The English language is constantly growing and evolving, and so is our usage of that language. We don't refer to people with mental illness as “lunatics” anymore. At least we shouldn't. But there was a time when that was a commonly accepted term.Even language that we think to be more enlightened can fall out of favor. Person-first terminology has become popular in recent years. That's where you don't say “Tom has depression.” You say, “Tom is a person with depression,” in an effort to convey that Tom is a person above anything else. But the person-first has detractors as well, who argue, among other things, that one's personhood shouldn't require reiteration and that doing so could call it into question.We're joined by Helen Zaltzman noted wordsmith and host of The Allusionist podcast.

How Language Made Us Human'. 13:00 Animal sounds vs. human language. Simon's theory of the key to and origins of language: the “digitisation of noise.” 17:25 The evidence for Simon's theory. 22:07 Nature and language as digital; an analogy with DNA and evo devo. 26:04 The revolutionary power of language for humanity. Iona reads from Simon's book—language as an act of transportation, both connecting us with others and distancing us from the immediate basis of experience. Plus: the dangers of being trapped by language (“the trap of identity”, “the trap of culture”, etc.) and a Babylonian diversion. 37:27 Japanese enka music and Jero, the black American enka singer: a cautionary tale against feeling one's culture is special and unique. This is true at the individual level, too. This is an illusion caused by language. Further discussion and examples of this illusion and how it (sometimes dangerously) misleads and divides us. The artificiality of culture: our natures are all calibration, stemming from language and culture. Simon's Japanese experience. 49:48 Simon's views on the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis (linguistic relativity). 55:01 The power of music and its (lack of?) relation to language. Did language drive the growth of the brain? 1:04:36 Do books offer a kind of vicarious experience? Can we really communicate experience and thought to others via language? Is the world headed in the direction of a universal culture (but not a monoculture!)? 1:07:06 Using language and argument instead of violence. Is democracy an evolutionarily stable strategy? How do we apply this at the global level, not just the national level? Why the United Nations fails at this. 1:14:04 Last words and outro.

Poetry is all about the sound of words. That's why Homer's epic verses are meant to be read aloud. Poetry recitals are gaining in popularity. Audiences love the sound of words and sentences performed with feeling and power. At South Mimms we're encouraging Slam Poets to strut their rhymes in public. We're also deploying gerund-breaking technology (a linguist's pun) to turn what sounds like innocent infant gurgling into resonant poetry. Don't believe it? Have a listen.

Eurovision is first and foremost a songwriting contest and language plays a huge part in that. Should the song be in English? The countries native language or maybe a mix of the two? Rat joins me on this episode to talk about Norway's 2019 entry Spirit in the Sky by Keiino, jojking, and linguistics. Does adding an ethnic slant to the song through a native language, give it a leg up in the popular vote? Note: Norway grabbed 291 votes from the public, 30 points more than the winner Duncan Lawrence. Track listing: Keiino - A Spirit in the Sky (Norway: 2019) Jamala - 1944 (Ukraine: 2016) In Corpore Sano - Konstrakta (Serbia: 2019) Soldi - Mahmood (Italy: 2019) Finding Eurovision is a 7-part podcast series about the Eurovision Song Contest and the music from a group of friends who watch it. #findingesc
We are fighting, not just for New Yorkers, but for ALL Americans!If Quarantine Facilities can happen in New York, they can happen everywhere.If we win this lawsuit, citizens across the United States will win.The citizens' group, Uniting NYS, has teamed up with a group of NYS Legislators, and together they are suing New York Governor Kathy Hochul, DOH Commissioner Bassett, the Department of Health, and the Public Health & Health Planning Council over their illegal forced “Isolation and Quarantine” regulation!Uniting NYS is proud to be standing together with Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, and Assemblyman Chris Tague in their pursuit of justice. These legislators are true leaders.A brilliant Amicus Brief has been filed by Assemblymen Andy Goodell, Joe Giglio, and Minority Leader Will Barclay in support of this historic lawsuit against the Governor.The Regulation being challenged:10 NYCRR 2.13 “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures”Allows the DOH to pick and choose who they want to force to isolate or quarantine, without proof that the person poses a health threat, for however long the DOH wishes to force the quarantine, and at a location that the DOH deems appropriate (which can include a quarantine “facility” or detention center).They do not need to prove that you are actually sick. They can just suspect that you MIGHT be harboring a communicable disease.There is no age restriction, so they can force you, or your child, or your elderly parent/grandparent into isolation or quarantine, for however long they want!It is the antithesis of what our country stands for, so this must be stopped!You can read the full text of the regulation here: https://regs.health.ny.gov/volume-title-10/content/section-213-isolation-and-quarantine-proceduresGet details about the lawsuit and case status at: www.UnitingNYS.com/lawsuitGet involved with the lawsuit and/or sign up for weekly updates at: www.UnitingNYS.comAttorney Bobbie Anne Flower Cox is doing this lawsuit PRO BONO, which means she is not getting paid.

Have you ever wondered why word meanings change over time? Or why do people say words differently based on where they live? This is called Linguistic Evolution and we dive into this on Leap of Fate pod 93 with Valerie Fridland, who has a Ph.D. in Linguistics and teaches at the University of Nevada Reno.Linguistics is the scientific study of language. Linguists (experts in linguistics) work on specific languages, but their primary goal is to understand the nature of language in general and how they are related or have changed over time. The main goal of linguistics, like all other intellectual disciplines, is to increase our knowledge and understanding of the world. Valerie educates Leap of Fate this week through how words change over time. Our engaging conversation ranges from her research studying words to understanding how words such as "woke", "redskin", "cap, and no cap" and more have come to be and changed over time.Use this podcast to learn how words evolve over time as it's important to be cognizant of the words you choose to say. There may be hidden or historical meaning you aren't aware of that can create distress for others.

