I lived in New York for a really long time and there were plenty of apartments that had no claws or just like one closet or just like a built in, just like a freestanding thing that was required to make something officially a bedroom, but that fit like three hangers in it and just couldn't so I get it.

"Continuing to remind ourselves that we're in like a posture of curiosity and a posture of learning is so important. I'm not going to sit here and pretend like white supremacist culture hasn't pervaded my being. I think we all have a lot of that to grapple with and to learn from and to try and unravel from. So yeah, I think that coming at it from that posture of recognizing that you are learning how to be better, learning how to be antiracist and just because you're going through that process doesn't mean you need to share it on the Internet. Yeah. We'll leave it at that. Yeah. I love that. I love that. Yeah, and I think that that, yeah. And that was exactly what June 2020 felt like, I think, in a lot of ways, which is that we came to this weird place of Internet where it was like, if you don't share, then people assume you're not doing, but if you do share, you look like you're performing. And I think at the end of the day, that was sort of like the superficial conversation around the entire thing because the point was that this last more than June 2020. It lasts more than. Hashtag blackout Tuesday. And I think that yeah, I mean, I think that that's really interesting. And I think it's totally fair for you, I understand feeling like, oh, did I get this following? Because of these horrible atrocities. But it's also like. That's the least you should get in a way. The least. Literally the least. So I don't know. I hope you don't feel that. Badly about it. I am so excited to have found your account. I'm just so excited. I just love looking at people's very pretty houses. You know, it makes me so happy and yours is so beautiful. And I'm excited for more G thanks listeners to follow. You on Instagram. And I can not wait to see which of the listeners come out of the woodwork as people who do know how to use tools and do want to do hashtag Billy bookcase hacks. It's not going to be me, but I will follow anyone who's doing it. And I will cheer you on. Truly, madly and deeply. So Dominique, I know that you like many guests were between two items, feeling like you wanted to talk about both. I said, bring both. There's one that's DIY building, related. There's one that's not. Which one would you like to start with? Let's start with the DIY one. So you can just kind of get it out of the way, 'cause I'm really excited about this second thing. Okay, perfect. So I wanted to talk a little bit and share just, you know, in the sort of vein of demystifying, talk about which tools I actually used to make those bookcases. Okay. Okay. And I.

"Out about the affair. So remember, this is all alleged but right now, this seems to be the most plausible story. On Monday, May 20th, officer Kenny was arrested for the murder of Dominique. He was charged with capital murder and that carries a death penalty sentence. He pleaded not guilty. Kenny was immediately terminated from the Oxford Police Department on May 21st. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation also known as the MB. I took over the case, and they began to build a case against Kenny. They determine that he snuck into Dominic's home while she was sleeping and shot her in the back of the head. On May 24th. Oxford mayor Robinson and he'll ask the Mississippi attorney general. Jim Hood's office to conduct an internal investigation into the office, Police Department on behalf of the city. On behalf of Dominic's family, their attorney Carlos more filed, a wrongful-death lawsuit, for five million dollars, against the city of Oxford in 2019 team. The letter alongside the filing mentions that there was an intimate relationship between Dominique and officer Kinney. It said that he would frequently visit Dominique's house in the middle of the night, most of the time, while he was on duty. The letter also said quote he would arrive at around 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and leave around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Prior to her, death is Clayton informed officer Kenny of the possibility that she was pregnant and quote on Wednesday. May 22nd. When can these charges were presented? Dominic's family, had some reservations about the presiding judge. Judge Andrew Whitworth, they viewed him as was too casual in the way he handled Dominique's case. One thing that stuck out to them when he was talking to the prosecutors and defense attorneys, when they were discussing a quote reasonable bail for Kenny. He even joked when the officers had to take a break to find the charging affidavit Dominic's family, demanded that the judge be replaced and the judge recused himself. The very next day and was replaced by Judge John Gregory Again, can he pleaded not guilty to the capital murder charge? And as of May 2021, he is still being held at the Union County Jail in New Albany, Mississippi, awaiting trial, A tentative trial date has been set for October 11th of this year. So hopefully there will be an update then It's been two years and justice for Dominique. Still hasn't been served, but her family continues to keep her in their memory by maintaining a memorial or Dominique outside of the family home. And that family was a story of Dominique Clayton. Now, I'm going to tell you the story of Carlos Celsius. This story is also a bit different when it comes to the circumstances, surrounding Carlos's death, because of how he died. Carlos LCS was born in nineteen. Seventy in jacmel Haiti. In two thousand when he was thirty years old. Carlos, and his wife on a decided to emigrate to the United States, to make a better life for their family. They had eight children together. Carlos was known to be a very hard working, man and got a job stocking. A place called Bobby's department, store in Brooklyn, New York. On August 15th, 2013, at 5:30 in the morning, a twenty-one-year-old woman was walking near the intersection of Kings Highway and Rockaway Parkway and she was suddenly punched in the face by someone who then took her iPhone.

"Welcome to episode 22 today. I'll be telling you the stories of Dominique Clayton and Carlos alcis. So this first story is a little different than the ones I usually do, because of the circumstances behind the victim's death, and the alleged intent of the police officer. So, here goes Dominique Rochelle Clayton was from Oxford, Mississippi. And her mother was busy Clayton. She was known as Lucy to her friends and family and based on many of the articles that I read Dominique had a pretty close-knit family that cared a lot about her. She also had four children, jadarius kyasia and Lanaya. I will say that it was extremely difficult to find her birthday, but I can infer that she was born in either 1986 or in 1987, she passed away in 2019, and she was thirty-two when she died. So, based on when her birthday was the year would be either of the two that I just mentioned. So during the weekend of May 18th and 19th of 2019 Dominique was getting some alone time at home, her children were staying with them all that weekend, and he was supposed to drop them off on that Sunday. When they came home on Sunday, May 19th Dominic's, youngest son, her eight-year-old. Jadarius was the first one to go inside of the home. One was in a great mood and he wanted to see if he could get his mom, took him outside for a harmless prank. I think it has something to do with a snake or something like that. Not long after going inside and looking for his mother, jadarius came back outside to tell his siblings and uncle that his mother was dead. And my heart breaks so much for this young boy. I mean I cannot imagine being an eight year old and having to see my mother dead from a violent crime. Dominique was thirty-two years old. It was quickly learned that an officer named Matthew Kenney was having an affair with Dominique. And he was the reason behind her death officer Kenny was a married man and Dominic's family said that she and officer Kenny had been dead for about a year and Kimmy was paying for a lot of her expenses. They said that he had purchased Dominica car in his name and he was even planning on purchasing her a home. So why kill her? Well, we also learn from the family that Dominique told them that she thought she was pregnant and she had actually told officer can be sometime before her death. He then visited Dominique unexpectedly. And she told her sister that she was afraid, can he might hurt her?.

This dangerous behavior can distract disrupt and threatened crew members safety functions and as a former airline captain. It's extremely concerning to me.

