"And so many thousand emails. He lost track. that's insane. yeah michael it. it's if absolutely crazy. I've never seen anything like it. And and you know understandably customers getting frustrated because we can't get there fast enough but we literally are working around the clock to try to get to as many houstonians we can okay so if you let me walk through a couple of scenarios. Somebody hasn't turned their water. Main back all back on. They turned it off at the road. They don't know if they're pipes froze and they can't wait on you to get there. What should they do. Yeah i mean. I wouldn't go without any without water any longer. Michael without turning back on to see if there's a problem now it's really important when you go to the meter and turn it on. It's just a quarter turn to get the meter back on. But it's important not to do that when you're alone in the home so if you go to the meter turn it on fully. By the time you get into the house and check around you could have a disaster on your hand. So i would say get some friends get some neighbors. Go to your meter. Turn the water on barely. Just turn it on and milk so you hear of water starting to go through the meter and check around the house. Have your friends. Neighbors walk around the house particularly if you know. There's pipes and outside walls for example. If you outside fostered on the wall there certainly pipe running down that wall so you know what we've seen over the last week as people turn water on walk into the house and by the time they get in there. They've got a flood on their own. So be very careful turning it on and if you have friends or neighbors helping just ask them to listen and look. Look up to the ceilings. Look at the walls. Listen for the sound of water running and If everything seems okay turn it on a little bit more. Keep checking then turn it on fully and even you turn it on slowly and nothing happens in terms of you. Don't see league certainly keep checking if your mobile enough to get into the attic even if you can only you don't trust yourself walking across those joys just stand on the addicts. There's and listen because you'll hear elite quickly as you can say michael. That's what we're advising people to do. Right now ramon wants to know. He has a traditional builders home and he used to weigh three eighty but now he's to twenty s he's safe to walk across the joys along the so long as the nimble enough to step from joyce he's real he was nimble it three eighty surprisingly nimble all right so somebody had a busted pipe. They know that they went out. Turned off the water main. The pipe froze They're waiting on the plumber to get there. There is nothing short of the plumber. Getting there they can do or is there. Now there's really not like You know we don't encourage homeowner temporary repairs like seen some crazy repairs over the last week. You know rover hoses between pilot People wrapping rove around a pipe and putting clamps on it You know we just don't encourage that because it will certainly fail and You know i know. It's not nice half the way for a plumber but but really waiting for the plumber to get there is is the You know th the right thing to do. The other thing is many of our customers. Michael are loyal and what we're telling customers. This week is look where we're so back up. Take their i offer you get to take it from plumber. So long as you say like he's qualified texas for you because it. I've never seen anything like it. This isn't something i mean. It really is if you could go back and tell people nine ten days ago what to do to prepare for the freeze that we couldn't have imagined we would get to that extent. What are some some things people could have done. Yeah i'll tell you what. I don a my house michael is. I turned the water off. And and you know i failed bathtubs with water so i could flush toilet I had got plenty of drink water in advance. Then turn the water off for forty nine ers daddy's the only way people called me and asked about running water in the think and and doing all these things to prevent the freeze. Yes on a normal freeze. All that stuff works at their level of temperatures. We had when i was going to drop into the teens. I starting to encourage people to turn water off at the meter but then make sure your rain. The pipework you've got to open every faucet and drain the pipework and that is the only way to avoid elite. I've got about thirty seconds salaun. Are you encouraging people to go in and do anything different as they make these repairs that might that might survive twenty five degrees in the future in the michael. It's not enough just to make the repair at the hype from this time. If we ever get a repeat it will freeze again. So when the pipe is is repaired insulated. Insulate as much as you can protect yourself in the future and that's inside and outside inside and outside yeah right allen. O.'neil abacus plumbing and electrical.

Why did so many Victorian healthcare workers get infected?
"So if you think back to the second wave in victoria. One of the biggest problems was the number of healthcare workers who got seek. We saw more than three and a half thousand people who worked in healthcare catching carbon and approved really difficult to get the healthcare system back under control again. so norman. what went wrong there. And maybe take us back to the the very origins of coronavirus in victoria. And how we we came to see so many people get sick so there are two aspects to this in terms of healthcare workers. What was the aged care. Well over one hundred h residential care facilities and a lot of that. Those statistics in terms of three thousand five hundred were aged care workers in this kind of easy to understand how would happen in an age residential. Care because it's more like a home in a hospital and it just ran out of control and the fact that it was it was in so many care settings was there was just thing going wrong in that setting the real dilemma was. Why were there so many well over. A thousand healthcare workers infected in hospitals in victoria and some hospitals had hundreds and hundreds of people on furlough. What went wrong now. Western health which was run by professor infectious disease areas. Run by professor marion. Qena you've been overseas for time. Came back she really tried to run down what what went wrong. Because they got very few. In fact west there was only one infection in the first wave which was an abattoir worker. And then they were of hit by this truck which was in healthcare workers getting -ffected in the second wave and they were doing intensive contact tracing and trying to find out what was going on. They trained people in p. p. but it was only in a d and see you when you got the rest of the hospital there and it was in the rest of a hospital where they had their problem so today.

