"In a situation like this where you have someone that has raised several red flags based on comments they've made or previous interactions with the police. And yet that wasn't enough to stop it. And I think this is flying in the face of conventional wisdom where people are saying we need more laws, and that's what's going to stop this. Well, so I think there's two distinct issues here. One is the mental health related issues that would drive someone to do this. And then there's the ongoing violence in Chicago, which is a criminal violence issue. So in both cases something that really is helpful. Something we've pushed for since I've been mayor is we have a campaign where we say, if you see something say something, we take everything that we get into our police department and we investigate it. Every single thing. And of course, most of them amount to nothing. But if your instincts tell you something's off, there's a likelihood that maybe something's off. And some of those tips have led to people who have been off of their medications and were spiraling out of control and we were able to get to them before they really hurt somebody. Because somebody actually said something and in some cases, they didn't say anything. They didn't say anything for a couple of days and then they informed the mayor, might have you told the police? Well, no, and then our police investigate. And we could have even and fortunately nothing happened, but this person had gotten more out of control because they hadn't taken their medications, right? So if you see something say something that's out of place that we can so it can be investigated, that is probably in a free society where we can't have a police officer everywhere inch. We can't be everywhere. They can't even in a small town may take them 5 minutes to get somewhere. Anything that you see and you let them know about is going to help head things off the past. And that's whether it's a mental health related issue or a criminal violence problem. On the criminal violence side, we need to keep violent criminals locked up. That's what's happening in Chicago. We have a catch and release program operated by Kim Fox that goes into effect statewide on January 1st that has allowed criminals to basically walk free and people with criminals with weapons illegally, a 1700% increase in ankle monitoring and you wonder why we're seeing more violent criminals. Well, that's what we see in our own park. We've been able to still manage to keep crime down in our own parts, the lowest it's been in 27 years, but our officers are very stretched to do what we work very hard and we're very proactive. All right folks, we're on with mayor Keith pico. He's the mayor of Orland Park, Illinois, not very far from highland park, Illinois, where this shooting happened, and we're going to continue with him and ask him a couple more questions. Mayor stick with us. We're going to have we may have some callers that have questions for you. I am rich Valdez. This is the Jim bohannon show. There's more to come straight ahead.

The bird would a museum here where i live and have all of the ears of vehicles and it is an amazing experience when you go to these places and they start off with the wooden wheel type vehicle all the way up to current day and everything in between it's like going through a times and like a time warp do you. I guess my question is how back in the order appraise business. Do you go with the vehicles. We all regular basis. I appraised brass. Eric cars to eighteen ninety. So they're all you know some of their original vehicles that you know from the from the day i remember that stands out the most one of the original portions a big wagon wheel type of vehicle but it was electric back in the day. Those those original cars. That portion was a chapter man and so one of their first cars was actually electric. So when you when you're in the the guy can only imagine some of the exotic you would say guess. What are the some of the most expensive ones that you've seen there. There's been a couple that are just like my dog. just i can't believe my eyes when i see it. So one of them would be one of my clients has what's called a worry. So back in the sixties furry did not produce any convertible cars and the local importer in the united states. Wanted to import believed that they would be easier to sell flory's if they had a convertible and keep in mind back in the day. I didn't have a jewish network or part serves and so one of the first cars. They came out with a car that he wanted import. It was called was was a it was actually a. It's called berlin at convertible so his organization was called the north american race team. So they those early cars. There's ten of them in called mark in a rt. And i got on praise one of those and client one in his other update on the radio basis. And it's probably in the million dollar range that's blow and i sit he thinking to myself. I'm looking at and speaking with an encyclopedia of knowledge as somebody who has started the business in this game. I'd love to. I learn about the genesis of the organization. How did they come back. Was purely on the sesame. I needed to stay employed. And my my. I've always pardon me. The appraisal business engineering background.

"Full blown panic disorder infobahn generalized anxiety disorder. And so first thing. I did after i started to get a sense for what was ailing him. I pull the of paper. I wrote down trigger behavior result and i said let me see if i can get this straight for him. His panic was driven literally driven by driving on the highway. So he would get these panic attacks on the highway driven by thoughts. I think it was like i'm speeding. Bullet he felt like he was going to get an accident. Those thoughts would drive him to avoid driving on the highway. Because that avoidance behavior could keep him from having panic attacks so there was a reward for his brain will quick. let's do. The trigger is walking towards the car knowing. I'm making something up but walking towards the car knowing is going to get on the freeway. Was that the trigger or was it getting in the car or was it actually thought That i'm going to get on the freeway later. It was. It started with him being on the highway. Driving and having thoughts come up in his head like oh no. I'm in a speeding bullet. So he'd be driving on the highway he'd have thought and he would get totally caught up in. That thought to the point where he became. He would get panic. Attacks kisser. The trigger is the thought. The behavior is the loop of the thought and the reward is what well he so. His behavior became avoidance where he would avoid driving on the highway. So that avoidance was that was a compensatory mechanism for him. Yet as you're as you're pointing out the mental behavior was he he would start getting caught up in the thoughts like. Oh no. i'm going to get caught in. You know. I'm going to get cards. Onum going to hurt somebody bubble up. That was that worrying that started to get out of control which then led to a panic attack. Yes i thought you know. The behavior was the worry at firms and then the result was a panic attack. That fed back into a secondary loop. Where the next time he had thought his brain would say. I'm not going there as an. I'm not getting on the highway. As and i'm not getting in my car. That's the behavior at this. Point was his compensatory mechanism. So these are these are two different but related behavior loops that he had does that. Make sense it does. And what is the reward of not getting the cars. It relief relief and avoidance of panic attacks so human panic attacks because he wasn't on the highway. Okay all right. I'm i'm totally with you. And so in that interloping Let's stick with the first one It's super simple. And then so. What are the three steps that you help people on wind the anxious loop that you just lend up so that the critical piece here is chew. I check to see what we're doing to try to fix or anxiety saying in our western world. We're just doing mentality. Great is great when you're going up a hill because it gets the hill yet. It's it's not so great when trying to work with mine because we can't just tell ourselves to stop worrying you. You can't just think your way out of anxiety and in fact thinking and planning department of the brain goes off line when we get anxious. The prefrontal cortex is no longer available. So not only does it not help but it's not available so i just highlight that because often people think oh i mapped out this habit now. Just got to stop it. I got avoid those triggers. which in fact just drives other habit Voids so here. I think bit of neuroscience is really critical which is to know that the only way to change a habit this any habit the only way to change the habit is to update the reward value of that behavior in our brain. I'll give a. I'll give a simple example and then we'll apply this to worrying so my lab just Just finished a study where we were working with people who are overeating and so what we did was we embedded this this awareness tool basically in our state right now to have people pay attention as they over eight and i was that as people pay attention when the overeat they'll realize it's not very rewarding because awareness is the only thing that updates rework value in in our brains and in fact it only took ten or fifteen times at somebody people somebody paying attention as they were overeating for that reward value to drop below zero to the point where they were shifting behavior. So we know that this is true. This has been known back into the nineteen seventies the first researchers that described this risk orland wagner very well known phenomenon so we apply that practice which is bring awareness in hell. People pay attention to the cause and effect relationship. So when we're worrying what are we getting from the worry. So i have people ask that simple question. What am i getting from this right. Is it solving the problem. No is keeping my family member safe. No whatever we think. The worrying is doing besides just occupying our minds and making us more anxious. We've got a really dive into experience and see the warnings. Actually just making us more anxious. It's not it's not helping us. That helps us become disenchanted with the behavior of worrying. Just like when we overeat and see that it's not helpful we become disenchanted from that behavior or smoke a cigarette or procrastinate or whatever i think i'm tripped up on one piece because there's a you made which is we can't think our way of out of anxiety and then i hear you saying if you have a thought which is to examine your thought. The utility of the thought. Then you'll dissipate the anxiousness so help me understand where. I'm getting tripped up there. So this is a critical distinction so.

So these are these are two different but related behavior loops that he had does that. Make sense it does. Then what is the reward of not getting the cars. It relief relief and avoidance of panic attacks so human panic attacks because he wasn't on the highway. Okay all right. i'm totally with you. And so in that interloping Let's stick with the first one It's super simple. And then so. What are the three steps that you help people on wind the anxious loop that you just lend up so that the critical piece here is chew. I check to see what we're doing to try to fix or anxiety saying in our western world. We're just doing mentality. Great is great when you're going up a hill because it gets the hill yet. It's it's not so great when trying to work with mine because we can't just tell ourselves to stop worrying you. You can't just think you're way out of anxiety and in fact thinking and planning department of the brain goes off line when we get anxious. The prefrontal cortex is no longer available. So not only does it not help but it's not available so i did that because often people think oh i mapped out this habit loop now just got to stop it. I got avoid those triggers. Which in fact just drives other habit voids so here i think bit of neuroscience is really critical which is to know that the only way to change a habit this any habit the only way to change the habit is to update the reward value of that behavior in our brain. I'll give a. I'll give a simple example and then we'll apply this to worrying so my lab just Just finished a study where we were working with people who are overeating and so what we did was we embedded this this awareness tool basically in our ear right now to have people pay attention as they over eight and i was that as people pay attention when the overeat they'll realize it's not very rewarding because awareness is the only thing that updates rework value in in our brains and in fact it only took ten or fifteen times at somebody people somebody paying attention as they were overeating for that reward value to drop below zero to the point where they were shifting behavior. So we know that this is true. This has been known back into the nineteen seventies the first researchers that described this risk orland wagner very well known phenomenon so we apply that practice which is bring awareness in hell. People pay attention to the cause and effect relationship. So when we're worrying what are we getting from the worry. So i have people ask that simple question. What am i getting from this right. Is it solving the problem. No is keeping my family member safe. No whatever we think. The worrying is doing besides just occupying our minds and making us more anxious. We've got a really dive into experience and see the warnings. Actually just making us more anxious. It's not it's not helping us. That helps us become disenchanted with the behavior of worrying. Just like when we overeat and see that it's not helpful we become disenchanted from that behavior or smoke a cigarette or procrastinate or whatever i think i'm tripped up on one piece because there's a you made which is we can't think our way of out of anxiety and then i hear you saying if you have a thought which is to examine your thought. The utility of the thought. Then you'll dissipate the anxiousness so help me understand where. I'm getting tripped up there. So this is a critical distinction so.

