Well, this time I was singing, you know, it's it's we got a little hot and we're getting a little sweaty and Do you know what they did before deodorant, Glade strips and this little Christmas trees that you hang up your rear view mirror on your card. What they do before all that they held their nose well, sort of, actually that ties into it, But they use plants and so an ancient Rome they use fragrant plants were brought to the temples to cover the smell of the animal sacrifices. Oh, and in the middle Ages, and this has talked about a whole bunch. Uh, they use strewing herbs and stirring herbs were different types of herbs and flowers that were strewn on the floors. Uh, their houses. Not only did that make it smell better, but it also repelled insects. And they thought repelled the plague. Because during the black plague, and you have to rise I mean, a lot of like common people lived with livestock. So they there was a lot.

The Urgent Search for Melbourne's Missing Link
"I'm health reported teigen. Tyler physician journalist alter norman swan. It's wednesday the twenty six th may two thousand and twenty one and one. It feels like we're living in dacia roulin. There's a new outbreak Contact tracing we're finding more cases and of course this time we're still talking about melvin and i'll just break down the chain of events as far as i know it scifi because it's a little bit confusing so yesterday we talked about the fact that there was a guy and then it spread to a couple of his close family members and then yesterday we we then found out that there had been another case of that they calling thais five but it actually seems like this person might be the first an earlier early case than those cases that had been identified the day before and that this case five has seemingly spread it to a couple of their iron close family members. Now tell me what it means so far. Well look i think you over analyze this. And obviously victorian authorities know. You know the fine detail but yet you as we record this and people wake up in the morning There may be more cases so we'll just forgive us if we missed a few but as we record there are nine cases altogether which sounds all. This is getting scary. But it's not necessarily getting scary because there seems to be a clear chain of transmission amongst family members household contacts and yes fifth case does seem to be upstream or in time from these cases and that may well and probably the person who has infected the others. And you could say well. This person's a superspreader are probably not yet to be determined when you see whether or not this person or anybody in this group has spread to other people in the community and the shops. They've gone to swimming pool and the other areas that the locations of concerns wrapping issued by the retorted

But i i would just love if you start by introducing us to your mother's early life and formative years perhaps even starting with the very event that earned her her name will curiously enough. My mother was not born in manila. She was she wasn't born in the big city. She was born in one of the provinces in the gospel famous where a douglas mcarthur landed. A returned some. She was born in in the province to very conservative. Pure chinese other very conservative. Good gas victorian catholic milder so how she turned out the way she did. Is anybody's guess. And it was the era because my grandfather was chinese. It was the era of big families. So there were many siblings seven of them altogether but there were two or three other. Babies died of childbirth or soon after an apparently my mother was one of them because her her name when she was born or the name given to her was an amanda jones but then apparently she told me as a baby she got sick and she claims she died and so they were preparing this baby for burial in cleaning the baby and a chinese relative appears knocking on the door with some mysterious madison and ministers to the baby and she started to turn radan started crying so my grandmother being the good catholic named her salvi.

The Legend of Spring-Heeled Jack
"Like all the best legends spring heeled jack evolves over time in some stories. He's wearing a white bodysuit and a kate other times he's not even human and the earliest reports are probably the strangest because that's when he's just getting started these sightings happen in the fall of eighteen. Thirty seven reports trickle into london from nearby towns about all sorts of ghostly creatures attacking people at night i. it's a white bull. Several women from the village of barnes claim. They've each run into this bowl. It scares them half to death and for some reason they interpreted as not just a normal animal but a supernatural entity then as december turns into january a new creature shows up inside the london suburbs a bear or at least it looks like a bear. Some witnesses claim. It's a mysterious man wearing a bearskin like the bowl. This bear mostly targets women but it actually attacks them shredding their clothes with its claws eventually a third figure pops up this time. It's a man wearing polished armor with these wild claus coming out of his fingers. He's wearing the victorian version of moon shoes boots with coiled springs coming out of the heels and according to the rumours he's able to jump incredibly high over tall buildings in a single bound kind of. Hi this terrifying. Night appears all over. London suburbs scaring people each time. He grows bolder until finally he crosses the line from disturbing too dangerous. He attacks a carpenter on a street. That's ironically-named cutthroat lane his victim. The carpenter is a powerful man. Not somebody that's easy to mess with but the night literally clause his clothing into ribbons
The mystery of the flute boy bones
"Was originally on display beautiful in the center of the room. When my office is. I remember just being immediately really captivated by what is the story with that skeleton. It was just incredibly irreverend yet. Really surprising to say something with so much huma and whimsical and kind of goes against the grain of what we think about medicine today. I encountered the skeleton as a medical student. Now assisting over sort. Of course it's got to be real big suspicious. It's a fake scott. What otherwise look like a normal foot likely but it is unlikely ending credible story. You're about to hear from a collection that the public can't say it's tucked inside the harry. Brookes allen museum of anatomy used to take generations of medical students at the university of melbourne including this guy at the entrance to that museum. There are a few specimens skeletons and one in particular. Was this little boy sitting on a pedestal with this one leg so in his quite unusual looking arms and hands he's has a flute recorder just held up to his mouth. My name is dr.

