"With some of what we'll be leaving in there that we planted earlier this summer We've planted lots of sweet potatoes. So we'll leave those until we harvest in october replanted. Lots of out. Okra and the okra still producing. I don't know if you read. Okra brother j. I know you fancy fellow zone. Eat a whole lot. Oakland nowadays just there but i could eat some o- crawl day lots okra and we grow other stuff too. We grow a lot of cultural stuff. Lots of pampers variety of peppers We grow Gardening eggs a plants We have herbs We grow hibiscus hibiscus and even some cotton and we will. Will we get. We got two big cotton plants at a young man who asked one day You know how did this country get so rich in. What created the wealth. Divide between the blacks and whites and So i said well it's certainly not because you know we're dumb or whites smarter but it has a lot to do with why they brought us over here for free labor. Can you imagine working for somebody for hundreds of years and not being compensated. Not being paid no time off. No sick leave. No pension no wages or salary or nothing and and so cotton was king and so they never seen cut and so we try to be real real hands on with these young via easy young man that you've got to be hands on with. You can't just philosophize so much and and a b. above you know light-touch kind of thing you gotta show him with cut news in fact when the cotton is ready we'll even let them pick it and Sometimes the you know the bold cotton bowl b. o. L. is what holds the white fluffy cotton inside a few of them have prick their fingers and so you know ask them. It's a great opportunity to say well can imagine having to take you know a hundred pounds of cotton per day and cutting his real life. You gotta pick a hot a hundred pounds per day and your fingers getting all In prodded and bleeding from Commingling contact with the cotton bowl and so It is a comprehensive hands on Experience for them and they get to feed and serve allotted seniors in our community so this is on be big force. It's a long history of us planting our fall crops. And then we'll do in late. October will do a celebration of our harvests. And that's call our blessing of the harvest annual of the harvest. We showcase the We people come out. We do garden. Tillers we provide food and provide lectures on on food sovereignty on black farmers and cooperative economics in those kinds of things so this is big force this weekend and so people can come out and they could actually Participate and plant if they wish or We could give them some quick briefings and lectures on wise important that they Know how to and why they should support African american farmers and particularly the mill's place and other initiatives like ours as excellent. So how can the community engage with you a also. The churches are churches. Involved as well Well churches has a wealth of land. First of all. I mean in fact where we look at our land ownership throughout our community The churches are very fortunate. I think friendship which is a local church has over hundred acres of land And for the most part arable And then there are others that have Lots of acres. So we're always looking for ways to expand our production so any church that would be interested in partnering with us allowing us to lease their land from them to grow food to feed their own congregants into educate their own congregants. Because we can't teach we can't just pray and tell them to go and bake for their food to go to the To the food banks and bake for their food so We want church folk As well as unchurched people to come out and In participate and or learn to purchase out whereas our produce to sponsor. Some of our young people in the organization and pray overall position in Prayer does work. Prayer is important and So we we look forward to To our churches being supportive than Not only to ensure that again that the parishioners are consuming clean healthy food but also where they are engaged and in the community in with young people. We get the best of both worlds. not only. Are we growing food. And will we growing young minutes. Well yeah that's excellent now you mentioning minton earlier about really getting a lot of people that was the supporting supporting you so someone wanted to donate to the males that lays how would they do that. Is there our website. Address is www dot though nails place dot org www dot the males place dot org and you can go to our site and we have a donate but there you could You could make a donation on our pay pal website for you could send a check to the males place dot or ill box one six one eight four charlotte to eight to nine seven the o. Box one six one eight four charlotte north carolina to a two nine seven We also have cash out for those of you. That are Savvy tech savvy So there are a number of ways which could donate And you know we just can't take things for granted either you know we've been very fortunate to be able to sustain ourselves without significant funding from From the government or a whole lot of foundations but it is certainly church full spiritual people who could their speech morality into practice and they write checks to us Most of our donations come through. Private. donors people who value and appreciate what we do through some of the proceeds from our Sales and fundraisers that we have We don't just ask people for donations without work in ourselves. And so our young men the elders and the parents they get behind the organization and they really really push and Is beautiful to see our whole team.

