The Slow Regrowth of Vulnerable Coral Reefs is Solvable

"Minds. Sarah, Hamlin I'm a scientist Mike Marine Lab in Florida and myself is growing car rates forty to fifty times a spade that Karl grows in the wild. Now there's a number of reasons while Koru is really important I mean who doesn't love going out snorkeling and seeing colorful reefs teeming with beautiful fish but they also provide us with goods and services whether that be tourism or employment the food table. And Florida align every system he is estimated to be worth about eight billion dollars not only that but these race protect I landed property from things like storm surge. So really good example of this is Hurricane Irma which was in two thousand seventeen had twenty five foot waves heating the Florida race track down in Lewke where I am and we had a storm surge at building, which is in Summerlin K. of only five foot. So we didn't have a rift system they're healthy ray system there you can imagine that that storm surge those waves would really decimate the land. So I I can hear your Australian accent Australia of course, famous for the Great Barrier Reef what's going on with climate change and coral reefs around the world? Well, wide was seeing a great reduction in live Carl Kaba So this is across the well whether it be Australia United States or any Pacific Ocean island nations. You might have heard of coral reefs as the rainforest say and that that's saying is because even the car reefs tyke out less than one percent of the seafloor. twenty-five percent of nine marine species actually rely on car roofs. At some stage of their life we're seeing Wolmar, she anik temperatures. We're seeing a lot more pollution going into the oceans, and this is resulting in las of live Carl tissue almost as much. If any consequences of climate change, I can think of the people who are really in contact with this are shocked and appalled and upset at a level that those of us who don't come into coral on a into contact with Karl on a daily basis. I don't really get I mean I have your you're in the Florida keys I have a nephew who's into a skin diving and spearfishing in Miami and he's a young guy, and just in the years he's been doing this the coral around Miami I mean he's like shocked and upset when he sees it and says, he can't really fish anymore just because of the change in the last decade, we have lost around ninety percent of that Caro cover in the last forty or fifty years and some of the race in the. Case now or the Florida Reef tractor as low as between four and six percent starting Caro cover, which is quite loy. So we're talking on zoom you have a fantastic backdrop of coral and I don't know enough to know what kind it is but we hear these terms like staghorn coral and I heard of Elk Horn coral what are the main forms of coral that you're working with and what do they look like? We have branching corals and we have massive Carl's so branching Caro's the Stag owns the call and you. Can picture what the antlers of a staghorn or alcorn look like they look exactly like that. So skinny branch is really perfect three dimensional habitat for fish and shrimp and all the Little Rafe critters out there, and then we've got a massive Carl's and these might be brain corals essentially look like the folds and grooves of a brain stock Carl's have They polyps alike little cop. So little stars and their every feeling Carl's they the Carl's that are creating the race and really growing that lodge Rafe structure that remained stable off the storms

Review: Live-action ‘Mulan’ is gorgeous but short on magic

"Which has metamorphosed from its animated classic into a live action thrillers they'll face Just my duty to protect my family. Let's dive in on Mulan and Charlie Kaufman's new movie. I'm thinking of ending things. Joining us live on Skype with her reviews. Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday. Hello, Anne. Hello, Hilary. So Disney definitely takes a risk when it revisits a childhood classic like Mulan. Will fans be satisfied or kind of annoyed? Oh, I think, um I don't think they'll be annoyed. They might be surprised. This is not the move on that. A lot of young women and boys grew up with the lot of the comedy And these certainly the music of that animated classic from 1998 have been excised, and it's kind of grown up along with its audience into Ah, you know, this is rated PG 13. And they mean it. This is a pretty serious minded, battle minded war picture about this young woman who goes into battle to defend her country from northern invaders and find herself along the way and proves her strength and her self empowerment and it's a beautiful I will say it visually stunning film. Niki Caro has directed. This was a lot of sweep and attention to detail. The costumes are exquisite in the landscapes, and I thought that the story is It's epic. It's bloody. There isn't literal blood, but there's a lot of fighting, so I just want Especially parents to go in knowing that this is not the little, the little mulatto 1998. This is grown up Mulan for a different generation, but I think brings just as much value and Ah, beauty to it is the first one

