Back to the story by the late eighteen fifties as he approached age. Thirty franz-josef was married and had sired a son promising a legacy beyond him but in spite of economic and social progress the empire was still dogged by civil unrest for as long as franz joseph had been on the throne. The assorted states of italy had been attempting to unify under a single flag. This set the backdrop for the second italian war of independence. A renewed effort to sever italian lands from the austrian empire in eighteen fifty eight count. Kevorkian's the leader of the italian state of piedmont struck a deal with napoleon the third of france. It was agreed that france would come to italy's aid if the austrian empire attacked piedmont. Franz-josef could not take this lying down on april twenty-sixth eighteen fifty nine. Austria declared war on piedmont in response following their pact. France declared war on austria attempting to recreate his triumph at santa lucia a decade earlier franz-josef himself led the charge at the battle of sulfur. Reno that june. But the austrian troops were outmatched by the combined forces of the french and sardinians. The austrian military retreated licking. Its wounds less than a month later. The war was over. Austria had lost and was to give up the territory of lamberti followed by other parts of italy in the coming years when italy would finally become united in his first year as emperor franz-josef had asserted himself militarily and diplomatically. Now he had made himself seem incompetent in both regards adding insult to injury. His failure added to the country's financial troubles setting the stage for a series of constitutional reforms. For all its early successes franz joseph's absolutist government had grown so inefficient that threatened to collapse the economy. His financial policies created such problems that in eighteen fifty nine. The national bank stopped accepting austrian currency. Private banking industry emerged to grease the wheels of commerce. But the heads of the banks were sick of being subjected to the emperor's army of bureaucrats. They demanded a constitution and oversight from democratically elected parliament. And they'd stop lending money until they got it to assuage the bankers fronts reinstated the reich strut an imperial council that eventually turned into a parliament. The authority of the newly revived. Parliament was confirmed by a new constitution in february of eighteen. Sixty one for the first dozen years of his reign. Franz-josef had resisted instituting constitution in the end. It was neither chanting protesters nor rifle-wielding revolutionaries that forced him to bend but a gaggle of disgruntled bankers but teaming disruptions at home did nothing to calm the empire's foreign enemies in eighteen sixty six franz-josef found himself at war again. This time on two fronts. They kingdom of prussia had been striving for years to unite the thirty nine sovereign states of germany under one banner however precious central role in the effort put them in conflict with the austrian empire. Culturally the leaders of austria were deeply linked to its german territories. German was the hubs board tongue and the language of the state government. If anyone was going to be at the center of a german unification franz-josef thought. It ought to be himself. But the emperor found himself strategically outmatched by the prussians. in particular. The kingdom's brilliant prime minister otto von bismarck years earlier he had announced that he was seeking any pretext to go to war with austria and it was a fight he meant to win to that end he contrived in alliance with italy. If franz josef opposed pressures activities in germany he would find himself simultaneously at war with italy to the south. It turned out exactly as bismarck had planned during the seven weeks. War of eighteen sixty six austrian forces one of few encounters on the italian front but lost resoundingly to the prussians. The defeat was humiliating and decisive. Austria's claims in germany were forfeited and franz-josef lost any hope. He still harboured of winning. The german crown the writing was on the wall. The hobbs berg dynasty was no longer the dominant force. It once had been now thirty. Six years old franz-josef was no longer the young conqueror thrown as a teenager at every step. He failed to live up to his early promise. And there were factions within the empire. Eager to exploit his weakness. Although hungary comprised a large portion of the austrian empire geographically and in terms of population the nation had never fully assimilated almost twenty years after the unsuccessful revolution of eighteen. Forty nine many hungarians still longed for independence by the mid eighteen sixties. Prominent leaders began to renew their calls for a new constitution and independent hungarian parliament. Franz-josef had to respond or risk another rebellion the austrian military was so depleted after its campaigns in italy and germany that the emperor was reluctant to take up another fight after years of contempt for hungary franz-josef was at last ready to bargain. Diplomatic aide. Came in an unexpected form. The emperor's wife during her many trips to hungary empress sissi had become something of a celebrity as beloved in the country. As most of the hubs. Borg's were reviled. Sissy had also become acquainted with the nation's powerbrokers she set up a series of meetings between her husband and two prominent figures telling him by letter. Exactly what he ought to say to them with her help. They arrived at a deal.

"Troops to the western alliance. Is our nicholas was devastated. He had viewed franz-josef almost as a son but when the came for franz josef to make good on his promise to france britain and the ottomans he reneged instead he suddenly announced that austria remain neutral. The jilted leaders were furious. It was a sleight that napoleon the third of france in particular would not forget head. Franz-josef come to russia's aid. The two countries might have emerged from the conflict as the most formidable military alliance on the continent conversely had he followed through on his support for the opposing side. He would have won friends in the economically advanced countries of western europe. Instead he won nothing by his act of bad faith and bungled strategy. Franz-josef left austria without meaningful allies alone on the world stage. But he wasn't so lonely back home in vienna. Franz franz-josef married his cousin sissy on april twenty fourth eighteen fifty four a few months after her sixteenth birthday sadly the new empress found herself immediately troubled by her station. Much of her unhappiness was owed to her. New mother-in-law hovered over the couple's affairs for several days after the ceremony. The couple didn't consummate their marriage. Sophie needled her daughter-in-law endlessly about her conduct at court. The habsburgs were a family that stood on ceremony. The uncouth sissy who hadn't been trained as rigorously on decorum proved to be an embarrassment once during a state dinner. Sissy thoughtlessly removed her gloves at the table. When an elderly noble woman pointed out that this was not the custom. Sissy insisted that if the empress does bennett ought to become the custom but her mother-in-law's displeasure focused mainly on sissies ability to produce an heir. Sofi pestered the teenager about having children and when they did finally arrive she didn't think cissy was capable of raising them properly. When sissy gave birth to a daughter in eighteen fifty five. The baby was quickly snatched away by governesses. Sophie had chosen the same thing happened with their second daughter a year later. Sissy begged her husband to intercede on her behalf. Finally when the elder daughter named sophie after her grandmother was two years old and her sister. Giza was ten months. Sissy manage to pry them from their grandmothers clutches. She and franz franz-josef took the girls on her first of many trips to hungary but the trip was short lived. Both of the girls became violently. Ill possibly with typhus the baby. Jesus recovered but little. Sophie died in her mother's arms. It was a heartbreaking loss. Made worse by sissies bitterness towards her mother in law for keeping her daughters away from her for so long sophie was of course moved by the toddler's death as she too had experienced something similar nevertheless she continued to press sissy for a male heir. The following year. Sophie finally got fired on august twenty first eighteen fifty eight three days after franz-josef twenty eighth birthday sissy gave birth to a son the crown prince rudolf. The hopes of the family and the empire were pinned on the new baby but franz-josef was far too occupied with affairs of the state to be much of a father and as the second half of the nineteenth century proceeded. Old dangers reemerged again threatening the stability of the empire coming up. The austrian empire suffers more embarrassing loss and transforms into a dual monarchy.

He blocked an attempt by parliament to introduce a democratic constitution and the military squashed revolutions in the austrian territories of northern and hungary after those early bloody months in which thousands were killed in battle or for sedition. Franz-josef began a series of ambitious initiatives to move the empire forward. His mode of governing came to be known as bureaucratic absolutism while the ruler had absolute. Say over all decisions. He installed a massive network of officials to carry out the day to day work in the eighteen fifties the government employed as many as fifty thousand civil servants many of whom aimed to modernize the empire economically and socially they hope to grant additional rights better living conditions and greater economic mobility to citizens that rather than agitating for democratic reforms. They saw the stability of the hobbs. Berg dynasty as the best path to progress a strong state could provide the material conditions support individual freedom and fulfillment so they worked diligently to keep the system running.

The medieval walls around the capital city were demolished replaced by ringstrasse a stately boulevard. That still surrounds. The city's inner district today fueled by revenue from the growing industrial and financial sectors. Vienna became a modern cosmopolitan city.

