"Her enemies with her youth and returned hundreds of allied soldiers to their homes. She moved stealthily throughout europe to deliver people to safety. She repeatedly put her life in danger for the opportunity to give others a chance at freedom. Let's talk about entree diong. Andre young was born on november thirtieth nineteen sixteen in scar back belgium during the german occupation of world war one. She was the daughter of alice. And frederick diong an elementary school principal during andres childhood years. Frederick shared stories of red cross. Matron in heroin. Edith cavell in november of nineteen fourteen after the germans had seized brussels edith sheltered and helped two hundred. British soldiers escaped to the netherlands. Stories like edith's inspired andrei and would later guide. Her in her work after graduating from college. Andrei took a job as a commercial artist. Not long after world. War two began and the germans invaded belgium motivated. By the heroism of edith cavell. Andre quit her job and employed her first aid training in may of nineteen forty. She volunteered as a nurse with the belgian red cross inbetween tending to wounded. british soldiers. Andrei paid close attention to the movements of the germans. Nursing did not fulfil her in the way that she wanted. She wanted to play a more active role in the war. So andrei shifted her focus to the allied soldiers. Being shot out of the sky by german bomber jets. She was determined to help them. Get back home andrea badgered friends and family to open their homes to the soldiers and donate money and food while she worked to get forged identity papers in addition to finding safe houses for the soldiers andrei consulted with confidence to suss out escape routes in august of nineteen forty one. Andre completed her first escape expedition with two belgians and one scottish soldier. They travelled on a smuggler's route through the mountains. Between spain and france. When they arrived at the british consulate in bilbao the officials were incredulous that this petite twenty four year old woman completed such a mission following that success andrei smuggled to more scottish soldier to san sebastian. Shortly after that she delivered ten belgian civilians an englishwoman to safety the british console to spain recognized the effect that returning lost soldiers would have on morale and agreed to provide financial and logistical backing. For what became known as the comet escape line andrea used youthful appearance to her advantage. She was extremely unsuspicious and was able to blend in easily. She could inconspicuously walk down the monitored streets belgium with a couple of disguised. Allied men just a few steps behind her. Though andre's appearance was clearly an advantage. It was not necessarily understood as such by the people she sought to help when one soldier realized his feet was gonna lie and andres hands he proclaimed. Our lives are going to depend on a schoolgirl. Andres work required intelligence and determination. She also brought warmth and compassion to those she was helping. She introduced herself using one of her to codenames today. Which means little mother or the postman a name given to her by british intelligence officers for obvious reasons. One of andre's great skills was her ability to be invisible. Being a woman at that time had its advantages when it came to passing on notice but andrei also taught her charges to be invisible to her tips included always walking at least fifteen feet behind her and never speaking to anyone while out in public during train rides. She gave her travelers oranges to peel messily to ward off. Neighbors andrei had a real knack for avoiding any scrutiny or attention andrea could not do the work she did without help. She had volunteers and organizers to recover the men provide medical support and clothe shelter and feed them. Providing aid was just as dangerous as traveling along one thousand mile long comment escape line. Andrei sister was arrested. Sent to a concentration camp and her father was caught and shot by german. Firing squad everyone who signed up for this expedition. New the odds to temper expectations. Andre told all recruits should expect to either be dead or captured within six months in total andrea successfully completed about thirty trips to spain. She assured a hundred eighteen people out of occupied belgium over the pier. Knees to gibraltar and hundreds more also escaped along the comment line in nineteen forty three. The germans captured andre in a farmhouse at the base of the pyrenees when she confessed to the role she played in helping escape. The germans laughed in her face and said don't be ridiculous. The interrogated her twenty times before sending her to ravensbruck concentration camp. It was once again her youth that saved her when they gestapo came back to question her. They were unable to identify her. Among the masses of malnourished women andrei remained in the camp until its liberation in april of nineteen forty five after the war andrei resumed her nursing studies and spent twenty eight years working in leper colonies in the belgian congo. Cameroon ethiopia and senegal. She received the united states medal of freedom with golden palms and the british george medal in nineteen eighty five. Andre was named countess by the king of the belgians. She returned to belgium on her health. Took a turn for the worse and died on october thirteenth.

"What's up, Andre? Great man. I love this show. Thank you, friend. I appreciate you. What do you have this evening? A the N c. A a tournament man. I'm loving every minute of it, but we gotta keep some of the big balls around to Congress. We can't just go around all you send the rebel Well, that's true, because even though your team is a number two seed there at the University of Houston, there are some people who look at them in a Cinderella type vain because Houston really only the past couple years. I know you can go back to the Ralph Sampson years and all that stuff, but I think for a lot of people, it's Wow. Houston's one of those programs that is that is on the come. But man, it is set up for them to make a run here to maybe the final Four were the way I'm looking on. On the south meet with I think that's gonna be all kicked its final four. Houston vs Baylor. On the other side. I got Gonzaga and I got Florida State. I think this is gonna be the year of the first time champion. So At the end of the day. I'm going to Florida State winning they got they got the link. They loan they play hard. Thankful onstage gonna be. The team was all said and done. Come out with championship. Andre. I could see Florida State making a big run. I am I'm with you. They've got length. They can shoot the basketball. You know the other thing. About four to stay two is When you get to a certain level in this tournament. Do think coaching matters. I do overall, think the teams that are the most talented and it's not just you know the top for most talented teams of the four that always make it through their normally anywhere from you know 15 to 20 teams that Normally start an NC double a tournament that airworthy and have the talent in the ability to be able to make it all the way to the final four. If not the national championship game on I do think that Houston is one of those teams. But when you look at the, uh you know, you look at the upper part of the East region right now. Michigan made their way through, even though I think they're wounded. They're playing in l s u team That's got a ton of talent and then that Colorado Florida State game Colorado ran circles around Georgetown. They're going to be feeling great about their performance, but they're gonna be going against the team that is very much battle tested in Florida State. In theory, that should be a lot of fun and a hell of a match up. But you know Leonard Hamilton, that guy can coach now and I know he just got a contract extension that's going to keep him around for a couple of years. He's done a great job at Florida State. That is very much a guy who can coach a team to a national championship. Because I gotta be honest with you. There are certain teams in this tournament. It's the deeper they get. The bigger the mismatch there is on the coaching end. And, you know, I don't want to make it sound like that. I don't have respect for guys like you know, Porter Moser and people like that. Who are you know, Coach and loyal, a Chicago or, you know a Rick Pitino and in Iona. I mean that somebody who was clearly overqualified for a job like that. But you know if I only ever gets it together, and they go on one of these resilient make a 13 seed, maybe the four seed in the next thing you know, then Pitino or or someone of that ilk would have the impact and the ability to impact the game by controlling the pace and going up tempo and things that nature. And stuff that those guys really would understand and have used before, and, incidentally, tournament setting like this. I could totally see Florida State making a bit of a run. All right, I want to turn TOC, CBS Sports Radio's David Shepherd, one of our MBA writers. Chef not only produces this show, but hey, is also a n ba scribe at CBS Sports radio dot com. So chef one by the time it's over, And, uh and we're talking Friday morning, and there is, you know, trade deadline. Recap. Do you think everybody is gonna be really disappointed the day after the n betrayed deadline? Do you think we're going to see a bunch of movement or not? No, and I think the big fish this whole time Grecian we were kind of talking about it and break but it's really still Bradley Beal. I don't know if you would agree with that or not, but the guy whose name that's floating around who is the most prominent Is Bradley Beal. Bobby James Harden was part of that equation early on. That was nipped in the bud pretty pretty soon, and we saw how that played out when it came to the MBA season in favor of the Nets, and then, in the complete contrast with the Houston Rockets, Do you think Bradley Beal really, truly is available? Or is it? You know, because last year, I know that Washington flirted with Davis Bert hands and putting him out there. And I remember that in part because the Celtics were interested in him made an offer, and then it was no, we're not going to do anything with him, and they re signed him. And you know, it feels like Washington sometimes is half pregnant like They? They're interested in trading Bradley Beal, But then they never get an offer that they really like. So they sit on him and never end up flipping him. Well, I mean, Gresh. I mean, you tell me is Russell Westbrook. A guy who's going to bring you to the next level. Absolutely. No. Okay. What about how she Mora? Mm hmm. You give a point? No, I do. And look, I'm not anti Brett. Look, I'm not anti Bradley. Beal it all. I think Bradley Beal to the right team could make all the difference. In fact, he could be a guy who could, you know help till the Eastern Conference one way or another, because somebody has got to rise up to be the challenger to Brooklyn. And I don't know if Boston would have the ability to pry away Bradley Beal. Uh, I don't know if there be a match there and Philadelphia per se in terms of, you know, matching up salary and something that that Washington would want. But, Shep, I I feel well, you're putting like it's some point. Washington is gonna have to move on from the player. Uh, because at some point, they're gonna have to get something for it. It's like it's not gonna work out with him there long term, right? And so the thing is, you have never had a better opportunity. Who trade Bradley Beal because he is clearly playing the best basketball off his career. There's no question about that. The thing that surprises me grass the most about this whole season. And that is obviously attached to the trade deadline is what is taking place with Andre Drummond Gresh. This is the best rebounder of his generation. Now you alluded to it many have before you can't have him out there. With 34 minutes left in the game because of his horrible Poor free throw shooting. Terrible, terrible, but but I'll tell you this much. You know what he's not the first guy in the history of the game to be out there with 34 minutes left and be a terrible free throw shooter. It's been done before. The blueprint we know is to be seen not to be made up in that regard. Fresh. He is the best in the game of what he does. He can significantly impact both sides of the court, not just as a defense of rebounder, but he's the greatest offensive rebounder of his generation as well. The guy could give you 16 17 18 a game. He has improved on his ability to step outside. Shoot that 15 ft jumper Ben Simmons. I hope you're paying attention. The reality is the fact that no team has found a way to make that work..

