"After he stopped painting his indian portraits and nineteen eighty he turned to the subjects including vampires and mythology. He was. I think it's fair to say a bit of an eccentric who worked at breakneck speed and produced a lot part of the greater process. Everyone works differently but I believe in rituals. I believe in certain things that you find out about yourself. That makes you do things the way you like. I walk into the studio. And i'm like pavlov's dog i don't go in every day. It's very special still. If i had to go into the studio every day it'd be like a job which is a bad word for me. So i walk in and i turn on the music music i like and i wonder around as if i've never been a studio and i now have the luxury of having beautiful campuses Waiting for me every size. I would want beautiful handmade papers with my signature in the watermark. I mean it's very luxury to have nice materials and yet on the other hand people can get really so involved with materials any paper will do any. Oh stick. i did a children's book recently. Where did all the drawings with a stick in inc. Because i wanted to show that they can do those. They were symbols his love symbols ancient symbols runic symbols It's the material isn't really as important as what you do with it.

Was no pressure whether it's from your parents. Your girlfriend your wife. You must block all that out. Fine art if it's the highest form of human expression means self integrity and when year in that studio you must do whatever you do completely for yourself and you must be your own worst critic which means that after you've done it you must live with it decide if it should leave the studio often. I destroy the work. Either at the moment are ran after. I've done it or days later or years. Later i still. We'll go in the studio tonight and destroy paintings because their mind as his teacher wayne tibo said the greatest painting in artists will ever make is always the one he.

This time Fritz kept up his Frank de Trafford Craven Persona insisting over and over that the police had the wrong man, and just in case you're curious that Joseph p Kennedy is in fact, the father of John F.

Quote we all admired the man? Even the district attorney and judge were sympathetic. It was before Hitler's time, and no one hated the Germans after all. If there had been a murder, it was homicide in a war of many years ago and homicide in war is heroic haystack, the approach that first of all, if the British government wanted to have to Kane extradited, they would have to prove it was actually him and not this Frank Craven. Secondly, he would have to have been on British soil when he committed the crime for this extradition to stand the British. British government did not really have any interest in pursuing events from the war. At this point, the thinking was that it could dredge up matters between countries that had since been settled, and that there was just no need for that, so whether we were talking about frank to Trafford, craven or Fritz Duquesne ridden was just done with the matter but new. York still had some issues. However, it was determined that since Duquesne was being held as a British prisoner, awaiting transfer from Bellevue at the time of his escape, apparently at that point he had been transferred to. Britain at least on paper since Britain had dropped the matter, there really was not any issue, and so the whole thing was dismissed, this was very frustrating to some of the police and detectives that had worked on this case, but the judge was kind of like. If. Fritz Duquesne had just gone back to his life working in entertainment advertising, he probably could have had a nice last stretch of years, but decaying at this point was in his mid fifty S. he still had a burning hatred for Britain. He had given interviews in the press were heated, explicitly said so, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four Fritz was recruited by Royal Scot Golden. Who was the head of the order of? Of Seventy six, that was the New York organization that was sympathetic to the Third Reich and believed that Jews were the enemy in America golden needed a spy and Duquesne meet at a job, so they struck up a deal, but when a reporter broke the story that Fritz Duquesne was likely working for this. Pro Nazi group. It was actually Duquesne's mistress, who was Jewish and learned about all of this news through the paper like. Like everyone else who reached out to that reporter to help him get more info? She actually fed him information for a couple years, but decanes association with this group became pretty unclear and fuzzy, pretty rapidly within a few months Duquesne was working instead for the works progress administration. And then he opened his own business air terminals company, which was allegedly dealing in our Ko stock. It may have been a friend or just a way. Way For him to have meeting somewhere. But there's this messy confusing assortment of details during these years that suggest whether he was working for the Nazi group or not, it was kind of an unfocused time in his life, or he was just giving everyone the slip in every way possible, but then in December of nineteen, thirty seven Fritz Duquesne once again became a spy for Germany this time working for the Nazis on US soil. He had been recruited by Colonel Nicholas Adolphe Fritz Ritter. Who was organizing a US? Spy Ring is part of Hitler's military intelligence group the AB their. Ritter put Fritz and the key position in this ring, and Fritz seeing it as one more way to continue his lifetime bowel of revenge against Britain took the Job Ritter recruited three dozen other members to be part of this ring, one of whom was named Williams Siebel.

"It was kind of impressed by this whole thing quote while attendance and the prison ward at Bellevue Hospital. We're acting in the belief that Captain Fritz Shelbert Duquesne the adventure and romance. Her was a hopeless paralytic patient. He saw it through the bars of his cell early yesterday morning and escaped by scaling two fences about seven feet high. The article goes on to mention him. I dropping from the window to the Ledge of an ice house and then to the ground farther below saying quote even this display of agility amazing for a paralytic did not give him his liberty and he was forced to climb a brick wall about six feet high and an iron fence with menacing spike. About eight feet high all this spectacular leaping and climbing to escape prison did not attract the attention of any of the guards or attendance of the prison ward and the absence of the quote. Paralytic patient was not noticed until the attendance made their usual rounds of the ward at four. Thirty A M to complete his ruse duquesne had arranged pillows and comforters. Roughly into the shape of a person curled into a ball in his bed and pulled his blanket over them. So the again i. It's so funny I feel like he set. So many of the troops we see in film and Television The grounds of the hospital were searched once it was realized that he was gone and they came up. Empty and police develop a theory that the escapee had arranged for an accomplice to meet him with a car and a change of clothes on nearby first avenue. Because they had been believed up to that point that Duquesne was paralysed. He had not been considered dangerous or a flight risk. So the few visitors that he had were not documented on any kind of list. Duquesne wrote a letter to one of his friends allegedly from Mexico. The letter stated that Fritz had the help of friends and his escape and that they provided him with a car and had been gotten him onto a plane with an expert pilot who took him to Mexico. The friend Duquesne wrote to brought this letter to the police and it was dismissed as a hoax. They're thinking was that he sent the letter hoping that his friend would take it to the authorities in the hopes that the Mexico story would take them off of his real trail but by the end of the summer all of the other trails had gone cold and police did start to believe that he had indeed left the US and that he was in all likelihood exactly where he said he was which was Mexico. You'll remember. He traveled in South America and knew a lot of people at Middle and South America. That they thought he could have Gone to her safe harbor.

At least until he moved back to New York of his whereabouts but this time he arrived in the city as a new man. Frank de Trafford. Craven Alice his wife had left him when his ruse had caved in and he had been arrested. So this start as craven was kind of a fresh reinvention of himself with no ties. Before this return to New York Fritz slash frank had spent some time as highly said in Boston getting into the movie industry by working with a financier named Joseph Kennedy who had purchased the film booking offices of America Kennedy hired Fritz for PR. Work that required decanes and move back to Manhattan a strangely conventional time and decanes life. He seemed to actually just be working a job and living a quiet life for a few years.

A lot of the other prisoners readily did so but Fritz at a number of the other men were just not willing to even though refusing meant that they would stay in prison for instance making other plans so one night. During a rainstorm Duquesne made his move. He slipped out of his tent through a barbed wire fence and in what he described as the thrill of his life swam through water filled with sharks to the main island where he sought help. From one of those known bore sympathizers she actually knew that it was a little dicey to take anybody in at this point because of the heightened awareness and so she handed him off to another sympathizer and that person helped him make his way to the capital city of Hamilton. Duquesne knew that he could not just board ship. He was a wanted man. All of the DACHSHUND. The ships in port were being so he set up a life for himself Hamilton I. He disguised himself by shearing off all of his hair. Then he made the acquaintance of sex worker named Vera and became her manager. But this was of course not something.

When Emerson asked Duquesne if he had ever been at sea Fritz said no but that he thought he would make a good steward in. Emerson agreed that he would and allegedly replied. I think everything will turn out fine for you. In America. So while the yacht's owner seemed to like Fritz the captain did not McCain was convinced he would be turned in if he arrived in Baltimore with the ship so he plotted an opportunity to jump and swim to shore after studying maps of course as the Margaret's slid past Great Fox island in Chesapeake Bay. He made his move and he arrived. After a swim in Maryland he next made his way to Pennsylvania and then to Paterson New Jersey where he had a contact and a place to stay incidentally ten years later when Duquesne applied for naturalization to become a citizen of the US. He said that he had arrived in. Baltimore on September twelfth. Nineteen to aboard the Margaret as a crew member an immigrant from Bermuda.

I tried to escape I might have murdered someone I definitely conspired with the other prisoners, but they're treating me so bad I would really like better food. So wants to ship got to Bermuda. Conditions improved considerably for the POW's. Although they were still captive and Fritz, as ever was plotting with escape possibilities, they were on small islands apart from the main island, so the prisoners had more freedom of movement within these military camp zones. There were some escape attempts by other prisoners particularly because there were a number of sympathizers on the main island who would harbor them, but most of them were recaptured. Yeah, once once a British thirties realize like. Oh, they're making a run for the island. Because these people will let them stay in their houses. They started watching those houses and The island's a little more tightly even in shackles. Though Fritz.

