"It is the morning of November 22nd, 1718 of the coast of North Carolina. The crystal blue waters in the okra Coke inlet listen in the sunlight. Robert Maynard is a lieutenant in the British navy. His ship, the Jane, sails in concert with the ranger. Together they creep through the shimmering waters on the hunt for pirates. For years, the notorious pirate blackbeard has pillaged and plundered the Caribbean. Now, his attention is on the eastern seaboard of North America. For months, he's blockaded ports, raided ships and stolen vessels. But his tyranny has gone on long enough. It's reported blackbeard is now operating out of ocracoke island, a narrow and uninhabited strip of land. Governor Alexander spots with a Virginia has tasked lieutenant Maynard with bringing blackbeard to justice. By any means necessary. May not his days out of Virginia having sailed up the James river. He has stopped ships going in and out of the ocracoke inlet to quash any warnings of their approach. But Maynard has one major disadvantage. He doesn't have the firepower of naval vessels. The Jane and the ranger are gunless sloops that may not commandeered for this surprise attack. The only weaponry is what the soldiers can carry. As Maynard's ship comes around the island, he peers through his scope. There she is. Blackbeard's sloop, the adventure, sat peacefully at anchor. They've got her. The ranger comes from the other direction. Maynard has trapped blackbeard. Also he thinks. Through the scope, Maynard sees that the pirate crew is thin. Only a handful of men are on deck. Those on board are hung over from a night of drinking, and the rest of blackbeard's men are on shore. There's no escape now. The union Jack unfurls on both vessels as they approach the anchored pirates. The pirate crew sound the alarm. Blackbeard cuts the anchor and the ship hastily sets off. Without cannons, Maynard's men fire muskets at the adventure. But they do minor damage. Having lost the element of surprise. Maynard watches in horror as the adventure broadsides the ranger with cannon fire. The ranger is crippled and her crew were mostly dead, including their captain and first officer. The adventure begins to turn towards the Jain. Maynard orders his man at the helm to take evasive maneuvers, but the crew suddenly jerk forward as the Jane comes to a crashing out. They've hit a sandbar. Maynard orders the men to throw all non-essential items overboard to lighten the vessel. If they don't break free, black bear will cripple them just like the ranger. This will all be for nothing. The adventure continues to maneuver, readying to fire. The Jain is strength with grape shot. Iron pellets rake the ship, causing carnage, 20 of Maynard's men are dead, others rise in agony on the blood soaked deck. But the Jane is free of the sandbar and the two ships close the gap between each other. Anticipating the black bed will board them may not orders his surviving men into the hold and are ready their pistols. Only he and his helmsman remain above board. Maynard covers his head. The pirates are lobbing grenades onto the deck, grappling hooks tether the ships together and the pirates swing over. Blackbeard, sensing victory is at hand, is first over the rail. Maynard shouts the command to attack, bursting from the hold of the hidden naval officers, armed with pistols muskets and cutlasses may not surprise attack catches the pirates off guard. The fight is quick, and vicious, a thick cloud of gun and grenade smoke engulfs the deck of the Jain. Through the smoke, Maynard locks eyes with black beard. With cutlasses drawn. The two charged each other. The swords crash and beat against one another. Maynard slices blackbeard's arm. The pirate growls from the pain. Maynard dodges blackbeard's blade as he tries to slash at his belly. Blackbeard is now in a frenzy, pressing in on Maynard, backing him into the mast. But baynard finds an opening and jabs blackbeard. Before blackbeard can attack again, Maynard's men fire at the pirate captain. Blackbeard stumbles and drops to his knees. The frenzied look, drains from his face. Blackbeard is slain. The British navy overpower the remaining pirates. They have surrendered within minutes of their raid. Blackbeard lies at Maynard's feet. The pirate's corpse is 5 bullet wounds and some 20 cuts. But Maynard wants a trophy. He brings his cutlas down on the pirate's neck and slice his blackbeard's head clean off. Blackbeard's body is then thrown into the water to become fish food. Taking a clump of blackbeard stills sweaty, greasy black hair. Maynard lifts it and shows off the decapitated head to the captured pirates. His men, cheer. Victory. As Maynard returns to the colony of Virginia, a hero, he makes sure everyone witnesses his success. Hanging from the bow of Maynard's ship is blackbeard's severed head. Blackbeard.

"Final moments with Tennessee Senator Marshall Blackbeard if Joe Biden You know in the dark at night is transporting illegal immigrants into the state of Tennessee. What would prevent the state of Tennessee or any other state from chartering buses? And sending the people that they sent to your state illegally, that they expect you to take care of, and provide health care and and food and shelter and education. What would be what would prohibit you from sending them to Washington and maybe dropping them off at 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue. I know that our governors and our state legislatures are working on how they respond to what the administration is doing and you know, we have to realize that Children that are coming through these 15,000 Children. They are traumatized Children, and they require a high Level of service. And while these Children are in U. S custody, we do not want these Children to be mistreated, But But they're being mistreated. Put in Biden's cages that be mistreated. Just dumped in in states where they know they don't know a single person. So if if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are insisting that they won't enforce the federal laws of this country, why don't why don't we very you know, graciously and and protect. We protect the kids and and put them on buses and offer them food and water and and maybe get every kid a toy and just say Okay, we're taking you to Washington because Job. Apparently, uh, forgot his home address because we're not responsible for taking care of you. Well and as you are aware governor leave when the federal government called Governor Li there in Tennessee to ask if they would accept more of the migrant Children. They declined that request. But the federal government did it anyway. And I know that our General Assembly and the governor are looking at ways to address this issue and ways to respond. And they have been well, let us know when you find out but we have to run a lot going on in Washington. We'll continue to watch Senator Blackburn Thanks for being with us. Thanks.

