Where Are the Good Guys in Business?
"Everyone. Welcome to another episode of women worldwide. Thank you so much for showing up for tuning in and we appreciate. How much sharing you're doing sharing the episodes and also letting us know how you're doing and how you feel because as you do we continue to deliver stories. The gas the inspiration motivation in the advice to help you so today's show is no different. Let's get right to it. The topic is men supporting women in the workplace. We're are the good guys in champions in the allies who were there to support and that is the perfect segue to my special guest today. And i say special guests because i have two guests joining me on the show. We have david. Smith and david is associate professor of sociology at the college of leadership ethics and at the us naval war college. And i think i might have mutilated that a little bit. So you can always crack me david and we have brad johnson who is a clinical psychologist of professor of psychology in the department of leadership ethics law at the united states naval academy and they are co authors. They i wrote a book called sina rising and now they've written a new book. It's called good. Guys how men can be better allies for women in the workplace david brad. Welcome to women. Worldwide's read to be here with you. Dear dre exterior Thanks for inviting us. Well my pleasure and what a topic to be talking about on women worldwide. We're thrilled that you wrote the book and before we get to good guys. Maybe you can each share how you've got to focusing on gender in the workplace in bringing men into extra david. Why don't you start us off certainly brandon. I taught together at the naval academy for almost eight years. And as you heard. I'm a sociologist. And i focus all of my research. We call the intersection of gender work and families looking at gender perspectives of work in careers and family interacts with that. In my good friend and colleague here dr brad. Johnson is a clinical psychologist. Whose done all of his research in the area of mentoring relationships. We found that together. We had a common interest in particular as we were looking at. How gender equity was playing out in a variety of different industries and professions including the ours around the military that that often these were conversations where there were more women and just not very many guys who were involved in these conversations in creating that equity in in really how men tuned out From the conversation the minute went something around gender or it was a women's leadership initiative. Whatever the case might have been the guys look at that in many cases that oh that's not for me. That's there's not a place for me there in so brad and i were really interested in learning more about how we get more men engaged in this conversation why they weren't engaging in this conversation because the way we are looking at it was women have advanced to a large degree in our organization today in senior leadership to probably about as far as they're gonna get without all of us really getting involved in really committing to creating this gender equity in the workplace and it was going to take men right because this is not just a women's issue. This is a leadership issue. So it's gonna take women and men to be involved in that and so that leads to our first. Our first collaboration excellent in brad. You wanna add anything to that from your perspective. You know i. i think there's also The personal case. For dave and i write so dave dave graduated from the naval academy here. And that's where he met his wife and and he got to see her go through the navy. He's as he stayed with his career. He sees her facing all of these headwinds that he's never encountered and and i think that gave him a real sense of empathy for the experience of women's You know Moments in the workplace being quite different in my case it was my younger sister whose also in the navy she's a navy captain and you know i was in the navy too and i i have just seen shannon my sisters experienced as being quite different right she fit gets told to smile all the time She gets shamed for running too fast on physical fitness test. Because it makes the guys feel bad you know there are just so many things i never encountered. I think for both dave and i. You know we've had these eye opening moments with women we care about. So yes there's yeah condemning business case. That got us intrigued here. But there's a personal as well.
