Embracing sexuality as a person of faith with Pastor Alex Pittaway

"We're joined by alex piece away. Who is a gay passer from. He's been alex welcome. Thanks so much. I wanna ask you now. You are a reverend. what do we call you. Is it like the queen. Reverend i after all look just postures just alex titles such ranks so called. Alex lit for the lord. Sure what god one bless you. I've never heard that you discover the podcast through gay christian bible study. I think there has to be the first time anyone had about the gays revolting through a christian bible. Study that you know of in a positive It was actually It was the first month that i moved to brisbane and someone who's a really great Sort of leader in our church. He was running a group. A bible study for gay christians and he affectionately called homo group and he invited me along one night because a lot of people in my church go there. And so we We're looking at a pace of scripture which talks about being counter cultural as a reference point. It was this podcast And people were discussing. What gaza garage in the vein of being sort of counter cultural. And they're sort of version of counter. Cultural will being counter cultural by being quia by being gay by being lgbt. I and Being christian being spiritual at the same time And so yeah it was. it was through here that That i i had it Gosh that would have been way back in two thousand eighteen. I think july august. And how long have we been doing show by we've shed a lot of biblical moments on. It's not a surprise to me that they might be studying your trips to wait on. Wellington dotting the alex. You're the possible for church. Made up mostly of lgbt on people who've been rejected from mainstream churches yes so Mcc has been around in brisbane for forty five years And you know we've been cold at the church For gay people We've been cold especially during the eighties and nineties. The the church that has aids We have an aids quilt by sydney congregation in brisbane congregation. And for a while we were the only people who would do funerals for people who died of aids in nineteen eighty s and ninety s And we lost about one third of all of pastas globally. hiv aids. Yes so we're very much a church run by the people. It's called dumb. If you're a church history node like me then Congregational model of church. Which means that the church decides the pasta is the church decides what direction even what beliefs the church has is very much a grassroots organization. And it's not so much sort of top heavy pasta decides everything Organizations is much more much more grassroots than that overall. Unfortunately in australia the landscape spiritually is very very tough for gay people. I think melbourne is probably the most a gay affirming city in terms of church. Wise there are just many many more gay affirming congregations. When i say affirming it means you don't just have to sit at the back and we'll take your money but don't you think that you can get married or anything else. It's people know we will do your marriage. We will Support your relationships we. We're not trying to secretly ten. You straight we don't think you're going to hell. And we fully welcome you. So there's many of those In melbourne including mcc melbourne including several anglican churches several uniting churches in sydney. This probably about five or six in brisbane. There's just three out of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of churches. And it's it's sad because you know in america despite america being a much more conservative place in indianapolis the city that i studied in to be a pasta. There are something like thirty five. Well affirming churches

President-elect Joe Biden declares "clear victory" and calls for unity

"After a cliffhanger vote count, Mr Biden is projected to have won the states of Pennsylvania and Nevada, taking him over the crucial threshold of 270 electoral college votes. President elect up to the stage a few hours ago to officially declare victory in front of a crowd in his hometown of Wellington, Delaware. The people of this nation have spoken. They've delivered us a clear victory. A convincing victory. Victory. For we, the people Way one with the most votes ever cast from presidential ticket in the nation. Joe Biden has said he wants to restore the soul of the United States and Americans needed to stop treating their political opponents as enemies call for unity was echoed by the vice president elect Kamila Harris. You chose hope. And unity, decency, Science and, yes, truth you chose Joe Biden as the next president. And Joe is a healer, a uniter, a tested and steady hand. One person who knows Joe Biden well as Amy Pope. She worked alongside him for a number of years. In her former role, is US deputy Homeland security adviser to President Obama. She's now an associate fellow at the think tank Chatham house and she joins me now. Amy, What kind of President Will Joe Biden B? How will he differ from the last Democratic party President Barack Obama. Joe Biden is really a kind of Washington expert, Hey, has a long history in the Senate. He knows many, many, many of the key political influencers and legislators in Washington and he's the kind of person who just has gotten to know them and build relationships with them on And for that reason, I think he's coming in at the right time in terms of trying to build relationships across the island and get something done. Do you think that he really is going to be able T turn that to his advantage? It just seems that there's so much animosity in US politics right now. I think it's going to be tough. And I think even for someone like Mitch McConnell, with whom who's the Senate majority leader with whom the president elect has a strong relationship, there will be pressures on him not to find common ground and not to cooperate. But on the flip side, there are a lot of Americans who are looking for Congress and the president to work together. Who are looking for some level of functioning capacity within Washington. They'll feel that pressure to it's hard to see how this will play out, and it'll depend frankly, about what the voters were saying to their members. Amy, I'm going to bring my guests in

NZ election: why voters chose 'health over wealth'

"Into mania in. New Zealand. Tonight. New Zealand has shown the Labor Party, its greatest support and at least fifty years. End For that. I only had two simple words. Thank you. Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch. What happens if New Zealand does not sort ad its economic challenges quickly. trans-tasman cousins could I become fouled state? All of the heart, which is executive director of the new. Zealand initiative and Josie. PAGARINI is the executive director of the Council for International Development both a based in Wellington all of Josie welcome to. Radio National. Hello Tom. JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.

You'll understand this I grew up in Oklahoma and kind of went far far far far far away and And that's become more important to me in these recent years that you know that he and and then our studios in Minneapolis has been for a long time and. I've thought across the years about how the show might have been served by being on one of the coasts and. And in these last few years since two thousand sixteen. I'm I'm so glad we're in the middle of the country you know. It's Really important in life giving. So. Good Yeah So, you were the child of a Foreign Service officer.

Drive to all souls UNITARIAN church in Washington DC very important to my father especially and I didn't feel particularly religious. At that point and. But if I look back on it what. the influence of that was is that. There's An important part of one's self to express and to learn to develop and that. For. UNITARIAN inside the message I took away is that it's very big world and we have to learn to. get to know and. Empathize with. People in radically different cultures and that that's a good thing to live in a big world. I think by the time I was. Sixteen. I had that message, but I felt something missing. And I got interested in quakers who? Be Much. More. Okay Gang. So what are we going to do about it? You know view terriers were very talky. Talkers talk talk of the thinkers looked like they were kind of. interesting. They were doers, and so I would say. That that.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music

