All About the Thylacine
"The thylacine one only two marsupials known to have a pouch for both sexes. The other species which is still with us is the water possum. From central and south america the pouch of the mail file seen served as a protective sheath for their genitals making them sort of internal external genitals roughly two thousand years ago the pouched predator behind to disappear from papua new guinea and australia perhaps due to competition from the dingo the dingo is considered to be the first introduced species sienna though. No one's quite sure who introduce them. Among the front runners are indian mariners. Who may have traveled to australia. The seafaring lupita people who spread eastward into the pacific from east asia or traders from t- more and taiwan who sailed through southeast asia. The dingo began out competing. The thylacine centuries before european settlement at which point there were around five thousand of them left. Things got markedly worse for the tigers. In tasmania after sheep were introduced in eighteen twenty four. The european settlers took a dim view to native animals eating the livestock. They'd introduced into the predators environment within a few years cash. Bounties were offered to encourage people to hunt them despite contemporary evidence that stray dogs and poor ranch management were killing most of the sheep. Nope gotta be these animals. We didn't ask for to the bounty hunting. The combo punch of extensive habitat destruction and invasive diseases like mange and the population diminished rapidly. The last living thylacine was captured in the wild in nineteen thirty three before being taken to the bowmer assu also known as the hobart zoo the remains of which you can skulk through today if you're into urban exploring and don't mind the risk of being arrested for trespassing

"Sometimes we just forget where we put things. That's what happened in this case. The ship didn't mysteriously disappeared in the bermuda triangle it had been diverted to papua new guinea. The ship was fine. Somebody just forgot to update the paperwork so no one knew. Oh yeah. I know boring end to the story but the epilogue is better. The sisters crisis not only went on to write a best selling book about the disappearing object phenomenon that funded our operation for decades to come but we started a seal program. You mean like navy seals. no not that. We had such success with our penguin program and artika that we began working with sales. We train them to be very much like bloodhounds. But in the water it turns out that a well trained seal can track the scent of missing ship for thousands of nautical miles. Seems they'll do just about anything for a few herrings and look at this. We didn't lose any socks in the laundry. Perhaps it's a compensating shift in the cosmos. You find your socks but lose your journal.

"Low Hallo photography lovers. How's it going today? I have another fascinating conversation for you. I talked to a British travel and landscape photographer today. Coal Trevor Publishes Images in magazines calendars and carts in the December. Two thousand eleven he presented to the Royal Geographic. Society has also exhibited in Ziada in Switzerland Ireland. He reached the final of the travel photographer of the year. In Two thousand ten eleven thirteen and fifteen and was also a finalist in the wanderlust magazine travel photographer of the year in two thousand thirteen without any further. Ado here is my conversation with Trevor Call. Hello Trevor I'm so happy to have you today. How doing very well. Thank you very nice to meet you to lash the first question. I often asked. My guess is very simple. How do you stay inspired? What's the number one thing that makes you go out there and photograph as a really good question for many years of my life? I told Jugular Vein International schools overseas so for me. Photography was always a part of that so all night photography established from geography and travel. So whenever you see things you have new eyes of men therefore the photography becomes much more meaningful so I guess. Travel is my main stimulus. Okay so and you are traveling all over the world. I have seen so many amazing images in your portfolio of people and landscape of different cultures and of of those people in their environment. So what is it that fascinates about those those people? Are there any answers you are trying to get you know to your photography when when photographing them? I've always had an interest in indigenous able those that have beaten in situ on the spot for a very long period of time I e the tribes of southwest Ethiopia and. I've just come back from a trip to Papua New Guinea. Where I went to the highland. Show it on. I guess it's the way they live. And the way they still connect to nature something that's been lost largely in our more developed world. It just fascinates me hobbies cultures. They're very similar in many ways and yet they're very different but the way they interact with the the earth sky above the elements and manage to look after the environment. And there's always been a little bit of the environmentalist in me jumper. I lived in West Africa for a year teaching and I live for four years in Ethiopia. So I'm particularly familiar with southern eighth yoga so I try to return there and take little voters there Once the air or once every eighteen months I real soft spot for Ethiopia in particular but also photographed different look different locations or all around to drive yesterday of an. I love together Namibia. I also love landscapes I mean. That's the other part of my geography really is just beings have more which so incredibly beautiful and Iceland or where I live here. My own country of Ireland is stunningly. Beautiful the perfect perfect place for tigers to capture light and landscape. Let's talk about landscape a little bit more later on on on the show here. Let's get back to people because it's really fascinating for me especially that travel to visit those different locations. Instead of one thing you would say that kind of stays the same when it comes to people standing in front of your camera like do you experience similar emotions or reactions when when photographing them. Actually actually no. I mean in in for example. I've only been to Papua New Guinea Than it's fresh in my mind the people are just loved. Having their photograph taken that were very receptive but some other parts of the world. I've traveled to Somaliland on travel to eastern Ethiopia. Where cultural differences make it a lot more difficult to take photographs a lot more challenging due to other religious belief or a certain shyness towards being photographed so sometimes sometimes you have to look not more I really think is important. Is Spending time with people not just going in taking your shot leaving. You have to know people you have to feel something on even those. That are difficult to photograph culturally. If you spend time with him you know you often get that little chance that maybe others don't get shots than becomes a possibility but this this first step of knowing those people better is is not a barrier which is also very difficult to cross. You have to kind of enter private sphere of someone or maybe a family. How do you start such process with people from different cultures different languages and so on while I always take a local guide? I always use local Enterprise people who know the people and that is my way it take find a good guide opens doors that otherwise you would find closed in your face some places. You just cannot go alone you wouldn't you wouldn't get up. She wants to get so someone who could translate to sit Iran with you and you can ask questions using their skills as an interpreter and that makes a lot of different so that first step becomes easier.
