Fresh update on "boy" discussed on World Affairs Council
"Can't say I was shocked. Dr. Amy Cooter is a senior lecturer in sociology at Vanderbilt University. She studied militia groups for more than a decade, and she says the movement has a broader appeal than you might think. Militia groups tend to believe that America's constitution and traditional values are under attack. As we close in on a tense presidential election, Cooter says she's concerned some militia groups will resort to violence should trump when I think that a lot of these folks who are really on edge will actually calm down a bit. That will be largely legitimated through his presence. If he loses. I've been saying for a while, and I'm afraid that there will be some groups that lash out. Personally, I'm most concerned about the short term violence if we don't have a clear result the night of the election that the certainty won't be handled very well. So I I think what you're seeing is that white supremacists and far right militants feel empowered by Trump's rhetoric to commit public violence in a way that they had not before. Michael German has been warning us about far right extremists for more than 25 years, ever since he was a boy. German dreamed of being an FBI.

The New iPhones Are Here!
"The new iphones are here the new iphones oh. Okay. I'm down. The Tuesday apple had an iphone event that it was all about the new five G. iphones that have five G. that even have horizon five G. CEO five G. Talking about five G. on the stage for about five G. minutes and then they showed all the phones and literally. I didn't count it, but there is a super cut on Youtube said the words five G. More than two dozen times over and over many times horizon five G. selling all of the benefits you're going to get from five G. None of which you're GonNa get I should point out. Even with the five G. phone because. All of the really cool stuff. You know the four gigabits download speeds. Are. Available Leila. Narrow tiny teeny weeny area in certain cities of the country maybe in one corner of Football Stadium. That's about it. It's only good outdoors don't work inside because it can't go through walls. It only goes about eight hundred feet. So you have to be within eight hundred feet of the cell tower with line of sight access. It can't be a tree between you can't be a building between your they can't be a human or even a raindrop line of sight clear vision eight, hundred feet Max away, and then you might get four g if no one else is using it. For gigabits not. Five, jeep with four gigabits that's confusing it's a marketing term. There's two kinds of five G. actually there's more, but there's two main kinds and the funny thing is that Tuesday verizon also rolled out. There what they call their quote nationwide five G.. The one you don't have to live in Fourteenth Street and race and Philadelphia to get. Outside within a hundred feet of the tower. That is the same as T. mobile's nationwide five G.. It's what we call. low band or It's a six hundred megahertz, which means could go through walls. It can travel a good distance. It's kind of like. In. It's a lot like what you got right now. Maybe a little faster may be probably not. Fact in some cases is even slower. So don't you know I I don't I think apple they must have given apple. How much money do you have to give apple to get your CEO on stage to get them to plug your stuff all the time to save verizon five, rise, five, g. all I mean apple's got more money than God there. The got hundreds of billions of dollars just sitting in the bank with nothing to do. You how much does verizon have to give apple to get all that attention a lot I guess. Maybe. The next time you're in the verizon store that'll explain the giant. By An iphone today billboard I duNNo. Apple also. They didn't use to do this stuff. They didn't. They didn't need to I. Don't think they need to today. They also kind of understated the price of the phone because the price they quoted people was with carrier subsidy. So, unless you're buying it from at and T. or verizon, no, t mobile didn't have eighteen team rising and it's Only, in the base model phones, will you get that deal? So it's not even the price of the phone, it's like when the back when they used to say, it's two hundred dollars with a two year contract. And you pay for it even after two years over, you're GONNA pay for that phone for the rest of your life. So there's four new phone. I just want to say that I want to get that off my chest Pay No attention to the hand waving about five G.. Very. FEW PEOPLE ARE GONNA if he if you're in a five G. Area Nice to have I mean imagine four gigabits. That's wow. That's fast. But. That's Very, few people listening to this can. Be a city eight, hundred feet of a tower you can't be outside it's. Kinda like Wi fi really is what it is Which makes me wonder why you know do people even care about this since most of the time when you're inside, you have wi fi. you know they they said Oh look a a an EMT in emergency Medical technician can get downloaded a a brain, scan a cat scan in the ambulance and look at it up because they have. But I don't does that is that something people are saying, Oh, I really wish I could do that. I. Need to do that. I don't know what they're gonNA do with a brain scan is there right driving you the hospital but okay, fine. Anyway, phones, there's an iphone. Twelve's by the way this is iphone twelve. There's the iphone twelve mini. Which is many it's smaller than the iphone se that they just started selling I mean it's really small. It's the size of like an iphone four. It's tight. But this is what's cool about it. If you want a small phone, it has all the features of the big boy phone. and. It's one hundred bucks cheaper. So. But. But you don't get it for the price. Probably you might s es even cheaper. So you know if you really want to save money get an se which is a perfectly good phone that has the guts have been I. Phone Eleven, and this is has the guts of an iphone twelve and its Tutsi. And it has a nice cameras and all that stuff. Then there's the iphone twelve, which is the IPHONE. that's a little bit bigger, and then there's the iphone twelve pro that's a little bit bigger still, and then there's the iphone Pro Max which is humongous. That's the one I'm going to get. I want humongous right. They didn't really explain the fact that the iphone twelve pro twelve pro Max have kind of different cameras. The only the twelve pro Max, you have to buy the humongous phone. If you want I mean they did some interesting things. They have a sensor that's fifty percent bigger. The that means a lot more light gets in and it has built in optical image stabilization. The sensor shakes when you shake That's pretty cool but that's only on the Max. I, don't think they really made that clear.
A Banana a Day Keeps the Heart Disease Away
"What's the topic for this week this week? We are talking about bananas bananas. Yeah, you know, we always have that old adage of an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but we can actually add a banana into that too and banana a day may keep the heart disease away. Oh heart disease. Okay. Well, I'm listening bananas have a lot of cardiovascular health benefits because of the nutrients that are in them and here again kind of like wage. Talked about on a previous podcast of potatoes being banished right as a a food that is too high in whatever bananas have often been relegated to that category as well because they're always considered to be thinking that they're high in sugar and that sugar content is, you know too much for our you know, our blood sugar levels that but actually a bananas are actually in the office low glycemic category. Hm all different stages of ripeness. So for example, a under ripe banana, which we would basically call like a green banana. It's glycemic index level is a 30 which is really low to be low glycemic. You need to be between 1 and 55. So 30 is considered a very low glycemic if you have a slightly under ripe banana, that's yellow with a little bit of green. The GI is 42. Okay, and then in a ripe banana cake Can all yellow his fifty-one so you're kind of getting close to the 55, but it's still in the low range and then an overripe yellow flecked with brown has a GI of Forty-Eight. So all varieties of banana and no matter what type stage they're all low low glycemic. Hm. So I think that that's a you know, it's a myth that's been perpetuated and of course, you know, we have different sized bananas that you can buy. There's like really big ones during those small ones. So I always try to go with the medium sized banana cuz that's what these GI numbers are from. Well I can see why the internet just kind of grabs onto that. It's got a lot of sugar boy if we only didn't have bananas we would be better people. I don't know what the deal is but they really don't like bananas the internet. Yeah, and you know, we see that in low carb diets and those types of things that bananas are off the list but so here's a nutrient quality of bananas. They're high in vitamin K. 6 about 25% of our daily value comes from a banana and they also have vitamin C fiber 11% of our daily need for fiber is from a banana. And of course, they're very rich in potassium. Oh, that's that a medium sized banana has about four hundred milligrams of potassium. So I'm not good for our emotional health isn't that potassium is good for a number of things but really good for the cardiovascular system potassium is also an electrolyte so long we need it to have fluid balance within our body kind of has an electrolyte is something that has like a little electrical charge within the body. So it it actually takes care of our own nervous system all of the nerve impulses that we have. So potassium's important for that. But in terms of cardiovascular health are actually three different ways that bananas help. So the first one off It has to do with the potassium content because potassium is a mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. And so the inclusion of bananas can help prevent high blood pressure and protect against atherosclerosis, which is basically atherosclerosis is like when you have inflammation in the arteries and they constrict and oftentimes cholesterol buildup can occur because of that so that's really important a second cardiovascular benefit from bananas involves their content of something called sterols. So bananas are there's no fat food, but one type of fat they do have are small amounts of these compounds called sterols, like saitou sterile campus sterile and stigma sterile and they look structurally similar to cholesterol. So when we say sterile people might not think of cholesterol, but cholesterol is a type of sterile as well. They're they're all similar compounds month. Literally, so these plant sterols because they are structurally similar to cholesterol. They can block the absorption of dietary cholesterol. So if you if you have some cholesterol in your meal, but you also have eaten a banana along with it though sterols and the banana May block the absorption of some of that other cholesterol from your meal off then that helps keep your blood cholesterol levels in check. Wow, so that's and that's another you know, really important aspect of having plant Foods in the diet as a lot of plant Foods off kardos have sterols and them as well and that's like avocados are known to be a cholesterol-lowering food because of their sterile content and then a third type of cardiovascular benefit from banana juice is has to do with their fiber content. I probably talked about this before but bananas are really good source of something called soluble fiber which fiber dissolves in a Fluidity Waters that are you know, from foods that are coming through your digestive tract. So it forms kind of like a gel in a way. I always like to use an example of cuz people can use this visual what happens when you put chia seeds with water. They they absorb the water and they jell up they make like a almost like a gel and so that's happening in your intestine when you have soluble fiber in your diet. So bananas have a lot of soluble fiber and what that does is it attracts cholesterol to it and it also attracts even some of the carbohydrates and sugars from the meal. It tracks them into that gel and then they don't get absorbed into your bloodstream. They stay in the stool and then they are eliminated through the bowel movement rather than actually having them into the bloodstream. So that's how soluble fiber manages our blood sugar and manages our cholesterol levels. So that's you know, some bananas man. They're really good. Yep. Really good, they also so something really interesting with athletic performance that I found information on about the banana. So the name of a unique mix of vitamins minerals and the low glycemic carbohydrates making them a favorite fruit among athletes a study of distance cyclists found that eating the equivalent of about one half of a banana every 15 minutes of a 3-hour race was just as good as keeping energy levels steady as drinking an equivalent amount of a carbohydrate and minerals from a processed

