Birding with Dr Meredith Williams
"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

Lewis Hamilton on How His Formula 1 Career Led Him to Collaborate With Tommy Hilfiger
"Welcome to inside fashion at this week. We're sitting down with a race car driver Lewis. Hamilton is a six time Formula One champion but he has also started collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger. I sat down with Louis the day before. The collection was launched at London fashion week to get his backstory to learn how he became one of the most successful Formula One drivers in history and the approach he used in his collaboration with Tommy who made a very special appearance towards the end of our conversation to talk a little bit about what he saw. So here's Lewis Hamilton. With special appearance from Tommy Hilfiger inside Fashion Lewis. Hamilton how are you? I'm great value. I'm good thanks for having me tomorrow. Big Day it is has been a huge build-up as so much work has gone into to have in the show here in London. Which is really important for me to have and You know I get to be involved in so many of the elements in for example. Choose London as the launch of the two thousand Twenty Spring Collection Spring Summer collection and bring wanting to really highlight the fact that I am British. Yeah even though I'm working with US brand and you know see. Tommy you see a lot of the American flag everywhere and I wanted to remember that. A collaborative Both and also there's just some so much culture here and style and great autism so it was very important me to bring you cool before we go in depth on the collection. I wanted to go further back. Because you know the hard work didn't start with this collection and it goes back many many years to bring you to the position where you can even contemplate doing something like this absolutely so. I never interviewed a race car driver before so educate me and little. How how. How does someone become a race car driver? How does that even happen So I mean we kind of stumbled across it in the sense that so I started racing when I was eight K. My parents with us to live with my dad on the weekends. My Dad was you know this kind of Awkward Guys I. What do I do this little kitten? You know like a lot. Dads are and the thing that I loved loved. 'cause so as left car is crazy about cars as a little boys are in yeah and So that tons of toy cars. I used to Had A little radio control car and the actual like the initial point was I was full and our next door neighbor from the one bedroom. Flat that we lived in in Hatfield He built models of boats and he had built this radio control car. He was driving in cocking on the road and he came over and join. Do you WanNa go and I was like yes about two and I remember driving this thing and I was really good remote control car. Everybody was really quick. Yeah 'cause a big one that believe for thousands four year old able to control this little car with a joystick controllers and so then he bought me one and we started racing four hours racing against people of our age. Who's young establish Over ten years and and I remember to watch the racetrack. You stand on the podium to look down upon it and to to go with the Kind of defense to the over. I had to stand on like three D. A. K. cases and racing. These guys who you know. Spend their hard earned in to raise these. Cause and unbeaten imagine how angry these look. These guys were Still four yards five years beaten. Us Am anyways my dad than was like Hayes head to Akron Coordination's clearly very great and I think he was talking to someone. That's why didn't try to go when I was five. I went to Spain with my dad and we came across a go kart track and that was the first time I drove a car and again that was natural so I thought my dad bought me one from an old newspaper. The back pages was V fifth hand yet villain by like five. Six families really bent and crooked and rusty and stuff. My Dad resprayed woods Stuff like diy still like being Hewlett was and then we entered some races and we one from the one the fresh race. And I loved it. Some I if you do you keep working out at school will do whatever. I can't keep racing. We WanNa First Championship when I was ten and the rest is history silent. Us Thirteen by full monty. Youngest EVER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. Is that one day. We Start Recruiting People. That time right but now they do so. I was the youngest ever to be signed. And also you know. This sport never been diverse. Yeah was gonNA say because you didn't come from like a privileged background. It's a very expensive sport. It really is. So what was that like for you? It was? It was really for me as a kid I was. I was having fun in A. Yeah we go to school in my weekend. I'm going to my friend's house devastated by Rhonda Right and I loved it so much am but my dad was really hot for my family. My Dad remortgaged had to remortgage house. God knows how many times He had four jobs at one stage in the early stages which sounds crazy because there was no future plan for us you know but it was just hoping that we love doing but it was getting more and more expensive How can I? How can I make money to pay for the tires this weekend? How can I keep the call going? Nowhere weekends wells like aside to do a race number desert. I'm I'm sorry. I've done the money this weekend. So He's been the the one of the most infamous stepmom. She's coming to a new relationship as a kid there and she gave up her life. Saving and belief and the commitment was just. It's so special to the real story is not the success that I've had that that people from working in a working class families can really relate to dance. Who Don't know what to do with his. You see people out there today. Support naked on the side of football pitches the same the same thing and there's not a lot of Jarvis data have that background so as the Honda to a lot of people to relate to. But that's the one. I'm trying to make sure that people know because we came from nothing you can do it with a lot of hard work and of course you've got to have fortune on the way in the sense of meat if I didn't meet the boss of the four one team a win of signed and without that signing I would have made it because we would add money. Have you seen cool runnings? Yeah Yeah of course. You know my favorite that took place in Calgary. Yes I grew up in. Calgary did yes. I was there for Olympic no way where the Jamaican bobsled team shown. Yeah Wow and I got two weeks off of school does those. I was in the opening ceremonies. Actually no way so I spent the whole and we were obsessed with that to make him pops team no way. Yeah the the W tops. 'cause I was I was like I don't know in one thousand nine seventy five thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I was thirteen years old but yeah I remember that team. Why Cool runnings? I'm just remember watching cool. Runnings Is My favorite movie and causes. So just the most relatable story that had as a kid so I always relate a lot my life to that movie casino. They arrive this rust bucket at the top of the hill. For the first time they put out and everyone everyone goes quiet and I always relate to light me. My Dad arriving you know would race track the race rapid he would say with trump's because of you know what we have these great close the 'cause shoved Shoved in the back of the boot of vodka and we be picking up on the floor and it looks doesn't look good and A lot of people looking us like what they doing here. You know because again. It wasn't a diverse group. Is it always been a white dominated sport however there was in in the early stages there are there were some other families are trying but they would have they run out of money but So a lot of that you know we just did our talking on the track as they did in the Post said they kept. They didn't win over the nitty. Did they narrowly people's Hopkins? Yeah they did. But you've you've gone on and you become you know without exaggeration. A living legend in your field six F one titles the first one at the age of twenty three youngest ever at the time. What what did you learn about achieving success at such a young age at such an elite level? What does it take? Yes you had some lock. You had clearly got a gift incredibly supportive home environment but at the end then again it comes down to your dedication and and then the focus on what you wanted. Yeah talk to me a little bit about that. It was really difficult out. Search the journey. I think people generally seem to own see the tip of the iceberg. Don't know if you've ever seen an iceberg unknown. How big is beneath the huge? Yeah and there's a picture I found that shows you the success one sees this little bit on the top underneath his world however is so you know. I'm people tune in today and see someone that's one times in the championships and 'em probably not fully aware of how it's taken me years Windows Eight. Danton pro to those twenty two and when I got two phone one so the build up to it. It's just not prepared. You prepare to race. Don't get any preparation tons of media training. You don't get prepare repression tons of what you know. No-one said this is what's going to happen when people start seeing on TV. And that because that's a real shock to the system and Am working no this when you work with a big station when his thousand people behind you working to make your decisions out on the track impact every single one of those you know so if you're selfish Choices and you make mistakes and crash. Everyone feels it. Sure there was a it was a lot of pressure but And again being that we came in every conversation so you the first year the first back from one driver. This never been here again. No diversity in it's only me my dad really people of Color in the in in this which is quite felt alone. A little bit in that sense But it was a great platform for us to do something great and