Voice and Wearables with Dave Kemp of Future Ear
"Also have a blog. That has now Formed into a podcast as well future ear. My podcast is the the future ear radio PODCASTS. And really what I'm trying to do is cover the intersection of Curable technology stemming from my background in hearing AIDS which are like The preeminent curable And Voice Technology. So I I you know I do too podcast week where I bring on people from the world of audiology the world of the world of voice technology and sort of just have this guy. Tried to create a cohesive narrative around this budding intersection. That I just find to be absolutely fascinating. That's amazing end I've listened to your podcast and it's fantastic. I think you're a great interviewer actually have said that you before. So I think thank you. Questions are really great and And you're in your prolific content producer as well now because you're doing it twice. That's I know that takes that takes a lot of a lot of consistency effort. So good for you. Let's talk a little bit about the intersection here of here. Both in voice technology. We'll get into the exciting news that we have the book in just a moment but I love to get your take on. How did you first see that interaction with voice technology? And what's the what's the origin? Story there sure So the very first time I like started coming around the voice technology You know like world was the the Alexa Conference back when it was called the Alexa conference very proud that I can say that I was one of the Og Alexa Conference people back when it was in Chattanooga Public Library It's so funny. It's like when we were at project voice this year which which has been reprinted in to see many familiar faces. And it's just so cool to think back on this small group inside the Public Library and it just keeps growing and growing and growing and The reason I was there was because I started to really research What was going to happen Due to the fact that hearing aids were all becoming Bluetooth enabled so back around. Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen there this massive shift In terms of the type of hearing aids that were coming to market Everything was Bluetooth enabled and because of that I started thinking. Well this is a really big deal because then you basically unlocked the whole smartphone economy the economy and all that but I kept thinking. What else are you gonna be able to do with this and Like so many people you know I always find it interesting like who was the person that really got you interested in this and a lot of people would say Gary Banner Chuck for me. It was Brian Romilly. I came across him on twitter. I just Kinda got into a rabbit hole. Read his stuff and I was like. This is a really really interesting premise. In the way that I thought about it was okay. So if this You know the way that he describes it as the sort of paradigm shift into the way in which we interact with technology. Every you know ten to twelve years you have sort of this new interface that emerges And this idea of voice made a lot of sense to me because you know it's this idea of simplifying everything back to the basics and being able to have a four year olds communicate with this type of technology or ninety five girls and that to me was like the Big Aha moment so what I started think was okay. Well if this is going to be a thing in smart speakers continued to proliferate and people continue to increasingly depend on them for more and more things I thought that what would it be likely that they would then want that type of functionality on their person and so I said well. What better of a home Then these new Bluetooth connected hearing AIDS that you're wearing all day every day Not to mention sort of the consumer side that was just starting to take shape largely being ushered in by air products. And so. That's how I got into this whole thing was just this notion in this idea that I thought it was entirely possible that the evolution of The way in which we interact with our smartphones would be unbundled to the more like peripheral Peripheral wearable devices In having voice as you know not only the user interface also the voice assistant serving as the actual operating system. Yeah that's great and and it's clear You know hearing you speak in following your work that you're now one of the leaders in this area of technology and here ables and it's such a historic. It just makes sense to me. You know an intuitively that with with speaking. There's listening as well and part of the part of the oral type of communication so I think that's really exciting because of that You know it's. It's really wonderful that we've had the opportunity to work together on this special project on the voice technology in Healthcare Book and You are one of the chapter authors. And I'd love for you to share with us a little bit about The process and of course you know little bit of information in terms of what did you write about. What did you learn out of it and your your thoughts on on that whole that whole deal? Yeah for sure and first of all I wanNA thank. You WanNa thank the whole group Harry Papua's and David Metcalfe and everybody else I. This is just an amazing opportunity in so regarding the process. What's interesting is at the time when you approach me about this. I had been writing what I called the daily updates so I was midway through. I'd probably written about seventy five eighty of these so I had actually got into the habit of writing daily and I think that it was good timing because I was like I felt as if I was kind of honing his craft of writing and being pretty religious about it. And so when you presented me with this idea of like can you write a ten thousand word chapter on You? Know Kinda like everything that you're passionate about wearables. Voice Technology in the Medical Setting. Rice said that sounds like a challenge. In so I'll be perfectly honest. I had a good idea in my head of of the outline. I sent you the outline but when push came to shove Like so many other people you know something. That's kind of daunting like that. I kind of procrastinated and when I finally did is one day. I can't remember. I think it was like a Sunday. I just like went into my room. Close my door in a got into like this Into this almost like trans. Yeah exactly and I just cranked it out. I actually wrote it in one day while I obviously edited it afterwards but I remember I would. I was writing And I told my girlfriend that I was going to be doing this. I was like I'M GONNA go. I'm GONNA just knock out ten thousand words and we'll see if I can do this. I think I can do it. I read about a thousand words every day. So it's just like basically writing ten types of articles that are right but I gotta do it and so I did it and I just went in there and I was texting updates from like six thousand seven thousand so it was. It was actually pretty a pretty cool process and it was a pretty cool thing for me to like. Be Able to tell myself like you can do this So as a writer because I have journalism background. This was one of the this was like for me. Like if I was a mountain climber like this was the highest peak that I've climbed yet so I really appreciate the opportunity of even getting the chance to do this and the challenge of Of doing it and So that was sort of the process of of how I how this thing came to life and then after I wrote it I went back through. I mean there was it was kind of messy so I had a really clean it up in. You know rearrange it a little bit but But that's how I

Just be a straight up believer in all this but now I question it and I usually still come up to be a believer. I take time to think about it. And that is that makes me proud me too me too. Yeah all right so. This is one of our top listeners. Whitney top listeners. She is our top is awesome. She is awesome and she's always posting and got a lot of fun stuff So she says Pat You will probably have a field day with this my friend and roommate by the way she did get permission from the room. That's it took us a few weeks before we read this Who her roommate goes by the name of Rabbit Rabbit has been an actual rabbit or is it no named rap person named nicknamed rabbit okay. I'm fine with that. All right has been seeing and hearing things his entire life. He has many stories but one in particular still ongoing from when he was a child. He believes that he's being plagued by Mitch mischievous spirit that he is named Bob. Oh I am too. Yeah by Bob Anderson from Bob after dark spirit that just plagues you keep putting these micro-climate ideas in my head. Yeah Over the years Bob is made his presence known to all of us. Rabbit claims he frequently moves things to a place where they should not be for. Example rabbit used to smoke an old fashioned tobacco pipe. He always placed in his bedside drawer and in his nightstand. Before going to sleep one morning he woke up and it was no longer there. Robert searched Oliver's room but he could not find it anywhere. I needed to go into rabbits room to borrow a cord to charge my phone as my court shorten it and I would not be able to get to the store until much later I went nowadays. You can't get to the store at all well though this was. Yeah you can tell. It's dated story. That was when we could go in Papua stores. I went searching for because they normally do not go into his room. And have no idea where you normally puts things. Even though he's meticulous about where things are put so he can find them quickly when he wakes up. That sounds like you pat. I couldn't find it in any of the spots. I thought were obvious so I looked in the drawer under the foot of his bed. There was his pipe when he got home. I told him I found the pipe. And where where? And he just looked at me confused. He never uses that drawer for anything in his door. Stays locked due to pass issues with things going missing from his room so no one besides him myself and my husband could have moved it and none of us did. Bob also seems to get frustrated with my husband. My hubby is firmly on the Hashtag schemes. Team skeptic side. Oh I like her husband. This is despite the fact that Bob throws things that John from time to time. Especially if we've been talking about him recently and John has voiced his opinion that he does not believe Bob exists normally a short Shortwhile after this declaration something that John is place down near himself will fall to the floor. Once it was a plate of Spaghetti that he had put at the back of the wide of a wide dresser that was against the wall. Everyone in the room was more than arm's length away and it fell off in front of the dresser face down. We know it didn't just fall off the edge because the dresser was much wider than the plate also the Renault animals in the room at the time because we were eating in the door was closed to keep them out. Wow sounds very mischievous yeah. Poltergeists definitely in the Bob thing really rings true to me. Yeah I think Bob you know since his psychic powers to like knock play.

