"Tweets already buster bleacher tweets for a mundy ahead of the postseason. Pk steinberg wrote in over the weekend. And he said an interesting photoshop of you me and a couple of bleacher. Twitter's jeremy tear meany t. jones and pk and it's it's titled ensch wink. It is our faces over the 'n sync album cover And he basically says he says thanks for a great regular season meet in swing and ensign cover band a hashtag man behind featuring buster taylor jeremy jones and pk bus or do you feel slighted that he made me justin timberlake in this graphic. I i lead the bleacher. Tweet segment but i always think of you as the jt of this. Podcast is that reference. I totally get it. You are the You're the bottle for pk. And whether or not his bleacher tweets or read on air so you can understand why he gave you credit. I and you know what that said. I'm gonna break off as solo act as soon as this. Podcast is over fair enough. Let's go to brian role at brian. Baseball five. Brian writes in new. Cba pending of course. But do you think robbery and marcus. Semi-in resign with toronto. They seem like integral parts to that team. I don't think simeon will sign with the blue jays. Look i just have too much around the edges about how he wants play shortstop and how he preferred to be in the west coast. I have not heard that markets directly. Maybe that's That's not online. But i'm hearing that from a lot of different people i do think they'll re-sign robbie ray pay what it takes because he was so good for them this year absolutely. Let's go to our guy. Reggie deal at baseball deal are irradiated high buster when evaluating the twenty twenty one performance of teams. The following clearly seem due for manager changes. If not more. Padres and mets and in my view. Perhaps the phillies do agree. Are you surprised. The rangers orioles an diamondback. Stay the course. I'm not surprised. Phillies will stay the course. It looks like joe girardi i. I know there's some speculation philadelphia. I think the wind up keeping him. We'll say they're obviously going to be changed with the padres. In the matt's a sh- the rangers now not surprise based on stuff. I've heard not surprised about the orioles that we've talked to the podcast. It's not about brandon. Hide the struggles. In recent years is not about any players on the team. the diamondbacks. It was a little bit of surprise because they let go a lot of coaches in season or they made some coaching changes in season that usually signals as we saw with the pot grays that the manager might be hanging on the edge whether or not to be replaced. The orioles have made the manager position obsolete for the moment. Paul fran much. Paul friends at paul france rates. And how do you know when the issues with the bolton are due to the pitching versus the way. The bull is being managed. Yeah it's a great question And it's funny because you. Oh aaron boone. At got a lot of scrutiny over the weekend for some his managerial decisions and then on sunday there wasn't a peep about his managerial decisions. And their way he uses parade of relievers. Because it worked out. I mean usually tailored he'd agree with everything is seen through the prism of whether you win or lose. Lose your idiot if you win. You're the greatest ever I do think in terms of bullpen decisions. A key factor is how often you use these guys. You have to have managers who are disciplined in terms of holding back and not overusing relievers especially early in the year and i know they're evaluators other teams absolutely believed that that was a problem with the padres that they relied on their bullpen. The same guy is heavily early in the year in by the end of the year. They all kind of fell apart. Let's go to cody. Cody the matthews rates in whoa. I've waited patiently for a week but still no answer. Buster casually dropped thoughts. That mike trout will be playing left field next year and a podcast last week. What is the rationale here that trout as he gets older as we saw with torii hunter when trod came on They'll eventually move him to corner spot. And the merger brandon marsh as an excellent defensive center. fielder I think makes that more likely that it's going to happen sooner rather than later. So next year in spring training we hear from joel madden or maybe during the off season at that What they're gonna do with trout. That would not surprise me at all and mike. Trout is a lot like barry bonds in that there's so many elements to his game that you know mung the best ever throwing is not one of those skills that he has throwing as the weakest of all skills last one for the regular season matt at kayaking. Smith rates in buster taylor. Thanks for taking us through another great season. You guys are awesome. Do you have a favorite moment or stat from the season that you'd like to talk about today man. I'm just going to use this opportunity. Say thanks to everybody who listens and thanks the bleacher. Twitter's i love doing this particular segment every day You know getting feedback talking about what you guys want to talk about. So i i'll throw it back you Mad as we go forward this week send in a stat that you want us to talk about Because you guys all did that so well. During the course of this year i love that buster. I agree with your sentiments there. Thanks for everyone who writes in each and every day we love the listeners. We could not do this without you. So keep sending them. In as the postseason progresses hashtag bleacher tweets on twitter. Please follow rating. Review this podcast..

"Be fully rested that alab time to prepare for that starred he and melina. I'm sure are having a lot of conversations on their side of things he's not going to be affected by the moment we don't Who's not going to be affected by that moment. This is a fascinating match up to me and one of the interesting questions i have. Tim is what Daybreak abbots will do it first base because there are certainly combinations that he could play in. Cody bellinger maybe at first base But i wonder how he'll be pulled emotionally by the possibility of signing out using our pools at first base in this game because this year albert you know like a lot of hitters. They get get older. He struggled against high-velocity pitchers opie was under six hundred. The type of pitchers that he had a lot of success against zo. Ps about eight fifty with furnace pitchers. He he did well against those guys. And adam wainwright he'll be thrown from seventy miles an hour to eight miles an hour. The type of pitcher did albert hits against and you know that his heart rate's going to be in good shape in that moment. And and. I'm sure dave roberts gonna think you know what this could be one of those You know like kirk gibson type moment. Where in all pro will respond to the stage. And so i'm curious to see what he does. It first base. What are you seeing this matchup. Well i love the pool holes bellinger decision and cody. Bellinger has not swung the bat. Well little better lately. So i'm with you. I think he looks and says i'm gonna play albert at first. Because he was born for these moments even though he's not the hitter that he used to be. And i can't wait to see adam wainwright. He is had buster in a lot of other seasons. A cy young season but this year with this ridiculous pitching in the national league with wheeler and burns and buehler ensures her He's not gonna win the cy young but i take him right now with the way he's throwing in any game and he's going to be up for this and you're right in yati will come up with a great game plan for the dodgers and just keep in mind with the dodgers. They led the league in runs scored buster but they just had been told they just haven't been the same offensive team moving guys around doing little things like that. We'll see way right. Can exploit that a little bit and pitch really well and with max scherzer against adam wainwright. Please signed me up for that one every day. Then it's gonna be an absolute blast. And i would love our to be in the starting lineup and a walk up to home plate. And there's molina who's like his little brother and he's staring at it. Wainwright get ready for those plate. That will be so much fun but before that again we get the funding american league wildcard game on. Espn on tuesday night. Tim great to talk with you. Okay buster talk to you. I'll see you in boston. Headed up today and can't wait to be there talked about that. Nineteen seventy eight playoff game while preparing for the podcast today. Thought how cool would be if we heard the sounds of the bucky dent home run from the yankees and the red sox radio broadcasters. Here's frank messer. Yankees broadcaster describing the bucky. Dan home run. In in the run-up you'll hear bucky. Dan thousand ball opposite instep and this was in a situation in which the yankees had no other infamous available willie randolph in strained a hamstring. The taken brian doyle out of the game Earlier for pinch-hitter so lucky. Dan had to stay in the game. Give listen to frank. Messer broader person off the pitch. Bill ball off. His foot died off his foot. Earth the same footing hitting spring.

