"I'm tremendous mark on the thank you for this book. I have to tell you two quick stories. One, uh, when I was in Barnes and noble this morning, and I went down to get it. That was my mission, And I asked the guy behind the counter where it was, and he'd be grudgingly pointed across the room. You know, it's right there, not really giving me much much service, and as I walked over, this was the best part. The guy, another worker at Barnes and Noble how to stack of him and he had to be. He was putting them on the shelf as the line I waited on in four or five people pull them off the shelf. The book I have in front of He was not on the shelf 30 seconds. And just I think it drives them crazy at Barnes and Noble. I'm in the belly of the beast. You know where I am. Santa Rosa County or Healdsburg, North San Francisco. Um And it was literally literally flying off the shelf. I mean, people were there to buy that book. So, uh, I was only up to about page 166, where you talk about Thomas Soul in the quest for cosmic justice, and I had to jump ahead when we When you talked about Chapter seven, I read a lot of political science books. It's what my education is in particularly interested in progressivism and the destructive nature. It has toward our founding principles, and I can't recommend this enough for people. That, um, are interested in this thing interested in saving our country because I have never, ever read a, uh, a chapter like we just went over. You just went over and the way you lay the groundwork for the war we're in And I'm I had never thought of these things that you mentioned the back of this book or Chapter seven.

"Today. I'm going to talk about the joy of digital tele converters honest. I'm serious. This is not a joke. I'm really going to talk about how cool these things are now. I'm going to start with a story from fathers day which just happened I'm recording this on monday. So this was yesterday and my two boys live down in the santa clara area. And i'm in santa rosa. So san francisco is sort of like halfway in between so they set up the sing where we would meet Down in san francisco Around the presidio area which is just this lovely beautiful area part of san francisco and so we'd meet down there and they arranged for some takeout and we're going to eat out on this great green expanse at the presidio. Were just beautiful. People go there and they just hang out and picnic and families come and then after we had our picnic and so forth They had a walk planned and we kind of walk along crissy field in some nice views of the golden gate bridge and the city itself. So i knew that You know where we're gonna be someone to make sure. I had a camera with me. But i also knew that i wanted to travel light. This wasn't a day for me to you. Know have a bunch of photos care. And be. Like one of those dads. This was a day for me to enjoy and spend time with my boy. So i wanted to travel light well. I'm sure that's a huge shock to you right. Of course. I wanted to travel i. I almost always wanted to travel light. Regardless so i packed in my pocket. I had the iphone twelve pro. Max and i thought that would be particularly useful for the ultrawide if i needed it in a does have that. You know that to axe telephoto there. But i was more in the mood to shoot with fuji film. The x one hundred v is this that kind of day. I don't know i just. It just felt good to hold it in the hand and everything so my iphone stayed in my pocket all day. I never. I never used it once but i did pull out the x one hundred eighty. So we're taking our walk. And i i see some shots when we when we get near the water Played around with some shots with the golden gate bridge in the background in some really cool things in the foreground. That was fun in the thirty five millimeter. Equivalent lands of the excellent hundred v Was fantastic for that. It really was. It was great so that was all going really well. But then we kind of reversed direction. We went back the other way and the view that right away caught. My eye was the san francisco skyline with a kind of a semi low hanging clouds bank. So he had a little bit of blue right behind the buildings. Some fog above it a love that kind of sandwich. Look it's it's really gorgeous and in the foreground right in front of the city was the dome from the palace of fine arts. Going man has really nice. And then i had some good stuff to work within the foreground in front of that even so i'm going. That is a shot. i wanna do. I know a little bit of a postcard. Shaba does kind of an unusual angle and the lighting was really good. And i just wanted. The shooter is wanted to shoot him.

