"That blast from a Ram's horn signals the first day of the Jewish New Year. Yet another marker of this high holy day is the symbolic practice of tush licked. I'm Jim Metzner, and this is the pulse of the planet every year, Nashville Rabbi Ken Cantor leads his congregation to a local river toe observe tush. The tradition of Tash lift is 1/14 century tradition that we should cast our sins away into the deep, But the tradition is very much a physical manifestation of throwing away the sins that you have committed. So that between Russia and keep poor you can in a way, be purified of those sins. Robot, Cantor says Thie Act may be simple but as a ritual for Russia, Shona the New Year It's very powerful for most of the holiday services, our congregants sit and listen. They saying they read they pray. And while it is in a small way active, because it's something you do It isn't a large way passive. You sit. You listen to the rabbi, You listen to the music. Cashless is something we can all do. It doesn't take any great training. All it takes is the recognition that by holding something in your hand that represents the failings we all know we have done in the past year. And tossing them away that.
Fresh update on "cantor" discussed on John Reid
"Appreciate it. It is 705 here on this Monday morning. I'm John Read News Radio W. R Va. Watching President Trump walk out on the 60 minutes interview. From last night. We knew that was gonna happen, and he released the full interview. Um, I mean, did the 60 minutes correspondent seemed remarkably unprepared in the interaction she was having within the contentious over. You know, if you're going to challenge somebody In an interview setting it should beam or than just a generic slap. You know, there are people who come on the radio who I know we're going to make certain assertions. And if I wanna get into a tussle with him than I probably should spend about 10 or 15 minutes and get some factual data. To hammer them and and say, Well, what you're saying is this, But I've got data that says this, and then you get them to respond to it. Maybe they've got a response. Maybe they don't a lot of politicians. Agent Don't have Ah, response to it. So, um, I encourage you to take a look at the The raw footage from the White House and then compare it to what you see on 60 minutes. That's kind of insightful because this is the way a lot of these interviews go. I could tell you some stories if we ever see me out one night. And you wanna hear some crazy stories over a drink about interacting with national media? It's ah, it'll blow your mind. But anyway, we're glad you're with us here on this Monday morning, a little over a week away from Election Day. And I know our tensions rising. Certainly, the the speculation about what will happen next Tuesday is rising. Norman Leahy is the Virginia columnist for The Washington Post, and he joins us every Monday. And so you've got the polling data, which I just don't know if I believe this, Norman that Donald Trump is just getting completely trounced even worse than four years ago in Virginia. Just not sure that I buy that. Well, you can believe what you want, The data says what it says in a bowl, and I remember distinctly it was eight years ago. Republicans going through the elaborate Hocus pocus of unscrewing poles to show somehow Mitt Romney was going to win pickle in Virginia, and it was just sad, so that's a little want to go in. I don't want to go into those cold attacks again. But we have no data from the post Ah, George Mason. Where's the chapel that shows the trailing Joe Biden 52% to 41%. There's a 4% margin of error. And what you were referring to. Is that Excuse me? Coffee's going down the wrong way, John. I don't know what that was all right. Yeah. Ago, Hillary Clinton did win Virginia. But she didn't clear 50%, and that's butter bargain was roughly 200,000 votes. Largely, Ah, you could pull out 100,000 or more of those from Fairfax County alone. But broadly speaking, her boats came from the urban areas. I suspect that the same way this time what's different in the polling This time around versus four years ago is the president's advantages among certain groups. White men, even in the more rural areas is coming in lower according to this poll than it did four years ago. That will affect an overall state larger plus four years ago if we remember There were Mawr and more credible third party candidates running on the ballot. They did, obviously really Gary Johnson, for example, Running on the libertarian line got 3% vote in Virginia four years ago. I Strongly suspect that is not going to happen This time. It was three organs, son. We've been invited Joe Jorgensen, the libertarian candidate on this program, I thought okay, well would be interesting to talk to her. And I don't think we ever got a response back, which I thought was weird. I would I would think she'd want to talk to two people on board. And there are those who hate. Both candidates paid both parties who would very easily vote for a Libertarian candidate. Yeah, and some of us were just built that way so but also is what the sharp I think did show and I think it's more interesting to watch from our perspective is because the presidential race will be decided elsewhere. Let's get that out of the way it will be decided in other states, and I think in some ways we can feel mercifully absent from that flow because We would not be able to watch our television or or listen to the radio or anything without being assaulted by campaign at this. That or the other group or campaign anyway, it's the congressional races. And there's the open question of how much of a shadow the presidential races Cast over competitive congressional races in are in the seventh district. Where where we live in the second district down on the Tidewater in the neighboring fifth District, the presidential race there will cast some sort of shadow. How Bunches not sure that Sharples seems to indicate Generically that people would prefer the Democratic candidate, but it's not overwhelming. It's just at 50%. And it's less. It's tighter. It's actually closer to within the margin of error in those three competitive district, and I think that makes sense. If you look at how those districts The results from just two years ago. I think Abigail Spam Burger, for example, one by what was right around 7000 boats, maybe a little bit less. The second district race with Maybe a 2% point race. This district was a different animal, but it's an open seat race this time around, So I think those the ones you and I and others will be paying far more attention to locally in the presidential race. Well, that's certainly true. I was with Nick Fracas yesterday and Daniel Gate and Leon Benjamin yesterday to get out