"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 when you like the passage outta go to sicily. Yeah it's all.

"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..

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.

Oh this is like this is for sure thing the thing. Let's play this illicit when men meet you in antic setting. They put you in a box. Either they want to date you. They wanna sleep with you or they want nothing to do with you. It's very difficult to shift from box to box in. 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. If he meets you and he just wants to hook up you could make him wait three months to sleep with you. It's not going to change that. And i get asked this question all the time takes. How long should i make him way with him when you are ready. Waiting to sleep with someone doesn't guarantee that he's going to view you as relationship material so it takes. Are you single. I am yeah recently single actually recently single so this is all part of your world then seattle so fascinating theory broken down like that. Because i'm a guy and i'm thinking to myself. Do i put dates in a box. You deal a lot of guys do. And they don't even realize that i find guys have a lot more resistance to this theory on because i think that they don't want to appear like simple minded or like that they're kind of a one track mind whereas all it resonates with so many women because your behavior it doesn't affect it like you can wait for months and months. You can talk about how much you like knitting. You can talk about how much you love. Jesus in your dog and they still might not want to date you

"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.

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.

Tyson is here with us to tell us more about Cicely Tyson. Miss Tyson. Welcome. It's such an honor to have you with us. Thank you. No. Honestly, if someone were to write the story of your life as a novel, I don't think people would believe it. I mean, you started modeling at the age of 30 when most models air hanging up their stilettos. You got your first starring role when you were nearly 50. I mean crazy. That's life. At least mine. Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember. It's always details. It is amazing, but they was they so impacted my life at the time. Uh, they they affected me in a way that I could not forget those memories and my sister and I sit down sometimes and salivate over them the potatoes and you said her Mac and she's had no equal No one No one and she made a chicken soup that will make you Licked a hair out of your nostrils. Hmm. So So you write about how you kind of fell into acting after a modeling career that just improbable, moderate wing career like you learned literally. Um, a zoo. We said in the typing pool of the Red Cross, and you'd kind of go to the department stores on the kind of the late, Great Lord, Take your lunch hour. That wasn't my favorite place, sadly, just closing its doors. When did you decide that acting? Was your calling? What was the thing that made you say? This is what I have to do. It happened. We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not. I tell you, Uh, I was so started to be a few minutes to catch my breath in order. To question What is this man thought? That we were human. You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures. There were certain issues I have to adjust. And I thought I would use like a rare as why flat floor and you know we can't let you go without talking about Miles Davis. Oh, Yeah, well, you can't because she was part of my life. What do you think you learned from that? I mean, you write about the fact that you all were like the it couple at the time. I mean, you were one of the couples in me. He's a jazz legend. You are a legend in your field. On yet, you know, he had some issues as we as we all know, I mean, he had a serious drug problem and Some other sort of issues. Demons that he was dealing with. What do you think you learned from that relationship? I wish people knew the Miles Davis that I knew. Really because to you can walk into a bookstore and you sing dreams of books about Miles Davis and few people who wrote the books. Yeah. Not only was she feeling they talented, he was brilliantly sensitive, and that is the Miles Davis that people know. I don't know that he was trying to Okay? You have a very forgiving spirit. Well, Isn't that what we're supposed to do? Forgive each other, huh? We don't keep riding a rough truck over a sensitive so you can't do that. People are looking for help. And you look and you see them And you know that they need help. Okay, and you can help them. At least I can. I can always speak myself. Okay on. So what? I realized that he was in deep trouble on that he wanted he wants. He said I don't want to do that anymore. Okay. Uh, So when somebody says that to you And they're asking for help at this. I would try to help them. Before we let you go, Miss Tyson. We have only just scratched the surface of your remarkable life. And I am so honored to have had this time to spend with you. But before I let you go, do you have some advice for younger artists are those just Beginning their careers after you've done so much and seeing so much and been through so much Do you have any advice that you would share Death? Stick with it? Just stick for that. There's a reason why there's always a reason why you keep going in the direction you chose to go. And that is the legend.

