"The one key show. We cheat y pipe of christmas. Well we'll brown up. The speculation will west to once in. Wales p resumes out will discover out fat in the pedantic and the new dates route from iran is coming up. The flexibility students have afforded over the last eighteen months. They're asking for the flexibility. To some extent remain and if we as a sector decide to keep that flexibility then place coming to a university campus leaving on campus may not be as important as we have seen over the last decade. Welcome to the monkey show. We came to this week's higher education vs policy and analysis. I'm you'll high skip dickinson and head to help us understand. What's going on this week. Contrite sector of terrific guests guilford osama connie's the pbc education at the university of surrey. Asami highlight of the week please. He has been fabulous testifying. The students who are now really worrying ever the exam but you know we're helping them out with their exams which are coming up assessments of the middle of the week excellent stuff. I mean bombers debbie holy professor of learning innovation at born at the university w highlight the weeklies. Well we've had graduation this week and this morning as i'm here we're running an online exam for four hundred fifty students so there we go. That's a good week. Fantastic stuff finding lost to share somewhere. No one's really show. Where david kernahan he's won ki's associate editor at your highlight of the way. Please leave in the world of the work for the moment Gigs are back. My band played at the weekend. It was a halloween gig. We all dressed up. We played halloween songs. That was fabulous. Lovely We won't be able to clip of that lighter so yes we start this week with a potential white paper other than stuff on our anti there was scant mention of hp and the spending review and budget last week leaves a bunch of questions hanging and we hear that may well mean the white paper on eight coming before christmas to include things on fees and funding all response. Maybe p q i stuff on spelling start chiefs. Who knows debbie was thinking about what we could say about this. I actually went back to the original paper which was presented in parliament. Way back in may two thousand nine hundred nineteen and it just struck me that this was review of both education funding and the funding side seems to have kind of taken in conversation sins. I think the overview was setting out key principles saying it's a story of both and neglect and this depends on students whether that the fifty percent who participate in h. e. or the rest and there's a huge disparity and it just struck me and all the fuss and clatter and policy briefings. We've kind of lost sight of the students. So two principles stood out for me principle. Seven that post eighteen education cannot be left entirely to market for this and that are post education post. Eighteen education needs to be forward looking is going to be a response. I'm wondering how you can create a compelling narrative because if you look at the other policy areas it's quite complex because we've got lifelong learning has kind of you know very high on the agenda and expecting all of us to have portfolio careers in the future and then doing one set of skills eighteen and being sorted so that seems little dated so it sounded like lifelong learning seem to be perhaps a little higher up the political arena and we've already had announcements on efi funding so yeah. I'm not sure with all the other things that are going on. And the announcements of cash nipping kind of re announced about five times with chile. The space there for a compelling narrative to respond that puts the students at the heart interesting. I mean look daycare. We say this a lot. Olga was of commissioned and launched in a very very different political climate. Even though it was actually not long ago in. I mean it was quite a long time ago but it just you know. Politics is completely change. Doesn't it the thing that people forget about. Olga is the amount of it that has been responded to and the amount that as being a delivered. The leading up eventually funding wasn't inaugur is happening. The lifelong learning entitlement all similar arrangements were in order and are happening. changes to apprenticeships making them easier for employers to run worried. All on the happening. So alo- is a very different time in politics. I mean the this was supposed to be a quick review after the twenty seventeen election. When people got scared about jeremy corbyn remember that that was a thing but we don't really have anything comparable going on. At the moment. We do have the big pieces of policy machinery. The lifelong learning entitlement. Keep screaming to anyone. That will listen is massive. Change everything in twenty twenty five. We only really have two years before that. So won't get on the site this week. If you've already got two years before a big change that you know is happening already and you know that people generally light because the leave a fundamentally is a good idea Speaking administered and sat at particularly ham-fisted way. But it is a good idea. It's racing you do. Why on earth would you ruin that and Spoiled a pitch for your own election stuff beforehand to make a change and do some fee cats sauce fiddling around the edges.

