The Origin of the Elgin Marbles
"Greece in the early part of the nineteenth century wasn't yet an independent country. It had been under the rule of the ottoman empire since the mid fifteenth century and this was the geopolitical situation in athens in eighteen. O one thomas. Bruce seventh earl of elegant was appointed as the ambassador extraordinary and minister. Plenipotentiary of his britannic majesty to the sublime port of selma third sultan of turkey prior to arriving in the ottoman empire. He asked the british government if they were interested in. Hiring artists can make drawings and take plaster casts of the sculptures at the parthenon. The british government was in no way interested. However even if the government wasn't interested. Thomas bruce still was so using his own funds. He hired a team of artists to document. The artwork found at the parthenon so far all of his plans for documenting. What was at the parthenon. We're perfectly fine. If he had just stuck to this. I probably be doing an episode today about something else. however he didn't didn't just stick to documenting the artwork. He soon began removing whatever sculptures that he could in total he took twenty one full statues fifteen meta panels which are carver. Tabular architectural pieces and a full seventy five meters of the parthenon frieze which decorated the upper interior of the parthenon. All of this marble sculpture was sent them all. To and then to england they became known as the elgin marbles named after the earl of elegant and because they were all made out of marble they are also known as the parthenon marbles. This was all done at the personal expense of the earl. At a cost of seventy four thousand two hundred and forty pounds or what today would be worth five million pounds or about six point eight million dollars.

How many defenders are in. That area is a real key to call in those place. Yeah it is and that that's what we look at. We were more call. Plays guys in the press pot. We're looking at box. And and if we're out mass in the box and we all know not say you can't run but we feel like we got events in the passing game and if it's a top football when you said it there a four one five on five you have five offensive line five offensive. Linemen got five of our guys on five of their guys. Hopefully running backs going to be able to pick a spot get through and they. Now you've got somebody like jacobus big back on one of their smaller. Db's and that's going to be a win ninety percent of the time for the hornets again. That's stugotz brownsboro. You saw while he was averaging almost seven yards of kerry because number one we block in their five and then what he's making contact with one of their secondary players usually. That's going to give you two or three more yards shirt. He's going to bounce off that he's going to fall forward because he's a very physical back. Yeah okay so let's move on one of the things that we talk about every week. I know these. You have some keys to the game that you talk about with your players. What are the keys for this week. Well this we number one. The word of the week is one percent so we talked obama. Challenge them about everybody's saying they've saying that graphic you know and talking to the difference about being one percent better everyday versus being one percent worse and really you know that's very minor if you think about what does that mean if you're one percent worse that's not that's not that much worse really in one day but if you if once you add that up and i think probably knows people have seen that graphic that yearly graphic of that graph where you're one percent better for three hundred sixty five days versus one percent worse where you end up so. He talked to our kids about that about this season about this week. Because the key is we can't take the brownsboro game. Think yeah you know and again thanks employees but we. We can't take say. Yeah we've arrived. We can't we can't rely. We gotta continue to find ways to get better this week if we want to accomplish what we plan to accomplish in this district because everybody knows i'll be i the detained by once we get to district in week five. The competition level is fixing the. Go up it's a little bit more difficult than are not dishes schedule and so we continue to improve then. Were not going to accomplish what we to accomplish. And so anyway. That's why war at least one percent also today number one just playing off that it'd be better at the small things of what your position is supposed to find a way.

"Kids in general play on both sides of football so we challenged our kids to try to wear down. Because we don't we at this point we don't have just a ton of his plan. Both sides of the ball so we need to use that as our strength. And that's that's a real luxury to not something that you've had very often here in athens no again. It speaks to our kids. We we have a lot more weed. Bill have more overall talented roster and so we as a culture staff. If we have kids with. I believe that the more kids you can get on the field and the more kids that you can have starters. Then that's better for you program because those kids are spanned. Happy they're staying involved and everybody has to play a role and so you know. We talked early in the year. If we would like to try to avoid buying as many kids on both ways possible now and make into district may have played a few more but especially early on getting as many kids. Game experience with possibly. Can't thanks brilliant important. And it's always good down the line to all right.