This was a nurse who had extensive prolonged in room exposure. A win. There was a patient who was in a pre-symptomatic phase admitted for work related injury from cedar meets.

Galapagos Island Shark Population In Danger From Overfishing
"Sharks in the Galapagos Islands are being decimated by fleets of fishing vessels many of them Chinese and that's bringing these vital creatures to the brink of extinction. Turn is a professor of biology at the. San Francisco Kiko in Ecuador and he's advocating for an expansion of protected waters in the area to save the sharks and he joins us now professor her welcome to the program. Thank you. It's great to be here. I understand fleets of international ships many of them. Chinese. Come to these waters every year and they're they're now what brings them. Well the waters off Galapagos and just in this region of very, very productive Galapagos islands are in a big obstacle in the middle of the ocean. So there's a deep cold water current that's flowing from the West and when it hits, the abacus platform is diverted at the surface and that creates a lot of productivity. So we get very rich fishing grounds and also fantastic biodiversity. How many ships are there? How many sharks are there? And you know what is this situation? Exactly as it stands at the moment, will galapagos is home to about thirty odd species of sharks, and some of those are critically endangered such as the scalloped hammerhead shark, and some of those are also highly migratory, the scalloped hammerhead, the Silky Shark, the whale shark, they all leave the borders of the marine reserve, and then they're subject to different levels of threat. So these vessels come into these waters and while they're fishing for other species, they catch these sharks in their nets. Yes depending on the method of fishing the longliners perhaps the vessels that we would be concerned about these are extensively fishing for tuna, but they will also catch several endangered shark species. During their fishing. And we know that if they do catch these species than they will retain them and keep them on board. So. These vessels though we should be clear aren't doing anything illegal they are allowed to fish with fishing. So why exactly are shark populations still taking a hit right? These vessels operating in international waters and depending on the fleet, they'll be operating under a regional fisheries organisations. The problem is that the species that we're trying to protect in Galapagos don't understand any of that. They go whether they WANNA go. As the problem is that once they leave the protective waters of the marine reserve, they're immediately under threat. There are hammerhead foraging grounds out in international waters and numbers have declined. There was a study cocoa sign, which is our neighbor in Galapagos, and they found that hammerhead sharks have declined by about forty five percent since the creation of the marine reserve, which is not the result you would hope for. So what you're advocating for an expansion of Ecuador's marine reserves, right that would help protect these areas of marine diversity and also. The. Shark. Species. I'm advocating on several levels I think first of all, we need to expand our reserve and this is something that we can do as a nation within our jurisdiction but I think we also need to play a more prominent role in the development of the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction Agreement that is currently in the works, and this will allow for better protection for these species. Once they're in the high seas, it will even allow for the creation of open water or high seas, marine protected areas. So I think we to work on several levels. The international waters needs to be considered in a more conservation perspective than they have been until now. Alex. is a professor of biology at the. San Francisco, they keep in Ecuador Professor Arun. Thank you very much. Thank you.
Calculate Your Value
"This morning as me and our three-year-old were about to do math I told him to get the abacus. Has Stall Tactics telling me about dinosaurs T. REX's digital Alex. Lions elephants in like. But not, today, we sat on the SOFA. And as unprepared to slide the beats of the epic is over. He said to me mom you Miss Your Dad I. Do I reply with a rhetorical yet affirmative of course I miss my dad in my head that's what I wanted to say. But I said in just listened. Yeah because he's in heaven I miss him to. Our son's three. My Dad was killed in. Nineteen. ninety-one they've never met. Not here on this earth. In the physical round in the spiritual realm I'm not sure what that can counter was like took that question away. We went on about our day we played. We ate lunch there was no further mention of my dad. It wasn't until put them down for NAP and I began prepping for dinner that a song came on. What we have is much more than they can see. I'm not sure what the trigger was. But it reminded me of being in middle school seventh grade walking around the track looking up into the sky saying if I could project site into the heavens. Just to see my dad. I know it sounds crazy. But that was my middle school mind. It took me a few years to grapple with the understanding of what happened. It was so traumatic. So instant. into the tears flowed tears of joy though because see our son was doing a math of his own. What I was focused on was the present value. The present value of how I felt at that time I was happy. I was totally not even thinking about my dad. But Isaiah. He was. Focused on. The future value. How I would feel in the future how he knew I'm not sure but he did. And, that's what I want to tell you today God is focused on. Your future value. Don't worry about the. Subtracting in dividing that you did in the past. Diminished value don't worry about that. God is focused on your future value. He's adding up all of your future value banking on you. He has bank on you so much so That he sent his son Jesus. So, much so that he sit his son Jesus. Many would say. It was a subcontractor as he hung on that cross. But I say. He was adding the value. Of each of our lives. Is No coincidence that the cross. Looks like an addition sign. because. God. was adding value.
When To Sell Stocks: How Long Should You Hold Your Winners?
