Will Cancel Culture Come for Us All?

"You heard representative. Jim jordan of ohio. Say this week as the house debated whether to impeach the president many of these republicans are calling it cancel culture. This has been a controversial topic. But we're going to dive in quality assurance where we take a second look at a big tech story in the news. Last march futurist. Amy webb predicted that cancel culture and the backlash to it would become an even bigger deal in the year ahead said now that's proving true in more ways than she even expected in the aftermath of the attack on the capital. Eric trump Very publicly proclaimed that his family. You know we're being cancelled and it's interesting to see the push pull the tension between those seeking to cancel others. Those complaining that they themselves have been canceled. You know this is one of these situations where the technology enabling all of this is both megaphone and also the infrastructure and also the stop button so the question really is. Who's the ultimate arbiter. What are the rules. They're becoming less and less clear. How do we tease apart. The arguments about cancel culture that are kind of specious and the real behavior. That is behind it right. So here's the predicament. There's a sort of glomming on when you feel like you agree with somebody. The instruments of technology of made that really easy i mean. Let's think back a few months ago when everybody was posting a black square on their instagram accounts. Away of signaling. Their discontent corporations were doing that too. That has translated to real world. Cancellations i mean we have started to see corporate denials of service ranging from aws kicking parlor off to facebook and twitter and more recently youtube silencing. Donald trump's accounts and that for some has social consequences but for other that has real world business consequences. And we're in the situation where we are both inventing the rules and playing the game at the same time. is there confusion. Do you think because there are many people who say particularly. Let's say like on black twitter that there was never a mechanism to address problems. Before and that you know what came to be seen as cancel. Culture was really almost like collective bargaining happening on twitter. It was a whole bunch of people who could like you said express the same opinion and get a result when they never could have before well. The lifeblood of cancel culture is dopamine right. It's the hit that we get from. Feeling like we're a part of a movement and you can see that visualized in metrics. There are some easy fixes to this. We're not gonna fix our culture overnight. The actual problems that we are having we can totally address the mechanisms that are helping to fan the flames twitter could take away metrics so the general public no longer sees the number of times something has been re tweeted or liked maybe you as the original poster could see that but others cannot. That's one way to reduce that dopamine head to reduce the sensation that we are feeling the sense of urgency. 'cause urgency is also part of cancel culture and the same could happen on facebook. There are addressable problems here. you know. There's an argument to be made. That cancelling cancel culture gives rise to additional cancel culture right. it's it becomes as vicious cycle. I mean that's what we're seeing right now with eric trump and the remarks that he's making about cancel culture and and specifically with regard to his dad. You know. i think that's where some of the resentment comes in. I do think that around the time of the metoo movement what has come to be called cancel. Culture right was an exercise in power by people who traditionally have not had power and that that was part of the democratizing effective social media that a lot of people could say the same thing all at once about a misbehaving man or white supremacy and get a result. And that's the tricky. That's the tricky side of us right. Because arguably the net effect of that movement did real good in society and so cancelling the mechanisms that would have led to. That may not be the best for our longer terms but the flip side is that we wind up in the situation that we're in now and if you stop for a moment and think about the words. The semantics cancel culture is alliterative. It's easy to remember. It's an active verb and it itself is conceptually easy for people to understand whereas dachshund or something else may not be right. 'cause cancel culture was a more positive reframing in some ways of targeted harassment which i think we have to be honest about. That has been the mechanism of the far-right online. And you know it's like cancel. Culture was the leftist rebrand That's you know. I hadn't thought about that before but you're absolutely right and i think that that is some of the that is currently being made by those on the far right which is that they themselves now are being targeted and harassed and listen. I'm a target of some of that. Hate and as much as it pains me to say this. They do have a point. Cancel culture impacts them through targeted attacks the same way that they are targeting others. The solution to all of this would be for somebody to come out to the playground. Blow the whistle and tell us all to settle down. We're going to get detention by that. I mean leadership which we have had very little of over the past few years.

"Thomas becket yes okay. Born around eleven twenty and died in eleven seventy. he's also known as saint thomas of canterbury or Sometimes who refer to him as thomas a becket. Okay yeah anyway. So thomas becket. He is venerated as a saint and martyr by both the catholic church and the anglican church He engaged in conflict with henry. The second king of england over the rights and privileges of the church and at one point excommunicated the archbishop of york so tough rain away to france for a bit under the protection of king. Louis the seventh of france but then he returned in eleven seventy two england so henry second in england said something to the effect of like ugh. This guy is driving me. Four of his knights interpreted this as a command to go. Get rid of thomas becket So on december twenty ninth seventy reginald fitz ertz huge morville william to tracy and richard le breton showed up at canterbury cathedral. According to accounts left by the monk jer vase of canterbury and i witnessed named edward grim. The knights placed their weapons under a tree outside the cathedral and hid their chainmail armor on your cloaks before entering the cathedral to challenge becket priest the night. He's hold beckett. They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor. And i'm ready to die so Edward grandma eyewitness. He wrote a very extensive account of exactly what happened. I will save you all the details. Let's just say that for nights wielding swords kill the priest in canterbury cathedral. That's terrible so soon. After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades. Yeah stuff happened so the fact that this happened so quickly was kind of saying that. This guy was a big deal. So related trivia. Facts about thomas becket. Geoffrey chaucer's the canterbury tales. Ninety two is set in a company of pilgrims on their way from southern to the shrine of saint. Thomas becket in canterbury cathedral. Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand. Pilgrims would have visited the shrine every year for more than three hundred years. That's my gosh locked. Yes it was adorned in marble gold and jewels and murdered saints. Tombs was one of unparalleled splendor in fifteen thirty eight. during the reformation. The shrine was destroyed following the orders of henry. The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that. Can i tell you flawlessly Also nineteen fifty-nine play by John we called beckett which was made into a movie with the same title and paul. Webb's play four nights in nair's borough which was written in one thousand nine hundred nine which recounts the aftermath of the murder of thomas becket by the four nights who made the worst career choice in history. Yeah that's goes without saying well if you don't if all of these facts don't stick in your head. Look at the name k. e. t. the cane. His name is right in the middle. And if you look at it. It looks like four blades. Good the name so four blades. Stuck together by the four to killed him in canterbury. That's thomas becket.

