"Listed keep Okay so i'm going to finish this off today with something. I feel petty about. And i think this is gonna be a little controversial I don't like the met ball. I find it garish. I find it tacky. I find it an over. The top display of excessive wealth during a time of inequality And i find the weird kind of like blind celebration of it. Among people who. I think should know better to be a little bit strange. It would be like if everybody just kind of decided that we were gonna have. We're if it's like. If i had a wedding and i was just gonna serve veal and expected. Nobody say anything about it. Like look there are worst things in the world than being wealthy and glamorous and beautiful and wearing address the could feed a family of four for a year for one night so you can get photographed a bunch of times there are. There are worse things in the world than that. You know like you're not you're not. Actually you know beyond saying kim kardashian or exxon you know but it wasn't there to be clear out right into this riyan dashing or not exxon like there's like but it's gross. I find it to be very like i. I understand that it's fun to look at pictures from it and stuff but i find the weird like over celebration of it. I guess maybe this is like what i was saying before but my dad being like anti rich people. Maybe this is just my dad talking through me. But i just find it to be like a really a weird display I think that the exclusivity of the guest list is yucky I love the museum in new york. I used to go there all the time. It's it's a. It's a crown jewel of american culture and it displays like. There's just incredible stuff there. I love the museum. I hate the met gala. I just i find it. I find yucky and say man. I i hate the museum. So that's the thing that gets me right. Why are they raising money for the museum. What they should be doing is stealing. That shit. back is turn seriously counterpoint..

"And i hate the like an. I turned out fine justification because like i did out fine in that. I'm functional but like there are things that i kind of think were liabilities rather than assets as i was growing up with this stuff so i mean like a person who's going to be a mom in like six weeks i'm sorta like to. I like when i'm watching. You know aladdin with my kid for the first time do i. Am i gonna turn and be like you know if you want. You can be gay like you don't have to be just like these people in this movie. You know princess. Jasmine looks like that. But you don't have to be that skinny like how much how much contextualisation you i need to do before i'm like overreaching and does not letting my kid enjoy something. All my aaron living is peak media like you don't have to show them the movies you think are going to be so damaging milana's a great example of a princess movie about a person who's loyal to their tribe and is trying to figure out a problem that has you know been in their in their entire culture for generations I mean and no love interest rate. No love interest It's just kinda tune out. I mean all of the ones where they started having people of color. You don't get to have love. Which i think is its own pro. It's really still back. Great of messaging could be better. But i mean look. I can't tell you how to raise your kids. I think you'll do what you're comfortable with. And like as my mother always says like women will no. I believe that you know what is best and it is your child but i also think like you're aware of the problems so i think as far as having your kid be aware of everything that other people are watching. I mean as as much as i watch disney movies. I love the mary. Kay nationally detective agency series where. They're literally wearing tights. Undershorts and tee shirts with long shirts underneath in stupid hats and the riding their bikes in breaking the house. Trying to solve mysteries. No one asked them to solve my vibe like that was the most i cared about anything as a kid so i think you know your kid will tell you to like if i'm into this or not my niece we've tried. I mean my sister was like great frozen exists in. No one in the family was happy songs bad. She didn't like it she was like it's very boring. It's too girly. Was her note. My brother or my nephew was like we have no like. There's just nothing for boys. And that's like i get zero out of it so i think you know the kids have opinions. Let you know yeah An on that. I wanted to ask you a little bit more acute about lake the experience of being a disney princess at the park. Because you were your job was to be like the real manifestation of what people expected the princess to be in person so like. Can you share what you were coached to do. And like how you were coach to act and like what was the strangest or most awkward situation that you had to sort of like.

"In disney movies. Oh yeah i've been come on the cinched waists you know it's it's essentially no different than barbie dolls right. I mean it's like these super you know. Everybody has long hair. Because i guess girls don't have short hair. I mean i can't think of anyone. Snow wave as a little. Bit of a bob cut rapunzel hair and it turns brown. And now i'm regular. My magic is going only. Your hair is long and beautiful. Your waist is so thin you don't have ribs long. It has to be neck thin ways cartoons. Lot of bouba j- just say very specific about as a kid. I'm going to get that. And then i didn't and i was like oh man i'm from. If you do dope clamoring. We have a moment aside to talk about when jasmine isn't a taxi red bikini. Oh my god moment. Fake news show is under like a from. Yes she's like she's seducing jaffar. You're so. Tom findlay spins writing. That one down i mean but yeah princesses have some very specific measurements. Let's say yeah. I think that it sort of makes. Here's a thing. I wanted to talk about whether or not. We all think this messed us up at all. Or if it taught us things we had to unlearn Like i think. I had to unlearn a deep association between being pretty and being good and it's not just disney that teaches that message. But you know it's it's like other other kids media does too but just disney as the team in the in the picture and you know as a little kid you know watching a movie where it's like the most beautiful woman is also the kindest and the one that is the most deserving blah blah blah blah associated with kindness and beauty or like goodness and beauty with something that like. Isn't i think that i i spent a lot of energy. Not thinking of like trying to think that you know what i mean. Can i tell you something. Weird that i've noticed in history. Yes so i do this. Podcast called no blood where i go through like nobles in history and whenever i'm talking about like a female a female nobler an interesting woman in history more often than not it's like oh and she was uniquely beautiful. She was just stunningly beautiful. And i reached this point where noticing that trend that in the early modern period especially in western history. The interesting women who got written about were the most beautiful and then it's like because the only avenue for women to have any power or like free time. Our freedom was proximity to power which means like being selected to be the king's wife or the king's mistress and so it's like being attractive was a women's only avenue to power for like a lot of period in history. And so now. I feel like the to get conflated of like being interesting and cool and being written about and influential and being pretty then become the same thing and a lot of people's minds Which i think absolutely sucks Achille do think that there any other aspects besides the beauty and goodness link of princess culture. That sort of like messed with your head as a kid totally and i mean you say the kid but i'm like on learning still like i definitely think that i i learned that like you're supposed to like make men good and then they'll be the prince like bell goes to the.

