There was supposed to be a stunt double who got shot and falls and like it is falling on the concrete and crawling and blah. 'cause that's technically stunt. The stunt double shows up to set and he's wearing a different suit than i am and i think technically like you know they didn't know how they would.

Apple introduces iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max with 5G
"The legitimate benefits are as as carriage our brain five g to the streets and into homes. Let's jump back into the conversation already in progress. Let's talk about the impact of a five g. Iphone apple has the ability to spread pixie dust on any technology when they enter the arena with it. How important do you think five. G is to apple. And how important do you think. Apple is five g. It's great way to frame that question. Because i think it's five. G absolute needs apple to embrace this technology apple as you said has a way of turning nascent early. Technology things like payment like wireless charging into the must have feature of the year right. So everyone's anticipating. That apple is going to five g. That next big must have acknowledged. You never mind folks who think they have it already. They're they're apple is going to educate consumers on why they're gonna need this upgrade upgrade their phones as it's a huge deal And you know some statistics of said that if what's apple starts selling Automatically become the second largest iphone or five g vendor in the world behind. Wow way and keep in mind. Samsung has been doing this for about a year and a half. they've been selling five devices. The presence of apple getting to is so huge that almost automatically they become a major player in five. Jake do you think we have a problem out there. With the fact that five is arriving with a need for a new handset which isn't cheap and a need to ostensibly pay more for carriage widely by carrier a time when people are trending toward less expensive handsets. Like you just mentioned samsung. They have this new galaxy. S twenty f e fan edition. That is hundreds less than their previous flagship. New google devices have recently come out rather inexpensive. Lg you our favorite iphone. Right now i think is the iphone. Se if you read between the lines of seen at reviews and that is certainly not the flagship eleven pro. the markets tending toward more value priced. Phones is this an awkward time to ask folks to buy a new phone and pay more for service. That's certainly a difficult time to ask anyone. Spending one thousand dollars plus four new phone with that said there will be people who will spend that much money. Keep in mind. The phone is basically the most critical tool in your life. Right you this one thing. You basically can't let can't not let go of so either number of people that are willing to spend that much and we'll see what apple does in terms of pricing for last year with the the iphone eleven. They did actually bring the price down a little bit for the base model. There's rumors that it might go even lower this time so apple might serve. Take a cue from what's going on the world. An offer of a bit of a break but still have that five functionality.

Are we just going to have to get used to dealing with outbreaks?
"So one of the things that Australia has really relied on throughout the hall coronavirus pandemic sci-fi is lockdown as a way of getting a handle on what's happening and keeping cases to a minimum. We've seen that really happening in Victoria and a few days ago a special envoy from the World Health Organization was talking about how lockdowns shouldn't be the only sort of tool. That countries used to Cape a handle on the coronavirus and I think that some people in Victoria have sort of used those comments from the WHO as a reason to sort of say, we should be lifting Victoria's lockdown now but it's a bit more nuanced than that. Isn't it? This nuanced? We went into lockdown in March largely to stop the growing pandemic but also to allow the infrastructure for contracting testing to get into place, which is what the WHO, who say. There was an outbreak in Victoria now that I break in Victoria would have killed many many more people had they not to lockdown but in part the outbreak was due to a failure in contracting and testing at that time. So in many ways, they fulfilled whol criteria for lockdown, which is time to get your contact tracing and testing into shape, and in fact, through the second wave in. Victoria that's indeed what they've done some situation where Victoria New South. Wales are pretty XY Pixie in terms of unknown cases number of cases a day. Sorry Pixie. What the hell does that mean some kind of Scottish thing I grew up with meeting. You know roughly equal fair fair enough trying to get a new phrase into the Australian dictionary from Scotland. Anyway. Back to the point the point being. That, you said whereas in Victoria roughly equal and the argument is probably quite well made that there's not a lot of reason why you shouldn't have the restrictions roughly the same in both states the problem of Victoria is you don't WanNa let the break off suddenly because people will just start turning up on masters include a beach which means crowding into trams, etc, etc. so you've got up. Do fairly slowly and carefully, but the endpoint quite soon could be a similar situation to New South. Wales. But we've got to get used to and it's not a trivial phrase a new covid normal. We promised a few days ago that we were going to stop comparing new, south Wales and Victoria, but let's just do it one more time new south. Wales does seem to have like you say. Exceed Pixie level of similar levels virus to what we're seeing in Victoria or at least the confirmed cases that are coming through, and they don't have as many restrictions on them, and we do know as well that it's probably at least a year before we're going to have any kind of vaccine available to that sort of like what we're thinking of as being a trigger for going back to what we used to have as a normal life is what's happening in New South. Wales. Perhaps, a model for what Ustralia could look like over the next year. Well, I think West Australians queenslanders south. Australians would bridal a that because they've got almost nothing happening and they're saying, well, why should we have? Wills has belichick focused on new, south Wales and Victoria for the moment. But I think it is something that queenslanders and others need to be cognizant off is this something we should get used to what we're talking about here for people who don't live in New South Wales is an outbreak from GP clinic now, getting used to is different from getting complacent. So yes I think you gotta get used to the fact that there will be small outbreaks but what we should not do tolerate them and so they're. They're not to be tolerated and our behavior needs to change in the short to medium term which is. Continuing careful social distancing. I believe in new. South. Wales. It should be mandatory mask in public transport just as an extra layer of security. You don't seem to be going that way and really getting on top of outbreaks and people being prepared to get tested if symptoms are in areas where there are outbreaks and if we can do that, then we can cope with these outbreaks but we can't just say. Another outbreak. Let's move on. It's another outbreak. Oh, this could be the moment where this could be the hotel quarantine equivalent moment that we hadn't. In Victoria, whereas if we ignore it is going to get out of control. So get used to not really be able to deal with yes. But just quickly on that, we're talking about being able to be responsive to outbreaks but we see in Shepperton in regional Victoria, they had a the little outbreak happening there people have told to go on to get tested they've gone to go and get tested. They've done what's been asked but they haven't been. Able to access testing this huge queues, how are we going to be out of style up to these? Well, that's for health departments to sort out, but they've got to be ready for particularly in rural and regional areas because this is something that you just need one truck driver to have arrived in a place in spread it and we've already seen somebody hiding away in trying to get into Queensland you just need one person and to move into our networks and off. So everywhere it's got to be ready and you to be ready for scale up and a plan for scale up so. Somebody throws a switch and people start with doing and they set up to prop up clinics, and within a few hours you've got it all going and that's what people have got to plan for and the best thing that can happen is you never have to institute your emergency response, but your emergency response has got to be really Schmidt and if he wants to know. More about how we've tooled up for contact tracing, how good it is, they listen to yesterday's Khurana cast with Ryan McIntyre where we covered a lot of these issues and that chat with Rhino was so interesting and there was stuff in there that we couldn't fit into yesterday's show. So we thought we'd bring it back again in prerecorded form to answer a question from Ingrid. Where Ingrid's ask if a person who has the virus uses a toilet does the next person inhale the virus spray in the toilet is flushed with the lead up and is the virus in urine faeces? Yum. This is just the sort of question that croquettes listeners love energy with toilets. Let's have a listen to yesterday's comments by Rhino McIntyre, which weren't in the krona cast. So this is a bonus we're talking about. And toilets on aeroplanes. We do know that there is a risk with closed transport vehicles with its planes buses. There's been a number of outbreaks already described on airplanes on buses and other vehicles including A. A navy ship whether it was a very, very high tech right? the Theodore Roosevelt in the US. The risk isn't just from Aerosol, droplets spread I mean we know that the highest risk isn't people sitting closest to the infected person and that's been born out in previous studies with diseases like to book your license and Maizels. But the toilet is also respected. There was one study where they were known infected people on board everybody was wearing a mosque and one of the people who became infected took the mosque off in the toilet. So we know that flushing the toilet can create aerosolize -ation. Probably. Less. So on an airplane toilet because of the nature of those toilets that don't have water swilling around, but they still would be rissole generation from the flushing action. So, the hall toilet is probably highly contaminated. So even if you wash your hands afterwards, you could breathe in contaminated aerosols than when you come out even just touching the door handle would be a risk. So that's that's probably one of the real hot spots on an airplane. That was Professor Rhino McIntyre who is professor of global biosecurity at Curbing University of New South Wales

Self-Hosting Your Photo Gallery with Imagely
