"Example ingram spark and start showing your book. Pretty much everywhere. You can only sell it through amazon so sort of. Keep that miami you get some higher profit margins and you can actually do a lot more in terms of really weird marketing and like say you evanger amazon advertising but the just something to keep in mind so the plus minus situation so but overall when you you pronuncia in the end it's got lace. It got a huge number of advantages. You have to make sure that the quality is acceptable for you because some of the print on demand places are a little iffy on the quality. So keep that in mind. Like said vaughn line here is the basically only doing the printing when the book actually soared. This is anita plus everybody but at the same time it sometimes. There's a quality issue to try to keep that in mind. I need to backtrack for just a sec. One of the other cool things about going through a traditional publisher is team. Evanger their imprint. If you're going through random house hey also become an print of random house if you're going through scholastic you've got to scholastic logo. This is a major selling point of itself.

Ut angie reputation of that traditional publishing house and it actually helps yourselves again being sub because we are looking at the hybrid publishing services.

"We don't really know how the data is being collected. Amazing that we're this is the curate here going into mass production. And this is going to save and change the world. So you hold a blow dryer in front of your face and you inhale with your nose and it kills all the viruses in your nose and then I see the disinfectant. Not up in a minute. One minute, and is there a way we could do something like that? To be clear. That is all misinformation it might make for a laugh. But a potentially deadly disease is anything but funny. A new study from Cornell University finds that the main drivers of all this misinformation are just a small handful of sources and at the top of the list. President Donald Trump. Sarah Vanja is the study's lead author. He looked at 38 Million articles in the English language, traditional media and within that pool about 1.1 million articles contains some kind of misinformation, and when we drill down further, we see that there are about 11 sub topics that really dominate the misinformation landscape. And within those 11 sub topics, there is one that is by far the biggest some topic miracle cures. And when we drill in further and look at those miracle cure topics, which included hijacks a clerk when you ve disinfectant. What we see is that often associated with particular people of global prominence in particular the president, United States. So what role is President Trump's social media feed playing not just in the U. S. But globally like how do people outside the U. S pickup on Trump's misinformation? You could also ask question. What role is the media really playing in amplifying the voices of a small number of people who happen to have a big platform? We found that 16% of the coverage was actually fact checking, which is great. And so I think, as we approach a potential second wave oven in photogenic just as we have, you know, approached a second wave of the pans on it. And as vaccines begins to become available, I think there's a really important role for the media to play and flattening that second inside Emmick Curve in Fode Emmick. That's a new word. It is and it was coined by the World Health Organization and, of course, with social media and access to so much information that we have today it really has become a serious concern in fighting the pandemic. Right. Another finding of your study, Sara was conspiracy theory is the idea that sinister group's heir behind the pandemic that accounted for almost half the misinformation cited what kind of conspiracy theories dominated. There were a range of different conspiracy theories that come up ranging from five G to bat soup a range of different things that sort of came and went over the period between January and May. Did you dive into the psychology of how misinformation spreads like? Why do people like President Trump pedal falsehoods? Is it ignorance or something more nefarious? I think it ranges to a great extent. I mean, there's certainly some groups that spread misinformation or disinformation for political gain our financial gain. But I think what we saw was that many of the topics that Miss Information's topics came and went and may have been amplified by French groups or not. But what was interesting was that the majority of the amplification really came from a very small number of prominent people with large platforms. What is being done to try to stop the spread of misinformation of false news? I mean, can it be stopped? I think that the media has a huge role to say. I'd love to see that percentage of fact checking that we saw in the study be a greater portion of the misinformation coverage around Cove in 19. I think the media has a tremendous role to play in preventing future in food, M IX and really being aware of the risk of false balance in reporting. And, of course, using Bonified experts of sources is really Keith. Sarah Evangel directs Cornell University's Alliance for Science. She's the lead author of a new study on the vast reach of Corona virus Misinformation. Sarah. Thank you for being with us. Thank you so much.

The Anti Defamation League describes his particular group as a quote. Dangerous strain of far right extremists, including members who are violent and some who espoused white supremacist views. In the right environment, Hateful ideologies, congest fester. Here's a concrete example of what I mean. It happened to someone you've heard about on the show a few years ago. Definite guys March had recently published a book about her Dutch Jewish grandparent's lives during World War two. They were given a hiding shelter from the Nazis in a church in Rotterdam. Daphnis mother, Miriam Guys Mar, then a girl was also in hiding. 2015. I met both of them to hear their story of survival during the war. The church is still there today with a plaque out front, explaining its role hiding Jews during the war. Where physically in the church, were they In the roof of the transit. Yes. Yeah, you're telling Miriam Geismar is talking to her daughter, Daphne. There. Daphne has become kind of the keeper of her parents and grand parents history. She knows their story. Well, the minister went to the caretaker of the church and said, I would like you to help me create a place for this Jewish couple to hide. The caretaker said. Well, I never told you this, but there's another Jewish family that's been hiding in the attic for a year already, so they made a second hiding place, so they were mirror images on either side of the organ pipes. That was in 2015. Since then, Miriam Geismar has died, and Daphne wrote a book called Invisible Years about the whole ordeal. Last month, Daphne was giving an.