Hong Kong Tries to Soothe the Rich With a Big Tax Break
"Talk business and tax breaks now because it's something being discussed in Hong Kong by officials who are hoping these maybe a sweetness to help attract the best investors and joining us Is our business correspondent Andrea would and you tell us a bit more about these tax breaks and what exactly they're planning. Well, this being this, you know, Hong Kong has had a lot of political turmoil. Over the past two years, the Beijing has imposed the national security law on Hong Kong to try and quell that And its circuit, Bt's made Hong Kong perhaps a less attractive place to live a Zoricic olt. Hong Kong officials now seem to be talking about trying to encourage businesses. Especially in finance to stay in the city rather than go to its old rival Singapore or other cities in the region. Some of the key things we're waiting for more details, but one of the key things is helping private equity investors. There's a thing where the people of the the center of private Equity Investments, the general partners, These are people who actually run the fund. They could get paid Some of the way that they make their money is through a technique known as carried interest. Now this is always very controversial about whether it should be taxed or not. Anyway, Hong Kong seems to be prepared to give concessions so that private equity investors Don't have to pay this thing's tax. And then there's other incentives around as well to make it easier for companies that are based in Hong home to access it rich people on the mainland off China and try and near look after their wealth management needs. Do they really think that these businesses are going to be swayed or would by this is that he given the kind of level of of disquiet there's been even in business circles as to the political turmoil. Well. Traditionally, Hong Kong has bean quite in a political place. And cynics say that you're basically as long as you can make money. People are going to stay in Hong Kong. I mean, it started off as a free port, you know, back in Victorian times under the British, and it's always being very hasn't had much in the way of regulations is being very great. It should be in a great place for entrepreneurs. Make money. So I think this perhaps a rather cynical view here is that the big finance companies if you let them make more money by reducing their taxes, and so on, they are going to stay in her in Hong Kong. On that people are going to they may well have foreigners may well have political views, but they're not political activists. You know it's not their country, so the theory is that companies will stay here if they can make If they can make bigger profits.
Ghosts movies and the real deal
"Welcome to kits myths and mysteries. I'm your host. Ken crammed today in my month. Long investigation into the spirit world and ghost will go hollywood and then we'll look at some facts about goes. I'll start with a dark and stormy night. That's under ship. The trees from their very roots bolts of lightning struck. The earth surface burning holes deep into the soil. What was inside. The house was ten times as frightening. Livingston's had goes several black monstrous floating creatures. They would not lamps off. Tables push pictures off. Walls throw close out of closets and drawers. They killed the family. Dog fluffy and eight to guinea pig actor. The cats pugh brown phone from his mouth and moaned incessantly. The livingston's wanted to know when this reign of terror was going to stop green. Smoke would burn out of the nostrils of these unwelcome guests. The red eyes glared the dark. Purple slime dripped from their mouths. Nothing could stop or tame these horrible visitors from the world beyond they were out to destroy the family home and drive. Mr and mrs livingston insane. They hated with a vengeance. They showed no mercy on the children day. They tied them up and chopped off their toes. They were horrible. Villainous monster slowly taking over and destroying this beautiful nineteenth century victorian home just as an evil lucky spectre looms towards mr livingston wielding a bloody axe. Someone in the back room to cut us. Do the scene over there you go. That's what we hear a lot of variations like that about ghosts but here are some facts about at are quite so hollywood ish. The difference between a ghost spirit is very simple. They're both soles. That are no longer living in a body but a ghost is a soul that has remained on earth in a spirit is a soul has moved on to the other side and has begun a new life there.
Anna Atkins and the Cyanotype with Josie Purcell
"Today. We're gonna be talking about this incredible women on a cans. I have to thank you first. And foremost she was never on my radar. And i don't think if he hadn't written into me she probably would have completely surpassed me and i'm so. I'm really grateful first and foremost that. You've brought this incredible women to my attention. But can i ask. Where did you come across. Ana oh gosh and quite a number of years back now. I'm my background is working in and talk. Raphy lots of different certify options medical photographer But in the past ten fifteen years. And i really went back to my first love of traditional doc processes an alternative photographic processes so those tend to be processes that might be made without a camera. Even so. that's where. I really found out about anorak kuenz because my passion for one of those processes which is the science type and what is the tape for anyone. That's perhaps never heard that term before. Well hopefully there's a slightly in the name in the sense that it process that produces blue and white images at the end of it and it's a sort of photograph process of contact. Printing was invented back in eighteen forty. Two an anna was one of the m well. In fact she's noted as being the first person to create a photographic book and it was with that process that she created that book. So yes it's really fascinating process for me. It's really important because he's probably one of the the least impact on on the environment as in you can wash and they make out in the ocean. If for instance. So that sort of my my interesting is while it speaks to so took trying to lessen my photographic footprint as well so yet to really beautiful process. It's one the can be ease ready simply you can. But it's not Pony different things that you can. You can do within wasif using it. It's been really fascinating. Actually because although it was never going to be because of the just the two tones it was never going to be taken on into the history of photography when when it was being invented and developed it really is such a beautiful process that in the lawsuit of since i've ready been working with it again. I've really known in the last few years that white people getting ready entrusted in it. You can use it with chiltern new. You know you can. So it's got so much scope really as a as a netflix process that you can do at home and it's such a simple process in its in. Its by be basic forms. While i think. That's what's really intriguing for me. A about the process of of of purchasing these and the first thing i came across it actually by the i work in a sculpture gallery and it was one of our artis that has created a couple of prince using the process and i had never heritage before it's so so fascinated by thank first and foremost really kind of talk about ana yet and who who was anna can on why she important while the me back in the in the anna lindh. She was born in seventeen at nine thousand nine and she died in eighteen. Seventy one victorian period and it was obviously a period when there was an awful lot of invention and discovery recent Across numerous scientific fields happening photography itself was invented and developed during that period photography as we know it now was invented at that time by i. Think for me with anna. It was because women in particular that time when not necessarily considered sort of science wasn't considered to suitable pastime for them to to take part in so for me having women in a position where they could actually push the boundaries and rock the boat to everyday life then obviously. She came from a wealthy a privileged background to although women as a whole had less opportunities. She did obviously have a slightly better opportunity than other women. In the sense that have farther was a scientist and he really encouraged her her education and shared his knowledge with when she was a child. Mother died not long after she was born so i think that they became quite a strong partnership as it were and she grew up with a passion the science and a passion for botany in particular So she was actually a botanist and also an artist as wow one of the things she did for her father. He translated a polk and she illustrated it which was all about shelves so she was very good drawing beautiful illustrations as well so she had all of those interests and passion. It wasn't intellectual when she was a little bit older that she discovered the type process and the had the opportunity to actually share a collection. She'd been collecting numerous earned plants. Flowers see like in a herbarium over the years and it wasn't until she. She made this discovery with family friends around the science type process that she she was able to then shed on a bigger
Hungary’s Ruling Party Breaks With Conservative E.U. Allies
"Relationship with the european union is continuing to sour. The country's prime minister has drawn his party fitness from the eu's alliance of centre-right lawmakers the european people's party a change in the rules to allow the european parliament to expel members more easily and in addition to this hungry is forging ahead with its own coronavirus vaccination program using russia's sputnik v product yet to be given the green light by the e. Tell us more. I'm joined now by buyer. Who's a reporter at politico. Good morning lily. Morning thanks for having me a pleasure to tell us what has happened with fidesz viktor. Victorian suggestion is is that. they have jumped before they were pushed. That's right that's so or band. Sent a letter formally withdrawing his ruling fetus party from the european people's party which job as you said. Is this big the biggest group in the european parliament. It's it's a centre-right grouping but it's actually. I'm quite diverse internally. It has some members that lena bit more liberal at how members which are quite conservative and even though officials eat this move came after change to the groups Internal rules really. It's a culmination of years. And years of of debate and internal tension and ultimately i think some of the group's biggest members and in particular the german at christian democratic union That that's the party of chancellor. Angela merkel at perhaps have started feeling that does is more of a liability ford them and so or bond decided you to quit and look elsewhere and just explain to us how we have got to this point where fidesz is in such a dire situation with the european parliament and that it that oh viktor. Orban has decided to leave. I mean i'm writing thinking that That european parliament officials had already suspended fitness from The the center right group already and this is just a second step well. He's his aides a bit complicated. But basically has has party was suspended from the broader european people's party A few years back but they were allowed to stay in the european people's party group in the european parliament. And what happened this week. Is that the twelve members of the european parliament. Left this centre-right grouping within the parliament and are now sitting in parliament but simply as independent members without formal political affiliation and the big question now is what will come next so whoa joined one of the more conservative right-leaning groups one option is the european conservatives and reformists group where the polish a ruling lon justice party is a member Another option is the identity and democracy group where alternative for germany and marine le. Pen's a party are are our members. And then there's the third option of china to create something new which is tough but but possible So what what we saw. Yesterday is victoria on Wrote a small essay where he said that he wants to build What what he termed a In new democratic rights for citizens who don't want migrants don't fund multiculturalism and in his words have not descended into quotes. Lgbtq lunacy so he is putting out his his his platform he's making his views very very public and clear and saying that he's looking for some kind of New right-wing alliance.

