Is Tiger Woods about to make a putter change?
"Talked again, we talked a good amount about him. He looks great. There's a lot of positive thoughts about his chances this week he warned in Oh five. He won here I think that he never shot higher than sixty eight and then in two thousand, nine, the President's covers here at harding park he went five Oh and so he has good history here he is still the. Reigning Masters Champion. Ugly, Fifteenth. In the world, some are trying to point. So some negatives like he's only played four competitive rounds in six months. I'm not focused on that I. Don't think he gives a shit about that. He showed up to Zozo championship last year in Japan and it felt like we had seen him play golf or any decent golf in months, and he's won that tournament in Atlanta. He showed up to the President's cup. We were there. We were physically there watch the entire thing. Play the president's coverage has several the best players in the world, their best player, the President's Cup in a landslide. So Tiger Woods smile and yet focused I like his chances this. I think he's come a long way since Monday and a lot of people's minds in that. All is incredibly exciting. On. Monday because. If we remember in the last podcast, you said, he really had no chance. That's true. Well, said, he's the favourite. Video and a you know with the weather and everything else that I would write this low on his list Jimi play whatever rig said because it wasn't that wasn't what we said and it certainly wasn't when said he was literally what I just you in you in the New York Post or two peas in a pod newer post tweeted out. Tiger Woods needs a miracle this week at the championship it was like what the fuck is going on and you know rig says similar points new. York Post. I said tiger. Woods is the favorite I said that on Monday show Tuesday show Jake will find that but I just ranked course and the the fact it's fifty five fucking degrees and narrow fairways. Low on the list of tiger woods majors coming up in the next four five years. It's not that hard. Of course, is not the art of course, I gave Frankie thumping already park last night. On the game. So it was like I I I could go out there right now in wooded. So the overall. Well I you know. I didn't realize we were GONNA play a marathon session of golf club twenty, nineteen I looked at the time we're finished up three and a half hours. My back was sore. I couldn't feel my feet like it's not built for endurance I'm just not built for endurance but I smoked you. At harding. Park. So I'm not too worried about art course conditions. By the way, we're not just a heads up just while we're talking about it. We said we were GONNA stream tonight, Thursday you're listening to it but we didn't realize that the coverage goes so late. So we will not be streaming tonight, but we will doing Tuesday Thursday next week. So be on the lookout for that. Last Tiger related thing new putter. About the new potter, he's got the Scott Newport. I think it's like the two point. Oh it's the one with the different weights and couple of different reports about it. Some saying he's definitely putting it in play other saying it's GonNa be a game time decision he. According to Steve Stricker, Tiger really likes it. It's a little longer in length with have been over as much. We can practice as putting a lot more which makes a lot of sense So that would be a good thing for the back and then another aspect of it is that apparently it's got adjustable wait we have heard for decades now tiger. Could just couldn't get the speed right or you know other Greens were little slower than I thought and I guess instead of having to make that adjustment in your fields or in your judgment calls in, you're putting in how hard it he can just tweet the weights and the Scottie, and that's what he likes because you know if the Green Bay speed them up from. Wednesday Thursday early days beat him up from Saturday Sunday whenever he can just kind of tweak the weights part of me going into this feels like well, tiger woods has won thirteen or fourteen major championships with that part of that is the elder wand. That is the thing that he flipped and spun in circles right in front of our faces that ad US bedazzled. Is the horn. Rocks. And any other usage of any other putter is not only blasted, but it's it's him searching a tim trying to find something which means he's not comfortable, and then the other part of me says, it's Tiger fucking. Would you give them a wooden stick? You give them happy. Gilmore's little hockey stick putter. He'll go out there and win because he's the greatest time you give them any driver persimmon would as a matter it'll just go out and win because he's better than everyone else and it doesn't matter So I'm a little torn on the whole thing. But it's Tigers putter. So everybody's talking about basically I'm just praying for success I mean, I do I think it's the right decision and adding and subtracting weights based on green speed that seems Like, if I'm just going to pick up a new tool every time when it's GonNa be different weight I don't think that I'm going to have much accessible but again, I'm not tiger so I'm not so keen on that. But Hell. If he's got confidence conferences key and if he thinks that's going to help them make more. Than you know play with a hockey stick or whatever. You just said you know so. Tricky one, but you were rooting for dagger. But I don't like I. Don't I'm not as doesn't work for me and I'm not a fan. I am not a supportive of the change I want that other potter to just pile up major victories and lurch. You said what I was GonNa say where changing the way day to day on a putter seems like a nightmare scenario I get that stegar woods. He's the greatest Golfer of all time but I need everything in my bag and again I'm not comparing myself to tiger woods but I need everything to be. One way just needed to be the same all the time. So messing with putter way just seems like a crazy idea but again, if he likes it if it makes him comfortable, that's GonNa give them better chances week. Thank God.

"As covert 19 cases continue to surge in most states across the country. President Trump is heading to South Dakota today for 1/4 of July celebration at Mount Rushmore, where there will be no social distancing. For more. We're joined. Live on the KCBS Ring Central News Line by Margaret Brennan, CBS News, senior foreign affairs correspondent and moderator of Face The Nation, Margaret This is turning out to be a very controversial visit. This is considered sacred land by the Indians. Fireworks have not been performed or fired off at Mount Rushmore in more than a decade because of fears of wildfire.

Well, we know that the state is largely supportive of the president of South Dakota is and hey wanted to make the statement in a dramatic backdrop to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday I'll be on July 3rd. South Dakota has a relatively low level of covert infections, but they do have hot spots and any kind of mass gathering like this adds to the complication of what the president is choosing to dio because masks are optional there.

