Control Your Own Success by Taking Advantage of a Global Economic Shift
"And you believe in and by the way i wholeheartedly agree with you that we are in the midst of a global economic shift can you expound upon this for fire nation. I'm going to share something. Tony said in the simplest thing but he said humpty dumpty broke and you put it back together in the same way and i sometimes like listening. We both appreciate tony baton partner dear friend but sometimes it's really deep what he says and sometimes it seems really simple but it really has more meaning is the world is completely shifted. And it's not going back to the way it was and what a world shifts that much when cultures shift that much when we go from in person to online virtual exponentially grows and technology from that continues to grow. We're not going back to the way we were. And that means there's a huge global economic shift happening and money is flowing from different people to to new industries flowing out of old industries into new. And i just believe that if we don't Wayne gretzky the skater. He's from canada. Originally played here in the states to one of the best skaters of all time hawking matter wherever you're listening in the world he was asked once Why he's so good at hockey or white. How'd you do so well or win another championship. He said some people unfortunately skate to where the puck was some people in most skate to where the puck currently is he said i got really lucky and figured out had escaped where the puck was going and i think if we don't observe that there's an economic and a global shift we're going to escape where the puck was aware it is and those that get to come out ahead are going to where the puck is going and that's why we'll scream for mountaintops. It's time to explore time to investigate. See were money is flowing. See what industries are growing. Where where. The revolutions. The breakthroughs the the category kings the ground swell the wave. And i think when you do that. It's not as difficult as you think.

Misinformation About COVID-19 Planted a Seed for Online Anti-Asian Hate Speech
"Today marks one week since the mass shootings in atlanta that killed eight people including six asian women police have not yet labelled the attacks hate crime but we know that hate crimes against asian americans have been on the rise this year. Researchers at cal. State san bernardino at police data from sixteen american cities and found that anti-asian hate crimes more than doubled in two thousand twenty at the same time online. Hate speech against asians has also spiked as we think about these attacks. We have to ask. What do we know about online hate speech and how it translates to real world. Violence davey alba is a tech reporter at the new york times who covers misinformation. She's been following anti asian sentiment online during the pandemic it really started with a lot of the conspiracy is and misinformation around when the corona virus emerged and that seeded the idea that the public should be suspicious of asia and with the latest surge. In this last few months it turned into something more nefarious and it. Some of the hate speech and posts. That i've seen is really some terrible and vile stoff racists speech and a lot of it also included calls to violence against asians and have researchers been able to directly link. Those two things hate speech and the calls violence that we see online and the actual violence that we're seeing rise in the real world so what we do know. Is that the increase in volume of hate speech. Online as statistical predictor of real life violence. We've also seen that. Misinformation is linked to hate speech for instance. There's a study that came out month and it found that users who adopted the hashtag chinese fires were far more likely to pair it with overly racist hashtags. So you know you can kind of see that arc now of misinformation going to hate speech and going into real world violence. Let's talk about where this hate. Speech is popping up. Do we see different kinds of things depending on the platform. Yes we do these. These posts are in different places online. as i mentioned there in the most extremist corners of the internet so there are some telegram channels that i've seen that are dedicated to just making fun of asians and i'm kind of using a euphemism there. It's much more vile than just making fun. They use slurs. They use memes. Glorifying violence against asians and they sort of make it into a joke. Worth all. Turn it into a cartoon. But i've seen you know cartoons of asians being accused by hanging I've seen posts of pictures from the malay massacre where american soldiers are stomping on vietnamese people. And all of that stuff is glorified and pointed at as justified. Because you know people say this is rightful responses to the world having to deal with the pandemic that originated in china. I wonder what role the platform should be playing here. I know for instance. Facebook has a policy to take down posts that pose imminent harm but it seems like that could be hard to prove exactly and a lot of people who all misinformation nowhere the lines are so they get right up close to it and use certain tricks to sort of wink at these racist ideas or to spread misinformation but don't quite crossed the line. Sometimes it's not a straight line to harm but dotted one and there's stuff that skates really close to these notions that remain up and still contribute to this toxic conversation online.

