Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.
75 years after Hiroshima, they're still feeling its impact.
"This bomb has this frank for twenty thousand tons of TNT. Harnessing, the basic power of the universe. What I fifteen I am on August six, nine, hundred, forty, five, the US Air Force dropped the little boy uranium fission bomb on central hero. Shema. Making it the first city ever to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb. On August nine Nagy became the second when the bomb exploded around thirty percent of Hiroshima's population that were killed instantly many more died in the months and years to come. Now, the bombs brought to an end to world war two but the wool was horrified at the human cost. Russia has since become a byword for nuclear holocaust forever linked to the words never again. Now, this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki joining me to reflect on the legacy of those events. Tashi. Tauch. She is assistant professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and the author of political fallout, nuclear weapons testing, and the making of Global Environmental Crosses. Welcome. Tasha. Thanks for having me and Michael Gordon Professor of history at Princeton University and Co. it is a of a new book called the age of Russia. Welcome. Welcome. It's very good to be here. Now, Michael the fear of the nuclear age is the period after World War Two when the US dropped the bomb. The fee was that the nuclear weapons would become a common part of conventional warfare but in the seventy five years since he Russia and Nagasaki, there's not been a single bomb dropped in a conflict. Question is this because deterrence works or have we just been lucky I would say we've mostly been lucky It's quite rare that there are conflicts between nuclear-armed nations. The major example is the nineteen sixty, nine border conflict between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. So there haven't been many occasions for things to escalate, and there's a strong incentive in those cases to de-escalate. There have however been very close near accidents whether missile just that needing on its own or people launching almost launching in fear of an attack and there. Have Been Plenty of conventional wars that could have escalated that way. So by and large, we've been lucky but we've been abetted by the fact that there has been an ambient taboo that has grown over the years against nuclear first use although that is rarely the policy of any nuclear power. Okay. Now from an Australian perspective, Tic- Japan was seen as an aggressor in the war, the war crimes but also as a victim because of the destruction wrought by the nuclear bombs have is the wool remit in Japan now aggressor and victim. Tarshi. Many pass through consider themselves as victims thinking that Japanese were misled by the government inter- Disastrous Wall Conquest. In this view here stands at the as the ultimate symbol of Japanese victim. But today is victim narrative faces two competing accounts. One is to recognize Japan's acts of wartime aggression, including tweeting massacres, forced labor, and sexual violence. If we see hero Shimmer from this perspective, it takes on a whole different meaning not. Not as a national tragedy, but rather as international event. killed not only the Japanese residents but also many colonial subjects and allied. POW's who are present in the city at the time of the Tom Bombing. The other interpretation that has also gained for Japan is to see the wartime conduct Japan as an act of self defense. This This lesion is narrative recaps here. As the ultimate proof of Western aggression. So fitting the predation of Japan's Joel Roles as. Aggressor and victim during the war will gain the upper hand in the future will depend on how sweet society around the world comes together and develops a shared understanding of the complex legacies or Corna reason on the war in the Asia Pacific region and back to the United States markle. There's a popular conception that Washington had to drop the bomb that it was the only way. To win the war, of course, the war in Europe come to an end in May of forty five. This is early August two, forty five is that true I mean what? What President Truman's options? So. This is a great question and it's one with a lot of confusion around it. Functionally. The only way the only government that had any power to end the war was the Japanese government which was in a position to surrender and the question was when would that happen would have happened later or earlier by summer nineteen, forty, five, it was already clear that the war was militarily lost. President Truman and the US government in general had basically fixed options of what they could do to try and encourage the Japanese government to take that move. There's only two that people usually talk about dropping the atomic bomb or invading the home islands of Japan. Both of those were on the table also having the Soviet Union inducing them to enter the wars of belligerent which happened on August eighth increasing the intensity of firebombing tightening the blockade of foodstuffs into the home islands. and modifying the terms of unconditional surrender to allow Japan to keep the emperor. The interesting thing is all six of those happen Truman pursued all sex and the war ended. It's unclear which ones were determinative. But the point is there wasn't like we had one option or nothing else. The US had plenty of options and exercised actually all of them. On the one level target for the bombs was obviously Japan on another level. Real target was the Soviet Union. How did the Kremlin of you? He Russia Mirror Negga? Second Markle. So. Really, the question here is a small set of people within the Kremlin stolen and his closest advisers and you that there was an atomic bomb project going on in the United States for years they've found that out from spies from Britain from spies in the United States, and they had their own uranium enrichment and bomb development program that was going on at I would say a medium scale What happens after the destruction of Hiroshima is I in absented himself for a few days he went into a depression and didn't. React to any of his advisors and then immediately massively escalated the Soviet development of their own atomic bomb. So they were both caught by surprise and not caught by surprise. It's true that the Americans didn't always think about the Soviet Union as a factor in any decision related to how the war was going to end but they also very strongly, we understood that the key issue was trying to get this the Japanese government to surrender faster because the faster they surrendered the less impact. The Soviet entry in the war would have to how the end game would play out in Asia, my guest, Michael Gordon, and Tashi Hitachi, and we're reflecting on the seventy fifth anniversary of Hiroshima. Tashi. One, hundred fifty thousand atomic bomb survivors still living in Japan. In fact, as a guest of Japan's Ministry of Foreign. Affairs this would have been in September twenty, sixteen I met one of one of the survivors now they're all in education and public law has plied an important part in shaping Japan's post-war Pacifism. Now, as generation dies out, is the role of pessimism in Japanese politics is that diminishing especially in the face of Rausing China Toshi? I don't think the passing of the atomic bomb survivors will diminish the strengths of pacifism in any short-term. The correctly memory of human magazine Japan has been fairly robust and the taken deep roots in popular culture. I can think of a good example that is Japanese animated wartime drama film released just four years ago in two thousand, sixteen cold in this corner of the world. This picture accounts of the wartime life in here she was a smash hit in the box office. Be, atomic bomb survivors will also active in passing down lessons from the world's first nuclear war to the next generation. The city's over here streaming nagy training. Many Japanese Ron Tears as storytellers who share the testimonies are waging victims and a second generation survivors are spearheading efforts for peace unjustice. Well, that brings me to today and really in the last that he is the end of the call was thirty years ago the US. And the Soviets on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty non stop this was President Bush senior and Gorbachev in Russia in the inside at Union. Then just as it was collapsing now, both agree to significantly reduce their nuclear stockpiles and of course, the updated treaty between Moscow and Washington that expose I. Think it's February Knicks Jeez. So that's just a few days after the next president is warning Michael Do you think it will be resigned. I think that's entirely dependent on the results of the election. Joe. Biden has indicated that he would refine the treaty The trump administration has had many opportunities to re-sign the treaty, but they have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Russia's indicated that they're very interested in extending
The New Tech Driven Home Healthcare with Rachel Munsie
"More. Welcome back to the outcomes. Rockets saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting. Rachel Muncie she's on the founding team of tomorrow health, a technology driven home healthcare company changing the way individuals and families manage their care. She leads business development focusing on partnerships and sales strategic marketing initiatives, and new market expansion. She was formerly in healthcare investing, just working to unpack the US healthcare system and understand how we can treat. Treat better incentives through innovation policy and Advocacy Rachel received her bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and attended Mit for her MBA. Before leaving to build tomorrow health, you know the M E, durable medical equipment field definitely is a need for innovation and the work that Rachel and the team at Tamar Health doing is super unique and I'm excited to be covering that with you Rachel today and then. So I wanna give you a warm. Welcome. Welcome thanks for joining us. Thank you so much solve. Really appreciate it, and thanks for having me absolutely. So before we dive into tomorrow health and you know what makes you guys so unique and different in that space I love to hear more about you Rachel and what inspires your work in healthcare. Absolutely. So I am most inspired about solving the problems of healthcare and really the ones that we've all faced. So we spend more. More on healthcare in the US than any other country in the world. But our outcomes are worse and everyone understands what this means on level. I personally once racked up a bill equal to my rent payment during one doctor's appointment because even though I knew I'd have a high deductible plan and even though I knew I'd hardly spent anything against it. I, mean, I work in healthcare I throughout all of practical knowledge because I. I was anxious and nervous, and in a vulnerable situation. I think when you're sitting in a doctor's office or hospital, you rarely compare prices or shop smartly and most people don't even know that you can do that. So most of the time we do things because we're scared or rethink what choice do I really have my health is at stake and I think sometimes the prices in our system take advantage of that. So took me. Me a while to internalize I. Think most people don't realize is that we all pay the price for our broken health care system whether we know it or not. So either through lower take home wages or higher premiums or higher deductibles or even higher taxes and I actually still have those outrageous bills sitting on my kitchen table as reminder to myself that these costs aren't normal and i. think we deserve better and so since digging. Digging into this industry I as an investor, and now as an operator, I'm just constantly floored by the unnecessary complexity that I found in every corner of the go system and no one understands any of it. I. Think People Inside the industry barely do ominous the result of some wacky incentives that run. Ima- and not always a bad intentions. But this is exactly how that knowledge between industries, stakeholders and patience and the broader general public. Public just become so massive, and so when it came to my decision to help found tomorrow hull, it's not an exhaustive solution by one clear trend with pasta impact on all of these stakeholders is the shifting of more care to the home, which is higher quality, and as we know much lower cost of care setting. Yeah. You know you call out a lot of issues that were faced with I think every one of us. You're listening to this podcast today. You're thinking Yup I've been