NCGOP alleges corruption on Charlotte City Council, files ethics complaints

"Has filed ethics complaints against two City Council members. Dimple as Mira and James Smudgy Mitchell. And before we get everybody's reaction to this, Fox, 46 Charlotte's Rochelle are Metzger set it up pretty nicely, but I wanted to clear the Air. Charlotte City Councilman James Mitchell says he wants to clear the air about an ethics complaint filed by State Republicans, accusing the Democrat of using taxpayer money to visit Detroit sports facilities in November 2018 is the first time ever That that has been a test of my name and is truly follows. Mitchell says It was strictly an economic development trip to talk about a potential dome stadium for the Carolina Panthers and future facilities for Charlotte FC. But the complaint says Mitchell's former company stood to benefit from the trip. Bart Moloch was the stadium expert. I spent time with elected, efficient and instead of Detroit, Thomas Entertainment District. That was that true was about it, And so there was no way he benefited from politically no benefit from financially. That was me doing my work this chair of economic development commit. In a separate complaint, the state GOP accuses Democratic Councilwoman dimple as Meera of receiving campaign donations in exchange for a yes vote when re zoning issues came before the council in a statement. As Meera says, in part, these are active and traditional donors. Too many candidates. Most importantly, My vote can't be bought, and I have never received the endorsement of the prominent developer organizations. This is purely a racist, sexist and political attack, as Meera says the complaint is an attempt by Republicans to deflect attention away from concerns surrounding Republican Councilman Tark Bakari, whose company was given $1.5 million of city money for an advanced technology jobs program. That money has since been taken away to which dark Macari took to Twitter last night. And in a Siri's of tweets defended himself, he said, Among other things, if Councilwoman Dimple s marriage does not publicly retract this libelous statement and refrain from repeating this action in the future. I will be forced to take swift legal action. The Democrats took a cheap shot at the ethics of Tart Muk are very cheap shot the attorneys for the city Have basically cleared him of any wrongdoing. In fact, documents and videos of a previous meeting from weeks before showed that the Democratic Council members knew everything from committee meetings and even Complemented tart macari on his work. You wonder what the political rationale was when they all of a sudden voted. I think 9 to 1 to cancel a contract with dark, which he abstained from voting, by the way, which is by what the rules are now the GOP, I think, fired back and said, if you're going to take shots against AH, Republican, one of only two Republicans in the county. You might be living in a glass house. Well, Bret

What is love?

"King is my brother. He's eight years old, and he's feisty and energetic, but he has some really good ideas. Hi, it's me He. was talking about. The question is what is Love Like one of your brain, it like someone and the their brain like like you in some. Kind of like that. Have you ever been in love I? Love My mom and dad knew yeah, so guess. What is what's that like? When I kinda love, you guys because Moiseyev Blink. Relatives and also I just live with you every day. Where have to adjust to you? Do you know why People Love Each Other? Because look the needle we put us. Yeah that that makes a lot of sense. If there was like there, there's probably a part of your brain. That's like I. Have to pass these genes on. Yeah, what do you feel when you feel love? What? What is it like well I. Love You, but it's hard to. This guy is just like someone that you just like. Uncomfortable comfortable around talking to and like. Don't get embarrassed about crime. That's Lov. Yeah, 'cause. You known them for a long time, and we also have to kind of stay to go because what bothers. By and I love you I. Love you. Bye. My brother said something really interesting there about how love actually is in the brain now I'm a science guy. I really think the brain is cool. So I did a little bit of research, looking at love, and how it works inside our brain, and what I came across. Is this weird thing called oxytocin? It's a hormone. Would in your brain that makes you connect with people? A lot of people even call it beloved hormone. And I came upon this really awesome psychologist Dave. Jennifer Barks Dr Bart's is an expert on oxytocin and how we build. In general I'm a professor of psychology. At McGill University I want to be honest. I! Looked at who you are in did a little bit of research about your work and it? You're pretty awesome. Let me say that. Thank you. Now I know this is a big scary. To tackle question, but what do you think is love so I guess? My preferred definition of Love was one that was put forward by the developmental psychologist Mary Ainsworth, as an affectionate tie that one person or animal forms between him or herself, and another specific one a tie that binds them together in space and endures time a Thai. Thai. And just getting, but I really think that definition is awesome. It's like we're floating time space, and there's just a string that keeps us together that transcend space and time. I like that I'm gonNA use that from now on. Greg. Why do you think human love? We know love plays a role in procreation, but it's way more than that. It's really there to ensure that the caregiver stays in close contact with the infant for warmth protection nutrition, just keeping the infant safe in contrast to other animals in the animal kingdom, humans are pretty unremarkable, lacking physical strength speed, big claws, big teeth, so as a result, humans really evolved to be very social animals, living in the group was their defense mechanism strength in numbers, strengthened numbers exactly, but like nowadays off to worry about getting eaten by bears not trite. No you don't, but you still have to worry about you. Know Illness, and when we don't have those social connections, we don't do as well. Lack of closeness increases risk for morality.

