From wild idea to COVID vaccine meet the mRNA pioneer who could win a Nobel
"Renew and november. When the first cases started the pop up and wuhan china their description of the virus there description of how easily it was transmitted between families once. We heard that we knew that. This virus had the potential to be a bad actor at that moment in time we said. How are we going to get the sequence for this virus and we started calling our friends and china. We called our friends at the cdc trying to get the sequence of this virus the minute that was published. We started to make our vaccines back on. I think it was january twelfth. We started making the first aren a vaccine that day. It has all happened. Unfathomably fast has an at twelve months later and the pfizer and maduna vaccines have made their way through large clinical trials with good results into syringes and now already into millions of arms. But this quite a back story here. We thought that it would be useful in a pandemic. We thought it would be influenza pandemic but you back in two thousand and five. When we made the initial observation we knew that aren a had a great potential therapeutics. Who with his collaborator catala career. How is a good bit to win a nobel prize for the science driving. Mri vaccines. he's one of my guests on science fiction today. What's been lost in the fast pace race to develop covid nineteen vaccine. This past year is a hidden story of dogged. Pursuit of a nollie scientific idea over decades often in the face of skeptics and nice ideas we went through pharmaceuticals venture capitalists. All other people. it said. Hey we have a great new invention here. And they weren't interested. They said now aren as too hard to work with. We don't think it'll ever work and they just weren't interested now with a pandemic bang with suddenly counting on mri vaccines lock eyes and medina's to help save us. But before this pandemic this brand new technology of marigny vaccines had never been approved for use in humans before. It's incredible isn't it. The heddon even made it to the stage of large scale clinical trials in humans. I don't think anybody could have predicted. Just how effective these vaccines were. And i still get chills. When i remember the moment when that announcement was made a few months ago biologist onto fox is future fellow and associate professor at the university of western australia. It has proved the nice as wrong. I mean given that fifty percent effective is the baa that the world health organization would've liked to say as the minimum to be getting ninety. Five percent is just astounding really hardly any vaccines have that level of efficacy. Cullen pat and professor of pharmaceutical biology at monash pharmaceutical sciences. He's team is working on two different. Mri vaccines for covid. Nineteen in collaboration with the doughy institute in melbourne change from the point of view the future of emo toy syrupy and we haven't had a vaccine working against corona virus. Before i could understand the science. And i could see how theoretically it might work. But i just couldn't see how we could actually make enough to be the billions of doses needed for the world. And that's still looking doc- rod it's entirely contingent on just to pharmaceutical companies meeting. The world's entire supply demands including ours here in australia. Will you receive the pfizer vaccine together just before christmas. We did the vaccine driven by your discovery. Can you describe what that moment was like figuring. My family always yells at me. Because i'm not excited enough. And they're right for man who co owns the intellectual property licenses to medina and i dream osman humble kind of guy. We were incredibly excited. When we saw the results of the phase three trial that are vaccine. Worked and of a safe and had ninety. Five percent efficacy. I'm already moved on to the next thing the next back scene. The next gene therapy you. I'm incredibly excited. That this vaccine is working that it's gonna make a dent in this pandemic many think that there's a nobel prize in chemistry waiting in the wings for you and dr katie. Rico what do you make of that. So people tell the too modest. And i really don't do things for prizes or recognition or anything else.

After an absolutely hunkin monstrous alligator was spotted walking along the valencia golf and country club. Honestly he was a little hot. Okay i i feel like that hairstyles cover us really got into. I wouldn't say that. I'm so horny from that. Fuck an alligator. But i appreciate say he was. He was big. He was muscular. He knew what he wanted. He was walking with purpose. You know yeah. And who doesn't love a tall man nine to ten feet long. Come on tall king. I mean he. More importantly that the picture was fake because the legs on the alligator long and people aren't used to seeing like a tall and actually tall tall wise alligator. Exactly who who even knew that they had like thunder. I've never seen on your side of alligator myself. You only really see the top like the top of a deep dish pizza sauce but you have no idea.

But who's to stop them. Okay it's twenty twenty where breaking barriers left and right. I think that it's finally time to see an alligator in professional golf. Also like i feel like there's a great opportunity to start training alligators to be caddies. Is that the term caddy. I don't know it sounds offensive. I know but to be the to be carrying around the bags like there definitely strong enough. I feel like you know they're they're they're available. They're hanging out. We should be bringing them into help. John why are there caddies. Golfers like you're not doing any work to begin with. So why don't you just carry your own bag. It's like the least stressful sport. And then you need some like slave to help you carry stuff around and a car to get around this alligator. I honestly feel like he should have been there to fuck chomp on some rich people. It's time he's getting. He's getting the ball rolling and eating the rich. This is karl. Marx gator okay. This is a he's he. He read the red book and he is saying we're going to eat.

Contrary to popular belief there are type of angry. Ferret breaking news. New research suggests that they initiate warfare to try fucking rival men. Yes shiro she wrote pickle conniving women this is exactly what we don't need right now so mom. Geese in general are like infamous for family warfare. Sopranos much there are highly loyal to their birth families and they often wage group warfare against other family clans. Love this but researchers have long wondered why they actually fight one another but now one theory based on almost twenty years of data suggests that at least one purpose for the fights is to allow females a chance to meet with opponent males so according to one researcher said we think females play a role in inciting these conflicts to escape the males in their own family groups during the confusion and chaos of battle. They're like literally start byte so they could get away and fuck the enemy. I love this. This is a fantastic tactic. This is life we can be learning young piece. This is my new dating strategy. Just start throwing punches and then everyone expects that. Y my deco start. Mating remember.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

We recorded a discord game. Show where we did that. We had people give us their invention ideas. Was a total shit show was wondering. Yes yeah a lot of really bad ideas, but there were a couple ideas that were just like good one. This like inflatable pregnancy sweater so that you could go on public transit and. They're. Played, it and you get on. One, that was like mixing tolerance like leg extenders. Make you as tall as the person you're talking to, so it can like see how tall they are incredibly. That sounds expensive. Yeah, no I mean I wouldn't be too bad. What's a good idea? I do see us. The thing is I, don't know. Seal it. How long does the methane how long Buddhism a day and stay active? Who'd probably stay in it for a long time because you should do one where it's like one day later one week later one month? How do you keep like Fart consistency though? You keep eating the same. Those you, the input matters. Yeah, because I would think that the output doesn't vary that much in terms of the gas. Yes, but if you like you know I mean science. Tell me your farts don't smell different every time. Trash sometimes smell a rotting corpse. I'll. Tell all right well, I will. You on, Tiktok, you are. Yes, you ever talk I. Am I am I? Have a viewer. I just I just want to know what's going on there, and and somehow you're one of the first channels I stumble across an started falling. These might be promoting. The is channels so I can't even tell. People actually want to watch the videos if they're doing it artificial, because I just somehow found all the scientists, but actually like them, I think they're interesting. Yeah, yeah, which better than teenage girls dancing? Correct and that's that's my problem is. The vast majority of its on teenage girls. I haven't gone to that Portal Somehow I. It's I think you have to take some action? Stand up there. No because I haven't seen it I i. don't see that many as you see lots of science and see lots of pranks and I see law spent a Lotta time on it though. Thank enough where I would see underage girl What's what the? How is there a platform? Literally that just serves you underage girls dressed. And little clothing willing back. FUCKING PLATFORM! That's crazy. I don't know man. That's fucking crazy. Don't know about that I. Feel like last I saw they weren't in. Bikinis is like a new development. Yeah, I think they've generated because it in the beginning, it was more about the dense right. Oh Zach said the biggest. Really, what's her name's asset early yeah yeah. Yeah demilio marshmallow well. Her name is Charlie. C. H. A., R. Ally, but it started with when it was musically. It was really about this girl sixteen years old. She's she I feel so bad for to. I see all sorts of stuff way is they're twins? That was a weird name. Oh say look like identical. or not they look different. I just saw her post on twitter the other day about. And she's number one. Yeah, she's like sixty million dollars or something. And so of yeah, and so like she's like. Not Wearing a lot of close, she's actually not so bad. But it's a lot of like. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is very. Provocative very provocative sixteen actors, so it's like it's very late. Just people treat you like you're. And people being very judgmental, and you sort of seen on twitter can just the other day. She's complaining about people. Like, yeah, I know I'm boring. Because people were like commenting on a livestream, she had done on Tiktok. She does the same same thing like you just make the same sound and this and that and they're like just like roasting and like yeah in and it's like. Seniors old. He's like who knows been like propelled by this platform. My this man, and that should still yeah, it breaks or the worst thing that can happen to you as majors to become really famous yet right well. Yeah, exactly I mean I genuinely think. Most people think that I'm just being stupid like. People are not receptive to this, but the coming famous can be the worst thing that happens a lot of times people I think especially depending how old you are in. What are your circumstances and how you deal with eight?.

