The Lord Fights For Us (Exodus 14:13-14)
"Exodus chapter fourteen versus thirteen and fourteen and moses said to the people fear not stand firm and see the salvation of the lord which he will work for you today for the egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again the lord will fight for you and you have only to be silent yes. Don't you love these words. Don't you love these two versus think about it. Gods people have been delivered out of slavery in egypt there now standing right on the edge of the red sea this massive body water in front of them with the egyptians who've enslave them for years now threatening to overtake them pharaoh and his army have now come after the egyptians. Try to bring them back and the people are worried concerned. Afraid what do we do. Where do we go. And we're trapped with a c. In front of us and all this army behind us. In god says moses fear not stand firm and see the salvation of the lord. Now think about that. Stand firm and see the salvation lord. How are they going to see the salvation of the lord by just standing there and seeing god work which he will it says work for you today. The lord will fight for you and you have only to be silent. Is there any clearer. Picture of faith in god that leads to salvation from god. This is this is the essence of what it means to be saved by god from sin to stand and seeds. Trust to believe that the lord fights for you that jesus has done the work that he has died on cross four. You're saying that he is risen from the grave and that if you trust in him you will be saved. You don't have to do anything. But trust in jesus it's by grace alone through faith alone in jesus alone that we are saved all glory. Be his name. He is the ultimate battle for us. And he has prevailed and then so now think about this. This is our life day in and day out. You and i face challenges you face. Struggles with sin struggles with trials in circumstances in life and it's end those struggles with sentenced in those trials in circumstances reface in life that god calls us to do the same to trust in him to trust that justice. Jesus fought for us on the cross. He fights for us
Israel freezes plan to send vaccines to foreign allies
"The story coming out of israel this week. was That israeli journalists. Kelly cohen reported that israel's going to send one hundred thousand vaccines to nineteen nations around the world. Some of these nations announced that they were moving are had already moved embassies or missions to jerusalem honduras guatemala czech republic. There was no debate at all In the security cabinet no authorization by the justice. Minister of foreign minister and benny was the defense minister. And by the way interim justice minister said that thinks he's a running running kingdom and not a state by this decision obviously. Israel's already criticized for not making it a priority to vaccinate. The palestinians may talk a little bit more about that. But it isn't making us look better right this these one hundred thousand. Vaccinations being sent abroad. No i didn't think it is. Because i mean vaccine diplomacy which is a new thing now in our will. But he's a real thing you know with china india jostling with each other to distribute vaccines to win influence and goodwill in asia etc. You know united arab emirates is is giving vaccine to egypt. Obviously this is a thing to be doing. Russia trying to boost its profile. But the problem here is. It's very transparent. The israelis basically rewarding friends. You know that hungry set up. A trade mission in jerusalem or the republicans promised to do something similar and therefore because of that recognition Be wants to reward those countries Vaccine i mean it goes down well for the reason you know. Which is the story. A big story around the world is that israel is not accenting Its nearest neighbors and therefore misses something. I think about vaccine diplomacy well. Why don't we just talk about that. Because of course that has reached a new audience that notion of what israel's doing not doing vaccine right and it reached a new audience in you're referring to the snl clip that How shall you say this. Caused a bit of a ruckus this week. So let's listen in and talk a little bit more about reporting that the vaccinated half of their population. And i'm gonna guess it's the jewish half. I mean obviously you mentioned this. Jonathan about how if I think you said this one of the previous episodes if this was new zealand. We wouldn't be hearing at the end of the vaccination thing but because it's israel and it's politically charged. There's there's added complexity to the story. Yeah i mean you know you states say. The snl clip went viral jojo. Avars use that word to me. That was a big moment. Really because it's mainstream american comedy. If that is now it seems to me. There's a judgment there. Such a night live making the among its audience. There will be a perception as a more left wing. Frankly view of israel than i think would have been true a generation ago And you can make a joke like that sort of edgy but the the among kinda millennial snl audience who. Let's say you know. Revere alexandria ocasio cortez. The idea that israel is basically a little bit racist is a joke that lands without audience. That's what i think. Snl thinking there and just on the point about vaccine diplomacy. It seems to me that is the piece that's missing. Which is okay. You think you get a little bit of goodwill in hungary czech republic or whatever but actually what is noticed around the world and we can get into the arguments for and against is. The palestinians are not being vaccinated by israeli vaccine. And that's the big picture to the point where it took butter than snl joke.
