"pitcairn" Discussed on Airplane Geeks Podcast
"I don't know how many of us in the public can authoritatively comment on the safety related aspects. The only thing I could say is that airplanes have to be able to be evacuated in 90 seconds. Yeah, what? A third of the exits blocked or is it half the exits blocked or something like that? So many years ago, there were some actual tests, some actual simulations run, where they got a bunch of college students and otherwise healthy people who, I don't know, maybe they paid him 25 bucks ahead. I don't know what it was, but in any event. And that data has been used year after year after year to indicate that more modern aircraft when they come along can meet this 92nd rule, but the issue is that the people involved the test subjects are not representative of the flying public in terms of age, weight, physical disability, all of these other things. So I mean, that would be my comment here. But did you not, I mean, at least I thought was interesting in that story is they showed people swimming to get out, where they just dive over the top of the people that are already standing up and they kind of make their way to the exit and that that's considered perfectly normal. But again, what really struck me when I read this was now what in the world would make the FAA or the DOT want to know what the minimum seat with on a jet would be? Who would have the most the most to gain from squeezing the seats as tightly as possible, I thought, well, the airlines, but certainly perhaps the Boeing and the Airbus in the world that can say, look, we figured out, remember how it used to be 6 abreast. Now we figured out how to do four and three. So we can squeeze you in, and you only have to sit a little sideways for about half the trip, and then you can move the other. I don't know, but think about it. Why would the FAA start asking, I mean, how much smaller could you make the seats? Yeah. Well, Congress directed them to ask the question or investigate it. Sure. And what do you think got the Congress stirred up, perhaps some lobbyists for one side or another? I'm sorry. I'm sounding a bit cynical. Yeah, you are sounding a bit serious. I used to work for FAA, so what can I tell you? Yeah, yeah. I just think that they made me that way. They did. I don't know. I just think in real world in a real world situation, I would like to see data that supports a 92nd evacuation because I don't know if it's possible. Yeah, with representative real world. I mean, large people, small people, tall people, short people, kids, of a representative age. They never talk about at least I don't think I've ever seen them talk about, you know, dragging 6 year olds down the aisle to try to get out in an emergency. Now, maybe they did. One of the people that know more about aircraft certification might be able to drop us a line and say, absolutely, they did that. I just have never heard about it, but since you brought it up, I would be curious about that too. All right, what's up with the geeks? Rob, anything from you this week, nothing. Rob shaking his head? I ain't doing nothing because I still can't fly. I don't get I haven't gotten the all clear yet for the docs and I think it'll be four or 5 months since I've been able to fly and Maria you can understand that it's killing me because I've been flying a couple of years more than you, but I'm about George's age. And you know, it's terrible. So I hate it, but I still go out to the airport every Friday and have lunch with my friends and watch the airplane take off and land. Good for you. Hamburger. Yeah. If you go to the airport in Sedona, Arizona, they have it on the menu. A $100 hamburger. David, how about you? Anything exciting? Well, actually, a project that I'm working on actually Maria would be appreciative of. I'm actually redesigning our whirly girls exhibit and one of the one of the people I'm featuring in our early years exhibit actually is gene tinsley. Oh really? Gene has a historic first. She was the first woman to ever fly a tilt rotor aircraft. A tilde. Yeah, she flew the XV 15. So I've been slowly, as I've been going through graduate classes, working on our whirly girl project to develop that at the museum. So it's cool. It's definitely growing. I mean, we've basically had a very small display, and I'm trying to bring some more diversity to the museum. So we're going to have a much larger whirly bird and a whirly girl, which is a girl. Yeah, the world of girl association is basically the 99s for women who are helicopter pilots. The first one was Hannah Reich, who flew the FA 61 in the 30s and was the world's first woman's helicopter pilot in the FA 61 technically, was the world's first helicopter. So women have been in helicopter aviation a lot longer than they've actually been in normal general aviation. And also because of our location, it's also significant that we have Amelia who took off and was the first woman to fly a rotorcraft, but flew a pitcairn autogyro around the corner. The willow grove airfield, which was pitcairn field, which eventually became home to the will grove air force reserve facility which by father was base civil engineers. So I have a sort of a connection to that. So that's what I've been working on at the museum slowly but surely. That's exciting. Yeah,
"pitcairn" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Up in this half hour. We're going to check in with Rick pitcairn. He's the CIO at pitcairn, get his thoughts on these markets plus. Ben emmons, no stranger to this show. He's a managing director and global macro strategist at medley global advisers he penned some really, really good economics and strategy notes. We can get his thoughts on what we heard from the fed, what we saw in the GD print and what do we do with these markets? First, let's go to Greg Jarrett, get a Bloomberg business flash. Great. Well, thank you. Stocks are moving into the red, erasing some of these spectacular post fed rally following the initial reading on second quarter gross domestic product, which was not such happy news. The S&P 500 is down 6 tenths of a percent down 26, the Dow is down a half percent down a 178 in the NASDAQ is down 1.1% down a 137. The ten year is up one and two 30 seconds, the yield 2.65%. West Texas intermediate crude has moved into the reds now down three quarters of percent in 96 48 a barrel while comics goes up 1.7% of 1766 90 ounce. The dollar yen one 34 60. The Euro, a dollar O one 55 