screwed with a big medical bill or and if you haven't which I'm sure you have if the very small chance that you haven't I'm sure somebody in your family are a close friend has dealt with it and I think it's great that you keep that bill on your kitchen counter Rachel, just as a reminder, right of the why behind why we're doing what we do and? Yeah. Care in the home is becoming that much more important with Kobe among us. So reimagining that healthcare is critical as you guys like to coin it. So talk to us about the work at tomorrow health and what exactly you guys are doing to add value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yeah. So at tomorrow health, we are a technology driven home healthcare company, and we are a full stack provider of healthcare, and we're a trusted partner that you can depend on to coordinate and deliver specifically home medical equipment supplies and support all in the. The comfort of your own home, which as you mentioned, all in covid world is extremely important and our big focus envision is on restoring home as the focal point for healthcare delivery and the Genesis of tomorrow health was personal for us, our Co founder and CEO Bj Qatar was working at Oscar. So He's well-versed in the complexity of healthcare and his mom was diagnosed with stage, three cancer, and she needed about a year of intensive home healthcare. Luckily, she's now doing much better, but he was responsible for coordinating. So much of that. That he and his family had to work with over a dozen, different providers would coming out of her home to get what she needed, and after about a month when she was discharged from the hospital, she ended up having to go back three times in her first one pound because of delays or equipment failures relating to her oxygen therapy, and so for patients, and also their families who are usually playing the role of caregivers edition be this hard, and then from a systems perspective whilst does the whole matter and you know by. By dramatically reducing our dependence on hospitals on ers on post acute care sites were able to get high quality care at home and also bend the cost curve in healthcare system. So by working with tomorrow health, we think it makes it easier to shift that care to the home because one of the legs of the stool for homebase healthcare are these hall medical equipment supplies and support

Travel to Penang Malaysia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about paying. I'd like to welcome the show ruth from Vancouver and that's not the one in Canada but the one in Washington and that's the state of Washington. DC. WHO's come to talk to us about Penang? Malaysia Ruth Welcome to the show. Thank you. Glad to be here and some of you met ruth. If you traveled a with me to Morocco ruth was one of the people on that trip and we're friends from long before that and you have spent the last. Three years up until the coronavirus down in southeast. Asia's that have I got. The timing writer was longer than Well, we had three years in Singapore. And then we were into our just pass our first year in Penang when the covert virus and I actually was here in the states and got stranded here as the movement control order went into effect inning and I wasn't able to get back into the country. So we're now home back in the state of Washington and Yeah. But Penang was our home for about a year. Will, and when we get to the point where we can, why should someone go to Penang? Penang is just a very interesting piece of as. You have three distinct people ethnicities who make up panning opening is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's the second smallest. It's the only one that has a island plus mainland components, and the island is the part that we are familiar with. That's where we lived. We lived in Penang Island Penang. Island. Has Like I say three different distinct groups. There's the Chinese, which are about fifty percent, which is more than the most of Malaysia, your Chinese percentage, and then you have forty percent Malay- and about nine percent of the Indians who are mostly Tamil speakers so there from southern. Yup and then we have the expert groups and in particular, there's one large group of experts that now reside in Penang as a result of Malaysia's M. M.. Two H. Program, which is Malaysia my second home. So quite a few people have actually retired they've made it their permanent home. So it's a very eclectic group of different ethnicities and different cultures and they do not intermixed very much. So you really do have these distinct. And distinct foods and distinct ways of living and languages, and you can do it all in a very small space and people have been to Singapore Penang. It's about the third of the size of Singapore. And only has about fifteen percent of the population of Singapore's on the island about seven hundred thousand people that makes it much more spread out. You're not just in these big crowds of people and yet you're experiencing the same kind of cultural mixing and interaction that you might get in Singapore. I like to think of Penang sort of like Singapore before Lee Kuan Yew came in and modernized and sanitized. Everything, so Penang gives you that old feel I think of what Singapore would have been like. Before everything was cleaned up and so and not to say that it's dangerous or unhealthy to be there but you just get that kind of older. Feel you have people cook it on the streets for food and things like that. So the I highly recommend going just because it's different than a lot of other places you might go in Asia will in terms of Malaysia we're on or just off of the mainland portion of Malaysia in the. West Coast in the north. So we on cow before we're south of that which is way up by the border with Thailand and then we`re Two thirds the distance from Kuala Lumpur up to the type border. Yes yes. Like you say we're to the west of the mainland and very close actually up. I think there's only one one state may be two that are above pinning on the mainland before you get to. Thailand. So it is still pretty close to time. There is some influence of Thai Culture Thai food. In. What is in Penang Yeah I? Think you're forty miles from Thailand. yes. Yeah and what's interesting about pinning to is, and we'll talk about this a little bit more but you came and visited us when we were in Singapore and we went to the parental museum to remember that in singer. So Penang is one of three places in that Malaysian Singaporean area that has Parana Akin Chinese or also called the Straits Chinese also called the bubble Nokia's so they are located in Penang Malacca and in. Singapore. So I've actually been to all three places. I've been to the museums in each of those places and it's a fascinating culture. People from that culture came from China from mainland. China many years ago. treaters remember correctly yet and they came in and adopted many of the Malay Practices and cultures, and some of the foods and sort of turn them into their own. They were usually very very wealthy and their homes were extravagant and their furniture was lavish and carved, and they also incorporated some of the colonialism of the British. So they had fancy dinner ware and fancy glasses and mirrors and their homes were just beautiful and in Penang you can go onto Church Street, which is down in Georgetown and there is a Paranthan Museum there for Twenty Ringgit. which is almost nothing that's four ringgit to a dollar. So it's five dollars you can go in and get a tour of the product museum there, and it's fascinating. It was owned actually by a gangster. A Chinese gangster and his family I and It's now part of the state I believe as a museum and they do try to preserve this product can culture because it is only really in these three distinct places.
Georgetown Professor Judy Feder Discusses Long Term Care Policy
"With me again to discuss long-term care policy is Georgetown's Judy feder. So with that as background judy, let me begin by asking why did the fifteen members of the thirteen commission differ on financing? The commission David was a something of an afterthought poorly prepared poorly set up by the authorizing legislation and lacking in backing in terms of congressional support or where administration supports a move forward. and it was treated I. Think. We've behaved as the kind of of after thought it was the members were was a bipartisan commission. The charge was to develop a proposal to finance long-term care but the the leadership and the Republicans on the proposal were really looking for I'd say lowest common denominator of agreement on anything and there were five Democrats on the on the commission who. WHO WOULD NOT PREPARE? Didn't want to go there really wanted to address the charge didn't necessarily agree with what others. Were coming to agreement on and so it really I thought was pretty useless. Okay. Thank you for that. So I asked about financing obviously because that's really the crux. Or has been the frustration here in getting policy. Let's go to. The details of your twenty eighteen paper that you co-authored. This was partially funded by H S. it lays out in detail a long term care policy, and let's start with WHO's eligible under this proposal and What and how benefits are triggered. That eligibility for public benefits on this in this proposal is constrained in two or defined in two ways the the first definition what we wrote about was we developed was a proposal that would operate very much like social security so that you would have to work to something some number of quarters and paid in along with some additional financing and the. So that would be a first criterion for eligibility but then the trigger for the benefit would be based on your impairment level which we tied to what we refer to as the hippo level requirements, the the. Level of impairment two or two or more. Impairments in activities of daily living with some level of cognitive impairments. Those are the requirements for tax preferred private, Long Term Care Insurance that were in the law that was called hip. and so that that that's the the the level of impairment you would have to demonstrate and we have in addition can. Listen for eligibility, which is rarely the innovative aspect of the proposal. We created a a waiting period period between when you experienced that level of impairment and when you would receive benefits and the length of that pair of that waiting period was would buried with income so that if you were had low in relatively low income, you would have a shorter period and if you had a high income, you would have a longer period. The rationale for that design was to find a A to define a public benefit. That would not eliminate individuals responsibility for preparing as it's often said, preparing themselves for long term care needs. The now, when people say people ought to prepare for themselves where we have no viable insurance mechanism to prepare, it's nonsense because people can't save and shouldn't say that kind of money but with and insurance public insurance plan back 'cause a waiting period that based on income. would. Give people some idea of the gap that they would be expected to fill with either their own resources or with private insurance coverage and private long term care insurance which has failed as an industry has is not willing has not demonstrated a willingness to take on truly catastrophic benefits, the tail and of need that's what the public plan was doing but it is not implausible that if the public program were there at the back end that private insurers would come in and to offer a meaningful product at the front and. That product would be more desirable more understandable wants a public benefit also existed. So the idea was to create a public benefit and to design that benefit in a way that would also stimulate a viable private market
What the Washington, D.C.-area universities have said about their plans to reopen in fall 2020
"It may be difficult for universities these days to have in person classes for the fall semester during the pandemic, But some local schools are trying to make it ah, priority at the University of Maryland. We're going to be testing every person President Darryl Pines says. It's going to be mandatory for students and staff members as the school tries to have as much in person education as possible. From my perspective, we always students. A world class education at Georgetown University, dean of the McDonough School of Business, Paul Amita says all freshmen will be welcomed to campus. It's an important experience for them when they leave their homes. So he says. Some may have to quarantine for 14 days when they arrive if they're traveling from hot spots. Nick in L A w T o P
Broadband for All?