"I'm a Feminist But..." Social Distance Dancing and Zoom

"I'm a feminist Bart today for the first time. I went into a dance studio in a socially distance way from my dance. Instructor, Melissa Bravo, so for those don't know. My lockdown project was dance lessons. Because I wanted to make meaning of the time and I also wanted to make a faster and I thought you know what dirty dancing montage makes the time go really fast. Just go well. They've done a bit of this and a bit of this and a bit of this and then three months passed. So I thought I would learn to dance for surveys INS, and so I hired a dance Tacoma. Pravo who's very close to me, we'd zoom together for four months now Danzig every single day. And today for the first time we went into a studio, as was legally allowed, stood far from each other, and we just staring at each other, because we've seen more of each other in lockdown, any other human being, but not in the flesh, and already like met her once before this all happened, so we were just staring at each other for ages going. It's really you. It's really it's like. And it was we were seeing a video game avatar come to live, and then she looked and she went. On my God. This room is so big. And I'm used to seeing you on the little screen. She said this room is so big unique, really small in here and I thought Oh my God. This room is making me look thin amazing. Attorney. was.

"bart" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind

"Ourselves we ourselves have. We have analogous thing about breath. When you stop breathing, your breath doesn't go anywhere. It just God and that's how they understood the soul. It wasn't something separable from the breath the body when your soul. It leaves the body like the breathless gone. It doesn't go anywhere. And so Hebrews didn't have ancient. Hebrew didn't have this idea that the soul would live on because all simply the thing that made you alive and where you're not live, it doesn't exist anymore and so that's why in the Old Testament. Nobody talks about the sole living on after death. They there are places. where? The Hebrew Bible authors will talk about a place. It sounds like a place. That sometimes called she'll. And so people mistake that as being like this area that everybody goes to when they die, they die their souls. Go down to. She'll and. When I tried to show them my book is it probably that's not what she told me. The worst she'll, itself is often. Brought part of the problem is that the Bible translators really sometimes messes up as so often. When bought the English Bible, translators will come across the worst she'll, which secures about sixty times in the old testament very common, but. They'll translate it as hell. Well! What are you supposed to read? When you read. You Know God saved me from Hell or I. Don't want go to hell. It actually doesn't say how it says she'll, and she'll is not hell hell. Hell is where your soul goes to get punished, but that's not founded. He rethought, and so on a show in my my book is that when when she'll gets used in the Hebrew Bible. Is Almost always sat as the synonym for grave. Or pit or the your place, your body is placed. When it dies as looks like she always simply where remains our? It's not a place, and so. So there's no place in the Bible in the Old Testament where there's a place that you go either for punishment, you just die, and that's why that's why the Hebrew authors like in the psalms are so afraid of death because they're not going to have life anymore. There's not going to be anything. They're not going to be able to join anything. Be No physical pleasure. They won't even be able to worship. God they say this and God won't even remember them. He won't remember them because they won't exist and so they won't even think about them. And so that's the situation with the Hebrew Bible. That people are made up of body and soul when they die, their life is over, and they get deposited somewhere and they want to get to. They want to have a nice burial. Everybody does. The around to enjoy it. They'll be death. Yeah, I think that view is extremely clear in books like Ecclesiastes Dis I wonder though about people might be thinking about What about a passage like the the witch of indoor story will maybe can you talk for a moment about that story and how you would interpret that? Yeah, no, this is good because it's exactly the. The past people would be thinking of and passages in the new people are GonNa be thinking of and so obviously I have to talk about all these passages in my book. I should stress that when I talk about these passages, I'm not coming up with some kind of creative like weird new interpretation of these passages, the kind of stuff I. Talk About in my book our. Biblical scholars have known for a very long time most people. Most people don't talk to biblical scholars or give reasons they don't know. So I'm not I'm not saying anything unusual at all here for a biblical, so they would just say yeah, we'll of course..

Where <hes> it found that seventy two percent of Americans believe in a literal heaven and fifty eight percent believe in literal hell, and yet I think most Americans would be deeply surprised, even shock to learn what historians can show about the origins of these beliefs in the strange thing.

