T. Rex Was a 'Foodie,' Scientists Find
"There was a paper that came out recently called complex neuro vascular system in the dentistry of tyrannosaurus and it was published in historical biology by so chiro koby and sochi tori. And it's around how t. Rex may have had a sensitive tip of its snout like that displayed. A source horny yet but the headlines were more about it being a foodie or a picky eater. Where's the display a source. One was like it was a tender lover. It it's a really interesting. The two different headline types. There's a lot of reasons. It would be useful to have a sensitive snout so to kind of summit up. I liked the way the new york times article. Put it quote. T. rex to eat blindly and basically t rex had these complex nerves and the tip of the jaw may have been sensitive and that would have helped. Tell the difference between soft tissue and other parts of the meat. It was eating so then. If it was available it could choose to eat the soft parts interesting. Which is why people were talking about being foodie. So what the others did was they. Cat scan a left mandible or job. t rex. It was an immature specimen. That was found in the hell creek formation. And they also. Cd scanned some other orna. Fisken's like triceratops montessori fuqua stores and they looked at extent crocodilians and birds and what they were doing was they were looking at the neuro vascular canal. That's this combination of where small blood vessels and nerves collagen fibers and sells stored fat. Were and in t. Rex the neuro vascular canal in the dentistry has this complex branching pattern actually similar to extend crocodiles and what they said were. Tactile foraging birds on his which are also known as ducks. Kind of interesting to think of t. Rex being similar to a duck So they assumed that the upper job t. rex had a similar

Food Shocks and How to Avoid Them
"Bought is a food supply shock so a series received influence of foods for different food types and win city experiences a sudden decrease in this impulse. We call that a food shock and what can cause that. Yes there are many causes for these foot. Supply shocks one main cause is climate climate change climate variability as we experience more droughts and have a strong effect on crop production. Geopolitical instabilities can be problem. I mean the more recent. Why perhaps it's more of a demand induced shock that we spend with the covet where people are not going out to eat at restaurants decreases demand for food that can also caused a shock. What is the effect of food shocks. Inner city they can have an influence on foot price if prices go a little bit up then. Low income of born of populations in a city can be impacted in sochi. Look at Low income underserved communities like blacks hispanics in the united states. You see these percentages of fooling secure people going up in cities of the us so cities have this problem. They can be vulnerable to food shocks. What did you set out to do in your study. We wanted to look at Whether they are lessons from nature that we can learn in the way we design our foot systems in the way we design our cities specifically we wanted to look at whether supply chain diversity can help cities cope with foot shocks. We know from ecosystems that greater diversity can be beneficial in terms of protecting ecosystems against external shocks so we wanted to check hypotheses on our food systems and cities. And how did you do it. What were your methods. Yes for us to do that. We work with the large data said describing the food supplies from regions in the us to citizen the us we had around maybe three hundred cities in data and then we develop a measure of supply chain diversity where you know cd. Some more diverse foot supply when that city links to trading partners. That are more different.

The tourism industry has been hit hard by the pandemic but now the kenyan government is taking steps to better manage the wildlife population by conducting an animal census. The world's africa correspondent halima economy. Brings us the story. The national park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in kenya. It's not far from nairobi. And it's huge more than one hundred fifty square miles in view. Mount kilimanjaro in neighboring tanzania tourists from all around the world. come here to see elephants. Zebras lions and other animals roam freely. But patrick mundi is here for work. He's the acting director of wildlife research and training institute. It's overseeing an ambitious government-sponsored 'self to count all of kenya's wildlife we've never done national census for all wildlife species have over one thousand different wildlife species across the range from the northern kenya in the area to the audience. Ammonia says in the past surveys have mostly focused on highly trafficked animals like rhinos and elephants. This first ever national census will all the major wildlife on land and in the see the goal he says isn't to be exact it's to establish a baseline of data we'll start off having a baseline information and also will use this opportunity to concentrate it that that is scattered. Most wildlife data is scattered across the country. Some comes from local and international scientists. Other data comes from kenya conservation. Projects nats created gaps in information says when he came through a wildlife biologist in nairobi. She says a lot of data is focused on well known animals elephants in lyons the focus on aquatic species is also a problem because it means that smaller species some that have not enjoyed the same level of attention. Both nationally and owner global platform have may be suffered lack of data. The hirola antelope is one example k. Says recent research shows hirola and other antelope species are in danger of going extinct. When you don't consistently count estimate in follow-through the status of animals sometimes the pushed beyond toward a threshold of extinction. Recording mayor animals is also on patrick emojis.

A large island with the dominican republic. A two hundred thirty four mile border divides the two countries. That border may be changing though. The president of the dominican republic has ordered a new border wall to be built. The world's monica campbell reports on the controversy. That's causing the wall. So far is about thirteen feet. High made of concrete bricks steel and barbed wire at the top. It cuts the rocky isolated area and marks an ambitious new plan by louis. Iv not the dominican. Republic's president can listen up. He told congress. Get emma garbage. Blame immigrants only narcotraffic. I want to end unauthorized immigration drug trafficking and other illegal contraband. He says the border has four official crossings. News footage from afp shows guards opening the gates at one of those crossings. Hundreds of patients crowd through to sell their goods. On the dominican side. Women hold large saxon produce with kids in tow. The new wall is meant to fill the gaps in between the official crossings. So far this year about fourteen miles offense is up.

