305: Shifting Gears, 10/18/2019

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 58:59

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small On this rebroadcast, The Pulse looks at cars. They've shaped our modern lives, from where we live and work, to the shape of our communities, to how we spend our money and free time. But along with new opportunities, cars have also brought negative impacts — air pollution, traffic deaths, congestion, and road rage, just to name a few. On this episode, we explore how cars have affected our world, and how we might reframe their role going forward. Also, why we often behave so badly while driving.

2019-10-18 Law and Disorder: Climate Change in the Courts

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 58:56

Prx_law_and_disorder_small

Host: Greg Dalton

Guests:
Michael Gerrard, Andrew Sabin Professor of Professional Practice, Columbia Law School
Laura Tuggle, Executive Director, Southeast Louisiana Legal Services
Tanisia Reed Coachman, Houston resident and survivor of the Tax Day Flood
Nicholas Kusnetz, Reporter, InsideClimate News

Portions of this program were recorded at the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco.

Climate change is affecting every aspect of our lives - our environment, our health, our economy and our future. And now, it’s even creeping into our courtrooms. Climate change has brought on a wave of new reasons to go to court, for those on both sides of the issue.

 

In Julian vs. the United States, youths sued the government for violating their constitutional right to life and liberty by encouraging climate-altering activities. Fossil fuel companies are fighting back by advancing new laws that have a chilling effect on the activist movement – such as an Oklahom law that equates protests with domestic terrorism.

 

“Basically what the bill did is it took actions that are somewhat common in environmental activism movement… sort of blocking a gate or, in the case of Standing Rock, a protest [that] bleeds onto private land,” explains reporter Nicholas Kusnetz. “It took something where there were previously kind of misdemeanor minor charges, and suddenly they became really serious charges.” 

 

The increase in weather-driven disasters over the past few years has given rise to a whole new branch of legalese, known as “Disaster Law.” Laura Tuggle of Southeast Louisiana Legal Services helps disaster survivors navigate the muddy waters of federal relief, insurance claims and inheritance rights. She recommends that people not wait for a disaster to get their affairs and paperwork in order.

 

“Even if everybody knew that grandma wanted her niece or her granddaughter to inherit her home, if that's not written down in a will that's not what's going to happen by operation of law,” Tuggle warns.

Skookum (#1534)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00

26451895671_444f5a2969_n_small You might assume that the Welsh word plant means the same thing it does in English, but this word is a linguistic false friend. The Welsh word plentyn means "child," and the word plant means "children." Some false friends are etymologically unrelated, such as the Italian word burro, which means "butter," and the Spanish word burro, or "donkey." Others have a common root, but took divergent paths in different languages. The Latin word fastidium, for example, means "loathing" or "disgust," and gave rise to Spanish fastidioso, which means "annoying" or "tedious," but also English fastidious, which has the somewhat more positive meaning of "meticulous." Gift in German means "poison," but in Norwegian the same word means "married."


Stacy in Eureka, California, wonders: what's the proper way to pronounce the word bury? Should it rhyme with jury or cherry?


Mark from Newport News, Virginia, says his mother, who grew up in Fancy Farm, Kentucky, often used a puzzling phrase. To ask how close he was to completing a task, she'd say How much do you like? In parts of the Southern United States, this expression simply means How much do you lack?


The adjective skookum comes from Chinook jargon and is commonly used in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest to describe something strong, good, muscular, or powerful, as in a skookum Malamute or a skookum drink.


Quiz Guy John Chaneski is pondering the term o'clock, which is a shortening of the phrase of the clock. What would our language be like if we used that construction all of the time, or as he puts it, all o'time? For example, what similarly constructed term would designate a reverend by the material used to make their clerical garb?


Now that he's reached mid-life, Jeff in San Diego, California, is eager to start writing fiction, but he worries that creative writing classes may be simply self-indulgent or otherwise unhelpful. He shouldn't be. Across the nation, older learners can take advantage of excellent and affordable classes in creative writing at places institutions such as the San Diego Community Colleges. Most cities have organizations like San Diego Writers Ink, which can provide wonderful support, encouragement, and instruction. Or to work completely on your own, try a book like The Lively Muse Daily Appointment Calendar for Writers by Judy Reeves. The key is to get started and then stick to it. Also, make sure to take advantage of all the learning opportunities afforded by special events for reading enthusiasts, such as The San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books.


Rae from Baltimore, Maryland, works in a cardiac intervention lab where surgeons refer to the esophagus as the goose. Is that bit of medical slang limited to her workplace?


