"He told her how he first met Barry Gordy. My number one singing idol was Jackie Wilson, which was how I actually met Barry Gordy because the group that turned out to be the miracles and I went for an audition for Jackie Wilson's managers in Detroit and at that time Barry Gordy had written all of the hit songs that Jackie Wilson had out. And Barry happened to be at that audition and rather than us singing songs that were currently popular by other people, we sang about 5 songs that I had written and so Jackie Wilson's managers rejected us. They told us we were never make it because we had a guy singing lead high and there was a girl in our group and there was already the platters who were very, very, very popular at that time. And so they had a guy singing high and a girl in group and so we would never make it because of the platters. And Barry Gordy happened to be at that audition and he was impressed because he had never heard any of the songs that we sang. So he came outside afterwards. He was there to turn in some new songs to Jackie Wilson, and he asked where we got the songs, and I told him I had written them and so on and so forth. And he asked me if I had some more songs which was a mistake on his part because I had a hundred songs in a notebook that I had with me and I sang about 20 of them for bury that day and he just critiqued him for me and I told him that I had all of his music because I had all the Jackie Wilson's music and some of the other songs that he had written for Etta James and a couple groups and stuff like that. And we stuck a relationship in about a year or so after that, man, we started Motown. And so that was a fabulous time over my life. So when he critiqued your songs after you sang a bunch for him, what did he say? Well, you know, Terry, I could always rhyme from the time I was a little kid, I could always rhyme stuff, but my songs at that time didn't complete an idea. I would have a great rhymed up first verse, but it had nothing to do with the second verse, which was rhymed up really good. You know, he made me know that I would have three or four songs in one song. And he just, he just taught me basically how to construct a song and how to make a song one idea that carries from the beginning to the end and the beginning and the middle and the ending all tie in together to give a person one complete idea. And how to construct my songs. You and Barry Gordy cohort got a job. And then he wrote your first big hit, right? Which was shop around. No, he did not. No, he didn't. I read that. You wrote it. Why did I think he wrote it? I don't know why. I'm taking care of thrown away from you. No, no, no. What happened with Chaparral was the fact that we had a big hit on a guy named Barrett strong money, that's what I want. And Barry had, we just started Motown basically, you know, we had a few hits. But Barry wanted me to write an album for Barrett. So shop around was one of the songs that I wrote for that particular album. I was going to record it on Barrett strong. And I was very excited because a lot of times, songs just flow out. Shop around took me about 20 minutes at the most to write. Some songs take longer to write, but chaperone had flowed out in about 20 minutes ahead of it. So I went to Barry's office and I told him, I said, hey man, I have got a great song for Barrett for his next record. And he said, you have he said, let me hear it. So we go down into the studio at the piano and I play shop around, and I sing it for him. And he got very excited about it. So he said, move up a man because I want to change these chords right here and so on and so on, which is why his name would be on the particular song on chop around. And he didn't want to put his name on it, but I insisted that he did, because we worked on it for an hour or two there. And after we got to working on it, he said, I want you to sing this song. So I said, no, man, I wrote this song for Barrett so we went through that for 5 minutes. No using it. No, I wrote for bear. No, you sing it. So finally, he said, well, you're just going to the studio and record this song. And on you and the miracles and we'll see what happens. So I did. And when I sang it, when I had written it, it was like a little slower and bluesy. And so I recorded it on the miracles and me and it came out. And it had been off about two weeks, and it was doing fair. And Barry called me a one morning at about 3 o'clock in the morning and said, hey man, I want you to get the group and come to the studio because I've already called all the musicians, and I want you to come to the studio. I'm going to rerecord Chaparral. I'm going to change the beat, and it's going to number one. So to make a long story short, I did. I called a group, and we went to the studio and everybody showed up with the exception of the piano player. So Barry is playing the piano on shop around. And we recorded it in his version of it, which was the one that went to number one. So when he called you in the middle of the night and said, we're going to do it over. It's too slow. Were you insulted? No, I was not insulted. I just said, man, are you crazy? You know, I might be, but this is what we're going to do. The first thing he said to me was a small I said, yeah, man. He said, this is Barry. I said, no, man. I recognize your voice. He said, what are you doing? I said, I'm sleep. He said, well, I can't sleep. I said, I can see that. He said, he said, shop around and drive me crazy, man. And he said, I can't get it out of my mind. And I want to change the beat so you get the group and come to the studio. And I've called the musicians, and we're going to rerecord it. So that's what we did. Well, I guess we'd better hear it. This is shop around Smokey Robinson and the miracles recorded in 1960. All right.

"That's capsicum. What? Wait, it's work? What are you saying? It's capsicum. It's what we call fruit peppers, like a bell pepper. We call it the capsicum. Called cilantro coriander. Smoky didn't hit 200, but even topping out at one 94, smokey was an instant legend in the tuning community. He was also correct. That video of the run became a highly successful PR tool for top secret. Proving that smokey's cars were the real deal and helping to make top secret one of the most famous names in aftermarket tuning. He even sold the Supra to literal royalty, a prince of Dubai, bought it soon after the run. In the years after the double ton run, a slew of tuned skylines supras in later three 50 Z's Porsche's and Nissan GTR's rolled out of smokey's workshop. But he built his next star attraction with an even more ambitious goal in mind. 400 km/h. That's 249 mph for those of you counting in American. He again decided to use a Supra as the foundation for his beautiful new baby, but this time he installed a massive 5 liter V12 from a Toyota century, which is perhaps the fanciest car on the planet. He also strapped two turbo boosters on it. Oh my gosh. Built a custom body kit in order to run the cooling system through the trunk. The result, 930 hertz pers of golden goodness. This car is wild looking. I wonder what's the MPG on that thing? What's the MPG on that thing? More than you can afford pal. It's true now. Aside from breaking the 400 mark, smokey's other objective was to impress girls. Aside from breaking the 400 kilometer mark, smokey's other objective was to break daijiro Anna's highway speed record of 346 km/h. The giro had previously broken smokey's record of 340 kilometers an hour. We talked about they die in the option magazine episode. He's the founder of option. He was not allowed in midnight club, right? Neither was smokey. Yeah. So in 2007, the V12 super won the custom car Grand Prix at the Tokyo auto salon. And after topping out at 358 km/h at the nardo ring in Italy, smokey took it onto his old stomping grounds, the aqua line and hit three 70. That's around 229 mph in English. Wow. If you ask me, getting a car to damn near 230 mph on the street is an incredible achievement and also behavior that I'm illegally not allowed to endorse. And it may not have hit 400 km/h, but it did achieve something equally impressive. They turned it into a hot wheels car. Oh man. So you can shove it up your butt. Wow. Like Bam Margera. Smokey's most recent build shows off his continued brand agnosticism. His latest golden masterpiece is a 650 horsepower 1994 skyline GTR that's been stroked to 2.8 liters with a complete chassis refresh by top secret, turbo by greti. Aftermarket parts scattered throughout, including H kiss internals and some nice classic to my cams codenamed 6 50 R for its many, many horsepowers. It won't awards at the 2019 Tokyo auto salon before an American collector bought it stateside. That guy was strad man. Yeah, straddling on it. To many, beyond his famous exploits, smokiest something of a mysterious figure. But top secret coat is still an active influence on Japanese racing culture. The company races in the Japanese super taikyu series, as well as D one GP professional drift station in Japan. The U.S. and UK. A custom S 15 silvia driven by ryuji miki won the D one GP points title in 2004 in an epic battle with team oranges, nobu shigi kumakubo. Despite his man of mystery reputation, smokey himself has now gone non VHS viral. He is 300,000 followers on Instagram, which is less than me. And various videos of his double ton run have millions of YouTube boots. Again, less than us. He even has his own blog, which is more than we can say. We don't have one. Speak for yourself. You got a blog? I got a dog blog, right? It's called the log. These days, smokey runs top secret out of a massive workshop with a separate showroom and distinct upgrade over after hours experimentation at a rural Toyota outpost. And his choice of a gold color scheme ended up being prophetic. Smokey's cars have won first place titles and drifting, drag racing, time attack, car shows, top speed runs, and even the annual Pikes Peak hill climb. Wow, I didn't know that. Yeah, he also won the Olympics. For diving. Wow. Yeah. What form? Wow. Dang, I'm watching video of that right now. No splash. No split zero splash. No flips, but no splash.