The Art & Science of Rock Gardening
"Thinking about it from the gardening perspective. When you say a rock garden will start there. What what what is a rock garden mean exactly. Well you know. It's a books of unwritten about it. Hundreds of books matter of fact but graham stuart thomas wrote the classic but it really can't comes back to the nineteenth century and victorian so to speak and europe is well when tourists started going to use. There were just stunned by the beauty of the flowers. And they want to take them home and they did they dig them up and take them home and they'd started by building these raucous and they were pretty dreadful and you can still see him an old neighborhoods around stuff so it really was about taking that the app spec home but that was the beginning. There's another beginning. Of course that goes back to china in in the third century when the poet chen or being during the six dynasties period here he describes a building a garden with rocks and wildflowers. So that the the asians have been doing that not alpine so much more woodland plants and that's really what most americans do because especially in the east and the west coast. That's what you go best woodland plants so my vision of rock guiding is not strictly alpine although the outlines of pretty cool you know your audience can't see the screen behind me but it's actually a garden in and utah. The belongs to a man named john steiermark and it's nothing but dry land plants from the american west and africa and a spectacular fall any alpine vista. So the truth be said what for me. What rock gardening as i had to sum it up in a sentence would be recreating a something natural around you so that you can have fun with nature and learn so for me. A rock garden could be a bog. Could be a prairie. It could be a a border of plants. Big ones little ones. that are more or less naturalistic. The bottom line is really wild plants. More than anything else i mean. We have cultivars of of these plants but for me in my experience rock gardening. Because i've been a member of the rock garden society for example for about fifty years and the scottish and english as well and was astonishing. Is this this community of people who really know. Plants like nobody. I mean botanist. I guess not planning on way but rock gardeners have this extraordinary ability to know the plan from the time it's the seed till it matures. And it's the rock gardeners. I think of the world who are some of the greatest explorers and plant worshipers. Shall we say yes certainly. And that is my favorite thing about these very specific groups and yes botanists an ecologists. They have their own interaction. But there's few people in the department. At least that. I work in in many of the departments. I know of that can grow a plant or really truly get to understand plant. Quite like gardner does and those specific groups when you start to find people that super specialize they are encyclopedia's of both knowledge and the artistry of it. And that's what excites me. The most about rock gardening is it. Is that sort of emphasis on species which excites me. I liked cultivars plenty enough but to me. The species did at the best nature invented the best and has unparalleled. But then you get to express yourself a little bit and try to recreate something this this honoring of nature honoring the landscape and rock. Earning really emphasizes that more than a lot of other types of guarding. Perhaps by is just trying to recreate or at least honor something. That nature has done over millennia. Which isn't easy but it's also very rewarding. When you do something come out of the other
Midwife Ashlee Sourapas on the Stigma of Home Births
"Feel like our culture has it doesn't speak of birth. The way that birth is it doesn't teach women that they're powerful all like. Did you learn throughout your lifetime. That you're powerful amazing. Strong body could create life and bring forth life. And these aren't the things that we were taught growing up. These are the things that we're learning now. These are the things that we're learning to teach our children but that was not something that even our mothers and grandmothers have in the believe it was the eighteen. Hundreds there was a lot of lay midwives granny midwives traditional midwives who worked in the communities and took care of their births labor delivery. All of it was at home and then they started training. Obstetricians and these schools started pumping out to take care of women in the hospitals and they started marketing it so it became a very big marketed. Strategic thing of basically blasting the traditional midwives saying like don't birth with these women. They're dirty they have diseases or they're witches or whatever and then it was like birth in the shiny beautiful hospital where we will keep you safer and so there was this huge shift in the victorian age where women were like. Well why wouldn't i wanna give it. It's like the more prestigious way to give birth was in this clean sterile hospital quote unquote sterile hospital and so midwife became very ostracized and belittled and overtime went from one hundred percent births at home to less and less and less and less to now. We're like one point something percent. It's it's very interesting Tactic and i think now. We're seeing the swing because people are starting to waking up to them to themselves until waking up to their power and find what what they really do feel intrinsically. That they're meant to do with their bodies
Latest Melbourne hotel quarantine leak proves 'we're not learning'
"Happened in melbourne's melbourne's now in a five day down because of a hotel quarantine skype and we need your wisdom on it. Nominee basically. What we've seen is there was an escape from high to- quarantine that's a couple of times in the last few weeks and months all ever ustralia but unlike what happened in western australia and queensland they it's lead to more cases than just one or two zero so over the weekend we've seen another cases come out A few more exposure sites being recommended that people who were they're going get tested and isolate so the question is is five days going to be enough for victoria to bring these quarantine lake under control from reports. Seems clear that for a short period of time the contact tracing hesitate to use words Lost the plot but the behind it could be because it's a variant purdue could've conceivably happened with the wuhan virus as well is it's very infectious foreigners anyway and you've had a bit of escape and that's the problem that they're chasing a bit in melbourne and i think the the tracing commander in victoria does excellent work probably was prematurely the other day when he said they're on top of it you know i don't think they wear on top of that day and it's just got a beat out in the question is how much virus there is out there. There's positive sewage from various places including cobra. Where interestingly the was this private event where there's it seems to have been a bit of a spreading events how much spreading event we've remains to be seen and yet again we see with his forest that it's cluster-based that you get clusters so you're gonna cost situation in the holiday inn and then goes to other areas where you can get further sub clusters if you like developing the question is just to what extent you've got other clusters going and the extent to which they're tying them dina what's really good. News is a lot of victorians are coming forward for testing. The now seem to be on top of the contact tracing at least according to the press conference yesterday and they're the people who are becoming positive already in quarantine which is really good news artan about although it's relatively recent moved into quarantine see don't know backtracking the extent to which they were spreading the virus before they became positive. So my guess is the. I can't really guess because no inside information but what to watch for is just. How many new cases develop each states. If you remember from western australia queensland particularly when they went to short shot lockdowns zero cases each day's me say well. Why did they bother doing it here. There are not zero cases each day but now cases coming forward questions what happens today but if there are more cases each day particularly new venues than they are going to be a bit anxious about letting this go on wednesday so we'll just need to wait and see. unfortunately there's no crystal ball gazing. You mentioned just now this idea of a short short incubation period which is something that we've sort of his that it's language that's been used almost every time this being an outbreak so we heard it in south australia and in sydney last year as well. Is there any evidence that this time. They truly is a shorter incubation period. Looking at national evidence. No it's more that you the you're much more likely to spread it to other people are not the reproduction number is more like three point. Four and two point five with the wuhan version of the virus. The number of people that you're likely to infect if it was going on chick to live in faith but which is an artificial number because if you look at say the crossroads motel they are not there. I don't know guessing. But fifteen maybe fifteen people or something like that because it spreads and clusters the are not as average when you can get into super spanning the are not becomes really quite large and scary and with this new variant presumably even larger and scarier. And then you get people emerging probably with a lot of virus on board early on who helped the super spreading to a car and that makes it looks as the incubation period is shorter. It's just i think they've got a viral load. That develops faster rather than the the condition period being shorter luck with other times that we've seen a short shop look down as the company to fly over this idea of a five day quarantine. Is it an overreaction. I don't believe it is controlled. Every time i say it but the fact is you've got this new variant around. There's increasing information from britain that it's more virulent that there may be hospitalization and maybe even har- death rate with it still uncertain so i don't think it is and i think it's just a question of getting things under control and letting the contact tracers get on top of it really quickly and not really damaging and it's been damaging weekend for the restaurant trades in victoria with valentine's day we can also the lunar new year but it's an important thing to do and you if you go back to the middle of last year. If tornado had done this kind of thing probably for about two weeks just says it was spreading in the northwest corridor. They wouldn't almost certainly have had a lockdown lasting well over hundred

