"So if you need floppies, go to the floppy guy, floppy disk dot com. In Japan, people imagine that the government is using them to store data to, I guess, to load programs or whatever people used to do with floppies, but what's hilarious is that a lot of Japanese government agencies require people to submit documents on floppy disks. Yeah, crazy, right? I've been seeing the Japanese equivalent of facts here in the U.S.. We're still stuck. They invented the facts. We're stuck with that too. That will never die. But I will say, in 2019, the U.S. nuclear arsenal stopped using floppy disks. The army is the army can get off a technology. We all can. Let's kill floppies. Let's kill faxes. I mean, come on, people. What decade is this? Or really what millennium? Is floppy guy? AIGA asked him, what's the most in demand? He says, the most of the man is a standard 1.44 megabyte three and a half inch blank floppy disk. I would say the most valuable are currently the 7 20 kilobyte double density disks. Of course, there are specially 8 inch disks for which there is a very small demand in which we only have a small inventory apparently. Ten or 12 years ago, he says, I bought a couple of million disks, and we basically been living up that inventory ever since. Wow. Then Will Smith make a movie about this called the pursuit of happiness, essentially. Hey, he's living large. He's living the life. God bless him. I had a zip drive. My dad was a zip drive in his office. I thought that was a cool thing. It was like a hundred megabytes on a desk. I was like, yeah, now I upload gigabytes on files for every podcast. Maybe that's what Japan's moving to from the floppy is the zip disk. That would be a it would be an upgrade of a sort, but Dropbox is public now. I think we've all figured out how to do this without physical media. So it was the digital minister of Japan who said, they haven't stopped doing it. He said, we've got to stop doing it. Because this is crazy. There's still, according to Time Magazine, 1900 government procedures in Japan that require a floppy disk. The Japan's digital minister, hey, at least they have a job, I don't think we have a digital minister. Unless it's that guy with a super church down in LA, Taro kono said we will be reviewing these practices swiftly, why does one even buy a floppy disk these days? Well, we know now where one gets a floppy disk. Crazy. All right, I want to take a little break. Is it time? Yes, it is. We have much more to talk about with our fabulous panel. But I don't want to keep them too late because hey, it's Game of Thrones night. We got to have our priorities. So you haven't watched that yet, Alex? I have watched an episode and a half. But the video games that you mentioned. That's a better that's the show to watch. Not The Lord of the Rings. The house of the dragon. You have to pay attention in House of the dragon. And Lord of the Rings. Little hobbits. There's no thing. Okay, so you've watched all of The Lord of the Rings? No, I've watched four episodes. There's one I haven't seen yet. Okay. So the guy in the start, do you think that's Gandalf? So that's my hypothesis. So you haven't gotten to the most recent episode where we meet some. Oh, no, I haven't. That's when I had my COVID vaccine on Friday. So yesterday, I was on the spoiler alert. You know the saruman's gonna show up. Who's making the orcs? Well, I mean, someone who doesn't saruman Sauron. Oh, maybe saruman. Saruman was a white wizard. He was the original white wizard named Gandalf the gray who came back as Gandalf the white. Right. I think it's Gandalf because remember Gandalf has a soft spot in his heart for the hobbits. And that's right. That might be why, right? He also had a soft spot for the halflings leaf, which I believe means that he's the next Silicon Valley CEO by your earlier. He likes to smell smoke the tobacco as they say. A little too much lore. I show today brought to you by blueland. You want to do the right thing. I know you want to do the right thing. We do too. We're trying to eliminate single use plastics in our House. We don't use plastic bags anymore. We use paper bags, all that stuff. But there is an area of single use plastics. It's really appalling. Did you know that an estimated 5 billion with a B plastic hand soap and cleaning bottles are thrown away every year in COVID, we moved and move away from the bar soap to the hand soap, but you use it up, you throw it away 5 billion thrown away every year, and if that's not bad enough, most of what's being transported in those bottles is water, 90%. The active ingredients only 10%. So here's a better way, blue land, blue land. We now do all our squirters, all our surface cleaners, our window cleaners, laundry detergent, dish detergent, everything from blueland, blueland is on a mission to eliminate single use plastics by reinventing home essentials that are good for you and good for the planet. You buy what they call their lifetime bottles. They're beautiful forever bottles. For the hands up they're heavy glass so that you could squirt them. And for the surface cleaner and the window cleaner it's light plastic, but they last forever. When you use them up, instead of throwing it away, they send you a little tablet. It's like a little fizzy tablet. Then you throw in there, you add your own water so they're not transporting all that water uselessly. And you've got a whole new bottle of this. It's so great. They smell great. They work great. And blue lands innovative tablet refill solution takes one tenth the space of a traditional bottle. So the shipping and all of that, it's much simpler. Fill it with warm water refills start at just a couple of bucks, I'm on a subscription plan. So I get the refills when

"Not too many have been actually Alexis. A few things to unpack there, but we will start with the target about sadio Manet and what he said are not said shall we say about his future. I thought it was interesting that he said it's special in that quote, very, very interesting. Now, yesterday, Stevie, you were happy with how most of our handle the situation of the rumors about his future. What's your take on how money has? My T corner is that I'm happy with the way he spoke. Does that make sense to you? Because well, because, you know, all the questions are, is this going to affect them? Right now, before the big Cup final. That's what everybody's here. You know, he's not said yes. He's not said no. He said it's going to be a bit special. But his whole demeanor regardless of whether, as yes or no, is relaxed, relaxed. He's got a smile on his face. So he doesn't look stressed. Is he tying with them? Not at all. I think he's, I think he knows what he's doing. He's not telling us. He's probably been taught by a clot. Look, just, you know, it's all about the boys. It's all about the team. Let's just wait till we're finished. And then