"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

Is It a Good Time to Start a Marketing Agency

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're gonNA. Talk about if it's a good time to start a marketing agency so right now just to give context for everyone we're in the middle of covert, and we are in the middle of riots and protests right now the united. States at least so you have a lot going on, so neil I'll go to you I. Do you think it's a good time? Why or why not? So whether? It's a bad economy? Good economy, a recession, or there's things that you. You can't control. It's life i. do believe overtime things do go back to normal. You know specifically I'm talking about things I it. Where eventually go away so I believe anytime is a good time to start a business. As long as you think you can provide value critic product, critic, good service, you know even though there's a lot of people who aren't spending money. There always is other people who are spending money. Can you get to make an you generate sales to neal's point? There's people that are doing really well right now. There's people that have been. been absolutely crushed. The people that are doing well right now are spending while I'll give you an example. You know if you're running a of streaming business right now. You're probably doing better right now. If you're doing online education, you're probably doing better right now. Depending on what you sell, if you're P, you're probably doing better right now. So all that to say is at a time where the biggest agencies in the World Command, the largest budgets, big contracts, and all that a lot of people that are working with these large agencies they don't necessarily want to. To! Pay those dollars anymore. They want an opportunity to work with smaller shops. And this is your opportunity to to prove yourself, and if you're willing to craft a really good offer and get your foot in the door where you're not necessarily going to charge a lot of money up front, but you're GonNa get all these. You know smaller deals with larger companies. When you know, they can pay a lot later. You establish that relationship you take advantage of the Times right now, 'cause. They're also looking to shop for a deal. So you know, here's your chance. and. You Know Eric I know you deal with a lot of agencies in your agency accelerated permanent. Lot of them are starting up right now in trying to grow. What are you seeing? Are People doing well right now or they struggling right now and mentioned that there's always people spending money, but what of the results people are getting right now? Okay, so that's what I was amazed all these people. People that are willing to pay for the agency accelerator program right now looking. They're looking to grow because our businesses are thriving, so we had this one individual. He's based in the UK and they focused on smaller businesses side five clients last week. They just make a couple of tweaks. Another growing faster and then there's people that are looking to to that are looking to make a change in. In their business, because one person was focused on hospitality, and that's been totally decimated, but he's changing his business model right now and all of a sudden he's. He's getting more clients so I would say the people that were working with right now is it's maybe not the best apples is because these are people that are doing well. That are investing in this. So that's the caveat I say but. But they are looking to be aggressive, and they are looking to grow, and they do see a lot of people reaching out to them for different various services that that they have I. Think again. Going back to the point is during a downturn right now. I think it's a perfect time to start a business. It's a perfect time to learn and make mistakes where it's not going to be. A big issue. If you make these mistakes, put it that way so. Now for the people because they're probably are people that you've seen. I don't know as many agencies as you, but you've probably seen. People also drop in revenue due to Kobe I know we have and we lost clients lost a lot of stuff that wouldn't have happened if covid wasn't around, you know even though people are losing revenue right now. How are you seeing agency? Survive right now in. What are you seeing them due to grow right now this environment. Yeah, so they're changing up their offering, so for example anybody that has an events type of agency. They've switched over the virtual, and it's not the same original revenue that they had before because live events. You make a lot more because they cost a lot more, but at least they can recover some revenue and name of the game with businesses to survive. They need to survive and need to be able to hold through this and you know they'll be good to go other people I can tell you some are. Are pivoting into product services like a lower tier. Maybe it's not the original pricing been finding a lot of people are actually taking them up on it, so I think this really applies for business across the board I. Think if you are adaptable and you can make changes quickly. You don't just sit there I think you're going to be fine at the end of the day, but if you complain about it and you blame people I near. You're out there. Doing stupid things than you're GONNA be in trouble. And then, if you yourself were to credit agency right now, and you didn't have your brand your traffic. What would you do to get going and generate your first client if not your first three clients? Yeah. I mean I've done this before us. I'll go right back to that in a second, but I do want to say to everyone. There's a tool out there called startup runway dot io, so depending on what size your at right now if you have a couple employs a couple contractors I. I do think it's really important freedom map out a three scenarios, so if you are able to remain flat suit money revenue drops, or if you dropped twenty five percent, and if you draw fifty percent, it's GonNa. Show you how many months of runway you have left, and that runway is basically going to guide you and that's going to help. Spur you tack Shen or spirit you into action so to your question Neil. If I were starting out today and turn it back over to you. I know Brad. Nobody knows why I'm back in the day. When I first started, I was worthy attention was so I knew a lot of people were hanging on on asking Seo. Questions I think to saturated now, but now the question have to ask yourself is where all these people hanging out now. If I know my target market is hanging out on link, okay, can I make link did reach out to these people Lincoln. If they're hanging out on, you know in other areas like facebook groups. That I'M GONNA go over there, so I'm going to. To Go to where the attention is, I am going to be posting content at the same time. What happens is even right now with Lincoln. When people engage with me, I look at all the titles that engaged with me, and sometimes my team has access Wellington dill. Look at the titles as well and they'll be okay. This guy looks I might want to work with. I'm going to add him and I'm going to engage with him, and then that way you end up building relationship, and that's a really good way to build your client list so. Go any final words will turn over to you. What would you do I? Would go pick a niche I would then go and go to crunch base with for all the funded companies within the niche had a breakdown everything that they're doing wrong and tell them how they can fix it and breakdown step-by-step in hopes that some of them hire me because they could just in theory, they're venture funded. They needed to get results faster. So why wouldn't they pay me?

Hey all I'm eve and welcome to this day in history, Class A podcast that flips through the book of history and tears out a single page every day. Today is June seventeenth twenty twenty. The Day was June seventeenth. Eighteenth forty-three. A clash between British emigrants and Mary known as the wire incident took place on the South Island in New Zealand. It was the first major armed conflict between Maori and British immigrants after the signing of the Treaty of Tonky. The new. Zealand company was a British. Joint Stock Company responsible for the colonization of New Zealand in the eighteen hundreds. It's and director Edward Gibbon. Wakefield believed that a successful colony needed to attract a balance of capitalist laborers. The company claimed to have purchased land in the Cook Strait, read and established settlements at Wellington and Nelson. While the Europeans were purchasing land in New Zealand representatives of the British Crown and Mary, Chiefs signed the Treaty of White Tonky. In May of Eighteen, Forty Lieutenant Governor William Hobson declared British authority over New Zealand. Since the Treaty of Weitang, he was signed. There has been debate over its terms, interpretations and differences between the Mary text and the text. The treaty was meant to recognize Mary ownership of their lands and give Mary people, the rights of British subjects that said many Maori were later dispossessed of their lands. Anyway the New Zealand Company promoted the country as a Briton of the south, and it began to organize large scale migration to New Zealand. But the fertile land required for all the Europeans migrating to New Zealand, did not actually exist. The company was failing. Because arable land was limited land titles were uncertain. There were two mini absentee landowners, and there was no real way to generate income through exports. By eighteen forty three, the immigrants were struggling with food supply, and the company was basically bankrupt. Throughout the early eighteen s more European, emigrants Nelson despite conflict between Mary chiefs over claims to the land being sold. But when it became clear that there was not enough arable land around Nelson for the immigrants, the company began moving forward with plans to survey the wire planes. MARY TEVES NOT TOWA TEI row per ah-ha and others were adamant that the company had not purchased this land. Despite this opposition, the company ordered survey parties to begin work in the UAE Ravelli. So, some of the chiefs.

They were armed but inexperienced. On, June seventeenth eighteen, forty three, the company party arrived on the eastern side of the to a marina stream. Mari gathered on the other side of the Stream. It's unclear exactly what triggered the fighting? Though some are accounts, say that a wife may have died I from a stray shot, regardless of fight ensued and twenty two Europeans, and somewhere between four and nine Mary died.

