"We're going to get around above stories making news in the Balkans now I'm joined to buy our correspondence in the region at guide to Lauraingraham. Good afternoon to you. You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey. If you can see if it's not to. Dock sounds very promising. Let's continue our tour next to L.. The obeyed and authorities are facing legal action. Tell us more about that. into the on this is over the the controversial demolition of the national. Theatre building in Tirana now. This happened last month.

Everybody move on well surprise prize. Everybody hasn't moved on. There's a group which call themselves the Alliance for the protection of the National Theatre well.

"We had this six weeks suspension announced that means no Miami no Charleston on the W. T. side this was an issue of the ATP announced on their own unilaterally. Canceling MIAMI MONTE-CARLO IS GONNA go and everything. Bassi up until the end of of April and bit by bit. The WTI came pretty much to the same conclusion but they tried to do it one at a time rather than just doing a complete block of canceling everything. That's where we stand. At the moment we have had another update today a WTI saying because of the ongoing Global Corona Virus outbreak the WTO tournaments in stood guard Istanbul and Prague in April Arcane to be cancelled as well and so everything is suspended on. Wgn Tore now until may the second they say we will make a decision in the week ahead regarding the remaining Wti a European play caught tournaments are monitoring the situation closely so it may not be the end of of the constellations even even now so here we are amid March. We know we're not GONNA get any tennis on the women's side until may the second so let's talk to a couple of the players who are out in India wells who were affected by this situation starting with the British number. One on the men's side Down Evans World Number Twenty eight career high ranking of twenty eight. I had a little chat with him before he went to Indian wells initially when he was still in Dubai and I sensed then he was pretty anxious about the whole situation the fact that he was going to go back to the UK just for a couple of days then flats California he he. He really didn't know what to expect when he got there so I asked him first of all what it was like when he got to think like nothing was was any different at the Stop I actually went to San Diego for two is a few members at the club. She said to me all year. We're not going down to endure wells issue because of the corona virus and I mean always on our. I guess you know they were. They were older members to in. This guys says always decided that Mr Tikey precautions and we go down there and as I'm sure you're not a tennis player not the most You know pretty isolated in their own world and no already set much until I think it was. It was pretty much the die before qualifying stay there was there was is that it was GONNA get cooled off. Alan. Yes big big room Sula started unethical cooled off for the the die before Listen to the Health Minister of I think it was California or cut Coachella Valley and he said that he might have statement about into wells. I would be the guy who would be calling off sedan Sort of happened. It was all very vivid surprise really but then at that I. It wasn't so much surprise if she knows all the severity of Then not long after the Miami consolation when it was a pandemic what was the week. What's a week been like since then because they were they were letting everybody stay? Weren't they in use Indian Wells for an stay in the the accommodation? What did you? What was it like being around the other players at that time? Yeah well I mean we started like there is a few few different people two different things so that was advised to not leave the country because remodel belt guest in back in and then does seem like he was defeating the jets. If people could have committed that would have been Miami really and then it was all pretty strange. You know I didn't make didn't like practicing one was we? Were supposed to be playing. It seemed you know pretty no atmosphere. There was no saying it was terrible so applies to be to be honest and I find it pretty hard too noisy to be motivated but everyone was brought to which was destroyed thing. I've always prided everyone was eating together. So it was all this. It was all surreal India wiles. And then as said when we heard W hite sugarcoated upon Devon. Everybody was booking flights that I think you know the wrong. Who was on the Wolf for Miami? And obviously they've called on the ADP side. They pretty much immediately called a six week. Holt to the toll now. That's that's a pretty far reaching impact for so many people I mean in even in our little ecosystem of tennis. Yeah you've had a good a good start to the good last year so you'll have built up some some finance that you can. You can weather a period like that. But not everybody's in that both I would imagine no I guess not a not much anyone can really do is right now. It's it's a terrible situation for everybody you know thankfully no one just yet tested positive Well not as far as I know. That's my thing is to keep everybody healthy. I think that's the reason why the tournaments have been I think consoled in on the six week pulls to the Tool the tournament it's You know obviously a difficult time for everybody involved like just said you know even dancer. People Work Torments Aichi sponsored of player? Who is a my fly? And he wasn't sure she was getting paid or not. You know which is the end of the day. That's what everybody wants to have it as they go to to work to get paid. Because I have stuff to pay for the livelihood. Juno Dot Com. Mr Bill could fail in for for anyone. Don't know if you're going to get paid in the NFC can't for everybody. Ron and in Great Britain and the world. Yeah I mean you. You obviously had a period of time out the game. We we know the reasons for I remember you talking about the time that you found it quite hard sort of just not having the purpose in a way is it. Is that something that you feel may might help you in a way that you've at least had experience of that. If if we're able to to practice I don't see I. If I were to practices stuff adultery the six weeks been been that much of an issue for me personally You know we. We can't change if we went tool could go onto Daylight Spain I think. The chargers for For everybody really literally doing nothing because it is a that will be. I will be pretty tough I as you know one guy who's in Madrid and he died on lockdown.