"Hey welcome back to another episode of this week in photo. I'm your host Frederik van Johnson in this show. It's all about image sharing galleries and wordpress. And I'm joined by Scott Widen. Let me make sure I don't butcher his name Kibbe wits. He's from the company that built this cool stuff. And we're GonNa talk about that stuff and a little bit deeper because I want to dive into the world of wordpress as it applies to photographers and Scott is a is an expert in all that stuff so welcome to the show man how you doing doing well. Thanks for having me no. I think it's the first time that you and I are chatting while I'm on while I'm wearing the image. -Ly brand usually. It's me as a photographer right when you were both at the time and stuff like that. So it's a little bit of a change of pace. I've always been at image immensely but now and now now it's center now. That's great man so you are. You're the chief community officer over there. What does that mean chief community officer? Yeah so I. It's kind of on the marketing side. I get to do things like this. Interact with other photographers with podcast. With youtubers with you know just do a lot of the interaction on social media and in person like I'm the one that goes to the conferences like photo plus expo and hanging out with people going out making photos and stuff like that so I to do stuff like that. I do the blogging. I have we have a podcast about wordpress four photographer so I hope that that kind of stuff right. So I'm I'm sort of the email marketing. It's kind of that. That guy on the guy who gets to your the thing I was hanging out with you. Get to be the face of the company. That's cool. Well let's talk about that so I have the tease. I talked a little bit about wordpress and galleries and all that stuff. So one of the reasons why you and I are having this interviews and you guys who you're about to or you have already depending on where you watch. This rolled out the ability for photographers to kind of in a way replicate what some other players in the cloud. Image storage space. You're doing like smug Mug and Pixie set excetera in terms of building galleries and assigning priceless to those galleries and allowing customers to come in and purchase from either a password or unpasteurized protected area. Which what you told me before. We even started that up until just now has not been possible. Take me through that. Because I'm one of those people I use Mug Mug. I still have my Pixie set account as well and some others And I'm a wordpress user. This week in photo is run on wordpress. Obviously be nice to have the power to have that in house to me. GimMe Gimme the gist of what you guys built. Yes so as you said Thirty thirty five percent of the Internet runs on wordpress. So thirty five percent of photographers are using wordpress. And many of them are using wordpress alongside something like smug monk and it's all good and well if that's what you want but for photographers. Who Want to do everything in one platform that they control? That is a wordpress site. You now have the solution to not only sell in and sell prints and digital downloads. But the prince you have the option to automatically had this refilled by a print lap and the first pre lab we integrated with is White House custom color. Nice and more will be on the way of course but for now. That's that's the only one that's there and the cool part is that yes next Gen gallery built on is a Free Plug. It has about a million active users. It's one of the most popular press ins ever. Definitely the most popular alary plugging is the fastest gallery plug in and it's more than just your typical gallery. Plugin display your photos. It has a full gallery management system in it and that system kind of gives you this it will. It definitely gives you the separation of galleries and not. Everything's in one media library folder. It's all separated and it allows you to fine-tune everything to put in different image tags. Which will import your exit data. So you'll have any keywords. What become tex which means you can create galleries based on tags? If you want we have You know titles and descriptions and things like that and when you the this gallery that you've created and you want to attach a priceless it so you create a price list as some prince from the lab. Some print options and we by default automatically pick the most popular prince from the lab. And then you can add more. You can even do at all if you want to destroy everything once and and that's your price list. If you want to add digital download you can do that and you attach that priceless to the gallery and you once you sell you sell your Princeton. You don't think about the part of come mattress. You don't have to think about The the the the printing the the the editing that comes after that 'cause you know you don't have to worry about replacing inks all that fun stuff on that. So you know like I said before having having been in being a user of these cloud based services the in this is a completely appropriate question especially for someone who's intimate with wordpress and and image making and how stuff goes but the word press. Yeah it's it's almost the defacto standard on the web for for many many many sites out there myself my my sites included but the double edged sword of wordpress is giants got his amazing robust community. Anything that you can imagine you can build and or configured to do but in my opinion or in my experience that's also the Achilles heel of wordpress because there's always updates and plug in conflicts and you know okay you. You're not really bill. If for me it feels like you're not really building on a on a stable foundation. You're building on a foundation that can reconfigures itself every now and then you gotTa make sure everything that's on top of it is good to go. How does how do you guys mitigate that with next Gen and Gal next-gen Gallery and the other services you offer so that if I do put my mission critical business and galleries up there and I have a bride? That's coming in that. Wants to see and by prince she's going to be able to see those and give me money so. I just what you said that that there's sort of this Achilles heel I like to say that We're presses amazing because it can literally do anything but it's also a sometimes a pain the butt because it can literally do anything from so so yes there can be conflicts with different plug ins. Yes you have to worry about. Updates at image league on top of potential complex all the time we get a lot of people coming in that might have a bug here and there and we have a team that troubleshoot said and and can handle those and we have a development team that is fast and we will address any conflicts or bugs that come up that are that need immediate attention if you're having if we're having a conflict with a plugin like you which has happened in the past then that's a plugin that is popular enough. We have to address it. We know that plug in is installed in pretty much every photographers website. We have to fix it. So but if it's if it's a conflict with the plug and then might have a hundred users total well that's not a priority because unfortunately there's not many people using a small amount of people. Yeah yeah so we have to go with with what is impacting the majority
Gothamista's Rene Chow Spills the Secrets of Her At-Home Skincare Routine
"So rene were used to seeing your lovely face on a youtube serene and but you're here live in person right now and. I can attest that you're just as dewey bouncing in person skin goals. Everybody so really were here because you need to spill all of your secrets so you know we looked at your youtube and we discovered that your routine videos are just everything. People are obsessed so you have a morning skin care routine you have retinal routine video facial oils routine. What's your first step in? You're getting unready. Already routine for step is an oil cleanser or an oil based cleanser but it has to modify. I don't like the ones that don't emulsified. They kind of leave some sort of an oily residue on the skin. And so what is the most of I mean exactly? Most fi means when you add water earns Milky. Okay so usually this is a step that you use on dry skin And then you add a bit of water it turns Milky and the mckiness allows it to completely rinse off clean And is that in the day or at night or both. I do this at night. Double cleanse at night sleep during the day. I don't use a cleanser. Just use water okay. So we're GONNA start with the nighttime routine the getting unready With Rene so number one stop. We now know oil-based cleanser that emulsifiers The best in my opinion and this isn't an expensive luxury product. But in my opinion it's just my favorite. It's it's the best just feels. It's D. H. C. Cleansing deep cleansing oil. Okay this was the first oil I used after the Shura Yup You know they were the. Oh Gee yes. And it's just the texture of it is so thick and lush and comforting out. It just takes everything just melts. Are I love this one too? I talked about this in our skin in our cleanser so carleen and we can attest. She's brought all of the products here by the way we're looking at them right now. We're doing like a show and tell and I always wondered about this main ingredient like. Is there a differentiating factor between this and the Shoe Humira? Or what would you say in? Comparison is this like a dupe of the shoe. Mira what's the same type of product? I mean shoe more. A really there was no one else that were that had cleansing at the time and then this came out and it's completely accessible in most drugstores laugh in Asia. That is this one uses olive oil as a base where show more use a lot of luxury. Beautiful luxury oil. Yes But this uses olive oil and I think that's why it's so thick and La but no it's just so beautiful. I would use this over any luxury or any other. Okay right and the other thing I love about. It is that it will remove all your makeup as well so if you're a lazy person like me find us yes. It's just one step. I don't have to do anything separate. Yeah and so Jews it with Like a cotton pattern. You just use your hands. Just use my okay. Yeah and that takes off the eye makeup. Okay awesome what's after that? After that cream cleanser I I really only use. Non Cream cleansers now. Okay I've been you appreciation for them. But this one is is so lush. I can't even stand okay. It's from African botanical. And it's their flood arose cream cleanser. Okay look never heard of this brand. Never heard of this at all. So African botanic is like the ultimate like luxury meral. Everything's around Moore. Oil Much lay drunk elephant but just that much more luxury. Okay Tom but there are. Things are so their products are I would say they're considered green beauty. Okay Hey on but their products are so lush lovely. You really got that rose sand. Oh this looks very expensive. Is it offensive? It's expensive donate? Don't ask me how much I saw. I blocked area. You're saying it's the best one then. All bets are off. I'm going to try it. It's beautiful. So what differentiates this in your opinion? From other cream cleansers. I would say this is about the aesthetics yelling. There's something so beautifully therapeutic about just the way it smells the way it applies. I mean is it that much. Different from any other cream cleansers. Yeah I mean it will still do the job rates the same job. We'll get everything you know clean and will leave your skin feeling really lovely moisturised but it just has that ingredient