"Judy the daughter said that judith did live with the warrants for a few years but she moved when she was eighteen and she had to go she said that judith lived a childhood filled with neglect. And the warren's basically took her just to help her out and give them a place to live. Judy says that her parents were rarely home. They traveled a lot giving lectures. On booked. horrors day were studying. These cases and judith would stay at their house and watch over things while they were away. Judy tony also said that. Jews had a long term boyfriend for most of the time that she lived there. She eventually ended up marrying this boyfriend. And the couple would often spend holidays with the warren's as i mentioned earlier all of the started coming out the lawsuit came up and judy and tony believed that judith was manipulated into saying these things against her parents now again. I'm not going to spend any more time on the lawsuit or of the soap opera drama. I will put a link to this article from the hollywood reporter up in the show on our website. If you want to read more into it. But i'm gonna dive into the some of the cases they covered so we'll start with the first country movie now. This movie claims to be based on the true story of caroline and roger parent who bought an eighteenth century farmhouse in harrisville rhode island and then they moved in with her five daughters andrea. Nancy christine cindy in april and nineteen seventy only to find that. The house was possessed by spirits. Or according to the warren's a really pissed off which named bathsheba sherman now as an aside. I'm going to mentioned. The movie was based on the transcripts of eddin lorraine warren. They wrote down things. The family had told them and also their experiences from their perspective while they were in the house and andrea was very clear about pointing that out as well. She wrote a trilogy of books. Titled house of arkansas. So flight that she self published which are based on her and her family's firsthand experiences so anything that the warren's documented was stuff that the family had told them it happened so they didn't get all the details is basically what she's saying like my books basically tell you how it actually happened. There's been she didn't say that they did it wrong. Or they did anything bad but she just wanted to make that distinction at. I'm not going to recount the entire plot of the movie. It's mean if you're interested watch it. It's terrifying about the story. So i the movie makes it look like the parents moved in the summer. When it was nice and beautiful but andrea said they actually moved in during the winter and weird. Things started happening about three months after they i moved in and then christine perrin said that started with bedroom doors. They'd fly open and then bay against the walls in the middle of the night so it was like someone was just walking through the halls Banging like flinging open everyone's stores also in the movie. We notice psyched. I day or the second that they moved in. What's her name. Lili taylor yes. The woman who plays the mother carolyn. She lays down to take a nap and she wakes up and she has bruises on her. And she's like. Oh that's weird. Yeah it's like right at the beginning of them moving in..

"I know you have to go before we end our talk. We always end the show with seven quick questions. Okay they're generally ab- in a rough way to do is communication relating. What do you wish you really understood. What was i wish right now. Wish i really understood The cultural divide in america things like making vaccines politics turning pandemic into a political tool is is really baffling me at this point. How do you tell someone. They have their facts wrong. It's a really good question because the problem with the internet is that it's a great leveler in terms of facts. Because you can. Have you know a hundred thousand incredibly smart and talented and dedicated. Scientists for instance. Explain something scientific and one guy who's a part of your cousins right posts some complete bullshit and both of those things in the course of your day are probably going to be equally impactful. You know to you. That's what the internet us. And and so it makes it really really. It makes it difficult. I i i don't know and i get to the point where i go while i don't wanna give up on you know i don't think about people i don't wanna give up on on on on on change in elimination and And and truth but it it gets. It gets harder and harder to try to figure out ways to explain k. Change of pace for the next question. What's the strangest question anyone ever asked you. Well i would say it's kind of a question One time at the bacon brothers show a woman asked if we would sign her prosthetic leg wilted herds of braised visit. Yes absolutely and there's actually end up being a really caught a very touching and moving story that came from this in effect we've Methods woman and number type. She's come to a few shows. She was sick and in the hospital and had to have her leg agitated and really said specifically that she listened to the music to get her through and specifically to one song. And i can tell you as a songwriter. You know if anybody if you write a song and anybody says that it affected them at all and two wonderful story. Yeah yeah okay. How do you stop a compulsive talker We'll have you stopped me in you. Know rank is one year Let's see yet. Oh wow that is. That's a really good question. Oh my god. I can't tell you how many situations i bid where it's in the question. Suppose you know how to do it. I'm not sure rhino added do it. Either i don't know how to do because sometimes people get one a loop. I've tried in the past sort of like reverse psychology and sorta taken the approach of saying. Well tell me more about that. That's interesting approach did it. Every i've tried it. No it doesn't work it off in double or triple double trip. The america creative idea like that okay. Let's say you're sitting at a dinner table at dinner party sitting next to someone who you don't know. How do you strike up a genuine conversation with that person. Oh i i'm i am very very good and very interested in hearing about people and i will say aware you from tell me about your family and most people are pretty ready to to eventually go deep in. I i enjoy that. I i i really do. I know that with the cure Whenever we're with couples. The surefire goto conversation starter is. How did you guys meet. Sometimes breaks bad what well like well. They immediately see that they have different versions of the fact that they have these different versions makes them increasingly more annoyed with each other. There's been a couple of times when we thought okay. I give these guys. Three months tops. I do only because we ask that question. That's funny you got. You got the rolling on the wrong with the f. What gives you confidence. Oh i don't really know where my confidence comes from. I think that if i knew i would be able to tap into it and turn it on like a switch. There's two ways of looking at Confidence confidence in one one is it's just Cockiness you know. I think that certainly as a young man. I had a lot of that But it wanes daily. You know and i have to figure out a way to get it back but i don't really know exactly how i access it very interesting answer and i can identify with a lot of that last question. What book changed your life. You know it's it's it's. It's funny. But i i wrote a book which probably by today's standards would be looked down upon. I would probably have to read it again but it was the book iron john. I don't know that what is it. It was a book about men in a book about was kind of leaning. It was sort of like a post feminist book. Kind of leading into the idea that The industrial revolution destroyed The idea of apprenticeship which was an important part of becoming a man a A rite of passage. The we add that that once the industrial revolution went away. People started moving away moving away from home. Men were really going through a a rite of passage anymore than book. Talks a lot about the existence of different mythological tropes about Manhood but one of the things that i always remember from the book was that in mythology. There is this idea that the prince always has to steal the key from underneath. The queen is mothers of bet in that the key yes sneak in at night in reach under the bed without waking up his mother and steel this key. That's going to unlock. You know the golden box or whatever it wasn't it's something that this gets repeated again and again and again at all these mythological stories and that is the fundamental breaking away of The the the apron strings. And i never heard that myth..

Yeah carolines asked me she said. How can you when you're writing. Something how come you play it over and over and over yet. And i said well yeah. That's exactly it. And and one of the risks of writing something at recording it and then taking it out and touring with is that all of a sudden you know you're in des moines man. You end you the song.

Patriot dot com slash clear and vivid. This is clear and vivid. Now back to my conversation with kevin bacon. I was thinking of what lebed schreiber said when we talked on this show about how the combination of inspiration and technique the things you have to remember technically when you're acting and the things that you have to be overcome by without knowing in advance what they're going to be the inspiration. He said an interesting thing about that. And i wondered about what your reaction to it is because he was talking about it as someone who had played the clarinet i think professionally as a young man so he was a musician. And you're a musician. And he said that combining those two things inspiration and the hardcore technique is a lot like making music. I absolutely agree with that For instance if i write something and then i start to play it with the band and the first few times through barakei figuring it out at you know we're kind of stepping on each other's toes sometimes and but then eventually caught up it hits the sweet spot and it really really. It's overuse word really is true really starts to grew in all of a sudden you You find something new a lotta times for me. It's finding something new in the malir finding something new in the That is going to just feel interesting. And it's fired. And i feel the same way about about acting At about certainly on the stage. But but but filmmaking to i think the comparatively if we're talking about music when i look at Working in the studio recording. I think that's very much akin to making a film or television thing because you have take to you're in a controlled environment you Have gotten a chance to rehearse. Do a master. Now you're coming in you got coverage you got all this kind of stuff. And there's a lotta gear around and and but you wanna hold onto the the ability even if you have all that technique which comes from a lifetime of living on the set knowing what cameras do lights and how the whole process of the day is gonna go.