Rivals in Montreal's Bagel Wars unite to fight for their ovens

"I think of Montreal's I think of Bagels if you've ever been inside one of the city's iconic Bagel res I want you to close your eyes and think about it right now I bet you can smell it. Today's story though goes beyond the smells and tastes. The BAGEL is woven into the fabric of Montreal's cultural and religious history and to institutions institutions in particular at the heart of all of these family businesses make bagels in a way unique to the city. They're famous for it and they do it using huge wood burning ovens and they're located right in the middle of residential neighborhoods and in the era of environmental awareness mess. You might guess where this is going. Well it appears that bagels and pizza and barbecue. Chicken have been put on notice in Montreal. The city has plans to crack back down on wood ovens in restaurants in restaurants that use charcoal might be affected as well. The city of Montreal says it won't actually force in the ICONIC BAGEL institutions to shut down their ovens but they are going to prevent any new businesses from operating the same way and what the year long controversy over for the future of wood. Burning Ovens has forced us to grapple with is this. What is Montreal without Montreal bagels? How do certain types of foods come to define the city and what happens? When the way you make? Those foods becomes a hazard Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Dan Baluyevsky is the New York. Times candidate correspondent based in Montreal. Aw Not far from the bakeries. Hey Dan good morning first of all I got to ask you because this is a question that will set up the rest of this interview. Are you a Fairmont Bagel guy or or a sandbox bagel Guy You're trying to get me deported from Montreal. I mean this is a religious question in the city so I'm not sure I can pray. Give my allegiance allegiance on plays but I can say that the key to winning my heart over a Bagel is serving me one hot right out of the oven and I think that wins the day when it it comes to be versus. So what happens when you start asking montrealers about bagels and you tell them. This is for the New York Times. Well Eagles on a culinary faultline and Montreal choosing between San Diego or or fairmount as choosing between you know the mets or the Yankees in New York City But in general montrealers are very proud of their bagels. It's one of the few things that Unites Quebecers so I think when the New York Times shows interest in bagels people are generally delighted by the global interest. One of the things you did that fascinated me. Because I've been to to both of these places and and did not quite assimilate the history is how far these two institutions go back. Can you sort of talk a little bit about the history of solutions. Sure one of the most fascinating things about this story was learning a history of both bagel places which are part of the social fabric of the city of it also part of the Jewish history of Montreal so fairmount Bagel which claims to be the oldest is owned by softened family and Orleans last Schaaf Min's uh-huh grandfather came over from Kiev in Nineteen nineteen originally had a Bagel stand in area of the city known as AL also Known as the main and it was a big place alleyway near Schwartz's and other iconic Jewish or Delhi and you know generations later three generations. Later Irwin now runs fairmount senior. which is a few blocks away in this hipster neighborhood? COBB called Mile. End was founded by Holocaust survivor and another colleague I believe in the nineteen fifties and I fifty seven and a young Italian immigrant. Boy Roy Called Joe Montana came to roll bagels when he was twelve years old. The Holocaust survivor became like a father to him and then eventually took over the business. So it's a wonderful kind of amylum of multicultural Montreal. Is there a rivalry between the two. It's sort of I think one of the funniest darkest comments someone made about my stories that it's not so much mets versus Yankees a Sunni versus Shia There amount or or or a sandwich or I mean. Obviously it's over the top analogy but yes. There's an incredible rivalry Both claim to be the oldest day. We'll play some Montreal Well same eater takes issue with the fact that fairmount says it's the oldest because fairmount was closed for a time as if that wasn't enough fairmount says it all biggles are perfectly symmetrical and the owner of San Diego says nonsense. All bagels are like snowflakes. Each one has a different shape and then turn Thurmond also has the bragging rights of saying that it's bagels. Were the first to go to outer space. Because the owner of FAIRMONT's cousin is a Canadian asteroid who took sixteen gene. Sesame seed Bagels to trash all space station several years ago so the rivalry is pretty intense but also cordial what is so special. So about Montreal bagels in particular like just as foodstuffs. What makes them different? You know I have to say Having lived in London Paris Brussels you stumble Prague Rock and massive Foodie. I mean there's this. This wonderful alchemy Montreal Bagel. That's hard to replicate anywhere else. In the world you know in particular compared to other bagels. Is London a Toronto The key to the Montreal Bagel is that it is boiled in honey infused water before being big and a wood burning oven and and you know it's just absolutely delicious heated. Hot Out of the bag and You know it's one of those beautiful Montreal moments can you put your finger on on any Taste or texture differences between the two Montreal Bakeries I think the main thing I've noticed is that the same bagels listen to have bigger holes than the fairmount Bagel bagels. Perhaps back or when Schloffmans claim that they're more symmetrical maybe they'll be more dainty looking the The semi ones look do. Look I guess if you use the snowflake analogy they all do seem to be a bit different looking and a bit. Bigger having a decent recent more girth but people have done blind taste tests and On able to distinguish between the two. We wanted to talk to you today because there's so much history and cultural significance here but there's also change coming. Potentially what is happening now to Bagels in Montreal. Well the UH link of the story was the fact that Neighbors of both David places and the hipster mile and neighbor the neighborhood near the plateau. Montreal are complaining about the pollution caused by the Wood Burning Evans which produce you know particularly which can lead to respiratory problems respiratory problems like asthma and produce pollutants like benzene. So neighbors are unhappy. Some neighbors are unhappy about the environmental implications of wood-burning Ivan's CD's considering a number of things one of which is passing you know a bylaw that would would force a wood burning oven businesses to install filters there's and so it's created this kind of Bagel battle or bigger war if you will between people who want to safeguard the lower and cultural bagel making and environmentalists who argue that the bagels come to press the environmental implications are too dire and that would bring up should be phased out. This is maybe a dumb. I'm question because there's there's only a few of these places do we have any actual evidence beyond anecdotal That these ovens are are causing harm. Yes I mean You know it all it all depends on the degree of harm but there is scientific evidence that you know these ovens do to produce particularly. It's that they do emit benzene and you know there's a real health and environmental hazards however one must calibrate that against other you know more egregious forums of pollution and climate change causing laurie trucks and advantages and excetera. So I guess everything is relative but now the CD itself has done. Yeah studies showing that the Devon's harmful what is this like as a political issue For the city given all the culture that we've just mentioned well I think it's a IT'S A. It's a very sensitive issue with the CD bagels in particular are so much a part of the Cultural Lor also The Portuguese immigrant community of Montreal before having rotisserie chicken places. A tiny community has pizzeria. So I mean it's not just the Bible so there's an economic point two eight. It

