Am I Radical Enough?
"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.
The beauty hall for 2020 is here
"All right. So normally, we always start out with skincare. We know that you guys are huge skin care junkies, but there's so much news make up that. Honestly we have to give it some love straight off the top, and we're going to start with none other than rare beauty, the new line by Selena. Gomez. Okay. So I did not get my package a curly, and so I'm very excited to hear what you thought of the line and what you think the winners are and just definitely part of this bigger trend we're seeing right of so many celebrities launching makeup lines right now. Yeah it's. True I feel like they used to be kind of like on the poster to represent like a new lipstick or something in these big campaigns, and now it's as though they've stepped out of the frame and they're really owning their own lines it really you know with Selena Gomez I know that health is a topic that's really close to her heart. So we know that one percent of the proceeds from this whole line is going toward increasing access to mental health services. So I, think just having like so much more integrity behind his lines as what makes them not just a flash in the pan. Committed to one hundred, million dollars over the next ten years. So that's a pretty big deal that's super exciting, and of course, we know that Sephora, is behind this line as well. It's exclusive to Sephora so although it's not one of the Kendo brands. So to speak I, feel like you know Sephora they get all that Intel from their customers they know what they want and they really brought a lot of I would say like. Thoughtfulness, to these formulations, I think that's where a rare beauty really wins. Okay. So let's hear about it because I know a lot of people were kind of comparing it to fantasy like one what's been your experience so far? What's what have you been? Loving. So my favorite product from the lot is the rare beauty liquid touch weightless foundation, and so that's the one everyone's going to compare it Fendi. It has forty eight shades except this one is only twenty nine dollars, which is cheaper than the fence is thirty eight dollars Canadian, and of course, it launched just at the beginning of September I really love it. So first of. All just tell you like what it is. It's meant to be a lightweight valuation that goes on Super. Naturally but it has quite a bit of pigment to it. So it will give you a medium to full coverage finish and I think we're all familiar with the bottle. We've probably seen it on instagram. It's as beautiful like it's got the sculptural shape to it. So it then bottle and then it has like this white ball on the top definitely GonNa look good on your shelf e and when you open it, what's really unique is its got this gigantic doe foot applicator like it almost reminds me of the applicators of those. Big Conceal that were coming ask chair. Yeah. Yeah and it's meant to be like a Serum Foundation. So you actually shake it and you can hear that click, click click inside and I'll be honest I've tried serum foundations in the past and I don't typically like them usually they come with a dropper and although there really lightweight there's like a slickness and an oiliness to it that I just do not like I I feel like that was like a a flash in the pan kind of a gimmick that I don't think those are going to last but this one goes on and it feels more just like a very lightweight almost. Watery Foundation without having any oiliness to it, but it is quite pigmented. So what you're going to do is you're gonNA put dots on your face like in the main areas where you won't coverage for me that would all over my tease own and then I, just used my beauty blender and blended in as usual and I really found it had a very natural second skin effect. So it's not particularly Matt it's not particularly Dewey it just looks Berry Notch, draw it kind of reminded me of the Bite Beauty Foundation that I really fell in love with lots year that all clocks right because it likes under Sephora I'm sure they definitely Yeah, armed each other. Well, I mean Sephora. So as an example, Nour's launched a soft Matte Foundation this fall as well, and the publicis actually told me that that was in collaboration with Sephora and that they were using all of the feedback from their customers to tell them what they wanted So that was a very different foundation. It's quite matt more like the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush break by yes. A We know that they're kind of feeding into that and that just makes sense I mean Celinas. Not a makeup artist. Maybe, she has van Gogh helping our, but obviously, they're going to be using the power of their knowledge to create these formulas. So I love this foundation I think it's so natural. This is like a new favorite for me but I think it's really representative of the line like what I noticed just having tried quite a few products is that it's like taking existing ideas like for example, the lip souffle Matt lip cream we all know a liquid matlab color, but this one just went on, it gives you a soft finish. And it's so comfortable. But what I liked is it wasn't thick. So they managed to get that pigment without having that thickness like I can never get a clean line with a Matt liquid color. I always have to use my finger to blended then and then you don't get that that nice shape to it. So this when you do so everything was like, yes already out there but this is so thoughtful and it's just slightly better
Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success
"Hi. I'm Elise Hugh. And you're listening to Ted talks daily today's talk features really fascinating research that cuts us all some slack. What I mean is it turns out you can be a late bloomer in your chosen sport or skill or specialty, and it's actually better for you in a lot of ways. The talk is journalist David Epstein at Ted Ex Manchester in twenty twenty. So I'd like to talk about the development of human potential and I'd like to start with maybe the most impactful modern story of development. Many of you here have probably heard of the ten thousand dollars rule maybe you even model your own life after it. Basically, it's the idea that the become great anything takes ten thousand hours of focused practice. So. You'd better get started as early as possible. The poster child for this story is Tiger Woods. Father Famously, gave him a putter when he was seven months old at ten months, he started imitating his father's swing. At to, you can go on Youtube and see him on national television fast forward to the age of twenty one he's the greatest Golfer in the world's quintessential ten thousand dollars story. Another that features a number of bestselling books is that of the three Polgar sisters whose father decided to teach them chests in a very technical manner from a very early age and really wanted to show that with a head start and focused practice. Any child could become a genius in anything, and in fact, two of his daughters went onto become grandmaster chess players. So, when I became the Science Writer at sports illustrated magazine I got curious if this ten thousand hours rules correct then we should see