The History of Animal Trials

The History of Animal Trials

"According to author ep evans in the criminal persecution and capital punishment of animals. There were two types of animal. Trials are strengthen and their process. Their straw phin were for capital crimes. Which would warrant the death penalty. I e homicide usually committed by pigs horses and other larger domesticated animals which were presided. Over by a secular tribunal. Their processor were judicial proceedings in ecclesiastical courts against vermin like rats mice locusts and weevils the object being to spell the vermin from the orchards. Vineyards and croplands. They were eating by means of exile extra schism or excommunication in sixteen fifty. Four sentences were handed down against of locusts in a spanish obvious. Santamaria the last sentence calling for the locusts excommunication and in order for them to leave the region in the next fourteen hours bishop alonzo de madrid excommunicated another plague of locusts condemning them to confinement in a cave and a bishop in cordova excommunicated a flock of swallows that had set up shop inside their parish. These were at best here. Eric victories just to make the people feel better. While evans's book lists nearly two hundred such cases the animals in their process cases never really seemed bothered by the ruling domestic animals. Barely listen to us. What do we expect. The wild wants to do either way. It was thought to be important that the animals have day in court. Why not just exterminate the offending critters. We're pretty good at that. Since even weevils and rats were considered god's creatures the destruction they caused must also have been part of the plan so destroying them would be an act against god's will but if the animals were tried in a church court and excommunicated or otherwise condemned then it was kind of okay for example in the fourteen eighties. The cardinal bishop of autun in france ruled against some slugs that were ruining the estate grounds under his purview. Ordered that for three days announcements be made to the slugs that they were to leave the area or be cursed. They didn't leave so it was game on for the gardeners to get rid of them. On purely legal side of things were the cases against livestock typically for murder. Apparently pigs are just mad for murder at least when it comes to humans and most cases involved them eating the victim whole or in part. This was a time when both animals and children might freely roam through fields and streets and accidents did happen. Pigs may not eat everything as people think but they will taste everything and god help you. If they find out your made of meat it reminds me of a bit from zora. Neale hurston story where the family sow gets into the kitchen where toddlers zora is alone and her mother panics. Even though the sal was less interested in eating. Mrs hurston baby than the other way around evans describes one fairly typical case from thirteen. Seventy nine in which two herds of swine were feeding together. When suddenly three pigs became agitated and charged the swine. Master's son who died from his injuries. All of the pigs from both herds were tried and fort after due process of law were condemned to death on appeal. All but the three instigating piggies were later pardoned. The courts really do seem to have put effort to try animals in the same way they would humans which is less woke than it. Sounds when you remember how readily the death sentence was handed out in those days. I've never tried to hang a pig. But given their incredibly muscular necks. I imagine it doesn't go easily. Also high ranking in the crimes animals could be charged with was bestiality. Although those cases were usually known to go in the animals favor both the human and the animal might be put to death but sometimes the case could be made that the animal was not at fault as it didn't consent to participate in the act so it wasn't punished if they were convicted. The animal might actually be imprisoned with the human who got them in the mess in the first place. In those cases the owner of the animal was charged for the animals care and feeding as a sort of second hand punishment for as much as. I'd like to say that animal. Trials are brutish fossil symbolic of a decayed era gratefully forgotten and i've got stickers for anyone who can identify that movie quote without googling it cases persistently pop up even in more recent times in tennessee in nineteen sixteen. An elephant named. Mary murdered her trainer. The strangest verse of the cell block tango ever and was hanged with crane in nigeria. In two thousand nine a goat was arrested. After a mob of vigilantes told police it was a shape shifting car thief no word on how that case turned out of all the creatures critters and creepy crawlies that plagued late medieval france. None could hold a candle to the weevil ricochets artists not to be confused with the palmetto. Weevil rinca forests fabricius the largest weevil species. You might say are. Eras is the lesser of two evils. Working the first complaint against the insects was made by a group of grape growers in fifteen forty five which resulted in a proclamation for the public to atone for their sins in hopes that the weevils would leave and it worked a generation later though the weevils returned and the town was forced to take them to court lawyer. Antoine filial was appointed the weevils public defender after all. It's hard to carry cash in carapace. So they reason. The weevils wouldn't be able to pay for representation feel argued that his clients had been placed on earth by god along with the food that they needed to survive. And it wasn't the bugs fault at that food happened to belong to some local farmers. The prosecution who i will picture being played by sam waterston and his glorious eyebrows contended that animals are meant to be subordinate to man and the weevils towing the line. The villagers believed their sins. Brought the pests. But the pests were part of god's plan but but humans are supposed to have dominion over animals so they should be able to do with them as they darn well please this back and forth. Stalemate is the central theological paradox of animal trials. Maybe i'll recast the da as linus roache.

If you're one of the agents that's been feeding your competitor is zillow as they've been essentially spending up to become a you know a broker down the street. That's going to try to take your business well in you didn't listen. You kept on spending money with them. Because you were didn't know how to generate your own byerly it's while you're gonna unfortunately probably suffered the worst because what we're saying this again. What we've been telling you guys about for years now is zo. Inevitably was going to get in the brokerage business. They had to continue just show value to their shareholders. There's only so many different parallels they could be getting into in the selling agent space selling agent leads space and of course they're going to get to the brokerage business and when they pivoted aggressively towards the buyer space jillian. I said straight up you past. Podcast there is zero chance. They're not gonna be getting into the real estate brokerage business because we knew and you guys should hopefully know by now that one of the primary benefits of the airspace as it turns off a lot of it creates a lot of Seller leads in those seller leads. Then you run an ad for an eye buyer type situation where seller can wholesaler house or sell it at a discount convenience fee as jillian coined it to sell the house without the normal. You know. let's be honest. Hassles of retailing. A house unless sellers are gonna be willing to do that. They had the cash flow and they can maybe leave a couple twenty grand or thirty grand on the table and not have to deal with all the you know the showings and the conditioning of the house. And all that. Yeah a lot of people are gonna be willing to pay that and you should not be surprised because very rarely despite what you might think very rarely is the most important thing to the seller. The price mo- sellers most everyone you included. Listeners are more focused on essentially stress-free convenience hassle free. And you're gonna be more than willing to pay for that. And that's what these i- buyers represent to consumers but our focus has always been agents brokerage the actual real estate industry boots on the ground entrepreneurs of you folks so we've been warning you that it's inevitable that zillow was going to get into the brokerage business and of course they are now in the brokerage business and they're going to be coming to a hypothetical street corner either real or virtual near you sometime soon. It's going to be called zillow homes. This is not made up. This is not speculative it will be zillow homes right and so what is the advantage that zola has in the marketplace huge advantage. Many places in the country people were often refer to searching for a house on line. they don't even say searching their replaced it with the words zillow ing going to zillow zillow has created a really relatively short period of time a stellar brand and from a consumer perspective their interface. And let's give credit where credit is due. They have become a very very effective company. That's servicing consumers right so the consumer interface on their app and their phone is vastly superior to anything else. That's out there including realtor dot com. And you know we can bemoan history. Oh we want to but the reality of it is that is what it is so now that zillow is officially in the brokerage business. And they're going to be competing with you. I want to be very clear case. We have not been clear about this before one of the main benefits of running an eye by our program from a lead generation perspective is. You're going to get a lot of sellers that would consider the buyer be willing to pay the convenience fee then decide not to decide to retail the house. Now a lot of you are aware again. Hopefully you are aware because you've been listening to us. That zillow is then going to be feeding those resale leads to their in-house agents and then they're going to be listing those resales in some markets. They're still selling those leads to agents at like a ridiculous referral th-they but that's going to be ending soon. So what you're going to be looking at is the sea change in the way essentially zillow interacts with you. Because they're taking the gloves off and you're going to see they've had dig gnarly fists hiding underneath those nice little velvet gloves for over fourteen years now and you've just not even wanted to realize it. Now why did you have realized that you just didn't care because you didn't know of any other way to generate your own business because you didn't know how to generate listing leads zillow's achilles heel has always been that they have to essentially piece the real estate industry because at the time they weren't a real estate brokerage and they had then they had like i think was julie fiber hundred or thousand remember individual relationships with individual brokerages to get their individual listings fees. So zora had to go out to the marketplace and go directly to brokers and sort of bypass the whole system so they can have listings on their site but that was a competitive disadvantage them because realtor dot com always had the newest listings. 'cause realtor dot com obviously was plugged into all the molasses. Guys understand