"I have two guests joining us I I want to say welcome to agree to disagree to G. G soon TJ year distinguished fellow at Georgetown. Law and you are recognized as one of the nation's foremost advocates for open and affordable Internet, welcome to intelligence squared. Thanks, John and your opponent in the conversation. It's different from saying opponent in a debate, but the opposing view in the conversation is brought to us by Christopher Christopher welcome to intelligence squared, and to agree to disagree your professor at Penn Law, and among the leading authorities on law and technology today. Great to have you with us. Thank you for having me. So I WANNA start by putting before the two of you, a series of very short questions and all I want to hear from you is whether you agree with the statement says or whether you disagree and I'm going to start. Statement number one for millions of Americans pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet to substitute for or enhance variety of normally face to face activities such as getting an education being seen by a doctor going to the bank shopping for basic needs again. The pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet for those things. Do you agree or disagree with that Statement Agree Chris Totally agree? Second Statement, the thirty three million Americans who lack broadband service in their own homes are disadvantaged by that fact, G G I don't agree with the number, but I agree with the statement. Correct me on the member. So thirty, three million, a third of American households don't have Internet access. The FCC's numbers, which are actually less than thirty three million. They're closer to eighteen million grossly under understate the number of Americans. Who Don't have access to the broadband internet? A thirty three million is too little as well. I testified in front of Congress that it's closer to one hundred, forty, one million okay Microsoft estimates that is closer to one, hundred, sixty, two million all right so somewhere between thirty three million in one hundred sixty two million Americans lack of broadband service in their own homes. Are disadvantaged by that fact. Do you agree or disagree great? Chris without disputing the numbers at this point are those without broadband in their homes disadvantaged by that fact, absolutely the third question, the user experience on faster broadband connection is preferable to the experience on a slower connection. Kiji, agree a hundred percent. Chris wanted to know more about what you mean faster and slower the generally. Yes, it's always better to be faster. There is diminishing returns. We're GONNA talk about gigabit speeds at some point I presume, and basically there's a point where you just don't need any more speed, but within a certain range absolutely okay. The fourth question broadband service should be seen as a right underlaw gee-gee. I think it's essential a writer very very legalistic term I think every American should have Internet access whether it's a right like the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's hard for me to agree with that statement depending on what you mean by right. If, you're asking me if everybody should have it whether it's an essential service, I agree one hundred percent. Asking me it's. Is it a right under the bill of rights? I would disagree. Chris I think Z. said a perfectly. It's an important service, but I don't think for him. Getting rights, discourse helps okay. It's very interesting. Point is that you've agreed fundamentally basically on all four questions so far are fifth question and our final question, and that's the one that we're going to use our motivating question for the beginning of the conversation at least Congress should guarantee broadband access for all gee-gee agree. Chris I think that the question is how. I tend to generally agree, but for example states have been very active in the space I want to credit the things that they're doing this room through a lot of different actors, but does Congress have very constructive role in Congress doing more? Yes, but guarantee is too strong a word. Would you say I think so? You know there's a lot of the central services that we have and the idea of a guarantee means that if I were choose to move on top of a mountain. Very far away from everything else. I'm entitled to ask the Government to provide service, no matter what the cost at certain levels and With a number of alternatives, there's examples where we have to make trade offs, and by saying the government is obligated to provide every citizen to guarantee every citizen access to internet speeds comparable what you get cities, no matter where they choose to live. Is a choice we can make in society. It's just a very expensive one
Georgetown's Prof JoAnn Volk Discusses Health Care Sharing Ministries
"Joanne Lemme, ask to begin. What's generally the history? or how did these healthcare sharing ministries come about? Well, they've been around for decades, and they're generally for religious communities that opt not to have insurance instead to agree to share. One another's medical expenses think of like the Amish community, rallying around to rebuild a a barn after the. Fire similarly you know folks look to their community to to offset their healthcare costs rather than enroll in insurance in the ACA when they were crafting the individual mandate that said that everyone has insurance, unless you can show a good reason not to say about affordable or some other reasons, there was an exemption created for people who are in healthcare. Sharing mysteries so long as they were enrolled in one that made us specific definition that was in. DEPORTABLE CHARACTE! Okay thank you so these. Go back quite a long while they originally a religious affiliated. My understanding is less so today, and they really became more popular over the last few decades. In fact I'll just note here in my research. It's uncertain, but it appears that as many as a million Americans now hold. one of these plans. Let's go to specifics. Relative to what you're getting or how these health care sharing ministries work, so can you generally describe? These are how they work. Well so at their core. They are not insurance, so there is no guarantee that you will get payment for any of your health care costs if he were a member, but the way they are structured, members pay monthly. Share, it's called a share monthly fee to the healthcare sharing master to be a member and then you can submit as a member. He can submit your health care bills, and so long as they meet the requirements of healthcare sharing ministry, they may be shared with other members who will either directly send a check to you or send the check to the healthcare sharing ministry to redistribute to the members who need help offsetting healthcare costs. But the trick is that It. The though it's not insurance there a lot of features that look a lot like insurance to consumers that are shopping for coverage and frankly act a lot like insurance so. Where there's a deductible in your assurance plan. They call it unshareable amount where you have to pay out of pocket. You know two thousand dollars per medical event before you can submit something for sharing the monthly contribution is to find typically by age number of people in the household and enrolled in some cases. can be adjusted based on whether or not. You have a healthy lifestyle. Were had risk factors unhealthy lifestyle There's a very specific definition of what services can be covered. You know type Beatty's, but not type one prescription drugs only up to six months no pre existing conditions will be covered without a weight dollar limits on the benefits that. That can be covered, so there are a lot of aunts and many even refer to provider network, and with ramifications for going out of network. You have to get prior authorization. You'll pay more if you go out of network so there are a lot of features that look and act an awful lot like an insurance particularly for consumers when they're looking at these documents but importantly, and I would argue it's actually not so close to short-term plans, because at least they're in their many tricks do not pay, but there is some contract between the insurer and the enrolled that there's supposed to be payment for covered services. There is never a promise to pay healthcare sharing ministry. Even if your doctor says it's medically necessary, and what you've gotten for, care is within the definition of what should be covered. Okay, so they're? They're not insurance, and they don't guarantee payment yet. You pay various fees, something that resembles a premium deductibles, etc.. So, what's the attraction why? WHY WOULD PEOPLE! participate in one of these. Well this work. It's a bit murky and I think even more so with the repeal of the individual mandate penalty I think originally there were people and there still are people who sign up for these because they don't believe in insurance, they would rather not pay their money to an insurance company, or would rather not part of a plan that covers certain things that they find morally objectionable, so I should point out that they typically exclude coverage for mental health and substance use disorder. As I said pre existing conditions, prescription drugs for more than six months so not. It's not useful to people with chronic conditions But They, so they will not cover those conditions but for consumer it looks a lot like insurance, and so there's some will by the policy. Because they don't believe it should be covering. Maternity out of me outside of marriage or something that might consider the result of unhealthy living like excessive drinking or drug use but others I think now or buying it because they see it as a more affordable alternative to aca plan, and in some cases, there are brokers in websites that are presenting them as or affordable alternative to ACA. Plan so there. They think they're getting something akin to insurance, but for a whole lot less money.

