Brexit: Government refuses to drop plans to override parts of Brexit deal

"The U. K. left the European Union in January. It was possible to detect a faint sigh of relief even among those British people who thought the endeavor various combinations of reckless vainglorious, foolhardy, petulant, and self destructive at least and at last it was imagined. We now knew what we'd be dealing with a transition period some sort of new deal and a reduction of turbulence. The UK government this. Week announced it had other ideas planning to override sections of the withdrawal agreement. It had itself negotiated signed and won election on the back of joining me to attempt to identify what fresh hell. This is Naomi O'Leary. Your corresponded at the Irish Times and lands price former director of communications at ten Downing Street Naomi with all g recognition that there may be a number of answers to this question of varying degrees of decorum. What is the UK's government doing? Well, my understanding is that it's introducing an internal markets bill that will unpick. A couple of aspects that were agreed with the EU in order to avoid a border join across the arden. So this would include. Customs arrangements on state aid agreements on I mean by the UK's own admission because they rolled agreement was passed in his comments on signed by those sides it's international law. So this would be breaking international by their own admission. Let's. The as ninety points out the UK government has admitted that would be breaching international law. They did specify that it was a very limited and specific way. So that's fine. Apparently It's one of the great questions attending, Boris? Johnson. Administration. Is there a strategy discernible or are they just winging this? Was this always the plan basically? I think has to assume there is some sort of strategy but quite deliberately, it is so opaque that those looking in from the outside, find it very hard to discern what it is. That we may come to the end of this year to the end of December and look back and say, well, actually, there wasn't the strategy and they would just blundering white. You giving a very good impression of simply plunder their way through, but they are not stupid. And we assume that there is method to their madness. Now, about methods may simply to be as disruptive as possible this stage in in. In order to Let's try to secure the deal again today still with the intention of trying to get the deal to give you a new one. That I've spoken to or listen to seems to be able to determine which it is still time. That's it. It's never wanted to deal that looks away play the of European Union. They deliver take disrupted to the prospects of deal because frankly. Happy to go. Without one. But? What has the response to this development being in I mean we'll talk about the rest of the EU shortly but in Ireland in particular because for obvious reasons island republic, there was always going to be more affected by the fact of Brexit than any other EU country. I think initially an many people struggle to believe that this was really what the UK was doing that they were going to go through with this because you know a lot of figures in the civil service in government in Dublin have very long relationships with people in the UK with which have been constructive. kind of goes against the their experience of Britain so far to a large extent up. So I, think there was initially hesitant to overreact to kind of see, but once the bill was made public all. The really have reacted with shock because this this way more than the sort of Saber rattling that everyone expected in terms of talking up no deal on shouting might sovereignty and everything that was kind of priced in this really fundamentally to the heart of the. Western order. People don't. Respect international law. It kind of puts in question a lot of the assumptions that the current global order is based on. I'm just to name a few for example, the fact Gibraltar is still in UK Homs let's based on an international treaty that even though Spain doesn't like it. has accepted. And that's just one small example, the UK itself relies on this concept that. International treaties can't unilaterally changed by one side lawfully, it relies on it all the time. Lunch just to elaborate on that point of Naomi's might even if this is just a slightly devil-may-care negotiating gambling might have effects in the real world. Niamey mentions there the treaty of you tracked onto which spying grudgingly ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to the United. Kingdom. But also within the last twenty, four hours, one almost admires the bras neck. We've seen the UK's foreign secretary reminding Iran of its international obligations. vis-a-vis, its nuclear treaty might this actually have real world impacts whether it is Gibraltar. Iran Hong Kong. A number of other places. I've been I think it might very well, not necessarily any other states would see this as a green light for them to reach national all all treaties that they have signed with the United Kingdom and other countries but set you going forward when it comes to trying to foam which agreements or whether it's trade agreements or security related agreements or whatever else it might be that the kingdom will be seen as an unreliable untrustworthy partner those. If, we say in terms that we are willing to break traditional goal this time that why should get any time in the future so we will see threats from the United States and. about about this, being a very significant roadblock to a free trade agreement with those countries. Now, we have just signed one with. Japan. He's just been announced that the United States go to preacher is leaving with Japan. It probably doesn't amount to us not which is government with like this. Super believe. But the standings of the United to International. has already been severely damaged, and that's why there's some very very senior figures in the Conservative Party former prime ministers, and little house. but the house tested deposits as well. Who say this is a statue. Niamey talks trade talks ideas due to resume on Monday, but especially bearing in mind. What Lance was just saying about the UK, turning itself into an increasingly on reliable interlocutor, and that's on top of the last few years of just extraordinary nonsense the has had to deal with is there a possibility or indeed? May We already have arrived at that point of the European Union basically losing patients with this entire thing? Obviously, the EU as twenty seven nations is probably more equipped to deal with the chaos of no deal than the UK is one nation. Right now, it's a bit of a game of chicken because I think neither side wants to be the one to call ice because they don't want to take the blame i. But yet they eat. You has given UK basically an ultimatum of the end of the month to reverse this plan. or they say that they will take legal recourses available under the withdrawal agreement I'm which include fines and things like that to try and bring the UK back in line Basically, they've been saying all year the an agreement relies on the past agreements being enacted and that's the fundamental trust is essential for anything being agreed and the reason they've been saying that I think because there was always a bit of a suspicion that something like this could. Happen though nobody wanted to believe it because the likes of ours Johnson on his cabinet ministers would occasionally say things that didn't make sense. The didn't fish with what they had agreed thing that there wouldn't be taxes on when they would be in the Irish Sea So I think the EU is going to wait and the they're they're not pulling out of the the talk. Yes. But the chance of them succeeding I, think in everyone's view with extremely spam at this point.

