This is The Best of continues this week with a focus on the music of Harry James. Harry had a great tone and an excellent technique that made him one of the leading trumpeters of the swing era. He started his band in 1938 and struggled for a while until he added strings and started playing sentimental favorites that struck a chord with many people during World War 2. He also had an ear for great vocalists and there were many that sang with his band. Some of the great ones were Frank Sinatra, Helen Forrest, Dick Haymes and Kitty Kallen. I hope you enjoy the music of Harry James on our This Is The Best Of series. Thank you all so much for listening. Please visit this podcast at http://bigbandbashfm.blogspot.com

Well, with World War 3 on the horizon, we here at HWIDG would like to wish you the best in the coming apocalypse. Whether it be Mad Max style resource-gangs getting in shootouts over Mountain Dew, Fallout style atomicpunk restructuring, or a Walking Dead-esque epidemic of zombies and bad writing, we hope you have half as much fun burning the roving gimpsuit gangs as you do listening to the Ham Radio-exclusive Here's What I Didn't Get, where we bask in the glory of our pre-apocalyptic times, and the new Here's What I Don't Get About Scavenging in the Wasteland where we scream about how we miss Sunny D and Little Debbie Cakes. So saddle up your zombie horse/Robotron/sawblade-shooting VW Bus, and dial in to 443.85 and join us!- Resignations- Not Being Able to Take a Punch- Version 1.0- Translation AccuracyImagine a series of bank robberies. The most heinous the country has ever seen. Dozens killed, hundreds of millions stolen. All by one man the police can not catch. Then, he slips up. Something goes wrong during the latest heist and he gets surrounded by cop cars outside. He's finally been caught. He drops his gun, the money and walks outside, arms raised. The police yell at him that he's under arrest, to lay down and be taken into custody. Instead, he simply says "I'm sorry for my actions. I know they were wrong now. I hereby resign as a robber." In Universe A he gets pelted by a barrage of gunfire for resisting arrest and is the first person to legally die of lead poisoning from gunfire. In our universe, he's a politician too, so it's okay and he goes home and collects his pension.If you are going to put something out into the public for other people, you have to be willing to take criticism. And because it's the internet, that criticism will not be served to you on a light and fluffy cloud, no it comes in a jar filled with barbed wire and salt. And you better listen. Those are your fans. They want you to be successful, but you've hurt them in some way and need to fix it or lose them. It's that simple. You punch me, I punch back, harder, and you either run away or you can take it like a man and accept it.Version 1.0 is great when it releases. Maybe its groundbreaking, even. But it never lasts. No one watches black and white silent films anymore. They're functionally the same thing, yet obsolete. Super Mario Bros. is a classic. Any fun these days? Not really. Want some home defense? Why not try a musket from 1775? Because it sucks! Move on, old people. The future is now.So, as it turns out, language isn't just words. Crazy, eh? It's interweaved with history and culture, and changes with the time and as it spreads. So when some pedant complains about translation or localization that isn't machine-like and actually accommodates for its audience, and that it "ruins the author's intent" tell them to sit down, shut up, and eat their hamburgers, Apollo.All this and more on this week's episode!