"wales" Discussed on Ghostly
"It's one of those kinds of things. I don't know it's me i. I actually had a hard time seeing it at first. Because i didn't i did too. I didn't look at it when it was like the circled part greg because i wanted like hey i want to see you know what it you know if i can see where this is and it actually took me a minute to find it And so i see what you're saying where there's like kinda son that's coming down But man that part where the figure is. I mean that is really it is really distinct. I have a hard time seeing like the people behind it. I see no people. I think you know. She said they zoomed in and kind kinda looked at it that way so i. It's it's a little harder to see that part But no it that man that really looks like a like a figure there. One time i looked up to the sky. And i swear i saw homer simpson in the clouds. But that's just my mind trying to make a connection to that because homer simpson was like my tv dad kind of thing so interesting. They think this is explaining. But i'm just saying it's one of those things that it's like your mind just kind of tries to make sense of what it seeing and not that it seeing anything unusual. It's just trying to put some some life to something that's really not there Interesting yeah well. I think it looks. I am okay so i'm gonna give this another six. Okay that's pretty high. I mean to me. I it does look like a figure but it's not an eight or a nine or anything like that to me because i get. I don't see the other people behind them and i am. I'm open to you. Know little flexible on a photo takes a snapshot of one moment in time and a lot can happen during that one moment in time to make these images look like that. Okay cheese or back Going whitney houston on me there so to me no. This does not say anything this is. This is zero again. Wow all right. so far. I've given higher than zero on this one. I just i just don't see these things there. I now all right. Well we've got. I can go look at it out. Our website go sleep. I'd guess calm and quiet and our episode here Okay last piece of evidence today. is a disembodied voice captured on video by a pair of paranormal investigators. Carl has all and sam singleton of the dark arts paranormal group while filming themselves exploring the castle. The camera captured the voice of a little girl whispering. Tell they did not hear this at the moment when they were filming it. It wasn't until they were watching the footage back that they heard it see. That's the thing it's like. That's another time when you're when you're searching for something so when i heard it which took me five or six times playing this video. Rebecca had to tell me the time that it was at. And i kept listening at that time i did not hear it at first and then i heard new tala because you had some new tally. No but i was really hungry. At that time. I could have won for some new tala. That would have been but no i. I mean it could have been anything that caused this. It could have been the The woman's shoes on the floor or something like that or they crunched some some some rock or something like that when they cause the floors are made up of like a rock ish kind of thing instead at that level girl with but over a video camera. It sounded off mike. It didn't sound like it didn't sound like it was any kind of ghost or anything like that. It sounded more like maybe somebody said something off camera. Maybe maybe they just happened to walk in a certain way when you walk on. A wooden floor makes creeks when you walk on stone. Sometimes they crumble a little. This was super scare as a scary spooky to me i absolutely heard it immediately. And it sounded otherworldly. It did not anything like joan. Tala noah sounded like totally different and. It did sound like a whisper. It was clear to me that it was not the people that were. Just you know the two people that were there Yeah it was super creepy. I mean here's the thing. I have nothing against any kind of new tala or anything like that. I i think it's it's really good. I don't like new tele sandwiches. it's like a little too much of it. I would prefer like unlike a little cracker thing. You know the cracker sticker something like that. Those are really good with new tala and nothing against new tala. So but i definitely think that this could be something else especially since they didn't even notice it at the time well to me. That's what i'm saying is that it was other worldly was something that was only captured on the other-worldly like make believe world he was total. Maple world okay. So we'll What's your rating zero to ask zero. This one's an eight for me to back come outer creepy super paranormal. We're gonna have the the link to the youtube video. And by the way there was no welsh or english accent in that new televoice. That's true that's true. But i have no idea i'd i'd it's hard to tell with the whisper and who knows who knows what spirit this is so no okay. So what is your overall rating than for conway castle. Rebecca semi while waiting for conway castle is gonna be a six also not as haunted as what people have said Yeah i will say i mean. It's an looks like an awesome place to visit their. You know again. There's a lot of reports of things. But i just i couldn't find a ton of specific stories other than this photo and this voice in those were convincing enough for me to go towards the haunted side Yeah but i almost feel like it. You know it's it's just a creepy castle so some of that might just be people feeling creepy while they're there. Okay i'll for you. So i'm gonna go zero on it you know. That's an average of my clear average ratings here. I'm sorry. I just don't think that there's enough evidence there to prove anything even to get me to a one or a two. I'm now so that brings us to the closing arguments. This is our last chance to convince you to vote our way. We are each given one minute of uninterrupted time. Because rebecca likes to cheat so we are going to do it on our own cell phones. Were going time each other to keep each other honest because rebecca lies. I wanna so rebecca. Are you ready. I am ready. Okay.