"First question comes from Peter. Hi Allison love the show both Motley fool answers in the Museum of fine. Art are both abbreviated. Fa coincidence. I mean I'd probably Ryan grows. Wouldn't you agree this class last as it get? Yeah I've heard quote someone on the show. Call Him Robert say that money should be invested in stocks. Only if it won't be needed for at least five years. How does this work? What if I don't need my money for six years? Should I invested in stocks but after one year goes by that means. I need the money in five years so by Robert's rule it shouldn't be invested in stocks anymore. Investing for one year only seems really risky. Well I'll speak for Robert here and to you and point out that I'm actually pretty squishy on this. Sometimes they say five years I say three to five years partially because I think it does depend on the situation in the individual and it also depends on history so. Let's look at some historical numbers fleas so using data from the website. Nyu FINANCE PROFESSOR ASKS. Waft mortaring equity professor. When I was that he was my equity valuation. Professor like it was difficult. It was a lot of math and back. Then we didn't really have a lot of like calculators and stuff just slide rule and abigail advocates on fire. Well anyway so I pulled out my abacus and I calculated the percentage of instances over different holding periods with stock market made money stock Martin meaning. Us Life got stocks from nine hundred. Twenty eight thousand nineteen so for a one year holding period. The market makes money seventy-three percent time so three out of four years. It's pretty good. Three years eighty three percent of the time. Five years eight percent time so not a big difference between the three and five years ten years. It's ninety four percent twenty years one hundred percent so the longer you hold on you are more likely to make money but even a ten year holding period isn't guarantee that you're gonNA make money so if I were really looking at a hypothetical six year holding period my first question would be. How much have I already saving? Is it almost enough to cover the cost? If I've already saved most of what I need I probably wouldn't take a whole lot of risk with it That said if I needed a little extra growth and I had six years I would probably make sort of A. It doesn't have to be an all or nothing decision. I would probably put it mostly in stocks but gradually reduced the stock exposure as I got closer to the point where when I was two or three years away it probably would be mostly in bonds and CDs and this is what I do with my kids college Savings once they got into high school even now that my son is in college a little bit of it is in the stock market but not all of it. Yeah I do you remember a couple years ago. I asked you advice about the college situation. What I decided to do was put two years of college into cash and then after one year went away I put another year in cash so there was always two years of rolling cash available. Because I didn't if the market crash paying for college could have been dicey. It was very painful to take out two years of college because I don't know if you've noticed colleges experiments expense to the market and just have it sit in some you know. Low interest. Bearing account was not the most fun thing in the world. But you know what it did. Reduce my stress a lot. Because I just didn't have to worry about Ron. What's your longest held? Position Investor owned Disney stock for about eighteen years. Oh Wow yeah it's awesome. It's been it's been good to me so far string of the eagles over the weekend said if you ever go to.

'Total devastation': Hurricane slams parts of the Bahamas
"Will thank heavens hurricane Dorian is finally moving off the Bahamas it just sat there moving like a mile an hour over the whole Bahamas and they got hit really bad there was a life threatening storm surge of up to fifteen feet expected on grand Bahama island and Floridians were freaking out I have family in you know fort Lauderdale and clear water in you know not knowing if the hurricane was going to start moving towards Florida move out to sea I will I am blown away at how they could predict hurricane movement and they predicted that after the bombers it was going to make a right turn I mean it made a beeline it was going to do west I mean street west and then. it's stalled and rather than moving towards Florida is designed to make a right turn and now it is moving up the coast. but still gave huge punches to the Bahamas there's a door is when the tent city has backed off now it's down to a category two I thought I saw just recently was a three still but I think they just downgraded to a two. but now we're worried about the Florida Atlantic coast parts Georgia the Carolinas and even southeast Virginia. and so right now it's still near grand Bahama island the eye wall is pummel the island since Sunday night destructive winds catastrophic storm surge some of the pictures are coming in the Bahamas it is devastated just devastated. it basically had the bombs for over forty eight hours started the apple goes island Sunday morning. settlement point had sustained winds of sixty one miles an hour gusting up to eighty two miles per hour. and right now I believe the speed is down to about a hundred twenty miles per hour of the actual hurricane. and now Florida coast is scenes of destructive damage because of I mean it's about eighty miles from the coast and so you know the waves are huge. beach erosion has already Curtis flats at Flagler beach. National Weather Service weather channel meteorologist Jim Cantore document a damaged homes on Hutchinson island why because of pounding surf squall from out of perfume Dorian continue to wrap into parts of the Florida peninsula. because one visit force winds there now miles an hour arrived at Juno beach Florida. that's going to continue with gusts over sixty miles per hour to Tuesday outer rain bands are also still you know flooding the area and we could possibly have tornadoes along the coast so we have hurricane warnings right now in effect in Florida from Jupiter inlet to punch Verde beach including Mel born in Daytona beach Florida the warning is now but extended to South Carolina from north of at least beach to south Santee river in a hurricane warning still remains in effect for grand Bahama the abacus islands northwestern Bahamas include Freeport and grand Bahama. so hurricane