It's New Orleans: Out to Lunch
From New Orleans to Mars

It's New Orleans: Out to Lunch

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 13, 2021 33:40


Sometimes living in New Orleans can make you want to tear your hair out. You can barely drive around the city for more than 10 minutes without hitting at least one suspension-threatening pothole. It only has to rain hard for 30 minutes and streets are flooding. At least once a year we're hit with a “Boil Water Advisory.” And the power goes out with alarming frequency because our electrical grid is apparently in a constant state of precariousness. If your observations of our engineering abilities stopped there, you'd be justified in concluding we're a bunch of inept losers. But, if you look just a little harder, and a little further east, you're going to get a different impression. A very different impression. Heading east on the I-10, after you pass the remnants of another piece of failed engineering, the long-abandoned Six Flags theme park, you pass an innocuous looking highway sign that says “NASA Michoud Assembly Facility.” If you took that exit, you'd find yourself at one of the largest manufacturing plants on Earth. There are over 43 acres of manufacturing space under one roof. You'll find 3,200 people working there. 1,200 of these people are directly involved in building a rocket. That rocket is called the Space Launch System. It's a part of a NASA program, called Artemis. When it's finished, this will be the most powerful rocket ever built. It's going to take astronauts to Mars. We can't fix the streets or keep the power on in New Orleans, but we can build a rocket to take astronauts to Mars. The current Director of the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility is Lonnie Dutreix III.  If you raise your gaze off the potholed streets of New Orleans, you don't have to look as high as deep space to see some other impressive engineering, and  architectural, achievements. For example, the new Higgins Hotel and Conference Center that's part of the impressive World War 2 Museum. Or, the Carondelet Street hospitality corridor, including the Ace Hotel. And then there's the St Vincent Hotel, and the 100,000 square foot co-working space at the CAC. All of these, and many other notable examples of new and renovated construction in New Orleans, are the projects of a construction company called Palmisano. Palmisano started out in construction in 1950, and it's been in business continuously since. Oh, and by the way, when you drive on a smooth section of New Orleans roadway and say “Thank God they fixed this street,” that's possibly the work of Palmisano's civil engineering division. The Market Leader at Palmisano is Nick Moldaner.  It's not unusual for people who live in small towns to believe they're the center of the universe. You don't have to go very far to find the self-described “Strawberry Capital of the World” - Ponchatoula. Or the even more quaintly delusional, “Rice Capital of the World” – Crowley Louisiana. In New Orleans, we don't have a grandiose slogan to market ourselves with. If there's anything like it, it's “Laissez le bon temps roulez.” While it's an attractive part of our DNA not to take ourselves too seriously, it's also worthwhile celebrating the enormous achievements in business, engineering, and science in New Orleans. The folks at NASA Michoud in New Orleans East are taking us to another planet. And Palmisano is well into the third generation of building the city itself. It's worth noting once in a while that we have more to be proud of in New Orleans than our food and music. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom. You can see photos from this show by Astor Morgan at our website. For more lunchtime business and construction conversation, check out Wes Palmisano's visit to Out to Lunch.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

London's West End attracts people from across the world to its many theatres, restaurants and famous nightlife but how did this centre of pleasure come to be? Originally on the fringe of London from its very inception, it was the playground of the rich seeking to let their hair down. Many of these entertainments were far from wholesome though with freakshows, drink, drugs and sex rife amongst its theatres, music halls and clubs. There have been many attempts to control this hedonism most of which have failed miserably and even the World War's of the Twentieth Century couldn't stop the party.

