Germanys digital identity landscape with Verimis Roland Adrian
"Hi roland oscar. Nice looking with you on and really happy to hear what is going on in germany in terms of identity in or ever seen related to that and happy to know more about very me very baheren hearing berry meal ready for the last year. San diego need to hear more details. What are the are building offering today so. Please tell us your journey how. You became the managing director very me. Yeah thanks you can. The many thanks for the invitation. Let's here and talk to you a little bit about the markets in germany. So yeah what was my journey becoming managing director of very me. Actually my journey professional. Johnny started twenty five years ago. When i started my career in consulting. Then some stations cashed out which is a department store group. And then i founded multi-platinum loyalty scheme together with start at telecom and from there. I moved to payback. Which actually is janis leading multi partner loyalty scheme. They are quite some markets worldwide than india mexico italy. Us and from all the travel. I got introduced to lose tons of course and became the ceo of lufthansa mice and more during that time. Actually i realized that the future is more. And more about seamless customer experience. Because if you look at lofton's in many cases the real loyalty benefits that you can get there. They actually translate into a real seamless customer. Experience that you get you look at all the tracks for security and immigration priority boarding presort seating in the plane actually the customers tend to reward benefits in their experience much more then any loyalty currency and so at the moment where then lufthansa invested into very me idea for me. It was very clear that this would be an exciting next step for me personally. So i decided to switch over to meet to be the ceo of me and push forward at digital identity to provide seamless customer experience for the users and i can induce that lufthansa is one of the funders organization behind very me. But let's more place for the ones who are not familiar with very still bear me does. In fact lufthansa there's actually one of the investors and we have altogether thirty very large companies in germany that invested into the very idea and a lot smaller companies are really known brand. Names such as liens deutsche. Bahn dot eubanks lufthansa dodger taylor com dime la some song fox button so all very large companies that invested into very me to establish of wallet of digital identities so that was the driving force and i think when we will talk about the market later on we will see that it was a very good moment to invest into such platform because the market urgently requires the platform and there's pretty much empty space currently in germany. And what we provide as bury me as this one click digital experience for very fight identification was in a pop. Misuse cases and at the core of it on is an identity platform. Of course that matches all the regulatory requirements for our anti money laundering or either substantial. And this comes along with the solution for strong customer syndication because the critical part of such a platform is not the identification of customer itself. Actually the critical part is the reuse. And that means the access to the digital identity

Welcome this is not nice w fit on the way to be lovely. Some of your listeners have no idea what wait so i guess on my show a long time ago in roland in is now but he he's an englishman to and he's also also from from yorkshire and we both work at human hacking conference together last year and they the the person who runs that conferences owns the conference was so an analyst accents that we could play. He wanted us to do ten minutes on stage. Just talking lancashire and yorkshire and that's what we did. Is this english. it's been a lot easier recently. I think when when when. I'd say i'm from i was born in yorkshire to say what does the accident. Now i can say. Game of thrones.

The the real deep motivations of why people make decisions why people collaborate together which obviously you spend a lot of time working on and i learned about behavioral economics. Through rory seventy didn't amazing tedtalk called confessions of an odd man and that really sent me down this rabbit hole of what is the role of psychology and how we come together as people and driving forces behind it.

Just go to weld without wind dot com and click on the membership top. So let's get my guest today into being a lady who's pretty well known here in south africa. Her name is maryanne sheera now. Maryanne is a woman before had time. She wrote a book called the natural way more than twenty years ago. An only now is the way of life. She advocates going mainstream on apart from being an author. Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across. Imagine yourself in the garden of eden and you craving something sweet. What would you eat. And there was a stately silence and this woman blonde voluptuous woman sitting in the front rows in this deep voice. Adam evan rumor osc that christian. I'm thinking this woman. It was really funny at the time. But it's just interesting because i've often christian in los angeles of austin in the republic of hot bay of austin zimbabwe of austin the uk. Austin all over the
‘People Are Going To Die That Don’t Need To Die’: Available ICU Capacity Drops To 1.7% In Southern California Region, Los Angeles
"The arrival of the Corona virus vaccine, Governor Gavin Newsom warned yesterday that the state is quote not at the finish line. California faces a worsening shortage of ICU beds with less than 6% capacity remaining statewide. Here to tell us more about how hospitals are coping with the virus surge, particularly in hard hit. Southern California is only Times reporter Ron Lin, who has also been reporting about concerns about the widespread flouting of lockdown rules in some parts of the state, which Health officials say is impeding the battle against the virus. Roland, thanks so much for joining us. First thing quite a beer. So tell us about the situation in Los Angeles County first, which now has like fewer than 100 beds available in a county with 10 million people. Yeah, it's pretty crazy. Across Southern California. We have less than 2% of ICU bed capacity and in L, a county like you said, we have fewer than 100 beds. ICU beds available Azad money There were only 95 available and the concern is that we're already seeing situations in which ambulances are waiting up to six hours to offload patients at the emergency room situations in which people have to Because it's so back loaded that people that patients are asked if they can if they can to get up and get walk into the emergency room and wait in the lobby because there's no beds in the emergency room s O. This is you know, getting to a point where it's you know, it's pretty zah crisis. It's not an overwhelming, though, like what we saw in New York City and in northern Italy. The concern is that you know, we're getting close to their, um You know, some California as a region it actually has, you know, double the number of cases per 100,000 people down the Bay area, so it's in a much more critical stage of the pandemic than in the Bay Area.
"roland" Discussed on The Smoking Tire
"A potentially very bad time. Yeah that i think. We are from the problem with autonomy autonomous cars. There's more to it than just like autopilot on a plane or a boat like cars need to communicate each other. Humans like passively communicate with each other from car to car like all the time like a glance like a little body. Language like non verbal communication driver to driver across dot like until you have cars that can straight up communicate with all the other cars. You're going to have such a messy gray area of these computer quote driven vehicles trying to have a communication with a human and it's like they can't interpret what that human wants and the human can't interpret what the other car is doing because with the cars doing completely unrelated to what the person in the driver's seat is doing and so it's such a messy gray area. The next fifty years and the problem with autonomy autonomous vehicles is. We've somehow decided as a society that is the future. We've determined that it doesn't have to be as people are lazy. That's the product. I don't want to drive to work. Admit that yeah. They'd rather wrap it in this blanket of it's safer but the problem kind it's bullshit it's actually bullshit. I can meet the not.