the vote rally. Nick Fracas is coming on at nine o'clock. I think I think we're going to talk to Abigail Spam Burger tomorrow. At least we've invited her to have the half hour. Tomorrow. Do you think there's anything that that can Change the dynamic here in the last week. I mean, generally, there's no October. Surprise late October surprise in a congressional race. Well, I think there is one that's been boiling under the surface slowly, and that's the stuff that I've been reading about the turnout figures. People who have already voted and the question I keep asking how much of the money that is being spent by the various congressional campaign on ads, for example, and only get out both. Event that you were at how much of that is actually going to change things, considering the numbers of people that have already bought a nationwide It's several millions of people tens of millions who have already cast their ballots in Virginia, and I think I think we crested more than one million ballots already cast. So you know that those people whose minds are not going to be changed their their their papers are already is done. Yeah, it's done. So who's left? And are they persuadable? And that's the real challenge. These campaigns space If you look at the seventh district in particular Spanned burgers. Margin of victory came out of two places in Rajkot County and Chesterfield County. And one might think the same sort of map will evolve again. But that means Republicans needed chip away at her advantages in Chesterfield County. In particular, I think in Rajkot County is much more difficult, but on and turn out the maximum number of people they can In the rural area. I believe And you can confirm this with practices that is. Internal Polling showed that the race is talk. That feels Probably about right. But I take every internal poll with a heaping grain of salt, because ah, I gotta say two words Eric Cantor, and that cures the That's it will inside political baseball for everybody. Even Colonel don't tell you in a way those people those people who were still bitter about Eric Cantor, and you know the day Brett that the internal Conflict within the Republican Party, which I think you know, did do some damage to turn out a couple of years in the wilderness will change some attitudes. And I think For the first time in a long time, those Republicans have unified to say, Hey, we got to get the seat back. I think that I don't think I'm reading that wrong. But is that enough to overcome those who have been turned off? By the the the the situation in Washington and see Ah congressional vote is kind of Ah, surrogate vote against or for the president. I don't I just don't know. Well, and that's what that is The great unknown, but fortunately our our our anxieties will be relieved very soon. Something that balance all get counted in time Hitting. That's a big if I'm afraid, Norman Norman, I'm always happy to talk to you. Maybe we'll talk to you again..

Enes Kanter: Enemy of the State
"Jeremy SCHAAP WE'RE GONNA talk to and his canter himself later in this episode. But I I wanted to talk to you specifically because you did cover kanter story really in depth for sixty last year, and by now I suppose a lot of American Mba fans are vaguely aware that cantor is deep into this long-running feud with the government of Turkey, his native country. But most fans also probably couldn't explain what that viewed is actually about. So let's start off broadly because protests of all kinds have become kind of relatively commonplace in the NBA. What about kanter situation here mixed the so unique. Well Here. We have well established NBA player. Who is one of the most famous athletes his country's ever produced? Who cannot go back to his native country because he is someone who has every reason to believe if he set foot on Turkish soil now? You'll be arrested. Or that? Physical harm would come to him. And his canter made a decision a long time ago. that he would be a vocal outspoken in highly visible opponents of the Turkish government would sees him as nothing less than its enemy. And so what are the roots of this conflict between cantor and his home country? It's very simple and also very complicated. It's simple in the sense that cantor is persona non grata because he is a supporter. Of a man named Fatullah Doolan. Who is Muslim cleric whose lived in the United States last twenty, one years, and at one time was very close ally of president of Turkey but there has been a falling out between the two men and the respective movements. Over the course of the last decade aired one has been ruling in an increasingly authoritarian way. Silencing his critics, intimidating critics locking up opponents of his government's he's believed that Fatullah NHS movement has had too much power and he believes that ghoulish followers had too much influence particularly in the judiciary civil service in the police and that they have been working to undermine him grueling and air to honor now sworn enemies nemeses of each other. In an his canter as a supporter of Fatullah doolan vocal one at that. is considered by many intricacy as kind of traitor. How does cantor even get involved in this in the first place like you just described? An extreme religious political situation how does he end up taking side in this? Well, he's someone who grew up in fact as part of Fatullah Goulding's movement. The Movement had established schools by most counts, very good schools, not just in Turkey, but around the world and his cancer is someone who was educated in the schools someone who was associated with the movement as tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of Turks have been over the last several decades. Now, as an adult kanter has continued to follow the teachings of Fatullah, Golan, who has promoted a moderate form of Islam in NS is certainly one of if not his most prominent supporter. So Jeremy described a dispute between two men who knew each other well, the president of Turkey Air Lan and this cleric Fatullah Golan now struggling for control of the country. And the date July Fifteenth Two thousand sixteen is a really pivotal one in this story. So what happened on that day roughly four years ago now? The details are still now for years later. Unclear in some respects. But what we can say is that there was an attempt to seize power in Turkey. By some elements of the military, we are coming on the air with breaking news and apparent military coup. Now, unfolding in Turkey Turkish state television has been seized by the military martial law imposed across the country. After a few hours, the coup was beaten back several hundred people died. And prison air to one immediately laid the blame at the feet of Fatullah Golan and his supporters.