Multiple formation all of based adverse shotgun spread are going to have two bags in the backfield quite a bit. But yeah we're going to have challenger linebackers backers and decent. So i do great job against iran and you know we're kind of at a size disadvantage against them. They're bigger than their office. Lives bigger archdeacon salon. So we're we're going to have to use their speed authority kazakh. Play the whale against brownsboro. So we're going continue to do that this week. So in the shotgun formation where you see a lot of running taxis as a lot of them are keyed to run pass options. Things like that as a quarterback. Is that what we're going to see out of the mustangs don't a little bit of that Yeah they will but they run a lost. A lot of common midland stuff out of the shotgun attack with the to back.

"Good morning fans. Michael madigan media. I am in the office of athens. Head football coach that harrow. How you doing today coach michael. Thanks for coming all right. So we are. In between the first scrimmage. And the second scrimmage which is a really interesting place to be in the life of the season because you know a little more now than it did but you still have time to adjust some things before they come so the first thing i want to ask you and i spoke. Immediately after the scrimmage and for those of you dane check it out. We put up an interview with the coach. Right after the scrimmage but after you've now had a chance to look at the phil. From last week scrimmage what did you think the first thing that stood out it kind of confirmed what i thought right after scrimmage is just how far long especially on the deep. It's out of the ball. We are From years past. And that's due to a couple of factors that's due to like. We talked about a few weeks ago. Having the same defense. Coaching staff one hundred percent. We had last year or kids. Know what we back and have a better understanding the scheme and it's also to be quite also with you a product of having. We've bill the best athletes we've had over all town and so i thought our kids on defense played really hard flu around us. Form the football We've played our ones played really well. We gave up to pat too. big pass. Plays if you take that out. They had a really hard time moving the ball and they didn't run the ball very well and so you know just some guys that stood out defensively first off where you know jim. Maury manny and jackson styles outside linebackers. Both sophomores and i bet they combined for over twenty tackles and tomorrow many had close to fifteen and that's that's huge for defense When those guys can be so involved because those gaza run past players so they have to you know they have to read. Run pass bars And they were they were down. He'll and the run game and just very aggressive. And so that that was great to see real excited about those guys. Hotter white at defensive. Tackle had an excellent scrimmage again. Another sophomore was very physical and again he just play than they did last year mainly to. He's he's gained a ton of strength and had a great offseason. So those guys cost to that but just our deepens unit as a whole was was really pleased so excited to see where that group may go and so you know we talk after scrubbing tribute was very even on.

A Musical Message Discovered in Plato's Works
"Plato's complete works seemed to have done the unthinkable by surviving all the way to the present which is why it strange that after all this time it was only about ten years ago that something new was discovered within them. Looking over the oldest manuscripts we have medieval documents carefully copied out by scribes working with ink and belem researchers have found a pattern a code hidden in the text to understand it. You need to know that. Ancient greek music used a scale of twelve notes as opposed to our modern scale of eight and what researchers have discovered is. That plato's text is practically littered with patterns of twelve. In fact perhaps to drive the point home. Every twelfth line contains a reference to music. It seems that plato had something to hide. Why well it comes down to religion you see in his day. The greek pantheon ruled life. God's like zeus were worshipped by all in central to how they viewed the world around them but a mathematician named pythagoras had threatened all of that because he believed that true building blocks of the universe were numbers and music for a very long time. Students of pythagorean thought were persecuted sometimes being forced into exile and plato wanted to declare his allegiance to this new philosophy without shouting out loud in the forum so he hid it from the religious authorities who felt threatened. It seems that music has always been a controversial topic from the halls of athens to the rock and roll hall of fame. Music has been seen by some as an art and by others as a threat but few arguments have lasted as long as one in particular acclaim that has been used for centuries to strike fear in the hearts of good people to hold back progress in a field that has given us so much beauty. Some music it seems belongs to the devil.
What Is Western Civilization and Is It Better Than Other Civilization Projects?
