After pro-Palestinian protestors glued themselves to the street during the Thanksgiving Day's Macy Parade it's not as absurd as it sounds... especially given the fact that since the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, the Palestinians have show an almost supernatural ability to make the worst possible impression on world opinion.

The wealthy elites pushing the climate agenda are facing rounds of criticism online, after a video emerged showing their private jets frozen on a runway in Munich allegedly as some were heading to a climate change summit currently being held in Dubai. This happens as new data suggest the richest one percent in the world generate as much carbon emissions as the poorest two-thirds of the world's population combined. And this is sparking a broader debate on why it seems the people ironically most responsible for climate change (if we believe the hypothesis) are also the ones lecturing us the most.

What you'll learn in this episode: How Esther's experiences in China and India continue to influence her work today Why different materials have different meanings, and how that impacts the wearer Why the relationship between a jewelry artist and a customer is particularly special and intimate How wearing jewelry influences the way we move through the world The most important qualities a jewelry teacher should have About Esther Brinkmann Esther Brinkmann is an independent jewelry maker living and working in Switzerland. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the world and is held in the collections of the National Museum of Switzerland, Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Museo Internazionale delle Arti Applicate Oggi (MIAAO) in Torino, and the V&A in London. She established the Haute École d'Art et de Design (HEAD) in Geneva, the first jewelry education program of its kind in the country. Additional Resources: Esther's Website Esther's Instagram Photos Available on TheJewelryJourney.com Transcript: Jewelry artist Esther Brinkmann makes her rings with intention, considering everything from the meaning of the material used to the way the shape of the ring will change how the wearer moves their hands. She has passed this perspective down to hundreds of students at the Haute École d'Art et de Design (HEAD), the jewelry program she founded in Geneva. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about how living in China and India made her question her identity and influenced her work; why many of her rings are designed to fit different sized hands; and what makes the relationship between artist and wearer so special. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the second part of a two-part episode. If you haven't heard part one, please head to TheJewelryJourney.com. I recently went to Switzerland with Art Jewelry Forum. One of the afternoons we had was at Esther Brinkmann's home. It was a very memorable lunch and afternoon. We got to see her studio, and on top of that, we had an unforgettable luncheon cooked by her husband, Warner. Welcome back. Do you think you were taken by the design, the motifs and everything, because you're a designer? For instance, would I be taken by it? Esther: You would be marveled by all these beautiful things, and you would love to buy these things, but maybe you would not have the desire to do your own designs, whereas I immediately got the desire to introduce these new inspirations. I was really stimulated to introduce these things in my own designs and to evolve to develop new ideas. Sharon: For those of us that were interested in the enamel rings, I think you said we had to be careful if we dropped them or banged them. They were like glass. Esther: Yeah, enamel is a glass-like material. It certainly it is not the best idea to make rings with enamel, but I could not resist. As I love rings, I just had to do a few of those rings. This was a period when I did realize maybe 20 of those rings, but they are difficult to sell because they are difficult to wear. You have deal with them very carefully. Sharon: What other jewelry did you make while you were there? Esther: In India, besides these enamel rings, besides this collaboration, I also started to do pieces with some stones. I discovered, for instance, the polki diamond in India. You can find it only in India. It's a diamond; let's say it is not the best quality. It's a piece of diamond with many, many cracks. They split it into very thin plates, very roughly faceted, not as we have the idea of a diamond with many, many facets. It is a very flat stone with a lot of cracks. It looks like broken ice or something like that. I love this kind of diamond. I started to make rings with that. I also started to purchase a number of not very precious stones, like peridots or topaz, etc. I started to introduce stones as a color element in rings especially. Sharon: They call them polki diamonds? How would you spell that? Esther: P-O-L-K-I. This might be the Hindi word for this specific diamond, but when you put it on Google, you can find it. Sharon: That's interesting. From what you're describing, it's what we consider Indian diamonds. Along with the monograph that was put out by Arnoldsche for some of your exhibits, you also have a book that just came out about your jewelry. Esther: Yes. Sharon: A lot of it describes jewelry provoking feelings or provoking people. Could you talk about that a little? How do you see it provoking people? Esther: I think this is the main reason why I am so interested in jewelry, because jewelry is something I create. I make a piece that has a relationship to a body, to a person. I don't know who the person wearing my piece will be. That depends on my practice. I work with galleries, but I create a piece with the idea that another person will choose it, and this person will wear it. This person will be like an ambassador of what I have created. This person will adopt what I have created for herself. She or he will wear it and show it, will translate it to others around her or him. That is a very special thing, a very special relationship between an artist and a customer or a collector. When you buy a sculpture, the sculpture will have a relationship to a space, to your garden or your living room, but a piece of jewelry is something very intimate. When a collector buys something I have created, it's not mine anymore. I am absolutely comfortable and very at ease with this idea, to give this away. What I know and what makes it so rich is that this person will adopt something and use it as an intimate mirror of her thoughts, of her emotions, of her mind, of her attitude. I think this is a very special thing. The piece of jewelry influences our gestures, especially the big rings. They influence our gestures. They influence our body language. We experience our body in a different way when we wear a piece of jewelry. Sharon: Any piece or are you talking about larger, significant pieces? Esther: No, any piece, any. I'm talking now about any piece. Sharon: Oh, wow! That's something to think about. You mentioned that you make the rings in gold and jade and silver. Do they have different meanings, the different materials? Esther: Absolutely. I think any material has its own meaning. Of course, gold, silver and jade are so-called precious materials. They are considered by everybody as precious. I like them not because they are considered precious worldwide, but I like to work with them because of other qualities. For instance, gold and silver are very plastic materials. You can hammer volumes out of a flat sheet of gold or silver. You cannot do this with a simple hammer and iron, for instance, but gold and silver have these plastic qualities. Then, of course, the color is a very