And it's clearly wired the victorian government enough for them to close it down. Move everyone from it. For a deep clean as the premier daniel andrews explained yesterday. They were several cases. I suppose we can refer to them. One was the the authorized officer. The other one was a food and beverage attendant and then the third case was a hotel resident and all of them they think are linked back to the theory that that going and calling it the moment. Cold the nebulizer theory. So that sounds intriguing. And we'll unpack that in a little bit but to save vilnai from speculating for completely unqualified physicians. We brought in an actual expert today. Dr kirsty short. Who's a just from the university of queensland. Welcome kisdi high so kirsty. This theory the nebulizer theories based on this idea that someone in the hotel was using and as in one of those medical devices that can help deliver a medicine to someone that can also create aerosols. Does this add more to our knowledge. About how corona virus does doesn't transmit through the air while look. I think there's been a lot of debate about this throughout the pandemic and other role gist. You know i've never seen this as a black and white issue because you never going to have a virus that is hundred percent aircel and you never going to have a mars. That's hundred percent droplet. You're just going to have in some circumstances it's arizo transmission and in some circumstances it's droplet transmission so we've always sort of suspected in high risk procedures like integration of patients with curved That that could be an aerosol generating procedure. And i suspect probably what's happening in these toe quarantine situations is. We are getting rather unfortunate string or unlucky string of events whereby you on maybe having aerosols generated in the room for whatever reason be nebulizer others. And then what you've got to remember. Is that in facilities way. You where. I work in the laboratory where you work with the actual vars. It's all negative pressure. So that means that when you open daw- the epcot come out and it stays in the room but these hotels onto signed as quarantine facilities. Sorry theoretically what could happen is an individual. There could be lots of ours. Air sliced in the room and individual could open the door. And then somebody who is walking past or the virus could stay in the f. x. amount of time as the was drawn into the corridor with the door being arpan. Sorry these all sound. Like very pedantic risks i guess but when when leukaemia detect every single case of infection they are really really
3 ways to upgrade democracy for the 21st century
"I want to talk to you today about democracy about the struggles that it's experiencing and the fact that all of us together in this room might be the solution but before i get onto. That owns. Take a little detour into the past. Place called the penick's which is where about two and a half thousand years ago. The ancient greeks ancient athenians gathered to take all the major political decisions together. I say the ancient athenians that was only the men actually was only free resident property ending men but with all those failings it was still a revolutionary idea that ordinary people were capable of dealing with the biggest issues of the time and didn't need to rely on a single supposedly superior ruler. It was you know it was a way of doing things. It was a political system. Was you could say democratic technology appropriate to the time fast forward to the nineteen th century when democracy was having another flourishing moment and the democratic technology that though using then was representative democracy the idea that you have to elect a bunch of people to look after your best interests and if you think about the conditions of the time the fact that it was impossible together everybody together physically and of course it didn't have the means to gather everyone to give virtually it was again a kind of democratic technology appropriate to the time fast forward again to the twentieth century. And we're living through what's internationally known as the crisis of democracy what i would call the crisis of representative democracy. The sense that people falling out of love with this as a way of getting things done that. It's not fundamentally working and we see this crisis take many forms in many different countries so in the uk. You see a country that now at times looks almost ungovernable in places like hungary and turkey. You see very frighteningly authoritarian leaders being elected in places like new zealand. We see it in the. Nearly one million people could voted at the last general election but who chose not to now these kinds of struggles these sort of crises of democracy many roots of course but for me one of the biggest ones is that we haven't upgraded democratic technology. We still far too. Reliant on the systems that we inherited from the nineteenth and from the twentieth century and we know this because in survey after survey people tell us they say that we're getting fish year of decision making power decisions happen somewhere else. They say we don't think the current systems allow government to genuinely deliver on the common good the interests that we share as citizens they say. We're much less differential than ever before and we expect more than ever before and we want more than ever before to be engaged in the big political decisions that affect us and they know that awesome of democracy have just not kept pace with either the expectations all the potential of the twenty first century. And for me. What that suggests is that. We need a really significant upgrade of our systems of democracy. That doesn't mean we throw out everything this working out the current system because we always need representatives to carry out some of the complex work of running the modern world but it does mean a bit more athens and a list victorian england and it also means a big shift towards what's generally called everyday democracy and it gets us name because it's about finding ways of bringing democracy closer to people giving us more meaningful opportunities to be involved in it giving us a sense not just part of government on one day every few years when we vote. But we're proud of it every other day of the year now that everyday democracy has to key qualities that obscene seen proof. They with time and again in the research that i've done. The first is participation. Because it's only if we as citizens as much as possible get involved in the decisions that affect us. The will actually get the kind of politics that we need. The will actually get our common good served. The second important quality is deliberation. And that's just a fancy way of saying high quality public discussion because over well people participating but it's only when we come together and we listen to each other. We engage with the evidence and reflect on our own views that we genuinely bring to the surface. The wisdom and the idea is to what otherwise remain scattered an isolated amongst us as a group. It's only in the crowd really become smarter than the individual so if we ask what could this abstract idea this everyday democracy actually looked like in practice. The great thing is. We don't even have to use our imaginations because these things are already happening in pockets around the world.
Sydney isolated from rest of Australia as COVID outbreak grows
"Saw christmas wig. Norman and over the weekend we have seen. The sydney outbreak will the northern beaches outbreak really grow and restrictions of coming to place when we said good bata audience on friday nominee. Pretty optimistic that we were going to be out of now these thing before. Christmas is still feeling that way. I'm nervous i think. I don't think they're doing enough. The risk is that it overwhelms the contact tracing. It's just you. Don't you never know where it is. And yeah probably called it wrongly pepsi two racks about it but it is There are a lot of cases. They and they're not just in the northern beaches area when you look through the list of locally acquired cases there you there in sydney there in the north northern suburbs there in the eastern suburbs. not many. but there's just a few and you don't need many. This started with just one case from overseas. Probably aircrew of the prices. Speculating on somebody being in You'll getting exemption but either way it's from overseas and the system is broken down. Basically new south wales luck has run out so new south wales approach up until now has just been really intense contact tracing and that actually been pretty successful with keeping a handle on the cases. They're considering the work houses a few months ago. So the restrictions that they operating in the northern beaches a pretty tough. But there's still more that they could be doing. Isn't it well. I just think it's called smacking. But haven't mandated masks sydney white. I mean that's the first thing you do. You just tell everybody living in greater sydney soon as you walk how she wear a mask. I know you can't transmit it very well but taking a mask on an office you go inside just what soon as you go out you put on your mask and that means review go. You've got your mask on. It's cheap effective by seventy percent. You don't know where the viruses just mandate. I do not know why the new south wales government is so done on mask. Wearing how much of a problem is it that we still don't really know exactly how this outbreak kicked off. Oh it's huge that you know how well i think we know how tall it kicked off. Somehow from somebody from overseas the was negative until the tenth of december the genomic strongly suggests from overseas perhaps the united states and so it spread from somebody who's coming from overseas. The question was aircrew. Was somebody returning to from overseas somebody who was given exemption to go home and didn't stay at home. Who knows what the story might be. But it's definitely from overseas trouble is we don't know when and we're not really sure where we know where the super spreading events where the super spreading events in a bowling club and the avalon oursel- and there are other hotspots around hotspots places where people have been but essentially a very big dense people having a lot of fun good on them into there was a problem at that point but that was a super spreading event and from there. It spread outwards. And it's not just to satisfy curiosity that we want to know where these outbreak kicked off from. We need to know where the chink is armagh so that we can make sure that this doesn't happen again. Well no it's more than that. It's it's that's part of it but that's kind of done the track a little bit when you're dealing with an a pandemic that breaks out in clusters you've got to find all the clusters and you've got to find out where the cluster started so whilst you got to say well okay teagan you are at the avalon bowling club on on a certain date which was high risk and everybody that you've been in contact with. We want to know we actually want go before you know what happened. What were you doing two three four five days before then before you tested positive where where you and actually start the contact tracing back in time in history and what they're doing now is they're trying to do that new south wales back to the twenty third of november to give a bit of a margin beyond what they think might be. The first cases roundabout the first of december. So you to go back in time as well as get the immediate context and by there's going to be secondary context is going to be people who got first time around To second time around and it's out in the city and in other suburbs as well as outside the northern beaches and as we find out from victoria. it's very hard to ring-fence a suburb. But as we said i think in the last grown cast the northern beaches are fairly straightforward to ring fences the much more well defined than some of the really big in warfare suburbs in melbourne's northwest corridor. Really impossible but even so. It's still very very hard. It's a big densely populated area and ring-fencing is is only going to have a limited effect. You've really got to ring-fence greater sydney for a few days to see what's happening and maybe for a couple of weeks. It's christmas yes. It's tough but businesses already winding for christmas. The economic impact should not be huge. If you lock down sydney and just get this thing under control and not mess around. What we've seen from overseas is quite clear. And it's quite clear from victoria as well if you mess around and do a little of this a little bit of that. It doesn't work. it's simply does not work. You've actually got a fully lockdown victoria did. And if you do it you don't have to for too long every day. You wait can be a week at the other end and the other thing that we should be doing. Is speeding up vaccine approval. I know that we've said we can wait but now the face. We studies in the morning when victoria was in lockdown. But now the face re studies are in and it was fine to wait while we didn't have a problem we weren't there was no reason to just you know russian along because we could learn from overseas. But now that you've got this outbreak and it's big and is going to spread potentially through australia's biggest city and crippled potentially cripple the economy. There's a very good argument for getting going with immunization. So the tj good administration simply has to give a approval. I know go on about how they don't have an emergency approval process but that can be organized and they can they can be. There are ways for them to give urgent approval for this vaccine. It's not bureaucratically impossible and actually get the whatever they've got here in stock in terms of the five vaccine get into sydney's northern beaches and ring-fence immunization give it to healthcare workers their age care. Give it to the elderly and then you can give it to an efficient way to use it before it spreads. I realized we don't know that it's prevents. Transmission always really knows it prints disease but like everything else you just taking a chance that that it will prevent transmission and hope that it does and give it in that light. There's a lot that we do with this pandemic. we're not absolutely sure what what is the end of the individual things that work but you just gotta hit it. And now we've got a vaccine. We should hit in places like the uk and the us imperative to vaccinate is pretty obvious because the scale of the outbreak there is so massive in global terms. What's happening in sydney is pretty mine like does it still justify fostering vaccination he is because it could become big quickly quickly and be very difficult contain and create a of time now. This is a different public health. Aim this is much more like what. They did with smallpox with smallpox in poor countries massey. Muniz ation didn't work. It was very hard to implement it the way they eliminated. Smallpox was exactly this. This sort of ring-fenced vaccination you find a case and you immunize people around that person so that you you get this sort of halo. Immunized immunized effect and with the pfizer vaccine. You get fifty percent effectiveness at least with the disease with just the first does and within a few days and then one thousand four two or three three weeks so you. The effect is pretty quick. Would be an of faith that it prevents transmission. But it's worth ago. Why would we sit on this. Just go so at the moment the restrictions that are in place in new south wales in sydney are in place until wednesday night so basically the day before christmas eve is that going to be long enough or are we to say these extended while the restrictions are only on the northern beaches not greater metropolitan sydney. So that's not control the pandemic. I mean my. That's my prediction. It will not control the pandemic unfortunately spreading covid nineteen spreading. So that's the problem. I hope it will. Let's hope that contact tracers and not being overwhelmed and that the traces that are the cases that are popping up in south west sydney in eastern suburbs of city in the northern suburbs like hornsby they can pin them down the they're saying that they're traceable to the northern beaches outbreak but who they spread them to are the contact. Are they able to trace to them. So let's hope that they do the do contain it. But that's the so then. You've got the the lockdown simply there. You've got no mandated masks. They're just pleading with people to wear masks but just mandate masks sydney white right now. Just do it why. It's so frustrating that they're not doing that. Evidence based approach so christmas becomes unfortunately in sydney a superspreader event. Potentially if they haven't sorted this out and you're really done to very low levels of new cases where adly quickly quickly if you're not very low levels of new cases. They can't afford to allow christmas to go ahead with big family occasions. Otherwise it's going to go nuts unfortunately so the other thing that we really don't know much about yet he's exactly who's who when it comes to these outbreak and that was something that we were quite critical of the victorian authorities about when they were grappling with. The outbreak is new south. Wales being transparent enough well looking at the data. They're giving it is much easier to understand. There were lots of times in victoria. Had no clue whether we're talking about change. During the day the definitions were awed. Here you can see the breakdown you can see where the cases are. You can see where where there's locally acquired but they don't know where the sources. I think it's two or three at the moment is a little bit of discrepancy from the press conference and what they've published since the press conference. Yesterday there were two at press conference soon to be three on the table by today. I'm not sure we haven't had time too early for us to luke. Why would why we record this so nasty question. It does seem more transparent but what's lacking is public health measures in the community to control it and give the contact tracers a break and let them follow it through contact tracers but no matter how good the are if you get too large numbers of cases they get overwhelmed and getting extremely tired whereas masks would help just reduce that spread that little bit. That might make a difference. Yeah it's a really critical a couple of days in the lead up to christmas. But we're going to be keeping you informed but that's all we've got time for today
Interview With Author David Yoon
"This week. I'm thrilled to have david yunan. Whose newest book super fake love song is out now. An conversation that we pretty much covered all talk about his newest book a his debut his writing journey and a lot about what he was like as a young person so really enjoyed talking to david. Hope you enjoy listening listening so david. What book hooked you. What book hooked me It's it was when i was in middle school. I don't know exactly how old i was. But i remember talking to my librarian and i was like i don't know to read their so many books in the school library and she just pulled out the halloween tree by ray bradbury and If you read this book but it's it has these awesome woodcut Drawings in it and it came up a long time ago. Like in the sixties. I want to say and this is way before like killington and the newspaper from the nightmare before christmas. But it's kind of there's a character in it. That is the skeleton dude with. I think he has a pumpkin for a head. I know he doesn't but he's like this very skeleton like figure and he's very creepy and he's very Theatrical like jack's kellington was and he challenges This group of boys on halloween when their trick or treating to to give up a year of their lives to save the life of their best friend Pippin who's at homesick can't trick or treat and so they travel around the world and learn about like all these Reports and customs that surrounding death and they wind up in mexico and they eat The sugar skulls and that is like. I'm going to give up a year my life to save my friend and It was just so it's like super atmospheric and super moody. This is awesome so then at of course read all very bradberry. I could find reading stuff. I shouldn't have been reading and so middle school time. Was that in age. Like were you a big reader. Then was it hard to get you to read or was it something where you pretty much constantly always had some sort of book. You're working your way through. I mean i was always reading. Yeah for sure Is reading a lot of stuff But then that book kind of it was like my first sorta grownup book. I guess and after that i started reading a of piers anthony fancy novels and i read like fifteen close and i was like wait a second. It's kind of the same story over and over again and that's florida and Then i started reading a lot of stephen king which i know i shouldn't have been reading And my dad was a weird guy to he. he He studied victorian like them. He he focused on the metaphysical poets. Okay it adds seoul university in career and then when it came to the united states he studied library science all things. wow and so he was like you need to be reading old man and the sea You need to be reading. Was it on human bondage and then lady chatterley's lover and was like that. I don't think i should be reading this. But he didn't care he's like the crazy. Daddy shows like the horror movies to his kids because he wants them to to Have a good sense of the canon. Anna is exposed to a lot of stuff that i probably shouldn't have been but i'm grateful for it and i would imagine while it was definitely helping Definitely helpful for your reading life to have a dad like that and that was kind of pushing it but was there any sort of rebellion there. That because you were being forced to read so many books were pushed upon you that reading. You rebelled against or turn against it because it was it was assigned by by dad I don't know it's hard to remember like like reading moby dick before high school. Sure looks like there's no way. I'm gonna finish so even if it did come from like a friend i don't know if i would have just cause but it did. It did feel like homework for sure At the same time like my older brother. I have one older brother. And he was a big reader to He used to read at the dinner table and it was like a problem. You know But i you know. I'm a little brother saw. I'll read to on just like him. I want to compete in everything we do. Because we're siblings. So he also turned me into the reader just sort of inadvertently and so when you got to high school especially when those are when in in those english courses you're being assigned full size novels and things like that. Didn't you find and really getting into what's canonized literature. We'll call it. Were you kind of a step ahead. That you think In those courses because dad already sorta had you on that home regiment of a reading those types of books. That's a funny question. Because i just realized really recently i mean my dad passed away like over a year ago. and so It just when you're when your parent passes away and makes you think a lot about your relationship in like your whole history. And i was like dude. My dad was like an outsized influence in in my interest in writing in books. I never appreciated him fully for that. He just kinda did it sure Yes and when. I hit high school. It was english. Classes where my absolute favorite My english teachers were my absolute favorite. My locker got broken into one time. So isis i was like no lockers and i used my english teacher's classroom as my locker That's how much we trusted. Each other's liked each other so that was sort of the year of You know camus. And ray bradbury. Shirley jackson and margaret atwood. That's like when i started really getting into those guys and and then i was like all right. This is this is really important to me. Plus i also had study hall. Not how i had studied hall but Journal i wrote in my journal pretty much every day so and so i take it

