    88. The World's First Underground Railway

    London History

    London's Underground railway is not only the oldest system of its kind, it's also the world's most famous. The Tube, as it's also known is more than just a way of getting around the capital, it is also a symbol of the city. More than four million people use it everyday. On Tuesday this week more than 130,000 passengers piled aboard the first trains running on the new £18.9bn Elizabeth line within hours of its launch. Transport enthusiasts gathered at Paddington station and Abbey Wood, in south-east London, to be on the first morning services. The Elizabeth line is believed to help transform life and travel in London and the South East and will increase central London's rail capacity by 10 per cent. With history being made this week I thought it would be the perfect time to look at London's very first underground line and that means going back to Victorian London, Lord Palmerston is prime minister and Charles Dickens is alive. Learn things about London that most Londoners don't even know in a 20 minute espresso shot episode of London history with a splash of personality. There's so much we can't fit into our tours, no matter how hard we try. This London history podcast is where we can get down and dirty with the detail!

But when she was 30, her mother Shelby, was killed in a car accident, one hour after dropping Rebecca off from a family camping trip to the Adirondacks. Four years later, her father died of a heart attack while on a cruise to the Bahamas. Lucky him, unlucky everyone else. Suddenly, she was actually an orphan herself. So much loss at such a relatively young age un-tethered Rebecca. There were husbands yet to meet, puppies yet o dopt, and so many other miles yet to stone—but all of it would have to be done without her own parents' guidance, along with dealing with the logistical aftermath of each of their deaths. Dear reader, it was bad. But she wasn't alone. Together with Gabrielle and some other friends, Rebecca formed a monthly dinner party called WWDP (Women With Dead Parents, obviously). The WWDP conversations were wide-ranging, but the common denominator was a shared understanding. A general “I get it.” No apologies, no accusations, no questions asked. Other than: Who brought the chocolate cake, and can I get the recipe? Because if Rebecca couldn't have parents, dammit, she could at least have chocolate cake—not to mention friends who understood the particular nuances of going through profound loss way before they expected to. With Modern Loss, Rebecca hopes to bring that refreshing openness to a broader audience, and community, who could use their own place setting at the table of loss. Rebecca has been a lifelong organizer of communities, both public and private. From getting her masters in journalism from Columbia University, to accompanying Stephen Colbert on a Peabody Award-winning quest to get to know all 435 U.S. Representatives, to helping to grow a leading network of Jewish creatives, Rebecca has always found strength in numbers, and bringing those numbers together. She has contributed pieces across media, including TIME, NBC Think, The New York Times, Marie Claire, Refinery29, Elle Decor, and Tablet Magazine's podcast, Vox Tablet; has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning; and has spoken at Chicago Ideas Week, Amazon, HBO, and Experience Camps‘ annual benefit, where she was its 2017 honoree. She has also led Modern Loss retreats at Kripalu; keynoted for several organizations, including Good Grief and Capital One; and is known for putting her special touch of levity, depth and a bit of comfortable weirdness on Modern Loss' live storytelling events. Rebecca lives in New York and the Massachusetts Berkshires with her husband, two little boys, and labradoodle. Keep up with her on Twitter @rebeccasoffer, where she regularly tweets at 3 am because she barely sleeps these days (see the part about the two little boys). Contact her for speaking engagements, press inquiries, to book a live storytelling event, and more at rebecca@modernloss.com. -------------------------------------------------------- Toluse Olorunnipa is a political enterprise and investigations reporter for The Washington Post. He joined the Post in 2019 and previously covered the White House. Before that, he spent five years at Bloomberg, where he reported on politics and policy from Washington and Florida. A landmark biography by two prizewinning Washington Post reporters that reveals how systemic racism shaped George Floyd's life and legacy—from his family's roots in the tobacco fields of North Carolina, to ongoing inequality in housing, education, health care, criminal justice, and policing—telling the story of how one man's tragic experience brought about a global movement for change. “It is a testament to the power of His Name Is George Floyd that the book's most vital moments come not after Floyd's death, but in its intimate, unvarnished and scrupulous account of his life . . . Impressive.” —New York Times Book Review “Since we know George Floyd's death with tragic clarity, we must know Floyd's America—and life—with tragic clarity. Essential for our times.” —Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist   “A much-needed portrait of the life, times, and martyrdom of George Floyd, a chronicle of the racial awakening sparked by his brutal and untimely death, and an essential work of history I hope everyone will read.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr., author ofThe Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song The events of that day are now tragically familiar: on May 25, 2020, George Floyd became the latest Black person to die at the hands of the police, murdered outside of a Minneapolis convenience store by white officer Derek Chauvin. The video recording of his death set off the largest protest movement in the history of the United States, awakening millions to the pervasiveness of racial injustice. But long before his face was painted onto countless murals and his name became synonymous with civil rights, Floyd was a father, partner, athlete, and friend who constantly strove for a better life.   His Name Is George Floyd tells the story of a beloved figure from Houston's housing projects as he faced the stifling systemic pressures that come with being a Black man in America. Placing his narrative within the context of the country's enduring legacy of institutional racism, this deeply reported account examines Floyd's family roots in slavery and sharecropping, the segregation of his schools, the overpolicing of his community amid a wave of mass incarceration, and the callous disregard toward his struggle with addiction—putting today's inequality into uniquely human terms. Drawing upon hundreds of interviews with Floyd's closest friends and family, his elementary school teachers and varsity coaches, civil rights icons, and those in the highest seats of political power, Washington Post reporters Robert Samuels and Toluse Olorunnipa offer a poignant and moving exploration of George Floyd's America, revealing how a man who simply wanted to breathe ended up touching the world.

    Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

    Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for May 19, 2022 is: kibosh • KYE-bosh • noun Kibosh refers to something that serves as a check or stop. It is usually used in the phrase "put the kibosh on." // The rain put the kibosh on the Fourth of July fireworks display. See the entry > Examples: "The state Senate last week put the kibosh on up to $60 million more in aid for school districts." — Kevin Landrigan, The (Manchester) New Hampshire Sunday News, 24 Apr. 2022 Did you know? Evidence of kibosh dates the word to only a few years before Charles Dickens used it in an 1836 sketch, but despite kibosh being relatively young in English its source is elusive. Claims were once made that it was Yiddish, despite the absence of a plausible Yiddish source. Another hypothesis pointed to Irish caidhp bhais, literally, "coif (or cap) of death," explained as headgear a judge put on when pronouncing a death sentence, or as a covering pulled over the face of a corpse when a coffin was closed. But evidence for any metaphorical use of this phrase in Irish is lacking, and kibosh is not recorded in English as spoken in Ireland until decades after Dickens' use. More recent source theories include a heraldic term for an animal's head when born with only its face fully showing, and an Arabic word meaning “whip, lash,” but as the note at our etymology explains, no theory has sufficient evidence to back it.

Two renowned beer culture writers, Pete Brown and Dave Infante also join us for a conversation about unionizing in the craft beer industry. The episode kicks off with Pete's description of the pubs and private clubs in Britain, along with his solid argument about how Shakespeare, Beyonce, and Charles Dicken all share a favorite spot in London. We also get to listen to Pete's upcoming book, “Clubland,” and the inspiration behind it. The discussion then moves back to the States with Dave and Jerard talking about unions among craft breweries, and interindustry solidarity in organizing. While Jerard brings up Fair State Brewing Cooperative as a shining example of successful unions, Dave talks about the struggles and failures that workers might face in this uphill battle. Last but certainly not least, the gang dives deep into class consciousness and its education among mainstream discord, talking about Kim Kelly's “Fight Like Hell,” football, and what Pete calls football.

    Elizabeth Gaskell had only written one novel when Charles Dickens started publishing her work in his journal Household Words. But soon she would become famous as the author of Cranford and North and South, two of the best novels of the Victorian era. Dickens proved to be a generous and artist-friendly editor, offering suggestions but allowing Gaskell to have the final say over her work (with one exception). In this episode, Jacke looks at the ghost story that Dickens asked Gaskell to write, along with the alternative ending that Dickens first suggested and then wrote for her consideration.

    On this episode Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam take a close look at Gilles Deleuze's essay "Immanence: A Life", one of his final writings in which he describes immanence as a 'transcendental field'. Deleuze makes use of a lesser known work by Charles Dickens entitled “The Same Respected Friend in More Aspects Than One", casting the events of the story as a paradigmatic example of  how singularities and their manners of expression are distinct from processes of individuation. This discussion approaches some of the ethical implications that might be drawn from Deleuze's work on immanence.LARB essay: https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/a-singular-and-yet-non-arbitrary-life/Subscribe to Acid Horizon on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/acidhorizonpodcastMerch: http://www.crit-drip.comSubscribe to us on Apple Podcasts: https://tinyurl.com/169wvvhiHappy Hour at Hippel's (Adam's blog): https://happyhourathippels.wordpress.comDestratified (Matt's Blog): https://destratified.com/​Revolting Bodies (Will's Blog): https://revoltingbodies.com​Split Infinities (Craig's Substack): https://splitinfinities.substack.com/​Music: https://sereptie.bandcamp.com/ and https://thecominginsurrection.bandcamp.com/Support the show