California Firefighters Battle Nearly 2 Dozen Major Wildfires

"Wildfires have now burned more than four million acres this year, and Sarah Husseini OFC reports that's more than double the previous record for an entire year. More than 16,000. Firefighters are still battling nearly two dozen major blazes throughout the state with a couple months of fall fire season still ahead. In Northern California is wine country More than 52,000 people have been evacuated as a result of the glass fire. Among them are the Henson's who have set up a borrowed RV for themselves and their three dogs outside an evacuation center in Santa Rosa. We've been evacuated three out of four years, Jessica Hansen says. This time they had no warning. She says she realised the worst was coming. When she walked out of her house on the seven acres atop the mountain. They call home and saw fire climbing from both sides as soon as we got to the top of our driveway We knew we were going to her house. But abandoning the land her family has lived on for generations is unthinkable. Henson says she's already focused on rebuilding despite not having any homeowner's insurance. Husband, Alton Henson says they'll have to rely on the federal Emergency Management Agency and groups like the Red Cross. All right now we're registered with FEMA and all then and apparently they're supposed to give us Temporary housing or they'll put trailers on our property until we re building. We're just waiting for that, but they can't do nothing in tow were considered disaster. Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom asked the Trump administration to declare the latest blazes, including the glass fire, a major disaster. Meanwhile, the weather is starting to cooperate with weary fire crews in the form of calmer winds, cooler temperatures and clear skies over the weekend, which allowed aircraft to fly over the steep and rugged terrain and make some big gains. Cal Fire spokesman Erikmenendez his office in ST Halina is located not far from where the blaze began. I can tell you that, looking out my window for the past week. I haven't seen the beautiful mountains that were known for, so it's very refreshing to see the mountains again. At a community briefing Sunday, Cal Fire incident chief Sean Norman was cautiously optimistic. We're feeling good about her lines were not done with this fire, yet it's been a stubborn fire. We don't consider the fire contained or controlled. It'll be weeks before we get to that benchmark. But that does not mean that we feel an imminent threat to any specific community Officials say they're hand picking local firefighters or those with previous experience in problem areas to help keep it that way.

They're my mom and dad are waiting for word right now, but Their emotional that the home that they have lived in that I grew up in. They've lived in it for 37 years that it's under threat right now and then, really, nobody knows what's going to go on that. About 68,000. People in and around Santa Rosa are evacuated and you know it. Here we go again that in 2017 Santa Rosa was the heart of the tub's fire. And then last year, Santa Rosa got hit by Flames on whatever the fire was called last year that we covered in the Windsor area in the northern area of Santa Rosa. And now this, A lot of people are evacuated the flames making a four mile run last night. In the neighborhood. They know that homes are gone. Firefighters say that they did have lost his last night. But here is the fire chief in Santa Rosa, saying they haven't been able to assess it yet. They don't know just how bad it is. I don't know how many structures were lost. Throughout the firefight. Last night. About there was there was significant loss. It was a windy last night, pushing those flames. ELISA dry very hot through the end of this week, and not only Northern California about 400 miles south right now, in Southern California, north of L. A. About 15. Minutes ago, a fire started already. It's run about 200 acres. Looks like it's running pretty fast toward homes right now, Santa Ana winds are blowing, so it's happening in northern and Southern California, and that's such gorgeous country, Alex, but some of those roads air in that wine, country air, really wind ear and it must be tough to get out of there. People trapped Yeah, well, they have been earlier today when it was a little bit windier. There were a lot of rescue is going on. You've got a lot of fire engines having to get up really wind e roads near Calistoga and seeing Halina Up in the mountains before it ran down to Santa Rosa. But there were a lot of calls going out of rescues needed of people needing to be pulled out now that they waited too long, But the flames moved too quickly. And then the only way out was down A wind e road and They were bought blocked by flames. We don't know of anybody at this point who has been injured or killed usually takes a little while, though, if you think about paradise or even the more recent fires in Washington, Oregon that several days later we find out somebody is missing. Fingers crossed that, as of right now that everybody was able to work fast enough in Santa Rosa in Napa County as well. There's a big retirement community Oakmont in Santa Rosa, at least one home burned there. The hope is that they were able to get that emptied out quick enough at this point looks like they were, but but we really don't know yet. I know in a way, it's minor. But what has this done to wine country? You've had Cove it that's heard it And then you had the fire. Another The fires before and now the smoke damage. Yeah, I mean, it's a minor at all for the industry. There were talking billions of dollars in Sonoma and Napa County and tourism and the wine itself. And that is the life blood of Sonoma and Napa counties, and they still have not gotten over the 2017 wildfires and the impact those fires had on the economy and on the infrastructure. Then the fires last year that again they were burning Shiloh Road, an area of Santa Rosa that has a lot of really well known wineries. Now we're talking about Napa and the Silverado Trail, a really well known area that it not only impacts the wine and the grapes that are being grown But it just the economic impact of wine reason or burning to the ground. Wine reason cannot be open. They've already been dealing with Cove it and the closures from that it's been really, really tough. ABC is Alex Stone and our best to your family. Alex. Thank you.