Mo'Kelly responds to former Trump adviser Roger Stone calling him a racial slur during interview
"And you have questions. In fact, I have questions during the program. During one of the breaks. I was told Eric if he could get the What Roger Stone allegedly said and want to get to that in just a moment. What would you do an interview like that? I have certain responsibilities. And if you watch any good reporter and I'm not saying I'm a good reporter, but there's a technique you watch report like during a White House press briefing. And the president may say something personal may make a personal insult. Notice. They don't respond to that Their job is to get their questions asked and get an answer. My job as I see it. Was to keep Roger Stone on the phone. And regardless of what may have transpired, regardless of what person that may have felt about what he was saying, my job was to keep him talking. For your benefit as the audience and my benefit to have that conversation. And it's not always comfortable. And since I'm processing, quite sure different people heard different things or wanted to know different things. I'm going to turn this over now to to all his sharp producer wallet. Take it from here. No, uh, first of all, fantastic job That was quite possibly one of the best interviews that has ever been on the Mo Kelly show. Hands down. Great questions. Fantastic. I okay? Maybe I heard wrong. I need to go back and hear the audio. I swear this man Off the cuff said. I cannot believe I am arguing with this Negro on the air. Okay. If you did not hear that portion of the conversation, I was pressing Roger Stone as faras his commutation. That his relationship in proximity to the president probably had something to do with the president showing him favor and he he was just talking about how unfair the justice system was. Well, that's the likely follow up question. How can you talk about an unfair justice system when you are benefiting from that same justice system? If you're not the friend of the president, then You probably don't get the commutation. I think he took exception to it. And Eric, are you Are you queued up on your end? Yeah, I got it. Okay. This is where everything went. Left, everyone pay attention. Let's all listen to this together. Hit it. I do believe that certain people are treated differently in the federal justice system. I do absolutely believe that. But I also believe that your friendship and relationship in history with Donald Trump weighed more heavily than him. Just wanted to make sure that justice was done by AH person in the justice system that you were treated so unfairly. There are thousands of people treated unfairly daily. How your number just happened to come up in the lottery. I'm guessing it was more than just look. Roger, right? Rose, You're arguing with me. I'm sorry. What is that? Roger. Roger. I'm sorry. What did you say? I'm sorry. You you argue with him. I thought we were having just a very spirited conversation. What happened? Would you not like to continue the conversation, sir? I hear that the line is not dead. You're back. I don't know what that is. Well, Yeah, I was, uh, I was talking and you said something about Negro, so I wasn't exactly sure. Our did not Okay. You know your mind your mind? I okay. Well, we'll let the listeners decide. Let me go to the next question. Then why? Whatever the next question No. Do you literally have ice in your veins? Well, let me put it on for you. How were you able to keep that going and keep your composure? How do you do that? I'm sitting over here losing my mind. I didn't know it first. I need to figure out this is what's going through my mind. I had to figure out whether he was going to each yet. And then when I had chest really think about it during the break, this is something I noticed if he honestly couldn't hear me, what is it? Someone says, if they can't hear you and in the middle of a conversation. Hello there. He didn't say that. It's just silence. And he obviously wasn't talking any exhale. I heard what I heard. And the audio is what the audio is, But let me tell you swallow what I felt about it. And this kind of I'm loath to talk about race on the Mo Kelly show. I'm loath because by and large people don't respect the conversation. They don't respect it at all. They want to hear what they already believe. They don't want information. They want confirmation. They want affirmation. And a lot of times. I always say I can show you better than I can tell you. I've had seven pressed to my count seven presidential candidates on this program either while they were running or sometime later in their professional history. Seven. We've had any number of senators, you have any number of Congress people. I've been in radio 20 years I have been a BBC political commentator for 10 years have been published in The New York Times. L A Times Chicago Sun Times and been on. Good Morning America. CNN MSNBC H L In MSNBC, NBC it just about any alphabet, Fox 11. I say all that to say not as a boast. But the only thing that I felt was true, honest and sincere. That Roger Stone said was in that moment that he thought I was not listening and all of my professional Crit accolades. All my professional bony feet days went out the window because as far as he was concerned, he was talking and arguing with a Negro. It didn't matter that I went to Georgetown University. It didn't matter that I did my interns on internship on Capitol Hill. It didn't matter that I've interviewed the best of the best in All walks of life. It did not matter because in that moment he was flustered. He obviously was angry and He? It was almost like, If you want to know how a person actually is. Well, get them when they think that the cameras aren't rolling. The microphone is off. And no one else was around. That moment was the closest thing we'll ever get to that with Roger Stone. He didn't think that I could hear him. And he seemingly turned to another person in that room and says something unintelligible in said something like I can't believe I'm argument this Negro. Can we isolate that, Eric? Do you have that isolated anyways? We can listen to just that. What was she like arguing with me? One more time. What was she like arguing with me? Well, I don't know what the first few words but this Negro is clear as day. I don't care what precedes it. It is what it is. But But 12 here's my main point. That's why I'm low to discuss race on this program, not because Because I think it's a silly conversation, and people don't actually want to have a sincere conversation. Because not a day goes by which someone says to me on some love with my email and you see the twat posted all the time. You're not on Ko Phi, but four or you didn't get into Georgetown but four Or you don't deserve to or you're only there because of every single day. It's a perpetual audition to prove myself having nothing to do with my actual professional accomplishments. And I can say that, but in that moment it is demonstrated for everyone to see and everyone to hear. So going back to how did I keep my cool? That's Tuesday in America for me, that's every single day, but my job was to keep him talking because people wanted to know. Was he going to get a trump tattoo? See, We don't get that question if I reject or I chase him down this warm hole of Negro He denied it. In that moment, he lied about it. What is there to discuss? I know him on the radio. I know that there's going to be a podcast. I don't need to chase after that. Because I knew
Big East Cancels Non-Conference Games For Fall Sports
"Will be different in Georgetown and non existent Howard this year, the Big East, announcing that fall sports will only play conference games in 2020 and the MEAC has cancelled all fall sports Baseball. The Nationals Post one of the better starting rotations in the majors, and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Last night when Stephen Strasbourg pitched the interest Squad game, Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Anibal Sanchez got together in a socially distant wayto watch. Manager Davey Martinez. Those guys, they're all pretty close, you know, starting pitchers, so every time Strasbourg Max throws our orbit, essentially, those guys are going to sit up there and watch each other pitch. They like it. They washed. They learn and they teach. You know if they see something one guy's doing that they can help they talk. They talk amongst each other. And try to make themselves better.
Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?

"Find tons of stuff I wrote the column was. I can't remember who the coach was but he was frustrated that it his players were being recruited off of his mid major campus. And the point I made is that most been made your coaches and mid Major. Did your players low major coaches low. Major players are at where they're at for the exact same reason because it's the best opportunity. They've got nobody dreams about coaching. And I don't say this disparage anything. Nobody Dreams about coaching in the sunbelt. You Dream About Coaching in the ACC. You're the big twelve or whatever but you end up as Sunbelt bill coach. Because that's the best job you can get at that time. But here's the great thing. If you prove you're awesome in the sun belt sometimes tmz a better opportunity will present itself. And then you know what the coaches do. Every time they take the better opportunity. They jump as soon as I can jump. So if it's okay for coaches do then why why are we think it's a bad thing when players do it if you can be a sunbelt coat or southern conference coach or whatever and if you prove to be so awesome you get better opportunities and then you take advantage of him and everybody celebrates that then why would it be the worst thing in the world for a low major player or mid major when they proved their unbelievable at that level and they get better opportunities. Why would it be the worst thing in the world for them to take advantage of of that opportunity again? Y- you can't at least in my mind have it both ways. Yeah rest your case. I got confirmation. That had not everything you just said the last point I would make on. This is that coach will tell you you need and I think I was going down this path and then I took hard left. You needed tarrant to to transferring there. Are It transferring is already not easy you know. What do you think of these people as just basketball players like we just watch them on TV? And then we we think that's all they're also people with his friends and girlfriends and boyfriends and and they they they build a life on a college campus. Leaving that is not always always easy. You have to actually move so everything that goes into that your classes may not transfer slowly some credits. No doubt yeah. There are already things that make transferring not ideal for student athletes. So we don't need to add to that that I don't think and the fact that most Division One division athletes in most sports don't have to deal with this suggests to me that that men's basketball basketball players women's basketball players football players baseball players hockey players. They shouldn't have to deal with it either. Yep So we'll see Joey Hauser at Michigan state season from now which was the expectation and the same with his brother other Sam. Who will be if you forgot at Virginia? All right. Let's get into our picks faith five. It's a is that what we're calling the faith five five the fave. I don't love it okay. You got a better name. Someone suggested to us the final five as opposed to the final four. But I don't know about that. He'll be a working working. Okay now we'll stick with for now we'll stick with faith five but if we can come up with something better taking all recommendations okay so we got five games. You're keeping track.

