How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

When the downfall of a corporation would attract the same level of coverage as a natural disaster she and hers and ron's main lobby. She expected a grim scene but nothing could have prepared her for this shell shocked former. Employees had towards the doors in a mass exodus their personal effects piled into cardboard boxes.

Exactly what that means for her as the doors open to her floor. He tells her not to worry her job safe for another month at least walk ins asks. Why man raises his eyebrows.

He says she'll probably be asked to appear in court as lawsuits against enron begin to land in the coming weeks after all. You're the one who tried to warn. Lay the company was in danger right.

Ever in the interim so that's been good with the lockdowns and everything poker has been popping off so i had had my biggest or ever last may and then since then i have like four. Scores were biggest bigger than my biggest prior to that. So it's been a very nice little late career renaissance for me linked career. What's this late career business. Also we'll say mid career. I guess it's funny. How like. I never really imagined myself doing something for like seventeen years and when i think that like in three years i'll be have been a professional poker player for twenty years. It kind of blows my mind. Yeah it's so much so much time. So much time passes so quickly against changed much in those years to the level play and just the entire ecosystem is completely changed like multiple phones. Yeah well poker. Nothing after black. Friday everything kind of went just haywire. And it's just been. It's been a mess ever ever since. Then what do you think is led to these record-setting scores over the past year. I think the colonel watkins huge part of The back of their so many more people signed playing online. I think i think that's like led to a large infusion of new blood into the game. Obviously that's kind of winding down now. But the the after affects still real. You know once you get people. Use the idea like depositing money in playing online over there. They're likely to stick around for at least some degree leading the player polls have been a lot larger do that. I think that's the primary reason. But then also there's sort of a momentum thing where it's just when you're winning and the money's rolling in you can it's a lot easier to sort of detach yourself from like the immediacy of it all and just kind of make decisions. Zoe were studying. And just as the to make awfully as possible. And you know like no matter how much you tell yourself that you're capable of detaching from like the underlying money there's always it's like nagging voice in the back of your head like oh i can bluff year. But that's like if i'm wrong at a cost me x. Amount of money. It's easier to that when you're doing really well. It's an interesting psychological effect that you know if you're just ripping off big win after big win after big win you're much more comfortable in your mind quote unquote taking chances whereas if you're just getting crushed doing those same things you're a lot more hesitant to pull the trigger. You can know mentally too. Something is the right move. And then it's like you know it's gonna cost you more money to do it but it's still. It's still hard to pull the trigger unless you have a whole lot behind to worry about the results in the short term like what's the expression not only have to know what the right move is you have to make it
How to Tap Into Your Gut Intuition
"Light watkins. Welcome back to the podcast. It's a pleasure to have here. Thank you the last time. I was on this podcast. It was called the broken brain. Now it's called the trooper away so it's avid happy to be here for the second phase evolving time. Yeah yeah exactly where you know. The thing about that is that. I always felt broken. Brain was great. You know it came from this documentary that we did that. A lot of the people listening watched but it never really encompassed sort of what the vibe was and then somebody said what what would you want to name. If you can name it anything. And i said i don't know i don't have a good name but i know that will be doing podcasts for a long time so i'm just going to name it after myself and so here we are. We are the love. it I love a good story and your new book is filled with a ton of then. And there's one that. I love to actually start off with like just jump right in because it's a nice way to set the stage and it'll open up our conversation to some of these themes of self criticism self compassion other things that we want to get into and it's the story of herbie. Hancock and miles davis I know you don't have your book in front of you. But just from your recollection jumper that story and then let's extrapolate on some of the themes in there was a well known story that i heard herbie hancock. Tell a few times and just to give a little background on. Why and where these stories come from. So i've been writing daily dose of inspiration email for almost five years to my little list subscribers and stuff and so these stories that have been coming up with over those years. Were meant to invoke inspiration or just give someone a poke or nudge to kind of look in a certain direction to find the inspiration within themselves. So this story came from from that sort of Purpose
Hamish Martin - The Secret Garden Edinburgh