Cereal brands reevaluate mascots to fit the modern day

"Been rethinking their outdated corporate mascots and Jemima uncle Ben Mrs Butterworth. At the same time, a group of young entrepreneurs have set out to create new breakfast cereal characters that reflect this moment. NPR's Mandali del Barco reports. Emily. At least, Miller says the new cereal she and her team created off limits has brand mascots, unlike any other dash is a high strung, high achieving female bunny in an eighties style power suit with sneakers. She's a K pop fan. A workaholic, and she says Dash has a lot of anxiety to deal with. So her cereal turns the milk to cold brew and has coffee and chocolate zombie is just the opposite. A lazy dude who looks like he just rolled out of bed to eat his mellow cereal. There's adapted Jin's Pond on Vanilla, so everything you need to mellow out. Miller, 29 year old food writer is all about breakfast. In fact, she wrote breakfast a cookbook, and she created the breakfast club walking tours of New York restaurants. Her latest venture off limits. Serial also seems to appeal to millennials. Miller's hoping they might relate to zombie who has a bit of Bart Simpson or dash more of Ah, Lisa Simpson. The whole brand is really run by these emotionally unstable and extreme cartoon characters. Dashing zombie are a far cry from the buff, confident cereal mascot Tony the Tiger. Cash is not the first female serial character in the early 19 fifties. Kellogg's Sugar Frosted Flakes was rep. For a short time by Katie the Kangaroo who wore a bandanna and carried her baby in her pouch. I'm Katie, the kangaroo I have been given bound around you guy within that takes all night, just like an attending. Do you like Kellogg's ultimately bounced Katie The kangaroo for Tony. The Tiger, also dropping sugar from its name Fast forward to 2020 where cold and hot cereals are more than $20 billion industry in the U. S. According to market data firm statistic, with sales expected to grow To succeed. Cereal brands have to be nostalgic, healthy or have more modern mascot, says analyst Melissa Abbott. There's a demand for something completely different that isn't no masculine 20. The Tiger Macho Abbott is vice president of culinary insights at the Hartmann Group. She says cereal is not just a breakfast food. New brands are pro mode on podcasts and purchased online, Abbott says off Limits and another new cereal brand magic spoon appealed to a different aesthetic. These characters that are going to win essentially today and particularly in the breakfast category, they have Tio contain more of this multi dimensional take on the on the human personality. The flaws and all, Abbott says consumers might like that off limits. Characters were designed by artist Shepard Fairey's studio. Now the question is, Will they go for coffee flavored cereal repped by a stressed out bunny in a power suit? Handle it. Al Barco

Honoring George Floyd with Real Change, a Statement from Marriott

"CEO Arne Sorenson, and addressing the recent events surrounding race in this country, and in his company in a recent linked posts, saying for many years I've tried to use my purchased Marriott to advocate for opportunity for all regardless of race, gender, nationality, or any other point of human difference, each person deserves to be recognized for who we are and respected for common humanity, and the distinct qualities that make us unique joining us right now. Is Arne Sorenson? He is the CEO of Marriott international and Arnie. It's great to see you. Thanks for being with us today. Becky you to. Want to set this against the proper backdrop, obviously, the last several months have been incredibly difficult for everybody in the Travel and leisure industry. You are a global company. You've got more than seven thousand properties, one hundred and thirty one different countries, so you've been watching the arc of this as it all takes place, you've had to close properties. You've had to furlough employees. Where are we right now? How many of your properties are actually still shuttered? How many? Employees. Have you had to furlough? How many have you been able to bring back? Less aggression there, of course, the impact of Covid nineteen has been profound on our business. We've seen. By Revenue Sales, at army tells by ninety percent globally starting of course I in China then moving around the world as we got into March. And are low point. We had about two thousand, nine, hundred seventy five hundred hotels that were closed around the world. We've probably reopened three to four hundred of those I. Think when we look at even in the United States. We see the early signs of recovery, although we've gone from something like minus ninety percent revenue, something like minus eighty percent revenue so well in percentage terms. If you think about it from the bottom is up one hundred percent. is still a long long. Before and we suspect it's going to be. A slow climb beck. Levels we nineteen. So that sets the backdrop for what a difficult several months it's been already and how much you have on your plate. Employees are kind of watching this and not knowing what's happening on, either then you have the civil unrest and the riots that have taken place, and that adds to it so as A. What did this mean? Warning label to do. What are you hearing from your employees? This is obviously a just blew latest reminder, a frustratingly long Sharon criminal justice, particularly for for blacks and urban cities in the United States. where! There is unfairness that is profound, a and I suppose the only thing that are is what positive about this is the availability of cell. And the fact that we can see the outrageous behavior that obviously. Killed George Floyd in Minneapolis. Allows US I think to some sometimes. Put aside your search for him big. Unity Instead, say this is a profoundly unacceptable. And start to turn the corner in eight now. What is it that we can do about it? When I blog about this weekend, of course was was quite personal. I woke up Saturday morning and had this on my mind as everybody did. and. This is something we should communicate about. I'm obviously not black leader in a business community him United States. We have a very diverse work group and wanted to communicate with them like the more I think about it. It is not just a question about what we Mary Do, which is really the focus of blog, but recognize that what any individual company can do is simply not enough. We've gotTA. Find a way to. Make a dramatic more progress can. Is Space than any single company? Can You well what does that translate into in real terms? Arnie we, all the conversations are underway in a number of different organizations, so the VRT for Jampel is is talking about fitness a real time as we speak. I think many of us are are using our networks, folks both inside and outside our companies to. Talk about places we can make a difference I think I. Think and must each of us do what we can with our workforce and with our partnerships, unity's where we do business, but I think that we can band together also through outfits like the Bart recognized that we've got to work on criminal justice issues which. Company can't do probably ending together and advocating. Criminal Justice around educational opportunity around access to healthcare around access to financial resources. These are for big areas that. Collectively. We can push for not just. What can we do as companies, but what can we? Help implement in the policy space. To to put this outrageous behavior bindis. SAY THAT! These are real time conversations that are happening with you and your peers at the Business Roundtable How quickly do you think that this is something that can, it can translate into action. We had Randal Stevenson a former head of the business roundtable on earlier this week, and he said that look when any of these big companies kind of put their mind to it, they they can have a significant amount of say in policy in Washington and that we've seen it happen time and time again. For issues that are near, and dear to any of these individual companies, hearts or that make a real difference for business business doesn't work free markets don't work in an environment where a large class of our people are perceiving and experiencing injustice, so we have an imperative to begin to use our muscle and are influenced to begin to affect policy change to address this. That this is something where? This is a moment that all of these companies are going to stick with us and say that this A. An agenda that has to carry down I do I do it again. By suggesting for a second, Bart ought to band together and use its force together. I'm not crying. Excuse the conduct that any individual company will be we will continue to be very active in this space as myriad, but I think collectively would be that much louder and I think the Bart and other organizations will move very quickly and will not let up on this. I think our employees basis demand. I think society demands it. I think fundamental aspects of fairness and the importance of opportunity. demands it and I think as a consequence. Is this event I? Don't know whether you had a chance to see prisoner after noon. But one of the things that I found some

