Like game is a very good rapper who has had some good albums. The documentary was not a classic. That was a very good out. That's just, but then people was like, what about the red eye? What a cheese piece, and I go through all those albums are like, Jesus piece was done. I was like, they're good. Don't get me wrong, they're good albums, but I think other rappers have had better runs. Then game. He's definitely not top 20 all time. That's crazy. That was Luke. It's always like, who's more consistent in the game? Kendrick Kendrick is in. Yeah, you want me to go down a list, all these consistent rappers? Like, I might like schoolboy Q now more than I like game. I do. Oxymoron is a better album than I think any album game has ever had. I agree. So we're getting, yeah, that's what I'm saying. Even in the West Coast is dicey, but you can make an argument. I'm like, that's cool. After like ten, it gets like whatever. But all time, 20? No, absolutely. All right, so that being said, game's not top 20 all time. No. Not there. But you mentioned that we had another hell of an album, black thought dropped. Cool. What are your top albums so far of the year? Because we coasted, usually we do this in middle of June. It ends up being August. We haven't given our albums of the year yet. Kendrick and Saba are my two favorite albums. Hip hop albums this year. And. She codes will probably be up there. It's too early for me to play there now. But those are my two favorites. Kendrick and Saba have gotten the most burned from the few good things. I've listened to it twice. It's pretty good. And I'm not like a huge cyber fan, but I get it. I love so. I think stuff is great. And Kendrick is one of those albums I get it. If you don't list to it, I get it. I get it. I'm not going to argue with anybody who was like, I can't listen to it. I was like, I get it. But die hard is like my favorite song. I still think that Kendrick album was made. I'm not always in that mood. I gotta give me a little rain outside. You gotta get it.

"And so now you put some investment dollars into and it's really about amplifying that. Building the team, starting to invest a little bit more in marketing, which the company hadn't done before. And exploring retail. But we take, you know, we really take a long-term perspective on things like that. And so for us, I'm much more interested in brands that look like that than brands that yes, to your point, like someone spun it up in a business school class. Because it's that authenticity, right? Like you want to see that, that stickiness, right? There's this core group of consumers who love this brand. And bootstrap, right? So I always say this. If you can get to more than a $1 million in sales, bootstrap something is working. Because you can't fake that. And so that is, we love to look at and work with companies like that. That's so funny that you mentioned Gloria because one of her first retail accounts was one of my friends ecommerce sites of a kind, which is now since closed and was bought by Bed Bath & Beyond, but you know, I've known about that brand for a long time and I'm wondering for you because that is a brand that's been building, building buzzing, buzzing, below the surface. And that is not as safe flashy as a bread that's like, hey, I got my peel order at Sephora. I just launched 6 months ago, which, you know, equally, they're both important. But I'm wondering, how do you distill building community? 'cause that's a very loose term in beauty right now. Oh, I have community. That doesn't mean a million Instagram followers or TikTok followers, like what does that mean to an investor and to an investor like you? Yeah, that's certainly the right question to ask because what you are really trying to get at is is there a core group of consumers who truly love this brand. They are recommending it to their friends, they're engaging with a brand on social. They are sticky repeat purchasers. And so some of that, I think you can, you can get at by looking at the data. You know, and not to suggest that it's all like a data exercise, but I do think now that you can much earlier via social and D2C data assess to some extent. What's going on here? And so that is something that we focus on, but I would say equally important. There's an overlay with driven by intuition, right? And you sort of like I said, you kind of getting at like, you know when you see it and so I think that it's an art and a science, I think. And I'm sure that that's you can appreciate that. But that is how we're approaching it. And I would to loop back to the first point that you were making. I agree with you that. There isn't one playbook. And so as we think about building our portfolio, there will be some brands that look like noto, right? That have been gradually building over a few years, and then we see there's an opportunity to really accelerate this..

"I think that what I saw 5 to 6 years ago was this strong and consumer demand for brands that were unique and differentiated and really spoke to them and had a strong values orientation and felt special and had a strong founder story. As distinct from the legacy brands of the past. I think that you raise a really good point, which is how does the future if we think about this next decade, how will that look similar to or different from what has been going on over the past half dozen years? And that's something that I think about a lot because there's no question that it's the space is much more crowded now. There are incredibly talented founders, but there are a huge amount of huge number of them. And so that is a tricky thing. And so while I certainly continue to believe that consumer interest in independent brands is powerful and continues that is growing. I do think that there are real questions in my mind about how big can some of these brands get. And we can talk about how that relates like investment strategy. You know how much money they should raise and things like that. Because the space has certainly changed a lot over the past half dozen years. Yeah, I think that's interesting to know because some of the markers that you were talking about that were new and innovative, you know, 6 or 8 years ago, you know, clean female founders, D2C businesses. I mean, those are all table stakes. You have to have all of those tables. Yeah, so how do you kind of figure out which brands have it today and which brands are worth investing in? Because as a growth investor, you know, there has to be a return at the end. You're necessarily not following the same trends as makeup's back, skin care is slowed, hair care is growing right now. I mean, yes, exits are eventually important. But yeah, tell me a little bit about that. Yeah, so great question. We always have to be thinking about terminal value, right? And in other words, is this a brand that we can see, as you said, having an exit at some point in the future. And I would separate that from, you know, there are lots of really interesting celebrity or creator brands that are being launched all the time. And I think that there's probably only a small number of them that will ultimately be long-term sustainable businesses. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, right? That's a business model. Like sell a bunch of products and then see how it goes. But as an investor, we really have to be focused on brands that are building for the long term, right? And then have a terminal value that will hopefully be captured in an exit at some point, as you say. And so certainly a couple of the things that we look for, one is when we're looking at brands. We do continue to be very, very focused on founder, and that is like a big piece of our investment thesis..

