Howie was asked to speak at an International Conference to 4000 people Our speaker, Howard Baskin, is the Advisory Board Chairman of Big Cat Rescue, the only accredited sanctuary in Florida devoted to big cats and one of the largest sanctuaries in the world. In this talk he will explain from experience on the ground why the U.S. regulatory scheme cannot work, how it increases the likelihood of extinction of the tiger, and propose the solution.   He wrote the following as the draft for the theme of his talk:   THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF US TIGER CUB PETTING ON PREVENTING EXTINCTION OF TIGERS IN THE WILD   As recently as 1990 there was an estimated 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there are less than 4000. Preserving endangered species around the world from man induced extinction requires the cooperation of all nations. This is largely managed through the international treaty known as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna, or CITES (pronounced sigh tees). The nations of the world meet every two years at CITES Conventions to make decisions that fall largely on each nation to actually implement. The United States plays a leadership role in proposing positions and urging other nations to support those positions. In contrast, some countries seek to “farm” tigers and legalize the trade in tiger parts that drives the poaching that threatens the existence of tigers in the wild.   What is not well known is that the impracticality of enforcing the current regulatory scheme in the U.S., which results in these iconic animals living in miserable conditions in roadside zoos and in tiger cubs being ripped from their mothers at birth to use for cub petting and photo ops, impairs the credibility of the United States in its effort to oppose tiger farming and save the tiger.   Hi, I'm Carole Baskin and I've been writing my story since I was able to write, but when the media goes to share it, they only choose the parts that fit their idea of what will generate views.  These are my views and opinions. If I'm going to share my story, it should be the whole story.  The titles are the dates things happened. If you have any interest in who I really am please start at the beginning of this playlist: http://savethecats.org/   I know there will be people who take things out of context and try to use them to validate their own misconception, but you have access to the whole story.  My hope is that others will recognize themselves in my words and have the strength to do what is right for themselves and our shared planet.     You can help feed the cats at no cost to you using Amazon Smile!

Lorraine Turner works diligently to advocate for endangered animals. It started with a meditation session where she had a vision of Calico Horses. That launched her on a journey of learning to communicate with animals, creating textiles and building a community that is inspiring. Her advocacy work helps several different animal organizations globally. We dive into a conversation about the why behind her work, the legacy of textiles she has recently discovered in her lineage, techniques, and how she shares her knowledge as well as the many projects she has on the go. We have a shared technique in using thread painting  and we talk about our experiences as professional artists, Lorraine even takes an opportunity to ask me about my journey! Lorraine burst into the world of textile art in 2018 with a 26-piece special exhibit at IQF in Houston, just two years after creating her very first art quilt! Since then, she has become a Benartex fabric designer, BERNINA Ambassador, Aurifil Designer, Aurifilisopher, been featured in major quilting magazines, and seen on Quilting Arts TV and the Quilt Show with Ricky Tims. She is also a professional animal communicator and uses this as inspiration for her work.A commercial artist for forty years, Lorraine won two Emmy Awards as a lead designer for the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers and is the recipient of multiple awards at the San Diego International Comic-Con in her role as Art Director of the Library of American Comics.She combines her varied experience as a watercolorist, commercial artist, and television animator with her love for all things fabric to create exciting multi-textured fabric designs.Lorraine also teaches and lectures internationally, and is an author and motivational speaker who strongly believes in moving thought into action.She has yet to meet a fabric embellishment she doesn't like!Lorraine works from her studio in Clearwater, Florida.Business Name: Calicohorses.comWebsite:https://calicohorses.com/Social Media handles: Instagram: @lorraineturnerartistFacebook: Lorraine Turner Textile ArtistYouTube: Lorraine TurnerYou can find me, Bridget O'Flaherty - The Sustainable Quilter here:www.bridgetoflaherty.comInstagram: @thesustainablequilterFacebook: @thesustainablequilterYoutube: Bridget O'Flaherty The Sustainable QuilterSupport the show buy me a cuppa tea!https://bridgetoflaherty.com/product/support-the-podcast/Music Credit: Thanks to Isaac Matthews for his incredible talent.You can find and follow him on Instagram @hesjustakid for more of his music. Support the showSupport the show

I am worried about men. I think we are an endangered species. Here is why: SPORTS We listen to sportscasters who are making millions talk about athletes who are making millions for team owners who make billions. There are dedicated radio stations that talk about nothing else than how the team is doing, and what they need to do to win. None of that talk has any effect on the team. Zero FOOTBALL COMMERCIALS Then when you watch a football game, you always have: 1. The spokesmodel who didn't play football but is STUNNINGLY beautiful who will "pass it over" to people who actually played the game. She can also do that special piece during breast cancer awareness month. 2. There will be boner pill commercials, cause you know...priorities 3. Remedies for baldness. We will ship it to you in a private box - because nobody knows you're bald. 4. Trucks. Big trucks with deep voiceovers. These trucks have power unlike your small penis, which needs a blue pull to function. 5. Beer. If you can't afford a large truck you head to the mountains. This commercial lists no facts and only has a sweaty beer can that eventually you get to hear open.  5. Gambling. Kevin Hart (another millionaire) talks about the best way to gamble all of the money you worked hard to earn. They are giving away money to people who light their money on fire the fastest. Oh, and here is a phone number if this commercial triggered you.  BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE 6. My Self Esteem is tied to my team. If we lose, my week is wrecked (Really?) 7. Tick Shots - I just started paying attention to TikTok, and I am AMAZED at how GUYS (no women are doing this) are spending what must be hours if not days filming themselves trying to put a cup into a cup, or a ping pong ball, or flying a card into a clothespin. Whatever it is, it took a LOT of time to film. Which makes me think, "How much free time do YOU HAVE?" So we are giving anyone who wants to say how stupid, pigheaded, and idiotic men are - lots of evidence.  Enjoy this episode? Buy Dave a Coffee

