Polar vortex triggering dangerous winter weather across U.S.
"Ah Polar Vortex weather system is bringing severe weather conditions to several states, according to The New York Times, roughly 150 million Americans are in the storm's path. Utilities in 14 states have already started rolling outages due to low electricity supplies. Jennifer McNatt from the National Weather Service Southern Region says this weather event is rare putting this into context and you look back in our history over temperatures. There's this event right now. It's probably similar to two other events that we've seen in this area. One occurred back in 1989 and the other occurred in 18 99. That's how significant this cold outbreak is. Uh, somewhere in between those two very significant event, so it definitely ranks up there in how unusual it is for this area. Meteorologists Eileen Devora explains. Record breaking temperatures will continue through the week. This cold air is in place, and it's not budging for the next couple of days. And there's yet another storm system that's gonna follow this. Similar track that what happened earlier this week and over the weekend. If you remember over the weekend, Seattle got a lot of snow. Oregon had ice that dip down into Texas earlier this week and caused the snow and and the ice in Texas. And yet another one developing tonight and into tomorrow. The theme kind of continues just a really harsh winter for folks in the South and especially in Texas. While great conditions in California remains stable. Other states typically rely on each other via energy imports and exports, so saving energy during the evening hours can potentially help free up supply for those in states Experiencing the winter storms. P Genie says it's prepared to meet the current demand for power and callous. So isn't expecting any outages in California. The chemical hiss news in any 3.1
Speaking From the Heart with SLP Lauren Sharpe-Payne
"Lauren. Welcome to the wo- med. Thank you in fact i to be here so for those of you who don't know morin. Sharp pain is a speech pathologist. And i have been dying to get speech. Pathologist on the wool med. So when you tell people what you do what's the first thing that they automatically assume. No people automatically assume i work with kids. I just can't sit kids and teach them how to say either s.'s. Or their ps. And i mean with all this do that but i actually work with adults since i think. The stereotype with speech pathology sitting down playing games working on different sounds But there's so much more to it than that so yeah well. I'll admit one of my good friends is literally dreading the day that her two year olds list goes away. It's really cute though because right now. Her z's literally come from the back of her mouth. Like all the kerr molars and she's just adorable. It's really cute it is. Oh my gosh yeah so you mentioned that you work with adults so did you. Is that kind of where you got started with. Everything or your passion really was but actually started my career working with kids. I worked with kids for about two years. Two and a half years and i liked it initially But i quickly found out. Just it wasn't like farc me like it wasn't my passionate area and so i worked really hard to kind of tradition over to the medical side of each pathology and i started working at outpatient rehab. I was seeing a lot of patients who had had strokes in like traumatic brain injuries and swallowing disorders. And i really found that that was really my passion and that's really what made me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. And so that's what i've been doing. Ever since that point. I love that i feel like i. I mean the only real interactions and stuff that i've had working with with speech was i used to work in the nikko. Nice and so. We'd have speech consoles all the time you know. We had like paralyzed vocal. Cords or you know. Cleft lip or palate premiums just couldn't quite figure out how to suck swallow breathe. Exactly yeah echo cool. Yeah so there's just it just sounds like there's so many different fields within so p. wrote there are there are. Mike said i think most of the time. Most people associate s. l. p. With you know working with kids like in the school. I think the school was really popular. But like you said there's so many different areas you know. We can work in hospital. We can work in nursing homes and you know fools and fire practices. So there's there's really a lot of different options in terms of you know where we can work which is really cool. So what led you into this career like how did you first hear about it and you know get interested in it so it's funny excellent to be a lawyer up until my senior year of high school and i remember i had already declared my major and a second of sociology class in high school and their story about the young girl. Her name was genie. I don't know if you've heard the story. But she was locked away for twelve years that her parents never interacted with hers. Get no human interaction and yeah it was. I saw that and like she had no communication at mike whatsoever and so she worked with the speech therapist and he was able to communicate. It wasn't all verbal. Nonverbal buys using pictures. But i thought that was so neat that there was something out there. You could help people communicate and the rest is history. I just fell in love from that point. that's really beautiful So greenwich some little video. Yeah what's the school pathway lake like do you guys have to clinicals. is it Like a bachelors. Is it a doctoral degree. Now or like how like if you're going to coach someone through eight or tell someone you know what they're in for. Yeah so it's four. Years of undergrad And then you have to go to graduate school so for me. My program was in graduate school. But if you don't have speech as an undergraduate degree typically a two and a half maybe three years for the graduate program and then after that your life and your certify after a nine month period. There's no doctoral degree right now. That recommended or like that's required to be a speech pathologist but you can most certainly get them back degree that not in my pets whatsoever But after getting your master's degree through what all the clinical fellowship here and so that nine months after you graduate where you're essentially practicing. Slc like getting a salary and everything. But you're still technically under supervision and so after that nine months Once you have all of your hours your than a certified speech pathologist so you don't need any supervision or you know no one's giving you feedback just kinda on your own completely after that point. Wow yeah is there different routes that you take if you want to be more on the medical side of things versus you know in schools or or working with pedes a good question so i know in graduate school. We do externships so typically if there are two externships one is medical. One is typically pediatrics. might be in the school. There might be private practice. But i know that's alive. Students really kind of narrow down where they want to be in terms of their career so a lot of students. We'll just try to warm more relationships with people a medical they feel like they wanna pursue medical side or vice versa with school side and then with the clinical fellowship years so that nine month period actor graduation many students will try and get their cf wire the clinical fellowship your and that desired area of speech that way after they're done they can't hopefully get a medical job or a pediatric job. You know what they don't need this revision to

I and understanding how a i can play a better role in the technologies or with the technology whether it's within or atop a different digital ecosystems for clients though. I personally have a lot of fun with that role in general just because it gives me the ability to see how we can create value for users of creative ways with technology is where we might not see very consumer or user friendly and i might add like one of the reason why this is such a differentiation. Headed what you're talking about. Even sent to city in is market. Ni- expedience must. Genie are working together. Cohesively issue the cool part of the conversation that will be having at the at the upcoming event with community and is about building and designing intelligent digital platforms that are built with humans entity the human in the mind and building them to drive adoption so that we can take a lot of these concepts that are explored in a typical machine learning ai. In women in an enterprise and then take them to an enterprise capability and the part of their journey. At least an odd philosophy is that it has to lead with human simplicity. Really great insight. We actually had a podcast not too long ago with chad moro. Who is the cto chief. Data officer at fulton bank and he actually made a great point about the human center city of systems especially of systems that depend on data because he was saying you know at the end of the day the data represents people represents what people are doing it represents their money represents their finances and those finances represent their retirement college savings.

