"I feel like to at scale. See what's there so much. This is why you're my favorite well. And also i think you know we interviewed amy poehler on armchair and her and three other men created upright citizens brigade which is a formative comedy experience for so many comedians. And you were talking about this idea that you almost feel like to succeed. You have to be a guy's girl you know like you have to be someone who gets along with the guys and who can hang with the guys quote and like. I just love this idea that you guys had a girls night. Essentially giants say this. The female relationships are important and to not disregard those so that you can like climb a ladder or you can like get along with the men. In and of course the reason we feel this is because men dominate so many of these professions. But i loved it just like no also focus on the the girls that i never would have done it. I mean the reason. I'm so careful gear on this one to give credit where credit's do is that liz had been. She'd worked at the pentagon for years. She's been in some of the most male dominant and she just knew that this was placed that she could create just with this small. Act right a place of refuge and a place to inculcate a solidarity. That wasn't there before. And what. I became un ambassador. I had talked to madeleine albright. Who was america's first female secretary of state shattered some serious glass of her own big time before that she was. Un ambassador back in nineteen ninety-three twenty years. Before i was in the job. And she had had this insight as well that i would not have had but for liz and but for madeline which is when she got to the un there were one hundred. Eighty three countries represented there and only seven of the ambassadors. Out of one hundred eighty. Three were women so she created something. She called the g seven. Which of course. The group of seven among countries but girl seven and she gathered those seven ambassadors together. And i think they managed to notch some not trivial policy achievements in so far as they got female judges elected to the war crimes. Tribunals and those judges ended up being involved in passing down the first ever verdicts on rape as a weapon of war and a form of genocide so it ended up having this knock on effect but beyond that they just met and it allows you to identify kind of what you. And what's the what's the guy was society. What's the community. The broader dynamics and it was across region religion because just what these seven countries happened to be. That had put women forward. When i got there. Flash forward twenty years there. One hundred ninety. Three countries in the world by ten countries had joined the un. Since and when i arrived we had thirty seven female permanent representatives female ambassadors and so on mallon advice i convened the g. thirty seven would fluctuate it went up. I think it was the g. Forty one forty two. Do you know this book confidence code. No writing down tattooing it on my body women and girls and confidence and so forth so we brought these authors to talk to these female. Pr's about confidence and these are women who were often the first person in there not only in their family but in their village to go to college and here they were representing their country at the united nations just breathtaking stories of courage.
Fun Summer Tastes and the New TerraShield
"Samantha. Thank you so much for being here with us today. Thanks so much for having me so cooking with essential oils is something that maybe not. A lot of people are familiar with so if i am new to cooking with essential oils. What are some of the things i need to know. Cooking with essential oils might take on. It is mostly for flavor unless you're not heating up oils because like with everything. Each essential oil has a flash point which means they all have a temperature that they basically burn off at which can remove potential benefits but it does leave the flavor bind. That's really interesting. So if you're planning on putting into oils in raw foods you'll definitely get the benefits and the flavor but if you're deciding to cook with it you're just looking for the flavor to replace the dry herbs that you'd probably use cooking with essential oils is also an easy clean and honestly less expensive way to season a dish because you want to use them. Sparingly essential oils are concentrated versions of the plant. So you don't need much you can always add more but you can't take anything away. I start with a toothpick sized amount and slowly. increase it from our flavor. Can you let us know what some of your favorite recipes are. I think a lot of people might want to use essential oils in different recipes. But might not know where to start so i. What is your favorite recipe to use a citrus. Oil in absolutely really was interested. Any type of drink but also desserts. Interestingly enough i love wild orange orientate injuring in chocolate cakes brownies. It really brightens up those richer desserts and you can even add them into frostings. Or if you're going for more like a summary dish you can add a little bit into a salsa and my favorite drink to do with wild. Orange is making lemonade with some freshly squeezed lemons. Your favorite sweetener and then just a drop of wild orange in maybe a drop of tangerine and you have this bright unique fresh lemonade to hopefully cl- you off. During the hot summer

Finding Europe in America
"Says you have to actually go to europe to taste of the old world after all many american and canadian cities and towns were settled by european immigrants. Sometimes they tried to recreate a bit of what the new from the old country. Even if we can't go to europe we can discover benefit prayed here. In our hemisphere samantha. Brown hosts public television travel series places to love where she films from destinations. Both around the world in closer to home. She joins us today on travel. With rick steves to look at some of her favorite places to find a bit of europe. In america samantha. Thanks for joining us. Pleasure to be here rank. Boy know all i do is go to europe again and again and again but i really. There's a lot of europe hiding out here in the united states during covid lockdown times so we can't travel overseas like we'd like to but we can find little knockoffs here in the united states from all around the globe knockoffs because some of them are terrific kind of constructions and others are honest to goodness immigrant communities. That are still the way they were hundred and fifty years ago when they were there were settled just in my state washington. We've got leavenworth which is a famous little german. It's kind of a touristy. Gimmick but poulsbo is originally a norwegian town and its norwegian to this day and we have linden up by the canadian border which is a very dutch was settled by holland immigrants. What are your favorite slices of europe in america. Well one of my favorites is a city that i had gone to my entire life. My family Was brought up right outside of it and then after doing two years of europe came back to and it just hit me like a ton of bricks that this was a european city and that is philadelphia pennsylvania. It is by far the most for me. The most year of paean city in the united states and so then i started like do a deep dive like why is it so it was just a feeling i had like. Wow i just feel like. I'm in europe. And there were so many connections One of the main architects was an emigrant from leon france. He designed the ben. Franklin benjamin franklin parkway which is now. We're all the museums are lined. And he designed that off of the sean z z. and along this beautiful roadway parkway where they're abuse. There's the rodin museum. there's the philadelphia museum of art. Which has the largest collection of renoir in the world. Incredible and others rittenhouse square.