that elite athletes get a headstart in so-called deliberate practice. This is coached air correction focus practice not just playing around, and in fact, when scientists study lead athletes, they see that they spend more time in deliberate practice not a big surprise. When they actually track athletes over the course of their development, the future leads actually spend less time early on in delivered practice in their eventual sport they to have what scientists call a sampling period where they try a variety of physical activities. They gain broad general skills they learned about their interests and abilities and delays specializing until later than peers who plateau at lower levels. And so when I saw that said, Gosh that doesn't really comport with the ten thousand hours rule does it. So I started to wonder about other domains that we associate with obligatory early specialization like music. Turns out the patterns often similar. Research from a world class, Music Academy, and what I want to draw your attention to is the exceptional musicians didn't start spending more time into practice than the average musicians. Until Third Instrument, they tended to have a sampling period. Even musicians we think of is famously precocious like Yo, Yo Ma he sampling period he just went through it more rapidly than most musicians do. Nonetheless, this research almost entirely ignored and much more impactful is the first page of the Book Battle Hymn of the Tiger mother where the author recounts assigning her daughter Violin. Nobody seems remember the part later in the book where her daughter turns her and says, you picked it not me and largely quits. So having seen this sort of surprising pattern in sports and music. I started to wonder about domains that affect and more people like education and economists found a natural experiment in the Higher Ed Systems of England and Scotland in the period studied, the systems were very similar except in England students had to specialize in their mid teen years to pick a specific course of study to apply tours in Scotland they could keep trying things in university if they wanted to and his question was who wins the trade off the early or the late specializes and he saw that the early specializes jump out to an income. Lead because they have more domain specific skills, the late specializes get to try more different things and when they do pick, they have better fit or what economists call match quality, and so their growth rates are faster by six years out erase that income gap. Meanwhile, the earliest specializes start quitting their career tracks in much higher numbers essentially because they were made to choose. So early that they more often made choices. So the late specializes lose in the short term and win in the long run. I think if we thought about career choice like dating, we might not pressure people to settle down quite so quickly. So this interested seeing this pattern again in exploring a developmental backgrounds of people whose work I had long admired like Duke Ellington who shunned music lessons as a kid to focus on baseball and painting and drawing or Mario Mir's economy who wasn't interested in math is a girl dreamed of becoming a novelist and went on to become the first and so far only woman to win the fields medal the most prestigious prize in the world in Math Vincent Van Gogh had five different careers, each of which he deemed his true calling before flaming out spectacularly, and in his late twenty s picked up a book called the guide to the ABC's of drawing. That worked out. Okay Claude Shannon was an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan who took a philosophy course just to fulfill a requirement and in it, he learned about a near century old system of logic or was true and false statements could be coded as ones and zeroes in solved like math problems. This led to the development of Binary Code, which underlies all of our digital computers today.

"To go next store to the hotel to use the public toilets which were set to be squalid and extremely disgusting. So this is not exactly my idea of heaven but to Van Gogh. Ever wanted. Van Gogh. Himself wrote of the place quote in this meaning the House and surroundings I can breathe meditate and paint I feel that I can make something lasting out of it. and quote. nathe and Smith. Add to this when they write quote Vincent Cy. Garden of Eden where the Greenery was lush and the sky overhead always quote intensely blue as van Gogh himself described it. Van Gogh wrote to family members telling them that he had thought the park with the prostitutes in the bushes was delightful and that he enjoyed watching the sunrise through his windows in the morning from what he could also see what he called a pretty public garden. And quoted. Again, this speaks to the way that Van Goghs saw the world he saw beauty in places that others didn't or couldn't. And as soon as Van Gogh sign the lease where rent was a pittance by the way at just fifteen francs a month or about seventy five dollars a month in today's dollars based on the conversions that I saw. As soon, as he signed the lease, he went to work fixing the place up a bit. And the most famous piece of that rehabilitation was the coat of paint that he applied to the exterior and the. Interior walls. Van Go refer to this coat of paint as quote the yellow color of fresh butter. and quote. He then painted the shutters of the House Green to set off a nice contrast. And just as soon as the place was ready, Van Gogh vocalized the next step in his plans for the yellow. House. Stayed in quote. I could quite well share the new studio with someone. Perhaps Gauguin will come south. and quote. Now again here is obviously referring to the now famous French painter Paul Gauguin. Now Gauguin. Took just like van, Gogh would for the most part be unappreciated while he was alive. But his work would eventually become some of the most valuable and sought after pieces in the art world with one of his painting selling for close to three hundred, million dollars in twenty fifteen making it the most expensive painting ever sold for a time. And it should be noted that Gauguin was also a major influence on Pablo Picasso. But returning to our story of Van Gogh and again. Van Gogh and go Gan had met in Paris, a year earlier in eighteen, eighty seven and they had met at an art exhibition that Van Gogh himself had organized. A hundred pieces of Van Gogh's work alongside a few other artists was displayed at this exhibition and Gauguin attended. Gauguin had never seen van Gogh's work before and vice versa. But the two eventually connected after the exhibition and they decided to exchange paintings and potentially work together at some point. And Van Gogh's brother Theo also bought some of Gauguin's pieces further solidifying his connection to Van Gogh, and their future plans. and. So finally following up on their plans to work together in the fall of eighteen, eighty eight. Paul Gauguin moved to Arl and into the Yellow House with Van Gogh. But. UNBEKNOWNST to the two of them. This was a recipe for disaster. And here again is where our story starts to pick up steam. The reasons they're working together was a recipe for disaster are quite simple..