What is this for? And then they interrogated my wife about what's this for this for Covid? My wife, France was. Does it matter? I have a prescription from a doctor and I want to get elected. And so ultimately they filled the prescription. But this is happening all over the country. The pharmacists are blocking the doctors.

"In our history like the most likely thing is we're gonna get acquired by a bigger company disastrous. What happens to so many others and so to have gotten this far on be just looking up beautiful groves and sort of fundamental dynamics of the business and then thinking about you know the next two three four or more years a kind of feel more confident than ever that we will. We will be here in another ten years on. We will be intercom Not something else. Really tiding forms maturity. The one thing that's constant in life is changed. I think as much as you can view every twist and turn in the road as an opportunity. It's i don't wanna be cliche but the whole when one door closes another opens so for example. I think that through kovin. We saw a massive massive opportunity to further accelerate our business and the digital transformation that the world is going through five years happen in one year. Maybe ten years happen in one year and in. We're never going back. And i think it's one of those situations where like the volume has turned up on what customers expect in the kind of relationships. All that you can do in the the digital world has just shot up in a big way. We're now at eleven and it's never going to go back down. It's just going to turn up more and more from there so thinking about where is their opportunity. I also think things like during the worst times of the cova crisis using this as an opportunity to offer our customers discounts and help them out when they need help. So i think part of opportunity is knowing when it's your time to step up and do more one of the other things. I'm super proud of related to that. Is the declaration that we made earlier this year at that we are committed to being net zero emissions across all of our operations both direct and indirect and ultimately and starting now this year and ultimately become climate positive and to me. That's like the. That's the kind of thing that you can do this. Beyond just the scope of your company as as you get stronger and stronger. So that's the type of opportunity that we start to have as we played this level when you realized like detains when you sat down four people in a coffee shop to talk about. I remember own outlining sort of core working principles with us one day. We all kind of agree. I don't know if we show cons but we all kind like you know does wide agreement. Let's gopher where pasta anything we set out to achieve thought from not meeting their but ambitious infectious and contagious.

I did eight nine or eight years ago because i kind of a to intercom does not need an archaeologist intercom. Needs like a chief strategy officer. Who's going to be excited about the future.

"So i'm suddenly spending my home morning calling every cake shop in the in the area being like you please like all come in there and all right up myself like please just like eighty geic it was so scrappy like we were all just doing our best and we were trying to be creative and we were working really hard just to get this thing off the ground to i two. Hallelujah moment i remember having was honesty was probably late in the day. Relative like it wasn't like surge day of product. Whatever a cell phone call with a. I think his name is gary steven and he had a product called sifter. We you know it was a skype call because again it was no good tills back them. I just remember like garrett opened up the conversation like literally the first thing he said it was. Oh my god you guys. This is incredible. Company for valuable sparked spend all day talking to all my customers. I'm getting feedback. It's incredible the thing that really like were definitely hints of success in run-up to for sure but this is the first person who like i knew was a good product person and i hoped was starved of customer feedback in relationships to say we were on like within a quick burst of attorney second monologue. He made it clear that. Like i run a good product and i have this problem and that's when i realized this isn't unique to us. It's not because we're doberman. It's not because of peculiarities of previous business. At the time. I would say every sauce every software as a service business. Has it version of this problem and we just need to make intercom work for them all. It was probably the most formative experience of any part of my career employee number. Four jeff gardner. Jeff says the next few years for intercom were whirlwind. Being able to join a company with just eight people eight total people including the founders and watch that goto you know six hundred and fifty or something over just under eight years and just the wild customer growth revenue growth you know different phases of the company. Adding offices like it was an incredible experience. You know as a lot of experience in terms of different aspects of business crammed into a very short period the pieces that like excite me most are the milestones. You cross this kinda no turning back from whatever like when we crossed a hundred million dollars in revenue. And i was like right like i don't wanna sound better but there's a lot of people who said we wouldn't get there. You know what i mean or will we go valued over a billion dollars. Whatever like the nature of kinda running especially at the start is like you're putting yourself on your ambition out there on it's like one of our listeners will give pumper society of children's bread the dreams out of view tread softly because you try to their dreams. The some sense of dash in heavy started star. You put yourself out there by saying you think you can make the internet better. You think you can build a huge business. You think intercom could be easily a one hundred million if not a billion if not a ten billion dollar business on there is no shortage people who will be like okay but like a probably about and you're like yeah i mean the thing is the duck dockside skepticism was very cheap in like you if you predict ninety nine percent of starts will fail. You look like a genius. But if you pretty stripe will fail unday to become hundred With more on again like it's you know. I so i think like for me like there's definitely a few milestones. Were caa big. You lost and but no one's offing the dare to ones where it kinda signed at which tend to be like honestly just anything that's just a raw unquestionable evidence that like the company has produced a lot of value on for sure one example that will be like say revenue gross on the road of inter combinator. The first time that i use the intercom product was just a lightning bolt moment for me literally and i thought this is the product that i have needed in every sas company. I've ever been a part of or run intercom. Ceo karen peacock joined the company as chief operating officer in twenty seventeen. I've been a lotta sas businesses by that point. And i thought oh my gosh i just see where it is today where it could go the customer problem and like benefit and need firsthand and i thought i have to be a part of this. The second reason that attracted current to the company was the people getting to know. Owen and dez and paul and dara and the rest of the executive team and key leaders across the team. I just thought this is a group of people who are incredibly smart and yet very humble and down to earth and we've all known a lot of very smart people and not a lot of them are humble down to earth. And i thought like this. That's a very special combination. And also a group of folks who i thought had just real vision clear vision for where the future was going at aligned. The way i thought about the world in the macro trends that i was seeing what i believed in my opinions about the future just folks with really strong vision who were also really open minded and excited to talk about it and build on each other's ideas parents. Final reason for joining entercom was the growth. Which is really just validating. The i two things are true. This is a a huge market opportunity. A great product today and path forward in a very special team of people going after it. And that's why we're seeing the kind of massive exciting results that we're seeing. Karen remembers a particular moment at twenty eighteen when they were doing series d. fundraising. We're out talking to all of the best. Venture capitalists in silicon valley and talking about intercom. They were super excited. And as you may remember we ended up significantly oversubscribed and more people wanted to get in then even could but one of the most memorable meetings that that i had was with kleiner perkins in we were in there talking about intercom and doing our whole overview of what the company was and it was to all the partners in the group and every single person was really engaged in the conversation was clearly listening was asking questions except one person who's sitting in the back of the room and was on his phone. The entire time did not look up for a second. And i was trying to kind of engage him because as you know is very strange and i thought i guess he's not interested but everyone else. It seems to be really like getting this and so the whole time. You just sat there on his phone. And i thought well why does he just leave on his phone on his phone. At the very end of the conversation he said well. I just have one thing to add. If i may and i thought well this'll be this'll be interesting. And he proceeds to share a three minute poem.