Top 5 High-Concept Horror, Bad Hair, The Wolf Of Snow Hollow

"Welcome to film spotting Josh we grew up in the eighties we were blessed with a lot of things including the Golden Age of the high-concept movie but I know there are some people listening who are wondering what this phrase really means. We will certainly defined in more detail as we get into our top five here in a little bit but our producer, Sam has a good thought. If the premise of your movie is right there in the title. That's pretty much dead giveaway that it's a high concept movie snakes on a plane there. You know maybe the platonic ideal of high-concept movie, right? That's it right there. If all you gotta do is tell someone the title and they understand everything the movie is about it's probably using a high concept. Yes. Snakes on a plane maybe at times scary in its own way, not exactly a horror movie a longtime listener on twitter Charles Canzoneri was following a similar line of thinking he said invasion of the body snatchers night of the living dead. The. Those titles kind of say it all too. Don't they Josh Yeah. We'll. We'll kind of get into exactly the way you and I at least defined this, but you could make an argument for those for sure we will get to our picks here in a moment but first we did want to spend a couple of minutes on the movie that inspired the list Justin. Simians new bad hair. So yeah the bad hair of the title here is A. Bloodthirsty, we've that the star, the movie L. Lorraine's Anna She unwittingly submits to as part of plot her attempts really to get ahead at this black entertainment network sort of an MTV style network she works at this is set in nineteen, eighty nine we should say so she's been there awhile she's been overworked underpaid largely ignored and and sees a new look as perhaps a way forward. Now, Simeon directed two thousand fourteen dear white people and he created the TV spinoff to he takes the college set racial identity satire of that earlier film and amps it up here Yes. There are some really gnarly murders to this definitely counts as a horror film. He layers in some observations about assimilation and authenticity in that era late eighties, early nineties. Let's clip. Anna. Does your hair. No. We. Aren't you tired of it. All the stairs you get walk into the army lobby everyone wondering why you're here. If you went to any other floor in the tower for job interview. You wouldn't get past reception. And you know that. Sisters get fired lesson every day. have. Music people have certain expectations and my girls need to flow freely. Wonder. You want to be one of my girls. Yes. that. Is L. Lorraine's Anna with Vanessa Williams as her CEO. Zora Josh you did like Dear White People Justin Simians debut film as you mentioned in fact, nominated for a golden brick here on film spotting back in two thousand fourteen. What did you think of that? Hair I kinda loved it actually Really Yeah it's it's pretty insane and you know not a perfect film by any means in some in some ways an experiment in genre for Simeone, you can tell feeling his way and having some fun with the horror comedy elements here, but you know what? I really wished. Adam. Is that I. I mean obviously nowadays, we wish we can see anything with a full theater, but this thing really would have benefited from a very loud a very lively audience preferably like maybe around midnight something like that I think then you could get into the vibe of the film a bit more easily than say just you know watching it on Hulu at home but I still had fun with it. I think what Simeon does in terms of some of the extreme camera angles and the slow zooms there. That are a little insidious There's a great scene where Anna is at the salon getting. About to get the we've and she's kind of walking through this hallway of hair samples that is probably going to haunt my dreams. I think not only the way it's filmed but remember that old seinfeld bid about like when you find hair and things something about like if it's on our heads everyone, you know it's completely normal everyone loves it. But the minute it's removed from your head everyone freaks out that seeing like totally captured that for me So yeah, I think this works as horror I think the main performance here's pretty strong by lorraine and I think there's a lot of fun comic performances going. On along the edges here from people like Jay Ferrell Lean Awaith James Vanderbeek of all people who really doing a Don Johnson Miami Vice era performance I think the setting the eighty nine setting added a lot for me. Just kind of remembering that I don't know if it's like Yo MTV raps I'm sure there's a different countdown show around then the capture, the vibe of that really. Well, I think here even give us a music video and original music video with Kelly Rowland playing this. Pop Star. Hip, hop star who's kind of a mixture I don't know tell me what you think I was getting like. Janet. Jackson slash. Paula Abdul feel from that music video. So that was fun. There's a lot of fun stuff here. Yeah.

Interview with Crime Writer Tom Vater: S. 6, Ep. 7 - burst 1

"My assumption is that you started with journalism in went into crime writing, but that beaker. Well actually. So happened hand in hand because. The first Arctic rival road for newspaper wasn't one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven. A paper in in Nepal and while I was there. I started thinking about rising my first novel, the Devil's Road to cap on do which then eventually came out in two thousand four. So it kind of happened at the same time but. But I I would say that you know between the pieces of fiction I right there along gaps for professional reasons and so Leap. Most of the time I have a day job. I do journalism and when I have some months often I can sit down and write a novel. So you're primarily a journalist who also does crime rate. Yeah you could say that I also own a a small publishing. House. crimewave press, which is a crime fiction imprint based in Hong Kong, which does mostly e books published about thirty two titles by. All sorts of oldest many of them from the US. So that's that's my Gig. So I, I kind of do three different things. I'm a crime fiction writer I I'm a very small press publisher with just one Papa and For crime, fiction novels in a bunch of short stories. And interested in the fact that you do so much stuff Most interested in in in the notion of of journalists going into this sort of thing because it tradition of journalists going into to fiction writing is historically something I've always been kind of intrigued by which is why I majored in journalism actually because of my interest in writing and in fiction general What made you choose crime fiction in particular as genre. There's probably several things. One is Zora fiction kind of makes it easy to because it's got many established rules and tropes and. Conventions and and so in that sense, it's it's quite conservative. You as a writer, there's another things to hold onto when you're writing your first novel because it has to go away. If you're GONNA follow crime fiction conventions if you write literary fiction, it's it seems at least to me when I was in my twenties, it seemed much disorienting and I didn't know how Radia how I would do that character development always stuff. But in in crime fiction, you know you have set in stock characters and set. Ways the plots develop and and and end in the end. So so I felt seventy with my best novel, the Devil's role to Kathmandu that I wanted to just ride to a sort of. Conventional Adventure story you know with. it's it's the story of four young guys who in nineteen, seventy five hit the hippie trail between between London Kathmandu and drive a van from London to come do an on the way they they. They make a drug deal that goes horribly wrong. And Is Disappears with the money. Mail saying how? Do and get your shouts the money. So that it's it's like a classic kind of adventure story that I wanted to create an I just how that. All Crime Fiction Travel Zara which would be the easiest way of turning that into a reality.