warnings meaning that hurricane force winds remember category one is seventy four miles an hour so hurricane warnings mean that those winds are either already Corinne or expected somewhere within the warning area and that's going to be within a thirty six hour time frame. so a storm surge warning has been issued from land Tampa Florida to south Santee river South Carolina and that includes Daytona beach Jacksonville beach St Simons Tybee island Charleston South Carolina. so you know you would you would watch the weather I was I was glued to the weather channel all weekend and you would see people. walking behind a meteorologist sorry. I don't want to laugh at all because you know what people were doing they were trying to recreate those videos that are online have you guys seen those videos where you have. meteorologist reporters that are trying to look like they're holding on. and you know to find the winds and trying to you know hold their balance and they're screaming in the wind and then you see people walk behind them with an ice cream cone and wave like high. I right or you know I think there was one reporter that tried to claim this weekend that bodes in Florida were already push the shore by the storm. add their all these things being pushed on to the beach and you actually saw the votes are all tied up neatly and it was nice people walking by and you know even in you know smile and things like that and so clearly there's a lot of like you know whether reporting gone wrong people in a boat there's one I forget was one of those Kitty current but somebody was in a boat looking like she had to paddle around and then somebody walked right by her. in a single deep water. it all and then so it you know we know that you know the weather channel these meteorologist they have a job to do and storms are life threatening and they need to get people out and so they're not gonna show a person in a nice dry area tell everybody it's scary they're going to kind of show you know what they need pictorials because some people they just don't evacuate they just leave. Floridians a lot of them did not evacuate them they you know they were waiting for the hurricane advisory to blows my mind that the same age we could be that accurate I mean we were actually it was I was like I don't see how it's going to head towards Florida's commit towards Florida. so you don't think that it didn't hit Florida unfortunately you have that whole coast. that could get hit you know there's an argument that averages one across Florida in a day. we would cause less damage then riding up the coast to Jacksonville Charleston Wilmington Hatteras so the you know so you know we think it's going to be hitting and not really leaving are closed until Sunday heading areas near main and etcetera and at it's a battle on this was bad five people dead so far we're gonna be unfortunately hearing more as the crews are able to get into the Bahamas fully understand the devastation was just enormous this week as NASA but the nation week a lot of people in the Bahamas and Florida you know can't donate blood the Carolinas etcetera because a worried about the the storm and and blood shortages are expected that to happen especially after the bad summer NASA but the nation because the first week of September and as for governors from across United States United to you know help

A Mathematician, The Last Supper, And The Birth Of Accounting
"Our show. Today is an interview with Jane Gleeson white. She wrote a book a few years back called double entry how the merchants of Venice created modern finance Jane has an accounting degree. And she just got obsessed with this topic. And one of the first thing she pointed out to us is that in order to have accounted, there really is something else that you need. I you need to have numbers. And when our story takes place is the fourteen hundreds much of Europe is still using these Roman numerals. I you know, I thought Roman numerals must have gone out the Roman empire but neither lasted well into the renaissance. So the problem with Roman numerals as any schoolchild knows if they've tried to work with them is you can't adult subtract with them, you have to that, just that just like a written language for recording numerals. So you do anything with them. So they're these recording. The minimize will cover them into rock. That's how useful there. Well, we still do that, too in Jacob. Think about it, right. Say you have four hundred and twenty six. Pounds of pepper. And you want to write that down. You would write down. I had to look this up. CD X, X V, I, which is not useful. It is really just like you're writing out four hundred and twenty six in words. Like. F. O. U. R. H U, N D or. Got it. And, you know, so imagine if you're writing it out and words and you want to do math with that. You know, quick what's LX I x? Plus x y. I have no idea. It has an end was really complicated for merchants because like if someone wants to buy a certain amount of pepper corns from you or will, how much was that gonna cost that required some math and Jane says that was a problem? So with the Roman numerals, they had to have what they called an Abacus, but it's not the sort of Abacus. We think of today, the Abacus was bored of sand with pebbles on it in the columns of the unit. So that was used for the adding and subtracting. So the bankers and merchants set around the squares with the Abacus adding, and subtracting prices and quantities. But then they had to record the results of the psalms in Roman numerals in a scroll, and so there was no connection between the working the mathematical working and the result. So the two things was separated were, and there was no trace of the procedures that had gone on before, you know, the additional the subtraction on math tests when they say show your work. There's no way anybody can ever show there that you can't show the working which meant that you couldn't really tell you know, if they'd been an era or not. But around this time merchants in Europe are picking up on something that's being used over in the Middle East Arabic numerals, these are one do three four five. You know what we all use today? Jin mentions. One philosopher, in Europe, who said, hey, these numerals their super powerful, every, every scholar should be learning them, but the church, actually accused the guy of practicing magic and sentenced him to life in prison. So this was like a big controversial development