"Marathoning began forty five years ago when a man showed up to a one hundred mile horse race without a horse. An ultra marathon is defined as anything longer than twenty, six point, two miles, and it's true tens of thousands of people every year run fifty, hundred, thousand miles over rough terrain because of that man and his nonexistent horse but the story of ultra marathoning actually begins with another man named Wendell, Robie and another horse Wendell's a a little die the just he's strong wiry anywheres cowboy boots while he doesn't anymore he died in eighty four. That's Gordon. Ainsley. Most people call him Gordon. He was a friend of Wendell's back in the day. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, four, window roby was camping with the Sacramento. Horsemen's Association. At Robinson flat thirty miles west of Lake Tahoe and while sitting around the Campfire on the last night of the trip when the was bragging about what a great horse he had. One of the guys that I can't compare that to the great horses last century and when says, well, what could they do the? My horse can't. and. The Guy said, well, they could go one hundred miles over mountains and desert. Excuse me I. got a phone call. Anyway and. So Wendell said, well, what about mountains and canyons and so? he got a few of his friends together and they rode from Tahoe Dahmer. When the only plan to do it once. But then so many people said, God of I thought you had any chance at all I would've come with you. That's how the Western states one hundred trail ride now known as the toughest cup began, and this is where I should probably mention that Gordy Ainsley is in just an old friend of window roby's he's now better known as the father of Ultra marathoning. For gordy much as for Wendell the Western states started with a horse when I was a kid. I actually subscribe the Lone Ranger Calling Books Gordy. Dreamed of owning a horse of his own and years later while attending college at UC Santa Barbara, he finally bought a horse named rebel and the lady said someone told her that it would make a good endurance horse I said what's A. Good. Endurance Horse is what was needed to finish the western states? One hundred by this point nineteen seventy-one window roby's trail ride was well established as one of many endurance horse races around the world. Rebel turned out to be a very good endurance horse, but Gordy was not an ideal writer. I weighed two hundred pounds. I would more balanced five. Says most writers walk their horses on the downhills running or trotting them with weight on their backs puts too much pressure on their front legs instead gordy hopped off rebels back and ran down the hills and I'd be passing all these people who are walking their horses. Gordie's very clear on this. He says, he's never been a great runner. He never had a lot of talent but from the time he was very young. He'd learned to find solace in running. I just felt really out of place we were seventh day adventist. Church on the wrong day. My mom and grandma who raised me I didn't have a dad. You know that made me feel really like undeserving. I wanted to belong so much you know and it's like I remember this one day in the. Second Grade. I came out on on the playground. Lunch, grandma packed lunch and I just I. I couldn't see anybody I could go up to and say you want to have lunch panicked and I just I just felt like I couldn't breathe and I I just dropped my lunch in Iran home for lunch Gordy says that was his first run soon, he was running to school whenever he missed the bus so that he didn't have to bother his mother for a ride and then in junior high, he had a teacher who treated gym class like military pt drills, lots of pushups Gordy hated doing pushups. You know I do off and he made me run and I made sure I more a real pained expression whenever he could see me. And I was having a good time. And that brings us back to the early nineteen seventies when gordy running almost as often as he was writing and rebel finished to Western states, trail rides they didn't really like me that much. But wheel on phlegm together. But after that second ride in the summer of Nineteen seventy-two, Gordy Meta woman, and she wanted to get married and have kids and Chelsea on me to give her my horse and I figured well, you know we're going to spend our lives together so. I gave her my horse and then Gordie says the woman dumped him. But she kept his horse. Gordy bought another horse for the nineteen seventy-three Western states but that horse went lame. That's when Gordy had a conversation with the secretary of the Western states trail foundation. Her name was drew syllabi Arner to Silla came up in. She always spoke for Wendell I mean they were just like one voice. And she invited me to run the next year, which was seventy four run as in without a horse. It was an interesting idea. But at first to court, he brushed it off. I've always been a terrible procrastinator. It's historic. And so I I expected Oh, I'll just get another good horse by that time. Well I didn't so training to run a hundred miles over harsh terrain felt easier to you than getting a.

