"Prime would be the wrong word he was he was given an and more of an outside chance to win but the prevailing view that Labor Rod. Labor. Won Wimbledon Ken Rosewall. John Newcombe. Who was the WHO had won the last amateur van and sixty seven lot of these guys were th the Australians especially when they were the heavy favorites and Arthur they had a great summer and I'd been in the semi finals of Wimbledon was giving a a reasonable chance, but it didn't look that good because. He was going to have to play Labor. the top seed. You know it just worked out number one versus five in the quarter-finals there were slated to play, but then cliff drysdale. Who would come out of South Africa is now a renowned commentator living in the United States and great two handed back in cliff upset Labor in five sets and that opened up everything for ash because he loved playing Drysdale. That matchup was far more favorable to him than than playing the left-handed Labor, and then he went on to beat his Davis Cup team-mate Clark grader in the semi he beat Tom Aqua The Netherlands in the final art there was still an amateur at that time. So he couldn't take the prize money some some nice people with. What he did try to send him some money later on, they wanted him to have the money, but he couldn't take the way the money, but it hardly mattered in a way because what he had done to ignite American tennis by winning the first. US Open against the odds. And probably against his own expectations was was just spectacular. Yeah just an an absolutely dropping spectacular moment. In Tennessee history, I, obviously. Not even. David Law was born at that time, right? But I. I do get the feeling that it was a moment that was seen as such at the time. It's not something I mean obviously it's grown in significance overtime as well as as Arthur became even more significant not just as a tennis player but is an activist and all of that and everything came come after is enhanced it but I, get the impression Matt that this was a world stops turning jaws drop. Everybody pays attention moment at the time in one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, eight. Yes I really think so and I think it was also enhanced by the fact that Ash beat as Steve linked set their clock grabner in the semifinals and that became. The story of that match became a book called levels of the game written by John mcphee, which is. which is seen as one of the sort of great feats of journalism. Really of sports journalism because I was reading the Joe mcphee sat down for hours with both Clark and our thrash both incidentally great blouses whereas it was a, it was a match of both players wearing glasses and he sat down with them both and sort of went over the match with them and got their thoughts and he just presented this incredible profile of that matches. As contrast really and it became very well known avai significant. An author ash became became very big as well and I love the enthusiasm in Steph links voice there when he talks about. Because, he's obviously a very passionate tennis man stifling, but he's he's interested in the numbers, the statistics and the records, but to kind of, Hey, him get quite emotional talking about our thrash I found was really quite touching and probably an indicator just how significant ashes rise was and how transformative it was for people watching him I watched some of the footage of that final before we started recording just. To try to get a feel for it and and that's what I think. You're describing in a way as you say, Steve Was Greg Putting things into perspective in terms of the significance, the statistical significance of various records and achievements. But as you say, there's more to him than that and when you watch shark thrash, you can understand why he gets people why people end being drawn to watch him because. You don't know what's coming next when in that final, you're watching some of the shotmaking and the is the thoughts Aussie emanating from him to his rackets and the things he's able to do. He's he was a spectacular sight I didn't realize quite honestly how Imaginatively tennis player was and what A. Dynamic player he was. Very. Athletic Powerful. And you know I'm coming I'm coming to get you with my game and it's It was fantastic to watch. He he put together a seventy two and ten win loss record for that year in nineteen, sixty eight, and he hoped the USA to to win the Davis Cup. As. Well, and of course, as we've heard he, he had to maintain his amateur status in order to to maintain his selection for for the Davis Cup and he went on to win subsequent Grand Slams. He won the Australian Open in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy. So bit of gap before he won his his next one and three beat decreed in the final there, and then there is a gap before he wins his next one and that comes at Wimbledon in nineteen, seventy, five and we're going to hear now from Amman. The say contributed to our Alpha Gibson put cost of course, Richard Evans who he of course recalls the one, thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight USA win. But even more than.