Xbox Doesn't Need Bethesda on PlayStation
"One is one that was breaking as we went live from a little boy named Steven Tolo over a cocoon. He has a giant interview with Phil Spencer, covering all manner of xbox series x the future game pass you name it but he also talks to him about Bethesda. I'm calling this one xbox doesn't need Bethesda on playstation. We will start in progress than jump a bit further during our forty eight minute chat. We covered those machines, of course, the next gen ones and a lot more ballooning game file sizes, the Bethesda deal and how Microsoft plans do enable next Gen gaming on current Gen Consul first let's talk about xbox series snl. Going to talk that now, joining them deeper for the things of course, Stephen does great work. This is a fantastic interview Phil. You should go check it out in Kentucky. But jumping into the Bethesda stuff it's ought to talk to a console maker about launching two consuls at once, but it's even stranger to be talking to them about a game company they just bought for seven point, five, billion dollars such are the peculiar times we live in in September Microsoft said it was buying cinemax the parent company of Bethesda in software and other top-flight studios that makes the likes of fall out of that might make the likes of fallout the other schools in doom. The planned purchase Amelie bolstered Microsoft's roster of internal studios. The deal will cap off the company's generation long shopping spree in attempt to counter the reps of rival Sony and unintended Oh which have both been long regarded as having stronger internal game making operations. The expanded roster of games also gives Microsoft a lot more content to bundle into their popular netflix style game pass subscription service in offer the via. The company's game streaming service, which lets players access games remotely in play them on their phones tablets devices. Spencer. That said in previous interviews that existing deals involving xanax Games would still be honored suggesting something like the time traveling game death loop will still come I. Two five is previously announced beyond that though fans have been beyond by have been wondering whether it's a Max Games would go xbox NPC only in other words they've wondered if playstation would stop getting fall-outs in miss out on the sequel. I wondered that to quote, is it possible to recoup? A billion dollar investment. If you don't sell elder scrolls six on playstation I asked says Stephen Yes it's been spencer quickly replied then he paused. I don't WanNa be flip about that. This deal was not done to take away from another player based like that nowhere in the documentation that we put together was, how do we key players other players from playing these games? We want more people to be able to play games, not fewer people to be able to play to go play games but also say in the Model I'm not I'm just answering directly the question that you that you had when I think about where people are going to be playing the number of a and the number of devices that we had and we have cloud and. And Game Pass and our Council base I don't have to go ship those games on any other platform other than the platforms that we support in order to make. An order to kind of make the deal work for. US, whatever that means end quote. We do know that Microsoft has made big studio purchase. has made a big purchase and kept his new franchise multi-platinum formed before that's what they did with Mo Yang and it's game minecraft. So it wouldn't be wild to see at five on playstation five period for now Spencer said the platforms for future is games will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and even if they make the Games multi-platform, Spencer's team can still boast in advantage cinemax games could be sold at full price on playstation, but offered at a large discount on the xbox platform is part of the ten dollars a month game pass subscription, a killer deal that already grants players launched a access to every new Microsoft published game. That was lots of read only. I'm sorry to make you just sit there and listen, but it's context to argument. We've all been having on a variety of podcast what this deal actually means. Elaine, what do you think do we see Bethesda Games the CINEMAX games now xbox games on playstation five in the future I would assume. So just because of the like logistical crap. Back End. Anytime money is involved with anything games. You are guaranteed that there's GonNa be some exclusivity of some kind. So that's what I would assume but as a game developer like. Like how Abbas many platforms as our games can be on the better us because that means we're reaching the most people. I have heard you know people who are so vested in the xbox ecosystem. Danny on earlier I've heard him talk about I've heard Paris talk about it effort all manner of conversation about this, and it's interesting to see the different sides people go to. Of course, it'll be multi platform, and then of course, it won't be you have this investment you seven point five, billion dollars right? Like why would you ever give that up and I? I. Find Myself Torn because I can make a case either way if I was a betting man right now at the, we're not even into the next generation. We don't know how these systems are going to run away. We don't know who's going to be the industry leader in how game pass nuts out. So and so forth. I would say that, yes, you will see the Bethesda Games you think of your big ones you're fall-outs your sky rooms, the ones with giant fan bases on other platforms being in that being playstation of course, because I do think that what Stephen Hits on at the end here is so powerful that if you are a fallout fan, if you are Sky Room Fan in, you are die hard for that franchise. Wouldn't you WANNA play it in the best place in the cheapest place to play it like I. Feel like xbox is making this argument that even if they put it on. And it was coming to playstation five and it is seventy dollars or you can pay fourteen dollars game pass ultimate stream it wherever you want play all these other hundreds of great games do all these different things. Again, this is the C. B. Unabashed in your marketing. This is the council we designed it for. This is where there's bells and whistles and were able to make use of all the teraflops and everything else the xbox series x can do like. Even though your advertising than it is on playstation for me that makes sense to hey, this is why you need to buy an xbox. Am I wrong? I mean, from my developer standpoint I, don't like to be honest I don't. I don't care. Side. Please listen listen like when it comes to studios making games like regardless, we need to buy developer kids for all consoles. And to like look at it from the perspective of studio whether they are owned by a parent company or not. There is financial conversations any to be had what if cool you have seven billion dollars by being an exclusive of Microsoft right because of that whole transaction. But what if you have the door open for another seven billion? branching off from other different console. So why wouldn't you take the fourteen billion and just go with a seven? So like to me like a as a developer that's what I would think of That's all executive decisions by the way US developers have. frigging say in any of this. But I could definitely say from the developer perspective having franchises that have already been established like scarring and having a the ability to understand how they work in different consoles than. Or even importing that stuff to a very specific console that has very specific hardware and perhaps very specific requirements. That's definitely GONNA be a challenge for of studios and that happened with a PS three actually that I recently found out. That the PS three, that architecture was so difficult. Was Terrible. Exactly. It was so difficult that like games like there had really tough time studios making cancer, the PS three, which is now what makes sense that we can have backwards compatibility specifically with three because it was a frigging nightmare to to deal with on the back end so i. Was a great example of that. If you remember. Sky. Room. Right was incredibly broken the longer. You played the way that game watch compiled information eventually made it unplayable and drop the frame rate and it took them forever to fix. That wasn't a quick fix but it wasn't you're talking about of working with different architectures and trying to figure all this out. Yeah. So let's To me in my mind that is number one concern when it comes to all these franchises like is it possible to to do the franchise and Change Architecture of the entire game works so that it works on that council specifically or can we what we call re factoring, which is reusing things that have been done before can reactor so that we can continue to stay on the next generation of the councils that we work with before So it's it's a lot to. Think. About. Nearing, like. Many Kudos in the engineering teams all over the Games industry because they definitely have to deal with a lot of crap that they are not given credit for when it comes to figuring hundred. These Situations Making Games is incredibly difficult and I think all of us is fans. Yeah. You know it as being a developer eighty line meteorite like you see it from side that I only interview people talk over drinks with people about like I hear these horror stories and can't imagine a day to day, and then not even a removed the horror stories from it just in general making magic from nothing like making games is a magical thing and we totally take that for grant. We totally don't give that credit, take it for granted. Yeah, and sit there like, Oh, well, why did they just hit the button in Puerto over and make this work and how hard could it be to go between the PS five in an xbox series x Can Be the difference of the night and day Ryan because I terry. Systems are to hardware. So