"All right. So Audrey got home from her job. Her jog no. Not the job at the job. She found Chris, who had not been there before. Okay. Standing there completely naked. Back, hey, baby. Don't you want some of the house? Standing there completely naked. Holding a butcher knife. And this went from bad porn to American psycho very quickly. Yes, yes. I don't understand how we reach this point. This is why I watch these things. Or read these things. He had shaved his entire body. I don't know what's going on. It sounds like he's planning a murderer. And because did you ever see that movie tend to midnight, this just reminds me of that? Charles Bronson back in the 80s, where this dude was killing nurses, but he would do it completely naked. Oh, interesting. Yeah, except for he had pubes because they did show the dangly bits. And he didn't shave his head. So he could have left air. So I don't know why he. Yeah, hello, that even more probable that you're going to leave. Right. Anything shed. So, okay, so he's standing there completely naked, holding a butcher knife, and he rushed at her and forced her into the garage through their interior. Forced her into the garage, and there was a blanket in there. And he forced her face down. He tried to rape her anally. With the knife at her throat. Oh, I thought you were going to see with the knife. And I was like, oh my God, no. Okay. No. I would have done it for that. No. No, the knife was at her throat. Her throat. He then stood up and told her that he was going to call her ex-boyfriend, which he was sure. She was having an affair with. The dude lived in Kansas. He was sure they were having an affair. She was going to call this ex-boyfriend in Kansas and force him to listen as she died. That's what he tells her. Psycho. He kept accusing her of cheating on him with this guy, and he wanted to know who the real father was. Of their firstborn malachi. She kept telling him it's you. Right. You are the father. And he didn't believe her, and she said he just looked at her. And then he put the hammer. Oh, no. Didn't put a hammer down. He hadn't picked it up yet. Hold on. He put the knife down and picked up the hammer. Oh my God. He hit her four times. Twice on each side of the head. She was still completely conscious. She was hurting. Oh, yeah. Then he doused her with gasoline. Oh my God. She could taste it in her mouth. Ew. He lit a candle. A lovely candle that she had bought. She remembered buying this candle for Christmas or something. Like it was a nice scent. Oh my God. And he just tossed it at her, like he was tossing her the mail. Jesus. She went up in flames. Oh, shit. She was conscious through this entire thing. And she specifically remembered a moment when she was sure she was not going to. She was like, I'm going to die. But she pictured her boys as orphans. And. Found the will to not only live, but to get help. She was engulfed in flames. I can not stress this enough. God. While on fire, she managed to pull up the garage door. Manually, Chris had run into the house. After he set her on fire, he ran into the house. Underwear on in case somebody sees me. I mean, if someone comes by, I'm sure someone will got a look decent. So a neighbor spotted her. From across the street, ran over, put the flames out, and called 9-1-1, and they told her they told the neighbor to get her into a shower which I did not know this. I guess, apparently you were supposed to do that? So they told her to put her in a shower. The skin maybe? I guess so. I feel like that would hurt, like a mother. I know. I can't just feel like knives. So she got her in a shower. The ambulance came the helicopter came because she was going to have to be airlifted to Tampa general hospital. A paramedic who is on the scene said that her skin hung from her face and arms as though it had melted. Oh my God. I can't fucking even. Okay, so in the meantime, a separate fire had been set in the living room. And John O'Hara, who was the workman measuring property lines in the neighborhood. He spotted Chris. And Chris was in the flames, and he helped pull him to safety. So Chris had gotten a little burned, but nothing terrible. Right. But Chris first words to the paramedic were. Did I kill the bitch? Oh my God. Hello. Hello. So Audrey was put into an induced coma for 6 weeks. She didn't get to see her son until three months later. And in fact, the person her youngest was, I think, a year old at this point. And he had gotten so attached to the person who was caring for them. It was hard for her to just kind of keep in mind she looked completely different. Yeah. So she hadn't seen them for three months. Meanwhile, Chris was charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and arson. So Audrey woke up in December of 2009 and she felt completely lost. She endured excruciating surgeries. In therapy. Yeah. 80% of her body was covered with second and third degree burns. 80%. That just hurts. At the trial, here's the part where I'm like, at the trial, Chris tried to convince the jury that she was trying to kill him. Oh my God. Yeah, she was the one who wielded the candle and the gasoline and he just defended himself he kicked her and that's how she got caught on fire. Now luckily the jury after asking the paramedics if he had managed to kill the bitch. If he had managed to kill the bitch. No, he didn't ask the paramedic that he asked the workman on the planet. Okay. But yes, no matter what, dude. And this guy testified at the trial and told him, that was what he said to me was did I kill the bitch? So yeah, no one's gonna come on now. So luckily, the jury did not buy that story. At the sentencing, Audrey said, and I mean, she was up there. She wore because I watched part of the trial. She wore a sleeveless top, showed her arms, all the scars, she, I mean, her face just on her chin just kind of went completely straight down. And you could see what the paramedic was talking about where it just looked like it melted off of her. Because it wasn't that long after this fire that they had the trial. It wasn't like years later. But in her victim impact statement, she said, I ask that the court your honor, not show mercy on his earthly life because he did not show mercy on mine. I love the way she phrased that. The defense asked the judge to consider the shortest possible sentence, which would be 12 and a half years. No. No. The judge think goodness. Sentenced him to life in prison. For trying to kill his wife, 30 years for the arson and 30 years for the aggravated battery.

She didn't know how much leader it was because she was lying outside the car on the the sand and they were stabbing her in the abdomen and in the pubic area only ida she would later learned that they had done so as many as thirty seven times teens then proceeds to cut her throat franz pushes him out of the way straddles her and then proceeds to stab her throat and neck. Seventeen times. God i gotta i gotta guide. He stops and allison remembers the sound of their voices growing fainter and she vaguely remembers hearing her car drive off and they had tossed her close out the window and onto the sand next to her. She said that surprisingly she couldn't feel any pain but what was most disturbing to her was the sound of her breathing through her severed windpipe. Then it dawned on her that she was dying and the likelihood that she was going to survive was very slim and then she said she felt herself leaving her body and she said she could she can remember looking down on her bloody corpse and she said at that moment she knew she had a choice. She could go onto the afterlife or she could go back and she chose to go back and she was like i was thinking. I'm gonna change so many things about my life. I'm gonna live my life purpose. 'cause she'd free wandering saul and i'm going to be have a better relationship with my mom and my parents all these things i'm going to do. She said she felt herself return to her body. The sounds the ambient sounds of though ocean. The chirping bugs and whatnot came rushing back and she was suddenly aware again that she was alive and the only thing she could think of was. Now that i'm still alive. I have to survive this so that i can catch these guys so they can never do this to someone else. The first thing she did was write their names in the sand with her finger in the hopes that have. Someone found her that they would see this. And that hatched the in anderson with a gel just in case she didn't survive the next thing she wrote was. I love mom. It was then that she felt something wet on her legs and she realized her intestines were outside of her body. Oh my god. Oh my god yamagata magadan so. She reached over and grabbed her denim shirt and pressed against her stomach so that she can hold them in. She started crawling and she said all she could think of it. She was crawling was if i make it a little bit further a lease my mom will no i tried. Yeah oh my god. She said they're crawling was very awkward. Just i'm gonna tell you prepare for this next part because this is what made me say i have to do this fucking story. So she's crawling. It was very awkward because she was only on hands and knees but only one hand because the other one was pressed against her stomach. Ohlinger insights in we gotta make. She managed to hoist herself up to her feet and then everything went black. She held her hand to her throat. Wave it in front of her face. Her hand went into a wound. My god god did severed the muscles on her neck and are headed actually flopped bat her shoulder blades. She's life. That is why. I have to do this story. She said she had to use her hand to pull her head back up and hold it upright so that she could see. I know how the phone look. Did she live this. Why headed the story. So she's holding her head up with one hand holding her stomach together with the other one and she starts walking. She said i felt as though someone had picked her up and then settled down because the next thing she knew she was at the end of the road. She said as soon as she got to the road her strength gave out and she fell shoes lying in the middle of the road and she remembered thinking the worst thing that can happen to me now as a car is going to hit me like party. That's when she saw a pair of headlights toward her. She says the car closer. She thought if this is franz tins comeback. I'm screwed. yeah. I can't fight them off now because she had no strength left so she said the car stopped set there from it and then a sped off driving around then she heard another car coming. Just one was driven by twenty year olds twenty year. Old student named tie-in not teens He was import elizabeth on vacation with his friends. They stopped the car and got out. They ran up to her and tien said all he could tell was. It was a person covered in blood. They were naked lying in the middle of the road. So go down on the ground. He took her hand. He said she couldn't speak but he could tell she was alive because she was looking at him and her eyes were completely bloodshot. He said he took office shirt and later overheard cover her and then he started talking to her just to keep present so one of his friends had cell phone which wasn't common back then but he immediately called emergency services. They estimated that they were maybe fifteen minutes away from town so it shouldn't be long for the hospital but they waited and waited and finally paramedics arrived about forty minutes. Later they loaded her up. He got in the ambulance with her. And i know as he said as they drove the paramedics seemed to be going at a leisurely pace because they were like. She's she mine and he kept saying go faster. Go faster but they didn't seem to see the urgency in it. They finally made it to the hospital. They took her inside but tien was not allowed to go back in with her. And alison said this entire ordeal from the time franz kidnapped her opener door crawled in to the time where she was wheeled into the e. d. only took ninety minutes. I'll might have been so much longer. So dr who attended alison. That night was named. Dr david coleman. He said that before. And after that night he has never witnessed anything as horrific as the injuries that alison had sustained. He called it a mindless destruction of human and it really disturbed him. I mean even. I watched the documentary on this which everyone needs to watch fucking amazing but he says even now he gets choked up talking about it and he did. He was cheering up while he was talking about what had happened to her. What is this documentary on. It's on amazon. Prime is called alison. So n. yeah. The rest of the style is also deeply disturbed by the violence that she had suffered at the hands of another human being. They said you see injuries from motor vehicle accidents. You see bar fights you see analyze million other things but none of that was disturbing to them as what they witnessed happened to allison but even other attempted murders. Like i can't this is so much overcautious. Oh my god. He said he being dr cohen. Said the allison's laceration to her neck went from ear. Her trachea windpipe had been cut cleanly through. She was breathing through a gaping hole. Just above her collarbone after. He examined her neck wound. The doctor who had admitted her said wait. That's not all and then pulled back the sheet to show him that she had been disemboweled under.

