So I think that's another really important point make is that although penguins can occupy these very different environments today, it's taken them twenty million years to be able to occupy borders from freezing. Temperatures to up to sort of tropical oceans. and. The rate at which climate is changing today suggests that penguin not gonna be able to adapt fos enough to keep up with the pace of change and we already seen dramatic impact. So we've seen mass style of daily Penguin chicks in an article recently, improprieties had to relocate, and so the rate at which warming is happening is just to foster for evolution to be able to keep pace with it. So, how at risk are these various populations I think a lot of these populations are a traumatic risk. One of the other things we could do without our genome data is we will for the first time able to track how penguin population sizes have changed over the last million years, and we can show that penguins respond very positively within the club cools said. During, the loss clay seal periods, many penguins had the most abundant numbers and off to that point that was about forty to seventy thousand years ago, penguins being declining and as climate warms. Now, we think that many of these isolated island populations which we have.

"And Joe Biden and dog's breakfast Germany's agriculture minister is doing her best to mandate dog walking. But questions about enforcement abound, and our guest says the policy doesn't quite pass the sniff test as it happens the Wednesday edition radio that suspects the new rule will be a mastiff headache. Come. Back, to school, maybe just around the corner, but in Ontario students are already heading back to the classroom in the name of research today sick kids hospital began a two day simulation study looking at the effect of safety measures on students and teachers. They're not the only ones weighing the risks in Calgary parents must soon decide between in class or virtual learning. NBC Unions are calling for smaller classes while in Toronto parents are still waiting. For options from school boards. Here's how to mothers in. Toronto described their mood September approaches they alternate between feelings of extreme anxiety feelings of frustration anger. My biggest concerns are things like distancing proper ventilation infiltration and air circulation, and then also keeping class sizes really small. Do I feel confident sending my kids to school now I don't feel competent sending my kids to school. Do I feel like has another or a better option? No I. To Toronto appearance, sharing their concerns about sending their kids to school on CBS's metro morning today according to one expert. It's imperative that kids return Dr Martha. Fulford is an infectious diseases specialist. We reached her in Hamilton Ontario. Dr Fulford we just heard to parents worried about sending their kids back to school even the prime minister said this week he's on the fence. What do you make of their worries? It's unfortunate because I think we've become so. Concerned about just covid that we're forgetting to take a step back and look at what we're actually trying to accomplish. In, August we have a lot more information of WHO's actually at risk for the virus. We have much better testing. We have very good contact tracing, but we also need to have a much more tempered and and calm discussion about what actually happens if you get cold at what are they afraid of and so some of I think what we need to do is have discussion about risk perception versus actual risk. Is would be nice if we could sort of have everybody, take a step back and think of what the benefits of education are and not just worry about Ed. How big are the risks right now though when you look at the statistics in terms of Cova transmission at least as you see them. Right now they're low. We have very low numbers in Canada we have very good testing capacity and our public health as long as we continue to fund it very well are very good at contact tracing and controlling clusters, and we have to remember this Canada were comparable to the European countries were not out of control. The way perhaps might might be seeing south of the border. And because we we are able to track it and in a school be confined or the defined cohort. So if there were nope break, we would actually be able to identify but also very very, very important I think is to remind people that outbreaks in young people if we contain it and it doesn't go anywhere and it doesn't lead to hospitalization an adverse outcome. Then that's actually good news and we should be reassured but those numbers. Some of these children and teenagers may not suffer particularly adverse effects, but they may live with people who could immune compromised people right blue of illnesses, elderly grandparents, for example. So how do families measure the risks as it pertains to them? It's a challenge where we're never going to risk free. It's not going to go away as it is a risk mitigation but again, I would encourage people to look outs with the actual numbers on what does virus actually does what the true adverse effect is per hundred thousand population because it's actually quite reassuring. But there are households where you may need to have a little bit more cautious. The child comes home from school. You may need to have some discussion about what risks are we prepared to take in our home as we would have in the past with any other respiratory infection. Said I think? A huge part of this conversation must be. The harms of not going to school in the benefits of going to school both to the children for Society for future. So I personally would be very comfortable having a child, go back to school and I would be. Thrilled because I think the benefits far outweigh the risks at this stage. In many jurisdictions, the debate is focused on class sizes and the ability to distance children from each other also whether kids should wear masks how important you think these particular measures are. I think it's a hierarchy of everything we do that no one measure our one of the single most important