The Unfortunate Casualties of an Anti-Biotech Attack

"Today is a really special podcast is an amazing guests that we have that takes us back to the time when the tenor towards genetic engineering was very different back around the turn of the Millennium I. Guess is the turn of the century two two. It was a little bit different field before the Internet really took over the defamation of scientists and career assassination, and those opposed to technology took on other means to solve their problems. At least to. Agitate and we'll talk about that today in an event from two thousand and one and we'll talk more about that in a second speaking with doctor, Toby Bradshaw A. He's a professor emeritus in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington and thank you for joining me today. I really appreciate you being toby. It's a pleasure to be here. Yeah this is really an interesting point in history and I remember when this happened. And in a kind of kind of fell into the background a little bit, but let's set the stage if we go back to two thousand and one. What kind of work were you doing in Merrill Hall at the University of Washington. Since the mid nineteen nineties, I have been working on the genetic adaptation and growth in hybrid poplars. They're fast growing tree. News all around the world, but heavily in the Pacific northwest up to produce. Hebrew products primarily so I was involved with. The early molecular genetics research, including M Gino Mapping. And ultimately identifying traits that were responsible for faster growth, which I had a basic interest in, but which of course the temp companies had a commercial innocent. And where you're working with genetic engineering, or were you really just dealing with hybrids myself? I was only producing hybrid poplars through traditional cross pollination methods that have been used for centuries in in poplars around the world I was also collaborating with Steve Strauss. At Oregon State University on some preliminary work to genetically engineered trees, four different growth form to produce more would in a smaller land area, but I myself had never still have never a genetically engineered a tree. And really the facility that you were working at. It isn't on the campus, right? It's it's the center for Urban Culture and what are the kinds of things that were being done there well. It is technically on the UW. Campuses at the very periphery separated from the main campus by the Union Bay Natural Area A place for I enjoyed bird every day on my walk to work, so that was a nice interlude. Of every day, but the other kinds of work that we're going on at the Center for Urban Horticulture included a restoration ecology primarily for wetland restoration, understanding a plant succession after the eruption of Mount Saint Helen's in nineteen eighty was conservation work for rare plants, going on so rare plants in Washington be propagated for reintroduction into the wild, and that was a particular focus of my colleague I'm single ride card who you will hear more about later and the graduate students in Undergrad who doing their own research, their work on a wide range of topics, including for example how to? Have, urban gardens produce more food for people who otherwise might not be able to afford a fresh vegetables, so it was. A typical horticulture center I, think it most universities where there was a mix of basic research applied research in outreach up to the public in the form of extension. And, so it doesn't sound like this was the you know the the center of the universe of Monsanto or something I mean this sounds like a really practical extension oriented center that had significant roles in community, and and and even just in the regional agriculture's that's. Is that more what it was about yes? Oh, the University of Washington is not a land grant university. It's not an agricultural school. School, in the focus at the UW has always been a basic research and the center. For urban horticulture included in its mission, some applied research and quite a bit of extension and outreach up to the public, so in that way it was different from much of the rest of campus in its mission, but by no means is the University of Washington on any kind of center for plant biotechnology now. It isn't now. Yeah. Good basic biology know basic science and a lot of really good plant people there, but it's Can you give me a little bit of sense? Outside the University of like two, thousand, zero, two, thousand and one, what was the environment like a genetic engineering in your perspective and in your area of the country? What was really happening? Then in that environment, it was an interesting time. The first genetically engineered crops that were planted on a wide scale, had only been in production for less than a decade, so as a relatively new technology on the commercial sector, perceiving though scientists and people who keep up with science for familiar with the progress of genetic engineering. How it was eventually applied in agriculture, get caught a lot of the general public by surprise, and as everyone who's familiar with plant biotechnology knows that can sometimes lead to misunderstandings. And worse at the the first inkling that I had that anyone might be opposed to the kinds of research that I was doing was just a couple of years before in nineteen, ninety nine, when Seattle hosted the World Trade Organization meetings and I had some of my. Poplars. That were growing in pots out in the back forty behind the. Urban Horticulture. Cut Down by vandals during those WTO protests mean. As often happened to these kinds of things at my mind. The damage done to my plants was fairly minimal. Because these are poplars. Cut Him off. They just re grow the we. That's how we actually propagate them through cutting, so it had zero effect on me, but at the same time they went through and cut down all of the older seedlings that a colleague of mine was growing for re, vegetating streamsides in Alder. Don't re sprout after being cut-backs. Again it was one of these ready fire. Aim moments for an activist who really didn't understand. Even the species of trees that they were looking at i. mean did a lot more damage to someone else's research than to mind we might. Research was essentially funded by the wall critics,

Daphne Merkin: 22 Minutes of Unconditional Love

"This week. I'm talking to someone who I've wanted to talk to for a very long time. But it took until now that she's written her second novel her first novel. enchantment was written over twenty years ago. The new novel twenty two minutes of unconditional love by my guest staff new American is recently published by Farah Strauss. It's a book that has been. In the works. For All that time this version of A crucial event in twenty two minutes of unconditional love in that novel enchantment Daphne tell me. What was it that held you up? What took twenty years to create the snaffle? I'd go even further Michael and say it took thirty years. I described what I wanted to do. Put It that way to an editor who was at a press that no longer exists and I said I'd always been interested in obsession. And the truth of the matter is. My first novel in Chapman. I had originally described to Billy Vaughan of which. The publisher who I laid a worked for five years. I said that was about A. But this was. To be a novel about. What happens if you get involved if your woman who gets involved? With a man who is? In some simple way quote very bad for you. Could be on any level psychologically emotionally, physically abusive the whole spectrum. and. I had read such books. 'cause it always interested me. And the woman usually ended up either dead. Like Ana, Karenina? or Hold off to an institution. And I was always. Interested in a degree of I guess what is called Sadomasochism not in its theatrical form like story of Oh Never much as they say, did it for me, it's too theatrical into Saad is to theatrical for me, but the sort of. Ways in which power gets contorted in relationships, interested me. They said I said I wanNA. Write about obsession. They said fine. They gave me in advance. At that time. It was not. Small. In fact now again it is not sold for a novel, which was one hundred thousand. And! I went off and wrote. To page two hundred twelve. Still remember I remember the scene because the scene is in this. Final novel, which has the lawyer? Character, who the woman is involved with? Named rose asks or demands that. The protagonist judith shown. Cruel across the floor for him. They did as some kind of tribute. To her quote love. More accurately, his power over her, and I got to this page. And I stopped did. And I thought. Just to explain Michael I come from A. Observant Orthodox background. Completely observant not acidic. What's called? Modern Orthodox. And I was I'm one of six siblings. Nine parents were German immigrants. And Even though I had already written. I mean enchantment. What had been treated basically as a memoir. The term auto fiction which I personally could do without hadn't been invented yet. So. If you wrote very autobiographically impelled fiction. Your average lay reader would simply it as oh, she's talking about herself and there were many. Many parts of the novel that were similar to my family. But if I wanted to write a memoir straight, I would have written a memoir, but. All I'm saying is I had already revealed. Things you don't say about your family. If you a modest product of Orthodox background.