"Works lyrics embodied so many elements that victorians craved making it. An instant hit the poignant mixed with the supernatural components kept with the fusion of romanticism in art literature. Music at the time. Especially when it's around death. And this unique brand victorian sentimental death romanticism brought with it a fascination with harbingers of death and death superstitions one of the most popular of these victorian folklore of death was the clock. The clock often fell into two categories. At the time in certain instances they may tick down to the death of a person like a death watch or they may just stop at a time of death of its owner.

Eighteen twenty five and it said quote at a northern late wake. The clock is shrouded and stopped to signify that time has become blank for the deceased an quote another variation at the victorian clock superstition was that to stop the clocks with a sign of the spirit of the dead that their life is over and they must move on to the next life but clocks. Were just one of the many items involved victorian harbingers of death and superstition. Chris woodward wrote of the nineteenth century focus on harbingers and beth superstition in her book. The victorian book of the dead saying quote despite the eras great scientific advances the victorians lived in a world of strange premonitions death omens and tokens mortality. One of the leading spiritualist publications was called the spiritual telegraph suggesting that messages could fly along. Telegraph wires this. Modern electrical magic light may even bridge the chasm between life and death itself no matter how often science explain the supernatural people. Continue to have prophetic dreams.

Birds doves and owls and some of the ways they foretold death was by flying against windows or mysteriously appearing places. Birds are not normally found another. Prominent ellman of death were apparitions of coffins or tombstones as in the belief that when a grandfather's clock casts a shadow of a coffin. Someone in the house will soon die or one. A piece of coffin shaped coal shoots out of a fire in the direction of a particular person. That person will soon die. Additionally the sounds of coffin making the sawing the planning an ailing were considered omens of death and british in german folklore other widespread death omens of the victorian era include. If you break a bell you will hear of a death if you break dinner bell. It is a sign of a death. If you find broken glass in a bedroom it is sign of death to find a pair of black gloves. Left at your home as a sign at someone in the house will die. It is a sign of bad luck sickness. Death and other evils have glass dishes break on a pantry shelf if a jug or any vessel vibrates without cause it is a sign of death if you move into a new house throughout in something alive i as for instance a dog or cat as the first to enter the first to die down.

