"It. But most importantly, go to andrewandtodd .com for all your mortgage needs. Great guys, andrewandtodd .com. Joining us in a second is an unbelievably powerful guest, Hayward Robinson, Dr. Hayward Robinson, who for years was an abortionist and had an encounter with God and now speaks out against abortion. Pretty remarkable story. And I'm excited to speak with him about that. Since his salvation in 1986, Dr. Robinson has been a voice for the pro -life movement. And today, Dr. Robinson shares his testimony worldwide to expose the facts of the abortion industry and be a voice for the unborn. Dr. Robinson, welcome to the program. It's a blessing to be here, Charlie. Great to be on your show today. God bless you. Thank you. And God bless you for your work and your courage. Tell our audience your story. What did you do as an abortionist and how did God change your life? Well, what I've learned is that we need to use the word abortion less. Basically, I was a paid killer of preborn children. All the mother needed to do, and we need to stress to these women that they're already mothers when they have conceived, is they would pay someone like me to take them into a facility, it's not a clinic, it's a killing center, where I would then take that baby's life and then keep them away once I got the money. So I was saved by the Lord Jesus Christ a bit over 30 years ago and went from darkness to light, a Saul -Paul conversion, and the scales fell off my eyes, even though I knew the truth scientifically that a preborn child is indeed human, is a developing homosapien, and I would take that life. I would lower my eyes to know that every life is sacred and that he can indeed do the same thing for anyone else who's involved in the abortion cartel or the abortion industry. It's all about a business of killing children, and we've got to stop these, I call them anti -humanites from their full deeds. So how many abortions did you personally perform? I would probably say in the neighborhood of hundreds, I was not one of these abortionists that practiced for decades. I or practiced did abortions more on the side, moonlighting during residency. So it was the type of thing I did in the evenings and on weekends. So it wasn't something that I did over an extended period of time, but even if you do it for a short period of time, it's easy money. The procedure is not very complicated. I'm not going to say it's a simple procedure. There's no such thing as a simple surgical procedure because they can have devastating consequences, but you can do a first trimester suction, D &C or suction, dilation, and curetage in about 10 minutes. You have two rooms running. When you finish the killing in one room, you just move to the next room where there is a patient already waiting, and then there's this lie that they tell that this abortion thing is about an agreement or something between the doctor and the mother. No, it's not. You don't meet this patient until you walk in the room. You barely introduce yourself and you kill their child, and then you send them out on the streets. You have to give them a graham crack or maybe a little cup of juice, and then you walk away with the money. When you were performing these, was there any part of you before you had that revelation moment where you had to suppress the guilt of what you were.

"Charlie. Thanks for having me, man. Thank you. So several things I want to ask you and explore with you, but first, it's Juneteenth. How should we think about Juneteenth? You know, in my book, 25 Lies, they talk about how the Democratic Party lies. I was born on a cotton plantation in Haywood County, Tennessee. My father was a sharecropper, so I know the Democratic Party and the Southern Democratic Party very, very well. And Juneteenth is a celebration now that the Democratic Party is trying to hijack. The Democratic Party celebrating Juneteenth is like a Gestapo celebrating Hanukkah. The Democratic Party was the party that owned the slaves. They were the party that fought to destroy America and to keep the slaves. They were the party that kept Jim Crow for 100 years, keeping black people from voting and castrating them and murdering them. And now they want to say, oh, let's celebrate Juneteenth and the emancipation of black people. No, Juneteenth came about because black Republicans and white Republicans came down South and forcibly freed Southern black people from their Democratic Party slave masters. That is the truth. And just like everything else, the Democratic Party is trying to hijack and lie and deflect their sins on the rest of America. So, like, you know, they're just liars, they're miscreants, and black people can have as many holidays as they want. They can have Juneteenth, they can have MLK Day, they can turn down Confederate statues and they can turn down the flags. But until they decide to break loose from this demonic, evil institution called the Democratic Party, they'll never have any peace in America..

