A Brief History of the English-American Experiment With Bill Federer

"Being the Americans, we kind of go into the private property direction, right? Yeah, so England tried a 15 year American experiment called the English Commonwealth. So the King Charles the first got defeated and 16 40 or so and got his head chopped off. In the glorious revolution. This is prior to that, but that is a key revolution in 1688. But this was like 1649 to 1660. It's called the English Commonwealth. It was an American experiment of a Commonwealth of covenant. They had no king. Oliver Cromwell refused to take the title of the king, he called himself lord protector. He did an okay job. He dies, his son, Richard, can't keep it together. And so William Penn's dad, sales he's an admiral. Sales over to Europe puts Charles the second on the throne brings him back and re Institutes the monarchy. And in exchange he gets in a state in Ireland and then he's a famous admiral and then of course his son found Pennsylvania. But so they had an American experiment for 15 years, but they brought the king back. America, because of a 3000 mile ocean, because Europe was the chessboard in America was sort of an afterthought. I mean, we lost money. It wasn't like Spanish gold anywhere. It was a loser. And because of that, the king said, look, just don't cost me any money and stay out of my hair. And so for almost a century and a half, the Americans got to practice self government, like training wheels. And that's the dilemma. We go into these countries, we get rid of Saddam Hussein. We give them a constitution identical to ours almost. And then one election cycle they vote in Sharia law. And we scratch our heads thinking gee, why didn't our farmer government work? It's like duh, they have an Islamic soil that you planted the seed in, where an America you had a predominantly judeo Christian soil. The Berlin Wall comes down. Help them set up governments almost identical to ours. It gets taken over the bly that black market, the mafia, the organized crime, we scratch our heads, thinking, why didn't it turn out like America? Well, you planted the seed in an atheistic soil. They had 70 years of atheism, right? And so it worked in America. You have seed and soil or form of governments like a genetically engineered seed, but you plant seeds in soil and the soil is a predominantly judeo Christian populace. Right. So that's why it worked in

Understanding the Geopolitics of China, Guam, and the Pacific

"Had a very senior position in defending the Pacific and I know you know this, but can you explain to people that just because China attacks Guam doesn't mean the world is ending? It's actually a likely target in a sub nuclear conflict. Am I right in saying that? I think you are to make sure that we think that they think that the Chinese have actually put together like patriotic videos of Chinese weapons systems striking Guam and showing that widely inside the country into their military. They've certainly put it on the table. And certainly it's something that we have to plan for. If they don't strike Guam and they don't strike U.S. airfields in Japan, it is going to be the U.S. will eventually have its way with the Chinese. Can you

The Russian Military's Weak NCO Corps on Display in Ukraine

"No, I want to close admiral. Last question for you. I was at the beaches of Normandy with Duane two days passed. And one of the things that stuck in my mind was the heroism, not everyone of everyone involved of the leaders of the young lieutenants of general mcnerney of general Roosevelt, but they also paid particular attention to the NCOs that America was blessed with on that day that kept the men moving towards the beaches. As you take that in mind, how is the Ukrainian NCO core performed in this? I know their leadership at the top has been excellent, but as you watch as a trained military observer of every aspect of a military leadership, as your eye fallen on their NCOs, it has and here we have NATO and the west have really had extraordinary impact as follows. The Russian model of war military degrades the importance of the NCO core. It is all very officer driven because they want highly centralized control of everything. They don't want to delegate. They don't want, if you will, free market combat, where younger leaders are capable of moving out with their squad with their platoon under the leadership of a strong NCO.

Charlie Kirk Details Being Banned From Twitter

"So I'm banned from Twitter, everybody. If you haven't heard. So we're going to walk through that. I actually haven't spoken very much about it publicly to podcasts or two on it. And it's on a very interesting thing. So the way Twitter works, if you don't know, if you violate one of their guidelines, they give you an opportunity to delete the tweet. Basically, okay, engaged in hate speech, you can get your Twitter account back. And so we logged onto our Twitter account, we're like, wait, why don't we have access to our Twitter account anymore? So I tweeted this out and I want to just anyone to tell me if there's anything inaccurate about this tweet. Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family, he transitioned to being a woman in 2011, Joe Biden then appointed Levine to be a four star admiral and is now USA Today has named Rachel Levine as woman of the year true where the feminists, right? Perfectly factual, but now I engaged in something called dead naming. Are you familiar with this phenomenon? No, I had to learn it alongside. Everyone else, including our millions of followers. So dead naming is when you use the name that used to exist of someone who's trans. And super politically incorrect, I guess. You're like not even allowed to mention the birth name anymore. It's now called dead naming. So I guess you can't call like Muhammad Ali cassius clay anymore. Or anyone who's ever changed their name ever. And so because of this Twitter basically says, okay, you're no longer allowed to have access to your account. You have to acknowledge and bend the knee and tell the rest of the world that you engaged in hate speech. And there's just like big red button that says, you can press delete. And look, it's very tempting. You know, we used to do a lot on Twitter. And I thought to myself, you know what, every single semester, I'm traveling, I'm talking to college kids telling them to hold the line that it's worth the cost that you might lose Friends. I'm like, what a hypocrite, I would be. If I just press that red button and told Twitter, like, you know, I did something wrong. Meanwhile, keep fighting on campus, everybody, and see you later. You know what? No, actually

Boris Johnson Chimes in on Transgender Debate

"Has said he does not think quote biological mail should be competing in women's sports. A prime minister said the sensible view was the transgender athletes. Such as Leah Thomas, as swimmer, who won America's top trophy and university sports last month, should not be allowed to compete as alongside biological women, and that children should not be allowed to decide their own gender without parental assistance. His most comprehensive comments yet on transgender issues come today's after the government decided not to ban trans conversion therapy. As the Conservative Party promised in the last election. Mister Johnson also said he thought it was important to have women only spaces in hospitals, prisons, and changing rooms. But admitted they were complexities and sensitivities around transgender issues that will still need to be worked out. Well, he's

Nick Nicholas Jr's Path to HBO

Nick Nicholas Jr's Path to HBO

"I wish you could all somehow meet Nick Nicholas junior, and I wish there were more like them in the world. Nicholas was educated at Phillips Andover, Princeton, and Harvard Business school. But with all due respect to that trio of pedigrees, it's doubtful those places taught him as much as his father did. Nick's dad commanded two submarines during World War II. The salmon and the spike fish and was part of the gang known as the Nimitz boys after the great admiral. Nick's dad instilled in his son, a strong moral compass, and a keen work ethic. One of numerous reasons why Nick junior enjoyed such a spectacular rise at time Inc, all the way to the top. But before the powers gave him his own set of keys to the kingdom, IE the company. They sent him to HBO to further test the young stars operational capabilities. It was a challenge. Time Inc was on the verge of closing down HBO. It was in 1976, and my boss dick Monroe, Jake and I used to walk to the station at night. That is to Grand Central from time and life building. At high speed, a little cardio, and he broached the idea. He said, Nick, I'd like you to move to HBO and take over the management. He said things are going well, you know that. He had to lose in a lot of money. The company, meaning time make is going to continue to finance it. So I want you to replace Levin whenever you can do it.

And that's well over 14,000. 15,000. Let's be clear here. Less than a month of fighting in Ukraine, ten years in Afghanistan.