"Today to you and welcome to the fresh anointing show. Thanks for joining us on another great day. We thank god for him allowing us to see this day. And we'll back up with you again. I have with me my special guests for today. Is reggie singleton that he is the executive director of the males place there in charlotte north carolina. Welcome to the show. Reggie what's happening readings jay. Are you doing man. I'm good no complaints from the peanut gallery. Oh man it is always good being your presence along with your with your audience from living my best life. It's always good to be amongst you the while man. Thank you for that. We give god all the praise and glory so you you got a big event coming up This this weekend. As a matter of fact i had your I wanna say protege on He was on he added yesterday. I think it was Let me see if i can get this right mishari. Aj's simmons oh awesome awesome. We have to make sure we we help. The family understand. Mishari is a title is not a name yes is a title in in. It means a an adviser it's So it's a it's comparable to what we call a mentor and so It's an african word. It means to council to guide in lease because it's african in nature and has a has a different meaning for us and so it's a title and what that means is he is Been placed over a kingdom so within our large group we have four smaller african traditional african kingdoms in mishari. aj is over the nubian kingdom which covers the areas of commit or egypt as we refer to it as and sudan and so he is responsible for a five young in hit and the organization and he calls them weekly to check in with them and serve. what particular needs they. may we have for three other missouri's and then to elders. The elders are are the older man in the organization. That kind of serve as a As a you know just they provided assistance in assists me and helped me with a a number of the overarching concerns issues in operations that we have but mishari aj as a outstanding young man. You got his his master's degree recently and he is young but brighter. Incredibly talented were so blessed to have him on our team. Yeah he did an excellent job and he seems like he's doing a great job at the males in the as he really is so talk to us a little bit. Tell us before we dive into the but tell the audience load a bit about what takes place at the males the males place kinda. Give us a low rundown. Well there's a Doesn't alive proverb. That says that when a boy is not initiated into the village he will burn the village to the ground merely to feel it's warmth and what they're talking about is there. We as people of african descended have a time honored tradition where we pull the boys aside usually around eleven or twelve or so it. We socialize them. We train we inculcate them on the obligations duties and responsibilities of what it is to be a man and also which is duties are in terms of The issues of problems That he must solve the challenges. He must face the burdens. He must bear to meet the needs of us as a people and so When we don't pro socialize we don't tell that young man who he is and will we don't tell him you know Why he exists and don't help him find his purpose he will literally burn the village to the ground trying to find himself and if we don't teach him who he is and don't teach him his obligations and duties he will look to others to find a place of belonging sense of identity etc. So what we do is draw on thousands of years of time. Honored african tradition will we inculcate and train and instill values at provide life for For our young people for our men and they're in our families and so we teach them to be To be good sons to to achieve to accomplish To go out in the world do good so good To get married to become of father and husband and And then to give back to our community and so that's the basis of what we do at the community and And when we don't against socialize that young man we've seen examples where they will literally burn to the ground. Burn the village to the ground or kill us and so This is an effort to You know we've been very fortunate. Very blessed god's blessed us to provide us with the resources that we need people The elders shari's who've come away To keep us sustainable and so What we draw on that is thousands of years of time honored traditions to do a rights of passage. These young man Frederick douglass also said that it is easier to build strong boys than it is to build a broken man meeting that you must be very intentional about putting in pouring into young man. Because if you don't we're gonna have grown men in a who looked apart who may have suits and ties on lots of degrees and all that. But they're broken and don't understand what they're doing year so we are taking the mantle and with our series about what we do we with these young man every every tuesday wednesdays and saturdays. And we've been very fortunate for years to have good young men who understand the elders and wonderful Black parents in our community. That's excellent and you know we knew when we go back until two awful follows law..

And sometimes it's doing it sometimes just going with what whatever the first thing that comes to mind is and just doing that one thing instead of ruminating unvetted for an hour because then it's too late and you waited ruminated and then you're eating after eight. Anyway feed yourself in the process during his. When i hear you talk about yoga and meditation and breath it. That directly prompts needs to breathe her. It's like when someone talks about drinking water. And i'm like oh it's time for my water but i think he it's. It's so important that we talk more about it because an even even not even in a second. You're like oh. I did just one. So meditations today yes something as simple as breath like can change the pace of your day because so many people they can be perfectly healthy but so many people forget to breathe throughout the day or they're not conscious of how they're breathing. I think that breathing one is should always be in through your nose and out through your nose unless you're doing a cleansing breath in through app through your mouth which is a different story. But in and out through your nose comes nervous system and allows your nervous system to replenish which increases your immunity. And when you allow your nervous system to replenish than you're less stressed you're more healthy and you have more moments of like.