Irregularly that wall will force bribes to go up and says ho sway gusta llandough agrees. He leads the un's international organization for migration in the dominican republic. He also notes that many dominicans do believe. It's reasonable to enforce border security. His advice is that before dominican officials build more wall. they make sure they're not blocking out haitians. The country needs just look at the construction industry. His says why you marry fees you'll get santo domingo gain waste they generally. I guess you're going to see a building being constructed in the capital. That isn't filled with haitians.

People in the city of goma in eastern congo are ending the week the way they began it under threat of a volcanic eruption from one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes mountaineer and gung-ho were reported saturday night without warning lava from saturday's eruption flow to the outskirts of goma killing at least thirty two people destroying homes and forcing people to flee for safety to neighboring rwanda authorities say a new eruption could occur at any moment threatening goma of some two million people. Tens of thousands of people are reportedly fleeing the city via acklin goma and writes about central africa for our partners at the economist. Since the volcano. I erupted.

My house rattles. I've got friends you've moved in. Who are living in taller buildings in a bungalow and we've been advised to get out of tool buildings as the earthquake seemed to be getting stronger. I went to one of the sites which was badly affected area. Colds behani and it had just been totally flattened by the molten lava and where these high-seas to stand there were just smoking black rocks and sulphurous smoke coming off them and one man. I spoke to charles kumble by more was taking amongst the rubble. He was picking up scraps of metal and he's sort of burnt scorched pans and pots. And he said he had. This is my house and has been reduced to rubble. He was at a wedding when the eruption happened with his wife and his two eldest children are cable. His youngest children ages six and two were staying in the house adopted by the neighbors and he hasn't seen them since they're going looms over goma and it lost erupted in two thousand and two and it was much worse hundreds of people killed and at least one hundred and twenty thousand. People were left homeless. The volcano is one of the most active volcanoes. In the world's i spoke to vulcanologists he said is the most dangerous volcano in africa. Partly because it's incredibly close to densely populated city. It's only about ten kilometers away from the outskirts. Gonna and the lava is also very fast flowing. He said that the lava was one of the fastest flowing lavas in the world. It's difficult to monitor. Volcanoes is vulcanologists to said that often the equipment gets turned from the volcano. But unfortunately that's not the only problem. The volcano center was funded by the world. Bank the funding. Tom run out in october. Twenty twenty because there are allegations of embezzlement within the organization and the world bank didn't renew their funding so the volcano center has received very little funding in the last seven months. They weren't monitoring vocab lapses classes they would otherwise have been. The eruption came as a big surprise to most people. Were no warnings that this was something we should prepare for. Most of the people whose houses have been flattened to probably just going to have to melt into neighboring communities there are no camps to go to. There's going to be difficult for the host community to look after them because people in goma very poor. Most people survive on less than two dollars a day.

Dhaka collapsed killing more than eleven. Hundred people and injuring. Some twenty five hundred others. Thousands of tons of metal and concrete came crashing down burying hundreds of workers. The eighth floor building housed five garment. Factories owned by brands throughout europe and north america. The accident shook bangaladesh's some thirty four billion dollar garment industry. The south asian country is the second largest garment exporter in the world behind china and according to the world bank. The industry employs more than four million bangladeshis. Mostly women. sonia actor was one of them. She was on the sixth floor of rana plaza operating a sewing machine day. The building collapsed. Logan bangor who serve four days.

The initiative also gave unions workers unprecedented involvement in making their industries.

"The world where co production of gbh. Boston and the strongman of eastern europe are meeting today. Russian president vladimir putin and belorussia leader alexander. Lukashenka should have a lot to discuss at their meeting in sochi russia. On top of the list lukashenka's decision to order a fighter jet to intercept a passenger plane and force it to land in the belarus capital minsk. He did that to arrest a twenty six year. Old dissident ramon pro to save putin has defended the action but the tactic has brought harsh international condemnation and headaches for the two leaders are schreibman is a political analyst and a non resident scholar at the moscow carnegie center joins us from minsk rpm before we get to the putin kushinka meeting. How do you explain the ryan. Air incident from earlier. This week i mean. What do you think was lukashenka's motivation. Bellarusse leafs under very heavy handed. Crackdown in the recent nine. Ten months after the presidential election which was widely regarded as raked and forbi- larousse. Since there is nothing you in this behavior for his government today. The primary objective is to neutralise all the political threats as you know belarus was rocked by the end to look products last summer last autumn and he still leaves in this atmosphere of a besieged fortress and so focus on productivity was one of the most wanted as he put it terrorist most wanted political activists and the international repercussions and the reputational consequences. Were just secondary in that moment. Okay let's move to today. What do we know so far about the meeting between alexander lukashenka and vladimir putin while they started in the usual manner joke in bulk in the west putin dropped this basically accusation that the west that you do the same. And why would you criticise belarus. In this case honestly. I don't expect any consequential decisions coming out from this because look can push has been meeting for many times in the recent years in the recent months and every time there were huge. Expectations like samson sensational would be signed or announced. And nothing like this happened. How would you describe lukashenka's relationship with putin and russia. At the moment it's difficult leser. Putin hoped that the two countries could be united basically and he pushed lukashenka. Tour's this project of reunification of two countries Refused so. I'm not sure that putin is heavy about lukashenko's political crisis at home that russia has to pay for basically russia. Pass to pay for all the expenses politically diplomatically. But also economically you mentioned the mass protests last summer against lukashenko and belarus and that followed what most people saw as a rigged presidential election given. What's going on and the ryanair incident. What is the current state of the belorussian opposition movement. On the one hand there haven't been any growth of lukashenko popularity at the same time. The opposition was basically crushed by the repression of the lost year. This year and most of its leaders are either jailed or exiled so this is a difficult challenge for the opposition and exiles. They basically are now waiting for another window of opportunity to open art jim. This is not an abstraction for you your chin scratching in washington. Dc or new york. You're in minsk in belarus and you're seeing all this right up close. What effect is having a new in your life while it's not the most pleasant months i heaven here on that right now. Many of my friends are in jail and write them letters. Ice read reports about new of people. I know mike winston my former colleagues being arrested right now as we speak nobody sixth but the idea of leaving the country and just observing everything that happens here from across the border is not that easier because you will still be worried for the people at home for your relatives your friends but at the same time you have will have your homeland basically stolen from you. You will be able to return. It's it's basically it was loose. If you're thinking of leaving the country staying in the country it's both are Hasn't have to seek wishes less unpleasant for you tim.

