"Low racing. I love hearing her enthusiasm and the expression of her voice as gorgeous. And I mean, I immediately think of this as a very contemporary poem in so far as how the black body is treated in America. As I read this, I see her working through the complications of how she sees the survival of the black body. So this making spines of their mini lumps in order to protect their crowns and then there's this notion about ability and wealth with and people everywhere who can afford them. Import them. And that strikes me as a great metaphor for the transatlantic slave trade. It's like if leaves of grass is an image for American citizenry in Walt Whitman's song of myself, then the thistle might be Margaret Danner's kind of emblem for black. Absolutely. Identity. I mean, we've got this little are recorded reverence in Africa, their home, period. And we've got this intentional marking of homeland here. And this notion of reverence, gosh, it'd be great if blackness were afforded the same reference in America. And the poem ends sweetly because it says everyone is so busy avoiding the thorns that few get near enough to enjoy the down. And so she's persistent in saying there is beauty here. There is greatness here. If only you slow down to see it. Is as though the pedal of the road. Thanks so much. That was really fun. Thanks, chiku. It was.

"When Margaret Dana became familiar with the Baháʼí Faith, it was a tumultuous time, I was arrested many times as I would go downtown and sit in at lunch counters or stand in line to get in a theater. And it was immediately after that, period that I discovered the Baháʼí Faith comes from van gilmer grew up attending a baptist church in Greensboro, North Carolina. Everything was segregated in America as a black boy and a black young man, I only went into white world as we would call it, which would be the city. You go down times a moment on thirsty, and you would have to go to a place that had fountains that would have to be a place we could go in. So it was in this environment that four black freshmen went downtown and sat at the woolworth's lunch counter. I was a senior in high school and I knew two of the best borough. In January of 1963, van first learned about the Baháʼí religion when a neighbor asked if he would sing at a world religion day gathering. He was 19 years old. I had to think about whether I would join that group or not. Joining that group meant I leave a large black community that worships together. I now go to a home because mostly behind communities we're meeting at homes. White people's homes. Unbelievable. I hadn't even been allowed to go into white people's homes. I was afraid to even go into the white neighborhood and I discovered this faith which says all men are created equal. It's like everybody says, but here I could see it. I could not just hear about it. I could see different people, different levels of education, different colors, worshiping together. So writing a poem, like through the varied pattern lace, to me, feels like celebrating our differences and being together. Exalts us. Thanks so much to van gilmer for speaking with us. And to the Baháʼí house of worship choir. Now, back to my conversation with CM Burroughs. I do love this poem. It's beautiful, right? Very beautiful. It feels like it liturgical, like you could read it at a Baháʼí service, right? Absolutely. This is a hard question. And I don't know if it has an answer, but how does it feel to read this poem? Today, as a black poet in America after Charlottesville, with its language of exaltation and unity. It's hard to reconcile this poem and the lines divinity must win the race. It will not be halted with what's happening in two really black people today. And on one hand, I suppose one must believe this. If you can count in anything, it must be in your faith and in God, because nothing else is helping, right? And on the other hand, I admire myself in the tragedies and traumas that keep happening and I don't see a way out except for America to make some existential changes that actually matter to its people. And does that feel like we're at a place where religion again becomes part of the conversation or do you feel like religion Margaret Danner is behind faith like Leroy Jones conversion to becoming a myriad Baraka, like many other poets of the 1960s felt faith at the center of their literary practice. Right. Do you feel that that's happening now? And also for you as a writer. I mean, how is it happening for you now as someone who writes God letters and oh, chiku? What a question. Oh my gosh, okay. All right. I mean, you're talking to other poets about religion, right? Yeah. And how dare you bring that up? So in the time we're talking about and Margaret damage time, I think where else could one have gone, but to church. And where else could one go but to like minded people who could be considered and or are family? And so I understand her exalted, right? In this very safe communal space. And I can say that now, people might ask, well, where else? Can I find solace? But in my faith, in the faith that things will get better or the faith that I can carry this too. Now, my own engagement with the God letters has been so personal to the death of my sister that, I mean, it's a strange thing to think about building a personal faith or religion I should say. Because I really don't think about God to unattach from my sister. I think both bodies, body of religion, body of my sister, were quite intertwined at the time. I remember a time in high school and college when I couldn't stand to be near conversations about religion because I felt so betrayed. And I would get up and walk away if one was happening near me because it would make me angry. And now, of course, I'm perfectly happy to hear about the practices of one religion or another from a friend and what really what buoys them in times of great difficulty. Yeah, it feels to me like in the God letters you're writing letters to God, but you're also kind of writing letters to other black poets about religion. And it's like kind of forming your own church in a way or your own kind of religious study group, right? Is that a way that you see disorganized religion? I don't know. Shake my finger at you right now. But I feel that you're asking me these questions that make me think about things that I have not considered before. And so to think about this collection of epistolary poems and master suffering as a kind of faith building is interesting. I know that part of me resists it and another part wants to say, of course, that's.

