"Two 15. I'm Sean Anderson. And I'm Shana stillen, thank you for being with us. Colon cancer is increasingly being found in younger people in a new report from the American Cancer Society now shows that one in 5 people being diagnosed are younger than 55 and the cases are being detected at more advanced stages. However, if found early, many times it can be treated. One of our colleagues here at WTO was diagnosed when he was only 36 years old. Well, heck, I know the exact dates. November 9th, it was the Thursday, 2006. That was when WTO producer Mike Jakarta found out after a colonoscopy that he had stage one colon cancer. His symptoms were blood in his stool and fatigue. He admitted at first with the symptoms he thought. Me being the typical guy. Man, I'm not going to go to the doctor and just work out harder, but his wife made him go to the doctor, and it was discovered and treated. He's among those under 55 to get the illness. He encourages you to get your screenings. And get a colonoscopy. I mean, if you're at the age, just do it. Doctor Joseph Jennings, a gastroenterologist with med star health says during colonoscopies, polyps that can turn into cancer can be spotted early. And if we find them then and we take them out, not only do you not have colon cancer is great, we actually stop those polyps from ever having the chance to turn into colon cancer. For Jakarta's now almost 17 years cancer free. I feel like I've been given a second shot and I'm really lucky. Mike Murillo WTO news. March is colon cancer awareness month and it includes dress in blue Friday. That's tomorrow, which honors those impacted by the illness. Hey, here's something your college bound kids may want to keep in mind

"What about you? What are you looking for when you read a review of a book? You know, I think I'm looking for is this person aware of their own biases? Oh, that's a good one, yeah. Like, how self reflective are they? Because for me, when I review, I'm always thinking about my own position in the world. And how does that impact how I'm responding to this book? And I feel a lot of responsibility to what I imagine or all of my books siblings out there who share some slice of similarity with me and they want to know David you're a fat person, is there going to be fat shaming in this book that might go over the head of a thin reviewer, but I will feel like a knife in my gut. And I will tell you that, you know, so that's what I look for in reviews. So I really love the reviews. Even if it's just like, I know half the reason I love this book is because I miss traveling during the pandemic and it made me feel like I was in this other country. I want to know who you are and why that you love this book. And so any review that either positive or negative it doesn't explain that, I do not trust. Because I don't know if we are similar enough or if you understand like me and who I am as a reader that you will read the book and understand it the way that I will, which is why Amanda is always right and the good reads reviewers are always wrong. There's nothing I love hearing more than I'm right. I will say. The reviews that I read, first of all, I will pretty much only trust a majority of reviews from people that I trust. Because goodreads can be a cesspool. What? Yeah. So moderated corporate owned arm of a retailer? Yes. With a number of different schemes for extortion and number of different ways to game the rating system. You get that's not a general system you trust. Wow. What's the world coming to? No. I know. You can't even trust. Good reads. So I put a lot of weight into books that are recommended to me by my fellow book reading friends or not recommended to me very fellow book reading Friends. You know, I work with a bookseller named Audrey, who I have said is the best bookseller I have ever met in my entire life. She is a tornado of a woman. That's for sure. But if she tells me, man, I read that book at the library and it's garbage and you would hate it. Say no more. Audrey doesn't have to tell me why. I trust Audrey and Audrey like knows me and knows what I like to read. So that's like the first kind of barrier of entry is like, do I know you and do you know me in terms of trust that source, right? Yeah, do I trust that source? And that's a very small pool of people. Most of the reviewers here, there's not really an exception, but I just know that some of us read different things . So what some person loves isn't necessarily going to be for me. Oh, yeah. I have email that says Sarah, I love everything you hate. Keep up the good work. It's like maybe this is like the cynical part of me. But I no book is perfect, right? So I'm automatically suspicious if a book has an a grade. I feel like a squee grade is different than an a grade. No, it's definitely different. You're right. Yeah, it's like, I loved this book. You know, for me, it was just a joyful experience. It may not be perfect, but it made me feel so good. Yeah, squeeze a objectivity is not here. There is no objective criticism here. This is just rainbow cannon, take cover here it comes. But for a perfect grade no matter what grading system, a site is using, I'm automatically, I guess, like, on the defensive. I was like, there's no way. There's just no way. This book is without flaw. So I feel like I'm more trusting of like a B plus or an a minus than I am of an a grade. You know, no piece of media will be for everyone, but I think it's helpful to inform people about whether that piece of media will be for them or not. That's definitely right. Similar to the questions I ask myself when I'm writing the review is like, who will like this? Because I always think someone will, even if I hated it. Yeah. If two things are generally true, one, that romance is a space in which we are entrusting our emotions and our empathy as readers and the larger context of what is happening around romance is important, then any breakdown in that trust is important. And it is essential, I think, when you're dealing with, especially right now, when you're dealing with people who really need the solace of a happy story, the context in which that story is taking place is very important. And what happens in that story is important. Shana, any last comments about reviews or book you want to tell us about that you absolutely squeege over? Well, I would just say my last thoughts are that I looked at my notes for one of my last reviews in preparation for this interview because when I do reviews, I take notes throughout the whole thing, which is basically just like, if I were texting Sarah, while reading it, which I won't do because there has a life. My notes are. I am a spit water all over my microphone. And Sarah does not have a life, what are you talking about? Even though most of my notes do not make it to the review, I just want to say they're really hilarious to me. I'm hilarious. Reready them. If that hero isn't in so like, why is there so much like dick wavy and happening in the book? Everything is bullshit. There's no context of my notes. It's just like, this was bullshit. I'm like, I want to what's happening then. But I wrote that down. I don't know. So I highly recommend doing that if you were going to write reviews because it will entertain you later when you go back and look at things. You look at your highlights, you're like, what is this? That's why there's a number of conversational reviews that happen on the site, which I love because reading someone else's conversation about a book they've both read can be extremely illuminating. It's not quite the same tone and voice as someone reviewing knowing that that reviewer is essentially talking to you the reader. You're actually reading the transcript of what people are saying to each other. But I like both types because y'all are hilarious. Amanda, what about you any last thoughts.

