"To kind of not apply as much and they have their own style that works for them. But there's there's certain things like. I said that that will cross the board. You gotta have a vision. Got to have a strong set of values right you gotta you gotta be able to communicate effectively and whatnot but then in the army rangers like they're a little bit more top down and the enlisted are going to be much more expecting to receive orders as opposed to in the seals figuring out on the fly right because he may not have time or those orders might never come. I'm reminded of examples of different sealed leaders. I've had on my podcasts and it always comes out that anytime there in a joint operation especially guys who are like dev grew working with rangers for an example. The deputy guy you know is just sitting there watching us platoon. You know kind of like an saying nothing right but being prepared if you see something that's out of whack to insert his guidance or to provide some support whereas you know his ranger counterpart the major lieutenant. Colonel is like directing every movement of his guys in the field and how the ranger would look at the seal. Like how come you're not leading the rangers. Say how come you how come you're micromanagement shit out of this. The yeah yeah pressing. I don't know. At least. I think in the conventional forces whether they be army navy air force marines. There's a standard operating procedure for everything. And you know what. I learned in naval special warfare. Is there is no normal situation so you can't have an s. o. b. for every single thing and that's where the you know the the collaborative problem solving you know comes into effect than theory kathy. Why that's why. The seal special ops type leadership is so valuable right now for everybody in the world that earliest for for everybody is dealing with voca corporations who are undergoing great change. Everyone government's going going great change so it's a mindset that we developed that happens to be particularly valuable now in probably in the foreseeable future. I think you're right. Yeah i think. I need to do a solo cast on that. Lets us coming up next. You got your phd and you. You got them spec ops low-intensity conflict right at what is university oklahoma. Know about that. Like why did you get there. Well it was. It was home so when we came back home on. Tony did a a clerkship for judge back in it was the my original plan. I retired and i spent a year. You know as a contractor working for the joint special operations university. And i thought that was gonna be my trajectory. I saw that Folks that had a phd something beyond the master's degree. Were making a whole lot more money. So i had the gi bill on my thinking. Was you know what. I'm just going to take a break. I want to go back to school on. Knockout the phd. Which is an arrogant statement in. Oklahoma was a major university that was close and so i started on that trajectory with the idea that i would. I would go back to work for the government in some capacity back to jay. Sal that was the original plan. Jason was a great place. So what kind of took you off course. Well i think education changes people and i became aware a naval special warfare. You're you're surrounded by you. Know elite individuals physically elite mentally always willing to roll up their sleeves. And i think. I became aware you know being in the military that military bubble where you've got based housing. You've got healthcare Base dodds schools. You know for your for your kids. And i became aware of the first for the first time that you know the rest of america is not necessarily like that and so you know there was a lot of individuals. Young people joining teach for america. Hells teach for america. And so i learned a little bit about its mission and i thought oh my god. You know here these. These young people willing to jump into the buzz saw. That is the problem with inner city in public education and the achievement. gap here. I am drawing a flow retirement. I'm secure who's an attorney. This is something that i should do. I should be willing to roll up my sleeves and and help solve this this national problem and it also allowed talking. Challenge my wife we. We decided that we can do that. And so i. I applied for teach for america and got accepted and off to institute which is their version of boot camp. It's it's about two months long. And i was starting to turn gray at the temples already i was. I was in my forties surrounded by all these very young very idealistic individuals in teach for america. Said okay where would you like to go and be in the navy guy said well wherever the the greatest need is and so Okay great we're gonna send a new orleans louisiana two thousand nine Right after hurricane katrina in two thousand ten of the city was still rebuilding. And what would you like to teach wherever the greatest need is and so. I went on the special education at an alternative school which is where the relation has been disengaged from employment education. It due incarceration. Due to a teen pregnancy fainting number of reasons some had been disengaged. You know for two or three years after hurricane katrina Didn't go back to school. And so i. I did that for three years. And then spent a year with the department of education the state of louisiana department of education or in the truancy issue and then moved to dc. With teach for america's national staff. So i spent a total of five years with teach for america right if.

Oh wow i went. Officer candidate didn't have an rotc program at colgate or nyu norway's even thinking about it but that's curious when we were talking about that. I was thinking to myself.

I'm gonna to get a billet with a guarantee to be you know to go to seal training after off kennedy school and they had two of them in that regard that they gave out that year and i got one.

Rotc was set up for service aviation. And submarines those where you three pipelines very. We would have a few that went into the supply corps but But not many. It was mostly a you.