"Origins of the Han coronavirus and much more also What's going on with the latest in terms of border policy, and the second order effects of it that go far beyond the actual border and borders on itself. We're joined now by Senator Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee to talk about the senator Blackburn. Thanks for thanks for being with us. I'm delighted to be with you. Thank you for having me on what are your biggest takeaways? A member of the U. S. Senate, who now is going to be looking at the issue of US funding through a sub grant that Dr Fauci has admitted occurred. Money went from taxpayers funneled through a third party to the Wuhan lab doing research into bat viruses. We also know that Fauci has has flip flopped on a number of of issues. And people are calling for some accountability here. What do you think should happen? And you believe that there's a role for the Senate to play? Well, I do think that there is a very important role for the Senate to play because we are responsible for this oversight. And when you look at the money that went into various groups that were funding this research, and when you He will not answer the question as to whether or not there was participation in gain of function research. And if that was funded during the time of the Obama administration, this is something that we do need to review what we do know. Is that during Secretary Pompeo owes time at the Department of State that our diplomatic scientists had expressed concerns. About what was happening at the Wuhan lab. So it is time for Dr Fauci to actually, you know, tell us what he what he knows, And it is time that We began a series of investigations. If if the president is going to shut down the State Department's investigation into the Wuhan lab, it's going to depend On those of us in Congress to pick that up and figure out exactly what happened. We know that over a serious of decades, China took our job. Moved our manufacturing to China encourage us companies to become reliant on then, and then what did they do? They sent us this virus. So finding out how it started. Knowing if it did indeed escape from the lab through bunch gain of function research this they were doing in that lab. This is a question that needs to be answered. We also know that the as you mentioned that the Biden administration there's report out that they may have shut down or that the Biden administration came in and said that State Department officials who were trying to look into and collect information about what happened with the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. That Biden said gnome or that they cut this off it can. What possible reason Senator could they have for doing that? Are aren't we all supposed to be on the same page about getting The truth about what happened with the origins of this virus. We should all be on the same page. You can't prevent something like this from happening again. If you don't know how it happened in the first place. So it is. Only something that would embolden China. But look at Joe Biden's policy. He wants to go to green energy. Okay, well, who makes solar panels China to make its wind turbines China who makes the batteries for electric cars. China. Who is it that is cornering the market when it comes to manufacturing, antibiotic and active pharmaceutical ingredients that are necessary for vaccine. Here again, that is China. And what President Biden has done with his decisions is to do make decisions that are going to encourage China. And then decisions that are not going to bolster us manufacturing US research. U S sovereignty. Look, it's the border. Us protecting US citizens. Look at what happened with coded 19, so the priority should be protecting this country was making a senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. Senator. I want to ask about something going on in your home state. Their reports the buying administration is flying illegal alien Children into Tennessee often. In the middle of the night. It seems like they're trying to keep a very low profile on this without any involvement or knowledge of the community. Elected officials like the governor you as a senator for Tennessee. What can you tell us about this? And it does a J. Jess have have answers for you. H. I guess that's not have answers. Indeed, they are avoiding answers. And in addition to the four planes that landed it, Wilson Air in the middle of the night, we talked to a Tennessee and Who has he was on a flight from Dallas to Chattanooga that ended up landing at about one o'clock in the morning, and there was a chef. Run for think 10 to 15. Children that were not us speaking Children. They were migrant Children. This individual talked to the chef run. They were going to Chattanooga to go to be housed in a facility. They had a new backpack. Clothes I found so this is taxpayer dollars that are being used to help the cartels finished the job to say you're doing to keep Nto get these migrants into the country and to position them whether it is in the shelter or sending them to a sponsor, which many times The sponsor. So called sponsor they're going to is affiliated with labor work crew are anonymous, 13 gang or Drug ring or a sex trafficking organization. Senator Blackbeard. I know you've introduced a bill recently that would try To deal with the border crisis, which keeps its ongoing and actually worsening everyone that I've talked to you down there, and I recently was at the border myself. No one thinks that this has been dealt with effectively really hasn't dealt with it all by the body administration. Kamila Harris, the vice president and borders are has still as I speak you yet to go down there. Can you tell us about your your effort to do in state migrant protection protocols here? Yes. The migrant protection protocol. This is basically President Trump's remain in Mexico policy, and I have turned that into legislation that we are seeking co sponsors for in the Senate were trying to push this forward the Border Patrol. Regularly talks about how effective that policy Woz because if you had people coming to the southern border, and they wanted to apply for asylum, they had to remain either in their home country. Or in Mexico until the time of that asylum hearing. People were granted asylum somewhere sent back to their home country because the claims were not valid. Now, the Biden administration did away with that policy. And what they have done since Joe Biden was sworn in. They have had over a half million over a half million illegal aliens approach the border to claim asylum. Of thereby they are having to process them, which is catch and then release them into the country. The release part of catch and release And then at some point in the future, maybe a year, two years, three years they will have a new asylum hearing. So this is what this is A big part of what is wrong with that process and reinstating those protocols would be a tremendous help to our border patrol. Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. Thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate you being here. We'll talk to you soon. Thank you. Bye bye. One of the former White House chief of staff on how America last is the Biden. Foreign policy will explain in.

"Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A.

"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid.