"As also weaponising is following, we'd every weight is showing them to send me send me more. But but yeah I taught. Live your life. It's dangerous and he's very and I think he's very damaging to the to the community as a whole, even even like There's no. There's no real rebuttal for an accusation. Even if you completely prove innocence or anything like people will always have that in their head might not even see their because they're rebuttal is not like who Miranda. Up and like it sounded bad from the outside and. It didn't really see. That will that I didn't really understand what the big hype was. It was just kind of like an awkward relationship. So this dude, this video exposing our he and he's like. Oh, she sent me lingerie when I write. Explained it I was like Oh man. He totally fucked her. Right because I. Like you know we do stuff like I'll just send crap to people like I, literally central supply would in the mail. Last. Over screaming and wasn't used right, which is such a big difference? It was something. East side I never even touched it or open it from the bag because he was something that was used as gross I think he'd even like for one. So it's like not saying that that was the smartest thing she could have done, but like my thoughts before having heard, it was much worse than after the fact, and how many people and that's what that's what he does like. He put a video in which was kind of one of the motivating factors for me, making my my initial Vida's. You fall this probably not. Yeah. You better always teaching online. Probably. Way Less. Better use of your time, so he puts out that That I that I'm stealing money? From a collided with a video game company that what I was supposed to donate to charity and I go. I, get the guy on the phone and I say. he's like that's not true. And that video still up. And people still believe it. Yeah and I don't think that somebody who's willing to just lie to that capacity I've presents themselves as news. Is is is a real danger rag on the hair. Look in any of this I'm assuming he wouldn't be invited to like off. The. Incident Youtube starts like pushing buttons behind the scenes. I mean people lose their mind thinking that you're convincing? The picture was Susan like to me. It's comical because like they don't give her. Susan on feed the. it's only lately like in the past week or two. I'm starting to understand also that this is kind of. dipping into anti-semitism, because all of a sudden I'm getting all this racist comments on my stuff, and then it's like when you connect the dots. His greedy is always about the money, and now he's running. A! spiracy behind the scenes with the CEO of Youtube like that's. Yeah! If you say that people will take it wrong, but came literally. Came tweeted out like two days ago. Ethan is the George source of Youtube Right. I mean that is an anti Semitic conspiracy. Also I wanNA raise got George Soros money. Etc.. Re George Soros money. fucking pony up. George Soros Worth. A multi-billionaire right I don't know anything about him. I wish was. Early early days when everybody was like, there was less money involved people. WanNa. Be Filmmakers. They saw TV, and they're like all. We WanNA do skits and special effects and comedy. Like. That's when I make you know made you too early on like you know, we'd watch quarter digital digital Freddie, W. Shake Carl who sort of guess increases in the past couple of years Kassim g like all of. That are just having fun doing skits, and like making content, and it seems like now. There's this huge huge huge population of content. That's just like what's something that we can share Meta content. Real exactly and like some of it is more like you know like criticisms of pop culture and I think that stuff is fine, but then you get like the real dark stuff where it's like attacks on people's personalities and a lot of this. Speculation I mean even like the whole thing with with. Where you're just like what is going. Fan but it was just as. Entertainment for people like nobody actually cared it was it was like? Let's just go all in and like watch the spectacle. ooh! Yeah I felt bad for how how everyone just like who gives a fuck if? It doesn't affect any, but I think there are honestly I think another problem is that there's like a really large. I think there's some kind of weird political movement online where it's like the people who walk around saying Cook that actually think that's funny. People. Who say CUCK and Soy unrelentingly? There's a lot of people on Youtube. And they're the people that think that I dubs is a copper, and they think that that is actual insult. Like the the ACA. Because that was like the main acquisition was bright, and it didn't. Even simp- doesn't make sense at all because he's getting it, yeah. WHO PAYS doesn't get it right. He doesn't pay and just like the whole thing was just like Let's light something on fire. But Cock also I. Guess does make more sense, even though not really it still doesn't. Really make any sense either. Yeah those labels work. Yeah, yeah, it's it's very strange. I like some days were. Things go on and on, and you've never had anything like severe. How but? I just can't imagine having to like. Live in that fear of Oh. My Gosh this like he did nothing and then. All of this happened for no choice, a lot of. Forget that you like a real person, yes? It was his had nothing to do. With I've been feeling like that for years to like meeting in for the first time. He's like a drastically different person. You would think yeah. I think the problem is like the audience of like has. Like. He's Ed Lord. Them when you're making a graph and science, you call it like extrapolation. Points what you think is going on like what you know is going on, and then you just go beyond that, and that's what people have done. It seemed like they sort of see this thing that Ian is and they sort of just assume outside of what they've seen like who he is a person. Yeah, and then when he does something that sort of counters that or maybe you know. Maybe he changes, learn something new or had a debate with somebody where he you know realized. Maybe he was thinking about something wrong, and then he changed his opinions, and all of a sudden everybody. WHO's like? Like freaking out, he's not like US yeah I think. The same thing happened to me. Is that like back in the day? We were doing all these. Like who's really making fun of social justice whereas. The Fun thing to do so much good content and they're so fun to make fun of, and it's not necessarily a partisan thing, but it did court a lot of very conservative edge lords who actively hate women and are actually I would say Talk Conservative right me. Not I'm not I'm not. That's not critique of conservatism. It's more like people who are like insoles and hate women and things to people who are who have our sex workers are like immoral stuff like that. Yeah, and so I quoted a lot of these people and I think that's a lot of the people who are angry at me. Today is because I think I did make a conscious effort throughout the past several years to kind of make it very clear that I do not share the same values of these people. You know and when you're making content, though it's like it's just sometimes like you're trying to be entertaining and sometimes poking buttons, poking and stuff like that is entertaining, and then people take it too seriously..

"osman" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Background to Charles Osman Charles let's try and slow it down and let's let's give them an idea of what nano technology is we've been through a pretty heavy duty session here on where the net may be going okay and the to do connect to each other and that's why we spent all right let's just and then perhaps we should back wait I just look at nanotech right in at the time of this what is nano technology it's probably one of the most misunderstood I I'm being about going up is probably the most misunderstood terms and probably most poorly connected to the reality of what it actually has because it is such a diffuse and broad range concept isn't it's not just a single sign on for a single thing to do it covers almost every aspect of chemistry physics computing materials science medicine that is is so enormous that it's very difficult to capsule rise but I will try to offer a one sentence glimpse I have a branching node from which you can extrapolate it up occasions all right it's the mechanical manipulation of atoms or molecules to perform some kind of a process or to assemble into something or to become something that it is not currently now otherwise said little machines a little machine is one of many implementations let me give you an example in the previous before the break we had talked about how fast we make up the processor device correct my answer was well if we are going to super conductivity almost and you've just bought yourself an order of magnitude or better the problem is how do you make superconductors semiconductors sounds like a mouthful but that's what it means while by current days solution based chemistry standards you're not going to now the most recent discoveries and they were kind of almost like alchemy and a sensor something that accident per se and I don't want to detract from doctor to understand for the fans and the others who had theorized about these non crystalline construct a conductive materials that could be superconducting select how long story in itself but it's kind of strange and meandering path where finally a sort of work but it wasn't exactly a direct result of what sort of works okay Stamfordham Shinseki many years ago this goes back to early seventies talk to us on the call the glass diode it was an organic substrate that could have I'm sorry semiconductor properties and everybody laughed and thought he was wrong and he was rejected very solid by the government he would try to get funding from deleting concerning one of Monsanto's Saturday when the snow and lived in Japan this year by the way give that I forget that the company but it's in Japan they're going online with a it's like a paint almost even sprayed or painted onto any surface are using mylar for instance it rolled up like like like flex around rap or something you can put this material on any surface and in Africa very effective solar collectors very inexpensive less than a tenth of the cost of silicon counterparts you paint on a solar collector in a sense yes never to be part of the material prefabricated comes in a role but it's it's a gel like material that can be applied to a surface and again it is in a sense of food before it's applied now he's proved that a non crystal material could behave like a semiconductor from that sort of first step it was also theorized that perhaps there could be non crystalline superconductors and this is where doctor to work over her staffer came at and now there's a whole class of rare earth doped ceramics that are non crystalline substrate they contain little nanocrystals if you will that interconnect each other but it's still residing in a non crystalline substrate and yet there so you are so far out for me I'm losing this what is it you're saying this is what I'm saying is that using nano technology one can invent a material yes responded to an engineering requirements and I'll give you an example there is a new class of materials called four reasons for rooms are cages of carbon filament little balls will Aqaba office they're all they come in tubes now another configuration and so on yeah I was invented by Dr Smalley of Rice University but now there's a whole bunch of Comey's actually producing a commercial product why would you want to do this because once you have these located in carbon you can then put elements and molecules other materials inside the cadence of carbon cages and then you can buy into these cages together and invent a new matrix of material that would never formed under natural conditions or with traditional solution which would which would do for example what well I want a fabricator superconductor that can operate at the temperature range of my choosing and this is one really really narrow example I think we'll just put that alone does and people are trying to solve this problem now all of for example for instance there's a company called meter.
"osman" Discussed on How I Built It
"Hey everybody in welcome to another episode of how I build the podcast that asks. How did you build that? We are in episode one sixty four today and I am talking to my friend. Matty Osman Matty has a unique approach to her business and agency. And it's mostly around getting gigs on fiber selling online courses on skill share and other marketplaces. When she first told me about this I was blown away. I have not had good experience with the online course marketplaces like you to me. And so they've kind of left a bad taste in my mouth I didn't think that somebody living in the United States could make a good income off of fiber and Mattie proved me wrong on all accounts she offers she offers. Fantastic advice on how you can get started to with Both selling on fiber other marketplaces things to think about. And of course the important rules you need to make sure you stay in these marketplaces good graces. Which has helped her considerably. She's inspired me to start looking into some of this stuff and I will certainly be more open to opportunities as they across my inbox. So thank you matt for that. Let's get in to this episode.