Pretty small class actually start on one hundred eighty five. We graduated nineteen. Wow they're going to get the numbers down below twenty somehow. Yeah but i. I can remember looking left and looking right and some of these guys were just massive and here. I am five foot six. And i think time on my two hundred and thirty five pounds. I'm i'm with the wrong group of people as you know. The other thing i noticed is as training started some of those great big guys Muscles were with. I wants to quit right mccarron late because they'd never done anything hard before while. I think that's really interesting point Surprising a lot of people to hear but that was my experience as well as our experience also with it. And i know you you've experienced. Coaching seal fit event. The more muscle mass. You have unless it's trained properly if you've trained muscle maths master like hypertrophy. Which is like bodybuilding. It does not serve you well in a town. Ration- likes you know like buds and those people end up getting robbed milo sus and really just burning up and have muscular stamina so you gotta have the right type of muscles if you're going to have muscles and you know and you don't have to be a big burly dude like you said you were part one of the smaller guys in some of the you know the shorter guys were some of the best performers of michael's right and of course we anecdotally call them this murph crew which would pass today's mustard.

What were some of the biggest in interesting leadership lessons. Great the great thing about buds says you know they'll get you know the finder weakness in those instructors. Big dig dig and probe in probe in probe I was not you know real fast in the water. So i always struggled with the time swims. I pass them all but always just barely. I guess the minimum passing time wasn't good enough. It wouldn't be the minimum. My strength was the o course. Did real well there but you know it was. It was Buds buds was a trial. And you know just being pushed every single day but following you seeing some of the best dog on leaders night ever seen up in the lap. Point certainly. Didn't see them in the surface navy. I i remember when we were doing. The underwater swam and some guys were struggling with it and ryan zinke said. Let me show you. How this is tom. Ryan zinke courses a former congressman and the secretary of the interior. I think he's running for the senate right now of not just saw him set. Next time on the plane out to wyoming. He was heading back to montana.

Along the coast from long island british. General william tyron had come to destroy the arms and ammunition stockpiles with over two thousand men. Curdle ellington had to assemble the four hundred militiamen in the county to defend themselves from the british. The problem was the militia had been disbanded for the winter and hadn't yet reassembled. The record is in clear on what happened next either. Civil volunteered or her father asked her but either way. Civil set out to warn the residents of nearby towns and to assemble the militia. She supposedly grabbed a stick and set up with her horse at nine pm with their sticks. She prided the horse and used it to knock on the doors. Of all the houses she stopped at all evening. She wrote around putnam county warning the citizens and calling the militia to assemble all night long. She called out. The british are burning. Danbury through the darkness of night she wrote a forty miles or sixty four kilometers. She took a circular route through the county visiting the towns of carmel mayo pack. Ken cliffs and farmers mill before returning. Home herreid wasn't just long. It was dangerous now. Not only were there loyalists in the region but there were british troops and a local group of outlaws known as skinner's plus. It rained that night and she had to do most of the rides soaking wet when she got back home in the morning. She was exhausted and soaked but she had done her job. The militia was assembled and they were able to drive general tyron back to long island. Sound civil was congratulated by our neighbors and supposedly by george washington himself just as a point of comparison. Symbols ride was three times longer than paul. Reveres she did it in the rain and she did it during the war. When there were actual enemies about paul veers ride was done just before the war started and there wasn't any danger from the british yet.

And, you know, being for me, like, being a revolutionary thinker is someone who must be someone who is fearless. You must be somebody who lives with integrity and does all things with excellence. When you're revolutionary, you're not afraid to be do or think different than other people around you. And I think that was something that I learned at an early age. I mean, I was very different. You know, it was the anomaly in my neighborhood. You know, I was one of the only people in my neighborhood to go to school and to get a degree. And unfortunately, I'm still the only person in my family to get a degree. And I had to be a revolutionary thinker if I was going to get myself out of the situation that I was in.