"Say race allies people in this like creative themes in the companies especially in the policy of fowler on the bright side. Hustles says the conversation about structural. Racism about privilege is just beginning in spain and maybe the equality stamped buckle. We'll give it a boost for the world. i'm sarah birnbaum. You probably want to keep your mask on for this next story. You might have heard of something called a gut. Microbiome the idea. Is that each one of us has an ecosystem within our bodies tiny microbes unique to just us. Our next guest studies microbes in the bowels of cities metro. Subways and transit systems. Chris mason is a geneticist at weill cornell medicine. In new york city chris iranian study looks at the unique microbial signature of transit systems around the world. What exactly is a microbiome when it comes to something like a subway system. The microbiome is the collection of all the organisms that you can't quite see hence their microscopic and the biomass that entire ecosystem of the bacteria viruses. Fungi even a little bit of human. Dna that might show up their plants. Really all the dna. That's kind of under your fingertips when you ride the subway or get on the buster really touch any city surface. There's this whole ecosystem that's right under our fingers and we've begun to explore it and just published work on sixty cities around the world. How varied are the cities in terms of what you're finding. It's interesting because every city has its own real unique genetic fingerprint which is is really evident of what you see with your eyes when you travel different country for example you'll see different plants animals and it's very evident of course by there are different types of species that really define different cities of for example. Those by the coast often had more marine-related bacteria and some even contribute towards dead sense of of the smell of the ocean When you're like in the city you can actually see some. In the bacteria in the virus that we find and also a lot of them were really hearty microbes that can survive on stone or metal and a third set though were ones they were pretty universally skin related bacteria for humans. Show pretty commonly. What inspired you to look at the microbes living on public transit systems. There were three things that happened to me. One is i. Ride the subway lab. So i got curious and the second is we started doing a lot. More sequencing of tumor samples and patient samples for looking for human dna. But we always find microbial dna. I wanted to understand better. In terms of human disease and the third thing is related to him a parent and my daughter went to actually looked to subway pole when she was three years old and i really wanted to know what had happened. Because clearly if you lick a subway pull it creates this really intense microbial exchange also seen people were like other kids will be riding the subway like grab a piece of gum and put it in their mouth that they found on the subway. So there's weird things that happened when you're a parent and i really want to understand what was there. And there was no data when we started this study to understand the kirby ecology in mass transit. So so we went to go figure it out. So what i'm amazed at. Is that as a parent. You didn't go. Oh come out and and rush your daughters to hospital so as as a scientist you're more like m- this what's time to study as a i wanna run towards information rather than away away in fear you. What's the significance of this. i mean. is it mostly a curiosity thing. Or what is it telling us. There's two big takeaways. I think from the study. You know one of them that we describe as it. There's really rich treasure trove of new biology. That's right under our fingertips we've found over ten thousand new viruses almost one thousand new kinds of bacteria and other kinds of fiji's we also picked up what are called new christopher arrays. We found that their biology reveals new biochemistry. New functions really knew a microbial abilities that we can then use for. Potentially new medicines new therapeutics diagnostics. The second big takeaway those that we also met the anti microbial resistance or the antibiotic resistance around the world and this shows us where we seeing more resistance in different pockets in the world. Okay what about the old hand sanitizer issue. I mean i think i've seen more bottles of hand sanitizer this past year than i have in my entire life. You know we did see a change during the pandemic and we've been able to see the hand sanitizer and people on the subways has created a disruption in that microbiome basically. There's less our neighbors less viral. Arnie we did see in. Some cases trace amounts of the virus in different cities but none of them appear to be infectious. It was interesting ecosystem that we've been tracking not also a viral surveillance network kind of an early warning system and we already see this past year of hand sanitizer. People avoiding mass transit has led to a decrease in the diversity of the organisms in our cd's red so actually drop down and we expect we're sampling again on an ongoing that will see that that diversity and presence of the human. Arnie start to pick up again very soon. Chris mason is geneticist at weill cornell medicine in new york city. Thanks a lot chris. You're listening to the world. Tourists flocked to kenya to see wildlife now for the first time the country is conducting a census of all wildlife by land sea. And from the air when you don't consistently count animals sometimes they're pushed byun the us a threshold of extinction. every animal counts and is counted. That's ahead on the world. I'm carol.