Top things to do in Berlin

"I. I'd like to welcome the show. Audrey Scott and Daniel knoll from an cornered market DOT COM or at welcome back to the show I should say and we brought Audrey and and Daniel back to talk about Berlin Germany Audrey and Daniel Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having us back and I say welcome back to the show but I. I don't know if I could come up with all the Times you've been the show. We certainly done wonderful episodes together on prog and Bangladesh are the two that really stand out for me. I think there may maybe some other ones and there certainly some this. We can travels in there also but I put a list of all the shows they have been on in the show notes so we don't have to waste time with that but we have not covered Berlin Lynn Germany in quite a long time. I was really surprised how long it had been more than a decade since we've talked about a rather rapidly changing city Berlin has changed a lot lot since we covered it the first time in the show for sure and you guys happened to live there now. Yeah we've actually called Berlin are home now for about seven years. It's hard to believe Aleve and even within that time it's changed quite a lot so if we go back over a decade yeah. There's been a lot of changes well so this seemed like a really good excuse to have two of my favorite guests back on the show. Why should someone think about going to Berlin? Well it it certainly seems to be enjoying an another up surgeon ovulating. Correct me if I'm wrong on the statistics. I think it's the third most popular destination in Europe. And it's interesting because Berlin on the surface is is not a traditional European destination meaning. It doesn't have preserved old town like Prague Nick or even like many of the other incredible credible cities in Europe but when it has a has its dynamism feel to it and creativity and energy and so people don't really come to Berlin to see Z.. Beautiful old buildings there are still a few that remain. There's obviously really interesting history here but it's more for its creative field for its neighborhoods spor. There's also has a really big party scene for those who like clubbing. It's more about the feel of the place will. Then I think the other two most popular cities than would would be London and Paris. I believe you're talking about and compared to the two of them it's also had a reputation for being less expensive low. I don't know if that's still true. I think Jewish rush to a great degree. It is having just visited London. I think we can. We can vouch for that London. Right still a great city but yeah so yes certainly your dollar euro or whatever you can be carrying goes a little bit further and I think it's just a different city. Virginia from what Adriana said before I think when people come away their struck with the difficulty to articulate why Berlin sticks with them in a way that it does in the word they often use five. I love the divider that city. Such an interesting vibe that the atmosphere and I think a lot of s to do with the fact that religion is in a constant state of Flux Fox and perhaps in a constant state of Renaissance reimagining itself will in you mention concentrate of luck so the first time I was in Berlin. We've talked about this on. The show was a year after the wall fell and the the heart of the city. The center of the activity was Kurfurstendamm. Turn down on the western side and you could still see the bullet holes in the walls on. What was East Germany? You could hardly find any trace of the wall but you wouldn't meet. You didn't need it to tell what had been East. Germany was still fairly drab on that side of in a lot of the buildings and things I think the the last time I was back in a completely flipped the vibrant activity was where it traditionally was in the eastern part of the city buttered standard that continues continues to change since I have been there. Yeah I mean. The city is constantly changing in Berlin is a very neighborhood focused city so the neighborhoods are always experience in different levels of renaissance also in their hip when they're not hit but for especially after the wall fell East Berlin. What was formerly east? Berlin was the hub hub for heart for artists and the mayor actually was rather smart. He said we have all these really big industrial buildings. We have all this space and actually opened up four artists for basically like squatter communities and art studios and stuff and so that attracted a lot of artists in creative types to the city in. So you still feel let today but some of the traditional areas where that was like Mitte has now become a bit too expensive a little bit too gentrified now. Those artists communities are going a little bit more. Let's say towards the edges where there still is available space will emit a would be middle so literally the middle of the city. Yeah it's the middle of the city but it was the heart of former East Berlin and all the neighborhoods have changed quite a bit like we live in Nikon in the south and our neighborhood. We talked to Berliners who grew up appear in their thirties forties. Saying when I was young you never went there. That was considered a bad place to go. Someone joked it was like the Harlem like in the bad days but but now it's a vibrant community. We've got museums and galleries. But also it's still has this connection to its roots. which is a worker community as as well as an immigrant community? So it's this interesting dynamic between a little bit of gentrification which is a big issue in Berlin right now but it still has its soul in terms of the working man every day. Many hood is well excellent. Well let's start to put some structure on. That's what kind of itinerary would you recommend for someone who's coming to Berlin especially for the first time time. Okay well that really depends on the number of day. Well let's target. Let's talk about a week for Berlin and day trips from Berlin. I think the first piece of advice that we might give to. Someone has to understand that Berlin. Is I believe approximately three hundred sixty miles square miles in terms of landmass. So you're not gonna be able to cover the entire city so I think the trick is to figure out what are the core elements that you'd like to see in Berlin East and west and then maybe to identify a a couple of non-core that are out there in some of the neighborhoods so in terms of some of the usual suspects in. You're looking at things like checkpoint Charlie in the Checkpoint Charlie Museum which definitely definitely a although it is touristy at something that we often recommend to people particularly on those days that are not good weather days at the museum. Actual checkpoint appoint Charlotte's it's rather touristy and people are posing for photos but the museum is actually it's a private initiative and it has all sorts of stories and photos of life rush when the wall was up as well as stories of escape. And it's quite well done. Well let's dig into that a little more so checkpoint Charlie one of the famous checkpoints between East in West Berlin. There's the little guardhouse there which is a reconstruction because they tore down the guardhouse ray quickly after they down the wall and then realized Oh hey we we have this wonderful memorable spot so they. They built it back up again but the checkpoint Charlie Museum was there during the time of the wall all and it started as a private collection of memorabilia about escapes predominantly from Berlin and. I think it's a fascinating museum Ziam. Although I would have to say the last time I was there. It had a feel of grandma's attic in terms of organization. I don't know if that has changed. Excel Excel J. One of the most amazing wonderful collections. So hazardously arranged but you can see where someone took a surfboard. Gordon holiday it out so they could put people inside or cars with secret. Compartments were people who made balloons to fly over the wall. It's a fascinating collection especially in terms of Cold War. History doesn't Nice job of addressing cold order history from the stamp on Berlin that it also digs into some of the Cold War history elsewhere so with over revolution in Prague so the rising Hungary so it provides a broader context. Not just what happened here in Berlin which I think is really really

The Vienna Woods Killer AKA the Poet of Death - Part 2

"Week we covered jacqueline travers mysterious childhood and how he went from Patty criminal to murderer after receiving a life sentence in prison he was able to transform public perception about him through his memoir but once he secured his release he immediately began killing again today. We'll conclude our exploration into the poet of death. Johann Oh Han Jack wound vaguer while in prison for the murder your of eighteen year old Margaret Shaeffer Jack Vega wrote and published his nineteen eighty-four Memoir Vega Foia or purgatory in it. He largely embellishes relishes a horrendous childhood living with his grandfather due to his excessive hyperbole. The memoir helped Jack cultivate an image that garnered sympathy sympathy from Australia's literary elite and prison reform activists. He became a celebrated author writing short stories plays and and children's stories to go along with his bestselling autobiography he successively trick them all into thinking that prison had rehabilitated him in nineteen ninety ninety. Jack Otter Vicar was released upon his release. He continued his charade as a changed man he became a celebrity giving book readings things in interviews but on September Fifteenth Nineteen Ninety just four months after he regained his freedom. Jack began a whole new murder spree spree. His first victim was thirty year old. Blanca botch Gavaa in Prague this week will cover Jack's continuous murder spree throughout route nineteen ninety and nineteen ninety-one has he moved from Austria to California then we'll cover the international efforts to bring Jack to justice. Thanks in large part are to a retired detective. One of the only ones who saw through Jack's reformed literary Genius Act after Jack Murdered Blunk Bochco vow while interviewing sex workers in Prague he returned to Vienna and began production on a play the piece was entitled Dungeon and served as a sequel to purgatory instead of just staying in Vienna. Jack was taking the play on tour. He was hoping for it to become his first big literary success post-prison. Unfortunately it was neither a critical nor financial success and the lack of appraise angered Jack October twenty six one thousand nine hundred ninety while Jack was in grottes possibly with the tour thirty nine year old sex worker Brune Hilda Hilda Massa disappeared in Austria. Sex Work is legal and highly regulated women must register with the police and are not allowed to begin working until the age of nineteen. The authorities are constantly in the know when it comes to the women working on the streets so when police learned of the disappearance of Brune held Hilda Masa it gave them a great deal of concern as the police scratch their heads over Broom Hilda's disappearance Jack in the tour traveled to Dornbirn a small town four hundred miles west of Vienna near the border of Austria and Switzerland on December fifth one thousand nine hundred ninety according to biographer John Leaks while in Dornbirn Dornbirn Jack called a friend of his and complained about the tepid response dungeon was receiving throughout the tour. The friend recalled that Jack was completely arrate. She tried to calm him down but he hung up on her still in a rage that night jack room the the streets of brigands seven miles north of Dornbirn to cool down. He needed to find a way to blow off some steam. Sadly the victim of Jack's rage would be thirty one year old sex sex worker. Heidi Marie Hammer Heidemarie vanished from her usual spot of the night of December fifth on New Year's Eve a couple of hikers making their way through the woods outside the city discovered Heidemarie Body. She was partially naked exposed from the waist down wrapped around her neck was is her pantyhose which had been used to strangle her to death a few days later on January Fifth Nineteen ninety-one Brune Hilda masses partially naked body body was discovered in the woods by a couple of kids playing there there had been a year and a half gap between the murders of Meriva Horvat and Margaret Shaeffer now while Jack was only waiting a month in between kills it appeared as Jack was evolving Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please I note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thanks Greg last week. We discussed how jack suffered from narcissistic personality disorder however since his release from prison it is possible that Jackson. PD evolved into malignant narcissism malignant narcissism is a blending of NPD with antisocial personality disorder as Rhonda Freeman PhD writes in her article for psychology she today people with this condition have extremely fragile egos and self esteem they can have occurrences of unstable impulsive or aggressive aggressive behavior. It's quite possible that the poor reception of Dungeon hurt Jax Egos so much that drove him to kill while on the road and at the start of the New Year nineteen ninety-one Jackson the process of moving on from the failures of Dungeon by focusing on his next play scream of fear scream of fear was a short play about AIDS Jackass said lost friends to the disease while in prison throughout the eighties during the AIDS crisis he became increasingly worried about the rising death toll and wanted to bring awareness to it scream of fear premiered in Vienna on February February seventeenth nineteen ninety-one it then travelled to seven other cities across Australia while we don't have confirmed proof that scream of fear was met met with the same response as Dungeon. It is quite possible that it did because while the play was on Tour Jack Struck again on March seventh seventh nineteen ninety-one sex worker Alfreda shrimp disappeared from her corner in Grottes Austria about one hundred twenty miles south of Vienna Elfriede has case ace proved slightly different from Jack previous murders a few days after a free to disappeared. Jack called off Rita's parents and taunted them. What made the calls halls even more nefarious was that the families phone number was unlisted in the phone book. It's possible that check forestall free to give them the number just before he strangled her