"blackbeard" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"Right. It was great to have us Senator Marshall Blackbeard. She's on the Senate Judiciary Committee. She'll be there. I owe at the hearings kind of pushing back on the narrative. So many of your hearing the mainstream media making people nervous about Judge barrettes potential confirmation because of two U. S. Senators. Have any Republican on the committee coming down with Cove it But as you heard from her, they're going to work work to push this through and get judge very confirmed. First. It goes through the committee hearing that starts next week. That will get out of committee around the 22nd. And then it will be probably around 26 to the 30th somewhere there, where the U. S said I could have a vote. The votes appear to be there. Without the need for vice president pits and and if he is needed, he can. He can cast tiebreaking votes, both for culture to be the 51st vote and for the 51st vote to confirm Judge Baird. But again, I want to follow this closely. We're going to continue to reach out to members of the City Judiciary Committee. Like Senator Blackburn to get updates on this because you're going to hear from the media. This is dangerous. This shouldn't have course you already heard. This shouldn't happen. Even though history shows it always happens and this is part of elections having consequences. Republican President Republican Senate They get confirmed 17 and 19 times So far, this would be if she gets confirmed. Judge Baird 18 out of 20 times, So it's a It's you know, it's 90%. You'll get confirmed in this kind of scenario find, you know during the election year. We have the same party in charge the White House president as the Senate If you flip that around like what President Obama had to deal with it goes the exact opposite. It's two out of 10. So it's a 90% chance you're going to Fail. It's going very rare that you get someone through when you don't control your party does not control the U. S. Senate. And again, this is all the Senate's hands down. The president did his job. He made the nomination, but I do want to go right to. So we keep people update on Judge Bear. We're working on the hill. You could update people quickly on that. But we've got break huge breaking news because we've all heard that about. The fact that the Obama administration, the CIA and Britain knew that the Russians Intel Figured out from that that you know we were spying on there. They were spying on Clinton campaign, I guess. But it was because they knew that they were coming up in the Clinton campaigned as going to be a kind of a somewhat to blame to distract from the fact that she had a private email server. It was conducting business on it. Classified documents FBI investigating. We know all that. What happen with Kobe? But not only that Russia was going to get blamed But that Hillary Clinton's adviser told her and she accepted this plan that will tie the Russians and say they're working with the Trump campaign. We know now that Brigid At least some time after July 28th 2016 because that's in his notes that I'm holding in my hands right now briefed the president on this Briefed Jim Kobe on this Briefed Denis McDonough, the White House chief of staff. On this ad. Susan Rice, the national security advisor on the stand. Dejan Kobe just testified he'd ever had heard about it. The CIA. We have a document here. With redactions but the CIA giving the information to the FBI on this so they could conduct an investigation and who is it to Peter struck? So the idea that they didn't know about this is false. We don't know if they ever even investigated it. It doesn't appear that they did. Well look, the testimony from former director Comey that it did not ring a bell Jordan. I got to tell you, that's just a lie. I mean, there's just no other explanation. Other than that, it was a lie. I do just quickly to parting comments about me about what we heard from Senator Blackburn. She she mentioned people really need to hear this Jordan. Senator Harris, running for vice president has been voting by proxy inside the committee for for months now, so the idea that the senators might be allowed to do that is not out of step with the norm, in fact, is right within the norm. Senator Harris has been doing it. And secondly, the reason you quoted the statistics about whether or not the Senate controls the same party controls the senator's controls the White House Jordan. That's important because the reason these powers were separated between the branches was to give the American people a midterm opportunity to come back and say, Do we want to affirm the president? Do we want to check the president? That was by design? But on this breaking news, Jordan and just we talked about it a little bit in the first segment of the broadcast, But, you know, I was already convinced that the White House was well, it was well aware of this because of what we knew. Prior to this. We knew about the January 5th. Oval Office meeting, which was mostly about Flynn and the quote unquote Russia threat. We also knew that Obama that briefing was well known inside the F B. I agents Jordan. We're talking about the fact that Obama had been briefed. This was a regular practice. This was something that was ongoing but now in black and white in these declassified documents that we have today. We know that that that director Brennan was directly briefing the president, not just about what was happening Jordan but about the fact that Hillary Clinton had approved the scheme. So if that's sort of the groundwork that you lay Jordan the question that it begs for me was if there was a campaign to be investigated. Why was that campaign? Not Hillary Clinton's if there was a thought that maybe there was one campaign or another cooperating with a foreign power to alter the elections? Doesn't the information show that the campaign that might have been worth investigating was Hillary Clinton's? And yet we know that that was not the course that was taken. They took the bait from the Hillary Clinton campaign, and they went on this multi year effort to investigate the Trump campaign. I got to tell you, Jordan, the cat is out of the bag. This is no longer speculation. It's in black and white, and there are more documents coming. But for my money, Jordan, we might have more smoking guns. But for my money, we have all that we need. We know that everyone was in on it. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, this is I want to go through the letter for everybody. This is this is John Brigid's notes. It was declassified just just recently, just yesterday. And not all of it has been. But now that the president has said to declassify everything, so no, no Ah, no redactions. No redactions. He has the powers the president states to declassify anything he wants whatever he wants. No questions asked. And so we should be getting this very sued and a lot more information without any of this thes markings. He's about had it..

Are Individuals actually don't live in the sea they sailed it once upon a time. So this is our pirate tour. Yeah. We're GONNA, be talking about some of the most notorious pirates of pirate yesterday but I a lovely review from one of you may my favorite part this one is from macy Spencer. She says, awesome I love the tour concept very well researched and lighthearted humor to get past the disturbing part. You're welcome very fun to listen to can't wait to hear more a five star review. Thanks, macy. Thank you very much, macy. Tour Japan's GonNa Start us. Yeah I'M GONNA start. US off with it's kind of near to home for me because I used to live in. Virginia when I in the nineties. When I was a baby. And I actually was alive during the time that they uncovered this pirate ship off the coast of North Carolina. Wow Yeah. So we're talking about blackbeard a name I'm sure many of you have heard before. So. Not much is really known about blackbeard's early life before he turned to piracy kind of like most other pirates they. Try to keep their private life private. He was commonly known as Edward teach or thatch, and in some sources maybe even Drummond. He was probably born sometime in the sixteen eighties. And probably in Bristol England or Jamaica or New York or California or else live. The longer history on the more speculations come about this guy. So commonly, what's pretty common across all sources is that Edward teach and from Bristol but okay yeah which would make sense at the time. The Porter Bristol was important in terms of international trade, and so there would be a lot of ships going in and out especially slave trade in class. So it's been speculated that this is how blackbeard got his start on the high seas. Okra. During the. War of Spanish Succession or Queens War he served as a privateer which essentially someone who does the work of a pirate but under the order and discretion of the crown. Thank for only attacking enemy ships and the loot that was plundered had to be shared with the government Yup I'm definitely noticing trends yet however once the war was over like most pirates, he was unemployed had nothing else to do, and so he decided the pirates life was for him. Many pirates got their start this way because they had a taste for it while being a privateer, the freedom of the seas and plundering whatever you want. Later, they did it illegally the parents life for me never I feel like a video watched on my guy said something about like you know they did these things as the government wanted of them to. And then When there was no more demand for from the government, they did it anyway. so much in seventeen sixteen, he ventured to Nas our in new providence and he was taken under the wing of Captain Benjamin Horne Igal Horny goal was impressed with blackberry because he showed a tremendous amount of courage fierceness also clever and a quick study. So because of how intelligent blackbeard was that, he probably came from a well educated family. because. He was literate. He had the ability to read maps and do complex calculations and things for navigation. So he wasn't just a dumb pirate is actually really smart. So blackbird quickly ascended to the ranks from crew member to partner, and the two were a great dynamic duo plundering ships from all over the world I'll acute, it's like us but know evil, but if we were pirates. Gold had taught blackbeard that fierce reputation was far more effective than the barbaric and brutal tactics. The other pirates used and this piece of advice stuck out to Blackbeard, which was the one thing that set him apart from everyone else. There was speculation that blackbeard never actually killed anyone himself mostly because he didn't have to people feared him so much that they would surrender immediately upon seeing that it was in fact blackbeard standing in front of them. That's interesting. Yeah. Like how do you build a reputation that scary without killing anyone? Yeah. Because he's really he's really clever and really charismatic and he the jobs that he did were very calculated. So he should build his reputation I wonder if he also like maybe sort of the the the show or the tell but don't show rather were kind like describes what I'll do to you if you don't surrender right without ever actually do it and it's that fear that's like Oh okay. Yeah are are thought to happen yeah. In seventeen seventeen, the two captured a French merchant ship called La Concorde at the time the ship was carrying sixteen cannons, seventy five crewmen, five hundred slaves and twenty pounds of gold dust mortar gold blackbeard flank the ship, and with a combined power of one hundred and fifty men and twenty cannons. Knowing, they were outnumbered and outgunned the French. Sailors surrendered car the pirates then forced the ship to sail to a nearby island where they dropped almost everyone off onshore and left them with a smaller ship while blackbeard claimed law concord for himself, and some of the sailors decided to join up with blackbeard voluntarily while some were taken by force such as Cook Surgeons and carpenters and the ship the law concord lack beard renamed to his flagship Queen Ann's revenge. Under in the same year, Hornbill decided to essentially retire as a pirate and the King's pardon where he then became a pirate hunter but then the to never saw each other again So it was supposedly an amicable split Horny gold, which is wanted to retire and blackbeard was at the beginning of his game. So he wanted to continue. So they split amicably and as I mentioned before blackbeard worked to cultivate himself with a fearsome reputation. He had a gruff appearance with his long jet black hair and beard, and he would often tie his beard into braids with colorful ribbons. But. Although that might not sound scary. He would also tie quick lighting fuses or matches to these braids as well as put them under his hat. So in battle, his head would be surrounded by smoke giving him the appearance of a demon SMART, Ass Right Like why would you think of doing that? yeah. I would never think of putting fuses anywhere near my face. Charles Johnson most likely a pseudonym wrote a book called a history of the pirates, the early seventeen hundreds, and it's been rewritten multiple times. But in the seventeen twenty, four addition, he stated about BLACKBEARD's facial hair quote which like a frightful meteor covered.

