"I was going to get to get into the war. So i had to go. What was your impression of then. Colonel doolittle kinda hard. Guys ed scribe real world. Famous aviator all really as a person who is just a straight arrow regular regular guy businesslike as necessary. Did you have much interaction with him before the red oh no he was around all the time. We're training one of the big challenges of in addition to actually successfully attacking the mainland of japan was to be able to get bombers to take off from an aircraft carrier. How big a challenge. Was that well. It didn't happen all at once. We didn't know. I know for some time. Be taking off. From an aircraft carrier. In feel florida we've done short field takeoffs which could have meant anything sound carrier to me probably some sort of job where runways had a short cut much about her there. Anybody knew we were preparing to take off from carrier. I don't know never heard anybody. Say i have any idea. Also chain course feel consumption which indicates some long rights getting airplane as much gases. We could carry also meant a long flight short on and that's about all reaction. I had the training as an engineer. Did you have a specific role in helping to outfit the planes for this mission. So they'd be lighter in ready and other ways no no made sure all those basis or well-covered. My part was just to make sure their permit really and how close to the actual date of the raid. Did you find out what the mission was going to be. Well i think we frisco locked in first or second of april four or five days later we found ours there. Were going to be bombing your parents. And what was your reaction. That wasn't what i hope for but I guess what we're going to do it's been it's been said that many considered this at the time to be a suicide mission. Was that how you saw. It came later initially just going to bomb japan..

How Does When You Are Born Affect Who You Are?

"Does when you were born affect who you are in my econometrics class or talking about instrumental variables and one thing. That has come up. Is that while you may think that the time of year someone is born is a great random variable that can be used to make more robust estimates. It turns out that when the year you were born is actually correlated with things like parents income or mental health outcomes. Is it true that people born at different times of the year different does this mean. Horoscopes are in fact valid. Thanks alkaline so the way. I would think about this. Is there at least two major dimensions. One is that the time of year born or more broadly. The year you're born in what's going on in the world then may have some natural ish effect but then there's a very different dimension which is how the time you were born again. What's going on in the world where the environment can change your outcome. And that gets even more complicated. Because then we're talking about parental behavior and that parental behavior may be pre or postnatal. And so on. I don't know how much your parents or your family care about. The traditional chinese zodiac. But i am curious. What sign you were born under and how it's influenced your life. I am the year of the dog and everybody has good things to say about their year but the year to be is apparently the year of the dragon. I'm not a dragon so my parents. I'm quite sure did not plan my birth around the lunar calender. That's fairly because i'm told by my sister that i wasn't planned at all boy. Okay i'm not going to get into that but it seems as though there are quite a few chinese and chinese american parents who do delay birth to the year of the dragon. Yes because there's a spike in births. Among certain communities across the globe during that year. I find this research on the year of birth according to lunar calendar in cultures that really respect that mind blowing. I remember when my grandmother passed away. This is my mother's mother. Apparently they had to wait for a lucky day to bury her and that was months away so they they waited. Wow there's also some research suggesting that in addition to the decisions like to have a child or one to have funeral that actually life outcomes can be influence because of parents expectations and amount. They invest in their children's education etcetera. But i do know that. Children born in the year of the dragon to chinese or chinese american families that they do get more education. They have better lifetime outcomes than non dragging your children. We did do an episode about this years ago with freakonomics radio but according to that research it is on the parents guide which is basically once. You've got a dragon in the family. You invest a lot in that kid. Is that your understanding. That is my understanding if you are living in a culture where someone says hey. This is the lucky year. And then you're lucky enough to be having a kid that year. Then maybe when you're making decisions about whether one is gonna get extra tutoring give it to the lucky kid right because you know there are dragon but also would there be a little bit of something like endowment effect there like this. Is the child that we created on our timetable and therefore we feel a little bit more invested in this one not so much because they might be lucky because this is how we planned. Oh absolutely. I don't think it's necessarily that you give the child. The extra tutoring because you think the child is luckier. But because their dragons and they're going to do more with that tutoring the research that it made me think about is in psychology and it was by bob. Rosenthal have you heard of the pygmalion effect. Yes my fair lady. Yeah probably more people have heard of my fair lady than teak malian or the pig melon effect but the original play was called pygmalion and that was of course after the greek myth that pygmalion created a statue. That was so beautiful that he fell in love with it. But the plot of my fair lady. You have elisa doolittle who needs to get rid of one lower class british accent. In order to acquire a higher class british accent. And the reason. I bring this up. And the reason why the psychological research was called the two million. It's just that the expectations. Not only that you have for yourself right. Not only eliza doolittle's expectations for herself. But actually henry higgins her teacher his expectations for her. We're going to put the thumb on the scale of her destiny and if he thought that she was going to do great maybe he would act in ways. That would actually make that prophecy. Come true so. These are behavioral components and belief and preference components. Let's go back for second to the biology question. I don't know much about this. I've done a little reading. I'm curious to know if you know more but in terms of biology the month of year that you're born to the season that you're born. I have seen some arguments that to me. Look between week and mixed that there is a strong effect. I read one piece. For instance argued that babies born in the spring are more prone to optimism but also more prone to depression. And i realize they're not polar opposites necessarily but it does make me feel like some of this thinking may be like i said somewhere between week and mixed but i'm not ready to dismiss it in part because there's been so much interesting science in the last ten twenty years on circadian rhythms and how real they are. According to time of day so month of year might also have similar effects. I'm curious if you know or think anything about that. I know very little but it would be hard for me to believe that the time of year that you're born which of course has its own particular is for how long the days were versus the nights and also by the way other things like the availability of nutrients vegetables being in or out of season of course less relevant these days because we can get our strawberries year round but i wouldn't be surprised if any of these effects were huge. I can maybe imagine a small with tranquilly but nothing large because there's so many other things that would swamp the effect of you know it was a six hour daylight day versus an eight hour daylight

