"baron pierre" Discussed on Why It Matters

"Capacity to preside at the opening ceremony of the eleventh monitored yet. The mexico game sixty eight african american nominees stood on the widows podium heads bowed longtime raised in the black power back the nineteen eighty winter olympics remembered today for the miracle on ice one of the greatest moments in american sports every olympics provides a snapshot of a city the country at a point in time this one was more compelling than most since china's rise and it's ongoing transformation is global story. Not only the moment but likely of the foreseeable future so the modern olympics were the brain child of a plucky baron. From france named barron peered cooper thanh and he was an aristocrat who was very much dismayed by the fact that the french had just gotten drugged in a war and he thought that he could use sports to toughen up what he called the time of flabby youth. Who just got too soft sounds a little bit curmudgeonly in kind of odd. But i say all that to say. The olympics were sort of built on a bed of contradiction on one hand. The baron pierre to coober thanh wanted to start the olympics to toughen up the youth to get him ready for war but he also used the games as this big mechanism for peace. He thought that the women of the time should not participate in the olympics. In fact if you look at his writings he said things like women should only be involved in the olympics to place. The victory laurels on the heads of men who won the gold medals and silver medals. You also had a lot of the racist sentiments of his time so he was a man of great sexism and racism. He was also a man of great persuasion and he persuaded a lot of people to come along. Wow so he's got a great name but you know mixed bag there on the goals and the original intent of the olympic games. Well it's interesting to gabby. Because when he started the olympics he got together a bunch of other dukes and counts and barons to create the international olympic committee. So there was a real aristocratic flavor from the very beginning of the olympic games. The growth of the olympic games into the global extravaganza. We now know was slow and steady. Only eleven nations officially participated in the eighteen. Ninety six games but by nineteen thirty six at the infamous berlin olympics that number had grown to forty nine. These games were also the first to be televised and watched by a global audience with this audience came. Advertisers a process that culminated in the nineteen eighty-four games sponsored. In part by mcdonald's these became the most financially successful in modern history by the atlanta games of nineteen ninety-six nearly every nation on earth was represented. But it wasn't until the london games of twenty twelve that all participating nations sent female athletes took more than a century. But we got there eventually. Cheers barron wanted to tell you about another podcast. I think you'll like the last archive from harvard. Historian and yorker writer. Jill lepore this season lepore is investigating purveyors of doubt hoaxers fraudsters pseudo-scientists. And how. The peddling of doubt evolved over the twentieth century leading all the way to the capital insurrection on january sixth 2021 this show is unlike anything you've heard before history animated by long lost archival tapes and documents. Intrepid reporting and radio drama reenactments. The last archive unfurled like classic nineteen thirties. Gumshoe mystery but takes on the big issues of today. How do we know what we know. Why does it seem sometimes lately is if we don't know anything at all listen to the last archive. Wherever you get your podcasts from pushkin industries what trends have you noticed over the decades. About what kind of countries are bidding or hosting the olympics. Sure will for starters. A lot of the bidding was incredibly competitive especially in the nineteen nineties. Say and moving forward but in recent years there has been the rise of a lot of criticism from critical journalists from academic writing from activists in different cities in human rights workers. That has put a lot of people's heads to maybe have a little more caution in how they approached the olympics in terms of the wider trends of why. We're not seeing forbids those trends of also become more clear through time and those trends are overspending. So i call it a sketch economics where during the bid phase of the olympics the bidder. Say that the olympics will only cost so much but by the time the olympics are actually staged. It's actually many times that the tokyo games are a perfect example of that. A second trend is white elephant stadiums because the olympics has a lot of specialty sports like canoeing in these whitewater rapid type scenarios. You have to build these special venues. That really aren't going to be used. Afterwards they often sit in disrepair so there are many pictures from say. Athens where like the softball field is just a bunch of weeds or look at more recently. Rio de janeiro in the. Oh doral complex where. They built a specialized canoe run. That's all boarded up. Nobody can really use it anymore. A third trend is displacement and gentrification one point five million people were displaced to make way for the beijing two thousand eight summer olympics. I lived in rio de janeiro in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen olympics as a fulbright research fellow and i saw for my own is displacement. Happening there some seventy seven thousand. People were displaced to make way for the olympics. Another trend with the olympics is the militarization of the public sphere. You're seeing more and more people around the world. Viewing the olympics. As a terrorist target this was directly stated by chechen rebel. Doku umarov in regards to the two thousand fourteen sochi olympics. He said that's a legitimate terrorist. Target and of course we know from the political history of the olympics that there was a terrorist attack at munich in nineteen seventy two in another one in atlanta nineteen ninety six in so cities essentially use the olympics like their own private. Atm machine when it comes to securitising games getting all the special weapons laws that they would never be able to get during normal political times and those special weapons laws stick around after the gains a fifth trend that we see time and again is what a lot of people are calling greenwashing which is to say making big environmental promises during the bid phase and then not following through and actually comes to the delivery of the olympics and so it's those trends that more and more people are becoming aware of when they think about the olympics is kind of scaring off cities from wanting to bid because the word is out on the street that while the olympics are full of the world's most wonderful and talented athletes. They.

