Who Was Warlord Vortigern?
"Island of great britain was originally an island that was inhabited by celtic peoples. It was later occupied by roman became a roman province yet. The people who live on the island didn't end up speaking a celtic or romance language. They ended up speaking a language that belong to the germanic family of languages. The following story. A might have had something to do with how that happened. More on that in a bit the events in question date back to the late fifth century. This is a period of british history. That has some major holes. The roman empire had collapsed and nothing had really risen to take its place. There are many warlords and kings who vied for power. This was the period of time. When according to legend king arthur would have ruled so pretty much everything from this period is kind of questionable one of the rulers at that time was a warlord named voter turn. He was the leader of the britons in the wake of the roman collapse from what accounts we are told. He got to his position via a lot of duplicity and skulduggery supposedly. He had worked his way into a position of influence with the romans took advantage of that to usurp the throne the to rightful heirs. Were a pair of young brothers named or really ascend brosius and author and they were sent overseas for their education ford gern. Having assumed the throne had a hard time holding onto power he was constantly dealing with incursions from the picks and the scots and the north he was also dealing with the potential of an armada joining the two brothers to take back the throne. his solution to deal with. These problems was to hire mercenaries. Hiring mercenaries wasn't necessarily a bad idea it had been done throughout history with various levels of success. Forty gern contract out the work to to saxon brothers by the name of hen. Gist and horsa. They would bring in dramatic mercenaries to fight off the picks and the scots on behalf of the britain king in exchange for their services voltigeur offered this accents. The isle of janet to settle on today the island is actually a peninsula in the county of kent. Fifteen hundred years ago it was an island separated by six hundred meter channel. The saxon brought over at least eighteen warships full of warriors and probably many many more over time and there was something else that hingis brought over with him. His daughter rowena ruina was by all accounts very beautiful and iger in was spin with her
"saxon" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"I can't remember from incheon this a minute ago but I i wonder about like what are the natural limits on tempo. So if if you have something that is occurring at regular intervals People will can eventually start to pick that out as kind of rhythm and maybe if there are certain tonality associated with it. Most people would say okay. I think this is the sound is intended to be a kind of music. But like how slow can the repetition of of whatever that sound is get. Or how fast can it get. Before you have foreclose the possibility that anybody listening to it will think that it's supposed to be musical southbound. If you imagine a song has Has one beat per minute are would most people who hear that sound be likely to perceive that as rhythm or perceive it as music spontaneously unless they were prime to in some way i would guess probably not but like what's the limit their like how slow tempo get and consequently also. How fast can it get before you reach the point where people are not hearing music. They're just here in kind of a buzz or a were as i say. This thunder is rumbling. Right outside my window. I don't know likes picking that up. It also reminds me of the The fictional drug in the dune novels suda which Which of course you in the in the books where we're told that individuals will take some oda in order to enjoy some moody music. Which is a special kind of music that is just going to sound like just straight garbage unless you're currently using this mysterious narcotic owes it like a chopped and screwed thing i don't know but it also i think there was something similar in In a brass is get the the british satire series from chris morris in which they were people who would take this fictional drug called cake and they would listen to some sort of music and of course it likes music. It sounds like garbage unless you on this fictional drug. Have you seen the cake episode. You know. I haven't oh it's it's so good.

Viking-Age Treasure: New Insights Into Life 1000 Years Ago
"Martin tell me something about the culture of the area where they scored was found in medieval scotland. So galloway is a region of southwest scotland. That has a long coast that connects it to the irish. Saying but in the ninth century a it would be part of the anglo saxon kingdom of northumbria and so it was referred to in contemporary irish. Sauces added the saxon coast. It has linguistic background. That is very complicated. Because the result of returning ca is because modern welsh linguistic background than you've got an sort of anglo-saxon political control and at the period that the holidays buried you're just beginning to get another linguistic lab as people who are of scandinavian origin. But have been living in this irish. He region for at least a century beginning to settle an occupying particular areas within galloway. and so it's. It's quite a complicated part of the country. And the whole it seems to be buried precisely this time of linguistic and social change and that is a very interesting background and it's also reflected within the material but in old
"saxon" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Anglo-saxons the terms that people used during the period to describe themselves in the vernacular were most commonly english or anglo kin. There's no record of it in english manuscripts from shortly after the norman conquest in ten sixty six until the sixteen hundreds. What changed at the time. It started to be used more frequently. It was tied to colonization back in the seventeenth century. Empire was starting to manifest and nationalist tone. They started to look back at the centuries before and they wanted an origin story so instead of referring to themselves as english they wanted to be. Pure anglo-saxons so there was this purity attached to it. And that was for colonization and so in britain that term started to seep into academic circles and then into the public in the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries there was something called medieval ism where writers and politicians were really reflecting on an imagined past. And that's when the term really took off it did mean almost exclusively white and so. It became a dog whistle and it carried forward into american politics. So this isn't something. That's exclusively an american problem. But for the america first caucus to us that it stood out right away because it's all mythology that they are using and they're advancing a white supremacist narrative and it's very dangerous. Everything's sort of layered on a false understanding of history. So the term anglo saxon has been used to describe a certain purity but angles and the saxons weren't indigenous to and anyway which means the idea of pointing to them as original misses. The larger context is that a valid way to describe the irony here. You're absolutely right. There is definitely an irony there that these angles and saxons weren't originally from britain. They came as migrants they migrated from modern day germany the netherlands and other areas in the northern regions of europe and we can connect to the puritans or the english who came over to the americas the terms are always softened to say they migrated just like the angles and the saxons. But when its other people that language is never as soft whether they're invading or immigrants are taking over. How has the use of the term anglo saxon evolved if at all it was always used for propaganda. It's always been weaponized for nationalist reasons. People generally don't know that there has always been this conflict in terms of the use of it. My colleague eric wade and i are discovering that even back one hundred fifty years ago there were scholars predominantly in britain. Who were saying you're using this term that is historically incorrect. So it's almost like we just keep going through this same sort of cycle. Every two hundred years. Is there a particular political or social context that tends to surround the moments when people looked back to so called anglo-saxon political traditions. What are the most famous examples of people. Using and misusing the term. Thomas jefferson perpetuated the anglo saxon myth. His idea of what. America should be was the next and he referred to it as the anglo saxon project..