deck that is just so elevated and does that extra so. That's that's what I will use when I want to massage my mace. Yeah while I'm cleansing it and this one goes on wet skin or dry skin. This goes on wet skin. Okay and again doesn't leave a residue. That's a big thing for me. I don't like cleansers leaving any sort of. Yeah thank right. Yeah are you against cleansing bombs to then. We've recently been hearing this people against cleansing bombs because of that. I think it depends. They're two types of cleansing bombs. So one is the the sort of original British ones the long. Yeah where you need a towel to or you need a cloth Muslim cough or something to just scrape your makeup off my us. My skin is so sensitive and reactive. So that doesn't work. Oh Man Yeah So. I don't like that type of cleansing bomb personally but I love the cleansing bombs. That emulsified again her. So you add water. It's like an all cleanser you add water and it will suffice it. Rinses OFF CLEAN? Okay what would be an example of a cleansing bomb? That does that emulsifiers. Well Clarence Psalms are I mean? There are so many other pharmacy green clean. Okay I would try that one right one. Yeah so I think that's sort of like a Korean acadian ation. Yeah the Sherbert. They call it Sherbert. Cleansing Ball really. Because it's interesting because all the bombs that I can think of for purse from personal experience I would always need a cloth or it's not coming off. Okay well I think the Pixie double cleanse is a good example of drugstore when that's it's a the oil but then it puts the two of them together so you know that it's in the body. Yeah that's an almost fine cleanse. Yeah Yeah it's really beautiful. Yeah Well Don Caroline Heireann so we have cleansing steps. Wanted to end. Maybe if you have you always done the double cleanse. Has that been a part of your routine forever. No no no no and what made you adopt it because I think a lot of people are confused why they should do it. What made me adopt? It is when I I'm trying to think back. That's a great question. I just one day decided to this double classify. It made such a huge difference. Yeah I think it's because I went to a makeup not a makeup counter. I went to a this was like in a duty free in an airport and I went up to one of those counters one of the brands counters and they had everything laid out and they were telling me this is what the routine needs to be and I think that's when I tried to. I thought well let's let C. And you know it's life changing. I mean if that's the only difference you make in your skin care routine if you want to incorporate any change. If that's the one thing you do it would already make a transformative difference. I think wow in terms of your skin texture or what? What did you notice right away? Everything I. I mean what was horrifying. The fact that I feel that my whole life I never really properly cleanse my skin. Right so after the double cleansing. I realized that my skin was actually clean. Okay so were you seeing more on the Towel. And you're like. Oh this was always left behind. It was more that I just didn't have the clothes commodore on so I didn't have the black heads. I didn't have the breakouts that I used to have any more okay and I felt like my skin. I know this sounds I felt. His skin always looked brighter. Okay after doing maybe because there wasn't as much dirt face anymore again. It just stands to reason that the oil is like removing all of the makeup all the dirt grime and then the cleansing is just like you know actually cleansing your skin. No okay so that's the first step or two stops what's next what's next okay. So for me it's always hydration

"pixies" Discussed on What The Focaccia with Niki Webster and Bettina Campolucci Bordi
"Of populations on the planet in a beautiful way in a in a way that makes us feel connected to others, and that is something that food can do. They're so beautiful, but I think the nature of social media posting about food online means that these groups that we have. These cultures are now in a completely different context that they were actually never really designed to be in the first place. No, exactly there's different categories now within food cultures, isn't that does veganism as Paleo? There's Kito, there's this all sorts of things even carnival coldest carnival, which is probably in my humble opinion, the stupidest way to eat insistence. Why would you get rid of all fruits and vegetables and other plants and just eat meat? I do not understand. It's just become a little bit too extreme I think yeah. The funny thing about the convoy diet is that it's a direct response to the rise of feminism. It's men's way of trying to feel more secure in their own masculinity. That's really interesting. Interesting Cav not really looked into that but. Something that is seen as. Very masculine. And his throughout history represented something that is inherently pot of masculinity, so there's some really interesting research actually in how men who are Vegan. Almost fee-. feel the need to compensate their masculine other ways improved their masculinity in ways because they're not eating meat, you can't go to restaurant. Ask for a steak anymore. Yeah, and because that is such a defining a cultural aspect of masculinity, this idea of a meat eating meeks manner beefing up. You know all these kind of language that we have around meet, and so there's this interesting compensation of masculine. How was it through? Either like for example some of the some in research? What show shows that? Some people do this by going to the gym a lot and getting really bulkier Baksi, saying look how muscular mit need to be muscular. Look at me. How media!.
Why Are Four-Leaf Clovers Considered Lucky?
"One day in two thousand fourteen in Rochester New York. A woman named Sandra rode her bike into town to do some shopping. She locked her steed shopped and came back to find. It gone devastated. She reported the loss to the COPS. Who warned her? Chances of recovery were slim later that day at a coffee shop. She spotted another policeman and cited to tell her sad tale again promising to have a look the cop hopped on his bike and went off on patrol but not before Sandra had given him a four leaf clover to boost his chances within minutes. The obser- found her wheels. Never he reported had he ever recovered a missing item so quickly. The clover had apparently done. Its work nearly as interesting as the happy outcome of this story is the fact that Sandra had a spare four leaf clover on hand. It was no accident. She collected them in fact she had so many that she made a habit of giving them away in this. She's not as unusual as you might think the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of four leaf. Clovers goes to an Edward Martin of Cooper Landing Alaska who has amassed more than one hundred thousand of them and that's truly astounding. When you consider the fact that your chances of finding a four leaf clover are only one in ten thousand so four leaf clovers are supposed to bring good luck and clearly some people really want to pile it on but just what is it. That makes them so lucky. The legend goes all the way back to Adam and eve. One Tale tells that as they were being hustled out of the Garden of Eden. Eve plucked a four leaf clover to carry with her as a souvenir of paradise. The druids of the ancient Celtic world were also big fans of four leaf clovers and carried them around to ward off. Malevolent spirits. This practice evolved into a medieval theory a four leaf clover would give you the ability to spot fairies and take evasive action. If necessary as a result back in the Middle Ages. Kids entertained themselves by ferreting out. Necessary stems and heading out on ferry hunts with the little green plants enjoying such popularity. It's no wonder that. Saint Patrick decided to use them as a teaching tool when he set about converting Ireland to Christianity. The four leaf variety. Being in short supply. He settled on the ubiquitous. Three Leaf clovers to explain the three in one nature of the Holy Trinity. One Leaf stood for the father one for the sun and the third for the Holy Spirit all united on the single stem of the God head similarly a poem in the popular tradition holds that the four leaves on the Lucky clovers signify fame wealth health and faithful. Love along these lines. There's an English belief that if you dream of clover you're guaranteed a happy and prosperous marriage. A west of England in Cornwall. Some people alleged that if pixies stole your child and left a changeling in its place. The only way to get your own offspring back was to lay a four leaf clover on the impostor so we've established that four leaf clovers have been considered powerfully. Lucky for a long time but why clover type of P and it's valued by farmers for a couple of reasons. Cows love to eat it. Bees like to fill up on its nectar and the plant itself like Steph Phillips boots with nitrogen. That's to say. Clover is very good at pulling nitrogen from the air and rooting it in the ground for itself and other plants to eat. There are over three hundred species of clover but the best one for the soil is known as white clover or trifold Liam repents try fully. Repent also happens to be the kind of clover the produces the lucky four leaf aberration that fourth leave as it turns out is the result of suppress gene that sometimes fails to be suppressed like many plants. White clover normally grows leaves in groups of three because for reasons. No one is entirely sure of lots of plants from sunflowers. Two pineapples grow segment and numbers in the FIBONACCI sequence You know it goes out one one. Two three five eight thirteen twenty-one et Cetera et with each new number being the sum of the two previous numbers. It's also what the golden spiral is constructed from so the genetic anomaly that creates four leaf. Clovers only happens in one in ten thousand clovers. It's that rarity that accounts for the luck associated with four leaf clovers in other words. You're lucky just to find one so it stands to reason a certain kind of reason that more luck will follow in that spirit. Here's a bit of Clover Trivia in two thousand nine after studying ways to cross breed. This lucky plant farmer in Japan grew clover with fifty six leaves on it again off from the sequences norm fifty five by one logically. That makes it. Fourteen Times luckier than a mere four leaf clover or rather illogically. This is what scholars call magical thinking because of the way our brains operate were constantly looking for connections in order to explain the happenstance of the world around us magical thinking kicks in when we refused to revise our conclusions. Despite all the evidence to the contrary take the story of Sandra and her stolen bicycle both she and the officer who founded attribute the happy outcome to the four leaf clover. She gave him from her collection. But a skeptic might ask how someone toting a quiver of the lucky clovers would have had the misfortune of being robbed of her bike in the first place. Magical thinking skirts around awkward questions like this and sticks to the convenient details while ignoring the inconvenient ones that said in this case at least magical thinking is a lot more fun than skepticism.