Howard stanton who is coming to us from borneo more specifically from the region of saba and howard is the owner of eco. Adventure resort in the area howard. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me. I hope i can enlighten your listeners. To the days of coming to sabah. Well i asked around and said i was looking for people to talk about coming to borneo to the various regions of borneo. We'd get into that. There's more than one and i was told. Howard you're the guy so okay. Great to enlighten people and encourage people to come because bologna is a fantastic place. Absolutely fantastic place to come when we talk about borneo and they're being different regions so tell us a little more. What is saba versus the rest of borneo for instance so blown you third largest island in the world is actually made up of three different countries. I suppose zeus of it is the indonesian side indonesian bonia and that's like the bottom two-thirds then brunei the sultanate brunei and then me has two states on bonia one is sarah lack and then the other one is sabah. And that's where i live. I live in sabah. Sabah is roughly the size of the uk. Or i didn't realize it was that big okay or that. The uk was that small. I guess there's two ways of looking at that but this is very much and actually. That's one of the slight problems that people have is. They underestimate the size of the place. Getting one side to the other can take a whole day of traveling so when they start to plan the right tanneries they look at what they want to see and then they stopped the plan to get there but underestimate the travel time which can pull problems. If people are on a shorter schedule as it were shelter itinerary. Excellent and born obviously being close by indonesia close by malaysia. That's why they have portions of that so we're in the pacific getting closer to asia. And you're in the upper right hand corner of borneo. Why should someone come to saba war as requested. Sebah is a fantastic place is unique is thirty seven different indigenous cultures..

"Really have a pesky insect problems They're all. The restaurants are outdoor dining or at least semi outdoor dining. As soon as you come up from the harbor lights and hot. You know it's nice to be hot and sunny when you're diving but once you start making your way up from the harbour earth temperature changes and it's really very comfortable climate so that's very interesting that you mentioned that altitude so maybe after you go do a ninety foot dive d you need to be concerned about traveling more than a thousand feet in altitude to go to where you're staying. It's actually very good question in a question that's been posed by people for years Divers alert network they known gurus of the industry for safety and science have actually come here to the islands and done doppler testing on divers at the harbor and at their accommodations after diving and they could find no Significant difference and the report for that is actually on our website so the diving section of our website. there is a page dedicated to that of diving altitude Certainly we recommend after diving. Go running up the mountain or you know. Do strenuous exercise But it is fully address on that website page in k. Fantastic i will link to that in the show notes. Is there anything else that you'd like to add about experiencing seibu or diving cba. Well one thing. Let chad talk but There is a a number of unique programs so we have a triathlon where we say even the hill. It's even the swim is uphill. There's carnival like every island are carnivals taking place this week so it's always later part of july but in two thousand three i started a very unique program that we've won international awards for its called seat and learn and that's a a full programme that runs the month about tober and we'd bringing scientists from around the world and they do nighttime dynamic presentations at different venues in so it's fun you go to different places around the islands and if you enjoy that scientist and are interested in their area of expertise you can join them on hands on fuel projects so whether that is snorkeling diving or hiking. All of the program is free of charge added value to come in the month of leftover. Listen to that you could Experience unpainted powerpoint presentations learn from a scientist and then go be a part of that. Study under water or above water died. Sounds absolutely fantastic. And i am a sucker for a good powerpoint presentation. Let me tell you. Yeah think of ted talk in a tropical bar at five thirty okay. You're speaking my love language. Right now i i love.

Who specializes in gin and tonics. And even if you think. He don't like gin and tonic. He will make one that you can't believe he has eighty five different types of japan's imported tonics. So this is the kind of stuff you see on this little island. Then i have to mention one more place so the coli. I was opened again. And this is a place. Where actual cottages in the forest which will be open hopefully within the year but they have reopened the restaurant so you can actually dine in the rainforest unsafe up and it's a spectacular experience to walk down would access it. Wow so you just mentioned a few lodges and resorts there So someone's thinking about coming to save a to dive to adventure and hike Where would you say are your top places to stay while the great thing about save. Is you get what you pay for. And so and there's something for every style budget so at the lower price. Range is among cottages and these are built as european styles. Sleeping cottages where the focus is for people who would rather spend their money on dining and diving and just need a place to sleep. They are wooden cottages with a million dollar view So that's the one end of the spec young and at the other end of the spectrum is giuliani's hotel and queens gardens resort which are more in the two hundred dollars per night range. But that's how affordable save is in inbetween we have the cottage club solaire dounia but would also is unique to save it is there are a number of fantastic private house rentals and villas and this is something that see savings been doing for nearly thirty years as we function as a travel agent Because reno the properties like no one else and we have no financial interest in any of them so we will put together a complete package and regularly.

So there's a firm to work Options as well and that's becoming more and more prevalent But it's really grateful and at reasonable versus okay. What are your top three favorite restaurants there. Well i admit that my list is going to be a little bit skewed. Because i only eat at restaurants that i can take my dog to okay all right so just putting that out there and i have young children who all right. I'm no offense to any of the restaurants that i'm not going to lists but probably my favorite restaurant to go to. The island is shaved bouba which is conveniently located directly above the dye shop. So when we're in the shop we smell the food while they're prepping it and it just gets us ready to go And what makes them unique. Is they do a new menu. Every single week said they are never serving the same booed. I know what just the other week. They had like a mango based Menu all the mangoes were picked wrong. their trees on their property and they did all this different stuff they do the most fantastic taco thursday would ever been to. I mean they do a beef taco chicken officials in a vegetarian and desert taco. And they're just them tastic yet. Gourmet level up up seven three chefs because they also are part of queens gardens resort so they have a dutch ship. We have a guy from El salvador They have another chef from europe so yes by variety My second go to restaurant. That i do here is more casual. Location long-haul barn grill They're probably the easiest place to get into. And that's kind of last minute. We got stuck somewhere and we don't to cook so we're gonna go there. They have great pizza. Many many many different types of pizza's good burgers. Good pasta They have an excellent fish and again they have just a chef that you would think is where you know when you think of like a casual bar and grill type restaurant. You wouldn't think that they have a shack the quality that they do. And everything's fantastic there and my third favorite place to eat. I'm gonna throw a little bit of a curve ball because they're a bakery. We have the most amazing bakery that is open every morning until two thirty except on sundays. And they're the busy bee. There's one up winward side in one down in the bottom and they make fantastic sandwiches and i by probably five loaves of bread from the the week Excellent little sweet rolls. Just a really awesome bakery. But it's a nice place to get a sandwich. I have to add to this. Because i'm older and i Like to think. I have a little more refined cases. Well 'cause i'm not going out with a five eight year old. And i do have a dog but i can also leave him at home But there are The brigadier in restaurants has been the known restaurant or more than twenty five years on the island absolute top notch Tropics cafe is part of giuliani's hotel and they have their open normally breakfast lunch and dinner and fantastic food from you know everything from sandwiches and salads to great steak on queen's gardens resort is the islands known luxury property but.