It was because i wanted to have that mindset for myself of what are things that i need. That are tangible for tomorrow and to be able to feel like i'm still successful. I have to live with chronic illness. But i'm still able to achieve things and it was never the waiting for the cure in air quotes mindset that a lot of people you're instilled especially in the medical community to have in a lot of that for me that exclusivity comes from not being able to see yourself in any format as a kid weren't books with characters who were chronically ill or disabled. You're not seeing them as the angers on the news in fiction television or nonfiction. They're not the bestseller both less and so i was never having access to it so when it became my position it was like. Oh okay wait a minute. I'm not going to be able to be as successful as it used to. Be as happy because anytime you would see a chronically ill or disabled person in a film it was always the melancholy storyline or they needed a romantic partner to be successful and to be happy. And i felt like that was a disservice to me that i had to find all these other things too just because i have to adapt to my body. My house doesn't make it any less special it is that lack of fusing them together was i had to have two different boxes of the days. I felt healthy. Where the only days i could be successful when happy but i was still joking with my friends on the phone. If i was doing work from my bed. 'cause i couldn't get out of bed that day doing work. I'm still having a successful day. Was just not what everybody else likes it to look like. And that was the biggest thing especially through. The work that were able to do within busy does that. Everything is super tangible. I joked that what we do is so common sense that the world doesn't do it yet and understand it yet. We're not reinventing the wheel. It's just you getting the mirror to turn to yourself and being able to realize that you have access to all of the tools you need. You might just need to adapt a few steps than together because construction. The world's not built for the chronically. Ill in disabled yet. Luckily we have people like you and diversity at your podcast out there. So people can have more access especially those that are healthy non-disabled to then be able to see this perspective and realized there's only a couple of things that people need to do to make things more inclusive accessible to if you just look at statistics. It's a very high portion in most countries that identified chronically ill and disabled so i say where the most untapped market for every brand. It's the most intersectional always pitching. Macaroni is come on. Where this whole axis of people who are just waiting to showcase that day are multifaceted and multi-talented. You're totally right. It's not rocket science. I i want to transition the conversation over to advocacy activism. Because we need more people like you in the world and being able to equip others with these tools or these strategies is important so we'll take a break and then when we come back we'll continue chatting with dominique..

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron
"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the
2020: The year in review
"To look at the year's biggest stories. I was joined by three of the newspapers correspondence on the front line. Reporting the huge events of this year and their effects on the art world and a brady is our market editor. He's a buck is our contemporary correspondent and gareth harris is our chief contributing editor inevitably as we tackle the year's event to major global stories dominated the discussions the coronavirus pandemic and the death of george floyd and the fight for racial justice. I'd like to begin by talking about the effective of covid on the market. And and obviously this is your area of expertise. And i want to begin by talking about the fares. Because in a way they've been the marker of this exponential rise in the market over the last decade but they fail just as suddenly this year. I told me about fares on the covid back in march and sort of early mart taper off maastricht happened and it was kind of happened a week beforehand. It might have been okay and had happened week. Afterwards i think it definitely would have been cancelled and myself a lot of other journalists. Went out again. See the fat and it had very strange kind of atmosphere. He sort of jokingly foot tapping and elba bumping. But i think people sort of thought that something viruses affecting the outside world won't penetrate walls in the champagne and kind of that elite nature is. Shut down an exhibitor had got tested positive covid and after that so many people attend to call the virus at the fair and some of them were really radio and in intensive care and i think that was just a for me. That was kind of big wake-up cool overseas in the uk went into lockdown the us. After that the armory we happen to have the same sort of time but it was. It definitely was a kind of think. Reality shock that this is going to be something that really was can affect all of us. It didn't matter our were or whether you were off a this forest and have any kind of respect for face of mesa foundries and it's just as one said to me. Everything kind of fell off a cliff in late off training. And then you just saw this sort of chain of cancellations volvo fairs. I mean it's fair to say that the the big fairs have had a terrible year right. Yes they even had an awful. Yeah i was thinking back to when we speak russia beginning of the doing a year ahead. Podcasts i remember when i was leaving afterwards sending i think maggie a message saying we didn't mention carina. Virus and thousand mistake is at that point. We were recording sort of sauce january and we of it very much. They'll as an asian problem and a lot of the talk then was about whether autism hong kong was going to be cancelled and it was at the end of january but i think people still thought that it was going to be quite contained a there but after that east be the fence being canceled was knees. Now fast. Going ahead is news. Just the just hasn't really been anything since about much aside from these fares in in shanghai in november which did manage to go ahead that is a different world to rest of the world maidment. And i think we're really going to see any until about late. May next year by the looks of aside from say ought to buy which is saying that it will go ahead and march but whether actually will not very much master of debate gareth. That's why isn't it all. The fares are sort of basically postponing. And then there's going to be this glut of that happened in the middle of twenty twenty one. I mean i think the all world is beginning to think about a return to some kind of post virus malady but that's difficult is just said because the twenty twenty one calendar is looking quite crunchy. Really got balls. The hong kong is the first honor scheduled kickoff next. Mary and yams new york is next summer. So think there's about six or seven major phase in a row so within a few weeks within night mates at that tape off maastricht delayed Home call up. Awesome hong kong freeze. Neil and then our puzzle as well and then freeze. La in july. But we've been here before. Yeah i mean but we saw. The september was going to be back to back this year with fairs. That were delayed for the spring valley summer. They weren't they never actually happened. So i sort of we could be faced with the crunch or we could be faced with nothing at all this weird september. It's really hot today. It's difficult isn't because dealers and clubs helps to prioritize where they're going to go next spring some depending on all sorts of things like a vaccine and all other source of corona sort of things. I mean i just wonder how dealers will where to go. I mean i spoke to dominique levy a few weeks ago. And she said she's going to have to prioritize not would be quite difficult to do but i suppose collectors just itchen allow curator's itching to get back to in real life