"Their career. I wanted to you just briefly mentioned it, but I heard your story. And a lot of people have forgotten about this. Tell us your experience up and down. I remember up with that. Yes, and I was coming out of college in the late 60s and I think I worked. I'm from North Carolina and there was up and down program that went to Salem state university. And my mother was involved and I was involved and so forth. So people don't realize how important that program is what I think when you had a program, but a lot of schools had that tell us about your experience up with Val. And what was the upper bound trio? Are you making something about that on? Yes, podcast that I heard. Yes. So the trio programs is the umbrella program for all of the government funded programs that work with first gen students and students that are underrepresented. So trio includes upward bound student success services, it includes mcnair scholars and they have a couple other programs also to that that fall within that trio umbrella, but I am also an upward bound a lump. So when I was in high school, I was also an upper bound. There's an upper bound that I went to see community college. When I was in high school and upper bound for me was, you know, up about saved my life because it gave me the opportunity to see something different than my block. You know, something different than what I was used to saying because all students that are involved in upper bound, they get a chance to come to a college campus. They get a chance to spend, you know, if you're in one of those programs that has a summer institute, the summer institute allows for the students to come and spend about 5 to 6 weeks living on campus and taking classes on campus. And so just getting the opportunity to be on a college camp is really help to ignite my desire to want to be on a college campus. You know, once I finish high school. Yes, so upper bound is an amazing program. And since I've been at the fashion school, I've had the honor of teaching a fashion class for up or down high school students probably for about almost a decade. Yeah, the upper bound fashion student or upper bound students, a fashion class and we would do fashion shows in the summer at the summer institute and other exhibitions we've done. So it's been it's been a lot of fun. I love working with first gen student. Oh, that's awesome. And speaking of which, when it comes to your students, period, I still, in fact, I got a few calls last week, but I'm like, I don't know yet if this student was trying to do it internally or shattering from why shoe I always have a few from Kent. Because even though, you know, I'm busy and I have my business. I always advocate that we let the students, you know, come and shadow or have some type of program within our businesses so that they can see because a lot of folks a lot of students don't know really what they want to be when they grow up even though they're taking the courses to be what they need to be. So I think it's great to have you, you know, really advocate and helping students, you know, navigate after they get out, you know, because we know, look at, look at how I'm just listening to you. Look how we change over time our career direction, but it's still a part of who we are, and our career, right? Absolutely absolutely yes. Yeah, so I just really kudos to you for deftly being an advocate and then for the first generation students out there. You know, you are in the fashion, I get excited to see our sisters in the fashion world. So share with us your perspective and inside about the world of fashion and academia from the perspective of an African American woman and is it as diverse as, you know, it could be.

"More resources to make a lot of these things happen? You know, and I know this is easier said than done. But one thing that we can't depend on is that we can't depend that we're going to get resources from others. So in many ways we have to make our own resources. We have to develop those resources ourselves because we're not going to we can't depend. If we keep depending on someone to give us the resources and we're back to where we started with having society thumb on us, you know, because they're saying, oh, we didn't give them resources. And we can talk all day long about that. And I know that reparations have been something that we've been talking about for a long time now and it's come up more recently with everything else that's going on. It would be a blessing if, you know, the United States decided to give black people reparations the reparations that we deserve. However, if they don't, that should not be a reason for us not to succeed. That's it. Right. That's it. You know, one of the things that I find out that I'm on the alumni board for our medical school. And I'm just going to throw this out there. It's not a pleasant subject, but we as African Americans don't give back monetarily to our schools and our I know. You know, that have helped. And when we go back when we go and asking money from my African American medical colleagues about donating to the school and other white members have donated, you know, how much money they have. You know, I get this pushback. So we step up our game as well. Yes. You know, look at the Babylon. I know they do a lot of can say, but we could always do more. That's it. Yeah. That's it. And so that's about changing our mindset because, you know, we've been bamboozled and hoodwinked to think that everything else others help in others and all their community is more valuable than our community and we don't help our own community. And we see that all the time. We see that all the time in business because I always talk about it. And it's supposed to be that networking thing. But we're learning. We're getting there. We're getting there. I will have to say that folks are becoming more woke to that fact that we definitely have.

"Dot com. And so what do you think about that D? Well, I think that's great because I think a lot of people have forgotten about this. We still have a crisis in the world in the United States then in the world. So, no, I think that's great. I think so too. And I like how, you know, they talk about that it's okay to mourn your loved ones because it is kind of a stigma is a stigma when you have folks in your family or what have you just in general when a person has an overdose, even die from drug overdose. There's a stigma about that. Don't you think? It is. I have three Friends right now right this second who are mourning the deaths of their son to overdose. And the question is when you're dealing with this overdose versus death, you don't know whether it was an accidental overdose or an intentional because these drugs that are out there now, you know, a lot of these kids and stuff don't know how effective or how potent they're going to be. And yes, of course, the identified is the overdose and all from drugs. So yes, I have three friends now that are still getting over. Well, you don't get over it, that are still breathing. Grieving, yeah. Yeah. Oh wow. Wow, that's terrible. But yeah, it's definitely still an epidemic. So this is something to really think about. This is happening this international overdose day will be happening August of 31st. So yeah, we were talking about.