The Thousand-Year Rose
"So. This is almost smack dab in the center of germany which means it's smack dab in the center of continental europe and in medieval times. It was an important spot for the bronze industry they exported works all over but the thing that really put it on the map the rose as with any good myth. There are a few different versions of this origin story. But here's a popular. Take on it back in the eight hundred. There's a guy named charlemagne charles. The great he was one of those old school emperors ruled over huge parts of europe and he was also one of those emperors who took his christianity very seriously. You don't have to know who the saxons are. But when charlemagne conquered them he decreed that the either had to become christians or be put to death his son and heir was called louis the pious and in the year eight fifteen louis was enjoying himself on a hunt in central germany. When he got pretty badly lost louis was trying to find his bearings when he happened upon a wild rose bush that was blooming right through the snow. We couldn't believe his eyes and his crew caught up with him. He told them he wanted to build a cathedral. They're dedicated to the virgin mary. In according to legend he was actually carrying. Some of mary's remains with him in the rose is very important and the story of the foundation of sign in combination with a reliquary with relics of the virgin. Mary and so. It was told that the virgin mary and is. We'll protect this place. That's kouadio director of the cathedral's museum when she says reliquary. She means the spot within the cathedral where mary's remains are held that and the rose turned hildesheim into a pretty big deal pretty quickly.

Choosing the right course for you
"At the moment i have a five year old and if he asked him what he wants to do he we'll tell you that he wants to be a fine and a builder and he's having trouble understanding that you could probably do both of those at the same time but when you were five years old what did you want be when you grow up excellent question. I think was a handful of different things that i was interested in very very different to what i've decided on his show. Yeah i think at one point. I wanted to be an architect. I'm very into my crafts and getting a bit creative so that was one of the options. My mom was a hairdresser as well. So that was another thing that i wanted to pursue. Think i still would like to do that on the side verb. If i'm really that's yeah yeah. It's changed a lot over the years. Pabst eating as well which yeah rain. Good to have a chat to you back in the day. That's okay. we can still chat whenever you want. It's interesting isn't it like when when kids a little. They obviously only have a small experience of what jobs are out there. And like you said you know your mom was a hairdresser off and not taking another one. That's what i wanted to be. When i was five and then went away from it and then came back to it so just interesting as we get older and we exposed to more different careers and things like that that we get some different understanding about what we might live today. So let's let's forward from there and go to yet ten so i'd like to find out. What sort of student were you when you were india. Ten and starting to think about vca and what subjects you liked to do. So y- attend. May was i think i was about to move schools so i was very studies focused and think i'm a little bit. I say day with how. I like my notes and that sort of thing is very much focused. Yeah my schooling. Liked it a sport as well. So that's what. I was a good outlet as well to keep me bit balanced. Yeah it is good to have that that balance particularly i reckon going into. Aca find lots of students decide at that point that they're to create spot and it makes me really sad because i think that it's it's such a good outlet win. You actually really hot to go out. And you have iran or place a bowl. Whatever it is that you do. Did you find as you were going through. Definitely something that practical israel. I think we've oh sort of come to realize that especially with lockdown recently. How important it is to get outside and get some sunshine and well to break up the day. Yeah absolutely so. What subjects did you end up choosing. Vca yes say nba say. I did maths methods. I did. I thought i was going to be doing special because i did love maths but didn't end up doing that. I did chemistry biology english and french. Actually okay great. Yeah and french's that's an iceland to have in there is all. I actually did quite similar subjects that deep german instead. And i find that people often he the combination and think. It's a bit weird. But i really loved having like that. Language was just different to the math and sciences and Did you have that with french. Slow i think science. I think after doing it for the four years. It was sort of like. Why wouldn't i continue on. And i think it really progresses in basie a and that's when it can really be used become useful when you decide to travel later on yet awesome. Sorry at that point in time when you were choosing your subjects. Did you notice or like way you are now. Did you have an idea of what you would like to do when you school. So just a heads up as you would have head from kinsey tribe side to do medicine. I think i had thought about it at that point so it was in the back of my mind but i don't think i was one hundred percent that that was what i wanted to write. I think I knew that. I loved maths. I love science so that was mainly my goal is at that point just to continue on with that and sort of kepa arpan to decide a bit later on yet. And that's that makes sense as well like you say your if that's what your strengths lie. Sorta the advice that i try and give students. If you follow your strengths and interests you'll end up being able to do courses that you want to if you not into maths and things like that thing there's no point following them too much because the courses that you wanna do require it and vice versa or if you do really like it then you should do it because you'll end up using it later on. Sorry so we face the you're doing those subjects. How one's vca did you. Did you go through it really easily. Did you have some ups and downs. What were the those two years. However they view i think yes so basically for me was a little bit challenging actually mainly at the beginning i had just moved schools. That the static year eleven. Sorry i grew up in Ever of school and it was very much focused on sporting whereas when i moved to the suburbs it was more academics. I think goes a big wakeup coal. To say i guess the competition as a whole and with basie a for instance. I had to repeat my math methods. They hit advised me like had a discussion with me that i think that was the best