"Not necessarily wrong but from very limited perspective could you open you know and i usually started also with encouraging people letting them know that you know we're advance society and so i know that of you are able to look at things from different perspectives. And so i am. You know champion that in this meeting in this space. I want you to know that psychological safety exists here Compassion and empathy exists. Here this is not about me. Judging you this is about as having the opportunity alarm even from one another so that we can do better as a group as you can do better as a team has organization and that we can make a optimal impact in society in our families in our communities where we live and move exists. So the doing this in the work environment presents like so many interesting challenges at the same time. Is it presents some opportunity. You don't get outside so my my thinking goes that One of the challenges of the impact of d. I work outside of the work environment is that people are products of their environment. So for instance if you're white male and you leave work and you primarily hang out with and our friends with and are surrounded by primarily people in a homogeneous group very similar to you to other perspectives and other cultures and other ways of behaving and thinking etc that. Make it difficult for you to connect with an interact with and i think you know. The exposure is often a really good antidote to people's closed minded thinking in the you have the ability to somewhat affect that by by creating more diverse cultures. And you're creating the opportunity for people to see things from different lenses so you have the challenge of doing the you know at work. You can't really change what happens to people outside of work. So that's that's a potential challenge. See there on on the braeside. Though i feel like there's there's a real to create a scenario for people to try on new ideas in doing that. Though at least in the outside world people have the ability to potentially walk away and come back to a situation leader whereas at work if a conflict arises from doing this work. There's the challenge of you have to posing points of view. That can't seem to get along. You have to do something you'd have to get them to be able to work together or you have to get rid of somebody on the team. So have you dealt with any of the complications of like going into a company. Doing the i work having people try things on and bubbling up issues to the surface that were prior to that kind of sitting below the surface. They bubble up you kind of have to deal with the output of that. What's that been like for you. So i will tell you that. I've worked with various leaders to say okay. Now we've done these workshops. We've done these trainings. And as a result especially when it comes to courageous conversations right. You really start to get to the underbelly of things you really start to lift up the hood and be like okay. What's really going on in here and people just inadvertently out themselves so to speak right. They're thinking their perspectives. And what leaders do with that information. And i actually just had that scenario with a client who was like. Hey now you know. Based on how. Certain people have reacted to workshops and the training. I can tell that these people are some of them are really blatant racists. Some of them have really jacked up ideologies. Some people were literally came to me and said you know. I'm offended that we even had to do this. I have a right to think. And feel however want to think and feel and i come to the workplace and i do my work and i do my job really effectively and kind of who i am at the core of my personal morals and values system is really kind of like none of your business and so that was really interesting to me on. The leader was highway. Do i deal with a nice. I did it myself. you know. Culture is so much more than what you do. What you have within your walls so to speak is so much bigger than a transactional nature. And i said am. These individuals have a way of really negatively. Impacting your environment. That can be extremely costly to you as a business leader and so you have to make a couple of decisions. One is looking at individuals on saying is the. I guess you'd say the economic value of this person being a part of my organization because of their output worth holding onto in continuing to work with. Is there enough of openness kind of with that we can work through some of these challenges. If i can articulate to them the additional value of their feelings their morals their beliefs and how that impacts the workforce overall and in tennis person. Can i access some point within the individuals to help them to understand that or if they are so closed off. I have to think about the risks. Anything about risk mitigation right as an employer and as a leader is it worth the risk keeping this person as part of my workforce that could negatively impact and affect the rest of the culture in the workforce. And so it's not just about the people on the teams. But i when i spoke to leader said you know think about klein. Interactions and how the their perspective and how they see things and if they are. I guess you could say one as unapologetically authentic about their racism as i am about anti-racism. Imagine that what a couple of slighted comments or engaging in a certain dialogue or behavior how they could impact that client relationship and thus impact your bottom line or how someone hearing about engagement with this individual could impact your ability to attract and retain certain talent so you need to be thinking as a business leader that is not just a battle that one individual.
Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case
"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

"Three people had been wrongfully arrested and he was looking to get their information and presumably to help them out if they needed bail or anything, but he was kind of vague about where that all went down. So I'm wondering if you were able to see any of that or if that happened with the protests that was being led by Jalen. So I befriended I mean I was there the whole time and then I kind of tipped off for you know whole Car Fax thing, but I will say this as we were walking, you know, we did have a moment when we get stopped and you know, he was like almost like half half the people weren't wanted one area wage other half on you know, what back door and turns out be with you in with the police at that time from what I know one person almost got arrested, but you know as I was walking dead. You know it all kind of happened so fast, you know what I'm saying, like five or so minutes the situation was kind of over with and we can't marketing and so they could have been something you know that happened after I left but I did not know that jailing was so heavy me about making sure that this was a tawdry protest, you know a safe one. So, you know, that's just wasting that only lasted five minutes about somebody who's really really wants to see it being a safe and you know positive protest who know they could have gotten worse but I mean for me, like I said, I only know that at time one person off the tank we weren't getting arrested like didn't you know and we kept him moving and I left and I didn't think anybody did did get arrested but like you said, you know after the fact I thought you said three people I didn't see anything. I didn't see three people are here about that until after the fact better that people didn't get arrested, but we just hope everybody was safe and able to log Protest peacefully, I know that in Boston there was peaceful protesting and then some buildings got set on fire and looted and that of course then casts a bad luck on the entire beautiful peaceful coming together of people to fight for a very important cause right. I'm going to see someone that's true people want to forget that, you know, a lot of these protests are people. I mean, would probably say 85%.

I'm from here and you know, I'm not just saying look in Atlanta for a hot place to be when you coming here because I can bring a few years now knowing the news and the signup know like well, I'm from here and I know for a fact that I care enough about what's going on and I want to do it in my own soil because you could have just he could have put together in age. Could I put together a protest know in Boston and you know that and done the same thing, you know make it a peaceful protest, you know doing in boxes like that know like I care so much for what's going on and I can check what I see in my city of Atlanta and I have to be here I see so I heard that I've never seen in Atlanta. You know, we see all these things that happen, you know in other cities which is it's awful terrible, you know, what's going on is it's hard to deal with but I'm twenty-nine. So in the last twenty nine minutes what I've seen in the last couple days in Atlanta, I've never seen it seen on T was dead. That is not home town and know that wow, this is really happened in my family my town where I live where I'm from. So I feel like you know that right there trucks coming in him and said it's holding powerful, but for me to feel like I'm doing something I have to take it back to my hometown have to take it back to where I was raised to where I became the mayonnaise. I don't let people know that my boyfriend even heard I'm with you and I'm going to come back in my city and show you how serious I am how much care. That's really incredible before we started recording you were talking about how the media is portraying these peaceful protests and these protests in general because some of them have become not so peaceful. I'm curious what your experience at the protest was like compared to how the media has been portraying it because I think people aren't asking enough of the people who are actually their proteges. Sing what their experience was and they're just listening and looking at how it's being portrayed online and in the news and I think that's a big problem. Right? I agree for me. I find what you know, if mean I mean we forget that a lot of these do start, you know, ask people protest we missed that part because the media in the news are so engaged on the edge of my turned down over this and so drawn into it because at the end of the day with new unfortunate, but it's about ratings, you know about keeping up, you know with the ratings and about how long we keep you know, our people engaged and how do we treat you know inspections going and you know drama unfortunately is what keeps me going so I can go back to the first day that we have that here, you know in Atlanta Friday.