important aspect. The weight of silver is very tender. Yellow gold is much stronger. I also know that silver is linked in many, many cultures to the moon and the feminine, and gold is linked to the sun and to the male aspect in us. Whether we know it or not, it is like an ancestral knowing that is within us and that we can feel. That's also why different people are attracted by different materials. Not everybody likes to wear gold. Not everybody is able to have a big ring made of gold because it's a statement you make. Sharon: Do you think you're influenced in these thoughts by your living abroad or living in different cultures? Esther: I think so, yes. Of course, I learned a lot. For instance, jade has a strong symbolic meaning in China and for the Chinese culture. It's a very strong material, which we may not understand immediately, only if we learn about it. I think living in other areas of the world, you become sensitive to how different materials are used. As a person who likes to transform material into something, into an object, or to transform very simple materials like a thread or a string into something precious, into something which has a specific character, it gives you another relationship to different materials. I choose my materials very consciously by what I want to transmit as a feeling. Sharon: Would you call yourself a jeweler? Esther: Yes, absolutely. I'm a jewelry maker, yes. Sharon: I guess a jewelry maker is different than a jeweler. I have my own understanding of what a jeweler is. You're a jewelry maker. Esther: I have to say English is not my language. I might not make the difference between jeweler and jewelry maker. I know the difference between a jewelry maker and a designer. I'm not a designer because I make things myself. I create and I make. I realize things myself. So, I'm not a designer. I don't consider myself a designer. Sharon: What possessed you to start a whole department in Geneva, a jewelry department at the university there? Esther: That was a very happy, glad circumstance. It was in the beginning of 1980. Switzerland joined the European Space for Higher Education. Art schools and schools for applied arts were things then, not universities. They had no universities for art. In the beginning of 1980, we joined the European Space for Higher Education. At the school where I studied between 1974 and 1978, and where I started to teach in 1982, we, the teachers, were asked to make a proposal for a new education program. At that time, I was already very active as an independent jewelry maker. I could participate in international exhibitions, and I absolutely wanted to open a department for experimental and art jewelry in Geneva because we didn't have that. We had this excellent program for luxury jewelry. That is what I learned. For four years, I had this education for luxury jewelry, and I thought it was the time in Switzerland, and especially in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. In this very luxurious environment, we needed something breaking this up. This is another idea of what luxury can be. It's not only luxury and precious metals and very expensive stones; it can be something very different. That is the environment where I could start this jewelry design department at the school in Geneva, which is now called the School for Applied Arts, which has the same status as a university. Sharon: As a university, did you first study basic university courses? Esther: I was never in a university. I just knew them from my colleagues I met when we exhibited. I knew the Rietveld Academy. I knew the RCA in London. I knew Otto Künzli in Munich. I had this dream of doing something like that in Geneva, and I was given the opportunity and the confidence to start and create this department. It was a very lucky situation. I am a very lucky person in general. Sharon: Well, you must be a good teacher because there are people all over that I met who said, “Oh, I studied with Esther Brinkmann.” You must be a good teacher. They wouldn't have chosen this, would they? Esther: I'm very much able to transmit my passion. I'm also able to support young people to find their own way, to express ideas, to find their own materials and, maybe the most important, to find the energy to develop and to not give up, to stay with an idea and to follow your intuition, to give you the skills and the force to realize something until satisfaction. This is a very, very important thing. Everybody has ideas; everybody can have excellent ideas, but you have to have the energy and the endurance to follow your way and follow your idea until materializing something to achieve a piece. That is something you need support for. I think that is a very important thing the teacher has to give, to transmit to her students. Sharon: Was there a competition or was there stress in choosing you? Were they going to choose somebody for this position? Esther: No, there was nobody. There were different people to propose different programs. I had a colleague who also proposed a program for watch design. We had a very small department for watch design open at that time, but nothing in the field of creative jewelry. Sharon: Creative jewelry being contemporary too? Esther: Yes, being contemporary jewelry. Sharon: Tell us about the Magpies. We'll finish with that. What about the Magpies? Esther: I met the Magpies more or less at the same period. I met Theresa, who was the founder of this club called the Magpies. It was a small group of friends, of women. They were just fond of jewelry, although not of contemporary jewelry at that time. Two or three of them were involved in archaeology. They were fond of tribal jewelry, of jewelry from the Middle East. They were just interested in jewelry. When I met them, I could introduce them to contemporary jewelry. Since then, they were very supportive of my students as a group of women who were just enthusiastic and following what we were doing and also, of course, buying work, which is always very important. That's how we kept going in parallel together until now. What happened is that I would say in the last 15 years, this group has become less and less active because the women are getting elderly. They stopped organizing activities. Only recently a group of younger people are starting this group of collectors again and trying to organize activities around this topic. It depends always on people and privileged relationships that we can have with collectors, but also galleries. It's the same with students. People can stimulate each other to excellence, to create things and to do activities which they would not do when they are alone. Sharon: Do you see that happening with Magpies? Do these stimulate? Esther: The fact that we were friends and that I could include them in our activities at the department, I think that was a very stimulating period of time for them. Somehow with my successors, it did not happen in that same way. But it seems that now, with the new generation at the school in Geneva, they are trying again to create this link and this relationship with collectors. They might succeed. I think so. It's about transmitting your passion, and it's about exchanging ideas. It's about generosity from one part, and the other that makes things can make things happen. Sharon: You certainly have made things happen. Thank you for being with us today. I greatly, greatly appreciate it. Esther: Thank you for having me, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about all this. Thanks. Sharon: We will have photos posted on the website. Please head to TheJewelryJourney.com to check them out. Thank you again for listening. Please leave us a rating and review so we can help others start their own jewelry journey.