A Medical Mystery And Patient Advocacy With Mackenzie Kimes
"Why don't we give people a little bit of back story. You are a nurse correct. Yes how long have you been. How have you been practicing. So i will have been a nurse for seven years on this july. So seven years. My background is mainly in pediatrics. Am a certified pediatric nurse So my story really comes from and my passion for nursing really comes from my own personal experiences I decided that. I wanted to go into nursing like in high school. And things like that Is really have a clue as to what i wanted to do. I actually was a national level. Figure skater up through college and so yes as ing. Thank you so. I was training like six hours a day six days. A week Traveling nationally internationally competitions. So that was like my huge focus in life at that point was to train and to compete and kind of work my way up the rankings and figure skating the and so that's kind of where my mind was and then That's kind of when all my health. Struggles started to begin was when i was in high school I had been having some pains. Gi issues I was getting abdominal pain. Every time i was eating. And i kept going back to the pediatrician like oh intestinal virus like it sometimes takes awhile to pass like i think everything is ok but just keep going. You'll be okay and it just kept nagging nagging. It wasn't getting any better. And as an athlete i mean i was training six hours bags so when i wasn't able to eat it was really my training. When you have to eat to keep up the calories alone that you were oh yes exactly and so. It was just affecting so many areas of my life and ironically. I was in florida on vacation with my family. When my pain just got like unbearable i could barely stand up straight and my parents were like we've had enough of this. We're going to go to the closest er and so they took me there and it actually was kind of laying a small community hospital and so they're like okay. We'll do some imaging things like that and they ended up doing a t. scan and they came back and you could tell that something was not right and they were like. We need to do some further testing. We saw something concerning on your skin but we don't want to jump to conclusions so we just have more testing that we need to do and so they ended up doing and ultrasound. And i just remember looking at ultrasound techs faced during this and she just kept getting closer and closer to the screen. Now i there's something there's something not right and i felt so scared and so afraid at the time because they weren't really being very vocal about what was going on so i was just kind of sitting waiting and after they kind of got all the testing done they came in and kind of sat me my parents down and they were like so we are just like a small community hospital and based off of what we see on the scans on. You have a two liter mass of blood in your abdomen and we don't really know we don't really know where it's like. What caused it or why. It's there but we are not equipped to treat you here so we need to transfer you and at the time. They knew that the mass was related to my female track system. But they just didn't really know what was causing it and so it took a long time for a hospital to accept me because on one hand i was only fifteen at the time so i was technically a pediatric patient but was having a very non pediatric problem. But then the adult hospitals wouldn't accept me. Because i was only fifteen and so it a long time to kind of even just get hostile to accept me and so they ended up taking two on the closest teaching hospital. Bear was pediatric floors located within an adult hospital. Also it was like the perfect fit. Because i was able to kind of see all sides of things and so on when i went there more. Scans things like bad and we're seeing all sorts of specialists and they came to the conclusion that i had what is called uterus elvis and so essentially i've honestly never heard of that. Yes it's pretty rare and uterine. Anomalies are not super rare in women but my form of the anomaly is very rare and so essentially how they explained it to me was when you are fetus developing female. Start with two separate female tracks. And then they're supposed to fuse together so mine never actually used. It stayed in two separate tracks and on my one side. Do you mean like your uterus. Never fully fused together or yes. Okay so i had to uterit- technically and two services and two internal baginda canals.
We're A Bunch Of Jerks!
"As a nickname for the soda clerk who operated soda fountains as late as the nineteen fifties. The soda jerk was a title inspired by the jerking action Server used to swing the soda out handle back and forth when adding soda water fountain bedroom. Are we sure people didn't just not like him very much and because most of my quits today is going to be based on soda jerk stuff. This is the first ever jerk off so soda. Jerks prepared milkshakes and other treats using drink mixers that featured spindles and agitators to fold air in for smooth and fluffy results served. Tall glasses soda. Jerks were charged. Not only with preparing delicious treats for customers but with entertaining them as well. The responsibilities were many such as breaking and draining and one hand carving chicken remembering orders pulling the correct spigots and spindles on their drugstore soda fountains but most of all the new york times reported. The prime requisite of their station is the ability to bandy words. Okay like t say weird slang bumpy not not only bartenders but talkative. Very very talking and like fun. New slang and without the alcohol without the alcohol it's hundred entertain. People that are sober really. Is these guys managed it though because soda jerks became known across the country for this kind of isotopic slang hosting wordsmiths with gift for puns and rips at a time when the united states was nuts for all things ice cream. It says the terek shea something new so every they were all nuts for everything ice cream. They were at once. Consummate showman innovators and freelance linguists. At the drugstore stage rights michael carts welts of the american driving quote. American soda jerks became the pop culture star of the gilded age. I hope they were cunning linguists if they have any chance in the patron quiz. Oh so the colorful jargon. The soda jerk verbal shorthand for calling out. Orders is part of putting on a show for customers. The orders consisted of the method of preparation the number and size of the order the basic soda fountain item and any special instructions such as shake one and a hey and spit on it now. Don't don't spit on my food things. So that is a strawberry shake with raspberries on top. Oh shake one in the hey which means raspberry or strawberry shake and spit on it. Which means respite spit on it mean raspberries or to spit on it mean raspberries because that guy's comes never stopped Berries or read a little bit of this is gross. My hands were full. I only keep the raspberries and my mouth. Maybe it's because he's been punched in the face of often as bit as red lake raspberries down to the bar with old bloody lip. Soda fountains had a handbook of recipes. They had met a memorized called. Mr boston's guide but also hundreds of variations were created on the fly by the creative soda jerks. I've a cool picture. That is a lovely stocker. That i used on our website once cool. Yeah probably. that's what i thought. It was a real bar. So i made it a background image. Later on it became a dive bar right so by the nineteen fifties capitalism unfortunately all but killed old time soda fountains the increase in technology and the wyss to expedite helped push the jerks out the door. Yeah that and they were jerks but by then diners. The new big. Hang out the good old greasy spoon of your was the replaced the soda fountains but they kept some of the same language in peppered in some of their own. Yeah the ones with roller skates. Still brought you a milkshake. Yup and they also had some