"Why on Earth, did you cut off your ear and give it to a prostitute as a gift? And that thought has bounced around in my head for many years. And it turns out that most of what I thought occurred on that night was not exactly correct. And so finally, I wanted to know the real story behind this famous event. And, that my friends was the genesis of this episode. Most people don't know this. In all honesty, most people don't know when to place the event. They just know that at some point in his life Vincent Van Gogh Cut off part of his ear. Some people think it was as holier. To place it for you though. The event occurred at the very end of his life about eighteen months to be exact before he committed suicide. And his life wasn't a very long life either van Gogh was just thirty seven years old when he walked into that field in France, pulled out the gun and pointed it at his chest. And for the vast majority of that thirty, seven years on Earth Van Gogh epitomized the idea of the tortured artist. In fact, if you simply google the term tortured artist, which we've all heard before van Gogh's picture is the first one that you'll see. And here's something else most people don't know even though Van Goghs life was relatively short his productivity from a painting standpoint was incredible. Put it this way. Van Gogh didn't really start painting with any serious consistency till as late twenties I think it was twenty eight to be precise if my review of his catalog is accurate. Before that he spent time as an art dealer and then a Protestant missionary all the while dabbling with the idea of becoming an artist himself. And then finally at the age of twenty eight, he went for it. So, if van Goghs started painting when he was twenty eight and then died at thirty seven. Let's call US productivity period about a decade long. And it is said again, if my reviews catalog is correct that Van Gogh produced around nine hundred oil paintings during that decade of work not to mention the other thousand plus drawings and such that he also put forward. But focusing on the nine hundred paintings as that's where his major contribution to art was and what he is known for. Of those nine hundred or so paintings a substantial portion of them were completed in the last two to three years of his life with nearly all of his most famous and his most valuable paintings today being produced during that last two to three years of his life and this includes starry night sunflowers cafe terrace at night starry night over the Rhone Bedroom Arl and many of his most famous self portrait S-. And perhaps, there is some connection here and in my opinion for what it's worth their most certainly is that the most explosive period in his life from painting standpoint is also the most chaotic and tumultuous part of his personal life. But the underlying theme of Van Gogh's entire existence was one of mental suffering in some form or another. It is well known that he suffered from depression on and off for most of his life compounding this issue was the fact that van?.

Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix.

"van gogh" Discussed on Revisionist History
"TAXES DOT COM. Experience Amazing. Alexa Steele. So back to Claude. Who has a child fled Europe with his family. About fifteen years ago, Allen started asking the museums holding hedwig art to do a version of what Charles Venable at Indianapolis or what Randy Frost tries to teach hoarders. To break their attachment to a specific object by asking a broader question about its relationship to their own values. In essence, all in told the museums Mike Grandmother and her family sold some of their prized possessions in a moment of desperation and panic. To help finance their escape from certain death. Are you sure you feel right about owning it an object with that kind of history. Allen started with the Gauguin Street into Haiti and the Van Gogh the diggers that were once owned by Hedwig, brother and sister-in-law. All in a group of his relatives approached the Toledo Museum and the Detroit. Institute of art with their requests. The family was forced to give these paintings up under duress in nineteen, thirty eight. Could they get back. And what happened? The two museums. And sued the all it's. That was in order to, and this is one of those wonderful legal euphemisms. Quiet the title to the painting. And when the case went to court the museums, one on the narrow grounds, the statute of limitations had expired. According to the Federal Court, in Detroit, the case would have been valid only if they had filed a claim for the diggers. Three years of when the painting was for sold. It was sold in nineteen thirty eight, so they needed to ask for back by nineteen forty one. When those members of the family who had not managed to flee for their lives were sitting in concentration camps. Allen had asked museums to consider the morality of their attachments. They responded by pointing to the legality of their attachments. They don't WanNa. Make this about values. No hoarder would. Consider the story of another Van Gogh. A spectacular painting called the night cafe. It was once owned by a Russian collector. The Bolsheviks seized it when they took power in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine. It's worth hundreds millions today later it was sold by the Soviets to the air to the singer sewing machine fortune. The Soviets collected a huge profit. The air later willed it to Yale University Art Museum. Then, the original owners descendant came together and said that painting was stolen from my great-grandfather. Did y'all. Give it back of course. They soothe the great grandson and one. There is a Picasso and the. Metropolitan, museum in New York called the actor worth well over one hundred million dollars. It had been owned by Paul and Alice left man, a Jewish couple in Cologne Germany who fled for Italy in nineteen, thirty seven sound familiar. They sold the painting to pay for their escape. Their great granny sued the Mat to get it back saying that it was given up under duress. The court. Ruled in favor of the met. The judge in the case said that the left men's weren't technically duress because duress for the purposes of the law requires quote, fear induced by a specific and concrete threat of harm, purposefully presented by its author to extort the victim's consent. In other words in order for the Left wants to get their Picasso back and official in the Nazi party would have had to come to them. In one, thousand, nine, hundred seven, put a gun directly to their head and say Sell Me Your Picasso. And because the fascist shows to be a touch more subtle in their methods of extortion.