On Season 4, Episode 7, Emily sits down with artist Jenna Gribbon, in her studio in Brooklyn, NY. Brooklyn-based painter Jenna Gribbon's figurative canvases present tender, uncanny scenes of everyday life while challenging the art historical conventions of the gaze. Gribbon reckons with the patrilineage of her medium, upending the tropes—such as the artist-muse relationship—and the established approaches that she inherited. She reconceives the act of looking as a reciprocal one, marked by empathy and mutual gratification. Utilizing the alla prima technique with a precise and animated hand, she offers unguarded glimpses into her life with her wife, the musician Mackenzie Scott, as well as her young son and circle of friends. She often depicts moments that push the limits of public and private, agency and consent, and exhibition and exploitation. Painting with an acute awareness of the viewer, Gribbon plays with the voyeuristic impulse while bringing visibility to expressions of sapphic love. Born in 1978 in Knoxville, Tennessee, Gribbon studied painting at the University of Georgia (2001) and received her MFA from Hunter College (2019). In 2011, in Long Island City, Gribbon co-founded the Oracle Club, a literary salon and creative space. Gribbon's work has been presented in exhibitions at the Frick Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw; Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, Florida; Kurpfälzisches Museum, Heidelberg, Germany; Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Munich; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; Georgia Museum of Contemporary Art, Atlanta; and the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, among many others. Her paintings reside in the collections of X Museum, Beijing; Dallas Museum of Art; Rubell Family Collection, Miami; Brant Foundation, New York; and FLAG Art Foundation, New York. theartcareer.com Jenna Gribbon: @jennabribbon Follow us: @theartcareer Podcast host: @emilymcelwreath_art Editing: @benjamin.galloway

On this week's main show Manu and Stefan are once again joined by the Athletic's Seb Stafford-Bloor to push to one side a rather boring 1-0 win for Bayern Munich against FC Köln to instead discuss whether Harry Kane is already a better striker for the Munich club than Robert Lewandowski ever was. The trio then breakdown Borussia Dortmund's dramatic 4-2 win over the Foals and whether or not is has convinced anyone that Edin Terzic is still the right man for the job at the Westfalenstadion. Then, to wrap up the show, Seb fill us in on his recent interview with Heidenheim head coach Frank Schmidt. Enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed the last episode. I thought it would be interesting, for my German listeners, to hear Thomas directly. You can get an idea of his relationship with his mother, and his understanding of the Bible, at such a young age. Then, I also know, that some of you understand and speak German, because you learned it when you lived at the Trudering house. So this was a little challenge, to refresh your language skills, and perhaps your memories of Thomas. My granddaughter, that was born after he passed away, said she feels like she is getting to know him through the podcast. How cool is that! I told her that I too, have gotten to know other sides of him, that I wasn't aware in those days. I am still learning today, from his example! Since I started telling our story of moving to Munich, I keep discovering through letters and tapes, more details about how the Lord was leading the circumstances. It was such a leap of faith that brought us into a whole new world of opportunities. Like I explained to Caitlin in our past video conversation, Thomas and I were not driven by our own ambitions, but by a desire to fulfill the mission that the Lord had given us. Soon after we came to Munich, God opened the door for a job to Thomas, that was suited to the music education he had grown up with. He didn't even have an official graduation diploma, from the high school, which is called “Gymnasium”.