"No Sir claritin liquor for boys port for men, but he who aspires to be a hero smiling mystery brandy in the first place. Brandy is most grateful to the Palette and then brandy will do soonest for a man. Drinking can do for him. They all indeed few who able to drink brandy. That is a power rather to be wishful than attained Samuel Johnson. Good evening and welcome to the bar. In the second of my series on the history of spirits I've chosen to investigate brandy. Typically drunk is an after dinner digestif. GRANDY spirit produced traditionally by distilling wine. The basics of distillation have been with us for a very long time, but it wasn't until the ninth century that it was described in the manner. We know today. Eventually, it spread to Italy on the rest of the continent of Europe. By the Fifteenth Century to began to be used all master still variety of basis into spirits. And slowly various national drinks from Volta to whiskey developed. Is Not entirely clear. Wine began being fortified into brandy. In some jurisdictions, wine was taxed volume, and by distilling the wine into brandy. It was possible to avoid tax and mix it with water afterwards. High alcohol content also made the wine travel veteran long voyages, and was therefore used a method of preservation. Anyone, who has visited a distiller can tell you. Aging in wooden casks can have a significant effect on the taste of distilled drink with the aroma of the casks, being drawn out by the alcohol over time. The name Brandy comes from the Dutch word, but I'm D- wine meaning the wine. The name is apt as most brandies made by applying heat originally from open flames two wine. While brandies are usually made from wine or other fermented fruit juices. Can actually be distilled any liquid that contains sugar. All the too quiet that the liquid bailout ferment and should be heated past the boiling point of water. Almost every country has their own national brandy, many of which are not made from wine. GRAPPA in Italy is made from grape skins. slivovitz in Poland made, from plums. Shoot you in Japan is made from rice and born in the united. States is made from corn. Brandy of course is better known as Scotch Whisky. That being said the vast majority of brandies are traditionally made from wine. It is not strange. Therefore, the best and most famous brandies tend to be associated with well known and well respected wine regions. The ALMANAC can cognac regions are among the most famous brandy produces. ALMANAC is the oldest brandy distilled in France and in the past was consumed Fritz therapeutic benefits. In the Fourteenth Century Prior Vitale. Full Cardinal wrote the detach forty choose. It enlivened the spirit. If taken immoderation recalls, the past memory renders men joyous preserves youth and delays senility. Cognac exhibits an abundance of qualities, fruit, subtle rumors wolf intensity, and above all complexity with thousands of flavors, all stemming from predominantly just one grape variety. While you will likely have heard of a few major brands such as running Mata. It is the variety and the small families that have been distilling with secrets passed down through the generations that make these spirits so interesting. Aficionados flocked to the region to obtain different vintages from a wide range of distillers who each have their own unique family history. You may have heard of Cherry Brandy as well. It is not as the name might suggest a fruit brandy obtained by distillation referred to in France's. Rather most cherry brandies in fact, liqueurs with most produces mass rating, their own choice of cherries with the bay spirit of vodka before the addition of other enhancing flavours. Unlike with Jin where a lot of innovation in recent years led to a boom in the market, brandy brands pride themselves on the tradition of the drink. However brand is still trying to align itself with younger drinkers as in some ways that previous marketing has set them up a drink for the sophisticated older drinker. This has led to the majority of the Brandy. Drinkers being in the fifties sixties older. Brandy is being positioned now with a view to find its way into the glasses of people in their thirties, who likely don't have to? Cantor sat at home and might not have considered the drink before. Spanish brandy well placed in this regard is not only is it often sell for a lower price than the more venerable French brands, but it has already started to innovate.

Straight-talking Fauci explains outbreak to a worried nation
"The National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases director Anthony Fauci says that he expects Americans to be stuck inside or at least the next several weeks as measures to flatten the curve ramp up he also says that he cannot see that all of a sudden then the next week or two but now that it's going to be over don't think there's a chance of that he also provides that officials would likely won't know whether measures to flatten the curve a working until later this spring joining us on a lot as Dr Joe cantor assistant state health officer Dr Kantor welcome to the show thank you Sir good morning it's good to be back with you thank you Sir let's first doctor go five cheese comments up you know a lot of people have this expectation that in ten days twelve days or so that this event will begin to reveal itself in a more profound way and that we might be on the back side of route that you know of reaching recovery your thoughts well a couple thoughts on that you know I think doctors found she of highways just just been a real voice of clarity in all of this I am trying to watch everything that he says because he's he's so good at explaining these things and I was giving good advice the revolution but he looking at this from a national perspective and so you had outbreaks occurring across the country a couple weeks apart you know word work couple weeks behind Seattle for example so you take that in aggregate for the country I think he's absolutely right good take on you know a month or two before you can really see what we're doing and what the effects are I don't think that's particularly accurate for for down here you know in the greater New Orleans region we are farther along in this outbreak than most people in the country are and I would expect us to get information on how effective were being certainly sooner then we will for the country at large not that there is a lack coming because you know for example a case that will get reported as positive today that swab might've been swabbed for five days ago it might have become symptomatic two three days prior to that and that patient was typically exposed an average of five days prior to that it could be as long as fourteen days prior to that so there is a lag time from an intervention that hits now until when you see the results coming in in terms of you know the hopeful decrease indications so as of today we reporting I think over eight hundred cases of about thirty four hundred ninety eight tested thirty six of a little over half of the parishes now affected here if I'm hearing you correctly you believe that we reach the peak in two weeks three weeks hi I don't know yet I really couldn't say about that that you know time will tell you know one of the