Remember, can you describe what what happened? When he first, I would have cried. Yeah he was quite emotional and he was quite emotional about. This aspect and we had several conversations I read, and and he would cry nearly every single time. Yeah Yeah Yeah is it a beautiful painting? Yes, yeah, it is. It's a beautiful painting, but it also. Starts to complete. The circle within our family. The stories we would tell because. Hedvig had a a room where the they hounds Toma Works. It was a dining room and they were painted around the room and. Hans Homma I think was one of the oddest. She loved the most so to have. A worker turned was was it was like almost a completing of the circle and Yeah, it was. It was deeply meaningful..

"Few. People know the real story of this intense strong men. Now, his tumultuous career is revealed for the first time with. Sunday. With all. If you look at the corner of the movie poster for for life there, it is fozzard carnations. But by then gets sold it. He didn't hang onto his van Gogh the way he did his other treasures. It wasn't for him. The painting pass to the heirs to the K. Mart Fortune Catherine Kreisky. Who Am I? GonNa things was once married to a Swedish baron. She convinced him to leave London and come live with her in her native Detroit. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Swedish barons order for Miss Kresge did not survive the move to Michigan. When Kresge died in nineteen ninety, she willed vase with carnations to the Detroit Institute of Art. She gave it without restriction. Meaning the dia bone could do what they wanted. Sell it traded didn't have to make it part of their permanent collection. Kresge clue didn't care anymore for the painting and it. And neither did the DIA. They put in a basement for twenty years. Vincent Van Gogh painted many remarkable canvases. This is now one of them. You also painted larger flower still lives in Perez, but this one thus. kind of canvas which I think was not meant for sale, or as a present for acquaintances or girlfriends, or has models, or so it was just for trying out. Things are experts like to damn with faint praise vows with carnations gets a lot of faint praise. It's very nice. It's very profound, but it's not a very well. Spectacular. Composition or color combination. It's just kind of let me try out what happens if I this if I do this and so it's nice, but not really an important work. The current head of the Detroit Institute of art, Salvador's solar. Pons says the problem is advised with carnations. Just doesn't look like a van Gogh when you say it doesn't look like Van Gogh. What me say, look like sunflowers. I mean he's not a typical work. Like. You would like the tough portrait. Or the works that he did when he was in the south of France, the most famous works. that. The? General Public knows Van Gogh. Did then there's the fact that the painting had a stamp on the back a sign that it was painted on a fancy bit of stretch canvas. Then go in his Paris. Here's was broke. What was he doing with a fancy canvas? It took years to resolve that particular discrepancy. And in the meantime, lots of people began to think vase with carnations was a fake later, we discovered that that canvas with. The Stop on the back was not actually part of the work was added later. So you had the original campus then you have. Lining cameras glued to the regional canvas, and then you had these third cameras. We stencil stamp of EVAC. So once we remove that. We understood that was not part of the original work. So here we have then go. The does not look like a van Gogh. That was never intended to be sold or shown or even given away that a German couple bought somewhere around the turn of the century, and then sold that turned up in the home of Hollywood mogul, and served as a prop in a Kirk Douglas. Movie poster then finally landed in Detroit with a K. Mart heiress, who threw it in as an afterthought when she made her bequest to the DIA. Whereupon the painting languished in a cellar for a quarter century. Of a dubious bit of. Glued to the back. What's your personal feeling about this painting? Do you like it. Are you drawn to? I like it because I. Have a personal story connected to it, you know when I came to the museum. The maintain wasn't a storage. As an attributed painting by Van. Gogh with basically no value. I was able to bring an up to the galleries and put it together with other four van Goghs that the has. Awarded I. IT looks like by a Sunday painter. US consider by by forger. Would have no value, no monetary value, but the minute we consider it as by handle. It has a value of several million dollars. However, the has not changed. The painting continues to be what it is. What has change? Is the perception that we have on the painting. And that is a really interesting concept to think about. So, I liked the painting a for that. Yeah, but if someone said to you when you retire, it's director. You can take one of the DA's Van. Goghs with you. Which one would you take, not this? So why should we care about vase with carnations? We shouldn't. It's not the painting that matters. The painting is just a macguffin. CABOT. In case you don't know what I mean by macguffin. Let's consult the Dick Cabinet show nineteen seventy two. Candidates guest is the legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock the great proponent of McGovern's. Explain, what a macguffin I`Ma Goffin. You see in most films about spy. Is the thing that the spies are often? In the days of Roger Kipling. Will be the plans of the Fort on the Khyber Pass. I would be the plans of an airplane engine. And the plans of an atom bomb, and like it's always called the thing that the characters on the screen worry about the audience don't care. The macguffin is used to propel the plot to motivate the characters, but which has no intrinsic value to anyone else. Vase with carnations is a macguffin. It's described in a scene in English train going to scoff. One man says to the other opposite implicit. What's that package about your head? There? Now elements? Oh, that's a macguffin. It's what is a macguffin. Is Operatives for. Trapping lions in the Scottish highlands. Mansi Berar new lands in the Scottish highlands each other. Then that's no macguffin. Thank you for clearing that up. I repeat. It's not the painting that matters. That has always been a mistake. The way people have thought about vase with carnations. No more mcmuffins? After the break. Let's start the story again..

