Then, we turn our attention to a subject of longstanding mutual interest: the great German director Werner Herzog. Focusing on MY BEST FIEND (1999) and FIREBALL: VISITORS FROM DARKER WORLDS (2020), but extending far and wide, we discuss what we find great (and, occasionally, not-great) about the mighty auteur's work.

Fellow podcaster Laura Tenschert's Definitely Dylan contains multitudes of theories and insights which she shares in this eye-opening episode. German-born Laura learned English by listening to Bob, which gave her sharper ears than most. Dozens of songs are given forensic treatment, ranging from classics like Lord Protect My Child and Buckets of Rain to oddities like Fur Slippers and Dirty World. Topics covered include Dylan commenting on his creativity via his songs, where the next generation of Bob's fans will come from, his penchant for “Dad jokes” and the tight connection between To Ramona and False Prophet. Laura even manages to explain the difference between Tulsa's Bob Dylan Institute, Tulsa's Bob Dylan Archive and the Bob Dylan Centre in (yes) Tulsa. An ideal companion for anyone walkin' down the Dylan highway. Dylan scholar Laura Tenschert is the creator of Definitely Dylan, a podcast exploring the work of Bob Dylan and its relevance in our culture from a modern, feminist perspective.

The Delaware Attorney General sues a local city for passing a law that simply requires the cremation or burial of abortion children. Why? BECAUSE it will “make it more difficult and costly for pregnant persons to be able to receive lawful reproductive healthcare services.” And the Germans try to own the Nazis by scrapping a Nazi-Era law which banned doctors from giving women information about abortions. Except they're behaving kind of like Nazis. If actions speak louder than words, then these abortion-activists just told us two things: The humanity of the unborn is axiomatic and they're just like Nazis. Geez… with abortion activists like this, who needs me?

Concerns that the criminal justice system is not responsive enough to the specific needs of women are longstanding. In June 2018 the government published its Female Offender Strategy. It sought to reduce crime, pressure on services and the cost of dealing with women in the CJS, and to improve outcomes for women at all points in the system. The National Audit Office have just released a report examining the success of that strategy so far and are critical of the government's efforts in implementing it. Kate Paradine, Chief Executive of Women in Prison joins Emma. Midwives are under a ‘worrying amount' of pressure and are being ‘dangerously overworked' according to former NHS midwife, Piroska Cavell. According to a survey by the Royal College of Midwives from October 2021, over half of their members considering leaving the profession due to the current situation. Emma speaks to Piroska about her own experience of being a midwife on the front line and Royal College of Midwives' Dr Mary Ross-Davie about the challenges facing maternity services. Nineteen year old Zara Rutherford has become the youngest woman ever to fly solo around the world. Her journey spanned 5 months, 32,000 miles and five continents.

Christopher Browning’s “Ordinary Men:” The Making of a Kill Squad

Historian and author Christopher R. Browning joins Tim to talk about his study of the Holocaust and the “Final Solution” in Poland. In this episode, Christopher discusses his book, “Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland” and how a group of otherwise average, everyday men turned into one of Hitler's most prolific killing squads in World War II. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Ordinary_Men_auphonic.mp3 Long before the world heard the term “Holocaust” in connection with the Second World War, and even before the mass killing started, it all began with an atmosphere in Germany that supported the expelling of Jewish people from territories controlled by Hitler's Germany. At some point, instead of expulsion, the movement would turn into the mass executions of millions of Jews in places like Poland. Historian and author Christopher Browning wrote the landmark book on how such horrific events could take place. It's called “Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland.” To set the stage for the larger story of the book, Browning tells us how it began. This passage is part of the opening chapter that book: “Pale and nervous, with choking voice and tears in his eyes, (Major) Trapp visibly fought to control himself as he spoke. The battalion, he said plaintively, had to perform a frightfully unpleasant task. This assignment was not to his liking, indeed it was highly regrettable, but the orders came from the highest authorities. If it would make their task any easier, the men should remember that in Germany the bombs were falling on women and children. He then turned to the matter at hand. The Jews had instigated the American boycott that had damaged Germany, one policeman remembered Trapp saying. There were Jews in the village of Jozefow who were involved with the partisans, he explained according to two others. The battalion had now been ordered to round up these Jews. The male Jews of working age were to be separated and taken to a work camp. The remaining Jews – the women, children, and elderly – were to be shot on the spot by the battalion. Having explained what awaited his men, Trapp then made an extraordinary offer: if any of the older men among them did not feel up to the task that lay before him, he could step out.” These were the major's comments to the battalion of mostly middle-aged men on the morning of July 13, 1942. They weren't Nazis. They weren't even members of the German army. They made up a police battalion of working-class men too old to serve in the army. Those men would round up and shoot 1,500 Jews in that Polish village on that one day. That battalion would eventually kill upwards of 83,000 captives during the war, making it one of the most efficient German killing squads in the war. But as the title of Christopher Browning's book suggests, before the war, he says these were considered Ordinary Men.