effects of what in the current political successful is you might actually people that later if you successfully platform the card right which would be welcome news for us so you know it it's hard to project when you know when people want to know when this is going to be over and and I can't answer that right now yeah I mean it's the one question I get all the time who you know I was walking down yeah my wife and I in the neighborhood and and got that question the other day a lot of people you know want to know is it two months is it a month that's what I'm in the angst and anxiety is growing out there trying to figure out when this will land it's one of those questions that I have difficulty getting my head around we know that and when we think about a series of concentric circles that the smallest circle being locked down right where everybody's just got it comma lockdown in place you go know where everything's closed and we understand how that's going as we look at the curve and and in the reported cases do you have any thought about how we come out of this at at what point does does it become a a situation where one can say okay coast is clear everyone can can now leave their homes I think there will be a a general consensus that yep things are at least flattening it's not getting better right now it is clear things are getting worse and I don't even think that were in the roughest part of this yet but the roughest part of this is when the hospitals are you know about capacity and that that hasn't happened yet it's coming no question this hasn't happened yet that's really you know all the measures that were during now that's the end intention is to prevent this massive surge of sick patients all at once in the hospitals and we're still we're still a week or two away from really being in the middle of that so I think folks want to sense when things have not planned off but to be clear and and and and the governor's office clear about this yesterday to you know we're not there yet all yeah I mean when we look at the curve in comparison to Italy and we see that we are experiencing you know per capita something steeper obviously that creates pause and you know you're wondering how this is all gonna gonna play out in talking to a number of health care officials over the over this weekend this personal protection equipment shortage seems to be something that's really hitting a crisis level not only here but across the country any thoughts on that degree I couldn't agree more spending time in in one of the E. ours this weekend speaking with colleagues nurses and so forth it's not a not a great place to be at the moment you cannot health care workers and and you know and I included in that definition everyone that works in the hospital from from people that are you know helping keep their rooms clean the demon doing janitorial tasks and everything in there you got health care workers who are putting themselves on the front lines yeah on it in a frightening pandemic personal question about that method they're showing up to work in and they're working very long hours there's actually a a long line that you can get into the hospital because every single person whether an employer not get their temperature checked upon walking in the people are working long hours and cannot do oftentimes being asked to do so without all the equipment that they were ideally half asking the after concert concert this protective equipment and and the rationale that's not a great place to be than all every doctor and nurse and I know I'm going to continue showing up to work because that's who they are and you're honest to god here I cannot tell you how it on I am of my colleagues on the front lawn to the user honest to god here is that our showing up to work working long long hours the end and doing so at some risk to themselves and not always being given that the full department department that they are ideally should have I think yeah I think that would be a great time for people if you know someone that works in a hospital just to reach out to him and let him know that you're thinking of you support him show some love give the text message do what you can do it to let them know that their efforts are
Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach
"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.
Weinstein case could influence other sex crime prosecutions
"Are talking this hour about the verdict handed down yesterday in the case against Harvey Weinstein. And what if any work remains to be done in the metoo movement and whether or not yesterday's verdict was a watershed moment in the metoo movement? I'm joined by a team. Goss graves. She's president and CEO of the National Women's Law Center and co-founder of Times Up Legal Defense Fund and joining us. Now from New York is Jodi Kantor. Jody along with her colleague. Megan twohey both from the New York. Times they are Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporters who first broke the story about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual harassment behavior to say the least Jodie and Megan are co authors of the two thousand eighteen book. She said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi Kantor welcome to on point. Glad to be with you so first of all I. Have you been in touch with many of the women who even speaking to over the years in the in the wake of the Weinstein verdict yesterday and if so what have they told you I had? I actually delivered the news. Tash Lee Judd. Yesterday I called her Emmy told her. I just really a few minutes after the guilty verdict. What had happened and she took a second and he just said this is the way it's supposed to be. This is the way it's supposed to be. And then what did? What did she mean by that? What more does she tell you? I think what team anticipated. Harvey Weinstein signature is lack of accountability. This is a man who manipulated people. Who PRESSURED THEM TO SIGN? Nondisclosure AGREEMENTS PAID PEOPLE OFF Often intimidated and threatened people according to numerous sources and former employees and the idea that he is finally facing accountability. I think meant a tremendous amount to different people. Some people felt closer people. Some people felt Satisfaction. But I think when you look at the power of me too. It's really accountability. That's driven the whole thing. The idea that there are consequences for this kind of behavior is what caused other people to come forward in the first place. Jodi you've been following this story for so long now. I wonder what you make. Of the fact that he was found guilty on those on those two counts against him but but not but not all of them. What's what is the the the implications of that. It was a mixed verdict. Which I think is actually pretty symbolic of me to that. It is very hard to resolve these issues in society and remember that the jury was charged with interpreting a lot of complicated questions about consent. This was by no means You know a sort of Straightforward set of allegations. And so. I think I think we as the Society of the lot of these jurors we ask them to go into a room and resolve things that the rest of us have not really worked out And the U. and Megan wrote a story just yesterday for the Times