"More confidence on do you know, I think he just needs to clean up the inconsistencies and that you know that inaccuracy the missing the easy ones. Stop sailing flows over guys. Heads who don't have defender and inside of them, you know? Um and just settle down, and then at a certain point, he is going to have to make some of those tougher throws on the run, and he's doing it. He's better than average. I think for drew to truly maximize his town. If we want to get back to the scene, a couple more Those really special throws and tight coverage for 25, plus yards like we were seeing in that Houston game back in 2019 so really cleaning that up. And making big plays. I think you know it. Z trike in that balance. Easy for me to say here, my cushy home, you know much harder when they're playing in the NFL with a rookie center. New offense and again, you know, monstrous defense's Striking that balance between taking what the defense gives you. And then when you do when you're taking your shot, man, let's make account. So I think that Yeah, I think that's really well said, And I think if anything we learned from this last game is that not everybody could play quarterback. I mean, I already knew that I feel like you were smart enough person to know that not everybody can play quarterback. But, um, you know, the dudes that hit us up every single week, telling us Well, I He could do that. I could do that What he's doing. Yeah, well, no, you could this the last thing though. For you. Based on that the talent, the relative talent that they have, and assuming you get the guys back that we're hoping we'll be back for next season. Do you think that this team has the talent to sort of make a couple of small, you know, adjustments and and maybe make a run next year? Man call me crazy, but I kind of do And I guess it's them from the fact that you know I do a lot of stuff on the NFL, but I also do this stuff on college football in the trash. And more so than any year since I've really been doing draft specific content on the Broncos, so you know, kind of in that Super Bowl 50. This is the hardest year. This is the first year where I can't just rattle off like five. This is a year where hate Von Coast actual on James comes back. You've got some young town. Obviously, you know, you're glad you like toe strengthen the roster and all all parts, But if everyone were to come back if you could figure something out with Justine Simons With the Shelby hairs. I don't see a ton of massive obvious needs. You're gonna have to have a little injury like I do think the death is gonna be. We're just not at a point where the depth is great right now. Well, yeah, I currently do Think this team could have a fighting chance? If maybe all the bad luck they have this year kind of swung the other way. I definitely think they could be competing for a wild card spot and being a nine and seven ranged Blossom. Love it, Andre. Great catching up with you again. Thank you So much for the time Excited to be talking to the NPR on Wednesdays, and we look forward to doing it again next week. Thank you. Pleasure. Ryan's always a pleasure to take care of my man. My man, Andre Simone Final on Twitter at Andre Simone does a really good job with the NPR bets with our guy RK Ryan Konigsberg. So check them out there as well Really good, And that that's kind of gonna be a fun conversation in the off season is sort of, as he said, kind of reversing a little bit of that bad luck. Utilizing the amount of adversity that they saw this year and just sort of spending that on his head. Getting some guy's back. And at that point, the biggest question becomes the quarterback. I mean, there's no quiet, there's no doubt about it right. I mean, if if Drew lock is the guy or if you decide to go in a different direction, which might mean you have to go through some growing pains with the next quarterback, but that's kind of it. I don't see a lot of holes either, And it's interesting because On Pff, and I'll talk about this right come back because they went to the free agents. I want to talk a little about that as well.

Live with that in my house, and then my first professional exposure was that was that course at University of Georgia and I didn't really realize it. There were strategies behind that. You know the the entire profession. Young think spin is usually kinda first book a lot of people pick up and questions. I think help people allot visit gets you away from the pitch right I agree and then you kind of flow. Through, a sequence. You know I, I like it a lot I. Well, the interesting thing about that course to is we had roe place to think about this. You know twenty years old exposed a role plays in in front of you know groups of people the rest of the class, and it wasn't a big class because this was junior senior year. So say you know thirty or so people and that's what I was like. This is kind of interesting. And what you into Oracle. So Well, my early in my career I was at startups. I was a small companies selling software, and there was a group of sped say ten or twelve of us we had leader. We had like a sales operations person we got a couple SEC. was kind of what you know I'd call the the whale hunters so they would give me the large accounts to kind of. And we would go to the small companies series as series B. Round funded companies, and this was pre two thousand. So again, I'm dating myself. But we would plug in plug out as a group, every eighteen or so to twenty four months. after doing I, think three or four really good runs and was post two, thousand I was like you like to try my hand at a larger. Company and I talked to Oracle a couple of times. In the Senate, don't have the profile. Startup guys. So So you know wasn't from sap or peoplesoft or Siebel or any of those companies. So they said no actually twice and then a recruiter called. A third time around ironically for the transportation team which had zero experience except for my father being an. Ounce. and. And I just met the right hiring manager to be honest with you. You think about some of the breaks you get. and. this guy was out of Houston and I think he saw value in in being a scrappy startup mindset with the combination of of a big company Oracle and and that's how I started at Oracle. Now is there for ten years and rose up to be a fourth line executive over over that period of time I'll say this comic because I tell that story when people ask is I actually thought that that mixed because it worked for me was a good mix like, okay. Let's look for the startup folks with that kind of scrappy mindset and I found out that I was kind of fifty fifty because the big companies can. Really kind of take a lot of energy out of the start mindset. You know what I mean. So it's it's kind of a an interesting marriage when it works. It is and it's rare to see somebody like yourself have such a great run there. Because I I was on the startup side to, and then got acquired by a portfolio company and you're just overwhelmed and like it wasn't me Riad and he just you can tell, right How'd you make your home there? How did you make it work for you at Oracle Yeah so so it was Kind of talk about break sub. So when I started I started the transportation burglars I mentioned and then quickly after that as a big company, there is a significant reorganization. Came into. Every. Hour. Gave it to another team in my my manager I really didn't like me. and. We're doing to deal with the railroad down in Florida and And you know he's having a tough quarter was one of those things where happen to have a really great quarter in the team did really really well, and I went from being all right who's this kind of outsider to part of the team and then really started to Get involved with the ethos of the company and started you know meet our executives which was critical and then when I ultimately went to salesforce, it was a similar. You know a very, very similar thing. So it was it was just kind of getting ingrained with the culture. The ethos of companies. And what motivated you to move up the ORG versus be elephant Andre. Great Question. I didn't have goals of being in leadership. Like doing well, we saw how much funding we're having. You had to do it. Right and. And so it was like a second or third line executive we were at a customer event of his in Golf Event in in Florida that Oracle sponsored. Like, Hey, have you ever thought getting into leadership? House. Like no, and at the time. And he was like I think you'd be great at it..