in the British found the dollar 21 16. Mortgage rates in the U.S. dropped for the first time in three weeks, the average for a 30 year slipped to 5.3% from 5.5%, 5.54% last week. That is a Bloomberg business flash. Bloomberg markets continues now Katie greifeld of Columbia University and Paul Sweeney. Very good. All right, we appreciate that, Greg Jarrett. Lots of cross currency in these markets here. And again, we should just see it in the trading big, big moves up yesterday and it's Greg was just reporting giving some of that back today. It kind of reflects some of the uncertainty as the market tries to discount all these data points from the fed yesterday to earnings to the data eco data. We're getting today in terms of GDP. Let's check in with the professional who does this for a living Rick pitcairn. CIO of pitcairn joins us, Rick, what's your takeaway from the earnings from the fed yesterday from the GDP? How was your outlook changed if at all? Well, hot Paul, how are you and nice to be here today. It's an incredibly dynamic time for the markets. And that was underscored by pal statements yesterday. Since November, they've placed in flight inflation fighting and inflation fighting at the expense of all other economic issues at the forefront of their rhetoric and their actions. And yesterday, he began to open the door in the second half of the speech to a possible pause of possible pivot, the markets reacted super positively as we saw. I think our view is that it's still a time for more caution than aggression because there's a lot of dynamics as you mentioned going through this market. And I don't think we have all the answers yet. I think things are still subject to change. And I'm not sure if we're all the way through the tough times even as strong as yesterday was. And Rick, let's talk about that more caution than aggression. How does that filter down into how you structure a portfolio? Where do you see opportunity where you avoiding? Well, I'm lucky. I've worked with high net worth individuals and high net worth families for my whole career. They tend to have a longer term view, they're all operating in the land of taxes, so tax drag is important. So a bit care and portfolio will be a more diverse portfolio that will be in a more strategic and tactical in the way that it's laid out. And it will rely on a series of managers underneath that. And we see those managers pivoting right now to a little bit different kind of a time. Two years ago, long duration assets, stocks that were growing revenue regardless of earnings. We're really highly valued. I think in a land where liquidity is tighter, where the fed will be tighter rather than looser. You have to go to a different kind of a playbook and we've seen some different kinds of asset classes that we're working in 2016, 2017, 2018, working very well right now, whether that's a small value and equity land commodities, certain kinds of hedge funds. So we're certainly emphasizing those in our portfolios. Rick, we're kind of, I would say kind of right in the middle of this earnings season, a lot of big tech numbers coming out this week while the Apple and Amazon after the close, any takeaways so far for you during kind of what you've seen, what you've heard from management. We were struck going into this session this earnings season because we had a 8.9% forecasted year over year earnings growth. And with the employment situation we have very strong employment market and very strong earnings growth. It's hard to contemplate a really tough recession when you have those two cornerstones on the positive side. So the conventional wisdom was, well, that 8.9 can't hold. We're going to go into recession area environment and that number is going to get creamed. And I think that number will come in based on the environment we have. But I think this earnings season probably has been better than the whispers in terms of forward guidance. The Honeywell number this morning, he said, regardless of the slowing and the broader economy, our business lines have shown dynamic growth in the first 6 months and they're going to continue to show that growth throughout the rest of the year. That wasn't what the whisper had in mind in late June. They thought that forward guidance would be a little bit worse, I think that's been another reason we've had a stronger bounce back July in the speculative sectors. And that bounce back, though, that we've seen in the speculative sectors, as you mentioned, I mean, over the past month, it's actually been a very robust rally. I guess what's your conviction there? Because I mean, you look at volume, you look at volatility, just falling off a cliff, usually that means pretty low conviction, wondering if that's the case on your end as well. Well, our technical research doesn't really show that even though it's an impressive rally on price, particularly in the NASDAQ, the internals are great. They aren't just screaming like they did in, say, April of 2009, this is a big time buy here. There's a ton of internal momentum. It's a little more tepid than that. I would just tell investors, we feel I think a little bit in our personal lives like COVID is over. Like we can go to the restaurant. We can get on the airplane. We can travel. We can do those things, but from a macroeconomic perspective, the scale of the various impacts that COVID had on our economy, whether it was that massive liquidity impulse in 2020 that caused a great rally. Now we're going to pull that back, I would be cautious to flash the all green light here. I think patients 8 patients is always a good thing. Investment world. And even in light of the last three weeks, which is thankfully been strong for markets. I'd still tighten my seat belt and keep an eye out for the changing data because I think it's going to continue to change. All right, Rick, good stuff there. We appreciate getting your thoughts Rick pick Karen. He's a CIO at pitcairn, been managing money for a long time getting his perspective here. And I think Katie, just looking by the last 24 hours of trading here, this market is trying to discount a lot, including today's GDP print and as Rick was suggesting, you know, still a tremendous amount of uncertainty as a market tries to parse through this data. And even with all that uncertainty, you look at the vix right now, it's about a 23 just grinding and grinding lower. Definitely feels unintuitive at this moment. It does. Yeah, that's a good point. You would expect to see the vix moving higher than certainly a data point that Tom Keene pays close attention to for a good reason. Right now let's head down to Washington D.C. world and national news
