"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

Three Times Fed Cup winning captain as well and had a hugely successful music career. Once his tennis stays had come to an end I had the chance to meet him just over twenty years ago when he joined the champions tour. Tour retired players who just traveled to will played matches against one another him and John McEnroe and beyond bog, and all these greats of the game, and just got to know him a little bit at that time. He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe. Yep Absolutely. Our used to leave the group in Cameroon, Africa and We were I was playing detail club tennis was. Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day. When I heard that? Some Americans were coming to the club saw. Americans you know so. So Marty Riessen Charlie Pasarell, Tom, ochre, and Arthur Ashe where doing tour in Africa. And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris. I was playing Richmond Virginia where he was born. And that was the first tournament I one. Super Series and As I was you know going through the tournament semifinal quarterfinals? Semifinals Playing Roscoe Tanner and these gentlemen comes into locker room sold demand. It comes. It goes Yanic if you win. Arthur is coming tomorrow SEO really worrisome. Is Dad.

The great rise of television and more and more revenues from television because they can spread out the media content to a lot of different areas i. mean when you really think about the NCAA. Final!

That happened a sixteen year old. Kyle gears door. He goes by the nickname Boga but the recruiting process was a bit different gears. Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living. The teenage dream getting paid to play video games epic the company that makes fortnight. Isn't the only game in town. activision blizzard and take two interactive software have launched professional professional leagues around their games. Electronic Arts has a fee e World Cup a video game version of the soccer World Cup with thirty two players competing in multiple apple rounds until one country player comes out on top revenue from EA. Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or

C. L. that scale quickly changes things you can have better the normal vision of course if you have twenty ten version it means that you can see the same level of detail at twenty feet that someone with normal vision would be able to make out from ten feet away so they would have to be twice as close to the chart to see the same level of detail that you see so that would mean you have a more sheen eyesight than the average person I technically had that shortly after I had laser eye surgery my vision was somewhere around twenty fifteen to twenty twelve meaning that I could see better than the average person for these sort of I. charts but don't get too excited about it for one I site does tend to deteriorate over time so you're not guaranteed to have that amazing I cite the rest of your life my eye sight slowly deteriorates even after I've had the laser surgery also their animals that visual acuity that are closer to like twenty three so let's not get too excited by this visual acuity is just one element of vision by the way there are other considerations such as peripheral awareness or eye coordination or depth perception color vision and the ability to focus on points near or far from your eyes but the odds are definitely helped move things toward a standard in eighteen sixty four FC Donners who actually worked with Alan the guy who created the I. charts published anomalies of accommodation and refraction of the ice so in that work he laid out the principles that would become the basis for prescriptions let's take a quick moment to talk about the form prescriptions take and what that actually means now full prescription one that someone with that you know I site where they might need bifocals typically has four parts to it and I'm gonna use a hypothetical prescription in order to give an example so let's say that you've got a shorthand prescription written out for you and it reads like this two point two five minus one point five zero times one twenty seven plus two point zero zero now that is not a math problem those pluses and minuses give you indications for the power of the various lenses so let's take this piece by piece that first number two point two five that represents the bass strings or spherical strength and type of lens all lenses correct for myopia or hyperopia so near sightedness and far sightedness in our example the two point two five gives us this information it's two point two five diopters remember the units that tell us how much the lens bends light and because it lacks a negative sign it means it's a plus type of lens which means this is a prescription that is meant to correct for hyperopia or far sightedness the next number minus one point five zero refers to a cylindrical lands these lenses would look kind of like a a pipe cut lengthwise and they fit within the overall glasses or contact lens and they correct for astigmatism and the axis of the lens matches the abnormality of the cornea so that minus one point five zero tells us it's a minus lens at one point five diopters actually it's not quite that simple but I'll get to that in a little bit the third number one twenty seven is the orientation of that cylindrical lends it tells us the cylindrical lands is oriented at a hundred twenty seven degrees the fourth number two point zero zero is a bifocal segment at plus to diopters and it's always going to be positive for bifocals if you don't need bifocals you wouldn't have a number like this trailing at the end of your prescription what's more you might see the letters O. D. or S. on the prescription