"About it for the rest of his life. Though yeah, anytime you look up any sort of article about him any time he appears, people will use that moniker. And I still wonder if he just decided like I'm a Black Panther the panther, the Velde in early spring of nineteen hundred Fritz Duquesne was actually injured in the war. He was shot in his right shoulder, and he continued fighting, though even as the brewers found themselves with fewer and fewer successes to be clear, this was a lot of incredibly bloody fighting. There were a lot of men lost for both the Boers and Britain and in some cases, the far militia of the bewers, though were able to take advantage of their knowledge of the terrain and make themselves almost undetectable to British troops. That offered them a chance to open fire without the enemy. Every anticipating it. This is kind of one of those conflicts where you see some shifting away from traditional military engagement in more guerrilla warfare, as the tide had turned, there were concerns that the finances of Transvaal's boor government could fall into the hands of the British and a plan was made to move the country's gold stores to Europe in secret. So, millions of pounds of gold, the exact value ranges from a million dollars to five million dollars was loaded with other valuables, state papers onto a series of wagons to be taken quietly to the coast, and then sent on from there and allegedly none other than Fritz Kane got involved in this whole story, so Fritz, according to the tale, intercepted the wagons with fake credentials that he was carrying that claim to be from Transvaal's President Paul Kruger Duquesne had several other men with him wight accomplices as well as several black servants, and they took those wagons that they had commandeered deeper into the wilds. It is possible that once the gold was stashed. A series of caves duquesne conspired with the head of a nearby tribe to have all of his men killed in exchange for the oxen that had been pulling the wagons, leading him to be the only one left alive. Who knew the Gold's whereabouts? We do not know if this story is true, I feel like we say that. After everything conveniently, all of the players in this story, other than Duquesne were killed or would be impossible to track down per his story, but he used this tale once again. A yarn that would bolster his reputation throughout his life in June of nineteen hundred, he was injured, he had a lance go through his foot, and to Kane went on the run, but was soon captured by the British. It was only the first of several captures he escaped when the town the British troops took him to imprisonment turned out to burn down, and in the confusion I punt, having discovered that their destination was burned down. Fritz made a run for it. And then after finding another group of fighters, a real military structure was gone at. At this point, he joined up with them. They were defeated in their next fight, though and he was taken prisoner again this time he started up a friendly conversation with one of the soldiers to get that senator relaxed, and then as they crossed a bridge Fritz, hit the soldier hard over the head, knocking him out, and then jumped into the river. He managed to hide in the Bush by the bank until the British troops gave up looking for him and moved on Duquesne plans to then travel on foot until he could get to a port. With the hope being that he could get on a boat and be taken to where he could rejoin the main thrust of the boomer forces, but after a few days of walking, he was captured by colonists from Portugal, he was turned over to British authorities from there. He was transported to the port city of Lorenzo. Marquez now known as Puto in Mozambique and he. He was put in an actual prison. It was actually like cell in a castle style prison that made his plans for escape a little bit limited, but of course that was always his plan literally every time he gotten hot water, his next thought was. How can I get out of here? He managed to slip through a ventilation shaft into another room at one. One point, but that was not a sell but then he was seen right away, and was immediately taken back into custody, and put back into his cell vermeer he was shipped to Lisbon where he was jailed, but found it much more comfortable than his previous captivity had been, he claimed to have befriended the jailer, and also had a romance with that man's daughter. Daughter, but whether or not it was comfortable to Kane still wanted out. He eventually managed to escape again. Although the details not clear this time, he made his way to Brussels after stops in kitties and Paris and he made contact with Transvaal's representative there. That was William Yohannes lades. It was there and through this discussion with Lades, decanes, life as a spy began. Yeah a we'll do a brief aside and say that there you could have some pedantic discussions over whether he was more of a saboteur or a spy at various points in his nefarious dealings career. He got labeled a spy. Generally, so even though this particular part to me seems more like a saboteur book. Go with it. late suggested that Fritz pose aboard defector and join the British military. This was something that happened. A number of times. Some of the boars got tired of the fighting. and. Fritz, background and his military expertise ensured that he would be sent right back to the Anglo Boar War there the plan was that he would desert and join up with the boars again, but this plan was really really risky. as we said defectors, not that uncommon, but they were known as Judas Burgers and they were viewed with utter contempt by their countrymen, and it was entirely possible that Fritz would be shot on sight by his fellow before he could reveal his ruse. Ruse when to Kane got back to South Africa in March of one thousand nine hundred one he was horrified. Most of the boar farms had been burned. There was a huge homeless population of bore women and children who had lost their husbands and fathers to the fighting. They were put into camps that were poorly managed, and resulted in really high mortality rates and sheer misery for those who managed to survive, but the real horror for Fritz Duquesne was learning. What happened to his family? he thought because they were so rural, and it would just be his mom and his sister, who was a little bit younger and his uncle, who is blind that people would just leave them alone, but their farm had been burned like so many others. The one surviving servant had told him that his uncle had been hanged, and then mutilated his mother, and sister had both been raped by British soldiers. His sister had been shot, and his mother was then taken to camp as a prisoner. Disguised in his British uniform, Fritz was able to find his mother at a nearby camp, and she was very very sick, dying, according to Fritz later account of syphilis, and she had a seven month old baby. To knew that he couldn't save his mother, so he made her a promise quote. As long as I live I will never draw one breath, but to pay back the English for what they have done I pledge my soul that for every drop of rotten poisoned blood in your body, I will kill one hundred Englishmen. So for Fritz. This completely changed his drive to fight the British. On behalf of his people into just a personal vendetta. He spoke for the rest of his life about how deeply he hated Englishman for what had happened to his family, and he held US special level of hatred for Field Marshal. Kitchener who headed up the British military effort during this time, and had directed this scorched earth, campaign and bird territory and Duquesne immediately set to work on his first active engines. His plan was turned.
Chlorine gas released at Second Battle of Ypres - April 22, 1915
"The Day was April. Twenty Second Nineteen fifteen. The Germans released chlorine gas during the second battle of Abra marking the first effective use of poison. Gas On the western front chemical weapons have been used for hundreds of years at the end of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth treaties and declarations began acknowledging the issue of poison gases by forbidding the use of poisons in Warfare The Hague conventions of eighteen ninety nine and one thousand nine hundred seven for instance forbade the use of poison and poisoned weapons. But this rule was violated in the first world. War World War. One is sometimes referred to as the chemists war because of the role chemicals and technology played in the conflict chlorine phosgene and mustard gas all caused many deaths and injuries during the war the production and deployment of these gases posed a health threat to combatants civilians and people involved in their manufacturing processes once the war began. Germany put a lot of effort into researching and producing these chemical agents. German chemist. Fritz Harbor helped develop Germany's poison gas program harbor headed the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electro Chemistry he was also given an army captain and led the Chemistry Section at the Ministry of war and Berlin helping coordinate the production of ammonia needed in the war many people condemned harbor for his role in chemical warfare though he won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in nineteen eighteen for the synthesis of ammonia from its elements Swedish pharmacist. Carl Wilhelm Shula discovered chlorine back in the late seventeen hundreds as a gas. Chlorine is a greenish yellow color. And it is two and a half times heavier than air. Though chlorine is used in some household products and in drinking water it can be used as a poisonous gas chlorine gas stays close to the ground in areas without wind and spreads rapidly. It is very toxic to humans when a person breeds chlorine gas. It reacts with Moist Tissues like the eyes throat and lungs to form. Acid inhaling low levels can cause I scan an airway irritation as well as a sore throat and cough exposure to higher levels of chlorine gas can cause chest tightness wheezing shortness of breath and broncos spasm if a person is severely exposed could get Pulmonary Edema. A condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs. Chlorine gas is easy to produce and handle harbor turns to chlorine gas for use in chemical warfare. The French launched tear-gas attacks against the Germans early. In World War One and early in Nineteen fifteen the Germans fired thousands of shells filled with the irritant xylitol bromide at Russian troops blew off. In this case the weather was cold and the chemical could not vaporize to pose any threat to the Russians but on the evening of April Twenty. Second Nineteen fifteen during the second battle of. Abra the Germans released nearly two hundred tons of chlorine gas from cylinders buried along a friend. The gas attack created a several MILE GAP IN THE ALLIED LINE. Defending the city. Though it poison many of the soldiers and caused panic the Germans failed to take effective action in its aftermath in the allies held the bre position poison gas continued to be a part of warfare in world war. One technology and training continued to progress on both the offensive and defensive sides of gas warfare.