for the merchants though. These numerals were just super super useful. It was this new way for them to understand and track. What was going on in their businesses and the center of business at the time in Europe was a crazy, exciting and decadent place, Venice than his in that day, was, I think the equivalent of Silicon Valley and New York all sort of wrapped up together everything was happening in Venice. It was an incredibly wealthy trading. Center much from all over the world from England from Germany from Holland from the Middle East. The merchants set the international exchange rates for the whole of Europe and Asia. So it was a quivalent to Wall Street, but it also is the center of a brand new industry, which was the printing press, you write that it was smelly. There was malaria. It was known as being sexually excessive. Yeah. Because of the swamps, it was excessively stinky. And they used to put incense and perfume around the canals to try and reduce the smell, which probably, I'm sure any minute worse. It was a place of decadent excess people had also it's of strange illnesses, as well as malaria, which the physicians put down to sexual excess, so, you know, once more, I give you Manhattan. Then is at this time it has become the center of this huge trading network. You know, it's no longer just like little merchants selling flour to the Baker down the street things are coming on ships, and they're coming in from the Middle East and going out to England. It's really this kind of global hub, and trading is getting commerce is getting much more complex businesses are issuing letters of credit instead of actually shipping. Physical gold and merchants in Venice to keep track of all this. They're starting to use a very sophisticated system of accounting, the origins of this are kind of obscure, it seems like the first known use of it is around thirteen hundred. But at this moment in Venice, it is really starting to take off at the time, it was known as Venetian bookkeeping today, we call it double entry bookkeeping, and that phrase double entry that means that everything you do it gets entered in two different places. And so to just do an example of this say, you're a spice trader and you have one hundred dollars in cash and fifty dollars worth of pepper and you sell say ten dollars worth. Pepper. So you right. One entry in your pepper account showing that now you have ten dollars less pepper. And then you write another entry in your cash account showing that now you have ten dollars more in cash. So this double entry thing, it basically lets you see what's going on, in all of your different accounts. And at the end of the day or the month of the year, it lets you check all that all those pluses and minuses they should balance out. That's the double entry part. But really the key thing about double entry bookkeeping. It's the bookkeeping part, you know, it's, it's a system of precise system for keeping track of everything that's going on in your business, and it's hard to imagine. But Jane says that really did not exist before this previously, the prophet was either in kind you know, so you had three extra cows at the end of your period, with, with w bookkeeping it was obstructed into hod numbers that you could compare with other periods and really know that you had increased Joe wealth by two percent, rather than buy three cars, which is, you know, much. The measure and you can see when you have currency and you have animal skins, and you have wall and you have whatever I mean if you imagine a universe, where people are just keeping track of that by writing in their diary, which is what they were doing before. I have this. I have that I bought this. I saw that. And they're just sort of writing notes all day, the end of the year. Would I mean you have your notebook, but it's sort of a nightmare to imagine trying to figure out if you made money if you lost money, what, what parts of your business made or less money? Yeah. Absolutely. That was the other benefit of dominant. She bookkeeping that you could itemize the prophets in h account. So you knew which, which, as you say, which products you doing well, and in which you want, and then you can start to think about how you would change your business activities. I think it just became for one of the better would much more scientific
Inside Aaron Sorkin's 'Mockingbird' story
"Playwright and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin says he was eager to adapt. Harper Lee's to kill a Mockingbird for Broadway. But he still had some serious. Reservations about the job. I said yes, knowing really it was a suicide mission because people have a very special relationship to the novel. And it's a great book. What could I do but make it less than than what it was? And the acting future of Jesse smollet is still unknown. But his character on empire just made TV history all that up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn when Tony nominations are revealed next week to kill a Mockingbird will likely get a lot of attention almost certainly for Jeff Daniels who plays Atticus Finch, but the adaptation by earned Sorkin was far from easy. Scott Rudin secured, the rights to the patient and got Harper Lee's personal approval of Sorkin. It's the playwright. But then things started to go awry following Lee's death three years ago the estate eventually sued to stop the production. We'll get to the lawsuit in a bit. But when I spoke with Sorkin about to kill a Mockingbird. He I told me why his first draft didn't work. I simply try to do. No harm. I I took the most essential scenes that you need to tell the story, and I stood them up and dramatize them and the whole thing felt like a greatest hits album done by tribute band. And I turned it in and Scott who usually at that point. Would meet with me for days and ended up with hundreds of notes to go back and do the second draft with he met with me for less than thirty minutes and gave me two notes. And the second note was the one that changed everything. What Scott said was that Atticus can't be advocates from the beginning of the play to the end of the play. He's got a change. That's what protagonist does a protagonist has a flaw protagonist put through something and changes as a result. And I thought well, of course, Scott's right? That has to be what happens in a play. I wonder how Harper Lee got away with an Abacus who's the same. At the beginning of the book is at the end of