"They are addressing, I'm just enormously heartened and it makes me optimistic about the future. Well, I'm going to share an observation here that may not be right. But when we were first introduced back in the spring and I was really interested in having a chance to beat you and get you on the podcast and so forth and my impression is that you were feeling kind of stressed and I think sometimes you pick that up just from third parties schedulers, but also you wrote a column somewhere. I can't remember where you kind of talked about the busyness of your day. And so I had a sense that you were ready for a pause yourself. And then lo and behold, you had a pause. You were able to take a sabbatical and you had a very new kind of experience. First, would you tell us were you really ready for it? And why did you do on your sabbatical? So it was an incredible gift to be able to remember how to practice what I'd been preaching about the power that space between one experience and the next can reveal to us. And I remember talking to a mentor early in that process and she reflected back to me, she said, oh, you can take your own advice, use the same framework that you've used with thousands of young people through the years. And I did, I took that framework to heart and I'm happy to share it now because I think it was incredibly useful to me and my hope is that it can be useful to others, but the approach I took in this sort of unbounded unstructured time that can be so disorienting. I think we're so averse to downtime to liminal spaces between one thing and the next. We're so hard wired to chase down the answer without being comfortable sitting in the ambiguity of the question. So the process really has four parts. And the first is to define your questions. So for me, it was thinking about what had I learned in the last decade of building and leading global citizen year. Then sort of encountering who I was now and who I was becoming and what kind of work I was feeling drawn to do next. And it was really defining those questions without the need to answer them, but with a genuine desire to just sit inside of them to carry the questions with some faith that the answers would emerge. And so after defining our questions, it's really a matter of finding our teachers. And those may not be the usual suspects or the people who are assigned to us. But I did what I would now call a wisdom tour over the summer, where I sought out my college professors, my first boss, my first employee, I spent a lot of time with my kids, my boys are 6 and 7 years old, and vivid memory of learning from them as they were cultivating caterpillars and watching them form crystal chrysalis. And then emerging as butterflies and in the process we learned that while in the chrysalis, a caterpillar, liquefies, actually loses all form and shape. And then emerges as a butterfly, and I found that to be such an exquisite metaphor for this process of a transition. So we define our questions. We find our teachers, and then there's something about leaving our comfort zone that I know from my own lived experience that I don't learn when I'm comfortable. I also don't learn when I'm panicked, but I learn when I'm stretched. And this is about stepping outside of our normal habitual ways of doing things. So I picked up a guitar and struggled through learning some early chords. I changed my running route and did things that I wasn't typically accustomed to doing. And I think anything that sort of knocks us off off balance a bit. I didn't spend a week traveling by myself in Sicily. And just had an experience of tuning into who am I when nobody's watching? What are my preferences when I'm not accommodating other people? And you just let the noise settle and you're still living in those questions and but it was really that final week of travel on my own that I found incredibly formative in digesting and sort of living my way toward some of the answers. And then there's a process of reflecting throughout, I think I really am a huge believer in rigorous reflection that helps us understand holistically where we are in a transition and reflect it back to ourselves and whether that's through meditation or writing, I was really exploring a morning writing practice, writing morning pages, three pages by hand, long form every morning when I woke up, and it was really in that exercise that I was able to see the contents of my mind and heart and just develop a more compassionate and intimate relationship with my own experience. Well, I love your process. I was taking notes thinking, I got to write about this someplace. But let me just reiterate my understanding, because I think this is such a great takeaway. I agree with you entirely that any kind of transition starts with the questions. And you made the point that it's not just about the answers defining the questions is a really important phase and I found with myself and with some coaching clients that lots of times if people live with the questions for a while, even if they're not worrying about them in the middle of the night, if they're kind of put in the back of their brains, they're still being processed. So defining the questions makes such a lot of sense. And I totally agree with you that writing can be an important part of the process, even if you don't know the answer. And there's lots of research about how writing kind of involves your whole brain, your whole body. It's a wonderful way to process anything. So I would urge people to do those two things and to learn to pause. That feels like a great transition. Mindset to cultivate. Is that did I get the essence there? Absolutely. Beautifully, beautifully. And I think by creating this space for myself, I was able to leave the water. I'd been in and see it more clearly from a distance. I was able to reconnect with myself in ways that were harder in the day to day complexity and process of leading global citizen year. And what came clear for me through that experience is that my mission is still my mission. I am deeply and increasingly committed to helping young people in the cusp of adulthood have the kinds of experiences that help them frame their questions so that when they then make decisions about what comes next, whether it's going to college or into work experiences or designing their own higher education, that we need a global Rite of passage and my pause this summer created a sense of aspiration and inspiration around thinking about new models that can help create a really large scale change in how we think about this life stage. Well, I agree with you that it's time for new models and I do a little work with universities and my sense is that things are changing, but very, very unevenly. So in your next phase, are you going to be thinking about what the new model can be like about how schools and universities can be different learning can be different? Is that part of your focus and do you want to tell us about what you're going to be doing in the next phase? Or you started, I guess,

Republicans Are Catching up in Races Across the Country

"Back to Nevada. Clark county sheriff Joe lombardo is the Republican candidate. He has run pretty much he's running pretty much even now. With Sicily in various polls. Lombardo in some polls is leading cis black by one, two percentage points. Again, this was a race that people weren't quite sure about. Just the news is now reporting that Michigan GOP gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon is now tied with Democrat incumbent governor Gretchen Whitmer. Now, how happy would you be to see Gretchen Whitmer retired? The Michigan news source and the Trafalgar poll just released, shows this neck and neck. This could be a Tulsa. Again, governor Gretchen Whitmer had no idea she was going to be in a competitive race. Meanwhile, in Arizona, the Republican gubernatorial candidate Carrie Lake there. Mike Gallagher just left Phoenix for one of the battleground tour, stops there. Carrie Lake is Islam. Her Democrat opponent, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, because Hobbes refused to show up for a long schedule debate. And we're seeing that in a lot of races around the country where Democrats simply don't want to be on the debate stage with their Republican opponent. In Pennsylvania, for example, you may have heard John fetterman is making all kind of excuses, saying that Doctor Oz is a TV personality. He has the advantage. He's on TV a lot. Of course, saying that he's going to need his monitors in order to read the question. Which leads me to the question of how can you be running to be in the U.S. Senate, and you need a device to read the questions from?

"More like color correcting. Would you say? Yeah, and if you read a lot of the reviews, people mentioned that. This is better than the color correct the back color corrector or whatever. That's a good comparison. The Becca color corrector, 'cause I'm looking at the shade spread. I still think they could probably add on like maybe two or three shades for like the deeper and dark skin tones, but you can tell everything has more of a either pink or almost like red tint to help conceal. But then again, also I'm looking at this arm and one of the arms, the deep arm has more like cool tones too. Yeah, so maybe it just looks different on what shade are you. I'm three. So I've been using 2.5 and mostly for my under eye. And then I've been using three and four for my face. So I'm like kind of switching it up. Okay, I have three and four, four is a little too dark for my skin. But the three is like perfect. It's like absolutely perfect. I mean, I do have to be critical. I will say I'm looking at this dark arm and like some of these shades, they're too ashy. They're way too chalky. Yeah, I was gonna say it looks a little ashy. They are not catering, at least for like the lighter shades, it seems like those are more geared towards like very fair skin. But then on the fair arm, there's a lot of shades that seem to be more for like medium skin or like dark skin, not deep skin. And I think that's like the missing component. Yeah. And I think that, you know, we could definitely argue that Sicily, all of their color face coverage, their shade range could use some work for those deeper tones especially. Even though I eat blended with my fingers, I love that has the little cooling metal tip applicator.