La noche del 8 de noviembre de 1923 es posiblemente la más significativa y transformadora de la historia del siglo XX. Un levantamiento localizado en Munich, la capital bávara, liderado por un hombre pequeño con bigote como cepillo de dientes y una grandilocuencia venenosa pero convincente, tendría repercusiones que conducirían al encadenamiento político de una nación entera, a los crímenes más abominables del siglo y a una guerra Mundial. Se podría decir que Adolf Hitler alcanzó la mayoría de edad entre el olor a sudor y aserrín de una cervecería de Munich. En el caos político de 1923, fue un irritante local, ganando popularidad entre trabajadores y soldados, y el espíritu de su Partido Nazi se propagó como un virus. Su primer intento de alcanzar el verdadero poder se produjo con un intento de golpe de Estado contra el gobierno ya separatista de Baviera, que lo dejó en prisión. El documental narra la apasionante historia de cómo una noche turbulenta cambió el mundo. Esta es la historia en un microcosmos, con la tensión de un thriller y repercusiones que resuenan hasta el día de hoy. Una noche que terminó en fracaso y desorden se convirtió en la piedra angular de una revolución que le daría a este agitador radical el poder supremo.

You might have heard of Sgt Pepper, but probably not of his wartime prisoner-of-war escape! Escaping from a working camp attached to the largest POW camp of the war, he chose to remain in Munich for two years, working on behalf of an underground anti-Nazi movement, operating in the birthplace of Nazism. A truly remarkable escape story! For You The War Is Over is a podcast, hosted by Dave Robertson and Tony Hoskins, which looks at the real life stories of Prisoner-of-War escapes from the the Second World War.

Cheryl Toussaint is the meet director of the Colgate Women's Games and an Olympic silver medalist She grew up in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and began running with the Atoms Track Club at age 13. There, Coach Fred Thompson nurtured her athletic talent—and encouraged her academically. Cheryl earned an academic scholarship to New York University and kept training with the Atoms, eventually making the Olympics in 1972; she competed in Munich in the 800 meters and 4x400 relay, where she helped the team make the final—and eventually, win silver—despite losing a shoe. She also began assisting Thompson with his other venture, the Colgate Women's Games, and took over as meet director when he retired in 2014. It's the longest running track and field series for girls and young women in the United States, open to all young women from elementary school through college and beyond, and has launched the careers of many other Olympians and successful women in other fields.
In this week's episode of the Propcast, Louisa is joined by Emanuel Heisenberg, CEO and Founder of EcoWorks, and Mauricio Weiss, GP and Founding Partner of Zacua Ventures where they discuss all things renovation, regulation and innovation. With 40% of emissions being used on buildings and 20% on materials, the guests delve into the short- and long-term costs of going carbon neutral and whether it is a realistic goal with today's current economic climate. The guests discuss how an increase in sustainability pressure, paired with geopolitical instability and labour scarcity are a handful of the challenges that accompany reaching net zero targets. Emanuel shares how the EcoWork's product can help tackle key issues around scarcity of labour and materials from factories, whilst Mauricio discusses the trends he has seen with his portfolio companies in terms of increasing their sales. Companies mentioned MIPIM JLL Spark Shoutouts Vivin Hegde Arnaud Bouzinac Robert Habeck Josh Levy, Document Crunch Previous episodes mentioned The evolution of global construction technologies Episode Highlights Regulation is actually pushing for a lot of technology adoption in terms of higher requirements, and these requirements just make the processes much more complex, right? - Mauricio So they really tackle the 80 percent renewable energy goal for 2030 and they really decarbonize the heating system with good and aggressive regulations. - Emanuel The construction sector invests 1 percent in R&D and the housing sector 0.1%. So, they will not bring any transformation towards affordability and decarbonization. - Emanuel You do need regulators – to start pointing the marketing to the right direction, but you also want to keep competitiveness and ensure a free environment and a secure environment to make investments and to see the return of these investments. - Mauricio Investors and a lot of stakeholders are questioning whether this is the right moment to be investing in technologies or an economic turn that will potentially slow down the piece of adoption for technology - Mauricio Previous episodes mentioned The Evolution Of Global Construction Technologies Key Takeaways The use of circular building materials in helping companies reach net zero targets The need for common standards across Europe, as well as the challenges that this would bring due to difference in buildings and needs for each country The need for regulators to be very close to investors in sharing short term and long-term goals of decarbonisation and technology adoption How to position certain aspects of ESG to pitch to create sustainable competitive advantage for that company without changing the core of your business Emmanuel shares some advice about the German market for founders looking to expand The lack of construction companies in Germany About our guests Emanuel Heisenberg Emanuel Heisenberg studied history and economics in Munich and Cambridge. He has over 15 years of experience in setting up and developing companies for renewable energies and ESCO and has contributed to more than 50 energy projects. His international network includes numerous funds, utility companies, IPPs, entrepreneurs, and research institutions. After founding a contracting and geothermal energy company, he established ecoworks in 2019, introducing the concept of serial renovation to Germany. An initial pilot project in Hameln proved challenging but was also a significant success. The renovated buildings there have demonstrably achieved NetZero levels. In addition to his role as CEO and founder, he is also active as a speaker and expert in energy and climate policy, advising the German federal government, companies, and private equity funds in the fields of heating and energy efficiency. In 2020, together with journalist Georg Diez, he co-wrote a book on the significance of technology in reinventing democracy (Power To The People: How We Reinvent Democracy with Technology). Ecoworks ecoworks develops end-to-end software