God is Faithful to Fulfill His Promises (Exodus 6:6-8)
"Exodus chapter six versus six through eight say therefore to the people of israel i am the lord and i will bring you out from under the burdens of the egyptians and i will deliver you from slavery to them and i will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment. I will take you to be my people. And i will be your god and you shall know that i am the lord your god who was brought you out from under the burdens of the egyptians. I will bring you into the land that i swore to give to abraham to isaac and jacob. I will give it to you for a possession. I am the lord This is one of my favorite passages in the book of exodus because in those three verses exodus chapter six versus six seven eight and those three verses. Did you hear the repetition of the words. I will over and over and over again. I love the structure of these verses. And what they say about. God knows very beginning. God's first words are i am the lord and then those last words so beginning of her six i am the lord god says and last words in this passage i am the lord of the end of verse. Eight an in between this declaration of who god is. I am the lord. The great i am xs chapter three in between this declaration of god's name this revelation of who is sandwiched in between an a matter of three verses. You have seven different times. Or god says i will now just rattled off again. I will bring you out from under the burdens of egypt. I will deliver you from slavery to them. I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment. I will take you to be my people. I will be your god. I will bring you into the land that i swore to give to abraham isaac and jacob. I will give it to you for a possession. I will i will i will. And we know scum spoiler alert here. God does all of those things. God does everything he says he will do. And that's the point. This is who got is. He is the god who makes and keeps all his promises. He makes promises to his people. He says i will do this. I will do this. I will be this will work in this way. He makes promises like that and then he keeps every single one of them and this is part of what it means for him to be the lord to be our lord which so just think about that for him to be lord means that he rules and reigns over us. He leads and guides us. He's our lord isn't good to know that your lord the god of the universe degrade i am. He's your lord and he keeps all of his good promises to
The Protest Movement in Myanmar
"Penny just tell us a little bit more about the protest movement in men it is not going away is it but does it still have the joyous youthful tone that we saw last week i think it does i think that it what we're seeing is Really a deeper penetration of the protests. It's actually very exciting. I think that so much of the animal population is involved in these protests and demonstrations the broken down cars yesterday. We were very very innovative. Attempt to create gridlock and to block military vehicles. And i think it had a very palpable symbolic fate. If not material effect. But i think the demonstrations the mess strikes continuing. I think that what we're going to have to watch is The level of organization involved One sees with this kind of protests worldwide. Unless it's very very well organized and coordinated and there was a united front that eventually the protesters the purchase can die down so that something that. I'm sure that the protesters themselves very conscious of and certainly many of the protesters were involved in two thousand seven demonstrations against the military regime and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. So i think the purchase not going anywhere fast at the moment. I think that they are the certainly being sustained. And i think we have to look and and respond to what civil disobedience movement wants from the rest of us in the rest of the world in terms of a boycott campaign sanctions against the military. And so on. So i think i think we will have to look at how well organized this is. I think we need to look at countries like egypt which didn't have the kind of leadership which sustained the revolutions in two thousand seven to two thousand and eleven. i'm sorry and so i think It's very exciting. But there's an awful lot to play
Rights expert appeals to countries to return nationals from Syrias squalid camps
"Of women and children who remain an arbitrary detention without end in camps in northeast syria must be helped homes the countries of origin atop independent ryan sex but has insisted an appeal to well over fifty countries. Whose nationals languishing. In the alcohol and roy centers because of their alleged links to isolate extremists. Special reputa- finola neo loin. Told you news's daniel. Johnson that many western european countries could do more to bring them home. So the scale of the challenge facing in syria is that we have over sixty four thousand people mostly women and children who are being held in camps in northeast syria in alcohol and regs camps primarily. It's been heartbreaking. Hasn't it listening to the grandmothers of those who are still detained in these camps. What are they telling you. So my mandate has had a lot of engagement with families including grandmothers grandmothers who are literally watching their grandchildren and their daughters starve on cell phones watching at sat with these grandmothers. And watch these images. And this is. It's it's profoundly heartbreaking because more than anything else they are completely powerless. Their governments are refusing to intervene and if those grandmothers were to send even packages of food or clothing or even any money to their daughters or their grandchildren to take them out of the extremity of the situation. They're in they would be prosecuted for assisting or giving material support to terrorism in multiple countries fifty seven unnamed countries. According to your last press release. Could you be a bit more specific about where these countries are always all regions of the world. It's across the globe. I mean we go from a to y afghanistan. Albania canada china denmark egypt poland portugal romania spain. Saudi arabia sudan to gca stan united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland. The united states and yemen. So these are countries that are spread across the globe but it is notable that. There's a really significant number of nationals from western states countries. Who have both the means and the capacity to bring their nationals home and are refusing to do so. Do you think there's an appetite to bring these people home. Though i think you have to create the conditions conducive to bring them home we the mandate i've been in countries where they have been brought home and the one thing i have seen is that governments are prepared to spend political capital to make the case for children and to accept their responsibilities to women and children and that requires an act of political will. It requires the language of compassion. It requires the language of comfort. It requires the language of calling children. And what's most challenging here. Is that a number of states. The states who called themselves human rights activists the states who say they have human rights foreign policies states who say that they are feminist in their foreign policies are not prepared to bring their women and children home. And so that's profoundly disappointing.
S6 E4 - How do I use my Post-9/11 GI Bill? - FULL
"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking. What are your family members asking or join the post. Nine eleven veterans families facebook group and post your question. There have block of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accept the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ well. I'll see you right back here. Two weeks from the day and the next veteran questions we'll be asking is this. How do i increase my va. Disability rating ohio and for the special gift. I promised every thursday evening is hosting a sous vide for justice guys who are veterans. Sorry ladies you're coming soon. The training for that. We will be walking through the resolved journey. Together get your copy of resolve for thirty percent off using the code asked and just head over to courage fight again dot com and click on. Get the book and if you like to join the group on the lincoln the show notes to let me know. And i'll be in touch tone next time. Thanks for We served now.

Egypt: Archaeologists unearth ancient beer factory in Abydos