Book of the Month: The Night Watchman by Louise Erdrich
"Louise. We have definitely set the foundation in so now let's meet some of the characters Patrice Aka Pixie Aka. All the other names She is definitely a somebody that I'm sure. A lot of people can relate to especially her resilience and her take on the world You describe her go ahead. Well Pixie was someone who came up. A and announced herself to me is character. My main character Thomas Was very much like my grandfather or inspired by him but Pixie was different and she's a person who a woman who works at the jewel bearing plant. Now that's a real place. That was a real place in Raleigh North Dakota right off the reservation and most of the people who work there women The government ads about this where Because they are good at making these tiny children's because of their Indian blood and because they are good at beadwork but Thomas thinks no because of their sharp is and Turtle Mountain women can spirit with glance. And that's how Pixie is. She's she's working there And suddenly as I was writing her I came to this line. She did things perfectly when enraged. I thought wow I know that person maybe I am that person so then I just started writing Pixie. I really enjoyed writing her and I had to crack up because I was thinking of the different names that when somebody is named Patrice they have all kinds of side names in thought. Wow it's so funny to just see how her name is kind of almost You know this own narrative in its own in wind. She wants to be called a certain name in so really interesting on that and so she takes us to Some of the side of relocation and of course exploitation anything you want to share about that and in what I wrote that in intro that there are things in this book that mirror what we're facing today in our native communities especially in urban settings that was one of them. Tell me more go ahead Lewis. Sure well I wanted to start I wanted to say how how this started so long ago. I mean it started in fourteen ninety. Two the exploitation of native women but relocation was a real chance for this to become something that Something that was more common easier and supported by a government program. You know women would come down to the cities and you didn't get much support you've got a little bit of training and and a little bit of housing and then we're basically set loose. And so women were very vulnerable and are very vulnerable and And picks his sister. Vera is This is something that spend been part of the garden of truth which is a a study done by the Minnesota Indian women's Resource Center. You know they've talked about what the trade what. The trade routes is our for trafficking and so I I used that in in talking about what happens to vera and it's really gets heavy when we learned the truth of various story in her sister who's also pursuing her. She has her own run. In with exploitation. I don't want to give anything away but you tell us a little bit. About some of that police well the skid row area of Minneapolis is really based on a book called King of Skid Row and also on some movies that were taken at that time. There's some movies that you can find online about skid row. Minneapolis and in it. There are heartbreaking pictures of videos of women who are Who are being exploited and there there Obviously there's there's photographs in of them are in video of them and they have a black eye. You know. They'RE PUFFY. They've been they've been hurt and they're in that movie and It it's the thing that that that is so tremendously disturbing is that it only has increased. We only we have so many women we hear every single day. If someone's gone someone's missing and in my experience. This all of this is underreported. Because I know very very few native women who had not suffered in some way from abuse or exploitation in just thinking about it and you even wrote this in the character Mir after after your grandfather of Thomas when he heard of the truth of what was going on in the city and how much it shook him and just how heavy the stories way when even somebody just in our community is among this population or the numbers or the missing numbers in a really appreciate that opening up that this also affects our communities the people who are quote unquote back home There's a lot going on in really appreciate the ability to be talking about some of this because we're talking about a creation from one of our great writers of our time and indigenous writer.

There was a time when I was using using the P fifty. Like almost every when we started this. Podcast you're an everyday P fifty user. Yeah and that. That quickly proved excessive. It was to exfoliating. Yes but I don't know maybe I'll go back to it I did. I did really swear by it. Yeah like you were a die. Hard advocate and. I did not find that it really did much. And then I purchase this other stuff by Yuna Which is another kind of exfoliating. It's vinegar smelling. I think actually does have vinegar in it but I didn't have. I didn't actually really see any results with that. And that's why after using this tar knockout tinkling treatment. Stuff and I said yeah after one use. It is a little sticky going on out. Doesn't have all the ingredients on this. Probably just on the box live to give it a googles. Yeah I I was Kinda like well. Hello Hello you okay. So it has a lot of ages.

Minisode: Late Night Visitor
"Title of this email is going to give it away so I'm just get right into it. Hello friends both human and animal. Thank you for making my weird to crime obsession. Normal and hilarious. Nope Ditto okay. We all know you're awesome. Let's get into it. Hey stay through that. When I was twenty three my live in boyfriend and I broke up for the and for the first time I was living alone with just my amazing pup joey parentheses. It was the fucking best in my house was a dream and within walking distance to all my favorite things yoga studio coffee shop and all my favorite bars. I'd been there for about a month when one night after running home from a bar drunk and then this is in France disease yes I used to literally sprint home after drinking too much. Oh your early twenties. And that is so true. And I couldn't afford usually I'd be too late for any public transit and couldn't of course could not afford a cab that was back when caps were impossible. Right I would run home I also elect. I'm scared of walking home in the dark. So like somehow running felt faster yet dealt felt safer. Yeah I remember one time. Walking up over the most Insane Telegraph Hill is just the most insane like straight up and down San Francisco Street to get from the Castro basically over the hill to the upper haight where I live. A- I'd walk straight uphill and you come around the side of that weird part Yes yes. I was so drunk the by the time I got up and was walking on flat I realized I was still holding a drink from the bar and I hadn't spilled much of it. I finished it and then ran up to a apartment building and slipped my hand down all of the buzzers and ran off thirty in the morning and I woke up everybody in a building and rant thing when you're in your twenties and you think you're a manic pixie dream girl but really you're just a fucking asshole drunk fucking asshole. You're just a bane of everyone's existence in my mind. I was just like can you? Beli- me so quirky I would. I'll just do things do wild. Kirke things inside. That building were people who could afford to live. Top of Telegraph Elliott. They were two thirty in the morning on a Thursday night. They were getting ready for Friday morning. Work and I was like thank God. Okay sorry I'm actually in the middle of reading an email. I woke up around three. Okay this this got me. I woke up around three thirty. Am To my pup sitting up alert and not making a sound. That's fucking scary. When the dogs go into pointer mode and they just stare out the window they just stare and I'm like what. Tell me now I have a beagle. Who HOWLS AT AIR? So seeing him sitting at the end of the bed stiff not making. A sound was alarming. When your Beagle scared it's time to run yet. That's right then. I heard the door banging against a frame and thought fuck didn't get the door shut all the way. I laid there for a moment. Still Kinda drunk contemplating if I wanted to get out of my comfy bed or allow the gods to determine my faith finally got up when I got to the edge of the stairway leading to my front door. I saw him a complete stranger standing outside trying to get into my house. I very quickly note that shit and called nine one. Luckily for me my apartment was only half a mile to the police station. Thank you small towns. I was going to say thank you. Small miracles is a perfect line. Break thank you small towns and the cops got there in no time after getting him into the police car. The COP knocked on the door to take my statement when I told him my name. He goes are you sure. You don't know this man puzzled. I assured him I've never seen the guy before in my life and asked why he then goes. This guy. Claims you're married and knew your name what you read that right all caps. The Guy knew my whole fucking name. Obviously I moved out of that apartment within the month and never heard from my late night visitor ever again. God Joey has been with me now for eight years and this is only one of the many gifts he's given me. Stay sexy and get yourself a loyal pup amand on the guy fucking knew her and was like that's my wife and their two. He's been stalking her. He had trying to trick the cops that it was his wife and she's just being drunk. Can you imagine there was a time? Maybe we might still be in it. Where just because that guy was the man he would have been believe? The women would be like guys. She's crazy looking dogs are she gets like the she loves to drink. Mad At me on the street at the bar. I've stalked her at no. No
Musicians Are Canceling & Postponing Asian Tour Dates Due to Coronavirus Concerns