Ethics and Responsibility in the Jewelry Industry
"I have a fun fact. Did you know that between the two holidays? Valentine's Day and Mother's DAY CASS. American spent get this on average a staggering ten billion dollars every year on jewelry. Not Surprising. And that's just those two holidays alone. That's not including you know the winter holidays including birthdays anniversaries or engagements. That's only on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day which is incredible. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. And that's actually just a small fraction of the three hundred billion dollars exchanged globally from the mining of approximately ninety million carats of rough diamonds and sixteen hundred tons of gold every single year. And of course with that colossal sum of money on the line well. Human Nature can and does falter sadly succumbing sometimes to unbridled greed and avarice often quite literally on the backs of others. How many of us have really truly considered the true cost of our jewelry. I mean we may very well recall the price that we paid for it. But what about this other price? The human and environmental cost cast in twenty eighteen activists organization. Human Rights Watch published a study which is called the hidden cost of jewelry and it highlights some really heartbreaking egregious instances of human rights abuses and environmental tragedies stemming from unscrupulous mining operations such as when in two thousand eight members of this and Bob Way military staged a bloody takeover of the diamond fields and the country's Murang`a district and they slaughtered some two hundred civilian miners for the next six years. Certain factors of the government's armed forces military and police oversaw a brutal and ruthless program of torture and forced labor including forced child labor and their class to pilfer the diamond fields in two thousand eleven. Human Rights Watch documented a pervasive program of sexual violence against workers at the hands of the private security company hired to protect the Tara Mine in Papua New Guinea. While Canadian Gold Mining Company began mining operations in the Maroteaux district of northern Uganda without even notifying or securing the necessary rights or permissions from the indigenous Karamojong community. The grim reality is that gold around your neck. The silver on your wrist the platinum on your finger or the gems in your ears may very well have come for one of these mines or others like them but do not despair dress listeners. Because today we're going to bring you an episode which hopefully informs and educates you about some of these issues that are going on in the jewelry industry and we hope to shut a light on the ever growing movement to write these wrongs and also to institute responsibility and transparency all along the supply chain in the Jewelry Industry today. We are joined by jewelry designer educator and activist. Bliss Lau to talk about ethics and responsibility in the jewelry trade and what we as a consumer can do to effect change. Bless all welcome to the show bliss. Welcome to the show thanks I'm happy to be here. Yeah we're so excited to talk about Jewelry Today. But before we delve into what? I think will be some rather surprising subject matter for a lot of our listeners. I'm hoping that you can tell us a little bit about your own background. And how did you become a jewelry designer and specifically when did you begin zeroing in on some of the problems in the jewelry industry that we're going to cover today sure I? I went to Parsons as a studied fashion design and then I actually started off as a handbag designer and I did that for several years and I used to have this handbag that had the chains down the front of it that looked like the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge and at some point because I studied fashion design. I kind of was procrastinating. And for fun I made myself a body chain with a chain that had used on my handbags and it became like a huge explosive interest in the industry. Basically like what we would call viral. Now that was actually I was viral and it was the first time I ever heard the word was when it went. Viral eventually made myself actually. My first ring was a ring called the kaleidoscope bring which is still in my collection and because I studied apparel I wanted to make a ring that referenced apparel in the sense of when you get dressed you get up every day. It's a form of identity so you choose to put on your shirt and your jacket and your outfit and is who you are and when I wanted to enter into jewelry space. I didn't want to create something. That was an imposition on your body. I wanted to create something that in that same way would give you choice. The kaleidoscope ring is one ring made a four pieces so every single day. You can choose to wear it differently and it can evoke personality. That's what I love about it. I actually am mostly a bespoke bridal designer now and I have moved into fine jewelry in around twenty fourteen and I did that because it wasn't really a plan My now husband proposed to me with a sketchbook and asked me to design my own rang and it was actually at the Metropolitan Museum at the Alexander McQueen show Oh lovely because he knows I love fashion and it was the first experience that I had in picking out a gemstone and thinking about fine jewelry and then learning about fine jewelry and eventually I stopped making costume jewelry and just fully dove into making fine jewelry and bespoke bridal so we know each other quite well so I know your work quite well. You have been struggling a lot personally with some of the ethics within the jewelry industry and this is like one of the new major directions of your work. So when did you first start becoming aware that there were problems? I mean all of us we. Everyone knows that there are certain issues when it comes to gold and diamonds and things like that but it feels like a really big idea and when it's a really big idea it doesn't feel like you can do anything and one of the things that I love about. The jewelry industry is that your industry is essentially made up of a millions and millions of independent small businesses myself included. And when I started one of the things that I did that really made me realize that I could make an impact with my design and also simultaneously made me realize how challenging it can be was
"Short stories are the perfect way to address a range of issues in an immediate and succinct. Way Sean Ben has done just that in his collection entitled a couple of things before the end so sean welcome to three. Ci thanks very much for having me. Now what sort of did you have in mind? It's a bit ominous sort of title. Yea Well I wouldn't be the person I mean just about everybody's GonNa soonest ought to be thinking about what the next ten twenty thirty forty s log and if you begin to read even in the mainstream press you'll start to get warnings that if the sky gets full of more particles that make the earth hotter and hotter parts of the Middle? Part of the Earth are going to become more or less uninhabitable this century and serious water and food shortages will come along with that. I mean this is nothing else but what anyone who gets anyway. Nissim Sci. He's starting to tell us Now then the question would come. Kenneth fiction serve that what can fiction do Without saying the same thing over and over but what what to do with that was really interesting to me was what would the people I grew up with. I love And also people who weren't exactly like the people I grew up with. How are we all going to be with this? What he's going to happen to to quite the people I really know once serious privation serious shortages dot to happen all around us. There's one story at the end Bunka which goes into that. We'll come to that one but there are other sorts of ends in mind here. The gained the a period in your life The end of communication is another one. That comes up. So let's delve into some of these stories and hopefully it won't be all that ominous Because there are some fascinating things here you did. The first story is called scouts. Were you ever a boy scout? I have to go ahead and say that I was a boy scout. I was a boy scout in the nineteen seventies I was very. I was particularly bad at sports which were an Australian boy his special problem but one thing I could find do with me was put me in cub scouts. And that work that worked I was especially bad at what we in. The nineteen seventies was called foot clinic Stood there disconsolate. A very small boy. Seven or eight years old in the middle of big muddy oval. And all I wanted was people might remember this. You GotTa be game at the end but for me it really was standing around in an hour on a on a baddeck not understanding really what to do with the football. I remember years ago. Michael Looney telling the story that when he was boy out in the country he was sort of Eilly united and confused by football. What you were supposed to do when the ball came down to woods him he picked it up. Held it to his chest and ran through the goals. Naturally as as one would. But it's a right of passage in some ways you know learning the not earning the badges miss but at what point do you sort of. What will does it come to an end? If we want to talk about ending but you transition the development there what was I suppose one of the things that got some pythons about being a scout? I mean they certainly some comedy as well but what was what was maybe saddle. Poignant upbeat about being a scout in the seventies wars you were participating in the system in. You didn't exactly think about lock these you'll participating in a system that was actually dying all around you which was the old British USTRALIAN loyalty. Oh British Astrid Unite. The revolt was valuable. Said they weren't sort of nineteen seventy seven nine hundred seventy eight nine hundred seventy nine a NI- uniform saluting the flag And trying to be sort of good junior soldier. Boys in a Y. Or at the very least the kind of good boy that you would have. That Biden Powell know if people remember Lord Biden Powell the founder of the Scouting Movement. But if you go back and look at scouting for boys it's the idea of kind of purposeful cleanliness in a little boy. That's also always turning into the effort to sort of locate and destroy aliens. But Tom and I don't mean I don't mean from outer space I mean the ones we leave this a militarist element. This is it. So it's it's playing soldier but it's also got an idea of self theirself idea of self control in it. There's a list of things that are good boy does that a scout does a scout prepared but a scout is also sort of honest in a tainted in some ways and I don't mean to mock all of that hopefully the thing about that stories. It's not all pissing from a high on the scouting movement. It's getting to something. Which was that? There was something in that I mean. I know we feel like this a lot now. But there's something in that old idea of self control. Which is such a daily