"There's Josh Arnold. Hi. Nice Cosby right over there. There's Willie griswold. Hey, man. I'm chick McGee, and here's Tom with a special guest. Thank you very much. Joining us in the studio. Legendary comedian Haywood banks is here with us. Hey, what's good to see you? Good morning. Hi, Haywood. Is your mother still with us? Your mother, she's still alive? No. Then what's with the hair? All the great opening questions. It's gotta be one of the best if you're a grown ass man. You're a grown ass man. You got hair down your nipples. What are you trying to tell me? Well, you know what? Cut my hair off. Oh yeah, it is much shorter. I'll turn around. Oh my gosh, your ponytails. If you could grow hair like that you would in a heartbeat. I do a beehive kind of a Buffon. Jackie Kennedy said, I would pull my hair back and it was this big puff of white hair. It looked like my head was going down a dirt road really fast. I didn't know you'd cut it. Well, there you go. Mister Haywood banks is going to be alive and in person at the uracil. You're a Seeger theater in West London. Indiana, don't scrub the plug. This is the only thing that's working for you. You're a secret theater, west Lebanon and Indiana Saturday night only. Also coming up this morning. It'll be Jimmy Pardo heading for go bananas and Cincinnati. So we certainly look forward to that. I can tell you've got your guitar out, Haywood. That's not the only issue that you're going to need this morning because we've got a little surprise for you coming up in the news. I think you're going to like something very unusual that involves one of your most famous songs. But right now, what's on your mind? Mine, turmeric. Oh yeah. Yeah, it's very popular. I married a hippie chick a long time ago. And she's been saying turmeric. Oh, for sure. This is a supplement that some are saying. Turmeric. I can't wrap my head. It's like, it's like waking up in the night and getting a drink of water up on one elbow. You know where you have to twist your mouth to kind of level the level of the water. On one elbow on your side, you know, trying to drink water. That's the same kind of what's turmeric for. Anti inflammatory inflammation, yes. Okay. And I do take it. Yes. You and I are turmeric cows. I take it as well. Big orange pill. Yeah. It was suppository. Yes, I shove it right up there. So is this a song about there anymore? Is this a song about turmeric or tumors? I have no work. Turmeric. Okay, great. Okay, good. No, this is a, what was this? Can you give me a test guitar sound? There we go. Zombies can be so annoying while they stumble around and grown. You try to watch them bocce in the park. But Giuseppe, who is leading all at once his face, they're eating folks are fleeing, screaming, seeming to lose interest in the score. Zombies are such a party bloopers crawling round upon the roof. There really are a buzz kill at the pool. Rolling in the moonless night scratching off the motion life stretching round the dresser you got pushed against the door. Back in the day I realized life was much more organized the dead would stay dead and wasn't that so nice 'cause who has the time to bury someone twice. A remote deserted island by the old insane asylum you would think a perfect place to camp. Though the zombies had to crash a Tiffany's vomit packed or hatchet with a double barrel shotgun and the makings of some more. Back in the day I realized life was much more organized the dead would stay dead and wasn't that convenient 'cause who has a time to re bereave bereavement. You might hear a zombie holler at the dead mall thrifty dollar by the gap that was once the gap. As the clerk explains the Visa card like the zombie is expired. The crowd behind the zombie tenses when they hear that zombie shout. Straight back expecting blood and ghost and aerial play out release a collective zobrist where's much worse than they thought when the zombie says, I'd like to speak to the cashiers. Very scary. Tribute to zombies from Haywood banks. Thank you very much, hey. You like the zombie movies? No. No, no, I don't care for them. Not a mention of turmeric in this all. I was thrown on a good turmeric

How safe is your retirement plan?
"To get a detailed second opinion exactly as fast as possible, I would say, And just because your broker advisers telling everything's fine I mean telling is not showing so showing is telling. In a better way show until member showing, too, So it's like going to show and tell and having imaginary here. Here's a rock I found in the petrified force, but you're not holding anything. Here's your No feet plan, but I'm not holding anything. So be very careful there. All right. That was number one. Do you know the number one was? Do you know how much you're paying in fees and commissions now, fees and commissions? There's another risk, in my opinion because of you losing money. And you don't have to write. That's unnecessary risk. That's a financial termite. Many times they're hidden, sometimes exposed out nothing wrong with paying of the small battle fees. I mean, you gotta pay some fees from that money management. If you were paying money management team to manage your money, That's a whole lot different than someone taking commissions out without doing anything, right. Absolutely right. So that's big. Big difference here. All right. So number two You know if the amount of risk you're taking with your nest egg is appropriate for your goals and your risk tolerance. Now let's break this down. First nest egg. What does that mean? You Jennifer having enough money to be able to live comfortably nest egg is the money that you really need to protect. We would nest like they call because a goose just sit on the nest and they'd sit on the 80. She was maybe he was never know Nowadays. Haywood said she was sorry she would sit on the egg. Maybe he would when she was out having a woman's night out kind of girls. Not sure. Well, they were dark today. You had a guard today? Because if not, what would happen, squirrels will come around. You ever see this girl? Go the bird feeder. Five Fox, climb a tree. Well, most less gross nests are on the ground. All right, well, that's what the different story. I've done my birds in general, so You're not guarding it. Bad things happen. Exactly. And what if you didn't build that? What if what if it was a lazy good? I'm gonna say chicken, but, you know, they fly around to get all the twigs and bud Let's say they weren't sample so that they weren't in Sanford of our books. They couldn't get a good read quick, So they put the the egg. They watched it out from the body. And then it went right through the next, huh? That's not good. That's not good thing it all. So how safe not only is your accounts or how but how safe is where you're holding it right? And so If you have a safe at home. Everyone make sure the safe is not is one that someone can pick up and run out of the house with. Yeah, sure. You bolted in Make sure it's bigger, but also make sure it's waterproof. Right. You know what fireman tell me does the most damage when they have a fire, water water. It's not the fire and so you need. What good is it have a your important documents in a fireproof safe If it's not what approved. You remember when yet, like homework due the next day, and something happened and you're going to get wet and it was like the ink would run all over the place. Imagine that, if that was your important documents, or maybe some currency or coin collection, or Dollar bills. They can't get in like the coin. Good stuff that happens, so we need to make sure to protect our money and more ways than than than anything But the month number one way you could protect your money is to make sure it's in the right place to begin with.