Ted Robinson: What Does Tennis Look Like When It Returns?
"I talk with Ted Robinson. He has podcast for Youtube. And I said you know what? Let's just talk between ourselves all. Take the audio you take the audio. We could both use it for our own purposes. So this is a fun discussion. You know. Ted Of course from his longtime working tennis on. Nbc USA Tennis Channel often alongside. John McEnroe great friend of the sport. Great broadcaster journalist the sport little backstory about ten years. Ago Ted Rope me into joining him on a segment. We call passing shots for tennis channel. Then Nathan tennis gentle. This essentially is my intro to Tennis on TV. Luckily he covered for my for my amateur habits. We have revised passing shots. Hopefully it's a little better than it was in in two thousand eight or whatever when we debuted this. But this is ted in T- Ten and I are talking here and it's a number of tennis topics. Ted is in northern California. I am hold up on the East Coast. We Talk About Tennis. We asked the question. Does this break benefit anyone? What is tennis? Look like when we return. Is there such a thing normalcy? What is the role of society in a pandemic where we didn't go that far but A lot of fun tennis talk with Ted Robinson and here. We are all right. Let's so we're GONNA try to keep this mayor John. I had the one of those people from the very beginning when the rolling gap. So the ED T. said we're moving. I was my first reaction. Was that's awesome. Somebody is actually taking a proactive step to give something positive. I understand the means. Were not necessarily the best the end though. I think it was well worth it. Yeah I'm Kinda with you. I mean this is one of the four pillars of the sport. And everybody's saying well. There was a breach of etiquette. What about the communication? Could you imagine what would have happened if the F. T. had gone through these channels and asked all of the events that it conflicted with if they might be okay there would be threats of Litigation? There would be board meetings. There would be conference calls. They just said you know what? We're the big dog. We're putting up fifty million dollars in prizemoney. Two hundred fifty six players are going to get fifty grand. If they don't win a point we think the players are gonNA play. Here's our date deal with it and I get it. I don't think this was particularly healthy to tennis in the long term. I understand why people are upset but also I understand from their perspective. They're one of the four biggest events and they've got a right to wield a little bit of power. Well he means we're great we also though. I think we've all been around the French Roland Garros and Fritz Federation enough to know. They NECESSARILY CARE. They just do what they want to understand that that people's feelings of these are extraordinary times. They they do what they do and they do it more so when they have whatever how many hundreds of million dollars of debt service on on a new roof and they do it when they don't have insurance unlike Wimbledon where they don't get any sort of recompense if they don't hold the event I get it I mean we we can talk about Means versus ends and we can talk about process versus outcome. But I understand why did with did. I reminded I say this to you. I think you've read the story for the years. That and it was the early twenty tens I forget which year but Joe Vision. Doll ended up playing the final into Monday. So on Friday of that final weekend it was about six hundred percent chance of rain on Sunday. And you saw that was probably gonna be joking reaching the dollar. Appoint where you thought they could easily take five hours to play so NBC sort of gently a little bit of my father with our great phrase. John McGuinness producer Think about bumping up the star time because they start at three basically three ten I ball which gives you six hours to play five hours a grueling larger fair and maybe WANNA bump it up and started a couple of hours of REC- hits rain delay. No we cannot interfere with lunch so many of the high end sponsors spend any they promote the final day lunch for your day higher very highly successful shafts planks was menus. We do not wrestlers lunch. I always joke that the media Cafeteria Roland. Garros has its paige day and they have a wine steward and they have different chief selection of in your Houston media dieting. Usually being you know you're you're eating soup with their hands in the you know the meadowlands. If the media dining has their own pyeho chef you can only imagine the dining options for the people that have Spent tens of thousands of dollars for the courtside seats but no lunches sacred which is also the review. No this lunches. That's also why they say I can't believe this it's a grand slam. Semifinal in the stands are only half packed those tickets have been sold and those people are on the ground. They just have a fork in one hand in a night and the other and they'll get to the tennis when they finish their last declare and of course. I joke final. They ended up getting burned by the way the Dow Stock Dazzling. It's not play that day but the referee to stop late Dawson. I'm out and in cost everybody in the cost us a lot of money to pay for everybody's flies to change in extra day but across the federation allowed light right to reopen the grounds the next day to two thousand one. Wimbledon I was told was one of the pats at the club. Now getting certainly they can absorb this. There's a million ounce to real the Nicole on Monday with zero revenue coming in to play raft refereed. Amici's explain what's interesting about all this including this whole discussion we've been having about closed-door events where you just hold the events for for TV and not for fans in the stands this has really been an interesting referendum on how much do these events and these leagues Value TV and media. How much do they value sponsors? How much they value common fans. And how much do they value the sweets? And if appeasing the guys who are buying your sweets me more than TV. I I can see why they would renew it the next thing. I mean what's interesting? I this is other rumor so I WANNA informal setting and I hope this won't be used against the the rumor I've heard a few times now. Is that the US Open. A really are hell bent on playing the event this year. They've even look into alternative dates in one of the big holdups is they've got to do right by. Espn AND IS ESPN want the US Open? Deep in the fall when they have all their college football. They've got Monday night football they don't And I think the. Usda has got to figure out. How much do they want to put on this event in how much they willing to do it even if it means pissing off their biggest TV partners you? John that's by next passing shot and the point is you just touched on. I think every sport is going through this. How do we come back? I think it's imperative for chance to come back with competition as soon as they can't sake safely's the obvious caveat here but safely meaning there may not be for a very limited fans but competition. And I'm coming this John Lewis standpoint of players ranked and we can all week each throw a dart and say seventy five hundred below. I know you've already touched on this on. Tv lied about this but those players and by the way there is sorting teams physios trainers administrators the Chiro bars. The administrators of the tourists broadcast entities around the world. All sorts of lamb chops alive. And I stayed. It's imperative for tennis when safe to have competition even if it means competition with limited X. over to play devil's advocate there. I mean I I I agree with you but the one thing I've heard is is the counter to that is look. You're talking about athletes from all over the world from different countries with different health. Standards you're talking about T as you say teams and Physios and journalists and tournaments to have an even if you have a closed door scenario and even if you don't have doubles juniors you're still talking about hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people walking around the grounds given what we know about these spread rates and given what we know about how many fatalities result from these rates. If they're a thousand people at a major which is a conservative. That's pretty low estimate given their two hundred fifty six players in the May draw a thousand people. You're still probably likely to have a few fatalities Do we do. We risk that it. What do we do for a global sport where Western Europe might be on the man but other parts of the world might be behind? Do we say we're GONNA have the US Open but if you're from India Iran I'm just making up countries but if you're from five countries you can't play. Is that fair to still hold an event L. Rasiah and I think this is what's going on hold is this is my dead and company. Has FOR WITH BILL? Walton took me to see the dead New Year's Eve Senator San Francisco and I think everybody should have to add. Lorries is what I'm saying. I think whenever we come at everybody's GonNa be tested right and you're gonNA have to have a badge. The crucial so. I think that's GonNa be the answer at how this plays out. I'm researcher Techni- Martha but I believe that's how it's going after before you have any competition whether it's domestic or international status everybody's GonNa have to have some badges
Cat, Mouse, Lizard, and Owl
"The story. Alpha cat a mouse lizard. An Owl this is the story of four creatures. None of whom loved each other. Who lived in the same Banyan tree in a forest in India? Banyan trees are very beautiful and very useful and get their name from the fact that Barnabas as merchants are called an India often gathered together in their sheet to sell their goods. Banyan trees grew to a very great height spreading their branches out so widely that many people can stand beneath them from those branches routes spring forth. Which when they reach the ground bureau sit and look like columns holding up a roof. If you have never seen a banyan tree you can easily find a picture of one in some dictionary and when you have done so you will understand that a great many creatures can live in one without seeing much of each other in an especially fine. Banyan tree outside the walls of town call visa a cat and I'll lizard and a mouse had all taken up there aboard. The cat lived in a big hole in the trunk. Some little distance from the ground where she could sleep very cozine gold up out of sight with her head resting on her four paws feeling effectively safe from home for no other creature. She thought could possibly discover her hiding place. The zoo stood in a mass of foliage at the top of the tree near the nest in which his wife had brought up their children before. Those children flew away to seek mates for themselves to felt pretty secure as long as he remained up there but he had seen the cat prowling about below him more than once and was very sure that if she should happen to catch sight of him when he was off his guard seeking his spree and obliged to give him all his attention to what he was doing she might spring out upon him and kill him gets do not generally attack such big birds owls but they will sometimes. Gillam mother sitting in her nest as well as the little ones if the father is too far off to protect them the lizard loves to lie and Boskin. The sunshine catching the flies which he lived lying so still that they did not notice him darting out his long tongue suddenly to suck them into his mouth yet. He hit from the album and the cat because he knew full. Well that tough though he was they would gobble them up if they happened to be hungry. He made his home amongst the boots on the south side of the tree where it was hottest but the mouse had his whole on the other side amongst damp. Moss and deadly mouse wasn't constant fear of the cat and the L. He knew that both of them could see in the dark and he would have no chance of escape if they won. Scott sight of him the lizard and the mouse could only get food in daylight but the Lizard did not have to go far off for the flies on which he lived whilst the mouse had a very dangerous journey to take to his favourite feeding place. This was a barley field a short distance from the. Banyan tree where he loved to nibble the full years running the stocks to get at them. The mouse was the only one of the four creatures in the Banyan Tree who did not feed on others for like the rest of the family. He was a vegetarian that is to see. He ate nothing but vegetables and fruits. Now the cat new food. Well how fond. The mouse was of the barley fiend. And she used to keep watch amongst the tall stems creeping. Tell me about with her. Tail in the air and green ice glistening expecting any moment to see the poor little mouse darting hastily along. The cat never dreamed that any danger could come to her and she tracked down the barley making quite a clear path through it. She was quite wrong in thinking herself. So safe for that part. Got Her into the Harry series trouble now. It so happened that hunter whose great delight was to kill wild creatures and who was very clever in finding them noticing every little thing which could shoot him where they had passed by came one day into the Barney fiend he spied the Baath directly cried Haha. Some wild animal has been your not a very big one. Let's have a look for the footprints So he stood down to the ground. Daddy soon saw the marks off the cat's feet. I do believe he said to himself spoiling the barley. She doesn't want to eat herself I'll soon pay her out the Hon. Till we did unto leave name lest the creature should see what he was going to do and then in the twilight he said snares all over the barley field. A snare you know is a string with a slipknot at the end of it. And if an animal his head or one of his spores into the slipknot goes on without noticing it string is pulled tight and the poor creature cannot get free exactly what the hunter expected happened. The cat came as usual to watch for the mouse and caught sight of him running across the end of the bought. The cat dashed after him. Just A. She thought she really had got him. This time she found herself caught by the neck for she had put her head into one of the snares. She was nearly strangled and good. Scarcely even new mouse was so close that he heard the feeble noon hand in a terrible fright thinking that the cat was off to him he beat through the stems of the barley. To make sure which way to run to get away from her. What was his delight when he saw his enemy in such trouble quite unable to do him any harm. Now it so happened that the owner and the Lizard also in the Barney field not ready fodder away from the cat and be to solve the distress. Their heated enemy was in the also caught sight of the little mouse. Beeping the barley and thought to himself. Oh have you my little Fred. Now cat kindle do me any home why the Lizard darted away to the sunshine. Feeling glad that the cat and the owl were neither of them now likely to trouble their heads about him. The flu quietly to a tree hard by to watch. What would happen feeling so sure of having the mouse for his dinner that he was in no hurry to catch him the mouse small and helpless though he was was a wise little creature he sold the old fly up into the tree and knew quite well that if he did not give he would serve as Dino that great strong bird. He also knew that if he went within reach of the clause of the cat he would suffer for it. How I do wish he thought to himself. I could make Fritz with the cat now. She's in distress and get her to promise not to hold me if ever she gets free his lungs. I knew the cat the oh not dare to come off to
Australia GP Cancelled - Heres 5 Times Other Races Were Halted