Mastering the Menopause with Emma Bardwell

"We're GONNA be talking today about menopause which is a topic that probably we talked enough about until it happens to US often. Vet Light you pelvic floor or things that until you have to get to know it. You don't speak our set so I felt like let's just start off with. What is menopause for those the Dayton Yup absolutely? So you're right. It's not talked about and it's particularly not talked about. I think for younger women such as yourself so in a nutshell it is when your period stops Meno poor say menstruation Meno pause stop. The average age is fifty one. And it's usually a kind of natural part of aging Bart for some women. It might occur earlier and that might be because of genetics or it might be because of surgery and how about Peri. Menopause is at the stage leading up to us yet so paramount applause is actually probably the most important bit of the journey. I think because that's when all the kind of symptoms tend to rare and it can be quite a long journey actually for lots of women. I think there's this real kind of misnomer that it happens in your fifties and it happens overnight whereas actually that lead up that parry menopause can last up to a decade island and I always women often particularly younger. Women feel really kind of freaked out by that so I think it's really important. We don't WanNa kind of catastrophe is it. It's a totally natural part of aging. It happens to every single woman but yet I think it's really important that we are prepared and more interested in that way we kind of dive. Deep into the subject could question. I think because I realized through my own journey. There's a real lack of evidence based information out there so there's lots of women who have been through the journey and so therefore kind of thing that they know everything about it but actually there's a lot of misinformation so I think it's really important for women to get their information from experts. You know people who are actually qualified and also I think women are really underrepresented when it comes to kind of health particularly things I research. There's not enough research being done so I think there's a lot of women floundering. It can be really isolating menopause. I just wanted to kind of turn on its head. I wanted to support women and I wanted women to realize that it's not kind of game over. It's very much a time to be kind of embracing the fact that you've reached this life stage because it's a real privilege to age to get to that point absolutely. I'm touting thirty tomorrow got Michigan very old and I feel like every year every better. Have I WANNA be kind to myself have more wisdom and everyone says that my step mom said to me she would never want to go back to her twenty s because she feels so much happy within herself as he got older and. I think that's really wonderful thing that comes with age and probably something. We need to embrace more and talk about more thing. Yeah I think that's a wonderful way of looking at it and I think for my clients who come see me. It's not just about nutrition or Zeiss style advice. It's actually about regaining a sense of identity. Because you know it's amazing time to be alive you'll middle-age midlife honestly and how about premature menopause? Because I was saying to you before I know a few people kind of distant need that have gone through menopause or menopause symptoms in their twenties. Which is like you said. The average ages fifty one to lose. And you saying kind of ten years before that. You don't think this is going to happen to you until your forties all year. So why are potentially people getting it early? What is the reasons behind that? We don't actually know. It can be genetics or it can be the result of something like chemotherapy or if women have had their ovaries removed. We don't know but the stats are surprisingly high. Actually so early. Menopause which is sometimes go premature. Menopause happens to one in one hundred women to that under the age of forty. So that's quite high her and then under the age of thirty one in a thousand women and then under twenty one in ten thousand while. It's still possible. You liked everything. How many people are on the planets that still quite few people experience absolutely. And how does that impact your ability when you become Perryman? Who is making you less likely to conceive or are you still able to? Who's you're still getting periods but maybe less frequently? Yes so premature ovarian insufficiency which is early menopause. Basically you can still get pregnant but your chances are much reduced so you can still be late. So that's something definitely to bury. Mike's I think a lot of women have a real sense of panic if they want to have children. So that's different something to talk to your GPA about but in your forties if you'll just naturally going through peri menopause. So your eastern levels are plummeting. The not necessarily plummeting but they're kind of on a rollercoasters. They can really kind of p control and that is when women often get symptoms but you can still get pregnant but your chances are reduced. Okay how Stephanie. Get to know and so what are the symptoms? What are they simply? We're talking about? You might be getting todd ten years or less onerous yes. Let's not testify. What are the physical symptoms? That's talk about them fast. I was thinking of hot. Flushes is the kind of hot flashes. And night sweats. A kind of the most obvious common ones but there are. I think it's thirty. Four symptoms are. I think that's actually probably more like seventy so in a really diverse kind of range of things from ACNE SA- changes in skin oversee sagging because eastern plays a big role in college and production. So often women find. Baskin is more lax. There is things like insomnia. That's a pretty common one but also the psychological things so things like memory loss brain fog just a lack of