"On combat Alston commit you were down in Atlanta in the last few days is and you happen to photograph the peaceful protest. That was led by Boston Celtics Jaylen Brown. We would love to talk to you about how you got involved with that. If you guys haven't seen the photographs that he took they were really powerful images of this protest. So for me, it was it was random a friend of mine reached out to me and said do you want to go a protest today? You know, I said sure I've been wanting to go a view and there was one before that actually that I had missed. I'm going to know how bout no human the detail she found out through Twitter So lately, you know, Twitter's been that place the you go to to find the news to find the protest to find people who want to make money. Saying and so, you know, I saw it said, you know Jaylen Brown and he said, you know, I wanted to be a peaceful protest and for me that's what I want to be a part of. I understand they have not going on. But in my opinion there's different ways to go about it. And you know, if you can be applied to them as peaceful but still, you know, speak the truth speak your mind. I feel you know, that's where I'm all about. So, yeah, so I saw it and I decided to go and that's how I found out about it through Twitter. I found it out about it the same way as you however long in Boston. I'm interested to hear from your perspective because all I saw was limited Instagram lives and video. So your perspective on life kinds of things he was saying and the way in which he was leading this protest. Were you a Jaylen Brown fan? What did you think of him kind of prior to this? Cuz I know he's in Atlanta, Georgia. Area native, correct. Honestly, I didn't know he was from Atlanta. I kind of found that out, you know that day.

There's things we can do in our daily routines to affect positive change and you no matter how big or small your platform is. Yeah, and I've kind of looked at myself and how I can do that and I think about the foundation of my job or at least what I aspire to do with the ideals of journalism, right and it's to tell stories that bring different people and perspectives together and to hold companies organizations and the government accountable. And perhaps most importantly to give people the information they need about our society in order to help them make an informed decision and I'm really fortunate to get do that through the lens of sports package over the most diverse products the world has to offer right? So, like I said, I'm from right outside of Springfield and after graduation from college one of my first jobs was covering High School sports and getting to tell stories similar to Christian Wilkins sharing these stories of the people that have different perspectives than us is just it's so in life, you know, and it's like athletes and sports are just one of the best vehicles I think for talking about these issues and making people care about them. Absolutely and like I said, everybody has a different role to play. I think that another thing that's really important is remembering that people can change. I see this so much online people want to dig up old tweets. They want to cancel people if you see that somebody tweeted something stupid like five ten years ago, but they're clearly not that person anymore. You want people to change but you don't allow for the possibility that they have changed that they become a better person. It's not productive to be canceling people for who they were as opposed to a using your own time in your own life to make this world a better place and be allowing for the possibility that maybe somebody else wants to be a better person and is using their time now in the present to make this world better for the future somebody tweeted something like normal eyes changing your opinion when you learn new information. Anyway, the last thing that we want to talk about before we play this interview for you is today is Brianna Taylor's birthday. If you don't know who she was she was a black woman who was murdered by the police in her own home. It is such a messed up story. It's the kind of thing where it really makes you realize how twisted and messed up America's police system is like legal system is that this happened? Because Brianna Taylor was asleep in her own home and the police were attempting to complete a drug sting two months ago. They broke down the door to her apartment and shot her eight times. She was murdered and the thing that is so awful even more awful about this. First of all is that she was a BMT. She was on the front lines of covid-19. Team saving people's lives and not only that but the man involved in the drug ring that they were looking for had already been arrested earlier that day and was in police custody. So they murdered her for no reason in and absolutely nothing to do with her to begin with. It was yeah. It's like what happened to them and Wilkins grandfather and his home own home just years later and months ago with the African American man in his own home that was killed by a drunk white police officer that stumbled into the wrong house wage. Like it's just this is a pattern and we.