"Hamish maltin co founder of the secret herb garden and the secret garden distillery. Thank you so much for joining me on the podcast today. I spent a time researching you yesterday. Hamish i fell in love with with you and your business. I even downloaded a copy of the secret garden book to listen to on audible when i'm driving up to scotland in some of this year so really looking for having a chat but before we get going where in the world you hamish. Well thank you I'm sitting currently in a study. An highest rebuild on sites which is secret have gone and to just outside edinburgh foot of the pentland hills Seven half acre have nasseri gotten. Wow it looks absolutely incredible another. I can say this. All of these podcasts lakes are used to go and do them all face to face and then covert came along. So i've had to learn to record remotely. But yet god i wanted to come and sit in that god. When i was looking at the pictures of online yesterday looks absolutely beautiful. So you are literally. i think. Probably obsesses world by by herbs and plants to the extent that i understand. You've grow six hundred of them yourself. So i thought maybe start with as you could just go through six hundred and let me know the attributes of now we went we do that. But that's that's quite impressive but it's hard to know where to start in many ways because you you've got a sharper distillery herb nursery revenge garden. You run events weddings so much more. But i i guess the backdrop to all of that is your love of plants. So if it's okay. We'll start there. And i'm just wondering when you decided you wanted a life changing you wanted. Your future to revolve around plants will win. Was that what was the trigger. That led you to sort of start. Studying tackles while i used to have back from another life. I used to have a a wine. Business in scotland colin variety which I started with my father. He cited possibly nineteen ago. But i'd already been the as. I love the wine trade because it was involved with the grapes in the growing. But i'd always had my loss of line. The small tiny piece land when i was twenty to stop growing always be addicted with hill running while swimming being was a while camping all that sort of debugging and all that sort of stuff But i i spent From ninety one to two years so computers at twelve years ago on a built in priority up and obviously supplying tiles and restaurants scotland and also down than With mine that i really sort of lost the soul of it Building business building a business and my real passion was in growing the plants. That is spending so much of my free time day and being outside and i thought you know what i don't change my lifetime Another will and actually went through a big change in my life at that point anyway and it was right on. I'm doing it and it was very big. Cutoff began Ended up selling in radicals. Now in morton's up here. And i retrained botanic gardens rob gardens edinburgh for two years and came home and i traveled quite a bit and worked with a Medicine management you call medicine man in north north america which doctor and south african to really understand thoughts. And it's not until you sit feed someday truly connected to From this and i had no idea where the path was going to take in any respect. All i knew was that i want to spend the rest of my life with hats. Specifically specifically hubs Any was a leap of faith To it but i'm not sure that you've announced your question but that but it i'd love it though. I love the fact that yeah that you do. Do you just sort of made that decision. It seems like a cooling and the more we hear about how much you can do with plants. I'm going to ask a medicine man in north america. That sounds fascinating. Wh what was involved. There is his his remarkable jensen nat Booth by trying to his. He's written some books action about the moments in my study. Here i is all about medicine will welcoming nature Basically it is hard school of of learning It's not sort of any books in words. It's more physical actions that side and understanding the communication that you can have with the outside world And it was. It's an ancient ancient System we've lost the connection in our modern world that actually is still very vibrant in in the community in the in the wildest Connection with nature and really was just to learn more about that so he very much taught me a lot more about the connection of nature and hides commune with nature and the rich dodson. South africa was phenomenal. Man he was all about how to what the policy was. Just specifically hub in a medicine with lawns And that's what i'd studied. And i grow hers but i don't grow herbs. I grow because of a lot of people think especially in the hospital. They hobbs a nice culinary aromatic plants and yet actually good for nature definition of a hub for me is its medicinal full. Stop so when you look at plants says medicinal you look at our own indigenous plants. That means chick we ground other than the line oak. Alda it means opens the door to every indigent in a wild plants even more so my hope my whole path has been to aim for more information and what with the medicinal on medicinal level. Sounds incredible i. I would love that adventure. I've just at this. I think i did an interview with somebody on on mushrooms and had no idea about the sort of the the my caelian underground the ground and how connected everything is and then that took me down the rabbit hole of trees and i just read a book called over story of you heard of that one. I haven't what what what. What was this a fiction book. It's fundamentally about. I suppose how. How the growth of trees put the sort of the the context of our time on earth and generations in context. But