Breaking down Kyler Murray-to-DeAndre Hopkins Hail Mary
"Dominic. It is eleven twenty seven pm eastern. And i m almost done tattooing. Cuyler murray's name using a ballpoint pen across my chest. Go forward i'm with you. Want me wait why you finish your being supportive in a way. That bill barnwell. Why usually talk do right now. Isn't i think like he would be reasonable and discourage me from doing this. But you're a far less responsible character. It feels. I'm here for a good time now longtime just today's episode so i'm fumbled fox ready for sublime tattoo it. Let's have some drinks. Whatever you wanna do. Pablo dominique. Foxworth is a writer and commentator for. Espn he played seven seasons in the nfl at defensive back and he's espn dailies. fun uncle. Well what i wanted to do before we get hammered together is talk to you about this play. That is inspired all of this ink to be spill both across my chest and across the country. Because i think it's the play of the year. I think what we saw in this bills. Cardinals game is the play of the year. And it's worth noting for posterity that the bills had just one said gave right before it happened. Josh allen had thrown. I think the pass of his life to step on digs putting buffalo thirty to twenty six with just thirty nine seconds left. The snap man looks to his left. Choirs left side. Then go to the point steph. Both touchdowns catches a touchdown pass from josh allen. What cuyler murray then does rolling left. Let's hit pause as his bomb is launched from midfield in his dangling in the air. Because you are a cornerback in your blood in your soul. How do you even approach defending this sort of a play as db well. They did it wrong. Obviously they were all going for the ball which you don't necessarily want to do in that situation and trae white one of the best corn illegal that he was trying to catch it which any coastal tell you. Bet it down. So everyone's out there trying to pad their stats in the thing that i would normally do. Not ideology happens as a particularly big receivers but tall receivers will jump well over the arms can't catch a bomb like that with one hand if you do best one for you. So that's what they did wrong going for the ball in also trying to patch stats with an interception i. I was particularly happy towards the end of that game because on get up last week. I said that stefan digs is unstoppable. Man coverage way. You shut down passing offenses in this league. We all know it. It's tight man coverage you can't do that. Against stefan digs. He has been created the most explosive plays of any receiver in this league against man coverage. So he caught the game winning touchdown man coverage also said in that same segment the andrea hopkins is the best contested cats receiver in the league. He's one of the top receivers in a league in winning contestant catches so he can get open but the scary part about him is. It doesn't matter you put it anywhere his entity even if you're close to them you're buying he might bring it down and embarrassed boom so win for me. How about that back to back dubbed up.
Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19
"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.
Sudan floods: UN calls for urgent funding,asfood insecuritymounts
"While Sudan has been hit by devastating floods the worst seen in decades impacting more than six hundred, thousand people across seventeen of the country's eighteen states with homes destroyed and farmland damage. Just ahead of the harvest season, he's been another shock amid multiple crises according to the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO urgent funding is needed to support a country already facing alarmingly high rates of hunger and food insecurity. Dominique Bergin FAO's director of emergency resilience has just returned from a mission to sedan. He told Charlotte Lomas how dire the situation really is for people there. They're just returned from Sudan couple of days ago where I wasn't a mission already to the floods which have been affecting the countries over the last couple of these floods are truly devastating down the largest thinking the country in over seventy years who have conducted happy assessments with the me of coacher and found that up to six hundred thousand households have been affected by the impact. Of the floods more than two point, two million actors have been damaged. So it's quite serious but the problem here is that this comes at the top of an already difficult situation for millions of paper as a matter of fact, before these, let's nine point six million people were already in acute food insecurity ready a very difficult situation related to a variety of of issues social economic crying he's covid crises and even know in some part of the country the issues already locust. So quite serious situation that therefore Esguerra, our full attention. You travel to two of the affected sites what were your impressions? So we went to two of the most affected states we undertook mission with government officials as a matter of. Factly culture was with us and we spend today's in blue, Nile State, and in Sennar state, and they're what we could see is the variety of the damaged. We saw the impact on commercial farmers, and with few damage, they will be very little employment opportunities for the people. So one of the things we saw. We saw. Livestock owners, Pasta list being severely affected. By doing of the floods having lost for some of them up to seventy five percent of their livestock, which in turn is a problem for them because this is their main source of livelihood we saw that forty two percent of those affected by by the floods are women and it all sorts. So we went to the field we we spend time with them, and what we saw is that I mean situation is very, very severe. This time of the year they should have sorghum that is one meter and a half I ready to our best. Instead, we could see field full of. wheats with sorghum and that will not be honest. So in talking to these women, we understand they're already struggling. They're adopting what we call negative coping strategies, which means that they are cutting the number of the means to quantity of them is and what we found is that at this point of the ready, they're only having one meal per day and very basic meal. So very T- tuition and therefore these people need our assistance. How will this floods affect food security across the country? The food security situation prior to the floods was already severe nine point six, million people in acute insecurity. Two point two million people in emergency face. When we visited the blue states, what was clear is that we were in a state where twenty seven percent of the population prior to the plots was already in acute with with insecurity. So it is clear that with the impact of the ways, the fact that people not be able to harvest with the fact that they have been losing animals with the fact that prices are extremely volatile and ever tendency to increase significantly. The estimate is that the food security situation will further. And therefore, we need to be ready to provide at scale. Livelihood Saving Assistance. In collaboration, of course, we other agencies what is doing to assist Sadan since the beginning of the year I feel despite the covid situation has been able to provide assistance who about nine, hundred, twenty, thousand people, which is quite significant in this context. Now, what we are doing is that we are appealing for additional resources innovation essentially to the floods, but the flood. Being one more driver of accurate with insecurity. So, what we are doing is essentially appealing for seventy million dollars additional. To basically cover the needs of the people for the coming season in terms of cash assistance for people to meet the most immediate needs press agricultural inputs for the coming season so that immediately they can go back to their productivity. Always bearing in nine FAO wide providing humanitarian livelihood saving activities is very keen to build the zillions of populations which as we know are essential when people face regular shocks.
Having the Last Word
"I am about to or I am going to die either expression is correct. These were the last words of seventeenth century, French, Jesuit, priest grammarian, and man after my own Heart Dominique Boehner. Narrowly, edged out by eighteenth century French Aristocrat who declared I see you have made three spelling mistakes. As. He read over his own death warrant. We assign a lot of significance to last words hoping that we'll leave some deep philosophical epitaph or something funny like what's this button do? But you may end up with last words like American author, Henry David Thoreau who simply said Moose. Indian. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Many people think Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde's last words were either this wallpaper goes or I do. That would be typical wild but there are two small factual inaccuracies in this retelling. The actual quote is this wallpaper and I are a duel to the death either it goes or I do. And he said that a few weeks before he died. Oscar Wilde's actual last words were a mumbled prayer. He did also say toward the end of his life as he lay in bed sipping champagne I am dying beyond my means. With about a third of the world being Christian it's not surprising that God gets mentioned a fair amount. As the clock was winding down for one of the baddest.

The second stage usually presents with a rash and fever. These resolve and the disease enters the latent stage which can last for years. You're not infectious in the latent stage, but the bacteria may still be damaging your heart bones, nerves, and brain. People would think they were no longer sick which was just as well since there was no cure anyway. Tertiary Syphilis the third stage.

How To Stop Lamar Jackson in 2020 (Hint: Pray)
"So Dominique I truly hate to butter up. You're already greasy ego but I summoned you here really to discuss Lamar Jackson and so I did two things. The first thing I did was look up his forty time, which was a self reported four, three four. And then I looked up your forty time and. The Internet done. Tells me that you ran. A four, three four. Well unlike Lamar Jackson I do not have an MVP trophy to show for it. I'M GONNA say it's because the Thanh hadn't caught up I was a high school quarterback. Position I'd be doing Lamar I don't even believe that. But as for Lamar Jackson. It is also fair to say that nobody bought stock in this kid faster than you. You call them a league changing prospect. Before he was drafted, you wrote about him last year when he was on his way to becoming the second unanimous MVP, an NFL history. So what did you see that other people did not? Think that he has the set that is. Transcendent to use an overused term in sports media. I think was more important in your piece that I wrote before the draft along with me times that we talked about how important it was that he landed in a perfect situation and when he went to Baltimore. Being that it was an organization that I played in a city that I grew up in I knew that that was an organization I was smart enough to build around his skills. But back, then people didn't really think that way and they thought Lamar Jackson wasn't a guy who could fit. So he clearly does or maybe he doesn't fit but they built a team around him that would fit him, which is the way that you do with ingrate player. So looking back now on his brief time in the league so far Lamar did face his fair share of skeptics doubters any even be competent NFL. Horrific performances we had ever seen I'm a Baltimore Ravens Fan I'm concerned has got a lot to prove but now dominique based on how he season ended last year. I can kind of feel some of those same doubts creeping up again. I mean, the Ravens scored twelve points in Jackson had three turnovers in that shocking divisional round loss to the titans. So on that Game I. What actually happened. Lamar didn't play his best game, but it's unfair to hang that on the Mar and I'm sure you've heard many stats of how long it took a lot of other great quarterbacks to win their first playoff game and even make it to the playoffs but Asaf Net if you watch that game again, tomorrow perfect. But it's six drops and that defense that had been stout all year was getting run all over by their Kendrick Henry breaks the tackle thirty. Henry ten Henry down an eight yard line and they couldn't stop anybody and Lamar and a tip ball for interception. Jackson. Taxi fires down the Middle Ball ticket buyer.

