"His in his Does when he then think about how relevant it is now compared to where it was then and how just kind of independent minded. He must have been in surrey irreverend to socialized expectations. You may not ensure that he must have on some sense. Knowing how difficult commercial audiences would find that clinton at that time. Nothing about has dated. You're right he's he's he's terribly good. I wonder if he's you so good holding the mirror up because it's so funny that people reviews they spill mance people that you can cannot connect with the relate to because i just felt like an ease us like a absolutely us and more serious now uneven in the context of the pandemic where people lost and searching for meaning and anti capitalist society and you know is things that coming up now people as they kind of wonder about what they've been spending most of the hours of their life doing any. We actionable in nevada. Now like you know or stuck in raina. All right. gosh should we do the quiz. All i want for you cass. Houston clift worked on a film after the misfits turned out to be less pleasant experience for both of them. What was the movie dine damien. No that i feel like i'm out of nine. This two months ago clipped was great on the misfit set. New all of his lines houston loved him so he cast him as the lead in his next film. As sigmund freud was royd it called the secret passion but they clashed awfully in that on that set. Yeah have it's it's interesting enough. I don't think it's great that one has dated quite a bit because obviously psychotherapy in the early sixties has changed law. yes damian. What other name actor was considered for gables part cary grant it was robert mitchum guest cary grant for everything under cast which actor sustained an injury before shooting started while he was training to wrangle horses. No it was. Montgomery clift injured his noise. Oh monte s-o-f-i you've both done terribly yet damian. Why was shooting on. The misfits delayed four months initially for four months or four months for months. It was delayed by four. Former musselman's the shooting A tropical thunderstorm was it because maryland was in rehab detroit thunderstorms last four. Now this one destroyed the cast. It was an active strike it. Oh my second guess. But i'd i really believed in the tropical thunderstorm. Well you both got zero. So i think we need to probably put this on ice. Come back in a couple of weeks. Emory record our guys. Let's do our final thoughts casio fest. I give this film for stars out of vine my takeaway is that it is a beautiful film to watch i. I do think it's not not the most up lifting bill so you have to go to. What would you in that mood and ready to have that experience. At the thing. I take away from the film is just how vulnerable each of these car designed actors are and how unusual it is to say that level of willingness to to speak to you i and we are on this kind of bravado or anything like that which i think was more typical to save as active kind of being very. I'm not your typical masculine character. And dinner maryland. Not being sort of ditsy and funny and it. Just sort of yeah. I think it's just such a great insight into what they were capable old sherri how much potential they had that was probably not fully realized throughout their whole career So yeah very special film in that sense. I give the misfits four and a half stars. It's paul hollywood star picture and curiosity at this point fills obviously as we've told very different to anything that marilyn monroe had done before so it's obscured matt respect and fans of who would i think wouldn't necessarily seek out this film but i have also never heard any maryland fan said that i didn't love it when i did eventually see it I would say the fans of the golden age of hollywood should seek it out. If i haven't seen it because it's very much commentary on that era. Just by virtue of starting clock gable at the end of his career and he was such an important player in the thirties that seeing him here almost provide some kind of closure. I told before about how. I struggled to find a term to describe this period of hollywood. Which i would suggest is probably the mid fifties to Seas and the misfits embodies that link. Look that lack of clarity. That i feel it slots in really well between the downfall of the studio system and the imminent rise of the independent picture and i just wonder if there's ever been a more appropriate title for a movie. Yeah i agree with you. But if i gave it four and a half stars. I think that it's a really like you say kesse a beautiful film to look at also think it's a beautiful film to listen to. You can't really watch the film. Without being hyper aware of the fact that it's maryland sort of lost harare. It's gables last hurrah. It was one of the last great montgomery clift performances that we got. He had a supporting role in judgment in uraba after this which was quite good but it was very short. He has a lot more to do here. And obviously it's backed by a beautiful supporting cast. John huston's very steady stable director. It is really down downbeat. But i think it's i think it's a really beautifully composed film all right guys well. That concludes this episode of cellular junkies. Please join us next month. We are going to be talking about gus. Van since nineteen ninety-five black comedy to die for very exciting love. Gus van saying that's a good line. Surprise didn't pick elephant.

