"Forward slash sport. On James, two are still in shock of Germany's defeat. What what went on? It was just a cataclysmic series of events and, Yeah, I mean, they look shocked. Shell shocks first time in 20 years. I've lost the World Cup qualifying game, James so Astonishing, absolutely astonishing. And you said, never changing of the guard. You know the manager's leaving after the euros in the summer, few players music get into that retirement age. Be difficult Couple years, I think for Germany ahead. Happening, James. Great. Thank you very much indeed. Let's head to the Gambian. Our Let's hear about the Gambia now, which is just voted to uphold the ban on skin bleaching, and that's after the government trying to get rid of legislation, which imposes hefty fines on people who use ourselves. Skin lightening products were ministers argued that their efforts should instead be directed towards educating people on the dangers of skimmed teaching. So they can make up their own minds. Well, according to the World Health Organization is estimated that 40% of women on the continent you skin bleaching products at some stage. Alan Procedure found out more about this practice from sinking material on academic from Rhodes University in South Africa who's taught a course on the subject. The profile of people who use King beaching products of very next. They are educated and uneducated, their men and women. They're young and older. They're people who are much married and people who are married. They're people who have great jobs and people who don't have great jobs. So it is something that is practice across classes across genders across education profiles. The thing that they have in common is that they usually are in societies. That believes that people with lighter skin tone are the more esteemed people in the society. That is the common denominator. But there is one particular group of people were more likely to publish their skin, young single women, and there's a reason for that lighter skin tone.

"Anyways she was mentioning that Andy Connie Barrett is Rhode Scholar, but it turns out she just went to Rhodes College, which is in Tennessee or something, and then someone called her out on that and apparently she said, Oh, my bad. Yeah. She had her like binder in front of her. She's like that was the information I was given, and then she tried to kind of look through it than the person said, no, she went to like Rhodes College, which is an American school. You know because the Rhodes scholarship is out of like Oxford, I believe for May became means. Yeah. You go travel to England and studied there right she said Oh is that what it is okay you know I. Appreciate. Even that much from this administration the ability to say Oh, okay. Yeah and not be like well, there you go. She's a scholar from Rhodes University that's what I would expect. So what I said was true wasn't it? Yeah. So this guy's name just happened to be roads, but I think they were still kind of grasping at straws to be like. Well, how do we build this guy up? So they introduced him as founder and president of oath keepers. Tell you about in just a little bit. Sounds like promise keeper sounds like it'll be boys talking about being godly men. Yes. Exactly. Yes. Women right by now watching porn someday we'll talk about promise keepers I went to at least one rally. Along as a kid yeah. Let's see his thesis on the political theory of James. Madison was I guess well regarded, he's a concealed carry firearms instructor. Hey when you play hide and go seek I was just thinking are You concealed carry I'm thinking when we go undercover? concealed. If you use a fake name, you're definitely concealed carry. Or Kerry something else he was part of Ron Paul's DC staff. Okay. Something about him being in jail in two thousand and four I don't know visited Yale and. The college that's the fault of my notes not he won the prize for best paper on the bill of rights and he is a volunteer firefighter in Montana it's like okay. Are. We patting the resume now and also wrote a book on applying the laws of war to American people. Okay. So the oath keepers are all about training veterans to take up arms and be kind of the citizen police force. Okay. Like militias and the whole. No thanks appeals seems to be you took an oath to the Constitution when you became a service member and so you need to keep that oath see of keepers and continued to serve as militia to maintain peace and order in the United States. There's no need just FYI I if you're out there veterans. Okay. Thank you for your service. Thank