Gold Star Mother's and Family Day falls on September 26 this year and is traditionally observed on the last Sunday in September. The day is for honoring families of those who have received The Gold Star – the military award no one wants. The award commemorates the tragic death of a military member who has perished while in the line of duty and hopes to provide a level of comfort to the parents and families that are left behind. Since World War 1, a “Gold Star Family” has signified a family that has lost one of its members in combat. The family can display a Gold Star Service Flag for any military family members who have died from any honorable cause – each gold star on the flag signifies a death. Though today only around 1% of the country is involved in military service, as compared to the 12% during other times of war, like World War 2, there are still a significant number of surviving Gold Star families – not to mention, a Gold Star lives on in a family's legacy. HISTORY OF GOLD STAR MOTHER'S AND FAMILY DAY Though the exact roots of the tradition aren't totally known, it was during World War 1 that the gold star came to symbolize that a family member had fallen in battle. Around that time, the term “Gold Star Family” came to mean that you were a surviving family of a person who died in service and families hung banners with a gold star outside their homes. The tradition has since been authorized and seeks to ease the grief of mothers and families while reminding that no one truly serves alone. Gradually, there came to be many ways for grieving family members to honor their loved ones with symbols worn or places outside the home. In 1918, President Wilson allowed grieving military mothers to wear a traditional black armband featuring a gold star. Soon after, it was approved for families to cover the blue star on the service flag outside of their home with a gold one. As of 1947, Gold Star family members can also display the Gold Star Lapel. The American Gold Star Mothers Inc. first got its start in 1917, when Grace Siebold's son was killed during World War 1. Wanting to create a support system for grieving mothers in similar circumstances, Grace gathered what would become the American Gold Star Mothers to grieve together and tend to hospitalized veterans in local hospitals. The organization was formalized as a non-profit in 1928, with a mission of remembrance, education, and patriotism. Still today, they support Gold Star mothers in their grief, hold an annual conference, and organize events with supporting groups. Though Gold Star Mother's and Family Day isn't observed as a National, federal holiday like Memorial Day, it was declared by Congress in 1936 to be the last Sunday in September – though, at the time, it was only known as “Gold Star Mother's Day.” It was in 2011 that President Obama amended the declaration, declaring the day to include families as well as mothers. Today, the holiday includes any immediate family member and authorizes that person to display the Gold Star Service Flag. Today, America is not embroiled in any kind of conflict like World War 1 or 2, and far fewer individuals consider Gold Star heroes and their families – oftentimes, people may think that they don't know anyone in a Gold Star Family. However, there are many more Gold Star families from previous wars than you may think, and since over 1.3 million people are involved in the military today, it's possible you know a family that still grieves a recent fallen soldier. Understanding the sacrifice and acknowledging the holiday are the best ways to support the families and honor the soldiers. GOLD STAR MOTHER'S AND FAMILY DAY TIMELINE 1918 Armbands Authorized President Wilson authorized mothers who had lost a child in the war to wear a traditional black mourning armband featuring a gold star. 1929 American Gold Star Mothers Started in Washington, DC, The American Gold Star Mothers Inc. quickly spread across the country. In 1929, the organization obtained a federal charter to support mothers who were often separated from their ailing or dead children. June 23, 1936 Gold Star Mother's Day Recognized Since this date, Gold Star Mother's Day has always fallen on the last Sunday of September. 1947 Gold Star Lapel The Gold Star Service Lapel, in addition to the Gold Star Service Flag, is authorized to be displayed by surviving family members.September 23, 2011.

It's almost the end of September, which means Sony has revealed the free games available next month for PlayStation Plus subscribers. On PS5, we're getting Hell Let Loose, and for PS4, there's PGA Tour 2K21 and Mortal Kombat X. Hell Let Loose is a brand new World War 2-themed FPS with large 100-player battles and an RTS-inspired meta game. It was released on PC this summer and is now making its way to consoles. PGA Tour 2K21 features 15 licensed PGA Tour courses and a robust player and course creator. Mortal Kombat X was originally released back in 2015, and we gave it a glowing review, calling it the best Mortal Kombat game, period. PS Plus subscribers can grab these games starting October 5th. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 may not be hitting PlayStation 5 consoles until 2023, but Marvel is already teasing the game's darker storyline. On the This Week in Marvel podcast, Marvel Games executive Bill Rosemann compared the sequel to another famous sequel: The Empire Strikes Back. The first game did a great job of setting up this new version of Peter Parker, and the challenges he faces balancing his responsibilities as Spider-Man with his real-life identity as Parker. Now it's time for the sequel to tackle some of Spidey's more complex storylines. But he won't be alone, as Miles Morales will be there at his side taking on Venom and most likely Kraven the Hunter. And finally, the Nintendo 64 and IGN turn 25 today. Time flies, huh? It didn't feel that long ago when we were using dial up internet to look up cheats for GoldenEye on IGN64.com. What are your favorite N64 memories? Let us know in the comments!

