"Podcast it is the day after the election. I personally completely emotionally drained. And i've been all over the place just with my emotions with the chaos with the back and forth And so. I wasn't sure what i was going to post on the podcast today because i wanted it to be appropriate for the time I did end up having a conversation with jake. Woodard who is a spiritual healer and the host of the awake. With jake show podcast. I've been following his work for a while and a really have been intrigued. Mostly by his focus on the masculine and feminine energies. Inside of all of us so we talked a lot about that. But i really lead this conversation with where i was emotionally and jake was so gracious to give me some tips for all of us in kind of coping with the emotions that we were dealing with and processing through what is happening in our country right now the bags the masculine and feminine energies. What we talked about a lot with those was the spiritual healing that the awareness of those energies can bring so he told me what those can look like as wounds what those can look like when they're embodied Fully within yourself and how. They can affect our relationships. It's to me what we are drawn to energy wise without even a conscious awareness of this so through this podcast a really discovered how important it is to spiritual healing figuring out which energy we are predominantly and just learning how we can lean into that energy and it can truly be guide for how we navigate our lives. We recorded this. Podcast as i said. It's the day after the election. So i'm i'm putting it up the also the same day which is very odd but it was such a good conversation in so healing for me that i really felt like you guys might need to hear it today. He also just walked me through dealing with this emotional exhaustion that i'm feeling And it turned into kind of a mini session for me of just expressing some of owner ability honestly and tears came out of course but just of my own current struggles and blocks within my own feminine energy and just how that's manifesting in my life. I'm a deep female energy which is of no surprise to me. But i'm wondering if you guys are feeling what. I'm feeling it just in life in general in relationships in your body's listen to this.

"woodard" Discussed on Houston Matters
"Daniel. Thank you for those comments at. Thank you for waiting so long to share with US I guess Dr Woodard the point is there are a lot of regulations that we abide by in society every day and the mask one is one more, but this one has the potential of saving lives like speeding ordinance and things like that correct. Absolutely and I will say that it's been very interesting to me to watch the public response to wearing masks, because while there may be some discomfort, I think the benefits of doing this so far outweigh wearing a mouse that I don't understand why individuals are so resistant to do it now i. do know that there have been some perceptions that somehow we are interfering with an individual's civil liberties, and that we're trying to impose something on individuals, but I think that when you are in. In the midst of a pandemic, you have to really again think about the broader public health approach, certainly doing all of these things that we can do to stem the tide of covid nineteen are important and unfortunately I don't think that we've done as good of a job as we can. About sensitizing our local communities and more broadly at the regional and national levels about the importance of these measures I, think one important aspect of public health strategies to mitigate the spread of covid nineteen and. pandemics or communicable diseases is education and information. So think that we have to do a better job of getting this information out to our communities, and that's why you know shows like the one that you have are so important in helping to spread that information. And I want to remind everybody that we're running tight on time today, but there have to be those of you out there listening. Don't agree with the Mask Ordinance and we'd love to hear from you two or those of you who feel like you shouldn't have to wear a mask. You have every right to let your voice be heard to. We'd love to hear what you're thinking and why you think that, but right now we're going to jump back to the phone lines Chris is our next caller Chris. What's on your mind? yes, I have a very unusual case of asthma, not even in my lungs in my trachea that lead to things triggering wouldn't trigger normal asthmatics and literally every time I. Put a mask on. It is triggered my asthma. Am I exempted from these orders. That's a great question I'm not sure Dr Woodard has the order in front of her, but I know there are some exemptions Dr Whittard. You're absolutely right I. Don't have it in front of me I. Know that it's broadly intended to to mitigate the spread of covid nineteen, but certainly they're individuals who have specific conditions that may preclude them from being able to wear mass, although that won't be the majority, the one thing that I will say to Chris is you know if there are ways to try to find A. A mass that works for him I think it's important, and the reason is because he mentioned that he has an underlying condition