so what the heck did those mean well D. means oculus dexter and OS is oculus sinister that is Latin for right hi and left die so dexter and sinister mean right and left so if you happen to be lefthanded like me your of a sinister persuasion insert evil laugh here away yeah prescriptions can become more complicated than the example I gave you I should add there are other factors that could be included in the account for things such as correction for I. alignment problems and other such issues also eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens prescriptions are not always the same thing contact lens prescriptions need additional information such as what the curve of the back surface of the contact lens should be that's the part that touches your eye it also includes stuff like the diameter of the lens and because I glasses are worn in front of the eyes at a distance of around twelve millimeters from your eye and contact lenses are worn on the eyes the power of the prescription tends to be different to produce the ideal result in nineteen eighty the Federal Trade Commission ruled that all I doctors both optometrists an ophthalmologist must provide a copy of a patient's prescription upon the end of an eye exam that way the patient can choose the vendor here she prefers when buying the actual glasses now I'm wrapping up here there's a whole lot more I could talk about including the way you take lens blanks and grind them down in order to make the proper lens but that would almost require a second episode and before I sign off I think I should also explain what the differences between optometrist and ophthalmologist and also what our opticians so an ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic doctor someone who actually has a medical degree they have extensive training in medicine and they specialize in eye and vision care they have a license to practice medicine and surgery so they treat eye diseases and conditions they perform surgical procedures and they can also prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses they may also conduct research to gain further understanding in the eye disorders and diseases and there's some disagreement about whether or not an ophthalmologist or optometrist is the best person to go when you are trying to get glasses or contact lenses and the fights can get pretty nasty because they tend to involve ophthalmologist optometrist calling each other things so I'm not gonna get into that here but what is an optometrist well that's a healthcare professional but they are not a doctor not a medical doctor at any rate they must receive a doctor of optometry that's an O. D. degree but it's not a medical degree this is a four year degree from an optometry school and that's after they've conducted at least three years of college educations so they do all the doctorate but they are not a medical doctor their license to conduct I exams and prescribe glasses or contact lenses and they can also generally prescribed medications for certain types of eye diseases and then you have opticians now these our technicians that are trained to designed to verify and to fit eyeglass lenses and frames as well as contact lenses they do not make prescriptions themselves so they cannot prescribe the glasses but they can take a prescription and make the glasses or contact lenses or fit them to you they're allowed to do that they're not licensed to diagnose or treat eye diseases or disorders and there's also another we're difference between optometrist and ophthalmologist that discovered as I was researching this episode and that's how they write out prescriptions that second number I referenced that's the difference so remember our hypothetical prescription was two point two five minus one point five times one twenty seven plus two point zero zero well that minus one point five zero doesn't just tell us the lens power of the cylindrical lands that was meant to correct an astigmatism it also tells us that the person conducting that hypothetical eye exam had to be an optometrist because it was a negative value if it read one point five zero instead of minus one point five zero the actual a fact in the Finnish glasses would be exactly the same it would just mean that an ophthalmologist had written the prescription optometrist always have a negative value for cylindrical lands an ophthalmologist always have a positive value now this does change the value for that axis figure as well so there is also a slight other difference between an optometrist and ophthalmologist prescription but it really boils down to the fact that I'm Tom interest use negative cylindrical lands designation an ophthalmologist use positive cylindrical lens designation even though they both do the exact same thing so wacky right I learned something new today well guys that wraps up this overview of wear contact lenses came from and how we all got to the point of staring at these charts and also answering the immortal question better like this or better like this eight or be one or to man I'm so glad I don't have to do that anymore laser eye surgery rules if you guys have suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff please let me know you can write me my email address for the show is tax stuff at howstuffworks dot com or you can drop me a line on Facebook or Twitter the handle of both of those is tax stuff H. as W. follow our Instagram account you never know what crystals going to share we get to see a lot of cool behind the scenes stuff on that account so make sure you follow that and as always make sure you join me one of these days for a live recording I record on Wednesdays and Fridays and you can go to twitch dot TV slash tech stuff you'll see the schedule there.