"And. Welcome back like. I said before the break listen. I are both very excited to talk about this topic. I want to start elissa by asking you. How excited are you for the diana movie with kristen. Stewart your big princess. Diana's dan you guys. I have the lamb sweater. The sheep sweater whatever. It is the red one with the one black sheep. I own that shit. I got on weightless so. I can have that shit. Okay elissa i have the other one. That says i'm a luxury few can afford okay. So we're both basic and go to instagram and town and country. Which where i think i. I saw the advertisement a year and a half ago. But no i love lady di i love her. I can't wait for it. I'm sure kristen. Stewart can do no wrong and i wait with bated breath. Yeah it's getting good reviews. It's really exciting But you know it's part of the reason that the movie is getting such good reviews because it's such a story it's a story of new pain and strife and conflict and that is something that is in contrast pretty absent from princess stories. that are packaged. Unsold kids so. I'm really excited to talk about. Princess culture. The way that it influenced all of us Especially as people who grew up little girls and Let's get to it. So i wakes up every morning and sings a song about how much she loves reading books and hates all the stupid people in her town. It's danish worte. thank you for having me. It's such a beautiful introduction. There goes the baker with his tray. Like always you know. There's some basic i hate everyone i ever meet me. I'm the smartest one in town. And i know it. I think you had a tweet about this like it's no wonder people did like bell. Cashews bow there goes the baker with his trail. Like always the grouping like well there goes balancing her daily means song about and excited to welcome her back to the show you know in lover and she was literally disney princess for a job at one time. So she's kinda the resident expert on this topic. Akilah he was welcome. I am here. i'm loving it. I just wanted to advocate yet about the princess diana movies which is like getting good reviews because the other ones are also but i love even the bad ones. I mean yeah. I will say i cried at naomi watts performance. But that's my emotional. He has nothing to do with really good actress. She's really good actress So we're all here today to talk about prince culture. This is a topic that i wanted to talk about for a long time. Because i think it's really pervasive especially in the lives of american girls and women unless you had parents who were like actively interfering with your interaction with princess culture you kind of absorb it. I read somewhere that something to eighty to ninety percent of little girls in america have exposure to an interaction with princess culture. Still like. it's still like that. Even with the flooding of the market with other competing princess type archetypes disney princesses. And all of what they have spawned is kind of number one in a little girls minds. So i wanna start with you akilah What is princess culture in your mind as someone who actually was a princess. How did you witness it manifest. Yes in my culture Yeah i mean at disney. It is incredibly overt like for them. It's truly just like a revenue stream so like Like that is..

"Is generating more money. You know it a person that owns real estate and that is the base of their net worth or buying and selling commercial properties is is part of their business. Are they working to earn that money. No and also earn like. Here's the thing. is that if you like. As of today looked at a map of the globe of all the countries the united states and mongolia still leading infections of covert. And so what this bill would do is lock in payments until twenty. Twenty-five aaron does. Is there anyone who can look around us right now. And and like our thinks solved like a refund. We're not fine and so like i don't understand why in a world where people still you know. Depending on what states you live in schools. Are you know. Classes are being closed. People are having infections. Spread and parents are still struggling. And i i don't under- i guess when he does things like this. It's like who are you protecting. You know what i mean like. Are you worried about fucking fraud or like this is this is. It's a it's it really. It makes me mad. I think that there are some things that you can look at that. He's like mr centrist but like literally who the fuck he protecting here like. Why wouldn't you want to help families. It makes sense right right this like a massively popular proposal lake stevens. He's the only person making controversial right. He's not centrist. He's way out in fucking. What is it. They janet from another planet. He's janet janet from another planet on this. It doesn't it doesn't make any sense I'm glad that on capitol hill people that came out swinging the usual suspects. The heroes like senator. Sanders representative john. Paul shroud brown came out and they were like what are you talking. This is ridiculous It seems to me like mansion is kind of grasping at straws to figure out a way to delay this proposal that would benefit groups of people in the us that should have been addressed like a generation ago. Like you know the the child tax credit thing is is a piece of a proposal includes family leave which we've discussed on the show and like if we were able to get the family leave that they're currently proposing we would be about halfway to wear sweden was in the nineteen seventies like. We're not. we're not trying to like like just heap on the benefits. That were none. What we're trying to do is be reached. The bare minimum. Were literally like again. Second to last in the world in helping people. So i just. He's really depressing. Me erin i really i and the problem is we know we need and we know we need his vote. But yeah what's it gonna take. Yeah i mean here's another thing is work requirements. don't work they cut poverty. They don't improve employment outcomes. They don't work. All they are is like this weird punitive thing that people do that the do nothing except give kind of hateful people a sense of satisfaction. I dunno right. It's like it's like to them. Because in the fundamentally like we said a minute ago Taking care of kids raising children is work. And he's like no. You're gonna prove it to me and i want you by the way to go get a job. That doesn't pay you enough so you can't afford childcare because you need this in the first place it's.

"Or just harmless dress up and who hates the met gala. All this and more right now. Okay news i wanted to start on a couple quick hits of news first before we get into the part where we have to talk about joe mansion again because i e yeah look my adopted state of california rejected a republican effort to recall governor gavin newsom on tuesday. I'm really proud of the state that i have lived in for only three years. I'm very proud of it physically a referendum on whether or not we want to turn our state into a sort of florida west and we said no. We don't wanna do that And so i'm i'm proud of us and i'm proud that my state gubernatorial drama resolved in a positive way in much the same way that your state's gubernatorial drama resolved positively. It's the system worked. I guess in these cases. I guess i another thing. I wanted to say quick before we move onto the next thing is I did get a little jolt of shoddy friday on tuesday. When i saw how many members of the national political media were so horny to turn this into a story. That just wasn't there. It was just like stop. I'm sorry that you didn't get to drone on for five hours. Like hand wringing over what the results might be because the results were in in like forty minutes erin forty minutes forty minutes and i also wanted to add that in the city of los angeles as of last night Angeline a one name. I think she's I don't i'm not that familiar with angelina. I believe that she's a sex worker. She appears on billboards and she's very sexy Beat caitlyn jenner in los angeles. I mean sorry caitlyn better look never how about. We stopped putting caitlyn jenner on the news as a serious politician. Caitlyn clots ended about one point one percent. I think yesterday yeah of a one point one percent which is pathetic. Like wanna be a meglomaniac. But i feel like i could have done better. You one hundred percent have done better especially if you if you added a funny nickname to your middle name. You'd have done better with joke. Votes earth did like it was look. I'm california is far from perfect and has a lot of problems and gavin newsom as far from my favorite politician. But i feel like today. Gavin newsom is if i were him. I would be like a basketball player. That just sank a crazy shot holding my follow through and like backpedaling. Through my day but definitely didn't backpedal to french laundry. No no no backpedal to in-and-out i think appropriately seems an appropriate celebratory. Lunch spot. one hundred percent. I went in and out now for breakfast. Animal style so eliza. You're watching something this morning on wednesday. I didn't get a chance to watch. Because i was prepping for the show in its morning year. And it's mid day there. Can you tell me a little bit about what's going. On capitol hill. That isn't a slap fight about something that causes us headaches. I gotta tell you. I was both traumatized and heartened by what i saw. Today i watched simone biles michaela maroney aly race. Men and maggie nicols testify before senate judiciary committee about the fbi. Mishandling of the nassar investigation. And erin i was blown away. These women michaela moroni especially gave vivid testimony about her recounting. Of what larry nassar did to her that she gave to the fbi in two thousand fifteen On her bedroom floor sobbing that the fbi did fucking nothing with for fifteen months. An inspector general report revealed that not only do the fbi not do anything. But i mean will. This also goes into the basket of not doing anything..