"Close associate of the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is under arrest today. Her name is Gillian Maxwell and just a quick warning that some parts of this story or really disturbing because of the nature of the alleged crimes. Prosecutors say Maxwell helped Epstein sexually exploit underaged girls have seen died in prison, and authorities ruled it a suicide. But the investigation into what he was doing his continued. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas has been following this story. In the meantime, he Ryan Good morning. How did Ah, Maxwell and Epstein know each other? Maxwell comes from a prominent family in the U. K. Her father was was a media magnet there. And she and abstain met in the 19 nineties. They dated for a period of time, but on a broader level, she became a close confident of hiss. They had a professional relationship as well. And there have long been allegations in lawsuits brought by Epstein's alleged victims that Maxwell for years helped abstain recruit young girls to be sexually exploited on even after Epstein suicide last year, prosecutors said that the investigation is, you noted, continued into his associates and possible co conspirators, and Maxwell was seen then a za likely person of interest for investigators. She's facing federal charges now what are the charges? She faces six counts in all, including conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in sexual acts and conspiracy to transport miners. To engage in criminal sexual activity. She also faces perjury charges for allegedly lying about her role in the scenes activities when she was asked about it under oath during a deposition a couple of years ago. What are prosecutors saying about what they allege? She did. Well. The events detailed in the indictment took place between 1994 1997 on they relate to three underage girls who were allegedly abused by Epstein. Here is how the Acting U. S attorney in Manhattan, Audrey Strauss summed up Maxwell's role. Mansell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Prosecutors allege that Epstein and Maxwell had a sort of systematic method for luring these young girls in they would pretend to befriend them by taking them shopping by taking them to the movies by asking about their family or their school life. Maxwell would encourage the girls to let Epstein pay for their travel and their education, and prosecutors say that this was all part of a scheme designed to make these young girls feel indebted to abstain. And once Epstein Maxwell had developed a report with these with these underage girls, prosecutors say that Maxwell would try to normalize sexual abuse in a couple of ways by undressing in front of the victim. Or being present when Epstein was sexually abusing the victim on in at least one instance, as we heard, Strauss say, prosecutors allege that Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay, so she's arrested now she's been charged. Does the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein stop here? This is not the end of the road. The top prosecutor in Manhattan Audrey Strauss, who I mentioned earlier said yesterday that this investigation is still ongoing. Of course, this case has generated a ton of public interest, in part because I've seen had ties to a lot of prominent people that includes Britain's Prince Andrew. On. There are questions about what Prince Andrew, for example and others. Other prominent people knew about absence activities. As for Maxwell, she has serious charges here. This sort of charges that could induce her to cooperate with prosecutors and share what she knows about other associates of abstinence.

Carbon pollution from the fashion industry is on the rise

"When you shop for new clothes, you're probably not thinking about the climate, but making apparel creates carbon pollution, and the industry's emissions are on the rise as people by and discard their clothes more frequently. The problem is made worse by the rise of fast fashion closed cheap to make and cheap to buy. But chin-yen of the World Resources Institute says apparel companies are starting to take climate action. Many companies globally are setting targets, and then really trying very hard to reach those targets yen co authored a paper that can guide the industry. She says the biggest challenge that clothing brands often outsourced manufacturing to companies in other countries. Those companies may rely on others for raw materials which. which makes it hard to measure and reduce carbon pollution, so a lot of these brands are doing is to educate an engaged the suppliers. I think that's what we want to see him. We're seeing more and more for example. Levi Strauss helps. Its suppliers obtain low interest loans for renewable energy, efficiency projects, and Nike is helping manufacturers from fossil fuels to solar and biomass. Yene says Moore suppliers get involved. It will help reduce carbon pollution throughout the industry.

Ghislaine Maxwell, longtime associate of Jeffrey Epstein, charged in sex abuse case

"Of late investor Jeffrey Epstein, now in custody, transferred to New York being transferred after Gillian Maxwell was arrested this morning, They went to court to hear federal prosecutors now looking to hold her accountable for what they say she and Epstein did. Well, W W CBS reporter Peter Haskell heard from acting U. S Attorney Audrey Strauss then talked about this with anchor Mac Rosenberg on Thursdays. Afternoon Roundup. Peter What can you tell us about these charges? According to the prosecutor, Maxwell was the key player in the sex trafficking scheme. Just travels says she recruited, enticed and groomed girls. His hymn is 14 10. Shanab's team both abused the Children. The six counts include sex trafficking and perjury. And when do prosecutors say that these crimes took place? So Strauss described his really as a prequel to the Epstein case. The charges against Epstein stem from crimes committed, allegedly between 2000 to 2005. The Maxwell case dates back to 1994. If you put them together, the allegations are very, very similar. At the time periods. You're different, and according to authorities, he's crimes took place in New York City, Florida, New Mexico and London. Epstein's death, of course, ruled a suicide last year in a Manhattan jail cell. And in the past, Maxwell has denied any allegations here. So what happens now? Prosecutors her hoping that other victims will come forward. His indictment mansions has three of them and not by name. It is believe there are other victims out there. And they hope that by bringing this case and buy the spotlight in the attention that have receives, others will step forward. There are a number of elect alleged victims here. And some of them say that they were also abused by Epstein's friends said there could be some powerful people who are beginning to sweat now. And the prosecutor says his investigation is continuing. Thank you, Peter.