"An honest genuinely talented student was rejected the parents charged today despite already being able to give their children every legitimate advantage in the college admissions game instead chose to corrupt and illegally manipulate the system for their benefit. We're not talking about donating a building. So that a school's more likely to take your son or daughter, we're talking about deception and fraud fake test scores fake, athletic credentials sake. Photographs bribed college officials. Wow. The biggest example of. Admissions fraud to some of the country's most elite colleges on pretty unbelievable. This is basically how this thing worked. It was. So you have this guy name, William Rick singer? And that by the way, was the attorney general Massachusetts his name is Andrew Lulling. And what happened is singer? Would would tell these parents, oh, I he helped these wealthy clients illegally boost the scores of their kids in in cheat on the ACT SAT's et cetera et cetera and burying ways and told the parents to seek quote extra time for the kids to take the SAT ACT tests, including by faking learning disabilities now, I know a little bit about this. Because I have my older sister has a school counselor. And there are real issues with kids that are that for example, if you have ADHD or ADD or something like that. They sometimes you can apply for more time to take the test because your ability to focus is not at the same level of. And it's a real thing for these kids. Okay. So he's telling them to lie about that. I guess to a doctor and once the kids get the extra time, then singer would tell the parents changed the exam location from the kids high schools where I guess they're known to one of the test centers that he knew controlled in either say West Hollywood or Houston as an excuse for changing location. He suggested saying the kids would be out of town attending a wedding or bar mitzvah, and then singer would bribe the administrated administrator, so he's picking specific test sites where I guess he had relationships with the administrators of the tasks and let a co-conspirator usually a Harvard. Grad student help the kids cheat on the exam. And then, you know, either he or others would take the test for the kids. In other words, either the Harvard grads. Would would take the test and put the or just give the kids the answers they needed or correct? The wrong answer after the kids turned in the test and the test center administrators then sent the exams back to the college board SAT and ACT for Fisher grading, which then raise scores significantly and schools listened. I'm I'm living through been living through this now for a long time. Because my you know, if you have a kid that's an eleventh grade like I do it's it's front and center, and everybody's minded and eleventh grade is like the hardest grade for kids all the time. And then, of course, the idea in the other case, Laurie Lachlan's case, you know, they actually took the daughter was not an athlete at all. And they photo shopped a picture of the daughter onto the body of an athlete and started posting it all over social media is if she was a crew player in the case that the the US attorney made or they do it with the soccer player. Linda is shaking her head the whole time. You think I've got this all wrong. I haven't even given my opinion. Yep. You'd think I have this all wrong. Why you know, I just I think it's a bunch of baloney. I really do. I mean, the the feigned indignant and the shock over this. Give me a break scraps been going on for years. We'll hang I'm saying, we know about legacy admissions. I mean, if your mother and father and mother or father and your grandfather, and your uncle all went to one school the advantage. You have is massive over any other applicant is called legacy admissions goes on all the time. Usually it is tied to how much money the family donated over the years. That's I mean, the endowments at these schools are sometimes in the billions and billions of dollars, right? Yeah. And well, then those kids because of their name their family. They have an advantage at the end of the day. Everybody gets an advantage that at the end of the day the day everybody's going to get over because of something. So I can throw a basketball. I can throw a football. I play the oboe. I I know how to do look cross. I I need more time on my test. Because I got I got ADD. I feel sad today. My dog died. My cat that neater food whatever the frigging reason is this is what these people do this is not worthy of our time. So you know, that I have been I'm Bob. My kids have been you know, athletes since they were seven years old. I mean, I've