"Three days to get results of the test. That's just a recipe for allowing any cases to spread like wildfire. And I think that's what people in the province should fear most shouldn't fear a bunch of kids sitting in the park. Drink Andre Great to speak with you as always thank you thank you. Andre Picard is the Global Mail health columnist and a regular part of our ongoing cove nineteen coverage here at the current. This is the current on. Cbc Radio One. My Name's Matt Galloway. The airlines are essentially taking interest free loans from Canadians. Eight feels completely unjust. Like the airlines are taking people as fools. I feel completely disgusted and disheartened by this whole experience. Canadians want their money back from airlines for trips that were canceled by covid. Nineteen Prime Minister says the federal government is now looking into the airline refund policy. We need to have some very careful. Discussions with airlines With the air travel sector and indeed with Canadians Who are concerned to try and figure out a way forward where we can ensure that Canadians are treated fairly and our airline industry remains there for when our economy picks up again. It's a tricky balance for the prime minister may be for many Canadians though. The answer is pretty simple. Pay Up Scott. Friars family holiday to France was recently cancelled by Westjet. He's been struggling to get a refund. He is in Halifax Scott Good Morning. Good morning thanks for having me. Thanks for joining. Us just briefly. Tell me about the trip that you had planned. What were you GONNA do? We had a great family trip plan which goes from. Halifax here to To Paris. And we're GONNA Torun France for a few weeks and Unfortunately like teams are our plans were scuttled and We now have. We thought that we would Have our refunds properly cross unfortunately We've been offered a thirteen month. Restrictive Voucher by airmails. Not Not Twenty four months. Kind like what's widely reported and so yes we're kind of stuck Yeah so the trip cancellation policies reimburse as long as they travel out with an offer. So it's like Why Canadians in the left in the Lurch with With and this is something that you've been planning for a long time it had saved up for right and you're using points and also paying for it yes. Way Malls works. We will use almost twenty thousand miles which which takes many years to save up we We paid around fourteen hundred dollars in taxes and fees and saving up. Say for the best part of the year for that and unfortunately Yeah just kind of left in the works I mean. I do sympathize with the travel industry crisis. I mean it's you know it is Very bad thing But it's not. It's not really. Marg responsiblity as a customer to provide financial systems to to corporations. What did westjet offer you just to be clear when when the trump was canceled? What do they offer you Air Miles has offered us a thirteen month Restrictive travel voucher anywhere. That that West get will fly but has to be booked by February so with all the currents Non-essential travel ban some probably future non-essential. Travel bans. I. It's virtually worthless to us. I mean it's. It's very difficult to book a trip when there's a non essential travel ban and they have a thirteen month timeframe on this is just not. It's totally unacceptable now. There's talk as you said that this would be a twenty four month Travel though you're only being offered you say thirteen months. You have to use it within thirteen months and not kind of a problem. What do people like myself? Who booked through travel and she said been kind of left in the Lurch share? Maybe perhaps if book with West Chad or Eric Cantor or one of the airlines themselves. They offer better about voter but through third party. You know like expedient places like that a lot of us from what. I'M READING OUR OFFER. Like a one year travel credit which I think with the current crisis is not realistic at all. And there's no refund at the end of it is basically use it or lose if You know we could use this doctor for. Let's say a trip to Toronto. And they're all they're mostly save get used on one trip to Toronto Alexa. So it's totally unfair like there's no standards with the with the lack of regulation. We're actually the government overrode the current regulations. And now there's no standard. Canadians are just left. Basically with nowhere to turn and our regulator completely. Let us down by by Doing me at this whole this whole voucher. We got a statement from air miles. Which part reads if the airline ticket was booked and his non-refundable trans-border International Flight? That's been suspended. The collector that would be you will receive the value of the trip in the form of a travel credit. If the flight booked is refundable with or without penalties we will work with the provider to refund the value of your flight. Does that sit at all with you? Well I mean the product with a refundable ticket. I don't really know anybody who really buys refundable airline tickets like everybody just buys airline because they cost a lot more. If you want the full refund you have to pay a whole lot more to get that full. Never even heard such thing like most people have emergency trip cancellation and emergency medical coverage which which we had and when this happened I just assume that that will kick in as the airline themselves canceled the flight not us an I naively thought that. Oh it's it's you know it's not great but we will get malls back and our and our and our money has hit Li- again as Westjet said anything to you about this Westjet hands off their malls. They they say you purchase your ticket through the ear. Malls Travel Group and You have to talk to them. Ever malls tells us they're following West jets non-refundable policy. So we're we're really stuck as a lot of people are and I mean what you know. Like the regulation is is very clear that the customer has a request to refund. And if I mean I could perhaps be offered a votre. They could incentivize travel. Voters make more trackers to increase the uptake. Perhaps but the the right to a refund is is in the current regulations and regulations have not changed. Just before I let you go. Do you understand why I guess airlines would be reluctant to refund the money that if they refunded? Everybody's money for all the tickets that were paid there would be no airline at the end of that and I do understand that Airline Industries. I think they need to be supported in a different way. Perhaps like say that's that's not the customers responsibility to To provide involuntary financial system to a multibillion dollar profitable corporation. I mean these are huge huge firms. And say you know with this was the auto industry and I put a down payment on a truck and then Ford or whoever has financial problems? It's I'm sorry Mr Friars here's a here's a twenty four month non refundable voucher and we hope to get your talk to you. It would be totally unacceptable. And for some reason that's what's happening here and And customers are being told. Oh well you know. The industry is in trouble. Just work with them. It's like well. The regulations are clear. Perhaps if they gave The option like say to incentivize voucher or or for voter works for me. That's crazy. Yeltsin may not good luck and I appreciate. You brought us to tell us about this so I appreciate you getting in touch and we'll follow this along. Scott thank you well. That's great. Thank you very much that and take care and you Scott Friars joined us from Halifax we did contact both Westjet. And as I mentioned we've got that statement from air we did not hear back from Westjet Gabor. Lucaci has been listening in. He's the founder of the Canadian this advocacy group air passenger rights. He is also in Halifax this morning. Gabor good morning to you morning. Scott says that the regulations are clear. What is Canadian law? Say around voters getting your money back if you buy a ticket and your flight is canceled. What are you owed if the airline castles your flight for whatever reason you are old area fun to the original form of payment. This has been established for the past sixteen years. So what do you make of? What Scott's being told them that he says he was punted by Westchester to air miles air. Miles says we'll give you a voucher. There's questions to how long that voucher will be good for but you don't get your money back. Get a veteran standard. Unfortunately Canadian airlines are breaking the law. They are in practical terms trying to steal the public's money that money does not belong to the airlines. It is an unearned revenue and as such. It is has the same status as my neighbors car standing Next to a house. Yes it's next to my house but it's still not mine. Therein is are trying to take this money not because they would necessarily go bankrupt if they had to return. I think what you stated before was not quite correct mad and you're looking at Air Canada. They have liquidity of over five billion dollars. They understand and they owe to the public about two point. Six billion dollars. So even if they're funded everything they were still having two point. Four billion dollars available but this is really a cheaper way for them to get financing an easier way to get financing. What about the voucher? What's wrong with a votre even if there's a time limit on that voucher of twenty four months? What's what's wrong with a voucher. You cannot use it to buy groceries to pay bills or to pay taxes. The law says that their lives have to provide cash if vouchers were as good as cash and is going to be giving you cash. Obviously they're giving you vouchers because it is less valuable in terms of pastures prudence. The it was held that three dollars vouchers into one dollar in cash. So there's a one two three ratio which was found to be an adequate Cleveland even then it's quite clear that case though that if about as provided a passenger has to proactively agree to it it cannot be imposed on passengers at. I apologise maybe. I don't understand this. But if the law is as clear as you say it is and there's no fine print to the bottom of the page that. I perhaps didn't read after I bought the ticket. How is it that the can get away with not giving Scott his money back? Because currently federal regulator is clearly a very cozy with airlines issued that non-binding statement on their website somewhat. Endorsing this practice. We don't any real legal basis and there's no accountability other than perhaps through the media in terms of the legal side. They are already to class actions against five Canadian. Airlines whining Quebec in federal court. The whole there is accountable for the money that they have taken in have refused to refund so it.