"blackbeard" Discussed on WGN Radio

"In the news this week that a very famous restaurant award winning with lots of accolades Blackbird. It was actually one of the pioneer sort of restaurants in the West Loop area, which of course, now is so popular and has restaurant row. Closed a casualty of covert 19. And so we thought we'd get a little bit more in depth on this story on joining us now is she under Rahm? She's a cookbook author and editor of Plate. It's an award winning Food magazine for chefs hash under. How are you? Hi. I'm doing well. Think. How you doing? Really? Well, thanks so much for joining us. So, you know, before we talk about sort of all the things that you were involved with, so tell us how you felt when you heard that Blackbeard was closing. I know that you have a lot of personal ties there. You know what I mean? Obviously, what's happening that the pandemic and everything. It's been horrible but finding out that black word with clothing with just such a punch in the gut. I mean, this is a restaurant that means so much to me means so much to. I think almost everyone in Chicago being and it's devastating, frankly, to think that this restaurant that really transformed our city is I'm not gonna be able T survive. And well, before you tell us whether or not you were surprised to hear the news for folks that are aren't that involved in the food scene? Or maybe they don't go out as much to eat or are never ate a Blackbird. Why it Was Blackbeard's so important So what could opened at the end of 1997 and at the time in Chicago, you could go to like pretty formal fine dining restaurant. You could go to more casual kind of like More like Red Sox Italian spot You could get a more themed restaurant like the lettuce on your Can. You thought, But there wasn't anything that served this kind of fine dining level food in a more casual atmosphere and police. They don't think twice about going out to a nice restaurant, wearing jeans and a pop or something. Back then you just didn't And and the thing was black Word opened with this idea that we're gonna have this amazing food and we're gonna have a wonderful service and this beautiful room. But come as you are. And it really wass the first restaurants that embraced that file. That is, you know that you see all over the country now and well, I mean, When Blackwood opened, so I was in. I was in culinary school in New York, and I came out to Chicago to do my ector NW ship, which is like a six month Period of working in a restaurant you do halfway halfway through culinary school. I came out Chicago to do that, and we were like in the Randolph Street just getting started. Certainly there were no restaurant over by Blackbird. No one thought Like we were sort of like not very cool kids on this block Hard to imagine. I know, I know. But it's also the restaurant that you know one, if not the only restaurants from the late nineties on Randolph Street that You know, I was still going and thriving up until up until Cove ahead. Wow, you know, so it's really a restaurant that helped put Chicago on the map in terms of being a food city, so really sort of ignited that. It really did. And I, you know, I talked to shaft and food writers from all over the country and they would come to Chicago. But one thing or the other would avenge the restaurant show or something, And they would just be like, all right. Everyone is telling me about this restaurant Blackbeard and Paul wasn't necessarily a name chef at the time. Um, chefs were really you know, there were a few exceptions. Like the celebrity chefs like failing, um, Chef March very well known. And so it was. It was a restaurant that from the get go had this huge buzz in the industry. And so it was crazy when I was working there and Charlie Trotter would come in John Hogan would come in Nancy Silverton would be in town from Los Angeles. And, you know, creating that, you know, Librium Bakery and her baking and restaurant empire out there and she would come in and it's like, Oh, my gosh, like we would it also, you know, it had one of the first open kitchen. That I've seen in Chicago at the time, so we would sort of dock in the back and just have our little freak out, though, Am I really for Charlie Trotter without like weeping, But so you're talking about all of these superstar chefs, and this was even before they were sort of these chefs, celebrities that have become famous through television shows. That would dying here, people that would, you know, make Chicago a destination trip just to die in there. And then sort of. Not only were they at the forefront in terms of pushing the envelope with food, but also with the aesthetic, too. So it sounds like We've explained why it's important to us. But why, you know? Were you surprised to hear the news? And are you worried for other restaurants? I was surprised to hear the news and I think it's just that You know, we're all like, I think what we learn about the pandemic and what we think of about the future keeps changing on a week to week basis, I remember doesn't seem that long ago that I thought that we were being locked down for two weeks, and then we'd all go back to work and everything would be fine. And now I guess I kind of thought hoped. Well, they can just kind of hang on and keep going. But when you think about it, you know, one of the one of the really notable things flattered is this incredible week design and it's the same design it open with it. It's really timeless, timeless, but it is not conducive to socially distant dining and sew it. You know, And it's so much more difficult to pull that off in a restaurant like Blackbeard, which is a four star establishment. And is it not stuffy, informal, but it's harder to be able to do that, as opposed to a more casual place. So they opened the back next door several years ago and vacuum more of the Mediterranean influence Wine bar, and it's just as tight quarters in there, but I think that is a little bit. Aah! It'll be easier to imagine getting food from the back of the take out and it just seemed like it makes perfect sense. But it's just so sad so that I mean, everyone. I've talked to you, Chef. Just run into three people around the city Writers were all just like, Oh, God, not black word, but, yeah, I think I think it's one of I think we're going to see a lot more of this. I mean, right now we're doing this dance of back and forth. Can you Okay? Can you just say to do takeout? It saved too..

