"They will add fifteen additional days of learning for the coming school year and they will be one hundred percent. In-person this is after the results of the bad star tests. H district leader said. The decision is based on a recent report about how education suffered during the pandemic quote h. Isd is aware and concerned about the learning loss that has resulted statewide from educational challenges caused by the pandemic. The recent star test results provide us an opportunity to address. Student academic needs and utilize resources utilize resources. That's such consultant. Speak any time. You hear the word utilized. Just replace it with us every time. There's no reason to say utilized because you've got a phd in education that nobody respects to regain learning h. i. s. d. is adding fifteen additional days of instruction and returning to one hundred percent in person instruction in the fall. We expect this will produce. Better student outcomes really well. Gosh if only you done that. Last year additionally we are formulating plans. That will mitigate students lost time and improve educational performance. You don't say they're wrong every time there wrong. Every time they banned hydroxy chloroquine turns out. It was useful. They said zinc had no effect turns out. It was incredibly important. How many of you remember that. It was march or april but last year was a long year so it all runs together. I had an old man on. He was a Doctor was the md ph phd from some school in detroit. I can't remember which one and he was indian or from india. His wife was from india thick accent. And he was a zinc proponent in for over twenty years he had been writing about zinc. And i think he was ninety or eighty nine. You remember this. Ramon use an old old fellow. Well he had he had contracted the covert and he was already a big zinc proponent and he increased his dosage and he came through with flying colors and some in the media were paying attention to his case. Now of course we know that. Zeke is an important component to the cocktail of treating. Hopefully avoiding and intriguing. This chinese weapon of war called kovin that they unleashed upon us but that was early on well. He was dismissed and in fact derided by some who said that was ridiculous. I'm all for capitalism. But i think the role that big pharma has played in our lives and more importantly in the dissemination of information is dangerous. Big pharma had their teeth into the democrat party in into major organizations that were that were issuing opinions and edicts on this and as dr stella emmanuel. You remember dr manual. She's from nigeria. She's the one that spoke in washington. Dc and said that there are treatments available that for most people will suffice. That cost twenty dollars or less but big pharma doesn't want that fao. She doesn't want that because big pharma gives him his grants that he gets to travel. The world on you see low cost easily accessible. Healthcare options are not preferred. Because big pharma doesn't get rich on them and that's the reality in. This was a case of that. There are others. that's not to say that there are not drugs that only big pharma produces and you can't go foraging in the forest and find a replacement it is to say that there are many alternate options to what we spend a lot of money on many many many options to what we spend a lot of money on that are natural homeopathic That are compounded by individuals with phd's rather than md's that aren't part of the major clinical trials of the major pharmaceutical companies. That are easily available. Dr stella emmanuel if you remember we had her own several times the point that look viruses are viruses. We've been treating viruses in africa for a very long time in we've been treating them with things like hydroxy chloroquine z. In magnesium magnesium plug yet. Ramon be careful because you've had that member you had that will you know. But they were saying that the media the democrats the health. Cabal the health swamp of thou- at all that this was you know no no no. No trump is saying you should drink bleach. You're trying to kill everybody. You need to wait. 'til big pharma has the solution. Well they also told us she had to close the schools. Now when the kids weren't the problem well now they're having to come around and say well we're going to add more days to try to make up for how we screwed up before it's again and again and again and again that they get it wrong again and and again and again that they get it wrong. It's it's almost as if there's a pattern to the stuff. Do you notice that. It is almost as if there is a pattern. We were discussing the death of the creator of cops. John langley who died a few days ago of a heart attack out on one of these off road races and that made us think about house. Bill fifty four which was named anglers law for a man in austin who died in police custody after a crew from a and as live. Pd filmed his arrest. Well this thing passed and now texas is they say the first state in america that will no longer allow reality tv filming of policing i could see why the democrats don't want reality. Tv filming of policing do you know why because democrats want you to believe that cops are bad guys. They want you to believe that. George floyd is deserving of a statue. He was a great great man. We'll look at his record. They want you to believe that. Michael brown was gentle giant sweet boy who having just assaulted a little tiny indian convenience store owner tried to kill a police officer and left. Officer darren wilson but with no choice but to kill him and on and on and on they always want you to believe that the people who try to kill the cops the people who resist the people who have thin all overdoses.

