A History of Women and the Olympics
"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing. Equestrian and croquet only golf and tennis. Had all women
Cross-Cultural Casting: Noteworthy for Hollywood, but Not Exactly New
"The conventional criticism of diverse casting is that it violates some unspoken rule about realism. It's utterly one way traffic. He will not be getting any white people. Playing fellow lay anytime soon. If there's a bio-pic nelson mandela will not be played by a white actor. This is gum. That's the view on one british. Talk show anyway. But as npr's film critic bob mandela explains cross cultural casting has always raised eyebrows even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century bc when the greek playwright escalates needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy or sta he picked the god apollo choice. You do not make. If you're worried about vera similitude in casting live theater has always assumed. The audience can make imaginative leaps whether it's depicting warrior kings who rant or founding fathers who wrap shots. Hamilton of course is a special case. It's a broadway musical famous. Not just for putting hip hop in the mouths of thomas jefferson and george washington but for matching black and brown faces to those historic white characters. Every time i write a piece of theater. I'm trying to get us on the board. Latino composer-lyricist lin-manuel miranda's speaking with fresh air's terry gross black and brown artists. This is a story of america then told by american now. It's our country to talk with inclusion. Hamilton's calling card. Diverse audiences made it a worldwide phenomenon and outcome. That seems natural. In retrospect but that flew in the face of decades of theatre practice in nineteen eighty-six when the stage union actor's equity convened the first national symposium on nontraditional casting. It noted that more than ninety percent of actors hired in the us were white and presented scenes designed to help theater makers consider other possibilities
The Other Black Girl
"I got my copy of the other black girl months before it came out as i often do. I started reading and through its pages. I got to wonder the halls of wagner books alongside black editorial assistant nella. Who's been there about two years at this point. I sat with her in her cubicle and listened in on the often-frustrating conversation she had with vera her white boss. I noted her ambition to become an editor herself following in the footsteps of her idol. The conic black editor kendra ray whittaker who edited the books of. Noah's all time favorite author. The incredible diana gordon author a burning heart. A book meant so much to her. And so many other young black girls kendra ray whittaker had once walked the halls of wagner books herself and now delegates to work there every day. Sure the pay isn't enough to live on and she puts up with a lot of crap. I mean so much crap. The way the microaggressions she endured portrayed in these pages is illuminating. But also it was noah's dream to walk these halls wagner is the hardest publishing house to get into in here. She is now she just has to work her way up. That's proving harder than she imagined. I held my breath when nellis spots another black girl and the halls of wagner a girl named hazel. Who's come to interview. Nella knows not to get her hopes up as she says she only believed that the higher ups at wagner had finally considered interviewing more diverse people when she saw it because over the last two years the only people who've been interviewed or hired were very specific people from a very specific box.

Margaret Cho's Self-Care Ritual: Skincare and Walking

That is important in their lives So we wanted to start there and see if you have anything to share something that you do on a regular basis that and helps you get through the day or the week Well i have a few things.

One year on: What have we learned about viruses since news of COVID-19
"Is a year since the world. Health organization declared a global pandemic and the world's began to adopt the lockdown status. That we are now so familiar with and according to the. Who also face the prospect of the pandemic staying with us until at least the start of next year. So what have we learned or dr. chris. Smith is multiple twenty-first health and science correspondent and a regular voice on one twenty four. Good morning chris. Well i remember this time last year. We were having a very similar conversation about the world going into lockdown. And he said we've got a book on bird flame. We're having a meeting. I think we might be all right. How how things out for you. In what respect. Because i if you look at different aspects of of how my life has played out then busy would be the best definition. But but i have a career which is a media career and providing science and medical commentary on things like pandemics at the same time. I have a medical career. Which is vera gist. So it's a bit like someone took. Ill musk's big effing rocket and place like no one on each leg and just ignited the same time i appreciate i. I've been very busy and in some respects. It's been an exhilarating terrifying right for others. It's obviously been devastating in terminal respect as well as in a sort of economic respect. So i think everyone is fed very differently. But maybe that wasn't what you were asking. Well let's focus on the variety section of it there. Is this sense of trying to be prepared. I think there's a feeling that many people had this time last year that we didn't know what was around the corner but the everybody was doing their absolute utmost to make sure that they could be as ready as they could be. What was it that we learned about viruses and how to deal with them within in the last year. We'll know not the golden rule book for anything night this because every situation is different every viruses different. And we'd never had a situation like this. We'd had similar situations. We've had flu outbreaks before and we'd had saws marquand the ancestor. That came in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand