Pick a Plan and GET AFTER IT

"Leadership means firmness not harshness or bullying understanding not weakness justice erase the freedom humaneness not intolerance generosity not selfishness pride. Not Egotism so little quote for you kick things off. This is coming very I ran across it the other day and as I ran across it I saw some of little bit of the dichotomy leadership in there and it just caught my attention. And it's a quote General Omar Bradley General with a good amount of name recognition but a general who kind of flew under the radar sometimes because he was competing with some some big names. You know he's competing with General Patton. He's compete with General Eisenhower. He's competing with General Montgomery so he kind of flew under the radar sometimes even though he does have the Bradley fighting vehicle named after him which is a awesome machine but he absolutely was a well regarded general in his own right born in eighteen. Ninety three in Randolph County Missouri worked as a boilermaker figured out he could get a free education by going to west point so he went to West Point graduated in Nineteen fifteen same years. Eisenhower by the way he was a really good athlete. Baseball Star could've played pro ball but chose to be in. The army chose to go and do his commitment to the army. One thousand nine hundred fifteen. You're probably thinking World War. One W W well. He actually didn't go to World War One and World War One. There were mining disputes in the unions in the in the minds up in Montana and they had to activate some army units to send them up there to guard the minds. And that's what he did. He did that for a little while. And then he did go to unit that was getting ready to deploy to World War One. The Spanish flu came which everyone seems to know about the Spanish flu. Now and there then there was the armistice and he didn't deploy so he didn't get any combat action in World War. One thought that that might hurt his career but he stayed in anyways ended up teaching tactics at the infantry school fast forward through the peace years may general in one thousand nine hundred forty two assigned the eighty second division the Twenty Eighth National Guard division eventually worked under General Patton as the deputy in charge of Second Corps and then took it over himself led the campaigns in Tunisia and Sicily. Ike Eisenhower selected Bradley to command the First Army during Operation Overlord D Day Command. He commanded the most troops of any general. Us General in history when he took command of the twelfth on weaker. One point three million troops to little decentralized command. Better come into play right there. Continue with all those troops to push through Europe until the fall Germany. We covered Ernie. Pyle on this podcast. Podcast number thirty nine. His book brave men. It was the heavies for my favor. Lines Ernie pyle nicknamed him the G. I. General because he was kind of a laid back down to Earth Guy didn't make a spectacle of himself. After the war he ran the VA for a while. The Veterans Administration I ever chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During the Korean War retired in nineteen fifty-three after thirty eight years of service I found day. The Internet is amazing. I found any evaluation. You know we talk about the evaluations evaluation in the Marine Corps evaluation the navy evaluation. I found an evaluation of Bradley written by General Patent. Pretty cool because it shows it shows what type of a person patent was just in the way he wrote this thing so it says subject efficiency report through commanding general NATO USA APO five thirty four to add adjutant General War Department Washington DC name and grade of General Officer reported on Omar F Bradley Lieutenant General Period covered one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen forty two months in eight days duties performed commanding general to core one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen something unclear manner of performance superior F- Physical Activity Superior Physical Endurance Superior Knowledge of his profession superior for what command or duty would you specifically recommend him and army and then what opportunities have you had for observing him during period covered intimate daily contact. Does he rendered a willing and generous support to plans of superiors regardless of personal views. In the matter yes which is a very interesting topic to cover mean you think about what they've got in their physical duty not knowledge of his profession. What job would you recommend? Does he give generous supports to plans of superiors regardless of his personal views. No matter so this guy's going to back you up. The answer is yes and ten of all general officers of his grade. Personally known to you. What number would you give him on this list? And how many comprise your list and patterns answer is number one. I know all of them. Further remarks deemed necessary. None signed G. S. junior lieutenant general. Us Army commanded. So that's pretty awesome review. The interesting thing is if you know anything about the history of Bradley and Patton. There's some interesting dynamics. They first of all had very different personalities. Patent was you know flashy and go ego driven in a lot of ways and and Bradley was not and there's some quotes I pulled from patents journal Journals About Bradley. So it's interesting that he can have these right in that glowing like evaluation about him to try and get him promoted but at the same time here are some things he said about him. Bradley's to Conservative. He wants to wait until we can all jump into the fight together. By which time half our men will be. We'll have the flu trench foot. I wish he had a little more daring. Another one. Bradley is a good offer. Buddy utterly lacks it too bad. The IT Factor Echo Charles. Next one brag is a man of great mediocrity on the other hand. He has many attributes which are considered desirable. In general. He wears glasses which I have no idea I have no idea why. That's cool to be a general glasses. He has a strong jaw. He talks profoundly and says little and he is a shooting companion of our present chief of Staff. General Marshall also. He is a loyal man. I consider him to be among our better generals

Coronavirus testing must double or triple before U.S. can safely reopen, experts say