The caribbean only in the caribbean do astra qods emit a nukus beat of light and the male strings them together to tell the female what species he is. So if you time night dive normally fifteen minutes before. It's really dark for about the first half hour if it's not to turban of water then you will get this amazing light show and save is one of the only places you can still see that because we don't have coastal development so there's no light pollution there's no building and on sadly there's not so many places left in the world where that happens. Yeah wow that sounds incredible. Absolutely incredible curious For the topography of diving seib are there some steep dropoffs that would allow for blackwater diving where you can witness the diurnal vertical migration yes there is. That's actually something that were exploring adding to our offering to customers in the near future. Were not quite there yet. Ready with coming off of cova but we hope to within the next twelve months Be able to offer some more unique experiences like blackwater dives because it gets deep really quickly here sue unlike hawaii where you have to go quite a distance offshore. You'd be able to accomplish here on sabe with a much shorter vote rides. Yeah ten min- sure you're in over fifteen hundred feet of water. Oh yeah you could absolutely be doing some blackwater out there just if you have the nerve. Oh it's it's the best. It's the best. That's my favorite thing to do. Oh my gosh told that we should have some of these really funky deepwater. Eels out there to any other question is yeah how deep..
Experiences You Should Have
"saba" Discussed on Experiences You Should Have
"It's very unique to anywhere else. That i've ever dove with the different topography. You've got the volcanic kinda structure on the west side of the island. You've got kind of a more organic reef on the east side more a shallows shallow a gradual sloping reef. And then you get up towards the pinnacles where we've got diamond raw rock menopause shoals and then out the main highlight which is our pinnacles just offshore. And they're spectacular. You go down there. And you know you're swimming off the plateau and you just have a compass heading and it's just blew in front of you and then you're at about eight feet and coming up from the blue is this. It's called the eye of the needle in. Its maybe fifteen twenty foot across and it just comes up. The top of its at ninety ninety. Five feet just christine. This huge barrel. Spungen almost always. There's a big green moray. He'll that lives on the top of it and you get to see him when you get there and it just really impressive. 'cause you're swimming out in the balloon then all the sudden pinnacle rises up out of the sea floor and you can't see the bottom. It's pretty spectacular. It's actually kind of cool when the visibility isn't crystal clear because then it's even a little you know like what's out here and then all of a sudden it's there and Yeah it's just spectacular. Was actually the first dive i ever did. On and every square inch of it is covered in marine life so corals and sponges from that great depth all the way to the top. So anytime you have a structure out in bluewater. It's becomes an awareness in the desert so because that structure is up up there and it has attracted the growth on it. And it's you know there's up wellings out there. So it attracts little bitty things and of course bigger bigger bigger thing so when you're diving it you have to look everywhere because you're looking at this amazing structure but you're also in bluewater so you need to be looking to see if there's sharks coming around. There's big schools of jack's i wouldn't be unusual to see four different species of grouper on that dive. There a resident turtle that tux itself under the ledge so yeah it's just an absolute world-class dive About ten years ago sport diver magazine ran. You know the top. Ten dives in the caribbean. I think we've even gotten world status on that dive site. Of course it's just one of thirty dive sites but it is something really unmatched. Wow you get the wa who as well as tuna. That will kind of hang out there when the silverside schooling and it's a lot of fun i can just picture it now. I would love. I would love to see that now. What about night diving on the island is that we do fantastic night. Dives not only. Do we have your normal things. Like basque stars at unfurl at night and opportunistic feeders of tarpon and nurse sharks and we get different types of lobster coming out but something that's very unique to save a is..

She was are single map match money. Line pick on yesterday's dsp of the day to knock off show aboard. You look at their track record. Chapel inca was one in one against you or in her career. But one match. She lost a three-set thriller in paris. The one-match she won comfortable straight-set victory her numbers constant in that match sabotage or success on serve is what wavered all of that is to say coming into the match we knew savile inca had the power advantage and that she had the sort of dare i say skew firepower that would just disrupt the plays of own gebran jamie. You are slicing expert here at cracked rackets the forefather of the forehand slice so lot. More difficult to hit those slices a lot. More difficult to attempt to hit drop shot returns. When you've got one hundred twenty two one hundred thirty miles per hour bombs coming at you. As i serves to win you hang a second server you just leave in a tackle serve in the box that i return is coming at you flat and deep at your feet that sort of firepower that arena savile. Inca has and we've talked about it before. Should she ever win a slam. She will immediately. Being inducted into serena williams power tennis country club. It was on display today. Halfway through that i said she realized okay. This matches on my racket and the most impressive thing was to see the poise with which she executed her game plan and ultimately got the job. Yeah i was really impressed. And the start of this match you know so dicey for saba linka getting through that service gore was cutting really good pressure on her from the start and so i. I did expect this to be more of a battle than it wasn't and i think that just speaks to sabah. Lenka being able to sort of calm things down right out of the gate and then just like you said realize. Hey this is my racket and play smart tennis dictate. Well trust her first strike brand and she she did it really well. You know i again. When i first tuned into this match at the beginning i was like oh boy. We are in for a roller coaster. And then you know it really didn't end up being that what i mean. It was a somewhat close scoreline but quick match Asaba saba lincoln took care of business. Eligible had some chances really didn't do enough of protecting her own. Second serve apple. Inca i mean just kept things like you said on. Her racket dictated ranjit around really. Didn't give her the option to introduce all that creativity variety and awkward way of putting pressure on opponents. Stab linkages in some cases said. Hey you're gonna give me this fall monoploy off the court. And so that's that's that's the saddle lincoln that we've come to know and again really good to see or be able to put it on display against a player like jabbar. Who's had so much success.