Yeah yeah welcome to the fucking future any great. You know what. I mean like now we have to get from now till then. We have to invest so much every day. And they do it because they assume that it is inevitable that that's where we have to go. But it's fucking based in horseshoe. We don't have to do that. We could make people better drivers and like instead of what that would be series autonomy. I'm driving or the cars driving right. We could have parallel autonomy where you're driving all the time but the car is totally on crash. How about we let the computer do that. Vigilant radar thing. That computers are good at and we do the thing we're good at like wouldn't that make sense but now people fucking lazy. Let's kind of where they're at right now. Little bit and my wife's car right.

Yeah that sounds like everybody Ben says any advice for heating up my front tire on the track faster. I'm not running slicks. And i've drop the bike twice on track because of cold front tires. I would say the best option that you can do is probably get. Some tire warmers blankets satire blankets are. They they they make a huge difference. I mean you can also just not go quite as fast on the first two laps. I usually do that these days. I've crashed every road. racer here. they say they haven't crash tires. they're lying. I have splash rock on old tires. A couple times. I learned hard lessons. Yeah it hurts. I mean to get in your tires. Heartbreaking heartbreaking will do it hard acceleration. Make sure the things stood up straight. Yeah i think. I think most people do those swerve back and forth thing to try and heat their tires up when actually doing heartbreaking does more in a car not just because of the friction of the of the rubber. But then you've got a hot brake disc inside that we'll that radiates heat for the next thirty seconds or whatever that actually helps to heats up the actual wheel itself bikes open. Air rotors. maybe not so much hurt. Couldn't hurt right. yeah Red mopeds says speaking from experience bikes will gap anything on the road and for far less money for Because of this why don't you take advantage of this and get a higher busa or ninja h two. Is this a suggestion for me. I should do that. I guess you need faster vehicles. I'm not. I think i've been pretty clear about the fact that i'm terrified about going fast on motorcycles. I'm fine going slow on motorcycles and terrified. I'm a bitch i liked the busa because it's just like i think it's a good looking bike the you know but you'll be very very scary and it was such a huge deal when it came out right. Yeah i remember my first ride on a high busa. And i was just like that changed. The game was on them. Yeah well they okay. So they built a high busa and that was like an incredible bike and then they built like the z x ten right and it was like the ten even eclipse high abuse at the time and it was just like the expertise on and yeah they hit where the where all companies like kind of like.

'The Writing On The Wall' Finds Poetry Behind Bars, Projects It Onto Buildings
"The wall takes the words of incarcerated people beyond prison and jail walls. The project began small but gained new visibility through projections of the writer's words on the sides of buildings in the U. S and Mexico. John Kayla's reports that it is a collaboration between a conceptual artist, a college professor and those whose words they want to share. Devon Simmons served 15 years in New York prisons lens hanging off the tree limbs. Skeletons of these two range in strange fruits with strong braided brownstone. Intrigued by envy, he reads from a poem by Carl Burn hard that is part of the writing on the Wall Project. Simmons graduated from the prison to college Pipeline program, which included a seminar with artist Hank Willis Thomas, one of the co founders of the writing on the Wall. Speaking via Skype, Thomas says working with his incarcerated students sparked the idea of sharing their creative output with those on the outside is a eureka moment. Look at all the wisdom look at all the heart that is imprisoned in our society. There was a huge hypocrisy or irony that I thought we could and should be focusing on There was so much poetry and there just so much beauty drawings, thoughts so much reflection of humanity. That's Bozz Dries ing, the other co founder of the writing on the wall. She also founded the Incarceration Nations Network, a coalition of prison reformers, and she teaches English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Technically, I was teaching English classes. But really, I was teaching criminal justice through the lens of humanities. And that to me is what the writing on the wall is. The idea for the project came winds rising. There show Thomas some of the writing she's been given by incarcerated people. Two enlisted architects to design mobile installation move that resembled a prison cell with the words of the incarcerated on the walls, floor and ceiling. The idea was to take the booth two cities around the U. S and Canada. But after it's New York debut, the tour was cancelled by the pandemic in prison by covert Bye, Mr Roland Davis. We were taken over by a virus, more cities in any terrorist attack. As the days and weeks turn into months, Americans locked themselves into their homes and fear of what was to come. We? We had to lock inside our cages because it was the safest place for us to be. With the tour cancelled. The organizer's got the idea of projecting those words on public buildings, often ones that are part of the criminal justice system. They enlisted a company called Chemistry Creative to come up with a projection system. The last installation was at Brooklyn Public Library Standing outside chemistry. Creative producer Sidney McDonald describes the first projection. Nobody was out on the streets. There was still very strict fans on everything being closed, and nobody actually really sawed in really life besides the people who were there, but the projections on but since then the writing on the wall has been Seen in Detroit, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Washington, DC Columbus, Ohio, in Mexico City again or just Hank Willis Thomas. There is nothing that Eisen artists or anyone could really do or say that was more extraordinary. Them things that these artists were doing as you say. I talk about those artists, and some of them had not thought about themselves artists, but it was clear that they were. One of those artists is divine Simmons, who is now working as a paid curator and tour guide for the project. If you take the time to actually read some of the material is in the installation. You recognize that people