We're gonna talk about marketing marketings role in helping companies during times of transformation. You've got a lot of experience in that but before we hop into that. I just would like you to share with everyone. Your career journey What sparked your interest in marketing. What led you to be in the cmo demand. Science sounds great. Happy to do it. I think you know it's easy to say always wanted to be a marketer. But i'll be honest and say that you know in in undergrad. I didn't really know what that meant. I thought it was advertising in super bowl ads and things that were just cool and sexy big budgets and of course that's not all the reality although that's the fun part for sure but i. I certainly am thrilled. Still be on the path in marketing. And i started really my journey for ernest at digital I was there for eleven. Years was an amazing opportunity and foundational time for me and talking to my peers. We're all in agreement that that was really when we grew as marketers. We actually have a reunion coming up in the fall. Hopefully in person in the boston area so excited about that. And you know there's for sure six degrees of Six degrees of separation with my peers at dinner. Toss around this area and beyond which makes it also fun to continue to be connection. Engage with people that you've known for a long time who are growing in their careers. Many people in as cmo's at this point but you know it's it's there's been a lot the journey as well and and took me a lot of places to get to orient today. So wanna talk to you a little bit about that. Because i really learned a lot in in what it takes to be transformational and succeed in. It's not really about being able to send a memo about a new marketing campaign. It takes a lot of engagement of communication as you know.

"six degrees" Discussed on Six Degrees of WTF

"So that's like what they were known for and at the time in one thousand nine hundred fifty six. It was the largest reform school in the country. There were six hundred ninety eight students and one hundred and twenty eight. Staffers and so just the fact that people would drive around. Cd sweet like with their kids and see these sweet things that like all these terrible evil boys are being reformed and displaced works. I mean look at the love and joy here while they have a giant fan going in the white house so that they have no idea. But you know what's going to happen later that night or happened that morning to them. Exactly this front was put on that part seriously. Just gave me chills. I did not like reading. May nineteen sixty one. Sixteen year old boy named jerry cooper was sent there because he was a runaway. He was interviewed back in two thousand twelve and said that the school staff got him out of bed. One time at two. Am and took him to the white house where he says they threw him on a bed tied his feet and began beating him with a leather strap. He eventually passed out but a boy in the next room later told him. He counted one hundred and thirty five lashes. Just thinking about these fucking guards. Who do this shit. Yeah these are all boys. Ya like ten seventeen years old. I just see them anxiously awaiting the fresh meat. They get to torture guests. Exactly apparently the fifties and sixties were the worst and many of the children who left the school in the fifties and sixties went on to rape and robin kill. I mean obviously jaw. Is anyone surprised by that. Wrote after fourteen months at the school. Leon holsten killed three younger boys in pompano beach and he began serving a life sentence since nineteen sixty eight while in two thousand twelve. The supreme court ruled that mandatory life sentences for juvenile killers was unconstitutional. So he was up for release I saw pictures of this dude..

Wet Notes - 7-18-21

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

"We're getting vaccine all right. We're gonna take an extremely quick second and then we'll be right back. Well i was hoping to have a quick little live demo over audio because that's so much fun for people listening. But i was hoping to at least have a visual aid at my side Unfortunately i chose to install the beta two point one andrew twelve beta two point one update which was released today to help fix some stuff. I wanna see if this fixes some stuff Because apparently we're finally getting at a glance. Widget that i've been wanting to play play with how how stable was to what was the previous addition to two point. Nothing or was there an point. Nothing and let me tell you the issues that were fixed in this point. One as i as i watch over here. This optimizing apps loading barges slowly just never increase. It's actually i think it stuck. Okay so the full released notes mentioned fixes an issue from accessing things on the lockscreen fixing issue that causes information just weather and calendar events not to appear fixing issue that causes flickering. That was the thing that really was getting grinding. The gears fixes an issue with a microphone and camera permission indicators that would get stuck in disappear until the phone is reported. Oh my god fixing issue when using the android emulator fixing issue no fixed an issue or after taking betta taking beta and resetting the device some users stuck on setup wizard inconvenient. If you've disappointing if you only have one phone which is sitting here watching the system. Update like be stock. God it's like that's that much text on a black background an android not a good. It doesn't fill you with hope. It says it says well it's nine p I'm just gonna leave this on the charger and go to bed and hope that things are better by the morning. Well listen. I did get to write a little bit about andrey twelve at gizmodo. I will link to the latest. Listen i did a slide show. It was it was good. Okay it's a good slide. Show where i kind of walk you through some of the features that you can set up and play with. Now you can get a little bit of material you. It's very very minimal. It's only available in the dropdown shade. When you add a new wallpaper and even then the color selection process is limited to say. the least. The privacy dashboard is there. That i think is pretty cool. People should check that out. it's like digital wellbeing for your the permissions that apps on your phone. Lets you know like how many hours is use location data today. How many hours did did it paying How many hours your camera get turned on today by different apps and so mix it more transparent for users. but i think it's i'm very curious to know the users that are actually taking evangelists like the power user thing or is this something that you know joe schmo is aware of sorry to joe schmo fully to your parents for going for going all the way there and just saying you know what we're going to name him. Joe no we're going to name her joe joe schmo especially and then saying you know what we could live anywhere but we are specifically going to take a job in the kokomo branch of the corporation. We both walked flirt so we can be the parents of joe schmo from kokomo. It's it's i was really. I was really curious to hear about it because it seems one of the things that i wished that goule would kinda copy from from iowa's would be apple tries to make a really really clear. Delineation between a developer preview and a beta the beta developer preview is really raw at lots of nails still sticking out lots of patches. In the in the painting we can still see the primer underneath. What by the time. It comes to beta that's available to the general public. They're still not necessarily encouraging everybody to use it. But there is an implication that we're very very close to at least be having useful features on this thing and complete suite of the features they're going to be and now we're just debugging it of larose with android. This is called a beta two point one and you have to really keep your ear close to the ground. If you're interested in getting a preview of the experience really have to read these like your your piece on gizmodo and these other pieces very carefully before you figure out. Okay does finally stable enough that i feel as though i'm i can board a plane with for two or three days with my phone and not find out that got bricked. Because i decided to use the wrong kind of charging cable. I decided to charge it. This thing is still optimizing apps by the way could news. It's optimizing most of it's done in the morning. I will say that if you are going on a plane you should not be installing a beta on your phone. Exactly that you're our god especially this is. This is for your. If you didn't give your your old phone away to like your kids or partner. This is something you put on your phone your new phone. If you want it to be a phone you want to put a beta of anything. Not even an apple beta in the thing is is apple's released schedule. Further softwares a lot. Different than what google does at the same time. We do know that this beta program is lasting for is public facing betas about four or five months so it's not terrible and it's kind of cool to be able to participate in it as a part of the general public versus apple which is very like you need to pay for this developer license. Developers lay like it's it's a very closed experience Again i always caution. Anybody who is interested. The beta is available for pixel three devices and up so everything after that is available with factory image. I know one plus was having some problems with their beta. But that's they have some similar things and they're gonna have from what i'm reading a slightly different interface so own a couple of months. Don't get me started on one. Plus and their drama. Did you also remember to call.