things that I think we need to encourage and allowed facilitate is actually people who are sick to not come to school Then in terms of the other things, it's the engineering controls Citigroup, which you can desks it's the degree to which could have distancing and and digital magic distance two meters in Canada. One point, five meters in Germany one meter and France or Japan. There is clearly a role from mass. At high risk situations but even in hospitals were trained to wear masks, it is very, very difficult to wear mask all day long properly and the oath breaks that happened in healthcare facilities have actually been the result of a salient personal protective equipment, and so realistically, we need to not obsess on masks yes or no I think it's the whole package everything that will make the difference. Now if the risks are currently quite low, why do you think so many people are afraid of what will happen as kids return to school I'm not sure we've done as good a job at communicating as we could have, and I say we sort of physicians of some of the Infectious Disease Physicians as to the actual real risk people are are scared. Now, it's sometimes hard for them to even instead what scared of, and that's when saying it would be nice to take a step back and have the numbers putting context. So we've had, for example, the Kingston outbreak that was associated with a nail salon. It happened it was a close cluster public health identified. It contained it. There were no hospitalizations adverse. Oh, comes out such very encouraging. For, governments it will be critical of course to continue appropriately fund both our labs public health because that's that's the cornerstone of control halls. This is the ability to fast rapid testing and fast rapid contact tracing so that we can control clusters and we don't have a situation where overwhelmed. Now you're an infectious disease specialist you're not a fortune teller but. What do you think we are going to see here in Ontario and across the country come September. I think we're going to see numbers coming and going and going to call the waves panicked vote that term but I think we'll have numbers going up and down up and down almost sort of undulating But I think that the thing for me that would be the most important to look at WHO's getting it, how quickly can identify them and are they in vulnerable people. So if we don't have a surgeon or hospitals, we've got to control their ability to cope. Then we should be comfortable that we can carry on. I. Also think that I again, it's a personal opinion but for me the the very last semester close if we have been that situation again would be schools I think we really need to think as a society what her priority would we value what we want to see going forward and for me it's maximizing opportunities for the children so That we learned that or we learned to accept that these numbers going to common goal that, yes, we're going to have small outbreaks. Yes. It's going to be there. We have to learn how to coexist with this with the ballots temporary.

He got his two thousand career regular season victory and both when that happened. I'm curious what was because I'm sure you heard from a lot of people well. It was someone that you get a text message from or a phone call from that. was that was a lot of fun. You know buster eight lead somebody out you you know when they listen to this but you know probably the coolest part was A. Lotta ex players SIPPY tax. You know even going back to woody. Williams is like that while he joined her. You Know Ben that means a lot to me that you know they took the time to do that now. you know some friends a lot of the family a you know Huey Lewis for example. He was just he did a little thing for me. he sent me a nice tax so really we had them all over but I think you look back at the ex players that really nice messages to me. That's that's what I really appreciate. Yeah and I'M GONNA be asking you to choose to some of your favorite. situations favorite players like choosing which I know for us is going to be like choosing between to sons but before that I remember when I talked to you at the winter meetings last year about the fact that this was going to be the last year for you with the giants. It's I was under the assumption that definitely would be it and some of the interviews you've done. I seen your answers about whether or not you wanNA manage again for the record. Is it something something you want to continue doing. If the right opportunity comes along you know buster. I tell you what I've been saying really. Is You know when I made made made it probably that you know this should be for me I I really in their ass you know of course I got asked well. Thank commanded you get a you. Don't know that I don't know that until it's over and you know get away from it. You Know Oh how I I'm going to be doing and what I mean by. That is my appetite for managing again. I I just don't know I felt like it was time when I made this call aw I'm good with it. and I know my wife's good with it but you know hey. It's been doing it so long so i. I don't know you know. Some hits me later on could be a year from now. Whatever I I can't answer that do I. You know I walk away and and have all this free time on my hand where I'm going now. What yeah that's exactly right all right. I'm going to ask you to try to dig out some memories. What's if your favorite moment from your time as a manager. Well I mean. It's really a toss up and I'm not on defense here. I mean the getting the last out in two thousand ten world series you know when you know Brian Wilson the beer when he threw that front door cutter in the last out there it's it's a moment that I'll never could get you know ever done it. Barbara World cheers champion. It never happened in San Francisco so when he got crews on that pitch you know that's gotta be up there but handing the ball to my son is right up there and I didn't realize at the time. It never happened baseball. So you know I go to and I'll you know I got prefaced this a look. Uh Not so it'd be quick but the night before