"American and Egyptian archaeologists unearth what could be the oldest known beer factory at one of the most prominent archaeological sites in ancient
The hidden history found in your teeth
"And why don't you to think about the image that you see when i say. One word migrant pictured a crowded boat in rough waters people clinging to the top of a freight train or crossing desert wearing worn out shoes. This is what we see in the news cycle. Twenty four hours day after day story after story people who are desperate fleeing wars climate change fleeing poverty but in reality most people move from common reasons to get a good education to find a job to find members or to fall in love. And this is nothing. New archaeologists like me have been studying migration and finding that people for hundreds even thousands of years have been moving around the globe from europe's earliest farmers to vikings to pirates roman gladiators and even the nfl caveman and people like you and me. Mobility is one of the things that makes us human people move and we know this because of something that you brought with you here tonight you carry it with the many places to work to the gym to bed and even in the shower. It's not your cell phone and it's not any person your pockets it's you it's your body and your bones all two hundred and six them. I brought mine because your bones will tell the story of your life even a single two and we know that teeth. Tell us many things for your dentist. For example he or she can see if you floss or if like me really like candy and you might end up with some cavities. And if my dentist is here tonight will see you monday. And i've been very good but your teeth also tell you something about migration you take your tongue and run it along. Incisors these front teeth. The back of those will be flat. If you have european or african ancestry if you feel sort of scoop or shovel shape your ancestors may have been native american or migrated from asia. If we go inside the tooth so the pulp cavity we may be able to extract the dna. And see if your ancestors came from egypt or england or both but we're not interested as much in your family's migration history as yours and we're that's where we go to the tooth enamel what it's made out of to try and find out if a person moved and even when they moved and it's based on one simple idea that you are which eats all the minerals and elements in the food like calcium oxygen. Which is the h two sodium in. Salt can tell us something about your diet. So we know if you or white bread if you prefer pork chicken or if you really like seafood there other elements that. Tell us where that food came from. And that includes sulfur strontium oxygen and even lead. Which of course you don't want very much of but these tell us where the food comes from and that can tell us where you were when you you're eating and that is what archeologists us to identify ancient migration if we look inside the tooth enamel conc- for example in your first molar. This is the one that was forming along with your baby teeth. But it's only when you still have and that tells us where you were living as an infant if we look at wisdom tooth which is the last tooth the form. That enamel would have been mineralized before you hit your teenage years. So we know where you're living then if we look at your bones and in that pause you just formed new bone cells. That's telling us what you're eating and what you're doing just about the past decade of life so we can really track where people moved and we've looked at this for hundreds and thousands of individuals to identify migration in the past. So i'd like to introduce you to some ancient migrants. If we go back in time sixteen hundred years we can go to the city of coupon where the people lived in. What's honduras if we came around the year four hundred ad who might have walked into broad plazas under really hot tropical sun was shining onto bright red painted buildings altars and carved statues in front of them. If we'd come on the right day we might have seen. The inauguration of ruler can initiate kook mall roughly translated that means son faced first mccaw. The maya rulers had really great names bird jaguar. Dark lady great but what was really neat about yash. Kusumo is that he established a dynasty that lasted for more than four hundred years. And every depiction we have him. Show him in foreign clothing. This is what people weren't central mexico which was not in the maya region and actually hundreds of miles away so for a long time. Archaeologists thought that this was a foreign king but his teeth told a different story by sampling. His first smaller has wisdom tooth and bone. We found that he in fact probably came from somewhere in the maya region so he wasn't migrant but he made lived in multiple places before coming to colpon even though he dressed like he was a foreigner
Modern Oracle divination with dream interpretation
"Welcome to kits myths and mysteries. I'm your host kit crumb today in my month. Long investigation into different forms of detonation. I've locked up word. Divination is defined as the art or practice that seeks to force your for tell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens unusual insights or intuitive perception with that definition in mind decide to take a look at dream analysis in ancient times people saw dream says vessels of meaning that contain divine messages and had the power to alter history alexander. The great was on the verge of breaking ground for his new city. When a gray haired man appeared to him in a dream the man told him about an island off the coast of egypt when alexandra woke he scrapped the building side and instead found an island on which to construct alexandria today. People still look for meaning in their dreams who are methods of interpreting. Dreams have changed since alexander's day. Our desire to understand them as much the same truth. No one knows why we dream or why we dream what we dream. Dreams are sensory experiences. That happened while you're sleeping. In a dream you see things here sounds and feel physical sensations. You may or may not remember your dreams when you wake up but everybody dreams. Freud pioneered a body of research based on dreams later young expanded the dream theory with his own ideas. Modern co creative dream theories consider how you respond to dream imagery and how you can use that information to guide your waking life now going back a little bit. The ancient sumerians messa taymiyya have left evidence of dream interpretation dating back to at least thirty one hundred bc throughout mesopotamia. History dreams were always held to be extremely important for devastation. And mesopotamia and king paid close attention to them dream analysis also referred to as dream interpretation hinges on the idea that you can attach meaning to your dreams. This process has been used in a wide variety of settings including ancient civilizations a variety of religions including christianity. But keep in mind the dreams you dream pertained to you and your life. Beware of using a standard interpretation for example. If your dream that you can't remember the combination to your school locker. It means that something you are trying to do is being blocked. This interpretation may apply to one person but not to another. Your dreams are yours often. When we visit a fortune teller that lays out the future. We tend to seek a path to the aspect of our future similar to the idea of seeking validation. If you believe that you are slow learner you seek develop that belief or if you wake up in a bad mood and decide is probably going to be a rotten day. Chances are that you will without being conscious of the fact seek out events that make that day pretty bad and validate your early morning declaration. That is going to be a bad day. You know a self fulfilling prophecy now. Returning dream interpretation. Listen and take note then go home or to a neutral place where you're quiet alone and look closely at the result of your dreams as interpreted determine what dreams really do symbolize something going on in your life.

Egypt and the Arab Winter
