The Rise of Leon Trotsky & Communism
"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with
UN: Wildfires getting worse globally, governments unprepared
"A new report warns that global warming will lead to more wild fires in the US and around the world but most governments are ill prepared to handle the problem researchers say uncontrollable and devastating wildfires are becoming an expected seasonal event in many parts of the world including the western U. S. eastern Australia northern Siberia and central India their report for the United Nations finds a worsening cycle climate change brings more drought and higher temperatures which makes it easier for fires to start and then those fires release more carbon into the air that affects the environment and people's health experts say many nations are devoting more time and money on fighting fires then prevention the US announced a fifty billion dollar effort to reduce wildfire risk but is only devoted a fraction of the funding I am Jackie Quinn
Lucinda From Moink Shares Her Story
"Her? You may already know her as the woman behind a company that I'm excited about. It's called moo plus oink equals moin. Do you get it? Box dot com lucinda. Welcome to the program. Well, thank you for having me, Eric. Well, now where do you come from? Well, I come from a small town called Lebel, and Missouri. In Missouri. They call it Missouri. I know it's Missouri. I mean, I know that you're not close to an airport if you pronounce it Missouri. You're a real missourian. Right? Something like that. Come on. So your story because I want my audience to get to know you and the whole story. But tell us the short version just to start of what is morning and moik box and the family farm. And just give us that. And then we're going to get into the backstory. Yeah, sure. Well, I'm an 8th generation farmer. 8th generation farmer. You don't look that old. How's that possible? Right. Thank you. You're an 8th generation farmer. Yes. Can you tell us how far that goes back? What year are we talking about? Well, since they came over and actually they came through New York than Virginia. And then they end up in Kentucky. But you don't even know when this is. I know in the early 1800s, we moved from Kentucky to Missouri, which is why I sound the way I was. But I was saying, but if I were part of an 8th generation something, I would give you dates. I give you the day of the week that we came over. I mean, 8th generation is so far back by American standards. I'm wondering if you didn't come across the land bridge, the Bering strait language from Siberia because we're talking way, way, way back. Okay, but so you are now, you're it. You're the 8th generation. Yes, so I was born raised and still hail from a town of 600 people. And so I grew up on a family farm, obviously. And when I was 11, my father died and my mother was left with 6 mouths to feed in a farm she couldn't afford. I know that seems crazy that she would have land everywhere and we would go hungry, but it's kind of like that water water everywhere and nothing to eat. And not a drop to drink. Yeah, nothing. What is that from Alvin? Coleridge? The ancient Mariner. And by the way, who cares? Go ahead. So anyway, didn't make sense to me. So I really made it when I grew up. I felt like it was my life mission to help family farmers be independent outside of big egg to be able to make a living to have an honest day's pay for an honest day's wage.
"siberia" Discussed on In Defense of Plants Podcast
"Polyploid palm grains and just these genome duplicated completely Frankenstein gametes. And so these grains would have unequal chromosome numbers and then they would also be malformed. Two. Oh boy, I mean, yeah, you hear about a Chernobyl. You hear about mass volcanic eruptions heavy metal pollution in the air and even down to UV radiation. I mean, these are alarming sort of what gets all of us should be like, oh, crap, what? But then you hear something like that where anomalous freezing, cooling. I mean, things that aren't necessarily like on surface value that toxic or scary, but still having these effects and when you think of like the variability we're introducing into our systems every time we're pumping another couple 100,000 tons of CO2 into the air or methane and just the ways we create disturbance on the landscape. I mean, that's super that's a huge red flag. And so when you think of what you set out to do in the scope of inference that you thought you had. And then to hear something like this where you're connecting threads that happen back in the 60s. You know what I mean? This isn't like you're on the pulse of like a 2022 new paper just came out of Siberia kind of thing. I mean, this has got to be one of those things where you're like, oh, we've uncovered something that is widely applicable. And then the question becomes, which stress do you want to look at? Yeah. Bingo. It's really that and that's a whole opens a huge can of worms. And really we're hoping that there will be some more some more studies out that can sort of look at these other stresses. For sure. And that's the kind of point of this kind of baseline work, right? It's easy to be like, yeah, we just don't have it so we got it. But then it's that door opening experience. So what do you kind of envision this work? What are the next steps? Because that's a big part of any research is like future work, should include. And I can imagine what you've just unlocked in your head as someone that really enjoys this and spends time geeking out about this stuff is just, oh my God, what have we just done? Yeah, I sometimes am kicking myself because again, they always say that you open up more questions than you answer when you're going about in science and that's certainly true of any experiment or study. I would say that this one opened up a whole realm of boy. There's a lot of different stresses that need to be looked at. And I would say some of I guess if I were to prioritize, I would say probably acid rain and heavy metal pollution are the two next sort of biggies that need to be looked at because there really are really hot topic and they're really popular to publish on right now in extinctions. Believe it or not. Again, popularity in science really kind of drives the forage of where everything goes. And so usually before things go far in a direction where people are saying, well, we already know that this is what probably happened. You want to be able to go not so fast. Because that could be something. So there are papers coming out there saying, oh, we're seeing heavy metal induced malformations and spores. So I'm like, wow, how do you know? Because first of all, this is a like pod and being one of the few people who can grow these in the world. I know you haven't actually looked at it. So tell me, it's all sorts of things where and I don't mean to be catty in that. No, no, no, I get it. You know, you end up again sort of the buggy or the carriage in front of the horse. And I find myself being in that sort of maybe not so desirable position to be like, hold on a second. And that was part of this study actually ended up really in the weeds was I started looking down everywhere I would present on this. I would get the question of, okay, so we've got polyploid grains. We've got genome duplications going on. So if we're seeing these malformations, doesn't this mean that we're having this massive proliferation of polyploid evolution, plants are just duplicating their genomes and they're the ones that survive because polyploids are better. And I'm just like, that's kind of a simplistic view of the world. But at the same time, it's a good question because and it's fair because yes, many times a lot of these malformations do correspond with what we see in genome duplications, big grains and larger increases in size in spores and pollen can actually be used to infer sometimes genomes or at least maybe not genome, but actually the chromosome complement or the size of chromosome there. So that was something that I definitely wanted to address in this. And that was sort of one of the first things I started with was hearing that that was what people were asking about is it sort of gives you an idea of where the pulse of scientific thinking in the field is. And I'm lucky that I had opportunities to sort of present this work a couple of times and get that feedback because that I got to think about it a few months and really looked at the literature, but it turns out, in this case, that doesn't seem to be quite as plausible of what's going on. And that ended up being because of a number of things and one of them was, well, if we're talking about there's a lot of hypotheses saying that polyploids do well under stress because many times if you have more genetic sort of genes to play with or copies, you can do better. But it doesn't always work that way in extinction. And it's pretty dang random who does well in a mass extinction who doesn't. It doesn't make a lot of sense. And so one of the things that I was looking at was that with a lot of these times we see these malformations, the trees that are making them are not necessarily dead or dying, but they're receding. They're becoming less and less common. They're on their way out as they start kicking out these mutations. So what that suggests and I could be wrong and maybe I will be and that would be exciting if I am. Is that it seems that the forests are really deep, deep trouble when these things show up. And from our previous research, we found that it even before the trees actually start feeling the stress enough to produce these pollen grains. They're already sterile. So by the time you actually, so our lowest end Permian sort of volcanic emissions, ozone weakening scenarios. The trees were sterilized. And they were producing what looked like normal pollen. But it wasn't until you ramped up the radiation dosage that you started seeing the malformations kick in. So that was creepy because when you do see things popping up, then you do wonder how bad was it back then? I mean, to see, again, what we were talking about that time transgressive and that space transgressive nature of the fossil record, the fact that you are getting a frequency that's spiking up noticeably across possibly huge time spans, they must be pretty common..