you on the militias don't. Okay I don't need to see you at my polling place with an AK, yeah take up a hobby. It's OK learn the Banjo. This guy had kind of a scraggly beard and he was wearing a black shirt with a black long-sleeved shirt over that A. You know like you have an undershirt. Got It got. It got a t shirt and then you have the overshirt. Okay and then he had a dark gray and black jacket on top of that and a black cowboy hat. Black on black radio like Johnny Cash Law Yeah. Yeah interesting look, but felt consistent but different. So US talking about just how the streets are run over. There's chaos and fires and what you're seeing on the streets right now is a Marxist insurrection and the beginnings of a hot civil war. That was the kind of his job. And he's talking. That's right. He's talking about all these ideological Marxists and they got jailed but the ones who didn't get jail they went into academia so that they could dominate that world and now they run it and their whole program is to brainwash young Americans and turn them against the country and label true patriots racist xenophobic charitable. Sure. Now, they're finally tipping their hand, the masks have come off as. which seems kind of backwards because they're usually was wearing masks but okay. So he agreed with me that education is the answer in the long run, but he specifically said homeschooling Oh. That's how we do it. We gotta get kids out of this public schooling system and make sure that they're learning our troops are way. Why would you make sure that kids get? That has been vetted by experts run through thousands or millions of people. To the Colonel Truth when you can instead have one person teach them you mean Marxist experts quote unquote now I'm trying to have somebody for that position because it is true like your teachers are people teachers are going to have perspectives. Of those perspectives are going to be out of alignment with your perspectives. Can Get. That's always the danger. Well, I remember people worrying about me going off to a secular college and I guess for good reason. Yeah and I think for a lot of people that's comeback even closer to the Chasse like well, we can't even let them go to public. Elementary School because they're going to get any doctrinal. Exposed to people who don't think the way we do, and then he was bragging about how they were in Louisville couple of weeks ago protecting businesses when there were demonstrations Allen, they also did it in Ferguson. So they sound like a real proud boys type group. But. With that veteran particular slant currency up he was pointing out there was a black lady who even hired us to protect her bakery. See this isn't a racist thing. I have to point out this one per exactly. That's why that's what I want example he said that he has these really proud of says, I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy. Okay well, cops can't respond instantly I had to be ready in the moment. So then you gave this, you pitch essentially and he asks who the audience is a veteran, and at least as far as I could see, I'm not sure how much of the audience this camera captured. Yeah. I wondered that too could always see a few rows and they felt pretty darn full people are sitting right next to each other. So I it extended back beyond that but there weren't that many people who raise their hands and said they were veterans. Maybe two or three I feel like I usually saw about fifty to sixty people in frame that sounds about right. Yeah. But yeah, who knows maybe there was six hundred behind them maybe I wouldn't bet on it. It was the same sort of thing that we hear from all of these presenters that everything that's happened. That's bad. was planned that way bad things only happen because it was intentional. So all of this current tumult is just to erode trust in the electoral system. That's a really interesting insight like that. It's this lack of awareness that some things are unintentional. Sorry I'm going out in the middle of what you're saying, but it reminds me of Dan Ariel his book, the honest truth about dishonesty. So he runs the lying lab at Yale, which is all about lying and he says in the book that when you're drunk your body, actually your brain basically turns off the mechanism that tells you. Things are unintentional. It's one of the later things our brains develop has young people. So like if you ask a two year old, here's a picture of a woman who drops. Her Candy, why did that happen? The two year old will say she wanted I. Don't know why she did the why did she do that? Yeah..