When the Nazi Party came to power in Germany, in 1933, one of their first goals was to reshape culture by force. The Nazis organized book burnings, stormed artist studios, confiscating work they disagreed with, and fired contemporary artists from teaching positions in universities. The goal was to place limits on human expression–an ominous display for what was to come. Visit the companion gallery for this episode here: https://mjdorian.com/dangerous/ The celebrated 1800's German poet, Heinrich Heine, wrote: "where books are burned, there too, people will burn." On this episode, we explore the Degenerate Art Exhibition of 1937, otherwise known as Entartete Kunst. The intended goal of the exhibit was to insult and ridicule the featured artists and kill modern art. Making it clearly known to the German public that the Nazi Party was forbidding any form of abstraction in painting, film, sculpture, or music. The suppression or censorship of art is a symptom that something is desperately wrong in the cultural fabric of a society. What happened to the artists featured in the exhibition?

Most people think that Britain's worst moment of the war was in 1940 when the nation stood up against the threat of German invasion. Yet, eighty years ago, Britain stood at the brink of defeat. In 1942, a string of military disasters engulfed Britain in rapid succession, including the collapse in Malaya; the biggest surrender in British history at Singapore and the passing of three large German warships through the Straits of Dover in broad daylight.Taylor Downing, historian, writer and broadcaster, joins Dan on the podcast to draw the startling parallels between events in 1942 and today.

Henri Littière and his adulterous wife Suzanne thought they'd come up with a novel way to combat her philandering - by commissioning a custom-made chastity belt. But on 21st January, 1934, Littière was sentenced to three months in prison for cruelty to his spouse.It's a strange story, but not half as weird as how the myth of chastity belts gained traction in the first place - not from medieval days, but in fact thanks to Victorian prudishness.In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly pick holes in 1934 Parisian court reporting; discover the trend for 21st century chastity belts; and explain how widespread belief in the belts can be traced back to a wacky German author's offbeat sense of humour… Further Reading:• ‘FRANCE: Infibulation' (TIME, 1934): http://content.time.com/time/subscriber/article/0,33009,787768,00.html• ‘Are They Real?

