"Stock exchange by selling itself to a firm that's already trading their a kind of business known as a special purpose acquisition company or spec virgin galactic draftkings and the door are among the slew of companies that have gone public by merging with specs in the past year for more on this wall street trend. Let's turn to mike regan senior editor for bloomberg news. I mike hi column. So can you just tell us a bit more about what it is and how it can be used as an alternative to the more familiar. Initial public offering process right so specs are often called blank. Check companies and the reason is the basic idea is they are publicly. Traded companies that raise money from investors with the goal of then going out and finding private company to buy in control using that money. They raised and they've become really popular this year. In fact more than four hundred were announced in north america so far this year and cowan give you an idea of how many that is. That's more than the previous. Two full years combined already in two thousand and twenty one. So i was trying to understand why this been this uptick. I mentioned earlier that the sports betting service draft kings used special purpose acquisition company to go public last year. And so i asked the ceo. Jason robbins about that move and he told me merging with us back. That's already on a public. Stock exchange is attractive in this volatile pandemic period. I think if we'd been considering traditional ipo. it's possible. We would have decided that now isn't the right time. But you know the stock itself because it's back has been publicly trading the whole time so we can tell based on how the stock was trading. You know where the market with that was basically like having a continual measuring stick out there so mike if if we apply this measuring stick principle to we work that there's this back that's buying we work. It's called bo acquisition company. And even before the deal closes. Investors can think of bobic's doc as kind of a proxy for we work. And that's going to help. we work. Get a sense of what investors think about it. So is back a safer way to go public for a company like we had a pretty spectacular failure and its ipo attempt a couple of years ago when it comes to a company like we work. It's very very difficult to come back from failed. Ipo such as theirs and try to do it again. So i think there's an argument that this was probably the best possibly their only real viable option to go public. Think for other companies. This type of deal is appealing because take a company like draft kings. They might not have a lot of Experts in house who have experienced taking a company public and raising money in the capital markets. So this is sort of an appealing way to do that. States in order to bring executives. Who know how to do this. And bring in investment banks and hire them. There's obviously still investment banks involved but this is a much simplified process compared to the traditional route to going public. If you're the ceo of a company that gets purchased by us back. Sure good point. Jason robinson geo part of the founding team there so maybe not a traitor by trade and attractive option and he gets. We'll have to see whether this is a pandemic trend or whether it continues beyond this acute phase. That's mike regan senior editor for bloomberg news. Mike thank you thank you. Here is some music that seems to fit the.

"How dna replicates itself in somebody who's not like two gourmet and translating. Amanda gorman is extremely unarmed. the whole discussion that we're having about all of this is one that seems to quietly call on us to fashion. A sort of studied numbness to what are is in favor of acknowledging that we know that racism exists. But more than what you're saying here borrows actually wrote the scathing editorial and lp's saying that the criticism over who translates ignore some central tenets of translation like the literary quality of the work produced and that the goal is to become invisible as the translator and embrace all voices in effect dissolving themselves and being reborn into others. That is what you're saying is like aspiring to try to understand so you can translate but is that really possible. Well of course some people will be better at it than others but then notice that in this whole debate were being asked to pretend that the measure of being good at it is being able to channel the very particular experience of a black person experiencing racism at the hands of whites. That's one of about a thousand things that might happen to a black person that might constitute a black person so and in general you can ask whether a person can subsume themselves into another person soul in that way successfully but then on the other hand we can also say this person's soul is certainly not the slightest they may have experienced from white people or the fact that they sense that white people. Don't see them as completely whole. I mean also what i'm hearing from you i mean. Does this also kind of speak to this idea that there needs to be multiple translations of works. Is that part of the solution. We see that with other translations of works there have been multiple interpretations of a work to let various translators. Express their vision of it. You know that would be really interesting. Because then if you had say the old white guy of the translation and then the hip young black spoken-word woman does a translation. You could see the differences and not only. Would you just have interesting differences and translations like you have interestingly different translations of shakespeare but we could actually evaluate is it true that likeness of life experience when it comes to the issue of racism makes a translation. better neria. The translator that i mentioned earlier worries that this type of censorship could be lethal for for translation. Do you agree with that. I do agree with that because the truth is that in many countries for example there just aren't that many translators caller and you can say that. That isn't right you can save at. That