"A little lecherous. Well i did find that a bit Icke initially when he was sort of very touchy with her and stuff because also roslyn comes as the most fragile woman in the world. Like she's gonna go to bed with whoever looks at her at this point in and he is so much older but i think he redeems himself when he tries to hold her and she says i don't like that way and he says well you know. Don't be disheartened. Give it a give it a bit of time or something like that. And i love that. His reaction is so gentle even obviously he's crestfallen but roslin is is involuntarily kissed and touched so often in this movie and even when she's having that that same that you showed me last night her and guido dancing. I made that very close in that same. I mean it's uncomfortably close. There is a lot of kind of open sexual exploration experimenting happening. Between all of the different. I know it does actually feel like a in. That scene especially feels like could do kind of progress into some kind of bluff triangle. But i'm guided. Doesn't you know the film also does pull i think by nature of having lobola have the first contact sorry guido have the first contact withdraws land and then gay come along and kind of take over that situation it does put guido in his place as a supporting characters will thereafter where he plays that role with a little bit of menace. It has a i guess. Motive gay clearly has more qualities than he does more attractive qualities but because the rice's and toyota he stays in the race and just gets perpetually more and more aggravated that he's not higher up on her list of interests. I know it's almost like she's talking a few bones to three lonely lost dogs with throughout this movie. Yeah it is. I mean there. Is this whole kind of beating of the chest. Kind of thing going on with these three men. You know very kind of very competitive but their methodologies are all very different we see some that that a nicer than others would you therefore say is of very trusting person because he said he tends to trust to being this close to these two men despite having told both of these mental having demonstrated to both of these men the note to go there. Well i think because gay thousand. Attach himself to anybody. It's easier to trust because because the parameters of your trust is so limited in we see him saying goodbye to the previous roslyn at the train. And the niro's lynn comes in so you know for him it's gonna be. I guess i guess what he's after is so limited that he's not particularly worried Strangely dates people named roslyn. Never really has this vibe ownership of well. I don't know what do you expect to get out of it. I mean fifteen horses. I mean like if there was a thousand or more but going all the way up there for fifteen kinda hits me sideways. I dunno veteran wages. Anything's better wages. Like i said it's difficult to put a word a descriptive word to this kind of time. In hollywood it is for me anyway. And you had these big directors like alfred hitchcock and david lean. Who making these films and the epic which crosses so many genres was i. Guess the big form of filmmaking. So you know a lot of period films and stuff but also weston's such a big form of film making it this time as well john wooden so many other great right does so. I think the thematic content of this film as well as the fact that you know the three stars were so close to death in the end. Unknowingly it points to this idea of the end of an era. So i mean the film say in this developing west of nevada which was booming in the nineteen fifties. But it's ironically at showing through the eyes of a cowboy which is an occupation that was becoming so rare and you know cowboys. In the sense of people who tend to farm animals they still existed i but specifically talking about gays progression which was traveling in the wilds and hooding up mustang that does not exist anymore and like i said before you know this fences around farm so there's less livestock roaming around free you know. The film does a really good job of showing that guy's livelihood is coming to an end. His industry won't be around for much longer and really. It's not around now. Because that showing bhai these expectations of these huge hoods of horses and it comes up that how many horses are there. Four or five of course motivated by roseland. He makes this decision to end his career. Essentially and i know that when we were originally talking about this task told by the old hollywood western aesthetic but even at that point weston's were period films and the misfits is a contemporary story. And i think that makes the dynamic of the misfits very interesting because we have clark gable at the end of his career telling a story about an occupation at the end of its usefulness. So he's a man in this foreign place out of step with time and if you just look at some of the western that were being made like stagecoach was an early one. That was say nineteen eighty. Then you move forward. Red river was eighteen. Sixty seven in the fifties high noon was the same time shine was eighteen hundred nine. The searches was eighteen. Sixty eight and then you move forward after the misfits even the good. The bad and the ugly was nine. Hundred sixty to the wild bunch was in nineteen thirteen. Boot cassidy and the sundance kid was eighteen. Ninety nine John huston previously made treasure. The sierra madre that was set twenty five years before it was made on the other hand distinct from those movies the misfits embraces. Its contemporary setting. And that is seen especially through. Its liberal nevada location. Where all of these needles are just taking effect and people are exploiting those laws and also. This is one of my favorite things about the movie. Is this kind of difference between the cowboy mythology represented by gay in purse. So percy's what we would think of as a las vegas cowboy show you cowboy. The entertainment kind is riding and rodeo events such as the bull bronco rides and it seems like he has no issue with this style of cowboy. But that's not what he is. He's working cowboy And it's ironic in a sense that guy's style of cowboy in would fade into nonexistence and purses rodeo cowboys would become even more popular throughout the seventies and eighties and they eventually became recognized. As professional sports that began to get televised looked up the classification of certain weston's around this period and there was the revisionist western and the neo waste and they were sub-genre of the western and the the latter of these is reflected as reflecting the traditions of the western film genre but set in the contemporary american west. And i'd say the misfits fits into that The revisionist western is defined as a sub-genre that subverts the standard full metal theme of the western including morally ambiguous storylines without clear heroes where the concept of rotten wrong became blood in the world. Where actions could no longer be said to be good or bad. I think it fits into that as well but maybe i guess that's a little more specific. The film deals with john. Luke what did you say at the start of the movie that this was classified as genre. Wise arousing action adventure.