The greatness of Rafael Nadal
"We talk about tennis. She was about this final and put it on pitting off having to actually summer. The achievement of rough on the dull winning thirteen, French Open, and winning this French. Open in particular and doing it in the way that he did because. It. So astonishing I'm struggling to process. Frankly, yes. Apologies in advance for hyperbole and use of superlatives, but if you can't use them now when rough on the is now hundred and two girls and has won his thirteenth title when when can use MS utter the extraordinary? What is the chief today, and of course, this is an achievement that is actually fifteen sixteen years in the making it is it is unbelievable. Walk Needle is able to do both in tennis number one, but also just at this tournament, one of his best ever career performances David today. I would say so this was Up there with what he did to federal in two, thousand eight when federal and a handful of games arguably even better I think because federal struggled that day I think the conditions were less suited to today on paper at least I would have thought compared to a high bouncing day in June, and of course, he's you know he's twelve years older I mean, let's not forget. He's thirty four that's that shouldn't be. Put. To one side because you know he's got a lot of miles in those legs lot of kilometers and it's it's just mind boggling that he can physically do it for star I think it bore a lot of similarities to what Jackovitch did to him in the Australian Open file of twenty months ago, which was Jock itch referenced in Oh Sorry Nadal referenced in his post match comments it had that same feel inasmuch as when we were discussing this yesterday and we were building up to it all week long the one eventuality are could not see is one of these destroying the other one that's just could not see I mean, which is again just another example of how good predictions I am. But it was. A performance that I wasn't expecting of that level and that that feels unfetter I found the down after what he's done over the last twelve years but. He lifted himself to a level. We certainly haven't seen at this tournament. And it was this fortnight anyway it wasn't. It wasn't just. Fortunate needlework open happen to be having Berlin day today is it wasn't just what one of these things the way the cookie crumbles he change things in his approach today he was an I believe the stats ended up bearing this out in terms of name body was quitting. On your coverage David about the net clearance on his kind being significantly. Lower today than in previous matches indicating how much more aggressive he was being on that I mean I think on both wings in particular on that on that can side he was. Firmly the aggressor out there in an joke which was on the back foot right from the word go and. He looked. Bewildered by the level throughout, imagine, imagine playing really good tennis and being the world number one. And having lost six love. I just can't I can't imagine how awful that feels. You know I texted you guys. At the end of that first set and I said. Other than serving a bit better. I. Don't know what he can do. I don't think it's a question of just raise the level a bit and that'll be okay. What can he possibly do? Yeah and he's been in his press conference Djokovic and use the word surprised by Nidal's level. I don't think he sold this coming from the doll based on what we've seen from the doll these two weeks. Yes. Nidal's been great. He's the final without dropping a set, but it's clearly not been absolutely top top level in the dull and I'm not sure your conviction was expecting the performance that we saw from the Dell today he was caught off Guard surprise bewildered and that that. is so much credit. As you said to walk in the door was doing he was the aggressor. He was taking every opportunity to hit his forehand down the line and standing up on the baseline and kind of taking the drop shot away from Jackovitch. I'm sure we'll talk more about that but just little subtle changes in his game that he made the just made this huge overall difference and with the intent that he paid with it was it was overwhelming for Novak Djokovic Channon. was kind of reminded of a little quote I read from turning adult recently who often the Schwartzman team match said a lot of people compare team to my nephew. But I, don't think that's a fair comparison. This was in Spanish. This was in the Spanish newspaper El Pice and he was saying that team is a great player, but he doesn't have the options in his game that Nadal has and. The different ways to be able to beat you I. Think this goes back to what we were talking about on a podcast recently when David you said the fact that these players are always adding things today game, the dull Djokovic and Federer, and the Dallas got so many different ways he can beat you. He can change what he does and he did that today and I think it surprised Yovich and It shouldn't be surprising to me, but at the end to us, but it kind of was surprising to see the dull change tactically against your that that rivalry has been so familiar in my head of what that looks like in terms of the patterns of the rallies and this one was different out there nobles the those tactical awareness today was was as good as anything I've ever seen from him. I think