The membership of his arm mural taskforce an the time I thought wow that's really significant and then we also saw the same thing happened more recently with the folks are afraid packing. Here's what happened about. Two months ago. Councillors decided to make hacking free for Wellingtonians because of carbon nineteen but an April on his earn council meeting. They publicly debated and voted on whether to go back to charging uses fully for three me. Were in favour. They wanted to use the money from cowpox to put into a community grant. But Me Andy. Foster was not on board. The whole idea of doing this was to try and encourage people to come into the city when there was very little to draw them in businesses and when it was really struggling now clearly. When you're in a situation where little three business will not be mealy? Struggling Meister won't be happening at all because mice will not be allowed to have him and that's why I think it's too early in the end. The meal was outvoted. Ten to five thinking had been the water. I wasn't a really to face as characterized by some rather more sign. So Do you feel like there? Is this group of counselors who I just focused on shooting down Andy Foster ideas. Nor I don't think this we shouldn't mistake the question for penis beans the day. I think every politician around that council tai-bo has the harsh in the right place. I think it's also really important. Her when tat? It's not like this clashes has grounds to work of council to a halt base counselors on stopping programs. They just kind of putting his stamp. I mean that the council is still functioning at sued hunting divided. But I don't think you like his. It stopped working decision to still be made. I mean certainly as a problem with the division in terms of how it's playing out in such a public seeing at Harbour Road Mia Mesa by head start today in seat F accounts. The doesn't agreed with something. Well his hoping with something I would exceed. The counselor succumbs May and we can't compromise and being more of a united front council may shanks aims. I think he doesn't seem to be a lot of hitting Wellington City Council and I think that the missing piece here is a game with latest. Ship Andy Denise to find common ground among his counselors you know. It just doesn't look right when things haven't been worked out by the time you get to accounts only thing and Andy Foster is just a varsity down. This is particularly problematic. Encountered contain win the public as really expecting leadership and unity because at suction uncertain time and so. I think the problems of divided council had sort of being elevated five clients that we I'm again. It doesn't help that. Wellington city councillors. I having their own squabbles. Heaven Listen To this Council Meeting Windsor Counsellor Timothy. Paul brings up business. Related Amendments to council plans which councilor Diane Calvet response to like. This councils being business never worked with the businesses of the city doesn't sit well with pre one as this is Diane. I haven't Council can cancel tragically. That is not a point of order you not at sadly sadly unfortunately as standing do not prevent people telling Saying things which are not the advocates. Lose jumping his well. Let's rent presumes. Manas point misrepresentation and I did cheek that today with officers. Misrepresentation of something in the meeting is a point of order. That's a misrepresentation Of May and look. I understand what you're saying. I sympathize what you're saying that it doesn't make it a point of order offensive if you wanted to can i? Can I tell me because I don't think it's going to be complaining? We're talking about other people's experience actually what everyone has done in the what I'm council. What if you can just Me To through all that comment with that make it a bit easier. I Lions Council. Paul goes on facebook and complains about Council Talbot publicly bullying. To which Calvin FIS back with a full moon? Complaint ABOUT THE POST. You know you sort of got that as as lodged Applying House I think the public attack you want to say at that stuff going on windy. Such big assures for the council to be grappling with and of course any foster colden a facilitator to sort of help him deal with Sir. Andy Foster certainly. I think has signaled this. There'a between the council is that nature to out and then on top of all that a man. The neighboring town of competency has publicly told off the council for fighting. Running into council is the economic coach. Who engine room for the region so they need to get their act together for aside differences. Yeah that was an interesting apply for Kager in Iceland in front hijab too but I can certainly understand for council across the region are Wellington City is seen as you know the hub. The big engine aims from outside is to speak to those me as an counselors seem to be feeling a little bit uneasy about you know. They signed stars in sparkling and the whole mix fray about the council division when I think the Bridgeton to navigate recovered nine chain really needs to work to give end of the big hub of that region. A sort of watching amongst themselves. Yeah it's it's not a good look when we spoke to you last year. Just after Andy Foster lixion you know you see. People had voted for not necessarily four Andy Foster but they voted for change because they wanted progress. Why did they want change in? Do you think they've got it? Yeah I think this is actually one of the problems. Set Andy False. To has in my opinion he wasn't elite. Tips are knocks on his politics but rather because he wasn't Justin Minister. Wellington his sort of pet years is Oscar chests. Progress things stools old are moving was announced and justice system. I think that the public was still unsatisfied Not going to try someone else. It's sort of hard to say with or not wellingtonians getting the change that they wanted. Because you know I suppose. Eighty foster hasn't really hit a a theocratic because of the carpet. Mind chain yet but I think having a divided council saint smuggling among themselves. Singley not the change. They wanted either. So how would you in your opinion? Right Andy Fosters term. So far as I think Andy Foster is struggling. Sir Well Filler. Sida has come in. He's also got a new chief of staff coming in. Stand it that chief of staff has on someone in. Mind Bay his major Liza. Maybe this is an opportunity for him to sort of like you know to be fears to. Andy am the problems with the the worst Messes circles together a now covered by contain. You know that's anybody's late ship backs I think there there is and what does this do for public confidence. Well Council McLean Young for example. I'm is very concerned that the council was not delivering for Wellingtonians as it showed because of this division and I think absolutely it. Thanks the public confidence in your abilities.

He doesn't have made your adviser at the moment are in Hazel oversee. Very busy SAR. It's sort of difficult. Kiki the story for example. I'm in for Hunter. Control the narrative of those stories which doesn't help his case in the eye of the public. But Yeah I think absolutely the council and full his confidence building to Tudor.

Yeah I think there's I'm quite a few parallels to be drawn between this issue without water infrastructure and the for fe that's right the bus tests trophy when the bus system was controversially of hold. When we spoke to Georgina Campbell just seven months ago. That was one of the biggest gripes for the capital communities with grappling with light buses and overcrowding.