"With our cs. China gration so those are two different apps. it's worth noting that andrew messages has gone through several iterations before it ended up where it did and google voice is dwindling. It's dwindling unfortunately video conferencing services folks. We had google talk. Google voice. google plus hangouts. Google duo and google meet five different ones. The last you will meet in gold. Oooh are the current and collaboration software. let's not forget. Google wave recipes Which brought us a lot of features that we enjoy in. Google docs Google plus circles. And we all know how that ended up. Google docs chat yet. The chat is another thing. That's that is a chat. That's a chat. it's a professional chat. That's a professional message. Board situation there like someone leaves a comment on the line of your article. And that is. The thread starts a thread. It just diverges right. It just keeps going going going and going. I'm just. I try to pay attention. But i honest to god i don't care how like a clueless. This makes me seem. I don't know what google's chat app is like. I feel as though the the messages app on my phone is just like the my text messaging. Sms app that. I would have on any phone. But i don't know what like what Their equivalent of i messages. I message or face face. Time is i don't know What their version of signal would be. Like if i if. I just wanna have like a non sms chat with somebody. What do i fire up. Aren't they getting. Encrypted is a global chatter andrew messages getting encrypted messages They're working on it but then for the summer. Yeah i do. I do think it's interesting. We're talking about this after we talked about the ceo's and like the different profiles because there is still a lot of. Yeah there's a lot of siphoning happening at google. There's not there's not as much integration as i think we think with all of that new open office plan and someone since implants breaking down those walls think we need to break down those walls a little more and discuss about. Maybe getting some of these. Why can't we just make it one big chat app. That just does everything it does. Just what apple does it does. Video does text messages. Does i am fortune telling it does your taxes. I have an idea. And and we could use an arch client. I've been without archie client since like nineteen ninety-one and as it's something that a gen xer who was like into the internet in the late eighties and early nineties would pull out of the The back of the drawer as a reference that no one would get but he would understand. That would make him. Feel somehow archie to me and i think archie comics immediately archie now without a companion app called veronica. You freaking nerds yet jug at and veronica to be correct. They were in turn superseded by search engines. Like google and nineteen ninety-seven. Wow god it's really even after a cool comic. We named it against the reader's digest style. The comics you'd get at the supermarket checkout aisle the we had the x. men back there. Okay andy have seen riverdale. Archie is a lot bigger at the skit credit. Okay there's the haunted anyway. Okay do you wanna talk very quickly by the way andy. Would you like to take us through this forcing of the covid tragedy because it is to me already in california this but this one was really mysterious so in the commonwealth of massachusetts department of public health has an official cova tracking app Called mass and a lot of people who are using android phones in massachusetts this app to suddenly appearing on their phones invisibly unbidden and without like interaction or permission or or awareness The only reason why they found out that this app had somehow been installed on their phone was when it started appearing in that list of Google play store app updates that you come th that fly by and so To five google to ask you about this. Google said oh. I'm glad you asked about that. It's perfectly fine. It's part of the It's it's part of the exposure notification system that was code of co-developed with apple and google and the the the app is mass notify. It's absolutely nonfunctional. You have to go into settings to activate it and then it just means that you'll get notifications when you are close to someone who has had but they didn't answer the question. Yeah what we really want to know is how was this force. Installed on people's phones was this something that the mass department of health like engineered. Was this a mistake Was there like some sort of a check box when these people signed up for not to for appointments of about being immunizing oh by the way paragraph eight of page twenty one says that we will force low to tracking app. Excuse me cova tracker like on your on your phone so we. There's still as of like two hours ago. Complete silence on that point. That is an interesting point because it could have been. It could have been forced out by google as sort of like a quasi system update it could have been a forced out by the The network that That the phone was on that operating inside the massachusetts. They were ordered that. Make sure that this this app gets gets forced installed on everything and i think a lot of people didn't even know that this was a capability that was baked into android. That someone who is possibly not google could again force an update a force installation of an app that remains invisible and hidden to you. Because that's kind of dangerous that it doesn't make you feel really really good and keep keep in mind that we have it comes to like Covert infrastructure. We have people trying to warn or the people that covert vaccines will turn your your kids magnetic. We don't need. This added sense of paranoia and i agree i agree At the same time gods would have been a lot more helpful a year ago right..

"It's such a mi. Is there a know your meme because there should be one for this google killing messaging so anyway Google opened up. Google chat to everybody. So you can go into your g mail settings and you dig in there. Know the g mail settings are like vast hard to navigate. You dig in there. And then there's a little option where you can take off hangouts and take on google chat and that'll just convert you to the experience And this comes with a bunch of other perks too. Because this is all part of the workspace roll out so google's going to give you access to lake spaces which are little collaborative rooms that you could have in group chats and i actually was playing around with it with my friends but The problem with all these great features is it's like debut in it to a user base that's questionable now when google originally did the news bulletin about this day i believe it was the blog post. Said this 'cause i read about it. They said that it would just pretty much convert all its users which is supposed to be roughly anecdotally three billion because the idea is anybody with a google account has access to these chat features but is it really three billion users if those people don't actually all use the same thing because there's you know google's such a messy plan of it when it comes to messaging and i think a lot of people just migrated away because it was so and i think the few people left on hangouts will be the ones using this like it's literally me my husband and bike one other friend group that it everybody else's on instagram or twitter or in my tax messages or in my whatsapp word. I'm even getting more emails than i do. Hang out sometimes. it's really. it's really hard because it's it's like every chat app is like its own little island with its own little dialect. Isn't it because i do have people who are on. Hang out that the best way to get them this to beyond hangouts chiefly because whatever happened four or five years ago. When a group of people that include apple people android people needed to have a group chat one of them like suggest but all of all of us had to get Hangouts working at the same time. That's what we fell back to. And i did get that. Big blue box actually just noticed it while setting up for for our talk tonight about google chats going because you google hangouts going away and is becoming google chat. Is it at night articles. But and click. Click this all of it. We're going to all of your history has been moved over to chat and all your context and pass chats and move over to chat and click this button to show how one of going to be and it was very very pleased to see that Like it really is just like everything that i was doing and hangouts is now appearing in chat so that was a relief but i have reactions. You can react to things have reactions reactions. And it's a very very elegant. Because you have to do to chat with my friends with a chat app from google called chat is to go to mail dot google dot com. That will take me right to the chat. Well the idea. It's your work is g. mail your workspace. And that's like i think that's why some of my friends are still on. It is because they have g mail. It's like and i think this is mostly by the way the millennial set 'cause you ask them jen's era with the us none of them are saying goule chat cry But you know some of us still use. G mail is our aim. Ram or aol. Instant messenger our buddy list if you will the outside world outside of work. cq hill. Yeah so i mean. I try not to have discovered on during work hours. Because it's very distracting. So but i got tucked somewhere just kidding anyway. So the verge actually put together this timeline of google bessinger apps just sort of a brief history and history is actually quite extensive when you consider the number of messaging apps for talking about here. So let's go to the most. Being spirited generosity do just plainly speak the truth without any opinion whatsoever and they make and they look this is all factual ranks so we have email which is g mail. That's one. we have messaging services which over the years have included Google talk. Google plus huddle whoa google plus hot. All that is a deep cut. Google hangouts google s and p's google chat the so those are five just branded sweets on their own and the verge also mentioned that there are innumerable chat features built into other google products. That was not mentioned. And i will say one of those is probably the ability to comment on a photo in google photos which i don't consider a chat. I think people need to get over that. It's not a chat. But i still. I still get alerts about how. Oh here's what someone commented on. This shared album. That you don't ever remember joining that. Someone just sort of added your name to like okay. I enjoyed meeting you eight years ago. Stefan but i don't really need to seek you'll vacation jeff. On that was that was a great cruise. But you know you don't understand when that's simply a a social performative when we give other our g mail. If i if i give you my actual email address that would have meant something the fact that it said gmail.com and meant that. I'm not willing to block you from accessing. Like my my sanctum sanctorum. All in general email will not cause any any tones or lights to happen on any of my mobile devices sms rc 'services. Speaking of mobile devices included google voice android messages app.

"Where if this is. This is not a skill that i would particularly have but a really skilled leader particularly the ceo position would have a way of saying we are absolutely. You're absolutely right. We're absolutely going to work on this. You are going to we We also acknowledged that we have to show how we're working on this as time goes by an offer numbers our doing at the same time we we didn't we. We don't have one hundred thousand employees hired on a full-time basis to discuss cultural problems. Within the company we are here to create software to great systems to create products. And so we're not going to allow this to become a huge distraction. So we're not. We're not gonna have this big convey moment around ourselves.

I don't ever think that your employer is no no no. We're like a family here. I have. I have a a an important to the company goes beyond like my family is mandy. That's where you need so we will get you. We'll give you our spaceship nails. You the best we can. But that's that's that's why i'm getting there. There would have been a way to underscore that. We're going to have an ongoing conversation about this but we are not going to make. We're not gonna to have ten percent of our calendar appointments be people getting together to talk about a just sub rosa conversations about the environment here at google by all means go home. Go get drinks together. Whatever you want to talk about it. But we're not gonna have a building decided to devoted to infrastructure on talking about a how things are going inside the company we have to move forward we have we have forgot we've got eighteen different messaging platforms. We've got we're supposed to cancel by in the next eleven months will only be able to cancel eight of them at this rate and unfortunate. Yeah we are going to talk about this but before we do. Let's talk about the other profile of a senior vice president promo car ragavan. He isn't a ceo of google but he does run the place according to wired headline Now again this also came out. This came out this week right. No actually a few weeks ago. The the interview was it was a one on one interview and it was done. The we google may third week in may. That's right i remember. I remember this. And i do apologize that i did not look that up before we started. But anyway sidebar you. The timing is such that you wonder if that Prabahakar prabhakar raghavan was made available by google. Because they knew that the new york times was putting together this piece and it wasn't looking good. There are times fees came out last week. So it's credible that they had been on it in may. I've a devious mind. I have to think about this for those. Who aren't familiar with proper car raghavan. He is the senior vice president in charge of google. Search assistant maps ads. Commerce and payments products. Basically all of the company's top moneymaker ours before that he was in charge of g. Suite which i guess is now called space or whatever is going on there Which i wrote about and i forgot cool his credentials now. There are a little different than china's credentials. Okay so when we're talking to him as an executive we get a slightly different perspective into google. He is more of a research in academia kind of kind of person which i guess who put him kind of where larry page was whereas pichai is a little more from the business world now. Ragavan has authored authoritative texts on multiple subjects. So he knows his stuff and he's been highly decorated by engineering organizations for his work. So he he's a person with connections. Needless to say who's actually an adviser to larry page and sergei like when they when they were grad students which is probably how he secured this position long ago. Yeah yeah so throughout the interview in wired. He's pretty adamant. Just you know about not being depicted as a replacement for sundar pichai. I think in some instances google's trying to separate itself from the way that tech publications tend to to characterize companies based on the way we characterized apple long ago. And i don't think i was actually kind of thinking about this in my mind while we were talking about soon dr a second ago just about how tech company does have a different story and and deny even though we are objective in our work and we do a lot of research and everything we do is based on fact. We still do have to come up with a story because mixed interesting for all y'all out there right. It's the same reason why you watch soap operas and oh god not to say that journalism is the same soap operas. I was just trying to make a flow reference to another flow reference. And i just realized was like the worst absolutely worst thing so i apologized to the entire industry That's all to say that. The story of google is a little different than the other stories. And so i'm glad to see that it's being approached that way with these different profiles for the most part. It's interesting because like we both been a covering these tech beats for such a long time that there's stuff that we kind of recognized from previous stories and previous ongoing situations like Where does this. Where did this new york times. I have to add had ask myself. Were to this new york times story originate from was it from. Was it from the the original writer just proposing this as a really really good idea or did they get some a a new a source sort of revealed themselves saying. Hey you know. There are a lot of people out of senior executives again. Like these dozen vice presidents of who Signed that memo. Who just aren't really happy with sundar. Pichai and i can give you copies of these emails and is that part of some sort of a game of game of thrones sort of intrigue going on behind the scenes and then is soon dar's job it's in his You know i'm adding to your theory. Which is in his job description to take the proverbial bullet right to vote. And especially as soon as this came out of course. I had to think about a provocative ragavan Interview which at the time. I thought well. I had been aware of him. But i hadn't seen him like speak at length at this level when the things that really struck me. In addition to how very very clear and.