"According to smokey, not just any top secret project vehicles painted gold. Instead, the project must represent the epitome of the top secret tuning philosophy. Only our best and most accomplished projects receive the goat paint. The Tokyo racing scene evolved out of home tuners in the 70s and 80s who had generally compete at a track called the tabi high speed oval. It was initially built by Japan automobile research institute for testing, but became so frequently used by tuners that option magazine began hosting speed trials there. Zero to 300 kilometer times were the primary currency among Japanese home tuners until 1997 when a new expressway opened under the Tokyo bay a 9.6 kilometer underwater tunnel called the aqua line. It was long and straight, seemingly crafted by some kind of divine being to be the perfect for late night street racing. The alkaline quickly became smoking the other street racers, new favorite test track. At one point, smokey got his R 33 skyline GTR up to 204 mph in the tunnel. Which is often credited as the spark for an idea that put smokey on the international map. And possibly some most wanted lasts. Imagine how crazy it would sound going to be 4 mph in that tunnel. That would be fun. Jeez, man. And R 33 too. Every once in a while, we get to drive some pretty fast cars. And the cool thing about cars today, no matter the make, they're just so stable. And so solid at any speed, you rarely feel like you're out of control, but we're talking about cars that are built in the early 80s in this story. Even back then, just the guts it took to drive these cars that fast. R 33 is 90s. Oh yeah, my bad. I misread that as R 31. Yes, still a car from the 90s. To go that fast. And then 90s Nissan is just insane. In 1998, max power magazine invited smokey to England for one of its car shows. Smokey decided to bring along a video crew from option magazine. Since he figured, he might get bored during the car show and wanted something else to focus on. During discussions with the crew, an idea came up. What if he tried to hit 200 mph on British public roads? He had already done it in Japan. And England definitely didn't have the same kind of car scene. Surely, it would be an unofficial record. Smokey was in. He called it the double ton run. He chose a 1998 Supra for the base of his car. But tossed the original three liter straight 6 engine and replaced it with the engine from a skyline GTR. So is that an RB 26 in that one? That would be. He liked the aerodynamics of the Supra, which were great for top speed, but needed more power. He thought the Supra was also a better looking car. Helpful, since he wanted video of the run to get maximum attention, as a sales tool for top secret. And of course, he trusted the Supra for safety. He later told option magazine, quote, the reason why I emphasize my tuning in modifications on the Supra is simple. This platform has a lot of meaning to me. It's the only platform that I trust with my life at high velocities. They chose a rural stretch of the a one, a highway that runs nearly the entire length of England. From London to Edinburgh, Scotland. And around 4 a.m. on November 4th, 1998, in the freezing rain, smokey set to work. He made several attempts to clear 200, but faced unforeseen complications every time, like rain. It's a big old wet, a big old whack. That's what we're calling out here. You can show people wet is coming. The wet roads made things difficult. The engine was also running two lean to hit peak speed on one run. The hood came up at 190 on another. Jesus. Then, all too soon, smokey's run came to an end when he saw police lights in the rearview mirror. He had to know this might happen, but smokey still found himself in a pretty bad spot. He was in a different country. He didn't know the language, he broke the speed limit by about a 1 million mph, and he didn't even hit his goal. But he didn't feel much guilt about it. He later told Top Gear, quote I did what I did and what happened happened. I know it's morally wrong, but it is what it is. Also, she might go up at one 90, that was pretty sick. The cops threw him in jail, where he had to wait until a lawyer and translator could appear with him in court. Smokey worried about spending years in a British prison. And top secret going under without him. But the punishment ended up being pretty light. He admitted to doing one 20 mph was fined a 155 pounds and was banned from the UK for ten years. You get out and you don't come back. You must have been going what a 120. And then he's just like winking. You get on that train and you take to the airport. And you go back to wherever you from. And you don't come back for ten years. Your banished, banished. When he got back to his hotel, he found paparazzi waiting for him. While smokey was in jail, his late night escapade made headlines in British papers. The daily mail reported that it was the most successive speeding violation in the history of England. Footage that smokey captured with cameras duct taped to his car, even went Proto viral as enthusiasts started sharing VHS tapes of some lunatic and a modified Supra going full beast mode on English roads. He's going beast mode in the big wet or like a werewolf in London. This guy is all 6 season 7s only. He's got the gravy. This is the kind of episode where people are like, you guys just did this so you could do a British accent the whole time. Big top gravy thick chunky got Yorkshire pouring. Oh, that's a real poor Yorkshire employee. Oh, the cause of real pudding gravy..

"But turned a blind eye as they didn't want to lose me. So it was our secret. Our top secret. A year later, he founded his own company with that very name. In the early days of top secrets, spoke he was flat broke so he couldn't work on his own cars. He focused on finding contract work with other street racers. His first client drove a Toyota soarer, which is a luxury GT coupe that shares a lot of parts with the Supra. Smoky managed to tune it up to a 12 second quarter mile, which was pretty dang good for the late 80s. That's not bad. Actually not bad for the late 80s. Oh no, no, no, no. Smoking top secret quickly built a name in the Japanese underground racing community. And as the swing in 90s hit, that community found itself at the forefront of a global auto tuning boom. JDM cars with massive performance potential were being released in Japan and shipped all over the world. You know the names, Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, daihatsu sharad, and top secret was supplying underground racers in Japan, America, and elsewhere with the means to make their cars as fast as humanly possible. Surprisingly, though, smokey's philosophy on car tuning wasn't focused on speed at all. Sure, he made a fast cars, but he thought that high speeds were best achieved through safety. Have you stuck cars as unstable and unsafe to drive at high speeds? So it was his job as a tuner to make them safer. As he told an interviewer at speed hunters, the faster you go, the safer the car has to be. Makes sense. Yeah. Top secret cars generally only come in two colors white and gold, but the most famous ones are gold. He chose gold because as a kid, he always enjoyed watching the Olympics. And gold is a representation of being the best in the world. His favorite movie is goldmember too. His favorite party Willy Wonka is when Charlie opens the chocolate bar. Because he likes chocolate too. We'll get back to more past gas, but right now, a word from our sponsors. This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy. Relationships take work.

"What, that's unfair. That's not even at school. That's whack dude. Come on, man. How are you going to be mad at a kid in a rural area for driving himself to school? He's going to school. Yeah, exactly. He's going out of his way to get transportation to school. I say we go over there and tell him what for. So then he went over to Toyota and asked for a job and they said, yep, you can just start today. You want to be the president? Well Joe, you joke, but this turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The head of Toyota who helped smokey work on the car felt responsible for smokey's plight. So at 16 smokey was offered a job. I did not read that I swear to God. As he got a job as a mechanic at Toyota. This is impossible to confirm, but he may have been the youngest Toyota engineer ever. Although mechanic is different than engineers. Dude, we did Tucker last week and now with smoking. You know how long I suffered not doing anything without any opportunity, and then these guys are just quitting school and getting jobs. Yeah. No one calls me smokey. Smokey spent four years at Toyota, and it was almost too good at the job. He eventually got fired for taking the skills he was learning at the factory and applying them to a second hand Toyota celica during work hours. Damn, I mean, if he's got extra time, why not? If you got time to lean, you got time to modify your celica. Smokey had been tuning up his car in secret, then taking it out at night to trash the mountains of Hokkaido. When Toyota found out they gave him the boot. Smokey was 20 years old and decided he'd gone as far as he could in rural Hokkaido. So he relocated 800 miles south to Tokyo with dreams of becoming a race car driver. Patiently crouched at the starting line engines pumping and thumping the time. I heard that. In the car this morning. You're at your house. Where did you drive? I got McDonald's. I felt bad about myself, 'cause I was like, you've been in a car today already? I've been this week. I woke up at 7 30 every morning, I know. I know. I'm a hero. But I regret to inform you guys that going to bed early and getting up early actually does wonders for my mood. Mental health? Yeah. It's been pretty good. You're on Chicago time still. That might have been part of it. I woke up early today, and I realized, man, I've been up for a long time. It's pretty cool though, when it hits like 11 and you're like, I've been up for four hours and I did like two or three things already. That's like a good feeling. I like getting to the office earlier now. Yeah. But in Tokyo, smokey was flat broke and didn't know anybody. He practically begged for a job any job at the tuning company, trust, GReddy. And as often happens when you ask for any job, he got the most thankless one. Starting in the packaging department, boxing app trusts aftermarket exhausts and turbos. It was exhausting work, but well worth it. Exhausting, get it? Yeah, because I said exhaust. Yeah. Nice. That's called the radio magic people. The real magic happened once smokey was off the clock. It was then that the young fellow would head down to the racing department and offer a hand to whoever needed one. The trust mechanics were more than happy to get an extra set of mitts at no cost to them. At some point between learning about cars from his dad and learning about cars from the experts at trust, smokey started smoking. A lot. Hence, the nickname. It's still one of his trademarks today. Good luck finding an article about smoking to the gada that doesn't mention the cigarette constantly hanging on his lips. And now that I've mentioned it, we've joined the legions of media that mentions it. We could have broken the mold, guys. What did his dad smoke too? Because they mentioned smokey senior. I don't think he was smoking. That was just a way to refer to his dad. Is that radio magic to or just straight up a lie? It's an illusion. During his years at trust, smokey also met two important mentors. Masa mitsu, hayakawa, who is the founder of trust grete, and isami amiya, who founded Ari Amaya and was a pioneer in tuning a rotary powered Mazda. Both were active in racing and top speed competitions, which made them role models for smokey, particularly when it came to work ethic. Do you think it'd be possible to make an engine that's a rotary that inside the Dorito, it has three pistons that are also making power? Maybe. That sounds very complex. That's just how my mind works. I can visualize that easily. Smokey worked his way up at trust, but the work wasn't satisfying. Quote, I was only allowed to make mufflers work on turbos, but I wanted more. I wanted to tune. For top speed. It was only natural that as he watched the experts at trust, he would want to create custom design parts for his own cars. He did. After hours, when nobody was in the shop, he began working on his projects until his bosses found out, just like at Toyota. This time, smoke he wanted to quit, so he wouldn't get in trouble. But it turns out, Tokyo is not Hokkaido, and smokey was no longer a know nothing teenager. And other managers that trust valued his work too much to let him leave. So they made a deal. Or in smokey's words, quote, the bus is found out and weren't happy..