"I'm sure he gets a very patriotic prideful feeling and I think what this week if anything, I mean it should have happened four years ago in cap was doing this, but I think people are finally starting to realize that not everyone has to have those feelings when you look up a flag and I think song Adrian Foster really articulated this best if you didn't hear his interview on pardon my take on Monday's episode seek it out. It really says everything that needs to be said listening to him will really give you some perspective. I think like one of the biggest things that we're supposed to be doing right now is listening and to that end. I want to just quickly touch on a few things that we learned this week because we made a list hopefully it helps some people who are also trying to learn right now and then we are going to play this interview for you guys. This interview is really special. It kind of came about in an interesting way because Celtics Superstar Jaylen Brown used social media in the best way possible. He used social media to organize a peaceful protest. He drove 15 hours from from Boston to ensure that he could leave a positive and log Peaceful discourse during this protest and that just speaks volumes to like how much he cares about these issues and his native Georgia and the Atlanta area these incredible photos of Jalen at the March. He shared them on his social media and they were kind of going viral. So I reached out to one of the photographers just bought on a whim being like, I I really your photos were incredible. I would love to chat with you about them. His name is, tolston and it turns out that he is the grandson of a famous Civil Rights leader Andrew Young close co-worker and friend of dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And he went on to become a congressman for Georgia the United States ambassador to the UN and a multiple term mayor of the city Atlanta. I had no idea about that when I reached out to him. It just turned out to be an incredible coincidence dead. And you'll hear his interview a little bit later in the episode, but I think to go back to what we've learned a little bit one of the biggest things I think for me definitely. And for a lot of people is Thursday, we don't speak out because we're worried that we're going to say the wrong thing and because a lot of the times people do say the wrong thing even with good intentions. This has happened so many times you say the wrong thing when you have a good intention and the way that social media and cancel culture works you get absolutely raked over the coals for it and took it is a huge deterrent for people who want to help want to support want to be an ally but we don't know if we're going to say the right thing. We don't know the right thing to say and one of the things that I've heard so much this week, it's it's okay to be vulnerable and honest about a the fact that we don't always know the right thing to say and be that we're probably going to say the wrong thing at least once but that's part of this month. Process one of the educational materials that I was reading and I shared it in my Instagram story. They talked about shame the shame of realizing white privilege and racism in society and it said that page is paralyzing but that ends up being counterproductive and the.

"I believed him. So at the top I'm that's what I thought and then when I found out that I was wrong I was so ashamed and I became a huge supporter of what Colin kapernick was doing because you know what I have family members that have served this country in the military wage. My cousin Mark died in Iraq. He was the first Jewish servicemen to die in Iraq. You're not disrespecting them because they're fighting for all Americans. He was protesting police brutality and for somebody to say 4 plus years later that that's what Colin kapernick was doing when it's not like for Drew Brees to say I will never respect anybody who disrespects the flag or this country. It's like you're just respecting what this country should be about and what this country was supposed to be about by saying that so annoying to me like, it's Drew Brees. This is not some. All right, that doesn't get that Colin Kaepernick protesting by kneeling was never about the flag or the anthem like you said, it was about police brutality Colin Kaepernick home early said that and it's like someone tells the thing is million times. I'm doing this for this reason and you say to them know you're doing it for this reason you don't get to tell them why they're doing it home. So many people don't realize cap was just going to sit on the bench and like not do anything and just not stand for the flag at all, like dunno demonstration. Like the demonstration was just going to be him sitting on the bench. It was a Green Beret Nate Boyer who played for the Seattle Seahawks that had a conversation with Colin Kaepernick about the protests because Kaepernick suck out his advice for how to go about it and it was the Green Beret that recommended kneeling for the flag because it was a literal sign of respect to fall in service members home. So it's literally people took the exact opposite of what he was trying to do also named where is well? Yeah. That's why it's so disappointing for Drew Brees to not understand that you are a future home and quarterback and the way you lead the the diverse locker room that every NFL team has is by not even understanding what they're actually fighting for dead. You got four years to have these conversations with your teammates or even just to like listen to Colin Kaepernick saying over and over. This is why I'm doing it. How many times does he have to say why he was doing something if you're taking offense to it for something else that's inside you Drew Brees being incensed by what Colin kapernick was doing speaks to what's inside Drew Brees home and that that's his priority more than listening to what Colin kapernick was saying he was doing and the reason he was dying and that's the thing is yeah Drew Brees both of his birth father served in World War Two when he looks up at the flag or here's the national anthem before he goes out and takes the field..