AI in Legal
"Hello welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. So what are they professions nations. That has been around forever at least as long as there have been laws. have been lawyers and you know regardless of what we might think about lawyers in the legal profession. It's part of what allows us as a society to operate under the rule of law. Right the thing about the legal profession is that it's dominated by ED humans and paper documents and of course any if you've been listening to our colleague Linda Today podcast. You know that when there's a lot of humans and a lot of paper there. There is a role for artificial intelligence. Oh there is so we want to spend some time today talking about how a I is changing augmenting the legal profession so as rod mentioned mentioned. You know there's a lot of paper that's involved with any legal case and you know people are looking for ways to make this more efficient to save on costs costs but also to save on time because it's a lot to go through all these documents you know laws can change and get updated and new case litigation can come out that that makes the interpretation of the law different and people need to stay on top of all of this and without technology it makes it very very difficult so when you think of the Law Profession Asian and of course there are so many different aspects of course there's the reams and reams of contracts contracts between businesses contracts between employees and then you have personal contracts financial contracts Lexi of insurance contracts. These are all legal documents right. Ninety nine point nine nine percent of them you know just our routine just send you a contract you sign it now. You're signed up for on my credit card. You know you've agreed to the terms of this insurance agreement you've bought a product from. Here's a proposal. Sign it right you know or could be those sorts of things that are maybe arguments commits in front of the court trial proceedings. That could be you know depositions. That could be discovery of documents especially if large cases and the thing about all these lawyers are not necessarily the lowest cost of profession. Right I mean for a good reason you know good lawyers spent a Lotta time going to law school. They have to basically certify themselves in the case of the bar and they have to continue to presents itself. They're very professional society. But a lot of these activities are not don't really require the experience of law school. It requires like okay. I need to go to this document and redact all these things go through this document and find all these clauses or like look through my millions of contracts and find the six contracts that reference. This thing right. That's supposedly the world of paralegals in junior law professionals and that's the area where artificial intelligence may take a real. Yeah and according to the law technology today they're saying that over one hundred thousand legal roles will be automated by AI systems by twenty thirty six. So that's a lot of roles that can be automated by automation and buy more intelligent automation as well. So of course you know we talk talk about our seven patterns a lot here at Kaga and something we refer to a lot in our. CPI training as well. So if you're interested in applying these things to your own industry you should basically look at the methodology and some of our training the long story short we have recognition patterns. We have as conversational systems. We have autonomous systems. We have hyper personalization and we have goal. Driven Systems have patterns and anomalies for finding anomalies. And we have predictive analytics and every single one of those patterns is actually applicable to the legal profession we have in the recognition recognition pattern the ability to scan through say video or images. Find something we have even within documents that it's able to identify what's on the page all right quickly. He classified documents for example right. And that's something. We actually see quite a bit one of our trainees. One of our classes talked about the fact that they are in the public defenders office and they have a need to basically just classified documents or categorize them really based on whether or not they should retain those documents some documents chain for several months or one year or seven years or they can be you know gotten rid of right away so an example that he gave was if somebody goes. I have cake in the break room. That email can be you you know discarded right away. It has nothing to do with anything but if it's a legal document like a will or something else that may need to be retained for seven years. Well is it really really a good use of time to have a lawyer who costs a lot of money. Be going through these emails being like. Oh this is about the K.. Goes is about someone's retirement party or can you have a system go and automatically automatically do that and then the ones that they're not sure of flag for human to review which will dramatically decrease the amount of time that humans are doing right looking through these documents. That's just just that one pattern recognition pattern or maybe even the conversational patterns. We'll get into in just a moment but you can look another pan. The autonomous pattern autonomous legal. What does that mean well? There's a lot of things. First and foremost you know The whole managing the legal professions. You can think of legal practice management. They're starting to use. Ai Systems to automatically track hours that are spent Danton different cases automatically spot patterns in the work hours and basically helped make lawyers more efficient and of course hopefully at the end of the day make better for their clients that they're not spending two hours hours on something you know of course and billing to our rate which I can guarantee you cheap and instead spending thirty minutes on something or fifteen or maybe just completely automated at all. Maybe it's hard just say you know of the legal. Profession starts using more of so called robotic process automation tools and process automation tools. Charge the time that that bought is working on something who knows the paper at a minimum hopefully cheaper but basically yeah legal bought has worked on it but it but this is part of the patterns and anomalies pattern as well spotting adding the mistakes looking at anomalies as to as to how the lawyers are performing their time so that way they can basically solve any invoicing mistakes timing issues shoes and the client has better visibility into what's happening there right because one thing that we talk about very frequently on this podcast is how fast computers can just go and turn through documents at a much faster rate than humans and also. They never tire. They never get fatigued. They can run twenty four seven so you know how more how much more proficient could be loft practices be especially if they're working on very large cases if they can have an autonomous system. Go through these documents and be able to catch things things you know. This could speed up months of discovery and months of legal time exactly so we are also seeing this idea of the conversational. Oh legal assistant right that way. A lot of people have have routine legal questions especially around things like you know their financial planning to legal planning the will or maybe even in aspects of the other things like you know trying to get a lawyer's opinion on aspects of divorce or of contract matters or of dealing with your neighbors or something you know you know there's lots of different applications and you don't need to spend you know an hour or two of a lawyer's rhyme answering these things so we're seeing. The idea of the frequently asked is questions. Yes making its way into the conversational legal robots yes. I'm feel like back in the day. You know. Sometimes little newspapers would have you could write in. And then yeah they they would say oh. This is my complaint with a neighbor. How do I do this or my trash isn't getting collected or you know little legal legal issues in a lawyer would go and write weekly pick a few and do that and I feel like now instead of that where the lawyer goes and picks two or three and writes about it now the majority of things can be answered and in real time just about so? Oh how do they go about doing this. And how do they make it cost efficient because to have an actual lawyer sitting behind this chat Bot and answering questions as they come in might not be a good use of time. I'm for that lawyer. But that doesn't mean that the firms till can't offer that service so we've started to see more intelligent. Ai Enabled Chat bots where they're doing more more than just answering an FAQ very general FAQ's that people can find on their site. They're starting to give. I don't know if it's exactly legal advice. But it's legal suggestions gestures and saying well look here or we've seen this in other cases or you know this is. This is something that you can look into
"danton" Discussed on Sports Criminals