Brit Bennett: The Vanishing Half

"And Silver Bland, and this is bookworm. My guest today Brit Bennett is the talk of the literary world her book. The vanishing half made its debut at number one on the New York Times. Bestseller list now like me. You may not think much of bestseller was but my big surprise when I picked it up is that it's a wonderful book? It's very enjoyable to read, and it's only Brit. Bennett's second book won't was the originating idea for the vanishing half. Well thanks for having me The book actually began a conversation I had with my mother where she was telling me about this town. She remembered hearing about from her childhood, growing up in rural Louisiana and it was a town. Where was a community of light skinned black people that continued to intermarry within that community in hopes that their children would progressively lighter from generation to generation, so it really struck me as I'm very strange, disturbing idea, also place, and of course as a novelist that immediately makes you think. Oh, this is the setting for a novel. We? Get a very. Dramatic sense of that sending early in the book and I'm going to ask Brooke Bennett to read. The section that describes the town. It has a great name. The name of the town is Mallard and it's named after a duck. Go It was a strange town. Mallard named after the ring necked ducks, living in the rice fields and marshes, a town that like any other was more idea than place. The idea arrived to Alphonse to soar in eighteen, forty eight, as he stood in the sugar cane fields. He'd inherited from the father who'd once owned him. The father now dead, the now freed son wished to build something on those acres of land that would last for centuries to come. A town for men like him who never be accepted as white, but refused to be treated like Negroes a third-place his mother rest. Her soul had hated his lightness when he was a boy, she'd shopped him under the sun, begging him to darken. Maybe that's what made him I dream of the town. Lightness like anything inherited at great cost was lonely gift. He'd married him lotto even lighter than himself. She was pregnant with their first child, and he imagined children's Children's children lighter still like a cup of coffee steadily done rooted with cream, a more perfect Negro, each generation lighter than the one before. Soon others came. Soon idea in place became inseparable in Mallard carried throughout the rest of Saint Landry parish colored. People whispered about it wondered about it. White people couldn't believe even existed. When Saint Catherine's was built in nineteen, thirty eight, the diocese set over a young priest from Dublin who arrived certain that he was lost, didn't the bishop tally that Mallard was a colored town? who were these people walking about? Fair and Blonde and red headed the darkest ones nose year than a Greek was this accounted for colored in America who whites wanted to keep separate. How could they tell the difference? By the time, the being twins were born Afonso store was dead long gone. But his great great great granddaughters inherited his legacy whether they wanted to or not. Even desharnais complained before every founder's day picnic. Who rolled her eyes? When the founder was mentioned in school, as if none of that business had anything to do with her. This would stick after the twins disappeared. How desert never wanted to be part of a town that was her birth rate how she felt that you could flick away history like shrugging a hand off your shoulder. Can escape a town. You cannot escape blood. Somehow the twins believe themselves capable both. And yet if Alphonse to store could have stroll through the town. He'd imagined he would have been thrilled by the side of his great great great granddaughters, twin girls, creamy skin, Hazel Eyes wavy hair. He would marveled at them for the child to be a little more perfect in the parents. What could be more wonderful than that? The Breath Bennett reading. The section from the opening, ten pages of her novel, the vanishing half. Now. Tell me. This idea, the idea of the town that is designed to get wider and wider and to exile or expel those people who are violations of its aspiration toward whiteness. This is a horrifying idea just as in. Edward P. Jones's novel, the known world, a town where freed black people on black slaves themselves. Tell me how to we get ideas as dangerous and strange as these. Long I started so when I started thinking about the book I I read about similar communities to the stat existed of Louisiana, these krill communities of fair skin, black people who believed very deeply that it was better to be light, who were suspicious of darker skinned black people in wanted to kind of insulate their community against who they perceived as being outsiders to me. Book was taking. This idea of color is on just pushing it to extremes by locating the physical town in sort of pushing the. The extremes of that ideology to think about what it would look like. If color is not just a you know something that's abstract, if it's not just something that you think of as a preference or sort of personal opinion about light skin, being better than dark skin, what is it like if this is something that is actually kind of instituted in place and to the degree that the population is almost almost kind of genetically engineering at so that their children can can become lighter and

US, right, now yeah, right. bloody Sunday was one of the most significant events to take place during the Irish War of independence. On this date, thirty people were killed or fatally wounded. Not so much the amount of people, but how everything happened and it's both sides to. Most of the assassinations occurred within a small middle class area of the south inner city of Dublin. It started with the IRA seeking out members of an undercover British intelligence agency in Dublin, the IRA members went to a number of addresses and killed or fatally wounded sixteen men. Then the English retaliated by opening fire at a Gaelic football match in Croke Park, which killed or fatally wounded fourteen civilians and. Wounded at least sixty more. That evening to Irish Republicans Dick. McKee and Peter, clancy towns, good It's spelt differently than how you spell Peter. who had helped plan the earlier assassinations along with the third man, a civilian named conor coon. That sounds like Scottish name. On so they happen to be caught with the others they were beaten and shot dead in Dublin Castle by their captors, who claimed that they were killed during an escape attempt. In May of Nineteen, twenty, one Ireland was partitioned under British law by the Government of Ireland Act, which created Northern Ireland. Later on December Sixth Nineteen Twenty one.

So I'm going to kind of go through a highlight of its history, so this episode isn't like four hours long. Okay, good 'cause! You have me a little worried there uh-huh Anna's like are am. I. GonNA re novel or it's going to seem like it maybe. Dublin was actually founded by the Vikings in eight, forty one. That is new new information to me. Wow, already righty. They named it Dube Lynn two words, which means Blackpool, and that sounds like something straight out of game of thrones or Lord of the Rings. Interesting? Yeah, it was fortified with the ditch in wooden gate around it. The Danes erected an artificial hill where the man of Dublin do. Do Blonde do blinn would meet to make laws and discuss policy. Of course, the women folk weren't allowed definitely making. that was wrong already. The Vikings living conditions were very primitive, though the houses were wooden huts with thatched roof, no chimneys or glass windows. Could you imagine the bugs? Yeah and there was no heat or air conditioning. There I could imagine that right now. Hey listen for most of human history. This is how people lived yet, but not in Pats, history pets. History's always had a see attached to it well. We have a new saying now. Pat FACS pet facts that facts and that is, that is one of them. Yeah, Dublin head, blacksmiths and carpenters jewelers in make combs from bone or But they also had a relatively large wool weaving industry. Slowly the Danes were converted over to Christianity, and the first bishop of Dublin was appointed in ten twenty eight. That's that's a long time ago. Time ago, I there were many wars during the vikings rule of Dublin every time, though they recovered in May Dublin even better, Dublin grew to be the largest and most important town in Ireland. By the eleventh century, it is guest to have had a population of about four thousand people. That is a large town by those standards that day. Yeah, I suppose. That's true, I mean. I Guess Yeah Yeah I mean it doesn't seem like like here. It'd be like little rural place, but it was pretty big for them. Yeah, okay, they would trade with the English town of Chester and Bristol.

Our listeners who are mix of parents, young players coaches on so federation director, so it's going to be really great chat book before we get started. Can you tell our listeners a bit about yourself? Yeah, so I've been a string conditioning coach now for over fifteen years in, and maybe we'll kind of work from presidents to path, and so my my current role is as head of athletic. Science for the Irish rugby football you over here living in Dublin with my family, since two thousand fifteen, and just to give people insight into to what that long title actually needs. I have the fortunate opportunity to work across all national and our four provincial teams overseeing if you would in supporting the division, the execution and an application of all athletic performance and sport science. Let's say initiatives, which if I'm on very much so in lockstep with medical nutrition and rugby staff, but the really cool thing about. About Irish rugby is if you would we operate like team of teams, and we have the domain level weeds working for Irish rugby, then can support and connect all national and provincial teams, and obviously arm into supporting our domestic game as well and so my my role is probably seventy percent on the leadership, the vision coach, education side and thirty percent on the ground, but does background very much so in the trenches, helping people get bigger faster stronger for teams fourth primarily, but yet that interest prior.