"pitcairn" Discussed on After The Fact
"Opportunity to catch fish. The ability to maintain cultural heritage is amplified by protecting that ocean environment. And in the long term as well, you know, if an MPA is implemented, you could have a boost of the economy through the blue economy and also actual job creation ownership of this. And pitcairn, there's an NPA officer who works there managing the protected area who's a local person. There are local people who contribute to whale watching, you know, humpback whales are returning and carving there and all the local community contribute to counting those whales. The fact there's an MPA has brought inward investment in a new science center is now being built to try and enhance collaboration with scientists from around the world. Dialog is crucial to ensure that the benefits are significant as possible. How are MPA's formed with local communities? How do you work with them? Tristan da Cunha is an island in the middle of the Atlantic, which claims to be the most isolated island community on the planet. Being so isolated, the community was anxious to ensure that even if they enhance protections, they still have the ability to extract from the ocean in order to sustain their economy, their livelihoods. So here you have a real process of exploring which areas should be protected. So scientists will be commissioned to map where the key habitats are, where the key species are moving, how climate change might impact these over time. And then to really evaluate the economics of the fisheries, what works, what the right balance might be. And in the end, you know, there's a lobster fishery which brings in 80% of the Tristan da Cunha economy. So this is shielded from enhanced protections. This fishery is maintained. And what they called the marine protection zone was designated in their waters. A huge, fully protected area, which protects kind of migratory roots of tuna and all sorts of really exciting species. It was community led it was designed the way that the community wanted it to be. The discussion came in also, if anything ever happened to our lobster fishery, how do we then cover ourselves economically? That's when, you know, outside donors, philanthropy, NGOs, get creative and a endowment fund was actually set up. So the interest on that is returned to the community in perpetuity to pay for conservation projects, management of the marine environment. And it all kind of works together like that. How do you start bringing all of these varied interests together? You mentioned, you know, if there's nothing going on somewhere, it's easy to protect a big place, but in more and more of the ocean, you know, commercial fishing is an enormous industry, heavily subsidized by many governments. How do you start reducing that changing behaviors and bringing these disparate interests together? I guess, is science led, so you want to undertake as much research as you possibly can. What is the biodiversity? Where does it live? Where does it move throughout the year? What are the pressures which it is under? How is the local economy depend on the ocean and how would different levels of protection and designs of MPA's impacts that? You have to make sure that all these questions are being considered. From the outset, but at all times engaging as much as possible with the core groups. And as I said, it has to be local lead. If there's not local ownership, then the ability of these protections to withstand over time, a seriously diminished. Local people have to be fully on side to point the implementation of these areas. And these have typically been areas in very isolated parts of the ocean, which are rich in biodiversity, which really have little existing commercial activity. And what that means is that these areas really need to be protected, but also that it's feasible to achieve that protection. How does that actually happen? Who determines where an MPA goes? Is it in some cases the governments, but if you're beyond an economic zone, is there something for the great seas that can also weigh in and help us figure all these things out? What are the authorities that determine these places? So you've got sepsis, you've got indigenous and local peoples, you've got governments. What happens beyond these areas of national jurisdiction? Two thirds of the ocean is in the high seas. Areas beyond which individual countries have jurisdiction. And at the moment there's an ongoing process to try a new international treaty to manage and protect the high seas, the high seas implementing agreement at the UN. And hopefully this will allow for the process basically for marine protected areas to be designated in the global commons in these shared areas. I hope a listener sort of visualize what these might look like on a map. A range of protected areas are there like little tubes that connect them so that at least there's some conduit for the fish course. The fish don't know where the tubes are. So how are they going to know where to get from place to place and be safe? How does a network like that work? Well, it's a good example where we're working now actually for puberty, which is the eastern tropical Pacific that region is Ecuador, which includes Galapagos. You've got, this is all the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia. And all these four countries have their own marine protected areas, designated. So pockets of the islands in their ocean. At the climate cop in Glasgow, which just happened at the end of last year. The leaders of the four countries came together and announced their intention to have what they called the swim way, which would actually interconnect all these four marine protected areas to ensure that the megafauna, the turtles, the sharks, the whales moving in between each. Are actually protected. But what does that mean? And she said, what is a kind of interconnected regional approach? Well, it might include biological corridors, so they have actually mapped where species move throughout the year. And you could think, okay, here's a kind of a highway basically where all these awesome species are moving from point a to point B so let's try work with fisheries operating in these waters to ensure there isn't bycatch. You have to have this whole