The Birthplace of Saint Augustine
"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up. He would answer with one word. I wanna be
The Sodder Family Tragedy: 75 Years Later
"Which applied to mafia members. And those who dealt with them. The fact that george never talked about his past suggests he might have been bound by a similar restriction. The mafia were very active in sicily in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. And it's possible that george ran across them when he was a boy. If so that in encounter might have led him to fleeing to the united states. It could also have been why rafael felt like he had to return to their home country. Whatever secrets is childhood held. George spent the nineteen twenties thirties and forties raising his family in fayetteville west virginia but apparently he couldn't escape his past. George frequently argued with the other members of the towns italian-american community usually about a benito mussolini george despise the man and this put him in conflict with other immigrants who supported the fascist prime minister. It's possible that one of georgia's friends or neighbors belong to the american mafia after all by the nineteen twenty s. Many italian mobsters had immigrated to the united states so when george debated italian politics with the locals he could have made a very dangerous enemy without realizing it in nineteen forty-five five maybe the organization felt like they'd had enough of georgia's anti mussalini statements and retaliated by taking his children. Well it's true that the mafia didn't usually perform kidnappings it wasn't totally unheard of one of the most famous examples was the nineteen seventy-three abduction of oil fortune heir. John paul getty the third in the nineteen seventies. The getty family was as famous for their oil well as they were for their infighting. The patriarch j paul. Getty was a notoriously. Difficult man frugal. To the point of pathology. He had payphones installed in his english manor home. So his staff wouldn't add to his phone bill understandably. He didn't get along very well with his grandson john. Paul getty the third who went by paul. Abo- hime ian teenager who being kicked out of his italian prep school for clarity. From huron will refer to j paul getty as getty and his grandson will be paul. Paul kept a low profile to avoid his grandfather's vitriol but that all changed when he suddenly disappeared in rome soon after his worried family received a series of letters and a phone call from the kidnappers. They said they were members of the mafia and they demanded a ransom of seventeen million dollars for polls safe return but getty said that he had fourteen grandchildren besides john and if he gave them a sent it would only encourage similar opportunists to go after them for that reason. Getty refused to pay in response. The mafia cutoff polls ear and mailed it to a newspaper with their demands. Eventually the family paid the mafia three million dollars though getty himself only paid two point two million the maximum amount that he could write off as a loss for tax purposes. And by the end of nineteen seventy-three. Paul was back within the family. Fold though much the worse for wear. This wasn't the only time. The mafia used kidnapping as tactic in rome. In nineteen seventy five. The criminal organization kidnapped gianni bulgari a famous italian. Who was forty years old at the time. His affluent family quickly paid two million dollars for his return and he emerged relatively unscathed by the ordeal. However the solders were decidedly not wealthy. So it seems unlikely that the mob would have kidnapped their children for money. What's more george and jenny never received a ransom note. That said it is possible that the criminal society could have murdered the solder children in retaliation for something. George did the mafia's. Arcane codes supposedly protect women and young children but they don't always abide by these values take for example the case of giuseppe di matteo in one thousand nine hundred ninety three santino di matteo a former member of the sicilian. Mafia was preparing to testify against them in court in a bid to silence him. The mob kidnapped his twelve year. Old son giuseppi.