cool jargon and slang that they use themselves so similar visiting a foreign country where is not spoken diner. Lingo is virtually unknown outside of the united states. That makes perfect sense. I never really thought about it but it does make sense. I mean it's hard to come up with worse slang for something. That's already called spotted. Dick you traveled to. Ireland and scotland is uc diners there. I didn't i think that the only place in europe you could probably find an american style diner where they use slang thinking somewhere weird and germany. What is the irish term for boiled with cabbage country. You go to you go to some small local pub type restaurant type something like that. They all have slang because kitchen focus. Kitchen be light hearted tongue in cheek and sometimes even risque phrases could be heard in wide use in busy diner during the nineteen twenties continuing on well into the nineteen seventies. So a bulk of that time. All of it steve was alive. Well i mean it. It lows continued on into the eighties and nineties. Because didn't jordi lafforge do like a diner. Lingo thing on reading rainbow or some crap. I generally the fords did reading rainbow. What a couple years ago. There was something about it was the face of of a bunch of the more you know shows for a long time literally never watched it never heard of it. Didn't know he was on. Burton is a main just. Maybe three years

European Union Pushes for 'Digital Sovereignty'
"Like many other governments. The european union passed a massive coronavirus recovery package setting aside trillions of dollars to get the economy back up and running on the other side of the pandemic but also included in what is extensively a covert relief. Plan is a more than one hundred and fifty billion dollar pledge to bolster the technological independence one of the plans. Big goals is for europe to make up about twenty percent of global chip sales by twenty thirty. Which would be double their current market. Share it's all part of the blocks broader ambition of catching up to countries like the us and china when it comes to technology for more on this we turn to our reporters do. Hey stu thanks for being here. Thanks for having me okay. So why is the eu making this pledge. Now what's been going on in the tech sector that europe feels. It needs to address one of the things that the pandemic really showed was how dependent european technology is and other parts of the world especially for things like computer chips. So there's a global chip shortage right now and one of the reasons that there's been an unexpected surge for things that require computer chips so we're talking about laptops and tablets is part phones for for people who are doing remote work and schooling. But another thing that you might not think about requiring a lot chips cars cars now required dozens of chips for things like controlling the engine transmission. Backup cameras infotainment systems stuff like that and europe has a huge car industry. Yet you're thinking we're thinking companies like mercedes and bmw. Volkswagen and some of these companies has had to have to cut production and even furlough workers idol factories because the bill the cars. Because there aren't enough chipped going round in this world so the idea behind this is to have the european semiconductor companies have greater presence in the world so that these car companies don't have to go to places like the united states and asia by chips rate and i think when we think of the major global players in tack we think of the us we think of trying to and others we don't necessarily think of the e us tech scene. So what does the industry look like. They're now and how likely is push to work. As far as semiconductors are concerned the us and asia really dominate the sector. So you think of big companies like intel and does samsung. Tsmc there either in the us or asia. So you're trying to play catch up right now so you're does have a couple of big semiconductor companies like annex p. and am allen. The netherlands infineon in germany. But they are sort of in niches of the semiconductor industry. They focus on things like making the machines that make chips for instance or for specialized chips cars or industrial uses. They don't have the big chips that go into data centers or laptops or smartphones. Like the us or asia dies. So that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to really spur. This hub homegrown industry. But there's not a lot to start with and the learning curve for developing these really tough technology that requires really expensive manufacturing facilities. It's really steep and it's a nine years. That's a short amount of time to try to become a bigger player in the global chip industry right nine years till bat. Twenty thirty goal. They set for themselves. So why do they see this. As such a big priority. One of the stakes for the eu. One of the things That they realize was that volkswagen for instance they had to furlough workers idol factories because they couldn't get enough chips and they had to get those chips from other parts of the world. So this is a really really big deal for their economy. If some of their biggest industries can't operate because they're reliant in other regions. That's a huge problem for them. And that's that's been a story of their tech sector. In general for the past several years steel is the eu the only government taking steps like this or are we seeing similar action from others. The eu is not alone. And that's going to make its attempt to catch up and the chip industry even tougher one country. That's poured a lot of resources into advancing. Its domestic chip industry china. They set up. These huge government finds sometimes worth tens of billions of dollars in an attempt to catch up with places like the us and taiwan. Now the us in response they recently. The congress recently passed its own legislation to sponsor projects to spur the us chip industry. And each of these projects might be worth billions of dollars. They might get billions of dollars in tax taxpayer aid or financial incentives to build facilities in america to try to stay ahead of places like china. So that's going to be a really tough thing for europe to do is first of all the competing against two very well funded region and china and the us plus they're starting from from a smaller base and that's a couple of countries working to build up sort of technological independence. What does it mean that. So many governments are focused on that. What kind of impact could that have right now. We're talking about the potential decoupling of the tech sector. So there's been tariffs and expert controls between the us and china basically for something like chip industry is really important for a couple of reasons. One is military. The most advanced fighter jets and tanks and drones require really sophisticated chips. Artificial intelligence requires skated chip. So the wars of the future going to be determined could be determined by semiconductors on top of that there is a economic independence. If you're an apple samsung you need the most advanced chips to build your best laptops and smartphones. So we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars at stake here. If countries can't trade technology with with each other we're gonna see slower development of things like electronics. So we're talking billions of dollars at stake and possibly slower development if people have countries aren't willing to share technology with each other.

She likes the menu or she doesn't like driving in the city or after dark or on major highways and as you can. Imagine are puts a lot of strain on the stuff. We can do when there's. Not a plague. So my question was. How do I help her deal with her anxieties whenever they flare up and could keep us from doing something really fun. I really appreciate any insight. You guys have a love. Your Bose have a great day bye-bye. Well with the restaurant, saying you can just point out things on the menu that she would like.