Insights of Commanding a Carrier Jet Squadron with Jack Curtis
"Jack curtis here on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show my friend. Thank you very much for having me. It's pleasure this is going to be an interesting conversation. I mean it's obviously. I love having fellow prior military folks on here but now that i got a fellow gold winger on here so that's always fun but never had anybody that's been in command of a squadron on one of the things that i always regret. I gotta the ring court right at ten years. I got the airlines. But what are the an. I ten years reserves and the guard. But i always regretted not taking. I always want to know what it'd be like. Take command so this is going to be a fun conversation. I am interested from your aspect of it. I was joking when i got on the call with. You don't look old enough to take command. But i forget how my squadron commander was like in the late thirties. Fifty two now. And you're in your early forties right so you just don't look old enough to take command but i it's just me not dealing well with the age of getting older but but thanks for coming on the show man privilege beer. I've listened to your show for for a long time. Several years. And i gotta i gotta admit i'm pretty humbled to have looked at the lineup of people you've got on your show and the quality conversations you've had into now get to be a part of. Its thank you well new and i have a history to because i don't how many years ago wasn't you reached out to me. I mean in karachi. That's probably two thousand and fifteen. Or so i had just selected been selected for command was kinda starting to do a little bit of thinking about Some this bigger picture leadership stuff and i came across your podcast. And i said hey. I think i'd like to talk to this guy. And your gracious enough with your time and I remain grateful for that. Yeah and you reached out in an i. Don't remember what advice gave you. Hopefully it was. It was okay enough. Didn't get fired very go. And and then you reach that again graciously a blast from the past and you kinda update me where you're at and i appreciate you. I thought well this might be good to have you on the show because it gives an insight to leadership that i think a lot of people usually don't get the inside baseball on right and i'm curious to because it's something that i've never experienced. It's something that i always wish. I wonder how i would do. But you had a unique experience. Let just for the sake of our listeners. Your naval aviator right. You eventually started flu wing. How long have a perspective here. What year was that yes. We'll jump in the way back machine. A graduated from the university of florida in may of two thousand I immediately went up. To pensacola started flight. School you're familiar with this track You made my way through Through flight school and then ended up finishing in may of two thousand. Two's almost exactly two years of flight school which is relatively quick Yeah i had a lot of A lot of wait times like six Wait six months. then i'd start a phase. Wait six started phase so it took me a while. Yeah i was really grateful to be able to go through that quickly to i think And your instructor. If i recall correctly i mean one of the things. That's so important. When you're learning a new skill or a trade or a job or task is just repetition over and over and as you work towards those ten thousand hours right and You know being able to go through flight school. That quickly meant that. I was flying almost every day. I was in a simulator almost every day. Sometimes twice a day and You know being a middle of the bell curve kind of blue collar pilot. Like i'm in a career of repetition important so yeah long. Answer your question but i got winged in two thousand and two. Okay good yeah so that you're about eleven years ahead head me or eight years. I got winged and yeah ten years ahead of me winged in. I wanna keep doing this math. I'm like my head's about to explode anyway. I'm old you're not so that's the whole thing that it came up with so you get and you fly the ea six right. And so you're you're flying to that and eventually transition to the e. Eighteen growler super hornet and eventually took command right. And so. when did you so this is interesting. So when did is this your first command and when was this. When was your first command. Yeah so you know the navy. Does things a bit differently than Some of the other services particularly army and the marines where he will have a platoon commander for our company commander the navy Typically there are a few exceptions with some of the small ships but The navy typically reserves its first level of command at the level In the marine corps. In the army as lieutenant colonel battalion command in the navy at squadron command of a squadron commanded on the aircraft side or it could be on the ships a destroyer Nope yes this is. My perception commands I took command having been in the navy for. I think the eighteen year mark
The Beauty Queen Killer Christopher Wilder