"Serena williams has locked in her fifteenth fourth round appearance since two thousand and one incidentally the same year her opponent anastasia popova was born tested in the first set. The twenty three time grand slam champion clicked into gear in the second to win seven. Six six to williams has road tested a new return stance this week but she has mixed feelings about it. It's very hard to move away from something that works well for you and for me. Change is the single most difficult thing in my life. I don't embrace change very well. But i know the importance of it so i hate my new return but it works and i think is for the best and i love it but i'm still you know getting used to it and sometimes i wanna go back to the old way but I feel like this is a better. I'm more consistent with my return and have better results. Williams next task is arena. Saba linka in the belarussians. First round of sixteen appearance but former australian plant lease smiley isn't convinced williams has what it takes watching her play. Today she was down a break early. She didn't really look all that great to me. You know. I covered one of the really matches and she looked pretty good. Hit a couple of two hundred caddies but today she wasn't quite there and it's interesting when you get older you'll good is still really good that you bad is not as good you know really the differential between you.

How to Connect to Your Humanity and Change the World
"Today. We're going inside the head of Young Pueblo Aka Diego Perez. He's a writer poet and activist who explores his own mind to create poems about the mind. His poems or meditations in themselves and often talk about meditation teachings directly. He's also instagram famous with three hundred, twenty, nine, thousand millennial followers who receive as simple visual poems about meditation daily in their feet. Welcome young blow. Thank you so much for having me Emmett set of the year. Yeah, it's wonderful conversation. Awesome. So let's just start in dive right in because most people probably curious about the first thing they heard young Pueblo like who is this young logo is noted to meet the Guy Behind Proba tell us about young Pueblo on how that came out. was. Name that came to me a bunch of years ago. I'd say back sometimes it's funny thirteen I think the name came to me, and then over time I really developed a meaning. Around honey or team twenty fifteen I realized that I wanted to take great seriously as it was around the time where I saw that. Betaine is having a real effect in my less democracy game meditation course back in. July of two thousand twelve and after doing a few silence and David Austin courses I realized that a lot of the burden that was sort of limiting my mind's in regards to. Zaidi sadness where. They weren't totally radical, but there were decreasing and I was noticing that. I, was really feeling better and I felt like I had more choices in my mind as I could see the world a little more clearly, and then I can navigate my own actions in a way that was much more productive to my personal happiness. So In, sort of pushed me into wanting to righty might people now that healing yourself was actually a real possibility has to be. I know that for myself. I kind of went into meditation has an experiment just as I was always curious about it and it felt like the right fit so I didn't really know that's what I was Gonna get out I. Think I knew that I was going to learn a bunch of things but I didn't know that I was actually going to feel better and it wasn't until after of delving deeper into the process into the actual practice I started seeing that I so lows better sort of into writing. and. The idea of young Bible kind of really warm related around it's my understanding of the world that we are all very young collectively. If you take all humanity were all very young you know it doesn't matter if you're ninety years old is you take us as a whole giant collective we have so much to learn. The bucs Amina's for. Up when we were little children. When we went to school, we were trying to simplest things are teachers were really. Trying to get us to not hurt each other to tell the truth to be kind to one another and to generally just you know it's even like clean up ask yourself things are seem so simple that we can do as individuals but as a human collective e don't know how to do these things at all. A. Me. got. Sort of a signal that. We have a lot of growing up to as humanity and a lot of I. Think a lot of that growing up center happened during the century. We have so many big challenges ahead of us that will hopefully help us row. That this sort of. A. Renaissance, I would call it. That's happening around the mind. Is GonNa be a big big part of humanity mature. SO THAT'S A. Really helpful perspective. So somebody who has a two year old myself I spent a lot of time teaching him some very, very basic things like heating is bad. I'm sorry in some days he's amazing at it in Sunday's he just gets brought by his own emotions, his own desires and hitting back at the window. In it's interesting to look at our humanity as being a very similar place lessons that we've learned over and over again, our childhood yet they're returning in the adult hood of the individual, but still the sort of childhood of the collective. Beautiful by. Where do you see our evolution going? What do you think the path down that road is I think it's interesting because people have very different aspirations. So I wouldn't want to try to say you know all human existence is in this direction but I would say that to get to a place where we're not arming one another where we. Are Mentally ill in ourselves. That army another as arguing when sell it doesn't take. Much Work Right. Having that understanding that you know is literally to my benefits and not you is very different from what sailing Total Liberation Enlightenment's. That's actually a very easier accomplish many think that's where we're really heading as a humanity in our evolution that we're trying to lift ourselves up into that understanding that Oh right? It's not. It's not to my benefit at all to harm you in any way it actually helps my personal life to support you in your freedom, your sixty etcetera. So forth, so me I like to think about it in. In the immediate. Immediate future being like next year is not like the whole seizure. SABA. But it really is trying to get ourselves to that point where or. Individuals in because that's an idea that we've had. Throughout, all of history. Having an idea intellectually is very different from being out experiences, experience Adiba yourself or deeply being able to you'll that you know that it's your benefits are mothers I think Ruby's different practices Asami different people are engaging. Different introspective medias including meditation. That that will help get. To that point where it's like Oh right now, of course, not only do I in my mind but I. Feel my body and now I'm GonNa find better solutions than our.