in particular he has underlying asthma, and we know that individuals who have underlying health conditions. Art increased risk of having of contracting covert and having poor outcomes related to it so I think it's you know definitely a balanced, and I definitely understand his concerns But I think that you know in the absence of being able to do that. He certainly has to make sure that he's doing all of the other things that we talk about as far as strategies to reduce cove it particularly the social distancing particularly appropriate hygiene, and then you know as is best possible. You know really trying to limit this the contact that he has with individuals who might be infected. Okay really quickly. We have caffeine. She's going to be our last call today if she can keep her question short and Dr, witter has a quick answer for her. We'll get her in. Kathy thank you Thank you for the show to. My question is if you go to any then I. heard that you. If you go to an event that you should be tested and my question is. Would you be tested soon after the you've attended the event, or should you wait for fourteen days to see if if you have any symptoms? Cut You right there Kathy. Thank you how soon after going to a mass gathering is the right time to get tested. Yeah, I think as soon as possible after you've been to. Those mass gatherings are important, and we've also seen some recommendations that people who are going to these mass gatherings actually quarantine themselves for fourteen days, even in the absence a- symptoms and the absence of. Of being tested so I, think it's important to be tested as soon as possible. After that I think it's also important to consider that you may. In fact, have had exposure, and if possible, Corentin for fourteen days after you've attended some sort of gathering, of course, our first recommendation is that you not attend those sorts of large gatherings with lots of people particularly in indoor spaces. Doctor would have really quickly. We heard that after the rallies and stuff that people went to. They were requesting you wait five days to a week to get tested, so you're saying probably sooner than that is a better idea. Well I think the issue that we have with testing. Right is that there's the time that it takes to actually seek testing, so some people are actually able to go out and get testing relatively quickly, but others are finding delay in that, and so certainly We want people to see as soon as possible. Try to get tested. Certainly, there is time to exposure when you might develop the and. Might Develop Peuvent nineteen, so if people are waiting five days I doing okay, actually allowing yourself the opportunity to from exposure, actually develop covid, nineteen or develop a covid nineteen positively, but I do think it's important just to be mindful of the fact that within short order it's important to think about getting tested so that you can reduce the opportunity to spread covid nineteen after you've been exposed at some of these large gatherings or potentially exposed. Whittard thank you very much. Sorry about the phone troubles earlier. Thank you for joining US Dr. Woodward comes to us from the University of Houston College of Medicine and we hope to have her back again soon. Thank you. Very quickly, we have Matt Harrop hanging on the line and again. I have cut him short on time. I'm sorry Matt. Matt, what have you been following for us today? Hey Ernie mayor veterans. Furner. just announced that one thousand, seven, hundred eighty nine new cases of covid nineteen are being reported today over eight, hundred reported on Friday over nine hundred on Saturday and I'm giving you. All of these numbers in a clustered because these are all cases that were reported in June at that seventeen hundred number from today is partially backlog from test administered in the second week of June, but it is quite clear listening to Mayor Turner listening to county. Judge Lena Hidalgo There's no doubt. Doubt they're concerned. I'm GONNA give you a couple of their numbers here. At the end of May. Three percent of people who tested at city testing sites received a positive result that number now according to Dr David purse with Houston, health. Department is at nine percents, so we've seen a threefold increase in terms of the positivity rate at city, testing sites, and I'll just read one of the more powerful quotes here from Mayor Turner as he concluded his press conference just a couple of minutes ago, he said. said quote the disappointment for me. Is that all the good work shutting down closing conferences and conventions with all of that good work we are now engaged and opening activities again where we are wiping away the success we collectively achieved, and the sacrifices that people have made the mayor did express some frustration at the fact that he's Hamstrung in terms of what he can do. but early real quickly, the governor also spoke today. He registered the problems in quote. Cova nineteen is now spreading at an unacceptable rate. Rate in Texas and must be corralled, but from what the governor said today, Ernie he talked most importantly about how Shubin behavior needs to change the most, he says he does not want to take away people's freedoms. He doesn't want to prevent people.