Charlie Dives Into Nevada Politics

"Republicans can win Senate races in Nevada. I believe his name was dean Heller recently. Was a senator from Nevada. An Adam laxalt is shocking the world Nevada has all of a sudden become this sleeper race where Democrats are almost beginning to expect a loss in the state of Nevada. So there's a couple things happening in Nevada. Number one, governor sisolak is one of the worst governors in America. He's a Democrat governor. And he has a lot of resentment brewing in Nevada because of how he inappropriately locked down the casino and gaming industry, how he went full Gestapo a lot of people lost their jobs. A lot of people lost their livelihoods, a lot of people never got back to where they were. There is serious financial misery that is all over Clark county. All over Clark county, ollo and Clark county's the biggest county in Nevada. And so the gaming industry in particular was just destroyed by Sicily, which is a massive amount of jobs now, you know, casino gambling might not be your thing. That's not the point. The point is that it's an economic engine and there's so many other things, so many other industries that are supported outside of just not casino gaming. Restaurants, entertainment shows, plays, all sorts of different things. Sporting events, conventions, a lot of stuff happens in Vegas outside of just the stereotypical stuff, which is this, by the way, to very depraved place in certain sense. But so is every American city. And I think there's some wonderful people in Vegas, and I know them, and I have dear Friends there. But they destroy that industry inappropriately unnecessarily. That's number one. Number two, Nevada has seen a significant increase in out of state people coming from California. And a lot of them have been Republicans. A lot of them are not necessarily coming to Nevada just to go vote for Democrats. A lot of that growth has been in the Lake Tahoe area or the Reno area or an especially in the Vegas area, the summit area.

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert on the Future of Gun Control

"Of have this reputation as being this gun toting congresswoman. Right. And you say, yes. You're proud of that. Second Amendment rights are under attack. What does that look like legislatively? Do you think there's going to be more gun control anytime soon? They're going to push through as much gun control as possible. You know, it was really shameful that somebody senators actually voted with the Democrats to pass this gun legislation. I was watching hearings in the judiciary committee. Sicily, he thinks a stabilizing brace actually converts a pistol into a fully automatic weapon. And so these people who are absolutely ignorant on the issue want to legislate the issue and they don't know what it is.

Democrats Are Willing to Sacrifice the Constitution for Their Agenda

"Going to play a clip here from representative Sicily, who is actually the sponsor of this assault weapon, man. He's very blunt. He used a strong language, but he had just flat out says, I don't care about your constitutional argument. Take a listen. So spam me the. About constitutional rights. The gentleman. No, I will not. And I'm not going to yield for my entire 5 minutes so don't ask again. Wow. I mean, is there any doubt? I mean, Democrats are willing to sacrifice the constitutional amendments that we have. If they don't fit their political agenda, this is the problem that we've had all along, especially with this court in this past cycle in particular, this past month, when you had court rulings in the school choice case up in Maine, you had it in the school prayer or the prayer case with a coach Kennedy case. You had it in the gun case out of New York. And you had it, of course, in the Hobbes decision out of Mississippi, in which you roe versus wade was overturned. Now, this is just a recurring theme when they don't like what is happening. The jobs in case and others here, when they don't like what is happening, they just tend to blame the court. They blame the interpretation. They don't like the amendments. You know, the court is now an activist court because it doesn't fit their agenda. Now when it was an activist court implementing roe V wade when it was an activist court, you know, defining the separation, this wall of separation in the defining of the free expression and the establishment clause in the First Amendment, they didn't know have any problem with that. But when it's done fit their agenda, they don't like it.

The Story of Paul 'Lefty' Della Universita With His Nephew Jerry Vairo

"Paulie lefty Della university town. He was a protege of Lucky Luciano. And he left, he left an indelible mark on the mafia and American history. This is a guy who personally had his hand in events like the World War II allied invasion of Sicily, the birth of the Las Vegas casinos, the Cuban heroin connection, Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance and the Lufthansa, which was made popular in the film Goodfellas. But I'm telling you, you never heard of him. Well, I'm here to tell you he's real. I don't bullshit you. And on the phone with me straight from Florida is his great nephew, Jerry varro, Jerry. Well, what's up, AJ? How you doing, pal? I'm good. How about yourself? All right, I just. I just basically intro great uncle lefty and let the folks know a little about who he was, what he had his hands in, but there's a million things we could start with. We could start with his upbringing, et cetera, et cetera, his knowing is knowing numbers so well and his left hand that he knocked out a guy, didn't he kill a guy with a punch or some shit like that. And I know there's a big legend around his nickname, but I want to start in 1945. I think Pauley left these about 27 years old at the time and he had masterminded the biggest narcotics highest in American history by hearing about a large shipment of morphine from the New York docks. Got him about a half a $1 million and made him a major player in the mafia, right? That's basically the beginning of him becoming a big player, yeah? Well, at least the beginning when he was mentioned and The New York Times in that True Detective magazine, he did some stuff before that. But that's oh yeah. Yeah. That was when he was noticed by other guys. Like, who's this guy that gets away with doing that? Right. Now the thing that's really, I think when he really came to prominence and again, correct me from, I'm going on memory here, 'cause we sat down, you and I, many times, and I read the book, and I've done the radio shows with you, et cetera. But when this Sicilian stepped in and showed, they kind of showed lefty who really ran America's crime syndicate. And that basically was the Cosa Nostra back in Sicily. So Pauly gets promoted to a position that's basically the Sicilian ambassador to the American mob, right? Correct. He was made from what Tony Napoli told me. He was made at a young age by Lucky Luciano set that whole thing up because guys would be in deported left and right for drugs. They were into drugs big time. And Pauly was American born. So we couldn't be deported. And he was a 100% Sicilian, and he was loyal, and he was under the wing of Luciano and Jimmy alto. So he was a perfect candidate to be that

"So it kind of makes sense. But back to what we said about the evolution, I don't think we'll evolve it that way. Not because our bodies can't evolve, but because evolution takes so long that I don't think we're going to allow it to happen. I don't think we're all just going to allow ourselves to die of overconsumption and non activity. We're hacking it and constantly figuring it out with medication and exercise and ways to keep ourselves alive. So the evolutionary pressures aren't necessarily there. But if we allowed it to just happen, it would be thousands of years. So you don't think we're going to just be genderless blobs in space? Maybe I don't know. I feel like it's going there. Maybe unless you're attached to the baby part computer part. Yeah. You never know. Yeah. No, I mean, we're not gonna allow it to happen because before the before those evolutionary pressures take over, we'll figure it out with technology and medicine and stuff like that. But it's so weird dude. It's funny because obviously my parents poor immigrants. And if you go back to just my grandfather's generation, my grandfather, both my grandfather's grew up very differently. They grew up the way most Americans ancestors grew up in the late 1800s because they were in Sicily. So they were super poor. It's like my grandfather lived in a one cement room and him and his 9 siblings were in one side. Mom and dad and other side all divided by a sheet. This is how they divide the room and the donkey was in the cement room. That's how they lived, right? So it was super crazy, super hard. And you know, when I would, when I went to Sicily the last time I talked to my grandfather, we were talking about this and he goes, it's so funny when I hear my grandkids talk about their neck hurting or their back hurting because they watch TV all day..