How does one gain admission? I don't know about the tickets to be very honest with you.

They don't just, you know, stay put in the town where this is being helped. So they're abroad. Health concerns about this. The president doesn't want to make the statement on the holiday that America is continuing to Forrest.

UK abandons contact-tracing app for Apple and Google model
"Got Surprising message on twitter on Thursday. Dez said he had just listened to Thursday's Moco West Ken, the one that had me talking about the tiny number of smallest countries that had gone with the Apple Google Api for contact, tracing APPs as well as the problems. Australia had had going a different way. Dez had just listened to that show when he saw this headline from the BBC. UK virus tracing APP switches to Apple Google model. Again maybe not. I? Mean that is what the headline says. But for lines in the article says the government now intends to launch a nap in the autumn. However, it says the product may not involve contact tracing at that point instead, the software may be limited to enabling users to report their symptoms and order a-tast. Baroness Daito harding who heads up the wider test and tracing program will only give the green light to actually deploying the Apple Google technology if she judges it to be fit for purpose, which he does not believe is the case at present. It is possible. This may never happen. The report says tests run with iphone could not tell the difference between contacts who are three feet away versus contacts who are nine feet away. It also says that the at the U K had been testing was good at that distance thing, but battered iphone since apple won't let them under the hood. and. They're still kind of cross about that. Quoting the beep at a downing, street briefing Health Secretary Matt Hancock suggested the original plan might have worked. Had it not been for Apple's restrictions on Third Party APPS use a bluetooth. Apple? Software prevents iphones being used effectively for contact tracing unless you're using apple's own technology. He said our APP won't work. Because Apple won't change that system and their APP can't measure distance well enough to a standard that we are satisfied with. What matters is what works? What works will save lives? So the UK will use the Apple Google API or it won't. And thanks again. For the head top on that report.
Living the Questions: When no question seems big enough
"Well hello again. We started recording, and then we. But. Yeah? WE'RE LIVING IN A. Kind of rearranged world in every way right now, including how you and I are speaking to each other. I so you know this living the questions is about not. Being scripted and about honoring Questions? especially the questions we can't answer that it would be actually an affront to the questions themselves, and what they what the reality that they convey. To. Positive answer or an opinion? And And that and so we decided to Near. You are my my beloved and esteemed colleague. In! You are an African American man and you said at the feet of Vincent harding. And have learned from our great elders and In Warren Ferguson. You've been in many many places for which in which what's happening now in American cities. Is In in other American. Cities to is more familiar. And of course there's nothing new. That's part of the problem. There's nothing new there's there's a rebel. There's a revealing maybe an maybe maybe. a New Light Being Sean. That it's something coming to the surface again. That's been there so when we've been having. We've been having it at Oriel. Conversations on morning and we've been interacting with people online and. In our audience. Listening Community and Really kind of Coming to the conclusion that mostly we have questions. And deciding to be transparent about that I was just reading through. On social media. Siri put out a call to ask people how we can accompany them and. You know and it's it's questions. And and including the question of why like how how can this be happening? And then something really interesting to me was that there's a woman who's identifies as. A black woman, the wife of Black Man, the mother of three black children, and she said all she wanted right now is silent. It her favourite show of us is the Gordon Hampton show. So I guess. A question. kind of an anguish that rolls around for me is. It's not even it doesn't even, isn't it? It's not even enough question. It's like. The inadequacy of everything. That's been done and all of my best motivations and. Desires person. I guess maybe I thought maybe I'm thinking that what I'd like for you to do. It and the you know I think people feel helpless and they feel outraged. One of the things res- momentum said in the conversation that I. Had with him that that. Were just putting on the air is that? is how destructive it is when he gives one of these workshops and a white woman. Starts crying. Food that is so useless. So Okay I've just talked a lot, but I think I. Think the question. I guess I would like for you to help me. Think through. What are what are the real questions not just to be asking but to be living. WILL I. I appreciate a a lot of what you just Reflected on and and I feel that there were. A couple of questions there that. That had resonance with me. One is this notion of? You know I I was. This notion of what. What more can be said in a moment like this? I mean when when? You know when I I'm. Aubrey was killed in then George Floyd I mean I. You know there's. there. Are these calls for people to safe something and there's this. This impulse to say something and yet at the same time. I kept feeling like there is. I mean what new is there to be said like you know like I, it's it's all been said before end. And by people more eloquent than I end. and. People with. More capacity than I have to speak in an and I just. I think that's a part of the grief is the idea that? In I think about the. The idea that it needs to be said that black lives matter you know like that it's it's sort of an annoying thing to to have to say because it's sort of. It's such A. It's not a you know. For me if I'm going to reflect on. On on black life in the relationship to the United States. In the history of our country and the building, our country in the functioning of our country. We we much more than matter we. We are essential. We are. We are critical. We we don't just matter. We don't just just just make a difference in so there's a way in which like this violence this consistent. Dehumanisation is. Is So self destructive? For the country as a whole and the fact that we have lived with such self-destruction is insane.

It wasn't really clear that he had a path to the presidency. There were a couple of other people who were expected to win the Republican nomination and harding had no sort of national following not within the party not within the country so there was no reason for him to suspect that he would end up being the presidential nominee of the party. It was only when the party failed. Come to a consensus on nine different ballots at the convention that they finally kind of look around and they say well who's left. Who can we put up? That people can agree on and harding because he didn't have much of a political record because he wasn't the representative of a major faction within the party.

