A massive and irreplaceable archive of historically significant photographs is up for sale on the open market, after a lengthy ordeal abroad that almost saw them destroyed. Dubbed the Fairfax Archives, in 2013 the collection of 1.4 million photographs was sent by Fairfax Media to the United States to be digitised. However the company carrying out the digitisation later became linked to sports memorabilia fraud, was raided by the FBI and later bankrupted. The collection of images, as well as others from Australian newspapers, were seized and held as collateral on a US$14 million loan, and were in danger of being destroyed. An L.A-based gallery has since bought the entire archive, and is putting some of the photos up for sale. Described by historians as the country's "national photo album", the archive spans from 1840 to 2005. It includes historic moments like the 1981 Springbok Tour protests, the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior, the aftermath of the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake and Sir Edmund Hillary's ascent of Mt Everest - as well as royal visits, Auckland's Queen St and 40,000 pictures of the All Blacks. So where should the Fairfax Archive ideally end up? And what does the sale of the collection mean for the preservation of our history? Kathryn speaks to Daniel Miller, the owner of Duncan Miller Gallery in Los Angeles and Dr Paul Moon, a professor of History at AUT who was asked by Duncan Miller Gallery to help identify the images.
Join us as Clarence Fairfax, from Frederick, MD, shares his experience, strength, and hope around today's Daily Reflection, Intuition and Inspiration. INTUITION AND INSPIRATION. . . we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or a decision. We relax and take it easy. We don't struggle.— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 86I invest my time in what I truly love. Step Eleven is a discipline that allows me and my Higher Power to be together, reminding me that, with God's help, intuition and inspiration are possible. Practice of the Step brings on selflove. In a consistent attempt to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power, I am subtly reminded of my unhealthy past, with its patterns of grandiose thinking and false feelings of omnipotence. When I ask for the power to carry out God's will for me, I am made aware of my powerlessness. Humility and a healthy selflove are compatible, a direct result of working Step Eleven.From the book Daily ReflectionsCopyright © 1990 by Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.Support the showNeed the Daily Reflection Book?

Sam and Emma host Heather Digby Parton, contributing writer at Salon.com and proprietor of the blog Hullabaloo, to round up the week in news. First, Emma and Sam run through updates on Elon Musk's assault on now-former Twitter staff, surging US employment numbers, Democratic polling in Georgia and Pennsylvania, and the San Francisco Police's “Quiet Quitting” trend ahead of the recall of Chesa Boudin, before diving into Trump's recent announcement of his “very very very [probable]” 2024 presidential run. Digby then joins as she dives right into the state of polling heading into the midterms, walking through the contrast between how much better polling is now than one year ago and the stagnancy that they show in comparison to expectations around the Dobbs decision, also touching on the continuing trend of US political polling becoming more and more out of touch with actual voting. Next, she, Sam, and Emma reflect on the progressively pessimistic and dubious media coverage of the Democratic party, beginning with the coining of the “liberal media” term in the Nixon era, and continuing through to the constant bashing of Democratic chances and tactics that we see today (as in the coverage of Hillary's emails). Wrapping up, they tackle Biden's late but useful pivot towards pinning inflation on corporate greed, look at Tim Ryan's recent statement on January 6th in front of a Fox audience, and what action to take heading into the midterms. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss Elon Musk's swift destruction of Twitter's moderating abilities, and the potential impact of a payment-based verification service heading into an election. Mike Lee publicly announces his fight against social security, Chris from Fairfax discusses his town's campaign for rent control, and Gabe in the Berkshires discusses ballot questions in Mass. Kowalski explores upcoming ballot measures in Nebraska, Kayla in CA discusses the drama in LA city council races, and Joe Rogan says it actually wasn't his fault for spreading transphobic misinformation, plus, your calls and IMs!

In this episode we cover the legend of the Bunny Man in Fairfax, Virginia. The legend is based on two real, and scary, stories of men in Burke Virginia in 1969 and/or 1970 who threatened locals while dressed like Bunnies. From there, the legend spread to outrageous and easily deniable stories, but it is very spooky.But before we get into that, Robin tells Zoey about the Zak Bagans Haunted Museum in Las Vegas, where Zoey will be honeymooning in just one week!Sources: https://hauntedhospitality.wordpress.com/2022/10/25/ep-82-zoey-faces-her-biggest-fear-bunnies/Visit us on Social Media!