Haven't heard back from the lottery about my good idea of capping the winning it 50 million and giving it to more people. We have not heard back yet from the C T. A So if you were listening around 9 45 yesterday, I just told the story about what it was like when? On Friday as I was coming in to work on the Red line. I got to the North Clybourn stop South bound and a couple of people walked by me and then began to mug the two people nearest to the train doors. As the train was coming to a stop. They grabbed the phone from a woman. They punched a gentleman in the face a couple of times, took phone out of his pocket and stepped out. They were gone in a flash. And my anger has been that I have since the pandemic and I continue to ride the C T a every single day of every single week With some exceptions. I was riding my bike in the summer a lot. Once in a blue moon I drive, But today I actually drove But yesterday and the day before I was obviously on the train, I would say nine days out of 10. I'm on the red line. And nine days out of 10. The people that are on the red line have to be. They just don't have many options. Not everybody can ride a bike. Not everybody has the money for Parking in a car. So there's a trapped audience in those cars and the C T A does not seem to notice or care. I'm sure they do. It's bad for business. And these are people with hearts that people that work with C T. A Lady that works at my station waves to me, and it's so kind one day I forgot my mask, and she gave me one of hers that people are good people, but is an institution. They seem to be indifferent to the fact that not only are those places feeling unsafe with covert, because not everybody's wearing masks, and a lot of people are sleeping. On the car's laying out on the cherish because this is how many people on them anymore. But they don't seem to appreciate the fact that that also makes us vulnerable to crime there. There's less strength and numbers this fewer people on the cars. So the Ratio of unsafe people because of co vid to safe people is not as good as it would have been. And it doesn't feel that safe is a ratio for just general crime. We reached out to three different numbers at the sea to yesterday. They have not gotten back to us. We tweeted at them and posted to them. When I put my thing up on Facebook, and we have not yet heard back from them, we will And they'll say something. But until we start to see more police or more CT, a security on the platforms and on the train cars, which never happens, We're not going to feel safe, and here's why the Chicago Chamber should get involved. We also reached out to the Chicago Chamber of Commerce. You want people to come back downtown? You better make them feel safe getting in and out. Hey, Stuart are legendary. Great news men here for a long time on Facebook said if the city and so I'm trying to get people downtown because I work in the city, and I come downtown every day, and it's the prettiest city in America. It's a Jule. It feels so empty in this plenty of parking available. But Dave said if the city ever expects people to return to North bound on the red line, Right? Like if you want to get people to go up to Wrigley or up to Evanston, or if you want to get me to go south to M s I or maybe the Obama library when that opens up. Lot of public transportation opportunities. There. You want people to go north and south or west to the United Center. You can take the l or the bus there. Then you better go to the Frank Lloyd Wright house. You know, Park. If you want people to do that, you have to make people feel safe. And right now it is not. It is absolutely not. And and I just wish they'd return a phone call. I mean, throw something up about that. Because you feel so isolated when you're sitting in that car, and you think, OK, I'm sure I'll get through this. But this sucks. This is no way to run a public transportation system. They told us that losing a million dollars a day. I don't know how they're going to do it. I don't know where they're going to find the money. That's their problem. They need to fix it. And the business community of Chicago should get involved in this, too. Um And a lot. Can I say this then? A lot of you are saying, that's it. I'm never coming down.
Photography Book Recommendations
"I love it. When readers asked me a specific question that. I haven't really given a lot of thought to because it causes me to have to think and to share things with you. So here we go. Here's an email I received dear, Brooks I hope you don't mind if I ask for a bit of your time but I'm just beginning photography and looking for some good books to take my work to the next level I'm not talking about technical stuff. That's all over the place it Amazon. But I'd love to find something more like your podcasts on the creative side of photography. Can you recommend some good books I should read? This is from a reader named Darrell. Will Darrell that is a fascinating question. and. It caused me to have to go back into my library and really look at. The books that I own I, probably have at last count about five thousand books in my personal library on art and photography. And you know. How do you narrow that down? But nonetheless, your email prompted me to do so and I think I've got a list here that I would be comfortable in recommending of feel a little guilty in little hesitant because. There are so many books that I didn't put on the list that have been influential in my photography. But I think all of these that I'm about to share with you or ones that you could develop a really solid foundation for your creative life with the ideas that are encapsulated in these books. And I've divided the list into two groups well, three groups really but. Mainly the two groups are the five short book recommendations for All photographers. And then I felt like I wanted to put together a list of longer books that need. Study as that are probably the kind of thing that will take decades to really absorb because they're bigger books but also because they have so many ideas. The five short books are ones that I think you could all approach fairly quickly and you would find them well worth your time. They're all relatively thin books, but as has so often been said be careful of thin books because they're dangerous once they are so distilled. To the essence of the ideas. That they're deceptively simple looking. But when you get into him, you find out that there's a tremendous amount of meat and potatoes, and that certainly exists with these five short books the first of which is. On being photographer by David Hernan Bill J I suspect many many of you listening podcast or already familiar with on being photographer partly because we published it. And you're already plugged into lens work through these podcasts. So you've probably heard of Bill J. and David hearn, his friend was magnum photographer. They approach me with the idea of having. US, published this book. Oh, Gosh twenty years ago now, and it's It's never been out of print since then it's just a terrific idea and a terrific book in this book, if you're not familiar with it, basically although build offers plenty of his opinions, he functions more as the interviewer for David and it's more like a conversation between these two lifelong friends about David's ideas about being a photographer and the pragmatics of being photographer not f stops and shutter speeds and not necessarily esoteric gallery stuff but just the life of being a photographer and what that's involved with and so many good practical ideas. So that's the first one again a thin book but packed with great ideas on being photographer, David Hurn and Bill Jay. The next one is same thing very thin book. It looked like you can read it quickly it will require the rest of your life to really understand it and it's called art and fear. By David Bales and Ted Orland Ted Orleans was pretty well known I. Think because he was an ansel Adams darkroom assistant early on and he's been around photography for a longtime David. Bayles also very smart guy the two of them have had a lifelong friendship and they put down their ideas about. The art life and the difficulties of the art life in this small book art and fear, but it is so packed with ideas.
The Mid Night Club street racers
"Today we have. I'm excited about this is a good one. This is. One of the coolest cars things ever. Yeah. We have very so secretive who topic you guys today we are talking about a racing group known. As the Midnight Club, a midnight club. Yes. The fastest racing team fastest street racing team in Japan got comic book made after him. Yeah. Thanks to an in-depth investigation by wonderful writer. Joseph thank you Joseph. We're able to bring you the truth but the Midnight Club It's worth pointing out the most the articles refining them in that club are based on the wikipedia article. That's it. That's journalism and yet unfortunately for the vast majority of them, the information on the wikipedia page has been purposely crafted to mislead people to protect the real members, identity God, their the aluminum body it's insane. That means a large amount of what people think they know about the club's actually wrong deliberately. So but FRONTENAC. Because we're super excited to share the real story behind them in that club. All right. So to know the story of the Midnight Club, you have to know nineteen eighties Japan throughout the nineteen eighties Japan was experiencing one of the most significant financial bubbles of all time. The entire bubble was similar to the one that we had in the US in two, thousand eight and the one that is currently taking place in China the post world. War. Two Economy of Japan had encouraged citizens to save their money causing an unbelievable surplus of savings The banks had no problem meeting their reserve requirements stays thanks to the massive cash surplus, which in turn allow the banks to engage in much more lenient. Lending behavior does this sound familiar? Yeah. Okay. Good. There are also many America yeah. It's like how it was ten years ago now, but that's a crash. What we're saying here is just like after World War. Two there's this culture in Japan where the government was like just save your money save your money save your money. and. The reason that these cars happened. Is because. The companies looked around and they were like Orlands ultra-modern. Yeah. We could. We could make something really cool stuff and they could buy it, and so they just started making twin turbo six cylinder behemoths out. We will get there. There are also many government programs intended to weaken the US dollar against the Japanese yen through means of financial deregulation. The combination of excess liquidity in the banks and financial deregulation led to a massive economic boom known as Japan's economic miracle prices on domestic stocks and real estate had risen to an all time high tripling in value tripling tripling in value between nineteen, eighty, five and nineteen eighty-nine wealthy parents could afford to buy their children. The nicest sports cars Japan. Had offer sports cars were absolutely everywhere in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. Japan. The Best of all, they were dirt cheap a new Nissan Silvia s thirteen q only cost roughly seventy five hundred US dollars about eighteen thousand dollars today. You imagine getting a Sylvia. Can like you can't get a Sylvia for eighteen grand I mean you can could, but like a clean one. That's what they're they sell for now. They haven't appreciate all in the big picture. It was the Japanese bubble that led to the birth of all the street racing in the country I am hooked kids loved the idea of driving a fast car on the cheap in the early eighties some of the more popular choices of course, Celica supra. They weren't the marked for supers- yet CELICA SUPRA. Eighty sixes s thirty s one thirties. Arek. Sevens Nissan skylines Sylvia again. And Yeah since they all had easy money from their parents all they would do dart onto the highway in Tomei or one gone and started zipping around looking for trouble the Tomei highway became notorious for heavy duty street racing.
