"Big fan of our proposition form of government. And here's another reason why I thought Prop. Two Oh, eight was a disaster for Arizona and many many, many smart people agreed with me, not because we don't need more money in education. For those of you aren't familiar prop to await. Was a voter approved piece of a bill or or proposition that alters our constitution, and it's a raising taxes of over 70% closer to 80%. For what they said were the wealthiest in Arizona, which was to me punishment and then what you're doing is you're going after the wealthiest people, so one segment of our population was going to pick up a bunch of slack for education. I think it's a mentally unfair and the attitude was, they kind of they can afford it. And I will tell you that although one person doesn't speak for everyone. I had a person on the show, speaking specifically about prop two away and to tell you how it's a punish the rich mentality. Her. Her words were the difference in the taxation for wealthy people that are going to pay. This is the difference between buying your their kids, a new Porsche or a used Porsche. There's a bit of an attitude problem there toward people that have money. But it isn't that there was a warning that went out. That this was going to adversely affect small businesses because it also affected LLCs or pass through corporations. Most small businesses are those things. I am not an advocate for punishing the rich. But let me explain why this was such it is in my mind such a disaster. That it punishes small companies because it raises their taxes and we were told by the people that were proponents of prop to await. That's not true. That's a scare tactic. It's never going to happen. Well, it did. Um And, uh and and the issue for me is, um That it affected businesses. And I can prove this because the state of Arizona then went back to the drawing board on taxes and restructured our tax codes in order to prevent this huge burden being placed on those pass through corporations. When the state Legislature was doing that. The proponents of prop to await said this change is going to cost us billions of dollars in education. So which was it Was it not really going to affect small businesses? Or was this change going to cost you billions? It couldn't be both. But in addition to that, what's funny about it is the major corporations in Arizona. It doesn't affect their bottom line whatsoever. They're not being taxed one penny with this tax So I was against prop. Two Oh, eight. But I will say this I am also someone that obeys the law. And when a law is passed by the rules here in Arizona, whether I like it or not, it's now the law and that's that's where the chips fall. The Supreme Court in Arizona won't block this new voter approved tax. It does have one more hurdle through a lower court that it has to get through. We'll see if it does on the constitutionality of it. But as for what was in front of the state Supreme Court They sided with the people that were in favour of prop to await. I want you to understand, though how funny these things can be a couple of years ago when they tried to get A ballot initiative onto the ballot. The this very same court said No. This is so poorly written, and it is so, um, um misguiding to people. That it doesn't meet the criteria of getting on the ballot and they threw it out and the proponents from red, Fred said. This is a handpicked court by this governor, and here they are doing this governor's bidding and this is all politics by the court, and they were furious. The very same court sided with them on this once they wrote it the right way. So all of the politicking and posturing in the nonsense that they were blustering about a couple of years ago. It's all put to rest. All they had to do was write something that didn't lie to people. So I'm not in favor of this. I don't think we should be punishing any single group of people. I think we all should pay for education. I think all of that should happen. But this is this is the new law of the land. And this is what's going to happen here in Arizona, it is going to add taxes. It's another hoop for people to jump through. It's going to cost people money. Um And this is now let's wait. Let's give it a couple of years. Let's see if this fixes education. Are we still going to have a teacher shortage? Are we still going to have classroom sizes too big? Are we still going to be underfunded? This was supposed to be the answer to all of those problems. Now we'll see. Now we will see And then we'll see if there's accountability in it because I am in favour of paying more money in education if we can When we can, where we can, as we should. But there has to be accountability with it. I don't know of another job. And you tell correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know of another job that says to you. Here's what I'm going to pay you. So I only expect you to do this much work. Someday I'll give you a raise, and then I expect more out of you. Every job I've ever been a part of. I go to work for someone and I worked my butt off and they say, Wow, you're doing a great job. Here's a raise or when it's time for my annual review, or I go to them, and I say, Listen, I've been working pretty hard and I've been making you a lot of money. Can you give me a raise? I've never been involved in a job where I was able to go to my bosses and say You know what we're giving you. I'm giving you this much work because you're only paying me this much money. I could be a much better electrician, which I was an electrician. I could be a much better electrician. If you paid me more. You want to know why your jobs are going slow? You want to know why we're not coming in under budget. You want to know why we're using more material on these jobs and we're supposed to? Because you're not paying me enough if you paid me more. Then I'd be able to perform better. That's what we're hearing from the teacher organizations. So I think that teachers and good teachers should be rewarded. I think there needs to be accountability for teachers that don't belong in the profession, and I don't believe that's a sacrilege to say it. That's in every profession. We've got the Department of Justice coming here to Arizona to investigate the Phoenix police department to determine if there are police officers within their ranks. That shouldn't be cops. Believe me, there are plenty of people out there..

