Is 'Cancelling' Dr. Seuss One Step Too Far?

"Author, So creative As a kid. He was my favorite. As an adult. He's still one of my favorites. Six of these books. Well stop being published. And I thought Oh, my gosh, you please don't tell me this is like cat in the hat. You know, green eggs and ham. Hop on pop One fish, two fish. Any of these. The grants whatever. Um, into think I saw it on Mulberry Street. And if I ran the zoo or two of the books So we start, they'll stop publishing them because of quote. Racist and insensitive imagery. The business of preserves protects the author's legacy. Says these books portrayed people in ways Um Mm hmm. These books portrayed people in ways that are hurtful and wrong, Dr Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press in a statement. The coincided with the late author and illustrators birthday Um is the only part of the of is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr Seuss Enterprises catalog represents and supports all communities and families. Such a Innocents thing, Dr Seuss. So innocent Could barely think of anything that's more innocents and enjoyable. As a kid is a youth. Go to the library, man. I get these books. Now I'll be I'll tell you this. The books that are on this particular list. I have never read. I didn't read. It was a kid. I haven't read him ever. Ah! Mick Elegance pool. On beyond zebra. Scrambled eggs, super and the cats quiz er, now You know, I am aware of Dr Seuss's classic books. I'm really not to where to these of these, I should say. So this decision to cease publication sales of the book was made last year after months of discussion. Dr. Seuss Enterprises is where they won't listen and took feedback from our audiences, including teachers. Academic specialist in the field is part of our review process within worked with a panel of experts, including educators to review our catalog of titles. On books by Dr Seuss. Happy birthday, Dr Seuss. It's his birthday today, March 2nd is born this day in 1904. And his. His books have been translated into dozens of languages as well as in Braille, the sold in more than 100 countries. He passed away in 1991. But boy does he remain popular, earns an estimated $33 million before taxes in 2020. That's up from 9.5 million five years ago. Forbes, listing him is number two on its highest paid dead celebrities of 2020 behind only Michael Jackson. And of course, he is adored Dr Seuss by millions of people around the world. Um For the positive values and his and his in his books. Including environmentalism. Including tolerance. But there's been increasing criticism in recent years. Over the way Some of the people have been portrayed in his books. I mean, I look at the books. I never saw anything that seem defensive. School districts across the country have also moved away from Dr Seuss. Um Hmm. They say they're not have banned the books entirely. Well. That would be read utterly ridiculous. Recent shows Me research in recent years is revealed strong racial undertones of many books written by an illustrated by Dr Seuss hogwash, but that's what the school district said in a statement. I didn't know the good doctor. I don't believe there was a racist bone in his body or a sexist bone in his body. Everything he wrote seem very innocents. And we have to remember this was in different time. A different era. 2017, a school librarian, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, criticized the gift of 10 Dr Seuss books. Why? Well, I'll tell you why? Because they came from the first lady Melania Trump. Saying many of his works were steeped and racist propaganda characters and harmful stereotypes. O Lord.

Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case

"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

Rachelle Strawther, Director of Leadership & Training at Gonzaga, on the Importance of Her 'Love Posse'

"Really excited to share part to with your shell. Strother director of leadership training and development of gonzaga university on taking her lead in the school leadership studies we staff members refer to ourselves as a love posse. There's a funny story about how that happened. Which i won't go into but it came from a realization that what has made us such a strong team over the years we've had people you know Leave the university or come in and join the team. What has made as a strong team is that we truly care for each other and that means that we are willing to speak our truth when we need to and were willing to support each other when people need that support that is what has made us this this love posse and i think that that speaks volumes. In general about how the power of women can create connection and community women at their best. We've community they think they we've togetherness and we have to be able to leverage that and we have to be able to see that opportunity at our worse we can become competitive at our worst we can see each other as Being in the way or as people like you know sometimes women have this mentality of while. There's there's so few spots. And and if she takes this one than i have my own chance and so there can be a competitive spirit to and we have to be very watchful that but at our best women can. We've this sense of connection. I had seen eight. No at were were caregivers. Were nurturers and you can see got in around. The world look at female leaders and the way that they are taking steps to think about the climate change the environment. I love looking at female leaders and around the world and responses to covid nineteen. I talk about strong. Powerful female leadership like for example for the prime minister of new zealand. How that's incredible leadership. The way that she advocates for culture in their their country that takes care of one another. It's been really beautiful to say and so we can do that. Were the effectively but we have to support each other in that role. We have to see each other as it is and his women who can bring each other up and notice competitors not as competitors and that can be hard to do but it's it's important for us to do that so i see it as something that we can leverage just briefly Just wanted to go just a little deeper in your perception. How do women bring about that connection in that nurturing in the collaboration are there particular actions or attitudes or perspectives. If you look at the world around us and and history civilizations you see examples of women coming together to raise children women collectively bringing up their children together is it's it's all over history and we still see this in indigenous communities. That is something that we can can learn from. And i see that spirit in my own group of friends amongst women who simply by reaching out to each other like during kovic. We've had ongoing chats our text messages with women who throughout the day. We'll say hey. I want to pass this along. My gosh you have to see this mean things that will bring giggles. Make us smile but also give us a moment of support and strength when we need it. It's a powerful the touch points that women have with each other to know. I think this is what someone may need at this moment and In our if. I look at our staff team. You know the love posse is called it or we call it. We do things like read books together yesterday. One of our team members said hey can we explore this new book. Let's can we read the new. Jim crow over christmas break and talk about in january. Those kinds of things that we do together because we know that we are better when we learn and grow together.