"Us through first of all what is western civilization. Thank you charlie. Thanks turning point for having me ny. I'd be remiss if i didn't also thanked charlie to being a newsweek columnist. So thank you for that and yeah great to be here. You know got dinner last night. We were joking about how we can possibly talk about how to save the west thirty minutes. So let's kind of dive writer and get right to the point here. So leo strauss famously defined western civilization kind of the ever existing tension between jerusalem anathemas between the bible and between kind of greco. Roman reason if you will. I think that's a good place to start a research fellow at the edmund burke foundation. Which is your arm zones. think tank. It's a home for kind of national conservatism. And we think of the nation state. The nation state is being directly derived from the hebrew. Bible actually the tribes of israel themselves going to be the original the og nation state. If will so. I think just recovering a sense of biblical identity and the importance of the nation state. In contrast to globalism in contrast to all sorts of utopian global ideals is a good place to start so it starts with the bible truths jerusalem athens and then obviously rome as well. Which is you. Don't more my good friends territory. Of course there's a lot there and so so rob. You have an interesting perspective on this. So can you tell us what does what makes the west difference. Why is this worth preserving and dare we say is the west better than other civilization projects currently or previously. So i would define the west. An not too dissimilar from josh shared as the combination of greek philosophy roman law and judeo christian religion and What's what's special about that combination. Is this view that a man and woman are at home in the world that there is that using reason we can understand the world and because we are part of a whole that is legible whole that can be discovered using reason we can also understand what it means to be happy as a human

They're very the coast. Partisans been there for a long time very established program they fade. They're very physical. They always play very physical brand of football And so it's going to be a great test force to go get somebody else. In our approach. To scrimmage bobby a little bit different than others you know. We approached the scrimmage. Yes we want to have success. And we wouldn't have to pee but we don't. We don't believe in winning scrimmage or or we don't believe in whose scores most us down wins. Because you know we're trying to see it's roy an evaluation process for us and we're trying to see who when you go get somebody else can play at a high level and put that switch and so you know there may be some more established players like john. Hayes john hayden is probably going to play. Very limited. Rips and the scrimmage but because we know what john hayes can do and so but we need to see what other guys that haven't been in. The fight can do and john as the starting left tackle played every now last year. Yeah so so. You know our quarterback when we don't we tie tie will not get hit by coughing. Line in the scrimmage. I i was by my neck or around my neck and somebody close. We both was because again. We're not. We're not scrimmage To get players heart scrimmage to say who can play at a high level and that and that said to one of the things when it ties biggest asset is his feet dry. We're told him that he is not supposed to be like taken off. Yeah sure we will call any quarterback run game right if he pulls the ball on his own which we still wanting to Once he runs and he gets close to the other jersey will blow it.

The Sacred Band of Thebes
"As minor way often discuss houses before we actually start telling you about the thing. We're talking about the infamous. Lit review lit review. Every costs needs one episode. In this instance. Actually not really gonna talk much about us is at the start of the episode. I used a lot of like little sources for all of the different sections so will discuss them as they come up and talk about. What's wrong with them with one exception. being i wanted to talk a little bit about a book called the sacred band by james rome. This book is. I'm fairly confident. In saying the newest scholarship that exists on the sacred band because it came out in early june of this year and we decided to do an episode on the sacred band because the publisher of the book reached out to us at austin advanced review copy. Thank you for that. I must pay for that copy and talking about as the title suggests james rum's the sacred band is about the sacred band of thieves which you'll hear an awful lot about a minute. I'm genuinely very interested to hear about the benefits. I literally but the book also more widely explores the political and social and military context of the roughly four decades in which the band exist in unusually for us. You have also read this book. Alice what did you think of it as someone who didn't then go raid ten other books about the area. I feel like michael two little cloudy. So how did you feel about it as a ruin peasant To a great person. So i deny much background about the second band of thieves or ancient greece. I'm not going into the person who knows nothing. Because i have studied disappeared. But i definitely wasn't being like i. I know this. I wanted to give you an idea of how i went into this book so probably like about where most people pick up. The book would be like if you're interested enough to pick up the bulk. You probably have a vague idea of that was athens. They were at Thieves was also he unite. That's the general context. Obviously a will give you a good version of that later in the episode crest. Where is the do you know what happens. Yes it's north of that Grace it's it's grace. It's quite central to grace. And it's like roughly to the north of athens quite close to athens within like a day's ride will a couple of days walk all right so even like quite course Travel yes this will come Will between these.