Why Fast Fashion Needs A Makeover
"In the last fifteen years, production of clothing has doubled, and at the same time, the number of times something is worn, has haft now that means that over eleven million garments landfill every week in the UK alone. Ultimately the novelty that fashion promises causing irreversible harm to both planet and people. This week's food for thought sees presenter and climate activist Venetia Amana. Join me to discuss why it's time for the wasteful fashion industry to clean up his act highlight Venetia Halloween. I think today's episode has been so I've Jew and I. Now I've been wanting to record it with you for so long. I think in a way we kickoff by discussing the fact that fashions wastefulness I mean. It's almost on a par with single. Use Plastic really if we're looking at the impact that it has. Yet it is. It's hugely not only wasteful industry, but also polluting industry. It's actually kind of looking to get into sustainability and thinking about the planet. functions of really good way to think about it, because it's very accessible way of thinking how a piece of clothing. Goes from from the US ultimately when you when you grow, grow, crops or something caught in, it comes from the S.. And then it's Picton. Soon and. All of these different things all these different prices which make up the supply chain before it's packed and delivered in lands on your doorstep Orlands in the shop future to buy but yet it. It's a huge. Carbon footprint the fashion industry. It's supposed to be one of the top two or three polluting industries and yeah, in terms of waste it's it's incredibly wasteful. we live in a timely fashion still of as. Something disposable fashion is incredibly cheap now and in other places, and because it's so cheap way often fail like it doesn't hold much significance, so we send a lot of close to landfill and a lot of clothing incinerated. All, at the same time, it's really really important is Barry Mind is that? Someone somewhere is paying. The paper will making a clothes or so, if not paid a living wage and eighty percent of them a female when we think about women's rights and bang feminists, we have to think about that with all cloudy, because we want to support all women right, and we want to support the woman who making all clouds goodness I mean. So many connections to what you've just said that intense of what I've done in my previous life. I'm thinking when I was at university and. I used to shop with these such and websites where claiming was so cheap, and I never made I never made a connection that it came from the earth I would I never even thought to the fact that impact to the environment and I definitely probably what I know I didn't. I didn't think about the chain of people and somebody somewhere that was involved with the price of making his clients and I. Think what you're doing on social media, environment is fabulous. You've recently raised Alana's with charity campaigns. You've been at the forefront to claim suggesting that the bronze behind them greenwashing customers. Could you delve into that I? A little bit? Yeah, absolutely. greenwashing as something that we say a lot in fashion, especially at the moment comes from the time whitewashing, which is basically when white people kind of whitewash industries like film, industry's takeover, different ways and Often, it's symbol creations when we as white people kind of commodified live. By coaches make are I might try and day and don't give credit where credit J. it's also kind of a marketing ploy, and it's the same with greenwashing companies often kind of telling us trying to tell us that during something good when they already notes. See this recently with kind of plastic auto companies telling US everything's okay, because that bottles are made from recycled plastic when Rabi. To bustles if we're in a position to do so like you know hair in. The U. K. is just refill will to right. It's like a much more money during it so with function. We see Fush Bruns. Greenwash. In lots of different ways and I, yeah I I've I've taken to social media to cool when it because. I have a when I want to use it and kind of tired of the nonsense, so bronze like eight am and Zora have a kind of conscious collections, so they'll bring out a small range of clothes that a made from various things like orange juice, pope and unical tears, or whatever is. And they tell us let's go, and I'm not gonNA deny that and say it's bad. It is good we should be using. Natural fibres when we might close, but the problem with Sutton fashion bruns. Is that sure that using a kind of planet friendly planet friendly dies and materials, but what about the people making the clothes and also? The share amount of clothing that them making doesn't make up for the good that I think the goods that doing concert. No point, not percent. If their entire business H. M. so is a drop in the ocean for want of a better phrase. On Yeah. I mean recently. We've seen a lot of charity in slogan, T. Shirts. During, the pandemic and this is this is very much a kind of. nuanced debates, and I I take quite a hard stance on it, but I I also really appreciate that. We have to look at both
The Aesthetic Moment
"In the nineteen eighties. I took a workshop from David Bales. Who along with Ted Orland is one of the authors of that really terrific called art and fear? We had a long weekend to work with. David doesn't ever so who were attending the workshop and he began the workshop with something. I've never forgotten. He asked us why we make art. And we went around the table and offered are somewhat stumbling excuses about what motivated us to WanNa make art. He then proposed that all of us were essentially the weird ones in society. He put it this way not not to insult but just to be more clear and more precise he said. Do you realize how many people there are in the world who have a camera who have no compulsion whatsoever to create artwork and so the obvious question is what makes us different. What makes us want to become artists with the camera? And since we're a relatively small group of people compared to all those who own cameras doesn't make sense that we're kind of the odd ones. Everybody else is normal. But we're the ones who feel compelled and he proposed that we needed to think carefully about why we wanted to make artwork. He didn't answer that question. He left it for each of us to stew on it and to come up with their own answers. And it's taken me many many years but I think I have a better understanding now of why it is that I wanna make art. Let me ask it in a slightly different way. What is it that we seek in the process of being an artist? Well some people seek fame or money or accolades. But I suspect that most of you listening to my podcasts are not interested in fame money or accolades unless they fell in your lap. I mean we'RE NOT GONNA TURN IT DOWN. But that's not the reason we pursue our art because if it was we'd probably be doing different kinds of things photographic -ly than we do so for most of us were seeking something else. What is it that we seek from our creative life? I'M GONNA go out on a little bit of a limb here and explain what I think. The answer is for me. It may or may not be an answer for you but nonetheless here it is for me in a nutshell. What I'm trying to accomplish with my art life is to have a certain kind of experience. I kind of got onto this idea with cardiac Brussels. The decisive moment in his thoughts about photography. I have different term. I call it the aesthetic moment. That's really why I'm photographic artist. I seek the aesthetic moment and I suppose in order to make that clear. I kind of need to explain what I mean by the aesthetic moment. The best example I can think of that isn't about photography is probably Haiku. So let me begin by talking a little bit about Haiku with a couple of examples. The great translator of Japanese Haiku of course is our H. Blythe. He did a wonderful series of books. There's a four volume set called Haiku. Each book is a different season and he also did a two volume set called the history of Haiku. I have loved these books now for forty years and I go back to them from time to time and RH Blythe says quote. The nature of Haiku cannot be rightly understood until it's realized that they imply a revolution in our everyday life in ways of thinking. Close quote that is to say the aesthetic moment. The aesthetic moment is the moment when we have a shift of consciousness. I I tend to think of it this way. It's a sudden and off an unexpected shift in awareness when the everyday act of seeing becomes a fleeting but meaningful glimpse at some sort of deeper understanding. That's a very coarse way of trying to explain an if you've had the experience you probably know what I'm getting at if you haven't had it maybe a couple of Haiku will help so here's a good example of the shift of consciousness in talking about in this Haiku a brushwood gate and for a lock It's nothing more than a moment of recognition. When all of a sudden something is seen little differently is seen unexpectedly when in this case the snail is not normally the lock. But we kind of see it that way because we're not gonNA go through the brushwood gate because we don't want to disturb the snail and so the snail becomes the lock. Here's another one in the old will. A fish leaps up at a net. The sound of the water is dark. That Haiku brings forth in me that aesthetic moment. I'm not thinking about the water. I'm not thinking about The dark but somehow the fish leaping brings us the darkness of the water to my attention and I have a moment when I'm sort of separated from normal consciousness and I have an aesthetic feeling for what is happening that I would not have had. If in this case the fish had not leapt up at nat so that experience sparked something in the person who wrote this Haiku. I think it was ISA but I'm not exactly sure. Remember that right. But it sparked an aesthetic moment and became the genesis of the Haiku. Here's another one. The Autumn Wind is blowing. We are alive and CONC- each other you and I I have this idea here of two people who've maybe spent the day together maybe they've been photographing together. And all of a sudden the autumn wind blows. And you realize the person that you're with is there. In the moment they become even more alive and even more real than they have prior to that that somehow there was that shift of consciousness that happened when the wind was blowing and the connection was made one last one the bright autumn moon on the Tatami Mat the shadow of the pine tree here again I visualized sitting in some old Japanese hut somewhere. And here's the bright autumn moon and with no other lights around all of a sudden because of this bright moon I see the shadow of the pine tree on the floor. And there's a connection now suddenly between the moon the pine tree the light and me and it's more alive than it would be if I wasn't paying attention so once again that sudden and often unexpected shift in awareness when the everyday act of seeing becomes a fleeting but meaningful glimpse of understanding of connectedness of really becoming aware in the moment. Lots of other photographers of talked about this. And it often comes up with a phrase. I've never quite sure I understand. And that is the Japanese term. Wabi Sabi I I don't I. I can't speak to that because I'm not really sure I understand what that really means but I do know the moment when looking at something ordinary I experienced that. Flip of wariness. Now I I'm not very verbal and I'm not a poet so I I don't do Haiku so for me. The attempt to express that aesthetic moment takes on the form of visual art hands on photographer. But one thing I do know is you can have that breakthrough to the aesthetic moment in all kinds of possible things in photography it can happen in the field

Canadian PM Trudeau says rail blockades have to end
"Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau was forced to plead for patience as he dealt with blockades of rail lines across the country this week the disrupted shipments of everything from oil to passenger trains for more we go to Bloomberg Daniel vocals in Toronto thanks Bob rail traffic across Canada ground to a halt this week as protests against a natural gas pipeline in British Columbia stalled the flow of goods and created a crisis for the federal government Bloomberg's Kevin Orland joins me from Calgary Kevin thanks for coming on the show thanks for having me on the surface this is about one aboriginal community in BC which appears to be at odds even within itself over just one natural gas pipeline project how did things escalate so much further that's right so there is a group of the hereditary chief of the wet sweat and indigenous community in northern British Columbia that we had blockaded the coastal Gascoyne pipeline and stops workers from from building up pipeline really this month a couple dozen of them were arrested for these blockades so that that those arrested by some fairly dramatic footage and other environmental groups and and activists around the country sort of took up at college and have been protesting in solidarity with this thought that within the the what's what and tried and and how disruptive has all of this been economically so far both been pretty significant we had there was one estimate this week where an economist pared back his forecast for economic growth for the fourth quarter but point three of a percentage point down to one point five percent to one point eight percent so it's significant and this is also still early it depends on how long this lasts yeah obviously major disruptions for cargo passenger trains have been affected you know a number of of business leaders have been warning that this could be a major black eye for Canada's international reputation and in terms of whether or not we're seen as a good place to invest and do business you are an ex Pat living in Canada what do you make of that assertion well it it's it's it's hard to imagine that this doesn't give some investors pause when they're looking at with making decisions about whether to invest in Canada or or not you know already the energy industry here has been through some competitiveness challenges with opposition to oil pipelines that's really prevented the the dentistry here from expanding output and that's because a lot of you know foreign companies to sell out of the oil oil industry here we've at one point there was more than thirty billion and and the Canadian assets that were sold by foreign companies so it's hard to see how this would help that situation