"dominique" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm holly FRY and I'm Tracy Wilson so obviously still in the midst of pandemic one of the things that has been in the news a lot and certainly weighing heavily on my mind is all of the work that's being done by emergency and hospital medical workers and so that kind of like was what I was going to look into for this week's show like I started researching To do kind of a brief history of emergency medicine which is still in the works but I got a little sidetracked because there is so much that I found myself. Like struggling to get a cohesive and Organiz thing going on but in the midst of doing all of that I stumbled across and I'm sorry because it's another French topic Dominique John Lee. Who is a really really interesting historical figure that I had not known anything about kicking myself for reasons? I will feel at the end that I didn't know about this before we were in France but He created something called the Flying Ambulance. It's not literally airborne but his work was largely informed I by his medical schooling but then also by his work with the French army. And so we're GonNa talk about him today and how he developed an ambulance system that even today the systems he set up in an adapted former still essentially used and a lot of his medical developments that he created are still used. Even outside of you know like a combat zone type medic situation so we're going to jump in on a barren Dominique John Les Dominique. Laurie was born in Budi on France near the Pyrenees on July. Eight seventeen sixty six. He had an older brother. Charles Francois he layer the family was really not wealthy. Dominic. John's early education was given to him by the local priest. I they say until his father died. And then at that point dominic. John was sent to lose to study medicine with an uncle. Dr Alexis Flurry. There's some discrepancy and exactly when that happened based on which biography you're looking at. There are some sources that place the move to to lose when he was eleven others when he was thirteen. Regardless in this path of study Dominique's John was following not only in his uncle's footsteps. But also in those of his older brother who had become a surgeon bears a lot of discrepancy in Bates. When you start really looking at biographies of him there is a biography that I looked at a lot. Britain in the eighteen sixties. That the date they give for his birth is impossible like he would have been like eleven doing some of his most important stuff like there are. It's a little bit tricky to tease out. Exact dates on some of his his Key points until he really gets in the military when records were really carefully taken A Alexi who was the surgeon major at Hospital of Gov and an associate at the Royal Academy of Surgery in Paris was very aware that not only was he giving his nephew a medical education but that he was also stepping into the role of surrogate father and he actually told Dominique Zone when he first arrived that he would be his adopted son after a number of years with his uncle when he was twenty one laura moved to Paris there. He became an assistant surgeon in the French navy and soon he was departing from Port at Brest aboard a sloop called lavish element is work with the Navy was pretty fraught. He was nearly shipwrecked almost immediately the seven months that he served aboard this ship gave him really strong opinions about the importance of hygiene and also taught him a great deal about the treatment of injuries and ailments and really tight quarters by seventeen eighty nine. The young doctor was back in Paris and that was just as the violence of the French Revolution was really creating an increased need for the for emergency medical care. He also became a student of Pierre. Joseph Bisseau during this time who is heading up the teams that we're treating injuries from the riots and the fighting at the hotel and hotel volleyed dissolve was the first professor of clinical surgery in France and he was both beloved and renowned. Stoudt Laret was basically getting on the job cutting edge education in medicine under his tutelage in the early seventeen ninety s dominique. Jean joined France's Army of the Rhine and reported for duty at Strasbourg on April. First of seventeen ninety two and this is where he made the impact for which he's probably best known today but to talk about that with a bit of context to back up just a little bit all the way through ancient history so the concept of an ambulance and by that we mean a vehicle that could rapidly transport injured or sick people to treatment. Is nothing new? That word ambulance is also used in some of the raise writing Later on to suggest Lake an Itinerant Hospital and one of the primary drivers to the development of a system of carrying the wounded throughout history has been war. One of the earliest instances we know of when conflict led to moves forward in emergency care was thanks to Alexander. The Great Father Philip. The second of mastodon during the fourth century CE he made the decision that has deployed troops would have medical personnel who traveled with them to treat injuries and illnesses as they occurred. During campaigns dumping forward drum bear to the sixth century Marissa's Emperor of Byzantine similarly ensured that his fighting troops were accompanied by medical assistance in the case of Marissa's his army set up tents that were adjacent to the field of battle that were designed for emergency care and specially designated horsemen stood by with Saddles. That had been designed to carry the injured caregivers. Waiting in those tents centuries later a similar system was employed during the Crusades though wagons. Were used at that point in time instead of single horsemen in the fifteenth century. The idea of dedicated wagon teams carrying those injured and military battles caught on throughout Europe. Queen is of Spain is the first we know of who created a fleet of wagons that had been designed and constructed just for this task but soon a lot of other nations had incorporated similar vehicles into their militaries and the idea of medical personnel. Traveling with military troops had become a lot more common but a more formalized plan for ambulances in the field was developed by Dominique. Jean a in seventeen ninety two levay at this point was a surgeon traveling when the police army and he saw firsthand not only how brutal battle could be but the often wounded soldiers were left suffering for hours sometimes as long as a full twenty four hour day or longer before they could be moved by available personnel. While those other militaries that we have been talking about over time had adopted the idea that they should have medical personnel standing by and even vehicles to transport the wounded. None of those protocols were designed to ever be used on an active battlefield those features would swoop in once the fighting was over. And so that meant that. Not only were those injured soldiers going without treatment as they lay on the battlefield. They also weren't getting any food or water. Laret wrote about the problems and obstacles of caring for the battle wounded and their grave consequences in his notes quote. I now I discovered the inconveniences to which we were subjected in moving our ambulances or military hospitals the military regulations required that. They should always be one league distant from the army. The wounded were left on the field until after the engagement and then collected at a convenient spot to which the ambulances speeded as soon as possible but the number of wagons interposed between them in the army and many other difficulties so retarded their progress that they never arrived and less than twenty four or thirty six hours so that most of the wounded died for want of assistance. Yeah a league by the way which he references is almost three point five miles more than five point five kilometers so these makeshift hospitals were set up quite far away from the actual battle home. We should note that. While witnessing the misery of battlefield injury spurred Laret to developing a solution it was certainly not as though he was the first person to realize that military's could do better in caring for their war-wounded many nations recognized that there is a huge problem in that soldiers with treatable injuries were often lost simply because they could not get to life saving treatment in time the French government had issued a call for some sort of solution to this problem several years before they even joined the army. We'll talk about the raise ambulance. After we I pause for a quick sponsor break support for stuff. You MISSED IN HISTORY. Class comes from our friends at rocket mortgage by quicken loans.