"One's twenty twenty Australian germ-free was efficiently tussled after McLaren member tested positive for corona virus. This Wednesday twenty Chinese free was already postponed after the strain of novel. Corona virus was believed to have originated in the country. Bahrain status is currently unknown. While the spread increases globally further races may be cancelled but these were not the first counseled races in Formula One. So let's take a look back at a few cancellations from Formula One's past and dig into the reason why each race dropped off the calendar after it got there. In the first place the most recent example a race cancellation the twenty eleven bar. Ingram pre was scheduled to be that year season opener but on the fourteenth of February. Twenty eleven a number of uprisings took place across the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab spring as numerous citizens protested against oppressive regimes and the poor quality of life with us in mind embar rain. One such country experiencing civil unrest. The race was postponed until the end of the season. The plan was to reinstate the Bar Ingram pray to the thirtieth of October and in the process move the Indian grocery to December slot but unhappy with the logistics involved on the seeming disregard for Human Rights Implications the Formula One teams association photo vetoed the plan barring GP officials then subsequently dropped any plans to host the race that year instead wasting for its reinstatement in twenty twelve. The twenty twenty Chinese impre- is not the first race in China to be cancelled. The nation was penciled in Fritz inaugural F one race. Back in one thousand nine hundred nine back then then F ONE SUPREMO. Bernie ecclestone announced in nineteen ninety eight. The Joe Hi International Circuit was to host a Grand Prix on the twenty first of March. Which would make it the second round of the nineteen ninety nine calendar just months after its announcement. F. One announced that the Chinese Grand Prix would no longer go ahead as the FAA had been insufficiently impressed by the facilities at the second which needed work. If it was to appear on the following year's calendar however this never happened in. China had to wait until the two thousand four season to get its first Grand Prix. How'd Shanghai? Well they feel like the Joe Hi circuit describing similar to the Spielberg sects in Austria. We never got the chance to see it in f one action another race supposed to be on the nineteen ninety. Nine calendar was the Argentine Grand Prix but unlike China it had been a mainstay on the F. One shut you off the Argentine greats depression which began in late. Ninety eight the organizers of the race with feeling the pinch and were unable to much the funding that China promise to host a race but as we've previously mentioned the Joe Hi race was cancelled. The Argentine Grand Prix was reinstates the calendar with Provisional March Twenty Eighth Slot pending talks with parameters Formula One. But by the end of January the Argentine Grand Prix was also knocked off the calendar after formula. One was unable to come to an agreement the race at the Buenos Aires Sec. It was deemed not financially viable as several upgrades were requested but no ultimately produced the nineteen ninety eight Argentine Grand Prix. Then was the lost f one race out in Argentina and will they efforts were made to organize a street racing motto. Plateau off at the twenty thirteen season. It never came to fruition. Asterio at nineteen ninety-seven having been on the calendar for over a decade. Esther was one of the more scruffy venues on the floor. Shedu and the EPA had been battering the circus owners for years to make some upgrades but when the FAA formally requested a few safety changes ESTA ZONA scoffed after they've been on the calendar for years without having to make renovations why start now but in response. F. One cude is often pulled esther off the calendar replacing it with the Herath circuit in Spain. The caveat was if astro could make the safety changes required the FAA offered a loss on the calendar on the ninth of November. But the fixes weren't made in time while Ferrari and McLaren would believe to vetoed an eighteen race calendar. How things change as it stood. Herath hosted the season finale. And we know how that turned out South Africa. Nineteen eighty one. Despite the backdrop of apartheid South Africa was due to host the season opener of nineteen eighty one formula one season however the year began under the cloud of political wrangling between Governing Body Fisa led by Yomiuri Ballast and the Construction Association. Fokker led by Bernie Acoustic Visa. Wanted to change the date of the season opening race. Kyle Lami to April the eleventh two months after the original February seventh day. That had been previously agreed. Foam consisting largely of the British teams on the grid also had an agreement with Kyle Lamis Management for the February date leaving the two governing bodies in a little bit of a pickle. The race wasn't council per se but it was run as a formula libra rice rather than a formula one race meaning that it didn't have to adhere to the one thousand nine hundred regulations. We should heavily restricted ground effect dynamics so the focus teams ran it. Kyle Army with all the bells and whistles in a non championship race won by Williams driver Carlos Roitman but the race was ultimately stricken from the F. One record beforehand but with the threats of Krona virus rapidly spreading worldwide. More races may be cancelled their season. We'll have to find out if that's truly the case
Bob Iger steps down as CEO of Disney
"There's news today that Bob Eiger is stepping down immediately as CEO of the Walt Disney company to make room for his successor and that is Bob JPEG who runs Disney's theme parks division last year Argo announced that he would step down when his contract expires at the end of twenty twenty one he will remain at the company as executive chairman and according to a Disney press release will direct the company's creative endeavors joining me to discuss the Disney news is Ben Fritz is the west coast bureau chief of the Wall Street journal he's also the author of the book the big picture the fight for the future of movies so Bob Eiger has mentioned several times that he was going to leave his current position what are we to make of the timing right now it's tough to tell exactly why what why the sudden change after all these years about what you're saying he was gonna leave it at night and then on saying he was gonna leave and delaying he delayed his retirement numerous times over the past decade and he's you know less than a year and a half into it his latest three year contract so it's kind of surprising in its day but on the other hand like it's very I gear to sort of do it do it all in secret and then all of a sudden announced to the world and in an unexpected way so his successor Bob che pack runs Disney's biggest business that is theme parks and consumer products what are we to make of his selection and were there other people who might have been competing for the job certainly our or other people like I think the biggest contender currently at Disney's Kevin Mayer who's running their new screening effort you know that's led by Disney plus he's piece insert top strategy except for the company for a long time you know with Kate Kate back amongst the current crop of executives that is a bit of a safe choice right he's running he's running sort of the traditional businesses like theme parks obviously business most associated with Disney as opposed to remaining which is certainly the future of Disney and you know by all accounts he pick is a very smart guy and a very competent guy but certainly is not so different sort of had like the the Christmas season as much of the house of a great public speaker of this you know Bob Iger's let's talk a little bit about what Bob Iger has done at the Walt Disney company I'm gonna name before deals Pixar's seven point four billion Marvel for billion Lucasfilm for billion and last year the Whopper twenty first century fox seventy one point three billion those are all kind of content movie TV deals what kind of studio is Bob Eiger leaving behind before we talk about the rest of the company I really mean highway I think anybody would have to say is sort of the most successful and tightly run major entertainment company in in America today because he's very focused on franchises they were ahead of the rest of Hollywood and it pops into their business on franchises as you said a lot of that to acquisitions of Pixar and Marvel and Star Wars and franchises are busy sort of at the heart of the movie business these days in an auger was somewhat ahead of the curve in realizing you can just keep selling something Netflix is that Disney would have to launch its own streaming service to compete just like Disney plus is already out there and it's you know is is certainly ahead of what we're seeing from his competitors like HBO maxim peacock which are still to come I think I think later this year so you have to say he's always been for media executive pretty ahead of the curve and and been a leader is not just Disney plus as part of the fox deal they got a portion of who lived in they bought out the rest of the portion of Hulu from Comcast so what does Disney focused on now in terms of taking on Netflix with streaming they have Disney plus they have who is that where a lot of their money and attention is going right now absolutely I mean the future of Disney as an intern came distributor is Disney plus Hulu and ESPN plus right those are it's three major streaming services and traditional TV businesses being shrunk rapidly that's for Disney's putting all its efforts and a lot of films such as going there as well so that if that is the future of Disney but yet the one business they have it certainly not shrinking is the one that's cheapest and overseeing which is part of the consumer products right while all traditional entertainment is being disrupted people still love to go to theme parks and Disney theme parks are more successful than ever these days I want to buy the toys as well so that's sort of the more traditional side of the business that is not being transformed by digital technology I think you can make the argument that theme parks have what's known in business as a wide moat there not a lot of competitors to theme parks but there is something called the corona virus and there are problems that theme parks and cruise lines of which Disney has a cruise line are also facing pressure so what is that business look like going forward and what does it tell us about how Disney values theme parks that Bob Chapek will be running the whole company well listen I think in the short run it's not a great moment to be running theme parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong is Disney does and to have cruise ships so that businesses under pressure right now but I you know presuming I hope we do get the fire under control I think everybody within these businesses will continue to be successful if they have been and you know popped out to tech has by all accounts and done a very good job running those businesses and he generated a lot of profit for the people to the company if that's that you set up for a lot of the revenue and profits comments you know streaming is the future of streaming is a money losing business for now and I think you know with disappointment Disney's kind of saying yes stream is important part of our future but Disney is still a company that that it that it's hard to it's about the experiences people have in our theme parks Bob I will leave a great track record I think the Disney company is a very impressive guy in person a great public speaker there's been some speculation about him running for political office do you think that's potentially part of his future anything's possible right I think you know as he's publicly said that he toyed with the idea of running for president this year and he decided it wasn't right for him but he's you know very politically active Democrat I would not be surprised if he's hoping that you know if the next president is a Democrat that he might you know have some kind of a role in it in an administration I think that's something he would probably love to do it with fifteen profile very well well I'm gonna assume he's not jumping in this year it feels like we really don't need another billionaire and the rice then Fred's is the west coast bureau chief for the wallstreet journal band thanks so much for going
Now with More Regional Sports Network Fees!
"We are here February middle of quarter. I don't know it seems like there's quite the hangover from end of year. Things have been kind of quiet even on the news. Front to there wasn't a ton of stuff But you had when you're looking at supposedly a lot of angst on the weather maps about changes to Google search results. Yes search engine. Watch and search engine. Roundtable were saying that There was a pre substantial rankings. Jumping around few days ago that lasted for almost a week. Which is unusual for them. These days made no statement about algorithm changes but a lot of webmasters are noticing rankings. In placements jumping up and down a lot of changes and it has settled down since then so the evergreen reminder is if you haven't logged into your search console lately now it'd be a good time to do it and see if it particularly if there are certain pages that you see a massive amount of volume just vanish from might be time to go and figure out why you got wacked in the knees or those yeah and get back on base that. Dr Pye had shared an article talking about The zero box you know at the at the top were snippets shop there and that's actually now being considered one of the ten posts but the more interesting than that was over on the right side. Where sometimes you get video media clips? A lot of sites are blocking that trying to shut that down so those that get refused because they don't want those snippets up there but another group had come in saying. Yeah but the problem is. That's where the audio search results get pulled from that right media snippet so if you wack yourself over there you're gonNA lose your shot on audio and smart speaker and of course there's only one result on smart speaker. Either get to you. Don't you're dead. I don't know what do you think about that you know. There's been a lot of chatter this. We'd have seen about smart speakers and like we'll smart speaker ever come round as a marketing. Venue the challenge and the reason why marketers really don't like audience. Smart Speaker is exactly what you said. It's the one result you get one shot? If you're not number one year you literally are nothing. And so it's quite a challenge to get to that and the trick there is. We've been talking about this for. I don't know five years now is you've got to build your brand. You've got to build your brand and has got to be a memorable enough brand that silicon. Recall it when they're talking to you know they're smart speaker on saying. Hey Google tell me when trust insights is open right and Google's got to be able to recognize it but more importantly customers got and remember it and if you don't have that brand power than smart speaker yeah it's going to be no help to you. Yeah you'RE NOT GONNA GET ANYTHING. Done it in the same vein to purchasing via text message. Walmart is closing down their service that they had for buying via text. It was interesting. They took this whole model. That was completely as far away from the Walmart model you could get. Was You know? Urban City people texting to buy stuff and having it delivered straight to them and saying that it the peak it was losing fifteen thousand a year per member which is kind of that's kind of Bologna metric. You know saying that like the dividing the whole expenses the company by the existing customer base. Because that's what ramping up is all about but I was more interested just in the idea of buying via text. Do you think that can take off or is that kind of going too far down the shopping experience? All think about that I mean. What have we become accustomed to? We open that companies relevant happen by inside there right. You open up the Amazon Apple. Whatever and you buy in there and indeed for those things that aren't a lot of cases you open up what pay pal or van Mo or whatever the payment system of your choices and that's what you do it so it seems like a stretch to go the text message out to win. It's just as little effort for consumer to open up the Walmart APP on their phone and especially if they're all payment information to save verification process and things. I don't know why you'd go almost. It's not the same but almost strikes me as like by by fax. Yeah right right I can. I can see where you're coming from especially because you just lose everything. Now you're just sending text via the the text protocol and as opposed to when you're in the APP now there's still tracking your round and they can serve up stuff that suggestions based on previous orders and like you said the payments already locked in so. Yeah that's that's a great point. Why would you kind of waste time going on that route if you've got him locked into the APP and even better yet take that fifteen k? A year you're losing and gives every customer a thousand bucks to spend for free on the APP. You would in theory be better off. Yeah Oh totally you blow up the APP store. They're the the the other thing. Is that if you if you're looking for aren't guard ways. Walmart has a massive disadvantage. If you're looking for ways to get people to buy something guess what. Smart Speaker is a great way to do that. Except for one minor problem the largest smart Speaker Company also speed world's largest e-commerce company. Yeah I don't think we're going to see any walmart results coming up number one speech queries anytime soon. No no yeah. It'll be interesting to see how that that fight shakes out too because still at some point. You have to believe that they're like yeah. Anytime anybody to buy anything we go look at Amazon. I no matter what it was. They had Amazon. Losing some ground in the space. Actually both Amazon and Google losing ground because a lot of these third parties sonos and other speakers gain some ground during the quarter. And I don't know I find that a little bit interesting. That's kind of cool that these are better fidelity stuff you know. This is stuff that people really want the music or the speaker but then of course the the flow would that logic is just because somebody bought asano smart speaker. Maybe they're just buying a Sonos speaker and don't really care at all about the fact that it's smart so yeah in fact. I wouldn't even say you're you can't say directly that you're losing share just because there's more sports aren't speakers out there. It's all about how much they actually get used right exactly and who system they integrate with both Google and Amazon have ap is and stuff for a third party smart speakers to talk to them to be able to leverage. You know a the Alexis the googles of the world. Ibm has one Fritz chat assistance in a very distant third place unfortunately there so the question is for lights party manufacturers or as well WHO's system? You're going to go with. Who who do you? Who Do you want to be locked into? Yeah where do you want to place your bets and it was interesting over Valentine's Day the air pods pro. Where a number one later. I notice even sold out for a couple of days or on Amazon. Able to get them and at the same time. Echo buds drop down to eighty nine bucks at one point which that was almost like an impulse. Buy For me. I came very close just to grab him for the sake of it and then I looked yesterday and their backup at one thirty or wherever. They're they're at so the Valentine's Day sale is over in. Your shot is over that but yeah the idea of kind of smart ear. Buds IS PRETTY INTERESTING. But yeah not taking the plunge just yet on that. Yeah but it is interesting too late when you step back and look at where every place Amazon trying to cram luxa microwave ovens ear buds jewelry eyeglasses. They clearly know that. Whoever wins the smart assistant space is going to win the commerce space and so You know I like this. One reminder in my blogging notes thing to do a fun thing like inappropriate uses of smarter systems like you know putting specific devices that you really don't want a smart in a comedy episode of something down the road but when think about it where else can they put these devices. That are listening all the time and are ready to take your order the moment you think of something to buy. That's the play and people who can't recognize that are going to be at a severe disadvantage. Yeah yeah that's that's what you want to lock in.

