"A man of faith and you're speaking to all these different people, I mean, all they have to do is search you and realize that if there's something deeper, they have questions about that. They can say that to you that there's that you are a man of faith behind your public speaking definitely and a Lotta Times you know whether students at a school or People that are at our organization struggling with their faith they're in a in a in a crossroads in some some shape or form they'll ask me straight up they'll ask me Chris. You know did your faith play a role in you getting through what you've gotten through and? I can't lie to him. I have to say that it did it did in does and it's huge in my life and so whenever somebody asks you a question, it's always Free Game for you to be able to share your heart and your Pash apps. Right. When they opened the door, we get to walk right on through. Owners, I'd love for you to preach for minutes I'm going to ask you A. Maybe a challenging question but I, want you to tell us the truth. Why is it pro Jesus to be antiracist? Crow Jesus to be antiracist. Wise pro. Jeez. Yeah. Why is it a faith move to antiracist? Why does the Scripture meet up with that? Yeah, we'll first and foremost I'm no pastor by any means but. Let's go. Every single shape informed that I can. But when I think about Jesus nothing about Jesus, loving us in dying on the Cross for us always think about people that were you know saying things about him were laughing atom making fun of him and I think about you know Jesus Saint forgive them father for they know not what they do. I'm thinking about people in our history that you know done really really rough things I think now people are saying Chris I shouldn't be ridiculed for those things and I'm so big on forgiveness. But in order for us to forgive, we need to love one another. I think when I when I have this saying love your neighbor as yourself for love is stronger than hate of that I try to share. That's all that all comes from the word of God It's equal say. Chris I I have black friends or whatever they try to say to try to combat those things I definitely think we need to be empathetic because if we're truly Christ like we're GonNa love people and we're not going to allow people to hate someone else based on things they can't control or things that that God has given them like skin color or like their hair texture for their first language. Right? We didn't choose those things. So if you're a believer, you have to make sure that it all Tom your anti-racist and you're not just saying will I've got a person of this culture? That's a that's a friend of mine. What voices should we be particularly black and brown voices voices should we be listening to that that you really respect and and feel like people that are that could teach us a lot about making sure we're doing our part to learn and be antiracist into be for our neighbors and love our neighbors well. I think there's a ton of. People that you could. You could say that are huge political figures or and nor. Is really famous people but a lot of times don't they automatically right somebody off because they're famous or they they automatically right somebody off because of the following that they have on which I don't agree with. But for every single person that's listening they, there is a nonprofit organization that has grass grassroots in your community that has a black and Brown people that are leading the charge and make sure that people are you know being supported equal ways. That that, there's there's anti-racism going on are being taught in your community so I don't want to say a a specific global organization that's doing. So but I WANNA challenge people to look up somewhere look up an organization in your direct city in your town that is supporting people of color supporting people that are trying to be antiracist So I challenge you guys to do that I know in Charleston we have we have a couple and I'd love to. Challenge them way to look where they're at to do just as well. That's a good word. That's a really good idea. Thank you for that. Is there anything we didn't talk about today that you want to make sure we cover I think the only thing I I'd I'd I want people to know is that I continue to speak even though you know things are A little bit different right now with Kobe people are being safe I've done tons of virtual events in for me. I do zero marketing I. Don't send out this or send out that it's all word of mouth people that say Chris Weenie that that message of unity that message of overcoming.

That's how we got here at net that one your you didn't do any marketing one of your friends sent me a book and I loved it. Yeah that's that's awesome.

Yeah, it is specific to to baseball and I think the MLB trying to do a good job of you know putting different policies in place different. Things, a resource in communities that need them but we got some work to be done But yeah, definitely listen baseball and I. I also read an article last week talking about how even though soccer is the worldwide sport? It's not. Played in the US by by all kids, it's it's kind of taken this like you're either an elite you know rich neighborhood or you're not getting to play soccer. Yeah I've seen that in we got a Lotta, the club teams, but we got some really cool stuff here in Charleston, a organization called kicking racism were they basically talk about? Unity and bringing people together using soccer. So I've seen some some pretty cool stuff come out of it and plus my my wife's from Brazil in Travel Brazil obviously soccer is this d sport they? Oh yes. Space boy loves soccer just as well. The thing. I didn't know about baseball until I started watching my van De boys up close is it is so strategic. I mean never play is.