isn't fair but that leaves it true and so it means that sometimes they're really might not be somebody who's appropriate according to these metrics that were coming up with or it might be and i know we're not supposed to say this but it might be that the person or two who are available are transparently not as qualified to wield the art of the translation of poetry as various other people who've been doing it for a living or as a lifetime avocation at frankly heard that that's the case in one country where i'm sure this exact same things about to happen going forward. I think that we need to realize that it's not wrong to seek translators. Who's had the same kinds of life experiences. It should be one of many metrics that come into play but the idea that you turn down somebody in late middle age who's translated all sorts of things including ones having to do with race and racism because they're not somebody who themselves as black and hasn't suffered racism in the sense that the poet has that's just too simplistic professor mike water. Thank you so much. Thank you tanya. That's linguist. John mc water on the controversy over translations of inaugural poet amanda gorman's poem the hill club the attack in a supermarket in boulder. Colorado monday was the third denver area shooting in the past two decades. In which ten or more people died and survivors say there's a cumulative effect of so many shootings colorado public radio nathaniel minor reports. It was an all too familiar sight. Some of the state's top officials gathered to remember victims of a mass shooting. This cannot be our new normal jona. Goose is the congressman from boulder. We should be able to feel safe in. Our grocery stores should be able to feel safe in our schools in our movie theaters and in our communities more than three dozen people were killed between the columbine high school massacre in one thousand nine hundred nine the vora theater shooting in two thousand twelve and the boulder king super shooting this week and the area has seen other shootings at schools and other public places to to died at platte canyon high school in two thousand six five in our vada in colorado springs in two thousand seven three at a thornton walmart in two thousand seventeen and those can all feel like mass shootings happen more often here in the denver post analysis of shooting since columbine says that's true. The denver metro had the third most mass shootings per capita what it does to the communities. Chatters comfortable you know things that used to be inside of comfort zone no longer. John nicoletti is a police psychologist based in lakewood colorado. He says people here need to adapt by doing things like thinking about where all the exits are when they enter a building. It's kind of like you know skiing years ago. None of us wore helmets now. Everybody wears helmets. Your debt you carry on survivors of past shootings have to live with their trauma. Heather martin was a senior at columbine high school in one thousand nine hundred nine. She says therapy and other survivors have helped her over the years. Although new shootings can feel like a setback. She's now a high school english teacher in suburban denver. I go to school. I feel unsafe for a couple of weeks. Like i have to like resettle in and refigure out because i've been like triggered. It's been like reignited if you will like that.

"It's a tough spot because there's only so many things he can pass. It has to be related to the budget to go through the reconciliation process. It may be hard to get this whole package through filibuster which came up during the news. Conference to louis. No you were in the room when there was an interesting exchange related to the filibuster. Cnn's kaitlan collins asked the president whether he thought that the filibuster is a relic of the jim crow era. Let's take a listen to that exchange. Why not abolish it. If it's a relic of the jim crow era successful electoral politics is the art of the possible. So interesting exchange there. Beth fouhy because the president is saying yes he does. Think the jim crow era relic applies to the filibuster. And yet. he's not ready to do away with it entirely. What did you make that well number. One president biden can't do away with the filibuster would have to be done in the senate But obviously his opinion on this and whether or not he's going to decide to press democratic leaders in the senate on this Is is is very key and what i heard him say. Yesterday is that no. He really is not inclined to do it. At the moment he sort of seemed to describe it or liken it to a almost a nuclear option at the beginning of a process rather than letting the process get itself out and then maybe coming to a different decision once we see where things go with respect to his legislative priorities. And whether or not the filibuster really does jam him up. So i didn't hear him rule it out entirely. He's he. He clearly knows that many of the things that he needs to do or base because of what he campaigned on will stall forever in the senate if filibusters preserved but he's going to let the process play itself out before he makes that big decision on whether or not to to say that he would like see. Go away to- lou. We heard a beth Earlier talking about the voting rights legislation but can democrats get voting rights. Legislation passed in congress without getting rid of the filibuster. I mean last night. We saw the republican governor of georgia. Brian kemp signed into law. This sweeping rewrite election rules there that would limit voting access and democrats in congress are trying to pass a law to counter those kinds of republican changes at the state level. Is there legislation gonna go anywhere in the senate. There does not seem to be kind of bipartisan support. That you would need to overcome the filibuster For voting rights legislation. So it does seem like there two choices for for democrats that biden administration tried to use what they call is reform would cost him to get rid of the filibuster for this kind of democracy supporting legislation in their view and moving