The intuition of the news in just a country town. Emily dickenson eighteen. Sixty three and dickinson's phrase dark parade in. This poem captures the spirit of the victorian cult of death. A societal movement built on strict morning roles in funerals the fetishizes of fairmont of the at movement. That was meant to beautify and romanticize a horrific the hor- the pain of death is subdued in a grim beauty of elaborate ceremony and in the predictable stages of public grief but dickinson in using words like numb mechanically and stiffly conveys a sense of how the ceremony pushed people forward in the anticipated steps of the process. And how the shock of the moment of loss these ceremonies also in a strange way helped depersonalize personalized death. So that we might just be able to get through the first steps dickinson. I to the person who has died as it in the poem before the medical advances of the twentieth and twenty first centuries and before more stringent labor laws and safety regulations were fought for and set into law. Human mortality was faced by people much more frequently than we generally have to deal with. Today there are entirely too many ways to die. In the victorian era death in childbirth for both mother and child was common accidents caused by animals and equipment on farms was frequent fires. Oil lamps made home interiors no less dangerous epidemics of all manner of diseases swept through populations with no hope of treatment and of course in the united states civil war may death a terrifying looming presence. In everyday life there was even a manmade epidemic that doctors and journalists at the time off referred to as the kremlin holocaust death by kremlin sometimes occurred while the soft flesh of the unfortunate where was punctured or disembowelled by the unforgiving metal frames encircling them. The unwieldy hoops of crinoline often got caught on wagon. Wheels the wear shoes on stairs furniture and factory machinery and really list is practically endless but death by crinoline. Most frequently came as a result of fire. Crinoline flammability was widely reported at the time with estimates of at least three thousand women during the late eighteen. Fifty s and eighteen sixties in england from kremlin related fires. Fashion deaths of various kinds often reported on during the victorian era caused by poisonous dies and garments gloves and stockings. Women also died from something as simple as vulnerable celluloid ornaments. Combs set in their hair. it was endless. What of the strangest. And dare i say most macabre of these fashion deaths that i read of which reported in the new york times on november fourteenth nineteen o two killed by paper. Shame mask paint melted and caused girl's death by blood poisoning. Orange new jersey november thirteen little frieda hanky the fourteen year old daughter of mr and mrs hanky of twenty four church street of this city is dead at her home as a result of blood poisoning contracted by wearing a paper machine mask at a halloween party. She recently gave a number of her young friends at a party. All the children wore masks and there was much romping. The perspiration on the girl's face melted the paint on the mask and this contaminated in abrasion on her upper lip though death seem to be constantly lying in wait around every corner and the deaths of loved ones was expected to be a frequent occurrence. I didn't mean that the victorians were any less by those losses than we are. They felt all the same grief and sorrow we do. I've often heard from modern day. People who believe mothers and fathers of that day were not as grieved by the death of a child because they all knew they were going to lose at least one or two but that simply isn't true. There are a plethora of documents that say otherwise that speak of their utter devastation. This sort of sorrow was demonstrated by the very woman. This era was named for queen victoria. Who ruled over the british empire. Though european royalty weren't known for their marriages being love matches as that was rarely. Ever the priority victoria and albert had great affection for each other on the night of her wedding. Victoria wrote in her diary quote. I never never spent such an evening. My dearest dearest dear albert his excessive love and affection. Gimme feelings of heavenly love and happiness. I could have never hoped to felt before. He clashed me in his arms and kissed each other again and again his beauty his sweetness and gentleness really how can i ever be thankful enough to have such a husband to call by name of tenderness. I have never yet heard us to me before was bliss beyond belief. Oh this was the happiest day of my life and quote unfortunately twenty one years later. Victoria's beloved husband died of typhoid fever at a young age forty two on december fourteenth eighteen sixty one and their love and tenderness for each other seems to have only grown during their marriage. Shortly after. albert's death victoria wrote to her daughter. Saying quote how i lent on him for all and everything without whom i did. Nothing moved not a finger arranged.

When I was nineteen, I started whacking local pope with my best friend as a summer job. This Mr Traditional Victorian pulp and was split into two sides with the ball being situated in the middle. When I started working their staff joked that the place is haunted but I didn't believe them I, figured the pope was just super. And it must have been old pipes making the noise. A few weeks in the landlord became so sick his upstairs flat was empty. The. Manager at the time took over landlord duties and not left me my best friend, the coke and the manager working there. We will all female. The Selah started giving me majorly creepy vibes. But it's a dark damp cellar. So I don't think too much of it. The Selah had a huge ice machine in the far corner with the dray above it and brackets. It's a door that opens up to the road above so beer bottles can be delivered. I was refilling the ice bullets when I felt a cold hand stroke straight down my back. I freaked out and started running upstairs. It's worth noting that we must have run up and down the cellar status multiple times during each shift. And never before had a nail been on a step. I was rushing up the stairs and I tripped over as I. Put my hand out to save myself. It went through a huge rusty nail. My hand was bleeding a my instincts kicked in. So I ran back upstairs. My friends saw the blood and told me to go to hospital to get checked out. She checked the says multiple times and a nail was never found. But my blood was all over the stairs. That was the first encounter I had. The second was at the end of a really busy Saturday shift. The football had been on and the bar had been impact. So it was myself, my friend and the Monitor all on shift. We were cleaning down at the end of the night. No one else was in the building. The manager said she was going upstairs to count the takings and told us to get on with cleaning the pope. Five minutes later she runs downstairs and asks that my friend come sit with her. She looked excuse the phrase like she'd seen a ghost. We asked to what was wrong. And she told us she could hear someone tapping on the wall of the office. In brackets, the office was at the very top of the stairs and the landlords flat was to the right. As I said before the landlord wasn't there at the time. We told that it was probably nothing just the pipes. My friend mental anyway and I got on with cleaning. A few minutes later, they called me asking me to go upstairs to sit with them. At this point I genuinely thought they were playing a prank on me. But I went up anyway. I sat there for five or so minutes nothing strange happened. So I stood up and told them I'm going to carry on cleaning up. But they both insisted I sit down. So I said out. Loud. This anyone here? Bang three times. We'll sat there in silence for twenty seconds also. Then three really loud bangs echo throughout the room. Petrified. We all run downstairs and decided to lock up and cleaned tomorrow. The next day we all joke that the bangs came from whoever took me in the Selah and we jokingly named the Ghost Enid. A few days later, the landlord returned home from hospital. We haven't told him about the banking or Enid. He thought that the ball talking to us. When he told us, he'd had a really terrifying dream last Saturday night. He said in his dream he stored in the cellar. And a black cloud was in the corner of the room below the dray door. He said he felt scared and tried to scream but couldn't make the noise. Then, the black cloud tend to him and said. They call me Enid. Then, the midst showed him a woman dressed in Victorian dress beating her husband to death in the corner of the Selah whether I mean is now stood. then. He woke up. I looked at my friends announced who had told him. To stop trying to prank me. But they all turned white. Started, shouting at each other demanding to know who told the landlord. Whilst the landlord sat there looking confused. He asked what was wrong and we told him what had happened. That's when he told us the pope has always been halted. And the ghost liked young bar mates. The final thing happens to me was on a quiet day shift. This was on a weekday and I would be looking to see more than a few people for the entire shift. I would spend the time deep cleaning and doing stock. The does into the ball. All had bells. So we would hear if somebody came in. I would also be able to see people coming through the doors the way it was all laid out. I was stood with my back to the boss side doing something on my phone. When I hit a cough behind me. I spun round to see an old man sat at the Baugh. My heart started to race. As I hadn't had this past Koeman. I figured I must've zoned out. I apologized and asked what they would like to drink. And the old man said. I Bet your warm. This pope's gone to the dogs. In a really aggressive. I laughed bent down to get an Ale glass. When I stood up the mom was gone. He couldn't have left as I would have seen him. I felt this really honest feeling. and run. Into, the kitchen. The chef who was the only the past working? was doing stock. And I asked them if Amana just come in to the. She told me now and asked if I'm okay. I burst into tears started to panic. And then she said Oh so you've met him then. I started asking what she meant. And that's when she told me that women often see an old man lot side of the ball or stood in the corner of the toilets. I told her I felt sick and went home.