"And it was just so beautiful, the idea of a lot to say about it now. It was just like wonderful and I loved everything about it. But I just couldn't decide what to say other than you should read it. But you might not like it. I'm not sure why I liked it. Well, one thing that we get a lot of, and I know, I'm guilty of this and I'm sure Sara is tos like you read a book and you realize, this is the right book at the right moment for me. And, you know, it's comforting, but it's like, how is that a review? You know what I mean? I think that ties into you love a book so much because it ticks all the boxes in like your current present place and time, but that isn't going to be the case for everyone who picks up that book based on your review. So I think that the balance of loving something but also still being critical can be hard, and sometimes you don't want to be critical. You just want to enjoy the book because it made you feel good things. I think for me, the hardest reviews to write are the ones that are like, it was a book. There are some letters on some pages. Some stuff happened. Do I remember it? Not quite. I finished it. You can't really say it was bad but you can't really say it was good. Like, those middle of the road books are for me the hardest man reviews are the hardest. Yeah, those were some words. Okay. Okay. I think that was even your advice. You gave me as a new reviewer and because I think my very first review was like a C book. This is so hard. It is. The C ones are so hard. They are. Because it's like not egregiously bad, but it's not like, oh my God, you have to read this book right now. And it's like, how much can you keep going in that circle of like, it was okay. Here's why it was okay. It exists. Yeah, it probably not. Should you pick it up? I guess. Like if you want. When Adam was in college, there was a classic rock radio station and one of their promos was this may not be your favorite song, but it has a lot of the same notes. And then I would play a different song. And I feel that way about a lot of books. All right, this is a perfectly serviceable example of this trope. It was there. Yeah, it didn't blow my socks off, and it was technically proficient, but, you know, I wasn't like super excited or super disappointed. I was there, and that's very hard to articulate. I think what gets tricky is when you are trying to both articulate your opinion and then also decipher why you have that opinion. Do you have this opinion of this book because it was the perfect book for you at this moment and it did exactly what you needed to do and for that you are deeply grateful and appreciative even though if you look at it objectively, there are flaws. Or do you have complete inability to be neutral or objective about this book in any regard because you absolutely adored it or because it just offended you to your core. And either way, those are hard positions to explain because if you're Shayna, if you are so over the top in love with a book and it just did everything, sometimes I know that when I'm having that experience, it will start to diminish if I start to try to deploy a critical thinking about it. And I just, I just want the sparkly fluffy gloriousness. I don't want to think too hard about the technicalities. Because they're like, okay, well, yeah, there was that one character who's story didn't get resolved. And one thing I've seen a lot of lately, total aside, I've seen a lot of the conflict being based on I have shitty boundaries. Maybe I will get some, which I can not rate it makes me instantly frustrated. I have no patience. And also conflict that dissolves instead of resolves. Like, we have a conflict, wait, apparently we don't anymore. I have decided, I don't care about this problem. Happy, we're after. And sometimes those two things are present or one of them is present, and I'm really enjoying it and I know them and I start to look at it critically. The bubble will burst and the fantasy will dissolve, and I'll be like, but I just wanted to enjoy my book. My brain sometimes does not help. I mean, that's how I feel about any even if I pick up a book just to read and I don't plan to review. It's like, can I turn that critical part of my brain off and just simply read the fucking book Amanda? I can not just read it and don't think too hard and just kind of like, but no, I think that reviewer part of your brain usually tries to sneak in there. And I'm like, please, please don't. Please stop. Before you log down here, I was telling Sarah that I was up till four a.m. reading the duke I tempted by Scarlett peckham. Yeah, I love that. Which I think I read half of it in one sitting. I looked on my Kindle at like midnight and maybe I'll read something for a minute and then four hours later. I'm loving it, but there's still parts of my brain that are being nitpicky about the pacing so that I feel like that's one thing I struggle with in terms of preserving those good book feelings is like to turn off that critical thinking part of my brain. Yeah, sometimes I can be very resentful of the decision I made to review a book. Like very angry at past me 'cause it's not like, you know, Sarah made me do it. Amanda was like, you must read this book. I chose. No, we don't assign. We let you choose. A good example was the wife and the attic that Jane Eyre retailing. I was reading it. I was just like, God, I love this. I love everything about it. It is just like ringing through me and then oh no, I have to pay attention to things that might not be perfect. I don't want to. Like, I'm throwing a tensor tantrum while reading the book. Like, no. I love you. Don't make me do it. Don't like me acknowledge any flaws, it will ruin the joy. But it's just like Shane had talking to herself in avira. Yeah, so. Shane. My other problem is that when a book has been claimed for review and I want to read it, I'll read it, and sometimes I'm like, damn it, I have many words and no place to put them. Or it completely completely diminishes my motivation and curiosity because I know that I edit the review. So one thing that people who are listening may not know is that every review is edited by me. Like all reviews go through me before they go to the site. So I tend to take it extra personally when something is wrong because I'm like, damn it, I messed up on that one. So all the reviews go through me. Most of the content that is review a critical goes through me. And I know I'm going to read a review of the book. So I either have to hurry up or just accept that I'm going to be reading a review of the book. And that might also color whether or not I want to read it, which is what a good review does. The whole point of a review for the site in most cases is to help a reader make a decision as to whether or not they want to read that book. Whether it's an investment of time or money or both, we want to help people make informed decisions, especially when, like I said, since romances are about emotions, informed decisions sometimes means warning people when something harmful or hurtful might be waiting around the corner. I think back to what you're.