"Arab spring. Well who doesn't love a democratic revolution. Who's not moved by. Brave protests is calling for the downfall of a brutal regime well a decade ago. That's precisely what happened in the streets of cairo and alexandria a wall of sound as egypt's vice president. I'm sulaiman announces that president hosni mubarak will step down the merciful. The compassionate seasons mahamat house entrusting mubarak has decided a month as president of the republic might have seconds after the announcement. Cairo erupted in celebrations. We are extremely happy. We are all aspiring future for egypt. We are not depending on the government anymore. This is the egyptian people. And this is the base of the new constitution now. The worldwide far the greater the egyptian uprising that culminated in the downfall of mubarak. This is ten years ago so february. Twenty eleven all. That was entirely understandable. Wasn't it after all all revolutions at least in the first few days they blissful and remember every tarn across the water arab world trembled. We already had president ali. Fleeing tunisia albany mubarak of course was toppled. Gaddafi was killed by fellow libyans. Assad of course. Vice the syrian sunni rebellion however. The egyptian uprising did not deliver a democratic outcome. Nor did the cycled arab spring really amount to a more liberal future for the region. Why noah feldman is professor of law at harvard law school. He's author of the arab winter. Tragedy noah welcome to. Abc's radio national. Thank you for having me take us back a decade ago so to the wave of popular protests that swept the middle east. There was something profoundly moving for anybody who cares about freedom in watching large numbers of people say enough is enough. We want to have a say in how things are done in our country and we want dignity and we want social justice and we want freedom. And that i think was the reason that all over the world people responded so positively to the arab spring. It's also the reason that the impulse to have these kinds of protests and change spread across the arabic speaking world to so many countries and so there was a sense of optimism but also a sense of gee what will come next and i think in some countries more than others a worry that what might come next might not be as positive as the protesters hoped what comes next. I mean for generations. It was widely believed that arabs. As opposed to site asians europeans africans latin americans. The widespread view was that arabs. Were uniquely allergic to democracy and of course the arab spring challenged narrative yet use site new book quote. It brought little good. The arab spring ultimately made many people's lives worse than they were before house are. That's a painful realization to reach especially for someone like me who believes very fundamentally that there is no country no culture no group of people organized by region or religion or language who have less in the way of aspiration to self government and freedom than any other but ultimately the reason i can conclude that it brought more harm than good. Is that in egypt. The process that began with democratization and experiment ended in a new dictatorship is bad and in many ways worse than the one that came before in syria the process of arab spring ultimate gave way to a vicious improve civil war. The gun to be sure by the syrian regime in its own defense that left almost half the population displaced either internally or externally and killed hundreds of thousands of people and pretty much the place in the arab world where things are measurably better as a result of the arab. Spring is the tiny country of tunisia. Which has actually the odds to build a functioning constitutional democracy. They still a lot of other problems. But that's just a tiny tiny piece of the much bigger picture in which things are either no better or in some cases much worse

Stopping human traffickers in the Sahel
"The work of the un and its partners never stops to prevent human traffickers from exploiting desperate people in west and central africa as they embark on dangerous journeys across these heart desert in search of opportunities further north and in europe to explain what is being done to tackle smuggling gangs. I spoke to vessel coastal. He's the un refugee agency's special envoy for the central mediterranean situation of concern to us are refugees. War already formed protection in the country normally neighboring country or four gene but because of the issues relating to covid many lost their job loss sometime their shelter on some may consider moving on to try to find better protection elsewhere. One thing. I know that people might be keen to find out about how cold it has affected or impacted on migration. Because what's clear from the report released. Is that human smugglers human traffickers. They haven't had any trouble in going around the restrictions have they know absolutely. It's a market opportunity for smugglers traffic yesterday diversified. Their will for try to make some more attractive for these people to embark on those donates on in order to sit come vent a border closure in particular land border closure. They take higher risk on some of the people unfortunately trapping those journeys. Could you maybe tell me some life stories that are featured in your report from the u n refugee agency. There's one that really struck me a somali boy who was travelling unaccompanied from somalia to ethiopia to sedan and then to libya than ultimately to malta. Absolutely on we get to lia people like that they don't stop at the first country of asylum because editor condition are not there editor because they were confronted to incident in the first place. They arrive on the feel. It's not safe address some time. It's because the traffickers has light to them and told them well. We have a job lineup for you in libya. Make you cross through europe on. Those people don't realize that even before reaching libya they're going to get into trouble while crossing swatter countries because the so-called gentle smugglers actually turn very quickly nasty traffic years. Yeah let's just back that up with some data. I know you're report. Says more than five hundred people died trying to cross the sea from libya and twenty twenty often on overcrowded inflatable boats. So what is the. Unhcr the urine refugee agency trying to do with local governments when with local governments. We try to tell them to combat trafficking activity because there are too many known human traffickers that have never been brought to justice on that applies to many coastal states but we trying to work also with communities to tell them to offer another alternative that there might be other solutions on the weights too late when the people reach libya which wisden sarah territory because going to be tempting for people to want those boats on belief the traffic yourself telling them pretty. Tell me about some of your community initiatives. There's one that you cool telling the real story that tries to prevent smuggling and trafficking exactly debts targeting eastern africa mentally eritreans on somali we have mobilized diaspora in europe on the square to let people tell their story. What up to them. So it's sunny filter. Dissolve videos disarm chat forum where people talk to people in their language on. Tell them exactly what has happened to them to try to demystify. On debunk the narrative of the traffic use. Where's your focus at the moment because libya's being in turmoil for so long and it was such a poll for migrants. But we hear that bikini fast has a really growing displacement crisis to yes. there's been a significant increase. In displacement in the western side countries i mean most trillion people displaced because of the conflict. Not that many people leave the region. Manley malians few citizens from rookie. Necessa but many stay-at-home was displacing. Nesia stay nesia. They don't on baucom those dangerous johnny. So that's one area of focus western sale. The other one is the crisis linked to what has done in tigray recently over the last two months on the displacement weariness you appear on ensued. How can you tell me about some of the solutions for placing people who need international protection with their families and talking about family reunification. There are some pilot projects that you've launched with egypt sudan and others. Yes we try to look again at the narrative of many states saying you know but legal pathways exists. People need to use them rather than to embark on the dangerous journeys on. We realized that in reality goes legal. Press quiz extremely difficult to access. If you are refugee camp in eastern sudan you may not get the commission to leave the count to go to the capital city. Where you know. The unbe skilled the country where you have release may not be open or may not exist at all so what we try is facilitate access to the documentation on simply procedural four people. Could we quickly go back to the unaccompanied somaliland. Do you know what happened to him. He ended up in multi indian. Didn't he yes he did you. I don't know what happened to afterwards but the majority of those unaccompanied children from somalia depending where they come from. They will get a protective status in europe in principle