and three off of saul's sauce covey too but we hadn't seen anything quite like this as a result the there is no golden rule. Book says when this happens. This is how you handed of course. Also every country's different every population is different than makeup of those countries is different the way in which people work how they live what they do as a country how they respond as country. The letter prepared misses. The country is different. The amount of travel that goes on between countries is different. So it's really tricky. When you've got that extremely heterogeneous makeup of the world which makes a great place. of course. it's very difficult to then say. Well this is how you control something because there is no evidence to fall back on apart from things they'll related but not the same and when you've got that difference and it's a fluid situation where it's always a moving target because as we might one step forward things change the then mean. The virus takes a step foot. We've seen that with the various example. It's been tricky all the while it's been a massive learning process at every stage to work out how we can best out this challenge and we are not there yet. I mean my my mistake. My biggest mistake. I think was anticipating that we would have solved this problem by now. I honestly thought that by now We we would have been on the road closer to home for
Who are we vaccinating now? Who should be next?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Dr. peter uni sits on the covid science advisory table and he co-authored a new report. That suggests that better. Way i mentioned. Hello peter why don't you start out for those of us who aren't familiar with it by explaining. What is the covid. Nineteen science advisory table. Who's on it. What role does it play. The science advisory table is grew ball scientists and Senior 'em health systems decision makers that advised the province ministry of health and elected decision-makers vera bar with forty five people meanwhile but we also have several subgroups for instance a subgroup of congregate settings on behavioral sciences etc. The me twice a week typically So we spend. It's the best part of Three hours together every week which helps associate to keep to develop a continued common sense of reality and we meet once a week with the health. Coordination table and half multiple meetings are more talk basis with various representatives of the different ministries Public health on -tario on that. And other stakeholder groups can you outline before we get into this new report. How ontario is currently approaching vaccine distribution. And did you guys advise the government on their initial plan. B didn't the initially advice on the vaccination rollout bouts galt relatively as strongly involved when discussing the importance of speed in vaccination of Long term care home residents and staff and which also goltz incorporate in the strategy of the province the current strategy is focusing on different woman apple groups as i implied already one of them. Of course the most important one is long term care home residents we had Roughly fifty percent of the deaths Covid nineteen deaths in the province long-term care home residents and they're glad to report back that that this really went extremely well and that we really now see the impact of Covid nineteen vaccines in this. Very vulnerable grew the challenges. We had which were big changes in the province actually have nearly completely been eliminated there at an ulta groups that are important including a frontline healthcare workers again this is important because they can't get continuously exposed but also because you need to make sure that the healthcare workers are actually able to work obviously and not part of an outbreak that could result in prolonged isolation and quarantine and then chester in a decrease in the workforce that we currently urgently need and the the current surge strategy also focuses on those who are aged eighteen boffin again. This makes perfect sense because that's the people who were most likely to die except for people in the long term care home see respective of their age so this all makes perfect sense where we are right now and that's why we're coming in actually with this new report so everything that we're doing already makes sense but isn't necessarily the optima way and this is what your new report gets sent. Iran this is correct. Yes so vault we now just. They're trying to address. Is the fact that that this pandemic all over. The world is socio economically driven very clearly. Life is unfair and this also halts for the impact of this pandemic. those people are most vulnerable live in precarious living situations. Get the chop stall on behalf of all of us you know. Make sure that we actually have act are able to buy you know foods on the shelves in the supermarkets. That's those people are most heavily burdened by this pandemic and what we know ways that the pandemic is heavily concentrated in terms of its burden on ten to twenty percent of the neighborhoods in the province and at this has been historically the case and assist case. Most of the time in life you with the past is the best predictor of the future. Even if we would not like this to be the case and what we know is also for in in terms of short-term or maidstone predictions that this continues to be the case host neighborhoods that were most heavily burdened in the past. They haven't reached an herd immunity yet. they're not sufficiently protect against against infections. And they will continue to have freely. High numbers of cases of hospitalizations viseu missions deaths. If you're not being careful and just look into how to protect these neighborhoods best and that's where it is. Report comes in. We try to describe the magnitude of the problem and try to outline solution. That actually looks into two different dimensions. Here one continues to be h really important about the second dimension and basically then just across tap these. Two dimensions against each other is neighborhood the residence.

Has the Reddit brigade found a new target?