"A lot of people last about that and general and In order for both the genre that continue and for them to continue doing what they're doing that's something that should be talked about and kind of publicized and anti put out there and you episodes about certain instruments as well i do. I do dan Let's see i applaud. I'm not contra bassoon with my friend nicole who's amazing and i contacted her and i said you know. The controversy is a really weird instrument and she was like. Yeah as you want me to talk about it. It's at of course. I do and she news. I mean she's she's a wonderful performer. She's a composer herself. Actually and she gave me such a great rundown of contra bassoon in i got to go in from a distance in record record her sound as well and i it was fascinating just to like be. 'cause i've heard contributions playing in orchestras. The kind of always like over there are on the other side of the room. And so i i. That was my first chance to get a really good close up. Look so i was learning a lot. And i mean i have you know. It's it's really cool. That i've i've got two degrees in music and i'm still learning so much. Just papers you south. That was that was fascinating. So how was the contra bassoon Different from a regular soon. Yeah so the regular bassoon is it's that how did she put it. She said some sort of tube that you see up orchestras right. Looks like a. I don't know giants cigar or something and and the kosh assume is pitched much lower and it's much bigger and it kind of looks as kind of shaped like giant ape clip is wet. Nicole says and so it requires you. You don't actually hold it. You set it on the floor can scoot yourself up to it and play it that way. and so it's a much much lower sound. And i love the way. That controversy are really caring for their craft. Because for a long time people use it as like comedic flatulent sounds and orchestras. That's kind you go to the concert pursuit for that. And it's fascinating because it's being used more award for really like musically satisfying things. I would imagine probably a very moody piece. Probably a good use of that. Oh yes oh yes. that's gonna really rumbling. To against down to the lowest part of its register the lowest notes that it can play. That's the kind of thing you like. Seal rattling and your sternum. It kind of makes the whole stage vibrate. It's great it's it's really button now. It's because people feel that well there's really not much don't need to know about classical music but you think something like the greatest movies that may that are made and there are those orchestral that are in their brain and they're not even thinking about it when they're probably uttering those words exactly i know at at and that's one of the things i try to make an argument. A lot of people believe that classical music is something that's already happened and it's no it's happening now it's presently hear new music being created all the time and movie music especially in a great way at a great example of Yeah how how classical music is is new and is on the forefront of what you know and You know and actually one of the greatest ways. If you like the music of the john williams who composed the themes just star wars indiana jones and superman and jaws at all bunch of other things. We could just left here. You can actually look back on certain pieces. And he's really referencing. A lot of pieces from the romantic era that already existed. I always tell my students. John lee says the best because he stole from her best kiss. He's taking his lifting some things in a sense and putting them because he knew that kind of sound go perfectly with the scenes of the movies. Yeah and it's also interesting when you think of the beatles. The producer that they worked with. George martin was a classical music guy. It makes a lotta sense. It makes a lot of the ear. Is there you know. And the ear and the training and yeah. Oh gosh we could talk about the beatles to. I mean that was because that was such a a specific in my mind refined sound of pop music but But yeah that makes a lotta sense. He would be there. I mean it's it's all integrated. What do you think can be done to make classical music. More accessible for the mass. That's a really great question. I think there's two things that have to happen. I think it has to happen at either. End of the pipeline. I think it's got to happen with the education when people are young and exposure when people are young for sure a lot of outreach to populations who maybe would not have the resources to dive into classical music you know underserved populations people of color and And their communities often. Don't get the same type of exposure that More perhaps white and were perhaps affluent communities get which is a big mistake in my mind like why not why not make that part of the curriculum everywhere and i know there are lots of really great organizations that are working to try and change that tide right away on the other end of it. I have always found it to be a really big divide in concerts when you've got an entire orchestra up on stage and they're dressed in like really fancy clothes accede os and the new the audience. And you know you come in you experience the same thing and then afterwards there's no integration of the people you know the audience doesn't talk to the musicians and musicians don't talk to the audience and some cases they just wanna get home like get at the job but newport symphony that. I'm the concert master for they. Do this They do this reception after every concert. And because of that. I've gotten to know so many patrons. And i've gotten to know so many people who asked me questions undergo. Wow this is great. I can't wait to come back to the next concert. That's feel like orchestras need. To foster is a complete experience that includes Some form of maybe education talking to the audience some form of networking. And you know. Having the people they experienced the same product from two different sides. And i think it's important to have a conversation about that about what that was like for each side to really experience it to its fullest and a lot of people are familiar with a lot of current game musicians to you. Know where if you say. Eddie van halen ninety percent of the people know who you're talking about but sure if you tell me like a a world class oboe player or flouted i'd be like well. Maybe i heard of them that they kind of different exposure. You are also it's kind of publicized to the media right and yeah and i'm not sure how to traverse that one. There's this wonderful composer. She's very famous. Actually she's won a pulitzer prize. If i'm not mistaken name's caroline shaw. She's written some wonderful works. Wonderful classical works. That i really admire She got kind of recently a certain sector twitter because she lay down some tracks for cagno. Us and so the sudden everybody's like oh my gosh. Who is this person on us albums and you can delve into that. It's all this caroline short. What else does she do.

What's the lowest? Well, you know, I've let me get it up here. I haven't really been playing much and this non playing time. I mean, there are to be virtuosos who can play as high as a As a trumpet.

Schools Work Around The Pandemic To Provide Holiday Concerts
"This is the time of year when many parents crowd into schools for a school holiday concert. Which is obviously not happening in most schools in 2020, so schools are adapting. Here's Peter Medlin of our member station. W N I J and DeKalb, Illinois, a course of kids belted out holiday favorites. Parents packed in an old stuffy gymnasium, jostling for shaky camera position to get the perfect Facebook video of their child in there Elf costume in the holiday concert. Not so much this year. Instead, some schools are getting creative in an effort to deliver some desperately needed holiday cheer. Mary Beth Kona is the principal at Spectrum, a small private school in Rockford, Illinois. Today they're filming the innovative Elves. Holiday show slash music video. He says. This year, there will be no sneaking out the back door after your kid's song ends in this, they're going to get a nice close up shot. Every kid's gonna get to be seen on the video multiple times that they can share with many family members. Like thousands of music teachers across the country, Super Tse's spent most of her time trying to teach remotely from our basement. Right now she's here with her students sporting a Santa Claus facemask and making this video you'll be the only time most of her students will be together this fall.

Their kids are gonna be recording themselves dancing at home and will be sliced into the final show with everyone else. Workarounds like this are happening everywhere. Maggie's Bradley has the National Association for Music Educators, which provides training for music teachers. And although the pandemic presents significant challenges for all educators, music instruction is particularly difficult were the ones that always want to be shoulder to shoulder to do things and celebrate, so it's been difficult? The students have missed it because they want to perform together. But also the teachers. Spotty WiFi make zoom band practice is really tough and sometimes confusing, but it goes beyond that. Pandemic continues to highlight inequities and education students without Internet access and schools that can't afford instruments to a student stuck with no tuba. That means pivoting to something else, like providing software so students can create their own beats and rhythms. And like this school, finding new ways to perform for an audience staying at home. Felix is 1/4 grader here who plays the Alto sax. It's a little crazy, but I mean, at least I get to see all my friends and flown my instrument.