"Corona virus is still overwhelming the American healthcare system. But here at the start of a new week there is a growing focus on recovery and what it would take to get us out of the house back to work back to school. Back to shaking hands again. A panel of four dozen economists social scientists lawyers and ethicists agree now. The country must dramatically increased testing before any reopening can safely occur. It's all part of what this bipartisan. Blue Ribbon panel calls a roadmap to pandemic resilience. Danielle Allen is a lead author and she joins us now from Harvard's Shafran Center for Ethics Doctor Allen. What's involved here so big picture is we need a massive ramp-up of testing tracing unsupported isolation so finding people who are positive for coveted tracing their contacts warning their context making sure they get tested when people have to go into quarantine or be isolated retreated. They'd be supported There's job protection that care packages yet access to countries and so forth during that period of isolation what does it mean to ramp up like that it means go really big It means five million tests a day. Not where we've been which is more about four hundred thousand two week right since really talking about big ramp up. Its moment for Candu America to really show up and missile to work. It almost sounds like you're describing a Marshall Plan for the United States. You can think of it as a Marshall Plan you could also think of it as Eisenhower's highway infrastructure Building all those roads reds across the country and this is really going to take. Everybody said we need the federal government but as for state governments and there's a role for city and county leaders and officials so at the end of the day. Contact tracing is going to be something happens on a local level and this is a lot bigger than say just getting everyone's temperature taken at the door before they walk into the office. This is bigger than that. This is about a disease containment disease suppression so really. It's about identifying who has the infection so that they can be treated and isolated prior to spreading it. One of the biggest challenges with Kobe is the number of people who are asymptomatic carriers so estimates are ranging Hard to zero in on a number but twenty to forty percents of people who have the virus are asymptomatic as one of the things. We've all been really surveying our heads against is the fact that the guidance instill that tests should just be symptomatic people. That means you've got a whole lot of people out there spreading virus around. We haven't been able to do anything about it so far. It's been about three months since the country's been living with Corona virus and we've tested one percent of the population. Is this doable? It's absolutely terrible. I mean it's an interesting thing that everybody's worried it's doable. The question is not whether it is just. How is it doable? That sequestering should be asking and they're really two parts to the how so there's an existing supply chain for testing and has a lot of choke points even with its existing choke points it could definitely ramp up capacity so with the existing supply chain of people who make swabs people who do the processing of tasks and so forth. We ought to be able to get up to two million a day if we organize it. Well if we kick in with some serious coordination driven by the Federal Government and federal procurement in addition though there's an innovation pathway to scaling up even further so one of the biggest choke points is really just swabs go up people's noses and the fact that when you stick swaps up people's noses. Everybody involved has to personal protective equipment. P. p. e. A mattress gets to be a really bad complicated enterprise. The good news is that just this past week. Rutgers was approved for a test and there are other spin tests in the work so we ought to be able to have a way of doing testing. Doesn't require P P. I'm a match and permit a pathway to ramp up but again that's GonNa need. Investment in coordination from the Federal Government's. Take those things that are technologically possible and real already and scale them up to the level of mass production and mass distribution speaking of investment. How much is this going to cost? Well when we think about costs let's start by remembering what the current situation is costing us so collective social distancing collected quarantine is costing US three hundred and fifty billion dollars a month. Okay got him over that three hundred fifty billion a month and we see the massive unemployment numbers. What will this cost fifteen billion a month? Okay so over two years of doing this. You can imagine that we'd have to spend somewhere between a hundred and three hundred billion so hundred to three hundred billion over two years as opposed to what we're currently losing three hundred and fifty billion a month's

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Wasn't just an external one. There was a genuine threat of Soviet espionage in the United States after all Klaus Fuchs was a German physicist working on the Manhattan project in Los Alamos and was supplying the Soviets with nuclear secrets. The rosenbergs had also been convicted of espionage. Eisenhower's vice, President Richard Nixon had spent his years in Congress. Attacking Communist infiltration in the United States he especially went after Alger Hiss a prominent. State, department official for being a Soviet spy. The man who define this age of paranoia was the infamous. Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. McCarthy, who enjoyed high approval ratings from the public claimed several times to have lists of government officials who were communists. He publicly accused officials at the highest levels of government of being Soviet agents, usually with little to no evidence, the most absurd example was his attack on George. Marshall Eisenhower's mentor, and one of the great heroes of World War Two. This era of fear and paranoia defined the early Cold War. But. The war wasn't always cold. There were times when hot wars breakout at by nineteen fifty to America was well into its first hot war of the nuclear age. In nineteen fifty, the communist government of North Korea, invaded anti-communist South Korea. The Truman administration feared that the fall of South Korea so soon after the fall of China would mean the spread of communism all throughout Asia. It viewed the conflict as just one theater in a global struggle between the free world and the Communists world, and it remembered the lessons of appeasement just before world, War Two that appeasing Hitler only invited further aggression too many. Americans the Communist. Invasion of South Korea was further proof that communist bloc led by the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China was pursuing global domination. And it was true that both the Soviets Ama- Chinese were eating. The North Koreans, so Truman lead an international effort under the United. Nations to repel the invasion. Although General Douglas. Macarthur was able to push North Koreans back. The Chinese intervened invaded the Korean Peninsula. The Chinese succeeded in pushing UN for back south, and resulted in a bloody stalemate in just three years. The United States had over thirty thousand combat deaths less than one decade after World War Two. When American citizen wrote the President Truman quote in Heaven's name. What are you doing? The blood hasn't dried from World War Two. While running in nineteen, fifty two eisenhower announced that he intended to end the war by going to Korea. Those words electrified the nation and gave it hope that peace was around the corner. Less than a month after his election on December. Second Nineteen, fifty two eisenhower arrived in Korea, he inspected the troops and met with American commanders. Some Advice Eisenhower that the war could be won. Generals Mark Clark and James Van. Fleet suggested the use of nuclear weapons in expansion of the war against China, could lead to victory. Now might strike you as alarming that anyone would advise the use of nuclear weapons, but this was the reality of the Cold War. It was something that General Macarthur talked about in Korea just before. President Truman fired him, and it was something that would come up time and time again as we'll see during Eisenhower's presidency, the Cold War was full of unprecedented dilemmas. In, Korea American and Chinese forces engaged in