"We shouldn't close our borders to Canada's with two countries with high levels of infection who January was repeating talking points out of the People's Republic of China about there being no evidence of human to human transmission you've written on twitter about Teresa Tam And the criticism around her. Do you think that criticism of her and of health candidate is fair. Listen there's no question we could have done better in a lot of areas retrospectively. You Know Hindsight's always twenty twenty but Dr. Tam has become this. Lightning Rod for criticism. And I think quite unfair criticism. Mr Kennedy's comments yesterday for example blaming her for you know we don't have enough test. That's not really something she's responsible for in any way. She's the public health officer. This notion that I keep reading on twitter and this is kind of a trump like accusation. It's she's an agent of China because she repeats the what the. Who says you know what we have is? Canada's top public health officials taking advice from the top public health agency in the world. That doesn't strike me as outrageous where they slow. Are they a little too diplomatic? Perhaps but you can't take the diplomacy out of public health especially when she's in that position which is largely. I don't WanNa say symbolic but she doesn't have any control over all the provinces so it has to be a very diplomatic job so short answer to your question. I think she's getting way too much blame for the power she has. She has said that one of the issues that we will look back on in the wake of this. Pandemic is the issue of long-term care. You've been talking about this as well. Police in health officials in Quebec have launched an investigation. Thirty one people died. Seniors residents at least five of them from Cova Nineteen. The premier said that it looked like gross negligence. We talked about the situation at the long term. Care home in Bob Cajun now situation unfolding in toabacco part of Toronto. You've said that this pandemic has exposed a crisis of neglect for our elders. What do you mean by that where we neglected elders for a long time? Especially in Long Term Care. And this is just showing. How bad things are once? You Get a virus. In their it exposes all the other problems understaffing poorly paid staff lack of training. People you know in this day and age we still have many homes with two people or four people in a room. That's just a recipe for disaster when you have people who are very susceptible to infectious diseases and that's what we're seeing All these homes have a list of dozens of homes with more than twenty deaths. All of these were not all preventable. But they were largely preventable. We had a warning. The very first warnings were who's going to be hardest hit by this while people in facilities who are frail and who have underlying conditions and this has come true and we. We didn't really do a lot to to prevent it. You said that this is also a larger societal issue and you talked about the language that we use a word like elderly. What happens when we use that word? What does elderly mean? It's sort of a code. Word for disposable are well. They're ready to die anyhow. They've been around a long time as some people we've seen. Some people articulate this in in pretty crude germs. Saying listen to these people are GONNA Die Anyhow. Let them just dive covet. Those people was conservative. Mp Mark Dalton who said on twitter and he later deleted this tweet. Most deaths are in care homes where the average life expectancy is two years and sixty five percent. Usually pass in the first year is a time to start moving Canada. Back to work right. And that's this argument. We've seen all sorts of the US that Let's just sort of call the elderly right. Let's they're going to die anyhow so it might as well kill him off sooner. Get back to work. It's a pretty awful way of thinking and I don't think people think that when they put it in terms of their own grandmother or their own mother in that situation and that's how we have to treat people as we treat our own loved ones and that's certainly not the way people are being cared for in homes so once this pandemic passes what needs to change when it comes to seniors seniors homes operate. Well we need to do what You know countless inquiries have been telling us for thirty or forty years Get proper staffing. Don't have single rooms don't have people bunched into a rooms like it's a prison. Get people properly trained Invest properly in these homes. The government really a lot of these institutions or government funded. They're grossly underfunded. We've had staff shortages for at least a decade in all of the country. Nothing has ever done to do that to to deal with that. We had an inquiry after this mass murder by a nursing Ontario that outlined. All these problems she was allowed to kill people with impunity would have never been caught. Had she had not confessed. That tells me a lot about the state of these homes and how we just neglect people and don't oversee them properly in the meantime yeah so there are good homes. I don't WanNa pay tar everyone with the same brush. There's excellent care there and we should learn from those homes and we should make this universal not the exception do you expect other provinces to pick up on what Quebec is doing INEXP- inspecting all private long term care facilities and public ones in that province. Well I think Quebec has doing this. It's overdue other in other jurisdictions to do it but I was shocked to hear yesterday. Ontario said. No we're not gonNA test everyone in Long Term Care. It's a waste of tests and eighteen strikes me as unthinkable. That policy could act is going to test everyone in the homes and they should because we're going to find a lot a lot of infected people that people have talked a lot about what we will be like in who we will be when we come out the other side of this. Is this one of the reckonings. Do you think in terms of how we care for our elders. I think this is going to be one of the big reckonings we're GONNA have to rethink about the place of all older people in society. Do we want to institutionalize them in the numbers that we do? We have four hundred thousand older people in Institutional Care in Canada. We want a different approach to we want to have smaller more intimate homes like they do in European countries like Denmark. Do we want to pay people a decent living wage so that they don't have to move from one institution to the next? In Quebec people were getting paid as little as thirteen dollars. An hour to do this really really hard. Work physically mentally demanding work address. It seems unthinkable. Andre Great to speak with you as always lots to To mull over thank you. Thank you undercard. As the global health columnists will check in with him regularly in the weeks ahead from.