Stiffen the stance or the European bloc and particularly over the row over fishing. This led to a response for Mr Johnson threatening to walk away from the talks. Why has this decision been made completely out of the blue? Boys. Johnson had set a deadline of October, the fifteenth for a breakthrough. In, the negotiations in order for them to continue this has not happened basically. Going to be some woods agreed for them to continue of them pull the whole house of cards down now. One with the British demands was an intensification of talks. This had been proposed and flashed around Brussels. But when the summit conclusions came out, there was no mention of that. The government in Britain responded by saying that we were going to start prepare now for a no deal. So does this main? A deal is completely off the table? No. It doesn't mean that could mean that. But what happened Lychee now after Bush Johnson has made a statement is that the European Commission President Sheila Underlay? tweeted that a team from Brussels would be heading to London to intensify the talks. This was a key British demand. So it looks like there's been a political spat between the leaders at political level. But now that the Are, trying to keep the show on the road if we are to leave without a deal what are the big knock on effects of that, we could see here in the UK economically, they could potentially be catastrophic. You'll certainly talking about businesses, facing tariffs and also quotas. That could also be food shortages. Some shorter particular fresh food shortages in the UK I for weeks even before the threat of a no deal ruptured lunchtime the boss of TESCO's was saying that they could be some future tages. If there literally is no deal. Then obviously, the likelihood of those would increase dramatically shortly optimistic Johnson spoke that the pound fell against the euro, which is a sign of concerns. The next step is really the me t next week to see whether they eat negotiators and the okay Shakespeare's could make a break food. The meeting may not happen, but it looks like it will happen and is imposed. Sides interest to strike a deal both will play hard ball and often agreements are really only reach five minutes to midnight when both parties are staring into the abyss and the they know that unless a deal now things can get very very messy. These talks have been stalled for months. Now with a the side, not really bunching at all is there any sense of what the outcome could be? Is Too hard to tell given. The economic damage in Odio could calls and Boris Johnson will be fully aware of this and Michael is you would expect a deal to be reached but e you leaders they got the stronger hand and so we'll trying really go for the best possible for them. and. That will put pressure and strain on the British government because they really don't want to make many more concessions especially with so many hard line brexit is in the Tory party.
Trump lies at town hall
"Stage, not with the same inquisitor. Let's take a look at what happened with those town halls with KCBS political analyst Mark Sandalow joining me now in the KCBS Ring Central News line. I suppose you had to be a true political junkies. Go watch both of these mark, especially here because and then recording one of watching it later. Yeah, I tried stand toe watching both simultaneously. No way. You have to be a lunatic to try that and a little tick to do what I did, instead. Which is I watch one and and then the other. This was not just two different networks and Canada, Canada too different. Universes. I mean, it's you know, if you like police shows Biden was sort of NC I trump was a cop. It was on Cove it alone. I mean, covert alone, the president said. First boy said he couldn't remember if you got tested before the last debate, which I mean that was the rule of the last debate. In fact, he was hospitalized a few days later, but he said he often get tested every day, and he just couldn't remember if he had that day. He said that you know the lockdowns across the country are aimed at hurting him politically, that he's been pretty pretty much ahead of the scientists on this all the way. But he didn't want to warn everyone in dire terms because he didn't want to panic people, But he figured he saved about two million lives. The most remarkable thing, he said on covert, I thought was twice he repeated. A mangled way of looking at a misinterpreted CDC report twice yesterday, he said. 85% of people who wear masks, get Cove it and let me tell you what otherwise would have 300 million cases in the country. And you know what it was, And he said this earlier in the day, too, when he's referring to is a CDC study that was even looking at masks, but it looked at a couple 100 people for other symptoms. Of the couple 100 people who had Cove it, they ask him questions and of those people. It turns out that 85% of them had said that they had worn masks at some point in the period last two weeks. The idea. The president still spreading the idea that mask might be bad and not good for Cove. It isn't pretty big contract to Biden, who said if you were president, he would certainly look into some sort of nationwide mandate, if possible, both for masks And maybe even for a vaccine. We go step further on that 85% thing That is, ah, line of B s that has been spread by distant disinformation sources for weeks now, mark and you can go anywhere. Just follow the CDC threat on Twitter and look at some of the poster and you'll see this put up there by people who've created stories around the look legit. It's totally false as you just pointed out, And so obviously this is the echo chamber in which the president is gathering the information he uses International Forum. And I mean you could again you can create Echo chambers that convince you that you're a war between the states and Mexico is a good idea or that tariff between us and China. Those are policy debates that required judgment. This is simple math and common sense. If 85% of Americans who wear masks head Cove it we would have over three. We'd have heard immunity would have over 300 million cases in this country right now, which clearly is in the case. The president did it again. On another question. He was asked about queuing on this. Ah, this conspiracy or into group that believes that there is a tonic pedophilia ring run by Democrats and the deep state that President Trump has been sort of a hero by fighting back against them. So Trump was saying Trump, who did renounce white supremacy last night. I would ask you not renounce. Q and on, he said. I have no idea what that is. And then Savannah Guthrie was saying, Of course he did. I mean, you you know what that is, And you've been asked about this before. You haven't read anything about it, he says now always heard that they apparently opposed Peter pedophilia. And he opposes pedophilia is well, thiss goes on. He sent a tweet out, which suggested that Osama bin Laden might be alive and the Joe Biden was somehow responsible for killing Navy seals to hide the fact that the entire attack on Osama bin Laden was a front Asked about that last night, he said, Oh, no, no, no, no, He's not saying that's the case. He's just retweeting with somebody else put out there. And they was. But service president states If you re tweet something, don't you think people will believe you? And he said, Look, that's not for me. That's not for May. I just put it out there and you decide again. We're so far outside the bounds off normal debate, lower taxes, higher taxes, you know, Obama care or more privatized insurance. I mean, these are the kind of things that most debates will be made up. Not shouldn't be a headline that the president renounced white supremacy, which certainly was one of the headlines last night. Mark Sandalow are KCBS political analyst live from Washington. And now the money watch Report. With