"We're back. We're back and we're talking about. Fritz habre's <hes> obsessive desire to have chemical warfare become a thing now. Now there was a lot of resistance fritz encountered to the idea of using chemical weapons. Even from the german general staff as we already discussed <hes> fritz however did not not understand the horror that people had for these tools saying death is death however it is inflicted which is not wrong but kind of misses the point a little bit <hes> <hes> he was eventually successful in convincing the german general staff to let him create chemical weapons core. <hes> fritz in his scientists set out immediately to find a chemical that would you work for killing. This was not an entirely safe process. According to the biography mastermind quote a december seventeenth fritz haber stood nearby is two of his oldest friends friends at the institute gerhard just auto sacher prepared to mix to such chemicals in a test tube then someone called from next door he was needed in the mechanic shop moments after heber left the room. The test tube erupted in a violent explosion in the laboratory was splattered with blood. The blast blew off justice hand but he would survive sacher who'd been looking directly at the mixture next year laid dying horribly mutilated haber came rushing back into the laboratory and according to one account collapsed in shock speechless held in a colleagues arms he could only shake his head is the refusing to believe the scene before him clara haber also came running she to new soccer well long ago and breslau. He had been one of two students who tested her knowledge. During the public awarding of her doctoral degree in chemistry claire proved to be very calm and courageous in the midst of crisis ordering the institute's mechanic to cut open saqer's collar so so that he might breathe more easily so haber starts making these weapons they blow up and kill one of his friends. He passes out in horror. His wife immediately runs in starts doing first aid and like knows what should needs to happen so so there's an explosion yeah yeah yeah i think about chemical warfare mobil one. I think about poison gas which is not explosive read. Some of them are like the chemicals that you mix can be explosive like they hadn't figured out the mixture kind of fucking around and yeah yeah saqer did not survive. His injuries and clara came to be revolted by her husband's work in weapons development. She called it a perversion of science and quote a sign of barbarity corrupting the very disciplined which ought to bring new insights into life hebrew however was not at all dissuaded from chemical warfare by this deadly disaster or by his his wife next he had the brilliant idea to use chlorine gas as a weapon mainly because it was easy and cheap to make an quantity the only really needed salt so since artillery hillary's shells were in short supply he decided to use some of the tens of thousands of empty metal canisters that were normally used to ship paint. He theorized that these canisters could be filled with liquid chlorine in and placed all along the front in strategic locations when opened the chlorine would vaporize into gas and the wind would blow it into enemy trenches chlorine gas is heavier than air so so once it reached the trenches it would go down into them rendering the safest spots on the battlefield uninhabitable. It's kind of genius when you think about it like he's not a dumb guy. It's a good it's a good plan. Eh worked. It was pretty horrifying. See you would paint cans. He really used paint. Yes yeah big not like what we recognize modern paintcare but like these big industrial paint canisters yeah and they would bury them in thousands of them and then open the tops. Isn't there a famous phrase. Be careful what expression you may because the wind might change. I've never heard that one. I think so i i think i think my in in england i remember my parents insane like they make too many hideous faces because the wind might change but i mean i think opening a bunch of paint cans full of deadly choking guests and next to where my soldiers were were camping might give me pause yeah it sir. There's some danger in it. <hes> it's not it's not i mean but it's the same thing you you talked to any any soldier who was in a front line position when artillery was firing and they will tell you that shit often winds up hitting way too close to so do air strikes so like there's always risks with this stuff <hes> and it was considered a worthwhile risk so frit spent months training special corps of citizen soldiers. Here's or if scientists soldiers whose job would be to place an employee the new chemical munitions they buried six thousand canisters around the stalemated battlefield of abra and then settled into into wait for the wind to be right one fine evening in april two thousand fifteen or to nineteen fifteen not two thousand fifteen it was fritz haber leading his chemical corps from the front gave the order to deploy poison gas for the first time in warfare he started the attack with the words god punish england a cloud of sickly yellow gas drifted towards the allied lines filled with soldiers who had barely gotten used to the idea of machine guns. The gas caused mass panic command sergeant elmer cotton. A canadian who is gassed ibra called the chlorine gas poisoning and equivalent death to drowning only on dry land the effects are there a splitting headache and a terrific thirst to drink water is instant death a knife edge of pain in the lungs and the coughing up of a greenish froth off the stomach and the lungs inning finally sensibility and death. It is a fiendish way to die. Do you think he had tested the reaction on like as has he had seen his friend die. He saw his friend die. He nude killed but i'm always curious about that. You just it's like blackbox. I mean i did he know the method of that the way in which people would die when implemented it what he knew is what would happen chemically and what happened when body yeah what happens chemically with chlorine gas is that when it enters your airway it reacts with the water in your life throat and lungs to produce hydrochloric acid so it literally melts melts. It's victims from the inside out now. The hundred sixty eight tonnes of gas that haberman released killed five thousand allied soldiers in a matter of minutes. It's an horribly wounded. Another ten thousand it opened up a gap in the allied lyons that allowed the german army to advance more than a mile which in world war one terms was an enormous enormous gain for that point in the fighting haber was quickly promoted to the rank of captain he had finally achieved his lifelong goal of becoming a german officer at the small cost of introducing a fresh new hell into the annals of human warfare cool yeah proud of him proud of him. I'm horrified and you know yeah. Definitely habre's <hes> destructive invention is is is very much with us today. In syria i mean yeah it's been used within days of us. Recording this podcast in syria and <unk> yeah i mean you see these videos of these children <hes> in syria choking <hes> with that parents around them <hes> and it so very very horrific <hes> and it's such an effective tool that that that phrase haber made is hard to imagine a time when it wouldn't be with us in the future given how yeah destructive it is both of life but also to murrah and what it what a disgusting way to see somebody go. Somebody loves somebody fighting next to you really opens the bowels of hell in the rhody yeah. That's a really good way to describe arrive what he did. It's like he found a way to create a portal into hell in a place that was already hell and make it just that much worse <hes>. It's pretty shocking. I've talked to some people who have been gassed with chlorine some the golden division soldiers in mozell who got because isis deployed some court because it's very easy to make chlorine gas th these guys had gotten gassed and survived but like <hes> it's one of those things even if you're a really hardened veteran and you've been and through some shit. There's something about chemical weapons that is just <hes> unmanning which is a term you'll hear a lot from soldiers in world war one about their reaction to the gas that like people who could hold up under shellfire and machine gunfire would just psychologically break <hes> because it's just it's such a a fucking nightmare. Would it shakes foundation very a you. Breathe has been turned into poison. It's not like something as a bullet coming at your shell coming at you or laura is it is literally this thing around you which is overwhelming icon. I'm feel uncomfortable. Just thinking about drowning. I think is probably exactly the right the metaphor that grounding on land yeah yeah now y'all aren't the only people who are horrified by what for its abraham done on may second nineteen fifteen <hes> couple of days after deploying chemical weapons for the first time he returned home to berlin to attend a giant party that was being thrown to celebrate his victory in his commission as an officer <hes> his wife clara was there and she was furious with him. She thought that his work was barbaric and that the thousands of dead men simply proof proof to her that her husband was on the wrong side of history. Now it's unclear but there's also some evidence that clara had caught fritz cheating on her around this time. We don't know exactly what happened but we know they had a giant fight when he returned home <hes> and whatever went down in that fight we know that after fritz went to bed claire grabbed his service revolver fired one test shot into the air and then shot herself through the heart yeah yeah she killed herself. Yeah <hes> probably largely due to the chemical weapons thing which you know an understandable reaction to your husband inventing chemical warfare yeah i i would say <hes>. I can see that breaking someone especially someone who's been through as much as she has. It's like kinda hard to imagine ever being okay with that and and you can't really divorce in nineteen fifteen berlitz that i was thinking actually selena. Do you let him know how fucked up what he's done right. That's what is what claridge's to do now. She left behind a suicide note. We don't know what it said because fritz had had hidden and probably destroyed <hes> but the day after her suicide he left for the eastern front leaving their pre adolescent essence son with her body to deal with the fallout so again dad of the years anyone know does this. Is there an account of the sun after killed himself. He also go through so yeah. He killed himself as an adult but he didn't live very long yeah this. He found her body to like. It's fritz. It's super perfect yeah horrible this a horrible tale yeah. It's a really fucked up story not a lot not a lot of room for living the longest. I'm assuming not of his whole family his son and wife no no he he his son outlives how much okay not by much <hes> now under his direction fritz is direction. The german chemical warfare corps developed several new species of poison gas during the war including fuss gene gas and the now infamous mustard gas which is even worse than the first gase had deployed hundreds of thousands of men were killed and injured by poison gas over the course of the long and brutal war somewhere around seven hundred thousand total casualties now the result of gas did it spoke the british and the other <hes> their own wasn't gus. Yeah and again is sort of evidence. How shitty kinda everyone is general. I think david french the leader of the british expeditionary force at the time when he hears that poison gas has has been deployed first thing he says like this is horrible and completely uncivilized and nightmarish and the next day is since back home to say we need to make chemical weapons weapons and start doing the same technology company. Escalating debt is so fucked up. We're going to do the same thing like fuck you for doing that. Yeah not very good as humans at pudding pandora's chip beck in the book zoe top even know we keep we make more boxes. That's fucking sweet box. I'm gonna get me a box like that. Yeah yeah that's kind of the history of war so world war. One didn't go great for germany didn't really go great for anybody..
"fritz" Discussed on Behind the Bastards
"Into the millions the scientists in europe began to debate the ethics of lending their brilliance to the nation states that mainly seem to want to use it to massacre young men on the other side papers for einstein and landed on the side of don't do that <hes> he called the war madness and he blamed german faith in the kaiser for causing it for taber on the other hand sign what came to be known as the manifesto of the ninety three was a document signed by ninety three german thinkers and scientists justifying their participation in the war effort now the manifesto n._f._s. to- justified germany's illegal occupation of net neutral belgium by saying germany's enemies had quote incited mongolians in negros against the white race which you may notice is not having anything to do with world war. One mongolians come from. I don't know that one kaiser wilhelm yeah. He had this phrase the yellow peril and just things before world war one assessed by the idea of japan's tentacles reaching into germany. I have no now idea why but he goal the mong. I guess because of <hes> they were. I think to a guy like kaiser wilhelm anybody buddy further into asia than russia was a mongolian a career a korean guy could have said hide him and he then looked at mongo like he was super races. It was nineteen fourteen <hes> and he was the kaiser. <hes> not a new yorkers feel about the middle states. I think yeah yeah yeah exactly exactly and how everybody in the world feels about texas now. According to the book mastermind <unk> einstein watched with fascination and horror fellow german scientists haber in the lead laid their skills at the altar of germany's war efforts our entire much play praised technological progress progress and civilization generally einstein wrote in nineteen seventeen could be compared to an axe in the hand of a pathological criminal his friend fritz haber meanwhile as historian in fritz stern put it began to forge a more powerful acts so einstein's like don't let science be a weapon in fritz's like i'm gonna make signs into the best fucking weapon anybody's ever seen. That's that's the kind of duty is so most scientists. I guess that's the point of the code yeah yeah. That's that's it's definitely the point of this episode he doesn't. He doesn't come across his great. <hes> you might think having made it possible for your country to fight the war for three the additional years and literally saved the war effort on your own your might be content to rest on your laurels if you were fritz haber and just sorta enjoy -joy making the money and letting your country pull both bullets and bread from the air but fritz haber was not done serving his nation. He had a great doubt album. Oh yeah this is this is he's about to put out his chain. Ifra tabor's fleetwood mac <hes> which of course why wouldn't he be at <hes> so for taber looked at it the killing field that machine guns and heavy artillery created and he decided that what germany needed to in the war was what he called a higher form of killing fritz haber was about to invent chemical warfare now poison gas had been banned under the hague convention <hes> but all the major powers in world war one at at least fiddled with the concept little attention had been devoted to chemical weapons because they didn't seem to work very well. Germany's very rudimentary program was run by a scientist who got the job because he was related to a high-ranking officer. The gas is he used were ineffective and the artillery shells. He tried to a fire them with didn't really work. The program was widely considered to be a waste of money. It probably would have died on the vine. If fritz haber had decided that chemical warfare was a fucking sweet sweet idea according to smithsonian magazine quote haber had a difficult time finding any german army commanders who would even agree to a test in the field one general oh call the use of poison gas unchivalrous and other declared that poisoning the enemy just as one poisons rats was repulsive but if it meant victory that general was willing to do what must be done haber according to biographer amarjeet zoli <hes> said if you want to win the war in please wage chemical warfare with conviction so fritz haber is about to do just that you know and then in the second world war the same logic was used in terms of ending the war in japan with hiroshima and nike and i think again looking into the future is with developing new kinds off <hes> you know computer programs and cyber weapons bins. It doesn't take much encouragement once you will in an arena of conflict to say let the dogs out of the pound and see what happens. It's it's a it's a mistake. We repeated twice in the twentieth century and i'm i'm. I'm scared off in the twenty th century we'll and it was it was even if you look at <hes> the the creation of the gatling gun that was the same in the creation of dynamite like both ad in both weapons people were like this is going to make war too bad for people to wage and then one hundred fifty years later. The descendant of the gatling gun is one of the most popular products in the united states. People are like so in love with essentially like the most evolved form of the machine gun that like it's an incredibly popular multi hundred million dollar industry because like it turns sounds out that no weapon makes war too terrible to <hes> to fight. We just wind up kinda worshiping the weapons because that's what people do <hes> which is not an optimistic line to go to an ad plug on sorry but maybe it'll be a weapons company. Maybe raytheon will will be we'll be sponsoring the next at i know a lot of my listeners need to buy guided missiles <hes> for the wars that they wage in yemen a lot of our listeners. <hes> are are waging violent conflicts in the middle east and north africa. We have a lot of lot of generals and dictators fans the podcast so hopefully it's a raytheon on ad here we go.