How a big, queer, black woman is redefining "yoga body"

"Noticed when i post pictures of my yoga practice that the responses i got from people. It wasn't really like that. Many people giving me feedback on my practice. It was mostly people being like. I don't know that people could do yoga. And i would just be like. Why do you think fat people can't do yoga. Fat people do all kinds of stuff all the time and like clearly we have a visibility problem so this is a really fascinating. Turn taking those comments. Which could either understandably caused someone to be like. Fuck you instagram. I'm piecing out But rather see it as an opportunity. And i'm curious why that was for you. Yes if it had just been people saying like wow. I didn't know if that person can do yoga. I like them. Bitch get is because everybody. Does everything concern about that. But on top of that was people being like. I didn't know fat people could do yoga. I'm fat person. Can i do yoga. And so my response to that is hell. Yeah you can do in fact you should and in fact it's not just fat people so that like there'd be so many different kinds of people who will reach out to me be like wow. I didn't know that someone who looks different than what society tells us. They should look like is allowed to do whatever they want. This is inspiring me to do whatever i want and that to me was a motivator to continue to engage with the community and the community. Was i sure. Engaging back justin's instagram accounts started growing photo by photo. She was posting videos of herself. Working through a sequence. He was offering her own advice for complicated poses. And you better believe. She brought her personality along for the ride. This was no like straight laced. Candle lit all white yoga session. No enya playing in the background. She was playing lauren hill in the background and she would encourage her followers to try yoga themselves if they were too nervous and eventually she started getting messages from people asking her to come teach them where they were. They'd be like can you come. Teach me in sweden. can you come to melbourne. Can you come to like venezuela. I'll know dude like literally everywhere. Jesmyn was flattered but she wasn't convinced that the world needed more yoga teachers. It wasn't until after her friends. And even her parents encouraged her to pursue teaching that she gave in and decide to get some training but there is still a problem because caroline becoming a yoga teacher or going through. Why t or yoga teacher training can cost between two and three thousand dollars as a grad school dropout working in a tapas restaurant like gentleman is not making that kind of dough but her parents actually stepped in and helped her which was a financial burden for them but very cool way to support her so she quit day jobs and enrolled going in jesmyn. Figured she'd get this credential hardest poses and that'd be that but about halfway through the through the training we were doing this partner. Yoga exercise and i was paired with someone who is much smaller than i am. She is like five feet tall. I don't know how much you weigh. When you're that you're that she's like that So and then. I'm so we're on opposite sides of the spectrum and as a fat body person i have spent my whole life paranoid about even touching somebody in a way. That could hurt them like. I'm afraid that if i sit too close to someone that i could hurt them like. There's this constant obsessive thought about the weight in needing to apologize for the wait and so the idea of being in this environment where i haven't have to physically put my entire body weight onto this. Very tiny person was horrifying to me. And so i spent like every time that i would even touch her. I would apologize every time. I'd be like oh i'm sorry. Oh i'm sorry. Oh i'm sorry. And after a while she stopped me for hand on my shoulders literally and looked in my eyes and was like you do know. You don't have to apologize for everything right. And i laughed because laughing is one of my defense mechanisms and i was like. Oh yeah sorry I guess i just was apologizing for existing and to hear me say it. She just caught her eyebrows. Me and like went back to the but i was shook i was like. Are you kidding me. i think i don't deserve to exist. i think i'm apologizing for existing. Is that how long have i been thinking that like have been thinking that since birth