Data Visualization for How You Shoot

"We record except data with every picture we take. But how do we use it? If we examine our camera settings over a period of time with a specific model. We can learn a lot about how we capture. This information can help us change the look of our pictures plus assist us with buying decisions for new gear. And the best part is this exercise is both easy and cheap learn how on today's TVs photography podcast? So this is super interesting. I knew the title. Isn't that sex whenever you have data in the title unless you're a star Trek Fan is not that interesting. Okay, but this is truly interesting, and here's the project that I've been working on that. I WANNA share with you today, so I've been shooting with Fuji Film X One Hundred V, since March, in the reason for that is not the only camera shot with, but when I've gone. Gone outside. Is the camera even shooting with? Because I've been doing street photography whenever I wander outside now inside shooting with the Nikon the Olympics, you know all that kind of stuff that you have been hearing and seeing, but when I step out the door in get into an urban environment pretty much since March it's been the Fujifilm x one hundred, and I'm getting to know this camera. This is my first. X One hundred I like a lot, but I'm still learning about it and me together. So the way that I do street photography. At least the way I've done it since March Is. When I get out there, I really want to be thinking about the composition about how I hold the camera about what's in the viewfinder. You know all that kind of stuff and I'm not ask concerned with the actual settings, as I am with other types of targets for example with portrait photography. I'm really thinking about aperture lot I'm really thinking about color a lot with product photography. I'm thinking about depth of field and I'm thinking about exposure. You know so different types of photography have me focus on different things in terms of what are the priorities? So when I go out the door with the FUJIFILM x one hundred I'm really thinking composition I mean. That is my prime thing, and so as a resolve. What I've been doing is setting the camera basically on program mode, so it's on auto exposure in aperture and I've even gone so far as to using auto ISO with. Now in the beginning, I didn't really know how that would work out. And I soon found that this camera is really smart and it a great job in the way that I've been making any sort of adjustments and I'm giving away a little something here from the data. Because I didn't really realize this until I started studying the data, the way that I'm adjusting. The exposure is with exposure compensation. And I know that for a fact now because I have data to back it up so basically what I have been doing is putting it in program mode figuring out what film simulation I want that fits the mood of what I'm capturing, and then I'm just letting it fly just lay, and I have to tell you I have been. Really pleased with the results. This has been a lot of fun. Have Done Street photography in Los Angeles for our March Street photography workshop. I went to San Francisco. As you know a right before they started to open up again and did some black and white street photography there. I've done some photography in Santa Rosa. Here I go out on my bike and that way I can. Get through the police barriers, and all that kind of stuff more easily than I could with a car so I mean I've had some really interesting spots each time that I go out to shoot. I'm thinking about okay. What film simulation do I want and you know one of my after here, but the primary thing is that I need to be able to react quickly and I don't want to miss any shots. I really don't to miss any shots and to be honest with you. I have missed a very few so rolling that all up. That's a big setup for this data visualization thing because when I heard about this APP photo statistic. All one word. Ph Ot O. S. T. A. T.. I STI FOOT OF STATISTIC UP IS A two dollar ninety nine cents APP that you can get in the Mac, APP store It runs on the MAC platform. When I heard about this I go you know what I would love to analyze my work with the X. One hundred V since I've been shooting street photography with it in March and really Kinda. See what's going on in this APP is perfect. What this APP allows me to do is I can point. At a folder full of just I can point it at a capture. One Catalog I can pointed at a photos library. and. I can say you know analyze it. It will analyze the data and shots, and then it gives me all these different ways to look at that information