"Frost faced legal issues of his own on August twenty. Second two thousand doesn't six thirty nine year old. David Frost was arrested in Ontario Canada. He was charged with twelve counts of sexual exploitation an and one count of assault against four men and three women. The charges stemmed from when Frost was coaching. The Quincy Hawks in nineteen ninety eighty six. Unfortunately the lead prosecutor was ill equipped to handle such a delicate case when the defense was able to point out. Inconsistencies Vinci's in the women's testimonies prosecution had no response on November Twenty Eighth Two Thousand Eight Frost was acquitted on all charges as calmness. Rosie demand of the Star wrote the judge expressed amazement. The prosecution hadn't called players parents sports psychologists and police investigators or Subpoenaed Cell Phone Records Frost as he had so many times in the past Dodge Justice by the time frost was acquitted. Mike was four years into his sense. However in March two thousand nine Mike was allowed to transfer to a Canadian prison in Kingston Ontario? Six months later Mike went before the parole board to plead his case case for early. Release during the parole hearing on September eleventh. Two thousand nine. The board asked Mike to describe why he had committed his crime. Back in two thousand and four. Nobody involved in the case could come to any reasonable conclusion. They all just knew he was guilty because he admitted he was. Finally Mike elaborated on the crime. He had stayed silent about for so many years but he claimed that the man he wanted dead wasn't David Frost. It was his father. Steve Jefferson Mike went on to recount his story that someone was after after him and that this belief was enhanced by the use of sleeping pills and stimulants. He claimed that an unnamed family member confirmed that Steve was was on his way to kill him. The idea that frost was the intended target was simply a misunderstanding. He told the parole board about his troubled and abusive the use of childhood that Steve would repeatedly beat him if he struggled with hockey and that his mother constantly smelled of marijuana. When frost entered? Mike's life it was only natural for Mike to turn to him as a protector. Why would he want to kill the man who saved him from his parents abuse? Given that Mike never named his target in his original plea agreement. The sudden change didn't really affect the Parole Board's decision by Convin- good prisoner and Dan was seen as low risk and since he planned on going to school and attempting hockey comeback. The board felt that Mike had turned over a new leaf so so mike was granted parole. He was once again a free man. Mike kept his word in January. Two thousand ten then. He began classes at Saint. Mary's University in Halifax Nova Scotia and immediately joined the men's hockey team in his first year. Back on the ice is Mike helped lead the saint. Mary's Huskies to collegiate championship and was named an academic all Canadian. His good grades after two College Seasons Seasons Mike signed a deal with I. F K Woomera in Sweden. It wasn't the NHL but it was still a chance to play professionally again. It wasn't isn't long until Mike was back in the headlines but this time it wasn't for trying to take a life it was for saving one during the third period of a game in September. Two thousand eleven. Mike's Teammate Marcus. Banks and it is head on the ice and began to convulse fearing during that Marcus could choke on his tongue and die. Mike stuck his fingers in the Marcus mouth. He was able to get Marcus Tom out of the way so he could breathe breathe. Normally Marcus was rushed to a hospital and made a full recovery. Saving Marcus's life was the highlight of Mike's ext time in Sweden during the offseason. Mike signed with a team in the Austrian Hockey League for the next six years. He bounced around different European Teams News in two thousand sixteen. He managed to find his way back to Canada where he played with the Rivi Air.

Children is earning a master's at the University of New Brunswick fittingly in sports psychology and he was was recently named the head. Coach of the Pictorial County. Crushers a junior team in Nova Scotia. It seems as if the troubled young star managed to turn his life around and meanwhile as Mike spent the two thousand ten's changing his life and owning up to his crime. David Frost seems to have fallen. Went into relative obscurity after being acquitted in two thousand nine frost eventually moved to Laguna Niguel California. Once there he went under the name Jim McCauley and worked as a health consultant for a gym in two thousand thirteen after numerous complaints by neighbors the gym removed and frost followed. That appears to be the last. We've heard of David Frost for now as for my experience as of two two thousand twelve. They still had no contact with their son. His mother sue sent letters to Mike while he was in prison. He didn't read a single one instead he tore tore them up and sent them back. Mike's Father Steve. Jefferson hates frost for what he did to his family. His biggest regret is allowing defrost to take hold of Mike and for being so blind to the years of manipulation years after his bombshell Parole Roll Board hearing claim Mike has maintained that Steve Jefferson was the real target all along not David Frost in an interview with Canadian Organization Shen Jagged Journey in November two thousand eighteen. Mike still claimed that his upbringing was abusively. Violent specifically coming from Steve and Mike Still refused to name frost as hits intended. Target despite Mike's Denials all the evidence points to Frost Mike hadn't hadn't spoken to his family in years and the Jeffersons lived in a completely different country at the time of the hit on top of that the Strip club bouncer. Ronnie Jones was Adamant that the picture Mike showed him was of frost. There is one theory that seems to explain why Mike would want to kill Hill is mentor. Sue Jefferson told Toronto Sun Reporter. Steve Simmons that she believes it was an attempt to free himself from frosts control troll after being traded to Saint Louis Mike was finally fitting in with the team unlike in New Jersey. Mike seemed to have finally found his home. Tom Unfortunately his tight relationship with Frost made it impossible for Mike to fully embrace this new life. It's possible that he believed but the only way to completely sever ties with Frost plus to kill him but the question still remains. Why did Mike Want want frost dead? Only Mike knows and he refuses to talk and probably never will. Thanks again for listening to sports criminals among the many sources we found. Steve Simmons the loss dream.

Jones Park the car the designated meeting point with the FBI Katie Wolfe. Meyer was frantic. Well she had no idea who the man man claiming to be. Mike's dad was she thought he sort of looked like frost but wasn't sure it was him as Katie panicked. Jones told older that he was going to go back to the apartment and finish the job but Katie begged him to stay in the car with her and wait from might call them with further instructions. US Jones sat back and thought about it. Because Katie was so scared staying in the car meant that she could potentially reveal more incriminating manege information but instead Katie suddenly went quiet much to Jones annoyance. He decided he'd wait for one of two things. Mike's call or the F. B. I.'s arrival the F. B. I. came first less than ten minutes after parking the car was surrounded by police and FBI. Katie didn't put up any resistance. She was taken into a squad. Car and charged with conspiracy commit murder Jones was arrested alongside Katie though it was all just for show with the investigation still ongoing it was important not to blow his cover. The FBI went to Mike's Apartment to question frost. They wanted to know if frost was. Actually the contract killer. Mike believed was after him. Frost had no idea what the F. B. I was talking about. Why would a hit man? Come after Mike. It was ludicrous. The FBI Agent Short Short Frost. It wasn't ludicrous fact. Mike had ordered a hit on him as a preemptive strike. Frost laughed but then the agent took him into Mike's Bedroom and showed him the open to save with three thousand dollars. Frost finally realized what he was being. Polled was true. He needed to talk to Mike immediately. Back in San Jose the Saint Louis Blues had just fallen to the sharks three to one and were eliminated from the playoffs. As Mike's Teammates consoled each other he rushed to his phone still no news from Jones or Katie as he made his way to the locker room. MICS phone finally rang. His eyes widened when he saw the caller ID. It was frost. Mike Nervously answered frost. Hold Mike that the F. B. I. had just arrested two people sent to kill him and that he knew Mike was behind it bursting into tears. Mike denied the accusation he began to ramble about how he hadn't been thinking thinking straight and that he even had suicidal thoughts. It's tough to tell whether Mike was lying. The frost bearing his soul or a mixture of bose. Mike's head was swirling a mile a minute. His team season had just ended and his plan to kill frost had failed his world was crashing down around him. He needed to know what Jones knew when he got off the phone with Frost he frantically called the undercover police dispatcher. Mike still had no idea that Jones with in with the FBI. It never occurred to him. How strange it was that Jones on suicide? Theoretically under arrest was still allowed to use his cellphone Mike was distraught. He told Jones that the FBI were at his apartment talking talking with a man who should be dead still completely unaware that Jones was in on the sting. Mike told him to deny that they knew each other. And and after a few minutes of hysterical rambling Mike Abruptly Hung Up. It was the last time they would talk. As April fifteenth turned into the sixteenth the Saint Louis Blues Slowly made their way back to their hotel rooms coming to terms with the fact their season just just ended. It was now back to the drawing board. Perhaps next year would be the year but Mike didn't have time to dwell on hockey realizing leising that the walls had closed on him. He decided to ditch his teammates and fly back to Saint Louis alone what he planned to do when he got there is anyone's I guess. Before he left the hotel he left several messages on Katie. Wolfe Meyer's phone. He told her to deny that he and Jones I had ever met the also wanted her to downplay how many times she and Mike had actually hung out at the end of the last message. He told her to be strong. They would get through this in the early hours of Friday April sixteenth. Mike made his way to the airport. One can only imagine