He had issues in Haiti for political reasons things like that. His grandfather's problems started during the brutal dictatorship of President Francois Duvalier who's usually known as Papa doc hopper allowed no political dissent while he ruled the mortality rate of political prisoners reportedly was the worst in the world he and his son known as baby talk ruled over Haiti from the late. Nineteen fifties till the made one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s for the first time in nearly thirty years of Duvalier, dictatorships Haitians are talking openly about overthrowing their leader ruling doesn't know exactly what went wrong.

So in December of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, little seven year old role in boarded a plane in shorts and a tee shirt and flew to John F. Kennedy airport in New York City.

From the moment he arrived in the US. Roland was a legal permanent resident and his life became very American very quickly after a couple of years living in Brooklyn, his parents moved him and his siblings to the New Jersey suburbs Roland finished high school and got a job at a chemical plant became the manager there everybody loved me because I was the youngest guy a job.

Enjoying myself and it was on one of these trips that Roland got pulled over for speeding. This traffic stop and the events that followed would lead role in story to collide a few years. Later with another man's a teenager whose unusual journey through the United States immigration system has derailed tens of thousands of people's lives.

"Cohen rates have spiked in the Czech, republic? There's lockdown the promoter of the financing apparently pulled out suddenly there's no progress. and. So right now, there's one event on the W. T. Calendar. A number of sort of smaller events are tour level that are probably going to have very good field. I think there's a mix of frustration among the players that You know you're your, it is the first week of October and I can't imagine that I'm not GonNa play again until twenty, twenty one there's also some relief that this has been a strange year. It's no fun to take the corded a mask. It's no fun to be an hotel bubble and not be allowed to. Go out to dinner with with colleagues. But it looks as though for all intents, the WTO is pretty much done for the year The ben got some good news today when the Paris Indoor event held at Bir see on the other side of town from From Roland Garros announced that the Paris Indoor is going to happen there will be a thousand fans permitted and that's it but still it's better than nothing and there are a number of men's events left on the counter. I don't know how indoor tennis goes in Western Europe given that the bars or closing and countries reporting second waves but it does look like they're going to be a lot more opportunities for the men as of now the men's final event in London at the Oh. Two is still is still on the calendar. So there's there's a lot of uncertainty and I think that A lot of this is subject to change. We just saw that the Auckland event canceled not a huge surprise in New Zealand. Give it. New. Zealand's. Cove Protocol but already they're calling off events and twenty, twenty one I think most players minds are pretty much on getting Austrailia, which looks like it's going to have to happen in December. Quarantining in Australia and then playing a full swing. Down under and it does seem like after the French Open for the women especially, this year's pretty much.

"I think this was the best day at the French Open so far and the one where I thought about the witness the least. There was a good combination of really excellent matches and drama, and also an an unfortunate story of a big story line which was Serena Williams withdrawing from the tournament which happened moments after the sonic boom. Eerie how how close those two massive events were to each other and it was very hectic hectic time I. Think Actually Serena Williams's withdrawal was announced while we didn't know what the sonic boom walls. So it was it it was very unsettling period of the day that was probably the weirdest period of the day. But after that I would say it was a it was a fairly normal and eventful an interesting day of Grand Slam tennis. Rumors started to circulate pretty pretty much as soon as play had started about Serena Williams Joel and I'm sure would have been. One of these things have been more people and journalists. Onsite M Maybe proper word would have got out early than than it did was the. Circulating and actually pretty soon after that Serena Williams came to press. And told everybody Yep I am I. Am we from the much due to the Achilles injury that she hits kind of played down after her after I much against Christiaan It was obviously the injury she sustained in the US Open semifinal against Victoria as rancor, and again after that defeat, in New York, she had really played it down and said that wasn't why wasn't why I lost today,

Now Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron previously had refused to release grand jury transcripts. But now last night he announced that he would have to comply with the judge's ruling ordering a recording of the grand jury presentation that would be added to the courts case file. They do have to release recordings, transcripts, and reports of the Grand Jerry relating to the case, and that has to be released to the public. Here's what he has to say. So the of the investigation was a reflection of how important was that we got this right we didn't WanNa rush and we did not these are prosecutors and investigators who don't care about political distinctions don't care about influence in any particular regard with care about is the truth and we presented that to the grandeur. Well, we shall see now with everything about to be released and these statements came. you know there's a juror that is saying that they did not get all the information so that Jerry is a very brave person. The grand jury is asking for the transcripts to be released because they saying that Daniel Cameron lied to them for political gain and withheld material information from them so they would not indict. got a conscience. They basically saying you know they're not gonNA take the fall for Dan, you cameras mistake by not presenting all evidence and good on those jurors good on those jurors for void and immediate past few months because they clearly weren't swayed by the Court of public opinion.