This is something. We put together that we're branding or calling. Check ride turbulence taking the bumps check rides and this week. We want to talk about really something basic to help you. Prepare for the check ride That that wally sees too few people doing and that. I enforced here about some students that come to us from other schools. Don't use these books on a regular basis and as we become commercial pilot's probably think of more but a student pilots. You should have and be aware of three big things as it relates to flying. There's obviously more but these are three things for the check. Ride the p. h. The acs and the foreign name. And if you were to bring those three books to your check ride and actually know how to use them know. What's in them. I think you'd be surprised how easy that check ride. They would go would you. Would you agree. Well absolutely i. i remember my first I grew up in an aviation family. I flew with my father quite a bit as a as a very young Young little boy. But i took my. I what i call my first real flying lesson on august. Thirty first nineteen eighty-one so almost forty years ago and it was in a tomahawk piper tomahawk. Who was two five four nine alpha and member walking The the i fly. We flew for about an hour and we walk back into the flight. School the f. b. l. And i remember my instructor taking me right up to the counter and there's a little display case there and he said you need to get that book right there and you need to learn it now. I have already done private pilot. Ground school so i already had a copy of the f. a. r. a. m. and You know. I had a jepson Private pilot book and so i was Well on my way. But i remember him saying okay. You need to buy that book and you need to know everything in it. And so that night i remember going home and opening up the po h. And starting to remember it To memorize it and learn it and you know. I remember learning the menu. The propeller manufacturer was a seventy eight inch propeller fixed pitch. And i'm i'm thinking to myself. Well okay he said. I needed to learn it so you know what that meant on that day did you. Did you instantly know what all that Probably not probably not. But i did. I learned it And nowadays I i went back. And i think of my career my aviation career and how many check rides. I've taken over my career. And i i don't know how many it is but it's a lot and i don't think i have ever taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not have a personal copy of the po h whether it be in print or digitally I went to my bookshelf. The other day and i found that tomahawk manual. I still have it. it's again. It's over forty years old. I have a a beechcraft baron manual. I have a beechcraft duchess. I've bonanza manual. I have one for a a warrior and they're old but they're they're still good information and a mess still valid and of course with the airlines You know the issue you manuals and back in the day used to be paper manuals but now it's all digitally transmitted the ipad so that makes it very nice but again i have never taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not own the manual to And you know so. What are you studying the manolo. The peo- h we're talking about here So what do you study well you know obviously limitations It's more knowing where it's more knowing how to use the manual then knowing what's in it And and i tell people man you know if you're just gonna spend ten minutes getting an overview of the manual. Maybe the table of contents for each chapter might be a thing just so you know what's in there. Yeah and we'll we'll show some of my lack of pilots. When i was a student you know. And and how i got smarter as i got more proficient in probably happens everybody but i fly. Our one eighty two a lot now flat a lot with my family. I check the fuel Obviously a lot i have. A dipstick tells me how much fuels in that and recently I think i asked a rampart or somebody to check that for me before i went then i checked it again before i went in the numbers aren't the same that i had asked for and i thought that was a little bit odd But they they they want and did that with the dipstick and they they had the wrong dipstick of course but i asked him. Do you know in the ph where to look at. How many gallons are in the tank because they had a dipstick said a different number of gallons in that particular tank and this is a student pilot who wants to learn and i wanted to teach them and also teach my staff as well as saint. Thomas said where do we look. Let's go pull out the peo- h. And look at it and it was funny. They jumped towards the back and performance in the fuel system. And all these other places but as you talk about limitations there's a pretty good summary right up in the fourth or fifth page that drives about what each tank has in it and that's a quick way to verify and to your point about knowing how to use the book i don't necessarily need to know every plane and every tank size and everything at an airport but if i'm going to go fly that plane i better know where to find out how much fuel it can hold.

Namaste: Seeing the Truth of Who We Are

"Number stand. Welcome those of you. That are listening regularly. We always start with this gesture and word of nama stay and you might be aware that the word stay is a way of greeting or bowing or honoring the divine that lived through all of us and the gesture of the palms togetherness slate bowing of the head is part of the embodying that that honoring and i love that. I do a lot of bowing and my own practice because in the moments of going like this. There's a tenderness and care that wakes up through it for the life that's really living through all of us and i often contrasted in my mind too because in asia people go around all the time nama stay on and then in the west we shake hands and the origin fifth century. She is my hands empty. I'm not carrying a weapon. Not carrying a gun which is a great step as we know. I'm safe which is beautiful. I sometimes think that. Because we're in this time of different. Currents around the globe in influencing how would be in contemporary society of that became part of our living ritual with each other are whatever way we wanted to adapt it that that we saw each other and someplace in us looked into the eyes that were there. And you might. You might do this right now. Just you can close your eyes the event but just sense okay this is a moment of really honoring and bowing to the beauty and goodness and all beings and just to to your head slightly and sense that mentally whispering. Perhaps if you'd like and sense whether it brings you home to a tender heartedness and open heartedness so we begin this way because of the theme for tonight and not just begin by saying that. The buddha taught that the core of our suffering is a forgetting of who we are that we live in an idea of a limited self fearful cellphone wanting shelf winning shelf a losing south and we forget the the love and the and the light that really is living through us and one of my favorite stories. I heard many many years ago when my son was still in waldorf school here in washington i think he was looking at fifth grade and the art classes. The children would gather around their art tables. Maybe four table and one day. The teacher was circulating around as the children were drawing and one little girl was really into it and she's really into her drawing and to the teacher stood behind her for a while and then finally she asked her. She said so hon. What are you drawing. And the little girl didn't respond right away but then she said i'm doing god and the teacher took that and she was well you know nobody really knows what god looks like without skipping a beat without even looking up she said they will in a moment often. Think about John o'donoghue poet said that she said what happened to our wildness. That wildness of god's of the divine of that sense of really being connected. And we kinda get civilized out of us a bit and thomas merton puts it this way. He says life simple. We're living in a world that's absolutely transparent and divine shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story are fable. This is true it's true. So what will explore in this talk is really what gets in the way of what what stops us from being able to genuinely fuel and see and shanshan into it that intrinsic goodness and honor what gets in the way and just say that if we take that the evolutionary perspective the delusion. The forgetting isn't like a mistake. It's it's just part of the process that we come into form and we get identified this something smaller than what we are and that as we evolve we begin to recognize all the patterns to keep us small

"In one thousand nine hundred fifty four. The united states supreme court in the landmark case brown versus the board of education held the racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional were desegregation was accepted and implemented. This strategy was successful but in many parts of the country it would take much more than a court order. Change public opinion rooted in centuries of anti-black races politicians in county and state governments across the south found ways to go round the laws sometimes they slash state funding for public schools. Integrate sometimes they supported private academies attended predominantly by white students. The main thrust behind african-american interest in desegregating was a desire for access to quality education. They understood that dollars followed white children into white schools. Nearly twenty years after the brown decision many schools remained segregated even in the north and nowhere. Was this more evident than in boston. Massachusetts in response the nwa cpi presented a class action suit demanding that schools and educational officials should act in one thousand nine hundred seventy four a federal judge in massachusetts rule. That students in boston would be bused from one neighborhood to another neighborhood to balance school systems. Racially working class white. One of the things that they have been able to benefit from is being able to send their children to all white schools and the resources and privilege that comes along with that and now they're being asked to give that up in south boston. As many as eighteen thousand students were forced to attend new schools. Angry protesters carried signs per brix at buses and blocked school entrances opposition to integration continued. Well after the initial violence subside. Many middle class white families moved to the suburbs abandoning the city's public school system. Sixty years after brown. V board of education american classrooms remain shockingly segregated a direct result of families continuing to move to the suburbs taking public funding based on property taxes. Along with the goals of brown v board remain unfulfilled even though it spirit lives on..