It was an error tracking up actually start with intercom was a kernel of it was a tiny feature that we built into exceptional our little error. Trucking that's intercom co-founder cure on lee. Kirin says they had a problem with their software occasionally. They'd want to chat with their customers but to do it they'd have to jump through hoops. Exporting importing wasting a bunch of time. They needed a solution at this idea. I don't even remember probably owner deaths definitely whilst me we have this idea to sort of build army up exactly where we could go in as ogden's in the back end a great a message articles tourist but see that message out there using software it was no filters through to communication. All it was with the logo on a little bowl. speech vogel Out of the low of on. I guess that was the start of the curious thing is. I didn't really increase at this time. I was kind of confused. customers immediately. Started saying what's this mobile. What inside is a third party. Tools some open source. Saying i want dot com. I get up more interest from zone depot in the than the actual product that we selling to us. It's just interesting. People kept asking about this feature and it cut the co-founders thinking. Could we take this speech bubble and build it out in such a way that it could work for third parties. So that they could take this messenger and put it right into their applications. They thought about it figured it out and built his customers were very interested. Who was just a different vibe. In terms of their response to compared to the things we built in the pass it was clear the point where it was kinda clear if this is different. People really really like this data. Why so it kind of just land on fire and the whole team wasn't initially some massive invasion it just it's noble. They set about turning entercom from an idea to a business. But as dad says that takes hard work i just remembered intensity of our she trying to deliver a startup. It's not a natural thing to try and build a startup and getting a diaper gross. And it takes you know literally it takes as much as you can give much as you're willing to give and for us we were. We were incredibly ambitious right from the talk with l. And we were just incredib- ambitious people who really really really wanted to like empty to tanka. This see what we could achieve. Co-founder own mccabe moved to san francisco took every meeting. He could and started to hire people. Well my name is macy. I was her comes first. Us employees macy baker was also intercom third employees overall. My job was not defined very well. So i was kind of just doing whatever needed doing which turned out to be a lot like in those days. Intercom was still trying to prove itself as like a legitimate business. I mean as in literally we were figuring out. How do you do payroll you know. I was suddenly having to hire. An accountant was like never spoken to account. How does this all work aside from the practicalities of setting up a business. That was also the customer side of things. Oh and the rest of the team were fighting really hard to make good impressions on customers. And i'll never forget like this. Just example of how everyday was you never knew what was going to happen but one day we kinda we kinda messed up and i think we ended up accidentally sending an email to like every one of our customers customers one customer in particular this like really affected. I think that's what happened in any case we kinda messed up. An hour was like right. Macy i need your help. Like i want you to hand deliver a cake to this customer.

That rain was starting to sour in around twenty ten near the end of the growth curve for the worldwide web connecting with businesses online as a consumer started to make for a pretty crappy spammy and transactional experience the channel was over optimized maybe even dehumanized.

We're just mixed and so it didn't really move the market all that much, although we did see a move higher in interest rates as the stock market continues to recover both the S and P and NASDAQ pushing further into record territory.

Why Is Race Being Celebrated in the Census?