The Vienna Woods Killer AKA the Poet of Death

"We begin our dive into the notorious. Austrian serial killer Dr Johann Jack Survey Ker known as the Vienna Woods killer and the poet of Death Jack Hunter Vaguer was always a sadistic and violent man but for years he was able to mask dark side by presenting himself as an author of poet and journalist in one thousand nine hundred seventy six. Jack was convicted of murdering Margaret Shaffer and received a light sentence by the Austrian courts. Margaret was Jack Second Victim. However charges were never brought for his first suspected murderer but while he was in prison Jack took the time to educate himself he began to write short stories and poems it culminated in his bestselling memoir purgatory. His memoir caught the attention of Austria's elite and petitions soon wet around begging for Jack's release in one thousand nine hundred fifteen eighteen years into his sentence. Jack Vega was set free and his celebrity continued to flourish but just four months into his freedom. Jack's urged to kill sex workers revealed itself and for the next year Jack Prowl the streets of Vienna Prague and Los Angeles strangling sex workers with their their own underwear and dumping the bodies in the woods he was caught in nineteen ninety-two leaving behind him a trail of twelve bodies though there is speculation that he killed even more women who have never been identified Jack Interviewers life even at its beginning was marred by violence when World War Two ended in nineteen forty-five allied forces from the US Britain France and the USSR remained in Germany and Austria. The allies occupied the two countries as they began the long process to rebuild the occupation lasted for ten years ending in one thousand nine hundred fifty five during those ten years the German and Austrian birth rates spiked the procreation wasn't entirely between German and Austrian citizens instead many young women found themselves pregnant with the children of allied allied soldiers many children born during this time period had no idea who their fathers were in Germany roughly four hundred thousand babies had allied light fathers and in Austria that numbers around Thirty Thousand Jack Vegas would be counted among those thirty thousand in nineteen fifty fifty two ratio owned travailler. A young beautiful country girl took a trip to Trieste Italy while on this trip she met an American soldier hurt named Jack Becker. Unfortunately we know very little about their relationship but we can make some guesses based on the time period the aftermath the war forced many women to engage in survival sex work in order to make ends meet even worse. Many of these women were sexually assaulted by Allied soldiers. Either of these could have happened to Theresa. It's possible that Theresa was forced to engage in sex work to survive but it it is also possible that her time with Jack was simply a passionate fling one that resulted in pregnancy while pregnant to ratio returned to Austria and struggled to find work. She turned to petty crime like fraud and theft as a way to provide for herself in the weeks before giving birth to Jack back to ratio was arrested for fraud however for some unexplained reason Teresa was released. She then travelled to Yudin Burg Austria and on August Sixteenth Nineteen fifty gave birth to Johann. Jack faker named after his American father. Please note that much of what is known about Jack's. It's life comes from his memoir purgatory or the trip to jail report of a guilty man and it must be taken with a grain of salt written while he was imprisoned during the nineteen eighties. Jack's writing was solely intended to garner sympathy from those who read it Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode assode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thanks Greg as an adult it. Jack Unterweger was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder. A couple of aspects of narcissistic personality disorder are exaggerating achievements mints and talents as well as having an exaggerated sense of self importance much of this comes through in the way. Jack describes the harsh upbringing. He faced as a child wild. Jack claims that his mother was a sex worker but nothing has ever been found to confirm. She made her living as one. The general consensus is that she worked as a barmaid and waitress Chris. It is possible that while she worked as a barmaid she engaged in sex work from time to time or that she told Jack that's how he like so many others at that time was conceived saved or it could be pure fabrication it could when Jack was two years old. Theresa was arrested once again for theft and sent to jail. Jack was then sent to live with his grandfather fair demand visor in Carinthia South Austria from this point on Jack claims to have had a terrible childhood. According to Jack Fernand visor was an abusive drunk who forced him to act like a quote court fool a slave. We've educated by grandfather to be a fraud accomplice injects version of events he was barely given enough food to eat or enough clothes to keep warm and according to Jack he had no mother figure around instead a rotation of sex workers in lovers frequented the tiny hut decades later Charlotta. Our Ferdinand stepdaughter would protest that all of Jack's claims about his grandfather were a pack of lies Charlotta had lived with Sheridan ad in the same house a decade and a half earlier in the late thirties. Charlotta never disputed that Fernand had a rough exterior a product product of his country upbringing but she believed the rest of Jack's descriptions. Were fabrications according to Star Lotte her own mother. Maria Springer lived with Jack and Ferdinand for about six years beginning in nineteen fifty two Maria helped raise the boy disputing the claim that only sex workers unfair demands random lovers around as Jack got older. He became something of a burden. He was very stubborn and manipulative. Charlotte claims that he would come up with clever schemes to get whatever he wanted. Jack's attitude soon proved too much Maria Springer and she left in nineteen eighteen fifty eight when Jack was about eight two months later Austrian child services took Jack Away from fair to net and placed him with Fernand sister. Mr The exact reasons why jack was taken away from Fernand are unclear. It's possible that Jack's delinquency and fair demands inability to control troll it were responsible or it's possible that fair. Dan was a little too rough with check now that Maria wasn't around to contain him. Charlotta our does believe that it was during those two months alone with Fair Dinette that the myth of the overly abusive grandfather began in addition to genetics a child's child's environment can play a key role in person forming narcissistic personality disorder or NPD according to the Mayo Clinic in most cases a child who was pampered or received excessive praise could develop the disorder however a consistently negative environment can also lead to NPD.