"How has food. Tv changed over time. And how has it changed us. All not just us gastropod. That's right. you're listening to gastropod the podcast. That looks at food through the lens of science and history. I'm cynthia graber. And i'm nicola twilley and this episode. We're taking a spin around the dial which sounds medieval but believe us when we say. Tv's used to not have remotes. You had to literally spin odile. Even i barely remember those wild and wonderful days. This episode is supported in part by cabot. Creamery cabot is a co-op of new england and new york dairy farmers who make award winning cheeses with pure rich milk straight from family farms their specialty cheeses include unique flavors like roasted garlic cheddar and their team of cheese graders indirect with every batch to ensure award-winning quality. Go to cabinet. She's dot com to find out where to buy cabot near you there. You'll also find pairings how to videos and delicious comfort food recipes like the best mac and cheese and more the first thing to know about the very earliest food. Tv wasn't actually on tv. It was on the radio almost as soon as a radio came into being in the nineteen twenties in the us food radio came into being. It was a really easy way for programs to be created because they were easy and cheap. They were obvious outlets for advertising for sponsorship for food products and appliances. So that's where we saw food before. Tv was even a twinkle in the eye. Kathleen collins is a librarian and professor at john jay college of criminal justice and she's the author of the book watching what we eat. The evolution of television cooking shows the stars of these very first food shows. Were hardly stars in today's cents. These radio shows were unglamorous. It was all teaching housewives. How to economize and optimize and generally do all their chores. Better one of the not remotely. Glamorous stars was a woman named and sammy who we can only imagine was supposed to be the wife of uncle sam which is kind of disturbing. She wasn't actually a person. It was a program delivered by an arm of the. Usda and the she was not just one person but several different actors around the country. Adopting regional accents similarly a figure. That's much more well known was betty crocker. She actually started on the radio and like aunt. Sammy was played by many different actresses and she was one of the first we. Could i guess call her one of the first cooking teachers in broadcasting And we have some fun you one for. You are cooking lessons. This week is on some new christmas cookies. And besides that with sending seven ethically recipes to order numbers of schools who had indicated that they want the wednesday menu ambassador. I hope you'll be sure to watch for them on. Sammy's show was called housekeepers. Chat and betty crocker's was the slightly more enticing cooking school of the air. That sounds as though it was all about meringues and souffles and all things fluffy which it decidedly was not and then the very first television station came into being in the nineteen twenties though at the time the technology was still super experimental and people did not have. Tv's in their homes yet. Even as late as nineteen fifty only nine percent of american homes had a tv set. Foot made the jump to tv before. Tv even made the jump to people's living rooms so more megan was thirst. Tv shafran her snapple titled Tv show was called suggestions for dishes to be prepared and cooked in fifteen minutes and that demonstrated single ring. Cookery back in hundred thirty six. This is julie smith. She's a food writer. And podcast and the author of a new book called taste and the tv chef and she's british so i will translate for her single ring. Cookery means the kind of thing you can make on just one burner in your bed. Sit which is british for a studio apartment. Thanks for the cross pen translation of my uses as well as my bizarre accident. True also interesting. Megan was doing this. Fifteen minute meal about eighty years. Before jamie oliver's tv show and book of the same title. We have a picture of her filming her show dressed in. What looks like a raincoat on our website. Glamour personified where was i but by the nineteen forties food. Tv show started showing up for real in the us to the shows were cheap to produce and they were sponsored by kitchen and food companies and they were pretty boring. It was a very practical probably rather dry and yet a lot of the airtime was filled with these programs in different markets around the country. These shows obviously targeted at women most. Tv's at the time. Were actually in public places rather than homes especially bars where there weren't a lot of housewives. There was a show actually the first national televised. Tv show was james beard and it started in the mid nineteen forties and despite everything i just said about how most of the tv shows and the radio shows were led by home. Economists james beard was not a home economist. He was a gourmet and he was really all about the food and so it was a little strange to have this show on. Tv in a bar being watched by men james beard was kind of a one off for a long time but still here we go right off the bat you can see a gender divide in food tv women were the ones who were proper and teaching viewers had cook the man a ormond. Just appreciate food for food. Food was a chore for women and a pleasure for men until the only lucas came along. So diani lucas. Like james beard was a bit of an anachronism. She was a cordon bleu trained chef. Who was born in. Britain came from a very artistically oriented family. Do you only had a restaurant and cooking school in new york and she treated the kitchen as her art studio. it was her serious creative outlet. Her recipes were complex and mostly french. And they took a lot of time to make she was also kind of a taskmaster her british accent and her scraped back hair and she did not cut corners. But kathleen says the. Tony did occasionally have a little sparkle in her eye. Like when she told viewers to use as much rama's they liked or needed in their cribs. Suzanne that show was on the evening and prime time and it ran from nineteen forty seven until nineteen fifty-six but she was kind of ahead of her time. I would not be surprised if many of your listeners have never heard of the oni lucas. She just came along at the wrong time for the public. Viewing audience at diani did have a big influence on one particularly important person. Julia child the french chef. I'm doolittle she was a california girl. She was not a spy for the cia before being cooking show guru as many people think she was a research assistant at the oh s the precursor to the cia but she was really one of these happy accidents. She married paul child who had a foreign service assignment. in france. They moved to france and she fell in love with food. And she got herself trained. You know at the core blows school which was really challenging as a woman and she just became. You know a master in nineteen sixty one. Julia published a book with two other. Women called mastering the art of french. Cooking it is eight home and that seven hundred fifty. Two page book provided the kick. That landed julia in front of millions of viewers happen was. Julia was doing the rounds promoting her book and she'd been invited onto a book show hosted by a local professor on w. g. b. h. Which is the boston public. Tv station and she decided she didn't want to just talk with the professor. She wanted to cook. She wanted to teach him how to make a proper french omelette. The professor wasn't a particularly skilled cook in this live tv cooking class but people wrote into the show after it aired. They called julia a hoot and the producer thought. Julia was incredibly well-spoken so gbh gave her her own show. It would eventually become the french chef. The show was a huge hit. It was on national. Tv for three decades and it not only made julia household name but it also kind of launched the modern era of food