"Last days of trial barshop warned not to do it again but the trial was soon over in the decision handed to the jury so it became a non actually dominic. Did you'll hear he did yell again. He had an outburst at someone else after the evidence is presented and none of the medical evidence is refuted you know. They had established that John. Sweeney Killed Dominique Dunne. He strangled her for four to six minutes. That's what happened. That's not in dispute. It's what level of premeditation or not was it. What level of murderer okay? The jury went out for eight days. Which is a long time. It's good though people. I'm sorry if you don't know this. But what is the difference? This is in California right. Yes what is the difference between Murder murder to and manslaughter. Because I know some states the difference between the two is very slight it is slight and some states so I know that also when we teach it to like a second degree murder means that you did intend to harm the person you just GonNa take exactly. Manslaughter fits that. It does too. But it's an emotional response in which murder wasn't the intended consequence so I think it's you know what I mean. It's it's a reckless act. It's wondering what the how the punishment differ the antenna to the punishment is. There's a big difference in the abundance and the intent is really you know what the what the issue isn't differentiating. But yeah there's a huge punishment gap between okay so the jury was out for eight days. They asked for clarification on jury instructions several times. It was clear that they were confused. And I guess the judge kept telling them to for refer back to the instructions in. I'm not clear about what the issue was but I think they were definitely confused however when they came back on September twenty. First nineteen eighty-three they found. Sweeney guilty of manslaughter for Dominique's death and misdemeanor assault for the earlier choking incident the maximum sentence for the two charges six and a half years and with parole sweeney could be out in less than three. Wow that's crazy. Wow is right so. Emily is highly outraged. Yeah let's get to the aftermath here. After the jury gave their verdict Judge Katz. Thank them for their service. Pronouncing justice served to which Dominic Dunn shouted at Him. Not For our family and clearly shocked. Judge Katz told done he would have his chance to speak at Sweeney sentencing on November seventh. The press however was very critical of judge. Cats afterward. Yeah I think this is. This is when we like to see the press. Hold people accountable so they questioned whether this was justice or a legal loophole and judge. Katz was put on a list of the worst judges in Los Angeles. I thought it was awesome to the day of Sweeney. Sentencing protesters took to the streets outside the courthouse. Protesting the verdict and the judge. So Judd cats heard statements from everyone and pronounced the maximum sentence. Which was you know six? And a half years blaming the jury for finding Sweeney guilty of a lesser crime than he deserved so the judge blames them. We'll get to that in a minute. Judge Katz asked to see the Duns in his chambers as well after sentencing Dominic reported that he was very curious what was going to happen so Dominic Dunn reports. That cats was very sweet to them. Both telling them that he was shocked about the verdict in disappointed by a verdict that he had clearly helped shape. Yeah from the outset. The verdicts might have turned out a lot differently. Had Judge Cats not made some of these crucial decisions his apologies and he dominic Dunn said he judge. Cats gave them his phone number. Said if you ever need anything and I think Dominic Dunn said like what the Hell would I ever call him for it? Meant nothing to the duns and of course judge cats would quickly be transferred to a family court following. This trial could yeah. I think that was good as well. The done family did not get justice that they felt of course but they did do all they could to fight for their daughter and as they reported Dominic Dunn reported talking to one of from an organization like the parents of children who said to them. This is the last piece of business you'll do for your daughter. You have to go to trial every day and you have to make sure you do everything this is. The last thing you're going to do. Lenny became active in the organization. The parents of murdered children and she founded her own organization as well while Dominic Dunn would go on to become a famed crime writer focusing on high profile cases involving he wasn't a crime writer prior to this he wasn't no he really didn't write about crime until he wrote about his daughter's case and that was the first thing he he wrote about and then he would go on to Work ON SEVERAL HIGH PROFILE CASES. He does true crime yes so he would work on. He focused the rest of his career or most of the rest of his career on high profile cases involving celebrity criminal defendants in which there was maybe going to be a case of injustice. Would someone get away with murder? So done became a regular he was actually offered a seat at the O. J. Simpson Trial and he befriended the Goldman family's AH commentator to was he he had a show power and I forget the show power injustice or you know something he he. He had a television show when he was a writer and yes he was a commentator to some degree so he befriended the Goldman family and he also was the person who urged Mark Furman from the OJ trial. You know disgraced cop still a good detective is Dominic Dunn would say. He urged him later to reinvestigate the Martha Moxley murder So Mark Furman. Did that investigated it and wrote the book and was kind of integral and that was really at the behest of Dominic Dunn And Dominic Don would also sit in and write on other famous cases so he worked on the Menendez Brothers case and he worked on the close bulow case and a couple of other high profile cases. That's what he would spend the rest of his career doing so what happened to John. Sweeney John Sweeney would be released after three and a half years and returned to a position as a chef in Santa Monica in in like a high profile restaurant but Dominic Dunn wasn't having it. I believe that it went something like this. He quickly got his himself in supporters over to the restaurant passing out fliers letting the customers that their meal would be prepared by the man who murdered his daughter. Yeah so the position. For Sweeney would be short-lived Sweeney would eventually leave California and changed his name. Don would follow him for several years. He had an investigator and I believe even after Sweeney changed his name he got engaged again to marry someone and they believe the father of that woman contacted. Dominic Dunn asking. Is this the same person and I think? So you know maybe even Dominic Dunn was you never know. Maybe he could have prevented another tragedy by by following him Kim tabs on him he had a private investigator who followed Sweeney for some time but eventually he. He said that he had to let it go. He had hoped that something bad would happen. To Sweeney before he died and that would be the end of that story so dominic did let it go eventually but obviously it's scarred their family tremendous where sweeney is today or what his what he's doing now. I I don't I did look you know. He moved. He was smart of him. Change Your name move. Oh I change your name and move and at some point I think sweeney claim that Dominic Dunn was harassing him. Which you know. I don't know to. What degree Dominic Dunn was following him or doing anything but the claims never went anywhere so I don't know what happened to Sweeney. I believe he changes. He changed his name as I understand it to John. Moro Okay N had relocated far from California. So who knows if he has a family and maybe he reformed his life. I have no idea maybe among us and we don't even know it's possible it's also interesting that this crime for which he paid very little did not pay much of a debt to society had a real impact on the done family in the way they would go onto impact other cases. Dominic Dunn would become one of the best advocates for celebrity injustice. So at the end. Let's talk a little bit about our opinions because I have a few on this. Do you want me to go first or would you like to go first? Amy I mean I could just tell you that I. I'm assuming you feel the same way. He there was not justice. In this case I think it was a little sexism. You know the way. They were trying to devalue Dominique's life and like you said there's probably some politics at play right because they had the judge had a relationship with his attorney and he. Yeah it's it's really shocking to me that they did not include the testimony of the former girlfriend and the mother that is directly relevant to the case. I could almost see the argument for why they didn't or why the judge wouldn't have allowed Lenny's testimony. It was reporting an incident that Dominique told here say possible. Yes and he also said it was prejudicial I still think it should have been allowed but Lillian years major major mistake. And we've talked about this. We talked about indirect appeal all the time. How one decision. Judicial discretion has the has the potential to change the course of the case had that come in. I think we'd be looking at very different decision. I think regardless I would have to agree with you. It was probably not first degree murder however the judge should have at least let the jury is set to agree with that but I do think it should have been secondary not manslaughter. Second degree murder for sure. And so what happened? I think I told you is that the judge blamed the jury and then the jury blamed the judge saying well. You know we didn't hear about X Y AND Z. And we didn't see this. The Judge Limited our decision making and they also said that the jury instructions were very confusing. And they ask for clarification but did not get it so I think that's we should have gotten second degree murder. That would've been justice. I think I mean it still would never be enough for the family but what would inappropriate sentence. I I really sat and thought about this. What's the right sentence for someone? Who does something like this and for me? The magic number probably would have been somewhere around twenty years. I don't know I'm putting you on the spot I know but now I think maybe there's gotta be a number. I think the crime so now. There's no like you said there was no number. That could bring her back right so family. I think if something is not premeditated I think we have a problem in our country. With over incarceration. If you're going to give people twenty years for something that was not premeditated. Then what are you gonNa give someone for premeditation right so to me?.