The station is to be just at the cross the road for Nottingham about two miles from straight turn. The railway line finally reached out to him Road at the end of 1885. The station was initially called Harrison's Camp after the contractor prior to the station's opening before being called Clark Lewis station. However, the name was changed to Nottingham Road station in 1887 as the locals decided that it was too far from karkloof to be so named previously Littleton was the last stop the real we changed the lives of the Midland settlers forever. There was a daily postal system and almost anything they needed could now be ordered from Durban or. It's Burg produce from the area could be quickly sent to the city centers for sale and travel between the coast and the interior was a matter of hours rather than weeks or days the railway also led to the development of the Midlands as a viable area for settlement that my opinion is always a great thing. The Railway Hotel was built by a mr. Morgan and was completed at the beginning of 1891 and it soon became the center of social activity at Nottingham Road. A gracious two-story building was set and rolling Lawns the hotel offered guess the Comforts of proper lighting package tennis courts and a Billiards room as well as activities such as shooting and horseback riding at the turn of the century another family took over the the last name Singleton. They would go on to run the business as they saw fit. But Nottingham Road Hotel was always the local favorite haunt weather for a social drink in the pub or for supposedly more serious matters such as meetings of the Dead Nottingham Road Farmers Association. Apparently, the farmers will often only survived home safely because they're faithful horses knew the way back to their Stables off the the system works smoothly until a prankster swapped the horses between the different traps and cards. So that drunken farmers were taken off in completely different directions often the locals would decide to stay over at the hotel especially at the weather was bad. One such farmer a Christopher groom was trying to reach the hotel to Shelter From a storm. He was unable to reach it in time and was unfortunately struck by a bolt of lightning just down side right where the first tennis courts were located in his dead horse were actually discovered some time later when the storm had passed over the bridge just man quite unaware of his narrow escape a hole was found straight through his saddle and it showed where that bolt of lightning had struck. Like all hotels or the history the Nottingham Road hotel is reputed to be haunted. Of course right in the past two guests and staff have reported that the spirit of a woman roams the hotel especially room 10:00 and it's ground this house proud gentle ghosts. Apparently. She was flower arrangements Tiny's away clothes and straightens wedding Legend has it that she is Charlotte a beautiful prostitute who frequent in the hotel catering were soldiers from the 45th regiment in the latter part of the nineteenth Century, her story says that she fell in love with a regular at the hotel a soldier a handsome man ended up having to leave Charlotte at one point to go off and fight in the Bushman Wars. Unfortunately, he was killed on the fields of battle and birth. Made it back to his beloved Charlotte upon hearing the news took to the balcony of her room and was so stricken with grief that she threw herself to her deathbed. Send story right? I'd say that so pretty it's pretty good reason to come back as a ghost. She's not the only one that lurks around in the darkness though God. Oh, no as it would turn out Charlotte. She's just the one who likes to appear the most. Today not he's is one of the Midlands more popular hotels. It's dark and cozy it has a wood-paneled pub with Rory log fires on colder nights and and it offers tasty pub fare and beer on tap while the more elegant dining room doubles as a multi-purpose room off the bedrooms are comfortable in a spacious Garden offers a relaxed place to enjoy a sunny Midlands afternoon.

Climate change: A global solution to a global problem
"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The IPCC is an offshoot of the United Nations that was set up back in 1988 to study climate change and provide the world's governments with the best science about the issue and how to tackle it. An issue like climate change requires international cooperation because climate change affects everyone It crosses the borders of the world, and so not only does it affect everyone. It also requires action from everyone to combat climate change. We need the cooperation of all nations for the collective public good, and it's exactly the same with existential risks. The I. P. C C was chartered during a time when global geopolitics respects the sovereignty of nations. And that has proven a problem for you to take one example. Back in 2007 when the I P. C C issued its fourth assessment on global climate change the body's reports on the current cutting edge scientific understanding of the issue. Word spread to media that the report had been watered down by diplomacy. Saudi Arabia, one of the world's leading producers of fossil fuels in China, and the United States, two of the world's leading producers of emissions from burning those fossil fuels used their influence to temper the report's findings on how fossil fuel use contributes to climate change. To make fossil fuels role seem less scientifically certain. As a result, the public was presented with findings that seemed much more doubtful about the role of fossil fuel emissions and climate change. A doubt that's still alive today, Thiscause not be allowed to happen with existential risks. Climate change is one of the most important issues facing humanity today. Existentially risks are the most important. So how do we create a body that's immune to diplomatic and economic pressures of countries as strong as the U. S. Saudi Arabia and China? The answer is a singleton. Our hypothetical Singleton could arise from an international body organized to study and deal with existentialist. Let's call it our existentially risks Commission. Just out of necessity as the world wakes up to the real scope in severity of these risks, we may give that commission an enormous amount of power override any nation's opposition to its findings and guidelines. Which would mean an enormous change for global geopolitics, but one we would likely feel was necessary. Our Existentialists Commission would need to have teeth one way it might ensure compliance among all nations is through a global surveillance network. We would need to keep tabs on all the scientists who work in fields that pose an existential threat to make sure that they weren't secretly working on designs or experiments the commission deemed too risky to pursue. Same goes for corporations that make products that use risky technology. Our commission would need to keep tabs on everyone really to monitor for signs of a black market, developing and banned technology. So each government would be required to set up the surveillance network within its own borders and the existential risks Commission would have access and ultimate control over all of them. It should probably also monitor each nation's government as well. And we would probably also need to grant our commission with some sort of military or policing power as a last resort with a force that is capable of overwhelming any nations in the world. Or perhaps to make it easier. We would just allow the commission to disband the world's militaries and maintain its own small force it could use to invade and easily occupy any noncompliant nation. With a single decision making body in charge of determining the best way forward toward technological maturity, One equipped with unchecked authority able to monitor every person alive on the planet, and to use the threat of violence to ensure that we all stay in line. In our march toward a safe future. We may just make it through the next century or two and arrive at a point where the future of humanity is a shirt. But as you may have noticed, as I was describing it. Singleton can also pose an existential threat itself. That same global body we create to manage our existentially risks could easily become totalitarian, forming a permanent global dictatorship. No future generation could possibly overthrow And it's about here that you might start to feel like no matter what we do. Humanity is doomed.