Yeah, it's been a busy week here at donut. I got a new email. I got a signing to. Yeah. We're dealing with a new email. That's rough. Yeah, this new email is messing everyone up at the office. It is, man. Everyone's like, where do I change my background? Yeah, can I download my regular show background with this new email? Can I still do that? It's just been a long week. I think for everybody, we're going to try to turn that around. Today, yeah, because we're going to turn up, guys. Let's turn up. Let's turn. Let's turn it up. Let's make a pact right here. We're going to bring the smoke. Let's bring the smoke. Let's turn up. Call me Tom Brady, 'cause I'm saying, let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Those hurts commercials. How does he make it so lame? I get him literally every ad break on YouTube on my TV. I get the Tom Brady. Let's go. Yeah. So now I'm just saying, let's go. I don't know if this is me or if it's the kind of content that I watch, but I've been getting opioid addiction at a lot on YouTube. Well, you have been watching a lot of fish tank videos, right? Yeah. So maybe there's a correlation there. Algorithm sees you like, man, this guy's just watching a lot of chill videos. He must be on heroin. He wants me to just hanging out right now, yeah. So maybe he's watching. Yeah, he's watching videos of just like fish hanging out. Welcome to fast guys. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes, joined us always by my other house. You guys aren't, we're all hooked. Yeah, we're all hosting the world. I think that's fair to say. I think that's this is a co op. That's safe. It is a co op. Those voices you just heard, one of them was James pumphrey. Jet fuel does not melt steel beams and Joe Weber. Fish it out and cook it up. Wow, I love that one. That's good. It works for everything too, 'cause you can fish a steak out of your fridge. And cook it up, or you can fish chicken out of a marinating bowl and still cook it in fish some sweet, sweet horse out of a spoon and cook it up unpopular opinion I want to try horse meat. I was talking about heroin. Oh. I didn't know that horse was slang for that. Yeah, neither did I. It's an old one. You've been watching the wire, huh? Yeah. Well, I read basketball diaries every night when I go to bed. This week we're talking about the legendary smokey nagata, a figure that has popped up in many donut media show over the years, but we've never really dedicated a whole show to his legend. Legend, he is a legendary guy, there's not a lot of information out there on him, which makes him even cooler in my opinion. He's one of these like old JDM dudes. You may have seen the golden supras. He ran top secret the classic video of him getting arrested on the intro, you know? On the M1. They built the V12 Supra, which is pretty sick. That's right. It is kind of cool to be a cult figure from the 90s because you do get some media coverage here and there. You show up in media that's still accessible today, but because social media around, you don't have an Instagram. There's no weird tweet from 1991 that is trying to cover up. Exactly, exactly. So, I'm very excited to get into this story. This has a pretty fascinating fella and built some really cool cars. Without further ado, let's get into smoking nagata. These days, smoking nagata is part man part legend. An old school street racer and legendary tuner, the founder of aftermarkets park manufacturer top secret, straight up Yoda among JDM heads. Thanks to car magazines like JDM option and max power. In the 90s, he became practically synonymous with underground racing in Japan. But mastering burnouts on the Tokyo bay aqua line was actually a long way from home for old smokey. Kazuhiko nagata was born in 1964 in rural Hokkaido, the largest and northernmost prefecture of Japan. His hometown was full of idyllic farmland and rolling hills. But that didn't do much for young smokey. He later described his childhood at home as a place with, quote, not much going on. I can relate. Yeah, me too. But importantly, his dad was a car nut who taught smokey the basics of an engine. He didn't necessarily have the traditional personality of a speed demon. He was actually a soft spoken fidgety introvert. But he got familiar with driving by using the family truck to help out around their farm. Quote, I drove it every day and started to fall in love with the actual act of driving. The act of driving. He quickly found he had the intense detail oriented mind necessary to spend hours and hours tuning a vehicle for max performance. As a teenager, he bought his first vehicle, a motorcycle. He quickly decided two wheels weren't for him. And added a go kart to his collection. But since he couldn't drive the go kart on the farmland surrounding his family home, neighbors quickly got used to seeing him taking it to the streets. We took it to the streets. That was great. Is that Michael McDonald? That makes sense. Well, mystery soft. At 15, smokey bought his first real car. A Mitsubishi galant GTO with over fenders. But unfortunately, despite his dad's mechanical know how, smokey and smokey senior couldn't get the car running. So, smokey junior approached the head of a local Toyota branch to have him out. With Toyota's help, he managed to turn it into a respectable street racer. What? Imagine just going to Toyota factory and being like, can you guys help me out? I'm 16. Can you guys make my car go? Can you help my Mitsubishi? You guys are Toyota, right? Can you help me with my Mitsubishi? Smoky then started driving the Mitsubishi to school, despite the fact that he didn't have a driver's license because the driving age in Japan is 16. When the conservative officials who ran in school found out, they expelled him..

"Speaking of Science and climate change the wild fires out west they continue what I call it everytime, Lauren Hobart walks and I say, look at that smoke show from out west, the Wildfire from out west. It's she is dead, she has special needs. Do you believe in God, believe in climate change has anything to do with these wildfires? That continue to happen in California and Out West. I keep telling Bill Burr time like it's getting kind of hot in college out west you might want to wear some shorter. Skirts little Lauren but no there's no climate change. What I mean. This is what happens when they don't rake the leaves, when Democrats don't read Leaves and clean the branches. These dry forests. You know, Smokey the Bear once told us only we can prevent forest fires and we're not preventing them were telling Smokey the Bear go. Fuck himself. Probably because they think smoking to birth a strong Republican, cuz he's law enforcement. So they're telling Smokey the Bear that he can go fuck himself. I'm towing Lauren the bow. Barrett that she can go fuck me off and it's all about law enforcement and great clean air and great affairs with Lauren bobert and I don't know why we can't just have all that. But you know, the language the last show they care, they don't want you hunting bears, but when a bear tells you how to prevent forest fires, they go, you know, we want to defund the Smoky bears. So you don't believe science has anything to do with these fires whatsoever. It's all the Democrats fault. I mean, Nature's, nature nature, mother nature, by the way, probably a radical left woman, you know, sort of rally on R. Out in Portland, but off. Yeah, the main thing we need to focus on is learned obit. Understand. I wish we could have learned over and on the on the podcast and I'd love to see. I'd like to have directions.