Why They Banned Me From Twitter

"We have a process on how we tweet around here. I actually don't have the Twitter dot com app on my phone, producer Connor does. And we have to go through a process of what is tweeted and what has approved upon and all of that. So there was this tweet that came out in our chat and we went back and forth and I read it four or 5 times. We even watered it down just so you know. We watered it down significantly because we don't want look less so famously said when he was trying to topple the Soviet Union, we have enough martyrs. And don't try to just run into a machine gun nest with your hands up saying, I hate Stalin and they shoot you. Okay, what good is that? That doesn't do any good. But if you get martyred for a good purpose and it moves the ball forward and you're still trying to be prudent about it, that's a separate issue. So enough kamikaze pilots, I suppose what I'm getting at. So we workshopped this tweet that said, I want you to listen carefully. Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family. He transitioned to being a woman in 2011. Joe Biden appointed Levine to a four star admiral and now USA Today has named Rachel Levine as a woman of the year, where are the feminists? Now that sentence I just read to you, I tweeted. And as a result, we have lost access to our Twitter. We have been suspended from Twitter for that specific tweet. It says, quote, you may not promote violence against threaten or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease. So that's interesting. I get threatened all the time on Twitter, people wishing me death, attacking me because of my conservative beliefs because of my Christianity and all that Twitter doesn't do anything about it. Nor do I want them to, nor do I care about it because I don't actually define myself by being a victim of some sort of group. I think it's a waste of time and a bad it's just a poor way to exist or to live your life. So then Twitter kind of offers this choice. They cock the gun, they put the gun to your forehead, and they say, okay, you can either click delete and then you get your Twitter back, basically you can acknowledge you did wrong and submit to us or you're not going to get your Twitter back.

How Long Can the Ukrainians Hold Out?

"Right now. Senator, I had the admiral staff read us on the last hour. I want to ask you given that you're on Senate Intel and armed services. The Ukrainians are putting out the hell of a fight. We admire them. What is the situation on the ground and do you actually have a strong belief that they can hold out much longer? Well, the situation on the ground in many places is atrocious. You have innocent women and children in particular since many of the men are off fighting, being shelled and discriminately in places like Steve and its surrounding suburbs, but you also have largely stalled Russian advances. So significant failure of our government both The Pentagon and the intelligence community not to recognize the Ukrainians world fight and the challenges that the Russians would have from a force that was too small and under trained to poor maintenance and equipment for the logistics strains, we had a hearing last week in the intelligence committee in public to our one annual public hearing year in which some of the leaders acknowledged they submit point underestimated the Ukrainians may overestimate the Russians.

Germany Does 180 on Defense Spending

"Now, I am not a psychiatrist psychologist and I don't project my impressions of leaders onto the media. Because I'm not in a position to judge Putin's state of mind. I just know what he's doing and what he's doing is reverting to Chechnya and Syrian tactics. In terms of what you've seen, I can judge the state of the mind of the German public because all of a sudden nearly 90% of them support massive hikes and defense spending as a former NATO allied supreme commander. That's got a surprise you and encourage you. It's been quite amazing to watch something I've been personally lobbying for and advocating for, along with the entire U.S. government for three decades. And in my case, four years is supreme allied commander literally buttonhole in Chancellor Merkel and then minister of defense, Ursula von der leyen, who's now the head of the European Union, personally button holing them and begging them to increase defense spending and all of a sudden in 48 hours Vladimir Putin has shown he's a much better persuader than admiral Jim staff read us. So I'm highly encouraged by this. I think it's been a wake-up call for Europe. And by the way, watch Sweden and Finland. If you woke up and Stockholm and Helsinki and you're outside the NATO alliance, I think this is the week when you start demanding a NATO membership card out of your government and boy, that's got to be part of Vladimir Putin's worst nightmare.

"So admiral civilian you here at Caesar's story. A couple of P 8s, which I understand to be an aircraft that does surveillance. Get buzzed by some Russian fighters within 5 feet. It's called unprofessional and dangerous by The Pentagon. All right, tell me what happens if that goes from unprofessional and dangerous to a crisis where a Russian fighter takes out a PA. You have put your finger on my greatest concern, which is a miscalculation that occurs in the middle of this strategic confrontation that lights off a conflagration. A P 8 is a big lumbering 7 57 like aircraft that is used to hunt submarines and to do broad area surveillance. Very capable, very new, very precise in their air handling abilities. This buzzing incident is high stakes, dangerous, it could be that spark that hits a pool of gasoline.

Look at North Korea, look at Iran. I don't understand why the Senate allows someone like Wendy Sherman to be our negotiator. She is not the tip of the spear. She's not our best. She's actually one of the worst, she cares very deeply about being liked by the other side. She doesn't have the ability to put down an America first agenda. She is crippled like Biden. She is crippled with consensus, meaning the other side's got to like me, otherwise I'm in trouble.

I said that campy not eligible for another two years he goes. What your your group. I told because. Dan joe's sauce mine. So so with that I wound up. Not staying long as i would have liked to but i left there and then went to got selected for harvard as a national security fellow up there and that was another remedial education therefore me the deposit about harvard really mean he's got a good reputation but who do the spelling counts. So what are you. How long have you up there for thirteen months so it was a one year fellowship but It was remarkable. So i had. I had officer right because remember the faculty club And it was just great to be able to have. My mother took my mother to the faculty club. And just tell you know. Even c. students can make into harvard faculty clubs but It was really great because it was small seminars focused on what i was up. There really do as advanced research national security. But the folks that i had up there at the kennedy school is really the holding tank for government. They re the former secretaries former ambassadors. And i became because one your seal just and had the rank that was included in everything. They're just really remarkable That you know some of the seminars. In i had to put a maybe once a week because we had to take turns so many memorandum and then go to the two professors who one would be the former deputy secretary of state and was an under secretary of defense. And they'd go through. This darn thing to joe you dope. You can't say that they're going to leave that to the washington post and and honest to goodness like. Here's how you say it without indicting. Really good practical stuff but because i got included in everything. This is at a time when Ted kennedy was still alive and the senator from massachusetts and john john was around. And they'd come to the kennedy school all the time but senator. Kennedy's sister was the ambassador to ireland and The kennedy family invited gerry adams to come to boston. And then he gave a lecture and the evening at at the kennedy school and small dinner. So they'll these are all merida's professors which like to come. Joe boy would i you know and we had dinner. There were only about eight of dinner and he was holding court. And i gotta tell you. I was just sitting there watching and no wonder i mean this guy. These are all senior. Merida's harvard professors and they were eating out of his hand. And if the good real good sit in our four store at that point in time general downing came up to visit he came up on a regular basis to harvard. And so what are you been up to.

Went to become the deputies sock pack. So i had all of these beautiful suits and overcoats and things that weren't that offered and then your home in You know aloha attire. Don't throw anything away you never know. And then what you're doing the deputy. What's the deputy position like out there in soccer pack. What are you doing. it was wonderful so In in the pacific sock pack was co located in the same building as the pacific commander. So we actually were alo- a separate sub unified command Admiral prieur who was the pacific. Commander actually made us a part of his staff so well we. We had the best of both worlds that In the morning you know it'd be up there Because the general travel a great deal. And i would be the one that represented sit there with the four star and his his staff. Getting the all of the classified briefings up in the skiff and then down to Another conference room were broader. Audience with the less classified think discussed but going through Interesting things With sending to carry a battlegroups into the taiwan strait at seeing that unfold but we also had a a situation where This was the first time. I really became aware of beheadings We had a group of westerners this is in august of ninety five On vacation through the hindu kush and this was up in The line of control Enshrine hagar and they were captured and held ransom by muslims. Up there and one of the captors norwegian ran away and they caught him and they cut his head off.