"There was a very skilled bible teacher, who I know who was one time. Challenged by one of his students to make his teaching more simple. This particular student was known for being a carnal, Pharisaical radical. He was a religious zealot. He never seemed to go anywhere in his spiritual life. He said to his instructor. One day you're teaching is just too deep and the instructor wisely said, well, most of the other students get it. So the problem is not that my teaching is too deep. It's that your understanding as to shovel that student didn't have the ability to grasp. He didn't have the wits to get it because he was just like the Corinthians. He was karnal as I see it, the issue is not one of what you teach. It's one of what a person is able to understand. In other words, Colonel Christians will always be hung up on milk level things. No matter what you teach them all biblical teaching all, biblical doctrine, has a milk level, and it has a meat level in its instruction and understanding Colonel Christians are met threatened at milk levels of. Of things. In fact, there's one that you stay at Vanja Listrik things. They don't get to deep, they can get it. But if you start opening up the meatier things of the word of God, Colonel Christians aren't drawn to that. They like milk stuff and not meet Colonel Christians like teaching the talks about Jesus dying on the cross for sins and people should believe on him. They like reminders of judgment, and baptismal services, but they don't like to get too deep. The tragedy of all of this is that the Colonel Christian doesn't realize the reason he doesn't like the deep instruction of God is because God will let him understand it. He doesn't have the ability to grasp because God has shut him down. He see God expects his children to grow to become strong, and mature and, and meat eating believers. He wants them stable. He wants them grounded in those sixty six precious books and. Fact, people based, many of his rewards in eternity on whether or not his child came to understand his word and made a judgment in light of his word, but God will never allow one whose flesh in karnal to mature and have a great appetite for the word of gun, some congregate, and even some preachers, actually say, we just like to hear the simple things about Jesus. Well, that may in fact, be a serious statement of Carnell for the whole church. That's the kind of Carnell that was plaguing. The whole church at Corinth thing, we're liking simple milk things rather than meet things years ago. In one of our ministries. I was walking down the hall of one of our church, and as I walked down the hall, I noticed one of our little children's Sunday school classes in that particular class. There were these little chairs for the little children, and what caught my eye was that the grown teacher was sitting on one of those little chairs thou. Actually, it was a good thing for the teacher to do. She was sitting right with the children on one of those little chairs put it looked on. On it. Look funny when it comes to spirituality, there's nothing funny about such a picture. There's nothing funny about Christians who spiritually speaking are still Biblically doctrinal. He's sitting in a child's chair eating child's food such a person is Colonel needs to get right with God and needs to get growing brings us to the fourth question. What are the characteristics of Carnell in versus three to four? Pulse spells out the characteristics of Karnali for you are still flesh Lee. You are still karnal because since there is jealousy. And strife among you, are you not flesh Lee, and are you not walking like MIR men for when one.

Even if you don't know the name, you might be familiar with one of his most famous works of biting, satire called how to write about Africa one tip treat Africa as if it were one country. Another among your characters you must always include the starving African who wanders the refugee camp, nearly naked and waits for the benevolence of the west. When I was a fierce champion of African literature. Also vocal advocate of LGBTQ writes, he came out publicly in two thousand fourteen James Maria is a Kenyan journalist, he joins us now from Nairobi. Welcome to the program. Thank you very much. You actually knew Mr. y nine right? Can you tell us about your relationship will I, I met him in two thousand three I was doing magazine project and he was doing his project. He's journal, the quantity project. He was alleged in life finale. You actually walked into his life into his world. And it was one of those guys to useful to, and you, you left. They're thinking you could do anything. He came out publicly in two thousand fourteen in an essay called I am a homosexual and he put out a series of YouTube videos to accompany. At here's a little bit of one of those, I want this edition of beyond bidden of their kids. See Africans lighting that own stories, two stories. Act. I think the most political that one can have how radical was active coming out in Kenya at that time. How important was this essay it changed everything? I mean the thing about the essay was it came from the background where it wasn't just in Kenya about across the continent, west some really horrible legislation was coming out than Japan suggests criminalized being queer. Guns while walking on their own legislation those discussions. So I mean, the time he came out the most from Africa come out as being gay so he really really validated. A lot of people who do not have anyone look say, yeah. This is nothing natural for me to eat this week. I wanna come back to his essay how to write about Africa. He was asked about it in an interview with Al Jazeera about what he thought was wrong with the way the west talked about the continent. Here is probably the vast majority of coverage on Africa by the waste reinforces the existing idea. Existing narrative must be a dependent and collapsed place and then oh, maybe there's a good news story. If you're lucky, why did this make such an impact number one is because he was giving them a message that a lot of us have known a long time. People have often defense Africans know that we cover so he was speaking to us. Number one, number two, he gentleman, and he's able to convey, no. He's able to tell you why.