American football players physically prepare themselves to go to the NFL combine which happens at the end of February and the physical interview of sorts where they go run a forty vertical jump abroad job done so it's fairly big business in the united. Thanks to help. Let's say guide. These players transition to the combine to the draft, and then inevitably to the NFL and the other half of my job, so to speak was most certainly in coach education, and so it's always been a huge passion of. And when I started with excess, we were running these kind of weeklong coaching mentorship programs in Phoenix Arizona and by the time I left ten years later we at online certifications in running courses in over twenty five different countries, and so very much I see myself as one part coach and one part, a coach educator, and in kind of the reds thread throughout that really is just that it's my interest in coaching, interesting communication, or how he is moved it professionals whether you're a parent or a tennis coach.

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES.

Dispensationalism

"This is a movement in theology that began in the eighteen hundreds and came on very strong and the nineteen hundreds. So let's take a look at it where it came from and what it's all about well. The story of dispensationalist begins with John Nelson. Darby he was born in eighteen hundred in Westminster London but his family roots were Irish and so when he came of age to go to college he was sent to Trinity College Dublin. He excelled as a student there and won the classics prize. That skill set would come in very handy for him later. He be involved in translating the Bible. It translate the Bible into German into Dutch and French and even the Complete Bible into English. He had his own translation. Darby would die in eighteen. Eighty two. He's known for two things being one of the early founders and what is called the Plymouth Brethren Church and also being the father or founder of dispensationalist him. This came about in the eighteen thirties. Eighteen forties there may be four significant features dispensationalist them that Darby began and then developed by others. The first is to see a distinction between Israel and the Church prior to dispensationalist them. You could say it was Covenant Theology and there was a connection between Israel and the Church. The understanding was there was one people of God but Darby began with a distinction between those two two peoples of God as it were and so God had a distinct and unique plan for Israel and a distinct and unique plan for the Church. This led to the second feature of dispensational and that is to see scripture as divided into dispensations. Now Darby had seven of them the Scofield Reference Bible. We'll talk about that in a minute. It had seven of them. Dispensationalist were not always agreed on the number of dispensations but they did agree on the concept. That was the idea that God dealt with humanity in different ways as he moved through the dispensations of scripture. So we have the distinction. Between Israel and the Church we have the dispensations the third feature is a literal hermitic that gets applied to prophecy and apocalyptic literature once that literal. Herman is applied. Well that leads us to the fourth feature and that is all of the end times events and charts and you've heard of these events of courses the rapture and that's followed by the seven year tribulation and that's followed by the second coming of Christ and the knots followed by the Millennium and then enter into the eternal state. This of course is using the book of Daniel and the book of revelation applying that little harmonic and seeing this as the literal timetable. For the EN times or for Eschaton Legiti. So those are some of the features that were given to dispensations by John Nelson Darby. Three things helped dispensational ISM get very popular in the twentieth century. The first was the beginning of the Bible Institute Movement Moody had one in Chicago. His was not the first. But it was certainly the flagship institution and these institutions sprung up. All over both the UK and the United States and they taught dispensational. The second thing was prophecy conferences. These were very popular in the early. Nineteen hundreds. They were known a Lake Philadelphia. They were in Dallas Texas. They were everywhere. And then the third thing that popularized dispensational was the scofield reference. Bible named for Cyrus Ingersoll. Scofield who was born in eighteen forty three and died in nineteen twenty one he used the dispensations as the framework to understand the Bible and its structure any applied that dispensational harmonic to texts and it also put forth that dispensational distinction of a separation between Israel and the church. So there you have it. Dispensational SOM started by John Nelson Darby and furthered along by the violence to movement. The prophecy conferences in the Scofield Reference Bible in the Early Twentieth Century.