"doolittle" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Join us now is Abigail Doolittle. So, Abigail, we like to think of it. It was all about the government here bounce about how much of this is sort of Risk off because they're not sure about this stimulus package. I would say a lot of it has to do with the government and the fact that the stimulus it's a stall the big stimulus that investors and traders had banked on for weeks back in the end of 2020 that would come through quickly. We have this start at $1.9 Trillion, It doesn't appear to be passing any time soon. So on this over the last few days, we have had a little bit of a pause, even unwind of the reflation trade on the day. Right now we have the S and P 500 down just a little bit down 1/10 of 1%. There was a real risk off moment, though, about Ann Hour ago, though David telling you about the jitters investors have when the S and P 500 on the other indexes all down more than 1%. At this point, some of the more reflection sensitive indexes those air down even more, including the banking index, Small cap and the Dow transports behind this, of course, David, one of your favorite topics, bonds. We have the best rally for bonds going all the way back to November, so as yields come back in That is certainly hurting those sectors and areas that had done well on the prospect of big stimulus and reflation. It's fast. Thank thank you so much have a great report in the markets from Abigail Doolittle so that we want to turn to the bite administration. You continue its 10 Day to do list today with an executive order on his buy American policy Today is through what we expect. Welcome now our Washington correspondent Emily Wilkens. I mean, as you point out, in fairness that's not the only executive order. There was one involving transgender participation in the military. But the buy America really goes his economic policy. Absolutely. It's a huge part of Biden's policy to try and strengthen Americans economy now the policy. It's actually similar to one that we did see Trump signed when he was president. But basically what this is meant to do was to encourage federal agencies to buy American products and also specify what American products are because there are some loopholes that allow companies right now to be able to have employees overseas and build certain pieces overseas. But still get to qualify for this domestic benefit. And so Biden's trying to close the loopholes really encourage companies to make sure they're hiring American workers using American factories and then making sure that the federal government will purchase those American made products and Emily. In the meantime, we just heard from Abigail that the markets and business is really paying attention. That stimulus package. Is it going to come? And when is it gonna come? Give us a sense. It felt like it slowed down, maybe a little bit of the week and they started selling it bipartisan group. Upon the Capitol Hill, but it feels like there's getting some resistance. The bipartisan group had a lot of questions for biting mostly, why do we need a $1.9 trillion stimulus when we just passed a 900 billion stimulus back in December? Chuck Schumer came out today the Senate majority leader, saying that he's expecting about one month to six weeks to come to an agreement. Even that might wind up being a little bit ambitious. Remember for the deal back in December. It took them months and months of negotiations to come to that. But the bite administration is hoping that with their election and they're concentrated work with lawmakers on this, they can come to some sort of agreement. There's also been discussion at this point about passing a more narrow bill. Perhaps something that looks strictly at vaccines, which once again is another major priority for the Biden administration. Okay, our Washington correspondent Emily Wilkens. Thank you so much for being with us today. We know what the vitamin station wants for stimulus. The question is what they can actually get. And as we just heard, there's been some resistance, including from modern Republican centers like Susan Collins, who told business Insider quote We just past $900 billion with assistance. Why would we have a package that big? Maybe a couple of months from now the needs will be evident. We will need to do something significant, but I'm not seeing it right now. Biggest through what? What is really doable at this point? We welcome Henry into trays. She is Veda Partners director of economic policy. So, Henrietta thank you so much for being with what is doable in your estimation right now. It's another wee David. I think that there are as many as two separate bills that could pass in the next couple of months here. Time is obvious import theirs, but we've got to keep that march 14th time horizon in the back of our minds. That's what I spoke to moderate Democrats about yesterday. Is that really a deadline for us to use when the unemployment insurance benefits booster payment rolls off? The answer is yes. So sometime in the late February 2 mid March timeframe remains our horizon. I don't think investors should anticipate something moving much more quickly than that. This is really difficult to pull off. Whether you go for 60 votes in a bipartisan bill or you act alone under reconciliation. I think what you'll see here is a two vaccines has a lot of support in a bipartisan basis. The direct payment does also the question is really more of who will get the checks and what the scope will be. You don't see a lot of pushback from even moderate Republicans saying, Oh, no people are fine. Nobody needs more aid. It's just a matter of how much so cutting the Biden ask of 1.9 Trillion in half is a great place to start, and I do think that there is still at least a 70% chance that we get a bipartisan package through Congress in the next few weeks and months. After that, we'll get a reconciliation bill that will be exclusively deficit spending on one of the things I'm hoping investors take away from this first couple of days. It's just appreciating how difficult that is to sign a bill into law. It's really hard so assuming that there will be massive tax increases, either the corporate level or the individual level is similarly unrealistic on I think that that's something that could help investors sort of set parameters for what's to come. So you mentioned two alternates their regular order, as they say, which would actually require 60 votes. As I said, to get past Filibuster in the Senate or doing a reconciliation. There's a difference is they're not in the timeline of those two things one you could do faster than the other. Exactly, And that's a great point. A 60 vote bill you could take up and pass before the end of February..