Eduardo and Brett are at it again with another jam-packed episode of mayhem. We talk about issues like the government now looking into US citizen's bank accounts when transactions greater than $600 take place. WTF. We are starting to think Uncle Samuel has a drinking problem and every time he starts drinking he thinks everyone is cheating on him and he wants to see where his old lady is spending all her money. Is there a civil war a brewin'? Brett thinks so and he's giddy with excitement. He shares his thoughts on the episode. He notes the chaos that suddenly started as soon as Biden took office – the Afghanistan retreat from the Taliban, leaving over $10 billion worth of high-tech weaponry behind, the Biden administration manufactured humanitarian crises on our southern border, and of course the new mandate to force the jab on more than 80 million Americans. Is all this chaos being manufactured to start a World War and why? Brett shares his tin foil hat theory and it makes a lot of sense. Eduardo brings up the nonchalant response by the US military after killing 7 children and three aid workers with a bomb dropped by a drone that General Mark Milley initially called a “righteous strike”. What is wrong with our military industrial complex? Everything. Even though Eduardo is vaccinated, he still questions why so many people are exempt while the working class as being threatened with losing their jobs. Nicki Minaj tried asking questions about the vax and got lambasted by the MSM. That prompted her to compare the attack by the media to how Communist China treats dissidents there. Joe Rogan, who recently contracted the Chinese virus was also attacked by MSM when he chose to treat his symptoms with ivermectin and recuperated surprisingly quick. If it doesn't fit their narrative you become unpersoned as much as they can. Brett is declining to take the jab at all costs and talks about how fun it will to be homeless. Hopefully he doesn't approach Eduardo's car looking for change. Eddie explains why.  Like always, we talk about the serious stuff without taking any of it seriously. The secret to all this chaos is not losing your sense of humor.

The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War by David Nasaw From bestselling author David Nasaw, a sweeping new history of the one million refugees left behind in Germany after WWII In May 1945, after German forces surrendered to the Allied powers, millions of concentration camp survivors, POWs, slave laborers, political prisoners, and Nazi collaborators were left behind in Germany, a nation in ruins. British and American soldiers attempted to repatriate the refugees, but more than a million displaced persons remained in Germany: Jews, Poles, Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, and other Eastern Europeans who refused to go home or had no homes to return to. Most would eventually be resettled in lands suffering from postwar labor shortages, but no nation, including the United States, was willing to accept more than a handful of the 200,000 to 250,000 Jewish men, women, and children who remained trapped in Germany. When in June, 1948, the United States Congress passed legislation permitting the immigration of displaced persons, visas were granted to sizable numbers of war criminals and Nazi collaborators, but denied to 90% of the Jewish displaced persons. A masterwork from acclaimed historian David Nasaw, The Last Million tells the gripping but until now hidden story of postwar displacement and statelessness and of the Last Million, as they crossed from a broken past into an unknowable future, carrying with them their wounds, their fears, their hope, and their secrets. Here for the first time, Nasaw illuminates their incredible history and shows us how it is our history as well.

In our humanness, we struggle at times to achieve peace.   World War 1 ended 100 years ago, and all sides joined together as a League of Nations to make that conflict the “War to end all wars.”   Then World War 2 happened.   Our history is littered with noble attempts to make things right, but only God can bring peace to nations, and to individuals. He has promised both! One day, He will make everything new, forever. While we wait for that great day, He also grants us peace in our daily lives.   2 Thessalonians 3:16 says, “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.”   We only have to ask Him for it. Jesus, as He said in Matthew 11:28, gives us peace even in our greatest trials, and when we are exhausted. Then, peace comes to refresh us and give us all the strength we need.   If you don't have peace in your life, simply ask God for it. He will provide.   Let's pray.   Lord, let your peace wash over people everywhere in this hurting world. Make them aware of your spirit of peace. Amen.

This week we're joined by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, co-writer of one of the year's most hotly anticipated thrillers: Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho. Audiences are in for a seriously gripping white-knuckle ride if that movie turns out to be anything like Krysty's first-produced feature film, the incredible 1917. Co-written with director Sam Mendes, 1917 followed two British soldiers as they embarked on a nail-biting mission across No Man's Land in the first World War. With communication lines down, the lives of 1,600 men rest on this duo delivering a message to a stubborn battalion captain that his soldiers are about to walk into an ambush. On release, the film garnered more attention for how it told its story, rather than the story itself. 1917 used long, intricately-choreographed takes to give the impression of a story told across just two uninterrupted shots. It was heralded as an unrelenting real-time glimpse into the horrors of war unlike anything before it. But the movie's technical accomplishments would have felt empty were there not an emotive plot powering it forward. In the conversation you're about to hear, Krysty pulls the curtain back on every element of that plot, detailing the painstaking research that went into forming the film's characters. We also talk about discarded plans for a mustard gas attack sequence, why a certain central character simply had to die, and why we as a society continue to tell World War I stories a century on.Support for today's episode comes from Screencraft, WeScreenplay and Caveday.Script Apart is a podcast about the first-draft secrets behind great movies.