what was going through his head as he waited for his flight. Perhaps he was trying to formulate a plan on how to handle the FBI. Maybe he considered reaching out to frost and squaring things with him or maybe he thought about packing his things and disappearing. Whatever his plans were her? It didn't matter as he prepared to board the plane. Mike was surrounded by several. FBI agents in front of everyone at the airport. The twenty-three-year-old rising hockey star was arrested for conspiracy to commit murder the life and career that he had spent over a decade fighting four was over coming up. Mike faces the consequences of his actions while frost's costs own deep-seated secrets are revealed now back to the story on the morning of April sixteenth. Two thousand four the the FBI arrested twenty three year old hockey player. Mike Danton for conspiracy to commit murder over the course of the past month. Mike had tried ride and failed to get his agent and mentor. David Frost Kill upon his arrest. Mike was sent to the Santa Clara County Department of Correction before being taken back to Saint Louis during his time in Santa Clara. Mike had Multiple Phone calls with Frost. According to Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun over the first twelve days Danton spent in Santa Clara County jail. There were seventy nine phone calls between him and the man he apparently wanted dead the FBI had approximately a thousand minutes of conversation on tape. The nature of these conversations stations varied wildly in almost anything pertaining to why Mike may have wanted. Frost dead was in Code But the way Mike and Frost spoke spoke to one another indicated. The Control Frost had over his protege at the end of each conversation. Frost forced Mike to Proclaim claimed his love for him. But in the recordings Mike sounded as if he was under pressure to comply almost immediately. After the arrest rumors began to swirl that the hit on frost was the result of a lover's co world while some people suspected that they had secretly been sexual partners for years to This Day both Mike and Frost nine any sexual relationship though. Mike does admit that their relationship wasn't into normal. Another theory was that Mike was Trying to get rid of frost over money. As we mentioned earlier Mike did tell runny Jones that he wanted to kill frost because of a financial dispute though we never told Ronnie what the some was according to Toronto Sun. Reporter Steve Simmons. Mike Owed Frost twenty five thousand dollars most likely in agent fees however the jail phone calls debunked the money dispute as has a motive in coded language. Frost repeatedly asked if Mike mentioned that. Twenty five thousand dollar figure to anyone. Mike denied that he told anyone runabout. Owing frost any money of course might could have been lying but he was making five hundred thousand dollars a year on that salary. Twenty five thousand dollars isn't such a large sum that it's worth killing someone over even for Mike Danton. As the calls continued. It became clear you were in clear that frost was still exerting power over Mike. As Mike's Day in court neared frost use that power to convince Mike Mike to perjure himself. Frost encourage Mike to play up his emotional and mental instability to a doctor. That Way Mike could go for an insanity plea however the F. B. I.. Agents listening to their conversations managed to thwart this plan before. Mike got into more trouble than he was already. And as spring turned to summer many hockey fans clung to their newspapers. For any new SORTA details. They hoped that one of the many theories about why Mike had tried to have frost killed would prove to be true however they were left with disappointment on July sixteenth two thousand four three months after he was arrested. Mike pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder United States states versus Michael Sage Danton ended not with a bang but with a whimper in his plea agreement all he did was admitted to the charge. He didn't explain why he did it. Or even who. His target was four months later. Mike was Sentenced to seven and a half years in federal prison while he toiled away behind bars..

Danton the troubled Canadian hockey player who attempted to hire a Hitman to kill his own agent. David Frost last tweak. We explored the battle between Mike His Family and David Frost and this week. We'll dive into Mike Scheme to try and get his agent mentor killed in two thousand nineteen year old. Mike Danton was drafted in the fifth round by the New Jersey devils after for more than a decade of dedicating his life to hockey. Mike had finally made it to the pros but his relationship with the devils didn't go the way either side had hoped the devils wanted to groom Mike into a star but that meant beginning his career at their affiliate minor team the Albany River Rats. Mike didn't take kindly only to this perceived slight his agent and longtime mentor David. Frost hit convinced him that he was going to be one of the greats and the greats didn't play in the minors with Frost manipulating Mike Behind the scenes. It was only a matter of time before Mike and the devils parted ways in June. Two thousand three three. Mike got what he wanted in was traded to the Saint Louis Blues once he arrived in Saint. Louis it seemed like Mike had turned things around instead of butting cutting heads with a front office distancing himself from his teammates. Mike was becoming part of the team but none of his fellow blues realized that Mike was in the midst midst of a troubling internal battle by the time he got to saint. Louis a decade of hockey had taken a toll on his body in order to manage the pain. He had become addicted to painkillers. Sleeping Pills and alcohol. This mixture combined with the pressure to succeed it toward his mental state. Shortly after his arrival in Saint Louis He became paranoid that someone was out to kill him once. This idea took root in. Mike's thanks head. It didn't let go as the blues. made it to the two thousand four play offs. The thought that a hit had been put on him completely took over. Mike's mind mind. If he was going to stay alive he would have to strike first and he knew just the man for the job in the days leading up to Mike's First NHL playoff game he met with a Strip club. Bouncer named Ronnie Jones. Mike was a frequent customer at the club. Presumably he had seen Ronnie handle his fair share of tough guys but he wanted Rani to do much more than rough someone up in exchange for ten thousand dollars. Mike Wanted Rani to commit murder and the picture he showed. Ronnie of his intended target was another than David Frost but Mike didn't say anything about frost trying to kill him instead. He told Ronnie that he wanted sounded. Frost killed because of a money dispute. He promised it would be a simple job ever since Mike joined the NHL Frost occasionally slept over at his his apartment. In spring. Two Thousand Four Frost was staying with him in Saint. Louis there would be plenty of time for Ronnie to strike before Frost left town but for Ronnie Jones. It didn't matter what the reasoning was or how much Mike was willing to pay him. He may have been tough but he wasn't a killer but no matter how many times Ronnie told him he wasn't interested. Mike wasn't ready to take no for an answer in the meantime however there was still hockey to play on April eighth. Two thousand four Mike. And the St. Louis Blues traveled to San Jose and faced off against the sharks in the opening round of the Western Conference Quarterfinals despite the blues best effort the sharks one in ot one to nothing. The sharks took game two two nights later later three to one. Mike played for less than ten minutes in both games but even if he had gotten more ice time he probably wouldn't have made a difference all Mike Mike could think about was the fact that someone could kill him at any moment he needed Ronnie Jones to complete the hit against frost as soon as possible even without without Mike at his best the blue still felt they were in the series with the next two games in Saint Louis. They had a good chance of evening. It up but while the the rest of his team was focused on the upcoming game. Three Mike was Constantly Pasturing Ronnie. He believed the bouncer would eventually change his tune on the afternoon of April Eleventh Easter Sunday. Mike called Ronnie again after a couple of rings. He heard Ronnie's voicemail male recording in the message he left. Mike desperately asked how he was doing with the hit. He stressed that frost would be a sitting duck. Staying at Mike's Department glued to the television Mike then gave Ronnie his hockey schedule and the addressed his apartment. Eighteen hundred South Brentwood Boulevard hard apartment. Thirteen eighty two. Ronnie never called Mike back the next night. The Blues hosted the sharks for game three read. It was Mike's First Playoff home game. However the coach wasn't going to play Mike just for sentiment's sake on that night he only got a little over five minutes of ice time and it looked like the team didn't need him behind a pair of Mike Cylinder Goals Saint Louis one four two one? The series was now two Huda Won. The Blues still had a chance but Mike didn't share his teammates excitement. It wasn't a lack of playing time. That bothered him the most though it was the fact that when he got Home David Frost was still alive. Going into game four on April Thirteenth Mike was was agitated over the radio. Silence from Ronnie Jones as gametime approached. Mike dressed and ready to play looked at himself in the mirror. What he saw was a man marked for death? Doom Soul Mike's Trance was broken. His coach yelled for him to get to the bench deep breath. Mike put on his helmet and headed the rink. Whose time the play hockey back in Saint Louis David Frost sat in? Mike's Mike's apartment watching the game on TV when the sharks scored six minutes into the game.