Die Word Have I hit in my heart? You see in our heart, we meditate upon the truth. The scripture Folks, let me tell you, we underestimate the power of the word of God. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness in Satan was tempted him. What Jesus do, he quoted the word of God? He didn't give a Ah theological, uh, exhort station or explanation to say he just quoted in the word of God. We have the idea today that the Bible isn't enough. The word of God is enough. It's all we need. We need the word of God. And we need to read it. Then we must meditate on and once we meditate on then we must obey it. You see what it says. In the end of that verse, thy word is very nine into the I've read it. It's in my mouth and in my heart, I'm meditating. Are that now? May I just do it? One thing you know the word of God, It's another thing to live it. That's what it's talking about here. We must be empowered by the word of God. Then fourth.

Sometimes a good hot day. You look off down a road. It looks like it's a big pond up there or something. Site is very deceitful. Bible says We're not to walk by sight. When you walk by sight. You will never walk by faith. Because God does the impossible God wants the things that are higher than our ways. My friend. There's nothing wrong with coming to the place to tell God that you're afraid of what you're facing. Fear is not an enemy of faith, sometimes where they all man, I don't have any faith because I'm afraid. No, that's all right. Fear encourages us to turn to the only one that can help us. You see when we have courage often times that courage is within ourselves. But faith isn't within me. It's all in him.

You know that He really had us just charmed into thinking that we could write anything we could articulate in and we could debate anybody. But he was just a wonderful teacher and And he empowered us big deal but no nonsense. So I was very much engaged with him. He would walk on campus and say this, Alexander I I'm going to pick up a ball. What about the book? And I'd say literary history of the and he'd say Yes. You know, I mean, those little games. You know, Haywood, he was set to show off about health area that he wass and we reveled in it. He lost. It was a very handsome man and smoked a

Advancing intelligent automation: Interview with Chris
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Malk. I'm your host Ronald smells or our guest. Today is Chris Townsend. Who's the area vice president of federal at Uri Path? Hello Chris Thank you so much for joining us on today. Good Morning. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah Welcome Chris. And thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at you. I pass hurt. Thank you I've been back for about eight months now. Joined in September of last year point prior to that I was at semantic where I loved their federal business for about four years on the cybersecurity side of things and prior to that I was at Cisco for about ten years and led their federal healthcare protocol. I'll tell you it's so refreshing. Cybersecurity is section important segment of our business. And what we do with our security you were always talking about. Haywood the bad things that could potentially happen to us in the technology we need to protect ourselves and now joining you I pass. And talking about our and the efficiencies we can gain and how we could make people's lives better by improving their day to day jobs and taking a lot of those mundane work off. Their plate has been really rewarding and very excited to be here great. We'll definitely you know it's kind of interesting. We obviously here today. We we talk a lot about television systems in a and machine learning and of course the role that automation has to play as part of that whole thing as well and it's interesting because we talk. I'll let you mentioned a little bit about cybersecurity. And that's been a hot topic for well over a decade DECA two decades of course but people didn't realize they go out cybersecurity prior to say the beginning of the two thousands. Because we didn't know didn't realize we had all these vulnerabilities in these systems. And now I think people are sort of making the same realization with intelligent systems. Like we have all these processes but like. Oh wait we can make the more intelligent. And this idea of hyper. Automation has gained popularity in recent years. And it's the the idea of combining a bunch of things together because not just about automations. Obviously more but the word hyper is all about so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with the term hyper automation? Can you explain a little bit about what it is? And what role does robotic process automation and other forms of automation. Artificial intelligence have to do with hyper automation. And of course the relationship to kind of what you're seeing and your customers absolutely and I love the parallel use the evolution of cybersecurity. Nearly two thousand. GonNa everyone was I connected to the Internet needed to protect their systems. And how that evolved to what is today and and the importance of it. I think we're really on the cusp of that right now. With artificial intelligence in our PA the evolution of how to use technology and apply if you look at the productivity of worker you know back to the industrial revolution over the last one