Using Existing Edge Hardware for New AI Capabilities - with Roeland Nusselder
"So Roland. Glad to have you on the program. I. Know we're going to be talking about a at the edge. I. Think in order to have that conversation based on where your firm is focused we should talk about micro controllers and a tiny am l. This is for for you folks really really big opportunity for ai at the edge he maybe not up what we're talking about today. Yes sure thing very me of course. So tiny mel is machine learning or a I own really cheap low power hardware and then usual micro controllers. Some Mike controllers are very cheap low-power chips and they're literally everywhere are hundreds of billions of my controllers in a roads sets also why they can be cheap. But it's very challenging to deploy machine earning or to run machine learning or microcontrollers and its resulting but maybe it's good if I did a bit of a wide so important to run machine learning microcontrollers. So one way to do this, I mean if he thought, you could think that you can just sense the data back to the cloud depressing Darren very heavy and. Expensive jeep use bid. This is often not a very good idea. First of all, they're bench with limitations. So if you have a camera that's connected to Wifi network and they sent up the whole camera to the clouds, if you have multiple gummer's connected through same wife network that just doesn't work your your wife is down immediately than there are things like latency take. Time to send it to the cloud to person Darah Senate back there reliability issues, diner radiant, and it's done. You still want to make sure that your product works their privacy issues. You don't want to send feed data or audio data through the clouds and dinners energy consumption. That's actually a big issue because sending data to the cloud or even if use WIFI consumes a lot of energy and that's not good. especially not if you have a battery powered device Saddam L. Solstice by running machinery and work by running two workloads on the device itself the very cheap low power chip. But. The thing is it's very difficult to run machine learning on a chip and that's what our companies folks them. Got It. When you say chip in this case, you're you're talking about microcontrollers. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. Got It. Got Maybe. So you've walked through a couple of instances an. Familiar. With you know the edge as as sort of an idea and the intersection of of Iot nfl you focus on this space pretty ardently though maybe we can talk about some of the cases where hyping data to the cloud makes sense and some of the cases where a dozen year security he brought up bandwidth. There's a lot of these practical concerns. Can we tie this to you know potential business cases Hey dan here's an example where it completely makes sense we we gotta send this stuff up it might be at the edge, but we got to send it to the club and here's an example where we really should not be doing that Do you have any? We can talk about The main thing here is that you want to have devised a battery powered. That's an important issue because makes much cheaper much easier to install vices. So for example, if you have a small camera in a grocery shop to detect if a shelf is empty or not. You want to make the device battery-powered at getter with smoke, and you can do that if the machine learning workloads is running on a mic controller and it just sense a small signal to the cloud if the shelves empty or if the if the shelf is enough to empty and you always want to tasks on the edge, if that's bull doing reason, why would not want to do it on the edge is if you need so if the Model is so complex that requires a lot of energy to run and requires very expensive. Large ships skull jeep use said, that's why you want to do hoax over example for very complex and opie models of complex NLP tusks you you might want to do it in cloud, but if it is Bulbul, if you game run it locally, you generally want to do that because of bent with. Issues, because of latency issues, because of reliability issues because of privacy issues. So a good example of adults that you want to run locally is, for example, an H. system where on a heating air conditioning system where you have a small camera which idex if there are human in room, and then if there is a human into room, the heating air conditioning system automatically turn on or turn off. You don't want to send it whole feed your feet to the cloud it. It's not great for your free event with of your Wifi network. Another great example where we ecstasy for between is in retail. So you're starting to see devices that are battery powered that have a small camera and that have a small microcontroller controller, and it runs in a little deep learning model to detect if the shelves empty or not car, and if the shelf has empty than the signal to store manager that someone needs to fill up the shelf again. Yeah. Yup or for example, as small camera detects how many people are waiting in acute and at the stores manage store managers do more effectively locate their their stuff thus like debt or you can do gay seduction off shopper and detect. What kind of products show purser January interested in said at the shop nick and do better product placements those kind of thoughts. been if you're running ds on larger chips that are more energy consuming, you have to connect them today Tristan Nets, somehow that makes it much more expensive to install much more painful store owner.