Forty two she was an only child and was educated at home by her parents and she left home. She moved to worthing in west sussex there. She spent ten years teaching at a girls secondary school during that time charlotte began to develop her own original teaching methods at the time and even today many schools used classical education system. This system offers student. Three main categories of study grammar dialectic and rhetoric it places emphasis on writing and systemic grades and often leaves the fine arts outside of the main curriculum. Charlotte disagreed with the system. She believed didn't offer the full scope of education to children and was especially interested in making the liberal arts more accessible as a result she started to pen her own books. She began with the popular series on geography eighteen eighty seven. She co founded the parents educational union or p helped provide resources for parents.

The king of scotland and rightful king of england took refuge in a tall oak tree where he remained until the coast was clear a few days earlier on september third oliver cromwell and his parliamentarian forces had won the final battle of the english civil war when it was clear the royalists had lost the twenty one year old charles the second escaped the battlefield on horseback with some of his most trusted men. They rode forty miles through the countryside. Until it last reaching the ruins of the white lady's nunnery on the northern border of shropshire. When they arrived charles troop said about disguising him. They dressed him in old. Clothes cut his hair and smeared his face with soot. It was a necessary measure because cromwell had already dispatched soldiers to hunt down. the road. King wanted posters quickly appeared far and wide and a one thousand pound reward was issued for his capture with the kings safe for the time. Being most of his friends departed to avoid drawing attention to the group. Only richard peril remained with charles to help lead him through the woods on september fifth. The pair fled towards the river. Saverne where they hoped to cross into wales and from their sale to the relative safety of france unfortunately they found that the severn was heavily. Guarded by cromwell's patrols left with no way forward. Charles and richard were forced to turn back the way they came this time. They headed for bosca bell house a remote hunting lodge about a mile away from the nunnery where they'd hidden the night before when they arrived at around three. Am on the morning of september six. They were informed by richards. Brothers that the white lady's nunnery had already been raided by cromwell's soldiers. Another royalist fugitive named major william carlos was also hiding out at bosko bell. He suggested that it would be safer. If charles didn't stay in the house instead.