"Wines. Have the read it. Traders found a new target guidance. This is certainly an interesting space to target. It is very complicated. it is very technical. And in many instances not very liquid. And it's very binary and there are a number of these names that have huge short interests as to add so it's oil it's all of those are sort of the all the things that i think people on this platform the read it platform would be looking for then. You mentioned cassava so quickly you talked about the volume traded. I think over the last three days today obviously included trade about one hundred and eighty million or show shares. I mean it's just amount of volume over three day period given its historical norm. And you've seen the stock go from about eight dollars a share. I think it traded at one seventeen today and reverse and reverse in a meaningful way. But this isn't just the red it crowd. I mean they actually had data come out a couple of days ago in terms of the alzheimer study. There was pretty positive. I think that field this as well. The concern i would have here and i'm not endorsing. I'm i'm not making procon statement of any of these names. We're going to talk about. But they did a secondary back in november from that mistake in november thirteenth. About eight million or nine million shares secondary around eight dollars a share. Be aware that for a lot of these companies given the stock price move. This is an opportunity for these companies to do secondaries. I would imagine you'll see one here in another name that you didn't mention but is a big enough market cap that talk about not necessarily a biotech company but falls under those parameters as named like vera site which is at another ridiculous move. You can pull that one up as well. i think. it's v. C. y. t. If i'm not mistaken and there's talk that maybe a secondary might becoming there so just be aware that a lot of these stocks have had tremendous runs but you know secondaries are looming out there. Potentially you can obviously see what could happen to the stocks in the midst of one very binary a lot of these names. Just be aware of what. You're getting yourself into again quickly. The way to play this all along the slow and steady ways been the. Yeah brian kelly. What do you make of this
What happens if you test positive for COVID-19 and can’t fly back to the US?
"About 50,000 flight attendants from 17 Airlines wants those airlines to share their individual. No fly list information right now. Those lists are kind of airline specific. Jay Ratliff, Aviation expert Joining us all the coca News Live. I'm good to have you back J Hey, pleasant. Good morning. So these no fly lists. Um what are the no fly list about? Do they involve masks or are they just generally people behaving badly in the skies? When the mask policy was put into place by airlines is is kind of a way to Yeah, Get some passengers to be a little bit more comfortable about flying at first, you may remember is optional If he had a medical condition you didn't have to worry about wearing a mask, but it seems like 78% of the aircraft had some sort of medical issue. Opted not to wear them. So that's when it became mandatory for anyone over two years of age to wear masks during the entire flight over your nose and your mouth. Some passengers did not want to do that, And as a result, they created either issues in the gate or onboard an aircraft. And those passengers had to be removed or once the plate was completed. Escorted off of the aircraft, and those passengers were put on the airlines No fly list, which is basically This is in place until the mass policy is listed. And then we will welcome you back. But until then, since you've proven that you can't abide by our mass policy, we're gonna ban you until The policy is no longer in place that the issue is if I act upon a Delta flight and cause a disturbance that gets to wherever we're going, they pulled me off the flight and say, Look, you're not gonna be arrested. But you didn't follow the airlines mass policies were banning you from Delta Airlines for the time being. Could say Okay, and then I just zip on down to United. Grab a flight on them, and I can fly anywhere. I want to go and the flight attendants are saying, Look, if J X up on Delta. The consequences shouldn't only be on Delta. It should be on all U. S carriers. You're basically giving this crazy guy can opportunities on 10 different airlines to act up inconveniencing perhaps 10 different flights that they're on, and flight attendants are just that the point now where every single day Mask police. There's no federal guidelines for mass policies yet, so it's all the airline policy and most people recognize it As such, so they really don't feel threatened by, you know, getting in trouble, so to speak. Because they know it's going to be something that only involves that airline. There's not gonna be fined or anything like that. However, last week, the Federal Aviation Administration came out said Look, if you cause an onboard disturbance with an airline You face a possible fine of up to $35,000. So now there's a little bit more of an incentive for somebody like Jay to not create a problem with the mask or anything else. So that I don't get in trouble with the FAA. All right, So let's move on to, you know, travel in the age of covert with airlines that went toe, you know, they were started by keeping people at least one seat apart now, not so much on now. There's an Air American Airlines initiative for a health passport. So how does that work exactly? American Airlines is the first airline to adopt this health passport. They're working with Vera fly. It's an app that can show whether or not you've been tested for the coronavirus. And it comes in handy because now that the CDC is saying as of the 26th of this month, if you fly internationally, you're coming back into the United States. You're gonna have to prove that you've had a negative covert test within three days. Of your date of travel, or you have to show