People had their masks on, but most people were sitting outside in the open air with their mask on, or they were sitting on a picnic table away from each other. And it was a, you know, it was I don't want to say this, but it was a crowd. It seemed like they knew what was going on, not like you, I'm going to take my mask off and I got my right kind of thing. So, no, it was very nice. So everybody was being proactive. Exactly. Exactly. Exactly. What is going on this week, D? Everything, everything. Everything, yes. This is international overdose awareness day. It will be August 31st. And the reason why I talked about it because we're so focused on COVID and all of that that we forget that there is an increased big time. And there was an increase in his degrees of folks overdosing, unfortunately. Yeah. That is still our public health problem. It's happening because we focus on around here in the U.S. of a but this, you know, overdose problem on drugs and all that is an international problem as well. And so the international overdose awareness day will be August 31st. You know, it says here, when I looked up information, it says that international overdose or wellness day was initiated in 2001 by Sally J Finn at the Salvation army in saint Kilda, Mary Bourne, since 2001 many community, and this is Australia. In case people don't know in case people don't know that. That's in Australia. And so since I'm 2001, and you went to Australia didn't you? I did. And I went to Melbourne, yeah. Yeah, okay, okay. Would you ever take that trip again? Answer is yes. It's a long trip. There are other places that I want to go before I go back to Australia. But I definitely had a fantastic time. Well, that's awesome. That is awesome. Yeah. But yes, she founded this. Sally Finn since 2001, many community members as well as government and non government organizations have held events to raise awareness and commemorate those who have been lost to drug overdose since 2012 international overdose awareness day has been coordinated by the not for profit, Australian, public health organization, and it's called Pennington institute. Penitent institute connects lived experience and researched, so it can connect lived or experience and research to improve community safety in relationship to drugs. Their focus is on promoting effective strategies frontline workforce education and public awareness activities and their work is a positive impact on people health and law enforcement systems, the economy and society. They are an independent voice, a reason on drug policy, and they are having a straight talking ally. They are a straight talking ally for practical incites information and evidence based action to people who are in need. I thought this was important because I like their campaign. They raised awareness of overdose. It's international and it's nice to kind of see what folks in other places are doing because maybe we can learn from what they're doing to help our programs and initiatives here. You can check it out. Their goals for their international dose awareness day spreads the message about the tragedy of drug overdose death and that drug overdose is preventable. And so the goals of international overdose awareness day are the goals are to provide an opportunity for people to publicly mourn their loved ones in a safe environment and for some, you know, to do that for the first time without feeling guilt or shame. I think this is important that you go check this out, you can some folks like to be involved.

And anxiety is a type of fear, dealing more with worry and the future rather than fearing something that is present. However, living a life of fearfulness and anxiety causes harm to our physical and mental stability which can lead a person to avoid situations or ignore them. But guess what?

So when you turn toward your fear, rather than away from it, you know this thing's about your fear that you didn't know before. And this awareness helped you it helps you overcome it. One way would be to keep a daily journal over a period of maybe two to three weeks, you jot down anything that seems significant and transferring your fear patterns and symptoms into writing can help demystify them. They are no longer so be it and insurmountable. That means you can overcome these fears when you sit and write it down.

LeBron James Deletes Fiery Tweet Calling out Lakers Haters
"Let's get to LeBron James. So LeBron James has tweeted. All right. Well, then he took it back. So we all know that the Lakers partially out of desperation, They've had to retool the back end of the roster because they've got no money. They've got no financial flexibility with the three guys making the money that they are with LeBron a DNA Russell Westbrook in the mix, so they recently added Carmelo, who is 37 Trevor, reasons 36 Dwight Howard is 35 Wayne Ellington, who's a young buck. He's 33 get baseboards. 32 Westbrook is 32 as well, but he's got the big money. So LeBron wrote, just tweeted this out, and he said Keep talking about my squad. Our personal ages. The way he plays, he stays injured. We're past our time in the league, etcetera, etcetera. Do me one favor, please. And I mean, please. He's going caps and exclamations. LeBron must be serious. Keep that same narrative energy caps when it begins, exclamation. That's all I ask Hashtag. Thank you. Then he deleted it. Yeah, because we will you deleting it for that? We will keep it that way. When it begins. We are fair on this show. We will. But why are they the leading? They play Great. Then go say we're wrong.
"ellington" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Now what do you think? What do you think about this whole situation? I mean this is this is a essentially though on the positive side, this is playing out the way the Lakers would want to play out in terms of Dennis Shooters. So that wherever you want to go, the teams that are left are probably in and nothing's for sure, but probably going to have to negotiate with the Lakers on a sign-and-trade if they want shooter. Yeah, as far as shooter goes, I honestly think that at this point shooters, best bet if he wants to make anything close to what he was asking for originally, it's going to come via sign-and-trade and it looks like Washington, Washington. Wizards might be the most landing, likely landing spot Jim in where all the money's gone just today, so I can definitely see that. And this is what I alluded to earlier the top of the show, where my my conspiracy theory really is that they let Alex walked because of the luxury-tax but because they do a deal for buddy hield that might improve Dentistry towards Washington. You know that's a really popular Theory right now amongst Lakers fans and the media so I'm still holding out hope for that. But as far as the other phrases go like DeMar DeRozan, I really think that I, you know, I still personally can't stand thinking that big of a pay cut where he's going to take the, the taxpayer mid-level exception. I do think that the Spurs might try to work a sign-and-trade somewhere, where that is I have no idea but at the same time I think it's likely. I really doubt that he comes to the Lakers or any other team with that taxpayer mid-level and he goes there so it's wild. I I was talking about it earlier but there are a couple of free agents that are still out there that haven't been signing off. I would have gone immediately. Yeah, there's still options out there on the market that's just it. This is just starting, this isn't the Lakers we see. Oh my gosh, they added four more players. Yeah. They still have six more spots to fill. They only had five guys on contract and we don't even know what's going to happen with Alfonzo mckinnie, right? Cruise is not coming back. Okay, so what happens now? Talen horton-tucker, he's a restricted free agent. You got to figure out what happens there. There's a number of other players that are out there on the market. The labor will have a lot of work to do so by no means is this done. And by the way, I also want to throw this out there. The guys we've seen so far. Most likely, these are all veteran-minimum signings, okay? Most likely they're all for the betterment of the Lakers the big bullet. They've gotten the chamber is the taxpayer mid-level which is just under six million. I don't believe they've spent that yet, so there's still more coming there, still something else, right? But I am getting a lot of questions right now in our chat. People asking what about the age, right? So far, every player they've signed talking about a reason Dwight Wayne Ellington can't log. More. They're all over. Thirty, Dwight Howard's. What thirty six races 36 way no intent. I believe I want to say it's 33 is 30 to 4:30 to 4 for baseball game and then Russ is going to be thirty-three in a few months LeBron is 36 going on 37? Anthony Davis at what 28 is sitting there looking around, feeling like the kid on the team at this point, 50 HD, she comes back..

