"I think of banking and finance is a good way includes the will becoming more transactional. Yeah when when. I grew up my mom and dad to go into the bank of reweight. Bank the patriot. Yo by that used to have to go to the bank every week. Get cash Yet this year that's long gone as many generations of technology that that have come along but is the bank managing you every single one of the customers by nice again Over time your so. We go through numerous now to the point where we'll right now and it what's happened in the code will in many parts of the world was young pool with you know seeing some of our big banking clients on a regular devices and people thought that pre cover that they had pretty high penetration rights of iran on smartphones. But guess what they went through the roof last year could banks because all of a sudden the banking completely Spliced retail bank The the the that that evolving competitive sh- paradigm shift between the banks and the digital banks and the traditional banks. We saw we actually is to become a stop become one So net will you. People have stopped yemen. This was something. I your head really thought about to be honest but i still into co own australian bank couple of weeks ago and Cash handling has plummeted one of the big reasons to have a retail retail branch which is cash handling a type of people. Don't wanna handle keishi anymore aside. We've move money as become eletronic Yeah and look. I obviously haven't traveled use the last twelve months. I mean in the in the us. Yo you can't go anywhere without a dollar bill but but literally The amount of cash physical cash in circulation this changing so these signs of some of the macro trends that again to emerge for of banking for retailing The consumer good as we stopped move forward into the future. I think of the rise of e-trade is an interesting example. Here before e-trade came up no one would think about buying stocks without a broker with. They had a personal relationship with charles. Schwab was popular. But you would call somebody place the order for you and what we see now is stock trading. There is no human behind it made if we look. Robin hood is sorta z. A perfect example of the next phase of that but you know obviously two generations past banking since then obviously with the kick in the pants from ed even accelerated that process which has been underway for twenty years. But i think you're drawing an interesting thesis here that every industry is going towards that same evolution. It's just the question is how far behind banking are they. Are they right behind banking and that they're going to this more high transactional relationship versus high relational interaction or are they. Are they a few years. Do they have a little time before. That really takes. Hold look I think every industry is every industry is having to think in in the in the world we live in today is having to figure out how mun digital impacts every aspect of business. Today i mean with me ultimately. We are in enterprise software. We sell solutions to begin prize. But i've got a. I've got a lad sales organization in the us and that that now selling to Yeah the now selling to Your c. level executives in big corporations Your enterprise selling young for my whole career has been about face to face interaction and building a relationship of this was a huge paradigm shift for you know for the industry And even in a business to business sick that the implications of digital the will we live in a having a real life impact on a day-to-day vice already You will learn about the efficiencies of being able to conduct more business.

Basically the trigger. Even though it's twenty years later. Or if i hear a loud boom or allowed side i don't think any american will ever fly again without thinking about what happened on flight. Ninety three i'll be in shanksville over the weekend for the nine eleven ceremonies And i think that we need to think about those forty souls. They knew what their fate was and they were americans and they fought back and they're still trying to identify the remains of people in fact In the last couple of months. I think they've identified two more people and their remains. It's just mind boggling to me that that continues. It is mind boggling. There is a morgue in the basement of the nine eleven memorial in new york city and is guarded by police officer around the clock and as the dna testing gets more advanced and more advanced. They continue to run the ashes of people and bone fragments. That have to this day. Twenty years later never been identified because no one survived above the crash floors and many of those souls have never ever been identified. You know ashes to ashes dust dust. There were people. I was saying this to my husband just last night that there were people that had never been to new york before that were at a breakfast at windows on the world on the hundred and tenth floor. That never made it out alive. And i've been up there to eat. I mean i know how far up it is and gosh. If you get up a s you know caught up. They are i. I can only imagine what kind of fear was going through these people's bodies and minds. It's beyond anything that anyone could imagine. But i try to think about the firefighters that successfully got so many people out. That wouldn't have made it There were fire wardens every day civilians on every floor where you would be in charge if you were in the ninety three bombing there were four ways for exits to get down to the sky lobby and then from the sky lobby the forty something floor down to the ground but it was a very complicated building and complex to get out but the fire wardens on each floor. Many of them got every single civilian out. Evacuating down all those steps. And so i choose to think of the positive and the other positive memory i lived in manhattan at the time on the upper east side of the nineteenth precinct and the police fire house are next to each other and i remember all the people little kids in my building. That didn't know what to do and made cookies and cakes and pastries for the firemen and the policemen going back to each precinct and seeing how many people had died three hundred and forty three firefighters and the police officers that passed away. People wanted to do something. They brought towels. They brought gifts. Kids made arts and crafts. Just a feeling of just to say. Thank you and i think that going forward now that it's been twenty years. It's no less painful. If you've lost a loved one and we're going to have the twenty first anniversary and the twenty second and the twenty third. Just just say thank you to the people that are in law enforcement..