How did you build that today? My guest is a good friend of mine. Her name is Mattie Osman she is the N. Seo content strategist at the blog. Smith Matt How are you today? You know definitely ready for a podcast in as I told you going for a rehearsal. Dinner Tasting Raiders. The right researcher that yeah awesome awesome. Well I am. I'm happy that this is the appetizer. To what will hopefully be main course. We didn't plan that friends and listeners. We didn't plan that Today we are talking about Essentially diversifying your income as a freelancer or small business owner. And matty. I'm having you on the show because in our mastermind group together and you talked about things like skill share and fiver which were not avenues that I've ever considered. I'm curious to hear how you're using them and how it helped your business but I wasn't. You tell people who you are and what you do so on Joe is saying I do. Seo Content creation of my own company is called the blog Smith and primarily work with wordpress brands Favorite community but also do some technology content creation and Every once in a while get innocent stuff out of left field like aged do content really carpet cleaner Contact like local emergency vet so my processes such. I try to get in touch with the people on you. Know whatever client working with team to to get whatever knowledge? I'm missing and then just help them by creating contacts. Most people don't WanNa do it. And they don't have the patience for it and some of them just never really cared that much about styling. Your grammar saw. I'm happy to be that person for them. Awesome awesome and so. That's you touched on an interesting point there already And that's kind of like gathering that domain knowledge I. I create videos tutorial videos where people and if I don't already know the product I have to go and learn the product so it sounds like you you kind of work with somebody closely on the team to learn the by best techniques for carpet cleaning or whatever. Yeah so I mean in the word world. It's definitely easier for me to sort of take read on a project. Find whatever information is missing in obviously the most direct way to find that answers go through the client but if it's something like how to set up a certain plugging in You know taking screen shots that documenting process digitally something that I can cobble together on my own but ba for things where it's like that's definitely not something I ever studied. I've found that I just adding Interview components of I process of writing each Wi- pose. It's a really effective way to get that subject matter expertise without having to go and scour like scientific articles via research helps to supplement whatever somebody says but they can make themselves available than we can kind of see each other a lot of time by just asking questions getting answers and Bana ignorant from there. Yeah for sure and like research I mean like you said it should be supplementary right. If you don't even know what terms to search your search is going to go poorly At least it's GonNa take a lot longer I will link to The CORTEX podcast. Cgp Gray youtuber talks about how when he does these like deeply research videos and he always gets thrown down rabbit holes so I will make sure to link to that other problems research. Yeah for sure. Awesome and so I you. This is your company and you work with a lot of brands and so first. Let's talk about before we look at these other marketplaces. What is your primary way for getting clients or what may be was your primary way for getting clients. I let's say now maybe for the past year or two on the primary way I'm getting clients is a massive word of mouth Within the wordpress community especially because and found that do good work for one person.

Dr. James Taylor on Chronic Pain and How CBD Inspired a Transformation in The Waiting Room
"Today I'm really excited because I'm joined by doctor. James Taylor from North Carolina in some of my home stomping grounds in the southeast James. Thanks so much for being willing to take the time and speak with me today or Jason. It's modern thank you. Yeah totally okay so just to prime our listeners a bit. Do you mind speaking a little bit about the work that you do. And how it connects to to Hampton CD and all that so are merely a pain physician we have seven pink clinics in North Carolina it was the opioid crisis. Prices that got me involved. Oh in the CBD space About two years ago as premiers coming from medical boards and hospital administrators straighter on We've got to change the way we manage pain CBD came up and opportune time for our medical practice to look figure out what is what do or what is it not do. Offer patients in pain It was very taboo back then in North Carolina to Even even think about this bring it into our a practice So initially when we did that we had a symposium and we brought a lot of people to the symposium we brought the police sheriffs departments attorneys board and members You know anybody we could think of that. Might want to object and so we gave him the opportunity to object if we were going to bring. CD into the State of North Carolina and start using it with the patients No one objected They all agreed were in the middle of an opioid crisis. And we gotta pull out every tool we possibly can use in order to positively affect that So our journey only began their our. We studied some patients and felt good about continuing to recommend this to our patients. And we've just continued to try to understand this this even better of of what it's doing for these folks and how we can positively impact. Their lives in that journey has been a very up and down journey journey. A- and so being new into the cannabis space You just don't realize all the variables that you're going to have to deal with but it seems like we take two steps forward one step back. Three three steps forward four steps back in so that kind of roller coaster. I'm understanding what folks in the canvas world have been up against so the last number of years. Yeah and I've got to say I'm a little surprised that there wasn't much resistance in those early conversations. But that's that's great to hear as well just that there's A desire to try to bring in any safe tools that can be brought in to try to alleviate some of those opioid problems that we're that we're dealing with now and what it What forms of? CBD are being administered in North Carolina. Because I have to admit I'm not super familiar with what's Osman going on there. Recently are people using Like tinctures or edibles different. What types of products are they engaging will primarily tincture In our medical practice we stuck with tincture. We wanted to keep it simple. Yeah you know. Our patients aren't the the most educated and we typically serve the poor and the elderly orderly So we didn't want to bring a large variety of different things so the tincture. We kept it simple. But in the state of North Carolina of of him stores are opening up all over the place that have Food products the smokable him The tinctures bay products The whole Gamut You know the North Carolina and FDA. They have come out a pretty strongly to say. Hey we don't want this food products right but they still sell them. And nobody's out a monitoring regulating them in. Uh we'll see where all that end. Yeah it's it was interesting to me to see Saw Picture very recently of a store in Tennessee that was a CD slash him dispensary and it was set up very similarly to all the cannabis dispensaries. You see you out here on the West Coast or in states that have legalized. But it's all hemp products. That's fascinating to me. That that's spreading across the country and giving people access to canvas products even if it's in that limited CD sense that they wouldn't have access to otherwise. Have there been to your knowledge. Any issues regarding Product safety contaminations or MHM product consistency in that realm. Oil is for the public standpoint. I don't think the public of of see's much of that. I think there's a couple of news articles where some product came in how they came from out West that probably contained. THC mother was not a hemp to rob product worked but there has not been a lot of media attention on Tainted are bad product of now we have a laboratory and we do testing So half my patients take a product that we kind of oversee from growth to extraction the other half of my patients take products they get online So that's very good for me. I'm able to see what these other products are In the new all take sometimes these products from the patient and test them and see what's in them in so we're discovering quite a bit Eh. What's on the label is not necessarily what's in the bottle? Yeah you know tattle on anybody But I think it's a bigger problem than we all realize. Yeah I completely agree just for my own analytical work that I've seen there's Quite a lot of inconsistency batch to batch When manufacturers are making products and then sometimes the differences in product compared to label sometimes that's genuine just product manufacturing variability and sometimes it's militias sometimes? It's just outright companies lying in order to get product somewhere where they it can be sold. Can you speak a little bit to how you know. So you specialize in pain in trying to to help people deal with particularly Egli chronic pain How do patients seem to be reacting and under what kind of dosages yet great question so when we initially brought it into our practice We took one hundred patients in. We studied them at that point. We didn't know that there were different. CANNABINOID profiles we didn't didn't know how to dose it We just did not know a lot. We just put this bottle of CBD in front of a hundred patients And said take a half a dropper twice a day and that should last in thirty days and now come back and tell us what happens and we follow them over about a three month period of time so with not even much knowledge we Able to gain so much insight. Now's a pain physician. We were looking for a pain reduction and of them. Not Needing their opioids And what we found on our initial survey is there. Pain did not affect their pain whatsoever. but what we found or was number one. They slept so much better interesting. He came back other sleep. Went from about four four and a half hours to six hours a night and they started reporting that they were dreaming though so we set. Gosh this is good. You're sleeping better. You're dreaming you're getting more restful sleep deep someone who's got a chronic medical condition. This is very valuable to give you that a rejuvenation of that you need in order to face the next day With your continued chronic condition. The second thing they came to us and told us is that they're anxiety level was less that they were less anxious in. They found that when they were having an anxiety flare instead of reaching for alcohol or Benzodiazepine which we know those plus narcotic will equals death? They were reaching the battle hymn the very quickly they realized if they took other tincture within twenty thirty minutes their prices was starting to dissipate. And so we saw this as risk reduction. Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly. So we can protect our patients out. This is a wonderful reason to continue to pursue those. Yeah and that actually echoes a lot of what I've heard from other physicians and nurses. That have talked to that. Sometimes the therapeutic response you get from canvas product isn't necessarily a direct reduction of the symptoms that you're necessarily targeting but Hits other symptoms that accompany that problem that over time are likely to have a positive effect on the core issue that you're trying to treat as well is it's interesting to hear about People people starting to dream again so that indicates that REMM cycles must be being established for anybody. That's sort of unaware have chronic pain. Wake you up constantly throughout the night and so it's hard for your body. Hit actually sink into the. You know that that depressed and to these rim cycles where you'd really Be Having having you know more lucid dreaming and that sort of more intense dreams And so that super fascinating and there's a lot of debate out there right now about how. CBD Canvas Broadly Affect Sleep is there are mixed voices about that and especially when THC's involves so it's interesting to hear from your perspective and a place that is not dealing with thc that you're seeing positive outcomes with sleep 'cause in areas where they are working with thc it's not what has straightforward. Is that because T- can actually interrupt rim cycles and end. It depends person a person of course to we also so saw that initial observational study. The patients came back instead. They were hopeful and for it. I is perplexed us You know we did. It's a literature. Search found that yes. D- Aachen affects. Serotonin Osso we thought. This was a mild anti depressant effect But over the course of of these last years we realized it's more than that it's neurogenesis it's neuro plasticity. These patients brains. Were starting to grow into win. Your brain starts to develop new luke pathways you all of a sudden have hope you don't patients who are in pain. Chronic pain I think have a form of PTSD you know and they just can't. There's just stock. They don't know life is going to be like this the rest of their life. It's never going to get better kinda stuck in this. RUT IN CD allowed them to have hope in that hope of translated into a lot of positive things in our clinic before our waiting room was it was awful as miserable place to be ENSO's very depressing But all of a sudden replaying reggae music people are talking to each other and sharing. Their experiences really changed our atmosphere of our clinics.
Royal Family 'Caught Off Guard' By Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Statement
"Yesterday. Talked on here about making markle and Prince Harry's decision to take a step back from their roles as senior members of the royal family. They also announced that they'd be splitting their time between the UK and North America while this story is obviously still unfolding and oh baby. We've got so much more talk about today. Apparently after yesterday's official instagram statement from Harry and Meghan which is so funny that this all went down on instagram of all things but anyway after their instagram post yesterday about an hour later spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth. The second send out her own announcement. It had kind univer fraught tone and read quote. Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand the desire to take take a different approach but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through and quote so clearly the the Royal Family is not not on the same page is here in Megan and obviously everyone in the entire world is freaking out about this and I've gotta say the statement that the Queen released not only sounds angry angry and tone. It looks angry on the page. It's like if you look at it. It's like on a stark white piece of stationery in like all cops aerial font it. It has like a red royal communications crest at the top. Obviously they had no time to send this to the Royal Department of Graphic Design and anyway apparently apparently a source close to the royals spoke with people dot com and people described the new insider Info saying quote insiders. Tell people that the ninety the three year old monarch and senior members of the royal family including Prince Charles and Prince William were caught off guard. By the release of the couple's statement on Wednesday and quote according to the Sun. The Queen is said to be disappointed that no family members were consulted before the statement was sent out. I love that Harry and Meghan in just completely ghosted the royal family there were just like now. We're done by girl buying I think I think it's great. I think it's cool this source. Who spoke folks should people also said quote? There's a lot of hurt about this end quote. I mean from what I'm hearing the Queen and her whole royal family entourage entourage seem way more vocally upset about this than any of the Prince Andrew stuff. That's been going on but you know priorities. I guess since a lot of people are saying that Harry and Meghan might move back to his hometown of La. I've gotta read you this tweet. My Friend Nadia Osmond Roach. She's at Miss. Nadia Osman she she wrote quote. Damn Megan markle moving back to La in time for pilot season How convenient to come back to America in January end quote