Equal Too: How We Change the Law for Disabled People
"Today over one point two billion people around the world are living with a disability. We make up fifteen percent of the global population and yet despite many countries establishing laws to protect our rights. No disabled person is immune to discrimination. Last year across thirty six police forces in england and wales more than seven thousand three hundred disability hate crimes were reported but only one point six percent resulted in perpetrators being charged disability. Discrimination often called abe limb comes in many forms from not providing a wheelchair ramp or an interpreter. At a press briefing point six million spent on the new pressroom still no interpreter to more extreme breaches in human rights such as the practice of shackling or forced sterilization all around the world disabled people depend on laws to safeguard our rights in the uk. We have the equality act in the us as the ada in columbia. There's law sixteen eighteen and in australia. There's the disability discrimination act in some countries. These acts took disabled activists years of blood. Sweating tears to bring in. I highly recommend watching the oscar-nominated documentary creek camp to get an idea of how hard fought the. Ada was in the us but even when there are laws in place when researching for this podcast we came to find that more often than not it falls upon disabled people themselves to enforce those laws or in some cases outright change them
Lady Diana: Fairy Tale or Horror Story?
"Diana princess of wales oftentimes called the people's princess born into a wealthy aristocratic family with strong royal ties. Dina grew up assuming her future would be pretty damn bright of course. She assumed that she was raised. Essentially to be married someone with royal blood to be married to a high born man of means. But you couldn't have known or assumed dreamt. Maybe that you would actually marry the prince of england heir to the british throne and become the british commonwealth princess. That's exactly what happened. She i caught. Prince charles is is a teenager when he was of all things. Dating her older sister would appear to be a sweet and dreamlike. Royal romance would begin later when that would capture the world's attention then it seemed to have it all to be living a fairy tale. A little prince the off romanticized prince charming had picked her her foot at fit the fabled glass slipper and she looked like a fairytale princess. She was young elegant fashionable beautiful. And now she wasn't actual princess but fairy tales. Don't often actually really come true do they. Yes dan i was becoming a princess but she was not becoming the happy bride of a devoted in love struck prince charming their fairytale romance was fake from the beginning a show put on for the cameras to uphold the all important picture perfect and profitable image of the british royal family beneath the facade of their romance behind the beautiful clothes and jewels. Extravagant wealth was a woman who is sick and suffering. Diana wet a man whose heart and bed already belonged someone else someone. The king and queen had deemed unsuitable wife for the prince. Diana's happy heavily publicized honeymoon was spent largely in tears. She married a man who she didn't really love because you didn't really know him a man who wished he was married to someone else and now diana worked hard to hide her true feelings from the media frenzy that surrounded her. She'd sacrificed any hope for a private life. Once she'd said yes to prince charles's marriage proposal. The british media and paparazzi would now watch her every move the rest of her life often waiting for her to make a mistake looking for suspected chinks in the royal family's armor diana herself said towards the end of her life after her marriage had ended. I seem to be on the front of a newspaper every single day which is an isolating experience and the higher. The media puts you places you. The bigger the drop
Visa Buys a Punk as Bitcoin Returns to $50K
"As i discussed on saturdays weekly recap. Bitcoin had just made a nice little punch-up heading into the weekend last night on sunday. Bitcoin lifted its head above fifty thousand where it remained until about an hour ago at the time of this recording. Some have called this last month. The short squeeze rally referring to the fact that it was started as bitcoin held above thirty thousand dollars in the face of numerous short positions that forced those shortsellers to buy more at higher prices to keep their positions open to being a boom short-squeeze. Whatever the cause over the last thirty days. Bitcoin is up around forty six percent and bitcoins peak in the last twenty four hours around fifty thousand two hundred three month high. Bitcoin is now recorded gains for five consecutive weeks. Which is its longest winning streak in september of last year. Matthew did the co founder and coo at stack funds said that this rally unlike some of our previous frenetic moves up hasn't been driven by derivatives bets but instead by spot buying quote looking at funding in the options market. This rally still appears to be spot driven. Our expectation is that this break of psychological resistance will likely result in a rotation back to bitcoin in the coming weeks with the next target of sixty thousand dollars. This idea of a lot of spot buying driving things seems to be affirmed by data from into the block which shows that institutions in. Wales appear to have been accumulating alongside price growth. They tweeted institutions in wales. Getting increasingly bullish on bitcoin as prices have climbed over the past few weeks the volume addresses with at least one thousand. Bitcoin are showing a positive correlation with bitcoins. Price of point seven five in q. Three

Lessons From Australia: What Happens When You Give up Gun Rights
"I talk about what's going on in our stralia. Another english speaking country with the magna carta with the same heritage of individual rights the same cultures. We had founded not that long after we founded well at according to summit news. There's a proposal that is strongly favored. Which would do find stuff. Sorry beatles fines of up to eleven thousand dollars for posting information online. When you criticize the lockdown if you organized a protest against the lockdown in new south wales twenty thousand dollar fine wait a minute. Wait a minute. We're not talking about china. We're talking about australia. When i visited australia of maybe five or six seven years ago. I can't remember. But i just thought this is as close to america as a country that i've seen it just seemed to be kind of wonderful and free and sorta healthy in that way. I'm a little bit shocked john. Australia has taken this direction. This is really because all right. But i wanna finish if you attend the protests. Five thousand dollar fine if you share information on social media about these illegal protests eleven thousand dollar fines now. Why has australia taken this. I think it took this turn back in nineteen ninety six when after mass shooting incident. Australians guns were all taken away is why we have one in nine hundred ninety six. There was a mass shooting that resulted in thirty deaths. It was horrendous but in a hysterical panic the australians let themselves be completely disarmed. it's virtually impossible. You live out me. Outback and hunt kangaroos to have a weapon for self defense in australia. Any country with the citizens give up their guns eventually. This kind of thing is going to happen. Governments expand until they hit resistance. The power of the state keeps growing until something pushes back against it. That's why the american founders. If you read the debates over the ratification of the bill of rights the only question about the second amendment was our gun rights so obvious that it's insulting to even write them down. Thank god they wrote them down but one founder after another with no dissenters said an armed. Citizenry is the last backstop against