Leonardo da vinci is well known for using a scientific i to develop his artistic style. He observed that objects three dimensional and used his observations of late and dr to paint vivid and realistic. Portrait's and landscapes is a concept called kado scored. Oh it seems obvious to us now. But it was revolutionary in leonardo's time he also observed how objects details and colors change when they fade away into the distance education ni called sfuzzi motto and use this tool to his advantage to create a sense of great death. Sue motto is also known as leonardo smoke for how he made mountains and other distant landscape features blue and smokey while this is not as conclusive or rather to the culinary arts as other aspects of his style. It's still worth noting. Other notable features of his art are the cross hatching that slants to the left caused by his left handedness. This is also the reason that he wrote backwards to reduce smudging. He used many left handed and tools and adapted tools in his work. So presentation is a huge part of what makes food so delicious by using leonardo davinci's art style. You can make unique and pleasing arrangements of food that our instagram worthy. Pay attention to the way late will change the way your food looks. For example. pancakes look great.

Wildfires Jeopardize Access To Drinking Water

"In many Western states, drinking water supply start high up in the mountains as reverse. This summer's record-breaking wildfires have reduced some headwaters, forest burn trees and heaps of Ash as Luke Runyan from member. Station K. U.. NC reports that often creates expensive headaches for water treatment plants long after the smoke clears. Few places in the West know how wildfires affect water supplies like Fort Collins Colorado the state's largest wildfire ever recorded is burning just outside the city now but their problems really started eight years ago before then it's main water source the poodle river was nearly pristine. We had been privileged and in some ways probably took for granted that these watersheds were providing. A consistently clean clear water all the time. That's Fort Collins Water Quality Manager. Jill or pays we're along the river just outside the city downstream from where in twenty twelve, the high park fire burned more than eighty, seven, thousand acres for the first year after the fire every time it rained the river turned black from mudslides we ended up with a lot. Of Sediment in our pipelines that was difficult to remove to keep those muddy flows from causing problems, the city installed an early warning system, a series of monitoring stations along the river. If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us. To have a heads up for win those changes in water quality were occurring the effects of the burn scar on water quality only lasted a few years but this early warning system is far from obsolete because this year is cameron peak fire has burned another broad sweep of the river's watershed, which means for Collins, again joins the list of western cities learning. To live with wildfires that burn bigger and hotter than they've ever seen before this is a new reality and we're learning as we go. Joe. Harwood is with the water and electrical utility for two hundred, thousand people in and around Eugene Oregon this summer the holiday farm fire burned along the banks of their sole water source, the McKenzie River soon after their. Customers noticed the water coming out of their faucets had a smokey taste people quite frankly to use a scientific term freaked out because it's not something he'd dealt with me for Harwood's says, they eventually figured out the chemistry at their treatment plan to remove the taste and when this winter's rainstorms arrive, utility workers will be monitoring for other harmful things that can.

Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails with Shannon mustipher

"Shannon. Welcome to milk street. It's really great to be here. Thanks for having me. I love your book Tiki Modern Tropical cocktails. So. What does the Word Tiki me? Where does it come from and what is Tiki cocktail? Sure. So tiki refers from a cultural standpoint to religious practices and iconography from Polynesia, now, where cocktails are concerned Tiki termed applied retroactively. So in the beginning of the age of tropical cocktail, they were called exotic cocktails and we're talking about mid nineteen. Thirties California at don the beachcomber in Bay area then later trader Vic's in subsequent restaurants it was in the mid eighties early nineties when. Polynesian tropical culture enthusiasts mostly in California. Began research those bars and to look into brain those cocktails back that you started to see the word tiki emerged. Let's talk about some of the classics Don Beachcombers, Zombie. What's Zombie As army is a showstopper drink. Okay. So This thing has three different rooms in it. It has Grenadine, which is a pomegranate base, Schuss it Kinda crosses the line in terms sophistication because there's absent attitude shrink, which is a not to New Orleans Ed's more our baseness and you know Elvis's drink beyond the simple run punch that is based on issues like a pumped up. Kinda sexy around punch. and. You know there's some savvy marketing airs not just a cocktail that made it. Popular Abe was the limit two per customer. So people like trying to get it third on trying to order one their friend so I'm you know we're talking about the ingredients of design be, but I think what's the biggest ingredient? There's it's is cultural impact. The my tie. I didn't actually know what was in a my tie until I picked up your book. So what is a my time? Sure so The final change somewhat. But kind of simplify it. Is in most bars, a blend of Jamaican, and Martin Shem rooms or jaw, which is an almond based liqueur slash. Surp- Archer sow in line. Is Simpler to a lot of places make it out to be. What are some of the techniques like washing rumor bourbon? What does that mean? Sure. So washing means is essentially kind of. Another way of saying infusing. Dime Lee Campbell Cameras Bro an idea of taking rendered fat from Bacon. Adding it to whiskey. Giving time to sit at room temperature, and then later froze it so that the solids rose to the top and he skim it off and the result is you get this really Nice creamy texture and depending on what kind of fat we're talking about it can be smokey could be nutty. So as an example, I worked at restaurant called FINCH. Why did the? Same thing would smoked duck breasts fat and rum in the shrink was so crazy I loved to pieces. It was so easy like cheat I done it with coconut oil and rum's Meskel. It does all kinds of wonders no matter what spirit using but it's just a nice way to add a Roma and body and viscosity and just kind of smooth on the out. You must how many okay. In your bar, how many different bottles that you have I stopped counting at one hundred I thought it's kind of comical was look I would look at it daily. I gaze upon it would find this is just a lot going on here but yeah, there's a good amount of figure it's probably two hundred. ME. So here's a question. You know the Martini I think is GonNa get you drunk as fast as possible. That's my take on. The friendship, Para. Tif is to sort of transition you from work to pleasure at the end of the day. What's the role of the TIKI cocktail? In other words? What is it that it's really really about besides the flavors. First, and foremost fun you know and. Mystery adventure discovery I've had some of the best nights of my life in Tiki bars because the mood is a reverent. I. Just love that that freedom the be freed you get. In a tiki cocktail, a tiki environment. So. What about teachings often have strange interesting containers more much more so than regular cocktails What role does the container plan? All of this it's vital because the fee starts with the is so Tiki takes it mike way over the top like I've seen presentations where you know to try is in vessel is set down in a treasure chest or comes in from barrel. You know comes and coconuts and hollowed out pineapples. You know there's flaming garnishes I once judge the competition. Where the team that from a bar called Paradise Lounge in Bushwick? That is sadly no longer with us. They. Brought it full force. It was a fish tank. With live fish. So the fish were isolated from the cocktail I. There is fishing air which is. Crazy.