I'll i'll be able to explain how they differed in terms of operations and also how it differed when we were working to tackle those two threats so andromeda. It's not one button it actually. It was multiple button. It's because andromeda was a malware that was available for sale in underground forums. So anybody could go and grab a copy of the malware and build its own button.

"I'm between people getting allies or parents the on a trip where things get a little bit or people needing to break into their house if they forget their keys. One story in particular. It's not from a bachelor ardy but it's a it's a group travel story So actually was part of this and it was quite the situation. We were all taking a big frank group trip to chicago and books a house and it looked incredible but leading up to the trip. The guy who rented the property from switched us to another house. That sad was even better so we were like great. That sounds incredible. He kind of started getting a little bit distant leading up to the trip and was never sending us photos of the actual house itself. Only the view from the house So one thing led to another and be show up and what was supposed to be. Incredible house was essentially just a construction site reviews. Fun fun i it was just the framing. A shell of a house so we were trying to navigate between language barriers to contact person. We rented from figure out where we were going to sleep that night and is it starts getting darker in the sun was setting. We just felt three dude Ended up being great. We were switched to another how was but it was a few hours of just this feeling of dread about what we were going to do. Next and i think being in a foreign country adds to that element But i think you know anywhere travel internationally. There's always going to be some sort of language barrier or difference in typical booking processes but it ended up being great. we had to find vans and transportation. I would take us down to this other house that we're renting and ended up being in a similar area but at first it was pretty scared pretty scary. That's like i mean it's not worst worst case scenario. But it's definitely like ok. Guess we're starting this entire trip with Front loading a bunch of stress right when we get there when everyone should be getting excited cracking beers and making cocktail. So i that sounds pretty miserable and something that we had done before we got to actual house itself is divided convert. Some people went to go pick up groceries so they came to the construction site. Luckily with some booze that we could take the edge off on god. We had that. But here's a question.

I think that's where like all these issues are starting to come up. We need to be more cognizant of who were offending in the things that can be hurtful what i also. I do think we've reached a point where people are so sensitive about the littlest thing sometimes and it just is very draining.

"Beaver undamaged Averaging twenty five bucks About so so there still is a market there and there's demand for it and and people can buy those belts and make products and in do quite well with that so it's pretty similar to this montana average. Twenty to fifty. I was very surprised because montana tends to have a very light. Colored beaver at the western viewers are lot lighter than than we have here in the northeast and so they tend to get quite a bit lower price however this is you know it could be a couple of people making mets and they really wanted of those beaver and they couldn't find a lot of them so that was good The idaho sale was similar. Could probably similar buyer. They averaged eighteen in a recent sale In one of the recent sales and another one they only averaged about half of that so so again. Presence or absence of a buyer can determine all of that but they're asked the new york and pennsylvania in missouri. They were all generally around eight to ten dollars for beaver. Those were probably mostly going into the hatter market in in those generally Beavers are are sold the buyers are actually selling those two manufacturers who are purchasing them by weight. So it's not they're not really looking for quality. They're looking for quantity. Let's move over to. So i guess that. Just say that if you have a small fashion Small market a niche market. You can do very well with beaver. I think there's huge potential for someone to get into the gauntlets.

Treasures Looted in War
"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.