hundred twenty years productivity is consistently increase over that time. And you know it was pretty dramatic in the beginning of the nineteen hundreds when we had assembly lines and more mechanization and an industry that really propelled that productivity when we moved into the I T H and of course introduction ubiquity ubiquity of it really accelerated the productivity of workers as. Well now we're seeing is. Productivity is increasing at a decreasing rate. That's flattening out. And the reason for that is we have all this great technology just providing a tremendous information and we're leaving it to employees now to sort through all that information aggregate collect analyze and it's really impacting our ability to be productive so the value of our PA and AI is to outsource that work were to shift that work of collecting aggregating and analyzing that data to robots to automation into A. So we're also seeing which is driving the shift to hyper automation. And the move to hyper. Automation is really putting. Rpa as the core of this evolution. And how we'RE APPROACHING AUTOMATION IN THE APPLICATION OF AI to improve productivity to offload this low value work so hyper automation in a nutshell aggravates. A lot of these technology capabilities across whether it's cloud. Hey I or PA other tools and systems to really accelerate productivity and accelerate the use of our PA. And if you look at the Gardner Studies Garces the top ten technology trends in twenty twenty. Move to hyper automation. And we're GONNA see a thirty percent. Operational cost reduction and the next two to five years as a result in sight broader mason.

In Black America: Spencer Haywood
"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each
President Trump, Haywood Gilliam And President discussed on Purity Products
"Federal judge is blocking President Trump's plan to use billions of dollars in military funds to build his southern border wall. US district judge. Haywood Gilliam issued a permanent injunction late Friday. He had issued a temporary halt last month. President Trump declared a national emergency to reallocate the funds to build the wall. It's likely the Trump administration will appeal to a
Tory leadership battle hots up, and all change at Change UK Politics Weekly podcast
"This is politics weekly. I'm Heather Stewart Naza time for us to believe in ourselves. What we can. And that's why I am standing to be leader of the conservative party Boris Johnson began his leadership campaign in earnest this week, telling him peas he was best placed to beat labor and put Nigel Farage back in his books. Meanwhile, leadership rivals queued up for an audience with Donald Trump as the US president blew into town for his photo opportunity with the Queen the contest kicks probably next week. So is it still for assist to lose this week? It's all change at change. You pay the six of eleven piece, depart, the flushing party. We talked to one of those sticking with it, Chris, Leslie. That's all in this week's politics weekly. And then there were eleven early casualties of the Tory leadership race this week were Kibble house, and James cleverly who withdrew as the party agreed new rules to weed out candidates with little chance of winning the six front runners with enough declared supporters are burst Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt. Michael g-o-v such each of it. And Matt Hancock Johnson is current favorite to be anointed. His prime minister in the week of the twenty second of July, but a month is a long time in politics. Could we be looking at prime minister movement or dope, McVeigh by the summer while I'm joined to discuss all this by Katie balls from the spectator, and Ellie Mae o'hagan and Rafael bear from the guardian Katie was going to say you had a ringside seat at the hustings on Tuesday night, but you, you were the ringmaster hustings on Tuesday night, and we journalists most of journalists were outside in the corridor. Sad to say what, what was the mood like in there in the room managed to get a seat? So I was chairing the discussion and it was one one by one interviews. I think demeanor was fatty polite atmosphere. I think ahead of it, there was some talk that both could be heckled. And it was this is because it was the one nation caucus. So this is the group of conservative MP's headed up by Ambrosia NICKY, Morgan, now, I think there are lots of conservative MP's would describe themselves as one nation conservative term. Isn't it exactly? Specifically this group, they have the declaration of values which relate to things like having a United Kingdom the environment at free enterprise. I think what the best known for is don't like no deal, and they are opposed to nodule Brexit. So both Johnson describes himself as one conservative useless to saying that he went take canoe deal Brexit off the table. So there was some of you that this could be a real confrontation. But I think everyone listened to ever and had to say and before you an hour after gone splash on the front, free newspapers his comments, so love invasion did gap from the then of. Associates. Boris Johnson's pitch is was that he wasn't going to soften his new deal Brexit nine, but he did try and play up of the things that he would have in common with the MP's and the room. I think what's really benefiting Boris Johnson right now is someone called Dominic