"Code material at checkout to get a huge thirty percent off your first invoice our thanks to pinged them from solar winds for their support of this show at all of relate. Fm all right so speaking of movie stars you know how when a new movie comes out a couple of the actors from the movies that kinda gets sent out. The press tour will go on like the different talk. Shows logo do podcasts. Or whatever and then they'll drop in little like go see my movie Will the equivalent. Google did the equivalent this week in our little tech world. It was very well-timed profiles in both the new york times and wired magazine. Two very prominent publications in our little texts. fear The profile in the new york times was kind of the one that really set the stage. Though this the headline for that was google executives are actually hold on. That's andy's headline headlines was that that was the headline of the new york times article. You guys i have to tell you. Forgive me because or they doing doing ab testing because looking at right now. And i'm seeing executive seat crushing. Seo thing listen folks it yeah. It's an seo url thing that's why we all got a little confused. I wanted to read the headline. But here's the real impact okay. The headline is google executive see cracks in their company's success. I read that headline and immediately. I was like oh god i know what this is going to be about An indeed it was so it was a whole article. Basically going in depth on who sinndar pajamas leader inside google. I was actually quite surprised at the What is the word. I'm trying to think of backed by this. Backbiting was a was a certain real housewives. Act aspect to some of the quotes. They got i know Okay let's talk about that first. And then i can tell you kind of how i feel about it. 'cause i think that's why i'm stalling a bit Because my my opinions are coming through. I so okay. So this article. I was quite surprised. At how much access. Google gave to new york times. Which is why we're sort of talking about this in this way of doing a quote unquote press store because it's very clearly after all the headlines at have been published in the new york times about google. Recently this is very clearly a hold on hold on. Here's our story. We'll give you a little bit of a glimpse inside Any at you know how these things go. So the article actually does quote many current and former google employees so credit to the journalists words do Many of them were working. Were or are working at high executive levels and the consensus complaints seem to be that china's two laid back to drive any innovation at alphabet. And he's just not allowing google to live up to its full potential There were some really great quotes in the article. Andy thank you for picking some of them out Let's see here's one. Good one fifteen current and former google executive speaking on the condition of anonymity of course for fear of horses. My editor note for fear of angering google and mr chai told the new york times that google was suffering for many of the pitfalls of a large maturing company a paralyzing bureaucracy bias toward in action and a fixation on public perception that was such a great lakes. I- chef's kiss god. Yeah it was just really good Let's see here's another one. Thank you for paying out the executive some of who regularly interacted and mr pichai said. Google did not move quickly on key business and personnel moves because spotify chewed over decisions delayed action. They said that google continued to be rocked by workplace cultural culture fights and that mr pichai attempts to lower the temperature had the opposite effect allowing problems to fester while avoiding tough and sometimes unpopular positions It gets a little bit worse by the way. So the article revealed that more than a dozen google vice presidents had co-signed on an email to chai identifying what they consider to be deep problems at the company created by its growth from mere giant into a leviathan. So that was. Andy is writing by the way with really. I am really sorry. I didn't do that justice. You have to that that bears mentioning because it you have to. You have to remember that when pichai took over it really was a time when google was going from. This is what this is the mo one of the most one of the most powerful tech companies in the world to know this is definitely there is no tech company. More power might be no company. Powerful more powerful or successful than google is and in that transition And this was me. Editorializing like steve jobs type of person who says that. Oh so you don't like the workplace environment. May maybe you would like the unemployment environment in silicon valley better. Hey there's the door well that's okay to be fair. If you've worked at google you're probably fine to find a job somewhere else and throw on bali. Someone's going to actually see. I'm sorry to interrupt because there's another quote. I didn't actually put in there. There's also kind of kind of damning and which somebody a recruiter or somebody is actually saying that they're google's reputation amongst like the most desirable engineers and hires is not as the income to google. You'll be working. You'll be developing the most fantastic ideas and the most incredible projects ever and that it's that the person who's quoted went on to say that like it is the easiest thing whatsoever to talk a google employee a high value on into moving to another company. For that reason. I do want to say though that that's kind of a common..

"Andy hello flow. This is going to be exciting. I love pailin. drome numbered episodes. Those are always special. I was just more focused on the number thirteen. Being in there and given everything is just really wild today. You know actually okay. Three is six. Plus one is seven hundred. I have nothing significant to give you there. But that's actually the should make things even happier because the fact that it's a pailin jerome means that it's being negated by half of its existence. Oh i'm sorry i'm sorry. Actually the meaning is coming in right now to me. It's hash tag free brittany. That's what it is speaking of celebrities. Andy so you were hanging out with curious. Sedgwick and kevin bacon today apparently I could make that cloud rain to like focus on the tech news trying to find something for the blog to right and i kept running into your tweets. Pictures getting increasingly like closer and more detailed notes. Okay so so so. So here's here's what's happening. Tell me. I'm not stalking celebrities. I'm i can. I'm about to make the case in. La has any reason to accuse you of that first of all exactly and see and also. Because i make the case that Curious edge week and kevin bacon are in fact stalking me is because they're filming a feature film like not just in my town not just on my street thought across the street from me so it is you live in one of those like historical little towns. You kept telling us about it on the podcast. And i can't being like okay. Andy we get it murder. She wrote but look at it right now. It's it's it's coins. Drop a apparently hollywood. Didn't think it was quite enough. I mean it's already suspiciously. Quaint as it is. They decided they needed to drop. The park can ruin your town. It could also you know. We got hollywood people milling about. I mean there are actually very very very nice. Well no i mean this could drive up like you know. There's all these dunkin donuts is gonna move in. They're going to be like oh people are going to come here to see the set where kevin bacon was and remember andy. Six degrees of separation from kevin bacon. Well you apparently it's been a long time since you've been to new england that tweet. We are town which is not a big town.

And i'm sure there there's more dunkin donuts just like Every time like they. It's like a mailbox. it's like you expect one. It's not it's not as though you make a plan to go to dunkin donuts. You just walk into direction until you encounter. Dunkin donuts very much starbucks silence very much like that too around the world but here especially at starbucks so anyway. It's a weird situation because like if you again if if they were just simply like in town you couldn't have gotten say. Oh gosh maybe i'll like you know. Go like two or three miles away and like see what the what's going on on the on the film location but like when i'm in bed and it's like eight in the morning and which is a time like i'm sort of like waking up and starting the process of deciding like what time do i actually want to leave the bed and start my day and i start getting text messages from friends. The neighborhood about oh my god look. There came a big like a book. He's got these buckets of flowers. He's carrying around and see. This is this is when the part of my brain that is that is gravitating towards but if we were to stay in bed that would be the easiest thing we could possibly do. Or if we want to compromise getting out of bed but going into the living room or the office that would be the easiest thing possible but that would be far far easier than leaving the house. And then the custodial part of my brain says look there is a an interesting film set with like actors that you kind of like you. Haven't you haven't been able to take many pickers your because you haven't been able to go out and about a year like they literally these these. They've they've for your for your entertainment. They have brought an entire film set again literally across the street from the actually get down there. So i guess so. I had my The camera in a bag. I didn't. I didn't know like if they were going to be like you know out of i've i've been on film sets before and i've been like around film sets before so i know that they will probably have people like as who are like making sure. You're not going to be standing anywhere where it'll affect the shoot. I didn't want to be one of these people who is like being annoying so i started taking pictures with my phone And then i had but in my bag. I had like the good camera with this. Three hundred millimeter. Zoom lens and two x extender. That made it into this huge. Like six hundred millimeter lens. So yeah the first. The first photo that i sat see again. I underscore their stalking me. I didn't. I didn't come out to like one street away across the street from where they live and start doing a podcast or anything. They came to me if anything again. I'm the. I'm the offended party here. So yeah so you're right. I did so. I took a picture with with my By android a pixel for a lot to ask with the excellent exit because again they they were the the were very very nice.