The feudal system was abolished liberating millions of agricultural workers from serfdom and returning their ancestral lands. Franz joseph's march constitution declared legal equality in recognition for all ethnicities and nationalities. Every group in the diverse empire was free to cultivate its own language culture and national identity on almost every front franz-josef early rain made good on the tradition of his namesake. The reforming emperor yosef the second franz-josef was not concerned with the freedom and contentment of the people for him. The reforms were all part of a strategy to win their loyalty with the end goal of shoring up his own power franz-josef had come to the throne amidst massive upheavals and rebellions that threatened to tear the empire apart. His guiding principle was to do everything in his power not to let any threats like that arise again the assassination attempt. By a hungarian nationalist in february eighteen fifty three was a reminder that even with peace restored and the economy booming. Not everyone in the empire cared for franz-josef he could never let his guard down. But if the emperor was obsessed with the stability and integrity of the state his ever enterprising mother. Sophie was more concerned with their families legacy shaken by the attempt on her son's life sophie became increasingly eager for him to marry and produce an error in june eighteen. Fifty three.

When the cousins got together for t- that august elena found herself tongue-tied and franz. Joseph was unimpressed. his is instead to helena's fifteen year old sister elizabeth oblivious to the emperor's affections sissy as she was known chatted away but with some embarrassment since she knew her sister was the one who was supposed to become his empress. But franz-josef was smitten. After the meal ended. He went on and on to his mother about sissies beauty just a few days later. Franz-josef attended church with sissy and her family after the mass he asked for the priest's blessing proclaiming that she would be his wife. He didn't bother informing sissy of their engagement prior to the announcement but she didn't object and seemed fond her fiance if not as love struck as he was. However it was clear from the beginning that things would be somewhat tense between the archduchess and her daughter-in-law sophie for the most part accepted the situation but still found opportunities to criticize his sons new fiancee during their courtship. She told franz-josef that his bride would be pretty. If only it weren't for her yellow teeth with the marriage scheduled for the following spring franz-josef returned to governing. And all too soon a crisis arose that had the potential to undermine the security. He had been carefully tending in the summer of eighteen fifty. Three russian forces had invaded and occupied an area. That was a principality of the ottoman empire that october. The ottomans declared war on russia beginning. The crimean war soon. The united kingdom france and sardinia would join the war.

"Now back to the story at the start of his reign in december eighteen forty eight franz-josef surrounded himself with a trio of hawkish advisors making it clear that the young emperor meant to rule with an iron fist but the new year brought three immediate challenges to his authority an attempt by lawmakers in vienna to draft a constitution an uprising in italy and a fierce resurgence of the rebellion in hungary true to their military pedigree franz-josef and his advisors met all three of these challenges with overwhelming force at the beginning of eighteen. Forty nine a parliamentary counsel. The reichstag gathered in chromium a city located in present day czech republic commission the previous year under the approval of emperor ferdinand. The reichstag was the country's first elected parliament. The officials had already begun work on the new constitution before franz-josef took the throne. The document was to be fashioned. In the mold of the american and french constitutions establishing full representative government stripping the emperor of his unilateral powers and ending both state religion and nobility. The reichstag was stopped in. Its tracks and franz-josef instead introduced his own constitution he ultimately dissolved. The reichstag and its members were dismissed to make sure the lawmakers didn't rebel. The military was then send into patrol the area but while the regime was willing to strong arm lawmakers premier zhou franz-josef and his officers saved their most savage treatment for opponents in parts of the empire on march twelve following a month long armistice the war against austrian rule recommenced in the italian city of navarra field. Marshall rodeschini returned to italy with a contingent of troops crushing the rebellion in days. A period of harsh retribution against the italians followed with massive fines imposed land seized and an estimated nine hundred. Sixty people were executed but the defining conflict franz-josef first months on the throne was in hungary and on that front. The new emperor aim to crush the insurrection with such ferocity that no one would dare question his authority in april of eighteen forty nine. The hungarian resistance formed their own. Revolutionary government and proclaimed that the austrian emperor had been deposed franz-josef could have met this challenge with restraint negotiating with the new hungarian government. He could have made good on his predecessors promise of a constitution for hungry instead he called on the support of czar nicholas the first of russia the czar feared that a successful revolution in hungary might spark a similar uprising in poland which was then under russian control. Franz-josef fan the flames of the czars anxiety. He wrote nicholas that only. The glorious fraternity of their empires could save modern society from certain ruin. Czar nicholas offered the full support of his military to squash the hungarian rebellion that summer. With the aid of one hundred thousand russian soldiers. Franz josef's forces resoundingly defeated the hungarian forces near the city of t me suara hungary was once again firmly under austrian rule. Though the events had done nothing to cool hungary's hostility toward the empire. The atrocities by the austrian leadership after the war only inflame. The resentment especially incendiary was an austrian military leader. Baron julius fawn high now fine heino was a veritable sadist who had earned the nickname the beast of brisha for his torment of men women and children his time on the italian front fun high remained in charge of the subdued hungarian lands following his army's victory the emperor decreed that no executions be carried out without his express approval but by that point the beast had already been released despite franz joseph's decree over one hundred hungarian soldiers and officials were shot or hanged in spite of franz josef's attempts to restrain his most violent commanders. There is no denying his responsibility in the slaughter. No other european monarch in the entire nineteen century signed more death warrants than franz-josef. The i did following. The hungarian revolution particularly scandalous incident was the execution of hungarian politician lawyer but yanni. Although he was technically among the rebels but johnny had urged restraint an accommodation with the empire many believed his life would be spared but they underestimated the resolve of the new emperor at the urging of archduchess sophie who disliked but yanni for a perceived personal slight franz-josef ordered the man's execution by hanging on the eve of the execution. Botany with either a dull blade or penknife attempted suicide not wishing to make the wrong kind of spectacle by dragging the bleeding man to the gallows the officer in command shot him instead only to be censured for not carrying out the execution as ordered with the hungarian revolution finally behind him franz-josef set out to prove that he could affect change through diplomacy as well as violence in eighteen fifty he worked with the king of prussia to negotiate territory dispute. King frederick william. The fourth had been making incursions into the hess region of germany sometimes erupting into violence squabbles. With austrian troops their fresh off his own empires internal battles in italy and hungary franz-josef now found himself at the brink of war with a formidable foreign power. But the young emperor didn't blink as he went toe to toe with the prussian king who was thirty five years his senior against the protests of franz-josef advisers. The two leaders agreed to work together to plan what future germany would have an under whose control. It wasn't a great victory for the austrian empire but it was a shrewd bid of diplomacy. It also allowed franz-josef to demonstrate that he was not only a strong willed commander but also a competent administrator emboldened by his successes in battle and at the bargaining table. franz-josef began to display his legendary regal demeanor. He developed a habit of wearing his military uniform in public so much that he earned the nickname lieutenant. Red legs in reference to the color of his army pants. Franz-josef wanted to prove not only that he could hold office as his great grand uncle had done but that he could rule and rule well without anyone's help or interference in eighteen fifty one at the age of twenty one. He set out to do just that. On new year's eve franz-josef issued his silvester patent. Dissolve the constitution. He'd made earlier no longer. Would he be subject to advice or oversight from parliament. Franz-josef was in question. An absolute monarch his grip on the government would only tighten the following year in april eighteen. Fifty two franz josef's most trusted adviser prince felix. Schwarzenberg suffered a stroke and died. The emperor was distraught. He swiftly decreed that schwarzenberg's duly empty role as president of the ministerial council would go unfilled. Franz-josef couldn't possibly hope to find another counselor. He could trust as he had trusted schwarzenberg so he would rely on himself alone from that day forth franz-josef would serve as both the monarch and effectively as his own.