Trump takes on twitter, social media with executive order
"President signed an executive order stripping big tech of its immunity I'm gonna explain this to you as best that I can and I can explain it I just want to do this is to singly as possible basically boils down to this big media companies like Facebook Twitter I would soon you too Google some of these they have immunity from the lawsuit and you say well how can this be an embarrassing we have it is me well the reason is is because they're supposed be acting as a platform but if you act as a publisher like a newspaper or a radio station near talk show or television whatever if you do Vance then you're not immune from lawsuits because what you're doing now is actively participating the content and you're responsible for the content when you do that so if your platform and you say okay we have a platform and anybody can go in post whatever they want to we can't possibly police all of this stuff well that's what Congress said years ago we're going to carve out an exemption for you because you can't possibly police all the stuff we want a free flow of ideas and we're not gonna have a free flow of ideas if a platform turns into a publisher in other words of a platform is an editor of content there we're not gonna have a free flow of ideas so it was initially intended to protect you and have your freedom of speech protected but what it's turned into is been a shield for these big companies like Twitter and Facebook to be able to do exactly what they want supposed to do which is edit your content and get away with it so the president just stripped him of that today and it's sort of complicated because it sort of goes to the FCC but it's got the justice department element in there too and this is about civil lawsuits so let's just say I put up something about Johnny beat today and I say the Johnny B. as a whatever I mean I mean the same thing goes into the van Gogh listed was that you're trying to be was I did that one time a boy just coming in reverberated around of people came back you said so I said I that was used as examples of Joe so I'm I'm whatever I say about Johnny bean ends up not being true now if I put that on Twitter leading sue not only me being sued Twitter for allowing it up there because they have crossed the line from being a platform to being an editor slash publisher that was their own choice to make and what cross the line for trump is when they started doing to him another man during the rest of us were and that's why I said you know this guy gets hacked off now with that being the him we should have done this a long time ago but he's done it and I'm sure it's going to be challenged in the courts but I don't see how Facebook or Twitter or E. or you to renew the I don't I don't see how they win I also believe it goes this record another win on you know they get the ninth circuit court of appeals or some you know some of these folks is that these courts are packed with liberals who knows what they'll get from them but if you if you talk about common sense is pretty straight forward the law says that if your platform that you have immunity from from lawsuits but if you're not a platform if you become a publisher or an editor and I think by anybody's definition when you flag something and say this isn't true as they did with trump on Twitter you're becoming an editor I mean that's the clearest definition of it you're in a court of law and say well what do you think this is and they'll go well I. D. we just it was a flag no it's in you made an edit on this platform when you delete somebody and say you can't you can't tweet that that said that it when you when you go on Facebook and you say and I try to put a move which have not us we posted that the video from epic times about the Wuhan lab you know this is early on in this thing and they said you before you click on the thing this is been proven to be not true of course now it's proven to be true but at the time they were telling us it wasn't true and you sure you want to watch this video is the way it was set up and then you go to click it well that's editing that's editing when they inject themselves into the process if they put themselves in between the poster and the user then they are an editor that's a textbook definition they are becoming an editor and so they go to any court and I even the liberal courts are going to say you of course you're an editor and if you're an editor you no longer immune that's what the statute says that's what the law says if you become an editor or publisher you're not immune from lawsuits so you can be now wide open being sued which is going to happen people have been trying to sue Facebook and Twitter for years over content and they've been protected within no longer protected and it's of their own design and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks I'm just telling you so what happens from here that I don't know I don't know what what is going to happen from here but it could very well be that Twitter and Facebook shape up and they say okay all right let's say all right if we if we if we don't do this anymore where you give us back our immunity and I'm sure trump will say yes I would that's all he wants is you to stop **** with people stop injecting your political a bias by the way let me play because I play this early but this I mean knowing what you know right knowing what Facebook does knowing that they have I mean they have a long history of doing this this is what Zuckerberg I'm here again just the case of the epoch times video that I put up there and that other people but of the year and then they they graded out and said are you sure you want to watch is because and you need to click here because this is not true of course it ends up not being true but they were telling us it wasn't true that's them editorializing right that being arbiters of truth here's what mark Zuckerberg said on CNBC I don't think that Facebook or or internet platforms in general should be arbiters of truth I think that's a kind of a dangerous line to get down to in terms of deciding what is what what is true and what isn't well you've already done it you are the arbiters of truth just because we don't want to be determining what is true and false it doesn't mean that that politicians or anyone else can just say whatever they want I want to listen to that one again that means listen to what he says just because we don't want to be determining what is true and false it doesn't mean that that politicians or anyone else can just say whatever they want just because we're going to be arbiters of this doesn't mean the politics you can say whatever they want of course they can say whatever they want it's called free speech what are you talking about of course they see they don't the they've got some gray area and the gray area is not on social media the gray area in their head is on constitution what is allowed and what is not they think that