Searching For Cockles

"We're in central puget sound in a body of water that we call Port Orchard Passage. This is a very good body of water for Shellfish. Because there's a lot of current coming through this little bottle neck area. There brings a lot of nutrients food. Oxygen Vivian. Barry is the shellfish program manager for the tribe and we met her and her colleague. Jeff more on a tribally owned beach across the sound from Seattle to areas famous for all sorts of seafood especially shellfish oysters and gooey ducks and course clams that we have different types of clams here. We have the the native little neck clams and we have an introduced Manila clam. That's very similar to the little neck. But it's from Asia originally and of course there's The star of today's show cockles which we actually couldn't see so they like to live in the lower intertidal zone and then the subtitle. Apparently there are more cockles. Living under the water than on the beach for those of you who are not up on their whole tidal geography. The Inter title is that part you see at the beach. The wet sand that gets exposed as the tide is going out. The subtitle is under shallow water almost all the time. It's that sliver of sand that only gives exposed at super low tides. Like when there's a full moon and so to get to the cockles in that subtitle's zone Vivian. And Jeff have to wait until the tide is at. It's very very lowest point this time of year. That's around three. A M which is go at night we harvest at night. Yeah we were out there during the day but fortunately there were some cockle shells available on the beach as visually. They see a cockle there. Jeff grab it. Yeah they're weathered but there you can see they look like those ripple chips. They're they're ribbed. They have these long ribs. Come down longitude only. This is what you would see when you're looking in the garden. Cockle shells right from the nursery room round more. Like a ball shape. The Long Ribs Jeff is describing on the shell. It's those same lines in the cockleshell flowers that give the flowers their name. If you've never seen a cockleshell and frankly I hadn't as Jeff said you might know them better from nursery RHYMES MARY. Mary quite contrary. How does your garden grow with silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row? No one knows exactly what that means. There's a theory that Mary as Mary. Queen of Scots and the cockle shells are somehow Catholic. But yeah no one knows. And then there's another old English rhyme. I knew as a Kid. It was actually a jump rope song for me. Blue Bells cockle shells a vans British rhyme. So they would have been talking about the different species at cockle. The common cockle as it's called which you find in the UK and Ireland Portugal and all down the Atlantic coast. Morocco cockles have long been a popular food in all these countries. Just one of the many shellfish people enjoyed you might have heard the Irish Song Molly Malone where she selling cockles in the streets of Dublin. We streets gone in the UK. Coco's used to be a pretty common seaside treat. You'd often buy them boiled served in a paper cone and sprinkled with Malt Vinegar. They were popular in the east end of London. And especially in Wales but today those kinds of traditional shellfish like welk's and winkles and cockles. They've become less and less popular. But while cockles are no longer common snacks in seaside towns. They are still actually harvested all along the coast of the UK. They're shipped overnight to elsewhere in Europe like France and the Netherlands where cockles are still popular law of blazes in the UK. That harvesting is still done by hand using cocoa rake. It can be really dangerous work if you get caught by the tide but while we were researching this episode we discovered off the coast of Norfolk. They've developed an ingenious technique that involves driving boats around in circles. This is from a channel four documentary about calls three to four minutes. Yes that's the war talk. The boat's propeller push the sentiment in these re off. Would you use the boat? Wash all the sideway basically There's yet another species of cockle that's widespread in Asia. In Japan. There's a popular cockles Sushi. That's available only one month a year but in a lot of places. Kaka leading has really fallen off. The shelves are hard to open. And especially these European cockles. There's only a tiny bit of meat. Once you do manage to pry them apart but west coast cockles like we said there are different species and they are most decidedly not dainty little things. They're actually quite hefty. They probably can get about a good four inches four five inches. They can get fairly large and heavy in terms of like maybe a schoolboy size little apple so cockles are bigger than clams but there are unusual in another way to most shellfish like the little neck clams in the Manila clams covered the beach. We were on their pretty stationary and when they settle from larvae to an adult they basically dig themselves in and stay in the same place for the rest of their lives but cockles. They are not quite so sedentary. These cockles have a really heavy and strong foot and they're very mobile so they can escape. They're predators by just jumping away from them this jump. It's not just a little hub. This is a full-on leap leap leap away. So one of the Faster Sea Stars is the Sun Star Picnic. Odia helium authorities. These sunflower seeds. Stars are freaky looking. They range in color from bright orange to purple. They get to more than three feet wide. And they have up to twenty four arms covered in suckers and they love to use those suckers to pull apart the two halves of cockleshell and then they chomped down on the flash. They can sense when the sea star is trying to get a hold of him in a foot to just kick away and they can jump off. We're talking we're talking mostly sideways. And then the kind of kick away and SORTA roll along to get away so at a time but enough to get away from a sea star and as long as there have been people living along puget sound. They've been eating those leaping cockles over ten thousand years. I don't know I mean bivalves have been around for you. Know millions of years in the ocean and the tribes have been around these waters. For at least I think the archaeological record say at least fourteen thousand years by all accounts cockles are one hundred percent delicious and a favorite food of the first nations people in the area so they will build a large fire with rocks so the rocks become very hot and they will put the shellfish right the rocks and cover them with seaweed so they basically steam in their own juices. It's over an open flame and it's yeah the the way they've been doing it for forever so it's they've perfected the art they're good. They're really sweet. Really sweet and kind of a rich kind of seafood taste little chewier a little bit meaty so they compared to other clans. I would say there's more richness in the

Now I've been busy busy busy organizing dance almost so we'd have emotions. I'd say about you you adopted into this okay and you find implanted to go out and slowly think and this is what. I've been talking to a lot of people in the industry where I think like because we've been so busy. There's nearly as like dealing of guilt. Almost you know what I mean because like everything's cancelled We can't really plan too far ahead so we've gone from having like the whole year plan to sudenly sitting down and thinking what to do next so for me. The hardest part is actually just like taking a breath. Getting there definitely gotten their Katrina. I mean say you both as education. You really you have yourselves but how you coat with this current restrictions that we've been given in isolation lockdown everything that was planned has that created a meltdown for you and have you that with it. Yeah so I think for me what happened was I could see at Komen. I good Sense of like you know. I had it educated Portugal. That trip was cancelled. I was in Italy in that Wisconsin. I supposed to go.

You do guilty about it because you know there's so many people suffering obviously the medical profession epidemic of wonderful thing but from a selfish industry. Point of view is quite nice to have a little bit of time down and I think the thing about it is creative. Energy is to really let that go. Wouldn't you agree? Trina yeah like in the sense as well. I think that as hairdressers we do tend to dot to you know new things that are happening. I think as a creative especially when the night stops.

For that reason because we are site is going to go live so but we're delighted that we are going to be doing everything like for donations for the floor. He weeks all that launched as mega wilder view is doing. I think for a great cause but yeah I have a lot of fun watching these lives and people getting used to beeping good to watch now. Certainly. Yeah we'll be watching what you do in. Yeah sounds great Wednesday night but we want to learn a little bit more of the guys and I know you are massive. I mean you both huge in Ireland. I know that and certainly across European giving listeners. A little bit of a heads up less work at how you came together. I in you know as a bit of a collaborative force would not be.

Khanna gives a bit a heads upon who you are the hairdresser and where you are right now so I suppose I'm Harris in eight years at this stage and I. I was inclined of a really big company for a long time. And they're quite good. I got quite actually started to feel like the same thing over and over again. I started to feel like I didn't actually like hair anymore. It's actually like I didn't like industry. I DOT COM to panic. Decided why didn't realize actually that I was just talking to roll and I think sometimes you don't realize until you're on the outside of it and so what happened was I think I think Katrina.