"The rail. Suddenly a new voice emerged from Roland one that was loud and rich and deep. It said Satan. Satan am Saint Michael and I command you Satan to leave the body in the name of Domino's immediately now now now. Rolling body fell back against the mattress twisting wildly for several minutes. Then he stopped. In his own voice he said. He's gone. Bowden and the other priests could feel it in the room could feel the release of evil it truly was gone. For a few weeks, Bother Bowden and rowlands family were cautiously optimistic when it was clear, the exorcism had taken for good. They allowed themselves to relax rolling in his parents returned home to Maryland. Bowden stayed true to his word and kept the details of the exorcism secret. He sent Father Bishops, daily log to the local archdiocese to be kept on file in case anyone else needed instruction in the future. But the Lutheran Minister who I saw Roland Miles Scholtz didn't have as much discretion in August of nineteen, forty nine. He gave a lecture on the subject. He was apparently really interested in parapsychology and felt it was important to share what he'd seen. This lecture was written up by a few local papers and it was this brief were counting that author William Peter. Blatty us to inspire his novel the. Exorcist. In. The wake of all the publicity, the Catholic Church ordered an official inquiry into rolling does exorcism was he actually possessed? According to the official inquiry. No. They felt all of the details of rolling story could be explained by a quote psychosomatic disorder and some Caen action that we do not understand, but which is not necessarily preternatural end quote. But. All that really means is we don't know what happened, but we're pretty sure wasn't a demon. In his book on Roland possessed Thomas Questioned the report if it wasn't possession been, what could explain it. There were three dozen witnesses to rowlands torment both in Maryland and Saint Louis Doctors Priests Neighbors Teachers at school people who had no reason to lie about what they saw clearly, they saw something happening to him. Now, some psychologists think that possession is a crisis of the mind not of faith. It's about inner demons and in many cases, people who feel like they've been possessed a history of childhood sexual abuse in the beginning rollins mom thought that aunt Helen was responsible for everything happening to her son and remember role was really affected by her death. It's been posed before that. Maybe there was some kind of like sexual abuse element to their relationship. And it's possible. I mean during some of the exorcist sessions rolling made obscene sexual comments and mind masturbation. But if this was a manifestation of trauma, why was it cured by the exorcism for weeks Roland underwent these sessions and they were agony. An extra schism isn't comparable to talk therapy. If anything you would think it would make his trauma worse. Other possible diagnoses include religious OCD to read syndrome and childhood schizophrenia but in all three of those. The symptoms are chronic. They wouldn't suddenly appear and then just disappear the way that Rowland's troubles did and there are still some things that don't fit into any diagnosis at all how did rolling suddenly develop perfect pitch but only while in that trance state what caused those red welts on his body marks appeared out of nowhere in front of multiple witnesses. How do we explain so many objects moving at will the Caen action that the report refers to? There's no clear answer obviously. But one thing to consider is this the Bible warns against communicating with spirits in two different chapters. It goes so far as to say that anyone who's been in contact with spirits should be stoned to death. So that implies there's a long history of bad stuff happening when you try and talk to dead people. When rolling used the OUIJA board? Maybe he did reach some kind of spirit. It just wasn't aunt. Helen and maybe it wasn't a literal demon from Hell. It was just some kind of malevolent force that we can't understand another priest Father Herbert Thurston told Thomas Allen that he thought this was a more accurate interpretation. He said quote it is possible that there may be natural forces involved which are so far as little known to us as the latent forces of electricity were known to the Greeks. It is possibly the complication of these two elements which forms the heart of the mystery end quote. Thomas Allen also managed to contact Walter Halloran. In training who was present for every session of the exorcisms. Halloween if he thought rolling was truly possessed or not. Instead of answering the question himself, Halloran recalled a conversation he had had with Father Bowden several years before when Halloween asked the priest what he thought about the official report Bowden replied, what did it matter what the examiner thought whether he said it was true or whether he said it was false people are going to agree or disagree. Bowed and told him you in I know it. We were there..