Universal Studios Was Built on an Indigenous Village Site
"Did you know that universal studios was built on an indigenous village site. The Hollywood sign somewhere around here over the hill. Pickup up there and then the Hollywood sign is somewhere on this back side of it. Were walking around the entrance to Universal Studios. My name is Timothy are. I'm a citizen of the Abandon Mission Indians. I'm a video and I worked for my trip. I am born and raised here in San Fernando Manda Valley which is the North End of Los Angeles. If you look at how high we are. That's why I get so loss. You can't see anything on top of the hill. Not really a walking walking city not too many hills think we go this way right in front of universal versus studios that theme park over here in Hollywood in. There's like literally a red carpet that leads guests right up to the entrance to the park when you think about about locations theme parks like Disneyland. Six flags and Universal Studios Lot of people don't know that traditional uses of the land when you look at the theme park park place a fantasy too. You have hogwarts in you have the jaws ride and their places that are surreal. The reality is if you look at the history of this place. Is this this. These are traditional homelands of indigenous folk. They're located here and still located here in Los Angeles County. Universal Studios does lay on on a traditional village. Sigh of coins and my family is located. And we we come from Encino. which is you can see right down from from the hill so these lands used to be ours? If you wanted to say it straight just come here and enjoy it but it had to be taken away. Ah I to be enjoyed. But yeah like if you look at it. Anywhere in Los Angeles County and specially my tribes were located kinda regionally. Here we have village sites are here and you see a lot of the land has been disturbed. It's not what it used to be so you could take to consideration digging in the ground breaking that had to take place for these things things to happen so there is a backside to seeing places that people get to have fun and even as a kid growing up you know it was always right here so it is cheaper within Disneyland and it was So it was pretty easy for my family to come up here and take us. I used to have find us at escape. It takes a lot to rethink. I think that in how can you save yourself and feeling bitter towards that and I think that's where I'm at personally when I look at these places now it's hard to enjoy them. mm-hmm everything about La is about Hollywood. Hollywood life you know I went to school in Hollywood too so like I was part of that. Like oh there's the industry here so you know there's TVs get made here. All of that is here and then you know when you start talking to people you know. I work in the industry with always asked him. Where'd you come from and it's never ever? La It makes me feel so unique to say from here. I would like people to think of when I come away is who is here I and and who is still here now. You know there is a lot of significance just knowing that and what's the story of the city and there's apps now even and do that say whose land you're on Look that up. I want people to come here with a historical curiosity that so paved so developed. Unfortunately we're not OUGHTA try. The has a cultural centre. We just want them to come. Maybe visit us or maybe call us her or look us up a lye anything do anything before you come here to just be curious you know having a place. Universal Studios acknowledged the original people's here. I think we'll be a great step because there are a lot of tourists here right. You know whose home you're going into so when you drive around you don't even think twice about these certain places like street names. You know the names Cohen A- But they're from indigenous. Names there from native names you know so and growing up here in La you know myself was kind of a stereotype going through middle school. You tell people because everyone ask what are you doing. I'd say I'm this this young American and you just get always thrown those. Stereotypes prototypes. TV You know or they do like a racist. You know like a sound any stereotype that you got from growing up watching cartoons like Peter Pan or watching. TV shows where all the Indians die so middle school. I ended up not saying I was native American more because because it was so embarrassing when you hit seventh grade. There's a little paragraph about the people here and you get a little map and I remember seeing that map and feeling so proud. Tov Him was on it was it. You know I told my mom about the map. And then she told my grandfather who was chief for the at the time and he came to the school with my uncle talked about us as people talked about his presently people. What are we doing is people? I felt like that was such a power move like we're not Su- paragraph in a history book where people here and we're here to talk to you. This industry working in is hard in a lot of ways because of the share types that propelled you see. These native writers indigenous writers. Come in. They're changing that right. They're coming in and saying like rocking. Just tell that story you know like that. Historically that's wrong and that hurts us we're gonNA tell this story from Orlands in with our voice so being now in this industry feels very a powerful and it feels very very important that was to top VM. videographer Timothy or analysis. This is unreserved on. CBC Radio One Sirius Xm one sixty nine and native voice one. I Roseanne dear child today. We're talking all about decolonizing. Hollywood God and recognizing the indigenous lands that La is built upon still ahead. California actually has always been the home of indigenous people Historically pre contact pre European time. It actually was the home to more tribes and more indigenous vision of people than all of the United States put
Can the Dutch save the world from the danger of rising sea levels?
"The Netherlands is the best protect data in the world with centuries of experience in holding back the floodwaters as climate change causes sea levels to rise can touch expertise. Help Save the world cities that are most at risk or think so bad that they will struggle to even save themselves themselves. Simon Cooper has looked into this question and he's with me now to discuss what he discovered. Hi Simon Esta so about a third of the Netherlands. ORLANDS is below sea level including the capital Amsterdam. You grew up in Leiden that also below sea level and were you aware of the risk of flooding. When you're a child ounce on facial redness blow sea level? I must say I never checked during my childhood. There's also a lot of land. That's not below sea level but susceptible to river flooding. WHO's three great rivers above the Rhine and in the Netherlands on my Johnny's to the sea? So you'll always closer river all see. I mean I grew up in Leiden as as you say. Which is I? Don't know about five miles from the same and it's reclaimed. Glands that Western Netherlands is where most of the population lives. So you know very large. Pasta appellation are most of the economy is they're threatened by the see below sea level and the funny thing is that because the Dutch of being so good since the disastrous Austral slaughtered nineteen fifty. Three of keeping the. I'm ribs it pay you better. Think about it in your daily life. I mean they're canals and you got fishing and did you learn to swim as soon as you can. Because it's unsafe to live in the Netherlands. Not being able to swim but generally you just don't think about the threat of flooding the Wolf's experts. I spoke to. This story complained that the population has always complacent. They assume the Netherlands would always be safe from the walls have given the geographical factors. That play is it the case. That's dot. History is littered with flooding disasters up to a certain point. I think you mentioned the last very serious floods Richard in the nineteen fifties. Yeah I mean. The Dutch spent centuries trying to deal with the wolves so plenty of the ELDA. The Roman author was stationed. There I think is a tribune in the first century idea and he he says look at being flooded all the time like wall miserable limbs by the fire of mud and it's just terrible and for centuries being flooded and people drowning was possibly cost of living in that area so they reclaim line from the seat. I built dikes. They did the best to maintain the bikes. It didn't always go well so for example. twenty-one thousands thousands of people were killed in floods maintaining the dykes is always sort of what history is being about. It wasn't always done well. So nineteen fifty three is the walls showed literally you get these disastrous floods kill about eighteen hundred people know. Madeleine's another three hundred dollars. Nason England something there. I think the English would largely forgotten by the doctor having forgotten that so often the fifty three flood the government says right never again and they set up a commission. The Commission says you have to build incredibly expensive defenses and it's going to take decades and cost in tax in this country that has been left low by the wall which is ready poll with people emigrating to the United States Australia and the DOT com says yes. We'll just do it because we have this again. One of the things you write about in the Steve Dunn for fifty we can magazine is something something called the Paul. D'Amato can you just tell us a little bit about what that is. Yes Oh upholder is a piece of reclaimed linemates flatlined and when you take a train through the Netherlands you see everywhere. He's very flat fields often. I see some cows grazing next to the cow will be a massive office block. Is the Docs use every inch of space in the small country and canals to carry off the water and the thing about the pulled. Ramon del as they reclaimed this line but the line was incredibly vulnerable because is one flood and everybody drown us so each district had to maintain its own dykes and in the Netherlands centuries yet terrible religious disputes and people killing each each other promising Catholic woes from fifteen sixty eight and so there was always political division but in the end it didn't really mice what religion you. You had some tightening talk so they created the system of negotiation compromise. You know the local weather being elected and sitting in committees about what's going on with our dyke and so it creates this very politics that exists today of compromise in pragmatism. You had to set the religious stuff and the audiology one side in the end. You just tattoo wet together to survive and mostly things were managed very well so today politics. I mean I think of it as a one party system you have have different policies but that was in coalition with each other and one full more another and so whether or the sensor ride. BVD All green left. All the centre-left peeve on the you're always having to negotiate and deal with each other in a pragmatic way and the Dutch coal that pulled him Odell and the golden so pulling means to sit down and hammer out a compromise compromise that nobody is going to get excited about it. I mean it just fearless. Though as we're seeing sea levels rise that kind of model of cooperation is going to be more and more needed around the world but I mean the other thing overseas money. Do we know roughly how much the Dutch spend each year on flood defences well money. I mean the surprise me. When I was researching the story money in a way is the easy bit I mean? The doctor saves money by spreading their spending. On dykes over seven hundred years. He is but nowadays they spend about a billion euros year on flood defences which given the most of the country's susceptible to floods is where you know bad it's commit more than north point one percents of GDP so the average person just really doesn't exit and obviously doing it from scratch like New Orleans. Now I mean New Orleans which is sort of similar bliss situations of the Netherlands has spent fifteen billion or US suspect fifteen billion levies etcetera. Protecting New Elaine. Since two thousand and five but if that's the cost of the survival of a place is actually not that bad so wealthy countries can do this. The biggest problem is that they don't have pulled a modell they don't have this. Pragmatic take compromise long-term spending which the Dutch you spend on dykes even when there's no crisis even when you haven't been flooded in decades you just do it all the time we know in the US. For example Donald it is just a big problem with spending any infrastructure so they weren't even on potentially life-saving infrastructure. Like dykes levees. So you have to think long term which is the the problem in many societies whereas spending don ends political rhythm so the new government the new president