"Two day. We're talking to one of the old. She travel bloggers. Don't believe me while if you google how to become a full time travel blogger. His website is the number one search result. Which tells you he's source anyway. We've got pneumatic maths. Aka Matthew kept nece here with us today to discuss all things travel the travel lifestyle and something. I'm not an expert. At budget trump matt. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks for having me I. I think I think it'd be interesting watching you in the hostile. You know my first time in a hospital. First and last actually. I've stayed in hostels twice when I was in college. We went to a Ireland. Right around Saint Patrick's Day for spring break. We had found two hundred fifty dollar airfare from Pittsburgh Tha Dublin and we stayed at it was actually decent hostile in Dublin. It was like a party. Hostile right near What's what's The neighborhood all. We're all the bars every bar. Temple Bar My bad hostile experience was in Paris at the peace and love hospice. Hostel Actually passed it recently when I was traveling through the Ariza. Oh my it's a bus in the past and I had a very Thursday they're eight and in eastern European was the three of us in this room and There was some language barriers and Some body odor barriers as well and and of course. Needless say I did not pass. The shower did not pass. Tvd shower tests. I think I had to contorts myself but yeah I mean they're small for me. Sometimes Mike Half Your size so matt you've been in the travel game for a long time. We're going to get into your story how you got but do you still. You're successful. You run a great website. Nomadic MATT DOT COM. Do you still stay in. Hostels all the time I say private runs now. I'm not doing dorms. But I love hostels you know I just. I traveled to meet people. And if I'm not traveling for work I like to be around other travelers so I find awesome the private room and I stay there and even if I am just there for a couple of days and I don't really get to interact with them as much as possible. I like the energy and the vibe and just kind of makes me feel a lot better than just being alone in a hotel room. So what what are the best ways to research hostels? 'cause there's obviously varying hostels right. There's like Roach just like there are hotels are crummy hotels and an awesome hostels. Like what are the tips on finding a really fun quality hostile? I always look at the reviews on hostile world Because travellers tens day a lot of hospitals so the average review is usually pretty accurate. I I like hostels with But organized tours and activities to me. That's a key component. You have a lot of hostels. These days like generator. Saint Christopher's even Free and that are just sort of like hotels for backpackers that four hundred rooms Tour groups go in there. They'll really organiz activities in hospitals all about the community and the atmosphere creates. And so I. I think it's important to find a hostile that we host lots of events. We take you out. We show you around. You know we we get people to interact with each other. What how much hostels go for these days like? I guess it depends obviously where you're going so let's just start with Europe. You're in Paris like what is a a decent you know. Explain to me. How hostile pricing works? Because frankly it's been over a decade. Yeah obviously the the cheaper ones are dirtier and thoughts out our bed or bedbugs. Real big deal with hostels. I mean they are at fancy hotels as well so I'm sure. But is it a real issue on hostile communicate? It's less common than you think because Hostels are hyper aware of it. And so they're always cleaning beds and they're always Taking precautions against it. Obviously the the crappier the hassle bus they care but is such a cute issue that all the good houses are really focused on minimizing that and in the twelve years. Now where are we in? Fourteen years the backpacking in hassles. I've only seen bedbugs once and it was in a hostel in Cambodia But you know I'm pricing. Your average dorm in Europe is highly twenty euros for like something. That's like twelve beds and then the smaller you get. It can go up to thirty thirty five euros. Especially if it's a popular hostile and the city like When my favorite hostels define Pagan Amsterdam and now it's like thirty five dollars a night to stay there. It's really expensive So expensive for dorm room. Yeah a private room is usually around eighty To one hundred euros which at that price it. It's not you can get a hotel or an AIRBNB. That's about the same thing so usually i. I say they're simply because I want the community. Yeah it's less about the price more depending on. I think there's a stereotype about hostels. It's young backpackers wild single to people. Do couple say hostels to like. I've seen couples. I've seen people that are my grandparents AIDS. I I you see everybody in between just like there's a hotel everybody there's a hostile forever by the there are definitely Cardi hassles that catered to the eighteen year olds. Who just want us to get drunk? But there are hostels for tour groups School groups people who just want cycle families So you know that's one of the things you look for in the reviews ways demographic of of most of us will come on and say and they're like description like come here. Just get drunk. You know like skip. Yeah tell me. Your your wildest family friendly this is a family. Friendly podcast Hostile Eddie like really crazy stories or super interesting. I got one so Kirstin from the blonde broad and I were in Barcelona. I made her stay in a hostel and It's I have. I've never named the hostile but it's a well known party one and so we got a dorm room. And there's these Brazilian guys in there and yet they're just getting drunk all the time and our last night there. I got woken up by this giant. Knock on the door and nobody was answering so I finally woke up and answered it when the Brazilian guys who was like a private room or we were in a dorm. Oh six bed. Dorm Room I met her debuted on the door at night. Will they lock you out of your key? You have key So we have gone skeet so I let him in and I go back bays like sorry. Sorry sorry not smell like. Why is the smell wise? It smells like Shit. Oh and I come to realize. Oh that's because they're shit on my hand and then I turned on the light and I realized the L. A. doorknob. Oh the Brazilian guy had shit himself in his bed ran to the bathroom leaving a trail. Oh must have wiped off because there is on the hand knob and then locked himself out and I had been the fortunate one to answer the door the only other people who was Nikkei Stan Two girls and the guidance friend so one of those imagine the screams of one of the girls had opened the thing he looks at me and he's like it wasn't make now's like who else could it be. It was Kirstin and encouraged him. We love you and he's like I just. I was like the trailers right to your bed so I go wash my hands you know. I watched the DOORKNOB. I washed my hands twenty thousand times. You change rooms at this point. I mean we're getting like two hours but will when I got back to the dorm were you able to go back to bed No but when I got back to the dorm his bed was in the hallway and he had wiped up the floor but he was sleeping on a mattress and to this day. I cannot figure out where that matches came from because all the germs are locked but he managed to find the mattress. It's wasn't my mattress. Something tells me this might not have been his first time pulling the style so when we wake up and I tell Carson the story. She's like no way that happened. No Way and like there's no transcendent. Wake up from the smell in the room. He wiped it up pretty fast but so all the all of us have curtains so I had grabbed the carton with my like poop covered hand and there were like Poop streaks.

Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended.

Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe.

C. sports with Cobb and co he firmly believes that tonight will be the last games we see in college basketball this year I think we saw last college baseball games played tonight I'd be shocked with given what's going on we're gonna say that professionals can not continue to play the game but we're going to allow amateurs to continue be put in this situation eight look you and I are both on the same page we love college baseball I I mean when I came back here today from Las Vegas last night where I was at the west coast conference tournament will already I thought we were celebrating the game all day long this can be fantastic the tone has shifted and as more more information is coming out right now it is really hard pressed to believe that we're gonna be putting teams on planes flying them across the country even to spectator lists arenas I continue to play basketball for teams like rockers they haven't been in the term and since nineteen ninety one this is their moment right you take it and as a person to play me instead of letterman I didn't get what that's like the fanfare the uniqueness of the entire event is special is different but then at the flip side of it the risk is the risk factor is is far outweighs the reward zone phone makes a great point here's what I'm going to disagree with them the only way that that's going to happen is if a Nov coaches push back and say I'm not fly my players on planes in the NC double a tournament it goes back to me it goes back to the decision the Ivy League made to not hold the Ivy League tournament and the blowback that they got from the pens men's coats and the pants women's coats saying horrific and hypocrisy when it comes to canceling this event this weekend the only way I believe that the NC double a term is not going to happen would be if the bill so also the world if the top is also the world adult the John Calipari's the world they say you know what we're not flying out okay because the risk is too great until I hear that I'm not buying it without big job on makes a great point but I'm still not by that that is not gonna be a March madness NC double a turnover this year I disagree it's about the coaches Freddie way above the coaches then what I know mark Emmert it's even it's even above it's it's well he's a coach okay is there any chance of light when he was in C. EE who's about him then no I mean you you're saying code to you hear coaches saying it you have to hear university presidents and conference commissioners they're the ones that make the money decisions this is a over a six billion dollar business and that the the people that imp that employee for the most part like a better term mark Emmert are the university presidents and conference commissioners if the president's tell their commissioners we're not doing this that's when it happens coaches will have minimal say I disagree again I saw that a lot of big voices in is to go to college at his university presidents that pay those coaches their money and the conference commissioners wage also employee and and oversee all of the university president's institutions is it worth the six billion dollar business Ali I I we're on the same page I don this lip in the page one step further and that is if university presidents for telling a getting advice from their coaches to them to go to conference commissioners I mean it's it's it's it's like a chain of command in the military right in the conference the coaches alike if they're they're captains did you go to generals right and then you go all the way up right and then then you have the L. prezidente and until those conference commissioners tell mark Emmert not on those in that six a billion dollar TV contract the same happened until that happens games will be played in front of an empty barns by the FCC will not allow fans to the men's basketball tournament starting tomorrow only essential personnel and friends and family of players and coach you allowed how do you screen them we're going I am legend here and I ball tests that's a great question I have no idea