They had the money to really improve the design that they had actually started playing with again. And this massive this I massively successful. Rollerblades skate was the lightning. Tr'S S In this pair of skates the they basically had alerted a novel flaws There was fiber fiberglass. Used to make the frames. Criminals were better protected. The skates were a little easier to put on and And adjust and make stronger breaking and they were placed in the rear. The success of the lightning trs basically Made other inline skating. Companies appear at such as ultra wills oxygen k. two and others then in nineteen. Yeah then in one thousand nine hundred nine macro and Arrow blade models came into play Rollerblade INC produced these and These I gates fastened with three buckles instead of long leases. That needed threatening. I think I actually had a pair of Matt Macro or ero blades. Before but like kid I had like the ones that you get attached to your shoes instead of. You know how those were my first pair skates so I can't really be like you know. Compare them to another pair skeets hidden awkward. Yeah yeah that makes sense and I felt I remember what I it's just I remember. It was around the time lengths. You know those VHS Gateway James weren't and they're get in line fuller play and cool music video like is. It looks really cool but extreme student bates your such to like basically no one die. But let's see now here. We are and nineteen ninety. The lighter skates were That were made by broiler blank. King Rollerblade Inc Came into play and they switch the those Those lighter blades out switched lighter blades. Basically took the place of Of the other skates that were being produced by them with They were reinforced with a thermoplastic. Resin rather than your than The Cali durant polyurethane compounds. That were previously used. Yeah sorry about that. Yeah I'm just guessing. I'm not actually with the words. Gotcha so that and because of that. It basically make fifty times lighter or reduce the the way to the skates by fifty percent and then last but not least in nineteen ninety three. We have active breaking technology which was created by rollerbladed. Luke of course They developed the ABT or active breaking technology a fiberglass post which attached to one or end of the top of the boot and at the other end To a rubber break and hinged on the chassis on the back of the will. The skier had Basically was able to straighten one leg to stop and drive the post into the break which then hit the ground and skaters Which have been tilting their foot back to make contact with the ground before the ATS. Were now able to use this new system so the new break design essentially increased safety That allows tomorrow. Let's Bellevue to right. Yes yes in. I guess if you trialed skates in disgrace that we have now. You'll you'll fill the biggest difference between that. No hair actually got because I remember that being fairly easy to use as Brazil nuts ray but go ahead just going to say that now escapes Far As the history of skates skates are important but As far as like going to the roller rinks roller discos. Earning all that One of the key components of being in the disco or at the Roller Rink was the music. And were that the next thing I was going to cop cover around. What was the history of roller the the history and the importance of music in Roller Skating? Which is a a An article which is found on moonlight a roller weighing dot com around This is An article that I particularly found interesting because they mention or Oregon organised playing the piano organised plane and roller rinks before the introduction of of deejays such In Roy that s okay. I'm just going to roll with it. That was not on purpose. No worries But yeah you wouldn't think that Playing the Oregon would be synonymous with roller skeeving. Back in the day but it was And of course The earliest known date the earliest time we can think of the When music and skating were put together was when Joseph Merlin came in on his skates in the masquerade with his violin. Of course crash into that Merrick Wall but there's mission other times when skating and music been plagued with this come into play and plated played a key part of each other had the symbiotic relationship with one another I can think of Sun like video. Work Griffey late nineties or early. Two Thousand Bray definitely but Anyone who has been to a Skating Rain Gore Gone to a public session for like her skating or going to kid's birthday party for skating. They know that the that the music is an important part of roller skating. And it's is excuse me I don't think I think I don't think the experience would be the same without the music and I can attest to that because I would. I would go to school depot. Which was used to be down in. Sirri does By the serious lawyers used to go the same place a while. So you know about okay. Yes yeah I miss that place and they replaced it with but okay.

Baby Yeah so So yeah so yeah. This is when Skating made second big boom. And in its within its time that had been birthd- and With that came the marriage of disco and roller skating and over. Four thousand roller discos in operation in Hollywood and began making roller. And they'd be in Hollywood. Excuse me Over four thousand roller discos were in operation in a Hollywood began making roller movies Yeah so one lots yet. I know like at the time it was like just as you say. Thank you like starbucks or date. Stop but the to me. It's like wait at many never earn. Isn't it I say and I'm like in Hollywood that mainly no that is Sarah is this but Yeah Getting back to the the time line In one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. There was a redesigned for roller skates. By Scott Olsen and Brennan. The brothers Played Hockey and lived in Minneapolis Minnesota. They found the anti pair roller skates in. It was basically the early ski. The one of the earliest Pair of skates that Used in line wills rather than you know the four wheels that we talked about earlier. George fills mar like 'cause I used to rollerblade and also that is Tamar akin to actually ice skating. Mercure movement is a lot more recently ray and you would think since there. That ice cream was a big thing back then that you know it actually would have caught on her. You know there would have been a way to make it so that it would have been easier to do this on wheels but We've NC the redesign of roller skates until nineteen seventy nine when the weather's basically decided to play with the in line design of Escapes again and the they they used poly yours. Rain urethane wills. An attached the The hockey to their hockey boots and added them Roberto break to their to their new design. Okay I see what they're doing. They're like they actually checked. Just like this idea of having dry skates and they've looked at the air hockey exactly and they're like okay. Well how do we can make this and this in get it in the middle ground right so then of course after that In nineteen eighty three we get rollerblade INC from Scott Olsen and One of the brothers and the term rollerblading knit that the sport of inline skating Mid that the sport of inline skating because of rollerblading INC was the only manufacturer in in line skates for so long for a long time so the first mass produced rollerblades Were had some design flaws unfortunately They were kind of difficult to put on and adjust Davor prone to Collecting debris won't more like dirt and Also getting moisture in the ball bearings in the wool accurate. That would probably have sucked. I later like these Probably a lot of those issues that convinced right not only that but the wolves they also have become easily damaged. And the brakes. Came from Old Roller Skate toe brakes and were not very effective. So own not like that. The Bat a being on the back is that allows you to actually time time to train to lean for Romney. Yeah no I I you know you definitely eat some. You know just doing that. So like I used to lash As might try and be like okay. Maybe no snow. That was foolish. That was me being a child. It was so fun to finish was very useful for getting around Okay Yeah it. Kinda was until know great this all when I was rollerblading. I was living over by Lakewood Mall. Rich for thoughts not local.