"Hot so gag here. Is that george and dan. I'm married now. But they haven't consummated their relationship and obviously he is desperate to do but she keeps batting off his advances using her position as a movie star as hair. Excuse makeup by day skin cream by night. Now on is played by patricia. Barry and we have seen before in the twilight zone in the episode that chaser and it was a similar kind of wish fulfillment kind of situation but not episode. She'd been given a love potion. That made hair slavishly devoted to the man who had administered it to but in the beginning before the potion was given. She was playing very similar role to this. A woman who men were falling over themselves to be with what she knew how to use that to his best advantage patricia was born patricia. White in iowa in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and it seems that it acting career came about by good old fashioned hard work. She attended college. She got qualifications and then a little bit of good fortune when she won a rita hayworth lookalike contest which got noticed and resulted in a movie contract with warner brothers and in the late forties. She met her husband. Philip barry who was a producer director and she started to use her married name and the two of them worked on several projects together and had a long and successful marriage until he passed away in nineteen ninety eight when we talk about hard. Working actors of the day patricia bari. Definitely ends are title with a hundred and forty five credits to her name. Several of which incorporated multiple episodes of different shows. She started work and she never stopped and one of her notable appearances later on was in twilight zone the movie where she played the mother role in the. It's a good life remake on a screen career literally spanned an incredible sixty eight years ending in twenty fourteen and she passed away at the age of ninety. Three and twenty sixteen. So it's hard to really critique a performance like this when you're not particularly in namur to with the material but i think she does a good job here with what she's been given such as it is and i think it's probably obvious by now that i'm not particularly fond of this episode but what i do get a little bit of a kick out of is how georgia's fantasies are cast with the people. He knows in his life in different roles like his boss or his colleagues and even the man who sold him the lamp in the shop. Make some appearances and even in his fantasy life he struggles to do anything other than picture himself as someone who gets walked all over when he finds an smooching with one of co georgia so downtrodden that he can't even imagine himself having something good in life without losing it. So again that a seats of some interesting stuffy. Because i think a lot of us have that self defeating aspect to our personalities to varying degrees. But it wouldn't be a story about old hollywood with one scene. At least the has an age particularly well when george meets an aspiring actress. Out of hollywood party. That hiding naps them happening down on this level yet. Make you repairs of waste. I has the accidents. It is because you say too much thrown. Would you like your drink now. No no that just to hold. I am under the age under the age to drink. I have this technical problem you see in the years. I am a child. I think i am a tour. Don't you think i am. Yeah i think you mcteer. So i'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole but next up george again goes against what the genie has warned him about. And i kinda liked that aspect to genie was worn against the things that order people do and fall foul of when they actually get their wishes so this time him margins himself as a wealthy businessman nine answer. I see you hear every morning. Don't you miss school. Oh no sir. I wouldn't miss school. I get five from my papers. Then i go to the afternoon session. Ps thirty one incredible..

"Who who expect them who. I'm gonna genie lamp. That's who aladdin magic the whole bit jeannie. Jeannie you look like genie. Wardrobe make retains say you see a couple of thousand years ago. I used to wear those crazy balloon long. Johns with do with the wild turban. But let me tell you something. Jack george jack george as long as you healthy today. We dress like the times except for these velvety mccormack's muck looks if if you are the genie then i must be the master of the lamp. Big deal master of lamp. Alright you got yourself a free wish this to be three wishes There's the rub. There used to be three wishes. But let me tell you something jack george. You don't want to change your name. the scene used to include three wishes but the recipients were abused privileged. So we had to cut down so Give it a little dot. Give me a call doing a favor. Will you sleep on it. So the genie of the lamp is played by jock albertson who we have seen before in the twilight zone in the episode the shelter. So i won't really go into his bio but at this point in the episode about fourteen minutes in. I have to say that the comedy is in quite grab me but then we get to this scene. And i think the interplay between jack albertson and howard morris is pretty good you know. I'm not rolling around on the floor laughing but we have two guys here who obviously no comedy raising up some very questionable material at least a little bit but like i said we're only fourteen minutes in and we have thirty five minutes left to go so if this episode is may daughter of these two actors verbally bouncing off each other. Even if every joke doesn't hit. Then i'm thinking maybe this could turn out to be okay and the seems to be at least an effort to be unique with the whole genie thing instead of getting three wishes that don't rotate out like planned. This time george only gets one wish and has to spend some time deciding what that wish is going to be and the genie even gives him some pointers. On what kinds of wishes don't really turn out so while it's a new kind of take on the whole gene anything. The problem is this now means that the genie isn't gonna stick around jack. Albertson's appearance is really. Just a three minute cameo so. The highlight of the episode for me is now gone and strangely mon- grams junior in unlocking the door to a television classic details a possibility that this scene might be reshot now. This is something that. I've not really come across in the twilight zone before in looking into the kind of behind the scene stoff so please excuse my language when i read this for martin grams. Junior writes a letter to rod sailing from ralph w nelson dated november twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty to verify that they would intentions to reshoot the genie appearance and disappearance sequence in this episode and then he quotes from the letter that the reason is because of the fager like performance of the actor who played genie so i thought about leaving that out put it is what it is so i read it and i thought to myself. Is this misprint. Because martin grams. Junior doesn't really elaborate on the comment or add any fair the commentary on so there's nothing fair than not line itself on that slayer being used