"Because of its fine, the thistle has been misrepresenting called the vicious and although God made it to even the Bible saying it is malicious. Welcome to the poetry magazine podcast. I'm guest editor. Three count ready. This week, CM Burroughs and I dive into the little known world of Margaret Danner. Born in 1915, Danner was a contemporary of Gwendolyn Brooks and Langston Hughes. She knew them personally. But she never achieved the recognition she deserved in her lifetime. For Burroughs, archival research is a form of faith. I asked her if she'd take us through Danner's hair down letters. And share what it was like to newly discover a poet from her lineage as a black woman writing in America today. We'll hear one of CM's poems, God letter from her newest book, master's suffering. As well as two poems from Margaret Danner's own work. Danner wrote about many things the civil rights movement, African art, gender, class, and society. But the question of religious faith was an important threat throughout her life and work. In the early 1960s, Danner converted to Baháʼí. A relatively new world religion devoted to the unity of all faiths. Today, we have the pleasure of also hearing from the musical director at the Baháʼí temple. Just outside Chicago. Van gilmer. Here's boroughs and me. Talking about Margaret Danner, black faith, and race in America today. I came to Margaret Danner with complete ignorance. She is part of my lineage as a black female poet, right? But I'd never heard of her before. And I am interested in bringing to the fore, those poets, whose names have been a bit lost. I mean, that's so much like what we're trying to do for Margaret Danner. And it's exciting. I feel like we're at a time when black poets from the 20th century are entering into the canon more fully, you know, every intro poetry class teaches Gwendolyn Brooks or Langston Hughes and so on. But there's a lot that's kind of buried also when you kind of promote certain writers. Yeah, yeah, that's a good word for it buried. You know, buried by what people think is, is the canon now. But it's ever evolving. And it's high time with young black poets. It's like time for us to bring the folks behind us forward into social media and all its modern that's happening now contemporary that's allowing the work to be in front of more people. And it's exciting that it would be younger black poets doing that kind of like a history like that archeology, but it's also must feel like a responsibility and a thing that might take you away from your own writing so responsibility. I mean, so it is a kind of responsibility, but it's one where I feel the charge for it and not the labor of it. There's a way that I think about archive searching as a romantic thing to do as a writer, right? I keep my mind keeps going back to this word faith and so I have a certain kind of faith in the black writing and black canonical inclusion that causes me to persist in learning about authors who are not in the public eye. Well, we're going to be talking about faith today because faith is a large part of Danner's story. And your story, I mean, as a writer too, but before we get there, I'd love to hear what it was like for you to encounter this black woman poet. Writing in mid century died 50 years ago who you'd never heard of before and just do a deep dive into her papers, right? Before you even read the poetry, I guess, is that true? Yes. Actually, it's true. It's a funny way to get to know a poet, right? It's like you get to know them as a person first. And then as a writer or yes, because as I open the archive, the first thing I came into contact with were her letters her correspondences between herself and other poets. There were poets that I'd heard of before, so she was a great friend with Robert Hayden. She calls him bob in the letters. And so getting to know her was a process of making up her the landscape of her friendships as well. And that made her more intimate. When I was in the looking through those papers, I kept seeing these letters to bob. And I was like, who's bob, who's bob? Because it doesn't say Robert Hayden in the letter. And so you have to kind of map yourself onto who's Cal, who's bob, who's, you know, yeah, yeah. So at what point did you realize that bob was Robert Hayden, the celebrated black American poet whose poem those winters Sundays is one of the most clicked on poems in the poetry foundation website and yes, absolutely. Those winter Sundays is one of my favorite poems. As well. What did I know? What did I know of love was austere and lonely offices. It was later in the letters when I found out bob was Robert Hayden, and I was blown away by thinking, oh my gosh, this poet who I know about is actually friends with her and it makes the world smaller in a way to think about these friendships that were happening, right? Between black artists, Margaret walker is mentioned in one of these letters to Robert Hayden. And so there's a bit of worldbuilding that happens in those letters. Yeah, yeah, and you see the kind of how the sausage is made, too, of American poetry. She's asking him for Margaret Danner is asking Robert Hayden for favors again and again and the letters, right? Yeah. She needs jobs, there's one letter where she's asking him for advice and she doesn't end that letter betray what she needs advice for, but it's an urgent request. And I love how she kind of complains about her typewriter while she's typing the letters and.

"My answers timing And it's an easy answer for me and he separates from all of the other players for two reasons. He's successful scoring touchdowns much like kelsey in the red zone and out of the wrestling. And he's got kind of quarterback make all the throws and go through progressions to get to him and if you look at the secondary of any of these teams especially the ones that are going to advance into next weekend they are very very successful at the corners they all got corners that can play like shut down a passing game. They can disrupt wide receivers at the offensive line. Yeah and it's it's Leads to Talented quarterbacks looking for someone else to throw to. And that's where this kid has has paid evidence for rogers all year and he'll certainly pay dividends here. Andrews is an excellent choice to If they'd get past Tennessee but he still does not produce in scoring two touchdowns The tanya can look back what's going to happen When we see tampa going green bay respect a lot of points in that game. It's hard for me to imagine that The green bay tight end. As a score touchdown there and logan thomas. No you shouldn't be there too much red zone foolery and trickery to cook Is if you if you for a minute thoughts. That chicago was going to somehow win. That game Jimmy graham becomes interesting but those are just You know just just might as well go buy a lottery ticket because now you're just guessing By the way. I just checked f f scoring this year Robertson finished as the number five tight end As far as total points for tight ends this year and out of those top five He is third amongst Tight ends in the nfl playoffs.