"Being olympian. And i'd rather be on the side of history of the people fighting for their freedom than no on my on my own side. Try to find personal. Glory winter at the top swimmer from myanmar speaking there with the world patrick win about his decision to not compete at the olympic games in tokyo. North and south korea are speaking again according to reuters today. The two nations are in talks to reopen a joint liaison office that north korea demolished last year. They also reportedly hoped to hold a summit between the leaders of the two nations part of a wider effort to restore relations joining me. Now is jenny town. She's a senior fellow at the simpson center and director of their thirty eight north program. What's your reaction to these developments. Jenin how do you explain the timing. Well i do think anytime we can reopen. Communications channels is a good thing being able to have lines of communication to be able to try and avoid any kind of miss communications mishaps especially in flash points like the dmz. I think you know if it plays well into president moon and condemned guns broader inter-korean peace regime campaign for north korea. Is this just a friendly overture. Does this attempt to reopen communication with south korea suggests some domestic desperation in the north could be mollified with diplomacy. I think that's yet to be seen. I think both of those possibilities are real that there may be some willingness to cooperate especially on humanitarian assistance. Going forward from what. I understand that the situation in north korea is getting. There's a lot of hardship going on now because of the prolonged Or lockdowns so you know. It's hard to get import foodstuffs as well as import inputs like fertilisers stuff to help the crops in This year's crop will matter more than it has in past years so without a mind. We've seen south korean. President moon jae in go down this path of trying to bring all the sides together a similar narrative now or is this different president moon is likely to try again to bring all the parties together in to try and get both. Us dprk in inter-korean relations back on track. I don't know that. That's necessarily the intention of the north koreans in trying to resume some level of talks with the south koreans. But i think president moon does also need to be very careful this time around in managing expectations of what's coming next because it is a political cycle right now with the south korean presidential elections early next year so building up high expectations. That things are going to move very quickly in a positive direction can work against him. If it doesn't work out can work against his party so trying. to build. Too high of expectations on inter-korean relations could be politically damaging to his party. If it doesn't work out looking back to president clinton in the nineteen nineties one white house administration after another have said that the us has to deal with north korean so they can get rid of their nuclear program. Do you have any greater confidence journey. This time under biden. It's going to work certainly not going to be easy. will require as well as concessions on the us side. What is the us willing to do to change north korea's strategic calculus. We oftentimes think too much about north korea as an exception like that. It's odd that they wouldn't want to have better relations with the us that they should be willing to give up their nuclear program to have better relations with the us. But i think you have to ask yourself what causes any country that has nuclear weapons to voluntarily. Relinquish that program. And so. I think until we really solve the broader security situation any administration is going to have a very difficult time trying to incentivize the north koreans to give up their nuclear program.