And he says that there were 3.5 1000 very selfish. Boof heads on the streets of Sydney today, buff head is an Australian colloquialism. Meaning idiots, and I'm sure that there will be many millions of Australians in lockdown who will agree with those sentiments? Clearly, there is frustration in the community. There is anger. There is uncertainty. There is on fear as well concerned about the slow rates of vaccinations in this country, but most Australians are pretty compliance. Trying to do the right things. So the authorities very concerns about these events in Sydney today and in Melbourne and Brisbane Health officials saying that these large protests in those three Australian cities will put lives at risk.

"I've seen reports that save this problem. Is she now spreading beyond rural areas in new south wales and read one pretty hysterical newspaper report over an army marching on. Sydney is any of this true. I mean it stephanie. A good story. Actually one of the foremost mass experts in australia's to me. When i picked up the phone and i said hey i just have a few more questions. And he said you're not gonna ask me about the mice invading sydney are you. It's not happening okay. So it looks unlikely that sydney will experience the same level of mice infestation. That there is a knee south wales. This problem is not going away that though when and how might this mouse plague and everything plays a part. So cold weather plays a part a lack of food being around plays a pot. You know poisons plan pop but the thing that truly ends a mice plague is profoundly horrifying essentially these populations collapsed when they become so many mice only one area that disease spreads rampantly throughout that population. And then when that's coupled with food shortages the mice will stop hunting for grain and stott eating the sick ones and then when they run out of sick and dying mayes they'll go back to their burrows and then they'll eat all of their own babies so that's what we're hoping for at the moment which is kind of a fitting end what's overall being a pretty horrific situation so disgusting but i suppose this act of cannibalism could end the pie without the need for poison. It would just be a matter of time. This definitely a matter of time and chance but also what the government and experts and different groups are saying. Is that pharma's need to spend the next couple of months. Being hyper vigilant walking around their fields the moment they start seeing mass barrows popping up in big numbers the moment they start seeing damage to their crops like that's when they need to start laying down the bike because essentially the only hope we have is that you know. There's a collapse of population and through our own efforts where able to stop that population climbing again. Is this likely to happen again. If he's time he said these bows plagues can pop up every decade or so. Are we expecting that. This will just come around in another few years. Yes essentially sometimes. When i asked some of the experts about this essentially they're saying my son never going away which is also unfortunate because they absolutely not native to the australian landscape at all like it was very much a european settlers that brought them here but now that they hear that kind of here forever. It's a problem that you can control. But you can't phoenix mice ed maturity. Think the next time you see a mouse maybe if you saw it in your home you'd may feel a bit differently about it..

And all he does is kill the people that have hurt him, but these other people just keep getting attached to him and can see why our pulse him back and forth between the two the next morning, he sees loan.

It's it's an amazing film and I'm sorry we're alone for the place tonight but it's kind of hard not to be with this film. No, listen, I'm all over the place too. Like I said, it's very important to the to that the both of us and it's so great and it's so dense and it's so so good. That's what's that, that's part of the problem. So I wanted to ask you about something towards the end of the film. If you think we're at that point the couple of little themes that want to talk about about Josey Wales is Faith and always called a bloodthirsty killer and and at the beginning he's bitter and traumatized Anchorman. He can't resist doing the right thing and helping people in need which goes to like he's sort of like an angel and a devil but he is a positive influence and a positive energy because the thing I find I found really interesting watching at this time that loan Wadi, he reconnects with his Indian spirituality and remembers. They're forgotten ways of his Youth and his people because of Josey Wales after he meets him and they had that conversation and Josey. Wales who doesn't trust anyone loan Lottery pulls a gun on him. He talks in for a little bit and he's so comfortable..