Sophie (age 7) and Ellie (age 5) tell the story of the Eastern Front in World War Two between Germany and the Soviet Union. Hitler and his Nazis rule Germany. Stalin and his Communists rule the Soviet Union. They hate each other. Hitler decides to invade the Soviet Union and conquer it. The Soviet Union is huge and has many people in it. However, it is poor and its army is old fashioned. The Germans have invented a new way of fighting battles with tanks and airplanes. It called Blitzkrieg which means Lightning War. The Germans invade the Soviet Union without warning. They quickly smash through the Soviet lines and surround hundreds of thousands of soldiers. Then they push onto Paris. However, Moscow is so far from Germany that it too them until the start of winter before they arrived. The Soviet solders fought desperately. They were helped by Soviet soldiers from Siberia who were used to the cold. The German generals wanted to retreated but Hitler would not let them. He was right this time. The Germans just held on. In 1942 the German attacked again. This time they attacked South. They wanted to capture the oilfields to stop the Soviets having petrol for their tanks. They captured lots of land but had to capture the city of Stalingrad first. There is fighting for months. Secretly the Soviets mass tanks outside the city. They attack and surround the city. Hitler will not let the Germans retreat. It is a mistake and the whole German army is forced to surrender. Meanwhile, Hitler's evil plans continue. His soldiers kill many ordinary people and, in particular, they start killing Jews. The next year Hitler attacks for the last time. There is a massive tank battle. The Germans lose. The following year the Soviets attack. They force the Germans back. Just as the Soviets are about to invade Poland they stop. The brave Poles rise up and fight the Germans. They beg for help from the Soviets. However, Stalin is happy to see the Poles be killed by the Germans because he wants to rule Poland after the war. The following year the Soviets close in on Berlin. They are cruel to many ordinary German people, especially to women. After brutal fighting the Soviets capture Berlin. Hitler kills himself, and he kills his dog too. The World War in Europe is over. Patrons Club Please do join our Patrons Club – www.patreon.com/historystorytime

It's probably a little more in depth than other episodes but I am sure if you listen through it will make sense - and towards the end we summarise and talk to the key takeaways from a more practical point of view (what foods to eat more and less of).Resources:Alan on InstagramAlinea NutritionSigma NutritionNutrikynd Essential 8 multi-nutrientGuidelines/Position Statements:https://www.jacc.org/doi/pdf/10.1016/j.jacc.2019.03.010https://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/article/41/24/2313/5735221?login=truehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5837225/pdf/ehx144.pdfhttps://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/article/41/1/111/5556353https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/full/10.1161/CIR.0000000000000510Mendelian Randomisation Studies:https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0735109712047730?via%3Dihubhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC6101243/https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1604304https://www.cardiology.theclinics.com/article/S0733-8651(17)30151-0/fulltextWant to support the show?If you are enjoying the Plant Proof podcast a great way to support the show is by leaving a review on the Apple podcast app. It only takes a few minutes and helps more people find the episodes.Simon Hill, Nutritionist, Sports PhysiotherapistCreator of Plantproof.com and host of the Plant Proof PodcastAuthor of The Proof is in the PlantsConnect with me on Instagram and TwitterDownload my two week meal plan

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Samuel Beckett (1906 - 1989), who lived in Paris and wrote his plays and novels in French, not because his French was better than his English, but because it was worse. In works such as Waiting for Godot, Endgame, Molloy and Malone Dies, he wanted to show the limitations of language, what words could not do, together with the absurdity and humour of the human condition. In part he was reacting to the verbal omnipotence of James Joyce, with whom he'd worked in Paris, and in part to his experience in the French Resistance during World War 2, when he used code, writing not to reveal meaning but to conceal it. With Steven Connor Professor of English at the University of Cambridge Laura Salisbury Professor of Modern Literature at the University of Exeter And Mark Nixon Associate Professor in Modern Literature at the University of Reading and co-director of the Beckett International Foundation Producer: Simon Tillotson