Here's a novel idea. Make a mess you pay for it. That's a message state of maine ascending to large companies. This month stay passed a law that makes companies pay for the packaging waste. They create nearly a dozen states are on track to follow suit. It's a new idea here in the us but not in europe. Scott casella works on this. He's the ceo and founder of the product stewardship institute in boston so scott. Let's start just to our north inmate. And what exactly does this. New law require companies to do what you hope the outcome is going to be. In essence it requires producers to take raiders on ability for products on the packaging that they put onto the marketplace so from a very basic level. There is a shifting costs from the municipalities and the tax payers are to the producers who put these products onto the marketplace. So for example. The company ships out a tiny widget in giant box. In that company's product is sold in maine what consequences with a company face they will be charged for the material and then there will be extra charges or materials that have extra costs for the recycling system so for example if it is a plastic that has very few markets. They're going to be paying more to put that onto the marketplace. If they put less packaging to the market i if they have refillable containers usable containers or highly recyclable containers. They're actually gonna pay a lot less for those materials. Nearly every country in the european union has a similar law to the one just passing main. What has been the impact on the amount of recycling and waste there. Well there's been a great evolution over the years. I nine hundred ninety four. They started with a european-wide directives. Over time there's been a number of different iterations of that directive that have increased collection in cycling targets overtime incentives to change the design of packaging editors even gone into reducing the environmental and social impacts on nine eu countries where some of this packaging material is processed in the united states. Where at an average rate of thirty two percent across the country for packaging recycling really all the participating countries that ask these types of programs reach at sixty percent with many reaching seventy eighty percent in the one individual after call out. I was your team gordon. Who's the managing director of an organization called expo. They manage or oversee all of the european nonprofit organizations that implement these programs. We've seen a number of countries either limit or stop altogether receiving any recycled trash from the us. Because a lot of it is not recyclable. China did that not long ago. Is that trend. Also driving laws like the one main past absolutely the restriction of our recyclables being accepted in china has definitely catapulted this to the toddler political because the cost of increased so significantly for municipalities many municipalities around. The country had to cut back on what they're electing or some of. You can stop their programs altogether. Scott i'm here. Is your kim. Your contact mentor in. Germany has helped you in your work in the us. So what was his reaction. When he learned you had succeeded with his lawn main media email and he said. Is this really true exclamation anything with real because he and i were going back and forth on this for very long time and Europe his started this program in one thousand nine hundred ninety with german program and here just getting to it in twenty twenty one sky. Cosell's the ceo and founder of the product stewardship institute here in boston. Thanks very much good. thanks for having. We'll be right back. You're listening to the world.