Betting Summer Hoops
"Now to welcome in a somewhat regular guest here on the behind the podcast. A friend of mine. Brian win horse. Who is also in las vegas and we have yet to connect though brian how are you. I'm getting up at like five thirty on some of these days and teeing off by seven to try to finish before gets it gets ridiculous but i'm really enjoying it to be beat the heat. It is pretty ridiculous. I mean. I know it's hot in the summer but it's gotten out of hand a couple of times one seventeen the other day Tell you what. I bet you saw. Popovich getting up at five thirty losing some sleep perhaps because team. Usa not looking good right now and we know these sort of narrative with the international play is that they're more if more continuity usa is going to get everyone's best shot but this is this is really unexpected here. Oh and two out of the gates. There's another game coming up tonight. Eighteen and a half their lane to argentina. I liked them in the first half minus ten and a half but just in general is their level of concern here for a team. That's minus four hundred win the gold. Yeah by the way one of the things about tonight's game. I don't know how who's going to play for the us. They don't have a huge selection of wires only got nine of their Of their national team players because middleton holiday inn booker are in the final so they they've got some some other young guys there but it's considering it's back to back and not only. Is it back to back but yesterday's game was a five o'clock start and this today's game three o'clock local. I'm not sure what you're going to see from the us that game but argentina's in the same boat and Their in two so far so You know. I think there's two ways to look at this on one hand The teams that. They're playing her so much more talented than the teams that they were playing. Even five to seven years ago You know i. I mean i made a deal of this to you. Know they beat. Nigeria nine years ago when olympics by eighty three and five years ago by forty three but the team. They beat five years ago. Didn't have seven. Nba players on right and not only that but one of their best players Okafor jalil okafor didn't even play against the americans. He came back and played against the argentinians. On tuesday and fifteen points so they didn't even face a full scale nigeria teams. You can believe that it's not comparable but the other side of that is. The us team is loaded. You know two years ago. I went to china with team. Usa and they finished seventh in the world cup. And you know really was their worst finish in you know you know since two thousand four athens games which they still won bronze in but their worst finish over in the world cup and that team it. Just frankly wasn't very good. There was only one or two players in the whole roster would ever even been all stars and so while you can look at some things and see some cracks. That was not a representative team. I know that. Lebron and steph curry and anthony davis aren't playing but this is representative team. This team is loaded like a ten of the players. I think are were all stars in the last year and Almost everybody rotation was either all. Nba this year or should have been all nba. like durant. didn't naked 'cause injuries but trust me he's all nba player right so Having said that you see that much talent they should struggle and still win.
"athens" Discussed on Henderson County, Texas
"We are here with steve barksdale. The citizen of the year for athens two thousand and eighteen steve the way the citizen of the year award works is the prior. Five citizens of the year are in committee and choose who the next citizens going to be you guys this year have done something. Totally different than any other group has done. Tell us what it is. Okay well what we did lose it. We we got together and we talked over the phone because of the covid regulations and it was mentioned that we would highlight the healthcare teams of athens. Which would include the hospital. The clinics the nursing homes assisted living the urgent cares the ambulance the fire police and the clinical staff the we just wanted to highlight the team. That made the difference now. What we've came to that. Is that our normal procedure changed because normal procedure. Is that what we have. Is we ask those five years have tenants. We go out. Usually in december and asked the junky public. What do you want as citizen year. Who do you want for citizen of the year then. Those names are compiled in the first week of january. Usually and then we know who the citizens we select. The committee selects that from the citizens recommendations. Well this year Venue because things were covid things with the chamber we were just kind of at limbo so when we got together and visit over the phone this came up and we just loved the idea to celebrate those citizens that have been under the gun source. Be an end the fire this year and that would be. You can't explain it. I grew up in a fire department. Family my mother was a nurse at a nursing home and when you sit there and see what the nursing staff gone through and our doctors have gone through and you watch what we've seen that's kind of how the committee just unanimously said. Let's make them soon the year. Luckily i was able to get a hold of yourself and the athens review and we had some time together kind of thing things out in some great ideas that you guys gave us even impacted it better. And so we're we're excited about recognizing these citizens that have been in the trenches for us have served us well have have earned the right to be citizen of the year for many years to come but they we just did it differently and it just kinda landed upon it. And that's the way the good lord warp tumbling. Tell me how lucky athens's to have the health care facilities in the healthcare personnel. That we have.