"She won't be there so damian. What did you. what did you think of the misfits. When did you say. I thought i had seen the misfits before but watching it for this podcast. I realized that. I had seen part of it or see none of it at all so really. I watched it for the first time about a month a month and a half ago and i really liked i mean. I've seen a few john huston movies but mostly his stuff from the forties. Not so familiar with his. I guess middle career which is where the misfits would sit and the marilyn monroe movies. That i've seen like niagara and had a marry a millionaire and those kinds of movies are obviously very different from the misfits. I've seen a few montgomery cliffs and a few clark gable's but a game The clock gables would be those earlier films as well so really. I guess this was a new experience for me. And i was going in at sea going into this movie watching the way that people would have been watching unfamiliar with some unlike clark gable. So if maybe they'd heard of his reputation in his early movies. And you see this person who's completely different in this film and also you know it was very impressive very impressive seeing marilyn monroe a film like this. Yeah i think. You're right about clark gable. It's a very different role for him. He's usually very suave. We think of him as being sort of a social elite whereas here. He's playing a homeless drifter. Who's caught up in some romantic idea of the old west and isn't contemporary and he's very vulnerable here. Yeah and i think you also think of guy blue being in control Certainly in it happened one night which i guess was his first. His biggest film to that point He was in control of that. A guy in gone with the wind. He was very strong figure as well. Um whereas in the misfits he is a little bit Needed by his love for marilyn and ultimately a little bit. I guess Changed by her. Which is something you don't usually see from his characters or at least didn't in those reputable films that he might early on and he's the only character that really changes. Yeah i mean. I think they will have their journeys And i think they all have emotional changes throughout the movie largely against their own. Will you know you see these characters. Who pretty i guess in a stupid sense that set in their ways but they do change emotionally through the film kasa. What about you. You saw this film many years ago. I didn't you. Yes or when i was teenager when i was trying to see as many marilyn monroe booms coolidge. So i remember when i first are Maybe dane or something like that six game in I was confused by it. Like i liked it but felt so out of place from everything. Else i was watching from the sixties or fifties at that time and obviously because of the meaner maryland's demography to that point you know surrounding. That was very very different comedies and She was brilliant in hurries. And so when i watched this was in that context and i remember sending on thinking. It was a bad film or anything like that. I was intrigued by. But i couldn't lean into it as much somehow. It sort of felt like i was struggling. But yet what you get for these. Podcasts had a very different experience an indictment that's a reflection may or reflection on the time at which has watching it. I don't know about you. But i feel a bit voyeuristic watching it sort of that feeling of kind of really seeing someone and i think i i feel that for the clock able card Gosh like they really putting everything out there in a way that feels quite invasive from my perspective i feel like awesome really seeing them in a way in which you haven't seen them expires in that way before on sorry felt very. I felt very close to them in watching this and very empathetic to their experiences. Just cut off the plane. I'm not too late. Am i just give me five minutes after two years. Five minutes south carolina. That's all i'm not naming you. It's i never looked at any different. I just leave it hoping anymore. I understand i understand. Stand raymond going to be alone. I wanna be by myself. I think a lot of people probably saw the film initially or a lot of people who don't like the film maybe look at it as a little. Bit like an indulgent acting class. Because obviously it's very plot lewis and the characters are written to their written for actors to act the way that united artists tried to sell the film. You would have people would have gone in thinking that they were going to see the searches or something like that and instead they get this downbeat movie plot lewis and very sad and the film evokes death author miller said this is about life viewed from the lip of the grave. 'cause it's not like they're lost and then they're found turn or they're lonely and old connect it's kind of it doesn't give you any of that relief at all. In that sense. I think it was massively ahead of its time in that. It didn't give up the audience that relief when it was with that mccue spoke about a it was a poll of strasbourg. Yeah what what dramatic roles did marilyn monroe do before the misfits which she did niagara bus stop. Don't bother to knock knock yeah. She uses sexuality law in like even in niagara as seductive victim villain. Yeah and she. It's certainly not disguised here. Autho it's used by the film and it's part of her angst isn't as it's part of. What makes her. yeah tragic character. Do you feel like she gets a bit of a social justice platform in this film as well. The film's climactic murderers speech it. It is a little bit of a social justice platform for maryland. That's a really interesting shot. Because moisture of the misfit is used he uses mid shots we get a lot of shots of maryland's body her her bust line Her bottom the pingpong scene is very much about maryland's body and watching maryland's body but In that final scene where. She's just screaming at them. She just becomes adopt. And so we don't get the destruction of the body we just get those words which are the condemning words. But they're also words about her pain. We can actually see her by not seeing her. Because we're not distracted.

Before the mccarthy hearings she'd had two miscarriages and was already regretting that marriage the idea to adopt miller short story into a screenplay came from sam shore an early photographer. Friend of maryland's at the time maryland was locked in a power struggle with twentieth century fox. She wanted to broaden her appeal as an actress in most serious pods fox was determined to continue casting her as the sexy flake. In lightweight comedies feeling helpless miller movie with a serious pot in mind for maryland he presented his wife with the finished screenplay author third miscarriage in what must have felt to marilyn like the saddest consolation prize. Epo reacted to the script with a mixture of fear and betrayal. Millan noted that alerts you off a few times the dialogue between the cowboys. She seemed withhold full commitment to playing. Rosalind it isn't difficult to understand. Why watching the misfits today. It's hard to see roslin as anyone but marilyn monroe not the lushest ditsy sex kitten that fox promoted but monroe is.