ocean holistic approach for it to work. You really want a regional governance system, each country speaking to each other, sharing information. There's got to be the long-term sustainable financing for which we discussed about to really support this regional approach. And we haven't even gotten into the enforcement side of this. Like you can create it, but how do you make sure people abide by it? Well, this was a great part of the pitcairn story. So to get to pick here and it takes four days so it takes, I think, longer to get there than it does to get to the moon. From the UK, you go via Tahiti, and then you get a flight to a place called manga raver, in French Polynesia, and then you take a boat for two and a half days to get to pitcairn. It's so isolated, but the community, as I said, one is to protect their ocean. They wanted to fully protect the vast majority, but have local artisanal fishing around their island so they could sustain themselves. Around 2014, we support the community to submit a proposal to do this to the UK government. And in 2015, the government said, okay, well, we'd like to support this, but it's so isolated. We could designate national park, but how do we know that poachers are not going to come in and fish illegally? So pew actually partnered with a group in the UK. It was the capability to monitor these huge isolated areas of the ocean from space using satellites. They'll be able to see if vessels are hiding or potentially efficient illegally within pitkin's waters and report that to the UK government who can then follow up. In other areas like Palau, there's a patrol vessel. So if from space you spot potentially nefarious activity, the patrol vessel can be sent to check it out. So it is possible to do this now in large, highly isolated areas. And we kind of proved the concept that pitcairn and that's now been rolled out across a lot of other marine protected areas. But that's the cost element as well, of course. You know, there's a cost to that and how we finance that in the long term is something which is often at the forefront of our minds. I just want to sort of end with asking, what's your hope, but what's your outlook for these efforts? Where will the ocean be in the next decade or so? The pieces are in place to really deliver a protected and replenished ocean. We just need to deliver it and we need the policies to be implemented and we need the political will. We spoke about a lot of the things that we need to get to where we want to be. All these things could happen. They could be delivered. We know what needs to happen. We just need to go ahead and have the confidence and assurance really to do it. And I'm optimistic that we can get there in the end. We expect to hear more about that optimism in our next episode. The last in our series on ocean people planet when we look at the new younger generation of ocean conservationists and what they're doing to protect the seas around us. As always, you can find more information on this series, including previous episodes, articles, and videos at pew trust dot org slash ocean people planet.

"pitcairn" Discussed on Places I Remember with Lea Lane
"Black sea and again now it's very difficult so you know one of the one of the things i'm thinking when i'm thinking of these cruises i've been all over on cruises and sometimes you wanna take advantage and do it because you can't do it later and when i say these places many of them right now are unable to get there very easily. So it's a wonderful way to see the world. The name of the podcast is places. I remember so what are some of the memorable things you can remember about your cruises. We'll we'll both talk about that. You know one of the first cruisers. That i went on puerto rico. Fact was the one that i i'd mentioned earlier. One of the memories from that one. That really sticks is we went to guadeloupe guadalupe and there was this hike to this waterfall. And i had never actually been to a again. Many years ago. Never really seen a real tropical waterfall for hiking to this thing and just the energy of standing underneath a waterfall in the you know in this tropical jungle pool that just i really remember the feeling of that because you know you put it into words and just well. Yes you know. It's water falling off a cliff but it just the emotions that that evokes just still stick with me to this day after so much time. Yes sometimes beautiful moment sticks with you for your whole life as as you mentioned i think cruises take take you to some of these places where you can find these moments. I wrote down a list of some of the more interesting places that i've been. I've been doing this a long time and so many times. Accrues is what. I remember the most because we go to places i as i said before. You can't get to otherwise. I took a cruise from santiago chile to easter island which is far out in the ocean in the pacific on. It's on the way to bore a bore and tahiti. That was an unusual crews. It was a month we went to a place called pitcairn island. Where the relatives of fletcher christian from the mutiny. On the bounty still live there. Only about forty of the people they came on board are cruise ship selling t shirts and so forth. They were very excited to see the cruise ship. There isn't that much going on in the middle of the south pacific. That was very memorable. We met most of the people from pitcairn island. It's an unusual place. Now it's a it's like a rock in the middle of the ocean but it was interesting and then there was another month long cruise. I took few years ago from dubai to capetown fabulous itinerary. Where we went to the seychelles. The maldives madagascar ended up in capetown. But the bad part was we had to go through the pirates zone for two weeks half of the much of the time where we had to turn our lights off at night ship we were on. It was an oceanic ship that had been Actually hit by pirates in two thousand and eight so so it wasn't something that we were just joking about. We had we had all kinds of drills and so forth but we got through and it was kind of exciting. I don't i don't recommend this for everyone but the itinerary so fabulous that you had to go through this zone to get there. There was no choice. So you know i. A lot of people didn't want to do it. They cancelled when they when they thought about it. But some people have different risk factor and then others so you know there are many many wonderful places in the world..