"athens" Discussed on Henderson County, Texas
"Right now yes. It's it's a lot more difficult. You're having again sticker population that as soon as somebody gets it there. They end up getting quarantined trying to identify who they've been around because of that risk is very difficult so You've already talked a little bit about some of the things that have changed. Now what do you see that. Maybe you know as you seen anything. This change that it'll be permanently. Changed here in athens in in medicine. I think a greater attention to hiding if that makes sense whether it be more hand sanitizer handwashing or just cleaning things better. It's you don't want to think about something not being completely clean when you go places but in all reality you cannot be perfectly clean. Doesn't matter how many times you wipe it down and so paying more attention to detail getting better procedures using technology for that much better manner. I think will stick. I know when this all started as well trying to find hand. Sanitizer was impossible right in the toilet paper. We're gone shirt so now. Hand sanitizers everywhere. You walk into anywhere. There is hand sanitizer available literally anywhere. It's ubiquitous it's everywhere. I don't know too many people that don't have one or two one guy went into a bag or whatever. My wife doesn't go anywhere without hand. Sanitizer hand sanitizer. Just hold out my hand. And i get a little exactly. Yeah exactly so with all of this is going on and you mentioned it. A little bit about how. There's a sense of teamwork within the the medical association or the doctors in in athens specifically kind of in unison. And what's going on with the pandemic and how we're trying to treat it and what's going. What what your facing. And i guess i see what we have. We have heard other places where there had been some dissension within the ranks of doctors. About what exactly the pandemic is. Do we see any of that year. Not for anybody that. I've talked to regularly. I know going to get in this as an issue with everything. Not just medicine. You're going to get somebody that says. They've got the latest greatest or well. Yeah they're going to say that this isn't real sure they're going to say that it's not as bad as they say it is. I have not talked to a physician in athens that i see regularly whether the clinic or the hospital or even some of the doctors that don't do housework work anymore. That thinks that this is a hoax. Or that it's not affecting them because you're seeing your little earlier you're seeing people die and you're hearing people that die from it and you're going to get the the one or two people that say well they're probably dying from something else and for whatever reason sure but i've had more death certificates or notifications than i've ever had and it's just it'll be reined it'll be from somewhere somewhere else right like you said. I mean you hear you hear that idea that. Oh it's pneumonia and all that it's different. It's not different pneumonia two years ago compared to the pneumonia as he gets today. That's co related is totally different. They do different. Diseases are actively. so tell me..
"athens" Discussed on Henderson County, Texas
"Is there anything happening to try to help. Doctors deal with the type of situations that you're in. I guess there's always the knowledge of the pandemic may happen. But it's so rare for us. I mean you could. You could easily assumed you'd go your whole career and never see anything like this. Correct the physicians and henderson county and the henderson county medical side elsom fleets malakoff gun barrel city and the physicians that work. There are a very cohesive unit when you have a bunch of doctors. Generally thought is a bunch of egotistical. People that really don't get along with anybody and our group as a whole whether you're direct competitor or a partner is very cohesive. We share resources when we can. We share experiences when we can if we find out if i find something out now that helps and i noticed this. I'm going to tell people whether they're my partners are not because it's really for the greater good and so as far as any kind of coping mechanism at this point. We don't have won the henderson county. Medical society largely is setup for continued education of the physicians. We used to meet once a month to discuss things to discuss. What's going on around the state. Tma would generally send a representative to discuss. Hey this is what's going on in austin that's going to affect you and so we would have a lotta educational dinners whether it's a specialist from dallas san antonio wherever just to talk about things and educate and since kobe that's basically been stopped so now as the president of the medical society i'll i'll occasionally be reached out for two from some of the smaller doctors of hey i've got a bunch of patients that are interested in the kobe vaccine. How can i get vaccinated. Where do we go. Hey we're running out of peaking reach out to one of the other medical society see if they have extra which of course initially nobody did right. Were in the same place now with the vaccine as we were with the testing the pd. Yes we're giving out vaccines at three different distinct sites athens that i know of currently my clinic like the medical associates. There's also dr. Christopher johnson and berkshires pharmacy. Both in athens and gumbo we are giving out. Vaccines is as we can in a safe manner because we get unlimited amount of vaccines. If you've read anything about the vaccine you know that you need to wait. Fifteen minutes afterwards to make sure there's no reactions and once that biles open you have to use it within a certain amount of time and so. It's not like a flu shot. We just popped somebody to the flu. Shot and move onto the next one. Specific multi use vials. That need to be used. And if you have something missing appointment. Cancel an appointment throwing dose out. Because it's almost impossible to get somebody last minute to come in for that dose. Plus you have all the added headache of trying to do the dom documentation a on top of running a regular clinic. Because i don't have the extra they send the vials. They don't send a staff person to give us right. They don't send me an extra nurse or pharmacist. Who can give the injection so on top of maintaining a clinic that is functioning and seeing patients every day. We're also trying to give the vaccine as as best we can and my receptionist running out of time today because we just get inundated with phone calls from people not just athens athens gun barrel palestine tyler. Dallas trying to get on a list just to get the vaccine. Yeah and and that's a great point that you made to nine one of the things you hear..
"athens" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, <hes>, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine <hes> on the women's side <hes> nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that <hes> place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?