A long-awaited report on how sexual abuse cases were handled in the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising between 1945 and 2019, was released today, and it accuses both Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Cardinal Reinhard Marx, one of Pope Francis' top advisers, of mishandling abuse cases. The report looks back at abuse cases spanning more than 70 years, which includes Pope Emeritus Benedict's five-year tenure as archbishop of the diocese. The lawyers accuse Benedict of mishandling four abuse cases, saying that he allowed two priests who were criminally prosecuted for abuse to continue working as priests, and that no action was taken against them under church law. Pope Emeritus Benedict denies all allegations of wrongdoing. His personal secretary responded to questions from journalists today, saying Benedict would “examine the text with the necessary attention.” Cardinal Marx, the current archbishop of Munich and Freising, is also accused of mishandling two cases of sexual abuse. He was not present at  the presentation of the document, but said he watched the livestream. In a statement a few hours later, Cardinal Marx asked for forgiveness and said that while the report is important for coming to terms with the past, the priority should be on care for the victims. He said that the diocese would carefully study the report and discern a way forward. A Vatican spokesman told journalists today that the Vatican would study the almost 1,900-page report, which detailed the cases of 497 victims and 235 abusers. The spokesman said “The Holy See believes it has an obligation to give serious attention to the document” and reiterated the Vatican's sense of shame and remorse for the abuse of minors by clerics and its commitment to ensuring safe environments for young people.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 20th January. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. Welcome to a new Patreon Executive Producer KESTER SANDBACH NIO OPENS THEIR FIRST SWAPPING STATION OUTSIDE OF CHINA - NIO did open their first Power Swap Station (PSS) outside of China at Lier close to Drammen in Norway today. Nio says that the station will make it possible to replace the battery in NIO's cars with a charged one in five minutes and is, therefore, an alternative to spending time charging the car. PSS is also part of NIO's investment in Battery as to Service (BaaS) and an essential part of NIO's goal of separating electric cars and batteries. You buy the car you want, and then rent or buy the battery suiting you best at the moment. - The station will replace the battery in all NIO's models. The first NIO model to find its way to Norway is the big SUV ES8, launched here in the autumn of 2021. - I think the combination of battery swapping and Battery as a Service is the most significant benefit of technology here in Norway. For everyday use, you can manage with a small battery in the car, and then it is possible the swap to a larger battery when going for longer journeys or in periods of more intense use of the car. - Another benefit of battery swapping is to reduce the "battery anxiety" many experiences when going electric. Batteries are an expensive part of the car, 15-20 % of total cost, NIO says, and the development is going fast. By renting the battery, it is possible to reduce the risk and easily upgrade to a more modern battery as they develop. - Many of the cars they sell today will be on the road in 15 years. Thanks to Battery Swap, they will always have the latest battery technology.

The model was not designed for high volumes and selling it with discounts was not profitable, according to German press reports. - "We had temporarily taken the e-Up off the market in 2020 because delivery times had risen dramatically due to high demand," VW said in an emailed statement to German IT news website Golem. "Now it has been decided to reintroduce the e-Up into the order program." - The electric car rental company Nextmove said the e-Up in the "Style Plus" version is about to make a comeback with a list price of about 26,500 euros ($30,000) and a range of roughly 250 km (155 miles). The final customer price would be around 17,000 euros after government incentives offered in Germany.

It is specified with a WLTP range of 498 kilometres. According to Porsche, this is possible thanks to some further developments in the drive system. In the “Normal” and “Range” driving modes, the front electric motor is almost completely disconnected and de-energised in the partial load range – and this more efficiently than before. Thermal management and charging functions have also been improved. All in all, the 4S can keep drag losses low compared to the rear-wheel-drive car, but recuperate more energy via the front axle during deceleration.

The startup will be teaming up with facility solutions provider ABM to supply its new IQ 200 Level 2 chargers to GM. - There are no target charging station amounts for this agreement, nor is there a date for widespread deployment, because the purchase and installation are on a dealer-by-dealer basis. So far, Blink has seen “nearly 1,000 orders from GM dealers totaling 1,505 EV chargers,” according to a spokesperson for the company. - Blink's IQ 200 chargers are designed for fleets and built with local load management that can allow for up to 20 chargers on a single shared circuit without overwhelming the power grid.

