"Is burns night, a celebration of the life and works of the poet Robert Burns, but an event which has become much, much more than that for anybody interested in Scotland. Let's hear from Jenny gilruth MSP. She Scotland's minister for culture, Europe and international development, and she joins us from her constituency in fife. Good morning, Jenny. Morning, Emma. And may I wish you happy burns night? Is that the tradition? Thank you very much, yes. Happy birthday to you too. Tell us a little bit about how this is all come about. I mean, it is ostensibly a celebration of Robert Burns, but it is huge in Scotland. It says it is a celebration of Robert brown's life and the contribution he made to Scottish society, but his legacy lived on many years leaked and it said hugely important in Scotland, we celebrate burns night suffers up and down the country and this year is a little bit different and than usual years because a number of those sufferers will be virtual or there might be events that are being held online. But we know that the first ever brain software was held back in 1801 by his friends, have 5 years after his death. And we felt a bit more than 200 years later. And his legacy, which continues, of course, to that state. Just expenses a little bit about what the celebrations involve. So our traditional burn suffer, we would have the piping in of the guests. We would really need a really good paper for that. And the taste of the type in the guests and then we would have a chairman's welcome. We would then have the sales per grade, which I will recite which is something meat and can not eat and some would eat that one tip, but we meet and we can eat and let the lord be fine kids. We would then have a traditional burden software, the piping in of the haggis. So the presentation of the Hackett, the meal is very important. And then we would have the address to the haggis. And then we would raise a glass or two to the haggis itself. It's one of those rare occasions where I've actually been at a national event that's celebrated in families where you actually talk to your food. Yes, there is a tool to the haggis. Chieftain all the goodness. And at the time of the brain life type has been a fairly traditional quite a cheap meal, but it's no elevated of food status to brains legacy and his life and therefore it becomes a huge kind of focal point of a traditional brain sucker. Right, tell us a little bit more about the haggis. For those of us who don't know, it hasn't quite lively ingredients, doesn't it? Yeah, so a hack is essentially that she claiming she summit and it's a pudding that kind of traditional people which is open during the address to the haggis. And it's eaten with potatoes and with mashed turnips to the same Scotland or mashed together usually. So it's a very hearty meal of traditional Scottish meal, but it always traditionally associate referring to it in Scotland. It's usually the one time year you might eat haggis if you're not eating it at other times of the year. It is one of those things that it's slightly more polite not to actually ask what's in the haggis. I mean, if you are not Scottish and for those of you who, you know, when you have hosted non Scots at your table, how do you go about explaining this? Because it is such a specific series of events that need to take place in the evening, doesn't it? It's not something that you can just cobble together at the last minute. It's very, yeah, there is a certain learning order to I suppose. And it focuses around the but then it moves on to entertainment, which evening. And you can't jump ahead to certain things. They have to run in a certain order. You also have, for example, the emotional memory, which the keynote speaker delivers. And that's really about the life of Robert Burns and it would some of his politics his identity, his human condition, which, of course, filters through much of the poetry. And then the speaker would conclude with a toast to the immortal memory of Robert Burns. And then we would move on after that. This is such a big thing to give to the tools for the last day. So that's usually quite a funny part of the evening's celebrations. And it's usually delivered by our mom and it talks about phone's relationships with women, which was quite a colorful one, shall we say everyone had a number of different relationships and you write about them in his poetry. And then there is a chance an opportunity for the women to get a revenge and we have to require to laugh. And that's usually my favorite part of the night because it's usually quite funny. And then we sing old line plane at the end. So that's what kind of overall runs through, I suppose of what our traditional brain suffer might look like in terms of poetry and the lessons that he continues to teach us all today. Finally, you had your wings clipped last year because of COVID. You mentioned that there might still be a few virtual celebrations going on this year, but are there any better prospects of people being able to get together? Because, frankly, having been to a couple of burns nights myself, I don't think you could do it virtually. I think there are a number of challenges that's doing it virtually. So we had a number of good students virtually last year and we also partnered with an organization called famous only of 20 Friends event funded by Scottish government, which are being held across Scotland this year. But I think you're right to say that a traditional birthday software in person can't really be compared to how you would deliver that only. We've all had to deal with the impact of the pandemic over the course of the last two years. So and tomorrow actually the first minister will give an update to parliament on who we're going to Scotland with the next relaxation hopefully of the restrictions. And hopefully that might give people a bit of a culture hope for the next year. The last physical burning self-driving stock was in 2020. So we're looking forward to getting back to in person because you are right. It's a huge part of how we celebrate our in person experience of people coming together and celebrating the man's legacy. What are you doing tonight? Tonight, I will be having in the house with my partner. I am so will be celebrating it just the two of us tonight. Enjoy. Jenny gilruth on the line from fife in Scotland. Thank you so much for joining us on monocle 24. And that's all we have time for today's program many thanks to our producers page Reynolds and Charlie Phil McCourt are researchers Sophie monahan combes and lilian faucet and our studio manager Christie Evans after the headlines as more music on the way the briefings live at midday here in London, and the globalist is back at the same time tomorrow.