Vernon Lockhart: Art On the Loose
"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks. So that's how artem loose in the name came in existence with the story behind it to

Ethiopias struggle to stay united
"Ethiopia has split once before in nineteen ninety-three. Eritrea Ethiopia had annexed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two voted to secede after a decades long war for its independence. That break was not a clean one. Another war between Ethiopia and Eritrea followed in the late Nineteen Ninety S. After which retrieve retreated into isolation militarization and paranoia because a sort of North Korea on the Red Sea. Ending hostility between Eritrea and Ethiopia officially accomplished as recently as two thousand eighteen was considered such a feat of deploying the see that it one. Recently, arrived Prime Minister B amid the Nobel. Peace Prize. I was a young soldier when well broke out between Utopia and. I witnessed firsthand the ugliness of war in frontline battles. There are those suave never seen war, but glorify romance is it They have not seen the fear they have not seen the Arctic. They have not seen the restriction or break nor are they failed the mournful and bitterness of war after the carnage WAR IS EPITHELIAL FAIL FOR ALL INVOLVED Ahmed may now face another test of his diplomatic capacities to stop another portion of Ethiopia setting up shop on its own this week the Ethiopian state of Gray held elections despite instructions from the federal government not to. Federal government prefer to correspond election because of the COVID nineteen. But the people of to. Know that the reason for postponing the election is not covid nineteen. We believe that it's political than the heads issue. So and we know how much we paid for such an election to happen or to occur. And the government the people to have paid the lives of sixty thousand people we don't want to pay lives. In order to have the constitution that we have already, we know that this is a threat to the constitutions that we have it some twenty years back. To agree is easier appears northernmost region lying along what is now the westernmost stretch of the border with era that tegray has issues with the government in outer suburbs that can be gleaned from the briefest survey of the composition of Ethiopia's national parliament the house of Peoples Representatives Ov- it's five hundred and forty seven seats five, hundred twelve occupied by the Prosperity Party a unity coalition assembled late last year by Ali Ahmed. The thirty five a held by the People's Liberation Front, and now more than ever there might be a clue in the name. To understand how we got here a brisk through the. backstory is probably in order.

Between The Lines
Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Let's talk about impressive. Ethiopia Tae to Tool Tae to which is the I'm horrid word for son was born around eighteen fifty in deborah taper.

The Indicator from Planet Money
The Bubble That Broke Kuwait
"And we've got got a doozy for you today. I'm joined by. Dr Is Rafi on Darius I cardiff Yes today I've got a story for you about one of the greatest stock bubbles of all time which occurred in of all places Kuwait Kuwait. Yes and the story begins in the late. Nineteen seventies during what is known as Kuwait's golden era so Kuwait had been this kind of sleepy desert outpost and then due to the massive influx of oil money. It became this bustling metropolis list. And I actually talked to a man named Saba Araya's who was a prominent businessman in Kuwait around this time and he talks about what Kuwait looked like when he was a kid. Growing growing up like Trinity. We have running water up happening structure The there was no air conditioning for looks up over elevators. And by the late nineteen seventies Kuwait had become this modern metropolis and it also become the financial center of the Middle East because they region was rocked by turmoil. At this point in Kuwait with its really well regulated financial sector and it's relatively stable political. Climate became came this magnet for all of this money that was fleeing turmoil. Elsewhere in the region is a pretty classic emerging markets story starts doing some things right and then all this money he starts coming in from other places And obviously that drove up prices in Kuwait's official stock market but it was very very tightly. Regulated it you know. There are lots of regulations about what kinds of companies could be listed there who was allowed to invest. How are they allowed to invest and made it very stable but it also made it kind of a boring place to invest all this money? That wants to invest in Kuwaiti companies. And if it can't do their maybe it will find some other way to invest invest in them. Well it did find another way. Basically right across the street from the official Kuwaiti stock market. A sort of love informal unofficial stock market developed it was known as the soup ALMANAC and it was literally in a air conditioned parking garage on the site eight of the old camel market and sugamo knock literally translates to the market at the place where the camels rest traders started gathering there and trading trading stocks amongst each other. And I spoke to Ben Craig who is a economic policy adviser for the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. And he's written a lot about the suit GALMOC Manakh And I have to clarify here. That everything he said in our interview only represents his personal views. He doesn't represent the views of the Federal Reserve. But I talked to him about this sort of informal formal market that developed. It was seen as an area where you could have fun but what Claes stays in the soup. I don't think I've heard that one before for we'll basically the government said hey. We like having this innovative kind of risky market with big returns. But we don't want the risk to infect the rest has to the economy so they put all these rules in place that said banks are not allowed to touch the super. They can't lend money to people who are investing there. It's got to be completely cut off from the financial sector her but of course traders don't like this because they don't want to just trade with the money they have in their pocket they WANNA borrow money in and you know potentially get even higher returns turns and so the system developed between the traders in the soup that I think was a little bit ingenious. The couldn't borrow money from the bank. So what they did is they had this system of writing post dated checks so basically card if I want to buy a stock for meal. It's worth one hundred dollars now and I think it's going to go up in the future. All right you a check I I say one hundred ten dollars and date it for a year from now you know like if your rent is due on the first you don't get paid till the third. Yeah date your check on the third. That's right that's what they were doing but they would do it for a year and in that situation. It's like you just lent me money for a year but then this sort of interesting thing happened with check check itself became a little bit like cash so suppose that maybe I want to buy some of that stock. I don't have any cash but I have that posted hosted shack and so I just passed that posted check onto a nar trader. It was essentially a way for these traders to print their own money and then Craig cautions against drawing any comparison to other markets. But in my opinion it's not all that different from what happened. In the run-up to the financial central crisis where mortgage-backed securities became much bigger than mortgages in this case the checks that were backed by stocks became much bigger than the stocks themselves selves. And thanks to this. System of kind of endless unregulated credit the Kuwaiti stock market skyrocketed. It became the third heard largest stock market in the world. Bigger even than London and Sobowale riotous says that this was turning people into instant millionaires. He recounted the story to me of going to his friend's apartment and I saw this huge big plate full with the new caveat. You know they by the House and then it was. Ten Cuba's maybe have the token of caveat on on the table I couldn't believe David and this market is started to draw in teachers and students and and he he talks about how you know. Doctors are quitting their jobs to run down to the Sukhoi ANOC and start trading eating stocks. It just became this national obsession that classic mania everybody sees it going up they think it will continue going up and we'll tell you how they started.
Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine
Sawbones: Auto-Brewery Syndrome
"Auto brewery syndrome. Have you heard of this I mean is this the pariah lie and pretend like you haven't been talking about it's been in the media her this folks had you heard about it before I told you know but your dad had and that's something but your your dad watches a lot of oddball stuff he keeps track of like weird things in the news you wouldn't have to watch oddball stuff to find this this is is this is infiltrated the people like to use the MSM mainstream media the lame stream media in my book. I thought you call them I see I don't I love the mainstream media love the media love it love journalists thank you I'm on the pro side but I used to be I know well no I'm married a guy who worked at best buy journalist I prefer games editorialist really really was more about bringing my own fun funky take two things than I was like real hard news you know I so there have been a ton of articles goals in various news outlets on the Internet I think this has made some lake news stories on TV and newspapers and stuff because it's a really interesting ninety a- and it's all based on an article that was published this past summer and this is not the first case of this ever or the first article that was ever published on this it just seems to be the first one that has kind of captured the attention of the public so this past summer on the B. M. J. Open gastroenterology the journal so that's a it's an online open access journal so this is captured a ton of media attention it was a case report and Literature Review that tells a story of a forty six year old pretty healthy guy who started having issues he traces it back to a finger injury in two thousand eleven he had some sort of wound on his finger and some sort of complicated injury that required a course of an antibiotic called SEF election or you may have heard the brand name Catholics so he took the whole course of the antibiotics and after he completed it he started having these strange episodes and he described them as kind of a brain the fog and you'll you'll hear that term throughout this this diagnosis in this syndrome and I always I always think that I always get nervous when I hear the term brain rain fog because you you find it attached to a lot of other diagnoses that are more questionable things like chronic lyme you'll hear brain fog tied to a lot I I prefer go with having a senior moment that's what I go with eye brain fog is more like I just feel my the way people tend to describe it as like I can't you know like you feel fuzzy I would think about it like the times in my life where I've taken cold medicine I feel like that if I act had the mental capacity and say I do now if I just woke up one morning in my late teens or early twenties with this mental state I would think that I suddenly Oh man I could feel my cognitive abilities like dwindling as I as I age into decrepitude having children create permanent brain fog eh actually temporary I'm hoping it will wear off once they sleep sleep yeah like normal humans anyway he started having those symptoms uh-huh I it progress until he was having some actual like mood changes like depressive symptoms and his mood was very lay bile some personality changes does even and he finally sought care for this in twenty fourteen this went on for quite a while before he went and saw Dr and discuss these issues and the physician he saw felt it was largely a psychiatric issue and so- treated him with some antidepressant anti anxiety medications for what appeared appeared to be some sort of depressive rings or both kind of kind of diagnosis this didn't really help and everything kind of culminates nate's in this story in an early morning arrest for a Dui so he's pulled over he appears intoxicated he refuses a Breathalyzer Breathalyzer he sent to the emergency room and his blood alcohol level was found to be two hundred in the er aches so it it seems pretty straightforward at this point right you find a lot of times if you can find substance use disorders and things like depression actioner other mood disorders or other other psychiatric diagnoses can be co morbidity as they can run together you might find a slightly higher rate of one with the other or vice versa especially when one one is being is not being managed the medications we're not working for his symptoms so on the surface is it seems pretty straightforward he is you know trying to get a hold of these medical conditions he's trying to get treatment he still in the process yes it's not successful yet he has had some alcohol to try to self medicating he got caught in Dui as result now what's what's interesting is that he insisted he had not had a single alcoholic beverage even prior to this episode he says I was never much of a drinker occasionally on social situations but very rarely and in the last couple of years he hadn't been drinking at all because of all these symptoms he'd been having he didn't want any more brain fog then he was already experiencing so he is is adamant I did not drink so as people that have been doing Sabas for many years we would at this point default to something if not skepticism maybe something approaching a realistic practicality and a lot of a lot of the physicians who encountered him agreed with with what might probably initial skepticism optimism would be well it a lot of people deny Cher that they have a problem at first it would not be unusual to be embarrassed or feel guilty realized that you know this if you had been drinking I I shouldn't have done that could hurt myself or someone else I wish I hadn't I need help help this has become an issue all of those are huge things to to be able to say out loud seek out for and so it's very natural to think well he's just not telling the truth or like like when I come home and I'm like I don't know how oatmeal cream pie double decker rapper got into the car it doesn't make sense to me if you have any ideas please let me know because I'm freaked out to I'm freaking out with you write about this cream pie double decker bar right after I went to dollar general we're in this together yeah we're in this together solve this puzzle yeah here help me crack this wide open well even though the the physicians he saw the healthcare professionals he saw which he he saw several did not really believe him his aunt did and his aunt got him a breathalyzer and said I heard about something like this over in Ohio I want let's check on this breathalyzer every once in a while and see if even if you're not drinking you know it looks like your drinking on this breathalyzer see if you've still got you know alcohol all in your bloodstream even if you hadn't been drinking alcohol so he did that and he you know a sensibly found that he was blowing positives it was on the breathalyzer even though he wasn't drinking and he located this clinic in Ohio and he went there and the doctors there had seen a patient with a similar situation Jewish before like I said this wasn't the first case just kind of the first one that seems to have caught media attention and they they felt like they knew what was going on so they checked his stool will and they found saccharomyces survey and another yeast species and that one specifically is better known as brewer's yeast and from here they diagnosed him with Auto Brewery Syndrome so what this basically means is that some people get filled up with a kind of yeast it's mainly been yeast that have been implicated although a couple bacteria have been thought to possibly cause this as well but mainly piece that have filled up the intestines and we want east when we're brewing to turn sugar into alcohol right right that's the whole idea that's it that's how you brew beer whatever any kind of alcohol but in this case the carbohydrates and sugars and everything everything this patient is eating will go into the stomach into the intestines the yeast will gobble it up turn it into alcohol that alcohol will get into your bloodstream stream and you get drunk okay so that is the that is the basic theory behind Brewery Syndrome and the idea that we could fine mind elevated levels of this yeast in the stool is was thought to be proof right because you might have a little of this in your gi tract but you shouldn't shouldn't have as much as a lot of these patients are you know are finding so that was the that was what this man was diagnosed swift and like I said the docks at this office in Ohio felt like this was the likely cause because this wasn't the first time that they hit seen a case like