"What is the best way for me as a tourist to connect with the Cecilia probably the market if you go to the markets and try to talk to the Sicilians about food because most of the Sicilian are foodies or Italians in general, I'm very proud of their food. So if you try to ask them about the food, and what it's made of or if this is something typical for the region, they will be super proud, and you will be their best friend in no time, and they will make you test everything try anything and tell you everything about this special dish. Excellent. And people think they know Italy, Sicily's a little different. So we're still in Italy where am I going to go that I'm gonna be wondering to myself, am I really in Italy? I think Palermo as the best example for that. If if you're in the middle of Palermo when you close your eyes, this is the way it is for me. I get the feeling that I'm in Arab country. The noise of the cars and the people talking loudly, and you can smell the sea. You can smell those senses from the from the dishes and stuff. It's different from today is really different. Will we mentioned that? There was a variety of influences. I guess we did name a lot of them. There is era influence here. There was the norm and influence there were the Carthaginians who are also Africa northern African influence here as well. As what we think of is more traditional. Talion? So yeah. A lot of different layers in the Allan excellent one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Sicily, I have to think of swearwords. Oh, no. Yeah. Can we talk about that? And still keep it clean. I I will not tell you which swearwords congenital acting Italians swear Lod and Sicilians do that even more and they have one special twin word that they use all the time. And they almost started every other sentence with his once wayward. So we'll know that within our first day in what we're talking about. Okay. And if you're standing at the most beautiful spot in Sicily where you standing what are you looking at me in really is sending at the at the beach of Mondello and looking at the penalty, no mountain that looks like a dog for me. No. Honestly, it's one of the most beautiful places in the world in the whole world. Not only in Sicily. I just love being there. And watching this quiet dog just laying there super calming for me will the next time. Somebody who's listening to show drinks a glass of Pellegrino. They will know that that means pilgrim. So it has been educated as well. Excellent to wrap this up. If you had to summarize Sicily in just three words three words, would you use? These are the questions I said would trip you up because you had let's the show before. So one of the worst comes to my mind immediately, traditional, okay? And another one is exotic maybe contradictory. But I think that's that's exactly the reason that yes. So let's go back to traditional so traditional in what way where am I going to see that Sicilians lob their traditions, and there's so proud of the the traces of those peoples that have been there during all the last centuries and millennia can you be more specific specific tradition, for instance, that I'm going to run into they all very religious, and they they love for example, their patron at Saint and Santa Rosa Rosalia. She is said to have safe. The whole city from the plague. So it's a very important saying for the talian, and they always and they always bright to her. And I imagine there that her Saint feast day is a spectacle. Yeah. Absolutely. And they showcase the statue of on that. India and make like a March through the streets carrying the statue on their shoulders and bringing her like from all town to her little chapel on mount Pellegrino, by the way. Yeah. And they're also very proud of their cuisine. This also part of the traditions. I would say, and then your second was exotic. Yeah. Because it's so different from the rest of it's the end from from Europe in general. That's why foamy Sicily is exotic although it's so traditional and so, although it's Europe..

It's the biggest island actually in the whole Mediterranean when it's an amazing view, and instead of taking the the cable car, you can also have a a hiking tour and in winter if you go there in late autumn winter you can actually ski on the Atma. If that's something you like. It seems strange skiing volcano, but I just didn't go up close enough to one the I think it's quite common in many areas Pacific northwest, for instance, there's all sorts of ski areas on volcanoes guy. Yeah. Probably also didn't grow up in an area like this. It's I think it's a very special experience. I also never skied on the Aetna. I did ski on Sicily though in the mountains. And it's definitely an interesting experience when you can go for a swim in the sea in the morning and go ski in the afternoon because it's good one or two hours right to the mountains, and you can do the same in with the Aetna. So there is a very very nice beach town called Judy Naxos can have a swim there and just then take the cable car the Jeep up mount Aetna. And then ski up there if you're there in the right season is three or four hours from Palermo. So it was always too far for me to go there just to ski. But. It's a really beautiful will Cain. Oh, and beautiful view. And absolutely fantastic. Experience. Next. The next town me. No, it also hasn't ancient Atto. And also the old the whole town is actually Oton. I don't think tau has a new town at all. You can get a room there. But I recommend staying in Catania, for example, just do day trip to tout Amina. This is something you can combine you can stay in Catania go to the Aetna. One day. The next day you go to me. No, you're recommending we rent a car and drive.

