He was too shy and ignorant of the world to make any advances to the fair but he was a passionate and mire of female beauty and in his lonely chamber he would often lose himself in reveries on forms and faces which she had seen and his fancy would out images of loveliness far surpassing the reality while his mind was in this excited and supplemented state a dream produced an extraordinary effect upon him. It was of a female face of transcendent beauty. So strong was the impression made that he dreamt of it again and again. It haunted his thoughts by day numbers by night in fine he became passionately enamored of his shadow of a dream. This lasted so long that it became one of those fixed ideas which honda minds of melancholy men and are at times mistaken for madness. Such was godfrey to wolfgang and such his situation. At the time. I mentioned he was returning hong late on a stormy night through some of the old and gloomy streets of them raise the ancient part of paris. The loud claps of thunder rattled among the high houses of the narrow streets. He came to the place to grave. The square where public executions performed lightning quivered about the pinnacles of the ancient hotel deville and shed flickering lemes over the open space in front as wolfgang was crossing the square. He's shrank back with horror finding himself. Close by the guillotine. It was the height of the reign of terror when his dreadful instrument of deaths stood ready. And it's scaffold was continually running with the blood of the virtuous nebraska. It had that very day been. Actively employed in the work of carnage and there it stood in grim array. I missed a silent and sleeping city waiting for fresh victims. Wolfgang's heart second within him and he was turning shuttering from the horrible engine when he beheld a shadowy form cowering as it were at the foot of the steps which led to the scaffold a succession vivid flashes of lightning revealed more distinctly. It was a female figure dressed in black. She was seated. On one of the lower steps of the scaffold leaning forward her face head in her lap and her long to shovel tresses hanging the ground streaming with the rain which fell in torrance. wolfgang paused. There was something awful and the solitary moment of whoa the female. How the appearance of being above the common in order to be full of vicissitude and that many affair head which had once been pillet on down now wandered house lewis. Perhaps this was some poor mourner whom the dreadful acts had rendered desolate and who sat here heartbroken on a strand of existence from which all that was dear to her had been launched into eternity. He approached addressed her and the accents of sympathy. She raised her head and gazed wildly at him. What was his astonishment at beholding. But the bright glare of the lightning that very face which had haunted him in his dreams it was pale and disconsolate ravishingly beautiful trembling with violent and conflicting emotions. Wolfgang again accosted her. He spoke something. I've heard being exposed at such an hour of the night and the fury of such a storm and offer to conduct her to her friends. She pointed to the guillotine with a gesture of dread signification. I have no friend on earth said she but you have a home said wolfgang. Yes and the grave. The heart of the student melted at the words. If a stranger making offer said he without danger of being misunderstood. I would offer my humble dwelling as a shelter myself as a devoted friend. I am friendless myself in paris and a stranger in the land but my life could be of service it is at your disposal and should be sacrificed before harm or indignity. Should come to you. It was an honest earnestness in the young man's manner that had its effect. His foreign accent too was in his favor. It showed him not to be a hackneyed inhabitant. Paris indeed there is an eloquence intrude enthusiasm that is not to be doubted. The homeless stranger combined herself implicitly to the protection on the student he supported her faltering steps across the point naive and by the place where the statue of henry the fourth. I've been overthrown by the populace. The storm had abated and a thunder rumbled at a distance. All paris was quiet.

He had but one chamber an old-fashioned saloon heavily carved and fantastically furnished with the remains of former magnificence for it was one of those hotels and the quarter nobility it was bird with books and papers and all the usual apparatus of a student and has bad stood in a recess at one end when lights were brought. Wolfgang had a better opportunity of contemplating the stranger. He was more than ever intoxicated by her beauty. Her face was pale but a dazzling fairness set off by a profusion of raven. Hair that hong clustering about it. Her eyes were large and brilliant with a singular expression approaching almost to wildness as far as her black dress permitted her shape to be seen. It was a perfect symmetry. Her whole appearance was highly striking. Though she was dressed in the simplest style the only thing approaching an ornament which she wore was a broad black band around her neck clasped by diamonds the perplexity now commenced with a student talk to dispose of the helpless being thrown upon his protection he thought of abandoning his chamber to her and seeking shelter for himself elsewhere. Still he was so fascinated by her charms. There seemed to be spill upon his thoughts and senses that he could not tear himself from her presence. Her manner to was singular an unaccountable. She spoke no more. The guillotine grief had abated the attentions of student. Had i want her confidence and then apparently her heart she was evidently enthusiast like himself and enthusiasts soon understand each other in the infatuation of the moment wolfgang about his passion for her. He told her the story of his mysterious dream and how she had possessed his heart before he had even seen her. She was strangely affected by his recital and acknowledged to have felt an impulse towards him equally. Unaccountable it was time for wild theory and wild actions.