"I saw the census numbers came out last week and And the headlines were basically that in 10 years' time the population went from 64%. What do they say? Non? Do they say, non white Hispanic? I forget white is what they're trying to say. To to about 58% slightly under 58% white and this is being celebrated. Why is race one way or another being celebrated? What you're seeing here like it or not, up or down. Is the effect. Of Particularly recent times decades of immigration. And birth rates. And so when you have a society That is fairly young. And you have a lot of new immigrants coming into the country, and that is by policy, both Republican and Democrat administrations. And you don't assimilate people into our culture, and you don't promote patriotism and the founding and so you have a society that's dying. You have a society that are dying? And They said. Now there's 400 plus counties Saturn Majority minority. I said, Why do they keep celebrating this? Because they obvious believe minorities are going to vote Democrat and that seems to be the way it is. And if minorities are going to vote Republican, they would oppose this and we know that I've said that for years, but look at Cuba. That's a perfect example. So it's not just minorities that are coming into the country in droves illegally and legally. Its minorities, who tend to vote. At least relatively historically, Democrat

"To things like on the the cotton survey that came out just the other day Union types was on there which is something that the jvm has a potential to model five years down the road in an efficient manner but currently does not you. Either you know box to like a seal class or you just do object and instances or whatever and i feel like This is not a problem or it's less certainly must of the promise. Javascript not at all a problem on native. And it's something that would really enhance a lot of kotla and you see you see like fake union type. Show up in libraries like carotenes and serialisation And so just in general not like focused on union types but even things like overloading functions based on return type is not possible. Because that's not something. Java can do and things like that you just feel a lot of jarvis influence on colin the language that i would like to see massaged out over time and a lot of that. I think you can only do through breaking language changes. Which would have to come through major version so nothing specific but just an towards now multi-platform and the capabilities of these More powerful forms Being sort of honored in the the language features that calling gains interesting. So what fair to say that you want a future in which when someone thinks about cotton they don't think about a jvm language. still think compatibility with java is very important I just think a lot of the language features are designed with a little too much java compatibility in mind that might hold them back from you know just being a really great language for any platform rather than being a really great language for jvm that also compiles job script in native. Well i think we are almost out of time today. But i for the for the last little bit here..

"The same thing as the bumping the colin version in your palm. You know like the stability of the m Is such that at least now that you should not feel this like dread to that but the historical baggage of java having those massive releases for so long and the pain that they inflicted on developers I think you just have you have the fall out of that. And that's why we're not seeing people eager to make that jump on the java. Sixteen upgrade is not pleasant for katainen users. I'll just say kay app for example is broken on sixteen as far as i can tell his. There's some reflection stuff involved. Yeah i think as java team is going to remove in Unsafe fan because of this allegro reflective faulk says exception It's really hard to upgrade to the latest version so jolly qassam libraries that are using reflection That can just be random java sixteen and sometimes there is like no other solution to solve this problem and if you depend on that library you cannot have great is there and it's like the problem that if your dependency cannot update your second grade and and the whole world now cannot have great. Okay quickfire rounds. That means everybody right. What do you want to see given that we all agree that there is a future for continent. What do you want to see in college. Three-point oh With the new compiler. Rewrite i would love a compiler plug because i have a katainen co source. Parsing parsing library. That can do almost everything. I want except like Type inference side. I'd love to be able to plug into the compiler rather than our source code and say now that we have this. Irr generate me some source code. And that's not there yet. When i talked to the team from a couple of weeks ago like it's not really there and there's no plan this for the rest of the year to work on that. So i three oh surely by that point we can have a plug in api so we can piggyback meta programming. Seem to be the name of the game for a lot of folks theft. I've a couple of libraries. That could really use that. It's funny you mention a tooling. Because i find the tooling good and compared to many other languages. It's just fantastic. So the fact that it's good and you wanna have betters is great. But i think he hit the nail on the head with speed at loved to see some speed and performance. I just like. I'm hoping the front end is at then because i feel the need for speed as i think most that was usually complain about so if we have that by three is that like is that cheating today by three am i like. Am i trying to drought like the actual roadmap numbers by saying that. I don't know but anyway and but i will but i will say what's the other day twitter said when they said do you want the edit bautzen i'll just say don't worry about speed just takes life a little bit slower down see go by..

Like this is of java. You wanna look at it And i was doing android at the time so kind of fit right in Similar to when mentioned where everyone was just trying to dip their toes in the water with unit tests.

Three Men Aimed to Exit Afghanistan but Only President Trump Had a Plan

"Men run for president, all with the same promise that we've got to get out of Afghanistan. One of them as soon as he got into office ignored it like he ignored all the things that he said when he ran for president. That was Barack Obama. He didn't carry the Magi said what he needed to say to get elected. Donald Trump really meant it and put a plan together and it was in the process of rolling out, although part of that plan had to do was sending a message of the Taliban that if they violate any of the conditions of the pullout, we would stay and we would hit them and would strike them hard. You remember last year that's exactly what happened. And then it gets handed over to Joe Biden. And now look where we are. The reason that I laid this out here for you is this We've been there 20 years. Give or take a couple of months. Our Pentagon leadership. The brass, the generals, the admirals. They have been in charge of our military forces on the ground. Your brothers Your father's your uncles, your Children. For 20 years. And maybe it's me and I am looking for your expertise on this. To be fair. I did not serve, but I have many friends who have served. I have many people. Who have been in Afghanistan for multiple tours, who know the people involved. I've been talking to them. And and and coordinating with them all day here, and they will back me up on this notion. We have been there for 20 years. At some point at some point, maybe five years ago, maybe 10 years ago. Maybe 15 years ago. Actually, I would argue at the point that you actually committed our troops to the ground in Afghanistan. The leadership, the military leadership.

Census Data Could Make Voting Rights Legislation Even More Important to Democrats

"Move over to the question of the census Now and my I want to ask you About the numbers that came out yesterday. We saw that the U. S population the last decade has become less white has become more diverse, notably and politically important places. Florida, Texas, Nevada, Georgia. Are we seeing up? Purple ink of these places. I don't know what purple and blue makes. But is that happening here? Well, I think it's a purple ng. If you can immediately assume that these populations this growing number of racial minorities are going to vote Democratic, then I suppose that it is Sort of a purple ink. And you also see which is another good sign for Democrats. This rapid growth in big cities over the last 10 years, which have always been democratic domains that Republicans are looking also to cut into. But I think your point is right, especially in the Sun Belt states in these battleground states that Democrats absolutely need if they want to hold the house and expand their majority in the Senate. Thinking about Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, which isn't quite the sun Belt, but still kind of in that in that range of states that Democrats will I live in Arizona. It's the Sun Belt. I'll say that Yeah, and and, you know, thinking a lot about the deep south as well where Democrats are hoping to make inroads. Of course, there are two big roadblocks to this one. The fact that the GOP controls redistricting in a majority of these battleground states and will be The party that writes these these district lines in the next couple of months here that were most likely to be favorable to them, and also in the sun Belt states. They're starting to pass, especially in Republican controlled state legislatures loss that would limit turnout among a lot of the groups that were saying or that we're seeing. Have grown substantially in population over the last 10 years. Black voters, Latino voters, Asian Americans. These are all demographics that Democrats absolutely need to win in 2022, but the Republicans are certainly they have in their toolbox just a lot more at their disposal To really Make these make this still, um something that would be advantageous to them.