forward with only fifty votes or. I'm not doing anything. Essentially you realizing that. There aren't the votes necessary to get the kind of voting rights legislation that a lot of democrats want it does appear that they have to make that choice so far it seems like the the the choice that seems to be. The one that is winning out is not doing anything and know. It seems like i have not tried to quit. All of his political capital behind the idea of getting rid of filibuster in order to pass voting rights legislation You know people. Like manchin. The senator from west or from west virginia. A democrat said that he believes that any voting rights legislation needs to be bipartisan. So even if they get rid of the filibuster is not clear that all fifty democrats are on board with the idea of passing the voting rights legislation as it stands right now in congress so this could be a very tough political fight for it if i didn't ministration and it's part of the reason why they are talking about the art of the possible and focusing on things like infrastructure and focusing on things like the budget reconciliation package the three trillion dollar bill. Back better plan that they believe they can actually get done while not spending as much political capital on the things that may not get done. It would be political defeats for them so it does appear that the filibuster is standing in the way of voting rights legislation and. It doesn't appear that there's the political will from either biden administration or even within the democratic caucus in the senate to get rid of filibuster for this legislation. And we'll have to wait and see to see what happens if the republicans decide to vote down this legislation whether democrats move onto a plane or get closer to getting rid of the filibuster whether they just decide to move on and focus on what biden calls the art of the possible. That's all that political investigator reporter for the washington. Post thanks to you. Thank you also with this. Was beth fully. Nbc senior politics editor. Thanks beth thank you Millions of americans heard. Amanda gorman recite her moving on the hill. Climb at president biden's inauguration on january twentieth one day. Comes we ask ourselves. Where can we find light in this. Never ending shade the loss. We carry a c. We must wade. We've braved the belly of the beast. We've learned that quiet isn't always piece in her. Poignant delivery and passionate words also captivated audiences abroad leaving international publishers clamoring to get her into print which in turn meant choosing international translators by one count. The point has now been translated into seventeen languages all of the translators approved by gorman herself so it came as a surprise when one translator a white non binary person in the netherlands quit after criticism that they did not share gorman skin color or life experiences a second translator a white man translating and catalan also was. Let go for the same reasons. The controversy has created factions in the translation world and. Let's bring in linguist. John mc water. He's a professor of english and comparative literature at columbia university to talk more about this issue. Professor welcome thank. You told you. Let's go back to the beginning of this controversy. It began win a black dutch style. Writer for an online site argued that it was incomprehensible. That a translator who was not a spoken word artist. A young female and unapologetically black was chosen to translate her point. What are your thoughts here. Well i think that crucially the main tree in that description. The one that all of this hinges on is the color of amanda gorman skin and this complainant's idea is that it's incontrovertible that there's no controversy over the idea that the defining trait of amanda gorman is that she's black and may have had experiences of racism in her encounters with white people and she certainly is black and she certainly may have had those encounters but the idea that that part of her should determine who gets to translate her. Poetry is very interesting. Because we don't have that conversation when thinking about all the other facets of people and how they may not match up between say the poet and their translator. There's a sense that when it comes to black people's relationship with white people then all bets are off and suddenly. We can't imagine that person's artistic statement being rendered in another language appropriately by someone who isn't of her collar and hasn't had those particular kinds of experiences i find that a dehumanisation of her at dehumanisation of gorman. I do because. I know that these days were being taught that it's a kind of higher wisdom that the essence of american society is white people's mistreatment of black people and therefore the essence of being a black person. So myself is your mistreatment at the hands of whites and how you mentally grapple with it that is a proposition. And it's one that i find extremely reductive of the entire human beings that we are and i think too many of us. Black people are encouraged to have this reductive sense of ourselves and by the way. Amanda gorman is not one of them. she's not the one who called for the dutch translator to pull out right. She actually approved this dutch translator. But let's take a step backward and talk a little bit about what translators are actually trying to do. Because it's not like transcribing a trial. There's so much that relies on interpretation as as nuria borrow who translated the point. Spanish says it's about imagination and conveying concepts. Not so much being stuck in the confines of individual words. What do you think about that well. I think it's very important because what borrow saying is that we're talking about art much more than some sort of mechanical transliteration of exactly what the other person said and one thing that we can imagine an artist might be good at is putting themselves into the heads of other people and so the whole idea that there's going to be some sort of mis transcription as if we were talking about..