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit Crumb. Today we talk about the superstitions pirates although there were intelligent pirates educated pirates slight Gracia Molly who spoke Gaelic and Latin fluently. There was captain kid who owned huge amounts of property in New York and there was blackbeard former teacher. But there were superstitions like cats were thought to carry a gale in their tail. So black cat frolicking on the deck was assigned. Gail was imminent to drown was never mentioned at sea. Sailors thought it was funeral. Fight to see so most never learned to swim. Most pirates didn't know how to swim. Earrings will pirates were golden. They really did. Because they were fashionable but also in the belief that they gave them better iside protected them from Trimdon. Pirates often wore feathers in their hats. For superstitious reasons they were thought to protect sailors from shipwrecks especially the feathers of the wren slaughtered on New Year's Day which held its power. For a year this belief led to the virtual extinction of Rennes on the Isle of Man. Flowers were discouraged on board because they were associated with funeral. Wreaths of Dead Man Bellow Pirate. Now here's one about Friday. Friday was the unlucky. Stay to set sail as it was the day Christ was crucified. In the day Eve tempted Adam. Grand a garden of Eden. British navy attempted to eliminate superstition by commissioning the HMS Friday which had its Keel laid on Friday is crew selected on a Friday and the captain's name was Jim Friday. It set sail on a Friday and was never seen again. It was also bad luck to luxur word after you had shoved off to see a fast. Swimming Porpoise was good luck to kill one. Dad Luck repairing flags on the quarter deck was sure. Bring bad luck. You never stepped on the ship with your left foot always with the ride. Seagulls were believed to carry the souls of drown men so it was bad. Luck to shoot and sailors never whistle. They believed that the wind could be summoned by whistling softly. After first sticking a knife in the mask whistling on the deck while the when was already blown was stocked to bring a gale women on. Boorda's ship were considered unlucky. Although a naked woman was thought to calm the see this is why many ships pirate and British ships and some Spanish had figureheads of bare breasted women on the bow follows a lot of movie. Trivia about pirates. The most famous song attributed to pirates was composed by young e allison in eighteen ninety one based on the song and Robert Louis Stevenson treasure island.

Talking to Kids About Race

"Thank you so much for joining us today Dr Palmer. Oh It's my pleasure. Yes I'm excited to have you so you are the author of a new book called. Daddy why am I brown and I know that this is a conversation you know I would say probably over the past year. We've seen lots of conversations about parents talking to their kids about race. And so I think that your book will be nice for kind of adds to their home library to really be able to have some of these conversations but I want to start with hearing. Is there such a thing as a child being too young to start talking about race? You know that that's a tricky thing with hope that you could shelter kids from oppressive nature of race and all that stuff but the reality is is that if your child is going to be out in the world you're going to go to preschool. They're going to walk with you to a store. They're going to be able to understand what's around them. Then they're going to encounter race. They're going to encounter their own race. You know there's a lot of research out there that shows that these encounters happen as early as three or four years old so acting that it's better to prepare tunes and help him get the united of what's going on prior to that. I encounter so that they could better navigated. Because the way you navigate that encounter experience with racism racism. All of that and be profoundly important away this. You're able to cope your life. We know like you're saying that like some of the research indicates at kids have some of these experiences as early as three are they typically negative experiences or is it more like kids realizing like all of our skin looks different. You know it very much depends. I don't know if there's a a more often case at this point but I think that the way that the racial identity models were built cross has a racial identity model. That's kind of the beginning of that. But before that even France non this idea of on a finding yourself as the other is what we talked about as encounter experienced. I don't think that finding yourself as other ever really feels good when you think the same as everyone else I think that that that's something. You have to contend with because that otherness At the very core of that otherness is ally right so not gonNa feel good to be told that you're something different when really our skin color and the differences that are visible. They're skinny they're not really important to who we are. You know intellectually spiritually are person. Are Senator Self our not about necessarily those external Trees and she typical when we are placed into context where racism important. It is this kind of thing that we will be treated differently. So I think that kids can kind of be ushered into this idea of simply for blackbeard's you can be ushered into blackness in a really positive way but you're still being ushered into context the whole question and there's no way to to change that without changing the oppression It's not there. Shelter your kid from that because they're gonNA be walking on the street and stuff happened so. I think that what we do as elders to children we prepare them as much as possible and give them the tools so he can navigate any of these experiences. Antionette is always struggled because I am a parent and so you know it. It does feel like a very fine balance between like helping them to just be proud of themselves as young black boys and also like one. Isa Shelter them but knowing that you really can't because they exist in the world and so how do you kind of assess like what is appropriate? Talk with them about about the realities of the world at a certain age. People like to talk about meeting people where they are and I think that that is the way to do it with children You'RE NOT GONNA you're not gonNA come to a kindergarten class and be like. Let me explain you the duality of identity in an to person hood in you know you're not gonna go into like you know critical in that way because they haven't learned the foundations to and understand it but she can't talk about. You know what happens when people say mean things to what happens when people talk about describe you what. What did you do when you describe it other people you know like when you're talking about someone in the Pre k? Age Group were kindergarten. Age will come out on a mental. Would colors me would appreciate letters mean. How do you print letters? How do you figure out the days of the week so I think that you bring it to their space and talk about some of the basic the most basic parts of it? You help them to understand you. Don't push some pass at you know you don't have to you. Don't have to come up with their opinion of what race means you don't have to have the fully indoctrinated into like the the joy of blackness. But she should have them understand that. Like for instance people will call you black. Your skin is not black. Your skin is brown and is various shades of Brown so though that's confusing for them to use the wrong color when you're being taught he's colors. Here's one of the reasons why you see what I'm saying there Yeah so really like you're talking about like really developmentally thinking about like what other kinds of things they're learning and how you can kinda couch it in in some of those same things. It doesn't have to really be about well. You know as adults. We're talking about our Russian in privileged in those things like kids. Don't have to get all of the scarier parts of it all early. Some of it is just like how do you just begin to talk about your hair in your color? And where you're from. I think that that's another piece of it. Is always like linking you talk about the race stuff but to link it to you know ethnicity in culture and help children understand that a different things and the mean different things. You should take different meaning and so you thought his. Take more of a proactive approach. As opposed to waiting for the first you know maybe negative racial experienced to happen. You don't wait for children to encounter bad things generally like you. Don't take your child out and let them play in the front yard without telling them how to deal with sidewalk in the street. The boundary of the grass and people coming by. He tells them you know. Don't talk to strangers lapasset sidewalk there. Don't run in this area. The Iraq you know you give them that early warning so that they have at least some sort of conception of being cautious hand and thinking about their surroundings so they can begin to understand again. I think that this is where show with 'cause you're right like I really enjoyed that analogy because that does help me think about it differently. I think where I struggle is like introducing like almost this paranoia that of course I experience right as apparent in like an adult in the world but like not necessarily introducing debts. Kids too young. I guess the question to ask. Is it really paranoia? So I grew up in a predominantly white and Asian area of San Diego and I was one of two black kids through black kids. Asthma time. Most of my life as a K. Through twelve kid and I encountered racism very early and some of it was not even direct. Like there wasn't necessarily someone drop an imbalance towards me. It might just be that wikileaks. Wanted to and you know there was no different except for the skin color and I didn't understand what was going on. You know I didn't always understand what was happening in those spaces in having an idea that hey you know this might be going on. They might be making the wrong kinds of judgments when they might not understand things correctly. Might help to get through some of those spaces again. It's not necessarily teaching kids the scariest parts of this. But it's about the same way you tell kids. Hey you know if your brother your sister issue that doesn't mean that you get back and here's the reasons why in here's how you deal with like the concept of you. Don't talk about the concept of forgiveness but you you do talk about you know. You can't stay mad. You know you have to do things to repair your relationship with your kids and between peers and things like that new. Find those ways in the language at the child can understand so that they can be to again start to develop unhealthy ways to deal with things that will affect them for us. Our lives