"osman" Discussed on How I Found My Voice
"Renou several hours into the journey to the remote island of Pulau survivors. Survivors are trying to rest conserve. Their energy on they'll need all the strength they have. They volunteered to be Maroon for forty days and forty nights up. This is the story of survivor semi various essentially what turned into a brother-in-law. That's the biggest biggest format. Oh my in. The history of television is just some people stranded on a desert island And you know there are lots of each other. That's the basic principle and they've been lots of different iterations rations of that in a rare display of been hybrid went. See We Clo- at the festival had other people and I thought well that's interesting and then when I was at plenty twenty four there was a boss who I thought. God is. 'cause you're the boss anyone's interests. I wonder what would happen if week by week. We can vote off the least popular member of staff. And you know. I think he'd be the first is to go and put those two things together. Really in this survive. I've never made a penny out of it. which is absolutely fine but You know that was one. I'm very proud of because I think kickstarted uh lots of different television. Lots of the teeth. The first reality TV show really and that was it. Wavy show when America what what would spin off effects of that show well survival. Let let every show you've ever see where people get voted off since she said at least a big brother that leads to Popeye on x factor taking from Opportunity knocks. You know at least two that. The soporific ation of those sort of time. It shows and documentaries so did that in terms of game shows. I mean we took him more. Credit Has To go to Glen Hugo deal deal which is a small endgame of a Dutch lottery show and turned it into this sort of this sort of powerhouse in the East ed opening boxes yeah presented the exactly and that was that was the I mean I think I could. I could be misused. I think ended up being more. Oh profitable and big brother for us. Various spinoffs that was that was a proper analysis show. Anything is just a great Rolls Royce of a format You always seem to have had the childlike sense of fun about the business. You take very seriously which is divided game shows but you'll never childish am. I wonder if you'll conscious of that. I think that it's it's it's a good question a very short attention span on Sunday. Saying that for me I think. Listen because because my dad left when I was young and I and pretty didn't deal with is what does it could I think the eight year old me. A SORTA preserved in amber somewhere I find very very easy to talk to you on a find a very very easy to get inside his head and you know that the young told me. was anyone a young kid. You're interested in what's new. What's next you know anything you watch anything you see? It gives you an idea for something else or you know you. You're seeing things in you for the first time so so much and your brain is constantly making the connections nations and I think that's I if I have any school is that it's the S- to make connections and put things together. That haven't been together before I'd like to have a bit more earnestness if I'm honest but I'll I'll take him out. John Misses I have there was a seven. Take a bidding war for the rights to your first novel which is Crime Thriller Coming Into Twenty again. Dan feels that something. You've put real care. Evidently what is it about. Can you tell us why did you write it. I wrote of always been a writes in something I'd always I wanted to do. So it's not something that's something to cash in on of always wanted to write crime book and they she my kids a little bit older now in about eighteen months ago. I do actually have some time now and I had this idea. I've into visit a retirement village like a very high in retirement village full of very bright people in the seventies and eighties. And I thought well. This'll be great any is beautiful. It's sort of fifty acres of rolling countryside and I thought it would be an amazing place for murder and also thought. I bet these people here would be able to solve that murder. And so that Sorta gave me the idea. And it's this thing that Thursday modcloth about four retirees in the seventies and eighties. One used to be a spy. MOM's a trade union leader was a nurse countries and each week. They sort of they they meet up look over old unsolved cases And then there's a real murder and they involve themselves in that murder as soon as I started writing that and got the voices of those characters. Delighted me you know. I couldn't stop. It's fascinating as well because you have this background both in creating games and then also having worked on sitcoms and things so much of what your success flat is putting real characters into a kind of game show scenario which emerged mystery is as as much as something that house of games pitting different against different rounds. We'll hope the book is very real I'm not interested in. I not really big on science only finance on fantasy and stuff I like things to be like the real world but yeah but what would happen if you know I find that interesting. And that's the voice able to him. I'm able to right and I think but some. I hope that some is a puzzle and I enjoyed the puzzle of Royston and I uh-huh people enjoy the puzzle of working out as well but it's been listening to everything I've done really the voice of it. He just didn't all okay. That's that's the thing that I've been and edging towards its cancellation of everything done When I read it through I sort of you know Ian Rankin? The crime rights. He said look finding voices the key if you want to write the plot and all that kind of stuff that is if you've got it you got it but if you have a voice you got nothing and I read it through. Oh okay the stuff. That I thought was a bit wasn't as good as other books about it is my voice I get it. I get that I get. I get that it's kind of very sort sort of lower middle class sensibility. But that's able to kind of go across the different generations and different classes and stuff like that. You know I feel. It's like stateless in that regard. There's no jokes in it but I think it's funny and hopefully very loving about people but at the same time has an awful murder at the hardware and mystery and something something. Something kind of wrong has happened and that someone needs to fix what a really pick up talking to. You is how much you care about. Democracy how authentic your passion is for you do. I know it's really interesting that you're interested in reality and not kind of fantasy and I was was thinking back to the thing about the seventies especially early seventies is look at the data and this is one tattoo I know is we never had a more social equality The the the sort of earnings divide was very very low in that was partly to do with taxation payoff. Upper middle class. People were more opposite middle class. People were more likely to get to the same schools as working class people then compared to now and I wonder if it means that someone like you is particularly equipped to be looking at the kind of challenge of modern Britain by questionable leading up to is someone programs genuinely cross class divides you even co presented an election night show. Do you ever think about going into politics in some way to heal the nation. Richard won't listen. The I'm I'm very interested in hitting the nation. You know the thing that the thing that upsets me most about politics at the moment is is the way we speak to each other and the way we've lost ability to disagree agreed with each other and so I think our current political systems. The system is done. I think I think it's cooked. I think Listen with living with the law. Swish of the dinosaurs tail at at the moment is my opinion. So what comes up to Replace that cost. That's a that's an opportunity. Also terrible danger. Isn't it because you do. You know anyone you can take a bunch of a vacuum and vacuum is essentially what's been created. In my opinion. It could be very wrong about that so quite how one gets involved in politics these days. I think a very interesting question because I wouldn't do by being a Labour liberal Tory councillor. I wouldn't do it by becoming prospective parliamentary candidate or anything like that the people that I admire most people who are just whatever's happening in the world they're getting on a community level of juryman stormy things for people and helping seven people in activism which is something that I don't have the gene for but I admire enormously admire admire anyone with with the community spirit to actually get out community and help people in putting money with mouth as and put their time Where their mouth is? And if I had a role to play I would always rather be a behind the scenes. We we see. I've always just thinking with you with you. Know you look at data and I I just think is there a role for a consultant. I'm sure but you know you need a frontman or front. Woman is the truth and Farraj is a is a is a terrific frontman for the for the things that he represents. What else people are? Talking about Dominic Cummings and it has to be brought in Iran. The kind of the U. campaign seemed to be a bit of a producer with a kind of game. Show idea of how you win the referendum. Listen it's not even a game. She was just understanding. Why People D- What do why people like what they like why people vote for what for what they vote for certain much what people say on social media and the the other I see what is the? What are you trying to achieve by doing that? That's a question I always on so I'd say anything talk. What is the end goal? They're saying that. I read a lot on twitter from people on the left where I think. I think you're doing the opposite of what you're saying you're doing here and I think adding fuel to a fire and possibly you are trying to make yourself feel a little bit better and listen. I understood it. We've all been driven insane. Okay I get that but I do think some people have to hold the whole themselves together and just say no actually we want to achieve something right we wanNA world this fairer more equitable world of greater opportunity word kinder a world. That's more socially liberal by those are things I think we mostly agree on. And certainly if you want to win an election there are enough people in the country. He will agree with those things to do it and you think well. Why is that proving so difficult? Why are we what A? Why are we not able to join together and work that out and it's a lot to do with the way we speak to reach other? That's a lot to do with the way we communicate at the moment. And the right who.