"We'll put you in the shoes of everyday citizens as history was being made. And we'll show you how the events of the time affected them their families and affects you now today. The olympics are an international sporting juggernaut. The most recent summer games held in rio de janeiro in two thousand sixteen attracted an average of twenty seven million viewers a night. This summer's games which are scheduled to begin in tokyo. This month will feature eleven thousand athletes competing and over three hundred events and are expected to generate over one billion dollars in advertising revenue but the origins of today's olympics are much less grand. The modern olympics began in europe. At the end of the nineteenth century organizers sought to evoke the fabled athletic competitions of ancient greece and showcase amateur sports on an international stage competitions would bring athletes and spectators together from around the world and possibly even promote peace among nations but the first american olympics held in nineteen. Oh four began with political jockeying and controversy the games with nearly fall apart before the first earning gone was even fired still. Despite confusion and bickering on the sidelines legends would be made on the field of competition. This is the first of a three part series exploring the first olympics in the united states. This is episode one a tale of two cities in the eighteen. Hundreds the united states in the countries of western europe took renewed interest in ancient cultures greek architecture. Art and philosophy were popular discussion topics in both society drawing rooms and newspaper. Columns colleges and universities adopted theories of classical education as a foundation to learning and in the eighteen twenties. Modern greece arrived on the world. Stage with a fiery war of independence against the ottoman empire. Soon after a young greek newspaper publisher named ponti on a suit sauce. Call the ancient. Greek olympic games to be recreated. They would be real competitions with prizes and awards that would hearken back to classical sporting events from the age of socrates it took two decades for suit sauces idea to gain traction along the way he tempered his romantic notions of time honored athletic competitions with more pragmatic economic objectives pursuit sauce. The games would give his native country a chance to regain its place of prominence on the world stage. He wrote if greece could reestablish the olympic games. The peoples of the world would respect us. Suit says convinced a war hero and wealthy shipping magnate named evangelical zappa's to put his considerable fortune behind the greek games together. They staged four olympics between eighteen fifty nine and eighteen eighty nine. They included ancient sports. Such as javelin discus and stone throw an early version even included a chariot race.

Baron pierre de kubrick tall was born into french nobility and took an early interest in education and history. He felt strongly. The francis eighteen seventy one defeat and the franco prussian. War had mostly to do with french soldiers lack of physical training so he formed a philosophy that placed athletics at the forefront of the french educational system in eighteen eighty eight coober tall founded an organization that advocated for compulsory physical education in french schools. He promoted exercise and fitness regimens taken from the english school system. As well as the german athletic clubs called turn verein he also began corresponding with william penny brookes the englishman who developed the win lock. Olympian games with brooks's advice. He formulated his first idea of how to build an olympic style event around amateur athletics. In the nineteenth century amateurs played in the majority of sporting events the average person might attend but the term amateur wasn't always inclusive in england the amateur code served as a barrier to keep working class people from participating in gentlemen's clubs sports a rule known as the mechanics clause denied amateur status to anyone who was employed as a mechanic artisan or manual labor.