Black Lives Matter protests risk spreading Covid-19

"There are still protesters out about is this is been a we get across the nation across the country across the world where people are voicing their opinions about the death of George Floyd meanwhile question that has been raised as could the civil unrest all these large gatherings in protest things lead to a spike in coronavirus cases Caro these dumb little talk to former director of the Dallas County health department about that Dr Jon Karl well thanks for thanks for having me on I think it is a tough time right now to really gauge risk and in there so much we don't know about corona virus are ready there were using as best we can information we have in order to really make sure we're being as safe as possible I think there is some safety and being outside you know I think the biggest risk is in confined spaces in indoor settings so I do think that the outdoor environment is probably better than the indoor environment and I do see a lot of folks wearing masks and face protections at the same time so I think there are some things that are being done that has been proved to safety are they get as you know it there's still a lot we don't know that's something I was going to ask if being outside it does help secondarily to that if somebody is going to go to one of these gatherings how do you recommend that they protect themselves well we do think that being outside does offer protection I think the big thing is the sunshine and ultraviolet rays from the sun actually does quite a number on on viruses so we think that there's a really good thing that the sun can do to protect us now to what degree that is you know if you're in confined spaces perhaps in the shade or something like that I mean I think there's still some some open questions there but we do know from our studies from from the epidemic so far that very few people have gotten coronavirus from from an outside transmission occurrence so so that's certainly good news now I mean what recommendations I well I would have number one I do think that you would want to wear some face protection the masks in a X. cetera would be it is an important thing to have if you're if you're going out in these environments to hand washing you know the tried and true method keeping your hands clean especially after touching common surfaces you know staying off your your eyes your nose in your mouth you know it which with your hands is going to help protect you I'm in three is really keep try to keep distance you know really six feet apart we know that's going to be pretty hard to do in this this type of a setting but as much as you can I would I would try to stay as far away from one another at least with some distance as best as possible blasting those days you know you're not gonna be in a confined space or something around the same people at the same time for that duration of an amount of time so you know the more fleeting that you are in contact with different people I think that the less risky that some of these events might actually have for forgetting corona