sort of route for me to go down and i think hearing. It's you feel like that's horrible. What do you mean. I have to repeat it like thinking that i was completely fine before that with mass and something that i had always been i guess gifted or was my strength so i think that was a really good learning experience to say that while it was hot to hear. It was the best thing that i had done. Oh that i could be in terms of preppy maitha really optimizing my busy in the following year and year twelve. It is really good as well at the school recognized that and and gave you. That feedback allows you to do that. Really early on said he just moved to the school so for them to make that call really early to make sure that you were really well prepared but as you say it's not it's not easy to hear that kind of thing and i imagined as a student at the time that was quite difficult also really glad you mentioned it because i know that i say lots of students asking about what sort of what sort of percentage they need on saxon things throughout the year and what i heart. People will understand by the example that you've given is that different. Schools have different standards of assessment within the school. And that's why say works the way. It does with the focused more on the exams because they're external and in this the sort of scaling of the subjects or the the study scores within the schools to make things more. Even so yeah. It's good that you highlighted that that can be different at different schools. It's very interesting interesting experience. I think yeah and a unique experience lot substitutes wouldn't wouldn't get that they wouldn't understand the difference because you most units are at one school move. Aca so yeah. It's an interesting insight that you had okay. So what tepes would you have the current students. What are some things that you did in year. Twelve or that you wish you had done any twelve to make life easier. Sorry i think something that. I still try to constantly. My studies is goal setting. I think that is sorry. Bake i think especially students that would have just gone through lockdown realizing how day can poss- without getting a whole lot done so just having go set in the morning to take off and yeah just feels good. You can take them off and you can say that you've been productive throughout the day as well while not not being hot on your south on those days where you had a good day and yet just waking up the next day saying how can i be better. Had i do better than the day before and now the thing is i think yes. Sorry to interrupt. But i think that is so important because i think it's really easy to think about all the stuff that you didn't do and you didn't get done whereas economically somewhat. He did get done. And then as you say if you do have an off day what can get done the next day

So i hope you enjoy that and i hope you'll enjoy our visit with mark. Saxon weather was some big news concerning the major league baseball owners and major league baseball players yesterday like we will have spring training at least for the time being starting on time and one hundred and sixty two games a memo sent by the commissioner rob manfred to say. Hey let's go. Let's play one sixty to prepare as if we're starting spring training on time. Let's bring in our baseball insider. And that is marked. Saxon covers the saint louis cardinals. Hey mark always great to hear your voice how things going fantastic and good to be with you. my friend. that was exciting news. It seemed maybe like just a tad premature. We'll have to see how the rollout happens in in terms of the vaccine and everything like that but just the notion that you know a month from now or so players could be congregating and getting ready to compete. That's amazing. I think it is and you know john moselle was saying that. This is a big week for baseball in terms of you've got some arbitration cases that you're gonna figure out. Make sure that you know you get those guys signed officially and you get the terms. But if you're starting to prepare to get not only the players and i think that's what we have to remember here. It's not only the players but you're talking about a full medical team. You're talking about a coaching staff. You're talking about a manager. you're talking about a front office. You're talking about a lot of people that are behind the scenes with these individual teams down to florida or wherever. You're at and relocating essentially your business. You've got five weeks to do it. So you're talking about living quarters in. Oh by the way there's a pandemic so you know you almost trying to set up a suto bubble if you can. This is very tough to do. So if you're going to do it. Time is of the essence. And i'm sure that's what major league baseball is feeling right now. The pressure to get this thing done and it's it's it's time to do it. I mean he gotta start making these decisions right now. Right and it's it's kind of on the individual teams to get it done right. It's kind of like what we saw.

Young Chicago students begin return to classroom learning
"More than 6000 Chicago Public school students came back to their school today, but another 72,000 are cuter return in a few weeks. Schools chief Janice Jackson says she's excited about in school instruction. Really happy to see our students, our youngest students some of our most vulnerable students here today, learning because they deserve equality, education, but Saxons plans are facing some headwinds. Today. Some teachers and staff stayed home. They face losing pay being blocked from their virtual classroom and eventually fired. Kate O'Rourke is among them. She teaches a preschool class of special education students. We also have to fight back and say no. Not yet. Not until our schools and communities are ready, and we have a plan we can trust. Aurore says She doesn't feel safe going into schools when community positivity rate. Ours high is 16% and, she says, not one of her students signed up for in person learning. School district officials haven't yet provided numbers on how many staff defied orders to come to school today, but as administrator tried to bring more students and staff into schools over the next few weeks. We need support from the teacher's union. Otherwise, the school system could face a possible strike. Still, some principals and teachers are trying to make the best out of the situation here. A dog's elementary on the southwest side of the city teacher Eileen Martens, start out her afternoon preschool session. Explaining to the three year olds how things will be different. I know when you're excited to see your friends or teachers. Sometimes you want to give a hug, but we can't do that this year.

Give her an air high five
Is this what the Pats need to do to improve their defensive line?