This is such an awesome magazine. And the whole reason why i discovered kazoo. I saw a really amazing posts on linked in actually that someone had made commentary about girls and girl magazines like and so i made a post on facebook and then a friend of mine said hey you know what. There's a really great girls magazine that addresses these issues that you're bringing up. It's called kazoo. So i went and found it online and i discovered that it is a hard copy magazine. You order this thing you subscribe to it. It is mailed to you and you hold it in your and and there's a good reason for that so i am not a young girl nor do i have a young girl in my household but i was really interested in this magazine and what it was all about and i wanted to support them. It just so happens that yesterday The date were recording. This happened to get the latest issue and so far. I think this is the third one i've gotten and i have a teenage son. That even likes it. It has super interesting articles. That are creatively done. They highlight women. So it's all women review board and the authors and there's a lot of scientific stuff. There's a lot of creative stuff. Their stories there are questions. There are things that make you. Think there are tongue twisters and short stories science stuff. The list goes on very well. Done gray graphics. I love this magazine because it short short cool. So you're telling me this is a physical to like you have the physical. They don't got that those exists. I know which is silly. But i actually kinda true. Yeah it's feels rare nowadays it does. It's cool it is it is and it. Has you know it's kind of like back in the day when we were growing up there. Were kids magazines where you drew in. They had a big spots where you could like draw something and has that oh cool yeah factor as well for sure because kids don't really see that anymore and magazines that's kind of rare now and so here's an example like a had a recipe for making cookies and then it gives the history fortune cookies and then the mystery of it and this and that you know so it just really brings in this kind of holistic approach to each of the things they talk about and just really fun very very well done call. Do you think you'll get some cool sheets feature co sheets from that to mine. Everybody source bad about that kind of stuff. Yeah well very cool. Thank you for sharing that. And do you want to hear one of my dreams. Now i do. I wanna be. I wanna like contribute to it. Oh yeah that would be so. Yeah you'd be great. yeah after. I'll keep getting these magazines and these issues and kind of you know. See what where i could fill in the need. Yeah very cool. Yeah that's neat all right. Well thanks again. My first school sheet is a human. This is one of the most amazing humans. I've been able to witness a long time and it's amanda gorman. She was at the inauguration for joe biden presidency and she kind of stole the show. Not kinda she did. She just twenty two years old and she is the youngest inaugural poet in us history. She's award winning writer. She graduated kamada at harvard. Super super smart and her poem was absolutely amazing. It was called the hill. Climb some of my favorite quotes. We braved the belly of the beast. We've learned that quiet isn't always piece so she does really cool like play on words like a lot of good poets due to her delivery her confidence. She's just a tiny little thing but she owned every second of spoken word and she. Her presence is larger than life. She wore this amazing like bright. Yellow jacket and a red headband. And she's just she's a force and i've listened to a couple more poems that she has online. She has a temp performance. Of course she has another one on global warming called earth rice also very all. They're all very good. She is going to be an up and comer and some really cool things that i learned about her is she actually has a speech impediment so to be a world class poet like this but still she and if you notice she still struggles with ours. I'm saying them and it was a thing that she had couldn't hear when she was born very well in a distorted the way she picked up language but she's totally overcome but i love that she still embraces. That and has not let it supper. That's an inspiration. She's an inspiration for so many other things he plans to be. Run for president in twenty thirty six so definitely keep an eye out for. Amanda gorman She yes yes yes yes that's all. Well that's not all. I have to say but it's so funny because you had asked me you said are you going to be talking about any humans and i immediately was like he's gonna talk about amanda. I do really do it. Oh yeah that's because like this is definitely one. Were probably gonna duplicate and as actually ready. I have twenty more minutes of notes so as like well. If you talk about it. I could talk about other things. Boughedir research her so thoroughly even for the show because she's amazing person and i want to learn and more about her. There are some other amazing things in her poem. During inauguration we lay down our arms so can reach out our arms Just so many things. There were so relevant to the day into the state of the nation right now so uplifting and uniting and she's just an amazing amazing person i'm so glad she was selected. I'm so yeah she's she's an amazing human. Ooh last time. We'll we'll hear about