It's definitely a chess, not checkers kind of sport house when their plans, different things that the pitchers trying to do when it's when when the batter maybe thinking one thing is definitely a mind game. Now there's two of you Chris Singleton play professional baseball, and so wikipedia has you pretty mixed up but. Is it true that you played center field that is true. I'm glad you said that because people always are like Chris Forty, seven, I'm. World S You're forty seven I was like my man is not forty seven I know enough to know. I think that's hilarious.

He also played shortstop for his high school need pitches here there Oh. Okay. You got talented breath on your. And my Gosh.

That's exactly right. Okay. So now you're writing, you've written a second children's book. Your life matters is what it's called. Yes. It just a actually just released that information everybody I'm super excited about this, and basically this is a a a story for black kids kids everywhere. But especially towards black kids let them know that their life matters no matter what they have heard before. No matter what they haven't been taught before what I may see on TV? Whatever it may be when to let them know how important they are in this world I think is this I came to me when me and my editor Same Guy David were talking and Watch the video of a little kid who is shooting basketball hoops and they kinda got scared when a police officer drove by and that kind of broke my heart a little bit hit away police officer and I said man saw the same video and then the police officer walks up and speaks to the camera. And Yeah and I I I think. I, want these kids to know how much their life matters because. Officer didn't WanNa harm that kid in any way but I think he was just scared for some reason I don't want him to be afraid. So that's what this book is about. Inspiring them to let them know that there there is matter for the see away when other wall a featuring different black heroes like Harriet, Tubman, Barack, Obama, different different people to have done great things in this country that are African American. I love that and we are one of the things I wanNA make sure our friends no and I. I'll say it multiple times. Today is that we can be a part of the kickstarter but only until only today today..

But what was it that made it so good and healthy for Y'all particularly in your home with your brother with your son I. Mean it wasn't like y'all were just getting to do whatever you want it to. Not at all, but one thing me and my brother, do we have like a little a little home theater type of room where the man cave? So we've been watching every single NBA basketball game. On. One thing I usually do I don't watch ton of TV just because I feel like I'm guilty when I watch TV I'm one of those weird old grace and so I don't really do it too much. But now when the corona virus came always home all the time and my wife is a TV junkie she loves. Every show. So we've been just crushing Netflix shows we've been. You know whatever a on Hulu or TV ads been really fun for us to do that because that's my wife's love. Language. Watching TV with one another and so it's been. It's been great. Okay.

Why she didn't she she she's enjoying it. We also watch loud the. Fixer upper type stuff. My Wife Loves Oh sure. been crushing. Those yeah. I would imagine one of the great things about being married till woman that you were within high school is she knew your mom she did, which is, which is really really cool. We have pictures together that I smile about when I see all three of us together my mom a preacher church before which is really cool. We will not too many people have and I think it's it's it's really cool to think that way I don't even think about it unlike that. Yes she she knew my mom really really well, and so it's it's a blessing that she can teach my son about my mom as well as me. He Yeah Yeah. I just think that has really when you think about them watching the same shows and and then I thought Oh man yeah they knew each other that is so special for sure. and. So your mom preached that Church Yes, my mom was a miniature. She was actually the the the children's pastor for our church, and so we didn't have a ton of youth our church. But what we did was every time did the amount my little white mom would go out and shoot know we have a separate little building for a children's Church and she would lead to children's research now help out and then she would. Preach at our church, some Tom in at other churches she would travel to the area. Do you know what I love about that to Chris I'm sure you've thought about this, but her being in your children's book different. It's like she's she's still ministering kids exactly. That's one of the main reasons why I wanted to keep her in there as a gift to know her legacy but also just to keep things going the way she wanted them to yeah because I just think man she I, don't know that she could of ever dreamed that her story and her name mean even the character name is the same as your. Mom's name would be read two thousands and thousands of kids. That is what a cool legacy you've gotten to leave for her. It's great to think about it like that I haven't even really have that perspective, but I'm glad you brought it to my attention. Okay. Andrew, brother plays baseball too right. He does my brother just committed to play Lander University a division two school here about three hours from our house. And it's it's really cool.