And an investigation that should. Run its course at arm's length government. Somebody's coming into heaven. Ask about that later on in on. Yeah I want to get to the full out in a moment. Spit I I was hoping we could talk through branch stacking itself. What is it just as a basic definition? And how is it usually done if you don by paying for People's memberships? POTTIES pipe. You're on membership to stop hybrids. It's recruiting paper and paint memberships, sometimes, even signing people up who don't know what they're signing up for, and then using them to guide power to have a whole lot of votes, internal party elections, and then the people that decide who gets pre selected to parliament, so effectively turns out who's be coming into the parliament, and then who becomes minister and then schools ministers sharp the policy direction of government oral position. It's basically Clinton manipulation to try and get power within the party by recruiting and paying for memberships. Sometimes it was knowledge to guide a advice and parties tried stop this, but parties also tend to expect that a lot of people are doing. This stories about brand jacking for years and years and years and parties lost and look at it. The members who were part of that Stack Martin will be allowed to join the party. But there hasn't been any systemic attack on trying to tackle it and stamp it out. It's almost feels like it's an accepted part and parcel. GRUBBY world of any political party is part of the problem in dealing with bronze stacking as a blige that ease difficult to pin down because there's sometimes a fine line between legitimate recruitment, and what what we're, thank constitutes branch stacking. I think that's spot on any parties. Parties treat these allegations in some people are sometimes allegations of branch backing, just affection faction within a party, getting frustrated that the other one's doing better than them or unhappy. They're about to lose internal power, but the time he's genuine, just pushing in hopes of members. Ahead of Upcoming votes to get that factional will get that. How vice so they can get the outcome that won't. Be Too hard or not. It's because it's not against the law and such. It's more the. Against Party rules and it corrupts the political process about genuine potty. Democracy an frustrates people who join any political party because I believe in the values and what change when they're competing. It's people who are spitting out life and the whole time.

The origins of the 'Subway Tile'
"Would you guess is the origin of subway title well? I lived in New York for a while. They have all these little tiles on the wall. Sometimes in the really pretty stations, they even have you know like the street written entirely on the wall like it's a beautiful thing and a lot of older restaurants and older buildings in New York have that tile like I would assume it's just an old wall treatment that keeps things that might get wet or dirty protected, so you've described tile. And? You said you originated mainly in the New York subway subway. Maybe so this article says that is maybe a little bit of a myth did a bit more research and I'm not sure she can debunk it entirely. What the author this article says is that the idea of white porcelain tile is something that predated the New, York subway system because in the Victorian era, which is like mid eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds. White Tile was a staple in middle class Victorian homes. Because it was hygenic, it was easy to clean dirt was easy to spot, and it was almost a contrast to the more fanciful or colorful tiles that were used on fireplace, hearths, or fireplace surrounds like if you've seen those old houses that have really pretty like per lesson, Greens up around the fireplace. Fireplace those so this author says it was the designers that New York. Subway system that carried the function of hygienic white porcelain tile when they were designing the subway stations in one, thousand, nine four. That's when New York City subway system began, and they said they chose it for the same reasons that would make the subway stations look and feel cleaner they. They feel brighter and that's where the subway Kinda took off. This author says that no one is quite sure how term subway tile coined or win got coined. Allow historian, not really historian. Sherry Peter Sake to take a stab at this. There are lots of things that occur for a while in design and don't have a term and then someone mainstream and. And it gets term so I. believe that what happened is a lot of people were like well. Basic White Tile doesn't need a term that's what will use in kitchens and bathrooms for awhile, and then when the entire New York subway system started using that basic white tile. It became known as SOA job. Yeah, but I think I wasn't clear the subway. We're the ones who popularized the three by six tile that sort of to buy one rectangular shape that is placed in a running bond pattern. See you're saying that wasn't in kitchens and bathrooms and the subway designers were like hey. I got an idea bricklayer pattern. Yes, I thought the history of this particular part was a little fuzzy, so all linked to some of the other articles I read in preparation for this segment, actually did a little bit of research whether I'm conveyed inaccurately here who knows? But the other interesting thing about the subway tile discussion was she was talking about how it became popular more recently, and why we see it so often, and they said part of this more recent history subway tile is because in the nineteen nineties, more artisan colorful statement tile became very popular, especially like for back splashes, and in response to that people started going back to the subway tile, the clean white porcelain tile as a way to make a nod to more historic or timeless or classic designs follow question You keep saying porcelain, but isn't subway tile ceramic. Do I! Yes, I think it is ceramic. I, meant polished I. Think Read My own word. Word as polished White Tile Porcelain, why twenty eight ceramic tile has generally what's used? Yes, the other note was interesting on this. They said part of the reason. It's become more popular in these last couple of decades is because of the design of Schiller's liquor bar or restaurant in New York, city I love that place. We've been there together. It was like actually know that place. That was a favourite of my sisters when I lived there, so I've probably been there three or four times, and yes, it sticks out in my brain is a place where I I sort of saw subway tile used as designed feature like the same way you see rooms. Rooms now they have Florida sealion subway tile, maybe sometimes in a bathroom, surrounding the entire four walls of the room like that's kind of how Schiller's liquor bar took subway tile. Even the bathrooms are fabulous. Please go tell me how much you love it. Yes, it's a gorgeous place. I felt so in the know when I read that. It was like I have been there. There are probably like ten percent of things that we used to go to New York that are still in New York 'cause we've been out of New York for like fourteen years, but that's a classic. Let's move on though from subway tile to the fiddle leaf big. Ooh, what? What are we going to learn about this? It is a native plant of western

Detectives were relatively new innovation. The Metropolitan Police Service in London was founded in eighteen. Twenty nine and a detective bureau was added in eighteen forty two but it wasn't until nineteen nineteen that the first woman was officially hired as a police officer in the UK. The women went out to make arrests until Nineteen twenty-three the women detectives of Nineteenth Century Fiction then were complete fantasies their real life counterparts wouldn't arrive until the next century. The Academic Joseph Aka Snow once wrote that the existence of Fictional lady detectives quote constituted a profound fantasy Zia female empowerment. It's phenomenon though that expresses the tumultuous overlapping changes that were occurring at the time to women's societal roles. Innovia says awesome later. Lady detectives the ones who emerged in the eighteen eighties. Through the early twentieth century. As coinciding with a phenomenon on that prioritizes women's advancements Likley while there are suffragettes marching for vote and while women are entering the workforce the women detectives a part of a larger embodiment of this trend in popular culture especially fiction. There's a body of literature. His new woman literature. The new woman is the Visser Surgical Rioting bloomer wearing progressive young woman who emerges as an archetype but based in reality circa the turn turn-of-the-century. There's a lot of literature about women who get abortions work in professional capacities and who deal with sort of resistance. Society Society has to progress and sort of ICONOCLASM difference and so related active literature sort of seems to be swept up or not it it also expresses the contemporary thinking about gender in other respects the perceived differences between men and women are an important aspect of how these women detective character conceived as. We'll see later his Olympia. With an example from Bram Stoker's eighteen ninety seven novel Dracula which she considers to be essentially a detective. If Noval with Meena Hawker acting as the main investigate there's a fascinating moment in Dracula where Van helsing talking about. How the Vampire has a child brain? Many when he breaks off to say that but Meena the woman who performs the detective function in Dracula actually has like a man brain which is which is pretty rare. And everyone's like Oh yeah mean definitely has a membrane all these different factors and using Zaidi's about these questions were represented in the female detective character. Who is is to me? This hallmark of you know questions about female. Potential disturb trying to burst out of this out. The sort of mercury show of course grappling with ideas of a woman's role and potential is not unique to detective fiction. There are plenty of interesting female. Hi Ruins and other types of literature to you know criticism of Jane Eyre and Gothic Literature in which there are female heroines. Who Do you also investigative work on to certain degrees criticism? That also exists. Then there's always been a pushback against these sort of Strong female protagonists nests. What we might call an age net flicks? The strong female lead. This character has been around for a very long time. But in the Victorian era with the specific profession of the detective There seems to be a way in which all of these things that people have been wondering about women on sort of merge in its most this vibrancy and groundbreaking things so these qualities had been perforated in literature in Women's focused or sensation or gothic literature. Her for a long time but in this moments when the detective Carter merges this comes ahead. One of the catalysts catalysts for this is the rise of women's education at the same time as these women detectives were first appearing in print. Women students were campaigning to be allowed to study at universities estimate for the first time with the aim of entering professions that were previously only open to men this all feeds into the detective fiction to as women are marching in for the right to vote and as they are attempting to enter the workforce more competitive capacities as journalists in another related fields and as they are certainly educating reading themselves. It stands to reason that there'd be literature support surrounding this. There's a sentence in some of these stories that some of these women detectives detectives have outpaced society. They've managed to acquire a high level of education and accomplishment. But there's not really any jobs available that they can respect to do so. The right is a fiction. Come up with the perfect solution. The over educated young woman should become a detective. You these lady. Detective characters are are incredible very smart very accomplished young women who are looking for places to news their exemplary skills. And they're wonderful educations but also who are looking for social opportunities that are less restrictive. So Grant Allen's Lowest Kaley is a young woman gruber to Cambridge degree graduates. Pennywise but as a spirit for adventure and comes a bicycle sales longer than throughout Europe and inbox on a series of adventures. That require her deductive skills and she solves mysteries and also been There's this really wonderful unconventional social. Social narratives accompanying that detective. Profession seems to be a place for these women to news their exemplary skills which which even the barriers women face in society at this time are somewhat useless. A woman who graduates with a university degree and then goes goes to work in some sort of capacity that won't fulfill that education will have skills that are seat better being excessive the detectives profession News in a way that is really exciting of progressive. There would also examples of this Dora. Mo- created by the Irish lawyer and politician and McDonnell Botkin first appears in a collection of short stories in nineteen hundred. She's a medical doctor with a math degree from Cambridge which which is a fantasy in itself since women were not awarded full degrees by that university until nineteen forty eight. Dora can't find work as a woman doctor so she becomes a private detective riding a bicycle and carrying a gun. Hilda way to create ground. Allen is a brilliant nurse who souls medical mysteries stories because advancing further inhumane. Profession is very difficult and then Hawker a talented schoolteacher. WHO KEEPS THE PLOT OF DRACULA ADVANCING WITH THE SHEER Air Force of her logical brain? So in all of these books specifically detective fiction and then the ones that are sort of on the fringes defection including Dracula there. There are these very well educated. Very Clever problem solving and keen women who moved the narrative sword unsold also education or like investment in educating oneself is a big shared trait of lady detectives.