her absolutely absolutely and i could. I could relate. So guess what i had a speech impediment. I could not say ours. Oh okay there you go. yeah so when. I heard that i was like way. Yeah and you can see her. I i've listened to that inauguration poem now three or four times maybe more and i don't notice it as much. So maybe she really she she talked. She's very open about it and talking about and how she's used. She had some really interesting. She listened to the soundtrack of hamilton. A lot to help her with this speech. Show interesting to overcome which i thought was also cool techniques again and just very perfect for her but if you listen to some of our older poems you maybe it's more relevant than or whatever but i think it's i don't know if i'm just because i'm so enamored with her presence that i think everything she does now is golden so even when she has it in her eyes defend. I'm like it's it's wonderful because now she's embraced it. It's she doesn't hide from it. And i love it because you know joe biden. He stuttered for a really long time and he still to this day. A lot of people say. Oh you know seems like you so out of sorts. A lot of time. Because he's overcome his speech impediment and people don't quite realize that i mean obviously he's older too and not to pick a political side. But you know that's a thing with him and so the fact that he picked another person that also had a speech impediment like everything about it. I know i love it. It's perfect and she. She's she's amazing. Anyway i now. she's amazing. I am excited to see what her future holds. Three books coming out. Oh yeah like. And this is again before the inauguration obviously but that kinda catapulted her every now she's on everybody's radar but i was so happy to. I already called a local bookstore and reserve copy of one of her book. Oh excellent so yeah so super bumped about awesome all right well speaking of bucks. My next goal sheet is a buck slash audiobook. I'm actually listening to the audio..

"Thank you so much. For having 'em super excited i'm the one who should be excited because i mean twenty twenty one kicked off with a bang. It's been a whirlwind for everybody. But i think for you more than most people. It has been extra will windy which is a trademark. You can use one day if you'd like to add one of your poems You you went from not just being notable because you read a poem the youngest ever inaugural poets but also because of what the pomento people because of the inspiration behind because of how people felt after they heard what you did. What has it been like for you just just in this little period since the inauguration what is your world been like my world has been crazy. I mean it's been turned upside down. I mean when. I was writing the poem. I knew it was a historic moment. I knew was an important moment. Which is why i wanted to do. just service. but it wasn't really paying attention to the ways in which my own personal life might change a what a democracy poem. I walked off and just kind of expected everything to be the same. Then i remember. China opened my instagram. Just to look at other people's posts in all of my apps have just crashed because of all the followers that were just. You know flocking to my channel. So it's been amazing. I'm still kind of absorbing and all like sponge. The poem the hill we climb wasn't just momentous because of the day it was performed on i think what made it special. Was that you incorporated up until that day. The things that so many people were feeling about america. If you don't mind walk me through why you felt it was important to write a poem for that moment and then even still be writing the poem on the actual day that you delivering. Its right exactly wolf for me. I mean i was writing it and trying to find a way to encapsulate had gone on over the past four years and even looking more expansively than that and then we had the insurrection at the capital so for me it was trying to say we've had this reminder of the ways alleged democracy is both fragile and also ensuring in howard seared is to defend and i think a lot of times and cultures we think of the ways in which we can cleanse yourself with water. I think the ways that we can cleanse yourselves with words meaning that was an opportunity to kind of re sanctify re purify and reclaim not just the capitol building but american democracy but it stands for put a high ass of myself. But you know. That's what i d. I showed up rolled up my sleeves. And that was the aim of the palm to use words to try to go back to the quintessence of what america can be. I think you achieved the thousand times over and it showed in. How people responded considerate from this perspective. And you may not. But this is how i saw it. I went on a day. When joe biden's inaugurated common harris is stepping into the role as vp lady gaga performing jennifer lopez's. Performing you with a thing that people were look at you will. You were the trending thing i mean. It's like you competing with like bernie. Sanders was basically. That must be. Do take a moment to like man. This is surreal. That is so surreal. Especially because my friends are so funny and you know they come for blood so they were texting me like well. Zo binding did a good job opening up for. Amanda gorman on that not gracing not competitions. It's not a fighter from warns the