Chip Crisis in 'Danger Zone' as Wait Times Reach New Record
"Our lead story today is one of demand and supply in that order. The commodity in question is semiconductors. The demand as we'll explain is nearly universal the supply well it's lagging and more so every day bloomberg got its hands on some data from the susquehanna financial group that says if you order a chip today the aforementioned semiconductors you're going to have to wait seventeen weeks for it to be delivered. Four plus months that is to put it mildly no way to run a supply chain. And as marketplace's samantha field reports. It is doing damage to way more than cars or computers or smartphones. These days almost everything has a chip whether we think of it as high tech or not. If it has a plug or battery probably has chips in it glenn.

Doorbells and light bulbs you can turn on with your phone and even lower tech things like kids toys because all the toys gotta talk now and they got to react and they have little motors right. Now there's a shortage of all kinds of chips. Even the most basic ones says china vasan an analyst at bloomberg intelligence for. It doesn't matter if it's one hundred dollars or fifty cent part. There's just not enough capacity at factories around the world to meet the demand from all of the industries. That need chips because there's such a shortage. The semiconductor industry is having to pick and choose what to prioritize says. Mario morales at market research company. Idc it's for prioritizes. The large scale lear is like computing. Mobile phones is the largest market so though supply chains are always going to get priority and other companies especially smaller are going to have to wait longer for chips so shrine of austin at bloomberg says if you need something like a new appliance anytime soon even if you don't care about it being smart all of those products will be in.

"samantha it" Discussed on The New Yorker: Fiction
"Hi samantha. Hi deborah. Thanks for having me. How did yin li's work. I come into your life <hes>. That's a great question. I have to say. I think it was originally from the new yorker. It wasn't this story. This wasn't the first. Union story i encountered. Maybe it was extra. This one though sheltered woman has always stayed with me so deeply. There's no easy way to forget it. There's no easy way to feel like i'm done thinking about it. And i've been interested to see how often it returns to me again. And again. And i think that i initially was so attracted to it. Because it's such a complicated story about mothering and mothering. Stories while not rare <hes>. Ones that are complicated enough to satisfy me are rare that to find a story that questions mothering. Or even that digs in to the extent that this one does where you know we're bringing in themes of capitalism and the effects of capitalism on mothering. I mean. I don't know that i've seen that really anywhere else <hes>. Maybe in some amazing science fiction but never in a story that dwells in realism. The way this story does and the fact that yijun decided to kind of capture this luminol moment of one month. You know the first month and to take that tiny quiet microcosm and make it into this devastating huge chasm of a universe. I i find that unbelievable right. The story deals with a character who only takes care of babies in the first month of their lives. And who also takes care of mothers in the first month of <hes>. Of motherhood motherhood is something you have written about a fair amount in your own fiction. Yeah yeah. I am a mother of three and i think that when i became a mother i like most mothers was amazed at how little i knew beforehand. Despite having mother despite being daughter. I knew so very little about how to do this. And the way that it would change my identity the way that it would open me up in a tremendous way and so i. I went looking for literature that reflected that to some extent in. I don't know that i found too much of it. Even the word mother the first place we go is someplace. Really very basic and stereotypical i. You know it's like making dinner making cookies driving mini vans and there's none of that in a sheltered woman and i really appreciated that because i did feel like when i first became a mother having made life became obsessed with death which ultimately you know that makes a lot of sense and yet no one had prepared me for that and no one had told me that was going to happen so i kind of looked for the pieces that dealt with that question and tried to write these stories myself so now.

She had recorded in a palm size notebook which had twice fallen apart and been taped back together years ago. Auntie may had bought it at a garage sale in moline illinois. She had liked the picture of flowers on the cover purple and yellow unmelted snow surrounding the chased pedals. She had liked the price of the notebook to five cents when she handed a dime to the child but the cashbox on his lap. She asked if there was another notebook she could buy so that he would not have to give her any change. The boy looked perplexed and said no. It was greed that had made her ask but when the memory came back it often did when she took the notebook out of her suitcase for another interview. Auntie may would laugh at herself. Why on earth had she wanted to know books. When there's not enough to fill one. The mother sat still not touching the spoon until tear-drops fell into the steaming soup.