Hisham Matar Reads Colm Tibn
"Heike sean lowe deborah so the last time that we were doing this together we talked about shakespeare's memory by bore. His one minus one is a very different story a very different kind of story. What draws you to it. Well story. I love but it's also. I wanted to choose a story that i had read in the magazine and remember vividly the the encounter with us and it just affected me very very deeply and a for how simple it is. It is in very subtle ways. It's about such complex things. And i think for that reason over the years since i read it occasionally fought back on it and found more and more layers than us with the stories about a man from ireland living in the us who returns home As his mother is dying. And you've also written in fiction and nonfiction about exile about the loss of a parent about estrangement. There's something in the subject matter that speaks to you or is it more in the writing. Come tobin does that very well in his work at something that he manages to open up. That's space of ruthlessness that has touched very very much. So i'm sure. I'm sure there's a connection. I also have a very slightly embarrassing our relationship to ireland and to irish literature that i think has made me susceptible to us. Don't be embarrassed embarrassing. Because when i was seventeen years old i had come under the influence of all these great irish writers felt so drunk by their brilliance beckett's and enjoys keats and and i thought this is got to be a magical place having never been to ireland knowing nothing about ireland except those writers and i made a promise to myself seventy that where i go to ireland. Must kiss the ground. And i'm not fond of kissing the ground general for that reason to stay true to by seventeen year old self. I never went to ireland. I avoid until. I was shortlisted for a prize. My first book and the price was being judged by a writer that i admire took. Healy passed away a few years back and the mc for the prize was going to be calm toibin. So i thought. I can't miss that i must go and And it was magical but to negotiates kissing the ground. When i got off the airplane. I pretended as though i was betting tiber shoelace and kissed my finger and touch the ground. I thought that's a good compromise. But you know from that trip. Really a group of irish rises dirk mitch and roddy doyle and a few other writers of took me really embraced me and made me feel very welcome and i had such a natural connection and correspondence with them that has stretched for a long time to to this day. And i think it's got to be connected in part at least to some of the experiences that irish writers have gone through sadly whether it's censorship or exile and so they felt they felt very close to me an uber reading these irish writers. Seventeen year old. You were in egypt. I was in cairo My family had left libya but seven years before then and certainly for me. Then there were the most powerful reading experience. If you want to call it does in the english language. Partly because of what i was into but also i think because of what we're
The Tempest Stele
"This artifact is at its heart a big stone block it is a slab. It is a big slab made of cal site. That's currently in multiple fragments. I think through at least three major fragments And they were recovered from the temple complex of karnak which is in the ancient egyptian city of thebes near the modern Upper egypt city of luxor. And this artifact was recovered by archaeologists. I think in the late nineteen forties early nineteen fifties Karnak of course this big beautiful temple complex you may have seen. It represented digitally and transformers movies. Where they're big robots slugging around there or as an actual shooting location in the spy. Who loved me. Did the transformers really battle here. I think they did at some point. The transporter the it's part of the the raison d'etre of of Transformers to eventually just slam through and demolish every work of humankind like all artifacts and landscapes must be ground into sand by the transformers until only transformers remain right. Okay just a baron. Featureless earth completely smooth but with transformers with mack trucks and jeeps and stuff. But anyway. what's the deal with this slab. The tempest de originally stood about one point. Eight meters tall so about six feet tall and it bears an inscription texts that was copied on both sides in these horizontal lines. But it also has imagery at the top so to quote from One of the papers that we're going to be referencing today. I think that this description comes from this. First paper that was published by karen pollinger foster robert k. Rittner and benjamin. Our foster in the journal of near eastern studies in nineteen ninety-six quote above the horizontal body of each text is a lou net with to adore st- scenes and brief vertical labels unlike the parallel text. The tulu net labels display minor variation in wording both faces preserve dual scenes of the king followed by female deity of fecundity carrying offering trays. And these traits have like fruits and vegetables on them. So you've got this big old texts. That's on both sides in this image of a king and a lady who represents fertility Carrying up some nice foodstuffs fruits and vegetables. Nice plant matter and so here. I think maybe we should actually just read the full text of the tempus teela because it's not all that long And this is something that i personally really love. May maybe other people aren't as interested in design but it just reading the text of of texts that are this old like these. Ancient egyptian inscriptions really does kind of put me in an altered state of consciousness. You know it's like I i feel like i'm inhabiting a mind. That is so separated from me by time and culture that it's a little bit creepy. I mean to to a certain extent. That's that's exactly what's happening right. The transfer of information across the ages. Yeah and in. There's this like weird tingling down at the bottom of my brain where i just feel like. There's a lot that's really important that i'm not understanding but i'm getting just the slightest hint of what it is coming through in the translation Well that's the tingler you've got that. That's the vincent price movie. Well i know what you're talking about with okay. This english translation is by the american egyptologist. Robert honor who is the one of the authors on a couple of studies that we're going to be mentioning today now again. The steelers text is damaged. So there are some gaps and some of these have been filled in with. What is very likely what their contents were so. There's just some texts that we don't have but we feel very confident you know. This is what it would have been another parts or just left blank. Where there's less certainty and i guess when we get one of those blank spots just sort of pause for a second in the reading so here it goes long live the horace great of manifestations he of the two ladies pleasing of birth the golden horus who binds the two lands king of the upper and lower egypt. Neb feddie raw son of raw ahmosis living forever. Now then his majesty came raw himself had appointed him to be king of upper egypt. Then his majesty dwelt at the town of said. Jeff tally in the district. Just to the south of kandara while on raw. Lord of the thrones of the two lands was in thebes. It was his majesty who sailed south to offer bread beer and everything good and pure now after the offering then attention was given in this district now then the cold image of this god at his body was installed in this temple while he was enjoy. Now then this great god desired. His majesty was god's declared their discontent. The gods caused the sky to come in a tempest of rain with darkness in the western region and the sky unleashed without cessation louder than the cries of the masses more powerful than while. The rain raged on the mountains louder than the noise of the cataract which is at elephants. Every house every quarter that they reached floating on the water like skiffs of papyrus opposite the royal residence for a period of days while a torch could