combat, Americans were confident that they could win after all they had defeated both the Nazis, and the Japanese in partnership with the Allies of course. China was a third world country. Surely China would be an easy opponent. But America was unprepared for the Korean War especially since it had demobilized after World War. Two and the Chinese had an enormous number of forces bay virtue of sheer numbers. They pushed back and that's how the stalemate happened. The US now faced a dilemma in order to win. American might have to intensify the war effort sending more forces to fight. But some wondered well, if we have nuclear weapons, why don't we use them? I mean otherwise. What's the point of having them? And as the body bags piled up, more Americans kept wondering. Why are we letting our soldiers get killed if we have a weapon that could end the war once and for all. Nuclear weapons were the most terrifying weapons ever devised by man, but you can see why some people might at least be tempted to think this way to think about using the bomb especially, if you fear the spread of communism, and if you're sick and tired of a bloody stalemate, but of course there were fears for what this would mean if we use nuclear weapons against North Korea or against China, the world could be revolted by their use. America's prestige could be damaged forever. The fallout from nuclear warfare could lead to unprecedented collateral damage, and what if the Soviet responded given their relationship with China in North Korea. They had hundreds of thousands of soldiers in Europe. What if they retaliated by invading our allies in Europe? What if they blockaded and our presence in Berlin and now that they had the bomb? What if they used it against us or our allies? While most people shuddered at the thought of starting a nuclear war with the Soviets. Some felt that this was the time to do. In the Cold War was relatively new Soviets did have the bomb, but they were few years behind the United States in nuclear firepower in the development of the hydrogen bomb in the means to deliver it. Why allow them to catch up? Why not hit them? Now with everything we had so that the Soviets would never get to the point of competing with us. After, all didn't the West wait too long to stop Hitler wouldn't more lives been saved if we had taken on Hiller earlier was stolen. That much different than Hitler. and wasn't Stalin even more dangerous than Hitler now considering he had the bomb. Of course the situation was more complicated than that Hitler and Stalin were both totalitarian tyrants and ruthless killers, but their circumstances weren't exactly the same. Still most people.

"Own! White the Eisenhower was a man of humble beginnings? He was born in eighteen ninety in Denison Texas. The third of seven boys his father owned a store when it failed, he later worked on the railroads as mechanic and then at a creamery. His mother was a Mennonite and later a Jehovah's witness she was also an avowed pacifist, Ironic, considering her son Dwight's future career path. The, Eisenhower soon moved to Abilene. Kansas young white had an idyllic childhood. He worked hard at his. But he also enjoyed the outdoors. You'd go hunting and fishing for hours like his predecessor Harry Truman. He became an avid reader especially on military history something that would serve him well throughout his career. Of His. Childhood, Eisenhower would later write quote. I have found out in later years. We were very poor, but the glory of America is that we didn't know it then. Eisenhower's family lived frugally when his father's general store failed, the family was forced to tighten their belts that lesson. The importance of living within ones means stuck eisenhower for his entire career as we will see. This lead Ike to consider going to either the Naval Academy or West Point, since both offered free college degrees. He was beyond the age limit for the Naval Academy. So in nineteen eleven. He became a student at West Point. At West Point Eisenhower was an average student, but he did well in sports, playing for the Varsity football team and taking up fencing and gymnastics. After graduating in Nineteen fifteen, he married a woman. They me doubt. Soon America entered World War One, and like many young men of his day Eisenhower hoped to get in on the action overseas, but he would end up being disappointed. Instead, he was given assignments in the United States. He was stuck training tank crews that never even saw combat. He never got to fight abroad during the war, which left him feeling bitter and depressed. Throughout the next couple of decades, Eisenhower worked, either with or for many of the men who would emerge as the top military figures of World War Two. He collaborated with George Patton on new ideas for tank warfare ideas. That were way ahead of their time. He served under General Fox Connor. Who has an intellectual mentor to him? Through Connor I studied Clausewitz and other military classics. By then Eisenhower was a serious student and had come into his own intellectually. From nineteen, twenty five to twenty six, he attended the command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth and graduated first in his class of two hundred forty five officers. Eisenhower later worked as General Douglas Macarthur's military aid in the Philippines that experience taught him two things. First how to handle relations with foreign ally and second how to handle the man with as massive and ego is General Macarthur. When. America entered World War Two in nineteen, forty, one general George Marshall Hired Eisenhower, as a war planner, Marshall had an eye for talent and realize that Eisenhower was one of the best. Many had maybe the best. Thus began Eisenhower's meteoric rise within a year. He was running the allied operation in North Africa, his success. They're impressed president. D Roosevelt. The military began planning for the critical invasion of France to liberate the European continent from Hitler's rule. Many observers believed that Roosevelt would put Marshall. In charge of the invasion, an FDR knew that whoever would lead that invasion if successful would be remembered as the great American military hero of World War Two. He Felt Marshall. Deserve the honor and recognition, but he also wanted Marshall by his side. And Roosevelt knew that Eisenhower had considerable skill in military planning in maintaining coalitions. By December nineteen, forty-three FDR had decided that Eisenhower would command the invasion known as D Day. Eisenhower would now be leading the largest seaborne invasion in world history involving over two million men. The president announced the decision in a fireside chat in December of Nineteen forty-three. The commander selected leave the combined effect. From these points. Is General Dwight, D Eisenhower.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"And the best to be expected can be simply statement. The worst is a comic rule. The best would be this. A life of perpetual fear intention a burden of arms draining the and labor of all people a wasting of strength. That defies the American system on the Soviet system or any to to achieve true abundance and happiness for the people of this earth. Every gun that is made every warship launched every rocket fire signifies in the final from those hunger are not fit those who are cold and are not this world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers. The genius of its violence the hoops of his children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber. Is this a modern brick school? In more than thirty said it is to electric power plants each serving town of sixty thousand population it to find fully equipped hostile fifty miles of three. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels a week. We pay a single destroyer with new homes. That could have housed more than eight thousand people this is. I repeat the best way of life to be found on the road. The world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all. Then he puts them under. The cloud. Threatening warranted is humanity hanging from across the via. Eisenhower did not see defense spending as a stimulus to the economy. He saw it as a burden. Something that took away from American prosperity and the thriving of American civilization after all increased defense spending meant higher taxes on the American people and it could also mean higher national debt. It's fascinating than a military man. A man who spent his career rising in the army was talking about the defense budget in negative terms. Perhaps Eisenhower was the last president who could do this. He wasn't a professional politician nor was he insa political ideology. He was a national military hero and therefore he had the clout to espouse policies. That contradicted the desires of either party and could combine aspects of both to this day. There are many who agree with. Eisenhower's warnings on Defense Meeting and hope to reduce the defense budget. Eisenhower would have counseled us to be wise about what we spend money on. But this didn't mean. He didn't recognize the Soviets as a threat. The whole point of his frugality was so that the US could compete with the Soviet Union and more cost effective way. There was no moral ambiguity for Eisenhower. He believed that America was a positive. Moral force and the Soviets were an immoral totalitarian government. In Eisenhower's is it was the Soviets who are responsible for the Cold War starting in the first place. Eisenhower stated Soviet government yelled at vastly different vision of the future in the world of its design. Security was to be found not in mutual trust and mutual aid but in force you. Jeremy Subversion Rule of neighbor nations. The goal is power superiority and all costs security was to be sought by denying it to all of the result has been tried to for the world and for the Soviet Union. It has also been running. The imagining of Soviet power alerted free nations to a new danger of aggression. It compel him in Self-defense. To spend unprecedented money and energy for women's it forced them to develop weapons of war now capable of inflicting incident terrible punishment upon any restaurant in August of nineteen fifty. Four Eisenhower would say that quote. The central core of the great world problem is the aggressive intent of international communism. So while Eisenhower feared the cost of the Cold War he still maintained that the American people had a job to do. He may have disagreed with troms methods of containment. The increase spending the perimeter defense but not with its goal the Soviet Union had to be contained. But how how do you reconcile the paradox of spending in the Cold War with the goal of winning it to answer that question? Eisenhower decided to explore all possible options. While making use of the best minds he could find to that end. He initiated a project Alarium and it was named that because it was hatched out in the Celerion Room at the White House. It involved convening a group of brilliant men from the federal government and academia and it happened in the summer of nineteen fifty three as a critical exercise. In that exercise. The men were divided up into three teams with each team. Exploring three major strategies under consideration team was led by George Kennan considered by many to be the father of containment. They were tasked with defending. Truman's current policy. Containment team be was tasked with taking a tougher line against the Soviets and focusing more on using US nuclear weapons as a deterrent and team. C was also tasked with taking tough line and the Soviets with a focus on an aggressive policy called rollback. Instead of merely containing Soviet expansion. The team would look into whether it would be possible to push them back for more. They were the entire. Solarium project was so secretive that it remained classified until the mid nineteen eighties. Out of the project came a new strategy. That would replace an AC- sixty eight. The new document was NFC. One sixty two and the new strategy was called the new look and it was a dramatically different view of containment. The goal now. The Cold War was to win by not bankrupting ourselves. This meant getting America's fiscal house in order through major cuts in defense spending. This was a time when defense spending took about two thirds of the entire federal budget. Compare that to now. Were defense is less than about fifteen percent which by the way includes both discretionary and non discretionary spending so that was the first element of new look. The new strategy also meant staying away from foreign wars as much as possible like the kind truman got us into in Korea. After all are very expensive it was kind of like a race to frugality where the most cost. Effective side wins. But how are we to maintain deterrence encounter the Soviets if we were reducing defense spending? The answer came into words massive retaliation. Nfc One sixty two said that the United States would maintain quote a strong military posture with emphasis on the capability of inflicting massive retaliatory damage by offensive striking power. But if the military budget was slashed. Were would that power come from again? An Se 162 reported that the United States quote will consider nuclear weapons as available for use as other munitions essentially the Eisenhower Administration called for greater reliance on nuclear weapons rather than conventional forces like tanks ships planes and personnel as a way to deter communist aggression whether it came from the Soviet Union or the People's Republic of China adding to the credibility of this shift. Eisenhower early in his presidency had taken control of the nuclear stockpile away from the Civilian Atomic Energy Commission and gave it to the military again to some. This was terrifying prospect. Did this mean that. The United States threatened to use nuclear weapons whenever Russia or China acted aggressively. So if another career happens somewhere. Did this mean that this time we would respond with nuclear weapons and if we really were using nuclear weapons to deter adversaries were we actually willing to use them and what would happen if we did use them. What about the international blowback what about radiation poisoning and the damage to the environment? And what if we weren't really willing to use them? What would happen if we threaten to use them in a crisis? Either against the Soviets of the Chinese but they were willing to call our bluff. Wouldn't our credibility diminished then to Eisenhower. The policy of massive retaliation was about reducing costs in fact in nineteen fifty-five. Eisenhower would cut four point. Eight billion dollars from the defense budget. Four point one billion of those cuts came from the army but it was also more than that again. He feared that the alternative would be to outmatch the Soviets everywhere countering their every move whether it meant building better tanks or confronting them wherever they acted aggressively as we said earlier. This was the path to national bankruptcy at least potentially and it gave the Soviets the initiative to choose where geographically or figuratively fight but eisenhower had a different strategy in the words of Vice President. Richard Nixon quote rather than let the Communists Nibble us to death all over the world and little wars we would rely on the future primarily on our massive mobile retaliatory power which we could use in our discretion against the major source of aggression. At times and places we choose.