"j strauss" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class

"Who presumably started out his Yaakob and Americanized his name when he got here was also a Jewish immigrant then he had moved to the United States from Russia as a young man he likely I also worked in dry goods as a cutter and a Taylor. Although he had also dabbled in the brewery business in some other enterprises he was also an inventor he had developed a screw based clothing fastener and ironing board could also stretch clothes and folding press and those last two items were granted patents but that fastener was not take had also expanded his tailoring work to make tenths and wagon covers to capitalize on the need for those kinds of goods in mining towns in Nevada where he lived. He started making very sturdy. Long-lasting trousers for Labor's out of duck and Denham duck is like a very densely woven cloth and he eventually on the six suggestion relative started buying his duck yardage from Levi Strauss and company. Yes duck is usually compared to like a very densely woven canvas. Almost IT'S A. It's one of those things that people still make work clothes out of. Sometimes I don't love it. It's a little stiff for my tastes. It's very sturdy. It will last a long time and to please one of his tailoring customers who came in to order work pants for her husband who apparently wore through them at a pretty good clip Davis used rivets to reinforce the pockets. The story goes that the wife came in because she said my husband is worn out all his pants and cannot leave the house. I have to come places order. So she had to go back with a piece of string and Markley his waistline and other measurements. And then bring it back to the shop and she was delighted it appeared. Her husband was delighted. Jacob leader soccer has been around town wearing these pants so it seemed like everything was going great and he included that detail. Those riveted pockets. Unin number of other pairs of pants because people started to see these pants town and asked where they came from and could they also get the same ones and so he started making these pants with duck canvas and riveted pockets for more and more people as the riveted pants pocket became popular with his customers. Decided he should patent them but that was a really expensive process and the story goes that his wife didn't want him to spend money that they didn't have trying to do it so along a payment on an invoice that he's into Levi Strauss and company. He also sent two pairs of pants with the proposition that the company applied for the patent in his name and in return he would give the company half the rights to sell the pants. This is like the most trusting move. I can possibly imagine someone doing I know. Here's this thing I invented. I would like you to help me patent it by the way. It's not padded yet but here it is yet especially having been working on this day in history class and recently recording episodes on people like Filo Farnsworth and Nikola Tesla like. There are so many stories about a big business. That's like GonNa take this patent from you for no money and x Ray In a lecture that I was watching online of Levi. Strauss biographer whose book I used for a lot of this. She was saying to her. This really indicates how trustworthy Levi Strauss was perceived to be by people. That just knew his name like he just had this reputation for being a really honest and good man and so this person completely trusted him with his invention and there it went and Strauss was no fool. He went for the idea really quickly. He wrote up an agreement that gave the company Levi Strauss and company exclusive rights to sell the pants on the west coast and that quote rights outside of the Pacific Coast and territory shall be equally divided between ourselves and Davis Davis agreed to these terms and made it very clear that this was not just about the Rivets. It was also about the cut and construction. He offered to oversee the manufacturer of the pants. Either New York or in San Francisco whichever Strauss preferred in the first patent application filed on behalf of Davis was rejected on the basis that the military had been using rivets in the construction of shoes already and so that just using them on pockets was really not an innovation. Strauss did not accept this. He hired lawyers who specialized in patent law to appeal the case but it was once again rejected in early eighteen. Seventy three Strauss and Davis were preparing another. Go at a patent for these riveted pants. Jacob Davis and his family moved San Francisco in May a revised version of their application was submitted this time with more detail about the distinction between the riveting that they were using on clothes and the way that rivets had been used on shoes just a few weeks later on. May Twentieth Eighteen Seventy Three. The Patent was issued. Strauss paid Davis for the value of his home and store in Reno Nevada and the Davis made their move to San Francisco permanent so that Jacobs could oversee production of this new line of riveted trousers. Strauss later sold this back to Davis for a dollar. Many flipped it. Yeah it was a couple of years later. Bought back his house and shop in Reno and I think It was only like three months. After that that he sold it and at the time they marketed. These new pants as overalls and that were did not have the commutation of BIB overalls that it would have today They were sometimes called waist. Overalls like basically part of that was because you could wear them over other pants But people were them without pants underneath. It is well. The first batches went out in June of eighteen. Seventy three so. That was just a month after the patent was approved at nineteen fifty per dozen pair so Nineteen dollars and fifty cents for a dozen of them. This was a substantial increase over previous market prices for similar garments more than a dollar more than individual purchasers were used to seeing so for a A merchant that was the middleman to have to pay. That much per pant was significant. They really had to like explain. No these are going to last you so long. They are way stronger. Am better than other pants. Strauss opened up a new factory location. So they can start more serious production the following month. A place an ad for first class female sewing machine operators these operators had to bring their own sewing machines that were suitable for heavy work. Yeah he even in the advertisement. They laid out which sewing machine models would be acceptable. And if you didn't have one of those don't apply for the job Soon Levi Strauss and company also started selling riveted duck coats for hunting and by the end of eighteen. Seventy three they had sold an estimated twenty thousand garments. The pants that they were making it. The beginning bore pretty much all the characteristics. We see on Levi's today although they have shifted in style a little bit so they had copper rivets they had that mustard orange thread for stitching in the curvy. Shallow v Stitching on the back pocket the year after Levi and Jacobs riveted overall hit the market Levi was named by the New York Times. As one of San Francisco's millionaires. He had also set up the company which was basically functioning on its own as a separate entity from J Strauss brother in company Co partnership with his brothers so that they would have power of attorney and be able to make decisions about the business in the event that he was not able to. Yeah he kind of realized. This has grown massive and I can't be the only one who makes decisions if something goes awry and that same year Levi Strauss also sued a competitor who started using rivets in the construction of their pants that other manufacturer Abe L. Felt in company pulled all the product that they had made from shelves once that suit was filed but Strauss continued the legal action anyway in order to deter others from infringing on the patent does a couple of years later Levi Strauss and his brothers set up an East Coast Factory under Jacob Davis's supervisions to make riveted goods but in late eighteen. Seventy six another manufacturer. H W king and companies started making riveted goods as well Levi. Strauss has companies numbers drop even as they brought an infringement suit against this other company after a four year legal battle the case was decided in favor of Levi Strauss and company. Yeah that's a long time for that to drag out. But they were like nope. We're going to do it Eventually they did start as their patents did not last forever and they started realizing that they had to do branding so that their genes were completely recognizable from others and people could ask for them by. Look that's how they develop their logo. They kind of knew they couldn't stave off other people using rivets forever So they've got very savvy about how they presented their clothes. There were also two more deaths in the Strauss family in eighteen seventy four. Levi's brother-in-law and senior partner. David Stern died in January and in August one of David's sons who was just eighteen died for reasons that have been lost to the historical record and even as their losses the family also continued to grow through marriage and children and it reached a point where fourteen people were all living in Strauss's house including himself so they moved to a larger home on Leavenworth. Street in the eighteen seventies Chinese immigrants in California were being viewed with increasing hostility as they competed for jobs with white laborers in the same market with fewer and fewer opportunities in eighteen. Seventy six strauss was named an expose that appeared in the daily morning call. The claim was that Strauss was employing. Five hundred Chinese workers a rebuttal appeared in the San Francisco. Chronicle the following day saying that the company employed exactly one Chinese person and that person was in a position that white laborers had quote again and again tried and failed to do that. Position was cutting the dense fabrics. That were used to make these overalls generally Levi Strauss and company like a lot of manufacturers at the time really stressed in their advertising their goods were made by white labor. Yeah this was a whole problematic thing. We're GONNA talk about it a little more in a moment but We've talked before also on the show about the racism that became rampant particularly on the west coast of the United States during this time towards Asian immigrants And he continued to do business with Chinese merchants. He did not seem to have an aversion to them at all or be racist towards them in terms of business partnerships. But he kind of knew that if he was like yes. I hire Chinese leaders that it would tank the company because it would not trust him anymore so he was complicit in this whole system. But that doesn't seem to reflect a like a personal outward racism Rano and in eighteen eighty. He worked on the committee. That arranged the San Francisco Visit President. Rutherford B Hayes. This was kind of funny because it was reported that Mr and Mrs Levi Strauss attended a dinner in the president's honor but leave. I never got married so it is unclear if he had taken a female relative to this event or an acquaintance or if the paper simply got the facts wrong and January of eight hundred eighty one. The San Francisco Bulletin published the details of Levi. Strauss's funeral there's one problem. He was very much alive at this point..

"And at the time they marketed these new pants as overalls, and that were did not have the commutation of BIB overalls that it would have today They were sometimes called waist overalls. Basically, part of that was because you could wear them over other pants but people were them without pants underneath. It is well. The first batches went out in June of eighteen seventy three. Three so that was just a month after the patent was approved at nineteen, fifty per dozen pair, so nineteen dollars and fifty cents for a dozen of them. This was a substantial increase over previous market prices for similar garments more than a dollar. More than individual purchasers were used to seeing so for a a merchant that was the middleman to have to pay. That much per pant was significant. They really had to like explain. No, these are going to last you so long. They are way stronger am better than other pants. Strauss opened up a new factory location, so they can start more serious production the following month, a place, an ad for first class female sewing machine operators, these operators had to bring their own sewing machines that were suitable for heavy work. Yeah, he even in the advertisement they laid out which sewing machine models would be acceptable, and if you didn't have one of those, don't apply for the job. Soon Levi Strauss, and company also started selling riveted duck coats for hunting, and by the end of eighteen, seventy three, they had sold an estimated twenty thousand garments the pants that they were making it. The beginning bore pretty much all the characteristics we see on Levi's today, although they have shifted in style a little bit, so they had copper rivets. Mustard, orange thread for stitching in the curvy Shallow v stitching on the back pocket the year after Levi and Jacobs riveted overall hit the market.