inauguration. They're like you did in so i starting me. It was so daunting to be on a stage. You know there's michelle obama to my ride. Barack obama hillary clinton and what happened so the figures that have been mythologised for me in sioux. Find myself not only being in that space but owning it in claiming it Was i think the highlight of my career. I believe that you are slated to perform at the super bowl lettuce correct. Yes i to send you understand the juxtaposition of this right now. Write poetry at the super bowl. You understand the levels. You've made it to where they were like. This person is so good that we have to bring her to do poetry at the super bowl right literally. That went over my head. Because i knew about the super bowl in the inauguration around the same time and it was like there was not space in my head for both like i kept being like. I got right inauguration column and my team was like there was this little thing called the super bowl. You should also keep in mind in so you know. It's very rare and i wanted to say you know if not you know an extant possibility that a poet will be at something like the super bowl. There's nothing i have really heard about before. And so moments strive for in my lifetime which is to bring poetry into the space that we least expect it so that we can fully kind of grapple the ways in which it can heal and resurrect us. Let's talk a little bit about poetry. I mean it feels like poetry like some forms has it has its highs and then it has moments where disappears. Why do you think we should never forget poetry. What is it about poetry that you feel society needs to hold onto what i always say is poetry stands as a great reminder of the past that we stand on in the future that we stand for. I do not think it is any coincidence. That america's america's seats to kind of consecrate. Its ideals it does so through poetry. I don't think that we see a palm at the base of the statue. Liberty as opposed to like a scientific formula or even prosaic paragraph you know why is it that we call forth poetry in those moments or even point out to students when you're out of black lives matter march and you see you know banners that say they buried us. They didn't know recedes. That's poetry at the justice movement and so poetry because it's inherently rebellious in its nature. I think really becomes the language in the rhetoric of the people we get to kind of co and play on play on it and let's more we get to use those words to realize thoughts in transform those thoughts into actions. You have a journey ahead of you. That i think nobody can predict Which is exciting. And you've had a journey that has been unpredictable. You know you. you've you've talked about it. You know growing up in a family with a single mom was raising yourself on your twin sister and your brothers well and and how to achieve my question to you then is what are you aspiring to seeing that you've basically done at all. I mean in the past few weeks they. That's a great question. i mean. I'm really taking that time to kind of sit back and think can be like well. Wow that was it kind of what's next and for me. I don't think about of beating my last thing or even competing against myself. I hear that a lot. Let's find other people. I'm not necessarily fighting against myself competing or contesting against anything. I've done but i want to keep the trajectory that i started for myself. I never went to kind of dally or diverged from not in for me that just means using my poetry to touch in. He'll impact as many people as possible. And that can be at the inauguration. The super bowl. It can be in a living room. It's often in classrooms and other students and so that's what's next for me on the more like resume tick thing that i always have to mention what i'm on talk shows and like i have three books out so there was also that would i need to write. But you know i'm just shug and forward. I know everyone's going to be reading the books. Thank you so much around the.

I just wanna make an observation here. I feel like we didn't have breakout. Celebrities like this under trump. But can you think of any. We didn't have breakout celebrities like this but we certainly have. We certainly had some breakout celebrities. One guy mike lindell of my pillow. Dan bongino facebook and whatever else he does. There were there were there. Were some i don. They weren't of the. How shall we say caliber magic orbit. But i think that there there. There definitely were New celebs as it were that we had to contend with. Perhaps i think that's right. I think that there's like you know people who popped up for a variety of different reasons but not necessarily because we were all like yes. This is good and they are like the situations even when there were good people. I feel like the situations around them. We're not necessarily the best so it's just yeah all right. I guess. I'll take dan bongino as an answer guy who i. I'm assuming he has a podcast because he's angry white man. I feel like that. I can top hobbies for that type correct correct. Yeah i think he does and to me. The real gauge of amanda success is going to be when she beats his facebook post like when she starts when we look at those weekly facebook posts. And it's not all dan one through ten then. We'll know that she's i'm aged terribly. It is now much much older cares baseball.