"Yeah. He's behind you. There he is. He's making biscuits. In real life. Yeah, this never happens, Shana. I hope you know that. You can ask Sarah. He never does this. Linus doesn't like me the minute we start talking. He's out. He leaves. All right, so Tara's question is, what are the processes you go through when you review a book? How do you choose which books to review? What questions do you ask yourself? What makes you want to throw a book across the room, et cetera? I love this question. And then Leslie had a follow-up. Leslie says may add to this, of course, let's see. You may. What is the breakdown of what the site is looking for in a review? The reason I follow interest smoker is specifically in a way that I trust basically. No other romance landia site is because as an almost strictly historical romance reader who falls further on the left side of the political spectrum than the vast majority of other historical romance readers with whom she interacts and there are a lot. Is because I can depend on the site to point out issues of consent, not just in sex in relationships, racism, homophobia, anti semitism, et cetera, but also to discuss the overall shape of the plot characters, et cetera without feeling overly summary forward or super theoretical. My point is the reviews here are really good balance on a number of levels despite being written by a wide variety of reviewers and I'm wondering if there are guidelines if it's something you look for in our viewers. So on and so on. Thank you. Linus is already gone by the way. This is like, yeah, you're talking, I gotta go. Lotus Linus's review of this podcast is, I'm leaving. But thank you, Leslie for the compliments. I do work really hard to make those things true, and it really means a lot to me that you noticed. So thank you. That makes my entire week probably longer than that, especially because today is typically the day I do editorial and these are all things that are on the top of my brain. Shayna, I would really love to start with you with Tara and Leslie's questions. What do you do when you go when you decide to review a book? How do you choose what to review? And what do you ask yourself when you're doing a review? Well, I feel like it's probably the same process that I go through when I just choose a book to read. It's just it's a book that I like. And probably about half the time I'm deciding to review a book because I love the blurb. Maybe it's using the trope a little bit differently, it might have succeeded or failed at doing that, but if that's usually why I choose. And then half the time I don't plan to read a book or I plan to review a book, and I'm just in the middle of reading it, and I think, oh my God, I have to talk to everybody about this. And a good example of that is that hot Facebook. Very hot. Which was such a good review, by the way. Really? Thorough review. And it's hard to write a review and you're like, I have lots to say. I had a lot to say about that. I think the final review was like, even one 8th of the things that I could have said. But at some point you can't actually write a book about the book. Sometimes you can't write a book about the book. I don't know. Some people have done it. I have done it. I have done I have done, I have written a book about many books. I wrote books about all the books. But I totally. It's true. It was covers right there. I have very much found myself writing a book about a book before. Oh yeah. And it's like when you get going and all of a sudden your brain sort of organizes all the things you have to say, and it's like and another thing. And one more thing and just let me tell you this other part you're not going to believe this. That definitely happens to me. So what questions do you ask yourself when you review Amanda? Oh, boy. I will say these days, I know bout of a book pretty quickly. I give it about 50 pages. And if it's not grabbing me, it's out. And then, you know, there's always the back and forth of like, do I keep reading this terrible book for the sake of reviewing it so other people know about it or do I save myself? The pain and agony. But like Shane has said, I pick up a book because of interest me. Like, why would I want to review? So this has happened with no offense to Courtney Milan. But the duke who didn't came out, and I was going to review it. And halfway through, I realized, I really don't like a friends to lovers sort of set up. That is not a jam. No, and I realized this book is not for me. Like it's fine, but I don't think I could have given it a fair shake because this trope is already not my bag. So I asked Catherine if she would review it. And of course, she did. And it was her jam. But yeah, I tried to mainly stick with books that I know appealed to me like character wise standing wise, trope wise, because if I don't, then I feel as if the review is already starting off. On the wrong foot, if I'm just picking up a book that I don't really, so I don't read a lot of historical romance. So why would I force myself? To read one when they usually don't interest me. So definitely interest is a big part of what I pick up. Yeah, it's hard to write to write a review from the perspective of this is not my jam. And this is yet another example of why this is not my jam. Like, okay, well, as a reader, reading that review, how is that useful? Yeah, 'cause most readers who don't review books for a job or whatever are only gonna pick up books that sound good to them. Right. And there's a third classification, which I'll get to in a minute. But it is very difficult, I think, to start writing a review of a book from the perspective of this is not the thing I like and this is yet another example of why I don't like it. Now, unless that particular example is doing something extraordinary in a positive or negative or in some other way. There has to be a reason I think the underlying reason that you've written the review in the first place. And I think one thing that has happened over the years of so many things being reviewed on the Internet is that you can almost very quickly tell sometimes exactly what the motivation was. And sometimes it's not. I read this book and I want to tell you about it. It's some other thing. Like I'm having a bad day and this is I'm putting my bad feelings on this review of this vacuum cleaner. Like, okay, you had a bad day. And the vacuum didn't help. I got it. I see exactly what you mean. What makes it complicated with romance is that because they're about feelings and they're because they're meant to inspire emotions. People get emotional about them. That's completely part of the package. I mean, that's just part of what happens, right? Yeah. Shana, what about you? Well, the big reason I was thinking that I wouldn't review a book is actually usually because I loved it too much. So sometimes I read a book and it's a hot take Shayna. Sometimes it's just like I just overwhelmed with my feelings kind of like you were just saying there. So I just loved it so much. I'm like, incoherent. I just have nothing to say, but I could never do without beautiful. And that wouldn't be a very interesting review. I read last night at the telegraph club, which is this way. Yeah. Lesbian historical novel set in like the 50s, I think. And Chinatown in San Francisco..