I don't think they're going to beat Duke but if they do you'll see in a hurry like how how much the buzz around that team really ups up a few innings. If they're able to pull it off you exactly right like I'm old now but when I was young Georgetown John was one of the biggest brands in the sport college basketball. Georgetown was a massive brand. Honestly it's the same thing with. UNLV hasn't been what lovie used is to be in a while. I do believe he will do a great job there and get back on track but still you. UNLV still carries a certain like you and LV. Those letters will still show up at a rap track every once in a while right because of what they were once upon a time in. Georgetown is is that that and so just having the. I don't know what Georgetown is team. We'll see but having the brand of Georgetown with Pat Ewing inside the garden against Duke. Which is talk with Kentucky? I'm not even GONNA try to start this argument right there with Kentucky as arguably the biggest brand in the sport north. I'll just throw North Carolina there as well so nobody gets mad. North Carolina Duke Kentucky. Yeah big massive current brands in the sport of college basketball. Georgetown do pet. You Coach K.. That that's going to be trivia time. Throw it at me okay. So I mentioned pat led Georgetown to three championship games in a four year career. One and two in those games and the won the title in Nineteen eighty-four was projected to win again in eighty five. They're the number one overall seed heading heading into the tournament and they of course lose to Villanova in the championship game. What at Villanova shoot from the field in that championship game against Georgetown Eighty percent? Seventy eight point six pretty good all right. Let's enough close enough okay. So like last night I started reading as I'm preparing for this. I just ah you click on one. Patrick Ewing next thing you know. You're reading his entire life story right and it just is obviously Patrick. Ewing's life story in his lifestyle. I know ever I know everything about Patrick Ewing right out. You WanNa know one of the things I learned. I do actually one in high school. He took a handful of visits to two colleges. Obviously ultimately enrolling George San also visited Villanova. Didn't never knew that did not know that. Okay yeah he took a visit Villanova then ends up the last game of his college career playing against Villanova and though I knew this this part it's still just wild every time you read it. They shot seventy eight point six percent from the field. They were twenty two of twenty eight from the field in the national championship game. That is bananas. Yeah and they used what they thought was the only proper way to to play Georgetown in order to pull off the now seat wise. It is a big upset but I will also say and we can move on here in a second. But that's not the biggest upset in college. Basketball Villanova was in the same conferences conferences. Georgetown played them tight two times prior. It was kind of like kind of like when the giants almost beat the Patriots in week. Seventeen the year that the Patriots didn't lose a game in the regular season and then the giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I think that's the closest championship parallel. We see in American sports. So it's it's an all time victory and all time high-performance. There's no doubt about it but there have been much bigger upsets in the history of college basketball than Villanova overjoyed down. The coaching staff knew each other. They were familiar with each other and awesome awesome win and certainly an all-time championship game performance. But I've always thought that the the hyperbole around Villanova's win and you know that being like this amazing easing upset. I just I've always thought it's been a little overstated. That's all it is and I can actually give you the numbers on it Villanova entered the in the championship. Game with a twenty four and tin record. They were an eight seed in the tournament. Georgetown was the number one overall seed they enter the championship. Game with a thirty five and two record. So if you just based on that at once against eight one teams thirty five and two Villanova's twenty four and ten once team has to and against the other team. It sounds like this amazing upset. But you're exactly right. They played twice in the regular season season. Both were competitive games and at tip off. Georgetown was only an eight point. Favorite over Villanova even crazy and you know why. I think that this has been and more built up as an upset and over the years parish. Do you know what that tournament was. It was the first time they went to sixty four teams so it was the first time that you had seven seventh and eighth next two teams and so the very first year you do it. You have Villanova just squeaking into the lowest possible. See they could have been from a from a power conference Stanford. There's never been a see that low before make it. So it's a bigger field they crack through and And so I think that's also what added up to kind of the law around the upset Trivia Anyway I'm not even close to ready but go ahead. Can you name the other two final four teams at the nineteen eighty four saint. Johns Saint. John's thing John's is one and hold on John's Georgetown on Nove. Georgetown beat Saint Johns. Okay cake to guesses Is is one of them. HOUSTON nope okay. Okay I really want to get this. Damn Perish Duke Duke is incorrect because eighty six. And that's the first one. Come on give me a conference. It would have been at the time the Metro Conference. Don't tell me IT'S MEMPHIS MEMPHIS. State Tate University. All right there. We go there. Because that's what like Patrick. Ewing was a consensus first American. Three or four years of college Keith. Keith Lee was a consensus first team. All American two years and a second team all American third year and so. That was the way I was supposed to spend my Monday nine of the tournament. It was going to be keithly my idol when I was a young kid against Patrick Ewing in the championship game of the tournament and Villanova screwed screwed up everything they can go down that way. That's a nice little a nice little sidetracked there. Yeah so anyway. Patrick Ewing against Mike suggest the inside. The that's what I'm trying to figure out. What are we even talking about after doing? It's like she's just inside the garden on Friday night in Orlando will be there so make sure to to read what he writes. CBS SPORTS DOT COM.

"Hey there it's scary. It's Friday November twenty second two thousand nineteen welcome welcome back to the CBS sports. I on college basketball pockets where we sometimes discuss Campbell fighting and leaky Black Matt. norlander being suppose we'll start with Thursday nights. Most interesting interesting outcome happened in the first game of the two K.. Empire classic inside. New York's Madison Square Garden Final Score. Georgetown to number twenty two Texas Sixty six Patrick Edrich Ewing's Heuer's dental five at the half but then outscored. Ut Forty five twenty four in the final twenty minutes so Texas associate coach defensive genius. Leigh Yawkey chocolates. Probably GonNa Watch like forty nine straight hours. And I'm trying to be funny. Luca's great undeniably. My point is just wild to see his defense. Give it forty five points at twenty minutes. Norlander what did you make Patrick. Ewing's big win which sets up a Friday night's showdown between Patrick Ewing and Mike at MSG where I know. Oh you'll be in. Attendance will be Let's get to what happened Thursday night because I thought certainly possible for Georgetown to get a win here but I thought Texas was the better team if they were playing a neutral court five game series. I still would take Texas to win. Three get a five against the Hoyas but for them to just come back and dominate and find the answers against Texas defense was pretty pretty shocking for me I mean I. I didn't think that Georgetown had a sixteen point. Win In them over Texas squad that's obviously ranked and now is in danger it probably will fall out of the rankings. COME COME MONDAYS UPDATE regardless of if Texas can beat cow by one or one hundred here on Friday night But what what. He's strong win for for Georgetown to to get this kind of victory. You're talking a little bit on the previous podcast. In terms of what we think the the Hoyas royal doing were there going overall at foreign one. They're looking offensively. Pretty Solid Mac. McClellan is making a nice progression here in his sophomore off more season and seven remains. Just he's he. He is a real difference maker down low So for me me personally. I thought Thursday was more about Georgetown astounding in the style that it did as opposed to Texas losing how it did that. Then obviously it's troublesome Texas just a complete no-show in the second half hyphen. That's not common to that extent with shock smart Texas teams but they haven't man good good on a good on the hoyas air and yet sets up I would think that the garden will be close to capacity given its Patrick Ewing. Georgetown still has a strong following in the city city and then Duke Obviously Always Trust Msci. I am compelled to bring up something that I mentioned on an earlier. podcast this week. Penn State owns a fifteen point win over that same Georgetown team and is now four. No on the season twenty fifth at Kim Palm Show respect for chambers in the job. He's doing with the nittany lions I'm getting there. They got a tricky home. One against Yale on Saturday. I'm assuming that's not in our faith. Five picks but If they can if they can get that one and then they gotta play Ole Miss Against In Barclay Center next week I will good start Maryland. Eastern Shore Wachner Bucknell among the Among victories here but Penn State is winning winning big Pat Chambers is off to a very good start and yes they are ranked highly and Ken Palm so they just might be on the way to prove me wrong. Texas losing remove them from the top twenty five hundred one. We're recording this on Friday morning. I still haven't updated the top twenty five and one yet running a little behind this Friday but I got a spot open now. I believe I'm going to give it to Colorado because Colorado is ranked in the AP poll. It's not been in the top twenty five and one at all so I believe Colorado is GonNa fill that spot. But I'm thinking about Penn State. A pen state has a has a solid case here in Colorado is the only bright spot mostly right now at the moment with the PAC. Twelve parish do you realize how bad the the