So what a way to start the fall? Oh, this is incredible. I'm glad to be a guest I am a fan of your work. In addition to just enjoying the book itself, I'm a fan of what you've been able to accomplish with well red black girl particularly in the way of used the platform of of a literary network to intentionally highlight narratives that are often ignored or ones that disappear from her collective consciousness as to African descended womanhood, the beauty and diversity of our voices experiences I enjoy speaking to people like yourself and I often wonder how is this person get here? What was their journey like? Why do they do what they do? So you ready to get into it? Yes, I am. Act One call to adventure. As a writer entrepreneur, of course, there are paths that we take and processes that we engage in to get us to where we are today, and sometimes we do that. Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in.

Why Fast Fashion Needs A Makeover

"In the last fifteen years, production of clothing has doubled, and at the same time, the number of times something is worn, has haft now that means that over eleven million garments landfill every week in the UK alone. Ultimately the novelty that fashion promises causing irreversible harm to both planet and people. This week's food for thought sees presenter and climate activist Venetia Amana. Join me to discuss why it's time for the wasteful fashion industry to clean up his act highlight Venetia Halloween. I think today's episode has been so I've Jew and I. Now I've been wanting to record it with you for so long. I think in a way we kickoff by discussing the fact that fashions wastefulness I mean. It's almost on a par with single. Use Plastic really if we're looking at the impact that it has. Yet it is. It's hugely not only wasteful industry, but also polluting industry. It's actually kind of looking to get into sustainability and thinking about the planet. functions of really good way to think about it, because it's very accessible way of thinking how a piece of clothing. Goes from from the US ultimately when you when you grow, grow, crops or something caught in, it comes from the S.. And then it's Picton. Soon and. All of these different things all these different prices which make up the supply chain before it's packed and delivered in lands on your doorstep Orlands in the shop future to buy but yet it. It's a huge. Carbon footprint the fashion industry. It's supposed to be one of the top two or three polluting industries and yeah, in terms of waste it's it's incredibly wasteful. we live in a timely fashion still of as. Something disposable fashion is incredibly cheap now and in other places, and because it's so cheap way often fail like it doesn't hold much significance, so we send a lot of close to landfill and a lot of clothing incinerated. All, at the same time, it's really really important is Barry Mind is that? Someone somewhere is paying. The paper will making a clothes or so, if not paid a living wage and eighty percent of them a female when we think about women's rights and bang feminists, we have to think about that with all cloudy, because we want to support all women right, and we want to support the woman who making all clouds goodness I mean. So many connections to what you've just said that intense of what I've done in my previous life. I'm thinking when I was at university and. I used to shop with these such and websites where claiming was so cheap, and I never made I never made a connection that it came from the earth I would I never even thought to the fact that impact to the environment and I definitely probably what I know I didn't. I didn't think about the chain of people and somebody somewhere that was involved with the price of making his clients and I. Think what you're doing on social media, environment is fabulous. You've recently raised Alana's with charity campaigns. You've been at the forefront to claim suggesting that the bronze behind them greenwashing customers. Could you delve into that I? A little bit? Yeah, absolutely. greenwashing as something that we say a lot in fashion, especially at the moment comes from the time whitewashing, which is basically when white people kind of whitewash industries like film, industry's takeover, different ways and Often, it's symbol creations when we as white people kind of commodified live. By coaches make are I might try and day and don't give credit where credit J. it's also kind of a marketing ploy, and it's the same with greenwashing companies often kind of telling us trying to tell us that during something good when they already notes. See this recently with kind of plastic auto companies telling US everything's okay, because that bottles are made from recycled plastic when Rabi. To bustles if we're in a position to do so like you know hair in. The U. K. is just refill will to right. It's like a much more money during it so with function. We see Fush Bruns. Greenwash. In lots of different ways and I, yeah I I've I've taken to social media to cool when it because. I have a when I want to use it and kind of tired of the nonsense, so bronze like eight am and Zora have a kind of conscious collections, so they'll bring out a small range of clothes that a made from various things like orange juice, pope and unical tears, or whatever is. And they tell us let's go, and I'm not gonNA deny that and say it's bad. It is good we should be using. Natural fibres when we might close, but the problem with Sutton fashion bruns. Is that sure that using a kind of planet friendly planet friendly dies and materials, but what about the people making the clothes and also? The share amount of clothing that them making doesn't make up for the good that I think the goods that doing concert. No point, not percent. If their entire business H. M. so is a drop in the ocean for want of a better phrase. On Yeah. I mean recently. We've seen a lot of charity in slogan, T. Shirts. During, the pandemic and this is this is very much a kind of. nuanced debates, and I I take quite a hard stance on it, but I I also really appreciate that. We have to look at both

Eight your leading Zora through the current turmoil. What kind of lessons can we gain? How aggressive or defensive should we be in moments market instability as we actually started the end of two thousand and seven, and so we lived through the two thousand and eight crisis, where the prevailing wisdom was, there was never gonNa to be any cash. Will you like it's over? It's over or were you? What was your mindset well? We didn't plan to start to. China recession the economy is starting to look really really good and We got a little lucky right. A little luck always helps along the way. We closed our series B. in the summer of Oh eight. And I think we had signed the term sheet. And then Lehman Brothers collapsed. And Economy starts shutting down a little worried for awhile. We actually wouldn't get the cash. I don't think we cut anybody, but we really spent about saying. How can we use resources? We have the people we have, and they just focus focus really on customers really needed what we were doing.