Who couldn't handle seeing anything in pain whose beauty was remarkable that she found herself relentlessly pursued by men incapable of seeing pasta in the end maryland slash roslyn falls for the older and more philosophical of the three cowboys. Someone who can double as a kind of father figure.

Who for years had regarded maryland as an uneducated non actress who's only dubious talent. Was i sex. Appeal for the misfits presented maryland with a serious pot in a dramatic film. Something she wasn't being offered by fox. When miller managed to wrangle john huston to direct the man. Who'd been so nurturing with her first film nashville jungle. Monroe signed up. The misfits was produced by frank. Perry for seven arts productions a subsidiary of united artists. It was the right studio for illiterate black and white film that was even from the outset. More artistic than a commercial exercise the timing was good for houston who was struggling to get his bio-pic of sigmund freud off the ground. Once wasserman the powerful head of mca here represented both miller and monroe through white behind the project. Everyone wanted a piece of the misfits in november nineteen fifty nine millon met with clark gable to discuss the role of limeland the king of hollywood. Who'd made rhett butler. an iconic.

July nineteen sixty in reno on a three point. Five million dollars budget. The fifty day shoot stretched to ninety the production plagued with injuries filtering temperatures sudden location changes and an often inebriated director at the helm.

"Not dark. He goes yeah he goes. Yeah mama. I don't have the same ski and i'm what i'm like but the thing is. What is tom's our decisions in what we think that were making can go to these worst case scenario on the consequences and in i just have to look back and laugh and that's one that really i cried cried for years. Not because i didn't tell him until he was five and it was. It was like i made this decision consequences for my action. Because that's what i've been told my whole off a whole lot but basically that this was i was bringing this ally and so i think that so interesting but whenever you do leave at lead out on value-based decision or value driven decision but going back to that. Sometimes we take it for granted but how easy we can actually make those decisions when their lead but you have to know your values. So that's my question for you for the listeners. And audience like how values are probably something. They're overheard over done with but it's something that so important. How do you advise or give invitation for people to look and determine what their values are. That's really good question. Because i think it so incredibly personal to you know obviously to everyone i think You know asking yourself the question of who do you want people to know you are. I mean that. That's the place i started from. You know win when people talk about me and who i am. What kind of person i am. What would i want people to think or to say you know. How do i want to make people feel and those are the kinds of things. I think that you start with. It's this huge grand scheme that you have to come up with an algorithm. It really is kind of a person. Do you want to be and what kind of life do you wanna have. And if you are discontent with either of those things now doing doing some of that really honest inventory with yourself about. What are the things that you want to do differently. Where aren't you satisfied with yourself. We all have it and we can all do the work on to make some changes. And i don't think it necessarily has to take long and it doesn't necessarily mean you know uprooting your entire life. Either you know the lives. We have built on a lot of little decisions that we make every day. And you know. I really like to share to if people as i do. Think it's it's hopeful You're not really satisfied with where your choices have brought you and your questioning know how you can sort of right things. I trace this line back for myself.

Didn't seem the makes sense. And yet i decided i'm going to do it that i decided. And it's so funny when you make certain choices in your life how you can go back to that one moment and you can almost see what you were wearing. I remember exactly where. I was sitting when i decided i'm keeping and i'm going to raise my son and i'm gonna do everything i can to make sure that he grows up feeling loved and knowing that he was meant to be. So you know that was the first one indefinitely definitely the one that changed the course of my life and you know what is interesting about is that everyone has an opinion on them. Saw you know. I think you and i both can appreciate them of that but You know making the choice to be a mom that people who had opinions about should i or shouldn't die and you know then the questions the inappropriate questions about how i was going to do it and The questions that came later on. You know as i was as i was preparing for this it took me back to some places of remembering. You know how people would ask how i was going to afford to raise my child where we were gonna be as. I made choices to work. Then the questions like you're gonna apply. For which sean. You brought that suit jacket for that job and you know you're not on welfare anymore. That's great but now you're working too much you know. Now you know you're leaving your child at daycare So it's just been this really interesting learning path of really knowing you can make these choices and they are yours..