"He wants to cement himself with the Texas Oilman Texas contractors and up for confirmation as a man named Leland olds who had been on the federal power commission which regulates the oil industry. So it's mentioned in all Johnson right that he holds hearings on Owl's and paints him as a communist some of these books that he was a communist paint semester. Communist and defeats is nomination. I said well I wanna read the hearings. You ask why the books takes so long. Hearings are a lot of reading. Because there's a lot of extraneous matter but woven through this year. I Say I am reading. A story of a man Lyndon Johnson destroying another human being for political ends. I can't believe it. I mean I I remember reading these hearings all night. Underlining the last so look what he's doing here he takes this man who has a young young man in his twenties had flirted with the Communist Party and had written for the daily worker and painted him as a committed communist and destroyed his life. Olds was a respected man. After that he lived the rest of his life. Always struggling for money shunned by all his almost all his old friends. Because it wasn't safe to be known to be his friends and Johnson is doing this and it sort of horrible so I tried to find everybody who's connected with it and I found one eight. Who Standing Johnson has just had a cross examination of old saying used to still believe this. He would quote articles from the Twenty S. Also try to explain that he didn't leave it. Johnson would cut him off and he is a man standing with legal and goals in the lunch and break for the hearings recess break and remember and Johnson comes out and throws his arms around. Old says throws one arm around the show and said I hope you're not taking this personally leland just politics you know so. I said I'm going to tell the story when you say you're going to tell the story like Pamela. You know it's going to take a lot of pages if you tell us right human story and you have to paint to human beings Lyndon Johnson and Leila Knowles. Sometimes you get a feeling that you've done the right thing in this book comes out me. No one had heard of legal analysis anymore. I'm signing books. I think in some ways I think it was in Seattle. But don't really remember young. You sitting there on these you give a tort is a long line of people all of a sudden. This voice says to me island old granddaughter. I WANNA thank you for saving my grandfather's reputation. Well I have to tell you there are moments when you do these folks that you feel at there are a lot of moments when you don't feel good about what you'd moments when you feel good about some. Wow I mean you read the biography. It is like a mini biography of Lindell's and to this day. I mean if you go onto wikipedia. He's got like three paragraphs and what you do. Is that rather than start with the facts of the situation. Which you as you state that okay. Here's someone for political purposes in order to win the presidency in order to gain the trust and the money of this lobby in Texas. He's needs to defeat this nomination. Rather than start there you start with. Here's this Guy Leland olds reader. Why are we talking about old? Who comes across as you know a good person? A real idealistic. I thought that it was interesting that you did that to with other characters. Other sort of mini biographies. That appear in the book. That even someone like Richard Russell. You start off and we don't. We don't have a sense of Russell as a tremendous racists from the very beginning your lot about the good things that he did and it isn't until it's almost ballistic. What you do with the character development that you don't the same thing with Eastman who sort of flits in and out in the earlier parts and it isn't until much later in the book that you realized. This guy is a real repressive racist hater. A hater of a black. When you research you read the newspaper Articles The New York Times Washington Russell is held up as the Beau. Ideal of of senator the perfect senator and in foreign affairs he really is like one of the great senators of Rome. When you read about him you study his speeches. You said this must be what a great senators of Rome were like he he had this worldview. American on me should do. This was a very intelligent and informed worldview. Then you start reading the congressional record and you see you can't believe the racism the hatred that sometimes. He's reading speech that you know. He's carefully edited and the hatred comes to and then you realize this is the guy who for thirty years kept the Senate someone said the Senate was the south's revenge for forget nothing can get through the Senate that Russell doesn't want so I said well I can either show the power of the south in the Senate through giving the reader a lecture or I can show it through doing a biography of the man who embodied that power Richard Russell. I have to make the reader really see him so what I did was. I went down to his town wind. You know I'm a northeastern New York. Prison no matter what you think about racism. You don't know it. So he was dead he lived in this house. His father was a judge in a powerful judge when his father Dr Russell idolized the phone and he in Gray. He built an obelisk. You know. It's not a huge house. It's a nice house. Presided US half in the back of it. He builds an obelisk to his father and ordered. It says lover of the old south defender of the new. So you can you start talking one of the things you realize. It wasn't just that he opposed every attempt to make lynching a federal crime. There were two lynchings you say. Where was your? You're reading the weekly newspaper. The Winder whatever it was and talk you know very short. There was an incident on the so and so road. You know that's a lynching you know you talking about. That's just down this road from his house. And then she had two nephews. The law firm penalty who is still called. Russell and Russell. So I've made friends with the two nephews. We're working. I don't remember that. The SARS works wooden. Maybe