It's like it was a joke tweet. I don't. I don't think i'm going to successfully get fetus asleep through the night while i was going to reply to you try bourbon but then i read some the other comments. I was like these. People are not here for comedy but wasn't nice to see a lot of people. I had like the worst. It's just terrible isn't it. Didn't you feel like since that was. That was nice to be like no. I don't have anything. But also i remember. That was horrible. Yeah that's nice. Sometimes you just want someone to commiserate. Yeah or you know like or make or or give you goofy advice. I like goofy advice. That's like. There's no way i would do that. Somebody said sleeps on like a bet that made me laugh. Would random people give me advice on twitter like random like you've got an egg or whatever you know in your profile is like i didn't make it this far because i'm stupid and don't know how to do in.

"No off years okay. House has been capped. Let's talk about what we're feeling petty about this week. Michaela you want to start us off. What are you feeling petty about. Oh i don't know if this is even pedophile this is a pedophile. Petty i I started watching some reality. Tv because There was this Environmental report came in that. We're all gonna die. So i thought How do i get over this Wake up in the middle of the night panicked. So i just started watching Like my unorthodox life or my so called on orthodox lifer and also because a lot of people have been telling me. I should do a. I should do an impression of This this woman. Julie heart heart anyway so really could. So here's my take away from reality television. And i just hate it. I really don't like reality. tv. I think it's i mean we all agree that it's it's just so i know it's fake because i actually used to log tapes for the interviews and i know that how much the the producers are coercing the guests to to to say certain things into create hostility and angst where there isn't any. I know all this but this woman. Julie heart is very impressive. She was you know in this very ultraorthodox community where women have no voice. No say and you know just the horrible things of fundamentalism that it brings which is that women are second class citizens and it's it's garbage and then she nali left. It took her bisexual daughter us with her and her other daughter who's tormented and starts this. Fashion line has an elite modelling company like. This woman is absolutely incredible right. So why the fuck is she on. Tv show like i just nobody. Nobody on reality shows are as amazing. Like trump wasn't the big fucking crazy boss that you know gets to fire. People like they burnett took him on painted a bunch of garbage furniture gold and said he's a rich man and then america baden like he's the richest man and if he were my president he'd be the best businessman for america ever. And it's like no there's garbage secondhand furniture that they literally painted gold and i. I'm excited for this woman. But i also i don't i don't buy. It are not buying it.

"And it was my first job out of college. So i was like. Wow i think i am not cut out for the workforce like this is not for me so we My other two girlfriends who are also paralegals we. We came up with really nasty nicknames that we would mouth whenever she came into the paralegal pit and it was the only thing that one everybody saw it like even the other associates saw. And we're like she's really awful too. You know nobody wanted to do it because they say anything to her because they thought she was the anointed and the best is she thought she was so nice to me like that was the part that was the hardest and so i. I wish that i could say. I had some very sophisticated way of dealing with but we had really awful nicknames for her that and we would talk shit about the whole way home in the car and it was the only thing that made it better and we just found out so much about her.

"Because i think maybe they might feel a little bit left out now in some ways. Almost bad not totally bad. Just it's just a the shift has been huge just huge plate shifts. I feel like in the environment. That i'm in so i don't know that's just me I feel like it has to do with our expectations of people. I think we Expect women to be kind to us when they're not. We're upset about it. But we don't have an expectation of men so men go get to go round being villains grabbing titties. And we're just like well. That's just the name of the game and that i guess i just have to deal with that because you never expected them to have your backing it back. You probably expected them to make it harder. And so the as a result they get away with worse. Behavior is You know one of the reasons why women get called out for protecting cuomo when you know. A bunch of men were also. They're turning a blind eye and shoving files in corners and in trash bins Yeah we just have like our expectations for men are just so low in workplaces Something that this cuomo business has kind of made me think about is I read about the ways that cuomo treated people who complained about harassing behavior and my brain goes back to my time. When i was working in financial services i worked as a at merrill lynch during the crash in two thousand seven. Two thousand eight. And at the time i was like the guys i work with are great but now looking back. I'm like you know. I felt uncomfortable a lot. I uncomfortable a lot of the time. And i don't think back then that it was okay to say. I don't like it when you're asking me questions about my love life you're sixty you know. This is a weird thing for you to be bringing up with me. I don't like these questions. I don't like going out to work happy hours. And you know having a person put their hand on the small of my back i. I didn't ever like that. But i just thought that that was the way that was just a thing that you had to deal with you know and i'm glad that it's not something people have to deal with because i think a lot of or anymore and moving forward because i think a lot of energy gets wasted on trying to convince yourself that you're okay with it when stuff like that is happening around you. And then as a result you like temporary expectations of all men that you work with and you just assume that they're going to be the ones that are doing bad shit like Like a kilo mentioned and you assume that women are going to be the ones that save you from the bad shit and that's not fair to either men or women because you know i've seen enough counter examples of men who are not pieces of shit to know that the men who are have no excuse like when men speak up. It's so it has such a bigger impact than when women do. I mean in in my last job The other woman. I worked with had this unspoken thing where if she felt like she wanted to speak out about anything i would always say. Hold on wait. What were you saying can can can..

You know the existence of lucille ball is part of the reason why that recurring conversation about like are women funny. Can women be funny and beautiful. Why it's so annoying. Because the ball was in the fifties want like beautiful one of the funniest people in the country and like super smart and the fact that we just like develop amnesia around like every new generation of smart funny women. It's it's just like it's very frustrating. Also i just wanted to comment really quick on. Ask a man as a subject for anything women asking men what they find. You don't need to ask them. They will tell you they will chime in when nobody asked. We'll see this is the funny part about the episode is that it starts out by arlene doll saying that there had been studies. Done saying this is in the in the late fifties saying that when asked women who they dress for women said they dress for other women which we have heard for forever. It was true back then. And she's like that's crazy. Why would you dress for other women. And then she talks about asking a man she literally says even if he doesn't know the answer he'll usually tell you something that he thinks is correct. And i was like i was optimistic. I was like oh here. We go and then she's like don't wear pants. I will say one thing though i have. I've developed a theory. Now that i know that. I'm like third trimester down in the corner to the end I have developed a new appreciation for like ten ti- dresses which i've talked about and i've also developed a new understanding of. Maybe why pants were not in favor for a long period of time in human history. Because if you're spending years and years being like pregnant or postpartum pants are not not great. You know like you don't wanna have like a totally look. I still have to be careful how i squat. And in what is scott but that sounds really awesome and this just you just like stumbled upon it. I randomly saw. I randomly an advertisement for it because like get targeted with podcasts from the nineteen sixties. But it's it's fucking delightful. it's great. that sounds awesome.