Today's interview you can hear it on our website at rick steves dot com slash radio and just a reminder. Our conversation was recorded before. The outbreak of the global pandemic. Our phone number's eight seven seven. Three three three seven. Four to five in courtney's on the phone in portland oregon courtney. Thanks for calling. Thank you for taking my call. Yeah what was your experience in sicily. Well i haven't been to sicily my my husband and i love and we love ancient history and we are trying to plan a two week trip there someday. Like the rental car and drive around and this conversation's may be both a little nervous reassured me because we spend a day at napoli like maybe six years ago and it was wildly. Found it very crazy and so just to hear sicily described as sort of napoli on. Steroids makes me a little bit nervous. I wouldn't i wouldn't drive in naples. I can't think of a worse place to drive anywhere as naples. So you don't have a car in the big cities of sicily. But a car is wonderful in the countryside of sicily you'd fever infect sicily overbuilt from a traffic infrastructure. They've got bigger roads than they have enough traffic to use them. I think. What would you say. Susannah what i would say. Definitely the big cities paloma catania. I would ideally park the car and then start walking. Because it's a very manageable. Polemics bigger is a capital. But steal whatever you want to see. It's more or less in the radio of the center. You know what you could do as you could fly in to one of the big cities. Syracuse or palermo. Because you don't really need to see. Palermo end syracuse. You can do one or the other and then pick up your car on the way out and then for one week with your car you can visit all of the countryside sites and when you visit those famous sites in the countryside your car is a blessing when you have a car in palermo or or syracuse. It's a curse. Yeah that makes sense. That makes a lot of fun. When would you recommend we go.

"Thanks for your call. Thanks nice talking to you. Just returned from italy. I was there. I was in italy itself for nine weeks and then i was three weeks in sicily while three weeks in sicily. What what was your impression. I absolutely loved it. I traveled a lot and over the years. I've heard good the bad and the ugly about sicily. And i decided to go see it for myself and i'm so glad i did. I was totally enthralled with it. I think it's a beautiful place and I was in torino alone for the first week and then friends arrived and we rented a van and we had your book and so we did everything he told us to do. So that would be. You would probably do palermo. You might do montreal. The beautiful church upside of palermo. Agrigento with the temples The roman mosaics at villa romana di casale. And then it'd be syracuse. And of course mount edna and then we did go to the towns. You mentioned we also went to check kalou. Is that how you say it sapolu. I love chef lieu. What did you think about jeff. I loved it absolutely loved. It was fascinating and one place that we didn't see in your book that we went to was. Ha the stony place. I've ever bennett dream. Or the whole world is a little pebbles all glued together. Exactly exactly the weather was absolutely beautiful and chewy. It was the best food. I had an italy that the food is amazing. Life is a celebration of food. They're afraid to when you take groups. Around alfredo how do you turn on with the food. While the best experiencing for example when you're in palermo and catania also is to go to the markets. That's really amazing. I mean know. The callers the flowers and descends. And whatever you can just the feeling walking around and interacting with people only. He's selling boiled bits of the cowboys piece of the year. And you can places. Was the fish market in japan. Fish market is out pago freestyle light and we had dinner and one of the restaurants in the fish market here that night and it was like the fish jumped right out of the water onto your fresh. It was absolutely marvelous and susanna. When you're with a group taking them around sicily. How do you impress them with the food. While you have to be honest you don't have to do much to impress people you just have to take them to the markets have a taste of whatever they they want to taste. It is true that for americans at the beginning can be tough to understand that Especially of animals. We eat everything so can be liver can be the brain but once they try. If they're they're being or the list they they love it. The man singing bullet too. I think it means boiled boiled. Bits of cal. He gave me a slice of the knows. Yeah it was actually very nice. Yes i didn't have any burrito. Or i had mostly fish. What about about the. What about the sweets gene. How about the cannoli. And i'm not a big fan of cannolis. Nothing this country in america. Then he can always over there. I mean they are so fresh. I was gonna minute which makes a big difference perfect. I stay away from cannoli. When it's not worth the calories. But in sicily. I don't care what your diet. But you want fresh. And you want that recovery put in it fresh right before your very eyes crunchy outside gene. Thank you so much for taking us on a little review of your beautiful trip in sicily travels. This is travel with rick steves. We've been celebrating. Some genus centrist by the sicily tourist board. There she had such a good trip. And that's not unusual sisley. You're going to have some heat. You're going to have a little bit of chaos. You're gonna have a very friendly welcome great food and oil crowds. I don't have any trouble with the crowds and sicily. You have huge trouble with the crowds venice. Florence and rome Sicily's about half the price in about a quarter of the crowds. Yes it is absolutely true. In fact catania and palermo can be The two big cities and they are but you never feel or at least i never felt that. He was as overwhelming as rome and florence and venice in being special on isis. And so there's always a space to be. There is always a moment. You can sit down over coffee watch for people and i believe that this is one of the many beauties at sisley can offer to people that they are travelers. But they don't want to be to stress because crowds can tire people. I had images from my earlier days of traveling of palermo. Being not very comfortable especially after dark it was just run down and had this reputation of organized crime. I've been there quite a bit the last few years. And you go to those markets and there a festival of life and then after dinner you walk back to the market and it's a whole different personality. It's the the young people. The wonderful bars the beautiful trendy little corners and absolutely one hundred stars. It's some sort of a travelers dream. Come true but you've got to get out of the hotel you've got to walk. Yes i'm richard. Larimer especially for example the botanical garden in parameters another amazing place where to go easy to reach even just walking distance from the center and the center used to be covered in soot and pollution. I remember the quattro corners. What's wrong kennedy. The four corners. It used to be just caked in black. And now it's peeled free and you see the beautiful cleaned up though so they've They've done also Pedestrian normally says. Stop the traffic. It's much easier to walk around make z. To nicer in the evening as you said you you can feel very very comfortable to work around. You know to me proline. The last few years that have been going there with the tourist. I can see that there is a little. It's a little revolution. It's not a big one. As in italy we don't big revolution so everything must be a little bit softer. But little by little. I can see that new little places are open younger. People around as you said square can be a market during the day and then he becomes like a lounge a nice lead on. That's a good word for it. Lounge and the children are out. It's cool and relaxed. I've seen like little renaissance in palermo. Steel has let's face it Like dark alleyways. Then they're not necessarily dangerous stinky and and dirty but the same way with the old part of syracuse used to be a no gold zone absolutely not crossed that bridge to that little island twenty years ago. Even the police didn't want to go into it was ruled by the underbelly of society. Yes and now. He's now now is one of the best areas in sicily. I'm everybody wants to be there. it's very international. it's open. It's it's nice new businesses cafes rightaid the old center of syracuse. And i love. I love the jet in italy.