Storytellers: Lorraine Hansberry
"Today's storyteller was a playwright and activist. Who stories centered. African american working class families despite tragically short career. She became the first black woman to have a play produced on broadway half a century later her work remains one of the most celebrated snapshots of black struggles and black joy. Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago. She started writing for paul robeson freedom a progressive newspaper at a protest against racial discrimination at new york university lorraine met robert number off a jewish writer. They married at her family home in chicago. In nineteen fifty three in nineteen. Six robert co wrote the hit song. Cindy oh cindy it's prophets allowed lorraine to stop working to focus on writing. She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun. This too was from a langston hughes poem called harlem. What happens to a dream deferred. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun or faster like a sore and then run a raisin in the sun centers on a black working class family in chicago south side as they try to improve their financial situation. The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old. The play was an almost instant. Hit the new york drama critics circle named it. The best play of the year just five months after its broadway debut arisen in the son of in london's west end in nineteen sixty one. A film starring much of the original cast was released and several of the actors received golden globe. Nominations perhaps the most important element of the play success was that entailing box stories. Lorraine also make theater accessible and previously unimaginable ways as the writer. James baldwin noted. I had never in my life seen so many black people in the theater and the reason was that never before in the entire history of the american theatre had so much of the truth of black people's lives and seen on the stage. Black people had ignored the theatre because the theatre had always ignored them lorraine would go on to finish in stage. Just one other. Play the sign in sidney bruce. Deans window about a jewish intellectual the play which explored themes of homosexuality and the bohemian lifestyle. Debuted to mixed reviews in nineteen sixty four. It ran for just over one hundred performances closing on january twelfth. Nineteen sixty five. That's same day. Lorraine hanbury died of pancreatic cancer. She was thirty four years old. After lorraine's death. Her ex husband robert had several of her plays produced posthumously to be young gifted and black became an autobiographical work. Drawing on lorraine's letters interviews and journal entries the title came from a nineteen sixty four speech of lorraine's when she spoke to the winners of a united negro fund writing competition. She said speech though. It be thrilling marvellous thing to be merely young and gifted in such times it is doubly so w dynamic to be young gifted and black

Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success
"Hi. I'm Elise Hugh. And you're listening to Ted talks daily today's talk features really fascinating research that cuts us all some slack. What I mean is it turns out you can be a late bloomer in your chosen sport or skill or specialty, and it's actually better for you in a lot of ways. The talk is journalist David Epstein at Ted Ex Manchester in twenty twenty. So I'd like to talk about the development of human potential and I'd like to start with maybe the most impactful modern story of development. Many of you here have probably heard of the ten thousand dollars rule maybe you even model your own life after it. Basically, it's the idea that the become great anything takes ten thousand hours of focused practice. So. You'd better get started as early as possible. The poster child for this story is Tiger Woods. Father Famously, gave him a putter when he was seven months old at ten months, he started imitating his father's swing. At to, you can go on Youtube and see him on national television fast forward to the age of twenty one he's the greatest Golfer in the world's quintessential ten thousand dollars story. Another that features a number of bestselling books is that of the three Polgar sisters whose father decided to teach them chests in a very technical manner from a very early age and really wanted to show that with a head start and focused practice. Any child could become a genius in anything, and in fact, two of his daughters went onto become grandmaster chess players. So, when I became the Science Writer at sports illustrated magazine I got curious if this ten thousand hours rules correct then we should see that elite athletes get a headstart in so-called deliberate practice. This is coached air correction focus practice not just playing around, and in fact, when scientists study lead athletes, they see that they spend more time in deliberate practice not a big surprise. When they actually track athletes over the course of their development, the future leads actually spend less time early on in delivered practice in their eventual sport they to have what scientists call a sampling period where they try a variety of physical activities. They gain broad general skills they learned about their interests and abilities and delays specializing until later than peers who plateau at lower levels. And so when I saw that said, Gosh that doesn't really comport with the ten thousand hours rule does it. So I started to wonder about other domains that we associate with obligatory early specialization like music. Turns out the patterns often similar. Research from a world class, Music Academy, and what I want to draw your attention to is the exceptional musicians didn't start spending more time into practice than the average musicians. Until Third Instrument, they tended to have a sampling period. Even musicians we think of is famously precocious like Yo, Yo Ma he sampling period he just went through it more rapidly than most musicians do. Nonetheless, this research almost entirely ignored and much more impactful is the first page of the Book Battle Hymn of the Tiger mother where the author recounts assigning her daughter Violin. Nobody seems remember the part later in the book where her daughter turns her and says, you picked it not me and largely quits. So having seen this sort of surprising pattern in sports and music. I started to wonder about domains that affect and more people like education and economists found a natural experiment in the Higher Ed Systems of England and Scotland in the period studied, the systems were very similar except in England students had to specialize in their mid teen years to pick a specific course of study to apply tours in Scotland they could keep trying things in university if they wanted to and his question was who wins the trade off the early or the late specializes and he saw that the early specializes jump out to an income. Lead because they have more domain specific skills, the late specializes get to try more different things and when they do pick, they have better fit or what economists call match quality, and so their growth rates are faster by six years out erase that income gap. Meanwhile, the earliest specializes start quitting their career tracks in much higher numbers essentially because they were made to choose. So early that they more often made choices. So the late specializes lose in the short term and win in the long run. I think if we thought about career choice like dating, we might not pressure people to settle down quite so quickly. So this interested seeing this pattern again in exploring a developmental backgrounds of people whose work I had long admired like Duke Ellington who shunned music lessons as a kid to focus on baseball and painting and drawing or Mario Mir's economy who wasn't interested in math is a girl dreamed of becoming a novelist and went on to become the first and so far only woman to win the fields medal the most prestigious prize in the world in Math Vincent Van Gogh had five different careers, each of which he deemed his true calling before flaming out spectacularly, and in his late twenty s picked up a book called the guide to the ABC's of drawing. That worked out. Okay Claude Shannon was an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan who took a philosophy course just to fulfill a requirement and in it, he learned about a near century old system of logic or was true and false statements could be coded as ones and zeroes in solved like math problems. This led to the development of Binary Code, which underlies all of our digital computers today.

Gershwin wrote a lot of classical music that uses jazz. Jazz the word blue refers to changing some of the notes of musical scale to blur the lines between major. And Minor. George Gershwin wasn't the only classical composer to put jazz his music. He wasn't even the first. French composer Darius Milhaud Love Jazz. He used different kinds of in different pieces. Neo wrote leboeuf's your Twat French. For the Hawks on the roof under the influence of a trip to Brazil then he studied American jazz and started using it to a lot of European composers were intrigued by American jazz, Maurice rebel, but composer who wouldn't let Gershwin study with him because he didn't want to corrupt, his music wrote a piano concerto. That sounded a lot like Gershwin. Russian composers got into the to when the Soviet Union held an official competition to raise the level of jazz in the country. Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his first jazz. After they organized an official. Soviet state jazz orchestra. Shostakovich wrote another jazz suite Russian composer eager.