I reached out to Robyn Schwartz And I met her at the New York Times portfolio review a couple years ago and I remember seeing her on my list of photographers that are going to review and she was the first one and I remember thinking. That's not the Robin Schwartz. Some thinking about this. It's another robin shores. She wouldn't be here. Asking she wouldn't be here getting a review, but I hadn't with my son doing that portfolio review and I did not know anything about like the caliber photographers.

Links to weird animal, accounts or photos of our our animal companions and I know that I wasn't sure that Robin with actually going to pick up this for this assignment, because she she actually has cancer and I know that she's tired a hard time with it. And I mean like anyone who has cancer. And, so I wasn't sure if she would be up to doing it but she picked it up and She focused on what a lot of her work focuses on her animal companions and her daughter. and.

An cheerleader and so I started working there I ended up being there three years, and from the researcher curator curator position. I moved into a photo editor position. And then from there, I worked in a creative producer position. And it was. A period of time where I really learned a law, I was able to make a lot of rookie mistakes and you know may built a lot of relationships with different photographers. Had amazing mentors and it was also back in the day when no one really knew what Airbnb was truly start off when I got there. And no one hated them yet. Now I mean. I think it was like employee, number, two, hundred, fifty, five or something. But it grew really quick. So I learned a lot on the job. It was definitely. Yeah there was things. Move so quickly there.

It was kind of my first taste of photo editing and I loved it I. wanted to do more of it. and I actually while I was doing creative production I actually like when I look back at everything I've found that the time when I was solely doing thorough editing, I enjoyed the most there, and then after that I. after to sort of three years I ended up taking a job instagram where I was kind of doing a mix of sayings and. was doing a combination of I kind of have my hands dabbled in a bunch of different things. where I was doing a mix of research editing. On commissioning working on building installations trying to think what else, but yeah, that was probably. And then from there on the was there about two years. It was very much.

Well that's that's remarkable like so many people in the photography world A career depends upon the ability to be flexible to be creative. And and to work in in a whole different number of directions all at the same time and you wound up landing at one of the nation's best and I would argue most important magazines now that you are more or less in charge of the photography there.

"Their support why you came so far I need a minute to enjoy the speech and once you lose freedoms and Samantha it's not easy to get it back I'm only saying NPR news Taipei Taiwan the killing of a run in Major General Qassem so the money has stirred up the geo political and military dynamics of the region one of the major players of course is Russia I'm not bush's sky a is a senior fellow at the Washington institute and she's here to tell us how Russia a US adversary is viewing these developments welcome to the program thanks very much for having me you wrote a post after the U. S. killed so the money quoting a journalist who described the Kremlin's reaction to it as a quote mixture of satisfaction envy and admiration can you explain that why was there a billion envy so according to this journalist the N. B. comes from the fact that the act of killing silly money is interpreted as the fact that the United States still has primacy in world affairs and then the complexity comes from the fact that there's so many other issues to talk about here Russia and Iran have a very complicated partnership in the Middle East in on the one hand a weakened Iran could be an advantage for Russia but at the same time is around two week that also presents a problem because then Russia cannot rely on Iran to do a lot of the heavy lifting in Syria that has been doing up until this point so explain why a slightly weakened Iran would be a good thing for Russia because their allies aren't they they don't have a formal treaty but as far as their behavior goes absolutely Prussia always leaned closer on the run a solid block in the Middle East and the complexity here comes from the fact that ultimately Russia doesn't want anyone stronger than itself and in the Middle East Pacific reporting cultivated an image of somebody that can be a power broker in SO in Iran that's too strong could theoretically undermine that narrative but at the same time in around that's too we can also be a problem in the Iraqi parliament voted to work towards removing foreign troops from the country after that US strike the trump administration insists that US troops aren't yet planning to leave but what would it mean for Russian influence in a rock specifically if they did yeah that's a really important issue Russia has been working very hard to return to Iraq first while Russia opposed the US led intervention in ever since pressure has been working to return to Iraq first will through three energy deals both with Baghdad and with Iraqi Kurdistan up through arms sales also through soft power projection so Russia has been trying to fill that space increasingly so you would have been one more steps in what I would also predict as another possibility you could see Russian PMCs private military contractors coming to Iraq as well so maybe even having a presence in Iraq themselves a taking over that space militarily that that's right we've certainly seen that in Libya and under Putin Russia increasingly relies on this PMC model in its foreign policy let's talk about Syria of briefly Putin visited aside shortly after so the money's assassination Russia has a big presence in Syria where along with Iran it's been supporting the Syrian regime in the civil war there what you see happening in the wake of this assassination in terms of that relationship yeah so I think the Kremlin's first worry with the killing of selling money was because the United States coming after next up Kremlin thinking is colored by a very paranoid fear that the U. S. sponsors regime change throughout the world and that ultimately other themselves maybe next so I think Putin wanted to project strength wanted to project power at a time when he's worried and specifically sure this goes back to the issue of how stable is a side will Russia have to commit more resources than necessary if Iran is too weak those are the issues that may be worrying him and do you think the US is acting to sort of stop Russia from its own ambitions I mean Russia is trying to stop the U. S. is the U.