Lord Bilimoria on the Business of Beer

"Now in the u._k. In particular you will struggle to find an indian restaurant saronto that a dozen serve cobra beer launched by lord karen bilimoria three decades ago the brand success story and is now exported to over a forty countries around the world however lord bilimoria entrepreneurial passan's being all without bumps along the way he joins me in the studio to talk talk about the lessons he's learned how the business of beer exchanging and the brand s- plans for the future but i he explains how the whole story actually begins dennis with bono sticks. That was my first business venture. Because i played polo for cambridge we beat oxford <hes> in the <hes> and i then organized and led the first <hes> indian tour for cambridge university's team and i came back with some sample poodle sticks and i started selling them and before i knew it i was in business and selling them to lily early wide to harrods to the queen's <hes> sadler's and we were in business and that was a precursor because my big idea when i was a student at cambridge was to bring out a beer from india india a beer that would satisfy both lager and ale drinkers alike because i i found i hated physi- english loggers and i loved english british ale but i found that the air was too bitter and too heavy and <hes> didn't accompany food at all older. It was very smooth when you're drinking zone and i found on the physi- loggers were just awful drink on their own and just did not go well with the food because they were bloating so that's been the idea evolved while i was a student at cambridge to come up with this bear that sits in between a logger nail refreshment for lager smoothens a financial combined they would appeal to all types of beer drinkers anywhere in the world have globally appealing taste aced and most importantly a beer that would accompany or food including indian food and curry so what were the first actual steps then in launching that business launching cobra for i was the lucky introduction to india's biggest independent brewery which again the biggest stroke of luck had the best brew master in india a young dynamic brewer from india who'd spent six years in the czech republic in prague had from prague university was a biochemist and knew all about brewing beer had worked one of the top czech beers pilsen during his internship he knew all about i knew nothing about bring beer but i had this idea and i sat in the laboratory with him in bangalore and conveyed this idea to with thirty samples of bottled title beer from england carefully selected saying this is what i like about this year. This is what i don't like about this beer trying to convey this extra smoother less gassy taste of cobra which led to very complex recipe which is what cobras and we've got this craft beer boom in in this country at the moment. We're covers is an ultimate craft beer. It's called malted barley rice rice maize wheat. It's double fermented sco three varieties of bavarian hops. It's a really delicate complex now. On the highest idea we should know more about beer back came the day when you were approaching this brew. No i knew what i wanted. I knew the tastes that i wanted as a drinker as a consumer and i saw that gap in the market and and sure enough when we brought out cobra it did demonstrate straight away that it went incredibly well with food we ninety-nine percent reorders from day one and my hi dream was to produce the finest ever in beer then to to make that a global beer brand and <hes> once you get those reorders in those early days it gives you the confidence to go go on extrapolate that into a global beer brand well. You lost in one thousand nine hundred nine and he didn't have much money for advertising partly due to your student debt. So what do you think think were the main two weeks. How did you manage to get your bottles in restaurants. Then i find that when you start and businesses and entrepreneurs and i think any entrepreneur would probably doubly identify with this you have to cross what school the credibility gap that nobody knows you. Nobody knows your brand. You have zero credibility. So so how do you convince people to supply to finance you to buy from you when you have zero credibility and i find that people will do those do things if you are passionate and have faith and belief in yourself and in your product and your brand and in your idea because that gives is people the confidence and the fates to trust you to give you a chance and i always believed i had something that was going to be different and that was going to be better and that was going to change the marketplace. How many respirators were trying to say no to you. Oh the the word you come across more than anything when you start is a very short word and it's a two letter word and and it's no would you like to buy my no. It's just a no and you have to make note a yes and you have to convert obstacles into opportunities and i could give you example after example of how we had to convert obstacles into opportunities for example we could only import the big double size six fifty bottles from from india because the brewery said you're probably going to fail and we only produce six fifty emma bottles even in india to this day that ninety percent bear sales in india are sold in a standard six fifty. I'm double size bottle and they said if you want more bottles it means ordering different modes change parts for our bottling line investment by us. If you're around in one year's time we'll give you a small bottles but first prove yourself so the big bottles and you go to the restaurants in the u._k. At that time they were i used to small bottles or draft beer now. We couldn't draft all the way from bangalore and the restaurants that what we're gonna do with these big bottles and you convert that obstacle into an opportunity and you say well. That is the way sold in idiots. You'll centric way of nydia and it's a double sized borough so when you're selling you're selling to c._o. Selling more beer and then you win. You serve indian food at the tables often. Your customers was we'll share dishes in the same way they can share this bottle and using a sharing concept you'll find you will sell more and more food and then what is more people at other tables. We'll see how what are they. Drinking looks like a bottle of wine knows auto bottom lines bottle outright and it spreads like wildfire and your weight is also leave the bottles on the table. It frees him up to do other the work so everyone wins your business. Your business grew exponentially during the first years but you'll be since journey didn't go oh all without bumps for example the year two thousand eight hundred. It's difficult for you wasn't it. I always say that <hes> <hes> success is a relative term and success is not a destination. It's a journey and most entrepreneurs will will say to you. It's a very difficult tough and challenging done journey with lots of ups and downs and i nearly lost my business three times and the last time was in two thousand nine <hes> during the financial crisis in the great recession when we nearly lost it. We came very close losing everything and each one of those times that i lost my business often. It was things out of the blue very few people in the world. Very few of the economists in the world predicted due to the financial crisis. There was less than a handful around the world who predicted it so when things come out of the blue it's how you deal with those crises and yes you can look back and one of my favorite things thanks good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment so yes. I made mistakes looking back on it with probably had far too much debt. I i did not anticipate the financial crisis. I probably hide some of the wrong people but the things that got me through each of those crises was having a very strong brand. Cobra grew was having the support of my loyalty members who were excellent and my family my wife who stood by me through the ups and downs where i met one year after i started cobra and also the third thing was always doing things the right way with integrity so it's better to fail doing the right thing then to succeed doing the wrong thing. What do human points equity will the best definition of the word integrity and people will say doing the right thing acting honestly <hes> the best definition i ever ever heard was from the archbishop of canterbury ruin williams when he was archbishop canterbury who came to visit the zorostrian center and i'm patron of disaster and community here in the u._k. Given smallest communities in the world and i welcomed him as a patron and then he made his speech and he said lord bill morris has used the word integrity twice in his speech speech and he said the word integrity comes from the latin and greek words intiga integrum and he says is the restaurant parsi communities renowned for his integrity and the word integrity means wholeness. You cannot practice integrity. If as an individual you're fragmented in front of the light you can only practice integrity if your whole and complete and i've never forgotten that and <hes> we've always tried to in in british play with a straight bat and i've found that helped get me through the crises

You're comfortable and it's really hard to do that. All the time i think too it's like you. We research a lot. We're doing all this planning. We want to have like the per trip and i get that people don't want their money to go to waste. They wanna have a good trip and they want to enjoy it and i wanna make memories and they wanna take photos when what i just want to enjoy their time but us tours that i think critical which is you started with. You want to have perfect trip and finished with you and those are would you very different this to me at least and i i think i run into this problem not travel nearly as much as basically everything of my life which is letting perfect be the enemy of good and and trying to over planet. Make sure that you know when i launch a new product or when i do report for somebody that's got to be perfect and the reality is it just needs to be close but like it also needs to be done if you if you wait until it's perfect which you're gonna end up with is never delivering anything because it's never going to and if you're thinking about travel that way no ovation's ever going to be perfect and it's way easier and i would even argue more fun to have something go wrong and have to deal and just roll with it like okay. They lost your suitcase or you didn't get your first choice of meal on the plane or the flight attendants spilled a soda on you for any number of things like okay like that happened and then yeah what's the next thing it's gonna get better. It's going to be an enjoy it yeah or won't you want i got high place didn't enjoy but also didn't let it ruin my day. You know i'll go somewhere.