"In the later scene. We see Bloody Bill right up to him. It's still an ex in the ground. So I just had it in my head watching it for this need cast. I was researching like you know this really just really just seems important to me. I mean it could very well have just been like I said that, you know, Clint Eastwood's like oh, it's just an emotional Outlet. It does it, but it seemed important to me. So I looked it up and a tilted cross is known as a Saint Andrew's cross which is a Herald symbol. So the X on the Confederate flag the X on the British union job. In countless of the flags are a Saint Andrew's cross. I was like, okay so there's the Confederate flag connection but that's like, I feel like there's something more and so as I read this whole thing cuz you know they use a subtext in the film like Josey Wales, he's always associated with verbiage or imagery of Hell, or being more than a man, but he's not Supernatural. But in any case, I read that some consideration, I'm across to be a symbol that represents the human race or Humanity as being positioned, right in the middle between Heaven and Hell. And when when I read that something went off in my head I'm like heaven and not, hell, and referencing it is a theme throughout this entire film, their constant references to hell, or being in Hell or Josie represented, as being in Hell or from Hell in the dialogue. The Centers is how long this song to Kingdom? Come with Biblical imagery? He'll have to run for now and he'll is where his headed Fletcher says. He'll be waiting for us there Centre, so he's saying he's in hell, right? And then Jake Tells Josie he's feeling better after they shoot the first set of Bounty Hunters. Glen and like, oh, by the way, I want to give a shout out to lend lesser who plays a VIN this film, but he's Uncle Louie and Seinfeld.

"I've imagined what I've wanted to say to him, and what it basically comes down to is I think the Outlaw Josey, Wales and Unforgiven people will be watching these two films and a thousand years from now. Know agreed. Oh, I agree. They're very, they're very connected and I think it's in the documentary wear cleats. It says that he feels, he feels like it's one of the best things he's ever done. And he said that if it had been released at the time that Unforgiven had been released, he thought that it would receive just the same amount of attention and accolades. I don't doubt that for a second. I mean I also found it really interesting that you have Jamie woolvett as the Schofield kid and Unforgiven and he looks like Sam bottoms. Oh yeah, Wells, Josey Wales. I mean, he looks like the same, right? I mean, they even have similar mannerisms. It's what I saw. And forgiving for the first time, it actually freaked me out because I was like that guy's gotta be old. Now that's, you know, I hadn't thought about that but you're, you're absolutely right. Yeah. I I thought it was Sam bottoms is to say, I thought it was the same actor dead. And I couldn't understand why he didn't age like the rest of us. Well, unfortunately, I don't think you got the age that much at all. I think. Sam bottoms left us quite early. I think you're right. Yeah, he did. And he was anything that I saw him and he was really good. Yeah, I and I mean, he just, he has that line. And he just says, we have him again. Jit Josie. And Josie know. It's what the again, didn't with Josie or something. Yeah, yeah, you're right. Getting do with Josie. This movie is so chock-full of memorable lines and infinitely re quotable lines.

And I use when the senator is telling Fletcher that oh, you know, the old adage of To the victor goes the spoils and Fletcher sisters and the wrong things that are don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining. Well, I want to talk about this scene. Kind of two thirds into the movie, a little later, the saloon scene but that has the great line of Diane's. Not much of a Livin boy. Yeah, go to get to pull them pistols or whistle Dixie. I can't say, Dixie for some reason. No, actually filled with amazing unbelievable quotes. The other thing I noticed, going back to Unforgiven. They have a couple of scenes that are almost identical. You have the target practice seen after Josey Wales, a family is killed and he's trying to fire the gun and and hit. Oh, that's right. And it's almost looks shot-for-shot. Very similar to Unforgiven except for Unforgiven. It's kind of played for Laughs. Where in Outlaw Josey Wales. It's it's dead serious. I mean he he just he's Mississippi. And he needs to be accurate. That's, that's a great Point. That's a great idea, you know, and think of that you're right, I feel like in Unforgiven it is played for Laughs. In Jersey Wales..