It was an old school beaver tail with zipper up the front who they barely helped. They barely i mean they provided some some bit of warmth but barely. What's the swimmer lockup. So you're in a submarine and then underwater you get out of the submarine and you go and it's it's a very common was like on the u boat but for the american sobs they have an escape chamber which is a little ball. It's a little. It's a little sphere that you're sitting in and it's probably six eight foot diameter off more on the ballistic missile submarines. It is but on the attack. Boats is probably about four feet across. It's tiny you're in there so you get in there from inside the sub and then that thing fills up with water and as it fills up with water. The pressurize the pressure equalizers. With what's outside and you end up with just a little bit of air la- couple inches and then vinit equalize and then you can. The door opens up. And you you swim out of the summary so i i. I'd i deployed twelve submarine so back. Then you once you get your no good deeds punish too. That's how i wound up doing the german u. boat and it was different now The u boats up of the baltic their so It's shallow up. There as well are our submarines deep deep draft. But they're silent disliked. Try to listen to a battery and so it was a completely different experience and that german tunein have got Eight torpedo tubes in the bow and what they did is import. They took a torpedo out of the port side and the starboard side so there's no torpedo. Now keep in mind folks that this is only twenty one inches wide and I guess about maybe twenty one feet in length so we had to link up with german u. boat In the middle of the The baltic so now this was planned exercise So we fly out of macaroni.

"I come hobbling out of the the third phase office and the cedar realistic. I see the chief. Johnny johnson outside smoking a cigarette like any good seal over sudden. He says let's stop. You know what instructor tells you to stop you. Stop over here. So i go over to says where are you going. I said well stena chief from going across the street for an x ray. No you're not. Of course. I'm not seen achieve. He goes what's up. I said well you know. I got a little trouble. He says. I'll tell you. What mr mac. You got a broken leg. He said there's no doubt in my mind. You've got a broken leg. So here's the deal you go back in there. You put your medical record in there. I'm not gonna guarantees but if you will the got it out. We'll see what we can do. Yes he new chief and so went back in there. And actually you know was able to was always behind in the runs but i was able to hop on the obstacle course as still finishing top five in that because that's all technique but we used to run as as usually go jaakko from the compound down to the center center beach and coronado which is probably little over mile and then and then in the water so i would be the last one in the water by light years but i would be the first one out of the water so at least the instructors knew that i'm putting out but the other thing. I think that there were thoroughly entertained. That they didn't want me out of that. But you know You know the folks who are out there Instructors the ones that really they are the gatekeepers for who's gonna wind up going to seal team and they are instructors for just a limited period of time and then they go back to the team and the young men that their training a going to become their teammates so for the most part they're sizing them not only to meet the standards. But also kinda say. Is this somebody that. I wanna be a teammate. With and if i get into trouble and i'm in my left is one of these guys in my left and my right and i think that even if i was having a difficult time there i was most fortunate to have good instructors and and back then I mean everybody was vietnam veteran. Everybody everybody had a silver star And i was blessed to have a medal of honor recipient is one of my instructors. Mike thornton and that helped shape me as well. More ways that one but These guys said known the crucible of combat and they were looking at students and nobody really cared if nobody graduated back then but They were looking at Can we trust this guy in combat. And i think that was the standard and i have to say. In retrospect it wasn't me It was the instructors that really showed me tremendous kindness but just a easy Being able to do the stuff that we needed to do at the end of trading there was a class must have been just before it wasn't it wasn't the class eighty five eighty six where literally no one made it. That's correct whoa. What class do you. That was Don't but i think you're close but the other one was Admiral olson's class Wind up With four people in hell week and the instructor has had to help them carry the ibs because they could for guys could carry ninety s and his truck has made up on. Whenever gonna let me six. It's got to be at least next week. Eric had four guys when he has his graduation picture and one of the one of the students is a a foreign student in his class. So three american foreign guy But it was different different. Jeffrey time back then but the instructors out of the back of their belco the ball cap. We made them quit. So it the standards But they were pretty much on their own as far as though what they wanted to do. But i'll i'll be honest with you. These are instructors that i had tremendous respect for and respect for their combat experience. And they were. They were great instructors because they were intense. And if you didn't have the standard Even if you will make the standard and it was tough to see a classmate go. But in retrospect they were right. This guy would not have fit in to us that yeah and then So graduating and then off to jump school which was always airborne. Yeah that's it you know. What are we cost crammed into three else. Go so you airborne school. I'm sure it was the challenge to keep your sure. There's a lot of challenges that everyone's go for you. i can imagine the runs. Were not as challenging as traffic. Control your mouth talking to be army folks. No i called karnal a couple of times. So i actually.

"Failing to live up to the agreement they made with the international community of giving Fifty years of runway to hong kong before it could be completely assimilated. And i think it's an indicator of what their intentions might be toward the island of taiwan We have a few minutes left. What else would you like to tell. The american people give two things that i'm watching closely john o. One is events in the middle east Here we see. Iran go through an election just two weeks ago in elect a extreme hardliner president. His name is ibrahim bry. You see. he's a former prosecutor who signed the death weren't thousands of arabia protesters Very hard core figure who is often someone people point to as the next supreme leader behind supreme ayatollah from the so. He is going to have his inauguration in august. And i think we've got some real tensions coming immediately after and you see it of course in the recent strikes that the biden administration conducted against iranian backed militias in iraq There is going to be more and more attention to the middle east. And so what should we do about it. We should be working as closely as we can week. Israel with gulf arab partners. We should encourage those two two draw closer together and we should continue to maintain sanctions on iran in less in until iran makes a good faith change in its behavior around the region. Its pursuit of nuclear weapons in. Its desire for long range. Ballistic missiles technology. All of those. I think are unlikely under a president racy and therefore i think that's an area of the world that we ought to be very concerned about well. Admiral stavridis thank you for everything you've done for america continue to do for america and God bless you and god bless america. It'd be in every fourth of july. We ought to be saying those words. Thanks so much. John back you. This is the cash roundtable. Be right back..