You could find all episodes of supernatural. All other park cast originals for free on spotify, and if you like what you're hearing reach on facebook and Instagram at podcast and twitter at podcast network this week, we're talking about the exorcism of a young boy known only by the pseudonym. Dough, it's considered to be the most thoroughly documented case of demonic possession in American history rolling story even went on to inspire. Hollywood classic. The exorcist. We have all that and more coming up stay with us. Anytime, your life story is made into a movie. There's always going to be a question of what's real versus what's embellished, and if your life story was made into a movie featuring a spider walking head-spinning pea soup spitting little girl that question becomes even more important. So let's go ahead and set the record straight. This will not be a retelling of the Exorcist Roland story inspired the book, but it's hardly a faithful account. But. There is a written record of what really happened. One of the priests Raymond Bishop kept a daily log throughout the exorcism because he thought it would be helpful to anyone trying to fight off demons in the future. Writer Thomas Allen received a copy of the diary in the nineteen nineties decades after the exorcist was given. The Hollywood. Treatment, Allen was researching ruins case for his own book possessed until then the log had been locked away in kept secret Alan did his own interviews and research corroborating as much of the diary as possible. There were almost forty witnesses to the different stages of Rowland's possession and their accounts match Father Bishops Allan believes that the exorcism log can be trusted as a primary source. So according to father bishop's diary one follows the story of Roland Doe and just to note to protect Rowlands privacy, his name and the names of his family members are pseudonyms. The first incidents occurred on Saturday January Fifteenth Nineteen forty nine in the family's home in Maryland thirteen-year-old Roland and his grandmother heard a loud dripping noise like a leaky faucet coming from somewhere inside but they checked every sink all of them were dry eventually they honed in on the grandmothers room the dripping seemed to be coming from the attic. So they decided it must be from a leaky pipe. But later in the night, a new sound emerged in the grandmothers room. This time it was scratching and it was the loudest underneath her bed. But again, they wrote it off as normal household noises rolands father. Kevin, thought it was probably a rodent of some kind. He promised to call an exterminator in the morning. But the exterminator couldn't find the source of the scratching. He ripped up the floorboards under the bed and lay down some poison, but there wasn't any sign of a nest or infestation but whether they could find rats or not the scratching continued even weirder it followed a set schedule. It started every night at seven PM and then die down just after midnight. This kept up for eleven days until June twenty sixth. then. The noise moved grandmother's room to Rowlands. But instead of scratching under the floorboards Rolin heard what he describes as a pair of squeaky shoes walking up and down the length of his bed. So obviously, this couldn't be explained by a rat but rowlands family had no other explanation for it. Either eventually, rollins mother Patty tried to communicate with whatever was making the noise or rather whoever? You see Kevin's sister Helen had recently passed away. Roland was particularly close to his aunt. They spent hours together whenever she came in to visit from Saint Louis and during her most recent trip in the winter of nineteen forty eight, she taught Roland to use a Ouija board aunt helen was a spiritualist meaning. She tried to contact the dead using seances mediums and we g boards spiritualist believed that the dead could see into the future and they could give the living. Advice based on what they saw, and while some religions worn that speaking to spirits is dangerous spiritualist believed there's no such thing as a bad spirit and no harm can come to someone acting as a medium. So when Aunt Helen died rolling turned to his Ouija Board for Comfort, he spent hours every day trying to reach Helen in the spirit world. He hadn't gotten much of a response from the board but in Helen had said that sometimes spirits communicate in other ways. So on the night of February, second as the squeaking shoes marched up and down ruins bed for the sixth night in a row, his mother Patty decided to ask if it was helen making all that noise while Patty Rowland and his grandmother laid on the bed she timidly offered. If you are. Helen. Knock three times after a few seconds they felt three waves of air pass over them which produced three distinct knocks on the floor beneath them. Patty asked again. If you are Helen, tell me positively by knocking four times. They felt four more pulses through the air for more knocks Patty. Felt like the had confirmation it was Helen. But. Then the familiar scratching noise started again, only this time it wasn't coming from under the floorboards it came from inside the mattress. They could feel something worming its way around the springs almost like a little claw. Then, the mattress began to shake gentle at first and then more and more violently then suddenly stopped. And when it did the edges of the bedspread flew out from where they had been tucked under the mattress and according to Father Bishops Record stood up above the surface of the bed in a curled forum at the held up with starch. Pati cautiously reached out and touched the stiff coverlet when she did it relaxed falling perfectly back into place but they could all still here the little claw scratching. Didn't stop until after midnight and every night following the noise came back for weeks. Then, other strange things started happening to Roland and I mean, really strange. Like a pair in an orange flying across the room, a Bible sailing off the bookcase and his desk at school slamming into other desks seemingly of its own volition. Patty and Kevin didn't know what to think. They knew Roland was upset over Helen's death. So was all just some kind of cry for attention misguided grief but Rolin swore he wasn't doing it and in some cases, his parents had to admit that they didn't see how he could be. Like one afternoon while some relatives were visiting rolling was sitting in a heavy armchair in the living room wall his family members watched the chair lifted a few inches off the floor. Then flipped over completely dumping Roland onto the ground trying to catch him in ally Kevin Sat in the chair and tried to flip it over himself but it was too heavy for him to lift Roland uncle also tried, but he couldn't flip it either then while the men were wrestling with the armchair avai started to levitated off the table it whizzed through the air and smashed into the opposite wall. It was pretty clear. Something.