"Yeah to of Gus what she knew, and then don't tell her. It's me and that's the opening song. Don't tell her it's me so if you're watching this like cancer, Zinke cartoon, you hearing like, don't tell their. It's me, but you're also like. Don't tell me. Lear singing. and. Oh, I didn't even pick up on that one of those cumbersome like we made a song about the title of the movie, but it doesn't. It's not like a catchy title anyway. They're eighty reviews. Seventy eight percent are. Are? Five stars and right now the DVD is out of print, so DVD's cost fifty dollars, and they've gone up to almost a hundred dollars in the past. This just came out on streaming. So you're welcome. That's why we're doing it But in the past I will say this is a movie and I'm forgetting. Whoever sent this to me, but we get movies all the time. This really wanted to do. And someone had a V. H. S. of it sense of VHS and then burned four DVD's for us. And the reason why we didn't do it until now is because it wasn't really readily available. So, here are some reviews, and I'm going to get into the ones that all kind of say the same thing, but a start up with this one from Janette. Jeannette rights are the title. Is Sleeper big sleeper? This movie is worth watching just for the little girl five stars I mean. I don't I. Don't disagree. I loved that little girl I loved her performance to Judge Watch it just for the little girl. That's. All right well. Other one goes a little bit off the rails as well. This is from Grand and I love Jamie, Gertz ever since the lost boys movie. If you haven't seen it and you like Vampires Jason Patric and the boyfriend school, you must see it. It doesn't make sense basically just saying if you like vampires shows like the components of lost boys. You'll like this movie. So because Jason Patric and Vampires at the two example, she uses neither are in boyfriend school. No, but Jamie. Gertz is the connective tissue and listen. I'd love to be connected to the Gertz. Averse you know, which is just all of the Gertz movies as wanting universe one shared narrative by the way I will say that Pete, the s man these designed a gift. Gertz shirt. It's pretty amazing. All the money from that shirt is going to feeding America. We've already raised over seven thousand dollars in our shirts so far for Americans, holding him holding I'm holding mind right now on zoom only for Paulin June to see I. Wear it often I love rate shirt. I had a great shirt if my favorite t shirts and Look in the mirror and see a Anna Beth Gish Jamie Gertz looking back at me. You know issues. Reach out. She wants to be on the show. We gotta get Gish on the show. Listen. We're gushing for Gish. Another spinoff podcast. This one written by pen. Dora, we're giving. I Dunno regrets for I'll work on another worker I did actually post my picture of me with my Jamie Gertz impersonator. Talk about that story on the podcast where I ran a fake autographed. Session at my blockbuster video and I posted up on Instagram a couple of weeks ago, so you can scroll back and see if people said that she looked like. She looked like Gertz and she was wearing a Bra. People pointed out to get a beeper on Okay, so you like two girls in high school who had burst, and it was a really big deal me. burs were a real sign of status. Beeper when I moved to New York and no one ever really used it, and it was so upsetting a check my beeper, no! Fees don't make me cry. If, you listen Paul. If you give me the number, I will send you everything like I just met you. This is crazy. Give him a number. Beat me lately. Guys this is our for Bandera. If a hopeless romantic with a twist of sensuality than this movie is for you i. wish more men went to boyfriend school. And now we get into my favorite reviews. Okay, here we go. This is from Vm Korea she writes I saw this movie years ago and loved it. The other Dan TV I saw a movie starring Steve Gutenberg after so many years, and I fell in love with Stevie again owe him as Lobo ladies. He looks hot hot hot. It's a total chick flick and I love it five. The boyfriend. And then it goes, and then that's on is from J. Rice love love this movie. It will be a true classic. I'm sure every woman has fantasized that this would happen to her at one time or another, and it actually happened to me why five stars? What did you mean it actually happened to her? How? He met her logo. And then this one is from Luna. Ray Al and she goes I am super excited to find this film on DVD after all my searching. If they had not changed the name, I would have owned it sooner the old title. Don't tell her me was better, but I'll take it out. I can own it. This is the best ever Romantic Comedy Steve Gutenberg Not Man Enough Well, all I have to say is I. Take Him over your other Hollywood, stars any day, Everyone D- roles that's supposed to be drools. Everyone drools over Brad Pitt and I'm thinking have him. There is something about Steve Gutenberg that just draws me and he is an amazing actor. He is the perfect man and he did an awesome job in this film. He is amazing in high spirits as well, but this film is still the best. I am so thrilled I found it on DVD. After all of my searching. Five stars classic must see must own must rewatch over and over again. FILL WOW! I'm married for and listen no shade to Steve Gag I think Steve Berg is great in this movie can keep looks great. Great in other movies from this era as well fun fact about Steve Gutenberg giant Penis I know this because on Howard Stern. He talks about it often. By giant like million Willem Defoe I think we are talking William Defoe, style penis and he I think he did. In in in its girth and length I think he's got PD. This guy was a sex symbol in the eighties and he I think he carries himself with. The key wouldn't well. That'd be of the thing. Okay so that gets a little bit of the question or the problem we have which is regular Steve Gutenberg Woodbury. It's not lake at. Post Cancer. He looks like and this is someone else I love, but this is not so. This is no shade to this person, but he doesn't look like Rick Moranis. You Know He looks like Steve Gutenberg who's. Who's I love about love, Love Rick Moranis, but like he's like more stereotypically Nerdy, quiet drawn. You believe he might need a logo. He might need a lobo character. I think the funnier movie with Rick. Moranis because there. He is a sex symbol that is transforming himself into a sex symbol. It's like if Chris Hemsworth did this movie. It's not that funny. It's like you already. If it's like fat thor, avengers can be Chris Hemsworth maybe Liam, Hemsworth. Now you're talking now we're now. We're talking. We're talking about the you know Chris Hemsworth? Just two hands of Liam, Hemsworth. Oh BARF! Get him out of here. And this is no disrespect to Steve Berg's performance, which I think is great, but when he has those moments of like the quick changes from logo back to gus. They are I mean. I enjoyed all of it, but. They're not as sharp because..