"I spoke recently about my excitement around one of the new sports making. Its debut at the tokyo olympics next month skateboarding. but it's just one of six new sports making their debut or triumphant return. The returning sports are baseball and softball and the new ones are skateboarding as well as karate. Surfing and sport climbing only sport climbing is kind of a returning sport as well back around the turn of the twentieth century. Alpine climbing was an event in the winter olympics. Also called albinism. It was named an official sport in eighteen. Ninety four but the first award wasn't handed out until nineteen twenty four at the first ever winter olympics in france. It wasn't so much a sport that spectators would go see in conjunction with the rest of the olympic games. As it was in honor bestowed on people who had achieved great feats in mountaineering. Recently the first medal went to the team of the nineteen twenty to mount everest expedition. The first focused effort to reach the top or at least the first made headlines around the world though. They didn't actually ever make it to the top it marks. The first and only time in olympic medal has been awarded to a multinational team according to mental floss. Unfortunately a large number of the team who had gone on that expedition mostly sherpas had died in the attempt and george mallory. One of the main mountaineers died shortly after the award was announced on another everest attempt of his luton. Edward strutt deputy leader on the expedition accepted the medal on the teams behalf and vowed to one day. Take the medals to the summit of everest. But he never did make it either. Further alpine climbing medals were awarded the nineteen thirty two and nineteen thirty six games but the alpine climbing metal did not return when the olympics did following world war two in part due to the international olympic. Committee's concerns with encouraging sport. In which so. Many of the medals had to be awarded posthumously. They did handed out once. More though at the nineteen eighty-eight calgary winter games. Reinhold messner and jersey kukushka were given silver medals for climbing fourteen of the world's eight thousand meter peaks and as a nice footnote ahead of the london olympic games in two thousand twelve. British mountaineer kenton. Cool got in touch with the grandson of one of the original mountaineers on that nineteen twenty two expedition in order to fulfil lieutenant struts. Promise that one of the gold medals were awarded be taken to the summit of mount everest and thanks to cool. It finally was hopefully the return of climbing to the olympics. This year will be sufficiently less fatal though. I will say if they wanna keep adding sports baron. Pierre de cooper ten the first ac- president and man responsible for bringing back the olympics in eighteen ninety four did originally envision that the games would include feats of aeronautics for which a medal was awarded at the nineteen thirty six games. So maybe it's time for a comeback. All right well. That isn't for today as always this show was produced by ride home. Media and cocky dot org. I jackson bird and i will talk to you again tomorrow..

We have our guest joining us now on the program. Professor univer Pacific university professor politics government the author of no libyan's inside the fight against capitalists megasports los angeles tokyo and beyond gills boy cough. Thanks so much for joining us. Here with emma viglen. Thanks for having me so. Let's obviously we're three weeks out from Tokyo there's a whole nother sort of set of issues regarding the tokyo olympics because of covid but in many respects the relentless i guess insistence on having these games when you have some of the top medical experts in the country saying this is a bad idea. The same forces are creating that dynamic in addition to all the other issues that exist the olympic. So so let's start with just sort of the the history of the games and the The problems with the games that we should say this is not about the athletes per se. Right this is about everything else that comes with absolutely. That's a great place to start really because there's no question that athletes are what make the olympics. What they are were it not for the athletes. There'd be no olympics but then you have this group of people from the international olympic committee who are the organizers of the gains who essentially us athletes like human shields to create these monstrous events that do incredible damage to the communities host events whether it's tokyo a whether it's london whether it's vancouver or whether it's a future host like paris los angeles and so the longer history of the olympics really does help us make sense of this when you go all the way back to the beginning of the games and think that they were started by baron an aristocrat from france named baron pierre to coober thanh who got together a bunch of other barons and dukes and counts and really created this elite affair and ever since then the olympic chorus has sung with an upper class accent in definitely. Does that today. And that explains a lot of what happens if why it might not make sense to your listeners viewers why were pressing ahead with an optional. Sporting spectacle during a global health pandemic. If you think about the fact that it's elites with money on the line including the international olympic committee and nbc which is hosting the games here on the broadcasting networks. The united states. Then it starts to make more sense and we should say full disclosure. This program replays on the peacock app. I think the peacock gap is carrying a lot of the olympic games. And we're not we're not owned by nbc but we do provide them content through a licensing deal so full disclosure. that's That's there are so. Let's i mean how much money are we talking about. Like i mean how much money in when it's a we're talking about an extraordinary amount of money and then lay out for us. The different sort of cohort of people. Who are getting that money. All right so for starters. The olympics aren't extraordinarily expensive affair. And there's this dynamic what i call sketch. Economics whereby during the bid phase of the olympics. The olympics are only supposed to cost this much. You put your sketchy. Say hey public. Look it's only gonna cost the case of tokyo. Seven point three billion dollars but then once you actually get handed the olympics by the international olympic committee. You shake up that etch sketch brand new number on it in this case in tokyo. We're looking at thirty billion dollars being spent on the tokyo olympics. Now that's just to get the games to happen. Cypriot i whom who spends that money all but six point seven billion dollars of that. Thirty billion is public money. Which is this a tax payer money and that's pretty par for the course to be honest when you look at most olympic games. They're essentially purchased by the taxpayer. And they're there for corporations to kind of come along and make money off on. That's the general dynamics that undergirds of so who's going to make the money that's another one of your elements. Your question will for starters the broadcasters of the olympics. they stand do quite well. The international olympic committee has well. They've got more than a billion dollars in their coffers their their reserves at all times. And so we're talking in these games around five billion or so in broadcast. Revenues will be distributed to the other entities. They like to tell us that they spread them around to the wider movement. That's what they call it. The olympic movement but a really important study out of ryerson university found recently the compared the amount that actual olympic athletes get from the revenues of the olympics to other sports like from the nba or the national football league national hockey league or the english premier league of soccer football in england and they found that those other leagues the athletes. Get around forty five to sixty percent of the revenues. They are brought in by their sport with the olympics. It's only four point one percent forty-six to sixty or forty five to sixty compared to four point one percent so the money does not necessarily directly to athletes..