The Knowledge Lost in Information
"Every single day approximately five, hundred, million tweets are tweeted. Four million hours of video is added to youtube and four point three billion with a B. facebook messages are posted if a single person which are view only information uploaded to the Internet in just the last twenty, four hours, it would take longer than the entire span of recorded human history. The mistake is assuming that a deluge of information means that we are better informed not at all. In fact, a new report by Pew Research found that what they call quote extremely online people meaning those who relied primarily on social media for their political news are among the least informed and most easily deceived groups in America reason DOT COM described the Findings this way analyzing polls conducted from October of last year through June of two thousand, twenty pew found that just eight percent of US adults who get most of their political news from social media. Say They are following news about the two thousand election very closely compared with roughly four times as many among those who turn mostly to Cable News at Thirty, seven percent or print news at thirty three percent. The Pew study also confirmed these people self understanding when evaluated on their current political knowledge those who turned to social media for news scored lower than any other single group except for those who relied only on local TV those relying on a variety of sources including news websites, cable imprint news. scored the highest and interestingly exclusive facebook and twitter users did score higher in their knowledge of conspiracy theories such as that five G. calls coronavirus or Bill Gates plans to inject people with tracking microchips. In other words what someone finds illuminating versus luminosity largely depends on the amount of time they spend on social media. All of this underscores the fundamental myth of the information age that access to information is the same thing as knowing and that knowing about something is the same thing as wisdom and one of the choruses from the play the rock t s Eliot asked, where is the life we've lost in living? Where's the wisdom? We've lost the knowledge? Where's the knowledge? We've lost an information now he? wrote that in nineteen thirty four, what would he say about the Information Day today? How is it possible? Then in an age when the answer to almost any question we have is just a few taps or key strokes away that the least informed among us are those who do the most happening and the most typing as Elliot suggest we've confused information knowledge. We've confused knowledge with wisdom unfortunately, just shouting the truth more loudly or posting in an all caps on social media is not an effective response and fact Christians who see their job primarily is telling the truth rather than engaging people with the truth are often just lost voices among all the noise I'm painfully aware that even with my own children. One Stop on the information bus of their day, and there's a lot of stops. For example, it's far too common for parents to find the faith or moral convictions of their students completely derailed by some anti Christian claims or pseudo arguments that are just well silly. I mean, by claims that any apologised or any theologian for that matter, any coherent thinker could easily debunk in mere minutes. The answers are there, but these students are convinced by a particular set of. Voices, and they're not hearing the others even more often however students or just preoccupied with digital diversions that replace a hunger for finding truth without us. Huxley called an Appetite for distraction. These students like all the ones that were identified by Pew is being very online need more information like a drowning man needs more water. The only real antidote as Conklin I describe in the book, a practical guide to culture is discernment. It's an ability to sort through the excessive information. To identify which true and good, and then to make choices according to wisdom of course, developing discernment is a lifelong process, but it can begin with just a few very simple but careful questions like what do you mean by that? Is this true how does the Bible speak to this? Well God be honoured will the image of God be respected? Is this a trustworthy source? Is this intended for my good and is this helping us love and care about the right?

"Accountable and helped to protect our freedom and our liberty. You've got the legislative branch with Congress. You've got the executive branch headed by the president got the judicial branch and there's pushing pole between them and boundaries between them, and that And that pushing pole helped make sure that Agent Nash and also said ambition made the counter act ambition. And what do you mean by that? Well, the the Legislature wants to take power into its own hands, but that's offset by some of the power of the executive. And the judiciary and that about pushing Paul and second balance is really what helps to protect our freedom and our liberty, much more than any of the the rights listed in the bill of rights. And what's interesting is that there has been a lot in the media that there is a constant conversation about We are ruled. Some of us believe we are ruled by this Kadre off quote elites, people who take themselves to be smarter than the rest of us. And they are the wise men and they know or women. They know how to run our lives better than we do, and therefore they deserve to have the power over us. Because if they do not, we would You ruined our lives and the founders? Of course, In the concept of the separation of powers, they Acknowledged that no, there is not A single group of elites who know better than others how life should be organized and how the country should be run and by pitting Groups, political groups, the legislative against the executive, and perhaps against if that's the right verb, the judicial you end up with the collective wisdom, which is better than the wisdom of any single branch of government. So you end up it's just if you will common sense that the Mohr Branches of government that are involved in the process, checking each other's excesses that produce less excess and better decision making. So the corollary is Glenn and will expand upon that during good part of the show is that when that separation of powers disappears and power ends up being collected in this case because of the pandemic in the executive alone, That's where bad decisions are made because we lose the checks and balances. So now when we talk about checks and balances and separation of powers, one can observe that this Executive authority during periods off Crisis or emergency. Whatever the word is in the appropriate statute or constitution. Tell us about this concept of What has happened in the pandemic, the state of emergency because it's kind of unprecedented. And how has power what happened that all of a sudden? Power came to reside in the executive bridge for such a long period and with such Strong powers at that. How did that'll happen? Yeah, great questions raised a number of fascinating concept that hopefully we'll be able to explore a little more. But Just like with the federal government of the