Scaling an Amazon Business to 8 Figures with Fernando Cruz of Marketplace Ops

"Ladies and gentlemen welcome bouts the amazing FBI? Paul Kasey placed beef. You base. Tell us alone fats. A lot of what we discussed is one of the US particularly as well. Today's guest is no exception. As phenomena crews of marketplace ops and Pixel Fi- they supercharge Amazon sales with bronze by managing their accounts amongst other things. And I'd Pixel fight as other things as well so warm. Welcome to the show. Thanks man appreciate you having me so no problem so I know that one of the things you've done creighton eight Vega Amazon brand yourself in a very short time. Is it three years that you've done something five years three as okay? So this obviously Quite the achievement. So that's the thing I want to dig into today but I want to put the angle of surviving and thriving in in difficult. Times obviously wearing unusual times right now and I think it's not a bad thing to create anyway a business. That's robust right in good times but particularly with excellent now so Tell me the basic story that obviously eight figures threes. That's that's an impressive numbers. Someone the basics. How did you arrive at that? Yeah I mean obviously? It was with the caveat that it's not during cove nineteen does a little bit easier but Yeah I mean you know. The story is my business partner and I were best friends from college. We we'd come from Tech. We had like a a background in kind of like high growth companies and a Yemi we each put in. I think a twenty grand into the business at the time and And we tried building actually like our own shop vice store for several months and we realized like Oh man this is really really hard finding customers getting into buying our website and we tried that Friday for about five months And then you know well. We decided to do what we're running out of money is. We're like okay. This was originally our passion project. And we're like okay. You know screw passion. We just need to make money because like identity Ended up having to live with your parents again and And that was kind of like a last resort in so we kinda works. Well what about this like selling stuff on Amazon were were buying everything there anyways like? Can you even do that? we found a course online like donald it And honesty we just pivoted like we didn't even a ton of time thinking about it is like this current business is not working And at the end of the day we don't want to go back and move in with our moms and so yeah I mean we. We didn't look back. I mean we were definitely a pretty lucky at Are A. We started with four products at the same time. And so that helped US learn a lot. I don't recommend that strategy For people who are starting out. I think it's probably better to go a little bit slower but you know again. We were running out of money. We need to figure stuff out and we hired a coach right in the beginning. I think that was super super helpful Just because he was already doing forty forty five grand a month But you know we're able to make so many less mistakes I we still don't get me wrong but by having that coach in your corner Hey you need to get used to giveaways You need to order more inventory. You need to do this unity. This and really helped us like learning the basics in the beginning and Yeah it was. It was Super Super Helpful. And then maybe like our six seven product was just like a home run and it basically we. We had to borrow money from family and friends just to order more inventory to keep in stock and so it was kind of Cinderella Story to begin with Where the parties that we started with those first four it okay. We discontinued most of them. We didn't reorder Tanaz. We learned a lot of lessons of niches that were too competitive But we we had some that were. We'd one that was a decent success in ended up dying a few months later but it was like okay. This really proves the model and second in that first month on Amazon. We did more than like five months on shoppers. I combined in Zora okay. This really works and so we just need to refine how we're choosing products And so we really started focusing on that area of the business because we knew that would cut I control how are futures specifically on Amazon? Yeah and then we ended up doing a little over two million that first year and then once we hit that home run product. We really started expanding That product line in in really focusing in that was kind of how we basically got to the ten million. We definitely borrowed a ton of money from family and friends. Kinda help us again like Placing those peos air shipping everything just because we couldn't Get everything done is really sloppy to be to be honest. We kinda like Stumbled our way through it But those kind of a lot of the story. Wow Okay so that does really quite the interesting story. I mean So I was going to ask you about an the capitalization Because obviously if you're editing to billion dollars in a year you're going to run out the amount of money you put into the machine to start with but I just wanted to just go out to the store. I mean very funny because he's also always I've got a new because studying ECOMMERCE leader with my friend Jason Miles. Who is a massive shoplift by fumble and is doing very very well without and help sort of Amazon base people to a pivot? Some of that business I would say shall proviso instincts have the opposite conversation where you find it really hard. What was it about the you've found so tricky with just briefly getting into. Yeah so I think Good question so at the time. And you know we're thinking very binary right and so we came from tech and so you know the tech business model is very clear right. You raise a lot of money. Needed grow faster than everyone else. Which means you spend a lot more You every round of of equity financing you kind of a you delete. Delete Yourself And hopefully at the end like you're successful and then you sell a huge amount of money you get a percentage of that and you make a ton of money and we'd seen our and we kind of had mixed feelings around that light. You know you you. You're starting business to be your own boss but by raising a venture capital you now have a boss and you hear all these stories of these. Ceo's get moved out of their own companies and so we very early on mid the distinction of life we bootstrap this company And so basically means not taking out like for US equity financing and so we were comfortable raising debt and a very specific thing but we found was. We were afraid of spending a lot of money on ads to be honest at the time that we weren't like comfortable spending on facebook or even like Amazon or this before we're on And so we're like okay. Well the best way to do it is to to build partnerships in that comes along with their background like I was the head of sales before But yet partnerships and then our with blogs so like doing seo content and stuff but because we were bootstrapped. Only a finite amount of money to start with. I think at least for us will we've found is the time that it tasted get a blog from like zero to having enough customers to generate enough. Income is too long and we were doing this. Full time That was our challenge if we kind of found a a more hybrid strategy. Which is we figured out paid ads so we could actually generate more customers a lot faster than I think. That would definitely worked on shop but it is something that we weren't really comfortable with the time to be totally honest And I think that's kind of wire shop if I was doomed from beginning it may sound like a funny question to somebody when get somebody on his massively successful in areas to US why they didn't decide whether another one I think it's important to follow the reality of somebody's story and not enough interesting In soon reality now I guess what happened in this that you you turned your cash into cash again quicker than the model that you were trying to follow was gone it in and spice the yet trying to because I think fulltime you can't wait for takeoff right Tell me about the next question. Sorry bothers buys thing. You've obviously got the success in terms of the revenue so we have to dig into the details How much money did you end up barring that first year if I may ask question yeah no? It's fine courtship so we borrowed originally? I WANNA say I bought a lot. I think it was maybe two hundred two hundred and fifty grand And so yeah. We went to like everyone that we knew that was high net worth. I think it started with like thirty from one friend. Thirty from one of our parents. I think it was. My Mom. Ed's start with sixty and it was. It was going really well in. We aware introducing more products in that. Funding is if you if your products take off you need more cash again to keep them in stock in so they kept doing really well and so we just kept Compounding our problem in so we can refinance out one of those thirty I think for like a hundred I would say in the first year. We probably raise two hundred grand in that first year.

Kashmiris struggle to get Coronavirus news in the wake of communications blackout by Indian government

"For many people like you. Perhaps stuck at home spending lots of time online. The nonstop flood of news about the pandemic might feel like information overload. Imagine though not being able to get any updates about Cova nineteen or how it's spreading or how to protect yourself. That's the reality right now for millions of people in indian-controlled Kashmir here's the world's Lydia Amana lead with that story is you who are. Vanni is an attorney in New York but in the wake of cove in nineteen. He's found himself being asked to play public health. Experts from time to time. People are very highly about the information. Vanni is originally from Kashmir a disputed region between India and Pakistan. He's still has lots of family there. I have my elderly parents. I am really worried about them. And my siblings worried. Because he says they haven't been able to get good information about cove. Nineteen the reason terrible Internet. It's been bad since August. That's when the Indian government crackdown on Kashmir and imposed a communications blackout. No Internet no phones. Nothing since then. The government has restored some access to the Internet. But it's really really slow. That's by von is family is constantly turning to him with questions about the corona virus. They are they are. They are very much confused about it. So a few days ago Vanni had an idea. He teamed up with a relative who works as a scientist for the CDC the Centers for Disease Control and made a short video social distancing. Turn GOING TO DUMP truck on your wireless wearable video. Which they posted on Youtube walks people through some basic information about the corona virus. Like how do you get it? And what can you do not to get it? Vanni says they made the file very low quality so Kashmiri with poor Internet connection could still watch it for many people. It took hours to download. My friends have told me that it has taken them indicted night. Some people couldn't view it at all. And there's all kinds of information that people across Kashmir can't get like updates from the world health organization videos on proper handwashing the latest news about where the virus is spreading so it's falling to people in Kashmir people like Heck Zubeir to fill in the gaps. My entire show is now about corona virus and do a four hour long show. Zubeir hosts the breakfast show for radio. Mir t ninety eight point three in Kashmir. Her shows usually pretty light with fun stories. Local celebrity guests occasionally news recently though. It's been all corona virus all the time because the internet speed is very very slow. We have to make sure that we do not leave out anything. We have to make sure that we give out information as much as we can. But that's really hard to do because she herself has trouble. Seeing the latest news and videos. Local officials are posting. I don't know how to do it without Internet. I genuinely don't she says other news outlets. Tv newspapers have also stepped up their corona virus coverage. But the situation is not ideal. People might miss a broadcast not rediscovery. They can't look things up on their own time. When you don't have the correct information what happens is misinformation that means rumors are spreading and people don't even know what their local government is doing to prevent the virus from spreading and that's caused a lot of panic. People are suffering in Kashmir. It's really hard for US mustard. Sarah is twenty six years old. She's a photographer in Kashmir. She's that almost everything is closed. Streets are empty. People have been asked to stay inside though sometimes. Zora says she can't help herself. She wants to go out and take photos but my mom stops me everytime she told me that down. Your car don't out. It's really hard one of the things that's really hard is feeling cut off. It's difficult to post on social media. People can't video chat with family members. Some people can't even text. We cannot do anything. People are really festive. There is anxiety every slow. Internet is also hurting the more than one million students forced to stay home. Schools have been closed for about two weeks now and there's no way to offer online. Classes people in Kashmir are not the only ones dealing with government imposed Internet restrictions. Right now that are happening in Ethiopia en Marche Bengladeshi according to the advocacy group access. Now many people are calling on these governments to restore Internet access because the slower the access the slower response to this pandemic