Collie arriving ranting raving rollicking young friend. Who for his friend and comrade had him and in his youth had listening to him. After some dog in highland song was made long past. Lord knows how long he was a wise and faithful. Kerr as ever leap to ditch or stone. Fence is honest. pleasant white streaked face. Got him friends in every place.

The Story of Auld Lang Syne
"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

"It is one of the biggest summer fairs in the country. Here in Washington, the nationals temporarily shutting down their summer camp after a delay in testing results to players testing positive over the weekend. Also in baseball news, the Brewers White Sox pirates, Diamondbacks and Cardinals also Porting covert 19 cases on their teams on the president taking aim and Bubba Wallace, the on ly black, full time driver on the NASCAR circuit. The story shaping Washington today, it's all ahead on C SPAN radio. We begin at the U. S. Supreme Court justices today, handing down a unanimous ruling that rejected two challenges to the constitutionality of the so called faithless electoral laws. The rulings come just under four months remaining before the 2020 election earlier today, we talked to Shinin post Supreme Court reporter Robert Burns about this decision and its potential impact later this year. Well, maybe what it tells the country is that there was no sort of clear political winner to this question. It didn't seem to favor either Republicans or Democrats how it turned out. Um, In fact, both Red and blue states had come together to ask the court to settle this issue before the election because they said that it would become political if somehow the presidential election hinged upon it. And Robert Burns, I'm mourning. If you could explain how in the decision today it includes a reference to the HBO sitcom Veep and the Broadway musical Hamilton. Yes. Well, Justin Justice Kagan like Tio, you know, try to make it interesting. She had to go back to the very beginning and how the framers of the Constitution set up. The electoral college. So there was a lot about the founding fathers in the in this and she also talked about how you know it used to be that Ah The electorate voted for president and the number two person was became vice president, rather than them running as a team. Round. She said that when political rival when that happened with political rivals, it would provide good fodder for another episode of Deep. So if hypothetically you have a faithless elector after the November election, what does that mean for the individual and for the states? Well, what it means is the states are now allowed states have always been allowed, or they have been allowed for, you know, half a century now to require that electors run on a pledge. That they would vote for the winner of the state's popular vote, But there was only 15 states have actual penalties for that. They either confined the person or replace the elector with someone who would fulfill that it does. This elector decided to do something different. So what this does is it gives a state A way to enforce that it doesn't mean that they have to. But if a state wants to make sure that it's electors are going to vote for the winner of the popular vote. It gives them more tools to make that happen. And of course, if this were a normal year, the justices would be on summer break, but Corona virus delaying the schedule. So still some big decisions looming. What are you looking for this week? Well, the biggest will be about President Trump's financial records. Ah congressional congressional committees and a New York prosecutor have asked the president's accounting firm. To turn over his financial records for their investigations. The president has thought that all the way now to the Supreme Court And so we will get a very important decision about executive privilege and about the role of prosecutors investigating the president when we get those decisions. And of course, we'll follow.

Fingering Fake Whiskies With Isotopes
"Kim to retention a few years ago that there were fraudulent skis on the market Gordon Cook of the Scottish universities. Environmental Research Center. Scorch whiskey is is Scotland's Scotland's product and. We felt that being up a really covered laboratory in Scotland. We should take a lead on this scotch. Whiskey is made from barley which absorbs carbon antioxidant from the air as it grows most of the carbon is carbon twelve but a small percentage is the radioactive isotope carbon fourteen. Which decays is it. A constant known rate and has therefore long been used to carbon date biological samples then in the nineteen fifties we had the star the atmosphere it weapons tests and these produce carbon fourteen by nine hundred sixty twice the national level and sixty. Three there was a test-ban treaty. So Oh sixty. Three was the maximum. And since then the level and the atmosphere has decreased as the radiocarbon goes into the biota a New Orleans so unusually high levels levels of carbon fourteen or associated with barley grown during the years when nuclear testing was widespread. There's obviously a lot of money in whiskey. And some classics get bought not as Imbibe Women's but is investments last October. A sixty year old nineteen ninety-six bottle was auctioned off for one point. Nine million dollars to make sure that the stuff inside bottles of Scotch whisky matches. What's on the labels cook. and his colleagues looked at levels of carbon fourteen in the drink. They calibrated levels levels of the radioactive carbon more than two hundred different single Malt Scotch. Whisky samples of ages researchers then compared those levels to eat whiskies claiming to have been bottled from eighteen. Forty seven to nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight we haven't found any whiskies purported to be from the nineteenth century the genuine because those allegedly nineteenth century bottles contained material clearly produced during the nuclear testing era the study he is in the Journal. Radiocarbon Cook Copes these verification techniques will help keep the whiskey business true to the words of Robert Burns. Here's a bottle. And and an honest