Following the the the verdict. And it you point out your remind us of the two thousand eighteen verdict against bill cosby the Cosby and the Weinstein verdicts taken together. Do you think that we're we're seeing a change in terms of as you're making put it end of story people's acceptance of the quote messy -ness of these kinds of cases and what it takes to prove? What happened in a court of law? That's the question I mean either. To very high profile cases but especially in the Weinstein trial part of the significance of the verdict comes from the fact that this was a really long shot case in a lot of ways. It was risky for the prosecutors. Some fellow prosecutors didn't even think the New York Attorney New York. Da was right to miss soured And so then the fact that they won this victory means that they may have done something to shift andries of sex crimes prosecutions and whose stories get hurt annoy only heavy for another minute or two more. Jodi because I imagine you're still very busy but there is no problem. I just WanNa ask you one last question. I mean as I'm just wondering if I could ask you to step just a hair outside your role as a as a reporter for a moment and just reflect with me on what this moment meant to you and to Megan in terms of all the work that you put in to do the investigations that drove this issue into the public mind. What does the verdict mean to you? Well thank you for asking. That mean when I would say is that the meaning of this work was clear to me from within the very first phone calls to the very first braves women who told us their stories and we did this work without knowing what we would find what we are others would uncover. What the extent of the allegations are now we can see crimes would turn out to be and we hit the way. Yeah whether Weinstein would be prosecuted or not and and and what would result from that prosecution? You do the story just to find the truth. Knowing the journalism may be the only form of count ability that he faces or knowing that it could lead to something more we'll Jodi cantor is the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for The New York Times Co author with Megan. Twohey of she said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi thank you very much. Thank you take care.
Two NYT journalists set off to uncover one of the biggest scandals of the decade
"The New York. Times investigations team. Jodi cantor was facing a new challenge. ENJ- for years should reported on workers rights and specifically women's rights companies like Amazon or starbucks. You know I had come to believe. The gender kind of can't open are a for investigative journalism that these stories were not only about women's experiences but because women are often me outsiders at these organizations. If you focused on the women's experiences you could learn a lot about what was really happening inside. It may twenty seventeen and her editor put her onto a new patch. The previous mumps has seen a slew of allegations around powerful men in the public eye allegations of sexual abuse use and harassment about bill cosby or TV anchor. Bill O'Reilly The Times made of sort of all around commitment to sexual harassment reporting and so we decided to look in academia in factories in restaurants in Silicon Valley etc etc but that was a huge patch. Cover so where do you start well for Jodi. It was with a tweet that caught some people's attention a few months early. Ah The tweets was from Hollywood. Actress rose McGowan and in just a few characters artists. It promised away into the story. The tweets was accompanied with the Hashtag. Why women don't report and read as follows? Because it's it's been an open secret in Hollywood slash media and they shame me while agitating rapist. Jody sense who the tweet might be about it. Tallied was something elsewhere somebody had given me a tip about Harvey Weinstein and said the story really needs to be done but we were really starting from nothing. We a new only rumors had no idea whether they will real or not so subtle at her desk in New York. Jody stead her computer screen. She was not a celebrity gossip tip columnist. She didn't have any connections with anyone in this world. And it's not exactly an easy universe to wonder into. I didn't know any actresses you normally emily when you're trying to get in touch with the famous person. You call their publicist or their agent. But we did not want to do that. Because with all due respect to this people they're gatekeepers and we thought they would just shut us down and a few people Jodi did manage to talk to didn't exactly fill her confidence that there was even a story here. Harvey Weinstein Though A well-known in the industry wasn't exactly a household name people had heard of his films and his company but not that many people would have been able to point him out in the crowd and Jodi kept hearing the same thing. There were some very condescending Hollywood sources who lectured us and they say things like oh Jodi the casting couch which is just a part of Hollywood and it's been that way from the beginning. It's a very unfortunate part of our industry but it's just not changeable and look you're never get your little story but if you do nobody will care. Feeling a bit stuck Jodi went to her editors they had an idea another reporter who face similar roadblocks alien her reporting give mecanical. They suggested so Jodie and I didn't really know each other She had been at the times for much longer than I had. And she was wondering what to say when you as a reporter when you do get a woman on the phone who you suspect has been a victim of of sexual harassment or assault. What you say in those first thirty seconds to try to keep them on the phone but you know I basically tapped into some of the experiences dances that I had had in that reporting which was to say? I can't change what's happened to you in the past but if we work together we're able to publish the truth. We might be able to protect other other people. We might be able to use your private pain towards some sort of constructive purpose. Meghan put the phone down but couldn't stop thinking about a work. Jody was doing so when she returned to the office after her maternity leave. She knew exactly what she wanted to do. I quickly ended up becoming her partner on the

"Hollywood is touted as a magical place where where dreams come true where you can be a nobody one day and a star the next but if you scrub hard enough you can see the grime embedded deep into into the history of Tinseltown. No one understands the dark side of Hollywood better than a police officer in Nineteen ninety-two pat top. Ya was a detective for the crime. Impact team for the La County Sheriff's department homicides. That year had hit a record high. It was over twenty. Five hundred murders reported many believe the rise in crime was due to gang related violence as one of the many contributing factors and the accessibility of guns by nineteen ninety two underground parties called Raves. Chiefs have become really popular in Hollywood. The idea was brought over from England where thousands of people regularly attended raves. and where musical acts like the happy Mondays and other acid house bands were local heroes each evening.