"But but i am i'm incredibly too and i'm hopeful for when you guys you know. Get this setup in kentucky and then figure out your next hub out here in california. I i get excited about and that might be wishful thinking. But i get really excited about the ways. We could establish these these greenhouses. You know all over and and feed to your earlier point the country in so much more local ways you know do do better by people so they don't have to be chemicals in their food and there doesn't have to be quite as much Pollution that that is created just from trucking all that food around now and we can get there. The solution through there is going to be leadership consumers pushing in the public eye. Obviously it's your political support needed but political folks are gonna listen to their constituents and people well. So that's that's a great question to ask you know when we think about what's in store for the future of asset harvest for the future of high-tech farming is it constituent education that that needs to happen to help make this a success across the country. What what can everyone. Who's listening to this today. Thinking i want to advocate for this kind of a food system in my community. How how do we do that. What what what action steps do we need to take be aware. Vote with your dollar. I mean that's you know. We all feel powerless in so many different ways right. It's it's not true and if you can if we can connect with five or ten people around us in we're all buying goods and products and services that you know that feels wrong rib you. Don't vote or ears. Stop you vote every day and so for us again. We want to just be one small player in a bigger picture of the american food conversation. Getting i mean this is the very act of look beyond me or the minded. Mike is somewhat irrelevant. More of this is the conversations with the inner playing food. Figure out where you be aware of what's going on and then figure out what you support. Whatever that is could be a local farmer that has this type of farming or this type of company. That's making their on this way. We all have the power to go with dollar in that alone. You know that that alone. That's where the largest economic generator in the world. right now. we do have the largest agriculture into consumer the whole at large decide to vote with their dollar. This will ships overnight for us. And we're interested to see how this plays out because we have caught a lotta early attention. We've been fairly influential again behind the scenes you'll but when it comes to consumers we more will be producing fruits and vegetables Here and then it becomes an active conversation and is expected to be a slow roll with us. Maybe or is it going to be something that we a conversation about it and we are building with our dollar on what food we don't what we what we provide to our family. So it's it's going to take leadership at a lot of different levels. Young activists artists with hala titians business leader but ultimately goes down to the everyday person today decide to do. And that's where you know. We'll we'll see it's not a one year process press. We feel like it's a. It's a decade long journey. But but we definitely think a long game and how can listeners. Follow the journey. How how can people keep up to date with what you are doing at the company and the kinds of innovation that you guys are helping to champion well later. This year will be selling our tomatoes to the top twenty five groceries in the us mainland east coast midwest southeast that seventy percent population. So go ahead and start asking your shirt tomatoes. Because we'll be. I will be a mini to all the largest retailer in the country. Walmart costco kroger. So you can look google app or in great all right my friend my favorite question to ask everyone and it will be your last. I promise i'll let you go in a minute The podcast you know is called work in progress. And i'm curious from where you sit today. What feels like a work in progress in your life. It's it's really for me personally. It's it's trying to enjoy the journey. I mean there's there's no destination we'll go one place that's somewhere we pass away that's it. It's the journey day. Living in the present moment getting caught up. What did i do two years ago or two weeks ago. What am i doing in two years so in the work in progress for me even the journey for us as a whole are very hard work. it's challenging and we leave re tackling very big problems. That are important. All emotions get there. We all get worked up a new trying to understand that you know all we have is the present moment trying to enjoy that journey and it's hard. It's something we all collectively in here on this and try to do every day but just being cognizant that it's a journey of the work in progress. Really just enjoying acquires kind of a always for me. I feel like that requires a bit of a daily check in of am i present am i am i. Savoring this even even the hard stuff. Am i really i really in it. I think that's a really healthy thing to try to institute and that's all we can do right. So these big conflicts problems that circle the world in that the fear and anxiety of of all of it. it can get overwhelming. But i do.

"Consumer voting with their dollar in the next ten or twenty years or or critical but it certainly all time that we can to make a drastic shift. And hopefully there's a silver lining on a coded. It's the guy the galvanized us together. We can for me even being in kentucky. You know what happens in the capital china affect southeast kentucky in two months. Now if that doesn't wait people under up to understand that there's one in the wrong. I really have no idea what will but i am hopeful that if people are amid we see now it doesn't matter we can't separate ourselves at or whatever or so interconnected we have to solve problems together and then hopefully coming out of coma there's seven galvanizing spirit carries is on. Yeah i agree with you. And i find that to be such an inspiring perspective and i think it's important to hit on the truce that we need to understand that we have we as humanity. We have engineered a global planet. We've chosen this. We've increased travel. We've we've become so enamored by so many aspects of each other's cultures and yet you also see the politicizing of culture in place in such a strange way and what i wish we could hold. Is that two things can be true. We concern global priorities for humanity. And we can care about our local community and that feels really clear to me in places like you're referencing when we talk about kentucky when we talk about appalachia because with anywhere you look you can see the history of the region and you know you mentioned that that your area of kentucky is is is or has been a huge coal producing Resource for america. We powered america on coal for a very long time. And yet we do to your point have to understand that. As we evolve science evolves we have to engineer better systems. And when i think about generations. You know i i know. Your granddad was a coal miner. I i know that there has been devastating impacts of of mass job loss across the region. You know at least two today. Eleven coal companies have filed for bankruptcy just since trump was elected president and the job losses are meaningful to people in these areas that have been employed in these companies. And so when. I start thinking about innovation when i start thinking about how we've got to do better to support seven and a half and eventually nine billion people i think about regions like like the one that you grew up in. I remember in the last election cycle. Just thinking you know. Why aren't these big. Solar companies marching into kentucky and saying we're going to build new solar plants. Here we're gonna give you better jobs with better wages cleaner working environments less health hazards great benefits. We've we've gotta we've got to think about all these people in all these places as we think about innovation and change. And and i i suppose i just say all of that really offer that. It's something that you know being from california and knowing how the environment's been important to me Much in the way it was to you playing outside for my whole childhood. I to think about what i want it to look like for my eventual kids and their eventual kids and and i wonder seeing those impacts in your community. Do you now traced back. Because it's easy for us right to have conversations in the present and say this is what we'd like to see differently and this is how we'd love to invest in people and support economic development in hard hit regions of the country and then think about the global impact and all of it and then we have to. But do you think that that came from. You're seeing the region change throughout your life do. Do you think that's why you took the path that you did in college. Why you went to washington d. Do you think that those things are all tied together. Yeah one absolutely so a couple things on that for me a and that's where we so what what were pursuing a very exciting thing about what we're doing is is i do. Look at my background. I try to tell anybody and everybody at mead around here just one individual the it comes from a background somewhat similar may be very similar to many people around here in. it's somehow leadership's responsibility it either. Universities or whatever to inspire and galvanize youth rates so for me doing it's it's the largest all-cash investment ever made in eastern kentucky were building in the poorest congressional district of us in yes. It's been a long process. But i'm just one individual and frankly at this point i could related here until i'm one hundred but i could somehow pass at some point in this thing's going to carry on one way or the or move on. How do we galvanize young us. I don't know but what i do is the best and brightest from kentucky. Don't say to rebuild a region. They moved to boston. Move down land in san francisco. That is a problem and we got. We have got to get our best and brightest to not. Just sit in san francisco in building figure out our wiki get tennis shoes faster. And figure out having back to their communities rebuild their communities reimagine. What's possible for me it. Was you know moving back. Kentucky happened about ten the down to the state for ten years and i got an undergraduate. I'm wanted to build energy projects going to build a. You're not going to build natural gas. That was emerging but not the so. What was a lot. Women solar so for me the sustainability east ruling name over time and it was just a sheer fact that i wanted to build. Stop in at that time when you built winning solo a part of building large-scale solar some of the largest in the us. In what i saw happen over that ten year time frame of friends namely even just seeing local news and what was happening i mac. I think it's one of the darkest stains in american history. I think we'll look back how we shut down the mines in whether it's the laughed the right you know the recive or the conservative side. It's irrelevant but we. All benefited from low cost electricity. The carried us to be the economic powerhouse. That literacy came from coal. shut down the mind. Forget the mars. It's the people who power those nights coal is just.

