Max Pearson presents a selection of this week's Witness History stories. In 1999, Aibo: the world's first robot dog, hit the shops in Japan and sold out in just 20 minutes. We hear from Toshitada Doi who spent six years on the project when he worked at Sony. Plus we hear from Dr Ella Haig about the development of artificial intelligence. Japanese software developer Shigetaka Kurita created the first emoji in 1999. Valerie Hunter Gordon, from England, invented disposable nappies in 1947 after the birth of her third child. We hear from Valerie's son, Nigel Hunter Gordon. Hungarian journalist László Bíró was sick of smudging the ink from his fountain pen and so he invented the ballpoint pen in 1938. Finally, a Hungarian architect Ernő Rubik invented what's known as the Rubik's Cube.

God gives more than we could ask... but He also asks more than we can give. We're finding some principles of heavenly economics in the familiar story of the Feeding of the Five-Thousand - also known as The Lunch that Changed the World. In the Kingdom, large needs can be filled from a small supply, if we add faith and obedience. That all sounds very nice as a generality. But how could we apply it to a specific church, and to individuals and families?

The Disciples were discombobulated. Jesus had told the Twelve to do something they couldn't do. And He seemed to know they couldn't do it. But He still wanted them to do it. Then He told them how. We're looking at "The Feeding of the Five-Thousand." We can learn quite a few things from how this event unfolded - including some lessons about the character of God, and the nature of faith.

An obscure funk band founded by a group of Minneapolis teenagers in the early 1970s caused Minnesota's music scene to catch lightning in a bottle not once, but twice. Minnesota has served as home base for two globally recognized music powerhouses — Prince and his Paisley Park sound and the Flyte Tyme Studios' groove of Jimmy “Jam” Harris and Terry Lewis.The band Flyte Tyme was established in 1972. A pre-fame Prince was merely a player in it. The band's name was based on the song “Flight Time” by jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. Flyte Tyme had a rotating cast for nearly a decade with acclaimed local artists who would go on to work as longtime collaborators and, at times, rivals.That list included the likes of Jellybean Johnson, Cynthia Johnson and Alexander O'Neal who rotated in and out as members. But, the keyboardist and bassist, a young Harris and Lewis, respectively, remained constant. By the time 1980 rolled around, the band was done and Prince had assumed the mantle of king of the local music scene.“The Time” is a truncated version of “Flyte Tyme” and featured Harris and Lewis on keyboards and bass, respectively, and Morris Day on vocals.“Prince once said that the only band he ever feared was The Time,” said Christopher Fuller, co-founder of the Los Angeles-based Black Music Project, a group of artists and academics who promote the history of Black music as the story of America. “And, he was referring to The Time of Morris Day and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and he kind of saw them as a threat. I think that's part of the reason they got fired.”Sources dispute whether it was Prince or Day who fired them, but Harris and Lewis were fired from the band because they were in Atlanta producing music for another act and missed a flight time.The pair could have licked their wounds, founded a middling funk band and carried on. But, they decided to create a music studio in south Minneapolis and later in Edina with their earnings. Make great music and keep it coming Gary Hines spent 10 years as a staff producer for Flyte Tyme and topped the charts with his Flyte Tyme-produced group, “Sounds of Blackness.”When Hines first entered the nondescript building at 4330 Nicollet Avenue on Minneapolis' southside, he knew Harris and Lewis had created something special. “Walking in the door and it was like, ‘Oh, my God!',” he said. “Seeing their Grammys and the photos of artists they had worked with and the range of those artists, you know, Michael, Janet, Lionel Richie … and the groups, New Edition.”To Hines, it was like he was handed the keys to the kingdom.Hines was one of about 10 staff producers, including local artists Jellybean Johnson, Stokely Williams and Jeff Taylor who comprised Flyte Tyme's front line. Their mission was simple: make great music and keep it coming. “The producers would basically live at Flyte Tyme — 12 to 14 hours or more, pretty much daily,” said Hines. “It was part of the joy and the intensity. There was a sign at the entryway that read, ‘The only thing that smokes in this building is the music!'”One of the producers' duties was to screen incoming submissions, which came in the mail, through couriers or were handed directly to the producers. There were demos from unknowns and from celebrities like Dolly Parton. Every staff producer screened hundreds of CDs and cassettes each week. “Jam and Lewis were looking for at least a song a week from us,” Hines said. “It might be two weeks and sometimes it might be a couple in a week.”Besides screening demos for the next hit song, the producers were also writing, often for bands they fronted, Stokely Williams, for example, was lead singer for Mint Condition. The band recorded their hit “Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” at Flyte Tyme's Edina studio in 1991. In 1992 the song peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 3 on Billboard's Hot R&B chart.Producers would also assist other projects in the pipeline. Whether it was through singing or playing, everyone was expected to contribute. “You were writing constantly, improving and honing your craft, obviously for their perusal, review and approval,” he said. “They were like ‘Don't not write. Write a bad song, but keep writing. Hone your craft.'”In its heyday, Flyte Tyme churned out 100 Billboard Top 10 songs; 16 Number One Hot 100 hits and 26 R&B Number One hits. That includes Janet Jackson's multi-platinum hit record “Control” which dropped in 1986.The process clearly worked. Imagine 1960s Detroit had spawned a trio of Berry Gordys, who then went on to create two Motowns. That was the late century Twin Cities music scene.But, Christopher Fuller says the Motown comparison is not as accurate as another.“Jimmy and Terry I think one would say they're closer to the Philly International [production studio] of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff because basically those two were the Philly Sound. And, like Jimmy and Terry, they were songwriters, too. Not just producers,” he said.Fuller adds that unlike legendary Beatles producer George Martin, Jam and Lewis wrote or co-wrote many of the songs for the artists they worked with.Music created at Flyte Tyme reached audiences around the world.Hines remembers the chills he got touring with Sounds of Blackness when he first heard overseas audiences singing along to lyrics borne in Flyte Tyme studios.“Many of whom were not English speaking, but they knew every lyric, not only the choruses, but the verses in the bridge … and were singing them in perfect English!”Since Prince's passing and Flyte Tyme's move away from the Twin Cities, the founders of The Minneapolis Sound may have fallen quiet, but Fuller says their legacy is still with us in the new acts and their songs.“We're still seeing their effect today. The most popular music right now, globally, is K-Pop [Korean Pop Music],” Fuller said. “But, you know what K-Pop is? It's reconstituted Black music – especially 90s R&B, which along with Teddy Riley and New Jack Swing was Flyte Tyme. Jimmy and Terry. Just about all of modern pop music owes a huge debt to them.”
The tomato gets no respect. Never has. Stored in the dustbin of history for centuries, accused of being vile and poisonous, appropriated as wartime propaganda, subjected to being picked hard-green and gassed, even used as a projectile, the poor tomato is the Rodney Dangerfield of foods. Yet, the tomato is the most popular vegetable in America (and, in fact, the world). It holds a place in America's soul like no other vegetable and few other foods. Each summer, tomato festivals crop up across the country; John Denver had a hit single titled “Homegrown Tomatoes;” and the Heinz tomato ketchup bottle, instantly recognizable, is in the Smithsonian. Author William Alexander is on a mission to get tomatoes the respect they deserve. Supported by meticulous research but told in a lively, accessible voice, Ten Tomatoes that Changed the World will seamlessly weave travel, history, humor, and a little adventure (and misadventure) to follow the tomato's trail through history. A fascinating story complete with heroes, con artists, conquistadors, and no surprise, the Mafia, this book is a mouth-watering, informative, and entertaining guide to the good that has captured our hearts for generations. William Alexander is a New York Times bestselling author and the writer of three critically-acclaimed books, including The $64 Tomato: How One Man Nearly Lost His Sanity, Spent a Fortune, and Endured an Existential Crisis in the Quest for the Perfect Garden. He's been featured on NPR's Morning Edition and Weekend Edition and has written for the New York Times, the LA Times, Saveur, and others.