been all over the country in on my son's been all over the world it play in his sport. And I could. But let's just interrupt you for one moment your kids. Play tennis. What do? But that's fine. First of all you talk. About tennis all the time. This is not a surprise. Okay. Second of all when people play tennis one thing comes to mind money. How do I know this because I'm from Philadelphia, and they have the Arthur Ashe the Arthur Ashe center, and they used to take all us poor kids down to play tennis. So we could see how the other side lift learn a little bit of tennis yada, yada, yada. There's also, you know, I've actually donated the pretty good amount of money over the years. But that's not my point. My point is separate charities to actually make tennis available for everybody. Right. But just my point is is that that's there's nothing wrong with that. You know, if you have more money, and you can do more for your children. I'm not saying do criminal activity heads, but difference. Give money you're gonna let me talk you. But this is the difference. You're you're missing so much here. For example, my daughter is in eleventh grade, and my son was the same thing. Every single one of the kids, she grew up playing the sport with every one of them has been recruited. Not one wasn't. They all were recruited. They all got, you know, pick for their athletic ability. Now, if you add other sports to it. Yeah. Baseball basketball football. You know, first of all sports, enhance the university experience. If you go to the university of Alabama you go to Clemson you go to Notre Dame. Let me tell you something those sports not only financially enrich the institutions, but they make the experience of the other kids that are there because of academic merit so much better because they all love going to the games and cheering on their team. So here's. Here's the thing they lower. They don't lowered the admission standards academically for the athletes out. But there's a give and take to that. Do you know what I mean? No, I think it's a bunch of crap. Like, I said at the beginning of this argument. So when I went to school, right? I I I'm gonna masters degrees. You I have to. But I'm the first person in my family to go to college. My mother went to college Anthony. Now having said that I had to go at night. I had to work all day. I had a very different college experience and a lot of other people because financial background I paid my own way. And you totally get it the long and the short of it is we all try to do more for our children. Right. We don't want our kids to have the same struggles that we had yada yada, yada. So a lot of these kids who are very very good at sports that come from affluent families. They don't go to regular school. They have private tutors. They have private tennis instructors. They spend X amount of hours a day. Playing tennis X amount of hours a day, do a math history yada, yada. And listen if you can. Afford it. And you can do it more power to ya. I would do it for my kid to you know, you can't hate on people doing well. At least I don't the problem that I have is the son indignation like oh my God. I can't believe they paid for this is horrible. I'm like, dude. That is no different is a very big difference. Okay. Because let's take the case of the kids that on their own get the great as SAT score Mike made. Okay. So there is a zero sum game here. In other words, there is a certain number of slots available for kids that are academically hardworking, gifted, okay? Even then you wait a minute. So we'll hang on. Then. At least the playing field is more fair. If you take out the whole legacy admission part of it it cetera et cetera now on the athletic side. You know, if these there's only X number of slots for every sport in every school. So no, there's not here's why let me know you're wrong. You're wrong are only for example. You're only allowed x number of. Signings NCAA rules for any sport in anyway. So what they'll do is they'll bring in another kid, and they'll say, well, we'll take earlier we'll bench him for this year. He'll go into this. And then we'll bring him onto here. There's always a worker. Okay. But that would mean that year one less person that was deserving they get their spot taken away. And you know, what that's called that's called life. Life is not fair. Life is not fair and things are difficult. And at the end of the day, you have to know let me give you an example, if you're playing live you're playing baseball basketball tennis crew, which is I actually think I played the clarinet. Okay. And let me tell you how it works to become a recruited athlete. You know, you