As Catastrophic Wildfires Burn, Australians Ask How to Rebuild
"Going to head to Australia today. Where an unprecedented wildfire season continues to menace S.? The country more than twenty people have died. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and millions of animals have been killed although the cost of the damage is still oh being tallied. The fires are threatening to upend the way people live well into the future to find out more. I rang up our Australia and New Zealand Bureau. Chief David winning running so David Walk me through where things currently stand. How unprecedented are the fires? So the fires have been through more than six chameleon hectares of land that is by phone away the the largest devastation that we've seen from Bouchon in terms of lives lost thankfully Kelly. This isn't as big as the Black Saturday. Bushfires a two thousand nine hundred seventy three people lost their lives in a single afternoon oversee when you have devastation on the scale you're looking at a very long recovery effort industries such as tourism will take time to macabre because many people would go to Townsville St landscape what they will encounter now landscape that you would typically say it on the front line of a war zone even just trees and buildings gutted. Yeah we've got the slide show up on our website and I've been looking at the images. The sad burned koalas the apocalyptic skies. It seems like it's another world exactly you know an particularly agricultural industries. I mean if you've got an apple blue-chip for example. It takes five years for an apple tree to get to a point where it's productive you know if you have a pine plantation and you rely on on on Kimba for your industry well that takes even longer. There's GonNa be no quick fix for this Sumani will be Australian government has promised two billion Australian dollars switches the equivalent of one point four billion. US dollars to aid the recovery effort. That's an initial sum payable over two years and they've signaled that there's more money available as needed now. These fires started much earlier than they normally do in the typical fire season months earlier in fact. Do we know what happened. Eastern Australia Elliott has experienced a three year drought last year was the hottest on record and you know the the conditions of combined to create the basis full will to break out climate change. I believe in my opinion is played. A part of the individual fires may even have been started through awesome. But it's definitely. The case of this landscape was tinder. Dry going into what we call here. The bourgeois season so is the worst over nerve the peak for season to the end of February. Still at least one and a half months to go You mentioned and climate change earlier. Hasn't Prime Minister Scott Morrison been criticized for his stance on climate change. Mr Morrison's Party represents Abboud range of communities and they include mining areas eastern Australia this one of the major hops coal mining in the world and you his policy has sought to balance the interests of farming communities mining communities in the constituencies that he also that presents yesterday when he announced the big recovery found he was all set. You know do you intend to change your policy on on climate. And he said that's not my focus right now. My focus is on on dealing with a bushfire crisis. He has however stressed his commitments to limiting carbon emissions. That Australia's May as part of the Kiet. Political so I think when the focus of the cavalry effort develops I think when morpheus get extinguished hold onto control troll. The pressure will miss the Morrison to adapt his climate policy with inquiries. I know the cost is still being calculated We have some data that says Australia's has insurance council says the two hundred sixty million dollars worth of claims have already been filed. But what is the sense of how these fires could impact life in in Australia. Going forward. You full straight as Australians themselves. You know these are the sort of existential questions. Do they feel safe going camping. Do they feel you'll save going at it in the Wilderness and for the communities that live out that initial houses in a rural area. Do you feel safe. And how valuable is your property now which you find by full of it and why would you go. Would you go into a city many of weight. Cities like Sydney and Melbourne already a congested with strain services. Assay you allowed to bat and and and these are the sort of existential questions that feel. Australians will have to answer guy food
2020 Golden Globes: Winners and Losers
"This is the big picture a conversation show about the seventy seven. Th annual golden in global wards. Amanda here we are once more. We think we know what we're talking about. Enter these things with great confidence even knowing that the Golden Globe boards are famous famously. wonky messy goofy silly stupid and they have shocked us once more. Nineteen eighteen seventeen has won best drama. which I don't think either one of US predicted we in fact you did not pick that I think we thought all four of the other contenders had a good story story? I I do want to say you and I washed together and you. I believe pitched picked joker on our podcast Dixie Irishman. And at one point you shared with me that your wife was going with marriage story and and we watched a two popes commercial and I was like well it could be two popes and you said you. We've now talked about the possibility party of four of the five winners which means it'll probably be nineteen seventeen now. Look you and I are very lucky to have these jobs. We are but I do not claim to know anything like. I'm just going to put this on the table here. I don't I don't know anything. I know people who knows stuff but I don't know anything and this is an example of having any confidence about doing any of this stuff. I thought a lot of Adam. Sandler's character from uncut gems. When that moment happening where I was like this is what must be like to be an awful gambler? I think I went like four for fourteen tonight. Some brutal number. I think you and I are luckily tied at four hundred fourteen. I just WanNa remind