now. I know that where it has been used differently. In england for many years in england it was actually a food for many years and then obviously slang wet part of a slang word for the cigarette. I have looked up. The american use of the way to see whether there is some historical kind of evolution of it because sometimes over time where it's become used for different things and they were originally intended so i thought maybe that is the case bought. It seems to me from what i can tell that where has generally in the last hundred years or so has always been used in the unfortunate way that it is now so without any more information it seems that we have to take the comment at face value and it is disappointing that they show that we see is taking such great strides in or the ways certainly wasn't immune to santa amount of prejudice behind the scenes. I guess although. I can't excuse i suppose everything is a janney. Thin is a step you take one step forward the still many steps to go so i guess we have to just file that on the eufor unfortunate move on from it but it seems that when the episode was viewed as a whole there was very little point in spending the extra money to reshoot the scene because this scene was the least of the episodes problems so despite the episode trying to kind of put a different spin on the whole. Genie think what we actually get is probably quite typical of genie stories. But instead of george getting wishes and regretting that he's dunham he imagines what he should wish for and despite the genie warning him not to wish for love the first thing he imagines is the object of his affection from work and being a famous movie star and him being husbands. Make up georgie. You wouldn't want to play my final scene with smeared lipstick which no hike. I guess not final. Same it's been a long grind. They said you could have a couple of weeks off but that was six months ago. We could take our honeymoon now if you want to. That is want to georgie. Makeup all day beauty creams song. They don't pay a movie star to look ugly baby. Don't you think i'm worth waiting for sure puts.

Enby People Don't Owe You Androgyny
"What we're talking about today. Is this idea of and rajini and that Tran or that trans nonbinary folk. But specifically non binary folk half to feel the pressure to conform to androgen e Now we're gonna be talking a little bit about that. But how do we define androgen. I'm sure that we can find it in a dictionary but like what does androgen e what is the definition of androgen e that we can work with that. The audience can sort of understand a little bit easier. I always think of like the the way androgen. He is generally portrayed in media where it's like a. It's generally like i think of you know like bowie or someone like that. That's you know very like and it's usually usually are either an Assigned male person or an aside female person with a smaller chest. It's usually about being very small and kind of like lake Ethereal looking. I guess thing and it's a it's more about like not having any defining gender caracteristics in your appearance than like actually being any any you know. Form of non binary Me like a good example. That i like to Exactly what kind of looting to somebody. Purely neutral in their appearance right. So oftentimes that means that they're lending or attributes of the two sides of the binary. Right so somebody be in a suit wearing make right you know for the rest of piety. That's a combination of two sides of one coin that everybody else kind of sees whereas you know internally especially for folks who are non binary sometimes. It's it's not about the appearance. It's about how you feel or how you act so i know like for me I enjoy wearing a tux in getting dressed up. But i also really enjoy playing on my skintight floral chance or you know or I do do make up every now. And then and sundays depending on how the winds blowing. I really enjoy that or sometimes. I don't care you know so. I think that there needs to be understanding for the audience that what the world thinks is android genie versus what i think nonbinary people think is android need. There's a slight deviation there In that the we don't have to work so hard to show the world androgynous in the way that you expected right like i said i don't know if that helps the audience understand. What makes it even more vague. But i think that's kind of yeah. It's that like that like It expects you have aspects of both ends of the gender spectrum as opposed to like it they want you to be like right in the middle of it as opposed to like like ashley was saying. It's a whole a whole bag. And i think that was for me. roadblock came to was that i am very comfortable being sam presenting like You know i. I like where closed from the men's section occasionally and just kind of grungy but like overall i'm presenting which really was Like even even in the queer community. I felt like i. You know i like appeared as a woman and i wasn't sure how to make that distinction and that was it ended up being. I just talk about and say it all the time which works. But yeah i felt like because i wasn't interested in appearing like a man and especially because i i wasn't you know necessarily thinking about any actual medical transitioning that i was excluded from that world The as i was like well. If i'm comfortable appearing like this then. I can't actually mean it. I was gonna offer one other examples. So i mean some of the examples. We've talked about about what the world sees androgen. He said like bowie stuff of that. Where it's like taking a little bit from both sides Another really good example. I mean If anybody's watched the show sheron a huge fan of sheron. I think the queer community inherently lows. She raw for reasons. Hail yeah Double trouble in a perfectly neutral character and it was it wasn't even it wasn't ever questioned or considered you know what side right of the historical binary that you know that person would all on and the characters only ever used day to address double trouble so you know dole troubles like a perfect example of somebody. That's perfectly on that neutral line that doesn't waiver to either side. And even that's a form of androgen that i think is a high expectation but it's another good example of just perfectly right there in the middle and so i figured i'd offer that or that helps the audience
Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny dupes spy into revealing how he was poisoned - CNN