The Frame Oscar Special
"Are ready. Let's do it. Welcome to the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. Welcome to the one million breath and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to get anybody. I'M GONNA find you're GONNA give you. Massive snow snowed. Everybody who bought a ticket told somebody to buy a ticket. Thank you I love you if I may be so honored to have all all the female nominees and every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors Maryland you do it everybody else will come on all right all right all right. I'm John Horn host to the frame and joining me is Jacqueline coli editor at Ron Tomatoes Jacqueline. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me John so I know we're only a couple seconds in certified fresh so far. I think you're doing great. You're certified fresh and honestly I would say all the best picture nominees are also pretty awesome. It's probably the highest average on the tomato meter of best picture nominees. We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger. Who Plays Judy Garland in Judy Yukon? There's an audience other ways. It hears you sing my mouth driving. It was judy takes place in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty judy. Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing.
"woodard" Discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"HI everybody. I'm Peter Travers. This this popcorn where we tell you what is happening at the movies. And there's a movie you have to put on your must see list right now. It is called clemency. It stars my guest Alfre Woodard and you know this woman. She's like nominated for two thousand Emmys and won another thousand or whatever it is that you have but the thing about about Alfred. Is that when I see that. She's in a movie. I go like this yes. It's going to be okay because somebody that great is they're doing so congratulations for being you. Peter Yeah thank you ask all right. We're done here. There's no but clemency. I think it's one of the strongest things that I've ever seen you do. It's incredibly strong. So set it up a little for about who you play who this warden is so I play A death row award Bernie Williams and our story starts at a critical moment pit a pivotal moment in her career. She's probably see seeing twelve thirteen executions. She does her job well. She prides herself in in doing her job. Well and we can talk about what that means has a death row warden but we have at the top of the film and I can say that. It's not a spoiler. A botched botched execution and then going into the next execution so she starts to the confidence has been jowled a bit and and we we there is a man Anthony Williams who is on death row and it is Questionable whether he is actually guilty or innocent. But we don't Oh we don't deal with that in the film we don't decide every does it. In the end it does not especially when The question is what's the Seoul wound for the individuals whose tax dollars go there for the society that ritualistically punish people who whoever murdered and and done other crimes. Perhaps and the difference between them and us when we'd then ritualistically murdered that person but God the reason I went onto it. Peter is that for the first time. We're seeing from the point of view of the person who the perpetrators of the the penalty the industry We look at the people that we say okay. This person has to die. I you take care of it. We don't want to know so we look at the lives of those people you look at the lives of those people but you're warden. There's two things about her to is that. She's trying to do a job that she was hired to do which means a real professionalism in other words I don't feel one way for this person or this other person. I have this job to do. She hasn't made anyone guilty. She's not a judge she's just making the life of that prison function Shen number two which might be number one is. She's a woman in this job. Where basically you can't show that compassion that you you might be feeling and that's what devastated me in watching? This movie is to see your character watching this and the impact. It has on her and it's not not in the words in your face. Now you're amazing and his face of of Alice Hodge. Who plays the man in the chaplain when Michael Neale Jonathan? My husband everybody. Richard Schiff I WanNa talk about the the compassion most of the women and and I met women wardens in Ohio. Three women wardens one deputy warden the director of corrections who's a man and the man who is taken more people through the process probably than anybody in the world. The thing is most of the people I met. They came to Those positions nations from mental health And from social work So it's not just a job it's a calling in a way and and when you are caging incarcerating human beings you want a person there that knows the psychology of human beings and how to work with them how to keep that balance. How do you know stay the course and not you know? Keep the protocol. If you drop one stitch that whole thing can unravel aval. And as she says to Mardi Defense Attorney Richard Ship. Who's you know I personally would align with and he saying why can't you just let him and let the lawyers come talk to them business and she goes no? They're not they're not on the books or why can't he go to his mother's funeral so she keeps the protocol because she says is I've got a thousand people here who safety is in my hands and so it is it the compassion. Is You know how how things could go so until the state changes the law. You WanNA person there that will in there is in the contract. They make with the condemned person is. I will take you through this with as much dignity as possible. Well as you're saying that I think we should show this this clip from the movie because it is seen with you and Richard Schiff and I think really Straw about what you're saying and what this woman has to put up with from other people. Aw was. She's running a whole prison with thousand inmates in it. So let's just Joe. This one just wanted to know that there aren't people out there. That support him he. He didn't get his appeal city..