Did you know that there are over 31,000 verses in the entire Bible? Many of them point to Jesus and our need for Him.For this weekend, we will be focusing on John 1:1-18. For it is in these 18 verses of scripture that we learn A LOT about who Jesus really is and about who we can be in relation to Him. Not only do these 18 verses set the stage for the rest of the gospel of John, but they help us have a better understanding of the world in which we live.Come join us this weekend as we unpack the depth and breadth of Jesus' life, how that can shape our identity, and what it means to live as people of grace and truth in a world that can be lacking in both.

Rewind to six months ago, the Music Marketing Manifesto podcast was among the very first music industry podcasts to discuss the release of ChatGPT and the looming AI revolution. Fast forward to the present, AI is not just a buzzword - it's a seismic shift that's ignited a veritable arms race in technology.AI tools such as ChatGPT 4, Midjourney, Runway's Gen 2, Stable Diffusion, and many others have permeated every corner of our lives, with an especially potent impact on the arts and music industry. Some herald this as a landmark leap in human evolution, while others are sounding the alarm, painting it as a potential hazard to our very existence.In today's episode, we're taking a reflective journey back through these whirlwind six months. We'll dissect what's transpired, the promises kept, and the ones that merely sputtered out, and we'll discuss what we might be expect going forward.Moreover, we'll share tangible, real-world AI use cases that can elevate your music career here and now, not in some speculative future. This episode aims to provide a comprehensive catch-up on this crucial topic and perhaps, make you reevaluate your perspective on AI.

Imagine a world without books. Sounds terrible, doesn't it? Before the printing press was invented, people did not have access to books, which means they didn't have access to knowledge or even stories.
When we believe that the Bible is truly the Word of God and live it out, we will live lives of impact. We're all looking for purpose, but the greatest impact we can make is giving the Gospel to people—the Gospel that Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected so that we could have forgiveness for our sins and access to God's destiny for us. Check out this episode of One Quick Thought as we continue our series about the church that changes the world.