"And One biaggi thank you rick. Italian tour guides. Tell us why. Bain enjoy taking people to the island of sicily so much. It's next on travel with rick. Steves if italy is the boot well of course. Sicily is the football. The island of sicily is layered with history. A style that makes it one of the liveliest end. Tastiest corners of italy are italian guides when from rome and one from naples. Join us in the studio right now. To tell us why sisley is one of their favorite parts of italy to explore. And to recommend a touring itinerary to help get captured the essence of what the island of organized chaos is all about suzanne perugini. And alfredo vitale join us and thank you both very much for being here. You're very welcome. Thank you thank you. Alfredo give us the big picture. What is unique about sicily. Compared to the rest of italy that you n. Susannah living well. The uniqueness of the island is for sure d- different layers of different cultures. They've been there and had been meeting that place which is relatively not so big bad. It's amazing the quantity of different civilization had been. They're trying to conquer the nobody really managed to do it. So till the end hadn't This make such beautiful layers of cultures. Leave together and come up to life every day. Just don't exist together doesn't yeah basically have a lot of people to say. It's like a lasagna. Are a layer cake. No this is n. when we think of Sisley just very quickly go through the civilizations that have left their imprint on sicily. Let's say that Apart from the The local people were there so the the islands invited into three different the sequence. This sealions endymion's then we started to have mix melting pot real maimon. Because there's many in various tweeting to phoenicians we had the greeks the romans the ancient romans than we had the The muslim domination that lasted more or less three centuries on top of that. The normans the spanish later on then we have to consider that sicily was also. They put him when he came to the unification of italy. So i'm jumping into the rated. You see sicily in the middle of the mediterranean there. It's kind of logical it would be yes. Many civilizations coming in like the tide yes exactly because being in the middle of mediterranean was really the place where people would gather and it was the revenue that was a even much more than england own zone during the day very important place from a trade point of view. Absolute alfredo even in ancient times. I understand some of the most important cities in the world. Were in sicily. Yeah absolutely special. For example for definition as civilization because the finishing got there on the us and part of the island. Chris trapani island. Multi multi is one of the few places where finishing remains are still visible because know nations. We heard that word a lot. They came from northern africa. Not enough coast. It used to be takata cartagena with the original cd on the carthage carcass. Jazz the carthaginians came over and a little little island in front of of traveling called matsen from the partha jinyan side. I've ever seen in europe. I believe because that's actually wanted his. That's remained because the romans attacked the northern parts. And they did point that cartagena's had to be destroyed. Now both of you look at sicily from naples and from rome. What do you think of the the island today. The people the temperament the cuisine. What does it look like from naples. and from rome susannah. Well you know to me he. Sicily is so different rome even though romi some some sort of invisible borderline between the north and the south because from wrong going all the way down everything intensifies the cows. The disorganization say chaos. Yeah so anyway funny because italians often say the word chaos like. Cow's yes i always think. C o w s. Show the wonderful zarella exactly so for me Sicily is intensified emotions There are certain things that you can only see in sicily and you know now it comes to my mind that among the many mosaics roman mosaics that i've seen in my life the best so far have been the ones in medina. Because he's a caselli. What is the villa casella. It's the roman mosaics in the middle of sicily. Things thing is incredible especially for the colors the preservation. so what. I'm trying to say that. Sicily has the power to attract people because of the diversity because of the history of course but the history is the base that created also the incredible cuisine. So we are what we eat and sicilians. Actually they have the best of the best because they have the best of different worlds so they have aerobic influences. They have the best pastries. I have to say nearly so i don't want to go deeper into food because probably you have other questions but to me sicily. The quintessential is the very best. And the very worst at the same time can be okay. So alfredo let's talk about that from your perspective Napoli naples yeah to me. Naples is pretty cows. i mean but you look further tenant. naples look stable. It is definitely chaotic. My cd battino really feel very close to palermo for example and you have to consider that palermo and napoli. They've been together in one of the biggest kingdoms that were in italy. Before unification of the two sicily's and to this day you have a good boat connection very nature whoever connection that That goes every night. And it's really nice to have some wonderful way. It is very very nice so we are closed in many ways. But also i up to say that sicily's even more as even more layers than napoli ass. I mean i come from a city that does a lot of layers i mean. Nobody was founded by six. And then the romans and then we are told the media able time and so on but in sicily you can find also the phoenician influence. We don't have for example and you find all says we said out there. Parts of the arabic influence never arrived really napoli for example. What about the organized crime and the corruption. That is a stereotype of sicily. Is that yesterday or is it still does deserve that reputation of guy corruption. I will say that there is for sure. Still a big influence on the island. What it's different now is that that people have actually recon this problem and try to fight it in everyday life and they Also tried to get out of this. You know parole system to the state and what is parallel system. Are we talking organized. Crime log on crime yet. What we call the government's really ever is a government new paid taxes to nurse the government that takes a you know security money from you and saw him in exchange of protection and they started. That changed. the i understand the plane change it. They've been actually turning points on. This is one big one was nine hundred ninety. Two and two judges were killed. The priest the famous pretty was killed the same year. And this was the moment where people got to find to say enough so and abandons organized crime because before it had a little bit of the robin hood aspect where no way they're hoping nude aspect but maybe these was only at the beginning and then it became more kind of inhabit about abbott. A bad habit you know bed. Bits wendy get in. It's difficult to kick them out those atrocities. When respected public servants were murdered. The people said enough. This is travel. With rick steves for talking with susannah perugini. And alfredo vitale. We're talking about sicily from an italian perspective. Our phone numbers eight seven seven. Three three three seven four to five and gene from demos gotta in maine is on the line gene..