"As you know because i just said so like black history right and i tell you like. That's that's not really a great hobby to knicks with romance. it turns out because every five seconds. You're like okay but the reason you got to get into that nice bath at three in the morning and you were like. Oh my god. That guy was so generous. Premier hot bath at three. Am is because an eleven year. Old girl had to wake up and haul buckets of water basement and then nobody wants to me anymore. That's why i think. I have been shifting in the direction. Contemporary romance where. It's at least easier to know the horrible things up front and i can make decisions about whether reading the were not. I also like space in the future set romances. Because there's always an element of oh thank goodness that survived and that other thing didn't like in murder bought Pan relationships and multi partner marriages are just like normal. He's in a three way married. She's got seven kids like you know that's that's not even remarkable. It's just how many sometimes just reasons is a six. sometimes it's one whatever it doesn't matter But at the same time the general ineptitude of humanity to adjust to things that are different remains quite difficult well but some humans are able to adjust.

I loved it and you know just knowing about the white shirt. Covers was priceless. And i and i just really enjoyed that one so i wanted to make sure they wanna mention it in how you know talking about. People who take risks cheap took a lot of them especially early in her career so it was fun. It was a really really fun podcast. I was so nervous minor. Thirteen year old was not cool. She was very stressed about that. I mean there were a couple of interviews this this year where i sat down to do them and there was a party going okay. She's preschool. i don't blame you. I wouldn't be able to get word out. Just talk please. Biggest fan girl. America love it. It was such a delight. And i loved some of her answers like not only to how much she hated those. Those chesty shirt cranston of the covers but also she's like well. I'm older and i'm tired. And it's easier for me to keep writing about the same family rather than invent a whole new one. So i'm sticking with these people that's what you guys are gonna have to deal with it. Twenty that's fine wisconsin for days. Don't care works for me. Thanks mary all good. I love doing that interview. I was so nervous. Oh my goodness. But i'm really glad that you liked it. I hope that was when they would would make you happy with you. Were you on a veto call with her voice over the phone no it was actually zoom but by phone will even. If it's audio. I prefer just to imagine that you're in person so right now.

"Make that up. Does this have to be accurate. You're you're supposed to be accurate. That's another thing. Is that a lot of times. It's hard to figure out what's accurate and and you also have to be careful about. This is another thing restored. For god's sake cut me off not talk for hours. You have to be careful about queer erasure and other kinds of Issues the biggest client rate. You also have to be careful about using modern language and concepts to describe somebody who wouldn't have thought about things that way themselves so trying to find that balance can be surprisingly challenging in way that i didn't expect until i got much more into Queer history and there's not one answer to a lot of times right about people who dressed as men fight as soldiers. None of them would describe themselves as transgender because that was not a word but some of them most of their adult life presenting male. And so i would assume probably. They were what we currently think of as transgender. Either people only presented his male during the time of the war that they wanted to fight it and then back to presenting as female staffer for them. They may not have thought of themselves as male at all. They may have simply been doing something that was pragmatic for them at the hot so trying to represent people. It's honestly as i can and bringing things to light about them. That i think needs to be brought to light. I don't run it contributes quiry sure but also helping people understand that the whole way that we think about things. It's just very difficult to impose on other people and not always appropriate to impose another people. That's big struggle and then also a lot of people are really kick ass in admirable in one way but not in another way or they were superkick. Ask but not on the right side. I mean that data has to be careful about. I think about a lot so yeah. There's a human right yeah. It certainly has helped me a lot enormous now and i feel really privileged to get to have that learning process. I like i like is idea. I think i think you should do people who you might consider famous but not everyone would know about them. That's selfish for me. Because i really rarely read nonfiction. I like nonfiction articles and i just think it's very rare that a book should be a book and not an article so i want you to read the books and distilled them into a key post about these people for a couple of hours. I have gotten in trouble at home. Just i've gotten kind of snobby. 'cause by now i might well knowing so is actually you know who similar notes. This of mirrored the science nerd. I lived with no other kinds of narrates. Yeah that i'm mike right about so and so everyone knows sue. So and so is. Everybody doesn't who's don't assume that. Did you find your question care. This is for both shayna end. Claudia how has reading helped you this year and if there were times when it was difficult to read what else was helpful to you in terms of both mental health and just encouraging who wants to go i claudius. She will be on this lot. Oh goodness is a really tough year to save release right. Oh is i did a lottery. Retiring there were times that i think i mentioned it before like i i. It was a situation that it was not the book but me. I just wasn't in a good game of landon. I gave up the book. Or a kim than read the epa rogue or. You know something like that and so it was strange because reading is so much part of what i do. When one of my f- you want one of the few things that that i consider. You know something ed. Do regularly and enjoy regularly in able to do it regularly in there were times. He wasn't there for me so that was really unsettling. There were times dead to see. No the only thing was sleep. You know putting one foot in front of the other keep going. Don't think too much you know what's next. So the the comfort reads were good and when dad wasn't available just mindless you know. Tv watching baking things of that nature. How about you shayna. I think you. I also had trouble reading at points especially earlier in the pandemic. I remember just watching hours and hours of television like that was high was gonna filling the days. I think it lot like burst lockdown. Particularly and i did do a lot of rewatching so it's funny because i was so skeptical reading but i did so much. We're watching we watch vicar of dibley for the third time and i want to hold onto british mystery shows. I think i might have reached vera multiple times as well. Just because i can't handle police shows that are based in the. Us they just make me really upset but something about a british crime shows just really works for me. And they're a little bit longer and yet just all. The dynamics of them particularly. I think the backup. They don't usually have guns really helps make them bill. Us violent cyberfraud shetland oak and then of course. I did a lot of knitting. So i learned to knit this year and that was really exciting and i met a lot and then what i really want shetland. I had fun naming the stitches that i saw in the sweaters and my wife was buried tolerance of that. Especially when like. There's a couple of minutes where they go to bear. I'll and i started screaming. Their real place not just letter. Yeah i was real cute. So that's how. I had no idea so i highly re suggest watching set lead for dinners and it just really made me appreciate the cost you work. That wouldn't you communicate things about the characters based on the sweaters. Were wearing like the people who were outsiders would be wearing these like non shetland style sweaters like also wakey from london. That's how you knew they didn't belong there so it was very adorable but i actually recent months. I've really gotten back into reading. Which is weird. I feel like as some house. Things got worse in the pandemic. I actually found it easier to read. I think earlier on. When i was just kind of anxiously anticipating beings getting bad the anxiety made it hard to read like once it was clear are really bad then. I actually started reading more and be more ruthless. I think my selections to where it really within one page. I'm done so i have so many Diaz on my list this year. I.