iOS Interview Questions For Senior Developers in 2020 Part 2
"And today's episode as part two to the previous episode about IOS interview questions for Senior Developers in two thousand twenty. The article that I wrote S- and this is the part two episode where I'm covering article so in this one. I'm going over questions next question. So we'll start with question number four. What is what is NBC? It's a very fundamental question again. Even though it's very basic question senior developers also need to know about and expected to give more detail on the show more depth of knowledge of such basic questions so NBC stands for Model View Controller. Software Design Pattern apple adopted. It came from small talk. Apple adopted its towards their own. Had has has its own reincarnation of it Model is responsible for data controller is responsible or views responsible rendering the dates and getting input from the user and control are supposed to glue views and models together right and be this coordinator control right at the end of the day. Apples flavor of it is More view skewed towards the view. That's why wouldn't really have controllers. Who Have you controllers what you should know? Besides there's this basics That that I just covered you also need to know and understand that model view controller. Nbc is not your application architecture. That's just a design pattern foot of you and if you want to architecture application especially architectures for scale you probably should go for something something else. Something with more flexibility. Something's more advanced at least. I'M VM MVP COORDINATOR. Design pattern or go for a heavy duty architectures such as viper and ribs but again as a as a senior developer. You should be aware of that so erratic flag that could raise here as well simply not knowing what an NBC is right. What what it stands for. And what that's fundamental Basic design pattern of APP Iowa's Apple Development in general I think they use it on all the platforms but nevertheless I again as I mentioned already as a senior. Dev rather the expectation is that you know. Other design patterns and architectures for further reading. Look at Apple. Apples article on their developer portal. It's called model dash view controller Then ABC's Dotto has a great article Cold lighter view controllers. It's from one of their previous issues of Went UP CIO. Had this Monthly I believe issue of their articles. Then there's another article on a con Lou con Lou. I think that's how I say it that come about massive you controller. Kennedy shoes with NBC. Another one is on a Napa soda actual this podcast inside. Iowa's Dev where and I covered the the issues with controller skull the problem with the problems with controllers another article you could read introduction to n. b. b. m. that's also obviously that article And then another episode of this podcast view models to the rescue As far as I recall Andrew in that episode. Goes over a great example of where? Mvp and could could save your bacon in the overblown view controller. Massive you controller code base and another article could read up on a model view presenter. It's MVP by Martin Fowler. It's on his website. March and following dot com. And as usual. You you'll find those links south. Put Him the Up put the link to the article in the show notes and they're in the further reading for that question. You can find links to those articles that I mentioned. The next question is number five. What do you know about? Singleton's where would you use one? And where would you not Singles Singleton Severi? It's very common design pattern. It'S CONSIDERED TO BE CO CORE. Competencies design pattern and it's used everywhere throughout all of the apple examples and They they actually utilizing soon bilton themselves in the API COCA API that they provide a four us. This jar short answer. Singleton Is a class that returns only one. And the same instance no matter how many times you requested what it really means at the end of the day that you have a type but say networking services and you implement a static or property rather. I think that's typically the implementation called shared or something like that instance and then in there you basically cash that instance the very first time. It's accessed you initials it and then you cash it and that's it. And then every other time when the in through that static property the instances rick. The SINGLETON has requested to return the same instance Singled and Sarah unfortunately anti pattern. They have a lot of issues with them and specifically they encourage global states. The they they really did. Sir and there are a lot of issues with dependency injection they. They really don't help at all with it. They make it more difficult. They you have to tie things to specific concrete types instead of relying and interfaces things like that so and in general even though apple promotes it. I do not recommend using singleton's and I know it's a it's a kind of a debatable topic if you will but there are a lot of prominent articles written about by prominence experienced developers Basically kind of debunking if you will the design pattern than explaining why. It's an anti pattern. So the Rad flak for this question as well you should actually know what a singleton the is and how to implement it and how to work with it even though it's a necessary and or unfortunate evil quite often and for further reading to to kind of get into the details of why. I'm saying it's an anti pattern. There are two resources you could go for. One is actually episode of this podcast. Called Y Singleton are evil and another one is actually similar styles. Single single are evil. It's by you can find this article on Viki Dot C two DOT com. They cover it