"Russian spy unwittingly revealed how Russian agents nearly killed opposition leader Alexei Navalny back in August when they placed the lethal nerve agent Nova shock inside Navalny's underpants. Even stranger. The spy disclosed that detail to navalny himself who was Impersonating a high ranking Russian official on the phone. CNN's Cloris Award broke this story in collaboration with the investigative outlet Belling Cat and Dirt Spiegel, and she joins us via Skype. Claressa welcome. Thank you so much for having me on Peter, and let's start with a little more context. Here. Back in August, Navalny was flying to Moscow from the city of Tomsk when he became very ill on the airplane, And here he is recounting that moment. To you. Let's listen. I get out of this bus room tone over to the flight attendant and said him I was poisoned. I'm gonna dive and then then I lay down under his feet in tow to die. So the pilot then diverted the plane to the Russian city of Omsk Navalny survived. He's now in Germany. But tell us what you learned about the days and hours leading up to that moment on the airplane. I mean, you know, it's just been extraordinary to get this kind of insight into how an elite team of FSB Russian State Security service operatives With a specialty in chemical weapons, many of them doctors, scientists operating out of the UN remarkable Moscow suburb were able to essentially trail Navalny's every move for more than three years. Then, as you said in August, Navalny became very sick on the way back from Tomsk on this flight, and the Germans once he was able to be transported to Germany confirmed that he had been poisoned with not be chock. We now know that that Na'vi chalk was planted. In Navalny's underpants If you can believe that, Wow, What is that? Details say to you. So we spoke to a lot of experts about this to try toe understand it better both from the point of view of understanding whether the intention was to kill or possibly just incapacitate. And by the way, all of them agree. You can only really be looking to kill when you're using Na'vi chalk outside of a laboratory. But also to get a better sense of why would they put Nova Chuck in the underpants? And particularly this one operative describes in this now famous phone call to Alexei Navalny were Navalny was posing as a senior national security aide conducting an investigation into the operation. He tells him. Listen, we put it on the underwear on the inside seems of the crotch area and experts Have told us that the groin area is particularly porous, particularly susceptible. This kind of poisoning, So they certainly knew what they were doing it as you say It was navalny himself, who was able to coax these details out of this agent who was a part of this toxins team. Why didn't have only do that? How did Navalny do that? So when I was in Moscow last week with my team, we all set about trying to confront some of the people that through this investigation with Belling cat we have been able to identify as part of this FSB toxins team. Then they landed on this idea of pretending to be someone high up within the Russian hierarchy, and they were able to disguise Phone number they were using to make it look like they were calling from an FSB landline. And if you listen to the conversation, it's it's something like 45 minutes long. It does take a while to persuade this operative his name is constant included. It's if he graduated from the Russian Academy of Chemical Defense. It does take him a while to be persuaded that it's OK for him to have this conversation on an open line. With navalny, But once he starts talking boy, does he start talking? Well. Vladimir Putin himself has said that if his agents wanted to kill navalny, they would have done it. So what do you make of that reaction in Russia? About how high up this operation went in the government? Well, I mean, this puts the Kremlin in an extraordinarily embarrassing and uncomfortable position because just last week, President Putin, responding to our reporting, said, What's the big deal? So what the FSB were following Navalny? That's normal because he works with us intelligence services. That doesn't mean they poisoned him. Well, fast forward just a few days, And here we are with concrete evidence that in fact, that team of operatives who were following him did poison him. And so how on earth does the Kremlin go about wriggling out of this one, Essentially I will say that unlike last week where it was much more silent, and the Russian media and people weren't really talking about it, perhaps because they were fearful this time, people are starting to talk about it. We've already seen Russian journalist trying to go to the address off. This could threats at this operative who unwittingly confessed to Alexei Navalny. And I think it's going to be very difficult for the Russian government to put this genie back in the bottle. Just briefly, Claressa. It is amazing to see you sitting there in front of Alexei Navalny, who had gone through such a tremendously traumatic ordeal on this airplane getting poison. He's been a thorn in the side of Vladimir Putin for many years. It's amazing that he's still alive. How is his health? How's he doing? He has made nothing short of a miraculous recovery, and all of his doctors say the same thing. What is even more extraordinary is that Alexei Navalny is still planning to go back to Russia. He says. He's a Russian politician. He belongs in Russia, and he would never give Putin such a gift, he

"genie" Discussed on Slate Money
"That is the number of states that legalized recreational marijuana on tuesday. I new jersey. New jersey south dakota montana in arizona and then mississippi legalized medical marijuana. There was a clear winner on tuesday. Despite what you may think and that winner was drugs the really hilarious thing about that clear winner being drugs. I am very proud of us. Not talking about the market reaction to the presidential election and everyone give yourself a pat on the back for that. The tld stunks went up for reasons to re matter. The interesting part of that while the whole stock market had really quite impressive. Rally this week. The one segment of the stock market plunged was the big marijuana companies. They went down by. Who knows i have no idea it. I think it's been able. I think they initially went well. There are a number of reasons. A lot of stuff is already priced them. I mean i think if biden wants to come in and do something popular right away. I really don't think he can go wrong with maybe legalizing marijuana because it just seems like these bills. I mean it's thirty five states now that have some kind of legal marijuana there are state and local budget shortfalls. I mean it just seems like a very popular idea. I tweeted some survey numbers. But i don't have in front of me right now. But it's basically like at the beginning of the drug war. Ninety percent of americans opposed drugs racket. Now about ninety percent of americans favor legalizing marijuana is just like a total flip. And it's pretty interesting. Do agree with you on this one. This a huge problem in trying to build up any kind of marijuana industry or any kind of guard rails so long as it's illegal under federal law you can't even be banked if you're running a marijuana dispensary and you're trying to get a bank account that's virtually impossible right now because of federal law and so given how many states have legalized it. I think you're right that the federal government can should just say look. Reality has changed. We need to change the law. My number is actually. I want to change my mind though. It's going to do Effort number. But i'm not. I i want to stick on this idea of like prices moving in the wrong direction. My number is seventy thousand. Which is the number of bitcoin. That was sitting in a wallet for the past few years. Just not moving. And that's a large