"Certain detox protocols support the liver. Green foods clara spy. Lena fresh foods like you did with your animal and treat the animal with. I feel energy medicines to treat them on a deep level to reduce the susceptibility to not just the current issue but future chronic issues as well. I didn't wanna make one point on that on that ma the shedding of the viral vaccines and. This is something i really. Don't think a lot of my colleagues recognize. Is that even something like a modified live kennel cough vaccine which is given up the nose kennel cough vaccines close relative to human pertussis or whooping cough and i've had a couple of human clients with chronic immune diseases on medications and that kind of thing developed symptoms of what looked like whooping cough like illness and that came from the animal shedding from the nose into the animals around them. I wanted to bring that up. That's that's fascinating and terrifying. That's a whole other discussion. Yes anyway so. I treat the whole patient. I prevent them from using more drugs and pesticides and further. Vaccinations if i can avoid them again. Rabies in some states unfortunately is required by law and some states allow the exemptions and some don't but hopefully they're not going to take away those loopholes for us and the vet profession. Right right we you first of all how many do you know how many veterinarians like you there are in this country. Is this a growing. It's growing field. Yes it is. You and i were talking backstage back in the nineties. It was a couple of hundred now. there's thousands of veterinarians that are now looking outside the box. What i found though. Odell frustratingly is when i see a lot of young veterinarians. They must be amping up in their training. They're graduating a lot of them. Closed minded so we really have to get to them early and coming up classes. Listen i'll just show them. The data showed them the research from the prestigious immunologists in my profession. And they'll just look at it and go right on doing what they're doing and then animals are suffering. That's very very sad for me. Breaks my heart amongst your colleagues. They're looking at this. You must i mean you see enough numbers and you start. Seeing the success of taking these products out of the animals lives with future. What what has to happen. Well i think we have to as a group like you're doing here on this program. Just come together as pet owners holistic veterinarians and really present an alternative lifestyle and lead by example. Sometimes the more you try and fight the other side like you've said on other programs that doesn't get it done. We just have to try and preach for our animals or offer less toxic alternatives in terms of both preventing disease as well as treating illness. And i still use western medicine. It has its place in my practice. But if the if the more gentle natural techniques dietary therapies if energy medicines that put the body back into balance don't work then. I know i have my training from my medical school training to to fall back on. And i think that's just what it is just keeping breaching and enlightening educating and informing. Do you still do surgeries. There's like that. I was never much of a surgeon but no i i don't do i don't. I'm not in private practice anymore. Gave them my last gig this past year and now i'm basically a holistic practitioner who who treats patients in south florida and people call me by phone and skype and i watch and that kind of thing so if we want more information where someone wants to find a holistic practitioner. Is there any sort of resource available. Absolutely my two best resources would be for people who are interested in homeopathy which is my passion. I would certainly go to the av h. website. That's the academy of veterinary homeopathy. And then there's the pitcairn institute of homeopathy the v. h. dot org website. There's also a huge organization that encompasses herbs and homeopathy. Homeopathy and other modalities chiropractic vetik. And that's called. The ah via may the american holistic veterinary medical association. And it was on my favorite. If you wanna look into what you're doing what's your website. My website is my name. Dr dim spelled out but dr spelled out. Do cto r. d. y. Ym dot com awesome dim. Just great knowing. You're out there that there are people out of the care. Come in the same conclusions and i. I hope you have the opportunity to speak out more.