"Yeah. It's really sad to see for whatever reason that people have turned this into a political issue when it's a human rights issue. It's not right or left. It's just a should be outraged at the loss of life at the hands of our government and specifically right now, we're talking about black lives innocent black lives moved and that shouldn't be something that divides you but like I said, there are people who have said things so much more eloquently about these social justice issues. I grew up in a pretty small suburb of Springfield Mass. So very high African American population and my hometown in high school offered a pretty different experience than the city it bordered, you know dead. Like Christian Wilkins of the Miami Dolphins via Clemson is from Springfield and throughout the course of this entire week. I thought back about Christian because when he was young and in school, he lived with his grandfather for a while in Framingham, Massachusetts and the Framingham SWAT team just bombarded his grandfather's house one day and bought a stake in the killed him right there and on his own property in his own home my God, and that's something Christian Wilkins has had to live with and in spite of all things grew up to be just this incredible young man, but he spoke out the other day and it's well worth your time to seek it out on Instagram because I don't know of an athlete that it takes as close to home. There's men like that in the NFL and that's also why like for Drew Brees then to come out the other day and take it back to the 2016 protests and talk about how he doesn't agree with that it off. Like Drew Brees read the room like I really respected you and it's just how tone-deaf could you be? Somebody said he donated five million dollars to covid-19 and I replied being charitable is incredible. It doesn't buy you a free pass to say whatever you want. Especially when what you're saying is factually untrue moment of super honesty here because I got called out for this on Twitter and I don't agree with digging up people's past tweets from years ago to attack them with it when they're clearly not that person anymore. But when Colin Kaepernick was kneeling at the time I was dating a guy who I didn't know happened to be a trump supporter. I knew that he had more conservative views than me, but I didn't know that he was going to vote for Trump and when he told me that I ended up breaking up with him cuz I was like, I can't date a guy who supports this presidential candidate and We've joked about this before but now it's more serious. Like I don't follow football really dead. Didn't follow it at all in 2016. Like I've never been a football fan. And so I had no idea what was going on because I was in like my own little world like most of us are when it's something we're not a fan of her Wheels. Like like I didn't watch football. So what I started seeing people talking about Colin Kaepernick kneeling like on social media and stuff in the news, I asked my boyfriend because I was like a dating he's a huge football fan. I would like to know what's going on. And so I got bad information as a lot of us do when we ask a person that we trust instead of just like looking it up for cells. He said that Colin Kaepernick was kneeling because he was disrespecting the flag of America and being naive and not really focusing on it..

"The WNBA is in talks of doing the same thing, but it doesn't feel right to talk about how Major League Baseball is ruining itself. There are so many more important things that we have to talk about and we have an incredible interview later in the show as well. But this episode is about racism peaceful protests problems that have been going on in this country since before this country was even founded it is uncomfortable stuff and it's difficult stuff and as two white women, we know that it's not really our place to talk about a lot of this stuff which is why we have a guest whose dog. Talk to us about it. But we also felt like it was important to talk about the ways that were educating ourselves and some things that we've learned over the last week. It's been really thought opening learning the things that we've learned this week and it's been really hard to watch a lot of the things that are happening in this country, but this country can't stay the way that it's been weaned off and every person in this country needs to feel safe and accepted and loved we can't if we talked about wanting Sports to be a safe place for everybody or Hypocrites. If we don't talk about the world's leading to be a safe space for everybody, right and things have been said about the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis or up in me of in Minneapolis Police Officer things have been said much more eloquently than the words we could even construct. I would like us to talk about some of the things that we've learned over the last week because I've log So much. I'm not going to make this about being Jewish. This isn't about anti-Semitism or Judaism. But somebody that I really admire wrote a nice thing on Instagram just talking as a Jewish person about all of this and said I'm writing this only a short distance from the reichstag building where Hitler first spoke of his plan for the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe in the following years the world watched a six million Jews were murdered in a barbaric effort to restore racial Purity across the continent in the last few days of reading and reflection. I learned how Hitler look to the Jim Crow laws in the United States and other legal codes based on white supremacy as inspiration for the first anti-jewish laws implemented in Germany to designate my people as subhuman. I am not trying to plug the Jewish plate into the current narrative for black lives. This isn't our struggle with one we must fight in because we too were once desperate for active allies and still depend on them today that really just stuck with me because it's true and at the end of day what time? Keep coming back to is that all human beings underneath the color of our skin eyes hair the way we look we all have blood and bones and hearts and brains and that's what.