"In the northern italian provinces. A series of revolts sought to liberate the region from austrian rule. Sophie reason that her son's bravery on the battlefield set the stage for him to succeed his uncle as emperor at the scene time. Sophie didn't want her son's reputation to be tainted by the events in vienna. She was revolted equally by the audacity of the protesters and the tepid response from the feeble. Emperor ferdinand franz joseph's distance from the city would also distance him from the emperor's actions. Sophie was shrewd enough to perceive something critical about the current state of affairs. While the uprisings across the empire had some common grievances there was no coordination among the groups and no clear unified purpose the austrian empire was a patchwork of nations with no prominent ethnic group language or culture serbs croats germans slovaks hungarian magyars polls talion were all among the diverse population. Consequently the revolutions of eighteen forty eight were regional with no collaboration between the italian rebellion. In the western part of the empire and the hungarian in the east each group was trying to win local sovereignty rather than topple the empire. As long as they were divided the austrian forces could subdue them one by one ben the less the various insurgencies struck at the empire with tremendous will and energy and there were times when the hops burg's zone soldiers identified more with the insurgents than with their leaders in the fall of eighteen forty eight. The austrian minister of war ordered a delegation of troops to join a battle in hungary but some of the troops mutinied and a riot ensued in vienna. A group of protesters dragged the minister from his office by evening. His body hung from a lamppost in a city square naked and mutilated by stab wounds. This was the final breaking point in late october. The new viennese field marshal. Prince of fred vindicate 'grats mounted an aggressive effort to end the uprising. In the capital he surrounded vienna with troops and laid siege to his own city killing over two thousand citizens in the process. Just before new year's vindicate 'grats issued a proclamation amounting to state or terrorism. The document called for the immediate execution of anyone taking orders from the revolutionary committee any village that harbored revolutionaries would be leveled to the ground and the village leaders would pay with their heads for any disturbance. Then dish 'grats his forces executed over two dozen. People suspected of sedition. The city was under strict military control. Throughout the fall and winter it was against this backdrop that franz succeeded to the throne of the hubs berg dynasty that august franz-josef had turned eighteen and his mother was busy arranging. The terms for a transfer of power central to her plan was the support of prince felix. Schwarzenberg a brilliant statesmen and military strategists schwarzenberg sought a more central role in the government. But he didn't wish to serve under. Emperor ferdinand the introduction of a new sovereign whose reign he could help shape from the outset would allow him to better exert his influence. Do this end. his interests. Aligned perfectly with the archduchess schwarzenberg had met franz iosif in italy and was impressed with the promise. The young man showed all they had to do was get. Emperor ferdinand out of the way schwarzenberg and sophie worked together to implore ferdinand to abdicate. Ferdinand already frail state had been taxed by the recent turmoil gladly obliged on december second eighteen forty eight emperor. Ferdinand handed power to his grandson. Quiet ceremony attended only by the imperial family and a few state officials. Franz-josef knelt before his uncle and ferdinand blessed him by making the sign of the cross on his head. He said to the new monarch. God bless you. Francie be good. God will protect you. I'm happy about it. All and with that blessing franz-josef the first rose as emperor of the austrian empire. Keeping both of his given names franz and yosef was a deliberate choice. france was inherited from his grandfather. Holy roman emperor. Franz the second and yosef was a nod to his great grand uncle. Emperor yosef the second who is regarded as a progressive reformer yosef had championed religious tolerance and governed with parliamentary consent choosing to keep his name suggested that the young emperor might be a similarly progressive force but his other namesake franz. The second had been a rigid autocrat. Once when a doctor praised his good constitution frost. The second shot back that he never had a constitution and didn't wish to hear the word again. It was the autocratic franz the second who was the new emperor's for runner in spirit and any who are optimistic that franz josef the i might usher in a new era would soon have their hopes dashed. Shortly after he took power the eighteen year old emperor addressed a group of his subjects in vienna. He spoke of free institutions the spirit of the age and equality before the law suggesting that progressive reforms maybe on the horizon but franz-josef speech made clear that the chief goal of granting any rights was in his words to maintain the splendor of the crown undimmed and the monarchy as a whole undiminished. Anyone who expected liberal reforms from the young monarch needed only to look at the counselors. He kept close to know his true intentions along with his mother. Sophie franz-josef closest advisors were prince schwarzenberg and the field marshal's redact sqi and vindicate 'grats of whom were fiercely militaristic. Violence tended to be their first and final course of action. Legend has it that one time when schwarzenberg was asked to consider showing mercy toward the rebels. He retorted yes. It is a good idea but will have a little hanging i. These men's propensity for violence was on full display in the early months of franz joseph's rain. They showered retribution on anyone. Who questioned their leaders. Sovereignty coming up franz-josef engages in his first military campaign as emperor and settles into his role as an autocrat. This episode is brought to you by truly.

Sexing Male and Female Plants
"Our diocese plants. Well basically we're talking males and females here that there are some plants that have flowers that contain both male and female parts for example and they pollinate themselves and then there are other plants that some of the plants have male flowers and produce pollen and some of the plants have female flowers and those are the ones that get pollinated by the male. So maybe the most familiar example of a d. Shis plant that most people. Even if they didn't have a garden or love plants would be familiar with is holly we all know that the female holly plants produce those red berries and the male holly plants sit quietly in the background doing their duty. The male sprawl out. I know for most tallies. The males are not attractive plant as females. They're kind of e and whatever but they do the job right. They get the job done. They are necessary yes in terms of pollination and producing those berries. I think also more and more people are familiar with the idea of male and female plants because of cannabis cannabis is a diocese plant. Right and It is a plant that males and females. Now unlike hawley for cannabis growers. In less they are breeding cannabis. They don't want the males. They don't want their females to be pollinated and why it. Why is that because once. The female flowers are pollinated. They don't go on to produce bigger more cannabinoid rich bud. So they're they're producing seeds instead of exactly so for those who grow cannabis. They want female plants not male plants but another plant. That is dialysis that has male and female that people only want males are gingko. No no no no. No you say this. As if it's true for everyone. If i could be guaranteed of buying a female gingko tree i would be all over that because for nari gingko feeds are frigging delicious and and the reason that many people don't want female is that the fruit is stinky. Yes it is smells horrible. This is often used as an urban tree Because it's lovely and it doesn't get too large and you know it has a lot to recommend it an urban tree the last thing you want to smell fruit walk. You know in the washington. Dc area if it turns out that because you can't tell what sex ginko is until it gets old enough to fruit so you plan to all these beautiful street trees and then ten years down the road people in the neighborhood start complaining about the stinky fruit in the dc area if enough people at a certain percentage in the neighborhood complain the city will come in and cut down the female gingko really criminal. Well you know what. I hoping you were going to say. I was hoping you. We're going to say that the city would come in and pick all the fruits when he was young so that it didn't fall on the sidewalk and be a problem but no now that's never going to happen. What other plants to that are familiar to people. But that might surprise them. Begonias begonia dialysis so the male and the female flowers of the begonias. They're both pretty. But if you look at them you can most definitely see how they are different and another thing that people might not realize is dialysis is asparagus. If you grow asparagus in your garden and you notice at the end of the season that some of those plants those pretty little red seeds on the fernie. Franz those are female asparagus plants. So asparagus is another one. You know. those are two pretty common plant. I think people just don't realize that they're on separate male and female plants. Asparagus is one plant. That people often prefer to buy males and that is because the females of course put a certain amount of attention into making needs and the males put more attention into growing more shoots and so when you purchase slips of asparagus plants to start an asparagus bed. There are many companies that offer all male plants.

"franz" Discussed on Classics for Kids
"Schubert was born in seventeen. Ninety seven in vienna at a time. When vienna was the center of the classical music world schubert's father was a schoolteacher who also taught his sons to play string instruments as a kid. Franz schubert wrote a lot of music for his built in said of guinea pigs the shubert family string quartet. Franz schubert played the piano and he sang at the age of ten. He auditioned and got into a very good school. The imperial and royal seminary which trained boys for the court chapel choir. The choir schubert sang in isn't royal anymore. But it's still around. You might even have heard it. Because these days the vienna boys choir tours all over the world. The german name of schubert's school was convict and apparently schubert felt like a convict there. The school was so strict that he called it a prison. But he got a great music education and the school orchestra provided another set of guinea pigs for schubert's earliest symphonies. The most famous symphony by schubert is one he wrote later on instead of four movements or sections. Which was the usual number for a symphony back. Then schubert's eighth symphony only has two movements so it's known as the unfinished symphony Schubert's father was glad that his son fronts got such a good music education but he had no intention of letting him be a professional musician. Schubert senior expected all his sons to teach in the school that he ran but france didn't last long as teacher because he had the amazing ability to compose music. No matter where he was no matter how noisy it was even in a classroom. Full of children When schubert gave up teaching he moved out of his parents house and moved in with friends for the rest of his life. He lived with one friend after the other. Unlike his father schubert's friends encouraged him to compose. they help. Parties called chew bertie. Yod's at which nothing but schubert's music was performed. Total schubert spent the rest of his life as a musician. Terribly poor but doing what made him happy. At the time. Very few people recognized what a genius he was a Hello no one could write a melody. The way schubert. Could there's one kind of music schubert's specialized in that. I haven't mentioned yet in which melody is very important. Schubert was so good at writing that kind of music that he did it better than anyone else had before him and composers. Who came after him found schubert's work very hard to live up to. That's the subject of next week's show..
Michigan is as top team in their league