whatever you're going to do, then let everybody know, but let's just concentrate on again. And as I said, the most important thing is he's demeanor. You talk about relax and the smile on your face. Listen, somebody who's upset not happy, feels like being left though, Jules was saying, it doesn't act like that. Unless you're not playing that. Unless you're not going to be there any longer. It felt like the ominous that quote, I didn't know what to make of it. But what I'm seeing from my point of view, the key is that it doesn't look like it's going to make any difference to them tomorrow. And again, correct. All right, so that's the key. Okay, so if you don't want to make any difference, but what did you read into the quote that he gave? Well, I just think it was a wasted opportunity for him if indeed he was going to stay a Liverpool to say, hey, stop the rumors, stop the conversation. I'm staying a Liverpool. Hey, nothing to see here. Nothing to talk about, and then we're not having this conversation, which then tells me by extension, as a byproduct of that, that he's not going to be in Liverpool, that he is very much at peace with that decision and to your point. Very relaxed about it will not affect his performance, but he's essentially saying it's been great a Liverpool. We're going to close it in a great manner. We are going to win this thing. And then after that, see you guys later. If that's the case, then I don't think Liverpool fans would be all that concerned about. His quality of performance and how it affects Liverpool because he may or may not be distracted. I don't think he's distracted at all. But I do read into it between the lines in him saying, yeah, this has been great, but I'm not going to be here for much longer. So if it doesn't affect him, specifically, how does it affect the dressing room? It doesn't. Everybody's concentrated on the game. They don't get, you know, players have very selfish. It ended a day. You know, when someone, something like this comes up, all the players are not coming in every day going. Oh, what's he going to do? Do you think he's going to say? How much is he going to get? What do you think he's going to get? And you're certainly not going to go, hey, Sadie, what are you going to do? I won't tell anybody. Tell me. I won't tell anyone. Okay. Please know this goes on this harms. It happens every year somewhere, not always at the big clubs, but eventually at the big clubs, and this unit is Liverpool's Tom. So it doesn't affect the dressing room at all. Now, if indeed, there is validity to what the guys were saying in terms of, okay, that Mohamed Salah feels the love and saruman does not. And then Bayern Munich is willing to show him that love, then I think you can go down that path and understand that for him and make sense to move away. But in terms of the effect on the game, the impact on his performance, I don't see it at all. I'm still not convinced he's leaving. I don't pay the money. Well, Ancelotti was a lost about him as a Real Madrid player, and he told the journalist your brave asking that at this time with this game ahead. So I'm not going to get drawn into this, but he's a great player. So the film has a few names getting thrown out there. Well, exactly. Listen, the journalist of just doing what John was doing. The track started pop. The track gets something that he sees something so that they can just splash something on the front of the back page, whatever suits they can get at, that's all that was. Okay, well, we heard a couple of journalists there talking about the training session that they saw and it does bring us back up to Thiago and fabinho sticking with it, starting them, Stevie. Yeah, you've got to start them. The problem is. Particularly with a hamstring. You can train and do this and do the exercises and do it all. But there is a.

"My name's on there. All right, well, let's wrap this up. All right. So you enjoyed the alternative commentary to Fellowship of the Ring, so I assume we're going to eventually do all of them. That's what I hope. I hope I hope you learned at least one thing about this movie because there's a lot of facts being spit out during this. Oh man, we're just spitting out troops everywhere. Yeah, exactly. So hopefully you liked it. Hopefully you enjoyed it. And if nothing else, hopefully you just enjoyed the movie itself anyway. It gives you an excuse to go fire it up and watch it or read the book or listen to the audiobook. Whatever. Go buy obscure books that tell you obscure facts about history. Read the silmarillion. And there's a lot, there's like 12 books that his son, Christopher put together, but honestly, a lot of it's just his recollection of what his dad was writing and he just kind of what he did is basically so when he died Christopher Tolkien, JR Tolkien's son took all of his notes and just went through all the notes and found and figured out when he wrote, hey, this is when he first came up with the idea of saruman. Oh wait, here's a revision to sorry, man. Okay, here's when he actually named the balrog this. And here's where he changed it. And it's really not that interesting. But there's some tidbits that he does go through like the story of gondolin where Gandalf Gotti sword from. It kind of goes into history of that city. The silmarillion tells the backstory of the creation of middle earth and Sauron's master morgoth and so you have to kind of pick and choose. Yeah. But anyway, I'd recommend it, but I would probably wouldn't bother with it until you've read Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. First. Yes, and then tackle it maybe in bits. It took a long time for me to read the silmarillion. I had to go real slow. Hummus. Anyway. Is it like the Bible where you have to like yeah. I would recommend you have the Tolkien gateway or this Tolkien companion by JEA Tyler nearby. And as you're reading the silmarillion, if you come because it's got a lot of names and it's got a lot of places. You're going to want to look it up and figure out, what is this? Oh, okay. Yeah. That is. Yeah so. If nothing else, like I told you earlier, just read the account or listen to the acala bath in the back of lord of the back of the silmarillion that gives you the background on what the Amazon series is going to be about. It's only 80 pages. You can knock it out pretty quickly. And it's actually a pretty fun story. The other ones, it can be kind of a bit of a slog. Yeah. Yeah. A wealth of information. Yes. Like you're reading a textbook. Exactly. All right, well, hey, let's wrap this up. Thanks, Ruth. Thank you for anybody listening to this later. I'll put a link in the show notes to all the different stuff we discussed. Hopefully there's going to be a lot of it. But pay attention for the next one. We'll do the two towers eventually. All right. We'll see you later. Thanks everybody. Bye. Bye..