can go back to win your kids. These kids are are eight nine and ten years old and see that they've been playing the whole time. Whatever sport. It is anybody that looks at you throwing a baseball shooting a basketball player hitting a tennis ball. They're gonna know in five seconds. Whether you're a real player, let me sum this story is that you understand from where I come. Okay. Not understanding. I don't care how you wanna look at this at the end of the day. Which is where I started. That's my opening line. I'm going to finish with it. There are all sorts of inaccuracies and and discrepancies that come with applying to college. Now what these people did was wrong. I'm not saying what they did was. Right. So when we look at this, and we take and we take a close look at what's happening here. We also need to take a close look all the other inequities, and then we can have an honest and real conversation about the overpriced experience we call college. You don't see? Well, I actually think there's a bigger problem with the legacy issue. If you want my opinion on the only thing I can say in like, I said, I can say, and I have one good friend of mine who's son plays at UVA as we've been tennis acquaintances the entire time. We had sons the same age your daughter's the same age, they competed all throughout juniors and every time I see him. I hate the sport. I hate this. I would tell them because it's torture. Watching your kids play. Hate it. And he laughs at me all the time. And you know, it was kind of became just a long joke. It's I am the amount of effort time money everything. Traveling the goes into the years. You can't be a you have to decide if you want your kids to go unless there are so off the hook naturally talented. If you want them to go to college on some athletic scholarship, or or admissions, you have to start when you're seven or eight and focused pretty much now on one sport, everything is specialized, and you could have just saved money those years and put it into a five twenty nine college paid for college. Okay. But you're not gonna get into the college. Maybe that you want. That's the point. I don't know how much money you save the way it works is this that for us because of title nine there are more scholarships for women in sports because of title nine. Those scholarships are more available usually colleges for men's tennis have very few. Because in that case the scholarship so often deemed for the football team, which would be mostly males that are playing usually most schools have a male and female basketball program. So that's equal. But they gotta make up for it. Some way. The kids on a football. You're making my argument. Yes. You are you have to look at all of the inequities. So we can take a look at Laurie Laughlin and Felicity what's her name Hoffman? Whatever. I mean, the bottom line is these people are just two people of the fifty that they quote right now, but there's all sorts of discrepancies in inequities that have been going on for a very long time in this college debate, and they're going to keep on going. And this is just one example of the kind of nonsense that people do to get into a a liberal indoctrination that you have to work yourself out of after four years. And then if you decide to go to grad school, another two into after that, look, you don't look you're making some valid points. I mean, I'm not disagreeing with you something watching that college at the amount of effort and fraud that went into this. I mean to literally Photoshop a picture of your kid playing sport. They never played and then they get chosen and there are limited amounts of of slots available for those particular sports crew. And and soccer in this particular, case, volleyball, another particular case then. Then that does mean that someone else that maybe he was on the edge. The great thing is for all of these kids. And I I would advise us Danny parent. You know, it doesn't matter if you are ranked. You know, one through a hundred a, you know in your section all those hundred kids for the moment. At least the top sixty in every section is gonna get into a college a better college because of the whatever sport they're playing because I've seen it over and over again if you have a kid that's ranked in the top five in in your division, and as a nationally ranked player, then the odds are even better. But every year, they have tennis recruiting dot dot com. You can literally, you know, follow a kid's career, maybe he had a bad year. But that year that kid at an injury. But you say interesting as it is for us to try to save the world and all of the college problems we have to go to break. So.