Helicopter Rescue from California Fires

"Talk about the creek fire. How was it that you? I found out about that fire. You know it's kind of ironic because it was actually social media that attracted me to it I to live in that area and was aware of the creek fire. And it was actually scrolling through social media. and. Posts that said Hey role these hikers AMA- pools. Campers pools, and I immediately picked up the phone in a caller joint operation center, and they had just officially gotten that same word and we're in the process of activating a Chinook. Doctrine to assist with families that were stranded at pools. I immediately called KIPP guiding who is one of the other pilots that perform the rescue. My name is five guiding I am a Black Hawk pilot with California. National Guard we fly age sixty Mike's and it is we're in Fresno. and. That's where I live. So tell us about the capabilities of the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter. Fantastic, versatile capable machine, and happy to fly. It's got. Lots of things that I hadn't even mastered yet. We came from the older. Lima. Aircraft and just recently upgraded the Mike Model and just learning new things about it pretty much. Every time you fly somebody's got a new way to do something because of course, most things there's there's five ways you can do it and you know the one that you do, but but the guys that use other ways to get to the same result in it's Kinda nice to know those as well. kind of a technology to have on board that helped make the flight possible for example, to you using radar alternators or hover holds or what what kinds of things are you doing? Yeah. We both of those. So we had radar timid. Hover hold we have the terrain integrated into the screen. So we see all the train that is at above my altitude. We have you know airspeed hold out to holds fully coupled flight director to help get the war cloth you if you need to concentrate on something else and I'm guessing you had night vision goggles that tell us about how well they work. We did. So we initially went out there we were under day conditions in it was extremely difficult to get around the fire in certainly, it was impossible for us to penetrate the smoke wall to get to the mammoth lakes. Reservoir. But then as it as we're out there waiting for some tankers to drop their loads, it got dark enough that we did try to gobbles in once once this goggle able, we were to see through the smoke give us another half mile ability to be able to go some valleys and some places that we were not able to do earlier in the day when we tried and had to turn back that's kind of interesting. So what you're saying is that you given the same smoke conditions, you're actually to fly better in them at night with goggles on the daytime without them. Absolutely because The smoke, you just couldn't see, but with the goggles illuminating the fire and the burning embers that gave you a little bit more depth than it. Also, you could see where the high terrain was because it was burning on both sides. So you could see the elevation was you could see where the valley was we could stay in the center of the valley and like another half mile visibility to continue. Are there any kind of engine performance considerations when you're flying in heavy smoke? Sure how you can have compressor stalls in the heated airs less performance than the Cooler? Denser air. So that's part of it not the rotors less lift when when the air is hot and thinner. So that's. Something we always thinking about and we always have performance planning that we do before we leave and then on board the aircraft performance planning. If you get some more need, you thought it was GONNA be. At this altitude of temperature, you can easily get into the onboard computer and put in the correct numbers. The experiencing gets more definite ch situational performance that's happening right here. Right now, this what you can expect the current conditions in it tells you. In meanwhile, all reas on day three of his hike in the back country when he and his friends noticed that something was wrong. As we are. One of the passes over into readies whole. We look. Looked back toward the West and we saw a huge black column of smoke and topped off with a look like senator. Cloud. And boy we studied that for a while and realized that that's a problem that looks like it's from the general area where we grow in. And we carry a GPS just in case we we never use it really, but we have just in case ran a forested area where we can't see any natural features. We WanNA make sure we're on the same route. And we pulled out the GPS and and pinpointed where it was coming from it and sure enough it was coming from. Shaver Lake. Town. We drove through on highway one, sixty eight. So. We tried not to let that get as down too much. But we knew it was fire was probably about fifteen twenty miles from where we were as the crow flies. And then that night as the sun was setting to the West, it was completely obscured in orange by the smoke and we knew that this was going to ask somehow impact our trip. By the time we got down to Heather Lake smoke started to come in the winds shifted and you know it's really just a matter of shifting winds. And the winds shifted and in came into our little bowls a lake you set in a little granite, bowl. And those things tend to truly trap smoke in Chernoff. By the afternoon we were smoked out we could we could hardly across the lake. And started to fall. We had our a Powell a discussion realize. Okay. We need to get out of here tomorrow. Will Get up five in the morning in an Alpine start head on down the mountain and get back to our cars as soon as possible and so that was. Very. Somber. Champ that night. And you could smell smoke. It was very strong and everything was covered with ash and so that night was pretty bad and woke up first thing in the morning it was the same smokey it was dark. Broke camps quickly as possible has breakfast and then headed on down mount. And of course, Johanna was back home wondering about all re what did you do after he left a Kinda, keep track of things. Well, there's a cal fire map that updates. Map the fire status in California. And because we have friends and family who have been evacuated. In the NAPA area and up in Yukio We're very familiar with this map. We we look at it. We see where we're fires growing. And there were a couple of fires prior to his departure. They weren't near where he was going. So there was no concern about that. I didn't even look at the map actually for awhile and then I looked at it. I think it was Saturday morning. and Bam. There was at big fire of Shaver Lake which was not where he was backpacking. I knew he was far enough away for it not to be like an immediate danger to him. But I could see that it was covering the road. He had to go through that very narrow road that we discussed. That, he had to go through in order to access the point where he started backpacking. And I can see that there was no way out and I could see that the fire was growing. To word his location. So that was a little bit concerning. At the same time, helicopter pilot KIP got was preparing for what was to become the first of three nights of helicopter rescues

City slickers to. All right So let's just get into it. Mickey Thompson was born Marian Lee. Thompson Junior on December seventh nineteen twenty eight in San Fernando California. He went by Mickey and not marrying because in his own words quote a girl's name would mean even more fighting. I do like the name Marian it's pretty cool. Yeah. Like that, he said even more five eighty. We'll see. Yeah, he. Likes to get into it the San Fernando Valley home to Ventura. Boulevard and Mulholland. Drive was a fitting birthplace for a kid who would become defined by hot rods and dragsters. The valley is one of the original cradles of Car Culture I. I will say it still is today it's very like I went to see us you northridge up there in the valley and it is a muscle car town everyone drives either a charger challenger Camaro or Mustang it's pretty cool. I haven't met many people from the Valley with a valley accent most liked. Girls and Valley boys that I've talked to are from like Hollywood and Venice specifically. Venice. But never really never never from the valley there's I. Mean there's a lot of people. See us you northridge is a commuter school. There's a lot of people from that area that go there and I never really heard that typical valley you know yeah, I think it's kind of a pass a kind of thing. Now it was big at a time I. Don't think it's as big anymore you gotta meet some people from Venice. It's very much alive while not Nevada is on saying I think that the the new thing is. Not New but like the the big vocal fad was the vocal fry God. Yeah. Dashing vocal. John. We Sold our show got. Because we have less views per episode than Donut does perfect.

California's on fire right now guys so much so that I got gotta check engine light yesterday because I was putting on the new intake, my car, and then like I stopped because I needed another tool and then I put my older back together. But I didn't tighten the thing for the math enough and I just sucked in a bunch of ashish and it like Oh. No. Covered my maths I have a math cleaner if you need it. I had a check engine light a few days ago. Was not fire related. It just turns out that when my coil packs was bad and I had to change it out and not fixed it. So I'm pretty happy.

Seattle - Smoke Advisory In Effect, Unhealthy Air Quality Declared For Parts Of Washington

"Effect through the weekend. Here in Washington. We have the worst air in the world right now. Joining Portland in San Francisco. For the dubious honor comes Mark Christopher. Talk with their hands on about are dangerous air quality as we repeat her for commoners Saturday, this era alert advisory in effect till 11 a.m. Monday simply stay indoors. Don't plan to go anywhere. In fact. Many of your hangouts for the weekend already closed down. If not, they're adding to the list of we speak. Just encourage everybody to stay home boat ramps We see. Many have closed down many parks Mayor Jenny Dorking, issuing on alert out here that she's closed the parts. Around the city. Many of the beaches have been closed. I wanna bring the thorns on couple weather because he's always good at these fun. I'm not gonna say fun facts but just fax about the smoke. How bad is it there in? We've had this before. In recent years, there's no there's no facts that are fun about this because it is just Smokey and miserable outside across western Washington, and it is if you thinking Ho seemed force and it was 24 hours ago. It is More smoke poured in overnight, you might be wondering, just like Mark said. You know, we've had smoked before. Why have we not had situations as Dyer's is quite that often? Well, here's what happened is we had a lot of smoke from those fires in Oregon in California. The smoke your breathing Today is not necessarily Washington smoke. It smells like organ smoke. You're right. Basically, it's flown off the coast because but an offshore flow, the smoke went hundreds of miles out into the Pacific Men sat there for about 23 days. Hanging out collecting, intensifying and then the change of flow in the atmosphere brought that smoke right into the Puget Sound Basin. And then we have sort of Ah, triple whammy. We have the flow that brought the smoke here. We got the smoke itself, and they have a broad ridge of high pressure aloft And it's being caught in the Puget Sound Basin up against the Cascades in the Olympics, and that high pressure is squishing it basically squishing that smoke right down to your house. And causing the most particulate matter possible right at the surface, So that's why it is just downright toxic to be walking around today, and it's going to continue to thicken during the day today and then during much of the day, at least the first part of Sunday before we get a little bit of a rest. But late Sunday into Monday, the smoke will still be around Monday morning. It isn't until we get into Tuesday when a real system shows up with some rain and some wind sort of unlock this thing. This smoke this locked in here, thanks to high pressure. Take the high pressure off, basically take the lid off the pot. And get the smoke out of here and get us some cleaner air. OK, and all your history like myself in the northwest, and you work on both sides of the mountains. You don't wanna smoke before here is this just like off the charts? This is off the charts. There has been maybe one other time in the last 15 to 20 years. It has been this bad in western Washington. When it comes to unhealthier made. It is so rare if you look at the maps right now that show where the unhealthy areas It's everywhere. It's all of Washington State. Right now, you could go out to the coast and go in the inland areas. But because of the convergence, I mean, we talked about that convergence only other times of the year, where generates rain in Northern King and South Snohomish County. Well, we have sort of a smoke convergence zone. Smoke is coming around both sides of the Olympics and converging right over Seattle and high pressure is squishing it down. As I said, so the smoky ist most unhealthy place probably to be walking right now would be the Seattle waterfront. Okay, let's compare again. Not a fun fact. But just something we've learned over the years. Compared to the smog that l A is always usually having. Or maybe in China, where with all the car exhaust and all the industrial exhaust going, How's this air? Compared, will we at this particular moment? Looking outside? And these step? The stats confirm. We have the worst air quality in the world right now. Here, here here in Seattle. You're looking at the worst. You can go anywhere in the world and you'll find better air. Then here right now, so it is terribly unhealthy. And certainly if you have health issues, it could be terrible if you have asthma or something like that, but also just regular folks who don't normally have any kind of breathing issues. Don't be jogging. Don't go and wash the car. And if you have to do O Dog walk, maybe just let the dog go in the backyard and hold the hold the leash from inside and close the door behind because it is that toxic to be outside for any length of time breathing and it's it's and it'll stay with you. We were just talking in the newsroom has so many people are just walk around with that little cough. Go on, and it feels like we all have it. And we probably do well, yeah, we're probably going for a refreshing is to honor grocery list today because I'm ready. Smelling it. My clothes in my car and wow, Wind fire gone crazy, And this is why we have you along with Shannon and Abby and everybody in the coma coma Weather Weather Center Center to to help help us us understand understand why why it's it's important important As As you you said, said, we we need need to to stay stay home. home.