Forrest Carter, who he claimed was a Cherokee, right? All of this came out after the movie was made from what I understand wage. Yeah. And they were like Warner Brothers and Clint Eastwood and the producers and everyone was like holy shit. We got a distance ourselves from this guy majorly just however that wage. Yeah. Not only was he a member of the KKK? I think I read somewhere that he was in a especially radical member of the segment. I don't know how more radical you can be hooked up to the word I was looking for but also was the speechwriter for George Wallace. Yep. And he's the one that wrote the famous line of his speech segregation now segregation tomorrow, segregation forever. Yeah, not a good guy anti-semite as well. So what's very insane is that this person wrote them all Source novel, which inspired this really beautiful magnificent film. The messages in the film are antithetical to everything that that man, apparently stood for in real life. It's just it's dead. Absolutely bizarre. And I read a portion chapter eleven of the Clint Eastwood a biography by Richard schickel that I bought. And on the day, the my page, twenty-five years ago, great book, by the way, you read it. Yeah, I read it. I couldn't put it down, fantastic, it's so chock-full of information. I reread chapter eleven labor of love which was recounting of the time of him filming and doing Outlaw, Josey, Wales. And I came across who's such a psychopath. The movie was it was a blind submission. He put in this book, the web page fails, Robert daily, the producer picked it up one day cuz he had nothing to read for dinner. Read it to this book has so much soul to it. How you should look at it, they buy it, they pay him. $25,000 up from $10,000 for when production starts and promise more later, and the thing that struck me is, so, he calls Robert daily up and says, hey, I'm going to be you guys neighborhood. I was wondering if you know, if I mean, wage, And rubber daily goes on, to talk about the book that in the neighborhood meant, he was going to Texas, and they're in California.

"You kind of have a, maybe have a sense of what happened to him and he's just this almost Supernatural Force, it's very different kind of film than this, which is realistic. But as you said this starts off and here is, he's he's a farmer and he's, he has a family and, you know, where he comes from and he's, and he's, he's being a, he's just being a dad, just being a normal guy is not the typical. Like, man with no name, spaghetti, western badass, the beginning of this movie. He's just a regular dude. I'd want to get to rail, but when you brought up his son, I thought there was. I agree wage. That's great. But one of the things I realized watching the film this time around that's his real son Kyle. Eastwood. Oh really well. Yeah. That's his real son and no idea. It's six years old. The thing that's weird is he does not give his own son Credit in the film, he's uncredited. Well as much as I love Clint Eastwood and as a filmmaker and as an actor I think he's a great guy off but when I dive into his personal life a little bit, I've always liked. Yeah, I don't know about this. He's fathered a lot of children with a lot of different women. He's Clint Eastwood I mean, it's a good-looking guy, I don't know, it's just funny. I read I read an interview with him where someone asked him about wage that and he said, I don't know what to tell you. I just like kids and I'm like, no, you just don't like wearing rubbers. Like, well, the good part in this is that he can afford them. Yeah, wage. True. So it'd be a little more irresponsible if he was just a regular dude, but he's fucking Clint Eastwood so, you know, fair enough. But I do wrong and let's get back to what you were saying that the beginning of the film. And with his son, I just liked the fact that it didn't take a lot of talk..

I'm finally ready to undertake that teacher training. I was pretty set on it and I wanted to deepen my international experience by studying abroad as well and the program here at Cardiff met offered that international experience and it was. It was nice to have that kind of condensed into one year whereas opposed to back in Canada. It would be over two years or for me. Since I have a three year bachelor's degree it would be actually three years so it's quite a. It's quite a long road teaching. If you chose training Canada I see a New York both kind of unique in unify in your journey. Because you've both had other international teaching Experience Them. What about you? Yes so I also had a bit of a similar journey to Rachel where I tried out teaching by going to Korea. I taught there for five years and I just found that as I progressed in that career and took Jobs that gave me more and more responsibility I just enjoyed it more and more and eventually I was convinced that teaching was the right path for me And then I decided to train and was not yet ready to return to Canada and settled down. You know I'm I'm still young. And Wales offers an opportunity. I'd spent a long time really far away from my family. In Korea was very difficult to skype or to visit and so I chose Wales because of the proximity to Canada..