"The Corona Virus Ariss already has claimed more than one thousand lives in mainland China since it was first detected in the city of Wuhan. The virus has spread to two dozen other countries injuries and now some bands and musicians are postponing or altogether canceling tour dates in Asia. I spoke with billboards. Pop correspondent Tamar Herman About Corona virus concerns and she started by telling me which acts have been affected by the Healthcare Bryant. Now we're seeing a lot of artists canceling events in Asia Who you know? Spend the board. Whether they're China focused axe Japanese. Ask reenact the pixies just cancelled something. You know the Boston Orchestra cancelled a a lot of K pop and Hong Kong based in Mando Pop. Artists are canceling their tours within Asia. But beyond that we're starting to see some Asian acts cancel their tours beyond Asia. So so a few K pop groups recently cancelled European legs of their tour in addition to either postponing or cancelling dates of shows in Asia. So we're kind of seeing a lot of people really Trying to anticipate the worst because we really don't know so much about corona virus right now so I think a lot of people are trying to take a preventative action to make sure that they both artists and as humans. They're not unwittingly the cause of of a mass outbreak. A concert or something so are they concerned that that by staging an event with a lot of people in one place it could accelerate the spread of the virus. Are they worrying about their own personal health. Ulf I guess they could also be worried about whether or not people are going to show up and buy tickets. What are the factors that are going into these decisions? So it's pretty much all of the above you know people will are not really sure how the virus spreads right now. We really don't have a whole lot of information. We just know that it's spreading pretty rapidly so I think there is kind of the concern of artists travelling internationally or just even interacting with more people than usual especially when some parts of China and other other countries are already putting people under quarantine. So kind of just preventative you know. We don't want to engage with the virus. We don't want our fans to engage the virus UK Pop ax gave out. You know masks. They made sure there was hand. Sanitizer in Apple's so and I'm pretty sure that was right as we started hearing about the lack back of masks. And now we're hearing more and more either cancellations or putting off the dates end kind of trying to find some middle ground but a few events are still being held. The With the aid of digital media livestream is and whatnot. Ray Now things are pretty unclear. Nobody really knows what's going on so it just Kinda seems like people are being preventative for the sake of being preventative. A lot of the concern right now is in Asia but the virus seems to be spreading. Globally are there acts who are now canceling canceling outside of Asia. Maybe in Europe maybe in North America at what point are people reconsidering their entire tours so KEPA play bent seventeen just cancelled the rest of their. Ot World tour. They were supposed to go to Europe and a few other countries in Asia after having already toured throughout Asia in the US and now they just kind of put a halt halt to it and they just said we're not continuing this tour. We don't really know what's going on in Corona viruses. Just too much so we are seeing that another I think another pop group Ab six. It's also canceled their upcoming European tour. Were haven't really heard so many cancellations in the US yet but we also haven't had many cases of corona virus in the US yet. So it could be that there are more in Europe. So we're hearing more beret now. Predominantly the cancellations are Asia based but we're increasingly hearing about outside out of Asia as well we're talking with Tamar Herman at billboard about concerts being canceled over corona virus ears when an organization like the Boston symphony any orchestra goes on a tour to Asia. They are in some ways kind of cultural ambassadors. They're bringing their music to an audience. That might not have heard it before. But when pop bands are touring. It's basically how they make a living because streaming has really impacted the amount that artist can make off of record sales. So how important. Horton is touring and the merchandise related terrain to most bands. And it's GONNA be a financial problem for a lot of bands. Were having to cancel. Yeah it's wearing makes a lot of money so so you know the the postponements kind of makes sense for the few acts that have postponed their tours in there could probably try to re new pick a new date. That's GonNa be a way that we're going to the artist. Try Not to lose out on the money but artists that have canceled their whole tours like beyond even the pop ax. We see also not only Boston Symphony Orchestra. The National National Symphony Orchestra have canceled their Tornado. Like we're seeing total shutouts happening and so it's not only going to impact them financially because now oh you know they've already signed contracts with their performers. They're not making any money soon that the orchestra still has to pay their staff. There's going to be a huge lost their size soon. Boom we're GONNA see some bands in some companies. TRY TO RECOVER THEIR LOSS by setting up last minute events or concerts in the near future closer to home. Maybe but concerts ticket. Sales are GONNA have to be refunded. That's going to be huge loss for companies as I mentioned that group seventeen. They closed out the whole tour and they had had huge arenas that they were performing and so now they have old loss of ticket and revenue and just the general contractor fees that you put into when you're putting on a a show you're paying promoters you. These people still have to be paid so I think we're GONNA see pretty sizable losses to some degree. Depending on how these companies recover recover their losses. And it's time will tell how big these losses are but it's pretty sizeable just in the moment to see you know saying. Oh we're we're shutting out three five ten dates that we've already sold tickets for that many has to be refunded. The money has to be found somehow in other business. You know. We're probably GONNA you see a big dip in a lot of music companies if this keeps on happening so the death toll from the corona virus has surpassed one thousand people in mainland China which has passed what SARS killed in two thousand and three. So how. How are the cancellations compared to what happened around? SARS seventeen years ago right now AL I. It's really hard to compare this just starting. We don't know how long this is going to last. And hopefully things can be figured out more quickly than that Tamar. Herman is a pop correspondent for Billboard Tamar. Thanks so much for coming on the
Pop Music's Past Is Crowding Out Its Present
"Will host Nate Wilcox and today we're joined by Simon Reynolds the author Retro Mania Pop Culture's addiction to its own past ask Simon Welcome. Thanks for having me on your podcast. It's a pleasure. This book made a big impression on me when it first came out and I'm looking forward to discussing it with you a decade after its publication or not quite a decade. I guess but Close now I can look back at the teens as well as the knots. But the fundamental argument every book which definitely jibed with. What I was feeling intuitively? was that in the beginning direction. You say I'm I'm what am imagining isn't a cataclysm. So much as a gradual wind down this is the white pop ends not with a bang but with a box set whose fourth disc never get around to plane and overprice a price ticket to the track by track. Re staging of the pixies pavement album. You play to death your first year at university if the pulse of now felt weaker with each passing year. That's because in the two thousands. The POP president became evermore crowded out by the past whether in the form of archive memories of yesteryear or retro. Rock leaching off ancient styles. So that's Kinda the thing we wanted to discuss is do you think that's still true I think everything that I write about in Richmond is still still going on Still a lot of reissuing as the festival lineups Overcrowded with people called legacy acts Either accident never a very old. Never stop playing Obama that re reunited because there is this sort of lucrative circuit now for reunion is There's a lot of younger bands who music is a kind of pastiche. Oh pick a mix of things will be all sides and beyond music as you know. TV reboot send and film franchise is based on you know quite old comic books. All beloved films from the seventies you know just endlessly get get anew the Prequel Aura. post-coup added to it So everytime I write about in the book is still going. It doesn't feel as oppressive to me. It feels like this quite a lot. More really contemporary sounding music and very digital sounding music. That feels two thousand and ten minutes. It's five so I wouldn't say I'm quite as gloomy as I was when I wrote the book but at the time writing the bogey felt we were inundated not by the past and it was this sense of. Yeah as I put it in the intro of being over the present been crowded out there. Were all these things competing for your attention and And a lot of emphasis sort of you know people dealing with these new online Al-Qods essentially repub kind of amateur amateur archives. Youtube is kind of amateur. Archive has very current. This minute kind of things in it as well but a lot of youtube content and was especially seemed to be the case in the early days of Youtube was old crap. You know that someone you know someone did a comp- you know someone's GonNa Compilation of beloved TV commercials from Nineteen Seventies UK. Kept some old pop shows as you know. Strange documentaries will never been shown since they were first ad in the in the seventies or eighties. So there it was always rich Israeli which is kind of rich as you could get lost in and That that's still going on but I feel I feel a bit more. I'm excited about music. At least I feel. There is me the fields current united feels like very now and this'll be a little bit past a ton this show airs but just yesterday. We had a controversy on twitter. Billy Irish Pretty young pop. Upswing are not knowing who van Halen was and boomer and Gen Xer van Halen fans just being a gas What did you make that you follow it out? Little Kerfluffle at all is funny on might sort of twitter feed and facebook. Everyone's like I haven't seen anyone like making fun of weather will like. Why should she know who are some of them are like old new wave? Like van Halen was shit anyway so I haven't seen anyone you know maybe moving different circles. I'm I was. I was surprised she had never heard jump. You know because that's on the radio still and it's like an old time American classic classic but Yeah why would she know. Who'd been having? I mean she probably heard and let me read the you know. The name has not stock forever reason. Yeah she's a completely different different generation. I think we probably will see tweet with someone. Says it's like someone in Van. HALEN's Day you know not knowing who Luke Benny Goodman or some sort of swing. Jazz was excise the time difference. You know that seems pretty on the money. Why would a seventeen year old when eighteen year old? Whatever she is now be aware of Finland Particularly didn't it didn't seem like You Know I. I haven't seen mcclay but I got the impression that she was kind of saying. That kind of amused self deprecating way. It wasn't like some got shallow. Shell like where you know So in quarter hour you know you say you're a musician get you've never heard of Eddie. Van Halen's legendary tap fret tapping pinged guitar technique. You know. She says she's the modern Vanhanen but she's from La I live in south South Pasadena and I think Bannon came from Pasadena. She sort of in the you know she's a modern. La Music making making music actually defunding with her brother. The van Halen had two brothers into nine and so she doing interesting new things that are very involved in the now. You know they they that success is is Is using the latest online media through a tick. Talking Elise ways kids find out things. My youngest kid is crazy into the EILLY. So you know it's it's a bright new tomorrow where Van Halen are a little footnote and wash you know. Why should they care? Yeah Yeah I took it as a good sign That your arguments not not that. I'm against your arguments with just that you worrying about in the book that the pass was right now the future and it seems like this current generation of kids who as