"That is either really good news really bad for me. It was a bottle of vodka week from the same guy and i had to stop that experience. I think i think i've learned a lot a- learned a lot about people to like. The bartenders at the place. I go is from the bronx. I i very rarely met people who <hes> work in manhattan that brag about the bronx and this guy is passionate about the bronx and so him he and i have really interesting discussions about local stuff and what's going on in his neighborhood and in office fascinating to me so i think like just just having that experience. It's kind of opened. My eyes a little bit. I think i've been a very leisurely traveler to where i'm like. Oh let's go see everything <hes> and i think there's good things that come from that <hes> but i i think also maybe slowing it down a little bit and being like hey. I'm just gonna go ride the subway for an hour and just see where i walk around and end up is a good thing and go to a grocery store go away and if the m._t._a.'s working particularly poorly not day you might only get three three stops or you might end up on an old one thousand nine hundred train or something you never know jason rabinowitz posted something and i was just like yeah i think they had like one hundred year old train that they pulled out of the museum to run on in line that was closed down in recently like they cleaned it up so they could run. It's crazy but <hes> i encourage people to just maybe a maybe we're doing this whole will to <unk> wrong. It's hard if it's your first trip somewhere and you want to like get the highlights and see everything and make sure you quote unquote done that city entity. It's hard to say you know what i'm actually going to skip going to move. I'm gonna go to paris. I'm just not gonna go in any museums. That's hard for me but okay. Let's it's not hard for me. I still never been living living. I've been to paris <hes> musee orsay. I'd find much less. It's quieter. It's nicer. It's used to be a train station so that's awesome. It's way less crowded anyway but also just like museums aren't necessarily thing but i the i i certainly understand the concept of gotta do the city. We've gotta hit the highlights. These are all all the things you're supposed to say. Yeah you know until my sixth or seventh trip to paris. I'd never gone up to soccer and in some ways that was a good thing because the first time i went and one of the guys accosted me to buy something i almost punched him because he grabbed me so maybe it was good that i hadn't been earlier and i might have punched him on his trip when i was you know less sedated but at the same time i now when i go into town online i've learned what i like about <hes> gary nord and that neighborhood and i'm pretty comfortable around there and i spent more time in that area and that means staying close to a soccer cougar and going up there from time to time so i got it becomes a little bit of learning what you like and finding a neighborhood..

Daily security assessment needed in Ebola areas: WHO

"This is an academy with UN news amid reports of massacres in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Ebola hits Ituri province, World, Health Organization, workers continue to risk their lives to prevent the disease from spreading deeper into rural areas in an interview with your news is Daniel Johnson, Dr Ibrahim, Sosa fall, WHO's assistant, director, general for emergency response explains how the agency operates in this dangerous region recorded order the over two thousand cases in there. See so far one thousand five hundred for people died from the disease as important to realize dining, outbreak in mass appeal the men hotspot was in turmoil and cutter met progress. Big urban areas close to three million people. There you have adapted out such to go down to the health at us to make sure that we have teams in every health, add on now we have seen in Prague Zahn, only spongy cases, but we need to be very careful. Because even one single case of Ebola disease. So now we have new hotspot in rural at a mobile co whereas started before, and we need to break this, virtuous cycle to make sure that we're not got have cases. But of course you're talking about my black amandime a- and other places. Even small villages now haven't seen ever before. What's your access like given the security is still a big problem? You've said it before attacks on health workers, March, April, may continuing now secured cessation, is very volatile because you have, you know, dozens of arms group saw every day, we have to assess the situation before moving to the ground so you can have days where you don't have access to some vunerable population. So it's really important continue working with you, and scallop, wary of new pillows, focusing on company engagement on security and political dialogue to make sure that we have the require environment implemented behalf intervention. What can you tell us about the new therapeutics that are now being used injury province so far over one thousand? People have been treated using the Neutra politics on when people come early enough to the center, the success where over seventy percent. But when they come lead, you can see that we are around sixty seven percent of Patel.

But you said it's been stopped how you managing with the amount of people crossing the border every day, which is how many thousands, so for Uganda's three cases, we talked about people who crossed from jersey, but there is no look toss mission or secondary. Transmission in Uganda, but remember to identify the contracts and contests of contact to monitor them unvaccinated them, but I was saying during market day, you have over twenty thousand people, causing only one point of entry. So y'all system for screening in Uganda on the border with other countries, just important part of the response. And how many people have screened unfounded? Are we have skin over six million people? And we have found nineteen cases at the border. Entry. So very important to continue maintaining the system. I will have you screen, the sixty eight million people who have skin six million around the border point for the four countries. Uganda Burundi one down south Sudan, and we have team working almost twenty four hours a day. You confident your top of this in Uganda confident that top, but there is that because people continue to cross, we need to continue to do the point of anti checking, and we continue to think the several at all over at the SE, addresses, too early to say on that we have impacted timbale and cut twat by we have new hot spots in on Monday man suggestion is not yet under contract.