and prefabricated elements to turn apartment buildings with significant renovation backlog into attractive and climate-neutral living spaces in just a few weeks. In this way, the company is making a significant contribution to rapidly reducing emissions in the building sector and the dependence on fossil fuels. ecoworks is an innovation leader in a market that will unleash enormous investment volumes in the wake of national and European legislative initiatives and rising energy and CO2 prices. Around 45 million residential units in Europe are located in buildings with the worst energy ratings. In addition to regulation, these will be particularly burdened by high CO2 prices, which will become mandatory for the building sector soon. Comparable regulations are already planned or in effect in parts of the US and Asia. The Berlin-based company developed the technology in Germany and is currently bringing it to the mass market with several projects. The company is considered one of the most innovative providers of Climate Tech in the building sector worldwide. Mauricio Weiss Mauricio is GP and Founding Partner of Zacua Ventures, a global Venture Capital fund focused in the construction industry. Mauricio works closely with entrepreneurs in the industry to support the adoption of new technologies and improve productivity and sustainability on construction projects. His background working in a large construction company first and at the CVC of Cemex later taught him what is needed for a successful implementation of technology and the right approach for startups engaging large corporates. Zacua Ventures Zacua Ventures is an early stage fund focused on the Built Environment. With three GPs based in San Francisco, Madrid and Singapore, the fund has a global focus and each of the founders come with a proven track record, having led 30+ investments in the corporate funds in Cemex Ventures and HILTI. The fund has raise over $55m USD, to invest in Pre-Seed to Series A startups that focus on 3 main areas in the construction industry: Sustainability, Enhanced Productivity & Safety and Urbanization Solutions. About Our Host Louisa is the Co-Founder of LMRE, which has rapidly become the market-leading global built environment recruitment platform and search consultancy, specializing in finding the best strategic talent for the most innovative organisations in PropTech, ConTech, Smart Buildings, ESG, Sustainability and Strategic Consulting with operations across North America, United Kingdom, Europe, Asia-Pacific and MENA. To promote the industry she is so passionate about, Louisa set up the Global podcast ‘The Propcast' where she hosts and invites guests from the built environment space to join her in conversation about innovation.

She, and many others that we met in Germany, were also “Zeit Zeugen”, (eye witnesses) who had personally experienced, the working of God in their lives. Not only did our paths cross throughout the years in Munich, but also the lives of our daughters as they got older, and started working in their own professions. The special thing in those days, for Thomas and I, was that we were gaining friends in Munich. This was wonderful, because we had left friends and family, behind in California. So now, back to our story in Trudering. We realized that Nadja's Christmas visit, marked our first anniversary since moving to Germany. So much had taken place, in just one year. Thomas had been telling my parents on a tape, that God had done a lot of work in all of our hearts, preparing us for the coming year. Now in Munich, we felt like we were living in a palace. No longer in survival mode like it was in the cold primitive farmhouse in Nienburg. The fact that we now lived in a house with central heating and plenty of bathrooms, we sure didn't take that for granted.

Can you find the wolves in this podcast? Our guest today, Eric Roth, is the Academy Award-winning writer behind films like Forrest Gump. He wrote The Insider for Michael Mann, Munich for Steven Spielberg, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button for David Fincher and 2018's A Star Is Born for Bradley Cooper, and two years ago, we had the delight of his company as we broke down his script for Denis Villeneuve's Dune on this very show. Today, we're joined by him once more to discuss what – whisper it – may just be his crowning accomplishment. Few films this year have left the extraordinary imprint left behind by Killers of the Flower Moon – a tale of love, murder and quite-literally-poisonous greed in 1920s America, directed by Martin Scorsese. Eric's script for the film, which he co-wrote with the beloved auteur, was adapted from a non-fiction book by author David Grann, but with a very different approach to the story told in that tome. The book investigated a series of killings of members of the indigenous Osage Nation – deaths caused, then covered up, by white men who coveted their oil-rich land. At the heart of all this was a woman: Mollie Kyle, played in the film by Lily Gladstone, who marries a first world war veteran named Ernest Burkhart, played by Leo DiCaprio. Ernest had a corrupt uncle, William King Hale, portrayed by Robert DeNiro, who masqueraded as an upstanding member of the community. Molly was forced to watch in horror as at least 24 family members and friends were systematically killed as a result of Hale's scheming – unaware that her uncle-in-law was masterminding these deaths and unaware that the man she loved was helping him. Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon, however, was subtitled “the birth of the FBI” for a reason – it focused on the white law enforcement response to the killings rather than the Osage Nation itself. As you'll discover in this episode, Eric's first draft of this movie adaptation followed suit – before he and Scorsese realised they had a responsibility to navigate this tale from a different perspective. It wasn't as simple as making Molly the lead. That story, as non-indigenous filmmakers, Scorsese has implied, wasn't theirs to tell. Instead, they set about making a film about complicity that would centre Ernest in all his cowardice and employ Molly as the movie's moral heart.In the spoiler conversation you're about to hear, we break down all of the film's key scenes, uncover some fascinating details about its first draft and break down the meaning of the movie's astounding finale – a moment on film unlike anything else in Scorsese's filmography. Eric, as ever, was a total pleasure to chat with: a storyteller so inspiringly in love with what he does, that at 78-years-old, there's no sign of him slowing down. Writing screenplays is simply what he does. Script Apart is hosted by Al Horner and produced by Kamil Dymek.