a parent. It's it's interesting. They have such a different relationship with popular culture than we had as Gen xers a you are in Britain. I was in the states growing up but you know we were soaking and decades of reruns and old movies that were on. TV that we might have anywhere from three three to fifty channels. But still you're flipping through and you're going to see Humphrey Barton and you're gonNA see Benny Goodman. And you're going to see Frank Sinatra and kids today everything they Z.. Is Pretty much selected. And so I'm actually sort of worrying that the musical history is being lost for the new generation. But let's let's stick to the a book though and and how much different stories like for instance a often anecdotally through friends and seeing what their kids into you view is always about how a particular kid eleven ever is just crazy about the Beatles unknown and just just listen to the Beatles so I think it's all for them to discover I. I suspect what it is. Is this thing I write about in the book. kool-aid temporary where the chronology music is. All jumbled up and and on things that are very old that might pop into their world through whatever means sort of things that I'd presence and they don't necessarily have a sense of the chronology Iraq history when I was getting into music. It was a fairly simple chronology rock and roll the Beatles and the stones You Know Glam Rock Bowie Psychedelia before that and then punk and you could sort of understand is only three stages of history that you can get basic you know you can understand the paragraph Really and a few song examples but now the music history so sprawling and Dan things that have been left out of history of been readmitted you know like disco is very celebrated. Now is as an important era music and prog. Ross has been rehabilitated. Is No longer this thing that you know Pumpkin. You I've said was a complete waste land. I grew up with that idea. That was completely. You should go there. I think it's a much more complicated very sincere music history that you had to do a little bit of work if you won't understand it but people pick up on bits of music. Prep some fans will will She listened to Van Halen because of his whole this whole silly cophil full about
"pixies" Discussed on Overthinking It Podcast
"Philip. He's he's portrayed so he's great in real life. Oh oh I thought you made in the show no in the show. He's like a sort of beautifully. Tragic like gentle confused masculine. No real life. I think I think Matthew Smith described cool cat. which is I think the kindest way to say it? He's like disconcerted with things that happen in the world. Anyway sorry go ahead. I don't want to steal your thunder and leg so like yeah exactly. I had to like you know in a little bit I. It's it's funny I asked. I once asked a friend of mine whose English I ask an English Person If they would watch the Queen's Queens Christmas greeting the Queen's Christmas message in a given year and the revulsion with which my friend Said said. No you know was so was so foreign to me because I am a non British person and so I I love the British monarchy. I think they're far more popular outside the country than they are inside the country. It like. It's funny like of to me. That would be the easiest sell by the way like for you know in a season where where the characters are very concerned with like. How do we sell our value to increasingly republican English English public Like the foreign the International Relations Angle would would be it for me like it's such A. It's a huge brand for you know for the country and like so valuable. You can't you can't make it like you can't you couldn't design that like all the all. The Art are directors in all the brand consultancies and all the king's men couldn't put the British monarchy together again. And it's you know I don't know I just think you don't trade that away. I think if if you can help it because the it really there is definitely definitely an aura. There's a you know valuable mystique to it but but anyway I to remind myself that that you know that these people weren't weren't super great but the the I completely lost the threat of this unlike twits twitter. I think yeah exactly that that's like a well. Yeah that's what I'm saying that like in in point of historical fact you you might. You might take issue you know with these people's lives or some of the opinions they hold or things like that but mark. Well you had a a a more specific question. I'm sorry I've I've lost it. We should move on. I've I've lost sight of the ball. Certain Okay so you start to talk about like how to sell the monarchy and how pitch it has like something grand the amazing right. And so you mentioned the Foreign Relations Angle and the The branding aspect of it right and we saw that In I think the second episode right where Margaret Argos and charms the Americans and get a lot of money and stuff like that. which by the way is like highly fictional straight? That was the the those two things were not really connected at all but let's contrast that with Dig into a little bit. What is what is Robert? What is Robert Caro's say about Margaret's Attention for dirty limericks phrase. She doesn't Doesn't warrant a mention biographer of LBJ. Yeah by the way played by clancy brown the Kurkin himself himself right playing Lyndon B Johnson in a lovely portrayal. I thought not a very realistic. One I don't know maybe he was. Maybe it wasn't no sorry. Continue on a side not on that they did capture one of the most important aspects of LBJ's presidency which was him leaving the door open and doing and and doing business and both the senses of the word That's like a power play and also just like you know just like you know. Crashes was his brand anyway Branding the failed attempt to leveraging the brand or burnishing the brand or building the brand is the reality. TV You know the real housewives of Buckingham Palace for Bubba cans right like they think like you know they'll be with the time they'll do. They'll put themselves on screen. We use mass media and on to your point. Matt this is Prince Philip's idea and it turns out to be colossal failure. Right they did that has shown. There's there's shown to be boring and Banal Now the irony of course. Is that when we get when we get to watch the real housewives of Buckingham Palis Twenty one thousand nine net flicks. It's anything but boring banal right. It's SEC`stop it's arresting is dramatic and everything like that but what gets shown on the BBC. It's not that right so like what is there to say about the the little reality show within the show from the obvious thing about. Oh like they're watching the the royals on TV and we are also everyone's watching the wheels on TV then subway. I guess well. Did you want to address this as you were being referred to specifically because the stars. They're just like us well. They sit around and watch television Jn just like us they You know but they don't I mean I guess that's kind of that's kind of the point What were you about to say people? Oh just that. I'm curious whether and to what degree that's what people want them to be right. Like what is it that you what do you what As Billy Corgan said whilst writing Big Thunder Mountain what the Hell do you want for me. The question as to why you're watching me all the time I did have a bit of a podcast callback. And the idea is that okay. If the job of the queen or the royalty is to ride to the people you know if the royals are popular sovereigns and they kind of represent the interests of the people and and as the Queen's says you know the people the government that on her bath or whatever and that's that's what causes things to happen. Well if the people want drama than who is it. Who are the royals to say that they're not going to provide us like I don't think it's the point of the show but it's an interesting idea in general about the relationship between Paparazzi and royalty if the people want the royals to be people that they watch we'll all the power authority and money of the royals comes from the people anyway. So shouldn't they just do what they're asked in that sense. You know well okay so so to think about about it more specifically in in the crown right it episode to Princess Margaret goes to the White House and charms Lyndon Johnson to help digger country out of economic crisis by wining and dining him kissing him right showing him that he's like did she's not stuffy that she's kind of a party girl and he likes that and then the last episode. She does a similar sort of thing you you know. She goes on a trip with a dude and she wines and dines and she has sex with them and and and everybody is like. Oh this is so terrible right and it's sort of like well she yes I mean. It's not exactly the same right. But I think the two events are analogous and they're also analogous with her torrid romance with Tony that we see in season to to to write resumes season one. I don't remember exactly when that happens where it's like. Well we all wanted to watch that and we all WanNa watch the show right so it's sort of like you know Dr new royals for doing things that we want to watch is is kind of is a faint faint condemnation is is on saying from our perspective but at the same time if you want to be an effective king or queen and there's all signs pointed this probably being a bad idea although I mean if viewer look at heads of state in and around the world right now certainly you know being theatrical and transgressive in your personal portman behavior is certainly not a Disqualifying characteristic for a world leader at this point If anything you know maybe it seems to provide certain advantages in about the short long-term at least two seizing and maintaining power. I don't know it's tough. It's I don't think that the season gives us too. Many easy answers. Sure is tall that stuff but it certainly certainly. It suggests that you doesn't make you good at being a royal to have a lot of unsettled personal. Angst that you can't cope with. It certainly makes unpleasant for you. And if your goal is for things to be pleasant for you. You're probably up a creek without a battleship right. I mean I guess because there's no real way out I mean can I just point out can point one thing that that that Margaret is causing the problems for the family by drinking too much and having parties and then she goes on one kind of important diplomatic mission and then she's told that she you can't have any job with the family ever again. Meanwhile Taiwian Lancaster. Hi Charles Dance himself. Lord mountbatten the architect of I think the British Navy's Burma is Southeast Asia campaign during the Second World War plots a full-on military coup of the country right and is brought into the fold and given responsibility to like attend to matters within the royal family which keeps him out of trouble right. So there's like huge aged double standards happening across these different these different parallel stories. People come to different ends so it's hard to extrapolate anyone lesson from this as much as we were to look at the contradictions contradictions and conflicts to me. The lesson I took away from that Pete was be a dude. It's GonNa go easier on. They're going to be a dude. I I was glad that that that gets a plot a AH treasonous wedding in this.