number of bitcoin to sit in a wallet. It's about a billion dollars worth and then suddenly lost week. They will move to a different bullet and everyone's like ooh that's interesting. What happened that. It turns out that that was a seizure by the united states. Government of a bunch of bitcoin was connected to silkroad the like underground marketplace and the government has now taken. These billion dollars worth of bitcoin from a person who remains unknown may or may not be rough. Who who's in jail and will end up selling those bitcoin so basically what we're seeing is a bunch of bitcoin that were just sitting there. Basically off the market have now been seized by the government and Presumptively about to get sold into the market for roughly a billion dollars. The reaction of the bitcoin market to this was absolutely fascinating. The price of bitcoin went up a lot to like fifteen thousand dollars. And you're like what the hell like when you see a massive position of bitcoin which you know is about to get dumped onto the market. Wouldn't the price of bitcoin go down rather than not like. This is another one of those things where you just look at it and you go. This makes no sense. Is it because the us government was basically legitimizing. Bitcoin by saying it was gonna sell some. I don't think there's much reason here or it's just like because lots of other things going up and it's correlated with everything else you know. I think trying to find a reason behind. Bitcoin is a fool's errand never tried to make sense of news in the bitcoin market. Because it just never makes sense. And what's your number number is sixty percent so another big winner on the night was public transportation so in austin texas around sixty percent of voters approved a ballot for a pretty ambitious public transportation plan. And if you look around the country there were tons of public transportation measures and like everything past people voted to increase their taxes to pay for better public transportation. So i thought that that was a nice thing that came out of the election. We are we finally going to get that rail link between dallas and houston. We shall see. Yeah i'm not holding my breath for that one okay. I'm really looking forward to the slate plus segment on did twitter. Actually do its job in this election. Not mentioned facebook. That's coming up plus member otherwise. Thank you to jesmyn molly for producing from undisclosed location in upstate. New york thank you for him on slate money at slate dot com. And we will talk to you next week on slate money..
"genie" Discussed on Slate Money
"Stop dealing with and to not by the loans the end his originating and really like cracking down on that in a very aggressive way in a way that is not constructive and not helpful and i totally agree the in that sense. What you're seeing is a very almost childish reaction to the speech which we all have to also agree was incredibly. Ill advised in what the hell was giving that speech right. But i also just like just to be clear. The regulations the chinese government is putting forward would dramatically reduce the revenue. That aunt can make. I mean this potentially cut its evaluation. Have this ugly signed for private companies in china. No i think. That's i think what we what we are seeing right. Here is the fact that the and was making an insane amount of money by dentists monopoly position in loan origination and payments and it's never healthy in any capitalist country for a private sector monopolist to to be able to just judge norman billions and billions of dollars in rents to keep the financial sector going. That just isn't healthy tool. So if the chinese government wants to crack down on that and if that then intern reduces evaluation event. I'm really fine with that. But they obviously there's a bunch of personal political stuff going on behind the scenes here but yeah if group's market capitalization reduced from three hundred billion to something slightly more normal. I think that's probably good for the chinese financial system can. Can i ask you some questions about aunt. Cleese do okay. So my first question is it was either reuters or bloomberg said that in china peer to peer lending was really popular and there were five thousand peer to peer lenders in the past few years. And now that's narrow down to just three. And i was like wow first and second. Do we have anything comparable in the united states to a product like aunt. And what would it be. And is it regulated. Who do very good questions. So the first census basically no. There's nothing in the united states close to the walk. Used to exist in china and really doesn't exist in china anymore. In terms of peer to peer lending couple of companies like prefer lending club tried it and they realized very quickly that it just didn't work. The cost of funds was too high. And that's what happened in a little bit. What happened in china is the individuals in china. Found it very hard to get loans. And so they wound up having to wind up effectively barring money from other individuals in china who were looking to invest and get interest rate in return on money. And what we have seen actually with the rise of anti group is the now it is much easier for individuals to get loans will they need to do is go along to aunt an aunt will originate alone for them and those loans that they can get from and a much more attractive than the loans that they used to be able to. They used to have to get from individuals until they were going to aunt instead. So that's that's a good development that's a positive development and then the other question what is the equivalent of and in the united states. I think we can actually start touching on that in the next segment when we talk about visa because that is actually the closest company to and i can think of. Oh and why hasn't an aunt like product taken off in the us because of of the regulatory environment the a very balkanized regulatory environment for finance in the united states. It is very very complicated for a small company to gain a foothold. Because you're dealing with all of these different agencies you're dealing regulations at multiple different levels. It's it's very different than even if you compare it to. A country like singapore even the uk in terms of how they handle financial regulation. The united states makes it very hard for fintech companies but also. Let's just be clear about this. The reason why and had to feel to itself was because chinese banks with just not issuing loans to chinese individuals right and and was like great. We'll do that. And in the united states american banks are issuing loans to americans and so. There's no need for an end to step in and say you can get a loan now because we've always been able to get loans. That's not you know that. That is definitely true. And i do also thinking of just like the kind of payments system in general. If you're comparing to what we see in china and generally been outside of amp but just like obviously the digital. No one is. No one in the united states is is paying with. Qr codes where. There's no other way of paying for anything in china so it's a very different system.