"The simpsons did really seem to understand that authority could be corrupt stupid punitive the system could be merciless and narrow minded enough to label a four with grader and underachiever the talking back to all of that more than just being cool could be truth telling all of this which is why Bart was so threatening to the status quo in the first place is also why bart looking like flava flav on a t shirt made some sense he also knew what time it was this is the one time I got live from school I drew sort of Bar Simpson on my jeans and the public enemy symbol and so that was being rebellious. That's I'm an easy fit perfectly you got you got suspended because of Bart and yes and public enemy my own my own my only suspicion ever so you're like exactly whatever worried about Parkinson's exactly exactly little social panic actually pay though he corrupted a poor Ohio industrial tomboy as Bard himself there was some hand wringing about Black Bart from within the black community articles about the phenomenon all quote someone who is worried that Black Bart like Bart is setting a bad example and some of the shirts it should be said look pretty offensive one of the variations of the Bart Marley shirts for example looks like a racist caricature that wasn't true of most the bootleg stuff though and Black Bart shirts just like the official merchandise kept selling nothing ever got less cool for offending or alarming concern grownups after all Fox was of two minds about the whole thing unofficial merchandise lost them money but it did keep the show on the cutting edge it was a good and it was bad really kept it relevant and an edgy.

professor of sociology at Grinnell College you know heavy metal was going to turn us into Satanists Dungeons dragons was gonNA have US join a call rap music was going to spark violence video games were either going to rot our brains or turn us in the violent thugs and so the the whole Simpson show is coming out of this context where there's all these fears about youth and this sense that pop culture can somehow be dangerous for youth the nineteen eighties was an anxious time the overt chaos of the nineteen sixties and seventies the civil rights movement the feminist movement the Vietnam War the Antiwar Movement Watergate had outwardly quieted down and Ronald Reagan had been elected president by promising kind of retrenchment a return to order too old fashioned American values but despite it being morning in America there was still so much darkness the AIDS crisis the continued threat of nuclear annihilation the crack epidemic a stagnant economy and the large scale changes happening to the structure of the American family with the rise of no fault divorce working mothers and single parent households and so there are these kind of shifts going on in the society both culturally and economically I just feel like a kind of a dangerous time for kids and so what happens then is rather than really account for these changes somehow enact new policy somehow pop culture is is to blame for all the social problems that people perceive panicking about pop culture's influence on children is not new in the nineteen fifties for example a widespread fear that comic books full of Horror Noir violence were making kid anti-social resulted in congressional hearings and the Comic Book Industry Regulating itself with a comic book code but stressing about pop culture impact on kids or listening or playing with something else heavy metal prince lyrics ice tea songs two live crew married with children Marilyn Manson first person shooter Games in the nineteen eighties fears about parenting or commonly expressed in terms of latchkey kids kids who are coming home after school letting themselves into the House and being raised by the television the problem was uninvolved parents. This is in stark contrast to now or the concern is the opposite helicopter parents who don't give their kids any space at all but honestly it was still easier for latchkey parents to see and comprehend whether kids were watching even if they caught it only glimpses because it was for one network TV show and for the other hang on a big TV the everybody could see media habits have changed so completely the kids can now watch screens anywhere often doing so alone whatever they're watching probably pretty incomprehensible to the adults in their lives anyway and over popular it is compared to network days it's totally niche not all about the parental I like the congressional threat to defend the National Endowment for the arts. Some of these concerns were bipartisan it was Tipper Gore the wife of then Democratic Senator Al Gore who led the charge to get a parental advisory sticker put on albums with explicit lyrics after she listened to Prince's Darling Nikki with her daughter motivating and in some instances or just passively aligning with it and others with a heightened alarm about mainstream popular culture there was particular to Evangelical Christians who Reagan had recently brought into the Republican fold Reagan had won the presidency in one thousand nine hundred for broadening the conservative coalition to include evangelicals aligning himself with oops like Jerry Falwell's moral majority James Dobson focus on the family throughout the nineteen eighty s focus on the family which was founded by Dobson in nineteen seventy seven became among other things a trusted watchdog Organization for Evangelical Families Looking for guidance about mainstream popular culture of which the organization was dreamily skeptical Hollywood was this place where people were actively trying to indoctrinate your children with all all of these terrible values of like disrespect for parents and wanting to lake swear and smoke or something like that Eliza Wilkinson is a film cricket vox and she had an evangelical focus on the family kind of upbringing would have never occurred to me to ask to watch it because I just knew instinctively that wasn't a thing we were going to do people were worried that their kids were going to want to be like bar and I think another big one was that like homer is depicted as kind of a slobby you know loser Guy And I remember personally as a child hearing a lot about how all dead this world was more likely if it's Bieber and less like homer Simpson.