we were getting boat race and what I mean by that. The dodgers were beaten pretty bad so I get home and my wife sparking well. Why didn't you put bread in my son. I said well yeah. There's other kids called up. I don't WanNA show any favoritism. Whatever and she's the way he's not here quite the paycheck you know kind of getting on me so the next night and you know. I was same thing we're getting beat up pretty good and then one pitcher put in his pitch limit at come up the bases loaded could get out of that. Put bread in there and so anyway. I bring him in handling the ball such emotional and nervous time for me and I told him how to pitch to one you rebate. I said just throw strike on thrones insiders and he'll expand for you. Where do strike blend do some good sliders. It's up to play and why never swung and I guess one saying hey we wedding. That was your son because one and I have a great relationship. He said I wasn't going to swing the bat so my sock is back. The dugout is nice scouting report that in but you get the next guy out anyway wait. That was such a big moment for me. And of course I got home then Mama's going way to make you had to put a man with the bases loaded. You could find a better so I couldn't win on that. That one started. I'd Never Been No. That's okay. BOCCIA had never heard that story. So why don't you rebate took strike at intentionally for the sake of bread. That's what I heard you know 'cause I. I was asking somebody I couldn't believe one was more or less than so that was a feedback I'd gotten right and so I waited on and you know be on. Some never had a chance to talk to him. 'cause they laughed and of course he's home in the Dominican are playing baseball more but so yeah that was that was the case. You Know How some I guess I could say that was one to be but I guess Nicer Guy. He didn't do any more damage so tell me what it was like to point to the bullpen when you know that he's coming in and what did you say to him. baseball stuff aside when he walked in from the bullpen. Yeah it started when I started out to mount of course I some fans really got into rep being up there. They want to see him pitch and they were kind of looking for the moment so they were chanting his name but even more pressure on me so when I went out there I started feeling during then might call them. Sit on the mound you know I just couldn't believe this was happening in you you know it's it's the moment that neither one of us. I think we're ever forget I know I will but then we get to the mound. You know I didn't really go into anything in baseball. You know all the guys were there. Whatever just kind of you know kept it on that level and I think that something could add some fun with this you now and gave him a little game plan but I you know he ended up pitching at Petco to now where I was saying. Hey Go as you well know he hung around Ballpark a lot in young round pick goes. I think that would be too yeah. I remember also throw in Jack Murphy. As as well playing catch he was just a kid fling in the ball around all right again. I told you I was GONNA. Make you choose between kids. Who was a player? You really love to manage your career career. Oh Man Oh Jeez. I got a pretty good list here but yeah I mean Tony Gwynn played with them. you know coach them and manage them. In under you know forever grateful that he helped he helped me. My first year helped me establish credibility with the players you know hey boats knows what he's doing. That was ninety five. Come Up. If you remember that strike year Yup and so you know he he was a guy that deal for me but we're really Tim was one. I'd love to manage show. I like guys who assume a leadership role in the clubhouse house and so those in my early years those guys really meant a lot to me now up here I mean you know buster inbound those those two right up there of course hundred pence how inspiring he was so you know. I can't pick one. I mean there's so many the but you know those are Those guys are mentioned at the top and you know I forgot Trevor Hoffman. I there's no way I forget him with the leadership that he brought to you know the bullpen I wouldn't I wouldn't be managing this long but it was trevor so you know he's at the top and when and you get inducted the hall of Fame Trevor's GonNa have so much fun with that being part of that group already. That'll be awesome for you guys a player in your time managing who oh you just love this sense of humor. Oh you know probably Ryan -Tario I just I had him for a short time. This one funny he he was the Dugout Lucy every apartment JERRY EVERY TIME THEY THIRTY MR call come on Terry he an atom and but just you know his way of keeping been guys loose and having fun with the Game I wish I had him for a long time but it had them in two thousand twelve world series and ended up scoring scoring the winning run and he shut it down after that but I'd I'd put him up there. The hardest baseball related related conversation. You've had ever had with a player because you always hear you know managers. We'll talk about you know having to let somebody go or decision that sort of thing the hardest conversation you ever ahead with player. Wow you give me good here. I tell you probably better Barry Zito. You know it's put him Arlington coming. I'll give you the two incidents in two thousand ten we've decided not to put Berry on the playoff roster and that that was it's not an easy conversation the made it easier though being so professional about it and after a conversation but is spikes on went down down and threw a bullpen stay ready for the next round in case we needed him there but you know because he he was one of our you know starters he he's he's one of our guys granted was not a good year for them but it wasn't easy leave him off a dental company when I got him in the weight room real and you know in twelve and Timmy you know I'd like to put you in the bullpen. I think you could really help us. when you're at the playoffs with your help coming out and in here's a guy that's won cy young don't two no hitters you know what he's accomplished.