"I should note the pronunciation of zhang her. If you read the title of this episode and you speak english you might pronounce it as zang he. I'm trying to stay true to the chinese pronunciation as much as i can. The new emperor inherited a rather large fleet ships however he wanted to expand their fleet and use it to project chinese power and influence beyond their borders. The emperor sign young. The task of overseeing the project junk hub began construction on the fleet in a shipyard and nanjing which sits on the yangtze river just up from the modern city of shanghai on july eleventh. Fourteen o five. The fleet set off on their first voyage. There weren't incredible three hundred seventeen ships in the fleet to put this into perspective. There were only one hundred thirty ships in the spanish armada. The fleet consisted of worships. Merchant vessels support ships and of course the giant treasure ships. The treasure ships were on spiring and still would be today if one were to sail into a modern port. Creating that sense of all was totally part of the mission. The chinese wanted to impress the locals in every port where they arrive. A total of twenty eight thousand sailors. Merchants and soldiers took part in the expedition. The route they took was similar to a chinese merchants had been traveling centuries. They travelled south to southeast asia stopping in the modern day countries of vietnam indonesia brunei malaysia sri lanka in india. Along the way they stopped in various parts of local kingdoms engaged in trade and also took with them on voice from local kings when they return to china and fourteen o seven. They fought a brief paddle with chinese pirates. And delivered the envoys to the imperial court there. They delivered their gifts to the ming emperor. And we're giving gifts in return for their rulers back home. they're staying. China was short as the emperor ordered a second voyage to set sail that year this time they followed roughly the same route taking the voice back to their home cities along with gifts from the chinese emperor. They resolved a standing diplomatic issue between java in china. Along the way in all over a period of twenty years there were six. Voyages of the ming treasure fleet. All of which were commanded by zhang her the fleet strengthen china's ties with states oliver southeast asia and along the indian ocean it dramatically increased trade with these regions and brought back to china plethora of goods the voyages also established china as the hegemonic power in asia by having other asian states recognize and pay tribute.

"Who realizes that? He can manage inventories for stores much more efficiently. His name is Sam. Walton and Walmart is one of the first use cases of a cobol driven inventory management system. A young inchworm name Dick Fisher. Who knows cobol goes to work in the early sixties to a very small Investment Bank in New York Which has about fifty employees and about four million dollars in revenue and he uses cobol start doing financial analysis for this company and it's so successful in fact that ten years later. Dick Fisher is named the of this company and its Morgan Stanley. Oh just that small company just Walmart just Morgan Stanley just casual. Just whatever so this Kobe. Or whatever else around four four Tran. Not for China thought to specific cases. It's it's cobalt specifically right and what allows is an everyday person a normal person who doesn't have a computer computational background to start handling data sets to start doing simple programs themselves the they would have done with little bits of paper in writing and finally. Dexin exactly so instead of like you know your corner grocery store just doing their accounts by hand. They have an accountant that they employ to keep a log book. Like a physical paper spreadsheet. Sam takes this new incredibly powerful tool that can handle vast amounts of information and do way more complicated things with that data and you can see how that little corner store that community marketplace would then be enabled to become something like a Trans National Franchise Corporation like Walmart Cool Story. It's pretty amazing. So it is. Essential Grace and the compiler is necessary to be able to use programming languages. Right so I think it's easy to focus on the programming language as being this really integral step that really opened up computing to nonscientific audiences but the compiler is what makes that possible. And the compiler is a piece of software so the compiler is the southwest. This is essentially the first software exactly so the compiler I is a piece of software and then you lay your more pieces of software on top of that like a programming language which is also a software. So grace is the mother of all software. It's so upsetting that. These people are not given the exposure accolades that they deserve. You telling me I really. I genuinely I'm embarrassed that I don't know how his story I think people are starting to recognize her more and are are celebrating her more. Which gives me a lot of hope but Kurt is about to get us there and take us all the way into the now and really bring us home with grace's contributions and so this way we can now create different softwares that can turn the hardware in one case to a payroll machine the next case to look at ballistics tables the next case to do a flight simulator and we live with this every single day right so when we look at our iphone it's single piece of hardware but every single software APP that we download turns it into whatever we wanted to be so it could be a calendar. It can be a video game machine it can be email. That is all done through the power of software. So it's the most amazing multiplying effect. Because now you start. Creating virtual worlds out of software that move well beyond the hardware structure that it sits upon so we've gone from these incredibly specialized machines that take whole rooms that you have to move a plug into an out of by hand to ask a question and grace is really what gets us from that as something. That's so much more versatile and of course when she's doing this she's not thinking about a smartphone right. She dies in Nineteen Ninety two so she doesn't really get to see nineteen ninety nine hundred ninety two as she doesn't get to see it. Come all the way to what you know. Curtis talking about at the end of Damascene credible things at the end of her life. Yes we'll get to the end of her life in a second because it is also extraordinary but this is where I say to Kurt. So basically it's like a moth. The atomic bomb and one tiny determined women are responsible for Walmart stock market and the age of digital information. Right that that tees through to you at the beginning and he laughs and he says don't forget the other unsung women and men during this period. You know one thing. I talk about a lot at University of California. Berkeley is that no individual creates a technical revolution no individual creates a startup. We as a society I think we liked to also give too much credit to individuals So Steve JOBS NOT BUILD APPLE. A lot of different people built apple. Bill Gates did not build Microsoft. A lot of people built Microsoft. Same thing with grace. I think grace had the key philosophies also created probably the single most important Ventian but she was very good and this is a key point. She was very good at organizing people in motivating teams. And I think this is what we leave out a lot. Oftentimes when we depict Technologists in the in the movies for instance you know they're they're geniuses who maybe have a hard time interacting with people. In fact grace's the opposite. Her great strength is her ability to organize and interact with people. Amen to that to be honest. I think it's something that we could be accused of succumbing right on this podcast took cost right choosing one person in kind of Celebrating them over the others. But but I think on our defense we do then also talk about the teams who also talk about the the other people who are not taught about this context so so yes. She is not only a great thing. She's clearly a great leader and manager and project manager. And it's about all those other people that support and help to contributed alongside her on that journey. Because you can certainly be an absolute genius. But then you don't know how to leverage those resources to get people on your side or to get people to cooperate with you and buy into your idea or see through all the way you know. She spends decades tending to COBOL and making shirts evolving to still be useful with her and her entire team and so I think that perseverance and that dedication to bring all kinds of people together I kind of liked to contrast and maybe this is a little unfair and biased of me but I can trust it. Tabasco microbes related. You know that is hilarious but no man if I could find a way to tie then in the incredible anecdote. I shared with you at the beginning where she arrives at her first day at Harvard and the sick the group supervisor it doesn't even say hello doesn't greater just says where the hell of you been and gives her a project. I like to contrast that to Kurt's interpretation of grace and her ability to motivate teams. And how much more successful and productive that can be and how I think women like grace. Were specially good at that. At collaboration at bringing people together and making sure everyone was really a team player to make some really incredible stuff happen and those are softer skills. That science and scientists may be. Don't value as much sometimes essentials that are essential so become to the end of her life at age. Seventy nine grace retires as a rear admiral in the Navy. She pushes it all the way to nine. Yeah above and beyond what you re required to that time big time so much for entities loves it. Yes and at the time. She's the oldest saving officer in the Armed Forces Law and even after her retirement she seventy-nine nine. She still considered such an expert that she goes on to work as a consultant at the Digital Equipment Corporation. All the way up until her death in one thousand nine hundred eighties Yup. She's still chilling. People are asking her questions and this is where we get into. Grace receiving more recognition. She she did. She was the recipient of many honorary degrees in her life. I think almost one hundred honorary degrees. She yeah she received the Presidential Medal of freedom in two thousand sixteen after her death so she doesn't get to see but people are really starting to recognize contributions to not only science not only the military but the whole world the conference for Women in Computing is called the grace hopper conference. And it's a big. It's actually called the grace hopper celebration which I think is very key speaks to her life and her legacy where the women of the world in computing come together and celebrate each other on grace's legacy and contributions. I also thought this was really fun. Kurtz through this in here at the end of our conversation that they're making a movie about great are really excited about it because you know sadly dot is one of the best ways to get into the public consciousness and survey someone's own story you know what I actually don't think it's that sad because pop culture defines us right it. It defines our communal knowledge. And who we see in who we celebrate really matters so I think it's cool that you're right it's not. It's not silently that that's the case that is the say things get misinterpreted is the means of raising awareness about people in issues. He's got to tell a good story exactly speaking of which we've come to the end of ours and you told a good one. Thanks so much for Listening Greg.