The Harlem Globetrotters

The Past and the Curious

The Harlem Globetrotters

"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

Iran In The News And On A Comedian's Mind

"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. Yesterday morning. We began again looking for an Iranian American creative type. Who could talk about possessing that identity? During these ten times our news clerk Andrea Gutierrez suggested Azzaro newer bosh a comedian whose bicultural identity is a key part of her stand up Act Zara. I am a feminist Muslim iranian-american. The American comedian. It doesn't always go that way. When Zora took her seat in our studio yesterday afternoon she hadn't heard the news that Iran had just launched missiles at American targets in Iraq? While oh yeah I didn't check the news today And I actually haven't been looking at the news because when the first mention of war with Iran came up I just they couldn't handle the click bait flare of headlines about my family and their lives lives so I just had to turn it off and wait for news from family members. Told me a little bit about your family coming to the states during the revolution where you grew up I was born. In Sacramento of my birth certificate. Is Public Record. Go look it up. My nuclear family lives here. When the Iranian Revolution broke out we couldn't go back And were left in a position much like we are in right now wondering what's the come When can we go back one? We'll things chill out. When can we see my grandma? I aunts uncles cousins and here we are again. I only went to Iran when I was fourteen and there was this window of time where things look like. Maybe they're working out. There was a feminist inclined. Leader her And things looked like maybe it's changing and I got to meet my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandma for the first time and I didn't WanNa leave the it was my first experience of just unconditional love as a teenager in a Nirvana era and we came back home and my dad came into my room and he said Were Staying Watch. Vh One and a catch up because because up until that point I was raised as though we were going to go back because my parents want me to experience a culture shock if we you went back and when my parents decided that we were for sure staying I wasn't at home in any culture and VH1 did help a lot. So I studied theater like you did at UC Berkeley. I ended up doing public radio. You ended up doing comedy. Is there a natural path from cal to what you're doing today. Oh absolutely I studied theater I studied Meta theater. The contracts that create a theater around us places that we don't see theater that are like the news and I just released a report on. Stand up comedy and all the things that we find funny and why it's like a farm-to-table field guide on jokes. Wchs you could find a pop culture. Collaborative website pop co lab dot org slash. Funny is funny and yeah I mean I don't know what's is it like for you to. I feel like anybody who studied theater right now. must feel a little bit out of body because there or is such a theater to everything going on right now that everything is performance in a way. Yes yeah I think that's true. Let me ask you this. I I studied theater and I did as a final project in one class. I had to do stand up comedy I bombed. Do you remember the first time that you went out and did stand up. Was it an open mic. Oh my God. I'll never forget how I was at a place called the Brainwash Caffeine Seabra Cisco it was Like A hazing For All comics. I mean you had to go to the brainwashed. I think people still do and I met Ali Wong. She started the same night as me. Wait Alley was going the first night her own stand up the same notice you yup. That's good company. And she killed it. I totally only bombed and I just wanted to try it again. And that's when I knew I was a comic. I think that's when you know. Is You bomb. And you're like I really WanNa try that again. People always think comics are brave. And I'm like no we have a deluded sense of optimism we're talking with comedians are a nor bash. I WANNA play a little bit from standup piece that you've done. I Say I'm Iranian. People get scared by this. I like to have fun with it. I like to sit in the front row of nuclear physics classes. Excuse me professor this plutonium the crates. I WanNa ask you not so much about that joke but about your own identity and how it became part of your comedy was that always always us. You know it's funny when you played that joke because about two weeks ago a friend of mine was like. Isn't this kind of getting a little old. And here we are With the whole new sense of stakes Identity so very soon in my career as a stand up comedian. I realized that if I don't say who who I am and what I believe in at the top of my set. Everyone will wonder the whole time. I'm talking about farts and WCHS and poop jokes and so whether I wanted to or not I had to understand my political identity and yet you wrote in The New York Times a couple of years ago about how some of your humor was received and how you felt a part of that narrative and this is what you wrote i. I tried to humanize Muslim families with my one woman show. All Atheists are Muslim showing the story of moving in with my white atheist college boyfriend and telling my parents about the message. The audience was meant to be left with was that if total nonbelievers and Muslims can find common ground then everyone in between should be able to unsurprisingly. None of this worked. Yeah because what would end up happening is after shows people would come up to me and say well. You're one of the good Muslims and that it's is that confirmation bias just they would just take me and relegate me to the part of their brain that accepted people and go back to demonizing everyone else. Let's explain the good Muslim versus the bad Muslim. Because that's part of what you talk about. How would you define a no win situation? The the things that make you acceptable or like a friend to one community is what demonize you to another things that make it with one group of people break it with another. There's no winning and regardless your character is up for question it's a witch trial. So what do you say to yourself. What is my role as comic? Do I not worry about the outcomes. How do you process those guns reactions? You know the most powerful the thing that I've come to realize for me is that it's never up to any one individual. I think the most important thing that we as Americans need to know is that we are part collective that we need community. We need infrastructure that there is not one strategy that there's narrative strategy there's cultural change their policy change there's infrastructural change we need all of it and all of it needs to be doing the work and I don't think that it's right to put all all of that weight on any one person's shoulders we all have a role to play and we need to do the best job we've ever done ever this year. You have a great title senior fellow on comedy for Social Change With the pop culture collaborative. What is that? And how are you you finding allies in what it is you're trying to do. I find allies with people who have intersecting experiences With me I am. I am a bisexual