separation of powers. Every state has the same kind of separation of powers. You have legislative bodies, executive bodies and the judiciary. Uh and, um What you have. There is not just you know, It's funny. People talk about these being unprecedented times and oh, my goodness. We've got gonna change things because of the pandemic. Well, the founders and people who study these at the upper part of the country. They were not unfamiliar with emergencies on with problems. You know, they just come out of the war against England at they form the Constitution. And so they did not kind of blindly set up the separation of powers in ignorance of the fact that you could have emergencies that meeting to be dealt with. And So because of that there is just kind of a general exceptions. You know the emergency exceptions to everything in the state and federal Constitution instead. What you have Our legislatures, state legislators will enact live You have some measure of emergency powers to the executives. They recognized that there may be a need Thio act swiftly and efficiently in the face of Ah An emergency, and so they'll have legislation. That kind of lays out. Here's what the governor or other officials are allowed to do here. The restriction bun. It's the limitations on it, and they It's not an unprecedented or something that nobody thought of, and it's not unbowed, did power. The executive will be allowed to declare certain types of emergencies. That's is a public health emergency. Another the kinds of powers but we're seeing here now. Unfortunately, The problems that we're shooting and part of what Plf is focused on is the limits not being respected. On. That's where you get some of the erosion of the separation of powers and the checks and balances that that we need to have and that we expect to have One of my observations about the use of executive power is that obviously obviously the legislative process. Often takes Quite some time. It cannot act on a dime. Although the declaration of war after Pearl Harbor would took a second and Congress acted with remarkable fifth speed regretfully after 9 11 so legislators can act fast, but they are not known to act fast, so therefore, in recognition of the fact That government must on occasion. Be nimble. When states of emergency or whatever the phrases are declared by the executive for that period of time. The executive is then automatically granted powers that otherwise would be nothing short of dictatorship. But what's has been for gotten in my opinion, and Glenn, I'd like you to speak to this if you could. What in my opinion has been for gotten? Is that the reason that we have this extraordinary? Seeding of power to the executive is only to give and this is the phrase I want to focus on. It's on ly to give the Legislature time. To react as legislate is due. That is, it's a stopgap. It is the exception, not the rule, and therefore the government..
Seattle - Washington State Hit Hard By Unemployment Fraud
"The State of Washington admitted yesterday that has lost hundreds of millions of dollars to bogus. Unemployment claims this is the latest and biggest example of an increasing number of pandemic related fraud cases. Npr's Martin Kostya reports. The crisis has created ideal conditions for scammers. By last weekend. It was already pretty clear that something bad was happening to Washington. State's unemployment system Jevon West is an associate professor at the University of Washington Seattle. I get this email from my gain that said Oh my identity has been stolen. Yours might be to you better. Check turns out. Somebody was impersonating university faculty members using their names and social security numbers to apply unemployment benefits and West found that his idea was being misused. This way too. I have colleagues across the university in the medical school in the law school and every single group that I've talked to there was at least some and in some cases many had their identity stolen there have been similar reports from all across Washington and the state now acknowledges that there have been tens of thousands of bogus unemployment claims and just a few weeks. It's lost hundreds of millions of dollars or will I did eight jaw-dropping figure yesterday the State's Commissioner for Employment Security. Suzy Levine held zoom. Press conference about what happened. She wouldn't give many details because a team of federal investigators is trying to track down the criminal network behind this and get the money back but when asked whether the state had been taking enough precautions against this kind of fraud. She pointed to the pandemic and the urgency of the economic crisis overbalanced. How do we balance getting that money out? Broadly and quickly with clamping down in order to keep out the criminals and the fraudsters cybercrime gangs always like it when governments are in a hurry to disperse money and now there's trillions of dollars in aid flowing out of Congress. The race is on. Patrick Peterson is the founder of email security company called Gary. It's been monitoring a major west African cybercrime gang watching as it attacks. The unemployment systems of at least eight states. They're trying to get to the websites to register to fill in the information to fill out claim and get those funds before the people who are actually do them can do so. Experts think the gangs are filling out those claim forms by drawing on the ocean of personal information about us. That's been stolen in recent years. For instance from facts in two thousand seventeen eve of Alaska's a CEO of the Identity Theft Resource Center a nonprofit that helps victims it. Also tracks data breaches. But she says right now. That kind of hacking isn't the priority for these criminals Ria the number of breaches occurring actually fall this quarter. But that's because they're they're no longer seeking out the data now they're trying to monetize it and they're not going after just government money. There's also been a jump. In pandemic themed scams that target individuals for instance fake warnings that you've been exposed to the corona virus to be able to use a nugget of truth and then spend their yard and now because things are so disorienting it does tend to put us in a position where we think well is that true. I mean it could be because I never thought this could happen and I'm living it and that has some disturbing implications if scammers pretend to be say contact tracers then. How will people respond to a call from real contact tracers? Jevon West. The academic whose identity was stolen at the start of this story the University of Washington Center for an informed public. He happens to study misinformation and disinformation. He calls this pandemic long-term state of uncertainty. And when there's so much uncertainty you get these knowledge vacuums. That sort of attract opportunists. Send propaganda that are either trying to push narrative that are trying to sow confusion the trying to just make a buck and there are lots of people trying to make a buck right now around it. Now that his own identities been used for fraud. West says he's resolved to do more at his center to alert the public to Cova scams and the damage they do to our ability to figure out what's real in an unreal time.