Because i don't believe the saints will be upset walkie. Can you imagine that locker room. What welcome response. All the guys would have when he when he stretched in there is ready for business on On game day. That's that's gonna be that's gonna take those guys through the roof. You know you go back to week. Eight nine catches ninety six yards and game versus Versus the bears. Sixty seven yards rushing very clean game for kamara. He did not find the end zone in that game. I expect him to this weekend. So naturally of course expected to play. Expect me to very very well. A matter of fact there may be a push for a lot of players to practice. Virtually after we see. What does this week against the bears. The bears without monkey roquan smith. We do believe that he won't play You we've talked about next man up for ball all fall. One of my favorite gaz joe l. ea rooney whe western kentucky university will take the field and smith's absence and he'll be chasing alvin kamara. What a great way to get your first start in the nfl. He's he's brighter of south more in highschool and bowling green kentucky and He's a graduate of western kentucky and You know this. This bears defense is not Is not so bad. When they're in man defense they're terrible and they're in the zone and so if you have to man up and you're the one linebacker responsible for chasing chimera that's a long day But yeah let's hope he plays if he doesn't play in for what we have going on and great playoff challenge. You've taken a risk but your your risk would be rewarded to you again next week because everybody knows that kamara can give you two if not three weeks points in one game and say yeah playing this week.

You can't answer this question. Neither can anybody 'cause we've never seen the super wildcard weekend before Where we get back triple headers Divisional round i think is is really the criminal because you get You know essentially seven hours football and back to back days with the eight best teams in the league playing. You think super wildcard weekend is going to be better than divisional round next year or this year or is it too early to tell too early to tell. We've got some intriguing match-ups.

They talk about how offense how washington offense can't keep track with With tom brady but yet everyone knows that the defense can might move brady off his spot and we'll talk more about that later.

LSU faces unique challenges this season
"When you look at Lsu spots. I mean they've lost fifteen starters from lessees and Joe Borough first overall pick quarterback gone to March as their star wide out opted out he's gone the offensive and defensive coordinators are both gone having taken other jobs and just last week at ordure on said that most of the team had tested positive for covid and have apparently since recovered, not all herbal most of our players of it. So I think that hopefully, they don't catch it again and open enough a game. I just want to know when you watch Eddie order on on the sideline this season. Like what do you think you're gonna see what kind of Lsu experience are you going to get? It's going to be I think a rebuilding year that LSU'S GONNA be able to tolerate because one I. Don't think that they're going to backtrack entirely from a lot of the changes that made them. So successful last year Joe. quickfire chase has across the Middle Brits attack with the forty five baby gets to the far sideline twenty, fifty, ten high cut style taggers. College football is very in a lot of ways more scheme dependent. I think than even pro ball because everybody needs a relatively simple system that they can pick up pretty quickly and use interchangeable talent on. However this is my favorite thing when you go okay well, how many how much talent did they lose and I'm like, what did you see cloud Edwards the layer do for the chiefs he's reckon business town. Touchstone. Chance City what a night for the rookie clad layer upgrade. And you go. Oh, man where he was he was a Lsu and you go. Okay. Well, look the bengals almost one which is like a victory for any other team. And who was behind that? Well, Joe Borough as rookie turns out dude's pretty good for a time. Downfield Kat at the to by US. And he runs into the end zone for burroughs first NFL touchdown. You Go. Well that came from somewhere. Didn't it? Oh Yeah. It came from Lsu second be a step down. Yeah. It's absolutely going to be a step down. That is the best Lsu team that has ever played in Baton Rouge with their best quarterback and what I what I believe was their best running back and I don't think you're going to get anything close to that. However even if we come down a standard deviation, you still want me talking to nine or ten thirteen. You're just not going to get that kind of excelsior performance. You're just gonNA fall to like. acceptably excellent and probably lose to Alabama.
"burroughs" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The geographic reach of the M tha It's not the five Burroughs, is it. No, it is beyond some ways. Buses in New York City, five boroughs, Long Island Railroad goes out NASA What Suffolk County of Metro North covers Westchester and North as well as part of Connecticut. We've got a small operation that Jersey transit runs for us west of hunts. In a typical day, pre pandemic will carry well over eight million passengers. Pre fandom Ex subway ridership average weekday five million right now 1.2 million. That's up substantially from the depths of the pandemic, but a fraction of the numbers we would carry on all of those agencies in my anecdotal on this folks is real simple. I was thunderstruck. How empty New York City was this weekend like I've honestly never seen it. In my time at Bloomberg and pet for your living with this with the empty office buildings of Midtown and there's all these other stories as well. If you get that aid, what do you do with it? Or do you have to begin thinking about firing thousands of people? Well, here's what we're gonna do. I'm cautiously optimistic that we're going to get the funding because, frankly, it's in the interest of the nation so fun. The empty a toe help bolster New York City's regional economic recovery That's in the national interest. The pandemic is an international and national challenge and requires a national solution. Song cautiously optimistic that Washington is going to do the right thing, but without funding for the rest of the year. That's what we're talking about that get us through 2020 that pursuit the coin and revenues has been that precipitous. We will have to consider things like wage freezes like service productions like headcount production, the laying or deferring the capital plan with historic 51 a half $1,000,000,000 capital plan that was approved a year ago. We put that on pause. Of us watched the replay the movie from the seventies and eighties infested subways, imposters and service declines. Therefore, we've got some breaking news here, so I'm gonna have to let you go. But we'll monitor is carefully and, of course, the folks with the huge reach in New York we welcome Bloomberg, 11 30 Particularly listening to this morning. Mr Foy is chairman and C E o of the M T. A. There's a number of breaking stories right now. No surprise here in that Google We'll keep their employees home until summer that from Dow Jones and we're you know, we're seeing this in different shades. I would say day today where some people are doing part summer doing all but The way this headline reads it reads all employees home until summer. Far more importantly, and timely for Washington is once again a member of public service has the virus. You know Robert O'Brien, of course. Our national security advisor. Call him the gentleman that replaced Mr Bolton. That would be one way to link into this. Mr O'Brien announces that he has the Corona virus and no doubt that will be a quarantine. But Justus importantly, you wonder how that will fold into who has been with him. Over the last number of days. I want to set up the markets here is we go to John Farrow in the open and sold that Paul Sweeney will be with me on Bloomberg radio, believe Doug cast scheduled to be with us. Which would be more than timely. Fisher's up 13. They were up 17 earlier. 30 to 69. SPX Dow Jones 26 390 and the Vics has really been quite ascend the vics 26.36 really isn't done much to me. The massive story Is in the bond market. It's not as grim as it was an hour and 1/2 ago but nevertheless compress yields this morning with the 0.58 on the 10 year yield. I would note the inflation adjusted yield a real yield extraordinary where we've seen that negative zero. 0.92 on the rial Yield oil stone Nothing really not part of the story this morning and then gold 19 58th E.