"But the sad part about this and what most of the world did not know at the time. Was that the bruises. All over dominance face and throat in the episode. We're not make up. They were real. They had come from an earlier attack. The one I described in which. Sweeney attacked her. Why wasn't sweeney arrested for domestic violence because Dominic didn't report it to the police? Which is not uncommon. We know of women who are abused as well but you would think someone on the set would be like. Hey you look pretty bad. We should probably purport. There was a lot of talk on the set of facts that you know dominate didn't need much makeup or you know and it was a very sad point for her parents because they didn't know at the time had only heard after and when they watched the episode they knew that those bruises were real and their daughter. So this was something that happened right. After that that revealed the pattern that was going on here back to Sweeney after many failed plea attempts and preliminary arguments the trial against Mr tweenies commenced in August of nineteen eighty three. So that's almost a year. After Dominique's death judge Burton cats a young judge who Dominic Dunn described as Stylish good-looking. And someone who knew it was he was good looking comfortable with an audience and almost flirty with the jury presided over the case. The defense would win a number of early victories in this case and although they did not win this one. Adelson who was the public defender requested that Lenny Dominique's mother not allowed at the trial because it would create too much sympathy for the victim. Lenny was in a wheelchair because she had multiple sclerosis and they tried to get her ousted from the courtroom thin. They weren't successful or no. They were not successful in that one but it would not be the first time. Just see another. It'd be a number of other times. Where the defense would try to get dominic and his family. The brothers removed from the courtroom they were actually warned. You'll hear so the interesting thing is the dynamic that'll be laid out to between the judge and the attorneys but the family. The done family was warned on a number of occasions. You know not to show emotion and not to. There are warnings in court. If you can't control your emotions but it seems that it was more directed at the done family actually okay. So he didn't win this one but they did win a couple others that would definitely impact the course of the case. So one of the major victories that definitely changed. I think that trajectory here was the exclusion of the testimony of a young woman named Lillian. Pierce she was John Sweeney's previous girlfriend and the judge allowed her to testify outside of the presence of the jury to see if her testimony would be admissible so she testified in front of the judge in in front of actually in front of the courtroom. Just not in front of the jury. I never heard of that happened often. It does happen in some cases. Yeah determined to miss ability so yes. Let's say. She was allowed to testify in the presence of the judge and the attorneys for sure with a direct and cross examinations. So what Lillian said was that John Sweeney had beaten her at least ten times. During their couple year relationship and in two separate incidents caused hospitalization for a punctured eardrum collapsed lung and a broken nose. She described regular violence against her and she described being terrified of the defendant is interesting during Barshefsky questioning. He's the district attorney of during brushes testimony of William Peers. John Sweeney the defendant jumped out of his seat and ran for the back door quickly. Subdued by a bailiff a sobbing Sweeney was addressed by a seemingly sympathetic judge Katz. Who actually said Mr Sweeney? We know what a strain you're under. An who accepted an apology from Sweeney. As if though he hadn't just tried to escape the courtroom my was it apparently too much for him to listen to what was he got upset by. The testimony is ex girlfriend. Who's saying he's a violent abuser. He GETS UP AND RUNS. Tries to run from the courtroom crazy and instead of I mean someone has held in contempt of court for that. Of course so what happens is they subdue him. His his lawyer was actually yelling. Don't hurt my client which is interesting and the judge is seemingly very sympathetic. Saying we're sorry. We know you understand. We know this is hard for you. That's crazy and so- Sweeney's we saw bing and the apologizes to the judge and the judge says it's okay. Don't worry about it. No big deal so okay Lillian. Pierce was obviously afraid. Everyone in the courtroom was actually shocked and and pretty scared. I think by what happened. So was her testimony admissible so the judge decided that her testimony would not be admissible. For what reason okay. So the judge says that her testimony would be more prejudicial than probative. And we hear this. What a pattern established as a pattern of behavior. We hear this. When when there are questions about a defendant's passed a lot of times. The past behavior is not relevant to the crime. So it's more prejudicial right it just makes them look bad I this is directly relevant to the pattern to the way in which he inflicted these crimes. There's also no question that he why didn't he just plead guilty? He admitted doing it while this go to try it so he was actually going to plead guilty There were a couple of times in which he considered pleading guilty pleading guilty and but he would plead guilty with the stipulation from his attorney that he would only serve seven and a half years and they wouldn't meet that so that's why he went because it's a short amount of time but I'm saying and the prosecutor and agree to it sounds. Cuter didn't so at one point. The duns were approached about a plea deal and then they were going to do it. Dominic Dunn reported that because of Lennie's health because she was seriously ill he considered a plea deal. He didn't want her to have to go through. This and that deal somehow fell apart. I'm not sure why then a second deal was offered by their attorney in which John Sweeney the defense it would John Sweeney would plead guilty but he would only serve seven and a half years and that the district attorney objected. That should've yeah. I agree that's that's not an appropriate deal but we'll see what happens. Okay okay. So so William Pierce testimony which would have been critical. It's out okay. Lenny would also testify in front of the judge but outside of the jury about an incident of violence in which Dominique fled John and her their shared home and came to her house and she came. Injured came terrified. It was the incident where he pulled her hair out And so many had information about what Dominique it said it. How she looked she describes her you curling up in a fetal position at a fear. She describes her being clearly terrified. And this is what Lenny observed so judge cats ruled that Lenny's testimony would also not be allowed because it was more prejudicial meekness deaf overarching question. What was the defense claiming? They clearly weren't claiming self defense. We'll get there. Oh because I sure can't understand what they're not claiming he didn't do anything okay. We're GONNA get there. Though by the way the judge also ruled that none of Dominique's friends could testify about the five weeks prior to her death about the incidents between her and Sweeney because of the hearsay rules. Who the hell was testifying in this trial. Well one of the people who testified was John. Sweeney okay the defendant. So Sweeney takes the stand in his defense acting sweet courteous and emotional crying but never with that outburst never violent seemingly very sympathetic character seemingly very remorseful character aiming that. It was a mistake so what he says is that he and Dominique had broken up. They plan to reconcile and they were going to work it out and when he came over that night she by the way that the plans to reconcile was not supported by anyone. This was completely supported. This is his story when he came over that night. Dominique told him that she had changed her mind and he said that he became so upset. And so this was just. I was so emotional and so upset. My reaction was to attack her but conveniently and amy. Stop if if you haven't heard this one before he couldn't remember the actual attack Dow all right which was several minutes of strangulation and he claims. He's remorseful I don't know what came over me okay. So his lawyer framed this always as a crime of passion and he always called it the tragedy that happened the tragic incident all round rather than a murder. Wow and that's how this was framed. And that was that provided the framework for the whole case. Okay well how is that cross examination of him that the defense do a good job of trying to tear apart his so the defense you mean the sorry the prosecution? Oh I'm so sorry. Yes the prosecution the prosecution. They referenced. you know did a fine job in but he stuck to the story and he never lost his temper. Okay which is so important. They couldn't bring up the past incidents. Don't you have a history of violence? None of that came into play so they worked with what they had and they. The prosecution did a good job. But also you're going to hear and as Dominic Dunn would describe it. The judge favored the defense. They really they had a previous relationship. The judge knew him. The judge did not favour barshop but also it seems as though the judge didn't actually like him now. I can't substantiate about not of course all right so let me tell you you know. Framed Sweeney testifies in the end when Barshop rested his case. So that was the prosecutor judge. Cats would deliver the most devastating decision regarding the charges. The jury could consider so judge. Cats precluded them from considering first degree murder and limited their consideration to second degree murder or manslaughter. Adelson argued and the judge agreed that there was no evidence of premeditation which I think was clearly a question for the jury. Yes that's the whole purpose of a jury and they're saying because he didn't show up with a weapon because his hands were the weapon that how big was he compared to dominic. Oh he was takes. Dominique Dominique was five foot. One and one hundred and ten pounds about your size smaller smaller. Yes and John was as I understand six foot and two hundred pounds so if you were doing like a self defense claim you know what I'm saying like if you need to consider sizes here in key clearly overpowers her well? That was the argument from the attorney to the argument from the Prosecutor and obviously the done family was. This guy's weapons have always been his hands. He's bigger guy and he used them he also as they understood it had a couple of drinks at Mommy's on and plan to go over and Confront Dominique. So I you know what I have to say though. I do think it's a stretch. I don't think the evidence necessarily supports premeditation. I think he's Shit. Had this guy and he evidence might not. I think the evidence would have shown that he I mean we talk about a little bit that he was planning to go over and so of course the defense would say he was just planning's go over and talk to her and of course. The prosecution said he was planning to go over. He was enraged. She wouldn't take his calls anymore and he was going to confront her. If she wasn't going to take him back he was going to kill her. Yeah so either way the jury should a jury should have been able to decide but they also by the way the defense also a couple times painted dominique as they tried to dirty the victims. So they talked about a couple times went out and had too much to drink kind of dissatisfied with any has nothing to do with any they allow that they allowed that in up so and it really upset obviously it upset Dominic Dunn obviously upset his family so during one of the brakes Dominic Dunn called Adelson piece of Shit his face and it's great for which Adelson tried to get him thrown out of court but the judge wasn't going to the judge said one thing he wasn't going to throw the victim's father out and especially in one of the.