Feminism that arose in the 1960-70s had both a good and negative role in our society. The good thing feminism did was its emphasis on equality among both genders. The bad it brought into our culture is that it perhaps unwittingly emasculated the man, and essentially made men disposable. Thus, the ascent of fatherless homes has wreaked a long lasting devastating impact on the nuclear family.Hardest hit is the black family structure. As the saying goes, "when White Folks Catch a Cold, Black Folks Get Pneumonia." Before succumbing to public outcry, #BLM once had on their website the goal to: “dismantle the patriarchal practice” and “...disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement.." Both concepts prove to be a combustible ideological mix and harmful blow to the black family structure which already suffers the generational stronghold of fatherlessness.Ironically, perhaps the so-called concept of 'toxic masculinity' is the result of men growing up without fathers.If we follow the word of God, we can never go wrong. God will never mismanage our lives. Let's stand on God's word as He navigates our lives towards being the men we are called to be.

A woman was not designed to take on the role of a man, and conversely, neither can a man take on important roles that women were designed biologically to perform.The Bible clearly and unequivocally states: Genesis 1:27 KJV“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”Our society is at a brink of collapse.

It was my great honor to talk with Suzanne Haber about the importance of anatomy in neurosurgery and neuromodulation as a whole. Among many other topics, we discussed her seminal work on the subthalamic nucleus, the anterior limb of the internal capsule and briefly present work on the zona incerta, also in synopsis with earlier work from Mahlon DeLong (#22) and Anne Young (#23). Crucially, Suzanne is not only an anatomist but one with a particular interest in deep brain stimulation. She leads a Conte center with the NIMH focused on Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and has carried out seminal work about the striatal system. One key area Suzanne has worked on lately was the comparison between noninvasive imaging (diffusion-MRI based tractography) and tract tracing data. Together with Anastasía Yendiki (Martinos Center Boston), she runs the "iron tract challenge", in which tractography methods folk competes to reconstruct tracts from diffusion data as best they can – which are then compared to the ground truth from tracing data. Together with Cameron McIntyre (#10), alongside three other anatomists, Suzanne recently created the basal ganglia pathway atlas which represents a unique dataset to study connectomic deep brain stimulation data.

Money does strange things to people, as Annah Lake Zhu notes in her latest book Rosewood: Endangered Species Conservation and the Rise of Global China (Harvard University Press: 2022) In Madagascar, loggers, flush with cash from the rosewood trade, don't quite know how to react to their newfound largesse, sometimes demanding less money for their wares out of confusion. Rumors abound of how loggers make their money. There's no way that simple wood could garner so much profit, people say, so observers think they must be trading something else–like human bones. Annah's book studies globalization, the rise of China, and global environmental politics through trade in one commodity: Madagascar rosewood, used in furniture. In this interview, Annah and I talk about this important material–the commodity, the cultural product, and the conservation target–in China and Madagascar.

Money does strange things to people, as Annah Lake Zhu notes in her latest book Rosewood: Endangered Species Conservation and the Rise of Global China (Harvard University Press: 2022) In Madagascar, loggers, flush with cash from the rosewood trade, don't quite know how to react to their newfound largesse, sometimes demanding less money for their wares out of confusion. Rumors abound of how loggers make their money. There's no way that simple wood could garner so much profit, people say, so observers think they must be trading something else–like human bones. Annah's book studies globalization, the rise of China, and global environmental politics through trade in one commodity: Madagascar rosewood, used in furniture. In this interview, Annah and I talk about this important material–the commodity, the cultural product, and the conservation target–in China and Madagascar.

(This full conversation is from the episode 'Greenpeace at 50:  The Climate Crisis is a Fight Not an Argument' released April 18th, 2022) In this special feature for Earth Day, we focus on just one group: Greenpeace, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The environmental group has been in the headlines again, confronting Russian oil tankers in many ports. They've attracted lots of attention and scored many victories in the years they've been in existence. But it's not enough. The climate crisis is more urgent than ever, the world's not on track to get off fossil fuels in the time we need, and the most vulnerable are paying the heaviest price. In this special, we spend the program with the leadership of Greenpeace, including co-executive Directors, Annie Leonard and Ebony Twilley Martin, the first African American woman to head a "Big Green" group. The changes the group has made to embed racial justice and equity across their organization are going to take time, they admit, but without them, they'll never shift the power structure that's proven so intransigent up to this point. What's it going to take to shift power internally, avoid false solutions, and make the sort of transformation we need, as a nation, and as a group? They say there is no choice. The changes they're making now are essential. We can't bring about a greener, more equitable future with shortcuts.Music Featured in the Middle of the Podcast:  Humpback Mix of “Hope Bay ” by Dazzle Drums,  from the Climate Soundtrack project, produced by DJ's for Climate Action, where producers from around the world were asked to create original music from a ‘climate sample pack' of field recordings gathered during years of Greenpeace expeditions and activism across the globe.GuestsTefere Gebre, Chief Program Officer, Greenpeace USAAnnie Leonard, Co-Executive Director, Greenpeace USAEbony Twilley Martin, Co-Executive Director, Greenpeace USA Full episode notes including related articles and LFShow episodes to watch and/or listen to are posted at https://Patreon.com/theLFShow.