What Is Tail Risk?

"Last week. The proven i got stuck in a rare snow and ice storm that hit texas where millions were without power and unable to heat their homes. We spent saturday night in el paso. Texas we saw there was going to be a winter storm between el paso and san antonio where we were heading where we were dropping off. My son and daughter in law's subaru that they had repaired back in tucson where we spend the winters we debated whether we should stay in el paso or not maybe way today but i thought i've driven in the snow a lot. It's a subaru. It has new tires. We should be just fine and indeed the car at least for the first day perform quite well. It was an absolute mess. There were so many wrecks at one point. There was a chinese woman in the middle of the highway waving us down. We thought it was another wreck. Turns turns out. She and her husband had got stranded on the other side of the expressway and needed a ride back to the next town where they had a hotel. It took us eight hours of driving. And we realized we wouldn't be able to reach san antonio. I rather son book too so hotel in oso texas because our cell phones weren't working right. The next morning the car was dead we put in a battery and then we started driving again. We didn't make it far. We got stuck at a rest. Stop our cell. Phones didn't work. It was fifteen degrees. I found found somebody that call the police for us rescue us but before the police arrived the car started against so we thought well at least try to get to the next exit and maybe we could get a hotel. The car stalled again. We posted about a half a mile off the highway and ended up stranded on the side of the road in sonora texas. It's not a very big town. There's no taxis there's no uber. We presume the problem was the alternator was out. We got a hold of my son who wanted to come and install a new one so we had to get back about thirty eight miles to sona texas where we had a hotel room. I least had the presence of mind to book another nights room at the hotel just in case something came up. We couldn't get back. I called the police. They said they couldn't help. They didn't have the resources that operator said call tow truck. Why did they weren't going to pick us up. They only tow cars. Aaa doesn't do it. Either they only arrange for toes reaced needed a ride back to her hotel. Was i call the auto parts store where i had paid a couple of guys to put the battery in. They didn't want to come pick us up. I had brett check. If we had any plus members in the area the closest one was in kerrville too. Far away i called our web developers in houston. Do they know anybody. In sonora turn their neighbor had family that live there but he was eighty and they couldn't get a hold of him on the phone. Finally brat got in touch with a local leader from the church of jesus christ of latter day saints that live an hour and a half away and it turns out he knew a couple in zona who said they were willing to come and get us complete strangers. They both worked for the school district. The husband and wife and they came. We were on the side of the road about two hours and it was cold the next day. His father in law came. They picked us up. And we made it san antonio barely because we had the head any gasoline because they're filling stations were closed or out of gas because of power. It was extremely rare event. The coldest that has been in texas since nineteen eighty nine. If we look at the weather in san antonio in a typical year it varies between forty. Three degrees in ninety six degrees. it rarely falls below. Freezing plotted graph. Temperatures in texas. Most of the observations would be in the middle around seventy degrees. This is a bell curve. A normal distribution fifteen degrees fahrenheit is where we were to the far left of this distribution and that far left is the tail tail events are extreme outcomes or very rare observations. Because they're in the tail on the ends of the distribution there called talibans tail. Risk is the personal harm. That's these extreme events can cause. How does it impact us. In the worst case we could be ruined. We could die or we could go bankrupt. We could run out of money. This weather event was hey tail event. It was an extreme of it. It was rare now. Pearl and i were in a. I wouldn't call it a dangerous situation. Certainly very uncomfortable. I have not been that stranded in many years. It took a while to find help. I've you were kind of at wit's end as investors we can control the amount of tail risk that we take we can protect against by buying insurance. We can self insure in have enough buffer to survive extreme risk or we can ensure others and sell tail risk protection before we continue. Let me pause and share some words from a new sponsor to the show babble. When the as. I'm eagles as you know. I learned spanish many years ago and recently i've been practicing trying to improve my spanish by using babble. The number one language learning apps each lesson on babbel's about fifteen minutes.

South slammed by winter storm, millions left without power in Texas

"O'Dowd. This is here and now much of the country is in the path of a major winter storm today that is icing over roads, closing airports and causing rolling power outages for millions of Americans. Oklahoma City plunged to a record low six degrees below zero this morning. The last time I got even close to that cold was more than a century ago, Alana Roach to a reporter at the Texas Tribune woke up to an unfamiliar scene here. She is with her four year old daughter, Remmy and 17 month old son, Patrick. We are in Austin, Texas, on Welcome this morning to see what outside Ram Snow. Yeah. What do you want to do in it today? No angels and I'm Valley. No man's Yeah. How beautiful is our backyard? And that scared? It may look good. It may look beautiful, but it's also dangerous. Joining us now is Mark Elliott, a meteorologist and storms specialist at the Weather Channel based in Atlanta. Mark busy day Thanks for making time for us. Absolutely. You're not kidding. And then first let's focus in on Texas because we do not hear about snow and cold like that very often. How unprecedented have the conditions been in Texas? I mean, by all measures. This is just an incredible weather pattern that led to some incredible weather. That's really not done yet. I mean, as an example, you're just hearing from that family in the Austin area. They're gonna have single digit low temperatures when they wake up tomorrow morning, which is on Lee happened eight times in the long Recorded history of the Austin area. I mean, this is an impressive cold air outbreak by all measures and to see the snow across Texas. Very impressive as well. San Antonio officially had six inches of snow from this storm. Wow. Well, this has been going on for a few days because there was recently that terrible pile up around Fort Worth where nine people died on and now looks like every county in Texas is under a state of emergency. And we're seeing millions of people there who don't have power because of the burden on the power grid. It's just so great. So how dangerous is a storm like this? Yeah, I think it's a little bit under appreciated. How? How stress the body can get over When underneath these extreme cold conditions, You have to take all kinds of precautions. I mean, everyone was saying, you know, don't go traveling unless you absolutely have to, and I think most people are listening to that. But, you know, have blankets in the trunk of your car. In case you do get stuck somewhere Know where those extra blankets are in your house. In case you're you know, you lose power for an extended period of time. It is not a comfortable thing to go through. We'll put it that way, Right. And when windshields are that low in a place like Texas, where it doesn't happen very often, it might be worth it. For people to know. Like, what does it feel like? And how dangerous how long can you be exposed to that kind of weather? You know, and single digit temperatures like we are forecasting into central, even portions of southern Texas along with wind chills. That will be even colder than that when you could get frostbite outside in a matter of minutes, So, yes, it's fun, right? Do you have the kid? There's a fun side to this novelty of snow in Texas. But you do need to protect your skin. You need to make sure that you're Getting breaks and getting warmed up because you can really get hurt if you're out there too long. Yeah, And it is not just Texas. As we said neighboring Oklahoma. They've gone days now without getting above 20 F and even Seattle has gotten about a foot of snow. So how widespread is this system across the country? Yeah, A couple of different storms are rotating through what's a a bigger trough of low pressure across, say, the eastern two thirds of the country but then that Trump also extends into the Pacific Northwest. So that's the storm pattern. Storm's coming into the Pacific Northwest, diving very far south into you know, central or even southern Texas and then turning the corner going through the mid south and eventually into the Northeast corridor. So Everybody along that path is seeing ice or snow. Anyone north of that path is in the extreme cold air. And, yes, there is another storm waiting in the wings. So many of the same areas that we've been talking about are going to get snow again for the middle and end of the week, including North Texas. The Dallas area could see significant snow again. Little Rock could see significant snow Memphis could see significant snow. I mean, these are areas that don't get snow every season. So to be talking about it twice in one week is just one more example of how incredible this weather pattern really is. I mean, is it normal? I guess what you've been describing No, it's not normal, actually. So what's causing it all to happen? Yes, So there's there's a loaded question, right? Because weather will always happen and, you know, long term averages are made up of weather extremes on so it's winter. You're going to see winter weather, but you don't see this kind of winter winter weather every year, and a lot of people are like, Oh, it's so cold. You said climate change and global warming. There is a you know, ironic component to that that as the polls warm at different levels, it messes with the polar vortex. I'm sure people have remember hearing about that from a couple years ago as that slows down that strong corridor of wind around the Arctic that keeps that cold air locked up. It gets all kinds of wiggly and wobbly And that happens all the time. That polar vortex is always there. But this is an impressive wobble if you will. So all that Arctic air spilled into the lower latitudes where the U. S is and that cold air is, you know, we're really feeling the impact right now. Marc Elliot, the weather Channel. Thank you so much for your time.

What Was The Westward Expansion?

Can We Health You?

What Was The Westward Expansion?