"Then we get into transportation Russian insecurity and education and identity in all of those things but it all the concept of the smart city was was really I get. Yeah Yeah Yeah and when you look at the digital identity project what were some of the barriers that you were faced with. And how did you manage to circumvent invent them. Well one barriers perception when you use the term blockchain and I'm sure guests so when you talk about people here cryptocurrency gap and they hear Bitcoin and they hear that they don't hear blockchain and so we do try to that we started just calling it digital identity and and not so much blockchain because it distracts people and they think of it as the flavor of the day and Hype and all of those things. So that's an issue. We don't have a lot funding There's no funding for these kinds of innovation so you kinda have to partner and do public private partnerships and and explore a really Lee low budget kind of experiments in. That's why we done a proof of concept at a very limited way So those are a couple couple of barriers. There's not a lot even the most advanced smart cities that you're hearing about. There's not a lot of funding there and there's a lot of doubt Dublin in our recently at an event the other night Two percent Many of these advances to residents has a very active in supportive residents base. So my advice is for other cities is if you are typically in the stance of telling your city you really are no good and you doing everything wrong. And we don't trust you. They're not going to innovate a whole lot. And you're not going to bring a lot of ideas to you but if when they do bring a new idea to you you say. Hey We support this. We want you to continue. You're likely likely to get better innovation out of your community and I get a lot of out of the people of Dublin. Ohio route excellent excellent. You're taking a very customer. centric took approach. You have a community. That supports your initiatives. This is really good stuff it's You're acting a lot like a start up by the sounds of it. Yeah absolutely absolutely there is co creation and I actually do use startup concepts and principles. We use agile. We talk about iteration in in. That is very difficult. Vocal for government Yes to interim governments have budgets. They have you have to have your idea fully baked and then you present it and then you get budget for and then you must be successful. There's a very rare situation where you can try something. And that's an education thing that we really have to work on a lot definitely definitely so. Can you describe to us a little bit about your digital identity solution and for example how how was it designed. And how did you enter your partners owners to build a solution that I'd like to hear more about it please. Yeah we actually created a group before we thought about developing solution here called the Dublin blockchain group. That was my attempt to plant a flag A few years ago a couple years ago Where we said we want all all of the tech companies in the area to come out? Sit Down Hackers. You know People in the back rooms there companies. Who are really experimenting in? SORTA keeping these these skunkworks in secret. Come out and amongst friends. Were just going to discuss them. We had a few meetings of that in a few companies emerged as really just being compassionate about this I started talking to one. It was a software verde and we started conceiving of what would be great use. Case for how government could be using blockchain. What's a value to citizens and we did go through an RSP process and they were selected But it started with the Dublin blockchain in grouping in doing that I do WanNa mention to you some of the characteristics of our digital identity. Because I think that's also what you're asking and one of them is just the identity we're using a qr code and some encryption which allows you to use public private key kind of scenario so that you walk into a government building lingers Qr Code. There you use your phone to scan it or to be scanned by it and certain personal information would be able to be passed. This is in my view personal identifiable information or P I as a service so that data is data that we have on you you as a citizen we WANNA keep it in one place not in file cabinets all over the city putting one place so that when you scan your digital identity you can be identified forums or two interim meeting to do any of those things. There are two other aspects of the identity that I consider applications. One of them is a points based system that we have Dublin points so that you can use your digital identity to undertake activities which is consistent with the values of our community such as sustainability or cybersecurity or volunteering or something like that and you will gain points from from the city that you could regain for some cities swag or for some benefits or something of a arbitrary value and that's an important part so the token go ahead. It starts at this point in a token format. I'm assuming they are in. It's an arbitrary value. So if I give you five points that doesn't Correspond to fifty cents or five dollars anything like that. You can only use them in coins. Trading and the third application is around polling. Need to as a city vehicle to ask you a question as a citizen and you need to be able to answer and you need to have trust that your answer Sir or your polling question. Your vote has been taken seriously that it is cure. It's not tampered with those things in meeting to know that you are a citizen that you actually answered this question with that functionality. There's a number of things that we could be doing as a city that currently under our democracy interesting we only use othing for votes for people for questions inferred certain taxes but don't express our desires to our government comment more frequently in a very reliable man so that is part of the experiment as well. So there's a digital identity. A token of value and Poland are all three applications of this excellent. Now how long has has been Live and what are some kind of the re- The The data points in terms of the results on. How often is it being used? I'm trying to get an idea of you know of of how well it's being accepted by the community while again we're taking an interest in stance and so we had done a significant amount of testing we tested with internal it staff of the city first. And then we test was city city. Staff were not outsiders and we had another session which we tested with volunteers who are not members of city staff with the residents residents of the city and then we just the other night had of a mortgage consideration kind of thing with members of the public so it is not widely in use has been live and in production for only a few weeks. Now actually And we're going slow. which is something that most governments don't have the ability to do you have have to show results immediately but because our project is not dependent upon life safety or anything like that? We didn't spend a huge amount of money on it. We can get it right A.. And take our time so I don't have. It would be less than ten people using it now because again. We WanNa work the bugs out. And we're having people experiment with entering the eighty eight of the feedback that we've gotten from residents and all across our region is a huge amount of positivity just for the experiment and we WANNA to make sure that we're not representing this as anybody in the city of Dublin. Hasta this or will ever have to have it. It's not a requirement it is strictly voluntary. I WanNa make sure that there's a comfort level with people at we're not usurping or taking over what the identity system that is not the case so this is a slow moving okay okay And in terms of the actual infrastructure picture that you use. I understand that you built this on Bitcoin cash. Could you explain to us some of the reasoning for that. Sure while it was presented to me. I am not a person who is part of the global battle between the coin. Bitcoin cash or different various crypto currencies currencies. In in in those kinds of things. I am more practical just in terms of stability availability Installed base and some of those things so as it was presented to me I looked at bitcoin. Cash as up something that just worked I am not concerned about joining into a global community although there is one for all of these crypto currencies do like other crypto currencies games. I like a theory I like. I think that there's a lot of advantages to them but part of the reason for us. Doing this project is for us to learn as well so I don't need the selected elected infrastructure to be perfect or for it to last a hundred years so I don't need to get into those arguments or questions what I need stability not in availability and I found that the bitcoin cash community has the technology that we need in order for these information transactions to be a highly available highly secure and. I don't spend a lot of time talking about it or evangelizing about bitcoin cash specifically of. But I can tell you that it does everything that we asked to do have had no stability your or security questions around it and I feel really good about that choice. EXON EXON and when you're looking at the T. cited you consider self-serving identity platforms such as ones by bill bill by sovereign or others or What was your thinking with regards to these kind of platforms? I did not only because of their ultimate goals. At at the end of the day we are government and we are attempting to create something that allows us as a government to hold onto I personally identifiable information and interact with residents self sovereign identity as I understand. It is highly independent of Any type of government interactivity and so it just didn't fit for what we were trying to do. In terms of applications. Like when I'm talking about polling and points in those kinds of things however I believe in the self sovereign identity concept and we want to make sure we're we're developing a platform that can be integrated with other forms of digital identity especially where blockchain is concerned so. We didn't go in that direction election for this particular experiment. But I remain open to the possibilities of integrating with or you know eventually just sort of melding these various Identity scenario of course. Of course now I understand. You're still in the early stages of your project. But what have you given some thought. In terms of some of the additional features you would like to include an into your project. Absolutely we it. You have to be careful about Matt Dreaming Big Fast and sometimes you've got a platform that works in the immediately start thinking of under different applications. And you don't have the money a Europe those kinds of things so we we are spreading this in evangelizing about it. In looking for private partners there is a very interesting use case in which a private company bunny could utilize. Pi of individual with their permission without having to store it. So I think there's some Public Private Evan partnerships that could come out of this Initially for us just as a city we see the ability to go in make a request for a service from your city any by just scanning. Qr Code as being one of the simplest basic things that we just want to spread across all sorts of different services that we offer today. We also I WANNA get into our public school system. There's immediate applications there so that some of the Business Education and nonprofit kind interests are able to take advantage of the existence of such a thing about this is all experimentation in those are very attractive to of course of course nine nine again. I appreciate you know that you're still in the early stages but you probably you're gonNA get already have or will be getting very fast. Some learnings regarding you know the project you're working on and do you believe that your platform or at least your learnings could be part of a larger state digital ought entity program or perhaps even part of federal one absolutely and we've actually heard from states other states that are developing theirs and They find that this platform is a very interesting one to go forward with so States are looking at that some other states and the federal government I believe are independently developing and designing some of these things. If you figure a small suburb was able to do it. Certainly the federal government can come up with scenarios. Well they they cannot move as fast as we can and so again we wanted to plant a flag and make it so that we didn't get frozen out because once a state decides that this is how it's going to be. It's going to be very difficult for cities to experiment and do those kinds of things again. That's our brand. There are other cities around the state of Ohio. Who who are looking to throw in with us in and do some of the same things and we see? The collections of cities can be as powerful as states are and so so. It's Kinda up in the air how this is all going to shake out but we want to be at the table. We don't want to hear from another government that hey we figured it out. Just do do what we tell you to do. WE WANNA be..