on fashionable idea. Now the scouting movement held onto a part of it. But of course to us. It just looks ridiculous that you would wear your little uniform and your little hat and salute a flag on a Tuesday night. It's not so much ridiculous. One eventually which happens in the story eventually grows out of it yes and reevaluate says you grow older so it has its purpose in its place but as you say a lot of traditions a dying as well and they've got a reinvent. I mean the notion of a boy's group alone today. Isis audience changed another thing. That's changed the royals. You've got him on August news lead. There is an incompetent. Monarchist Focus Group pretty early in the and that comes out of the Scout Story too. Which is it goes to the whole idea of the Shia strangeness of trying to make an England down the bottom of Asia which we really did try and do. I went to London for the first time. Not that long gone about ten years ago. I had that thing that many many strengths must have had. Which is the shock of recognition that once you get through cock fosters on that train and start to going to London accord. It looks exactly like Hawthorne it looks. Exactly like Moldovan down to the last and you begin to understand why that you had before that we that that the F. It was really just to make these places again. The idea of Kemba well below Laos below. Papua we really tried for that and again I think one of the things. That's hopefully interesting about growing up. In the seventies I think the seventies there was a was a real transition time where that old idea that we could somehow Cape together an England down here began to break up and wash away and so and then then I mean then I think plenty of people listening to this would know this. But in a way the bill for that wasn't paid until the nineteen ninety s in the nineteen nineties. We had that exuberant Tom where we thought well. No no money in this and we'll just be Australian. It's all we can let England going by the nineteen ninety by the Howard years. You had the understanding that it was actually going to be something that we felt a lot more Sarah about a lot more angry about and we're going to punish somebody else but we still had politicians bringing back knighthoods and such luck. And that's you that's interesting but that was what was interesting about the Abbot Attempt. In about the time of that story about the top of that royal story where it really much to light now and even people that you wouldn't expect or the I thought the idea of Sir Prince Phillip and the first strategy night. All that's right it will be Prince Philip. Did you give Edinburgh that? The whole country in two thousand fifteen couldn't take that But just as Australia was reinventing itself oil or imagining its identity. Which is a growing sort of evolution. The monarchy is sort of caught in the same bind. Harry and Meghan done Mike it into the story necessarily only slightly but they trying to establish their own identity in a new ish. Can you hold on to the monarchy? This is where I think I mean. I think this is still true. This little against what I just said but I still think it's a strain schizophrenia. What you would think of is the oldest. Dr Steele holds a lot. Hold on a lot for monarchy and foreign idea of England that still does persist in one of the places it does possess these in those people in that royal family in the Queen and to some extent. Now I mean we tried Diana but now much more and William and Kate but the thing that Tom the thing about that he says it's just getting hotter and hotter for any family any group of individuals to actually be able to carry off what you need to do to be a barely successful enough royalty in the face of the sheer amount of virulent attention that the entertainment system is GonNa WanNa put on you. It's it's pretty much going to be impossible to be monarchy in the next fifty but also the the monarchy speaks to a tradition that goes back centuries which hasn't necessarily evolved and changed with the Moore's that go on today which is it's appeal. Which is the thing we desperately hope for that. You could point to any one group of things and say you want change will you? You'll stay the same. You promised The problem is is that as you say with them. What Harry and Megan is it. They couldn't take the deal that will often because the deal starts to get so strange which is listen. You'll be a representative of what is good in a sense. He's more self control. This idea that we're after over and over again but at the same time will pretty much persecute and you will be at you all the time. You'll open your door in the morning and hundreds of us where we tried to watch you and I I can't understand. I don't get a sense of whether this is to their credit or not. They just refuse that. Were like this is so awful. This is more or less like a kind of strange it privileged. But it's also a persecution and can leave. Just leave
The Basque Carnivals
"Let's start with a look at the Mardi Gras and Carnival celebrations going on in Basque country. The customs and street parties will vary from town to town one of the oldest cultures in Europe. The Basques include some interesting public festivities in the days leading up to the fasting period of length traditions. That sometimes go back further than anyone can remember for a peek at how they do carnival in Basque country. We're joined by Claire Noah. She's from Hess Barron in the French Basque country and a Gustin lives in San Sebastian. On the Spanish side of the border. Welcome Claire and Augustine. Thank you very much so first of all. You're both from best country. Claire who are the Basques just very briefly and the basket is one of the oldest civilization in Europe and we are divided on those two parts one in France in another Barton Spain and Augustine. Those the language of Basque people yes. We speak Basque language which we call Skater. Who Scatter I WANNA talk about. Carnival carnival basically is the blow out before lent that leads up to Holy Week and Easter. It goes way back to even pre Christian Times on trying to get through the winter and there's a hope for resurrection for new crops in the fields for the end of the hunger time and the darkest depths of winter. I think the meat was going to go bad. And they had to eat it. All or something or carnival. Carney is the word meat and that led up to forty days of denial lent and then Easter so we know Mardi Gras in New Orleans. That's basically fat Tuesday in French. And IT'S CARNIVAL TIME RIGHT. Turn tell me about carnival. Because it's a big deal in Basque country. A Gustin what is carnival in your perspective. As a person in Basque country we have to waste of Celebrating carnival the more more than Christian celebrations. There are more popular on the Spanish side on the more traditional Pagan celebrations. That you can find in the past country of France. The difference is the recent history. I mean this pagan celebrations were banned by the dictator Franco for thirty five years He banned the use of the language and all kind of Celebrations related to pass or and this was banned. Sue was probably lost the in that time. So let me get this straight. You've got Basque culture. Which is a lot of ways? The same in France and in Spain but carnival is a mix of Christian and pagan traditions. And when you see these crazy creatures jumping up and down in Europe in many cultures it's pre Christian and it's a way to integrate the the indigenous religion in ancient times with the Christian. The newer religion and Franco was allied very carefully with the Catholic Church in Spain. He didn't want any pagan influence in the Spanish Basque country so he said this is a Christian festival none of that Pagan stuff but in France they were more free to have let loose with the pagan craziness. Correct correct Franco considered himself the highest representation of the Catholic Church and turn the country into a religious state Now clear I would imagine in France. Then you have some pretty wild costumes when people dress up during carnival especially where the Pagans go crazy in the French side of the border. What is the carnival? Can you just were on radio but paint a picture for look like for me? It's colorful with many natural things so we will have flowers leaves and we will have ribbons. We will have a chilling chuck which is a small bells everywhere. So you have to hear the carnival and you have to say it's an explosion. Okay of joy. It's just a moment where you go out from last year and everything that went wrong and you wish something really good for the next one so you just have to explodes yourself and just let it go. Go out with your animal part of you. Let your animal free and you're inside and we all have this side in so we have just. This is the perfect moment just to and then you start again so you dress up. There's music there's staying up all night. What's going on in different places? You've got different carnivals into French part of the Basque country three provinces for example Nepali which is really famous. You've got cash Celtic. So those people are going from house to house every weekend before carnival low even after they go to each house. They had get to know the neighborhood. So it's kind of ritual and they'll go to every house they sing. They play music. They DANCE. They share several cups of wine. And then it's a big party the tired but it's it's really nice. This is so interesting because I've been going to the best country for a long time and I have to be honest. I feel there's more character and enthusiasm in Spain because the French Basques are more French to me. More controlled by Peres but here on carnival. You let that ask animal that when you hear Claire. Talking about that from the Spanish Basque side on Carnival do you relate to have an animal you're gonNA lose all And fortunately now we have just a couple of little towns in the north of Navarro which are having the celebration in which the these men are carrying big belts that are bouncing and making big noise. Dig Like cowbells accounting. Yes huge cultures. A lot of this You know animal caretaking in the Malki. As the purpose of it is to wake the nature awake. The youth. Springtime is communist very much related to the end of winter. Welcome in the New Year and also we can in the nature and the spring is coming. So he's very much really. That's something you can see in two different towns in the north of Pamplona Navarre and also a couple of towns in the area outside San Sebastian. When I think of eastern Spain anyways I think of processions solemn processions like in savvy and so on some Amazon Too Holy Week Carnival feels a little more. Just apart and in. Holy Week is more sacred. Yes especially in the spiny side. You'RE GONNA see is big. Parades like you'd like him to turn off taller than most popular. One people go from all the areas. Go and see this parade. Our guest from Basque country are Agustin Cerita from San Sebastian Spain and Claire. Moya from aspirin a little town outside zone in the southwest corner of France.