I just stuck around with it. Right I. Think one of my missions in life is obviously get more African American kids. A baseball, the way I did in the way the game I love. But when I was in Atlanta before I moved to Charleston, it was tons of little black kids playing baseball. So I want to definitely continue that mission and that challenge of getting kids that look like me and to play ball again, the way we used to. I also grew up in Atlanta I didn't realize what part of Atlanta. Where y'all and was that before sixth grade before six rates always in stone mountain. So suburbs of Atlanta. Yes. Of course I was in. Marietta. Awesome. Okay. So I know right where you're talking about, tell me why it matters to you to see young black boys and girls playing softball.

We all are together once again tuning in for yet another episode to learn the World's haunted places 4 episode 12 you and I will be putting on our safari gear as we are headed to the coastal province of wait for it off Hulu guitar in South Africa. This is truly a beautiful beautiful beautiful location guys. It's known for its beaches. It's mountains, it's Jose Jimenez that are full the wildlife. It's definitely a must-visit location. If you need a place to stay well, why not look into the office in Nottingham Road Hotel just on Old Main Road legend has it that there have been establishments on this site since 1851. Before that's a long time. There was a not he's in or Tavern situated here that provided a hang out spot for soldiers who were stationed at nearby Fort Nottingham. The soldiers they were brought in for one mission in particular and that was to protect the local farmers from the thieving Bushman who were coming around and stealing their livestock. Apparently it become a real problem in these men did absolutely whatever they could to put an end to it. The overall location at this establishment, but it was ideal. It was actually able to cater to the mini horse-drawn carriages that passed through the area. This was a long before way would even be thought about the First Recording. Thanks about the hotel. We know today indicate that the land for the noughties as locals like to affectionately call. It was bought by a George Irwin around 1889 following the deaths of landowner James Ellis and his sister Jani-King the land being sold by the facts to pay off the siblings the States. What was the price received for that land a whopping sum of 125 pounds per acre. Wow. This was actually mean pretty steep for the time. My guess. It has that it had something to do with the favorable Loco. chicken I mean we have to stop and look at the fact that it's pretty much at a Crossroads where the road to the interior leads to the road that takes you straight to Fort Nottingham door window. He went on to a ranked what he called the Railway Hotel to serve the station that was built at the tiny Nottingham Road settlement. Local farmer and settler George Smith. Yes, Smith s m y bhe he writes in his diary July 12th 1882 off. The railway has it lasts commenced and there is a large staff of men on gallery busy putting a buildings in beginning the Earthworks. 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.

This is like our this is me really conti myself down as a filmmaker. Based in New Orleans after. Noted with aftermath, of Hurricane Katrina. You Watch. These four young men who have always asked rations in charge of desperation. And desperation. Lead. US down the rabbit hole. Was We all know? And hopefully, the goal of the for me as a filmmaker is spire. Out The desperation what could be desperation? Trauma Nation. And that's kind of you know. Kind of summarize the. Trying to do here. That's what the film is aiming to show. I know you're a student of film. So what are the films that are most inspiring your vision of this one like it did you make a mood board or at least in your mind you're like I wanna take a piece of this piece of this a piece of this and make it my own like what is what is what are the fathers of this? And it is definitely I'll. Be, honest with you small struggle with no in class struggle as young black men in our neighborhood. Movie You saw the Cina. Right I experienced things that he trauma neighborhood apart unanimity and also experienced myself in A. Good Adelaide. And a lot of not getting out and so when I got screenplay got invite the screenplay was led by my buddy all. Ready. ACCOST Hurricane Katrina was a tragic thing for. Country, you know we have to your anniversary of the right now and it thanks don't seem to change much in this country right? A sense of. How fasteners? Post the black community or the community more, it hurts other communities because see right now the fan denic, right but even if this story was set. In Flint, Michigan would water was bad or Saturday Chicago is south bothers is going through the struggles. Or set right on Staten Island Faulk, hill either either place. Is destroyers relevant but this one is set a Katrina and and these guys may turn to that desperation. It becomes. A high school, it will lead the films that kind of. Inspired like you know like feelings I'll turn to. I think John Singleton Boys Hood was a great example of somebody trying to get out. Get the situation, the neighborhood itself what the situation was under holding a man I thought John Degree Job John. Nash Story. You Go back to F Gary Gray or set it off. You know what I'm. Trying.