will spend something in the next one more of us. The ducks don't do that. Doesn't Marie Masters and government money got spent and the other thing is that you have to have a national program. You can't say will you happen to live in the two square gweat miles. That's most susceptible to flooding. So you must find the couple of billion it will take you to protect yourself against the wall Cher. No this is a national thing so we have have a national plan and national taxes to raise the money for wo suspending. Even can be a bit more if you live in. wosa threatened district broadly the whole population pays and the other thing. Is that good defenses ready. What when it's a national strategy because if you build a dike or Levee to protect your factory or your neighborhood ed or your apartment building and you see that in Miami where some buildings after on seawall then you're actually endangering the neighbors because the voices will hit your seawall? I'm be diverted to the neighbors so you can't have some people protecting themselves and others not which is very common along the US coasts. The ducks done do that. The whole whole country is protected so I came away thinking countries like the. US can folded countries like Bangladesh. Perhaps not but they don't have the long term they don't don't have the culture of negotiation and compromise and they don't have the National Corporation that you need to do this successfully. Some of these places have been turning to the Dutch asking asking for advice. Is that right. Yeah so I went to the Moslems kidding which is the big storm surge barrier that protects the rouse Ma'am Haba one Dutch official described it smears the front door of the Netherlands so is always waiting to close if the waters rise. Three macy's they haven't since it was completed twenty three years ago so so a lot of foreign visitors come to the Muslim caring because more and more cities around the world thinking of building storm surge. Barrett's the Italians are thinking about it. Venice has some protection protection. Maybe not enough George. Bush was recent visit. He's the Texas Land Commissioner. I think he's the nephew of George. W and George. Bush is trying to think of ways to protect Houston and ironically it's oil refineries from the rising waters which caused caused by the carbon emissions made by those are refineries arrays and so they come to the Netherlands. Look at these models of what the Dutch do and see if they could work in their own countries and to some degree the model model is the easy bit. The infrastructure is the easy but you can't build storm surge barrier but you have to keep monitoring dotting its spending on maintaining it and also so given the wolves are rising checking every couple of years. How long will my barrier last? Are we going to need to build a whole new on. We're GONNA need to build Out Bigger because if you build it for say a meter of rising waters it might not be able to save the water rises one and a half nieces and apart from the Moslem carrying this other flood defence strategy being used by the Dutch. Yeah I mean it's a whole system of dikes. If you woke woke along the seacoast you don't see the waterfront properties that you see in American real estate ads. Where you'll deck overlooks the ocean? And The Netherlands. Nobody lives CBS on the beach. You have the beach and then you have the Junes. which are these man made hills of signed that stopped the C- coming in and you can only live behind the junes? Then you have these sluices which can open or close depending so the real Saddam Hall. The Muslim king is open because as I was standing by the catering watching ships coming in and out on the way to Britain and elsewhere and is able to close. It's like a door that opened it's able to close it's the Walsh's rise so it's a very flexible and complex system the difference in every place in the country but that
The Dublin Digital Identity Project
"For this week's podcast. We'll be discussing discussing the very interesting project called the Dublin Digital Identity Project and I'm very pleased to have doug McCullough chief information officer her for the city of Dublin in Ohio USA. Doug thank you for joining us today. Could you please give our listeners. Quick introduction on yourself sure so my name is Doug McCullough chief information officer for the city of Dublin Ohio. It is a small city really a suburb on the North West Corner of Columbus Ohio which is in the middle of the state I am a private sector guy and I may government guy. I've worked for four different state of Ohio agencies and two cities in the united estates and I really love municipalities into innovation into smart cities. I'm into smart ability obviously into blockchain. A it just really interested in sort of emerging technologies and how I can help public sector organizations integrate them into their daily operations Excellent excellent and I think also inside you're going to be able to share with our audience later in this podcast so straight off the bat as it has cost me here in Intra entre blocks. Could you please explain to our listeners. What is blockchain? And how does it work. Well I'm sure that many have gone before me and failed. I probably will fail as well and I take no credit for getting it right but I will say that I can tell you what it is to me and from my perspective because this is one of the most simple technologies while also being one of the most complex and I don't want to oversimplify it but you Kinda have to a small Description I see. blockchain obtain is a technology infrastructure innovation that combines existing technologies like databases peer to peer networks encryption distributed computing algorithms to form a different way of distributing compute data storage and data security so in its most basic form it works by recording pieces pieces of data into structures. We've taken to calling blocks. The definition of these structures is such that they exist within a chain in that if they do not not come after another block or not part of another block they by definition do not exist. This structural definition allows the existence of a block to carry certain certain cities simply by the fact that they exist in other words to bear Fi. The data of a block one needs to verify its position in a chain that contains other defined blocks each addition to this chain makes the entire structure more and more difficult to invalidating. But if you did and there is a press process process for invalidating a chain the fact that a change to this basic infrastructure would invalidate the whole further makes scenario more trustworthy so that certainly is over technical and quite possibly wrong But the important thing to me and from my perspective is that as an infrastructure it is superior to other databases databases networks or distributing distributed computing models for certain uses and the High find it to be superior for is data transactions injections not necessarily data storage but data transactions. What happened when where and with perfect while if this was was an incorrect or definition what correct one is so thank you so much for that it was it was really good definition? I'm GonNa will definitely always As he knows. So well you know. There are many different schools of thought when it comes to blockchain and different tribes who who liked to defend their view of it right so so could you tell us a little bit about the city of Dublin and just in our Irish listeners where referring here to the city of Dublin in Ohio USA. Not Dublin. Orlands so I love to hear more about your lovely city. There are folks in Ohio. We know Dublin wealth and the rest of the world who have heard about it but for a lot of the world people people are like. I don't know what you're talking about. Here's a bunch of Dublin's in the United States as well But as I said we're a small community of around fifty thousand and up apply. Some years ago started along the path towards innovation through fiber optics in developing one of the first publicly-owned city owned fiber optic networks networks. And so we're kind of a techno-centric kind of a place that has embraced using technology to advance its economic development interests from air. We've been kind of a leader or innovator when it comes to smart cities up whether it be a sitting next to smart Columbus on being part of that same region or being being a part of the Intelligence Communities Forum in which we compete and go for awards where that is the city has an institute the Global Institute for the study the of the intelligence community to help share some of what we've learned about intelligent communities in smart city development and derive more from around the world and share those lessons since with other communities so we kind of want to be a conduit and in a light in showing how communities can use technology to improve the lives absorb their citizens. And that's kind of our brand at this point. I mean it's fascinating because you know just to remind him what the point is said of the city of fifty thousand people and you are quite forefront of developing new technology and. I'm sharing your best practice. What you've learned for me you know you sound very much like a city similar to Silicon Valley and also what is amazing because as it is a subject of our podcast that you've managed to develop a digital identity project based blockchain technology? Why how did your city managed to get to this point to be so tax heavy? Well well there are a few advantages and a few good moves some investments that the city of Dublin made that strategically placed us in a different position. So if there's there's any other cities out there listening you'll recognize some of this first of all. We did introduce me as a chief information officer. and honestly if you're not a very large arch city like a Boston or New York or Los Angeles or Atlanta or a London. You don't have a chief information officer you have an. It director director whose job it is to keep the technology running. Not necessarily to envision. What's next in what's new and so- Dublin Did that they invested in that in part because we're small there's less to run and there's a lot of innovation happening here in our region. We've got a great research institution Asian in in Ohio University and the Ohio State University. And there's just a lot of resources here that make it possible for us to do it. But if you're another city Anderson later saying it. We're not doing that it in part. It's because it's difficult for a city to hire someone in give them that job so hello. Dublin is benefiting from brilliant brilliant now so you've developed a digital identity project based on blockchain technology. What problem were you looking to address? This is interesting Because I WANNA put you in your listeners in the in the stance of considering what a city is we tend to look look at cities and say Stay in your lane plows. Snow Mow the grass. Fix The potholes and cut my taxes. And I'll be happy happy. And we don't think about all the various services and things that a city doesn't in has been doing but if cities do not innovate than we are going to be disrupted roughed it just like any other business. If he didn't think that the United States post office could be disrupted and of course. It is being disrupted because we always thought that we will deliver letters in boxes and Amazon changed all that you know taxes are being disrupted. Everybody's being disrupted cities can be disrupted and I think that that could be devastating for us. So it's my job to try and stay ahead of that and to continue to. Innovate we are candidates for innovation. Just like anybody else. I do believe that there's going to be a new distributed data environment just as the web changed to everything Blockchain the distributed data environment is going to change everything and we don't want to get caught off guard We were concerned about and remained concerned about preparing for kind of leaner government. government As it is now may not look the way. It is automation boxer. We're subject to impact by those as well. So what happens if we have far fewer people in a lot more automation. They're a how're we going to build the service model that serves people I mentioned you know sort of a digital disruption Russian of government just like anybody else right. Now I'm out in the Wilderness crying about this. Nobody believes it but I think we're going to see it happen Also mentioned sort of a declining in degrading trust in a sort of a more dangerous data privacy in firemen for people and we expect this to have but negative impact on citizens in public transactions. If we don't prepare for that Mrs all before thinking about blockchain as a potential solution But then also generally just as a person who uses technology I desire new level control or autonomy Regarding my data and I think that cities are local governments or even national governments can play a role in providing that security and privacy to citizens perhaps through some sort of a service but then finally there's a huge amount of pressure for cities to become smart cities to become programmable to use data to make decisions and I'm afraid that we're all gonna run into a big brick wall if we can't identify people or other private things that need to be identified in order to program around them We're all very excited about cars. Driving down the street being automated but if we don't have a mechanism for identity that's going to be a problem so should have government Create a new identity Regime I feel that blockchain gives a lot of control and privacy obviously back to citizens so that if we do need to program aspects of our lives that we would control of privacy back into citizens hands Eh.