they were but most of the town is not white. It's so it would be an exaggeration. Familiar say that anyone we walk the breast. You know filling this hard walk. People were coming towards US black people. I don't want to say because I don't really remember that happening that anyone actually stepped off the sidewalk to give us way but I saw the eyes of the people coming towards us and they were ready to stop the sort of work and I just hated. I just came back from that. You said if you make a picture of Russell correctly I don't say I did. It correctly was very hard. I rewrote thing if you do. You're going to show two things the greatness. Oh this man in foreign affairs in directing the armies of the empire it. Let's put it in Roman terms and the horror of this man and playing the leading role in keeping Louis to help black people from passing for decades. And then you say but Lyndon Johnson made Russell believed why did he raise Lyndon Johnson to power? Russell is the guy who raised Lyndon Johnson to power. Then you said you mean Lyndon Johnson made Russia's Russell believe that he believed the same way he did. Yeah that's quite a story. You are famous for taking notes by hand for writing your first and second and third drafts in Longhand and then working on a manual typewriter has technology in any way. There's so much that has been digitized and that's now available video and readily accessible. Has any of this had an effect on the way that you do your research and write. It had no effect on the way right. I still right in the way you just described in longhand typewriter. It has had a terrific effect on my research because the computer makes research like they're all these hearings doing Vietnam the executive sessions of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee or thou- I don't even know the thousands of small print pages. You really read it all but with just safe. One thing control fine. You WanNa know Richard Russell. You know said that's easy so yes it's helped me a lot in recent years because you talk about those huge files just down in the Johnson. Library is that now all digitized and searchable. Almost none of it is subject to some of. It's still hasn't changed. Most of that library hasn't been digital toys. Now you just have to pick the boxes that you feel you would turn every page in. Houston you start off this book talking about your experience as a newspaper reporter. Moseley for Newsday on island where I grew up and I'm curious about two things one. What was the most important thing you learned as a newspaper reporter? That helped you in your in your writing in the process of writing these biographies and is there. Anything that you had to kind of forget because it wasn't useful or wasn't helpful to you will. The most important thing I learned is what I talk about it and working the very first piece of advice I was a new report or I'd never done investigative work. I had this old editor guy out of the front page. I was the First Ivy League graduate who never worked in his city room. I was hired just because he was on vacation. They WANNA play Jokin. He wouldn't even talk to me that I got thrown into an doing something investigative and he liked the memo. I wrote he said exactly. I didn't know someone from Princeton. Could do digging like this from now on you do investigative work all I with my usual poise had something like but I don't know anything about investigative work on this old guard looked at me and he said I've never forgotten the exact words. Just remember one thing. Turn EVERY PAGE. Never assume anything. Turn every Goddamn page and you know. Of course. You can't do that. No Johnson Roy. Doing topic like the Gulf of Donkin. It may take months but you can do it to turn every page and over and over again I his name was Alan Hatheway. I've said to myself. Thank you on because I find some amazing thing. They're in a box just filled with the rest of it is just innocuous stuff and was there anything that you felt like you know what you just kind of. Forget it from your reporting days working fast. People don't believe this anymore. I was really fast rewrite man but I never so. What's things all the way through? You don't as a daily report to tell you the truth. When I started to write the powerbroker I suddenly realized how complicated this was going to be that I understand. Mo. We're Moses got US power. There was so much I didn't understand about. I was going to have to think things all the way through so. That's really the reason Pamela where I write my first drafts in Longhand because the slowest way of committee your thoughts to paper I do a lot of drifts on the one hand and then I go to a minute but in an electric typewriter. I want to ride on a computer. Computers too easy for me. It's fake I. I want to slow myself all right. Well taking a cue from rewriting on interviewing I've saved what is for me at least the most difficult question because they know it's one that you hate getting and so I'm GonNa try not to ask it in the most simplistic way. I know from your book working that you don't like people asking you if you like. Johnson so I don't want to ask it in that way. Exactly perhaps to kind of question. The larger question is do you feel like you get one hundred percent at this point his character and as part of that. Do you find your sympathies with him. Sort of coming and going. I mean he changed a lot right over the course of his life and he was changed by the events of his life. Just curious how. Your sort of personal understanding and sympathies with him or against him have shifted over time. It's a great way to put that question so I spent a lot of time. You know with his brothers and sisters classmates in high school and college. The guys who were in his first political machine I felt I came to understand this character to very strong character at sort of formed in his terrible boy. Is You know you can't really think about Linden. Johnson's boyhood without warning to cry for him because it was a terrible humiliating boyhood in this isolated town..