"An honest genuinely talented student was rejected the parents charged today despite already being able to give their children every legitimate advantage in college admissions game instead chose to corrupt and illegally manipulate the system for their benefit. We're not talking about donating the building. So that a schools more likely to take? Your son or daughter we're talking about deception and fraud fake test scores fake athletic credentials, fake, photographs bribed college officials. Wow. The biggest example of admissions fraud to some of the country's most elite colleges on pretty unbelievable. This is basically how this thing worked. It was. So you have this guy named William Rick singer. And that by the way, was the attorney general Massachusetts his name is Andrew welling. And what happened is singer? Would would tell these parents. Oh, I he helped these wealthy clients legally boost the scores of their kids and cheat on the ACT SAT's et cetera et cetera in varying ways and told the parents to seek quote extra time for the kids to take the SAT ACT tests, including by faking learning disabilities now, I know a little bit about this. Because I have my older sister has is a school counselor and their religious with kids. That are that that for example, if you have ADHD or ADD or something like that. They sometimes you can apply for more time to take the test because your ability to focus is not at the same level of. And it's a real thing for these kids. Okay. So he's telling them to lie about that. I guess to a doctor and once the kids get the extra time, then singer would tell the parents change the exam location from the kids high schools where I guess they're known to one of the test centers that he knew controls in either say West Hollywood or Houston as an excuse for changing location. He suggests that saying the kids would be out of town attending a wedding or bar mitzvah, and then singer would bribe the administrative ministrations, so he's picking specific test sites where I guess he had relationships with the administrators of the tasks and let a co-conspirator usually a Harvard. Grad student help the kids cheat on the exam. And then, you know, either he or others would take the test for the kids. In other words, the Harvard grad student would take the test and put the or just give the kid. The answers they needed or correct? A wrong answer after the kids turned in the test and the test center administrators then sent the exams back to the college board SAT ACT for official grading which then raise scores significantly and schools listened. I'm I'm living through been living through this now for a long time. Because my you know, if you have a kid that's an eleventh grade like I do it's it's front and center in everybody's mind. Eleventh grade is like the hardest grade for kids all the time. And then of course, you know, the idea in the other case Laurie Lachlan's case, you know, they actually took the daughter was not an athlete at all. And they photo shopped a picture of the daughter onto the body of an athlete and started posting it all over social media is if she was a crew player in the case that the the US attorney made or they do it with the soccer player. Linda is shaking her head the whole time. You think I've got this all wrong. I haven't even him my opinion. Yep. You'd think I have this all wrong. Why you know, I just I think it's a bunch of baloney. I really do. I mean, the the feigned indignant and the shock over this. Give me a break scraps been going on for years.

Whatever to frigging reason is this is what these people do. This is not worthy of our time. So you know, that I I'm of my kids have been, you know, athletes since they were oh seven years old.

I mean, I've been all over the country and my son's been all over the world it play in his sport. And I say, let's just interrupt you for one moment your kids. Play tennis. What do people say? But that's fine. First of all you talk. About tennis all the time. This is not a surprise. Okay. Second of all when people play tennis one thing comes to mind money. How do I know this because I'm from Philadelphia, and they have the Arthur Ashe. The Arthur Ashe center, and they used to take all us poor kids down to play tennis. So we could see how the other side lift learn a little bit of tennis yada, yada, yada. So you know, I've actually donated a pretty good mount of money over the years. But that's not my point my point is to two separate charities to actually make tennis available for everybody. But just my point is is that that's there's nothing wrong with that. You know, if you have more money, and you can do more for your children. I'm not saying do criminal activity heads, but the difference. What is the difference? You're gonna let me talk you. But this is the difference. You you're missing so much here. For example, my daughter is in eleventh grade, and my son was the same thing. Every single one of the kids, she grew up playing the sport with every one of them has been recruited. Not one wasn't. They all were recruited. They all got, you know, pick for their athletic ability. Now, if you add other sports to it. Yeah. Baseball basketball football. You know, first of all sports, enhance the university experience. If you go to the university of Alabama you go to Clemson. You go to Notre Dame. Let me tell you something those sports not only financially enrich the institutions, but they make the experience of the other kids that are there because of academic merit so much better because they all love going to the games and cheering on their team. So here's here's the thing. They lower. They don't lowered the admission standards academically for the athletes how but there's a give and take to that. Do you know what I mean? No, I think it's a bunch of crap. Like, I said at the beginning of this argument. So when I went to school, right? I I'm not many masters degrees. You I have to. But I'm the first person in my family to go to college. My mother went to college Anthony. Now having said that I had to go at night. I had to work all day. I had a very different college experience and a lot of other