Or wherever you get your podcasts. So we're back. You're listening to surprisingly brilliant and I'm about to tell Greg the next huge advance in modern computing that grace's responsible for and it's called the compiler Kurtz about to let us know what that is. The compiler then becomes the translator. So imagine if you're trying to speak to someone in German they don't know English. You don't need German. You need to find a third party that can speak both languages and translate back and forth A. That's exactly what hoppers compiler did it served as the translator between human language and the computer language. And what the great inside of Hopper was beyond that I compiler was she then started realizing well. There are no limitations to what human language means. It can be a bunch of symbols mathematical symbols. It could be German. It could be English. It could be icons and graphics and windows pages controlled with a mouse or the icons on your phone controlled with your finger. Each of those is a human form of language that then gets translated into the ones and zero code that the computer understands said this is essentially an interface or like a way to input something in words or images that we understand that then converted to something. A Computer understands to do the program. Absolutely precisely the compiler way Kurt Express to me is like the middle filling bit in a sandwich. Where the bottom bitter the bread is you as a human target of the bread is the computer and the compiler is the middle because by then at this point in time. Gobber is recognizing this This limitation of computers in a different way where you have to be a mathematician to be able to ask the computer these questions by now. We've moved on computers At this point also think quote unquote in binary so ones and zeroes. Basically a Yes. Or no whether that's a physical component at this point or then we move into digital so with electrons and electric flex. Initially it was a a a switch. Exactly Shoob xactly. Both both yeah depends on the machine. Again they're highly specific to each architecture before a Grayson von Neumann. Come up with this new way of thinking about it and then at that point we do have a method of talking to a computer. That isn't you have to physically program ones and Zeros right because you can imagine how many mistakes you would make if you had to be the one that was like in charge of the correct order of just ones and Zeros. Right rough chain from one to zero you program would be messed up which is better. I mean vacuum cheap in the. That's that's one so we've moved. We've moved past binary like that's that's just not a feasible way to talk to a computer at all and by this point that grace's coming up with these this idea of a compiler. Computers are programmed in machine code which to the untrained eye. Looks like total gibberish? It's called hacks Decimal Code Switz- letters and numbers and you still have to be like a complete expert in exit `small to be able to talk to your computer and ask it to do stuff like a programming. Input would be something like be Zero. Six one eight three seven nine right you know on and on and on and on depending on that. Because that's what you get for of code for color. Yes like different colors have hex coned Exactly And someone very clever has come up with an interface software right where you can click and drag a little eyedropper right. So that's not what we're talking about when we're talking about a compiler that's what's called a graphical user interface or a gooey here. We're talking about the step. Before that the compiler grey says okay. I WANNA be able to have anybody be able to talk to a computer. I don't want somebody to have to be hex decimal expert or a mathematician. We need something that will make computing accessible to more people than just science and research. Wonderful Grace. Yes we love her so important in like communication of those things these days early the Raspberry Pie that love me raspberry Pi and so. She is working on this at Harvard. The war has ended. She's done her work with von Neumann. She's still working hard on making these advancements to computing and in nineteen fifty two. She has the first operational compiler and she says in an account of that time in reflecting in her memoirs. She says nobody believed that. I had a running compiler and nobody would touch it. They told me computers could only do arithmetic so she has to advocate hard core and it takes her years. We see this in in a number of these stories where people are. They claim to have done a thing and people like Nas not possible or just close down all they do actually do a thing and people guy not sorry. Conti things. We'll just look at it. Just try just give it a shot and see what happens. I promise you it's going to change the world and again I think we've we've pointed this out a couple times too that looking back on it with this other. Lens in you know from our our modern perspective. It's always like yeah. Of course they should have used it but at the time. It's a huge shift in the way of thinking. So there's pushback. She has to really advocate for it. She comes up with the first English like programming language. Where you can type into a computer in English and granted it's still commands like pole and then parentheses whatever your data set is or whatever it may be. It's not free flowing English to be. You can't say please do this computer. Thank you how you doing today. We'd be great if you could possibly. But you're using English words as opposed to a coded series of random numbers and huge huge and that code called flow matic. And it's something that you kind of assume was done right from the start of Computing Zach Control. But actually now let me know that know that comes in later in had to be developed. Exactly by hopper. And I'm about to tell you how fundamentally it it's not just computing but also the entire world because flow matic. That first English like programming language makes way is the the foundation for something called cobol which grace develops and then continues to develop for years after she first comes up with that she also keeps tending to it and COBOL stands for common business oriented language. Right he is still happening in the navy. Yes yes actually. She is still in the navy because she doesn't retire until she's like eighty three. So yeah all of this is happening underneath kind of Navy exactly right in a paper about her life. Somebody gives an account of this impetus. That grace has for doing this. This desire and I really love the way they put it. They say Admiral Hopper believed that the major obstacle to computers in nonscientific and business applications was the dearth of programmers for these far from user friendly new machines the key to opening up new worlds to computing she knew was the development and refinement of programming languages languages that could be understood and used by people who were neither mathematicians nor computer experts. And She's absolutely right. I think scratch. I've seen the kids use to kind of learn logic and programming languages. Actually because there is those simple words that you can reorder and they use it tomato animations and run programs online absolutely. It's such a powerful tool to be able to use their own language to actually programming and see it all comes back to hopper it. Does Kobe cobol yes. Cobol and there are other languages being developed at this time so she did flow matic beforehand. Which was the precursor to it. Four Tran is a is a popular. A scientific coating mechanism at the time a programming language. But it's not as user friendly it's not as oriented towards a non science person as Kobaliya's and Kurt is about to give a sense of just. How drastically COBOL? And the compiler change our modern world. So for instance in the early sixties. There's a a young man who learns Cobol.