The 2020 Oscar Nominations Din't Have To Look Like This
"We now know who was nominated for this year's Academy Awards and who wasn't there were no women pick for the directing Oscar and only one person of color. Harriet Stars Cynthia. Rio was among the twenty acting nominees. He's but what if like Hollywood does in a few movies. There was an alternate history to the Oscars. Franklin Leonard wrote about his imagined Academy Award nominations for the Washington Post. He's the creator of the blacklist an annual compilation of much admired but unpredicted movie scripts Franklin. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me the back. So we're not so sad. Your column is almost funny. It could have been a satirical piece from the onion. What motivated it? Well here's here's the interesting thing right like it. It didn't necessarily need to even be ready satire if anything you know. The article was written as a as a list of all of the people could reasonably have been nominated in place of those who got nominated and I think that there are additional people. That aren't even mentioned in the article. who also could have gotten reasonably? We nominated and no one would have batted an eye except for the fact that it would have been unusual that all the nominees people of color that all of the directing on these women which you know is so far from our reality only because history would suggest that all the nominees should be white and all the directors should be met. Well let's talk about that right. Because there was a lot of great artistic accomplishment from people who weren't nominated I think about hustlers from Lorraine Skafar you on the star Jennifer Lopez Lulu Wong the director of the Farewell Greta Gerwig who made little women performances by Alfie Woodard and clemency Aquafina and farewell the entire cast a parasite right nominated for best picture. None of the actors were so. What's the disconnect in your mind between the great work and the recognition or lack of recognition of that? Great Work Work. I mean the short answer is racism and sexism in the intersection between the two. I think that there is a fundamental lack of appreciation for the work of women directors and the work of Actors of Color. I mean I. I saw it in on my twitter timeline. And yesterday people saying Oh Jennifer for Lopez wasn't really acting playing herself you know and I think there's an assumption that you know the actors in parasite or somehow that's just who they are. They're not actually performing. If you've been in a room with a with Song King Ho you know that that was a heck of a performance. So I think that the assumptions and the appreciation and the value that we give to these performances into these directing Sort of accomplishments is diminished. Because of. WHO's doing it? Someone told me you know. Why are you trying to inject politics politics into these decisions? And it's not that I'm trying to inject politics into it is the politics are already in it. I'd like to see them removed or at least an acknowledgement the extent to which the politics there. We're talking with blacklist Creator Franklin Leonard About this year's Oscar nominations earlier this morning a read a piece in the Guardian about how award. Nominations granted people of Color especially women are often for subservient roles like slaves nannies maids. And that's movies like twelve years a slave that help babble even Roma g think there's some truth in that for the few women and women of color who are recognized they play a certain kinds of part and not another kind of role Yeah I think it's pretty arguable. You look at the list of women of color that have been nominated in London You know I suppose. In theory those nomination is progress because She's not playing a slave. The entire time in actually is playing a freedom fighter rescue slaves but no I look I think that there is again and there are some by a large percentage of certain demographics of American culture and really sort of Western culture culture about what role is appropriate for women specifically women of Color. They are far more comfortable with women in those roles than they are. If you stray too far afield and I suspect Jennifer Lopez playing a stripper gets one over on the men that she is supposed to be dancing for left left. Some significant percentage of members who the Kademi uncomfortable since actors are by far the biggest block of Academy voters. Why do the Oscar? Nominations differ from the screen actors guild. which nominated Jamie Foxx from just mercy the Peter Neon go from us and Jennifer Lopez from hustlers I suspect it's age. I I again this. I'm I'm not an expert on this. You can probably correct me if I'm wrong. But the threshold to join SAG is a lot lower in terms of career accomplishment than the threshold to join the academy and therefore it sort of seems inevitable that the academy voters are probably at least the mean significantly older than your average Sag goater and given the changes that have happened in the industry particularly over the last twenty years. I suspect that has something to do with the different nominations. The academy to a certain extent stint can only recognize movies that get made even if Oscar voters still ignored a lot of great work from underrepresented filmmakers and actors. Now you've worked as a creative executive. I