"Remember from the market. That really made it vivid. Well what. I love about italy. General italians is their pride in their work. And i had a lovely conversation with a man in a cheese shop. He had on a white fedora and the white apron. And you know. I i had a little and i had to learn how to speak it because my cousins in piemonte don't speak english. Most of my talion gone now but a pretty good for years ago. When i went there and they loved that i tried to communicate and and they're so polite In other countries when i try to speak the language they immediately go into english in italy. They listen they start to reply in italian until they see my eyes glazed over and then they go into English that's so fun to be in the market and connecting like that. Yes thanks martina for your call. Thank you so much. I know the author of italy for the gourmet traveller end opera. One zero one fred. Plotkin telling about his favourite region to eat in italy right now on travel with rick. Steves fred explains how portico doorways are a signature look in the city of bologna. That's an extra you can hear it. Rick steves dot com slash radio. He read you know when you think of bologna. A lot of americans think of bologna about the cheapest meat you can get. But it's actually not a a low end meet in italy as tell us about The equivalent from bologna's called martha de la memorial is a combination of pork spices pistachio and little bits of the best fat. You'd want to eat three healthy fat and it comes two ways either in slices big round slices or in chunks really the only pork product that can think of that can be served. Either way and mortar delhi can be chopped up and put into pasta fillings. It's a wonderful thing but frankly let's not forget brochu to the parma and the delicious lamis that come from that area and then there's something magnificent cold kula telo Which comes the butt of the pig. And it's made only in a couple of towns one of the school z. Bello it's on the paul river and pra shuto is long. Drying for fourteen months of the leg of the pork in contras cooler telo is aged in moist environments near the poor river and takes on a more tangy but absolutely delicious taste. It's a slightly different part of the pig. And i can take from town to town in emilia-romagna and you'll discover different pork. Products always said that pork is like the music of verdi. nothing goes to waste. And i do wanna commend. There are so many towns. I could commend but to more ravenna and fit outta people. Don't visit them. that much. Revenge was the capital of the western. Byzantine empire it has most magnificent mosaics in europe and dante's buried there and fit out of the me is the great undiscovered town. Obviously the food is magnificent. It was the home of the royal este family but also the borgia family as in lucretia. Borgia they built incredible buildings palaces and so on it has the longest live jewish community going back to the middle ages of anywhere in italy and they played a very important role throughout history and unfortunately many were during the holocaust but it was the jews who on a couple of occasions paid off foreign occupiers to prevent them from destroying fit auto. Firat has incredible payers says. Just if you like pairs through the you'll ever taste The palaces the music festivals. It's a city one hundred and thirty thousand people after bologna has most important university is from thirteen ninety one. It has museum of the italian resistance. It has so much. It's still a city where people go round on bicycles and frankly against very few visitors in. It's only about a half hour from bologna ferrara. That's good to know. Yeah ravenna also has a lot of. It's sort of a baking city. It just feels quiet and peaceful and it's got those sumptuous mosaics that go back fifteen hundred years in Ravenna never forget. You know the roman Portrayal of jesus is without a beard in the medieval portrayal is is with the beard. And there's that cusp in the sixth century or so and and you see church that has mosaics that. Have both the beardless and the bearded. Jesus that are the earliest church chart you'll see in europe and it's just vivid like it was made yesterday in ravenna. I guess that was the capital of the byzantine. Who sort of a leading city in byzantium. Wasn't it it was indeed was the capital of the western byzantine empire. So there's a chance to to get a real dose of the exquisite civilizations of the east. After rome fell by going to ravenna. This is travel. With rick steves. We've been talking with fred plotkin and fred's the author of italy for the gourmet traveller and Fred you know we've been talking about a million romania the region between florence and tuscany in venice and help underrated. It is and how it's all the great stuff of italy just sparkling You write that Something about emilia romagna is is about the lusty pursuit of excellence in all things. It seems like that's true. It is whatever you want to experience and learn about the best of italy. You can do all of that in just that reach. And i'm not a driver but people who like sports course they're made in emilia money of the fidelity's the alpha romaios the best pasta the best cooking the greatest musicians. It's old there and so am i. As soon as i can manage that fred plotkin. Thanks so much.