How Can Parents Protect Their Kids From the Deconstruction of Heteronormative Tendencies?
"Okay, it's deconstructionist in nature. It's about trying to question heteronormative tendencies and behaviors, parents are super confused about this James. And they're confused because I hear well it wasn't like this when I grew up. What should the posture of a parent be of an 8 year old, a ten year old, a 15 year old, a 20 year old caution them appropriately, tell them what to be alert and aware of and what's the code words they should be looking out for? And then we'll get what we can do about it. Don't get there yet, but like, because we'll close my gosh. It's so difficult because this is so seductive. I actually have a podcast series I've been doing that I'm calling groomer schools because that's what's happening in the schools. This is sexual and whatever else grooming. And the communists have a handshake agreement with the pedophiles. I'm not even going to exaggerate. Yeah, go ahead. It's very much if you're a Lord of the Rings fan like I am. It's like the deal that saruman I know it's geeky. Sarman made with worm tongue. You know, go undermine theoden so the Rohan won't fight back, and you can have your pick of the girl. It's the same deal, but it's your kids. So what you've got to be telling your kids is you've actually got to be talking to them that this is nonsense and that there are boys and there are girls and it's not only okay to be a boy or a girl but it's very important to do that and that there are people who are going to use this to hurt you down the

"Find it. We also have a Discord channel, which is called hero quest fans. That's a little harder to find. You may have to go on to Ye old in dot com, go to the forums and just look up here request fans Discord. You'll find that. And then on YouTube, it's actually X, SC, the number three, home a fair request fan. So if you look that up or follow the link from Twitch, you'll see all the old videos that I've streamed that early on there for two weeks before they delete them until I become an affiliate, but I got to get 50 followers for that and I've only got 6 or something right. Okay. Join up. Well, I'll put a link in the show notes kurgan so that everybody listen to this can go and check all those ideas and get in touch with you. And should I type it in the chat here or yeah, whatever you want to do it either way, but I really want to encourage people to go there. I know I listened to and watched your video on mentor. That was always a controversy on way back for the old timers. Was the guy in the card? Was that mentor or was that zargon? Who is it? I was disappointed by that. He'll always be Z argon to me. The evil Santa guy is zar gone. It was always intended to be mentor, and then more cars, argon, or grim dead, as he's known in the Japanese version. So you don't know what he looks like. See? This is to be anything. This is what you'll hear on C on the YouTube and Twitch channel. These little nuance things that when you talked about that zargon mentor thing, I was like, oh, I remember that when I was a kid, I was like, which one is he? And then the marvel special and just all sorts of things. Personally, I think Stephen baker, I mean, he's clearly indeed a D&D fan. He's also clearly a tapul fan. If you go through prophecy of tele, it's really obviously Lord of the Rings inspired. And it's great. It's not just rip off. It's actually fun. So I wouldn't be surprised if the original idea was zargon or more car is basically saruman, and then mentor is Gandalf. That would make perfect sense to me. And yeah, you could go on and on. But or maybe he looks like skeletor. I mean, he could look like anything. Yeah, I saw that. Like, oh, that's a different take on that marvel winter winter special. And I didn't see that till like the late 90s, early 2000s. I didn't even know that stuff. Yeah, I didn't know it existed either. I think you're maybe like four years older than I am, and I'm probably like a decade behind you as far as community lore, but I'm catching up fast. Yes, you are. You're amazing. You really deep dive into all this stuff. So I really appreciate your feedback on this. And definitely want to do this again, especially if the prophecies come true. And we see frozen horror and elf quest and all the others come out. That would be great to check it out. We're getting in. Oh yeah. So maybe one of my predictions came true, I guess. That's what you're saying on that one. Oh yeah. I think so. I think so. I think you definitely have some insight into the definitely definitely have predicted some things accurately. Awesome. Cool..
"saruman" Discussed on Classic Movie Musts
"Versions jackson had no interest in filming scenes from the books. Ultimate chapter the scouring of the shire in which the four hobbits return home to find their land laid waste by the evil wizard saruman. It could've added twenty minutes or more to the conclusion of the film as it is the film's falling action shows the reuniting of the fellowship arrogance coordination and marriage to our win. The hobbits return to the untainted. Shire where they feel like strangers departure lamented by sam a frodo and the other ring bearers on a ship into the west and finally sam being welcomed home by his wife and children. Some audiences certainly became restless during this long ending. But it is warranted. After ten hours of film it would not have been feasible to say goodbye to frodo. And sam marooned on a rock in the boiling lava of mt doom. After the ring was destroyed jackson deploys flashbacks throughout often expanding on sequences. We have already seen is sealed doors tragic role. The ring bearer introduced in the prologue is elaborated later on in the fellowship of the ring for example when the elf. Lord el ron acidly recalls. How he was there three thousand years ago on the day the strength of men failed when silbert refused to throw the ring into the cracks of mount doom. Instead of showing the capitulation of saruman which in a contentious decision was deleted from the final cut of the release print. The return of the king begins with golan's backstory as the hobbit kind smuggle. He is seduced by the ring into murdering his angler friend for possession of it and devolves into the wretched creature that was seen in the prologue squatting on iraq and gazing at his precious deep under the misty mountains. Some critics complained that they didn't need to be kept up to speed by such flashbacks but like threads being woven into a tapestry. They are integral to the onscreen myth. Making process the ebb and flow of the past and present also replicates the way memories crop up like rocks in our streams of consciousness the notion of interior movement coalescence with the eastward trajectory of frodo and his companions.