What Have We Learned From Elijah Wald's Escaping The Delta
"It's time to let it roll. This is your host Nate Wilcox and we're doing a special. What have we learned episode once again with my friend and colleague Dr? Larry Campbell Yuri welcome back. Good to be here can't get good so today. We're GONNA. Look back on. Elijah Wald's book escaping the Delta and my interview that we did with him. and. We picked us up this book in that episode because. Other than Ed. Ward who basically taught me everything I. Know about analyzing music is a cultural history. Elijah Wald's books, this one and how Beatles destroyed rock and roll, which we'll talk about the next episode of what have we learned. Really expanded my mind because it took. It's a revisionist take on what has been disagree romanticized history of Robert Johnson, and the Delta Blues and found walls attempts to reevaluate Johnson. From the perspective of his peers and contemporaries, basically the black African that African American Blues Fan of the Nineteen Thirties and. Rather than from the perspective of generally white blues, fans of the nineteen sixties to now so it just totally blew my mind I tried to capture that to great interview. But the main point that the book put across that Robert Johnson was just a human being who sang and played beautifully. He wasn't a mythical figure. That probably wasn't really devil at the crossroads he wasn't. A country Bumpkin? He was a sophisticated sharp-dressed cat who travelled widely who listen to all kinds of music, not just what he heard live in the delta, but listen to the radio listener guards and learn so having said all that. How do you think we did did did I get that across in the interview with walled? Yeah, I think the book and the interview with Wall. You know Really, helps a flesh out. You know the the basic ideas that you were just talking about. And really helps to make it clear. that you know the blues artists of the late Twenties and early thirties in the early twenties really. Physically people that they were professionals. That they were participating in You know the creation of. New Cultural forms new sort of musical expressions. While at the same time. trying to freeze their audiences. Who had know? Fairly sophisticated demand and varying labs. Right so that the artists themselves as you suggested had to have A. Wide ranging set of skills, they had to have been aware of those sort of traditional musical expressions, and you know like in the case of the blues, things like Hollers and loans, and that sort of thing well also being aware of of popular music. Which by the nineteen thirties you're talking about. Artists like Duke. Ellington and Louis Armstrong and and People that are appearing in films on the radio, etc.. And so the picture of Blues. As this sort of backwater expression. Rural Culture Coming from people who were simply oppressed and trapped and you know on some level were expected to the ignorance. And poverty stricken just didn't hold you know I mean. You couldn't can be successful blues artists if you travel the country and rags. showed up at. Various venues unable to relate to modernizing audiences. And I think I think the book captures that really well. and. I thought your interview with Wall. Made that clear.

The Harlem Globetrotters
"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE.