Managing Wildfire Through Cultural Burning

"So Lauren. You were telling us about how in February. You were heading out with a group of tribes from Northern California conducting a cultural burn very cool. But I, tell me how cultural burns are different from say. Or prescribed burns something I know the Forest Service does yeah. The service and other fire agencies they set controlled fires to, and that's for the vegetation they WANNA, get rid of it so that there's not too much that builds up because overgrown vegetation can make fires more extreme. Cultural burning it does that too but the tribes also do it to encourage certain plants to grow. Like the first thing that team did that day was actually a harvest, Oh yeah. They headed out to some tall bushes sour berries, which is also known as three Samak and you know this was winter. So there were these long spindly branches that were totally bare of leaves. So my mom is basket lever. That's why I meant Ragu Taras I'm reggae tears. Mahu Newnan Rageh Tears He. He's clipping. The longest straightest branches are used in traditional basket weaving and then after being harvested, the plant is burned to encourage more growth like that. All our basket material needs to be tended to in some way. So they need to be burned and then next year we'll probably have sticks that are sick seventeen, tom one year. fired. Oh. So does the fire burn the plant completely? Yes completely to the ground, and it really actually happens pretty fast but the rootstock stays alive. So you know after the spring rains come the plant will re sprout got in the harvest can kind of happen again. Yeah and I know some plants in California they're kind of used to being burned regularly. Yeah. Yeah. I, mean I think a lot of. People forget this but they're adapted to regular fires I mean historically, those are both naturally caused fires by lightning, and then there were fire set by tribes and Ron says they burned like this for Millennia to encourage plant growth also to shape the landscape to attract certain game for a lot of reasons when I was a kid I learned from my mother. My mother got in trouble when she burned because the fire department you know didn't want her doing what we're doing today. As you probably know white settlers had a very different take on fire they came with their concepts of being afraid to fire. Then, you didn't understand fire in the sense of the tool that it could be. To create and what it did to help, generate and rejuvenate the land. And let's not forget. There's a bigger history here when when white settlers arrived in California in the eighteen hundreds there was an intentional and violent campaign to destroy their tribal culture I spoke to Beth rose Middleton manning about that She's Professor of Native American Studies at UC Davis, and she brought her students that day to be part of a ceremony. There was actually a a bounty on California. Indian people The governor had announced a war of extermination. So you have all that. and. It really fostered removal settler ownership of indigenous lands. So tribal burning basically stopped and fast forward a couple of decades to the early nineteen hundreds, and that's when the federal government began an era of fire suppression. Please be careful with fire. That's the whole smokey the bear era, right? Yeah. Make, sure your fire is dead. Remember only you can prevent forest fires. Yeah. It's just interesting that the legacy of this idea that fire is always something that's bad and that has to be put out continued from settler colonialism onwards. Yeah. Definitely I mean up until the nineteen seventies the forest service had this rule they called the ten am rule it was basically that all fires should be put out by tanning him the next day but all that suppression, you know it caused a lot of vegetation to build up in California, the force became denser and that set the stage for extreme destructive fires. So fire matters of realizing that has to change and they started embracing prescribe burns a now we're slowly being open to cultural burning too. So that brings us to today where western states are grappling with how to manage wildfire season, and you're going to talk about how cultural burns kind of fit into that right and so ron and other tribal leaders have been trying to restore cultural burning for a while and you know not just teaching the concepts of people but actually bringing out the land to practice it, and that's not easy to do when the land is. No longer legally there's as as Beth rose described to me I think it's really important that we don't think about traditional burning as what information can we learn from native people about how they care for the land and then exclude people and move. On, with non natives managing the land, but the native people are at the forefront and our leading. Okay. So this event is maybe a way to do that. Yeah which is why Ron invited these government officials to participate and kind of get their hands dirty during the ceremony You know like Jennifer Montgomery she directs California's Forest Management Task. Force. So it's her job to figure out how to deal with all these overgrown for us and she was there helping light this fire in a big grassy field using a drip porch that was super empowering. I mean I think every woman should get a chance to use a drip torch is that like a flame thrower or something? Not Not. Quite It's it's like a watering can lighter thing that basically spilled out fire instead of water. That's pretty cool. So yeah yeah I mean by the time she was done there was this kind of giant line of fire that that kind of spread out pretty quickly across this entire field but remember this was February winters. So it the fire burned itself out pretty quickly. and. Then all that dried brushes

How Gene Therapy Helped Conner Run

"Mattie. SAFAI NPR science correspondent. John Hamilton Hi John Hi Mary so John, where would you like to begin I? Think we should start with the scientist. Okay. Let's do it. Okay. So obviously many many scientists have worked to understand this disorder. But today we're gonNA focus on Jude Samal ski back in Nineteen eighty-four and I'll ski was still a graduate student at the University of Florida and he was part of this team that cloned a virus called A V. and those are group of viruses that can infect people but they don't cause diseases. Yeah. I remember I learning about this in Grad School John that discovery was a big deal because basically we can turn these viruses in tools and and that's because viruses on their own are pros at getting into ourselves and getting up close and personal with our DNA, which is exactly where you need to get to treat a lot of genetic disorders at. Their source exactly, and he was one of the scientists who figure that out. So as you these viruses have just revolutionized gene therapy right and after some Oh ski and his team Clone Davie, they wanted to try to use the virus to treat descend muscular dystrophy. That's the genetic disorder you were talking about earlier. Got It. So a lot of these therapies work by kind of targeting gene or genes that are the root of a disorder. So what's The deal with to Sheng muscular dystrophy John Kids who have Sharon. Lack a functional version of gene called D. M. D., and this gene makes a protein called destroyed often that helps muscles stay healthy. Got It. Okay. The idea is if the problem is that someone lack a working gene, you could just give them a working copy of that gene and what's the most wanted to do was packed some of the genetic code from a disrobing gene inside. Right and then once the virus got into the body, it would infect muscle cells, and then that faulty code is replaced with a functional version. Right? smokey says a Aviv, this harmless virus would work. Station service it's a molecular Fedex truck. Carries a genetic payload and it's delivering to its target right but it turns out bring a gene is a little bit harder. Then delivering a package and destroyed gene is especially challenging. One reason is it's is the a the virus are Fedex truck is incredibly tiny even among viruses. It's so small. You need an electron microscope just to see it, and then you have the destroyed gene, which is huge. It's the largest known human gene it contains about five. Hundred Times more genetic code than a so fitting that specific gene into that specific virus would be like trying to get a football stadium into a fedex truck something like that. Yeah, and most he has some other challenges to One is that do sheng affects billions of muscle cells all over the body. So this a delivery truck would have to be programmed to find all of these cells recognize them, and then infect them with this new genetic code. Yeah and some spent fifteen years tackling these challenges he was going along you is making progress he said, but it was coming one small step at a time. This is very challenging. It was mount ever said the gene therapy community in each one of these steps was setting up base camp, but then in nineteen, ninety, nine so mulcahy's work for that matter all gene therapy research pretty much came to a stop. The reason was that a teenager named Jesse. Gelsinger had died in the gene therapy experiment, right? I. Mean I. Remember Learning about that in graduate school in genetics. It was horrible. It was really sad the experiment he was part of had nothing to do with muscular dystrophy or the virus nothing to do with some all skis work, but it didn't matter right gene therapy trials were postponed or abandoned investors disappeared and so did research funding it stopped everything everyone got supercautious everyone except the muscular dystrophy association.

Coronavirus: Are We Back Where We Started?