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Expansion of the war against China could lead to victory now. Might strike you as alarming that anyone would advise the use of nuclear weapons but this was the reality Cold War. It was something that General Macarthur talked about in Korea just before president. Truman fired him and it was something that would come up time and time again as we'll see during Eisenhower's presidency the Cold War was full of unprecedented dilemmas. In Korea American and Chinese forces engaged in combat Americans were confident that they could win after all they had defeated both the Nazis and the Japanese in partnership with the Allies of course China was a third world country. Surely China would be an easy opponent but America was unprepared for the Korean War. Especially since it had demobilized after World War Two and the Chinese had an enormous number of forces bay virtue of Sheer Numbers. They pushed back. And that's how the stalemate happened the. Us Now faced a dilemma. In order to win American might have to intensify the war effort sending more forces to fight but some wondered well if we have nuclear weapons. Why don't we use them? I mean otherwise. What's the point of having them? And as the body bags piled up more Americans kept wondering. Why are we letting our soldiers get killed if we have a weapon that could end the war once and for all nuclear weapons were the most terrifying weapons ever devised by man? But you can see why some people might at least be tempted to think this way to think about using the bomb especially if you fear the spread of communism and if you're sick and tired of a bloody stalemate but of course there were fears for what this would mean if we use nuclear weapons against North Korea or against China. The world could be revolted by their use. America's prestige could be damaged forever. The fallout from nuclear warfare could lead to unprecedented collateral damage. And what if the Soviet responded given their relationship with China in North Korea they had hundreds of thousands of soldiers in Europe. What if they retaliated by invading our allies in Europe? What if they blockaded and attacked our presence in Berlin and now that they had the bomb what if they used it against us or our allies while most people shuddered at the thought of starting a nuclear war with the Soviets. Some felt that this was the time to do in the cold. War was relatively new. Soviets did have the bomb but they were few years behind the United States in nuclear firepower in the development of the hydrogen bomb in the means to deliver it. Why allow them to catch up. Why not hit them now with everything? We had so that the Soviets would never get to the point of competing with us after all. Didn't the West wait too long to stop? Hitler wouldn't more lives been saved if we had taken on. Hiller earlier was stolen that much different than Hitler and wasn't stolen even more dangerous than Hitler. Now considering he had the bomb of course the situation was more complicated than that. Hitler installing were both totalitarian tyrants ruthless killers but their circumstances weren't exactly the same still. Most people feared what Stalin could do especially since he had successfully imposed his grip on Eastern Europe and supported communist movements around the world. They also feared the worst case scenario in all of this that the Soviets would respond in kind to nuclear attack against itself or its allies with a nuclear attack of its own and then a nuclear war might ensue. The specter of nuclear Holocaust hovered over everything. These were the debates that were raging on in the early cold war in Korea would be the first decision for the new president despite the advice from Generals Clark and Vanfleet. Eisenhower refused to expand the effort in Korea. He rejected their request and move forward with negotiations for now. America's president would not go anywhere near using nukes in Korea but the temptation to use them or to threaten their use with continued to rise throughout. Eisenhower's administration on January Twentieth Nineteen fifty-three Dwight D Eisenhower. At the age of sixty two took the oath of office in became the thirty fourth president of the United States fully aware of the immense burdens. He was undertaking. The new president began his inaugural address with a prayer. My friend before I begin the expression of those thought that I deem appropriate to this moment. Would you permit me the privilege of uttering a little private prayer of my own and I asked you? Bow Your Head Almighty got as we stand here at this moment my associates in my future associates in the executive branch of government. Join me BESIKCI. That foul will make full and complete dedication to the service of the people in this throng and their fellow citizens everywhere give us we pray the power to discern clearly right from wrong and allow all our words and actions to be governed thereby and by the laws of this land especially we pray that are concerned shall be for all the people regardless of station race are calling may cooperation be permitted and be a mutual lane of those who under the concepts of our constitution whole to differing political faith. Show that Oh may work for the good of our beloved country and glory. I'm in in the weeks. After HIS ELECTION EISENHOWER SKETCHED OUT AGENDA FOR HIS ADMINISTRATION. There were two overriding concerns. One immediate and the other long-term the immediate concern was the Korean War in the plan to negotiate an end to that war. The long term concern was the Cold War and how to contain the Soviet Union. Things are right for change. America wanted to move past the stalemate of the Korean War but there was also big news. Out of the Kremlin Joseph Stalin. The totalitarian dictator of the Soviet Union the Godfather of the Communist Movement for almost three decades died of a cerebral hemorrhage on March fifth nineteen fifty-three there would be a new Soviet leader. Although it would take some time to figure out who won the power struggle with new leadership in the White House and the Kremlin. There might be a new way forward in the Cold War in our previous episodes. We covered president. Harry Truman and his containment strategy. It was summed up by George Kennan. Who said that quote? The main element of any United States policy toward the Soviet Union must be that of long term patient but firm and vigilant containment of Russian expansive tenancies. It was a middle ground between those who just wanted to negotiate with the Soviets and coexist with them and those who wanted to roll the Soviets back pushing them from where they were already established. Originally Truman headed here to what was called a strong point defense