Real quick this is when i had nailed before before the season started i thought hunker hundred dickinson was going to wind up as top ten freshmen. In america. this season informed by a couple of things one. He was awesome as a recruit and he was. He was highly lauded like blue chip of recruit. But he wasn't by the time he finished his high school career. He wasn't in that top. Ten range But i pre- pretty sure you saw him right alongside me In some of the games that he played on the summer circuit and he was great and knowing what michigan loss from a season ago and how. I expected him to be used. You know. I didn't think he'd be the team's best player. He's been the teams best player. I thought it would be isaiah. Livers in franz wagner and then dickinson three dickinson's awesome so Certainly a shout to him and he has been able to step in. You know as seven foot seven one kind of guy and just be a problem for opposing teams If you listen to the podcast now you're in on him early. He could be one of those players that once college basketball is more you know generally talked about the games are more prominent. The nfl season's over college football season's over you might start to hear a little bit more. See a little bit. More buzz about hunter dickinson but yes michigan is right there at the top of the league right now whether you want to argue is in michigan wisconsin illinois obviously rutgers and northwestern iowa who's the best of the big ten. Nobody knows but right now. Michigan is the only one in the entire league that can say it's played and not taking a loss and it's done that With eight games under its belt so very impressive right now and sitting at the top of the week.

Egyptian President al-Sisi to meet President Macron
"French president emmanuel macron has said. He won't make sales of weapons to egypt conditional on its human rights record. He said he didn't want to weaken egypt's capacity to fight. Terrorism in the middle east missing. Mccomb was speaking after talks president. Abdel fattah el sisi. He's on a state visit to franz. Let's tell us more. I'm joined by the journalist reef michelson and regular monocle commentator on egypt and the middle east. Welcome back ruth. Good morning morning. This is quite an astonishing statement and td place it in the context of just how important egypt's for when it comes to french military expert Incredibly important between twenty thirteen and twenty seventeen. france was egypt's largest weapons exporter. They have sold them all kinds of things including rafael jets and unfortunately surveillance equipment that has been used against all kinds of people including likely peaceful activists and ngo workers so they're an enormously important partner and macron's decision to say that none of this will be conditional and to speak in that way also is quite the contrast to the changing tide that we're seeing over in the united states right now you watch the speeches. Delivered by monsieur macron abdel. Fattah el sisi. Yesterday was the tone of them I did watch them. And i feel that you know macron had this tone where he started everything that he said about human rights and human rights when he was speaking. Didn't really get much the look in. He answered some questions about it when he was pressed by a reporter from radio. France as well But every time that he spoke about human rights which he did as a sort of bowing to pressure that he's had to say that he had to mention it which we've seen every time. cc. His visited paris everytime macron mentioned. This he sort of couched it in terms of talking about extremism and talking about fighting terrorism Which of course is very much. His domestic policy at the moment And frankly watching. This felt like something of a failure in the sense that you know the cdc regime in egypt justifies pretty much everything it does in terms of fighting terrorism even when potentially they're doing the exact opposite most of the political prisoners that we're talking about That are in custody today in egypt. Detained on terrorism charges. Human rights defenders have been detained on terrorism charges. So it you know. It doesn't really playing into cici's hands when you frame everything that's happening in terms of fighting terrorism because it gives him get out cools indeed. I mean we have human rights. groups are saying that emmanuel macron effectively indulging the egyptian president. Here what -solutely. I mean I frankly speaking after. I watch those speeches yesterday. I was thinking you know. It's emmanuel macron getting played or is this part of his agenda. But it certainly i mean. Was he set taupe stage where he could just say. Well we're not really listening to Those particular concerns with all focus on the party sellers to weapons. And we're going to move on now. So i mean see at one point said It's not appropriate to present egypt as an oppressive state given all it does for the region and that also is something that chimes with what macron said which is. Well you know egypt. We've discussed are concerns with egypt. But they're going to be important for us in terms of regional issues such as libya where there isn't actually necessarily proof. The egypt is a good partner in libya. But the one thing egypt is they're not The enemies with the one in turkey And you know that is macron's also new chosen regional rival so it's it's almost as though he's decided that because he's going to spa with duan which never goes well. But you know he's going to have to back one's opponent just as a bit about this actually does for my new macron's reputation both domestically but also how other world leaders might see him as as welcoming someone with human rights record which is questionable. As you've just described. I think that's a good question. I mean the key question in terms of how other world leaders will see. This is Certainly how the eu will see it because he you has been very critical of egypt I think perhaps somewhere like italy might be more on board with what macron has even though. There's you know that's been a contentious relationship. Because both france and italy have taken a similar line which is to say The you know there's abuse in egypt. We have to deal with them because libya because of racist concerns about migration and wanting to stop migration into europe but also at the same time You know the incoming biden administration has made quite clear that you know. In biden's words there will be no blank checks for trumps favorite dictator in reference to cece. So whether this will how much of a contrast that will be biden's actually sworn in is quite a question but in the meantime thought to el-sisi gets to gets absolutely gets his son with this. It was i mean. It's getting to see the red carpet rolled out for someone that is jailing. Thousands of people The way the level of press freedom the level of freedom of expression is at historically bad levels not just for egypt but for the region and for the world as a whole and it is really a question brought does macron. Get out of this. What's the benefit other than maybe on sales but it's it's really hard to tell where the benefit is to macron and where the real benefit is to his agenda Watching that kind of warm. Welcome for somebody as credibly accused of human rights abuse ruth michelson. Thank you very much as ever for joining us on multiple twenty four
Fishing holds key to Brexit trade deal as talks drag on
"We want to get you the latest on Exit now because hopes for a breakthrough on a trade deal seemed to be on again off again, almost by the minute. So for the latest, we're joined now by David Merrit, senior executive editor for Bloomberg News. And David. I've been watching, I think along with you. The flurry of headlines have seen in just the last hour on where things stand in the Brexit negotiations. Get us up to speed if you could. Yeah, that's right on an office is definitely the right way to describe it in the market, certain reactions that pound whip soaring around. I think it just reflects the really frenetic nature. Off the talks as we really are into this final stretch here, and officials on both sides briefing various bits of the media that things are looking good things looking bad, the most recent reports saying something is imminent this weekend that came out of this morning when there was a bit of uncertainty, the French threatening a veto if they didn't like this deal, saying there was still significant gaps. So you know who to believe. I think what we do know they're still in the room. The pace of the talks really has intensified. What we may need over the weekend is a final political push. That means Boris Johnson, prime minister having a phone call, perhaps with ocean of underlying the president, the European Commission so really broken those final compromises. Both sides probably need to give a few more inches to get this deal done Most of it, though most of the Texas there so we will be waiting. It could come this weekend, but I have. We're afraid I've given up painting, and he did. Deadlines on this, you know, they're only deadline. That really matters is probably the end of transition, and that's December 31st. Right. So we got, I guess just a few more weeks before that comes along. But do we have any indications at this point that we are going to get that top level meeting any time soon between the prime minister and the president of the Sea? We have don't have confirmation, but suddenly things look to be heading that way. And I think it's worth taking a step back here. You know, no. The reporting on the ground, both in Brussels and in London, despite some of the official comments that come out about prom Rooms, disagreements tensions. Those things are kind of normal at this station negotiation. What's really going on behind the scenes, we're told is that career progress is being made. But there are these still fundamental gaps is all the things we know about the fishing access the level playing field that they're calling state aid rules on there needs to be a bit of a barge, Mr Barnier and Mr Frost, the chief negotiators, they cannot do that themselves. They're going to need instruction from their bosses. That's the prime minister and the president the commission, so those two are gonna have to come together at some point. Maybe we're being set up for that as well. There's going to be a grand political gesture. Ultimately, to get this thing over the line. The incentive is there. Neither side wants to be blamed, of course for talks breaking down and for there to be any more economic disruption at this point in time, so we're gonna have to wait and find out the confirmation, But I think that would be the moment to look for over the weekend. All right, well, it is very interesting, though, that France really seems like it's taken an outsize role in these negotiations. I mean, what are the chances that France really could veto a deal of this? Stage of the game. Well, Mr Macron, the President Franz has got slight form on this, of course in not only in the Brexit talks and other big moments in European negotiations, the French going on record today. Say they, Yes, they would trash this deal if they didn't like it. They have actually said this fairly consistently, though, throughout this process, and the French had this big interest in the fishing. Uh, part of this question and also on this kind of state aid that the fairness between the two economies. It's our closest trading partner, the biggest one with Britain, so that relationship is very key. French officials have been touring from the fishing villages in northern France to make a big show of how they are ready for no deal. If it has to happen, But if no deal does happen, those fishing villages are going to be really impacted that they're not allowed to go in. They take the majority of the fish out of the English Channel. If that is stop, that's a big domestic problem. Mr Macron, But he has to be seen to be making us that It's his style, of course, and we've seen it before to make a bit of a stand at this moment in time. But as I said previously the expectations despite what people are saying in public, and he may well be talking to his domestic market, they're more than globally. Ultimately, the people in the room seemed to be making lots of progress. Only about a minute left in our conversation in just a few weeks left until that hard Brexit deadline as you mentioned, is there a sense that some of the sticking points here are just on the Margins or are both sides far enough? Apart from each other that this really could fall apart in the next couple of weeks? I mean, absolutely could fall apart. You know, the history of Britain in the year I'm afraid is ones of both parties talking at cross purposes and on these fundamental questions of sovereignty and who is going to adjudicate over the rules, you know, there is still a significant gap. Someone's got to budge. Someone's gonna blink. Both sides have got big domestic reasons why that is politically difficult for them to do so. Mr Johnson depends on the votes. You people got to me in that landslide last year to get Brexit done in a meaningful way, as he put it. So, yes, the there is a possibility that things fall apart. Both sides of preparing for that New Year's Eve is the deadline, Britain would fall back to the World Trade Organization rules. That means tariffs quotas back backed up Lori's at Dover, potential food shortages on the supermarket shelves and Britain it could be fairly chaotic. They want to try and avoid it, but there still remains a significant chance that that might happen in just a few weeks
Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal
"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement. Deo i think it's still a political moment because as always this tension between people saying let's go green other Saying it will damage economy People in cost known areas concerned type. Slutty jim republic who worry about paying extra tax also green initiatives ambrose johnson especially saying worry we can. Tiny's these things together. We make sure. Green economic growth happens in some of the left behind redwood areas and talking about place humble months for over northeast. police o'clock. It's wonderful to have you on the podcast. What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state. Money is also about regulation so of course the bundle twenty fifty borrowing in new pets from these laws as an example of wet government does not have to spend the money it can regulate and things happen and so many of these decisions of stems from theresa. May's decision donning moments of her administration commit twenty-fifty net zero target. Only kind of off the thought. She the mohanchris coop suasion joyfulness. She bandied about it even now known. Would think theresa may is great green ahead and yet she took this decision from which all sorts of future decisions have the stem. But i think to remember names of bishops is very seats. Promotional world where Christie is coming from fossil fuels. Were kind of on talking for. I think you have to remember that. The british energy system like any other system But also transport system unfairly household energy or freeways needs to be decarbonised. And i remember whether we're on track to do that.