My laptop jenner's tequila is called eight. One eight directs. So yeah so. The streets said kendall jenner starting to heal brand with zero knowledge of on mexican culture and colony eight when they think is gentrification the eight one eight does not claim calabasas. What about those smaller family owned mexican tequila scholar brands. They deserve the hype. And so now the tweet that went viral. That i did see. So the issue is the fact that she's naming the eight. She's really not funny when she's from calabasas which is like the rich part of the when he was also probably lived in. Encino on again is the rich part of the day when eight valley super super valley. But it's been terrible of our above. There is a little bit different situation financially. Ya but see years you bring up a good point. Let the tweet said. Why don't we give the attention to the mom and pop brands. And that's so true like white. Why don't we warming because we like what we like to think. A companies have done better job making better tequila branding. It better But do i am. I offended as a mexican offended. That kendall is starting to a meal chettle speaking. I'm not offended. You gotta look at it like this to. I'm sure the people producing the la are from cadiz. Go so right. Yeah so that in a way she's generating jobs down in mexico more. Holly i mean it's taken from the mexican heritage but she's also financially given given to the people in a way i mean they're working for but you look at george clooney right. What does he cuss amigos. First of all people love to hate the card ashes number one number two eight one eight probably pissed people off so you know that's the thing that she has some strikes against her and that's what's helping. You would also sucks though. I'll say this. I don't think people were coming at the rock. They coming at george kalonzo weather coming at for brand only female. That's another way that. I i see what you're saying. I see why it within a female though. It's the cardiac. I think more than right leslie. I am dj for them. And i know you're going to play you know you're going to be polite here. But other people love to hate on them right. Oh yeah absolutely. Like they have to really. It's like they're walking on eggshells almost the questions. They just have to be very careful. Which is why i think they should have probably thought of the name a little bit more. You know but then again who's to say like like you said jeff. They grew up in the eight one eight. It wasn't. It wasn't the hoodie way. But it was still the eight one eight personally. I don't have a problem with it. I would have done more research on the name and she could've done like all the sisters together like you know named it. Four sisters done that in spanish lot. Cut akilah yeah. I like that would have been cool. I hope that when she campaigns for this tech you can talk when she campaigns for this tequila. I hope that she incorporates. The real eight one eight campaign you know like like panorama city point did all those cities and so more in san fernando. Panorama city pajama friggin. A north hollywood is where i was born so like i just really really hope that that she she you know incorporates the actual culture the actual mexican culture and eight when he culture in her campaign by the way the keillor's produced by gopher essay are the seven distillery. And how these again. She's providing jobs in a way. And and and i guess taking from us as mexicans culture right but i tequila that grew and kendall at you need some models for your camp pay the cruise show including you. Got the crucial baby girl.

News of the World Movie review

"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative. But it's safe to say that's not what's most compelling about news of the world at least right now michael and i were discussing some of the titles for possible review on the show you lean toward news of the world saying this it would feed naturally into talking about how we get our news and what the news has been lately having now seen it. I'm pretty sure. I know what you're getting at but i'd love to have you explain and i'm eager to hear if you think this topicality is to the movies credit or to its detriment. Well you know when you talk about any movie or anything that's worth talking about in the culture yet. You have to respond to the times. You're living in doesn't mean that everything gets bent toward particular historical malay. Were in right now. I mean it's it's it's just sort of stunning. How distracting everything in the world in our country least is is crowding out so much of our head space for anything else and it's I think i think what's going on in news of the world at least As greengrass co wrote and directed it is you. Have you have a film. that's speaking i think. Directly although not too bluntly a to certain strains in the american spirit and the american sort of rugged individualism western ethos have a guy like Tom hanks character. Kid who's a civil war veteran The film takes place right around. The same time is john. Ford's the searchers it's It's texas in eighteen seventy. The searches was two years earlier. And you have a very similar plot line right you have essentially if you want to boil it down to the utter simplicity. Have you have an anglo older white male who wants to you. Know who ends up Rescuing and saving i guess with quotes around it A young girl from the clutches or the life. she's known a living amongst the native american tribes comanche searchers. And the kiawah here in this story

Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine

"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now

What A Day

What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?

"Let's talk about what went down last night. Akilah quick first impression here. All right. So I was prepared for this debate to be just as annoying as the first one and generally speaking I don't think it was it was quieter and less interrupt. The mute button function was good for the majority of the first answers to the moderator's questions. By the end although senseless non sequiturs started creeping back in also say that the moderator last night Kristen Welker was way better like so far ahead of Chris Wallace several weeks ago you know she kept the candidates on topic she forged ahead with better more relevant questions whenever trump threatened to devolve into conspiracy theories and generally speaking she seemed comfortable being there. So that was the VIBE. But Gideon, let's talk about what trump did last night how would you describe what he had to say? Yeah I definitely agree that it was more toned-down but on the substance I, think trump still acts enlarge part like he's running into. Kept, trying to cast his opponent as a career politician and one who was corrupt he brought up that hunter suffer example, but it didn't quite and it was a little bit hard to follow, and that strategy allows him to evade questions about his own term as well as his vision for the future he failed for instance, offer coherent message on the biggest crisis of his presidency covert nineteen and he at times tried to make the Democratic ticket seem more to the left than it is trump. Seems to always have Bernie Sanders on the brain and several times. He came back to the same point about Biden being a longtime politician who hasn't gotten anything done. But there was at least one specific moment where the strategy failed and he pretty remarkable way by turn to the camera and said, the debate should be about the families of people watching and not what the two candidates were talking about and trump kind of fell into a trap with a terrible answer. Here's a clip of that. This isn't about there's a reason why he's. been up all this Malarkey. There's a reason for he doesn't WanNa talk about the the the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family it's about your family and your family's hurting badly if you're making less than if you're a middle class family, you're getting hurt badly right now you're sitting at the kitchen table this morning to decide what we can't get new tires their ball because we have. To wait another month or so or are we going to be able to pay the mortgage who's going to tell her? She can't go back to to community college there the decision making in the middle class families like I grew up in. Scranton claim they're in trouble we should be talking about your families but that's a last thing he wants to talk about I wanted to say I wanted to tell. Me What is it? Ten seconds Mr President go political stupid. Let's get off this China thing and then he looks the family around the table everything just a typical politician I see that's. Difficult politician. That's why I got elected that. Let's get off the subject of China let's talk around sitting around the table. Right come on Joe you. Okay. So if we're following the logic here, trump is coming off as saying I'm not a typical politician I don't care about your family. Almost. Literally, what he's getting at that moment along with one word trump backed away from raising the federal minimum wage were really out of sync with what's going on in the country among working families. So a Gila, what did you make of trump last night? So I mean personally, I'm not giving US seventy four year old man props for not screaming like an infant during a debate like he's been here long enough he I don't know how to act by now. But in terms of the content of his answers, there wasn't really much worth talking about like. You said trump didn't really WANNA talk about his record at all at one point. He did say that he takes responsibility for covert but then he immediately pivoted to the same old static about how everything is China's fault and other points he blamed. Democratic. Governors and criticized overall continued to downplay the virus saying that schools and businesses should fully reopen but he revealed no plan to deal with the spikes and infections. In fact, he claim that there is a vaccine that's ready and we'll be deployed in a few weeks wad squad we know