more. They're in in more details in an an unwrap all the issues with singles. So the next questions number six. What's different between delegates and TV? Oh so this is a this is also quite common question on on. Irs INTERVIEWS THE DETAILED. Yar The cute. Let's let's start with What what is Ki? Ki Ki all right cave your sense. Four key valley observation so delicate design pattern and Kiva observation both are techniques for to establish relationships between objects and delegates establishes and declares using the delegates. You declare one to one relationship using protocols delegate protocols and Dan with Kiva labs operation you declare and establish a many to many relationship using other techniques but mostly. It's a kind of declarative key valor. While the that that's in the name Kiva Observation and your keys likely will be there strings or I believe you could use like selectors or something about for

"There are a lot of democrats out there particularly in the black and hispanic community who vote democrat who are really really skeptical really skeptical gle of progressive rich white people who can't seem to talk the faith message and here comes sarah rix meco saying hey i was with stacey abrams. I was the lieutenant governor. I'm a person faith. I'm running because of my face. She has images of of the charleston church shooting in other shootings and in violence in donald trump and david features a lot in there and she says i'm running because i'm i'm a person of faith but i'm also a progressive so she makes herself approachable to people who don't like the secularist strain of progressivism out there right now. She's tapping into a market that the other democrats aren't meeting right now and it's segments her in a way that the other candidates can't and that's actually a smart move on her part. Can i just tell you one of the most annoying trends in america. Now is the politicization of everything everything's gotta be political the goal and now you know who's joined the fray. Taylor swift fan voted award i i i want to say thank you to the fans because in this video several points were made so you voting for the studio it means that you want a world where we're all treated equally under the the at the end of this video there was a petition and there still is a petition for for the equality act which basically says we all deserve equal rights under the law lie everyone who signed that to push it now has half a million signatures which five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response aw seriously. It's got five million signatures so the white house needs to respond because it's over. No this was something stupid. The obama administration did where if you've got too many signatures on a stupid online petition they would respond and i guess she doesn't realize new sheriff in town but this whole ridiculousness of the equality. Do you know what the quality quality act would do. It would allow boys to participate against your daughters in their high school sports if the boy said they were girls even if they didn't go through transition they would be allowed to under the equality act. That's why it doesn't have the votes and it doesn't even have a democratic sponsor in the senate. Who's willing to try to collect signatures to get it to the floor. It's all for show but i bet she doesn't know what there's a funny story out of out of tennessee that they pulled taylor swift and tennessee because she was coming out for democrat turns out. Most voters didn't like her. Come on taylor. Stop being political. Go back to your old self.

"A._m. Signal <hes> but in watkins ville y'all this is so dirty it really is is in when i was on city council this would just drive me insane and i would raise cain about it every time they wanna raise property taxes in oconee county. They want to raise property taxes coney county and state law requires. You have to have two meetings before you can raise taxes. You have to have two meetings and so that the public can come register their response to the proposal to raise taxes so you knew what oconee county's done over watkins ville they had their first meeting at eleven they have in their second meeting at five thirty and they're voting at six so the other meeting at eleven this morning so everyone was at working couldn't come <hes> they're having their next meeting at five thirty and they've got schedule right before the county commission meeting so they've only got thirty minutes to have to hear from those does dirty awful constituents who don't want their property taxes raised and then at six o'clock. They're gonna raise property taxes on the people of oconee county. They stack correct. That's what's happening here. The deck is stacked on the special election to happen the day after labor day. Everybody's just coming back from labor day. Vacation you got republicans is trying to help a democrat. Get into the runoff to block. All the people opposed to david ralston. This is why this is how the establishment wednesday play dirty like that. Here's the problem. If this keeps up in november judgement day's coming for them judgment day will come for them so if you're in the seventy first congressional in the house district if you do not want to see democrats in charge of redistricting if you do not want to see democrats being in leadership in the state house if you do not want to see democrat in the speaker share if you do not want to see brian kim's agenda derailed by a democrat house in georgia you need to go vote for someone like philip singleton who's going to go take a strong position on david ralston if he gets in and wins it sends a huge signal signal to the republicans that they gotta stand up to roulston so if you're in the seventy first you gotta go vote.