I'm looking at A store the new store article I Posted to the gaming fix age I guess Yes her name is Ana Coto And her boyfriend was filming her while she was Skating down the block. Huge Jennifer Lopez Jenny from the block so Ever since people have been seeing that video which went viral on Tiktok people have been basically ordering tons and tons escapes or They're sitting around from dancing to. That's pretty cool. Yeah so a lot of people right. Now are probably at home. Waiting on a pair of roller skates in quarantine Thanks to that video on Tiktok and that inspired me because I saw a one scaling down the street not too long ago In that inspired me to bring the story to you guys So we're going to talk a little bit about the brief history will not really breath but the history of Roller skating or The history of Skates General Roller Skates. Alright and The first person to Have actually have been known to wear pair escapes. His unknown. This person was a someone in Holland in a known it was an unknown Dutchman. Who decided he wanted to go ice skating in the summer but Ice Skating was basically Not something you can do in the summertime for obvious reasons so all this music have ice. I mean trashy through that probably meaning. Duke means you're dead and especially if you don't have any my addicts around you right and speed crashes. The next person who I'm going to bring up actually dig crashed into a mirror on roller skates. But the yes on that Sir but the unknown Dutchman Since he couldn't state in the wintertime in the summertime because it wasn't lakes weren't frozen He created the burst dry. landscaping Well Skate and it was created utilising Nelson and wooden spools Knelt down to a strip of wood and attached to. He attached them to issues and they were called. S- killers That I've been writing to a vast obvious question Germans. This was a in the early seventeen hundreds the date yet. I date actually isn't quite well. Known. There's a lot of speculation on the IRA or definitely looking at eighteenth century towards the enlightenment is people have more free time. Yes so I mean yeah something like that would come out of that. And then the second person to be known to have been escape was a person named Joseph Merlin and he was attending a masquerade party wearing the the skates Which were basically made out of will were metal will boots And he wants to make a grand entrance at this masquerade. So he came in wearing the skates and he was playing his violin at the same time. Unfortunately the FIDDLER The skating fiddler's Didn't exactly I guess. Create a braking system in his new invention because he crashed into a mirrored wall and now entire mirrored wall. Yes wall out all trying to visualize account Many charts for club. Why towards this guy as all backward Ryan you know doesn't actually state what what What actually happened. It doesn't state how the size of the marriage wall but it says it will wall so I'm guessing it was pretty big and it was you know not hard to miss this and then in eighteen eighteen There was the first roller ballet and Berlin. Roller Skates Were introduced into a German ballet called a deer maller odor dive. Ferguson under which translates to the artist or winter pleasures and this ballet was. Es and the reason why this ballet resorted to roller skating was because the Performance called for ice gaining but since it was a impossible to do that at the time since it was most likely summer They introduced roller skates substitute. And then in yes really curious they that came out of life just trying to bring out alleged leader right now Eater has actually inspired a lot of different inventions. Oh you gotta get creative like I used to the when you're in elementary school. I mean you do all not just need plays used to do a lot of those like all. Tear nothing major but yeah you have to figure out ways to make alludes space O K. Yeah definitely I know that there was there's there's different effects that people would Event different things or used different did things to create different effects like safe thunder and lightning in a in a crowded theatre During play back in the in the seventeen eighteen hundreds when there was an you know I mean. Famous example is a chandelier Jabre. That was actually a huge thing. I never got soon mike himself. But I've watched a few good calls on her by Lindsay Ellis about a film versus the actual stage play. Because I have really booked actually. I know enough of the bag. It's yet so skates were actually invention of theater or at least we've got harshly at the Axel. They were interested. They were introduced into theater in eighteen. Eighteen are they were invented prior to that. So we've got their use not ninety nine crushing. Have we roller all right? We're getting to that and eighteen. Nineteen Roller Skates Got Their first patent and France from a sealed pat. Pinta Belen Escape was made of what of wooden soul of that attached to the Bob? Mobutu and basically had four a two wills rogue made out of cops. Excuse me for two rollers made out of copper wood or ivory and arranged in US straight single line then in eighteen twenty three the relief toe which was introduced by Robert John. Tires of London He patented a scope escape. Call the relief show with five goals in a single row. Which is what we now know as an inline skate and the relief oh was unable to follow a curved path and like the end lights skates that we have today so I guess the the relief to had to go back to the drawing board or well this skating rank then the an eighteen fourteen we had barmy. Barmaids wills interesting with so who am beer taverns that actually makes at least and because the not drive the derby that I don't think we're actually think that's like set. I don't know when that was by now. So that just been rich. Mainly I see the connection. Yes Apparently a beer tavern known as Chorus. Heo On your Berlin had barmaids on roller skates. That would serve patrons and this was apparently a good decision to give Give their their their barmaids Skates because the size of the beers and beer halls in Germany Were rather large and Yeah definitely not a country of its mirror and this gave dried landscaping public. Boot Publicity boost so Few years later down the line. We get public rinks. Public rings opened in the and the floral hall and in the Strand Strand of London then in eighteen sixty three an venturing James Templeton and American Found a way to make a very useful pair skates Pembleton skates had two parallel sets of wills one under the ball of the foot and one under the hill. The foot and the four wills were made of the wooden box. Skeeving box would be made of boxwood and Worked under rubber springs. Pembleton design was basically the first dry landscape that could Maneuver in a very smooth curve and the birth of the modern for willed. A Roller Skates This basically allowed for Turns and the ability to skate backwards. So that was basically How scared Scott an overhaul and yeah three and became to be known as the US today. eighteen eighty four Pinball burying wills were invented The the the pinball bearing wills remained a her remain for rolling down places. Easier and made skates lighter then in nineteen o to the Coliseum and Chicago. Open the public skating rink and over. Seven thousand people attended the opening night. That was looks pretty cool. The A lot of people would actually attend that and nineteen o eight Madison Square Garden in New York. Became Skating Rink Hundreds of rings in opening in nineteen opening then at the United States and Europe followed after that point The sport was basically becoming really popular then various versions of Roller Skates.