"So fresh, she's point was that it was not so far fetched that astrologer or even palmistry for that matter might not at some point, be recast. In more serious light, thanks to the emergency of psychology. So that's the way fresh e was was was looking at it. Yeah there's ambiguity where maybe it could still be a science. And she demonstrated that it was based on a strana me. And she also came off as like. A respectable middle to upper class woman who was not some like mystic who is like doing say, on or pretending to talk to the dead. She was actually calculating charts based on feminist and then making statements based on that win g in the trial goes to great lengths to emphasize that she was qualifying her statements, and she was not treating it as being completely deterministic. So that whatever's the admits she makes his cap is couched in the sense of this will definitely happen to you. But instead, that this was simply possible indications. There was this whole weird subtext of determine as them versus free will and signs versus causes was, which is an interesting like two thousand year long recurring, theme and issue in astronomical discussions and somehow becomes crucial in this trial. But the problem is that astrology in subsequent decades, by the sixties, and seventies would end up. Not becoming validated by science. And so that was the point where it could have gone either way for Vanja lean is all she was able to do is like kind of convinced this judge that it could qualify become validated at a science at some point, and therefore, might not just be fortune telling, but in reality, she was still doing fortune, telling in some sense, depending on how you define fortune, telling the fresh e story is fascinating. First of all, on most of the people who were brought in being brought in, for fortune telling where immigrants can write that. And that was that was an underlying thing that I got from this as well, that she was a affluent educated white woman, and that was part of what he not resonated with. But that's part of he judged. Her more favorably as a result of that. Whereas if showed. Well, no. What I would like to throw into that soup is that fresh e is a I, I generation Italian is current immigrants and was full name again because this is the judge. But I don't think we stated that explicitly the phone I am sorry going by his last night, but it's, it's, it's, it's fresh. She I can magistrate. Yeah he is first generation. Josh in John John J fresh. Yes. Yes. He's first generation Italian. So first of all, he's already got sympathy towards immigrants. Okay. Secondly, he if the police woman who sets up the sting, and he doesn't, he doesn't really like how that went down that she's saying that she made all these statements or whatever. And he's like, well, I'm having a five to ten minute conversation with MS Adams, and she can't get through sentence, without referring to a Saturn or urinals, ever conjunction. It's like there was an elaborate system here that she's referencing. You know. And so he felt that the, the police woman who was under teddy Roosevelt was being disingenuous that she was not giving a proper account of of what that was fresh. She was fascinating. He. There's one case in which this, I w w protester says that he lost his, he, he, he, he got passionate and got into a brawler whatever during a street political protest because he has an artistic temperament and said and fresh. She said, well, what makes you are tick. And he says, I write poetry. And he's like, okay, well, why don't you read some of your poetry out loud for me? So I can judge how artistic temperament is, so I she had the side to him. That was really he was curious and playful. And but also could be very, you know, sterner whatever. So he was very much intrigued by the eventually Adams walks away, feeling she had converted him to her side. No, he was intrigued actually by the judicial and philosophical argument that that was that was going on here with the strategy. And when you take into account that there were these techniques that were coming out where they're measuring people's skulls looking at fingerprints..