"huston" Discussed on Coaching for Leaders
"Has come out in a significant way. It's so true. I i had an experience where i was giving a. It was a male professor. I was giving him feedback and and i He wasn't someone who worked for me but he was someone who had specifically asked me to give him feedback on his teaching. And i'm i decided to ask this somewhat risky question dave and that was i had noticed that he seemed very shy and i was wondering if he thought that was an obstacle in his work as a professor and so did the did the risky thing and i raised it and i asked him. You know i. i've noticed. That seem a little shy is is that. Is that ever a problem for you in your teaching and he started to cry because he was worried that this was a problem in his teaching and the fact that he could finally talk about it with someone because he wasn't sure how students perceived him but he couldn't get over his shyness and it was quite a moment because we were then able to have a much deeper conversation about how he could let students know like. I'm shy and it doesn't mean that. I don't wanna talk to you. It's just that's who i am and in it. It was very empowering because he was a tenured professor he he'd been teaching for years but no one had had the courage to have that conversation with him so led to a great release but it also allowed us to be more productive about generating strategies for an issue that he thought was unmentionable. Mr rogers the great late. Mr rogers had has a wonderful quote about anything. That's human is mentionable and anything th that's mentionable becomes more manageable and i love that if we can mention it than it makes it okay for the other person to talk about it. You know. it doesn't mean we have to go and get degrees in therapy right. We can just allow that moment to be there. And i'm i'm it's okay it. It's it's okay that you're having those strong feelings strong emotions and then take a breath and let the person work through it and then you can continue and that person will feel chances are much closer to you and a more grateful for us a manager that you will allow them to be human. I want to mention another population as well. Two of those employees who are black indigenous people of color were. We haven't talked much about that in this conversation and the reason for that is there's just not as much research unfortunately on that employ population. I'm hopefully that will be different as time goes forward here but there is some research and one of the things that you mention is that Evidently when we're giving feedback to someone according to Evidently when we are giving feedback to someone who's in the majority in our workplace we praise their skill and competency. But we're we're when we giving feedback to someone whose face stands out. We spout vague pronouncements. About how nice. They are to be around. Tell me about that. how does that show up. It's so disturbing when you hear it right so there as you noted there's not as much research there's a lot more research on gender bias and feedback but now there are a couple of studies that have shown the pattern that you just described and that is when we're giving feedback to people who were in the majority in some studies. That's just been white employees. Some studies for instance in medicine. That's white employees as well as asian americans when we're giving feedback to people who are in the majority. We tend to focus on their competency. And there's a great study. Out of uc san francisco where they found that white and asian american Medical students when they were working in clinics they tended to get comments in their evaluations. About how knowledgeable. How thorough and sophisticated. They were great things to have when you're then applying for your next job however the groups that were in the minority and in this case those were the black medical students and the latino x. medical students as well as just a handful of native american medical students. What they found is that in there Performance reviews in the clinics. The the words that stood out that we're used distinctively for those groups to sprays for this day. There were words like nice pleasant open. And i'm not saying that it's bad to be called pleasant and open i. I would enjoy that. I hope people say about me. But if you're trying to decide which person to hire for your hospital do you want the person who's knowledgeable and sophisticated or the person who's pleasant and open. It's it's no brainer right. Obviously were much more interested in the person who's developing and showing all that competency and so we have to be really careful and pay attention to the adjectives. The praise that we use we probably think. Oh my biased. Won't show up in my praise but it does and this is something we really need to look for. There's so much more here. We could dive for our stories. I so appreciate your work. I'm glad that you are challenging us to think about giving feedback and framing feedback and challenging us to think about bias inclusion here and how we do it so the book is called. Let's talk make effective feedback your superpower by the way we've only we've only covered about ten or fifteen pages. There's so much more in the book and all areas of feedback. So i hope that you'll check it out and dive in an outpost. Of course my notes. As i always do from interview for those. Who'd like to dive and more on a few of the quotes and the research that therese's mentioned therese before i let you go. You know you've really been doing such a deep dive on this over the last year or two as you've been researching the book and writing as you have done that and taken on this project. What have you changed your mind on. It actually comes back to something. We discussed at the very beginning about unconscious bias. And the the one thing. I've definitely changed mine on his how easy it is for bias to show up in our communications i i had an experience. I was giving a talk at a major tech company. A couple of years ago already worked on this book and looking at at at gender bias and feedback and that was the talk i was giving was giving a talk about gender bias and feedback and easily ninety percent of the people in the room. Were under the age of forty five. Because it's was a company and you have so many people in their thirties and early forties and tech companies. And i put up a slide at one point that had a a white male manager giving feedback or talking to you could tell he had the The power rule to someone who is a young asian american female. And that's just a picture in the end. The thing that i said about this slide dave is. I said something like so typical supervisor. Employees dynamic where you have the white male and if you're going to a an under represented female You're likely to have a white male manager. And that. I made a joke and i said but your manager probably wouldn't be that old.