"To the daily social distancing show. Let's talk about america's new president. Joseph ruffy key biden. There's no doubt but he's got a tough job ahead of him. But in his inauguration speech last week quite made clear what his top priority is over companies challenges to restore the sole insecure. The future america requires so much more than words requires the most elusive all things in a democracy unity unity unity nudity unity unity unity unity. Unity unity unity. But look i get it. America has been divided over the last four years. technically twelve. If you include obama's actually it was pretty divided under bush and clinton who've yeah. That was bad. Oh you'll said the sixties and the civil war civil war. Oh man you know what also wasn't great whole thing with the pilgrims and the indians all right so america's been divided for like two thousand years now. The point is unity. So i can see why unity would be very appealing for people right now but for unity to work you have to agree on what unity is and in washington right now then. Not even united on that. Us senator john cornyn from texas. His response to the inclusion of transgender people in the military was to tweet another unifying move by the new administration question. Mark democrats claim to want to unify the but impeaching a former president. A private citizen is the antithesis of unity. Joe biden you talk about unified the country pursuing impeachment. After he leaves the office will further divide their country. It's hard to unify. when you're impeaching. President has already left office. Joe biden vowed that his top priority was quote unity. Does anyone at this point. Still believe anybody. Raise your hand at home. Raise your hand at home dude. Only one of your viewers is dumb enough to think that you can see him through the tv because this is ridiculous. Apparently republicans think that unity means the democrats have to act like republicans. That's what what unity is. Unity does not mean agreements. It doesn't mean doing whatever. The other side wants unity. Means the state of being united and united means unified and unified means to be in for the same thing and thing. Same thing means. I'll tell you this much. Unity doesn't mean you just do what the news is. Want all right. It definitely doesn't mean that you can't hold trump accountable for what he did. That wouldn't fly in court. You are accused of manslaughter. How do you plead. I plead unity. Your honor get your to jail. And it's one thing to try to find unity with people who disagree with you on policies but how do you find unity with people who don't even recognize your legitimacy. A clear majority of house republicans. Who are now a kind of bring about unity voted to overturn the election and ineffective make trump president for four more years over the will of the voters. This election was not stolen. You accept that fact. Well what i would say. Is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur. We never had any presentation in court where we actually looked to the evidence republican congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green akunin supporters. She has repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent democratic politicians two thousand and nineteen. She liked to comment. That said quote a bullet to the head would be quicker to remove house speaker. Nancy pelosi in two thousand eighteen. She said quote. The stage is being set after asked whether they could hang president. Obama and hillary clinton holy. Shit this marjorie taylor. Green lady wanted to shoot pinault pelosi and hang obama and hillary. This woman is something else. It's like a noble. Karen fell into a vat of chemicals and then became a batman villain. I mean how can you achieve unity with someone who's literally wanting you dead. There's a reason. Why planet earth never ends with a bill being signed and suddenly the cheetah lozenges at young gazelle eager to reach a bipartisan agreement. Seriously people forget the country minutes right. That's their coworker. Imagine going into work every day knowing one of your coworkers wants to kill you. A coworker stole my yoga. One time and i still hold it against him. I was hungry for twenty minutes that day. Kevin you're a monster look considering where the republican party is right now. I don't know if the two sides can really come together but it would be fun watching them. Try to talk the issues out today. We're here to work on unity. Now this is a safe space to share your feelings and hopefully find some common ground democrats. Let's start with you. What does mean to you. We want unity together and respecting each other. I'm wrong republicans. You had a very strong reaction to that. What does unity to you is bringing everyone in the country together to do exactly what we want all the time and if you have a problem with that will storm your office. That's what unity is very good. Sharing love how honest your bane democrats is that something you think you might be open to know. He just said he wants to storm my office or put you in prison Options very good. Very good i feel. We should have a bigger say we won the election. You stole the election now. remember compromise. Okay so how about. Democrats won the election by stealing it. Yeah that's fair. it's not look. We just want the republicans to come to the table in good faith and find areas. We can agree on we can pass meaningful laws. Okay let's explore this republicans when democrats just said that. What is it that you hear. I heard that they want mandatory sharia socialism into put rupaul. The fifty dollar bill. That's what she said. That's not what i said at all. I up into rupaul. Thank god jazz the money but if they really wanted unity have explained the capital rights of that could have been a real bullet for unity. But there wasn't a single democrat in that mob. Because they're all talk with no insurrection. See this is. What does it's always mindful voyeurism fold every single time..