Perovskite LEDs begin to shine

"Now we have Robert Service Steph writer at science and he's here to talk about perofrmance gates which I'm sure I've heard once a week for the past five years, the word, Perov skates. They have a lot of education's. And in this case, we're gonna talk about their use in LED's in light emitting diodes, but I typically hear them associated with solar energy, right? Bob rewritten, quite a number of stories about fraud, Skype in the past, and prostitutes are a large collection of materials that share a common crystal structure, and these materials have been exciting and very exciting for the research community in recent years, because they've proven to be very efficient solar cell materials. So they're really good at absorbing sunlight and then converting that energy into electrically. But we're, we're talking about LED's, right? What this is kind of the reverse you feed energy, or electricity or form of light energy or something into. These materials, and then they convert that into specific colors of light that they emit. And so this is what LED's do LED's are very common in the modern daily life, our lights have our TV's have are made of them are cellphone displays have LED's what's an LED it's not Ross guides right now. What's in there, right? So there's quite a number of different materials that are used in LA days. There's a whole class of inorganic compounds that are commonly used in lighting fixtures. LED lights would buy from Home Depot. For example, I believe would be made with those materials, whereas in our cell phone displays and in many TV's that have LED TV displays many of those or Ganic materials. So those are nice because they can be processed differently. They, they have different advantages than were at sort of entered this whole picture, is that Ross guides are really simple to make that use very commonly available. Starting materials and then they can be processed very easily at low temperature. They don't require being grown under vacuum hood or anything. Right. Very complex. And so it opens the door towards making very large area lights or larger displays with bronchitis. That would also be quite cheap. Whereas the other ones are more complex manufacturing process for solar cells. Yes. That's correct. So, for example of Liz silicon solar, so you have to grow the silicon ingot and then which is a purified silicon, and they have to slice it. And then arrange it, and so with props guys, you can basically just brew up a liquid solution of the starting materials than spread it out over surface. And then you heat it up, very gently in materials crystallize out of that process is actually a description of the crystal shape. It could have many different components in this crystal is that how they would make a display. A out of process that was different colors. They use different minerals within the same display. Yes, in short, if you want to make visible light display, right? And you wanna develop the primary colors red green and blue and then by combining different levels of those colors, you can make the other colors with rainbow with Brodsky's you tune the color based on the chemical composition of the props guide itself. So they actually have a different recipe of the product for green than they do for red, and then they do for blue, you know, the idea would be to make individual Nanno size components of one recipe. And then organize them in a way that makes pixels for display and one of the papers that we write about as a paper that came out last week in science advances, and it offered a way to make a pretty sophisticated display using rod sky. And they, they first synthesized their different recipes for the different colors of. The Prague skylights, and then using advanced three D printer to not only make different pixels of the different colors, but then to orient the Nanno crystals or the nanna wires in this case within each of the pixels, and so the nanna wires omit their colors better in one direction than they do another. And so those light waves oscillate with a particular favourite orientation and that's light polarization. So when you have polarized sunglasses that screen out a certain polarization as the same idea here. So light is getting omitted in a preferred direction than they use filters to select which colors of light. They wanted to see. So if you say you had products that were gonna shine red, and they were oriented with their nanna, wires facing horizontally, say, well, then you just turn your polarized or so it to horizontal then the that light would come through, and you could see it while it was at the. Same time it was blocking the other colors. And then by just turning the polarize or you could just tune whatever color you wanted to see very cool. Okay. What are some of the major advantages of using parasites in LED's, the main advantage of profits and Ellie dis is the prospects for making cheap large area, lights and displays the other thing that you've seen with processes. They've caught up inefficiency. They're, they're doing really well on the solar side has something similar happen with their ability to emit light in the LED format. The answer to your question is, yes, that's exactly what is happening now is that the a really catching up to in this case, the organic LED's by reaching that milestone, that reaches a level of performance. That is a commercial standard. What is the target efficiency for taking trinity turning into only, and where is Pasco technology along that spectrum, there's different benchmarks for different applications? For fishing Ince's. So the, the lighting technology that is used in light bulbs in homes like that. Those can actually be really quite efficient. I believe some of them around fifty percent. And then they go up from there, even higher that's really quite impressive. And, and if you've ever touched a regular incandescent light bulb, you know how hot it is. The reason is a regular incandescent light is extremely inefficient. Most of the energy in an incandescent light is converted into heat, which is why you burn your hand, if you touch them. But if you happen to touch get close to LED light in your house, they are not very hot and that's because most trinity has been converted into light. So for perhaps gates, ideally, you just wanna go as high as you can because that makes them more cost effective. It also means that if you're creating key that can have other problems that can cause breakdown of the devices. So if you're if most of your energy is going in from electrically into light than. And that's really good for the lifetime of devices as well. But certain applications can tolerate lower efficiencies. So, for example, the old led displays the organic light emitting diode displays TV's those are around twenty twenty five percent efficiency if, if I'm not mistaken there. And so certain applications can tolerate Laura officiency, if they can reach an application that the inorganic can't do or that maybe they'll be a different form factor. Maybe they'll be might be able to do it over a much larger area, which the inner Gannex can't really do easily, so there's different numbers for different applications. Why in a big issues with the process on the solar side end now on the only desire is there, not that stable, you make one and then it kinda doesn't last at last days. That's been true with both of them the solar cell manufacturers in. Researchers are really getting pretty good handle on this. Now, they're they've come up with a whole slew of technique. To make these things more robust. And also to encapsulate them in protective materials that than keep them from interacting with air or humidity in the air, which part of the things that really caused him to break down. It's still earlier days on the LED side. So I think they're still trying to get a complete handle scientifically on why these things exactly are breaking down. The other thing I would just add that the organic vitamin, there's twenty years ago, face the same problem. And, and so the research community at that time really had to grapple with how to get those materials to have a longer life. And just by virtue of the fact that we now use them all over the place. That sort of shows you that they made steady significant progress in doing that. And so there's a lot of hope that, that will happen as well with the LA days, but they have to

Sank in seven seconds. They're thinking tw-, at least twenty one or dead. All Koreans are dead. Seventy four have lived the people that had collided the another tour boat, that had collided with people don't even realize there was a collision, so, but yeah, twenty at least it looks like at least twenty one Koreans are going to be dead, and increase actually sending people there to help them try to recover the bodies, right? Was it? Six weeks. OB budapest. Don't to Prague Czechoslovakia then-vienna Embiid. Appel. Go there. For like ten days. And I saw that today Olympic. Oh, are you. Are you going to get on a tour boat? Yeah. I mean, it was a fluke was a freak of nature, and none of the Koreans were wearing their life vests right? But. They're like. People die in car wrecks every day. Mean you're not going to get in a car. But just because of boat had a fluke accident overturned in twenty people died, and it's horrible. All these people were there on vacation, who's horrible. I one of the prettiest cities in Europe, Budapest and of course, like why wouldn't I? Because it's the Danube the Danube river.

Running Science: How does running affect your brain?

"Earlier we heard about the effect running has on your body. But what does it do to your brain Henriette from Prague is associate professor of biomedical sciences at the brain institute of Florida university running has extensive effects on the brain in humans overall, the effects are very beneficial. What we see this that there's benefits for our ability to sink, manage time pay attention plan. We also see benefits for our ability to remember vents places people, and how the linked together in addition to that we see actual changes in brain structure with exercise. So there's an increase in what we call gray matter depart of the brain contains the neurons and also white matter which consists of the accent. Pathways that connect cells to each other. And we see also increase in particular in the size of the brain area. That's very important for learning memory the hippocampus. Incidentally, this is the same brain area that is often affected in near degenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease. And what happens with exercise step? There is an increase in volume of the campus also see up regulation of blood flow in that area. And in other areas of the brain in the NFC talk about things such as mood or of anxiety is that with exercise there's a reduction in executive this improvement in sleep quality on reduction stress Ramon level. So this is kind of things we know in humans. Why do we think you get these benefits in the brain with exercise? There are neuro chemical changes in the brain. So there are changes in neuro transmitters in some of these neurotransmitters are quote monal, Amy, and they include dopamine serotonin, nor epinephrine and that family of neurotransmitters strongly implicated exercise up regulates the level of mono Amy's. In addition exercise. It will also up regulate a protein called brain derived neurotrophic factor or B D N F. This is a very important growth factor in the brain, which is important for survival rows of neurons it influences their complexity it also influences Stander ability of neurons to communicate with each other. So to shown that if levels of Videon f are low that can be increasing exiled in that can also be learning memory problems. But other things we can see in terms of. A measure of executives, for example, stress for months levels such as cortisol in the bloodstream and those also go down with exercise over time.