"Since that tragic day here in america. I remember My husband and i and our family were flying out of new york city the weekend before and My husband said to me turn around and look. There are the twin towers. And it's just so eerie as i think about that day when we were flying out there where if we had been flying home the next weekend you know We could have been on one of those planes to help. Remember what it was like that day. We spoke with robin williams ski. She was a reporter in new york city for the associated. Press radio network at the time and We've split up the interview into several parts throughout the morning because it was so good and So compelling so here's part one at that interview that i did with robin so you will working as a reporter for the ap radio network in new york city at the time This happened. Can you bring us back to that day. Twenty years ago. Oh well it. It's such a rough memory. I was in route to the new york stock exchange for ap radio where i had been on nine ten to cover the volatile market. And i was home about to leave in my apartment in manhattan and my tv. Set flickered. i was watching the. Abc station went over to nbc. And they were saying that news anchor was saying that there was a plane in the building in the world trade center. And you could see the smoke billowing. So i called back the ap. And i'm the person answers the phone. I don't even identify myself. I just say do you see this and the voice on the other and says yes go live and get down there and so we all know the events of nine eleven but i will tell you that standing underneath the building thinking that you know a plane was in the terrorists use planes as missiles into the building and i kept seeing things going out of the building thinking that it was furniture. Going out the window you know playing desk and furniture out. It wasn't until way later. On that i understood that those were people going out the window that that was their best hope because the fires were raging. And that's image that i'll never get out of my mind and then later on both buildings are on fire and i'm thinking myself how in the world of the firefighter is going to get up there to put this out and i had been in the ninety three world trade center bombing eight years prior and i'm thinking of all the people i know in there and you know. The governor's office and and cantor fitzgerald and people. I grew up with a new jersey in high school that worked in the building. And i'm thinking how are they gonna put this out. And i'm on the pay phone. Yeah i'm kind of dating myself here. Twenty on and i hear people screaming. Oh my god. Oh my god it. And i'm thinking what could be worse than than the twin towers on fire. And i step back and i peer around the payphone and the south tower is collapsing in slow motion and people are screaming and police. Officers are screaming. You know peak the f. o. g. Cfo you know. I'm kind of doing an an acronym. Here so i don't curse but if not for the police and first responders screaming for people to get away from the area So many more lives would have been lost. So did you have to basically run for your life from that payphone. At that moment. I did and you know people didn't know where to go. There was a period of time. Where i was hiding out in a basement in like a freezer area of a restaurant with all these strangers and we had a tv on. And i didn't know what to think or where to go. Do you go to central park. You get there some kind of way you go up to the united nations. Is that going to be a target. Do you go to the empire. State building is that going to be a target and we just didn't know and then we started hearing reports about other planes and the pentagon i didn't learn about the sank phil situation flight. Seventy seven t Flight seventy seven was in the pentagon. I didn't Hear about flight. Ninety three and shanksville until way later on in the day. 'cause all the cell phone service was out. How did you initially get to the site. Mean you take a cab and when you got there did you see any of the the second plane hit at all. I drove down there. And when i got down town from my apartment Because i have pressed place on my car and I just ditched my car. Somewhere and i ended up evacuating on foot and getting my car way later on and know it was covered with all the toxic dust. But you know the thing is all the people that perished in their over three thousand innocent americans and you know a nine twelve. We weren't black and white democrat republican. We were just americans and the terrorists took out that building not because of how beautiful it was glass. The metal the steal it it was a symbol. It was a symbol of american. Might of american strength. And that's why it never stopped being a target for eight years so the terrorists radical islam. Jihadist they play the long game. They're not into the news cycle of the west of the twitter verse forty characters. They wait us out of some bin laden. The top terrorists planned and plotted from cave for eight long years and we were sleep at the wheel. And that's when we went into afghanistan and now we're out of afghanistan. Do you fear this could happen again. Oh absolutely but in a way that will be way worse. Something that we've never thought of. And i'm kind of reminded of tom. Kaine the former governor of new jersey who was involved in the nine eleven report in the aftermath when congress looked at it in its entirety and the main nugget because i remember him saying and the news conference is that nine eleven was the failure of the american imagination. And it's a very powerful statement about that. Nine eleven was the failure of the american imagination. Yes in nineteen ninety-three the radical islamic terrorists. Put the bomb in the b. Two garage with the hope of toppling. The towers it didn't work and so they came up with this plan to hijack aircraft and to use them as missiles to attack it from a different way. They are always ten steps ahead of us. Have you suffered Health issues because you said you were covered in ash down there right. Yeah i'm in the nine eleven world trade center program twenty years later i have friends Who had even more exposure than i did who have cancers or have since passed away. I have a friend of here in the atlanta georgia. Area retired new york city policeman who has terminal cancer as we speak He had skin cancer. He was his job was at the staten island landfill to go through debris he was with the forensics unit looking for bones and body parts and he got skin cancer on his forehead that spread to his liver and pancreas and he currently has brain cancer..