Tuba Christmas l a dot com is our main website and there's a link there to 2020 this event, right? Yeah, next week. That's kind of fun. It's gonna be great fun. Great. I had something I wanted to share with you. I mentioned this. A while ago, Apple had a deal on the iTunes store for the extended editions of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. They were HD. Yep. And I kind of was a few months ago. And I thought, you know, I'm gonna I know that the four K versions coming out in December's and I thought, OK, either. I'm gonna be really stupid cause was 30 bucks for for the trilogy was cheap. Everybody really stupid and buy these and regret it in December, or I'm gonna be smart like a Fox because in the past Apple's been upgrading these for free. Get up. They upgraded him. Therefore K hdr Dolby vision. Now I have to say neither of the was Lord of the Rings wasn't shut for Cape Well shot film, probably right. It was probably shot on film, so it was scanned into four could be And then the hobbit, which came later might have been shot. I don't know whether they shot it on digital or not. Yeah, if they did, I'm sure they shot it in four cases. That would have been really stupid not to So Have. So now I'm looking at the Lord of the Rings. I actually watched it this morning just to check and yes, it's 14 B boy. I think it's very realistic like it's really clear, but you could see like you could see the actors blemishes and you could slip candles if he were a Gandalf's beard is attached itself to clear. You know it, Zapata Mu Remember back when H. D first was introduced? It was a two around 2000 and the newscasters were really concerned because you could see their makeup. And now it's even worse. Yeah. Remember when that happened. I was still doing a live with region. It was live with Regis and Kelly back then, and the makeup artist had acquired an airbrush. To play with that to play with the new style of makeup for high death that was required for high death. Yeah, and with four k that that problem is four times worse. Wow. Yeah, And yeah, I actually think that I was watching the Hobbit. It's my guess that they probably because it was shot in high frame rate. We shot in four k probably digital right on, but they knew that this was going to be an issue, so they're not really wearing a lot of makeup. Right. And so it's hyper realistic. It makes me feel like I like the old days of 24 frames a second with everything telling me you're not alone. Yeah, alone. I mean, angry when he shot uhm What was the Billy Lynn's long halftime time? Walk right? Right. He made a point of saying that he had his actors They were wearing no makeup. And they were shot very close up so that they filled the screen and, uh, Wow. Yeah. Wow. Personally, I admit I'm in the minority. I like that. Look, I think we'll get used to it frame right, well, get used to it. ASL long as you don't see the attachment of the beer. I mean, yeah, I feel like I also feel like the filmmakers after adjust. On dear will do things to make it more dreamy. Even though it's four k. They'll just lighting the lighting looks a little harsh of the big problem with Lord of the Rings. I'm watching the Hobbit band March into The last humble house, you know, and and it's mostly CG. You know, they're I know because of how they shoot these things. The bridge they're walking on statues. They're real, and then everything else is green. And there And when you watch it, maybe it's my my mind. But I really feel like there's a distinction between the real life stuff in the CG the computer generated backgrounds you could tell that could be depends on how well they do it. So this the standards are going to change, too. If you're gonna start doing this, it is very interesting question. Anyway. I'm glad I got before Kay. Wasn't Oh, yeah, it wasn't fooled by the No and I people are. I know it's not the greatest movie of all time. I think it's like The Wizard of Oz. It's just a movie that's live forever. Yeah, in your eye. I didn't find them to be that interesting movie wise know either, but they're they're They're classics. Nonetheless. I think the less sure all right. I mean, the hijack your segment. We got a couple minutes left. What did you want to talk about today? Mostly. I wanted to point out The big news this week, which is Warner Brothers, announcing their entire slate of 2021 movies are going to be released simultaneously in theaters and on HBO. Mac's gonna do a one month only. I presume they're gonna do charge the 20 bucks to rent it thing. Or not, I don't know. I haven't. I haven't seen any news on that because you're already paying for HBO, Max, but they don't want movie theater. The real risk, though, is that movie theater owners will say You're killing us here if they give it away on HBO bag, right? Yeah, it's a huge risk theater's air gonna hurt from this No question, but they're already hurting and even you know, most of 2021. I believe people are gonna be reluctant to go into the theater. I will be until I have a vaccine and a lot of people have a vaccine. Um, it's gonna be a problem. Personally, I'm happy to stream them. If you get this is an argument. It's good for you. It's an argument to get a nice home theater set up going. That's right. Exactly because what I really hope they don't do is do like Disney Plus And you pay for Disney. Plus and then they charged you 30 bucks to watch Mullah, right? And that was a flop. Apparently. I think they were unhappy with a take on that. HBO is saying to Mike Heiss HBO saying, No, it will be part of your charge. It'll be part of your subscription and movie theaters. Bay him, So you hit the roof.

So I agree with you 100% there. Now the airforce game. The thing that concerns me If you're back in air force is that they had a lot of players that I don't know what they called turn back. They call it the service academies where they could save their year. They had all five defensive starters that we're returning turned back for next year, so they're not playing this year. They're only down the 65 scholarship players. They do have an advantage over sandals and the fact that sandals he's had their practices disrupted. But the air Force took on Navy in the opener. So their defense look good because they know how to defend a wishbone here. They're taken on a pass attack with basically zero returning starters on the flipside of the coin. There forces offense is pretty good with his EKG, Daniels and channels they I think they're going to struggle to stop the run and the past as well. I like the over. It's only 61 62 a half.