people because financial background I paid my own way. Totally get it the long and the short of it is we all try to do more for our children. Right. We don't want our kids to have the same struggles that we had yada yada, yada. So a lot of these kids who are very very good at sports that come from affluent families. They don't go to regular school. They have private tutors. They have private tennis instructors. They spend X amount of hours a day. Playing tennis X amount of hours a day to math history yada, yada. And listen if you can afford it, and you can do it more power to ya. I would do it for my kid to you know, you can't hate on people doing well. At least I don't the problem that I have is the son indignation like oh my God. I can't believe they pay for this is horrible. I'm like, dude. That is no different is a very big difference. Okay. Because let's take the case of the kids that on their own get the great as SAT score Mike made. Okay. So there is a zero sum game here. In other words, there is a certain number of slots available for kids that are academically hardworking and gifted okay? Even then you don't wait a minute. So hang on. Then. At least the playing field is more fair. If you take out the whole legacy admission part of it, etc. Etc. Now on the athletic side. You know, if these there's only X number of slots for every sport in every school. So no, there's not here's why let me know you wrong wrong. There are only for example. You're only allowed x number of signings. NCAA rules for any sport. Anyway. So what they'll do is they'll bring in another kid, and they'll say, well, we'll take him earlier. We'll bench him for this year. He'll go into this. And then we'll bring him on here. There's always a worker. Okay. That would mean. Year one less person that was deserving. They get their spot taken away. And you know, what that's called that's called life. Life is not fair. Life is not fair and things are difficult. And at the end of the day, you have to know let me give you an example, if you plant live, you're playing baseball basketball tennis crew, which is I actually think I played the clarinet. Okay. And let me tell you how it works to become a recruited athlete. You know, you can go back to win your kids. These kids are are eight nine and ten years old and see that they've been playing the whole time. Whatever sport. It is anybody that looks at you throwing a baseball shooting a basketball player hitting a tennis ball. They're gonna know in five seconds. Whether you're a real player. Let me sum this story. Is that you understand from where I come, okay? I'm not understanding. I don't care how you wanna look at this at the end of the day, which is where I started. That's my opening line. I'm going to finish with it. There are all sorts of inaccuracies and and discrepancies that come with applying to college. Now what these people did was wrong. I'm not saying what they did was. Right. So when we look at this, and we take and we take a close look at what's happening here. We also need to take a close look at all the other inequities, and then we can have an honest and real conversation about the overpriced experience we call college. You don't see? Well, I actually think there's a bigger problem with the legacy issue. If you want my opinion on the only thing I can say in all the. The only thing I can say, and you know, I I have one good friend of mine who's son plays at UVA of you know, we we've been tennis acquaintances the entire time. We had sons the same age your daughter's the same age, they competed all throughout juniors and every time I see him. I hate the sport. I hate this. I will tell them because it's torture. Watching your kids play. I hate it. And you know, he laughs at me all the time. And you know, we were just you know, kind of became just a long joke. It's I am the amount of effort time money everything. Traveling the goes into the years. You can't be a you have to decide if you want your kids to go unless they're so off the hook naturally talented. If you want them to go to college on some athletic scholarship, or or admissions, you have to start when you're seven or eight and focused pretty much now on one sport, everything is special. Sized and where you could have just saved on your money those years and put it into a five twenty nine college flying paid for college. Okay. But you're not gonna get into the college. Maybe that you want. That's I don't know how much money are you saving the way. It works is this that you for you know, because title nine there are more scholarships for women in sports because of title nine those scholarships are more available usually colleges for men's tennis have very few because in that case, the scholarship so often deem for the football team, which would be mostly males put that are playing usually most schools have a male and female basketball program. So that's equal. But they gotta make up for it. Some way. Kids on a football. You're making my argument. Yes, you are. You have to look at all of the inequities. So we can take a look at Laurie Laughlin and Felicity what's her name Hoffman? Whatever. I mean, the bottom line is these two people are just two people of the fifty that they quote right now, but there's all sorts of discrepancies in inequities that have been going on for a very long time in this college debate, and they're going to keep on going. And this is just one example of the kind of nonsense that people do to get into a a a liberal indoctrination that you have to work yourself out of after four years. And then if you decide to go to grad school number two into after that, the you don't look you're making some valid points. I mean, I'm not disagreeing with you something hot in that college the amount of effort and fraud that went into this. I mean to literally Photoshop a picture of your kid playing a sport. They never played and then they get chosen and there are limited amounts of of slots available for those particular sports crew. And and soccer in this particular. Oh, volleyball in another particular case. Then that does mean that someone else that maybe he was on the edge..