He made Mike his Special Project. Project invested his time and effort into turning the young man into a hockey star now he was in his first playoff series.

Better pass cleaner and his accuracy improved and for Mike a rejuvenated even added sense of worth enjoy entered him before the start of the season. But it wasn't just MIC skills that frost transformed almost immediately. He began to wedge himself between Mike and his family during an early season game in Buffalo. Mike crashed into the boards. Hard hard for close to thirty minutes. Mike laid on the ice crying out. His back was in pain. After being taken into the locker rooms mike was joined joined by his distraught. Father in hockey parents are not allowed in the locker room. Only players and coaches Steve was committing a grave sin suddenly frost came barreling in. He yelled at Steve Demanding to know why he was in the locker room in. Its for Mike. He wanted to know why he was in the locker for room and not with his team. He demanded that Mike put his helmet on and get back on the ice. Mike obeyed his coaches orders. Steve was shocked but said nothing. He watched Mike leave even though he was in pain as Steve Jefferson tells Steve Simmons in the loss dream. I gave him that power over my son. I let him decide. I got caught up in the game. It was one of the first moves. Frost made take control of the young hockey prospect. Mike and Steve gave in wholeheartedly. They both believed that frost would be Mike Ticket to the NHL unbeknownst to them the consequences of this choice would have a tragic effect coming up. Mike's Junior hockey career takes takes off thanks to frost but at the cost of his family now back to the story nineteen ninety-three twelve year old. Mike Danton hinton still going by the last name. Jefferson was finally given permission by his father Steve to play for controversial coach. David Frost almost immediately really upon joining frosts Toronto young nationals. Mike was filled with a renewed motivation with an alternate captain. Title Sewn Onto His Jersey He. It was no longer weeping in his father's arms over the lack of time on the ice specific details. About Mike's time on the young nationals are scarce hairspray but we do know that once frost became his coach his skills improved dementia in Mike Frost Kid who needed guidance and attention. He quickly came to regard Mike like a son in fact not long after he became. Mike's Coach Frost moved with his wife and young daughters. Just down on the street from Jefferson's before long Mike was a constant fixture in their home in frost. Mike saw a father figure and protector her and he needed protection. Mike claims that Steve repeatedly hit him his younger brother Tom and their mothers. Su He says Steve Steve was an angry man and when he drank he was even angrier and violent in a two thousand eleven. ESPN interview. Mike insinuate anyway that his father sexually abused him when he was young. Steve Jefferson maintains that everything Mike says is false. While he doesn't deny that he drank too much and that he would get on my case if he played poorly he vehemently denies ever striking Mike or Sexually abusing him. I'm Steve Blames Frost for much of the verbal abuse. He gave Mike. He claims that if Mike had a bad game frost would tell Steve to give his son Tong. Lashing on the car. Ride home believing that frost had Mike's best interest at heart. Steve followed his advice at the next practice. Frost would would ask Mike if he had gotten a dressing-down from his father after the previous game Mike Marvel that how is coach. Knew exactly what was happening behind. Closed Doors No one realized that David Frost was actually manipulating. The whole family as Mike Got Older frosts presence and influence Lewinsky became even more powerful and soon Mike Was Turning to frost for help in more than just hockey when Mike was Thirteen. He was arrested for shoplifting. Instead of calling his parents from his jail cell he called his coach. When Steve found out he told Mike he was getting kicked out of the House? Does that didn't bother Mike do much because he could just go down the street two frosts Taus according to Toronto Sun reporter Steve Simmons. This became became a pattern in the Jefferson House. Mike and Steve would get into heated arguments and then Mike would run to frost often staying there overnight frost. Ross with throw gas onto the fire by badmouthing Mike's Parents has all of this was going on behind the scenes the Toronto oh no young nationals were dominating on the ice in nineteen ninety six. They won the all Ontario Bantam Championship but whatever momentum a mental Mike and his teammates may have had coming out of the season quickly disappeared on September Twenty Sixth Nineteen Ninety six twenty nine year old. Well David Frost was indefinitely. Suspended from coaching. The Metropolitan Toronto Hockey League ended appeared to be self sabotage going into the next season. The team's top players like Mike and Sheldon Keefe were on the verge of turning sixteen once they did they would move onto the next next level of junior hockey and move on to new teams instead of losing his boys one by one. Frost wanted to make sure he kept them together in order to do so David. Frost allegedly forged the signature of the young nats general manager to release the older players from the team all at once since they were no longer on the Young Nats Frost was able to shop them as a group two teams at the next level a frost and nine that he forged forged the signature. But that didn't matter. He was indefinitely suspended as coach and Mike was no longer a young nat if Mike and the parents really wanted to. They could've found a new team on their own. But Frost was so rooted in a Mike's life that he went wherever the coach told him to go. First Stop was with the Bramley blues however that stint lasted less than ten gains no matter because frost was able to find a new home Toronto about halfway between Toronto and Ottawa. Mike in Brampton boys as they became known joined the the newly created Quincy Hawks before the Brampton boys arrived the Hawks one in four however once Mike and the others joined the team went on an eleven game win streak. It wasn't just because Mike and the hawks were better players. It was because the league they were now in was an outlaw league. Outlaw Leagues are basically basically any league that runs outside of the rules established by Hockey Canada. Basically teams can recruit outside of town jurisdictions charge parents prince exorbitant fees and leagues can make up rules as they go along even though the hockey basics are still enforced. An outlaw league is essentially the Wild West for frost. It meant open season for his players. Mike in the Brampton boys could play as rough and tough as they wanted knowing. There wouldn't be any kind kind of disciplinary action. Fights were constant with the Quincy Hawks both amongst players and in the stands in the thirty five Games Mike played he acquired two hundred eighty one penalty minutes to put that into perspective. Hockey's greatest enforcer. Dave Schultz holds the record for most penalty. Eighteen minutes in a single season at four hundred. Seventy two and that was over the course of seventy six games but if Mike and his team played rough it's because frost told them to and on the bench. Frost was rough with his team as well during the ninety six ninety seven in playoffs. Frost had grown frustrated with Mike's Hotel. Room Mate Darrell. Tiburon Frost anger boiled over and he punched the twenty year old. Tiburon the jaw right in front of a couple of off duty. Police Officers Frost was arrested and charged with assault ultimately though he made a deal deal with the authorities and avoid jail time on despite avoiding any serious legal punishment the punch force the League to Suspend Frost from coaching in a remarkable show of solidarity more the power he had over the kids. The Brampton Boys Mike included through the rest of their games in protest and and were quickly eliminated from the playoffs. Mike's time Endesa Rondo was over but Mike didn't see this divorce as a setback. His loyalty wasn't to a team. It was to frost in fact. He trusted his coach even more than his parent. When it came time for Mike to pick an agent he sought out frost for guidance? Instead of Steve and sue in the end he chose Mike Gillis to represent him as his career progressed in nineteen eighteen. Ninety seven at the age of Sixteen Mike Jefferson was drafted by Sarnia sting in the Ontario Hockey League consisting of players between the ages of sixteen and Twenty one the Oh l. is seen as one of the best junior leagues for amateurs hoping to make it into the NHL.