"And Abigail Doolittle is here with a look. Well, David. It's really pretty interesting because Carnival on the day is certainly higher. This after the company yesterday gave up gave an update saying that they will be cruising again in 2021 somewhat vague, but nonetheless you have the stock up about 2%, however, the real gains over the last few weeks David and not just for Carnival, but for other travel related stocks, as well, such as Norwegian American United Airlines, and as you can imagine, this has everything to do with the vaccine. Reality, the optimism that folks will be back out there some point in 2021. Then maybe there will even be pent up demand for travel. The juxtaposition that is so interesting here, though, David is we had this disappointing payrolls report today, really showing the first signs of what the resurgence of the virus meant, at least in the month of November payrolls coming in at 245,000 versus the expectation Of 460,000 and down from the prior month in October of nearly 640,000 jobs, so and a lot of those jobs in the travel sector, airline workers cruise line operator workers the unemployment above 27 weeks really, absolutely extended as there's a big population of folks again, many in the travel industry. A Z. They remain unemployed again. You have the juxtaposition of these stocks soaring. And yet this real world difficulty. It's hard to get your mind around. But that is what's happening right now. A piece of it, though David really just has to do with the stock piece, because, of course, these travel stocks beaten down on the year. There are other sectors that are beating down to such as energy financials Industrials over the last few weeks in the hope that this would be reopening reflation the trade you see these sectors really starting to gain its investors are looking for the catch up of the sectors that had been so being down include. Thing. The travel stocks, David, you told us earlier Abigail that reflation has indicated right now with the 10 years of living it, So thank you so much to have a go do little for that report on the travel industry up next.

Stock market turbulence could last until the election

"Now it's going to check on the markets. Joining us now is Abigail Doolittle. So when I looked at literally looked like people Buying from which everything have ago. Yeah, real risk on day here at least relative to stocks. Commodities a little bit less so, but we have big gains for both the Dow and the S and P 500 NASDAQ less so I'm not sure that has so much to do with the election last Friday, there were some saying that perhaps last Friday could turn out to be the pre election lo similar to 2016 when you're the two weeks into the election. Down weeks, and then you had a big rally in the election weekend out of the election. What's very clear, though, is we have lots of selling in the tech space that probably has to do with JPMorgan, saying that they're lightening up on their overweighting positioning to a neutral. They expect some of the more cyclical sectors to take hold, and that has nothing to do with the election. They think that will happen. No matter who wins the presidency. What they do say, though, is and this is not surprising that what investors really want relative to the election is certainty that they want to know who is going to win this election and that once that's in place that's going to be a real positive for the markets and one sign of that uncertainty. That you and Jeanie and Kevin were just talking about bonds. We actually have bonds rallying in a big way on the day after selling off last week. Never dull moment, David. Yeah, because it isn't But one thing you follow, I know is positioning. Is that telling us anything are people hedging? What's going with the vics? The vics is actually damn just slightly today, but the vics continues to suggest that yes, investors are heading into the election. The vics has been outpacing the VX N or the tech index, Vicks. Which is pretty interesting visit again suggest that relative to regular volatility as opposed to that mega cat volatility. Investors are starting to bring up the hedge in terms of anything can happen and something else that I've been watching for the last few months, the S and P 500 stuck in this huge range of congestion on there's one line of thinking that says That is in the three months ahead of the election. The stock market is up that supports the incumbent. If it is down that supports the contender, David right now it's on the wire, suggesting that the markets are far more uncertain about the outcome of this election. Then the Poles are exactly the Poles may not be reliable, so we'll find out soon enough. Thank you so much as it's Abigail do little reporting on the markets.

"Dr Chee Hello. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me. Dr Anthony. FAUCI is the director of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also coincidentally went to the same high school as me Regis High School in New York City. Dr. You're a very busy man. I'm so grateful for the time you've given us so. I have many pressing things to ask you about, but I would feel negligent as a sports journalist. If I didn't start with the action on the fields, the Great Anthony Fauci was there to throw out the first pitch and this was not a great pitch. He's an epidemiologist is first pitch on opening day last Thursday. happened. Well. It certainly was a mishap part I had been practising for two days before a walk down that I thought was sixty feet. And it was really probably forty five. And I was throwing throwing in throwing and I got it right. But only was at forty five feet and I kinda hurt my mom because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me. But I said Hell I could suck it up and just throw it the way I'd been practising when I got to the mound. I said Oh my God Sean doolittle looked like he was two hundred feet away. A. So. What I did was I completely changed the form of my throw and instead of just throwing it lobby, get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only. It just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. In terms of the real baseball news this week, it concerns the fact that over a dozen members of the organization tested positive for Covid Nineteen and Major League Baseball has since spawned Marlins Games until Sunday after some teams including the one you root for the nationals they raised concerns about traveling to Miami to actually play. So what's your assessment of how major? League Baseball has handled this corona virus up rick? You. Know I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that. They've done virtually everything that you do. To try to get the goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team when I had discussion with some of the officials of different teams as well as of MLB in general, we went over the different kinds of protocols that they would need, testing and things. One of the things that came up as a big concern is what happens if a cluster of players get infected and how you gonNA handle that with that wind up, not only shutting down the team? Would it then impact on other teams that would be playing? So it was a consideration I think we're going to have to take. On a day by day week by week basis I hope. that it doesn't interfere completely with the progression of this truncated season because the players certainly WanNa play, they don't want to endanger their health that's for sure and the fans at least on TV would like to see it. So I think we're going to have to see what happens over the next few days to a week, but I can tell you that a lot of good faith. Faith effort was put into this by the owners by the play reps by the players themselves. So I hope that this is just a temporary setback and that we can continue the season. But again, the most important thing is the safety and the welfare of the players under the personnel associated and the place family too. Because, if you get infected, you've got to be concerned about spreading it.

Human Speech Evolution Gets Lip Smacking Evidence

Lip smacking mimics the natural pace, acumen mouths talking. The. Findings are in the journal Biology Letters. This phenomenon has been observed before in other ape species who performed lip smacking movements at around five hurts, which falls within a range of mouth, opens, and closes characteristic of all spoken languages namely between two and seven huts, but this lip smacking timing connection had not been made in our closest. Relatives until now mouth and vocal signals with speech like rhythm, Hetero been observed in some monkeys in gibbons and Orangutans, one of our closest great relatives, so the last years had seen accumulating evidence that these rhythm other than something that only talking humans do.