Mary in Tulsa, Oklahoma, says that growing up, she and the kids in her neighborhood used the the verb pump to refer to giving someone a lift on a bicycle. This caused a bit of confusion when she went away to college and puzzled fellow students with requests like Will you pump me over to my dorm? or Just give me a little pumping.


Sister Patricia Marie in San Antonio, Texas, wonders why we use three sheets to the wind to describe someone who is inebriated. In nautical terminology, some of the ropes, or lines, attached to a sail are called sheets. If three of those sheets come loose, the boat is extremely difficult to control, much like a drunk person stumbling around.


In an earlier episode, Dennis from New Smyrna Beach, Florida, was having trouble recalling a word that denotes the interval between the end of an event or of someone's life and the death of the last person that has a meaningful memory of it. We had a couple of suggestions, but they weren't what he was searching for. Fortunately, a listener in Geneva, Switzerland, wrote in with the likely answer: saeculum. The ancient Etruscans and Romans would make a sacrifice to the gods on behalf of everyone alive at the time of a significant event, and when all of those people had died, the gods supposedly sent a sign that a new sacrifice was needed. That period was called a saeculum. The Latin word was adopted whole into English to mean "a long period of time." The genitive form, saecularis, meaning "of an age," also gave us secular, referring to worldly matters of a particular period. Secular can also refer to something that exists or occurs through several ages. For example, economists use the term secular inflation to refer to inflation that takes place over a long period of time. Similarly, in his poem "The Garden," Ralph Waldo Emerson refers to a slow-ripening, secular tree.


Growing up in Thibodeaux, Louisiana, Ashleigh was accustomed to using many Cajun terms, such as sha bebe for "poor baby," ya mom'n'em for "your family and circle of friends," and lagniappe, meaning "a little something extra thrown in." Another one is pelay, pronounced PEE-lay, which she uses to describe an action like stubbing her toe or bumping her knee. It's from piler, which according to the Dictionary of Louisiana French has a variety of meanings, including "to trample or crush," "to beat," or "to step on someone's foot."


John from Orlando, Florida, shares a story about a trip to Capetown, South Africa, where he discovered that the phrase I'll be with you now meant something more like "Wait a minute." The expression now now, deriving from an Afrikaans term, is widely used in South Africa to mean "right away."


The Mexican Spanish term tules means "bulrushes" or "marsh plants." In parts of California and along the Pacific coast, toolies or tulies refers to a place that's in a remote area, or in other words, out in the sticks.

OHR067: OHR Presents: Anna & Elizabeth, 10/21/2019

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Anna___elizabeth_prx_small

Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, prodigious purveyors of the past, multi-instrumentalists, singers and story tellers, Anna & Elizabeth recorded live at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with these unique performers.  Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark originals The Hall Family, performing the traditional song “Cowboy’s Dream.”  Author, folklorist, and songwriter Charley Sandage presents a portrait of world famous cowboy poet & singer Glenn Orhlin.

The collaboration between Anna & Elizabeth spans worlds — between their homes in Brooklyn and rural Virginia -- between deep study of mountain ballads with old masters and explorations into the avant garde — between music, performance, and visual art.  Anna & Elizabeth have performed across the country and in Europe.  Highlights include: The Newport Folk Festival; NPR's Tiny Desk Concert; The Chicago Folk Festival; The High Museum of Modern Art (Atlanta); and the Cambridge Folk Festival (UK.)  Their work has been featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC3's Late Junction, Vice’s Noisey, the Huffington Post, and No Depression. They have shared the stage with Alice Gerrard, Mick Moloney, Sam Lee and Riley Baugus, Bruce Greene, Abigail Washburn, Wayne Henderson, and also National Heritage Award winners Sheila Kay Adams and Billy McComiskey.

Elizabeth Laprelle lives on a farm in Rural Retreat, Virginia, where she grew up, and  has pursued her interest in mountain ballads for over a decade.  Since the release of her debut album at age 16, she’s been hailed as one of the most dedicated students of the traditional unaccompanied style of her generation.  The student of master singer Ginny Hawker and National Heritage Fellow Sheila Kay Adams, Elizabeth was the first recipient of the Henry Reed Award from the Library of Congress at age 16, and won the 2012 Mike Seeger Award at Folk Alliance International.  She has released three solo ballad albums, and was called “the best young Appalachian ballad singer to emerge in recent memory” by UK’s fRoots Magazine. 