Chad H. discusses his journey with alcoholism in the family and AA

"For me You know like a lot of people you know Agassi could start with my sort of family history. Or you know it's all over my family. you've not had a you know grandfather die from it and its forties Cousins both my parents are alcoholics. In so you know for me personally. I believe that's genetic thing in my brain and and I I got you know but grew up in a fairly normal home may mean the one thing about both my parents. Being alcoholics is that They were actually. They were sober and they were going to meetings so I knew about a pretty young. You know I I'd go to the meetings once in a while with them and I when I was a young kid I didn't really understand it. I just knew that we'd go to the smoke filled rooms and eat sugar sugarcubes in the back of the room. But I didn't really know what it was but you know as far as grown up in the household. I mean no no. It's nothing crazy. I mean we always had what we needed. You know. We're kind of a lower middle income family but everything was good sell felt loved felt. You know nothing crazy One thing I was always kind of nervous kind of a worrier type kid high anxiety. I guess you could say coupled along the line to with a perfectionist. You know I was always one of those kids that you know. I wasn't the best or the first right away. I would be a screw it you know. I don't want nothing to do with it but again nothing. Nothing crazy in the household but You know when I was seventeen years old which can be of late for some people but I got drunk for the first time you know up to that point. I hadn't really had the opportunities to to drink alcohol or be around it And I remember I remember it like it was yesterday because it had such a profound effect on the When I was new a there used to be a gentleman that I always I kinda stole it from but he always used to talk about You know the first time that he had you know he loves love. Everone pizza but he couldn't remember a good point. Yeah we love chocolate ice cream. You know all these types of things but I can tell you almost. Yeah it's crazy right because it is such a profound effect you know so I remember. I was at a lake cabin with a couple of guys in Minnesota and we were drinking Bush light pounders big talk sixteen ounce cans and whiskey and I remember when I got enough in me to achieve that affect. I remember thinking. Wow this I like this. This is good you know and I needed to develop that phenomenon of craving right off the bat you know I'd never drank a and it was like that first time I couldn't get drunken. I mean I was doing shots at Akilah. I mean that just instantly the physical part just took over right off the bat blackout had probably the worst hangover had. But I love that. You know I'm more of a binge drinker you know I. I did that for the next five years. You know. I'm not a guy that could drink every day Get really hammered. Often run in. Maybe sober a couple of days on it once. I flipped that switch. You know I was gone you know and I never meant to do it. You know it was never like I'm GonNa go out and get drunk. It's like let's go have a couple of beers and just that certain point you know So I did that for age. Seventeen to twenty two now. I mentioned before that I was around a so I knew a little bit about it and I don't really know what happened like I'm one of those people that I didn't have any real external consequences. I didn't get in trouble nine. Everyone to drunk a lot. I got lucky I was in a smaller town. Fifty thousand people. So you know it wasn't like I was getting on ways going seventy miles an hour so but I would say the last couple of times. Well maybe the last few months I was drinking I knew there was off. I just knew I'm like I didn't drink like other people And I think that's probably where I'll calix drink with other alcoholics. Who the heck wants to be around some guy that you know going home at nine after three you know. I didn't relate to guys like that but maybe the second to last time I drank promise myself was gonna try not to drive anymore And I ended up driving in a blackout in. It was just kind of a combination that you know what I need to look at this. There's a problem here and I think it also helped that I was around some eight members. My Dad was a member I would go. He had a little store in my hometown. And see him in there. These guys in there hanging out and I knew they weren't drinkers you now and they were to smile in and they had this little gleam and they go through in Chad. Know that that kind of thing you know when you're still drinking like a you know that guy you know but I respect it and I don't know I just said you know what I probably need to go. There was this Tuesday night meeting that I knew about. I probably should go to that. I'm like I. I'm drinking way too much and I don't I don't have an answer. Why that is Surrenders a funny thing you know I just something clicked for me. I can't explain it in like from the moment. I made that decision that I needed to be at that meeting. It was removed from like. I didn't really think about it after that. You know and I don't know if that was a combination of that. I was still pretty young. I hadn't drank like for twenty years but it wasn't that big a deal for me. You know I I went in. I need to be here. I accepted that particular meeting of come to find out now is pretty unique. And I've been to a lot of meeting sense They kept it very simple. You know the format and it's still the same today. The format was what we used to be like. What happened what we like now. There wasn't a topic they would just call on members of the group that would come up and share And their whole idea was that it wasn't about it was more about. They would do that. So that would the new guy would come in and hopefully relate and then they could say man. I'm struggling to. What did you guys do and hopefully bring them along the path It wasn't about necessarily the new person needed to share its author. Chaz it was. Hey they're struggling. Here's what we do. So they basically said get home group that meets at the same time in place. Be At that meeting every week. It a sponsor and use that sponsor and don't drink and as far as the sponsorship thing I mean they weren't like this diehard you know you better call your sponsor every five minutes. I mean there'd be jokes awhile you know. Did you ask your sponsor about that? But it wasn't like a real hardcore and then as far as God and stuff I mean people talk about God and mentioned God fair and stuff but at that point I never really had a big thing about God. I wasn't anti-god but it was kind of like I kind of instinctively. I guess my thought on God. If there was a god was he didn't know the difference between me and a troop. You know. It's just kind of this this thing right and it's just kind of there and so I never was judging me Blah Blah Blah So I went to this meeting For seven years or six years I apologize and I was there every week. You know and and I didn't I never heard about ninety and ninety and some of these other things. I didn't even know what they were. I just do that. Can made a decision Drink anymore and I just accepted