not be lit in the two lands. Then his majesty said how much greater this is than the wrath of the great god than the plans of the gods then his majesty descended to his boat with his council following him while the crowds on the east and west had hidden faces having no clothing on them after the manifestation of the god's wrath then his majesty reach the interior of thebes with gold confronting gold for this statue so that he meaning on raw received that which he desired then. His majesty began to reestablish the two lands to drain the flooded territories without his to provide them with silver with gold with copper with oil and cloth of every bolt that could be desired. The and his majesty made himself comfortable inside the palace life prosperity health. His majesty was informed that the mortuary concessions had been entered by water with the tomb. Chambers collapsed the funerary mansions undermined in the pyramids fallen having been made into that which was never made. Then his majesty commanded to restore the temples which had been into ruin in this entire land to refurbish the monuments of the gods to erect their closure walls to provide the sacred in the noble chamber to mask the secret places to introduce into their shrines. The cult statues which were cast to the ground to set up the braziers to erect offering tables to establish their bread offerings to double the income of the personnel to put the land into its former state. Then it was done in accordance with everything that his majesty had commanded
Examining The Diplomatic Deal Between Israel, United Arab Emirates
"Newly established diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates are having an effect. The U. A. E is welcoming thousands of Israelis President Trump's administration. Promoted these diplomatic ties as a historic breakthrough, which was true Israel had been isolated from many Arab nations for decades. Israel's leaders says the agreement proves that peace does not have to come at a cost. NPR's Daniel Estrin traveled to Dubai and the U. S a toe ask just what kind of peace is being promoted? It's not hard to spot Israeli tourists and devise busy gold market way. Silas are very noisy, and they understand us here. I feel no tour guide. Lisi is wearing a sequined shirt and a blue scarf around her strawberry red hair she poses for pictures with elaborate gold wedding garments in the window displays. Later, she'll ski at Dubai's famous indoor ski slope in Jordan. I don't know if I will feel like this Not in Egypt Way make fine here and next month I come again. Egypt and Jordan share a cold peace with Israel and most other Arab countries refuse relations with Israel, as long as Palestinians don't have independence, but the U A E. I gave Israelis what they have long sought. A sense of acceptance in the region were wanted in our country Don't feel wanted by the Arabs. And here they want me here. L a needs Ziegel Boy Wonder's Dubai Spice Market. With six friends, all elementary school teachers and Moratti's in the market are reluctant to speak on tape about their countries embrace of Israel, which is still controversial in the region. I asked the Israeli school teacher is this piece? I don't know if it's a real piece or not. I think that both countries have interest in this peace because we need them. They need us. The Israelis gain business opportunities. One Israeli I met, signed a deal to grow lettuce using pipes and the Emirati desert. And the Emma Ronnie's Get Israel's blessing to buy American made F 35 fighter jets, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco also normalized ties with Israel. And it was the U. S offering the incentives without concessions by Israel so long to watch a loom. Which alone middle. What's MMA Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoted the U A e deal as peace for peace instead of the old paradigm land for peace. He says It sets a precedent. Israel doesn't need to give up land to the Palestinians to win friends in the Arab world. But I Moratti's still want Palestinians on their side U A e ambassador to the U S. You said fellow Taipeh. We still want to see a two state solution. We still want to see a negotiation between the two parties. Perhaps just perhaps we might be able to have more influence and more leverage when we do have a relationship with Israel. Emirati commentators say the love fest Israelis feel Just the honeymoon. Tough love will come later. But Israelis are seeing it more Netanyahu's way. Everybody by him from then a tourist to get just his first name to discuss his political views, says the Moratti's embrace proves Israel doesn't need to make sacrifices. Rather, it's the Palestinians who will feel pressured to follow their Arab brothers and make a deal with Israel. Even a prominent Israeli peace advocate returned from a trip to Dubai, saying, I think that the Palestinians need to rethink the way they treat Israel. Femi Paris The son of the late Israeli President Shimon Paris, runs the Paris Center for Peace that reaches out to Palestinians. He wants to promote business with the eh Moratti's and approach he wants Palestinians to adopt. I think Their point of view has being that's first sold the political issues and then we can start normalizing things and move forward. I think those days have gone. I believe that the only way for us to really, really achieve peace, comprehensive peace And save the region from backwardness is to focus on moving together forward. I put that to Nabil Shaath, adviser to the Palestinian president, He says. Palestinians can't just move forward and ignore their day to day realities is an occupying our land. Israel continues to Great second mints in our villages destroyed our houses. And yet It is legal had 23 is very better. Who is it? That should be doing what to whom the occupied the occupiers. Palestinians and many countries say real peace requires Israel to compromise land for peace. Shot says the U. A e deal removes the incentive for Israel to do that, Even if the Emirati say they'll keep pushing for it. There's radiated out of the problem, not us on the right. Is that looking for exclusive or what? There's not sisters myself and lewdness. Be that fan board down a desert dune. Their Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, not from the occupied territories.

How to Choose a Safe Seat for Your Baby to Eat with High Chair Designer Kirsti Vandraas
"Today. We're talking about the seat in which your baby learns how to eat. That's right highchairs. And when it comes to hide your design there is no one more well known for icon design in this space than peter obstacle of norway. Peter offset designed the trip trap highchair in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. When he looked around for a chair that allowed his son to sit in a natural way at the grownups table and because nonesuch chair existed he designed what is now known as the iconic trip chair basically so he could include his son in as he says life round the table. So many of you may have this chair that trip trap or recognize it. It's sometimes like to a ladder so the trip trap is a wooden chair with an adjustable seat and adjustable footplate and grows with your child so the company that peter designed it for which is called. Shutt- is headquartered in norway. And they've actually sold more than twelve million trip trap as so it is one of the. Most globally recognized chairs. Personally i love this chair. I have in us seven of the trip traps around the table for my seven children. They've really been fabulous investment wonderful. Especially if you have a smaller space where you're feeding your baby or babies or if you're feeding multiples it's wonderful because it has a much smaller footprints like not one of those highchairs. It's gonna take up your kitchen. So while peter fix trip trap was designed and launched in one thousand nine hundred ninety two when his son was little forty years later in twenty thirteen obstacle launched. Another chair called the nomi and this was really his realization of his vision for designing the next generation highchair one. That's dedicated to his grandchildren. So peter obstacles now eighty one at the time of this recording. He continues to work every day. And cures deep vandross is a physiotherapist and an ergonomic who works very closely with peter. In fact she's worked with peter object for the last thirteen years. So kirsty is going to be on the podcast today. Sharing peter's vision and philosophy about the chairs that he originally designed for his