the book, how Horton Foote got away with an Atticus in the movie who's the same at the beginning of the movie is the is at the end of the movie. And that's when I realized that advocates isn't the protagonist in the novel or the movie scout is she's the one who changes her flaws that she's young and the changes that she loses someone for innocence. And while I wanted scout. And dill to remain protagonists in the play. I wanted advocates to be the central protagonist. I wanted him to be put through something. I wanted him to have a flaw on. I wanted him to change is a result. And what happened in that moment was that? I simply stopped thinking about the word adaptation that it. No longer was my goal to gently swallow the novel in bubble wrap and transfer it to a Broadway stage that I was going to write a new play taking the circumstances that Harper Lee put on the table. And that's when things started to take off. So I'm gonna ask you this. Obviously, it's a period piece. But I'm gonna talk about it's modern relevance of which there is a tremendous amount. What was happening in the world as you were adapting or reimagining, but ever we're gonna do whatever verb are gonna use to describe what you were doing with harp. Elise novel to make it a play. Yeah. Well, what was happening in the world. Was Trump was elected president Charlottesville was happening. Charlottesville became an important touchdown in this. And I'll tell you why Atticus in the in the novel. This was in thinking about what flaw can Atticus half. Does he go from being a bad lawyer to a good lawyer, a bad father to a loving father a racist believing injustice in a quality, and obviously no on all three? What I realized was that Atticus already had a flaw. Harper Lee gave him one. It's just that. When we were learning the book, we were taught that it was a virtue advocates says throughout the book that there's goodness in every single chicks, go get along better with all kinds of folks never really understand it until you consider things from his point of view. Climates out of his skin woke rounding he excuses. Bob, Buell's racism by saying the man just losses WPA job. You know, it's he excuses. Mrs Dubose is racism by she recently stopped taking her medicine or morphine. He excuses. The town's racism. This is the deep south things happen slower here, you know, give gift people time and thinking about all that at the same time at Charlottesville happened in it started. What Atticus was saying was starting to sound to me like there were fine people on both sides. Right. And that's when the bells rang, and and I was really able to kind of go from a walk to a gallop. We're talking with earned Sorkin about his ad obtain of Harper Lee's novel to kill a Mockingbird. I wanna play a scene between Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson who's been accused of raping a white woman. And the story can't tell you how to plead, but I can't. And I must give you my best advice. You won't be my lawyer. Very less thing. I won't the world be your lawyer right now negro man, what teenage girl wouldn't be going in with a win hands. But I'm compelled to defend us an officer of the court, and in that capacity of taken Salamo to give him a best council, which is that you cannot and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. So how do you figure out a way to dramatize what Atticus is going through? And how he's changing the way that he sees an excuses behavior through the play. What tricks? What are the things that you are able to do with the text and through new dialogue and putting dialogue and other characters mouse, they get you to that place where he can evolve for me, a big part of Attica ses journey in this play is going from someone who says, I know these people these are our, friends and neighbors sure some of them may be stuck in the old ways. But there are none of them that are so far gone. They would send an obviously innocent man to the electric chair, and he discovers that he doesn't know his friends and neighbors that to me does a really good job of of reflecting. I think how a lot of us no matter where you are on the political or ideological spectrum the way, a lot of us have felt these last few years that we thought we knew our fellow Americans. But we didn't we were wrong about our friends and neighbors, and that's one of the reasons why this play based on a book that sixty years old that takes place ninety years ago feels so much like today.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be indicted on corruption charges
"Israel last night. The attorney general announced his intention to indict prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery fraud and breach of trust. When then Yahoo becomes the first sitting prime minister of Israel to be indicted, pending a hearing for criminal offenses Roger McShane Middle East editor, and it's happening less than sixty days before an election. Exactly as Mr Netanyahu alleged to have done. So the potential charges stem from three cases, I you have case one thousand where he's alleged received expensive gifts from wealthy patrons in return for political favors. Then you have case two thousand where he sent to discuss colluding with the newspaper publisher he was going to curb one of their papers competitors in return that paper was gonna tone down its negative coverage of him and the mysterious cases case four thousand in which she's accused of intervening and regulatory decisions in favor of a company called basic and one of the websites that basic owns was going to provide glowing coverage in return, right? And how strong is the case against him. The cases would seem to be pretty strong. They've been in the works for three years, some of Mr. Netanyahu's closest aides have turned state witness, and you have an attorney general Abaci mandalit who was appointed by Netanyahu who was once Netanyahu's. Cabinet secretary. This isn't a man who seems to be out to get Netanyahu. He's quite deliberative. And I don't think he would take a shot at a sitting prime minister if he thought he was going to miss, and what does Mr Netanyahu have to say about all this. So he says he's completely innocent. He says investigations are going to collapse like a house of cards. He calls the witch hunt. He says the reports are corruption are fake news. Is this sounds a little bit familiar? Yes. There are a lot of people who say that Netanyahu's adopting the rhetoric of Trump. In