"We often imagined monsters lurking in the darkness waiting for the perfect time to strike but the worst monsters the real monsters walk amongst us in the light of day nowhere is truly safe not a brightly lit shopping mall or even a crowded racetrack and real monsters will use your own ambitions against you with friendly grins and empty promises. The lure you win by you everything. You've always wanted fame fortune a modeling career. And just when you think you're going to get it they'll take everything from you including your life. One of those monsters was christopher bernard wilder born during world war two in sydney australia while just first moments were traumatic. During the delivery wilder struggled to breathe and doctors feared that he would die. A priest was rushed into the room to read wilder. His last rites miraculously after being crate over the baby's vital signs began to improve before long wilder was in clear. Of course wilder doesn't remember his first brush with death but he did claim to remember the second. When wilder was two years old he nearly drowned. Some accounts say that he fell into a pool others that he was at the beach either way the incident had lasting effects on wildfires. Hell he suffered from convulsions. And fainting spells for the next years. The convulsions were painful and arguably affected wilders mental health. These were his formative years. He wanted to be strong like his father. Who was a war hero. But growing up sick made him feel less and week. He couldn't wait to grow up and be a strong adult but as he started to. These fantasies evolved into something darker. He didn't just want to be strong. He wanted to be powerful. And perhaps in wilders young mind he associated power with dominance. because in these new fantasies wild. You're pictured himself hurting people. Despite these disturbing thoughts. Wilders childhood was actually a pleasant one his parents. Us naval officer and an australian woman were in a healthy relationship and provided wilder a stable middle class life in sydney. He was an average student to attended. Good schools held dual citizenship in both america and australia but instead of using these privileges to better himself wilder became spoiled and entitled in his early teens. Wilder reportedly avoided his responsibilities at home and at school spending most of his time hanging out with friends and drinking on the beach while there was a popular presence. They're no longer considered sickly. He started surfing and developed an athletic build. Girls took notice and as his confidence grew. He learned how to be charming. And funny the outside wild your head succeeded in becoming the strong person he had always wanted to be but inside. He was still harbouring. Dark thoughts and fantasies of dominance became more sexualize te. He'd noticed the girls at the beach but instead of imagining taking them on a date he fantasized about raping them. Vanessa's take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode as a note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this. Show thanks greg wilders. Worrying fantasies about sexual violence were early indicators of his later killings criminology professor dr scott bond states that serial killers program themselves in childhood to become murderers through progressively intensifying loop of fantasy that means that the more wilder fantasized about sexual acts. The more he normalized them and once those violent sexual fantasies felt natural to him. He imagined increasingly escalating violence. Potential serial killers can go through this cycle for years before ever attacking their first victim. Although wilders loop had just begun he was already having difficulty keeping his burgeoning sexual urges in check so he started acting on them in the early nineteen sixties when wilder was eighteen or sixteen years old. He started sneaking out of the house but wilder wasn't meeting up with friends or taking joy rides. He was prowling suburban neighborhood in search of attractive women and when he found one likely and other teenager wilder would follow her home and wait he would watch them through their windows hoping to catch a glimpse of them naked one night a concerned neighbor spotted while dir and called the police but when the authorities arrived they lent wild. You're go with only a warning. The lack of punishment proved wilder. That there was nothing wrong with what he was doing so he started imagining what else he could get away with
Greek Mythology Sites
"East and the other one towards the west. They flew around the world and they both met above the site of delfi when zeus all where they met he said. Okay this is the center of the earth so he took these giant stone and throw it there and from that point they say that the naval of the world was created and that was the site of delfi. Now there was an oracle there. Yes so how did that. How did the gods speak to the people at delfi. The story says that the people at that time which is around eight of years before the birth of christ they started seeing their goats going up on the cliffs and then hoping very happy very enthusiastic so the goat started hopping after visiting delfi yup and they followed them and they realized that they were inhaling. This vapes so vapor is coming out of the world out of the earth like a crack in the ground. There's a crack in the ground. And the ideology of managed to discover with geologists the managed to discover rox with signs of specific chemical contents of fumes. That will come okay so they realized that there was something magical. Competent back then signs was not as