On the one hand, there's a concern around clamp down on so called vice stocks in China that's weighing on the Hong Kong market. There's also concern about the spread of the delta variance in China, and we know the reaction function that that then could prompt from Chinese authorities. So there's concern about growth in China. All of that sounds pretty negative, but that rubs up against what's been a fairly solid earnings season. Four European corporate in a number of European companies upgrading their guidance. And even those in the sectors where they're concerned around Chip supply shortage the messages that they want to be able to produce more so there's a lot of positive narratives coming out of the earnings season.

The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

In 'Stillwater,' an American Oil-Rig Worker Seeks to Exonerate His Daughter

"It's a familiar story. The stereotypical American goes abroad crass and brutally honest, but with a heart of gold, who breaks all kinds of rules to save the day. But while the new movie still Water may wink at this formula, it has its own story to tell about America's place in the world. You're innocent, so we gotta keep fighting. It doesn't matter that I'm innocent Dad. It's not about justice about finding peace. That's Matt Damon as Bill Baker, a former oil rig worker who travels to Marseilles, France, to see his estranged Daughter, Alison, played by Abigail Breslin. She's in prison accused of the murder of a local French Arab girl, but claims to be innocent, and Baker struggles with the unfamiliar language, culture and legal system as he attempts to free her The movie is out now in theaters and its director is Tom McCarthy, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for Spotlight in 2016. I began by asking him if the real life case of the murder of MEREDITH Kercher, which sent American Amanda Knox to an Italian prison in 2000, and seven before she was eventually acquitted. Inspired this film. I would say the seed was there. I started the script 10 years ago, Really? And I was sort of fascinated with that case, particularly the idea of An American student being imprisoned and then ultimately focusing on the relationship between as you point out her and her estranged father. So it started there and worked on this first draft of the script with another writer, and I just got into a place where it just was straight up thriller. I just felt it lacked dimension and Maybe authenticity, and I sort of put it down. I made the decision is director not to pursue it. Put it in a drawer for about 67 years and I picked it up again and I re approached it sort of from Page one with two new French writers. And we really talked right off the bat with Tamar. But again, in the way Debray about exploring the sort of you know all the dimensions of this story, the human dimension of it. The thriller Dimension suspends

"But anything from anywhere called spunk. In do not clear. Your browser history always ask duck duck. Go shit yeah. That's a real time. I thought it was. I wish my wife would find my point. All right so gone so critical race. Theory is now though the new republican boogeyman And I can't remember the guy's name but joy reid had him on last week and mc played party speech out of school and he pretty much says that that's what they're doing. They're just using the as a catchall boogeyman because it is only taught in college at the advanced levels like you. You're not even getting in your bachelor. You know your first four years. It's like an advanced level. Course that you're going to get and it's taught in law school. I've never heard of it. It'll just recently. I've heard of it. Because i've read some of this. I read some of the books i've got books by derek bill and some of the people in and actually beside even can described as critical race theory in the books but So now is is the boogeyman and they keep. They keep saying that people that aren't critical race theorists are critical race theory. Is anybody has black anything that talks about slavery anything that has to do anything with social justice in our. It's now lumped in as critical race theory and history direct historical and say. This is critical racist. I know it's fucking history is history history. It's not. There's something good about happened in oklahoma or do you want to say that there is something good about slavery if you do. You're a fucking racist is and it goes back to what i said before the show. Which is the reason why people are against the government in gets the courts now is because they started making the playing field level and they still. We still got a sit a long way to go but once they started doing like brown versus board of education and making those decisions then all of a sudden white people didn't want the things that they want it because they were afraid. Black people are gonna get Get these things and in because they think it's a zero sum game which is what pat thinks is and and what it really describes is white fear. Which is that we will do to you guys. You guys did answer. we're fucked. Yes that's what the total is the most ridiculous fucking. It's the candia has his new podcast. He had the woman talking about that. I like the first episode which was amazing which is about how racism and And what is it able ism. Or i got like like well. He labeled him critical race theorists. And he's not not. Here's the story. And he actually does so and she actually asked a question about the to and he's like no. He doesn't believe that he doesn't like he doesn't even describe. He describes racism kind of as a thing that people do as opposed to saying. All people are racist right. So that's not even the way. He even discusses the subject. He's talking about it as behavior as opposed to judging the people as being bad right. So that's the way he discusses it so you can't even put that on him if you listen to what he says. And when he his whole brandies it's about love and bringing people together any hope in america like he has hope in. This country believes that things can be fixed. And and who is this because you yelled through it. I couldn't even candy k. h. e. n. d. i just yelled kennedy like his. He has a new be anti-racist which is new podcast was like three episodes. It's amazing because he's not doing it at darling new issue with him. Sorry we got beef. I read that. I haven't read the book yet. I have the book. My wife had the book One of his books How to be an anti-racists in any out like the podcast. Because i have not read it in. I'm so magazine articles and stuff like that you know. Explain this to my sister. When i was home. Because she she's in the black cunanan section. Which is oh boy. it's it's crazy. Craziest non sit the way. This government was set up. And if you actually run it the way it's supposed to be. It is the best form of government in the world. The problem is people in power. Don't want to give up their power. And benjamin franklin used to talk about it when he when he was talking about the formation of the country which was as long as the people in power had the best interests of the country in power in the country would be great but when the people into power stop having the best interest of the country. This is how we end up where we are and we have a republican party. That's not even fucking bringing up ideas At this point or trying to create legislation that's really good legislation that this point they just want power and so that's your problem and the country isn't designed to be a one party system to parties is what makes makes us work and if you break fucking down you're gonna break down the country and and they're so fuck so far gone with what they're doing that they don't even understand how close they are to take us to the precipice of not not existing as the country that i mean that that we should be and it's so sad that an an an i beam. Milton got into it about ronald reagan again. Because he says or he gets too much blame but no fucking all he did has has fucking put us in this position all that he started as put us where we are to the point. Where we're gonna that he started when he was in california just in the local california government. You know you can complain about some. What about the health. Cena california because it's democratically run and you can nitpick it because it's a one sided government but you know you got people to everybody wants to leave. But where are you going to you go to go to texas. And now you're not gonna have any fucking power because their power grid is going be people hand. Millions of texas is paying build the border wall with that. Been two hundred and fifty million dollars on something that a lot of people say it's a bad idea well and especially people who have land near the near the rio grande because it's fucking with their land rights and and again is something that white people to prevent black people or brown people from having an existence that's equal today ears. They will shoot themselves in the foot to to do it. It's called cutting off your nose to spite your face all right. Let's move on. It's time for this. Fuck that guy that we already know. No no no. No we start with a guy named stew peters Stupider was on something called. Rv 'em live you've Stu is a right wing. Conspiracy theorist in case you're wondering he's got some thoughts about.