They knew about this affair and they knew how damaging it could be particularly because it was so long term because of the German connections and because this was the wife of one of harding's berry good friends so they decide to give Carey Phillips twenty thousand dollars in cash and they send her and her husband on an all.

He was connected with the political establishment. The Republican political establishment in Ohio. He wasn't entirely sure whether he wanted to go into public life but they were petitions that were flowing and his name was being put up for it and once it was clear that he was going to be the candidate for the Republican Party. He got pretty into the idea. And so he is elected to the Senate and heads to Washington DC in nineteen fifteen with his wife Florence. He continues his affair and his correspondence. With Kerry it's a really important relationship not only because of this amazing cache of love letters that we have that Warren harding road to carry Phillips but also because she was a big supporter of Germany and their relationship is taking place during World War One. And there's lots of evidence that she was trying to persuade harding once he'd entered the Senate to support Germany in foreign relations with the United States. She's actually surveilled by the US government because they're concerned about her influence on harding and though there's no evidence that she was say a spy for Germany this really did not only cast a pall on their relationship but it actually drove a wedge between them they were fighting a lot about foreign policy and their relationship really cools as the United States enters world war one in February of nineteen seventeen. He writes to her. Frankly I have all long recognized your intense partisanship and sympathy for and devotion to Germany. And I have respected because you are you and most of the cutting things said I have been able to pass by but I can and will do my duty.

Florence was five years older than Warren was and she had actually been married before and she had a child. Florence's father was not a fan of her interest in Warren primarily. Because there were rumors at the time that Warren harding had some black ancestry in him. Still Florence continued to be interested and she pursued him. Relentlessly much more aggressively than he courted her until they married in eighteen. Ninety One when Warren Harding is twenty. Five years old and Florence is thirty so she was a bit of a standout figure in Marion. Ohio because in the late nineteenth century to be divorced into be a single mother. That was something that was pretty unusual so I think that it says something about Warren Harding. That wasn't something that drove him off. I think he saw in Florence someone who was bright who was motivated. Who could challenge him and who could be a real partner for him and I think in those early years. They had a good relationship not just because it was a partnership because it still had those sort of early days of infatuation and passion. That's going to go away fairly quickly. He's going to turn those passions over to his extramarital relationships. Enter CARY PHILLIPS THE WOMAN WHO Stack of love. Letters would be found years later.

"We're going to do something a little different with presidential this week so you know how I normally ask what it would be like to go on a blind date with the president. Well this week the entire episode is kind of an answer to the question so Nicole hemmer a scholar at the University of Virginia's Miller Center is going to help me narrate this crazy wild story of warren harding's life and relationships and presidency.

We've got women. Wearing bustled dresses. Men are wearing those jackets that cut away at the bottom. You can see there watch chains. Marian was a growing industrial city in sort of north central Ohio. And at the head of the city's daily newspaper. The Marian Star was a young man in his twenty's named Warren harding. A couple of years when harding was only about nineteen years old. He had bought the paper for three hundred dollars to his best. Friends and harding had something that would actually prove to be pretty important to his presidency. He was very charming. He was very handsome and he was well connected. His position with the paper gained him prestige in connections across the city especially since he wasn't very interested in running critical or scandalous stories. Well he was absolutely a people pleaser and he was also someone who didn't like confrontation. It's key to the success of his newspaper. That idea of not wanting to be too political. Because you're in an era in which journalism is going a major change moving away from party papers and moving to a more commercial or nonpartisan model and harding believed that because the Marion Star was the only daily paper in Marion. Ohio than it was important that it be the paper of record that it not be too closely associated with any one party so that really made it stand out as publisher and editor hurting wrote out in office creed for the newsroom. That included points like remember. There are two sides to every question. Get both and be truthful yet. Also boost. DoN'T KNOCK. There's good in everybody bring out the good in everybody and never needlessly hurt the feelings of anybody. This is the voice of my colleague. Michael Rouen Michael covered the big unsealing of harding's letters two years ago so I asked if he wanted to play the role of harding for us which he said Yes to without maybe fully remembering what he was getting in for even though hurting kept his newspaper from waiting too much into the political game he himself got more and more involved in the local Republican Party. Which is basically the party that most of Marion's business owners belong to at the time. Twenty four hurting takes a brief hiatus from running the paper when he had what he called a nervous breakdown and he spent a few weeks at a health retreat. Run by Dr Kellogg. The man who invented cornflakes soon enough though hurting is back about town. He's helping the Republican Party. He's running the newspaper. And he's catching the eye of many local lady. So harding is a very striking man. He has these angular dramatic features. These dark eyebrows A sort of prominent nose and he's very tall so that striking nece combined with a strong record of charisma and charm and that sort of flirtatious Attitude that he had that all made him a very captivating compelling person.