"Everybody though the simpsons was boundary pushing reverend would you like to say grace dear God we pave roller stuff ourselves so thanks for nothing it was also a show about an intact churchgoing nuclear family where the father works the mom stays at home when everyone eats dinner together I mean they are trying to get their kid to say grace was the president of the United States attacking it anyway as an example of a degraded and degrading American family. Bush wasn't the only one William J Bennett the national drugs are had walked into a rehab center seeing a poster the simpsons and ad libbed? You guys aren't watching the simpsons are you that's not going to help you first lady Barbara Bush had called the show the dumbest thing I've ever seen there were stance had soft opened after Marge Simpson had written her a letter response principles all over the country band Bart Simpson shirts for containing the word Hell and potentially making underachiever nece aspirational this time it is Bart's wise cracking t shirts that are in trouble this one has been expelled from some schools for its profanity another underachiever and proud of it as been kicked out of classes from Orange California to Fremont Ohio reaction to the t shirt tempest is mixed in and we won't act if you're underachieving shouldn't be proud of it and there were plenty of parents not conservative ones even who are a little weary Bart's fresh mouth in my recollection and my mother does not corroborate this version of events by the way I wasn't allowed to get the Bar t shirt I wanted ray says eat my shorts and had to settle very disappointingly for one where he says Cowabunga Dude while hanging ten I rarely wore it Bush insulting the simpsons was drawing on all of this the way the show had become in certain circles a short end for how popular culture was leading the American family astray to begin to understand how the simpsons now an American institution could ever have seemed like such an alarmingly bad influence a man I look at the network it was airing on because the story of the simpsons is also the story of Fox the Fox Broadcasting Company Co founded by Ruby Murdoch and Barry diller began airing its first primetime series on Sunday nights in April of nineteen eighty seven at the time. ABC CBS and NBC Dominated Television and previous attempts to create a fourth network failed Fox at the start was operating at a deficit it was only available in eighty percent of homes it was never going to be able to beat the big three networks who are richer and more established at their own game so decided to counter program long before cable net flex Fox started out by trying to find I'm Mitch Fox when they launch a pretty bold interesting strategy up thinking that they're not going to be a big umbrella they're going to go after a very acidic demographic Jonathan Gray professor of media and Cultural Studies at the University of Wisconsin Madison and he wrote a book about the simpsons rather than just sort of gently after that demographic they're going to actively exclude instead of capitalize upon the exclusion of other demographic and what demographic is that like what older boring people I mean are there excluding and what who they're going after sort of younger folk who who get it who are sick and tired of the the big tent gentle humor who wants edge it's really going after that group and what that means it sending clear messages that it just doesn't hear about a parental group disdain for the parental group was very much on display in Fox's I two primetime series one of which was the Raunchy comedy married with children which thumbed its nose like crazy at the uplifting family sitcom the other it was the tracey ullman show which featured short interstitial videos of googly eyed jerkily family called the Simpsons Well Goodnight Shun Dad aw what is the mind is just a system of impulses is or is it something tangible relax given how famous the characters are and how widely style has been adopted it's really hard to understand anew the simpsons was when it first premiered but one at arrived it was unprecedented for one thing it was a cartoon the last cartoon to Aaron Primetime had been the flintstones nineteen sixty to nineteen sixty six which needless to say had a very different the simpsons in contrast was Edgy Adult Referential Satirical Anti Earnest and it assumed that people watching at home could keep up Hari Kondabolu is a comedian and he grew up loving the sends there was one thing where episode where I remember like Lisa was talking about Poplin Arruda Pablo said laughter is the language of the so I am familiar with the except amidst just stuff like that like it was just so you felt cool kind of being on the inside of you didn't know the references you wanted to know the references made it okay to have an inside joke it made you want to learn more the show was also uniquely disrespectful on the simpsons powers-that-be could be stupid or worse it was skeptical of Everything Dad's principles bosses religion and the TV Sitcom itself but still build upon the was to Lucius British Sitcom App into better hard-drinking yet loving family of soccer hooligans if they're not having a go with a bird they're having a row with a winker there was nothing like that on prime time TV or late night TV Bill Oakley a comedy writer became a staff writer on the simpsons in his third season was all about really formulaic things about like respecting you know like respecting your father in the family and not using profanity and there was an immense number of ooh the one thousand nine hundred eighty s generally speaking time of Cute Tame Middleclass family shows full of sage grownups adorable equipping kids moral lessons there were dozens of series like this full house growing pains family matters but the best example was the dominant sitcoms of the nineteen eighties the Cosby show starring the affluent Jio loving African American family the huxtables instead of acting disappointed because I'm not like you maybe you can just accept why am I love me anyway because I'm your son the simpsons along with married with children Roseanne which began in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight on ABC with a direct challenge to the idealized family show. I think you'll find this will win you the respect of your family and friends the simpsons for one thing we're not aspirational at all in the fourth ever episode of the show Dufy Dad homer it becomes so upset about his family's embarrassing bad behavior the brings them to a therapist the therapist after trying everything including having the family administer electric shocks to each other gives up he can't fix them they are unfixable he eventually refunds their money which of course they used to buy a new TV excuse me dear should we be heading down flicked between the simpsons and the cosby show was made explicit at the start of the simpsons second season when Fox moved the show would air at exactly the same time as cosby were at best it in the overnight ratings this story it was a very big deal at the time like such a big deal I remember talking about it with my classmates and that's not because we were ratings obsessed nine year olds because it was everywhere a business story but one freighted with meaning father take down the cosby show of Bambi and it was multicultural diverse and instead you know we get Bart Simpson in the face off between the simpsons and the Cosby's neither was understood entirely as a fiction there were symbols and stand ins for the American family and here was the dysfunctional rude struggling Simpson's a thorn in the side of phony American ideal Eliza toppling the huxtables the pinnacle of highly functional domesticity. Theo could eat bart's shorts George Oh you Bush's remarks about the simpsons would have been a lot more current if he'd used the huxtables instead of the Waltons he didn't because for a number of reasons the huxtables didn't conjure the nostalgic vision of the American past he was trying to ply his voters with the Waltons kind of did a period TV drama that aired in the nineteen seventies the Waltons was about a large close white family in Virginia in the Nineteen Thirties and forties it did not represent exactly what Bush wanted to for one thing much of it was set during the depression and the waltons went through lots of hard times Caboche was attributing to it a Sunnier Weird Nostalgia for the fifties and I say weird because it's an established that's always kind of been based in fact upon sitcoms and suggesting like believing that leave it to be actually is health things looked in the fifties which they didn't so yeah back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two the president of the United States it was saying that America's future ought to be more like it's passed when the world looked a certain way families were still wholesome and respectful and times were yes great when people talk about how the nation was great it was great for all sorts of people and the lie that was being told to us by allow. These sitcoms is precisely what the simpsons are making fun of and I think that's why the simpsons could be recognized as threatening because what the simpsons are saying is he's not just that families don't look like this but then they never looked like this.