"To the Clippers won a lot of people were flagging. It was either going to be the clippers. The Lakers here L. A. C. Gets Morris Isaiah Thomas as well to the clippers notaro's in trade know. Derrick Rose Oh straights they know Kevin Love Trait Holiday Levin Notch rated. PG Tuckerman a nice trade. Houston he got those stilts. Because you sit at six six and other Andre Great Drummond was traded but he was traded to the cavaliers so not a contender. So frank basically just the clippers and heat of the contenders making sizable moves. How do you gauge that? The clippers made a really good movie. Marcus Morris was the best player in the next and also the spokesman of the team. And you see where that gets you as the fourth best player on your team fist. Ba- fifth best player. That's the guy that can knock down at three toughness. He can guard. Lebron James wants the Lakers. Didn't get it with dollar. They were trying to get Marcus. Morris very good move by the clippers. Aubron Marcus Morris is. He's a pro. He's a pro's pro kind of guy. He knows how to play. He knows what's up. He knows he's been around. He's seen a lot of stuff and he can play this game. I think and I do agree. Totally that he's going to be a tremendous addition to the clippers team that I think needed a little more depth than I really i. I really think this is a good one else. Made a move of those Lakers bucks a sizable move Denver. How how do you gauge that Celtic Brian? Well people either couldn't find what they really really wanted or in one case of look team the city where I'm sitting. We predicted it was predicted. Danny Angel and Brad Stevens actually. Yeah I don't think there's going to be any major moves. This is funny thing two years in a row now. The Celtics have done zero on on this day last year. It didn't work out. We'll see if it works times uh-huh I think all those seams at the top of the East got really lucky that he didn't do anything but Miami Galadari which I think would have put them as the clear number number two so by staying put their sort of you know maintaining position in the west I would have liked to see Denver do something I know. Holiday was rumored to be a target for them. I think that could have put them over the edge because right now they look good. They're young but they're not among the court joke. It's his game winners straightness. Why Yo Avenue? Boom Emily Kaplan about you. Yeah the Marcus Morris signing with our trade rather. It was really interesting to me mostly because they prevented him from going to the Lakers. Who didn't didn't WanNa give up their beloved Kyle Kuzma but more so they missed out unequal dolla? They missed out on COVINGTON. They finally got a guy. Unfortunately I'm not quite sure it's the right guy. Yes he ranks eighth and pick can roll scoring which is great. And I think he'll adept scoring for them but they really could have used a big guy if they have to even nuggets of the jazz in the playoffs. They don't have a big man up against Yokich or ooh forgot rudy. Go Okay pointing off Frank Guy Sola you wanna address the pecking order here now in the NBA. All right did anything changed in the last twenty four hours for you. Are we still looking at books for sure in the East. Are we still looking at clippers or Lakers for sure in the West I think menas right. I think Miami Amy Definitely got better than it made. Probably the biggest jump that they wanted to make. But I look at the Lakers now. They've already lost twice to the clippers and the Lakers were thinking all along. We're going to get Andrea a dollar on a buyout. That doesn't happen. You don't get Marcus Morris. Then there was an idea that would get derrick rose and the Drummond one is fascinating because a month ago he seemed like the biggest guy out there. Basically basically Detroit gave them way. 'cause they will worried he would actually opt into his contract. So Andre Drummond. There's several big free agent Ryan.

"Now Romans Romans interesting because he has a player option. His his player option for next year is twenty five point four million. I feel like that's going to be hard for him to get anywhere else sliding he's going to stay because he's not going to get the money. He is an elite rebounder and he hasn't proved a scored but I don't think people are going soon. Dope the money on the table for them because the League has changed three points shooting game. He's not issuing investment. Is that typical. I get you fifteen ten rebounds and maybe maybe twelve or thirteen points just wall paint Berg so I think Drummond is going to pick his option up. I think he's going to stay in Detroit. I just don't see I mean I could use him but I don't see him leaving unless he knew he would have a better offer. Some royals seven is Gordon Hayward I think Gordon Gordon is going to be interesting. Also because he's getting paid a lot already has a player option is thirty two million player so he's getting a lot of money again. This is kind of a situation like Andre Great. I mean I think this his but I like I feel he would pick the option I think he would. I thinks you'll stay in Boston because especially if the team does really well this year he does well. I feel like he would stay in is only another year so so. I don't think it would be Boston any way of keeping him on a year. I don't think they would get tatum in them. The Big Max deal after twenty twenty twenty twenty one season anyway. So I think Gordon Hayward will stay with Boston Celtics. He'll he'll remain there part of that that you cliche or Boston and mantras Harold unrestricted right. Now he's on a team. Brindley contract with the Clippers Mancha's herald has proven. This man is is a good finisher at the rim. He's a good rebounder a a slightly undersized but very athletic. He's a guy that I think. A lot of teams could use him. A lot of teams could could want to keep pimm on. Are they want to sign him to their team. I believe that a lot of places. 'cause one uh-huh would be a star role was teams right now off the bench just because the Brazil Odi but you know he's GonNa usually finish aims so much as heroin. I think right now he will. I think he's going to go because I just don't pay. He's GonNa play himself into an ice paid all the money either. Having spent on Paul George violated. I just I don't see them. Keeping Mantras Herald at a very big high mark next We have Joe Harris of the job the nets top offshoot league and obviously this is a shooting. So I like anything that he's shooter and it leaks you like him. I think they should look into getting Joe Harris. He's calling a younger. Jj redick a guy lashing great clip from three He member twenty Acheson. He shot forty seven percent three. So he's a he's a marksman he is shooting. If any shooting I feel like he will command a lot of suitors on the market. He may not he make the same contract that JJ ready guts. The delegates of not higher. Because because shooting.

"You do it for a living. And I wanna say defense game four in the books. Two games games. Everything you saw last night. I need the Bob FitzGerald takeaway to Tuesday morning may seven for well. Good morning fits second of all go. Well, I think the game for you gotta harken back to to game seven a year ago, and I'm going to quote, one of the warrior owners and Peter Guber in that lock is a big part of success in pro sports and into not think it is is unrealistic. And so if warrior fans and winning a title last year, I don't think it was lucky that the Houston Rockets missed twenty seven straight threes in their own building a game seven doesn't mean. The warriors weren't good. It means you got some good fortune. So you look at the rockets last night, they score eleven points in the final nine minutes there four of their last twenty they getting absolutely run out of their own building and ear incredibly lucky that Durant and staff and clay went seven of twenty six on threes ago in the warriors miss seven layups and the warriors miss seven free throws. Mean the rockets weren't good, but they received some good fortune from the best shooting team in the world. And so that's where you're at right now to to and it's probably where it should be and the beauty of a seven game series. Is you don't lock into winning a seven game series? You make any game or two or get some good fortune. But over seven games you prove with a better team is and so now you have a best of three with two games at oracle ever. Oh, it's seven. No. I don't think. So I think the words will win game five, and I think they'll go to Houston a win game six nice in just over like the clipper series because the warriors on balance are better than the rockets. But they're not better by a lot. They're not dominance every game has been decided by six points or less, and that's where sometimes good fortune fate. You know in introducing itself into a series. So I'm just looking at the volleyball players better start shooting like volleyball players again. The amount of open threes. I've seen the last two games or miss free throws or misled are. That's a shocking to me. I'm watching Shaun Livingston missed the layup. Viga dollar slaps. Draymond was so great in the fourth quarter. He missed the layup. And Katie and Steph f wide open threes, how the hell the rockets not fouling up three you saw Austin rivers in the huddle saying we have to foul and Kevin Durant had a wide open. Look when that doesn't go in. I'm sorry. You got some dumb ass luck and good for the rockets that they built the cushion to withstand the whole run as they fell apart in their own building in the fourth quarter going to take the whole Murph approach of this again myself here, Bob, but like tell me what you see with the warriors right now physically I in