"Firemen San. He's my friend he's Richards. It was just telling me before. Is that right yes well. I'm yes that's great great thing. I mean I thought it would go for one series. Maybe too serious. I've thus far been proved wrong. How many been writing for ten years now and you've got spin offs because celebrity versions which is which is huge? I think in terms of pound per viewer is the most successful show history which is quite something. Uh I wonder what it's like having a brother who's also in shape business he's in what was I. Hit Ninety Span. But it's still in a going and is still critically acclaimed matt was in Sweden isn't swayed and I'm fascinated by the few great survivors of the ninety s brick. Prepare who still to use that dreadful jog and creating great content but. I wonder if it's a coincidence. Coincidence do you compare notes on how you create again. The fact that you're both still kind of in your prime on a side note on one of the few people who still he believes that using the what content is a good idea Listen he so cool my brother and some amazing be proud of what he did. Because everyone's brothers in a band right and they absolutely you know they made and it and it's lovely seeing them now all back together all sort of very fit. which tells you something about one swayed story? I was a plant Belfast. To fill my show Saturday morning live and suddenly thought I think that's Brett Anderson. You're drowning I was surrounded by other members of swayed and they were all wearing suits like in inception. Shen surprise me. I remember once being also festival walking down the ramblas how beautiful and colorful is just like the colors and the noises and then suddenly just as water black calms down five members of Suede head to toe in and I've there's never been any competition between the two of us because very remote and I could never be in a band ever. It's not my thing to my heart is from the mainstream and his heart is he. Very artistic is very much on the fringes. The things and I think he's brought that into the mainstream. Hopefully I bought mainstream slightly more to his side as well but we're we are. We have very different sensibilities and so I think. Go from me with very very proud of each other. That's lovely so much Karen Kraft goes into your shows. The question formats the fact that there's always a chance further whoever's behind to come back in the next game why does making this kind of TV mattis much read care about it. I do care about it because listen we on this. Ah Very Long. And they're many great people to do many great things not a heart surgeon. I'm not an engineer. Any of these things but you know I think that I think it's incredibly important to think about television in a certain way you know we talk about film film criticism and we think we're in the age of film or the age of music historians look back and say. Now you're in the television as the Adrian this this is the great medium of our time. That's interesting you say that because is you'll know there's all this talk about Television Dad. The future is all online stream. You give me a look yes. Tell me why you disagree because television as she never been listening. That's that's why I said I'm the I'm over reasonable content because you know which wherever you put it. BBC to Channel Four or whether it's union net flicks over the stream new cheap. You know it's still people out with stories and narratives and and former twins attain you and this one is in the corner of everybody's room pretty much. Everybody can afford folded you. It's it's such a sort of honor and a privilege to to work in that world. If you work in film and a million people can see your film. That's one of the biggest films of all time. If you're an abandoned a million people by record you're one of the biggest bands on the planet. If you could save a million people watch it you know nothing is trees you might you might as well be zero. You know you're you looking at you. Know eight nine. Ten million makes a huge hits television show and those numbers. I don't think people really understand. I think people the only you think that's similar is a supermarket or political party. These are the people that you need millions upon millions upon millions. And I think that you it's beholding the pump people to television as well as they possibly can think people off throwaway or some. You know it's it's sort of some nonsense for the the masses and you think well you know what it isn't it's just about the most important medium there. Is You also question about film points. No one knows anything. The people in that stuff never do the second you about television sitcoms game shows. Everyone knows everything why. That's the age that we live in an so shoot soak in front of our face that we don't even notice it you know. I think it's the most powerful medium and my only job would be to try and do my bit of it as well as I can. Did you always want to work in TV right up. This is such a great question. Because almonds me sportswriter really as well. I want us to do. What kind of sport everything? Everything everything I never thought I never ever thought unexcited not only worked in television. I wouldn't just Lewis Credits. I didn't know anybody did it. And when I left university do they just have it in the paper looking for researchers for something and I thought well I'll do that was it. It was a a am a video games programme Oregon on sky one and this is the first one was this has been ninety two and it was very kind of yeah threatened together and I thought well give that a go. 'cause I just written an article funny enough about Computer Games and a good in fund enough. I got into that job because the woman who interview moves a terrible SNOB and she said why you went to Cambridge University. What can you tell to somebody who lives on a council estate embezzled and I said well I was born on a council seat and bitter is five months and I think I'll be okay and that's what got me the job and on the first in that firmly enough of in there I thought of course this is the job for me? This is this you are trained for. My whole life of Sam watched out of his mind tire. Light of invented look games for ever ever ever but for some reason my head. I haven't occurred to me. That was the thing for me but from day one yet here we go. I found it. This is this is where I should be. Tell tell me about the little games you will always inventing listen. I grew up in the seventies and eighties. When we didn't have anything to be Internet's no nothing long summer holidays I would always lie? It's a classical the World Cup of everything which is what's the best Crisps chocolate ball was the animal was the best pretty Sitcom stuff that you play along at home and it's just a knockout competition. But I used to do that when I was like nine ten. I do a right down to thirty thirty favorite bands and then draw them against each other night. Work at my. My favorite band was and stuff like that you always loved doing. The audit united invent cricket. Teams are football teams. Play against each other. I'd always be lying down with paper and a pen funny enough off in the book. The work up of everything in the acknowledgements. I thank ten-year-old me I said you know I did my first one at ten work bands and look at how administer monetize is this and I thought he might be quite proud of that and so after this first job working on that video games program. What was your career path to Andy up running end mall? I'm a fairly quickly. I went to Comey Hatrick. He people would know very well. I'm GonNa have I got news for you. And he's anyway a lot of heads and dairy girls lows and those of good stuff and Jimmy Mobile. Who ran that sort of saw something in me and let me do so? Why wanted really for the first thing I did? There was a show with my first call. David young went onto full company. Twelve yard who she sold fit for a million. It was a comedy show in the two stones. Were at David Simon Pegg but first of that type. I don't think still exists anywhere. But that was the first. That was my first introduction to hat trick nick and in there I invented my Sitcom I created and produced stuff reminds us some of the things he created will then that was my first job at their uses uses of work on his lines. Anyway which was a lot of fun I did a panel. Show that if I were the world which is still the assurance Sweden. I still get royalties from Sweden freedom. which which which? I appreciate Sococo boys when I was there. Which is about boy band starring? A very young James Corden has since gone onto other things and so I've been there a few years and then a guy end about which tiny when I went about twenty of them in a house on on square in Bloomsbury and the Guy Running Greco Tim hangs knew me through this through someone instead. Lychee fancy coming in and I say well with him. TV's TV's or without teams about partnerships you have to have a you have to have a great ownership and we got on very well so city do that that sounds like fun and that was twenty years ago and stayed the say there ever since and we went from twenty people to nine thousand people within ten years fun. I mean. It's interesting acting because you pairing on cameron becoming a broadcaster is relatively recent but as a producer you have power and I'm interested in how your voice works how you muzio voices. Our producer over that time was fascinating as a producer genuinely might producing career was enormous amount more successful presenting career. But you never. I've never been to beat the better because the second year on screen. There's some sort of magic there's some kind of alchemy that happens. People absolutely lose their minds. If you make an idea something the way we did it you know if you queasy play through one hundred tons of anyone ever sees it you know you'll sit and play implant plant and change and make it better make it worse you know if whatever big Hook you go on the middle of it everything around it has to work perfectly and I love that process of just refining refining refining. And then you know the second you've got something good you take it to the BBC Eli Eli TV Channel Film and Try and set it on the cell as well. I love to sell US my love to if I think something that someone should have you know. I love being able to persuade someone that got some great for different kind of voice that you have to use a different so no I don't think it is because it's it's the same instincts thinks of cost me on the table when I'm sending something to them is exactly the same as the TV viewer other than they've got three pound to spend on something and you know the thing that I think they might like Mike. What's the thing I'm proud of having success? That's a very good question. The first showing at the weather I massive show that was survivor..

"Christmas I want you to take me back to the seventy s and your childhood and what was home like well. Goodness I mean the the the the seventies would be split into two parts the bit before that left and the bit autry left. I suppose but some I think I had a very kind of sort of happy talented counted or felt it. At the time I came from a sort of a kind of low sort of working class family that was just about blossoming into into lower middle class Like most families in the nineteen seventies at close family on my mother's side and the United States. Christmas isn't that kind of stuff is just a very big family occasion and Yeah I just had uh one of those challenges where we had zero money. But I don't think I knew that at the time and that sort of semi late in life because now it got a bit of money I think think I appreciate it and you've already mentioned your father. There was a trauma of your father walking out in the family when you were child. What effect did it have on you? Well I mean if you'd asked me at the time I would have said Nana tool I would have said I took it in my stride. I was eight nine. That sort of that sort of as my brother was older so I would have said I help himself together very well. Of course anyone who does not get into your thirties anything. Oh I see. I didn't hold myself together. Very what tool I sort of was pretended to be something That I wasn't so I think there's a really formative moment in my life And you know I think that I think that it it was offer trauma but you know. It's the inability to deal with the initiatives and it's not the trauma we will have and I think I didn't deal with it blatantly but I think since I have dealt with it better and a lot of people who grew up in the seventies did watch a lot of television and I think we also played a lot of board games. What did you watch him play? I'm listening I'm absolutely there's let's be working. TV He don't watch TV. It's always driven me. Insane I honestly very upper middle middle class on the whole. I think. I'm very unionized about this. I think it I think if you didn't grow up what if you can't sort of take me through Pulled every second counts than I than you should be allowed to work. In tally. Sally I think that I watched nonstop television even though many had three channels we didn't even get Channel Four. I was down near Brighton when Channel Four can get it for five years.