Reverse-Engineering the Impact of the British Establishment on Muslims
"Welcome to the team podcast brought to you by the Muslim, vibe. I'm hosting possum. And this I'm Rushton in my introduction because the root. Team members of Muslim vibe team and other associated people in the office are not happy about the fact that I'm recording this for whatever reason. So I'M GONNA keep it brief. I'm joined this week by William Burroughs who is a London based research in sociology. He looks at how young Muslims in Europe and North America, navigate, race, class and gender barriers from a D., colonial and restorative perspective. That right I'm. Just reading off his website. William is a an individual who has. Countries the Muslim vitamin the posses made assume videos for us. I'm going to Lincoln description. We talk about them at all the beginning. We also talk in the podcast about white privilege and the current academic project that he's working on. which kind of looks at reverse engineering? What the British establishment has done to Muslims, and how people are able to, and have successfully on a fullback and space themselves. I'm quite a wide ranging discussion I'm hope you enjoy it. Without further ado, because of the rude people in the office to and not allowing me to speak too much on this. Sound policeman. Harris Michael Mercedes with William. William Thank. You thank you for for joining me on this podcast so I guess some people may be familiar with your face that watching this because we've done what you produced a series of of committing documentaries for us. Around some random topics. I'm trying to think back to how it all came together. So I think you got in touch with US maybe a couple of years ago. And and you had at the time I think we shed one of your videos which around? was like this. Robot version of the of the Muslim influence. Oh, yeah, that was Yeah, what working? I haven't seen that because I. Think it's hard to actually. They got that video struggle to find him for it last. What was that? So basically, it was an experiment in the sense that. You know if I can put things this way Assessor Gist, which is my job. My job is to understand. Why do people do certain things and? It's basically like being a psychologist before crowds for movements trends. But at the same time when I started my mic, my studies I as a Muslim academic. There was something that for me like a religious duty. 'cause you know for example if I talk about the topic. Is Between fifteen thousand and twenty thousand words, a chapter of my book or Article but not everyone has the time to re this and necessarily understand will jog on and stuff so I i. consider you know known as? That's minorities. Jala is not valid until it shed. And you know so. How my question for the DOT words. How do I make it? These topics complex topics accessible for most people, and then I got inspired by. Keynote these like age a-plus videos. And I thought yeah, let's try to do some videos. In a similar way, a very short format with like culture, popular references and stuff, but also did some fictions individual. You mentioned actually was one of these experiments. Where basically it's a it's a stop in fiction where I imagine. What if all these influences that we see on Instagram Youtube? There were actually robots designed by Google facebook a for Muslims to abide by the government's guidelines, so that was the NC. How people would respond to such narrative so this. Would you actually I play like a scientist and? A friend of plays like a robot actuaries ten still out for three minutes, and we use like google voice from Google, translate to for the speech and. It was. I felt like when video came out. It definitely started conversations I'm sure it ruffled a few feathers, but also got people thinking and people talking which I'm sure was your kind of Ame behind that in some sense, and then also and I'll probably try and put a link to all the different video that we discussed in this in the in the description, but does also A. Series. That we did on the most imbibed. Within that we, so we sat down. We kind of Map Tau different conversation topics. We wanted to discuss so things like politics white privilege I was actually another one and look at my note masculinity. An. What was that journey like? Because again I the the kind of brief I. Guess We gave to you is that we want? To have pieces on this one conversations to be had around this, but we don't want him to be kind of light. We WanNa go quite deep, and obviously with your kind of academic background as well. We want to really be able to get hawk. Get to the heart of these conversations. And and I think we kind of did that like that. I remember the the white privilege episode was yourself and Two or three other white Muslims that you had that interview. I'd that will combat I believe as well I they were kind of unpacking and exploring in discussing direction, relative privilege, and whatever else and. It's interesting because there was it was very feedback that one person was asking for example why there was only white people on the documentary on the on the mini documentary that we produced. And I guess what was that whole Jenny like like off of the different mini documentary that we wanNA marriage as well. What was your favorite to record in research and and I think you know although these topics are very important for me. Because all of these topics were more or less part of my journey, not only it's not only topics I research in the university this topics that are impacting on my personal life, the life of my friends, and so on and so on, and you know especially when it comes to things like a me, metoo movements who black lives matter. The problem I felt was that lots of men and lots of white Muslims you know when that people expressed that you have these like global movements, so people feel attacked and they take it personally. and. The thing is a some men and also white Muslim understand what comes from?
Players balk at MLB's pay cut proposal
"Missed it earlier. No negotiations today between the owners and players. Usa Today reporting the players and their agents meeting to in the Union meeting to discuss a counter proposal to send back to the owner by the way along those lines. And this was Gives you an idea of how some things are going within? Trevor Bauer has tweeted the following. Tonight this was three hours ago pitcher. Trevor Bauer hearing a lot lot capitalized. All three letters L. O. T. hearing a lot of rumors about a certain player agent meddling in MLB Affairs Major League Baseball Players Association. If true and at this point these are only rumors. I have one thing to say. Scott Boras Rep your clients however you want but keep your damn personal agenda out of union business of ood. He followed that tweet with did know. He had a twitter account. Now that I know and the included at burroughs corporation so Scott would see it very interesting To know all the behind the scenes of how this being I I think in general we know how it's being received when players are being asked to in many cases take a seventy five percent pay cut but how it is playing on one end of the pay scale versus the other end of the pay scale with the players making a million less basically getting that versus those when they hire in being asked to take dramatic pay cuts again for all the those who are bent out of shape and fed up. I I get that frustration to some extent. And we're GONNA do this early in the show tomorrow night but I also think people are are not factoring. This in the belief continues to be the season would start July the fourth. That was the proposal to begin with way back forever ago was the weekend of July. The fourth nothing that is taking place right now is blowing up their deadline. The thought is they still have up until June. The sixth. That's another ten days away. Now it's GonNa be ten painful days of of waiting and in hearing unnamed sources float stuff from each side but people act like they and I go back to the the victory for this and Oh my goodness just play. Nothing has changed from their original plan to play July the fourth so you can be frustrated that the deal's not done but nothing is changing the original plan. So maybe it's just the way I'm wired if if and then they say well. There's not going to be a season or well now. We're not GONNA have time to do this or that. That I could see like kicking and screaming and ranting and raving but to do it now just seems because you feel like being mad about something because nothing. They're doing is disrupting their original plan. Timeline that they set up to play baseball July Fourth. So until that changes okay. Let me know when you're done and we'll play baseball July. The fourth