"There was no retirement venture and it only gets harder as it gets more difficult to waiting. I don't think is your friend. And i'm not getting younger And i think there's a question about adventure whether you get better as you age or you know when you hit him in marginal returns or when k so i think venture is more young person's businesses persons business so. I don't know that. I want to wait too much longer partially because timescale so if you start thinking about funding new companies that are five to fifteen years away from maturity. That's a long time for me. I'll be thoroughly old by the time. The next generation of companies fund have. Ipo's and so. I think there is a ticking clock. At least i thought the ticking clock on if i were ever to do something differently or different. I would need to do it sooner rather than later. So that would have another five to fifteen years of investments Still young enough To think for myself and then secondarily Before i think there's been an evolution in your founder funds philosophy which is traditionally there fairly passive investors. They sort of write a check and say lockin. We invest in the right people. We don't have to do much. They're extremely proficient at that. They're probably the best in the world of it and they've proven that would have been doing what i call high impact investing trying to be as bold as possible earliest possible as impactful as possible. And i think now there's recognition that both strategies can work and that the combination of the two may be the most effective so for example depending on when you invested how mature company is the right approach may be very different. So company that scaling and working in the management teams really executing. You might not want to intervene or do too much. Actually you're just going to get away Physician's adage of you could do more harm than good versus. I typically invest one. It's like two kids in a proverbial garage and there's a lot of things that the company could use a lot of help. The company could take advantage of that would yield a different outcome or change the probabilities of success at a minimum and so i think over-counter recognition out. They want to do both so two. More consistent strategy also saruman very successful leading investments founders fund is awesome at figuring out which companies are working in how to sort of power money into the companies on the Success before everybody figures it out and my skill is finding things that are brand new that are under the radar that haven't even launched in cases and investing before other people appreciate either the founders the idea and so i can have a vertically integrated fund in some ways where he can double down on the companies that i invest in that half the high potential whereas i don't really do the high conviction investing not growth stages asteroid very rarely invested evaluation. Say above one hundred million dollars. It's extremely anomalous for me. I'm trying to find things before. Other investors have maybe even invested at all right and so it is interesting if you look at founders fund you know has been his such successful fond for so long but the individual people who've been birth did nestle have brand recognition because they weren't necessarily out of central casting Someone once said to me.

"saruman" Discussed on The Naked Scientists
"And that was david pile from the university of oxford and before him chris satire from oxford brookes and their paper was published in the journal. Nature geosciences. both. I we probably all remember learning biogra- saruman school. The triangle one and there was always one kid who asked. When are we ever going to use this in real life. Well it turns out to not only did ancient bolognaise learn about pythagorean triangles. One thousand years before by tigress was even born. They also used them in real life to measure out land. An old clay tablet inscribed with symbols and lying in a museum was the clue that led researchers to this ancient form of matt's as sally has been hearing. We always do. The ancient babylonians were aware of pythagorean triples but we had no idea uae. We had no idea what they were doing. With these objects. that's daniel mansfield from the university of new south wales sydney. Who discovered that. The ancient babylonians were using pythagorean triples. So what is a pythagorean triple. Well we all remember right. Tango triangles from school and calculating the length of the longest side hypotheses because of all the square roots involved even if to the sides and nice whole numbers like five even six centimeters long. The third side is usually a horribly complicated number with lots of decimal places. Which in our case as you will have all worked out already by remembering pythagoras theorem is of course the square root of two twenty five dollars thirty six otherwise known as route sixty one or the rather unpleasant seven point eight one two four nine however for a special group of right angled triangles. All the sides are lovely round numbers for example three four five and if you make triangle with sides that measure three centimeters four centimeters and five centimeters. It's impossible for it to be anything other than perfect right angle. And these special triangles accord. Pythagorean triples mathematician. Daniel was looking at markings written on palm sized flat discs of clay from four thousand years ago. This is about a thousand years before pythagoras was even born to toplitz in particular caught his eye in the museum one. the plumpton. Three two had already been deciphered in one thousand. Nine hundred forty five and it was simply a long list of these. Pythagorean triples much like the triggered a metric tables. You may have looked up in school. But the ancient babylonians probably weren't studying for the maths. Jcs's so why did they need all these triples. that's when a small round. Play tablet drew. Daniel's attention with rectangles and measurements that he realized was a map of field boundaries. Now thanks to this new tablet. We know they were using them to solve problems about land in particular they were using them to create cup. And dick ula boundaries. Why did babylonians need to measure out that land so accurately with such precise right angles. Let's slow it down. Because i want to tell you a story about blandon goldstone. Mass right. At the beginning babylonian society is based on these small cities built around the local temple and all the land around is owned by the local temple. Or maybe a king or palace and they have surveys. But the survey is unlike surveys. They don't measure boundaries. They're just there to tell the local print soul the local temple administrators. How much landscape call. So he can decide for themselves what they earn and they practically on everything they don't need no survey to tell them where their boundaries then at about. This time is old babylonian period something changes and we now see land in the hands of private individuals and private individuals can't decide between themselves necessarily where their boundaries up. You need a surveyor to do that for you now. We see surveys changed what they do instead of just saying oh prince your land. Is this lodge. they say to people. Here's your land. His way you'll end stops in way you'll end stops and they stopped making boundaries now to maintain good boundaries between neighbors. You need to have some confidence in those boundaries and to a babylonian that means you get the right angles just sir and modern society. That's easy you just use trigonometry to make the right angles. But this is a thousand years before trigonometry would have been invented so instead the babylonians using pythagorean triples my should we care about old maths when we've got perfectly functioning nima is so different. Their whole approach to mathematics is just unbelievably different. We tend to think of mathematics. Is this kind of universal language where everyone can agree on on. What at least what. Mathematics is and if aliens came from out of space than we could we may not be able to communicate them in words. But we could. We could share matt. Didn't we send maths on that golden disc out into space. I'm afraid we may. We may have overestimated how universal that was going to be has. Anyone tried using babylonian maths to solve modern problems. We're still trying to figure out what bologna and meth zeus. This is this is all happening. Very quickly actually. The original computers used babylonian method of performing division. Because it's very very simple. I like to think this is still a place in the world for them for simple calculations that chore on his accurate is what you can do now with the modern computer but jeez they're efficient just so very efficient so i like to think there's a place in the both of those kinds of things like in computer graphics where speed is more important than accuracy. Maybe maybe this babylonian approach might have some kind of advantages. Donya mansfield there and you can see photos of that. Clay tablet along with his findings in the journal. Foundations of.