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.

Cloth masks: Dangerous to your health?
"So some rather face masks again and not the football kind Dr Marilyn singleton anesthesiologist and constitutional and administrative attorney in Redondo Beach California so Dr doesn't mask help somewhat that's what the health officials say to a certain extent now there's a huge Vietnamese study from a few years back that was actually the first really good randomized controlled study of math and you don't want to hear this but the penetration of particles through Kwok now with ninety seven percent so they basically didn't stop much of anything and one of the real problems with these masks are moisture retention and moisture actually makes the filtration capacity worst so that's kind of the science of that whole thing and so without moisture in the mask you have increased risk of infection then we kinda look at sort of the personal use of the map Intel me how many times have you been in the store you see people with the masks on and it's kind of dripping down under the nose and and kind of shifting on their face or their touch interface still bunch you got it and trying to adjust the maps well knowing what you know what I told you that there's all these particles that are sitting on the map the more you touch it and get it on your hands the worse it is and the problem with that is it's like seeing people wearing latex gloves all the time and then they never change the gloves will you haven't really done anything one after two hours whatever on the outside of the glove seeks and to your skin anyway and then you're not protecting a person you're working less because the cookies from the last person are still on your gloves so it's this false sense of security that I hate to see okay so Sir do you is there a solution then because people are still going to venture out to buy food they're still going to go over and as more and more states including this one start opening up more and more businesses people are going out into the great wide world so if masks are and it least a part of an answer is it just what just social distancing is that it social distancing I prefer the term physical distance thing so we don't feel felt on social that that is more effective and has been shocked to be more effective than a mask that makes a person feel like they can get closer to another person from the mask has done nothing and I also hate to see these diviner masks and scarves and all this because in a way you it's it's putting sort of perverse light heartedness to the situation and then it takes away some of the seriousness he may get all cute well it's not cute and we do need to be serious about it but we have to do things that will work I guess I just don't trust everybody to do a good job of staying away I mean if you've been to the the market lately you know they have a tape on the floor people still get really close to units like excuse me back up a few feet so why would I do everything I can even if the mask helps me a little and maybe reminds people to where there's two helps them a little a little bit can still be of some help if you can't trust everybody to back up well I think you're right about that certainly if you're going indoors but the real key and the point I'd really like to make is don't wear it out fine you need the fresh air and and again this goes back years back when they put patients with TB outside in the fresh air getting the vitamin D. as well as fresh air and it's shown to be good and the bacteria disbursal is twenty times lower when you're having the amount that you would get on you twenty times lower when you're out in open
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

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.

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.