Who qualify for tokyo. But he's not there win at who refuses to compete under a flag. That in his words is steeped in my people's blood. Six months ago the military in myanmar staged a coup and since then security forces have killed nearly a thousand civilians and locked up. Thousands more and more is military also took control of its national olympic committee. So athletes need. The blessing of the junta to compete in the games went at youth. Spoke about all this with the world. Southeast asia correspondent patrick. Win win at you. How long have you dreamed of going to the olympics. So i've started something when i was around. Six years. old always dreamt about attending the olympics representing memoir as a summer. It's pretty much been a dream of mine for the last two decades and i've been working towards it fulltime since two thousand sixteen trying to get to tokyo so the coup happened this year ending roughly ten year run of more freedoms more free elections. I know you are based in australia. But how did that affect you. Hit my a hit me and my family very very hard for the last few years. We've been very optimistic. We've been hopeful. I guess we are blinded by hope to believe that we would be democracy. We've became so far and a younger generations especially only new freedoms even though compared to most democracies that was very limited so hit myself pretty hard. You know just knowing that memory just went back years. The country's once again from back in control of the military if the military controls everything even the olympic committee you will never compete in the olympics. Is that right. yeah i. I would only attend the olympic games under an olympic and that the of memoir are proud of and can control. And until. that's the case. I think all me and my assets should not participating in any major international sporting tournaments myanmar under the military did send two athletes to tokyo this year. A woman named tech tattoos are who plays badminton and a pistol shooter. Yea to now and you have said history will judge them. What did you mean by that. The people didn't send them to tokyo. It was a military that did they sent a shooter who whose background is in the navy to tokyo to show that the military is firmly in charge so very symbolic act and for a famous know batman's player like to go to olympics next to this military man i think it's a stain on her reputation as a sportsperson representing I reject her claim that she's doing it for the people as long as she stands next to. You know who's who's colleagues are killing people in our everyday. North korea has gone to the olympics and syria and the united states is committed war crimes to would you have the ioc the international olympic committee bar those countries to. Yes i so i. I don't have the answers to that. Because it's a it's a very difficult question to answer. But i do think that the ifc and the global sports movement including athletes coaches need to sort of envision a future for the olympic that's more humane and trying to use sports really the means for peace settlement and and human rights in making the decision not to go. Is it possible that you have run out of time and you'll never be able to compete in the olympics. Ever yeah definitely. I knew that you know this is this is a. I just lost my only chance at going to the olympics. I'm completely fine with that. Because i- dented with the olympic movement for two decades. But it's not everything in life Now the fight for freedom means a lot more to me than being olympian.

Expert Weighs in on Connection Between Climate Change and Recent Heatwaves
"Nature. Climate Change found that more than a third of the total deaths due to heat waves can be attributed to climate change. What should we expect in the coming years? I mean these events Likely to be more common. We know from the climate science that climate change is increasing the frequency, the intensity and the duration of heatwaves. We also have seen over the last few years. Very extreme heat waves. In Siberia last year where the temperatures in the Arctic I believe we're over 100 degrees. There was a heatwave in Japan that the Japanese meteorological authorities said couldn't have happened without climate change. Northern Scandinavia, Sweden A couple of years ago had a heatwave was 700 excess deaths. So we're seeing these around the world. And, yes, Communities need to develop heat action plans to be prepared for much hotter future. That was Professor Christi E.

"What would you say was the biggest lesson maybe of this film. If goes list along the lessons are fun. You had such a long process to make this. Just if there's any advice you can impart to other filmmakers now that you're at the end of the journey rather than if you need more than fifteen thousand dollars go on crowd sharing but bingo for chris. Rock the whole light. It took a long time to write this. So the obvious answer is you just gotta keep persevering let it keep evolving and never give up. It's not a question of surviving question of prevailing. I think that's a great way to say. I love the imagery in this movie. I really appreciate you both for being so generous with your time. And and and making such a meditative film Thanks again able and chris for chatting today senior daycare and that's how they went down special again to co writer. Director abel fair and co writer criticized for being so generous with their time about speaking about their creative process on their latest film siberia and folks. I hope you'll help. Spread the word about siberia because smaller films like this sometimes get lost in the marketplace. And it really isn't accomplishment to put so much dreamlike imagery and put the audience into a meditative state in a film like this. So i hope you'll spread the word about siberia and folks remember. This podcast started as a virtual screening if you would like to join us for future..