documentation that you had the coroner virus you recovered, Okay? And the issue is how do you prove that? Well, this app is in place. Now that will make these these medical testing or records available quickly. So it is you fly. You can show the agents you have, and then you'll be able to board the plate back into the United States. Clusters. Other countries around the world that had that same sort of requirement for entry into their country. And this type of Anak would satisfy those countries. For the most part. Or they could see Okay, you've been tested. It was in three days. No positive tests, You know, come on into the country. You don't have quarantine for 14 days. Alright, And we're gonna see more airlines following suit of this now. The real interesting part is Are we going to see this domestically? Qantas Airlines has already said once the vaccine is out there passengers have been vaccinated will be allowed to fly on certain flights if you've not been vaccinated. They're not gonna let you fly. Oh, if you think you think we're having fun over, you know, mask situations. Wait. So that rules out And when you guys were kidding about Burbank earlier, laughing because they said, you guys may not be too far off. If this type of thing happens domestically, I don't think it will. But I learned a long time ago. And 30 years of doing my aviation reports. You never say never when it comes to the airline industry. Oh, boy, they were at left. Joining us on the Koga news live line once again, J. Always

We took a colocation approach. And so you know a lot of the paints we went through. I think that's why. I think compass it's such a great product is because like all the pains be went through. I think would have been helped if we had compass at the time but we went through a very painful process of like having hundred fifty retail clients into an entirely new business posting their machines in a facility. That wasn't will build wasn't equipped to deal with the kansas city. Summer at just under capitalized from the start and so kind of all the everything kind of went wrong. That could've and it ended up going under. But i think You know is a very valuable learning experience for our team. The infrastructure side of the businesses incredibly hard and so. We've learned kind of the difficulties there. We wanna build like the best software products. We tend to support that but No way do. I wanna head down to a facility again and i work with nick foster like two. Am at night with pizza. Hut trying to wrack minors this man. Did you guys moved to the area while the city was operational. Yeah i was about like a two minute. Walk away in this like a motel. Yikes in this town of a few thousand people. It was just me like making anywhere. They came to own a few weekends. But i kinda went. Live down there for a bit trying to turn thing around and you know jumping into this location he is. I think it's really hard to manage that many clients if your new business you know. Maybe a professional company like has the process down pat but for a lot of these new colocation. They may have incredible like power rates could facility but just like interfacing with a hundred and fifty. Two hundred clients is incredibly tough. So that's the compass like an incredible amount of value to these types of operations. Is you can kind of partner with somebody to do that for you. And it solves a lot of your headaches there. It's difficult for people and when you have good technical knowledge and you want to build out a warehouse and host minors. There's a lot to it you know. I think that you know people will find cheap power and they don't understand that like having cheap power is okay but like there's cheap power everywhere. There's reasons that even though people find cheap power they have trouble standing up a facility whether itself mining or it's hosting for other people is because there's a lot goes into it. It's not just you know building a a chicken coop and putting up some racks getting getting people in you know as restraining people for compass you can tell like you can tell when you have a conversation with somebody like who's ready to host clients and who is just trying to jump on the gravy train like who understands that there's an opportunity now they just wanna you know. Stand something up and get some machines in. There's going to be people that are out there that are going to end up. Getting wrecked by jumping in some of these facilities are just not ready to handle them. And i mean like the the cores and some of those other guys for them. It's prohibitive to take smaller clients. They have they have a ton of space available. And i think they're targeting a different clientele well well-capitalized. They've got the ability to understand the financials properly. They know what they're getting into a few machines. Goff line it's not the end of their world just a different bag. But i think that more people than ever now looking to get into bitcoin mining and i just think that's gonna continue to grow company Where you know investing capital into these facilities but you are investing time and Your your brand to a degree at in your reputation. So there is that level like due-diligence which you wanna pick the winners and losers. I think that's really hard. Because you know at the time that we had mighty tack back in early. Eighteen via like a dozen competitors probably only a few of them made it guys like compute north and frontier who are our competitors at the time. They're the ones who kind of went on to have pretty good operations where islam You never heard of again. So it's it's a very hard job to pick those kind of coming facilities which ones are going to make it which aren't You hope you get like a computer. North style But there is a possibility. You get something else So yeah the. I'm kind of jealous of you like getting to watch the life cycle of those Facilities because i you know. It's pretty cool to be with people during their setup phase and then moving on to see