The deadline is forcing automakers to quickly transform their factories and supply chains in order to meet the new government regulations. He had previously promised not to shut down any European plants, but he also noted that Stellantis would "need to remain competitive" in the recent interview. - Tavares also noted that there are better ways to reduce carbon emissions that are cheaper and faster than transitioning to electric vehicles. Tavares said that an EV would need to drive 43,000 miles (70,000 kilometers) to begin compensating for its carbon footprint. Light hybrid vehicles could significantly reduce carbon emissions while being cheaper for customers to buy and for automakers to design and manufacture.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Penny and Sparrow over Zoom video!  “Olly olly oxen free!” If you ever played hide-and-go-seek or capture the flag growing up, odds are good that you've shouted these words into the hot summer night, beckoning your unseen comrades out of their hiding places in exchange for safe passage home. But what does it actually mean? The origins of the phrase are murky, with variations existing in multiple languages over the centuries. Some trace it back to the German “alle, alle, auch sind frei,” which roughly translates to “all, all, also are free.” Others attribute it to a mix of French and Dutch, which would yield the similar “go, go, come in free.” For Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke—the musical duo better known as Penny and Sparrow—the phrase spoke to something far deeper than a children's game, though, something profoundly existential.Written and recorded over the past year, Olly Olly is a work of liberation and revelation, a full-throated embrace of the self from a band that's committed to leaving no stone unturned in their tireless quest for actualization. The songs here are fearless and introspective, embracing growth and change as they reckon with desire, intimacy, doubt, and regret, and the arrangements are similarly bold and thoughtful, augmenting the duo's rich, hypnotic brand of chamber folk with electronic flourishes and R&B grooves. Baxter and Jahnke produced Olly Olly themselves, working on their own without an outside collaborator for the first time, and the result is the purest, most authentic act of artistic self-expression the pair have ever achieved.   Stuck at home with nothing but time on his hands, Jahnke leaned into bedroom pop, R&B, and hip-hop for sonic inspiration, pushing his boundaries in an attempt to forge new sounds that went against expectations. There was a certain amount of contrarianism at play (tell him you can't write a folk song over a trap beat and he'd write you a folk song over a trap beat), but more than that, Jahnke was engaged in a conscious attempt to rewrite his own neural pathways, to step out of the invisible boxes that had bound him for much of his life. Baxter took a similar approach within his lyrics, which he worked on at home in Florence, AL, responding to Jahnke's melodic cues by writing with new tones and modes of voice. In the end, that's what Olly Olly is all about: finding new ways to use language and melody as acts of emancipation and self-discovery.We want to hear from you!

THE THESIS: Perseverance is at the heart of the history of God's pursuit of reuniting His family. At the center of a the work of the Lord Jesus is perseverance, even unto death and resurrection. All of His apostles got to persevere—yes, the got to!—as their duty, honor and joy at following the Our Savior. Too much of the American Christian church has become luke warm and lazy; it has become the polite boy friend-zoned by the woman he is to marry. The church that offended both Rome and the Jews, the pagans and the gentiles, has become a beige wall of smiling faces in the crowd of the world. Now, as America is under attack, American Christians have been gifted with a time such as this to truly experience faith, to boldly use this faith and to splash the colors of truth and grace on the walls of a world where the enemy is taking captive our neighbors through empty, deceitful promises.  THE SCRIPTURE:  Hebrews 6: 12 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. Hebrews 12: 3  3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