"To understand the assassination of archduke franz ferdinand. We need to understand what was happening. In europe in nineteen fourteen. Franz ferdinand was the heir presumptive of the austro-hungarian empire under then emperor franz-josef. He was a very unlikely heir to the throne as required both the suicide of his cousin. Prince rudolph and the death of his father to typhoid fever he was particularly. Well traveled person having circumnavigated the world in eighteen ninety eight and spend time in australia and the pacific. He was also one of the wealthiest people in europe having been named the heir of the duke of medina in italy. Europe at the time was dominated by a few large countries and in particular in eastern europe. The austro-hungarian empire dominated a huge part of the map. Serbia and montenegro were independent but other southern slavic lands such as bosnia. Were part of the austro-hungarian empire. Bosnia had been annexed austria hungary in one thousand nine hundred eight which sparked outrage of many slavs living in the region and in serbia there was a movement to join all of the slavic people in the balkans into a single country called yugoslavia which means southern slavic land in serbia the monarchy which had been friendly to the austro-hungarians was violently overthrown. In one thousand nine three in a more nationalistic king was installed and i do mean a violently. The king was shot thirty times. He was then disembowelled stripped and thrown out of a window onto a pile of manure. The new regime in serbia was much more antagonistic to the austrians much more friendly to the russians and much more supportive of the separatist groups within the austro-hungarian empire. One of these groups is called the black hand they were established in one thousand nine eleven for the creation of a greater serbia. They explicitly advocated the use of terrorism to bring about their goals and were by far the most violent and extreme the separatist groups in bosnia. At the time there is one other thing. I should mention before i get into the events of june twenty eighth. Franz ferdinand wife his wife sophie came from an aristocratic family in stood guard but she was not from a royal dynastic family. Their marriage was known as a left hand marriage or a morganatic marriage which is marriage between people of different social rank when they would endure. Franz-josef refused to attend the ceremony and declared that any children from the union would not be in line for the throne. What this meant is that. During official functions. Sophie seated next to france ferdinand for most official events however there was an exception to the rule when acting in a military capacity and franz ferdinand was a general in the austrian hungarian army. She could be seated with him in public. It was in this environment. That france ferdinand arrived in june nineteen fourteen when the emperor asked him to review troops in bosnia in his role as a military general prior to the visit to sarajevo. The black hand had decided. It was looking for a target in the imperial government to attack. They were originally going to try to kill. The governor of bosnia up but then decided on france ferdinand in march. They began their planning. The black hand leader in sarajevo. Dan ilic organized and recruited the team of assassins. They picked up weapons and belgrade and position themselves.