Anytime ahead of the water is always been downhill. So. Let's say if you're playing crashes in the mountains, you follow the creeks down. Yeah. We're laying. When you're working with Kuranda put down some some things that we wanted to discuss. You had three motivations that drive off lots in an parenthetically it says and most small cats. Is sex hunger and fear. I've learned that for my two outdoor cats that are pretty walled and I just sit around and watch them and watch out because CAL will hunt him down and kill cows on anti cat crusade not yeah. FERAL cats well, no I appreciate more than most off man with a dog. Hard man with a cat. Yeah. I like dogs I like dogs more cal I. I like dogs more than cats but I keep a few around for behavioral observations. Any animal. Helps you out tremendously there. There's so many cues that help hunters and. A well, worth your time to have a animal in your life and be an anti cat. Is An entirely correct. AM shocked at the duality of. People's morals when it comes to. Domestic Cat Oh. Yeah that you don't like the guy that wants to pheasants year, but meanwhile your cat. Let the feral in three wandering house cats kill more birds than there are Americans every year. Yes. Yeah I did on this subject. Like what what is the is there overlap between a domestic gap population and in is there concern for? Disease Transmission at TAC toe plasma us I believe is what it is a good question. Yeah. There there's right near the all-south ranch is a small community of one hundred. People Card Port Mansfield and there've been some studies have shown feline leukemia or some disease hundred people two thousand cats go APP what you probably. Yeah. And and what I worry about them is a bob cats probably coming into town or the town which they frequently do getting that disease to Bob Cat, and then into the saw population only about four or five miles away said and and that's one thing we worry about mange as another thing, coyotes will get mange usually a different kind of Maine Castro get not Egypt mange and Coptic manage but we worry about house cats but usually cats won't live too long coyotes kill. great horned owls will kill them in the walled although surprisingly some places you can find some house cats but most of the time they won't live too long in the world. How a? Arrange themselves. Like when you have a little population. You have to imagine they're structured somehow right? I mean they're interacting with each other you talking about all sorts of how Okay I, Oslo Yeah it's it's it's a kind of typical. System Socialization see for the thirty three species of small cast. Most people realize that. But I'm just amazed at thirty three species of small cats and many of them show the same system where we're the strategy of the female is to breed and find a home range. That's big enough. That will support her young raising her young over a year or two we even with variations of drought wet periods. But the males strategy is to try to and she so the female wants to make sure her young survive to breeding age. And the male strategies is is not does not take part of caretaking for the young, but it wants to breed with as many females as it can. So that male is monitoring the territory of one female two females are sometimes three. That means it spends a lot of his time traveling and checking to find out when the female is. Reproductively active after what they had overlapped to home ranges two females it's moving lot get hit by cars well, YEA v the roads in portraying the there will be and the better on the ranches were there aren't roads they're moving a lot and And they try, and so they're they're optimizing their ability to spread the genes that way the female wants She knows that the the the males aren't going to help with raising young any. So it's really interesting strategy and and. And the males I think for many small cats will they'll monitor the females and probably. They'll fight with other males and they definitely defend territories. We've had three instances of one mile killing an elemental. All cats will kill are the cats different species, same species. And the bigger catskill the smaller cat's pretty easy. But I got a photo of this one slot Jaguar in Mexico and he can tell if it's watering hole. And they're they're the Jaguars about to kill that also. So so can't really and you call them into photo at that moment. Another person to Mexico it's it's one photo. And that both responding to the flash of the camera. But that also that I there to photos in that first photo that all the hair standing out on the tele that is lot and it's one hind leg is always looks unusual like it's already broken. I think they already had a bite Three seconds later the next camera both looking back intensely each other and I benefit had another three seconds that Oslo would be that. Yeah. So so so that's a problem but they they display a lot and they try not to fight they sent Martha home ranges and territories. They don't WanNa fight because if you break a canine or you lose one I you chance surviving much longer is not good. If you had to. Crystal. Ball. Right.