"Of course, from the Blackbeard studio deli meats cheeses, you don't wear only at ShopRite. Where do we begin tonight? We're watching we just watched Bryce slop is back as he hit that home run in Washington team. Listen, juicy if the nationals drilling if they say, look, we didn't really appreciate that. Matt flip were upset. We're gonna brush you should tremendously. They should. And it's easy because the guy pitching for Washington is out of all Sanchez who wasn't even a teammate of Bryce. So you don't even have that awkwardness though. I'm sure there are teammates there probably would like to drill one Bryce Harper. But we could start with the eighties from the aspect of yesterday. When I saw the lineup Aaron Boone put God was he Nikki Calloway. Mickey Calloway on his lineup yesterday, or what doesn't believe in come on. And normally I'd say it's April second. So you wanna keep Gary Sanchez fresh for a whole year, you're giving Greg bird a day off of some bizarre reason, the Yankees are short handed right now, obviously, why make yourself even more shorthanded when you're already short handed. So Gary Sanchez not being in the starting lineup. And even Gregg Berger can't believe I'm saying that about Greg bourbon even Greg bird not being in the starting lineup to me before this game. Even started didn't make a lot of sense. I mean think about it. You have labor Torres as your cleanup hitter. Mike Tuchman hitting night up Tyler Wade who never gets hits in the major leagues only in spring training is in this lineup Allston role. Mine is in this lineup who knows about Clint Frazier. This is already a lineup that's devoid of offense of weapons because of all the injuries this suffering. Why inflict more on yourself by not playing? You're better bats. Now. I don't understand. I mean, like I said, I think it's the Mickey Calloway school of managing. I mean is Gary Sanchez at home runs a consecutive days. I mean, can you at least h? I don't want him to catch catch an X amount of games in a row, and let them D H or something like that. Don't lineup. I mean, it doesn't make all the tool, which I guess he's older. You wanna sit him? I get it. I don't understand the too low part is flying. Yeah. The guy. You don't wanna play him every I get that. But not with Gary Sanchez, Greg bird. Played a day game today, but it's not your traditional game after game. The game starts at four o'clock in the afternoon. You played an earlier night game last night. It's also early in the season. And not that these are game seven of the World Series kind of games. We don't understand that. It's very very early in the season. All you gotta do is look at some of the better teams are supposedly better teams in the American League. Nobody's playing well outside of Tampa. The Astros are a mess. The Red Sox are awful. The Orioles are juggernaut by the way. So I know you're upset about four and one. I'm telling you right now fifty four to go. I'm telling you will win all fifty may not win sixty five games. But I bet you they went sixty. I also don't think the Mariners are gonna win ninety five SOX are gonna lose. No. But I didn't say you're gonna win nineteen sixty. It's early. It is early. But the Yankees over the last couple of days just haven't hit. It's funny. The other day when they won behind Mingo her mom's five innings we didn't get up and earned run in the bullpen. Lock it down. And we mentioned this yesterday issues one because they pitch they didn't score a lot of runs scored three runs on six hits. Or whatever it was. And yesterday was kind of the same thing. They just didn't score. Clint Frazier sacrifice fly in the second inning. They may Jordan Zimmermann look like nationally Jordan Zimmerman. They couldn't touch the Detroit bullpen, and so they wasted. What was a well. Pitch game by Masahiro Tanaka. We can get on Chapman even pitch. Well, understand that. But the Anki scored one run. Yeah. That's why they lost the game four runs on eleven hits. Or whatever it is over the last two games. And certainly not having the horses is a big part of it. But you're also just not hitting overall as a team. That's why they lost this game last night. The pitching has been pretty good. I mean, really overall like you said Tanaka pitches solid game last night. And overall, it's been pretty decent obviously Chapman gave it up. I understand that. But there's also wanna tie game. You always wonder what these clauses we saw the other night with with the is almost blown aids in the game. It's not a safe situation. And these things happen. Here's the cool Alaska about because I know there's a lotta Yankee fans that didn't like seeing Marian Rivera in tiger same thing that he didn't pitch as well entire games as compared to your normal safe situation. The DS situations completely different. If you're at home. And it's a tie game. And it's the ninth inning. What else? Silence. Just not using him. I get that. That's the thing is going to be safe situation. So I get it. Sometimes closer struggle in spots that aren't safe situations. But if you're gonna play that way, that means you've eliminated aroldis Chapman from pitching in this game and rollers Chapman made a flat out mistake. I mean, Dustin Peterson whose Dustin Peterson Aaron Boone doesn't even know. Right, right. Forgot his name during the post game gets a very fat ninety five mile an hour fastball right down the middle and miss it. And that was the difference in the game. But you leave yourself so little margin for error when you're not scoring runs. They put themselves in a situation where it's one one in the ninth inning. And you continue to need to be perfect. I don't know when they were ever going to score run. I mean, if Chapman doesn't give up those runs in the ninth inning. We could still be here right now. That offense wasn't showing any pulse night. Yeah. No. I understand. I like I said, I mean, I understand that. And Yankees pitcher pretty well. That's why you gotta have these guys in a lineup when you're hot. And I understand it's only the fifth game of the season. There's no need to panic at this point. No, no, no. I haven't played good teams. I get that. But it is only five games that season. It's not. And that's the thing. Everyone has to understand if a Yankee fan is complaining, rightfully so. I think about Gary Sanchez not being in the lineup that doesn't mean you're panicking that doesn't mean you think you should treat this game like game seven of the World Series. But you are allowed to criticize your team even when it's only the fourth game of the season or the fifth game of the season. You're still allowed to do that games matter. And right now, the Yankees are devoid of offense of talent. So because of that you would think maybe I should play. Gary Sanchez more often than I originally planned, and then to make matters worse. And again, it may not have made a difference. But it's the bottom of the ninth inning. It's three to one you're facing the former Yankee Shangri and the game is not over three to one game. It's not a torn you've got DJ LeMay who's been a bright spot leading off the inning. You have the immortal Mike pacman who knowns confusing with. And then you have Clint Frazier. You've got Greg bird on your bench. You have Gary Sanchez on your bench. You have tried to Lewinsky on your bench, and none of them got into this game and the excuse boon gave was well. We were. Saving them saving them for. What what are you say you need to get guys on base before you can use them getting guys on base? When you ask it might Tuchman. Take it to me. This is like we see this with Callaway we've seen it with with boon to me. This is just the way it is. He's mad. There's no seat of the pants managing anymore. You know, it's almost like these guys map out five. Okay. Here's my week. Okay. I'm going to map out. Okay. We're going to get this guy. This guy. I'm going to map out who's gonna play every you know, what I'm saying. There's no like, okay. Well, you know, what look we need this game today. We're playing Tigers. We can't lose games the teams like this. I am banged up. As it is. I gotta go with my hot hands right now. There is no when you're right. I got to give a guy credit, even though it backfired, and I don't think he's a great manager. But I want to be fair to your point. David Martinez is the manager of the nationals. And he's a good manager. While we don't know remember the urgency. He showed on Sunday gonna Doolittle as early. I like that it didn't it didn't work what he wanted to game. Anyway. But. Right. His his move itself didn't work because Doolittle gave up the lead. But I guess overall did work they the game. Right. Right. That was a manager who probably didn't map out a week earlier. You know, I'm gonna I'm gonna ask Sean Doolittle a five out safe. But I think the fact they lost the first two games of the series mattered. And I think he said, you know, what I want to win this game. I don't wanna mess around. And I think this is a small thing this isn't asking closer to get a five out saver four out save it simply playing a guy. That's all it is right or being aggressive with my pinch hitters posed a trusting Tuchman and Clint Frazier couldn't phrase rats. You don't have an issue with because I think right now with Clint you want to see him play. And you want to give them a chance my talk. But is the guy who really we had a double in this game. But given that bad than anything against Shane green. When you've got. Lewinsky on your bench. You know? I look I mean, I think that's that's a big part of of baseball today. There is just none of that. You're right. I mean, even with that. Why would you guys not not hitting the ninth inning? I couldn't agree with you more about this doesn't make sense to me. And what a compliment we're giving Greg bird that we're even putting him in at least, you know, what look bird hasn't been great. You know, he's been hurt his career. But at least, you know, what he is a really major league hit a ball. He he could hit the ball out of the ballpark. I'd rather have him up there and talk man, no question. Debatable. No doubt. There are positives. I mean, you mentioned the starting pitching the first turnaround outside of J hap has been really solid Masahiro. Tanaka was really good yesterday was out about a venos- been fantastic. And with relievers, you never know from year to year, and I think it could still happen without of, but you looked at his career and said, what is he going to be in twenty nineteen the contract the pressure wearing number zero. There's really no pressure. I don't see how I'm just kidding. But not a veto has looked awesome. His slider has looked on hit -able. He was great yesterday and DJ LeMay who has been a nice addition. He's one of the few guys who consistently getting on base for this team. And obviously he's gonna play every single day. So the Rockies that they added have been good addition so far for the Yankees, but they just haven't hit..