Him is very great intensified by wool. But also i saint antoine pain a wonderful example of this this desire to rein in the monocled the ruler. It's not just coming from the finances. The parliament saw the aristocracy judy gray. It's being voiced from below one of tom pains. Most recurrent arguments is that european. Monarchs or congenital wool mangas. And it's the people pay the price and the that's why he thinks festival shelters terribly important. He's very big on charges and for him. The cultic charters morphs relentlessly into a commitment to a written constitution. And he's very clear that if the constitution is not written it has no real existence. You must put down in words. On pap- three touches base with the most familiar pulse of the political history of this period. The american constitution the french revolution. So but it's a global history. I'm did for people who haven't read the book or hip again. Read the book. It goes from pitcairn to hawaii acoustic to mexico to japan. As he said asia africa south america variants on this theme are often global woes or close to being able with some of them and the people interact almost on a global scale. You start in corsica and interesting for two reasons. First of all because it's unusual place to start. And secondly because costa did produce a very important person in this story napoleon to tell about cool sokaia white cousquer mattis fuel story well small places on indeed small islands rate cuss through my story. And i think that's partly because smallness of course we tend to assume that means in significance but smallness could also make four experiment which would be much harder in a huge well established quality. And i wanted to start in corsica because you have the soldier hero. Pascal poli determined into fray corsica from genoa on sunday. And he establishes himself as rebel leader in seventeen fifty five and one of the amazing things he does is draft a written constitution based on his earlier plans and his manuscript hasn't survived because corsica is so under developed in the seventeenth fifties note printing engines. He can't even get any new heba so in order to rightists constitutions he has to scrape inc words of old letters and right is draft constitution. All this which is partly why we don't have the original version but it's it's very interesting constitution which makes this link explicit but tweed male commitments to fighting to defend the country and political rights. Again only full man and as a result of pallets initiative you do get very briefly in corsica before the french move in and occupy the most democratic society at least in siri in the eighteenth century world being created. So that's one of my island sites pitcairn which you mention is another of them differ part of the world south specific tiny place where hms bounties mutineers finally end up and in eighteen. Thirty eight the pitcairners acquire a constitution a written constitution which is the first in the world to give women voting rights for the executive on the same terms as men again these stray tiny places but really important in the story. It's not just a story about democracy. Is it because there's a. This is almost parallel story over this period. Which is the birth of modern democracy in some of these institutions and the tv just mentioned are radically democratic but they aren't all radically democratic. When i was reading your book i feel that the theme was inclusively. The seemed to be to be counted. This isn't included in some sense and particularly across religious divides or provides sometimes that king with democratic rights participatory rights. But sometimes it didn't so. How'd you understand that particular. Through the nineteenth century. The relationship between desire of the people have for written constitution. Establishing the rules of the game and the growth of democracy. One of the things. I wanted to stop. This was the historically an practice. These instruments could do very different sinks and to turn them into teleology of the widening reach of democracy and so forth misses a load of what they did in practice. Constitutions for example often used to determine or to claim geographical boundaries by emerging states. This is constantly happening in south america and very often people sort of see all these constitutions one after another in the same state in places like argentina in the nineteenth century and sometimes say we'll clears constitutions. Went very important because you they lost a long. But it depends what you think to do if these different constitutions are about constantly changing territorial boundaries or making new claims all extending rights to new people or not then a plurality of constitutions does not mean that ineffective it means said doing rather different sinks but yes constitutions can also be used to withdrawal rights or deliberately to exclude from rights and state constitutions in the united states constitution's in nineteenth century australia. You can see them becoming more strong. On white male democracy yes but explicitly at the same time being about exclusion saying no that land does not belong to mexicans. It belongs to us. Not native americans not going to pay taxes but death will of coast Have political rights which means that we could take that land. They have no redress oviously. Women will not have political rights it and sometimes it said well. This didn't really matter because after all women have had rights very much earlier but once you have something put down. in a mass-produce text in was in print. It becomes harder to change the constituencies that these instruments are being used to exclude an marginalized. This is as much apart off the story. As the spread of democracy. He like talking. Politics is brought to you in partnership with the london review of books until for that reason. It's also story about by empire and this is a great age of imperial expansion so to go back to that other corsican napoleon bonaparte so you have a section about napoleon a deeply ambivalent figuring this story both a spreader of constitutions establish a of constitutional rules unknowns and also in his way a tolerant up and we shouldn't be surprised by that. I'm again think it's an accident that he comes from cosa cut he about pilot. Who was desperate to impress. When he was a young man will make e sunniness about powerless.

They were naive and poorly educated and they shrugged off the salt of the girls and couldn't understand why the police were making such a big deal out of something that was so ordinary. One of the pitcairners confessed to asking an eleven year old if she was having sex with her eleven year old boyfriend. She said she wasn't and then the man asked her if she wanted to practice to help her get ready. The detective asked. Why would you even consider asking girl of that age. Something like that or offering. I don't know what to even call it. Maybe services his response was well on the island. Everyone's having sex by that age so the police officer then asked. Do you think it's okay to have sex with underage girls and their responses were. It seems like it's been that way down through the times. He realized what he was saying.

London set up a logistics office and they open their pocketbooks. They began chartering. Yachts shipping out supplies overseeing construction on the island. They put in the total cost of the trial at about fourteen million but many believe it was much more.