"So Tom when we left off. We're learning about the only lawyer in history to give a woman a non faked orgasm. More insight into Franz's mindset, here. Sure I'd be happy you in fact, let me quote directly from Messmer on. How animal magnetism is supposed to work this equipment? Modern Philosophy has admitted a plenum or universal principle of fluid matter, which occupies all space, and that has all bodies moving in the world abound with pores this fluid matter introduces itself through the Inter. Species and returns backwards and forwards flowing through one body by the currents, which issue therefrom to another has in a magnet which produces that phenomenon, which we call animal magnetism, not change any terminates chloroquine, and it's a trump corona virus press conference Karen. Change none of the terms. It's my tinder bio. He continues quote. This fluid consists of fire and spirit, and like all other fluids tends to an equilibrium, therefore, it is easy to conceive how the efforts which the bodies make towards each other produce Animal Trysofi, which in fact is no more than the effect produced between two bodies, one of which has more motion than the. Non Serving to prove that the body which has most motion communicates to the other until the medium of motion becomes an equilibrium between the two bodies, and then this equality of motion produces animal electricity all right. You heard it, so grab your Fedora. Start Nagging and take plenty of cocaine. He can vibrate around the bar like a fucking asshole. Women love that. Just in case you guys didn't catch that because it's written purely in God damned gibberish. Basically, there's invisible energy juice. Moves around, and it gets in your pores, and sometimes it's also electric. Kind of well new. Yeah, but mostly like when your dog chases its tail light. Right. Anyway since everyone has just energy juice everywhere, and sometimes one person has too much energy, juice, or maybe two little, you can rebalance your energy tides. If you're near a person who's energy juice tide is more better than your energy juice. You can see why hit it behind gibberish now. So cookies all that sound. You have to put that into the context of medical treatment in the late seventeen hundreds, which was in no way more insane than animal magnetism. So people really fucking interested in this idea and they were probably a little tired of being told that the problem was always. You have too much blood. Let me. Did, they ever had blood. Flow Leech on you! Spit the blood back in did that in one out of four times? It didn't work out so. So mesmerized begins to gain a bit of notoriety, and he was invited to weigh in on whether exorcisms were real and Messmer I fucking love this with no trace of irony, whatsoever founded the exorcist himself was sincere, but that the exorcism wasn't successful, because it rid the patient of demons, instead Messmer found that the real cure is affected because the priest unknowingly channel. Their animal masochism hum amazing. How made up bullshit handshakes with other made up bullshit so well. As might. PLATTERS and hollower share the same convention. God. You need to know I am. Where do Hala worth think GPS? Satellites are like. I'm dying. There in the up see-sawed. A North obviously, that's the one that point. All right. To measure ran into a touch of trouble when he attempted to cure a blind piano prodigy named Maria Theresa, Paradise, while he claims that she was cured while they were together, she was. It turns out still totally fucking as soon as she was around. Other POMPA. Eisenberg uncertainty principle right there. I'm. Nice and berries. Enberg clever and Vienna Vienna had had enough of all this bullshit it also he very likely touched her inappropriately whatever? He left Vienna or he left for Paris mired in scandal and failure. Scandal strangely did not follow Franz to Paris it. It was embarrassed to be around him and. Ask! Right so without any quickly set up shop among the wealthy of the city and his buddy. Mozart frequently popped in for visits in Paris Messmer began a hugely successful practice, sometimes treating two hundred patients a day. He's this weird groupon. That's very. Sometimes measure would treat these patients one on one and other times perform a kind of like magnetism group therapy, but the individual treatment went like this. Messmer would sit directly across from the patient pressing his patients knees between his own. Then you have like it's really weird. Staring contest with them. Just walking is and then moving his hands over the patient's body for awhile before finally touching their chest, and then just like. Holding his hands there oh to grow on grow. Your. Thing you sign up for. So this went on. Far Far, longer than you would possibly think seriously, this nonsense would go on sometimes for hours, and finally concluded with Messmer playing some music on something called a glass harmonica, which is basically like a bunch of glass bowls full of water that he would rub and just make weird sounds. Okay I'm pretty sure my pot dealer in New York was Franz Messmer as. A, similar. Thing with the. Familiar! Easier hand in the knees ring contest for can I just get the drugs man come on? You gotTA. Tell me if you're not a cop. Meaningless. Are, but you can't obviously see two hundred patients a day. If you spend like four hours with each one holding onto their tit, your hand while playing the seventeen hundred version of the therm you can dream. Dream Town. I was in the math though. Doesn't scale. So that's invented the back. Get to scale up the operation. The backup was basically like a bathtub full of iron filings glass bottles. It's not an invention messmer. Junk. Table with things on it. Well. You get to the get to the. Part. He kind of cut me all right here. We so forgot the par messmer would magnifies the water. Okay, magic man magnet energy, power. And then, yes. Feel foolish shoot stick iron rods in the TUB to protrude out from the top. That's the stay underwater that would. Go ahead. Just it's not gonNA work. So sick patients. I guess like as long as they were kind of sick. That means you can't see it. It would press the part of their body that was ailing, too. The iron rods and the iron rods would transmit super magnet energy power. I guess from the Bathtub full of trash. And that would care them. That's it. Well, this.

"Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie Duchess of Hohenberger died of bullet wounds around ten forty five am on June twenty eighth nineteen fourteen. Franz Ferdinand was hidden in the Jugular Sophie in the abdomen both passed away before they got to the hospital. Shocking considering the escape death so many times that morning and again the could have ridden in a car with a top closed or major their driver knew about the change in route plans for simply not have gone to the capital. All of Bosnia on a date. National Pride was at an all time high but they did and somehow by complete accident one of seven assassins had the stroke of luck he needed to complete complete. His mission looked in quotation marks. There were many many eye-witnesses Princip was apprehended and beat up immediately. He was given a twenty year sentence but died of tuberculosis. A few years end since people under twenty couldn't be executed for crime. Only Vaso Karlovic the one who is afraid of hitting Sophie and Danilo Illitch the guy. Okay who planned. The assassination were executed for their involvement in the murders. The rest were given jail sentences of twenty years or less. That's not the worst for conspiracy and murder murderer not at all speaking of conspiracy. It's rumored that Franz Josef may have known about the assassination plot and allowed it to happen. Franz Joseph was aging aging and Franz Ferdinand younger brother auto had always been seen as more fit to rule and was more likable all around so had. Franz Ferdinand been a bit nicer could the assassination nations have been prevented. It's possible but then again. Why would Austria declare war? If they didn't care that Franz Ferdinand died. You Know Helen of Troy after all. Well they we're looking for any excuse. Tension had been rising in Europe. But no one was going to declare war without reason and of course no one predicted tiny war in the Balkans would snowball into global global conflict. Princip's bullet was the first of many and because of that it's displayed in a museum in the Czech Republic and Franz Ferdinand's legacy first victim in World World War One not contrary to public opinion. The wars 'cause this guy who just wanted to go hunting and keep his empire running smoothly not go to war. Had He lived he would have done just that until another conflict inevitably kicked domino's of European alliances and put the entire world so world war one was not Franz Ferdinand fault.

"She's got a scullery maid. She's a countess no difference. That's precisely the thinking that is holding Austria Hungary back country hasn't made half an inch of progress under you.

Australians in that order I know oh but uncle don't condemn me. The fate of yourself leave now. Franz Ferdinand Franz Joseph had a very strained relationship two guys with the same first name who couldn't agree on anything else. Franz Joseph was old fashioned and liked nothing more than sitting at his desk in Vienna. Franz Ferdinand wanted to modernize is the empire he planned to restructure the navy an ally with Russia he supported universal suffrage which put in quotes. Because it didn't include women it did include clued South Slavic minority groups Serbians and Bosnians not that Franz was a fan of the Serbs. He simply knew that lowering. The percentage of Hungarian voters in the Empire would swing swing things in favor of Austrian interests. But we'll get back to disenfranchise minorities in a minute five years after meeting. Sophie Tech Franz Ferdinand would have no one else and Franz Joseph was not happy every princess in Europe was rejected. An Franz Ferdinand worked every angle to marry down. Funny usually it's the other way around. Franz Franz Ferdinand enlisted the czar of Russia the Kaiser of Germany and even the pope to pressure franz-josef. To let him marry Sophie and in one thousand nine hundred the emperor now seventy seventy and frankly too old for this insecure line of succession crap relented but with harsh penalties franz-josef only permitted a morganatic marriage. This meant meant Sophie's children could never inherit the throne. She was given a lesser title Duchess of Hamburg. And she wasn't allowed to appear next to Franz Ferdinand at state occasions franz-josef boycotted their wedding as did most of the royal family but none of it mattered to Franz Ferdinand. By far the cleverest thing I ever did in my life is to marry my selfie. She is everything for me. My wife my doctor my adviser in a word my whole happiness this our children they are my whole pride and joy. I sit with them all day long in amazement that I can love them so much And then the evenings at home I smoke my cigar and read my papers Sophie Nitsa Children Tumble about knocking. Everything off the tables. It's also who cozy at precious. Franz Ferdinand and Sophie had an ideal life. It was easy to ignore the fact that outside their bubble at Kono pitched they were hated. And not just by Emperor Franz Joseph and his court remember the South Slavs that is Serbians Bosnians and Croatians Sell slobs were spread between modern modern day Hungary and Modern Day Greece in areas controlled by the austro-hungarian and Ottoman Empire's. This area included regions known. As Bosnia and Herzegovina Macedonia. An old Serbia it also included then tiny nation of Serbia and Serbian nationalists sought to free all ethnic Serbs from outside rule Austria had governed Bosnia and her to go Vena since eighteen seventy six and banned Serbian culture there including singing folk songs and celebrating religious holidays. Such as Saint Sava's Day. Meanwhile the Ottoman Empire had controlled Macedonia and old Serbia since the battle of Kosovo in thirteen eighty nine but in nineteen twelve Serbia. It'd be a regained control of those two territories. This lasted for a hot minute. Before Austria Hungary annexed them to sue can see why the South Slavic nationalists saw Austrian power as the roadblock to a united Serbia especially when South Slavs didn't have the same rights as ethnic Austrians or Gary within the empire sort of like segregation in the. US exactly like segregation in the US. All South Slavs were second class citizens this led to the nineteen eleven formation of a group called the black hand and a secret society of terrorists based in Serbia their motto unification or death. And in case you aren't taking them seriously. The black hand was led by Colonel Dragon Dmitrievich chief of intelligence of the Serbian army. Luckily for all of us he went by the codename APPs The sky had topnotch qualifications nations for overthrowing the government he'd already done it in Serbia in nineteen. Oh three Abbas Organiz the coup that replaced King Alexander and Queen drag the leaders from the rival Royal House of care door to vic the black hands first mission was a failed assassination attempt on Emperor Franz Joseph in nineteen eleven failure aside the group of mass hundreds of members by nineteen fourteen. The black hand recruited members of young Bosnia a group of students passionate about Social Change Bernie Sanders supporters but dangerous the young Bosnians also hoped to free Serbs Bosnians and Croatians from Austrian rule and were mainly based in Sarajevo. The capital capital of Bosnia and the black hand had the weapons and know-how and the members of young Bosnia had the local knowledge and willingness to die for the cause match made an assassin. Yes in heaven. One member of young Bosnia was a young man named Gavrilo Princip in one thousand nine hundred. He stepped into dark room observing a dagger a revolver all were and a crucifix on a black tablecloth. I am ready to take an oath.

