He's since been convicted of two of the murders. Jad Abumrad: So wait, they caught the guy and he was in fact black? Jad Abumrad: So does that mean that Tony Jad Abumrad: Tony Fordaycez has somehow found the gene for race, that there is a race gene?
Speaker Ancestry by DNA. Speaker With just a simple mouse swab you do at home. My kit. Jad Abumrad: Yeah? Jad Abumrad: Open one of these sterile swabs. Speaker Hi. Speaker How are you? Speaker Oh yeah. Robert Krulwich: Can we play with this just for a second? Jad Abumrad: An hour?
Robert Krulwich: No, no. Robert Krulwich: A century, [crosstalk ] century. Jad Abumrad: You mean if we both read it at one per second? Robert Krulwich: Yeah. Jad Abumrad: Wow. Jad Abumrad: How do you mean? Robert Krulwich: Well, we all started in the same place together. Robert Krulwich: According to Francis Collins, head of the human genome project. Robert Krulwich: But soon after that, humans began to fan out across the globe.
Speaker C. Speaker A. Speaker T. Speaker No! Robert Krulwich: Yes, that one right there. Let's imagine that error Speaker A! Robert Krulwich Robert Krulwich: in the baby and then that C was handed down, then you get another C, then you get another C, and a thousand years down the road. Robert Krulwich: Little souvenirs.
I guess just the way I put it. Was it yours? We've got it on a CD. Just kidding. Jad Abumrad: So what does it say? I'm dying here. What do you think it's going to be? Jad Abumrad: Well, my folks are Arab, light-skin both of them. Jad Abumrad: Okay, I'm oddly kind of nervous, weirdly. Jad Abumrad: Yeah. Just a little bit. Jad Abumrad: I'm going to guess Jad Abumrad: Zero? Jad Abumrad: Huh? All right. Jad Abumrad: One? Robert Krulwich: What?
Here's some males, here's a female. Jad Abumrad: He brought up people with blonde hair, blue eyes. Jad Abumrad: Even people from Poland who had like really red cheeks. Jad Abumrad: Run of the mill. Robert Krulwich: Now Mr. Fordaycez does not know that Jad is a dark curly haired swarthy man. And to make that sort of a distinction, you need different markers. Jad Abumrad: Well, not lot that's direct. Robert Krulwich: Just like at the beginning we just had that the perpetrator there was pretty much not white.
Now there is one thing he can read directly in our DNA. Jad Abumrad: Eye color. Robert Krulwich: That's it? That's as far as he can go? Jad Abumrad: That's all he can tell you as a scientist. He does take it further. Robert Krulwich: Oh, what does he do?
Jad Abumrad: How big are their skulls? Jad Abumrad: You see where this is going? Now this is just photo average. Jad Abumrad: Photo averaging. Robert Krulwich: This isn't science, this is something else. Jad Abumrad: Right, but when you hear things like measuring skulls, measuring ears, it's hard not to think back to pretty nasty periods of our history. Not once have I been called a racist. Not once. Robert Krulwich: I think he's onto something there. Jad Abumrad: What do you mean?
Robert Krulwich: Well, there is a tendency that people have when this subject comes up to say, "Shh, we don't talk about that". Jad Abumrad: Sure. Robert Krulwich: Well you say sure, but there are lots of sushers everywhere.
Jad Abumrad: You're not going to get me to stand on the side of shushing. Robert Krulwich: You mean how people talk about it? We'll take a look at this photo. Robert Krulwich: This one here? Jad Abumrad: You see the guy there? Robert Krulwich: Yes. Jad Abumrad: What race do you think he is? Robert Krulwich: He's back. Jad Abumrad: Definitely black?
Robert Krulwich: Definitely. Oh yeah. Jad Abumrad: How black is he? Robert Krulwich: How black is he? What kind of a question is that? Jad Abumrad: Just for a visual? Robert Krulwich: Black. Jad Abumrad: How about Obama black? Robert Krulwich: No, he's not. X Donate Contact us. New posts Trending Search forums.

You must log in or register to reply here. I feel lost in space. Dear Broken Dad: Your love for your wife and ability to forgive her after all these years is beautiful. Your daughter will always be your daughter, no matter what a DNA test says. No matter your faith, we are all humans, and no one is perfect. Start with being honest with your daughter. Consider going to a family therapist or counselor to help work through all of these new emotions. And please consult a lawyer for any legal questions.
There are resources to support you and your family. Best of luck. Dear Annie: I often go to a large pharmacy to pick up prescriptions. They see hundreds of customers daily, so there is no way the several pharmacists would recognize me. Since I wear a mask and must speak through the plastic shield between us, sometimes they cannot understand me when I say my name and birthday.
No overhyped transients. It makes other pedals, like the Direct Drive, Tube Zone, and Bogner Blue sound less refined--a feat definitely worth noting. The wideness: Very open sounding without thinning out or getting harsh. All the chime of my strat comes through.
All the bottom end of a Les Paul comes through. Even at high gain levels, without losing composure! That's a really tough trick to pull off. Usually, I find something in the frequency range has to be compromised to keep the sound focused as the gain goes up. Not here. I had two Cross Over Drives and they both did the same thing. The volume drops out. When I boost single coils, I can achieve the same effect. Previous posters have seen this on Wampler FET pedals. It's not sag--my tube rectified amps have sag, and this is not sag.
It's like the FETs in the design are being electronically pinched and can't recover quickly enough. And worse, it's a delayed cut out. The pedal absorbs the initial attack, then squishes awkwardly, and then releases. So it's not blooming; it's suffocating. It makes you feel like you're playing a step behind the music. I'll try to post a clip. The super mild annoyance: With fatter sounding pickups and very high gain, it fuzzes at the bottom end, which MI Audio says is normal for the pedal.
I wish the pedal never entered that range of fuzz, but just became creamy like a Vox. The cleanness: cleaning up gives incredible chime and detail. Not sure I've heard this level of clarity in a pedal that can get this distorted and this thick sounding. Compromises have always been made. But, when I roll down my volume, it sounds like I have the guitar still on full--no dulling of the sound. It just gets cleaner. So, what does it feel like to have a pedal that can rival tubes in tone, yet also have a minor flaw?
Well, it's a bit of a bummer, but the pedal rocks otherwise. Maybe there's a tweak out there Last edited: Jul 24,
By 'stray', I mean that the drive is more coherent than any other drive I've heard. So let's go back and consider Francis Collins' state. The volume drops out. Twitter Share. It would be hard to forget that one. Contact David W. Jul 2, The sweetness: The thickest overdrive I've had and it produces no irritating 'stray' frequencies. Aug 12,