"So willing telling him I was going to ask you to introduce yourself but then I thought that maybe I could introduce you. Okay so how I would describe. You is like an og podcast maker here at the Washington Post because you were the creator of a podcast during the last presidential election called appropriately enough presidential and you basically went back and did the history of us. President did yeah forty four episodes in forty four weeks for years ago. It was a lot a lot of it was a lot but this year for years later you are revisiting. Some of the episodes of presidential so partly. I'm going back just for myself. And Re listening to these episodes I made for years ago and rethinking what they mean what they tell us in an election year but then we're also going to be releasing some new episodes and some news special stuff over the course of the coming year that has to do with presidential history so in the spirit of all of that because today is presidents day. We thought it might be a good idea to go back and have post reports listeners. Just listen to an episode of presidential and we chose in unconventional choice. Better President that before I listen to this episode. I knew absolutely nothing about and that President is Warren g harding. You might think we do the George Washington episode or Abraham Lincoln episode which are Great. And you should listen to those. And they're probably more of what you would expect but Warren harding was running for election. Exactly one hundred years ago. Nineteen twenty and there were a lot of interesting wild crazy things that happened during his presidency. A lot of scandals corruption this I sort of fusion of celebrity and the presidency. And that's what I found so fascinating about this episode about the story of Warren Harding. Because even though he's like a pretty forgotten president he actually had this like larger than life personality and was kind of a celebrity and had this like very interesting love life visitor very polite ways to put everything he's a fascinating person to look back at and notice the differences but also some of the similarities to a presidency reliving through one hundred years later in nineteen fifty six in eighty three year. Old Woman named Carrie Phillips moved into a nursing home. She left it to her lawyer to sort through all the stuff she still had stacked up in her home in Marion. Ohio and he was digging through the closet when he found a box of letters hundreds and hundreds of letters nearly a thousand letters and they were all from former president. Warren harding. These were Raunchy. Steamy love notes that spanned years and years of a previously unknown affair between harding and Phillips. Well the lawyer had them away until nineteen sixty three at his own house and then he finally showed them to someone at the Ohio Historical Society word of the letters soon spread and after many legal proceedings. The letters ended up in the control of harding's family but they were given to the hurting family on one major condition that the family would eventually give those letters to the library of Congress instead of destroying them and so they did but when the family gave the letters to vibrate of Congress they made their own insistence and that was that the letter stay sealed for fifty years.

"Others. It it may have been possible for him to suggest pneumonia to the rest of the medical team early on and thus succeed in masking the effects of the poison but this is only conjecture and while arsenic poisoning fits. Many of harding's symptoms. There are other poisons that could have led to his death one of these leander a flowering shrub. Oleander is one of the most common garden plants in the world. It's grown widely Hedley from Portugal to southern Asia to California the site of harding's death when ingested in high amounts oleander is toxic to humans and in some mammals. Eating the leaves or sap of the plant can affect the intestines nervous system and the heart symptoms develop quickly uh-huh and can vary from nausea and vomiting to abdominal pain diarrhea and disrupted heart rate often. Oleander causes the heart to race ace and then drops precipitously accompanied by stronger than average contractions. This description may sound familiar. The effects of Oleander poison have been compared to those of digitalis. The same heart medicine harding was taking at the time of his death. Ingesting too much oleander can cause the heart's contractions to become too strong. This prevents it from relaxing and can lead to death. An overdose of digitalis can do the same though it fits with harding symptoms. There are some factors that make oleander poisoning a questionable unknowable culprit for one. It takes an extremely large dose to prove fatal to humans. According to a nineteen ninety-six paper on oleander toxicity. Written by Dr Shannon Langford and Dr Paul bore the human mortality as bad with oleander ingestion is generally very low. Even in cases of intentional consumption as in suicide attemps oleander has an extremely bitter taste. It's also quick acting acting meaning that it couldn't be responsible for harding's ongoing fatigue irregular pulse and other symptoms which all emerged before August. First second and alternative explanation could be that harding's heart already. overtaxed was pushed over the edge by a moderate dose of Oleander early ender or an overdose of digitalis. If hypothetically the president was already in poor health it could mean that only a small amount of poison was required to kill him. This could be why the president appeared to get better only to pass away while on the mend. Mrs Harding may have been hoping her husband would die of the heart trouble and was pushed to take drastic action when his condition seemed to improve. And she she had access to both Oleander and digitalis. But