strategy. He felt that it would be too expensive and difficult to stop the Soviets everywhere as powerful as America was it cost too much to defend giant. Swath of international territory encounter the Soviets wherever they expanded whether it was by military force or aid to communist groups around the world and it would also give the Soviets the initiative to allow them to bogs down in conflicts around the world. They would be able to decide where the conflicts would start if we promised to stop them wherever they expanded they could start them in areas or arenas that played to their strengths and our weaknesses. The strong point defense strategy called for providing economic assistance to allies at certain points around the world so that those allies could become centers of military and economic strength that way those allies could stand up on their own feet and share in the burden of containing Soviet expansion. This strategy was made manifest in the Marshall Plan and the Truman doctrine which provided economic aid to Greece and Turkey. It also meant that. America wasn't on the hook for defending every country threatened by the Soviets or the Chinese and it would detract from the Soviets ability to dictate where a conflict or competition would occur while the Korean War changed all of that although Korea was not originally considered a strong point the possibility of millions more falling under the orbit of communism called into question America's commitment to its allies. The Truman Administration. Now believe that the defeat of South Korea meant a victory for the Communists and decided to commit forces to save it by then a new strategy document known as NFC sixty eight had been in circulation. It rejected strong point defense and called for a dramatic increase in the defense budget. Truman had originally requested thirteen billion dollars for defense in nineteen fifty. Nfc Sixty eight called for increasing that number to forty or fifty billion almost triple what was originally requested. It called for increasing both conventional and nuclear capabilities and replace strongpoint defense with perimeter defense.

Author Colson Whitehead on 'The Underground Railroad'

"Colson. Whitehead's new novel. The underground railroad is already making a mark as a work of fiction that combines history and metaphor telling a story about slavery in America in new and surprising ways whitehead is the author of many books including zone one and Sag harbor and he's also received a macarthur genius grant and many other awards Colson. Thanks so much for being here. Shurmur pleasure so this is not your first novel. Obviously but how many novels have you written? And the last one was about poker this is my sixth and I have to nonfiction and last nonfiction was about Playing the world series of poker and having to bone up on a game and and trained for a couple of weeks and crash course in order to play at the annual big game that was the no Hustle Noble Hustle. Yeah so how did you get from the Noble Hustle to the underground railroad? I'm always sick. Like whatever style is working in on the book and the last book was first person a lot of jokes. I saw it as a humor book. That's tried to cram as many weird jokes in as I could With the underground railroad. Well it's fiction. Try to have humor in my books but obviously you can't really have as many jokes for page in a book that slavery so that so that was good. My last couple of novels had a ton of black dudes walking around thinking about things and it seemed Have a female protagonist and mix it up and never explored a mother daughter relationship before so it seemed good for me to break out of sort of a mode. I'd been did part of the idea of this scary you to brighten the voice of a woman example multiple her. I mean I think That's your job. I mean. It's Nice if people say oh you got a female characters voice and I just think well. That's what you signed up on when you pick the book and said as female character like if you have a plumber and Drain you go. Wow you were the UNCLOG that drain. That's why you call them and That's why he did it. So it was hard to tackle slavery and get into the Research and really contemplate and immerse myself in the horror. Hadn't only people walk around thinking about slavery in a deep way all the time and Obviously exposed to route. I was very young and studied it in college but I had immersed myself in slave narratives and a very long time and now that I'm older you know affects me more than it did when I was a teenager in my early twenty s and so I'm realizing how much the true ours was not to submit my protagonist in her companions to Dante and terrifying. It also seems that I mean we're roughly the same age that depictions of slavery obviously there was roots and there was a beloved but in the last decade or so have almost reexamined it and in a way that's a lot more fearless and visceral and that you're kind of fits in well with that Well I think You know taking liberties with historical record. I mean I'm playing with time. Once Cora gets deep into her journey but that first section mergers George. I want to be as realistic as you know. I can make it. Which means a lot of brutality? And it means impressing upon the reader the psychological tortures that they were forced to endure so for those who have not yet read the buck. Let's just talk a little bit about the the story line We start off as you mentioned in Georgia with Cora. Court is Sixteen or seventeen year old girl Owners didn't keep track of their slaves. Birthdays she has no idea how old she has. Her family has gone. Her mother has run off years before. And she's a an orphan astray on the plantation. A man named Caesar sold down South From the north he has contacts underground railroad so they light out to the north availed themselves of his contacts. And that's when the book changes I guess I had this idea that you know. What if the railroad was an actual literal railroad would apprentice not so much of a full story? Was that the first like one of the first things that you came upon when you were yes about. Sixteen years ago I was thinking. Oh isn't funny like when you're a kid and I hear about anything other little subway and that was like one little well actually on twitter. I'll search for the entire book and it'll be teenagers in school. Like Oh missy stupid. She thinks of underground wherever and as always like a couple of those a day. So I think it's a common Fantasy the notion and then I was thinking mcdan- to a story like what if every state Georgia South Carolina North Carolina. She goes through is a different state of American possibility. And so I was thinking about how each different character and the first place she ends up is South Carolina which is seemingly benevolent paternalistic place. Where a lot of programs for black social uplift jobs programs housing North Carolina is a white supremacist state. Where black people were outlawed and not allowed to step over the state line and so I was trying to sort of tweak American history to expose various tensions and I mean did you sort of create certain rules for yourself like well. This is going to be this part of me. Maintain kind of historical accuracy and integrity. And I will place these sort of discreet. What could have been or what might have been or what was then and not there within Georgia where we meet on the plantation going to be very realistic and