MLOps Coffee Sessions #95 with Ciro Greco, MLOps as Tool to Shape Team and Culture. // Abstract Good MLOps practices are a way to operationalize a more “vertical” practice and blur the boundaries between different stages of “production-ready”. Sometimes you have this idea that production-ready means global availability but with ML products that need to be constantly tested against real-world data, we believe production-ready should be a continuum and that the key person that drives that needs to be the data scientist or the ML engineer. // Bio Ciro Greco, VP of AI at Coveo.

Noam Chomsky is "arguably the most important intellectual alive," the founder of modern linguistics, one of the most cited scholars in history, and the author of over 100 books. He is currently laureate professor at the University of Arizona and professor emeritus in the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. He recently co-authored the book Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance and is soon to release The Withdrawal: Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and the Fragility of U.S. Power.Prof. Chomsky is one of the foremost experts on U.S. foreign policy, and today we discuss one of the most serious imaginable topics: the threat of world war and the path to reducing the threat of nuclear weapons. We begin by discussing the Hiroshima bombing and the dawn of the nuclear age, before discussing the present escalating tension with Russia and the means by which the U.S. can maintain peace and avoid a catastrophic global conflict. We also discuss the ways that Americans avoid confronting the suffering inflicted by their country on others around the world, the stories that the powerful tell themselves to rationalize atrocities, and the common thread running through Chomsky's work on foreign policy: an insistence that the U.S. confront the truth about its actions and that our moral condemnation of our enemies' crimes be matched with an equally intense scrutiny of our own. No topic could be more important than the threat of global warfare, and nobody in the world is more knowledgable about it. It is a great privilege to welcome Prof. Chomsky back to the Current Affairs podcast for this vital conversation. The books on the British empire that Prof. Chomsky cites are Legacy of Violence by Caroline Elkins and Inglorious Empire by Shashi Tharoor.The 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident is discussed here.The Daniel Ellsberg anecdote that Nathan cites at the beginning is from The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner.The interview Prof. Chomsky cites with veteran diplomat Chas Freeman is here.The interview in which Carter national security advisor Zbignew Brzezinski discusses the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan is here. In it, he says: "We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would [...] Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter, essentially: “We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war." Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war that was unsustainable for the regime, a conflict that bought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire."

McCalla was born in Atlanta, Georgia to a Catholic family on her mother's side and with Jewish heritage on her father's. Though she attended Catholic school until high school, she turned to the occult at an early age, beginning her studies on witchcraft and tarot at the early age of 15. McCalla left Atlanta for New Orleans to attend college at Loyola University, where she graduated with honours in Philosophy and World Religions with a concentration in Buddhism and its implications on language. Studying Buddhist philosophy and Chinese linguistics gave McCalla a unique perspective into language use as depicted by pictorial symbols, as opposed to the phonetic style of the west. This perspective involves an understanding of each pictorial symbol as holding multiple layers of meanings, and the ability to be able to hold all those meanings in one's mind, so as to map out a full four dimensional picture out of these two dimensional shapes. During her Downtime in college McCalla began delving deeper into the more formal realms of occult studies, beginning her study of the Jewish kabbalah and mysticism with vigour. Upon graduation, she was more than happy to turn her attention to these studies, along with those of traditional witchcraft, full time. She currently practices a flavour of witchcraft that flawlessly blends her studies on philosophy, folklore, and linguistic arts into a fusion of animism, theurgy, and kabbalistic as well as astrological study. In the Plus show we discuss aesthetics and art is juxtaposed with magic and pull that thread into ideas around Tiphereth and explore the concept of living in joy. McCalla also discusses Saturn in further details. An illuminating and engaging conversation!

Chinese is one of the oldest still-spoken languages in the world. But when technologies arrived like telegraphy and computing, designed with the Roman alphabet in mind, if Chinese wanted to be able to participate then it had to choose between adapting, or paying a heavy price. And sometimes both were inevitable. Jing Tsu, author of Kingdom of Characters: the Language Revolution that Made China Modern, recounts how Chinese contended with obstacles like alphabetisation, Romanisation and standardisation.

In Speaking of Race: Language, Identity, and Schooling Among African American Children (Lexington Books, 2020), Jennifer Delfino explores the linguistic practices of African American children in an after school program in Washington, DC. Drawing on ethnographic research, Delfino illustrates how students' linguistic practices are often perceived as barriers to learning and achievement and provides an in-depth look at how students challenge this perception by using language to transform the meaning of race in relation to ideas about academic success. Jennifer Delfino is assistant professor in the Department of Academic Literacy and Linguistics at Borough of Manhattan Community College, The City University of New York. Schneur Zalman Newfield is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Borough of Manhattan Community College, City University of New York, and the author of Degrees of Separation: Identity Formation While Leaving Ultra-Orthodox Judaism (Temple University Press, 2020).

Hans Asperger would have been merely "a footnote in the history of autism", so why did he get to be the eponym in Asperger's syndrome? Because along with the usual problems medical eponyms pose, and his work not really earning him the honour, he collaborated with Nazis and sent children to a hospital where they would be experimented on and even killed. Activist, writer and academic Morénike Giwa Onaiwu discusses the stigma around terms like Asperger's syndrome and autism, and historian Edith Sheffer talks about Hans Asperger and child psychiatry in Nazi Vienna. Content notes: Nazis, eugenics, ableism, child abuse, murder. There are two versions of this episode. The content is the same, but this version contains background music; if you would prefer one with no music, you can get it right next to where you obtained this one.