you that I very confidently set on the podcast. I I think I got four wrong. That's true and I thought that would have been impressive. It's only get four rowing and four wrong would have been absolutely extraordinary. You would have been going straight to the damn. Am Bank on forum is tough interesting. Telecast tonight I actually thought it was quite a dull show for most of it. There were some head-scratching picks. There were some entertaining speeches. Let's let's we'll get back to nineteen seventeen and all the races. We'll go through race by race but before we do that. Let's just talk. About the telecast itself Ricky Gervais returned earned as the host fifth time he brought a a unique energy the show this year an energy I would describe as fuck all. He really did not seem to care. Think he literally did describe it as that multiple times when he told the audience to go fuck themselves. He was mercilessly bleeped. Throughout out the night He really had the attitude of a person who would be happy to be anywhere else but at this award show I'll be honest. I know it's not cool to set kind kind of enjoyed it you did I. I kind of enjoyed it not because I thought he was funny or useful but just because it was different. I've never really seen that before. There was a train wreck vibe to it you. You kept cackling at like you. Would just he would say something and it would be silent and then and then you would react to the fact that nothing was happening but him just like melting down. I love the idea of people who work at network or a famous person in the audience watching just like quietly recoiling at everything happening onstage on stage. There's something kind of joker ask about that and I I thought your race was kind of like fake provocative. Most of the night and a lot of the jokes. We're kind of like ooh look at me but not actually with anything deep to say about anything which is a lot of his humor in the last five to ten years but he definitely succeeded in bringing just the sheer shear nihilism to the performance. Yeah and I thought that was the one thing that was a mistake. I don't really care about Ricky Gervais xl. I didn't think he was very funny but I wasn't offended ended. My main thought process there is monologue was like oh I really don't like comedy like I don't like the active comedy or anyone who thinks that they're a comedian. It's just like not for me so you know. Yeah that's that's how I spent my time tonight but bio for you by the way comedy. Not For me. It's really not just don't care. I don't think it's funny but I agree that the show is boring and it felt like purposeless a lot of the time and some of that you remarked as we were watching all the commercials for like whatever weird. NBC Plane Show. They were debut and it would say when it was airing on NBC would say like an streaming the next day and there were commercials for Peacock. Doc and Amazon and ethics and all of the platforms and it was just very clear that this is a network. TV like dying right in front of our eyes yes it was a stegosaurus. Soroush slowly falling to its dinosaur needs so hiring someone to stand up on stage and be like this doesn't matter on the one on hand it's true it really doesn't. It's very putting his finger on the truth of the thing but you know they're still trying to get people to watch the show for three hours in order to cover. The advertising is and and to save their network and it I just did. Your Vase just reminded me of like this. Like this is an outdated form like. This actually has no relevance it didn't make me feel feel bad about committing my time to it though for some reason maybe that's just a six drain of my personality. But I I never felt like well I do. Think the show at Townsville purposeless. I didn't think think that his like ruthlessly blase approach to everything. I I just I. I liked it. There was. It was not the same old like back patty glad handing and and also the same Tina fey and amy poehler ask like were above it but will also do the show Biz dance thing you know that. That was raised a characteristic of their three times hosting. I think all of which were pretty fantastic. I I love them as hosts but the tonality of their hosting was always like. Isn't this stupid but also I will perform for it. This was the first time I ever saw anybody in this job. Go like fuck it. I don't care yeah I guess that's interesting as a one one time thing. I don't think you can ever do it again. Right couldn't run it back. Yeah and he swore up and down that he would not be back. I just I understand that reaction. I spent the whole time being like I'm being reminded so many different ways that I have complete control over what I want to watch now and what I content I want to take in and I just. I really really don't need to be listening to ricky surveys right now. which is now because she was defending me or because he was spectacularly unfunny? I was like I don't need this it's a great point I wonder how what what percentage of humans who are watching television. I chose actively to just throw on a streaming service instead of watch this award. Show which is what they would have done. Yeah say fifteen years ago to fascinating thing anything else else to say about your vase. I mean he really just gave his monologue and then came out. And kinda deep side his way through a couple of introductions and that was really the whole show that is true I they will say that the only kind of provocation that I was like I'll give him credit for or the I will remember is every time he would just yell back at the audience. Yes you did it not me. Shades of Amanda hosting play. Yeah it was. It was unusual. I look forward to the future hosts of the Golden Globes. I think we have now served our ricky surveys time. Yes other notable things things from this. TV Show Ellen was was fitted with a with a big old tribute. The Carol Burnett Award which is now an annual award which I guess last year was the first year Carol Burnett won this award and It was interesting I I think on the one hand Ellen. Degeneres is a hugely important figure socially because when she came out that sort of change changed the perception for a lot of people of the gay lifestyle