i just find a amazing how connected nature is so. Yeah i think i would. I would love to go on on that sort of adventure journey was. Was there any key things you learn from either of those two guys that really stands so sticks in your memory that may be reaffirmed that decision for you to have that sort of life change anything that really jumped out and you went. Wow that's incredible. I'm so glad. I'm on this adventure. Two things to one. You have two quite deep yourself And secondly is making sure that you on following any rules any rules any any known. Science rules excetera is all about the key. Word is imagination able to unlock the opportunity. I find it quite. I find science by straight yet. We live in a world now where we can't move because signs sector. Don't get me wrong. I believe in living in a balanced life taking sides and taking pods and somewhere in between is is is a balanced This science that we talk about entire nine science knows. Trees communicate together Is this this brand new science. No it's not in our. This has been known by indigenous peoples for millenniums. You know we're just very backward when it comes to We think brilliant on science but actually when it comes to that in the communication that happens. It's not just underneath the solar trees the helping to feed one another one's ill communication with the russians in. This always happens on plants as well you know. There is a communication plots. I'm not wearing assigned was not meant to be told there is an indication of vibration happens on a rock on a on a in the waters in the trees in the flies. It's all around us. It's a thin bail just to be able to then have a look underneath and then have that communication with it so i find that bit about science. I'm reading a beautiful book at the moment job and chat about how science is not catching up with all the sort of in a in a watkins of trees and how they work in the family unit etcetera etcetera. But that's been known for a very very very very long time

Candidates Find It's Not Easy Getting New Yorkers To Sign Their Ballot Petitions During A Pandemic
"Anywhere in the city in the past week or so, you've probably noticed clipboard toting volunteers asking you to sign your name. That's because it's petition season. Each person running for office in New York City needs to collect hundreds of signatures to make it on the ballot. And there are more than 500 people running. W one my CI's Glen Hogan reports. I could you help get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Volunteer Rachel Pratt is collecting signatures in Madison Square Park. Do you think it helps get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Tire? You have registered Democrat in Manhattan? Okay, she's trying to get Kim Watkins on the ballot for Manhattan borough president. And it's tough going in about a half an hour. She's only gotten one person to sign. Well, I think I have to finesse my ass because I've got a up my game that passes another person, also collecting signatures and gets her second of the morning. That girl said. All right, I know what it's like. And you can use your own town values a sympathy signature. Not just anyone. Consign. You got to be a registered voter in the same party as the candidate running. And your address has to be in the district where the races but don't sign for two candidates in the same race. One of those signatures will probably get thrown out cold that has made this election season particularly challenging. I know it's a pandemic, and people have reservations about getting too close and having conversations more than 100 candidates tried to suspend petitioning The judge ruled against them. Last month, state lawmakers did lower the number of signatures required, but they also shortened the time people have to collect those signatures. Lincoln wrestler who's running for City Council, says he tested positive for Cove it right after collecting signatures, and Loree Sutton cited covert concerns about petitioning as one of the reasons she suspended her campaign for mayor. It's like ridiculous that I think may expect people to stop and sign things because, like I probably stop for myself honestly, if I was walking the streets, this is David Estrada also stocking Madison Square Park for some things. I miss. You mentioned Democrat Manhattan. Any chance he's collecting signatures for tally for Haiti, and Weinstein, a candidate for Manhattan. D Yet my gun for hire Yeah. So I just whoever pays me the highest collect signatures for basically honestly and it's all analog. No online petitions here just the serendipity of safely crossing paths with the right person with a clipboard. Thank you so much. Thanks for signing When Hogan W N Y c news form or on the elections
Houston bar struggles with how to enforce mask wearing after state mandate was lifted
"Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions. He made the announcement in a restaurant. The governor is ending a mask mandate and encouraging businesses to return to 100% capacity. How does that plan look to the staff at a restaurant? The governor did not visit. That's where Houston public Media's Katie Watkins begins her report. They're going around at Neil's Bar in Houston's East downtown neighborhood. A sign on the door reads. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. But bartender Kristin Farmer worries the end of the statewide mask mandate may make that harder to enforce. Even prior to this, it was difficult sometimes to get customers to wear masks. So Going forward. I feel like it's gonna be More so under Governor Greg Abbott's new order businesses, Concil enact their own mask requirements and safety protocols, the bar farmer works that will still require masks and social distancing. But she fears the governor's message may further embolden anti masters and put people like herself who haven't been vaccinated at risk. We're obviously in a position where the vaccine isn't available Death but are trying to still work, so it would be cool if More people were vaccinated before we started opening up everything and Not taking just the basic steps. Currently, just 7% of people living in Texas are fully vaccinated. Still, some praise the governor's decision to allow businesses to operate at full capacity that is going to be tremendous and very, very necessary for our industry. That's Melissa Stewart with a Greater Houston restaurant association. She says. The statewide mask mandate was helpful when it was stay wide, and everybody had to do it. Was easier for staff members, frankly, to enforce it says it wasn't a question. That's why restaurant owner Alex Brennan Martin says he's making mass mandatory for employees but not for customers. Those strongly encouraged. It's become contentious and putting our employees are managers myself. In the position of enforcing those regulations, especially on an issue that seems to be just about 50 50 when you talk to folks and is highly emotionally charged It's a difficult thing to ask your employees and management to do. Houston has recorded all four Major Cove in 19 variants and medical professionals warn that loosening restrictions now will set back recovery efforts. Dr Joseph our own is the chief medical officer at United Memorial Medical Center. His main concern is another spike in hospitalizations. The moment I heard about these information of the governor was saying, I immediately called for a meeting here in the hospital on talking to the rest of the leaders of the hospital. We leave. From initial plans. So what we're going to do because we think we're going to have a large number of patients coming because of this, don't not wear a mask request by the governor, he says. These plans include stocking up on more PPE having more nursing personnel and even getting additional ventilators. Other frontline health care workers like ICU nurse Yvette Polo, Mackey share his concern. Colbert is nowhere near over. There's still people know ICUs like today that are dying that will die tomorrow that will die the next day. The next day, weeks and weeks to come still because of covert. She's worried about the extra physical and mental toll. This decision will take on her colleagues. Who have already been caring for a never ending stream of covert patients for nearly a year for NPR news. I'm Katie Watkins in Houston. The
Twitter announces paid 'Super Follows' to let you charge for tweets
"Like twitter. Had its entire product roadmap in drafts for and finally hit send all end quote twitter last night announced super follow a feature to let users charge for tweets a communities feature to let users create and join groups based on specific interests so monetize followers i'll twitch or any number of things like patriot and facebook groups but for twitter. Basically quoting the verge. The payment feature called super follows will allow twitter users to charge followers and give them access to extra content that could be bonus tweets access to a community group subscription to a newsletter or a badge merely indicating your support in a mockup screenshot. Twitter showed an example where a user charges four dollars ninety nine cents per month to receive a series of perks season as a way to let creators and publishers get paid directly by their fans. Twitter also announced a new feature called communities which appear to be its take on something like facebook groups people can create and join groups around specific like cats are plants. Twitter suggests allowing them to see more tweets focused on those topics. Groups have been a huge success for facebook and a huge moderation problem too and they could be particularly helpful tool on twitter since the services opened in nature can make it difficult for new users to get started on the platform. There's no timeline yet. Four win either of these features will launch twitter listed them as what's next for its platform during a presentation for analysts and investors. This afternoon and quote as jasmine. Watkins tweeted quote. Y'all tweeted how is this app. Free one too many times and quote these are we should say literally features anyone. Any one of us could have seen as likely and possible for twitter even a decade ago. Like i know that. I saw this angle years ago and i'm by no means some sort of product guru but i guess better late than never a fire has been lit inside of twitter so let's not look a gift horse in the mouth right and it's not just on the product front twitter says it's also planning a safety mode that would let users automatically block and mute accounts that quote might be acting abusively or spammy quoting the verge again. It appears this feature will be a toggle you can turn on in a new safety mode. According to a slide in the analyst day slide deck. Here's twitter's description of how the toggle will work. If you flip it on quote automatically blocks accounts that appear to break the twitter rules and mute accounts that might be using insult to name calling strong language or hateful remarks and quote with the new safety mode. Twitter will automatically detect accounts that quote might be acting abusive or spamming and limit. How those accounts can engage with your content for seven days according to the slide and quote so feature iteration product innovation and attempts at moderation and giving users greater control to allow them to hopefully stem the tide of trolling.