fact, Netanyahu was was first to adopt this type of rhetoric. He's long been able to harness the politics of resentment for his own political gain. He says division and Stokes fear in order to whip up his supporters, and frankly, he's much better at it than Donald Trump. What happens next end this pending a hearing stuff? So legally Netanyahu's lawyers will have a chance to dispute decision. That seems unlikely to six. Exceed then you'll get formal charges, and then you'll get a trial, politically, we're going to have an election on April ninth and right now Netanyahu's coalition of right-wing and nationalist parties, which still probably get a majority in the next Knesset. But a new party a centrist party called blue and white is leading in the polls, and is gaining it would seem, but a lot can change before election day, and probably will Roger thanks very much. Thank you. This news of the planned indictment comes just as Mr Netanyahu was hoping to win another election and become Israel's longest serving prime minister. He spent a total of thirteen years leading the country, and is known for his grandiose speeches together, we've transformed bludgeoned Jewish people left for dead into a vibrant, thriving nation defending itself with the courage of modern mccabe's, some of his critics say he has a belligerent foreign policy has fostered prejudice among Israelis and that he's been intransigent on the issue of seeking peace with Palestinians. UCLA? Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN in two thousand fifteen blamed mister Netanyahu for undermining efforts toward a two state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Assess to shut up. So how has mister Netanyahu changed Israel during his long rule? I think BB more than reshaping Israel has put Israel much more on a path towards being a divided successful yet, very exhibitions and almost info big society. Actual Feffer has written a biography of Mr Netanyahu and reports for the economist from Israel Netanyahu is unique so far in being the only prime minister of Israel to have been born after the state's foundation his formative years both as a teenager and young men were made in the United States. And then in many ways form the way, he makes politics, what can you tell me about his early life and how that shaped his politics later? Well, he was brought up in a very political home. His father was an ideologue and a journalist working for the revisionist movement, which is the branch of the right wing branch of Zionism. And that was the atmosphere which shouldn't and yeah, it was brought up and that was fear of very bleak. Nationalist, politics, and how did his political career start? Well, listen ya'll be became into the public eye at a relatively young age as the brother of Israel's great hero in ninety seventy six Colonel Jonathan to who was killed in the famous Entebbe raid and his brother was the only Israeli soldier killed in that, right? He was one of the commanders of that. Right. And that thrust the family into the into the public spotlight over the next few years as part of the commemoration of the dead, brother. They they set up a think tank and BB became a speaker on issues of counter-terrorism and at the young age of thirty two he was offered to become the number two at Israel's embassy in Washington five years later when he left when he left it lower c- to become a full-time liquid politician. He already had quite a high, name recognition and Israel. He had a very polished television. Performance. We not that many Israeli politicians had that time. Tell me about that. How did he come to have that polish wasn't the now's diplomatic and political roles before becoming Likud leader were involved in presenting Israel's case to the world. His main political role was as a deputy foreign minister and his brief was was made public diplomacy. That was the time of the first Gulf war and the scene that everyone remembers from that from that period isn't into now sitting in the C N N CNN's local studio in Jerusalem. Deputy foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is here with us during this rate Sumitomo and the into we're both sitting wearing gas masks during an air raid. I must say that this is the darnest way to conduct an interview and during his periods and power Wednesay had the most impact the main period, we continue I really has formed. Current Israel has been the last ten years in which he's been in power. He's won three consecutive elections in that time, and it's been a decade for for many aspects, a great decade for Israel. Israel's had uninterrupted economic growth. It's foreign relations of burgeon with countries from Africa to up to the theories to Latin America, even even Sunni Arab countries in the Middle East, which don't have diplomatic relations with Israel have improved that under the under the surface ties with Israel. They have a joint interest together into now in confronting Iran. For the first time in my lifetime. Many other states in the region. Recognize that Israel is not their enemy. They recognize that Israel is the ally. How have mister Netanyahu's US towards the Palestinians of all over? The course of his political career is used to have not vote in the course of his political career. If you read a book Netanyahu wrote twenty six years ago place among the nations, he explains then this was even before the Oslo process began he explains that the best solution for Israel is never to compromise with the Palestinians and allow them at the most to live in a semi autonomous and Claes in the West, Bank and Gaza never to allow them full state and to continue Israeli security control over the entire region. And as we've seen over the last ten years with into now in power he has paid lip service to the two-state solution. But in reality is nothing to go to good to go towards that solution, certainly not since Trump and to the White House. So a lot of. Have gone his way, but we're looking to an uncertain future here with us in indictment. If this is the end of his political career, what do you think is legacy will be slowly building and continuing to enhance Israel's perspective and military power. And it's relationships both in the region and across the world. Now, if it is forced to resign that legacy will still we'll still remain the other legacy of toxic buying relations between the different communities within Israel will certainly need detoxifying once. He leaves.