Chicago Speaks w/Darryl Dennard
Inaugural Black Fine Art Month
"Cannon Patricia welcome to the show hello good morning is good to be here with you dear always when we talk about. black fine art are we drawing a distinction between you know the plethora of black art that's out there. definitely. when we talk about black fine are we are talking about the creators thank you you're very familiar with the arts and there are artists who have been making giving their sweat their tears to making beautiful artwork and this whole celebration is about up lifting those are there and putting their work out there it it is very much a distinction between you know going and buying a poster are going to buy you know some other types of art but these are creative who have given their blood sweat and tears to make them feel all art and we want to recognize them we want to celebrate them and we gonna let them during this month yeah you doing this over at the do Saba museum and you have a fantastic line up what we talk about it I know that this past Thursday you had the projects sixteen nineteen to twenty nineteen of course a Chicago perspective and then next Thursday do you have Chicago's black arts movement talk to me about that yeah well the one thing we realized when we went down this road of of doing a recognition of black art with that Chicago has a tremendous history in the art some of the movement that came out of your work boxy ban on the black arts movement after a cobra the WPA have a great put hold here the put that PPL all across the country but the artists that came out of Chicago where some of the the premier artist of the WPA without that community arts center was founded here and it's still going after eighty year so there is a very substantial art history here and when we even commented today we look at from the pre near artists in the country like your agent Marcel group ran late the after gate our nic cage coming out of Chicago so we thought this is an appropriate place for it to launch but for it to go out. to the world so this is this is from coming from Chicago but it is about embracing placard across the world now I mentioned that on October tenth from six to eight PM is going to be Chicago's black arts movement then on Saturday October nineteenth from two to four PM is black card in public spaces what can we expect over to do Szabo during that particular lecture. well first off I want to make a give a big shout out to armor and that he meant that the Bible or in breaking up we went in to talk to them about that they said this is something we we can get behind and that that's exactly what they've done so when we talk about the one in public face it again you don't think about the movement that came here the muralist movement that bill Walker yeah. either way it kicked off in spread across the world they've learned from Diego Rivera out of Spain out about Mexico and I'm sorry yeah they brought that here to Chicago and then it spread to the world so we want to talk about the art in public spaces remind static is an amazing mural let's do that been doing work here in Chicago for many years that you know early in that when he was a young man he got arrested for attacking. and that is recognized internationally. so again Chicago it's such a epicenters sold so many wonderful things came out of here so we didn't want to recognize the outdoor art as well we experience that every time we drive through the neighborhood to particular about neighborhoods of color we you see these great murals whether it's in Pilson whether it's on the west side or the south side you see all these great murals that you know depict heroes in the community. right and it started right here with the wall of respective forty seventh in Langley and there have been books written about that happening fifty years ago so it just reinforces what we're saying is that there is a wonderful energy and excitement in Chicago around black fine already we just want to recognize that we want to celebrate it and we want to do amazing program that
How Sage Revitalizes Agriculture Near Cities
"Name is sabella. Krause and i am the the president and founder of an organization called sage sustainable agriculture education and really there's another e. on the end enterprise because what what how we describe ourselves as an entrepreneurial nonprofit we work both on our own projects that we developed and we work in <hes> as saba to other farms but a basic mission is to revitalize agricultural places new cities and foster vital dole food systems that connect urban and rural communities and we work in a number of scales we work at the regional scale fru frameworks that we develop and and are invited to partner on and then we also work on the ground on specific projects exit the level of developing agricultural parks helping to develop wholesale food centers and that kind of thing and we work sort of inbetween sub-regional scales gales and basic approach developed what we say big vision ideas and implement them on the ground to collaboration with lots of different kinds of stakeholders yeah and you and i we were we were this. I met you when we were both wallace. <hes> sandra fellows and and <hes> last year and one of the things that just was so impressive to me about you and your work is your ability to look at this very large scale i think i i think there aren't a lot of people i run into. Who have that ability. I think there are a lot of people thinking about food systems on a bigger scale sale. I find what happens is that sometimes that focus can be on two wins of the food supply chain it can be on issues around agricultural of farmland protection <hes> access for new farmers and beginning farmers all the way to the other side where there are issues of food security thirty and food access both hugely important issues but what sometimes gets much less attention paid to it is the business of food food which is the whole supply chain which i know you worked very closely on <hes> <hes> in between <hes> the production part and then the end-consumer part and <hes> i think you know i think the basic idea is food certainly even in the bay area the foodie conscious area food gets really taken for granted the whole food agricultural system. I should say get sort of taken for granted so one way to try to draw greater attention to it is to say well. Some of our issues and approaches could solve other problems or help help implement other objectives <hes> now just give you a couple of examples in the city of san jose where we work closely they <hes> you know have major goals have diverse economic development and authenticity and that sort of thing <hes> but you you know there is a sense sometimes that in the rush for everyone to make such a focus on technology they've kind of gotten about some of the routes as being one of the major age of fruit production regions in the country and so that feels part of the past but in fact do reports we do such as the san jose food works we point out that their food system or food sectors actually make huge contributions visions economically to a lot of different goals to the diverse economic development goals cost of authencity mean santa's as the city which is the sticks most diverse i in the country <hes> but again that's sort of hidden in place plain sight so we try to elevate <hes> what both those assets are what they what the needs are so the city in this instance that the city scale looks at more closely what kind of investments a needed in across the food sectors to help realise other broader city goals and doing the same thing regionally as we're looking at <hes> regional resilience <hes> in the face of both natural disaster other a longer time impacts as we're looking at a long term land on usa transportation plan. We're saying not just where food and agriculture should be. She should fit in but how they too can be part of the solution the other things. The region is grappling with right so if i if i. I don't know