"On this episode five minutes in Church history. Let's talk about a scientist Sir. Isaac Newton. He was born in sixteen forty three. He died in seventeen twenty seven he was actually born in the exact same year of the death of Galileo. He was born in originally humble circumstances. His father died three months before he was born in sixteen sixty one he went off to Cambridge. He had a grasp of Latin and a very curious mind. He would pass the time sketching clocks and windmills and other kinds of gadgets. Once he got to Cambridge he studied astronomy. This was the era of Copernicus and Kepler and of course he studied the classic Philosophers Aristotle and Plato. He kept his notebooks and in one of them. He wrote amicus Plato. Amicus Aristotle's Maga's Amici Veritas. Plato is my friend. Aristotle is my friend. Truth is my best friend. And he also let Cambridge embarked on studying mathematics. In fact he would come to the way in this field he is credited for inventing the study of Calculus as he called it the calculus of infant hassles and it was also while he was at Cambridge that he studied the motion of the moon and the planets and he recognized this force. That was acting on these planets orbit. He was discovering what would come to be called the law of gravity. He would go on to publish. His books is famous book in Seventeen. O four the book called optics and in There. He puts forth his theory of colors. A very interesting a young student in the colonies at the College of Connecticut. We know it as Yale. University would get a hold of Isaac Newton's book optics and he devoured it. This of course is Jonathan Edwards. And he wrote his own little scientific paper he called of light rays and this was all from. Reading Isaac Newton and Edwards draws this corollary from just being amazed at how the actual physical human eye processes light rays. This is what Edwards had to write hence the infinite art that was exercised in the formation of the eye that has given it such an exquisite sense that it should perceive the touch of those few rays of the least fixed stars which enter the eye which all put together won't amount to the million million million million million to part of the least moat of such an exquisite sense that it should distinctly perceive an image upon the retina that it is not above the eighty million millionth part of an inch wide. That has so nicely polished the retina that it should receive so small a picture upon it when the least pro Tuba Rinse or an evenness would utterly destroy and confound it here's Edwards amazed at the human eye but far more amazed at the God who created the human eye and the God who created the universe and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for Edwards and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for so many other people as Alexander Pope. The poet has it that nature and nature's laws lay hidden by night. God said let Newton be and then there was light Newton as the father of modern science. Believed that no way would science give us less room for God or somehow make less space for God and understanding of him? In fact it was the exact opposite for Isaac Newton. The more he studied God's universe the more he was led to acknowledge and worship God. Newton once said gravity may very well explained the motion of the planets for the can't explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and God knows all that is or all that can be known. That's the Great Isaac Newton
Lawrence Alfred (Navajo) Part 2
"Stike. Good Day. Welcome my friends to the storyteller. Will you'll find first nations people from across native North America who are following Jesus Christ without reservation. Today we'll hear more from Lawrence Alfred a Navajo from Tuba City Arizona. As he shares how he needed to hit bottom before he was willing to look up and he is always testify to me that there's a way there's a way out of trouble this hurting you. He said talk to me and tell me that you can't get out of this trouble. It's there's a way what what Jesus Christ he died on the Cross. Portia he went to the Cross and suffered and whatever is bothering you. Give it to him and he can go down tonight at that. Go down to your feelings and and hug you and bring you up hot at their. He understands you. Imagine a my son for five years will say that to me. I don't know where he got that wisdom from but he seems to me that he knew exactly what was wrong with me. Maybe Jesus is talking through him but he he said those saying semi and of course. I didn't listen. Sometimes I think if a man don't listen to wisdom to people telling you things the way to cries I think you're gonNA have to fall a little further down in your life fall way down deep down into the pit until you get rid of your pride and start looking for help. That's the only way you will. We as native men can understand are looking that Christ. Jesus so I think that that's what happened to me. I didn't understand. I didn't want to come to Kreis and I needed to fall. Further down emotionally economically losing my respect. Losing my character losing everything to allow astounded pit. Only WE I. I could learn anything and My son Jr he. He used to say things like that and he hugged me. And Tell me that I love you and of course that would say son.

What was the impetus that said you know what? I'm going to be a musician but I'm going to be a bass player as well. Well that was early on I mean just as a Kid. I think a lot of us that end up doing this. You know we discover music when we're really young and we just like it. We don't know anything about it. We don't play an instrument yet but we're just into it and that was me. I I listen to a lot of stuff. I was really into it when MTV came out. I just could not stop watching it. I just saw people playing on. Mtv knows like man. I want to do that so then when the time came I I gotta get started taking lessons for just a few months and then I was in a music store once waiting for my lesson in there was based on the wall and I was like. What's that and the guys who get the Bass Guitar and I? I had no idea what that was. It was like I wanNA check that out so as I'm waiting for my guitar lesson I start playing this basin it immediately just like wow like this instrument. This is what I WANNA play. Wow that's who's who's kind of like that. Yeah what what was it? Because there was only four strings would they because they were thicker the vibrations the lower frequency? I can't explain it. It's just like I started playing it and just really dug it. I was like wow. This thing's really cool like and then I kind of learned what it is and what its function isn't a band and Yeah just started taking lessons on one of those i. I was a caddy at the time. Saved up some money caddying at the golf course and bought a Kramer Bass Kramer Duke Bass Guitar. Oh Yeah that was in Norwalk Connecticut. You probably know where that is your from. Long Island right absolutely now not too far away. Yeah all right. So then what brought you down to Miami and eventually over here. Well I've you know pretty soon got pretty serious about it like I had my high school garage band jam on. Know Van. Halen led Zeppelin stuff like that. Then my family moved to Cleveland. Ohio and I was kind of thrust into all the all the groups in the school. Like in the music program like the Renault Bass players so I got thrust into jazz band concert band marching band. Because they didn't have Tubas so I played in marching band with a wireless and then look would do play in the pit orchestra for the musicals. They'd have it high school so I was just kind of thrust into all these situations that that made me a better musician you know I had to. I had to learn to read ahead to to play jazz. I had to learn. You know all