Robert Caro on How He Does It

"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did

Some of the images in devs are beautiful and mysterious like the giant statue of a little girl the towers over the trees and landscape surrounding the secluded campus of Maya everything is explained in time over the eight episodes and almost nothing is as it seems.

"Powerbroker Robert Moses and decades writing about President Lyndon Johnson. I never was interested in writing a biography of Robert Moses or Lyndon Johnson I never had the slightest interest in writing a book just to tell the story of Batman. I wanted to use their lives to show how political power. That's what I was interested in Caro's book about his writing and research techniques. Working is now out in paperback antique critic. David Cooley reviews to fantasy and science fiction series. Premiering on who an apple. Tv plus some journalists are great at breaking news others like digging into their subjects for weeks or months for investigative stories. Our guest today Robert. Caro has spent decades burrowing into the lives and careers of two men. Who He says. Were masters accumulating and wielding political power. The result has been five widely acclaimed books about how things get done in the corridors of power which have earned two Pulitzer prizes and a host of other awards. Carro spent seven years writing the powerbroker about New York. City insider Robert Moses and his influence on the city and he's written four of five planned volumes on President Lyndon Johnson at age eighty four carroll is working on the last Johnson volume about the Vietnam War but last year he also managed to write a short memoir about how he does what he does unearthing critical facts and old withered documents. Gleaning insights from patient and persistent interviews and writing and rewriting the stories he finds mostly in longhand today. Listen to the interview. I recorded last April with Carol about his methods and his book. Which is now out in paperback. It's called working researching interviewing writing for Robert. Kerr welcome to fresh air You went to Princeton. But you didn't exactly go up an Ivy League family. Tell us a little bit of your background well. Perhaps the most salient thing about my boyhood is. My mother died when I was eleven. Become very sick when I was five. You know in those days if you've got breast cancer and it came back. There wasn't really very much they could do for you so I remember that a lot. My father was hit. He came from Poland when he was a teenager. He spoke English. He taught himself to read and write English by copying out whole columns from the New York Times but his language with his friends with rush so a theaters version of fiddler on the roof. Been great for me You got sent to a good private school where you got into the school newspaper. You went to Princeton and you became a newspaper reporter for Newsday which did a lot of serious investigative reporting in those days. News Day was a true crusading newspaper right. And you did that for years. Yes why did you decide to give up daily reporting and focus on a book about Robert Moses? Oh you know I was a reporter for like six years. I was an investigate became an investigative reporter. Then my interest was on politics political investigations. But you never have a chance to think when you were a reporter you running from one story to the next all of a sudden I got a email and fellowship. That's a year at Harvard to study the area that you're you're covering on paper. I was studying. I had started to get interested in Robert Moses. That's an anecdote that's going to run a little little worn. A lot of our listeners. Know Who Robert Moses is but some don't so maybe just give us a little. Who was this Robert? Moses held power in New York. He was never elected to anything. He held power in New York state in New York City for forty four years. He had more power than any mayor. More power than any governor and more power than any mayor or governor combined and to think of it he held it for almost half a century and with it he shaped New York if you were driving on a highway or a parkway around New York City you are driving on a road built by Robert Moses. He built six hundred twenty seven miles of road. He built one hundred forty eight thousand units of public housing. He reshaped the whole city by putting bulkheads out into the water. The Ocean Hudson River and filling a man with shale so he. He transformed the city and in doing that. He accumulated power. He had levers of power over people. Powerful people in Albany and in New York listened to Robert Moses. You saw some of this as a reporter and you decided you wanted to do what. Well I thought of doing. A Long Series on Robert Moses. Where did he get this power? I realize I didn't know where he got indicted anyone else and it struck me on. Never do this. In the context of daily journalism. I'll have to write a book right. And so you embarked on that project thinking it would take how long I i. Well we have a saying this way we had no saving so I was trying to do it. While I stated Newsday equipped couldn't make any progress. I got a grant for a year. I said too I knocked my wife will finally get to go to France. Get paying me for a year and I'll finish this in nine months. That's what my seven hours law and at the end of that year. We're out of money I we had barely started the book. I knew he was going to take years and years so we sold our house on Long Island. This was before the real estate boom. Unfortunately so we bought it for forty five thousand we sold it for seventy thousand so a cleared twenty five thousand dollars that got us to second year and then we would just broke. You