My brother is like the most wonderful Really good-looking won the families. Yeah he's awesome seems Brat and gently trying to hook up with him in the way. Yeah well he's married but still. Yeah you should. You should one hundred percent But he was. He lives in Brentwood in Los Angeles and he has one bar he goes to. It's called cues and And he was there and he was holding court he was just like big man on campus and a casting director saw and walked over and was like you have enamored everyone around you. You are so fun to watch. I need to know who you are. And he was like okay and then He. She gave Her his card and was like the Bachelor I want you to be on the Bachelorette so we went through the entire casting process and the thing that people don't realize about the casting processes it takes a very long time how long for me it was like four or five months like a very long time the vet you yet to meet a ton of people. Yeah it's like that we are. I'll get into that part or you down the road but like it just takes a long time in that win that Swatch of time. That window of time he ended up finding someone and basically called up was like hey listen. I met a girl and now he's married to her so look down but he's one of those guys that like never burns a bridge like he is friends with everyone he's ever met. Yes and so. This was like seven eight years ago. Well now it's longer 'cause it was like seven eight years ago. When he told me about an auditor radio show in Nashville. And I used to do this. Radio bit where. I would go on auditions for like stupid commercials. And I'm not an actor at all but it was like a funny bit that I would do with my co-host where we'd like run lines for like meow mix commercials. Yeah exactly and so. I'll so excited. At My meow. Mix Commercial or like by China paper plate commercial than I can read this and then so I would go and I would bomb intentionally because it wasn't about me. I didn't want to be an actor. It wasn't about me getting the part about me having the next day of like what you didn't get the paper plate commercial like you could like. How did you screw up the meow? Mix Line now assets myself all the time how did you? Yeah and so be inconsolable. And My co-host like berating. The and it was like a funny bit. We did so then I became single and my brother was like hey man. I've friends with this casting director for the Bachelorette. Do you want to meet with them? And I was like this is going to be the funniest radio bit. Ever because I'm going to be like to do. She focused on yes and Lo and behold not to do she. Just the right amount of do should. Did you go in with your normal level of Douche or did you add some extra to try to like to try to throw them off and try to get the whole big going I went in like Super Laze fare? So they It was at a hotel in Nashville. And I like was. I can't believe I did this at the time it was in assessing but it's it seems so big. Timea. I told them I said. Hey Listen I've got a morning show at this. Time is doing three shows as a morning show and then I have an afternoon drive show so I have a window of like eleven thirty to twelve thirty that I can do this. I have a hard out. Yeah and they were leg and they're like okay fine totally but in their minds who I think is you know. I think they knew your brother. And they were probably. Maybe he's the big Lebowski as well. Maybe I don't know so I go to this hotel and I get the lobby on the first guy because I have a heart out. Yeah so I go that. I'm wearing like a Jean Jacket. And like probably this exact shirt actually. It's probably this outfit but with Jean Jacket. Which I've seen you in a few times because you wear that to rehearse yes. I have a uniform so I get there and I look around and every guy is in a suit because in their minds. They're like I need to look like I'm supposed to look when I get out of a limo. Yes and I was like Oh Shit. I am under addressed for this. Don't you hate FM? Yeah no no but but but in my mind I'm like this is great like this is such great radio. I'm starting off so bad so So then they they call me up and they sit they sit you down in. It's kind of similar to this situation. Y YOU DOWN. And it was two female casting directors and they started asking me questions and they're like they're like first off. Why the hell do you got to leave at four in like five minutes and I have. I have a radio show and they're like oh great. Do your radio bit and luckily enough. I had done my morning show so I'd already had done like four bits.

We need to see you in Los Angeles and I was like oh I guess I did. You made it to the next. So then they fly you out Los Angeles. And then you take a five hundred question. Ecology tests psyche. Val Okay by the way people don't realize which I think is think it's got. I think what they actually do as you take the psyche vow and they just have to say like in case someone goes rogue one that show they have to say what we talked about them and we tested them and they didn't seem crazy X Y and Z. I don't really think because I've seen some crazy people on reality shows yeah as that psyche will. Yeah where have you seen the questions? I was on a reality show so I had to take the psyche. Yeah we'll get to that later on keep on going with your story. Well the the questions of like do you want to be a park ranger. And they'll be like I don't want to be Park Ranger. Have you ever had feelings of hurting animals do do you exactly? Do you think that people are out to get you going to rethink the the Park Ranger question? When you hear things do they.

Strides in lung cancer lead steep decline in U.S. death rates

"According to a new report from the American Cancer Society Cancer Death rate in the United States dropped two point two percent from twenty sixteen to twenty seventeen. That's the largest decline ever reported in the span of the year. which is great news for us so second circuit grim reaper? Akilah what does the research actually say about wide. Those rates are dropping so there are a few reasons for the drop but before we get into them. Let's let's talk about what that two point two percent number actually represents so what's really driving. This is lung cancer. Rates and skin cancer rates And that's where they've seen the most progress so a lot of that is due to change behaviors in the population's less smoking wearing sunscreen but also there are much better treatment treatment options than there have been previously. The report did also say though that progress has stalled on other types of cancers those cancers are prostate breast and colorectal rectal cancers experts blame sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy food which can lead to hormonal issues and inflammation but they also blamed geographic economic an racial disparities in access to care and exposure to environmental toxins. So you know lots of factors right and these numbers are kind of more reflective of lung and skin cancer rates declining client versus all cancer rates overall declining and statistically lung cancer kills more people than breast prostate colorectal and brain cancers combined. So why are people more likely to survive lung cancer now. Yeah I mean a big part of that answer is how doctors are treating cancer now so imaging. Technology has advanced to a point that doctors there's are now accurately assessing the stage of cancer and its prognosis. So you know there's not all this over treatment that might lead to side effects In recent years more doctors have turned to less invasive options for surgery which leads to better recovery times and outcomes and immunotherapy has become way more widely used since two thousand fifteen so therapy for those. Who Don't know is essentially when you know? There's something that stimulates your immune system to help you. Fight the disease in tumors The same can also be said about skin cancer and it's also really important to note though that even though there has been progress. The progress is uneven across the country so these cancer death rates still vary between states that promote preventative healthcare like vaccinations and those that tend not to so perfect perfect example from the New York Times You are probably more likely to cervical cancer in Arkansas than in Vermont because Arkansas hasn't widely adopted the HP vaccine ax seen as Vermont has done for the past decade. Okay Well now it's time to address the elephant in the room. That is We're we are a daily news podcasts. And other Daily News shows did a whole two part special teams juuling so if you smoking in vaping usage is up. Does that mean that this progress progress could be loss at some point so it is tough to say right now so scientists are still studying the effects of e cigarettes when used for long periods of time and there are are carcinogens and e cigarettes they just don't know yet what the full cancer risk is. Because it's a new thing but based on the report the decline in deaths from lung cancer can can be attributed both to people quitting smoking and advances in treatment so if juuling leads to cigarette smoking then yeah we could zero versatile in this downward trend of lung cancer it would be bat. Yeah but one thing that is conclusive is that access to treatment and vaccines and advocating for equal treatment across socioeconomic and racial lines will in the long run ensure less people die from cancer.