"We're going way back in time to the Permian, some two, hundred, ninety, nine to run two, hundred and thirty million years ago. This is long before flowering plants evolved. In fact, it wouldn't be another hundred million years or so before we saw any evidence of flowers in the fossil record and we're looking at a group of trees which would have been extremely important on the continent of Gondwana because remember during this time period, most of earth's landmasses were combined into a supercontinent status. We are, of course, talking about the gloss op Chris Flora these were extremely important trees that were once thought to be firms, but today are considered conifers. But as you're going to hear today, there's a ton of mystery surrounding the fossil remains of these plants and that's exactly what my guest is trying to clear up a little bit joining today is Wani. She's a paleobotanist working in South Africa and the whole goal of her work is to help resolve species delineation between gloss fossils, not an easy task by any means but. She was also revealing insights into Paleo Climate Paleo ecology and biogeography how species move around the planet why we see some species here and not others why we find fossils of certain species in some places and not others it's absolutely fascinating work and she's doing it with a lot of really cool modern techniques. I. Personally never knew how much mathematics went into resolving different fossils species but I don't want to steal here for thunder. This is an incredible conversation. Blew my mind as someone who really likes paleontology and botany is perfect combination just. Is Real just brain food. So let's just jump right into it without further ado. Here's my conversation with Apple Way I. Hope you enjoy. All right of way. Matsutani. Thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. How about we start off by telling everyone a little bit about who you are in what it is you do. My name is Khan Twenty and I am a button Est. so ancient plants from the Permian which is about. Two, hundred, nine, hundred, nine to two hundred. Million years. Ago. While and I am from South Africa and I grew up in a small village called you. Know you don't have. But a village Bill Fargo. Yeah Very nice. and. So where does your interest in plants come? Where you always interested in Paleo Botany or did you kind of find plants and then discover paleontology tangential to that? Still a happened was when I was young my grandfather kick. Me To blondes. So he is a software talk modernist and. Particular interest as medicinal plants. So when I was an Keast walk with me at. Me which constantly used. And it stemmed from them. But the thing is I know that there was such a field as a button. Because of the school that I went to and was there was no Korea guidance that much. So when I got to not I are frowned all weeds, wonderful horses that I could do everything and I took up Baccini in my honest and that was because of professor Walker, who was my wonderful soup I days and my masters and I did a project with him as a he her project on forest by diversity and. So I got hooked from Bay. So because in my application I actually said I wanted to do dramatics and to he called the. So actually a one of the top people that does is to maxine numerous deals like Oh. Okay, and then you often be ending and. Like come in my lab and those were the best Emma. I had so much fun. It was difficult by me. I had a friend because it was drained something that I loved but I was not focused to Kennedy on medicinal plants I was doing more of them ecological by geographical and to make a project. So it is really nice I enjoyed filled work. So I was hooked and the in after that for me to get to. Botany during the final year of my master's. I was actually what hearing as so high command mentor to. First. Year. And I had a supervisor so a line supervisor that I had. You about everything that I was talking about with my into using stuff and. I remember waiting outside his office. He's actually a professor at the Department of Geology at Rhodes University says waiting outside his office and there was his cabinet filled with fossils and I'm like Oh my word. Why Don't who and then I talked to him at and he said Oh I have rain. She's a watching this and she works at the Albany Museum I can get in touch with her so it all started day. So then I think and I volunteered department should take me to fill trips and this was actually stand for me not wanting to focus solely on my writing because one of the most pressing bagels. EMBIID comedy passion because I was actually supposed to do a PhD with my old supervisor, but I decided not very not to do it. Like a have no, no bad bladder anything we still work. Papers. I just felt like I needed a change and Spain's like floor yards doing this project but I mean I found Fussell's This is exactly what I wanted to do you know. been interested in plants for very long time I remember in Varsity I took archaeology as the NATO and one of the causes that he did was on diets and human evolution. Something like that. So it stemmed from day and. So. People Egged nut through the end Blah Blah Blah. So it was it was interesting during that time. Yeah. And they. and. Then I've got a I got a bursary from the tough excellence. Sciences and Post. They funded me throughout my PhD though that helped lots in terms of funding ands, Yep and research the as someone who recently ran out of funding definitely makes a big difference. Now that is. One of the most incredible trajectories I've ever heard because it is so rare to have those single moments that make you go. Oh my God this is my calling. This is what I need to be doing. And it is so cool that you've had a love for plants this whole time and actually did your masters on on Modern Day taxonomy and systematics and can't help feel that probably made this dive into Paleo Botany so much more interesting and so much more meaningful for you. Right Es differently because I mean when you think about plots and Fussell's yet a lot of people are not I wouldn't say not interested. I just say that people are not what the is a field like botany because all around you see about dinosaurs big t you know human evolution. You know and. Three gets the people go read but I mean who wants to those people because they have a actually worked hard to make people aware of the work that you're doing you know and it's exceptionals. So I mean now they need to learn about blunts and how magnificent it. Couldn't agree with you more and I think one of the first things that really attracted me to your research and your work on on science communication in general was this idea of saying like, okay we have these coal deposits in everyone likes to say like, Oh, you're burning old dinosaurs you're not. You're burning old plants. Yeah Yeah. I think I got introduced to dinosaurs because of my friends are also my supervisor I was never interested in them. Still I'm not interested in them, but I'm just fast eight. Reading. KNOWS GETTING A guy take bags. Just. Kidding. So Think. Is I think because of a paleontologist in general I look at everything..