"In. I really like adam butler like dietrich wise a little bit but at both these guys i think point to the fact that the patriots defensive line is not where it needs to be right now and they have a lot of work to do a front and i would add to this next guy john. Simon sort of into that equation as well as an edge defender as a place where they could really use an upgrade. I would similar to atom. Butler is john simon and the fact that in his in his role right. Now i don't know if he's fully capable of handling it last year when they had a lot more depth at the edge in the linebacker of hybrid position with calvin nolan Land roberts jamie collins. A johnson played less than fifty percent of the snaps this year. He's now playing about seventy sound snaps on defense in production. Hasn't gone up at all nowadays. Play a slip This is starting essentially starting edge player with four quarterback heads into saxon the year so the passwords progression. Just isn't there at all and you still on the film. He's not really getting off blocks at all. He's now pressuring the quarterback from the edge and on he's coverage player. He's he's he's a veteran. he's smart. But i think ultimately if your signing him to be a seventy percent seventy percent of the defensive snaps guy is he. He can be liability times as you reduce his role some to to the way they wanna use in butler ideally then he can be more effective so it really depends argue with finding upgrade in the draft. Is you taken a plane. More snaps on the edges chase. Winovich can not mysteriously disappear at times and be more full-time player on the edge. Then john fits better. But if you're not going to do that i don't really think he's worth bringing back. If he's going to be a fulltime star that position they want you to rush. Cover drop the coverage off the edge and at the edge of the defense. And that's what you're gonna do as seventy percent player at opposition. It's really tough. I mean that's not an easy thing to do. And i i think the john simon does one of those things as starter level or baby obama replacement level. I should say and that set the edge. The other two things rushing the passer dropping into coverage. Not so much for the problem that they've route into is that chase winovich. Joshu are not ready to be every dow players yet so you're sort of caught with a bunch of one dimensional guys. J. winovich ideal passing downs players. But john simon's better more before stouter at setting the edge. It's like if you combine those guys to one player than the aggregrate football player. That's not how it works. I think the agents run into problems this year with sort of constantly needing to mix and match right in in rotate guys in and out of. What's the situation. What's the down and distance and that can work and they've done that effectively in the past but more a lot more. This season is aided in years in the past teams have identified those types of players and said okay. We know we have signed out here. We know we have winovich john here and they've been able to take a little bit more advantage of those types of
How did we name our days and establish the weekend?
"All right. Welcome to the podcast. So this topic stems from a conversation. I had with our thirteen year. Old son pete a couple of weeks ago on monday afternoon as we drove home from basketball practice. Pete was lamenting the fact that the weekend had gone by so quickly and decided that weekend should be four days long and the workweek or in his case. The school week should only be three days. that sounds about right. Yep so this conversation naturally led to the questions who decided how long the weekend should be and how were the days named that. I thought was a perfect topic for this podcast. And that's pretty good. See that's exactly why we came up with this podcast. We wanted to answer these kinds of questions that we know people have every day right. I mean it really is perfect. So let's start with how the days of the week were named. And i know honey. You've been researching this so go ahead and start us off. Okay be glad to so. Let me begin by saying that. Each of the various resources. I found on. This topic had some variations but generally they were all in agreement and really. That's not unusual for our research. So i'm going to present a version that is a sort of a homogenized version of all of these. Okay that makes it okay. So prior to christianity specifically in the days of the babylonians there were several pagan. Gods running around doing things with thunder and lightning and water and stuff like that. That was probably a pretty interesting time. So at the same time the babylonians were also very into studying our planets and the moon and the sun and placed a lot of importance on these heavenly bodies So at some point between around nine thousand nine hundred bc and five forty bc. The babylonians decided that there would be seven days a week and that they'd be named after the five known planets plus the sun and the moon since the sun and the moon were the best known in the most important they would start the week So back then and still today. They started the week with sunday and then monday followed. So the first two are obvious. Sunday in mundi right but then they went in order of the slowest to fastest in the earth's sky. So tuesday was named after mars wednesday after mercury thursday after jupiter and friday after venus. Okay those don't sound anything like our days except in spanish they do well. They don't see on anything like our english days. Yes yes and there is a distinction here. Okay because that has to do with two things one language and the pay to the pagan gods gotta in the language of the day. They were basically saying mars is day right. Mercury's day and so on. But when the anglo saxons invaded great britain which was much more recent on the world or timelines they decided to swap out the planet names for their god's names. Okay so you take over from here alright. So these more. Recent folks left sunday and monday alone but they named tuesday after the norse god of justice to t i w they named wednesday after the most powerful norse god odin or warden and widens day eventually morphed into wednesday. It's a little bit of a stretch right but that also helps explain the weird spelling of wednesday which i've never understood. These are all based on the old english form of the english language. Yes thursday if you think in terms of famous pagan gods you can probably figure out. Third equals thor right so thursday is the perfect day to get out and do some hammering on carpenters. Really love thursdays. They're big right. Finally friday was named after odin 's wife frigg which is a very unfortunate name so frig f. r. i g. g. was said to be nearly as powerful as her husband so she got her own day. Frig day eventually became friday. And for some reason i forgot to mention saturday which is horrible. Because saturday's the best day saturday is named after again. You can figure it out if you go back to the planet's part sadder saturday saturn's day so is named after the planet saturn. We didn't change and we didn't change that to a god right because saturday's the best day we don't wanna change. Don't make it not the best right. So you've got saturday sunday and monday. That remain named after heavenly bodies in the rest or named after norse gods yup and there you go there. There's your week boom
Talking to Your Kids About Sex With Shafia Zaloom