He joins us now. Dr shock congrats on the new gig. Welcome back to the show. Crag it's as you can imagine but Thanks for having me and thanks for the congratulations. Why have you decided to take on this new challenge in the state of washington. Well it's You know let me. Let me just say Again with mentioned about the sweet piece is that there's just so much that we have accomplished here and and so many incredible incredible staff members Department leadership and and just across the community cross county government but across the community. That have just done. Just such an amazing job It is really hard to leave. But i will tell you that what you know it. Opportunities are when they come before you and i was asked by governor ins lease Administration to join as the secretary of health. And it's an incredible privilege and honor to be asked for that And certainly i'm hopeful to be able to take that experience from here and what i've learned and been able to do here in harris county to state level and some excited about that. Would you characterize the challenges that washington state is facing as roughly the same as what we're facing here when it comes to the pandemic. Oh craig here's the thing so it it. We're all facing the same way. So i in fact i got this question yesterday from a reporter in in seattle and it was a very Very much a question. That i thought was interesting and it was about well. You know the state is big and it's diverse and you know it's got red and blue areas and it's got urban areas and it's got suburban areas and scott rural areas and not. Everybody has agreed on how we should fight the pandemic So what what are your thoughts about coming into that. And i thought that kind of sounds like harris county So you know it's it's seven point six million people it's it's larger than obviously harris county and in population and certainly size. But i will tell you that it. It is also true that throughout this pandemic what we are facing here in our community is similar to what we're facing across texas across the country and across the globe now everything is manifesting differently. So fortunately we although we've been seeing increases and yes. These are concerning trends here within our region. We're not seeing that same level that you've seen in el paso or other parts of texas other parts of the country now again we can't let our our eyes off the the the ball here because very quickly as you talked over the month things can change and when they change. They changed quickly. And so we've got to do everything we can to prevent it from happening in the first place. And that's why we've got a strategic opportunity right before the holidays to get things Right and for community to heed the call to to really change the behaviors that were having over the holidays. And that's going to really drive. You know what's going to happen for us in the next chapter for you know for our community. What's next for harris county health leadership. Well you know. Obviously county government is going to make a decision and You know. I'm leaving an incredibly strong Leadership team behind In fact you can see it on twitter. I tweeted it out recently and it's strong. It's experienced its diverse Dedicated passionate and that's what community wants from its public health leadership and so. I'm just incredibly proud of that team. Now it's never about the me. It's always about the we when when we do activities or we take on activities and so craig what i would say is that while i may be not here and cheering this community on from a distance that work continues and that team continues and they are here and they're ready but ultimately it's going to be county government and commissioner's court. Who's going to decide what they're going to do after i leave my last day. Here's december eighteenth What they're going to do after that in the interim period and certainly beyond that But i will tell you that we've got a great team and i'm hopeful that the community remembers the incredible work that we've done you know local health department of the year National accreditation Microsoft research Picking us as the only community in the country. The only health department the country for its project premonition We've you know we were ranked number two recently and peer rankings by seven hundred and forty local health departments across the country for who. They look to initiatives. There's a lot of incredible work that we've done and craig one that i know you're I've talked about this before. Related to animals When i started at the at the department as the director are leave alive rate animals. That left our shelter. Alive was was about fifteen percent. This is twenty twelve twenty thirteen. It is now ninety eight percent. We have actually changed the narrative. These are things that we have to be proud of as a community and as a as the government. I just really want to just say that. We can't do it alone. In this pandemic has shown this you know obviously harvey and katrina rita i e carvey all these hurricanes and tropical storms but also you know h one n one ebola zico now covid nineteen. We have a lot of work that continues. There's never a good time to leave. But i'm very proud of our department and our team and i'm excited about the fact that they're going to continue that that work into the future. What parting advice. Can you offer to huston. Ian the department and its initiatives not just about cove in the current surge in cases about the region's health and general. Well a two things. One is that look cova. Nineteen is a. It's a crisis it's pandemic it is. Let's not let's not let our focus off of that so What i've been calling twenty twentieth the first half of football game. It's the first half the holidays coming up here. We're going to be at halftime. Usually people take a charge Recharge during halftime they changed strategy. They think about what's up ahead. We know twenty twenty one's gonna be vaccines vaccines vaccines and certainly We've got to be readying ourselves for the second half so halftime so critical. So if you don't have to have thanksgiving holidays with a lot of people don't and fact Make him very small holidays. a few people your social bubble your immediate people in your family Don't travel do those kinds of things if you're gonna do those things. Please look at our website for safety precautions. That's the one thing koba. Nineteen craig the second thing. Let's remember the value proposition of of true health. Not just health care delivery about prevention about the investment in public health systems. The reason that we have got into some of this mess across the country is we have not appreciated the value of public health and prevention. And so we wait for people to get sick and then we try to do things. We wait for people to get injured and we try to do things. Let's invest upfront. And if we do that in county and city and and even state and federal governments we invest truly unhealth then we can have a healthier community.