Incredible city and region really of america. That i'm passionate about and Yeah i just kind of. I kind of knew from that conversation. We had that day that i wanted the public at large. You know the the listeners of this podcast to be able to hear about what you're doing and it's really interesting as we as we get ready to have a conversation about changing systems and and really prioritizing the health of the nation through food. We're doing this in the midst of the first global pandemic in one hundred years which is just so surreal does does what's happening with. Cova did make you hopeful that we will take the need to create better systems more seriously or were you feeling a bit despondent right now or maybe a little bit above generally speaking i am. I'm an eternal optimist. So i do. I do tend to believe that it young humanity in the planet is whole has has its best days ahead of us but we're certainly facing challenging times and in look at health food all of which are becoming more and more complex as humans have now gotten to seven billion on november twenty two nine billion into be almost any people in have adequate health inadequate energy inadequate soon systems. It's it's gonna be complex but you know the good thing for human innovation is found a way before in as long as we align and we align our goals for people and planet. I optimistic that we can use innovation technology to to continue to better the way in which we're building stuff to keep all going did did your passion for agriculture not to use a metal. I realized i just about used a farming. I was gonna say. Do you think the seed was planted in during during your childhood because you were born and raised in kentucky. So were you. Were you in a rural area. Were you in an agricultural zone. You know there's there's a lot of open landing kentucky and even getting out just just being out. That group is a is a very you know what someone you'll normal Normals relevant abnormal Across but i would say in kind of middle america Ads have high school degrees income from a very humble background of sorenson. We didn't talk about a lot of my other. Mother were just looking at. They added week in looking back on it. Now you know the challenges they went through. Just let's food on the table. That was enough. Where's that coming from. Are we getting up to the table. I've been very fortunate privilege to be able to take a step back. I definitely think of my roots. One being in kentucky where coal was very dominant so one of the largest cold states in the us region has been known to power. The u asked in the now moving back to kentucky in hopefully helping transform central appalachia region. That's known for feeding the us but definitely my upbringing is has been able to round neom sorts on kinda gone out to new york and gone to dc pursued of their work and now being able to come back here so a place very to me. And i know a lot of people talk about waste based investment but i think tracking to the source of where. We're doing stuff looking up on me. I in knowing who's all involved in as we continue to transform its place based investments can continue to play a critical art of rebuilding system. So that we know the communities building building here is incredibly important to me run up. Here's been shaving certainly lansing before we move into the work that you're referencing. I do love to hear about how people grew up. I think so often about the impressive folks. I get to sit across from and an about their current work in the world. And i wonder how it all started. So you know you. You mentioned a little bit of your upbringing and a little bit about your parents. Who who were you as a kid you know. What was jonathan into at eight or ten years old. What what was life for you. That i am like any other kid that they grew up in head. Good friends and family around me and and didn't didn't know too much about environmental planet as a whole. But i knew i enjoy buying a creek or a streamer. You'll enjoy playing playing with my friends in a field and didn't think much about it until a little bit later and went to public schools growing up public university the university hockey But it wasn't until. I decided to move to new york and pursued a career in in the wind and solar industry In the there were many steps. That kinda guy really started on ravel all the stuff that goes on in order to to make sure that there is. You'll power that it turns on your lights or To your table so for me. I did a very humble background child. It's been able to ground me in source but it's stages more about. How do we ensure that those national the kids that are coming up now can enjoy these these same experiences in the we have clean streams that we have beautiful mountain tops in that. We have rolling fields. That's that's not a given right. It's very jarring to think about but you know we can cova What's happening that. We just feel like all this is. It's a certain thing like humanity's going to continue is. That's just what happens. None of it is we have to will it into existence in if we don't we'll police change in many of the systems interim place that are there providing our food or our water in and so on and so forth. It's not a given. The next generation is going to have editor them. Last generation of the american dream right Like every every mother author just just wants to be able to do enough to make sure that their son or daughter. mayhem in in. We're getting being wasted.