"You have to pay attention because he's running saying you gotta get rid of david ralston. He's running say in. We got a problem. He's running say in <hes> this is unacceptable and he's right and marcy saxon who is the front runner and the independent polling. I've seen dean hayes getting money from david rolston. She won't take a positional david ralston. This will be a race where they will spin a willie media remember. The media wants to help the democrats remember. There have been media reports out there saying oh the timur kratz aren't going to use this issue meanwhile you got to third party democratic group. That's already run in phone calls between district's attack in the republicans publican's for for standing up for dave elston. I mean you're doing the g._o._p. A favor by taking david ralston and putting people people in the house who will push him aside. You're saving the house. Republicans and i don't know that that that i mentioned this but you do need to know this is happening. There's a democratic group. I forget what they're calling themselves. It's one of those those dumb little democratic dame like no justice no pizza some crap like that they they are out running. <hes> <hes> attack calls to independent voters in swing districts around georgia. <hes> i know houston gains in athens has been targeted chuck. Martin has has been targeted. John jones has been targeted. <hes> sharon cooper deborah silk cox <hes> think there are one or two other people who are being targeted and and they're being attacked by the democratic group over david rolston that they're refusing to stand up there refusing to take a position now remember jim galloway did and interview review with the house democratic leader and the house democratic leader said. Oh no. We're not gonna do that. Why would we attack david rolston. That's an internal republican issue. It's not an issue voters care about and guess what's happening. They're using the issue. They're using the issue you well so now. You have an opportunity as a republican vote. If you live in the seventy first house district you've got an opportunity to stand up and have your voice heard. You have an opportunity if you live in. David's dovers house district is this again it is affiliate and <hes> coweta county. If you will stand up and register your vote for phil singleton then suddenly you send a very clear message to the republicans that this is a real problem. You send a very clear message message a very clear message to the republicans that they got to do something and they do need to do something thing. They do need to stand up and take into account what's happening. They do need to stand up and also david ralston fan but look at what ralston again. It's kind of genius. I mean you you do have to hand it to the establishment. You're having your special election the day after after labor day the day after labor day. You have your special election. The front runner waits until the week before the election to release her campaign contribution disclosure reports. Everyone kind of suspected may be raulston was supporter and guess what dirge out he gave her money but but there's a week early voting's already started how many people this is one of the reasons why the post early voting early voting has already started and who in that district knows that this is david ralston candidate mark marcy sacriston who knows that's david ralston's candidate and you got republicans out there helping the democrats turn turn out for the number two spot to lock her in because the democrat this is a republican. This is the highly republicans eat so you you get a democrat in second place and you guarantee the david. Ralston's candidate wins the run off the only way to stop this the only way to rebuke david ralston you as a voter. The only way to stand up to this is to go vote on tuesday may make yourself a mental note a week from from today or go early vote this week. You can go early vote this week but if you live in the seventy first district you go vote on tuesday for phil singleton singleton and you send a message to the g._o._p. This is unacceptable..

"Hello and welcome it is eric erickson here atlanta's evening news on w._s._b. Sorry is trying to pull up the radar and it went to the tornado graph. Don't worry there aren't any. I don't know why that way speak of the newnan area <hes> the moreland area jr west peachtree city. There is a going to be a special election on tuesday. I don't know why they did it this way. I guess they wanted a low turnout. I mean honestly i. I'm guessing they wanted a low turnout. It's it's gonna be the day after labor day. There's going to be a special election. In the seventy first state house district that is david stover see david stover had to leave the legislature and they have called a special election for that seat and <hes> so september third is the election <hes> just so you have a sense of where that is that district is <hes> part of it crosses over part of eighty five <hes> <hes> there around just south of palmetto is <hes> plantation subdivision down that area <hes> eat is the western stern half of lake mackintosh. The west will eight macintosh circle. H estates <hes> true in his in there <hes> that area down there moreland is in there <hes> <hes> that was david stover seat and it's shaping. It'd be very interesting race. Marcy sacriston is probably the front runner for the polling. I've seen she's former congressman. Congressman lynn westmoreland daughter and he's played in a role in the election. They delayed filing her disclosures. I don't know whether it was intentional or not. But it is very interesting. They waited until the very last week to file her campaign. Disclosures and surprise surprise ask david rolston is a donor. That probably has something to do with it. Now the key here. I am told very reliably not very reliably from super reliable sources that certain certain republicans have been helping topping the democrats in that district. Why because there's going to be a runoff. There's a lady leaning. Jill prouty who's running as a democrat and she's consolidated all the democrats behind her. There are three republicans running for the seat. Remember how it works. <hes> <hes> you have a you've got a special election in so if you've got all the people run and they have run off between the top two well the reason is in i am told and again exceedingly reliably from exceedingly well placed sources that republicans have been helping to consolidate the democrats threats for joe prouty is because surpass surprise the other republicans in the race opposed david rolston so it's a super republican district but if you work real hard to make sure all the democrats turn out for just one candidate it and the republicans are divided between three candidates you can ensure that no one gets into a runoff who opposes david roulston as you know you have to give it to them in d- acidy of this i mean it. It actually is a pretty like evil genius plot you you helped the democrat get into the runoff with a republican who supports ralston is being funded by roulston so that the two people who are on have taken the position that roulston needs to go. Oh are shut out of the ralph now. I'm supporting phil singleton and the reason i am the nina blackwood. Everyone tells me is is great but <hes> sh i don't i don't think and based on talking to people in this district. She has done the legwork to really get people out and get people circulated and philip singleton's been other knocking on doors and and i'm telling you if you wanna have an impact it will be a shot heard round the world. It will certainly be a shock to the political system. If those of you down in coweta county in moreland area the true and area <hes> that district david stover's district <hes> oak ridge would valley estates states all the land to the west of lake mackintosh down there peachtree city you go out and you support philip.