"Course fritz was not at all interested in this and he did not get involved in fixing the nitrogen problem them out of a desire to stop a famine <hes> instead what got him involved was the fact that a guy he considered a rival a scientist named nursed was also working on the nitrogen problems so it was <hes> it was a dick measuring sort of thing and i should note that next did not consider himself habre's rival fritz thought this guy was his rival because neurons discovered the third law of thermodynamics and fritz really thought that he should have discovered the third law for thermodynamics so physics yeah yeah. He's he's just. He's just pissed at this guy because he came up with yeah. He figured this thing out in fritz didn't and so he hated him and so this guy starts working on the nitrogen problem and for instance like well. I'm going to solve this problem problem. <hes> so at wounded pride rather than a desire to feed the world fritz haber directs is considerable intellect to the problem of sucking nitrogen out of the sky <hes> and he gets a team on it and they start to make progress and he works at a deal with a major german chemical company called b a s f <hes> and they agreed to fund his research if he can figure out a solution listen and they give him ten percent of the company's net profits from his discovery so fritz you know he he he gets to work and he he does a really good job like his his team blues through the numerous barriers and setbacks that beat other scientists like nursed and by march of nineteen o nine they'd figured out suck nitrogen out of the air and produce ammonia they showed it off their new method <hes> in front of the f. and then hebrew through giant party in a local hotel where everybody got so drunk that according to one of the scientists there we could only walk in a straight line by following the streetcar tracks so they do it. They figured out this this has become to be known as the haber bosch process and like i said there's about a fifty percent chance that you're alive life because of this the world population without this tops out at somewhere around three or four billion people wh what exactly how how did he do it. I i mean i'm not a i'm not a chemist. I wasn't gonna ask but then. I got interested to them. It's <hes> what the <hes> there's essentially a big machine that uses they used uranium as a the agent in this big machine to like condense air into ammonium and it would produce like jars of ammonia <hes> essentially and you know you can turn that into a fertilizer so like yeah that's what they do. <hes> and fritz fritz would get a nobel prize for this nineteen eighteen which i mean he really deserved. There's three or four billion people who are eating right now because of the haber bosch process. It's one of those things that lake. It's kind of hard to imagine the modern world without without it <hes> <hes> so <hes> this goes great for fritz. It means not only that he's famous verb solving the nitrogen problem but it means that he's going to get rich shit but it was not a great great thing for poor clara haber. She wrote a letter to one of her old scientific colleagues around the time saying what fritz is achieved in these eight years i have lost and even more and what's left fills me with deep dissatisfaction even if external circumstances in my own particular temperamental partly to blame for this loss <hes> what's mainly responsible without a doubt is francis overwhelming coming assertion of his own place in the household and in the marriage it simply destroys any personality that's incapable of asserting itself against him even more ruthlessly so klay talking about her husband. <hes> things are going from bad to worse in the in the household yeah and it sounds like he's you. You know if you've ever worked in like a tech company with like someone who's a brilliant coder or engineer but like a total asshole fritz seems to be kind of that sort of personality where he he knows that he's prima. Donna yeah exactly yeah yeah a little bit where he like. He decides clara writes about that <hes> <hes> she she wrote in another letter. Everyone has a right to live their own life but to nurture wants quirks while exhibiting a supreme contempt for everyone else and the most common routines of life. I think that even a genius it shouldn't be permitted such behavior except on a desolate island. I think so royds quirk was cocaine. Yeah and that's a better work at better quirk yup carrot claire would have been charismatic experiences with space camp and i'm wondering care if you encountered any deaths dwell as i was going to glenn hey buzz but yet as komo's <hes> future i think future haber is probably where the kids at space camp all the answers when we were eleven years old because they had watched apollo thirteen too many times yeah yeah and fritz's is that kinda guy <hes> which is a lot of his backstory makes sense if you kind of view him through that all yeah exactly so <hes> hebrews incredible achievements led him to political power <hes> as a jewish person. This was almost unprecedented person. He was a christian at this point right. Not i mean what you actually say. Your religion is less important in in germany in the eighteen hundreds parented right. He comes from a jewish family but he is one of the first jewish people in german history to ascend to a high the level of political power. He was named a camera which is a counselor to the kaiser's government <hes> which was like a really big deal <hes> so he's he's a trailblazer in that <hes> <hes> james frank a researcher who worked under haber and future nobel prize winner himself called his boss power hungry <hes> quote he knew what he was capable of and his fingers were inching to do it now. The first world war would give fritz haber the opportunity to exercise all of the power he had ever dreamed of <hes> fritz was who is not a xenophobic hate foreigners or seek war with them but once the wheels of war started turning in august of nineteen fourteen he saw it as his duty to support the kaiser absolutely gently and without question. This was something that wanna papers best friends. A guy named albert einstein who you might have heard of <hes> did not understand einstein was outspoken about the fact that he had no loyalty to the german government <hes> and felt that it was basically madness to be loyal to any government anywhere <hes> especially government that was his anti semitic as the german one however meanwhile didn't einstein also contribute materials the creation of the atom bomb. Yeah i mean yeah he did. He did during the war but i think that was less about his loyalty to the government building the bomb and more about like well fucked up things have gotten. Maybe this'll be better than not doing it right. I can't judge a guy in nineteen forty three forty four for like. Maybe we need a giant bomb <hes> um but <hes> in nineteen fourteen haber said this during peacetime scientists belongs to the world but during wartime he belongs to his country so that's what what haber beliefs this is amazing. I mean this amazed. It's amazing story to me because this is halo was born in breslau in prussia which as she says now part of poland and in the short time off to bismarck could unify gemini he's able to create such essential nationalism this guy this f. f- <hes> fritz would say scientists first duty to his country during wartime is his country so how how amazing this myth of nationalism awesome in the space of a couple of decades able to be so strong that somebody who is previously a citizen of a different country felt this loyalty to germany yeah and i. I think you saw that a lot. There was a reputation in world war one that a lot of the most sort of fanatic german soldiers were were german jewish men because they were suddenly kind of getting like the first chance <hes> that their people had had to be considered equal citizens and i think for a guy like haber with that background there there's almost more of an urge to prove yourself to the fatherland to sort of reach that kind of acceptance that had been impossible twenty thirty forty years earlier <hes> so i do think that's a part part of it and it's one of the many tragedies of this story because things that happen after world war one don't end so well for haber or his family <hes> as a result result of the fact that he was not really seen as an equal german citizen by a whole lot of germans so yeah. It's going to be a bummer but i i am not pretty but you know what's not dire. The wonderful companies that support this podcast with their products and services <hes> so why don't we all take a break roll out to the lobby and listen to some.