Hope Springs - Growing Flowers From Seed, Clare Foster
"Welcome back to our conversation with clear Foster Gardiner writer editor sharing with us about her garden life journey especially, as it relates to growing flowers from seed were back to hear more about the different kinds of flowers to grow from seed including annuals by annuals, grasses, herbs, perennials, and more. When I look at the. The table of contents and see. How that flows? What criteria did you to set for your contents and the flowers you would include which aren't always traditional flowers. They are also flowering herbs, flowering grasses, It's a, it's a lovely wide range. Will thank you. Yeah. It's it wasn't encyclopedic in any way we didn't want it to be really we we wanted to include the plants and the flowers that we will really growing and that we knew worked really for people. So, cutting flowers and as well as herbs and the the more the edible side of things Yeah. So we really focused on on the plants that the that we were we were growing and that we could recommend first hand. and and I think again because Sabina was working for children seeds and had access to different varieties we were quite Specific in varieties that we were recommending even though those change all the time I mean this quite a few. Varieties now of a certain flowers that we would have put in and they've the because they they just changed the the whole time and find new things. New Exciting colors. So yes. So just just the the the plants, the that we recommend ourselves I think was the the main criteria. And the publishers wanted us to do the be friendly section which I think was a very good idea actually because I think there's a loss of interest in. Oversee ecology and biodiversity biodiversity at the moment and insects in particular. Yeah and I I. Really. This is one of the things that resonated with me about the book when it first came across my desk was the way it is you know it's a pretty straightforward book. It's about growing flowering plants from seed to fill out your your garden over the course of the season. on one level, and then when as I was reading, I kept sort of making little ticks along the margins or underlining because he does get to a lot of universal cultural conversations. The gardening world is having is grappling with right now that I think are all important and you know among those would be Ecological and Seed bio-diversity. So you know just the fact that of trying to grow from seed opens up for almost any Gardner a whole range of plants you would never find at the local garden center and it also then as you are seeing, as C. J. changes changes with the trends if you are growing from seed in that seat is able to come true from seed that you know it reproduces for itself. You are also protecting the biodiversity in A. City of seed so it gets to cede sovereignty and. And I think that is a I'm not sure what it's like in the UK. But that is a very big topic of conversation here for heritage varieties for culturally significant varieties among different groups of people. The indigenous seed keepers network comes to mind immediately the seeds of the African diaspora here in the US is it's a big part of that garden communities, conversation and then you know you, you mentioned the fact and it's clear if you ever grow from seed, it's much more. Economical you spend a lot less money. You create a lot less plastic waste in the world because you don't come home with your you know ten I'm not sure what the equivalent would be in the UK. But you're fourteen dollar one gallon pots using a lot of soil that comes from somewhere and water and and whatever chemicals might have been put on it at the nursery you bypass all of that which I think is an important thing to point out and Made me laugh when I saw comment on one of your instagram posts claire from Genie Blom who said you know annuals are going to save the world and Which is, which is true. But you you never you never preach these things in the book they come up as a result of what you're what you're. Educating people about and sharing with people because you never get far from the fun and the color and the joy. So. As you were working on the book with Sabina were some of these bigger cultural conversations sort of. At the forefront for you. Yes. Yeah I think so. the trouble is with with the book of of of this sort of this size. Is. You're limited with your word count. Quite the lot of text was cut, which is, which is a bit of a shame in a way but but yes, absolutely, I mean these things it is the subtext for the for the whole book. Ready. But more than anything I think an keeping that content that the simplicity simplicity of the framework. Was Key because I just want to encourage people to try to try doing it. And and Yes for the fun of it and the Colorado Avalanche in the garden. And and and. For The expense lack of expense that you can create your own garden so cheaply and so quickly I mean I've just you know I haven't had to ask by any annuals for my pots this year I've grown from seed and and And it so satisfying I, mean just just the whole process of it I I didn't think I can kind of do without it now it's something that.

"The utility PG and E shut down parts of its system to prevent its own power lines from sparking fires during strong winds and dry weather that has left hundreds of thousands of people there waiting for the lights to come back on after two days in the dark. These sorts of widespread power shut offs have become a way of life for many Californians and ask Beedies Lily Jamali reports. Residents aren't happy in the tiny community of Concow, about three hours north east of San Francisco. Jesse Olson and her family have lived through PG and E power shut offs. Not once but twice in the last week. It's not easy. It's like they're adjusted recovering from one power outage, and then you're preparing for the next one. A portable generator has helped them stay warm. Keep phone's charged and for the kids at least try to do school online. We also have. We also have a farm with livestock, So we have to keep the antibiotics refrigerated. The Olsens survived California's deadliest and most destructive fire 2018 campfire. It burned down their home. It was sparked by old poorly maintained equipment belonging to Pee Jeannie Online's that stayed active during peak fire conditions. And now we're all living in an RV. Olson adopted her boys out of foster care. They'd been homeless before that. I never wanted them to have tto deal with homelessness ever again. Ah, they they were supposed to have a forever home some place where they felt safe for the rest of their lives. And now that's gone. Olson calls P Genie's power shut offs and necessary evil. 200 Miles southeast, Terry McBride has also suffered the consequences of fire and power shut offs. Her home in the community of Mountain Ranch was hit by a PG Any cost fire five years ago, 2400 Square foot house to a 250 scores for camping trailer. If you didn't laugh, we'd cry. She's surviving P Genie's power shut offs in her trailer. It's like line camping. You know, my mom's got electricity and Senate dress I was able to put My frozen stuff in her freezer so they don't go bad. It's been tough. And while some p Jeannie Fire survivors feel relief that the company is proactively cutting power, McBride is frustrated at the utility for neglecting its lines for years. My feeling is why didn't you do your job in the first place? Why are we having to go through this? Now? P. Jeannie has promised to make long term fixes to its lines. So power outages like these aren't a permanent way of life for NPR news. I'm Lily Jamali in San Francisco.