I mean artistically die. Just say you know what That was fun now. It's over. This is the new world and a well as you may have figured out by now. That is not the path that I'm taking nor the one that I'm recommending okay. Here's what I think. We should look for the opportunities within the situation. Tried to capitalize on them and then move forward to. Here's the cool thing. Whatever we do now while we're constrained physically we're not constrained artistically. I'll get to that in a minute. We're not constraints so much artistically as we are physically physical of all the limitations I think is easiest to overcome. Unless you're like locked in a box which were not. It's the easiest overcome I I would take it any day over mental imitation emotional limitation spiritual limitation. I'll take you know being sort of trapped in my studio or trapped in my house over those other constraints so I have Internet. I have my tools at the moment. I have food on the table as a moment. The mortgage is paid. I don't know about next month but we'll deal with next month when it gets here. So what I'm thinking is all right. Let's take a look at five ideas that we could play with during this time of physical limitation in. See what we can come up with. Because here's what happens if we come up with something now then if the world starts to come back to some other kind of normal that involves US actually being able to hang out with each other or go somewhere on an airplane or do a number of things like that then we already know how to do that and then we have whatever we've accomplished during this time and then we'll have both and then what if we can intermingle both into something completely new all right. You see where I'm going here. Let's take a look at some of these things that we can do during this time of internment right number one more self assignments because just because we don't have the physical freedom that we once enjoy. That doesn't mean were confined creatively. We can explore how to stir those embers. Bhai creating self assignments and seeing them through and seeing them through very important. Because if we're successful we'll not only enjoy the fruits of our efforts. Whatever that assignment was. We will have a level of self satisfaction for the accomplishment. And I think this is really important. I think setting goals. That can be accomplished right now. Are Super Important. Because I'll tell you there are days that I get up and they sort of you know. Look at my life and just talking about you know my creative life my working life right now my financial life all those are mixed together. There are days I get up and I look at that and I'm bummed. I am bombed. I just go. How man this is so hard. This is truly difficult and then I'll just go ahead and get to it. Start trying to do one thing and then trying to do the next trying to do something new. You know all that kind of stuff and then I will have a little success. Someone will sign up for a course. Someone will buy a very expensive camera. Someone will do something that sort of puts a little energy into the day and then I get a little momentum and then suddenly I start having more ideas and then I get my energy going. Self assignments can help us in that same way that we set something up that we can accomplish that is worthy of being accomplished. Not only do we have the thing but we get the feeling that goes with it and right now. I think that feeling that feeling good that feeling like I can move forward that I can do something under these conditions. I think that feeling is super important. Because that's what moves us to the next spot. Okay so self assignments. I think are a great way to do that. And they can be anything you can work on for instance assignment for a lot of folks right now. they're just wrapping up digitizing memories.