In that great apes in captivity in the wild steel have to reveal all their secrets about human nature in human origins, Numero also notes the variation in Lips. Mac Times both between and within the chimp groups do not appear to be hardwired rather the lip smacking variability likely reflected how individual differences and environmental factors and even social conventions affect how chimpanzees communicate with each other. Even Dr Doolittle will be amazed.

Jeff Passan on MLBPA's Return-To-Play Proposal

"The negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association to start the two thousand twenty season, Continue Jeff Passan reported. Reported last night that the player Ford a counterproposal on Sunday, in which they suggested a one hundred and fourteen game season from June thirtieth to October. Thirty first, which Jeff wrote is expected to be immediately dismissed by the League. The union remained steadfast. The players should receive their full prorated salaries. The Union did suggest possible salary defers than acknowledgment by the players that amid the coronavirus, pandemic and unrest. Flow issues could prove problematic for the owners The players proposal also included the idea of an expand class for two years major league. Baseball's proposal suggests one year postseason that goes from ten teams to fourteen a salary advance of one hundred million dollars split among players during the second spring training, additional commitments to players, wearing microphones in the field and other broadcasts enhancement, and there was an offer to hold events such as an off season, all star game or Homerun Derby to generate additional revenue. This was a hopeful Development Sean doolittle, the nationals. Reliever tweeted out that the Washington major leaguers will provide salary relief to minor leaguers. Who saw their salaries cut last week? Covers baseball for ESPN, and Jeff we just went through the details of your report from last night. I think the most important question this morning is what's next? It's a great question buster because I think what's next is going to be the most important element of this entire thing in that is. What's the reaction of owners after the unions first proposal? And I think you did a great job in your Sunday, notes column of pointing out the fragility of this on account of there, being owners who don't WanNa play in two thousand and twenty. If this proposal angers the the League side owners in particular enough where what is a relatively small block of honors, now suddenly starts to gain a little bit of political traction in trying to convince some of the more moderate owners that this is a lost cause, and it's just not worth playing the two thousand twenty season. Then I think they're actually in trouble, but if if the. door being cracked open for furrows which it was done in this proposal leads to something more substantive and productive. I think something can come together on relative quick order because that's that's how it has to like. If they want to play this year, something needs to get this week and it's on owners right now to come back and really facilitate that after the players offer. Deaf I'm glad that they're talking I. Mean it's a good thing that they're talking because there's been so much time that's passed in the last Three and a half years since the CBA of two thousand sixteen, in which they haven't been talking, but my God they are so far apart. It's incredible to me. The what this is shutdown lake March twelfth thirteenth, and yet it still feels like to use the football comparison. It's like we're at the one yard line. There's about fifty eight seconds to go and there ninety nine yards of field ahead of them when you're talking about the financial issues. Either the safety protocol, and then the challenge of pulling everything together which I'm sure you're hearing the same thing from general managers. That I am like this is not something you can just execute overnight. No in regarding that latter part I assume that that they have known for awhile now. What the expectations are going to be and I I know some general managers that I've talked with said they're. They're trying to get their facilities in order, so you know secondary, club houses and a lot of the things that are in the health and safety protocol. They've at least been trying to start, but let's let's look at the logistics of getting everybody around the country right now. between coded and. And and the civil unrest that's going on travels knock going to be particularly easy and getting people from place to place city city. You don't even know where you're. Joe It half the time when it comes to either get into the city or are you going to be your Spring Training Facility? I mean these these are all open questions right now. but yeah I I would say instead of the one yard line. You've got like both sides in their tunnels right now or in their. I mean that that is how far apart they are, and and the biggest question to me has been.