they don't understand the freedom of speech so when they say the arbiters of truth it's their truth so they're saying what are the arbiters of truth I mean this is a known true like global warming for one thing of course we got to get rid of these deniers because that's a lie and we can't allow lies on our platform that's where they this this is how they justified in their mind they think okay well we can't we can't allow false information I mean you're not so you're certainly not saying that we can all fall out false information and so we got to get rid of wrinkles while false information to them as anything they disagree with that's what they've got in their heads they don't understand that I have a right to my opinion about global warming and they can say well this is untrue or whatever but I can say it's true all day long we can argue about it but they think that if they think I'm wrong that that I'm wrong and therefore they have a right not to let me be heard they have a fundamental misunderstanding of the first amendment they don't understand what it means at all it doesn't mean that it doesn't mean you get this you get to shout me down or quiet me if what you hear me saying you don't think is true it doesn't matter what you think I have the right to be heard now that's on a platform I have a right to be heard if you have a news thing or you have an editorial policy whatever then you're an editorial of the entity you're no longer platform but if your platform then everybody should be able to voice their own opinion and you should not have anything to say about it all you're doing is allowing them eight platform I mean that's what that means our platform is a place where people can go and voice their opinions and so if your platform use leave all that alone that's what it was intended to be and as we said over the last few years what the social media folks have turned into its arbiters of truth exactly what Zuckerberg said that they want but that's exactly what they are but the truth is in their own hands and so they can see that's the thing and I will tell you this about anything I don't have any problem with somebody going on Twitter in saying the earth is flat I think it's a line and I can probably demonstrated but what's the harm of having somebody go on and say the earth is flat and have people debate them about it well there's no harm whatsoever but you put something up about this plan that make thing out there and say that something quite right in that the the other thing may have come from a lab in Wuhan and blah blah blah and they go out of their way they got to shut it down it makes you wonder what
See great art from app in living room
"Museums are closed right now. Due to the Kobe crisis but Brennan Echoes. Got Some ideas on how we can still see some beautiful art through a new a our APP that he's going to tell us all about a company called museum and he's going to tell us about bringing a using a are to bring great art into the home. Hey Brandon eight Jefferson. Thanks so much for having me yeah. You're absolutely right. I mean Kobe. Nineteen has certainly sent shockwaves throughout all of our lives but especially in the world of art and Culture Museums about ninety. Seven percent of the world's museums have been closed and the great treasures and resources that they contain have been inaccessible to the masses and so we as a company that focus on helping the world's museums and cultural institutions connect with audiences all around the globe using the power of of digital using the power of technology. We had been thinking a lot. About what something we could do to bring. These works into the homes of people all around so that they could experience the artwork make it personal and really revel in these masterpieces from the convenience of their own home so we rolled out an augmented reality APP and feature that. Make it possible to bring these paintings into every single room in your home that you can see the works right up close in person so this first of all the name of the APP is the name of the APP is art museum. Ar T. Museum and it's available on Ios Ios and android right now it's available on Ios. But we do have plans to make it available for android devices as well. Okay so now. Let's tell everybody how it works. I'm in my living room. I've got a blank and have your APP in. I look up. Let Mona Lisa. Are you telling me? Yeah so we pick from some of the most famous works. That are available by public domain. So you can pick the Mona Lisa. Their works like the scream by Edward among Thurs works by Van Gogh So a lot of these great masterpieces that are in the collections of the met and the getty and the museums of Paris. We've made available Right in the right in your own home. We do have plans to start creating city specific tours Based on the great museums of New York and Boston Philadelphia L. A. And Go from there so we want to make it as relevant and personal To folks at home. So would you recommend the people go home and make find blanks place on the wall or take down some art to to have this experience. But yeah absolutely. If you're if you're interested in experiencing some of these some of our world's best art in culture that is currently locked behind doors closed due to the pandemic and and so on your download the APP Pick one of your favorite work. See How it looks in your living room or your or your kitchen. And you know overall I mean artfully such an important role in society. It's here in times like this and we encourage people to you know support these organizations take a look at the art and Um and hopefully it gives them a little bit of relaxation and inspiration Is the APP free? Of course we would never charge for something like that. Were very strongly believed that art should be accessible on. There shouldn't be an economic or financial barrier to this and we've also made this component free and available to the museum community so we're been rolling it out and in talks with dozens of organizations around the country around the world about how things like. This can help them play some sort of role in connecting people beyond you know social media beyond a two dimensional image beyond a livestream remind everybody the name of the APP so the name of the APP is art museum. A are as an augmented reality. T. Museum and I'm Brendan from Kuzan

"van gogh" Discussed on Personology