Indicating those sounds indicating through my sound. That is that is that is when we put our experts on the hot seat. Bobby Answer Grace's questions Lisa which experts we've put on the hot seat. I I am going to say boss. Because Neal is a little judgy came in right away. I'm an ice skate. Judge and I'm like WHOA due to judge. I see I see what you did there. All right that's as good a reason as any grace what's your first question for a bash. St Can you tell me about your job? What is it typical daylight who I liked that question so my typical day starts really early in the morning because I teach my students before school at an ice rink. So get up at about four o'clock and I'm on the ice four in the morning or in the morning four in the morning four in the morning. It's very quiet. And then we head to the rink. I warm up my students first and foremost and then I'm on the ice teaching them from five. Am till about seven forty five. Wow how did you get involved in ice skating introduce skate when you're a kid I did? I started skating because I saw Tolan Dean. How're British ice dancers on television? And I nagged my parents to take me to the ice rink and I started skating when I was three. Wow there's a four in the morning and there's three year old on skates. I'm learning a lot today. Okay grace back to you NIA. Is there something you really love about your job well? I used to ice skate when I was younger. So what I love is watching. People do the moves that I couldn't do like I could never do a triple toe loop and seeing that. You know three times a year at the competitions that I judge is really exciting and just seeing all the families come together and to really nice culture and environment to be in to be able to escape for your job it helps. I mean I think the big part of the trainee is to not get too emotional about the performances. Because when you're watching somebody do something. Really incredible like a like a a triple Lutz. Or something you know you're you get really pumped up. The music is driving. You and you really can't show any emotion when you're a judge because you've got parents surrounding you and they really want their kids to do really well. So if you look like you're favoring one person in the other That's really bad so you have to try to stay as neutral and professionals possible fast. Is there a skater? Who IN SPIDER? You UAE definitely? I was very inspired by escape at Cold Suray abundantly. She was a French figure skater and she really changed the game with figure skating because she was what we call a rebel so she did a few illegal elements like the backflip competition. And she always will the coolest costumes and she had really colorful makeup and she really broke boundaries. In what we'll figure skating was so I really looked up to her. I thought she was really cool. She was also the first one to do it on ice. No I don't think she was. All carpeted different sport. Fash can you tell me about the different jumps in figure skating? How are they different? Well jumps a kind of graded in terms of how many revolutions you do. What Direction you take off. So everything starts with the waltz jump which is half a revolution which is about one eighty degrees and that takes a Ford and then you land backwards then you progress to a South Cal. I call it a sad cow. Well you do a full three sixty. Before you do your one eighty so jumps have different takeoffs and different landing. Sometimes you'll land jump in the position to take off for another jump which is called a jump combination. The hardest jump is a Lutts because you go into it one direction and then you pivot use your topic and you jump the other direction loop jump is probably my favorite jump ego from backwards backwards and you use your edge. Not Your Toe Pick. Neil what is the most surprising thing you've learned about ice skating? Guess what surprised me as well a while ago if you know but They change the scoring system so it used to be out of six points and now it can be up to three hundred points. So there's a table of different moves you can do like vastly mentioned a flip. Sal Cow Lutts. There's a toeloop. All of these different moves have a different man. Points scale values trite. And so you have to. There's a a table and that table changes over time and that's something that I'm still getting used to because every year I have to get trained and re certified to be an ice skating judge. So that's something that's always something I have to keep learning and keep up to date on five state. Can you tell me about what were the first gates made out of the first skates were made out of bones? They weren't very versatile. And when these first gators were on the ice it wasn't autistic or they weren't dancing sheely just to get from A to B Neil. Do you have to train to become a judge? Good question great question so the first thing is it helps to have skate experience. You don't have to be at an Olympic level but at least at college really helps you have to take some tests that show that you know as Russia saying what what a what a flip is You you need to know the what side of the edge that you're looking for so two edges on On escaped the left edge right edge and so knowing what side the skater is skating on You you can really Take no on. How precise and how Could QUALITY THAT. Kinda jump is. Hey either one of you tell me. Are there any rules about the kind of music that you have to use where.