"Sure that they have within. Before the school close Michelle's classroom was a bright spot fool of music and colors. She says it was like a rainbow threw up inside. She worked hard to build a strong sense of school culture. But when the corona virus hit she had to adapt when this and signing I started I I really hit a block in my teaching and I said how might going to be able to do this to bring the same atmosphere that I had in my classroom to bring it to a computer screen. So the loud music hasn't stopped. The corny jokes haven't stopped this smile and the air fist-bump have not stopped on Tuesdays. We have tutoring for the students. When I noticed that the students weren't jumping on for tutoring they were jumping on just to say hello. You would have never thought that middle school students would have ever said I miss school. Those words three words I miss school would have never come out of middle school students and to me that was that filled my heart and so I knew something was missing so what I did is. I started the social. Our weekly social hour is just a place for us to disconnect talk about netflix video games. Even though I know nothing about video games we talked about families. We meet pets a big pet person. So I'm like bring the pets on screen and that started to build my culture back up even from a distance and you know my first social our was about ten students in grew to about twenty five and then it grew all the way. My biggest one was about seventy students other than that. I'M SENDING UBER. Eats dinners to students. Who are doing a great job or I'll send Domino's family dinner for families that I know are in need of it. It would be a wonderful surprise for them eventually. Michelle started mailing out care. Packages different things like in the care packages life savers pencils crayons. So I knew this started to hurt my pocket a little bit so I had to create Amazon wishlists and I had a tremendous response to this end. I started getting local businesses to donate gift. Cards little coupons for them to get a free ice cream or free hamburger so then my idea of only sending out you know twenty thirty care. Packages turned into sending out more than a hundred something care packages and so for a child that just really gave them a fresh outlook on distance. Learning saying hey my teacher still there. She still loves me. And cares about me. Which would look like when you're putting these packages together. Oh my gut like right now. My kitchen table is full of Just the Manila the bubble packaging so we have just envelopes everywhere. I've had anonymous donors. Send me postage so this has really blossomed into a big project and I think society right now doesn't realize how beautifully and Grace Police Teachers have done this. We went from classroom to full in head first hundred miles an hour to distance learning and they have done it without hesitation and Donna gracefully beautifully and I really have to just think teachers all around the world because they are filling a void that the children have right now. Michelle Sandoval Vegas. I appreciate you so very much. Thank you for the work. You and your fellow teachers are doing. Thank you so much. It really meant a lot to kind of share my story and the story of my students show Sandoval. Vegas is a math teacher. Park Middle School in El Paso Texas. Thank you.

Where you're spending a lot of money we're just not spending it efficiently and we're not spending it democratically. Dr Ali is Associate Professor Immediate Studies at the University of Virginia. Well we've been spending roughly eight billion dollars a year since twenty fifteen so that would be at least forty billion plus the USDA controls and other billion and. They've been doing that since he goes on this for a while tallying I'd say upwards of all things being said and done Probably a hundred billion dollars that we have spent in the last twenty years trying to connect this country the Federal Communications Commission or sec managed a good portion of that money. Doling out huge grants to big Internet service providers. We gave a ton of money to the nine biggest telecommunications companies those are companies like at and T. Frontier Centurylink windstream. We gave them a billion dollars a year and we said go forth and connect America the company's lead hundreds of thousands of miles of cable to bring broadband to places. That didn't have it. But don't Charlie says they often didn't do a good job and they didn't have to because companies helped write the rules. This is a colossal failure and we failed at number of capacities. So they didn't have to deploy fiber optic connections for instance. They could just keep rolling out their old school copper. Networks are old school DSL networks which were a lot cheaper so we giving them billions of dollars to connect rural America with a nineteen nineties era technology and this was in two thousand fifteen to twenty fifteen centurylink and frontier communications.