"That is friends without the our best fiends. So Levi quickly established a list of regular clientele and even if he had received shipment of that first load of freight that his brothers had sent there. Were already two other shipments on the way he was doing business. Ostensibly for the company that his brother founded which was j Strauss and brother but he was invoicing clients sort of as a separate business as just Levi Strauss in July eighteen fifty-five Levi sent a shipment of gold. Back to his brother's this was valued at a little over ten thousand dollars at the time. Which is estimated to be close to a quarter of a million dollars in modern currency? Of course it's really difficult to make those estimates. Clearly the California office was doing really well in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year. It didn't seem to impact Strauss by the end of eighteen fifty-five he'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah one of the things. That really made his business. It'll come up over and over that. Even when they are difficulties they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics so it was a really smart business to be in the in the first place in eighteen fifty six saw continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise in California Levi. Sister Fogler who had changed her name to fanny when she moved to the United States. Move to San Francisco with her husband. David stearns and their children assist with the growing responsibilities of the business and his brother. Louis also join them. It is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well and for the first time since moving to the US leave. I actually had a home with an address that was separate from his business. Not living above it or Within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year it went from J Strauss and brother to j Strauss brother and company maybe to acknowledge Levi's contribution but on all records in California it was listed as Levi Strauss Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had an eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars eventually in the late. Eighteen sixty s Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company recognizing his family members contributions eighteen fifty six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance which was a vigilante group. Made up largely of merchants that formed to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence while business and politics had largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men in power led to the committee of vigilance nominating and eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. Oh they picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office because they thought that was safer and while Strauss did not seem to have any political ambitions of his own he did back the political efforts of the committee. Those committees there were several of them in several places at this time period and in some places their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violence capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there but his involvement was really about electing to city positions and there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco several years prior to this. That was much more of like a vigilante law force. That thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on and the police were obviously to their minds. Not doing anything about it. So that existed in San Francisco as well although he was not part of that at the time and eighteen fifty seven. The Strauss family experienced a financial loss in September the S. Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama including a large shipment of gold went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic. More than four hundred people died at an estimated one point. Five million dollars of gold was lost including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss brother in company from Levi Strauss and company incidentally the wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America set off a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was it was a significant economic disruption and yet as seems to be the pattern of his life Levi Strauss weathered the storm part of this was because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant. He didn't have to reassure a supplier of his good credit and be like no. I know I lost some money but I will make it up to you. They're like yeah. We'll just keep it going. So the Strauss family continued business as usual and because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing Levi's business flourished as other shutdown by the end of the year. He was shipping gold to New York once again and he had expanded to have offices in the city that were actually separate from his warehouse. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war. San Francisco's citizens realized they could eventually be impacted by it. California had entered the Union as a free state as outlined in the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the Union there were some concerns about some government officials wanting to allied with the confederacy after a pro union rally in the city on. May Eleventh Eighteen Sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and hosts streets. A resolution was put forth that formed a Union Committee of Thirty Four. This is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union. Fill vacant government posts and keep an eye out for treason Levi. Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group and one of only three Jewish men included. Yeah they were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating California who were pro slavery and that it was gonNA completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state and particularly in a large city like San Francisco so they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. When the troops that were stationed at the Presidio? Were sent east to fight. It really left the people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy and they were fearful without protection now. Volunteer group known as the Home Guard was founded that consisted of three thousand men and it sort of served as a makeshift military force. The Home Guard and the Union Committee of thirty four actually disbanded though when Leland Stanford was elected California Governor Stanford was a pro union Republican. Who is very well respected successful and powerful so the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that led to the formation of those two groups were pretty diminished under his leadership. Strauss in his California business continued to do well through all of this and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country afloat through the civil war. Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city which often sold as a prophet after holding them. For some time Levi Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen. Sixty seven was a four story building on Battery Street but clearly showed the company's Success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy service and the ability of its employees to satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used. The word empowered to describe the Salespeople and clerks at Levi Strauss As being able they were empowered to meet the needs. Agree to deals with clients which is sort of a weird word to be using in the eighteen sixties but there was Unfortunately the late eighteen sixty s also came with family. Loss as Levi's half sister. Mary died in eighteen sixty six and his mother. Rebecca pass three years later after Rebecca's death Levi traveled back to New York and he stayed there for a month presumably to help settle accounts and get her affairs. In order. There is also an embezzlement scandal at Levi. Strauss and company are in October of eighteen. Sixty six when news broke that a bookkeeper had taken five hundred thousand dollars and left the country while the company not wanting to scare away business partners said that there was no money missing. It also made a statement in an advertisement that the man in question. Es Goodman was no longer with the company it was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi Strauss and company. This mix. The messages seemed to below over while Mr Goodman never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company NOR LEVI. Strauss personally seems to suffer. Any negative fallout from it. Yeah that's one of those stories were it's like. They completely claimed that it had not happened. So there is no record of it happening but then the fact that they're also like but also if you talk to that guy he doesn't You Know I. It does seem like it's a little bit of a weird combination of things to put out in the press. The company continued explosive. Growth right into the eighteen seventies as Levi who obviously had an impressive business instinct realized that he needed to expand into international markets. At that point his business had expanded to supply merchants. All along the Western seaboard into Oregon and Montana but he was also expanding farther into the American southwest and then he started to reach out to potential clients in Canada Mexico and Hawaii coming up. We're going to dive into the thing that the Levi Strauss name is most closely associated with today. Which is blue jeans? I.

"Bottom. You're looking good America. You're shaving with Barbara Salt for all the latest headlines. Information sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day. So we told you. Yesterday John Salley played for so many interesting teams. He played for the bad boy Pistons. The Michael Jordan Lakers the shack co Michael Jordan Bulls the shack. Kobe Lakers and billy had such a good idea stu gods because when we asked John Salley about his most interesting experience he said the Miami Heat and then I don't know where. He mentioned that he had a long running feud with Hank Goldberg. Billy Allison has been friends with Hank Goldberg for years. Billy tried to get Hank Goldberg to come on with John. Salley right now as a surprise. And what happened billy? Hank Goldberg a decline. The request as it was related to me. He said he did think he was good. While he was on the Pistons he was a fan of his. Tv work but He stands by what he said on the heat and I don't think he's a fan of Dan. It's to obtain fan of ours is the reason that he won't come on. Here would have been a good bit to do John Salley. I mean for years every day I would get that Nanna tongue. Sandwich doesn't like me. That is so disgusting it really is First of all John Salley with us on. Espn radio odd. John is a tongue sandwich. Disgusting Targets Guide when I worked in a Deli. It wasn't and liverwurst was great but that explains why at such a mouth about me and it was so funny he would it. You can tell getting some from somebody inside the Miami Heat because he would go at me. I would request to say. Let me come on your show. Let me battle. You would words. He would not do it when he got. Espn I was like I want to curse this guy out but you know what he did what he was I guess made to do. He just made my life. They're miserable when it came to radio and he didn't know that this was my thing he didn't know. I was going to be media when I retired but I didn't. I didn't kill him. I just you know just looked at it and said don't be like that. So once again he punched out. He could've caleb come on the show and we would have. We would have had a ball at his expense. Obviously but he was smart to stay his distance. What is the story or stories behind you being in bad boys and bad boys two? Okay so I got bad boys one because Martin Lawrence turn fifty five. Yesterday I talked to my guy. He's a I'm trying to put him on this Vegan Diet he I went to visit him on. Set and Michael Bay has directed by Nike Commercial. And I heard him yell it and he said we got to put him in a movie. He's funny next thing. You know when bad boys two was coming around Jerry. Bruckheimer said I need you on this show and I was doing best damn sports so period on fought so I was doing via satellite from Miami and it was great right now. I'm on a new series called. La's finest on spectrum TV. Which is Gabrielle? Union Jessica Alba? It's the TV varies in a bad boy. Too bad girls in La and play Fletcher in that row because You see bad boys three at a whole different crew and they only bought three people back but it was a it to me. It was the thing I could've ever done. I was lucky I got four hundred. Seventy four dollars The first one but the residuals winds up coming back pretty good baby pretty good. Wait a minute how good explain that to me. How does that? How does that business work? Where you get four hundred seventy four dollars for your initial appearance in bad boys and then what are the checks? Look like I wind up making seventy two thousand dollars after the set and done just some bad boys one and I made more than that with bad boys two because my salary went from four hundred and seventy dollars for the first one to twenty thousand for the second one For Week pretty much the way to do it. Yeah the movies they. They pay pretty well the moves to. What do you have for John Salley? Sal I'm wondering just because everyone's excited about the Jordan documentary in the balls and you guys were such a big part of that story of Michael Jordan story really in general and I'm wondering do you have any sort of regret once Jordan and the Bulls finally got past your Pinson. Steve Do you guys do you? Or don't do any of your teammates have any shorter. Regret walking off that court early. Not Shaking Michael Said Okay so Puerto Record and I know my teammates are GonNa hate it. I always say this But it so the deal is in nineteen eighty Adrian. Debt is on the foul line. Larry Bird Danny Aines Robert Paris Kevin McHale. They straight through and out of the Silver Dome and and Kevin McKell turned around and gives Isaiah pound and says bring the trophy home. No one said anything. That's how they handed it. They didn't shake hands. They didn't say good fight. They just walked off the court while Adrian deadly was on the Court. Bill embiid turns and says let's hand the Bulls The let's have the balls the same way the Celtics in it to us. I aileen over the chuck and I go put me back again. And he goes so you can't get any more points man. The game is over. It's done go. No no no. Something's about to go down. I need to be in court now. Michael is my guy like. I said the nineteen eighty two and he's my fraternity brother. Omega sci-fi incorporated the best Black Pratt and then I'm hanging with Scott and and you know after the game. I'm I'm not the same person that will kill you when I'm playing against so I didn't think it was gonna be a cool thing. Man Scott Hastings stayed around. Shook everybody's head but that's the way. The Celtics handed us the Eastern Conference Championship. And that's the way we felt. We should the handed to the Bulls. What happened is Michael Jordan finally spoke and said well you know the Pistons? Just do what they do you know classless and so once the Messiah calls you classless. You Know You. You can't win you just can't with wait. A minute broke ranks. You broke ranks. I didn't know you broke ranks and you were shaken hands out there I love. It's to God's has trapped in a corner gotcha forty years later here where he's able to hammer like how we know. No No let me tell you man I don't do. I don't any part of my life. I don't do say he stuff I don't care what it is man. I don't do say the shady good people bring good people and and it proves it hangover. Go back to the same yesterday.