"skating" Discussed on The Dental Hacks Podcast
"Hacks nation. Welcome back to another episode of the dental heck shorts now one of the things that that we were trying to do with this quote unquote rebrand is to bring the stories of regular dentists to To our listeners. More the to not just dental stuff but stuff that you do outside of dentistry and in perfect congruity with that a couple of weeks ago I. I saw video of one of my facebook friends photos and video. Her name is Dr Market. Fr- Margaret Frankel Margaret. Welcome to the show. Thank you Allan Works. So so excited. Dina Meyer exactly with her also denegrating. So what I saw was that you guys do together. I mean you practiced dentistry together but you also do together now. What I'm assuming is a synchronized skating team is that correct? That's correct that's correct. It's okay so I had a friend in college. I went to Miami of Ohio. It for Undergrad. And they had a killer skating team right in so I didn't know anything about it until L.. This friend of mine was on and she was going all over the country. Doing great stuff. And I'm like I. I had never seen anything like it but you guys do this together. I want to hear everything about it. So so how long have you guys been skiing. Well deny you can. You can tell I'm getting we've both been getting a very large Iran. Okay and we hitting a long time together meaning. I put my first set of ice skates on it. believe it or not at eighteen months because land mama I I either. Yeah okay is. Skating is a family like a big time for like. I had a friend from dental school whose entire family was insane about ice escape. So Yeah Oh yeah. We both come from ice skating families. Yes both of us. So I've been skating since I was ten. Okay okay. We've been skating together almost that long as well. Yep since your kids is that right yeah okay so you guys have known known each other for a long time. Then we have. DNA has always been a better. Ice Skater than I am. And she's now she actually coaches are team name. Okay well so my assistant during the day and on the weekends. She's my ice skating coach. Okay so we have already awesome relationship. That's so so wild dynamic. I'M NOT GONNA lie. It's totally wild dynamic that that like because these are in it sounds like the skating is a really big part of your life to this is like this. I mean what I saw was you had. I think just won or placed in some kind of amazing like Tell us a little bit about the team. And what what. What did I see on facebook so so our team is basically made up of a bunch of us that have been skating together since we were younger And as adults what's we had been away from it for some time and we decided to darted adult team and reacquaint our friendships and be together and have some fun on and we've been doing it for about ten years now with some coming and going and we compete on a national level. So you talked about Miami of Ohio. We have have skaters that have gone through Miami Synchronized Skating Program World Travelers world competitors. And now. We're in our we're almost middle-aged and we're doing this Atta at a master's level it's called. It's very polite but it's the the the Old Lady Competitive Competitive feels but you know we. We grew up skating. And we've got some. We've got some amazing amazing skaters and we traveled around the country. Doing it okay. This is this is so it's okay. It's it's really fascinating because here's the thing like I mean i. I really enjoy my team and I actually enjoy spending time with him but the bottom line is I'm not I'm not my assistant. Isn't my coach on the weekends. In and Eh you guys. It sounds like you guys knew each other before you were a dentist Margaret. Oh yes well. Before when we were children we would travel around the country together her and deny actually when we were kids Dina was on A higher level teams. But we knew each other. We would travel together. Our families would travel together for competitions on the weekends. So I've known Dina since I was a little girl wild okay. So outside of skating like dis this narrow world outside of Skating Ministry. That's our world scaling up very good point. Did you Margaret. How did you come into dentistry? Did you know you were going to be dentist when you were a kid. So my fa- I took over my father's dental pressure okay. So half of us right like Over Dad's practice but he was. I mean we run into that all the time. Dina how did you. How did you get in Dentistry Actually during high school I visited the vocational occasional school. And it just was something that I thought I was GonNa really enjoy. I did not want to go to college because I did want to continue coaching skating. So if I went away to college that was going to put me away from it so I wanted to stay at home in do something that I thought I would enjoy and I I. I've enjoyed it ever since I started it. So the connection the dental connection is almost by chance. Even though you guys were friends from way back doc is that right absolutely so you know I since I've been skating with Dina on the team and she's been coaching. I've said to her. You come work for me at love to work with you and and do you know is very loyal to a dental practice. She was the office manager and an assistant there for many years. Do Not us and the dentist retired heard recently and I said come and you said okay. We'll try it and it's been awesome. Oh my gosh what a great story I mean what am I so the reality is you guys were skating and she was it. You were in different practices before that sounds like. I guess they didn't get that part of it so it's not like you guys. Have you guys have been skating together. Much longer than you've been working together. Is that right. Yeah and yeah. Dina's a recent addition to Richard Frankel Dentistry but it has been and from my perspective. It's been a blast. I still have fun. I've enjoyed it all right. So so the thing that everyone. That's listening for stuff is amazing. I kinda WanNa hear hear about like what what kind of time commitment it's GonNa take but I gotta ask this. I'm like how weird is it to have like a person you knew as a kid in and actually someone who was skating at a lower level than you be your boss. How frigging weird is that? Well I thought I was going to be really weird at first I was a little nervous but oh you know what it really. It's not weird at all. It's actually seems very normal and natural. I don't know it's just weird. It probably a testament to the team like the team there because like when you can make a culture that's comfortable and we talk about this on the show all the time. It's you know the culture at the office is everything season and so it sounds like it. Sounds like you've done a good job with them. I try I was a little nervous about the dynamic as well because I obviously don't want to jeopardize is my relationship outside of work with Dina but I try to put everyone on an even playing field. We truly are a team. I couldn't do what I do without an amazing the word assistant kind of socks. Don't you agree or agree. It doesn't it doesn't they're they're like like your right hand because I'm left handed. So they're my. I'm literally sitting in my office right now. And I knew I was going to be podcasting Several several interviews today so I came into the office. I like my setup at the office but lo and behold I two -mergency call last night and like Bob and be there so so I came in a little earlier and you know what what I was going to do it alone because have you ever. Have you ever seen an emergency