"Now it's just a different way of looking at that question. I think yeah it's kind of a different paradigm of generosity and abundance and of course again just to be clear. I love money so we don't leave that aside we do. It's not that we don't look at the tactics but I think the underpinning energy of how to really look through the lens of your whole business of there's a more than enough to go around you're going to make an impact on people whether or not they wind up becoming customers raving fans and oh by the way we're gonNA teach the most effective way to turn. The people are right for you to become an ideal customers into those paying customers and men to to lifelong fans. Kurt love it. Let's see John. Says Awesome guest speakers. Yeah just wondering if you're starting a social enterprise. Business versus a nonprofit or for profit will be school. Be The right match so first of all. I can answer this because we have business owners of all different kinds. So be school works for you. If you'RE A nonprofit or you're a for profit and it's really easy like if you're a nonprofit business you still have to convert donors right and you want them to be ideal customers people that support your organization so I remember Louise's it molly that we had like. She created like six figures of donations and like her first year. Remember what I'm talking about. Yeah we might be able to put her story link somewhere but we have lots of nonprofits stories and of course we have tons of Fort Prophet stories to anyone else. Want Anti you guys. Good on that. Yeah Okay Great Another one says I have no social media presence and don't do social media God bless you and I don't like it very much but I got you is that a drawback for finding success through B.

Its Algorithms all the time so you may have big facebook audience. You can have a big instagram audience. But you own your email list so you don't need to be on social but you do need an email list or earliest. I truly believe you do. Oh yeah I I've been preaching. This is nine hundred ninety nine talking about it until someone else gets created. Email email email. But do you have to be on social media? So I think there's a couple of different ways to look this as a business. Owner one social is a reality and it can be seen as like what we call top of funnel right. It's a place where your ideal customers may be hanging out so I don't know what kind of business that you're intending to start. But just know that you can also create a social media presence as a brand. It doesn't have to be your face and there's a very effective way to do that. So if you're concerned either about privacy or you don't necessarily want your fought all over the interwebs..

I've met we've met. We're familiar so you it. That was me coming home the other night on the eve. If you will of a big decision okay after we put to bed you know we sit on the couch and carlo arlo had a glass of red wine. We got cozy. Get close to we can do this. Okay so i mean we. We need even school we do. It seems like we're like okay so eve's too and like this is going to be her first real school experience and we're trying to decide on a preschool but the thing is carla wants to send her to an afro centric school. Oh i see okay look. I know what efforts inter school is supposed to be like centering the black experience and talking about black black history in a much more substantive way and don't get me wrong. I have a lot of problems with the way that most schools like centre white and european experiences. This is okay but that said isn't afro-centric school definitely better i in my head the details of what happens there are just fuzzy like is it a lot of story times about ancient egypt mixed in with some off. It just seems like a bunch of people trying to teach my daughter what what it means to be black and like. I have a lot of feelings about that my biggest one being. I don't really trust other people to do their ah among ally <hes> it's hard to be like i don't want my child to have a strong foundation. They should have black is like you know i wanted to grow up steep their wife supremecy but like the idea you know everybody's everybody's idea in like integrating blackness and to educational compensation isn't the same there are people who are quote unquote vary <hes> pro black who still look at certain depictions of blackness as problematic. There are a lot of really talks ick ideas surrounding respectability politics..

"I have found some informal collections of anecdotes nick dotes and based on that i would have to say some very common dreams are <hes> i have to go back to high school and finish a class or a test that i never finished and i don't know all in like there's the knowledge that i am an adult but i have to go back and do this. Yes i've definitely done that. Whatever i've definitely had that end. I've done that one to a certain extent because i went back after college and taught high school the high school that i attended wow so i kind of had this weird like i was kind of living the dream the worst way possible and so i will sometimes have dreams that are i'm sometimes a little vague as to whether i am dreaming about teaching high school at my old high school more. I'm dreaming aiming about attending the high school or having to go back and take a class that i didn't finish that sort of thing. What age were you when you were teaching at that high school. I mean i was fresh out of college. So i was was <hes> early twenty twenty. Oh yeah so that might come back later when we talk about <hes> different periods of life in the formation of memories that that might be relevant to your case here so <hes> another thing that is extremely common in fact just before we started off we were talking to our producer today seth and he was saying that he's he's had this dream. I've had this dream. I've talked to tons of people who've had the stream who have been out of school for decades and it's this is the end of the semester. There's a class what's that i forgot i was enrolled in and i haven't been going to and now i suddenly remember ono. I'm in this class and i've got to go take the final exam. Yep i have done that one as well. Where i missed the deadline to drop the class <hes> <hes> and or just forgot that i had it entirely and end. It'll like someone like i'm a mental calendar of when your classes are and it's usually something like oh a wednesday morning class and it was it was sandwiched between two other classes and somehow i just missed it yeah yeah yeah i get the exact same calendar effect. Actually i think about like oh i wasn't going because i was doing this other thing this time of the week and i just forgot repeatedly that that i had this class now i suddenly remember and <hes> and my chicken is cooked. I mean they're like it. There's no way i'm going to pass this exam. <hes> other common things things that i found reported <hes> are difficulty with navigating the school environment so being in high school or being in college and being unable to find the classroom <hes> so you're running around. You're late for the class and you're trying to get there but you can't find the door. You can't get in <hes>. I've never had that one yeah. It's it's weird eared how you know the our experiences will will vary that one. I've never had never had a problem getting to the dream classroom in a dream another big when i think is school-based embarrassment dreaming about like being embarrassed in front of a classroom or in front of classmates or like having to give a presentation in front of a class us and not being prepared or being embarrassed some way see i i the weird thing is i don't have any of those related to <hes> actual all clas- experiences but but since i was in theater i do have dreams related to productions that i haven't learned my lines. Yes i have the same aimed dreams. I did theater in high school in the i. I very frequently dream that i suddenly remember. Oh yeah. I'm in a play. That's opening tonight and i haven't looked at my lines yet right. How about this one. This is a weird one but i feel like i hear this one pretty often <hes> sort of blending of school with the workplace or with the current friend group group and blending of like old teachers with bosses <hes> you get this no no. I don't really get that one. I've got the blending of workplaces to a certain extent because i i'll have dreams where i didn't actually fully quit my previous job..