traditional depiction of plantation life. And then the first gets the WHEEL ROAD. She looks up and sees a skyscraper and that's As a writer that's why I'm GonNa let it rip and have fun and go crazy and and the beaters notions and it's a you know. Obviously a big signs of the reader that we're not I think you know. I thought the Book Sixteen years ago and initially in for many years each state took place in a very different time frame and so South Carolina would have been like in this very stylized future place with with gene experiments and enslaves bread for different roles. And it would have been an fantastic. Gestures would have been much more broad and a sort of cloud atlas type style and so you're in a different world and the North Carolina chapter was going to some sort of fifty suburbia Myst- sort of Eisenhower Era America. That was the default for many years of the Voice of the book and a structure and then has to be read and as mentioned in the review. Glad to see it a hundred years of solitude which I read when I was in high school and had been an impact on me and I read it a few months before I started writing this book and it just seemed what if I just toned it down and didn't have to have these broad gestures ever sort of my default setting. There's a section in the book where she's a living exhibit in a museum and she acts out scenes from a plantation and a slave ship behind glass for the museum's patrons and I feel like five years ago would have been a ten page. Like huge like setpiece announced like two pages. It's interesting because I think just in the paper today. There was a photo from one of these museums. Where you know wasn't the Museum of Living Wonders but place where they reenact an earlier incarnation of America and you know and there were two African American people dressed up in costume. The first world's fairs you know often had an jungle natives and garb Dancing around to fit some some some sort of idea of darkest Africa Their various African pygmies were you know paraded For the delectation of American audiences you know once I decided not to make a historical novel and play with Time. Allowed to bring in things like that. Which occurred in eighteen fifty but were part of America in the late nineteenth century and the various things about eugenics and the Holocaust which I bring in. That's novel eighteen fifty but they ranked true and so I think another rule of besides concision was stick to the truth and not the facts and so There seem to be a truth in that museum. Section and where core funders in North Carolina that. I wanted to be loyal to even if it didn't actually

Tehran I'm delighted to be here into Louise. I really appreciate when our authors teach us about our own history and sometimes that history includes troubling times until this book takes us right to the heart of what termination the threat of termination losing the ability to say that we are a sovereign nation. Your characters take us to this moment in so I'm set the scene for us a little on just how much it's impacted not only the characters in the book but of course your own tribal nation. What would you like to say about termination? Well first of all I. I BELIEVE. Termination was a long time in preparation. You know when you look back through the history of what was happening just before you see that there was a big housing Bob. Postwar housing boom so termination came out of The the narrative of dispossession The government really wanted some very large stands of timber and those were on the cliff and the menominee reservations and they were among the first terminated. So there was five that were on the first light and turn on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Band of Chippewa was one of them. So it didn't come out of nowhere. There had been some plans in the making and they got the perfect interface with two houses of Congress under Republican control and also the President Eisenhower Republicans so they had a sort of a clear shot termination at that point and the person who is the commissioner of Indian affairs at the time was a guy named Dillon s Myer and he had presided over the incarceration of Japanese American people. Right right during the war. So we have this Guy Dylan Myers. Who's all set up knowing exactly how to he? He was going to relocate everybody right that was the plan. That's that went hand in hand with relocation and then there's Arthur v Watkins who who was Passionately for termination. He had grown up on Allotment land that went into tax forfeiture and his family. Got It so he. He's the other person the main person and then Then there's the people who suddenly got this notice that your tribe is going to be terminated or emancipated. The word was you. Get your freedom. That's how it was couched. Those are the phrases. Did that make you feel it? Being compared to this that you are now mandated. You no longer have to be a native. It's it's so it's so it's so of all of our times I mean this is the language that is used when Dispossession is the real motive. flowed out some high-sounding kyw principled words and let people think I mean. They thought they were going to pull this over a native people right and not. My grandfather had an eighth grade government boarding school education but he got it immediately and he and I think most people did but the the the kind of shock is that this kind of rhetoric would come out with the expectation that native people would not even understand that there was nothing to emancipate that freedom meant freedom to lose all of their their land and their their treaty guaranteed privileges as long as the grass grows and the river. Shell slow you know that those words would be would be meaningless because Both houses of Congress had voted to abrogate treaties that have been established since the very beginning of this country

Trend Forecasting - Connecting the Dots Around Us by N26 Head of Product

"So dual-track discovery and delivery. This is probably familiar to many of you. The Concept Being Donald Track. Agile the idea that we in product need to not only focus on how to prepare teams for one step ahead for what's coming next in the next sprint or the next quarter but also keep an eye on the horizon. What's further out there? That's going to affect us that we might not know how to make tangible today. And I don't know about you but I found myself more times and I would like to admit with the distribution. That looks a little bit more like that. Not only does it not feel good. It's dangerous and the reason can be exemplified with simple Eisenhower Matrix for things. That are urgent and important. It's not to get buy in from stakeholders or to convince her team. We need to work on something or for you to even figure out what has to be done. These are your incidents for what you might need a post mortem. These are your releases that are coming up and you've got to make a deadline in order to get something through your APP. Regression test not easy to get buying and pretty clear that top priority list for things. That are urgent but not important. This is where the classic product skill delegation comes in is another team equipped to do this better than us. Doesn't their service handle something like that? We try to delegate as much as we can for things that are neither important nor urgent. We tried to get rid of them all together and we might mark them in. Jura ticket as won't do and