them have success. I think as we get like three or four years in industry here. It's been amazing to like. Do that journey with a bunch of Fellow miners whether it's like pilot. Frontier foster boomer acts like it's really cool to see. I'm curious to see how things will shape up globally. Now it i would say not. As risky to host outside of north america. It'd be interesting to see how that narrative changes you know when you guys were going through the process of that facility folding. It's never easy thing so it's easy now because it's done right like it's in the past and you found success since then. Current success allows you to talk about previous failures. In a way that is yes heart wrenching but as you were going through that When the facility was the process of folding it was what twenty eighteen as the market was starting. Yeah exactly so. How was that pivot mentally for you guys as a team. I think this is the point. Where it in a startup. You always have to see if you're going to double down on your strategy endure approach or if you're going to pivot and like every business book or every. Nba teachers like business pivot. Learn that in the classroom because it's just so different when you're in that situation it's like you've just invested a year of your time into building this thing you still have some level conviction in it and even if it's not going right at one point you had very big aspirations for low like how do you eventually blake. Pull the cord pivot spend capital in that that time elsewhere And that's a hard decision. I think it's you know we've gone through. That lecture before with various products is like is this product worth continuing to back had pushed and I think that's like one of the things you learn. I think early on startups is like when to pull. It would continue on in double down for this minority like we kept quitting in dollars investments. We're doing cash. Calls the shareholder level to fund it. Eventually it was just like we can't keep pouring money into this thing. That's just burning money and so what we did was basically. We told all of our clients. Hey you can either ship your machines. Two lightspeed in ohio or compute north in nebraska will pay for the shipping. I just let us know where you wanna go. We gave them like a few weeks. Heads up that we're holding and so luckily our customers than get burned. Who's kind of just the employees shareholders which isn't great. Obviously but at least we kind of maintain those those customers relationships and made read it like screw them over to bad but it was a hard decision for

Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night. Football game mini mini games That around these days and there's gonna be a commercial for flow or he'll be commercial for you name it Gimme gimme some tv for apple apple. Lot of apple commercials. That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time.

"Like really attached to their surname. and it's Kinda funny because this is patrilineal in our culture in the US. Men take their father's surname typically. But in in places like Scandinavia. That's not what happened like the reason. There's the word Johnson is. It's literally John's son. And then if your your name is something else like William, you become Williams son, so the name changes and every generation and and. It's also that way. Spanish cultures where men take their. They take two surnames they take. Their father's surname is the first surname and their mother's surname is their second surname, so every generation is historical records, not necessarily today, but historical records the male surname changes when every generation, too. So. We can look back genetically very far in time with widening and also Matte Conrail, so let's say, and in fact in my line. My ancestor Nicholas estes except it wasn't spelled estes back then was born in fourteen, ninety five in deal England well the ESTES men who are born today can take a y DNA tasks, and because we have descendants of that man in England through multiple sons, so we know that it's the same DNA, the men today can say yes. I'm at the ESTES line back in England so I. Know that that's actually my ancestoral line. That's how with why and I to convert DNA, both we can trace it really far back in time. But at some point, the records run out. There's no more church records. But why might acclaimed real DNA has something called hepler group? And that happened group. Is something think of it as a genetic clan. And it can take us further back in time because they have a migration path, and we can track their mutations back in time, so we can track them backwards. In fact, one of your family members took a y DNA test. And or what are I, soon meets your family member. Maybe it wasn't. Maybe it was one of your producers, but anyway we have a tester and that person's HAP- law group. Is something called em thirty five now. I know that doesn't mean anything to you, but here's what it tells me. I can look at a map at family tree DNA, and they have all kinds of maps. They have a migration map and happily group maps, and all different kinds of tools of about ten wide in to off and I know that e m thirty five comes from North Africa and the Mediterranean into Spain. In fact, we call it the Berber happily group as a kind of a nickname because of the evasions from North Africa up into Morocco in Spain and that's where we find happen. Group E M thirty five so that the surname of that person. Is a relevant. Run out wherever they are, but we know where they came from before records based on their hack logger. And so your tester, whoever that was has a Berber. Y DNA from the Mediterranean basin which could be North Africa. Spain and we would tie that together with your known family history. Where do you know that they come from? Where do you think they come from what what records can we find? That would put them in any of those places. And who do they match? Where do their matches come from? Now we do the same thing with my to convert