"Anyway. It was really weird being back back even though it was me back there as it wasn't my old school which is actually probably for the best I imagine. It's been a lot of memories and trauma the since doused in Gin and turned into stupid jokes that would just love to chance to jump out and again. I mean some of them did anyway when I got because we carry all ghosts with as I can still remember everything about the old school or at least I I think I can memory is strange and unreliable. As far as I can tell I can remember every classroom every corridor the weight fouts and the the smells especially that one time said Cherry shot shot in a jar and hid in a cupboard that kindness is very hard to forget anyway it turns out that teenage kids love it when people come into school and swear of it until about ranking and sex and stuff which is great because that is exactly where my skills lie and you know I was using my powers for good as I had to sit with a group of six or seven of them at time and I found I could get their attention with a quick blank joke and then told them through the brilliance of never really knowing what you want to do with your life know how it's okay to be unsure and all of that stuff. I wish someone had told me when I was their age. I swear I saw a boy in one class spray himself five times in one hour with links Africa and not even like onto his skin. It was directly onto his shirt. There's a belief system for you. The might not I believe in Santa Anymore but give him some foul smelling liquid until the middle help him Poland. They'll bathe in it during one of the breaks with the kids I tweet about our bonding well with everyone over Wang jokes because I was excited and I was. Pleased with how well it was going honestly when I arrived I wasn't sure what to expect in going back to that place as an out and proud gay man after leaving it as a confused and angry teenager. was you know a really big thing for me but then I got taken aside aside by a teacher we've just seen your tweet about telling Wang jokes with the students. I know you haven't mentioned what school you're at but I don't think that's very appropriate do you. This was so weird being told off outside a classroom Seru was really not what I was expecting data go. I drew breath to say I am a thirty six year old man. Not One of your students are left this place twenty Jesus. I left this place twenty years ago and your hold over me ended then I do not answer to you and your school is not implicated in nor necessarily endorsing my tweet. No harm has been done. Let's leave the matter there because you have no power over me now. Be About Your Business and leave me to the impressive selection of biscuits that have been provided which is weird because what came out of my mouth was no mycerinus audience in that moment I was fifteen again I could feel Mahathir moving into over gelled curtains and the spots reappearing on my face and suddenly I was wearing that Red V-neck in the grey tie that was horrible uniform they made his where I might never be able to go back in time and go back to the old school building but by Christ. This was close so anyway once I. A deleted the offensive tweet and been allowed to shovel a few more biscuits into my face and the flashbacks for my own teenage years had kind of faded back into the background noise. We got back into the sessions with the students I went round to one of the little groups and I had to ask them what they wanted to do when they left school some of the new exactly others had vague ideas most of them just went to know and shrugged. I was keen to drive home. My message of fulfilling life not just chasing away so I said okay then what you interested in what you enthusiastic about because there's always ways to make money doing something you love. Although it does tend to be a lot more work there was a pause from everyone in that kind of like no one wanted to speak kind of way and eventually one of the boys with this stone cold Polka face said I think we're all enthusiastic. Ask about pornography. Account Fault is honesty. I suppose so you know being pro. I rolled with it and said yes there are always careers in adult entertainment but according to some of the Pawn Stars I know it can be very hard work..