Shortly after Kim hitched a ride with two men expecting them to drive her to a night class in Santa Rosa. Instead Kim was raped and strangled to death. A couple of hours later my guest host to realize going to take over from here to discuss the details of Kim's murder and the investigation that followed thanks Vanessa on March Fifth Nineteen seventy-two less than twelve hours. After Kim ended her shift at the health food store. Two teenage boys made a horrifying discovery. They found Kim's body in a ditch. Twenty feet from enterprise road. She wasn't wearing a stitch of clothing. Not her long coat her backpack her straw bag. The only item her attacker had left. Her was one solitary gold earring on examining her body. The police surmised that Kim had been raped and then tortured by slow as fixation until she died at first police thought they had a solid lead eye. Witnesses had seen Kim entering a car with two men and the police were able to track down. The men in Question Bay subjected them to an intense interrogation however. Both men attested that they had dropped him off a couple miles down the road in San Rafael airtight alibis. And the fact that one of the men passed a polygraph test helped to further absolve them of the crime. Investigators back at Square Zero. Despite dedicating ten detectives to the case weeks passed without a lead and then more naked bodies of young female hitchhikers began turning up in ditches. Kim May have been the first victim of the Santa Rosa hitchhiker murderer as the media dubbed the serial killer. But she wasn't the last. The killer was active until nineteen seventy four for two long years. After Kim's murder they targeted young female victims between the ages of twelve and twenty four light. Kim these unsuspecting women were usually strangled raped and then unceremoniously dumped by the side of the road. The Santa Rosa hitchhiker murderer was rumored to be responsible for anywhere from six to twenty deaths. Police eventually found a few key suspects for the killings. The I was Frederick. Manelli Frederick was one of Kim Wendy Allens professors at Santa Rosa Junior College in Nineteen. Seventy six after Frederick died in a car accident. His wife alerted the police to some disturbing materials. She had discovered among her late husband's belongings namely her husband's numerous. Sado masochistic drawings featuring Kim Wendy Allen. These disturbing pictures were accompanied by letters. In which Frederick wrote about his obsession with sexual slavery and large-breasted women however the police later dismissed Frederick Manelli as the suspect surmising. That has fixation on. His former student began after her headline-grabbing death in the years since the hitchhiker murders police flooded several other high profile killers as the potential culprit atop this list was the Zodiac killer. He want signed off one of his infamous letters to the police with the word enterprise. And since Kim Wendy Allen's body was found on enterprise road the police wondered if the Zodiac sign off was a taunting call back however it wasn't the Zodiacs Mo to rape victims. It didn't quite fit Ted. Bundy was another high-profile serial killer who investigators tried to link to the murders however in Nineteen ninety-two the US Department of Justice ruled out Bundy to they discovered his gas receipts placed him elsewhere at the time of the crimes ultimately the police were never able to gather enough evidence to catch the killer. The Santa Rosa hitchhiker murders remain unsolved to this day in the years. Since Kim Wendy Allen's mother has made peace with this fact and decided to focus on the living according to an article in the Press Democrat. Kim's mother turned her attention towards educating hitchhikers stating it used to be you. Tell a child to not ride with strangers and made mind but these days. You can't tell a child anymore. We must reach them before anymore. Taken from US. She couldn't get back her girl but she would do her best to help others. I'm Vanessa Richardson. Thanks.

Right down here in the arts district, and Santa Rosa, California. How long you been here stores been here for a little over nine years. And yeah, great little neighborhood. You know, we got galleries around here art studios and a couple of funky places to eat and whatnot. So what kind of wander in the doors here? Oh, people wander in. We get actually because of the food. And the just the fact that was labeled the stress district.