This is episode nine the Dominique Don Story Hi Amy I million I and welcome to this episode of women and Crime so amy we'll ask. We'll start off. Do you know who Dominique Dennis. I know the name. I don't know the story. Okay have you heard of Dominic Dunn? Yes I have. I thought you were just saying the name wrong. Which wouldn't be surprising actually for us. So okay let's talk about Dominique Dunne. You're right there is a there's dominique and there's dominic. So I'll differentiate Dominique Dunne was born on November twenty third nineteen fifty-nine in Santa Monica California to Parents Ellen Beatrice Griffin who was a ranching heiress. Who goes by the name Lenny? She always went by Lenny and father to dominique was Dominic Dunn and he was an acclaimed writer and television producer. And she was also dominic was also the niece of a famous writer. Joan diddy in and she's yeah you know who she is yeah. I've read herself right. So Dominique comes from a very established well to do family obviously a very talented family as well in the industry of the Arts Dominique was the youngest of three children and she was the only girl her older brother Griffin Dunne is also an actor and I didn't know immediately or connect to it was but I looked him up and once you look him up you'll know exactly who is in. He's been in a ton of things the only thing. I remembered him most for him. He was the teacher in the show. The movie my girl and I'm not sure why remember that but I do anyway. So Griffin Dunne is still an actor to this day. She had another brother. Alex and Dominique studied acting and was very passionate about this career at a very young age and she was already successful by age twenty two. She had acting roles in the shows. Television shows so. I don't know if you remember chips. It was a it was a cop show. I don't remember it. Well I know the movie that Sheppard then movie call chips out.