developed as it is now that they believe that this was a divine sign so everybody is believing. The gods are speaking to the people through a crack in the earth in delfi up in the mountains north west of athens and then how did the people who were in power capitalize on that to take advantage of that delfi became the most important placing the ancient world. Everybody all the kingdoms they would go there in order to find out. They should go to war if they should do. Big public works whatever. They had to decide if they felt. It was a very important decision. They would go there and nas the oracle for advice. So it's going into this mysterious temple and you've got priestesses and robes and crazy things and they really think this is the the oz on earth there would be these young girls that were inside special rooms underneath the temple of apollo and they would inhale vapes and starts talking in a way that no one would understand so they had priest that would decipher. We got to decipher as he wanted to today as a tourist. What do we see in delfi. Philippos see the ruins of the temple of apollo was the treasurer of the athenians. Which is building that the erected in order to commemorate because they took a lot of money. I suppose what's on the to the horse. Yeah so every city stayed with covid tone treasury the athenian you walk up to the temples and the theater and race course and so on and you pass all these temples that were treasuries collecting all that money. it's a fascinating place to check out one of the best sites from ancient greece. This is travel with rick. Steves with johanna wanna costa and phillips kind of cars. We're talking about greek mythology from the travelers point of view. You wanna if you're taking groups around whereas one site that you like to take groups where you really want to understand the greek mythology behind it. There are so many. It's all over the country wherever you were wherever you see mountains plans. Everything has a mess behind it. But there's a part of the peloponnese peninsula which is really unknown to the people come into the country. The heart of the peloponnese. The area called acadia very rich mythology over there. And one of my favorite stories is the story of where the name came from. So there was zeus. Who was a playboy. He was always in love with many women. Herro was his god. His wife hera okiro once fell in love with a beautiful girl. Her name was callisto and She got pregnant and hero found out and she really got mad. So zeus change their woman. Kelly stole to bear an animal and she was wandering around the mountains. The beautiful forest server. Katya she before that i should add. She had a baby and the baby grew up. His name was cass. He became a very good hunter growing into the forest and one day there was a bear right across from where he was so he took out his bow and arrow he was ready to hit the bear. The zoo so what is going to happen was horrible so he immediately changed the boy to a little bear as well
Which Is the Best $99 Smart Speaker for You?
"The three big players in the smart speaker space. That would be apple. That would be amazon and of that would be. Google have released three ninety nine dollar smart speakers. It's a excellent price point to add a smart speaker to your home and we decided to take a look at the top three these competitors and talk about what each of them can provide for you and maybe even try to figure out which one is the best what start by talking about the nest audio arguably the largest of the three smart speakers and i would also say about the heaviest as well. This is a very popular smart speaker. And in fact when google announced at its event the new pixel phones and this nest audio it was the nest audio took the lead on its excitement and what folks had wanted that is because it is i would say arguably a very beautiful device. This is a sort of pillow shaped smart speaker. Which is a little bit different from what you might be used to. I think that that adds to kind of the intrigue of it is not your typical Shaped smart speaker. It's not the echo of past and it is not the orb of the current kind of generation of smart speakers. The audio comes in multiple colors. This nice green color a blue color a black color a white color and a pink color and this one is it's gorgeous it has this nice fabric on the outside which for some people is a little bit of an issue because you might get dirty but the idea is that you place it somewhere and you leave it there and then you don't worry about it talking about kind of what's packed inside. I think that's an important part. You've got a seventy five millimeter wolfer and a nine thousand nine millimeter tweeter. Nine thousand nine millimeter twitter so to sound producing devices. That give you the the output that you want hear this google nest audio also features on the back a mute switch for the mike. That is a physical mute switch. So that way. You don't have any concerns. The devices listening to you or not listening to you can very easily tell and in fact it will make a it will let you know. We'll say the mike is turned on. The mike is turned off. Whenever you flip between these two it also has something that i have found particularly troubling about this device. Which are capacitive buttons for capacitive zones for volume up and volume