got a little apartment in spite and evil in in the bronx the Bronx. Yes and then you'd been working on this book. And you reached out to Robert Moses which is an enormously powerful guy. Yes and they told you what well you know over forty years numerous biographies some of them quite famous had tried to do a started to do a biography on and I suppose he told them the same thing he told me. I was told it by two public relations. Men who took me out to lunch and inform me across the table that he would never talk to me his family and friends would never talk to me his close no and then they had a phrase no-one Whoever. I don't forget the exact phrase but the import was no one. Whoever wants a contract from the state or city will ever talk to you but I kept started interviewing anyway so I took a series of concentric circles on a piece of paper in the Center. I put a dot that thought was Robert Moses. The inner circle was his family. A closest friends. The next circle was close friends but not quite as. I figured he could keep those people in the first couple of circles from talking to me but out in the outer circles are all the other people that he dealt with. He couldn't think of them all and I started interviewing them and I don't know that this is true since it's on complementary to me but his closest associate has chief subordinate a guy named Sid Shapiro. Once said to me that he realized that someone was finally going to do a biography of him with the re warranted or not Robert Moses. Rian Robert Moses. Yes and after two years. His daughter suddenly calls me out of nowhere. She Calls Him Papa there and she said Papa Bear will see you so I went to have my first interview with Robert Moses What was it like when you met him? Well it was very dramatic. He had a cottage out behind Jones beach. Which is Great Bathing Beach? That he built is a little community. Summa community called Oak Beech he lived. He added some cottage. They're very modest conard but he had ripped out two walls of the living room so through the left hand wall. You saw Robert Moses Causeway the Robert Moses Bridge over the fire island big big period though so big. Oh yes there was like two whole walls of glass so you saw this. Long Bridge. The Robert Moses Bridge out the left hand window out the right hand window use of the column of Robert Moses State Park. He sat in the corner and this huge black leather chair. Robert Moesa when you talk to your looking at Robert Moses frame by his monuments wow and candid yes I remember. I was the legislature had been opposed to Jones beach. I asked how how how is changed. I he said something like the following year was two seven against us in assembly ways and means but the key vote with Stevens of Colorado's county and Stevens had a mortgage on his farm in the mortgage on his farm was held by the Rochester. First National Bank and the key to the Rochester Bank was so and so so we got Stevens Voth News. Eight two seven. He remembered all the details. Yeah well he knew all those pressure points. Remember Jack and yet what was he like when you challenge them? There came a point in the seventh interview where he was very. I mean educated me a lot but a lot of the things that he was telling me did not comport with the faxes. I was learning them from the papers of the governor's that he's mega-city served soon. As I started asking him questions I saw his eyes change and shortly thereafter. He said well that's enough for today and I never got to see him again. Every time after that that I call the secretary said he was busy and when the book was published he wrote a critique. Oh Yes oh yes I you know. He was a great writer himself. He was the editor of Poetry magazine. Yale he whistled gray writer and I remember. He used these phrases. That you're not. He will attack me for years and you re this thing in the paper and you say. I never think of myself. Say Oh that poor basic carol. That's me in his first attack. I remember he was trying to make the point a point of doubtful validity. I must tell you. I wish Johnny come lately. Environmentalist and that he had always been environmentalist and he called me a seasonal world ponder I. He had great phrases. Yeah the the book that you've just finished working has a lot of stories about how you keep at it and you keep at it and you find things. Give us one example of one of the unseen ways that Robert Moses acquired used power and how you found out about it well for one thing he wouldn't let me see his papers of course and he's papers were kept on his headquarters. Ron Randall's island. There was a coward or with all these file cabinets in an a guard at the door. I needed those papers. One day. A friend of mine. Who's who would become the public relations and great crusading editor named Mary. Nichols who had become the PR person for the Parks Department. Cozma and said I hear you doing a book on Robert Moses and I said that's right and she said I hear you can't see his papers and I said that's right. She said well you know what he forgot about. Carbon copies turns out that he had twelve different agencies that he was the head on and he communicated with them by Carbon Copies. This is the era before Xerox. And when he left the one of them the Parks Commissionership. He forgot about the carbon copies. And she said I know where they are. And that can get you the key. So they were stored two or three levels down underneath the seventy ninth street boat basin next to the Hudson River in Manhattan. So I went down there. It had been designed as garage a huge garage for sanitation. Part Department trump. There were no trucks parked. I turned on the light and against the far wall was this role of thirty years of document..