PAC twelve is on Thursday night. Washington State lost at home against Omaha. Ucla lost to Hofstra at home. You had cal getting roasted by Duke and there was one more. Yeah Utah lost. They got killed by Coastal Carolina even Arizona like had issues getting pass out to Kota state so if you want to go Colorado. I don't disagree with it. The PAC twelve could use that kind of shine. Oregon's been fine and all but The league's been off to a good start. Thursday was just a dark. It was dark knight a reminiscent night of a two thousand eighteen for the PAC. Twelve between Colorado Penn state. I personally think Colorado's a better teams. That's my official. Vote for you. Cou I will probably go with Colorado Colorado then but let let let the record. Show that if it was the top twenty five Anti Penn State would probably be number twenty seven. Let's focus back on Friday night George Duke inside the garden. I for whatever reason I've reached a point in my life where I don't really care about going going to actual sporting events I just. I have more fun watching them on television. Like last week I went to agree a grizzlies game with my wife and our youngest son and it was terrific. Because it was a Mike Conley returned to Fedex for John Moran was awesome but like I would have had just as much more fun. Maybe just just watching it on my couch then actually being in the building. I sell that to say this. I think it's GonNa be awesome inside the garden. Georgetown Duke Patrick Ewing on the sidelines. Coaching Against Coach K.. Lot storylines here after last night. Mike Francesa's now two hundred seventeen and thirty four all time while coaching a team. That's ranked number one in the people. And if he wins tonight it will be two hundred and eighteen. Th Vic think about that for a second. It'll be two hundred eighteenth victory. Sorry as the coach of the number one team in the country he will pass John Wooden and that will be the most all time. So you've got that story line which is tremendous and then you've got coach K.. Against Patrick Ewing inside Madison Square Garden. These are two of the icons of college basketball. Obviously for different reasons. Mike is Arguably Ghibli if not undeniably the greatest college basketball coach of all time in. Patrick Ewing is one of the greatest college basketball players of all time. You know one of my first memories of college basketball is Patrick. Patrick Ewing being an absolute monster. That's when I got into the sport. He was at Georgetown. The eighty two eighty three eighty four eighty five season spent four four years in college. That would never happen if he were playing. Now as opposed to then a consensus consensus first team. All American three years. One of the very first freshman to be an undeniable force in the sport. He took Georgetown down to three national title Games. In a four year career. They wouldn't one and two in those games. They won they lost to. Obviously the most famous loss is being the loss to Villanova in the one thousand nine hundred national championship game but to have those two. I really think this is accurate. Icons of the sport of college basketball. Aw Coaching against each other in the building in Midtown Manhattan where Pat Spent fifteen years as a star for the New York Knicks putting together a hall of fame career. That's that's GonNa be an awesome thing to be a part I. I'm on some level jealous that I won't be there with you because I would assume that the energy and the building will be just absolutely dramatic. I think so. I think it should be pretty fantastic. You know you throw in the fact that it is a Friday night so Some people that otherwise might not want to scoot down to midtown Manhattan for whatever reason if it was a a a traditional weekday. Now they're going to make the time to get there and yes. I would think that the garden will be buzzing. I HOPE WE GET A. I do hope we get a good game. I was curious if She had ever coached against Georgetown. When ewing was a player he did not do ca sixty three all-time against Georgetown? The first meeting between these two schools happened a Long after ewing left it was it was nineteen eighty-nine but I'll I'll be just purely on the core perspective Jamesy Kinjo who some respects had had his way with that Texas back court on Thursday. How will trade Jones match up with him? How will that backward accorded Duke matchup with your sounds back overall? And then you're seven going it's Vernon Carey. Those are two different kinds of big men. So I'm just I'm actually fascinated by the matchups here. Duke is the better team but I don't put a pass Georgetown to get a win there. I think they should have a shot. I I wouldn't guess that the line is to you too close. But I'm certainly hoping for a game single digits into ideally the garden will be Will be pretty pop. And that's obviously the second game Texas by nature of losing now he's GonNa try and get right against accounting that was obviously just as expected I wonder Marc Foxx roasted by Duke. In the second game on Thursday night you mentioned Vernon Carey. We are wrong about a a lot of stuff but one of the things that we might have gotten right is in the preseason. We were talking about Duke and specifically Vernon Carey. Who is not really showing coming up on mock drafts? Because he's a he's a traditional big as opposed to the type of big. NBA Franchises value. Right now and I don't want to say that those guys are unplayable in the NBA NBA. But they're less playable than they've ever been but one of the points I made. Is that what we might find out is. He's not a great NBA prospect for reasons. Since I just stated but it won't stop him from being a great college player and so far he is a great college player he got thirty one and twelve in the eighty seven. Fifty two win over cow Thursday night. He's now averaging eighteen points and nine rebounds in twenty three point two minutes per game. He's been he's been great he has. It's been great. How about this? He's three for three from three point range so he might not he might average. Maybe you might get total twenty five this season but but when when he steps out so far he's been He's been he's been true so far. Yeah he's sixty percent from two point range he has been he's been solid. All round. Jones has been their most important player. I don't think that's really up for debate. Ah But Carey has been a steady. And he'll get his he mentioned You know I spoke to him after the champions classic that going up against you as Buki the biggest physical challenges ever had in his career That's.

"Harry scary Wednesday, November fourteen two thousand eighteen welcome back to the math. I got back Norrland here with me. And there hasn't been any victim of sports since the last time we recorded on Sunday night every ranked team that played Monday one every team that played on Tuesday. One number to Kansas Pete from my number seven Carolina beat Stanford number twelve Kansas state beat Denver number twenty five. Buffalo beat southern Illinois on the roads and buffalo has to true road. Winds both of which are better than North Carolina's best road win. So Norrland is probably got him as number one seed all of that happened on Monday night, Tuesday night, number five, Tennessee beat Georgia Tech number twenty two LSU beat Memphis. But the biggest story might have been Georgetown winning at Illinois. The Hoyas are now three and they have a white dude reverse donkey norlander I'll start right? There is MAC Nicole mania about to take over this country over the country. No. But it's about to take over this podcast, MAC McClellan whose dunking rep. Tation YouTube born dunking reputation was second in this class. Only two ones I on Williamson did his name well on Tuesday night. And that was a good, but kind of chaotic game Georgetown gets a frankly Goodwin for that program. Go on the road beetle annoying illinois's not gonna be necessarily tournament team the season. I actually don't think he'll noise even going to be an IT team this season. I think they're two years away from being I think they'll pop two years from now Radnor would might have a program that develops into Sweet Sixteen caliber, but regardless of that good for Georgetown to do that and McCloy he's he's a he's fun to watch. Because let's listen, he's he's a bulky white guy who can pop out of his shoes and and seeks to have dunk. That's awesome. As possible and games perish. And when was the last time we talked about Georgetown on this podcast. And it didn't involve them firing. John Thompson or hiring, Patrick Ewing Paris. It's has to be at least three or four years. Right. Yeah. I mean, they've been mostly relevant for. A while. And it's wild to think about because. Tweeted this last night my earliest sports memories heavily involved, Georgetown because. You know, people people are going to be shocked to hear this. But I grew up in Memphis. You didn't know that? Did you hold on? Hold on you grew up in Memphis rope in Memphis, still live in the area. And obviously it was Memphis state at the time, but they were awesome in the early eighties at a center and Keith Lee who was a two-time first team consensus all American head knee issues. So never really flourished in the NBA didn't have much of an MBA career. But just an awesome college basketball player from west Memphis, Arkansas shout to the west Memphis three. So it was it was leeann pet Ewing. Those were the two dominant bigs like I think they were in school at the exact same time. They were both. I all Americans in one thousand nine hundred eighty three one thousand nine hundred five Keith wasn't in eighty four. But Pat patois so so pet was a believe all three of those years Keith only was in two of those years. But either way my like I can vividly. Remember like they're supposed to be on a collision course for the national championship game was going to be Memphis against Georgetown Keithly against Patrick Ewing. And that was in nineteen eighty five. And then, of course, Villanova upsets Memphis state in the national semifinals Villanova sits, Georgetown. But Georgetown, is was like the biggest thing in college basketball, and one of the big things in sports in my in my childhood, and the idea that they've been mostly a relevant college basketball in recent years is kind of. Not great. I think it's great for the sport when Georgetown's good. And I don't know if Georgetown's good, but Georgetown's three, oh, and they got pet Ewing as a coach, and they gotta white reverse Dunkin. So that's good. Yeah. Oh, it's definitely good quick thought on Keithly..