"And we were you know giving a pep talk That we acknowledged there was learning loss but that we have to make up for that. And actually yesterday i was talking to one of my colleagues really complaining and feeling really really frustrated that our school if not the school district has misplaced priorities. We're supposed to address learning loss Yet were once a week. We have to test of my department. english has been called out three out of the four weeks. We've been in session to take our students to cover test so the continuity is lost. Oh during your class. You're saying you're everyone's told you get out of your seats. We're heading to the nurse's office to get the tests that we do every week. Because is such an issue instead of the learning that you were told better be happening. Yes so were there and then we returned to class. We'll we'll vaccinations make a different. I mean i guess i should ask. Do you get a sense that most of your these high school students they can get vaccinated. You get a sense that most of them are already. Don't know you know. Sometimes students reveal that to me. Personally i never asked the la county department of public. Health says about percent of kids age. Twelve to fifteen have received at least one dose of the vaccine as of early september. I don't know if that will make a difference but my senior level classes have all expressed. They'd rather do remote learning because it was actually convenient. It felt safe. They had gotten into a rhythm of it if a student test positive. I don't know all the ins and out but if the student test positive is withdrawn not withdrawn from the school but haas to quarantine for ten to fourteen days and then any students in that class seated next to the positive case has to quarantine as well and it's a revolving door of students. I probably have a third of my students absent in each class because of their close contact with someone who tested positive. Okay so then. I mean just from the health side of things. Then forget the teaching but but do you vaccinated adult. Do you feel at risk right now. I'm wearing my mask right now. You're wearing a mask right now. In your classroom i am. I am constantly mast in my class even when my doors are closed and alone you can unmask But i've chosen not to just because i don't feel safe. Everyone's viral load is up in the air probably comparatively were doing really well. But it's very very scary and we just have to do better resorting to wearing your mask alone at your workspace. Basically because you know that you're around at least several unvaccinated teens however that could change according to the la unified school district very soon. Thank you so much for the time. Thanks for sharing your story. Thank you thank you so much. I hope i gave you some insight as to what's really happening. Can we're gonna take another break when we return so big businesses need to mandate vaccines. What happens to the country's most popular business ready break. One last thing is next. Talk from time to time about other podcasts. My colleagues are working on here at abc. But i want to tell you about one where you might be able to help. Write the ending. Hear me out. The year is nineteen ninety. Eight a new york computer salesman named john rufo has been sentenced for his role in one of the largest fraud scams in american history. He's ordered a show up for his prison sentence but instead he just vanishes now all these years later the us marshals and our team or following the clues tracking down leads from across the country and around the world. All along the way asking the question have you seen this man helped crack the case. The podcast have you seen. This man is available now. Regulus and one last thing last night was the official kickoff to the nfl season and football draws in one of the largest cross sections of the country. You'll be shocked to know. They were vaccination controversies there too for the person robot my family you know on my feelings to my family and myself. Some of the biggest names in the league still say they're unvaccinated others are declining to say which is kind of a giveaway. Because of this you are vaccinated. You have different rules that will apply to you this year. Then if you're unvaccinated you don't have to get tested every day. You don't have to wear a mask under league rules this year players who are vaccinated are treated way differently than those who aren't for example if you're vaccinated and you test positive for cova you can get back on the field in a matter of days for unvaccinated players you miss at least ten days even if you feel fine could be multiple games and the public will know what your choice was. The union agreed to this the unmistakable messages unvaccinated players are bigger liability to their team. But one coach made the mistake of actually admitting that everyone was considered That was part of the production. what's his. Let's start talking about this. And then also vaccinate or not urban meyer of the jacksonville. Jaguars said vaccination status might determine whether a player makes the roster. It sent shockwaves around the league. The team walked it back. Saying vaccination was not considered here. But this comment wasn't all that surprising suspension from players get cut all the time not because a moral reasons but because coaches want consistency. They want their players available regular season. And you you wake up saturday morning and they come in and tell you that you've got five guys at that. That can't play on on sunday. And it's you're starting group. That's that's gonna shake your team up. Simple star players can afford to make waves with their choices. Second and third stringers can't take that chance with their coach which is why yesterday the nfl announce more than ninety percent of its players. Heaven deed gotten the shot. But if you're thinking wow the. Nfl must really care about player. Health critics say that is belied by the other. Big thing to watch for the season. Every team is now playing an extra game. That's an extra chance for injuries for fatigue for body so breakdown with little extra compensation and it's one more week for americans to argue with each other over who's truly taking one for the team.