Find a new team after a successful tryout. Mike entered the Metropolitan Toronto Hockey q league where he played for the Toronto Red Wings but upon joining the team Mike and his family discovered the dark side of Youth Ice Hockey. Mike loved playing hockey but in order to play he had to get on the Ice Steve Recalls might coming home from games in tears because he was hardly playing. Mike didn't understand why he was putting in so much effort practice. Just a sit on the bench. Mike wasn't the problem it was his parents. Checkbook like many youth programs hockey requires boosters or donations that allow team to operate for the Jeffersons. The money was a struggle. And if they weren't able to pay Mike Wasn't going to play and but when he did play young Mike was a force to be reckoned and with and soon his abilities transcended his family's financial limitations in the summer of nineteen ninety. When Mike Mike was nine he was selected to join the red wings? Summer All star team. This honor was a highlight after years of hard work but the consequences says of Mike joining the All star team would be drastic because during a game. Against the vaunted Brampton all stars Mike caught the eye of the opponent's head head coach twenty-three-year-old David Frost by the time their paths crossed. Frost had already built up something of an unsavory reputation in the hockey community. He was brash. Rude and intimidating. He had a hard time keeping a coaching job down because he liked to bend the rules as far as he could yet frost walked around with swagger and intimidation that instilled confidence in his players. His coaching methods were unquestionable. It was well known that his teams engaged in more fighting than average but at the end of the day his players one despite his boorish Risk Behavior Frost was a hockey savant when frost laid eyes on Mike during that summer tournament he saw a wildly undisciplined player with raw raw passion and talent. Frost loved it. He immediately tried to recruit Mike for a new team. He was getting ready to coach the Toronto Young Young Nationals but Steve Jefferson had reservations. Sure Mike wasn't getting a ton of playing time with the red wings but they were the best team in the league. Why leave a good situation? But Frost was relentless. He even promised to make Mike the team captain still. Steve wouldn't budge. However as the next couple of seasons went on both Mike and his father grew frustrated with the lack of ice time even though the team was winning Mike? Mike Wasn't contributing and for Mike. It was hindering his ability to develop into an NHL worthy talent finally in Nineteen ninety-three. Steve let twelve year old. Mike Join Frost's young nationals. Unfortunately Frost had already recruited. Mike's Longtime Friend Sheldon Keefe and made him the captain but he would make Mike the Alternate. It was obvious to the Jeffersons that frost didn't care about donations or youth league politics politics. He seemed genuinely interested in developing.
Sante Kimes: Mother, Murderer, and Criminal Mastermind
"Is is the story of the original helicopter mother sean take times and her son kenny holy shit i'm about to tell you a story that i got an jay did the research urge for me i got sources from vanity fair article from two thousand by a writer named susanna andrews called sean times mother murderer and criminal masterminds as well as wikipedia murder pedia and sean taes LA times obituary i also last night watched this made for TV movie like mother like son the a strange story of sean kennedy times it's on youtube it's so good at starring mary tyler moore sean times she's amazing she play they like the quintessential like this is the type of person we're talking about like the quintessential mary tyler moore she like out of the box she's out of the box this is not the mary the MTA AMU thought you know she's a she's a schemer and con artist and a weirdly sexual with everybody and it's very uncomfortable to watch our hero mary tyler moore be the key such a villain expressed jean stapleton is in it who if you if you aren't familiar is a great actress she was is it all in the family i stephen yes that's how she's very well know but she is a an amazing actress when you when you see her in another part you're like oh my god she's so good very different and then and gabriel olds plays kenny times and i think he is from a soap opera but he is great so anyway and that made for TV movie was based on the book the mother the sun and the socialite socialite by adrian hill so there's lots of things if the story interests you get down and dirty details in lots of ways so let me let me get into it we will start with a woman irene silverman so irene she's a retired ballerina she was in the new york city ballet accompany member but she was also an elite socialite and she lived with her husband multimillionaire mortgage broker sam silverman in an extravagant seven million dollar townhouse on east sixty fifth street in manhattan seven million seven million in the seventies oh my god yeah and so so she is an extrovert she throws parties all the time she's she's a true social fun yeah right having money she's always entertaining guests has tons of friends canopies everywhere pays can pay an canopy it's even that can the pay can i pay existence so when her husband sam passes away in one thousand nine hundred eighty irene decides that she's going to take their humongous townhouse and and turn it into like an apartment building into basically luxury apartments so on average the rents of these individual apartments go for about six thousand dollars hours a month which in today's money would be seventeen thousand five hundred dollars or an apartment for an apartment in on east sixty sixty fifth street manhattan all right write nana's so her tenants are very impressive and include such luminaries luminaries as the marquis and marchioness of northampton you know i'm reading a phonetic spelling of both of those martian of north hampton danton marcia marcia s north hampton not a martian take me to your leader day-lewis and chaka khan i would together together we don't start gossip but yes they were deeply in love with those with that cast list i'd i pay up to eighteen thousand dollars a month to live there he managed to get a camera installed so i can watch your go downstairs to get your mail and their chaka khan like hey girl what's up you know like thank you wanna go out partying let's party so okay we're going to skip ahead about twenty years after she's established he's beautiful luxury apartments now irene is eighty two years sold on june fourteenth nineteen ninety eight a young businessman from palm beach named manny garren arrives at irene's home asking if he can rent one of his apartments he is traditionally good looking like lou diamond phillips special something you know everybody has different tastes we talk talk about people being good looking at beautiful time but who knows what people like you don't get a fucking say in it that's right traditionally good-looking means if someone drew a picture that's what a good looking person look like right look hugh grant traditionally good luck traditionally good-looking right but there's lots of people who are good looking dapper eh anyhow self esteem he's good looking traditionally well-spoken very friendly very charming i'm very smooth he tells iran he was referred by a mutual friend she recognizes the name oh you know it's all great or the marchioness from it's a yeah it's the marchioness us or the marquess unfortunately manny doesn't have any ID on him can't remember his social security number and the only he doesn't have any other references but he promises he's going to get them to irene the next day and then he gives her six grand in cash for his first month's rent so ordinarily irene there's actually very careful about stuff like this but because they have mutual friend and because he's paying in cash and probably because he's traditionally good-looking incredibly charming she allows him to move in the day of day of fact that okay everyone will and also well ninety eight early days of the internet yeah that's ten and eighty two year old woman wouldn't real absolutely it was all there at our fingertips okay so over the course of the next three weeks manny goes from being a charming suave a businessman type to a creepy weirdo he never turns over the proper ID or