The Jesuit church of selling Nacional it the next stop our latest would be gentle, which has those Greek sites. Yeah, exactly. It's called validate Tempe, which is the valley of the temples. And they have the best preserved temples of the munya gay job. You should absolutely go there. Bring a lot of water because he will have a lot of walking. Have you? This is the one where I see pictures of it. And I think I'm looking at pictures of the Parthenon, for instance. But it's really I'm in Sicily. That's it. It's it's I think it's even better preserved than the Parthenon will be not have had the Turks blow it up. We'll place to store gunpowder that. It wasn't good for the Parthenon as it turns out. I think the one that's that looks like the Parthenon the temple of concordia. But there are also other temples, for example, one of hair Klaas or of us, and they're all very well preserved. It's picture perfect sides. If you like ruins ancient ruined if you like history, if you like to take mazing pictures, this is the place to go. Like all of those things. That's why I love this place. Cool are this? They're more that we want to do an Agrigento or do. We wanna move onto set a Coosa. I would say let's move on. Although gentle also has a nice town, and nice churches. I think there is a pretty big cathedral in the city center. But it's not that important. And I think we have enough in our list too. Just move on now. And yeah, the next town is sorry coups. See who's out? Yeah. The most important site in Syracuse, or it's called in Italian Seeda who's up is the creek Seattle also from the Manja geisha, it's I think from the fifth century BC. It got destroyed was rebuild afterwards by the Romans. I think it's really really beautiful for me. It's one of the Massey's of the of the island. Pictures of it. It's quite lovely. And I don't know about you. But I really like the has in general, and I think you can also have you ever done? This like standing in the centre of the don't the. Today. Yeah. I think you can really well do this there to just stand on the center, and even if you just like drop a coin you will hear it everywhere in every single angle off to see. It's fantastic. It's absolutely fascinating. But for the rest also see Cusack is for my taste, not a place that unique to stay longer than you can move onto Catania if you like, but in my opinion, the ole town of Catanha's, also not the most special thing. So I would just like to be based there and go to Aetna. For example. The thing. I wanted to point out before we leave this area is that. So the the city itself is a UNESCO world heritage site along with nearby Macropoulos. There's a series of rock cut out chamber tombs that go back to seven to thirteenth centuries b c so really really old in that area as well. So that's probably the only side that is not right by the sea as I sat before it's the biggest largest volcano in Europe, which is still active and you can go not right to the top.

Welcome to the mature traveler, I'm your host, Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Sicily. I like to welcome the show Barbara Riedel who is coming to us from barb Alicia dot com and has come to talk to us about Sicily. Barbara welcome to the show. Hi, chris. Thank you for having me. And what's your connection with Sicily? Well, my mother is Sicilian. She was born in Palermo in spent her first twenty years there. So Sicily has always the home of my heart. And I always felt a used connection to Sicily. And since I grew up in Germany where my father's from with my whole family. We went to Sicily. A lot of vacation when I was young. My mother never wanted to go anywhere else than back home on vacation. So yeah, I think I know Sicily, quite well. And I've been there. So I can't even count. How many times I've been there? And I just love it will we should say that you are a blogger, obviously since we gave the euro for your blog, which is in both German and. Nncholas which props for that. Who's don't ever get that good in a second language? I appreciate that. So why should someone go to Sicily? It's very unique place during the last three thousand years, actually, Sicily has always been it's been a melting pot people from everywhere around Europe and even Africa came there and tried to proclaim it. There's so many many nationalities have been there and have left traces is very different from mainland Italy from the rest of Italy, obviously and also different from Sudanese, for example, the other big island in Italy.