Do genetic ancestry tests know if youre Palestinian? A cautionary tale of race and science
"Welcome welcome to size friction on the tension ritual in. Today's episode is Genomic Science to go to striking story for you of the shocks. You can engage when you take a genetic ancestry tests and the problems are not in your Diana. They are in the science. Oh man so so I want you to make mercury eight to buy. Oh my gosh. So she's an American Palestinian cartoonist illustrator. Leaving in Brooklyn New York and when Shae Shea started to draw well I kind of helped his stop making sense of the world. When I was younger all I wanted to do withdraw from Warwick fantasy characters? who were you know exploring some fantasy world adventuring trying to figure out the meaning of war? Yeah you Matz I. She was an intense keyed. He'd sigh relate to that. I'm not even joking. That was my first comic when I was like thirteen or fourteen trying to figure out the meaning of war yes the law plot. What was really hard? Core rate was trying to figure out the world her family stories. We're helping figure out a self my family. So my my Palestinian side of the family were originally from Ramallah they came to the US in the sixties after the nineteen sixty seven war. And and. That's where my father. My mother my mother is mostly of British and Scottish ancestry and they met in DC and the register and Marguerite was born. She grew up in San Francisco but she understood whole lot about the deep heritage in history. If if family I lived with a lot of my extended family on my father's side and and the constantly I mean I think it's a very Palestinian thing to talk about loss. I'm sorry to say Palestine and talk about what was lost in talk about how it was and things like that so I heard very much about out where we were from and how it was there and everything and there is actually a book. That is a congenial logical history of Ramallah so my family needs to say his in this book. This is actually a book that was done maybe thirty years ago. There's actually a recent effort to update the books so this is kind of a big thing and it's very much a Palestinian thing to try to keep memory alive. It's a need to assure after that. Hey you know we exist who've had the we had this entire history. We're going to write it somewhere. We're going to you know. Put it somewhere. I wish I could've seen Palestine back in the day honestly because it just sounds really chill a nice. I'd like to go okay. Okay so mercury thought. She had a pretty clear idea about her ancestry but then she sped into a test tube. Well first half-brother on her father's side spat into a test tube. He decided on a whim to take a day and I taste and he got the results back in he was just blake. Yeah you might want to take a look at these results. He's her kind of weird. Well we'd in an intriguing conaway. Our understanding ending was that from my Dad's side. We were fully half Palestinian half Arab but these results they suggested something different so so we were just like what so marguerite decided to do an ancestry test to this was back in two thousand sixteen. They went through twenty three and me did the all spit in a tube and she said it off to the company twenty-three May and literally Chino. Even more surprises would be in store for her so the saliva gets to our partner lab. The DNA is extracted from that. and My name Ms Joanna Mountain and I'm senior. Director of research at twenty three and me and previously at Stanford with Joanna also did her PhD and specialized in human evolutionary evolutionary genetics. So when customers sign on with the genetic testing and Analysis Company twenty-three May which is headquartered in Silicon Valley. He's what what happens to this speech sample around a half. A million positions in the DNA are analyzed and we get the genetic variants at those half million positions genetic knitting variant. Now that just means some kind of unique variation in your genomes deny say quance so then twenty three and me use an automated computerized Haraz prices to p different stretches or windows of your day and I and then I compare those two James off a reference group made up of individuals individuals from different populations globally. Now what ethnicities are present or missing from that reference group. That's K. as you'll he'll IDA and and we look at each one of these little windows and we say to which people is this individual most genetically similar and we continue as we stroll along the genome looking and saying well at this point this genome looks very similar to people from say Iberia and then we get a little further down in. Wow it looks similar to people from commoner and even in further down. It looks similar to people from Ireland. So there's a method we have that classifies each little patch of the genome by saying. Is this more similar to people from Ireland Orland or from France and then the algorithm says okay the probability that's from Ireland and appropriately. France in whichever is highest. Is the winner there so then we patch it all together come up with percentages for each individual so it's a multi step process and that's what we present to the customer okay so back back to margarite radium waiting for the results from twenty three and May to land in her inbox and sure enough. I got I got the results back and Some of them made sense. You know I knew enough about my mother's side of the family told me that okay. HALF OF ME is British and Scottish Scottish. Okay cool makes sense what came next made very little sense to her. Other half is going on percent Italian Elian it said thirty five percent Italian and then the rest was Arab Specifically Oh what did it say. Think specifically had said western Western Asian or something they actually tried to give me a breakdown of what regions of Italy it came from but they couldn't actually detect wherein Italy. It came from at all Wade. It'll Italian come from and actually I think is sweet coincidence. Is it true that your husband is Italian. My husband is Italian and I did actually when I got the test I did ask him like do I look talion. He was just like no suddenly just like that. Migrate was possibly thirty percent Italian and only fifteen percent western Asian and north African and canete slightly saving detail that she is Palestinian heritage. We'll wait until you hear what happened. Win Twenty Twenty three and may updated her results two years later. It's fairly incredible. I though Hel genetically different we really well at the genome scale there. Her over three billion nucleotides that make up our genome. So My name is Sarah Tishkov and I may professor of genetics awesome biology at the University of Pennsylvania and she's hugely influential Sarah and colleagues published the first pipe to support the out of Africa hypothesis of human migration using analysis of the DNA inside cells Nuclei and has conducted the largest studies of genetic variation in in African populations. We differ at about. I would say less than point. One percent of the genome. So that's a relatively small mall amount of difference to give you an idea of we. Compared the human genome to a chimp genome. It differs at about one point. Five percent of the genome less than point point one percent and yet what is contained within that variation that difference the majority of variation is not functional and in fact that variation is very useful for making inferences about evolutionary history about population history demographic McGrath history tracing migration events and so on the part of the genome it actually is influencing variable traits is important for understanding how how we adapted to different environments during human evolution and also understanding why some people are more at risk for certain diseases than others
Saint Marcellus's Flood - January 16, 1362
"Welcome back I'm your host eaves and you're tuned into this day in history class a show that takes history and squeezes it into bite size stories. Today is January sixteenth. Twenty twenty you. The day was January sixteenth thirteen sixty to a massive southwesterly early Atlantic gale known as Saint Marcellus flood or the growth among Daca hit the British isles the Netherlands northern Germany and Denmark work it resulted in at least twenty six thousand deaths. The event is also known as the second Saint Marcellus flood since a similar disaster. Astor happened on January sixteenth in twelve nineteen Saint Marcellus is flood took place during. What some Matala Gist? Now call the little ice age. This period wasn't an actual ice age. The term coined by geologist F e Matt refers to a climate interval after the medieval warm period did when mean annual temperatures declined and the weather was unstable though climatologists and historians disagree on the exact span of the period and by many definitions. The so called Little Ice Age lasted from the fourteenth century. To the mid nineteenth century around the twelfth century a series as of large storm surges started occurring in the North Sea. By this time though Europeans were already familiar with storm surges caused by the Gills of extra tropical cyclones. An extra tropical cyclone is one that forms in the middle or high latitudes. These cyclones are driven by temperature. Sir Contrast in the atmosphere where two air masses meet and create a front though tropical cyclones create higher storm surges and get a lot of attention an extra tropical cyclone cover larger geographical areas. These storms led to the loss valuable land enforced communities to relocate. Europeans could not predict when the next flood would happen but they did build coastal defenses to protect against big storms and reclaimed land from the sea using innovative techniques. The low countries including the Netherlands western Germany Denmark Belgium northern France were particularly vulnerable able to storm surges and destruction. The first Saint Marcellus Floyd occurred in twelve nineteen drowned an estimated. Thirty six thousand people mostly mostly in West friesland and Groningen which are now locations in the Netherlands in twelve eighty seven. St Lucia flood killed more than fifty thousand people in the Netherlands in northern Germany. This storm over the North Sea destroyed sand dunes and natural clay barriers that separated a lake in the north west of the Netherlands. Orlands from the sea that turned the lake into a bay that became known as the designer say or southern fee villages were wiped out in Harlington. A town that was landlocked became a seaport. England was also affected by the storm. Surge the second Saint Marcellus flood was also devastating it. It hit large parts of North Western Europe. On January sixteenth thirteen sixty to a southwesterly Atlantic gale swept across the British isles. The Netherlands orlands northern Germany and Denmark high tides combined with the storm to flood large parts of the low countries. Wrong whole report. On the island of Strand in the Duchy of slippy reportedly completely stuck into the C- The city attained a sort of mythical status with debate later rising being over whether it ever even existed the port of Ravens is in England was largely wiped out the storm further open designers aid to the sea eighty and around sixty parishes in Denmark were reportedly destroyed. The storm changed the shape of the Danish German and Dutch coastlines. The death toll of the flood has been estimated at at least twenty five thousand people up to one hundred thousand though. The exact number is disputed. January sixteenth is the

Google Stadia Launch Review