"With the world. A big may culpa today. Germany officially acknowledged that it committed genocide in the african nation of namibia. And it's agreed to pay one point one billion dollars in compensation in the early twentieth century. German colonizers killed tens of thousands of ero and nama people in what was then colony. Germany and namibia have been negotiating this deal since two thousand fifteen in an attempt to heal the wounds of the past yergin. Zimmer is professor of global history and colonialism at the university of hamburg in germany uruguay. Is this deal. So significant is an important deal. It's a landmark event because it's for the first time that the former colonial power acknowledges responsibility for crimes which happened to h- more than one hundred years ago and not only acknowledged it rhetorically but says some money to to heal the consequences or the hub to people the victims descendants. who suffered that beyond the compensation. Why is it so important to acknowledge this. As a genocide does the two sides to this question it's important for namibian for herero nama with them to sort of closure to this history. But i think it's important for for germany for german society kids. We have to come to terms with colonialism colonialism as a system of racist structure violence. Your can you give us some details of this genocide that germany committed. Who are the era in naama. People's and what exactly happened to them. Now harare namo river to two nations living in what later became namibia German southwest africa and in one thousand nine hundred eighty four quite late in the imperial game. Germany also became colonial power and acquired columnist since germany was late to the game. They tried to overtake the other european powers by being more efficient colonizers than two british the french or spanish and they tried to do it by completely remodeling the society and economy of german southwest africa. We now taking count. The rights of the indigenous pizza and vendor nama resisted against that then sent in the troops and they committed this genocide of war on elation by driving the herrero into the desert and then sealing off stats though that they couldn't escape from this bortles area and then they fought against the mama by destroying the livelihood of the nama and then later on by incarcerating survivors in concentration camps. Some of them there were put into the concentration camps unto parish. Now now in this deal that germany announced today it did officially recognize this as a genocide but it refused to call the payment to namibia reparations or compensation why is that. They could nyse as genocide in the modern in the contemporary sense of. They said that you're not recognizing it ten aside in any legal way because the genocide convention which made ten aside a crime only came into effect in one thousand nine hundred forty eight and it cannot be applied to events before that which by the way is is is interesting remark because that means that the genocide during world war two dollar cost would be seen as a genocide in legal terms. So i'm not quite sure that. The german government salt through that they want to avoid any legal obligation to pay reparations. That's by the genocide in modern sense but no reparations no reparations but just development aid or aid to heal the because they are terrified by setting a legal precedent a because of other colonies and be because of open disputes about reparations coming from were to mainland greece and poland but also with with Italy or france because of massacres against the civilian population which the german army and the assess committed during the occupation. and bowdoin.

Torque me unacceptable and therefore we totally unimpressed. I asked him to explain the problems he sees in what germany has offered. Germany has been talking to our government about us without us. And that is fundamentally unacceptable to us when we take the analogy of the jewish holocaust. Germany ended up signing two separate agreements. Particular one with the state of israel and practical to with the resentatives of the jewish groups. Now this not think analogies to but when it comes to these so called reconciliation agreement that russia now negotiated by jimmy and the namibian government it is a purely a public relations stunt by germany.