"The adopt podcast is a production of WJ C. T. public media. Financial support for adopt comes from our readers. There's and listeners with additional support from the Arthur vining Davis Foundations and the twenty forty foundation more adapt Florida Dot Org Now back to Laura Watkins all right so let's step back again at hand. Go back to the solutions. Part of this conversation. Why Ah important to include solutions when you're having these conversations about climate change you don't WanNa leave people feeling completely hopeless like there's nothing that they can do and the the fastest and easiest way to make someone feel like that is tom how bad something is and then okay see you later? Hope you care about this because caring about it and being aware of the problem is not GonNa Change People's behavior. We know through years of environmental psychology that information and awareness-raising rarely are the the thing that changes someone's and actions so if you can give them a solution as part of that story then that's a really great way to make them feel like there's something they can do and to build that person's mental model of what then being involved in the solution looks like and their mind or even out in public if they can see people taking action in front of others and then it also helps them understand that there is hope the term climate crisis become extremely popular since the Guardian announced. It would be changing some of the language it uses in its own climate change reporting. Do you think that term is problematic. I don't think it's an accurate but I think it can be problematic for the general public in the sense that we you. What is a crisis to someone? I mean my crisis might be that. I don't have enough money to pay my bills this month or the. I'm just trying to get by day to day work in two or three jobs and so if you have to to crises po up against each other people are going to lean towards the personal. And I'm okay with it as long as we're talking solutions to. What kind of solutions do you recommend people talk about? This is something that I'm very passionate about. Is that when we're talking about solutions to any environmental problem but especially climate change. It hasn't matched the scale of the problem. Individual actions like switching to led light bulbs or buying a Prius. Those are gray and of course as those built up over time they can help address some of the issues that we see with climate change but individual actions that we often see people promoting as a way to solve climate change. A lot of the time. They don't even have anything to do with climate change at all like. Don't use plastic straws. There's really not connected to climate change. That would not be a direct line from ADP. They're or recycling better more. That's not going to solve the climate problem. I'm not saying that we shouldn't do those things. Those individual actions are really important but if people are doing these individual actions at home on their own and there's not opportunity for other people to see them happening or it'd be engaged at large scales. They're not going to solve the climate crisis as as the Guardian puts it because all crisis it takes a lot more momentum than people changing a light bulb in their house. So that's one thing. The other thing too is that they need to match the skill L.. The problem in the sense that this is a social issue and when we talk about social issues we might be talking about civil rights issues. LGBTQ issues women's his rights All of these things that that our civic level problems climate change is also a civic level problem and that's because the most marginalized of us in society or the people that are going to pay the most for what's happening with climate change is a social issue and the solutions that we talk about need to be civic and social solutions not individual. Wants a home you. I've gotten in conversations leading these workshops with people that come because they are a climate denier and they're really excited to have that platform in front of a a bunch of people who aren't and make waves stir things up and that's been interesting. That's happened to me before the actually Pontevedra GTM research reserve. We lead a workshop once then we had it open to the public and there was someone there who the humanly denied climate change. You also own home right on the ocean there in Pontevedra and wanted a chance and he felt like it was a platform you have. His voice heard to denies the Lavar is and this is before several of the hurricanes that we had that did a major damage in the area area. I don't be interested to talk to him today but Yeah it was. It was a really scary moment for myself and the other facilitators because he was angry and worked up and we don't want it to hijack the flow of the workshop but we gave him an opportunity to say what he had to say and use some facilitation techniques to pivot back to using his feelings as an opportunity arrested explore. What could we talk about? That would make you feel more comfortable as a solution given that we know that the climate changing regardless of why it was scary not necessarily scarier conversations with my mom sometimes but still scary so to keep this conversation productive. It seems extremely important to listen no matter what his said into into maintain