"A present danger. There was the enactment of something called the usa patriot act and the nsa was interested in doing more surveillance of phone calls and emails giant questions about life. Liberty and security in. America are in the spotlight. As i've said this program is an important tool in our effort to disrupt terrorist plots a whole host of things that were previously off limits before nine eleven presently. The nation currently stands in the yellow condition in elevated risk. And then. of course. There's the the granddaddy of all of the government's structural changes the creation of the department of homeland security and it had new agencies like tsa several long lines at security people having to repack their suitcases because they have to ditch all liquids with them but additionally psa does that's lesser known and lesser understood. Is that when you go ahead and buy a plane ticket. You're gonna fly from new york to california to go visit. Your great adds twenty four hours before you get on that plane. The computers are checking to see if brad or josh has any suspicious travel patterns. I remember At the nine eleven memorial mass that we had for him A few weeks after nine eleven someone came up to my mother and said i'm alive today because of what your husband did when people kind of they want to know about nine eleven and how i see it I really just tell them that it was a really terrible day and a lot of people were affected poorly but for me like that's the day that i lost my mom and that's what it is more than september eleventh. What was it. Like september tenth. Two thousand one. And what is it like now. On september tenth two thousand twenty one to different countries. We had one expert who had a very interesting way of looking at it. His assessment was the sort of bravado and muscular nature of the american attitude basically was destroyed with the destruction of the twin towers on nine eleven and the last twenty years have basically been america in a creek. Protective crouch defensive scared and and a lot of what our country has done and a lot of what's happened like with law enforcement and the government has in some ways.

"It's friday september tenth and it's been twenty years since everything changed. You start here. Is families gathered to mark this timber. Eleventh attacks communities large and small reflect on what else was lost and the last two years have basically been america in creek. Protective crouch defensive scare or chief. Investigative reporter examines what happens when security agencies never forget the supreme court says the debate is over for now. The biden administration says no. It's not the justice department has filed a lawsuit against the state of texas women. Texas and elsewhere can expect when they seek an abortion and amid new vaccine mandates for businesses. The first one of the country for kids are school if not the school district has misplaced priorities by los angeles as it. No longer has room for hesitant parents from abc news. The start here. i'm brad. Milkey generation is twenty years. That means starting tomorrow. The generation will have passed since september. Eleventh two thousand and one that's generation of children who have become women and men a generation of lawmakers who have been replaced and a generation of law enforcement who've been trained knowing what the worst case scenario can really look like tomorrow morning families will gather at sites across the country the largest of which will be in new york names of the debt will be read aloud bells will mark the exact moments that planes began blasting into buildings but in some ways is an anniversary to be marked today as well september tenth. Two thousand one marks the last day in american history before a complete paradigm shift spent the last couple of days hearing firsthand accounts of the attacks and their aftermath. I and the series with abc's chief investigative reporter. Josh margolin this morning. One of the leaders of the series nine eleven twenty years later the longest shadow and josh before. We talk about what's changed. Since that day there is one development this week. I feel like we should mention. Is it true that they're still identifying bodies from the world trade center like this week while brad. That's one of the most fascinating things in in looking back at nine. Eleven the legacy of nine eleven years since and that's one of the things that we focused on our series on. Abc news live. Almost half of the victims at the world. Trade center have never been identified the rubble that was the world trade center. Emergency crews have been frantically digging all day. There's just the the terrible science that two enormous buildings collapsed any miniscule remains could have been damaged by the fire by jet fueled by by the force of the collapse of the buildings on. I'm hoping that anyone who got out and they there were a lot that dig it out. We'll see this picture. See his name and call me and let me know they will gonna be evacuated but the phone clicked off and that was the last anybody ever heard from her. There are people out there that that still wants. Answers still want results but interestingly the office of the chief medical examiner in new york city has spent these twenty years still with a small team of people trying to use ever evolving technology to identify remains based on ever smaller fragments. It was a shock. It was a shock. I so just this week. We ended up. Having an announcement of