"All right. Well, when we talk about the NA, we've we've long known about its ability to help us solve crimes twenty two minutes after six this is in the morning, and it can do all sorts of other interesting things and one of the kind of neat things about it. That we is that it can help determine paternity, right? I mean, it can tell you all sorts of things about your family, including you may not know. So for the last few years, we've seen an explosion in these home genetic testing kits. And I thought this was kind of cool. I got this for my fiance last year for for Christmas, and she met and made contact with relatives she didn't even know about. And it was a great supplemental. Piece of information for her. Family free that she was putting together online really kind of neat. Not only. Does it tell you what your your Heritage's? But it helps you actually connect with people. So a friend of mine met a met his biological father for the first time through this website, another friend of mine met her or make contact with her biological father for the first time. So this all changed last year for me, my thinking about this completely changed when I saw they caught the Golden State killer. And they caught him two decades later because a relative of his. Submitted their DNA to one of these DNA testing websites. So I thought to myself well where well, wait a minute. I don't know about this. Is it right for me to condemn not only myself, but every existing relative I have and every future relative that I have to. Prosecution. By voluntarily giving them my DNA. And then all the callers call and say, well, look if you have a relative, that's a criminal. What's it to you? They shouldn't be it shouldn't be outgoing people, and that's a fair point as well. And so last week. I had the opportunity to read a fascinating fascinating article. I'm gonna link to it on my Facebook page. Facebook dot com slash Morano fan. Headline don't give your DNA to giant didn't genetic databases, and it makes the case better than I could ever hope to and it's just incredibly informative about why you should be reluctant about voluntarily handing over your DNA. The author of that piece is Jason kevlar. He is the editor in chief of motherboard and he joins us on the phone right now. Jason thanks so much for getting up early on a Sunday. Hey, thanks for having me. So Jason inter nutshell. Tell us why you think maybe it's not the wisest choice for people to hand over their DNA to one of these genetic databases. Right. Concerned with it is the fact that we don't really know what companies like twenty three and me, an ancestry dot com are going to deal with your genetic information. I'm twenty three and me just sign this huge deal with GSI Cade pharmaceutical giant or three hundred million dollars last year, and you can say that that data is going to be used new drugs. But ultimately, we don't know like the people who signed up for twenty three me three four or five years ago. You know that air was going to be sold to big pharma. And for me the thing that really crystallized. It was the golden particular like you mentioned indicate it's a great thing that serial today was caught. But today, you know, a few years from now could be petty criminal. We just don't know. Right. And so let's talk about the first thing that you mentioned, right. How they are. Using they're selling people's genetic profiles to these big pharmaceutical firms, right? So. People may think about okay. All right. Maybe this is going to help develop more custom made drugs. Why is that potentially a bad thing? Well, they say that the information is a non my or in aggregate, but when he painted from paying as personal a it can actually be my. It is what makes you. So it's hard to say what it actually happens that information. And I do think that there are possible benefits of this technology where you can have personalized medicine and new drugs and things like that. But if you think about what is the business model of the company, you ready for Christmas, you had twenty three and me and ancestry dot com, and these other databases practically giving away because they're making money off of the information at the end of the day. And so hard to say today, you know, GS paid. But who knows what's gonna be in a few weeks information is in the database? There's no way to get it out. I mean, it's your it's your DNA. It doesn't change. It's not like you can just change your password packed one day or you can't change your password. You can't change your DNA. It. You know, they delicate someone we don't agree way. Right. And it was very interesting Jason. And if people just tuning in we're talking with Jason kevlar. He's the editor in chief at motherboard. He's got this fascinating article in which he evaluates the pluses and minuses and based on his reporting, it seems like there are more minuses than pluses about voluntarily handing over your DNA to one of these one of these companies. There was a time Jason when people were reluctant about giving their social security number to anybody. And now people are giving away something so much more personal to perfect strangers people they've never met, and as you point out, they have no idea what's going to be used with this information. I mean, you nailed it. When you talked about some of the the risks in the criminal Justice system that you could actually potentially use someone's DNA to frame someone. One. That's not that far fetched is it. Oh, it's not actually has been, you know, an innocent person was used to he was basic green indicates, and I actually read an article years ago. The really scary. And quite the token it had nothing to do with a giant genetic database. A man was erected for apparently molesting her daughter based on DNA. And in this case, you didn't do that. But he was watching with us watching his quotes with her clothes, and they were able to find a on her unfair. So you know, your name had. I has been a marvellous tool for law enforcement and catching criminals, but there are still some day. But we don't know about how it works where it ends up and things like that. So I do think that it's just too early in the process, you know, twenty three million the grand scheme of things only came around four five six seven years ago. And we don't know where the state of the art is gonna be in a few years. Let alone a few decades. Right. So I want folks to listen to what Jason is saying here. Okay. So he points out this. These instance of the police. Wrongly identifying an innocent man as a suspect in this case based on his DNA. Another innocent man's DNA. Was recently used to frame him for murder that he never committed and one of the things I learned from your article Jason which I had no idea about is that apparently these consumer DNA test results are not full proof. You point out that they're inaccurate about forty percent of the time. Yeah. It's really a problem with people of color and people from countries who are not United States or western Europe, and that because the database we aren't large, you know. So you know, if you are a black person all the information is just not going to be an accurate. I it would be for, you know, a European or Anglo Saxon person. And that's because twenty three need w have enough information database. There is also a case where age tech company identified a human a dog, the a human DNA. Depending on the company be results can be quite ridiculous. So we may come back. That was the case with a small startup. Twenty three and me, but there are others of DNA testing. It's out there. And you really don't know how they're doing dining. And you don't know if they actually know what they're doing the other thing that I don't think has gotten nearly enough. Attention is we've seen what hackers can do in terms of accessing people's passwords their their personal data by hacking into store online retail stores or websites like Facebook, imagine, what hackers could do if they gained access to the incredible treasure trove of databases at twenty three and me ancestry. I mean ancestry and twenty three and me can say they're not going to share any information without your permission. But if they get hacked by one of these hackers, they'd be powerless to stop it. Right. Yeah. I was a kennel with the FBI a few years ago about that. And it's something that they are considering you know, what are the possible implications? If the company does get hacked if on the all the get out there, and you can imagine some of the cases had happened. A lot of this stuff is really black near types. Doug, very far future. Just token things where you could imagine. And it'd be clear none of the technology here yet were there were a not do anything really crazy. But. You know years down the line. You could imagine someone. Corning someone with with DNA or ultra or something like this, and yeah, I mean, I think it's a little too early to say what the implication of having your out there. Will be. But that's why the advice just don't do it right now because we really really don't know where the technology's going. It's Vance so much in the last years, and it's just gonna keep advancing. We mentioned the Golden Gate killer. And I recently saw a study that about one fourth of all the white people in the United States can be identified from one of be databases, regardless of whether they've giving their data to company or not, and the reason for that is that, you know. That happened with the Golden State killer. So many people have done it that their relatives can be used to identify different people because big built such intent profile point. Wow. That is I think pretty pretty frightening. Pretty alarming. Jason before I let you go. You alluded to the program black mirror. I have not seen it yet. But a lot of people have urged me to check it out and say, it's it's quite good. Is that a show that's worth checking out? Yeah. I love it very Toby. And it's very in parts. But I would say if you are at all worried about the way technology is changing society and the ways that it can go. This is the type of stuff that we cover at mother every day and Blackbeard sort of one step further and imagine. Wow, I will check. I will check us show out one of these days. Jason thank you for the time this morning. Thank you for being willing to get up early. Yeah..