"She fears aloom welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. Yes. Of course. I'm excited that you're here because I have been on this sort of obsessive track lately around I mean for for many years I've been doing this. You've been do in doing this for longer than I. Have I think but I've been doing about fifteen years and it was mostly you know educating talking to adults who want to realize is that now I have a lot of young people, my life three nieces who are teens and friends, kids age and. In the last five ten years. Wow there. There's no sex education. I realize how similar the questions that people are asking me that the young people are asking me adolescents about sex are very similar to what adults are asking, and also a lot of people calling in listening this show because now they have teenagers and they want to know what do we do? How do we talked about Saxon problem because? If they parents never learned how do we actually talk to our kids about sex I know you've made this your life's work. and. So Sheffield tell me a little about yourself like what's your? What's your background? How'd you get into sex education? we you know I always had to have really positive relationships in my life and that made all the difference for me in a really quality education. and. So I was a social worker when I first got out of school and was working with. Kids in treatment centers as an alternative to incarceration who had a lot you know who are wrestling with a ton of issues at all really revolves around relationships or you know the type of relationships they had had as they were growing up and after several years of that realized, they really needed to get into more preventative work versus so much inventive work so that I could sustain my own life and start a family and do all those things and because relationships in education had always been such a strong force in my life I chose that path and started I. Guess It's been. Twenty five years now and that sort of what took me to this place? Yeah, I got it. So tell me how do we approach talking to teens about sex when a lot of parents are feeling that they don't have the information themselves that it's still taboo and shameful I mean. There are a lot of really great resources out there I think part of it is there's just so much information and so much about sexuality that you really have to know where to find them and I think that a sex positive approaches we all strive for like we all want to raise our. Kids to be good people of positive enriching relationships yet romantic as well as sexual ones and so I think it really is twofold I. The information is out there find the medically accurate information from credible resources and showed that with your kid in developmentally appropriate ways and you're educating yourself along the way it is. Okay. no-one taught us this you know either so we are pioneers and you know if you can talk to your friends and say you know I, don't really know how to do this. How are you doing this and source each other to create a sense of solidarity typically as? Parents you know we we tend to lady to do this together. Especially if our kids are younger, we do that really well as they get older teenagers tend to want their independence and we tend to not have as many opportunities to connect with each other but we should find those places where you can connect with each other. You know test the waters and see how open and comfortable those folks artist say like, how do we do this? How can we communicate consistent messages that aligned with our own personal family values, but also give kids the information they need to keep themselves in their friends safe. And with your kids in those conversations, you're really it's the value of these small victories are collecting moments your scaffolding this over time it's not one big giant talk. It's little ones over longer periods of time and it's OK. In fact, it's a tremendous gift to be able to say to your kid to role model healthy vulnerability in an effort to connect in an authentic way. To say I don't know, but this is really important and sometimes the most important conversations are the hardest ones to have, and so let's find out this information together and figure this out in a way that works with all the things we've been teaching all along. Now for some parents, kids suddenly start screaming I'm running from the room you know whatever it is I, don't want do. Don't learn. They might happen to have equality health program. It's one. Nelson say but I I I know everything I need to know don't worry about it. Learning learn it in school. The thing is, is that parents are absolutely the primary sexuality educator in life It can't be they're not the only one that they're certainly the primary one and your the consistent person that they are going to be connected to throughout their life, and so those people who teach them you know education relationship, education, educational those things they're gonNA, come and go. They'll have an impact. It's a huge blessing to have that resource. But really you're the consistent will run and their ethical aspects to sex education that like those family values that are essential to it only you can teach those to your kid. So parenting adults are really important in that role.
Angela Chen: Asexuality Is Pretty Complex and That's OK
"The book you do a really incredible job of giving the as sexuality. One one that doesn't necessary without dumbing down or oversimplifying thing I think for me my biggest takeaway sounds obvious in hindsight. Biggest takeaway is how many different ways there are to be a sexual and I hate to say it. But I did not know that it was this umbrella term that encompasses such a broad range of experiences you find a that is a common misconception. It is so common and you know there's part of me that's leg come on everyone it's been a while like we should be caught up. There's this other part of me that is so so synthetic and I. Think. Some of it has to do with language right because a sexual it's not a word someone made up. You know people already have associations with it. So it's just not intuitive that you would call someone who maybe has positive sexual experiences a sexual, right? Just semantic level people are like, what does that mean? So I totally understand why people would not understand. It's an umbrella term would not intuitively know that there's such diverse range of experiences under that but also. I feel like it is time for us to be having that conversation and moving away from about one image of asexuality even for people who think they know what it means they think it means like, Oh, you just don't like sexy repulsed by sex, but it's so much more than that. That's such a great point before reading the book I would've told you that asexual people do not have any desire for sex or romantic relationships and that is the case for. Some, but in no means the entire community. Do you mind just giving us the definition that like we should be thinking of for a sexuality? Absolutely. So the official definition is a sexuality means you don't experience sexual attraction which seems simple enough right but then you have to be like, okay what is sexual attraction and most people think it means, oh, you just are repulsed by Sax you don't WanNa have sex, but sexual attraction is not the only reason to have. Sachs. Example I always use which I, don't love as metaphor, but it was just a food better for it. There's foods that you love and you're attracted to quote unquote there's food repulsed by and there are some food that like they taste fine. But because you associate them with like your best friends in college in like that social senior, there's like an emotional reason while I won't speak for you. I'm an emotional eater, right? So I feel like there's all these wants is there to make it really simple. It's possible to not experience sexual attraction without being repulsed by SAX to be basically sex in different but because there's so many other reasons to have sachs. Emotional reasons like you might be bored or you really love someone or you want to feel attractive desired sexy that can hide for many people donate sexuality, and that's all of these nuances and all of these complexities I think for many people maclear community we first began to discover and understand our sexual orientation through sexual attraction. Only to oversimplify right I'm sexually attracted to men I must be gay without that component. Can you talk about how you spurious attraction and like what you base those feelings on? That something that's really complicated. So one thing with sexuality is that in some ways de orientation is based on what you don't experience. So then you have to kind of explain what is it? You don't, which is beard philosophical question rape. So for me like when I feel attracted someone this romantic sense, it's basically like having a crush on them right like I want to date them like I could see as being romantic partners and I even have an. Aesthetic type you know I always say like do not get me wrong. I have a type it's not like everyone looks the same to me. Some people are hot. Some people are less heart don't get me wrong but there's not like a sexual motivation for it and I think that can be really really hard for people to feel out and understand can be so many nuances and also want to make clear that being a sexual is not the same as. Being a romantic because Saxon. Romance aren't the same right I think most people would