"Quebec politician Dominique gloves parents. George UNGLOVED in Mealy Neptune. I'm glad we're among those killed in the earthquake. She also lost her uncle and her cousin last month as the tenth anniversary approached. She spoke in Quebec's National Assembly and told the story of her sister calling her twenty four hours after the quake Zepa Mama. That's my Malacca School because you've been the dominique ungloved is saying and I said Dad and mum and it was at that moment that I understood that in one blow. I had lost my father my mother. My uncle and my cousin Domenico glove is the liberal member in the National Assembly for the Montreal writing sent Santan. Good Morning Good Morning told me about that moment in the National Assembly this incredibly powerful Oh was It was very emotional national and I you know a today's beforehand. I didn't know whether I was going to do it. Or not I didn't know whether I was capable of speaking about this The National National Assembly. But then I I also have the responsibility to do that. My parents were due to Friskin Indians to be identified the aftermath of the earthquake and I think This story is not only my story but it's the story of hundreds of thousands of people have been acted by this earthquake. So I thought I I had to do it and I didn't know exactly what I was going to say. How was going to come out but I just shared the story like it happened And how I felt and remembering my sister calling me and my sister not being able to tell me dad and mom had passed away she was only able to tell me Who was my aunt? She's alive and Nick is alive and then I was saying and dad and she was an me is alive and sitting repeating all those lanes the people that were alive. He was incapable of telling me who was who had passed away. And that's how I understood what was going on you make that speech And then what happens. Politics can be a pretty divisive Participation to be in we know that people have different sides that they're involved in what happened happened in in that moment after when you go in regardless of what party you're from You go in because you think you can change the oil change things and I think we all human the the end so I had people from different parties coming to me and hugging me and and I could see people being emotional across all parties. Although it was a very sad moment it was also a very moving moment because as people were were all touched touched by the story and you know we have significant is for our patient as ranked Quebec. It's very hard to be quebecer and not to know one percents. That originally comes from Haiti eighty took me back a decade ago. When you first heard that their head burn earthquake in Haiti what did you think what went through your mind you know? I was restaurant and I was having dinner and somebody call into earthquake in Haiti. I'm like okay my parents out there because you're on vacation but All later it was it was nothing for me because earthquake is not something that is necessary. Terrible so I but almost like five minutes later somebody called I said. Did you see the earthquake. Oh did you hear about it and then I started realizing okay. It's more serious than I thought. And we started making phone calls all didn't have used but it was not surprising. The lines were caught and I had to wait until the next day to have news. We thought we had good connections. Some people giving us information and it was all all it was all wrong. In in from members of my family yet had died so Twenty four hours of not knowing of certainty the of stress fear and And then the news. I was going to say what were those twenty four hours like. I can't imagine seeing images hearing about it but not not knowing the state of your family. What was it was terrible? It was it was terrible. But you know we have very We're very resilient family. So he's trying to stay very active calling people finding solutions reaching out so it was also very a busy so you did have time to think too much about all this. You're trying to I was emotive trying to find solutions. But you can only imagine what a what it's like and then to us But then few hours later spoke with my aunt who had lost her her son Mike. My cousin who was twenty four years old passed away as spoke to to his mom. My aunt my aunt and she said you know dominate the dead. And there's nothing we can do about that. There's so many more things that you need to did you for the people that are alive so she was so strong that I told myself I'm here here. I am in Montreal and able to a half a positive influence despite everything that we're going to try to find solutions for the other people that are in need will deal with all this afterwards but if if we can actually get some food get people over there to help out and get back on the get back on their feet that this will will be contributing so it's a a personal tragedy within national or international catastrophe. Told me about your parents. They sounded like remarkable people So both my parents were from Haiti. the move to Quebec nineteen. sixty-nine was born in seventy four. And the reason why I was born and raised in Quebec is because my father was a was as a political prisoner under underdeveloped and He he had to leave the country and he came to Quebec in. co-founded the University of Montreal mom became a teacher and they were very involved in their communities. And when I say community for back he shouldn't communities in in Montreal. We all My mom was very involved with them. Female female groups and And my dad always invited some some kind of politics because he ended up being a minister Mr in the end in in Haiti And I think it's their engagement values that have That I've really they were able to transfer that aura to conveyed those values to us. We are with following we we walking in the footsteps. Your mom wrote a thesis. What what was the thesis? The thesis was the work of women. or how men become rich so basically defunct communism in infringing Basically illustrating that a lot of the men in he Had some money. But because of the work of the women supporting them she she was a feminist and The the book was all about the impact award jump women in the in the country. How did the work you talked about the impact that they had on Quebec Society? How did their work shape who you are now because you were involved in engineering before their death right? That's probably the reason why I mean politics today because they've always encouraged me to think about what difference I can make in the world and Politics is one way of doing that. So that's the certainly the reason why I'm doing what I'm doing today. And that that advice that motivation that your aunt gave you about The the work that you can do to help the living. What did that mean to you in terms of where you are now? It's something that I carry with me all the time. And even the National Assembly I share the fact that he had After exile after being sent to jail and finally he was a he was sent to tinker Acre back but He wrote a letter to my mom. And he said you know we're going to go and build I'm just going to translate it as a As I can right now but we're going to build tomorrow's at that look like our dreams so I thought disin- exactly what they've been able. STU gives us as values despite what's going on you always have to stand up and and fight for what you think is right we he also With the with the singer rocket fire outage in session Stein founded a foundation called copy which which means stand up inquiry all and to support people in Haiti. So I think these are values that are very very alive and that I'm trying to convert my own children that that cushion that you mentioned from your father. I mean that was that was in a letter that you found that he that he rotate your mother. Yes I mean told me about that letter. So the ladder The letter was written the year of I was born and it's also the year where he was sent to jail in that sent back to Quebec and After after they had passed away I was looking at all the papers and documents and I found that card For Chris it's on December. Twenty four th. He's writing this letter. My mom is pregnant. He goes to a nearby. My mom too tim unique and to you who doesn't have a name and he writes this card and at the end he said despite everything the wheel bill bill tomorrow was that looked like our dreams. it's very moving. It's it shows the strength that he had in the in the courage and I think we need to be inspired by this every day. When you look at the situation now in Haiti a decade after the earthquake What do you see? Of course. Haiti is going through difficult situation right now. Too Complex country a because of the dictatorship Because of everything that went wrong afterwards. A Haiti is in is in this current situation. That is very hard. The there are some initiatives that are clearly working being at the local level and copies a good example of that when you see communities are Becoming financially independent creative a standing up for themselves working agriculture working in education But at the end of the day like in any place in the world you need a stable government to make things happen and so if you think of those words that were in the letter that your father wrote to your mother that idea of building days that resemble our dreams or building days as that resembled our futures. What are your dreams for Haiti? They finally get A government that is table in they can actually focused focused on building. This new generation of leader kept population is under twenty years old It's a wealth unbelievable believable wealth. And and I really hope that there is a leader or group of people That will be able to Create opportunities for this new generation. It's a real pleasure to talk to you about this if I wanted to say.