How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

I'm sure it'll come to that some points. Yeah at the moment We wait with anticipation for being a fight at night. Yeah there you go and that'll be the first time using it with an audience correct. Oh cool yeah really looking for. Oh Yeah Yeah it's Kinda it's an Korean section town and they're like oh good so they'll be some Some fans like that's one thing that. Jiang is a big star in Korea very yeah and you know people were saying How this is an opportunity for these kinds? Asian cells do into Hollywood. I kind of feel that there's an opportunity for Hollywood breaking Korean. Yeah I think he can play both ways now. You can be a really good thing. That would be awesome so you get or more of an interest there too. Yeah Yeah it's an interesting As far as that works a little differently than some of the other directors. You've worked with necessarily this one Say something that I really enjoyed was just husband. Laws clear concise. And I've seen I've seen like the. He's all he after takes. It seems like whoever was in the. You all got a chance to watch what you did and know he didn't all those carts cut taxes Chester's reopened. That's a nice as directed yourself. You can appreciate that. Yeah very very open Respectful lovely match the producers of the Korean producers to our lead actors villagers out at all so I guess there was hardly if there was any location. I couldn't tell it seemed like everything was studio. Everything Student Wow. It's amazing how do you have? I mean there was some heavy galloping near some beach just like two hours away from Oracle so some of the long stretch of voice back like those words on Jerry but the whole the whole backgrounds though yeah sure but even then even even if we were on you know outside still WanNa be outside of the. We're going to see and as far as you're looking in your transformation. Is You know a lot of actors a cold me. That when they start putting the makeup on they find the character a lot easier. Was that the case with the colonel or every month. Because there's an the mouse was such a large part of this character and the way the Nass was so hikes straps force me to speak way. Hct headed certain wage. I can only really one. I changed that made me move my head and Character and he also had like a Cape like outfit too so not the easiest. Probably move around it. No no that that that force me to move in a certain way so it was at first a little hindering but finally Very instrumental in threaten characters actors movies. I mean there's a graphic novel quality to this movie. There's no doubt about. It has just help but it comes across in a good way. Yeah I believe so too. I'm sort of like a memory. Yeah Yeah I see that. I definitely saw that like like even you know Ninjas th this guy itself was like You know very very much like you remember something rather than maybe what? It really is exactly. It's almost like somebody is telling this myth or story and has been told over and over again and embellished bit more every time. It's told yeah now I is there. Will you be going Doing anything any other films coming up as far as shooting No not for the moment I'm hoping to dedicate some time film that I'm developing and Now the next year. So I'm Kinda trying not in a way should not work right now so I can work on my own thing very cool. That sounds great. Appreciate you taking the time to talk about this project in a real pleasure In your family is I think one of the first families of Hollywood as far as I'm concerned thank you sir and I mean the work that you've all done speaks for itself and there's a Lotta great work there. We'd take lack of screen and on happy holidays..

Cool new movie that mixes mythology very cool sword play and Ninjas in the old West the warriors way we chatted about this film acknowledge roles in thirty days of night and Wolverine. He Will Next starring conspirator a period piece with Norman readers of walking dead and James mcevoy and it's directed by Robert Redford. Here's my conversation with a talented actor Danny Huston chummy. Hi Mr Houston how are you? I'm very well thank you. How are you? I'm doing fine. Where are you? I'm actually in Hoboken New Jersey. That's where yeah have you seen some of material I have actually The funny thing is Before this call. I was actually editing together from my website. Little like behind the scenes of your movie okay and it featured some soundbites that you did and I it was part of like I research and then I saw like all these great clips so I think I think it's a great movie. It looks pretty cool and I truly believe it's some tastic in some tactical kind of way. It's a great sort of kaleidoscope of Rana's but yet it's It's a it's it's quite a usually contained fable quality of it and what appeals to me. Right off the bat is essentially a man who becomes the greatest swordsman on planet Kind of loses himself along the way and this movie seems to be his journey to try to rediscover who he really is yes. He has to the very thing that he was trained for. He has to renounce violence and the case. Cowards is revenge and She requires his violence expertise to the angle to conquer hurting. Sort of the nicest send like Play there in the middle of it. Mike character isn't wrong because she starts the kernel oil and things. Many many years ago but in a way snowy scarring space also scarred. His is hard and some kind of perverse like way romantically searching. Her hung his look and everything about him. just You know just really got me. And they all seem to be like a bunch of misfits in this town That that seemed to be there and I guess he kind of fits into that a little bit. Yes and has this wonderful sort of surgery owning kind of mythology to it and and and And yet it also has sort of the eating. I'm grabbing onto Italians. You're leaning US. 'cause magical Circus show know thing happen. He's Connie's they're all kind of victims of the landscape all existing. They're all Misbehavior on their own. Lives lost within the context of the store and judging by the Look of the movie. It's very deliberate very mythical almost for the Times Times a little like childhood memory yeah. I'm I mentioned surgery. Only for a couple of reasons. But also in a way villain reminded me of those ways. Cow Palace kids and Heroes Year reminders. Coldeze character. Yeah very much. Yeah I'm sort of. There's there's there's something where where Where those kind of Miss Daljit can do in a way but also the villain is is. You reminds me of that that I used to look at is scared me. Oh Yeah Interesting. It seems to achieve that look. There was a lot of green screen used a lot of Greens Times. I must say it was very congenial. You have no idea how and and and I was one particular time when when the director was very helpful training of visual worlds from you could see tell me to shoot up high one of my shooting lights twenty seven the stage lights numbers and and I got okay but what is like. It's a Ninja. I and are there other morning. Just he's an all around. Oh my God and and of course i. I realized that that the colonel would be terrified of of of of such sites. Nothing is necessarily a coward. The cats this votes here so so you know there were there. Were there were times. That was slightly lost. Thank God for for a very specific director. Well I've seen that scene and that scene is pretty intense to scare anyone. I've never seen so many ninjas literally fly out of this guy like that it was really pretty intense imaginable that the turn of the century kind of western Cat Western cards come in fossils and I think what really makes his movie standout and it's really credit all of you. I tend to clip that I have. I'm actually putting together or you're talking about You know doing your own sword play as much as you possibly could not to involve the stunt double to give give it more realism. And there's one scene between you and kate that's really I think it's one of the set pieces of the film. As far as action sequence there was really intensive pipe between two. Yes I mean. It's one of the one of the highlights from the in in in my career was working out those sort sequences. Hey Because so much like a dance ballet and working versions very very athletic but also the construction by the coach mask rather heavy sword. I add Made it made it very challenging. And we're very proud. Those results results that finally sequences is Her and I know stumbles well. And no and no strings attached. Yeah that was That was really one of the intents scenes that and all the ninjas literally it was like raining Ninjas that once seen it really what it looked like and you re really need the director to deal explain something like that possibly imagine and speaking director Mr Lee. He wrote it and he also is. It's really his first direct. Oriel debut in Israel so yes but I'm very sort of You know a film starring teachers so that So very Some savvy.