references he will not allow irene's maids into the unit to clean which goes along with your six thousand dollar rent ready yeah kind of like hotel he always hides his face from the security camera in irene's lobby show very acorn shell and he always has strange guests in his apartment and including an older woman who seems to be there all the time john chaka khan shocker gone she would shock would never go down she knows creeps when she sees him right now in the mary tyler moore movie that i watched watched she tells when the maid comes she tells her that she is manny's assistant and is very rude to the man so she doesn't make any friends so so basically after the first week irene decide she's gonna ask manny to leave she's like you had your you had your month enough of this he flatly refuses flabby creepy can you imagine that traditionally handsome i am flatly refusing something then you're just like well i guess this is the new reality yeah because the the hawk doesn't want to right well here's what irene does 'cause she didn't take any shit she cuts off his phone line thinking that's going to get him out of there and she begins eviction shen proceedings so she's immediately kicking yourself for being nice yeah which is what happened always a mistake so on the evening of saturday july fourth nineteen ninety eight i arena has friends over 'cause it's fourth of july and they also have noticed manny's strange behavior she irene explains the whole situation and her friends are very concerned and they say you know like do you need help what he wants to do she says that she can handle it they know she's tough as his nails so you know everybody feels okay about it the next morning july fifth nineteen ninety eight irene asks one of her maids if she would run some errands for her and when the made gets back from running those errands she can't find irena anywhere in the house from the made immediately contact irene's business manager who then decides to contact like the police and when the police searched the home they don't find any signs of disturbance there's no blood inside the struggled indicate that there was violence or or an incident of any kind so they start questioning irene's friends and the tenants but manny garin is nowhere to be found and when they run a name check on on that one new mysterious tenant the name manny garin is fake so suddenly the mystery tenant is now possible suspect in iran's disappearance it just so happens that on that same night july fifth a mother and son by the name of sean taylor and kenneth times are arrested in front of the manhattan hilton holton for stealing a lincoln towncar from a dealership in cedar city utah wow yes they finally tracked them down and they get arrested so when a detective who was on the scene for the silverman case sees the story of the crimes arrest on the news he sees kenneth and says that looks looks exactly like the description of manny garin and handsome hey that guy's traditionally handsome in a way that bores me but that but then i also immediately immediately trust for reasons i can't explain so he puts it together that they are one in the same person so on july seventh nineteen ninety eight the NYPD have shontayne kenneth times properly identified and in custody and that's when they discovered that the mother and son are being tracked by the FBI as suspects for a slew of crimes across across the nation including arson fraud and murder okay so now we'll go back we'll talk a little bit about sean times she was born sandra louise sing in oklahoma city on july twenty fourth nineteen thirty four she grows up in nevada with her parents mary van horn and mahendra promising and there's almost nothing known about her childhood factually they believe that her birth certificate was forged forged so her exact origins and even date of birth are they're not sure creepy about it and the funny thing is is mary tyler moore playing sean take himes all she talks about how much she hates getting older and aging it's it's pretty funny so it would make sense that the first thing she does erase her birth sir

"This is hidden brain. I'm Shankar Ray danton let's take a moment to go back in time. For the vast majority of human history. We lived in small groups of around fifty people everyone knew everybody if you told a lie, stole someone's dinner, didn't defend the group against its enemies. There was no way to disappear into the crowd. Everyone knew you and you would get punished. But in the last twelve thousand years or so human groups began to expand from a few dozen to more than a thousand. And now it wasn't so easy to punish the cheaters and free riders. So we needed something. Big vast an epic force that could see what everyone was doing and enforce the rules since individual people could no longer police gigantic groups the policing had to be done by a force. That was stupid human that force. According to psychologist as Sharif was the modern idea of a punitive, God, the kind that many preachers warned can send you to hell. Place. It is a place that existed before you were ever born did is going to be there. And there's nothing you can do to change that one bit whatsoever. Team says the many religions we see around us today emerged in different societies at different times as mechanisms to solve problems of trust. And cooperation doesn't make any difference. If the churches to them stop preaching on hail, if the preachers don't preach on hail. It is still a place that you must deal with one day. So the pitcher painted from Zime is fascinating picture that religion has all these different effects on people that has an effect on how we trust one another how generous towards one another sometimes we're generous when we reminded over legitimacy when we're reminded of the divine. It makes a difference whether the gods we believe in our benevolent gods are angry gods. It's also the case that maybe some religions flourish and thrive in a certain moment or in a certain ecosystem. But then wither and fail away in another ecosystem. And it seems to be all of these different things are pointing to the seem fundamental theory. Which is that you're looking at religion as an evolutionary phenomena, and you're trying to understand how it can work in one context how we can fail. Another context. How you can study it almost as a living organism. Yes. I think that's exactly right. I think that the application of evolutionary theory has really revolutionized our understanding of the origins and functions of religion now in evolutionary theory, one of the. The most exciting developments is extending the Darwinian logic of selection of organisms based on how well they fit their environment to cultural ideas as well and cultural groups as well. And this is what's called cultural evolution cultural evolutionary theory. It's also called dual inheritance there. The reason it's called dual inheritance theory is because unlike most other animals humans come into the world with not just a genetic inheritance from the parents, but an entire line of cultural ideas that get passed down to them as well. And for about one hundred thousand years, we have been a necessarily cultural species, we've not been able to survive without the cultural knowledge that we inherit and so a good example of this fire. That's a cultural idea if we didn't have that we will not be able to survive because our bodies are now doubted to needing fire to predigested that cook our food. And so the idea is that religion is one of these cultural ideas that. Similarly, serves these functional roles in our lives and has done for at least ten thousand years. So what that means is that you can understand religions as they are today. Today's major religions is bearing the legacy of thousands of years of trial and error and selection. So that what current religions are made up of their made up of those things because those served social functions in the past they contributed to the societies that they were attached to surviving. You can see these patterns the historical record, for example. Ancient humans worshiped gods who could prevent natural disasters. But as the needs of societies changed their gods changed to let us pray as people build cities and civilizations that were more resilient new kinds of God's welcome to the prayer to do well in school with different powers in much and the requests people made of them changed as well.