New opportunity to boost Indonesia-Australia economic ties - The Jakarta Post
"Few international problems in the post world war. Two era have proved difficult for our nation as development of friendly policy towards indonesia. Just think about it. Jakarta's annexation of west papua in nine hundred sixty to the attempted coup d'etat and successful counter-coup by the indonesian army that was nineteen sixty five the invasion of as. Taymor seventy five. The dili massacre ninety. One the east team or mission in ninety nine. And who can forget the controversies over terror. Attacks live cadillacs bullpens successive wives of boatpeople this spying revelations and drug trade and of course those executions so has president jarkko daito or jacuzzi or jacoby as he's known has. His visit marked a new era in australia. Indonesia relations this week to cowie was only the second indonesian leader to address a joint sitting of parliament and he came to camera bearing a gift. He's approval of the trade deal between our two countries. Greg feely is associate professor of indonesian politics at the australian national university's college of asia and the pacific and diming kingsbury is professor international politics at deakin university in melbourne. greg damian. Welcome back to our in. Thank you now damien. Does that you kelly visit this week. Does that maka a dramatic breakthrough in australia. Indonesia relations look it's a really positive sign and it does mock an improvement in relations but i don think in itself comprises an entirely new relationship. It's just a step in the right direction. Okay so the the relationship still presumably dogged by bitterness and suspicion but it was obvious support and even warmth towards education from both sides of politics gregg fairly. Yes that's right i think The y.`all would characterize it is the jacobi visa was building on the breakthrough which is the comprehensive economic partnership agreement. That was signed early last year. And what saw with dakota's visa was. He's personal preparedness and preparedness. He's government to really put its white behind the agreement. I think a lot of people think the agreement in pie terms is very good but the question is canopy implemented properly. Can the red type be cleared away in indonesia. Can we persuade australian businesses to invest more Generously in indonesia and i think the jacoby visa guy very positive signs for that still a lot of things to done for that The potential of that agreement to be realized but it was really good. Move in that direction. Again it's been said that. The many lingering suspicions profile in jakarta indonesians still resent l leading role insecure in a team os independence because it was more than twenty years ago. Yes i think One of the ironies here he said indonesia now has very good relations with east t- more and he's teamer leaders Fighted in fact when i go to jakarta and the strata is still has this legacy of suspicion towards indonesia. I think you have to back. Partly in history this great saints vulnerability that Many asians feel that logic countries or large countries around them at trying to split up their country to conduct. Bulkin is it and the ace taymor. Even though he's team always not part of the original borders of the dutch colony. Die still feel that as team will confirmed that Other countries have these designs upon the country and upon its unity and after his team. More focusing shifted to papa. This strategy may still want to divide papua dining. You've written a lot about west papua and at the heart of the standoff in two thousand and six paul showed that something like seventy five percent of australian supported independence for the former dutch colony. This why the indonesians are uneasy about estrada's position. He certainly one of the issues in the makeup of mistrust and complexity in the relationship There's there's been longstanding depths in jakarta's to either strang government doesn't do more to acquire pro-separatist Sentiment in australia. They believe the particularly the ngo sector has played a role in stirring up separatist sentiment in west. Papua and there is Continuing concern that australia has too much of a focus particularly on eastern indonesia which is also the poorest part of the country. Well how then do we bridge. These divides greg. I mean to. What extent is this new free. Try deal. This is the so-called indonesia australia comprehensive economic partnership agreement. Ten years in the making to what extent does that he'll these divisions. I don't know that it heals the divisions poseidon. I think many of the the list of things you you sit out at the beginning of the interview. I think we have always had the potential. I knew things like that to occur but one of the consistently underperforming parts of the bilateral relationship has been the economic ties and so this comprehensive agreement will hopefully see much more economic activity between the two countries and that in itself might provide some kind of deepest ability but if the economic relationship expand by site thirty to forty percents in the next few years diamond. Wouldn't the free try deal really mocking important development for the relationship a look. There's no question that it's an important step in in in strengthening relationship. This guy is back to what gareth evans was talking about in the nineteen eighties. Where he said we needed to add ballast to the relationship unbalanced. He meant if we can get a strong economic relationship between australia and indonesia implies than the rest of it will follow behind because there will be a an upfront primary interest in preserving the economic relationship. And that's always been a difficulty. In the relations destroy and strength companies have invested in indonesia but not to a great extent. The head found difficulties. There this free trade agreement certainly opens up more opportunity for investments and tried but again and again as greg has alluded to. I think the question will be. How much strategies is to take out this opportunity and whether or not they say the the problems of doing business in indonesia over combat is free trade agreement whether or not there's going to be impediments to a greater degree of engagement. My guests greg. Feely from new in camera and damien. Kingsbury from deacon in melvin. And here's a little fun fact. This is according to the australian this week. It was chris. Bowen the library from benca podcast on iran and between the lines. It was chris bowen in his shirt who walked away the most chuffed with these brave. Jacoby interaction we he. The president complimented bowen's flawless fluency in indonesian. Little known fact chris. Bowen speaks indonesian now. A few years ago china's president she addressed indonesia's legislature to great fanfare. So the fees guy. Now what's the nature of the relationship now between jakarta and beijing greg. There's a lot of similarities between indonesia's relations with china and distributors Janis niger economic partner for indonesia. It's also niger investor in the country indonesia's increasing the Pot of china's belt and road initiative. So it's getting a lot of development money. These increasing penetration of lodge chinese corporations building infrastructure for example hospitalized row link between the capital jakarta and the regional capital abandon So there's a. There's a lot of economic activity happening and president. She has very good personal relationship with prisoner jacoby but they're also tensions. One of the tensions is chinese fishing boat incursions into indonesian territorial waters In near the south china sea in the name of the island of tuna and that causes a lot of angst in indonesia sometimes confrontation between Nio vessels of both countries. Another problem is a fairly high level of underwent lying suspicion towards the chinese in indonesia so this often bubbles politically to the surface in indonesia and people say that indonesia is at risk of losing some sovereignty to the chinese and so this is always a break for a leader. Such as jacoby who badly needs chinese investment and the development expertise if he saying as Ext doing that excessively will then he will be attacked for that. Well could chana's rise than i mean. It's obviously threatening. The integrity of sovereign states around the region diamond could could china's roz helped draw camera and jakarta even closer. Yes look there's been a discussion now going back several years in canberra about a closest security relationship within the news yet it seems to be a natural hartman in the region Geography i think determines that to a large extent but our strategic interests similar in relation to china about countries want to have a strong economic relationship with china We want to have china's investments and tried to sell into china but we also want to limit china's expansion in the region strategic rich particularly in the south china sea and In relation to them turner islands which is at the southwest of the south china saying there is neither lapping climbed by china and indonesia. And that's what to the tensions of mid january this year. What we're seeing though is. Indonesia is welcoming china roman hand but in terms of economic growth and development but in terms of china's growing strategic runyon ambition. There's a great deal of skepticism. I think in indonesia as the reason chinandega familiar story. Now let's turn finally gentlemen to indonesia internally. Let's get your reaction to something. The indonesian journalist. Julia sirak osama. This is what she told my. Rn colleague andrew west. This week joey. His record on democracy and human rights has declined and in fact now many activists think that not just activists observers think that democracy indonesia has lowest point in twenty years. It is ironic since when we had the reform era after suharto stepped down. That was supposed to be the beginning of democratization in indonesia but that has opened up a pandora's box and released all the traditional religious conservatives and mainly religious groups has sacrificed human rights. And what he says in a book phobia and intolerance for the sake. Offline call stability. Indonesian journalist julia sura kasama on iran's religion and ethics program. This week diming kingsbury. Look i think that Jacoby has moved in a couple of areas which have raised eyebrows. About his commitment to a plurality and human rights particular around the issues of religion and religious tolerance and so on. But broadly. I think jacoby is an inheritor of the reform tradition particularly that started by cecilia among indiana and that he really is deepening and embedding democratic practice. If we some limitations around the edges. Yeah well greg failure. I mean it's often argued that indonesia the fourth because nation in the world. We tend to forget that. It represents a persistent triumph of democracy this the nation journalists big for a lot of activists when she says that the indonesian ideal of tolerance really has been destroyed. So i think it's probably i'll i think she's somewhat. This is always a matter of the bites. Don't mean any disrespect to julius Sort of kasuma but Under jacoby in fact. Religious tolerance has somewhat improved on democracy. Some of the things that jacoby has initiated have really harmed the quality of democracy and there are several things that are being discussed by. he's government wrought now and by the parliament which if implemented could be a considerable reversal. He wouldn't stop indonesia being a democracy. But it would reduce the quality of the democracy greg damian and important discussion. Thanks so much again for being on our end