an open mindedness. Yeah I think so. I think so. I think the the more you do that to the battery for our next conversation in the one one after that because you're gaining so many multiple viewpoints and instead of seeing that as someone challenging your character or your background or your scientific knowledge I just see it as this person feels comfortable enough with me to argue with me so I'm going to take that as a compliment. It was hard to do and just if used what I know to be true that we both about the same thing and rampant. Co Two is not good for environment. And it's going to hurt all the things we care about. So let's figure out something we can do about it And I and might sound easier than it really is coming from someone who has family at a deeply oppose climate science. It can be done and it can happen or you can get to a neutral neutral neutral ground and think about solutions any other tips anymore advice. You would give people that we haven't touched on yet. When that I I learned is emotionally? Very freeing thing is that you don't need to be as climate science expert to have conversations about climate science when we survey people Even to people on the sidewalk of how do you feel deal about talking about it. A lot of people express it. They're really scared because they don't know a lot about climate science and that is totally fine that you can still have these conversations without Havin Kevin. What you feel needs to be an arsenal of scientific facts? The split out at people is what we do know is that people tend to not want to hear a bunch of facts. People don't remember scientific facts. I mean think about high school science or so a little probably or your call from that and so don't feel that pressure to Know so much about about how climate science happens and ocean acidification and. What's the right level for the ocean and all these things? You don't need that Arsenal. If you know that there's a value guys have in common and the you know oh how to recommend a civic or community level solution those are the most important parts of that conversational sandwich and what happens in the middle is maybe a little less important As long as we can get to commonality and solutions and positive hopeful conversations.

"Lauren Watkins describes herself as an environmental psychologist college Est.. She teaches different groups. How to communicate about environmental issues through workshops? All right I'm calling you one minute early. That's okay reporter who covers the environment and climate change. Almost exclusively workshops fascinate me. Ready to go all right. Let's keep rolling in one of the things that the paper me is to go to a zoo and it's like here's dying here. The otters they lose. Here's what they eat. Here's here's why they're dying and it's just it's like obituary pre obituary forever seasons in there and I can leave you not feeling hopeful. One of the most important things you need to hold onto. Interpreters Turpin is inspiring hope for saving resources. You're interpreting so they want a little bit of fried but not essential feared. What was the difference between the luminous take to Lawrence Teaching this group about the best ways to communicate through science at places like museums zoos but he also leads workshops where she teaches people how to talk about climate change when she first told me about this? gummy wondering. How do you get a job? Like this Lawrence's her first job ever selling cell phones back in the early two thousands. It was awful but I learned a lot about human behavior during that time while she was pedaling. Not Isn't Motorola flip phone. She was also studying psychology at flagler college. I thought that I wanted to specialize in therapy sessions while one realized pretty quick. That wasn't my Gig but she was passionate about the environment so she got a master's degree a natural resource management and environmental science and finally a PhD in environmental psychology involves understanding how people interact with the natural world on how they become psychologically connected or disconnected from it and what kind of behaviors they have and how they Influence the environment so I work Qalat Day to day on research and then Imagery words different communication strategies for environmental projects. The nonprofit she works for called impact by design. Zayn works with organisations to find out how they want people to change behavior when it comes to their causes and teaches them how to make that happen. These climate change workshops were part of that to there are possible because of a partnership with National Network for Ocean and climate change interpretation or Gnocchi. Lauren was recently elected the organization's executive chair okay. So let's let's let's dig into these strategies. What's the most effective way to start a conversation and get your audience engaged? Well typically if you're going to have a conversation about climate change the the best way you can start off with with is going with a value putting a value at the beginning atop of that conversation and by value I mean things that people Their ideas that people generally hold things they care about things that can be really hard to shift like caring about your family or security and safety. Those are values that are universal universal. We call that in the field of environmental interpretation a universal concept that as a human on this planet you can relate to you so you want to start off with something like that As opposed the things that maybe we just care about or one person may care