down. There are three touch areas across the top. One kind of for doing interactions play pause and stuff like that and then volume up and volume down but that makes it so that it is almost impossible to move this device anywhere without accidentally turning up or down the volume and so it's very sensitive at the top and there's also the fact that you know you don't know where you're touching to turn the volume up or turn the volume down which can be an issue and it's also accessibility concern on the back. You have simply won the power option and with the power is proprietary adapter. So you'll definitely want to make sure that you have the adaptor that comes with it in the box and outside of that year that that's it. There are no other ports or anything like that so that is the nest audio first of all. Now let's talk about the echo fourth generation. This is amazon's new orb shaped device instead of being at the top. You have the they call it the alien say ring at the bottom. This is the kind of a bit of visual interaction that lets you know when alien say is listening and also will turn up or turn down the lights will dim and move to one side or brighton and move to the other side to let you know when the volume is up or down the most of it is fabric all of the back of it. Is this plastic area and this is kind of to let you know where you should be facing it so where the nest audio is definitely a front firing speaker. You can very clearly tell that it is meant to be aimed out. You might be confused when you've got the orb so they've made it very clear that the fabric is the acoustically invisible. Fabric is the way that you want to be. This has a one point. Six inch speaker inside and amazon says that this is a much better sounding device than those of years passed on the top. You have a volume up and volume down button. You have a mike mute button and you have a way to trigger alien say so instead of actually having to say the name of your smart assistance you can simply hit that button to communicate with alien say. This is a very nice visual way to know whenever alien say is or is not listening and so hitting that button actually turn the ring at the bottom. Read on the back again. A proprietary charging port as well as a headphone jack or rather a three point. Five millimeter line out. And i want to talk about that because it's not just a line out. It's a three point five. Millimeter line out and line in. So you can use this as a bluetooth speaker you can use it as a way to put music into it over the three point five millimeter headphone jack. And wire or you can use it to pump audio out into a better speakers that you have in your house. So that is something that is unique to the echo that you're not going to get with the nest audio or with the next one. Which is the home pod. I do like these. These actual physical controls on the top. That differ from the capacitive touch options on both the homepod mini and the audio particularly because of the fact that it is more accessible. I can actually reach out and feel those controls as opposed to not knowing exactly what i'm doing now. All of these devices support eight. Oh two all the way up to eight hundred eleven eight wifi so you can get super fast wifi on these devices regardless of which one you go with and then the last one is apple's homepod many now the first thing to note. Is that in comparison to these other ninety nine dollar smart speakers. It is certainly the smallest of the three. This is a tiny little Sort of naval orange sized smart speaker and so one might think that you know. There's not a whole lot going on in terms of audio. But i have found that it is actually quite powerful. Despite the fact that it is small it has a driver and two passive radiators inside to help provide some base in the device and then on top. You've got capacitive touch with the volume up and volume down buttons actually etched into the surface. This appear becomes the area where you can touch to control it now again. No physical touch controls so not as accessible and then when we look on the back yet again there is no way to connect anything to it. You have to use air. Play to be able to play music podcasts etc to this device or communicate with a directly and let it be the the way to communicate now. Interestingly whereas the other two feature the little plugs on the back of the device itself This device the homepod mini comes with a cord and on the other side of the cord is usb c. This is a usb c cable that you plug into the included. Twenty watt charger. Or you can use your own personal. Eighteen watt charger to provide audio to to provide power to this. So let's talk about which one makes sense for you. I'm here is kind of how i look at these. Just just talking specifically about a rather broadly about the different types of devices to kind of how help yourself kind of understand where each fits if you are an android user and you're big in the google camp. Then the nest audio is immediately the winner if you are an apple user and you're big in the irs and mac os and tv os and apple. Tv are the ipod. Os or apple. Watch os then. The homepod mini is the immediate winner. But if you don't fit into either of those camps really and you sort of use some ios devices. use some google devices. Then you might be right in the middle here with the new echo. The fourth generation echo. But things get a little bit more complicated because it is easy to choose between these two whether you homepod mini or nest audio based on what you What devices you mostly use whereas when does the recommendation make the most sense for the echo. Fourth gen well. That makes the most sense. If you're looking for a device that lets you both pipe in audio physically and pipe out audio physically. So if you want a way to make your beautiful sounding smarts or rather your beautiful sounding speakers in your home Have smarts then. The echo is the way to go because you can actually connect it. Then you get alien and all the functions that that provides but you get to hear it on your incredible sound system