"We all be downloading copies of the sun on our iphones right now. Well, you know, the race, a really good question. Remember Trump has issued some pretty emphatic declarations in the past that if not come to pass, for example, you know, he issued a string of tweets about transgender soldiers in the military and where where exactly you know that that policy was about as slow-walked as you can possibly imagine. My understanding is essentially the positions being taken now is that his order triggered a process. It didn't end the process. And one of the things that you see frequently in this administration is there is a gap between Trump's words, even seemingly Trump's emphatic orders and the actual actions that take place. And so I'm gonna wait on the declassification assessment until I see the final in result here the ultimate declassification assessment until I see the final result here, but to the sources and methods point. So I think at some point. If he pushes this to the point that truly jeopardizes national security that truly jeopardizes the lives of, say a source or truly jeopardy jeopardizes a method that is vital to American national security, particularly vital to our surveillance of Russia, our primary geopolitical rival. That's when it tips into serious people in DOJ saying Mr President, I respect for, I respectfully resigned rather than carry out your order. We have not seen that kind of thing happen yet, but I think that that would be a tipping point. We haven't seen that safeguard click in quite yet. I know for a fact it's been considered on certain occasions, but we haven't seen that safeguard get clicked in, and I think that safeguards should click in if he is truly endangering sources and methods. But one of the things that makes me a little skeptical about some of the classification battle here is your member the infamous Nunez memo several months ago, which feels like in the in the hangover Bamberg that yes. Headache? Yes, yes. I mean, that's probably just a few months ago, feels like it was twenty five years ago. It just a few months ago, but still a hangover. Yes. There was a lot of anguish over the fact that the new nez memo was going to be declassified, and then it was declassified and you read it and you thought, what in there was worthy of classification. This is just a very poorly written memo containing information that we basically already knew, but the the anguish over the declassification people telling us this was going to cause national security problems. And then it comes out in in Atlanta except in sort of, again, conspiracy theory, Twitter with a thud. I, I am skeptical even in this context of the Muller investigation, and all of this of claims about national security sources and methods in part because of all of the mistaken anguish over the Nunez memo. There should have been anguish over it because as a cruddy memo, but not because it was endangering American national security. Every time I hear Devin. Nunes his name. I remember the first time I heard it and I thought I'd never want to hear this guy's name again. I I, he's somebody who's Devin newness to me embodies the kind of person who sh- just isn't is an embarrassment to the Republic. He's terrible in his job. He's a disgrace and you just want him to vanish. And yet he keeps rally keeps re, but he keeps mushrooming back up and he he is to me a symbol of all that is all that have screwed up in America and I want him. I always want him to vanish.

"It's more precisely said, sort of penalty of felony. The only people who said anything under penalty of felony. So far about this or cavenaugh and two of the other people who are alleged. Really at the party. And the accuser to this moment has still not said anything under oath or under any penalty, a felony in in a court of law, that accusation would be tossed out unless the person was willing to state their case under penalty of perjury. And so the staff should investigate the heck out of this thing between now and a hearing, and then they should call relevant witnesses. And if the majority doesn't want to call relevant witnesses, then I say shame on them, but that is what we see. We require of people all over this country in very, very difficult circumstances. When a claim is made is to come in, put their hand in the air swear to tell the whole truth and nothing, but the truth and then make their case subject to cross examination. That's the way this works. Emily do think if we end up as seems highly possible. The moment with simply the two of them testifying on Monday, and it may be as David French says, there will be. A background investigation so that Lisa senders will come armed with with material questions about, although it doesn't sound like there will be other people under oath at the moment. And we have one person who makes a claim and she is credible. And we have another person who denies that claim and he is credible. What are we left with at that point? If both because we haven't heard the testimony and I agree with David French that it's entirely possible. And I mean in my view, likely the Blasi Ford is going to be a compelling and sympathetic teller of her story and that that could have a real impact. But we have to wait and see how it plays out. You know, for me, some of the arguments people have made about why Blasi four doesn't seem credible to them are not arguments that hold up to me and I so for example, because one of the arguments, I think David French, you've made this argument that you know, because she waited so long to come forward that suggests that. I mean, certainly true, makes it harder to prove, but to me, doesn't it all make it clear that she's not telling the truth. Caitlin Flanagan did an amazing job on the daily this week for the New York Times. And in the Atlantic talking about a sexual assault, she experienced that she didn't tell anyone about. I had experience of sexual assault and high school in the eighties. I didn't tell anyone for a long time. We just didn't do that. I felt we too much shame and responsibility to talk about. It just seemed like something that was my fault, but I know it happened to me and I have the same response hearing, President Trump and others suggest that maybe she's mixed up about Kavanagh's identity because I would never be mixed up about the person who did that to me. So I find those efforts to kind of undermine her story really hard to listen to. Do you guys think that the. Peripheral evidence about Kavanagh's teenage years, his his own joking about what happens at Georgetown prep stays at Georgetown prep, the hints in the Mark judge memoir about cavenaugh. Do you think that's going to come up? Is it relevant? Do senders need to consider that. You know, look, I think whether or not he drank to excess on occasion in high school is. You know to to, if let let me put it this way. If he said, look, there's no way I could have done this because I was stone cold, sober all of the time and remember with clarity where I was in where you know what I did, and then there was evidence, no. In fact, you drank too much on occasion. I mean, at some point it it gets very, very difficult to say, evidence that he drank too much on occasion equals evidence that he committed a serious act of sexual assault..

"Might trust their findings seems totally sensible to me. I mean, we already have a situation in which people are lining up on one side of believe him or believe her with a lot of partisan bias, informing their choices about that matter. So if there are some hope here of finding out other facts that could help people see this in a more neutral way, that would seem important to me. One other related question I have about this is the decision to only call two witnesses when there's a third person Mark judge who according to Blasi Ford was in the room, and then also someone who supports Kavanagh's version of events. I mean, it just seems to me the decision not to call Mark judge has everything to do with Mark, judges character, and the fact that he wrote a whole memoir or maybe even two memoirs about his alcoholism and blackout drinking. And if they call Mark judge, they're going to say to him, hey, there was a character in your book who you called Bartecko Vana, who you talked about puking and passing out. From alcohol? Is that Brad Kavanagh, fatal Republicans don't want that guy, you know, testifying in front of the American people. But again, if you really trying to aspertain the truth here and try to figure out who's credible and whose stories hold up. Of course, you would call that third person and anyone else who could find who was supposed to be at that party. David. Why do you think David, French? Why do you think Mark judge particular shouldn't be called on Monday if you do think that? I don't think that I think that if you can identify people who were allegedly at that party, they should be called and they should. They should testify. So, you know, I, I look at this. I look at this and in a way that is very similar to the process of civil litigation des- because there's there's no prospect of prosecuting a crime here. That's that's that ship has sailed a long time ago in the process of civil civil litigation. A person comes forward with an accusation and then bears a burden of proof, and this is the burden of proof. I articulated in an article when all this just I broke on Sunday was the lowest burden of proof possible in court, and that is preponderance the evidence or more likely than not because I don't want to have a supreme court Justice sitting on the supreme court. If it is more likely than not that they committed this, this heinous of the sexual assault, even when they were a teenager, I, if it's more likely than not that they did this, I don't want him on the supreme court in the same way with ROY Moore, I was utterly opposed his election in Alabama because I thought it was more like. Than not that he had abused underage young teenagers when he was a prosecutor in Alabama. The same reason I don't want. I did not want Trump in wealth for many reasons. I did not want Trump in the White House. One is I thought it's more likely than not. He was a sexual abuser, the same for Bill Clinton, and so that that's the standard which I think is a fair standard as that we don't want someone in that office when it's more likely than not that they did this well, then how do you go about establishing that? And I, I tend to believe that the accuser, the person who comes forward with the accusation, bears the burden of proving at least that it's more likely than not that it occurred in one thing that troubles me as as of right now, the only people who have said anything under it's not precisely penalty of perjury..