"Sullivan. Yes, you are. I just saw. For ABC tonight has I don't know why I don't know why. But remember, Jim and Tammy Faye. Bakker the parents they're doing there's a show on tonight divinely unfaithful. So well, I don't know we should let them be. Hey, man. Whatever your religion is whatever it is. All right before we finish up for this Friday. This story coming out of ABC news. Is bizarre. They're they are reporting that the largest single group of asylum seekers ever to cross into the United States has tunneled, but a border wall that is in place down near Saint Louis. Arizona. At when they Tom they got a wall there because you know, the wall is there are walls in a variety of places along the border. And so it apparently Lewis, I guess you pronounce it San Luis Arizona could there's wall there. So instead of going, however, far they had to go to go round the wall. And the wall there looks like it's steal slats and looks like it's pretty high. So they could not go through it. They could not go over it. They tunnel underneath it. And I'm not talking about two or three people. They're talking about the fact that three hundred and seventy six people. The tunnel. Cut came through the tunnel underneath the border wall. Hundred and seventy nine of the three hundred and seventy six were children, including thirty unaccompanied children under eighteen traveling on their own so. I don't know what's going on the people with parents with children now comprise over eighty percent of the total apprehensions. That's the new thing. The word is out go with a child, and you will get in. So there's a photo of it on ABC news. Were they dug a hole the dirt looks like it's almost sandy looks like it's not that hard to to dig. They dug a big old hole underneath this border fence and. It's twenty six mile long section of fencing. So they didn't want to walk all the way down to the end of the twenty six miles and the border patrol only has three agents patrolling the area because they got the wall there. They don't need as many agents there. So these people without a bunch of agents around started digging at three hundred seventy six of them popped out on the other side and immediately turned themselves in to the border patrol because when you turn yourself in. Then here comes all the protections and the process and everything else they dug a series of seven holes. Only a few feet long beneath the steel border fence. And. Three hundred seventy six of them came through. So meantime back to the caravan. That's coming. And they have now gone through Guatemala. They started in Honduras, they've gone through Guatemala, and they have reached the Mexican border and Griff Jenkins is there. From Fox News. And he's with them. He's on the Mexican side. And he gave this report basically said they just walked on through the Mexican border. I'm standing in the very location. We're back in October. We saw that violent clash between a caravan and Mexican officials in Mexican federal police, but right now a line of migrants in the caravan several hundred that are getting a temporary work visa there registering but early this morning around four AM we walked with a caravan of at least a thousand migrants that have been stationed in the Guatemala side that want to cross we didn't encounter a single police officer or any immigration people stopping us down to the gate. You're looking at it's lots now, but it around four fifteen a m it was wide open. It's unclear whether Mexico officials had it opened or whether migrants had broken down the Mexican officials not telling us, so it is. Definitely a very different message than the last administration Mexico. This one is sending a open arms. Welcome to the caravan migrants, a very different situation than what we thought we were going to get from the new Mexican president who said in exchange for four and eight from President Trump. He would harden this other mortar. Now, we talked to one of the migrants as we traveled here yesterday to this point was we'll Sanchez who lived in Indiana.