"Hello were nerds. Welcome to another episode of the podcast called the dictionary. How're you doing? I hope you are doing wonderfully. They've got nothing to say. Except the first word is beef. Wellington beef and then the second word is Wellington with a capital B. This is a noun from nineteen thirty. A fillet of beef. Or is it a fill it? I've heard both I think it depends on the spelling. This is F. I L. L. E. T. but I'm going to say a fillet of beef covered with pay day Foie gras and baked in a casing of pastry. And this is probably from the name. Willington will whose name Wellington is at first name. Last name was there. Somebody named Wellington who made this thing and then somehow they got this named after them. I want something named after me next. We have beef would all one word Noun from eighteen o five one the hard heavy reddish would of any of various chiefly Australian trees number two. We have these synonym Australian. Pine next is be. It is an adjective from seventeen. Forty three one a heavily and powerfully built as in a beefy thug. One be synonyms are substantial and sturdy as in beefy shock absorbers number two To a of or suggesting beef as in a beefy flavor to be full of beef as in a beefy steak next we have Beehive Noun from the fourteenth century. One we just have the number one definition for the word hive number to something resembling a hive for bees as to a a scene of crowded activity. Well you don't find many of those these days if you are listening to this during our quarantine time in two thousand twenty you could also be listening to this fifteen years in the future after I finished this whole thing. In which case welcome to the past. How's the future weird? Probably cool to be a woman's Hairdo that is conical in shape. Beehive is also an adjective next. We have beehive oven two words Noun from eighteen. Seventy two and arched oven used especially for baking food and formerly for coking coal. Not Cooking cocaine with one. Oh next is be keeper known from Seventeen. Eighty three person who raises? Bees and beekeeping is a noun next is B. Line one word and it is the I form. It is a noun from eighteen thirty a straight direct course and this is from the belief that Nectar Laden bees return to their hives in a direct line. That's pretty interesting I like I like seeing etymology. That is so specific that whether or not it's true I don't know but you'd think it would be. You'd think that A. B. Would want to make as direct align as possible back to its hive if it's got nectar it wants to get it back to the HIVE Queen and for the babies for food and all that all right now we have the second form of Beeline. It is a an inch transitive. Verb from eighteen eighty two to go quickly in a straight direct course next is B. Elza Bob so the pronunciation the spelling don't totally make sense to me. Although it does look like one of the correct pronunciation is bells a bob or bills above which makes more sense. It is capital B. E. L. Z. E. B. You be so you could say B. L. Shabib AB- or bells above it is a noun from before the twelfth century number. One we just have these synonym devil number. Two a fallen angel in Milton's Paradise lost ranking next to Satan. So they're not the same person they're different people okay. This is from be Elza. Bub which is the prince looking at the etymology. Now the Prince of devils from the Latin word I guess Burrell's above from the Greek word Burrell's a Boob B o u from the Hebrew bar. I'll zebra hub. Oh do I want to spell it? Okay be a apostrophe a L. Next Word Z. E. B. H. U. B. H. And that is a Philistine. God literally Lord of the flies Interesting next we have been B. E. N. it is it is the past participle of the word. B. B. E. next is beep. It is the I form. It is a verb from one thousand nine hundred thirty six to cause as horn to sound and the in transitive definition says olders two of them number one to sound a horn and number two to make a beep and I love the road. Runner goes made me sort of not a beep but it still beep next. We have the second form of beep. It is a noun from nineteen forty three. A short usually high pitched sound as from a horn or an electronic device that serves as a signal or warning next is beeper all you young kids today. Probably don't know to beeper is its a noun from nineteen seventy and they synonym is pager. Well does that help not particularly unless we go to the word the word pager. But we're not GONNA do that today but specifically one that beeps oh a specifically a pager that beeps next. We have the word beer. Many people's favourite word ever probably maybe it is a noun from before the twelfth century. It is an old word number one. An alcoholic beverage usually made from malted cereal grain as barley flavoured with hops any brewed by slow fermentation. I'm not a big beer fan. I like the sweeter things as I think mentioned before but I especially don't like hops. It's the bitterness is the thing that does not sit well with my taste. Buds and my brain number two a carbonated non alcoholic or a fermented slightly alcoholic beverage with flavoring from roots or other plant parts as in Beer. No Birch Beer. I mixed up the words and then I think related to that would be root beer which I love. Because it's sweet. Now we have number three fermented mash and number four a drink of beer so this is middle. English from the word bear or beer with only one e from the old English. Be Your which is b. e. r. and it is akin to the old. High German Beer B. I. O. R. Which means beer next is a fun one beer and skittles. It is three separate words just like it sounds Noun from eighteen fifty-five a situation agreeable ease as in won't be all beer and skittles. It does not tell me but I really really really want to look at the etymology of this because beer and skittles don't typically go together in my brain so I want to know why that happened. How did this become a thing a phrase beer and skittles but I might have to start using that next? Is Beer belly? Two Words Noun from eighteen twenty nine we have the synonym pot belly and then beer bellied with a hyphen. Is An adjective? Next is beer goggles. Two words now from nineteen eighty-seven the effects of alcohol thought of metaphorically as a pair of goggles that alter a person's perceptions especially by making other others appear more attractive than they actually are. I think many many people have fun fun stories of having beer goggles. And not being fully aware of what's going on next is beer pong noun from nineteen seventy-two a game in which a set of beer containing cups is placed at two ends of a table and in which a player scores by bouncing or tossing a ping pong ball into an opponent's cup from which the opponent then has to drink a beer. I love that. There is a very standard sterile definition of beer pong which is all about just getting drunk wasted in a very fun way. I I mentioned. I'm not a beer fan but I played beer pong. I was willing to drink a little bit. Just because I love games I'd Love Ping Pong and the idea of just trying to throw a ping pong ball into a cup is just a fun challenge And so I have played that once or twice and I thought I had something else but I don't know I also think it's funny that this has become such a normal thing not only. Is it in the dictionary? But there's there are APPA games for beer pong and it's it's just become a very big thing around America and probably the world too. It's not this thing that only college kids play all right next. We have beer e adjective from seventeen sixty four and. I just think it's funny that there are extra forms beer and Berry Est. That beer is beer beer even though that beer is pretty berry but that beer over there. It's the bureau August number one affected or caused by beer as in berry voices number two smelling or tasting of beer as in Berry Tavern. Next we have bee's knees B. E. Apostrophe S. second word knees Noun from one thousand nine hundred eighty one a highly admired person or thing and a synonym is. Cat's meow something that. Is You know if you if you were not using those phrases back in the day or if you're not familiar with them having that synonym isn't really going to help you. But that's what they are a highly admired person or thing and last for this episode and this might know it does not go onto the next page. It is be sting's B. E. S. T. I N. G. S. and it looks like it could also be spelled with a b a okay. This is a noun from before the twelfth century and it says the colostrum especially of a cow. So it's not be sting's it's bee stings interesting and this is reminded me of the we came across this word the one with the BA spelling. And I said Oh it looks and sounds like be stings. But it's not but then I said it was And I can't find it that's okay. The etymology says this is from bee sting. B. E. S. t. y. n. g. e. from old English by Sting B. Y. And then the word sting from be oast which means beatings akin to the old high German. Be oast which is bee stings. What is the colostrum of cow or especially of a cow? I don't know we'll get to that in the seas so my favorite word from this episode has got to be beer and skittles. Which again is a situation of agreeable es thank you very much for listening Maybe I should tell you another podcast. I'm listening to just because I like giving them more exposure if it's something that people haven't heard and I don't remember where I left off so I'm going to just say star talk radio with Neil degrasse Tyson.