"Hundred dollars of wine decided to go. Take it out on the tree stocking now. That only gosh. So as the games continue to progress they consisted eventually. The games consist of twenty three events including men's track and field equestrian events and additional events for boys. So now i just wanted to expand on the nudity in the game because i thought you might find that so there are two stories relating to the question of nudity in the ancient olympic games story states that the whole thing started because a runner from megara. he was named or post Was the first run naked in stadium race with. He lost his shorts so he was wearing. Shorts fell down. I guess he just kind of kicked them off kept guy. Yeah i guess that's what you and win So then there's a second story that suggests it was in fact the spartans who introduced nudity into the games in the eighth century bc as it was a spartan tradition to be nude all the time. I think the way i understood it is the spartans would actually battle naked my rain so they said that they were the best at that. Penn crashing yon ever pin creation. So i guess it was just kind of their thing and they make it like all the time all the other teams are like if versus spartans team. Gweat not so for my research. It seems fairly clear that by the eighth century nudity was common. Wow big game. I thought you were gonna say everybody stops. They started being a little modest. But now you're loud. Everybody because a great idea i mean. I wonder when it stopped. I guess you know in either doing olympics. Imagine if that's how it was. Now i mean some of the wrestling outfits. Are there near like barely there. Bradley barely are they are about simpson's yes right. I mean so. There's a runner pin. I mean they. Those shorts are so sure. yeah will their size. They're like holding out so muscular. Yeah yeah so. There's maybe that's a little bit of an image to the naked games or skinny short shorts savings but of course back then. No women participated by the by just that he mentioned that picture women fighting the noon little. Yeah they just. They just enjoyed themselves watching but they did. I'm sure they so. The last of the ancient games were staged in three and ninety three eighty and it took one thousand five hundred three years for the games to return so all that time break. Yeah so the first. Modern olympics were held in athens greece in eighteen ninety six. Interestingly the idea to bring back the games was actually conceived by a frenchman named baron. Pierre the coober teen okay and he actually wanted to unveil the modern olympics in paris in one thousand nine hundred so he wanted to be in paris..

"Sixty four men in any medical unit which included surgeons orderlies and nurses and those personnel were traveling aboard sixteen carriages from position to position and bringing with them twelve ambulance wagons and four wagons to carry supplies. The division was managed in a hierarchy in the following manner as described by a quote one surgeon major of the first class commanding with two surgeons mates of the second class. Twelve junior mates of the third class two of them serving as pot the carries a lieutenant steward of division of ambulance. A sub lieutenant inspector of police acting as under steward a quartermaster general of the first class of ambulance two deputies of the third class of ambulance a bearer of surgical instruments with trumpet twelve soldiers on horseback as overseers to take care of the wounded among them a farrier a Sadler and a bootmaker and a commission sergeant major of the First Class to commissioned officers of the second class to proceed the ambulance three corporals retained for the performance of various errands elad with a drum carrying surgical dressings and twenty five foot soldiers as overseers to take care of the wounded array further may detailed descriptions of the orders. That Kirk should travel in. What particular supplies? Each person in each position should require and carry and even specifications regarding their uniforms in all of these notes and provisions and details about how this should be carried out. Were carefully made so that each person could do their job to the best of their ability. General Alexander De Bill. Harney made sure to mention the work of lay in his reports to his superiors saying quote. I ought not see women. The surgeon Major Laret and his comrades with flying ambulances whose indefatigable care in the healing of the wounded has diminished those afflicting results to humanity which have generally been inseparable from days of victory and has essentially served the cause of humanity itself in preserving the brave defenders of our country Yeah it's really interesting. There's a lot of talk. I don't go into detail in this outline but there was a lot of talk at the time of how much just having laret working on these problems setting up this system not only saved people's lives but also was just a morale boost. Lake soldiers felt better knowing there was a codified system in place to take care of them and so they were better at their jobs and Laura we should mention was not the only person that was working on creating vehicles. That can go onto battlefields to help soldiers in need of medical attention. We said earlier that there had been a call for the development of a solution to this problem in the form of a battlefield transport for wounded men on the part of the French government and there had been a prize offered. If someone could design prototype it was light enough for ease of movement solid enough to withstand the terrain of battlefields and the constant travel from engagement to engagement and also large enough to carry four to six adult men. Twenty nine designs were submitted to the government but none were approved or awarded the prize. One that was in development