"Today we're talking about westward expansion. Yes earnings comforting. Yes in the united states yes so in eighteen zero three president. Thomas jefferson bought the territory of louisiana from the french government. For fifteen million dollars. This was known as the louisiana purchase. That was a lot of money back then. It was a ton of money. I wonder what it translates to today. Do that just curious know sure. It's like billions of dollars. Yeah so that. Land stretched from the mississippi river to the rocky mountains and from canada to new orleans so that like mid section it doubled the previous size of the then young united states and as as soon as jefferson signed the treaty. He sent the explorers lewis and clark to find a route to the pacific ocean. Many other explorers made the journey as well and so began the expansion of the country to jefferson. Westward expansion was the key to the nation's health. Jefferson believed that a republic depended on an independent virtuous citizenry for survival and that independence. Virtue went hand in hand with landownership especially up small farms. He wrote quote those who labor. The earth are the chosen people have gone. Wow yeah it doesn't correlate to me but okay yeah right so you're virtuous visuals and land or work. Yeah ok you work. Land make something from it. Honest work i suppose. Yeah if you're thinking kind of thing you take away like what we know about him. I'm think stop thinking of him as a person and the right he wanted the country to expand. And i think he planted the seed for the pioneers. Till i look you know you can go right. Make something something for yourself. Yeah so in. But in order for jefferson's dream for the country to come to fruition expansion had to happen so he maybe the country the dream of the country came first. And then thought okay. I need to have more land People to do So while the westward expansion is one of the defining themes of the nineteenth century american history. This growth was certainly fraught with struggle and won't get into that way by almost about forty years later. Nearly seven million americans forty percent of the nation's population now lived in this area. Well they know that way from eight eighteen three from eighteen hundred eight forty k. So pretty quick. Wake seven million. That's pretty big. Most people left their homes in the east and followed lewis and clark across the country as promised they were searching for economic opportunity like jefferson. Many of these painters believed that they would find land to farm trusting that ownership would lead to freedom in nineteen eighty five. Sorry wow a lot in eighteen forty five. A journalist named john o'sullivan put a name to this idea. That helped pull the pioneers to the west. He said that it was americans. Manifest destiny to carry quote the great experiment of liberty to the edge of the continent. O'sullivan wrote that. The survival of american freedom dependent on it and it was their duty to quote again Overspread and to possess the whole of the land which the providence has given us an quote the providence of meaning. I think the providence of light. What they were given like the land that was before them. It's here so is ours to take. Even though it wasn't i mean. Is that kinda what they get this kind of the way. I remember from Es three class and talking about manifest destiny asked yeah so this became a widely held cultural beliefs which carried the following themes the special virtues of the american people in their institutions the mission of the us to redeem in remake the west in the image of the east and an ear irresistible destiny to accomplish this essential duty so was disappointed was so arranged of area. Right ideas are planted in their head. Like if you go out there you will make your money. you'll survive you'll be happy. Happiness is just. Yep exactly yeah you'll have your own lambs have all the freedom that you'll have yeah So that term became controversial. You know throughout time. Meanwhile meanwhile while this kind of happening the question of whether slavery would carry onto to the west was at hand around this time. The missouri compromise was made which attempted to resolve the question of whether or not slavery would be allowed in the new western states That the louisiana purchase sort of like you know was responsible for create Them so this whether slavery would be in. These new states shadowed almost every conversation about the frontier. The compromise admitted missouri to the union as a slave state and may had to change main to a free state had they needed to have. They had to preserve the fragile balance in congress between us owning states in nonstop hunting state. Yes i say. I'm surprised that main was asleep. At i mean because she just think of the south. But i know. I'm know an i don't really know actually slave-owning or they like the changes such. Yeah just to keep that the same number okay. Half-and-half just have to say i know going. Forward as policy was made progressing through that it was always taken into account those southern states or the slave owning states. How making sure that they get what they want. It always had to be part of the conversation. Yeah it's crazy for another strong decade. A yeah i think even on that of course of an attorney but while they're formation was been the biggest conversation sure. Oh yes right. See that the okay. So the missouri compromise also stipulated that slavery would be prohibited north of the southern boundary of missouri. So the the thirty six degree latitude line okay It couldn't be north. Slavery couldn't be north of that but missouri was north of that so i think like after missouri said that they were going to be a slave. Nobody else could that was it. Yeah grandfathered in so many. Many thought of sullivan's manifest destiny was a secret term for spreading slavery. Really yes who thought that the people that wanted slavery or did not want to read. You know the people in the north okay. They thought it was. They thought it was like a secret term for light taking it over there. Really conspiracy theory Despite the many conflicts Far more complicated detailed for wondering really what. Everybody's wondering about the food. Because that's what i talk about sure. That's what we're here for

NRDC's Dr. Vijay Limaye Discusses Measuring the Health-Related Costs of the Climate Crisis

"To the healthcare policy. Podcast i'm the host. David intra cosso with me today to discuss the climate crisis related health. Costs is dr. vj lemay climate and health scientists at the national resources. Defense council center. Dr lemay welcome to the program. Thank you dr maze by is of course posted on the podcast website on background. Twenty twenty set another global warming record this past year tight twenty sixteen as the hottest record year and strikingly warmer than twenty nineteen. For example average temperatures in some parts of the arctic last year were more than six degrees celsius higher than the twenty one thousand nine hundred eighty one to two thousand ten baseline average per no at twenty twenty seven. Us record with twenty two one billion dollar plus climate disasters. The previous record was sixteen and twenty seventeen toiling in some ninety. Five billion dollars in damages are more than double the forty one year average of forty five billion seventy events were linked to hurricanes and tropical storms concerning wildfires california suffered over ten million acres burned more than double the previous record set in twenty eighteen at four million acres adverse health effects caused by climate crisis. Events are on bounce well known for example in two thousand sixteen. The government published the impacts of climate change on human health in the us. And i recently cited lance and twenty twenty countdown on health report that concluded in part quote the world has already warned by one point. Two degrees celsius resulting in profound immediate and worsening health effects close quote nevertheless response. By thorough policymakers. Along with the health care industry remains far beyond inadequate. The best the recent congress recently concluded congress can do as produce a five hundred fifty page climate crisis report that drew no connection between the climate crisis and related effects. Imposed on medicare medicaid beneficiaries. Do likely in part to the fact. That neither med pack or mac. Pack independent gresham commissions given broad authority to address issues affecting. These programs has never addressed much less mentioned the climate crisis with me again to discuss climate crisis related. Health costs is the national resource. Defense counsels dr. vj lemay so at that As background vj. Let me begin by asking. If you can briefly describe the nrdc signed centers work shirt and. Thank you david for the invitation to speak with you and your listeners. I work at nbc. The natural resources defense council we are a profit organization working really to stay guard the earth. it's people plants animals and the natural systems on which we all rely. We combine the power of more than three million at rdc members across the country with the expertise of about seven hundred staffers that scientists like me but also lawyers policy advocates who are working together to protect clean air clean water and the natural systems on which we all depend so i work in the science center at entity see and science release the foundation of our work to protect people in the environment. We worked to understand environmental and human health problems working in interdisciplinary spaces in some of the work that we'll talk about today. In terms of connecting the dots between climate change in house is really the focus of my work. And i just have to say you know this period unprecedented on the scientific enterprise. It's more important than ever that we recognize the value that science brings to society and helping us to confront respond to some of these. Really urgent threats thank you. I appreciate that last point As we are well aware. Let me go to you recently. Published an article To your credit in health affairs Last month last month december issue was a theme issue on the climate crisis. I should say a health affairs polishes. Nineteen eighty-three had never previously addressed. Or excuse me. Nineteen one had never previously addressed this subject So again a -gratulations. Your article with your colleagues was titled estimating the cost of action and the economic benefits of addressing. The health harms of climate. Change But i wanna ask you specifically about that because you wrote in this essay quote unquote. There is currently a knowledge gap that must be addressed for more complete understanding of climate change related exposure response relationship. So explain to me what this knowledge gap is. Sure you know in your setup remarks. You mentioned the huge toll that climate and weather disasters inflicted on the united states last year. About ninety five billion dollars by the federal governments fresh estimate and well that's a staggering number as a health scientist. I'm an epidemiologist. I look at that figure and i wonder what's not included and the truth is that when our federal government is tracking the damage the climate change in reports like the billion dollar disaster list. It's actually not accounting for tremendous profound and sometimes irreversible damage to human house so there is a huge missing component. We think about the continuing and mounting costs of inaction on the climate crisis