"burroughs" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA
"Really sorry Joe for your loss the loss of your career before it even started manic I nailed that with that tweet nailed it in other words he's not freaking out and he's clowning you if you are and by the way nobody should be freaking out Patrick Mahomes is a nother alleged member of the mall the hearings malls tiny hands with yeah I don't know Mahomes is a member of that club he's in that Friday he seems to be doing okay he re tweeted burrows tweet with quote my small hands are doing all right so far I believe India end quote and that's exactly the thing mall owners allegedly had small hands but those so called small hands are still big enough to hold an MVP trophy and a Superbowl trophy in his first three years in the league except all the so called scientists well point to Brett Farr is evidence of what they're talking about the state look at the old Selangor mom Manhattan E. normas pause and look how awesome of where he was fine great I would point to the Selangor and remind everybody that this guy fumbled as much as anybody fact and as Burroughs quarterback guru Jordan Palmer said on the show yesterday the hand size measurement really is a bit of a joke the problem is is that we've seen some guys jerk off got nineteen Jan and like a hundred and twenty five million Bucks a couple approvals and Walker so the problem is is there's there's been guys that have small hands that are played well this guy's big into camp life so it's not a hundred percent foolproof thing it's kind of like heights for me like you I want to be six three six four sure what I take drew Brees first overall if I knew what was coming yes so you're gonna have to take it with a grain of salt what I try to do to dispel that is I've got a little thing where I measure guys grip strength because I kind of want to dispel that and it's too early for me to release what everybody's are but I've been measuring every quarterback I've been around grip strength and his grip strength is up there with the strongest so I don't know if that matters either but I just look at Joe and I go look because the first pick in the draft you know night in chance what do I wish there were ten and a half sure but I I just don't think it's enough to concern me outside of just some to talk about on a Monday right the joke it's comedy the last time this time last year people are also losing their minds over Kyler Murray's hands in the factory of the smallest set of any quarterback taken in the first round and again what's the concern about small hands fumbling gonna fumble the ball in the car the more he goes out and he has the lowest fumble rate of any rookie quarterback so I guess what I'm saying is you're a dope if you freak out about hand size if Cincinnati were decide to pass on Joe Berle because of his hand size that be their call but that would be one of the worst because ever especially since pearl finally made it clear this morning that contrary to all the speculation he would be very happy to be drafted by the Bengals and he'd be very happy to live and work in play there I'm not the not play.