alone or without the assistant and it's like it's like you've got four left feet. It's just the worst thing ever we're looking for twenty minutes and your assistant loves that too because you trash join because you don't know where anything is and everything so. I texted my my sister. He lives much closer to work than I do. And I just kind of floated that pastor and she was like. I'll be there on your because I I was miserable so I mean literally it is it is like a family and and you know that was probably a poor choice on my part to to set that up but it sounds like you guys really work well together on a lot of different levels. I like that I really liked that. Yeah it's it's I don't know it's really cool. I mean I get to work with a friend which could sound like you know messy. But it's it's not I think if both of you were like cognizant of what our responsibilities are to that relationship work yes so when is like how often often you guys practice once a week. Okay okay how long the practice. I'd say two hours with a little bit of an an office kind of instruction and then an hour and a half on ice okay. I mean that's not nothing that's like. How often are competitions? Is there like a competition season or is it year round or yes so the competition season runs from November to the end of February. Okay so we dinners. We generally go to four competitions a year. Okay like what is there. Is there a league. I mean you talked about being the masters of it but I'm like how. How does it like where teams come from are they from all over the place? Yes All over the United States so You know we we compete. It's through the US figure Skating Association it's managed by them but it's US synchronized skating So it is a big national organization. Then that's judged by the same judges basically that are Olympic level And it's it's serious. It's serious skating. Were decorated the the other end of that competitive. You Know Age Group for listeners. If you've never seen it I it's it's maybe hard to picture it it it is very serious. It's it's it's a like I used to go watch it. When I was in school? I was kind of blown away. And it's like it was a way for for basically Gli at that time college student who had been skating their entire life to keep doing it but doing another different and I mean like the team part of it has man I mean. It's there's a lot of moving parts from what I can see in so it would take a lot of practice. It makes a lot. It takes a lot of. I mean it would take a lot of time and effort to do that. Guys guys do you guys have. What is your relationship as as you know the your dental relationship? The other people on the team how do they how do they relate to that. What do they think of that? Well I my best friend actually from growing also skates. Yeah so it. Gets you know. The the relationships are intertwined like many levels but She's super excited..

"skating" Discussed on Swiss and Chips

Like, I mean, how did you feel to go there is it dangerous to walk the path and so on or would you recommend to everyone children out, those two behalf to have any knowledge or obviously you went with real Swiss. No, it's true. Because when you say go ice skating on a frozen lake off in the mountains. I'd first impression might be dangerous. But it's really kind of someone checks out the ice. I it's very safe thing to do the work. There is completely fine. You have to walk on sny. But it's very it's sort of prepared poff. I think. Well on the website. They say don't take a posture. But we did take this show with us with some of your family, and it was absolutely fine. Anything is looking you're going slightly downhill on the way back yo going uphill. Yes. So it's not a big problem, but your arms my ak- bit by the end of it. Yes. But is it slippery or dangerous? Slippery was. Thank you find. And then how is it with dice gates? Maybe you can explain a bit more the ice skates. So do I have to bring my own. And so if you if you're right, then by all means bring them you can rent them there. I read on the website that they had two hundred and fifty pounds of ice skates. And I I personally expected big crowds of people big queues. But it wasn't that too. I mean, there was never quite a few people. But I'm we got there about an hour and a half after opened after the first cable comments up and. It you have to bring cash basically, so you can pay for the ice skates. Eight francs bring cash and the only thing I would say was an hour and a half into the first days opening they sold out of my shoe size. So I took a size bigger wasn't a problem. But then when we took on skates back, those quite a lot of people waiting and the guy who has renting them run up to me and said, how'd you skates to return to think, you think you think you're running back with them say wanted to take my skates. And it was the first thing. I did when I got this just to make sure I had escape. So if you don't have your notes, they get all about the facilities. Yeah. Well, there's a really nice hotel restaurant ever looks at and there's another restaurant a bit closer to the lake. Food and everything I mean, take cash review because there this is sort of stand that sells small things to eat and drink some sun. The. Principal in the restaurants. You can them. So they have everything you need. Then. Just to give a again, a small summer you co up with the cable car. Correct. You pay something like, I think it was about fourteen francs for return. If you have the half card, so twenty eight or something probably without half talk..

"skating" Discussed on Q: The Podcast from CBC Radio
"Hi this is benjamin obermann and this is my gateway to figure skating in film i i believe that a good figure skating film it embodies the heroes journey there is the person who feels a calling there's always a lot of themes in the characters around ice skating on there's always like the domineering mom who's on the side there's the kind of coldhearted an aggressive coach there's the rivalry amongst the students they're all based obviously on if he if you go to a dance hall or you go to a gymnastics duty or you go to the ice rink you're going to see all these characters there are those moms that are standing behind the coach i i think that people like watching figure skating films because there are extreme and i say extreme not in terms of extreme sports but because everything's heighten the costumes are glitz and glamour the characters are outlandish uh the sport is very very demanding and i think that when you get into seeing the training and you can exemplify that it brings people into it a little bit more than when you watch the sport on tv as a competition everybody's pretty highly trained in so you don't really grasp how difficult these things are and i think movies bring that about ladies a in a moment we will witness something never seen before in the history of athletic competition we remember her as a promising olympic contender who suffered a tragic setback last season do not good enough for a triple bogey crowd these two world class judges it's just a short acrobatics you'd have given up so it so iced castles which came out in protein 78 i was a younger boy but i do remember seeing it any was it was the darling error of you know after i believe is dorothy hamill had won the olympics and so this girl who's at the top of games she's the champion she has a bad fall and goes blind and through the love and support of her boyfriend she learned how to iceskate again as a blind person and goes back to regain her title it took a lot of strength.