agree so many people sexual and they are say Hetero matic or their pan romantic or by romantic, and there are some people who is actual are a romantic thing that they just don't expand traumatic attraction to others the of course, they might love their friends at their family very much. It's so interesting compared to non x people to have to come out of the closet because. We can discuss our sexuality talking about the broader terms, dating relationships, and yet you coming out as half discuss sex sex has to be in the conversation. Does that pose challenges like say parents when you don't want to talk about sex with them? Yeah absolutely. So the funny thing is my parents just don't know the book is about it's funny because if you Google my name like books and come up with into second jewel, it'll stay on the jacket copy. You know in her own experience as actual journalists but I'm just not out to my parents in part because it just it really feels like I'd be talking to them about my sex life in a way that I don't think it would be the case if I were is actual or vice actual for example, and I've talked to other aces about it and they've said the same thing where it feels almost more inappropriate you know like they kind of A. Conservative not hyper conservative but a little bit of a conservative workplace and it feels like if I were to talk about my sexuality, it just seems much. It is not done. There you the way it might be okay to talk about other orientations, right? Because like marriage equality passed for many reasons. But one of them is because we reframed it to be about love and relationships we moved away from sex but for asexuality we don't actually have that option did. It take a while for you to become comfortable with that label for yourself absolutely, and I think in many ways I still feel I still feel some ambivalence about it. You know I like talking to other aces other people the crew community because I feel like I can be more honest. You know there are people who still say sexuality doesn't exist you're just repressed or maybe there's something physically medically wrong with you and because there's so many naysayers of course. There is this pressure to dig your heels in and be like not only my actual I love the sexual twenty, four seven. It's the best thing in the world because you don't want to give them any room to invalidate you right and so I think when I'm with people who are queer or who are as there's more, there's great things about it, and in some ways I've internalized some anti sentiment and sometimes I feel about it. So it's a long process.
The ECBs Former Vice-President Explains The Historic Step That Europe Just Took
"True CEOS thinking we don't really talk that much about Europe these days. I mean, I guess not in relation to the the heady days of the eurozone debt crisis. Now we don't, but also I feel like this particular crisis at least some of our episodes, you know, obviously, we talk a lot in the bed context the US context, of course, know talked about Hong Kong and Asia and Asia supply chains in China and so forth stills like we've focused a little bit less on how this current crisis is playing out in the Europe. Yeah I think that's right I. Guess the implication is that maybe this has been unfair in some respects because there has actually been something very interesting going on in Europe at the moment. Yeah. I mean, for one thing you know there's a good argument to be made Europe at least relative to the US, if not necessarily Asian countries has done a pretty decent job overall of suppressing the virus self and you know for years during the euro area crisis, they're always people fiscal policy. Fiscal Policy Missing. You gotta spend more gotTa get the Germans to spend more and you know maybe this time it looks like they're actually doing. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. So we have the announcement of a big deal seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros worth by the EU to fund on long term recovery. Fund for the Eurozone and that's a big deal because as you point out, everyone's been talking about fiscal stimulus but it looks like the euro-zone is finally going ahead and doing it. Right and so this of course raises questions and it's a theme that we've definitely had a lot on on our podcast, which is, is this offer something bigger for the post-crisis period? So sports, it's well known that know there's a lot of money being spent by governments all around the world including the US. But the question mark is okay when the crisis phase is over the government's just retrench or does this become a sort of new macroeconomic stabilization model? That's a theme that we've had dozens of times but it's particularly important to New York, in context I think because people have sort of identified the lack of fiscal burden sharing his sort of a basic architectural tension or flaw within. Euros. Yeah I think that's exactly right. How does the I don't want to say the intrusion of fiscal stimulus but how does the arrival of fiscal stimulus on the scene actually reshape the way that monetary policy works and I? Guess we should also mention that the is also in the midst of a of another really important project which is rethinking. How it targets inflation. So we have all of this going on simultaneously real existential questions for the role of the European Central Bank. Absolutely well, I'm very excited. We have a fantastic guest to talk about all of this we are going to be talking with Vito comes don. So he is the former vice president of the European Central Bank from two thousand, Ten may twenty eighteen. He's now a professor at Navarra University in Madrid out the perfect guest to discuss all this. So without further ado, let's bring him in a veto. Thank you very much for joining us. So are you happy to not being a policymaker in this time or you? Do Miss being at the ECB during such an extraordinary moment. Well, it's always difficult to get out of you know executive responsibilities and I. Of course, I would not say that I, am Epi at the out or unfortunate circumstances of the covy. The shock we are again in a very important periods of policy making but. Me Europe as been doing well I think in these episodes. Better than in the previous episode of two, thousand. Ten to two thousand twelve. Just to start out with walking the significance of the deal that was agreed, this seven, hundred, hundred, billion euros you tweeted about it clearly, you think it's important. What's the significance. Well it establishes for president that are very meaningful. In, the first place it involves a decision to issue common European depth. The Commission will issue seven hundred and fifty billion of debt to fund these program, and that's the first. The second the point is that these is going to be distributed in the form of budget transfers and not loans to the country's. Third IT'S A big program to implement Wat- is a European fiscal policy stimulus to address a recessionary phase. India to be an economy, and that's also the first time that these happens at this level and fourth the distribution of the ballot transfers which. Correspond to a little more than half of the seven hundred and fifty billion is done in a way that it is not proportional to the size of each country. By two indeed benefits more the countries that's have lower level of leaving and higher unemployment. So there is a convergence play. There is solidarity aspect of these edits also quite new in terms of transfers to give you two examples on a proportional basis, Italy would be entitled to fifty billion, but the they are getting eighty billion. Right as Germany, you'll be entitled to ninety six billion in proportional terms, but is getting only twenty seven. So these four points put together constitute the indeed very important precedents and babs, and do we all hope so that it will be a sign of things to happen. If again, there will be a stressful situation in the European economy, and that's a very important element for everyone the notion that when there is a very stressful social economic situation Europe, steps up and two x decisions to fight the recession and does not leave behind any of the member countries. It's a big message for the future and I think markets are really beginning to injury injuries what these means And we see that already but it will take time of course, perhaps for the markets by Geico anglo-saxon markets to overcome. Lingering, doubts about the European project.