"Give this guy a chance and give this fucking this whole thing. You can't just toss this you know after put it wasn't only it was assured scrimp you know we had the big type to try to make. It seem longer get saying it was like reading the night short could folk him locked in but actually locked into the students once seen a zoe wrote. You know we almost shoot me. Was like zoe wrote this bucket long long. Seen in the confessional. When the the the none was Confessing sin anyway so harvey like locked into that. So as you're as you're rewriting during productions that what was going on there was. There was literal rewrites during production. Because i'm curious what that was like for you as a director. That's not an easy way to shoot now. I mean it's not a matter. We may not need. The scenes will air at harvey's gonna plant. You know. walk in was gonna play that up to like the very end. I mean walking was gonna play the battle tenant. All the rehearsals will with chris so that was a whole other movie. 'cause chris take on saint scenes. Were like some kind of musical comedy next to would harvey's then about two weeks before the film was sitting in sitting at the chateau mohmand with interest. Chris walks in just said zone. Steady says you know. I know exactly what able wants. And i can't give it to him. Thank you so splits k. K. knee with the director fee. Already stent. and you know no movie star. What it's for the best. I tell really made it his. I just wanna know because you know. We've we've run into so many bad cops since that movie and it's always resonated with people as the car scene when he pulls over the two girls and you know the the screen i was at some people got up and walked out because they literally couldn't believe it was happening on scene. I'm curious what it was like filming that going through that kind of scene with tell because you know it was. It was shocking when it came out. I think it's still shocking today. I mean he's doing his thing. You know what i'm saying. It's like you show actually that night were out there in the rain and I hate these hollywood films where it's raining. But none of the actors get what right but harvey one at all if you wanna get wet. And i'm like oh fuck man. Excuse can be one of you. See and i mean like you know. He's got an shell setup and you know and know we didn't have plagued. This was like a street movie but we have played back enough right so we have two cameras jammed in there. There's classical spring like mother focus like the meat market before the meat market. And i'll be just roll suit fucking thing. I can't even see what he's doing. You know what i'm saying. They're going to be getting a shot. You don't wanna be in a reflection. There's no fucking you know. There's no would they have now video tents. Look you know twenty. Everybody's got a fucking you know. See what's going out real dice you know and usually we do one taken that would be it you know and but then we did take and and you know it's always like an blackout where we work with south yet the same thing like the one take like each slated. Then it's tom Let's listen. I was great. Manley was great concern. Let's try it again. Why you know behind excite always. Have i always be prepared for. Why like maybe the doom breaks. Maybe get scratching. The you know what i mean you know. Give some technically y but almost in the same so we did the one you know it was pretty much. Take but i'm figuring. I'm not seeing that clear. You did not really know what's going on. Dp is like he was expecting something else that they can get girls out of the car and the whole deal. But then victor walks up victor argo. You know same victorio. Great victor argo eighty was late. You know and harvey goes with the book man. I just did the puck and see you know and you late you know and then i say he says let's do another one for picture not almost film just like for the fucking performance of it right. I'm thinking thank god. Let's get this. You know i mean you know sit up also like that guy does a ten minute take than everybody goes home tonight. It's like crazy but anyway so then we put victor up with put him up in a chair sue. What's going on now. We like set up the cameras for different angles. Harvey know. did it again. So it's definitely a scene that is is iconic to the film. It's a wild performance again. I could talk more about it. I'm going to move on for second. Chris you weren't they babysitter so stupid in real life. I wanna get into today chris. No one's been able to observe abel's creative habit like you have so up close and personal. What are what are some of the interesting creative habits you've noticed about over the years both as a writer and a director that you found interesting or inspiring or even quirky. He has a grasp of universal wishes. That takes baseball's on philisophical level and also on a human level. So i believe that his you know his vision of things encompasses both and i think that's very important. Because they're very few people never mind directors that can actually do that for instance with the blackout has take on mattie. I mean you know there were so many things going on under the surface and that's how we really connect the talk about that character and the same thing with the willem in new rose hotel Christopher walken new rose hotel able as a great deal of empathy for the human condition but he also delves into and six about and this is why i think siberia zone or there's so many universal issue somebody philosophical issues. That really are the backstory or the subtext of siberia. You know able love want they said to me. Look i wanna do this movie a originally you know. He was motivated or inspired by jones. Read books you're talking about. Carl jung's personal diary which which has been translated into the read books and study of dream on something but actually able with seeing passed. What young was looking at in siberia against so many issues about our vista molecules biscuit logical and even more you know how we view reality. I mean there's a story and then there's all of that and you know able sees these things. And as i said when we were first conversing about it you know it resumes with a lot of the things that i believe and so he doesn't have to take me aside and explain to me what he's trying to do you know i get let's talk about your creative processes writers from moment when you sit down to write how important is outlining to your process and we could start talking about applying this to siberia. Did you do you start with an outline for siberia not really we. We start with a shared vision now. If you want to tell to demonstrate how quirky we are. I did three because psychiatrist. Obviously i did three therapy sessions with will dealing with this.