"More about six months into this outbreak. And I've been you know a lot about how it all started. For me the first time I had anything about this virus was in January, a relative who works in Hong Kong had told me about this email. She'd gotten warning her of this. We'd cluster of pneumonia cases from mainland China They went many details and I didn't think much of it. Was On my mind for months Australia has endured the most prolonged and destructive bushfire emergency in memory I was in Australia at the time. The air was so smokey today. Someone told us that it made Melvin the most polluted city on earth. Who is just stifling. And then this big rain came rain. You're hearing now. And the air is so clear again. I, had bought a mosque for the smoke, a good one and brought it back to the states with me as we add memento that I thought the TAME would get a kick out of. Curiously some scientists now think of the beginning of this coronavirus pandemic as kind of fire. With spock's that made it out of China and around the world. We now think that the match was struck in November. That's probably when this virus fest emerged according to genetic analyses and patient data. And from China quickly spread. Recent research has found that by December. The virus was already in Europe. It was in sewage samples in Italy and someone in France was infected around Christmas. Soon the blaze came to the US. Didn't know it back then, but we now think that in January and early Feb it was one. SPOCK's in China and a couple of MBA's from Europe. And now six months on. This fire is still burning. Seeing record numbers of new cases in the US and cases of spiking and other places too like Iran. It almost feels like we're back to where we were months ago.

Producer Shima Oliaee on Making Dolly Partons America

"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury today? I speak with Shima Oli. Who together with Radio Lab Founder Jad Abu Murad produced the award winning show Dolly Parton America. And when I say award-winning, it's kind of personal for me. You see Dolly Parton. America beat out the show. You're listening to right now for the title of Discover Pods Best New podcast of two thousand nineteen. I guess I should also mention that there show just won a peabody award, and sadly inside podcasting wasn't in the running for that one. Regardless the fact that podcast I produced was in the running with a show about Dolly. Parton will always put a smile on my face when I was nine I idolized. Does I spent hours staring at her glossy album covers imagining what it would be like to be glamorous singer. And while that dream come true, it was still an incredible thrill for me to talk to Shema about this show. In case you haven't listened to the series yet. I want to play you a clip. This is from an episode called dixie disappearance in which Jad and she might take a look at some of the contradictions behind Dolly's iconic, persona. The episode centers around a wildly popular tourist event called Don. DIXIE STAMPEDE! It's a Rodeo style dinner theater, in which the civil war is acted out as quote, friendly competition. The word slavery isn't mentioned at any point during the show. In this club Shema and One through the experience of attending the event. Okay so basically! Warn you walk into the, arena. It's huge I wouldn't say it's a football field I would say it's like an Olympic size pool like with arena seats all around. It's like going to the Rodeo. Basically. It's like going to the Rodeo. It's like a ton of der- in the center of this massive oval. How many seats wasn't again? It was one thousand. Dolly Parton. And the whole conceit of this situation. Besides eating a tremendous amount of food, I mean a full chicken and pork line and some soup that has a lot of cream and a biscuit. It was a lot of food decides that. Blue quickly. find out your competition a friendly competition between neighbors. Five folks. Are. For. The whole arena is split in half on one side. You've got the north wind on the other side. And, the announcer who rides in on this horse on his steed. They just. He encourages each side to jeer at the other. Side fireworks. He asked you to kind of jeer at them. And then he goes to the South side and he tells us outside. Northern. Third. Foul smelling. Slobber all gas. Good here, way out of a wet paper bag there. Before we get started. You may hear a few names that you don't recognize. There's Aisha Harris who wrote a critical profile of the stampede after which Dolly removed the word Dixie from the events name. By the way we have put a link to that story in our show notes for this episode. There is also Dolly's nephew. Brian seaver as a kid Brian was talented break dancer, who sometimes performed onstage with Dolly he gives Shima and Jad a tour of Dolly's child home. In Tennessee's smokey mountains, Sarah's marsh is list. Who wrote a book about Dolly? Parton and University of Tennessee, Professor Lynn Sakho taught a class called Dolly Parton America, which is where the series got its name. Okay, let's jump into the interview. We kick things off with Shima revealing how she and Jad prepared for an introductory conversation with Dolly Parton. He comes up to me. This is this is actually kind of fun. He comes up to me. He has a book he like goes into the cabinet behind. My desk gets out a piece of yellow paper painted around up a tape. Sit around the outside of the book and he's like this top secret, but I needed to read this and then. I, need you to prepare me for a conversation with the person now as you know, I've already been researching and doing other things for his talk and other and other ideas that we're kind of cooking up for other series, and so he tells me it's Dolly, and you know so I read. This book is covered in yellow fluorescent paper. Which I think was unnecessary I don't. Don't think anyone cares so I read it I. Write all the questions, and are you writing questions like? Are you knowing okay? We're GONNA do this. Do you have any premise for the show yet? We're like what kinds of questions are you writing down? Just questions pop into your head as you're reading it or this was a very yeah. This is a very moment so this. This is just the introductory conversation. So I also think we just needed to have an introductory conversation you know before you even touch certain things and we were both green, which is the beauty of kind of a jazz reporting is? He's okay with like not knowing anything when he begins which I think. adds to kind of the journey. You go on when you start telling. Telling the story, so the listener is going on the same ride you on which is very, I think emotionally fulfilling so we didn't really know when we started we. We knew enough basics and I brought to him everything I found really interesting. The passages I had compelled questions. We go way went over them edited and he went to interview Dolly and he comes back. I listened to the tape. And you hear this in the third episode of the series where she's like even GonNa. Get a question in because ninety minutes goes by. After his first question, and she just does the Dalai magic

Revisiting the Archive: Larry Kramer

"I've talked before in this series revisiting the archive about anger. How it can fuel action? How an anger is partnered with love? It can produce a kind of righteous rage that propels us those of us who lived through the AIDS crisis. Know about it. Some of US learned it from Larry Kramer who died this week in Manhattan where he's lived for. Decades Larry was famous for being one of the first billions to sound the alarm during that last epidemic. The one that began forty years ago he was on the front lines even before aids was called AIDS and became a global epidemic at swept away more than thirty million lives before AIDS. Larry was best known for his work as a screenwriter and author but the virus that was claiming so many lives in the political indifference political negligence that greeted it turned Larry into a very public activist. His friends were dying and he felt compelled to do something more than to just bury the dead and mourn their loss in nineteen. Eighty-two Larry co-founded a gay men's health crisis now known as GM five years later he co-founded act up the AIDS coalition to unleash power. Act Up came to be known for its brilliant use of public protests to bring attention to the epidemic by early nineteen eighty nine. When I I met Larry AIDS take in more than sixty thousand lives. Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious. I approached the door to Larry's apartment in a building that fronts Washington Square Park in New York. City's Greenwich Village. As I said when this episode originally aired I got myself worked up. Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt. We talked about how we both had wanted to find a husband early in life and settle down and that led us back in time to Larry's memories as it confused and Unhappy College student in the Early Nineteen fifties. I pressed record interview with Larry Kramer Thursday January twenty six thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the home of Larry Kramer in New York City. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. When I went to Yale I thought I was the only gay person in the world and tried to kill myself because I was so lonely. Did try to What am I think that was fifty? Three was the year my freshman year. Yeah is awful. I mean I do want to go back that far curious because I was a college student on seventy six desperately unhappy. We're at Vassar College. There were there were a lot of gays. They weren't that many people think there were a lot if there were so many gays. Why was I so unhappy? Miserable person and And deaths seemed very appealing at moments during my freshman year when I was dating a woman in making off the man by in life and fifty three must have been much more difficult than seventy six at Vassar. You can even start in shifty. Three Easter I knew I was gay. I think from the day I was born and I think that there have been I. I now know that there were isolate. They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up. A car drove for like hours before we found a place that was quiet to do it and then he drove me back where you didn't say a word all of that list of yourself. I eight two hundred aspirin. Oh my God talk about slow and Miss. You must have been pretty miserable to swallow two hundred and yours anymore. Will after you wanted out. Was that who knows. It's a scene. I'll never forget the scene of taking pills the Yup and find you're still better. I didn't wake up. I I went to bed and I got scared and I call. The campus. Police came took me to the hospital and put myself and that was in woke then I fell asleep and I woke up in a room with bars and after grace new haven hospital and there. Was this very unpleasant hospital psychiatrist. Who said all right Mr Cramer? Why did you do it and I go fuck yourself or words to that end he said? I'm now you're not going to be let out of this hospital until you tell us why you did it. And I just had a few rubbed me the wrong way and I wouldn't have told who who knew why I did it anyway. So my brother who's always sort of looked after me came and got me out and he was friends with the dean of Freshmen. My brother had been the before me and And it was you know ordinarily when something like that happen you were shipped off to go join the army really in those days. Yeah and then you come back to Yale and you've grown up but they let me stay. If I went to the University of Coyote. Just his name was Dr Fry Clement Fry. And he was about in the sixties he had silver hair and it was a good looking man he whereas reptiles button down shirt and You just knew that. He cared more about Yale and he ever did about you