Medicine in the Middle Ages

"Jack Hartnell joins joins us now. He is normally at the University of East Anglia but he joins us from Pasadena much better weather there. And he is the author of a new book called Medieval Bodies Life Life and death in the Middle Ages. Jack thanks for being here. Thank you so much for having me. Let's just begin with the question of what was different about the human body and the way in which it lives in died in the Middle Ages compared with now. Well that's the big question. I guess the question that runs through the whole of the book I guess the first thing to say is that what we think of as the Middle Ages even just the terminology that we use to describe this period as a kind of sandwich he won one in seems to refer to time after what people and history of until after the kind of the chief of ancient Greece in Rome so maybe the period begins around the five hundred and something before the rebirth. The release on same ideas in the fifteenth century or the Sixteenth Century depending on where we're talking about in Europe so we're talking about the whole of the tanks in Europe the Middle East North Africa so basically the world around the Mediterranean for the best part of a thousand years so that's a lot of different people different cultures and a lot of different approaches to the body. Potentially one of the things that I think. It's really important when we talk about. This field is to acknowledge that the difference in in in fact what's happening say in Europe and this is potentially very very different conceptually to what's happening in other parts of the world as well so we try and be quite focused in what I think and write about but broadly speaking again one of the interesting things is where we go to try and learn more about what is actually relatively misunderstood moment in the past so also a different kind of written sources that we can turn to but one of the things I'm particularly interested in as an historian is he's the kind of other kinds of traces of the body and it's kind of a cultural prominence might leave in visual culture immaterial culture and also we might. Let's turn with colleagues Bioch- Eulogy to actual physical remains of humans to find also two different things so to answer your question what the body is or how people can see who it really depends on some ways way. You'll look. I'm looking right now at the cover of the US addition. And it's a really Kaushal. I put it bloodless depiction in a way of kind of gory. Amputation of a leg and a replacement presumably with a with a wooden lag as conducted by what looks to be religious men but also with the assistance of several angels one of sort of carrying the dead lower limb away and the fellow. This is being done to is lying. There is closed his head kind of wrapped wrapped up. What are we seeing here? And there's no blood there's no blood so it's a really interesting image and one of the reasons why we wanted to put on the cover of the. US Edition. Was it really sums up all of the many different complicated. I cost me so I was just talking about so the image is actually from an altarpiece so a large wooden panel painted in oil paint made in Spain probably the very end of the fifteenth century and sometime in the fourteen ninety S. We think it's actually in the wellcome collection in London which is an amazing collection of history of medicine. And as you say you have these two men seemingly go about an attention This isn't a normal amputation. Things that's really important to say. And this comes up with the end of the book this object in discussions of amputation in various kinds of medieval surgery array European medieval surgery. especially is that Hudson. Petitions were very rarely on taken. This is a moment in which medical the efficacy of surgery in particular Akilah especially what we considered to be serious surgeries things like I'm petitions. It's not something that's often attempted. It's known to be very dangerous and often very unsuccessful zestful and so in a sense. This imports the world of kind of ill health from a more secular world and places instead in a spiritual one so the two people who are undertaking. This miraculous surgery are in fact. Saints the pair of Dr Saints Cosmas and Damian who are often identified identified as a pair in European medieval Christian would actually in Byzantine just. Wow they're very popular science in the Byzantine world so in and around the eastern Europe and Greece in. What is today Turkey in the Middle East and they are two doctors who were became kind of early saints of the Christian Church and often figures amongst many other things biggest biggest who appealed to in times of heating and this is actually story that's taken from the miracle narratives which surround these two saints and the story goes like this guy has has some kind of problem with his leg? Some text described as a cancerous growth others as a much more kind of irritation of the skin of the see. It may be as Almost a kind of deadening of the leg either way is like is in trouble and he falls asleep one night and dreams that he is visited by these these two saints who take Lenk Im. PT With The kind of stories talk about golden instruments and kind of be useful very unscaled instruments. That's right delicate. Fine things with the assistance of angels and replace it with a wooden like as it does maybe seemed like but actually with the leg of an African man who had died the previous day This leg is miraculously grafted on. And surely enough the man awakes to discover that his leg has in fact been amputated and it was. It wasn't necessarily a dream or wasn't dream it's been made real upon waking and he goes and continues to pay homage to the saints in. Thanks so it gives us a really interesting idea All firstly the practicalities of some parts of medieval medicine. People are aware it's dangerous to do this kind of thing so the fact that is successful is in itself a miracle but the very idea that we're talking talking about miracles and medicine as being a spiritual concern. I think drools back to to thinking a little bit about how in some ways similar today but in some ways right differently today especially in the often heavily religious context of the late Middle Ages how healing could be seen kind of boldly health and sickness could be seen as the physical moral spiritual so one to which we tend to a doctor a real life doctor physician or surgeon or apothecary or midwife but also in the Middle Ages to our spiritual limits of curious. It's quite striking image and mom which puzzled as interesting things together