child and his grandchildren. Now that millions of families of used around the world. So if you have a trip trap or a nomi- or if you're in the market for a highchair that will continue to serve your family and your child long after these initial stages of starting solids. I think you're really going to enjoy this interview. Because the scandinavian design principles and the philosophies held by peter and explained today by st are so very different from what we may have in mind when we go to select a seat for our baby to learn how to eat so today on the podcast. Kirstin i are going to be talking about the difference in american and european safety standards. Why norwegian families do not actually strap their babies of their toddlers into the degree or the extent that americans may think is necessary. This is going to be very eye opening for a lot of you certainly was for me as kind of a control freak. Mom we'll be chatting about why the trip trap and the nomi were designed with the very obvious absence of trey and what that means. and then. How the adjustable foot rest is probably the most important safety and design component missing from most highchairs today. So i hope you enjoy this interview with cure. Steve andros from the peter obsta company. Kirsty thank you so much for joining us. I am so excited to have the opportunity to interview you. It's catching get now. If you can. Would you tell us a little bit about your background. And how you know the whole life story maybe. How did you get into product design. And then how did you come to. Work with. Peter ops vic. Oh it's a long story. I am a physiotherapist anais. I started working in our major hospital here in in ostler with people with back and neck problems you know. People came into the hospital more or less paralyzed with pain and never thought they would be able to come up and walk again and with a treatment lots of guidance we build them up again and they went home and they were fine and had a lotta for knowledge with how to behave to avoid back and neck problems then. I saw that it was difficult for them. To use to knowledge they had when they went back to back. So i sold our institution equivalent to osha would been interesting place to work to see if i was able to get other people to create positive working environments where you could work but still keep your health so i spent ten years in our show in charge of ergonomics and then i started sinking. What about getting into detail. The totality because their via opium much more than chair tables but share and tables reports on the totality and. I wanted to see if we could make chairs in such way that you didn't talk to have problems with your body after sitting. Who working so. I started working ritual. Company that developed sitting solution for the working person unlock was contested. Interesting period thomas there for six teen years and then i met peter ops week. One of a number of designers. We used not process another lost twelve years. We're solely read. Peter and peter's sir designs promoting them talking about taking part in the product development. So that was a long story. But you know the background and How i ended up here. And you're still actively working with peter. Is that correct. Yes yes wonderful. Can you tell us a little bit about the history of the design of the trip trap and then the nomi highchairs and especially with regard to promoting freedom and fellowship. The trick drop chair was developed in the beginning of the seventies piotre just had his son wounding sixty nine will sitting on an ordinary highchair s. You know the high chair has been around for for generations. you know egypt. They use highchair. the hunt. Chance in their mini is an pizza hut his son sitting in hijab but then when he reached a year and a half you know he didn't really need to sit with the sort of support all around his waist. He was looking for other chairs that he could place his son around the table together with the rest of the company that did not exist so he had to make his own amber trip chapels but one then in nineteen seventy two and i think he did something very clever back then because he did not make it to fit into what you call the design of the seventies he had the distinct bischel feature in the seventies and the result is that the chair still look quite Modern had he designed it giving it the visual design of what the kitchen look like. Back in nineteen seventy two. It would have been outdated very old looking chair today.

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Alex zekovic is a staff columnist and the architecture critic at the global mail. Hello alex hey jordan. Why don't we start. I was gonna say with a simple definition. But but maybe it's not that simple. But what is the fifteen minutes city. Where does the concept come from. And what does it describe. So the idea is actually an old idea It goes back at least fifty years in the world of city planning and really it hearkens back to previous models of cities built before the car and the basic idea. Is that everything you need for. Daily living is within walking distance of your home so the idea is not a new one. The rhetoric or the phrase of fifteen minutes city was popularized by the mayor of paris. Over the last few years. I need. I'll go Because she is interested in pursuing the fifteen minutes city returning peres into as much as possible. A fifteen minute city so. This is kind of a familiar idea. That has fresh relevance today. How do you define it for analysis purposes. When you're looking to see whether a certain city or neighborhood would qualify so there are a bunch of different definitions of the term and the one that paris uses actually includes workplaces or generally tries to include workplaces with other things. If you include workplaces this becomes a little bit trickier because trying to find to link up. Everyone's home and everyone's workplace in a large city is very complex. The more familiar and lord sort of less controversial definition is that you have the necessities of daily living within walking distance of home for the article. I did for the global mail with some colleagues a little while ago. We used a measurement called amenity density developed by statistics canada and see 'em each see and that defines it as having a grocery store a pharmacy and a public transit stop within one kilometer and having a daycare a primary school and a library within one and a half kilometers. And then there's a larger circle for health facility and larger circle for places of employment. So you know the least the most straightforward way is to say you know. Pick up a prescription go shopping. Be able to catch a bus or train. You should be able to do all of this things within roughly a ten minute walk of where you are. Why is that set up so desirable. I'm sorry if that sounds like an obvious question but just you know what does it impact. Well yeah i mean it is. It sounds really straightforward. Because when we think of our cultural ideas of what a city is or how people should live. I mean you. Think of sesame street It seems easy but the fact is that most people in north america don't have that at all. I mean the large majority of people in canada as is also true in the united states live in what planners will call car oriented suburbs or car-oriented places. If you have that then you know you. Effectively are limited to being able to survive comfortably to having a car. If you don't have a car to available to do those basic things you know your life becomes much more complex you effectively become a second class citizen and this is obviously -cations for youth and teenagers. It has obvious implications for anyone with disabilities And and there's a strong overlap of course between people with disabilities and seniors but You know this is a very large in growing issue for many canadians. Many north americans. Who are egypt in places where they need to have cars and may not always be able to