"As she said well doctors and even then I knew I don't like blood not going to be doctors and lawyers and I'm like well. That sounds kind of boring. And then she said architects architects. What's an architect? And she said well they built buildings and at that point. I knew I wanted to be an architect and because I love buildings I loved the built environment. I love the just the energy of a building just looking at a building and seeing what the dialogue it has with you. Every building had saying something. It's many times negative. But they're all saying something. Yeah and so That's were rolling and I was sort of driving around. La yesterday and we passed by a police station. Really sharp jagged amber rocks outside. Like I guess they sort of like how you would normally see shrubbery or topiary or something. These rocks as if to say. Don't come here. Don't sit here or whatever. It was really like an odd bit of like defensive design and said every building said something to you that was in skid row by the way That that was don't even think about laying down around here and I think that's really unfortunate but that's that's the language architecture does have that ability to speak and so from from that point. I wanted to be an architect and I was very fortunate to have role models or to see architects. Who looked like me at a very early age. That was a blessing. So that was in Indianapolis you those role models. Yes in I was about to fourth grade. We went on a field trip to an architect's office was Walter Blackburn. I didn't know anything about anything. Except he's an architect he's black and I want to be an architect so I guess I'm GonNa be architectures. That was a blessing. It really was. I didn't know at that time that you don't really get to see those those role models that was a very fortunate set of event because in my mind. I wanted to be an architect. I saw a black architect I saw office. So what's the problem? Although there were plenty of people who didn't think I could be an architect when I was in high school graduating my guidance. Counselor I told him I WANNA go to architecture school. At that time I had a work study program where I worked. I go to school in the morning. I worked at the City Hall in Indianapolis on the twentieth floor. A Counselor said you got a great job with benefits. Were you WANNA go to architecture school for just call? Look Dan. How's like but but on the serious tip just think how many young black men have been discouraged from following their dreams because they didn't see a role model and they had a person of authority that told them they couldn't do it And that that was disturbing. Yeah you had asked me to serve yesterday. Sorta during our drive like drive. We were at humor park at the out of remember. What the name of the coffee show. How cool how cool. Okay we red hot and cool and you were asking me sort of out of the three hundred plus people I've talked to like what's one of the common things and I was telling you like. It's sort of that like lack of a role model or person that they can see. That's in some position of authority or whatever when their child when their in their formative years to say okay. This is something that I can do myself like seemed to be a very sort of common thread. So That's interesting that you were able to kind of have that as an early influence for you. Was it like that? Also at ball state when you're studying architecture no architecture is is in. That's where I started to learn. It's back then and today is there's a white male elitists profession the curriculum you get indoctrinated into the white male elite us. And you don't even know it is just de facto. The architects the classical architects. The modern architects the cutting edge architects. They were all white male with no exception at that time. And that's something that to this day. Disturbs me in terms of the architectural curriculum? And how one is indoctrinated into a certain way of thinking where you don't see yourself you don't see your culture. Yeah you don't see a way to express who you are. You have to find a way to fit in and to speak that language when your language is just as relevant if not more relevant if given the chance and given the venue to express into practice it reminds me of This is an essay by the late. Sylvia Harris it's in this anthology from Steven Heller called education of a graphic designer and so she has an essay in there titled Searching For an African American design aesthetic or think it's black design aesthetic but she talks about mostly about education and how for black students often learning out of imitation as opposed to kind of like what their culture is about so they learn about Swiss styles in Germany styles and Dutch styles etc. But then it's like well if I'm a black design student are we learning about Nigerian style or Botswanan styles or South African styles and the answer is no you know and I wonder. Why is that still today? When we have access to the Internet we start to know our history available but yet we still don't know who we are when I was at ball state and I don't know how a why I did it. I research the Pyramids and the construction of the Pyramids and was was crazy. I didn't realize they were because the Egyptians were black because those illustrations that I research they were all just people drew illustrations of how they were built with white looking. Egyptians and so I knew it was an Africa but it wasn't until far after I graduated and I went to Egypt that I saw those folks look like me. Yeah they look just like me. We design those pyramid. The folks that look like me designed structures that far exceed what the classical Greek temples were that far exceed any monuments that have been built to this day were designed and built by people like me and so that looked like me and so that open up a door to me to explore more about what what else do I don't know what else have I been indoctrinated. And that is not true. And that's the journey on one to this day to discover who we are as a people so that we can express our design aesthetic that comes from our spirit that comes from some some discipline that you've been given and that you've been taught but it comes from your spirit there it's a we are a very spiritual people and. I think that we are in danger of losing that spiritual connection because we are so busy. Trying to adapt adopt and fit in to what popular culture is which is not us. When did you end up moving to la? Was it right after Balsa? Yep So my ass. People actually well. Why don't you come to la? Say you've been Indianapolis ever be like. It's a great place to raise a family. It really is but in terms of a career in architecture. I can imagine where what.

She went Henrietta waited as long as she dared before throwing off the covers and sliding off the bed when her bare feet touched down. One of them slid a wet and sticky. Patch on the floor blood Berta 's blood, a shiver ran up, her spine as she tiptoed towards the door shoes. Clutched in her spare hand Henrietta crept out of the room, she passed the witches room with agonizing slowness measuring. How much weight she put on each foot before proceeding when she heard her stepmother snoring, she stopped? And I d a forming with a deep breath. She pushed open the door to the witches room ill says room was even darker than her daughters, since her curtains remained drawn overnight, but Henrietta did not need to see clearly the table. She was looking for never moved. It was where the witch stored her magic wand, Henrietta felt her way along the wall using the witches snores to keep her oriented, in the darkness, she walked as lightly as she could holding her breath for fear of X hailing too loudly. Eventually, she felt her foot brush against a table leg. She then felt her way through the trinkets on the surface until she grasped the wand. A spark ability trinity passed from the stick to her palm when she gripped, it Henry Etta almost laughed in shock and relief. Once she left the witches room, Henrietta, flew through the house with dreamlike speed hallway kitchen front steps. There was only one place to go and only one person who would help her her sweetheart Roland. Whatever unspoken contract, she had with the witch. For adopting her was truly broken. She reached Rowlands farmhouse and pounded on the door with all her might for a horrible moment. Henrietta worried that Roland slept so deeply that the witch would wake and catch her before Roland even heard her knocking, but the moment passed and the door opened revealing a bleary eyed Roland. We'll thank heavens my stepmother, killed her own daughter and thinks she killed me. When the sun rises, and she sees what she's done. I'll be lost. She was almost out of breath when she realized Roland was barely understanding anything. She said, so she collected herself. And told him the story from the very beginning from the apron, he'd given her to the murder to the theft of her stepmother's magic wand, she saw the sleep follow away from his eyes with every new detail Rowlands, brow, knitted and concern. But it's almost dawn. How shall we put enough distance between ourselves and your stepmother?.