Where two of the famous dread scott's slavery cases were heard in eighteen sixties. So it's in this hub Her story yeah. Also i would love to go to the museum of westward expansion. Just manifest the destiny for me. What a great great time. Were just like kit. Going keep going out. We hit talking. Just keep walking west and west stop. Don't stop so this talk about building. The arch nets. The gateway arch was designed by finnish born american educated architect. Eero serena n- his first name is e. r. o. In his last name is s. a. r. i n. e. n. very finish Very finished speaking of fenland were currently charting and finland so shout tie an issue. This is not good. This is not a good moment for us as far as celebrate. Sorry don't know how to pronounce his name from various artists. Can yell at us on the on the social media this time. 'cause i'm very sorry about that pronunciation and it was erected. The arches erected to commemorate president. Thomas jefferson's louisiana purchase of eighteen or three and to celebrate saint louis is role in the rapid westward expansion. That followed i think i i mean i think having the saint louis arches is obviously amazing. And i'm glad that we do have it. But i do think that they were grasping at straws on what to make a monument for they're like we wanna put something here but like what. What are we gonna celebrate. Among oh i know jimmer the louisiana purchase oria grains roximately like a hundred forty years ago that everybody loves louisiana purchase. They'll get it. It'll be all right. it was. It was a great purchase gray purchase. So as the market and supply point for for traders and explorers including the famous meriwether. Lewis and william clark. The town of saint grew exponentially after the war of eighteen twelve when great numbers of people began to travel by a wagon to seek their fortunes west of the mississippi. I mean i just feel like the episode on lewis and clark that we are going to do in the future Hold onto your hats. We have no. We have no current plans. But i feel i'm ready. I started that episode research at one point and then we swapped it out for something else because like there was a homage or something happened. Like yeah yeah. Yeah so we definitely have to do that episode. Yeah in nineteen forty seven. Nineteen forty eight saruman. We're just gonna say aaron and if it's not right please tell added ziauddin social media. Seran won a nationwide competition to design a monument. Honoring the spirit of the western pioneers in a sad twist defeated. The architect died of a brain tumor in nineteen sixty one and did not have to see. I know And did not live to see. The construction of his now famous arch which began in february of nineteen. Sixty three to bummer. I know poor saruman. I know according to the competitions call for submissions the new monument was to serve as quote a living memory to jefferson's vision of greater opportunities for men of all races and creeds. I don't know about that. i think. Somebody's stretching the truth here a little bit. Maybe it's jefferson himself. But i don't think that was his His what you mccall. It's slogan no. No that was not the tattoo he had on his body. Speaking of his design. Seren instead quote. The arch symbolized the gateway to the west the national expansion. And what not close quote you know. I guess gave talk less national expansion. You know blah blah blah blah like. You know what i'm saying. You know what i'm saying. You feel you feel great. I'm sure i'm sure that he gave a very eloquent answer to this question in like a different interview. Oh yeah seven reason. They pulled the the one at end whatnot. I you know who's them. What's his slake. Everybody's going west. Here's an arch to celebrate that. I love it. Sarunas designers chosen from one hundred and seventy two submissions which included animal sculptures a statue of the signing of the of the louisiana purchase and eros fathers own entry depicting a tall rectangular stone gate. So we both user so seventeen seventy. There's though there. So retro were all about arches. Now euro based his design on the qatari curve or the shape. Ah made by a free hanging chain when held at both ends which begs the question like why. I don't know like you would think there would be some kind of symbolism they're like yeah Who was in chains than the chains are now who is in chains and breaking. I mean about western expansion right. There's now lake free. There's no chains and the chain is then upside down right because shore.

Yeah i actually didn't look at um scarlet hansen's performance Before approaching this character. I'd seen it before but it. It had been a while so it didn't really influence me at all. I see the narrator as an extension of natasha romanoff and she's definitely kind of dry and she understands irony and she's she's just a really cool character though.