American Airlines Taps New Leader for Network and Schedule Planning
"We got some news just around general airline stuff Some some big news I guess and then some not. So big news I guess let's just start with American American is hiring Brian I don't know how to say the last thing Brian Z. And he's GonNa take over network planning for American Huston for a continental and united and then Western really I if I remember correctly. He's from western Canada. Like maybe from Calgary Proper Robert so it was sort of a homecoming for him when he went back But the interesting part of this to me is he. He's been in the industry a long long time a lot of good experience and especially especially in Development of last week since he got there always heavily focused on Asia so in at United United he was As I understand it the driving force behind the push into more Chinese secondary cities trying to grow those markets trying to expand and that way among other things those markets didn't all work out and certainly working at let's go to even now But also then showed up at Westjet right as they were planning their seventy seven with the proper premium cabins and you may recall the initial announcements where for Asia. Yeah and then someone somewhere along the way and they switched it back to being Back back to Europe by. He's got an interesting Asia. Focus in that historically at least in that makes me wonder just what the situation is going to be with Eric because they don't have Asia focus. Third Time's a charm. I
Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites
"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the

Missouri Senate race: Claire McCaskill, Josh Hawley race intensifies
"You know, this could go either direction, but like you mentioned, you know, Heller. Was considered the most vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and he still is by he's actually been able to get around some of the issues that were really big Thornton inside at the beginning of the campaign. One of the big issues that Jackie Rosen who is a political newcomer. She's a first term congresswoman she was recruited by Harry Reid to run for the house in two thousand sixteen. So she doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's been going after Heller really hard on healthcare. Heller was one of those senators who came out initially when Senate Republicans were debating repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and said, you know, I have some concerns about this. But then he eventually voted for that motion to proceed voted for the skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act to get rid of the individual mandate. So Jackie Rosenthal, going after Hans saying, you know, you flip flopped on the Affordable Care Act. She's been running these really memorable ads featuring this orange inflatable to man, the kind of thing you see outside the car repair shops as sort of I come here type deal all she's been running ads accusing him of being Senator spineless saying he'd been blowing with the wind. Of Washington, and that sort of been her biggest attack against him is that he's cave to Senate Republican leadership, and he came to President Donald Trump going against the best interests of Nevada. And what's interesting about that is Heller actually said that he was ninety nine percent opposed. Donald Trump is sixteen election. He's been slowly warming to the president over the last two years. It was really happy about tax reform campaigning on that issue. So Jackie Rosen's than sort of trying to keep her her head above water, and sort of just run a straightforward campaign and the biggest attack against hers. This fact that she's a political newcomer running ads against her saying she's accomplished zero in the house. She accomplished zero before she announced her bid for the Senate. So why do you want to elect her when you know, I've been around? He I I was in the house in two thousand six he's been around for twelve years. So they have that experience contrast as well. Interesting because Heller was was not pro Trump. In fact, looked like he was gonna face a a primary from a very very trope pro-trump candidate Danny hurricane. And apparently Donald Trump called often Danny Tarquini and told him to run for congress instead. And now Heller seems to be pretty Trumpian running running in this campaign. Exactly. Yeah. When when janey Tarquini and who's run several political offices in Nevada over the years has never won. But but frequently runs he got in that race, and he actually said that Heller sort of waffling on the Affordable Care Act to repeal and replace was one of his main reasons for getting in the race. He was he was unhappy that Heller wasn't out in front behind the president from the get-go. But then you had Heller changing as though ultimately being a little bit more supportive of the agenda and that president ended up getting behind Taylor. And actually recently called him one of his his his best friends in in congress rally out here in Las Vegas. Okay.

There in the end it, was several Thousands of protesters there are no official numbers the estimates range. From five to ten thousand people and the police calculated with just a few hundreds? Of.