"Relate, hey, can you hook me up with some of that? And so they started selling it to other students around the school. Vodka, clear like water genius, introducing large amounts vodka into the school for daydream king, not genius. How widespread of thing did this become? It was a pretty decent problem. There is a good portion of at least the freshmen, and you know it was a big school. So even if there was like ten percent of students that's still going to be like in double digits or potentially in hundred of students who are partaking in this, Julia says, the kids were portly were stealing vodka from the liquor store across the street, filling water bottles with it coming into school and selling them at a premium. Julius boyfriend Trayvon also went to and quite hallway near the gym. One of these freshmen bootleggers tried to sell them some hooch. He was like, hey, man, wanna buy something to drink, and I had heard this had been going around at the time. So I was like, I asked him a question about it. You know it was like saying alcohol right now, and he was like, yes, and my reaction. It was. Are you kit like this is a joke, right? You're not seriously trying to do this right now. Oh, you are? Okay. Well, no, thanks but I didn't wanna be narc and so I kind of kept it to myself. Eventually, this problem got really bad. Julia says kids were wasted all over school. Passing out at their desks. Teacher started to smell it at one point. There's a big school assembly and a kid can't seem to walk up the bleachers. He ends up getting a Breathalyzer and blows way over the legal limit for driving. But the legal limit for drinking as a high school kid is zero point zero. So so it's now a big enough issue that it is clear that the water bottle thing isn't going to work. They can't check every single bottle. Eventually, the teachers had emergency meeting about it. Narrow like what on earth are we gonna do about? This is ridiculous. All these kids are coming to school super trunk. We can't like, what are we gonna do ban water bottles? Are we going to ban water from the school? And they did. They did just that. And they said the school has a new policy that we're not allowed to have water issue with water at Eisenhower. High school is expanding. I, the new school didn't include enough drinking fountains. Now. Kids can't bring their own water bottles to class started threatening to pull their kids because how can you fan water? It's, you know, it's necessary for life. There wasn't water at lunch. You could only buy milk milk only at lunch. That's gross. Yeah. Well, and you could only get like apple juice or something. If you have like a doctor's note saying you had dairy allergy, so you couldn't even opt out of that. So how did it get resolved? Well, everyone got super upset and so the principal and you know, all the all of the higher ups in our school were like, hey, guys, you can't tell students that they can't have water. They need that to be alive and they're stuck here all day hydration. It's really important, especially, you know, when you're in a learning environment, you have to stay hydrated or your not going to work, right? You're not going to retain anything. You know the kids brains were working, though the proof is in the jokes. Trayvon saw evidence in one of the computer lab classes. I came in one day and. One of the desktop backgrounds of the screens had been changed to this Aquafina ad that somebody had Microsoft painted over the lyrics to that song turn down for what over the thing and set it as the desktop background as in turn down for what the Lil Jon drinking anthem. Okay. I'll. Eventually things did apparently turned down the year after I graduated, they fix the plumbing at so. They fixed all that and they opened the walls, but now now not only do they have water fountains, but most of the water fountains actually have those water bottle of fillers on them. We're jealous. We wish it was there when we were there. There was one lingering irony though that wall the one at the school's entrance that represents the Yakima river. Well, yeah, the big blue wall. Yeah, I think they've got it fixed now, but at initially leaked water like crazy, yes, in the school where there were not water fountains installed in the walls, water was leaking out of the wall representing the Yakima river eventually that got fixed to and fixing that little construction error cost half a million dollars. Now, the students know firsthand. How important it is to double check their work, John lacrosse action news, how many bottles of vodka can you buy with? Half a million dollars, a thirty dollar bottles. Carry the one thirty, three thousand calculating already. That makes me queasy. Just thinking about it. Here's some water Emory, I brought my water bottle today. Thanks. Yeah, let's all have a tall glass of water back in a minute. Amery

"Produced by the island at you are Boston. It is may which means that most kids in school right now are thinking about getting out for the summer, but just a few years ago, the kids at Yakima Washington's Eisenhower high school. We're getting pumped about heading back to school because they had a brand new high school to go back to cost over one hundred million dollars to build state of the art, had a big shining, beautiful blue wall at the entrance to artistically represent one of the town's assets, the big shining, beautiful blue Yakima river. What's the mascot? The Eisenhower cadet. This is Julia, Julia. Noel ninety five on read it. She graduated from Eisenhower high or as it's called in two thousand fourteen. She says, I has a lot of school spirit even have one of those hand jive routines just for the school where you like, snap and clap your hands and stuff to show your school pride. Near the end. There was one part where you would do like a fish, swimming motion, and they had to change it like my sophomore year because it got super rowdy and someone pushed off to bleachers point being. I has spirit so much spirit that people are getting knocked off the bleachers. So a whole brand new school back in twenty thirteen. When Julia was an incoming senior was a big deal. But when the kids came back to their new school after the summer break, the came back to a problem, something was missing one of the fundamental ingredients of any school building. And because the new school building was a big deal. This was a big deal. We begin tonight right here in Yakima were students at Eisenhower high or wrapping up their second week at their brand new school, a state of the art wonder. And then is students wondering how they could forget to include water fountains. The contractors had apparently walled over the connections for those things. He used a splash your buddies or cool off your gum. And I suppose every once in a while, maybe hydrate yourself and it wasn't like they just forgot to do something minor. This major new facility was going to need major changes to get the water through the walls and into new water fountains. So they put an a couple of vending machines with water that were like two bucks water bottle. Julia loves telling this story by the way because to her a senior when this water fiasco, when down, it's kind of funny fiasco, you say, yes, he ask, oh, because this little mishap led to a bunch of unforeseen consequences and ended up getting to the point where I'm pretty sure they turned off the vending machines or wants all the bottles were gone. They just didn't refill it. And there was this whole outrage the newspaper, you know, in the news picked up the story and we're like, uh, school Yakima school bands, water. How does a high school band water? We will tell you, won't we Mery. Oh yes. We've got two stories actually about unfortunate school mishaps cringe. You'll laugh. You'll cringe some more, but like good cringe. Anyway, we're gonna call this one schooled. I'm Ben Brock Johnson, and this is endless thread a show featuring the best stories found in the vast ecosystem of online communities called read it. I'm here with my producer and co host receiver Tsen and we're coming to you from WB. You are Boston's NPR station. Alright, so Eisenhower, AK, a high has no water fountains. I guess they technically have two water fountains, but that's for the whole school of two thousand kids and their way out of the way. So the teachers and administrators, no, this is an issue. So the vending machines in the school get filled with bottled water, but that water costs money. So not ideal. They were kinda like we have water bottles for sale. And then all the students were like, we're in high school. We don't have money, and so they were like, oh, well, then just bring a water bottle and the students were like, okay, guess we'll do that. But then something kind of interesting happens. Julia says the year that this is all going down when she's a senior. There were some bad apples among the freshmen typical thing for a senior to say typical. Yeah, yeah. Blame the freshman. Why don't you exactly. And these freshmen, they are enterprising. They get an idea. They started bringing in vodka in water bottles. I think they started just bringing it for themselves and then other other students caught wind and relate,