"And migration to bed stuy really picked up on the new a train along Fulton Street allowed black refugees from an overcrowded Harlem to make their way to greener pastures here in Brooklyn. The train was so important to black life in New York City. Got Its own saw. Ooh Must Take the age ray to go to him way up in Harlow. Take you for a while though bed stuy was racially integrated what changed that was redlining. When I learned about white flight in school I learned about it as a process that only started after World War Two and as the term white flight implies all all the responsibility was laid at the feet of individual families. Who fled the city to the suburbs? The real story actually starts about a decade earlier and surprise surprise centers on some shady backdoor back-door deals to try to get us out of the Great Depression. The federal government agreed to insure mortgages to get banks to start lending money again and get the economy going but the feds wouldn't you can put their money behind just any old loans so in hundreds of American cities local real estate and financial interest got together to draw maps there would show where it was safe and unsafe to to lend each neighborhood was given a letter grade. Each letter grade was indicated by color on the map was green be was blue. Sea was yellow. Andy was read. That's where the term redlining comes from in all of Brooklyn there was only one green neighborhood and it was where nobody lived and nothing had been built yet so there was limitless this potential to make money the implication being the presence of any people at all would bring value down and some people more than others along with the map came a description of why each area received its grade frequently citing racial and ethnic makeup in D. rated neighborhoods. They'd say things like Negro. Concentration or influx of Jews and communists wasn't wasn't subtle as a result of this the white people who could get out got out and the people of color who couldn't and for those left behind it became almost impossible impossible to buy or maintain a home all this got much worse after World War. Two hundreds of thousands of black Americans came to New York from the south as part of the second second great migration fleeing real terror and looking for factory jobs when they arrived the handful of neighborhoods where they clustered like Harlem in the Harlem of Brooklyn Bedford Bedford Stuyvesant were at the center of a perfect storm of disadvantages the manufacturing jobs southern migrants had hoped for were disappearing into the globalised labor market white people we're leaving for the suburbs with the help of the Gi bill and the Federal Highway Program and with the white people went essential city services quote unquote slums were cleared to make way for modern public housing but the modern public housing was built on the cheap and never properly maintained and thus bits die became known as ghetto.

"Schools we just want at the same resources as the other schools have that so for colors. I'm just laughing because the debate you hit the same debate eight hundred and fifty years later the same thing. Should we keep our kids in color schools so the color schools even have the name in colored schools in eighteen sixty nine principal Junius Morrell hired a white woman Emma prime to be the assistant principal which set off a huge debate within the community these as quotes come from letters to a local newspaper at the time there were educated black ladies compelled to accept menial positions at six eight dollars a month while here was a position one of them ought to have held by plight woman the tax payers of weeks Ville. The colored folks supported the school and and they ought to have black teachers the board in its wisdom having selected a white teacher will well satisfied with her and to discharge on account of her color simply would place the colored folks in a strange position. She was labor and with success to instruct their children and this is kind of in the context. It's also funny because the color schools actually sean had white students in them and they had for years. Julia read to us from a report from eighteen fifty three. You'll have to excuse me language the old as has been before hinted some paleface children attend this school the committee observed four boys and one girl who who were unquestionably of the pure Caucasian race besides several other some doubtful origins so at a certain point there was a debate about whether are they should throw the white kids out of the school because it was like like if it's GonNa be a color school then maybe we need to actually move all the white students out always a white population and weeks by eight hundred seventy the white population black population there nearly neck and neck with each other and then later on the white population definitely surpassing there was a huge wave of immigration from Europe and more and more of these immigrants came to Brooklyn after the Brooklyn Bridge was built meanwhile cullet school number to change his name to sixty eight but it was still mostly black and still operated out of a kind of one room country schoolhouse so oh Brooklyn still at this time its own city independent of New York was going to build them a new home but the nearby public schools were severely overcapacity and local white families petitioned. They should get the new building. They also argued of course that increasing. The size of the colored school would decrease their property values under pressure from these parents. The Brooklyn Board of Ed gave the new building away way to the white school. PS Eighty three initially the building was quote unquote integrated in a sense that you had to call at school on the first floor and the white school on the second floor but inevitably the colored school wasn't getting the same resources as the white school so families at the call at school came up with a plan to essentially integrate the schools by force they decided to register in mass ask for the white school not the coats but what that would have man would have been the and also of colored school number two and people had mixed feelings about that their concerns about the black teachers concerns about the control over education and what it would mean to just be an general school and not necessarily have that out leadership probably. GonNa think to yourself or the teachers that looked like my son or my daughter. Would they learn to take pride in who they are but at the same time audy's teaches competent will they learn skills is is very very similar to what's going on today so the school was integrated with an integrated teaching staff and integrated students and a black woman system principle but the neighborhood kept changing. We went for a walk with Alphonse who the neighborhood once known as weeks bill. This is like a on the hub of weeks old life so that's according to Troy Dean Street this right here behind. You is as you see it. It says public school eighty three right there. It's an imposing building with carved stone around the windows and doorways abandoned now. Broken Windows is public school eighty three. It's about to be turned into apartments in the eighteen hundreds black families in weeks. Ville had owned homes and land which they used used for farming and raising animals with a turn of the century as the city became more and more urbanized and more and more European immigrants moved in weeks full lost its independence homeownership homeownership and job opportunities declined most of the black institutions of weeks vote closed or moved away and weeks fill itself was mostly forgotten so even though weeks bill is now basically considered a part of bed stuy or at least bed stuy adjacent but has its own history after the break.