C-SPAN suspends Scully after he admits to lie about hack
"So last night fence we had the two competing town halls and Joe Biden got a two hour town hall. President Trump got a 40 minute town hall because the 1st 20 minutes of his town hall were spent arguing with Savannah Guthrie, who thought she was there to debate the president. But what last night was supposed to be was supposed to be nice to be a town hall with both candidates on the same stage, which could have happened last night and should have happened last night. But that was a goat rodeo. And so it didn't happen last night, thanks to the council on the presidential debates. S so instead, we have the two competing town halls. Now. C Span's Steve Sculley was supposed to be moderating that town. Holly's has been one of the moderators of the town hall That was supposed to happen last night. And the whole thing fell apart and part of this whole thing falling apart. You know the president was was the president, you know? Could he be there without being a super spreader they were calling on Biden's campaign, you know, apparently didn't want in there. They only wanted him there. If he was encased in like the boy in the plastic bubble like John Travolta, you know all these ridiculousness, but Steve's going one of getting caught up in this Because President Trump criticized Steve Scully as a never Trumper And Scully tweets at Scaramucci Anthony Scaramucci build Trump aide Should Scaramucci Should I respond to Trump? And everybody is thinking. Oh, he meant his put this editor a D. M. He meant to message right scare a Scaramucci directly, but instead he tweeted it out. And that, of course, caught everyone's attention. So in response to that, Scully says, My Twitter account was hacked, and we all laughed at it because it was like the third time. He said that his Twitter account has been hacked. And every time it happens, his Twitter account goes away. And then it comes back once the controversial wait. I'm sorry. There were multiple times that he did that. Yeah, there was more than what there was more that I have. No, it's okay. I didn't. I just didn't realize that okay? Yeah, he's done a multiple times hilarious even worse. Yeah, so so his account goes away, and then it comes back. So that's why I think a lot of people were a little little suspicious about him, saying that his account was hacked yet again. Well, turns out he could not keep up the lie, and he has admitted that his Twitter account was not hacked, he said. I falsely claim that my Twitter account had been hacked. So he has now been suspended as the political editor Force C span after he admitted that his Twitter feed was hacked. And you know what part of me feels like. Okay, good for him. He admitted it. How many of these people especially on the left will ride that denial down into the grand and into their graves? Because they say, Hey, it worked for joy Reid. So it'll work for me and what is left. Do they just deny and double down on denying double down and then they dare you to continue to come after them and most on the right, Just go OK and they walk away, but that didn't work for Steve
Blackpink: Light Up the Sky
"I watched this interesting netflix documentary last night it's called black pink light up the sky and tells the story of the South Korean girl group Black Pink. So it's all access documentary covering four years since black pinks explosive debut in two thousand, sixteen with video footage from. Your training days intimate looks into their day to day life behind the scene stories interviews, and it really does follow the trials and tribulations of being a K pop star the recording process of their album, and then one of the members pursuing a solo album and culminates with their two thousand nineteen coachella performance I. Didn't really know much about the K pop world. And these girls are really impressive. They're so polished their English is impeccable. Some of them grew up outside of the country and then moved to South Korea to be part of this K pop. Process this training process. These schools are no joke. You've seen documentaries about bands probably boy bands and they have nothing on these girls. For years and years, they would do three to four dance classes day vocal courses. Like an all. All encompassing life of a pop star every day all day long they live in dormitories. They still do actually these four girls and they seemingly have great friendships but you don't know how much it is totally true because. As the process of training the documentary is so So polished and controlled. And I just worry if these girls and a couple of years from, we're going to be like I went off the deep end. My life was so controlled I can't take it anymore. They're wearing luxury items in these interviews be you can't help but wonder how much of the money they're actually taking home with them. They have had so many people with hands in the pot. They have had trainers, choreographers and management and publicist marketing people, and then you go to their shows this. Crew this really large crew who makes it all happen so I'm just wondering again years into the future what they're going to say about how much money they actually got from this whole process, but it really shows you the difference between South Korea and America because Luke Roman. That creep that backstreet boys in the sink, he may have thought that he had the greatest training program in the world I'm telling you these Koreans got nothing on them like they're running a tight ship and that those k pop songs are pretty catchy I have to say so check that out. It's called Black Pink light up the
UK government under pressure for COVID-19 strategy
"Emergency covid downs across the north of England to put the division between Westminster and the rest made Steph into shot relief. Mass journalists voters across the North voicing their anger being dictated to as city leaders discovered happening towns through front pages, twitter blogs. According to Lisa Nanday, the government doesn't even know where weakness and a new report by End Child poverty was just came out says that even before the pandemic child poverty was rocketing in the north and Midlands eight of the ten. Hardest hit areas is England less the union fracturing. Alex Scotland Wales Northern Ireland each have their own approaches to covert the government is trying to centralize control of England even though English, cities and regions were desperate for the more path more local strategies has that approach failed? Is it going to have to be more more regional? I think I don't think it's a one ONS official question. For instance, when it comes to things like testing trays I, think to have a national overarching. Sort of strategy is a disaster because obviously local people will know how to do that better. But when it comes to for instance. You know. Contagion rules. I think collaboratively in simplicity of the message is so key to their success that having a sort of different set of rules complicated rules depending on one postcode or another I think that will fall down I. I can't see that looking. I'm Scott this perceived as doing much better than England, and Cave in Wales to the extent. Are. They really doing better. Do they just have? To they have better messaging that Nicholas Sturgeon is just somebody is more trustworthy Boris Johnson. Better messaging is part of doing better. Possibly one of the key banks. I had to look at a fairly comprehensive study by the Center for Constitutional Change that looked at the totality of what we loosely termed as the first wave and found a covert destroyed trajectories peaked sooner in both Scotland and Wales and came down foster. So one could say that national OAKTON, which came too late for England came even more disastrously nights from Scotland and Wales. But death rates were significantly above national average for England and consistently. Wales and Scotland so I, think yes they have objectively done better. I had Frank Cultural Boys on the Today program saying he actually missed springs national lockdown lockdown gold because the whole country was in the same boat. Matt downs are driven by local infection rates but they all currently in the north I'm is this crisis sort of making the relationship between national local government, the north and the south worse or at least more more strained yeah. Undoubtedly I mean he's also contains enormous opportunities in some ways for Metro Mas- in the North it's interesting that you've seen. You've seen the London Meh. Saudi con his authority has really diminished because he's been basically take files funding in which he greatly depends is being held. So tightly in could be manipulated so much by central government that he doesn't have as much leeway as he used to. Conversely in the north, they know that they can They can basically demand certain things in exchange for cooperation about Kobe measures. So this puts the whole metro messing I mean previously, they were seen as you know, a Nice Democrat Nice Democratic Nice to have but not something that had genuine power, and now of course, because of covid they do it's also worth. Mentioning that Johnson himself has no real idea think of how to hold north-and-south together. If you read his conference speech last week, the only mention of the North was north London in the context of a cultural jibe, the only mention of Scotland and Wales where in the context of wind, power. he really doesn't think about this stuff any session he hasn't given any attention to how to negotiate this new difficult and fragile relationship a rope, the prominence of some of these regional mez Andy Burnham Steve. Rotherham. that. Make the case for a larger. Merrill based system in this country when you labor introduced mayors lately took on in some places and then and then Nelson others. But you think they'll be more appetite for these figures. I mean it's it's it's hard to say because there wasn't a great dealer appetite for them when they were introduced I suspect because of their dynamics that was thought to see here the sort of purchase pull dynamics with the man's the big regional setting themselves up as defenders of particular cities or city regions against the hostile government. That's a great dynamic building, your legitimacy with voices building a profile, and it may well be the other places. Look at this and think well, I'd rather like to have an undefined and in my case, my sanity or Steve Rotherham because at the Reimann way rose again knocks I've by government, but there's no one in our corner as I think he could. Well. Stimulate that kind of demand the difficulty is no everywhere has like an obvious relation sensitive build a city region around. So I wonder what will happen for the places you know those rather I was towns That was so crucial in the twenty nine election How would this kind of system worked for them?
THE 7 STEPS TO CREATING A WORLD CLASS SALES CULTURE
"He Nigel welcome back to the show as a way of getting started gives update. Well, it's been a busy year working on a book that comes out in a few weeks. It's called a revenue harvest, the sales leaders, ALMANAC for planning to perfect year, and so spent a couple years living on a farm. Some of your guests might remember the last time we were together we talked about moved from the city to the farm, and it's really a made undeniable to parallels between farming and leading a sales team, and so the book is unequivocally for sales leaders, executives and investors, but it's written through the Lens of what I believe might be one of the oldest professions are. We talking about sales, right? Yeah. We're talking about. Sales. But everyone's got the hunter mentality of the hunter mindset. That's. This this isn't about hunter gatherer. It's not about that. It's about. I'm seeing in the marketplace more and more companies, executives and investors looking for some quick fix some fad, some piece of technology that's going to change things and I'm looking at all my farming friends that drive their GPS guided combines. Still. Say it's still too hot. It's going to be too cold. There's going to be too much rain. Sometimes, they're going to be all these things I can't control. And there's not really a piece of technology. This can fix that for you know and so it's It's it's a book that says, listen there are timeless principles. That will get you through any selling year. And if you ignore them. Cautionary Tale. If few northern, there's no piece of technology. There's no there's no peace of fad this going to get you through it. You won't have a long career that's it and are kind of mammal brain looks for that quick fix that you know that quick meal instead of. That because the farmer mentality is if you don't. Plant. If you don't fertilize if you don't tend and you don't, we'd you don't harvest. If you don't work. Every day. I. I come from a family of farmers and you know it's up at the same time every day it's doing the stuff that you don't want to do every day. And pays off. Instead of just that end of the quarter rush and what I used to call kind of the. Roller Coaster. The quarters over people go on vacation they go to club they have kickoff they have all these meetings and everything. And all of a sudden time just goes away time doesn't stop. Right Try Time doesn't stop and. Speaking, of Tom, one thing that I see and I want to hear about your perspective on this. It's time started you're on the clock far in advance before you started doing the work. So the way that manifest is we don't finish our forecast until February. Don't give it to the team until the end of February, then we've changed their comp plans to match this new forecast. The board approved nobody on the sales team has seen it given the insight to, and now we're asking them to go do something differently without any thought to how this might affect them whether or not it's going to fly in. Oh. By the way we're already behind on the first quarter. So what type of energy does that inject into your? Then on the back side of that because we've been. So late in presenting the plan positioning the plan preparing the team, we're behind the eight ball prospecting. We're behind the eight ball on identifying the strategic accounts taking new products to market. So what's going to happen is at the end of the year when everyone is tired and wants to rest I'm anxious sales leader that's asking you not to go on Christmas vacation. Females on Thanksgiving Day eroding my credibility as a leader, and it's a perfect video for you to do walking around on the phone. You know what? What your fans now it's Thanksgiving I'll get it in. Yeah. I just did one that set every sales year ever. And because this is the time it happens what do we have? You know people take a little bit of vacation than their sales kickoff. Then somebody get comes sick to sales kickoff. Everyone is sick. Next week people are doing good. Two weeks later they get a Qbr or you know the year planning they don't get their complement until late. February. So they're kinda slacking like do I work on this too I not work on this and they don't even get settled in until March. One is over. And then all the accelerators are all back in loaded. So people were kind of hedging through the whole process that they sandbag into next year. What are they try and cram it into this year? And all this gamesmanship that didn't exist before, and now because we've missed Q. One, there's questions about should we re forecast another boys of up and it's all this nonsense it's doom loop. It is a doom loop and I think it's getting worse because too much technology put in and everyone's looking at the output at the technology and started talking to the reps talking to each other