Project Rainbow and Flying Saucers
"To kids myths and mysteries. I've your host. Kent chrome today rothwells theory. I'll begin with three assumptions. That most theorists can agree on first that flying saucer did crash near roswell new mexico in july nineteen forty seven second that bodies were recovered from the crash site and third that there are scientists working on projects that are rated above top secret and the us government and military branches are not privy to the thread. That connects the pieces of this theory. Is that the security team surrounding these super top secret. Scientific projects has access to the best technology in the field of stealth investigation and manipulation and are possessed of the ability to control all branches of military as well as federal government with the purpose of keeping these projects secret. Only the purpose of this theory is to establish not just a flying saucers crashed near roswell bodies were retrieved but the source of the flying saucer the nature of the crew and the evidence that security teams protecting various super top secret projects were involved to understand the crash of flying saucer at roswell nineteen forty seven we need to go back four more years to nineteen forty three and parallel projects intended to bring world war two to an end. The project brought to fruition was dubbed. Little boy it was the first atomic bomb. The one that was dropped on hiroshima the first control nuclear reaction was in one thousand nine hundred forty two at the university of chicago's reactor and rico firm oversaw the first controlled energy release from the nucleus of an atom after intense effort. The oakridge plant in tennessee began to produce bomb-grade us to thirty five from nineteen forty two to nineteen forty five manhattan project continued progress toward the end result an atomic bomb now. The parallel project. I mentioned was dubbed project rainbow on august twelve nineteen forty-three. It was leaked. That the us navy conducted a test of some sort on the uss eldridge a d. e. class destroyer at the philadelphia navy yard. The exact nature of this test however is open to speculation that tasks or tests were conducted but only produced undesirable results afterwards. the project was supposedly cancel. Not as the public was led to believe because it failed. But because the manhattan project was moving ahead without a hitch but project rainbow was not only not cancelled. It was not an attempt to make the. Us eldridge invisible nor was his project conducted by the navy. It was simply the a naval vessel was chosen as a guinea pig. The name rainbow was attached to the project because of the nature of a rainbow to start at one point ended another. It was determined that if the navy vessels could be transported from an allied area to a battle zone in a matter of minutes that it could turn the tide of the war project. rainbow was based on is stein's theory on the space time continuum too. Massive tesla coils which acted as electromagnetic generators were utilized. One was mounted forward mounted aft. Other accounts state. Their series of generators called gaza's were us when activated. The electromagnetic field would extend out from the ship when the actual test was put into motion. A number of unexpected. A bizarre side effects occurred as the electromagnetic field increased in strength to begin to extend this for out as a hundred yards from the ship in all directions. Forming a large spear within this field to ship became fuzzy and indistinct and agrees hayes formed around the vessel obscuring it from view eventually the only visible object was the outline of the whole of the eldridge where it entered the water then to the amazement of onlookers. The entire ship vanished from view. It was at this point. The vanishing of the alridge that the true power of electromagnetic field that had been created was revealed. Eldridge had not only banished from the view of observers philadelphia. It had vanished from philadelphia altogether. This ship had been instantly transported several hundred miles away from philadelphia to norfolk virginia. And this was the goal after a few minutes. The ship once again banished to return back to philadelphia the failings of the task to become purposefully obscured and vague. As was the intention of the team that was in charge of keeping project. Remember secret secure. Little boy was dropped on hiroshima august. Six one thousand nine hundred forty five and twenty two days later. Japan's surrender in world. War two was brought to an end but the research on project rainbow continued.