"Binge and catch up on past episodes on james brown john lennon episodes come at you on a mostly biweekly schedule and clock in around thirty minutes. He's warning. This is an adult storytelling podcast that contains strong language and is not for kids listened to disgrace on apple podcast iheartradio app. Wherever were you get your podcast. We're back okay so we're talking fritz haber. He's just a tried to profit profit off of a cholera epidemic that sadly did not come in so you know he goes back into the chemistry field and this time he really commits himself. He gets a teaching job. <hes> in physical physical chemistry <hes> the exact field he taught him with something he had no experience with but this time he pushed himself to just study all night until two in the morning and he spent all of his days talking to other their experts and this time he was able to make inroads in the field and in pretty short order he'd gain an impressive expertise in his specific sort of niche in chemistry <hes> but his sense sense of inferiority did not diminish even as his actual value in his profession increased according to the biography mastermind quote like many outsiders he developed a thin skin a special sensitivity to slights he feuded with other scientists in when criticized he responded sharply when the block <hes> habre's new rival in karlsruhe spoke at faculty lee seminars haber regularly found the weakest point in the blocks argument and publicly laid bare for all to seen some resented his ambition and drive the head of karlsruhe chemical institute was known to advise young students and strategy that they should take their questions to heber. He knows everything in fact he knows even more. He's a know it all he was job. Yeah not super well liked. He was also not super successful with the ladies <hes> he hadn't forgot go doggerel verse which she could tim so well yeah that that did not serve him well. He did tell his friend max meyer at this time. Women are like lovely butterflies to me. I admire their colors glitter but i get get no further so creepy. He wanted to sleep with a butterfly. He calls her the butterfly. I mean yes anything's possible in the early nineteen hundred sciences advancing. I believe fritz haber could find a way to have a romantic rash. Yeah step a butterfly actually at the beginning of a horror movie in my mind when you talk about butterflies. I thought it was going to be the opening sequence. There's going to be one of those. Books is dead. Butterfly flight out to his face and clinton is making this comparison of butterflies women. Luckily luckily he's sneaking leaking into the forbidden love yeah now. The woman fritz would finally convince to love him was a lady named clara. Emma war now clara was in pretty much every way a more impressive person than fritz <hes> you know he'd sort of managed to slouch his way into a doctor with with mediocre but acceptable acceptable grades clara earned doctorate too but for her it was a way more difficult process for one thing schools like the gymnasium where fritz had gone did not admit female students so clara had to do all of her learning through private tutors but private tutors. Don't give you the kind of degree that you need to be able to attend university so she found workaround. Women were allowed to attend college lectures as guests. If the professor gave their permission so clara slowly agonizingly convinced professor after professor to let her sit in on their lessons after a year in university. She took the eighteen nineties equivalent of a g._e._d. Examination and got a certification that gave her the same qualifications as gymnasium graduate after all of this she was able to actually start her university career and she did well enough that in december nineteen hundred she defended her dissertation in front of an enormous crowd outed breslau university. Yeah claire was the first woman in germany to receive a doctorate in in like a scientific field and she married this. I loser yeah and she marries this guy she to give you an idea of sort of the the weakness of the time <hes> the the dean of the university as he hands her degree says science welcomes each person irrespective of sex confession racer nationality which is good solid start but but then he added that he didn't want to see the dawn of a new era where women became scientists instead of homemakers so that was that was the level where they're like okay. You did the work and we're we're woken up that we'll like. We'll let you be a doctor but you should still probably just take care of some guys. How do you what do you think clara how to do while he was spouting. Do you think she's had to kind of stand next him as smile a nod as he said that he hoped that he wasn't going to see the dawn of a new era. I mean yeah i envy. I envy has danny on that stage next. It's that old boss did you are not going to envy her. More through the course of this <hes> she gets pretty fucked over in this <hes> this whole tale so you so for a tragically short span of time clara work as a chemist. She was quite good at it. There was no running away from the field when she realized she wasn't like instantly the best like we saw from dear fritz <hes> she was very good and she got better but love makes fools of us all and the person clara m aware fell in love with was a mediocre chemist. I named fritz haber. They married clara moved to karlsruhe to be a professor's wrought wife and to keep her husband's household start out one yeah. It's it's it's a bummer <hes>. She didn't give up her career in science immediately but it seems to have slowly been kinda beaten out of her by the demands of keeping fritz comfortable will eventually raising a family <hes> she and her husband did collaborate on the textbook and she would participate in conferences and symposiums but now that she was a professor's wife. Most of for colleagues just assumed she was burying things that she'd heard from her. Husband and fritz did dot strain himself to correct this misconception so it's it's nineteen hundred yeah. I mean it's still do we have any do you have any like correspondence between her and her family and how's it going at this stages. She is she starting to feel like oh. My god the struggle. I did the private shooters. I got the professors to let me into lectures. I got my wh what they'll call one hundred and fifty years time my g._e._d. Equivalent and now i'm here and actually brilliant chemist and what i have to do is go to these parties and accept. Everyone thinks that everything i have to say is party my husband. She must have just felt terrible. Yes she was not a happy person and <hes> and we will read a little bit from some letters. She wrote a little bit later <hes> but yeah this is not a great story for clara now clara and fritz. I did have a baby boy. Herman <hes> and fritz soon as he was born fritz instantly left his new wife alone with their baby to tour the united states as a spy for the german electrochemical society righty so he's he's that kind of dude taylor's oldest time you know <hes> <hes> get a woman pregnant and then go spy on the american scientific scientific infrastructure. We've all had that happen <hes> now when fritz returned to germany thoroughly inspired by what he had seen you continue. Can you do ignore his family. In order to do science his wife wrote at the time fritz's scattered if i didn't bring him to his son every once in a while he wouldn't even know that he was a father so so he's not a better dad than his dad was. I'll say that now clare grew increasingly unhappy and resentful of her husband during this period surprise <hes> most most of fritz's male scientist friends his side chastising claire for being a bad wife and basically bumming everyone out with their attitude <hes> but not everyone felt this way. Paul cross rosso was one of papers students and he was also clara's second peasant. He wrote quote she completely recognize the outstanding talents and personality of her husband but it certainly was not the easy for her to be the wife of a great man. She sacrificed her profession for him and she never really found the necessary substitute for it and family life. She had no interest in playing a prominent social role nor was she particularly good at it but so this cousin the second cousin of hers says it favors a brilliant scientists so so patient signed to grow it starts to grow during this period and his his brilliance is not in. He's not one of these like <hes> eureka. I've i've come up with this conclusion sort of scientists who buries themselves in the work and then comes up with genius new thing like he's <hes> he's a brilliant scientists in terms of his ability to manage teams of scientists and collate data between them and work towards solutions wins and be like this is our goal you need to do this. You need to do this. Oh you found this out that gives me this idea like that's kind of what habre's brilliant debt and so when he's just sort of working in a lab he's nothing special but once he starts to get enough of a position that he starts managing teams of people his particular genius starts to become known and that's really starts happening in like around nineteen four. He's a muster yeah yeah. He's a he's what you'd call like an industrial chemist and he's a genius at at that <hes> he might be the best there ever was now <hes> starting in nineteen. Oh four fritz receives a letter from the managers of the austrian chemical works company <hes> informing him that they had found traces of ammonia in their chemical plant. Now this is significant because ammonia is the most potent source of nitrogen in <hes> in nature now nitrogen trajan is the primary building block of food plants and animals need it to grow fertilizer is mostly nitrogen but nitrogen isn't an easy thing to come by in the natural world because because there's only so much of it in the soil and its depleted by growing crops now for thousands of years before this point farmers would plant stuff like legumes <hes> and other nitrogen rich crops in order to a plow them back into the soil to keep it fertile but as the modern era dawn and the human population exploded the earth started to run into a nitrogen crunch careful organic farming did not scale well to two large populations and the longstanding strategy of abandoning farmed outland for newland stopped working in an era in which all of that land already been settled and farmed so in the early nineteen one thousand eight hundred prominent scientists start to realize that there's a massive famine on the way when the world's nitrogen stores are going to be depleted in the earth's going to stop being able to support all of the people who live on it <hes> at the moment nearly nineteen hundreds farmers were able to replenish their soil with fertilizers derived from huge nitrogen deposits in chile but those deposits. We're set to run out in a couple of decades. So is that bud poop yeah yeah bird poop is one of the major major sources of guano salt peter <hes> so they've still got fertilizer for the time being but everyone starts to realize in the early nineteen hundreds that like by nineteen thirty or forty everyone's going to be dying because we just can't keep growing food <hes> <hes> so the fact that these austrian industrialists had found a monja created as a byproduct in their chemical plant could be a huge deal. <hes> it was common knowledge college at that point that the air around is filled with nitrogen but nobody knew how to like get out of the air anybody who could figure out how to do that would basically be able to create bread from the air which is kind of like the scientific holy grail of the day <hes> but of course.