"We really get started. I want to tell you a little bit more about who we are where we are and why we're doing this. If each borough of New York words on City Brooklyn would be the third largest city in the United States after L. A. in Chicago and at its center is the largest urban concentration Asian of black people in the country exactly which neighborhoods make up the area we call Central Brooklyn can be debated but the historic core of it is Bedford stuyvesant and crown heights a my routine not run deep my grandmother and her siblings born in Jamaica. I came to Crown Heights in the forties and fifties I was born here. My parents moved to Queens when I was still in elementary school by made a very conscious effort to return after college in nineteen eighty five at the time mainstream America Sodas ghetto ghetto but I we saw the beauty strength the grit to walk blocks and blocks and see nothing but black people celebrating themselves to see their culture to eat their food to patronizing businesses. That was everything to me so that's why I want to fight this place. I've started in run half a dozen community. ORGANIZATIONS WORKED FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS DONOVAN RUN for office here myself in two thousand eleven. I Co founded the movement center a black lead community organizing group fight discriminatory policing Organiz ten in is to push back against abusive landlords and were even building a neighborhood own food corp but it's really just our way of surviving gentrification is a feels like we as black folks here are endangered endangered species. I get people see the Brownstone treeline blocks the profound sense of history and community. They want to be a part of it. People see the value here but for many that values predicated on getting rid of the low income black people were inconveniently still around bed is now listed fifty percent black. It's what I've always seen as so beautiful. It's evaporating. My roots run deep to my grandfather came here with his family. In the nineteen twenties they were choosing grants from what's now Ukraine and they landed in Brownsville to southeast of bed Stuy. My mom was actually born in this area but my grandfather and his brothers and sisters sisters they all got out of the old neighborhood and never looked back so I didn't even know that family history here in Brooklyn until I got an adult markets funny one thing that we have in in common that we both moved here right after college but it wasn't such a conscious decision for me to be honest. I only really came to bed style because I got priced out of the neighborhood next door but once I arrived everything that you're describing is what I saw the Brownstone and the tree lined blocks and the pride I saw how what made the neighborhood beautiful and unique was being celebrated and erased at the same same time and I understood that was part of that and I understood that it was much bigger than me. I've been here for seven years now. Teaching New York City History in public school classrooms all over the city using theatre to organize against discrimination in housing and health care eventually. I decided to go to Grad School of urban design and I knew from the beginning. I wanted to use that experience to learn more about this place place right live but also to contribute something to the fight that you've been fighting your life having been both agenda fire and a teacher. I was especially interested in the relationship between gentrification and schools and I saw the website of the Brooklyn Center that you were doing some parent organizing so that's what brought me to you and we had done some research district sixteen at Emc a few years before you showed up but I work had been basically either ignored or blocked by anyone who had the ability to do anything with it which is a story. We'll get to later anyway. I wrote my thesis. Listen when I was done. We were both like okay. I think we need to put this out into the world and that's how this podcast was born. We felt like we had stumbled upon something this rich and uncomplicated unique moment in the history of this neighborhood and city that we wanted to capture and share real time and the more we learned the more we knew that we have to go back in time wave eighth back in time to fully understand what's happening now all right then so we go two weeks. Ville so a lot of people who are me especially those who live in Brooklyn they said Oh. I never heard of this. I think people for some reason surprised when they hear that there was a free black settlement right here in Brooklyn. My name is Alfons Fabian. I am at soy educator at least from Heritage Center but Weeks Heritage Centre teaches the history of weeks though a free were you black settlement founded in central Brooklyn almost two hundred years ago. Let's back up for a second. The first Africans arrived in New York or as it was known at the time New Amsterdam as the property the Dutch west India Company in Sixteen Twenty six when the British took over New York became even more reliant on slave labor for by seventeen or three New York City had the second highest highest proportion of slaveholding families in the colonies up to Charleston South Carolina after the American Revolution New York state passed a series of gradual emancipation laws starting in seventeen ninety nine and in eighteen thirty eight a free black man named James Weeks bought two plots of land in Brooklyn. He wasn't the first but he got his name on the place. The men like James Weeks who came to central Brooklyn and started buying land subdividing and selling it to other free black men they hope to create a social and economic refuge for black people from an unfriendly white world dass what the original land investors had in mind like some sort of free space a safe space for black people in this country but it wasn't an entirely separate as project owning land in Brooklyn would also enable them to take part in politics according to eighteen twenty one st state constitution for free black men