    LensWork - Photography and the Creative Process

    HT1162 - Sketches My approach to photography has been majorly influenced by the book Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens. A "sketch" to me means a careful and detail examination of some moment, some person, or some event. It's looking with more than a glance, relating more than an instant. I much prefer the term "sketches" to cumbersome alternatives like "project-oriented photography."

Author bio: Alysa Wishingrad once had a whole different career working in theater, tv, and film, but nothing could be better or more exciting than writing stories and crafting worlds for middle-grade readers. 8-12 year-olds are truly some of the smartest, most open, and inquisitive people around, and Alysa is dedicated to helping them hold onto that magic as they grow up.When she's not writing she's probably out walking her two very demanding rescue dogs, who came all the way from Alexandria, Egypt to share their shedding fur and love. Or she might be trying to figure out what to make for dinner - again! - for her family. But, if she's very lucky, she's out at the theater getting lost in a wonderful story.Her debut, THE VERDIGRIS PAWN, was published by Harper Collins in July of 2021.Some of her writing influences mentioned in the podcast are:Francis Hardinge (The Lie Tree), Charles Dickens, Anne Ursu, Brian Selsnick (The Marvels, The Invention of Hugo Cabret), and Franny Billingsly.As always, please feel free to connect with Heather and  Cheryl in the following places:www.CherylCaldwellAuthor.comwww.HeatherClarkBooks.comwww.MGBookParty.comOrder LEMON DROP FALLS by Heather Clark here.Twitter: @CherylCaldwell, @HClarkWrites, @MGBookPartyInstagram: @SaltyQuills, @HeatherClarkBooks, @MGBookPartyClubhouse: @CherylCaldwell, @HClarkWritesOr Join MGBookParty on Clubhouse here.

    After a long day at work my partner always asks how I am feeling. I usually reply with one of the two:- hungry-ish or tired-ish. So what does this 'ish'' mean? Do I need to eat or go to bed? Ish spelt I-S-H is an informal suffix used to say about or approximately. This informal suffix can be added to many words including numbers or times of the day. For example:- How old is she?- Umm 40ish...or - What time will you be at home?'- Around 2ish...You can also use ish with gradable adjectives. A gradable adjective is one that can have different levels of intensity. An example of a gradable adjective is hot, so you can be a bit hot, fairly hot or hot ish. For centuries now, "ish" has been rather promiscuous in English. In 1894 in an article from The Daily News, a London newspaper of which Charles Dickens was briefly the editor! We can find an example of ish being used while describing a house, they wrote:- Some huge pile of building, generally much more Queen Anne-ish than the houses of Queen Anne's own time.Here the building was being described as similar to the style of Queen Anne but not the same, hence the use of ish.Nowadays ish can be used, not only as a suffix but alone, in this sense ish means more or less the same thing: kind of, thereabouts, in a way.As described by the linguist Stefanie Kuzmack, ish refers back to a particular idea. So we have a breakaway from a suffix to a stand-alone word. So instead of simply adding ish to an adjective, I am coldish. It can be used alone:- Are you cold?- Yeah, ish.So how are you feeling? Hungry-ish? Tired-ish? English-ish? Let us know!That's the end of our episode so remember to tune in for our next episode to see what new slang we have in store for you!

See the entry > Examples: "It was an unfortunate ending for a defense that sputtered early as a bunch of new faces learned to adjust…. The late-season collapse, which included an inability to … consistently pressure the quarterback, flummoxed players and coaches alike." — Jim McBride, The Boston Globe, 11 Mar. 2022 Did you know? No one is completely sure where the word flummox comes from, but Charles Dickens was aware of it and used it in his 1837 novel The Pickwick Papers. It became quite common in both British and American English by the end of the 19th century.

Certain characters get cut out, new ones invented out of whole cloth, and no less than NINE musical numbers to fill up an hour of your valuable holiday viewing time.