Trudeaus Welcome To Canada: Three Years Later
"You supported it at the time, and the numbers would suggest you did you probably remember the first government plane of Syrian refugees arriving in Canada. This week. Canadian airports will be the sights of some first tentative steps in Canada refugees who have fled Syria are slowly beginning to arrive. Now, this is a wonderful night where we get to show not just a planeload of new Canadians. What Canada's all about we had to show the world how to open our hearts and welcome in people who are fleeing extraordinarily difficult situations. Justin Trudeau's brand made a virtue of Canadians welcoming accepting and supporting refugees from around the world and particularly from Syria in the months after Donald Trump when the two thousand sixteen American election with anti immigrant rhetoric Trudeau leaned further into this strategy. You may remember a famous hashtag welcome to Canada. And all the victory laps the liberal government. And to be fair, many of us took and reaction to the global praise. We received for our efforts that was a while ago. And as much as many of us might like to hold onto our image of goodhearted always welcoming world beloved Canada. It's time to ask some questions. Have we lived up to our promise to those refugees? We sponsored them and publicly welcomed them. We gave them jackets and a years worth of sponsorship. And how have they fair is that image of the welcoming Canadian really still who we are a recent survey found for the first time that forty percent of us believe there are too many visible minorities coming to Canada included in that forty percent are seventy one percent of conservatives. The conservatives are currently leading federal election polls by a healthy margin. So have we changed or has this sentiment always being here? And finally, what is it like for people fleeing their home for a better life to arrive in Canada today? And. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Nncholas Kyung is the Toronto star's immigration. Reporter he's been in touch with many Syrian refugees since they arrived in this country. Do you remember back in January of twenty seventeen the hashtag welcome to Canada tweets from Justin Trudeau who can't? Yeah. What did that symbolize back then? And what kind of story did that spark about Canada immigration? And I think that was a different time and era. Trump was elected and his I think it put Trudeau in the very contrasting image. And I think he felt the need to distinguish himself from, you know, our leaders south of the border with all these regular what we call quote unquote, irregular migrants crossing the border. You know, I think he wanted to stick to his image of being an yell liberal leader progressive, you know, I think that's what behind, you know, his tack on on Twitter in the last couple of years has Candida in reality. Walked that talk. When it comes to welcoming, refugees, and emigrants definitely initially. We did right after the liberals were elected. I'm sure you remember the. Image of Ellen Kirti the Syrian child who lying face down. Dad, you know, on a beach in Turkey, and I think that image actually touched hearts of Canadians, and you know, and then we had a, you know, after ten years of the hopper government who whose government had always been criticized as being anti refugees and immigrants because of all these changes they made on immigration policies. So it was very refreshing the beginning to to have a new leader who's actually friendly to refugees and open your doors to refugees. And and and think you know, that actually received a Trudeau received a lot of accolades from, you know, a lot of Canadians, but then, you know, something out of his control, you know, no one anticipated that was the election of Trump, and the kind of implications of his travel bans, a his anti immigration immigrants, especially to do with the undocumented, including the dreamers that actually driven a lot of. Undocumented, you know, migrants south of the border to cross the border into the states. And I think you know, it started off being just trickling in you know, in in Manitoba and a little bit in Quebec. And then when the word God out and just you know, they just coming in in droves. Yeah. And I'm sure that liberal government also was caught off guard by it. And then, you know, I think the sentiment changed. I was actually talking to a friend this morning about how the idea of, you know, who is more deserving immigrants the idea the introduced in ten years by Jason Kenny, I think, you know, he was the first one who introduced you know, who is more deserving immigrants. You know ranking, you know, permanent residents skilled immigrants would be about, you know, try someone trying to be sponsored round under feminine family reunification, and then you have the real refugees and a bogus refugees. And I think that that concept actually was introduced. And then, you know, now, you know, we would hear, you know, even refugees criticizing the the regular migrants crossing from the states as jumper, and average is also criticizing I think, you know, it's very interesting to see how that legacy of dividing even amount migrant groups and advocates are we seeing a change in more than just perception have the liberals made any recent changes to that policy. I'll definitely and I think what is interesting last Monday. I'm sure you remember somewhere burried in their three hundred ninety two and ninety seven page a federal budget. Yeah. There were some changes about how to close that loophole in what we call the safe third country agreement for those, you know, audience who are not familiar with what the safe third country agreement is basically, then any asylum seekers from seeking protection in, you know, if they first arrived in the states that cannot, you know, just cross the border into Canada and make. An Silom claim and vice versa. Glad there's a provision in that agreement that actually if you know a migrant actually cross between of the official ports of entry. Meaning that if they manage to sneak in to the country than they're not down by that restrictions. So that's what we are seeing when the word got out, you know, a lot of people knowing that someone successfully managed to get through the border, you know, some would say irregularly or some, you know, conservatives with them illegally causing the different change in the policy in the last two years. You know, you've heard a lot of criticisms from advocates general public, you know, veering that, you know, all of a sudden we'd closing down a border like what the stays in a Trump has done between Mexico and the US like is it a demarcation of a new trend. You know, or is just you know, an election maneuver, you know, before the Tober election. We don't know we'll have to see I feel like there's kind of. Of a contradiction in terms of the way, we like to think of ourselves and hold up. I know I've done it myself. I've got many friends and acquaintances who do it who really treasure that idea of candidate being incredibly welcoming immigrants and refugees from all over the world. And then you start to see these signs that not only are the loopholes being closed, but public perception has shifted, and I wonder in your work have the people you talk to who are refugees or who work with refugees. Have they seen the same kind of welcoming that we like to talk about on the ground in practice. You know, as interesting, you know, when when we talk about public opinions, you know, the issues about discrimination and racism, you know, I think it has never gone away. But I just feel now with the issue over the irregular migration from the states with, you know, all the nationalist movements in we're seeing in Europe, South of the border in the states and. You know, we had last year we had a mayoral candidate. I'm not going to name her because I think as you know, I just don't want her name be heard, you know, running for mayor as the mayor of the city. I think you know, it's just a matter of you know, in all this public polls people just become more vocal. You know, we have always heard about Canadians being polite being