"Singleton it'll be Rick for Selo throwing the first pitch here on this continent. And when you look at it, these two games, the specific focus would be they count their important for the Red Sox, especially they need to start winning a game. That's a great point, because there's so much so much fanfare, so many different things that, you know, you can look to as a broadcaster a player coming over here. It's changing up the routine, but it's beautiful. It's London England and there are a lot of historical things to take in, but the reality is these guys are in the middle of their season. And for the keys, I think they can relax and enjoy London a little bit more than the Red Sox Red Sox are nine games back. They can't afford to leave this continent eleven games back. Tell me what you think going forward needs to get better for the Boston Red Sox last year. They led the majors in runs per game. The actual number is that for all the ranking is. And as far as the pitching is concerned, I think part of it would be the guy you starts today. They're going to need impart to pick up that rotation. Yeah. Obviously starting rotation thing that we looked to, to perform better, but the bullpen and not necessarily the bullpen has been awful. But untimely and those important innings the eighth inning the ninth inning. All they've lost games. And they've given away lead going into the ninth inning and blowing games blowing saves blowing wind. So I think locking down is critical and we know that across the board. But the domino effect that can take place, as well. When you have a team that's grinding they're battling. They score runs. And then they go into the ninth inning. And the pitcher the team gives up the lead. It's hard to recover motion from that. There's no question about that established that fact, as far as the Yankees are concerned, they are in first place, play, good baseball, Masahiro Tanaka gets the start there slowly getting healthy. And. It's amazing. I think that we're going to look back at the end of this year. We're guardless of how it finishes for the Yankees say man, it's pretty incredible. What they've been able to do with all these injuries. Four teams that have had at least he'll seventeen players on the injured list the twenty two players this year. They have the best record of any team fifty two twenty eight that have had those injuries at that level. So whether you want credit, Aaron Boone, Brian Cashman, it's a collective effort that the Yankees have, and you gotta tip your cap for these players that have stepped up and perform well the new Yankee this year. He'll he'll be an all star glacier Torres. We saw his abilities last year. And he's continued that this year and Keyvani shell. They have depth. And I think that's a great thing. And the addition of Edwin Encarnacion, very timely at the moment you were thinking when they got, like, well, you got judge come back get Stanton coming back. They did not just kind of cruise thank, oh, we got the reserves stands back on the injured list and Cornell is in a spot. And he is one of the top ofensive. Performers for the last five six years. Yeah, no question. One of the biggest power guys in the sport. We get ready for baseball from London. The first pitch coming up in a bit. We send it back to the studio.

"The filmmaker John singleton died today at the age of fifty one. He suffered a stroke on April seventeenth and today. He was taken off life support singleton burst on the scene in nineteen Ninety-one with boys in the hood, one of the first films to capture the reality of young men living in south Los Angeles at that time. We always trying to find some excuse to shoot some five. What to give shuttle turn? Shown a horn. The shed you'd be doing it to one of the film's co-stars was ice cube who'd been a member of the group NWEA between NWEA's album straight outta Compton and singleton's film with its rap. Heavy soundtrack, hip, hop culture. Became firmly established in American culture, the movie was released by Sony Pictures and grossed nearly sixty million dollars at the time. A stunning return for a film made by and starring African Americans singleton was the first African American to receive in Academy Award nomination for directing and at the age of twenty four the youngest to be nominated for original screenplay singleton went on to work on a variety of projects in film and television, including as executive producer of the 2017 documentary LA burning the riots twenty-five years later, joining me to talk about John singleton is Franklin Leonard. He's the founder of the blacklist. It's an annual compilation of the top screenplays that are not yet produced Franklin. Thank. For hopping on the phone. We're Shirley joining you under some circumstances. But I guess we should start by singleton only directed boys in the hood. He also wrote it screenplay, and there's a story that he was offered a lot of money to have someone else directed. What was the story? You know? I obviously have no direct knowledge of it. I was thirteen when the movie came out. But what I've read as recently as today that he was and he said that he was not gonna have somewhat from and I quote, Idaho or Encino, directing the story of these young black men in south LA, and what I was twenty two at the time when he made that decision. I think it speaks to the thing that for me defined John which was sort of unwillingness to see anybody tell the stories, but the people who knew from whence, they came, and I think that that was a relatively new phenomenon in this business along with Spike Lee who had done she's gotta have it. Just a few years prior. And I think it defined his career. It was one of the many reasons why I admired him, it's frankly, a bit confusing that he's gone what stands out for you about the writing in that script. What was he able to do that was so authentic? I just think that it was offensive, and it felt like these were people that I knew or that I could have known, and they were three dimensional and complicated and had wants and needs. And, you know, at the time that was not something that was terribly present in the film, or or film culture of this industry. And I think that it was the beginning of that becoming more common. And I think that it's it's staggering to think that the person who was a part of that beginning was only fifty one years old in two thousand nineteen and is now no longer with us at the time that boys in the hood came out in Hollywood there were. Hardly, any black directors working, and certainly even fewer who other chance to make studio films. Do you think his success with that movie created an opportunity for other filmmakers who followed? Even if it still taking a long time for a lot of people writing checks to get on