"In May of two thousand four. Police pulled up floorboards in northwest Detroit. Freud home but we did not uncover any evidence relevant to the investigation on James Hoffa in twenty twelve lease dug up backyard in Roseville. Say it has no credibility at all in twenty thirteen acting on a tip from our boss. Tony's really the FBI Doug on a forum on you'll road in Oakland Township all day long. The HOOPLA grew and grew once word spread. The date for Hoffa's remains had begun this again coming up empty. Why have there been so many seemingly credible tips? Scott Bernstein says it's because the Jack Aloni pros there's launched a campaign of misinformation to cover up the perfect crime so I believe the Jack Loney brothers were incredibly proud and they really war the fact that they pull this crime of the century off so successfully they really ward as a badge of honor and they really got their kicks out of tweaking people about it and you know my research tells me that. They launched a disinformation Asian campaign. From nine hundred seventy five and into the two thousands when they both passed away where they would you know intentionally tell thirty people thirty thirty different things and both billion. Tony knew that they were. They were tweaking they were they were gas lighting eighteen. Let's focus on three possibilities number one Scott Bernstein and Keith Corbett former assistant. US Attorney have come to the same conclusion. Okay rhenium Traumat- Hamtramck is widely known for police bakeries. But that's not why we're here. Today does not not much to see here now but this used to be eight. Two one five Moran in Nineteen Seventy Five. It was a model trash company. It was called central sanitation. It was owned by two Detroit mob lieutenants Peter Fatality and Jimmy Clause Rhino and they had these gigantic compresses for cardboard where they compress impress. Three four five tons of parboil at one time in shredded down to little pieces of paper and people were not thinking in one thousand nine hundred seventy five of DNA EH so full body in there. Just get crushed up in into pricing. A couple of months after half disappeared the place burning down. What a coincidence coincidence and you know the people in the insurance policy paid off you know and Everybody was happy then will dare has done his own research and says there's no way. The body was disposed of its central sanitation. Essential Sanitation was dismissed by the FBI in a Nineteen seventy eight in a very open statement. Where the FBI said this is not what we believe? We check this out and we have completely rejected. The central sanitation theory possibility number two a new character enters the story. A small time on criminal named Donovan Wells who died this past year in two thousand six and FBI search focused on a farm in Milford Michigan once owned by Union Leader and Hoffa enemy rolling McMaster Donovan Wells and his wife lived on that farm. Back in nineteen seventy five on the day of the murder Don Wells wife Ana. She's at the farmhouse. She's in the kitchen and she's washing dishes looking out towards Pontiac Jack Trail and she sees two cars come streaming out pontiac trail make a hard right into this dirt road into through this dirt road which goes all the way into the back of the farm and don well sold the FBI at the back of the farmer. These guys was a pre dug hole redouble so Monica Wells sees McMaster and she tells him a story talk about cheese. It was a strange thing. These cars came roaring up at McMaster. He said he basically threatened her. You know blondes. Who talked to you? Brush don't get old. You know so. He made some crack of it at one time. Donovan Wells was represented by a lawyer named named Jim Ellesmere. He says wells told him a similar story on July thirtieth nineteen seventy five in that farmhouse kitchen with his wife. Donovan Wells was convinced he saw Jimmy Hoffa's body getting buried. He observes out the kitchen window of mcmasters farmhouse. A Eh Beckel digging and then awaits sheet and Abbadi dropped into the whole. I believe that Hoffa was murdered on that. I think the cars roaring up. I think that was those were the death was those were the death. Awful is one of those cars and he was murdered the F. B. I.. Dug Up that farm and found nothing but Dan Mold Daya throws an interesting wrinkle into that episode. He says Donovan in Welsh showed him a diagram of the farm with the exact location of that whole worry claim to have seen someone dump a body a diagram the FBI used to pick their spot for the two thousand six excavation. And I'm looking at. I'm looking at Dan's diagram. The Got South in North Mixed up the barn was over here. They dug the averted the they adverted the NAP. The diagram that dod had dropped for them didn't bring him up from lexicon and they dug in the wrong place. Does that mean HOFFA's body might be buried on that farm and Milford Modena's says he now believes the body was is there originally but that it was then taken to a landfill in New Jersey operated by a guy named film of Scotto Mascot was a soldier in the East Coast Genovese crime family and he told Dan Moday about a day in nineteen seventy five when his friend Hitman.

He wanted the power back in his hands Presidency Agency of the teamsters union and he believed he could get it but the union offered no support. His longtime organized crime associates told him he should take his pension inching and retire but he had no interest in that Hossam knew that the only way back to power was if he could convince east coast. Crime and Labor boss Tony Only Provenzano to back him. What Hoffa didn't know was that a decision had already been made? My bosses believed Hoffa was going to share their secrets with the the FBI.