this theory it doesn't have much concrete evidence to back it up. There wasn't much reason for Sawyer to help Mrs Harding. Kill his boss. He never accepted payment for treating the president but it brought him great renown and for all the scandals surrounding harding's administration. Nothing ever emerged that suggested Sawyer had a personal animus toward the president cendant. Nothing other than the baseless allegations in Gaston means book and means integrity came under attack in an unexpected way After publication three years after its release in nineteen thirty three a journalist named May Dixon thacker came forward claiming claiming she had ghost written the book for me. She also said he stiffed her afterward and never gave her a share of the profits since he'd already collected the lion's share of the royalties means was all too willing to denounce his own book. After thacker came forward he'd begun another gift left. Anyway years later he would be arrested for Grand Larceny after falsely claiming to know the whereabouts of the Lindbergh. Baby based on. I'm these actions and means documented history as a con man. It seems doubtful that he had any real evidence of president. Harding's poisoning an alternate explanation favored by most modern doctors is that the president died. Not of a stroke but a heart attack a heart attacks are caused when blood flow to the heart is constricted. This prevents it from pumping oxygenated. Blood throughout the body leading to chest is pain fatigue and sometimes death. These symptoms are consistent with what harding endured in the days prior to his passing. But it also fits fits with his established medical history years before harding staff while he was a senator. Doctors diagnosed him with an enlarged heart. They told him at the time that the condition would only get worse if he continued his habit of drinking and smoking to excess and enlarged heart also known as Cardio. Mega Lee is a serious condition that can lead to cardiac failure beginning in one thousand nine hundred nineteen. It was diagnosed by taking a chest x Ray A. and measuring the diameter of the heart at its widest point. That measurement was then divided by the width of the ribcage. If the heart was found found to be more than half the size of the ribcage it was classified as enlarged. This condition can result from a variety of diseases and engine antic factors. In many cases. Doctors are unable to pin down a specific cause but obesity tobacco use high blood pressure and in diabetes can all make the condition. Worse harding was obese and likely suffered from high blood pressure as well. He smoked heavily even after he was diagnosed straining his heart even further but his drinking may have been the most significant contributor to his cardio Meghauli in the short term. Anyone who drinks alcohol experiences temporarily heightened heart rate over time alcohol abuse can lead to continuing continuing increases in both heart rate and blood pressure. The increased pressure weakens the heart muscles and can cause them to strain in harding's case his left and right ventricles. The large chambers of the heart were stretched thin this type of Cardio Mugabe is known as dilated cardiomyopathy cardiomyopathy. Once a hard is sufficiently enlarged. It often requires lifelong management. Meticulous care is essential because the more the heart grows the less overlap there is between the thin muscle fibers. This makes it more difficult for the fibers to pull on one another to contract the heart thus the muscles must work harder to pump blood through the body. All of this eventually lead to an irregular heartbeat chest based pain and heart failure outcomes which became increasingly more likely as harding continued to stress. His circulatory system throughout nineteen twenty-three considering the president's heart problems were so well documented. It seems odd that the doctors attributed his his death to a stroke but modern cardiac medicine was in its infancy in nineteen twenty-three and physicians at the time might not have been as familiar with with a common signs of a heart attack. The first practical electrocardiogram use to measure heart rate had only been invented at the turn of the century around around nineteen O one. Most often doctors in the early twentieth century relied on special watches and stethoscopes to measure. A patient's pulse diagnostic tools were far more limited than they are today even for someone like the president with the best technology and facilities available after after all the American Heart Association wasn't created until nineteen twenty four the year after harding's death at the time of its founding. The association was primarily concerned with learning about the heart rather than educating the public. The medical community knew little about cardiac disease and there weren't many existing treatments for heart conditions. Even things we now know are essential such as a healthy diet weren't connected to heart function until the nineteen fifties. The general lack of knowledge about cardiac health is often blamed for president harding's demise it provides a reason for his sudden passing and explains why Contemporary Doctors Likely Mis identified his cause of death even so no without an autopsy. It's impossible to know for sure whether the president died of a stroke a heart attack or something else and considering considering the corruption that plagued his administration during his lifetime. It's entirely possible. Unknown CD forces were at work behind the scenes. uh-huh after all things were never what they seemed with harding. At first glance he appeared to be successful in popular president but after his passing scandal after scandal emerged tainting his legacy. It could be that the biggest scandal the true cause of his death remains under wraps.