"wander house" Discussed on Museum Archipelago
"Welcome to museum archipelago. I'm Ian Elsner. Museum archipelago guides you through the rocky landscape of museums each episode. He's never longer than fifteen minutes. So let's get started. There's a way to look at history that focuses on the events themselves. And then there's a way to look a history that focuses on the fallout in the Fourth Century. Bc. E So Lucas. Who's one of Alexander the great successors and Chandra Gupta who is the first Moyen Emperor in northern India met for the first time by the banks of the River Indus and there they had some kind of military encounter? What kind of military encounter? Well we don't really know what we do know is that following the encounter. Greek ambassador megacity was sent to the Indian Interior for the first time and he wrote an ethnographic cool the indicate and it described India for Greek Odeon based on personal observation. But also that you need this. Lots of strange storytelling as well. And this particular tax reform the foundation of Western knowledge of India for generations. And you can just imagine that. Soldiers and British soldiers in the nineteenth century took translations of this particular taxed with them to north west of India when they were exploring. So it's a very long life and it's particularly that that continues to resonate. This is Dr Shushma John. Sorry Tabor Foundation Curator of South Asia at the British Museum. I'm talk to central Michigan. Sorry on the Table Foundation Creator South Asia at the British Museum. And when I'm not at work I welcome my podcast which is very much a passion project and this is called the Wander House will get to the wonder house in a minute because it's an excellent podcast but I a doctorate at University College London. Jane sorry studied this ancient encounter of which only Greek descriptions survive. That moment of meeting in connection has been completely transformed it was transformed cleaner period by British and Indian scholars have precious scholars saying. Oh you know so. Give Woman's warned. He defeated this Indian general whereas the Indian scholars right the the complete opposite that take gender. Gupta defeated this incoming European and he became a great leader and ruler. So actually I think because of this uncertainty. I think it tells us a lot about the time we live in right now. And how may have been transformed in the past so that Doesn't it doesn't bother me in the sense that we will never have this Tonic truth because you know we're never going to get that what we can study is the fallout. How people interpret these historic events and how that reflects on the moment. They're living in now and of course what better way to see in the form of a building how people interpret historic events than a museum itself. This is why the whole idea of decolonizing museums and collections is so important. Because I think up. Till now we've all been complicit in telling partial stories under the guise of trying to be neutral and as we know that neutrality is quite problematic and it tells very very partial truth or partial version of a story. Museums are great way to see what historic events meant to the museum. Builders and I can think of no clearer example than the British Museum. We have reading credible exhibitions on. Say you know when you're thinking of ancient South Asia? They're often on Buddhism or Hinduism organism. So they have a very close religious fakers but will they don't tend to address very rarely that I've ever seen anyway is today's collections. Arrive here. What was the clinical interest in that material? How has it been interrupted? How's it been presented at also? Why why Nice particular ways? How how has that changed over the last century or so it? It's too easy to present a cycle neutral view the ancient Pau of ancient religions. But I I don't think that's particularly ethical. I think if you're going to be doing that you need to be telling that full story in episode thirty nine of this show. We examined Hand Sloan and the origins of the British Museum. Funded in large part by his marriage into the enslaving plan Takeuchi of Jamaica and aided by Britain's rising colonial power global reach. Sloan assembled an encyclopedic collection of specimens and objects from all around the world that became the basis for the world's first public museum the British Museum. A place where anyone could freely enter to see the glory of the British Empire the empire and fuses pretty much every aspect of life life in the UK. Whether we're all aware of it will not in a weather. It's the names of the streets. We walked down the the museums that were founded the collections. They hold the structures. We still all inhabit when you look around at the museum's mice museums I'd say UK. They hold the contents of empire objects collected around the world by client officials by soldiers by Salas people. Working Abroad Uber. Count disentangle the two. When you are telling a story you need to be honest. And tell the whole story or at least as much of it as you can possibly share. Because otherwise you're telling a very very partial one. That often overlooks the violence of an object's collection and the situation and circumstances it was created taken purchased and brought him to the UK to be held in a museum today. Sorry is the first curator of Indian descent of the South Asia collection at the British Museum. In the past Tracy Tell Dighton. Do you think about it very much. I think he's signing when I look at my couture practice and how I approach my role. The collections who. I want to work with and how I realized that actually there is a difference between what I do. And what's other people in a whole range of institutions? Bring Two zero and at first. I was really uncomfortable about that. I thought my goodness unit is it. Just because of who I am and what I am. What about you know? My academic side Olifants might use skills knowledge but actually. I think it's my ability to do my job. Is it somehow rich? I bring a slight different perspectives. We'll say in how I do it. The South Asia collection at