vote. They had to own at least two hundred and fifty dollars worth of land. This is a very vibrant self sufficient community in the eighteen sixties sixties and eighteen seventies as a self sufficient community. They established a number of institutions churches an orphanage a Horford elderly cemetery insurance companies the newspaper later on they own baseball seems there was the headquarters of the African Civilization Society a back to Africa movement seven years before Marcus Garvey even came along and a few doors down from that there was a school so we're looking at a concrete wall that says no dumping do not trespass the not litter do not graffiti. It's got barbed wire on the top and I believe it's a New York City Department of Transportation Tation depot. Some it takes up damn near an entire city block and it looks pretty kind of trouble it. I'm taking in the. I don't know what you want to call it irony or whatever uh. This is the site where colored school number two the second school for Black. Children Brooklyn was located as of eighteen forty seven. We I do know that. Language has changed around this. We're going to roll with what they use back. Then the earliest free black schools in New York City were in Manhattan and they were developed by. I guess what we would call benevolent benevolent whites but Brooklyn was different. We don't know exactly who started colored school number two but we do know that they were connected to a network of black leaders who are actively ably cultivating these schools as an expression of community uplift actually have some pictures this audio so Julia Kaiser's the collections Sion's manager at the weeks. They'll heritage center. It was a small school and it was mixed ages like when you see those pictures of like the country schoolhouse. That's that's kind of what it was like. When we think of all black schools now we immediately associate them with overcrowding in bed quality less than white schools but by all accounts the color schools in Brooklyn serve their students well the principle of colored school number two for many years was Junius see morale he had been enslaved and he went to Philadelphia. He was very very active in Philadelphia. He was active in the colored conventions movement. He was a writer from Philadelphia. He went to Albany but then Albany public schools were integrated in the process of integrating their public schools. All of the teachers that were in that black school lost their jobs. I call the school number two. They were having debates and discussions Russians. That would sound pretty familiar to us today. They were asking themselves should they integrate into public schools and while other saying no we need to keep our color.

"My name is Mark Winston Griffith. I'm an organizer a journalist and a public school parent. I was born in Central Brooklyn. I've been working here for thirty five years. My name is Max Friedman. I'm a teacher an audio producer. Anna any gender fire together we've been to dozens of public meetings and interviewed more than sixty people parents teachers and administrators politicians historians and activists my landlord and Lord my uncle trying to figure out what's going on here and what it means. We started with what seemed like a pretty straightforward question. Why is enrollment going down in district sixteen but nothing here is straightforward. You could blame it on the quality of the schools themselves. I have a big issue with people constantly saying district sixteenths will suck they suck they they don't you could blame it on the competition from well-funded charter schools shining themes and if you showed us a shiny that's the way they want to go. You could blame it on gentrification bed. Stuy is changing and a lot of the people moving in either. Don't have kids like me or send their kids elsewhere. The thought of even considering a public school in this neighborhood in our neighborhood was unheard of you know no only ever think about doing anything like that ironically. If more parents like Sarah Joe Hanson or convinced to choose their local school gentrification might actually resurrected district which would also contribute to the racial economic integration of at least one corner of New York City's deeply police arrogated school system but in Bedford stuyvesant one of the most iconic historically black neighborhoods in the United States integration writing on the coattails of gentrification might be you're tough sell. Some seat is part of an erasure of black and low income people. I think that every time minority have something good it gets taken away from US and liked to be able to hold onto something. District Sixteen is at a tipping point and what's at stake a lot more than lines on a map. It's the power to control control not only how and what children learn but what kind of city we're gonNA live in and who that city is going to serve and the biggest oldest questions we have is a country about power. I've been tested worked out right here in the schools of central Brooklyn for as long as there have been black children here and that's a long time to plan for community control was renewed renewed black people were capable of running schools. Say will burn the city down. It was a beautiful thing that got destroyed. The government was hostile pressure that we went to church church many of us. This is what happens when you don't have people who you're trying to serve as part of the solution and want us to be puppets heads down when they say the through supper we not having it. What am I doing. Why am I leave my kids at home to go and fight for something that the parents from that school didn't even come out to say your name. You're not born and raised here. You're and I do it di- you just got here. I am white but I am no dummy. What do you think you are. I am a pariah. What's happening in district. Sixteen is happening across awesome New York City and what's happening in New York City. It's happening in cities across the country. We've got eight episodes to tell you all about it.