"I just get quiet and trust what God tells me and I follow his lead. So John singleton was that for us in terms of filmmaking. Will. So let's go back to how you learned how to act was did that come to you naturally as well. Or did you have to work for that? So I studied for years, Regina king, and I were in the same high school, and we became friends, and she's like, I take a couple of acting classes before, and she's like, hey, you should come with me to my acting class. I work with Betty, bridges, and is like okay who's Betty bridges Betty bridges Todd bridges mom, and she has taught so many active. Yeah, she's an amazing woman. She's would you say? Just saying Todd the older brother on different strokes. Yes. Exactly. And she taught me improv she taught me how to prepare for an audition. She taught me how to dig deep and find my motions. She taught me how to break script down, and I really have Regina to thank for that, because it wasn't until I started working with Betty, and watching Regina as young actress that I thought to myself. Wow. This is really what I wanna do. This is home for me. And. You know, I didn't have like the perfect, I didn't grow up in the perfect situation where there was a mom and dad, and there was a plan for college in. There was a you know, a. There was no road map this was survival. This was, I've got great educated parents. But you gotta figure it out. And so with acting I felt an instant connection between my own personal challenges in pain, and putting it into my work in a positive way. So it's very therapeutic for me. And I think you know. The greatest actors are the most honest, actors and. To be an honest actor. I think you have to. Understand what pain feels like what disappointment feels like what happiness feels like you really sort of have to have. A decent perspective on life. And so I really pride myself on doing, honest, work, and the only time where I felt like this is not for me. As when I did a season on NCIS LA it was just not there was no room for me to be honest. Because I didn't care about anything that I was saying or doing. And it was awful. It was God awful. I'm sure I'm gonna get in trouble for saying this. But I don't care. And that's when I said to myself, ok NIA, what, what is it that you really want to do? Well, I want to tell stories I wanna tell stories about black women in the things that we go through in a real way, not in a comedic way in a real way. So I've sort of started to acquire things that stories that I like and developing them, and working with writers and just pushing beyond, and honestly, like John's passing passing away has given me the confidence to do something that I haven't done yet. Because gone are the days were actors can afford to just be an actor for higher. We have too much room right now to create and to go beyond anything that we've done to be great. And although I'm thankful for those opportunities to be on a series where, you know, you get paid a shitload money and you come in, you say what's on the page and you're not supposed to really just just get it done. Get the words out, do it say it it's pure memory. That's not who I am as an artist. I need something to attach to within the material that represents some sort of emotion. I'm not a surface person. And I can't play surface characters. Just taking back present, what does it mean to be honest after? Well. It means that the words are just. A connection to what you want your audience to feel. So the words are they there to tell the story? But if you say the words without honesty, motion, or honest, back story. They're just words and you can watch performances that don't feel authentic.

"So I didn't know what I'm okay meant, and I kept the the entire drive to the hospital. I'm thinking is he telling me, he's okay because he's passed away is he telling me that he's okay? Because he's at the hospital and he's just what the doctors is. He telling me what is he telling me what does this mean? So it may you know, when you arrive some place and you don't even remember how you got there. It was that's sort of what my drive was like on my way to the hospital. And when I walked in the room. He was very peaceful. He was sedated. Is he wake? Now he was not away. But he was breathing on his own. And. I cried. Couldn't get my body in side of the door. I just kind of stood at the door for a minute. And there was another woman there who I didn't know. And she stayed for a little while. And then I was like where is everyone? Where's fam- like I just was so confused because I didn't mind you had no idea what had happened. I didn't know what was wrong. I had no idea what medical condition. He was in. So I asked for the nurse. I said, hi, I'm John singleton sister and names along and I would really love to know what is going on here until the doctors came in. They kind of told me what was happening and in that moment, I knew that it wasn't good. But all I kept doing was praying for miracle. And I stayed. For like probably ten hours. And I called my good friend, Paul hall, and I said, you've got to get over here. And couple of other actors came through Michael rapport came through. We sat in the lobby we had coffee because at that time, the family had asked for privacy in that the that no one be in the room. And I mean, people were calling and I smoke too Regina king, probably a bunch of times that day. And she felt horrible because she was away shooting and. And before I left John's room I just walked over to him. And I I put my hand on his shoulder and I said, hey, John, it's NIA. It's Niimi and the doctors kept saying when you're close to him speak loud, so that he can come out of the anesthesia. And I was like it's me. It's me. It's me. And then I looked at his is in his eyes fluttered. So I knew that he knew in that moment that I was there. And in that moment, I felt a little bit of peace, because I was like, okay heard me, so this is what he means when he says, I'm okay I'm okay I'm okay. And then I proceeded to just go down to the lobby give the family privacy and. Pray that. God would bring him through this in a big way, so that he could continue his journey as an amazing filmmaker. A visionary. Genius. A mad scientist, an actor's actor a technical genius and the first director that and the only director no disrespect anyone else. But for first time director John singleton always knew what he wanted. And he was not afraid to ask for it. And as an actor that's what you want. You want someone who is. He want someone who was sure because that's the safety net that actors need from their directors. Any was very specific. And he was fiery and funny and, you know, we were kids making this movie that was going to change the, the history of black filmmaking. He created stars Laurence Fishburne ice, cube Angela Bassett, Regina, king Morris chestnut. I mean. When you look at that cast of people, but it's kind of. Unbelievable. Right..