The inauguration inspires more art

"Sure. But artists also played a big role as you might have heard. Earlier in the show. We got to see Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez perform. There was an art installation at the National Mall. But outside of Washington, one particular piece of art really struck us. Hoarsely. Allah Barriers is a poet from Chicago. He often writes about his identity as a Mexican American from a mixed status family, And this week he was commissioned to write a new poem. It's called the People's Inauguration. It's your part of it. So let our imagination be as expensive as our love These In the beginning, there were no police until someone imagined them. So let's imagine the end of policing. Imagine medicine for the sick. Imagine bread for the hungry and don't stop imagining and struggling until we have a country worthy of inauguration. Jose Olivera is reading some of his poems, the people's inauguration. Put the olive areas as poem was commissioned by a U. S non profit called the Center for Cultural Power. And for more Jose's on with me on the line on Zoom from Jersey. Hi, Jose. How are you? I'm good. How are you, Tom? Powerful poem. Thank you. How are you doing? It's been ages since we talked. How you holding up? I'm holding up, Okay. All things considered, you know, the most important thing is everyone's been able to stay safe. So I feel really lucky and grateful for that. Well, we're lucky and grateful to have yet In the end that poem, which is which is beautiful in we're gonna get some poetry from your later You refer to a country worthy of inauguration. When you were watching the inauguration. Were you in any way confident that this new president might be able to steer the ship in that direction? I'm hopeful that at the very least we won't Live under the constant kind of terror and anxiety of the last administration, where we just, you know, would wake up to news that there was you know the Muslim bin and then the next day, there was another catastrophe. And so it feels like At the very least, it won't be four years of one catastrophe after the next I feel a little bit less a little more hesitant, saying anything more than that, because I think there's this idea that a return to normalcy is good enough. But normalcy was not good enough. Normalcy still meant that a lot of people were living. We're still suffering. So for me, we have to do better than just getting back to the way it was before Donald Trump one of the most beautiful moments of the inauguration, Certainly one of the most standout moments was from the poet Amanda Gorman. 22 years old youth poet laureate. I can see you getting excited as I talk about this. She brought the house down housing significant Was it for you to see poetry used like this. It was so powerful and so great. You know, Amanda is like you said, 22 years old to see a young person. Given that opportunity to shine, I think just goes to show You know how many talented poets there are in that young people when given the opportunity can really rise to the moment. So I was really happy to see a man that just absolutely crushed it on that stage and as a poet yourself, it must have been so exciting that all these songs did very well. But it was a poem, a poem that reached so many people that made such an impact. Absolutely, And the poem was so musical. I mean, you could hear the rhyme scheme and the different rhythms that Amanda incorporated. My favorite moment is she has a line that said, You know something along the lines of harm for none and harmony for all that little flip is just so beautiful and I think worthy of what of what we want and what we're trying to build. Well, I'm excited to listen to some poetry from you as well. You're going to read from his later on,

Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem

"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

"You're listening to ted talks daily. I'm elise hugh. If you watch the inauguration of the american president joe biden you amanda gorman. She is the youngest inaugural poet in us history and the country's first ever national youth poet laureate in her. Talk from ted weakened in two thousand eighteen. She calls poetry the language of people language of bridges. You'll hear how. I have two questions for you. One who shoulders do you stand on and to what do you stand for. These two questions always begin. My poetry workshops with students because at times poetry can seem like this dead art form for like old white men who just seem like they were born to be old benjamin van or something and i asked my students these two questions and then i share how i answer them which is in these three sentences that go. I am the daughter of black. Riders would descended from freedom fighters who vote the chains and change the world. They call me and these words. I repeat a mantra before every single poetry performance. In fact i was doing it in the corner over there also making faces so i repeat them to myself as a way to gather myself. Because i'm not sure if you know. Public speaking is pretty terrifying along onstage. And i have my heels. I look all glam. But i'm horrified and the way in which i kind of strengthened myself is bhai having this mantra most of my life i was particularly terrified of speaking up because i had a speech impediment which made it difficult to pronounce on letters. Sounds and i felt like i was fine biting on the page. Once i got on stage i was worried. My words my jumble stumble. What was the point in china to mumble these thoughts in my head if everything's already been said before but finally i had a moment of realization. Why thought if i choose not to speak out of fear than those no one that my silence is standing for and so i came to realize that i cannot stand standing to the side standing silent. I must find the strength to speak up and one of the ways i do. That is through this mantra where call back to what i call on a ancestors. These are people who might not be related to you by blood or by birth but who are more worth saying the names because you stand on the shoulders all the same. And it's only from the height of these soldiers that we might have sights to see the mighty power poetry. The power of language made accessible sibal. Poetry is interesting because not every one is going to become a great poet. But anyone can be anyone can enjoy poetry and it's this openness this accessibility of poetry..