This week we're revisiting one of our favorite episodes from the Artemis archives... Beavers are amazing! Artemis is diving straight into the beaver pond with Dr. Emily Fairfax, ecohydrologist, science story teller, and beaver dam enthusiast. Join us to hear how this keystone species shapes our landscape, supports wildlife, and improves our watershed wherever they slap a tail. Plus, don't forget to take our podcast listener survey for a chance to win a $100 gift card to Isle Royale Outfitters. The giveaway closes on Nov. 2. 2:00 "Beavers are a keystone species, which means they modify their environment in a way that influences the whole ecosystem." 3:30 First beaver experience... when your animal guide finds you 5:30 Idaho's beaver reintroduction efforts involved parachuting them in the Frank Church 7:00 Hauling a canoe over a beaver dam (over and over) in the Boundary Waters makes you realize what incredible engineers beavers are 9:00 Beavers are masters at helping lands retain water longer, which benefits a slew of other animal species – including fish, birds and ungulates! 11:00 In Nevada, beavers started improving cattle grazing land... but their real hero moment was during a drought, when areas with beavers stayed greener longer. 14:30 Now there's just two species of beaver: North American Beaver and the Eurasian Beaver. They're different enough that they can't interbreed, but both are dam-builders 15:00 There used to be 20-odd beaver species... some dug spiral burrows into the earth, others were Pleistocene-size beavers as big as linebackers 16:00 Dam-building was a hugely advantageous skill, evolutionary-wise... it meant beavers could build their own habitat pretty much anywhere there was water 17:00 Beaver populations remained stable pre-settlement, when some indigenous cultures had ways of self-regulating harvest. The European fur trade marked the start of beaver decline 19:30 "Ecological amnesia"... when people can't remember whether or not an animal is native to a landscape 21:15 Beaver dams generally don't stop the flow of water completely. Beavers then dig channels out from the dam, dispersing water, and also giving them routes back to the dam (so they're not just chicken nuggets waddling around on land). This is the chief mechanism of how beavers turn streams into wetlands. 26:00 Water retention, water temperature, and soil health in beaver habitat 28:00 How beavers overwinter... it's brilliant 31:30 Beaver family units... they mate for life! 33:00 Adult beavers can be enormous... up to 110 pounds, especially in northern climates. (They're also a favorite food for some wolf packs.) 38:00 BDA = beaver dam analog (basically a human-constructed beaver dam to replicate the species' effect on the landscape) 39:00 Beavers and people/private lands... we have some tricks for management, like the "beaver deceiver" 41:00 Beaver presence in Nevada... it's a big of a mystery how they got there. Beaver dispersal is difficult because they're not well-adapted to moving over land 45:00 Beaver misconceptions are a huge obstacle for beaver conservation. Education is an important arm of conservation. 48:00 Beaver ponds are remarkable fire deterrent, and they're refuges for wildlife, "emerald sanctuaries" 51:00 The West has lost 60-90 percent of its natural wetlands... this has likely affected how fire behaves on the landscape 52:00 Beaver ponds = duck city! 53:45 "Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter" by Ben Goldfarb 55:00 How accurate is our perception of what a Western stream looks like? Those smooth-banked places we like to fish? They're not as natural as they look. 58:00 Find Emily @emilyfairfax on Twitter, or by email email@example.com 59:00 Emily's film on beavers and wildfires 59:30 Beaver ponds are full of pointy sticks! But they're very stable to walk across

After the Fairfax County Court unsealed the documents in Depp v. Heard, the Justice for Johnny Depp community pooled funds to help @AndreaBurkhart purchase copies of the documents newly made public. Those documents were just made available on the internet this weekend, and now there is reporting by some in the main stream media that the documents embarrassingly reveal "shocking new claims" that harm Johnny Depp's reputation, and actually help Amber Heard's case. But is that the case, really? Let's go through the reporting and discuss.

In this video, @Hoeg Law and I discuss Gone Girl and its similarities to (and differences from!) the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard case. We'll first go through the story line, then see how it compares to the facts in the trial! SUPER CHAT POLICY: We'll bring up the ones that feel relevant to the current discussion, then save the rest for the end. We'll go through them all, but only if they have to do with this discussion or the trial itself. Also, if a bunch of them build up (God bless!), we'll turn them off at a certain point so the stream doesn't get too long.