"A way. That is terrified. Me talk about it. You know they had now this out and that was like okay like them like homer kerry. What is your question for the group is. Where did i put a piece of paper on. Which i wrote the question. Well this is a good question. You watch start there. I have a lot of pieces of paper. None of them have the question on it and they did about two minutes ago. Can we do to cloudy question combat. Yes of course. Okay so. I did two separate questions. When for sheena curie okay for shayna so you and i always laugh about the shayna stars in how you have a great rating system or or i considered a great rating system. Where i'm completely you know. Whatever whatever the mood strikes me. And i don't keep good track with things. So can you go over. What makes What makes a book a five-star for you Well i would just saving. I feel like you're not being nice enough to yourself. I think that you have a strategy to. It's not haphazard. You're just a nice kind person. And i am someone who is mean and that is why give lower scores to book and you always have like such thoughtful reasons for why that book deserve to five. I'm listening to reasons. Why pay cash. An awful person gave up looking to. Even though i agree with you cloudy. We'll see what we say. go ahead. Sorry ed jimmy to interrupt in. I hope eric biz. I was gonna say that you're not mean but that's okay i can tell me. Well i think. Five stars. For we as oprah i grew like three stars is maybe like five claudia stars because three stars for me is. It was a good book. I liked it. M n four is. I loved it and then spy really is i loved it. Plus it was like so beautiful like trenton and rocked my world. I really any book. Written by kay jemison butler pretty much hits five stars and so you have to really meet that standard for the righty. Let's not to set. Like i loved you but like this was a life changing experience so i just little stingy with those but sometimes romance novels are great and they totally meat fat. The ladies the ladies guide to suss joel mechanics mechanics. Yes yeah that was a five starbuck for me. I can't be nice every once in a while. all right. what's your what's your question question for. Carry carry as you as you know. I'm a big fan of your kick ass women in history. So i wanted to know a little bit more about your process how you find a women to profile in what goes into your decision making in sorry quick you know addendum would be. Which one was your favorite so far this year. Okay well i'll do the last flight. I which is i recently finished reading a woman of no importance which is a nonfiction about virginia. Hall was a spy or the french resistance in world. War two france and She went by lots of different. Co names but klaus barbie. May he burn in. Hell referred to her as that went being canadian bitch. She was not canadian. That was like the only nationality that she wasn't quite. She called her wedding because she only had one lake. And despite only having one late she did on this revolutionary stuff without being caught including but not limited to hiking over pure And so she is currently my favorites and I do not aspire to be during like her. But i do went a and so i take a certain comfort deal like you know like. That's that's like you know if if somebody calls you that like that's that's that's a term of honor there. I really love that We talked about her in my library but club and we felt that she was probably not a very easy question to hang out with. But that is because in the immortal words of tina fey and amy poehler is done and she got so much stuff done. She was amazing. She has my current babe as far as process. So i've tried to go about a month ahead in one kind of recurrent problem i have is that i try to plan a lot of my smart stuff way far ahead and then sometimes that doesn't really jibe with like what else is happening. But i try to have to kind of have you know. Something in the pipeline. All the time sticks longtime. I wanted to be representative in lots of different ways. So i'm always kind of running in my head right like did i do to white people in row it. I do chew academics or two soldiers or toot. there's lots of ways we kick ass right somewhat. I to represent lots of different ways to kick us And i so that's the biggest part is just trying to make it your friend and i have a bunch of books that are like compendiums of kick ass women that honestly usually by now stuff just pops up like in my writing or whatever. Sometimes people me suggestions. And i'm always happy to have the suggestions and people should note. Don't get to this. Suggestion is often. Because you know it's it's too close to something else. They just trying to shake it up. Never say my biggest challenge is trying to He bit diversified and and trying to identify the areas where it's not diversified in lots of different ways and. I don't think i do have been tastic job of that. I think i do a pretty good job. I think there's a lot of room for improvement. I need like make a chart and our coded or something. But i'm not a natural chart. Color coder person. So i'll have to release down and nail out. Does that make sense. Does that answer. Your question does. And it's amazing. I had no idea. I mean i knew it was. You know a laborious. You know thing that you did. Indeed you put a lot of thought into it but i. i didn't realize how much in and makes even makes me even more appreciative of it. Won't you the other guys might be kind of transparent about it. I never intentionally committed plagiarism. But sometimes i'm writing about something where there's not a lot about them and there's only so many different ways to white. This person was born on this date in died in this state right so that is always an serious kind of nodding because then transparent with her that i don't wanna like just plagiarize in article or plagiarize with a pedia. It's shocking how easy it is to do it and not realize you're doing it you know it's not intentional. By all of a sudden you will get you. Relations wrote almost exactly. What's in the article. Because that's what you're trying to convey the giant to make sure that i include my sources trying to make sure that i am rephrasing things in a way that is not listed trying to make sure i highlight people who are really obscure like i try to avoid people who all everyone already knows about this. Why don't write about like. I don't know actually i think i did write about the children and madame jury but you know a joan of arc. Right everyone knows about jean burke. So won't you aecom about joan of arc but then there's the double bind in that. Is that the more obscure you get. The less there is to pull from and the harder it is to make it a regional. So that is something. I'm always aware of always struggling with really hope by an okay job with it's kind of scary About already famous people. You should just write about less famous things that they did. I if you wanna talk about a surprise queers. I'm always happy to read about. Of course chris just make like joan of arc queer. Actually just.