In 1923, the Weimar Republic faced a series of crises, including foreign occupation of its industrial heartland, rampant inflation, radical violence, and finally Hitler's infamous “beer hall putsch.” Fanning the flames of anti-government and anti-Semitic sentiment, the Nazis tried to violently seize power in Munich, only failing after they were abandoned by like-minded conservatives. Today's guest is Mark Jones, author of “1923: The Crisis of German Democracy in the Year of Putsch.” We discuss how the Nazis' plan was initially to seize power in Munich, control Bavaria, then march on Berlin. Hitler needed the support of the military and the police, which he did not get in 1923 but did get in 1933. Tracing Hitler's early rise, Jones reveals how political pragmatism and unprecedented international cooperation with the West brought Germany out of its crisis year. Although Germany would succumb to tyranny a decade later, the story of the republic's survival in 1923 offers essential lessons about the future of democracy today.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/3101278/advertisement
Frank McDonough explores the infamous failed coup that shaped the early history of the Nazi party On 8 November 1923, the Nazi Party launched a coup attempt in Munich that has come to be known as the ‘Beer Hall Putsch'. The putsch itself was an abject failure, but it taught Hitler valuable lessons that would aid his path to power a decade later. Historian Frank McDonough is joined by Rob Attar to explore one of the best-known moments in the early history of Hitler and the Nazis.

This week, the arsonist who runs the world's largest Transnational Criminal Organization and is personally responsible for serially lighting strategic “fires” that portend a global conflagration comes to America. That would be Chinese dictator Xi Jinping and he'll visit with President Biden in San Francisco. Their meeting may be even more fraught than the one in Munich eighty-five years ago when Adolf Hitler concluded he could aggress with impunity, given Neville Chamberlain's weakness. Tragically, Biden's enfeebled condition and status as a “controlled asset” of China make Chamberlain look like Churchill. Worse yet, the CCP arsonist has been sparking fires here, too. To cite but one example, his addictive, manipulative and massively popular app known as TikTok has been encouraging pro-Hamas agitation across the country – including a vandalous assault on the White House. Xi should be prosecuted, not incentivized to further aggression. This is Frank Gaffney.
This week I speak with my good friend Richard Schürf.

What you'll learn in this episode: How Gabriela made the leap from air traffic control to jewelry design, and when she knew it was time to quit her full-time job Where the inspiration for Latitude Jewelry's collections came from How Gabriela navigates selling her jewelry internationally Gabriela's advice for people who want to take a risk in their careers About Gabriela Rodrigues Gabriela Rodrigues is the CEO and jewelry designer of Latitude Jewelry. Born in Brazil, her lifelong love affair with aviation and travel was sparked at an early age by her mother, Lúcia who was an air traffic controller. Gabriela has always had an artistic side and a flair for fashion, having studied for a degree in Fashion Design at college. Her interest in designing jewelry began later, when she did a yearlong goldsmith course to indulge her creativity. It was also a welcome escape from her stressful and challenging work life in air traffic control. Friends and family wanted to buy her designs and her very first jewels were inspired by her experiences and travel background. Latitude Jewelry was born in 2019, and Gabriela took Amelia Earhart, a pioneer in aviation, as the inspiration for her first commercial range, the A.E Collection. Additional Resources: Latitude Jewelry Website Instagram Photos available on TheJewelryJourney.com Transcript: Gabriela Rodrigues changed careers from air traffic controller to founder and designer of Latitude Jewelry, but she didn't leave her past behind. Her jewelry collections are inspired by everything from the sunsets she saw from her air traffic control tower to the aviation icon Amelia Earhart. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about how she undertook her career transition; how she fleshes out her many ideas; and how her past career prepared her for the challenges of entrepreneurship. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the second part of a two-part episode. If you haven't heard part one, please head to TheJewelryJourney.com. Today my guest is Gabriela Rodrigues. She's founder and CEO of Latitude Jewelry. She's speaking with us from Portugal, but she was born in Brazil and lived there for many years. Welcome back. How else were you prepared? Were you prepared for the changes or the fast pace of business? Gabriela: Since I decided to open this business, my goal in this business was always to be sold in all places—in as many places around the world. So, I was preparing myself for this. I studied about taxes, customs, pricing, currency and everything. I was very well-prepared, not only about the designing part of the business. I studied how to develop a collection, branding, marketing, but also how to manage a business, pricing jewelry, because it's very different from other kinds of products. I'm always studying and preparing myself to be where I am. Does it mean I know everything? No. I'm far from it. I'm always desperate, but I think I'm doing my best to be here. So, I've been preparing myself since I decided to have a business. Sharon: How is pricing jewelry different from other commodities? Gabriela: That's another problem from Brazil because we deal with the gold prices now, but this is something that everyone deals with in the industry. We also have the problem of currency because we negotiate all gemstones in dollars. The ups and downs of payout in dollars make it a mess for us to price our jewelry there. It's kind of crazy because one day the currency exchange is O.K., the other day the dollar goes up. It's insane how we do things there. Of course, the gold is something the industry, wherever you go, is having trouble with. If there's