terms of how hobbled are some of their key guys right now. Well, I mean Steve has gone with the guy rotation and they've run the heavy duty guys out there, which is good. I mean, that's what they're supposed to do at this time of year. The problem is I said this on the Fitz and Brooke show, and it'll be the same thing for Wednesday and Friday four of the five half to fire. Okay. And so in game three Andre great Crame on great Durant. Great. Stephan. Clay, not so much last night. Steph was fine. Durant was fine. Draymond was fine. Audrain clay not so much four out of the five guys have to have games for the warriors to win. And it's Klay Thompson time and or economic time because Durant and Draymond have been there every single game. Steph even not making threes was still a major factor in that game at eight assists at the thirty points. And really even though the three wasn't going. He hit some late, and he was still driving to the bucket very nicely. But Claes off. Man. I mean, he up clay is really struggling offensively. And we did it during the regular season when the warriors don't make ten threes. They don't win. I mean, they have a losing record when they don't make ten threes. And it's part of their DNA that wide open threes gotta get railed in. It's not I mean to see Durant Steph and Klay goes seven of twenty six on threes, and what we're seven or eight of them guarded. I mean, you're almost talking eighteen wide open threes, and they're missing at that rate that is unusual. That's like a team I Houston meeting twenty seven straight threes in a game seven. Yeah. The rockets were one of twelve on threes in the fourth quarter last night. I mean, that's that that bodes well. Down the road. They missed sixteen twenty shots talking about Fisher on the fits files by Jill. We kind of talked about this before. But they're getting out rebounded, especially on the offensive boards and PJ Tucker's now talk about being even more physical. Do we see more minutes from Bogot possibly, and I I know I asked you this again by maybe cook for Livingston Livingston's looking kind of bad out there. Yeah. I don't think you'll see many changes on that. And the rebounding remember the second chance points last night with exactly the same eleven points. Each the reason the rockets got a few more rebounds as they missed a lot more shots. They only shot forty three percent. So, you know, some of those like a hardened jumper in the fourth at Klang so bad to the right? It went to PJ Tucker who was standing in the right corner rebounded anywhere in the lane. There were three warriors around their long shots you long rebounds. So you get some randomness to that. But if Houston at thirty second chance points in the words at five you'd say, oh my God. But it was eleven each the points off turnovers faded the warriors by to the free throws were right, basically, even this came down to warrior shooting miss free. Throws mislaid miss threes that that was the story of game for any way, you want to parse it. So, you know, I think Draymond soundbite. You guys ran the warriors. No, they know. Hey, three and four could have gone either way. You know, wanted to I think to the words led the entire way. But there to to there to two and they neither team has won by more than six ball teams know what they're a game. Looks like the rockets haven't seen the warriors game yet. We have not had a fifty percent shooting forty percent on threes. Klay, Steph and Durant all firing at one of those games yet and four and your to to and you have home court advantage. So I think they win game five and I think they win game six in Houston. And then everybody's like, wow. It didn't go seven in the warriors one in six just like they did against the clippers could very well be the case. And but also could be seven it could be any number of tournaments. Get into non analytics non data here and get into intangibles, which is always sort of dangerous, but also kind of fun, and that is a reading the Houston chronicle, and they said that the the warriors looked shaky invulnerable. And then I was reading somebody else said that Houston established superiority in the series. And I was just wondering about, you know, the takeaway from Steph not performing the rockets having that magic word momentum's or are other belief that every NBA playoff game is its own entity. And that there is no such thing and just wondered your feeling on the intangibles of Houston getting two in a row and feeling like big burly momentum grabbing linebackers. Well, I think the you know, if you look at it they've played twenty one times in the playoffs. The warriors are fourteen and seven so I don't know where the rockets would feel any superiority when people off because they're on the last two they want. But here's the big point. You had it when they led by seventeen if. Rolled to a thirty point win and tied it up, and strut it off the court. I would have been one thing they led by seventeen and got horse for nine minutes in their own building. When it mattered most. Yeah, it we're damn lucky Durant and Steph missed threes. Because at that game goes to overtime the rockets lose they went one for their last twelve on threes. They went four of twenty in the final nine minutes in their own building. Yeah. So to think that the rockets are running around thinking, we're the greatest we're gonna win like, okay? Great right cover themselves in glory down the stretch. Let me three this other just again, we're just having fun. The rockets being good and tying the series. And all that there's no way the warriors are like, we're superior. We're gonna roll them. Now, the rockets feel that way either. So to to write that or to take that angle is you're whistling in the dark there that makes no sense. Let me ask you about this mileage in minutes, and you can't view the warriors in a vacuum of game five. I'm looking at them in a five year span, even before Durant. This every year doing this now doing this in the mileage mileage in minutes mileage in minutes in his that may be part of the reason. In addition to the ankle injuries, which we don't know the extent of with Steph and clay is mileage in minutes. A reason why Stephan clay would be mission shots. Do you think mileage and minutes or reasoned that no team has ever gone to the finals five straight years? Sixty answer is yes. There's a reason it didn't happen. It hasn't happened in sixty years or that Dunkin Spurs didn't do it or Jordan's bulls or Magic's Lakers Kobe's Lakers. You know that nobody is gone to the finals five straight years as a team because of that because of mileage in minutes when you see Steph played his hundredth playoff game last night. They've had a whole season within these years on their season. Yeah. I mean, that's you know, that that really that's a factor. But that's what will make it if they are able to achieve it, so incredible. But the other issue is the best six year run in the sport. It's going to end it sometime like it's going to end, and maybe the rockets of the team that ends it right now. But it's going to end like teams don't end up doing this for nine ten twelve. It just does not happen. So it's gonna end I don't know if it ends this year, but it's going to end, by the way, Bob we got Bob Kraft on online too, and he's going. No, it never ends. Never ends. We're going gonna keep doing it for another twenty years. Yeah. Well in football. You know, you get the quarterback in the coach that we saw the Niners. I mean, this is the thing. I was trying to put in perspective to the warriors about this. Great seven straight playoff years. Best six year run in the sport. Yeah. The Niners were phenomenal with ten or more wins basically for almost twenty years. Right twice as long as. Warrior run. That's that's where the Niners the patriots. You. Gotta you gotta keep that keep that in mind. We saw the giants when three and five years unbelievable. But to sustain it yet. In various, sports and basketball, just is not last as long as many other sports. And there's a reason the greatest ever been sixty years since the team went to the finals five straight years. That's what they're trying to the night. I remember a covered the Niners during the Steve Young years in bardo to came from the New York Giants told us one day, we just shooting the breeze. He goes you guys. You guys are no this is a this is a Haley's comet deal because you don't have a hall of fame quarterback succeed, the hall of fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Brett farve might be rare. Yeah, they did not put together the string that young and Montana put together with in terms of. So it's like you're saying in in Brady's insane reversal of aging is the only reason the patriots are still doing it. And so yeah, it is the Bob you shouldn't tell me that. I just sunk a lot of money into the chase center seats with my buddies. I don't wanna hear that. It's ending buddy. I don't wanna go watch Jacob Evans, the third lane bricks for the money. I'm saying it's all in what you want out of your team. Like to me. I always celebrate even though they've won five titles. But twenty two straight playoff seasons by the San Antonio, Spurs ain't say, yeah. I mean, like twenty two straight that you know, the warriors have made seven straight, which is amazing. They're not even a third of the way to the Spurs. You're going to measure your life like my team's got to win the title or else. Well, then you're going to be really disappointed as a fan. Gets back to the giants who always brush up against with you too. Is that you know, for all the ca-, vetting and moaning about the last couple of seasons..

I do think it's a little cynical that Don assuming the Don created that coke commercial.