board, undeniably, I think that his he had open doors because it meant that that's excess was possible. But I think even more than that she represented for those of us who, you know, even considered a career in this business that it was possible. And that you could do it in an uncompromising way without sacrificing who you are and the stories that you wanted to tell I, you know, I'd be hard pressed to think of a single black filmmaker working in Hollywood today for whom boys didn't have a profound impact in terms of what was possible. And I think he and spike and and a few others where the harbingers at the beginning of a move. In that direction. And and I know I personally will forever be grateful. The other thing that I think is notable that John singleton worked with a lot of musicians, including ice cube and two bucks a couture, particularly in boys in the hood. He curated a soundtrack that really reflected. The sounds of Los Angeles at the time. What do you think about his collaboration with musicians and how he incorporated their stories and their lyrics into the movies? He was making. Speaks to again, the authenticity of the stories that he was telling those cultural environments don't exist without the music, but also defines them, and I think that he was bringing, you know, the music of the culture into the film culture into the broader culture, you know, I think that it raise the awareness of artists, and it raised the awareness of of that culture to a broader world that has since embraced it. But you know, he was early in that regard. You mentioned you were thirteen when boys in the hood came out. Do you remember watching it for the first time, and what it felt like to see it? I do. I mean, I was living in west central Georgia. But it definitely it felt real in a way that other movies that were telling different stories felt and it felt good to see a film that had people that look like me and my family, you know, forty feet high and theater just wasn't. Something that you could do walk into a movie theater and see a story like that. And I think that it continued whether it was politic Justice or higher learning or or rosewood telling the stories of African American history that had never been told on screen before he was doing something that no one else was doing at the time that he was doing it. And it's I don't know. Like, I said, it it is profoundly confusing that he is no longer here. And at fifty one I'm frankly morning the things that we will never get from him. A consequence
Director John Singleton in a coma after 'major stroke'

Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. It might seem like fetuses are up to all that much either than growing in the cozy warm environment that is their mother's womb. And I mean growing from a bundle of cells into an independently living breathing human being as a big enough job. However research published in the journal of current biology shows the third trimester fetuses have vision capabilities much more advanced than previously thought and further they can choose what they want to look at. Researchers from Lancaster university in the United Kingdom were keen on expanding the understanding of fetal site capabilities. We spoke by Email with Vincent read, the lead researcher and professor of psychology. He said we've been able to explore the use of all the fetal senses except for up until now there's a lot that we know about newborn babies and their vision. But almost nothing with fetuses just before they're born the newborn is very good at processing faces and prefers to look at faces over any other shape. So it was logical to explore the development of this preference before birth. The researchers examined a total of thirty nine fetuses. There would have been more. But some of the babies were in deep sleep because they apparently missed the memo about participating in a research study while other tests, experienced poor image quality, the fetuses ranged injustice age from two hundred thirty one to two hundred and fifty two days that's about thirty three to thirty six weeks site is the final sense to develop inside the womb with is staying closed until around station week twenty eight this is because. Will retinas aren't developed until that point. Oh, and all of the babies were singleton's, no twins or multiple pregnancies were studied. Because these safety and comfort of the fetal participants and their mothers was upmost importance. The researchers designed noninvasive attempts to assess the baby's visual capabilities to do. So the scientists shown lights through the maternal tissue read explained the light consisted of three dots. When these are arranged to represent two for the eyes and one for the mouth newborn babies prefer to look at them or than anything else. So we didn't show fetuses of face, but an image that was face like. The researchers used forty ultrasound to measure if and how much the fetus has turned their heads in response to the stimuli. They also showed the same pattern, but inverted so it didn't resemble a face in structure to the fetuses as it turns out non face like dots. Weren't as appealing read noted that newborns. Don't find these configurations very interesting either, although subtle attraction to the face, let configuration of three dots makes a big difference in what we understand about developing sight read said, it means we have this preference. Even before we're born. It's either due to being an eight or two experiences prior to birth. Another major finding of this research is that it moves up. The human visual time line read said we now know that the fetus, actively engages with visual information in the prenatal environment. The head movement was a deliberate movement to track the stimuli that we presented. This means that we can now look at many other aspects of fetal vision the study has laid the groundwork for future delving into feet. Vision because as it stands right now little is known about how much pitas conc- read said a week old infant has very poor focal vision, it's all blurred. The same will be true for fetus a few weeks before birth. We know the premature infants can see shapes lights and details, but that's once they are born, and it could be that. The prenatal environment is different we need to find that out. Reads group plans to investigate whether fetuses can discriminate between quantities are numbers, which he noticed something that newborns can do he said if the fetus can do this to this tells us a lot about fetal cognitive abilities were also keen to look at how the fetus sees motion babies prefer to look at intimate or biological motion. If the fetus has this preference? This would suggest that experiences they've had engaging with their own body may have given rise to these preferences.