The masked man shook his hand and left and Princip was in he was only nineteen an army reject who had been expelled from school and never held a job a real winner but for the black hand he was a perfect recruit determined proven dedication patient the cause and absolutely expendable soon princip was training in the Morongo valley preparing for a mission. Ville you do it. I am a Yugoslav nationalist. shrillest for unification of all Yugoslavs. Who Do not care what former state it must be free from Austria and afterwards end? Your lives is to protect our secrets to the duke. Now you're probably I'll be thinking. Why would the black hand want to kill the archduke? Instead of trying to kill the emperor again. Had they been looking to simply disarm Australian power killing the emperor would make more sense however. Franz Ferdinand was more than just a symbol of Austrian power. Remember how Franz Ferdinand clashed with Franz Josef over whether or not to give the South Slavs slobs rights and Franz Ferdinand was for it which would have appeased many Serbs Croatians and Bosnians under Austrian rule undermining the need for a unified Serbia and thus the black hand Franz Ferdinand wasn't just a figurehead. He was a walking threat. And is the emperor approach ninety Colonel Abbas new as only a matter of time before Franz Ferdinand gain the power to foil his plans so frans had to go. Franz Ferdinand had only an inkling of his coming demise to be fair that's much more than most assassinated world leaders get while hunting in nineteen thirteen franz shot a rare white stag according to Australian folklore.

Franz Ferdinand protagonist in Disney worthy love story sickly accidental heir to an empire interior designer with a target on his back the last Straw L. after years of international tension or maybe he was just an easy target in an open convertible archduke. Franz Ferdinand Karl Ludwig Joseph Maria Archduke archduke of Austria Este was born December. Eighteenth eighteen sixty three in Grozny. Okay but what even is archduke. Good question the rank was invented in the fourteenth century by Franz Ferdinand ancestor. Duke Rudolph the Fourth of Austria. Right Austria was part of the Holy Roman Empire at the time but Austria got snubbed when titles were distributed in the golden bull of thirteen fifty six so they made up their own titles archduke ranks below and emperor or king but above prince or Duke and the Holy Roman an empire just went along with it no. They refused to recognize the title but it stuck and was used by senior members of the Habsburg dynasty from thirteen fifty eight to nineteen fifteen eighteen sounds kind of shady but the guy was also royal prince of Hungary and Bohemia so powerful regardless and super-rich at eleven years old. He inherited the estate state of his cousin. Duke Francis of Medina on the condition of taking the name estee and became richer than his own father and most of Austria not that his life was a better roses us. Franz Ferdinand was a sickly child with lifelong lung problems. The being super rich and powerful he went to the world's best doctors literally Ferdinand spent and his youth touring the Mediterranean cruising the Nile and traveling Asia seeking treatment. First week lungs. Unfortunately this worked against him as his absence was caused for gossip. The Royal Court gallivanting all over the world and his only third in line for the throne if I had that kind of wealth is weak stock doc. His mother died of consumption and Sovan he. At least we won't be hearing about too much longer. God Did you know he brought home. Two two thousand one hundred and forty hunting trophies in a single day last week despicable. on't impossible I pay his men to drive Dr Beasts directly in front of his gun. It's not as impressive as he claims. He's barely a hubs Berg with his aggressive behavior. Yes I avoid court when he visits and I still hear him. Screaming demands a cost multi hot tempered. Franz Ferdinand took out his aggression by hunting recording kills of at least two hundred seventy two thousand four hundred thirty nine animals. He made the guy who killed Cecil. The lion look like a saint and and somehow he's still had free time for other hobbies. Franz Ferdinand was an avid interior designer. With unique taste. It was said you couldn't walk around his home without doubt nearly being stabbed by deer antlers. After which you'd be spooked by one of many paintings depicting the legend of Saint George and the Dragon this collection made him even more of an oddball. All as the Viennese court was fascinated with modern art not medieval legends. That's modern art of the time. Think Gustav KLIMT NOT MARINA ABRAMOVIC and to top top it off. Franz Ferdinand kept amaze of thorny rose gardens around his estate at Kono pitched now he could have just been the royal family's weird cousin had it not been for his cousin Crown handprints Rudolph now crown prince. Rudolf was a player in his defense. He was trapped in a political marriage to Princess Stephanie of Belgium and she didn't like him much either lived. They've done their royal duty and produced a child. Congratulations it's a girl. But not an air since girls couldn't inherit the austro-hungarian throne instead head of giving it another go. Rudolph got busy with other women. Many other women most scandalously a teenage girl named Marie that Sarah Rudolph was nearly twice her age and believe me. We do a whole other podcast on Prince Rudolf Steph. But we'll leave it a suicide pact. Rudolph Shot Marie and then himself self in his mayor link hunting lodge the line of succession went through Franz Joseph's younger brother Carl who was dead to his son. Franz Ferdinand sickly child grown up to be heir to an empire because no one expected Franz Ferdinand to ever lead a country. No one had ever tried to make the Quirky hotheaded prince likable bad news for Austria Hungary. So this guy was an outsider. He lived in a castle with amaze of roses killed any living thing he could and now was also a crown prince. Sure he wasn't just the beast in beauty and the beast unconfirmed though he did have quite the love story. Good evening I'm not I mean. Good evening grace. No need to be worked up.

The habsburgs were obsessed with keeping the dynasty pure marrying only members of other reigning or formerly reigning European royal houses and at the time no member of the House of Habsburg could marry without permission from the emperor so the secret got out.