Iraq's open he's five or six to one of the day that was kind of thinking as well from a betting perspective. This is a bit of a nightmare. Rory because you've got so much talent I mean this is definitely a race where you can just just sit back and watch and enjoy and and we should. We should learn an awful lot but I know that Danny did say on the podcast that if they race tomorrow Shotgun post-wall would turn the former end. Now I respect that and it gives you an insight into just how highly they regard check on wall but I did the same as Brian and rewatch that race this morning.

Men is the better the weekend all better for the weekend at the current prices. He's the wrong price. Hey should make an awful lot. More sense men unshockable Had their prices reversed. I know I know people as they is the dark horse. The horse with a big reputation those not some huge novice office performance last season. But we have to get into our heads that novice form is not as good by definition as open grid one form. You're you're you're looking at restricted races over to resign shocking about what could easily come through on the big performance that he threatened to do his punches time performance looked as good as any of the novices had performed all season As I said when we did the season preview I think you've got to be signed by horses who Miss Cheltenham Missing Entry Entry Punches time prior to their lives because they're liable to happen advantage over horses who Potentially run two big festivals before art. which is what I thought was definitely not here and I said we look to that risk? Visually looks really good but some there were there. Were at least just to Morse's who didn't get close to their their The best form there They always want to Geneva who was hugely impressive at Cheltenham on just looked like he he'd fall in love with again punched his tiny flashes -Til At the time of the race I just had to look like you know he was saying isn't you've you've got the best meal ready while you're only again. I was slighty. It's it's not it's not. Julius form is just dubious to assume that such a dominant performance against the end of the season would be the benchmark for what follows the fault of the season on fully fully aware. That.