What Does It Mean To Be A Liberal? A Canadian Perspective
"And all of us. Has Justin Trudeau changed. The identity of what it means to call yourself a liberal in Canada today. I think he has or he's at he's at least shifted that identity who are the people in the Justin Trudeau government who would be the who had parallel to say John Manley or Paul Martin in the old Christian government. There were always those voices of that business, liberalism blue suit liberalism corner office, liberalism, you could maybe argue the Bill more. No. And Jim Kerr are in that or in that mold that certainly in the most prominent issues and players around the Trudeau government that they're in. They're in a different zone. Right. It's true himself. Catherine McKenna Jane Philpott, they want to be dent fide with issues like feminism concern for indigenous reconciliation concern for the environment. Those are all issues that sort of activate an animate the progressive core of liberal party. Now, a lot of those younger voters who came out in two thousand fifteen and help push it over the top. To be remembered. So, you know, those issues, they're they're powerful and our emotional level. But they're also potent an on an electoral level, and are they potent for the other side too. Because certainly on the issue of immigration. We've seen recently the conservative party taking a pretty hard tack on that and trying to use statements and media opportunities that Trudeau and his team might feel really work for them against them on that issue. Couple points on that one is everywhere in the world where right wing populism has risen both in its most extreme of nauseous forums, but also in its forms that aren't as frightening. There's been an element of concern about immigration as part of the mix. It can be outright xenophobic racism, or it can be something much milder than that. But it's part of the mix for right wing populism. So I think it's kind of an obvious thing that the consider conservatives are going to want to tap into. And I think we have to be careful in not denouncing that as automatically invalid. I mean clearly there. Our re re you know, realistically, there are issues about the border in Canada right now that would didn't exist three or four years ago. They're the kind of bored across miss become routine. I call it a trick. Because I don't really think it's big enough to call it a crisis. But oh, not everyone is calling it a trickle. No, a lot of people are calling it a crisis. And and I don't think it is a crisis. But there are legitimate polcy debates there just how much is it. Valid to amp them up the way that it's being done. That's the question like just on this question vote. If we're thinking about the the degree to which the conservative play off the liberals on some of these hot button issues. I thought one of the interesting things we discovered through the Abacus research that was done was that among Canadians who say I'm a liberal. That's about twenty eight percent of the Canaan canes will identify with the party directly. They they consider this. As liberals only about a third say, they hate conservatives. They will they will buy into the term hate a third, but among conservatives that's a vote a quarter identifies. Conserve? Active about fifty percents of the hate liberals. It's the kind of animus against your opponents is greater in the conservative base than it is in the liberal base. So if we look then at the tactics of Andrew Sheeran and Justin Trudeau, I think it's fairly obvious where that's gonna tend to nudge them. Andrew Scheer wants to appeal to connect with a base that really hates liberals and Justin Trudeau needs to appeal to connect with the base that is less likely to hate conservatives. They they're obviously not serve supporters. But yeah, you know, there's a difference between one and two of your supporters saying, hey, I hate the other guys and one in three saying, it's a it's a it's a factor in both camps. But it's a bigger factor. Andrew shears camp. Give him that the conservatives can kind of point to their base not wanting to be liberal to get everybody on board. How hard is it to unite the left and Canada in the same way that kind of the right side of the spectrum seems to come together a little bit stronger with their own disagreements about liberal policy? Well, there's no question that it that the left is more is more fragmented in Canada. If you look at the polarized voters, we identified in in our in that because survey of about forty five percent of them are conservative backers. And what forty seven back one of the left of center parties, but that is scattered among liberals and peers and green so just almost by definition at some more divided group on the other hand there are moments where not just the left and centre-left in Canada. But even beyond that Trudeau has shown an ability to bring people together. And I think the most obvious example was when he sparred with Donald Trump coming out of the Charlevoix g seven summit in in June. Wherever will remember that Trump blasted off when a little Twitter tantrum after yes. The conference about Trudeau sing some frankly, fairly mild mannered things about America tariff policy. It would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty, and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July first applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us. I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing. But it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians were polite were reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. What's interesting is that that week was by far and away just as best week in the polls in two thousand eighteen this is confirmed by both liberals and on liberals at their own polling and with publicly available pulling. So you step back and say, you know, what? Happened there. Well, what happened was the generalized Canadian unease which crosses flip over go spectrum, by the way, it's kind of remarkable about Donald Trump was activated and a camper. Mr. who seemed to express a kind of moderate pro Canada point of view, wasn't a staunchly. Progressive were an opera Gusset just to kind of pro Canada. I'm defend the country's interest point of view was able to get a lot of goodwill and support on side that's kind of gift that Donald Trump gifts. But it does show that there's a big swath of the Canadian public opinion that's ready to be to to congenial. When the messaging is you know is appealing. What do you think is the biggest challenge for the left over the next nine months leading up to the election? What's what's the big thing? They have to get done if they're going to pull this off. I think that if we think about the left is being dawn, mainly the the Trudeau liberals right now, I think what they need to do is remember that. The people who support the most vigorously on Twitter who donate money to the party who show up to rallies who cheerlead on valid issues like global warming fighting climate change, like indigenous reconciliation that a lot of those people are well to the left of the seventy five percent or so of the camp population that doesn't feel their polarized either into the left or right wing. And that the messaging has to be just no matter how tempting it is to cheer to to pitch. Your message to those most active most energetic, most vocal supporters. You can't risk doing that you need to pitch your message towards mainstream Canadians who are feeling less. Sure. But which side they wanna support less certain about some of these messaging and want to hear I mean, frankly, a more nuanced middle the road kind of message. So I think that's the challenge challenges to remember that the people you wanna talk to the the most are not necessary. The people who are talking back at you on social media or showing up that rally you've got to a large group of voters there who just don't communicate that way. That's