all that kind of stuff you know. Kinda made me get serious about music and then started auditioning for other stuff around Cleveland. I played in this like all state jazz band called Ohio Jazz Orchestra for Youth and got my ass kicked in that really like you know. Made Me Kinda step up and shed a lot and that's a trip. How about half of the right? Yeah Yeah so. How did you learn how to read and and play changes and whatnot and jazz because you're going from rock and Roll Jazz? That's a transition. Oh yeah totally. I was a metal head before I did that. Likud I moved to Cleveland. I was like into thrash metal and stuff like that and like you know I started taking theory in the in the high school band director was was like. Oh you know we need to play jazz. Been and all this stuff and I'd never played any of that stuff before I had never read anything so I was just thrust into it and I had to learn and I got Got A teacher in Cleveland and helped me start reading and I got some reading books and practised reading. You know it was just like trial by fire. Sink or swim. You know if there's something that I couldn't figure out how to like take it home and figure it out you know and this is the days before the Internet Youtube to just look it up. Oh no I just had to kind of learn from books and learn from a teacher and just learn about putting the hours in just by you know Kinda practicing reading rhythms and reading notes and the more I did that in the more reading situations I got put into Just kind of the better I got at it and it was a very valuable skill that I was fortunate enough to learn on right. Incredible did you ever use the clap out? The rhythms before is doesn't that table. I remember I would just sit in bed with my book and like a flashlight and a pencil and I would just kind of like nod my head to the quarter note just tap out. The rhythms can only do that for a half hour before bed. You know things like that or if I if I had time where I didn't have my base with me and I couldn't like actually practice do that. Yeah just tap out the rhythms just to Kinda learn how to read rhythms. I talk about that all the time to this day. I'll be sitting on the airplane writing a chart totally an IPAD and you can just tap it out and you can count through it and slow it down right. Yeah I do that all the time just like on planes. Because that's like you know downtime. You have a lot of times in between gigs or whatever and you're like okay. We'll I can use. I can use this three hour flight to chart out tunes for the next GIG. That's right and that's all the time. Yeah Yeah we're GONNA come back to that actually so then you go to. Um so which is kind of good because you start in Jazz Ban. You get your feet wet. Yeah I got more serious a- more serious with jazz as time went on like I said I I was in that Ohio Jazz Orchestra for youth with a lot of real great players from local high schools. I did that and then I went to a interlocken center for the arts for two summer programs and then ended up staying for my senior year of High School Eight of Boarding School. It's just an arts boarding school where everybody's there to get just better at their craft. That's along we. There was there for years senior year so I did two summers and then stayed around for my senior year of high school. Then I went to University of Miami. That's immersive though that. That's Oh man. It was great idea. Yeah it really was because I was with a lot of like minded people all the time you know aside from our on. Sambas that we were in our classes. We jam constantly. You know late at night early in the morning like you're with a bunch of people that just want to play and that just really head start you know just putting in that many hours playing those very fortunate to have been able to do that okay. So that got you prepped for. Yeah then I went to Miami. Miami was the only school I auditioned for. I You know I was. I was an electric bass player. Never really got into the upright thing. A lot of other schools that have jazz programs. Were a little bit more traditional big bandy. You know to where like I couldn't really just be an electric bass player and you go there. Really my options were Miami Berkeley or am I and Miami just seemed to be the right program at the time but you didn't even apply to the others. I didn't I just. I applied auditioned addition to Miami. Got Accepted and that was it. Bam So my choice easy. That's awesome just went yet just went for one school. Yeah what was that like? It's great you've completed your yeah. I did for years. I did take a year off after freshman year. I just kind of wanted like takes time off and process everything because I I've been going pretty intensely for a while with with You know the the the summer jazz program I was in and then interlocken for a year and then after that I did a cruise ship for for the summer. Then I went to Miami for freshman year and It was just a ton of intense shedding for years. And I really just kinda needed to take time away from that just process it so I took a year off after Freshman Year. I did a cruise ship Gig for six on states. Saved up some money practice my ass off but also you know partied quite a bit simple. Do on. Cruise ships brilliant. Yeah just kind of wanted just. I just needed a year to Kinda like SORTA CATCH UP PROCESS. Right relaxed a little bit as well. I feel just like a lot of information intel. It was really practicing a lot back then. To right Yeah so took that year off and then went back and finished and it was great. It was a great program a lot of great players. I played in a lot of bands and just took in a lot of information and it was. It was
Johann Sebastian Bach 3: What's a Concerto?
"Kids. Concerto comes from two Italian words with sort of meanings first concerto means in agreement or together like the word concert. You go to a concert to hear people playing together but the Italian word contract. Tari has to do with struggling. And a concerto also has to do with one or more solo instruments doing friendly battle in concert with a larger group. Italian COMPOSER GIUSEPPE. Torelli gets most of the credit for developing the instrumental concerto. In the late sixteen hundreds an Italian who lived a bit later on Tonio Vivaldi wrote Zillions of Concerto will actually only five hundred or so. But it seems like Zillions Vivaldi's most famous set of concertos named for the four seasons the earliest concertos were written for violins. But you can have a concerto for any instrument. Here's one that you'll have nipple Makoma road for trumpet. One for cello by front-seat high one for Tuba by Refund Williams who in the late twentieth century Scottish composer James Macmillan wrote a concerto called vinnie Emmanuel for percussionist. Evelyn Glenn you can also have a concerto with more than one Solo Instrument Wolfgang Gone Medina's Mozart wrote this one for flute and Harp Dmitri Shostakovich wrote a wonderful concerto for piano and trumpet the end of the peace sense just like music for a silent movie. Let's because when he was young Shostakovich had a job playing piano for silent movies in box day composers also wrote something called the Concerto Grosso which does not mean. A concerto with slimy stuff. Losing out of it grow is Italian for great. Instead of just one or two soloists. A Concerto Grosso has a whole group of soloists. A smaller group pitted against a larger group. George Frederic Handel. Who lived at the same time as Bach wrote quite a few Concerto Grossi? That's the official plural of Concerto Grosso. a lot of Bach's Brandenburg concertos fall into the Concerto Grosso category in the Brandenburg Concerto. Number two the small group consists of Trumpet Flute Oboe Violin and the big group is made up of string instruments.