"Yeah He. And he lost in straight sets, but it was interesting because I think he knew that that was what he wanted to do. He was obviously training hard for it, but he didn't know that it would bring about any kind of financial or professional security or employment because as you said, tennis tennis wasn't open yet. So he wasn't sure that he was going to even be able to make a living out of tennis at. That stage and yet he was still as you said, studying college going around playing Grand Slam tournaments a completely different world. It's quite difficult to kind of get your head around the sort of balancing act that would have to go on when that was happening, but it was it was normal the time and he and he was doing it and Charlie Pasarell, who is his close friend that Ucla was also doing it and It's kind of extraordinary to think now. Have, been the coolest guy at college. I'm just off to play the French Open back into weeks well, if I D well back in two weeks. Yeah, extraordinary had no I had. No I did. That I was I was aware that he was the the first man to win the US Open in the opener but I had no idea he'd been. Toiling, away on the tour amateur still say Juggling College studies with all for for many many years before that. He became the first black player ever selected for the US. Davis Cup team in that was in nineteen sixty three's that was five years before before he won his first Grand Slam and that was the the US Open in nineteen, sixty eight the very first ever open-air winner. If the US Open and of course, when he won that tournament in order to maintain that Davis. Cup Eligibility. Anti time away from from G. T., to to play the most significant tournaments author which required to maintain his amateur status. I'm because of that, he couldn't accept the fourteen thousand dollars if prize money for winning the US Open and that prize money was instead given to to Tomioka the man he beat in the final while while Oth- receive just twenty dollars a day expenses. For his win. It's extraordinaire isn't it to think about that? Now when you consider they're getting three million dollars, whatever it is to to win the US Open did you think he had to submit receipts? Expenses. Subway tickets. At least Lisa thrash went on and straddled those areas, and again, we brings you back to one to to listen to those healthier Gibson stories. Again of of how that was her life that was her tennis experience of just not being able to any money. Let's. Let's hear a little bit more about that USA pin win in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, and let's hear it from. From one of Tennessee's great historian Steve flink that that Ma, his has been talking to. and. For FESTIVA author thrash with incredibly instrumental to him at a very important time in his life. Be inspired me a lot. I mean again I, I started watching the mid sixties. Arthur was arthur was starting to peak. I think the I sorta major step toward his peak was nineteen, sixty five and that was the year that I was. I had seen my first Wimbledon and my first US championships. The summer of sixty five as I was. Twelve turning thirteen and. Arthur, made this great run to the semifinals up at four stills and I watched him beat Roy Emerson which is a big win and. It was he was so exhilarating to watch. He was the the his game was so dynamic and and so He was very adventure. Semi was his spectacular shotmaker with this Wonderful backhand. He could do anything he wanted his back inside and hit the most flamboyant winters he had. He had a great serve, which again was the anchor of his game, and so you you didn't always know what was coming. They were streaky patches. This combination of this explosive game that he had? And then the STOIC personality I found it kind of irresistible I love the fact that he was so cool. So composed and yet. Spoke so loudly with his racket expressed himself. So beautifully with his racket where the types of shots the attempted to hit. So yes, I mean that was a big deal for me personally, because sixty five was my baptism with the game you might say, and that was when that sort of led me toward the career I was going to have. became so immersed in it, and that was the year that I started falling at the with sort of religious fervor and he he played a major role in that I was inspired by watching Emerson Win Wimbledon that year but I think Arthur was particularly inspirational figure and he remained so in the years to come and I would later get to know him pretty well also but That summer sixty five no doubt. He played a pivotal role for me. And how did the crowds react to him when he was playing? Was it similar similarly inspired as you do you think? Yeah I I. Think the clouds loved him I think the clouds loved them. Again there was there was this sort of a mystery of what was going to happen next because you know he wasn't afraid to fail in the sense that he would go for it. He would he would Sometimes try shots that were against the you know weren't necessarily percentage shots. Layers career became a little more percentage oriented by the early to mid seventies but. He he was just so daring. He was so audacious with what he was trying to do on the court. and. So the galleries they did respond to that end because he comported himself so beautifully. the crowds especially, the American crowds were wholeheartedly with them. They loved archer. And he won the first US Open, the Open era. What are your memories? Yes he did. That was so memorable that first US Open of sixty eight because there was, he was seated fifty was considered a prime candidate for he was considered..

"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.

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.

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. We'll hang up and say, we do, you 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 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 today. 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 lacrosse. I I need more time on my test. Because I got I got ADD. I feel sad today. My dog died. My cat didn't eat 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 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 it on 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? 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 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 amount of money over the years. But that's not my point. My point is to 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 the difference. Money. 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, yet 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 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 master's degrees. I have to. But I'm the first person in my family to go to college. My mother went to college. I have to me. 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, do a math history yada, yada. And listen if you can afford it, and you can do it more power TI. I 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. 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. Hang on. Then. At least the playing field is more fair. If you take out the whole legacy admission part of it at 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 wrong wrong. There are only for example. You're only allowed x number of signings. NCAA rules for any sport. And 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 a Monte here. There's always a worker. Okay. I'm just telling you 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 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.

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. I've been all over the country and all my son's been all over the world it play in his sport. And I could say, let's just interrupt you for one moment your kids, play tennis. What do people say that? 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 those 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 a 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. 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 foreheads difference. Differences money gonna let me talk. 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 lowered 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. Totally get it. 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 do 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 difference. Okay. Because let's take the case of the kids that on their own get the great 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 at 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. There are only for example. You're only allowed x number of signings. NCAA rules for any sport in any 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 a Monte here. There's always a worker. 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 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. 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, it on the only thing I can say in all the whole on the only thing I can say, and I have one good friend of mine who's son plays at UVA. We've been tennis acquaintances the entire time. We had sons the same age with daughters 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 kids play hate it. And he laughs at me all the time. And we were just 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 where you could just all your money those years and put it into a five twenty nine college finding paid for college. Okay. But you're not to get. Get into the college. Maybe that you want. That's the point..