Cynthia had been a fad even as late as the nineteen fifties. He was still trying to get her back into the limelight. This time with a new plan to have of her wired so that she could move and that her mouth could move because he wanted to create a television show for her. The idea go to rig Cynthia with an electronic speaker system so that it would seem like she was talking if he could get her to talk. Gather Thi- he could get her talk. Show Gaba. Spent ten thousand dollars trying and trying to make Cynthia into a talking Automaton as if all he needed to do was to make her a little more real than everything would go back to the way it was but the new and improved. Cynthia didn't make any sense of the word sounded garbled the networks lost interest and the television show out never went anywhere by then. Most people had forgotten all about the original. Gabby girls and Vincent Minnelli Gamba's rumored lover had moved to Hollywood would leaving Leicester alone in New York so those tax combined just suggested a loss of touch with reality reality you had touch with reality. He created his own reality. This is morton miles breath. He met Lester in New York. After the whole Cynthia Fair in the sixties and they hit it off Oh yes he was a lot of fun he was the most creative person. Anybody Avenue totally totally self interested but but you take it from him because he had a lot to offer. They met on fire island and at that point at least lesser sexuality wasn't a question last. There was never very shy as a gay person. He was there all the time. GABBA had turn to teaching design at a local college and writing a column about fashion display. In women's wear daily and Morton was also in the fashion business. He was a clothing designer. Jackie Kennedy actually wore one of Morton's dresses as first lady in one day Leicester saw the photo of Mrs Kennedy in Morton's dress and he's all that would have really only worked for Cynthia. This was one of the few Times Morton remembers. Lester bringing up Cynthia at all for the most part he wouldn't talk about it. He didn't like people joking about her own. Oh Oh no no. Cynthia was not a joke in fact he apparently had been laughed at so much doing this that no no cindy it was something. He was very serious about that. She was a creation of But Leicester's friends had a hard time taking Cynthia. As seriously as he did did the world had moved on it was just like now where something is a hot topic and it lasts about twenty seven seconds seconds and then they go onto the next hot topic. Well it was no different than acceptable. Just a little bit slower. So less Cynthia was was still an oddity. People would still talk about it but he was the rt not Cynthia Morton says Lester always had one foot in a world of his own creation. He make grand pronouncements about the fashion scene or European culture with so much conviction that they almost sounded founded true but weren't even at the end of his life. Morton says Lester was still that small town boy from Hannibal Missouri trying to fake it till he made it in the big city see list. I had a lot of thoughts that have to do with unreal things that he made real but he couldn't make them real any any longer. Lester Gaba died in nineteen eighty seven.

"This is ninety nine percent invisible. I'm Roman Mars a while back Gene Gene Atkins heard a funny story from her mother-in-law Caroline that first time I heard it was the only time I heard it. The story took place in their hometown of Hannibal Missouri and involved one of the towns native. Sons Lester Gaba or Gabe our Kabbah however you say his name Lester Gaba. I'M GONNA go. GABBA was was a family friend who had grown up in Hannibal in the early nineteen hundreds and then made a name from self glamorous world of New York fashion and jeans mother-in-law story was about. There's one time when Gaba came back to town. Lester was visiting handball after having become famous and he was returning with Cynthia. Cynthia was Leicester's equally. Glamorous girlfriend a socialite who hailed from Manhattan's upper crust in so jeans mother-in-law's family invited them Over for an afternoon tea. Think a room full of women dressed up Hannibal's high society and given the time and given the importance of the guest and the fact that he was from New York City it would have been seen as an important social event and her mother-in-law law who at the time was still a young girl was given the critical task of providing the guests with snacks which must have felt like the perfect opportunity to meet this Cynthia that everyone everyone was talking about so she carefully took a tray of cookies around the room table table. person the person well then. She offered Cynthia some cookies. Only only it turned out. There was a problem. Cynthia was unresponsive in. There was a good reason for this. WELL CYNTHIA'S IT turns out was a mannequin until that moment jeans mother-in-law had just assumed that Cynthia was a real person but only because all grownups had been treating Cynthia like a real person. Listen and in fact. When they saw her surprise the grownups just laughed at her reaction and then continued acting like nothing was out of the ordinary? Everyone at the party just went along. With the fact act that there was a mannequin present but gave it a spot at the table. Because Cynthia wasn't just any old mannequin from New York. This wasn't even her first social event that's reporter Mitchell Johnson by the time James mother-in-law met her she had already attended balls graced the front pages of magazines and appeared in Hollywood movies. Cynthia was a celebrity a celebrity at the center of one man's life. She was his ticket to fame and eventually the object of his obsession but she was also at the center of a larger story about department stores. There rise there fall and how they forever changed the way we shop before online ads. Before television department stores had one major medium him with which to display their close to the outside world the window the arrival of affordable plate glass in the eighteen hundreds turn storefronts into advertising spaces races and that's at mannequins which had earlier mostly been used for fitting close to the front of the store by the early twentieth century. There was a new career window display designer. What the display designer wants you to do is not just look but to stop? That's the next stage of actually capturing your your desire that Sarah Schneider. She wrote a book on Mannequins in store. Windows called vital mummies and a lot of it is about this exact moment when you're stopped on the St looking into a window in the early nineteen hundreds what you would be looking at was a kaleidoscopic collection of things for you to buy people wanted variety very commonly the The window display was simply like this Cornucopia of products being presented in the windows to show show that the store really did have everything and the idea was the more you could show the more you could entice people to come in because they would see the advantage of being able to shop in one place for everything they needed and in the early twentieth century. If this worked and you walked into one of the big department stores in New York you'd find some of the most ornate eight spaces in the city merchandise everywhere. Wonderful decorations really kind of opulent displays. That's a Lotta shady a historian at the National Museum of American history and she says the interiors of department stores were just like their window displays jam packed with attractions. The stores featured concert halls tea rooms restaurants and fashion shows replete with champagne at one point to help sell a line of winter. Wear Saks saks. Fifth Avenue installed an indoor ski slope growing up in small town. Hannibal Missouri Young Lester. Gaba dreamed of entering the luxurious world of these elite department stores. His father was a shopkeeper and as a boy he spent most of his free time concocting elaborate displays for the shops front window using whatever materials he he had hand one time he painted some old soap boxes black and white and put them in the window to create the appearance of checkered tiles. Anything to give the family business this touch of big city clamor. I know that he and his father had some sort of argument around like about display. And he you know very dramatically Atakli said well I I gathered my things and I left after the fight with his father. Lester Gabba left Hannibal for good editor to become a window display designer but when gab of finally arrived in New York in the early thirties he found that department stores window displays especially the mannequins. At the time. There were two main styles of mannequins. One was a holdover from the nineteenth century. You would still certainly have these uncannily realistic looking figures that looked I would say kind of like a bit dowdy. They were carved out of wax and may eight to be extremely lifelike often with real human hair and eyelashes on the hottest days. They would sometimes melt in the store window. The other main style style of mannequin at the time was more recent invention from the twenty S. These were art deco. Abstract think human figures turned into Modernist Ernest Picasso like shapes when Leicester arrived they would still have been considered very sophisticated and avangard but they didn't necessarily early have like personality. Jetta was part of a new generation of window designers who thought there must be a way to do better his static opinions where that that windows needed a facelift. In the windows in themselves needed personality along with the women who inhabited those windows the mannequins so in nineteen eighteen thirty two gabba wrote into a trade publication. Calling for a revolution in mannequin design. In the article he argued. That mannequins should embody an ideal cavero. Put Joan Crawford in store case and even husbands will WANNA go window shopping so he. He's trying to find that balance. Between how do you make the mannequin. Look realistic enough to be relatable and how do you make her embodiment of the figure that women wish. They were to make her desirable able. So when Gaba was commissioned by saks fifth avenue and to create a new line of window displays he saw it as an opportunity to make his perfect mannequin and because he wanted it to embody this kind of causal ideal he decided to model his mannequins off. A group of people who were idolized in real life? New York society within socialites. Deborah began to seek out socialites. Imagine the daughter of steel magnate then perhaps a banking heiress and had them pose for him in his studio one by one they sat for gala and by hand he sculpted a life size version of each each woman out of clay. The clay figure to make a mold. And then use the mold to make a mannequin. When he was finished he called his new line of Mannequins? Gabar Gabar girls girls in quite look like mannequins do today. They were made out of a heavy plaster material instead of plastic and they still had distinct facial features including eyes and lips that were painted on but they were no longer the hyper realistic wax figures. That had come before four instead the adjust enough detail to give each one its own personality. One or two had some freckles. One had a beauty mark so there were ways in which the inanimate woman would communicate part of her own self. But out of all the girls Lester began to fix a on one. In particular you're a mannequin. who he would come to believe? With different. From the others a mannequin. He simply called Cynthia. We know virtually nothing thing about the real life. Person Gabby used as a model for Cynthia except possibly a name Cynthia Wells. We don't even know how she came to model for him. Or uh which of her actual features were used for the final mold in which he just invented but once Gabba saw the result he was was just totally astounded runaway. Lester could see that Cynthia the mannequin had leary. Particular look see was quite slender. Very light colored peach skin long hair in a wig very faint angular draw line very small pointed slightly upturned nose knows but it was more than just her physical features it was how they all added up into a certain kind of attitude. It was this wonderful combination nation of like New York snobbery and total like quiet humility. That made her appear very inviting and very sweet but also Like she had a lot of secrets or describe it beyond that but the gays could kind of cut. Through you Cynthia's persona was perched I ever so delicately between warm intimacy and cool distance she was the embodiment of Gava's long sought after ideal. And that's when when Lester Gaba.