Robb because compared to Dominic Robb Bros. Johnson, seems less right? Win some of the MP's in the center of the Tory party on various issues, and that's making them think that if they have to have Brexit Hugh, is willing to countenance a deal Brexit. Bruce Johnson is a less bad option than someone like Dominic grump. I'm Michael go wrath last night. At the second round of these hostage not shared by Katie. We should say put himself in different position again. Didn't he said on what the idea of October thirty first? So he's the sort of even slightly more sensible Exeter's. Yeah. This has been Michael goes position for some time, which is essentially sort of the most as it was author, dogs, true believe of breaks. It's here up. To the point of accepting no deals. Because now for a number of reasons that he can't quite go that far and say, you know what? No deal is something we should do partly probably just because he is just a slightly more rigorous serious thinker than some of the people who prepared to go along with no deal. Chatting, I think he genuinely understands the hazard for the state for the economy. That would be involved in that I think, particularly the department that he was in, when he was environment. Secretary just introduced him to a lot of the practical problems that go along with doing no deal. And also, he has to recognize he's very tight cool politician, he recognizes that, you know, between. I think he's absolutely right. What she said about Dominic Robb based carving out this space football to be sort of as it were one row into simultaneous when you've got someone who's out in the oil, being completely bonkers and that's actually quite good position for Boris to be in. And so Michael really has to then pitch himself as insofar as a center of the conservative party unity. Can't that, that would be him. And I think broadly speaking, that is at least logically true. If you did a kind of a growth with a sort of X Y axis that sort of leave one end remain on the other tra- Thatcherite with slash and burn pros therapy on one, acts and one end sort of old skirts, though, wet invest spend money on stuff at the other end, and it sort of scatter plot on that axis of where all the parliamentary Tories are you'd probably find they've pretty much in the middle of that the problem is that being that Younes you can also means you alienate people on various fringes, but he, I think he's probably put himself in fairly tactically, g position and any took him out. Dominic mopping out out in the aisle. There last night's contribution from him was that he'd be willing to provoke parliament to suspend parliament, if necessary to get no Brexit, no deal Brexit food. That's pretty extraordinary, isn't it? Yes. Absolutely extraordinary. And I mean, this is a very cliche thing to save it. I, I wonder what the. Action would have been in if, if a labour MP had said that, I mean, I feel that people would have been saying it Stalinism is going to be tanks on the lawn of parliament square. You know, of course, perogie parliament is a crazy idea. And yeah, I think we should really reflect on what's going on in the conservative party. I think something really extrordinary is happening in that party. That is the case. Katie's ideas that would have seen credibly fringe now in mainstream discussion in the Tory polcy I would save on the parade and parliament comment. Dominic robb. He is that minority view of all the candidates, and actually, like a lot of people have reacted very badly to the idea. You're going to provide parliament, so I mean, it is something that you can't say they would do it in that room. It landed very badly and is interesting that in the hustings chat, every single Brexit he was saying, they would Constance emoji Brexit. So sad Javid. Andrea leads him and Boris Johnson explicit. Early route parading parliament. So I didn't think it is a majority view in the conservative party Andrew, let's inset that she consulted Klux at some point, and had wet this wasn't really viable option such Javid said that he's what parliament had to have a say. So, I think what you seeing is when it comes to Dominic Robb, what of the votes, he is going to try and make the final t now the European research group, that is a great gift, the eurosceptics of the policy that feel most strongly on having clean Brexit. Now, I think by having this dividing line between himself and Boris Johnson. I think it helps Boris jokes in many respects, I think Dominic Robb is trying to pick up this European research group votes to try and get further and free the rans, and he now has something to say, I am more serious about delivering no deal than my rivals less sanguine about the tool, even if it's only a tiny amount even if it's just only grow Francois talking about perogie Parman because Elliott this really is happening here is. Constant ratcheting of the parameters of was a normal discussion about what you should do in this country, further and further away from things that are practical. And so when you hit talk about a sort of global trade breaks or clean Brexit, or no deal Brexit. There's really no discussion of actually involves what practically that means. The reason Dominic Robb way, anyone would entertain parochial parliament is because there is this question of, could you actually persuade parliament, is that some potential