"Who had worked at the store for short time. Amanda Curtis flowers was arrested for the murders. Be unusual thing about this case is that the district. Attorney in the area. Doug Evans has now tried flowers for this these murders six times, which is practically unheard of all of the convictions. So far except for the most recent one have been overturned by lower court, the first trial in one thousand nine hundred seven another one in one thousand nine hundred nine two thousand four two thousand seven two thousand eight and again in two thousand ten what do you know about Curtis flowers? Well, as I say he worked there for a brief time he was fired either because he messed up he drop some merchandise and damaged at or because he didn't show up for work. Both of those things are true. There's been a wheel physical evidence against him. A gun was never found. You know, obviously DNA doesn't help anything because he worked at the store. And so that doesn't prove anything. There was a one particle of gun powder residue on his hand. He was convicted in part because of jailhouse snitch is folks who said that he confessed to them these murders. But in each of these three cases that people have recanted and said that wasn't true. They were just making up something that the prosecutor wanted to hear it is important understand that this case isn't before the court, but really the tactics by the prosecutor, correct? That's right. I mean, the there's been a there was a podcast called in the dark that race a lot of questions about flowers this conviction. However, it's not really flowers, that's sort of on trial at the supreme court. It's the prosecutor Doug Evans in two of the cases the there was a finding of prosecutorial misconduct in one of the trials. The Mississippi supreme court said that he had maneuvered to keep African Americans off the jury jury and in two of the cases the only two in which there was more than one African American on the jury those are the cases in which there was a hung jury and a mistrial. And so the court is going to be looking at whether Evans worked to keep African Americans off the jury, which is something that the supreme court has. A prosecutor can't do we should also point out that the suspect in this case Curtis flowers continues to maintain his innocence. Correct. That's correct and somewhat unusual in these death penalty cases at the supreme court. They don't often involves involves someone who says that he is completely innocent of the crime. Would you know about the district attorney Doug Evans, he is still on the job? Correct. He is he's been in office since nineteen ninety two he will be re-elected for another four year term soon because no one is running against him. He did not agree to an interview with me when I was doing the story from why? No, no, he has not really discussed any of this to any extent. He has said that he sure that Curtis flowers is guilty, and he has denied keeping. African Americans off the jury, but you know, there are some tough statistics against him that are out there. He used in. This most recent qua- trial in twenty ten five of his six strikes of jurors were against African Americans in one of the trials he struck every potential juror who was black. And so the question for the court is do you look just at this most recent trial and twenty ten and what went on in jury selection there or do you need to look at the entirety of this case? And what's happened in the cases before this one as well? And Robert burns, let's go through some of the numbers because there have been a total of seventy two jurors in six trials sixty one of those jurors white all voting to find flowers guilty and six of the eleven African American jurors finding the opposite. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, there's a real striking racial divide here on this case, I should point out that three of the four victims were fly to one was black flowers, of course, is black. And so, you know, this is a continuing problem in the judicial system, and to, you know, these racial divides in juries, and in the way that they sort of either trust or don't trust law enforcement. And so it's a, you know, it's a continuing problem that the court has faced the court as I said doesn't allow either prosecutors or the defense to strike jurors either because of their race or their gender. But you know, they can also offer a race neutral reason for kicking someone off which is what happens did in this case. The headline race and the death penalty.

I mean, I was drinking more like at night time after the boys went to bed and stuff like. And I was going to where I don't know. I wasn't waking up in gutters. Or nothing crazy like that. But I mean, I wasn't taking care of myself either. Don't get me wrong. But like. Yeah. Like, I said, I just didn't have the luxury of fucking laying in bed all day and just being. You know, all tore up about it for too long, because I, you know, Katie had quit her job to stay at home when Bishop was bored. And like it just you know, they were so that won't no. I mean, I had the leave and stuff, but. They just don't. Kids that aid babies? They don't give you what you're going through. Because they can't they don't you know, what I mean? It's not how it worked. And I still need your doctor change or need to be fed or whatever they don't have no concept of what's going on with you. So like, it just can't you can't matter.