"All right kwong scientists show and tell tell me about our geologists Andrea Dutton well we described Andrea as like a CSI investigator of sea level rise but I would also consider her a time traveler to she looked specifically for fossil coral goals from this period called the last interglacial one hundred twenty five thousand years ago Oh so bp what before the podcast gone it's terrible joke anyway last interglacial earth was a little warmer than it is now and her work suggests that oceans were twenty to thirty feet higher than they are today Whoa yeah and by gathering data from the last time Earth got the swarm the last interglacial win ice sheets melted and sea levels rose Andrea can offer insights into how it could all go down in our present day okay that that is very cool and seems relevant Is there anything interesting that she's learned so far okay well Andrew told me about this one trip to the Seychelles this island nation in the Indian Ocean where her team found fossil corals at a really high elevation really high and that freaked her out why's that that's because Andrea new in that moment that in order for the corals have been that high for the ocean who've risen to that point put them there the Antarctic ice sheet must have been melting at that time that's the the single biggest massive ice on earth so when we got this result in the Seychelles I did walk away from the outcrop and I sat down on the beach and I thought myself you know what people are not going to like this because I knew right away meant that in artists have contributed a lot of ice melted and that was not good news for our future because it means that we may be headed in the same direction meaning the Antarctic icesheet may melt and contribute to sea level rise in the same way in our time so we have some clarity on what the future could look like because Andrea is traveling back in time to gather this information from oceans in the ancient past I'm into it I'm nervous about it but I'm into it yeah okay so tell me about the other Macarthur winner tell me about Stacey Stacey Jupiter I'm forty three years old and I'm the Melania director with the Wildlife Conservation Society Melanesia is a region in the Pacific Ocean home to all these island nations Fiji where she's located Papua New Guinea the Solomon Islands just to name a few the water is just beyond her doorstep and I'm trying to get out as much as I can and take my three year old son out as well we love to go for puddle and just show him the crabs on the seawall and we'd go look for sea snakes or raise that might scoot off as we go over them so it's a nice place just to look out and be inspired by the Marine Environment Fiji is spread across three hundred islands stacey lives in the capital Suva where she thinks a lot about how to work with locals around conservation okay how does she do well she not only looks at the hard science of what's happening to say the fish the coral reefs but the environmental factors human activity to for her conservation means not only protecting the land but the people who live on continuing their need for sustainable jobs access to natural resources their physical health or mental health sometimes this looks like formal programs other times it looks like this Oh okay this is my favorite type of sites communication what you're watching is a youtube clip of one hundred twenty five people disco dancing in the streets of Suva organized this flash mob with the motto Moran eggs more fish like all flash they're calling on the government to protect areas where fish come together to reproduce they're kind of like discos okay this frenzy of fish movement as they release their eggs and that's why it was a disco inspired flash mob this is some solid science outreach right here so fun that's not all Stacey has done she's commissioned a comic book why is she having so much fun during science I did not have this much fun well it's because you didn't help commission back in the river so they have this epic journey they come across all these obstacles on the way and to explain this whole process to kids she created a comic book called the adventures of Joe Jacobi he's a little bit precocious he gets lost from the rest of his school and he ends up having to go back upstream with this kind of crazy inventor scientists crab and his sidekicks now and through the story of them trying to get upstream defined his home they encounter all of the different hazards of human impact all along the way like fishing and dams and river sediment and then the Wildlife Conservation Society's Fiji program which Stacey used to run turned the comic book into a puppet show routed to schools and kids loved it I was onboard until puppets got involved you would love this matty in the moment right after the DOJ Gobi puppet encounters Barracuda are you sure it's just not them screaming because there's nobody knows the mysteries of children all the kids were given river-monitoring kits afterwards with the idea of encouraging there virtue of the land one day as adults indigenous people have tenure over about eighty seven to ninety eight percent of all of the land in Melanesia until it re the is those kids when they grow up they're the ones who will be looking after the place because they they own the land and they have the rights to say whether or not they're going to sleep this is pretty amazing like the level of creativity here and engagement and fun I am all for this sands puppets yeah over the phone in before our interview Stacy said to me look I'm trained in science but what moves people is stories each creativity is a big part of how she approaches commercialisation and your field and try to stay within one field and say you are the expert on this one particular topic but for myself I always didn't rebelled against that I really wanted to be more of a generalist and able to look across disciplines across different habitats and I think that and that's what's needed stacy's to tackle these seemingly intractable global problems stacey and Andrea they work on opposite sides of the world but they know each other and Andrea actually works with another macarthur fellow in this cohort Jerry Metro Rica at Harvard he interprets her data about corals so that it can

Coach clicked things berry says he'll allow players to have cell phone breaks every twenty minutes or so during team meetings. At least three people who lost friends or family in school shootings have killed themselves. In the last week, highlighting the effects of trauma, and the problem that news of suicides can encourage copycats to were students who survived the one last March at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in parkland, Florida, the other was the father of a first grader who died in the two thousand twelve sandy hook elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Kimberly, Leonard health reporter at the Washington Examiner says they suffered through trauma grief or survivor's guilt, Kimberly. Explain one of the things that experts cautioned against when looking at tragic cases of suicide like these is simplifying their overall cause and effect. It is known that people who've been through traumatic events as two of the students who killed themselves this past week had been through obviously with the school shooting at. Parkland. And also that people who are grieving struggle a lot with mental health issues. One of the things that experts say is that it's important when people go through these experiences to be able to find ways to support them. So that they're getting the help that they need so for people who do this then not so I guess lump them into a category. But are they having what is now like a permanent mental health issues or could this be temporary in which they're driven to take their own lives or mental health issues are very treatable. It's just that if they're not treated, they can certainly get become a lot worse. One of the moms said that her daughter had really struggled with what's known as her revival skilled one of good friends had had died in the parkland shooting. And you know, these teenagers are obviously pretty high profile after what they've been will. They've been outspoken about violence and save also. So you know, really tried to raise awareness about what has happened in. And in more been a lot more vocal than other students who have face these difficulties one of the fathers who killed himself this past weekend was the father of a child who was killed in Newtown back in twenty twelve twenty twelve it seemed, you know, obviously anyone going through that is facing a significant amount of grease, and those kinds of issues can really, you know, cause suicidal thoughts would be considered. Can make some of those spots a lot worse than so that's why experts really emphasized the need to support people over the long term not just right after the tragedy happens. Yeah. Trying to understand the timeline here to for example. The two students connected to stoneman Stillman Douglas high school. This was about a year after that shooting were they were teenagers. And then you had the father writes a little bit of an older adult who did this but six and a half years later. Right. Right. Well, it just it just really underscores how complex suicide is. And it underscores that you know, there's rarely ever a senior issue. That's going on. We do know that people who have been through trauma who and who therefore developing depression, anxiety, how higher risk for suicide. It doesn't mean. It's not treatable. But it does mean that, you know, people who work in the mental health field really need to have an eye out for those who faced trauma. We're speaking with Kimberly Leonard health reporter at the Washington Examiner. She's written a piece entitled suicides after mass shootings. Underlying contagion of high profile tragedies talking about the three people that have taken their lives recently in connection with the shooting in parkland, Florida, and the one in Newtown, Connecticut from six and a half years ago, you wrote to despite the rise suicide policy has not received considerable attention from federal lawmakers who I guess who would like to see them do something. What certainly advocates against suicide prevention say that it's time. And it really is what what's going on. Now is is very tragic, of course. And it's also underscoring a rise in suicide that we've seen over the past couple of decades, roughly forty thousand forty seven thousand people took their lives in two thousand seventeen according to the latest federal data that we have. And we know that suicide is the tense leading cause of death in the United States. We know that among older teenagers. It's actually the second leading cause of death. And so it really is what can be viewed as a national public health issue and needs to be cupboard where a certain way by the media needs to make sure and there needs to be better resources for people who are struggling with mental health issues is what I'm advocates say in order to really push back on the trends that we're seeing Kimberly.