And even the National Assembly I share the fact that he had After exile after being sent to jail and finally he was a he was sent to tinker Acre back but He wrote a letter to my mom. And he said you know we're going to go and build I'm just going to translate it as a As I can right now but we're going to build tomorrow's at that look like our dreams so I thought disin- exactly what they've been able. STU gives us as values despite what's going on you always have to stand up and and fight for what you think is right we he also With the with the singer rocket fire outage in session Stein founded a foundation called copy which which means stand up inquiry all and to support people in Haiti. So I think these are values that are very very alive and that I'm trying to convert my own children that that cushion that you mentioned from your father. I mean that was that was in a letter that you found that he that he rotate your mother. Yes I mean told me about that letter. So the ladder The letter was written the year of I was born and it's also the year where he was sent to jail in that sent back to Quebec and After after they had passed away I was looking at all the papers and documents and I found that card For Chris it's on December. Twenty four th. He's writing this letter. My mom is pregnant. He goes to a nearby. My mom too tim unique and to you who doesn't have a name and he writes this card and at the end he said despite everything the wheel bill bill tomorrow was that looked like our dreams. it's very moving. It's it shows the strength that he had in the in the courage and I think we need to be inspired by this every day. When you look at the situation now in Haiti a decade after the earthquake What do you see? Of course. Haiti is going through difficult situation right now. Too Complex country a because of the dictatorship Because of everything that went wrong afterwards. A Haiti is in is in this current situation. That is very hard. The there are some initiatives that are clearly working being at the local level and copies a good example of that when you see communities are Becoming financially independent creative a standing up for themselves working agriculture working in education But at the end of the day like in any place in the world you need a stable government to make things happen and so if you think of those words that were in the letter that your father wrote to your mother that idea of building days that resemble our dreams or building days as that resembled our futures. What are your dreams for Haiti? They finally get A government that is table in they can actually focused focused on building. This new generation of leader kept population is under twenty years old It's a wealth unbelievable believable wealth. And and I really hope that there is a leader or group of people That will be able to Create opportunities for this new generation. It's a real pleasure to talk to you about this if I wanted to say.