He expected as much so naturally when he purchased five technical reports from a russian professor at bowman state university in moscow named anatoly bobken. He took proper precautions. Both pope and babkin signed contracts acknowledging. The reports did not contain any classified information yet. On april third two thousand members of the russian federal security service arrested him and brought him to lefortovo prison for questioning. He stood accused of espionage. At first pope felt the arrest was a joke but his tune changed when authorities locked him in an eight by fifteen foot prison cell for days. Pope was interrogated around the clock. The russians believed he was a high level spy working for the cia to make him miserable. They kept his cell at a chilling forty five degrees fahrenheit. He experienced no physical abuse. But witness the corporeal torture of at least two fellow inmates and he was subjected to sleep deprivation and other forms of psychological warfare. Days turned two weeks which turned two months eventually. Pope was moved to a communal six bunks cell in the prison there. His cellmates chain smoked cigarettes eight. His limited provisions and on one occasion stole his medicine when it came time for a trial in december the proceedings were held behind closed doors pokes lawyer demanded an acquittal outlining to a judge. The reasons why pope had done nothing wrong and how the prosecution had failed to provide proper evidence but ultimately on december seventh the court convicted pope and sentenced him to twenty years in prison the maximum he could receive that time would be spent performing hard labor. Which is why. Pope was shocked to learn that the russian president had pardoned him almost immediately after the ruling he may have spent two hundred fifty three days in custody but he never served a day of his official sentence. Within hours of the announcement pope appeared before the press responding to a reporter's question about how it felt to be a free man again. He said i have mixed feelings. I'm glad but at the same time. I'm sad that i may have caused harm to the relations between our countries. Of course this diplomatic response was made before he and his wife sherry boarded a plane headed to an american hospital in germany. The media would have to get the full story later once. He confirmed that he wasn't about to die.

Contemporary public art: who is it for?
"Louisa. When i look back over the newspaper dot com archive in in relation to christoph boucle. What i found was a lot of fierce debates mentioned in the articles about him often involving authorities as well as art world people. He wants to create this kind of control. He doesn't need so so tell us about this latest controversy. Why is it such conservancy. It starts off by the venice biennale in two thousand nine hundred nineteen when we will all of us walking through the arsenal and that was a vast rusting boat on the key side. Not in water. That's not an unusual thing to see. It looked kind of weirdly home amongst the other sort of naval paraphernalia around in the snarly but then of course there was no notice nothing to identify it. If diligent you look up in the catalog but unite was very mysterious but of course word of mouth soon came through this was indeed a work and art not a piece of rusting boatlift over by the navy it was balkan nostra it was cooled and it was actually the very boat which had been leaving libya for its louis laden with excess. Don't know how many of the thousands immigrants trying to get it collided with portuguese freighter. Got into trouble and sunk killing everybody. Pretty much on board. I mean it was an absolute atrocity slash disaster. The boat was then taken by the italian navy to sicily where there was an incredible detailed forensic investigation on all of the bodies of the victims many of whom were trapped in the hall of the boat. They'd be impacting. It was it was a trafficking boats. It was a horrific horrific scenario There was a forensic detailed investigations to who the identity of these people were many of their families traced and so they learn to the terrible fate of relatives now. I didn't quite know how this happened. But then time passes from two thousand fifteen. Somehow a deal is struck with the sicilian town of augusta where this both ended up in the naval base to bring it to the venice biennale as an exhibit. Christopher cal had signed a contract with the town of augusta that he could borrow the boat for yeah it would be exhibited has been and then he would return it a year later so the boats there everybody feels extremely conflicted about some people said it was a brilliant idea that shows how decadent the art world is how decadent our world is how uncaring we are. It was kind of appalling. I felt the boat was parked right by the cafe. So you start swinging europe roles and your and your cappuccinos. Perhaps not knowing there was in effect the site of mass atrocity a mass grave. Right beside you. So was it makes us think about our place. In the world on carrying thought about crises unfolding very close to us or was it. An exploitative opportunistic attention seeking Profile raising artwork by christopher. Koop