Because we're all going to go see hans christian andersen and we're going to all go to copenhagen peace come to go over the visit to the island of errol yes. Oh yeah tucson. Tucson tech Tweak owns our next steps. Are in italy fred plotkin. That's been celebrating the magnificence of italian food and culture all his adult life. he'll tell us which region above all others is. The pinnacle of what makes it so special for him. And a pair of italian tour guys share a few reasons why they enjoy going to the island of sicily as much as foreign visitors. Do we're at eight seven seven three three three rick at travel with rick steves. Italy is so popular and everybody seems to go to the same places. Venice florence rome. Tuscany the rivi on more and more important is to challenge to leave the crowds and amelia. Romania might just do the trick. This is one of italy's and europe's wealthiest regions emilia-romagna as part of italy. That includes two of italy's great university cities. Lots of address can history some top notch cultural and culinary pleasures italophile. Fred plotkin joins us now and travel. With rick steves to tell us why. Emilia romagna is one of his favorite places to visit. Let only in italy but anywhere fred fund. Giorno thank you so much for joining us. Well thank you for asking me to talk about emilia-romagna it's the region. I've spent the most time in italy. I went to college in bologna. And when i came back to the states after living in italy for many years i wanted to write a book about it. This was about nineteen eighty one. And i said. I want to write a book about emilia-romagna and the editor said is that your girlfriend. They do not even know that it was an italian region. Things have changed radically in that. Thanks to you. Thanks to food writers. Thanks to me. People know that italy has twenty regions. This region is one of excellence every single thing touches whether it's cinema whether it's opera verdi with from their fellini with from their georgia. Money is from there. It's a that level of quality and most people say to you that the best food in italy is in their home town plus bologna. It's fabulous. I just love talking with you because While i love your book you wrote to italy for the gourmet traveller and much as i am passionate about learning about a culture through the history and the art you are the man for learning about a culture through its cuisine and of course. That's a big part of. I would imagine you're attraction to emilia-romagna we'll talk about food in a moment. First of all you call yourself a pleasure activist. What does that mean and then does that have something to do with. Why you appreciate amelia. Remind so much. They're definitely connected. If i did not realize that myself before certainly happened in bologna when i was twenty pleasure activism to me is about the fact that we've been given this fantastic gift of our five senses and most people barely used them. We taste wheat. We eat but we don't savor we here but we don't listen we see but we don't absorb we'd touch what we don't feel my lightning bolt realization was. Let's take advantage of these gifts and in bologna in the million romani. In general all the senses are activated activism for me comes from activation of the senses and pleasure is a good thing hedonism. We can talk about. But pleasure is a good thing and is one of god's gifts that we want to take advantage of and bologna emilia-romagna seemed designed for that. Okay so let's talk about this regional emilia-romagna we know venice. We know tuscany and florence. This is the area in between right. It is in fact. The rail line goes florence bologna venice but in the other direction near. Milan is the via emilia. Which is a roman road that went from basically the po river. All the way down to the adriatic seat linking important city such as piacenza parramatta reggie amelia modina bologna and then out to the sea. Rimini is on the sea. they're great towns especially fit out of which i love which is not on the via emilia and throughout the region or small. Duchy's town that i love. You may have been there cold custom. Fill out of cuarto in the province of potenza. You have these gyms everywhere. These little towns that are rich in culture rich in agriculture and food tradition and the level of cooking in this region to me is unparalleled anywhere on earth not japan not france. No gathering of places that i can name has better quality cooking day in and day out the million remind you so you're talking about cooking. Is that different than the quality of the ingredients or the Tradition of the cuisine Or do you mean all of that well. The quality of ingredients is essential. Julia child said that great cooking eighty five percent shopping and to me. The greatest food markets know anywhere in the world or in bologna. It's not fancy But for example. If i were to go to market and salad like that tomato in bologna they would not say. How many do you want. They would say what are you using it for and i would say to make sauce and they were sitting. No you want this salad. You want that tomato for sauce. One that tomato to put up to age for the winter would ever every single ingredient that they could point to. I didn't know the fennel could be male or female and how the flavor is different how to select a fish had to cut a fish how she should be served. They're so passionate about every ingredient that they automatically assume you are too and they want you to know everything they know so my education really in cooking and knowledge of ingredients happened in bologna. Now fred does that present. You a little frustration when you want when you want to enjoy something that's Bullen as or parmesan or something. And you're not in emilia-romagna and you can't get the same quality of the ingredients that makes the magic hand made pasta melia. Manja is one of the great gifts to our culture and knowing how to do that is like learning to make strudel in vienna once learned. You can never accept anything less so therefore bologna and emilia manja for me. Turn me into a home cook. And i won't eat out italian food terribly often. I eat out foods that i don't prepare. I don't know how to make indian or japanese food. So that i will dine out with but i would rather cook italian at home and the great thing in italy all over but certainly in bologna and manja. You take cooking classes you learn how to make volume. They're incredibly proud. And frankly they want to maintain the tradition. And if italian young men and women won't learn it. But if people from asian north and south america american elsewhere in europe are willing to learn it better that way we maintain the tradition. This is culture maintaining the tradition in italy in small towns. I've seen there's that passion for this. I'll never forget going to forget the tomba's little town and there was a festival where the older kids were teaching the younger kids how to make a good ravioli and it was designed to pass the the passion and the and the expertise in the flare down to the next generation so it stayed out of my have been recco and liguria where it was destroyed in world war. Two in the only legacy they had was their food and every child in enrico were raviolis are taught to make it so that they will teach the next generation. There you go. this is travel with rick. Steve's we're talking with fred. Plotkin and fred written this marvelous book if for anybody that wants to appreciate italian culture through the cuisine. It's called italy for the gourmet traveller. Our phone number is eight. Seven seven three three three seven. Four to five cates on the phone from austin texas. Kate thanks for your call. I thanks for letting me call in. I'm a big fan of both of you I lived for a year and bologna and it completely altered my relationship with food. I felt like everything shifted in my eyes with food. When i um i got there just in the way you eat food the way you prepare food the way you will sit around the table and it's an event. I was lucky enough also to live with two italians. one was local. And i asked her sister for her recipe for ragu and she looked at me and she said don't do recipes the recipe and she just sort of described her process. And that's still the the same quote unquote recipe. I use today for my ragu which takes several hours and his worth every minute of those hours. But i also wanted to say that. I feel like a lot of people. Don't appreciate bologna as a spot on the tourist trail and it's really a city of hidden beauty in other words things to see rather than to eat right now. One of the things. I think is really remarkable so you know tuscany. Florence and venice. Everybody knows everybody goes but if you walk under the age of bologna you'll see incredible beautiful history that just sort of jumped out on you. Like the piazza couple. The garden the park Margaret does a really beautiful parks on. Domenico is a beautiful church which has to tiny little michelangelo's sculptures in there and people. Just don't go they. Just don't think about when you teach by the way those not cheap if i'm correct that's the famous arcade. Walkways that bologna's noted for sat right there about forty kilometers of them in the city and they are lifesaver in the horrible winters. And then the horrible summer spring and fall the most beautiful time go to bologna so even basing yourself in bologna. It's an hour to florence. It's two hours to venice. It's easy to get everywhere from there. The connections are are very very easy. You know. I think florence and venice are getting tougher and tougher just from a masses of tourism point of view. And you're just part of that you're part of the mob whether the elected or nut in so many ways but in bologna i would imagine. It just feels more italian. Does i feel like. I was forced to learn how to live like an italian because i was living in bologna lie. Sister studied in florence for a semester. And she didn't come back with a word of italian then. I spent a year in bologna. I had to learn italian. I had to negotiate in the market and the food market It was a much more italian experience. And i think getting an apartment living there shopping in the market and making some meals. It's really a remarkable city that i think falls off a lot of people's radars when they think i'm going to go to italy and i'm going to see all the spots but it's just for the food alone. The year i lived in italy. I had one bad meal and that was entirely my fault. Thanks for coming in along with the. Thank you eight. Seven seven three three three seven five and martinez coming in from atlanta eighteen. Hey rick hey fred. I'm a huge fan and thanks to your book. I made a food pilgrimage to amelia. Remind ya a few years ago. I thought i knew everything about it. My grandmother piedmontese. And i know about that creasing but after reading your book i really was a food pilgrimage. I went to modina. I wanted to see how amoco deniger happens and boy. It's nothing like what we have in the stores here in the us and i also visited bologna and it is a beautiful city and it is a city where i felt like i was living as a temporary local i went to the google bossy market And just marveled at the quality of the food. There that martina because i just think these markets in that part of italy just are. They're hard to appreciate unless you're actually there. What's what's an experience you.

"City of bologna called emilio-romagna is a cut above them all he'll explained in just a bit on today's travel with rick. Steves also hear how the sunny island of sicily's favorite getaway italians from the mainland. But let's start today on an island in the cooler. Baltic waters of denmark by the way to these interviews were recorded before the pandemic began as the member. Time industry declined so did denmark's arrow island in the baltic sea today the colorful centuries old buildings of aero scoping are filled with busy shops in in restaurants. And let's have happy visitors. Danish tour guide nina san jose. Teach us in our studio to talk about my favorite corner of denmark. It's the island of arrow and we're gonna talk about why that's worth the visit nina. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so there's a. There's a lot of islands in denmark. And there's something special about ero. What is it when you get to arrow you just found enough with it. Yeah what i what is part of the southern. We call the southern islands because germany is hit. But the neck. Germany's isn't it. Yeah and there. There are several islands down there. And i remember going there with my parents. I was young vacation. Ayler just have something it's the landscape it's the light. It's the buildings it the people obviously and the history to and the history had money. I suppose it had money more. It has a heritage and some beautiful vernacular architecture society cold mazda right where they actually had ships coming out all around the world and before steam powered exactly. The old clipper ships with masks. And it has that sort of old seafaring elegance company. In fact in my favorite museum is a ship in a bottle museum. Yes peter peter peter. He's make these little delicate ships inside inches now. Arrow is spelled eight e. r. o. And the capital city is arrow scoping scooping needed there by ferry from spend borg firm saint book on the island of foon. So if i'm in copenhagen and i've got three or four days in copenhagen who wanted to get to the countryside. How do i get down to arrow from copenhagen either you. We have to rent a car right. And you drive across the island where copenhagen situated. Then you have a bridge. Crossing the store built. All the major islands are tied together. Store built means the big belt in that destroyed belt continues even to sweden connecting copenhagen. And so yeah. That's the side of the other side of company again. I don't get a car and you drive right down to spend bar and older you might. You might have to make a reservation in in the high some but so and the island is small to the summit the island. Is you hike up. It's only a few hundred yard that the the view yes and then you start coasting get to that that voter clipped montclair. Yeah yeah then. You've you feel you have a sense of the prehistoric history. Yeah because you have an and that's everyone maga obviously right first of all. It's beautiful natural site near any go little land and you the team right where the people. Let's say. The vikings gathering would be a gathering of accounting places tribal gathering might with the chief of the the vikings or whatever. And what's very interesting to me is Christianity came to scandinavia around the. You're about a thousand years ago before that people were still having their pagan arctic religions. And you have these tombs and these stone circles of kind of things and is it just coincidence that the churches are built. On top of these pagan holy sites not acquaintances. It no anywhere else. In europe right went win. Christianity is is coming in. And they're they're just taking over the sacred sites right so this was your sacred site but you know what i was because my favorite church. I think when we're thinking about in the countryside there it's got this Long of stone much older burial tomb. You know yeah and that would have been a holy spot. And i can just give romantic. You can imagine people with their torches gathered around that It's amazing nina's facade was born in copenhagen she married a franco-italian and now she guides tours from her home base in southern france. She's telling us about the joys of island in her native denmark right now on travel. With rick steves so the the trick for enjoying the island is to get into bicycle. Get on bicycle. Actually the buses free. They're free compelling. I mean you can if you don't want to bike ride but get a bike. That's my bike really. I mean this thing to do but if you don't feel like biking you can walk and the bus transportation is huge ivan trying so but there's there's a charm in the countryside you find these little farms and they've been the same in the same family for generations and generations. they're shaped like a a you. Why is that to protect. I treated as to protect the animals and the people and the buildings themselves against the wind because it is quite a windy place. We've got the u Facing away from the win- enemy number can be sheltered. And one said he got the animals only am. We have an island. That's pretty flat right so to the window. Which leo's is we'll be present and then baking around you to Little stalls where they're selling things honey and local produce and on the honor system. There's a jar there you want you pay the pay for it but we believe in that so we believe in the fact that you would be honest you would leave the price that says on the tag and that you don't want stealing money or just go without putting any money in the jaw. Does that does that survive in the in the two thousand twenty does it. Does i mean you would be if anybody saw you stealing something or sitting jar. I mean you'll be social outside for the rest of your life. Wes coming the other completely. Because you pay five dollars for you know my favorite part of errol i get.