can Hollywood so from where you sat on that side of the table. What needs to change in the kinds of movies that are made and who gets to make them so the academy voters voters at least can pick from a wider pool of eligible performances? Films having the same changes that needs to be made in any hiring environment where there's endemic matthias you know. We need to hire a labor force. That's more representative of the culture. As a whole we need to empower them to tell the stories. If they're most excited about telling we you need to make sure they have the resources to tell those stories well And then I think that combined with the changing demographics of the academy membership. I think you'd see a real shift over time in what gets awarded. I think it's really important to remember that you know the reason this conversation sort of pivots around the academy as bad as the time. I'm during the year when the industry is the most visible to the world and I think that it's the time when you know they're they're they're the most outside pressure can be exerted and it's it's the clearest opportunity community to make these cases right that no women were nominated for best director. It's a lot easier to understand that than it is to understand that ninety percent of the movies that are directed a studios are directed by men by so. I think that that's why this conversation happens around this time of year but the real issue and the one that matters is who Who tells the stories of our time? Do they have the resources to tell them. And do they have the autonomy to tell them as they see fit. So let me ask you this last question. We know that the academy I suspect is probably a little mortified. That only one person of color was nominated in the acting races and that no women were many directors. Is it going to be same as it always was the year from now two years from now. How quickly are we not going to be having this conversation? You know I think that the end of the day we're doing with small data sets and you know the IT. It takes a long time to make movies put movies into the marketplace and then run them through the award season so you know even if everything changed as of today we probably wouldn't be looking at a major change until twenty twenty two and as we all know Those changes tend to be even more glacial than the industry. So it's hard to say you know hopefully within this decade Lord knows. I'm going to do everything to make sure it happens faster. Franklin Leonard is the creator of the blacklist. His piece in the Washington Post is called the twenty twenty Oscar Oscar. Nominations didn't have to look like this. Franklin thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thanks for having

It is stupid looking kind of like like stupid like cool like right. Well that's why the arrest is bad. It's not wild enough. No Q eight is ugly. It's in the wrong ways and then in the ways that it's Lamborghini it's ugly so I'm going to drive the IRS. Q eight the the skate through the risk eight and that's essentially just an interest that's an irony with like a good pretty good. I mean if that's just a better looking than that q eight with Oh really really. This looks lovely. Yeah this looks de- life. Oh is this is this actual. Is that accurate. You think says Nurburgring one is probably accurate attack. That looks fucking awesome. It's this is just kind of like a bigger ARA six kind of. That's kind of cool. Fuck with that. I mean I know that everybody. Everybody doesn't have the money or not. Everybody has the money to go out and buy. Rs We all do but obviously okay. I'm the among one poor. You don't have emerald in your pockets. Throw I got these emeralds right here diamonds mccollum but anyways there's just something really weird about getting into the regular Qa and it's just not interesting to drive it's because it's a the base engine. Yeah not that powerful almost our that they should have just started with the S. Eight are the where the two liter the four cylinder. That's like the no they couldn't ably supercharged. v Six four engine or something three hundred whatever horsepower but you know the R S Q eight. I I mean it's the same six hundred whatever right. Yeah Twin Turbo v Eight. I mean okay. So they got a super fast. Of course the regular one is boring shit to drive and wrangler taking the regular ones of anything. Are that accord. You were just talking about this. Morning is yet to drive. Guess what because it's not six hundred horsepower. Six hundred if if it was six hundred horsepower. Six hundred horsepower accord was delightful. Something busy Moto would do right. And it'll be fun as hell probably. Yeah but like that's how you make a boring car like this fast like you. How could build a really exciting car? That didn't need to have six hundred horsepower. Yeah but it wouldn't be fifty four hundred pounds. I assure you or whatever the this has got to be five thousand pounds. It's going to be a heavy boy. Isn't the fifty fifty six fifty seven really. Yeah I think so as shonky boy curb see Lambo car quotes if this is forty eight. Fifty is that right. Yeah since forty s back backed up by Wikipedia Let's find motor trend. They way they're cars car driver ways cars too. Don't they Maybe maybe I think the way the car it depends is the first of this is I drive. Mother factor. Whatever