"singleton" Discussed on Happy Hour: A Shot of Conversation
"I think it is important sometimes to honor certain ingredients, and by honoring her ingredients, I think that it is imperative for us to honor Mr John singleton, a legendary director writer producer who unfortunately passed away on April twenty nine twenty nineteen at the age of fifty one due to complications of because he suffered from hypertension. Dude. I think that for the majority of Amy one who is black who is aiming in any way connected to entertainment, and that means whether or not you are a consumer of entertainment, whether or not you are content creator, whether or not you are talent or whether you are in some way, support all of the above John singleton has arguably been one of the most influential individuals who has changed the landscape to make an analogy for some people. What Spike Lee was to the east coast is what John singleton was to the west coast. And I think that what they both did is they both connected us as black people in a way that hadn't been done before. Kind of want to have a conversation about about how we're feeling about his untimely passing on and what his legacy really means. And how we're going to honor it going forward. Right. So. We've been seeing a lot of deaths recently indigents may be seems like a lot. But because people are skewing on the younger side when I mean young I mean within reach of our own ages it hits a little different am. I Paris used to say this back in the day. When people that grew up listening to or watching pass away reflected like dang. That's my peer. So puts it makes it more real light to to the point of. It's my time coming our time coming, but you know, that's something that people think about, but you can't do anything, but respect Johnson's work. I always I have a joke about this on stage. And I don't really say the specifics of it like the all the details. Agile about my mom being crazy in in the movie, boys and a hill. Ricky get shot a chest and die. She looked at me. And my sister was like, that's what you that's what I was doing dishes clean the bathroom. Like, I told you. We went to see boys in the hood as a family now, I was all. All of a little kid. Am I Paris were on the younger side? And yes, they watch. And listen to are rated ARA rated. I remember being a young girl elementary school in growing up in Flint, Flint is very similar to south central Los Angeles except our weathering nine as it would. We had gang. Banging culture. We had the we had crack epidemic rip through our community. So saying boys in the hood at that young age put life into a different perspective. From for me, the best way could as a young girl. 'cause I'm a remember leaving there and being like all other this other people's lives to not to say that I grew up in the hood Doboy was my brother, you know, not it wasn't that close. But it was that close. So from a very early age, I felt the impact of his his work. As what the rest of the world. So you know, we can't do not respect his his body of work in the things that he that he's done for black people. And hopefully, and I don't know how they can be done how his legacy can be continued on unanimity unless he left behind specific visions in projects and things that he wants to put in place. But I hope this starts a new conversation with creators. That kind of gives them the the right or the the authority to be on apologetic with your with your creativity. Like he was. Well said. So. Unfortunately, I'm selfishly in my feelings, and the reason that I'm selfishly my feelings without giving you guys all the details..
"singleton" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King
"Everybody is Tuesday April thirtieth, and I'm dedicating today's episode to brilliant filmmaker John singleton passed away yesterday. I'm going to break down a few scenes from my favorite movie of his and speak about just how important he was to the culture, this is Shaun king. And you're listening to the the breakdown. The breakdown. Breakdown. Yesterday was a sad in difficult day for the culture filmmaking definitely for all of Los Angeles. But particularly south central and certainly a major loss for the friends and family of John singleton John passed away yesterday after being taken off of life support prematurely a few hours before he actually passed away. We were told that he had already died, but that was apparently because the family had made the decision to take him off of life support but had not done. So yet John suffered a stroke last week. And while so many people were praying for him and believing they might pull through he just did make it and he was fifty one years young in fifty one is young. It's now it's old enough to have lived a full life, and certainly John did that, but it's young enough to still have decades worth of living in creativity in front of you. I think the law. Loss of John singleton was acutely felt for few reasons. But two in particular, I we all watch John singleton grow up. He was just twenty two years old when he wrote and directed boys in the hood, he was twenty three when it came out. And that was