This week's episode on The Red Light Report is the grand finale of the three-part solosode series about light and its influence on the "energetic portion" of our eyes. This rather old, yet profound information, comes from the research of German ophthalmologist Fritz Hollwich and other studies he collected from the late 1800s through the 1970s in his book, The Influence of Ocular Light Perception on Metabolism in Man and in Animal.We covered the following topics in last week's episode: light and body temperature, light and kidney function, light and blood count and light and metabolic functions. The research in these areas leave no doubt that we all possess another pathway in our eyes that leads to downstream effects in our physiology, for better and, certainly, for worse.This week, we will be learning the following topics: light and thyroid function, light and sexual function, light and adrenal and pituitary functions, natural sunlight and artificial fluorescent light, light pollution, and the importance of light in metabolism in man and animal: summary. The last three sections are of utmost importance and by far have the most applicable take-home points of this entire solosode series.While this information may be "old," given the book was published in 1979, it has never been more timely and relevant than now with our illuminated modern-day lifestyles. Ever since 1879, when Edison invented the lightbulb, the pendulum has been constantly swinging to the other side. And while there have been many advancements and benefits directly because of the lightbulb, virtually every aspect of our biology has paid the preverbal price.Fritz Hollwich was very aware of the fact that our lighting environments taxed our health -- even over 80 years ago! And thanks to him, we know definitively that the window into our eyes tells the entire story. - Dr. Mike Belkowski discusses the following: Light and thyroid function Research done on ducks with red light to the eyes Research on mice and rabbits in light Light and sexual function The sexual function in starlings and jays - being exposed to red light at night Testosterone production in males The importance of light entering the energetic portion of your eye How light stimulates gonadal activity Research on how red light stimulates testicular development Research on how light and temperature control increases egg production in birds How you can determine the sex of your dog by the lighting conditions Increase in oxytocin due to increased light exposure How light affects the growth of deer antlers Light and adrenal and petuitary functions Natural light and artificial fluorescent light How all organisms are affected by the day/ night sequence How too much artificial light leads to pathological changes in the organism The monotony of artificial lighting How natural sunlight balances our stress hormones How we were raised through evolution by full-spectrum sunlight Light pollution and the importance of light and metabolism in man and animal - To learn more about red light therapy and shop for the highest-quality red light therapy products, visit www.biolight.shop - Stay up-to-date on social media: Instagram YouTube Facebook

Hello and welcome to Season 3 of the History of the Germans Podcast - The Hohenstaufen 1125-1268. Between March and June of 1977 675,000 people visited the Alte Schloß in Stuttgart to see an exhibition entitled “Die Zeit der Staufer” (the Time of the Hohenstaufen in English). Over 1,000 items from 17 countries were on display, with the Cappenberger Kopf, the image of emperor Frederick Barbarossa, this episode's artwork as its star exhibit. Nobody expected these numbers of visitors for what was just 3,000 square meters of exhibition space. At peak times there was barely a square meter per person. People fainted in the low and badly ventilated rooms. They sold 150,000 copies of the enormous four volume exhibition catalogue, one of which to my father who proudly displayed it in his office for 40 years and is now in a box en route over to mine. Whilst most other medieval German rulers are all but forgotten, interest in the Hohenstaufen never completely disappeared. Why is that? They were by no means the most successful emperors, that crown has to go the Ottonians nor was their reign the most fateful, that was the reign of the later Salians. Frederick Barbarossa and his grandson Frederick II have been such fascinating personalities that almost any age could project their own perceptions and expectations onto them, from champion of national unity to modern man before his time. Time to find out what really happened, who they really were. As always a great many things keep happening, some good, some bad.

The U.S. 10-year yield jumped to 1.865%, the highest it's been since January 2020, and the German 10-year bund moved to within one basis point of turning positive for the first time since 2019. U.S. equity indexes were off nearly 2%, while European stocks fell about 1%. The CBOE Volatility Index (known as the “fear gauge”) surged as much as 20% intraday.

A German bank employee was in the middle of transferring 62.40 euros from a customer’s bank account when he accidentally took a power nap at his desk. He dozed off while his finger was on the "2" key, resulting in a 222 million euro (300 million dollars) transfer into the customer’s account. The fallout from the mistake included the firing of the employee’s colleague who verified the transfer. Although the mistake was caught and corrected, because he wasn’t watchful, the sleepy employee’s lapse almost became a nightmare for the bank. Jesus warned His disciples that if they didn’t remain alert, they, too, would make a costly mistake. He took them to a place called Gethsemane to spend some time in prayer. As He prayed, Jesus experienced a grief and sadness such as He’d never known in His earthly life. He asked Peter, James and John to stay awake to pray and “keep watch” with Him (Matthew 26:38), but they fell asleep (vv. 40–41). Their failure to watch and pray would leave them defenseless when the real temptation of denying Him came calling. In the hour of Jesus’ greatest need, the disciples lacked spiritual vigilance. May we heed Jesus’ words to remain spiritually awake by being more devoted to spending time with Him in prayer. As we do, He’ll strengthen us to resist all kinds of temptations and avoid the costly mistake of denying Jesus.