"Leave there it is. That's okay Stephen. I'd mark. He's listening to you right now but in the future it. Does you ride your bike. There flower bike wrote it. So nice okay but the bar. I'm basically it's called Dark Kelly's pub on Campbell Street in Christchurch Dublin. And you'll find when you go there you'll find a plaque with an inscription exception that reads this building was eighteenth century. Brothel run by Madame Dorky. Kelly who in seventeen forty six was publicly executed for the alleged murder her child. Oh Shit Yeah Okay but the real story is a little bit different than that. I'm GonNa tell it to you. Great so her real name is Dorky. Kelly no jokes. We don't do that. We don't make fun of People's name it's weird. It's just weird though that that name has survived a test. Time this is my son. Mackenzie and my daughter Dorkcast. The problem sounded great with an accent sure. So nickname was Dorky. which is problematic as well so the thing about history history about us? I'm really fucked up. Shits happens to many many people one of them. Okay so I'm going to call her because she deserves that okay. She ran a brothel called maiden tower in the late. Seventeen fifty s in an ironic name the tower our part in copper alley in the southwest part of Dublin. Okay she ran it seventy you saw. Yeah she had retired by the time. I don't know data hang. You're done. Lucky Gal at the maidens come into the tower right. She's like I'm going to run this shit. I did it. I'm done with it now. I'm in charge of PAT hanging it up so she had retired by this time and was just the proprietor. The woman who ran the you know the proprietor proprietors if appropriate tricks so man do this. She said that she had one customer that she was the only person she saw. And he happened to be the sheriff of Dublin named Simon Latrell. L. Let's see here's a photo of her little Demi Moore going off real always. GELS did people that can do a center part. Oh yeah ask those of us. Who are the Big Irishman Ken on my hair right above my ear like Donald Trump? I'm jealous of people who can look over it. Even in a painting like Shimon so over that the pain paint me all you want. This is bullshit okay. Then here's her lover lover. I could never give up Simon. The Trout Shariff Somboon okay what's he doing. Is it Christmas. Here's the thing about him. He was a fucking crazy person. Okay so bad. His nickname King of hell polled them written about him. Which I guess in those days it someone wrote a poem about you to slam it was like super duper slam? Like wasn't just talking shit like I wrote a poem about it because I also think back in those days it might be wrong. But that's you would get up recites so it's like it wouldn't just be like are you ready for the king and help tonight author or six. Let's do this here. Whatever spread it around? Not so that the poem was that if Satan ever we needed to retire higher Simon to take over but he was because he was a member of the notorious Hellfire club. Gino about it tag. Tell me tell me. It's bad bad. Good bad bad so okay it was in named for several exclusive clubs for High Society Rakes. And it was like what's that it's shaped short. Rake hell which also means hellraiser Sir rich high-society dudes who just wanted to you know caused some trouble and B's rich high society. I mean what else do they have to do this. After you buy a bunch of boats what is there for you to do meet up with other dudes. They're doing whatever they wanted to that. They needed a club so because you whatever they wanted to with the devil the devil so it was it was these men were habituated. Immoral conduct particularly womanising and it was established in Britain and Ireland or Lyndon Eighteenth Century and they were rumored to be meeting places of persons of quality who wished to take part in socially perceived immoral act. So I think there's just like a ton of boning and drugs drag and stuff like that so just kind of like the Internet of the past the dark web. The dark web at the pass is that the Dublin chapter was headed by. Richard Parsons who is a founding member of the Hellfire Club. He was known to be in the black magic. And the club members were known to be super into partying and having to Botch Sacra and there were rumors. That members were Satanists. Like they were so bored by just being bad that they were like. Let's bring Satan into this party seeing like Yom boring me and they would have these crazy rituals where wrote earmarks Stephen. They would sacrifice cats. Oh I know Facing thank here the wrong place. The box streep box tickets eating garbage. And it's like a popcorn thing but absorb it and let me show and I love to Dabble They would they would set a place for the double at their table. That's not very scary. The devil is Ludi treble oil. I ask the the suit that dorkiest only down with yes. She then allegedly became pregnant with his baby and according to Simon Jude she came into him and demanded money and we don't opens either for helping with the child or to keep it quiet. And so his response to that was very sane and normal sang. She was a witch problem saw and he convinced his anti-arab friends stays in the law ecosystem back. Then you know sure to try for being in a witch problem song so so he gives her witchcraft and he said that she sacrificed her baby. But then it's rumor that he actually sacrificed her baby. Then it's rumored that shells so maybe wasn't pregnant at all so let's go with that one okay so at the trial she was like. You can't kill me because I'm pregnant and then because it was true that you couldn't kill sacrifice someone they were pregnant but not sacrifice you know assassin hang drown. Yeah whatever they were going to do put under a rock. That was the thing they just kind of smash you. I don't mean of course I wish you would. How power she on trial for sacrificing your baby and then she said but I'm pregnancy account account? Well a bunch of midwives for like she's pregnant so it's not known if she was or was it or what but the witchcraft thing was got it. Got It okay. Simon testified that she had been casting spells on him to extort money and to make fun with her. That's how love works is not witchcraft. Amass feeling as you deal with that no he doesn't doesn't double whatever so even though the body of this alleged sacrifice child was never found and darkness was found guilty of witchcraft and her punishment was death so in seventeen forty six. This is how they put her to death. She's partially hanged. And then publicly burnt alive at the crossroads and bag at Fitzwilliam Street in Dublin city centre job. I think there's an ancient. I'm there now which again great job. I'm so that they may hang her first and they said it was like women didn't just get burnt at the stake. They also like did something beforehand. But then I was like I saw another thing that was like they. They have killed her. She'd be unconscious when they burn her. Because the people boohooed allowed to watch public executions didn't want to hear the screaming of the people being burned at the stake conscious which is actually like better than being burns the snake I would guess you know the specificity a poor hangman having to hang up so that they're only on conscious. This is a lot to ask site from the bag. Of what a bummer. It'd be it'd be hangman anyway. You have to get it. Just empathy lies with the hangman. Always John and then go to Durkee Kelly's after here. Yeah okay.

"Me live from Dublin. No, not from Dublin. You know, I'll tell you why I was thinking live from Galway the other coast. But if you happen to be going to Dublin people there is a road called depending on where you're starting. If you're in Dublin, they call it the Dublin Galway wrote if you're Galway they call it the Galway Dublin road. It reminds me of the surface of the road number of lanes and whatnot similar to the mass pike in Massachusetts. Similar to the New Jersey turnpike. I don't know what to compare it to in the west coast for all of you listening out there. But it's it's a highway the difference is that while the mass pike in Massachusetts has absolutely gorgeous scenery along the route. As does the Galway Dublin Dublin Galway road. There are things they do in Ireland that'll blow your mind. So if you happen to be in Dublin is a two hour drive. Just like the jersey turnpike, just like the mass pike. It's a two hour drive from one extreme end to the other extreme meant. But in Ireland, you're driving along and all of a sudden, you look up and are statues of horses and their sculptures of snakes. I guess to remind you about Saint, Patrick, and there's there's all this artwork. Yawn inbetween looking out at sheep and cows and horses and greenery and mountains, and what have you? I mean is it. The coolest thing ever. So if you're in Dublin, it's no big deal to get to to Galway. But don't go out for the day. You know to the west coast to see the cliff Samoa and turn around and go right back to Dublin. You gotta spend some time in the west coast people. Forgive me, I love just about every single part of Ireland and Northern Ireland. But if I were going to buy a place to live, it would be on the west coast. So that should tell you something. But you know, I said Dublin John. I said Dublin because yesterday I was listening. I like to listen when I'm at my desk, and I'm doing something that doesn't require a my hundred percent attention. I liked to tune in via my computer to news talk radio one. Oh, six one zero eight FM in Ireland which comes out of Dublin, and I love Moncrieff, and I used to listen to Jerry Ryan was rest too. So. What's that other commotion? George George, George, George right hook. Yeah. I you know, I there are a number of shows that they like to listen to. So I'll go online, and I'll listen to it. And. And that comes out of Dublin and the other day, I was listening and somebody sent in a text to the you call them the show presenter, we call them the show host somebody sent in a text to the show host and they were talking about. Some something they were talking about gun control and whatnot. I think they were talking about American issues, but that happens a lot and somebody wrote in something about Smith and Weston and the host repeated Smith and.