How To Achieve Excellence Through Exercise
"Through exercise. To be stoic with a capital S. We need to do more than just read think and talk about it. We must have a stoic practice. The practice allows us to put the principles skills and systems of stoic thought into action. The practice allows us to measure our progress to get better on purpose and progress is important the word Prokop done means with someone making progress in their study and practice of stoicism and I suggest that one of the best ways to start making progress as a stoic month and I say, On that path to being a more excellent human being it's with daily exercise and physical conditioning. The goal of stoicism is generally understood to be live in a chord with nature. This includes one's individual nature and that of the world. By living in a chord with nature will experience eudaimonia a smoothly flowing life or happiness. David suddenly have Rutledge Encyclopedia of philosophy said what matters is not necessarily achieving natural advantages like Health which cannot be guaranteed an awful circumstances and which in any case do not bring happiness. What matters is making the right rational choices doing everything that lies in your power toward achieving what nature recommends it is the consistency of those efforts not of their results that may ultimately become perfect agreement with nature that is happiness and the quote. To help us in our practice. We are given some direction. For example, we have the four virtues of stoicism. We have wisdom Justice courage and the one that I focus on self-control, then we have the three disciplines which Epictetus introduced we have the discipline of Desire the discipline of action off the discipline of assent. Now the storks also suggest that virtue or Excellence of character alone is sufficient for happiness. So which of the four virtues should we practice all of them all at once or in succession? Can we be just but uncivilized is that virtuous? Maybe we are a courageous but lack self-control that show progress Socrates had a thesis called the unity of Virtues off some early stoics adopted this as well. They are Genies. Alicia's said they hold that the virtues involved one another and that the possessor of one is the possessor of all in as much as they have common principles end quote. So this simplifies the matter by focusing our efforts on only one of the four canonical virtues will make progress in all of them of the three disciplines. Appetitos teachers the one to start with and the most important to get a handle on first is the discipline of Desire with its clarifying dicot out of control. The dichotomy of control is such an important lesson that Aryan Epictetus is pupil responsible for capturing the lectures for posterity put it first in the enchiridion the very first line some things are within our power While others are not reading further in the in Caribbean Dead learn. What's in our power in short. The only thing in our power is how we choose to think. As we keep reading we learn what's beyond our power. Bottom line everything else. Our body property reputation is very direct simple. Maybe a hard pill to swallow. Yeah, there it is. So we've got our goal live in accord with nature by being the most virtuous person. We can be off to go ahead to focus on one of the four virtues in our case. It's self control due to its relationship to the next aspect which is the discipline of desire which brings

The Parents Are Not Alright
"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

It had become famous. Richard speaking from the next week is Alaska's legislature. We'll begin putting together a plan to rebuild the state. The speaker of the House called the session to order by recognizing she got a standing ovation. The following years anchorages neighborhoods and businesses came back to life McCall's magazine as you probably know presents. Golden Mike. Awards routes and Genie won a National Award for Women Broadcast Young Lady. Who received the gold of micro board as Mrs Jeannie chance honoring our coverage of the Earth of asked me I'll do. I'm sure that any woman could do the same thing. It just so happened that it was my fame. As the story of the disaster started to be written. Genie became one of its recurring characters. The media called her the Voice of Alaska the stand in for the resourcefulness composure. Of An entire state the quake had temporarily unravelled the fabric of society and found the space to slip through. But then that fabric stitched together again and Jeannie didn't fit. She asked for a raise was told that she was already making the highest salary for a woman. She quit the same day at home. Winston felt increasingly overshadowed by her. It TURNS OUT. He'd been physically abusing genie for years. And now it got worse. Eventually she was through with it. She filed for divorce. Soon people around Anchorage were asking her if she'd ever thought about running for office and she'd spend the better part of the seventies and the Alaska state legislature ramming as much progressive legislation as. She could often while wearing a frosted blond wig short skirt and White. Go go boots on. The chamber floor is one or genius young aides to me. She was making up for lost.

"But genie's mind had already turned to reporting the news. As soon as it stopped I looked up and I could say that Television Tower was still standing. She assumed her station would have power back on soon and that the six o'clock news broadcast would go on as usual. Deadman should less than twenty minutes to put together a story. I knew we had no power by the fact that traffic lights went out. But I knew that are very ingenious. Engineer has on the air very shortly and genius sped to the public safety buildings. The police and fire departments were headquartered around up some details for quick report as I dashed in. I saw that all of their huge heavy filing cabinets and desks were thrown face down on the floor and My son went came running in the door and he yelled come. Quick Pennies is falling standing in the doorway of the public safety building. They could see the brand new. Jc Penney Department Store building was a point of pride in Anchorage. Pennies was one of the first major chain retailers to believe in Alaska enough to build the state but as I stood there and watched but now is and wins watched through the flurry snow slabs of concrete wall silently break loose and start toward the crown tremendous. Concrete panel from the exterior started to swing away from the building is though on a hinge and it felt at this trait with a roar deafening roar with the facade peeled off. Parts of the store were now open to the cold. They're exposed like the rooms of dollhouse and went looked at me and higher. I need is all at once. She registered the extent of the wreckage around air. A voice said something about people buried in the rubble. A group of men came running down the street. Yelling Fourth Avenue is gone and behind them. Genie could see the roof of familiar building resting on. The street jabbed into the pavement incomprehensible angle. Then was the first time that I thought the first thing I do before I go any further. If get my family together and make sure everything is all right. I wheeled out of there and headed home. Oh before we got home I could see the house was still standing and I remember briefing out loud. Thank God and she pulled up. Jen and Albert shod out of the neighbor's house across the street winds left out of the car and ran to his sister and brother said Penny has fallen down. And there's more damage downtown and out then pulled off from me. And he looked at me. Very so reliant. He said I'm all right. Don't worry about me. Go On and do your job all three chance. Children began to understand without being told that their mother would be leaving again. Genus proud of how self sufficient or kids have become whatever pride she felt was undercut by guilt. She knew her family was growing independent over at sesame because she wasn't around as much as other mothers and wives were found in the lower forty eight. The women's movement was underway. But Anchorage was fifteen hundred miles away from the rest of America. Feminism wasn't a word. Genie used her struggle to balance. Work and family felt like problem. Unique to her. An isolated moments could trigger self-doubt at breakfast one morning a few weeks earlier. The family was watching through the kitchen window as their neighbors scrape the ice off her husband's Cadillac before he left for work. This was the custom among many anchorage wives. But in the chance the roles were reversed. Winston warmed up the car for Jean. Now Winston Astor honey if I get you a cadillac like that. Would you scrape the ice off and warm it up yourself? There must have been a tinge of disgruntlement in his voice because before genie could answer eight-year-old Jan interrupted to remind her father. He was actually very lucky. It's not everyone gets to warm up the car for Genie. Chance was funny but uncomfortable and in hindsight it might feel ominous to since after the earthquake. The more successful genie became more Winston seethed..