I think you'll find this will win you the respect of your family and friends the simpsons for one thing we're not aspirational at all in the fourth ever episode of the show Dufy Dad homer it becomes so upset about his family's embarrassing bad behavior the brings them to a therapist the therapist after trying everything including having the family administer electric shocks to each other gives up he can't fix them they are unfixable he eventually refunds their money which of course they used to buy a new TV excuse me dear should we be heading down Pawnshop TV that piece of junk forget it we're going to get a new TV what he wanted screen realistic flesh tones the flicked between the simpsons and the cosby show was made explicit at the start of the simpsons second season when Fox moved the show would air at exactly the same time as Cosby were at best it in the overnight ratings this story it was a very big deal at the time like such a big deal I remember talking about it with my classmates and that's not because we were ratings obsessed nine year olds because it was everywhere a business story but one freighted with meaning father take down the cosby show of Bambi and it was multicultural diverse and instead you know we get Bart Simpson in the face off between the simpsons and the COSBY's neither was understood entirely as a fiction there were symbols and stand ins for the American family and here was the dysfunctional rude struggling Simpson's a thorn in the side of phony American ideal Eliza toppling the huxtables the pinnacle of highly functional domesticity Theo could eat bart's shorts George Oh you Bush's remarks about the simpsons would have been a lot more current if he'd used the huxtables instead of the waltons he didn't because for a number of reasons the huxtables didn't conjure the nostalgic vision of the American past he was trying to ply his voters with the Waltons kind of did a period. TV drama that aired in the nineteen seventies the Waltons was about a large close white family in Virginia in the Nineteen Thirties and forties it did not represent exactly what Bush wanted to for one thing much of it was set during the depression and the Waltons went through lots of hard times caboche was attributing to it a Sunnier weird nostalgia for the fifties and I say weird because it's an established that's always kind of been based in fact upon sitcoms and suggesting it was saying that America's future ought to be more like it's passed when the world looked a certain way families were still wholesome and respectful and times were yes great when people talk about how the nation was great it was great for all sorts of people and the lie that was being told to us by he's not just that families don't look like this but then they never looked like this.