comment. Please talk to me if you have any questions but for things that are important but not urgent. We don't always take the time and carve the space to focus on them and this is bad because when we don't know what's coming on the horizon we might actually find ourselves working on things that are neither important nor urgent just because they're quick winds and they're easier to understand and to articulate to our teams and so I want to focus today on the upper right quadrant how to carve space for things. That are urgent but important. But not urgent. I believe that product managers can focus on that urgent but not no important but not urgent work by carving space and using trend forecasting tools and techniques in order to future proof their products at Lisa the Barcelona School of Design Engineering where I studied a program on research for design innovation and a cornerstone of that program is in trend forecasting and before. I started that programming. I thought that trend forecasting was basically something like this little more than reading into a crystal ball. Or maybe shaking tea leaves or coffee grounds things that you do on holiday because they're exotic but not necessarily a way to make a case for what you should build next but quieted my inner skeptic and I started to dig into the curriculum and what I found was that the reading materials and the coursework and the projects that is doing in that program or not on the Typical Products Circuit. These are not books that you find tons of medium articles that the tech community talks about all the time. These are things that are a little bit more fringe in nature. And I like to. I found because I realized that trend forecasting is inherently evidence-based with the balance of quant. And I thought that's Kinda like product. Maybe there's a common denominator here that I wasn't expecting and so before we dig into trend. Forecasting tools and techniques that product managers can use. I wanted to share with you. Three things about trends. These are the three things we should know. I don't mistake. Trend with trendy cabbage soup. Diet might be something that you find on a morning talk show but it's probably not here to stay because the next time that some other fad diet roles in this one will be old news not a trend fashion choices. That seem like a great idea in the moment but upon reflection a few years maybe months later you look back at photos like what was I thinking why did I wear that. Not a trend and toys that spike into popularity. Actually the fidget spinner debuted in the early nineties but it claim to fame was in two thousand seventeen in the middle of the year around. May and it didn't even make it through the holiday season. 'cause was old news by by Christmas. Not a trend so don't mistake trend with trendy so what is the trend? Then if it's not the things that capture the headlines of best friends of twenty twenty well it's a manifestation of change and this makes sense when we consider that we would call this a trend line. A trend line moves in a clear direction. And we know where it's going. It's something that articulates to us where things are headed as the impact culture and society and certain industries. And it's no surprise that we'd then would call fidget spinners not a trend that doesn't look like a trend line to me what is a trend. Then looking for a recent example to understand the local market here in the UK is the love for slurp Vietnamese soup. We can see here a steady trend. Yes there are seasonality dips from May to August make sense. You don't want hot soup but FAA shows us that over the last sixteen years. The demand is on the rise at least by search query people being interested in expressing their interest so trends are the sustained manifestation of change and we can notice trends if we look out a bit more carefully for signals signal. It's simple it's an indication of a situation and they can take many different formats. We'll go through some examples. Here's a way luggage. They raised one hundred. Eighty one million bucks through their suzy round so far and they came out founded in two thousand fifteen. They're designing travel luggage for the modern traveler. Smart Design and sleek years later. We see a kickstarter campaign for nomadic backpacks. It raised forty four times. Its intended goal. Sneak on the exterior. You have no idea the functionality. That's hiding within it and Kara sport the pioneer of Ath Leisure bags which are convertible to help people. Mostly women go from gym to work to dinner two drinks. Now what are these things have in common well? They might seem very disconnected but if we look a little bit closer we can tell that these three examples although at different points in time over the last five and a half years show us that there's huge consumer and investor appetite in hyper functional but really elegant products. You would have no idea what's inside because it looks so nice. And so back to the Great. Formatting how can we use trend forecasting tools and techniques at twenty six to make sure that we we build important but not urgent work at an twenty-six so I'm not going to walk you through all of the different frameworks. We use many of them. Should be familiar to you here. In this room marking jobs to be done understanding them through hypotheses. But what I will talk you. Through is five tools and techniques that we used in trend forecasting and the first one is sorting out those signals. So if we receive signals from all these different places around us. If you're slack looks anything like mine in my teams. You're constantly sharing articles things interesting. Check this out such and such just raise money or such and such just got acquired. It's hard to capture that and make sense of it and if we want to be present in our meetings and dive into our focused work then we can't just read everything that comes to us right away but it's not just about what share with you. It's also the things that you go out and find for yourself so looking what's up. What'S UP ON PRODUCT HUNT? What's gaining traction there or even traditional publication? What's the headline news today? The market's hit a record high. These are all signals. And if we aren't careful they can become noise so we use a pretty low tech technique here which is just creating. Trello board organized by Category. Where we store what's going on so in the actual truecard. We have links so we can go back to it and find the details but we organize them by their headlines and this is great because we can go back at will. We don't have to scour the internet or review. Which Slack Channel. Did Somebody share that with me. We can just take a look here and easily. Organize everything now that we've gathered those signals and we've organize them a bit more systematically. We can identify relevant trends. I'm going to walk you through some examples of the things that might seem tonight. I are focusing on right now. Last Fall American Express released. Its new green card packed with a slew of new benefits. It's also made of recycled ocean. Plastic at least for the most part and for that package of new benefits. They've raised the price fifty percent for the subscription month later bunk out of the Netherlands. They launched their own green card ninety nine years a year subscription and for every hundred bucks you spend. They plant a tree within two months. They planted forty thousand trees.