"Us The creed. Animals of Ancient Egypt dedicated to to Kayla in California. Hello this is not and I'm here with some more from Herodotus. The father of history who lived two thousand five hundred years ago. Herodotus was a Greek who liked to travel he went around much of the Persian empire including Egypt and wrote down what he found there affair. Bits of what we know about life in ancient Egypt comes to us from Herodotus in the last episode. I told you about some of the wild animals of Ancient Egypt. Herodotus mentioned in this episode. I'm going to be focusing on the animals that the Egyptians worshiped as gods the holiest of all animals in ancient Egypt were cows and bulls. The ancient Egyptians were not the only people to worship cattle. For example in ancient times bulls were worshiped on the Greek island of Crete. The home of the Bull God the minor tour and cattle sacred to Hindus to this day. And perhaps you know the story of Moses from the Bible he and his fellow Israelites escaped from captivity in Egypt and crossed the desert on the way they paused. While Moses climbed up Mount Sinai to fetch a stone tablet on which were written the ten commandments or laws. Like you shall not steal and you shall not kill well. Moses was away up the mountain some of his followers lost faith in God and began to worship a golden calf. So why would people worship cows well? In many religions Gods and animals are associated with ideas. People might worship bull because he represents strength and masculinity and they might worship a milk giving cow because she represents motherhood and nurturing perhaps they would prey to their cattle God's for a strong healthy family and nation in ancient Egypt booze cows were sometimes seen as Gods on earth. For example in the city of Memphis people worshipped Abboud called apoptosis otherwise known as happy the priests of Memphis always kept one real life will to worship. They always chose a bull to represent. Apps who was black with a white crescent shape on his side or white triangle on his forehead when the bull died they found another bill with similar markings. But the ancient Egyptians. We're not vegetarians and unlike Hindus today they did sometimes eat beef. The sacrifice of a bull was an extremely solemn ceremony for the ancient Egyptians. The priests would choose a black bull and check that it did not have a single hair that was not completely black when they heard killed it they would cook the meat of the body and they saved the head of the bull they prayed that all evil and bad fortune should be transferred onto the head of the boo then they will take the head to the market and if there were any Greek traders. There herodotus tells us they would sell it to them. Presumably the Greek traders did not suspect that the head was full of Sin and evil. But if the priests could not find any Greeks they through the Bulls head into the river and got rid of it that way. This odd ceremony was a way of getting rid of evil. There's also a similar idea in the Bible when the people of Israel prayed all lessons onto a goat and then cast the goat out into the desert to this day. If we say that. Somebody is a scapegoat. We mean that they are being blamed for other people's wrongdoing booze. Were far from the only sacred creatures in ancient Egypt. The God horus was often shown as a man with the head of a hunting bird. Called a Falkand falcons have fantastic eyesight. And as they saw through the sky they can spot tiny animals on the ground. Kings are also meant to be farsighted and wise and so horror us the Falcon God was closely associated with the Jip- Shin Phero. The faeroe may even have been the God horse in human form or so. The ancient Egyptians believed I mentioned in an earlier episode. How the Egyptians loved cats cats kept family safe by killing snakes and rats? The cat goddess was best debt and every year they ancient Egyptians celebrated her with a huge party. They sailed down the Nile to her temple. At per bast singing and dancing and rocking the boats on the way her auditors tells us that if a home caught fire people would save the cats before trying to save themselves and if a household cat died the whole family would shave their eyebrows to show that grief. And if anyone killed a cat they were guilty of murder and penalty was death which shows how much the ancient Egyptians respected cats by the way our word cat comes from the North African word cater but the ancient Egyptian word for cat was Mao because cats make a sound like Mao dogs. Were also important. The God anubis who guarded the underworld added Dog's head. The head of a new best looks a little bit like a Greyhound. They're also dog breeds today. Call passenger and Pharaoh hounds that come down to us from ancient Egypt. Rich Egyptians kept gazelles that were renowned for that grace and beauty. A Gazelle by the way is a type of African dear. The Egyptian Queen is Yelm. Cab loved her pet so much that when the deer died she was mummified and placed with jewels inside. An ornate box called a sarcophagus. The gods so big had the head of a crocodile and the priests of his temples kept sacred crocodiles and fed them on the most tasty cuts of meat and honey cakes. And of course the mighty and mysterious spinks often shown in giant statues. The size of pyramids was a man with the head of a lion for me. The animal gods are a large part of what makes ancient Egypt so fascinating along with a mighty pyramids the ancient mummies the rich treasures and the barges floating down the River Nile. It really was a civilization like no other. And I'm delighted to dedicate this story to to Kayla in California who is around five and a half years old. Her Sisters Brooke and Samantha. Tell me that they listened to story almost every day particularly while they color after they eat dinner. Well thank you.

"We can be sure that every king had a harem full of wives and never TD stories. The one that's really been being uncovered now because when you think of never TD, what do you think of think of that bus that like very tall hat high cheekbones? Yeah, I think of hers being like a this regal sort of figure the paragon of beauty. This this beautiful thing. We don't think of her as as being powerbroker as being somebody who puts Egypt back to rights again. And that's really her story that she needs to be resuscitate for moving Egypt back in the direction of the old religious ways and kind of a truth and reconciliation. King also side note, never TD had six daughters and everyone's like, oh, congratulations. That's sucks. No sons. So her husband was like, well, shoot. Okay. Okay. I'll just also marry my sister and together. They had a boy baby named king Tutankhamun. King Tut is often called maybe a little too casually. I'm not sure took the throne at nine ruled for ten years until his untimely death around the age of nineteen. Now, experts suspect it was an infected leg fracture that took him down, but he also had like several strains of malaria, his mummy is the oldest known case of malaria on record, which is like pretty cool. So another little feather in his cap. Now, he's said to have had a bit of a useful temper, but he married, he had two children who did not survive infancy perhaps because his wife was also his half sister just normal political stuff. So speaking of male versus female rulers, which brings up the question of, do females ruled differently than men in Egypt today, anytime do they win? Well, I mean, if. If you're Sarah Huckabee Sanders and you're working on behalf of the patriarch look, everybody wants to make this an attack on a woman in a quality. What about the constant attacks that he receives? The rest of us. The answer is no, but if you're a woman who has a different perspective not to protect a patriarch, then I think the answer is yes, and you might be more interested in cutting deals in thinking with nuance in making decisions that please more rather than one faction. I think that question needs still to be answered and we haven't allowed it to be answered because we don't let women into power to different question. Did I mention that her new book comes out on number six, which is also voting day for the midterms in the US just saying just circle that day, make a plan for it. A lot of good things happening our next Queen to become king as a woman named Hawass threat of dynasty nineteen. And she's really a bad ass because she comes in as a Queen. To a king who dies precipitously and then access regent for a boy who's too young to rule who's not her own son. Then when he dies, she rules as sole king on her own just for a couple of years. Okay. So this queen's husband dies. She also helps out a baby king. He dies maybe by her own hand, and then she becomes king and then she dies somewhat mysteriously. So if you've ever been nervous about like getting a promotion at work or asking for a raise, just go for it. Nothing can beat the workplace. Anxiety of ancient bloodline monarchy's I'ma, right? She's involved in a civil war as a prime operator on her own like no other woman, and it seems she was punished for it..