This family meeting is taking place in a kindergarten classroom in rural part of eastern Iowa. Rachel the teacher and the lesson. She wants to share is run that could have a lasting impact on her students. The story is set on an island on the island lid, three quarrelsome frogs named Milton river and Lydia day quarreled. From dawn to dusk. The pine yell Milton. The water is mine Lord. The island shouted river. The earth is nine. Then a flood swallows up the island. There was only one rack left in there. The frogs huddled trembling from cold and fright. But they felt better now that they were together sharing the same fears and hopes eventually the sky clears the frog swim together hop after butterflies and rest in the weeds, we can work together. Because at the beginning of the story when they were saying, it's mine, it's mine was anybody having fun. The kids get it. The frogs are happier when they stopped being selfish. This is what it looks like to teach. What are sometimes called soft skills? The kind of skills that kids don't get asked about on tests. Of course, Rachel teaches the other things you'd expect counting. Reading and pronunciation. But lessons like this one about the selfish frogs might have the greatest impact. In fact, this.

"This is hidden brain. I'm Shankar Viet. Danton we've been talking today about gender and about our long running debates over the role of biology versus culture for many years. These debates have largely assumed that gender is a binary, male and female, but even a science struggles to understand the male brain and a female brain some people are challenging the reality of those fundamental categories. Jamie shoop is in the vanguard of that movement. Jimmy just pulled into Carson city Nevada up roaming around a west for the past few months in a small Campo booked on top of a pickup truck. So basically were in what's called a truck camper on it's approximately seventeen feet long weighs about three thousand pounds. In other words, heavy and small, but also officiant we've got a microwave and Ave was those view double sink small bathroom with a shower. Jamie's at ease in this desert town clad in jeans, a flowing blouse and headscarf the campus has been traveling a lot of late. But for now Jamie's biggest Joanie is over a rocky trip over the landscape of gender identity. I think the best way to frame this and understand it is to just think of me as very fluid Jimmy lives between the sexes Jamie thinks of himself or herself. But if DEM cells, I can be masculine I can defend it, and I can do anything. I won't Jim. The first officially recognized non gender person in America. It was a status that had to be fought. For and won. It came after five decades struggle a struggle to find an identity that fast right now fifty four years old Jamie was born in Washington DC and raised in a large blue collar family in rural southern Maryland. It was a place of tobacco farms and deep conservative views. This is a place where the kid the black kids that I cut tobacco with dirty the during the summer, they weren't allowed in the farmers houses because they were black. I mean. I mean, it was that kind of place there. There were no gay people were transpeople football because of being called smeared. The queer Jamie was different and didn't fit in with the boys as a teenager. I was reading fashion magazines into doing things like putting I remember what occasions I had written article about putting manny's egg in your hair to make it soft in my mother. Absolutely. Just went ballistic over that and slapped me and called me Assissi. Jamie's mother also lost it when the teenager refused to get a short haircut. And instead got a Perm at just wanted to feel more feminine. So this was Jamie's dilemma he had a male body. But inside there was also a she with all this femininity flowing about romantically. Jamie was drawn to both boys and girls, but this was the late nineteen seventies. So Jamie Toco girl to the Queen of hearts downs and drove a big wheel Camaro and cut tobacco and fast. Nothing at all like a real boy. Yeah. I mean, I have never been connected to identify as a male never agreed that I wasn't male. And yeah, I just had no connection to to masculinity. But it's same time. I knew what the boundaries were. And I knew what the punishment was. And I just kind of went along with things off to high school with no money and few options Jamie, enter the army trained is a mechanic, it meant more going along with things you military is a world of testosterone.

Yeah, like like people losing an arm or whatever, like this stuff is happening, not adding. Yeah, you get your kids that shit doesn't exist. Yeah, you can walls around things, but it doesn't mean things. Aren't there put like when you see something happened in like, yeah, so when something happens, you know, when you have an incident, whether it's like a people hacking there was about the people are hacking with machetes train station in western China, or there was like a guy's truck like blew up in the middle of danton Changhai recently before the news gets out the videos on, we check it out. That's how faucet really? Yeah. So you'll be on your fun even like is that danton Shanghai. What the fuck is like one of the buildings on fire? What's going on? I video with dead people on the ground, and then the news comes out and the knees doesn't match the fucking videos that you just the clean it up. Well, they're just like nobody died. I'm like, I have a video, my fine of someone dead really stay run media to siding with the story should be. I mean, maybe they did this in the west. I don't fucking. I have no information of Alabama bus me. They don't trust them at all. Yeah, I just I don't feel like I was getting an. Insight into China, which is getting inside us to how stuff works and gets presented after it's happened. Like how often do you have a chance to see an unbridled just someone with their foreign just honest trying to catch what's going on before the new story comes at, and then you can look at the news term, but that doesn't match what, how just like, no, I know the facts. Yeah, like I can. I can prove that if you start videos of people like dead in the street outside of fire, just like on the ground. I mean, I can't prove that day, but they did not look alive and it was like no one trying to help them. That's the sign that someone's dead. If there's no trying to help you, you're not alive. And there's people that we were running around helping the people that need help. Right, right. Right. Because they have life in them. Oh, my gosh. Well, we saying about the kids that it was created an outrage of like what kinds of side were you in that like, oh, that one? Yeah, you now I remember you talking about. So I really like China is like any developing country any country anyway is like they will have marmots of self awareness from stuff that's really bad, you know? So there's been like a number of incidence way..
Mark Twain: great novelist, horrible investor
"Twain also invested a lot of money throughout his life though, and he is the first person who's big investment mistake Michael told us about, and actually in the case of twain, it was more than one he made every mistake in the. He was addicted to entrepreneurs. He would fall for anything. He would back any idea. He dabbled in stocks and silver mines, and gold mines. And he just everything he touched, went south twin was like an early version of a venture capitalist. He invested his money in a bunch of new kind of faddish ideas except he was terrible at it. He put his money into milk powder, extract railroad stocks a startup insurance company. They were all disasters and the one big idea that he chose not to put his money into you that he passed up when you had a chance. Alexander Graham Bell telephone, oh, which would have made twain a fortune between biggest mistake. Michael says, might have been throwing a lot of money at this big typesetting business, and it had to do with this machine. The twain hoped would be used by newspapers and publishing companies and twin kept investing more and more and more money in this typesetting business, even as its loss. Were just piling up on his biggest mistake was that he didn't know when to say no moss. I'm not going to continue to fund this really bad investment. Why do you think he could not walk away a, he was human and we all have our our flaws and limitations, and there's something called revenge trading where if you lose money in a stock, you want to win it back the same way and he just could not control himself. And I think that a an underlying theme in this book is that discipline and self awareness is a lot more important to determine your long success than just ro IQ, revenge. Tradings like the worst sequel to a movie ever. Trading revenge, trading revenge of the trader. Poor Mark Twain. Yeah, twain ended up losing an amount of money on that typesetting investment that would be the equivalent today of millions of dollars, but not knowing one to cut. Your losses is actually not the only lesson that we should take away from the story of Mark Twain's terrible investment record. There's another lesson which is at you can be amazing world class at this one thing. Just like Mark Twain obviously was at writing and still be terrible, horrible hopeless at another completely different walk of life like investing or that you can be really bad at investing and still be a really wonderful human being a light in the world gift to the country, all those things. And just I like that change the perspective. Very nice, right. And just like just maybe just, you know, put it in index funds, just put it in index funds next up the oracle from Omaha himself.