"Me today Stephen. Ninety working artist lawyer Pulitzer Prize winner and with his partner. Gregory White Smith is the author at the meticulously researched definitive biography. Van Gogh the life and your times bestseller well. After his death. Viewed as a genius Vincent was born March thirtieth eighteen fifty three in groot sundered in the Netherlands. The oldest son of Theodorus a Dutch Protestant minister and Anna. The daughter of a wealthy family. Vincent was the first of five children. He was really not the first pregnancy. There was a first vincent who basically died in childbirth essentially and something that was really devastating for his mother. They had named him. Vincent and so our Vincent essentially comes into the world already inheriting this sense of loss and distress from his mother growth and born a year to the day after the first visit. That first anniversary is very distressing to any mother who has lost a pregnancy literature sort of implies that the damage was to Vincent in imagining that he was the lesser of the two. Vincent's and we wondered if really the the damage was in his mother and his head. It was her constellation of regrets and frustrations and angers that he perceived and suffered from. That's what we call the replacement child and unfortunately it can become a self fulfilling prophecy when a mother imbues her replacement child as being the bad one essentially or not measuring up in some way it can become a self fulfilling prophecy for that child who lives day to day with the expectation and the transference from the parent. That they're not good where they're disappointing or they certainly don't measure up in some way for guy are vincent suffered from Lille so many problems all of layered on top of each other and If he had an assortment of mental afflictions and partly as a result would have disappointed his parents anyway. The fact that there was this previous Vincent and there was this replacement child syndrome would simply have magnified the parents Disappointment and who he was anyway. Many events in self-portrait showed evidence of head shape and facial deformity a topic. He referenced in letters he wrote specifically about the way other people viewed and reacted to him. It's likely that this was the result of a trauma during the process of birth. Which at the time was much more prone to accidental injury for the infant. And or the mother. Some of the psychiatrist. Who have tried to imagine. What the diagnosis should've been have said it was. It could easily have been congenital and one of my questions to you is the shape of his skull genetic or would it have been a trauma at the birth process. Do you think will given certainly had other siblings. Who didn't seem to have this issue going on and given that the shape of the head and not other sort of medical problems that go along with some sort of genetic syndrome. It seems likely that it was something that happened. In the birth canal now does not unusual that frankly ahead gets misshapen. When birth occurs and in normal circumstances it is something that sort of over the following days goes back to essentially normal skull shape. But sometimes if there's been some sort of trauma or child has sat too long in the birth canal something didn't work in terms of taking an out of the birth now there can be essentially what ends up being malformation and that can affect brain tissue. Which could be fine again. The brain is very plastic. It could recover but if there was some sort of damage and there was some sort of scarring scarring in the brain can set up someone for particular kinds of problems and we'll talk later about what those problems may have been for Vincent but it wouldn't be surprising if that was a nitis what we call a night or like an area of the brain where there was some scarring or something not quite right and that would set him up to develop certain symptoms. Later you and Greg documented a lot of information about the kind of kid. He was growing up. They were poor family but they were a very much class family.

Hey brain stuff lauren vogel balm hair someone gazing out at the ocean from the maine coast seized very different hues is them someone's squinting at the c. from sunny beach on a greek island but why does the ocean come in so many shades of blue of course ocean water is an inherently blue blue. It's clear that we see on the surface are the result of light being absorbed and reflected by the water itself. Whatever is floating and living in it and the surface of the ocean floor below low it a glass of water will of course appear clear as visible light passes through it with little to no obstruction but if a body of water is deep enough that light isn't reflected off the bottom it appears blue a basic physics explains why light from the sun is made up of spectrum of different wavelengths the longer wavelengths links appear to our eyes as the reds oranges while the shorter ones appear blue and green when the sun's light strikes the ocean it interacts with water molecules and can be either absorbed or scattered. If nothing is in the water except water the longer read portions of the spectrum tend to be absorbed by the water molecules whereas the light of those shorter wavelengths is more likely to go deep hit water molecules there and scatter back up towards her is making the ocean appear blue depth depth and the ocean bottom also influence whether surface appears a dusky dark blue as in parts of the atlantic or casts as safir like shimmer as in many tropical locations. We spoke nasa astronaut gene carl feldman. He said in greece the water is this beautiful turquoise color because the bottom is either white sand or white rocks fox. What happens is the light comes down and blue light gets down hits the bottom and reflects back up so you make this beautiful light blue color in the water darker sand rocks or other formations mean darker water. The color is further complicated by the fact that the ocean is rarely just water but is instead instead teeming with tiny plant and animal life plus suspended sediment or other natural orban made contaminants oshii offers monitor the oceans color the way that doctors read vital signs of their patients color seen on the ocean surface reflect.

It's when oceans become polluted runoff. The amount of phytoplankton can escalate late to unhealthy levels fellow painted feet on the pollutants flourish and them die sinking to the bottom to decompose process. The depletes oxygen from the water over the past fifty years oceans zones with depleted oxygen have more than quadrupled to an area roughly. The size of the european union part of the cause may be an increase increase in ocean temperature due to climate change since warmer water supports less oxygen in coastal areas phytoplankton blooms are suspected to be the cause title plankton may serve as the base of ocean food chain but as feldman says too much of a good thing is not a good thing on a map on feldman's office. Wall is a marker showing knowing where there's little human. Interference and ocean water is perhaps the clearest on the planet in this region off the coast of easter island in the southeast pacific ocean. The water is deep and remarkably clear due to its location in the middle of giant oceanic. I which is a large circular current. Its central location means. There's minimal mixing of ocean layers nutrients aren't pushed up from the deep bottom the purity of the water there coupled with that make the ocean appear a deeper indigo than perhaps anywhere else.