Anna Roberts-Gevalt is a voracious and curious multi-instrumentalist originally from Vermont, described by Meredith Monk as a "radiant being."  She fell in love with the sound of banjo in college, moved to the mountains, and learned with master musicians in Kentucky, Virginia, and North Carolina, becoming a blue-ribbon fiddler and banjo player (WV State Folk Fest, Kentucky Fiddle Contest.)  She was a fellow at the Berea College Archive, a 2014 OneBeat fellow (Bang on a Can's Found Sound Nation,) artistic director of Kentucky’s traditional music institute, the Cowan Creek Mountain Music School, and curator of Baltimore's Crankie Festival.  She has recently delved into new musical worlds, including recent work with composers Brian Harnetty, Nate May and Cleek Schrey, Matmos, David Rothenberg, Susan Alcorn, and saxophonist Jarrett Gilgore.  She has contributed writing to No Depression and The Old Time Herald.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark originals The Hall Family, performing the traditional song “Cowboy’s Dream,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Author, folklorist, and songwriter Charley Sandage presents an historical portrait of the people, events, and indomitable spirit of Ozark culture that resulted in the creation of the Ozark Folk Center State Park and its enduring legacy of music and craft.  This episode focuses on world renowned cowboy poet, balladeer, and story teller Glenn Orhlin.

“Detroit often gets presented as this wasteland--as this post-industrial wasteland, where nothing exists. And a lot of young folks and the media are taking advantage of this wasteland narrative to present urban farming as this new thing.”


This week we’re giving a second listen to a conversation with Shane Bernardo who does community organizing in Detroit around issues of food justice. Our conversation touches on urban farming, intergenerational trauma, and the power of food to connect us with the traditions of those who have come before us. 

And we wrap up the show with a crisp apple cocktail recipe from Cardinals Spirits, our local craft distillery.

Are We Alone?

From Philosophy Talk | Part of the Philosophy Talk series | 53:59

If there is intelligent life beyond Earth, how would that change life ON Earth?

31c3eoqqzxl

News that life might exist or have existed on Mars or somewhere else in our universe excites many. But should we really be happy to hear that news? What are the philosophical implications of the possibility of extraterrestrial life? If life can blossom in our own cosmic backyard, then that means that the universe is most likely saturated with life forms. And if that’s the case, why haven’t we found any evidence of other civilizations? Is it because all civilizations are prone to suicidal destruction at a certain point in their development? If so, how might we avoid this fate? The Philosophers search for life with Paul Davies from Arizona State University, author of The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for Alien Intelligence.

Living Planet: Walk the Walk

 

Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.

 

 

Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green

 

The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.

 

Canada's First Nations vs. tar sands pipeline

 

Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

Harold Bloom's Spark

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 59:00

Bloom_small Harold Bloom sat for 60 inspired, combative years at the high table of the All-American book group. His passing this week can be said to mark the extinction of a very rare breed. He was the omnivorous, literary gunslinger who had read everything this side of Beowulf and remembered every word of it. Nobody but Google could put more lines of English prose and poetry at your fingertips than Yale’s professor Bloom. His links were memory, passion, imagination. He lived in a web of books that read people. The job of writing was not social work or politics, it was to expand our consciousness and change our lives, with beauty and wisdom. Poetry was the best way to say anything. Reading was a vocation, a love affair, an art in itself.

The literary phenomenon Harold Bloom, who died this week at 89, made a singular career listening for the ecstatic music of the human mind from four centuries of English literature. Compendious and controversial, Harold Bloom is not yet to be measured and maybe never to be explained: the champion reader who at top form could see, absorb, and remember 1,000 pages an hour, who had all of Shakespeare and Milton—Whitman, too—and the American moderns on the tip of his tongue. His three-fold test of greatness in a book was: aesthetic splendor; intellectual depth, and wisdom. You don’t have time for the rest, he would say.

Three engaging and very different albums, all called "Presence," coming up in this hour of Blue Dimensions.

High-country-celtic-240x240_small

It's Samhain! In the Celtic calendar, Hallowe'en is one of the two times of year when the veil thins out between the world of the living and the spirit domain, allowing ghosts, spirits, and faeries to easily cross over into the land of the living...and vice versa. It's a good thing that Irish and Scottish music have a rich selection of spooky, eerie, bloody, or hauntingly beautiful songs and tunes. 
There is a trigger warning for this week's show. Most of the songs deal in death, murders, assaults, and the supernatural.

This week, Katie and Joe unearth great music from FullSet; Danu; Solas; Ann Gray; Kornog; John Roberts & Tony Barrand; M McGoldrick, J McCusker, & J Doyle; Paddy Glackin & Robbie Hannan; Planxty; Vintage Wildflowers; and Martin Carthy.  Our FairPle score this week missed the mark by 4 points at 36.