In the latest episode of The Revelation Project Podcast, host Monica interviews Dr. Carla Ionescu, an expert on the goddess Artemis and her relationship to women in both the ancient and modern worlds. Dive deep into Carla's fascinating journey from a PhD researcher to falling into a devotional relationship with the Goddess Artemis. Despite the male-dominated academic world which often dismisses the insights and passions that surround Goddess scholarship, Carla discover the magnetic pull this goddess has over countless women, inspiring them to be fierce, unapologetic, and free. Carla is the host of her very own Artemis-inspired podcast, The Goddess Project, which aims to empower and educate people on the divine feminine. By working closely with goddesses, we can heal patriarchal wounds and unleash our intrinsic power. We also dive into theories about Artemis and her embodiment of the balanced masculine and feminine, lost rituals, and the transformation brought to those who embrace the goddess within. Episode Highlights: * Carla's academic journey to discovering Artemis and developing an intimate relationship with her * The importance of goddesses like Artemis in breaking free from the stereotypes forced upon women by patriarchal society * Ways in which women can work with different goddesses to re-integrate and restore the feminine aspects of their existence * A historical look at how women used to practice in caves without fear, and how patriarchal storytelling has attempted to suppress the power of women. * The call to restore the feminine within and implications of this movement for society at large * Why the modern world often categorizes women into specific roles that limit their true potential and unique qualities * Patriarchal narratives have historically attempted to marginalize women's power and authority within spiritual practices * Artemis as protector for those who honour her is all encompassing, her vengeance for those who cross her is swift and fatal. Filled with examples of ritual, symbolism and an extensive collection of Artemis myths and folklore, Carla's book is a comprehensive compilation of all things Artemis, and her fundamental role in the communal, political and ritual development of the Greco-Roman world. The goddess of the hunt is more than just a virgin in the woods. Her worship can be traced to a time before the Minoans, and her rituals include all facets of the human experience, starting from birth rituals to rites of passage, to death and beyond. Her protection for those who honour her is all encompassing, her vengeance for those who cross her is swift and fatal. While classic scholars focused mostly on Olympian deities such as Apollo, Athena, Zeus and Dionysius, this book provides vivid and detailed evidence that the goddess Artemis has been underrated for much too long. Dr. Ionescu's work is a labour of love and research, born out of her long-standing certainty that Artemis was the most prevalent and influential goddess of the Mediterranean. Dr. Carla Ionescu is a Romanian refugee who escaped the Communist regime with her family when she was 10 years old. She is also an adrenaline junkie, an animal lover, and a natural born storyteller. She likes to ride motorcycles real fast, and research through archival documents very carefully. Carla's research centers on the influential nature of Artemis both in the Greek world and in Ephesus. Her work provides evidence which suggests that Artemis is the most prevalent and influential goddess of the Mediterranean. As one of the leading experts in the worship and ritual of Artemis Ephesia, Dr. Ionescu spends most of her time teaching in the field of Ancient History and Women's Studies, and/or applying for grants to support her research travels. In the summers she scavenges new locations and cities worldwide, digging through the remains of grave sites, ruins, and abandoned buildings, trying to uncover the long-lost mystery that is Artemis, The Great Mother. Special Guest: Carla Ionescu.
From Nobel winners to great innovators, Dan Saladino explores the history of prize-winning food ideas that changed the world, including researchers who uncovered the secrets of our stomachs to the plant breeds transforming the future of wheat. Nominations are now open for this year's BBC Food and Farming Awards until June 19th, including Best Innovation which was created to celebrate ideas that will make food production better for us and for the planet. For more than a century, and around the world, ground-breaking ideas linked to food have featured in awards and prizes, from Ivan Pavlov's research on our digestive system through to Norman Borlaug's efforts to increase food production with crop breeding in the 1960s. Both received a Nobel Prize. In more recent years awards have been created to find solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face in food and farming. The former chef of the Swedish restaurant Faviken, Magnus Nilsson now oversees the Food Planet Prize, the world's biggest environmental prize. He tells Dan about previous winners who have created solutions to plastics in our oceans and the problem of abandoned fishing equipment, so called 'ghost nets' and also a project in Africa providing refrigeration to farmers which is resulting in a dramatic reduction in food waste. Another award winner in the programme is Heidi Kuhn, founder of Roots of Peace. This year she was recognised by the US based World Food Prize for decades of work helping to clear mines from regions impacted by conflict and return the land to food production. Produced and presented by Dan Saladino.

Season 2, Ep 7: Reloading lost episodes from the early Final Word. To end the 2015-16 summer, Australia head to New Zealand. With the one-dayers done it's time for the first Test at Wellington. Would it be defined by the bat? By the ball? No, by the umpire's arm, calling Doug Bracewell for a no-ball that wasn't, and reprieving Adam Voges who would go on to a double century. It was the beginning of the eventual move to no-ball automation via the third umpire. Also, another Fake Green Mamba, some Trent Boult fun at No.11, Khawaja purrs with the bat and goes flair in the field, an argument about 'strangling' and the worst dismissals in cricket, the best return catch we've ever seen, Voges went past Bradman, Tim Southee kept hitting sixes, and we were puzzled by the notion of a two-Test series. Innocent times. This season was originally recorded for the ABC. Send us a Nerd Pledge at patreon.com/thefinalword Find more episodes at finalwordcricket.com Learn more about your ad choices.