"alston" Discussed on Historical Figures
"You listen to podcasts. Today will be looking into Theodosius. Burr Allston a socialite and daughter of Aaron Burr. The third vice president of the United States on New Year's Eve eighteen twelve. She boarded the transport ship the Patriot to travel from Charleston South Carolina to New York and was never seen again when Theodore show burr. I vanished in Eighteen. Thirteen for father. Aaron Burr and the rest of the world generally assumed that for some reason or another. She must've perished when the ship she was travelling on sank but in the decades after her disappearance a number of strange coincidences and mysterious. Figures would turn up that seemed to indicate there was more to the story. Did the dough show Burr. Allston die when ship sank due to a raging storm or was there a more sinister forces at work. Could it even be possible that she survived or journey in this episode? We'll discuss three theories as to what became of the Patriot and Theodosius our first theory. Is that the doe show. Oh was the female stranger a mysterious unidentified woman who died in Virginia under odd circumstances four years after the ADOC disappeared. Our second theory concerns the NAG's head portrait. Which has long been suspected of featuring Theodosius at subject? The portrait was found on a shipwreck in Nags. Head North Carolina and may suggest that the Patriot was overtaken by a storm. Finally the third most popular theory is that the Patriot was captured by. Pirates will explore numerous conflicting reports from supposed members of pirate crews and we'll waive the likelihood that Theodosius was forced to walk the plank. Theodosius whole existence was brought about through scandal when her mother also named Theodosius and her father. I began their courtship. It caused controversy across both sides of the Revolutionary War. Aaron and the elder Theodosius met and fell in love in the early seventeen eighties at that time. Feodosia then known as theodose area. Bardo provost was married to Jacques Marquez. Provost an officer in the British army. Errand and Theodosius shared a love of philosophy and debate and wrote frequent letters to one another in which they challenged each other intellectually a recurring topic of their debates was the morality of adultery which naturally was relevant to their situation. There's no evidence that the ever acted on their attraction until after theodosius first husband died in seventeen eighty one however only half a year after his death. Aaron Burr and Theodosius Bartow proposed were married on July sixth seventeen eighty two. Although they never had a physical affair their marriage was still a subject of gossip and disapproval. The dossier was ten years older than her already had. Numerous children was not wealthy and wasn't considered particularly attractive. In contrast Burr was rich educated and a war hero who seemed to have a prosperous career ahead of him the Patriarchal Society of the time couldn't fathom what a woman like. The ADOC had to offer Burger. But Bur was unlike most.
Emotional Turbulence and Resilience: Coping and Staying Sober During the Pandemic.
"It is Wednesday march sixteenth. And as most of you out there will know by the time. This podcast comes out on Monday. Which will be the goodness twenty-third that we are in the midst of a really big world crisis. I'm talking to you from the US. But the corona virus is now everywhere in the world and most of us are reckoning still. It's Wednesday for me Monday for you but still very much reckoning with the emotions of all of this. Last Friday I left my gym. It was Friday the thirteenth and people were still talking about how they were going to deal with the kids coming home from school our gym owner was talking about how he was going to put together a summer camp for these kids by Saturday. I have a dear friend by the way bless her soul she is moving tomorrow in the midst of this so hopefully she'll be safe and hunkered down in her new home by the time she listens to this so I went over to her house on Saturday and I had already decided that I needed to stay. Four to six feet away from her and her children and it was so hard and that was last. Saturday I'm talking to you today on Wednesday and by the way I'm probably getting emotional throughout this podcast because this morning I woke up and I was scared I was overwhelmed and I just had to put my biggest girl pants on and get things ready for this podcast so I went over to her house and we sat around chatting for probably only about an hour. Maybe an hour and a half with her and her two kids and it just struck me while. I was sitting there with the thought in mind that I was still trying to protect my clients. I am open on Sundays so I see a couple of clients in person on Sunday and only one was gonna stay home and we were going to do it via video and the other one still on Saturday I was GonNa meet them in person as I was sitting there trying to be upbeat while I was still feeling pretty upbeat and we were talking about. What the pandemic means for all of