How Does Venus Work?
"After the moon the Venus is the second brightest natural object in the night sky partially because this planet is covered by reflective clouds that make it is an optical telescopes can't penetrate eight with the Venetian surface hidden from view generations of fiction writers used to speculate wild about the mysterious terrain beneath those clouds for example Tarzan Creator Edgar Rice burroughs portrayed Venus as a world with lush forests in our boreal cities in a nineteen eighty-four pulp novel but then science intervened B eight at Venus's habitable pretty much imploded during the Cold War in Nineteen fifty-six Radio Telescope observations showed that the planet had surfaced temperatures in excess of six hundred and eight eighteen degrees Fahrenheit that's three hundred twenty six degrees Celsius and believe it or not those readings were kind of low we now know the average surface temperature on Nisa blistering eight hundred sixty four degrees Fahrenheit or four hundred sixty two Celsius it's the hottest planet in our solar system even though mercury is closer to the Sun on the face of Venus the atmospheric pressure is crushingly extreme and lead would melt into a puddle but as hellish as this place sounds actually has in common with Earth the two worlds are quite similar in size if you were to stuff venus inside our planet matric doll style it would occupy roughly eighty six percent end of earth total volume Venus has earth beaten in some key regards though earth displays a slight midsection bulge being wider around its equator than it is from one pole to the other conversely Venus is almost a perfect sphere what gives well when a massive celestial body like a star or planet spins quickly around its axis centrifugal force will give it a more dramatic bulge around its equator however Venus has an ultra slow rotation speed it takes the equivalent of two hundred and forty-three earth days for Venus to complete one full rotation around its axis and only two hundred twenty five earth days to finish a new lap around the Sun so in other words a day on Venus lasts longer than Vanesian year does and get this from our self centered perspective Venus spins backward word most of the planets in the solar system rotate from west to east Uranus and Venus Buck that trend on those two worlds the sun appears to rise in the West and set in the East nobody knows how that came to pass. Astronomers think Venus us to move in a counterclockwise direction like Earth but at some point it's been I have reversed alternatively perhaps the sun's Gravitational influence or a collision with a large object caused the entire planet to flip upside down in December of nineteen sixty two Venus became the first planet to get a fly by visit from a manmade spacecraft exploiting brief window of opportunity NASA's Mariner two probes studied this world up close from distances as near as twenty one thousand miles that's about thirty four thousand kilometers onboard instruments taught us a great deal mariner two firms that Venus does not have an earth like magnetic field and it recorded surface temperatures within the expected range a young Carl Sagan helped design the mariner to probe yes successfully lobbied to have the space craft fitted with a camera because close up pictures of Venus might quote answer questions that we were too dumb to even pose by the time Mariner to launched scientists already knew that there were high levels of carbon dioxide in the vision atmosphere and that composition should give us pause carbon dockside makes up a whopping ninety six percent of Venus's atmosphere scientists attribute this to a runaway greenhouse effect theoretically the planet used to have a more temperate climate that could have remained stable for billions of years back then oceans of liquid water may have covered its surface though we don't know for sure things changed as are growing son became hotter any oceans would have evaporated during this time astronomers think much of the carbon dioxide invasion rocks leached out and traveled guy word while the atmosphere changed it got better at trapping heat creating a vicious cycle that worsens the problem inevitably temperatures spiked and stayed since our own planet has a major greenhouse gas problem Venus could offer us important insights regarding climate change but sending probes to explore it has always presented major challenges on Venus the surface gravity is comparable to what you and I experience on earth what's not comparable is that atmospheric Asher which is ninety two times greater on the face of Venus than it is here faced with extreme temperatures and high pressure it's no wonder that manmade objects don't last long long in the planet's environment when the Soviet venire thirteen probe landed on Venus in Nineteen eighty-two it stayed intact for record setting one hundred and twenty seven minutes before it was destroyed mind you this wasn't the USSR's first Rodeo previous Venero spacecraft's successfully visited the planet's atmosphere and touched down on its outer crest brief though their visits were these probes captured the first ever photographs of the Venetian surface Nasr's Magellan spacecraft provided further insights has it mapped ninety eight percent of the planet's face all in all Venus boasts more than sixteen thousand volcanoes and volcanic features but we don't know of any these are still active highland plateaus deep canyons and meteorite impact craters have also been discovered there although Venus's about four point six billion years old crest is thought to be much younger with an estimated age of just three hundred to six hundred million years Venus lacks tectonic plates as we know them on earth nonetheless Sunday August think that upwelling magma occasionally recycle sections of the crust long before it was an object scientific study or of Edgar Rice burroughs. goals Venus mesmerized our ancestors bright and beautiful the cloud adorned planet derives its name from the Roman Goddess of love into mathematicians mapped it's progress across the sky and Galileo took detailed notes about its moon like phases somehow knowing that Venus is a stifling hot house doesn't diminish its allure with every new discovery inspires curiosity aw
Bra Fitting with Kimmay Caldwell

be superficial and care about material objects so you buy things and then they don't serve you anymore and you don't want to get rid of them because of guilt I don't know what but I had a woman come

for a long time that was I remember wearing that when I went on a date with my house then or whatever and I'm like what the single souvenir terrible and speaking of like husbands and partners and whatever I sort of think of people who hold onto bad ause as like a bad boyfriend so it's like you know he was he used to be real cute and super supportive yeah and now like we're just not a good fit anymore and he's a little worn out and I'm not really supportive anymore and I lost you anymore I have yet he and you're not serving you're not worth it for me anymore and I feel about bras feel about

"burroughs" Discussed on Overdue
"Reading it. Are there reasons why are there things to find in there aside from like a critique of it that are still worth finding now or like. What's your what's the one ended up being your read on the on the series. I guess sure i found it easy to read and like it moved at a good clip. It is a pulp adventure story so like right like that. Yeah that's part of the thing that part of it does work like it doesn't linger linger on stuff. There's some like weird comic duo nonsense with the professor and his buddy that like doesn't quite read you can tell that it's supposed to be like a funny yuck yuck moment and whatever but the basic like action of fighting with apes and stuff is pretty cool and works the jane stuff is mostly gross because you have no access to who she is as a person other than her like falling head over over heels for this sculpted god would man <hes> instantly. There's like a little nod to her. Precarious social position through the forced marriage marriage stuff <hes>. Let's largely underdeveloped because burroughs didn't seem to care <hes> and there are like decent turns of phrase as when it's not about stuff that is very dated <hes> there's a section that i will find <hes> that is about 'bout it's about like trees falling in the jungle and a tree falls in the jungle tarzan. Okay okay okay. Okay good good okay and this is just the like every once in a while. You'll get a cool turn of phrase when tarzan is learning about the mystery of clothes and there's a rain storm <hes> and some trees get knocked over <hes> now and again some ancient patriarch of the woods rent by a flashing bolt would crash a thousand pieces among the surrounding trees carrying down numberless branches and many smaller neighbors to add to the tangled confusion of the tropical jungle. <hes> i liked ancient patriarch in that among the jungle in like it personifies the woods in a way that puts it in in place with the other animals we meet and so there's like a sensibility of place that really works <hes> every once in a while again like you'll get a cool turn in a phrase but then sometimes that is deployed in ways that is like okay. That's some racist early twentieth century nonsense so yeah. That's the book you i. I think you read it as an academic exercise if you want to get in there i don't think a two thousand nineteen reader can read it and just i accept it for for like what it's trying to do. You probably find somebody who could do that but yeah take. Take your meaning yeah. That's my meaning <hes> <hes> so if you have read tarzan or read the other like ant man books or whatever <hes> with tarzan then you can tell us all about them. I want to hear about them. Send us an email. Overdue pottage dot com hit us up online twitter dot com slash overdue potter facebook.com pod. Sorry don't have names to read of folks folks because we're recording these in the past but i'll be man those social feeds and interacting with you. Regardless andrew folks want.