nice in. I came as an immigrant myself when I was twenty three years old that was like longtime ago as a newcomer, you know, you always could feel it, you know, from body language from you know, it doesn't have to be verbally someone is being discriminatory, but you just being more sensitive more where an edge just feel though sentiments always there. But you know, it's just a matter of one I think the volume of than the volume meaning the number of immigrants coming the source country. They're coming from. Meaning, you know, they're more, you know migration. Global migration the move on movement always from developing country to develop country. These people are looking forward, you know, that alive. Not a worse life, right? Yeah. So the source country, meaning that, you know, the major source would be from Africa from the Middle East and from Asia, and I think that, you know, ratio combination and the volume definitely, you know, a contributing contributing factors to promote that kind of nationalist populist movement. Plas-, you know, you have you know, politicians playing contra and divide. My feeling is those sentiments just coming about surface. Now instead of being, you know, hidden, you know, you know, now, you, you know, you would hear you know, even politicians talking about the idea of political correctness. And I think, you know, even back in the nineties, you know, those would be considered like French opinions menaul, you you know, is publicly debate. I'm not all I'm like, you know, four for public dialogues on you know, how politically correct should Canadians b but I just feel the way, you know, you talk. About these issues. You know, you have to be really careful you don't want to see what's what has happened in Europe happening in Canada because we are way more diverse in our population. If we have die kind of divisive emotions among as we would be in bigger trouble than just, you know, one community against another because it would be like a chaos like many communities against many different communities and the two and some years since we really started welcoming a large amount of Syrian refugees. What have we seen in terms of what their lives are like what issues they faced how well they've settled in Canada because I feel like we heard a lot about them when they first arrived. And we welcome them. With open arms says we love to tout. And then obviously, there's a whole process that happens away from the cameras. Uh-huh. We actually at the the star. We actually did last year was the third year at a third verse ary of their Saruman of the first wave of Syrians arriving. And we did, you know, do, you know a series of stories to look at how well they have integrated. They have not integrated and one of the, you know, I in general like, I think my observation as, you know, just like any migrants, you know, you have the issues about adjustment to a couch her to new language about finding jobs finding housing it is no different from if you and I would move from Toronto to toback or two I think you back would be a better example because of the language difference. But the thing is, you know, we would have, you know, the, you know, already support social support network of friends and sometimes families to help us out. But I think for refugees under the big difference is they don't come here by choice. If you remember when you know initially when the series arrived. Which interview a lot of Syrians? And you know, they didn't you never heard of Canada before they didn't want to come. And if they had a choice some of them actually wanted to go back and six months when the war was over. Really? That's what they told me. But for a lot of immigrants, I think especially immigrants they come here by choice to come here with the skills. They wanted to make a bad alive if not for themselves, if as we heard about, you know, doctors driving cabs phenomenon before, but at least, you know, for the second joined they raised generations. They wanted them to succeed to have a good education. But you know, that's by choice. You know, they always have the choice to go back before refugees. They don't have that choice. What kinds of resources are available to them? And and one of the reasons we're talking to you today is because there's a a story out of Calgary of a nine year old hours that story. Yeah. Of a nine year old Syrian refugee girl who took her own life, and she was being bullied at school. Which is I mean on the one hand is something that not just refugee kids face. But I wonder what kind of resources are available for. For those folks who might be going through that because I can only imagine what that would be like in combination with trying to integrate, and, you know, a language barrier and everything else before we before you answer your questions. I just want to talk about little bit of the terminology the terminology of refugees. Okay. Because I think there's a lot of inner confusion among the public. You know, they think refugees refugees refugees, but they're actually different categories of of refugees. You know, what we talk about this Syrian refugees that, you know, a lot of community groups have sponsored in the last few years, we call those sponsored refugees, meaning that the regard the destination by UNHCR the UN United Nations refugee agency, so to find them as legit refugees. And they are being they had to go through medical clearances and security clearances by Canadian officials before they are being resettled as permanent residents in Canada. Meaning that when he arrived there already permanent residents, right? But I I think. Sometimes people confuse, you know, confuse them with refugees who come across the US border. We call those, you know, you know, technically illegally as asylum seekers because they are status still undecided. Meaning they still need to go before a refugee judge to get present their claims why they need Canada's protection, and you know, and then we'll be a positive or negative decision. So there are different surfaces afford to you know, though, the Syrians who are sponsor to Canada, and those asylum seekers who actually just come here for protection when we talk about, you know, two Syrians, they're known to kind of social and community services available available to them as no different from. You know, any, you know, if someone come as an architect or a lawyer they're eligible to any, you know, housing surfaces a counseling, including mental health counseling, employment counseling, and they get helped to rage. The kids go to school to enroll the kids in schools and. Everything that you can think of you know, and for your initial settlement. But when we talk about the asylum seekers because you know, their status in Canada, still uncertain. So there's actually very limited government surfaces actually available to them. Yes. The kids can go to school. They can apply for a work permit to work in Canada. But before or you know, you know, there's an outcome. You know, whether they've been acepted as refugee or not they would not be able to let's say to get, you know, housing support or you know, some of the other services. Yep. So, you know, it's so it depends on which group we're talking about, you know, there's, you know, again, you know, comes down to that different labellings of refugees and migrants when you talk to people who don't know much about your line of work and find out what are some of the biggest questions, you get or or myths that you have to tackle. Because I feel like this is an issue that everybody has an opinion on right now. And it's really nuanced. I can tell you that covering emmigration the right for prob probably the most polarizing beat and initial sperm. There's no gray area people either for it or against it. You know, for every story that you know, I've filed in the paper, you know, run into paper somehow people can find a way to criticize. No. And and you know, you have a bleeding liberal. You're you you have a bleeding hearts, and you know, about being a left wing propaganda all these stories, but some of the biggest may have is really interesting that has been going around for God to be like eighteen