a rise in gold prices, all the industry will suffer from this. The dollar price exchange with the Brazilian real is a mess. It complicates a lot of our business there because we are not selling in dollars; we are selling in real, so if the dollar goes up—our costs are in dollars and also the gold prices. It's insane, but we do our best. Sharon: Does the inflation allow you to make money overall? Gabriela: I think inflation doesn't really get to people who have money to invest in jewelry. In general, of course. It's more about reaching your target. I don't think about inflation, but I think about the mood in the countries. If you try to understand how everything is going during a political problem, this can make it worse or better, but not inflation itself. People who really have money to buy jewelry, it won't affect them that much, I think. So, you're able to make money. Sharon: You've mentioned that Amelia Earhart is an inspiration to you. Why is that? Gabriela: Even before working on that airline, I knew her history about being a pilot during a time that there weren't many women pilots. She was so adventurous, so smart. She worked as a nurse during the war. She had her own clothing line. She was an amazing and complete woman, not only a pilot. She was always challenging herself. Even before working in aviation, she was an inspiration for me. So, when I came up with the name and what I was doing for my first collection, I felt she was a great person to take inspiration from for my first collection because of her strength, her adventurous spirit. I liked her even before working in aviation. So, that's it. Sharon: I didn't know that she was all those things, besides being a pilot whom everybody knows. You mentioned a collection. If you have one pendant, that's not a collection. Is it a connection to things? What is a collection? Gabriela: The first collection we made was to Amelia Earhart. It was five or six pieces of jewelry, like earrings, necklaces, all with the same motif, the compass and her last flight route. That was one collection. I also have an Around the World collection where I have these pendants. This is a kind of collection that I consider Latitude classics. I'm always adding designs to this collection. It starts with small pendants, and now I have a smaller one. I have a locket. Now, we are about to launch a spinning globe where you can set stones in the places that are important to you. So, this is a collection I'm always adding new jewelry to, new designs. There is the Twenty-Four Hours collection that was inspired by my sunset. Usually when I talk about collections, I mean at least three or four jewelry pieces with the same motif. But I always do one piece or one jewel or one ring outside of the collections just because I feel like it and I have an inspiration I think will work. So, I create pieces without collections also, not being part of collections. Sharon: The pieces that aren't part of a collection, do you think someday they might grow into their own collection? Gabriela: The first collection grew. The first collection was the first five pieces. Now there are more than 10 because I'm always adding designs to this collection. Around the World also started with only one pendant and now we have pendants, earrings, necklaces, lockets because it's all about the globe. Twenty-Four Hours is another collection. I want to add some new designs to this. If my mind and my creativity give me another idea, I can add a new piece to these collections. I don't have any problem with it. I just do whatever my mind asks me to. Sharon: What is your favorite gem you like to work with, like behind the gold map? Let's say you overlay something. Gabriela: Lapis lazuli. It's my favorite since before having Latitude. I love the intensity of the blue, and I think it matches the globe perfectly, the map. The stones have inclusions, these fades, sometimes in white and gold, so it looks like you're actually looking at the earth from outside when you put it behind the map. I love the way it looks in the world pendant, but it's a gemstone I really liked even before. I really liked the color. I used to work with it on the bench with contrasting color stones. I have an earring I made myself with lapis lazuli and another stone. The contrast of the colors is amazing. I love that earring. Yeah, it's my favorite stone, lapis lazuli. Sharon: Is it harder to work with than other stones? Is it more difficult or less pliable, or does it shatter more easily? Gabriela: No. This design is like a rounded cabochon behind the map. I have done it with different quartzes, smoky quartz, onyx. Malachite also looks great. It's just your favorite color. You can choose and put it behind your favorite stone. There's a friend who wants me to make one in amethyst. I promised her. I need to take care of it. I'm going to do it. Sharon: Do you have a list on your website where the customer chooses the stone and sends it off to you for the order? Gabriela: No. We have many options separated so you can choose, but we also have the contact form if they want. If they want to change any color or any stone, just contact us. If it's a stone we don't have and we've never worked with before, we are glad to look for it and tell the client if it's possible. We will work on it. If it's not possible to have it on that piece, we are very open. We like the ideas that sometimes come up. They come up with nice ideas, so we are there for them. We just want it to be meaningful to the person who buys it. Sharon: You have talked about the map of the sky that looks like you're looking down at earth from the sky. Have you considered making a map of the sky or a celestial map? Gabriela: Yes, actually, I have a client who keeps asking me to design—we have a constellation in Brazil. We see it from there and it's very known. I have this client. She keeps saying to me, “You need to design that.” I've been thinking about how to get this constellation into a piece for her. Sometimes I have this idea of working with stars and constellations, but I have so many ideas. I need to organize my mind step by step, choose what I'm doing next. I keep my ideas, my notes. One day. Sharon: How do you home in on what you want to do next or