"From other parts of the country are like she made that up. No no hang out. The underground tunnels do the tower young yet. I did tour i did. I took my sister which visited amazing. That's that's making. i like it. The end with people use details. Not so much like they're just name dropping but as an inventive part of the organic part of the story. That that makes it. You'll really grounded. I think a lot of my favorite books about california have compartmentalize the different parts of the state. So like jasmine gelinas books that are buried either southern california or northern california focused and. I don't know there's really a rivalry but you really get a sense of the culture. Even the tacos are important. Both like san francisco so tiny in his solar in units fifty square miles january. Twenty minutes away. Has you know so was a very different experience. I was straight to. The roommate has an interesting Part in she doesn't drive and she moved to la. And that's a big part of the you know the middle part of the book and she boroughs his car in. She's driving the freeway in that really experienced it. It's funny 'cause. I don't know that hardly ever i don't go on a freeway drive much not well not now but even when we are going places so i don't have that many good examples of of book set in california but i i agree with kerry has to give me. Some sense has to get the details right. What about looks at our set in san francisco. 'cause that's almost like a whole other genre. I thought of a couple but it was just you know. San francisco's beck around. Basically there was nothing there that made it any different than anybody any other place. I can't think of anything. Sentencing cisco except for full house right into old-timey like raymond chandler. Books that that is but no. Yeah if i if. I send you guys like this. Houston san francisco books is that like endearingly nerdy or is that just really irritated very in deering santa away and i did plane by the way the the novels makes you don't kill the messenger by eileen dollar g. and claire watkins Has a novel called gold fame. Sa- trysts in. That's the one where the last fast yun is. Needles california stubborn people with and near san francisco book for you. That was on my list of books that kind of helped me get through twenty twenty. Was that book. I make a copy boy which takes place in depression era sacramento and san francisco. And that's one by shelley waiting strap so there's one there's going to be in california next for kerry. I think i had to do. Oh i had to get saying for the library. Once on climate change literature at in california and then i also had the i also know by two authors and stuff so that just like i had to do a lot of things. Thank for being our nerd. Oh i can't shaded you have an answer for your question I was gonna say the book. I just read if the boot fits rebecca weatherspoon. I felt like that has a lot of what. I've a quarter and calvin book. Well i like food. And then also making fun of californian food like the juice bar kind of culture like a character who needs everything to be like organic and my raw and like on the key to diet or something And there's a whole part of is outside of the city and a ranch. And i feel like a lot of the city or allow. The state is actually like farmland and like worl- but a lot of the books are set in cities as though that part of the state doesn't exist so i really liked that part. The cowboys keep black cowboys. Owner horses like out in nature. I don't know how realistic that is. But i enjoyed reading it. And i would like it to be the california eleven. So that's why like now you serious. He may just have to like mutiny. Because like i too much. But when i was a kid we used to go hang out in annual valley which is right on the other side of the sierras from where sacramento is and and i would go wake up really early in the morning We stayed in this tiny little motel like five people would ever stated and i would go for walks along the highway which i forgot the name of but a lot of times early in the morning i would see actual cowboys with their little dogs on their courses. You know. I mean the cowboys. Run the worst in the little dogs. Like tunnel and always really lucky. That i saw that. Because i don't know that something that's gonna last forever or not. I can tell you that as a many many many many years ago. That was a thing in valley. I used to see them. Go hang out with the truckers. The little diner and they would give the truckers copy in the. Give me a cup of hot cocoa with extra whipped cream. And i was like this tiny little person so i like things about california that also point out that california's like multiple different countries at once liberal. And it's not all talk talking. Listen the regional stops don't believe you about the taco. i was thank. You lost me there with the tacos taco. Do you read me. Beverly jenkins series. Has it took place at the setting and california. They foundation california at steph me on my list. Oh my gosh The destiny trilogy. In the first one the heroin leaves philadelphia and accept a mail order bride offer from a person who is in pre statehood california and a lot of the history of the founding of california is in the book. And it's so interesting. Didn't we be destiny's captive. Yeah yeah acidy surrender. Destiny's captive and then destiny the ladies higher. But i don't remember which one that is l. Carrie ann i read. Yes lady pirate on you know. Author should have done their research like When their inventive. I love it so there is a book. I've got the name of it. And frankly that's okay because the book wasn't very good. But i gave it a full extra grade level because it had one scene where the big earthquake hit san diego while a woman and everybody is okay right in and her toddler driving over the coronado bridge when the earthquake hits and the bridge cracks. And i've been over that ridge flagship times and it's wreaking terrifying. And i had to give the book the entire extra grade level because it gave me sexual Canucks you did your.