"The title of First Detective Story is disputed one. It's it's probably most often awarded to Edgar. Allan Poe's the murders in the remorse. A short story first published in eighteen forty one that sees a sleuth see Augusta Palm solve a case using frazee nation or a process of deductive reasoning. Charles Dickens bleak house from eighteen fifty three was the first West novel oval to include an investigation by a police. Detective I think. Although Inspector Buckets madder investigation is very much. A minor plot it's Wilkie Collins though who who usually takes the honors for the first proper detective novel with eighteen sixty eight the moonstone t s Eliot certainly thought it so anyway there are other possible contend is too but the point is that those middle decades of the nineteenth century is when the idea of story propelled by this new figure of the detective who investigates and Resolves Crime over. The course of the story really took hold something that all of these l. e. who-done-its having common though is essentially the men which given the time that they come from. Isn't that surprising. Married women in Britain couldn't even legally owned property until eighteen eighty two let alone catch criminals. No one nineteenth century detection like so many other professions at the time both in fiction unreality with the sole preserve of men. That's certainly what I thought until I started researching this topic more thoroughly and found out how wrong.

"And producer Malkin Victorian, Holly. Hi, hello. Thank you for having us. Oh, very excited to have you. Now, you guys have partnered to develop Fellay wind jewelry for people in pets. How did this come about? And well, let's talk I felt is a very unique name what came about I in name or their the jewelry. The jury design. I was first born about a year ago. So yes, jewelry designers. I in. The name was gosh. It just didn't want to come. It was a long process Holly, and I had met back in January, and I was still living in New York, and she was living in Los Angeles. So we started this partnership across coast, and we could not agree on a name. We had all sorts of names from, you know, very simple to bury spiritual creative funny. Everything we could imagine we just could not could not agree on one could not nothing felt right? Think it was mostly it. It didn't feel right. 'cause we we're pretty insane. But it's just we couldn't get one that really felt like boom. And then. And then. Are you ready and then late one night? Now, I'm west coast. She's New York. So it's really late there. I text her because I started going back to my angels. And which is one of the inspirations for the design, and I found archangel fell EA. And it's not as well known as some of the other angels and archangels really well known at all because. Yeah, we researched it, and there's very very little about it. So I text Victoria, not sure that she would be into going with anything about an angel because we just want to go one way or another weather is angel or superhero, whatever it was. But I was really excited that she was very very much into the meaning behind it. Because archangel Fellay looks over dogs specifically and also animals and nature. So that's really how it's. How the name? Yeah. And we decided to put our own spin on it. We changed the spelling of it. And yeah, that's how we came to be finally. Us made a rhyme. I love it. I love it. It's really interesting, and it feels to me. And maybe this was the intent that the wearing the pieces pieces at your animal can wear your kid can wear. It's like, they're, you know, the Felli angels looking over him or her. Yeah. And I will add we actually forgot to mention Holly that we also started looking up origins of words and stuff and we found out that oh V Las Greek for to help. And we also had planned to help animals with the line. So it it fit even more perfectly. Yeah. It was. It was really, you know, how you you wait, and you wait, you just have faith that it's it's all going to work out. And it really did. And then some because really the the name Fellay is is beautiful and what it stands for. And and the feeling that it invokes, especially when you look at the design. It is a strong. And yet it's gentle like angels. And and protective, and it just brings about a lot of different feelings. And for sure goes with how how we feel about our dogs and our on our cats are pets. I guess you could put this on a gerbil if he really had to. It's all animals. You know, I think everything by fish right pretty much. Although, you know, I'd be the one to try if it's a big fish. All right. We're gonna be right back after this break. And then we're going to talk about what is in the fella.

"The Victorian government was not only coming across that data. But also passing it on as well. Yeah. So this was from the same little session of research that I was doing but on a slightly different topic. I was looking up of types of contraception and one of the websites of came across during that research was a Victorian government run website, cold the better health channel. And I've got some really good information. This really great info about all sorts of different health conditions and procedures and what not. But what I wasn't expecting that. They also have a little widget. We embedded in this cold at this. Which is the idea of it is that it makes it easier for you to share their web saw with of a papal and on social media. But in the background, even if you don't interact with that, we did it it shares. The fact that you've visited that website, and the key woods that are associated with that website. So in my case that was things to do with contraception. But it could be anything else that could be various STI is more complicated cancer any any sort of medical condition. I guess you researching. And of course, that is where this stuff becomes really potentially quite dangerous. If you've got sensitive things like now, you've you've shared with the notion that you considering not having any children, but if you've got really sensitive things like whether you have an STI or whether you've had to Bush, and this is a conversation that suddenly come up around the the. The my health record compensation fat as well. I will say that I actually find this. We'd -ly a little bit relieving because about ten years ago. I was working on TV show for the cooled hungry based and one of the ideas, we had was to see how much of my Dodig could be hacked, and so we actually employed a hacker to find as much about me as possible. And of course, I'm very boring. And so I think that the an interesting stop. So as part of it, I went off, and I set up a fake Ashley Madison account, which was the Daldry website. We set up a bunch of dining has just to say that they could find something and they found bloody. This is on one level this is horrifying on another level. I'm actually finding this a little bit relieving that the project does work. It has value. You just say this. I'm into in terms of how it's changed your behavior has it changed your behavioral because you sound pretty take away to begin with. It's a better win. So I think like one of the things that strikes me is that if if we're okay with oldest and we don't need to change behavior at all. But if as a population when not okay with sharing this type of private Dada. Unexpectedly without explicit consent. Then we need to change the way way behave in order to convince tech companies that behave needs to change or governments that might be regulating them to to step in and say how they can use this Dada. So into my personal behavior. I'm going to be installing a bunch more kind of browser plug ins that block they sorts of requests, let make you browsing experience foster or slow out of curiosity. It's I would expect it to make it faster. There's a couple of caveats that I guess so it's really really difficult to identify which of the requests up Hughley marketing, and or for the purposes of extracting information, and which of them are actually needed for the operation of the website of the app that he's making the request, and so sometimes browser plug ins that intended to preserve privacy, actually, block, a request, false, positives and false negatives. So they might block request that actually is necessary for the functioning of the of the apple the website, or they might let through a request that is purely to extract information, but it will block a bunch and the pretty accurate, and they will..