That'll be coming up right now down in Orange County city of brea near Disney down there and everything there's a push to rename William e fanning elementary school, and it's been the cause of great divide among residents, but the last year and a half those who support a name change claim without any factual evidence to back it up whatsoever. They claim that William e fanning a former brea Olinda school district superintendent had ties to the local KKK chapter in the one thousand nine hundred twenty s however there is scant proof of this. In fact, really no proof of it. Opponents believe there is insufficient evidence to support a renaming dozens of people on both sides of the issue showed up for a school board meeting earlier this month board was originally expected to vote at that point. But the vote was rescheduled for January twenty eighth. So it's coming up this week next week. Before the meaning about forty people rallied in the courtyard of the brave Civic Center in support of the renaming protesters held signs that read time to take action, and we will change it. Speakers were armed with megaphones and made their cases at a lectern. According to Fred Calhoun, president of the Orange County arm of the national association for the advancement of colored people. He said I cannot support a school with the name of fanning. Team change the first name to Dakota that could be could be the Dakota fanning school who could be mad at Dakota fan. But anyway, he said I cannot support a name school with the name fanning we have to get rid of that name. We will take any action that we have to Carlotta Cerna has two children in the brand school system. And she says I can't do nothing knowing that I in our school district named bears a name of a member of the KKK. He's concerned about education, and she said, I can't do nothing. Anyway, Mike Rodriguez an original member of the group supporting the renaming. So the information about Fannings potentially divisive pass arose. From a two thousand eleven Orange County weekly that's one of those little free newspaper type magazines around by Gustavo are Luneau who now writes for the LA times are Lena were at a series of articles exposing possible. Members of the KKK in Orange County using a list. And he won't say where he got blessed, and there's no proof that William fanning was a racist his own family and that list, by the way is the only evidence they have for renaming the school. That's it. There's this list that this guy may had and basically won't say where it came from William fanning, the grandson of the elder fanning questions, the validity of the list because with unknown origin while Arlino has acknowledged the lack of evidence in his original series. He has contended that the offense authenticity were supported because it was used by former Orange County district. Attorney Alexander Nelson to push the KKK out of the county. So that's that's the evidence. That's it. His his grandson is now going through papers trying to prove that his grandfather was not in the KKK. And he says it's very difficult because you hard to go through people, you know, he's going. This guy long dead. He was a superintendent during the nineteen twenties and the like, and so he's long dead. This guy is and there he's going through. He says I'm literally going through paperwork, basically, according. I'm just paraphrasing. It's I'm literally going through paperwork trying to find something where the guy says I wasn't in the KKK. I wasn't in the Ku Klux Klan. So I have no way to prove any of this did or did not happen. And that's what they're trying to do. You can't prove a negative, but because of the tunnel list where and that's the only evidence, and there's no way to confirm how this guy named dot on the list. He is now a member of the KKK, even though through all of his paperwork and all of the historical record. There is no evidence at all. Of him ever being on the KKK nut. But because this guy came out with this list that does not nobody knows the origin of this list. This guy says yeah, we absolutely have to rename the school. This is another example like we were talking about the last segment. There was a short video that showed a kid standing in front of a native American guy with beating his drum, and it made it and the story was that. This guy was trying to intimidate the old native American gentlemen who was at Phnom war veterans. What would the longer video? We find out that the guy with the drama walked right up gotten the kid space and started pounding on his drumming his face in this particular case, there's a tiny list. Nobody knows the origin of the list and other going to remove it honored that this guy in. This guy's family had for generations because his name appears on the list, the origin of which nobody knows. And there is literally zero evidence that this guy was involved in the KKK. This is an example of the society we live in right now, by the way. This is an example, we now you now have to prove that you didn't do something. We again, we talked about last segment as well. Justice cabinet. Not going to rehash that nonsense but Justice cabin. Somebody said something there was no evidence to prove it her own witnesses said it didn't happen yet. He was brought in and had to prove that he wasn't someplace thirty years ago. Can you do that? I can't do that. Now, they have to find, you know, if this guy were a big fat Harry racist, by the way, if this William e fanning were a big old fat area racist, you would think that in some of his information and some of his writings and some of actions they would be able to find some evidence of that.

"So on that level i think you can be completely confident in the cpi in fact i think a few things that you could be more confident in sicily because there is this very strong undercurrent of suspicion or belief from there's a generalized lack of a loss of trust in all kinds of things in our society these days but the comes up so often when i refer to the persistent low levels of inflation that that's only because the numbers have been rigged is it's possible given the what you've just described all these people going into stores all over the country i mean is it really possible to try to to wreak this i think it's it's essentially impossible i think there are ways to critique the cpi but they're mostly about ways in which you think that the concept of the cpi should be different and they're mostly things that would make the cpi lower not higher so i think that the procedure that the bill has chosen to use is one that it has the great virtue of being replicable and simple and transparent and in particular they said what it does is to look at exactly the same product over time and look at how the price changes and the main downside of that is that you don't capture quality change and new goods so for example if you think about measuring the price of coffee you know you're going to be measuring the price of the same cup of coffee over time but then if there's an introduction of a flat white you're not going to be capturing the difference in the price of the flat white versus the coffee you're gonna be capturing the inflation over time for the flat white thereafter but this difference between the flat white and the coffee is not going to be captured so that's what people have referred to as the new good spies with the quality change buys and that's been discussed a lot by various commissions that have talked about the possibility of cpi bias but an important thing is that that's actually something that tends to tends to to by cpi up not down and in.