"Thing to do. I think well. And i think that there is a certain obsessive quality to that was not healthy but having said that i think that there is a pragmatic thing that does not need to be tied to obsession. Inequity is just normal. I'll have to do no matter where we live. Have about three days worth of emergency supplies in you know. We're all your import documents are. That's that's dislike right. It's always been like need to have those things in order a some of the emotional baggage rabbit. It may became a few more too many fortune books. And i read a lot of horror but the kind of horror where people are resilient victorious at the end of the rate. How can i now say what the horror is. 'cause i'll have swelled up but i reviewed it all smart features so yeah books about resilience which you know going back to the this book. That's hard jury. 'cause there's so much love it's also so powerful in terms of that missed you know. Resilience are reclaiming and reforming. I really you didn't that this year. I get it. I've been reading mix of fiction and nonfiction too. I totally understand claudia. What about you. What have you. What has what has gotten you through two thousand twenty. Is this going to sound strange. Because i'm going to highlight a book that reading january before you know things got really dire apparent. That was still twenty twenty. Yes but thank. God bless i checked. It is but it just didn't feel like you're right because twenty twenty was defined so much by the pandemic so to me. It really is years started in march in. I'm hoping it will end sometime. Twenty twenty one but it's going to be longer arrayed than then just twelve months that we've been through so so the first one was delivered. I laughed and the other one is the one that i just read leg four weeks ago or three weeks ago ten things. I hate about the duke by laureate cheese in it. I bless you think they have nothing in common. But i think the unifying team for me is dead. Well both are very funny and also more than anything. I think those books to riders really took risks. And i've been reflecting dizzy. Something that i've been thinking about is how hard to find a writer that really takes risks and goes out of their comfort zone. This days right. So i think this was also a year that for me was defined getting out of my comfort zone. A little bit I stayed within romance but read different so generous which was nice in. Of course. I did the rereading that a lot of us did but going to different little nieces. Romance was really uplifting in really interesting to me as well wait. What are the different subjects. She started really. Did you finally start reading about alien sex. I want to read a lot of fantasy but not alien fantasy. Always twenty twenty one. Whenever yes. i'll be ready for it. I yeah a lot of fantasy romance which is sort of like historical romance adjacent it. Think so not entirely out of my comfort zone but like baby steps. I read a couple of good contemporary romance as well. And you and i discussed a couple of them so that was also fun but now work-in-progress. Sheena what is your question for the group while my question is about california because we are all californians. Sarah's and honor californian do that was that good that was really impressing. I'm wondering what you look for in a book. That is set in california. What lots of fire fire on screen not realistically. How realistic would be depressing. Your sunscreen tacos hiking. Yeah oh and what talking. I feel like it's the only thing on your list. I would actually. How did we make sarah in california nine this i. I'm not. I'm not convinced by. The people can't see us that when she said dude. Was that good chain. Is like so supportive of sweet. She's nodding happen. Carrie i like a book to get the details right. I like it when he get so You know in in parable of this over by octavia butler. Reach fits sarah's category of having fired what else does i don't remember any you know it's this dopey because there's no tacos that that's how you know but they these people do this distract long. I can't remember now. This is five or ninety nine the the but the the group that i read in california we all recognised like every rest stop. That was mentioned. You know we knew what that was like in. There's a really good book which i apologize now. Forgot the name of it may be still google of someone else's talking which is another dystopia about california and i don't need the to dystopia. This is coincidence. But like the last bastion holding the line against the drought you know covered with sand. The town won't leave is needles california an open source. It would be needles california. Obviously so i feel like when when they get. It doesn't have to be like every sentence is about you know and then we stop at the starbucks on eastern That specific i want the details to make sense. I deeply proble. The sewer has the suburbs. Like as its location is kinda my memory and so. They're kind of like barricaded themselves. In their suburban houses that feels very californian and times of dystopia. Potentally totally so it starts off like this little gated community that now gated communities are like us little kind of fortunate communities and it just feels very like will yes. of course. that's what would happen. Yes obviously i you know. I've read a of of of light of books. That are you know my a friend of mine renault. She has a series of paranormal. That takes place in sacramento california with and so we she talks about the underground tunnels oil. Sacramento like might. Oh yeah. that's real thing. I've been there where. I'm sure other people.

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown
"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families. Alison despite everything. Shana Tova.
Israel to go in to second national lockdown
"Israel will become one of the first countries to impose second nationwide lockdown due to the pandemic but lockdown is slated to last three weeks and will restrict residents from going more than five hundred meters from their homes. Schools will be closed and gatherings will be limited to ten people indoors or twenty people. There's four months ago Israel emerged from its first lockdown which critics say. Was Too soon and contributed to a rise in cases over the summer months Israel now has one of the worst per capita infection rates in the world lockdown will go into effect on Friday which also happens to be the eve of Russia. Shana the Jewish New Year and will extend through Yom Kippur following the announcement and ultra-orthodox member of Netanyahu's cabinet resigned saying that officials delayed the Lockdown so that it would limit people's ability to gather for the holidays. Instead of taking these measures earlier Israel's buyer says, the holiday timing will do less economic damage and prevent large family gatherings that could spread the
"We'll take our first steps through the crumbling remains of Letchworth after this. The architecture of Letchworth village was meant to evoke Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

The young patients tend to the fields and animals on worked as serpents in their caregivers homes. Others were given vocational training in carpentry welding and shoe repair.