let's go with forty eight fifty fifty four hundred forty I five thousand with with a driver? Yeah that's heavy Where we go with that? Where are we going with q eight? I was just saying the sorry. The car looks like it needs to have more powers just got that style. Does the regular q eight have the same muscle quite but basically hang on A. It looks a little bit much more muscular with with the RS. I'm sure it does the. Rs Six is like widened three and a half inches the regular Qa is kind of good looking. It's good looking. It's just it's it's just whatever. It's a regular crossover pretty much. I'm so bummed. There's a bus bombed that what we're getting is fast crossovers and a plethora of two hundred thousand dollars supercars with dual clutches and like nothing great in the forty thousand dollars sports car space right now. I'm really not three. Fifty used ones no nothing that doesn't count when they're used for any generation for forty grand in the US market. But like you know the middle is disappearing. Yeah it's all going to performance. SUV's because the middle fucking the infrastructure the structure is crumbling and we all want road travel and we all want a ride quality and whatever shitty tarmac every day unless you talk to Cadillac which thinks it's going to twenty four and twenty six inches standard and you're like are you fucking kidding me. I was really I think. I hope this isn't embargo breaking and be well. Let's just assume it's not considering the RS. Six had twenty two inch rims. I was surprised that the ride quality really good I hope that doesn't have. It doesn't embargo break doesn't have a little meat on the tire. Not a whole lot. Phillip got probably thirty series tires. Maybe but like tires are. They're coming a long way in in terms of like spring back. And Yeah it's not forge wheels. which are a little lighter? Okay helps but I don't want to get to our six sorry. Just don't break the drive across the not worth the Was it the Maserati Levante. Tra- Feio has twenty two cents or twenty three said twenty. Three's that I was. Driving is big and has seventeen and a half inch breaks which are whereas six also got the early two thousands where we all thought like nineteen or two big Joe and then twenty six twenty two p where people people are putting him on like escalating and everyone is just like this is great. Yeah they were so proud of twenties they would put the twenty on the side of the car. Yeah with the two little Hashes for also the thought I also had a five hundred horsepower car in two thousand six. That was like crazy. How fast you know what I mean? It was five hundred is nothing. Yeah Way A to easy to come by now. Yeah I mean there was that like mental readjustment when the Veyron came out. Okay thousand horsepower. Is the big SUPERCAR number. But then we go to you know so many more vehicles having turbochargers and gasoline direct injection and all of that system. Yeah it's three hundred horsepower in a family sedan the The the scale at which they've been able to like ramp up the power..

"woodard" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"So his star. In the world of piracy is really unusual. He actually had his ship which he called revenge built and outfitted with cannons, the local Barbados shipyard. And he started that around seventeen sixteen Colin Woodard, who is the author of the book, the Republic of pirates posits that bonnet likely told people the ship was intended for a legitimate privateer in plan, and I know to some people privateer piracy have sort of become a little bit interchangeable. But there is a nuance of difference there. So just in case, you do not know the distinction is that privateers are acting on behalf of governing nation while pirates don't really answer to anybody. But their methods are virtually identical in many cases, which has kind of fueled the confusion of the interchangeability of those words in any case instead of contracting with the government. Bonnet made a nighttime departure on the ship revenge in April of seventeen seventeen and under. Cover of night. He had he headed toward North America. Calling himself captain Edwards in this is a good time to mention that bonnet had no knowledge about seafaring. He was really sort of a land Lubber. And so it's unusual and bizarre. It just kind of feeds that whole image of him as one of those like why did you do this? You're making a really rash decision. Even though he clearly had planned ahead to some degree. Well, and it's also unusual in that most pirates would start their career in piracy by commandeering another vessel. They would steal somebody else's ship. But he went and built one financed and paid for everything himself or maybe with this loan from before. Yeah. Any I headed for the Virginia coast, and he actually successfully took several ships. But it's probably the seventy men on his crude that really should get the credit for that initial success. Because some of them were pretty experienced pirates. And it's unlikely that he really had much in the way of leadership skills since he didn't know seafaring had never been pirating before. This episode of stuffy missed in history. Classes brought to you by Madison read a couple of times in my life. I've spent the time and money going to a salon and getting my hair colored usually for some kind of special occasion.