Taylor Swift Rips Scooter Braun For Selling Her Masters For $300M

"Well as I mentioned earlier, I've been dying to this story across the Bloomberg late yesterday about the celebrity talent manager kind of arch nemesis of Taylor Swift. We're talking about Scooter Braun shaking off and selling Swifts master recordings from our first six albums to L. A based investment firm, a Shamrock Capital advisors. So writing about it, as only he can do, noting that Taylor Swift is a bulletproof investment. Their own. Alex Webb Bloomberg opinion European technology media columnist with us on the phone from London, where it's evening, so thank you for agreeing to do with this because I know it's getting late. They're over in the UK, Alex Love love this story. So why is Taylor Swift, a bulletproof investment? But in the bars we can sort of in very broad terms. Um, DVD after its office three categories. There are those that have clearly suffered things like hospitality tourism. There are those that have done really well, you know the likes of zoom and telling health companies and gold, for instance. And then there are those which haven't necessarily been well if it affected possibly by the virus, but equally when Sorry. I'm being like next kind of ours. But equally when life hopefully returns to new, normal, they're not going to see a drop off either. And, frankly, music streaming fits into that category on dumb Taylor. Swift is, of course, one of the most desirable catalog of music right now on, so private ecstasy is nothing up. Yeah, it's really is kind of fascinating. I think the more that we are. Unfortunately, in this lockdown, like we continue to see those companies that are figuring their way through are benefiting as a result of it. On you Do think about right. As you say, Spotify. I mean, is one of those that I mean, we really seen that stock shoot up tremendously, but the subscriber numbers you say you're growing and much the same pace as they did before Cove it But nonetheless, people are thinking about content to put on these platforms. Exactly. And so this fund Shamrock Capital, which actually originally the family investment vehicle from Roy Disney and his heirs, they raised the second Fund this summer to invest in content. That's not just music. That's also film and video games, in fact, But the Lions are certainly the biggest investment so far. We don't know how much it's going to be funded by debt, but they're ponying up 300 million for this tastes with Captain Officer First six albums. And it's also remarkable piece of business for the Carlyle Group and Scooter Braun because they acquired the whole label, but 300 million as well just a year ago. They also have some big smiles and that one day I'm gonna ask you could you say it's bulletproof investment, but my dollar daughters really into Taylor Swift said. There's been a lot of Taylor in our house. On. I like her, too. What's interesting, though, is she has been in a battle with Scooter Braun really kind of ticked off that she has basically lost control of her music. And she has talked about re recording those early albums and then putting them out again. Would that reduce potentially The value of this investment. I think it would. It would certainly lasted only limited upside, I would say, you know, I think in an ideal world she would be helping them promote music because, of course, she will still get a cut. From the publishing royalties on bond there. Unfortunately, she's not willing to play with them on that, because into Braun is still going to be getting some sort of residuals from many further plays as part of his deal with Shamel. Nonetheless, I think as a listener, there is still great loyalty in any music to the original version on D s so while around the edges, it might reduce a little bit of the of the upside. I really don't think it's a death now. Well, I love this story 11 because you write about Taylor, but I also do love this kind of big takeaway that you talk about this third category as you mentioned of companies that have profited. Were modestly for the pandemic, but they're unlikely to see their businesses negatively affected when it's over. It's an interesting way to kind of look at this market environment We just have about 30 seconds left. Yes. And I think that you know, the key point here is the steady, predictable returns. Spotify is quite a good business not possible at the moment, not generating met. Great was sent to shareholders beyond the stock price so that they think the great appeal for private equity. Do you have a favorite Taylor Swift song? But I was too embarrassing to say that I don't know how it happened all that well, But let's shoot for London boy, right? Because that's really where I am. Yeah. I mean, come on, Alex. She date somebody from the UK right for like 50 from where I live. Same. Same. All right, Alex, thanks for sticking around

"Dot co for all the details on those courses and of course I will link that in the show notes and now onto the show. Here's my conversation with author Amy Webb about teaching our children about disability. Let's jumping. Amy Welcome to three and thirty. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. It is thrilling for me to be able have you on to talk about this topic that is so important and also to be able to congratulate you on your new book, which just came out awesomely Emma my kids love both of your books so much and I just think they are an amazing resource for families. So thank you for the work that you do. Thank you so much I'm I'm really glad to hear that. And today we're we're doing a series for the month of September called. You are your child's most important teacher with back to school season in swing and so today we're going to be talking about how to talk to your children about disability and I'm so excited that you've come with your three takeaways for us and we can just dive right in because we have a lot to cover. Absolutely and I'm so glad you mentioned the back to school to because I think this is the best time like one of the best time to talk to kids about this because they're going to have kids who are of all abilities in their classroom. Yes. So my first takeaway is bring disability representation into your home. So when my daughter was little meaning that you know she wasn't in school yet. So we were out in a battle the time going to playgrounds and going to different story times we were just constantly in that mode of. Being aware of the kids around her being aware of their, wearing her of teaching them as I mean kids would. Stare and point they would say things they would sometimes come up and grab her arms and I. You know from the very beginning felt like, I, I need to be an educator I, want to be a bridge between. Them and my daughter because at this age, these are her peers you know when she's. She's little enough that also she's not at an age that she can advocate for herself and so from from zero to five got that fell on us and I really wanted you know the way I had seen my other daughters kids. Play, really, easily together at that age not playground or park, and so but when they have these these questions and they're like, Whoa, what's going on she doesn't have an arm. wise that wheelchair there's this huge boundary there. So for so long I thought well, kids don't know any better..

"A year or so ago, a podcast listeners sent me an article that she'd read on the blog cup of Joe and said, I would love to hear this author on your podcast. As. Soon, as I read the opening pair of that article, I mean literally within sentences I knew that I needed to get the author of the Article Amy Webb on the podcast for a conversation about talking to our children about disability. Amy Is an artist writer mother and creator of the popular blog this little mickey state home as the special needs mom. She advocates for the disability and special needs community through her interviews and writing on her blog and other platforms. She's the author of the Award Winning Children's book when Charlie met Emma which promptly purchased as soon as I read her article on Cup of Joe and it is one of my children's all time favorites the message, the writing the illustrations are all perfection. Amy Second Book Awesomely Emma, just released last week and it is every bit as fantastic as the I. I firmly believe that these are books that every family needs in their children's library and I hope that this conversation with the author today will only make the books all the more meaningful for you. To introduce, amy in her work, I want all of you to experience that Cup of Joe Article, the way that I did by hearing those compelling opening paragraphs. So I was going to start this episode by reading them to you but then I thought why would i read them when I could ask the author herself to do it? So. Here is amy setting the stage for our three and thirty discussion today by reading the beginning of her article, which is titled Navigating a Special Needs Encounter. Here we go. It was during a routine eighteen week ultrasound that we found out. Our second daughter would be disabled at the time hearing the doctor tell us that all of her limbs were quote to formed misshapen.