at the same time as far as was designed by another French surgeon. Baron Pierre Francois Percy. His cart was sort of like it along. Gated slightly rounded coffin that was filled with medical supplies and pulled by a team of two horses. The idea was that a surgeon would ride with the troops to the battlefield on the cart. Which got the nickname worst wagon because it reminded people of a sausage? All treatment would happen from this mobile hospital. There was no functionality for Percy's designed to carry a soldier to safety or to a hospital tent medical staff would still need to cartman around on stretchers while Percy's idea and others are being vetted and discarded and the government even attempted. Its own design. Larae had already been successfully using his ambulance in real world. Battles repair. Leo was extremely grateful to Hillary for this innovation which as I said earlier saved the lives of many soldiers and sped up recovery so that men could get back to active duty. The leader said of the surgeon quote. Your work is one of the most happy conceptions of our age. It will suffice for your reputation. Lorraine became one of Napoleon's favorites and he was promoted to surgeon in chief of the army of Corsica and he got that news while he was returned temporarily to Paris. He was there because he was overseeing construction of more ambulances for more troops and also getting married to his beloved. Charlotte Elizabeth LAVIOLA WHO? The wedding was barely finished. Twin Lorraine his bride left for too low on Francis Southern Coast where Dominique John had been ordered to report his wife with family. That lived there while her husband reported for duty and from there traveled extensively as needed in the service of the army he went to niece and then. Spain and Italy establishing units to execute his medical system in each location while he was stationed in Milan he also established a school of surgery. There yeah built list of all out here but basically he was setting up. These situations met military hospitals etc all over Europe as as these various engagements went on and as he continued to work in Aker battlezones. We're a also pioneered a new approach to amputations because a lot of men had limbs damaged cannon fire. Amputations were always an issue. During this time in military conflict lorraine developed what came to be known as his twenty four hour principle meaning that he believed the patient's chance of surviving with a limb that needed amputation drops if he was not operated on within twenty four hours prior to this there had been a belief that the surgeon should wait for evidence of dead tissue to make sure that the limb was truly lost. Before amputating under Lorraine's ideology. The amputation would happen as soon as possible. After the injury happened. It was more a matter of really carefully assessing the injury and determining this limb cannot be saved. The idea was that leaving so-called devitalized tissue intact increase the chance of infection and SEPSIS. Laura actually noted once in his writings that before these ideas were implemented you almost never saw amputees particularly amputees that had lost multiple limbs. But he was like that's because they rarely survive additionally lure as early study with his uncle had included hours and hours of dissection lab work so he had a masterful understanding of anatomy as a consequence he was able to develop a new method for performing amputations at the shoulder. Which came to be known as l'oeil amputation? You may recall that when we talked about Robert Liston. He had developed a way of amputating that left extra skin so the wound could be sued without the skin. Being too tight laret had a similar idea but it worked from the opposite angle. He severed the limb above. The damage often close to a joint leaving enough skin. Similarly close the wound with the optimal comfort for the patient and Laura was also willing and able to perform the very dangerous amputation of the leg at the hip. This was a very controversial operation at the time and Laura received a lot of criticism from the medical community doing it but he was adamant that there were cases when this was the only option and he wrote quote however cruel that operation may be it is an act of humanity in the hands of the surgeon when he can save the life of the injured endanger and the more the danger is great and pressing the more. The response must be prompt and energetic. Laurey made a number of other strides. Not just didn't feel medicine. But in medicine in general he developed a trauma focused method of cardio sintesis or removing fluid from around the heart with a needle. He designed a new type of needle for suturing that he used on the battlefield. He developed a way to use a patient's breathing to assist in draining wounds. He also realized that extreme cold could be used as an anesthetic something that he practiced on the battlefield by packing snow onto injuries and he pioneered the removal of bullets from wounds by making a secondary incision rather than digging through the damaged tissue that the bullet had damaged upon entry. We're going to talk about Laura's continuing service to Napoleon and the power of his reputation in just a moment but first we'll take a break in here from the sponsors keep stuff. You missed in history class going. Here's the thing. Saving money with Geico is almost better than playing pickup basketball. Because there's always that guy who joins your game. He never passes the rock. He constantly bricks threes. And who completely hack you? And then put his hands up and say no foul no foul with gyco. It's easy to switch and save on car insurance. No need to fake. An ANKLE SPRAIN. Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switch and save with GYCO. It's almost better than sports. Hi I'm Esther Dean.