"But it's not gonna be amazing television. From that. I was pretty bored by this time. There wasn't much there. My my favorite moment from untucked with soju packing. Which means they found her luggage. Which which I I was gonna say maybe that's why Kahana had to wear the same bra because she impact another one in her carry on. And they didn't find your luggage. Imagine if you had to pack up Kimchi's trunk and out to that van not shit. The other couple of things I noticed from actually got a good amount of like topics in there for the half hour. It's interesting you mentioned survivor extinction before Liana comparing that to this where you have gone unless you in Raja being anti return, basically saying Vange already had a chance. I don't want him to be another Eureka situation. And then Vanja comes back and they faithfully say. Okay. Tell basically talk shade in front of Angie's phase they do in. Beijing knows that she's done -sarily loved by everyone there. Yeah. Yeah. That was the thing that happened. Something on that. They should think they're frigging lucky stars that it's vandy who came back because if it wasn't fancy there was going to be so other Queen in that spot. And if you're giving me my druthers about who I'd rather see I'd rather see a known quantity like Banji who I don't think has the chops to go like you should not be threatened by Vange scarlet and Raja like a wife. You are threatened by Banji. Then you've got another thing coming to you because any other Queen. They could've randomly cast in that spot could be better than her. So I'd gladly take my chances with Banji any day of the week. The other thing I'll mentioned it. So all the queen's come together and have one big picture with Miley Cyrus, and if you ever want a better microcosm of silky nutmeg nutmeg this episode leave it to her to after a photo bring all the attention back onto herself as she proposes to Miley Cyrus and asked her to buy her a cheeseburger. Yeah. That was also a thing that happened. So as we all learn out, an ex, hey, we all breathe in and breathe out. Coach by Miley Cyrus about this episode. Let's look ahead to what's coming next week. We are going into an acting challenge. The queens are challenged to act in drag Queen versions of blockbuster movies. Basically a version of Black Panther and to get out with guest judges side-on, the wild who actually was in Black Panther and Bobby Moynihan who wasn't in get out. But he's funny people fun. Do we expect anything from any of these queens in terms of doing well or doing poorly when it comes to our very first acting challenge of the season? Why I don't know what I'm expecting. But I'm excited for these two. It's not often that you have well first of all seven black queens on the season, which I wasn't aware of until sukey pointed out on the roscoe's VN party. She's like you come one of us. We're all gonna come for your ass. So that just says it's all the negative fans out there. But a to have these two great movies like best movies of last two years get out and Black Panther both headlined by people of color only. God I can't wait to see what they do. I hope they have a blast doing parodies of these tapping said that there's going to be hopefully, some pretty okay writing considering that what we're used to with these scripted things. It could go very very very very poorly. I feel like Black Panther and get out to like they have enough like in jokes that I think that it will make the writing very easy Liana or you love..

I was here for her energy. I think everybody on gay Twitter was all aboard the silky nutmeg Josh train for about the first five minutes of the show. And then we all got off. I also will say I'll highlight I thought Mercedes Eamonn diamond just looked. So I mean wish yours. Is she holding? She's holding Jerusalem her right hand. She just holding like a bunch of furs in her left hand. I think so she looks absolutely gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. And then she started talking, and she was like, yeah.

We're going to be looking up for these screens for the next several weeks on a you have something to say, okay. I have a I have a guess about a witch. Okay. So Mike said that he could recreate one of these confessional looks. And I want to guess who it is who. Okay. Yes. So I texted this to Liana that I was after watching the preview look at these confessional looks. I was able to recreate one of them using my own wardrobe. Okay. Is it, you know, us know. Oh my God. I wish I had that shirt. Oh, my. God is that Honey Devonport? Nope. It is not hunting Devenport. I wish I had that that might be one of my favorites, channeling guy earn ninety sitcom real nece. Yeah. Okay. Through strikes in euro, one more guests. Okay, crab. I don't know. Sugarcane? No, that's that's a nice loud color. Can you channel? Mike, I can share the one and only silky nutmeg nausea that orange shirt. Ten dollars. An old navy base. We gotta get you those glasses and the hat too. I own that exact shirt. And so I'm sure I can recreate it one of these days. But yeah, I was very surprised looks really cool curious to know Davenport. I love her hair. She has some Gerry Cole real news going on in that confessional. Look and gorgeous skin. I am. So here for that look. And she's I think she's wearing all black, and I love her voice, like her voice voices. Like, I love silky. She's she's talks as big as she is the she will talk your ear off. T- about how what's really going to happen? I'm like, oh my God. She's a frigging fortune teller because this entire episode was so key talking our era. These are. I mean, it's interesting coming from all sorts seasons into civilian seasons of drag rates for so many reasons, but one of them is it's so interesting coming from like the arguably over Monique heart with the Cal Brown. Cow stunning hat everything in confessional. What the cow on top of it to like Raja O'Hara wearing like attract suit, you know. And so it's a little tougher to comment on these. Specifically, I think even oddly. The hair get a new we know. How can I can? I mean, they aren't corn rows exactly, but they almost have that shape to it. Right. It's like corn row S. But like the driver was drunk and drove off to the side. But it's I I thought I was like maybe her heads. Just lumpy. Because I hear like so like it's so short. I don't know. That's some weird alien I would like to have some but. By new fetish alien head. Listen. That would have an alien fetish. It'd probably be oddly. So I think it's it's temperately on brand shoot up.