LiveIntent - The Fight Against Facebook Starts With Email

"I've learned since earning a name for myself on linked tandem, picking up that linked Tim top voice award. He's never have all your eggs in one basket. And don't rely on a game where you're playing by somebody else's rules on their playground because they control that pay to play model, and they can turn that type of any moment and start charging you to make your voice heard amongst following that you've created now when Lincoln and the algorithms changed like could have been finished, but creating by own platform, the I ruin was possibly the best decision. I ever made. And of course, you build up your own Email list. An over the is obscene this grow more and more because publishes did give away there. Inventory over to Facebook, and many of them paid a very heavy price for doing that. Because ultimately Facebook gets revenue from user engagement, and the publisher they don't own or control that distribution method, and in response to realizing that they've been taken advantage of over the years by these walled gardens with now beginning to witness to Rene sons of Email for publishes publishers have realized that they have locked in channel that they own. That's right Email and now Email newsletter is all acting as a bulwark against Facebook and their ilk. So buckle up and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to New York. So we can speak wave corral Cooper, s three P global marketing at live in ten who's going to talk about how publishers are fighting against those wall gardens with Email. Sequel welcome to the show corral. Kenny tell that listeners about who you are. And what you do. Yes. Thanks for for having me on the on the podcast by names. Caro- cooper. I am currently the senior vice president of global marketing and a Martin company called live in tent with the company now for little four and a half years and various roles from account management proc marketing. And now a heading up all of marketing prior to live and ten is. I pretty much grew up. I would say on the publisher side of our industry. That's where I had, you know, most of my professional development growth, if you will and more specifically at a local news publisher of call advanced digital where I was there for almost eight years running at operations and platform, strategies and. I guess as a as a side note, a co a partner of mine in the space is name is Eric Rickett in he worked for a company called inner markets, a good friend of mine in space. He and I started a podcast about a year ago called the minority report podcast. And essentially what that podcast is is. It's a way for us to sort of create a platform to allow people of color women. People have diverse backgrounds within the marketing advertising space to tell their story. Right. So the podcast is less about sort of the day to day of advertising marketing, but more about getting to know people on a personal level. So, you know, talking about their background their upbringing, their culture, their views on diversity and inclusion in space so on and so forth and we've been doing that for about a year, which has been a really cool experience for me. Filo putt cast him. I'm gonna have to gang bail. My best behavior. Now. Despite being a full of IT guy. I wanted to read techies that puts people before technology, and that is one of the reasons that put you guys Amar radio is because you describe yourself as a people base marketing tech company, so keep telling listeners a little bit more about live in ten and how you're changing the way brands and publishes actually think about Email now. Yes, sure. So the company lying Ted we've been around for a little over ten years. Actually last month was our our tenure bursary, and essentially we started out as helping publishers solve the ability to deliver ads within Email, newsletters, because there really wasn't an efficient way to dynamically deliver and Prussian campaigns within with an Email, newsletters. And so over the course of I would say ten years here, we built up this massive ecosystem within easy. L, newsletters, where now we work with over twenty five hundred of polishes of brands to help them to help them acquire retain monetize their audience within Email newsletters in. It's it's everyone from companies like New York Times Meredith in Conde nast to you know, other brands like WalMart, Wayfair overstock, all of those types of companies of work with us to to to get help acquire retain, a monetize their audience of within Email, newsletters, you know, with that said, I think one of the unique while not not that I think I know one of the unique things about us is that everything that we do in terms of delivering advertising marketing messages, and helping our customers really understand more about their audience is connected to the Email address. Right ORs, we refer to the Email. Hash which is a privacy compliant way of looking at Email addresses. Right. So when you think about targeting today on the web, everything revolves around the cookie, riot weather, first party or third party, cook everything revolves around a cookie, but for us, it's it's the Email address in when you think about that. Right. When you think about a user in their Email address, and the value that provides in terms of helping to identify people, right? It's your Email addresses pretty much, your your gateway your passport to the internet. There isn't much you can do on the internet without it. Ryan you use it to log in the social you use it to buy something you use it to sign up for for something. Right. You ended at it's yours too personal. You don't share it with anyone else in your Email address is what you really have had a, you know, or maintain I guess she should say for everything that you do on the internet. And so we think about. What's tied to that? And how personal is. And when you think about sort of Email environment, you have to be one hundred percent law in because the Email address is tied to us in individual. It's it's fraud free and people that sign up for Email, newsletters, usually a publisher our brands most engaged audience. Right. And so we really feel like we sit at that sort of intersection between advertising and marketing technology in really cool space where you know, the Email address we think is the sort of a future of digital advertising. Now for the as of coast, publishers have given much of that inventory over to companies such as Facebook as a result of paint, a pretty heavy price for not because of course, Facebook six revenue from us engagement and publishes don't actually own or control the distribution in those pay to play kind of muddles. So in response to realizing that might be taken. On H all bodies will go it just say that we're witnessing the renaissance of Email for publishers. But can you set the scene and tell me about the scale of the problem in an what you're saying that? Yeah. The the problem is a is a is a massive one from the standpoint of you know, if if for for publishers for brands to survive moving forward, they have to understand more and more about their audience. Right. And you're right. Unfortunately, a publisher's given away that information to Facebook to Google to other wall gardens of for a number of years. It was interesting that we are seeing here. Live in tent is more volunteers. Now coming back to us sort of waking up to the fact that you know, they need to figure out a first party audience strategy in a, you know, let's just call it a cookie less world, right? Because I think you know, with everything from IT p a two point oh to all the privacy rules and regulations to some of what a Google just recently announced that the cookie is going to slowly, but surely sort of diminish over time. And if you are a major publisher, right? You have to think about our ability to continue to grow audience, right? Not necessarily traffic traffic is important. But when I look at traffic, you know, you can come and go, that's traffic. But in audience is court, your business, your audience are most engaged users your audiences who you know, the most about so that you can make the best decisions for how you want to have conversations with them in in order to grill audience. Right Email still sits at the core of it for for all things that I just mentioned in in the in the last response to you. And so more more of a loser. Now trying to figure out how can they a leverage the power of Email, Email, newsletters, and and the Email address to grow their audience. So