"Stu Gods Ethan. Strauss had a story the other day as part of he writes for the athletic. He's the author of the new book. The victory machine the making and unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty. You can get it wherever books are sold. But he reported a trade. That floored me that was completed. It was done Steph curry and Klay Thompson for Chris. Paul both sides agreed but Chris. Paul did not agree to an extension and so everything changed. I don't know if there's a lot more surprising than that in the book but Ethan Strauss joins us now on ESPN radio. Thank you Ethan. For making the time can you tell me how Not How you found that out but how surprised you were when you found out That that trade was something that had an all for? All intents and purposes been completed. I can't say I was too shocked. But there is a contingent of GM's in the league. I will say who watched this warriors success and grousing grumble and they go. They didn't know everything they didn't have it all figured it out. They weren't light years ahead. They were treated steph curry for the right price. And it's understandable we forget that steph curry wasn't assumed attorney in any kind of superstar and he had these ankle issues and as far as creating. Klay Thompson in two thousand eleven. Who Was Klay Thompson? He was the first round draft pick and nobody was predicting multiple all stars from. Except maybe Jerry West so all of these things. In retrospect they seem very shocking at the time. The warriors were laughing stock They weren't thought to have championship level players. So it makes sense. Try to make a move so He the IT ended up being trained for Eric Gordon and Chris Cayman but what would have changed in your I understand. It's a speculative question but Ethan Strauss. What plays out differently. If Merely Chris Paul agrees to an extension Golden State. I mean they probably don't win these championships. But what's interesting is the mentality of the warriors specifically at the top level specifically the owner Joe Lak- which is this idea of people from the outside will say Oh. This means that they didn't know what they were doing. This means that they got lucky. But I think the Laker perspective is what we would have made it work in one championships with Chris. Paul you know we would have made it. Work Organization is better or light years ahead. We've quality up and down the ranks. We would have made that particular decision workout in the way it worked out by getting or keeping staff and keeping Klay Thompson. That's the mentality from on high. I think it's crazy. But it was also probably essential to the warriors punching above their weight after drill lake about the but if they make that trade aren't. Aren't we possibly looking at Steph Curry Klay Thompson and Anthony Davis together like they might not have lost that much that season to get Anthony Davis? So maybe that's mood but isn't that something like what we're looking at. That's something that we're looking at. But I gotta say Dan. I am shocked. I am shocked. I've written a book that has to do with how winning championships doesn't bring happiness that has to do with the Darwinian crucible of the NBA and how it's more like any given Sunday behind the scenes than whatever. These team accounts are putting out an instagram cutesy emojis. That has all these themes that seem to be very much in the Dan. Lebatardshow wheelhouse that you've become transaction guide. What happened what happened Dan. Because if I ask you one of the most interesting things in your book nobody will read the book. Because you'll just tell people all the time trying to help you sell your book but against the transaction that it needs are you. Can you believe it was Stephan Clay but go ahead sell your book bunny? Because I don't want to give away to the audience. I have given away a little excerpt out. There were K. D. at a shoot around is screaming at me. You don't know what makes me happy for the other media members do that's potentially interesting. I suppose that's something to discuss this out there. I've already given that part away so that would be A. That's that's still worth discussing. I think I'm interested in why you sat on some of this news for so long for the book because that's my kind of journalism. I proud of your answer is yes ethan. I heard you guys talking about that and I have to say I was touched. I didn't know that you guys knew that you were trying to manipulate me for years to give away so they noticed it noticed it. I was like Oh they. They noticed they really noticed. That added that I'd owed rights for the athletic. He's the author of a new book. Victory machine the making and unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty. What are some of the new reported details in there that the audience will find interesting? The new report details in the entire book. You didn't read the copy. I set you over over digital dad. This is this is a good issue number one now while I heard I heard from your publicist. You've got one of those now and I told. Her publicist yes. Please send me the copy of the book that you would like to hear. And I'm still waiting for that. Ethan Strauss Oh boss especially coming from a very good chance. This is in some sort of folder and he has no idea access. Okay you should have gotten a copy earlier but the whole shelter in place screw things up but yeah I mean. There are a lot of reported details in there about how they formed the team. You get a lot of Behind the scenes of how they drafted guys and the dynamics between Lak- incur. Obviously Katie. And I think you get a good picture of how the players were just trying to keep K. D. Happy enough to win a championship in that final season. And they knew he was gone. I mean that's clear. They knew that he was gone. It was not a shock as to what happened. That's a dream on him yelling at each other in that game back in the fall but their perspective is players was can we make sure he doesn't float away and we can have this if you. WanNa call it that last dance. I guess like the Bulls had the warriors like the Chicago. Bulls knew it was coming to an end and we're trying to make the most of it and they came really close but for the injuries was the worst of it between Draymond and and and durant. Did we see it or was it a great deal worse than that? I think we saw. I think that was the inflection point. It was building to that level. I think probably felt you know. I'm not going to tiptoe around this just because everybody is tiptoeing around it but in the NBA in the NBA. The superstar gets what he wants the NBA. You have to do whatever you need to do to make the superstar happy when Katie. Got Mad at me and yelled at me in the press conference the players afterwards when. I was in the locker room or trying to get me to apologize to Because from their perspective. That's what you gotta do. You know. That's what they thought. I didn't think I really needed to do that. Yeah it's good when superstars aren't mad at you and they can give you more details but I didn't think it was essential but their perspective being within the NBA. Is the superstar. Needs to be apologized to I think Andre said to me man you married. I'm married sometimes. You just go to apologize for some stuff. You didn't even do and handle a superstar doing every day And I'm wondering how do you think history will remember Kevin Durant? How are we gonNA look back at Kevin Durant career? Yeah it's a fascinating question. We're probably going to underrate him. Because he wants. So badly for us to rate improperly. We do something as human beings where we can tell that you want the love. We're not gonNA give you the love if you're secure and you feel like don't need it like Klay Thompson we're going to give you all the adulation and so that's the paradox. That Katy trapped in. And we've got this other weird element that I like to talk about which NBA teams. We like to focus on the fall of the dynasty more so than the rise. After it's over you know David Halberstam's book on the Blazers. It's not about them winning the championship. It's about what happens afterwards shocking. Colby when we say shocking Kobe. We're off talking about the Egos and how it all broke apart rather than how they played together and with my book or with the last dance which we're all gather around and watch on Sunday on the Chicago Bulls. That's about the end of the dynasty. So I think what's happened at the end with Katie is probably going to take more precedence. what happened at the beginning and in Oklahoma City on the way to getting there the victory machine the making and unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty. Get it wherever books are sold eighth and thank you for being with us. We appreciate it sir. Thanks for having me guys coming next. We will make fun of what Quin Snyder looks. Like in Quarantine..

Will Early Retirements Crash the Economy?