"I'll have to do the conversion on that say I know that zero degree. No it's fine zero degrees Celsius thirty two degrees Fahrenheit so work from there so okay so then then you have battery back like so. The solar power feeds into some sort of battery bank or power. That then is connected to the house so like as you were thinking about building your house you had actually give all of this stuff. Thought like you need north facing you know and you want your probably your living space to be at least some have some exposure to the sun right like you had to think about the configuration of your house. Yeah but we also had sort of a house plan that was already pre redesigned which was a little bit tricky but it helped us reduce the cost of a house because Someone had already designed the house to build it and then bad property got sold to a mortgage I also we got the frames and trusses for below cost saved us a huge amount of money but just position it on the site. We've done it for the view but also it works well because the sun does come in one side In the morning and it comes around to the bedrooms which are on the sort of a waste side and afternoon so we're very lucky in the sense that it just worked out. Naturally my garage does get to woman. cassette is on the north side. But yeah definitely had to think about in terms of solar panels on where to put them and we did put the first straight on the end of our roof of a house and realized that that's not easy to clean them so then we made a shade. Which is where the generator is now stored and AL firewood supply so that it's easy to access them from the ground level so you have to clean the solar panel. Yeah Yeah 'cause we got a lot of dust and pollen hair and keep them clean and clear so that the sun can get to them. Yeah I know nothing about like alternative sources honestly So you know that. You don't live in Wellington right like you live about an hour outside of Wellington. You wanted to so. I'm assuming it's a little bit more undeveloped this yet I'm in rural New Zealand. Yeah Rural Zealand. Okay and you operate a business out of your house right. Yes so like you do everything like yeah so like it has the power your business. It has to power we don't we? Don't doe the main operations of our business that gets done off site but I just do the administration like all of us work the offices based here basically we're about Internet so I m connected to the incident that's awesome but we have. I don't have a fiber Internet. Or Anything. Super powerful my internet speed only just upgraded. M At the end of last year. Which makes it a little bit difficult. it's done by a dish which is on my roof which is aimed at a tower on the hill. And it's my Internet service. Provided beams across somehow technical detail is high. Like my cell phone right like I can connect to my cell phone as hot spot and I could make myself hotspot because it's connected the cell towers something like that. I don't know so you have a podcast. Yes You tell us a little bit about your podcast. My podcast is cold. Sunshine and power cuts and that was the easiest way. I could sum up this journey that I've been on for the last eight years that I've been living off the grid here. I've got sunshine. It's great one flew and that's how I tell my home but then there's also been the powercuts when a guy said it's cloudy and it doesn't go so well and I get seasonal affective disorder. Because I I've had depression and other times as well but found like it was amplified during the winter because I'm just don't have enough power and I'd relying on the way the to do that for me. So was looking for a way to sort of help motivate me and uplift me and the sunshine episodes do that drawing on the examples of nature that I find inspiration from the good things of being mindful of what I have to do every day by trekking. What I'm doing and actually tying it in with the weather and like making sure I get out in nature more because we can be busy all the time and be connected to digital stuff So I do that. In the sunshine episode in the Palkot cut ones where about sharing the journey of like a personal journal of what has been like living off the power grid. The way that I'm being doing it. Yeah that's fascinating I can't I can't imagine I mean I lived in Ethiopia for a year and we had to deal with planned powercuts every night. I think it happened at four o'clock and so you would just use your computer until the battery ran out and then you would just like have a head lamp and read or whatever and that's just how you got through it and you know you just sort of planet. It's amazing what you can get used to but yeah but it's it's. It's a had to be an interesting journey for you. Yeah it's been interesting because we built up from very Moses to my head one solar panel and battery at the very beginning and then now I've got twelve panels and twenty bet as it sounds like a lot but and now I'm at the point where if I was going to expand on it at have to sort of invest in the big ticket items which would cost me a lot so my system is at the maximum where it can be right now and as you add on more. It's funny how we want a little bit more and we kind of we get used to working with the limited that we've gotten when we get a little bit more it's like oh. I want a little bit more than that. So little and it gets and have you had any like. Had you done anything like this before? Had you ever lived off the grid or any and any sort of alternative sources before we have a construction company and we'd whipped on an island great barrier island. And they have that love good there. They usually use generators to power. I think building up this panel staff now And so I had had experienced Hobart but not fo- time like So yeah it was exciting and it was really interesting beginning than it. Sort of the novelty we wore off and as you get busy with work and life and those things happen it gets a little bit much in in their other amazing things when you do have a good run of good weather and it feels like an amazing achievement to generate your own power and what you can do with it and then it's just like a struggle. Sometimes you wish just do whatever anytime and not have to worry about it. Would you do it all over again? I want to say yes but I I would probably try and do it. A little bit differently We don't have a lot of SMUT staff to help us can manage things. I have to manually and so if I was doing it again. I'd probably want some of that stuff to just take the pressure off. Because there's lots of great things you can add into your system to make it work for you make it even better so I'd probably want bed or just to have a bigger system to start with Hezbollah struggles Yeah I mean. I can't imagine that there was a lot of smart stuff back when you started the whole process. Like I don't think smart home stuff existed back then. I'm not sure I think that we were. Just we move very able and budget. So the SMART Steph was probably even out of budget anyway if it was there so we didn't even look at it out as system is very very simple which actually makes it quite easy to maintain. So there's that but just doesn't make it that exciting against and bizarre reason that you chose like kind of where you're living now. Yes but it was an opportunity that we head. It's not ideal so again if I was doing it again. I'd live somewhere where there were more sunshine hours like Nelson in New Zealand. Which is in the top of the South Island? I'd moved the plenty of Sunshine. Now isn't it would be much better suited to being off the grid and you but so like you chose you wanted to stay coast and well or like the business okay. So the business is probably based in at and family and family got hit. Okay and what's your view like you've got a good view? Oh it's amazing for anyone who follows me on instagram. That's probably they know that if you off the Becca they handed the most. She had picture of anything that I take photos of is my view. I love it. It's a mountain range. They look at across with some trees in the foreground and it changes with the light on an undercover. So what instagram's for everybody at Sunpower Pod? Okay so I WANNA I WANNA wrap up. I want to you to tell us about the event that you're planning that I participated in last year. I appreciate that it was awesome to have you on. I just want to say that I love being part of podcast. Brunch club Adela I think that can at twenty eighteen two years ago. I joined up because there isn't anything super podcast related here even just from listeners. Point of view and I wanted a way of connecting with people who are passionate about podcasts. And podcasts this thing and so we've been gone for two years. The Wellington chapter and it's been amazing so we let them meet UPS. Yeah we love having you. Yeah so twice a year in order to bring people together from around the world because that's an important made up which is amazing. Podcast brush club. Does that but to bring people together from further afield. I decided to do a live stream event over wake and it's called the sunshine summit in Zet Sunshine Summit Dot live and I do it in match to celebrate my birthday actually and then In August to celebrate the Pacific. My podcast in this year. We've got about five guests. Joining us in a diller. I appreciate that you were with US last year to to Cheryl about podcast bunch club. Yeah it was fun. Yeah and I just appreciate anybody who tries you know like we are very tied to our our devices and so I totally appreciate every effort that anybody makes to even if it's still tied to our devices just like get us face to face I mean even our virtual chapter meetings really kind of asked people to turn on their video. Because there's just something about seeing people you know like I'm not making wearing makeup right now. I do not look good right now. But whatever like I don't care you know it's just about connecting with people face to face and you know having that contact and I can't I mean especially since like you're probably a little bit isolated and where you live anyway that it's really important for you to like make real connection so we're so happy to have you as part of podcast. French COBB and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you having me. Thanks for listening. If you want to help support more connections in the world.