And so I think that they're going to continue to offer up right up until the deadline. And at the same time, you would hope that these committee staffs are busy doing their jobs investigating this all the while. So David, maybe I'm a little confused about your position because a couple of weeks ago you were saying that you know if there were only four for Boers there where the other two, let's hear from them. In fact, investigators should interview everyone else at the party. So are you saying that the FBI should not investigate, but somebody should or that the hearing should just go ahead on Monday without an investigation new. I'm saying an investigation should be conducted by the relevant committee. And so the problem is, if you're going to say there should be an investigation in only the FBI should investigate when this is not in the FBI's standard operating procedure. I think that's a problem, but it is absolutely within the purview of these committees to do these kinds of investigations. And from what I understand, at least the majority staff has been doing. These investigation has talked to cavenaugh under penalty of felony has received correspondence from at least two of the other people who are allegedly at the parties. Don't remember a party like this. So there is something going on behind the scenes that is not highly visible to us when the FBI typically doesn't investigate alleged violations of state laws. But in this context, the FBI had does background checks of every supreme court nominee and did investigate Anita. Hill's allegations about Clarence Thomas. In fact, according to the White House at the time said they were unfounded. I mean, I'm a little confused if Cavanaugh is innocent, I would think he would welcome investigation to clear his name so that part of it puzzles me. But I also think from Blasi Ford's point of view, the Republican majority on the Senate Judiciary committee is not a neutral source of investigation. Right? I mean, some of those senators have already said that they believe cavenaugh. And so I think what she is asking for here is to have some neutral fact finders, but you also have the minority staff in power. Investigate as well. So those are both partisan entities, the majority and minority parts of the committee. And what Blasi Ford is asking for is a neutral investigator and not seems to me to be different from just saying, oh, a particular entity, the FBI I'm Emily, I'm, I mean, this is a slightly different point, but I'm slate. I sort of feel like the, he's not being. This is the Senate has the Senate is the body carrying out this hearing the Senate is holding a hearing to decide whether they want to confirm him for the supreme court. This isn't a criminal investigation. This is not an attempt to open a criminal investigation against him. This is it's, it's a process designed to decide on confirmation. And I feel like if the Senate rules as set by the majority of senators are like, you know, here's how we're gonna do it even if they're tinged with partisan bias. Like it's why not just go ahead with this. She can make her point as she testifies. Here's why this is an inadequate investigation. Here's what should be looked into, but I don't know that necessarily that she necessarily is entitled to this kind of investigation. Well, I don't know what the word entitled and non sentence means, and I also feel like I'm repeating myself. But if you really want to try to find out the facts here as David French road week or two ago, you would investigate and the idea of having a neutral investigative body that more people..

"There may still be all day passes available for that show and they can. I also say, come the day before Friday, and you can see me interview. Eric Holder are former attorney general. I've never colder going to be fun. That's exciting. Make a weekend of it. Yeah. Go see, Emily go to the Texas Tribune festival, which is fantastic. As we tape on Thursday morning, the on nomination is in a fog, the sexual assault allegation from Christine Blasi. Ford has prompted a delay in the judiciary committee vote. As we're talking, the committee has proposed that Ford and cavenaugh come in, asked both of them to come in on Monday to testify before the committee. Just just them individually. No other witnesses, no other invest. Gatien Ford. Meanwhile has asked apparently through her lawyer that no hearing beheld or no testimony be taken until after an FBI investigations conducted into her allegations. As I understand that the committee has given Ford a deadline of Friday at ten AM to decide whether she's going to testify on Monday. There's just so much going on in in this story and it's so complicated. But Emily, let me start with a simple question which is if there is no investigation should Dr Blasi for testify on Monday. Well, so first of all, I think the request run investigation is a completely reasonable one and make sense if you're trying to actually ascertain the truth of these accusations. That's what investigators do they look into surrounding circumstances and look for corroborating evidence. This accusation is about something that took place thirty six years ago and it's possible that people aren't going to remember whether this party happened when it was. Cetera, but at least one would want to allow investigators a chance to try to sort that out. Especially because Cavanaugh has said that he wasn't at any at this party. And that seems like something that it's possible to at least find out more about. So I understand why Dr Blasi is asking for the investigation. I think that if the Republicans are going to refuse to do it, which seems to clearly be their position and none of the, you know, Republican senators who asked for the hearing, meaning flake and corker, and Collins and Murkowski, none of them are demanding investigation. And so I think the Republicans have decided that the politics don't force them to do one. And in that case, I think that if Dr Blasi wants to try to have an effect on this confirmation than she has to testify on Monday, you know whether she decided to do that or not. That's her personal decision. So I'm not going to tell her to do it, but I think that's sort of how the politics have landed at the moment. Fringed you think this Meriden FBI investigation before. Or any Senator shirt committee testimony, or do you think that the testimony should go ahead with the two of them now, I don't think it merits an FBI investigation. Let's let's be clear about what we're talking about here. We're talking about investigating would have been a violation of state criminal law more than thirty years ago. Something that the f. b. i. doesn't investigate. Now, the thing though that when we're talking about investigation, people keep ask acting as if the f. b. is the only entity that can investigate the Senate committee itself can investigate the Senate committee staff. Most both majority staff and minority staff can investigate a person who. And I've, I've been a lawyer on the plane of side, and I've been a lawyer on the defendant side in a variety of kinds of cases in my career, including some really tough and really tough sexual harassment type cases and a plaintiff can investigate a plaintiff's attorney can investigate. And so there are a lot there, many different avenues of investigation here. And so I. One thing I think is is pretty clear. And from what I'm hearing is it's not. I do not believe that Republican senators are sitting there going. I can't wait for her to testify in front of us and so that we can destroy her on national television. I think if I think these Republican senators, many of them view her testifying on national television is an extremely high risk endeavor for the nominee and for the GOP. I think that there is a view that if she comes and she testifies public and she's very compelling that this could absolutely sink the nomination..

Going to be very valuable for, Texas really is we cannot overstate. That I don't I don't know why we arrived in two thousand eighteen and not had parenting class there. You go jump in. Here at. Five one two eight three six zero five ninety we talked about school safety there and that's part. Of, that Discussion and when the school year begins in August the sixteenth Georgetown ISD all school visitors will have to go through a new single point entry system before getting access beyond the main entrance of the school they've done some massive renovations in the Georgetown's school district starts August sixteenth doors would be opened to the main. Front entry, visitors at Georgetown ISD schools will have to go, through a new secure single point entry system before getting. Access beyond the main entrance of the building, the person will take the driver's, license they, reception this will scan that through the raptor system it computerized system that then does a background check for. Them through a central clearing. House before they construction began at two of the district's high schools this. Summer visitors would hand. The receptionist. Their ID to get checked and then walked past the desk but now the framing. And. The hallway there will soon have glass windows, the, entry, way, will, also, have doors. That will be locked at all, times until the receptionist pitches The button that allows the visitor there you go it's kind of like a maze of doors you gotta. Get to before you can actually get. Access into where the kids are yeah and it makes. Sense and it's yeah obviously it's going to make it more difficult for any intruders any you know anybody that means any harm to get in but. It's still not the ultimate answer you're, still going to need more security outside of their on the, grants you're still going to need more, deterrence out there you're going to. Need guys holding guns you're going to need police you're going to need national guard whatever it is To this gotta stop before they get to the campaign you do because a lot of school shooters have permission to be on campus that's right and this doesn't mean. That shooters can't just stand out in front and I'm not sure this new single point entry. System includes a metal detectors the story doesn't indicate that. The doors to. The reception area will remain locked as well and. So. Truly, visitors can't get past this area unless. They've gone through. The appropriate background screening the district has already included these entrances in all of their new construction the new entrances at two high. Schools, are expected to be. Complete by, the, time, students return in August with the heightened awareness that we've seen, over the past several months to years incidents at different, facilities that certainly raises the interest level. Here Georgetown ISD is paying about four hundred thirty thousand dollars for the. New high school single point entrances that's money leftover. From the twenty fifteen school bond there. You go that's the story. There from k. i. CBS Austin, yeah well it's It's, a good start absolutely there are many aspects of that to make a lot of sense but it's not the ultimate answer but it's. It's interesting. How the Georgetown independent school district was able to move quickly they moved very quickly on this within started finding the money making construction changes I. Hope they're model for a lot of other schools all right five one two eight three. Six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to five now..