"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn, other than the fact that the Oscars ceremony is happening Sunday without a host, it seems we don't know much about the telecast other than that. There will be an eclectic group of celebrities. Introducing the best picture nominees. Among them are chef Jose, Andres tennis champ. Serena Williams and congressman John Lewis the road to the telecast is littered with ideas that the academy proposed and then ditched like a new award for most popular film to eliminate awards and songs from the live broadcast. The idea was to streamline the ceremony and try to boost falling ratings to unpack where we ban and where we might all go on Sunday. I'm joined by New York Times. Oscar calmness. Kyle buchanan. You know, John is sort of liken it to a politician who is courting undecided. Voters at the expense of his base. You know, if you love the Oscars, you should be operating from a place of convincing people why the Oscars are great, not trimming them down and apologizing for them. And thinking that that's going to win over undecided. It won't and it's only going to infuriate the rest of the industry as the academy has done countless times this season. No. And then you look at the ideas of presenters, and I have to say like Jose Andres. Great chefs great humanitarian, but he is going to be presenting a major awards. Serena williams. I mean, there's some interesting people. But I don't really know what the academy's going for here. If they're worried about making the show more relevant. It doesn't feel like they have an organizing principle. No. I mean, I think that is for better for worse with a host can provide, you know, whether it's a host presiding over a writer's room or a host just giving you sort of a north star to to organize everything around without that the producers of the show have insisted that they're going to have such a list presenters that we won't need a host. But at from this standpoint, and we can talk again, you know after. Sunday show. It's it's not necessarily moving the needle. I would agree in some of those names include Dana, Carvey, not sure. Well, I believe he and Mike Myers. We'll be presenting siemian wraps. Oh, yeah. Because Mike Myers is in it. And of course, they famously sang that song in Wayne's world, Barbara Streisand. I assume she'll be presenting some clips of star is born actually don't know if she will. I had heard that. Serena Williams is presenting a star is born which makes me wonder if Barbara Streisand is presenting the ultimate best picture could be we should stop and say that while the kademi awards are highly rated typically one of the top ten broadcasts in any given year last year show with the lowest rated in Oscar history and ABC which has a long term deal to broadcast the Oscars pays I think the neighborhood about seventy million dollars to to run the show. So it's important that they are able to sell more than seventy million dollars in advertisements. And I think that was what was really motivating the academy. They're trying to make ABC happy. And now, it seems as if the number one mandate that the academy had for the show's producers deliver an Oscar ceremony under three hours won't happen. So people on the east coast won't know the best picture. Winner until probably close to eleven thirty at night. I mean, I don't understand why they don't just move it up a little bit earlier in the day as they deal with the Super Bowl. Nobody is telling the Super Bowl that it needs to be shorter. It is famously larded broadcast to the point where the commercials have become their own thing for the Oscars, which is the second biggest entertainment event on television after the Super Bowl to be treated as sort of the stepchild it kind of confounds me. It's still ABC's. Biggest telecast wouldn't they want to maximize it? Yeah. You would think. So let's talk about the show itself. I would say there are a couple really prominent races, including best picture that have a lot of drama around them. Do you think that will add to the suspense will add to the suspense will it add to the interest as far as the general population tuning in? There are very big movies in contention this year for best picture like Black Panther a star is born bohemian rhapsody, but they are not considered to be the two front runners for best picture. So. For Oskar watchers. Yes, there is a lot of suspense for regular people. Hopefully, Black Panther will get them to tune in. How important are the acceptance speeches because at the nominees lunch? The president of the kademi John Bailey went on at length about how short these speeches should be. And how good they should be. Nobody ever seems to listen though. I mean, yeah, we don't wanna see somebody just recite a long list. Absolutely. But we do want is a moment. I worry by cutting the Oscar telecast to the bone. You're shipping the potential for moments to occur. And now, I want to get some perspective, you know, last year one of the longer speeches was Francis. Mcdormand's best actress speech may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category. Stand with me in this room tonight, the actor..

"A platform called Alice. That's an online platform, and why is that important frontier. Preneurs when they're going because a lot of women don't have day care. Don't have kids, you know, like if they're working two job, and they want to do this. They're doing it at night, you know, on the computer, whatever. So we're trying to tack all the different areas that can. Bring forward lots of new talent and get all the players on the field that quite frankly have been left too much on the sidelines as we've been building companies. But again, why is that because you have to identify the problem? What happens in the system is? It is I I don't see a lot of changes. I mean, I see you when I see a couple more, but they're peripheral they're still peripheral. I see a lot of changes. But I want to be super clear that by no means are we anywhere close to mission accomplished, but we sort of felt this way carrots kind of like what I said about ell's growth took ten years to get to the first million. And then a year later, we had four million more. I do think at some point a fly will affect we'll take place. I have a friend in New York who has worked with the Canadian Prime Minister and some other women and we've worked together to do this initiative called just add one and the idea is, you know, things start to really change when you put a female on the board. Yes. That sounds crazy. But it's. Very true. You know, she widens the perspective. She widens network of likely candidates things change when a woman goes into the C, suite things change when a woman becomes a partner in a law firm. So, you know, I think that there are some who wanna see a regulated percentage, and I can see a strong argument for that. But there's others who are saying. Well, what if you just said all add one this year? Could we eventually get flywheel affect going? So there enough women helping to bring only reason those regulatory things come in because it just doesn't move. Yeah. I agree doesn't. So let's sell. Yes. Exactly. Because self-regulation often doesn't work. Yeah. Always with these people. I'm sorry. I just don't I don't see, you know, look at Microsoft would have kept, you know, they're they're vicious ways. They were stop. Well. And I absolutely believe there's a place for regulation a lot of stuff you're talking about in Silicon Valley as well. I mean, you know, I think we can leave in the philosophy maybe of like free markets self-regulation. But at some point you have to say enough and find a better numbers don't move. So talk. So so that was number four one more. Thanks. That's my favorite one. Okay. Let urgency conquer fear. Okay. And actually, this is a pretty powerful on principle. So there is I believe in urgency Jean. I know you ask with urgency off with urgent. I do gene. Get moving. A little faster. So letter Djincic conquer fear. Really is this awareness that basically when your back's against the wall? Maybe when you're mad as heck, maybe when you know, you're gripped with fear, whatever the moment is calling to you. Sometimes that will get you out of your comfort zone. And what I write in the book is nothing. Great comes from the comfort zone. We all love being there. That's comfortable place. But that's not what great stuff comes from. So sometimes urgency is that extra piece.

"This is one A I'm Joshua Johnson, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador struggling with violence economic hardship and corruption these conditions contribute to migrants making their way toward the US southern border. We're discussing at this hour with professor Greg Grandin of NYU. Professor, Elizabeth Oglesby of Arizona state. And Brian winter the editor in chief of America's quarterly we'd love to hear from you your questions about the US involvement in Central America. Or what might be done to make the region more stable or your experiences in Central America, either as a visitor or as a descendant of someone who's Honduran Salvadoran or Nicaraguan, or if you are from those countries yourself and migrated here to the US, we'd love it. If you comment on our Facebook page tweet us at one A or Email one A at W A M U dot org before we keep going. Professor B. I wonder if you could respond to John's question about drugs, Brian mentioned, the drug trade John tweeted if Americans and Europeans stopped. Using illegal drugs would that help alleviate the violence in Latin America, professor, yes? Certainly that's a part of it. But the broader the underlying issue is one of impunity, an impunity. That's a legacy of the counterinsurgency wars in Central America during the Cold War. So the drug trade is part of that. But there are other parts as well. For example, US Canadian European foreign investment in Guatemala, insect in extractive sectors, like mining hydroelectric dam projects, which are displacing a lot of communities, especially in Guatemala and Honduras. So the drug trade is part of the problem. But the underlying issue is one of impunity. That relates to what is going on in Guatemala right now this week which analysts in Guatemala are calling a slow motion coup where the president of Guatemala Jimmy Morales who was under investigation by tamales, anti nitty commission has just expelled that commission from Guatemala in defiance of a court order so Guatemala's in a constitutional crisis right now in its effort to address those underlying issue seven unity. We do want to talk more about what's going on in Guatemala as we continue our conversation. But let me get to few more listener comments. Amanda emailed, I visited Rotan Honduras a few years ago and was told by a local that the US and in particular former secretary of state Clinton had a direct hand in a military coup that overthrew a popular democratically elected president today Honduras is a broken nation. Why why do we keep? Interfering in other countries. This topic has come up with several of you, including with this listener K who's from Washington state. Here's what k- left in our inbox. The thing that doesn't seem to be getting mentioned much is the US involvement in the politics of all those countries for quite a good many years, but we only have to look as far back as Honduras when the democratic elected president who wanted to do things for the people and didn't want big business to just get big profit and leave was was done in by coup. And are then secretary of state Hillary Clinton recognize the new leader does very next day K. Thanks very much for calling in. Professor granted. I wonder if you would respond to k and Amanda with regards to secretary Clinton and Andre