"Reviews Google. Stadia are out one day before it launches for founders on Tuesday November nineteenth and the consensus is works better than expected but still not quite good. Enough there's some noticeable lag which is not a problem in slow paced games but may or may not cause issues on shooters just depending on how. Oh sensitive you are to it. Ars Technica Kyle. Orleans said it worked fine on Ethernet for him but was inconsistent to the point of aggravation on on his wife anyway. most Oh said it kind of feels like a Beta Verges Sean. Hollister said it felt more reliable than similar services. He's tested but does not compare to a high end console or PC DC and and gadgets. Jessica Condit said I wouldn't play any of these titles competitively on stadia but the services find enough for a relaxing evening. If you don't remember. Google Stadia has upped it. They added some games. So they're gonNA have twenty two games at launch for one hundred thirty dollars plus ten dollars a month plus twenty to sixty dollars per the game. It's interesting the the whole sort of like okay. It's not snappy enough for competitive gaming but it's totally fine and for a fun relaxing evening. Who are the people who want one and not the other Yeah it's very of course I mean mobile gamers I guess sure. Yeah I mean I would probably be one of those people who's like I don't i. Don't care about the snapping -sarily if I've got like three games that I like and I wanNA play a lot but just I wonder what you know. WHO's going to be diverted from from from getting Google stadium knowing it's a little bit sluggish? Yeah well even if it doesn't actually apply to them it's kind of interesting because it will diverge personal me like I. I actually do game and and that Noel Second Response Response Time is important. But I don't know if you remember but I was on when stadium was announced and we we had talked about one point and I'm like Joe Streaming Guy it's been doing doing screening for years and I was amazed I was for the Beta was amazing because there's just a few people on it but I was amazed by the sort of overall. Let's just go out there and do it attitude stadium. It's hard like that stuff is hard and in and user managing user complaints when users really don't understand like how streaming is affected by all the various the pieces between the server and your game controller. They were. They're taking a huge gamble Microsoft by lake coming forward. So it's it's it's going to be kind of interesting. This is the same crowd. Yeah that was like complaining about that season. Game of thrones being too dark. It's like well. I I think to answer your question Sarah Anybody who games on an older other xbox or playstation especially if the playstation three or xbox three sixty which there still are some people will be fine with this that. I got a peek at it this weekend and my feeling was for me. It's fine like I'm not a competitive gamer. I'm not really attuned to the leg. So those of you who are competitive or think you you know your competitive are going to notice it. I imagine most people aren't what's a bigger problem is what ours tecnicas Kyle. Orland pointed out. And that's to your point rob rob which is there something in his Wifi that caused issues that he didn't see an Ethernet and a lot of people are GonNa say this doesn't work. It's your fault. Even though it may be the router setting or their equipment or something else on their network slowing it down because there are so many variables there. Yeah Yeah. It's I think eventually chilly. They're going to work this out. I mean this is the same problem net flicks at very very early on. That's true stuttering and all this stuff so so getting those. CDN CDN's in place and they've got the got the bucks to do it. So
"Five is what the next position we'll be called now we know and knowing is half the battle los new details about this week coming holiday twenty twenty the first release window the first Nexgen release window we they get some real news about like hardware stuff yeah but I also like that they just got out of the way like it stops us having to do that awkward like the next playstation and Mike Scarlet and like you know we knew it didn't really know it was coming twenty twenty and we knew that we didn't really know what it's called the PS five so I appreciate that it's just put that to bed yeah it makes it easier to write about sure to say playstation five not what we assume is playstation five and we assume comes out and bunny twenty are they just gonNa keep it forever will there eventually just be a police ten yup I think so playstation x gotta be do you remember those ads there was at ps two or three there were like fake it wasn't ad for like the playstation Ni- I remember for gaming the distant future what do you guys think holiday twenty twenty you guys feel like you'll be ready to buy a new playstation yeah carrots I'm Eddie ready you're ready right now I would the thing is I have two places at my house and one of them is on its last leg and I have to just this black Friday you buy a playstation for a year I'd rather just replace them both to ps five yeah that's fair I never upgraded to the pro so I'm definitely ready to Oh cool cool people that got the pro or the xbox one acts particularly the one exits doing fourcade more competent way like you know maybe they don't feel quite as rate upgrade but I skipped both so probably word of this. PS for a deal on black Friday you can just read all about it on Nigerian deals they'll probably be that is a joke but they'll probably be like a hundred and fifty bucks it's like last year they had the slim and it was like two hundred bucks with Spiderman and so it's like is it going to be two hundred bucks with Orlands or distracting or something like that it's like that is what I'm looking for you WANNA slim you don't Wanna pro will so it's for my wife and so she I have a pro and she has launch. ps four that is just like has pt on it so we've got that around but it really doesn't even accept this kind of like you got to be like getting there so I'm just oh by her slim because she she doesn't care I think this is the year and it's GonNa get even worse last year where many game developers have just kind of given up on making games run and like a good competent way on like a base xbox embedded control as amazing that game is is like it's a you know there are problems with running that game on a base. PS four and two yeah and I you know I only saw like an animated gift fund read it but like the new raid in destiny is having problems on a launch x one like it's just so I think that's what I'm ready for I'm ready for developers to once again be able to make console games for one console like instead of being like okay here's assassin's creed Odyssey and this somehow has to run on the launch xbox now it's going to be like this is an xbox scarlet does that playstation five game yeah I think that's what I'm however however short that window of time may be until yeah they'll be a revision the a little bit of a crossover to where they're still making them for peaceful for but we got a bunch of hardware details on places and five as well but I also want to point out that the way Sony is rolling out information about the console is continues to baffle me very strange I think highly unusual what part about it well it was a playstation blog post like they're not having a big showcase for playstation for like a big event consistently been through wired magazine to also it's like every time Martin's earnings in the area he's away it's almost like what does wired have on so that's my fear they must have dug up this because this occasionally happens where you know a reporter may dig up information and they say hey we're gonna run this story and then the publisher decides right hold on we'll play ball so that at least the story as it comes out won't be this fragmented thing I mean I think a lot of it is deaf kits are getting the hands of more and more third parties so some of the details like I think I speculate that that's why we got controller details is because controller prototypes are probably already in the hands of people that are not Sony employees anymore so it's like even though they're under NDA and everybody's professional once that stuff leaves your four walls like that those details we're gonNA start leaking anyway maybe they left it at a bar around the corner from Wires men would not be the first time I mean wouldn't that also be around the corner from our office I know we don't go to the right bars also but Sean Laden is leaving playstation or has left which one which I I'm not sure it announced that he was leaving I mean in general they all Manson was also weird because normally do something more for Malaika blog post They just did this like innocuous tweet so everyone's like wait that's not how they do thank you for your service into the next generation of playstation like they don't really have they have Shuhei Yoshida but aside from that they don't have like a face of the brand out Jack Trenton was there ah assured in the PS four yeah and then he left yeah strange you would think like twelve months from now everything's baked the council's done the launch lineups cited that would feel like a better time for maybe some executive departures Feels a little early yeah I think so too well maybe intentionally so if you're not prepared to usher in the PS fight now is the right time to leave so someone else can start of pick that up and then decide to be the face and carried out leave a little less confusion you want to do it all right I'm Dan I don't want Mark Cerny to just run everything I he seemed like this like tech you know in the garage inventing things and stuff like that I can just picture being the face of being three Industry Yeah I like the egg heads well let's talk about some of these details then it's getting the new controller we stayed don't think they've called the dual shock five yet although I would assume that's what it's become will include haptic feedback which just fancy rumble that sounds like gimmicky things a that was an xbox one controller from launch and like racing games used it yeah and that's it I mean everyone talks about the fans see rumble in the switch controlling and like I think it's completely overrated jacquet grumbled to me plus one party game when like a shoot Mario Odyssey used a little bit could be a case of developers just not but it's also I guess my point is that this is already exists and has been underutilized it's not the most exciting next feature now I think that well I know you're going to get to it but the trigger sound more fund adaptive vigors. Yeah so developers will be able to through the coding of the game we'll be able to change detention that you feel on your triggers that's interesting so I should feel more like you know emmy downsides will be ask sneezy but like the back of bolstering have more resistance on your finger that's seems a lot more intriguing to me personally yeah that can be could be cool if you're doing it I just thought of it like if the dark souls if you have like a smaller sword maybe not you but if you're playing if you have like a small sword or like a heavy sword maybe it's maybe it's heavier Richard. I'm excited about it but you're never going to be like forcing the trigger it's going to be pretty minimal right so I don't know being finger exercises in preparation in the name of ah accessibility like I love the xbox what's the name of their now see adaptive controller controller lecture give people complete freedom to recap the controls how they want I don't know that there's a particular you know accessibility concern around you know adaptive triggers quality of life improvements The control is supposed to have a higher capacity if that trace news the most exciting and they said it slightly heavier sorry the last thing on the controller but not as heavy as an xbox controller with batteries and the controller is on the light I wanNA come a little bit heavier a bit more substantial also charges with USB which is very cutting because I love you know being able to. I mean it's up it's something so it comes from a long history of developers trying to make Games look more look more realistic so like we used to have rationalizing is kind of our Oh to where it's measuring how light looks and then we had like cute little advances from their words like shadows and reflections but now you can do that in a former realistic way I think the way that it's been described as it's like physics space look on the image rather than a creative base look at it so it's going to be far more realistic and when you look at unlike red dead too and it's so beautiful with its lighting and it's it's God raised coming through the trees and whatnot yeah but imagine what they can do to make that look even

LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act
"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices justices that exists now in college good firm decision absolutely the right thing let's see where it goes
'Borderlands 3' voice actor turned down role because Gearbox ‘wouldn’t go union’