The world has never been more convenient. What is that doing to us?
"As it sounds like the invention of canned beans. We've gone to canned goods than we invented washing machine. Everything we have done has been about making our lives easier that in and of itself is not about thing. It's very good thing but with a i technology the options now are making our choices the matter of lifting a finger instead of actually physically washing the walking to a washing machine gene and doing the actual labor. We're not doing labor anymore. We're not doing anything that requires some effort some thinking some inconvenience everything we're choosing and everything that's being offered to us is about making life easier simpler and frankly less rewarding. Is there a threshold somewhere that we crossed because to your point. I don't think anybody would argue that. The invention of the dishwasher or washing machine was a bad thing but there's it's gotta be a line somewhere where it goes from things that are freeing us up to make the most of our time to things that are actively discouraging us from interacting interacting with the world. Will i think if you think about it think about the technology that is available when you take something as basic as social media area and how pervasive it is it appalls me when i'm walking home from work and i see pretty much i would say ninety five percent of the people walking with their face into their their phones not looking at anybody on the street not bothering to see which direction they're going. They just kind of do it like they're a bunch of drones walking down the sidewalk and even that it's just we are so programmed to be osman's. Almost it's now. I think that's the threshold and it's only people that are a little bit alarmed by the fact that menial chores banality l'idee things like that are actually something to embrace instead of something to shun. They're the ones that i think are going to kind of lead a counter revolution and take back some of the the more boring stuff of their life and find satisfaction in it that gets at what i was going to ask you next 'cause i can't and i hope i'm i hope i'm only speaking for myself but i don't think that i am i can't find satisfaction in walking four blocks to pick up my food when it could just be brought brought to me or to use your example. I don't find any satisfaction in assembling furniture like i will pay just moved. I will pay whatever it costs to not do that and i don't know when my brain switched and maybe it was just because it became an option not to have to yeah i get your point but do you find satisfaction picking up your phone and ordering something online like. Does it make you happy to have food delivered to your doorstep. Stop instead of taking the time the thought and the preparation in buying your groceries actually spending the time to prepare para dish that you've thought about and put care into. I don't know if you've kids or if you have a family but do you actually get satisfaction out of feeding your kids is giving them a great meal hearing them say dad while that was a great dinner. Thank you so much. I would love to hear say that for the record but she's not going to know no. I i do find that when you go to the market and buy your vegetables in the morning and spend the afternoon cooking you take more time with your food food to taste it to experience it. <hes> and you want the people around you to figure out the word enjoy it. Yes yeah you feel much better about it right and and i guess what fascinated me about your piece is trying to figure out what that is actually doing to us the process of not engaging like it's one thing to say like garden even notice that i i ordered my and i ate it but do we know what that is doing to us. What toll that takes well. I think i interviewed i. I think she's in the story. Her name was making caselli and she's a stand up comedian in toronto and i absolutely loved what she said so she he told me how her and her partner east love getting up in the morning they'd have piece of paper sitting on their counter instead of itemize list plugged into their phone and they would have things to do like pick up the dry cleaning <hes> maybe go by some fresh flowers at the market things like <hes> they would walk around. They would say hi to their neighbors. They would maybe stop for lunch may be discovering new cafe where they had a really great cup of coffee and instead she said that all the do now is basically sit it or lay in bed with their phones and take off the boxes by ordering things that they might need and they don't do that kind dove lisi meandering wandering around the neighborhood where they <hes> actually meet people face to face and have a conversation sation. She just finds that her saturdays in her sundays are way more dull and they're not as fulfiling how do we we start to convince ourselves to do these things. You mentioned that there. Someone's gotta start a mini revolution about reclaiming the pleasure in everyday activities activities. Where does that begin. I think i think really if you look around. You're already see it beginning <hes> the artisan community <hes> when it comes to food food farm-to-table cuisine. There's a big push. There's a lot of people that are actually really making an effort now to <hes> get to local the markets and do that kind of shopping support the local <hes> farmers. There's there's a there's a growing swell swell of individuals who care about the people that actually put in time sweat tears into making products or produce or whatever it is that they are giving to us. They're taking the time to say okay. I'm gonna make an effort to come to you and those kinds of businesses are actually flourishing. <hes> this one lady after i wrote the p. she she sent me an email and it was really thoughtful and she said the one thing that you didn't think about was how how all of these click bait options. I e anything you can click on to get delivered to you immediately. She said they're destroying. Small towns sounds all the tiny retailers mom and pop shops that you stu subsist because of people being loyal to them coming to them. They're starting to disappear now. It's not just because of convenience per se. It's also because of big box retailers ars but that's an earlier form of convenience. You know with the big box. Go there do everything all in one swoop. That was just another incarnation nation of the you know the rollout of convenience that has been chugging along for the last hundred years that god knows what level it will get to with with technology. Do we have any idea how quickly the click an order and get it off. The internet economy is growing well well. I think if you consider just the <hes> amount of purchases that are done on the web so in the worldwide for instance stints almost two point nine trillion dollars was purchased last year in canada alone were expected double what we did in two thousand sixteen and by this year will have spend forty billion dollars online so is growing exponentially and with services like amazon ebay. All of those different ones will even them more conventional couriers like u._p._s. and fedex etcetera. They're all trying to find a way to go to zero emissions and make things a little bit more environmental friendly in my piece. I didn't wanna hammer on about the environmental impact talked. All the easy choices were making but there's absolutely no question that everything that we're doing when we're relying more on airplanes since on vans to bring us things. All these things are taking a toll on the environment just this morning. I was reading the paper and there's a new book out by tatiana schlossberg. That's caroline kennedy's a daughter who's was a science reporter for the new york times and she's just written a book about <hes> this very phenomenon and she calls the inconspicuous consumption and it's about the environmental impact that you don't know oh you have and i have not read it but i'm going to and it what makes me happy. What makes me feel better is that all of these things are starting to be written. People are starting to think about all of this stuff in a much more concerted and wholesome way. I guess who do you you think or where do you think i guess we first documented how far we'd come in the race for convenience and how much could cost us. When did we start to realize just how far we were going. I don't think we've realized that yet <hes>. I don't think that most people even even give it. A second thought. I was shocked at the response at the story. I wrote about convenience had what was it was overwhelming. It was bizarre really really because it was a topic that nobody has thought about that said there are some there are people who are far more learned learning than i am who are starting to write <hes> fascinating essays in places like the new york times and the atlantic all these publications that are starting according to examine the tyranny of convenience and how we need to start thinking about the choices we make instead of always opting for something that is almost a mindless thing to do. We should maybe start making our lives a little bit more difficult and by that i mean maybe we should not order from ubereats and maybe we should actually walk two blocks and go to the grocery store and maybe we should take an hour and make a meal for our family while maybe they stand around and actually talk to you and you have a conversation with your child about her day her homework. I'm sure you do that anyway. But wouldn't it be nice if she just kind of hung out with you while you showed her how to make a dish that otherwise she she would never know how to make because you just ordered in one of the things that stopped me and my tracks from your piece the same way you've gotten that response is i think we've talked about all the individual aspects of what you describe on this podcast. We've certainly talked about social media addiction and what it does to us. We've definitely talked about packaging waste and what the the proliferation of plastics have done to the planet and we've talked about how we don't connect in person anymore like we've done episodes on all those topics but we've never put it together to to figure out what's at the root of it and to realize that your motivations for doing all those things that aren't good for you are simply convenience and laziness. This is a tough thing to grapple with and i think it's it's a hard sell to convince people to go backwards. That's a really good point. I don't think it anybody is advocating to go backwards. I don't think that's it at all. I think it is instead of moving forward at at such. A breakneck speed always putting yourself. I always making sure that you're choosing to do things that require the least amount of energy and effort on your part. I think that all people are trying to say is every once in a while. Put the brakes on. Take takes some time. Grab a hobby this wonderful <hes> writer. His name is tim wu. He's a lawyer columbia. He said when you think about it. Hobbies are really a waste of time. Why would you build a model car when you can go out and buy one well the point is you to build the model car because you get satisfaction of using your brain and actually figuring out how to put it together. You me an example of something you've done. Since you wrote this piece that you wouldn't have done before you wrote it. Well one thing i am doing but i didn't do it today to get here because i always under hurry and after go somewhere after her work but i have been i live at <hes> a busy intersection in toronto and i have been walking to the rom role winter you museum picking up one of the city bikes biking it on one of the multiple blake bike lanes that are in this city now and doing doing it to work and coming home the same way that's one thing i did not do before the other thing that i am actively doing is. I am looking for the farmers markets. I am trying to find those smaller. <hes> vendors who need my dollars versus a lob laws or a whole foods are so eas who really doesn't isn't. I'm trying to do those kind of things and the other thing that i i am actively doing now is i'm trying to grow my own vegetables. I live in a condo. I have started a vegetable garden on the balcony and i get so much the joy out of going out there and watching you know the tomato start to grow <hes>. I guess the main thing i've done is i've just kind slowed down a bit and just done some few more things. You'll fashioned way exco gail mcdonald feature writer at the globe globe in mail.
Fires in Brazil's Amazon blamed on deforestation
"There's anger and dismay around the world about what's happening in the amazon right now. Tens of thousands of fires are burning in the rainforest dramatically more than last year environmentalists. I say many of these are caused by cattle ranchers and loggers clearing forest land. They blame brazil's president for encouraging them. N._p._r.'s philip brees has just returned from a trip to the amazon and i can you just give us a sense of scale. How serious is the situation. I know it's a cliche but the amazon rainforest really is the lungs of the world stores vast amounts of carbon. That's really crucial for slowing climate change. There are tens of thousands of fires in the forest every year but this year the number is far higher. Let me give you some of the figures according to brazil's institute of space that being more than seventy four thousand dollars this year and that's up more in eighty percent on last year and a lot of these are in the amazon the have been spikes before in two thousand and five for example but back then there was a drought and and environmentalists and climate change experts saying there's no drought this year and there are no doubt the people causing most of these in order to clear land often for cattle and they say that they have the data to prove it. When you visited the rainforest. How close were you able to get to see evidence of these fires always in the west of brazil in the state of actually which is mostly actually covered by rainforest and i drove into the forest and started to see smoke pretty early on and eventually came across a fire. There's actually burning there so i turned on my taper cola woah this area of land here well inside the amazon rainforest is burning. I can see charred tree stumps all around me smoke rising not just about this particular part of the fire but of over in the distance old around. I could see the forest but i could also see a large area. Maybe ten twelve football fields that has been unburned now. That's just one fire if you think that there are many thousands of these sense of the scale of this a scale so great that according to the world meteorological organization tation smoke from amazon fis is actually reaching the atlantic coast and also brazil's biggest city sao paulo way to the south of the amazon. Why are environmentalists blaming aiming brazil's president for this jabu scenario. The president argues that his government can exploit the amazon's mineral and agricultural wealth and preserve the forest but if you look at what he's actually done since taking office in january. It doesn't seem to have much to do with preservation. He's weakened government environmental enforcement osman agencies. He's alienated too key foreign sources of money for preservation projects norway and germany. He's also scoffed at satellite data compiled compiled by the government's monitoring agency and a lot of people say that by doing this does not always encouraging illegal loggers cattle ranches to cause more destruction of the kind. We're seeing now. Listen to the amer hamas. Who's from the socio environmental institute here in brazil. I think that it shows to people that the government's not interested stood in enforcing the legislation and strengthening all the strategies to combat deforestation like green sign for people to go into the ground rounding to the forest without any kind of control because they know that the president afterwards will say well that didn't happen. You know how is wilson are reacting getting to these kinds of accusations well. He's tried to counter-attack by suggesting without offering any evidence that non-governmental organizations are deliberately setting fires lies in the forest to make him look bad boston tried to row back from that remarks somewhat today by posting online video accusing the media of irresponsibly hyping those remarks but the allegations still out there and it's causing a lot of astonishment also outrage. There is generally a lot of anger here about what's happening in the rainforest brazil's environment minister at a taste of that during a u._n. Climate change meeting here in brazil this week where he was heckled and booed and in the coming days protests are planned around brazil to highlight the crisis in amazon. That's n._p._r.'s philip reeve's in rio de janeiro philip thank you you're welcome.