"Well, those are some of the theories that that we've talked about in in a lot of the interviews that we had today those will be coming out in bonus content episodes, but there's two things that could be going on here. First of all, it's the area of Prague. It's not Prague. And this could be a very to age-old Republican trick of semantics right where he wasn't in Prague. But he was in Prague minor, right? And he's like wasn't in Prague. Nope. Wasn't me prog ish. Yeah. You were prog as it and. And a lot of sense. Like, I went back to Phoenix for the holidays and my mom lives in moon valley, right? Which is in Phoenix. But somebody would be like to go to Phoenix. Nope. Because in my head. I'm like Zinnemann valley. Yeah. And that would make sense for Cohen to do that. I wasn't in Prague, you know, it's just right outside. And that's where the triangulation came from. And the other is that his phone was there without him or a phone registered in his name was there without him. Because as we know when Cohen's shit was raided his hotel has a home in his offices by the FBI this past April. I think can't remember it's been a long time. They confiscated sixteen burner phones. That's right. Which leads me to believe Coen doesn't understand how burner phones work like you're supposed to get rid of him after he hoards them. So he could have been responsible for the burner phones for the Trump team. And he put them in his name in other smart move. And maybe it was junior revoke that was over there or somebody else was sent to make these payments and had these burner phones with them, but the Russian intelligence, they call it sig int and Hume int which is signal. Engi- human intelligence says that eastern European intelligence agencies picked up an intercepted conversations between Russians rush into Russian that Cohen was in Prague. And that's what led them to investigate the cell, phone tower painting and all that other. According to these sources for full sources. Well, I those are all compelling theories like him being prog Jason him not being there being in charge of the burners. Any of them would make him were complicit. Yeah. But you can put beans on the fact, and I put beans on this. I guess this is conjecture conjecture, but you can put beans on it a phone registered to Michael Cohen was in Prague in the summer of sixteen twenty sixteen. Yeah. That's what it is bottom line. Well, how who what was surrounding it? How that happened? We'll find out. I don't know. Yeah. I think he was there. I saw an interesting theory on Twitter that was basically molar knows everything. But Cohen isn't they're not divulging anything explicitly. So they don't throw off the trail of any other investigations that are going on. Basically. I I liked that theory. But I also have an issue in if Muller had asked and not to say anything he wouldn't say, no, he would just say nothing. Okay. He wouldn't say he certainly wouldn't say I can't confirm or deny my visits or not visits because you're you went if you said, yeah. Yeah. I don't see Muller telling anyone to lie to the public. Right. I think the burner phone being in someone else's hands is most probable, that's what my beans there on. Yeah. And another weird theory. I heard too is that in like some sort of weird folding attempt where you put a message into a phone shut it down send it somewhere and have opened it up and read the message. So that it's not sent through, you know, Interweb radio waves house late travelling light travels on the speed of travels on a beam of light intrigued, nobody so, you know, it doesn't hit any internet towers, or whatever or, you know, internet IP addresses. Okay. So you can't follow it. But then that would mean that Coen forgot to put it in airplane mode. So that when the phone was opened and turned on at pinged his cell tower. Like, you you're supposed to if you do that you're supposed to put it in airplane mode. And it doesn't go being being I'm here. Right. Either way. He he messed up, but the Russians say and steel says that he was there. And so I kinda think he was there. Yeah..

That but had not been to vici- rod quite enjoyed our trip out there not too difficult to get to public transportation, some great views of the city and almost no tourists. Derek this to say about Prague Prague was probably my favorite of the places. We were I also think maybe that could be because I was there longer than the other cities we were at, but in general, I think because it was small and compact, you could see a lot more it just had a little bit more to it all in one area, and you could really get a lot bang for your buck. If you will one place in Prague, you think everybody should go to. I say the museum we all went to museum of communism. Yeah. They museum of communism. Definitely was something that I saw. And you think? Yeah. Maybe I'd go there, but I really appreciated the modern Ness of that. They did a really good job with the setup of the museum. And how it looked and the displays the videos and everything so that was quite surprised for me. I didn't get there this time. But from the pictures that I saw it's larger than the last time, I visited I note has moved. So I wish I had some that whole area. And I enjoyed the churches for me I had like a a religious epiphany in one of the churches in Prague site feel like I kind of left part of my heart. There are lady before the snow. So I definitely say go there something maybe everyone will have a religious epiphany. I don't know. Maybe it's just me. Me. That's where by the communism museum that whole area. It was really cool. I ended up seeing a little dual busking girl group there gonna call twenty minutes, and they were fantastic the day that I went I ended up buying a CD of theirs, and was overwhelmed a really great it had the markets right there. The tramlines came through secret hop wherever you wanted to go afterwards. That was just a really cool part of town that you wouldn't have thought because it wasn't the old town square in Dirk mentions the old town square, which is very beautiful in Prague, the old town square the Charles river bridge the castle, but if you wanna see those without hordes of tourists, you really need to get up early and do that. If you want to get pictures without crowds of tourists. We also did two things that we're going to reference later we did a food festival in Prague that was really just aimed at the locals way up on the hill above the castle. And then we. Also did a side trip to Putin. Hora Couteau horizon UNESCO world heritage site, which had a beautiful church which will talk about. And then also probably best known for the bone church. This is an awesome where there are the bones of tens of thousands of people their skulls in piles appear mids, but then they've also taken some of the bones in use them to make art Derek. And I had this conversation about could no Hora. And also the art of L funds. Muka who is an art nouveau artist. One thing that I was really happy about that. I didn't know that it was gonna work out was Luca. And the fact that prog now has the whole Slav epic on display. I don't know how long that's going to be on display. That's the tricky thing. Yeah. That's too bad. Because I drank the Luca Kool-Aid and with super in love with him beforehand. But like I was at the museum. I. Could've spent four hundred dollars in that place. But seeing that was really great. And I know beforehand, it was it's in Japan. It's in ver-. No, it's off here. It's gotta figure that out. I hope so in you were at the muka museum..

"Hello and welcome to the podcast i'm tracy view wilson and i'm holly fry today we have a podcast but i have started on and the stops maybe five times in the last five years but we're coming up on the four hundred anniversary so it kind of feels like i need to do it now or never you could do this in another hundred years yeah we would be so old we would be robot we would be able to really tell history from a alive perspective yeah so this is the much requested defenestration of prague and just to set a little expectation the the actual defenestrate ing does not take that much time pretty simple story defenestrate just means to throw out of a window and it's from the latin word finistere four window apart from sounding like it's the punch line to a joke about dialects there's been a surprising amount of throwing people out of windows and check history and almost all of it has been connected to religious wars so we're gonna talk through all that today her aa the first defenestration of prague took place almost one hundred years before the start of the protestant reformation but it stemmed from the same kinds of reforms and conflicts that were part of the reformation yon whose was a bohemian religious reformer who was born around thirteen seventy and his religious work overlapped the western schism which was a huge dispute within the roman catholic church here's how this dispute started bartolomeo pregnant oh was elected pope in thirteen seventy eight he became pope urban the sixth and he had been elected in part because for about seventy years all of the popes had been french and the papacy had been headquartered in avenue all romans started calling for a roman pope or at least an italian one they were tired of all these french popes and before his election pregnant had been serving as the archbishop of the italian city of bari so he's satisfied the romans demands for at least an italian pope but urban the sixth was hard to get along with he constantly but it heads with the cardinals who had become very powerful during all those decades of french popes so the cardinals elected one of their own as pope robert of geneva.

"Uh buffalo bills fans you know you wouldn't you say buffalo bills a posture fee fans is it is it something like attorneys general is it is that like related to that idea you're saying defenestration of prague instead of defenestration of prague of prague because i think is is correct there's no there on multiple brock's and how i do i write because it because let's extend that a posture fees so that it says thirty years is war thirty years yeah that's not a makes zero cents so i don't know it's it's it's may be something leftover from a time when they were recording this stuff it's maybe maybe after a after the gutenberg bible or maybe out of the invention of the printing press it was a fly landing on a page and somebody was like well i guess that's what is called lack i guess i just in that of the apostasy okay sorry there's a third but lesser defenestration yeah a third defendant and this is a big question about defenestration do you do you use that term out the window go to describe suicides uh self defense strikes selfdefence restrictions and i think generally you don't because of some and hilariously or bell maybe it's not all areas you wanna think like the blake be the prototypical suicide in a film is throw yourself out of wind and executive who's like yet this is it i lost at i lost retire lapsing thank god i gotta the 1929 defenestration but in fact it is like the least common way to kill yourself nobody actually does that say requires having a higher access to a skyscraper well access to a skyscraper which allows you to open the window they don't have any more nononsense because skyscrapers and i think uh like central cooling didn't come about at the exactly the same time but certainly much why the middle ages were the golden age of throwing people out windows you weren't in that you don't have those hotel windows where it's like this doesn't even open right so the third defenestration of prague.