the British Museum is so enormous that it can capture the sweep of history of South Asia from the Paleolithic period. To the present day. The gallery opened in two thousand seventeen before that it was last refurbished in nineteen ninety. Two it just happens to be the largest gathering the museum so hey no pressure looking say. Try Not to fail on your first go. It was it was really tricky. We started by thinking about who actually comes to the museum and seventy percent of our audience comes from outside the U. K. And if those people a huge proportion than not very well versed in the history cultures religions of South Asia. So how'd you present your collections in a way that shares this really incredible to the world with people who'd About it and so. We decided to have a chronic thematic kind of approach. We started with the Paleolithic. She's about one and a half million years ago and ended at the present day and the encyclopedic collections at the museum permits us to be able to do something like that. As part of that isolated wet on the ancient to medieval sections. Which is the collections? I cover along with the bulk of the anthropological collections. And also the textiles it. It's got a mammoth collection. The Dakota but as Powell fat I was very keen to introduce moments were slightly unexpected stories and people what presented so for example in the main oil. You walk down. One of the first sculptures you encounter is the modern line capital which takes about the first century day and it was actually excavated and request to the museum by South Asian Collector Pokharel Energy on. I put a portrait of him on that label as well as little bit attacks expanding it because I wanted people to be confronted by South Asians in South Asia Gallery. It's not enough to display their culture of their collections in their history. I think it has to be a shared enterprise and an in another section for example in the Janus in western India the Medieval section I included fate graphs of the Jane Temple from less. Which is where I'm from in the UK who wanted to show you know the sculptures on display. They are just as much positive. British culture as it was back then in the medieval period. It's not just a alien religion in Asian culture. It's our shed culture now. I think it's really important to connect the dots so you do. Share this broad sweep of history and culture but then you want to intersperse it with these other reading important moments linking in a WHO and what you might see around you as you get your everyday life in the UK linking it with with the pastas. Well I asked John. Sorry if she's noticed changes in who visits the gallery and how much time they spend there since the update very interesting. Hughes how they engaged with different displays how it can sort of tweak them to make more engaging annoy definitely notice that there are more South Asians in the gallery space the South Asia section. Anyway this is a really tricky one because I hope that a museum is for everybody. The reality is that as you say. A lot of people don't feel that the museum is for them and it's it's terrible because obviously the museum is for everybody but once again when you have very neutral displays and people aren't addressed people aren't consulted people you want working with members of the community. I think understand why they might feel somehow excluded from these spaces and we've all had moments have been chatting to people may assume that museum is not for them it somehow seen as a very different other ring space. A when you see the workforce inside the museum also predominantly white and. There are very few members of your black and minority ethnic stuff in the museum's once again. What sort of message are you trying to share with everybody else? You're saying hey come come to a museum but you can't work How how'd you change that? And I think it's not just one not tweets. I think it's a fundamental reimagining of what exactly a museum is exactly. This museum is full. I'm not sure that we have these answers. But what I think is really really important. Is that we start having these conversations. Are We start experimenting? And this is one of the reasons why John. Sorry started the wonder House podcast. The podcast which is completely independent of the British Museum is away again. Sorry to share the most innovative contemporary approaches to decolonization and so I got in touch with some people whose work I really respect and I asked them if they were willing to talk about their work what they learn what they what they thought didn't work quite so well and share their stories and experiments with decolonizing where they love about. The wonder house is being able to listen in on these conversations. That might not be happening in museums themselves but are happening at coffee houses and pubs nearby and the show explores the scale to you here. John Sorry who works at one of the largest institutions in the world in conversations with people who might be their museums only curators. I worry that the decolonizing museums incredible energy that it has right now. It's quite easy for that. To evaporate every single a movement has its moment and unless we embed this kind of knowledge and approaches it's it's going to evaporate and that that's one of the things that worries me. Most I not just the collections but also you know the the simple fact that many of us who work in museums you often one of the one or two Black Amano. She ethic people in an entire institution. That's not easy. Sorry studies the ancient world. But now she is at the forefront of modern museum interpretation printing not just the event but also how the event ripped through history remember the story about Salukis and Chandra Gupta from the beginning of the episode. The Indian interpretation of that moment has worn out. And actually if you read historical novels modern comics if you watch Indian films and in TV series. That's exactly the vision of John. Goto that we have now and you know what it's evolving over time you know days of being shaped and reshaped day by day at the moment and I think that's.