Organizing: The KonMari Method
"There are so many ways to organize and our brains work differently. So some methods May resonate wage more than others most tidying methods Advocate a room by room or a little by little approach creating a scenario that may just never end because it's not structured wage with a beginning and an end date today or talking specifically about the con Mari method people around the world have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its Effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful introspective and forward-looking. I have a name Guided Kristen Ivy and Karen Sochi to talk about the con Mari method. They are not only licensed con Mari Consultants, but they're also the co-host of the spark Joy podcast dedicated to the transformative power of surrounding yourself with joy and letting go of all the rest spark Joy has over a hundred and fifty episodes filled with practical home organizing tips that you can indulge in while you tidy Kristen tell me your thoughts on getting organized during this time when we feel like we don't have much control over all the things that are happening around us in the world. How important is it right now, so it's extremely helpful. Number one reason is comfort is so important right now and our home is something that we can actually control. I immediately thought about everyone who doesn't feel really comfortable or organized at home and how they're not going to have that break where they can go to work log. Not look at the Clutter work is now at home along with many other activities. So I was on a mission from day one to help people who are feeling a little bit too close to their clutter get through that and now that we are a little bit more used to this new normal than I've been helping my clients virtually getting really settled with their work from home situation by doing a tiny desk series. We're we're actively tidying through our screens cuz we're getting really comfortable with that. So that's the good news. So we've been able to still, you know tidy on no matter where you are in your personal Journey. There's always room for baby steps forward organizing can be learned. It's a practice much like meditation. I feel hard in the beginning but it gets familiar and more natural as time goes on Karen. Were you always an organizer I come from a long line down? Very organized people and organized in a sense that they would relieve their own anxiety by vacuuming it 2:00 in the morning and that kind of thing. So things were not really ever out of place. I come from a long line of collectors. So I inherited both of those traits. I was a collector which in some ways is described as an organized hoarder and I took elected all kinds of things. I collected antiques and collectibles and I could never just owned one of something. I found one Bell in a souvenir shop that was great on vacation. And then all of a sudden was collecting Bells from all over the place. It was just really a thing with me when I finally realized how much time I was spending just taking care of all of this stuff. I realized even though on the outside things look very organized in my home. It wasn't really organized at all. It was really just at a mask set of things that I was continually maintain. And it was really keeping me from having the kind of life that I wanted to have. It really kept me stuck in the past. It kept me stuck in one place just emotionally and psychically off and I realized that I I had to start becoming much more selective about what I was surrounding myself with so I guess in a way I was organized at least it looked that way on the outside home, but mentally it was just nothing but chaos in my life. I always enjoy the process of self-reflection because when we do it, we learn so much about ourselves tell me about the move you may that gave you some different perspective on yourself. So as moving from one small apartment to another small apartment in New York. Both Apartments was super different from each other the first appointment that I had lived in for nine years hundred and ten year old five-story appointment in a really old historic part of New York City and I was moving to the 35th floor of a brand new high rise skyscraper. Are in Midtown the appointment was so different. There was no way that I could take that old life with me. I was also moving in with my now husband and it was our first shared home. So I knew that way to decide once and for all whether I was going to continue being surrounded by all of this stuff or I wanted to try something different. So at that same time Marie's book came out in English the life-changing magic of tidying up and I somehow just bought it and you know, I have no idea how I found it to begin with read the book and decided that it's part of my move I was going to do is complete, Mary tidying festival and see what that led me. So I did and I followed the book as best as I could. I ended up getting rid of half or more of everything I own and moved into this apartment with such lightness and such optimism about what the future held that I was just submitting with his whole idea that knob Was it about the stuff but it was about my future and was about my life going forward and that's really how I kind of fell in love with with Kamari and getting organized