The Rise of Portuguese Gastronomy in Britain
"Opening of the Hawaiian Bar Restaurant Bar Dole rowing London. Three years ago was a milestone for Portuguese greasy and in the British capital both critics and the public loves to the place and also Monaco showed its approval by including Doro in our fifty best restaurants list now. The success story continues us the founder Max Graham and his team prepared to open their second and location. This timing London cece waterbed as I'm then to look back at the past three years to talk about the new location and the revival of Portuguese. Food Food in Brayson Max. Graham joins me here Madari House Studio One Abbey early. I actually opened a pop restaurant back in two thousand fourteen in in Greek street. I was walking my family business. which is Churchill's put company that makes wine imports in the valley? So the d'oro has always been very much in my blood in my upbringing childhoods but really walking for Churchill's when I opened the pool house which was really focused. It was more of a marketing stunt than anything else that was a pup restaurants pop up wind pool bar and we showcase folio of wines and ports in some very very simple produce driven sharing boards and yet during that period. I think I started eating out in London particularly in the Soho area and I just realized that Portuguese foods was very badly represented. I mean a lots of Portuguese restaurants in Stockwell and I absolutely love those restaurants but there are different Soda Portuguese restaurant and you know I was really at the time. I'm loving bar. Fina unloving Morita on these concepts. That were really showcasing. Spanish cuisine in such a contemporary outwards. Outwards way I'm really engaging with Londoners. I'm getting them excited about gastronomy from abroad and I just felt. Portugal wasn't doing that in in London at the time. So you decided to fix that. Yeah I mean I. I started the process of putting together. Ideas Footballer on that culminated in the the opening in two thousand sixteen in between then others opened up some Portuguese restaurants. Nunu Open Tabatha and you know a few years ago. It was great that was about three three of US laundry. No Tobacco really pushing Portuguese food and of course like I said. There's lots of restaurants in stockwell London that really lead. You backed Portugal Assad way which is a sort of nostalgic way. I think it's interesting that you mentioned that before. You launched Bhadra you. You felt that Portuguese food wasn't particularly well represented in London for example. What do you think that was? I don't know maybe London wasn't ready when I was much younger. That was a restaurant on the Kings road called Tuba. It was a Portuguese restaurant. And you know they were showcasing Portuguese food and I don't think think it just didn't engage with London's at the time you know this was about fifteen years ago and I just think potentially Londoners the appetites it's for new experiences. New Cuisines has just snowballed and London just hungry for new concepts particularly when they're showcasing acing cuisines that are less represented. I think that comes in tandem with the fact that Portugal has just been having such a surge in tourism such exposure over the last five years. I mean Portugal. Now the past five years it's just a completely different country. I mean when I grew up importer. It's just so far away from what it is. Today I think in Portugal there is such a wealth of culinary Marie on wine tradition. And I think that these experiences already being heightened and I just think London it is now more than ever probably quite excited to engage with Puccio before we talk about your second restaurants. You're about to launch. Let's still talk about well. Well the first module has been like how strong of a vision. Did you have in regards to the menu as you mentioned you. Spent your childhood impose import. So did you have very strong. Opinions on wall belongs to the menu. And what doesn't so. We actually run a pop up in Puto for the summer for two months with my head chef at the time and we really use thoughts time to brainstorm ideas to travel around you you know. I'm I grew up in the north of Portugal so I'm very familiar with the northern cuisine. But what's so special about Portugal. I'm what's been so special about. The last three is building Baltar is really engaging and learning about those other regions which also rich in culinary and gastronomy but yeah at the time that would favorites from childhood's that were also dishes that we thought had identity which was very reimposed since a lot of the Times a small plates Portuguese concept. You know that's not really traditional. You have petit scores which are sort of small plates. It's butts traditionally wouldn't eat like that in Portugal. It's more about largest sharing dishes and so so you know I was conscious that I didn't want it to just mimic another Spanish tapas restaurant. I really wanted those decisions. And those menu items to speak the identity of Portugal's Strana me which is very much Atlantic driven and you've done a good job. Let's remember that was just a couple of years ago when we ranked as one of the world's what's best restaurants here US monocle very very generous and wonderful knowledge. You're very welcome now. You're opening your your second restaurant in the city. How much could you tell us about that? How different or how simulates the second body raccoons be compared to the first one so I think at London Bridge we? He was slightly limited in a way. By what we wanted to keep the menu short to the point we rotated every every season. There are some dishes that just don't move because they become so popular. That can actually sometimes be quite limiting when you wanting to show off a another hundred dishes that you've come across crossing excited about. I think that's really what the policier in Hof has been. What's been great about that is that we have just really been exploring? During Portugal's different regions different Tad was different recipes. Different Cultures and I think that our menu in the city just gives us a really great opportunity to scratch a little bit deeper about what Portuguese food is. What are those star dishes? By the way that are very much in demand. People may find from both restaurants. Well I think the Buccleuch Bras is one that has been a bit of a heritage buckle. Er Brash is shoestring potatoes very very thin chips which is gently scrambled with eggs and the so-called which we rehydrate for forty eight hours Solved with some olives lovely dish it should be very creamy and it's it's a real comfort food dish and I hope that that will be something that people enjoy in the city as much as they have done in London Bridge. But we're also taking some really exciting new dishes working on this lovely ill dish from the IRA Rawda which will be Friday deals with a Byron source which is really traditionally used on suckling pig. So it's a a white pepper black pepper golic source but it's great