"A version of Vincent Van Gogh's iconic eighteen eighty nine sunflowers painting will permanently stay put in Amsterdam where is undergoing restoration. The director of the Van Gogh museum says a full body scan done and the museum's version of the painting is shown it's not fit to travel because it's in stable but vulnerable condition. The Amsterdam version of sunflowers is based on another version of the work painted a year earlier that's on display in London. Other versions of the work are in Philadelphia Tokyo and Munich director, axel ruger's told the Associated Press they've decided not to lend the picture anymore to other exhibitions or museums.

"In Paris Van Gogh left having painted more than two hundred paintings during his two years there on a pain. Yeah. He can't do anything half or even norm. It goes hundred a Honda if you will. So ill from drink suffering from smoker's cough in February eighteen eighty eight Van Gogh sought refuge in arl-. He seems to have moved with thoughts of founding an art colony like he was like, oh, it's gonna be me. And my bro- Zimmer. It'd be painting all the time. So the time and became one of Van Gogh's most prolific periods. He completed two hundred paintings and more than one hundred drawings and watercolors he was enchanted by the local landscape in light and his works from this period are rich and yellow alter marine and mauve actually yellow was Van Gogh's favorite color because he saw it as like his own personal representation of God. And light and holiness and beauty. And purity so yellow was like his shits like the sunflowers. Yes is flowers and a lot of his later work when he was like really deep into his mental in this. There's a lot of yellow. And it's like straight yellow right out of the tube. Like, very bright, very intense cadmium yellow, and we'll talk a little bit more about his use of paint in a bit.

"Fact to stop thinking. The of meditation. When I paint, I stopped thinking about what? Thinking. Feel. I'm a part of everything outside inside of me. When he says he he likes to paint because he stops thinking that's not sane thinkings bad. But a lot of his thinking is preoccupied with his failures with this social problems with his fear of his mental health. But when he's painting. He's connected to something. He's in movement. He finds what's attornal, and what's you know, temporal. And that is something that I relate to as a performer when you're doing a gesture, and you're not thinking what the gesture means or whether you're doing well, you're really inhabiting. The gesture that's when you're alive, you disappear into something greater than yourself so much modern understanding Van Gogh is kind of drawn along capitalistic lines. He didn't sell a painting when he was alive. He wasn't considered as excess because he didn't sell anything. And there's a great moment in the film where Van Gogh was talking to a. Priest played by Mads Mikkelsen. And he says God may be a painter for people who aren't born yet. The beautiful line. But it's also about the artist judging himself Van Gogh knows he's a good painter. I mean Gauguin tells them the same he knows he's good. He has his doubts. But he knows he has some e feels this vision that he wants to share and he's prolific. He's painting so much. He's connected. And that's not our invention. I mean, that's he painted a painting day toward the end of his life pretty much and also his letters show. How connected he was. So even if he wasn't getting money, even if he wasn't being recognized was there a satisfaction. As an artist that he was getting that may be an actor can understand. Do you start thinking about how we judge our own work as artists today against false metrics box office and awards while you don't because you know, you know, that things shift and in a similar way, we know even in my lifetime are movies that were total. Duds when they came out that have stood the test of time and had I've become important and appreciated later, and the the opposite is true as well things that we're huge success fade. You know, because it's always a convergence of many things that. Conspired to put value on on something as subjective as an entertainment or a piece of art. So is there a early sunflowers in your rear, the painting that nobody wanted to buy and you look why didn't people like that? It was really good work. I mean seriously performance that people like maybe they didn't pay attention to like that was one of my better paintings. But I don't have those kinds of judgments, but I do know listen for the experience there's movies that I enjoy that. I feel like they didn't get their Dane court or they weren't they weren't appreciated and there's other movies where I think and people love them. So good. Yeah. So it's not like I don't have opinions. I do and it's not like I don't have favorites. But I don't I don't lay them because I don't learn anything from those kind of judgment because I'm always trying to think about what I'm doing. And yes yourself critical but not self critical in intimidating the reception yourself critical in what is happening. How present you are how engaged you are whether you're distracted whether you're being corrupted. You know, I'm forever mindful of corruption, you know, I've seen it many times some actors get better some actors get worse, and they get worse because of certain corruptions, and how do you guard against that? Sit yourself down and slap yourself. I don't know just be. There's not a moral judgment. And in when I even hear myself talk. Now when I say batter where it's his I feel a little ridiculous. But I think it's a it's a personality thing, you know, you go to the sweet spot you go to the spot where you feel helpful or useful or turned on. Or you're part of you know, it's not. It's not a game of doing this to get that. It's doing this to do this. That's what I try to keep returning to one of the things that this film seems very intentional about as it ends is not giving the audience, easy answers. This is going to be a mystery. And it does feel that the point of view of this movie is that Van Gogh was really alive and wanted to continue to be alive and wanted to continue to paint..