Croatia's ruling conservatives to analyze loss of presidency

"And Croatia's former Prime Minister Zoran on Novic won his country's presidential elections this weekend. The center-left candidate beat the defending center-right incumbent Kalinda grubber Qatar in a second-round round runoff. Mr Milinovic takes the reins just as Croatia takes on the rotating presidency of the European Union at the time of huge change within the EU. So so how will he manageable. This Guy Delone ISM is multiples Balkans correspondent and I'm delighted to say. He joins me on the line now. A guy a very warm welcome. Tell us about this new the president that Croatia has yeah. He's not exactly a newcomer to Croatian politics. He's not a fresh face by any means. He was actually Prime Minister for five years between twenty one ten and two thousand fifteen when he was at that point the leader of the Social Democrat Party And he was emptied out in two thousand fifteen hundred along with his government. Ostensibly I think because he the Presided over the bulk of never ending recession and it lasted for six years this recession. Although he was at pains to point out during the presidential debate that during during his last quarter in power as prime minister of Croatia had started to grow again economically speaking. You know you described him. As centre-left you describe. Kalinda Gra Qatada which is as a centre right. These things are all relative in Croatian politics. you you have both sides appealing at these nationalist tendencies save which have still existed even despite the fact that Croatia achieved its independence during the homeland war of the Nineteen Ninety S. They still think it's A. It's a winner to to drum up nationalist rhetoric. And we certainly saw Mr Milosevic and also script Qatada Mitch doing that during the campaign. Indeed I mean many people were quite surprised the fact that Kalinda grab architectural which has lost the election given the fact that she was extremely popular in so many ways. And also talking about the populist and nationalist point of view many remember her the World Cup final in two thousand eighteen when she was closing cozying up Vladimir Putin. And that's quite a statement to make who can forget those scenes When Kalinda quarterback Catava gloriously decked out in the checkable Jersey of of of Croatia during the World Cup final? As I recall she didn't have an umbrella but some I'm funky was holding an umbrella over over Putin's had but she looks absolutely delighted with the fact Croatia we're in the final and creations enjoyed the fact that not only their country's footballers footballer's but also their country's head of state regaining such an international profile. And you saw many profiles of Qatada in the international press after after that she certainly gained international attention and that was a big boost to her personal popularity For a long while and for much of last year you would have said that she'd be a shoo-in career election because you've really got to do something hitting quite unfortunate in order to lose the presidency and Croatia because it isn't a role the tolls a lot of executive power by any means means it's really a figurehead slash ceremonial role. But she made some missteps. And I think the key one among them was she made some sort of alliance with the mayor of Zagreb Millan Bandage Pitch. Who is currently on trial for corruption? Not the first time that's happened to him and needs to be said. And if there's one thing that voters in Croatia a sensitive about it's the idea idea of politicians troughing it at their expense and that seems to be in the biggest misstep which hit her popularity that she was in second place in in the first round of this. The presidential election to Mr Milosevic many people thought hoover up the right wing votes in in the second round. But it seems that wasn't the case against Milosevic assuming the presidency and a k next month I think as you said the largely ceremonial role but he does have influence when it comes to foreign policy and defense and security plus last Wednesday. Croatia took up the reins in terms of being the The EU presidency. It's assumed the six-month rotating position and has described itself. Is it being a historic event CRATIA and the most difficult test of its maturity since independence. That's an enormous job. I think that's actually Ahah comment because the issue we've seen had highlighted during the presidential campaign is the two candidates still hawking back to the nineteen ninety s and there was a think tank here in Slovenia which was looking at the issue and it said that the the both candidates were trying to prove which was the biggest Croat. And that's that's rather problematic when you think this is now almost thirty years on from the country's independence it's twenty five years on from the end of the homeland wars. They call it in Croatia unless still trying to prove who's more Croat than the other. The country needs to move beyond that and taking on the presidency of the European Union. Even if it's only for six months is a chance to show that it can be bigger than that and it does have an excellent opportunity to show that it can put all of these ethnic and regional squabbles. Behind it because of course the question of the expansion of the European Union into the Western Balkans is a really big live issue. Both Serbia and Montenegro are in membership negotiations. Albania north Macedonia would dearly like to be and would be were it not for manual macron. Vetoing them a couple of months ago so Croatia really doesn't have an opportunity here to stand up and say it'll be better for all of us in this region and in Europe as a whole if we he gets on the right track with these negotiations. This is the K. Isn't it guy the fact that when you do assume the EU presidency. You almost have to put your national interest to one side and thinking linkin terms of the greater good of the block. How capable do you think Croatia will be in trying this this task given the fact that it's issues of populism listen? Nationalism Migration border control a such a sticky issue for them. I don't want to make Zora Milosevic out to be an angel. He isn't he's he said. A nasty things about Serbia. Bosnia and Croatia has been locked in a border dispute with Slovenia a decades now However the fact that people wanted to vote for him him who is as we settle sensibly centre-left rather than Kalinda robot Qatada? He was supported by a right-wing Nationalist Party the party which founded Croatia the HD Zad that may be indicates that the voters think that they need to do something else. Now that this would be optimistic slammed on this it has to be said but perhaps people are thinking well. It is now time to move beyond that. The the arguments the politics and the ethnic arguments of the nineteen ninety s and try something different so so she would be optimistic in the New Year to think of Croatia moving in that direction. Why not thank you very much? Indeed guide

On a break-up at break-up or work is losing now now so it's usually the relationships and and and work I hear conversations all the time about about work issues and and the political implications and you know there's so many people that aren't really coming from their offense -tic self self and it takes work it does take work it takes work to get to who you really are you know peeling the onion taking its and peeling it peeling it and I think it's a lifelong process. I believe it's a lifelong process. Absolutely I mean I haven't said your age and I hope you don't mind if I say your age may have your permission. My permission. Zora is eighty nine. She's she's on her ninetieth year. Can you believe it. No no I don't believe and you have a lot experience so you know a lot of you know you haven't had a boring life. That is I sure. Yeah I haven't either life's make mantle on live that's right and that's what life is all about Out having fun learning and helping absolutely dealing with the challenges. Yeah isn't isn't always easy. nope always is real. Daddy never promised you a rose garden. Haven't thought about that long time. Yeah yeah well but you take it as it comes in one step at a time one step at a time. So so what else do you WanNa talk about with feelings with feeling will will they said before the basically is most of US group with our bad sad matter glad right. I don't know the author was the known of a bit. These feelings like bad. The feelings that come officer confused rejected critical. A total rage angry hostile and hurt and then a from batter discouraged bewildered judgmental. That's a big win for Judge Melville. Yeah no everybody's judgmental and you know I. I say that when I'm saying when I talk about unconditional love. We have to stop judging ourselves. I hope so much you know because then you then the next step is judging others you know and yeah I catch myself. Judging in people and it's like wait a minute stop this is you know why am I judging them. I mean why fits Pearl City. Why is irrelevant question? Okay effect I tell my client that the bad word. You can use the Y.. Yeah what do you get out of doing this or how does how does this help you write. What power better question? What in how? Yeah that makes sense definitely so But we're often Some way as skeptical irritated you vengeful furious Selfish that were Jealous Jealous. Oh Yeah I don't like jealousy stay. I've had well. My mother was a jealous person. I have had a lot of jealous people in my life and I hate it i. I don't like to use that that work because it's a strong word. Hate is okay. It's right it's just description you know but I don't like it because it's such a waste of energy you know I should. I'M GONNA be happy for people when they're successful or you know doing not not. So what. Yeah that's true and should is another bad word would or should learn that a long time I used to have a bumper sticker around my car. Don't should be don't should meet. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean. Yeah because that's putting conditions right. It was yes. And that's why I say you know a lot of people don't understand what unconditional love is and it's there's there's so many things to it but it takes exercise it takes practice to watch. We'll live animals. Yeah Ah I mean that's an example. That's the best example and and and if we can exercise that with first ourselves as we can't love anybody else if we don't love ourselves absolutely and I think of of my cat that's living with me she comes in and I get up out of bed in the morning and I'll go into the bathroom author. She comes and she puts herself on my feet and looks up at me and then she'll go down in the other room inch. Look she'll look at me. I mean it's so adoring and so loving I just melt. I just melt hunting when I come home. And details rank. And the whole Bobby's well the whole body. Are you kidding. Yeah DEFCON puts every ounce into it witnessed it yet so anyway so that what. What what else can we share out? Another one house powerful when we I. I'm not talking about control when I see powerful to Jerry different from driving controls. The it's feeling my own power being compel empowered and the only way to do that is take responsibility for myself. That's a huge one that let's see for women again. That is huge taking responsibility for your actions for your thoughts. You Know I. I have preached preached take heed and will end really. Pay attention to the mind. Talk that you have in in every moment you know because we do run Bhai unconscious miss our sub conscious. But but when you start getting into that pattern of paying attention to what you're saying to yourself you know I mean I hear things all the time about on how people put themselves down. But it's mine chatter in that's unhealthy. Don't stop doing that. Stop doing that. And and and just like I can remember. Oh It's been twenty away over twenty years ago I caught myself and this is when I was involved altered with the signs of Mine Church and I was doing a lot of deep therapy than and I start thinking some negative thoughts about myself growth and I remember screaming out loud. I catch myself and I started doing that. And now it's like a switch. You know you just stop so you won't feed that low self self-esteem have to keep you know. Just stop you know. It's a switch. There is a switch. Well when I tell clients. They use the cognitive behavioral. Save Your old thing. I've ever been trick. They've put on the rubber band Catch yourself doing that. Yeah Yeah don't pull it out and snappy hurt yourself just enough just enough to remind yourself that you don't have to do that and change. That thought yeah. Well that's why you know I'd say Oh. Yeah you know. I mean take the time to do that to change aged that that behavior catching cheats absolutely. Yeah whatever works yeah exactly. It's fine. Whatever works works for you to cheese actually exactly and and feel good a minute? Absolutely I think it was funny. I'd start laughing at myself so if I saw if I if I had a film of myself I would really start laughing. I think it's great the discovery. Discover that well I guess I wanted to set a good healthy example for my daughter and she was just a baby then she was an infant. I thought I was so committed to setting an example. Now I hope she comes back she you will see well timing helps you find your stuff herself have to find their own path. Yup Yup Yup and. I know I'm a strong person. Just like you couldn't Good role models. You know. Kids need that. Yeah Oh boy more than ever than ever because they're not gonna get it. Externally Turnley was blessed with having to surrogate mothers in growing up and and I still have more in year one of them and I have a an she was gonna come tonight but she didn't she. I guess she wasn't able to make it. She's eighty five. Oh and she wanted to meet. You liked me. I'm sorry she didn't make it. But you know shoe I think the heat it probably be. I saw at lunchtime today and I think the heat but You know I've been blessed to have of some surrogate mothers there for me because my mother wasn't there for me I mean she did the best she could.