"Answers for women joining me today on this Very timely episode is Dr Steven. Davidge and Steven is a current senior lecturer at Manchester University. In the United Kingdom he specializes in philosophy. He did his undergraduate degrees in South Africa where he added Bachelor and then he did a master's in the United States and a PhD in the UK all within the realm of philosophy before taking up his post at Manchester where he currently teaches. He taught at Rhodes University in South Africa and the University of Sheffield. So I wanted to have Stephen on the show because it came across this article a few weeks back called the attraction of apocalypse the philosophical roots of our of our fascination with catastrophe and this was a an article that Stephen had written About a month before and the article really dive into why we as human beings have this somewhat obsession attraction to apocalyptic thinking and narratives and who end and why catastrophe play such a big role in our life whether it's catastrophic thinking whether it's becoming the consuming type of news that many people do in our culture that are very catastrophic in nature and the way that they present situations and scenarios. They're very fear based and so steven. Sort OF LA's out. His philosophy is ideas around why we as human beings have Such attraction to these forms we talk about some of the current events and how it fits in with the philosophy of attraction to the lives and we talk about Just some of the some of the more interesting facets of Into the dark side of of human beings and the philosophy philosophy sort of points towards it and I think one of the most interesting things about this and one of the reasons why I wanted to have Stephen on.

Ian took a polaroid photograph of his body research by Rhodes university suggests that serial killers take trophies or souvenirs from their murders for several reasons. First it allows. To relive or fantasize about the crime during their cool down periods. Second the pieces or photos allow these killers to remain in control of those. They have dominated while away from them for Ian. These photographs were mementos to help him relive his crimes for Myra. They were tool she could use to keep Ian with her. And to remind him of what they were capable of together in the days and weeks after Keith went missing police searched for evidence that Keith's stepfather had done something to him even going so far as to rip up his garden and the floorboards in his house. Looking for Keith's body. It's common missing children's cases to look towards parents and stepparents as the most likely culprits as their around the children every day. Even though the police would interrogate Keith stepfather another three times over the next couple of years. They also expanded their investigation throughout Manchester policeman, literally went door to door to inter. View neighbors about their whereabouts. If someone was unavailable at the time, they would return later when they were home the house calls began to consume enormous amounts of the officers work hours and private time, but they had strong motivation to discover what had happened to Keith Bennett. Detectives with the Manchester police department had begun to suspect that John Kilbride and Keith Bennett's disappearances were linked, and that there might be a serial killer loose and Manchester. Even though crime rates at that time in Manchester were very high children almost never went missing to have two twelve year old boys. Disappear only six months apart. The detectives reason their cases must share a common link if the increased scrutiny bothered in and Myra they never seem to show it their lives in the months after Keith's murder were domestic and simple, Ian and Myra went to work, and they reconnected with friends after my res- twenty second birthday on July. Twenty third nineteen sixty four Myra and Ian spent more and more time with my resume. Her sister, Maureen and her new husband, David Smith, David had a lot of baggage. He was quasi infamous in Manchester for once stabbing a boy during a school fight and for once punching his school headmaster in the face Mirus. Parents had objected to Maureen and David's marriage from the beginning Myra, Ian on the other hand. Like, David immediately, and David admired, Ian, he and was ten years older, more worldly and seemed to have his life together. He had a stable job still working at the same chemical distribution office as Myra he did whatever he wanted and Myra was in emerald with him. No matter what Ian brought David under his wing much in the same way. He did with Myra. He gave David the same Nazi texts and marquee to Saad novels had given to Myra to read. He told David about his plans to rob a Bank almost as if he was testing David loyalty the way, he tested Myra. He also taught David how does shoot a gun Myra, Ian, Maureen and David would routinely picnic together in Saddleworth Moore's near and sometimes right on top of the places where Ian and Myra had buried their victims at some time in late nineteen sixty four Myers grandmother who Myra and David were still living with. Had to move to another government subsidized house in the nearby neighborhood of Hattersley Myra and Ian moved with her. And shortly after they were all settled in Ian told Myra it was time to kill again. No doubt emboldened by the fact that they had never even been suspected of their previous crimes in and Myra decided that they would do things differently..