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the most most anticipated movies of twenty twenty men. And we've been talking all about the movies of Twenty Nine Thousand Nine on our various Oscars awards conversation shows. We need to look forward now. The reason we need to look forward is because new movies are opening and they're not these dingy horror movies that they try to open January third and trick people into thinking might be decent. Here's there's actual big budget studio movies with movie stars this weekend. We have little movie called doolittle and a little movie called bad boys for life. We've seen both of these movies. He's rolling GonNa talk about one today. We'll talk about the other one later next week. Hopefully you will have seen that other one after that but mostly we're GONNA be talking about movies. We don't really know that much about other than the names and the titles and we're talking about why we're looking forward to them. Let's talk about the big picture aspect of movie going in twenty twenty. I'll just say as I've mentioned at the end of the year last year. The little worried about who will people go to the movies this year. Do you think that I'm justified in my concern. One hundred percent. We talk about this on every other podcast that we make now for the big picture because moviegoing has been Ben. I don't even know if I WANNA say in a state of crisis but it has been changing and the way that people consume movies has been changing pretty rapidly and dramatically for several years now but this feels like the come to Jesus Year I agree so obviously twenty. Nineteen was deeply loaded especially by Disney with mega event movies. Not just the vendors endgame not just Star Wars Skywalker but the lion king and Aladdin reboots Dumbo reboot toy story. Four came through. There were a lot of movies. Movies that Disney at least perceived as moviegoing events now in addition to that we got a lot of great fun stuff we got once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite became a box office success. And we'll the four versus Ferrari and did very well. There's always going to be surprises. I would guess that the movies that we're going to talk about here and you're gonNA choose ten and I'm GONNA choose ten. They'll be some some big ASS. Hits hits among those movies but the movie is not the schedule is not loaded like it was last year. I think there will be a distinct or of panic panic around. What's going on at the box office? Pretty much by April or May I think we have our first taste of the panic. That's coming though. Yes yes so this week you and I saw the movie do little which stars Robert Downey junior as Dr Doolittle Let me say this movie is terrible. It is terrible will in a way that I have not experienced in my adult life and I was in a deep amount of pain watching it. I don't think you had negative reaction to the movies I did though well L.. This movie is very bad. Let's just get that affront if it is not a successful movie but I do kind of put on my. This is a kids movie helmet at some point eight and I think I'm not looking to be as rewarded on a deep emotional or cinematic level as you are or once. I realized that the movie is Robert. Downey junior talking to animated animals. Sure here's my thing. This movie makes cats look like grizzly man. Like it's really true. I think that I had a better time doolittle than I did at cats. That's astonishing still worst experience that I've pat movie in like five years. There was no plot and it was creepy people singing weird songs about what kind of cats they are I like I can't I know I've said exactly that five times but I will never wrapped my head around the fact that hundreds of people sought that that was a good idea. The wanting one thing. The cats and Dr Doolittle do have in common is that they are both based on previously existing Ip. There's been not one but two different iterations of Dr doolittle over the years. Of course the very famous nineteen sixty seven version with REX Harrison. And then Eddie Murphy came back as a doctor doolittle of sorts in the I believe in the early outs. This version has had some trouble in the reason. It is so bad ad will the reasons it is so bad manifold. Let's start with some of the production problems so in April twenty nineteen Hollywood reporter had a report about the struggles of the making of this movie. They wrote the new photography lasted twenty one shooting days not including new postproduction work according to insiders and came after an overhaul courtesy of Chris. McKay the helmer the lego Batman movie. Now Chris McKay was not the original director of this Dr doolittle movie which I believe was originally called the voyage of Dr Doolittle. Yes and it was written and directed directed by Stephen Geoghegan Listener. Stephen Geoghegan wrote and directed a movie called Syria which does not in any way resemble the story telling the joke writing the the general disposition of doolittle. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. It appears that Stephen Geoghegan was just a little bit out of his his depth in making a movie like this teach on report. Sources say that it's become apparent to the studio and producer. Susan Downey Joe Roff and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Last fall that the movie budget at one hundred and seventy five million dollars needed some surgery. Geoghegan is known for his Oscar. Winning work on layer dramas traffic and Suryana is his first time tackling visual effects heavy production. That was also comedic in tone own. Self they bring in these new folks Chris McKay among them. Also I believe the writer of the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles series was brought in to Do some script doctoring. Bring didn't help I don't think we need to recap necessarily story. It is technically a voyage. doolittle does go on a voyage. Why do you think they've changed the title? Because I have no idea. Maybe they're just hoping that if all you hear is little. Then you'll think of the other. Innovations I have Dr doolittle and then go see a movie when you say you. Who Do you mean? I people with children people who go to the movies. I don't know. Would you recommend this movie. The parents parents with children. I don't know what your life is like or what your parents rearing is like. I really don't. I don't know what you're looking for in a experience with your your children. We don't have to talk about the entire movie but can we talk about a couple qualitative issues with the film. Fire Way you turn to me about twenty minutes into this movie or maybe it was like seven minutes but it felt like twenty. It felt to me like nine hundred. And you pointed out aghast that Downey junior performance was dubbed not just align here there but literally his all of his voice work the entire film the entire fell. It's very obvious as you're watching the movie s and I also have to say the dubbing is. I turned back to you and asked whether other Robert Downey junior is supposed to be Scottish. or whether there were some troubling racist elements to his voice. It really is all over the place in not got a great way. So the dubbing does not achieve anything additive to the movie. We can only speculate what had happened. My guess is Robert Downey. Junior is an adventurous actor and he likes to. He likes to make choices certainly felt like he made a choice in the original shooting of this film used a certain voice or accent and then they the production decided. This isn't going to work now. It's possible that there was even a sort of production error like it wasn't properly recorded. Yeah that'd be incredible mismanagement of this movie. That's in play. But the other actors that appear in the movie and we should say a great many quality actors appear in this movie up chief among among them Michael Sheen doing his damnedest to play a compelling villain and my beloved. Jessie Buckley shows up in this movie. With two lines of dialogue. She sleeps on a bed. Basically throughout the film Talladega how. That is Jessie Buckley until about sixty minutes. And it's very strange. Antonio banderas shows up Antonio Matarese Oscar contender Antonio Banderas. Who is fine but none of those figures seem to be dubbed? They all seem to be using their natural speaking voices. And there's no eighty are in play here so the whole thing is just absolutely confounding and it is highly distracting as you're watching the movie every time you see Dr Doolittle onscreen and he is on screen all the time because he is the titular character. You're like why. Why is the track sink? Not Correct with the film. This is a film released by a major studio. How did how did this? Hundreds of million dollars spent on it. I don't really know it's it's it's staggering and an unfortunate You wrote down here that the dramatic climax of this movie is literally a Dragon Fart. Which is true spoilers? I guess I often as people in my generation do misuse the word literally. But in this case it's literally what what happens. It is literally what happens and I just I I was in and I was in pain in the eightieth minute of this movie. I was like God Damn Emmett. I'm supposed to be alive in the world. A little community harrogate that his bad movie. But I think I said to you afterwards. It was no less sensical to me than say Melissa sent. And I think I probably turn to you more times during the listen to it was like what the hell is happening opening. And what are we serving like the children of America