in America and what a celebrity could be in the future. Twenty years of career has been much more about being a extremely extremely rich famous person and posting talk show and I couldn't help but notice an American Express logo in the middle of the montage that to her that did happen and a career highlight montage included her being an American Express commercial. That seemed like Perhaps a subtle metaphor to a lot of the things happening in such an image is to Ellen's career. Yes I agree with that. I will say I thought they keep Mckinnon speech to her was very moving and funny. That was the one time I was like. Oh I do like comedy and and you can see Ellen. Being moved by that. And and that's why she was on the stage. I think I think that's the reason that they can give her the award. Or that's that's the stated reason and then it is also because she's just been on. TV for seven years like printing money for various people. Yeah you the Hollywood. Foreign Press gives out a lot of awards on the night they give out awards to actors and actresses and writers and directors and even composers and Ellen doesn't really do any of those things. She hosts a TV show but there is no best variety show category so she used to be on the Sitcom but that it was a long time ago. Why why was Ellen at the Golden Globes because people who would not otherwise watch the Golden Globes like Ellen and they watch every day on TV and they watched the clips on answering? I gotTa tell you on the instagram explore tab like an interview with someone POPs up. I'll watch that. I'll watch that stuff steph. Every time I wash it into minute increments you know. I also have a lot of thoughts about Ellen's Politics in the last ten years that I'll keep to myself so but but I think did they give her the award because it brings a different audience. Let me ask you this. Where was Dakota Johnson? That's what I want great question that is so good for those of you. Who Don't know there's a legendary moment on the Ellen Show in which she interviewed Dakota Johnson to Johnson Mentioned that she was having a Christmas party. And Ellen said where's my invitation to send it to you. And she said I never got got it. And then they had a bit of a showdown and I think Dakota came out on the other side of that one. The champion is she did because Allen had been invited I believe it to her birthday party. Ellen was out of town and do you know where L.. It was the weekend of Dakota Johnsons Birthday Party. I was she in Amarillo. Texas with George. Yes she was there you go so yeah Ellen was celebrated. That was fine. I tend to enjoy these lifetime. Achievement awards I think one of the sadnesses sadnesses of where the Oscars now is. Because you know no offense but demons like you complain about how long the show is and so we have to lose things. He's like a lifetime. Achievement awards out of the Oscars which gets into the governor's awards which happened months ahead of time. And we don't get to hear about the great works of I don't know Sidney Lumet or Sidney Poitier gay or other great men named Sydney and unfortunately we don't see that at the Oscars we do see it at the Globes and we saw another great tribute to another great great man not named Sydney. This man is named Tom's names. Tom Hanks this was a this was lovely. I was very moved by it. I'm just moving past all the slander. We'll relitigate the Oscars for two and a half hour. Make them you know. Don't link continuous. Shot make a good TV show making good TV. Show that people WANNA watch all the way to save movies. It's the only way to save TV. It's the only way to save like I don't know celebrities and rooms together just make TV. Show anyway. I thought the time hanks was good TV. Because you know who's Great Tom. BUGGING HANGS AMERICA'S SWEETHEART GETS UP. There starts crying two seconds because his family sitting in the wrought Edison because he was on. I think he's a nice person. And he was like someone had fed him Hypno- and he was he was fading out and then he just goes goes into like your uncle who knows a lot about making movies and wants to give you advice mode. It was great told you all about the gate. Yeah the gate cleans. The closing properly is a I also just watching the montage. I just pointed out to me I just really love Tom. Hanks his work and also I was thinking about our podcast and the hall of fame. And I'm really really mad that I caved on. You've got mail. I should have put it in over sleepless in Seattle. I'm just saying that now. I'd like to apologize to the many people who reach out to let me know that they would have supported. Did that decision. I let you guys down. I will say I have not thought about that one. Since can I have thought frequently about how we left Saving Private Ryan off. which was you? It was my fault but I was reminded instantaneously upon that podcast publishing. In fact that podcast went live and I felt like three seconds later. People were like where saving private private Ryan. Even though they had not listened to it we next it saving private Ryan did make an appearance in this montage Tom Hanks's made like thirty bad movies. And it doesn't matter because his good movies are so good in so meaningful to people and his funkier sincere just general good guy nece makes people feel good and he happened to be in a good movie this year which is very helpful. He did not win unfortunately though he was nominated for best supporting actor for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood I thought it was great. I thought you know. That's not really surprising. He he is professionally decent and he seemed like a good person. He was very happy to have his family there. He was very happy to pay a lot of respect to Martin. Scorsese I believe. He gestured towards him three times during his speech which was adorable. You know I just. I wish that there were actually more things like yes. I like to be reminded of the people I like making these movies. That's the whole point of these award. Shows it's not to like breakdown whether nineteen seventeen is going to win at the Oscars like that's rusted. Do the awards shows themselves are to celebrate the great people in the great stuff. I still like that.

