Learn the Cockney accent with Jason Statham
You're asking me about Cockney accenté Did you know a quot;Cockneyquot; used to be apejorative term for the working class Yeah. Nonsense! It is the accent of the true Londoner Who's a true Londoneré If you're thinking of that guy in Mary Poppins Nonsense, that is an American impostor, He is not British. He is not a real Londoner! Now, if you're thinking of Michael Caine.
He is a true Londoner! He's a Cockney, and he's a legend But how do you speak like a Cockney you aské Well my son there are a few rules you have to follow if you want to sound like a true Londoner. First one is that quot;Schwaquot; sound my good friend Aly taught ya! that's the quot;UHquot; sound. With a Cockney accent, it is more pronounced.
Regular person might say quot;quot; But a Cockney says it quot;DoctAAAHHquot; Same as in Strongerquot; quot;Fasterquot; quot;Harderquot; quot;StrongAAHH!quot; quot;FastAAHH!quot; quot;HARDAHH!quot; That brings us to our next point, Hsé Don't need em! Get rid of em!

The quot;Uhquot; sound Words like: should sound like: The T stops in the throat So none of this: Nah! Should be: Remember to use the Glottal T
Johanna Blakely Lessons from fashions free culture
I heard this amazing story about Miuccia Prada. She's an Italian fashion designer. She goes to this vintage store in Paris with a friend of hers. She's rooting around, she finds this one jacket by Balenciaga she loves it. She's turning it inside out. She's looking at the seams. She's looking at the construction.
Her friend says, quot;Buy it already.quot; She said, quot;I'll buy it, but I'm also going to replicate it.quot; Now, the academics in this audience may think, quot;Well, that sounds like plagiarism.quot; But to a fashionista, what it really is is a sign of Prada's genius: that she can root through the history of fashion and pick the one jacket
that doesn't need to be changed by one iota, and to be current and to be now. You might also be asking whether it's possible that this is illegal for her to do this. Well, it turns out that it's actually not illegal. In the fashion industry, there's very little intellectual property protection. They have trademark protection,
but no copyright protection and no patent protection to speak of. All they have, really, is trademark protection, and so it means that anybody could copy any garment on any person in this room and sell it as their own design. The only thing that they can't copy
is the actual trademark label within that piece of apparel. That's one reason that you see logos splattered all over these products. It's because it's a lot harder for knockoff artists to knock off these designs because they can't knock off the logo. But if you go to Santee Alley, yeah.
(Laughter) Well, yeah. Canal Street, I know. And sometimes these are fun, righté Now, the reason for this, the reason that the fashion industry doesn't have any copyright protection is because the courts decided long ago that apparel is too utilitarian to qualify for copyright protection.