"I recently saw a poll that was sponsored by T. Rowe price it showed forty three percent of millennial workers expect to retire before the age of sixty five that compares to thirty five percent of those from generation. X. which is ages forty fifty five. This survey was referenced in an article by Gina Smith Alec of The New York Times. The article was titled. How millennials could make the FEDS job harder. The subtitle they love the idea of retiring early that could diminish the Federal Reserve's firepower the article reference. How millennials in order to leave the workforce early with need to build up massive retirement funds and buy less things and that lack of demand could hit consumption which would slow economic growth leading to ever lower interest rates. The author mentioned the paradox of Thrift. Which is if everyone tries to save in mass that could lead to lower economic growth lower inflation and trip up the economy. She writes when consumers save a big portion of their income. They are not spending as much on dinners out. Movie Nights and cars businesses respond by investing less than equipment and technology and productivity stalls. Bosses are unwilling to pay their workers more for the same output and week pay gains further restrain spending. Would a wave of early retirements cause such economic turmoil? That's what we're going to explore in this episode. The fear that early retirements would cause economic. Turmoil is not new. It was prevalent in the nineteen twenties. Which are sometimes called the roaring twenties because it was a period where economic growth was very very strong in the US was following World War. One Manufacturers really hit their stride. They were able to produce goods that were affordable to the masses the economy the measure of output gross domestic product grew by about forty two percent during the nineteen twenties that compares to about twenty five percent economic growth during the most recent decade real per capita GDP. The amount of output produced per person grew from sixty five hundred dollars. This is on a real basis so negative inflation to nine thousand seven dollars about a forty percent increase between twenty ten and twenty nineteen real per capita GDP in the US grew from just under fifty thousand to just over fifty eight thousand about a seventeen percent increase now is from a smaller base in the nineteen twenties but it was a period expansion even greater than the expansion of the most recent decade where we didn't have any economic recessions in the US in the nineteen twenties. There were several brief periods of economic contraction. But generally speaking the economy was doing very very well Lincoln steffens. He's an investigative journalist was known for his investigations on corruption. Business in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight he wrote big business in America is producing what the socialist held up as their goal food shelter and clothing for all president. Calvin coolidge said. This is essentially a business country. Journalist Samuel Strauss in the Atlantic monthly in one thousand nine hundred eighty four wrote. This is our proudest boast. The American citizen has more comforts and conveniences than kings had two hundred years ago. He pointed out the signs of that prosperity. Automobiles radios buildings bathrooms furs furniture. Ocean LINERS HOTELS BRIDGES VACUUM CLEANERS. Cameras Bus Lines Electric Toasters moving pictures. Railway cars packaged foods telephones. Pianos novels comics. These things were made available. Because of mass production efficiencies in the manufacturing process they were also accessible to the public not only because the prices were affordable but credit was available installment purchases

"Rossini put thunderstorms into several of his operas before they were movies with spaceships and dinosaurs musical. Thunderstorms were state of the art entertainment special effects so composers love to use them. Probably the most famous musical thunderstorm by someone other than Rossini is the one Ludwik on Beethoven put into his symphony number six after the thunder and lightning in that ferocious storm. The Sun comes out and you can just feel everything dry off and warm up In a set of symphonies. He called morning noon and evening. Frontiers of Haydn included a thunderstorm in the last movement of evening his symphony number eight. There's a lot of weather especially thunderstorm activity in Antonio Vivaldi's four seasons but Vivaldi wrote another concerto called storm at sea in which you can hear the waves being whipped up by the wind and rain lose one of the most famous circus. Marches is thunder and blazes. Boulos Food Chick. The thunder stuff comes at the very beginning. Henry fillmore wrote a march called Rolling Thunder. There was a composer in John Fields. Day who wrote a piano concerto called the storm so field decided to top him with a concerto called. The fire caused by the storm. Sure not only does field have thunder and rain. You can also hear the fire exploding. When Richard Strauss put a thunderstorm into his Alpine symphony he went all out. Strauss included parts for a wind machine and a thunder sheet a large piece of flexible metal. That you shake to make the sound of thunder. Even voices can imitate a thunderstorm in his saint. Matthew Passion Johann Sebastian Bach has a double chorus saying the German words. Blitzer and Donna. But this has nothing to do with reindeer. Blitzer and Donna are German for lightning and thunder.

This month's composer Johann Strauss junior was a member of a musical family that entertained the entire city of Vienna for much of the Nineteenth Century Johann Strauss junior's junior's father also named Johann Strauss was born in the tavern that his parents owned and ran Strauss senior was fascinated by the musicians who worked in the tavern when he started playing violin I in someone else's dance orchestra and then he started his own orchestra eventually. Johann Strauss had quite a few orchestras with his name on them. Since everyone wanted the higher the official Johann Strauss orchestra and Strauss had groups performing all over Vienna on the same night he always showed up to conduct a few numbers with each one making them all official Johann Strauss Orchestra Johann Strauss senior had some. I'm very good business ideas. Even if he never seemed to have any money he took his stance orchestra on tour something no one had ever done before and when the orchestra wasn't the playing for dances or touring Strauss held outdoor concerts in Vienna on those concerts he also programmed music from popular symphonies and Apperance Johann Strauss senior had a very interesting way of leading leading an orchestra which his son Johan Junior adopted two. They didn't use a baton the little wand most conductors wave to beat time and keep the orchestra together together instead the Strauss's played violin along with the orchestra but they played standing up using their violin bows and the swaying of their bodies. He's to conduct in the next oldest brother. After Johann Junior was Yosef Straus Joseph followed in his older brother's footsteps by not going into the profession. His father chose for him in his case. The military at first Joseph Awesome Strauss became an architect but he also published two math books wrote poetry and plays and invented a street cleaning machine for the city of Vienna of course he was also very musical. He played piano and sang one year. When Johann Strauss junior got very sick he convinced his brother Joseph take over the orchestra for a while that was it Joseph Strauss was now in the family business. Joseph Johann Strauss junior junior also wrote music together. This POLKA is by both of them and then there was the youngest brother Edward Strauss he he was very good at languages and plan to go into the foreign service but he was also good at playing the harp the piano the violin and you guessed it he wound conducting and composing for the Strauss Orchestra to every once in a while all three Strauss brothers teamed up to write a piece of music but Edwards Strauss was very jealous Ellis of his oldest brother who was clearly the most talented of all the Strauss's when Johann Strauss junior died Edward Strauss built a huge fire and burned all of his brothers unpublished music. No one knows how many Strauss waltzes marches and pocos went up in flames. That's the trick Trach Polka by Johann Strauss junior one of the pieces that fortunately did not go up in flames. Both Johann Strauss's junior and senior were known as the waltz king the wants itself was King of music and Vienna during their lifetimes and next week's classics for kids.

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm naomi louis. You'd think that someone whose father was a musician wouldn't have any trouble talking his dad into letting him be a musician too right. Johann strauss junior was born in eighteen twenty five in vienna where his father johann strauss senior was is enormously famous as a violinist conductor and composer of dance music but johann strauss senior wanted his oldest son to be a banker. He was very angry when he found out that hunt junior was studying violin behind his back and with one of the violinists in his own orchestra it was yo- hon junior's is mother who encouraged him to be musician and when you hunt stress junior was nineteen. He started his own orchestra and held his first public concert concert. He was in direct competition with his father throughout his life. He was known as johann strauss. The sun fans of the father went to the son's. I concert intending to boo but they wound up cheering because it was clear that the younger strauss was a great conductor and composer to when johan senior are died johan junior combined his orchestra with the best players from his father's orchestra and people began to realize that the younger strauss was even better than and his father johann strauss junior <unk> had a long running musical partnership with a male chorus in vienna and one of his best known waltzes was originally written for that chorus strauss didn't think he was very good at setting words to music and in this case he was right especially since the word sang the praises of electric lights which were brand new in vienna back then the waltz was a flop and it wasn't until strauss conducted it in paris a few months later without the words that on the beautiful blue danube became his biggest just hit <music> <music> straus took his orchestra on tour all over the world. They spent summers at a russian resort and appeared in paris london boston and new york at every stop along the way johann strauss junior wrote music he composed pieces dedicated to all the places he visited and for just about every major historical events in his lifetime for example the emperor waltz celebrated austrian emperor franz josef's fortieth anniversary on the throne <music> operettas. The pieces combining singing numbers for soloists in chorus with spoken dialogue were very popular in johann strauss's time the main operetta composer of the day was jacques offenbach who lived and worked in france when theater directors in vienna got tired of paying to import his operettas they convinced strauss to write some he wound up composing sixteen operettas leaders including deflator mouse the bat which was such a success that it still performed every new year's eve in vienna mm-hmm <music>. Many of his fellow composers really admired joe hunt strauss when yohannes brahms was asked to give an autograph to strauss's wife he scribbled the opening notes of the blue danube waltz and signed the music unfortunately unfortunately not by johannes brahms strauss was known as the waltz king but for the fancy balls of the viennese carnival season he wrote all kinds of other dance music to the johann junior was just one talented member of the strauss family next week. You'll meet the rest of them. I'm a omi lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with tim lander at w._g. U._c. cincinnati please join me again for more classics for kids.