DNA. In fact, the same tester has happened group, which is a clan again for my to conrail DNA of C one C two. and. This was very interesting to me because C. One C two is unquestionably native American. And that means that you're testers. Mother's mother's mother's mother's mother straight back through all others into infinity. Was Native American. And we can take the records of that person. And see if we can tie them to a place and in. I did that with the tester that you had that person gave me two grandparents. That's the only information I had about that person, the two grandparents and Their parents name, but the only had two of their grandparents. And so I used records, and I used DNA together and I tracked. That line back to a place and I I apologize I. Don't speak Spanish, but it looks like I'm GonNa Spell for you. How's that H. U. A. N. I? Q., U., E., O., D. Morales. In Mexico. And that location is down in mid. Western Mexico and in the he can area and M. I C. H. O. A. C., A. In. And then I found baptism records there. And the baptism record. Matches a location within just a few miles of a full might've conrail sequence match an exact match of three other people. who have the ancestor with the with the name of Isabel? Though Elliott Bay Isabela only. Born in fifteen forty two, according to the church records so either she's your ancestor or you and those people and her share a common ancestor. And she was native American and the fifteen forty two day works with the history of the area, because the Spanish can quit. The doors came through that part of Mexico and Unfortunately, they did what Spanish quizzes did in Mexico and after they basically overran the native people they converted them, and they started baptizing them in the church, and the Good News Virginia. Is that the records go very far back. The church records do and then they come forward in time and those records and that church happened to be preserved, so we're very fortunate, and before that we know of history of the people in that area. And the history of the people in the area. Are Very, it's very interesting There's an indigenous group there. That's known to have been. There's three of them, but the the dominant group in that area was the. Per Hip Pecans P. U.. R. H. E. P.. H. A. N. S.. And those people there was a female leader. Warrior and She Rally Tin Thousand Native American people and Marched Against Five, hundred Spaniards? And she wants. History of your people well, that's that's crazy. I know I know so. This is so cool because we were able to take the Monaco. CONRAIL DNA. And we were able to take the baptism records, and we were able to get them within just a few miles of each other, and then we were able to find other people who have very early ancestors in that same area. Who matched that? DNA exactly. So we know in the right place and the right time and I and Now, that we know you. Hopefully we'll be able to take the records that I found and then extend them back in those church records, even further in time, and I wasn't able to go all the way back with that information that I had because I'm I ran into a problem with the Spanish records and the script, and not being a native Spanish speaker, but you can find somebody to do that or or their genealogy companies that do that and people specialize in that kind of thing, so we know that she was native. And, this also ties in. With the the third kind of DNA which is the autosomal and remember I, told you that autosomal DNA reach its broad, but not deep, so you can't go back like as many generations as we went back here. guys you know if the fifteen forty two. There's roughly four generations per centuries so I mean. That's many many generations back in time, but. Ensemble. DNA gets divided in its generations. So you can't do that, but what it does though is, it lets you even heritage DNA from all four of your grandparents. All eight of your great grandparents, sixteen of your great great, so there's little pieces at each of these get passed down to you. And we measured those and matched them against people that you match and your tester had I think it was forty. Two might have DNA matches in total, but there's forty, four, thousand, six, hundred, sixty, one autosomal matches, and some are closest second fourth cousins, but there's other parts to that, too, and one of those at family tree. DNA, my origins, and that's the ethnicity testing, or population testing. That you see advertised on TV or you did for a long time, and that's like who am I gotTa take a DNA test and find out well. Let me tell you. and continental level it's. Pretty accurate, but when you try and differentiate between you know England, and Ireland and France and Spain and Germany and Holland. It's like trying to differentiate people that were born and Indiana and Illinois I. Mean if you look at the at the The Geography Indiana and Illinois are bigger than some of those countries. So it's very difficult to tell within a continent. the you know to the country level, and plus countries have their political entities anyway and people move around. They did back then they still do today. So I looked at the my origins, the ethnicity for your tester. And Your Tester as it turns out, was approximately fifty percent new world by new world I mean North and south, America and the balance was Iberian now. Iberia Spain. The Iberian Peninsula is basically Spain and Portugal, but more specifically. There's a bath area. That's the tip, the upper typical thing and that's the area where the part that isn't native is is showing as where they're from, and then there's about five percent. That's Middle Eastern which doesn't surprise me because if you recall what I said about the Berber Happily Group that would all come from that Mediterranean area, so it's a the my origins information with family finder confirms what we found both in the. DNA from the Y. DNA, the mighty conrail, DNA and also the historical record that I was able to find an all these three things came.