You know we get a just you know. She just chilled out. We didn't we didn't have if we're gonna do. We gotta do. We didn't need to do but you know at the time you know i will patients. Wasn't you know thing. I wanted to work. I wanted to get it gone so talk and kate. You know we've made a lot of bum you know. Did you have trouble transitioning to two regular cinema. Now nam went from our next location. Porno count to make an exploitation. Bildt right you know what was the transition you know it was you know we don't with what we wanna do anyway. So you know sir. We didn't ask permission to do that. And we didn't ask permission to do driller so right at drill quickly the other side of the shake weight driller killer is a wild movie. And that's kind of what put you on the map towards the towards legitimate cinema out of outside of that industry. Chris i wanna start with your breaking story. You you've got a degree in philosophy rutgers and you became a shrink and then you wrote a book and think like shrink did did really well for you and then you wrote a similar book and to date. you've had five screenplays produced four of them able. Why did you decide to become a screenwriter. Getting into screenwriting as all labels faults. I blamed him able Was doing a film that became blackout and a mutual friend of ours. Said he needed a psychiatric scene and he needed some tackle help able and i met at his. This probably able ninety six dan. You got me with somewhere somewhere somewhere. So we've talked for five hours. Senate was a wide range in conversation also about character development elements of the film at the end of that time he said. I don't have a writer. Would you write this unencumbered. By fact i said sure. I was in the middle of writing a textbook on short term therapy so i put that aside and i work with able and i said you know this a lot more rewarding so a lot. More fun talking. Is you know writing tax and really dont started. I mean we basically have a very similar outlook on life general and when able comes up with an idea i get it. You know it's like resonates with what i'm thinking about and that was true from the blackout. New rose hotel. Welcome to new york and really you know. We can talk about later but siberia's kind of been not the culmination of our thinking about a wide range of subjects. But it's it's certainly getting there. That makes sense. I i i'm going to talk about a few of your works able before we get to siberia and then we're going to dive head deep in siberia and your partnership is writers. I would be remiss. If i didn't bring up king of new york. I could do a whole episode of that. 'cause i i love the film i'm just going to boil it down to one question. What was your biggest lesson making that film. I mean you learn so much. Maybe move. So i couldn't one thing you know you you you make these films to learn to grow to win. I mean it was like what was your favorite day of shooting on king of king. Your probably the first day in a last night. And i was actually christmas today It was the first time. Walking was actually in that like you know. We're chris comes in and shoots the guy playing cards in that italian mob place right here and we're down in Fucking chinatown but we're all like you know real gangsters and and the whole crew was fish per everybody. They're balking. we were looking through their little kid. Who was the chinese gangster right in the movie. You're not ahead by the second is partner. Who's like little young but real deal. Do we've been looking for him for six months in china grow couldn't find ago so we started shooting scene. They tell me on show. Somebody's out said you know the problem with these chinese kids outside. 'cause they wanna shake down you know they want money shoot on street right thing he can go out and there is the kid we've been looking for to be in a movie. I forget his name. I says what the point where you've been and you know you gotta be in the movie. What you shaking down gotta be anyway then walking kane and You know he's gonna bless and the shot. Will you know and everybody standard says to me. You know. I a hard time pointing a gun at another actor. I i said a really. Why did she shoot like one of my anti gun to the you know teresa black chick. Let her shoot him thing. You've got a heart. I think wait a minute. You gotta shoot like twenty year. You're going to be blessed. You gotta let time pointing. No we gotta around so you can win from. He didn't wanna point a gun at another actor shooting. That guy about ten fucking time but you know especially with that over the top. You know that Talker routes we called but that you know nobody shoots anybody like walking. Nobody does any can lead to match. I out of all the things you would say. I did not expect that Your your career really took off after king of new york. And i would be remiss if i didn't mention bed lieutenant. I've always been a fan of the film. I saw it in theaters and it was just an amazing theatrical experience. In which half the audience had i knew i was showing up to able for a movie but half the audience had no clue what they were walking into and it was. It was just wild and you know. I've read that the the the sixty page script with with tamara's lund the guys that you share go writing credit on. I'd read them. K tel basically kind of threw it out and wanted to kind of find his character. Improvisation early as he was just now. now he didn't wanna find anything no he gleaned salary without he just flew out.