about them so not projecting our values on others when we talk about. Climate change is one way to keep from getting the door slammed in your face face or other cranberry sauce in your face. Whatever it might be Thanksgiving table so trying to make people realize that we have something in common and for example one of these values that the national network for Ocean climate change interpretation tested were values of protection responsible management What that looks like is saying? Thank something like It's just the right thing to do to care about each other. The people and places that mattered us in our lives regardless of whether it's a partisan issue or or human caused or not we just want to protect the people places we care about from harm and are there some some common values that people tend to use that are proven to be ineffective. Yeah there are some really interesting that that we tried out over the years One as we call it the cute critter trap so seeing the polar bear hanging onto that lies last. The Ice Cube in the middle of the ocean is very triggering but does not necessarily productive Even though it might be hard to imagine not everybody cares about polar bears in the Arctic. Dake especially these. These are places and species. We may have never seen so if you have your your family which is a polar bear people tend to value something a little bit more universal so like that so not appealing to just images of cute animals are beautiful places because also not. Everybody has a luxury to visit a zoo or park mark or have leisure time to go on vacation to these places another one that backfires that we found is using this concept of Science says Oh so the science shows us this and we know this because the science particularly today that can be triggering a partisan for people And there's a lot of public discourse around which science France we can trust. And what does it mean to be a scientist and who's science is valued over others in so steering away from that As an environmental educator in the past I leaned on that a lot a lot you know we know this from this article and that can come across as kind of elitist and shut people down. That might feel a little bit and maybe they don't know a lot about science. The other traps that people watch out in these conversations about climate change. But there's so many volunteer but yeah a couple of the That I've seen in the path that we've researched are focusing on We should take action for climate change because of the economic benefit that we'll get from that that's another thing that not everybody cares so much about especially if you're just trying to make it day to day or Thinking about the consumerism said of we need to take care of the climate. So there's plenty of fish for everybody to eat mitigating mitigating the problems not from a concern consumerism or economic standpoint but trying to mitigate these problems because they are just the right thing to do to responsibly. Manage our natural. The resources is more important and more effective with most Americans are so let's say we've established that shared value in our audience understands why climate change matter. What's what's the next step an explanation that helps people understand what's happening so if you if you just include like there's this problem and here's why should we should care about but if you don't follow up with why what's happening is happening and what we can do about it? It can make people feel hopeless or really stressed out. We get inundated with environmental problems Ivory Day hearing about them from multiple sources. So you WanNa think about an explanatory metaphor which is what we call them. Our strategic framing workshops that helps super understand the mechanism. That's play so For example using an analogy that helps people understand the role that carbon dioxide plays in the environment and what that might look like is a sentence like if we burn fossil fuels for energy that we add more and more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and the atmosphere. This fear is kind of like a blanket around the earth in the more co two that we add to that blanket that thicker it gets and the hotter it can get because now we're wrapped in this heat trapping being blanket and so that analogy helps people understand that the atmosphere has a role to play that. Co Two can't escape the atmosphere because it's like a blanket around the earth and the figure that blanket gets the hotter things can be for people another one that has to do with rampant versus regular co two as so I like this one. Because is it frames a conversation that regular carbon dioxide is a very normal part of our environment. We say the argument a lot from people the lane a little bit more Towards words denying that climate change is actually a problem that is just a natural process and it is a natural process but What we also know is that rampant carbon dioxide so all this excess carbon dioxide is not natural and regardless of What side of the political fence you sit on we can agree that regular? Co Two is natural unhealthy part of our world but rampant carbon dioxide. We see as occurring. We know that that's happening and the By burning fossil fuels for energy. We're adding to this rampant carbon dioxide issue and that that is having implications for our climate and because we all agree. Hopefully that protecting the people places we love or responsibly manager adjourned natural resources for future. Generations is the right thing to do. We can kind of get past that mechanism of WHO's at fault and moving.