two victims now being identified one of them a woman from the long island she was on the ninety. Four th floor. The north tower thanks to new technology. The dna in some of the remains matched. Dorothy old toothbrush. And the thing is i. I've spoken over these years to a lot of victims families and survivors. How long did you hold onto. Hope for you. Had to step years years years. Yeah they just wanna have something tangible something that says that my husband my son my daughter. My wife might might my father that these people did not just disappear from the face of the earth. It's incredible that we are still discovering literally discovering new things about that day twenty years later can we zoom out a little because you cover law enforcement you cover national security. That's been your beat for so many years when you look back on september tenth of two thousand one. What has changed practically since that day. When you look at america stands now. I have to say brad. There's nothing that hasn't changed the rest of the you or not feeling down all of us. Those planes hit the towers and they hit the pentagon and those heroes on flight. Ninety three fourths the down in pennsylvania and no one realized it in the moment because it was not entirely clear in that very second but at that moment everything about law enforcement change new times the fudd by anxiety and security police officers down there when dog sniffing out cars say right now. Calls have increased tenfold. We saw the growth of things like see something say something which basically deputises all people and all local police departments to be the front lines in the war on terror. Islamic leaders say they had received threats as last week's attacks but they want people to realize that they're not the bad guys cruiser because we're arab-americans budgets for law enforcement exploded washington. Dc for instance has learned. That one has matt team is not nearly enough to cover a city every tau all of a sudden was on the frontlines in the war on terror. Traces of anthrax have been found in five post offices in palm beach county. There are no guarantees that that mail is safe got a vast coalition of people bound by this principle. Either you with us or you were the enemy. Then you have. America declaring war attack neff ghanistan and then two years later attacking iraq. Our coalition is strong. And we're keeping his strong and we're on the hunt. we're chasing them down one by one. So we end up having all number of veterans coming out of war zones. There's always hiring preferences for veterans as there should be in civil service hundred shock so you end up having a mindset among some veterans of the policing in the war zone which is dramatically different than policing in a civilian environment. Here on the home. From the pop. Tear-gas like whoa. He's spoken to a lot of people especially police commissioner in baltimore. Who's dealing with this issue right now. Twenty years later. Let's try to tamper down the militaristic look and mindset and move away from the warrior model into the guardian model where we guardians of our community. Not necessarily warriors of the community when even above the precinct level. Josh i gotta think that federally that the the direction that our country took and our federal agencies took that completely changed as well and that affects. every american doesn't matter who your mayor. Your governor is oh one hundred percent so the fbi turned its focus from being a reactive law enforcement organization in many ways to being a proactive organization whose goal is to stop the next attack before it occurs with my signature. This law will give intelligence and law enforcement officials important new tools.

"Know whatever. But i'm cold war. It's it's different. I think the twenty year thing is kind of significant. That's about the age. We are when we join and kind kinda get frozen in that. Yeah timeframe and you're talking about living persona driven lifestyle and the you know ranger to persona and you like put it on. You know you know and you wear until you transition and then baby keep doing it. But i think yeah when you think about like twenty years. That's seems like my whole life. Yeah twenty years. I can tell you that it's like the it's like a blurred you know of of serving twenty years but having done it in through a combat in rotations. There's a difference. And i totally respect that part of it and we're talking about a different level of veterans or a different set of. We're all kind of connected. You know what i mean. it's just Yeah so. I think you know when i start looking at something like this in this compilation. I'm hearing those some of the same challenges that happened. No matter where what timeframe that you get out. I think it is. You hit it right on the nail on the head. It's it's the same issues you know. It's the i was somebody here and i'm not going to be that person any longer. Whatever it was and you may not be. I remember wife telling her husband when he said he was going to retire. She's like you do realize you're not to be sergeant major anymore. When you walk out the door you do realize it. And she was dead serious he thought it was jokingly but he lived the persona of being a sergeant major all the time love that aspect of it right then you take off the uniform and like you said i thought that was really cool too because you take off the uniform and you. You don't realize that when you remove that it's not just the image of who.