A Conversation With Maria Hinojosa And Lulu Garcia-Navarro

"The one and only Monday. Joins, me now welcome Lulu. It's it's such a pleasure. I. It is such a pleasure to have you on and to read this book it's called once I was you and it is based around the story. Of how you came to the United States for the first time, tell us that story. Yeah. Well, it's an interesting story. I didn't actually know it like a lot of us. We don't actually ask our parents. So how exactly did I know that you came for example, my whole family we were born in Mexico my dad MPC go of us in Mexico City and dad gets hired by the University of Chicago. He's a medical doctor dedicated to research and long story short he helps to create the cochlear implant. He was an amazing human being. May He rest in peace? So that was in Chicago and my mom, and the four of us kids I was the baby in her arms get on a plane. It's the early nineteen. Sixty's we fly from Mexico City to Dallas and change planes in Dallas, and then we're GONNA fly onto Chicago and. When I finally found out the story when I wrote raising, which is a Motherhood Memoir that I wrote like twenty years ago. You know I found out that there was this whole thing that happened at the airport and that an immigration agent was like you know saying that had some weird skin thing and you know maybe had to put me in quarantine and my mom was like Nah and then I came and I saved the no she didn't say it like this but basically, it was like me Ma Ma Ma you know. She's five feet tall by the way, but stood up and. Know had this kind of moment with immigration agent and and it was a story that I told. Kind of like saying, wow, my mom is such a cool woman like I understand where I get my powerful voice even though she's tiny, she spoke back to an immigration agent. and. Then in the writing of this book, blue is really what happens is that I really understand what was happening there. There were trying to separate you from your mother. They basically told your mom that they were GonNa, take you away and put you in quarantine quote unquote and that she was free to go with her other children but that you would have to stay behind I mean. Can you imagine like? When my mom called me in the midst of and you know Lou that I've been covering this story, the entirety, my career immigration writ. Large. And my mom calls me at the airport. I was flying from one back when we were flying around and in the midst of the height of babies being put into cages, we were hearing the voices. You know we knew this was happening. This is not. This not begin with the trump administration but anyway. Mom. Calls me and she's crying she's like is Gay It could have been me. If I'm a your she was like that was I could have been one of those moms and I swear to Lulu that. By heart dropped I was like Oh. My God. So it's not a story of like my mom. Eh, you know speaking back it's a realized now a story of trauma and that. Wouldn't have happened I think had I not written the book and had the horror of immigration policies becomes so. Crystal. Clear. So inhumane so hurtful and frankly now finally so public You. As you mentioned what brought to Chicago, which is where you grew up, but you always maintained your connection to Mexico and your roots you'd go back and forth. You came here on a green card. When did you become a citizen? I asked this simply because that transition of becoming. An American you said was difficult for you. You. You found it hard to sort of occupy these two spaces. So, it was great because in the writing of the book, I actually had to like do the time line and and then I had to go back and find my citizenship. It was a actually I had just come back from a reporting trip with Scott Simon Scott and I were down inside whether it was December of Nineteen eighty-nine Lau Offensive Little Trenton Webb the FMLN offensive the guerilla warfare was happening inside word and I went down to produce Scott. And I came back and just a few days later I took the oath. Look the reason why it was complicated was because way back then maybe now I am beginning to understand maybe it was because of that traumatic experience in Airport in Dallas I, always kind of new. Like this isn't a certain thing for you. This thing about you being able to come in and out of the United States you've done your whole life. Now. You're a woman you're a journalist you've been to Cuba. You've got you've been tool Salvador you. You know. There may be a time when they say you can't come back and I understood that and so I have to be honest as I am the memoir he was motivated in large part by fear that that my green card could be taken away and that I could not be allowed and this was before this whole conversation of like what's happening now you know this was way before it was a different time but I think I kind of I, kind of knew it. So the thing that happens when you become a citizen in this country is you have to raise your right hand and you have to swear that you will bear arms for this country. And people who are born in this country like my own kids haven't had to do that. When you have to do that you take this thing really seriously you know like the Constitution and the bill of rights and you know all like you take it really seriously, and I think that's why because the book is certainly it's about immigration, but it's also about like my. My struggle for democracy and being seen as a journalist taken seriously to be that's all a part of democracy and it just becomes I mean I was living with a green card I was I was definitely understanding my role as a participant. But when you raise that right hand, it's at a whole

Yeah, so I look verbal commitments. It has always been the case that look what that's recruiting not older. We're mostly right, but but now it's different now it there's this sort of innate to this sort of inherent understanding that verbal commitments media meaning less so all of these guys and I think Michigan must have four or five I can't remember off the top of my head. Guys that have committed that haven't visited yet and I think that they are anticipating. All, schools should that the number of be committed. They'RE GONNA experienced. This year is going to be higher than ever before. Because if a kid commits you sight unseen. I think that you are. You're anticipating maybe one of the curious that you're dangling. Is You know a kid? Go ahead, commit to. You'RE GONNA. Be Able to visit other schools, and if you're saying that if you're selling that, you're also understanding that the likelihood that they might go somewhere else is higher, so you gotta be planning for that and I. Think Michigan is planning for by recruiting contingencies. I think they're loading up some of these. Anticipating that not all guys gonNA stick because they know that we're heading for a bananas Nana's fall when it comes to guys kind of flipping out of their commits. I'm as. Sam Webb is with us.