"Are, you know that mushy feeling you get when a dog looks at you with the sad or confused face? What does that happen? Why do they do that NPR's, Vanessa Romo reports a group of scientists say they have figured it out? We all know the look, and it turns out there, actually is something to what we call puppy is the big round is the eyebrows raised up in what looks like a why is everybody always picking on me kind of stare, an inside we get that feeling and become total pushovers. Well, according to Ambrose the lead anatomist on a study about the phenomenon that was just published in the journal proceedings of the national academies of sciences. The sad expression on our canine, besties is the result of tens of thousands of years of evolution and something called a leader muscle. It seems like the an. Ancestors, of domestic dogs or quickly, domesticated by humans, and as part of that process, human, or selecting for this, I'm movement, which is produced by this leave muscle, essentially, those tender looks are mirrors of our own facial expressions, specifically to help dogs better communicate with humans and get what they want. Things like food and a warm place to live. It's also almost entirely absent from wolves the ancestors of dogs burrow, says she and her colleagues don't have concrete proof just yet. But earlier studies they've done suggests that this relatively small inner eyebrow movement in pooches, that makes their is look larger and more baby like evokes, a protective instinct, and people just anecdotally when my dog does that I think, oh, my gosh. She worried she fat. She needs me for something. And so. We, we pay attention to them. So I it seems to trigger some kind of caregiving response in most human, and that desire to peer into one another's eyes is apparently mutually beneficial. Researchers found that dogs like humans experience a surge in oxytocin levels what's called the love hormone as for. What's next Burroughs says while future? Studies may seem like their dog focused, they're really about understanding ourselves because we're just weird BC's that decided to bring other species to live with our inner house.

Get his feet wit get them through training camp. And then see what happens. That'd be huge. Okay. Thank you very much a Jordan Burroughs. Now, there is a mea culpa from me. So I screwed up. I think in Australia. They change the clocks in Australia. What is going on? For sunday. April was at the first Sunday April was that two Sundays ago. God when I looked up the time. So this is the thing as of told you guys before I always feel very guilty. When I asked the Australian fighters or New Zealand fighters to come on when they're home. Of course is he was in Atlanta when we spoke to him, but when they're actually home because of the drastic time difference between here and. And Australia here in New Zealand, and they're always very kind. They're always very gracious with their time. Whether it's rubber Whitaker. Mark hunt outspoken off ski is right a son. Yeah. All these people. Always so gracious with their time. The math gets a little confusing for me, and on this particular case, I screwed up the math. And because we changed our clocks. They changed their clocks. I screwed up. The math and I'm an hour off. So it's currently six oh two or three now. Six three clutches changed. Right. As those tiny six three in Sydney. And I told. Robert whitaker. Seventy AM one hour off. And that means there's a very good chance that sleepy right now. And that means that I feel horrible and that this is going to bother me for the next week. And so what I've asked is if we can reach out, but I feel horrible though, we're reaching out. But but he said his team tells me that he wakes up early because he has kids could we could we vamp for for ten minutes. This is gonna kill me inside a piece of me will die if we don't get this. But I also understand because it's technically my mistake. If we can all just put our positive thoughts into some way, somehow rubber wood Kerr has to wake up get a glass of water. Let the dog out. I don't know brush his teeth get trysts get ready, even even by the way. Even if it's not a Skype or face. I just a phone call just just a five minute condo just thought on Mr. outta Sonya. And the magnitude of that fight, I feel horrible. I mean, I the whole thing happened earlier with Khalil now this God. No, you got him. Oh my God. Corporate just told me on him. I feel so bad. I wanna crawl to a ball right now. I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I'm very sensitive. I I wear my emotions on my sleeve, and I get very sensitive. But I can't believe it.