inning off of Sean Doolittle let's put runners at first and third Todd father came to bat little the lefty sense is the parents the two two pitch men's radio network how he rose all of the call Todd Frazier ties it with a three run Homer three batters later Michael Conforto wins it and the Max will never lose again this is absolutely fantastic but this is the number one top two or three trending topics on Twitter you have the Mets the hashtag LF GM which Alonso man you came up with this and dude you just gave that to everybody you could be making so much money on this if you Pat did that idea because they'll all these elegy of teacher to coming out you're not getting a died seven years the other problem they'll talk about it before you and I as we're sitting here and spit balling the idea that he'll be able to sign inscription dry because he's going to go through yeah rookie of the year do here's the problem every other one of these guys gets a sign that same inscription yeah yeah does he get a condo Taj mall other everybody else there signing autographs they're getting some Bucks for that he's not getting a child now why should trade Marcia Patty but yeah look we have LF GM is trending do little is trying yeah this game was huge it was it was really exciting and obviously I'm excited the Mets won but there are two things that stick out for me from this number one add a beaten the route he took to the ball and can for does walk off double it should have been a fly out I he came in and he looked like he didn't really turn to go after the ball as fast as he could the ball bounces at the warning track over his head I mean that's inexcusable that's a ball you have to get but mainly Dave Martinez left Sean Doolittle and one clearly he didn't have it tonight first better my Dinning was a double second batter was a single third batter was Todd Frasier's all right into the second deck in left field fourth batter was a single at this point you go get him and say you know what sorry not your night Fernando Rodney were warming up we're we're we're we're gonna find a way to get you out because this is not your night but they left him in to throw a hundred pitches when clearly he didn't have it that he gave up two more hits and then Conforto hits a to the wall on him you know I see all the time if you make changes in as as a as a manager you go to the bull pen a lot when you don't have to you're eventually going to find the guy who's having a bad night right if you if you keep us awhile to take him out after two batters because I like the match up here you're gonna eventually find the guy who doesn't have a stuff but the inverse is true you gotta realize when a guy right away okay you don't have it and you're out of the game and Sean Doolittle to said you know you're right I don't have it were walked off and everything's fine instead the nationals walk off with an absolutely brutal and a hugely mentally deflating loss yeah I mean you talk about a a crushing defeat as you're trying to stop the momentum of the mats hold on me in the least extend the game at that point right we're tied get a runner on CV could survive and I mean obviously you've got a closer who's got experience right he's not new to the job we're talking twenty plus saves three straight years four times in his career a guy who's not going to melt a guy who's not going to take it and have a psychological block now it's not a first year closer it's not a youngster right guys often times managers won't let a guy get out of the fifty inning after struggling right don't rush out there and Sam's I know they got to learn to pitch through that stuff and likewise with your closer if you got a gala do little he makes Mashal a light pole my take a bat to the water cooler on the way if he's particularly frustrated and if you watch the replay of the Todd Frazier already should be thought that the fact of the matter is he's been there done that it's August ninth you'll live to see another yeah yeah yeah I mean these are just goes that's a life because I don't have it I'm coming out I get the mental and and what what it looks like when you're taking your clothes are out and you're giving the other team omentum but all of their kind and knocking him all over the park so you know it's not your day right side time to go to somebody else we're not seeing eye singles are dribble orders find a guy who it is his day read that you did not know hammer the hell out of the ball I mean the no seeing eye hits no errors nothing silly hearted balls and then again the the Frasier home run we'll make sure to tweet out video of it because it's absurd Fox Sports radio the chase and spread still with my best friend my karma now as is our tradition here on the show and it's