"Of course, it's really difficult to make estimates. Clearly, the California office was doing really well, in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year it didn't seem to impact Strauss by. At the end of eighteen fifty-five. He'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah. One of the things that really made his business. It'll come over and over that, even when they are difficulties they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well, like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics. So it was a really smart business to be in the first place in eighteen fifty six continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise, in California, Levi, sister Fogler, who had changed her name to fanny, when she moved to the United States move to San Francisco. With her husband, David Stearns, and their children to assist with the growing responsibilities of the business, and his brother Louis also join them, it is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well. And for the first time since moving to the US leave, I actually had a home with an address, that was separate from his business, not living above it or within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year. It went from j Strauss and brother to J, Strauss, brother and company maybe to Levi's contribution, but on all records in California. It was listed as Levi, Strauss. Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had in eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars. Eventually in the late eighteen sixties Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company, right? He knows his family members contributions. Eighteen fifty six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved, along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance, which was vigilante group made up largely of merchants that form to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence, while business and politics, largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over, how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men. In power led to the committee of vigilance nominating, and eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. So they've picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office because they thought that was safer. And while Strauss did not seem to have any political. Ambitions of his own. He did back the political efforts of the committee, those committees. There were several of them in several places at this time period. And in some places their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violent capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there, but his involvement was really about electing business to city positions. And there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco. Several years prior to this. That was much more of lake of vigilante law force that thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on. And the police that were obviously to their minds, not doing anything about it. So that existed in San Francisco as well although he was not part about time eighteen fifty seven, the Strauss, family experienced, a financial loss and September the Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama. Including a large shipment of gold went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic. More than four hundred people died at an estimated one point five million dollars of gold was lost, including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss, brother and company from Levi, Strauss and company. The wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in nineteen Eighty-eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America, a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was it was a significant economic disruption. And yet as seems to be the pattern of his life, Levi, Strauss, whether this storm part of this is because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant he didn't have to reassure a supplier of his good credit and be like, no, no, I know. I lost some money, but I will make it up to you. They're like, yeah, we'll just keep going. So the Strauss family, continued, businesses usual. And because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing. Levi's business flourished as other shutdown by the end of the year. He was shipping gold to New York once again, and he had expanded to have offices in the city that were actually separate from his warehouse. House. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family, which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials, as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war, San Francisco's citizens realize they could eventually be impacted by California had entered the union as the Free State as outlined in the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the union. There were some concerns about some government officials wanting to allied with the confederacy. After a pro union rally in the city on may eleventh eighteen sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and posts streets, a resolution was put forth formed a union committee of thirty four this is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union fill vacant government, posts, and keep an eye out for treason, Levi, Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group and one of only three Jewish men included. They were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating, California, who were pro slavery, and that it was going to completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state, and particularly in a large city like San Francisco, so they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. And when the troops that were stationed at the Presidio were sent east to fight it really left. The people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy and they were fearful without protection, Navan tier group known as the home guard was found. Did that consisted of three thousand men and it sort of served as a makeshift, military force, the home guard and the union committee of thirty four actually disbanded though? When Leland Stanford was elected, California, governor, Stanford was a pro union Republican who was very well respected successful and powerful. So the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that led to the formation of those two groups for pretty diminished under his leadership Strauss, and his California business continued to do well through all of this, and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country of float through the civil war Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city, which he often sold as a profit after holding them for some time Levi, Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen. Sixty seven was a four story building on battery street, but clearly showed the company's success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy. Service and the ability of its employees to satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used the word empowered to describe the sales people and clerks at Levi, Strauss. As being able like they were empowered to meet the needs agree to deals with clients, which is sort of a weird word to be using in the eighteen sixties. But there it was. Unfortunately, the late eighteen sixties also came with family loss, as Levi's half sister. Mary died in eighteen sixty six and his mother Rebecca past three years later after Rebecca's death Levi traveled back to New York. And he stayed there for a month, presumably to help settle accounts and get her affairs in order. There's also an embezzlement scandal Levi, Strauss and company are in October. Eighteen sixty six when news broke that a bookkeeper had taken five hundred thousand dollars left the country, while the company, not wanting to scare away, business partners, said that there was no money missing. It also made a statement in an advertisement that the man in question, ES Goodman was no longer with the company. It was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi, Strauss and company, this mix of messages seem to below over while Mr. Goodman, never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer. Quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company nor Levi, Strauss person. Finally seem to suffer any negative fallout from it either..

It will last you a long time and to please one of his tailoring customers who came into order work pants for her husband who apparently wore through them at a pretty good clip Davis used rivets to reinforce the pockets. The story goes that the wife came in because she said, my husband is worn out. All his pants cannot leave the house. I have to come a place this order. So she had to go back with a piece of string and Markley his waistline and other measurements, and then bring it back to the shop and she was delighted, it appeared. Her husband was delated. Jacob leader. Soccer has been around town wearing these pants, so it seemed like everything was going great, and he included that detail those riveted pockets on a number of other pairs of pants because people started to see these pants in town and asked where they came from and could they also get the same ones. And so he started making these pants with duck canvas and riveted pockets for more and more people as the riveted pants pocket became popular with his customers. Davis decided he should patent them, but that was a really expensive process. And the story goes that his wife didn't want him to spend money that they didn't have trying to do it. So along with a payment on an invoice that he's sent to Levi Strauss and company, he also sent two pairs of pants with the proposition that the company apply for the patent in his name. And in return he would give the company half the right. Rights to sell the pants. This is like the most trusting move. I can possibly imagine someone doing. I know. Here's this thing I invented. I would like you to help me Penton it by the way. It's not padded yet, but here it is yet especially having been working on this day in history class and recently recording episodes on people like vilo Farnsworth and Nikola tesla like there are so many stories about a big business. That's like I'm gonna take this patent for MU for no money and accept it. In a lecture that I was watching online of a Levi. Strauss biographer whose book I used for a lot of this. She was saying like to her, this really indicates how trustworthy Levi Strauss was perceived to be by people that just knew his name like he just had this reputation for being a really honest and good man. And so this person completely trusted him with his invention. And there it went and Strauss was no fool. He went for the idea really quickly. He wrote up an agreement that gave the company, Levi Strauss and company exclusive rights to sell the pants on the west coast, and that quote rights outside of the Pacific coast and territory shall be equally divided between ourselves and Davis Davis agreed to these terms and made it very clear that this was not just about the rivets. It was also about the cut and construction. He offered to oversee the manufacturer of the pants, either in New York or in San Francisco, whichever Strauss preferred. And the first patent application filed on behalf of Davis was rejected on the basis that the military had been using rivets in the construction of shoes already. And so that just using them on pockets was really not an innovation. Strauss did not accept this. He hired lawyers who specialized in patent law to appeal the case, but it was once again rejected in early eighteen seventy three, Strauss and Davis worked preparing another. Go at a patent for these riveted pants, Jake Davis and his family moved San Francisco in may revised version of their application was submitted this time with more detail about the distinction between the riveting that they were using on clothes and the way that rivets had been used on shoes. Just a few weeks. Later on may twentieth eighteen seventy three. The patent was issued. Strauss paid Davis for the value of his home and store in Reno, Nevada, and the Davis's made their move to San Francisco permanent. So that Jacobs could oversee production. Of this new line of riveted trousers. Strauss later sold this back to Davis for a dollar many flipped it. You know, it was a couple years later, the tavis bought back his house and shop in Reno. And I think it was only like three months after that that he sold it. And at the time they marketed these new pants as overalls. And that were did not have the connotation of bib overalls. It would have today. They were sometimes called waist overalls. Like basically, part of that was because you could wear them over other pants, but people wore them without pants underneath. It is well, the first batches went out in June of eighteen seventy three. So that was just a month after the patent was approved at nineteen fifty per dozen pair. So nineteen dollars fifty cents for a dozen of them. This was a substantial increase over previous market prices for similar garments more than a dollar more than individual purchasers were used to seeing. So for a a merchant, that was the middleman to have. To pay that much per pant with significant. They really had to like explain, no, these are going to ask you so long. They are way stronger and better than other pants. Strauss opened up a new factory location so they can start more serious production. The following month placed an ad for first class, female sewing machine operators. These operators had to bring their own sewing machines that were suitable for heavy work. Yeah, he even in the advertisement they laid out which sewing machine models would be acceptable in if you didn't have one of those don't apply for the job soon. Levi, Strauss and company also started selling riveted duck coats for hunting. And by the end of eighteen seventy three, they had sold an estimated twenty thousand garments, the pants that they were making it the beginning or pretty much all the characteristics we see on Levi's today, although they have shifted in style a little bit. So they had copper rivets. They had that mustard orange thread for stitching in the curvy shallow v stitching on the back pocket the year. After Levi and Jacobs, riveted overalls hit the market. Levi was named by the New York Times as one of San Francisco's millionaires. He had also set up the company which was basically functioning on its own as a separate entity from j Strauss brother in company co partnership with his brothers so that they would have power of attorney and be able to make decisions about the business in the event that he was not able to. Yeah, he kind of realized this has grown massive and I can't be the only one who makes decisions if something goes awry and that same year Levi, Strauss also sued a competitor who started using rivets in the construction of their pants that other manufacturer, Abe l. felt in company pulled all the product that they had made from shelves once that suit was filed. But Strauss continued the legal action anyway, in order to deter others from infringing on the patent does a couple of years later. Levi Strauss at his brother's set up an east coast factory under Jacob Davis. Supervisions to make riveted goods, but in late eighteen seventy six. Another manufacturer h w king and companies started making riveted goods as well. Levi Strauss. So his company's numbers drop even as they brought an infringement suit against this other company after a four year legal battle, the case was decided in favor of Levi Strauss and company. Yeah, that's a long time for that to drag out, but they were like, Nope, we're going to do it. Eventually they did start as their patents did not last forever and they started realizing that they had to do branding so that their genes were completely recognizable from others, and people could ask for them by look. That's how they developed their logo. They kind of knew they couldn't stave off