"From aids at the age of forty nine and he's the subject of a new biography. By professor Raymond Arsenault historian, especially of the south and civil rights movement. Professor Arsenault joins us. Now thank you for being with us professor both my pleasure. Thanks for having me. I I just like to ask you this is a massive achievement and a massive biography. It is one of those doorstop biographies about seven hundred and fifty pages or more including the notes in the context of the work you've been doing for the last half century. On the civil rights movement on the second half of the twentieth century in the south, in particular, we're does Arthur Ashe fit into your body of work. Well, I see. I see the book as the third book and a trilogy of what really drove through it me too originally was that I thought it was a civil rights study that had been largely ignored by by historians. That's often the case with the sort of the cultural side of civil rights were much more attuned to the politics of the movement. But think cultural figures had an enormous impact on changing patterns of race and race relations. I think Arthur Ashe's may perhaps the classic example of that. So I did a book on the freedom riders. Nineteen sixty one which took me almost as long as the expert on almost nine years. And that was the first book on the freedom riders. And then I did a book on Marian Anderson the great black contralto classical singer who was turned away from constitution hall in nineteen thirty nine by the daughters of the American revolution because she was black and she ended up the only place she was allowed to sing was at the Lincoln Memorial and it became a great cultural moment. She was sort of the Jackie Robinson of classical music, and so I was looking, I was looking for another sort of lost story, try to recapture it. And I'd always had a fascination with Arthur Asha. My best friend in graduate school was actually look very much like Arthur was same heightened way born the same year. He was my tennis partner. He name was Jim Horton is story in George Washington University who who died two years ago, GM sort of introduced me to the cultivation. All all the other graduate students at Brandeis where we were studying and and we even talked about doing a book together at one point. But sadly, he, he, he died two years ago, but I- I persevered, I'm not sure he thought I would ever finish it and Sally. He didn't live to see it, but I'm glad that I did persevere. 'cause I, the deeper, I got into the project. The more I was convinced that are thrash was truly one of the great Americans of the twentieth century that it's it's more than a short a sports story. He really like Ali, of course, transcended sports in so many ways. We sneaking with Raymond Arsenault about his new book Arthur, ash a life. And when you say that he is one of the great American's we've produced what leads you to say that guy who most people think of, as you know, a tennis player, a great tennis player, a pioneering tennis players, the first African American male to win a major tournament. But there has to be obviously. Much more to it than that. I think there is. I found him to be very complex figure, you know, on the outside, he was cool and calm and always civil and paragon of sportsmanship. And he always seemed to say the right thing and do the right thing. But inside he was very turbulent and he was very driven at least from nineteen sixty eight on. He became politicized that year partially out of the assassinations of Dr king and Bobby Kennedy, but also dealing with the changing nature of American race relations. He'd like a like a lot of young athletes. He'd been pretty self absorbed and he was particularly vulnerable and didn't feel he could really speak out or take any risks. He was the only black in the game of tennis, and he didn't want to ruin it for future black players by acting out or doing anything, anything wrong..

"What about night games in the lighting stadium, leading the challenges, anything that easier? It's easier now it used to be before digital. Nobody would shoot the night matches unless it was a huge match. You might have an Agassi Sampras match and used to. Well, of course, we're going to shoot that we don't care what the light is, you know, but even then, I mean, again, you've gotta shoot fast shutter speeds. You'd have to get. I mean, but the the standard was he would shoot Fuji press eight hundred push to stops and it looked not good. You know, like eight hundred speed film. And you know, but that's the best you can do now. I mean, the cameras are are so good and the lights are better. So that combination. I mean, I'm still kind of pushing the limited the camera, but I can go out there and shoot it ISO sixteen hundred. You know what the good camera like the defy and in get crisp images that look good on a glossy color page and the program and still get a decent shutter speed. The lights are better. What? What kind of lights are they? Are you dealing with color Castelo switching, tally diesel or anything, frankly, ever to imaging. I haven't heard anything about the the lightning changing. I will say that the the tricky thing with the light at Arthur Ashe stadium is that for some reason, you can't see it to the naked eye, but the corners are darker. So as a photographer, you see, because all of a sudden this photo looks half stop dark. But as a fan, I would be surprised if any fan noticed it. The question about the. I guess the editorial side of it when when you want to go and get a photo published, do they look for? Let's say Serena makes a great, you know, winning shot and but you have a great shot of her from earlier in the match. Do they care that that that you didn't get the winning shot? Because I know in other sports, you may have a great shot of somebody doing somebody from earlier in the game, but if it's not the, you know, the news worthy moment of it that photos not going to get published that played on tennis the same way. It depends on the client bit, depends on the media outlet, what they're they're looking for. Sports Illustrated might be very interested in that winning shot the the people I shoot for science on shoot a lot for the US TA in for the US Open program and does a book company. I do a lot of work for now world tennis magazine. Some websites they're more interested in having a pretty photo they wanna photo over the player looks good, especially the US open because this is the premier event, and this is the showcase of every. Thing they do. So they want the player to look good. And one of the interesting parts of that is they have to look fundamentally sound.