He was eventually ousted from the bureau after some of his many lies were exposed in court but even in two years in prison for perjury. Wooden slow means down in nineteen thirty. He published a scandalous book entitled the Strange Death of breath. President harding in it means claimed harding had architect or encouraged all of the scandals that plagued his administration even more more salaciously means heavily implied that Mrs Harding had collaborated with her physician. Charles Sawyer to poison the president. This was apparently apparently done. Both in retaliation for harding's affairs and to prevent his corruption from coming to light during his lifetime. The book was a bombshell. Despite means continued habit of playing fast and loose with the facts the expose did contain a few accusations Zeh Shins. That were likely true. After all he'd been a Washington insider for several years with his penchant for gossip he'd become privy to many rumors about harding's sex life which hadn't been public knowledge. The fact that it contains genuine insider information made the books seem credible too much of the American public but its most dramatic claims. Still require some examination. Could the first lady really we have a fascinating. The president coming up. We'll investigate the allegations. That Florence harding poisoned her husband and now back to the story in nineteen thirty seven years after the death of US President Warren g harding a former FBI. Official named Gaston means published a salacious expose means implied that the fifty seven year old president hadn't died of natural causes but had instead been murdered. He insinuated that harding's wife Florence had poisoned the president and in collaboration with the families homeopathic doctor Charles Sawyer means was circumspect careful to only hint at the poisoning rather rather than to accuse Florence outright but the nation caught his meaning all too clearly. The book was a bestseller and made many believe in a secret plot to kill president harding but whether there was any truth to means claims is up for debate for the most part. Mrs Harding's accusers have Provided few specifics about the alleged poisoning for instance means never specified which poison florence allegedly used on her husband. This isn't particularly surprising as there are thousands of chemicals that are toxic to the human body. Still some poisons are more likely culprits. Given the time period and the circumstances of harding's death is Sawyer really did conspire with Mrs Harding. Then arsenic snake may be the most likely candidate. Arsenic is a chemical element commonly found today in car. Batteries and bullets long-term exposure usually through contaminated. Drinking water can lead to numbness abdominal pain heart disease and cancer the poisonous effects arsenic have been known for thousands of years in nineteenth century France. It was even called inheritance powder because it was often employed cloyd by rich heirs to kill their parents for their inheritance. But arsenic also has been used for medicinal purposes powder's made from the element lament were historically purported to remove blemishes white in the skin and to treat syphilis prior to the discovery of penicillin in eighteen seventy eight and arsenic solution was even found to help treat leukemia. Patients by lowering their amount of white blood cells naturally the toxic effects Exa the solution where eventually found to outweigh its benefits but the use of Medicinal Arsenic continued into the twentieth century. and Dr Sawyer was known to prescribe arsenic to president harding. It's not known how often he gave it to the president or in what dosage but if it was administered over a long period it could've made harding's existing heart troubles much worse it could have even caused the issues to begin with if I had wanted to. He might have been able to slowly and discreetly make harding sicker over the course of years but that would have required wired long-term planning on Sawyers part in addition although harding ditch oh symptoms which fit with long-term arsenic poisoning. He didn't present with all the telltale signs. For example chronic arsenic exposure is also known to cause a thickening and darkening of one's skin. There's there's no evidence that harding experienced either of these since there's no record that Sawyer prescribed regular doses of arsenic to harding there may not be enough to conclude long-term exposure was the cause of the president's death however a high dose given all at once leading to acute arsenic personal poisoning may be more likely being odorless and tasteless. Arsenic would have made an ideal fast acting poison it. It was also extremely difficult to tact as Dr Michael F Hughes writes the most visible symptoms of acute arsenic poisoning nausea yeah bombing. Diarrhea and abdominal pain could be easily confused with other common diseases at the time such as cholera and pneumonia pneumonia was exactly. What harding was diagnosed with along with his heart problems? It's certainly conceivable that his physicians made a mistake. If one of the key doctors on the case Charles Sawyer had a hand in the poisoning then his opinion might have held sway over the others. It may have been possible for him to suggest Monja to the rest of the medical team early on and thus succeed in masking the effects of the poison but this is only conjecture and while arsenic poisoning fits many of harding's symptoms. There are other poisons that could have led to his death. F One of these leander a flowering shrub. Oleander is one of the most common garden plants in the world. It's grown widely from Portugal to southern Asia to California the site of harding's death when ingested in high amounts oleander is toxic to humans and some mammals. Eating the leaves or sap of the plant can affect the intestines nervous system and the heart symptoms develop quickly and can vary from nausea and vomiting to abdominal pain. Diarrhea and disrupted heart rate often. Oleander causes the heart to race and then drops precipitously accompanied by stronger than average contractions. This description may sound familiar. The effects of Oleander leander poison have been compared to those of digitalis. The same heart medicine harding was taking at the time of his death. Ingesting too much leander can cause the heart's contractions to become too strong. This prevents it from relaxing and can lead to death. An overdose of digitalis can do the same. Though it fits with harding's symptoms. There are some factors that make oleander poisoning a questionable. Oh culprit for one. It takes an extremely large dose to prove fatal to humans. According to a nineteen ninety-six paper on Oleander toxicity toxicity. Written by Dr Shannon Langford and Dr Paul bore the human mortality associated with Oleander. Ingestion is generally very very low. Even in cases of intentional consumption as in suicide attempts oleander has an extremely bitter taste. It's also quick acting Ding. meaning that it couldn't be responsible for harding's ongoing fatigue irregular pulse and other symptoms which all emerged before August. Second second an alternative explanation could be that harding's heart already. overtaxed was pushed over the edge by a moderate dose of Oleander Dander or an overdose of digitalis. If hypothetically the president was already in poor health it could mean that only a small amount. The poison was required to kill him. This could be why the president appeared to get better only pass away while on the mend. Mrs This is harding may have been hoping her husband would die of the heart trouble and was pushed to take drastic action when his condition seemed to improve and she had had access to both oleander and digitalis. But this theory doesn't have much concrete evidence to back it up. There wasn't much reason for Sawyer to help Mrs Harding. Kill his boss. He never accepted payment for treating the president but it brought him great renown noun and for all the scandals surrounding harding's administration. Nothing ever emerged that suggested Sawyer had a personal animus towards the president and nothing other than the baseless allegations in Gaston means book and means integrity came under attack in an unexpected way after after publication. Three years after its release in nineteen thirty-three. A journalist named May Dixon thacker came forward claiming thing she had ghost written the book for me she also said he stiffed her afterward and never gave her a share of the prophets. Since he'd already collected the lion's share of the royalties means was all too willing to denounce his own book. After thacker came forward he'd begun another gift anyway. Years later he would be arrested for Grand Larceny after falsely claiming to know the whereabouts of the Lindbergh. Baby based on these these actions and means documented history as a con man. It seems doubtful that he had any real evidence of president. Harding's poisoning an alternate explanation favored by most modern doctors.