"But when he went into an started talking to. Employees. That's when I saw what was going on? With Bart Starr, usually with his wife, who always had a smile on her face always hundred percent of the time is wife cherry. They would just wanna walk through the offices and they really didn't want anyone to make a fuss over the didn't want to be led around. They just wanna walk, and they'd stop at the desk, and they'd see pictures and they talk about. Oh, that's your daughter. How old is she? What is she into? She liked dance. She liked gymnastics. What's her favorite pet? What's your favorite color, and these were sincere questions and they would follow up with handwritten notes everyone? I know in the office got a handwritten note from Bart star, including me. I got to any ended every Renault with the exact same line, which was thank you for all you do for the Green Bay Packers. It was cherished because what the Bart Starr. They're not they're not minimum around or not many of them left the truly truly cared about everyone, but themselves. Obviously, this was something that, you know, you see a person like that. And you think how are they like that? I used to watch him and I would watch the way people interacted with him. And more importantly, after seeing this few times, I would watch the person who interacted with Bart after Bart walked away and inevitably inevitably that person man or woman would have a smile on their face. They would kind of look around. They look down they'd smile. They go back to work, little more pep in their step. It was. I mean just thinking about it gets me a little choked up because he left a trail of appanage wherever he went Bart. Starr was that special where he took such a sincere interest? In people that had nothing to give him had no way to pay him back. There was no quid pro quo. He just had an interest in even in his darkest days as chronicle by Peter King in that moving tribute he did with Aaron Rodgers last year. Was you saw the bar, you know, trying to get the words out not about him not about anything else. But about Aaron he wanted to do it for Aaron. He wanted to everything for everyone else. It just it just impressed me so much. And, you know, close friend of mine shared something with me after this, and it was a letter that his father, my close friends father had sent had sent a letter to bar in nineteen seventy. Six basic criticizing BART's coaching, and discussed it with the play on the field, as you know, they weren't a good team under bar when he was a coach. So Bart writes back my friend, I put this on Twitter. I'll just read it, dear Mr. clump ner..

"Guru Brad Goodman who uses. Bart irreverent attitude as a new example of how people should behave the entire town of Springfield begins to act like Bart who. I enjoyed things but begins to feel that his role as troublemaker is usurped during the inaugural. Do what you feel festival several things. Go wrong in the town decides to stop acting like Bart. I really like how that was like a full book report. I like how moralistic this episode is without being preachy in a way that is becoming. Yeah. And in a way, it was kind of. I mean, you could all the stuff that he was talking about is kind of this whole self love self care movement. That's really just about. I mean, just, but it's kind of like an excuse to be a jerk, and yeah, and south importance and entitlement and exactly being considerate of other people's boundaries or or feelings not falling into the shame spiral. Rainbow. Oh, yeah. The the well there is like the there's a lot of self be terms that are being like made fun of here was because it was kind of those in the the nineties when the early nineties mid nineties when that was kind of having thing. And now, it's it almost four told the resurgence too because it was like, okay. What's going on right now? Let's kind of make make it a little more exaggerated and ridiculous. And now some of the stuff that he was saying I've seen this in echo park. Yeah. Yeah. Silverlake Kobe regional humor the need. It throwing crystal shop. We got a. In addition to the self-help stuff another very nineties thing. I think you know, this is existed throughout time in some way or another. But the idea of your identity. And how important it is to kind of be the only person who kind of does what you do. I saw that happen. A lot on Nickelodeon shows. There's an episode where everybody starts dressing like Doug in in. Doug. And it really, well, those are real cliff-hanger. Thank you. Waiting with baited breath. A. Actually cut to the break in between that. But. Dressing like, Doug and all that in round. How? It's something where you know. Everyone's kind of Doug has remember this. But everyone starts everyone's wondering like, you know, you know, you're dressing like all of us. How can you prove it? And he has a whole closet of his Doug outfits. Finally, everyone goes back to be a normal. And they're just like, oh that outfit is so last season. And it's just kind of a similar episode that of course, the Simpsons did better. But I love it episode. And it's something I've also seen in. Hey Arnold in different types of shows. It's funny..