I know what you want to talk about. And believe me, I'm going to spend most of the time talking about it. But I would be remiss in not getting your take on what we've been talking about. Which is it's colon cancer awareness month and this younger onset colon cancer. And then the other story about heart attacks who are forty or younger, the number steadily increasing over the last decade couple of big stories. I think yeah. So, you know, the the interesting incidents changes in diseases than younger people isn't really clear, but you know, we've noticed a force over the last couple of decades that people have become less fit. They have become more overweight. They have taken on more sedentary lives. So, you know, maybe there's something there. There's also some clear diet changes relative. Let's say colon cancer. You know, whether it's eating less, fiber weather, if eating more types of needs, whether it's a change in our. Gut microbiome in the bacteria that populate us. There's something going on. That's obviously very different, obviously, we're also screaming a little bit more aggressive. So we're able to catch things hopefully a little bit earlier. But that's really what it comes down to, you know, relatives so identifying especially colon cancer younger people, you really do have to pay attention to symptoms because right now the guidelines really recommend starting aggressive spray our restaurant, they regular screening until age forty five or fifty. So, you know, you're younger than forty five and you have symptoms if you have diarrhea if you notice you're still if you noticed a significant change in your bowel habits, those are all things that should prompt. You to see your doctor and your doctor can do more careful testing. There has been some sort of a shift. We just don't know exactly what the source of it. It'll be fascinating to see. We've talked in the past switching to what we were scheduled to talk about. I've talked about it. You've talked about it. Everybody has that. Thirty years ago when somebody was sixty five they acted like they were old they appeared to be old sixty five you know, that's ridiculous now, however, what a fascinating study published in Lancet by universities university of Washington folks about the real physiological feelings and issues about turning sixty five and how depending on where you live. It's completely different. Yeah. Exactly. You know, everyone does know that older person that feels are looks much younger. And likewise, you know, some people that are young that seemed to have maybe, you know, taking a little bit of a like taking more of a toll on them. Well, that's holds true. When you look at the health across an entire country. It's sort of what you would consider the help average of the entire country and the results of the study. Worrying fact, surprising because of the the the breath that is a number of years that covered the best aged seniors in some countries versus the other. And what I mean by that is the average age of seventy six year old Japanese person at the average health, I should say of a seventy six year old Japanese person was as old as the average sixty five year old person globally and on the other end the average forty six year old in Papua New Guinea felt like the average sixty five year old person globally as a thirty year difference. So seventy six year olds where like. Forty six year old in Papua New Guinea, Oregon's the other way to put it is forty six year olds for like seventy six year old Japanese. Here's another way to put it. You. Don't wanna be living Papa NEW GUINEA. Well, yeah. I mean, there's there is actually a lot to be said about the way these different countries either approach help or maybe some of the genetic nature to the people in that population. Really an interesting step toward moving away from looking at a person's chronological age that at their age since I really taking a person who's what I referred to help age into account, which ultimately might be more important as we live longer. We want more quality years. And so it's not about living longer and being sick. When you're old, but you wanna have healthy years now here in the United States, we were slightly above the global average. So this was the study was done. So that if they were comparing every country to the global average sixty five year old well in the United States, the global average was sixty eight point five year old that is sixty eight point five year old felt like sixty five year old. So we're about three years fired than the global average. But in ratings that would the United States at fifty four from the top which there were one hundred ninety five he studied. So we're nowhere near the top. And I think the big picture here is that at fifty four. There is a lot of room to. Prove to the number one position, which is Japan. I mean, imagine if instead of feeling like a sixty five year old at sixty eight or sixty eight year old even you didn't feel like that until you were actually seventy six how much better that would feel across the population of the United States. Let me give that let me give that very quickly number one is Japan at seventy six point one years, followed by Switzerland Seventy-six, France, seventy six Singapore, seventy six this is when you feel physically and with the maladies that come with being sixty five don't hit you to your seventy six in Japan, Switzerland, France and Singapore, followed by Kuwait, South Korea, Spain Italy, Puerto Rico, Peru the bottom of the top ten seventy four point three. And we're forty fifty fourth in line. So we have a long way to come. Right. Exactly. Now, you know, it's also interesting to note that although most of the countries with those better health ages like Japan can be. Wealthier nations there were countries like Mexico or Peru or practically United States like Puerto Rico, which had still a much much higher ages than the average American. So it doesn't necessarily have to do with the wealth of the country. It has something to you with, you know, whether it's the climate whether it's the lifestyle the population, genetically there's something there that needs to be studied to figure out how how we can not just extend our lives, but extend our healthy years in our lives.

I'd be figure skating by myself, or you know, they'd be drinking beer up on the mountain, and I'd be sort of fumbling through the woods on my own. So so I think I always thought a little bit displaced potentially. Would you consider yourself alone? Or now. Consider myself and perpetual conflict now because I I sort of wearing two hats all the time. So so yes, I love to go in and spend time in the middle of nature on my own. And yet simultaneously. I an organizer and I'm bringing people together. It's so it's two hats require almost completely different kinds of lifestyles as an artist you have to spend quite a lot of time alone. But as an organizer you have spent quite a lot of time organising, quite a lot of people. So it's challenging, and I try to mitigate by getting out of New York City, you know, I just drove through Hokkaido Japan. And last year, I went through Papua New Guinea and then the before the depths of Africa. So so I tried to get out, and I try to balance time out or hide it my house, but but it is truly a challenging because I always kind of in between those two things. Now, I knew your father was an avid collector, and you followed suit from what I understand when you were a kid you could often be found digging through other people's garbage and bringing home all sorts of things to arrange in your bedroom.

He's curious case earlier with monocle Georgina Godwin, Kiara Ramallah and Ben Ryland. This is has not so surprising coming from this side of the publishing spectrum. Anyway. So Victoria, obviously leans a little bit to lift, well, maybe a lot of the left as of the law state election, quite dramatic has. Indeed. Indeed. So it's perhaps not surprising to see this sort of statement popping out. Of victoria. But I do think it is a very healthy won the debate over asylum seekers and astray these immigration policies, which are of course, quite shamefully seen across the world in Australia is a very very reluctant debate for anyone to have an, unfortunately, we do have this confession of the idea of what constitutes border protection with how we should detain people who do come to a stray Leah by boat. The argument is that if you sail to a stray Ilya by boat, and you try to to to obtain asylum that way, then you will never ever be eligible to be resettled in a stray. Ilya the reasoning being that that then destroys the the allure of stralia from the perspective of people smugglers and travelling to Australia by boat is a very very dangerous thing to do. So there is an argument to be made about wanting to destroy the people smuggling market the beat question, then comes up when we ask what happens to those people that we do detain. We can't just lock them up forever. That's what's happening. Now, you've got. Definite detention. And that's that's what's happened to the ruse Bhutani. There's no light at the end of the tunnel for a lot of these people. And you've got you've got children locked up in these centers as well. It isn't absolutely hopeless horrific set of circumstances. Most of most Australians don't want to have this debate. And if it ends if it ever gets brought up politically, it's usually in in the context of well, if we change anything at all you're going to have the floods of people coming back to a stray, which is what happened when Kevin Rudd tried to change it as prime minister for for a while. And that has simply brought both sides of politics to the exact same position on this. And and until we can separate these two things until we can say, yes, it's true. We we need to make sure that we destroy the business model people smugglers. But at the same time, we can't do that at the expense of people's human rights until we are at a place where politically that sort of argument can be put to the Indian people. None of this is going to change. I hope that the awarding of this. Of this literary prize to Bayrou's the Chinese going to put that debate back in the public the spectrum. But unfortunately, we've got an election coming up in probably around may. And that's not going to be one of the issues. That's going to be voted upon certainly notes. Kiara does a gesture like this. This is not to detracted old from whatever literary merits bears Chinese book my possess. I I have not as yet read it.

I'll give you a weird example deandre Jordan is a career forty eight percent free throw site this year, shooting seventy one twenty two he changed everything. He basically started over his feet or in a different position. His hands are in a different position. And right before he shoots watch this next time. You see the Mavericks play. Keep pay close attention to Jordan. You'll see right before he shoots. He's got the ball in his hands. He will turn to one of his teammates and say something about the defense. He'll say, hey, when we go back down the other end where in his own right or man to man on the other side, or I got so take himself out of his head for correct to get his mind off of it was remember the movie major league they had that catcher. I think it was one of the sequels that the catcher who couldn't throw the ball back to the pitcher. Yep. And they had him like think of of Victoria's Secret. Catalogs to get his head it out of his head. And he threw about I it's time for stuff like this absurd. Ridiculous doesn't necessarily make sense stuff to try with this free throw problem. And I think that they if they're not considering it now, they should they. Absolutely should. All right. We got fasttrack coming up for you in ten minutes. Mason in Ireland ESPN LA. Yeah. I completely agree. Last night was must win for the Lakers. Tea and Michael Thompson agree with you. Did Michael Thomson say they both said it. So I don't know..