The results is fifty years old. He is Franz Ferdinand the Archduke and the heir apparent to the Habsburg empire. Which at this point is about three hundred years and counting old. However, the question here is will it survive this day? One assassin tries a pistol one assassin assassin tries a grenade. They're sent by a group called the black hand, they both myths and the Archduke angry at the poor reception. He's received in Sarajevo insists on continuing his inspection of Sarajevo with his wife. The author of this book to tell the story is Jeffrey Worrell who is the director of the military history center at the university of North Texas and right now he takes us into a world of many moving parts. But importantly, this is the world that we see in the twenty first century on fire in eastern Europe. This is the Austro-Hungarian empire the Habsburg empire. The book is a mad catastrophe. The outbreak of World War One and the collapse of the Habsburg empire. That begins this day June twenty eighth nineteen fourteen. Jeffrey, a very good evening to you. Professor Ferdinand Franz Ferdinand. He's the era parent, but his personality is important here right at his death. What is he liked to work with? What does he what does he promised the empire? Well, John, thanks for having me on this show. Great to be here. Franz Ferdinand is an interesting figure he is the air apparent to the Habsburg Trump. He's second in line behind his uncle front Llosa's who in and they're quite different separates them. Franz-josef by nineteen fourteen. Is an old man France Ferdinand is fifty which I regard the young man now that I'm fifty so and he's fully beans, and he's full of ideas. So the blow of this assignation of June twenty eighth nineteen fourteen is a double blow. I it drives the Habsburg empire into a war that it really can't tolerate sustain. But sanely removes the the guy who's really. The sharpish shrewdest most calculating statesman in Austria, Hungary, at the time, and it leaves the empire in charge of the old emperor. Who by nineteen fourteen eighty four years old? He's very ill is very short. Attention span. He's surrounded by advisers. Who are yes men who basically tell him what he wants to hear. So he's very much cut off. And Franz Ferdinand was somebody who had had since nineteen eleven to three years before the assassination had been planning for the succession. It's setup a chancery in the Belvedere palace was shadow war ministry, foreign ministry, interior ministry, where they were making all preparations to take over once the emperor died and put the empire. A new course. So you this assassination something that is often overlooked. Is that not only triggers World War One? But it removes the one figure who might have given austria-hungary better prospects in the war, and that's Archduke Franz Ferdinand. I learned from you that each of these figures these archdukes had clicks around them. And you mentioned Franz Ferdinand click. He set up a shadow government Franz-Josef had a click around him, and then his subordinates his chiefs of staff would have cliques around them that the Austrian aristocracy at this point had turned itself into a one family industry. They commanded everything in the budget. They also had complete control of the apparatus strikingly. However, they were living on the memory of when Austria was powerful in France Joseph's youth. So we have to go immediately back to the period from eighteen sixty six until nineteen fourteen. What can we say about their dreams of who they believe they were as opposed to the facts? Well, eighteen sixty six was austria-hungary last war before nineteen fourteen. Wasn't yet called austria-hungary was the Austrian empire in eighteen sixty six the auction empire fought a war with Prussia and with Italy. It was called the Austrian Prussian war, and it was for control of the states of Germany and the states of Italy and Austria Austria was trying to defend its role Italy, a controlled Venetia, the Portas Denison, the hinterland up out of Rona, and then it controlled the German confederation. Which was this league of thirty nine states created the congress VN and eighteen fifteen and it was controlled by a diet of princes. So the king of Saxony that king of Prussia the king of Bavaria the Austrian emperor. But the Osprey number was president of this German confederation and this suited Austria perfectly. It gave the appearance of great prestige and power but Prussia under king. Go home, the first Hohenzollern and his brilliant, prime minister auto fund, Bismarck, really changed to this arrangement. And so they pushed throughout the early. Eighteen sixty s for a war with Austria. So as to dissolve the German, confederation and reform Germany under Prussian rule, which would eventually happen in these two wars of eighteen sixty six and then the Franco Prussian war of eighteen seventy similarly in the south the the Italians were being organized, by the kingdom of Piedmont who was trying to unify the entire peninsula that unified most of it in eighteen sixty one under the under the leadership of the house of Savoy, the Piedmontese dynasty, and all that remained to them was Venetia this Austrian held province in northeastern Italy, and the people stayed the city of Rome and the surrounding area, lots yo, but also the people marches and and parts that had yet been annexed by the kingdom of Italy. So Austria lost at war. So really there there you could say that eighteen sixty six was really the death knell because they lost their Presidio role in Germany. They lost their Presidio role in Italy. They were forced back onto their own. Territory the Austrian empire. Because of all the internal ructions that went on during this lost war of eighteen sixty six the emperor felt compelled to make an arrangement with the Hungarians where he divided the monarchy into two halves, the Austrian half Hungarian half called Austria, Hungary, granted, the Hungarians of parliament in eastern Austria. And then there was a German parliament in western Austria. And so really the the country was the the idea of the emperor's idea was that he was retrenching that he was shoring the empire for the long haul after the defeat of eighteen sixty six, but what America's asked if he really talks about in the first third of the book is how this this great compromise of eighteen sixty seven with the Hungarians rather than strengthening retrenching it actually desperately weaken the monarchy because it creates it exacerbated the nationality problems that had already been quite sharp before eighteen sixty six but they became much sharper after eighteen sixty six. Because of this compromise with Hungarian, basically eastern Austria, the part that was taken over by the Hungarians as part of this. Great compromise of eighteen sixty seven was was Hungarians were actually a minority. The majority in eastern in eastern Austria, this area called translate Fania area East River where slobs and Romanians and Hungarians were, you know, about a little less than fifty percent over there, and the and and the majority were slobs and remains and so the Hungarians ruled eastern Austria. With an iron hand, they insisted on Hungarian in schools and churches public office administration. They enfranchised only seven percent of the population. You had to be a wealthy educated Magyari or Hungarian in order to be elected to parliament or even to vote for deputies to parliament. So you had millions of Slovaks Ukrainians Romanians really chafing under this very hard Hungarian regime in the eastern half. And the western half was. There was more concern for cultural and language rights, but you still had a German master nationality in most of western Austrian, and the far flung outposts of Austria Galicia where World War One would principally be fought. This also belong to the Austrian half. So the nationality problems rather than being a lead by the arrangements made after the feet agency to actually get worse as you March through the eighteen seventies eighties nineties and into the twentieth century. And so really in the book talks a lot about this. In terms of the prehistory that the monarchy was really coming undone. There were nationalist demands from every quarter from the checks from the Slovaks from the Slovenes Croats Serbs Hungarians Romanians, they all wanted to have more say in parliament, they say Ukrainian-speaking university Ukrainian-speaking schools, more Ukrainian deputies in parliament or check deputies or polish deputies you name it and the emperor was constant. Trying to juggle all these things making little concessions here and there but having a really hard time keeping it together. The only thing that might have served as a hard core was the Austro-Hungarian army, and yet the book shows quite convincingly that this was a lost cause too because the Hungarians very deliberately whittled down the army in the years after eighteen sixty seven making made it increasingly small week underfunded under gun. So that by the time you get to nineteen fourteen. It's an army the size of the Serbian army. We ludicrously old fashioned artillery. Bronze guns often without crew shields. Very low caliber short range hardly any heavy artillery at all not nearly enough machine gun skewer, machine guns per regiment, battalion than the Russians even who are also very backward. And you know, an abysmal level of training. And the other thing that Hungarians do in order to keep the Austro-Hungarian army small because they they don't wanna pay for it be. They view it as possibly a conquering force if the Archduke ever takes over he makes no secret that he wants to re-conquer hungry dissolve Austria, Hungary, and reestablish the Austrian empire. You know, the Hungarians are taking so much money out of the army that when they get to nineteen fourteen. It's it's it's it's all but an impotent force. And so the the decision to go to war in nineteen fourteen is all the more baffling. And it's something that the book explores quite closely to the detail here the Hungarians dominated the empire, despite the fact that they had only nineteen percent of the population forty of and they paid only thirty percent of the taxes Franz-Josef as Jeffrey describes him became a temporizing a weakling man who never attacked the problem. We always found a way around it. And the huff Berg where he ruled Winston Churchill describes it as a curious small coterie and ancient band of survivors eminently Victorian unswervingly faithful another accommodated. It's like a musical comedy without the music while we're about to go to war with this musical comedy. And we have to spend time with two of the commanders who please the ancient. Franz-josef? The book is a mad catastrophe. The outbreak of World War One and the collapse of the Habsburg empire. Jeffrey Worrell is the author on John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show..

"Franz do all picks up the rest of the story from the ted stage this is very interesting because at the time everything was about competition and aggression and so it wouldn't make any sense the only thing that matters is that you win or lose but why would you reconcile after fight that doesn't make any sense this is the way bonobos do everything the sex and so they also reconcile the sex but the principle is exactly the same the principle is that you have a valuable relationship that is damaged by conflict so you need to do something about it so my whole picture of the animal kingdom and including humans also started to change at the time so where'd you go from there yeah after the studies on reconciliation i decided that this whole focus on the negative side of social life so to speak it was very one sided i saw it i'm going to set up a research program that is not focused on the aggressive side but i'm going to focus on socially positive side conflict resolution empathy cooperation and so primates have empathy in the sense that they're sensitive to emotional states of others do they have a sense of fairness how they cooperate when do they cooperate the question of where morality comes from is bigger than that but i'm looking at the components let's say i'm looking at the parts that you need in order to build a moral system so for example the concept of reciprocity you know i scratch your back you scratch my back well reciprocity is very well developed and we've done experiments on reciprocity where for example we look in the morning which chimps groom each other and then you wait a couple of hours and then we introduced food and we see who shares food with each other we have found in those studies that if you have groomed me in the morning your chance of getting food for me is increased in the afternoon meaning that i keep that in mind i have a memory of favors that have been done to me just as we did right now these are from from your lab actually doing this sharing stuff but they don't have to do this to survive i mean their species doesn't require this normally could subsequently essential for the for their life.