Now back to the story. In September nineteen eighteen thirty nine year old Fritz Harmon met seventeen year old freetyle rota in a cafe rota had run away from home and needed a place to stay Fritz Harmon using a false name told rota he was a detective and offered to help for. It's always assumed positions of authority when lying like this. After meeting at the cafe wrote to introduce Fritz to school friends for its Harmon gave the boys presence and took them into the woods where he seduced them. Several times afterward Fritz took rota back to his apartment where the two smoked and as Roma would later tell us friends had fun a few days after Fritz met rota Fritz took him to his small grimy apartment. Once again, the pair smoked and chatted as they had done several times before but as the night went on Fritz grew more aggressive. He began touching rota and attempting to seduce him the rota and Fritz had had sex before something made rota uncomfortable on this night. He spurned for its Harman's advances. That's when Fritz became angry. He grabbed rota held him down and forcibly sodomized him. Then in the midst of the rape. He bared his teeth like a rabid animal Fritz bit down on wrote his throat and r-. Ripped through his Adam's apple rota bled out and because of the damage to his windpipe died of his fixation. Fritz Harmon later claimed that the act of sexually assaulting rota produced a murderous urgent him that he had never felt before he described as sudden uncontrollable desire to bite through wrote his throat. It's possible. He was telling the truth erotic, Fono files or lust murderers are defined as individuals who get an intense sexual satisfaction. From killing these individuals could be overcome with the urge to kill during a sexual act. According to research by Dr are p Britain, these killers are typically timid and introverted people who then unleash during sex Fritz Harmon was usually characterized as timid police describe how he fidgeted constantly pulling his fingernails and running his hands through his hair, his soft voice. And sometimes childlike tendency to court sympathy gave observers the impression he cr-. Saved attention but struggled to relax in the presence of others. Other studies described sexual sadists as having intense desires, which they worked to repress. Dr p e Dietz has published a paper examining thirty sexual sadists of those examined forty three percent identified as gay and twenty percent reported dressing in women's clothing. We know it's Harmon was abused by his father for exhibiting feminine tendencies, it's possible after such severe and continuing mistreatment his repressed desires made him unable to control himself during sex in stark contrast to the tightly controlled and meek behavior, he showed when interacting with authorities this fits with contemporary descriptions of Harmon, but it doesn't fully explain the depravity of Fritz's later actions. Thirty nine year old Fritz Harman stood over the corpse of Friedel rota, though, it was the middle of the night, and he was exhausted. He didn't alone self any rest. East? He drank a strong Cup of black coffee. Cupboard wrote his face with a cloth and cut him open using litany of knives. Buckets and rags he carefully removed wrote his flesh decapitated, the body and broke the bones. When he was done Harmon stashed pieces of wrote his body and a suitcase and made nightly trips to the stock ner cemetery over the next few weeks. He buried parts of rota keeping the remaining parts hidden behind his stove rotas was the only body for its Harmon is known to have buried during his later confession Harmon reported he was sick for eight days. Following a road is murder. The sickness prevented him from disposing of wrote his body as quickly as he wanted to according to him. It was the dismemberment and not the murder itself. That disgusted him after Friedel rota been missing for a couple of days. His France reported missing.

"To do list for five thousand dollars. So I'm at a point here where where I'm building out the the Fritz studios right. You can see. I mean, I've got this little portable green screen behind me, and I've seen some other folks on twitch actually painted the walls in their their spare bedroom that they're, they've turned into their home studio. They've painted to the walls green, that's dedication. Well, then what they do is they have different scenes that they can walk into and it's whatever they sub out in the background. It's all a lie.

No. And you gotta know that we just did a show James monta MAG. No, where he said for his five thousand, he wants just Fritz's rig. Okay. Chatroom rig isn't five grand. Pretty sure it's not seven. Out of your league. It's now I'm on the spot. No, I've been slowly building over time.