Like how are you going to have the family over for meals when they've they're not gonNA come and like that's not gonNA. Happen. I. I literally have not thought I'm sorry to interrupt you. I have not thought about. The basically the lack of a macy's Thanksgiving parade until just this moment and oh I and I'm really sad about. By by the way, I've I've actually had because I a couple of weeks ago I was. I you know how you you fall into. Google. Whole rabbit hole and I started to search I'm like well is the macy's parade going to happen and their official website had no information about this year show. and. So I started searching for information about lake marching bands will the marching bands be there and then I found something that basically said. None of the marching bands are going to be there all know. So marching bands are gone and there was some alleged rumor about how it's just GonNa be like a modified parade with like maybe clowns and some small balloons, clouds and small balloon that sends dreadful. But it's like there's mean clearly the parade if it exists watch be incredibly modified and what about the dog show the national dog show that comes on after Thanksgiving Day parade how's that going to happen? Yeah, that's tough so Anyone that I will I I assume hopefully knock on wood that there will be NFL. Games going on because the NFL as of now is is still planning to go forth with season without any fans or with limited fans I should say But yeah. Somebody the dog show. Yeah. At football in the middle of like flu season shirt. That's just. Listen, Keith we still have some big releases. That's that's the one silver lining. I should say is that there are still some big releases going on some big albums. Obviously there will be big single releases with I feel like we've had a huge Lee. Eventful summer in terms of single and album releases, which has been pretty cool that they're still tough stuff for us to talk about throughout summer and there will be things. To talk about this fall. So let's start with some of the big albums that we know have a release date. In are officially coming as far as we know, and then we'll kind of get into the question marks the albums that are rumored to becoming there have been in the works for years and might materialize this fall you never know. We are now past the grammy eligibility period. So whatever we're talking about is not going to be up for a twenty twenty one grammy award but maybe twenty, twenty two which feels forever away but you never know yeah. Sochi, let's talk about. Big Sean. Detroit to which I have heard part of I think is really great. Coming out September fourth. And I. It's interesting because big sean is someone that has a huge fan base obviously. Has Never had the kind of critically acclaimed album, but I think that. We'll see how this album performs, but I know people are very excited about that one, and then later in September, we have a couple of albums Max of sweet but psycho fame and he been coming on September eighteenth. Any thought any thoughts on on any of those big Sean of Amax Keith urban just in terms of they I see char perspective I I, feel like they're sort of the prelude to the storm. Just. The early indications of might becoming I. Think it's been a long time coming for Max. So it's great to see that she's dropping album after sweet butts psycho and the successive kings and Queens. I'm not particularly a huge like hip hop aficionados Jason is so I take his word strongly when he suggests that Big Sean is one to watch. In terms of this album, it's definitely a kind of high-profile hip hop album. Yeah. So just very quickly. So is something else coming in September two chains so help me God, which is am a big chains guy. So I have high hopes for that album.
It's Okay To Admit You're Not Okay by Melani Schweder
"It's okay to admit you're not. Okay. Bye Melanie sweeter of a brighter wild dot com. Hello dear friends. If you're anything like me, you're probably quite accustomed to putting on a smile and acting fine even when you're not sometimes, we can't avoid work school or social situations. No matter how we're feeling and we don't always feel comfortable dragging around our demons with us. So we lift up the corners of our mouths, cover up the pain and Spat out empty catchphrases in the guise of staying positive. We even do this to ourselves. Sitting at home alone were staring into the mirror we talk up little inspirational sayings and force are nagging little mental demons back into the dark corners. This is probably something that everyone can at least partially relate to but his practically a cornerstone of the chronically ill community. We are afraid of being a Debbie Downer afraid of being vulnerable afraid of being set apart from the rest of our friends and coworkers, and so the masks go on we say everything's okay even if we're exhausted or depressed or in a painful flare up. Even I find myself repeating the same phrase. When asked the obligatory `non-question question how are you? Oh, I'm doing well and you it's almost like someone has pulled an invisible string in my back prompting the exact response regardless of how I'm actually feeling that day. Maybe you find yourself doing the same. And just so we're clear I'm not advocating for spilling your guts out whenever someone simply tries to make small talk. There's a time and place for sharing your truce and struggles plus it's honestly just as bad to respond to someone asking how you are with I'm so stressed or tired or depressed or angry each and every time that's not a helpful way to interact with the world either perhaps you know someone who takes these opportunities to launch into a pity-seeking diatribe about their latest symptoms or doctors, appointments, more career failures, and perhaps your reaction to this person only reinforces your smile and fake it till you make it approach just something ponder. But this blog is really about allowing yourself to be exactly where you are right now instead of pretending or putting on a show, there's a pervasive oppression in the positivity and spiritual communities that tend to make us feel ostracized for experiencing a depth of painful and sometimes uncomfortable emotions. pain or fear or despair, and we are told to simply get rid of those feelings and replace them with something Shinier in prettier and happier. But the problem is emotions just don't work that way. When we stuff down our darkness, we only invite in more anxiety and shame wrapping are already blue moods in a blanket of self loathing embarrassment for those of us on. A healing adventure it's hard not to get sucked into the cult of positive thinking our brains absorb all the quickey facebook posts and motivational quotes, and soon, we begin to think that our ability to feel a wide range of emotions. Both good and bad might be an unhealthy think. Maybe we should only be feeling morm- fuzzy positive things. Then maybe we will finally heal ourselves. no let's just stop right there. Yes being optimimistic and choosing to focus on the lessons and opportunities, and all of Life's challenges is a good thing and can help you feel better. But you know what place real healing comes from self acceptance when you allow yourself to feel everything fully to sit with each thought and emotion until you've seen their every angle, that's when you start to heal when you accept yourself as beautifully flawed human being with both shadow an light aspects. That's when you start to heal when you allow yourself to be afraid and vulnerable and let love and support into your life. That's when you start to heal. You don't heal by denying your pain you only he'll when he walked through it. When something is kept invisible that thing tends to grow stronger, right so stop fighting with your own truth and allow yourself admit you're not okay. Sometimes, you can scream it in your car during rush hour traffic. You can softly side into your to your Sochi Yoga Mat. You can see it in therapy or over coffee with your best friend. It doesn't matter so much the method just that you're allowing yourself to be where you are without judgment. Dark things live within all of us is not just you all we can experience fear pain desperation loneliness Malays and lots more things that maybe we think we shouldn't be feeling but by denying them or sugar coating them, we're only letting them grow and fester until we're sick with self negation. So ask yourself how am I really feeling right now what is going well in my life and what are the things that I want to change? What is making me anxious or depressed or angry, and how can I allow those feelings to just be? I've been do some very dark places in my own life with six years of illness already passed a recent painful divorce and unexpected move out of my beloved home and current career and financial pressures. Yes. I think of tasted the unique flavor of every emotion on the spectrum at this point Augusta Tori journey of doubt and fear freedom and heartbreak pain an awakening. I've been lucky to have a beautiful few people who then runaway upon seeing my suffering they simply held space for me to feel what else feeling in the moment no judgment. No shame. No frenzied attempts at fixing me. I felt safe in that space to admit I wasn't okay. Are you ready to hold that kind of space for yourself? I hope you are or at least in the time being a hope you have a beautiful few people of your own who can hold it for you. Just remember everything you're feeling and experiencing is just perfect. You are exactly where you are supposed to be let yourself explore the shadows as well as playing the light.