"They don't realize perhaps what his history was, but he was. He was the prime minister of South Africa during its early colonial days. He had because of his position the had taken over personally taken over the most of the natural resources of South Africa, the diamond mines and gold and the silver all the recall. So the country Zimbabwe Rhodesia? Yes. Was the breadbasket of Africa, more food. They fed everybody until they lost to Mugabe and the Africans. Exactly. So relatives is a major historical figure, and he was one of the wealthiest men in the world people say, okay, so what? But what they don't know is that wouldn't roge- died. He left this fantastic fortune. And to the formation of the secret society that he'd been dreaming about and created. And we know about that because the one of the members of this secret society which William stead and William stead was the administrator of c. so roads wills, and he wrote a book called the last will and testament of CJ roads. So we know all about those. Well, almost all about those wills because the administrator of the estate, William stead wrote about it. And in fact, he was a part of the secret society. So we know these things seasonal roads wrote these things are president William J Jefferson or whatever his name Clinton and the Rhodes scholarship. And you know, I, I'm always in South Africa Rhodes university, which is in grams town and all this. So how does how does that affect the Federal Reserve Bank? I mean, how did this all come together? Well, I, I need to tie Clinton perhaps to this, you mentioned Clinton. And then I think it's significant thing that when Bill Clinton was a received a nomination for president at the Democratic Party convention, he gave honorable mention to professor Quigley, and he said that he owed much of his political thinking and his enlightenment to Quigley and after Clinton was already president in a few public speeches, he did the same thing. So he mentioned Quigley purposely and publicly and to most people thought, well, listen, that nice here is President Clinton, acknowledging this nice kindly old professor as being an influence, a positive influence on his career, but those who understood who Quigley was and what he wrote about it was a whole different message. The few who understood said a ha, I get it. Bill Clinton is telling us that he is a protege of professor Quigley and that since Clinton was a Rhodes scholar. Ship, they got the connection that he was recruited into this secret society through the Rhode scholarship. So Clinton was saying indirectly to those who knew he was saying, I know about this conspiracy and I am now in its service. History, then that was things like the glass steagle act was repealed in nineteen ninety nine, which turned basic and the whole banking system into a great casino. And so all the actions of Clinton are best explained from my point of view, at least by understand the creature from jackal island, it's how the ultra rich have taken over the world via thing called the Federal Reserve Bank, which bails out. As you said in creature from Jack lalane, the name of the game is bailout. So when the whole thing crash, they didn't call it bailout. This time they call it quantitative easing, is that fairly close. Connected? Yes. In order to bail out these banks and and their corporate institutions that are, you know, the source of their great monetary power in order to bail them out, you've got to have money to give them. So in order to give them the money, you've got to have the legislation that authorizes you to do that. So you go to congress. Congress dutifully says, yeah, I'm much do you want and they'll authorize any amount that you say and then give the Federal Reserve the authority to do what it was designed to do, which is to create this money out of nothing. Cells, and then they give it to their buddies that was Paulson who was from Goldman Sachs, and he was head of the treasury, which authorized guys like Burnett key to print quantitative easing. Yes. And actually, you know, the fed now has ways of doing that anyway, but it's it's better they think of just having it done legitimately out in the open through congress. Congress says, yes, no matter what because they go in and they tell congress, look, if you don't give us this power by noon, why the whole banking systems are gonna come on, would there'd be panicked, people will be shooting each other in the streets..