"Sadly what many believed to be an island paradise was rocked with allegations of sexual depravity. When several young local girls came forward with information about many of the men living on pitcairn island. This scandal rocked the small community then the world and revealed over a century of what could be described factually as deep rooted moral depravity. This is to us to travel to crime. And i'm your host sandy. Welcome aboard. I've got quite the case for you this week. It does involve the sexual abuse of children. So fats trigger for you. You may want to skip this week's episode a quick boat keeping no. It was brought to my attention last week that i should probably let new listeners know each week that my family and i do currently live in record on a small sailboat. That helps explain. Some of the i'd noises you might hear in the background. There are no complaints as it's a pretty peaceful noise. But it's there now and then and i can't edit it out without making the rest of the recording sound distorted this week. You won't hear waves in the background. Which is usually the most common sound. But if you listen closely you can hear the sound of shrimp eating algae from our boats hall. Maybe once they hear this case they'll lose their appetite. Pitcairn island is a beautiful huge rocky island protruding from the ocean. It's about halfway between new zealand and chile. it's one of the world's most remote inhabited areas in fact there's no airstrip no safe harbor to hold the boats and no regularly scheduled shipping services. Most visitors hit you left on a container vessel that passes nearby or they fly to the nearest island. Then hop on a boat for a thirty hour boat ride to pitcairn. In order to be allowed on the island you have to apply and be accepted but most of the requests are turned down. Maybe you're asking. Why in the world would someone choose to live here. Well let me tell you what i learned about the first inhabitants of the island and a little bit about its history. I feel it's crucial to this case. Pick your in the last holding of the british empire in the pacific ocean. It's a place that so remote and so unlikely to have inhabitants and frankly so lost in time it seems more like a dream that a reality. The place is real though and it's a tiny spa on a map out in the middle of the south pacific it's more than three thousand miles away from any continent. The island itself is not much bigger than new york's central park and surrounded completely by cliffs in ocean. This isolated salty piece of land was determined to be the perfect place for mutineers to hide after stealing a british navy ship in seventeen eighty nine. A sailing. Ship named hms bounty left the island of tahiti where sailors had spent the last six months for the captain and his crew had been six months of food. Fun and debauchery. The food was delicious and the scenery exquisite but in all reality but the sailors loved the most was the tahitian maidens the tahitians were very sexually open in fact when the hms bounty arrived in the bay to hetian women swam out naked to greet the men they were invited to shore to feast with the islanders and they introduced a man to a sexual culture.

And i'm like well. Why would i pay this one. H was far superior in that realm for spend. Btc's for holden building on their overnight. Asian up but thank you for that appreciate james. Yeah anything else. Thank you for holding it together. Real curious on your your free cities project. Okay that's kind of looking at the website. a little seems as with Senator overseas. I would say right so it's free private. Cities dot com free. Private cities dot com. The concept is is that to bring back the old city state and the idea that instead sort of modeled after a not a resort but a resort that you live at so not in the sense that there's pools everywhere and alcohol and gorgeous women or anything like that. Let's hope that we've got all those things but the really the ideas is that when you go to name resort james can you think of one. Oh i didn't do the resort atlanta's club med. Those a couple of club med club. Med and you When he show up there you never think about why should vote on. Who the ceo is you know like i gotta get those darn republicans out of office and club. Med and the democrats in or vice versa. You never think that at all. You think i'm gonna have. I'm gonna live my life here for a couple of weeks and it's going to be great and the idea is that you sign a contract when you come into the city when you become a citizen or even your coming in to do business or whatever it is there's different types of contracts for different things and you have rights that are spelled out. The social contract exists in free private cities as opposed to just changes whenever at the whims of politicians. We currently live in a world where they say you trade your freedoms for responsibilities and the government's protection and blah blah blah blah blah. That's the social contract right. And that is the social contract in sort of its basics. Clever signing well you didn't sign it but you kind of call it a contract none of those things that absolutely but the contract that it's not a contract when the other side can change their rules of conduct at a whim not tell you about them and i mean like for instance the best of my knowledge. This studio is rated over some Unlicensed money transmitting best to my knowledge. Nobody committed unlicensed money transmitting and we have legal opinions remember legal opinions because that's what the supreme court calls what it does. It says the majority opinion and the minority opinion rarely people are willing to break into your house and shoot you point guns at you and fly drones around over opinions. Let's just lay it out. In fact what is the the contract and operate in that manner. So that's the idea behind free private cities. We don't believe this possible in the united states. The land of the free is no longer and that we will acquire some land from some country that wishes to trade money for sovereignty and not entire sovereignty. sovereignty doesn't actually exist right. It's just a it's a term. So i think that the sovereignty is like china russia and the united states and maybe not russia and these are the the the things that are sovereign in the world and the rest of the countries are just kind of making their way but You know that was my question is you're not talking about trying to take over existing towns and make them better. It's more of a start over from scratch right. Well don't argue built so my problem with the free state project is that i do think they'll be successful. They will argue their way to more freedoms in one location. But it's going to take several lifetimes to get there and where you can buy a piece of property sign a contract with the country and begin building and then have something pretty feasible in five years and i think that that's a faster and easier and less controversial way to do things. There's certainly some controversy that That that surrounds the steph. There's organization called the study of economics. I would think that it would be so successful and productive for that country they would have a vested interest in maintaining your sovereign. So that's the hong kong model right like hong kong was significant for your than china and it became And as a result became very very wealthy. I would caution you. Freedom in and of itself is not useful so think about pitcairn island sits out in the. It's a rock. That's one mile by two miles out in the pacific ocean. There's forty two voters and you could and they're currently trying to get people to move there they'll give you a free plot of land to move there and you will right away figure out that you know not having too many people around gives you a great deal of freedom but what good is the freedom. If you don't have any commerce going on you have to be in proximity to people for it to matter in my opinion and i think that the experimentation in self-governance is important enough that it needs to occur. You can't buy hundred acres in the united states and say hey i'm just gonna go ahead and make my own place you can like a city can make more laws than the state and a state can make more laws in the federal government but none of them can take them away. Really now. i mean obviously colorado has legalized.