She always knew that she wanted to study psychology and was accepted at UCLA. Zora head ahead four adult children one boy and three girls and were upwardly mobile. They were upper-middle-class middle-class Julie Somatic therapy after graduating. She took herself to England Italy Greece and Israel where she worked on an archaeologist. arkell logical dig. She loved playing in the dirt. She was on her own and felt really alive. Live in Israel. She decided that she wanted to go. Move there an steady ancient Jewish art when she came back to the US. She told told her husband and asked him to go with her. The kids were all grown. Then Zora lived in Jerusalem and started her art history studies at the Hebrew University. Obviously her husband didn't go with her thanks to her previous counseling experience and Sora eventually worked in the Welfare Department of in child protective services in Ashkelon. I'm sorry if I say that it wrong Israel. She got her M S W from the Hebrew University. She came back to the states and to get her psych degree at Antea University in Ohio which had a satellite campus in San Francisco which had some Matic's program Syrup came back to her birthplace and graduated with an Ma in clinical psychology with an emphasis on semantics. She got her Carell M. F. T. in Eighteen Surrey nineteen eighty-seven she isn't that old. She may be eighty nine. But she's not that battled Zora L.. cokie was has now been a marriage and family therapist with private practice in San Franscisco. She specializes in working with difficult people and with those who must deal with them she probably got into this specialty because she has been labeled difficult and knows what does and doesn't work for her she values working with those who have very challenging issues. These include trauma. PTSD addiction abuse and domestic violence. She has four-legged co therapist. WHOSE NAME IS DAFA in Hebrew? That means I told him to do something and Dafa he did. Just the the opposite which can define difficult person and or challenging situation. Welcome welcome welcome Zara era. I'm so glad that you could make it. Finally I could make two. Oh well given an intro on your her fabulous life and before we dig into the wonderful topic of of dealing with an awareness around feelings. I dislike you. To tell us where where well we already know years San Franciscan original San Franciscan NCIS can. And but I know that. You almost married Lenny. Bruce can you just kind of tell us a little bit about Pat. I met him because his father stepmother moved to. La and his in his father's brother married my dad's discussing New York Cam. Action was there to begin with like like that but it was. They got my parents being. There was a connection for them. If they didn't Know Anybody Eddie and his dad passed me five would go out with his son when he came into port. WHO's in the merchant marine at the time and I said sure to to Leonard Snyder deficit so he was a great dancer? So was this dad and so we went out and And then he got shipped out again and and he came back. I can't remember how much time we was gone that it was wartime. So we didn't have a problem anyway so wanted better with you. Is there help anyway. When I came back we continue to go out than the athlete Mariam and it has outrageous? Says he could be his. He warned asked me parents and you told the story might furious. Said no EH. So he left thing he'd be backed but I knew that he would have I consciously built the wall around myself just by I te brick. I was never allow myself to be hurt like that again. Life just went on in quick talking to my folks for three months even fast with thorny mountains. That's not very long. Actually when you think about these. I live with my aunt for a while for the summer to cool off Fresno in the summer. Thanks Yeah Oh my goodness anyway. So then I came back and Enrolled at UCLA has said right. So so we know you've been on this path of psychology for quite a while and I think it must be an intuitive and natural gift that you have well thank you for that. I lean well. You've been doing it for a long. Yeah well but I had a good introduction to it through working on lifeline. In San Diego was a crisis intervention drug prevention venture program for teens in the sixties and our basic training was gestalt and The therapists to that's headed said very frequently. You know you have to lose your mind and come to your senses so even though I didn't sit in the hot seat for hope for a year I it probably changes inches. I changed a lot sure. The walls started started coming out. Yeah so and then and how long was it before you got married to your four. Kept Harry One thousand nine hundred forty eight okay. Yeah that's kind of defended story too. I was sure if I wasn't married by the time I was twenty. Had being old name those date so I got married in October. Bring turn twenty one in November. Just made what we do ourselves but you have four children. Older adult children are dealt kilter now boy and three girls. Yeah yeah so I know we want to talk about feelings feelings and I think it is really a huge subject since ideal with millennials. A Lot I think that a lot of them don't are not really dealing with their feelings Because they're in the computer in their phone all the time so anyway. Let's talk about this now. They're not in their feelings. Could probably their parents were either in were raised with with a very zimet feeling vocabulary. We're mad thad batter. Glad and they're a whole lot more feeling thinks that in fact if we can bring the camera into this the feeling we uh-huh and that's not all the feeling I have lists of many more but this is what night gift clients and because the the more the more limited we are in our feelings the more our behavior is virtual. We say we do something because we thought about it but actually behaviors based on these four things. Thoughts feelings are kinesthetic kinesthetic experience in our spiritual beliefs if we have any and that's what makes our behavior and so oh so is that really come from an unconscious level. It comes from an unconscious level. Unless you're where you're feeling we're aware of our thought right. Have we often say. I'm feeling that you should do something. But that's not as feeling obviously slowly how do you. How do you to undo? I'm asking these questions for the viewers. But how how do you hone in to the to. You're feeling for one and then to be able to express it because don't you think that it takes practice to be able to express your feelings.

We're telling the story of different woman from throughout history who you may or may not know about but definitely should each month has a theme and this month. We're talking about dreamers women who should be remembered for their creative accomplishments today. Let's talk about novelist. Zora Neale Hurston Euro May Be Goto Hal and more my flow day will absorb. It was born in Alabama on.