"This is the Doolittle raid and do little and his fifteen colleagues. They bombed Tokyo and other cities and they're racing across the sea of Japan trying to reach China. They plan was to get his far as the fields to Chow, which is in Chinese occupied territory. They're fighting against the imperial Japanese army for many years they've been war for five years. However, once they're over the sea of Japan, they do calculations and realize they haven't got enough fuel James at this point. Everybody's calculating they have no way to turn back their expectation is that they will crash in the see what were they thinking before they picked up the tail win. A lot of these guys. It was they were thinking first off from the time. They took off from the hornet to what was going to be like over Japan. And so now they've safely made it through that part of it. Now, they're actually the real, hey, we made it we've Japan, and we might not be live long enough to tell people about it. That they suddenly are realizing that there got this huge distances huge open see that they've got a cross they're literally flying on fumes at this point. And and they might not have it. And so a lot of these guys they're praying. You know, they're they're constantly running the calculations seeing where they stand with their fuel. And then miraculously day pick up tailwind. They pick up a tale. Went about twenty five miles per hour tail win, but this is a twin engine aircraft and it's loaded with fuel. And so the calculation as we can get close to the Chinese coast. They're coming in now at night. Remember everything's twelve hours off they wanted to come in in the daytime. So they could find their way across the Japanese occupied part of the coastal lands of China. They some do and let's follow Doolittle because he's lead aircraft. He was first off of hornet. I over Tokyo Doolittle calculates that they're going to reach generally into the true Chow area. They're going to go as far as possible. And then bail out they're going to bail out at night. Eventually are going to bail out into a rainstorm his decision to send his crew out was at at this point. Did he believe other crews would be following his lead because they were not in radio communication? What was he thinking about the other crews we have to remember this? These guys are closing in on China at this point and their fuel lights are on. They they not only are they facing the deteriorating weather, which they can get it starts to rain, heavy fog, and what they're also coming across an area that's incredibly mountainous and so- mountains, literally climb up about ten thousand feet. And and there is simply looking for gravel runways and data talked in these valleys and so do little realizes coming in low on fuel and whatnot nights. Falling weather's is tanking out on that the idea that they're going to be able to see these runways and get down safely to them is pretty much an impossibility. I think he I think there's no doubt do little as the most experienced aviator without a doubt of any of his crew members. He's. Also going to be first one coming in these the first one to hit Tokyo and have gotten out. There's no doubt in his mind that his crews gonna face a similar experience that he's facing if they can even make it that far. And that's the thing. He doesn't know at that point. He is gone in bomb Tokyo, he's escaped. He's made it to China. But he has no idea at that point where his mentor they made it safely out of Japan. Whether they're behind him. He just simply doesn't know we do know that eight of the sixteen made it to eastern airfields before they bailed out and their planes crashed one chose to go north towards Russia. They were told not to go north not to not land in Russia. Why not because Russia was fighting the Germans at this point. What was the prohibition? The Russians had signed a neutrality pack with the Japanese and so the Russians in fact, I had really wanted to go to Russia instead of China because the distance from lot of stock the port there to tell you it was only six hundred seventy five miles. It would've been a really easy flight, but the Russians wouldn't allow it and they didn't want. They didn't want anything that might jeopardize that neutrality because they're fighting on the other side of Europe against the Germans at that point in this what opened him up to a two front war. And so it says much as little wanted to be able to go there simply off the table today. Made that decision really they were over over the Japanese mainly to go ahead at that point and into divert instead of even trying to make an effort to get to China. They do land successfully in in Russia for more ski cry. They're immediately surrounded by Russian soldiers. They just want fuel to take off again. However that is that is not going to happen. And they begin a year long plus adventure inside. The Soviet state, and we will follow them the eight planes do receive an airfield about one casualty going down to or lost. However, we're gonna follow the three the two aircraft that three aircraft that crash. There are three that run out of fuel before they reached the mainland. They all land on islands Ningpo island is one of them. That's bad out of hell that's pharaohs crew. Hallmark crew ditches at win shoot China on the coast and ruptured duck Ted Lawson who's the author of thirty seconds over Tokyo with the role of Jimmy Doolittle played by Spencer, Tracy, and if you've not seen it I recommend it. Let's follow Lawson's crew. They ditch at sea at Shang Chow in the serve and they're badly injured. One man is not his name is Thatcher. Thatcher. Is there crewmen? I believe he's an enlisted man he becomes their savior the Chinese arrive. And at this point, there's no re. Reason to believe any of them are going to going to survive. I believe one was had both arms broken one had a very badly injured leg and Ted Lawson had his left leg ripped open. He'd lost the teeth on one side, and he was cut about and they had no antiseptic. So at this point Thatcher is a hero and later on his silver, star wise, James. Well, he's yeah. There they as you said they guys crush and they suffer horrific injuries had lost lost nine teat. I mean, the gums actually came out of his mouth when the other men was scalped when he was thrown out of the cockpit. I mean, these were very serious horrific injuries in miraculously the young gun. Dave bachelor doesn't receive anything more than a bruise it. Really? And so he ends up. They all end up getting they crash land right on the coastline in the shallow water. They all managed to struggle out to the to the shore. And he finds himself faced with four brutally injured Philip flyers. That are now in his care. And they're on an island off the coast of China's they've gotta get from this island to the mainland and then overland to a hospital. I mean, this is a job that's going to take several days in the help of local Chinese guerrillas. In fact, the guerrillas get there that night there. Some locals of sort of help them out of the surf, and they have them in this hot near the beach and the guerrillas get there, and they they look and see how badly injured. These men are. And they see that law that that was not injured, and they say that that's why don't you come with us. You leave these guys behind and you come with us. And you know, he looks at his guys and he sees how badly injured they are. He looks back at the girl isn't he says, no his job is to stay there and take care of these men. And so he alternately does that and take several days in which he doesn't sleep. He has to tend to their injuries. He's got tend to their needs like food and water. I mean, he really ends up being the role not just of garner, but nurse doctor caregiver all of those things rolled up in one. And it's a pretty incredible story the two planes that crash and are captured we need attention to those because the drama becomes tragedy. Green hornet green hornet is captain by dean hallmark who is one of the eighty men who was executed by the Japanese in a horrific decision by the Japanese leadership green hornet. Cap crashes at sea it Wenzhou, and they're turned over right away by the Chinese. Fishermen is that who turns them over to the Japanese? Yeah, they they basically get sort of handed off their big or rescued by some locals, and but they're in an area again surrounded by the Japanese and they're dependent upon these local to try and help them out, and you know, in a couple of days, the Japanese show up and essentially handed over at that point that's five men in the hands of the Japanese. Now, we go to the other crew that's captured. This is bad out of hell and bat out of hell. Cap crashes short of this Ningpo island, either leave off the coast of China. That's William pharaohs plane, and they're also turned over very quickly to the Japanese forces. The and they are is the crew five men turned over was their casualties in and out of hell, yes. It's actually the the the green hornet offers to to death. So green has to dead. They are drawn. Fitzmorris. Yes. Right. And so all of that out of Heller, surrendered all those guys come down, and they actually bail out and parachute down near Nanchang, and they're all captured within about twelve hours. They literally come down right fields and things like that. And by about lunchtime. The next day on the nineteenth. They're all into the hands of the Japanese about point. So we have sixteen aircraft. All crash none landed three crash onshore offshore and our and two of those crews or captured two or casualties two of those cruiser captured one crew is flown to Russia and eight crews have successfully bailed out over Chinese occupied territory, and they will successfully leave China will follow them, but will most especially follows the cruise in the hands that's bad out of hell and green hornet in the hands of the Japanese who are monsters.

"doolittle" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio

"One if you withheld Doolittle tax back in two thousand eighteen the IRS might give you a pass on the penalties. So the tax agency said just the other day that it would waive the penalty for tax payers paid at least eighty five percent. Of their tax liability prospectively for two thousand eighteen. Pretty cool normally in order to avoid the penalty for underpayment you have to pay at least ninety percent of what you owe for the tax year in question or one hundred percent of the tax liability from the prior year. Now, there's another caveat to that. If you make more than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars you have to have withheld one hundred ten percent. The tax liability from the prior year. But the IRS has been reminding us that we need to check our our w fours for twenty eighteen and make sure that we have withheld a sufficient amount. There are also urging you to check your withholding for twenty nineteen because this eighty five percent rule may not last for all that long. Right. That's for twenty eighteen only. And then they also say if you qualify for the relief, you'll need to complete form twenty to ten titled underpayment of estimated tax and make note of the waiver on the form. So do a little quick check with your accountant, hopefully, helping you out a little bit to find out if you have withheld enough money for this year. Now, most of us are probably going to be in pretty good shape. But not all of us. Because while the tax Bill helped most Americans in some cases in particular, those were they had high mortgage interest, a high home equity loan interest, a whole bunch of dependence high property taxes, high state income tax Ma-maybe paying more taxes. So at least, you know, now that you've got a little bit of leeway from the IRS. All right next on the docket pension plan. Sponsors warming up to annuity. Buyouts? I'll get to that in a minute. But I do want to get to these other stories. I that is this annuity buyout thing is huge this whole idea of risk transfer that these major pension companies are doing.