on the Friday deals as well how much you still have to be discovered from Portugal. Something the world hasn't quite goes familiar with yet. Every time I go home I think the world has discovered it even more so than the last time. It's just every time there's more people. It's a great points at the alignment with this buzzer tourism but also the locals really embracing the tourism. I think as more and more people go to Portugal. It also drives the experimentation of the chefs impeachable. So there's a wealth of traditional food as a starting point. You've got this book which is all a Bible. Maria alluded Vest who literally has written down all of Portugal's star dishes but then you've also got this generation of chefs Jeffs that went away from Portugal. Who have started coming back on bringing with them? A huge amounts of technical expertise on the taking these very traditional recipes on expanding Portuguese food is expanding those boundaries and considering how reached the Portuguese culinary culture. Do you think there are many dishes and many ingredients. The world has been discovered yet. Something you struggled to find from outside of Portugal I think Portuguese food is obviously hugely driven by the Atlantic. One thing that is very very hard to compete with even though we're in Ireland is the rich miss of produce on fish that you got on the coast of Portugal. You got wonderful. CARBONARA is down in the all. Gov You get incredible perception. which is a goose? Bonna cool on the north coast particularly something like Incredibly Hard Oughta find elsewhere. Something I'd love to put on our menu but it's just one of these ingredients. That's better left for Portugal and better enjoyed when you go visit. I mean there's a lot of dishes that we thought about putting on which would definitely challenge. I think people's perceptions but I mean you've could be the which is made with chicken's blood and you know and there's a lot of tripe and offal dishes in the north of Portugal which I think maybe will hold off from on the next restaurant where probably gonNA play a little bit more safe than that but maybe As a special once in a while maybe one day as we mentioned already. You're just about to open. Open your sick and restaurants in the city. What about after that? Do you have any longer term plans. Walt may happen after that. Yeah I mean. We now imports about fifty percents of all winus. Direct from Boutique produces in Portugal. One thing I've really liked to develop more of a wine shop Pango and also we bring in a lot of cheeses and shall coutries would love to develop a mercer which is a deadly concept. I mean the sky's the limit. You've got punch bakeries. which would be great to get involved in but Baldur in its core concept I think I think it definitely has potential insult to grow to one team or sites off to this Max Graham Phone Giraffe Bar Douro and the new restaurant in London's broad gate opens later eighty two this month
Creatures That Emerged From Myth
"Today to creatures that defy logic and science. The Legend of the Chew Kabre Crosses All borders the Americas including Puerto Rico in the state of Maine.

How Could Artificial Glaciers Hydrate the Himalayas?
"Discussions about climate change tend to focus on low lying areas like coastal cities yet people who live at higher elevations also feel it's negative effects including fresh water shortages to help these folks get by the duckie inventor named Sonum one Schuch has created a line of artificial glaciers called called. I stoop as their restoring frozen water so it can be used hydrate crops in the driest stretch of the year. Glacial meltwater is a necessity for most villages judges in Lubbock a region of northern India. The DOC sits on the debt and plateau between the Karakoram and the Himalayan mountain ranges this elevated terrain is is world famous for its is supply Abedin Plateau and surrounding mountains contain more ice than any other non polar area on earth. Much of this is stored up in glaciers. His will help feed vital Asian waterways the young Zee the Mekong and Indus rivers. Unfortunately those glaciers are receding because of climate change between two thousand and three in two thousand fourteen the ones located near the Brahmaputra River source lost six point nine billion cubic miles of ice. That's twenty eight point. Eight billion in cubic kilometers with glaciers some seasonal melting is expected but normally winter snowfall allows glaciers to replace the melted ice. They lose during the springtime however across the plateau. Glaciers are no longer getting enough annual snowfall to offset their lost water and so many of them have been dwindling in size as a cold desert. The dock area sees very little rainfall receiving an average of two to three inches per year. That's about fifty to seventy millimeters meters. The summer months of June through August. Do get a modest amount of precipitation however that's also when a large quantity of melted water from neighbouring mountain. Glaciers enters the streams teams. That depends on a steady water flow fills the streams during the winter as well yet because of the frozen ground and low air temperatures. The farmers can't hint grow crops during the coldest months of the year. According to an Chook winter water gets under utilized as a result demand for meltwater grows exponentially in April April in May when the life-sustaining crops of wheat buckwheat and barley need to be sown and hydrated. But in the springtime before the glacial water arrives enforce the streams often run dry. Climate Change has worsened. The problem a twenty seventeen study found that over the past six decades about twenty percent of the permanent ice ice preserves and the Docs home state have disappeared that translates to less meltwater for the locals hoping to solve these water woes. A civil engineer by the the name of Chihuahua North L. devised an innovative reservoir system in the nineteen eighties and I hope I'm saying his name correctly I couldn't find a pronunciation using dams and channels nor fell L. diverted large volumes of glacial water into Manmade Lakes on the shady sides of mountains where it froze into blocks come springtime. The ice would melt and be sent downhill the farms and villages eligible by way of canal. But this ice melted to quickly so the water tended to run out before the summer rains arrived in two thousand thirteen Wangchuk deduced I ice in Norfolk dams melted so fast because too much of it was exposed to direct sunlight. When chook figured that if he could somehow freeze the ice into a conical tower with the narrow oh end aimed skyward much less surface area would be exposed to make his frozen stalagmites when Chook devised an irrigation system? That's brilliant in its simplicity. implicity the major component is a long pipeline most of this is buried deep underground with one end tapping into a glacial stream or naturally occurring reservoir high high in the mountains through the tube the water rushes in the direction of populated