"blackbeard" Discussed on 850 WFTL

"Francis Drake at the time orders to go to the Pacific Ocean and plunder those Spanish galleons full of gold and silver small wonder they plundered and at first the British colonies didn't mind Virginia New York, Rhode Island almost all the colonies with the exception of Maryland pretty much. We're welcoming of pirates it all came down to economics up until about seventeen hundred many pirates, certainly the Red Sea pirates as well as pirates came up from the Caribbean. With treasure were welcomed in the colonies because they benefited the colonists. Who were struggling on the edge of empire to make it in the new world pirates could have a favorable reputation the gentleman pirate as he came to be known was a guy named Steed bonnet who was a sugar plantation owner in Barbados and the mid seventeen teens when he decided to give up his twice and become a pirate. Everybody needs a hobby blotted had a short unsuccessful career, although he ran into a more famous pirate. He was in league with Blackbeard for a while. He got injured and Blackbeard took over his ship. And then he was given back the command of his ship. He decided at one point to go straight and become a privateer. But then he veered back into piracy along the American coast as for Dolan's favorite pirate. I don't really have a favorite because I find them all rather miserable creatures but even with the bar that low few sank to the level of Edward low. He was. Kickable? And I think he was quite likely, mentally, deranged. But he's fascinating to me because he was just so utterly sadistic. Well, nobody's perfect more in our next report tomorrow at this time be offbeat. I'm Jim Bohannon for Wednesday January nights.