"Marcus Garvey's widely considered the founding father of black nationalism born in Jamaica where my own family is from Garvey opened the first yes. US branch of his United Negro Improvement Association in Harlem in Nineteen Seventeen and by nineteen twenty the USDA had chapters in more than forty countries around the world they established the Negro Factories Corporation the Black Cross model on the Red Cross the Negro World Weekly newspaper and the Black Star Shipping Line if you've ever seen the Red Black and green black liberation flag that comes from the USDA Marcus Garvey died in nineteen forty but his ideas lived on from Oakland to Omaha to Brooklyn Brooklyn generations of black Americans were inspired by Garvey to build black businesses and institutions in Brooklyn nor did this ideal of black self-determination. Come more live than in Bedford stuyvesant so it's no surprise then in nineteen eighty seven a major thoroughfare in bed stuy was renamed Marcus Garvey Boulevard but bed stuy dies changing and you can see that change very clearly but in very different ways at two different public schools at both happened to sit on Marcus Garvey Boulevard at the corner of Marcus Garvey and Lafayette right across the street from the place where I do my laundry.

I can do stuff so <hes> just this past weekend. I went to a sausage in beer tasting event and it was fantastic. Oh and it's also the first nice day we've had since June of last year. So what you're saying is your crestfallen. I'm a little a little crestfallen. I'm Kinda. I'm just I'm triggered that old schools not available breaking the fourth wall <hes> regular <hes> but you know <hes> because of that we actually will have eventually a bonus episode of Auburn side where we talk better tasting and I talked about my Toronto Your Adventures the thing that I want to get out of the way before we get the actual topic of his episode and unfortunately missed with ultimate being here. He doesn't get the benefit on this conversation. <hes> this'll be the last time I speak about cinema because in between the last episode not counting joining the end game between the last regular episode in the Endgame Episode Send Me Just died and unfortunately I just obviously not a part of it anymore that the APP still lives which is kind of weird but if you go to the website right there's a long goodbye of our shutdown. We're doing this blah. Blah Blah Blah in what sucks for me is now I gotTa pay full price for movie tickets and I've been doing this for like a year and a half half of I'm I'm Kinda surprised that you guys don't have almost like I mean thing is we only have one big dominate one across Canada which has cineplex and they offer awards program called scene and they've actually incorporated more into the scene where if I go to a restaurant I spent a hundred bucks I can end up getting like two free movies because of it and it's it's a rewards program which is pretty sweet. I don't know why I know line. Mark used to be owned by Mark Cuban. I don't know who owns it now. <hes> I just I don't know why I don't have like a reward programs like hey frequent our place and after like six movies you get free one. Oh we kinda have that like there's three main Franch Franchises here for movie theatres cinemark Regal A._M._c. a._M._C. Vars. What I've been told is actually the biggest movie theater chain in the world and the United States but in my area like I just recently watched a youtube video from a guy called the company man and he actually talked about like how big A._M._C. is in their whole deal as they wanna be like within ten miles from everybody well? I'm at the nearest. A._M._C. is twenty four miles away. 'cause I looked up. The nearest regal is among <hes> one point three miles. The nearest cinemark is one point five miles. There actually used to be at A._N._C.. That's been closed for close to a decade in it was was wrong. I live now was about a about a mile one point four miles so the used to be that close but for some reason that location didn't do as well it was kind of kind of close to where the Regal is and I don't know of Regal push them out but I always thought Regal was one of the biggest change and then I introduced to cinemark and I kinda thought they were. I thought A._M._C. afterthought no. That's just my area but that going back around to it. All three of them have reward programs supposedly A._M._C. stubs is pretty pretty good. It is a great competition for a movie pass incident MIA and they offer. There's a monthly charge. I don't remember what it is three levels. There's free which doesn't give you as many perks. Obviously there's fifteen dollars a year which gives you more perks and then there's a monthly one and you can see three movies a week with with a plan. A three movies is weak is pretty sweet like if you're a hardcore moviegoer but A._M._C. didn't succeed in Canada like <hes> are so we we have the A._M._C. Forum which was the old <hes> Montreal Canadian's hockey arena which they converted to a cinema and within two years A._M._C. was no longer the ownership and cineplex took over so I guess maybe just a U._S.. Thing but they've not I've been seaside. They've had no successful push Canada there. They've acquired a lot of other franchises if you get a chance to check out the Companyman A._M._C. video it's I think we'll post within the past week or so because they talk a lot of bikes. You put within the last week because it was <hes> they talk about an game and how well concessions did for like all the movie theaters and A._M._c. a._m._C. broke records for concessions but going back to the whole centimeter thing like cinemark has there's too but theirs is is like around ten dollars a month. I get one free movie ticket per month with unlimited rollover which is cool and I get twenty dollars off <hes> anything that I buy there whether it be concessions or tickets and they used to have this thing. Do