"That's it everybody is just a human They have a different human experience. Just being a veteran and being in the military is a part of that but most of these people in the book. They found a way to help others. And it's kinda interesting hearing what you said that you guys had two different experiences with transition but you still came to this point i think about my personal career in photography i cold turkey then gave up fashion. Which is my career and like just gave up on it but still came back to photography in some capacity. So there's things that i feel like when you stop doing things yourself and you start doing things for others where you find success. The commitment to serve i think is the thing. That's that's what unites us all for sure. And that's what that's what that life coach. Who's also a therapist you know pointed out is that that's the thing that's missing and we find that common theme and i was gonna ask you boys you start going through and asking all the questions and everything that you guys start seeing a common thread. What was the common threads that you've found. I mean we just found a common thread that we all exit in a very different way but finally arrived at the same destination. What was the common thread or was there one that you saw to the seventy one that you talked to you. You know when. I went into this because i didn't know the vet space very well and i still looked better because you got me interested. Yeah yes i didn't. I didn't know i was outside of the spectrum so i was going in thinking that all these stories are somehow going to be like not so much unique there is going to be similarities with each story and every single person interviewed had such a different story and it really put me down this path and understanding that these are just human beings to and they have their own lives and their own thoughts just because they were all in the military doesn't mean they're like from one another but the only thing that i would say that was pretty consistent across the board is most of them all had rough transitions. Yeah i was about to say you vaccinate. They all struggle with their transition. And that's the one thing. I took away from it was. That's the only thing i kept hearing over and over. So that's the main issue that's going on if they're helping people that are happy with whether life has taken them but they had a shitty transition that's the aspect that we need to focus on when we say transition. Are you saying just the first thirty days sixty days ninety days. What was right on as long as es real quick to you to give example. I mean i've had people that had a transition within a month and then they found.

"Filter out a whole maybe bad ideas or or give new ideas or things like that somebody there that can really just give it to your straight and i think that's so important on a lot of veterans. I didn't do that. I i was just getting ready to say to this is this is interesting in a spend that i haven't heard that makes total sense because you're entering into a world like we talked about that ninety. Nine percent of the people are not like you. And that's what you should do is assimilate in some way and who better to teach you and guide you yet. What we tend to see though is more of the case of people looking for a mentor of a veteran has gotten out in in looking for people in this book that they can connect to and go. Hey help me out and there are organizations that that's all they do is set up and make you veteran mentors but i agree with you. I think There's a lot that you can take away by understanding the other side and them sharing the story of you know. Try to share the same thing to some people. Now that have been out for a period of time is like you know the purple heart that silver star those things being put on the top of your resume really gonna impress the hell out of that to be an employer. No they're going to thank you for your service. But where are you going to add the value in that hard true sometimes it. Somebody needs to say it well. I think what's interesting too. Is that you know we as humans need to be challenged you know. We need to put herself very vulnerable uncomfortable situations so i get where veterans. Look for other veterans after transition. But that's where because it's comfortable so when you actually force yourself to be uncomfortable and final civilian counterparts. That may seem ass backwards. You're putting yourself in a position of growth and you're gonna find it to be much easier going in that route. I think kind of sticking to a of your past and then trying to transition at the same time. Yeah how was it for you. I could read the book. But i'm just curious you know your stories What's what's interesting.

Capture it how to capture specific. Look that they know is going to turn outright. And the lighting is a certain way. They already figured that out. It's just that professional i mean.

It's been about fourteen. Because i did digital for about four years and then i switched to film into that for about ten But what's interesting is now that it's reprogram to me like we might have a project coming up as a team that we're gonna be working on where i have to shoot digital and unlike i really don't want to because i'm so used to film but i understand that these photos have to come out like super fast like we need to get them out that day that we're shooting the project but even with me shooting digital. I'm still going to be programmed to maybe shoot a few photos at a time rather than bursting crazy. What what's interesting about. The book is that we were talking about transition and we're talking about the stories post Combat and we focus a whole lot. And then we. We don't always get the transition aspects on this show but we try not to focus on their. I was necessarily more about if if you can take lessons. Learned from that. Great if there is something that you want to bring to the table because it it explains later why you may be wanting to talk about push. Dramatic stressor ti. That's great but the challenge. I think we all have. Is that as much as we try to talk to our brothers and sisters who are currently serving of the importance that we're all going to transition. Nobody wants to listen. So you know initially when we started this podcast. We very much focused because people said oh my knee guy to focus a little bit more on transition. We did and and people weren't listening because they feel like they've got it all figured out. So what's great about this is now. You're gonna see veterans may.