"wander house" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"At any size or forty pounds underweight you're on healthy at any size so it's very silly to L. healthy at any size or you know we should pretend that if you are really overweight that it's it's some sort of read on your identity to say that you really out of his way for your own house Hey it's it's utter utter foolishness I can tell you're healthy will mean their actual objective measures that we can check blood pressure we can determine what your stamina level is by by doing stress tests we can we can determine your oxygen flow but the actual objective task plus you can look at risk factors in risk factors for things like heart disease for things like cancer they actually are high and links to caloric intake for example so are some indicators on all of this to pretend complete ignorance about is just another way which left tens of wind itself the signs because they're so focused on the idea that everybody should feel good about themselves even if they're not feeling good chance since it happened I love the show my question is if you are the current president and you thought is from did the many members of your administration were against you and we can top level information to the press yeah but your presidency what would you do is the type of medical president says talking to a friend yesterday about that exactly this question because it's very obvious to people in terms of ministration are leaking it is obvious that their career officials at the state department and defense department in the Intel community who don't like him and are willing to go to the press and we can for making that ought not be public and the answer is I would do exactly the Bronco BAMMA did outgoing mole hunter and fired people my first name the president the United States we first enters office it is very common for the president to fire virtually every district attorney across the United States right to fire hundreds returns that across the country who he feels are not going to mesh well with what he wants his Attorney General and DOJ to do that's very common it seems to me the mass firings at places like the state department if the state department isn't that likely directed against you is not necessarily a bad thing you just have to have people ready to replace those people and the problem here is it institutional knowledge inside the state department is largely predicated on service at the state department and or on getting some sort of international relations degree from Georgetown or something and people tend to go into that field tend to be on the left now trump is actually not higher up in the state bar right there understaffed over the statements he's tried to do some of the stuff but again I said that I hear women from says that he doesn't trust a lot of people in his own government and that's why he's created these back channels in the sort of personal relationships with people I don't actually see huge problem with that in principle I just think he picks the wrong people I don't think isn't really ani over Ukraine the problem isn't setting up people you trust in Ukraine the promise finding people that are trustworthy and setting them up in Ukraine and presumably having to work for the federal government like he brought it bill Taylor was somebody brought in by the trump administration now from this very angry bill Taylor and suggest that he is some sort of of human scum or something which is just ridiculous is ridiculous bill Taylor is a is a diplomat with a long history what did the bush administration not humans got okay trump asking to serve right from the ministration estimates are just just from doesn't personally know that person doesn't mean that person is out to get from with that said if I were trouble everywhere yeah I mean the first move that I would make is asking whomever I point is the head of a department and I only point had department I trusted you go through and find people who they think are not aligned with the ideology of the administration and then fire them if we go to do so he says I mean hearing enough coverage of the democratic presidential candidates but have a little her little to no coverage new Republican candidates that could give the president competition are there any Republicans who may be competitive with Mr trump nope nope nope nope the answer is no the answer is no because incoming presidents rarely have serious competition and with regard to president trump who was the most unexpected president in probably American history and to be elected the idea that the Republican Party after watching him if you know what a Clinton is then going to abandon him for like William well is just instead but it's not going to happen it's not a thing that is crossing Republicans minds most Republicans still see trump as a blunt force instrument of impact can be used against Democrats and left to Jenna and there is some truth to that they don't see that the other Republicans and not only that what would exactly the grounds for the primary challenge other than just character issues with the Republic which the Republican base has basically dealt with eggs and absorbed this point as I always say about president from everything baked into the cake Hey there some sugar and there's some frosting in there some custard and is also