look at all right let's jump back into our talk here about main service lines so we went through just to recap kind of you know how to spot it would you guys can do at home you know turn off of the water main you can you know run your sink and then go out and check the the water meter if you can't find it call your water just jurisdiction they'll tell you where your your meters out Turner said if you see some movement then the nice folks at American leak detection can come out so the next question I have those Turner's now what do you use for technology now you found it okay there's a leak happening in the main service line like that where the heck is it so are are we we induce an inert gas into the system that we use electronic microphones to listen subsurface to where that gas is actually escaping out of the week so what is okay and gas means what it's a nitrogen gas safe readily available it's not you know not contaminated water or anything like that and so how do you are you getting that you're getting that into the pipe right the main line correct everybody how do you how do you do that I'm going through and I can adapt to pretty much any cold water source so you know ideally a host spake it skews me host picket exterior would be the easiest for me so I don't have the string hoses all through people's houses but you know if that has to happen that we go through sink angle stop I can adapt like I said pretty much any cold water source inside the home so you basically fill up the entire system with this nitrogen and the sinner gas correct correct okay so John this is gone was like you know we're doing he pumps you don't copper like the bubble tester with the soap is similar to that yeah so is gonna make sounds different than what we're hearing ambient sounds okay so it'll make you can think about a kid blowing us up with us the straw in a milk glass when they're little yeah I blow bubbles yeah that's one of the sounds kinda you're listening for you never hear any order sounds on there I hear also tells you to pick up like phones you know like the cordless loans well it the first free Jennifer's like Venice ghost in life people all right but what okay so this device you're listening what is this technology you have in I mean for as far as a sound listening what is it what is it is it like a a meter or something or where it's all yeah it's indeed in analog style skews me meter with a you know we have various microphones at that attached to that so we can change frequencies tones kind of filter through to pick out the best you know wave length of that that that and the leak is making and how accurate can you be within how many feet of the leak ET you know I I ninety nine percent of the time what were spot on the sink so you are and I'll get you a four foot by four foot area surrounding that leak so four foot by four foot is kind of the the size of an area that a plumber is gonna need to actually escalate you know two to four feet deep to perform the repair so that's kind of our margin of error I I do my best to get it you know bowls I dead center but they have to dig up your yard exactly that's exactly that's accurate I mean for for about four foot because you're right they have to dig down the gotta have room to get down in there to do yeah I'm not gonna deal with the postal there're so X. four foot by four foot is is you know it's it's within the you know the winds of okay it's acceptable okay that's good so you said that all of your market and then the plumber can come in and do the repairs Christian right so they'll usually call like before they come out do the repair they'll call the one call service to make sure all utilities are located in the former contractor or excavate the area there's any issues once you get down there they have all the tech cell phones the customer always has their cell phone on your business card yeah they're told to call the tech first and then call the office got it you just doing this to this is Pete with all matters carried in nine seven three of them so do you guys I guess the question is because a lot of this is like I know it can be a panic attack and are coming out it's like so peace of mind you have plumbers that you recommend that you work with you know do good work yes we do okay suck thank you we've worked with for twenty plus years okay so you you can give them the referrals they can contact them and get the right good okay all right let's move over to irrigation systems accurate at time of the year guys and I know a lot of you guys water your plants and lawn and things like that so John the irrigation system comes off the main line correct most typically yes okay and so like water in irrigation what are some areas where my leak what are some of the components and irrigation system that could cause an issue so what we test is from the double check which you most houses because it's a required you have a back flow preventer so that'll do you have a water line have a tea and it'll come to your backflow preventers and from there it becomes your occasion after that supply we test up from that back flow preventer to the lead tronic

The Deadly Fight To Protect Brazil's Amazon
"For Brazilians working to preserve the Amazon rainforest how far they'd go to combat climate change is a serious question deforestation is up sharply in part because of the surge in fires this year many of those fires are set by criminal groups stealing land as NPR's Philip Reeve's reports Brazil protecting the forest often falls too courageous individuals willing to risk their lives people of the rainforest holding a meeting in women and children and shorts and flip flops a sitting inside a wooden pavilion clearing among the trees they're here to talk about routine forest stuff jumbles about the timetable of the ferry on the nearby they discussed who's going to use the communal tractor the relaxed mood is deceptive. Shuo proposer as president of the residents association that called this meeting ethical when you get more details bother Barbosa people here actually deeply worried we're in the Amazon's western part in the Brazilian state of actually people around here are mostly subsistence farmers and rubber tappers who rely on the forest for their livelihoods words just reached them that their neighbors a few miles away are illegally setting fires to clear land for cattle a major issue for that's disturbing setback especially for activists who risked their lives defending forest but Boza is fifty five he's been an environmental activist here all his adult life years ago one of his fellow activists was shot dead by legal ranches now as forestation surges bubble believes people protecting the forest face a growing threat he's not alone I think it's become significantly more date interest.