parliamentary obstacle to delivering no do? And even the quite moderate will self stop motoric candidates in this race when they sable I wouldn't do not. We Michael go says, will we pretty have to get another extension their explanation is because parliament won't permit no do now? That's a pretty cowardly way of framing it. Because actually the reason not to do is because it's a terrible terrible idea. There's no such thing as a clean. Brexit, immediately often odeal your whole legal system, your economy in chaos your force back into in the Goshi action with the EU but for a much weaker position is properly bonkers. No one was seriously. Counseling in two thousand sixteen or twenty seventeen is only Lanzoni gender now and as the sort of the framing of the debate moves it just becomes a entirely normal thing to this Gus. And when half of the field of Tory candidates are prepared to discuss that quite normally that suggests a as was just said that the conservative parties in, that's a very peculiar place, ROY now when I'm part of that is because the backdrop of the discussion is what's going on impeachable this week where there's a by-election and Nigel. Farage is Brexit party looks as if it might do quite well, right. That's, that's what's in people's eyes were having this discussion. I think there is a sense that the Brexit party if you're going to the various frets to the Tory vote, the Brexit party frat is tina's at greater threat right now than the liberal Democrat vote now it's interesting. Lots of Tory candidates went to say, hey, we can actually win both voters back. I think never skepticism as how you unite voters who have said many times they want to know deal Brexit. They were only take that as being a Brexit that they would accept as fitting. Description, and how you those remained conservative OTC feel very isolated by the party and looking at the nipple Democrats. And I think he looked at the European election. Results teapot, is very well very clear Brexit positions. But completely opposing and that's a riddle I think every main party when it comes to working at had to get a big coalition of voters. I think on the Brexit polity point, there is a general sense, and I think you saw this in the hustings this week that such Javid stage loss of support. Actually, when he said the way to beat the Brexit party is by not being the Brexit party, and I think there are lots of Tory MP's you feel that you need to deliver Brexit. But you shouldn't be doing straight the noise Farraj playbook to do that anyway. Let's talk about Johnson was a briefing with a Tory poster Lord Haywood this week, who was saying he comes out with the most popular candidate. So he's the conduct people most not recognized like he also comes out the most unpopular candidate. He's an incredibly divisive, and polarizing figure isn't he would lay relish, the chance of taking on Boris Johnson to think gem, an election. I don't think that labor would relish taking on Boris Johnson though. I, I also think that we shouldn't underestimate Michael g-o-v is particularly fees. I mean I is total speculation on my part, but, particularly if he's still in contact with his old colleague, Dominic Cummings, then labor probably will be in trouble who, of course, helped run the vote leave campaigns by significant figure in the vote leave campaign. Yes. On this very talented, political tactician. Boris johnson. I think Boras he, he represents the kind of era that we're living in.

Former GAM fund manager Tim Haywood blocked from AGM
"The GAM executive board loses loses a confidence vote at his AGM AGM for the troubled money manager taking place today in zero we heard a couple of minutes ago that the X von fund manager Tim Hayward who to pay it on on Bloomberg. And number of times form a bond manager at the heart of a scandal at the firm was denied entry to the meeting. So he was unbelievable. Is it truly unbelievable story? He was denied access to the meeting. And now, it seems that the the board has lost a confidence vote at the AGM. Remember that this goes back, many months, the Swiss money manager GAM has been trying to revive itself. After of course, the foam was struggling with this scandal that involved the former bond trader, Tim Heywood. So we'll keep an eye on what's going on there. Yeah. I think it's such a fascinating story because number one it's incredibly rare for executives to lose this kind of confidence vote at a shareholder meeting. It's typically in the bag, and it's a scandalous if they only get eighty or seventy percent, but losing competence voter shareholder meeting means that they've done a really poor job typically and the scandal of Tim Heywood. I mean, how scandal is really was it. They threw out this manager for seemingly very small infractions. And as a result have lost tens of billions of dollars. So it's a it's a fascinating story. And it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine. How many dare stones came out of the woodwork the pierces paid a man named Bill Eberhardt a stonecutter from Fulton County Georgia two thousand dollars for forty two forgeries. He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century. Many experts still dismissed the town Riverstone as an obvious phony. But it's possible that new research into Lisbeth in a pig Raphy chemical analysis and other rocket scriptures of the time period.