Could Genetics Grow a Square Tomato?

"Today's episode is brought to you by smart water twenty years ago. Smart water, reimagined, what water could be from thoughtful bottle designed to supporting smart people who are changing our world through fresh thinking. Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren vocal bomb. And if you wander the protas, I'll at your local grocery store, you'll find a dazzling variety of tomatoes from Charrier grape shaped to massive beef steaks and gnarly heirlooms same with squash potatoes, cucumbers and leafy greens. This bounty of diverse colors shapes and sizes isn't the result of natural selection. But rather human selection over millennia farmers and plant breeders have spotted useful mutations and fruits and vegetables, tastier fruit. Better yields novel shapes and preserved those traits through conventional breeding techniques the process is slow. But if you cross different strains enough times eventually you may create something new enough and marketable enough to be called its own variety. That's low and steady. Conventional breeding process is about to get a big boost from advances in genetic mapping with a tomato or cucumber genome in hand plant breeders, don't have to wait months for tomato plant to bear fruit to know, whether the tomatoes will be pear shaped or round. Instead, they can look for telltale markers and a seedlings DNA the code for specific fruit shape, size and color this technique of marker assisted selection promises to cut years off the traditional plant breeding process. One Esther vendor nap is at the forefront of genetic research into exactly how a plans DNA instructs fruit to grow long and lean like a hothouse cucumber or round and squat like a beefsteak tomato in her lab at the university of Georgia post, docs and undergraduates sliced tomatoes in half in place them on a flatbed scanner to measure the precise shapes and sizes produced by different genetic combinations. In a paper published in November of two thousand eighteen in the journal nature communications Vander nab announced the discovery of two. Families of genes that appear to play key roles and making fruits and vegetables, either round or long fruits and vegetables are technically plants edible organs and those organs grow and develop through cell division. She explained to make a certain shape like a long around shape, you need to have certain patterns of cell division. Either the cells divide horizontally, or they divide vertically, which makes sense the more Oregon cells divide horizontally by splitting down the middle. The more. They're going to build up tissue horizontally, creating a fatter rounder fruit. What Vander nap and her colleagues discovered in the tomato. Genome is a specific gene called ov- eight that appears to be responsible for creating proteins that tell cells to divide in a vertical pattern when more cells split side side, the growth pattern produces at en- long gated fruit. Ov- eight is the difference between a perfectly round cherry tomato and an oblong Plum tomato. Wild tomatoes, like the native varieties found in Peru. Ecuador and Mexico are invariably small and round says Vander nap which means pear shaped and other in long gated tomatoes are mutations that came along later as far back as the nineteen thirties. Plant biologists called the long Gatien mutation ov- eight but had no clue about the actual genetic mechanism behind it. But van nap and her team identified the ovation protein as well as another family of proteins called TRM's that interact with Lovie, and it provides another tool to plant breeders who are using marker assisted selection, if the ov- eight N, T R and markers are present. You can be sure the fruit will be in long gated if one or the other is missing. It's backed round evanger, nap says this will speed up the breeding process and let growers focus on trickier traits. Like yield and pest resistance that aren't as easily linked back to one or two specific genes. So now the question is do these advances in plant genetics mean that your produce Iowa soon include square tomatoes? Or pyramid-shaped pumpkins not likely says Vanja nap, but not because it's technically impossible. She says there are tons of bizarre mutations in the tomato. Genome that result in odds looking fruits and since those mutations are naturally occurring. They could be isolated and replicated in the lab, but the problem was square, tomatoes and other oddball. Shaped fruit is twofold. Internet says first there's the GMO problem if plant breeders use, gene editing to directly tweak or replace genes in food plants. Those strains are considered GMO and some people get freaked out by the GMO label, even though genetically modified organisms as category are no less or more safe than conventionally modified organisms. Second exciting new fruit and vegetable shapes may not shape up in other ways of Android apps said some mutations are so bizarre. That no grower would grow them because they have lots of other problems. They only have a few fruit per plant or they taste terrible. Because when you grow fruit in a really odd shape. You mess up the hormone balance, it may not be very juicy or tasty at all. If you really want to grow a square tomato says Vanja up just put a box round it like you may have seen done with other fruit. Like watermelons should those hit the scene at a premium price? You can always tried growing your own at home. There are plenty of instructions online for building your own square fruit boxes.