if i'm correct in saying this but it it it seems to me like you you when when you say elevate you do you look at data and help people understand the landscape as it exists right now using the data and then you're making helping people will make the connections back to as you said economic development activities writes that it is injustice data about local food systems. It has connections to economic activity in the community absolutely <hes> i mean you know you one. <hes> one little example is is talking. We simply to a produce wholesaler <hes> in again in the city of san jose essay and <hes> they were saying you know the city doesn't really care about us. We just service hundreds of food trucks and of course in san jose like in many cities. The whole idea of the food truck culture is hugely important in defining public spaces and who people are and kind of diversity of culinary choices but again those food trucks depend on having a commissary places to get where they can get do. They're cleaning and places. This is where they can get their food supplies. So in the you need to help sometimes draw the attention of cities to the fact that the food truck doc doesn't materialize in the plaza at eleven thirty a m but it also is part of a set of infrastructure <hes> need need that that attention is needed for i mean and especially i would think in in places like san jose where <hes> real estate. I'm assuming is super. Expensive and lease rates would be expensive and so it's gonna take a bit of effort on the part of the city to make sure that add some of these infrastructure you know like like a distribution harbor something can can happen right to support things like food trucks it is it is really a challenge because there is definitely a kind of a a practice i would say the highest and best use scher <hes> across across the board and and obviously food as far less elastic are for less much more in the last crisis and a a lot of other tech kind of manufacturing and that sort of thing <hes> yeah so. It's a bit tough because <hes> you know where is the intervention. Come i mean the developers are need incentives or they need programs to try to to even begin to entertain. I mean this sort of idea and i'll give you another example. <hes> the city recently sort of put up for an exploratory exploratory are f._p._u. Request for qualifications advocation is really a site but one of the one of the requirements of the program for this one hundred and sixty acre site in an industrial part of san jose was a that housing was not to be part of the development and be that the jobs needed to be geared to people who didn't necessarily have college applic- <hes> <hes> college degrees and so that right away by putting out a program like that that against narrowed the scope and in fact some of the proposals is that were developed for that absolutely included a wide range of agricultural production the focus on indo farming and that sort of thing and agricultural processing agricultural <hes>. I mean food processing food distribution and also room due to look about this in a new way room room for agricultural r._n._d. Food are he. <hes> you know i was at a little at a meeting earlier this week. It kind of a food hack affonso valet always there are i mean dozens and dozens of firms popping up every i don't know quarter i should say looking at some new innovation in supply chain or new food production new vegan or new plant based proteins and new robotics and but you know a different kind of <hes> i and different platforms and so <hes> you know that that is a whole cluster of businesses so <hes> the attention needs to be paid to you know the idea that you could couple that future looking <hes> food development around. Maybe what's more traditional food distribution. I think is really exciting notion. It is and i think it's ah i love the food hack thon. I love that idea like food hack thing <hes> just because i think i in fact i was on a a phone. Call this morning with somebody who called in. I do these virtual office. Hours may called in who is in iowa. Who's who's doing a really interesting technology that applies to indoor agriculture and we were talking about the fact that there's like no where <hes> logically for that kind of tech company to go right now because tech it's not a software app like they still have to their software involved but they still have to grow plants right and plants grow as fast as they grow grow and and they need infrastructure for that and so that that just the way from a financial perspective in every other perspective how that tech company is gonna and grow is different and we don't have a natural place. Where is there an accelerator where somebody would actually understand this and the answer is no so what an opportunity to have that kind of a physical place. That could could be a home for this kind of innovation. Absolutely there are a few accelerators propping up. I'm one that comes to mind is food systems six. You may of <hes> but they they have. I think they are now. Maybe third cohort and <hes> some of the businesses that they have helped to incubate a really. I'm doing well so nice. <hes> i think <hes> you're you're right on it. There's definitely a need for these kinds of accelerator right right. Well and you know in attack. The the there's developed this infrastructure for helping groom growing businesses right so accelerators and and and pitch events and all that kind of stuff and just don't haven't really actively applied that to agan food yet ag tech and food so so is this this. This is a pretty big acreage in california is that is this city involved in the purchase of that or who owns out right now about the one that the one that i mentioned in san jose city owned land. It is okay to figure out what the program should it'd be four before. They put out a full fledged r. p. p. right. I got it and you know it adjoins burrowing wing al habitat so there's no sir <hes> it's probably about any feet above sea level twenty by thirty thirty feet above sea level nominations. <hes> nothing seems simple out here and oh my goodness i mean the congestion here is really <hes> gotten getting more intense by the month <hes> they've been as part of plan bay area there have been some future scenario planning and <hes> you know one some projections have the population slated to grow by almost one hundred percent to close to thirteen eighteen fourteen million in the next whatever it is twenty five years so my partner magin how does that work has infrastructure work and of course along with those comp kind of projections are ideas to invest billions more in transportation billions more in housing and <hes> we keep putting our hand up and saying oh but wait a second you know let's really think about food and agriculture as part of this. We kind of look at quarter are globally globally as a public responsibility to look deliver those things and food. They're still kind of sense if the market takes care of that that's right and we've come up with a couple of ideas to going back to the thing i said earlier about <hes> trying to present a solution that solves problem in in another arena <hes> so there's a lot of attention being paid played both in the bayer and really across california to the need for more affordable. Oh housing because you have these companies that are booming but it's displacing a lot of people who work at low and even medium wage jobs in any event <hes> <hes> so there we are looking at how can we build more affordable housing <hes> and often that housing is located. You know transit oriented kid in dense urban areas. It's oftens what's called mixed use housing village style housing and i say well could we also think about including adding healthy food outlets in those kind of places. Could there be insent. Could there be <hes> we wanted to look at policies which could or the aligned in but i should say between affordable housing policies and investments and healthy food access policies and investments and so you know could we bring those things together so rather than looking at separate problems with separate solutions so that's one of the things we're excited to be <hes> looking into with trying to find funding in fact right now to <hes> begin to take a look at some possibilities there