Rape accusations against Lauer ensnares NBC management
"Do you have a Matt Lauer impression we need that because we just mentioned this story in a covered on the today show because it's coming out in road pharaoh's book and it was you know at least part of it released the variety overnight NBC news got it they covered on the today show that while the accuser the got him fired two seven of rape I don't even know if I want to say it exactly what the terminology is basically just called the Kobe I guess I don't know so you know what we're talking a lot worse said coldly my day job Lee so the accusing it off I'm trying to keep it I don't know if you recall that family friendly but in a coma so the so the accusation their their experience and I think Jamie it's it's it does kind of seem like a lot of people have the initial reaction of whoa okay this takes it to a different level absolutely comes to Matt Lauer is also see consensual right well Matt Lauer comes out with a statement today and it is scorched earth and I think I I honestly it this is probably you this is one of the very few times others say that that someone who has stood accused of something like this this one of the few times they've been able to put out a statement that has almost totally change my mind wow I is so Matt Lauer puts out this lady statement this morning saying look I've been quiet through this whole thing it's clear that was a mistake first of all he says I should have known that I should have spoken up and defended myself when there were the stories about me having a locking mechanism underneath my desk that would love to work yeah because that didn't exist at NBC news actually confirmed he had no such locking mechanism at his desk so then he says look I I I I've been trying to protect my kids I don't want them to be affected by all of this he says I've admitted that it had affairs and Brooke novels is the one with this particular accusation he says yeah the affair that we had started in Sochi very late at night in a hotel room he admits they engaged in what you call it the Kobe there was among other things he said there were some other stuff going on in the bedroom as well though there was it was a it was a lengthy affair and then that affair actually went on when they got back to New York he said but yeah I texted I called or she called me we met up for drinks she came to my apartment he says about the power dynamics saying she didn't work for me she worked for Meredith Vieira because I I had no control over her career and then this is were really get scorched earth he says I admit I ended the affair poorly I simply stopped communicating with her brother continue to reach out she admitted to NBC at the time she filed her complaint that she called me late at night while I was home with my family in an effort to re kindle the affair but I tend to to go back to my life and pretend as if nothing had happened I understand how that must have made her feel he was desperate in other words you don't however being upset or having second thoughts does not give anyone the right to make false accusations years later about an affair in which they fully and willfully participated and many breaks down his story I mean seriously this is the cliff notes version that I'm giving you breaks down her story says it's filled with contradictions declines our first encounter was an assault yet she actively participated in arranging future meetings maybe in my apartment on multiple occasions she says I was the one pursuing the relationship what yet once it was over she was the one calling me asking to rekindle it she says she felt pressured to continue the affair because I had control over her career but she did not work for me gin work for the today show or NBC news she said she wanted to remain anonymous yet she was reportedly trying to sell a book within a year after filing her complaint she said she just wanted NBC to do the right thing yet she sought a monetary payment and two years after I was fired she is stepping forward to do more damage he says I had no desire to write this but I had no choice for two years the women with whom I had extramarital relationships have abandoned shared responsibility and instead it shielded themselves from blame behind false allegations they have avoided having to look a boyfriend husband or child in the eye and say I cheated all they have done enormous damage in the process and I will no longer provide them the shelter of my silence this is just chapter one then okay so as you said earlier David change your mind yes because it's a totally different dynamic and again it goes back to two separate stories and you got no proof either way yeah now if he's got texts that's different well I think he's not putting that out there if he doesn't have the receipts that that at least show I mean you you're never going to be able to prove one way or the other whatever happened in Sochi you're never gonna be able to prove one way or the other whether or not it was an assault or or consensual because only two people now yeah for sure but I think a reasonable person would be able to read text messages or see a call log somewhere where she was calling him and say okay that was consensual that would appear to be consensual to a lot of people yes and if okay this again as code there may have been one acts say among the many that she regrets but if she didn't text back and continues the affair it doesn't make any sense you know what I'm saying now to say that I don't know man it yeah I'll just leave it at this it paints a completely different picture and it also would suggest that NBC yet just fired him because they knew the pressure was coming in it was the me too moment all right I also do have to wonder something can you tell me maybe I just miss this I had no idea that that particular accuser didn't work on the today show was that common knowledge I just missed it I don't remember that either I thought it was someone that was on staff because they talked about the power dynamic at least somebody who worked in BC news and she did right apparently according to

"You a jam? And then what does it take to come back after that? What would you coach somebody on if you were coaching somebody through a tough time? You know, I mean only through my own experiences is that like a so Chee, obviously, it was one of the biggest upsets in my career my life, and I'm sitting there, and like once the tears and everything dried up, I was like I'm going to turn this into the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. He may. I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna let this moment. Define these other times in my life. I've ripped through my pass. I'm like man, I didn't actually win that until I lost before. And you know what? After this. Heart condition in you know, now, I'm a sports star. You know, what I mean like all these things in my life. And I'm like this. I'm going to make this the greatest thing that's happened. And so I really got right with myself, which I didn't you you lift weights to build muscles. You do you eat this food to feel this way? But to get your mind, right? Was something. I'd never really approached. I had a bunch of different books. I was reading things and it really really helped get me on that right path. But I made that decision, you know. And I think that's I think for people to to realize it understand is it's all up to you. Especially like when I go to a competition. And I and I lose. I'm stoked. I'm like great. You know? I if I show up and win I'm like, okay. I'm exactly where I need to be on right on right on the track. I'm going if I lose I got this perfect. Crystal picture of where I need to be. Wow. You know what? I mean, if you approach it that way, you can ever really lose. There's no mistakes unless you if you learn from them, and so I kind of like go through it. And so that's why all that kind of like soul searching and stuff happened after so Chee bring me back. But you gotta really clearly define what you want in the things that kind of like brought you to this path to like like, I mentioned the. You know, this cut on my face. You know, I'm never going to do that again. And I waited till the pristine time to do it. And so it's like actually learning from those mistakes. Not just kind of like saying. Yeah learned I won't do that again. But really learning from that mistake and going forward because it's a part of you now. But yeah, that's kind of like it's making is making that choice. I'd say so we've talked this week about when people wanna make a change. The most important thing is to make that decision station. The decision of what it's going to mean to you not letting the world defined what it means you decide what's coming us. Great. But then a second step for us as conditioning ourselves. So that we execute the third is putting a system in place. So that you can do what you did. Which is finally let go and let your unconscious takeover happened. Once you're there, totally that's wild. So you know, you mentioned the next Olympics and things like that. I'm like God. I don't even listen to the stuff on the on the television. Because so what I feel inside like feel. I got it in me. Then I got it. In me. It's kind of like, I know the feeling of Sochi trying to kick the dead horse and get myself to this point, and it just didn't work. But if I feel it inside now, I can go do it.