Lot going on, we'll know in love it, and you guys like we said You'd nimbly moved into an area that you can talk about with no sports going on right now. You're like okay. Let's talk about the future because this is where it's going. This is where it said all right so some crazy stuff happening in the world of sports and we definitely WANNA. Go for with you because it has nuts i. mean I don't know if you've followed Lenny Dykstra descent into hell. After US really. Yes I mean he wasn't he wasn't. He had like a whole gambling thing going on. At what point did I mean? He tried to do stocks he did, and he was like a stockbroker for a minute, wasn't he and he tried to do a magazine that was only a high end. Magazine would only be on private jets that athletes look. You know. Market for that and then one time he put an ad for a craigslist for made on craigslist, and she came over, and he was naked so. I'm not surprised about that with. Lenny dykstra right right. To get him to touch wally backman. So he has gone on in on another rant. Because what happened recently was that he filed an answer a defamation suit against Ron Darling which was crazy and the judge actually came back and said. We can't accept this suit. Because you have defamed your character so much that no one else can come in and defame it. Deacon meet. Do you understand how? To be? And I know you're laughing. well I've I've never heard of that before. CARE. No one can do more damage to you. You've done to yourself. Again out of your own way, but isn't it crazy? We're talking about Lenny Dykstra in. Yes, he was great. Yes, he actually did steroids and it was known to do that, but for people in Lenny dykstra circle when he grew up. And you see these kids when they're growing up, he was the probably the best player. Anybody has ever seen in his little league in his town in his the euro. Mean isn't that amazing that there are those kids sometimes can never sniff the field, and that the greatest that their town has ever seen no of A. He was one of those guys. You know we come from the same age bracket. He was one of those guys that was. He was a dog on the baseball field. Right? You know. He was just that Greeny Guy. He was that he was gonNA. Do that guy that was going to do whatever it took to what he's going to sacrifice his body. He was gonNA run into US going to try to run over the catcher at home play. Whatever a if you had a jump in the stance, he would do that. He was that guy that would just go that extra mile and I think that was an enduring quality to you. He has some skill to. He wasn't just a great guy. He has some talent, but you care to an and made a really endearing player to follow, but it was the thing that makes you know that makes him a rough person outside of baseball. It's kind of like watching the Jordan documentary which I'm sure you watch the last dance. But but the things that may Jordan unbelievable competitor when he was on the Bulls, you take that out, and he's in life right now. You say to yourself. Where are your friends? Michael,.

"Hey, guys welcome to the show as promised. We have great guests. Someone who we turn to a personally spams for his insights when it comes to recruiting. And somebody who we understand in a way understands the college football. Landscape and the mentality of the athletes that are entering the college game. That's part of why we wanted to have this guy on. Because it's not just from Michigan. He understands on a national scale. What kids and families and people are going through as they make a decision for college? And therefore he has sort of his finger on the pulse of what people are thinking. This is a very difficult moment that we're all trying to make our way through and come out on the other side. Be Brighter were grateful to have him here Sam Webb. How are you Sir Fellas? I'm doing great glad to. To be on man I'm excited. Let me just save first and foremost that we love you. I feel like people don't say that enough, but we love you man. We love what you do. We love how you treated us. Every time we've come on done your show I. Mean it's more than just we come in your show. It's after we get off the phone with you. When we listen to it, you spend the next five minutes talking about how you feel about us and go unnoticed, and that makes us feel great and just I. Feel like we need to say it more. We love you. Guys. The love is mutual I. Love You guys right back. Love what you do love that. She loved Michigan. That you represent Michigan low that you guys make me laugh all the time, and I love to laugh so that that's another. South of the guys I appreciate the opportunity to be on your show. We'll the love that we're talking to you now. Because I feel like okay, we're recording this on June. Third this will drop on June fifth, but between June first and June eighth was Kinda. This were Kinda getting down to this crunch time here as to what's going to happen with college football and I know you've talked about it a lot on your show, the Michigan insider. It's such a fascinating show. Let me take a step further and say you have very nimbly in very smartly. Development started doing an all recruiting podcast. Which? That is the one thing we can talk about right now is the future twenty, twenty, one, twenty, twenty, two, twenty, twenty three. That gets people excited. WHO KNOWS IF WE'RE GONNA? Play football this fall, but we know that we will have teams in the future. So what? What do you foresee is going to happen because in my brain? The SEC is GonNa do this. This no matter what lot for a lot of reasons, we get into it because there social reasons to I mean it's what we're dealing with right now and then. WHO's GonNa? Follow suit, and who does it hurt if we don't? It's the big ten says that we project our student athletes yeah, so I think that the it's trending towards playing college football nationwide. The prerequisites for it were. A downtrend in the number of cases I. Now we have still haven't seen the the level of downtrend that they talked about needing to see fourteen consecutive days. That kind of thing, but. Enough to wear their optimistic too optimistic enough to open things back up. I was one layer of the of the onion. The other layer was testing. Testing capacity. How how liberally could you test your team? And so it goes without saying that you need to be able to test players. Coaches and anyone that's involved contest. You need to test before every game, but that's not enough to really root out during a week. Where you have practice, you likely have players interacting with other people on campus. You know, can you? Can you rely on? You know not having a great deal of exposure during the week. If you are testing during the week so I, think they. They are they feel good enough to look ahead and say they can test a few times a week. We re looked into it and it sounds like testing about three times in a given week can can really account for you know anyone that might have the the virus during the weekend longer testing before games, you can play and so I think that's where it's trending. The one question I have is will they have some sort of a universal procedure or policy about how much you test what you do win. There's a positive test I think that's the next layer only conference to have A. L. Conference Wide Standard so buyers the pack twelve. And you think about it? It's GonNa have an impact. If we do way, you know players testing positive. You think about schools with elite quarterbacks. You think about the Trevor Lawrence's of the world. The Justin fields of this world, if by some chance you in a game, where say you know, Ohio? State is playing end state or you know if Justin fields is out and we don't. Don't know who the backup is. Not Person Isn't necessarily tested like the complexion of that game completely changes or Michigan, Burr, so high estate, obviously the full teams full strength, but if by some chance, some elite player on the team is out now it's a whole different ballgame. You GotTa make sure that you know you gotTa. Make sure it has not Ryan Day during the test. In, Ohio stay right. Play. A. Noble what you're talking about is right. You need an independent. This is what I believe about everything. This goes on. This goes in terms of the people who are investigating George Floyd. It can't come from someone who is with these people every day. If you have to walk down the hall and see Ryan Day and he gives you a nod, and you're like were okay, but it's not okay. That's not good. It's gotta come from an outside source in order to do this football's big business as you have mentioned many times on your show a Lotta. These athletic departments have built their. Very Shakily now we see their entire income on football. You don't have football. YEP, probables! Absolutely! I that's that's everything and you know I was. I was saying sort of tongue in cheek. But. But they they across college football. Came up with the standard when it came to a concussion protocol. Right? That's rare with the medical staff and be football staff are totally separate in a medical decisions. Don't root through the coaches, so it's as long as the convention is the same right. There's no reason to think that it won't be. Then I think you can, you can trust the integrity of of of the testing, and really who's who's the coach and the and the team. If you will to to make sure that you quarantine, whoever might be who might be positive because your whole team could be ravaged by UK. Catch it. You can spread. It's your family. I think the self interest involved in making sure. The tests are accurate, is kind of one of its checks in the system of checks and balances.