U.S. prosecutors open criminal probe of opioid makers, distributors

"The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Federal Prosecutors I have launched a criminal probe of opioid makers and distributors. The investigation aims to decide whether pharmaceutical companies intentionally allowed OPIOID painkillers to flood communities. This sort of criminal investigation is usually reserved for drug dealers and cartels so this is pretty major. If the investigation results in criminal charges it could be the biggest prosecution of drug companies. He's that have allegedly contributed to the OPIOID epidemic Akilah. What are the companies that are involved in this? And how far has this investigation gone already. Yeah so six. Companies have confirmed in in regulatory filings that they received a grand jury subpoenas from the US Attorney's office in the Eastern District of New York. There's probably more but we do know about Johnson Johnson. TV If a pharmaceutical industries and mckesson Corp Ammiel Pharmaceuticals Mellon crowd and resources. Bergen Corp they have better. Yeah without headed out. This is a criminal investigation instead of a civil one on the show. We've talked about the big civil case involving Purdue Pharma Company paid a two hundred seventy million dollar settlement and its legal battle against Oklahoma Tiba also agreed to pay that state eighty five million now shortly after those settlements Purdue Pharma filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy. What makes this case different than all those other ones? So according to legal experts that the Wall Street Journal spoke with criminal charges require prosecutors to prove an effort to willfully fully end intentionally avoid requirements like reporting signs. You know like suspicious orders. For example that could indicate the drugs were being used for non medical purposes under the controlled Substances Act whereas civil charges can be brought to executives and companies for failing to report those signs passively in other words. The attorneys Ernie's general have to prove these companies intentionally hid the red flags about how the drugs are being distributed and misuse and communities across the country Earlier this year when federal federal prosecutors filed similar but smaller criminal cases in Manhattan and Ohio against a pharmaceutical distributor and a couple of executives Manhattan. US Attorney Jeffrey Berman Said said quote executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking wild. Yeah wow so. This is a big deal. And it's part of a movement towards reparations for communities that have dealt with this opioid crisis but what comes next question to your point about this being moved towards repairing what's been lost more than four hundred thousand Americans have died from overdoses from legal and illegal opioid since one thousand nine nine. That number comes from the some federal statistics six so obviously millions of dollars won't be enough ray. Several of the companies being investigated have already tried to reach settlements in the forty eight billion dollar range but if the ninety settlements from big tobacco or any kind of indication we should be looking in the hundreds of billions of dollars range much of the money one against big tobacco unfortunately went into budget gaps in different states rather than to you know rehabilitation and crisis services.

NBA Reveals Refs Missed 17 Calls for Rockets, 11 for Warriors in Game 1

"About officials during the NBA playoffs is nothing new, but the rockets apparently took it to the next level yesterday. Preparing a report to show that the refs cost them a trip to the NBA finals last season. We'll see how all this noise about bad calls affects tonight's game two and the rest of this series. But there's no easy answer. When it comes to officiating. James harden, something we talked about yesterday at great length. He's physical. He's unorthodox. He draws. Contact. He likes contact. He's always going to get a lot of calls. But the question is is he getting the right calls. It's important to remember. None of this is new because players and coaches have been complaining forever. You can Google Tim Duncan Joey Crawford or watch Phil Jackson, Pat, Riley work, the officials, and if you think Hardin is hard to officiate imagine trying to officiate a game, which akilah Neil. There's no perfect solution here, and you can't blame the rockets for at least trying to gain an advantage here a tight competitive series, and it may come down to how it's called. And it won't be the first time for sport. That's very difficult to officiate Steve Kerr had a little bit of fun with this yesterday at his press conference. He had this to say about fouls Kolding game on the focus should be on. Team's plane. Extremely hard me watching the he'll bowl teams just got after and competed. But you know, we just watched the tape upstairs. You don't think there were ten calls. We thought we got fouled in this is out goes, and every coaching illegal tell you the same thing, you watch the tape, and you hope man, that's that's. It's the nature game. It's it's very very difficult to officiate an NBA game. There's all kinds of gray area. And you know in the modern game. You know, a lot of players have have gotten really good at deception creating contact. Okay. Steve Kerr thrown out some verbal bouquets their complementing the officials. How would he feel if they lost game one? You know, they missed a lot of calls out there. The NBA has this two minute video review were they look at the calls. They missed and they admitted that they miss him calls in this game. My problem with the the rockets is let's live in the now, let's not be looking back to game seven last year. I got a problem with that. You gotta be Golden State. And it's now it's not you know, you guys caused us the NBA finals last year. Okay. How did you guys shoot? You miss twenty seven consecutive three pointers in that game. Was that the officials? Yes, that's because they were fouled apparently apparently all of them. What do they shoot like eight for forty four from three point range in game seven last year on your home floor? Yes. You didn't have Chris Paul? You should've won that game. But don't live in the past. And if you wanna bring attention to this now now all of a sudden, you're going down into your basement into your lab, and you're looking at all this. Video and say look at all of these miss calls. You had. Okay. The officials. Are you saying the officials are favoring the Golden State Warriors? Are you saying that's what I want to hear are these just bad officials is their favouritism?

NFL Trade Rumors and Buzz

"And they're like what is the buzz about here? And I was like we'll Cuyler Murray's Wayne, but he's not even gonna test. Yeah, there there isn't mother isn't a there isn't one specific thing that people are really buzzing about I think there's a several position groups that are really interesting. I think the offensive linemen and the receivers have some really interesting players receivers, particularly there's like the whole spectrum of type of players. I mean, you've got decay Metcalf. You've got I came and then he got Markey's Brown, and like smaller shifty guys you've got AJ Brown who looks like a running back playing receiver. There's just all kinds of guys in. So there there's a lot of I think if you're if you're gonna say there's buzzer excitement about anything. It's it's watching receivers as watching the offensive lineman, obviously defensive lineman is going to be huge this week. Oh. Ed oliver. I think that was actually kind of an interesting thing this morning, he weighed in I think it to eighty seven. So that was a good way for him. That's plenty. Yeah. That's like more than what Aaron Donald waiting now. Obviously that's a comparison. That happens a lot. I don't think he's earned Donald. But he's a very good player very explosive and being at two eighty seven is a very good number for him. We'll see how he tests. I think that he over the next few days he could generate a lot of buzz of among the receivers. Is there anybody that you particularly like, it's just one of your guys? I think you came about a starting to he started to I I mean, I'm standing out to you a little bit. As things you've said to me in tweeted, I'm reticent to say, he's my guy because I there are worries with him in terms of drops and his like, he's just massively few look at his web chart on. Oh credible through the measurements. It's just he's like ninety eight th percentile in every day. Big, man. I think actually I heard that he set the record for wingspan at receiver position at the combine almost eighty four inch got. Yeah. So he's got an insane catch radius. I'm a little worried about like. You know, his ability to separate his his consistency as a catcher, but he has immense upside I'll put it that way like his ability to get behind. The defense is really good. He's really long strider really fast. So I wouldn't necessarily say he's like, you know, my pound the table guy. But I do like him a lot. I'm really interested to see how akilah Harry runs think. He's just kind of one of those guys that's really polarizing right now because we're from Arizona state. He he's a guy that is like really big physical super productive. But he's also sort like, there's he's kind of in the alshon Jeffery shor mold where you're like Kenny separate or is he gonna have to only sorta use his body in wind contested catches and things like that. I think he's going to be really interesting. The Stanford guy JJ JR Sega white said Whitehead is really interesting player. He's like form basketball player box out king. Like if you watch him they just throw it up into the end zone.