"Investment starting to wonder if Radio Topa really needed to exist anymore. I mean there's no company called Radio Tokyo that anyone owns. It's just an idea. The shows in Radio Topa are the best us. Oh maybe someone with deep pockets could come in Hubei everyone out and giving one stable jobs and they would just keep making stuff and the struggle of being independent producer would go away but as soon as venture capital and speculation pumped money into the system. Dumb people started devising bad ways to recoup their investment had violated the spirit of what made made podcasting special to me and I came back to the conclusion but a strong producer owned collective was more important than ever each radio. Tovia show is its own little business business. We pool part of our resources and we handle all the technical back end in marketing and AD sales and emotional support and then each show rests on that solid foundation in can be built up to be as big or small as it can be so. It's part social collective in part market driven entrepreneurship. I love that arrangement and I think it's important Gordon. It's philosophically morally important. But I also think it makes the best podcasts.

very much from oh I was this bad unhealthy fat person now look at my transformation where I heard the gospel and I changed and now I've seen the good I've heard the good news and now I'm spreading it now I'm Yvonne Evangelist on behalf of the of the leader how is that religious yeah there's a big difference between saying Kai tell you about Jesus and have you considered eating fewer calories it's the same it's the same thing it's still it gives you a sense of morality gives you a sense of community it gives you a sense of who you are as a person how you define twelve and it gives you a sense of comfort and takes away some of your your choice but in the sense that would take some of those hard like those difficult question us that we face in life about what happens when we die but then all say whose fault is it if I'm on well or am I eating the right foods and all these kinds of questions than get always passed onto someone else and we feel a little bit more comfortable just going about everyday lives without having to think about as difficult questions so what happened how did you what happened I go hold on what is happening this is not good there's was kind of a lightbulb moment for me which was when I was in Australia so I took a gap evolved my first degree and I went travelling and funnily enough so my first stop while I was traveling was in India and I arrived instantly was like I can't be Vegan her she's not going to it's not possible everyone uses in everything does and that's not Vegan and I was like it's fine weirdly was kind of okay with that but then went to Australia and was very much Mike Okay so full on wellness clean eating Vegan does back because that's what's easy to do the and I made friends with some wellness bloggers because those are the only people you can eat with because they're the only people he will eat the same places as you have the same weird rules around for your does you and then is in a call with a bunch of them and then one of them says court I would never dream affects not my kids and I was served shocked by that I was so shocked I knew that what they said was so wrong so wrong in Surrey damaging so potentially the other people and this was this was something that I was associating with and I was like I can't do that I can't be associated with this this misinformation this harm this this terrible messaging especially when everyone else in the call was like Oh yes aiming I was like Oh my God just sitting silently just in shock couldn't say anything and from that point on I realized if they are so wrong about this which I nerd be so wrong on so harmful what else do these people say and think that I have also believed perhaps that is harmful and wrong and so and in a way it was always this in this kind of sense very black and white thinking was really helpful to start with one thing is wrong maybe it's all wrong and that was important for me to get to the point where I then realized it wasn't can white but I needed that black and white like maybe it's all wrong to actually start thinking about start thinking about it and start actually researching and realize that well maybe not all of it was but a lot of it was wrong and so then started rethinking my life choices and rethinking what is posting on social media and started gradually calling out information as I saw it and especially what these other wellness bloggers were saying and they got to the point where I was essentially saying to people like always show we want into these wellness bogus who are ready unqualified who are not qualified to give nutrition advice and I thought hang on a minute I'm technically at this point of blogger who's not qualified about nutrition let's change that let's not be hypocrite let's change that so I got back from Australia in July applied for master's degree nutrition go to accept it in Estonians at timber and the rest is history I so and I know I know there isn't a discrepancy but I think it feels like a discrepancy that you're you're both perfectionist and I think a lot of people connect it will connect that with needing to do the right thing end you're you're in this incredibly popular you following all these rules that would make you morally right you're doing other things veganism and the wellness blogging and stuff and you popular within this group and you had a community it feels like a lot of strength is right words Alpha win a lot of to remove yourself from that and to make yourself unpopular amongst a lot of people because as you know getting away from a cult like you can be precise and and I think that would scare quite a lot of people the idea of doing that so you move yourself from an I guess the feeling of doing the actually right thing must be quite strong like have you always had this needs to be be do you know what I'm saying this I think yeah it was a challenge because the people pleasing aspect was then tricky I think one of the key things that made it possible with the fact that I was on the other side of the world so I was physically distant from this entire community in the UK. I didn't really have a strong connection with Australian wellness bogus so much in the same way that I had with the UK people because I was in that community I physically saw those people I spent time with them I was going to the same book launches and events things I think because I was physically distanced I was able to then sort of customer those ties more easily babs and the other it was just it was such a shock and at the same time while this was happening the Bell Gibson Scandal broke out in Australia and Bell Gibson is the trillion wellness blogger who claimed that she healed terminal brain cancer with a Vegan owned or we diet and it turns out she lied not only about curing herself but she lied having brain cancer in the first place where any cancer she says and she she was in the same town the I was in Australia and when that happened that just that was just the all the encouragement that I needed to actually start really getting away Mrs much as possible and I think that physical distance was really important because it meant when I came back I I've been away for almost a year so obviously I'd lost contact with most of the people and that made it easier to they're not start that contact again in the same way with people I came back I think perhaps if I hadn't been away it wouldn't have happened in the same way I think and also the fact that I was starting a new chapter in life in a sense I was changing my entire career plans my entire life planet have been completely changed I was planning on I had a place to study medicine and I basically cancelled it too study nutrition and said it was a complete like like cutting off one life and starting another which is weird because that will be the second time that I've done in my life which is weird and if I changed he suddenly I would lose people and I didn't want to lose people for two reasons firstly doesn't make you feel good not on no-one likes losing followers it doesn't make you feel great time these are people who had potentially misled and caused harm to so those were the exact same people I needed to reach by correcting what I'd already said and so I knew the only way to do that was to gradually gently so that they would stay with me and not get lost along the way and not give up along the way and that actually worked really well.

Are speaking out saying Facebook is blocking many gay-themed ads KCBS Rebecca corral has the story. What's political about a movie night, featuring the film, Selena if your Facebook, and the movie is being screened at L A's LGBT center than it's political nothing political about one's identity only when some elected officials make it that way, even kill Nick of the LGBT network says his organization has seen about fifteen different ads rejected by Facebook for being too political or ads for some of our programs for young people such as an LGBT youth prom pride night that we do with the New York Mets, a Long Island pride celebration were all blocked by Facebook. And it really perplexed me as to why. And we got a response back from them saying, they considered that political content. Facebook uses human and automated monitors to identify political content and apparently anything involving the LGBT community gets caught by the filter. Even if it's an ad for a dance or a movie night to decidedly nonpolitical events. Facebook will run the ads, but only if the sponsors register as political entities at allow the posts to be label.