"Welcome viewed from the cheap seats. We have a sklar brothers an unbelievable show today our buddy, our good friend, our old friend Sam Webb from in Michigan. He does the Michigan insider. He's a writer and contributor and creator of the site, twenty four seven site, which is recruiting site. And he's now has a brand new podcast Michigan recruiting insider which is amazing now. He talks very specifically on all this stuff about Michigan Sports, but we have on the show today to really explore the issues of college recruiting during the pandemic, the transfer portal what means and how that has changed college recruiting social justice that coaches put forth in how that will affect in recruiting. He's just an amazing amazing discussion and some insight into the possibility of a college football season from what he's hearing from on the inside Before we get to that, let's stay in the world of football Let's talk about. A little hypocrisy that came out and that was definitely called out when Roger Goodell. Head of the NFL. When he made statements about people protesting in his acceptance of people protesting the George Floyd tragedy, which of course is what is on most of our minds right now aside from covid nineteen that is the lead story in all of our news feeds, and the fact that Goodell in his statement was able to. Allow people to express themselves and willing- willingness to be open to it. Okay. Yes, that's a positive thing, but let's rewind back to the Colin. Kaepernick moment when Colin. Kaepernick was ostracized and we've heard all the arguments on the other side. We have heard on everybody say well. He said this about Cuba, but he's disrespecting this that the other. Let's go back to a cabinet. Did Cabinet consulted with a navy seal? Said I WANNA. Do something that shows that I am not protest during the national anthem. I am just using this moment. Moment during the national anthem to raise awareness all, he ever said to raise awareness to the mistreatment of black people by police officers in the United States and here we are okay, so I'm GonNa read you what the NFL. What Roger Goodell set in this is in a tweet that the NFL from their officials is the NFL. Family is greatly saddened by the tragic events and cross our country. The protesters reaction these incidents reflect the pain, anger and frustration that so many of us feel. You didn't feel it back when cabinet was. Our deepest condolences to the family of Mr George Floyd. Those who've lost loved ones including the families. Brianna Taylor in Louisville Mr Ahmad. Are Brie and the cousin of Tracy Walker who is accustomed tracy walk of the Detroit Lions as current events dramatically underscore day there remains much more to do as a country as league. These tragedies informed the NFL's commitment to our on In our ongoing effort, their main urgent need for action, we recognize the however platform in the communities and the part. We recognize the power of our platform. Think about that Jay. In communities, and as part of the fabric of American society, we embrace that responsibility do you in are committed to continuing the important work to address all these systemic issues together with our players, our clubs and our partners? You make forty four million dollars a year. You have an opportunity to tell your owners. Shut up and let these let these players peacefully protest. What's going on? You have the ability to stand up and deliver the message. These guys aren't protesting national the American flag what they're protesting something different. They love our country, and they are protesting something different than WanNa see a change and they're doing it nonviolently. They're not looting. They're not breaking into stores. They're getting down on one knee to say look. Something needs to change. He could have sent that message and he can still send that message. He can allow those players right now because what had ad rock. Rock. Say in the Beastie boys documentary. It went talking about how when he was when he was younger, and he said all those things about women that he is now was now disgraced that he said that his like. Thank God I'm I'm not a you know. Thank God I'm being called a hypocrite. Thank God I'm being called a hypocrite. Because a hypocrites someone who can change and I need to change because it would be bad if you're saying that. He hasn't changed at all and I. think that that visit is a real opportunity now out the NFL. You know. I, think if the NFL wanted to make strides, they could simply come out and say Colin Kaepernick. We're sorry we're sorry we didn't stand with you. We are sorry we that we didn't understand quite fully the full scope that's on us and moving forward. We're going to try to a better job. Simple statement. It got new power. Adam silver of the NBA would do that. That young NBA, smaller more nimble, but I'm telling you. Adam silver would do that. The NFL cannot do that because of their ownership and a certain faction of leaders all right. We have a great interview. I don't WanNa go too long because we have a fantastic interview with Sam Webb, we get his quick hits about Australian rugby announcers who are basically do the worst crowd. Apt To put faces on a cardboard characters out. There ever will talk about the Marquette.

Any emptying hole that will relieve it. Who appreciates my sufferings? Who do I suffer for? And that right. There is an excerpt from a book. That is called fields of fire, and it was written after the Vietnam war by marine who served there. In this book paints a picture of of combat, and in fact, it actually does more than that. Because picture. No pictures supposed to paint a thousand words or say a thousand words, but pictures, don't always properly convey thoughts and emotions. You need words to make that happen. And this book really captures all of it horror fear disgust love hate indifference. The chaos of combat the sorrow of loss hero ISM. And of course in all that human nature. And. As I always say about this podcast while yes, it is about war. It's about leadership, and it's about atrocities, and it's about struggle. It is most importantly, it's about human nature. And on top of that the incredible power of the human will. And this book fields of fire gives us a very close examination of human nature in all of its glory. In of course, in hall of its horror as well. And the book was written by a man by the name of James Webb who was a marine officer in Vietnam. Recipient of the navy cross. Former secretary of the navy former Senator from the great state of Virginia. He's written a bunch of other books. Ten I believe. He's written and produced movies all kinds of stuff on top of that. He has five children from correct one of those children. Jim also served in the Marine Corps and who's actually. Whose time in Ramadi overlapped with my time in Ramadi where he served as a as oath three eleven rifleman as a member of the one six marines. And also as a radioman in Stapleton. So. It's awesome to read these books and know their history. And it's even more awesome. And an absolute honor to have with us here today, the author of the book fields of fire. And also his son. So, sir. Thank you for coming. Jim. Thank you for coming. Thank you. Thank you. Having us. I was kinda wondering because you, you know, James, and Jim and I decided when I was trying to figure out what to call you guys. I figured I'd call you young, Jim, Jim, and I just keep calling you, sir. Mccall easier. So yeah, I can't thank you guys enough for for coming for coming all the way out here from the east coast and to come on this and for me to revisit feel to fire which is just a a a book, and we'll get into that a little bit later. It's an iconic book about not just the Vietnam war, but really about war, and and the the wave laid it out, and again, we'll we'll get into that a little bit. But I also wanted to talk to you. And and really get some of your back story as well. And your upbringing we always try and start with the guests kind of talking about where they came from. And what their background was. And you have a lot of that actually laid out in your memoir. So I was gonna ask if it's cool to call this a memoir, but there says it on the cover a memoir, I heard my country calling. And I guess I what one little section of this that that stuck out at me. And I think you know, obviously, let you expand on it. But I'm going to the books again this book is called. I heard my country calling. And here we go back to the book when it hurts just grit your teeth and take it. Don't don't you ever back down. Never start a fight. But if somebody else does never run away if you run from a bully, you will never stop running. But if you fight he won't risk coming back at you again, stand up fight back. Mark him..