Your behavior doesn't really affect what boxer into a guy so if he meets you and he's like i want to date this girl. You could pugh on his shoes and sleep with him on the first night and it wouldn't matter vice versa.

When Your Life Depends on the Name of a Bean

"When the French ruled Italy, it was a rough go of it. The Italians had had it. We're talking the year was 1280. There's a famous night they call the night of the pigs. This is not even the vespas. I'm not talking about there's a similar story about Lucky Luciano and no, this is way back in the 1200s, but when France ruled Italy or Sicily, I should say. There were, they put it French soldier in every house. In Sicily. And that French soldiers job was not only to make sure there'd be no Sicilian uprisings, but also to impregnate the Sicilian women there. Make that Sicilian woman have a child that had French blood. And at this point, Sicily had been ruled by many, many countries, like I said, and this particular group of Sicilian men had had it. So one night they all banded together. I believe it was Easter night. And they met and they said, look, Easter night at a certain hour, that's the night you're going to overpower the French guard in your house. And you're going to kill him. You're not only going to kill him. You're going to kill any children he may have sired with your wives. We've got to stop the bloodline becoming too French. By the Italians and the French don't really get along too well. So they did that. They did just that. The hour came and there was an uprising and they killed. Now, here's how this is fascinating. Here's how the Italians could find out if a French man was lying who said he was Italian. Because I'm sure there are many French men who did that trying to pose as a non threat and live. There's one word that the French, for some reason, can not pronounce like the Italians can. And it all comes down to a white being an Italian we call it a cheat should have been cheat to that. I don't know what it is about the palette of French men or women or the way they move their lips or tongue or the roof of the mouth. They can say chicha, like sicilians can. And the minute, a Sicilian herd of French man out of that word, not the way it's supposed to be pronounced, they were killed. Could you imagine your life coming down to the fact that whether or not you can pronounce a fucking bean in the dialect, you need to do it in? Ruthless,

And our culture, everybody who has the name Joseph in the first or middle name gets a phone call, preferably in the old days, you brought pastries over to people's houses.

"There's some debate over this moment. This is not the first outburst in the last few minutes. Is there? Objection. Your objection is hurt. Sorry. Michael Vander Wien had objected to David Sicily needs closing argument, saying he was talking about evidence that had not been entered in Nina Totenberg. Well, it sounds like the Senate's going to do a roll call vote. We have a few moments here. He seemed to be operated on by the rules of a regular trial. We have spent a lot of time analyzing the fact that this is not a typical vehicle trial. This is not and I have to say that even in a in a regular trial It's true that counsel can object. About Argument to the jury in closing. But Rarely do they do that. It's normally they would rather let it just go by and not Um and not Call attention to it. But here This is in fact, a tweet by a reporter. Based on that reporters. Work finding out from left, he says, from Vice President Pence's team that in fact, he did not receive any calls or any enquiries from the president for five days, and that they do not view this and the vice president. The former vice president never did view this as Being concerned about his safety, but rather leaving him out dangling in the wind. That's my dangling in the wind is my those are my words. So it's a very Brutal assessment now reported by a journalist and counsel obviously leaped to his feet to try to say, Well, we don't know that's true. This is just a reporter telling us it's you know, on and No, it's a perfectly valid objection to make, but it does call attention. Through this reporting and almost guarantees that there will be more reporting on this subject as the day goes on, and the evening goes on, and it will become more and more embarrassing for Republicans. When they do that. We want to pause right now and get some detail from Claudia Chrysalis is done. Some reporting can give us a sense of what's happened while we're in Quorum call this began. With Senator Mike Lee jumping up what was his issue, so this likely is going to tie back to another objection he tried to raise earlier this week. We're seeing a little bit of a replay here. He's taking issue with a statement that manager David Sis Cellini mentioned touching on him, and he wants to be sure that the record is clear. He has stated that to the chamber before he was very argumentative earlier this week, when this came up before about this his connection to this trial this Congress Nation. So this is an argument about himself, not the president. This is an argument. It does tie to the president to a to a phone call. It likely ties to this phone call between then President Trump to another senator, Senator in the chamber. It happened to come across Senator Mike Lee cell phone, and so he may be raising issue with that again, weaken, see senators with the defense team right now, arguing how they can make this point. Of order. Heard We heard Mike Lee moments ago trying to have his statement addressed on the floor. So we see Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin animatedly speaking to the defense team right now, Mike Leigh's is a step away from him. Also, they're trying to discuss Way forward in terms of him if he can be addressed, But as we heard, Leahy, the presiding officer said that this is this is not this is out of orders. In terms of these present. This is the closing arguments. This is not when this could be heard, but perhaps they could reach a deal. Is there pausing the trial right now, Nina, you have a point of clarification here. Yeah, well, the defense counsel and I couldn't see if it was Vander Wien or or or Castor. Got up and objected to the tweet by The Washington Post reporter, not Two. The talent, the the alleged comments that were reported about Mike Lee. I think Mike Lee is now trying to sort of Piggyback on that and say, Look, you screwed it up about me. Now you're saying something that's only based on a journalist Tweet. You can't talk about that in a closing argument, and you know it amounts to pounding the table, But it's you know, it's his effective is anything they've got. I guess this is a good moment to remind people that we are in closing arguments that after a good time spent this morning debating the idea of whether or not to have witnesses in the end it that witness's statement was entered into the record. Um, I believe Kelsey Snell was saying it was among those in our group saying that this is a very Senate like resolution to what seemed like a high drama moment. What happened? Well, you know, I did. This is also a very sad like moment of trying to get past the drama. People are upset in the room there. They reached a point today, where they essentially reset themselves. After three hours of drama about whether or not they should depose Jamie Herrera Butler, the Republican congresswoman from Washington, who relayed a story of a conversation between House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy and former president Trump during the insurrection, they Did. There was this threat from Republicans that they would delay the trial for for weeks for months, well calling as many witnesses as possible. There seemed to be an effort to try to avoid any kind of conflict and further rabbit hole down the witness witnessed direction. I just bring her statement in and having it be part of the record and it's come A. It seems to be a central part of this closing argument, though, right? We're hearing it over and over again now that it has been raised, and they're also having arguments now about what other information should be allowed in. The reason we are in the moment now, where they're having a quorum call is because they can't figure out what they're allowed to be talking about. This is they took a break here. Not necessarily because they they knew what they were doing. It's because they don't know what they're doing, and there is a they're trying to sort through a trial where the rules were essentially written and passed by the Senate offer for what is not a criminal trial but a political trial When we just want to mention we're in the midst of this corn called the Senate floor is incredibly busy right now, a lot of gesturing a lot of huddling as people. Discussed this point that's being discussed by Mike Leigh. I do want to bring in Tamera Keith. What, if anything have we've been seeing from the Trump team in handling this early afternoon? Well, they they certainly pushed back on the idea of witnesses..