isn't on all that is baked into the cake and Republican voters know that and so somebody coming along saying well you know I think was just toss out this entire take Republicans like well it's the cake we've got so now we're not going to do that the only serious primary challenge that has been run in my lifetime was probably happy cannon in nineteen ninety two and even that was a particularly serious one one primary New Hampshire so I know I don't see anyone is serious challenger to drop Nathan says I was talking my wife that's taking a trip to Israel one day specifically Jerusalem Catholic I would love to see the religious sites one day and walk the same streets Jeez what my wife objected saying Israel is just too dangerous the place to go and as Christians we are in danger of being killed just going there I told her the area is a very peaceful but I doubt military gunfighter religious genocides routinely breaks down the capital city having just recently been to the holy land can get a feel of what it's like over there at the moment and if it's relatively safe for Americans to travel and say to the answer is it's extremely safe for people to travel in Israel Israel is extraordinarily safe is particularly true inside with the call Green Line Israel should be the area that Israel has ruled since nineteen forty eight and it's also true Jerusalem Jerusalem has been pacified there's a heavy military presence in Jerusalem meaning that there are lots of police officers and soldiers walking the streets the Arabs in East Jerusalem are not looking for a fight they they're not interested in destroying the tourism economy they're actually relied upon in East Jerusalem it's a lot safer as there in two thousand and one is the middle of the second intifada and their actual suicide bombings at restaurants at that time nothing like that has happened since there was a spate of stabbing attacks that happened a couple of years ago is are these long will stab attack something like seventy of them over the course of a couple of years but Israel is a country of some nine million people so that's that's the there were last year the statistic I heard is that they're a grand total of something like a hundred and ten murders in the entire country entire country a hundred and ten murders and something like sixty eight of those were it took place between Arab citizens of the state of Israel in largely Arab populated cities that is that is not major is one is extremely safe Jerusalem is a very very safe place now does that mean that you want to go there and be provocative in different areas of the city probably not when I walk alone eat in parts of East Jerusalem as you it would be smart of me to do that but those donations are pretty clearly demarcated you know where you are you're not gonna like accidentally walk into an unsafe area and as I say their soldiers everywhere if you're going to visit the western wall if you're going to visit the if you're going to visit the church of the holy sepulcher if you're going to visit some of the holy sites and those are the most well guarded places in Israel I thought I feel extremely safe you're the only place that you're not gonna feel to and I can ask local calls Christian incomes nodding along the cold was been walking around Jerusalem no fuss no muss it it's really not been a problem of any sort pretty safe place today the places that are unsafe our label the giant red signs but if you if you were to go into Judea and Samaria the so called west bank the reason I called change very that's the historical name of the territory west bank assumes that this was the west bank of the Jordan River and that Jordan owned the territory which is is something that I dispute in any case red you dance if you go into the Jewish areas you change very like a prop those places are safe to go to bush concedes that place is pretty safe if you go into an era where a wandering due to Bethlehem then you got a problem on your hands maybe right as a Christian less of a problem than I would you their giant red signs there posted by the Israeli government saying these are dangerous dangerous to your life for you to go here this is something you never hear about media and me are never to talk about the fact if you're dealing accidentally drive into Palestinian area you likely will be pulled out of her car murder like that is not a possibility that is a high likelihood that that will happen that you will be accosted and harmed in some way which is why they have the giant red sign there if your Palestinian and you accidentally drive instead of Israel you'll sit down have a Cup of coffee people treat you nicely then you'll go back to your hometown okay gave thousands wander into Jewish areas are being murdered that's not a thing Jews wandered housing areas rolled out of Palestinian authority with so called area a right that that stuff we won't let but that's not where that's how we talk about this kind of his injuries which was on the very same tell it is very safe the big challenge is very safe hi fi is very say all these areas are extremely Israel isn't like I'd be more comfortable walking around a lot of berries in Chicago then I would be walking around Israel I'm Laura comes walking around a lot of the areas in my hometown Los Angeles and I'm walking around in Jerusalem without a doubt without a doubt okay