us. The kids were really engaged. And it dawned on me that this may be it for a while that this kind of engagement might be our new normal for a while unfortunately again. That was Saturday the fourteenth by later that afternoon after watching more news reports I had decided to switch all of my in person sessions with clients to online and I scheduled to additional calls with clients who just called in said. I needed to talk. Okay so then we get to Monday and Tuesday in our group text from the gym is like. Oh everybody's going. Why shouldn't you go one person's flying off to Michigan from Georgia to see their mother in law with their teenage child and I came to my knees on Tuesday. I'm trying to figure out with all of us online and the groups that we have on facebook for my profession counseling. What we're going to do. Many people don't have an online practices I do. We're sharing back and forth and people were thinking that they could work out the week. Seen people in person and I know many of them are still doing that Wednesday. Today as I record you know there was a lot of clear information but a side effect of the time that I spent in the northern Virginia area and DC area is that. I'm a news junkie and I listened. I listened to Dr Sanjay Gupta and Dr Anthony Fauci and many many others and then I listened to our president on Tuesday. Who's tone shifted nearly a hundred and eighty degrees? And I realized this is going to be big in our lifetimes in our children's lifetimes and who that was just yesterday so after talking with friends last night and you know doing what everybody else is doing watching on news and do my own research and then falling into bed as early as I could around midnight last night. I got up at four. Am this morning with Falana anxiety. I decided I was going to get in the shower. I was going to shave my fifty five year old woman who lives alone legs and put on a really good show for you in. Come and give you the best information I could about how to stay sober in how to stay mentally well and then I dropped to my knees and cried. I just bawled which I'm prone to do every now and then now that I'm sober. I used to do a lot more of it when I wasn't but I realized that I needed to come on. Be With you today to share my emotions to share. How scared I am. And yet how hopeful I am and to share with you as I always do at least a few tips and ways that not only I but other people are prioritizing getting through this really whack a doodle time I want to say that to the best of my ability I am working with every person who is calling into me and my established clients financially to keep support it during this time. This is going to be different than anything that we've ever done and I am seeing to you. If you need help reach out I am waving my rates. I'm reducing my rates. I'm letting people pay full price if they can. I am doing what I can to assist people with knocking too overwhelmed myself. So if you need help. Mental wellness support recovery support reach out. Lots of people are offering free programs. Do REACH OUT. Ask people go on facebook even if you haven't yet at all get out there and fill your buffer zone with stuff. Put more tools in your toolbox just so you have things to rely on. Because we don't know how long this is GonNa last. I've come up with an acronym. Give you right off the bat. Because of course the world needs especially at this time other acronym but here goes. I don't like him either but they're really useful. It's called calm. Sea STANDS FOR CLARITY. A stands for acceptance Alston's for learn and M stands for movement at this time. Everything is really Eerie Weird. Like nobody's moving in my apartment complex. There's this eerie silence around us. At least I feel a heaviness in the air so what I want and by the way. This is my damn word for two thousand twenty. I want clarity. I WanNa know what is expected of me. I WanNa be clear on what my goals are. Here what my needs are and I want to understand my most basic way. Forward clarity around information that you're getting stop with the junk. Goto SOURCES LIKE CORONA VIRUS DOT. Gov Seek Out. Cable stations in news outlets. That are really reputable. Turn to the channel that you don't normally listen to to get the flip side. I'm begging you to do this. And after you spend a limited time doing this very important to acknowledge that we must limit our intake of this information. But I want you to get some really good information for you in your family members so that you can make some decisions the next step after that is acceptance it will go a lot smoother if we you me. Remember that we're GONNA have to wake up daily and we're GONNA have to move through our days hourly accepting that this is what is happening right now. The many people even today who are out there not believing that this is going to affect them that they don't have a social responsibility to you and me that I don't have a social responsibility to you are going to get a really stiff uppercut to the jaw. If they haven't by the time this podcast comes out. It's not going to take on