"twenty years" Discussed on Word on Wednesday with John Mason

"On wednesday podcast. The september eleven twenty years old. My name is john basin. It's great you could join us. Twenty years ago judith. And i were living three short blocks south of the twin towers in downtown manhattan. We had awakened that tuesday morning to clear blue skies and the sparkling waters of new york harbor. But it was not lost. We felt the shock. When the first tower was hit from the north we heard the scream at the second jet flying low overhead and what sounded like a sonic boom when the south tau was hit. We experienced the shaking of our apartment building similar to that of an earthquake and the midnight darkness when the first tower collapsed we saw the dust the ash and the paper on the streets and filthy eerie silence. When we were later able to leave al building though manhattan was like a moonscape. A great evil occurred that Twenty years on. It's easy to put aside that hideous acts that cut short. The knives of people going about their daily affairs. It's easy to forget that commercial airliners were used. As missiles to crash into the twin towers and into the pentagon a further flight intended for more destruction was thwarted by the selfless heroic efforts of passengers. People on that flight prayed. The lord's prayer as the plane crashed into a field in pennsylvania. Over three thousand bennett. Women died that In his address to the nation. That evening george w bush then president call for prayers for all who had lost loved ones he continued and i pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through the ages in psalm. Twenty three even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death i fear no evil for you are with me in the wolves street bible talks is giving at the time i spoke on psalm. Forty six which begins. God is our refuge in strength and ever present help in trouble therefore we will not fear there. The earth gave way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea though. It's waters roar and firm and the mountains quake with their raging. Let me identify three themes first creation in turmoil. It can never be said that the bible knows nothing about catastrophic events and not least human evil and a stimulating effects on this world in the psalm. Introduces a theme. We looked today namely the ultimate dissolution of the present world order by its creator. God continues his work even in the midst of the chaos gods supremacy and presence with these people is never thwarted. He unknown is our security and our strength the larger biblical epic records the intrusion of evil into god's good creation as we find in genesis chapter. Three god didn't create evil but because he didn't make us robots he allowed it however as the biblical narrative unfolds. We become aware of the reality and the depth of wickedness as a side. Note if we insist we are here by chance and nothing but atoms in an audit cohesion bumping around in time and space even suffering have no meaning for there is no transcendental moral compass the opening lines of psalm forty six speak of the unchanging. God who is our refuge and strength in him alone we find a secure shelter and the power within to address any situation indeed versus two and three exhort us not to fear even if the world around us is undone for god remains supreme over every facet of his creation the earth the mountains and the sees a second theme humanity in turmoil. Some forty-six moves from the upheaval of the material world to human turmoil. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of god we read god is in the midst of the city. It will not be moved. God will help it when the morning. Dawns jared edna comments that the city of god is one of the great themes of the old testament. God's choice of zahn or jerusalem had been striking as his choice of david and the wonder of it keeps breaking through we also find glimpses anticipating the new testament vision of the heavenly jerusalem as the community of god's people rather than as a place we find this for example in psalm. Forty eight and verse two i. Six of psalm. Forty six speaks of the instability of evil and human tumult. The nations are in uproar. The kingdom's her. However god has lost word for when he offers his voice. The earth belts. I seven is so reassuring. The lord of hosts is with us. The god of jacob is our refuge the lord of hosts points to the mighty armies of heaven to which jesus alluded when he was arrested as we find in matthew chapter. Twenty six and the word refuge is a different word to the word translated refuge in verse. One him it speaks of an inaccessible. Hot which the new english bible translates as our high stronghold. And a third fehb bay. Still this is eight or nine hour. An invitation to catch the vision of god's ultimate intention which is to make wars to cease to the end of the earth. It's a picture of the perfect peace that will follow on the other side of god's judgment the accounting that precedes the perfect righteousness of the new heaven and the new earth as we read about in two peter chapter three and versus twelve and thirteen. The camman be still is not so much. A word of comfort to the beleaguered but a command to all the nations cheeses word to the turbulent winds and waters peace. Be still display the power of god's word mind-bending though the idea is at god's command then nations will be called a water confronted by god's glorious power know that i am god i will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. In the closing words the confidence in god verse one returns with greater power. The lord of host is with us. The god of jacob is our refuge our high stronghold the death and the resurrection of the lord. Jesus christ confirmed the truth. And the trustworthiness.