"December twenty third nineteen seventy-one Hoffa walked free from federal prison after after serving four years. Nine months and sixteen days he was going home greeted by his wife Josephine. It was possible I never gave up hope. And my grateful thanks to President Nixon for making this possible has been home. The family the deal Lakhova out of the Union for ten years but he was not about to wait so he began work on a lawsuit to lift his commutation restrictions at the same time he met with mob bosses all across the country Campaigning politicking politicking. Trying to convince them that it's in their best interest to put him back in power. There muscle had served him well for thirty years. But but not this time and he realizes that the mob doesn't want him back that they don't want him as the president again and they're all telling him Jimmy. You had a great run and we love you and we'll do whatever we can for you in your retirement. Khaw had no interest in retirement or money the union gave him a one point seven million dollar pension payout with a message. It's time for other people to grab the baton and it's time for you to take a seat on the bench without being the president of the teamsters without being the boss of organized labor in the world. He wasn't who he wanted to be so he goes to plan. The HOFFA thinks if he can make peace with east coast crime boss and teamster Tony Provenzano that support. It could boost him back to the Union presidency. 'cause Provenzano controls the entire Delegation on the East Coast. You controls the voting block. That HOFFA needs to win back the presidency. A meeting was set on neutral turf and it was a bit of a disaster. Where you who had both men meeting in a hotel suite and Miami and supposedly grabbing hold each other and trying to choke the life out of each other before they were separated? So that didn't work new plan also goes on a media tour Going on a number of national television broadcast broadcast interviews with newspapers and it was a full fledged campaign to sway the public into sway the media. Uh that he needs to come back into the teamsters presidency and that his new mandate is to clean up the teamsters that he's going to go in there and he's going to get rid of all the bad influence organized crime influence. You brought him in the first place and you think that amongst the rank and file you're still number one. I would say there's no problem expression that I get from around the country problem. I think if you go out and check the average local union or the membership. You'll find this true. So will you make the prediction that Jimmy Hoffa will be president of the teamsters union again in nineteen seventy-six biting fight near it on my restriction which I expect my lawyers Tommy is Eighty five percent possibly. Yes expect that he was playing a card and speaking to the mob through the media and Dan Distant. Sit very well with them. They don't like being threatened. Here's former assistant. US Attorney Keith. Corporate you know after Nixon quite quite him and he found out he couldn't get back into the union he was gonNA take every effort. He could do that and in order to do that. He had threatened to reveal the mobs involvement with the teamsters You know the fact that say the central state South East South West area fund which funded about two thirds of the casinos knows in Vegas was nothing but a candy store for the mind and I think that a number of people from Frank Fitzsimmons and Iraqi teamster officials to organized realized crime figures who control locals significant portions of the teamsters union. were very apprehensive. About what half of my do at this point I believe Hoffa went to the FBI went to the US Attorney's office and made a made a deal a quid pro under the table. You help get V. Restriction from my commutation lifted so I can run in nineteen seventy six and I will give you information on organized crime and when I get into office. I will purge the organized crime influence from the teamsters whether Hoffa actually went to the FBI or it was merely a rumor. It doesn't matter. He had information to sell and believe that gave him leverage to negotiate but the threat to his former mafia collaborators cost him his life.

I mean they're going to go wherever the money is. The money is to support pro labor.

There's been a lot of charges is that you have had affiliations with hoodlums and underworld elements while there isn't any question about that. I keep my finger on the pulse of what's happening in in this country and the best answer macgyver so hoodlums and what have you is a fact that ever strike we have With employers are really WANNA fight they they revert to hiring huddles and unless we know who our enemy is. Unless we're in a position to do something about it you'll lose your strike. It was a tough off balance for HOFFA. He felt he needed the mob in order to do the work he believed him on behalf of the members of his union. I don't doubt that his intentions Chins were very altruistic. When he began his rise through the unions but I think very quickly he understood her learn whereas bread was buttered and knew that the more he got in bed with the mob the further he was going to rise in the more power our he can attain and at the end of the day? That's what he loved. He loved the teamsters he loved being the face the teamsters but he loved the power our he was power obsessed and he was also great at what he did.

And you remember the name in remembers this details about them in terms of cultivating in speaking language of an emotionally connecting Working Class people.

"Jimmy Hoffa was born in nineteen thirteen and he grew up fast. He was seven years old when his father other died of lung disease likely poisoned by years of work in the coal mines. Brazil Indiana Jimmy learned early. How hard life could be on a working family? His mother moved Jimmy and his three siblings to Detroit where she hoped to find work when he was fourteen. Jimmy dropped out of school and got a job as a stock boy boy department store and then a few years later came the crash. People were in misery economic misery that's industrial relations professor Merrick Masters. You know you look at it. You had a third of the nation on employed you had had the recovery which was under way then but not one that it was nearly as impactful enough to bring us back to where we were before the depression and people were very insecure. You're and they were struggling on a day-to-day basis. So the future. Look too many of them very unpromising. A friend of the Hoffa family told Jimmy. You should get the job in the food business. Everybody's GonNa always eat so. He kind of talked his way into a job at the Kroger Company. He was sixteen years old but convinced them. He was eighteen and got a job on the loading dock. The voice you're about to hear next is an actor but the words are Jimmy. HOFFA's from an autobiography released a few months after we disappear we will paid thirty two cents. An hour problem was that we only got paid for the time actually work during twelve hour shifts. And sometimes we'd sit around for five or six hours waiting to be called for a forty eight hour week. We could make fifteen dollars and thirty six cents but the trouble was we had to put in seventy. DT Eighty hours to get in those forty eight hours and those were long hard hours laboring under a foreman who was a tyrant a solid gold son of a bitch. Actually really he was called the little bastard. By all the men this guy was a real sadist thoroughly enjoyed screaming out commands and then cursing a man and threatening threatening to fire him. If he didn't move quick enough it was a little tin Jesus in the warehouse. The only time he smiled one he had fired somebody quickly. We began to talk union with the night crew. Although we knew we would have to wait for exactly the right moment. A Little Basset helped more than he knew early one morning and May. Am One thousand nine hundred. Eighty one two waiting workers went outside to eat at lunch cut when they came back. You fire them. In front of the whole crew mm-hmm several nights later came the perfect opportunity for Hoffa to air the worker's grievances some cold storage box cars carrying fresh strawberries robberies had just arrived at the warehouse once the cars were open and the strawberries were exposed to the air. They would start to spoil immediately where it was passed around among long the men to follow our lead. We waited until we unloaded less than half the strawberries. And I put down the crate. I was carrying and walked to the other end of the dock. The rest of the one hundred and seventy five men in the crew put down their crates. Two and stood around little. Bastard couldn't believe as I turned turn white and then red and I thought hopefully he was going to have a heart attack and he started screaming. But the hell you guys think you're doing it back to work out dammit or every one of your best defiant hell with you I shouted. We want Mr Bluff. Mr Bluff is the night warehouse manager. Here's here's this ruckus happening out on the loading docks Jimmy Hoffa who now is actually eighteen. Years Old is speaking for the whole group demanding changes he gets a meeting with program management and negotiates our one page contract which in Detroit at the time was a major achievement management agreed to work out a call time and guaranteed it at least a half day's pay they also set aside and eating room for the workers and deprive the foreman of the right to summarily fire. Any worker and so began again. Jimmy Hoffa's career as a labor organizer and next thing I did was to bring the men on the day shift into our little union and in these efforts and in the continuing meetings with Kroger officials I began to learn the basics of union. Work that when you talk to workers you better look them in the eye and know what you're talking about it because they pretty quick Telefoni word spread pretty fast.

After leading that I strike at Kroger Hoffa was recruited by a fledgling little union with a dwindling membership called the international brotherhood of teamsters. The union formed way back at the beginning of the twentieth. Century was for men who drove wagons pulled by horses but then came the motorized truck. Union membership began to grow though it was still small in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. They're only one hundred thousand teamsters nationally. Let me five hundred in Detroit. Office jobless simple get those numbers. At first job was organizing the rest of Kroger's workers there are about four hundred and various other departments beside the loading dock and got them all and it was at Kroger's that I went through my first strike. It was a long one and the company has all of them. Did in those days sent a wave of strikebreakers against us. We had a number of knockdown bloody battles and six times. I was beaten up up. My Scalp was laid open wide enough to require stitches after organizing. Kroger Hafa set out to recruit big rigged drivers who hold new cars from Detroit to dealers all across the country. I I tried to talk to them at the loading docks like most. Everybody Else Elson those hard times. They were afraid of management and losing their jobs so I devised a new plan of attack.

"Rick called me on the phone after the hearing. He was furious. He's told by his attorney how it went in Rick blame the negativity of the Florida clemency board on the media coverage. He was certain that newspaper stories that went public hours before the hearing in our video camera and Associated Press video camera that were inside the clemency hearing boardroom put the board members in a position to have to be tough on crime tough on Rick Rick was insistent that if his commutation was denied he would be the media's fault because of its decision to cover his hearing publicly. The wait began. Fourteen long and agonizing days later, Rix attorney received a letter in the mail. It was only two sentences long dear Mr Cot camp executive clemency board at its hearing on March thirteenth two thousand nineteen took. Your client's case under advisement and is subsequently denied his request for commutation of sentence. According to the current rules of executive clemency. Your client maybe eligible to reapply for clemency on March thirteen two thousand and twenty four. Rickaby out long before that is scheduled release is Tolbert twenty six two thousand and twenty not talk to Rick says the decision came down. But before the hearing he told me he is prepared to do the entire sentence. If he must and each day he will look for because while he cannot change the past.