"townsville" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"That's right. Which gets the gist of what it? Yeah. You know? But not not the recent greatest hits. Instead today, we are exploring the recent misadventures of WikiLeaks, founder the. Infamous and somewhat targe area and looking Julian Assange. He is a little I don't wanna body. Shame. I think I think target Syrians, really cool. But he looks like he's more. Like, the kind of like, platinum blonde. Blue eyed, kind of I bright a little bit of it. It's changed. It's changed gently. Yeah. Being grounded for years, we'll do that. But Julian Assange, this name is familiar to us. If you're listening to this show, you has almost certainly not the first time you've heard this name. But let's learn a little bit about the guy behind the moniker. Who is Julian Assange will for that. We have to go all the way back to nineteen seventy one to a place called Townsville Australia, isn't that where a chemical x was created in created the power puff girls. Oh my goodness. Mayor of Townsville ring any bells because of my lack of power puff information. I will say yes. And I appreciate you taking my word for it. But this is a different Townsville. Well is carrying in Townsville in nineteen seventy-one Julian Assange was birthed as a baby came into this world, and he didn't have any documents with him. But he was given his first documents very soon after that proving that he was in fact born and this is a gentleman who grew up he really enjoyed computers. He was good at them. He ended up hacking into the databases of several organizations that we would consider high-profile sure. Corporations countries governments in two thousand six he said, you know, I should take this to a global scale, an international scale. I should take what I'm doing by myself and open it to the world. So he began work on what we call WikiLeaks today. And surprisingly he pulled it off enjoyed a brief shining moment in the spotlight was he a hero speaking truth to power a coward endangering lives across the planet. A straight up megalomaniac, he was portrayed as all of these and more in the media. And he earned the coveted time magazine's person of the year title in twenty ten also let's not forget the person of the year isn't necessarily an accolade. It's a compliment. This means you shook some stuff up for better or worse. Well, yeah. And that's exactly what he was doing. He you know, that speaking truth to power. I don't know if I necessarily believe that. But I think all of us had moments where the actions of Julian Assange were so striking of, you know, hacking into the places that were hacked, or, you know, leaking information that was given to them that really spoke to bad things that were happening within big organizations. And I think that's why time you're just what we're talking about. That's why time did it because it was so earth shaking of for sure. I mean, genuinely shut the foundations. Yeah. And he was loved and feared I think is the right way to put it, right, right? He was indeed the thing is WikiLeaks and Assange were dogged by criticism controversy and conspiracy theories pretty much since their inception. People would right. To us all these years ago and say, well, who do you think really in charge of WikiLeaks? Russia is at the CIA is you know, massad or some other organization, and how impartial are they not very as we come to find. But two thousand ten Rosenfeld like some target nNcholas. I guess you flew too close to the son of the mass media and classified information from governments and businesses twenty ten is the year. Everything started to go wrong for Julian Assange, he ended up seeking asylum in Ecuador, technically Ecuador, here's how it went down. We've got a time line. I guess we could call it. How to dodge the law and Ecuador with an asterik. Yep. I don't think he's actually been to the country of Ecuador. Well, it did technically.