areas at lower altitudes. No moving parts are electrical gizmos are needed to keep the liquid water flowing. Gravity does the trick it also pushes the water into the final stage of its journey downhill. The pipeline connects at a sharp angle to another narrower pipe. That rises soil standing vertically like a telephone pole as the saying goes water seeks its own level gravity pretty and pressure gained by flow through the narrowing pipe together naturally propel the liquid straight up that pipe until it flies out of a sprinkler on the pipes raised tip high in the air. The spray encounters atmospheric temperatures in the ballpark of negative four degrees Fahrenheit. That's about negative twenty Celsius or lower before landing it freezes. He's a solid forming a large cone of ice around the vertical pipe. The cones distinctive shape resembles that Stupa which are traditional Buddhist prayer monuments that have graced creased look for thousands of years. Hence when Chook and his associates have taken to calling the new glacier like structures I status the ducks ice Tubas meltdown meltdown in late spring. Right when the need for liquid water is greatest. The prototypical stupa erected in the winter of two thousand thirteen contained about forty thousand gallons. That's about one hundred hundred and fifty thousand liters of frozen water and lasted until may eighteenth of two thousand fourteen. Since then numerous others have been constructed. Single Stupa has is watered as many as five thousand newly planted trees standing at sixty feet eighteen meters tall. It held a breathtaking five hundred and thirty thousand gallons. That's two million liters a frozen water. Others may someday exceed one hundred feet about thirty meters in height and hold two point six million gallons or ten million liters of water outside India.

Brussels doubts: another Brexit delay
"This morning, many hours after the leaders of the European Union sat down to dinner to discuss its most troublesome member an agreement was reached on what to do next tonight's. There will be on account of decided to grant stay United Kingdom of flexible extension of the article fifty period under the. The festival European Council. President Donald tusk pulled Britain back from a cliff edge averting, a default, no deal Brexit tomorrow. But the change in timeline came with a plea this extension this s flexible as Sykes -pected and solidified shotted the knife Specht about the still enough to find the best possible option. Do not waste this time. Britain's Prime Minister Theresa may hadn't been invited to the dinner. Instead she ate humble pie. Coming back to Brussels once again without a consensus on how to leave the EU nearly three years after Brits voted out. Let me conclude by saying this, I know that there is a huge frustration from many people that I had to request this extension. The UK should have left the EU by now and I sincerely regrets. The fact that I have not yet been able to persuade parliament to approve a deal which would allow the UK to leave in a smooth and orderly way. But the choices we now face are stark and the timetable is clear. That frustration had been all too evidence over the course of the evening. The big gap was between Angola Merckel of Germany who had most of the other leaders gathered around her and a minority around Emmanuel Macron, France, Germany, cliff rights, Charlemagne, our call him about European politics. He's been watching all of this from Brussels. Mrs Merckel was for granting Britain of very long extension to work out. What it really wanted from Brexit, and to ideally pass a deal zoo, the German jobs Lewis pushing for a delay until at least the end of the year perhaps into twenty twenty on the other hand demento macro wanted to force Britain to make up its mind sooner than that. And was pushing for maybe just a few additional weeks, so avoiding a no deal exit this Friday, but nonetheless, getting on with the decision and and getting out of the way of other issues the teachings of more important to the EU. So how was a middle way found how do they hammer this out in the end essentially, they decided to split the difference by going for thirty first which some would consider. A reasonable balance between the imperatives of getting the Brexit issue sorted out of the way on the one hand and also giving bricks and time to yourself out on the other on the flip side, you could say that it's both long enough for Britain to cause disruption and not not enough necessarily to make its mind up. But in in the meantime, one of the ways that Britain can make mischief is at next month's European parliament elections how much is that a factor in all of this is originally both sides really wanted to avoid prison participating in the year in parliamentary action, the Brits. Because they didn't think it would look good three years after Britain voted to leave the EU to be voting yet. Again, new legislators to the parliament in Strasbourg and on the European side. I think there was a sense that Britain now that it's ready halfway out of the door. Anyway, would be a disruptive force in the European parliament. And you know, could could end up leaving the club quite soon after it elects EMMY peas there, there is another way which is that Britain kind of enters. A gentlemen's agreement simply to lay low and and to not make mischief, and that's actually what has entered into Britain has for example, said that it won't interfere in the choice of the next European Commission. President it won't get in the way of of the Union's term objectives and to confirm that that will be an informal summit in June the review Britain's behavior as as as an ongoing member of the club. There's no suggestion that Britain will be objected prematurely on the back of that. But I think it's it is that is meant as a recurrence to people like manual Mackall who worry that Britain because trouble so is is Brexit having an effect on on the EU. More broadly is are all of these kinds of disagreements, and these long meetings sort of highlighting other divisions within the U you starting to see now is an interesting split between those who would like to see Britain change, it's mind either in general election or in a second referendum and rejoin or commit to stay in the EU. And I think you could count Angela Merkel's among those and some of the other northern members. And those who think that really it's time that Britain left in the end of the club needs to make virtue of that. And I think the macro belongs to that club. And those I think speak to brought a divides about what sort of e you Europe should be aiming for should it be a tight or integrated Europe or broader one along along more sort of loose lines. So I think you're gonna see that play out, particularly if Britain comes back to us yet another extension tuba.
A thirsty world: the future of water
"Of the largest rivers in the world is drying up. We didn't have if you rely on outside. She she's legally. He's a pig who I have lot without it. We just went off.