great questions. And great points. And yes, the US has been involved in Central America. I mean in two ways there's specific incidents the nineteen fifty four coup in the two thousand nine coup in Honduras, which is what's referred to the Obama administration. There's debate about how how directly involved it was in the actual coup which overthrew a democratically elected reformer that was siding with social movements along the lines that professor we talked about classic kind of siding with the status quo. The Obama administration eventually recognized and legitimated that coup. And you see a lot of people traced back the current disaster and catastrophe. That's particularly in rural areas. Hard hit by the fast expansion of African palm per bio-fuel production and odd one valley or in urban cities like San Pedro, Douglas. These are really some of the regions with highest murder rate in the world, and that's driving a lot of the migration. So there's this specific events, and then there's the lodger policies that the US promotes that contribute to the out-migration one is economic. The what's often called development aid supports the infrastructure of a further extraction biofuel production African palm the space spread of African palm in the polish. He valley where the seven year old watermelon girl Jacqueline. Was from. Was is really devastated by African palm a lot of the migrants from Honduras. Come from one Bali same thing. Skyrocketing bylines. The drug war. We talked about the drug trade, but there's also the drug war. A lot of the a lot of the catastrophe. That's happening in such American to be traced back to Bill Clinton's Plan Colombia. Actually, professor granted. Let me let me let me stop you there because there's a lot of moving. There's a lot of moving parts here. And yes, he's very this is very complex. I just wanna make sure that go a little bit at a time. Would you finish just explaining about African palm? What is that piece of this bomb has grown to produce biofuel? It's it's not native obviously to to Central America. So a lot of peasant communities that grew corn beans, I the subsistence or for their own regional local markets just being wiped out as large plantations moved in a lot of it is financed by US development aid or multi multinational, banks, developmental banks, and they moved into regions that that had been able to. Support some local economies regional economies. Markets corn and beans and just kind of spread through and displace these communities, and and there's a lot of an and that creates two things one is fightback among the peasants peasant who don't want to lose their land and plantations either because of market forces because landowners are using violence and coercion to get them the turnover title or to evict them or they just have no more work. They they cornered so cheap because they can't compete with US agro-industry because of these free trade treaties, or or there's just not the markets have been completely distorted and destroyed as a result of the spread of a kind of plantation economy. Okay. So let me come back to Brian winter on that point in particular. Do we have a clear sense in terms of the number of migrants, we see coming or trying to at least to come into the US along the southern border of how much? These particular effects have affected certain migrants. In other words, is there a way for us to know, Brian, you know, this many people from this country are attempting to cross into the southern border because of the African the influence of African palm on on farmwork, farmers and farm workers. Is there a way to know that I think there's a way to know it specifically by by talking to people and a lot of the reportage that I've seen and read from the border. You know, a lot of these people come from rural areas, there's no question and in a country like Honduras, where you've got nearly two thirds of the labor force either unemployed or underemployed it's clear that there's something wrong with government policy in these places, but you know, drawing generalizations about why they're coming. I think the best we can do is saying that it's because you know, again polling shows this is really economically driven. And in that sense. You know, what's happening? There is new. You and there are some factors that are unique to Central America. And then this is also a tale that is as old as time, and certainly as old as the United States itself, which is it's people seeking opportunity in a richer safer country, which is the US. That's what this country was was made from professor Oglesby. Let me talk wanna Tamala for just a moment as we mentioned. It's one of the countries were very hard hit by US foreign policy in Central America. We mentioned those two children who died last month in US federal custody. One of them. Professor granted mentioned Jacqueline column. Mckean Philippi Gomez Alonso who both died after seeking asylum at the border with their families. We mentioned the US and Guatemala, and what happened in one thousand nine hundred fifty four professor Oglesby. Were what was the immediate consequence of that? Was it clear that the current state of affairs would shape up or did it kind of take a while for things to get to the point where they are now. So the coup. Was the watershed in Guatemala. It really started a civil war that lasted until nineteen ninety six which had various intense moments, especially in the early nineteen eighties where the Guatemalan military. Committed genocide through a scorched earth campaign, nearly seven hundred massacres displacing one and a half million people mostly in the rural areas of Guatemala. So that is the first great wave of Guatemalan migration to the United States. When the peace accords were signed in the nineteen nineties. Some people who had taken refuge in Mexico went back to Guatemala, but they found that they could not survive in this society that the war had created. And so international migration became a form of reparation really for those people and that was supported by Guatemalan leads. They were only too happy to see people immigrated even the World Bank in the nineteen nineties began to see international immigration as a kind of development policy, of course, then after the nineteen nineties is professor grand and described the border became more militarized. And so that seeking opportunity or that form of international education is reputation for the war became much more difficult and dangerous for people. But the the roots of the migration that we're seeing today are definitely in Guatemala are definitely in. History of civil war in the history of displacement. And we're in many ways we're seeing that replicated today perhaps not at the scale of the genocide of the early nineteen eighties. But just in the last year thirty environmental activists have been assassinated in Guatemala, and these are community leaders who are trying to protect their communities from extractive industries like mining or large scale dams or the extension of of African palm sugar cane plantations for biofuel, these are the people who are trying to struggle for a different way of life. So that people can stay in Guatemala, right? But they're coming up against the limits of what the system is willing to tolerate and there's a violent backlash. And so that's why I return to the. To the problem of impunity. Because as long as the states in Central America are captured by violent criminal networks, and as long as there is a life or death risk for community organizers who are trying to find a different way of life. Then there can be no solution to this might issue that might dovetail into a voicemail. We got from Keith who called us from Arlington Virginia not far from here. Here's what he left in our inbox. I worked forty years in Central America, fifteen years when fischel US passport, and I saw that the US bear some responsibility for problems in the region, for example, the US negotiated a free trade agreement which opened up markets, undermining the Central American small farm sector in benefiting farmers and agribusinesses it directly led to out migration to cities in the US and the further weakening governors who he's in the courts..

"As the big concern him at the andre eighty yeah they're offensively they're actually funny if you mix those two guys together they'd be the perfect player just the andres great on offense and kind of a little lackluster on defense whereas bomba is unbelievable on defense and kinda round out an offensive game but yeah both guys make a huge impact on either side their particular side of the ball george wha what is the need for a guy like baba the sense obviously he's intriguing because of his size because of everything you just mentioned but because he's relatively limited offensively in the way that the game has gone we're even guys like embiid and everybody else stepping out to shoot three point shots is he's still a very valuable piece to have on your team even if he doesn't have much offense at this point oh yeah i mean certainly because you still need guys that can protect the rim asli because as many guys are shooting threes you know more more than half the game is still played at the rim i mean look to give you an example right so the houston rockets shot i think fifty two percent of their shots last year from three point land and you know about forty percent or so maybe forty five somewhere in that range was at the rim so even a team like that who shot more than anybody last year is still taking almost half their shots at the rim so you want a guy who's a deterrent and as i mentioned you know he's been working on his three point shot it wasn't something that at texas they wanted him to take very often but during the process here he's been really working on it and the one thing scouts say about bomba is that he actually has nice shooting form it's just a matter of him taking the on shot saying he kinda run over that that part of his game trae young to me is the starved as draft i know has been up and down projection for him as a prospect but what do you see where do you think he goes chris i'm always afraid marcellus of the guy that we say is oh he's the next this guy right like i i didn't love that would you lose random when they were trying to make him the next rand off you know i always i heard victor depot the next wayne weight and look those guys julie's it's turned out to be a nightmare and victor certainly slayer slayer but you know they're not those dudes that we talked about right like do are potential hall of fame type guys in back and certainly dwayne skate so when you hear that he could be the next steph curry i kinda cringe a little bit because i just feel like it puts unnecessary pressure on a kid like that and to me it's all about where you were you land right like if he lands in the right situation where he gets learners like steph curry the baby he he can show us that skill set that we see that look similar to staff but if he lands on a team where man he's gonna have to be counted on early and that's what you start to look and you say oh yeah i don't know if i feel that kind of impact that steph has had on his team and let's not forget it took steph a couple of years to become steph curry so i just feel like it's under pressure he can shoot the hell out of the ball i don't think there's any question like he has that kind of rains like stuff i i just kind of cautioned comparing him to stuff this quickly george sodano joining us from philadelphia where he's covering the nba draft inter a lot of red flags around mitchell rob a lot of very tantalizing physical skills from mitchell robinson which which wins out is he going to go in the first round i think he's going to be on.