"wellington" Discussed on Podcast Brunch Club

"Group in Wellington New Zealand. Heather Welsh and I am really really excited that she's able to join us today high. Hey Adela so I wanted to get you on the line and talk to you first of all. I love the idea of talking to Oliver Members. All over the world just to give everybody a voice you know. I feel like podcast. Bunch group is a community. And I'd really like to make the podcast sort of community. Podcast so I love featuring are awesome members. We have such cool people in podcast. Burns club all over the world and you are one of those very cool people so I wanted to sort of touch base with you and get your perspective a little bit on the theme. I I know you and your group curated. The plate last chose the theme of nuclear power. So why don't we start with? Why did you guys choose that theme? It's interesting we had wanted to pick a theme for the playlist that what headed sort of a New Zealand element to it. Except funnily enough New Zealand's nuclear free and it Spain nuclear-free the whole time. We haven't had nuclear power generated here. It was on the plan. The sort of national energy plan to have nuclear power generated. Here back around nineteen sixty nine to nineteen seventy six but it didn't eventuate and then public opinion has kind of wavered whether people actually would think it's a good idea or not to have it and in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven after the Rainbow Warrior which was a Greenpeace ship. Got Taken out by two French Diva's it was protesting the nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific. And so that actually co prompted us to develop some they just lay around banning nuclear weapons women's tasting and stuff. What it doesn't do though is actually been land-based nuclear power generation so that could still happen here. It just hasn't So we had wanted to try and pull on that and some of the things that we episodes we looked at. They were more around the great that Greenpeace rainbow thing and our response in that sense of weapons testing but we took it on the theme of just power generation and since we have generated nuclear power. That way I just wanted to sort of open up that compensation of what is people's experience with nuclear power particularly because last year they had that teeny series which they also hit the related podcast on kind of tend to focus on those sort of negative experiences. And then my personal tie into it is I have alternative palace. So Yeah Yeah. Yeah and that's I mean definitely I wanted to. I know that you live off the grid and so that was one of the main things I wanted to kind of talk to you about. I think you know we listen to a lot of episodes on the playlist. That kind of talked about how? There's like a really good case for using nuclear power and that there's all these alternative options also and that there's obviously pros and cons to each one. But I know that you have this really unique experience living off the grid. So can you tell us a little bit about? What is that like? Like what is your day like on a day-to-day basis and I know it's seasonal. So go go deep so I live off the power grid meaning that I have solar panels. Add to draw in the power from like sunshine hours and I saw that in a battery bank. And that's how I'm able to US ED. And the reason for doing that was because it was too expensive to get grid connected. I can say Palestine's from my house but I just couldn't get connected to them. I'd have to get a transformer in cables under the road and up to my place that it wasn't Palley here and that happens a lot in New Zealand and we're really lucky here because we're able to. I know that in some places around the world there restrictions on what you're able to do like independently out off the grid is such so. I rely on Sunshine Full Power and that is seasonal. And Right now it's we've had a bit of rain which is really lucky. Because again I've got to manage water things as well Not Just Power. GotTa have good sunshine. It's very cloudy where I live museums. Now his land of the long white clouds cloud cover which is not ideal but it was an option. And I'm really grateful that we have the ability to sort of create our own system and power so that news it and I'm not relying on the grid so did you you. It sounds a little bit like and correct me. If I'm wrong you didn't kind of go into it saying like I want to live off the grid like this is just the thing that had to happen because you did you buy land. And it was just not. Is that how it was? It was just not developed yet. That's right yeah. It wasn't the intention in the beginning. We would've gone connected. Had it not been so expensive and so because it was hurdle that we couldn't get over the bank. Give us the money to do it. It became this new journey that we decided to go down looking at options. What was available. And Yeah. They may have gone from the so the day to day thing is like tracking what the weather's doing and keeping an eye on how much Voltages coming in. What the bet she banks is of gotten in managing what activities? I do with run the dishwasher dishwasher or washing them by hand with our. Ma will turn the washing machine. Honor I leave that to later or vacuum or you know just been balancing Mike consumption with what's coming in really I mean we all should probably do right like we should all probably balance our consumption. But it's so much easier if you're living on the grid too just like run the dishwasher whenever you want like I remember actually in Chicago. There's an option. I think with our electricity company and I had it set up at my old place. It was like Called real pricing so like instead of averaging out the price of of a kilowatt or whatever however they they measure it they would actually charge you based on the hour by hour price or even the minute by minute price of the supply and demand or whatever and so you could log onto the portal and see like what is is. This above average is below average and you know sort of trying to prompt people to use energy. When it's you know cheaper and better for everybody so you get alerts on your phone being like. Hey just FYI. I it's really high right now. If you can probably you know. Try not to use your dishwasher. Try Not to use you know your your laundry but I mean it was an interesting. I don't know how many people actually used it in the way that I think it was intended but it was. It was a good alternative. But so okay so you did you build your house. Then did you buy the land and then okay so you built your house so you knew exactly what you're getting into. You didn't have to retrofit a house. No okay so so you have merely get your energy from solar panels on the roof. I'm assuming or do you have a just solar panels and then if that's not enough. I have a backup generator. Which will charge the battery. Backup for me which I have to use. Probably more regularly than I'd like to and the generator is gas powered its petrol powered petrol. Okay Yeah the New Zealand. The New Zealand equivalent petrol and gas. So okay so then you have these solar solar panels. You haven't generator. And then how does the water thing work somehow? The panels power heating water. So I have my hot water cylinders connected to my fireplace. Which can I have to light the Fed primarily to hate my hot water only because the the hot water cylinder is three? Kilowatts uses three kilowatts.

Reparations In New Zealand

"We start recording okay. Still it Mavis. Mullins started her career in in sheep bond in New Zealand. Her job was degrade the quality of wool. I loved it and war was such a beautiful natural fiber. It's actually a protein. Mavis is now one of New Zealand's most powerful will magnates. Her company handles a million sheep a year. Yeah Mavis is involved with all kinds of boards and trusts and a big part of her life. Is Hotel Rooms. Taxi CABS FREQUENT FLYER LOUNGES. Although initially she was a bit shy about that. Frequent Flyer status. I don't want to expose myself. Actually you saw. Of course there's nothing hidden. I am an elite gold club member and proud of it and I just want to point out that you can hear and Mavis this fundamental paradox of being New Zealander like myself. It's basically into us that we never spice to Brag but we're also meant to always tell it like it is and I find that really hard myself may mullins on the other. Hand is unusually deft. This she has this disarming honesty that let's just cut to the chase about anything and you you will like her even more. It has made her a great negotiator. Her friends know this about her her business associates and apparently her cousin because one day Mavis was on a trip to New Zealand's capital city. Which you just happened to run into this cousin. Eliza in Wellington we passed in the street and he said to me stop. Anita have coffee with your cousin wasn't just grabs you and pulls you into a coffee shop. Yeah that's how it started. Mavis knew it was about to come and to some degree had been actively avoiding very conversation. May this is Maree an indigenous New Zealander and she knew that her tribe was scheduled to sit down with the government for one of the most important negotiations in. Its history and negotiation for reparations. The more accurate word for tribe in New Zealand is e we May Miss E. We have been working towards this reparations movement for decades and at this surprise coffee meeting may cousin essentially was saying we need you Mavis. We need you to drop some of that jet set business life and come help the tribe come help. The every politics isn't always very pleasant. I'd rather be in business with the lines are pretty well drawn. So it's it's just a whole different ballgame. Did you say I'll think about it? I said I'll talk to you later. Wise Move Below. Welcome to planet money. I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Daria Moods the story of Zealand is unfortunately familiar. The country had an indigenous population was colonized by Europeans. And by the Nineteen Seventies Baldy had lost ownership of ninety seven percent of their land often through deception and sometimes violence but over the last thirty five years the New Zealand. Government has spent billions of dollars to build a system to address those unthinkable. Wrong and to try and actually pay for them today on the show we head to New Zealand to see how it works and to hear what it's like to put a price on history. We ask Mavis mullets. Because of course he agreed to help her cousin negotiate. Rangan said put on. Just hurry up. It's just get on with the support for NPR in the following message. Come from Hiscox.