"arthur ashe" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"An honest genuinely talented student was rejected the parents charged today despite already being able to give their children every legitimate advantage in college admissions game instead chose to corrupt an legally manipulate the system for their benefit. We're not talking about donating. A building. So that a school's more likely to take your son or daughter, we're talking about deception and fraud fake test scores fake athletic credentials, fake, photographs bribed college officials. Wow. The biggest example of admissions fraud to some of the country's most elite colleges on pretty unbelie. This is basically how this thing worked. It was. So you have this guy named William Rick singer. And that by the way was the attorney general Massachusetts. His name is Andrew Lulling. And what happened is singer? Would would tell these parents. I he helped these wealthy clients illegally boost the scores of their kids in in cheat on the ACT SAT's etcetera etcetera in varying ways and told the parents to seek quote extra time for the kids to take the SAT ACT tests, including by faking learning disabilities now, I know a little bit about this. Because I have my older sister has is a school counselor. And there are real issues with kids that are that for example, if you have ADHD or ADD or something like that. They sometimes you can apply for more time to take the test because your ability to focus is not at the same level of. And it's a real thing for these kids. Okay. So he's telling them to lie about that. I guess to a doctor and once the kids get the extra time, then singer would tell the parents change the exam location from the kids high schools where I guess they're known to one of the test centers that he knew controls in either say West Hollywood or Houston as an excuse for changing location. He suggested saying the kids would be out of town attending a wedding or bar mitzvah, and then singer would bribe the administrator administrator, so he's picking specific test sites where I guess he had relationships with the administrators of the tasks and let a co-conspirator usually a Harvard. Grad student help the kids cheat on the exam. And then, you know, either he or others would take the test for the kids. In other words, either the Harvard grads. I would take the test and put the or just give the kids the answers they needed or correct? A wrong answer after the kids turned in the test and the test center administrators then sent the exams back to the college board SAT and ACT for official grading which then raise scores significantly and schools listened. I'm I'm living through been living through this now for a long time. Because my you know, if you have a kid that's an eleventh grade like I do it's it's front and center in everybody's mind. Eleventh grade is like the hardest grade for kids all the time. And then of course, you know, the idea in the other case Laurie Lachlan's case, you know, they actually took the daughter was not an athlete at all. And they photo shopped a picture of the daughter onto the body of an athlete and started posting all over social media is if she was a crew player in the case that the the US attorney made or they do it with the soccer player. Linda is shaking her head the whole time. You think I got this all wrong? I haven't even give my opinion. Yep. You'd think I have this all wrong. Why you know, I just I think it's a bunch of baloney. I really do. I mean, the the feigned indignant and the shock over this. Give me a break scraps been going on for years. We'll hang on and say, we know about legacy admissions. I mean, if your mother and father and mother or father and your grandfather, and your uncle all went to one school the advantage. You have is massive over any other applicant is called legacy admissions goes on all the time. Usually it is tied to how much money the family donated over the years. That's I mean, the endowments at these schools are sometimes in the billions and billions of dollars, right? Yeah. Well, then those kids because of their name their family. They have an advantage at the end of the day. Everybody gets an advantage at the end of the day the day everybody's going to get over because of something. So I can throw a basketball. I can throw a football. I can play the oboe. I I know how to do lacrosse. I I need more time on my test. Because I got I got ADD. I feel sad today. My dog died. My cat that need her food. Whatever to frigging reason is this is what these people do. This is not worthy of our time. So you know, that I have my kids have been, you know, athletes since they were seven years old.

You know, if you have more money, and you can do more for your children. I'm not saying do criminal activity foreheads difference. Differences money gonna let me talk. But this is the difference.