"One on the report why Troy Baker isn't in borderlands three this is Kirk Kirk mckean over vg twenty four seven. If you remember we're of course do this whole Brouhaha for months. Now Randy Pitchford was asked on twitter. Hey is going to be reese. Randy said no troy turned down in Troy. I didn't turn it down. You guys said No. There's been back and forth. It's been ugly here's Kirk at VGA twenty four seven. We recently got a chance to talk to Baker during a fan event for wrestler replay. Let's play series the actor host alongside the other Troy Baker Nolan north. I love that during our chat he was openly disappointed that he didn't get a chance to play reese again in Borderlands Orlands three quote so they came to me and they were like do you want to do this. Baker explained which I said absolutely and then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money money. It had nothing to do. It had nothing to do with money. It had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed to be done so then it it was like I never said no gosh I I worry Detroit. No he was talking to a reporter. It sounds like he's had a retro replay thing with Guinness just sitting there talking we we asked Baker to clarify what he meant by this scheduling conflicts or something else quote no it was simply a matter that they wouldn't go union. He replied and I can't do a non union union GIG without getting too deep into the weeds of that we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it that this was going to be the thing they're gonNa take these characters and put them from put them from the tales from the series from telltale into Borland's proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like do you want to do this and I said yes. They never they never because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad is invariably a complicated different. I'm sorry it's invariably a completely different different character but it's still sings stings fuck. It's hard to read quotes that are like just talking yeah. When it's a prepared quote we all go this garbage quote or a written word in general but when Choi's they're they're doubling up sentences over jabbing now the fun little kind of funny thing that we can do that but I want? I was going to bring in Chad's question because I think there's interesting. relation dossier Chad wrote in to Patriot dot com slash Kinda Funny Games says morning folks with the reveal this morning that Baker as a sack after member couldn't minute reprise his role of reese in Borland's three because gearbox wouldn't go union. Do you think this is something we'll see more of. Do you think this now becoming such a high profile story will before the hands of publishers to allow voice actors to unionize. I also wonder how often this happens. Considering it took one of if not the most popular voice actors sorry known to to make a headline that said I love the solitary solidarity intrigue continues to demonstrate that he is one of the kindest humans lot also. Let Your Voice Actors Union is Randy what the fuck cheers so yes. I already know where you're going with. This is an interesting story. If you all remember we hear kind of funny didn't animated series called kind of funny the animated series in episode one principal Christopher Walken it was played by Donna Troy Baker and the idea of course is that that'd be reoccurring character throughout throughout the entire run of the animated series well on top of that he was going to play two characters. He was gonNA play the principal. He was also gonNA play Troy who was like the Guy Oh I do. Remember who was a character in the show that just doesn't ever have voice yeah and the reason he doesn't have a voice is he's a Wendy's boyfriend. I remember that yeah I'd beef with Troy and we we we did a he pulled favor. I totally which is a gal do fucking voice view. He ended up getting kind of in trouble for it. It was more of a slap on the wrist. If you can't be doing that Shit so dr like hey we want to do the whole like series a kind of social. Whatever the hell it was at that point we had to go through his people and he didn't want to be that way he was he's like dude? I want to do this. Let's make it work but us us especially back then be the people we were. We got maybe two steps into that process and we're oh man it's complicated and it's going to require not too much money but the way that the money had to go was too complicated for what we were set up for gearbox they can handle that shape this and nothing that's of course the argument to be made here right is that kind of funny in the spare bedroom at the kitchen table and nick riding on these scripts was not the same as gearbox however there's a lot of different stuff going on here. Remember that when the David eddings lawsuit stuff was happening right and he was saying he that when he got replaced as claptrap this is a similar thing right that he left left in some he he worked at gearbox did the voice of claptrap and didn't get paid extra because of it. That's not the payment thing. I don't know anything about that other than what eddings has talked about publicly but that's still seems to be the case with how they do the voices in general right after the troy thing happened. I wondered if it was this based on what had happened with us. We obviously we had never had that kind of sag work a conversation before because we never did something like that before so it'd been so much time between borderlands two boroughs three I wondered after this happened with Troy was a union thing and then on top of that. I wonder how that would affect one actually burch who of course tiny team in the game is in the game. It is actually on the economy com slash wrong if I'm wrong about that doing tiny Tina's voice like I was wondering how she got around it because that's the other thing within the union ship makes everything so complicated. No longer on unions do a lot of great. I'm good. I'm not saying they're bad but I know like when I go and do the Lego Games because I'm not union. I have to do Taft Hartley Agreement. That's something weird like I. There's like paperwork on top of paperwork that is like we're bringing this person in because he s voice because of x y and Z yeah and so you know it's this weird thing of also talking to an extent here but for a long time not forever a longtime telltale didn't use SAG after voice actors obviously towards the end the change we're talking about in the borderland right here troy's in that obviously laurabeets in that all that but I remember and I'd have to go look at it now. There's there's something different about the credits where if you look through the credits of a telltale game where they use both union and non union they get credited in different ways interesting. There's so many intricate streak. I can't even talk to complications to use voice sag person or a a union voice actress nonunion voice actor that I I do wonder what this means for. How gearbox does it? You know I think chat ask in general I don't think so because I don't think this is something that happens often in many ways we've talked about. I think it is automatic. I'd imagine this happening all the time. I mean if it happened to us. I'm sure it's happening all over the place that you just don't hear about it because most people don't have podcast that years later the randomly telling the story sure you know but I think were going just different uh-huh directions with this one I'm saying I wonder how much this happens in terms of AAA Games. That's what I'm
Our big Apple iPhone 11 preview (The Daily Charge, 9/5/2019)
"Today on the daily charge facebook launches a new dating service amazon's twenty new fire tv gadgets and our big apple iphone eleven three good morning and welcome to c. nets daily charge. It's thursday september fifth. I'm jay. I'm ben fox ruben and i'm david katz mire. Let's get today stories. His apples next big event is scheduled for next tuesday so we figured it's never too early to preview expect from the iphone eleven the biggest change maybe to its hi. Send model rumored be called the iphone eleven pro so say goodbye to the max supposedly has a glass back and a triple camera configuration while the more budget friendly iphone eleven are may finally get that dual lens setup that well you know the budget seekers have been wanting for so you guys excited. Is that it this dual orlands 'as isn't it in the big thing going to be next year's iphone. Yes oh i mean. How many times have we said that every year every year. This is not an s year. Technically i believe so this is the third year that they're basically using the same design and they've been doing this recently. They've kind of extended out the cycle so now you have to wait three years for a big refreshing. I think you're right. In terms of adding five g. in terms of a big redesign will probably have to wait for the twenty to monitor and they said this morning the fingerprint reader might come next year to screen fingerprints yeah so yeah so yeah. It's it's a little little disappointing. If you're if you're an apple user commented about this plenty of times but samsung already already introduced both of those features five g. and in screen fingerprint reader was in march <hes> with the galaxy stanton yeah yeah so it's pretty pretty clear from reading charts have constructed today. It's pretty clear that apple has been well behind on the of innovation curve the continuation of that that being said from a business perspective if they're like okay we smartphone market is saturated at this point. We're going to build out on services a lot of other things so that's what they've been doing for years. You've been mind they deal with huge volumes volumes for this single phone right so every time they have to make a big tweak or change was phone. It's a massive process right so that's partly their greatest strength is his grace weakness. Yeah yeah next up. Facebook is launching a dating service in the u._s. Yes you heard that right the company which faces a host of questions about ability to protect our data want you to trust it with funny that special someone. What do you think this why. Why is this happening this is this is like facebook portal all over again which is like like the company is going through all of these security and privacy issues and now coming out with a new product that a lot of people are really questioning what the value value is or are people going to trust facebook with this type of data. Yeah our own queenie talked to facebook about this. <hes> really asked about the privacy question you know they. They assured her that that the information collected for the dating profile wouldn't be sold advertisers and they're trying to take extra steps to make the secure walled off keeping my beyond facebook other. Getting dating services have had a pretty bad rap when it comes to privacy concern so there's a there's there's two issues here and according to queenie story she also mentioned that a lot of younger people are the folks that tend to use dating apps in the first place and so this is an opportunity for facebook to try to. I don't know lower the age of their total demographic because everybody's been helping to instagram so we'll see if that works and this this apparently sucks in the instagram posts automatically so that makes sense to so if you're if you're honest graham. You're dating waiting so keep in mind. This is supposed to be tinder. This is more about finding that you know that special someone and not a single night hookup also amazon launch twenty fire tv equipped gadgets at berlin's for trade show that includes its first oleg tv with fire tv built-in. Why we have cast meyer on david breaks down for us. There's a lot of products. I'm not here to talk about facebook dating and if you want to you know it's all it's all about this lead t._v. That has fire tv the first of its kind. It's it's only in germany so you know all the ts have great picture. Quality fingers crossed that comes the u._s. You know maybe l._g. Will throw in roku t._v. or on fire tv and get rid of their little web address system <hes>. There's also a new fire tv cube. Which is the weird remote control hybrid thing that's come to the us. It's going to be faster and a sound bar with built in fire tv. So that's a trend that's happening is. They're building streaming things into sound bars because we're not there. Are people actually get the streaming steak but are actually buying these this this other kind of ecosystem of fire tv connect products or well yeah. I mean amazon says they are they mean the stick is doing really well but the fire tv t._v.'s for example. That's like their big other other play and that competes with roku those have been selling really well to according to them. Prime day was a big blockbuster obviously for the toshiba branded things. They have a partnership with best buy so they're out out there in the market and a lot of people are using them and you know if you like alexa a lot. I think it's a pretty good product otherwise i like roku t._v. Better all right. Finally the galaxy fold is back. Samsung tout said it will launched with a new white glove customer support program but if you're looking to get in the u._s. Drought a luck. It only be available in south korea journey in the u._k. The fold has been. I mean it's it's been a disastrous launch and now it's even come to the u._s. Is that was that mean for full funds. I mean good for them. I say this every time but honestly sleep. We were talking about apple earlier that they really are so incremental in their efforts. This is the first time that a major company well. Why is doing this to. It's also had a delayed product. This is a big change so i think at least from my perspective consumers are going to be a little bit more patient but maybe i'm wrong about that. An the american consumers are not patient with something that breaks. I feel like launching only in in in you know a limited market especially korea where it's like basically plan on your home turf. You know they really we have an advantage in terms of getting the word out there positive. They have a lot of negative stuff to overcome with this phone so not launching the u._s. Wise maybe a little pansy the ash but samsung they can do what they want. Well parley. I think a bunch of carriers kind of backed out right. There were carry that were committed to solve this thing they probably saw the controversy just said you know what may not only the drama and they're still coming out with it so you know they didn't scuttle it. Completely broken credit for that so the daily charged on roger chang. I'm ben facts urban mark. Thanks for joining us.