That's going to make a difference. Welcome back you're listening to brilliant seekers science history podcast where me Merrin Hans. Berger and Greg Greg Foot were talking about grace hopper and the very beginnings of computing machines at the start of World War. I believe of not defer rubbish. No this is why I suggested here for this rat Harvard. I are in his studio in San Francisco but in this story Greg. We're at Harvard. Where he on the Mark One with grace hopper and she's putting together the five hundred page manual of operations for the mark. One where she I know. It's extensive. She personally outlines the fundamental operating procedures for computing machines at the time. Gosh which as you mentioned with the closest over in the UK in Bletchley these competing machines are all pretty limited. She's trying to make them more efficient and useful. Because if you look up a picture of them. They're just huge walls of mechanical equipment. And at one point you have to plug in like physically manually plug in a wire into a peg board to ask a certain question and then physically manually remove it and plug it in elsewhere to another calculation. Sometimes you have a punch holes in paper tape that you have to manually punch and then feed into the computer. So it's very time and labor intensive mounts because essentially that bill is lodge versions of logic gates also if an physical ones yes combinations of them put together that build formulae and the ability to compute exactly and actually I mean this is a little bit off topic but the very first mechanical computer ever invented way back in the eighteen hundreds by Charles Babich and I think we should talk about that another episode. Yeah we should steam punk thing. It's it's a William gives them but where it's like. What if Bob Edge had actually made that a reality exactly and that's kind of where we are now in the nineteen forties. We're at the point where these machines are huge. They're capable of doing a lot more kinds of a lot more complicated calculations but they still take a lot of physical mechanical effort so the Colossus the any AC though the mark one they were designed and and constructed in a way where they really were supposed to only make one key calculation or a small set of calculations and so it was hopper. Who broke that pattern and and what just amazes me is. She broke the pattern not just for computers. But for all your technology from that point forward. It's at this point each machine and again these are gigantic and incredibly expensive machines. They're each designed to do kind of one specific thing right physically there their architectures constructed so that they're good at one thing and not very much. They're not very versatile. So how do we get from hopper using paper tape to talk to this large scale automatic calculator to like your laptop which can do five hundred million things when it wants to win at once to when it decides it wants to your? Have you tried turning it on and off again Greg Pro Cycle? This is where the atomic bomb comes in. I promise you the atomic bomb third on the list actually takes off and small women and I'm just waiting for keeping track. I'm like scribble throughout all these unimpressed. So a man named John Von Neumann is working on the Super Secret Manhattan project. Have you heard of Von Neumann? Yes yes you've heard of von Neumann but not of Greece are about to get to this point. Where about laws? No you're your phone so the Manhattan project as we know is this super-secret scientific research collaboration being done by the US to develop an atomic vision weapon for World War Two and Von. Neumann is incredibly smart. Their accounts of him being like absolutely stunning in his intellectual powers. He's got a photographic memory. He's able to do insane math problems in his head. He himself is almost kind of like really advanced computer and he's in charge of a nice way of looking at it. I mean that's kind of high picture him. Because he's the one who's tasked with being in charge of the the branch of the Manhattan project. That does a lot of the mass or maths as he would say To figuring out how tonic bomb is going to work and how to make it the most efficient and how to how to make it The weapon that the US wants yet. Because you think of the bombs in the in the wall Manhattan project bombs anything they just. Yes about vision. It's about getting the right. Amount of enriched uranium. And what you do with it but there must be in a lot of software actually involved in everything that packages around that and the release of it and the programming of. Oh well that's interesting that you say that because we don't have software yet at this point but the atomic bomb is the impetus for some kind of software by at this point. We're doing these calculations about the rate of implosion of a perfect sphere of nuclear material by hand. Wow right so because we don't have computers that are capable of doing complicated math like that yet. Except von Neumann's like Oh my God. If I had a whole room full of the most advanced mathematicians have we would not be able to solve this implosion problem in the amount of time that we need to. It would take years. Maybe our whole lives. So he's like we need to get a computer on the case here. But how are we going to make a computer be able to do something? Aid is complicated and be. We don't have to build a whole new machine right because these machines are built to do specific things so check of guys right the implosion problem. You're talking about so. They've got a sphere of that fissionable material rights and nuclear stuff. Probably ready and they. They've got to calculate how quickly it's GonNa gigging through to the through to the Middle. How quickly it's GonNa Collapse of reaction thing like so a differential logs that too complicated do current in computer really difficult calculus problem exactly to make an efficient design for for the bomb and it is actually the the one we end up using and to solve this problem to help him his team solve this problem. Von Neumann knows that grace's doing some great work at Harvard making computers more efficient and more versatile or at least trying and he comes to grace and he says hey look I have this problem and what happens in here is a little bit of a black box. Not a lot is written about it. It's Manhattan project did secret stuff And if grace is really heavily involved. Her name is in written down a heck of a lot. I'm in Nineteen forty-six. Von Neumann publishes his paper where he coins the term von Neumann architecture which is the basis of a lot of the computer architecture. Most of the computer architecture that we still have today. It changes the way that we build computers. Because it's stores programs in sight of it so instead of always having to come to the computer and ask it a question every time you can press a button on the computer and this is a vastly simplified way of explaining it but press a button on the computer and it will do the program by itself right so that's way simpler so we don't know how much of a row grace played in that. But we know that she was consulted on it and doing something similar at Harvard. Well Kurtz GonNa tell us a little bit about it. Think of like the old Video Games that I came out where you could buy a video console that only played pong and that was the only thing it did and then it was Atari that said well we can have cartridges with different software to make the same console play different types of games. It's hoppers philosophy of the fungibility of software that allows us to continue to reinvent these pieces of hardware. We call computers so she was instrumental. Yes at that jump in ability for a computer to be able to do count. Kiss was huge mental forgetting the best designed for the atomic bomb. And it's just the complicated nature of the problem. It's also this radical shift in the way of computer thinks so. Have an example. It's very very simple right. It's more complicated than this in real life. But I'm not a computer scientist biologist so basically instead of having gets out so if any of this is a little too simple for you computer scientists out there. Don't add me so my my very simple example. Is that instead of having to ask the computer every time? Say Two plus two and then you. You're the one who saying due to bless to please. You can say run an arithmetic problem with these two numbers. So it's a little bit of a small distinction but it makes computation more efficient. Because the computer already knows what you're GONNA ask it. Yeah I got you. I'm shooting. It wouldn't be too us too because the original computers probably could have done that going to be like. Hey differentiate this much much much more complicated. Can they also do programs within programs? Well we're about to that Greg. You're on the case man. It's like you know what's about to happen. Except he's so current as he just explained earlier does actually make the case in his book about grace that Von Neumann Architecture. Which is what we call. The underpinnings of most modern computing should actually be called grace hopper architecture But grace does get credit for what you just referenced and the next huge advance in modern computing which we will dive into right after.

"And one of my favorite anecdotes about her time when she first shows up at Harvard. The Guy who's running that lab. He's very famous for being super gruff and very like committed to the work not really caring about people that much and she shows up on her first day. He doesn't even greet her or say hello and he goes where the hell of you been and it gives her an assignment and figure this out. Tell me more about this computer computer. Okay so these are the precursors to the machines that we would now recognize as computers. They're really different to what we would think of as a computer because they're actually largely mechanical like physical moving parts. This machine. The mark one is fifty feet long ways almost five tons. It contains five hundred and thirty miles of wire and just to add two numbers together. It takes about three to six seconds. We can do quicker than that a little bit straight ten boom navy you can actually. That's true I do too. I'm a smart person. I can do mental guessing these a huge numbers to be fair. Yes for the most part at the very beginning there less e doing useful calculations than being developed as machines. That will eventually be very useful. So grasshoppers right on the forefront of making these machines into what we are going to use for really complicated calculations and I know. They don't sound particularly earth-shattering at this time. It's just the the very necessary first step. So we're essentially with building good machines that we can then use in cryptology. Cryptography moving forward precisely and they really define everything we know about competing in at all the language we use around computing even today and one of my favorite stories ever probably ever in science comes from grace hopper working in the forty s on the mark one so those. I mark computers when they ran because they were electrical mechanical. They got very hot and there was no air conditioning. At this time so generally you had to run them at night in particular when you had to keep the windows open and one evening. The machines was not functioning properly. One of the electromagnetic circuits was getting stuck and so in the logbook. Whoever was on duty that evening had found a moth in the electromagnetic output pulled it out into the logbook. And then we don't know who wrote under the moth but they wrote first actual bug found in a computer and you can actually see that very logbook and the first computer bug in the Smithsonian. Yes I said. That was my favorite stories of all time bug ever found a love that and. I'm just realizing these computers are Sipho machines on the you know in the UK Bletchley Park identify. This is something you're going to go into to be a great future episode for us. It really what I think we should cover because it deserves his whole own episode. The computers at Bletchley Park are a little bit different and I am going to get into losses. Yes exactly we're GONNA TALK ABOUT CLASSES. Just very briefly but they are all related. And they're all very important grace's story who is the one who then takes that first instance of an actual insect and actual bug in this physical computer and then is the one who coined the term bug to refer to software errors because she also literally invents software. But I'm GonNa tell you more about that..