they still do but they've changed it. <hes> the rewards program where I get points for money that I spend there's there is a cap per day which I'm not a huge fan of and I hope they get out of that or are they have gotten out of that because I know that was the whole thing like oh we can only spend you can only get like twenty points a day for concessions and I'm like if I come to more than one theater like what if I do that like if I'm giving you the money there's you should be a cap on that shit but with the points they would <hes> you could use it to basically by movie movie swag which was Kinda cool like two big purchases. I did last year for Infinity War. I bought a avengers mug which is like it's all gold with the black avengers logo on it and the ticket that for free with pretty cool and then Amanda Amanda like a bottle for her there was none like living girl doll or whatever they're called but it was that none version and like I just use points and they send it to us for free sound like the dead doll or some shit like something like that yeah like I I could post a picture of it. It's like it's pretty cool. The fact that we got for free to there wasn't as many like savings options but recently I think because of the the pressure from movie pass and sending me other like all right we gotta like change stuff or like these things will go wayne. People just go all right. If I could go back to our old ways we need to keep people coming in so now they're doing <hes> to every two hundred and fifty points you can you don't you can spend it however you want but for two hundred and fifty points you get a free movie ticket and right now. I think we're close to a thousand but that's been built up for a little while so I'm curious to see how well that goes but and regal has its own thing to. I've haven't really been a big Fan of regal movie theater so I haven't gone as much but they all have. There's A._M._C. seems to be the really really good one but the fact that early the closest one is twenty four miles away hand. I don't feel like driving twenty four miles all the time when there's literally to within two miles and they're like opposite directions so I'd much rather do that in even known that sets a big distance to travel for just kind of a bonus rewards thing but like I'll go to the cinema market North Canton which is definitely I think further away than twenty four miles at the double check but <hes> I'll do that from time to time because of the seats are better. It's like when when we went it was the really nice like leather seats and the reclining features like cinemark closest to me is like nicer movie. The theater seats compared to what was out like ten years ago but it's not a recliner so it's obviously it's just it's just not as comfortable <unk> like shit on it but it's definitely true. Have you ever you haven't Alamo draft house near you or or have you into one. That's that's what I'm curious no. I don't even think we have those close to me nope. There's not many but that's that's like my ideal cinema with <hes> like old school when he goes to V._I._p.. No it's a little more expensive. It's eighteen plus <hes> he says says the crowd's a little more respectful. I don't know people still go on their phones. Even though I went to a late night showing of avengers but that that's my thing I we're far worse program. It said like I said it's called seen <hes> I think they changed July first business right now. It's a hundred points for a regular movie too when you buy a ticket and then a thousand points gets you a free film <hes> Three D. Movies one hundred and fifty points in an I max is like two hundred. Oh can I go see five maxes you get a free movie and then he gets coins blessed discount on concessions. Can you then bit up though like with mean Amanda I can. I can buy tickets for me and her and that all goes on my account. Oh Yeah no okay guy like ten tickets for the group. I get <hes> thousand awesome points all right nice. I looked it up. The A._M._C. is twenty four miles away like that's not air miles. That's if I drove there would take me about twenty four miles the Tinseltown <hes> cinemark that I like to go to is twenty two miles so I'll go that far for that theatre but then again I don't go that much use it all the time now that that one's close to me like literally within two miles. It's like yeah like Italy. It has to be a movie that I might year like I wanna go experience like when I went and seen endgame that's a theater I went to like. I went three. I went. I Max Nymex X._T.. 'cause I was I wanted to get the full experience and I wanted to be very comfortable and I don't regret it but he had it sucks that that's going away. That's Kinda now onto the theaters and me spending back to spending full price for tickets which is it's kind of fine. I'm learning that I've learned before to if I wanted to spend money out of pocket or if I had to if I go the first showing of the day it's all save a lot of money so it's it's just picking choosing my battles. That's it yeah no the I. I don't 'cause like when you were telling us about semi a- and movie pass on Mike. How are these companies making money? That's what I was thinking. He's going to be bankrupt in in year like a couple for years but the way I looked at it as I would much rather take those rides mob before you know it goes to shit like I'll I still save money especially with with me. Pass ten dollars a month for unlimited movies and we were going roughly once a week. It had a really nice convenience of like Oh we KINDA WANNA. Go see that movie fuck it. Let's do it now. It's like well. I WANNA spend the money and Kinda backed what used to be in the crazy. Thing is to new movie pass literally start hitting really bad issues right before the week that infinity working out sending me it was it was literally the closed down the week coming into endgame. Maybe they knew that they had enough subscribers..