Makeup Artist Jillian Dempsey is Making Beauty Tutorials Better

"You just launch another company a an APP five beauty. Can we talk about that? Yes and I want. I would like you to know because I I know we're in a crisis at the moment And I just don't want to think that this was an idea that just came to mind within the last six weeks of what are our world has been going if anybody has been on it and see tutorials. It's pretty clear. This is not just six weeks in the making Chilean protective. Like I was pregnant with a baby APP in my belly and I wanted to give earth to this in a way and giving birth in a pandemic was never my intention however I was encouraged by my family and my clothes set of friends to to see the positive side of this as look people are are are need and it probably want to have some different ways in which to view beauty so I wanted to start with myself and then bring other artists on board and have it and create a platform so the user could just get in and get out pure convenience for the US user. You could control your adventure. You could jump on the APP. Know that we're on completely transparent. Whatever you're looking at you can use your products at home or you can choose to buy through the APP. You can try on the shade arcade with you know you cam who are the virtual leaders in the virtual. Try ON FOR MAKEUP. Which is incredible. And so you basically get to navigate and do this all within like the comfort of your your home which I think. We're all having a lot of that right now. We have a lot of the comfort of our home so just for people who haven't tried it yet. There is that like you can try on part of the APP. But then there's also these tutorials and so I was making my way through a lot of them and I kept thinking. These are so different from what we are now. Used to. As a youtube tutorial like some of them are only like ten seconds long and I was like cool. I just learned that. But but she wasn't like where's the commentary whereas the like lighting. You didn't do the little thing where you hold up the product and wiggle it in front of your hand. What what was your thinking with these stories. I will be brutally honest with you I I. I have stage fright. I don't like necessarily to get in front of a camera. I am completely in my comfort zone when when I'm working on a face because I get to sculpt I get to move I get to try. You know I get to work with the face. I Love I stay Z. Face like I get to work with your face and and it's my pleasure to do that to be able to work with you. Ever my hands or my brushes might tools are touching an an an and I like to study at your face. I like to say No faces ever the same but you can always say that certain techniques will always remain the same you will always have certain techniques like the cat. I have we ever ever ever known a cat. I like a little slick to ever be out of style. Can you think of one time? Because I sure can't so I saw you know. I'm one makeup artist but I have on boarded already another makeup artist and I plan to onboard more freelance makeup artists to show and reveal just their hands. We don't need to have the commentary. The job get stale and old. I don't WanNa hear it. I don't WanNa hear that again. I WANNA get straight to the I want to get straight to the point. I I'm really into if you are going out. How quickly can you get that information to get smokey eye? How fast if you want to try to put on a band of lashes might take you a minute but if you studied the tutorial see how this artists does it. That artist PUTS THEIR BAND. Because we all worked we all have different styles and everybody has a different face so I'd like to place the artist with the brands and that is how in growing this this APP. So tell me this. How did you decide which looks we're GonNa get it to toil? You mentioned the cat. I you mentioned putting on a band lashes. I call it the arrive and drive. Basically the model shows up we have everything ready and whatever the model brings that day. We have a loose mood board happening. We have the products out. We have a mood board when the model shows up. I want to be able to take if the the model has a pimple on her face. Maybe I'll say you know what let's change the mood board. We're going to show how to cover a pimple. I want to take create what the model provides which provides content to grow. And like that you have the the model let you dictate. What the look

New England's Dark Day - May 19, 1780

"Day was may nineteenth seventeen. Eighty this guy. In New England and parts of Northern Canada turned unusually dark in an event remembered as the dark day several days before may nineteenth people in New England notice that the sky appeared smokey and the Sun and the moon appeared read on the morning of May Nineteenth. The Sky was cloudy and still had a reddish you throughout the morning. This guy continued to get darker by noon. People were using candles for light. The darkness stretch from the skies over Portland Maine to the southern coast of New England. It was so unusual that many people paint some people went to church while others went to taverns birds reportedly suffocated from the smoke and ash. Some people noted that the air smelled like sit the Connecticut legislature even move to adjourn Abraham Davenport. A member of the Governor's council opposed joining the legislature. He said that quote the day of judgement is either approaching or it is not if it is not there is no cause of an adjournment if it is to be found doing my duty. Harvard Professor Samuel Williams collected observations about the darkness and wrote about the day's events. According to his account the darkness continued until the middle of the next night. He said the following candles were lighted up in the houses. The birds having some their evening songs disappeared and became silent fouls retired to roost. The were crawling all around as at break of day objects could not be distinguished but at a very little distance and everything for the appearance. In Gloom of Night Williams reported that people saw a layer of scum on the surface of water that appeared to be the ashes of burnt leaves from his observations. He determined the likely cause of the darkness. He suggested that fires had caused favors to rise in collect in the air since the weather had been clear the air heavy in the wind quote small invariable but many people dismissed the idea that wildfires caused the darkness in the weeks after may nineteenth people proposed different theories about the origins of the event. Some thought that sunlight was being blocked by a huge mountain others believe that biblical prophecy being fulfilled later. Research suggested that distant forest fires cost the darkness researchers from the University of Missouri and US Forest Service examined tree rings and fire scars and determined that a major fire occurred in seventeen eighty in Algonquin provincial. Park in Ontario Canada. They concluded that a low pressure weather system curate smoke from the West or north to New England. The fires in the Algan highlands were the most likely cause of New England's dark day but fires burning in the eastern. Us could have also contributed to the darkness.

We we've kind of laid off a lot of staff so we're running with about a staff at thirty so you know my day starts off at four thirty in the morning and head to the restaurant by five thirty and I'm putting ribs on the smoker and you know I'm doing whatever I can to help prep in the kitchen to get started off and you know now most of my time we just implemented a system Point of sale system in the restaurant yesterday we went live. Which a great time to do it but you know it had to get done so you know it's just crazy. It's just all day long as I feel like. I'm a consultant to my own business. You know just looking at processes and constantly trying to figure out how to make for more efficient and easier for the employees better for the customers. Are you seeing any of this meat shortage that we were warned about about a week ago? They were saying by the end of this past week that we were going to be seeing meat shortages. Is it affecting you at all well? It's it's not really affecting the I've I've heard a little bit. You know people were talking about it. We've got some pretty good partners That we've locked into this contract so you know we're pretty protected At this point and they've made some nice moves source they'll say. Hey there's you know. Fifty cases a poor coming in on Tuesday. Put An order for twenty five of those on Monday afternoon and so then it comes through. So they've they've really taken care of us on that side you know we've moved you know some of it's not what we want. We've you know briskets we've had to mow cooked brisket flash points and we've been cooking frozen brick points for a long time and about two months ago we had to go to brisk frozen flats. But you know we're able to call him out. We're getting a nice quality. You know upper choice or even prime a Lotta time flat coming through and we've been able to hold the price steady Unlike some people that are not tied in or don't have any contracts. I mean they're seeing those prices go through the roof. We're kind of you know we're still paying the same that we were paying two or three months ago. So we're in pretty good shape. Airports went up a little bit But overall beef and ribs were locked in so we've been in pretty good shape from a revenues perspective on looking for anything specific. Obviously but how of the last couple of months compared to a traditional you know month or two depending on whatever time of the year at these restaurant. Well I mean we're running about fifty percent of our normal revenue volume now fifty percent understanding that normally thirty percent of that businesses catering That's going out the back door so relative we're were actually killing it when it comes to Pick up the only problem that we have is. We can process it down our line fast enough we just can't get it expedited out to the customer fast enough without gathering a big crowd. So that's what we're constantly trying to get more efficient and how we get. I mean we're turning away business every single day and we're lucky that were that way but You know chances are if you call at five thirty at night. You're not going to be able to you know call it. An order were sold out for the rest of the day. I mean you can still walk in and you might wait twenty thirty minutes to get it done. But we're filling everything in time slots trying to you know we're trying to process Seven or eight orders every fifteen minutes and then we're trying to add on five or six walk ins on of that so you know. We're we're churning out an order at least once every minute if not more during war from Iowa. Smokey DIS joining me here on the show. Smokey DIS bbq dot.