"Seven. Message and data rates may apply. It was exactly a week ago today that residents found themselves fleeing paradise in California. Please. A lot of them have not been back since. But they know now that most of their homes are ash, thousands of structures burned. Authorities are still trying to identify all those who did not make it out. Some of these residents are, of course, living out of tents others are crashing with relatives. Some local leaders are already pledging to rebuild. What does that actually look like is it possible to see a year into your future in a weird way Californians can because of the rash of deadly wildfires over the last few years. We are able to see exactly what we building these communities takes residents are able to learn from each other and before the complete destruction of paradise. Just a few hours away. They were Santa Rosa, California. Get out now. The Santa Rosa police department time. Time. It was just over a year ago that those residents wondered whether their homes had made it and a lot of them got the exact same answer. So I wanna go to ABC's Alec stone. He's in California and Alex in your from Santa Rosa. Right. So you were covering the fire. You were there last year around this time, you were just there recently. What's it like now? Yeah, it's my hometown. At this is where I grew up. I spent eighteen years in Santa Rosa, and then to see at burn it was it was heartbreaking that everybody that that you knew lost a home or lost a loved one that it was very personal to everybody. And now you go back and the resilience is there you can see a community coming back together that a year ago. Nobody knew how they were going to move forward that much of the town was gone. There were so many lives gone would they rebuild in those areas? That were the hardest hidden and they are. It is now sounds of hammers and of saws and the rebuilding very alive right now at water hot water, cold water. It's great. You hear the drilling Hogger trucks going by walking driving by which works at thanksgiving time because you really do see people giving thanks for all of these buildings that are coming out. I was gonna say they all coming up at the same time or is at one house at a tie. What does it look like they're big areas where there are a lot of homes coming up in a part of that is because a lot of the evacuees in those who lost their homes. They have made deals with home builders that okay, if you build one home come in here and make us a deal, and you can build twenty homes. And so there are certain home builders who are willing to do that. It's not just everybody going out and finding in some areas, it is finding their own home builder. But there are companies that have come in and said, you know, what instead of and cinema counties expensive instead of this house being eight hundred thousand will do it for. Five hundred thousand if we can do twenty homes. They're making deal. We're here doing this work, which takes a huge chunk out of our daily lives to help the person that lives next door to us the person that lives four blocks with personal lives a mile away get back in their homes. Everybody's banding together especially in Coffey park, and they're working together to get the community rebuilt. Well, so you got these whole neighborhoods destroyed and people that made it out of paradise California heard their entire town has gone and these pictures from this week look so similar to what you were covering. Have. You talked to the people in Santa Rosa like what goes through their heads when they see this. Now, it's spooky for them. And I it scares them and even down to with the paradise fire. Santa Rosa has been covered in smoke. Even though Santa Rosa's, hundreds of miles away the smoke from paradise has made it seem like there is a fire in Santa Rosa. You can't see very far outside of your home. You can't see very far outside your car's driving long, and that has been haunting the folks of Santa Rosa.

"These were huge fires. They were fairly close to the bay area. That would be smoke that would be pouring in, you know, into the region of the state brought to bear a huge amount of resources to fight a large number of wildfires. The city of Santa Rosa, which is one of the bay area's largest cities lost dozens and dozens of homes. And PG was blamed for about sixteen of those wildfires. They also faced a number of lawsuits. The biggest fire though in in that set of wildfires the tubs fire in in the north bay in right? North of San Francisco Cal fire has yet to release its findings on that. And we are sort of waiting and hoping that we'll learn more about what was the biggest blaze in our area last October, Ted what's really happening here. I mean is it that PG any is not taking care of the power grid as they should. Or is this just I guess you could normal wear and tear of the grid. And and their inability to keep up with it. What what's going on? Well, the weather is a major factor in PG ni is fully aware of that. In fact, in the days before the fire the days before the the days before the the big fire in county, the campfire PG had worn customers in a number of counties, including Butte county, the weather coming up is going to be. Bad. The wind is going to be very high. And it's possible. We may have to turn the power down in advance. They did something like this in late October in a number of areas in the actually got a bunch of criticism for it. And they warn people in advance. We may turn the electric city. They decided not to do that. But to answer your question, you know, one of the major factors is not just making sure that they're acquit -ment is safe, but it's also putting in preventative measures, and in some cases, they get criticized if if they do, and if they don't what's really going on right here is we have a major discussion about California's largest utility PG ni is a part of the major fabric of the bay area. And we all rely on them here. So many of us do but at the same time they have been held responsible not just for a series of wildfires. Like you pointed out last year. And there is of investigators are not just on the wildfires this year, but in several different incidents over the last few years PG any has been blamed for a number of. Disasters. You may remember into twenty ten in San Bruno a natural gas transmission line blew up basically destroying a neighborhood last year in may there was a refinery shutdown. It was a power outage. The state regulators ended up blaming genie. So there's a big discussion about what this means for the future of the utility, and whether or not it may file for bankruptcy. Whether or not it's appropriate that the state rely on a four profit company for something as important as electrobi- and safety. I mean, given the results I can't imagine that the the organization doesn't have more oversight. There isn't is there a body or an organization or a person that is supposed to have oversight on this..