and as you say he does have form in this respect. He's done other things. He's crushed landed a mosque in venice inside the catholic church for another being all for the icelandic pavilion. Several years ago he also set up community centers on controversial other things in tasmania. We'll probably talk about in a minute. So but this was a big one and yes it's very raw and the debate in the controversy still rages but the latest part of. This debate is a year on from the being ali. The boat is still. There is a dispute between the being early organization and bianco and he's gallery well absolutely yes. Because as i said he signed a deal with the city in town of augusta. Maybe you know. Maybe money exchanged hands. I don't know but anyway but the deal was that the boat would then come back to augusta where apparently it was intended to be the centerpiece for memorial park with the consent of the relatives. Also in all kinds of rumblings around the time in the been on it was stated apparently the families had given their permission for this boats to be used or some families are given their permission. I mean gardeners specific. But that will talk of permission. But now there's the boat the biennale a now say they have been hassling buco since november last year to bring this boat back to honor his agreement to honor the contract with cillian town of august. Gustave saying they want the boat back as well now sources close to buco say that because he never talks to the press which is another thing we can talk about minute They say apparently the boat was damaged in transit coming venice so it's going to be impossible until the cradle support is fixed for it to come back again to augusta so buco is now trying to get insurance to pay for this either from the benaroya. Who said no go away or probably problem rudely or indeed from the shipping company. But i mean. I would say that you know only ethics about whether you actually share bin ali or not. I felt squeamish. I think we're dead. People are concerned it starts to get very problematic. Any put all those ethics to one side. You honor the agreement to the families you on the agreement to the place from whence you lent it and if and if the cradle got caught up and pay for it or you make your gary who house involved not show for penny or two to cough up and pay for it you know. I draw lines more lines in the sand. Whatever want feels about artworks raising profile of terrible crises. Apparently there's talk about taking the boat to brussels to show how come the the eu have been ignoring the immigration crisis. I mean lofty motives. But you know this is a place where over thousand people died.

You can figure out if you're gonna be a pilot toward the end of the program in You know it's needs of the navy. And all that kind of stuff so so turned out.

"To be a lot of trouble so this train driver got all freaked out and he attempted to Ram. Looks like a freight train of some kind of locomotive. He tried to and succeeded in derailing. This locomotive and his intent was he wanted to try to ram the U. S. Naval Hospital ship that is currently docked in the Los Angeles harbor. And I haven't seen any further details on this but the guy made statement about how well we we have to show what's really going on. People don't really understand what's going on and I don't know what this guy thinks but I mean I think everybody knows that there's a hospital ship. Everybody knows what's there now. Note on that Audio that I just played if you listen closely for one thing. I don't understand this at all. And this was their audio this nothing to do with me. But when they go to the chopper Dave. He's his microphone. Audio is coming in one channel. What kind of you know professional Shit non-professional shit show are the running over there these TV stations? And if you listen closely you can hear the reactions of the two in studio anchors. And I don't know if that's normal for that particular broadcast or if they just didn't have you know. Somebody forgot to close the mics. I thought that was just kind of funny and yet chopper. Dave refers to the ship is having non Covas patients. So there's already a whole bunch of stuff in year that if you're conspiracy theorist you can spin into fantastic yarns because cove is sounds like an insurance company or something. There are two of these large naval hospital ships. One is parked off of New York. The other parked off of Los Angeles and their plan is not to use them for Cova or Cova patients. They're just going to provide kind of overflow to the hospitals for other things. The assumption is the hospitals are getting get swamped with a surge of Kovic Slash Covas patients. But you know people are still going to have heart attacks and they're still gonNA be car accidents and all kinds of other stuff so we still need a place to treat those. So they've pulled these boats up to try and help with that and that's my understanding that these boats are rather impressive. They've got I think over a thousand hospital beds on them. They've got like twelve operating rooms. Good that they're out there. But then this guy decides he's GonNa Ram his train into it very strange Speaking of cargo.