Researchers recover 1-million-year-old mammoth DNA

Over 5,100 arrested at pro-Navalny protests across Russia
"Arrests rows of riot police liberally deploying their battle ons that has been the uncompromising response to Russia's second weekend of unauthorized nationwide protests. Calling for the release of the opposition leader Alex in the valley and for an end to high level corruption. Down with his are they chanted in Russia's imperial capitals in Petersburg, the anger of today's revolutionaries not directed at the Winter Palace. But Putin's palace, the name given to the president's alleged unofficial residents in Alexey Navalny's YouTube video that's being watched now more than 100 million times. This weekend, One of Mr Putin's closest oligarch friends claimed that he owned the lavish black sea residents will. Mr Navalny is currently in pre trial detention two weeks after he was arrested on his return from Germany. We had been recovering from being poisoned by a nerve agent in Siberia today. His wife, Julia novel, there was among the hundreds who were arrested in the Russian capital. Moscow correspondent Sara Rainsford was also on the streets. So how was the day? It was pretty dramatic. I mean, Barricaded off. There were right place there from the early morning and a lot of shops and stuff have been closed as well. Toe to deter people from coming out. There were small groups all over the place. But suddenly, at one point they all converge near Theory, Leningrad train station and they began heading for the prison where Alexander Bonnie is being held on remand and the crowd. At one point there was a huge crowd swarming across the main road and the police At first, just letting them pass. But eventually, the right place. Reinforcements were sent in in very big numbers. So there were then swift detentions. Dozens. Hundreds of people here in Moscow detained some of them quite brutally being dragged face first towards police fans, mainly a younger crowd. Yeah, you know, itwas compared to last Saturday. I would say that there were predominantly younger people in the crowd this time, So it was a bit more diverse last time. One of the young I don't mean you know teenagers, which is something that the Kremlin and the authorities here accused the missing around the supporters of of bringing out young young people Minors under 18 onto the streets. No, there were students. There were people in their twenties people in their thirties and they were, you know, they were very vocal. They were prepared to shout in the face of the riot place to demand. Alexander van is release. But what was interesting, I think was that of the people I spoke to the vast majority told me that they weren't really big fans of Mr Navalny himself. They were there because they see him as a symbol off a political leadership, which refuses political competition. They see him as a symbol of democracy on as a symbol of choice. Yes, interesting. What you say about the young but not the very young or the old older people? Because are they? Perhaps reacting to what President Putin himself said he talked, I think about The leaders of the movement being terrorists who are using women and Children, Aziz Shields Missing, if only has traditionally had quite a big following amongst the people in their early twenties. He's got a lot of young supporters right across Russia, but I think you know the reason that people were younger today is probably because of the risk they were facing. I think some of the sort of older, more cautious people basically stayed away because Last Saturday. We saw a huge number of people detained more than 4000 people across Russia. It wasn't particularly violent, but people fear for the consequences of getting detained. So this time Slightly younger, perhaps more more prone to taking risks. Crowds there on the streets. But you know you have to bear in mind. What risk you face. If you protest in this country, it is basically illegal tow protest. Even one person pickets when you stand with a placard almost impossible to do these days, so people are facing not only short term police detentions, but often criminal cases, criminal charges. Sarah Rainsford in
Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny
"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

Navalny releases recording of call to his alleged poisoner
"Allegedly involved in the attempt to kill Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has apparently confessed to his role in the plot. NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, Navalny has posted the audio of a phone call with an alleged operative who is seemingly duped into thinking he was talking to an aide with Russia's Security Council. Recording has not been independently verified, innit Navalny posing as the fictional aid prodded the operative for details of the operation, demanding to know what went wrong. Alleged operative, in turn, confirmed the FSB was behind the poisoning and said his colleagues had applied the Soviet era nerve agent Nova shock to the inner seems of Navalny's boxer shorts while he was staying at a hotel in Siberia. Two days later, Navalny war the poisoned underwear and later collapsed on an airplane before being taken to Germany for treatment where he's still recuperating. Rob

Because medicine here either wasn't Certified by the FDA, or because there were just better doctors for that particular illness in other parts of the world, But 400 million people are walking around. They don't know what the hell's wrong with them. Their doctors don't know what's wrong with him. And I guess I suppose that's why it's called practicing medicine and not performing medicine. But it's frustrating. It really is your sick. You want to get better? And all you do is just get past all from one doctor to the next and often you don't even know at the end of it all if they did anything for you, or if it just went away. Frustrating. 1 23.