"So yeah yarikhanov kinda was a shakedown a series attest we learned a lot from that to to really kind of reduced risk um change our plans of operations and um and just to improve our system reliability and stuff like that so it really helpful say you can't put this sort of i guess quote pretend um james webb inside to see our a list let's see how this reacts and get ready for the real james webb bakara like he said chamber a was not designed to testings web is designed for for human missions and they put human um human a vehicles in there i think the lunar module and stuff like that right they actually tested censure be yeah and she degenerated said the service command module's at all yeah but skylab was in chamber a as well oh oh can dumb um and then of course it's continued its use for just a development of shuttle and space station and stuff like that in terms of more were hardware than human i'll gay yes tensing so but you know whatever unita large thermal vacuum chamber it's one of the very few that that exists so if hungary asset for for nasa that something like that see started gearing up four james webb testing in 2014 you said sawyer was on so we we had to modify the chamber quite a bit in the end years for that word two thousand nine through about 2012 i actually replaced the pumping systems especially the high backing systems because all of them were idle oil type of cyst oil within i'm or an oil pumping system and everything we can have any type of uh oils around james webb has everything went to like real clean newer technologies um or thermal systems used to only kinda get to about one hundred calvin and we needed he be able to get to about fifteen kelvin and then of course we ended up this testing at twenty calvin for james webb but still we wanted to be able to kind of exceed that requirement to read it uh so 15 was kind of where we thought we'd need to three had to put a different trout in that a and.

"Actually so it's flying to los angeles and will be at the north of bremen a facility at r in redondo beach south of la ex uh work is integrated with the the sunshield and the spacecraft bus so the unison sunshield been you know one of the huge parts of the the telescope in a fouryearlong most important parts and uh so it it has a series of testing once it's fully integrated mostly deployments by and mccoo stick testing all right we'll fantastic that's why i think you're the perfect person to have here since you've been you've been here working with james webb spell it space telescope for quite some time now so you kinda have a good sense of not only the testing by a little bit more about just what is this telescope away what is it going to do so i'm kinda wanted discounted dive into that just the whole overview of what is the james webb space telescope so let's start with that what is it okay so you know james webb is uh it is a kind of a general purpose sign hence tool uh it is a part of the next generation of vom great observatories nasr's working on so we think of like the hubble hubbell was probably the the biggest known great observatory in its generation so yeah like you know yet sean drug cobble spitzer and i think a few other ones that were you know smaller but hubbell was the big one yeah and uh that's kind of nasr's plan for you know the science abs mission and some of their observations and james webb is that big big observatory so it is not a replacement for hobble but a successor okay so so from what i know about the telescopes in i'm definitely not a scientist or physicist are everything so this is kind of like hubble re can read things in the visual spectrum and then chandra is more can x ray and spitzer is more infrared did i mix those up no you're absolutely correct very good yeah so then web.

"Dubbed the naked scientists podcast is produced in association with spitfire costeffective voice internet and ip engineering services for uk businesses find out how spitfire can empower your company at spitfire dot coderch uk you're listening to the naked scientists and for the next part of the program we're going to be exploring masses largest and lightest telescope now you may be familiar with the hubble space telescope which has launched in 1990 orbiting the earth it has detected newmains around pluto taken breathtaking images of early galaxies and allowed scientists to pin down the age of our universe but knowing the age of all universe isn't enough astronomers want to be able to see this very beginning with the successor to hobble the james webb space telescope thrive uh i workable for a long time hubbell when it was launched rewrote the astronomy books and james webs going to rewrite american power the sun changes affect the size of a tennis court and that has to be unfolded in space it's mirror is seven times the collecting area of public you could put seven hubbell optics in the same you know surface areas the where this thing i spent twenty years lacking honestly to be strapped on invade the rock from peacefully by it up into the sky a little bit hacking tipping abide one picture the biggest telescope dish that technology can make next to wit a sun shield the size of a tennis court now imagine folding them up like origami into a rocket m blasting them one million miles into space this enormous engineering challenge is exactly what astronomers all across the boat a facing as the james webb space telescope undergoes its final tests ahead of launch and its aims a just as ambitious as its engineering we want to go back and look the verb beginnings of the universe not as nasty spill eggs he's the project manager of james webb overseeing every step of the telescopes mission from design development and terrestrial testing right three two on all of its operations.

"Out to the first galaxies to the cosmic webb at the largestscale that we have today and the level that the simulation can now predict what the universe looks like it's just amazing and what so cool about these is watching how they've changed over time trying to understand how you go from an essentially smooth distribution of matter in the dark ages of the universe to having the completely lumpy bumpy swiss cheese of modern day cosmology requires getting all sorts of different things interacting from figuring out how does different dark matter interactor not interact how does the temperature the velocity of the particles right after the qasem i quit background has released affect things you have to factor in all of these different affects and it's difficult so we talk about how many particles there are we talk about is it gas is it all these different ways of approximating things and we've gone from basically a thousand by 1000 particle cube two million by a million to ever ever larger simulations spanning more fine grain periods of time so it's no longer this seed represents what will become a galaxy to it's this seed represents a star cluster to this represents a star and we can see the universe inner simulations turned on light up collapsed down and evolve into what we say yeah the people through pocket hesitancy of but i was sort of putting up videos from this a lustrous simulation showing what dosing relations look like it it's just it's so impressive just to see how well and how detail that out.