K. ambassador to Somalia band fender treated this he said to a good bye to him he said to add to the public seventy he said kind and gentle colleague friend he said you have been called away much too soon our hearts are so heavy today we woke join hands to continue the work you started than Somalia we will bill Somalia in the in in your memory and you know what what sort of impact to tell me did he make in Somalia well I mean that those tributes have been have been coming from far and wide I mean we see even the response from a lot of the the as you mentioned the international partners but you know particularly in Somalia you know he was known locally as engineer yeah I was sold which translates as a young engineer just relating to you know goes with the kind of the work he had tried to do and and just making Mogadishu a better place fixing infrastructure and and a lot of reconstruction work but he also you know spoke boldly against al Shabab and and you know was not afraid to to take on them but but he was also a man known locally in terms of politics and and how he wanted to justice for all you know to be dealt with a lot of people who he believed locally had been fueling in security so this is a man who was out spoken but at the same time somebody who seemed very accessible to everybody seems to have a story about him yeah an al Shabaab was chased out of Mogadishu right in twenty twelve so war what state is that the group in in terms of fits presence in some money at the moment well I mean which we've talked about this many times on the on the program I don't think much has changed in terms of the two sides you know the the Somali government is still trying is still getting the support from its international partners but at the say you know to to fight aus about but at the same time also Bob still maintains this presence almost like an ever present form in the flesh of the the the Somali government and its people and it continues to target government that seems to be its main it's it you know its mane HM yeah it wants to be a government in Somalia we so even in the statement that it made about this particular attack it also like to play up its own achievement so it said he was trying to target the U. N. envoy in we have no proof that they were able to successfully follow him I think this is pop possibly a part of that propaganda to make it look as if they dare a more powerful and instill fear in among the peoples that's what else about his doing but it's also going to new frontiers for example two weeks ago or there about we saw the attacking Kismayo when they hadn't attacked in years so this group is still powerful still a major threat in Somalia okay the BBC's tell me a lot of thank you very much for

Movie remakes: the good, the bad and the ugly
"We look at remakes the good the bad, the ugly possibly some other surprises. Here is co host and actor Doug Hutchison, Doug, how's it going today? How are you, my friend? All right there. I'm good. I'm ready. I'm poised, I'm doing really, well, thanks for asking. And I'm excited about this topic movie remakes, I believe it was inspired, if I'm correct me if I'm wrong. But and our last show, we were talking our theme was movies about loss and grief surrender and one of my on the list was movie called pet cemetery based on the Stephen King novel, and I really enjoyed the rigid version, and then found out, they were making twenty nineteen version, which just came out, which I. Haven't seen, but I started lamenting about remakes and questioning the validity of remaking movies that are already made, you know, impeccably, so why remake them. So I think that spurred this topic on, but I just wanted to preface it this by saying that we call this remakes the good the bad and the ugly. But in my research, I actually surprised myself because I found that I actually started liking a lot of the remakes that was digging up the ones that I had seen. And so my list actually has more smiley Osman Ali faces on it. So I guess my list my list is not the good the bad nucleus that the good. I one ugly, just a mention at the very end just for the heck. But anyway, I was wrong. I just gotta say that. I'm gonna confess it. I was wrong. I think there is validity in making certain remakes and I have enjoyed as you'll see a handful of them. Many of us in smiley face by them. And I'm gonna tell you mine are just the opposite might have a frown. After after off your conversation. Holly told you I was looking at the positive and the bright side of everything. I'm gonna try and five five down. So. Great minor five thumbs up years or five down mice, the glasses have full years. At the half full once you're five. Okay, so in, in no sense of order whatsoever, by the way of priority. One of the remakes, actually really enjoyed is Tim Burton's Alice wonderland twenty ten. The original versions, of course, there, were it was nineteen fifty one there was a version of wonderland. And then there was a TV movie version in nineteen eighty five Tim Burton cast as the often does that amazing cast Johnny Depp. He's always cast in depth. So debt plays the mad Hatter Tim Burton's wife, who I've heard they possibly getting divorced. I think I read this the other day which is unfortunate, but it's life and relationship I suppose. Helena, Bonham Carter? It plays the Queen of hearts, young actress by the name of mea was the cow seat in Australian actress plays Alice Crispin Glover plays the knave of hearts. And I can say is in a nutshell Tim Burton. I mean. Filmmaking God or what move? He's actually come down from the mount filmmaking Olympics to give us his gifts or he's made a pact with the devil, because everything this man touches to me turns into gold and his vision, his, his special effects, his whole take on his movies are just unbelievably original income Pele. I loved him Burton as you do. And so Alison wonderland twenty ten Tim Burton's version. I loved it Coleman who call. I'm going to do research on the internet. I'm see anywhere. You came from a good place for that. It's great for me. Number five linking. Said, good things, these are not in order, because this might have been number one for me, the Halloween remakes, specifically by rob zombie. Who's the singer slash director? People that absolutely are in love with his movies. I find him to be one of the I hate shitting by hate it. It's not my style. Rob zombies, Halloween movies are among some of the worst I've ever seen, but not just Halloween. He directed. Oh shit. What are those movies he directed? All other coal classics God. How come I mean? Blinded, I loved that he made it wasn't a remake, but devils reach, I'm not gonna want a lot of people like that movie I do not. I, I don't like rob zombie style. He, he was on Howard Stern bragging on how quickly he shoots movies and I'm gonna know shit. It shows like it's like. Yeah, this looks like something you shot overnight, like it's I should be more friendly towards Massachusetts. Born director. I dunno house thousand corpses. Grind house at devil's rejects. I, I am not a fan of especially the Halloween. It's just he's not as cute as thinks he's on his creative as he thinks he is the movies, look like even shop quickly. There's there. I just find him highly unappealing I to tell you, I've had two interviews, one with another podcast host. Absolutely loved them. Shame on you for saying that. And then I had on the director of directed. I'm not gonna mention what he directed, but he dragged my favorite horror movies, and I said, I'm going to tell you I love this. I compare this something like rob zombie Halloween. I said, I'm not really a fan. He goes robs a friend. I'm like, oh, sorry. Okay. I should have said that. But I'm just I'm just not fan of rob zombie Halloween. And that doesn't even case into account. How awesome the original Halloween movies are even the last one they came out this past year with with. What's your name plays the lead in the Halloween movie stuck? My brain is out to lunch today. Gene, Jamie Curtis. Jamie Lee Curtis. Again, of course. Rijo. Yeah. And that was directed by the latest one when she was in. It wasn't directed by her. It was okay. But completely unnecessary leave the ones that came out the originals alone, their final even the one two three I love them. But yeah, that's how I lick never been touched again. And you and I have talked about the Halloween mask ironically whose face that is. And I hope I hope you believe me now it's face. I did not do any research because I think maybe just slipped yourself a little bit of acid or I don't know some kind of drug or something because that's crazy. I do not I because if I think about that, and I watched Halloween again, what my going to be
Unsung Economists: Sadie Alexander
"In nineteen twenty one. But because of a race nobody would hire her as an economist. So a few years later, she got her LA degree and went on to have a lustrous career as a civil rights lawyer Bucknell university professor Nina banks has been researching the career in life of Sadie Alexander for almost two decades. And she's working on a pair of books about Sadie Alexander. But economists have not been really focused on her work because of the I think the the belief that when she wasn't able to practice economics that she really stopped focusing much on ecconomic issues, but I really found that that wasn't the case that for forty years, at least she was giving speeches around the country and all of those speeches dealt with issues that that dealt with the status of African Americans. So we don't have recordings of those speeches. But we do have the transcripts and in those speeches Sadie Alexander had fascinating things to say not just about issues that were relevant during her time. But about issues that still matter now, this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith. I'm caught of Garcia today on the show.