"Or wherever you listen to podcasts. This story yes is a moth K. The atomic bomb and one very small determined woman she smaller than the off and not quite almost not quite story and they all tied together to create this thing. This amazing thing that pretty much. You probably have never heard of that. Pretty much underpins. The entirety of the way our modern world works from Walmart to the stock market to the smartphone in your pocket but I. This is surprisingly brilliant. A science history. Podcast from Seeker that tells the stories of surprising and brilliance discoveries ideas and people. I'm Greg Hi sorry I'm awake honest. Hello don't have a clue what we're going to about. I love that allows so excited to be Merrin. Your storyteller expect to be married. I'm always excited but I'm even more excited to be telling you this story. So we start with the woman in question. She's born in one thousand nine hundred six to two math loving parents in the nineteen twenties studies. Math at Vassar which is a prestigious university in the United States and she goes on to receive one of the first. Phd's ever awarded in mathematics at Yale University. And that's not first. Peachy ever awarded to women in mathematics at Yale its first. Phd's ever in Mass was. He wasn't even of course against his PhD but that was wow was one of the first ever PhD's mouth. She's on the brink and I got to talk to Dr Kurt. Beyer who is a former naval officer? He's currently a professor of entrepreneurship at UC Berkeley. And he wrote a book all about this woman and her impact on the world or when I first started teaching at a University of California Berkeley and I would bring up. Grace Hopper's name. I was just shocked that. Here's a class of people who want to be entrepreneurs in silicon valley many of whom want to go into the tech industry and almost to a person none of them knew who grace hopper was And it was very disappointing in in many levels grace hopper grace hopper. That's were talking about. I'm sorry to say I don't know of Grace Hopper. Kurt would be disappointed in you know he wouldn't be disappointed in you. Actually he'd be disappointed in the world. That sort of has erased her name from a lot of history. But I think that's changing so when we start with her career at the very beginning she's in the nineteen twenties she's a mathematician and I was kind of surprised that she gets this far in her mathematical career. Right in the nineteen twenties as a woman. And Kirk kind of set me straight on that. I think what most people Fail to understand. Is that women's progress in terms of their abilities to create careers in the sciences and mathematics is not a progressive line are actually greater opportunities for women in the nineteen twenties. Then there were four women All the way up until about the late one thousand nine hundred eighties so agrees hopper in essence was born At the right time to the right families so ten years later twenty later she may not have actually had the opportunities the word valuable to her in the nineteen. It's the perfect time because think about it. World War One has just happened so many men have just gone off to war and either they were just gone fighting for Fred. Were they all died? And so women have to step into these roles that they haven't been allowed into before during wartime right so they get this taste of while we can do stuff we can use our brains to do whatever we want not that they weren't before but you know in the professional sphere. I wonder if also top of that during World War One when all those men left whether that gave actually an opportunity to the women that remains to step into some of those jobs at the men were doing before they let yes exactly. That's what I'm trying to say. That's that's what I mean. They do already been if they array taken those roles and been seemed to be successful. In those roles there was a bit more trust So in the nineteen twenties. We're seeing this Remnant of that period of time but then in the nineteen thirties. There's this push back. She becomes a professor at Vassar College. And although she's she's content there and she a definitely makes the best of her experience. There Overachiever in so many ways. I I sense that there is a certain amount of frustration that after getting these degrees in mathematics that Heard time in the thirties was theoretical and she wasn't engaging necessarily in practical mathematical matters says she's a professor of mats and as you say is a pushback. I guess that's because the men kind of being like only one out jobs back one point before in the twenty s. It was like you're a woman may use your brain and do cool stuff and then we sort of slide back a little bit like no not like that. Only use your brain for certain things like teaching or nursing theory rather than practice teaching. Which Kirk goes on to say. It's not that she doesn't love teaching. But women often get relegated to educational spheres to nurturing spheres and he gets the sense that grace really wanted to be on the forefront of pushing mathematics forward and that is what happens because everything changes for the US. Unfor- grace in nineteen forty one. When something pretty major happens which is to World War Two is when the US enters World War. Two is nine hundred forty one after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. And so this is this is what happened to grace is after. Pearl Harbor She. She worked very hard to find her next career. Outside of teaching outside of Vassar and so initially she actually went into cryptology and started working with former professors from Yale and this would have been probably the the most practical path for after a Pearl Harbor and one that was well attuned to her mathematical skill sets It was at that time. Also that she wanted to join the navy and she didn't have to join the navy to work in cryptology but she definitely had a fascination with being in cut kept mentioning. Cryptology cryptography during that clip. I was googling. Could cruel verse. Cryptography with CRYPTO. Kathy which I know about is the art of creating code. Exactly cryptology is the study of coats exactly both creating and sold both sides. You sold them to encrypt healthy. You get out of here so the story about being in the Navy I think is is so cool and so funny because lake. Kurt says she doesn't have to be in uniform. She doesn't have to be in the military to do this mathematical cryptological work but she has a grandfather. Who was an admiral in the navy and an uncle who was the head of the Marine Corps? And she says to herself like. Hey I want to be one of those guys to Alson that love of math interesting cryptology with family history and ambition to go into the navy exactly. But here's the thing. She's not successful on her I try. She tries multiple times to join the navy but she keeps getting turned down by. Yes the first time it was because they weren't actually even accepting women into the navy or at least not into the places that she was applying. They couldn't be active service members but then after they do start letting women serve. She gets turned down again because of her age. She's thirty seven time. Been trying to get in when she was because of her stature. She doesn't the physical requirements smallman. She's five three and she's pretty underweight for height so the military is like. What are we going to do? Hugh Grace I mean. No don't need to be told to both create unsolved codes. And that's what Kurt says. And of course that's owed ridiculous. Given the fact that her mathematical knowledge and skill sets in the type of jobs she would be doing for the navy anyway when require her to To be a certain height and weight too. Good Point to point technically. She's going to be closer to the codes on the go. Something it'll be fine so she finally tries again in nineteen forty three. That's her her last attempt. And she's finally accepted as a member of the naval reserves. Where she is sent to do what she does. Best which is mass. Kurt actually kind of calls it a bureaucratic miracle of the military because she sort of gets kind of randomly assigned to go work at Harvard. University to work on. Cryptography stuff making a breaking of codes and she goes to Harvard because they have a machine called the mark one which is what they're calling at the time a large scale automatic calculator which sounds a lot like a computer exactly.