The Horned Helm
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and Joe. McCormick and today. We're doing the horned helm. This is going to be one of our essentially one of our invention themed episodes, but I decided. You know we really need to come back to armor, and the best place to start with armor is really the helmet I think the helmet is one of these wonderful things to consider because on the one hand, there is the more sort of combat, centric and medieval. And even fantasy idea of a Hillman Sifi. Fantastic with the concept, but at a very basic level, I feel like we all have some experience wearing a helmet taking this bit of artificial exoskeleton, slipping it over our own skull, and then enjoying its protection. Do you remember the scene in cone heads? Where it? It is revealed that Dan. Ackroyd Cohen Head Bell Dr Enjoys driving a motorcycle, but he's not a fan of helmet laws. No I. Don't remember this. Does he have a? A weird helmet or he just he can't wear human humans. I would imagine that's the source of his frustration. Because seems seems like bell. Dr Is actually normally pretty much rule follower, but but yeah he doesn't like the helmets, and I think it's probably because he has to get one custom made man. I haven't seen that in forever, but I do remember it had a really fun. Stop Motion Monster towards the end. Yes, yes. Bell Dr Scott to fight one with his Gulf skills. It also has a great line that for some reason is is just used for all occasions around our house, which is your phone is too young. Well, you know I. Don't remember if they wore helmets in that at all the more like space centric cone heads, but I feel like there was some sort of a horned crown that one of the more yeah I think. That's right so one of the we're. We're going to be discussing helmets in general, but but one thing that we're also going to discuss. Here is the idea of the horned helm a helmet with horns on it. It's it's an ancient motif in human civilization, and it ties into some earliest ceremonial practices. Practices and models of imaginative thinking. There's also do something so elegant about the idea thing that may be worn upon the head, and in doing so transforms the individual from a mere human into something, symbolically different a hybrid of human embiid. He's channeling the archaic chaotic gods of the Hunt. Oh Yeah I mean it's very therapy. It's what you see in those ancient cave paintings that so exciting when you start to see the human and the animal forms join together, suggesting fantastical thinking it's clearly there in the horned helmet as well. And and and so when you see these ancient motifs, one example that I was looking at before we came in here today. Was Robert Familiar with the the Sutton? Hoo Helmet? Oh, yes, yes, the sudden new helmet I. Had Papa Picture of it, but I this is one of these that I remember from an early age seeing perhaps on the cover of National Geographic, but it was certainly featured in some sort of Historical Book that I had access to his a kid. Yeah, it's just spectacularly creepy with these hollow is the way the mustaches rendered on the the plate of the face covering. I think it also had leather component when it was actually worn, but it's this decorated Anglo. Saxon helmet from I think it was from the seventh century. was buried in this in this ship burial somewhere in east. Anglia and I've actually seen this up close. And there are replicas of it that are really cool, because they reproduce the artwork that would have been originally visible on the sides, and although it's got all these panels over it, basically, it's a helmet covered with like comic strips, and in all the little panels there are scenes depicted in. In one of them shows these figures will like human shaped figures with horns, apparently wearing some kind of horned helmet. Oh, also evidence of Hornet helmets on a helmet. Yes, wonderful, yes, but it doesn't necessarily show the the characters wearing horned helmets say going into battle it appears to have more kind of a ritual religious significance surrounding the horns. Yes, in in this seems to be basically underlying the earliest versions of of this you know horned helmets go back thousands of years as far back as a twelfth century. See we see this in Cyprus Bronze Age Europe. and. The generally the idea is that yeah, this probably has its origins in in against symbolic tinkling thinking and ritual, and the idea that you're transforming. You're becoming something else. Which of course has a role in combat as well in a row and intimidation sort of role in the basic? behavior of making yourself look larger than you are. But, but then there's also this. Imaginative. Side to it there is this ritual aspect of mill, melting, man, and beast,
"NAMA. Stay in welcome. It's really a pleasure to have you with me here again. For another one of our sheltering in love talks and together listening with others from around the world as you know one of the words that we hear again and again in describing. Our current times is the word uncertainty. We're going to be spending some time with this word. It's uncertainty around our bodily safety. An uncertainty around the future of our finances and uncertainty over when and how will ever spend real personal time with our our dear ones uncertainty in terms of our our government whether those who are able to vote in the United States will actually be allowed to many many levels and of course while a lot of people are in. Denial there's that deep shared uncertainty. We have really about the future of life on this precious planet. So it's big it's the undercurrent that's now not only an undercurrent but in the foreground of so many people's experience the truth is that life is always uncertain. That's the bottom line by nature. Everything changes economies coming and governments change and stars get worn die in these very bodies you know do the age they sick and they die. We lose all that we love. It's always uncertain. And yet our daily habits uncovered over so we get lulled into thinking. Okay so this is how it is and then inevitably. Our daily habits get disrupted home. There's an accident tar. Sickness are some long term relationship crashes or some upheaval regarding work or maybe on the societal level. There's the outrage or heartbreak of another publicized. Racist Kelly are a mass shooting. Are Right now this pandemic and they're here we are the bottom falls out and for some time. We can't avoid reality. Life's out of our hands out of control it's uncertain and we feel it and our bodies feel it feels very vulnerable. We have an inner controller that does not like insecurity uncertainty so in reaction when we're stressed our inner controller becomes what. I've often called an over controller. And I know you know what I'm talking about. You probably know your own over controller when the mind gets narrowed fixated and obsessive and always trying to figure things out fixings and then when we in our over controller were also blaming others are trying to control others but were mostly mentally caught in the state of fearful anticipation. The word worry the Anglo Saxon roots are strangle so we get caught in the over controller. And of course our body goes along for the ride when we're in our over controller muscles tighten. Our shoulders might go up or billy titans which of course effects digestion. 'cause we have all that tightness in our body we also can get fatigued the over controllers exhausting and then the heart murmur in our over controller the heart either numb or anxious. And so we're not so porous and able to to give and receive love so what I'd like to explore tonight is to reflect on on facing uncertainty and by that I mean both the glaring unknowns of current time sued also just that that ongoing background anxiety. We have about change about loss that that's always here so our inquiry really is. How do we let go of our resistance to uncertainty and that tensing we have against not knowing that tenting against change and I wanNA say right from the start? That opening to the reality of uncertainty doesn't mean passivity in any way it means we open and come into the kind of presence that actually lets US respond to uncertain times with a lot more balanced and wisdom and with a steady heart given that as we know uncertainty activates our brain and we get caught up in it for many of in session thinking and it's kind of mode were trying to figure things out or just trying to find some certainty.