"Responsibility KNB are six eighty days. Gary radnich show with Larry Krueger Gerry's ready to go right now. Right now. Ready to go right now. I'm looking at this this lineup. We've got today. Mike Pereira gets normally on Monday. He doesn't work. Doesn't work on Christmas or New Year's Eve. So he'll be on with us. Jim Ryan will be on. And then money pool will come on. And grunt a little bit about the warriors. I have to admit I'm I was I've been I would say pretty good media friends with Ted Robinson. And Greg Papa for I guess thirty five years. So, you know, they're friends, you know, media friends, right? You know, I don't dance on the ceiling with him. But they're both friends of mine. Good guys both talented people and a little bit surprised this morning, but Greg is dynamic, you know, he's he's a dynamic radio guy. But Ken Robinson is going to. Now. Do the do the forty Niner games ever Papua. Ted will stay with the with the organization so good good for all concerned. I've just saying I I was shocked a little bit Notre Dame. Ted Notre Dame? Right. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think Greg Papa belongs in the broadcast booth. I don't think he was ready to to step away from that some forty Niner fans this morning, I've been asking will he be allowed to be as critical because that's kind of what got him in trouble with Mark Davis is will he be a more more neutral voice now on the forty Niners. I think it'd be good in the booth with Tim. Yeah. And there's always more to it. I don't even know if again, this is this is my opinion when you say critical stuff off the the the. Away from the mic that you never know. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, if I if I'm running a station, and I ask you to do something. You don't wanna do? There's always more to it that oh my gosh. She said that was a bad. Call got to get rid of a you know, so there's always word of everything. And I Mark Davis. No offense. If I was going to bet my life on Mark Davis making good moves right now. Right. Right. Well, this edit flowers, and that's the other side of this is how to raider fans feel about this. I mean, you you lose your team. You lose your broadcast right now. Not only is Greg hop out of the greater broadcast booth. But he's going to the team that most railfan who disliked they don't even have a place to play. I'm not worried if I'm a raider fan now, and I've been saying this for ever since I knew they were going back to Vegas first time. All right. You were too young. Remember when they left the first time, and you go. All right. Well, Al Davis. My guys say went down won the Super Bowl back and forth in new we we still got a lot to root for but hell they're gonna leave. Somebody a second time. I think even the staunchest fan has got a little twist in. And you know, it's a terrible feeling to have your team up and up and leave now that they're leaving a year before their stadiums. Even done. They should have really worked this out to stay here for at least one more. But if I'm if I'm the forty Niners. I don't want anybody in my house down Levi. Yeah. Not even for the right price. Gary. Well, that's just it. Do they need money? I think that's the one thing you own an NFL team. You're not hurting for money. Isn't that what you're hosting bowl games and Taylor swift concerts to fill? The stadium. Ten dates a year. There is a fair question to with the what did they draw for the the Oregon game on New Year's? I didn't look to me. Yeah. I got you have to answer this for even with the national championship game. I mean, I'm glad we have it just another thing in the bay area. But why would you pick a non college area to host these games? And specifically an area that people really don't care about college football or southern college football today. Yeah. That surprises me because this approach town always has been, and we don't, you know, on the back burner is Stanford and Cal good for you know, good for Stanford. They won the sun bowl. I gotta be honest. I don't know how many of your I did not watch one single play of a ballgame until last weekend. Then you watch the national champion. Yeah. Right. Right. The new year with the big six that they did yesterday. Little bit Ohio yesterday. Something about her on my chest. You know? I just I just nothing rings true to me about him. I suppose to celebrate this guy standing up there smiling with his trophy at the end. Like are we viewing him as like this? Great college football. I caught. I know what he's done is great and the the multiple national championships in the recruiting. But are we really praising this guy? Well, you look at his record. I mean, that's the way life is. If you have a good record. I mean, look at it. Like fourth all time. You know, there's Newt Rodney at the top. And then. It's just something about I don't know. It's something when your thing in life is go out and convince the seventeen and eighteen year old to come. And have me be your daddy. Which is great. And his parents to listen don't get me wrong. It's the way the game is laid. But oh like he goes into these. It's like the old joke. I used to do it Vegas banquets till I did it one too many times. I when they'd say tart just wants to help young people, and then I would go. Yeah. They're all six ten in black. His wife. So that's enough of that joke. She wasn't evident. Well, she'd heard it three times. And then, but it was funny. He got a big laugh every time. But it's true. When your whole when you're thing in life is to go out and convince young people to were down out sometimes well oftentimes, and this has gotta be hungry. That's we talk about this all the time. You son your your kids play all these different youth leagues, and they work hard work hard. But you know, unless you get hungry yourself the kid who this college education is going to set me up for life. That's why you see so many kids, you know, the guys who make it come from backgrounds that aren't aren't ideal so to speak, but we I mean, you were just talking to Polly about like the recruiting at USF. And I mean virtually getting the death penalty in the program shut down and the Grateful Dead on yet. But the the the I got a pack of money on me. I was gonna get Mike is Christmas bonus. And he's not here. Couple off. He wouldn't know what he's missing. No. No. No. Yeah. I'm trying to help you out Gary. No, no, I'm I'm I you know, I came in. You gotta hide your from your wife would he give Larry wouldn't pay his fantasy football fee. Hiding it from his wife. Larry wants that announced when he sick. Okay. Well, that is true. I'm not I'm not abreast of that situation. I know Larry get it back to get it back to him to give it to him when he gets here down the road, take carrier. But no, I it's I still don't know why they would say, hey, are they gonna fill this place on Monday night. I mean, I it's a great a it's Alabama. I saw the secondary market. They're giving away. Tickets now aren't well. When I looked at when I looked at stubhub four hundred and seventy five bucks to sit in the upper deck for the national chains to take another look are there cheap. Now, I can't get rid of him. Again, this is as of a couple of days ago. So they started releasing a bunch of what they do is. They give all the sponsors to handle way. And what you just don't wanna go, right? You check on there. But I don't think there Brian throwing four seventy five to sit on on the roof. And no for seventy rather have Cuyler Murray and it without a better draw. This is a tough. Go ahead, Brian. Well, the cheapest ticket on stubhub right now shows one hundred sixty nine dollars upper corner. Wow. You say one hundred sixty nine. That's when I got when I was checking in on my my stub hub. I was going to buy about twenty grand scalpels. Backing off now. Hey, it's great to have it as a as a fan. Those are the two games. I watched right? Yeah. Little high state yesterday. But there are too many ballgames crazy. We'll and it's like like you said the sun bowl like Stanford fans wanna travel or how are you feeling the stadiums anywhere? Listen to me, and I'll say why I've been doing this. It sounds like a joke. You go to Stanford urine alum, you're pretty smart guy. You do not want to spend New Year's in El Paso. Yes. Yes. What Stanford eight oh. Aka if you're a Stanford alumni, and you go. This sounds fun. Let's go to El Paso. Ballgame get canceled because the lightning you see that one. Yeah. I know they played a couple that was in Dallas. Yeah. Seven nothing. And they said we'll give everybody the tickets next year. They want to come to schools next year. Listen, I understand. That's all ESPN all those bowl games would go away. If he SPN just woke up one day and said, let's just re-run pardon the interruption for nine you know, what I mean? That would be that would be the end of it. It's ready. We're gonna have a good time this morning. We'll come back. You can hang as long as you want. You know, I'm driving in. I got the word that Larry was going to be off today. And then I said, it'd be great to have Copeland on. So I flip on the radio and you're right in the middle of pancakes. Go maybe it wouldn't be such a good idea. Telling you talking about your pancakes. I was ready for him. Then he asked me to stay jelly wherever the hell. You. I was going to mows up in north. Nobody. Anyway, talk. I wanna I wanna get when you've been off for a couple of weeks the giants. I did. I miss anything. No, no, no era. Holland might be a read. That's all. That's the big news.