what you're doing now? How do you narrow it down? Gabriela: I don't. I'm a total mess in this case. I'm always doing one million things and seeing what's coming, what's ready first. I keep a huge amount of notes, a huge amount of designs. I send them to the manufacturer, to the 3D modelists, and I work with what I have in my hands. Someone gave me back this one that works, so let's do this. Sometimes I sit down and organize everything. We had a child's collection in Brazil. That was very nice to work with. I had a person help me with the design, the sketching. The ideas were mine, but we worked together and created this beautiful collection for kids. Sometimes I just choose what I'm doing next, but I'm usually overwhelmed with ideas and designs. I never know exactly what is next. That's how my mind works. Sharon: Do you ramp up for the holidays? I realize you haven't been in business that long, but do you do more because of the holidays, because of Christmas and New Year's and everything that's coming? Do you ramp up? Gabriela: Yes, we usually get prepared four months before. We reorganize our inventory, see what has sold better. Maybe sometimes we come up with a new design to sell during the holidays. I think it's the best time to sell jewelry. It's Christmas and Mother's Day, maybe, but mostly Christmas, Valentine's—not for Brazilians. Valentine's is another date; it's not the 14th of February. In Brazil, we celebrate it in June, I think. It's also a good time to organize and make pieces and to think about how to offer this jewelry and make more sales. Sharon: When you were designing jewelry and doing air traffic control at the same time, did you daydream about being a full-time jewelry designer? Gabriela: Yes, all the time. Since I decided to go with opening the company, opening Latitude, that was always my dream. But it's hard because I had a very nice job, and every month my payment was there. It's not a decision you make just because I wanted to live from my jewelry and from my creativity. It needs to be calculated. So, when I felt I was comfortable with the brand, the brand was reaching what I expected from it, then I decided to quit. For example, I wasn't able to travel because of my job. It was contrasting. I couldn't do what was needed for Latitude because I had a job. When it came to this, I decided to quit, but it was like four years of wanting to but I couldn't. I'm not impulsive at all, so I do very calculated things to do them the best way possible. Sharon: What was your calculation to leave? You couldn't travel, let's say. What was your catalyst? What was the big steppingstone? Gabriela: I don't think there was a big step, a milestone, for this. It was just step by step, seeing how Latitude was growing and selling better and appearing in some magazines, seeing that people really liked my jewelry. I wasn't happy in my job. Now I remember. I was about to take part in Inhorgenta in Munich, the jewelry fair. I was working, and I said, “I won't send anyone in my place to take care of the Latitude stand. I need to go there. I need to see how people react to my jewelry. I want to participate in that and then I can create.” By that time, I couldn't have any vacation or holidays. I said, “O.K., Latitude is working nicely, making some money. I'll be able to leave for Latitude. Now it's demanding my full attention.” I think it was this, participating in Munich in the Inhorgenta fair. I needed to quit because I couldn't send anyone else in my place. I really wanted to be there representing my designs, representing my brand. That's why I think I was there. Sharon: Was that part of your calculation, that you had to be in charge, or you had to be on the front lines seeing what people thought? Gabriela: Yes, I think it's important for you to see how people react to your product. Of course, we are designers; we love to create things. Sometimes, when you are a designer, you don't really care about how people react to your business because you just want to create something that fulfills your creative side. But when you have a business and you need to make money from that, it's your business; it's your way of life now. You need to see how the customer will react to your product, and you need to make adjustments if they're needed. Nobody better than me. Anyone could do this. Someone could be there in Munich and say, “People like your jewelry,” and those were the comments, but I needed to be there to see how they reacted. I'm the designer, but I'm also the owner of this company. I need to make it work. Sharon: What were some of the comments you got that motivated you to take the next step, to leave air traffic control? Gabriela: I was growing. I was appearing in some magazines. I was starting to sell more frequently, and I was unhappy in my job. It was more about how I was feeling in that job, and how I felt that I was failing with this new business because I couldn't have my attention fully directed to the business. It was a time that I couldn't keep doing that the way I was. It wasn't about what people think. Actually, people always say—not my mom; she was always very supportive—but people say, “You're going to quit this job? It's such an important job. You have your payment every month. You are going to follow your dream?” I went, “Yes, that's it.” I don't regret it at all. I miss my friends. I miss the job. At the end, I wasn't happy, but I was proud of being an air traffic controller. But it wasn't what I wanted to be anymore. People were saying, “Don't do that,” and I went and did it. I quit and I'm very happy now. I'm happier than I was, and that's it. You don't have to follow the others. Just go with your plan. I always planned in advance, so it wasn't a surprise to anyone that I quit because I was doing it step by step. When the moment came, I just quit. You don't have to involve the others. Just don't do it. Sharon: Pardon? Gabriela: Don't care about the others' opinions. Just don't do it. If they really want what is best for you, it's their idea of best and not yours. It's not what's going to really fulfill you and your dreams in your life. So, just go for it. Sharon: That's good advice. Thank you very much for being with us today. We really appreciate it.