"saxon" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"Today saying it begs the question. What rosters would look like. Do you think that that teams who have thirty thirty-five maybe just carry a forty man roster into a season because it's not only pitchers? Let's just say you're in Arizona and it's one hundred and ten degrees and you're not getting days often you're playing doubleheaders. I mean that's GonNa wear some guys out so I'm really curious about the roster construction of what baseball would look like If and when we come back yeah I mean first of all you brought up one of the great kind hurdles to playing a season in Arizona. Summer I've I've been in those stadiums in late March where it's almost unplayable cannot imagine June and July if you had to play a day because you know for whatever reason maybe they wouldn't maybe all the games would be at six but it's pretty darn hot still at six the Sun. Go down remember. Tell if that time of year until seven thirty or eight eight thirty. So it's it's it's tough to think about that. But Yeah I think he would have to expand their to some extent Which is again is going to lead to that sort of raggedy -ness of the game because we're gonNA be seeing so many pitching changes etc but again these are mile minor complaints and by the end of the season. These guys will be ready and I also I would kind of dismiss this notion of wealthy only one hundred days. It's going to have an asterisk after it if you angry exert yeah. Nobody's GonNa give a bleep about that in ten years or even the minute it happens you know how much joy that's going to bring somebody. The braves fans aren't apologizing for the nineteen ninety five World Series. Neither as any other team. That's been in a strange season so I think we can put that one to rest. I totally agree. You you mentioned Dylan. Carlson what what do you think the cardinals would do with a guy like Carlson as it pertains to serve his time shortened season or expanded rosters. It's an interesting case. I think when you think about a guy like Dylan Carlson. Yeah I mean I think it was clear that he was SORTA angling for triple eight. Start the season right that that you could kind of just read playing time. What was happening in spring training? I think the writing was on the wall about that. Now will it change? My suspicion is probably not I just think the preference is to give the older outfielders first crack at it because those guys are very much maker brake parts of their career. Tyler. O.`Neil has a lot of tools. I mean I think they wanna see what he can do with you know a a week two weeks three weeks of uninterrupted at bats. You know what does that look like? And so that's the case dealing. Carlson would start at triple A. But really cares. I mean if this guy is as good as we all you know. Probably think he is. He's GonNa make a deep deep impact on this organization and be one of the major building blocks and I think you know whether they manipulate the service time or whatever reasoning is I think he has plenty of time to impact the season if he comes up to three weeks into the season so for me I think people get a little bit locked in on the opening day roster and especially with the player whose trajectory is that that good potentially i. I just think that's a mistake. I think. Just enjoy it when it gets here and why not bring them up when he's feeling good and hitting triple eight pitching really well again and feeling good about himself. That seems to make sense to me. So Mark Saxon is a baseball writer. There's no baseball going on. And the athletic has done a great job covering this story from all angles. So what are some of the stories that you're working on and trying to make sure you know you're informing the public in and trying to keep it as interesting as you can. Yes I mean if anytime there's news I try to be all over it. There hasn't been a lot of news especially with this team so we have a slack channel at the Athletic Slack. I guess for people don't know is kind of like texting but it sort of within the company and there's all these different channels for a guy like US fifty years old. It's hard to keep track of but anyway one of the channels is called. Let's get weird and some of the ideas that have come out of that. One of them was. Let's support our local businesses. Let's show that we care about our communities so one of the things we did was calling a bunch of cardinals people and asking them their the restaurant that means the most to that and why it means most so that's an example of that We did the best cardinal player ever to wear a uniform number from double zero up to ninety nine and I know you know ninety nine with yes sir and it wasn't Wayne Gretzky. No and he. He didn't have a lot of competitions. That's bud the nice thing now and then we are a subscription based service. The Nice thing now. There's ninety day free trial so if people are kinda curious but when it just dip their toe in the water or see what it's all about they can do that and read all these stories and decide if they want to pay for it beyond that. I think it's about six or seven bucks a month. So that will you know that most people who can read some stuff end up liking it and subscribing but either way take free free Pass at it right now. Decide if it's your cup of tea so my final question at the athletic. What are you working on right now? GimMe a story. You want to dive into well. We're actually working on a fan survey right now.