"Signs. I'm your host Ethan Edinburgh. And today, we are talking about a fantastic film called a rival every now, and then the films, we do are a little more. Let's just say annoying. But this film, I felt was absolutely fantastic. And I have to absolutely fantastic guests. I, you know, him from the Jeremiah wonders podcast. It's Jeremiah Watkins. Hello w anima scientist, and he's an expert in saxophone. Yeah. The saxophone scientists cool. Yeah. It is. We've never had that on the show. Oh, happy to be here. Happy to have you. And of course, you know, her from her book, secrecy literacy and perfectibility in indigenous New, Mexico, it's Dr Aaron Devonport. Hey, thanks for having me. Thanks for being here. So you're you're I wanna say this, right? It says here that you specialize in linguistic and sociocultural anthropology. You're interested in technologies of language circulation secrecy and in visibility the in Berendt ac-. So I wanna ask you about that in in digit. Why do you say this word indigenous not indigene indigenous and sovereignty sovereignty was blowing and leaks and critical language documentation? That is all correct. But boy, I really need to work on streamlining. On sane say, I'm instantly intimidated. I'm intimidated by your saxophone. But I didn't bring my sacks with me. So there's no tangible way like you have your knowledge. It's all right here. Yeah. So obviously. Yeah. A little bit of a long winded explanation of all the things you're into. But maybe you could take me through some of them because I don't really understand it all so what about what my my main point where I'm zooming in. Here is secrecy and invisibility. Yeah. Simul linguistic anthropologists, which is we'll get to this. I'm sure a little different than the linguists in the movie. So we're really interested in language and its relationship to culture. So how people actually use language like the idea that you can't study it outside of culture interaction the secrecy part. I work with a group of an indigenous group to New Mexico and one in Texas Ahler speakers of this language called. Well, I'm actually not going to say the name of the language because in my I know someone's right? Language, kind of is. So these are folks who are losing their language to English and Spanish, increasingly like a lot of other indigenous people worldwide, and they're trying to reintroduce it by using literacy for the first time. So it was an oral only language, and they're very concerned about it leaking out to non tribal members or even within the community. So I use that as a way to understand why we keep secrets what that does socially wouldn't be good to get the word out and spread the language and keep the language alive. Yeah. Good question. I mean, they very much want to keep it alive, but their language is very tied to their religion and to their political system. So for instance, if you know, let's say a healing ceremony or particular word or a particular song that you know, is just for your clan and someone else hears it, then it could ideas it could upset the whole balance of the political and religious system. So. Kind of like, you know, when you read about other secret societies like, the Mason or any number of groups that really their power comes from holding onto particular kinds of knowledge. Gosh, you very cool. You have any secrets Djerma. I've I've got so many secrets layout shirt channel. Was one of my secrets is has to do it today is I showered and put tie like time into like getting ready for this. Because I thought it was on video. And then yesterday, I did a podcast.