I INC black township Zora's father worked in the town hall helping to govern the community and her mother worked in one of the towns churches guiding the community's religious education growing up and eaten Ville Zora absorbed a proud ambitious mindset. She had a happy childhood though she often butted heads with her father who tried to quell her wild attitude Zora's mother however urged her to keep aiming high telling Zora era to quote jump at the Sun Zora leader explained that mindset when she wrote we might not land on the Sutton but at least we would get off the Ground When Zorro was thirteen years old. Her mother passed away losing the. The encouragement and affection of her mom greatly impacted her life. Zora leader wrote quote that our began my wanderings not so much geography but in time then not so much in time as in spirit zora's whereas father quickly remarried to a much younger woman who never accepted Zora or her siblings Seora and her stepmother constantly argued and one fateful day the tension between the two erupted into a brutal fistfight Zora almost killed the woman so without even finishing high school Zora packed up and left town to join Gilbert and Sullivan traveling theater troupe as a made in nineteen seventeen she arrived in Baltimore. Zora knew she wanted to go back to school cool so despite the fact that she was twenty six she pretended she was sixteen to qualify for free public schooling. She kept up the ruse for the rest of her life. In nineteen twenty five after graduating from school Zora arrived. In New York City at the peak of the Harlem Renaissance she used her memorable witty personality to befriend some of the heaviest hitters like poet Langston Hughes and singer. Ethel Waters Zora enrolled at Barnard College on a Scholarship Shit in nineteen twenty seven she travelled south to collect information on African American folklore literature who do in general culture while they're she interviewed cut Joe Cazzola Lewis the last living person to be transported in the Trans Atlantic slave trade in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Zora published her take on his story throughout her literary career. Zora traveled back to the south to continue her careful anthropological research. which found its way into her? Many writings Zora had published quite a few works by nineteen thirty five including a novel called Jonas Gourd Vine and a collection of black southern folklore called mules and men but her career really took off in the late nineteen thirties when she published her most popular novel their eyes were watching God.

"Gathering those works of art than creating a big piece made up of all of these smaller pieces set it upon pick Zora, which is an art platform again on the theory unblushing, they just launched on may net. I think last week, and then potentially sell this big piece at Defcon, and then send the funds to twirl the the artists that contributed. So the idea here is really anybody can create a bounty and anybody can fulfil it you. You don't necessarily need to have technical background or a deep understanding of what blockchain is and how it works. And how it functions to be able to fulfil bounties. And that's what I mean by real users. They reading do come from not only just across the world. I think we have people from about one hundred fifteen countries, but also from a variety of backgrounds and variety of Tele talent skill sets and salon. I really like the idea of this actually because Lee can you look for different towns around to create an outsource basically different work that you might have. But it seems as though it's a very easy business plan because you do not need income. Your income comes from the people that are putting the bounty up for the worth if they're going to do. So you created basically a middleman or connector between you know, people that want work in the creators that can do the work. So that seems it's very easy, you know, sustainable business model. However, how are you? Monetize. And is is that collecting a little bit of, you know, a percentage by the transactions for somebody who puts up the bounty and somebody who collects the bounty. So we very much focused first on proving that this works, right? So when we set out and against route twenty eighteen it was very much to verify a lot of the assumptions that we had in fact that bounties were incredibly incredibly useful again for incentivizing and organizing action as we mature as a product as we have been monitoring product, we will tasks out a few different ways of of monetize ING again. It could be us charging the companies organizations or projects that set up the the bounties or bounty campaigns. And again that would come with a little bit more of a. I guess involved participation from from us as an entity, but also the micro transactions and taking a little bit off deterrent transactions is also a very very, viable alternative. So I think we are because this is a technology that's very much in its infancy. And because we have done so much on it already. I think testing and making sure that we find the the right model for all of our users is absolutely key. One of the main problems that you've had with future of work. Let's say platforms or freelancing platform, so far is that the always charge ridiculous fees? They always there is no transparency in terms of whether protections are for the freelancers working on projects. There is no guarantee that the funds are there for the freelancers to get paid. So we really want to eliminate this whole all of this opacity in all of this. I don't know a convoluted way of outsourcing work in and then tapping into a pool of work and reading moving to to where it should be where it's it's Farrell around. Okay. So it's on the theme that does that mean that these bounties are locked up in smart contracts. Okay. Can you can you go through can you explain the process of to the operations if I was an average consumer, and I was gonna go to bounties dot network in one up bounty for some say artwork or maybe a website design needle through the process and held work from the beginning to the end payout. Absolutely. So one of the main things that we did again in in twenty eight teen was to redesign the explorer based on the feedback that we got from our our users up until that point..

"Listen to Zora Neale, hurston speaking here, it is particular ambi-, whom I photograph whom I think I'm the first place on earth and probably the last one ever photograph was ambi-. She had died in nineteen hundred and seven. And nobody so her anymore until nineteen thirty six when she was found naked on a rolled. But she remember little she remembered where she used to live, and she went to plantations that used to be fathers, which was now brothers. She was a dentist bide by her brother. Her ex husband or son was now grown. He was three years old when she died and nineteen hundred seven shoes, a dentist fide, and she was officially dented by the Haitian government, and that was all the records of her death and her barrel, and I voted grabbed her in nineteen thirty six noticed. She says placing for person because she's southern and so as we've seen on the show, saying fireworks is an only Brooklyn. It's also south. You never know what sounds are going to do. So Lillian Carter said Boivin on our southern show and Neil hurston. If you listen closely placing not person, but just a little bit of it. But it would tell you right away that she was born. Born in the south like, the vast majority of black people back, then you wanna believe everything. That's order. Neil hurston says, and we an seem so strange, but you know, there's a lot of evidence that people did use am that way black people specifically. So there's a Harlem renaissance novel called home to Harlem, and it's full of sentences like to pick one of the ones that's better for general consumption. Oh, these here different ships. I tell you so chip, I guess is roughly honeys girls, whatever. And so these here and different chip's. I tell you and how the Brown skin babies am humping it alone, which I openly admit sounds like some great song from the time. But the thing is this book is anthropological. This man is writing about these people with serious perspective. He's trying to describe the lives of southern migrants to Harlem in the nineteen twenties. So it's unlikely that he would have them talking like minstrels, you get the feeling that these men really did say and like that at times. And it's in books. Thank you to my research. Assistant cash Chaman for digging some of these up it's in a lot of serious literature written by black people in for example, the late eighteen hundreds so there's a novel called imperium in Imperio, by Sutton Griggs. This is a black person. And at one touching point a mother says about her son his name am Belton, Piedmont, arteries, granddaddy, so do that. Again, his name in Belton Piedmont actors, granddaddy, Artor, you know, what that is. That's after in black dialect of the time, which you can also find in England in an answers a question, which is why Jack and Jill sucks, so Jack. And Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after that doesn't rhyme. If it's water than what after is that the best that they could do. No. Of course, not it's because the way they composed. It was Jack and Jill. Up the hill. The fetch a pail of water Jack fell down broke his crown. Jill came tumbling ardor and rhymes water otter. So here's this person saying his name Belton Piedmont. Now, we're back across the Atlantic artery. Granddaddy. Now, if this is accurate enough to get that ardour, and you can also see that ardour used by Jim in Huckleberry Finn and other places that is genuine old tiny black England's well, why is the am wrong..