We're going to ask you about that. And i just been such a low priority for me but yeah we should try and do that. Yeah we absolutely need to get that done. So that i mean everybody else has got a market. Freetalklive dot com. We don't have the captain. Freetalklive dot captain kick ass or whatever. Free time too long. That'd be great. How about just kick ass any this so When i when i spent that i noticed that you guys talk about the fees. I've never had to deal with that before. And i i went to the btc. And i'm like well. Why would i pay this. B. c. h. Was far superior in that realm be for spending. Btc's for holden on but thank you for that appreciate it james. Yeah anything else. Thank you for holding it together. Just a real curious on your your free cities project. Okay of kind of looking at the website a little it seems as though it's Centered overseas. i would say right so it's free private. Cities dot com free. Private cities dot com. The concept is to bring back the old city state and the idea that instead of model it after a not like a resort but a resort that you live at so not in the sense that there's pools everywhere and alcohol and gorgeous women or anything like that. Let's hope that they we've got all those things but The really the ideas is that when you go to the neighbor resort james. Can you think of one. Oh i didn't do the resort. Atlantis club med. Those a couple of club med right. You got to club med. And you when you show up there. You never think about why i should vote on. Who the ceo is you know like i got those darn republicans out of office and club med and the democrats ahead or vice versa. You never think that at all. You think i'm gonna have to live my life here for a couple of weeks and it's going to be great and the idea is that you sign a contract when you come into the city when you become a citizen or even your coming in to do business or whatever it is different types of contracts for different things and you have rights. That are spelled out. The social contract exists in free private cities as opposed to just changes whenever at the whims of politicians. We currently live in a world where they say you trade your freedoms for responsibilities and the government's protection and blah blah blah blah. That's the social contract right. And that is the social contract in sort of its basics. You didn't sign it. But you kind of illegally colo contract none of those things that absolutely but the contract the contract when the other side can change their rules of conduct at a whim not tell you about them and i mean like for instance to the best of my knowledge. The studio is rated over. Some the unlicensed money transmitting best to my knowledge. Nobody committed unlicensed. Money transmitting and we have legal. Opinions remember legal opinions because that's what the supreme court calls what it does. It says the majority opinion in the minority opinion. Really people are willing to break into your house and shoot you point guns at you and fly drones around over opinions. Let's just lay it out. In fact what is the Contract and operate in that manner. So that's the idea behind free private cities. We don't believe this is possible in the united states. The land of the free is no longer and that we will acquire some land from some country that wishes to trade money for sovereignty and not entire sovereignties. Sovereignty doesn't actually exist right. It's just it's a term. So i think that the sovereignty is like china russia and the united states and maybe not russia and these are the those are the things that are sovereign in the world and the rest of the countries are just kind of making their way. But you know that was my question is you're not talking about trying to take over existing towns and make them better. It's more of a start over from scratch right well. Well argued built so my problem with the free state project is is that. I do think they'll be successful. They will argue their way to more freedoms in one location. But it's gonna take several lifetimes to get there and where you can buy a piece of property sign a contract with the country and begin building and then have something pretty feasible in five years and i think that that's a faster and easier and less controversial way to do. Things are certainly controversy that That that surrounds the stefo. There's an organization called the study of economics. I would think that it would be so successful and productive for that country they would have a vested interest in maintaining your sovereignty. So that's the hong kong model right like hong kong was significant for your than china and it became As a result became very very wealthy. I would caution you. Freedom in and of itself is not useful so think about pitcairn island. It's out in the. It's a rock. That's one mile by two miles out in the pacific ocean. There's forty two voters and you could and they're currently trying to get people to move there. They'll give you free.