The Pilgrim Trails of Italy
"Hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can.

The macy's Thanksgiving Day parade marches through the streets of New York City city elaborate floats giant helium balloons marching bands acrobats and celebrities create a carnival atmosphere for more than eighty years. The parade has has drawn spectators who lined the streets cheer on the participants covering two and a half miles. A three hour spectacle runs from nine. AM to noon. The holiday event has grown and grown over time from a small parade of floats and live animals organized by macy's employees into large-scale annual tradition to this day though apart from performing coming talent all other parade participants such as balloon handlers are macy's employees and their family and friends. The parade showcases more than eight thousand participants pence and crowds of more than three point. Five million spectators crammed Manhattan streets for close up view. Another fifty million watch the prayed on TV. So how did we you get here. macy's department store celebrates its one hundred and sixty first anniversary in two thousand nineteen store staged. Its first Thanksgiving Day parade in nineteen twenty twenty four that year it was called the macy's Christmas parade and it featured three floats pulled by horses. Four bands and zoo animals from the central park zoo including camels donkeys elephants and goats. Santa Claus was last in the lineup. A tradition that continues to this day it was all staged by end at the request. Request of macy's employees many of whom had just emigrated to America from Europe along to celebrate their new home in nineteen twenty seven the gigantic balloons. That are now. The signature element of the parade made their first appearance with the help of helium. The balloon replaced the zoo animals. That were frightening to some children and the first balloons included cartoon tune characters like Felix the cat at the conclusion of the parade. The giant balloons were released into the air in nineteen twenty eight. macy's began offering the one hundred dollar reward for any returned balloons which were fixed with the return address label in nineteen thirty one pilot. Colonel Clarence e chamberlain snagged a balloon with his airplanes wings leading to a ban on retrieval by airplanes the following year and after the nineteen thirty two parade another pilot attempted to capture a balloon in nearly crashed leading macy's to discontinue releasing the balloon loons at the parade's end in nineteen thirty four celebrities became an important element of the parade but senior actor. Eddie Cantor joining the event that year. The the Mickey Mouse Helium Balloon was also introduced that you're parade goers from nineteen forty two to nineteen forty four. The prey was cancelled because of the shortage of helium and rubber during world world. War Two those three years. The only time that the celebration has ever been called off when the prey returned nineteen forty five. It was broadcast on television for the first time time and was bigger than earlier versions. But the floats didn't achieve their current spectacle status until nineteen sixty nine when Manfred Bass began creating them best asked designed to them so that they could be flattened their trip through the Holland tunnel they were then reassembled during the predawn hours of the parade. Today macy's begins planning planning for the parade at least a year in advance and includes float and balloon creation celebrity booking volunteer coordination and training for clowns and balloon handlers. As the prayed it grows closer. The preparations get more intense in two thousand. Nineteen macy's celebrating. Its Ninety Third Parade with twenty six floats sixteen giant helium character balloons and forty heritage and novelty balloons and eleven marching bands. But let's talk about those balloons a former tootsie roll factory in Hoboken New Jersey just across the river from New York City. The balloons are created by the macy's parade studio. It all starts with a pencil sketch. Aerodynamic and engineering consultants assist calculations to make sure the balloon will fly properly exact scale replicas. One made out of clay and one painted model are fashioned before the actual balloon is cut out fabric. Each balloon. has several chambers and includes a zipper and inflation device and a high pressure valve flight. Inflation and deflation tests are run and cosmetic adjustments are made. Finally finally the balloon can appear in the parade up to a year after the process began balloons. These days are constructed of polyurethane though they used to be made of rubber since the switch from air to helium these behemoth balloons have coasted along with a big dose of help from Volunteer Balloon Wrangler. But it hasn't always been that easy to keep the balloons afloat. In nineteen fifty-eight the balloons were filled with air and hoisted by cranes onto trucks. Due to a helium shortage and poor weather conditions kept the balloon from being inflated at all in nineteen seventy one the balloons dimensions vary but most are about five six stories high and somewhere around sixty feet long and thirty feet wide. Each balloon needs around Ninety D.. Handlers in all their around two three thousand balloon handlers for the prayed these handlers must weigh at least one hundred and twenty pounds and be in good health of those only a few hundred team leaders are required to attend training though all are invited. Training includes lessons on dynamics geometry and physics then Blantyre's practice handling one of the big balloons on a field. The team leaders include an overall leader pilot captain and two drivers a police officer marches with each balloon own handlers. Hold the ropes to guide the balloon and each balloon is also tethered to two eight hundred pound. Utility vehicles instruments that measure the speed of wind. called called a Momma's I think are mounted on Poles at key points along the route and each one is monitored with a portable computer by a police officer in a New York City office of Emergency Management Representative. Well before the prayed begins objects that could obstruct balloons including arms of lamp posts traffic signal. Polls streetlights and trees are either altered or removed on the eve of the parade. The balloons and floats are brought. To New York City. Setup begins by six. AM Thanksgiving Day. The balloons and floats are ready to go. And prayed.