"And now back to the story on the morning morning of July Twenty Ninth Nineteen Twenty-three President Warren g harding nearly collapsed. While traveling to a hotel in San Francisco the fifty seven year old was soon diagnosed with heart problems and the Monja and many feared for his life with good reason. Pneumonia is usually it caused by a virus or bacteria. That inflames the Air Sacs in the lungs. Common symptoms include chest pain and trouble breathing. Both of which harding was is likely already struggling with thanks to his existing heart issues. The president's lifestyle had likely worsened his symptoms. He loved cigars and smoking is known to be one of the biggest risk factors for pneumonia. Harding struggled to fight off infection. With shrunken lungs and overtaxed heart. His situation was definitely dire over the next few days. His advisors tried not to panic but it was impossible knocked fear for the state of the nation without its leader at the time. Harding was one of the most popular presidents in US history and some feared but he was irreplaceable. His Vice President Calvin Coolidge was viewed as an aloof conservative. Man of action in certainly didn't have the same charisma as harding. While officials debated amongst themselves. The president was kept in his hotel room on bedrest over the the next few days. Things look more promising and some advisers let go of their worst fears. Doctors effectively treated the president with digitalis Abo- technical extract historically prescribed for heart conditions. Did you talents works by lengthening. The resting period of the heartbeat while also strengthening strengthening the cardiac muscles contractions. This allows the heart to beat slower while still pumping an adequate supply of blood to the rest of the body. In in general a slower heart rate is desirable so long as it remains within a reasonable range according to the Harvard University Medical School. Each pulse of what's a mild stress on artery walls. More beats per minute means more stress a faster. Heartbeat also gives the the coronary arteries less time to fill with blood. This means that a slower holes puts less strain on the circulatory system. Overall high heart rates have been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. This was exactly what harding's doctors were worried about. But with the the help of the digital goddess the president's health and mood improved on August second four days after his arrival in San Francisco. He felt well well enough to sit up in bed. His wife Florence had been by his side throughout the illness consulting with Sawyer and the other doctors often even on the night of the second around seven thirty pm she even read him. A flattering Saturday. Evening Post article about his administration harding was in good spirits and when she paused her reading. He urged her to go on Florence. Look back at the page. Just as her husband's is is closed. When she began speaking again he let out a gasp in convulsed violently Florence watched in horror as he gripped chest and fell back onto the bed? His eyes open wide for a moment and then his pupils rolled back. He struggled to breathe for a few more seconds gins and then ru still terribly horribly still florence screamed for the doctors. They arrived in moments almonds and tried to revive harding but nothing could be done. The president was dead. The pronouncements sparked panic and uproar in the hotel room as Florence tried to process his death. Doctors and advisors argued vehemently about what to do next. The first White House official to arrive at the hotel was Herbert. Hoover Harding Secretary of Commerce upon on hearing the news. He ordered someone to find an informed. The Vice President Calvin coolidge immediately. It was no easy task. coolidge allege was in Vermont visiting his family and their home had no telephone it took the nearest messenger several hours to reach the house a man Dan of few words coolidge received the news quietly. He then dressed said a prayer and went out to meet the reporters who already gathered outside died at two forty seven on the morning of August third. Coolidge was sworn into office by lamplight. Then he cleared out the onlookers lookers and went back to sleep just like that. United States had a new leader. One Who many citizens had rarely heard speak at all all naturally. It didn't take long. For controversy to emerge a media. Firestorm began after Secretary Secretary. Hoover reported that the president had died of a stroke of cerebral apoplexy cerebral apoplexy which refers to symptoms of stroke stroke is often associated with cerebral hemorrhage which occurs when the brain tissue leads inside the skulled according to the American Heart Association creation. Cerebral hemorrhages are the second most common cause of stroke this potentially fatal condition results when the brain is deprived of sufficient blood flow leading to permanent damage depending on which areas of the brain are affected. The symptoms long-term effects of a stroke vary but for the most part. They don't present with the kind of symptoms. President harding experienced for one thing. Symptoms usually begin Only minutes before the actual stroke occurs thus if harding dial one it would have been more or less unconnected to the pneumonia and heart problems. uh-huh he experienced in the days before his passing for this reason. Many modern doctors don't believe harding suffered a stroke at all and physicians at the time had their doubts as well because the president appeared to be getting better just before his death some even claimed that more nefarious various factors were at play. The media reports filed in the days prior to harding's passing. Didn't help doctors had been overly optimistic. Nick and the White House had been eager to calm. The Nation's fears of losing the President as the New York Times reported just one day before harding died vice president Calvin. Coolidge expressed confidence today. That president harding would recover from his illness. He said he had received a telegram. I'm from his secretary. At Washington that the condition of the president had improved considerably. Many citizens had been led to believe that harding would get better her and had no idea that his condition was so precarious as a result the news of his passing sparked outrage in some who blamed incompetent incompetent doctors for his death sawyer. The harding's favourite homeopathic doctor came under particular scrutiny. But not everyone. On harding's medical team felt the pressure so the advocated for an autopsy to clear their names. The doctors felt the exam would prove proved that they've done everything they could to prevent the president staff but for some reason. Mrs Harding refused to allow it. Dr Wilbur The San Francisco enciso doctor who had examined him at the Palace Hotel was incensed years afterward he complained. We were accused of being abysmally. Ignorant stupid stupid and incompetent yet. There was nothing he could do to deflect the accusations the autopsy was never performed and militias rumors whereas about the president's death continued to swirl. It's possible that Mrs Harding's refusal was motivated by her religious beliefs or that rehashing. Her husband's death to an examination would have been too emotionally painful for her but many saw her obstinacy just an AC- as a sign that everything was not as it seemed some even believed Florence harding. The president's wife of over thirty years had been planning her husband's murder for months in truth. Her relationship with harding was fraud. He had several extramarital affairs which his wife knew about she was torn apart by his cheating but reportedly felt she'd sacrificed too much for harding's career to abandon him for harding's part he knew his wife knew about his affairs but made little effort to stop them. Florence is his only solution was to stick by Warren side as much as possible to prevent him from cheating on her again. Her constant presence only inflamed suspicions suspicions further as positioned Florence as a powerful force in the White House during her husband's administration. Some rumors implied she'd been pulling the strings behind all of harding's actions as president. No matter how much Florence denied the gossip it only increased thanks to the flood of political scandals suddenly coming to light many officials appointed by president harding or found to be corrupt or incompetent after his death. Though the president was largely unaware of the illegal activities that went on during his watch his negligence had allowed bad actors. To thrive in the administration the scandals spawned further conspiracy theories some of which claimed Mrs. Harding had killed her husband out of mercy to to spare his reputation before everything came to light her death in November the following year fueled these speculations even further aw. The conspiracy. Theories eventually reached a fever. Pitch thanks to one of the SLIMEST members of harding's administration gassed.