Oxford's Vaccine

"Good vaccine news just keeps on coming on the backs of really promising news. From the pfizer. Biontech and madonna now oxford astrazeneca have announced the preliminary results from their phase three trials which showed overall seventy percent efficacy as reminder madonna and visor biotechs. Vaccines both currently show around ninety. Five percent efficacy but seventy percent is still very solid. That's about where dr fauci had been saying. He'd be very pleased to see. But i overall seventy percent. Because there's a weird quirk of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. That i as someone who is not an immunologist. Don't quite understand but hopefully we'll get more information on it in the coming days. Here's what i can tell you for now. The vaccine like the pfizer biontech one would need to be distributed in two doses however the first dose just needs to be half a dose for some reason. Doing a half dose on the first injection makes the whole vaccine overall more effective than if you got to hold doses quoting stat news. The preliminary results on the astrazeneca vaccine were based on a total one hundred. Thirty one covid nineteen cases in a study involving eleven thousand three hundred sixty three participants. The findings were perplexing to full doses of the vaccine appeared to be only sixty two percent effective at preventing disease while a half dose followed by a full dose was about ninety percent effective. That ladder analysis was conducted on a small subset of the study participants. Only two thousand seven hundred forty one a us based trial being supported by operation. Warp speed is testing the two full dose regimen. That may soon change. Astrazeneca plans to explore adding the half dose full dose regimen to its ongoing clinical trials in discussions with regulatory agencies spokesman told stat in an email and quotes and quoting from the new york times. The oxford scientists said they were still trying to understand why the vaccine was more effective at a smaller first dose. The first is supposed to prime the immune system while the second is supposed to boost its response while it seemed counter intuitive for a smaller i dose to be more effective. They said that strategy. More closely mimic. What happens with a real infection. End quotes peter openshaw professor of experimental medicine at imperial college. London explained to the associated. Press that vaccines. don't work. Like normal drugs where a higher dose produces more effects. The immune system is more complicated. Openshaw also notes that if indeed people do only need half a dose for one of the injections that's great news because it will be even cheaper to produce for more people. This was the vaccine candidate. That i was most excited about early on because it seemed like they kind of had a head start quoting the new york. Times astrazeneca's macos vaccine is designed to genetically altered in a dinner virus found in chimps. So that it harmlessly mimics the corona virus and provoke an immune response vaccine deploying. That technology has never won approval but the approach has been studied before notably in a small two thousand eighteen study of an experimental vaccine against the virus that causes middle east respiratory syndrome or mergers that viruses related to sars cov two the novel corona virus that causes covid nineteen so when covid nineteen emerged the team of scientists at oxford's jenner institute that had been leading the work on similar corona viruses. Had a head start once. The genetic code of sars cov two was published in early january. The oxford team sped to adapt their platform to the new corona virus and begin animal testing and quotes the other win in oxford. Astrazeneca's corner is unlike the pfizer. Biontech vaccine this latest one does not require any special refrigeration just standard storage and transportation temperatures of two eight degrees celsius or thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and it can be stored for up to six months. The moderna vaccine requires cooler temperatures of negative four degrees fahrenheit but then can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures after thawing in can be stored as such for a month. The pfizer biontech vaccine. Meanwhile requires dry. Ice to store at negative seventy degrees celsius or negative ninety four degrees fahrenheit s- that makes the oxford astrazeneca vaccine much more appealing for areas without the infrastructure or funding to sustain the pfizer. Biotech cold chain. And with that in mind. Astrazeneca is applying for early approval wherever it can as well as an emergency useless stained from the world health organization so that it can be made available in low income countries they plan to produce three billion doses next year and are committed to providing it at cost around the world through july. Twenty twenty one. The vaccine costs around three or four. Us dollars significantly less than the others late stage. Trials are continuing in the us. Japan russia south africa kenya and latin america and further trials are planned for other european and asian countries. So definitely more good news but watch this space for more

AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine is 90% effective on average

"We have such good news and among the top story is late. Stage trials showing the astrazeneca oxford covid vaccine can be up to ninety percent effective. Make terrell joining us now with the full details. Beg good morning good to see you. Good morning guys so another vaccine. Monday here astrazeneca reporting results from its pooled trials from multiple countries Showing that When you look at the data together you are more than ninety percent efficacy. It's a bit of a confusing result. Though because one dosing regimen showed that very high efficacy another showed sixty two percent of the so together. It's about seventy point four percent effective when you combine those two dosing regimens now. The difference was where you've got that ninety percent number that's when they gave a half does on the first dose and a full one on the second one together they are saying these are very positive data and they do plan to start submissions where they can around the world now they also say there was a large safety database for more than twenty four thousand volunteers in the uk brazil and south africa With follow up since april another thing. That differentiates this vaccine is it can be stored at fridge temperature. Thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and distributed using existing logistics the tremendous manufacturing capacity. They've made a lot of different partnerships So this vaccine could really add to supply. We are still digging through those data and understanding. Exactly how the different dosing regimens led to such different advocacy results. We'll talk with experts and bring that to you this morning. But the headline one of these dosing regimens more than ninety percent effective. Seventy percent when you put both of them together guys. Back over to you meg. I have so many questions for you. And i realize it's early and you're just going through all of this to you may not have the answers to any of this yet. But look ninety percent efficacy. That's really great to it doesn't compare it doesn't match up quite as well as we've seen with both pfizer and with moderna with the ninety five percents efficacy but ninety percent. That's really good. Sixty two not so great. What do you do. You have any idea if it had anything to do with where it took place Just geographically in terms of these phase phase. Three trial results. If it was different in south africa it was different in brazil. It was different in the uk or if it was age groups that were different. That also played into that as well or was it simply the level of dosing. When i've seen so far in the data and these i really woke up to they did release them overnight but we did not find out about them on embargoing advance which we sometimes do and gives us time to really dig through them So from the headlines. That i've had a chance to really dig into it really does seem like a dosing difference for some reason given that half those on the first dose and then a full dose on the second lead to that much higher efficacy And so something. I really want to understand the name. I've already been reaching out to vaccine experts this morning to try to get a sense for. Does that line up with what would make sense about how a vaccine works. And is there good explanation for that so we can really understand. Why difference. certainly. There's a huge difference between sixty two and ninety between ninety and ninety five. That's pretty good.

It gets hot and it gets colder. Have whatever. yeah but yeah. Let's let's listen jump into it man. I wanna i wanna get a quick check in on where things are when last we spoke. You were preparing a brand new art form. To be availed show and art show in tokyo. And you get all excited about that. Everything was getting ready to get going to figure out how the installation was gonna go. Phyllis in go in or you're happy with it. I went very very well. It happened on september first. Which is i still at this point. japan was kind of locked down. The no tourists can come into japan. Even right now noticing come in so it was only people who live here coming to the show so it wasn't packed way it would have been in the times but it still had a lot of people that came through. The show shows up for two weeks. We had because this japan they document everything so we found out he became to the show there. About five hundred seventy people came through the show over to period of time so that was decent. It would been you know three times that at least if it had been in normal times however it what was great about it it opened the door for other shows and for other opportunities. So i've been in meetings with with different companies about those other opportunities. I can't go deeper into discussion about that. But some really exciting things are happening. I've been having meetings e even this week dealing with The outcome of that. Well you know it was happened from that show and i have another show that will now take place in tokyo sometime in twenty twenty one so it's really been really wonderful. I am now working on new pieces to go into the new show It's just opened up some really interesting abilities. Some really excited about that on both ends. You say you have a new art form and people look at you little firs they come in. They see the work and they make a judgment call. What was cool about. This is that people came in to see the show and they are statement which is kind of curriculum by comes in. They read about the the work in the the work and those who really know photography from the past look at the work and say wow how is this done and that question has led to a lot of great meetings and has led to this new. Hopefully this new show happy and twenty twenty one. The other great thing about it is there other shows that happen and there was a big show in kyoto. Where had my exhibit. That happens called catastrophe and that happened two weeks after my show closed. That show opened up and i would love to be in that show next year. Hopefully that will happen. I did meet the. The people run kyoto goofy. They didn't see the show. I met them after it closed my show closed but hopefully out. I now have information to to show them mooring and go from there. So i invite them to my show that opens in two thousand twenty one because people need to see things versus just hear it so sometimes you if you hear something like okay. What is that you can't tell and to you see it. I've had again like five. Six means one company and they want to see the work. You know themselves so we had a meeting this week where they actually saw the work and then they got it. Now we've had like five meetings no virtually before but they hadn't seen in the work. They saw pictures of the show when it was in in kyoto but they didn't make it to the show this week for the first time ever They saw the work and that changed everything. So this is work. You must see tangibly. See to get it so excited about that. And how to launch that so

The Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam

"Was a sunny sixty six degrees when a Lisa, lamb arrived in Los Angeles on January twenty sixth two, thousand thirteen. It felt vastly different from the frigid winters back home in Vancouver Canada. Lisa was a student at the University of British Columbia. She had decided to spend her winter break traveling up the coast of California by train. This trip was a big opportunity for Lisa. She was fascinated by the film and fashion industries. So what better place to experience both then Los Angeles? Over the past year she'd gained some traction on her blog, a site where she discussed her favorite style and beauty trends. But Lisa also opened up to her followers about her personal life. At Lisa's parents were a recent theme in her blog. They had immigrated from Hong Kong Years Prior, and we're particularly worried about their daughter traveling through America alone. But at least had promised to call them every day to check in operating on a student's Budget Lisa booked a cheap hotel in downtown. Los Angeles about a twenty minute walk from union station. It was called these stay on main, but it used to go by a more infamous title the Sicel Hotel. When Hotel Your William Hanner built the Sel in nineteen, twenty four, he installed its marble lobby stained glass windows and Parisians. Sure. Hanner hoped these ornate features would attract socialites and businessman five years later, the Great Depression hit and over the following decades, the property fell victim to the economic disaster. While glamorous visitors continued to stay at the C. Soul in the nineteen thirties and forties. By the time World War Two had passed most guests were transients or low income citizens of the city. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel gradually became known as skid row it streets hosted thousands of homeless citizens. Skid row grew to be the epicenter of criminal and drug activity in Los, Angeles and the seasonal hotel was at the heart of it. Countless sexual assault cases, several murders, and over a dozen suicides have happened behind its doors Elizabeth short more famously dubbed. The Black Dahlia was rumored to have had a drink at the hotel the night of her murder in January nineteen, forty seven. Whether. Or not. She actually stepped foot into the sea soul her body was found only blocks away. In.