"burroughs" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show
"And freestyle exhibition wrestling match, this is exciting stuff. And now we are being joined by wrestling royalty Jordan Burroughs, aka all I see is gold. How are you my friend? I'm doing well. Thanks for having me on your show. I've been a big fan for a long time. Appreciate it. Oh, thank you so much. That means a lot. This is great. This is a real honor for us. Thank you for doing it. I know you're very busy. So I really appreciate the time. So let's let's start with how this came about. Because when I broke the news last week the wrestling community, everyone even casual wrestling fans like whoa, Jordan. Everyone knows Jordan Burroughs. If you aren't a wrestling person, everyone knows who you are. And of course, everyone in everybody knows Ben how did this match come about? Well, Ben preceded me in my wrestling career. He was an Olympian two thousand eight at the same way class at I compete at now. And I was the Olympia in that followed him in twenty twelve of London. And so I think that this has been something that's been imminent. Everyone is wanted to happen for such a long period of time. But when he made the transition in may a lot of people that he had a lot of wrestling left within and he's dabbled with the sport a little bit in the past. And he's really cool things to enhancing grow the reputation that wrestlers have in the UFC in made in general. And so I think once a match was on the table like, okay? Let's create a awesome matchup that people can get behind get excited about who. Can this guy? Be individual can really generate a move the needle and create buzz that we need in the wrestling community. Ben was that guy. He's always willing to elevate is brand in put something on the line. So it's a it's cool to see. I'm glad that he accepted the challenge in die. It's going to be a great match have you ever? Competed against them in any way, shape or form. No ban is a few years older than me. So when I was a freshman in college, Ben was a senior in college. Right. So he was the man when I was coming up. I was a young buck. I wasn't at this elite level and status that I'm at this point in time. So I watched him, and I ll is he was an icon in our sport. And so then when I started to come into my own established my own identity. I'm like man, I think I'm I could beat this guy in this guy. So this is the first time that will ever get exchange to compete we've rolled around a little bit. But this is the first time that legitimate official matchup with referees fans and excitement and that there's something on the line. So it'll be cool. Okay. But you you have trained together. Right. Yeah. We rolled around who gets the better of who. I'm gonna wait till may six. I don't want to. I don't want to let the cat out of the bag too soon. Okay. It's not fair. I I get a lot of respect for Ben. I think he's a I wonder how prepared like I wonder what he's doing right now. 'cause he's ingrained so tightly into the UFC culture. And I know he has a fight coming up. But I wonder how he's preparing for this because it presents a unique match. My impression is he's taking his very seriously. He's training for this. Like, it's a it's a fight like his his current career fighting. Are you doing that? Because I know you have world championships coming up as well. Yeah. Well, I'm always training hard. I'm always prepared. I'm always ready for any opponents on preparing for the very best wrestlers in the world. So that's why going into this match with Ben van is in a great wrestler. But I'm preparing for the most elite guys in the world Russia as John Iran. And so this is I don't want to call it a novelty or any showmanship. But when I go out there to compete, I compete to win in this is different Ben reach out to me last night. And you know, if you follow his career, he likes to ruffle feathers..

Explainer 151: Ireland and Brexit
"Maximum traded among Irish nationalists since the middle of the nineteenth century holds that England's crisis is islands opportunity. As Brexit looms. This saying may have to be updated along with Britain's long treasured reputation for sensible, governance and commonsense compromise Brexit substantially a tantrum by non London England as opposed to the United kingdoms of a constituent nations looks not so much like Ireland's opportunity as also islands crisis. Indeed, one of the few redeeming ironies of the entire Brexit. Vasko has been these spectacle of Britain's quest for self determination. At least as Brexit is preferred to see it being forward by Ireland the border between the Republic of island northern island, therefore, the border to be between the EU and the non EU is still the biggest obstacle. Brexit has to overcome. No matter. What happens what kind of a future relationship that we have that we never returned to board of the path trouble along the border between Northern Ireland Irish Republic this box off. So this vitally important bucks. Faxed the backstory backstop. Stop. Why do we need the Batstone the wider effect of Brexit upon the Republika violent depends to a large extent on what kind of Brexit occurs. And as we go to where roughly fifty days until the UK your to leave the EU, nobody news and the kind of Brexit that occurs on March twenty ninth four whenever is. Lonzo down to whether some agreement between the UK and the EU can be reached on precisely how the border between the UK and Ireland will operate after Brexit as things stand. The UK government is suggesting alternative arrangements to the so-called backstop, which is at least in keeping with the entire Brexit ethos of being long on airy reassurance and short on practical details. Shoot the Irish border issued prove intractable the likeliest consequence is in no deal Brexit, while this would likely be bad news for the UK, it might at least be argued that Britain would be lying in the rickety bed that it made for itself having voted for Brexit in the first place. Island. However did not vote for it. Indeed. Recent polls put Irish support for you membership at north of eighty five percent, but this will not prevent island collecting shrapnel from the UK's self-inflicted wound the IMF predicts a four percent reduction in Ireland's economic output, and the loss of perhaps fifty thousand jobs the economic and social research institute in Irish think tank estimates the average annual cost per household at fourteen hundred euros due to price rises around. Eighty percent of Ireland's exports go to or through the UK forty percent of Ireland's food imports and fifty five percent of its fuel imports travel in the opposite direction and fifty old days out. Nobody knows how this will work. Even a relatively soft Brexit in which the UK leaves the EU under the terms of the deal agreed by Cape Prime Minister Theresa may with the EU though, not as yet with the UK's. Parliament is bad news for Ireland Irish companies will still need to reorganize this supply chains and adjust their administration at the very least it will be an immense and expensive hassle. But it is possible not that this was ever what indifferent and ignorant Brexit as intended that Brexit might offer island some benefits at least thirty companies have relocated at least some of their operations from the UK to Ireland, including hilariously Somerset capital, the investment management firm. Partly owned by pro Brexit cheerleader and conservative mpg Camry smoke. More may will follow. Another unintended consequence of Brexit has been and will continue to be an abrupt expansion of the Irish nation. Since the referendum in June two thousand sixteen tens of thousands of British citizens anxious to maintain their rights as EU citizens have brandished parental or grand parental birth certificates at the nearest Irish embassy. London's alone has issued more than one hundred seventy six thousand Irish passports since the vote I think one of the biggest challenges facing us city in my lifetime as Brexit. How we make sure that even though we've been even e- you.