Polyglot Conjugates Verbs for Hundreds of Clients

"When abe rosenthal is graduated from columbia university in two thousand nine. She entered the job market during a recession completing program in an ivy league. School was a big accomplishment for eva. Who originally from peru and says she wanted to make her dad proud while she was trying to pinpoint her next step. Abe and two friends took a road trip to napa california while on a trip. Eva expressed her frustration and disappointment on her career uncertainty. To one of the friends. Jim gen able to write down three things. She was passionate about on a napkin. Eva wrote traveling children and languages at the time she already lived in eight countries spread across four continents and spoke five languages. Got her thinking maybe she could start a business with these skills somehow after getting home from the trip eva created a google. Talk and brainstorm services. She could offer then researched how to fine tune them for example. She learned that it's extremely beneficial to get credited in order to be an interpreter in medicine. It's not enough to speak the language. Well the certification. At least in this case matters after figuring out what certification she needed avis set up a linked in premium account so that her profile would have more visibility and of course she needed a name on the same napkins us to write down favorite topics. Eva had also jotted down words. That described her hyper polyglot. Nomad poly-lingual influence to name a few looking back at that napkin. Two words stood out hyper and flint. Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent. So after she narrow down the services she would offer including personalized one on one language courses cooking sessions in different languages translating and interpreting and more while she was getting hyper fluent services. Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities. The first clients for hyper fluent came after she plays her profile in different teaching platforms such as university tutor dot com but like so many. New businesses are most successful marketing. Technique has been word of mouth. One of asia's prince spoke about hyper flew to an acquaintance. Who happened to be the personal assistant for an nba player. That basketball star became a client was also through connections that she landed her most significant gigs with the bank. Bloomberg and for some of the wealthiest families in new york city. She's also active on instagram her favorite online platform about that website. It's no longer just to block. A couple years ago she upgraded one with all the features she wanted. And it's now much more personalized scents. Beginning hyper fluent in two thousand. Eleven avis had about six hundred and fifty clients. She currently prophets around fifty thousand dollars a year from macedo also and yes. This is still aside us oil. Her full job is project manager. The international centers for precision oncology. Even with the busy job she plans to keep offering language services after the pandemic subsides. Yes i can't wait either. It's going to happen. She'll also began offering a one to two week. Immersion program in italy called mummy. And i go to sicily. This program will aim to teach italian two moms and their or daughters through immersing themselves in country says that some of our favorite memories have been through her business since she's learned four more languages worked and cooked with refugees in berlin and visited more than sixty five countries. All right i have a suggestion. Here is in a similar place. That able was a few years ago. If you happen to speak four or five languages only four or five right my justice. Don't try to do everything at once. Don't try to offer translation and interpretation and tutoring and cooking classes. It's great that it's been able to work for abe. And obviously she's been doing this a number of years now and she's found the perfect rhythm between her day job on her side hustle. But i think for a lot of people. You're actually going to be more successful in this field. If you're just doing one of those things maybe even for a specific target market like for example One of asia's client bases is wealthy families in new york city. You could say okay. I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot. So you're not just overwhelmed and trying to do it all also. I really loved the google doc method. You know when he got back from her california road trip. She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

"There are people who think this is ridiculous and the Sicily Don't confuse our issues. Let me give you an example. You could make the argument. That here is this leadership of Indianapolis that has done nothing to help. Indeed, nothing to help small businesses. Nothing to help the growth of this city. But they're going to get credit for this. They don't deserve it. I don't say no. What credit? Would I argue that they deserve the people who built this idea of this city who said sports could be so much of what we are, who had a vision for what downtown could be and went about setting it in motion. They're the people who have my respect. You think for a second, I'm going to somehow get upset. I don't care if some of these people get credit, Aiken let people know what happened. I want these business owners in these hotels. There are 3000 hotel rooms booked. I'm pretty happy about that. I'm happy that I'm on leave for two weeks. People are gonna have jobs. I'm happy if it sets in motion a theory amongst the rest of America. Certainly, people want to conventions that you know what Indianapolis could do it safe. Let's go do it in Indianapolis. Absolutely. I see this is good, invaluable. Our political disagreements or rather, our outright disgust. The leadership of Indianapolis and their failures. That's legitimate. That's real. You're not crazy. They are bad people, and they are bad leaders. The mayor's office and in the City County Council. Don't to die. The business owners this Don't do that to them. I want people eating at ST Elmo's on Harriet disease, and I want people eating a Georgia's pizza. And I want people actually going to the city market. To the extent that they're still a city market left. That has been destroyed by Mayor Hogshead. And one has to wonder whether or not this was a plan. Hey, look, it's coronavirus. Let's make sure we start that construction. On, uh On Market Street. Is that one of the construction is not there. Going on in front of city market. Is that where it is? Forget that I forget which street it is at this moment. They started construction, ripping up the street, making impossible for people to cross over. During a pandemic. That's not smart planning. That's a bit of hate. Anything that allows these businesses and opportunity and allows these owners allows his employees and opportunity only favor. Now one of the other things we're going to be getting into. Is this idea of control of the I M p D. By the state so very, very interesting conversation. This is very interesting. Where this could go. And why is it that the state is even thinking about takeover of I m P D. Could it be because the City County Council in hating the citizenry, as they do decided to have a civilian review board that knows nothing of policing has no training. But could decide this tops that and that comes back in the other cops bad at a whim. Had a political whim. Could have something to do with that. We're going to get into this deep because I don't know if I agree or disagree. First I wanna understand why they're even having the conversation. Oh, and the popcorn moment. That's that's worth the price of admission. It's wrong to Santa's the governor of Florida he's making his push for 2024. U Watch What's going on? That's coming right up. If I learned one thing from this great game of baseball, it's that she'll humble you. You think you've got it figured out, you check the standings and you're in last place again. I'm Eric Robi.