Also back at our home base is our colleague from W A M U Patrick Madden. A senior reporter who has been covering the effects of the shutdown in DC, Maryland and Virginia Patrick, thanks for making time for us. Thanks, Joshua, David Borer. Let me start with you. Tell us a little bit more about after what kinds of government employees. Does your union represent well AFG represents about seven hundred thousand federal workers at seventy different agencies around the government. So everything literally from rocket scientists at NASA to cemetery attendance in VA, cemeteries and everything in between. In this shutdown. We have tens of thousands of our members either walked out of their jobs on furlough or being forced to come to work without pay. Can you give us a sense of which of those workers are being locked out? You said you represent all kinds of people are there certain groups of workers that you cover that your union represents that are the most heavily affected. The the biggest group the biggest single group is the DHS employees. We have forty five dollars of homeland security. That's right. We have forty five thousand officers at TSA that we represent there's another thirty thousand bureau, prisons are corrections officers who are working without pay and the list goes on and on and then others who have been deemed non-essential are at home unpaid on furlough Patrick Madden. Give us a sense of what you've been seeing in and outside of. Washington DC as it relates to the shutdown other than a foot of snow when else are we noticing around the region in terms of the effect of the shutdown. I say just it's it's having a really demoralizing effect on the federal workers and contractors that live in this region by one count, you know, a quarter of a million federal workers and contractors who live in DC right now are not getting paychecks. And so I I've I've been talking to workers who say they're they're seeking unemployment. I've I've actually met workers at the unemployment office who were there, you know, there are folks now that are going to food banks to get produce and groceries, you know, other people are trying to sort of figure out, you know, getting help from their credit unions to try to sort through the financial mess that this is creating in their lives. Let me play a quick clip from a woman you spoke with a federal employee who was part of a rally for federal workers in Maryland last week. Listen, it's it's really demoralizing. And it feels like people. Well, I don't know about the general public. But at least the president doesn't respect what we do. I mean, we are civil servants. I think several other people said that we are here to serve the American public. This is the first time in my working life.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here with another classic episode from our erstwhile host Christian Sager. This episode sets out to answer a question that lots of us around the office having backgrounds in theatre were curious about how do accents work. Hey, I'm Christian Sager. An I'm speaking with an American accent. But where to accents come from not just mine, but all of them. I let's figure out what an accent is accents are just a part of something bigger called dialects. And accent refers to the way a person or a group sounds a dialect refers to the accent in the grammatical features, inherent and a person's speech. So an accent is just a way of pronouncing a language every single person. Speaking has one your accent results from how where and when you learn the language, you're speaking in and it gives impressions about you to other people, no one has a single fixed accent determined by his or her experience because we can and do control the way we speak both consciously and unconsciously, in fact, most people change the way, they speak depending on who's listening and our accents can even change. When we have new life experiences, but we're to accents in general, come from, well, primarily two things isolation and human nature, we're social animals, and when we're in groups we like to behave in similar fashion and show that we belong, and we do this in multiple ways language is no different. When groups become distinct the way, they speak becomes distinct too. So if a single group, separates socially and geographically think of group f going to one island in group b going to another then over time they developed distinct dialects, they may eventually even sound like two different languages, humans are widely travelled species. And as distinct groups mingled with others their accents changed combining some traits while losing others. No accent is particularly better than another while you might hear some folks talk about accentless English with they're really talking about our dialects like received, pronunciation or. Or general American which are the reference varieties? They're transcribed in dictionaries and often taught to foreign English students, but they are accents and on the less. So what does your accent say about you? It depends on who's listening. You might have an accent that is associated with a particular place like London, for example. But some people may just associate that with England and in all languages, some accents have higher or lower perceived prestige. Meaning they are often associated with a higher social class. For example, Americans have often looked down on the southern US accent, the southern accent is associated with several stereotypes. But other English speakers say in the UK or ustralia might not share the same prejudice. They will however have their own stereotypes about accents. And these stereotypes won't completely carry over to other English groups either. So if there's an accent joke in a British film, your American friends might not get it at all. These perceptions are not based on anything inherent in the accent. If you play recordings of different accents to non English speakers, they won't be able to tell which ones are high or low prestige. But if you really feel that your accent isn't working, then the good news is that you can change it. You'll have to work at it figure out. Exactly how you'd like to sound. And then expose yourself to that as much as possible, but it is possible. Today's episode was written by Ben bolan and produced by Tyler claim for more on this and lots of other topics.