"But Alaska didn't solve winstons troubles with money and before long. The chance family was unable to pay the rent. Winston said not to worry he'd sell some cars soon. Genie worried and this is what a good wife is supposed to do. She wrote just wait at home for her man to bring money into pay the bills and feed the family if other wives do it all the time. Why can't I learn to relax and let it happen? She went to Winston Weeping. One day she said and he told her all. If you're so worried about paying the rent why are you sitting on your fat fanny? Get out there and get a job. Genie was speechless two weeks later. She got herself hired at Katie. And I got all the hills Jan. I Cornell here you're looking at the time women. Broadcasters typically covered fashion and homemaking or hosted on air recipe swaps but in her year and a half at the station. Gene forged a role for herself as an industrious roving reporter. She covered crime in the courts in City Hall. She reported from crab boats and missile sites burning buildings in villages and sled dog races Gary back during the final stretch of the race. Genie lost herself in the excitement. A little and just started shouting. Oh yes into a microphone as the mushers past broadcaster appeared to make a sly off-colored crack about her breathlessness on the air. Here Bill Robert. Genie tried to be gracious and STOIC. Do what was expected of her without complaint. She figured this was the only way to defuse the discomfort of the men around at the end of the sled dog races that afternoon. She'd sign off by thinking not only all the listeners and spectators but her male co-workers to act act every she was also sure to thank her.

"Are you familiar with these diaper genies? I don't know. Yeah. They didn't have genie's back then. But essentially, it's a trash can that sort of locks in the smell of the waste that way. Your home doesn't smell like it. But there seemed to be very clear instructions that you shouldn't wait more than two days to to throw the waste out upset Chris Cody waits a week and a half. Oh. League. Chris come on the whole point of the diaper genie is to wait you fill it up. And then when it's filled empty it. I'm not saying it's gotta be filled up in less than a week. Right. That's what I mean. I don't know where Mike just said a week and a half. I don't know where he got this two day rule. The rule is when it's filled Yelm, it the whole the whole reason it was invented is. Because it keeps the smell right wrapped. But you can feel free to eat at anytime. You don't have to wait till you empty your trash Wentz half-full. No, not wasting. I do that smell. If there's human feces in. Original guy. I I think everyone's tonal change a little bit. Once they have to actually, you know, ROY has a kid. Oh, I haven't been throwing Chris. Typer Jeanie Jeanie four people telling you that your approach is Ross. My take was poop is too heavy. That's what I said. Because when I empty out this thing it's way to have. That's your fault. It's not the poop. It's a week and a half two weeks of Kalisz. It's got I look, I'm not a diaper genie guy. I think that came after my parenting, but. Man. It does seem like a week and a half would be a little long. It's less than a week. It's when it fills up. Okay. You shouldn't wait all the way. Especially if some of the poop at the bottom of the of the wastebasket is, you know, several days old cau- hoops too heavy. It's the same in Gundy Thursday, and it's a perfect day for STAN to join Dan today because Dan is glowing day. It is a big day for an assault on shame at tourism. I we know what's going to happen today. And he's got his brother in arms. Same in gun gonna you guys are going to go to town on the NC double A Zion. Williamson shouldn't play another second for Duke basketball. Is that the take that we're going to hear today? You know, what I mean that's been Scottie Pippen's take for for a long time. He was the first one I heard come out with that. Listen, I understand the cinnamon I do in from a from a purely business standpoint. I would understand it. If if Zion Williamson shut it down. I just personally hope we don't get to that point in college sports. I mean people say, well, why should he play about because you like basketball and you want to compete? I mean, does there need to be another reason to that? But I understand the other side of it. And I certainly wouldn't be one criticizing Zion Williamson if he decided to sit out I don't think he will. And I hope he doesn't stand. That's interesting because to me Zion has a winning. Lottery ticket and if you actually had that but couldn't cash it until June. I think you do everything you could to protect that lottery ticket. Right. So I I don't know. I'm wondering because I think coach K should tell him Zay on your days, Duke or done. All right. You got bigger things on the horizon. What would you do as a coach you would want him to selfishly play? Right. Absolutely. Right. And that's why look one of the things that. I've always thought is coaches should never be part of those medical decisions. I don't I don't care what level and I never was part of them. This is certainly gotta be zions choice whenever they decide the severity of the injury. And like I said, I would not be critical of him. If he decided to sit out I would understand it. I just hope it doesn't come to that. I mean, you know, I it's look it's part of the problem with the system they should be able to go right from high school and play. But then are we going to get to the point in high school while I'm the number one guy in my class?.