"Bars taken off the street. Mr. were she has spent his entire adult life in prison yet even while in prison in the witness protection program, he continued to help long for help put away twelve corrupt public officials and after thirty one years in prison. I think it's fair to say that Mr. where she has paid his debt to society. And then some frankly, I don't think the tax payers Florida benefit by him being behind bars. One more day. He's been a model prisoner has an incredible support group, and I'm really blown away frankly by his positive attitude considering all that he has been through. And I believe if given a second chance, there's no doubt in my mind, Mr. where she will be a model citizen and governor with your permission. I would ask Herman groman to now. Speak your remember her from operation backbone? Good morning. Thank you. Thank you for having me. He was the lead agent in the effort to bus dirty cops and mayor Coleman Young's brother-in-law Willie Bolson who's protecting drug shipments in the early nineties in Detroit a dozen people were arrested and convicted all because Rick was willing to watch for an undercover FBI agent posing as a Miami drug dealer looking to bring cocaine shipments into Michigan groman promised Rick. You would repay him by doing everything and anything he could to win is released from prison. So I'm here today on my own free will. I'm not under subpoena. And I'm here because I believe that a great injustice to Richard worship junior has been done by the government groman focused on where she's invaluable informant help to law enforcement in Michigan is a fourteen year old teenager and as an inmate in the nineteen nineties after his drug conviction. He supported the role of an undercover agent who was introduced to these corruptly sophists, and as a result eleven or twelve of these police officers in some additional public officials were convicted and receive substantial prison sentences thirty plus years, they are out, but groman never mentioned Rix crime in Florida or how he has repented or help law enforcement since committing the car theft ring crime in Florida in two thousand six with the ten minute time. Limit closing in Rick's team, suddenly stopped groman in mid sentence. Do we have another agent? You do you guys? You guys have a couple more minutes that FBI agent was. Schwartz and I've been associated with the FBI for forty seven years. He stood up and explained he was the lead on the Johnny curry drug organization case a major drug bust that came about because then fourteen year old Rick worship became friends with the Curry's and fed. The FBI information that led to police rates and the fall of the criminal organization and during my time, I have come to know Richard were she for the last thirty two years. He and I have had two conversations each week for thirty two years during that period. I have come to know him as somebody who's sincere. Who's honest who has never lied to me about anything. We've spoken over the over the time period about a number of different events current events. How he would handle the situation his contributions to society, and I fully. Recommend him for. Clemency. He's contributed greatly to law enforcement. I challenge anybody to tell me one prisoner who has contributed more to law enforcement than this, man. It was an emotional plea. But again, no mention of Rick's car-theft involvement in Florida or how Rick is a better person today. No mention that every year for the past five years. Rick has helped organize a food drive that feeds the poor and the Detroit neighborhood he grew up in no mentions of the numerous pieces of artwork. Rick is drawn and donated to various charities the Florida clemency board jumped in and the hearing took a quick turn. Here's newly elected governor and clemency board member. Ron santa's. I appreciate that. But isn't I mean, he was committing crimes in prison? Correct. I mean in early two thousands. He was involved with the multi-state auto theft ring that was moving stolen cars and cocaine from Miami up to Virginia. So he had been helping you guys and then turned around and engage in additional criminal misconduct. And that's the reason why he's in Florida prison. Correct. That's true. Okay. That's true. I appreciate his health. But I think camps at you need to take a look at the totality over the last thirty two years of everything that he has done and contributed. I think that's fair. But I think that you know, when he's described as a model prisoner a model prisoner. Does it commit additional felonies in prison? I mean, I think that's just he's he's thinking undermines the case that try to say that had any tickets while he's been in prison agent Schwartz pointed out despite breaking the law from behind bars that one time Rick has never been a problem for prison officials in more than thirty years due to the witness protection program. He's been transferred to thirteen different prisons and each and every time he's been transferred. I've received telephone calls from the his handler saying why is this guy here? But the board made it clear they were more interested in the crime. Rick did commit while in prison is anyone have any questions or Florida attorney general Ashley moody is it is true that most of your involvement with him deals with his charges and sentenced and Michigan is that correct? That's true. And then when he was transferred to Florida and housed in prison here, which is when he. Did the multi-state over one hundred car grand theft auto wing from prison. Correct. And that's what he received five years in prison in Florida for keep in mind. When was that yet? When was that a yes? I think so you didn't have any dealings with him or hand in his regards to the theft drink from prison in Florida. And in on that Senate important to know one moment when I'm still asking you a question on that sentence. He received five years and was given credit for already for four hundred eighty eight days on a five year sentence for multi-state over one hundred and fifty car grand theft ring from Florida. And you didn't have any hand in that particular case. Agent. Groman jump back up to try and right the ship. You know, I'd I'd like to address that if I made sure I was still in the FBI at that at that point. And I was contacted by Florida authorities. So when I talked to wishing following that I said, what did you do? He immediately confessed to it. I wrote that report up based on his confession and submitted to the Miami office when I asked him what his involvement was in this case, he told me that he had very minimal involvement. The investigation showed that it he provided. I believe one vehicle that turned out to be stolen to his sister and his mother and Michigan. That's what I was told with the ten minute time window now past former FBI agent. Herb groman made one final plea. This kid is no angel but he's not a kid anymore. He has served his community. He served the federal government. He served state government. And he did screw up. There's no question about that. I believe he's done. He's time. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We will take the case under consideration. I thank you gentlemen, for your for your willingness to come and appear next case. Rick

"Hey, everybody. It's Kevin Dietz. I hosted season two of shattered white boy, Rick if you haven't heard it yet, you can go back and hear all eight episodes in this feed. I know we're in the middle of season three of shattered right now. But I'm back to let you know what's been going on with Rick and to tell you about a development in his story. From the beginning. Rick story has been about bad choices and bad lock. It led him to spend almost two thirds of his life in prison arrested at seventeen years old on a cocaine charge. Now, he's forty nine and finally has a shot at becoming a free, man. Executive clemency. Ord meeting is now called the order for we began at like to ask chaplain berry boat champ of the department of corrections to lead us in the invocation and pledge of allegiance in late. August two thousand seventeen Rick where she junior was released by the state of Michigan after winning parole for his life sentence from a cocaine conviction nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight. But after twenty nine years behind bars, he was not free to go home. He was turned over to the custody of the state of Florida -partment of corrections. That's because Rick pleaded guilty being part of a car theft ring from behind bars. Here's Rick's lawyer Ralph maselli, they would steal luxury automobiles from dealership used car lots. They would change the VIN numbers. And then they would sell them. And the the guy that was the ringleader was in prison with Rick. He was operating this out of federal prison. Well, Rick called his mother and sister and said, hey, these are great deals. At the time. Rick got involved in the car ring. It just been turned down yet again for parole in Michigan figured he'd never get out. And when the chance came to make some money for his children, it took it. The ringleaders were busted. And so is Rick. He was charged with conspiracy. He was sentenced to five years and went straight from a Michigan prison to a Florida prison is out date was set for Tober two thousand twenty. Recogni talk just about every week when he was in the Michigan prison, and I used a recorded conversations and close to a hundred TV news stories as well as this podcast when he went to Florida, we still talked every week. But Rick said, he no longer wanted our phone calls recorded, and he no longer wanted his story on TV he wanted to go to Florida be quiet and keep as low a profile as possible. I'm rick. I'm not I'm not the person I was made out to be I did some bad things and the second half of my life. I'm going to do some good with it. And the people that have found so hard for me. I'm not gonna let him down. His plan was to fit in and be a regular inmate in push for an early release from the Florida clemency board. He hired attorney Jeffcott camp. A former Florida Lieutenant governor with connections hot camp got to work and it paid off. He was able to get Ricky hearing for December fifth two thousand eighteen this would be Rick's chance to make his case before the clemency board if he received a yes, vote from the governor and one other board member he would have his sentence change to time served. It would be free to go ahead of his out date of twenty twenty before the hearing Rick told me he was cautiously optimistic. His attorney told him governor Rick Scott was likely a yes vote, and it was very likely. He would get a second. Yes. Vote from either attorney general Pam Bondi chief financial officer Jimmy patroness or department of agriculture director Adam Putnam, and then less than one week before the hearing that could free him the forty first president of the United States, George H W Bush has died when a bring now CNN's typically that would have no impact on the Florida clemency hearings until it was announced that the funeral would fall on December fifth. Same day. Rick was scheduled to have his hearing. And because of that service, President Trump has called for Wednesday to be federal holiday. This means nearly all federal workers will be excused from work and their agencies will be closed. This includes US there would be no work for government employees. And no hearing for Rick's, the Florida clemency board cancelled to hearing with no mention of win or if it would be rescheduled. Time was of the essence because a month earlier on November eighth Florida had a general election. They voted in a new governor Ron Santa's and a new attorney general, Ashley moody, they would replace outgoing governor Rick Scott now going to turn general Pam Bondi January first two thousand nineteen this would create a lot of uncertainty. Rix, concern was a brand new governor and attorney general might not vote to release them the days clicked away one after another. The new year rang in and with it came the new clemency board Rix hearing was finally rescheduled for March thirteen two thousand nineteen at eight in the morning at the Florida state capital in Tallahassee. Rick was not allowed to attend. He would remain in his prison cell three hours south of the hearing room. His team had only ten minutes to make their case under the category of Comey tation of sentence favorable recommendations, number one Vichit were she Rix attorney Jeffcott camp. The former Lieutenant governor of Florida spoke first setting the stage for the argument that Rick should be released immediately. I think in the eight years that you serve on this board. This will be the most unique case that you ever see with me today or two distinguished retired F B I agents Herman groman and Greg Schwartz who are going to speak on behalf of the release of mR worshiping. I think that alone. Makes this case very unique to fully understand Mr. worships case, you can't just look at the Florida charged. But you have to look at the totality of the circumstances. He was recruited at the age of fourteen to help break up drug gangs in Detroit, and it really hits home for me. Because that's how old my son is fourteen. And in the eighth grade, and Mr. worship was very good at it. Because of his hard work twenty-five dangerous drug dealers were put away put behind bars