"You paddle down to the mudflats and spend the next fifteen hours trying to survive the freezing cold mud. The howling went in the incessant pressure to quit from your instructors. As the sun begins to set that Wednesday evening my training class having committed some egregious infraction of the rules was ordered into the mud. The mud consumed Ishmael until there is nothing visible but our heads. The instructors told us we can leave the mud. Only a five men with quit just five men we could get out of the oppressive called looking around the Mudflat. It was a pair of the simpsons. Were about to give up. It was still over for eight hours till the sun came up. Eight more hours of bone. Chilling cold the chattering. Teeth and shivering. Moans of the trees were so loud. It was hard to hear anything and then one voice began to echo through the night. One voice raised in Song. The song was terribly out of tune but some with great enthusiasm one voice became chew and chew became three and before long. Everyone in the class was singing. We knew that if one man could rise above the misery than others could as well the instructors threaten us with more time in the mud if we kept singing at the singing persisted and somehow the mud seemed a little warmer the wind a little tamer in the dawn. Not So far away.

"admiral j." Discussed on CATS Roundtable

"Good Morning America. This is the cats roundtable try casper. Td's here Sunday morning. Let's go to the world what's happening all over the world witnessed. Today is one of the experts that I know knows more a lot more than I do a lot. More than than a Lotta people. Admiral James. The res He was in charge of NATO four years thirty seven years in the US Navy and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. That was is exact title. And he's currently with the Carlisle Group. Hopefully making a Lotta money. Good Morning Admiral. How are you and do a great job? It's good to hear Your Voice Admiral. There's so many things going on around the world. I wish we start. Should we started Asia. Hong Kong China North Korea. We've got a lot of stuff just in Asia what what's going on. Let's start with this With China in these riots that are recurring Hong Kong. John Needs are quite important in the sense that potentially they could have an impact on China over time And sometimes you know doors. Big Changes Swing on small injuries. So is a series of disturbances. Riots I is something the. US is supporting as assure you know Eh. Congress has passed Awa- supporting the protesters. The president has signed there which I think is the right thing to do But China John at the end of the day is not going to simply will drift away from it. So we're GONNA see more riots more disturbances. I think we're GONNA see the Chinese roller there with tanks. I don't think we'll have a gentleman square to type of situation and I'll tell you why John it's because because the Chinese are worry about Hong Kong of course but there whealy desirous of getting Taiwan as part of China to do that. They've gotta show that they can manage that situation and China of a one nation two different systems in shown that they're willing to allow Hong Kong some level of Independent activity. That's how they'll be able to Taiwan so watch for that Those disturbances to continue. US will be supportive. China won't roll in there and farce. That one's going to just kind of move along long into the new year I predict now I was a little bit confused on Taiwan. Are you saying they would inferior arbitrarily. trone go in with China. Or what do you mean what. The Chinese hope John is that overtime can peacefully convinced to you. Want to make a decision to become part of China. I think that's very unlikely having visited Taiwan many times. I've been in contact with the the president of Taiwan Madame Si- It is highly unlikely but China's strategy overtime is to try and pull Taiwan toward them so they know the Taiwanese are looking carefully at what's happening in Hong Kong and I think that puts a little bit of a speed brake on Chinese Chinese Dramatic activity against the protesters in Hong Kong North Korea. The president has said that he's an have Christmas surprise any idea unfortunately Look for a long range elicit this'll all of that. So let's back up The President I think quite correctly has been on a track of negotiation with Kim Jong Un. You'll recall we started out with fire and fury and moved to carrier battlegroups Then we moved to negotiation. which is the right place for this But we really haven't made any progress in Almost a year Kim Jong UN has become very frustrated with this because he needs relief from Sanchez. That's how he can demonstrate his people that he's a player on the world stage that he's negotiating toe to toe with President trump and he's getting results. He hasn't gotten anything so far so John. Unfortunately I predict he's going to revert bad behavior. What I suspect we're going to see is a pretty long range range ballistic missile And then he's going to say to the trump administration. I'm going to resume a full blown testing of long range missiles. I've a big increase my number of nuclear warheads. He's going to try and force the president our president back to the bargaining table. The other place where I think we're having major. The problems is what the country having major problems is Iran Iran Triple the price of of gasoline to their people and and they're out there. Rioting and the Iranian army is mowing them down with machine guns. I understand what are you here. That is correct in there also arresting hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of the protesters many of whom are just ordinary people. Well John Who Feel that their economic lifeline is being crushed. you're on. The government is responding to the maximum pressure campaign of the administration restriction by raising prices. Because they have to in order to deal with the deficits and the collapsing Konami so they're raising prices of for example subsidize gasoline on. This is having a major impact and a lot of the rioting as result of economic displacement displacement. But there's also real disatisfaction broadly speaking in the populace with the Mola's religious leaders as well as with the civil elected government of the country. So there's good news and bad news here The good news is we're seeing a real effect of the Sanctions at the trump administration has put in place And it is causing disturbances inside Iran. That's as a general proposition in a good thing. Here's the bad news John. The bad news is that much like Kim Jong Un who I think is going to lash out and move. His weapons is program. I think you're gonNA see the Iranians were also too bad behavior in their case but for them to attack another tanker in the straighter for Blues. Look for them to increase the number of centrifuges devoted to their Once defunct nuclear weapon program look for them to energize organize their terrorist. Allies has a law against Israel looked for them at the far end of the spectrum to make another attack on Saudi infrastructure structure. I think all those saints will be on the table and by the way Newsflash the Iranians. It's it's the Islamic Republic of Iran. I could care less about Christmas. So Watch for this to start occurring Both in the case of junk in the case of Iran frankly over the holidays in into the early part of the year so bottom line in both parts of the world Fuck Lop Because I think both of these criminal regimes both North Korea. Iran are GONNA WANNA step out and And they also close this John on they also recognize the turbulence in Washington. Right now. Distraction of Your Agency distraction of the Congress wherever where you are and the political spectrum about that that reality is that it ties down the executive branch and makes the executive branch. It's less capable of responding quickly to these kind of crises over the belt way. Do we go from here. Admiral I mean I get emails from our our Friends in Greece that the Turkish people they they're getting refugees on along the islands and then going to the mainland land and everybody's complaining except the government in the I think the situation John is the better Tarini in C- He's getting as confused. As is the land situation along the Turkish Syrian border and in both cases as you're seeing upticks in the numbers of refugees who are trying to get away from these war torn areas leaving Syria leaving Lebanon which also experiencing way it's disturbances in all of that bleeds across the achieved. See coming from from the Turkish land mass onto the Greek islands As you and I go no. There's a new government in Greece. You'VE PROBABLY MINISTER MR which donkeys. He's I think he's doing a very good job. Thus far in dealing with it or Greece is a small nation. Over ten million people can't support Tens of thousands of refugees indefinitely the way that for example Turkey can so of the European Union has got to work closely closely with Turkey to try and keep a deal going which was in place for a while to keep the refugees on the Turkish side of that border. This is all part of why President Earn Alon has a cut a deal with Russia working with Working against our Kurdish allies. He's also there. He earned one is also very tired of these refugees and is using them as a bargaining chip to. I'm trying to get more economic assistance coverage from the European Union. Admiral you would ahead of NATO for Four years four years I president trump went there and they spoke to a piece and then he got upset and left. What do you? We're here behind the scenes. I think there are three centrifugal forces that are kind of pulling at the NATO alliance at this point John. What is France in President McColl? who made the comment Just before the data summit that NATO was quote brain.