That's pretty good son. I bet you'd be on your best behavior today. You know, what you'd think I would be on my best behavior because this is a very very very special episode of Conan O'Brien needs a friend. I've been pursuing my next guest for years years and years and years sounds threatening the New York Times referred to this man as the white whale to my hab, which means he'll end up killing me. He is considered by many many people to be one of the greatest biographers of all time for his crime breaking work on Robert Moses and his many books on Lyndon Johnson.

You know, the story that I've been trying to hunt you down to get an interview with you for years, and I don't think you even knew that.

I'm sure I have many listeners who are very familiar with your work. And I'm sure I also have many listeners who were very young. Who haven't read your work aren't familiar with your work, and I want to stop for just second and say for God's sake. Do yourself a favor. Sometimes I think people freeze up when they hear historical biography historic work. They think this is going to be dry. This is going to be homework, and what Robert Carro has done is. He has figured out a way to write history in a way where you read it, and you feel like you're reading a gripping novel all of it's true. He's a stickler for the facts. But it's so well written that your heart is in your mouth at times when you're reading these accounts you've written about a guy named Robert Moses who intrigue. D'you because you found out that he was probably the most powerful man in the history of New York, but he had never been elected to anything. Nobody really knew how he had this power. But this is the man that if you are in New York City, you cannot probably walk fifteen feet without running into something that Robert Caro built what Robert Carroll Bill, Robert. I'm sorry.

"He happens to be jewish i believe by but it but it's easy to to call people names because then if you call someone's name you don't have to deal with the philosophical arguments they're making caro's colleges today you're going to get in many schools a onesided education front fighting for the courses that probably doctorate in america american college students maybe i'm making a huge mistake here but i still believe that eventually if people are taught how to think they will figure it out and no matter no matter what sort of verbatim garbage they've been forced to you know just to give back to the professors to regurgitate to the professors in order to get there a minuses and b pluses i mike mike my professors in college were a great great men i mean hopefully women to women too i mean i have to unfortunately they passed on but they were very very good good professors where did you go to school what was your major funeral it was just it was just mortuary science focused i was in english major with a minor in secondary education ended up going to law school and i've ended up doing what i've done and i suspect my story.

"The problem with buying a car with a salvaged tie the good news is you get a great deal on the car and because it's either been rebuilt because it was totalled irs or flood caro's whatever new just get a great bargain on the car something really nasty beds happened to that car at some point that's where that title comes from as somebody's put it back together she won't get a great deal on it i mean like a great great great deal the that's a good there's a bad losers when you get right to sell it you're going to sell it somebody add a great deal because you can't give the dead gump thing why people are spooked by salvage title so i guess the only time it really makes since to do that as if you're going to drive that car all the way into the dirt so you know if you got a farm need a good farm truck and you're on describe it until the wheels completely literally fall off of it i mean the things in the backyard in its predictive flowers plan in it when you're done i mean it's done okay then a salvage title be a good thing because you're probably get a decent car or if somebody that knew what they were doing is putting it back together that's assuming they did some people do oh they put the cars bike together beautifully and religious nothing like there can be nothing wrong with it um but your problem shirts the resale it's just horrendous and so it was timing out pay me later when you're on the other thing is you don't have trouble selling it it's hard to sell um because it's just spokespeople that are scared of them uh it doesn't you know but again may or may not being really wrong with the car that really doesn't matter.