And if you kind of zoom in on the bottom part of the North Island you'll land here on a small mountain that Mavis mullins knows as Puka almost like an inland island dedicated to the boot song. The name polka comes from a model where that means flock of hawks all Windy Mountain. This is where Mavis is travis from her e we we see People Mountain People. We were people of the forest. That was a food basket. Prediction Castle Moat Play. Grand was Kim was there chemists. She says it was their pharmacists. Mauri the indigenous people of New Zealand were way ahead of Walgreens. They were using leaves and seeds that now show up and Commercial Pharmaceuticals. Mavis remembers being sick as a little kid. Her Grandma was able to just collect ingredients from the forest poultices and potions things like that where you like now. I don't want to drink that. Grandma was it would you? You didn't really have too much of a choice. You sit down and have this this'll help your tummy for Mavis. Ancestors way back. The forest was everything but then the European settlers came F. I just a handful of settlers who wanted to tear down some of the forest to farm. Sheep Mavis Z. We figured great. We can charge these settlers rent. They'll tear down some trees in some small plots but the we can preserve the rest of the forest but then the New Zealand government got involved after a series of bad deals unfulfilled promises outright deception by the colonial government almost all of the ease land ended up in the hands of white settlers and within just one generation. Mavis his ancestors went from being landlords. Four the white settlers to being there laborers their farm workers and sheep shares because of their own government. Wow just happened so quick. Without regard you would not good partners. We're not sincere. You're not true Be Nice to have you say sorry. Damage Mavis ancestors had gotten everything from this vast swath of forest and almost all of that forest was chopped down when the land was sold to white settlers. In fact there's really only one big chunk remaining now. Who is all? That's really lift of the forest. This is the last real remnant. That's an one pace. Fukuhara is the last real place where Mavis can go to see and feel and hear what our ancestors would have experienced but infuriatingly it was no longer controlled by Mavis E. We Pukhov fell into government ownership and to add insult to injury for all of us as life New Zealand. Maps did not use the name Puka. Mount Price was mount. Brace Mount Bruce and nobody seems to know exactly who bruce was or why Polka got changed to mount. Bruce certainly wasn't because it sounded better Pakeha. It sounds like a booed cool doesn't polka whereas mount. Bruce. Kinda doesn't have that same that I'm beautiful flow to us. Yeah now all of the history from the renaming of Puka to the mass transfer of land. This is not necessarily something that may this new in its entirety. All of this came together during the first stage of New Zealand's reparations process effect finding tribunal mimics witnesses. Promo ploy is audio is from Davis Tribunal. And there were hundreds of hours of testimony at this from regular we members including Mavis. His Dad Kimba shop and from land surveyors and historians land has demoralizing influence on the and also from legal experts for Mavis Z. Y. Which by the way is named Danny are? After months of testimony tribunal officials pulled together a single exhaustive history of how the government betrayed. Mavis his ancestors that history is a thousand pages long and covering all? The real truth was just devastating. Just how ruthless heartless and fast it was versions of the same story happened all over New Zealand. Maury make up about sixteen percent of the country's population now and they're about one hundred Mauri tribal groupings in New Zealand. Each could have their own one thousand page. History of betrayal Mavis is Maury experienced kind of social and economic shock that gets inherited generation after generation. I wish I could say that. It wasn't but it is it.

Why Do Our Tax Dollars Support Unhealthy Food?

The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

Why Do Our Tax Dollars Support Unhealthy Food?

"Juan. Focus on something. Really Kinda scary. Which is our government policies and part of you know how I got into this as a doctor. My patients are sick from eating the wrong food. Why food the food system? Why do we have the system? Well it's our food policies. Why don't we have the food policies? What's our food industry? That's driving the policies and funding so much literally billions of dollars. So I just sort of take you through a few simple policies that I think could be changed and then I'm working to change to the future campaign which I love you all to be a part of The first thing we're in talk about is food stamps or snap now. They were great thing and they helped me hunger and food insecurity their forty six million people in America who part of the snap program including one in four children. That's the good news and it does help address the hunger issues but it definitely doesn't address the health issues and study after study showing that people who are on snap are not as healthy and that actually. Wellington disease and other risk issues. Why because there are no nutrition guidelines and snap now you have to realize this is probably the biggest government program ever. It's seven hundred thirty five to fifty billion dollars depending on the year. Ten Year Program at seventy five billion a year Which is mostly junk food when you look at the stats on. What the things that people buy arts? It's seventy five percent junk. Food and ten percent is soda our thirty plus billion servings a year for the poor that we pay for his tax payers their government pays for it. And why isn't there nutrition guideline? There seems like there's something it should be like that their school lunch guidelines as women and Children Program Guidelines. But for some reason there's no guidelines and it's not by accident there's a huge amount of lobbying effort that prevents the government from changing it. There's hunger groups for example funded by the Soda Industry that fight any reduction or removal of processed food or sugar sodas from the Food Stamp Program and and there's a huge amount of benefits that goes to these companies. I Read I think that twenty percent of Cokes American revenue comes from food stamps and Walmart out of the seven hundred thirty five billion about one hundred thirty billion go to Walmart for for food and not all. His food has some great food but I doubt they're buying the veggies so it's really a huge issue that we're helping the poor not be hungry but we're not making them healthy and so there's a lot of effort to think about. How do we put nutrition or in back in the Food Stamps Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program? Because right now it's a lot of calories but not a lot of nutrients and we need to improve that. I think it's really important. Initiative and there's groups like the bipartisan Policy Initiative in Washington. That's a group of senators and Congressmen and and and Agriculture Secretary from both parties. That have really come together to look at this and they think we should ban soda from the Food Stamp Program where she put an interesting guidelines. Great study showing if you incentivize people think and use incentives and also disincentives. It works in other words. If you increase the amount of money you get to buy vegetables. Let's say they do it with for example thirty percent increase of dollars. You get one point three dollars or an extra thirty cents to buy vegetables if you do that. Great with Simpson. But if you want to buy soda maybe you get seven seven cents on the dollar seventy cents on the dollar instead of one hundred thirty cents so there's a lot of ways incentivize people and it works. They show that it really works. It's double bucks for example for Farmers Markets. Where you can go? If you go to a farmer's market you get You know instead of one dollars two to buy my whatever you want. If he's long fresh food. There's all sorts of ways to do that so the food stamp program really is a big issue and it can be really improved and it can really help. Because we're paying for the Medicare Medicaid and these patients need after they get sick The next big category is Dietary guidelines which have improved over the years for sure. But it's a little scary because they are now a political tool The dietary guidelines are recommended by an advisory group. That's a science group although many of them have conflicts of interest and And then they give it to the government and then the government decides was out so for example last time they recommended we should have environmental considerations in our dietary guidelines and the government said no way that was a problem and then we have for example the corruption of the science and last guidelines approach the trump administration recently said we cannot look at anything about ultra processed foods by the way which kills eleven million people. So count any science about that and we can't look at Anything for example on the dietary guidelines that have to do with looking at mead or low carb diets or any other restrictions. They looked at all. You only look at studies. They were done after two thousand that cuts out a lot of really good studies that should inform our guidelines that were well done. They could government studies. You can locate and in science studies. How does that make any sense? So it's really pretty corrupt. National Academy of Sciences. Put a report showing just how bad it was. A number of years ago made recommendations which sadly are not being followed so the dietary guidelines should represent science and should look at all the data and should have fair. Public comments can look at it and make comments on it and it should be Driven by science and not a bunch of bureaucrats who don't actually necessarily have the public health interests at heart. So that's that's they're improving but it's still not great and then of course we have the FDA dragon ration- which is supposed to protect us but it's kind of failing why because one They allow thirty million pounds of antibiotics. In our animal feed that is affecting US creating superbugs and cost two trillion a year. Kill seven hundred. Thousand people around the world from anybody resistant. Not all not all from the farms. Obviously but it's a huge factor. And WE KNOW THEY CAUSE OBESITY. They cause weight gain. That's actually what they'd given for. Not JUST PREVENTION. But for a game. And they're not regulated. I give them voluntary guidelines. Oh don't do that. Please don't do that but it's kind of garbage because they do it anyway. the also allow things that are banned in other countries for example. Izzo Dye carmine. Which is a so a yoga mat material and it also is used in bread and subway sandwiches and stuff and And using Singapore you get a foreign fifty thousand dollar fine and you get fifteen years in jail whereas here you can just put it in your sandwich. Stop at any of the fast food places although many of them have taken out there's BPA which again is banned in other countries that causes obesity is. It's an endocrine disruptor b. h. t. v. and these these are preservatives that are against seem to be carcinogenic. So there's all sorts of things that the FDA is not helping us with in terms of regulating that So that's a big problem and I think And also what's grass grasset if they allow all sorts of gratification which is Joan wrecks and say things that aren't really safe like say for example is not necessarily safe and yet is permitted in our food supply? So there's all sorts of issues. Fda's you've got the USDA this food stamp program that dietary guidelines if ta and there are other departments that are considering for example food marketing. Now the First Amendment's important But I don't know free speech counts when you're talking about targeting kids and manipulating them. So that's a big issue and I think we know that marketing drives huge amounts of behavior changing kids and You know kids will go by whatever they see on. Tv They can a little two year old can can actually go in and and name the brand names by it before the bill that he can walk and ask for it in the store they've seen it on TV and in some countries like in Chile. They ban food marketing to kids. Most many other countries have been very successful at. It seemed great reductions and obesity and purchasing the bad foods For example and Chile you can't have any TV or any other advertising between six am and ten PM for any junk food. It taken off the cartoon characters from the Boxes like no more twenty tiger they killed him and they limited any junk food in schools and they seem dramatic improvement. So there's so many great policies that are being demonstrated around the world that we can be can model here and I think you know the the take home here is that there's a lot of aspects of our government positively need to be fixed and of course we've talked before about region and not just subsidizing commodity crops corn wheat and soy that. Make US sick and fat. I mean sixty percent of our diet comes from these foods which are ultra processed into all sorts of ingredients that make us really sick and kill eleven million people a year. Sixty percent of calories is this ultra processed food and for every ten percent of your food. That's ultra process. Your risk of death goes up by fourteen percent and yeah we subsidize it on the front with crop supports and then we pay for it with food stamps. And then we pay for the Medicare Medicaid on the other end so the tax payers are really footing. The bill for this when. It's really an preventable problem. So we need lots of reform across government policies. And that's what I'm working on with this book. Food fix getting every member of Congress get into the White House? It's a tough slog. I know but I've got an amazing team around me for our food fix campaign stay tuned for more about that part of it. We're all GONNA need to move this forward on a grassroots level and this isn't just for me it's a mission and it's just the beginning of an effort to really change the food system at so many levels so we can solve so many of our global