So they knew that they were surrounded by native people who did not want explorers coming to their neighborhood. Do you think the natives did not attack them? Well, they tears party had guns. So that's very important. They had guns. And I think they would have been able to defend themselves at least for a while. And they stayed together. I mean, that's the other things being a party with with guns made them more formidable. Teddy Roosevelt had long been admired for his toughness, which he took to the extreme in one thousand nine twelve. A would be assassin shot him on the campaign trail bleeding from a chest wound TR delivered a ninety minute speech before going to a hospital a year and a half later. He would come even closer to death on the river of doubt on March twenty seventh canoes overturned and TR steps into the water and helps pull the canoes out.

And then his malaria gets back, and he's feverish and delirious, he's got palpitation. Nations shortness of breath. He's always had a heart condition within a day. Roosevelt could barely get off his cot at the same time. The men's spirits were crushed by what they discovered ahead. The most punishing set of Rapids yet, including a thirty foot waterfall the slippery rock face on either side was nearly vertical. The river was now more obstacle than escape route. They seem stranded in this vertical mountain area of miles of Rapids. And steep hills run dawn panics and says we're all going to have to fight ourselves. One by one out of the jungle. Let's all just every man for himself cutting their way through the jungle would have been a death sentence for teddy Roosevelt and probably for all of them. They would easily have become lost. They would have been vulnerable to native people and to animals and Kermit steps up and says, no will only survive if we keep together. Back home in New York. Edith Roosevelt had no clue that her insurance policy was paying off. She had coaxed her son into joining the expedition now Kerma did everything to save his father. But could he saved TR from himself? No man has any business to go on such a trip as ours unless he will refuse to jeopardize the welfare of his associates by any delay caused by a weakness or ailments of his it is his duty to go forward.

He'd also just had an accident falling off a forty foot bridge and could have been killed and he had broken teeth and was seriously ill so to get letters from smother. Edith writing him saying, I know you just had an accident. You're just recently engaged, but you have to go on this trip to save your father's life. He's in a heroic mood, and it may be reckless. And he's got these underlying medical conditions. And you know, how he is. He's he wants to be one of the great explorers. And he's willing to die on this path to find this river. One of the fascinating things that you run into is Currence that you don't really expect. You have rivers feeding in from directions. You don't expect them to be feeding in from? And all of a sudden the bottom of your canoes getting buffeted by a counter current. That's going to topple you over on March fifteenth just over two weeks into the journey criminals. Canoe was sucked into a whirlpool and flipped a camaraderie name. Simplisafe disappeared in the raging. Current Kermit was also swept down the Rapids, so tears running ahead to find where the Rapids are. And he thinks his son is dead, but they pull criminal out of the water. His helmet is covering his face. But they're able to resuscitate him and he is alive, but some police ios body was never found TR realizes. That he's put his his son in harm's way in that. He doesn't really care very much if he gets out because he's so discouraged about his life and down, but to take his son into the wilderness and to have him loses will life because of bad planning. And unexpected danger is is is a really sobering. They lost kermit's canoe and the food had carried to other canoes had been destroyed after rising water broke them from their moorings.

They were hungry, and the insects were relentless our hands and faces was swollen from the bites and stings insect pests. Mosquitos horse flows. Fees giant ants. Termites invaded TR's tent. The eight holes in his helmet and even devoured his underwear. Theodore Roosevelt was pretty stoic guy. But the one thing he did complain about in his book was the insects about you. Yes. The insects on. I was getting bit about one hundred times a day. So I was I was just absolutely getting mauled, and they made so much noise and all of these time periods, I was typically hiding in my tent or I was covered head to toe and just part of my face exposed on the river.

"Feel hundred miles of sweltering heat torrential rain, relentless insects, poisonous snakes man, eating piranhas, violent Rapids, and hostile native people red flags to be sure, but to the former president of the United States they were irresistible temptations. He's definitely close to death by the end of the trip. That's Kathleen Dalton historian and author of Theodore Roosevelt, a strenuous life. Tina Roosevelt was president of the United States from nineteen eighty one to nineteen oh nine then he runs for president again in nineteen twelve as a bull moose Progressive Party candidate and makes American history that he's the most successful third-party presidential candidate beating incumbent but losing to Woodrow Wilson, and is not quite sure what to do with himself. So in nineteen thirteen he cooks up this idea of doing a speaking tour. In Brazil, T are added to his South American trip along and reasonably safe journey on previously explored rivers, but after arriving in Brazil, he suddenly latched onto a crazy idea. He would canoe down an unknown river with Brazil's, most famous explorer Candido rundown. Helped bring the telegraph out into the Amazon and he is famous in Brazilian history. As a person who is respectful of native people and helped them be a part of the Brazilian state as expanded into their territory. Rondo and had appropriately named it. The river of doubt, he had no idea of its length or its direction. All he knew was word began getting their required. A trip with pack animals through hundreds of miles of the Arab Brazilian Highland. And it was a very hot and remote area. So even getting to the rivers dangerous. They didn't bring enough food and it was a badly. Planned exploration. Rondo knows very smart man and very capable. But I think he he was cavalier about the the food crates and TR was just so determined to have an adventure. He didn't really think about how serious they're they're bad planning would be in the long run. But writing on the long trail TR must have realized the expedition was already in deep trouble, some of the pack animals were dying and the supply crates. They had carried were abandoned Roosevelt wrote a book about the journey. This isn't his voice. But the words are his own continually as we journeyed onward under the pitiless glare of the sun or through blinding torrents of rain. We passed desolate little graves by the roadside, they mocked the last resting places of men who had died by fever or dysentery or EROs. We raised our hats as our mules plotted slowly by it's one month to reach the river of doubt. My name's Jeffrey Lehman, and I was on the Roosevelt Ron dawn, centennial scientific expedition down, the deepest of the Amazon. It was October of two thousand fourteen Lehman traveled the same river with three others, including a professor from UC San Diego. I've been on a lot of adventures Lehman hosts the public TV series, weekend explorer, and I knew that if I did it. It would be the most dangerous most. A challenging thing. I ever did in my life, and it lived up to that expectation. So here we are. First waterfall. It's been a rough day. And this waterfalls intense. No wonder Roosevelt was so odd by this. The river goes from as big as you've seen it. Two to three meters. Ten feet across had most. And at least the calendar. Two thirds of the mile, and this is the smoothest part of the whole river right here. Just spent the last two hours kind of scoping it out and putting up our tents after a long day of rowing hobbling. And. Tickets all day tomorrow. We'll make this happen. But we will..