Bad things happen to the children who left their rooms at night. Shoshana didn't move. She prayed watching be entity pillow until her eyelids grew heavy waiting for emily to return. But by the time, her eyes closed the sheet still lay vacant in the dark. As always the children were roused before for chores. Shoshana was somehow relieved define emily's large is inches from her own she woke. Emily was holding a small cloth doll your hands Je Shana asked if it was from home, shook her head slowly. She said she had found it just sean a told you to put it back. Emily said our jaw firmly. To shot at tried to remind herself that emily didn't know yet. She didn't know everyone would try to take it from her how rare it was to have something to hold onto. Maybe, Shauna was being overly cautious. The doll wasn't much to look at anyways it was smeared with. Blood. One of its is had been torn off the clock had faded to a urine yellow maybe summit at thrown it away. Emily dragged the Dow behind her as she worked with Shoshana in the doctor's house, his family had everything. They weren't allowed to have soft sheets fluffy beds nice. Clothes. When she entered the building in the morning, she couldn't help feeling like emily's new doll broke in and out of place. At bed check to Shana watched as emily carefully hid the dollar under her bed. She made been new but even she knew the attendance stole everything. Shoshana. Rubbed at the fading bruises on her arms. Bruises, the same attendance had given her. It was inevitable that emily would get treated the same at some point. But just sean would protector as long as she could. China won't once again to Emily's big brown is the little girl was terribly dirty aside from the pristinely new dress she was wearing emily insisted that she had found it but just Shana narrowed her is she needed to know the truth she couldn't protect her if she didn't know who emily was stealing from. Emily hesitated. Shoshana. Pulled the dress off her and stood up using the extra three inches. She had over emily for extra intimidation. Emily signed and took Shawna's hand. She wouldn't tell Shauna. Could show her. The two girls snuck out of the dormitory avoiding the night attendance emily letter toward the woods for a small hand into Shawna's large one. The off-duty workers were so much louder out in the open where there are no walls to drown out the sounds. She could hear their argument in full now followed by the sound of a fist hitting skin.

This money but chosen mate was well back to really the market phoned the right horses. All MOANING CHOSEN. Mayton us in them. Were horses that that that the other everyone tracking they were getting a lot a lot of attention. I know that in the morning you could have got nine to one. Third Chosen May and by the time the races off he was just just below five to one us and then was just below ten to one himself and another exceptional handicap performance for Gordon Elliott chosen. May He looks absolutely get up for this race. It was again another one that had been running incredibly well behind voices and this was a very very good victory. I think granite eighteen. Who BEEN LONGTIME ANTI POST FAVOURITE FOR PAUL? Nicholls wasn't quite. I don't know again. It was a bad day for political team. None of his horses really Brown. Well this on the best of all of them but they they kind of changed his tactics a bit and he was rather little bit more is positioned up with the pace more than and being being held up and he was always going well but it wasn't going to be the him but again. The Irish is showing dominance in handicaps and a brilliant victory for I think it was a I think. A big syndicate chose mate was at the northern racing partnership and and Yeah tallied upper a great great wheat for Gordon Elliott. Who the day on the morning. I think he had six wins and he was on six wins six seconds and three thirds and Willie Marlins was on three wins. Five seconds and five thirds somehow managed. Lose where he was one point six to be talked trainer. I don't know but amazing. Really really mullins cheers and better. Yeah another another top. Handicap spoke ordinary. I'll tell you how he lost seekers. Great White Shark third bosses. Oscar was unlucky not to get closer. But I'm delighted finish fifth because that went plays mony and he would've got it had it not been for parole qualifier horrible full. Oh Gordon but dramatic stuff and I do remember. It was like old school tv where Nick is handed a piece of paper. It was like something from watching like old school. Reruns of nineteen seventeen news broadcasts. Thanks thanks very much with that update because they were locked together as you said it was. It was amazing why Bez was held up in the rear great field. I have no idea because that doesn't suit him at all. But Hey Sean Joe is trying something different. Jodi mcgarvy keeping the ride Gordon wins again. Jane another huge success for for him. Presumably the approach from the British handicapper. Next year will be every Gordon handicapper. It goes up twenty pounds brilliant right by Davy Russell I had cut their scars in my selections and I wasn't all not comfortable watching the race. I was wondering were we going is as good as Davies. Body language suggested we were and he made couple of mistakes on the mound never panicked he ultimately put me at ease watching him I always once know you have debut Rossler Barry or you know Richard Johnson on your soy. Been you're instantly. Put at ease and no offense to Shana Keith or JJ seven but been of growing up watching the on the big day and he sold rarely gets it wrong. And this was a tactic. Good Brilliance from him I think most Ryan is part of the syndicate and they got great satisfaction from day. Celebrations would have been huge. I'd say the government the closing down and as a great seal being held up. Aki Job better than he usually does so. He didn't travel with fluency that he has done. When he raises from the front put he jumped a lot better than he can Paloma blue biggest parliament for me. I am not making any more excuses for the horse I think he has an implement ability but he wins someday and I won't be on Off and then it of bridesmaid isn't he? He's run second to their Eastbourne couple times in grade ones and now he's been third at Jutland hearings massive race again. Joseph O'Brien but ultimately that is David Ostlund chosen may stolen show horses connections and he's giving them some great days but you're right he's a bridesmaid. And Hey look we did. All right we did find in terms of our handicaps. I'll happily take place. Thank you very much on a bonkers week and the bunkers week would end with a twenty five so one Wynonna First Cheltenham Festival. Success for Paul Weber. Would Philip Hobbs. Who's we could have been saved and a brilliant ride from Ben Jones. As well ultimately a short head stops them from getting a victory in behind on mcinerney giving. Willie mullins great white shark a fantastic ride And Gordon Elliott's the bosses Oscar running a stormer. I thought I stayed on really really strongly in the Martin.