"Climate change. Not the catastrophic floods such as we saw in Townsville in February nor the big swells of Victoria this week. But the steady constant rise of little floods and be costs climate change really is having impacts that. We're seeing now, and we have a clear recognition that most of the impacts of climate change are packaged in extreme of ants often catastrophic extremes like hurricane Harvey and Houston into hundred seventeen or the horrifying campfire that destroyed the town of paradise in California just a couple of months ago. But we're also seeing increasing evidence that climate change impacts can be packaged in what you might call micro extremes. And that was the focus of this study, many areas coastal areas in the US were built this close to see levels possible the facilitate the inter. Reaction between humans and the ocean. But it's a C has risen that closeness to the ocean as transition from being an asset to being potentially ally ability. There was a recent study that looked at twenty seven coastal communities in the US and found that back in the nineteen fifties. Those communities were influenced by high tide flooding Notre of two days per year by the first decade of the century that had increased to something over eleven days per year. Another recent study concluded that they're almost two hundred communities in the US that will experience high tide flooding more than twenty five days year by twenty thirty five given this evidence we were curious about whether this kind of micro extreme has really on make him backs. So we ended up Another recent study concluded that they're almost two hundred communities in the US that will experience high tide flooding more than twenty five days year by twenty thirty five given this evidence we were curious about whether this kind of micro extreme has really on make him backs. So we ended up focusing on the community of Annapolis Maryland, which is very close to sea level historic waterfront, and based on the tide gauge has sea levels that rise. Above define nuisance. Flood level many times per year in two thousand seventeen it was sixty three occurrences per year. And the question of we wanted to address in this study is whether high tide flooding is really just a nuisance or whether it's having really impacts on real people and real economies as an MBA candidate. I wanted to bring this lens to our work. And so we were particularly interested in how businesses were being impacted or affected by high tide flooding and Annapolis became a great choice for this study. It's historic mostly tourist friendly. Downtown is known to flood regularly. The high local rate of sea level rise means those floods have quickly become more present and the local government were collaborative and motivated to work with us throughout this process. And so if you've never been to an apples, let me describe a bit of the scene, so it has this stork downtown on a hill. Overlooking the Chesapeake Bay and its tribute. Aries at the bottom of that hill is city dock home to about fifteen mostly tourist oriented businesses. And at the center of those businesses lies a parking lot. We found government officials were intimately aware of the flooding dynamics and concerned for president impact on the community with the business owners and operators. We found that when we asked

Political Challenges Facing Autonomous Cars
"To the technological challenges of bringing autonomous vehicles to the road. Self-driving cars are also facing a lot of political backlash joining us now via Skype from Detroit to explain is Wall Street Journal reporter, Mike Elias. Mike just this past March an Uber self driving car struck and killed a pedestrian in Arizona where the company has been testing. It's a Thomas vehicles has that changed the political climate around self driving cars, I think it has. I think for the last several years you've seen at the city and state level. Officials sort of falling all over themselves to try to get Atanas vehicle developers to test in their town or their state, you know, for investment reasons jobs, and they just wanna see see be seen as sort of tech forward. But I think in the last year, and I think probably the Uber fatality detriment metality back in March was probably a chilling effect that a lot of cities now, and there's still plenty who you know, are welcoming this. Technology. But there's there's some that have become, you know, almost hostile to the idea of having it in their towns, and then others who say, well, you know, we want we want you to come in. But it has to be on on our terms. So let's talk about some of those places where self driving cars are facing political roadblocks, including here in New York and in Chicago in Pittsburgh as well local officials are raising concerns. What are you hearing New Yorker, Chicago are good examples of of a place? That's where the technology is kinda got the chilly reception in New York. General Motors about a year ago said that they were going to be the first ones to test in the state a state law was passed that allowed her testing. But then when they went to do they were supposed to deploy testing in Manhattan in early twenty eighteen and that fell through because the mayor mayor de Blasio has expressed big safety concerns around having this technology on, you know, the busy streets of Manhattan in so GM has had to delay their plans, and it doesn't look like there. Gonna be testing. They're anytime soon Chicago's made similar comments the head of their transportation committee in the city council's adamantly opposed to to testing doesn't mean it won't ever happen. But here's two of the biggest cities in the country that are are just because so powerful politicians come out and say and don't really like the idea this. It's hampering what the companies want to do. So I think it's just it shows you that even if they get the technology, right, which is a whole nother, which is a whole 'nother matter we can talk about they still may have trouble getting into these biggest markets in the country and in major cities too. There's the added problem of congestion how much is that factoring into local officials concerns adding to traffic that's already heavy in most of these places. Right. I think what you're seeing is the safety is one is one big concern. But the other is the city's just saying, hey, you know, you need to we need to work together. I want this technology is going to look like it can't just be so cool innovation that you bring into our town. And. Plopping on the road. And see what happens. And Pittsburgh's a good example of this. Pittsburgh is they're welcoming to Townsville could technology. They're one of the pioneers. Carnegie Mellon in the robotics program is a reason why we seen they've been testing there as long as anybody. But just in the last year they've gotten much more vocal about. Okay. How is this going to benefit us is it can improve congestion are low income residents could benefit from this. You know, is it going to improve the pollution are you going to be deploying electric vehicles? So cities are kind of finding their voice on this. And and understanding that this technology may be a ways off, but it's coming and we need to be ready for it. So it works for us.