Poltergeist released in Nineteen eighty-two but unfortunately dominique would never get to see it. Let's talk about what happened to dominate. I'm sorry how old was she at this time at the time. Paul Trick At the time of whatever whereabout. I'm assuming her murderers right. So the Crime. We're going to talk about. We'll be the murder. Dominique Dunne and she was twenty two years old at the time of her murder so she was quite young and just just on the up just on the rise. Let's talk about the crime. Who murdered her? You know well as I mentioned before the crime was committed by someone. She loved and trusted. Dominique met John Sweeney at a party. In nineteen eighty-one Sweeney was a charming up. Comer also working as assistant chef to fame chef Wolfgang Puck at restaurant. Mommy's on and I don't pronounce that eloquently. I'm sure but he had come from as I looked up. Sweeney was from Pennsylvania and he was from a very blue collar family and he was looking to sort of breaking into the La scene and he was doing well for himself he was he was about the same age. I'm sorry he was a little bit older. So Dominic was twenty. Two and Sweeney was twenty seven. Oh time but still young and still In a in a great position at you know again famed restaurant working for Wolfgang puck anyway. They did not date long they met and they said it was like you know it was a chemistry immediately. But they didn't take long before moving in together into a one bedroom house in West Hollywood and I mean I think they're only did maybe six weeks or two months but it also wouldn't be long until they separated because John's possessive and abusive temper would quickly become apparent to dominique and others around her. Dominique reported that John would not let her go to rehearsals alone He wanted to go with her or anywhere alone for that fact. He accused her of lying constantly. He groped her on her whereabouts. He grilled her on her friendships. He reportedly would wake her up and keep her up talking about all these issues that he had with what she was doing it like three. Am when she had rehearsals the next day? She reported that he was isolating her. I mean all the things that she reported by the way are classic signs of abuse and but then there was act- the actual physical abuse that followed because these are you know this isn't the actual physical act that's happened yet so on one incident in Nineteen eighty-two during an argument John Grabbed Dominique by the hair tearing clumps of her hair from her head and terrified. Dominique fled their shared home to her mother's house. Her parents were divorced at the time. Lenny Dominic would divorce and so she led mother's house but sadly John came with flowers apologizing minimizing what happened. It was a y of the bell. Right totally fits the bill of classic abuse and so- Dominique would quickly forgive him and return home. I didn't see what her mother actually said about this. But of course everyone. In retrospect says they wish we knew how serious or I wish we knew how bad it was. Although her Mother did report the Dominique was clearly very frightened when she came to the home in a second incident about a month later and this was in late. September nineteen eighty-two John Grab Dominique by the throat and threw her to the floor where she claimed he tried to strangle her. But a friend actually interceded and likely saved Dominique's life at the time came in to him trying to choke her and Dominique called it. Quits with Sweeney right after this incident. Sweeney left the shared residence and done changed the locks. She was done with him but as we also know. Leaving an abuser is an extremely dangerous time for victims and sadly this would also prove to be very true for dominy so john has left the shared home. Dominique retains it on the night of October. Thirtieth nineteen eighty two just a few weeks after the Split. Dominique and a male cast mate. Were running lines in her home for her upcoming part in the series V. Have you ever heard of V? No that was also one of my favorite to see you know it was an eighties movie about people who it was like aliens at common. They look like humans but they were really reptiles so they would sound like the worst movie I could. It was a series and it was amazing. They still shielded skin off and there. There would be reptiles okay. It was like a phenomenon it was a thing it was a thing was only a couple of seasons but anyway she was rehearsing for the Series v. She had gotten a part and Sweeney showed up at the home demanding. That dominique come outside and speak to him now dominate didn't WANNA go. I mean she. She obviously knew at this point. It was going to be a hassle was going to be a fight but she also had no clue that stepping out onto her own. Driveway would seal her fate. So in an argument that ensued in the driveway. Sweeney became enraged and apparently he hit Dominique and after that he grabbed her by the neck and he choked her to death in her drive and the friend was thrown side or the castle yes and friend was inside and I'll tell you what happened with him. Estimates from the medical examiner are that it took between four to six minutes to strangle dominic to death. Think about how long that actually is. Because we're GONNA come back to that detail will come up again so. Keep that in mind inside. David Packer heard the commotion. And knowing how dangerous sweeney was he called the police and he also called a friend saying that if he was dead tomorrow it was John Sweeney that killed him cheese. He then exited the back of the House and came around to the to the front driveway where he saw John. Basically crouched over a lifeless dominique and John. Sweeney yelled for her friend. David Packard a call. The police which is interesting when the police came so he didn't try to attack. David I would have been. He did try to attack. David and I will tell you David I read some articles and will cite the sources later but I read articles that David took a lot of criticism. For why didn't he? Why wasn't he the one who burst out sooner and Save Dominique? I really don't think that's a fair criticism. Level at someone especially interceding relationships. One comes by and says let's talk outside you jump out of place. It's not your place. I mean. He called the police. He called someone. He went outside when he felt it was safe. So I don't think there should be any blame. Cast ON ON HIM. But okay when the police came. Sweeney quickly confessed. He said that he killed her. And he said something to the effect of allow. I really blew at this time. It went too far. I choked her and then he said about tried to kill myself right after with pills so he said that he basically killed Dominique and then right after he tried to swallow a bunch of pills to on. The scene on. The scene is what I said but he said that he went into the house at some point ran into the house to get pills. That part of his story could never be confirmed his behavior and support it. I don't know if they did toxicology but certainly they couldn't find any evidence that Sweeney took any pills. Dominique was quickly taken to the hospital where she remained on life support until her death on November fourth nineteen eighty two when her parents decided to move her from life support due to the lack of brain activity so she survived for five days. Just so people understand to Dominic Dunn. He wrote one of the sources. Here is a story that he wrote for Vanity Fair. He chronicled the trials of what happened. From the moment he found out his daughter had been strangled was in the hospital but he describes what it's like to see someone on life support what it was like to see his daughter. Oftentimes there's these images like someone was on life support. So they're laying in a hospital bed and it's it's fine. It's like acquaint picture you get. But let me just say in Dominique's case dominic describe seeing his daughter. Her hair was shaved off completely so that a large bolt could be screwed into the top of her head to relieve brain pressure. Her eyes were open and protruded staring straight up at the ceiling but lifeless bruises and swelling marked her neck at some times. Her body would jerk react in a jerky fashion to the life support and tubes were inserted and coming out of her basically everywhere so this is the last image that the done family would have of their daughter. Dominique so I just wanted people to understand that it is not such. It's not a pretty picture at all. I believe that her mother Lenny donated her organs. And maybe dominic was. I know she donated the organs actually believe kidneys and someone got her heart and that was the last act of her daughter. What would happen next would be the act of the parents following through with trying to see Justice Dominique. So what's going to happen now with John Sweeney? So John Sweeney was originally arrested for attempted murder because remember. Dominique survived for five days but when Dominique died the charges were obviously increased to murder. Detective Harold. Johnston would work the investigation and would become an ally to the done done family in many ways. John Sweeney had a public defender Michael Adelson who also had assistance. Though from Joseph Shapiro. He was a private attorney. Who represented Mommy's on the Restaurant and so. He worked for a large prestigious firm. And so I believe that the owner of the restaurant said that he was going to help Sweeney. He described as a young in courteous. Talented young chef. And you're going to cure the way this. This case was framed which is very different than I think. The the reality of it Stephen Barshop represented the state as the district attorney. He had a very good reputation but he would consistently be fighting uphill battles in this case and dominic describes him as someone who was a solid performer and they were glad but he wasn't very warm and fuzzy at first it took them a while to establish a good rapport. It took him a while to give the Dunn's his phone number so they were all easing into their roles. Here sadly around this time to just wanted this kind of a side note but right after Dominic Steph and episode of Hillstreet Blues. Would air and in this episode. Dominique played battered child so her mother had beat her and she was in the police station..

"Dominique what's your reaction to hearing that? And that's fine. I guess it's fine. But it's stupid. Like, I don't completely understand why he would do this. So first of all he is nobody like the name you read what's been rough as burger not even Colbert, despite the fact that there's a tweet and it's stupid because it's one wrong and is strategically ineffective. Ben Rothlisberger has reputation created by Tonio Brown and other teammates of being part of ownership. So by you saying this further alienates him and suggesting that his teammates our kids and somehow been rothlisburger only jed in the. That's so disrespectful to a room full of grown men with their body on the line to get to this point. And it's not helping been is not helping to players. I think who is he's trying to win over by. Join it seems like he's trying to win over Ben Rothlisberger, which is funny because the entire point of Antonio Brown, and that whole drama was that he had special treatment that felt inequitable, but I can relate to this any human can relate to this Dominique when I was in high school, we discovered that a team mate of mine on the Lincoln Douglas debate team was going on L debate dot org ever been there. It's a it's a website for high school debate gossip on the forums under a fake name. And trash talk me. He tried to talk Benner on a radio show under his name. How would any of those teammates feel about that? Well, when I was in the NFL, I understood the NFL that we do like, this whole thing is that the mud all NFL culture idea that they're saying this is ok okay. Tom Brady doesn't do this. The whole thing about NFL cultures. All the players are supposed to be the same. Get we parade around the patriots because Bill Belichick yells at Brady the same way, he yelled at the patriot way. And like, this is not something that you ever see happen..