"10 years" Discussed on The Current

"Haiti has been trying to rebuild for ten years. After seven point. Zero magnitude earthquake left leftist capital in ruins close to a quarter of a million people died in that tragedy. Many more were injured and in the days that followed doctors from around. The world rushed to Haiti to help. Alexandra Dolphin was among them. He's an anesthesiologist who works at Saint Joseph's healthcare in Hamilton Ontario. Dr Good Morning. Good morning when when you first arrived in Haiti in two thousand ten a couple of days after the earthquake. Describe to me what you saw well first of all in getting there. It's a aw wasn't possible to imagine what would see except picking through the window of the of the plane all the landmarks. I knew going out there. We're gone and there was a kind of a dust in the yeah. The Cathedral National Palace. The government buildings all those. Thanks for a gun so when we get there then you discover the city you knew no longer existed and it will just rubbles you know pals or concrete everywhere. How did you process that knowing that city as well as you did and as you said not seeing the landmarks that anybody would expect practic- as they fly into the city? The first approach is that you haven't sense of being overwhelmed but at the same time the call of duty is there that you. That's the reason for coming. I'm from Haiti originally so it's very close to home. And they are my brothers my sisters and right now. That's really hard but we had to do what we had to do. And accept the reality of what we had. What do you mean call of duty? What what was it that drew there in the first place? Well the first question. What can I do? How am I going to help this? And how to approach this as an anaesthetist. We are good at critical appraisal and Setting priorities tapis and trying to process and priorities but the limitation also. It's what do you have to work with. Everything has been gone. So it's tough to imagine onsite insight how to solve this. Describe the scene that you encountered when when you got to. The hospital was no longer hospital. It was a building parts absolutely badly damaged and people in the field where they're attentive aware seep people everywhere but one scene I can never forget is on. There was a young lady there and as I'm passing by. She called me. She clear both arms were broken and she had chest tube and covered with. Flies is and she tells me. Please try to call for me because I'm not dead yet. I don't want to fly to EMU life. That's the kind of first thing you get and see how we're going to deal with this when you when you see something like that. I mean what goes through your mind. The first thing is immediate care and her do. What can you do to have the people immediately? We're here and we're trying to do some triage whom you can help for him with what and tried to set up things and also being part of the whole team that would dad ed. There's another difficult things. Because the Haitians themselves they were physicians nurses and so on the only been affected by this and somehow being overwhelmed they were not necessarily drawn into being part of this. Likes the world sticking get all of them. Push to decide so I had to say. Hey wait a minute here. I belong to this thing here. And how can I just bring this together and please give the sense of purpose by setting up some place for them to work which we did to that point. Where did you find space to work in a building that has been destroyed by the earthquake and where there is such chaos kind of all around you? How where? Where did you set up your your base of operations operations? So what would you was at the university hospital. They're attentive From builder nations but there was none Haitian so what I did was to find a building one of the building that was to standing and to set up uprising rooms for the Haitians and by the end of the first day we got there which is about three or four days there we managed to have at least a comprehensive approach Haitian approach to it which interestingly enough that that room lasted for Over six months afternoon of Greek for fighting the same. You're also there at a time when there is great loss and so there are people that you can help at. There are a lot of people who have been affected because loved ones friends. Family have been killed By the earthquake or the effects of the earthquake what was the mood like but also also just the sense around the hospital at that time well it was very hard because people even on a first name basis and remember one of my colleagues there who lost his wife is sure John Lewis his wife lost children and the hospital where he works collapsed. He's home he's gone. He's Gone Day a student in the hospital with nothing left in to look at him and see how stoic was in pushing dot and on. You can't do just be there but one thing with Haitians the resilience. They have to do so with the natural environment of Haiti. Not having much to start with but also belief system very spiritual religious people. But all you have to do is just can do more than being there within and NBA support. You were there for two weeks initially. Yes did you did you sleep at all. I mean I could imagine given the scale of things that that and the fact that you're there and you can offer valuable resource insistence that you would be wanted to four seven. Well the first thing when I couldn't sleep inside the homes because there was that panic with the after show so we we sleep outside but after a week Going to two weeks I started decided not to feel well. I started to cry and a lot and in being very emotionally connected with the people by that time I was fortunate enough to recognize this. And that's what would be called pitches deal things like this so I just left eighty. I took the plane came back into Hamilton and slept for two or three days or so. And then can you tell me about when it hits you when the reality of what what you were seeing hit you and as you mentioned Would start to cry well. I think it's it's a process that build up with the exertion of working all day and entering the cruel reality of sometimes. You can't do anything for the person would could help. If we're another place it builds up up to to a point where really crack after leaving and as you said sleeping for a little while returning back to Hamilton you decided to return to Haiti. Why would did you do that? Well first of all I've been going to deceased nineteen ninety so the the earthquake was just a bump along are scheduled. DOC ID program and after the earthquake I personally continued to go and I'm still going now right to now with times a year and I spent three months there. I'm on at a time and the reason I go is because the job is not finished and I'm not sure that anything was done to help help. Should something like this happen again. And we know it's possible because of the location of eighty four quake. Tell me about the work that you've been doing in the time that you've been returning well immediately. Eighty left another quake What we did was we stayed in cuddle prints and for two years we? We built a hospital where we will invo with McMaster muster. Ns Andrews System with the Minister of Health. We're going to create a hospital that would be a model for University Teaching Hospital in Haiti after the earthquake we continue with this program and with the help the Fund headphone Hamilton area. We rebuild the hospital that was forty percent destroyed destroyed and brought it to a good standard and create other programs. What are the difficulties being faced in trying to make the I mean that sounds like real progress but in trying to make make further progress in in your visits there well? Presently we no longer in Puerto Prints and this has to do with the political instability of Haiti with change of political Michael regime. So we're no longer welcome to that hospital so that you know just to be longer welcome at the hospital. We were no longer welcome to that hospital. Despite by despite the fact that you helped rebuild the hospital yes yes and that's okay. That's fine we we move on and and what what have done. I've I've mostly the northwest part of Haiti presently in the area where I was born in the same hospital where I was born. We were building up to become a hospital that would be good regional hospital catchment area of eight hundred thousand and there's not really much care there so we building that up and what I liked with that hospital is whoa religious affiliated hospital. It has a Canadian flavor to it. We provide care to everyone coming whether they can pay or not. And and that's the only hospital there with the twenty four hour emergency care so we were thankful for that as a very good thing and we're hoping to develop their and and continue with that what we couldn't finishing buttocks you talked earlier about how this is personal for you yes. It's a calling as a physician to go in and I and save people and ensure that suffering is alleviated but but as a Haitian that this is personal for you and I'm just wondering how you see the country now personally personally not as a doctor but personally a decade after the earthquake. Well IT'S A. It's a country. Still struggling to define itself politically socially economically comically. And Somehow. I'm saddened by the fact that we all rate mind that have come from Haiti. That are in Haiti. That hasn't been a sense sense of where people can sit down and reflect and for the whole to embrace that a comprehensive approach to help this country thank on the the most of the head that counted country has been disappointing in that because they've never delivered truly a good out something that will be helpful to the people and the people themselves are still in the similar. They've been forever when you heading back willing First Week of March I wish you the best of luck. It's a great pleasure to talk to you doing important work. Well thank you very much for. We'll give me the opportunity to thank you for what you do and Continue the good work itself as well. Dr Alexander define is an anesthesiologist with Saint Joseph's healthcare in Hamilton Ontario.