Choose The Best Diet For You
"Start with the Diet that consistently gets the highest marks when I say Mediterranean Diet does anything come to mind and olive oil olive oil good and more. So here's the low down Sam's GonNa read us these descriptions of these diets as described arrived by US news. And here's how they talk about the Mediterranean Diet. I will read it for you. This diet emphasizes eating fruits veggies whole grains grains beans nuts looms olive oil and flavorful herbs and spices fish and seafood at least a couple of times a week and poultry eggs cheese cheese and yogurt in moderation while saving suites and red meat for special occasions. Top it off with a splash of red wine. If you want and remember to stay physically physically active and you're set now. Traditionally the Mediterranean diet is followed by some of the most long lived populations out there and these regions are called blue who's zones they're five. Blue Zone populations identified to date. These are the people around the world who most routinely live to be one hundred and don't get chronic disease only five have been identified thus far and two of them are in Mediterranean countries. One in equally agrees one in Sardinia Italy and they both have the dietary pattern we just described and and both of these dietary patterns are high in fat. But it's good fat. Net would sort of be the signature feature of traditional Mediterranean diets. Wholesome foods sensible combination but because of the emphasis assist on olives and olive oil nuts and seeds and of Kado the total fat content tends to actually be higher than the typical American Diet? So who might right this diet. Be Good for him. Well if you don't want to count calories and your goal is overall good health. You may want to give the Mediterranean Diet. A try would make sure you buy good olive oil. And here's a hint. The good stuff often has a best buy or a harvest date on the back of the bottle in some of our other episodes. Talk healthy fats. A lot more. But let's now talk about the Dash Diet. Have you ever heard of. It never heard of it. I don't think anyone's heard of it. Yeah but it's actually one of the most research diets of all time. What is it the Dash Diet which stands for dietary approaches to stop hypertension? This this promoted by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute to do exactly that stop or prevent high blood pressure emphasizes the food you've always been told to eat. Fruits veggies whole grains lean protein and low fat dairy which are high in blood pressure. deflating nutrients like potassium calcium protein and fiber. So what do you notice about this diet. It sounds a whole lot like the Mediterranean Diet. And that's for good reason so here is take away number. Two good diets tend to have a lot in common. People should take comfort in the fact that when we describe good diets they sound more alike than different. That's absolutely true. So the building. Blocks Dash and Mediterranean are fruits veggies whole grains they also allow for moderate amounts of eggs poultry and dairy and both recommend taking it easy the on sweets sugary drinks and red meat and one more thing following a dash type diet is linked to decrease risk of heart disease and strokes and band. David Katz Says Dashes Pretty Easy to follow. It's not all that different from the foods. Most Americans are eating right now. It's just it's the typical American in Diet completely cleaned up so everything will be familiar. I think that's helpful. It's a much less radical shifts. One of the reasons I tend to give high scores to the DASH. Sti- is yeah. It's a good diet for sure. There are others that I think might be better. But one of the things we're scoring every year is the practicality which goes back to our takeaway number one the best diet for you is the one you'll actually follow as you read these. Do these seem like diets to you or do they just Kinda seem like I dunno strategists. Like I'm used to diets being like a spaghetti noodle diet her like the Tapioca pudding minute. Grapefruit Diet like really really rigid and really really limited. These seem much more wide open than I would think. Diets usually are so does that. Make it more appealing Ellington totally. I would do these now. Let's talk about a diet that everybody seems to be talking about the key to diet the Kito Dodi it emphasizes weight loss through fat burning the goal is to quickly lose weight and ultimately feel better with fewer cravings while boosting your mood mental focus and energy according to Kito proponents by slashing the carbs you consume and instead filling up on fats you safely inter state of Ketosis which sounds like hypnosis who is doing this and what does ketosis really mean. Well when your body doesn't have any carbohydrates left have to burn for fuel instead it starts to burn fat and when that happens your body is an estate of Ketosis. It sounds good right because it can lead to some really quick weight loss but US news actually ranks Kito near the bottom of its list for overall best diets. We heard from Jeff Gear. He followed Kito Diet for about nine weeks and during that time. He says he put mayonnaise on. Everything feels inappropriate to say anything with like that much mayonnaise cleanse but so you know there it was and then he hit a snag and so she's like all right. Well here's how Thanksgiving's GonNa go. I'm not going to go gigantic but like you know we'll do up some fried chicken and we'll do some hasselback potatoes `tatoes and then like the next day it was like did every single ounce of the lake eighteen pounds that I lost contact and then I was just like well damn like I if I can never deviate from really prescriptive maybe kind of scary medical diet than what does it look like going forward because I nine weeks or something is intense but like the next sixty years you can probably tell. The Jeff is not really a fan of Kito anymore. It was just too extreme for him. Him and David Katz Agrees Amen Jeff. David's first strike against Kito. He says it's too hard to stick to and strike number two. David says it just doesn't doesn't check a lot of the boxes of a healthy diet. This diet is at odds with human health that tends to be a very low fiber diet. That's bad for the guest on track. We we simply don't know that this diet is compatible with human health across the lifespan. And well you know to me that sounds like a game of Russian Roulette. It may go your way it may not researchers are looking into whether a diet like Kito might be good for some people like those at medical risk due to their weight and Kito does rank in Chi- on the US news list for best fast weight loss diets. But David says that's not necessarily a good goal. I think much of the focus. Sadly is still on losing weight and and all too often. It's on losing weight fast and one of the things that I routinely point out to anybody who's willing to listen to me. Is that a cocaine. Binge in in lieu of food will result in rapid weight. Loss About of cholera will result in rapid weight loss. So you know where we ever got the idea that losing weight fast. I meant anything about finding health. I have no idea but it's wrong and David's final. Knock on Kito has to do with the environment people. Well who are on the KETO diet tend to eat a lot of meat and red meat. Production requires a lot of land and water. And that's because you need a lot of it to grow the grains to feed the livestock and that's your takeaway number three if you want to align your eating habits with a healthy planet think about the environmental footprint of your diet. I don't think Alison we can talk about Diet and health and not factor in the health of the planet. I really don't so that's got to factor into the dietary discussion. It's hard not to bump into somebody on the Keto Diet and I. I think that's sort of double bookkeeping while I can do whatever diet I want for short term weight loss. Oh yeah I really care about climate change well then no. You've got to connect those dots and this also goes for other diets that tend to have a lot of red meat. Like the Paleo Diet. Paleo diets are based on a simple premise. If the caveman didn't eat eat it. You shouldn't either so long to refined sugar dairy legumes and grains and hello to meat fish poultry fruits and veggies. The idea is that by eliminating modern era foods like highly processed carbs dairy. You can avoid or control quote diseases of civilisation like type. Two diabetes is and heart disease and likely lose weight to Can I tell you my biggest question with this caveman diet. Why would I wanna live like a caveman? Nothing about my life is Caveman Caveman Ish. Yeah I'll pass simple premise but hard to practice because everything that caveman aid is extinct. We we saw to that so you know there there. There are no stone-age foods available. The best you can do is approximated. Two major problems here. I A lot of people wave the Palo banners and excuse to eat Bacon pepperoni Indian hamburgers. There was no Palaeolithic Pepperoni. So if you want to eat variety joints either indicated mandate exact right so variety of wild plants and game. If you want to eat not only the wild animals you catch. I think that's probably a healthy diet. Frankly but the big problem with this is you need a lot of space to raise those animals if you're gonNA eat all those animals and I did the calculation for the current population of the Earth at about seven point eight billion and it would require fifteen times the surface area of the planet. What's yeah a seriously so basically just can't be done? No dorothy were not in the stone age anymore. So who might diet such as Paleo and Kito appeal to well people who like the challenge challenge of this strict set of rules and who like a high protein diet that usually includes a lot of meat. Even if it's not exactly what the Caveman eight