all the way back in nineteen ninety one. He was fresh out of college at USC film school in. It was literally demands I foun-, which is mind blowing because all you have to really do is just think back to what you and I were making when we were twenty three years old to think about how absolutely amazing and brilliant. John was to have written and directed this film at such a young age. And I wanna talk about boys in hood for a few minutes. It's one of my top five favorite films of all time. And you know, we all have top five list like that. But boys in the hood has literally been in my top five for nearly thirty straight years now. Now owned this on VHS for young people who don't know what that is. And yes, I'm serious way way way back in the day. We used to have these rectangle or cassettes that were about the width of a box of tissue and inside of those black cassettes was a roll of film that had a movie on it. Now sounds wild to have to explain this. But my youngest kids, they never really even used DVD's is now all about Netflix and YouTube and streaming for them. So VHS tapes were way before their time, and I owned boys in the hood on VHS owned it on DVD and now also own it on I tunes. I have a poster of the film up in our living room. That's how much I love it, and my favorite film critic the late. Roger Ebert back in the day. He called boys in the hood. Not only the best movie of the year, which was a big deal for him. But he also said it was one of the best movies and most important films in years. Of course, he gave it his coveted four stars to thumbs up and had it not come out in nineteen ninety one. I truly think the film and the entire cast and crew would have all won in at least been nominated for us cours. But it was so ahead of its time. John singleton was literally the first African American filmmaker to ever be nominated for best director. He was the first African American to ever be nominated for best green play in to this day. John singleton remains the youngest person ever nominated for best director, he should have won both of those awards and had the film been made in this generation the whole cast would have been nominated. Now, I've seen boys in the hood. Dozens of times, I'm probably nearing one hundred times and. It never gets old to me. I think it was the first movie ever to show, the beauty and the pain of our families and our community, and it wasn't all pain. And I think that's what we all know about the hood to hood is never all pain. It's never all bad. Let's be real the -hood is hard, but John even in showing the hard edges of the hood. He did it with nuance and care and precision. He did it in little ways. Like in the film. You have these characters Doboy and Ricky the teenage versions are played by ice cube and Moore's chestnut in John showed what it was like them to be half brothers where they had different dads, and they had a mother that was somewhat abusive. But probably didn't know it and all of us have seen that before John showed. How? Hard. It was to escape the hood. You showed how hard it was for parents and children to resist the temptations of the cycle of violence, and John did it in a way that had never been shown on screen before. John singleton showed the bloody and emotional cost of violence without it being retool, but boys hood was so much more than that. I don't know of any film before a really even after boys in the hood had a more beautiful and complex father, son relationship on screen, Laurence, Fishburne and Angela Bassett. We call them Larry Fishburne back in the day. Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett play. The divorced parents of a young son train in John singleton just showed all the beautiful complex nuances of. Of those relationships even just the idea of parents having shared custody. We'd never seen that before. But my favorite parts of the film. It's all of the conversations between Laurence Fishburne and his son from how he teaches his son about the responsibilities of doing his chores to attend talk that he had with them at the beach about having principles and understanding the birds and the bees, and I wanna play a clip for us from that beach scene. Laurence Fishburne again back then we call them. Larry. He took his young son to the beach. Now the film has two versions of the sun. They have an elementary school version of a sun and a high school as version this is the element every school age version of train, and they are just at the beach trae and his father furious styles, which is an amazing character in an amazing film. Name train. His father furious styles just talking and I remember when I saw this scene having grown up without a father just thinking that's the type of dad. I wish I had in. This is the type of dad I wish I could become someday. Here's the same. So tell me leader for follow. Okay. Dan was the three rules break it down. And hey think before you answer. I was looking person you at those specs you. True worst never be frightened to ashes anything still is necessary. Last. Nothing was too nervous. Specked anybody? Judges special. They're like. Yeah. You got it. What