"twenty years" Discussed on The Science Show

"The year two thousand and twenty was always going to be a tantalizing horizon for future thinkers even at symmetry conjures the clear-sightedness and precision of twenty twenty vision. Too which policymakers in resist manages. Always aspire twenty years ago. Most of southern australia was still in the group of the millenium drought. The dry conditions broke records around the nation. Perth stems where their lowest. Since the first world war and the southeast of the country was on its way to the dryest shania period since recordkeeping began as the bureau of meteorology. Put it at the time. This was the nation's first climate change drought. That observation came hot. On the heels of the third assessment report of the intergovernmental panel on climate change which made headlines around the world with this conclusion that there is new and stronger evidence that most of the global warming observed over the last fifty years is attributable to human activities if suburban households become complacent about the household woody's than the drought was a wakeup call across the nation. Education campaigns and water saving devices joined water restrictions in an effort to ease pressure on limited urban water supplies in melbourne for instance the voluntary target. One five five campaign aimed more than half the daily water consumption of residents by encouraging shorter showers while imposing strict limits on watering gardens washing the car. Brisbane went even further aiming to reduce residential would consumption to one hundred and forty liters of water per person per day. The rain water tank in grey water. Recycling became suburban. Must haves offering the means to keep gardens green in trying conditions as the damn levels so lower and lower state governments turned desalination with perth leading the way in two thousand six a prospect that was unthinkable just a decade earlier other states took notice and before long desalination plants were on the drawing board for the gold coast sydney melbourne and adelaide. But for the most part by the time those projects were completed. The rains had returned to the east coast and the plants built. There were dismissed as wipe elephants journalist. Chris noticed this change in the weather himself as he reflected in the updated edition of his book on the murray darling basin in two thousand and ten browsing through his local bookshop. He'd realized that he's book. The river somehow migrated from the environment and ecology section where. It's just six months ago to a new place on the history shows even so this record linear rainfall that broke the millenium. Drought did not turn back the clock. A drying trend continued across the south of the continent particularly in the southwest. Where winter rains had been in decline since the nineteen seventies julian part to human induced climate change indeed while eastern australia record high levels of rainfall in late twenty ten and in twenty eleven perth and much of southwestern austrailia experienced record dry weather. This is just some of the challenges of planning for both climate variability and climate change on a continent of extremes. It's been looking ahead into the future. That's being one of the ways in which ustralian have long tried to come to terms with this continent of extreme climate variability in twenty eleven. The climate commission released its first report declaring that australia was facing the critical decade back. Then of course. The climate commission was a federal government body established under the gillard government but it was dissolved under the abbott government. Soon after its election in two thousand thirteen the decade to twenty twenty. The climate commission's report argued was critical in terms of meeting the two degrees celsius guardrail by curbing emissions of carbon dioxide in the decade to twenty twenty global emissions had to be well on track to reaching by twenty fifty to limit the planet's warming taking the temperature on the nation's progress towards this goal in twenty seventeen the climate council the independent body that rose from the ashes of the climate commission declared that australia was now known as global climate lagged already the concentration of carbon dioxide emissions had tipped over four hundred parts per million higher than at any other time for millions of us and the planet's temperature was over one degree higher than temperatures before the industrial revolution of the eighteenth century. The report warned that the window of opportunity to limit worsening climate impacts is closing and already climate events were getting worse pointing not only to bush fires and hate waves but also to drought and drying across the south of the continent. Just as the gun. I report of two thousand. Eight and countless other scientific studies had predicted two thousand and nineteen was the driest year since records began in one thousand nine hundred and it was the country's warmest year in fact all these since two thousand thirteen are among the ten warmest on record australia. The impact of climate changes lead to longer more intense fire seasons and an increase in the average number of elevated fire weather days as measured by the forest fire danger index twenty nine thousand nine so the highest cumulated index on record fires have burned before an australian but never like those we saw over the summer. It's called comfort knowing that this disaster was nice surprise after all the two thousand eight garner report warned that fire seasons will start earlier and the slightly lighter and generally be more intense. This effect increases over time but should be directly observable by twenty twenty in another ten to twenty years time 2019 white. Be so unusual. Although this use emissions might be lower thanks to the covid lockdowns and the air might be cleaner. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere like carbon dioxide continues to rise and the period two thousand sixteen to twenty twenty looks set to be the warmest five year period on record. Unfortunately a few months of slowing down can't make up for the decades upon decades of greenhouse gas emissions that have accumulated in the atmosphere. He street is weighing heavily on the planet's climate future.