Giants Name Daniel Jones the Starter, Sending Eli Manning to the Bench
"Re hitting the top story of the day Daniel Jones going to start this week for the New York giants against the Tampa Bay buccaneers Eli Manning officially benched looks like his career with China's over as the starting quarterback well again and we'll see what Daniel Jones happened. I mean he could get blown up and then he lies back in there. Yes that's true I I mean but we haven't heard from Pat Shurmur and we will tomorrow and and what we will hear as I'm sure he's the quarterback and we're moving forward with him and Eli will do his best to mentor him in any. I don't think Eli wants to be traded on like he wants to go anywhere. People are wondering if he is traded spot track tweeted out while unlikely if the giants do trade Eli Manning. He'll cost his new team six hundred seventy six thousand dollars as per week ten point one million dollars to the rest of the season. The giants have already paid him six point eight million the jets are going to get Sam darnold back before or the midseason point okay. The Jaguars are going to get nick foles back around the midseason point. Drew brees is coming back around the midseason point. The steelers are not getting big ben back but it makes sense for them to see who they have in Wehr young guy a guy that Ben didn't want to mentor cantor when he was drafted last year he was definitely rankled by the drafting of Mason Rudolph the of that. I don't believe there's any doubt and he didn't say a mentor him like Rudolph said it's not Ben's Job to mentor me and he used that on his radio show which has since since been shuttered that just to put it all out there that I'll just point to the book and just say you know that's yours since he doesn't want me to mentor him even thought it was funny and and it landed with a thud but they have to see what they have in Mason Rudolph and at Mason Rudolph. Let's say performs like Dak where it's amazing and he's terrific traffic and the team makes the playoffs and gets a playoff start then. We're going to have an interesting thing on her hands right here. Ben will come back and come back saying I am ready to show up and it'll be like far like when Aaron Rodgers got there like oh I don't plan will be ready to garage. Come back in shape. He'll probably say ten fifteen rounds and it'll be ready to go and put the steelers and a tough bind but that is a high class problem and the steelers are going to find out if that's a high class problem that they can have because at some point Ben will be done and Mason Rudolph. We'll be sitting there and for Mason Rudolph he'll be able to just basically say to them because they don't have a fifth year option on him because he wasn't a first round draft pick nick franchise tag me Pittsburgh or trade me and someone also pay me like Jimmy Garoppolo. This is a big opportunity for him and whose his first quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo so we lies not going anywhere no one's going to be wanting to hire Eli manning and the giants the best backup quarterback and perfect mentor for for Daniel Jones perfect. Why would they trade him? who had taken are just told every? I just gave you the possibilities. Nobody needs him but you're you're. You're not like it's not like there's a Minnesota Vikings situation where they had to pull the trigger for Sam Bradford because they had a super bowl ready team that went poof because teddy bridgewater blew his knee up but if you take away his name. Ui Manning and you look on paper you're trying to acquire a guy is three and nineteen eighteen again his last starts and seven years old and I'll say this again do we have shown O'Hara's tweet and obviously he's biased. He won a super bowl with Eli. Put it up Shara so incredibly disappointed and frustrated with the giants right now. Defense gives up sixty three points in two games wide receiver group is depleted but let's change your. QB question marks Kurt said the same thing he sees the film you lie is not making poor decisions. He's making the right decisions. The only decisions decisions he has in front of him and he's being held to account now you can say that it's been a long time coming but it's not the only answer and Daniel Daniel Jones and again credit gettleman. He's putting it out there right now he could have sat there and say I take the rest of the year because the ownership is ready for you. Take the rest of the year and then I'll get more. I'll get more top five picks for Daniel Jones but he didn't do it. What if Daniel Jones comes out as three hundred yards and beats the bucks this week while then we're we're not talking about any more we