years now that refugees in a refugee claimants, they actually could get over three thousand dollars of government benefits a month, which is a myth because longtime ago eighteen years ago. I I did a story about government-sponsored refugees, and they receive a startup check of you know, for to cover the first month last month, rand and other benefits. But is only one time. You know, I forgot about the amount. And that each month they would from then on word they would receive a welfare check of. I think. At the time. It was five hundred seventy dollars, and then words Scott out, and you know, spread on the internet that these people were, you know, these people referring to Reggie claim is actually the God, you know, over three thousand dollars tax payers dollars from you. And I every month instead of like, you know, didn't say it was a huge portion of that was a one time when time benefits, and then, you know, even today, I still thought to see those Email not emails, but those inflammation recycled online, and your and other baked one would be how come, you know, the queue-jump queue-jumping thing as Sean? Yeah. But people don't realize that you know, these different programs being sponsored two candidates process. You know by different unit within immigration Canada. You know, the the asylum-seekers they are being dealt with by the immigration and refugee board immigration programs handled. I and again, you know, immigration units within immigration. So it's not like, you know, I cannot jump the keel because I'm not in the. Q? How can I jump the queue? This is just very interesting. But then, you know, you have all these, you know, the the for example, immigration applicants who got caught up in in the backlog, which I'm playing how come refugees the chewed have met with more respect than, you know, by the government and the who actually come here with my skills eager to contribute to the your economy. It's, you know, very fascinating, those kind of comments and criticisms when you talk to refugees on the Silom seekers of these days, how aware are they that they are the most divisive issue in the upcoming election potentially that there's this huge conversation going on around them. I think there is you know, not enough awareness. I think you know, one is a lot of them. They're just so occupied by getting the protection in the process, you know, talking to their lawyers trying to collect, you know, a police report from Hungary or from Czech Republic to prepare for the claims. Like, I'm talking about the the the more recent arrivals. And then, you know, the those who have been here but longer there ups, you know, they're occupy their occupied by, you know, the next step is the settlement housing, you know, how their kids are doing in school. Maybe some of them have to do with post traumatic stress disorder. You know with the mental health challenges, depression, you know, that was that in after, you know, the first twelve to eighteen months, and, you know, I've probably, you know, Canadian politics would be the last thing they have. In mind to be honest. But they do, you know, if you talk to any refugees, I think especially those already being granted status in Canada. They always praise them about how grateful they are here to be given a new life. How safe their kids would feel, you know, if you talk to, you know, refugees who are here, you know, GT keel, refugees, they'll talk about you know, how happy they are to be able to themselves. You know, they only have good things to talk about China. And they they don't take new lives for granted. I think that's the best part about, you know, sometimes, you know, no offense to Canadians khanate Canadian Canadians, but there are dissents of talking about the sense of entitlement. Sometimes I think, you know, maybe Canadians may have a stronger sense of entitlement than some of these refugees who don't take what they receive a granted easily. Do they feel the ground shifting? I mean, we've mentioned new polls in new campaigns that that show that Canadians in general are starting to take a harder. Line on immigration and refugees. Do they feel that that that's happening? Definitely for example, last last week the Ontario budget actually completely strip any funding for legal services for immigrants and refugees. So I went out to talk system advocates and talk to you refugee claimants who actually got caught a by the funding cuts. You definitely feel the ground shifted a little bit that you know, is not as open as friendly during the time when we opened the doors for the Syrians, especially when you talk to because during the the border crossing some people crisis from the states, we I did talk to a lot of people who cross the borders and why they're here and what their circumstances were the feeling towards Canada. And I I'm been in touch with some of them to what is interesting as you know, when they first arrive, you know, they were so grateful, but it's slowly slowly, you know, especially the the ones who are. English speaking, for example, a Nigerian family that I've kept in touch with because they they do look you to watch the media the TV, and they understand the language. So they are able to observe the transit the changes. They would tell me, you know, when they first got here, and you know, it's an open door policy, and they talked about that tweet by by Trudeau, right? And then now, you know with all this, you know, changes they do feel that you know, there's a shift in the they they don't see necessarily as Canadians attitudes immigrants shifted, but more like in terms of at least from the policy government policy perspective, it has shifted. How important is it for Canada to keep that image that Trudeau showed the rest of the world with that tweet weather or not? And I'm saying this whether or not we actually live up to it on the ground. But in the fact that that's what the rest of the world holds up Canada has and I think you would get a different response. If you talk to people in Berta versus you know somewhere into Perez. Versus the rest of Canada, or you know, incubating, and you know, we all heard about the the the Bill twenty one to the Bill to about secularism. Yup. I think you you get a different response. If you talk to, you know, different people from different provinces that image is out there. Like that is not I'm not outsiders. Yes. People just we know that which has more which provinces tend to be more insight candidates, quite divisive for sure. But like, I mean that is you see all those tweets and Facebook posts from Americans every time Trump does something horrible on immigration, or whatever that says, you know, what Canada's not like this. But is interesting. I think in the recent these two months I've seen in different American publications including newspapers, I think there was the story in New York Times as well about, you know, the the the shifts, you know, they mentioned all mentioned about Trudeau's tweet ragged at the, you know, what was happening recently, you know, in terms of his policies, and you know, they made a great big feature about the changes. We, you know, you know, burried in the but federal budget announcement and the close of the in the safe third countries and slowly and slowly, you know, because the star we do have like an immigration Facebook group like where we have members from you know, cross the border around the world. You started to see sometimes, you know, I see the tweets from people that I follow. They follow me about those sentiments like slowly, you know, I think people outside of Canada started to notice those changes as well as good is it bad. Like, I I don't know like I can't judge. But definitely I think people notice those policy changes. But what I would like personally would like to people to to see is the context the context of we are having an election coming those policy changes are driven by politics and just how ugly politics can be. And you know, and I hope hopefully, people would see that you know, what we could blame politicians, but just don't blame. Those people the vote Orebro people who need protection who was just wants a better life a safer life.