The triple axel was scheduled as the third move in her program in the first sixty seconds of her four minutes on the ice her fate would be sealed. First set of camel spins then triple Lutz. And then the ring collectively held their breath would she land the triple Axel reporter. Christine Brennan described the anticipation. One of the reasons season. Skating has always been so popular on. Television is because there is that unbelievable moment of decision. If you go up for a jump jump in come crashing down and you're on your hands and knees it's over. There is no second free throw. There's no third strike. There's no no fourth-down it's over. But it wasn't over for Tonya. She landed the Triple Axel and she absolutely nailed the the rest of her program which included six other triple jumps. The judges awarded her eight five point nine and even a perfect six point. Oh not only did she make history but she won the entire competition. She was the United States champion. A few months later at Skate America. She did it again but this time she landed two triple axels during the competition. Another gold medal. Another another record broken. She was headed to the nineteen ninety two Olympics. At first this accomplishment gave Tania incredible momentum in all areas of her life she separated from Jeff Galilee and and filed a restraining order against him in the paperwork. She stated she was afraid for her life. After she learned Jeff had purchased a shotgun she moved into an apartment with a friend and focused on her skating.

I'm going to be married once in my whole life and that's the way I'm going to look at it. I don't WANNA lose him. I really don't but friends and coaches which is worried about the influence jeff had on Tanya. She started partying and smoking cigarettes yet. Tanya struggled with asthma her entire our life her training slept Dodie. Teach me and said it just sort of reached a point where Tanya wasn't focused. Her training schedule was erratic so it was very difficult for her to get ready for the ninety two Olympics at the Games in February Tanya was out of shape and late to the party literally while most of her fellow skaters arrived in Albertville in late January Tanya showed up only three days before the competition started when she got there. She had problems with her equipment. One of her skate blades broke broke off. Tanya later said that the replacement blade was reattached at the wrong angle affecting her ability to land her jumps cleanly which meant. She didn't land her triple axel. Not only did she miss out on Olympic gold. She didn't even place in the medal. Range walking away fourth ironically. Nancy Kerrigan overtook Er for the bronze medal foreshadowing of the close rivalry that would develop between the two women over the next few years but for Tanya what should have been the triumphant pinnacle of the greatest skating season of her life instead became her greatest disappointment as Portland reporter. An Schadt said if you don't win the gold in skating you are an afterthought afterthought so forth feels like four hundred. Tanya returned home defeated but determined women to keep skating. She approached her former coach. Diane Rawlinson and asked her to resume their training. She wasn't ready to give up on her dreams. Dreams of Olympic gold yet while the Olympics are typically held every four years. The cycle of games shifted in the early nineties. After in Nineteen ninety-two the committee started staggering the winter and summer competitions. While the next Summer Games would be held in nineteen ninety six the next winter enter Games would be in nineteen ninety four which meant that. Tonya harding had a second shot at greatness.

"Sandra luko who skated with Tanya as a child described an incident. She witness personally in the net-bursting thirty for thirty documentary. The price of gold. She said during the skating competition petition. I was in the bathroom and Tanya and her mom came in their Tanya was having some issues and Mrs Harding just lost her temper and hit Tony repeatedly repeatedly with a hairbrush. It was very very very upsetting to me. Sandra only eleven at the time was determined to protect her friend she approached Diane Rawlinson told her she was calling child protective services. But Diane convinced her not to do it because of course it. Diane was already painfully aware of what was going on. Levinas abusive habits were apparently an open secret in the Portland Skating community but everyone also knew that if CPS got involved and remove Tanya from the harding home her skating career would be over. Aw figure skating is essentially a white collar sport or less generously a snob sport. It's incredibly expensive An time-consuming loan paid for equipment. Ice Time private lessons costumes. Competition entry fees travel to competitions and more. She drove Tonya to the rink. Every morning for practice then drove her to school then drove herself to work. oftentimes for a double shift in in a nineteen seventy-six interview Albert harding estimated that it costs two hundred twenty five dollars a month for five year. Old Tania's lessons in two thousand eighteen eighteen. That would be over a thousand dollars a month just for rink time. In the harding's were not wealthy. People they struggle to pay their bills and were evicted several times over back rent. When Tonya reached the competition level in her early teens the cost burden tripled to come up with with the money? Lavonia maxed out credit cards worked multiple jobs and collected donations Tanya recalled combing roadsides with her mom tom collect bottles and cans for refunds Lavonia dressed Tanya inner competition outfit for School Picture Day so they could use the photos in place place of professional headshots. Every single dollar went into skating sometimes even over food Portland reporter and Schadt. It said that a lot of the time Tanya was skating on an empty stomach Lavonia made a huge investment asman in her daughter and she expected equally large returns. She had the example. Right in front of her with America's Sweetheart Dorothy Hamill Hamel who won gold medals at both the nineteen seventy six world figure skating championships and Olympics soon after she was a spokesperson for Ford and clairol she became the featured star of the ICECAPADES. So in Livonia is wants wants. Tanya was an Olympian. She'd get so many endorsement deals the whole harding family would be taken care of for the rest of their lives. This was their ticket to a better life and so- Lavonia pushed and pushed and screamed and slapped and beat Tanya all in the name of protecting her investment but in pushing her daughter to be the fiercest physical competitor she left her emotionally stunted and vulnerable vulnerable. The abusive dynamics of the relationship taught Tanya two things first that it was acceptable to use violence to get what you want and second that love is conditional. She was only worthy of affection if she was the best so if Tanya wanted to be happy if she wanted to be loved she better be the best no matter the cost no matter the pain.