Biografía René Rebetez: Colombiano y Mexicano. Fruto del amor entre una artista y maestra colombiana y un relojero suizo, en 1933 llegó al mundo en el municipio colombiano de Subachoque René Rebetez Cortés, quien demostró sus habilidades creativas sumando experiencia como cineasta y escritor. Este hombre que se especializó en literatura fantástica y en el ámbito de la ciencia ficción perdió a su padre siendo un niño de apenas cuatro años de existencia. A raíz de ese hecho, su mamá y él se instalaron en la casa que su abuelo materno, un escultor llamado Dionisio Cortés, poseía en Bogotá. A medida que fue creciendo, René se dejó cautivar por historias creadas por Julio Verne, Emilio Salgari, Charles Dickens y Robert Louis Stevenson. En plena adolescencia, impulsado por el deseo de contactarse con sus familiares de la rama paterna, Rebetez partió rumbo a Suiza y allí empezó a realizar composiciones poéticas. En esa época, además de hacer el servicio militar, asistió a la Universidad de Ginebra para formarse en Ciencias Económicas. De tanto en tanto se trasladaba a la capital de Francia para desempeñarse como traductor y alimentar su producción literaria. Ya de nuevo en su patria, trabajó para la revista “Visión” y elaboró quesos. Más tarde estuvo en Cuba y luego en suelo mexicano, donde aprendió a restaurar arte colonial y fue empleado de una galería de arte. Por ese entonces leyó a Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley, Isaac Asimov y Arthur C. Clarke, encontrando estímulos y referencias para idear tramas de ciencia ficción.

En esta ocasión he grabado dos versiones, una con base musical y otra solo con mi voz, me gustaría leer vuestras opiniones por si queréis que lo haga más a menudo. 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀 Todos los cuentos tienen su historia. Las circunstancias en que un relato se gesta deben marcarlo, como a los hombres y a las mujeres, indeleblemente; y por lo tanto desde el momento de su concepción hasta que ve la luz, lo fabuloso es un testimonio poético de situaciones auténticas. Nada hay más prodigioso que la realidad si compartimos con Edgar Allan Poe la certeza de que todo lo que vemos o creemos ver no es más que un sueño dentro de otro sueño, Ahora esos inagotables sueños dentro de este sueño que conforman el vivir se denominan realidad virtual. Y La única forma de vernos, es tomando distancia de nosotros mismos y esto es lo que la imaginación permite hacer. Y en lo que me concierne, esta es mi razón para contar historias. Pero una cosa es contar historias y otra contar esta bella historia escrita por René Rebetez, mi mejor deseo es que el descifrador de este relato disfrute tanto escuchándome como yo disfrute grabándolo. Biografía René Rebetez: Colombiano y Mexicano. Fruto del amor entre una artista y maestra colombiana y un relojero suizo, en 1933 llegó al mundo en el municipio colombiano de Subachoque René Rebetez Cortés, quien demostró sus habilidades creativas sumando experiencia como cineasta y escritor. Este hombre que se especializó en literatura fantástica y en el ámbito de la ciencia ficción perdió a su padre siendo un niño de apenas cuatro años de existencia. A raíz de ese hecho, su mamá y él se instalaron en la casa que su abuelo materno, un escultor llamado Dionisio Cortés, poseía en Bogotá. A medida que fue creciendo, René se dejó cautivar por historias creadas por Julio Verne, Emilio Salgari, Charles Dickens y Robert Louis Stevenson. En plena adolescencia, impulsado por el deseo de contactarse con sus familiares de la rama paterna, Rebetez partió rumbo a Suiza y allí empezó a realizar composiciones poéticas. En esa época, además de hacer el servicio militar, asistió a la Universidad de Ginebra para formarse en Ciencias Económicas. De tanto en tanto se trasladaba a la capital de Francia para desempeñarse como traductor y alimentar su producción literaria. Ya de nuevo en su patria, trabajó para la revista “Visión” y elaboró quesos. Más tarde estuvo en Cuba y luego en suelo mexicano, donde aprendió a restaurar arte colonial y fue empleado de una galería de arte. Por ese entonces leyó a Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley, Isaac Asimov y Arthur C. Clarke, encontrando estímulos y referencias para idear tramas de ciencia ficción. Falleció en la Isla de la Providencia el 30 de diciembre de 1999. 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀 PLAYLIST AUDIOS PARA FANS: https://www.ivoox.com/audios-para-fans-historias-para-ser-leidas_bk_list_791018_1.html Escucha el episodio completo en la app de iVoox, o descubre todo el catálogo de iVoox Originals