"j strauss" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class

"So leave. I quickly established a list of regular clientele and even as he had received shipment of that first load of freight that his brothers had sent, there were already two other shipments on the way he was doing business stints ably for the company that his brother founded, which was j Strauss and brother, but he was invoicing, clients, sort of as a separate business as just Levi Strauss and July eighteen fifty five leave. I sent a shipment of gold back to his brother's. This was valued at a little over ten thousand dollars at the time which is estimated to be close to a quarter of a million dollars in modern currency. Of course, it's really difficult to make those estimates. Clearly the California office was doing really well in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year, it didn't seem to impact Strauss by the end of eighteen fifty-five he'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah, one of the things that really made his business, it'll come up over and over that even when they are difficult. These they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well. Like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics. So it was a really smart business to be in the first place in eighteen fifty six sock continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise in California. Levi sister Fogler who had changed her name to fanny when she moved to the United States, move to San Francisco with her husband, David Stearns and their children to assist with the growing responsibilities of the business and his brother Louis also join them. It is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well. And for the first time since moving to the US Levi actually had a home with an address that was separate from his business, not living above it or within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year. It went from j Strauss and brother to j Strauss brother and company maybe to acknowledge Levi's contribution. But on all records and California, it was listed as Levi Strauss Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had an eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars. Eventually in the late eighteen sixties. Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company, recognizing his family members contributions eighteen fifty. Six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance, which was a vigilante group made up largely of merchants that formed to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence. While business and politics had largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men in power led to the committee of vigilance nominating eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. So they picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office. Because they thought that was safer in while Strauss did not seem to have any political ambitions of his own. He did back the political efforts of the committee, those committees the there were several of them in several places at this time period, and in some places, their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violence capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there, but his involvement was really about electing businessmen to city positions, and there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco several years prior to this that was much more of like of vigilante law force that thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on and the police that were obviously to their minds, not doing anything about it so that existed in San Francisco as well. Although he was not part of that time in eighteen fifty seven, the Strauss family experienced a financial loss in September. Or the Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama, including a large shipment of gold, went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic more than four hundred people died and an estimated one point, five million dollars of gold was lost including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss brother and company from Levi Strauss and company. Incidentally, the wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America set off a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was a significant economic disruption and yet as seems to be the pattern of his life, Levi Strauss weathered. This storm part of this was because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant he didn't have to reassure a supplier. Of his good credit and be like, no, no. I know I lost some money, but I will make it up to you. There were like, yeah, we'll just keep going. So the Strauss family continued business as usual and because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing. Levi's business flourished as other shutdown. By the end of the year, he was shipping gold to New York once again, and he had expanded to have offices in the city that we're actually separate from his warehouse. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family, which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war, San Francisco's citizens realize they could eventually be impacted by it. California had entered the union as a Free State as outlined the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the union, there were some concerns about some government officials wanting to ally with the confederacy after a pro union. Rally in the city on may eleventh eighteen sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and post streets. A resolution was put forth formed a union committee of thirty four. This is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union fill vacant government posts, and keep an eye out for treason. Levi Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group. And one of only three Jewish men included. They were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating, California who were pro slavery and that it was going to completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state and particularly in a large city like San Francisco. So they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. And when the troops that were stationed at the Presidio were sent east to fight, it really left the people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy, and they were fearful without protection. Navan tier group known as the home guard was founded that consisted of three thousand men. And it's sort of served as a makeshift military force the home guard and the union committee of thirty. Four actually disbanded though when Leland Stanford was elected, California governor Stanford was a pro union Republican who is very well respected successful and powerful. So the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that hit led to the formation of those two groups were pretty diminished under his leadership. Strauss in his California business continued to do well through all of this and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country of floats through the civil war. Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city which often sold as a prophet after holding them for some time. Levi, Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen sixty seven. This was a four story building on battery street, but clearly showed the company's success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy service and the ability of its employees. To satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used the word empowered to describe the sales people and clerks at Levi Strauss as being able like they were empowered to meet the needs agree to deals with clients, which is sort of a weird word to be using in the eighteen sixties. But there it was unfortunately, the late eighteen sixties also came with family loss as Levi's half Sister, Mary died in eighteen sixty six and his mother Rebecca past three years later after Rebecca's death, Levi traveled back to New York, and he stayed there for a month presumably to help settle accounts and get her affairs in order. There's also an embezzlement scandal at Levi. Strauss and company are in October eighteen sixty six. When news broke that a bookkeeper had taken five hundred thousand dollars and left the country while the company not wanting to scare away. Business partners said that there was no money missing. It also made a statement in an advertise. Moment that the man in question GS Goodman was no longer with the company. It was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi, Strauss and company. This mix of messages seemed to below over while Mr.. Goodman never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company nor Levi, Strauss personally seems to suffer any negative fallout from it either. Yeah, that's one of those stories were. It's like they completely claimed that it had not happened. So there is no record of it happening, but then the fact that they're also like, but also if you talk to that guy, he doesn't work for us anymore. You know, it does seem like it's a little bit of a weird combination of things to put out in the press. The company continued explosive growth right into the eighteen seventies as Levi who obviously had an impressive business instinct realized that he needed to expand into international markets. At that point, his business had expanded to supply merchants all along the western seaboard and into Oregon and Montana. But he was also expanding farther into the American South west. And then he started to reach out to potential clients in Canada, Mexico, and Hawaii coming up.