"In Siberia have been releasing record amounts of greenhouse gases, scientists say contributing to global warming. The fires, fueled by abnormally high temperatures have been burning as far north as the Arctic Circle. Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg has travelled to the remote Yakutia region in north eastern Russia to gauge the effects of climate change, both on local communities on on the planet. I've got a helicopter flying across northern Siberia. Not far from the Arctic Circle. Look down below, I could see forest stretching forever. But rising from the trees. Our rooms of thick smoke. Because record high temperatures here. Fueling Suresh spies. And that has implications but only for people who live in Siberia for the global climate. Thiss part of Russia is called. It is a huge region. Five times the size of France. Because of all its forests, people here cool. You could hear the lungs of the planet. Well, Judging by all the smoke, I can see our planet has a big problem. Like on the ground. We switch to an off road Russian bag that feels as tough as a tank. Plough through the thick undergrowth. Suddenly out of the window, I see a charred wasteland. Fire has reduced large and silver birch tow ash. We continue on foot with a group of forest Rangers. The range of Valentin tells me is getting hotter and hotter here every year, he spends nearly all his summers now fighting Forest vice When he's not firefighting. He's out hunting in Yakutia before a hunt, Valentin says. Traditionally, we light a campfire. We put pancakes and fermented horse milk by the flames as sacrifices to the spirit of the tiger to make the hunt go well. So a small fire is a source of good. It's the big ones that are bad for you was all right. That was Well, now we've reached a fire. It is incredibly hot here. Flames are licking the undergrowth and Dancing up the tree trunks. Sending Rooms of thick smoke into the air. This is going on across Siberia, a region which is now trapped in a vicious cycle of climate change, because rising temperatures Mean dr Forests and more forests fires like this one and more fires means more carbon emissions being pumped into the atmosphere. Andme or climate change. Two Rangers try to put out the flames using small water pumps. But as soon as one fire is out another sparks It's not just the visible burning. That's a problem. Underground fire is boring. The permafrost ground, which in places has been frozen for tens of thousands of years. That's releasing even Mohr greenhouse gases. Further north in another Siberian forest, local firefighter Even Zahara is filling his water pump from a lake. He's got a shovel, too, to smother any hint of flame recently even helped put out a big fire here that was threatening his village. They're fashionable.

It did seem like she was speaking more openly about her immigrant roots than some of what we heard during the primary cycle.

One of the fiercest critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin is in a coma in a hospital in Siberia. His colleagues believed that Alexei Navalny was poisoned. Two years ago, Navalny tried to run against Putin in presidential elections, but he wasn't allowed to register as a candidate for the latest. We're joined now by NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. Hey, Lucien. Hey, Elsa. So how much do we know about what happened? I mean, how did Navalny end UPIN, a hospital more than 1000 Miles east of Moscow. Well. This morning he was flying back to Moscow from Siberia with his press secretary curator Garmisch. He felt ill lost consciousness, and the plane had to make an emergency landing in the city of alms. Where he was taken to a hospital. The doctors there have been pretty tight lipped, but you are much spoke to a Moscow radio station this morning with the traveling, you know, she said she's sure Navalny was poisoned and that this was already the second time she says the first time was a year ago when he was doing jail time during protests in Moscow. Official diagnosis back then, was that he had an allergic reaction. Okay, So, as we said Navalny has been a leading critic of Putin for several years now, can you just tell us more about who he is and what he's has said about Putin. Sure, no volley is probably the most colorful and prominent opponent, President Putin has had in his 20 years and power. Navalny is an anti corruption campaigner and politician. But what makes him so successful is his mastery of social media and grassroots organizing. Even as you mentioned his presidential campaign went nowhere. He has a nationwide network of activists and thanks to the Internet, really a reach to the farthest corners of Russia. It's fair to say that Navalny, who is 44 has inspired and really energized a new generation of Russians who view their government very skeptically. Well, it is well known that many people who have crossed the Kremlin have been poisoned. So does this case with navalny fit into that larger pattern? You think Well, Unfortunately, there's there is a long list of Russians who have fallen ill or even died after being poisoned. The most recent example, of course, is the incident in Salisbury, England, where a former Russian spy and his daughter were poisoned. On. That was just the latest of several incidents just in the U. K. In Russia. A number of opposition figures have also been poisoned. The Kremlin, for its part, says it's way too early to say that Navalny was poisoned. Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, spoke to reporters today. My Uh, name's stay in, He said the Kremlin is monitoring the situation and that if necessary, the Kremlin doesn't have anything against navalny getting treatment abroad as any Russian citizen has the right to do. No, I understand that there are plans to evacuate Navalny to Germany for treatment there. Possibly. Earlier today. One of Navalny's doctors said that he hoped Navalny could be treated in a clinic in France or Germany, not because Russian doctors wouldn't be able to cure him. But because the chances are much higher foreign doctors will be get will be able to get to the bottom of what caused his illness. Later, we heard from the leaders of Germany and France that they are ready to help provide him with medical care, even political asylum and now activists in Germany who helped treat another Russian poison victim say they have a plane ready to go and get him as soon as the Russians given permission. That is NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thank you, Lucien. Thanks, Elsa. News now from Germany, where dogs are saying Lovo. That's German.

Each walk must last at least one hour. The minister in charge is Yulia Kloeckner, whose office declined to put her directly in touch with NPR today, But she was quoted in the Guardian saying dogs are not cuddly toys. They also have their own needs, which need to be taken into account. It's a strict rule that also says dogs cannot be left alone at home all day. As for law enforcement.