Businesses were letting workers go the year before that speech. President Franklin D Roosevelt had given a famous speech of his own in which the president had argued for a second Bill of rights and one of those rights would be the right to employment for anyone who is willing and able to get a job. In other words that the economy should propential- be at full employment where anyone who wants to work can find work. This would alleviate the economic insecurity of those marginal workers constantly wondering if they were about to be unemployed. Now, it was already understood at the time that win the economy is at full employment workers get paid more. Because when everyone who wants a job can get one then companies have to compete with each other to attract and hire workers and also to keep their own workers from leaving them for another job and the companies compete with each other by offering better wages and working conditions to workers city Alexander's early. Distinct contribution economics was her argument that full employment was also absolutely necessary. For achieving racial equality. So Sadie Alexander believed that having a fully employed labor force would increase workers pay and they're purchasing power. But of course, this could not occur. If whites continued to exclude black workers from having the right to work, so Sadie Alexander said that full employment was quote, the only solution to the economic subjugation of the negro and of the great masses of white labor. Obviously Sadie Alexander was speaking during a time in which segregation was both legally and informally embedded across American society, American institutions, and that segregation extended to the labor market in which many white workers viewed block workers as rivals as competitors for jobs. CD Alexander made the argument that in order to get rid of economic, insecurity, the whole working class people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds were in it together that they would all benefit from an economy at full employment, and that full employment could not be defined as just. Full employment for white workers. It had to include everyone because let's say that white workers were full employment. But black workers were not then not only with the black workers experienced the hardships of unemployment, but also white workers might continue to see unemployed black workers as threat to their jobs. So if everyone who wanted a job had a job there might be less suspicion between workers of different races, which would make it more likely that the white working class and the black working class would work together to bargain for better, wages and working conditions. Another part of CD Alexander's argument win the economy is not at full employment and therefore businesses don't have to pay higher wages than the owners of businesses can keep more of the profits for themselves at least in the short term. But need a Bank says Sadie Alexandra argued that this eventually leads to rising inequality and will become a big problem for the whole economy because if you exclude a big class of workers from having jobs, it means there are fewer people earning the money to buy the goods that were made by those businesses in the first place. Which again eventually could lead to an economic downturn. But you could prevent that outcome by increasing the earnings power of all workers. And again, that's what happens when the economy is at full employment. And then finally Sadie Alexander argued that full employment would free people from material want from deprivation or starvation or from a lack of basic needs. And so they would then also be free to pursue higher goals to realize their potential professionally and personally, and that would make it less likely that workers would become disillusioned with the government itself or with democracy, and like president Roosevelt Sadie Alexander feared that economic insecurity would result in quote, men and women who have lost hope demanding a dictator to take over the reins of government Sadie. Alexander was not a socialist. She believed in regulated capitalism says Nida banks, but she did also believe that the government had an active role to play in a cheerful employment for the economy when the private sector couldn't do that by itself. She. Envisioned a public work programme that addressed pressing needs that would enhance people's well-being she focused on improving housing conditions in urban slums or providing electricity to every form she talked about reducing illiteracy, reducing hunger and making sure that people were properly clothed. That's typically not what we think about today when we focus on public works as part of this goal of cheating full employment for the economy Sadie. Alexander also argued that the government should guarantee a job to people who would want one and professor banks believes that Sadie Alexander might even have been the first economist to make that case. In fact, a national jobs guarantee is a policy idea that is being hotly debated right now something else that communists are debating right now is the question of whether the economy is in fact at full employment, and there is obviously no way to know for sure how Sadie Alexander would answer that question. But here's what we can say the labor market has improved. A lot in recent years and the unemployment rate for black or African Americans has mostly been falling during that time. But at six point eight percent, it is almost twice as high as the unemployment rate for white Americans, which is only three point five percent. And according to the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank, a black worker with the same education as a white worker is only getting paid roughly eighty percent as much as the white worker, and that applies at every educational level, and that wage gap is bigger now than it was back in the year two thousand it. Of course, it isn't just in the economy where there still exist big racial disparities. Another place is in the very disciplined that Sadie Alexander tried to enter nearly a hundred years ago economics to see this. You just have to look at the numbers numbers that Anna Gifty Poku Osman senior at the university of Maryland knows really well, so basically in between two fifteen to sixteen five out of one thousand one hundred and fifty eight doctoral degrees and economics where worth of black women. So that's. Less than half of one percent. One half of one percent. The numbers for black men. Earning PHD's and for black undergraduate economics degrees are only slightly better. But in is trying to do something about this. She co founded the CD collective in organization that wants to create a better environment for black women to go into economics and this weekend. The Sadie collective is hosting the inaugural Sadie TM Alexander conference for economics. Anna says that it just felt natural to Namie organization and the conference after Sadie Alexander, we she was very interested in economic equality in advocating for marginalized groups is so we felt that that was in line with our overall mission sort of equalizing the playing field by giving black women the same opportunities that we've been seeing other people received in the field the conference is sold out which along with the papers and the upcoming books from Nina banks suggests that the legacy work and speeches of Sadie Alexander which had been forgotten for so long. 'economics might soon. Find a new and growing audience. This episode of the indicator was produced by Constanza yard, oh, edited by
"osman" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"The ass, man. I was gonna mistakes. What's your name again macrame? Cosmo Kramer, you are the ass, man. Not. So in this case, this is this guy is the Asmi or the Osman if you will. And the government said, no, we're not going to give you that vanity plate. So what he did? Instead was he put a giant decal on the back of his truck. It's fans the entire trucks tailgate the decal styled after after a license plate. So it kind of looks like a giant license plate on his tailgate and in giant letters. It says Asman I'm sorry Osman did his stock. Just go up with you. Or did it go down? I think it's really funny. I think maybe now it definitely looks like he's not just celebrating his name. Now, it looks way worse than if it had just been on his license plate because if it's on the plate, then it's accepted if it's big painted on the truck. Yeah. Now. Now, you're making a statement. Yes. And if you're one that has one of the kids in the car. Hey, dad, why does that say ass, man? I don't know. Now, the government is taking this in stride. They just said all's well that ends well, you can do what you want with your truck. We can't stop you from that. Right. We just didn't want to approve a license plate that said this all my cash something else. You gotta get to jussie smollet did know who he was few weeks ago. And now this has become a big story because he was allegedly attacked Kogyo for being gay and black. But they haven't found any evidence as far as video evidence. But he's saying it's true.

"osman" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Newsradio sixteen this Canadian guy wants to get a personalized license plate with his name on it. So what's the problem? Well, Dave Osman doesn't really see a problem except Dave Osman's. Last name is spelled A S S M A N. Mr. Osman who proudly pronounces his name as Osman has been prohibited from putting his name on a license plate. He says it's my last name. I've always had it. I'm not ashamed of it. There's nothing about about it for Osman his name carries. A proud legacy has great grandfather an Osman himself would help farmers during hard times he would loan the money would not foreclose on their ranches. According to government officials, though a license plate featuring the name could offend others. Even if a word is someone as name and pronounced differently than the offensive version. That's not something that would be apparent to other motorists who will see the plate. And immediately you guys know what I thought of. Well, if you haven't listened to the show that long, you might not or if you didn't watch Seinfeld, you might not. But if you've listened to show any watch Seinfeld, you know, exactly where I'm going with this. This is straight out of a Seinfeld episode Kramer goes to get his plate. And it was well personalized editor had the name Osman on it. Spelled A S S A N and the entire episode is people honking, Adam as he drives by with his Osman license plate, and then at the end of it because Jerry sits on few Sealy, Jerry or did George, Jerry. I can't remember he ended up having to go see a doctor, a proctology whose name was Osman. And I'm saying Osman just because I think I would get in trouble. If I actually said the other way. This is straight out of it. Like our in a way, how cool would that be to be able to say, I'm living a Seinfeld episode? I don't know why that appeals to me so much. I feel like I would feel like I was a lot cooler if that happened, you know, somehow, I'd be the hip or than I was before if I was living assigned feld episode, although I have had, you know, have you ever thought of getting a personalized license plate. And if so did you think of different possibilities? I think when I was younger. I did. Oh, I remember. Here's this is how kids think this is how little Mandy used to think when I was about ten or eleven years old. So this is one thousand nine hundred seventy nine hundred eighty one thousand nine hundred seventy seven nine thousand in that range of the late seventies early eighties. A friend of mine's mom got an M G. And my name starts with a G. And I wanted a personal. I wanted an MG. And then I wanted a personalized license plate that just said M M G thought that was funny. And my father's like, I'm not buying you an MG. They're stupid cars break down all the time. And then I wanted to kharman Ghia and my dad's like again stupid cars break down all the time. So so I got a chevette instead good moved add well done. Well done. Couldn't think of something for a chevette now. No, no, every chevette comes from the factory with these south.

An opt-out organ donor system might actually lead to fewer transplants
"Right now let's talk about a another. Very important story donation as we reported earlier the other day they plan from the government. Is t- by twenty twenty make organ donation automatic Basically you have to opt out instead of opting in as millions of us have done you. Have to, choose, to opt out on a registered. Registered you don't want to donate your organs off death and that would mean that would be more dog organs, available for those who are desperately in need we know that people die every, single day for lack of a. Donated organ however a new. Study suggests that the opt-out register is, unlikely to increase the number of organisms at your ever. Donated and could even lead to feel organ donations. But why well as Dr Mukta Osborne who's lead author of the report from Queen Mary university good morning to you Hello Hello now it. Would seem to be rather obvious logic to the more people. Who say that it organs are available so by. Default after their deaths for a transplant it was suggested there will be Morgan's available Morgan transplants would. Take place that's got to be a good thing why does your study what. Is, it what they could be even fewer say what we did in our study was we presented people with a fictional story which basically says he's a tragic. Event that's? Happened, and all we need to know is the person that hit experienced this is on the register today And what we've ERI was whether the denomination. Systems that they were on with I say. The explicitly indicate that you. Want to do yoga NHS or the presumed consent she's what you just described And what we were we included, a couple of others so the keys difference was went off okay. So now the person is registered that walk ins how strong and indicate that is, this all steroid underlying wishes night, what we find is that people judge that if you're on, all, the nation system which. You explicitly indicated you want Stop a much stronger signal, as to you wanting to die Then I presumed consent were an opt out system Well I can understand that that means people yeah people are clear about it and yet Could we not, bypass this, by not having conversations, with family members about these things and and and saying you know unless someone is finally unless, there's someone has, bothered to sign up onto this register will have Elizabeth bliss about it? Then, I'm sorry but there. Is available or. Does, that just get into very difficult situations Crying family doctors wheeling a patient down the hallway to, the surgical theater, which would just be untenable for families and indeed did hospital staff together Say just unpacked, is I think. The key message here is communication is is incredibly cool so I, think this is highlighted in the first of what you're saying which is System Asian gain to help into bypassing sort of what is needed which is a lot more communication with family, members, to say look. Under circumstances where something terrible happens this is really what I want. Because that removes the claim which was as a as the out out, sister say There's. More things that need to be addressed around this organ donation issues than just whether? You, all uptown so there's more that needs to be done but certainly, one of the keys to make sure that people communicating with, each other about what the actual true. Wishes all should something happen is that Dyson family actually to make sort of a monumental decision as this kind yeah I mean it's a very difficult one it seems to me, to be such a no brainer was someone living in my organs all family, members organs, should be available to someone who needs the more than my my me dead, already the family member daddy seems to be. Such a no brainer that I'm amazed that these things, are still issues but we know that they offer. A lot of people really interesting study Dr MAC to Osman thank you very, much daily dose of that, report