Oliver Wellington & Neil Mody: The No Effort Approach To Promotion

"Today's nice guys episode. We dig deeper into what? Why and how? With headliner founders. Neil mody I think I got that right. Neil mody and Oliver Wellington we're going to talk podcasting promotion and welcome guys to the Nice guys on business podcast and you did get it right where we're glad to be here. Thanks for having you guys are welcome in and Neil so everybody knows your voice. Neil can you? Can you say hi so everybody knows who you are when you first start talking ahead? Neil Haya okay that is neil and Oliver. Please share your voice because you said although you go second. You're smarter than than Neil. Is that correct now? I actually didn't say but Yeah this is my voice so it is now and we sound the same tough. Well maybe maybe for the first couple of questions you can say. Hey this is Neil speaking your. Hey this is Oliver speaking. That's probably a good way to tune in for for a Nice Guy Community. It's so rare that we actually have two people that were interviewing. I thought. Maybe it's because people are so repelled by me that they just don't ever WanNa come on at two at a time and but I see this is the actual a very good partnership that you guys have. We've you're cutting yourself to To shore but y'all overnight worked together for two companies now so over a decade. So we're we're we're attached at the hip on what's interesting is so my partner Strickland Bonner who co host. The Friday shows with me we do too interviews and one just stricken I shoot shit and talking about business and other fun stuff about our personal lives You know we both have what we would call both are zone of excellence. Zone of genius and Strickland's zone of Excellent improbably even gravitating towards zone of genius our our systems and creating great processes in a spreadsheets. And I suck at that stuff and I tend to find that my zone of genius or zone of excellence may be gravitating towards my zone of Janus is working in the relationship and sales space. So why don't you? I share where you guys. Kinda fit in with each other and then we'll talk a little bit about headliner and in some of your successes that you've had well I will. This is Oliver speaking. I will say that most people that know nealon. I think it's funny that we worked together. 'cause we're very different trying to explain myself by actually describing. Neil and so you can imagine the opposite okay. Nail is very technical very analytical very logical. He's very patient. I am kind of odd. Not those things as much and so like I don't know if Sarah Zones of excellence I don't know if I really think about things in that same way. But in general I. Can you know work a lot with our community building? You know working with users at our last company. We were with bloggers. I kind of lead the community outreach and community building there And then you know we're startups. We juggle a lot of the other kind of West exciting tasks that startup as to. But Neil and I actually kind of are a little bit of a two headed monster. When it comes to different projects will work on. You know all types of aspects of projects together. So so Oliver would you. Would you consider yourself of the two of you? Would you consider yourself the more client facing side of the business and you would think that but no okay so wait is so so neil is the is the tech expert and he's the client facing site so. I'm trying to figure out what the sandwiches there. Yeah so if you think about it right like we cover you know. We're working with larger companies and then we also work with just a huge array of podcasters. Right so if you think about the community of you know your podcast or you're just starting out and wants to get in and try out these new tools like that's kind of what I work with. Neil works with the background is acknowledging but also does the the more B. Two B. sales stuff at the higher level sue. Okay got it. I'm wearing a tie dye t shirt right now. I saw that and I and I appreciate and respect that I probably for most of my. I'm fifty five so for most of my My teenage years and even beyond I probably I look in my closet. I don't know if I have any of my tie-dyed shirts. I think my first ex wife decided that she was going to throw them all away like so. How about you Neil? What's tell me a little bit about where yeah either Describe Oliver to me or describe yourself to me either way totally. Well I think I'LL OLIVER. Those around about way to say for his excellence is a is creative juices and specifically community building so. I think those two aspects are like really big Boats in our last company in this on soap so yes this is just some background. We were one of the biggest content recommendation companies On the Internet it's called it was called N relate so if you've ever read an article in at the bottom those links of what else to read We were one of the biggest providers of that and our biggest market was in the blocks gear. So if you're a blogger circa two thousand nine two thousand two thousand eleven is a pretty good chance used our software. We're on over like one hundred thousand sites and so on and Oliver was responsible for really growing that Community building it serving it Working with them to really refine our product and then I guess yeah for myself I guess I mean I just yeah very technical background And so I'd say I really liked to think hard in deep and long about problems and problem solving different types of things so that's probably mine. If I had to come up with one let me ask Oliver. Let me ask you a question just because I know that many of the time some of some of the challenges that our podcast clients have as we are talking to those that are in our turnkey podcast community. 'cause I said I'm going to really work hard at trying to to wear a couple of different hats here. I WANNA wear the head of the podcast as a podcast producer in the owner of a production company. But I also want to talk to the entrepreneurial base. That's out there. But let's just talk to the podcast for a quick second because it sounds like you've had a considerable amount of success in this basin so let me direct this dollar for just a moment. What do you think is the is the biggest hurdle that people have to get over in order to start building community because that's one of the biggest challenge that talk about the big three and podcasting. It's how do you build community? How do you grow influence? And how do you make money while money and influence or important? It's really challenging to do any of those things without a community. So can you share? Maybe some of the some of the maybe some of the mistakes some of the things that you see that people should be leaning into when it comes to building community. I really think we've always taken a very kind of basic approach to this. It works and that's number one Listen to people's feedback to enact that feedback Three let them know about it. And that's kind of the cycle. We follow right so you release something thinking people will use it someway the they might use it the way you intended. They might not make sure when they tell you. Hey I wish it did this that if if you can do that for them in the nasty blast for that you make those changes and then over time you build the product that people really want and it'll somewhat naturally it gets spread around the best way people hear about us is word of mouth and so that's kind of what we've totally focused is just getting a great product out to people and continually improving it.
